Six Man Tag: Death Triangle w/ Alex Abrahantes VS The Andrade Family Office!
Rey Fenix made his return and now Death Triangle is at full power! But while the Firebird has an Owen Hart Foundation opening round match coming, this match is to send a message to the House of Black! Will the Butcher, the Blade and Marq Quen be examples to Malakai and his henchmen?
The trios sort out and we start with Blade and Penta Oscuro! Fans rally up as the two circle. Penta and Blade feel things out, but then Penta tells him, “Listen! CERO!

Tag to Pac, the Lucha Bros DOUBLE TOPE onto Butcher and Blade! Pac shoots the BLACK ARROW!! Cover, Death Triangle wins!!
Winners: Death Triangle, by pinfall
Kyle applauds, but reluctantly. Will the Undisputed Elite have another semifinalist after Kyle tears down the Firebird? Or will it be all on Adam Cole to win the Owen Hart Cup?
But then the lights go out! And when they come back up, the House of Black has appeared! Brody King and Buddy Matthews are on corners while Malakai himself stares Pac down. The lights go out again, and then the House of Black is gone. Will Fenix be able to focus with the shadows closing in?
Shawn Spears VS Bear Boulder!
The Chair Man claims he will be the Giant Killer as he stands between Wardlow and MJF. But will Spears also be a Bear Killer along the way? Or will Boulder roll over and squash him?
The bell rings and Boulder steps up to Spears. They stare down, and Spears winds it up, “TEN!” Spears grins, but Boulder choke grips him! Boulder trophy lifts Spears and he freaks out! Boulder lifts but Spears slips off, ducks and dodges, but the crossbody is caught! Boulder gets the fans to fire up before the POWERSLAM! Boulder roars and fans fire up as he runs in at the corner.

Backstage interview with Tony Nese & Mark Sterling.
Lexi Nair says it was announced that these two face #Hookhausen in Las Vegas for the Double or Nothing Buy-In, but Sterling says that is not happening. Sterling is a lawyer who is just here to dot the I’s and cross the T’s, he doesn’t even own a pair of tights! The tag match is not happening. Well, management says if Sterling puts his hands on another wrestler… Put his hands? He didn’t do that! Wardlow did this to him! Sorry, this isn’t happening. But Nese says it is fine. He destroyed Danhausen in record time! And then Hook wants to ruin the celebration? To ruin Nese’s homecoming? No, no, that’s not happening.
So Nese says it is just fine. He is the Premier Athlete. He can beat them both by himself! When they get to Vegas, Sterling can put 10K on them! Wow, that’s a lot. Is Nese going to win that back in spades? Or will #Hookhausen choke Nese out and then curse him?
Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Opening Round: Riho VS Ruby Soho!
Toni Storm won her spot in the semifinals on Dynamite, and awaits the winner of Britt Baker VS the joker! But on the other side of the bracket, it’s the inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion VS The Runaway! Who takes that first step towards the cup?

Rampage returns and Riho runs in at the corner to KNEE Ruby right in the chest! Then NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO! Fans fire up and Riho goes up top. Ruby ROCKS Riho first!

And the Runaway puts this one away! But who meets Ruby in the semifinals? There’s a bit more on that in just a moment!
Gunn Club and The Acclaimed have a team meeting.
Billy Gunn says that now that they’re all together, as a faction if you will, something Billy knows a lot about, he feels this could be one of the best of all time. But they’re missing something. They need… hand gestures! Austin raises his hand and wants “father” to call on him. Okay, Austin. He and Colten have the perfect gesture. They’ll raise their hands, and point straight to- NO. It’s been done. Anthony Bowens raises his hand, Billy calls on him, and he asks, “How about this?” He and Max Caster scissor fingers. That’s great! There it is! But now… A catchphrase! “Daddy!” He and Colten have one! “We’ve got two words-” NO!! Just… stop. That will never get over.
The Acclaimed have an idea. What about, “Yo, listen!” Brilliant! Nice work. And now, Billy wants them to know that he’s used some of his pull and he got them a match. Really? Is it on Dynamite? Rampage? Double or Nothing? No. On Elevation! Caster has a spit take. That’s AWESOME! They all finger scissor, but will this 8 Man Tag turn out well for the… Uh, whatever the faction’s called.
