Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament Opening Round: Adam Cole VS Dax Harwood!

The Undisputed Elite looks to start on their promise that they will win this historic tournament! But will Adam Cole make sure the Owen Hart Cup is all about the Boom? Or will Dax the Ax represent for FTR, his family and for the Harts?

The bell rings and fans are fired up for Dax. Dax and Cole circle, tie up, and go around. Cole puts Dax in a corner, the ref counts and Cole lets off. Fans say, “ADAM COLE BAYBAY!” along with Cole, but Dax lets it go. Cole pie faces Dax, but still Dax lets it go. They tie up, Cole wrenches to a wristlock but Dax rolls, wrenches and slips around to headlock for a takeover! Fans cheer, Dax grinds but Cole makes it a cover, ONE! Dax holds on but Cole fights his way up and puts Dax in a corner. The ref counts, Cole lets off to say, “ADAM COLE BAY-” CHOP! Dax ROCKS Cole, CHOPS him again, then EuroUppers!

Dax falls out of the ring and a count begins. Cole goes out after Dax and brings him up to RAM into steel steps!

Dax writhes and Cole soaks up the cheers and jeers. Cole refreshes the count, he drags Dax back up, and RAMS him back into steel steps! Cole smirks as he refreshes the count again. Dax clutches ribs, Cole goes back out after him and stomps those ribs! Dax sputters as he scrambles away but Cole pursues. Cole ROCKS Dax, follows him further along, then ROCKS him again. Dax CHOPS, Cole KNEES low! Dax grits his teeth, Cole refreshes the count, and Cole POSTS Dax again! Fans boo as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cole takes a moment to catch his own breath before he puts Dax in the ring. Cole stalks Dax, brings him around and JAMS a knee into Dax’s back. Cole has the arms for a motorcycle stretch but Dax endures. Fans rally as Dax fights up and Dax mule kicks, forearms, and runs, into a cobra twist! Cole digs his elbows into those bad ribs but Dax endures. Dax fights, fans rally, and Dax pries free to switch the twist onto Cole! Cole hip tosses out fast but backs off to check his bad arm. Cole drives in elbows into Dax’s shoulder and then clamps on a chinlock. Dax endures, moves around but Cole grinds him into the mat.

Dax fights up as fans rally again. Dax gets to his feet to throw body shots! Dax headlocks, Cole powers out then CLOBBERS Dax with an elbow! Cole paces while Dax writhes, and Cole brings Dax up to bump off buckles. Cole throws forearms, talks some trash, throws more forearms, and Dax staggers. Dynamite returns to single picture as Cole hits Dax low. Cole wrenches, whips Dax corner to corner hard, and Dax bounces off buckles to hit the mat! Cole smirks as he looms over Dax. Fans rally and duel as Cole drags Dax up. Cole pushes Dax around, pie faces him, talks some trash, but Dax snarls as he gets up.

Dax throws a haymaker, Cole ROCKS Dax with a forearm! Dax swings, misses, Cole ROCKS him again! Cole ROCKS Dax against ropes, wrenches and whips but Dax reverses to reel Cole in for a GERMAN SUPELX! And Dax holds on to GERMAN SUPLEX again! Dax still has the waistlock but Cole switches to GERMAN SUPLEX back! Cole holds on, but Dax switches, GERMAN SUPLEX! Dax finishes his hat trick and fans fire up! A standing count begins as both men are down. Dax drags himself to the apron and up the ropes as fans chant for “FTR! FTR!” Cole ROCKS Dax first, climbs up after him, but Dax hits back!

The two brawl, Dax sends Cole down! Dax adjusts to DIVING- NO, Cole moves, but Dax lands on his feet! Pop-up, REBOUND POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Cole survives but Dax just grits his teeth and gets back up. Dax throws off his elbow pad but Cole BOOTS him first! Cole reels Dax in, GHOSTBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Dax survives and Cole is annoyed. Cole goes to a corner, tunes up the band, a shoutout to his hero, HBK. Dax slowly gets up, Cole runs in, but Dax gets under the superkick! O’Conner Roll, TWO! Dax goes up the corner to CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Dax hurries to whip but Cole reverses!

Dax goes up, leaps again, SUPERKICK! Cole covers, TWO!! Into a ghost pin, TWO!! Cole and Dax both survive and fans are thunderous! Another standing count starts as fans chant for “A E DUB!

Cole scrambles to get ropes, then he BOOTS Dax away! Cole resets on the corner, PANAMA SUN- NO, Dax back drops it, rolls Cole and gets him up, PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!!! Cole survives and no one can believe it! Another standing count starts as fans are electric!

Dax gets up and he grimaces. Fans rally up as Dax gets the legs and steps through! SHARPSHOOTER!! Cole endures, Dax sits deep, but the bad rib is a problem. Cole fights, tries to turn, and Dax can’t hold it! Dax falls off the hold and flops to the apron. Dax drags himself up, Cole runs in and BLASTS Dax to the railing! Dax is down and a ring count begins. Fans rally for Dax but the count is already 5 of 10. Dax reaches, crawls, gets back to ringside at 7, but he flops off the apron! The count is 9, Dax springs to life and in at 9.9!! Cole is furious so he gets Dax’s legs! Cole wants to, and does STEAL THE SHARPSHOOTER!

Dax endures, he reaches out, but Cole drags him away! Cole sits deep on the hold but Dax keeps fighting! Dax can’t, the ribs hurt! Dax taps, Cole wins!!

Winner: Adam Cole, by submission (advances to the semifinals)

Cole is going on to the next round, one step closer to keeping his promise. But who will he be meeting in the semifinals? We’ll find out in the main event!


Rampage will be early again this week!

Another round of NHL playoffs means this Friday’s Rampage will be at 5:30 Eastern, 2:30 Pacific! Make sure to schedule accordingly so you don’t miss a thing!


AEW hears from Jeff Hardy and Darby Allin.

Speaking of that main event, the Charismatic Enigma tells Darby that tonight is the night their worlds collide and their chemistry embraces one another. The Relentless One says no one wants to see these two exchange headlocks, that’s not what this match will be about. This will about getting crazy, getting psycho and do everything they live for. Jeff said it best, they’re more stuntmen than wrestlers. They’ve studied each other closely, this energy is going to be different. Darby knows fans want to see someone going to the hospital after tonight. Hell, Darby wants to do that. This is what they live for.

Darby even asked Tony Khan to just waive the rules and let these two go nuts. The people will see what this dream match is really all about. Will Tony give Darby want he wants tonight? Will it be a No Holds Barred Owen Hart Cup match?


Hangman Page is here!

The AEW World Champion is here to join commentary, because he wants to watch what happens with his own eyes.

CM Punk VS John Silver!

Before the Best in the World goes 1v1 with the Cowboy for #PrettyPlatinum at Double or Nothing, the Meat Man gets himself some! Will Johnny Hungy devour CM Punk? Or will it be #ClobberingTime on Long Island?

Punk wears a New York Islanders hockey jersey for Tavares, number 91, to get Long Island on his side. A nice try, as Long Island’s own Silver makes his entrance with the Dark Order seeing him out. Silver says hey to Brian “Q” Quinn of the Impractical Jokers before he gets in the ring. The bell rings, the two circle and fans rally up. They tie up, go around, and Punk puts Silver in the corner. The ref counts, fans duel, and Punk lets off at 4 to then go outside and soak it all in. Punk gets back in, circles and ties up with Silver again, and Punk headlocks. Punk grinds Silver down but Silver fights up to wrench out and headlock.

Punk powers out, Silver runs Punk over and fans cheer as he flexes. Silver runs, Punk drops, hurdles and goes to hip toss but Silver makes that a backslide! TWO, and Punk slides out. Silver waits as Punk cools off. Silver goes out, Punk gets back in, and Punk drops an elbow as Silver slides in. Punk ROCKS Silver, clinches in a corner, but Silver turns things around to fire off fast hands! Fans fire up as those forearms and stomps keep flying! The ref counts, Silver lets off at 4 and Silver brings Punk up for more. Silver goes up the corner, reels Punk in, TORNADO- NO! Punk tosses Silver, then CLOBBERS him!

