Owen Hart Memorial Men’s Tournament Qualifier: Swerve Strickland VS Darby Allin w/ Sting!

Two rivals who just love beating the hell out of each other meet again here in AEW to open Rampage! Will Fridays still be Swerve’s House? Or will the Relentless One make this his tournament?

The bell rings and fans are fired up as the two stare down. They circle, fans chant, “Whose House?” “Swerve’s House!” Swerve and Darby tie up, break, then stare down again. They go again, Swerve waistlocks but Darby tries to pry free. Swerve lifts, Darby kicks and flails, then shoots to switch. Swerve backs Darby into a corner, Darby lets go, but Darby avoids the heel kick! Swerve grins and fans fire up as the two reset. Darby and Swerve circle, feel things out, knuckle lock, but Darby rolls to wrangle Swerve. Swerve tries to use his legs but Darby grinds him down. Swerve fights up, fans duel, and Darby wrenches.

Swerve chinbars but Darby still WRINGS Swerve out. Darby keeps on the arm, rolls and wrenches to another wristlock, then whips. Swerve reverses but Darby springboards to FLYING ARM-DRAG! But Swerve handsprings through! Fans fire up as the two stand off. Darby rushes in, Swerve rolls him to Eddy Gordo Headscissor! And then arm-drag! Darby turns that into a chinlock! Darby grinds Swerve down but Swerve endures! Fans rally and Swerve fights up. Darby grinds, Swerve pops out the back to hammerlock, only for Darby to switch it onto Swerve. They go around and around, Swerve throws Darby out!

Swerve builds speed to handspring up and over, but Darby gets around him! THROWBACK STUNNER! Darby puts Swerve into the ring and covers, TWO! Swerve bails out and gets to the ramp, but Darby builds speed and DIVES into a KNEE! Swerve shoots Darby outta the air, then drags him up. Darby’s dead weight and fans are fired up. Swerve watches Darby as he goes up to the apron. Darby manages to stand, but Swerve BOOTS him back down! The ref checks on Darby while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Swerve hops down to fetch Darby into the ring. Swerve covers, TWO! Darby is still in this but Swerve keeps his cool. Swerve claps for Sting, then drags Darby into an armlock. Darby throws body shots but Swerve whips Darby into a corner. Swerve back elbows then snapmares, and then goes up the corner to FALLING UPPERCUT! Cover, TWO! Darby crawls away but Swerve catches him to get an arm. Swerve has an over-the-shoulder armlock but Darby throws hands. Swerve just CLUBS Darby down! Darby gets to a corner, Rampage returns to single picture, and Swerve digs his boots in.

The ref counts, Swerve lets off at 3, but Darby has the leg! KNEEBAR! Swerve pries at the hold, SLAPS Darby, but Darby twists the foot! Swerve endures, pries at the hold, clubs at Darby’s legs, but Darby holds on. Fans rally, Swerve stands up to rain down fists! Darby lets go and Swerve drags Darby up with a wristlock, deadlift suplex! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up as Darby is still in this. Swerve drags Darby to a drop zone and goes up. KILL STOMPS miss as Darby dodges! Darby then runs in to CODE RED!! Cover, TWO!! Swerve survives and fans fire up again! Darby hurries up top while Swerve is still down, COFFIN DROP onto knees!

Darby writhes, Swerve aims, “Whose house?” “Swerve’s House!” HOUSE CALL!! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Darby saves himself by mere inches! Swerve goes to the apron and he drags Darby up. Swerve suplexes Darby up, suplex to the floor!! Fans lose their minds as Swerve throws caution to the win, and fans fire up for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” Swerve drags Darby into the ring, but Ricky Starks stalks off commentary. But Sting stands in Starks’ way! Starks backs up, Swerve gets in the ring. Swerve drags Darby up, but Darby trips Swerve and hooks up the leg, LAST SUPPER! Darby wins!!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall (advances to the tournament)

Starks still gets what he wanted in screwing Swerve out of the tournament! Darby is the fifth seed in the Owen Hart Cup, will he take over the tournament?

 

Shawn Spears speaks.

“MJF gave the world a little clue as to who your opponent next week is gonna be, War Piggy. I’d like to add one more. This man is seven feet tall. Now I’ve been in the ring with this guy, and he is bigger. He is faster, War Piggy, he is more dangerous than you. This is a guy who has a lot of PP: Pinnacle Potential.” Wardlow had PP until he bit the hand that fed him, so now Wardlow is all alone. The Chair Man is no longer watching Wardlow’s back, the Chair Man is no longer leading Wardlow to victory. And next week, War Piggy goes to slaughter. Spears is laughing now, but will even a seven foot tall mystery man fall to the Powerbomb Symphony?

 

Chris Jericho names another Sports Entertainer of the Week.