Tony Schiavone is in the ring!
He welcomes out the AEW TBS Champion and her crew, it’s The Baddies! The still undefeated 30-0, Jade Cargill, struts out with Kiera Hogan and Red Velvet, and a limping Mark Sterling. Next week, on another special early Rampage, Red Velvet has her Owen Hart Cup quarterfinal match, but who against? Schiavone gives the mic to Jade and she tells him to cut the sh*t. And cameraman, do your job and get the Long Island Baddies. The cameraman finds the Baddies Section in the crowd and they wave hi to Jade. Schiavone says he sadly cannot cut anything, as he must inform us that AEW has not cleared Hikaru Shida after that Philly Street Fight.
Jade takes the mic back to say, “I don’t think that’s bad news at all. I think that’s great news. But uh, what happened to you?” Mark Sterling wants to explain but she says no one cares. He just needs to tell the people the Baddies’ business. Sterling says it is his opinion that Velvet should just win by forfeit and advance in the tournament. Schiavone says that is not happening. Tony Khan has found a replacement for the match. Velvet’s new opponent will be a long time “friend” in… KRIS STATLANDER! A new attitude in Velvet, a new attitude in Statlander! Who is moving on to meet Ruby Soho in the Owen Hart Cup?
Rampage returns and Mark Henry talks with our main eventers.
The World Strongest Man welcomes us back, and notes that Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian were the original AEW World Tag Team Champions. Scorpio, are you ready to defend the TNT Championship against his former partner? Ethan Page says that that is a stupid question! The champ is always ready! The real question should be, why is Kaz getting a shot in the first place? Scorpio says it’s because he gave Kaz his word. Dan Lambert adds, “And…?” And the word of the AEW TNT Champion is going to mean something from now on. They’ve been over this!
Kaz tells Ethan and Lambert that he doesn’t remember Mark Henry asking those two a damn thing. As for Scorpio, he and Kaz were winning titles long before the “Yes Men of the Year,” or even before AEW. And last time they checked, this is just Scorpio VS Kaz 1v1. Right, says the guy who has no friends in this company. Scorpio tells Lambert and Ethan that when he said he’s going to put respect back on the name of the TNT title, he meant it! And it starts tonight! So Lambert and Ethan can take the night off. Fine. They leave, and Scorpio says HE is the Face of TNT, so get used to it. Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event!
AEW TNT Championship: Scorpio Sky w/ Ethan Page & Dan Lambert VS Frankie Kazarian!
SoCal Uncensored, SCU, were the inaugural AEW World Tag Team Champions. But things have changed since the early days of AEW, and it’s certainly gone more The Closer’s way than the Heavy Metal Rebel’s. But will this battle of friends be where Kaz finally tastes gold again? Or will it be clear who was the stronger half of that tag team?
Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti are spotted in the crowd, sporting their newly won AAA Mixed Tag Team Championships. The introductions for this match are made, and AEW TNT title is raised, and we S C who is the true Face of TNT!
Scorpio and Kaz circle as fans chant for “S C U! S C U!” Scorpio and Kaz nod, shake hands, and then tie up. They go around, end up on ropes then in corners then back on ropes. The ref counts the ropebreak and the two separate. Fans rally up as the two go again. They tie up, Kaz fireman’s carry takeovers for a top wristlock. Scorpio fights up, gets to ropes and flips through to wrench back. Kaz endures the wristlock, uses ropes to flip through and wrench to a headlock. Scorpio powers out but Kaz runs him over! Cover, ONE, and Scorpio scrambles away. Fans rally, the two reset, and they tie up again.
Scorpio waistlocks, Kaz pries free to switch. Scorpio bucks the O’Conner, but Kaz hurdles. Scorpio avoids the monkey flip but not the hip toss! Kaz drops down for a short arm scissor! Scorpio moves around, endures, rolls back to make this a cover, TWO as Kaz throws Scorpio back down! Scorpio endures again, rolls back again, cover, TWO again! Scorpio gets free, but Kaz reverses the whip, only to leap into a fireman’s carry! Kaz slips off, but Scorpio throws Kaz off the chicken wing! Kaz rebounds, things speed up again, and they COLLIDE, head to head! Fans fire up while both men are down and a standing count begins!