Fans boo as Dynamite goes picture in picture. Punk goes back for Silver, brings him up, and scoops him for a BACKBREAKER! Punk stalks Silver to ropes, talks trash on Q, whips Silver and hits a body shot, into a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO! Punk stays cool while Silver gets to ropes. Silver CHOPS, ROCKS Punk, CHOPS him again, then ROCKS him again. Silver whips, Punk reverses and kitchen sink knees Silver down! Punk looks at Hangman, then goes back for Silver. Punk hits an atomic drop, then turns Silver for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Punk is annoyed but he clamps onto Silver with a chinlock.

Silver endures, fans rally, and Silver fights up to throw body shots. Punk knees low, whips Silver to a corner, and Dynamite returns to single picture as Punk goes corner to corner. Silver dodges and Punk hits only buckles! Punk gets stuck a moment but he flops out of the corner, and Silver ROCKS Punk with a forearm. Silver dodges, CHOPS, dodges and KICKS! Silver KICKS and KICKS and KICKS! Silver fire sup, runs, but Punk spins him around to a backslide! Silver rolls through to KICK, KICK and SUPERKICK! Then deadlift BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Punk survives but fans fire up for Silver!

Silver runs into the corner to ROCK Punk with a forearm! Silver then hops up, reels Punk in, TORNADO- NO, Punk denies it again! Silver dodges, goes up, jumps and TORNADO DDT hits! Cover, TWO! Punk survives another one but Silver says it’s time to go around! Fans fire up with Silver as he gets Punk in the torture rack. Punk fights free, ROUNDHOUSES, and Silver goes to a corner. Punk runs in, SHINING WIZARD! Then short arm LARIAT! Punk mocks the flex, and he drags Silver up to whip, CALF KICK! Punk goes out to the apron and he looks at Hangman. Fans rally and duel, Punk is taking his time just staring at the champ.

Punk aims at Silver, handsprings in, and steals BUCK SHOT?! Cover, Punk wins!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall

Hangman is done on commentary, not that he said much, and he storms right to the ring! Punk waits on him, and fans fire up as the two get in each other’s face! Punk asks if Hangman’s mad. Last week, it sounded like Hangman’s taking this all a little personal. Punk doesn’t know why Long Island doesn’t like him, but when it comes to them, Hangman and the title, it isn’t personal. It’s just business. Punk used to wake up and ask himself, “Are you a good guy?” This morning, Punk asked himself, “Are you the champ?” Punk’s answer was YES.

Last week, Hangman said he was going to destroy Punk? Well Punk just destroyed Hangman’s boy, that is a blueprint for what happens at Double or Nothing. And at the end of the night, Hangman will shake Punk’s hand, conscious or unconscious. Punk offers Hangman the chance now, but Hangman just flips him off! Fans love that #CowboySh*t, but will Hangman still have the AEW World Championship after taking Punk on 1v1?


Backstage interview with Jamie Hayter, Britt Baker & Rebel.

Tony Schiavone says in the opening round of the Women’s Owen Hart Cup, Britt Baker takes on the joker, whoever that will be, and Hayter takes on Toni Storm. Britt says this only makes sense given the conspiracy that exists in AEW against her. She can’t really prepare for her opponent, but she doesn’t care, she’ll still win. And so will that lovely lady, Hayter. See, here’s the thing about storms. When storms first come rolling in, they’re all violent and exciting. But then eventually, they pass. Tonight, the Storm is over and a Hayter is on the forecast. Schiavone asks if Britt realizes that if they both win, we get Britt VS Hayter in the semifinals.

Hayter says they shouldn’t worry about that right now. It’s fine, no worries. And if it does happen, at least it’ll be a fair fight, and the better woman will win. Britt gives a smirking look to Rebel, will Hayter end up hoping the joker takes out the Doctor?


Tony Nese w/ Mark Sterling VS Danhausen!

The Premier Athlete has had beef with both the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil, Hook, as well as the very nice, very evil “demon waif” making his AEW in-ring debut here tonight! Will Danhausen prove his powers here tonight? Or will he suffer his first loss in AEW right out the gate?

The bell rings and fans rally up behind Danhausen. Nese is annoyed but he circles with Danhausen. Nese then flexes on Danhausen, so Danhausen CURSES him! Sterling gets on the apron to yell at Danhausen, interrupting the casting, and Nese CLOBBERS Danhausen! Nese then runs side to side, PREMIER KNEE!! Cover, Nese wins!!

Winner: Tony Nese, by pinfall

This is all because of Sterling! Danhausen had no chance with Sterling there distracting him on Nese’s behalf! But Sterling gets on a mic to shout, “Are you shocked?! Oh, sorry! I’m not!” Sterling tells Nese that Danhausen got a televised entrance but Nese didn’t! What do we think about that? Nese runs to PREMIER KNEE again! Sterling says Tony Nese will just have to continue to embarrass all the internet meme wrestlers! He wants another one, and even sits Danhausen up. Nese brings down his kneepad, but here comes HOOK! Sterling is freaking out and Nese is squaring up as two of Long Island’s own are about to collide!

But then Nese and Sterling bail once Hook is in the ring. Danhausen flounders up while Hook stares down Nese. Fans want #Hookhausen but what does Hook say to the handshake? He accepts! Fans are thunderous, but then Hook just leaves on his own. Will this team-up of Cold-Hearted, Very Nice Devils be what humbles the Premier Athlete?


AEW returns and Wardlow is being escorted to the ring.

He’s still cuffed and has no music, but now his tron says “Boo Wardlow!” That tron must be MJF’s personal creation since it’s so cheap. But Wardlow has no choice but to get in the ring with security all over the place, as well as Shawn Spears armed with a chair. Mark Sterling has returned since MJF is another of his clients. And then a trailer for the new season of Dark Side of the Ring plays? Chris Jericho is narrating, “In the middle of the most barbaric match in the history of All Elite Wrestling between top star, MJF, and PG Punk…” Jericho realizes this is about MJF, and he sure ain’t narrating for that a-hole after all they’ve been through.

Wait, how much is the paycheck? Wow, okay, Jericho will do it. The amazing MJF was well on his way to a victory that felt like a dream, but it soon became a nightmare. Taz, “MJF’s consigliere,” says that his boy, MJF, the King of Long Island, had it won, but then Wardlow… Jake Roberts says Wardlow screwed it up. Taz can’t even speak, but Jake the Snake says Wardlow’s a bad man. He gave the Dynamite Diamond Ring to the wrong man in CM Punk. Then Wardlow attacks innocent security guards, costing MJF against Shawn Dean. Take it from Barry Horowitz, “legendary Jewish wrestler,” that Dean is a jobber!

Jericho continues to say that out of the kindness of MJF’s heart, he gave Wardlow TV matches. But that greedy piggy wanted more. The amazing MJF has therefore decided to sit down with Wardlow to talk over his contract. And in the most magical place in the world: Long Island, New York! Because he is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and he is better than you, and you know it. And of course, we return to present and the fans, being locals, are all chanting for MJF. MJF makes his entrance in an Islanders jersey of his own, with his name on it. MJF fist bumps fans for once, even copies CM Punk doing some crowd dives, then goes to the ring.

MJF gets the mic to cut his music so he can hear the cheers. Wardlow rolls his eyes and MJF conducts the fans. MJF tells Wardlow, “Now that’s a symphony, b*tch.” But let’s just be honest, Long Island. MJF loves you SOB’s, he really does! But unfortunately, we gotta talk to Wardlow. Let’s be honest, it’s a tale as old as time: a true underdog story, Biblical even, with David (MJF) and Goliath (Wardlow). The younger, smaller but way more jacked and humble and Salt of the Earth, Jewish prince from the holy land, and not Israel but the most magical place in the world, LI, NY! Versus the big dumb stupid oaf.

But we all know why we’re here. They’re to discuss the conditions Wardlow must clear to get his match with MJF at Double or Nothing, and then if Wardlow wins at DoN, since MJF is the “Mensch of the Centch,” then MJF lets Wardlow out of his contract. But before all that, since MJF is so humble, he wants to give Wardlow a chance to talk to his people. Fans boo but MJF has them hold on. They have an opportunity to show the world what Long Islanders are all about. So under no circumstances, wink wink wink, would he want each and every one of them to get up out of their seats and boo Wardlow out of the arena.