And this week, it’s HIMSELF! He’s awarding himself this award for beating down Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz, and then throwing a fireball into Kingston’s face! Anyone else want a fireball? He is a wizard! But then Santana appears and he SLAPS the headset off Jericho! Santana beats Jericho down while Ortiz is security. AEW security runs out and has Santana and Ortiz stop. Jericho crawls away and has them evict Santana & Ortiz, but will things only escalate from here?

 

Six Woman Tag: Jade Cargill, Red Velvet & Kiera Hogan w/ Mark Sterling VS Trish Adora, Willow Nightingale & Skye Blue!

The still undefeated AEW TBS Champion and her new friends are making their trios debut, forming “The Baddies.” Will #ThatBitchShow be unstoppable even in 3v3? Or will one of Jade’s baddy buddies cost her that spotless record?

The trios sort out, there are baddies in the crowd cheering on Jade as she starts against Skye. They circle, Jade doesn’t even take Skye seriously. Jade tags out to Velvet and they circle. Velvet sucker punches Willow but Skye gets her with haymakers! Skye runs but Velvet dropkicks her down! Velvet drags Skye up, bumps her off buckles and fires off shots! Velvet lets off to stomp away, but lets off again. Velvet digs her boot in while doing the splits, and she mocks the fans crying. Tag to Kiera, she runs around the world to BOOT WASH! The Baddies are fired up as Kiera runs and steps up, only to miss the leg drop!

SUPERKICK from Skye! Cover, but Velvet breaks it! Willow gets in to POUNCE Velvet! That’s payback for the Owen Hart qualifier! Skye gets Kiera up, they both superkick but they both block. They both let the other go, but then Kiera ROUNDHOUSES! Skye tags in Adora, but Kiera sweeps the legs! Kiera runs, step up LEG DROP! Kiera says this is done now, and she tags in Jade. Jade swaggers and talks trash, Kiera feeds Adora to a BOOT! Jade talks more trash, drags Adora up, but Skye and Willow get in! Velvet SPEARS Skye while Kiera SHOTGUNS Willow! Kiera and Velvet clear out Willow and Skye, Adora gets JADED! Cover, The Baddies win!

Winners: Jade Cargill, Red Velvet & Kiera Hogan, by pinfall

The Baddies in the ring fan themselves off, the baddies in the crowd cheer them on. Will these three be so bad that they dominate the whole Women’s Division?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Darby and Swerve.

After their great opener, Darby advances, but Darby says he didn’t want that match to go that way. If Swerve wants to go another round, they can. Swerve says it ain’t no thing. It wasn’t Darby who did that, that’s not his style. If anything, Swerve’s gonna root for Darby in the Owen Hart Tournament. Do it for the Northwest. Starks just went and pissed Swerve off now. Swerve will call his man, Keith, and they’ll get this done.

 

Keith Lee VS Colten Gunn w/ Austin Gunn!

Speaking of the Limitless One, he’s going up against one Son of a Gunn. But will this #AssBoy have no choice but to #BaskInHisGlory?

The bell rings and fans sing “Oh~ Bask in His Glory~!” Colten tunes it out and he flexes. They tie up, Keith holds Colten back and then powers him towards a corner. Colten actually starts to push Keith back, but then Keith puts him in a corner. Keith lets off cleanly and waits on Colten. Colten shoves Keith but fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS!” Keith rushes in but Colten gets around to CLUB and ROCK Keith! Colten puts Keith in a corner, CHOPS him, then gloats. Keith scowls and TOSSES Colten into the corner for fast hands! And then the GRIZZLY MAGNUM! Colten falls over and fans fire up while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Keith stalks Colten to another corner, stands him up, and GRIZZLY- NO! Colten dodges! But Keith is after him, whips him to a corner, and Colten goes up, only to get caught! Keith gives Colten SNAKE EYES and then runs, only for Austin to swipe at him. Keith glares, Austin wants forgiveness but Keith grabs him by the head! Colten rushes in but Keith elbows him away. The ref is busy with Colten, Austin HOTSHOTS Keith and Colten DROPKICKS Keith out of the ring! Colten distracts the ref and Austin fires off forearms! But Keith TOSSES Austin into railing! Colten goes out after Keith with forearms and body shots!