Kaz and Scorpio slowly get up, Scorpio kicks low and whips. Body shot and RUS- NO! Kaz turns leg sweep into backslide, TWO! Kaz kicks, but Scorpio blocks the suplex! Fans rally as they fight for control, and Kaz CLUBS away on Scorpio’s back! Then he FISHERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO! Kaz nods as fans rally and Scorpio gets up. Kaz rushes in but is sent out! Scorpio builds speed to FLY! Direct hit at the ramp! Fans fire up while both men are down and Rampage goes picture in picture!
Scorpio gets up, he checks his back, then he drags Kaz up. Scorpio puts Kaz in the ring, hurries after him, and he brings Kaz up to hit a BACKBREAKER! Kaz writhes but Scorpio sits him up for a chinlock. Kaz endures the knee in his back, fights his way up, but Scorpio CLUBS him in the back. Scorpio gets the arms but Kaz gets a victory roll, TWO! Kaz whips, Scorpio reverses and reels Kaz in for a cobra twist! Kaz endures all over again, even as Scorpio grabs for a leg! Scorpio gets the leg for a partial Bow ‘n’ Arrow, but Kaz uses that to hip toss free! Fans rally as both men slowly get up and go to opposite corners.
Kaz storms over but Scorpio elbows him away! And then DOUBLE STOMPS Kaz on the back! Scorpio drops an ax handle, then pushes Kaz to a cover! TWO, and Scorpio is a little annoyed. Scorpio facelocks and grinds Kaz down but Kaz endures. Kaz fights up, pries at the hold, and wrenches it open! Kaz hits an ELBOW BREAKER, but Scorpio ROCKS Kaz! Scorpio has Kaz in the corner for haymakers as Rampage returns to single picture. Scorpio whips corner to corner, runs in, but into an elbow! Kaz slips out, ducks and swings, but he GUILLOTINE LEG DROPS Scorpio down! Then SLINGSHOT to the Oklahoma Roll, TWO!
Kaz sobats, knees and LARIATS! Kaz fires up and Long Island fires up, too! Kaz whips, Scorpio KICKS back! Both men stagger, Scorpio runs but Kaz CLOBBERS him! Kaz runs, springboards, but Scorpio Electric Chair Lifts! To the fireman’s carry! TK- NO! Cradle counter, TWO!!! Kaz scoops to SLAM! Then springboard, LEG DROP! Kaz gets all fired up but he remembers to cover, TWO! Kaz drags Scorpio up, but Scorpio fights the crossface! JAWBREAKER! Kaz staggers, Scorpio runs in but is put on the apron! Scorpio ducks, fakes the guillotine out, then catches his breath, but Kaz SLINGSHOT CUTTERS!! Cover, TWO!?!
Fans are thunderous and hope these two “Fight Forever!” But it has to end somehow, and Kaz hurries to get the chicken wing! Scorpio fights the crossface again, snapmares free, but gets caught again! Scorpio arm-drags but Kaz is clamped on! Scorpio keeps trying, fading as he fights! Scorpio pushes off the corner but Kaz swings him around! Dan Lambert appears? He distracts the ref, Scorpio is FADING! Ethan gets in with the TNT title! Ethan CLOBBERS Kaz!! Scorpio ends up on top as a cover, TWO!?!? Kaz survives the American Top Team screw job! Scorpio and Kaz sputter and rise, Scorpio gets the fireman’s carry! T K O!! Cover, Scorpio wins!