To reiterate those in the cheap seats. You’re all poor but you’re still beautiful. MJF winks almost every word as he says, “The last thing I would want each and every single one of you to do is create the loudest boo in the history of professional wrestling. We got that, Long Island?” Yes! So then, the floor is Wardlow’s. And the booing begins. Wardlow takes up his mic, but the mic doesn’t seem to be working. MJF says that’s really weird. He can’t hear Wardlow, can anyone? Nope! Should they let him try? No! Really? Then fine, he’s not gonna speak.

But let’s talk those conditions. And let’s be honest, because they’re being honest right now, right, Long Island? Wardlow is kind of the worst. And karma is coming his way for everything Wardlow did to MJF’s best bud back in the day, the American Roller Coaster, Cody Rhodes. Oh, what? He shouldn’t bring up 2024? That’s funny, neither does the guy in the back. Anyway, don’t worry. Back to now. Wardlow, if you want MJF at DoN, you’ve gotta get whipped. Yeah, MJF will take his belt and not just whip Wardlow once, twice or three times. Not four times, not five, not six, seven, eight, or nine. Shawn Spears, if you would.

Spears takes off his jacket and winds it up. How many times? TEN!! And if Wardlow gets past that, then he’ll have to wrestle Spears inside a solid steel cage. Wardlow laughs at that, but MJF doesn’t know why. Last time MJF checked, Wardlow’s 0-2 in a cage. And he isn’t done, either. This is not just any cage match, no no no. It will have a special guest referee, and his name is MAXWELL! JACOB! FRIEDMAN! And Wardlow, if you somehow get past that, MJF will give him the DoN match. But wait, they didn’t even get to what will happen there if Wardlow loses. Fans want to know, right? YES!

If Wardlow loses at Double or Nothing, he will never be allowed to sign a contract with AEW, forever! So what does the “War Pig” say? Is he too scared because this is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and he’s better than you, and you know it?! Wardlow gets the pen but he struggles to sign it because of the cuffs. MJF is frustrated already so he has them uncuff Wardlow. Sterling and Spears says that’s not a good idea. MJF says he knows what he’s doing. The cuffs are undone, MJF tells War Pig to sign, and Wardlow stands up to sign on the dotted line. Okay, put the cuffs back on and take him away.

Wardlow smirks as he lets the guard get close, and MJF calls Wardlow a coward. Then Wardlow SMACKS the guard off the table! And then TOSSES The table at the rest! Any that are still up, Wardlow DECKS, BOOTS and shoves away! Spears shields MJF as Wardlow finishes up with haymaker after haymaker! MJF tells Spears to go get Wardlow, but Wardlow DECKS Spears, too! And now MJF is all alone! Long Island freaks out, and MJF runs, only to get caught! Wardlow brings MJF back in, but Sterling gets on Wardlow’s back! MJF gets away but Wardlow throws Sterling down! Fans love it as Wardlow sets the table back up!

Wardlow rips off his shirt, snarls as Sterling gets up, and fans are okay with this happening to Sterling! POWERBOMB through the table!! MJF says Wardlow is not going to survive to make it to PPV, but will Wardlow prove MJF dead wrong?


AEW hears from Samoa Joe and his enemies.

Samoa Joe says, “One week, your ROH Television Champion will face the joker in his Owen Hart quarterfinal match-up. Since I’ve walked into AEW, all I’ve been faced with is jokers.” Sonjay Dutt says Joe is sleeping and wishing and dreaming and praying that maybe Jay Lethal is the joker. Ha, it’s not! Joe says he’s been dealing with “fools and clowns like Sonjay Dutt, like Jay Lethal, and their gargantuan protégé.” Dutt says Joe is probably wanting after Satnam Singh, the one in a billion! But it’s not him, either! But here’s a joke for Joe: an old adage that they’d say in India. Lethal knows it, too. “Your stomach is big, but your brain is small.”

Joe vows that he will win the Owen Hart Cup, and then he will come for Lethal and crew to settle things his way. Will Joe be able to trump whatever wild card is thrown his way? Or will the joker be the one laughing all the way to the next round?


FTW Championship: Ricky Starks VS Jungle Boy!

Before Team Taz’s #AbsolutePowerhouses take on Jurassic Express for the AEW World Tag Team Championships, we see how #StrokeDaddy and Jungle Jack Perry match-up 1v1! Will JB be a dual champion going into the tag title match? Or will Starks show JB exactly what FTW is all about?

Fans cheer the exchange but Starks is annoyed. JB blocks the sucker punch to ROCK Starks and knuckle lock one hand. JB goes for a corner but Starks reels him in to knee low! Starks SLAPS JB, then he brings him up in a knuckle lock. Starks goes up, rebounds and arm-drags! Starks kips up and strikes his pose! Fans fire up and Starks grins, but turns around into a CHOP from JB! JB knuckle locks, goes up the corner, and jumps around and around to rebound and arm-drag! Then dropkick!

JB kips up as Starks bails out, and fans fire up as JB copies the pose! The ring count starts as Dynamite goes picture in picture. Starks gets in but JB WRECKS him with a dropkick! JB goes out after Starks, CHOPS him, then follows him along the way. JB CLUBS Starks, fist bumps Q, then CLUBS Starks down. Starks hobbles away but JB follows after. JB CHOPS again, and shouts out more fans. JB keeps with Starks, CLUBS him against the apron, then refreshes the count. Starks goes to bump JB off the apron but JB blocks and body shots to SMACK Starks off the apron! JB then puts Starks in and hurries after.

Starks FLAPJACKS JB on ropes! JB writhes and clutches his ribs but Starks storms over to stomp him down! Starks kicks JB around, chokes him against the ropes, and the ref counts.

Starks gest to the apron but JB brings him up. Starks HOTSHOTS JB away! Starks hurries to grab the FTW belt! Is Starks going to run away and use Champion’s Advantage? But Swerve Strickland rushes down to stop him! Starks hurries into the ring, into JB’s victory roll! But the ref is busy with the belt, and with Swerve! Swerve says to get in the ring, JB’s already got more than three on Starks! Starks gets free at like 8, and then Starks CLOBBERS JB!

Starks reels JB in, ROSHAMBEAUX!! Cover, Starks wins!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall (still FTW Champion)

Swerve realizes he screwed up, but here come Christian Cage and Luchasaurus! They bump past Swerve to get in the ring and check on JB. Swerve tries to explain what he was doing, but they don’t care. Starks & Hobbs get in Swerve’s face now, but here comes KEITH LEE! The Limitless One backs up Swerve, will they make sure they’ve got next should Team Taz win the tag titles? And speaking of, JB is rather distraught over his loss. Captain Charisma walks up to JB to pat him on the shoulder and bring it in. Will the Jurassic Express be able to keep on track when they take on Starks & Hobbs?


The Jericho Appreciation Society heads to the ring.

The Influencer, the Wizard, the Demo God, Chris Jericho leads Daniel Garcia, Jake Hager, Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker out and Long Island sings Judas. There’s a podium in the ring and Parker goes up to it. “AEW Galaxy! Welcome to our victory speech!” Menard steps up now to say, “You wanna know what really turns me on? You wanna know what makes Daddy Magic’s nipples hard?!” Uh, no… Well it’s the fact that he gets to stand here as part of the greatest faction in the world, the Jericho Appreciation Society! Jericho then steps up to say, “There’s a lot of hometown heroes here tonight. I’m one of them, did you know that?”

Jericho says he was born “just down the road” in Manhasset, but then he moved away pretty damn quick cuz this place is a dump! Aw c’mon, you guys know it sucks. Oh, does some nerd in the crowd have a problem with that? Jericho’ll throw a fireball at you, because he’s a wizard! Jericho says the JAS did exactly what they said they would do when they “systematically eliminated Santana, Ortiz, and that piece of trash, Eddie Kingston. They are gone! We win, they lose.” Hager raises Parker’s hand in victory while Jericho tells Santana, Ortiz & Kingston to just stay at home. Especially Kingston. Because Jericho 2:16 says “I just burned your face!”

And besides, Kingston has to stay home and take care of his wife. He’s gotta make sure she feels better. If she doesn’t, have her give Jericho a call. Garcia says the story stays the same every time a pro-wrestler steps to a sports entertainer: every single time, the sports entertainer wins! Jericho takes the mic back but here comes JON MOXLEY! The Maniac is a pro-wrestler for sure as he comes in through the crowd! And on top of that, he’s a good friend of Kingston’s, and an enemy of Jericho’s! Moxley makes it to ringside, but Jericho gives him one chance to go on another extended sabbatical of three months. Get outta here now!