Colten smacks Keith off the apron, then brings him around to haul into the ring. That’s real tricky so Austin helps out. Colten gets in, he drags Keith up, and he bumps Keith off buckles. Colten gloats but Keith GRIZZLY MAGNUMS! Colten hits back, stomps away on Keith, but lets up as the ref counts. Colten stomps some more, then gloats and flexes. Colten comes back to stomp Keith more, and then he hugs with Austin. Colten stomps Keith again as Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Keith runs at Colten in the corner, but Colten moves and Keith hits buckles. Colten runs in at Keith, but gets caught with one hand! Keith SLAMS Colten down, then runs to run Colten over! And again! Keith SWATS a clothesline and ROCKS Colten with a forearm. Fans chant, “Keith Lee! WOOP WOOP!” Keith has Colten in a corner, to TOSS him corner to corner! Colten tumbles and Austin says Keith has done enough. Keith runs in, Austin saves Colten from the splash but takes the hit himself! Colten runs in to SPLASH Keith! Colten reels Keith in, “SUCK IT!” Colten runs, but the Famouser slides off Keith’s back!

Keith pops Colten up, Colten fights with fists, and he gets free! Colten gets the underhook, but Keith’s too big for that! Keith pops Colten up to a fireman’s carry, BIG BANG CATASTROPHE!! Cover, Keith wins!

Winner: Keith Lee, by pinfall

Keith just crushed Colten, will he more than ready to absolutely annihilate Team Taz?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews The Hardy Boyz.

Tony notes that Jeff is set to take on Bobby Fish in an Owen Hart Memorial qualifier. Jeff says first and foremost, he and Matt love and miss Owen Hart, they thank him for the memories. It is an honor to get into this tournament. Jeff steps into “the solo dimension” for the first time in AEW! When he beats Fish, imagine the possibilities. Dream matches like Jeff VS Darby! Matt says it could be Jeff VS Samoa Joe! And Joe’s defending his ROH World TV title up next! And there’s also Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly, Fish’s friends. Matt tells Fish that there is no way in hell Fish qualifies! That’d mean him beating Jeff and that ain’t happening! Fish is eating a Swanton Bomb!

The Undisputed Elite speak.

Nick Jackson mocks the Jeff Hardy dance and Matt asks if the camera is live. Brandon says yes, but Nick says it’s NOT Brandon, it’s LANDON! They’re all on the same page now and Adam Cole loves it. They can also all agree that the moron, Jeff Hardy, is ridiculous. He makes no sense. He is NOT beating Bobby Fish. Fish wins so that THREE members of the UE will be in the Owen Hart Cup. Then Cole guaran-damn-tees one of them winning the whole thing. Fish says that’s right, because Jeff “Hardly,” your days are numbered. And that… is elite. Good one. Now cut the camera, Brandon, ya idiot.

Will the Undisputed Elite have the mathematical advantage going into the tournament? Or will Brother Nero make sure the Infamous One is rendered OBSOLETE?

 

Danhausen heads to the ring.

He grumbles and mumbles but then introduces himself. “Yes, hello, it is I, Danhausen. Very nice, very evil, so on and so forth.” And he is here to decimate, eviscerate and annihilate the one they call HOOK. Hook has been menacing about for far too long with no repercussions. So Danhausen is here to take him out. Without further ado, SEND HOOK! And Hook is sent! Hook goes to the ring, fists taped and hair all over the place. He gets right in Danhausen’s face, and Danhausen regrets this immediately. Maybe they can do this another time? No, we’re doing this now. HOOK SPEAKS again!

But wait, here comes Mark Sterling. He wants everyone to hold on. Do people actually want to see these two fight? “YES!” Really? “YES!” Well he doesn’t. And then TONY NESE attacks from outta nowhere! He DECKS Hook and fires off on Danhausen! Nese throws off his tracksuit jacket, Sterling holds Hook but Hook THROWS Sterling! Nese rushes in, into REDRUM! Nese rakes eyes to get free, but runs into the EL CAMINO! Nese and Sterling bail out, and Danhausen CURSES them! Sterling and Nese don’t care, they rush the apron. But then Hook stands up behind Danhausen, and they think better of it.

Danhausen says he has powers, and he believes those powers are scaring Nese off. Fans chant “HOOKHAUSEN!” and Danhausen pats Hook on the shoulder. Danhausen offers a handshake? Hook grabs Danhausen by his collar, but then pushes him away. Hook doesn’t want friends, he wants to fight. Will he get that out of the Premier Athlete soon enough?

 

Backstage interview with the Gunn Club.

Lexi Nair is with Austin & Colten after that loss to Keith Lee. But Austin says that’s no loss. That was Colten’s first singles match in AEW and he went toe-to-toe with Keith Lee. If anything, it proves the Gunn Club can do anything. Singles, doubles, trios, quadruples! And they can rap. The Acclaimed walk in and Caster says no, they can’t. But Colten, great effort. Good positivity, and when these four team up, they never lose. Everyone loves The Acclaimed and Ass- Oh, sorry. Gunn Club. Wanna scissor with ’em? Colten says he and Austin gotta talk to dad. Fine, talk to daddy. They’ll be back. Lexi, you wanna- No.

 

Mercedes Martinez speaks.