Winner: Scorpio Sky, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)
The Closer closes it out, but he didn’t even know what happened behind his back! Scorpio applauds for Kaz and wants Long Island to join in, but Kaz is pissed and so are the fans! Kaz points it out, Ethan and Lambert had something to do with this! Scorpio asks them if that’s true but they say not to trust Kaz! Fans chant for “S C U!” and Scorpio confronts Ethan! “YEAH, I DID IT, SKY! I DID IT FOR THE TEAM! I DID IT FOR YOU! SO WHICH FRICKIN’ TEAM ARE YOU ON?” Scorpio glares at Ethan, but then CLOBBERS Kaz?!?! Lambert says, “I love it when a plan comes together!” Was Sammy Guevara right all along?!
Lambert even confronts Sammy and his “whore house,” but Sammy gets a chair and rushes in! The Spanish God rushes the American Top Team off, but the damage has been done! RIP SCU once and for all, but will the Heavy Metal Rebel come back for revenge alongside Sammy of all people?
A great episode for AEW, and a great opening Six Man Tag. Death Triangle of course gets the win, and House of Black of course puts them on notice. That Six Man Tag is coming, probably at Double or Nothing as Fenix might end up losing to Kyle in the Owen Hart tournament. And that’s still pretty great for the feud, as a PPV blow-off will be more final than something on Dynamite. Spears VS Boulder was good stuff but it was clear Spears was going to win. I really hope the steel cage match with MJF as guest ref is so one-sided it just makes MJF look like the jackass he is. I mean, we know we’re getting MJF VS Wardlow at Double or Nothing, so why not?
Riho VS Soho was great stuff, but it felt a bit clear that Ruby was winning. I’m still betting on Britt making it to the finals and Ruby would be the logical choice to face her. A shame about Hikaru Shida not being able to compete, but what a great opportunity for Kris Statlander. We got a good promo from The Baddies to set it up, and Statlander VS Velvet is going to be great stuff. But with Ruby as a Face, I’m thinking Velvet finds a way to win for the classic Face VS Heel in the semifinals. Plus, it’d be very Heel of Velvet to have her new friends cheat for her.
Gunn Club and The Acclaimed had a hilarious segment together, and of course the Sons of Gunn could only think back to Degeneration X and Billy was shooting down those ideas. Given how Billy was favoring Caster & Bowens, I feel like the entire group is going to end up called “The Acclaimed” as he continues to favor them over his own sons. Then we got a great main event out of Scorpio VS Kaz. While I don’t really agree with the swerve they gave us, they did orchestrate it masterfully. We’re still getting a great tag match, but I would’ve preferred an SCU reunion VS Ethan and Sammy as a literal All Ego team, but seems AEW will insist on their plans, the same as WWE.
My Score: 8.5/10

Jon Moxley speaks.
“Y’know, I was thinking. Since y’all’re coming at me with your ‘interim’ just about every two seconds, and we already have the FTW belt, just for fun, what if we called this the FYI belt? Just an idea. This was forged in Cincinnati, Ohio, in Piccadilly. And just like the famed Hart Dungeon in Calgary, this championship is about pain and how much you can endure. For over two decades, we have watched the last survivor of the Dungeon, ‘Lionheart’ Chris Jericho, and we have watched his fighting spirit on full display. Tonight, I’m going to test it. And I am going to push it to its breaking point. And Chris, if your fighting sprit doesn’t break, your body will.”
Chris Jericho responds!
“After two and a half years, tonight, Chris Jericho takes back what’s rightfully his. Tonight, I will become the new AEW World Champion! I’m gonna beat ya, Moxley, and I’m gonna tell ya why. You wanted to face Lionheart Chris Jericho. You wanted to face the last survivor of Stu Hart’s Dungeon. Well be careful what you wish for, Mox! Cuz Stu wasn’t some kind of loveable old man, no. He was vicious! He was violent! He was a sadist! And the pain he put me through is something I never wanted to think about again. Until tonight.
“You talk about painting the canvas red with blood and scattering teeth across the ring. Well you can fix a tooth. You can heal a cut. But what I’m gonna do to you isn’t so easily fixable. I’m gonna twist you, Mox. I’m gonna turn you, and wrench the sh*t outta you tonight! I was the first AEW World Champion, and tonight, Lionheart Chris Jericho, the last survivor of Stu Hart’s Dungeon, will be the NEXT AEW World Champion! I guaran-effing-tee it!!”