Because guess what? There’s only one Moxley, and five JAS! Uh, Moxley isn’t alone. Here comes BRYAN DANIELSON! And WHEELER YUTA! And hell, count William Regal, too! The full Blackpool Combat Club is here, and Jericho says that’s still 5v4! But fans are chanting for “EDDIE! EDDIE!” And from under the ring, it’s the MAD KING! Eddie is here, even with his face badly burned, and he brought Santana & Ortiz! Jericho and his society turn around and see them! Those three on one side, BCC on the other, 6v5 and fans chant at the JAS, “You F’d Up! You F’d up!” And just as it sinks in for Jericho, the brawl begins!

Bryan is after Menard, Ortiz has Parker, Santana and Moxley are after Hager, Yuta has Garcia, and of course Kingston’s after Jericho! Kingston CHOKES Jericho, even! The BCC, Santana & Ortiz throw the others out, but Hager goes to save Jericho! Regal goes after Jericho to reel him in and DECK him! The JAS goes running for it as the Kingston and company stand tall! Will the sports entertainers survive these violent and angry pro-wrestlers?


AEW takes a closer look at Rosa VS Deeb.

Good ol’ JR says, “If you want somebody that can out-think ya, that’d be Serena. Serena Deeb is very cerebral.” Dustin Rhodes says Deeb took things into her own hands in a dastardly way, and people took notice. Schiavone says that as much as he knows how great a competitor Deeb is, he doesn’t think Thunder Rosa can be beaten. Dustin says he mentors, coaches and supports Rosa 110%. JR says Rosa is more physical than Deeb, and Schiavone adds that Rosa pushes herself. The champion is the favorite, because she is the champion. La Mera Mera is the frontrunner for winning at Double or Nothing, but will the Professor of Pro-Wrestling have a winning formula?


Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Opening Round: Toni Storm VS Jamie Hayter!

The Lightning From Down Under has competed in and even won her fair share of tournaments, and looks to make even more history with this one! But will this Storm fizzle out? Or are Hayters gonna hate it when it’s #ToniTime in the semifinals?

The bell rings and the two tie right up. They go around, Storm headlocks but Hayter endures the grind. Hayter slips out the back, headlocks Storm, but Storm rolls her to a cover. ONE, but Hayter holds on to shift to a facelock. Storm switches the facelock onto Hayter, they roll, and Storm hooks an arm. Hayter fights up, Storm throws her down hard for a lateral press, ONE! Storm keeps on the facelock but Hayter throws body shots. Hayter gets free and gets away to a corner. Storm steps to Hayter but Hayter stays back to catch her breath. Fans rally and duel, the two reset and feel things out. They knuckle lock, then go shoulder to shoulder!

The test of strength is a deadlock, but Hayter starts bending Storm back. Hayter sweeps a leg, cover, ONE as Storm gets her hand up! Hayter puts it down, ONE as Storm gets the other up. Hayter puts Storm down, Storm bridges up! Hayter CHOPS Storm on the stomach! Things speed up, Storm redirects and basement dropkicks! Hayter bails out, Storm pursues and throws forearms! Storm puts Hayter in, Hayter gets moving and she BOOTS Storm off the apron! Storm is down and Hayter dusts herself off as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Hayter goes out after Storm, drags her up and snap suplexes her to the floor hard! Storm writhes and pounds the mat but Hayter gets in the ring. Hayter counts along with the ref but Storm drags herself up and to the ring at 5 of 10. Hayter stomps Storm right down! Hayter digs her boots in at the corner, the ref counts and Hayter lets off at 4. Hayter then drags Storm up, whips her hard into buckles, then brings her around to do it again! Cover, TWO! Storm gets back to the corner but Hayter mocks the fans. Hayter CLUBS Storm, Storm kicks from below, it’s scrappy even with Storm on the mat! Hayter drags Storm up to snap suplex!

Hayter takes her time soaking up heat while Storm writhes. Now Hayter covers, ONE! Hayter is annoyed that Storm is still in this but she clamps on a headlock. Hayter grinds Storm, shifts to a facelock, but Storm endures. Hayter hooks an arm, she has a grovit of sorts, but Storm fights up. Dynamite returns to single picture as Storm throw body shots. Hayter blocks the whip, then CHOPS! Storm CHOPS back, so Hayter CHOPS again! They go CHOP for CHOP, neither letting go of the wrist! They start throwing forearms, DOUBLE FOREARMS take them both down! Fans fire up while both women get to corners.

Storm fires herself up and fans rally behind her! Storm runs corner to corner, HIP ATTACK! Then she hauls Hayter up, TORNADO DDT! Tonight is Tornado Night, apparently! And furthermore, Storm goes to the apron as Hayter bails out, TORNADO DDT to the floor! Storm drags Hayter back into the ring, then climbs up the corner. Hayter stands, Storm leaps, CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!! Hayter barely gets that shoulder up! Storm is frustrated but she drags Hayter back up. Hayter fights the Alabama lift, then catches Storm for an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Storm survives and now Hayter is frustrated.

Hayter drags Storm back up, ripcords, but Storm ducks and gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX! Hayter flounders to a corner and Storm hurries after her. They both go to the apron, and Storm fires forearm after forearm! But Hayter gets her, APRON URENAGE!! Hayter drags Storm back in and fans are fired up! Hayter RAMS Storm into a corner, hoists her up top, and then goes up after her. Hayter HEADBUTTS Storm, then brings her up, SUPERPLEX! But she holds on to get Storm up, but Storm cradle counters! TWO!! Storm dodges Hayter’s haymaker to backslides, Hayter rolls through, but into the STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (advances to the semifinals)

Well, at least now Britt won’t have to worry about facing a friend in the next round. But the question will be, will Storm be facing the Doctor? Or the joker?


AEW hears from Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian.

The Face of the Revolution says he will make everyone put respect on his name and the AEW TNT Championship. This Friday on Rampage, he faces someone who is a brother to him, is a former tag team partner, and is someone he traveled the globe with many times over in Frankie Kazarian. It’ll be friendly fire but the title is on the line, so it will be hot as hell. But there can only be ONE Face of TNT. And this Friday, we’re looking at it. Scorpio will SCU there.

As for the Heavy Metal Rebel, Lexi Nair interviews him about this match. How is he feeling about taking on a former tag partner? Kaz has a lot on his mind, but he gets interrupted by Sammy Guevara & Tay Conti. Sammy has some thoughts for Kaz. Kaz has history with Sky, but that man Kaz knew is not the one he’s facing this Friday. That man is dead, and this one will stab Kaz in the back. Kaz can’t trust Scorpio. Trust? A lecture on trust from these two? Sammy, Kaz has been around a long time, he knows who he can and cannot trust. More importantly, he trusts himself, and ultimately, that’s all he needs. So go be unlikeable somewhere else.

Sammy hopes Kaz is right. And he says he’ll SCU later. SamTay kiss before heading out, and Kaz says Sammy’s vlog sucks. But will the Heavy Metal Rebel be ready for anything against American Top Team’s leading man?


Double or Nothing’s Buy-In has a match!

After the shocking defeat and the amazing moment in the ring, #Hookhausen has a match against Tony Nese & Mark Sterling! Will Smart Mark and his premier client regret angering the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil into doing something very nice, very evil?


Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament Opening Round No Holds Barred: Jeff Hardy w/ Matt Hardy VS Darby Allin w/ Sting!

Tony Khan has approved the special request of these two daredevils! Now nothing, not disqualifications, not count-outs, not even self-preservation, will hold back the Charismatic Enigma and Relentless One! But then whose body lasts longer and moves on to the semifinals?

The bell rings and Darby rushes to SHOTGUN Jeff down! Jeff gets out but Darby DIVES! Direct hit at the ramp and Darby is fired up! Fans fire up with him as he brings out chair after chair after chair! He’s got about eight chairs! Darby starts setting the chairs up and fans are fired up for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” Darby goes from chair square to a chair rectangle, using all eight chairs! Jeff crawls to the ring but Darby hurries after. Jeff FLAPJACKS Darby onto the steel steps! Darby checks his face while Jeff moves the steps around. Sting and Matt give Jeff space, but Darby RAMS into Jeff. Darby whips, Jeff reverses but Darby leaps over the steps!