“May 4th, Baltimore, Maryland, the home of Ring of Honor. Everyone thinks that I’m just a fluke. That an ‘interim’ women’s champion doesn’t mean anything. And Deonna. Oh, Deonna. There is no such thing as a fluke champion. I am a true champion. And come May, the OG Badass is looking to become the undisputed and only true Ring of Honor Women’s World Champion.” Will Mercedes be the one left standing after a fight with the Virtuosa?

 

Next week’s Rampage is at an early start time!

And as such, it’s got a fiery tag match between Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter VS Toni Storm & Ruby Soho! With the Owen Hart Women’s Tournament on the horizon, who gets crucial momentum going into the first round?

 

Mark Henry speaks to tonight’s main eventers.

He starts with Joe. ROH has familiar roots here in Philadelphia. Does Joe have a message for Trent? Oh, he does. And it’s simple. They are in Philly, the birthplace of ROH, where titles like the ROH World TV Championship were fought and bled for. Tonight, Trent steps into that world against Joe, and Joe guarantees that while Trent has convinced himself he’ll make it out alive, Joe will make Trent pass out before he ever walks out. Yikes. Joe is big and scary and Trent looks like the underdog. Everyone might think Joe is gonna kill Trent, but newsflash: he won’t. Chuck Taylor says new champion!

Well there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will the Samoan Submission Machine squeeze the life out of #JustTrent? Or will Trent finally taste some Ring of Honor gold?

ROH World Television Championship: Samoa Joe VS Trent Berretta w/ Best Friends!

Joining commentary for this one is the voice of ROH, Ian Riccaboni! He is honored to be part of this here in ROH’s birthplace, and a city where Joe’s had a lot of success. Then Bobby Cruz gives us the introductions as everyone makes their entrances. The belt is raised, the Code of Honor is upheld, and in the City of Brotherly Love, we might just see someone pass out!

The two circle, tie up, and Joe wrenches to a wristlock. Trent rolls, wrenches back, then headlocks. Joe powers out then runs Trent over hard! Fans fire up and Trent sits up in a daze. Trent gets to a corner, Joe JABS and JABS and JABS! The ref counts, Joe elbows Trent down then lets off. Joe drags Trent up to CHOP him in the corner, then DECK him with a forearm. Joe whips corner to corner, runs in and back body blocks, to PELE! Trent falls out of the ring and fans rally as Joe builds speed! Joe goes out but Trent dodges, to SLIDING KNEE from the apron! Joe staggers back up, Trent ASAI MOONSAULTS!

Trent overshoots but still manages to take Joe down! The ring count is climbing and Trent gets up to get Joe in at 4 of 10. Joe bails right back out but Trent pursues. Trent CHOPS Joe, follows him around the way, and then CHOPS him again! Joe snarls but Trent reels him in, TORNADO- NO! Joe powers out and BOOTS Trent down! Fans fire up as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Joe drags Trent up, puts him in the ring, and then follows him. Joe circles around Trent, brings him up, and CHOPS him off his feet. Trent sits up in a daze but Joe CLUBS him then CHOPS him on the back! Joe PENALTY KICKS Trent down, then drops an elbow! Cover, TWO! Chuck and Orange Cassidy coach Trent, he hits Joe back but Joe CHOPS him down. Joe clamps on a neck wrench and Trent endures the twist. Joe leans on the hold but Trent still endures. Trent fights up, throws elbows, and gets free, only to run into Joe’s back elbow! Joe watches Trent flounder, then mocks Cassidy by putting his hands in his “pockets.”

Joe drags Trent up, HEADBUTTS him, then kicks him. Joe drags Trent up by an ear, CHOPS him off his feet again, then paces around. Fans rally up and Joe hears them. Joe brings Trent up to CHOP him down again! Joe then clamps onto an arm and a chinbar to grind Trent down. Trent endures again, fights up and throws more body shots, but Joe throws Trent down! Joe stomps Trent, CHOPS him, then eggs him on. Rampage returns to single picture and fans rally as Joe reels Trent in. Trent flops down but Joe gets him back up to POWER- NO! Trent slips out and DROPKICKS Joe out of the ring!

Trent WRECKS Joe with a dropkick! Joe staggers, Trent climbs a corner to SUPER CROSSBODY! Direct hit and both men crash down! The ring count is climbing, Chuck rallies the fans and Trent winces as he gets up. Trent gets in at 5 of 10, Joe follows at 6. Trent CHOPS Joe, throws a forearm, then CHOPS again. Another forearm, another CHOP, but Joe swings. Trent ducks to get a SAIDO! Cassidy flexes for Trent and Trent runs in to CLOBBER Joe to the corner! Trent then hits the TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO! Joe is still in this but Trent snarls. Trent brings Joe up but Joe holds ropes to deny the Alabama lift!

Joe POWERBOMBS Trent down! High stack, TWO, but into the STF! Trent is caught but he reaches out. Joe shifts to just a CROSSFACE! Trent still endures, reaches out with a leg and gets the ROPEBREAK! Joe lets go at 4 and fans fire up. Joe SLAPS Trent! Trent gets up but Joe pie faces him. Joe eggs Trent on, pie faces more, but Trent SLAPS back! Joe LARIATS Trent down! Joe then puts Trent in the corner and up top! Joe tucks Trent in, MUSCLE- NO! SUNSET FLIP! High stack, TWO!! Trent runs, BUSAIKU KNEE! Joe staggers to a corner, Trent runs in, but into the URENAGE! Joe then gets the COQUINA CLUTCH!! Trent is OUT, Joe wins!!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by submission (still ROH World Television Championship)

Joe is still the 30th man to hold this belt, but he and Trent still show respect with the Code of Honor. Schiavone appears to interview Joe, and says that was quite the match. Joe thanks Schiavone for that, and is glad to be here celebrating in Philadelphia. But wait, here come Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt and Satnam Singh! Singh throws off that suit jacket and he leads the way down the ramp. But then Best Friends stand in his way? Cassidy steps up to Singh, and puts his hands in his pockets! He unleashes the shin kicks, only for Lethal to CLOBBER him! Sonjay brawls with Trent and Singh sends Chuck into steel steps!

Lethal goes for Joe and they brawl in the ring! They go all around with those fast hands but Joe gets the edge! Referees, security and producers try to stop this, Joe and Lethal still want after each other! They get loose and the brawl is on again! When and where will it end between former mentor and student?


My Thoughts:

Another great episode for AEW here. Great opener with Swerve VS Darby, and pretty good story overlapping. Starks of course costs Swerve to keep things going between them. Keith and Colten had a great match, and Austin after had a point that for his first singles match, Colten did great. Acclaimed wanting to team up with them in an 8 Man situation is interesting. Didn’t feel like either side is turning, just tension between Heel factions. Good promos from the Hardys and the Undisputed Elite to plug Jeff VS Fish, and that match is going to be great. I feel like maybe Jeff will win, because it’d be too easy if all the former Undisputed Era boys get in.

Good promo from Spears, even though it was obvious MJF called Big Cass/W. Morrissey. Good bit of Jericho making himself Sports Entertainer of the Week, and great appearance from Santana & Ortiz to beat Jericho up. Good promo from Mercedes to hype up the ROH Women’s World Championship match. Good segment out of Danhausen, Hook, Nese and Sterling. I didn’t think the face-to-face would be interrupted but it was a good Heel move from Nese. I could see Danhausen being in Hook’s corner when he faces Nese just to keep us waiting on when Danhausen finally wrestles in AEW.

And of course, great stuff out of the ROH World Television Championship. Great to have Ian Riccaboni on commentary to further represent ROH, and of course just an awesome match out of Joe VS Trent. Joe retains because naturally we were getting Lethal and company attacking. I kinda want a Six Man Tag of Best Friends VS Lethal, Sonjay & Singh. It’ll be an easy way to give Singh his in-ring debut, especially with Cassidy being mostly comedy. Lethal’s team can win, then Lethal and Joe can have another brawl to set up a TV championship match. They could even have an ROH title or two featured at Double or Nothing, as Lethal VS Joe is a big time match.

My Score: 8.7/10

AEW Elevation Coverage

It’s a Superbad return!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/ Mark Sterling VS Travis Titan & Arik Cannon; Nese & Woods win.

  • Six Woman Tag: Hikaru Shida & ThunderStorm VS Emi Sakura, Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero; Shida & ThunderStorm win.

QUICK NOTES

Great to see Penelope Ford is back in action. I wonder if Kip Sabian will make his in-ring return soon. Unless he wants to keep stalking Pac a little longer as the box man… Private Party is going to get a win as the warm-up for their AEW World Tag Team Championship match this Wednesday, and pretty much the entirety of The Dark Order is in action in that 8 Man Tag. Konosuke VS Bononi is going to be really good. Bononi is certainly the biggest opponent physically speaking for Konosuke to take on, so we’ll get to see how Konosuke handles that situation.

Bryan Danielson is here!

The American Dragon is back and Minneapolis is fired up to see him! Bryan goes to the ring and Tony Schiavone is there waiting for him to say we can all tell Bryan is here with purpose. So first, there is speculation that after the loss to Daniel Garcia, Bryan is not 100%. Second, Garcia has said he is the “Dragonslayer,” and he will not only defeat Bryan but end his career. Bryan takes the mic to say, “To be honest, I’ve been wrestling almost 23 years, I don’t know if I will ever be 100%. But I don’t need to be 100%, I need to live 100%! And there is nothing that makes me feel more alive than being in this ring!”