Darby rolls and comes back, only for Jeff to leap off the steps and CLOBBER Darby! Fans fire up while Jeff shakes out his arms. Jeff hobbles over to reposition the steps again. The steps are now on their side, and with the top facing Darby. Darby gets up but Jeff drags him onto the steps. Darby slips off to RAM Jeff into the post, and almost into Matt! Matt hurries to get away and Darby puts Jeff in the ring. Darby drags Jeff up but Jeff fights back through the ropes. TWIST OF HOTSHOT! Jeff then goes looking, and he brings out a LADDER! Fans love this already as Jeff brings that ladder into the ring!

Dynamite goes picture in picture as Jeff hurries to get in. Darby grabs the ladder for his own, but now he and Jeff tug-o-war over it. They both drop the ladder to go after each other! Jeff kicks low, reels Darby in, but Darby fights free to hop on, CODE RED! Cover, TWO! Jeff survives but Darby grabs the ladder. Darby moves it aside and he drags Jeff around. Darby runs, springboards, but Jeff catches the Coffin Splash! Jeff spins Darby around to JAWBREAKER! Darby flounders to a corner, Jeff rallies the fans and gives Darby the HARDYAC DROPKICK! Darby flops out of the ring but Hardy has to steady himself a moment.

Sting coaches Darby but Jeff goes out after him. Jeff stomps Darby, smacks him off those chairs, and again, before going into the ring. Jeff hobbles, gets that ladder, and stands it up. That is a TALL ladder as Jeff makes sure it is intertwined with the ropes. Darby is sprawled on his own chair rectangle, and fans fire up as Jeff starts climbing! Jeff reaches the top of that ladder, but Darby hurries up the other side! Jeff hurries to meet Darby as Dynamite returns to single picture, but Darby YANKS Jeff down! Hardy gets crotched on his enigma! Darby kicks Jeff down, then Darby climbs! Darby’s up top real fast, and he copies Jeff’s usual pose, before a SUPER FULL METAL SWANTON!!!

Fans lose their minds from Darby and Jeff crashing on the chairs!! It’s hard to tell if the chairs or the human beings are in worse shape! The ref checks on Darby and Jeff but somehow they’re both still conscious. Darby pushes chairs aside as fans chant, “This is Awesome!” Darby manages to get Jeff in a headlock and drag him to the ring. Darby pushes Jeff in, then climbs the corner! But Jeff drags himself to the apron on the other side. So Darby adjusts course, APRON COFFIN DROP only gets apron as Jeff moves!! Matt still checks on his brother while the ref and Sting check on Darby. Jeff goes out as fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!”

Jeff drags Darby onto the steel steps. TWIST OF FATE to the steel! But Jeff isn’t done there, he throws off his shirt and goes up the corner! Fans are ready to lose their minds again as Jeff aims, SWANTON onto steel steps and only steps! Darby dodges, the steps get bent, and now the ref checks Jeff! Jeff is somehow okay to continue, and Darby is somehow hobbling his way over to Jeff. Darby drags Jeff up, puts him in the ring, then Darby goes up the corner again. COFFIN DROP!! Cover, TWO!?!? And into a ghost pin into the ladder!! JEFF WINS!!

Winner: Jeff Hardy, by pinfall (advances to the semifinals)

Even Matt is shocked! But somehow, someway, Brother Nero snatches victory from the jaws of defeat! Now will he render Adam Cole OBSOLETE? Speaking of, the Undisputed Elite, from Adam Cole to reDRagon to the Young Bucks appear on stage. Will Cole be the first to represent the Undisputed Elite in the Owen Hart Cup finals? And what of Kyle O’Reilly taking on Rey Fenix?

My Thoughts:

A great episode for Dynamite here, and an awesome start to the Owen Hart tournaments! Good promo from Britt and Hayter, Storm VS Hayter was great stuff, but of course Hayter and Britt weren’t going to be facing each other next round. Storm gets a great win, and I can’t wait to see who the women’s tournament joker will be. I have a feeling Britt finds a way to win, no matter who it is, but it’ll be a great match to give us Britt VS Storm. Cole VS Dax was an awesome opener, and they had a lot of great references to the rivalry of Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart, especially with Cole using the Sharpshooter to win. Cole is moving on, it’d be pretty wild if he and Britt both won the tournaments.

The main event was badass because of how they made it No Holds Barred. Jeff and Darby went balls to the wall with that, and WOW that ladder top Swanton onto those chairs. Not to mention how that wasn’t even the end! I think this is the second time steel steps have been bent like that in AEW. But then Jeff winning was actually quite the shock. I thought Jeff was going to drop out early so that the Hardys and the Young Bucks could build towards Double or Nothing. I suppose it can still happen next round with Cole beating Jeff, and we do get a dream match of Cole VS Jeff. Joe and Lethal’s team have a good promo to hype up Joe VS Joker, can’t wait to see who they get for that, too.

Good vignette to hype up Rosa VS Deeb, and a good promo from Scorpio as well as a good promo from Kaz with Sammy all to hype up the TNT Championship. I do like that Sammy thinks Kaz should be careful of Scorpio still being a Heel, but Sammy being a Heel himself, he could just be messing with Kaz. Nese squashing Danhausen to then give rise to #Hookhausen was great stuff, and everyone is going to love that Buy-In tag match. I expect Sterling takes the loss so that Nese stays unpinned and unsubmitted in AEW, and then Nese loses to Hook 1v1 down the line. Hell, I bet fans get Hookhausen to the tag titles because fans love them both so much.

The FTW Championship was great stuff, but I had a feeling something screwy would happen. Starks retains, and then we got great stare downs from Team Taz, Keith & Swerve, and Jurassic Express. Jurassic Express VS Starks & Hobbs is good, but I wonder if they’ll step this up into a Triple Threat. A Triple Threat can be a great way to get the titles off Jurassic Express without actually hurting them. And with Jungle Boy needing Christian to encourage him, we could be seeing Jurassic Express falling apart and turning on Christian or vice-versa. FTR can come back to the AEW World Tag titles after Double or Nothing, perhaps getting their big moment at All Out.

The contract signing for MJF VS Wardlow was great stuff from top to bottom. MJF had Long Island on his side, they played along with him perfectly, and so much of what MJF is putting Wardlow through is a great callback to MJF VS Cody. The Dark Side of the Ring parody was genius, too, especially with Jericho’s narration. Wardlow will somehow, someway make it through the whipping, the rigged cage match, and will get to beat up MJF. And speaking of Jericho, the JAS had a great segment, and I like that the BCC are reinforcing Kingston’s team. It is good continuity since Moxley is Kingston’s friend, and with Yuta going to Japan for Best of the Super Juniors, Moxley and Danielson make Kingston’s team five, we could get JAS VS Team Mad King in Blood & Guts or some other big match.

There was also a lot of genius stuff in Punk VS Silver with Hangman on commentary. Punk played being Heel this time to keep us guessing after Hangman’s promo last week felt almost Heel. Turns out, Tavaren left the Islanders so that’s why it was the perfect jersey for Punk to wear. Punk VS Silver was a great match in itself, and Punk stealing Buck Shot to win was wild. Punk had a great promo to get on Hangman’s nerves, and Hangman just flipping Punk off was a fitting response. Their match at Double or Nothing still feels like it could go either way, Vegas is going to be electric that whole match.

And for those wondering, all the extra Tornado DDT’s from tonight, they’re all in honor of Fuego Del Sol. It seems that after a surgery from last month, Fuego’s neck is now left with a one inch hole in it! He shared a picture of it on his Twitter, but being that it is a hole in his neck, be careful if you go looking for it. On behalf of the Chairshot, I hope Fuego gets well soon and can return to the ring.

My Score: 8.9/10

It’s the Double or Nothing Buy-In!

Join Renee Paquette, Paul “Big Show” Wight, Stokely Hathaway and Kazeem Famuyide in discussing, analyzing and predicting everything tonight on this high stakes night for AEW! Oh, and RJ City is backstage on the red carpet.


Jim Ross interviews Don Callis.

Watch the full version here. Good ol’ JR asked Don, “How do you want this whole saga to conclude?” Don says he has done the hardest thing that a parent or family member could do. It was a cancer eating away with him, and what do you do with a cancer? You cut it out. And Don wants Kenny Omega to know, he hasn’t even started cutting yet. What more can Don possibly do to Kenny Omega after betraying him?


RJ City interviews Arn Anderson.