Fans cheer that and Bryan continues to say, “I will never willfully stop wrestling. Daniel Garcia said if I get in the ring with him, he’ll slay the dragon, end my career. Do you know what? Someone is gonna have to damn end my career because I am not going to end this ring on my own. But my career will not end this Wednesday!” But then Garcia is on stage and telling Bryan to “hold up, hold up, hold up. Bryan, it’s no secret that Bryan Danielson is my hero! You’re my hero, Bryan! But it sounds like to me that my hero is prepared to lose. It sounds like to me that my hero is coming up with excuses.” Fans boo that as Garcia gets in the ring.

Garcia says that he isn’t sure how many times he can put up with this! Bryan retires, then comes back, then retires again, then comes back again. Bryan can’t keep putting Garcia through this, it hurts Garcia. Garcia says when Bryan hurts Garcia, Garcia wants to hurt Bryan back. And when you step in the ring with Garcia again, Garcia will hurt him so bad, that he ends Bryan’s career for good! And then he won’t just be the Dragonslayer, he’ll be the Greatest Technical Sports Entertainer on the Planet.

Fans boo and Bryan responds with, “I’m okay with people saying they’re gonna end my career. Ever since I came to AEW, I’ve been talking about violence. I love violence, and violence begets violence. But do you know what really pisses me off? It’s that sports entertainment BS!” Fans cheer for that! Bryan knows what Chris Jericho’s been shoving down Garcia’s throat, and it IS that sports entertainment crap! Do you all know that this kid, Daniel Garcia, was one of the first names Bryan mentioned when talking about starting the Blackpool Combat Club? And why? Because Bryan saw Garcia at 21 years old go 60 MINUTES in front of 250 people, showing them the best wrestling Bryan’s seen in a young talent in YEARS!

So let Bryan ask Garcia, and he wants Garcia to think about it all the way to Wednesday, when Bryan’s stomping Garcia’s face in! “Do you wanna be the Best Technical Sports Entertainer on the Planet? Or, or… Look at me when I talk to you!” Bryan even grabs Garcia’s face to keep him looking forward! “If I was your hero, do you want to be the Best Technical Wrestler in the world? And I’ll leave that up to you.” Bryan drops the mic and leaves Garcia to mull that over. What path will Garcia choose while his career is still young?

 

AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championships: Sammy Guevara & Tay Melo VS Dante Martin & Skye Blue!

Another young protégé of Chris Jericho, and his blushing new bride, are back in action! And for the first time in AEW, they defend the belts that signify their bond! But will the Spanish God and his Brazilian Goddess celebrate a title win on top of their marriage? Or will Angel Dorado & Cielo Azul prove that for once, love doesn’t conquer all?

The introductions are made, the matching red ‘n’ blue belts are raised, and we see if the hometown hero of Minneapolis and the girl next door can win the big one!

The teams sort out, and Skye insists that it’s ladies first. Tay and Sammy kiss for luck, but Dante tells Sammy to leave that stuff backstage. Sammy shoves Dante down! So Skye fires off on Tay! And Dante TACKLES Sammy! The fans fire up as the scraps continue, and the ladies spill out of the ring! Dante TACKLES Sammy again, so it seems the gentlemen are starting instead! Tay RAMS Skye into the railing, Sammy shoves Dante again but Dante trips Sammy up! Dante rains down more forearms while fans fire up for the 612! Sammy gets up and KNEES Dante, then soaks up the heat. Sammy CHOPS Dante against ropes, then whips him to ropes.

Dante reverses, knees and CHOPS Sammy in return, then ROCKS and CHOPS him again. Dante whips Sammy to ropes, Tay catches Sammy to stop him then tags in. Skye is to come in automatically, but she tags to climb up and CROSSBODY! Skye then gets around but Tay throws her off with the judo hip toss. Skye shoves Tay so Tay SLAPS Skye! Skye smirks and SLAPS back! And then fires off fast hands! Fans fire up but Tay trips Skye! Tay steps through, rolls and uses the leg lock to THROW Skye! Tay steps over into a modified STF, and she chinbars Skye into an almost Bow ‘n’ Arrow style stretch! Skye endures, scoots but Tay makes it a cover, ONE!

Skye has a cover, ONE! Skye ROCKS Tay, whips her to ropes, and fans rally. Tay holds ropes but Skye SHINING WIZARDS! And SHINING WIZARDS again! Tay shoves Skye, Skye dodges and mule kicks a leg!

The Lucha Brothers speak.

Rey Fenix says, “After a long road, the Lucha Brothers are coming back for gold.” Penta, with Alex Abrahantes translating, tells Andrade and the world, “This hasn’t finished. But next week, the All-Atlantic Champion returns, and Death Triangle will be reunited and will fight for the Trios Championships.” The Bastard, Pac, is returning from his European tour, will he, Penta & Fenix be ready for The United Empire’s Aussie Open and Will Ospreay in the opening round?

 

Parker Boudreaux w/ The Trustbusters VS Sonny Kiss!

Ari Daivari recruited this brutal blue chipper to the group, knowing this would be a very wise investment. Will Parker pay off right away? Or will the Concrete Rose prove not to judge a book by its cover?

La Faccion Ingobernable meets with the former Andrade Family Office.

Andrade formally introduces Rush to Butcher, Blade and Private Party. Rush doesn’t like Private Party. But Andrade says it’s fine! The LFI will win those Trios Championships, unlike Private Party against Keith Lee. Jose even adds that was embarrassing. Isiah Kassidy tells Jose to shut up, and he tells El Idolo that people like him have been sleeping on Private Party for a very long time. But that’s fine, because it all changes. Private Party will wake Andrade up. Well good, maybe Private Party can get this group those world tag titles. Upper management leaves, will Kassidy & Quen redeem themselves in the eyes of the ungovernables?

 

Beardhausen VS Gunn Club!

Erick Redbeard returns to AEW alongside the Very Nice, Very Evil Danhausen to teach these Ass Boys something! Not quite sure what, but will Danhausen & Erick put a curse on the Gunn Club? Or can Austin & Colten redeem themselves after losing in the Dumpster Match?

The teams sort out and Erick starts against Colten. Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS! ASS~ BOYS!” Colten shrugs that off to tie up with Erick, and Erick shoves Colten down! Fans fire up but Austin tags in.

Fans boo and Austin turns things around into a FAMOUSER! Cover, Gunn Club wins!!

Winners: Gunn Club, by pinfall

Big assist from Daddy Ass, and yet Billy gets the mic to say, “Oh my God, are you kidding me? Really, that’s what you’re giving us? No wonder they call you Ass Boys, and no wonder I miss The Acclaimed.” Ouch… Billy means that the guys need to toughen up a bit. A lot of bit! They sure ain’t doing what he’s taught them, that’s a fact! But that’s okay, on Dynamite, they’ve got another match to prove themselves with. But who is it? Billy doesn’t say, will Austin & Colten just have to tough it out? Wait, Stokely Hathaway is in the crowd, offering his business card again. Austin & Colten don’t accept, and they follow after Billy.

 

Backstage interview with Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW World Tag Team Champions, Swerve in Our Glory. Earlier, Andrade made it clear that he wants Private Party to go after the titles. Now, Keith Lee has history with them, but what makes the tag title match different? Keith chuckles and says, “Listen. I got here, Mr. Kassidy was a challenger, and I dismantled him. His friend, Quen, jumps in, I dismantle him. I don’t know if this makes sense, but if you didn’t have a chance against me, what makes you think you have a chance against us? Please, do the math.”

Swerve admits math wasn’t his best subject, when it came to counting money! But um, he added up Private Party’s losses, subtracted their wins, and carried the one, and the still don’t add up to a top five ranking team! So they will allow Private Party to be grace the champs with their presence, since no ranked team wants to, and they can #SwerveInOurGlory. Whose house? “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Will Quen & Kassidy take advantage of this gracious opportunity? Or will they be of further disappointment to El Idolo.

 

HOOK is here!

Minneapolis fires up for the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil of a NEW FTW Champion! Hook goes to the ring, Schiavone is there, and Schiavone says there is no question that one of the most incredible debuts in AEW culminated with Hook becoming FTW Champion. As we understand it, this title is always in open challenge. Is that right, Hook? “Yup.” Okay. We’ve followed Hook’s career, short as it is still, and it has been tremendous. But wait! Out walks Zack Clayton! He introduces himself as “The Reality,” and he knows some recognize him from his reality TV superstardom in the great state of New Jersey!

Clayton tells Hook that he will take that FTW Championship from him, “you little wannabe tough guy New Yorker!” And Clayton will bring it to God’s Country, New Jersey, where it belongs! Hook nods and wave Clayton to bring it, but Clayton says no, he just got new boots made, they’re not ready it. And plus, being a Jersey guy, he does things on his terms. So how about we do this on next week’s Rampage? Hook holds up the belt to say sure thing! The match is made, will The Reality be the one getting a reality check against the Son of Taz?

 

Mark Henry speaks with tonight’s main eventers!