RJ is intimidated by The Enforcer, and he asks that in tonight’s TNT Championship match, Wardlow’s title will be hanging from the rafters because he got goaded into a ladder match. It feels like they’re playing into Christian Cage’s hands, what is the plan to win? Arn asks, “What makes you think anybody got goaded into their hands?” Arn reminds us that he and Wardlow are playing chess to Christian’s checkers, and they were the ones goading Christian into a match. Does RJ know how heavy a 10 foot ladder is? Arn sure doesn’t see Christian carrying one around much. But he does see Wardlow having yet to unleash what we’re about to see tonight, “in a town that’s up all night long.”

This isn’t them playing around, they’re getting down to business. And Wardlow’s going off tonight. RJ asks Arn if he’s packing heat tonight. Arn chuckles. Ask your mama. “My new step-father, Arn Anderson. Back to you, Renee.” Will the Maestro of Mayhem conduct the most memorable Powerbomb Symphony of all time?


Buy-In – High Stakes Six Man Tag: Hook & The Hardy Boyz w/ Isiah Kassidy VS Ethan Page & The Gunns!

The Firm may have been DELETED, but All Ego & The Ass Boys still want to bring Matt & Jeff Hardy down! However, taking out Isiah Kassidy only opened the door to the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil!

Renee Paquette is on stage.

She welcomes us to the opening ceremonies for the 2023 Owen Hart Cup, and welcomes out Dr. Martha Hart. Martha makes her entrance and has a mic of her own. Renee says it is always so great to have Marth, and it was this time last year that we had the tournament finals. This year, it all kicks off on Forbidden Door weekend. Yes, and Martha wants to say she is so happy to be back in beautiful Las Vegas. She is so happy to be back here with the AEW Family, and her own Owen Hart Foundation and her own family. She welcomes us all to the opening ceremonies of this year’s tournament to celebrate one of the most memorable wrestlers of all-time in Owen Hart.

Fans chant “OWEN! OWEN!” and Martha says that while last year, we were to dress up in bling and such, but the tournament is turning on its head and getting “gangster” this year. Maybe we should have our fedoras. Tony Khan walks out in such a fedora, with the Owen Hart Foundation logo on it. And Martha says this is not wrapping here but kicking off in Canada! And this will round up in Calgary at “the greatest outdoor show on earth,” the Calgary Stampede, July 15th! Make sure to bring your cowboy hats, pardners! Who will be in on this great tribute tournament to become the 2023 King and Queen of Hart?


Get ready to roll the dice.

“As the desert sun sets, the stakes rise. And on this Vegas night, fate will favor the bold, the risk takers. Only those willing to pay a high price survive this town. And the odds on the future? One in four. Tonight, from T-Mobile Arena, this is AEW Double or Nothing.”


AEW International Blackjack Battle Royal!

Orange Cassidy has made it to 22 defenses with this title, but this is going to be the biggest challenge yet! Including himself, this will be a 21 Man Battle Royal, all for the title! Will Freshly Squeezed survive The Superbad Squad, the Varsity Athletes, The Mogul Embassy, Naturally Limitless, “Big Bill” Morrissey, #TAIGASTYLE Lee Moriarty, Bullet Club Gold, “Absolute” Ricky Starks, Bandido, Komander, The Lucha Brothers, and even his own Best Friends? Or will someone come out of this the brand new champion?

Cassidy is the only one standing in the ring while everyone else surrounds him on the outside. The belt is raised, the bell rings, and Kip Sabian rushes in! Kip throws Cassidy up and over, but Cassidy holds onto the ropes! Naturally, Jay White & Juice Robinson go after Starks, Bandido goes after Kip and ends up saving Cassidy. Kip bumps Bandido off buckles, Fenix stomps Cassidy, and Penta just revels in the chaos. Penta goes after Daivari with CHOPS, Kip takes Cassidy’s sunglasses, but Fenix stomps Cassidy. Kip puts the sunglasses on, brings Cassidy up, Trent ASAI MOONSAULTS onto Morrissey!

Kip tries to throw Cassidy out again but he holds onto ropes to save himself. Cassidy throws elbows, Kip staggers away, The Butcher & The Blade go after Naturally Limitless, doing Swerve Strickland’s work for him. Starks lands on the apron, he ROCKS Juice, shoulders into White, then goes after them both! Josh Woods helps Daivari stay on the apron, and Komander tightrope walks?! He SUPER TORNILLOS Morrissey & Moriarty! Fans lose their minds and Komander gets back to the ring. White CHOKES Penta on the ropes, stomps him, then stomps Ricky. Penta GAMANGIRIS Daivari, then CLUBS White!

Bandido stomps Juice, Komander stomps Tony Nese, Bandido SUPERKICKS Juice! There’s still brawling on the outside, and the Lucha Amigos get the fans all fired up! They bring Nese up, “CERO! MIEDO!” Bandido suplexes Nese, and the others play defense! Bandido holds Nese up for TEN while forearms and SUPERKICKS fly all around! Then at TWENTY, the SLAM!! Bandido has everyone fired up and Bandido trophy lifts Nese! He still has the power to do that!? And then he TOSSES Nese out onto Woods to ELIMINATE him!!

AEW Women’s World Championship: Jamie Hayter VS Toni Storm!

A tale as old as time in pro-wrestling: two best friends are torn apart by success, ambition, jealousy and pride. The two were at odds even before Hayter defeated Storm to become champion, and things have only escalated from there. Will Hayter have to hit Storm even harder to end this? Or will being an Outcast be exactly what Storm needs to strike Hayter down?

Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass won the Tres de Mayo Trios Battle Royal over three weeks ago and are still building momentum in the Trios Division. But will they be able to bring down Rush, Dralistico & Preston Vance? Or will LFI make Sin City tranquilo?

But of course, Platinum Max has a diss track! “Acclaimed in the house, we the nicest ever. This is not a game, this is not Fight Forever. Rush, you’re losing your cred. How you gonna fight us with all your pubes on your head? Wait, is this guy from Tijuana, bro? He looks like the dominatrix at the donkey show! We’ll make your crew say adios. Acclaimed here to win this match mas rapido!” Bowens gets the mic to say, “LAAAAS VEGAAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS~!” And he does~! But will this be muy bien for The Acclaimed? Or muy malo?

The trios sort out and fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” Bowens starts against Dralistico and the two circle. Dralistico copies the conducting of the choir, and even offers the scissor finger.

But Dralistico gets away and tags in Perro Peligroso. Bowens tags in Caster, and The Dangerous Dog circles with Platinum Max. They tie up, Vance headlocks, and Caster powers up and out. Vance runs Caster over, mocks the scissors, then runs. Caster drops, hurdles, then arm-drags! Caster has Vance’s arm and thrusts with it! Then Caster clamps the armlock, but Vance fights up to ROCK him with a forearm! Vance whips, Caster ducks ‘n’ dodges, and leaps, but into Vance’s arms!

The LFI mug Caster more, then Rush CHOPS him in a corner. Dralistico CHOPS Caster, and then Vance stands Caster back up to CHOP him, too! LFI double whip Caster corner to corner, Dralistico runs in to SPLASH, and then Vance runs in to clothesline! Rush powers up, runs, and jumps just to BOOT Caster! Rush rolls back to tranquilo while the rest of LFI raise the fists. Fans rally for The Acclaimed while Vance bumps Caster off buckles. Vance then runs to BOOT Bowens! Rush drags Caster out, throws body shots, and then he and Dralistico put Caster back in for Vance. Vance then sends Caster back out to them, to send into railing!

Fans boo, the ref reprimands, but then LFI brawls with The Acclaimed on the outside! Rampage returns to single picture as fans chant “REF YOU SUCK!” Billy is sent into railing, and Dralistico dumps Bowens over into the front row! Vance keeps on Caster while Dralistico HEADBUTTS Bowens while he’s sitting on a fan’s lap! The fans help Bowens get up, Vance drags Caster up and tags in Dralistico.

A fast ‘n’ furious battle, and Daddy Ass and his boys make it through! Bowens gets the mic to say, “How we doin’ tonight, Vegas?” Fans cheer, they’re doing great! “The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass, we feel the exact same way, because we’ve been running through this Trios Division all month long! And seeing as though we are in Vegas, I think we should do some gambling. What do you say?” Bowens says that if Vegas is gonna gamble, maybe Sunday night, remember this: The House always wins, but never bet on Black! Because EVERYONE LOVES THE ACCLAIMED! Bowens, Caster & Billy call out Malakai, Brody & Buddy, will the scissors cut down the House of Black?