The World’s Strongest Man says Ari Daivari offered Orange Cassidy a spot in the Trustbusters, but what is it that Daivari sees in him? “Mark, Orange Cassidy is easily, hands down, one of the most talented professional wresters on the AEW roster. And now that my trust has officially kicked in, I am investing my hard earned money into the best talent around.” Look what he’s already down for Slim J and Parker Boudreaux! And Orange doesn’t wanna join that? He still wants to hang out with “those stupid goofs?” Hey, you don’t wanna join in, fine! They’ll do the next best thing, and Daivari will beat Orange’s ass in this old dump of a hometown, Minneapolis!

Wow. Well, uh, looks like there’s been enough talk. Orange, no, that’s Mark’s line. Oh. Well, it is true, though. It’s time for the main event! Will Cassidy give Quake by the Lake a Freshly Squeezed main event? Or will Daivari Dinero make that money?

Orange Cassidy w/ Best Friends VS Ari Daivari w/ The Trustbusters!

The bell rings and fans rally for “Freshly Squeezed!” as he gives Best Friends his jacket and tie-dye shirt. Cassidy lifts up his hands but Daivari has him wait before putting them in his pockets. Daivari gets a mic and says, “I’m gonna give you one last chance to join the Trustbusters. All you have to do is lay down and let me pin you, then the four of us can get out of this sh*tty town.” Fans boo and Cassidy… nods?! Cassidy lies down and Daivari says he knew Cassidy was smarter than that. Cassidy is ready, Daivari takes a moment to decide what angle he’s coming in from, but then Cassidy rolls away!

Fans laugh and Cassidy tells Daivari to hurry up. Daivari goes to cover again but Cassidy rolls away again! Daivari is annoyed, he storms up but Cassidy rolls out of the ring. And then puts his hands up, to… Nope, Cassidy has to get in the ring as Daivari rushes out! Cassidy then rolls all the way to the far side and gets a GROUP HUG from Best Friends!

Daivari catches Cassidy to a SLEEPER, but Cassidy flails and reaches out! Cassidy is fading, and is turning red, but he gets the ROPEBREAK! Daivari SLAPS the arms off the ropes and puts the SLEEPER on again! Fans rally as Cassidy endures again, but the ref checks. The arm drops once! And then it drops twice!

But Cassidy gets his second wind, puts both hands up, and then puts them in his pockets! Cassidy RAMS Daivari into buckles, gets free and dodges a lariat, but DOUBLE LARIATS collide on the return!

Parker SPLASHES Chuck in one corner, then SPLASHES Trent in the other, and roars! Fans boo but Orange is back up! And Sonny Kiss rushes out there! Kiss did just lose to Parker, so- Kiss LOW BLOWS Cassidy!?!? And then Parker gives Orange the SLAM!! Did Kiss just sell out to the Trustbusters!? Did that happen between now and that match earlier? Or was it all part of the plan?


My Thoughts:

A great episode to close out the first Quake by the Lake event, with some surprising developments here. While Parker Boudreaux didn’t really change his moveset up from when he was Harland in NXT, he of course wins here tonight in a squash. Then we got an awesome main event out of Cassidy VS Daivari, even with Best Friends and the Trustbusters ringside. I was a touch surprised Cassidy won, but then that brawl at the end with Kiss swerving and turning Heel was a great way for Trustbusters to stand tall here. The go-home math is now a wash, but I would think Best Friends win to advance in the trios tournament.

Speaking of that tournament, great promo from the LFI and extended faction, as well as from Keith & Swerve. A title match between Keith & Swerve VS Private Party is going to be awesome, but I would think the champions retain the titles. Private Party going after LFI would be great to turn Private Party Face. Good promo from Lucha Bros to hype up their Trios Championship tournament match, and I would think Death Triangle beats The United Empire, pinning one of Aussie Open. And their promo implies that no matter who the third man is for the Young Bucks, LFI advances. AKA it’ll be Brandon Cutler because the Bucks have no one else, and he takes the pin.

Really fun match from Gunn Club and Beardhausen, but rather surprising that Gunn Club won. Billy is really ripping into his own sons, I have a feeling he just pushes them into joining Stokely’s stable. Stokely’s got Ethan Page, he’s got Lee Moriarty, he needs a tag team before can start taking over AEW properly, and it could be Gunn Club. Great promo segment from Hook and Zack Clayton, and this is a great opportunity for Clayton to move up in the world. The Mixed Tag Championship match was a great opening match, and while Dante & Skye looked great, I figured SamTay would win to retain.

And we got a great promo from Bryan and Garcia to open the whole show, and I am so happy Bryan is taking this story the way I was hoping. Daniel Garcia is definitely more a BCC guy than a JAS guy, so I hope the best two outta three falls match starts getting Garcia to consider his position in the feud. There’s a lot that Garcia can bring into the BCC, from both a moment of dysfunction since he battled Yuta for the ROH Pure Championship and was insufferable to the other BCC members, to more fire in the faction because they can get even more titles now. I can’t wait to see where this goes next.

My Score: 8.7/10