Six Man Tag: Ethan Page & The Gunns VS ???

From one trios match to another, All Ego & The Ass Boys are taking on The Hardy Party at Double or Nothing, with Ethan’s contract on the line! Will Ethan, Austin & Colten be rolling into Sunday to exact revenge on Matt & Jeff?

The trios sort out, Austin starts against ??? and the two circle. Ethan & Colten distract ???, and Austin CLOBBERS him! Austin swaggers, then tags in Colten.

And then he and the Gunns get 222 up, feed to the 3:10 TO YUMA!! Cover, Ethan & The Gunns win!

Winners: Ethan Page & The Gunns, by pinfall

Ethan isn’t done, either, he wants a mic! A mic is given, and Ethan says he wants to talk to the “bozos” in Vegas. “Shut up, you basic ass civilians.” Ethan doesn’t care if anyone here was watching, he wants The Hardy Boyz to have been watching. Because if so, they just saw what a REAL three man crew, a REAL trio, can do! A REAL team! And on Sunday, guess we won’t find out what the Hardy Party can do because these three took out Kassidy! FOR GOOD! So it is clearly going to be 3v2 now. But wait, here come the Hardy Boys! Fans fire up as Matt & Jeff are on stage, and Jeff has a mic of his own!

Jeff says, “The Ass Boys are looking good out here on Rampage with a boost of ego. This Sunday, the Egos will be DELETED, compliments of us.” Matt tells Ethan that his contract and his ass will belong to Matt now! If they have to fight 3v2, they’re not afraid to. Because to them, fear is only a four letter word. Wait, Kassidy is here with a neck brace? Ethan mocks them to come on down, and Austin mocks the moaning and squealing. Kassidy says unfortunately, the doctor did not clear him to compete. However… He found a replacement. It’s HOOK!! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil did help Hardy Party in the Firm Deletion, so he has returned to help them again!

Fans fire up as Hook follows the Hardy Boys to the ring, and that sends Ethan & The Gunns running! Will the remnants of The Firm be torn down once and for all now that Kassidy has #SentHook?


Backstage interview with Naturally Limitless.

Lexi Nair is with Keith Lee & Dustin Rhodes, and we all know things have been heating up between them and the now Mogul Embassy. It has just been announced that Swerve Strickland and Brian Cage are both in the Blackjack Battle Royal, as are they. What does that mean for them? Imagine that, huh? Swerve and Cage in a battle royal. So after Keith & Dustin eliminate them, because this is all for the International Championship, then Keith & Dustin can just eliminate everyone else and then make a decision on who wins it all. Dustin is confident he and Keith can come to an agreement.

But Swerve and Cage, you know it’s heated. You know it’s coming. Be ready. Keith adds that if the Embassy is in this, then he can’t wait! Keith heads out, and Dustin hopes Swerve saw that. Will nothing stop Keith & Dustin settling things with Swerve’s House this Sunday?


Britt Baker & Hikaru Shida VS Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir!

While The Doctor & The Full Metal Warrior couldn’t put away the Outcasts, they are sticking together in this ongoing battle of AEW Homegrowns and everyone else. Will these former AEW Women’s World Champions prove they are still a formidable team? Or will the Vicious Vixens be a major problem for them?

The teams sort out, Shida starts against Nyla as no strangers to each other. They circle, and then Nyla kicks low and CLUBS Shida on the back! Nyla bumps Shida off buckles, then tags in Marina. The Vixens double whip, but Shida ducks the double ax handles to shove Marina into Nyla, and then shove them both into a corner! Shida runs corner to corner to KNEE them both down! Shida then snap suplexes Marina onto Nyla! Fans fire up with Shida and she points to Britt. Fans fire up as Shida tags in Britt! Britt fires off on Marina, but Marina shoves her back.

Britt brings Marin up, ROCKS her, and then whips her to ropes. Marina reverses to CHOP and BOOT Britt down! Marina scowls, storms up on Britt, and tags in Nyla. The Vixens mug Britt in the corner, and Nyla CHOKES Britt on the ropes! Nyla laughs right into the corner camera before she lets go at 4. Fans boo as Nyla stands on Britt and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Nyla lets off as the ref counts, and then Nyla drags Britt up. Nyla scoops Britt to SLAM her down, then she soaks up the heat. Nyla stomps Britt, drags her up, and scoops to SLAM her again! Nyla mocks the “D! M! D!” and then stalks Britt to scoop her again. Britt slips off, but Nyla choke grips her for a CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO! Marina and Shida shout at each other, and Nyla brings Britt up to CLUB her on the back. Nyla bumps Britt off buckles, tags Marina, and Marina fires off body shots! Marina kicks Britt’s legs out, then tags Nyla back in. The Vixens drag Britt up to whip her hard into the corner!

Marina whips Nyla in to SPLASH! And then Nyla feeds Britt to Marina’s BOOT! Marina taunts Shida, clamps onto Britt with an armlock, and she grinds Britt down. Britt endures, reaches out, throws slapping hands on Marina, but then Marina whips Britt back into the corner! Nyla tags back in, the Vixens mug Britt more, and Nyla RAMS Britt in the corner! And again! And again! Nyla sits Britt down, digs her boot in, and mockingly counts along with the ref before letting off at 4. Nyla snapmares, clamps claws onto Britt’s shoulders, and Rampage goes to break.

Gotta be careful going barefoot! Hot tag to Shida! Shida dodges Marina, ENZIGURIS her down, then rolls to SHOTEI Nyla! Marina throws a forearm, but Shida throws a flurry in return! Fans fire up with Shida as she just hammers away on Marina! Marina staggers around, swings, but Shida DECKS her! Shida puts Marina in a corner, climbs up, and Shida rains down more fists!

They went after her backstage! Shida & Britt hurry to the back but the damage has been done! Will Hayter be able to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship after this?


Mark Henry welcomes us back to Rampage.

“Tonight, ahead of the Blackjack Battle Royal, Lee Moriarty & Big Bill take on Best Friends. Let’s see which team comes out on top. Well, it looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!” Will Trent Beretta & Chuck Taylor have the hot hand going into the International Championship match? Or will #TAIGASTYLE and the human skyscraper make bust them already?

Best Friends VS Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey!

As Best Friends make their entrance, we see their best amigos, Bandido, Komander and even The Lucha Brothers all watching from the front row. They’re all going to be in the battle royal, too, and well, look at that. It would seem The Superbad Squad and the Varsity Athletes had the same idea. They’re all together in one section watching this in person, too.

Anyway, the teams sort out and Moriarty starts against Chuck. They circle, Chuck does some drop steps, and then the two tie up. Chuck waistlocks, wrenches an arm, then wristlocks. Moriarty works on the escape, but Chuck cranks the wrist. Moriarty stomps a leg, rolls and kips up to then arm-drag free. Chuck backs off and Moriarty does his dance. Fans boo but Bill cheers. Trent tags in and he circles with Moriarty. They tie up, Moriarty gets around to a waistlock but Trent switches. Moriarty switches back, Trent switches again, but Moriarty elbows free and hits a headlock takeover.

Trent headscissors, Moriarty kips free and hits another headlock takeover. Trent headscissors again, Moriarty kips free again, and fans cheer the standoff. Moriarty does his dance and fans boo again. Moriarty claps at Trent, but Trent offers a handshake. Moriarty accepts, but he sees the cheap shot coming! Trent laughs it off, but Moriarty rakes the eyes! Moriarty CHOPS Trent to ropes, whips him, but Trent reverses. Chuck hits Moriarty, but Moriarty DECKS him! But then Trent CLOBBERS Moriarty! Fans fire up with Trent and he brings Moriarty up. Trent CHOPS Moriarty down, then tags Chuck.

Best Friends double whip Moriarty to a corner, then Trent sends Chuck in to clothesline! Trent runs in to ELBOW! Trent brings Moriarty out, Best Friends double suplex! They both flex on Morrissey, then SLAM Moriarty down! Fans cheer but Big Bill runs in! He breaks the double clothesline to DOUBLE LARIAT the Best Friends! Bill clotheslines Chuck out, then he whips Trent corner to corner hard! Trent tumbles up and out and Bill paces. Best Friends are down while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Bill goes out to stomp Trent around, then stalks Trent. Bill rains down fists on Trent, but Chuck is after Moriarty! Chuck whips but Moriarty reverses to send Chuck into railing! Bill drags Trent up, ROCKS him, and Moriarty puts Chuck in the ring. Moriarty drags Chuck up, UPPERCUTS him, and then CHOKES him on the ropes! The ref counts, Moriarty lets off, and he distracts the ref so Bill can BOOT Chuck down! Moriarty covers, TWO! Moriarty drags Chuck up, the Varsity Athletes and Superbad Squad aren’t impressed with any of this, but Bill tags in. Bill throws body shots, the Lucha Brothers cheer Chuck on.

Bill digs his boot in, but steps off as the ref counts, and Moriarty CHOKES Chuck now! Trent protests but Moriarty scurries away. Bill soaks up the heat from Vegas, then he DECKS Chuck! Bill drags Chuck up, ROCKS him again, then tags in Moriarty. They mug Chuck, stomp away on him, and the ref counts. Moriarty lets off and roars, then goes back to Chuck. Moriarty drags Chuck up to wrench an arm into an ELBOW BREAKER! Moriarty snapmares Chuck, wraps him up, but Chuck fights the straitjacket. Moriarty turns Chuck over and hammerlocks an arm, to then SNAP LOCK it!

Chuck endures, even as Moriarty bridges over! Moriarty then goes back around to SNAP LOCK the arm again! Chuck endures, Moriarty bridges again, and then SNAP LOCKS a third time! Chuck manages to sit up, he throws some elbows, and he gets free! Only for Moriarty to DECK Trent with a cheap shot! Moriarty CLUBS Chuck, brings him around and tosses him out! The ref is distracted with Moriarty and Bill goes over to run at Chuck. But Chuck dodges, and the big boot from Big Bill gets stuck on the railing! That’s not good for Little Willie! Rampage returns to single picture and Moriarty rushes out! Chuck dodges and slides in, to hot tag Trent!

Fans fire up as Trent gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX Moriarty! And then GERMAN SUPLEX again! And HALF ‘N’ HALF SUPLEX! Fans fire up while Moriarty flops out of the ring. Trent builds speed to DIVE, but into Big Bill’s  big hands! APRON CHOKE SLAM!! The Lucha Amigos all wince from that and Trent flops to the floor. Bill drags Trent up, puts him in the ring, and then he tags in. Bill runs in at Trent, but Trent dodges the splash! Bill hits buckles and maybe even post! Trent half nelsons but Bill elbows free, only to get a SEXY CHUCKIE KNEE! Trent then reels Bill back in, SOLE FOOD HALF ‘N’ HALF!!

Fans fire up with Best Friends, and Best Friends HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! Trent then drags Bill up while Chuck climbs the corner. But Moriarty CLUBS Chuck down off the corner! Bill turns Alabama Lift into Canadian Rack, but Trent slips free! Trent runs, but into the BIG BOSS MAN SLAM!! Fans fire up from that feat of strength, and Bill tags Moriarty. They haul Trent up, Bill full nelsons and Moriarty gets the legs, NARAKU!! Cover off the full nelson swinging bomb, but Chuck breaks it!! Fans fire up as Best Friends survive! Moriarty drags Chuck up to TOSS him! Tag to Bill and they go back to Trent.

Moriarty wants Bill to go to the corner and Bill climbs up. Moriarty brings Trent up, but Chuck anchors Bill! Trent sends Moriarty into Little Willie! Moriarty flops out of the ring, and Best Friends fire off hands on Bill! They adjust Bill’s position up there, then climb up after him! DOUBLE SUPERPLEX!! Trent crawls to the cover, TWO!!! Bill survives and the Varsity Athletes are amused. The Lucha Amigos rally for Trent & Chuck as Chuck reels Bill in. But Moriarty slides in to claw Chuck’s eyes! The ref reprimands but Trent whips Moriarty. Moriarty reverses to send Trent out and then BOOT him down!

But Chuck kicks Moriarty and reels him in! AWFUL WAFFLE!! But Bill BOOTS Chuck!! Bill choke grips, and SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAMS him!! Cover, Bill & Moriarty win!

Winners: Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Moriarty & Morrissey stand tall, but this was in tag team action. The battle royal is every man for himself, will it come down to these two at the end? Wait, they go up to the Lucha Amigos to talk some trash, and Bandido gives thumbs down right to their faces. Bill shoves Bandido, so Bandido throws a forearm! Moriarty goes after Bandido, the Lucha Brothers go after Moriarty and Bill! And then Butcher, Blade, Kip, and the Varsity Athletes join in! People are sent into railing, and the Varsity Athletes mug Trent in the ring! Sterling tells them to keep going, but here comes ORANGE CASSIDY himself!

The Freshly Squeezed International Champion is here, he runs the Varsity Athletes off swinging his backpack, but the other entrants are still brawling it out on the outside! Cassidy shows off the prize, but here comes THE MACHINE! Brian Cage storms his way down to the ring, but here comes KEITH LEE! He and Dustin Rhodes storm their way down to the ring, and they add a lot of beef to the brawl! Naturally Limitless mugs Cage, the Varsity Athletes still mug Trent, and Cassidy just looks around at the chaos. But then “Whose House? SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve is here in person, but he doesn’t seem in any rush to save Cage.

Keith eyes Swerve from the ramp, but Dustin still throws hands on Cage. Keith storms up after Swerve, but Swerve laughs and dares him to follow backstage. Cage turns things around on Dustin, all the other teams keep beating on each other! If this is how it is to close Rampage, how much wilder will it get when the title is on the line?

My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage for the go-home of Double or Nothing, and obviously since we didn’t see the traditional pre-battle-royal brawl on Dynamite, of course we saw it here to close the show. The main event tag match was great stuff, and what a great surprise that Best Friends didn’t win! The go-home math now says Moriarty & Morrissey aren’t winning, though I would love if one of them did have a belt. Honestly, they’re trying to make it seem like Cassidy is going to retain the title, since almost everyone else in the battle royal either A) has a feud going already or B) just isn’t at midcard champion level yet.

For example, Swerve & Cage VS Keith & Dustin. We should’ve had some kind of blowoff way sooner than this, maybe on a themed Dynamite and in a No Disqualification style match. Same thing for Ricky Starks, Jay White and Juice Robinson being in this match. But that problem goes all the way back to how AEW handled Starks VS Jericho and the Jericho Appreciation Society. In the end, if anyone new is winning this belt, I would actually want it to be Komander. Komander is still with AAA, so I would love to see him do a tour of Mexico with the title the same way Pac toured the UK with it to establish that first reign.

Decent squash match from Ethan & Gunns beating those jobbers we never even got the names of, and great promo with Hardy Party to establish a new take on the Six Man Tag. Hook joining is a natural choice given he helped the Hardys against The Firm before, but something about this feels like the same backwards pacing as we’ve seen with Starks. The Hardys should’ve turned the contract control tables on Ethan way before The Firm Deletion, with The Firm Deletion being the blowoff that sends the Hardys and Ethan in different directions. Hook & Hardys will definitely win, and we will get who knows how many months of shenanigans where Matt orders Ethan around.

Really good women’s tag match with Britt & Shida winning, even though there’s nothing to win for women’s tag teams in AEW anymore/right now. But of course The Outcasts attack Hayter 3v1 to put her on the defensive. This go-home math would mean Hayter overcomes the odds because she has Britt & Shida helping against Saraya & Ruby. Personally, I’m hoping Taya Valkyrie beats Jade Cargill for the TBS Championship, so that Jade can then jump up to the world title scene and really just tear into all six ladies. What bigger way to lead into AEW Collision, AEW All In and AEW All Out this Summer than with Jade finally being more than the midcard champion?

And great stuff at the beginning with The Acclaimed VS LFI. I just knew Acclaimed would find a way to win and then call out The House of Black. Apparently House of Black issued an open challenge for Double or Nothing, so The Acclaimed has answered it already. I am curious to know what stipulation The Acclaimed will bring to the Open House, but I really can’t be sure who wins. The House of Black have made the Trios Championships unique from the other titles, and have a growing popularity with the fans, but The Acclaimed are also really popular. This is like how AEW booked themselves into a corner with Hobbs VS Wardlow, and look where that’s gotten Hobbs.

My Score: 8.7/10