Next week, the AEW World Trios Championship Tournament begins!
Culminating with the final at All Out on September 4th, 2022, the opening round will be: Death Triangle VS Will Ospreay & Aussie Open! The House of Black VS The Dark Order! Best Friends VS The Trustbusters! And La Faccion Ingobernable, now adding DRAGON LEE to the team, against the Young Bucks, and whoever they choose to join them. But who will that be?

There was no saving Fenix & Penta from tranquilo! Will adding Dragon Lee only make LFI even more dangerous in the coming Trios Championship tournament?
The Young Bucks are on the Cutler Cam.
Matt & Nick Jackson have Brandon Cutler follow them because they need to get this on tape. The Bucks visit the Dark Order and Hangman Page. Sorry to barge in, but they mean no disrespect. They just wanted this on camera. John Silver says that’s fine, they have a BTE bit to film later anyway. Evil Uno asks Hangman and the Bucks if the rest of them should step out for this. No, no, it’s fine. The Bucks want the whole world to know this: They thank Hangman for saving them last week when he didn’t have to. Word on the street is, The Undisputed Elite are going to be around for a long time, and Hangman didn’t have to run them off.
The world has seen how the Bucks have treated Hangman, from what they’ve said to what they’ve done. They’re not proud of that and would take it all back if they could. So, Matt has been thinking and reminiscing. His favorite, most fun time of his career was when the three of them and The Elite were together, runnin’ and gunnin’ and doing this. They were building the revolution that became AEW. The friendship, the camaraderie, but then after AEW became a reality, things just got really weird. Matt knows Hangman felt that, too. Maybe it was the money, the TV time, the fame, but the Bucks got weird and selfish and if they could take it all back, they would.
So Matt just wants to say he is sorry. He means it. And… They’re here in this building, the very building Hangman won the AEW World Championship. Matt stood from afar and was so proud of Hangman, but he couldn’t even man up and say it! Hangman became a superstar! He wasn’t that other guy in The Elite, he WAS the Elite that night. Matt is so proud of Hangman, and wished he had enjoyed the journey over the destination. They can never get that time back. And Matt isn’t sure who he is anymore. He looks in the mirror and wonders if the internet trolls are right that he and Nick are awful. Maybe those people are on to something! Maybe they’re bad people.
But Matt knows one thing: when they’re around Hangman, he brings out the good in them. That is why Cutler’s camera is right here. The Bucks want to ask Hangman here and now: Will he be their third man in the trios tournament? The Hung Bucks can take on anyone! What does Hangman say? Huh? One last time! Hangman knew this would happen. He’d love to, guys, but he can’t. He knows Matt just said he was so proud of Hangman winning the world title and all that, but… The Bucks didn’t, The Dark Order did. These guys have been there for Hangman for those years The Bucks weren’t.
And in this AEW World Trios Championship tournament, Hangman feels this is The Dark Order’s chance. He feels he should have their backs the way they’ve always had his. He won’t be in the tournament at all, the Dark Order guys will be the team. So Hangman can’t be in their corner and in the Bucks’ corner at the same time. Hangman is sorry, but the Bucks get that. Hangman does know the Bucks should find someone who would never turn their backs on them. The Bucks get that. It’s fine. They can talk later. Good luck, Dark Order! Cutler asks The Bucks if they think Hangman meant him for the tournament. SHUT UP, BRANDON!
Jungle Boy is here!
Fans swing their arms and sing along while the pyro goes off! Jungle Jack is joining commentary for this one, but he doesn’t feel it’ll be that long. Because it’s LUCHASAURUS!
Luchasaurus VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake!
Jurassic Express is united, but JB is letting the wrestling dinosaur run his own course. Will Luchasaurus go all Godzilla on one half of the Workhorsemen?

Luchasaurus hauls Henry back up, for the FOSSILIZER! Cover, Luchasaurus wins!
Winner: Luchasaurus, by pinfall
JB knew he wouldn’t be here long. But wait, Christian Cage is applauding from the back. “Impressive win, Luchasaurus. Now, Jungle Boy, I was gonna go out there and rip that headset off your head and slap the s*it outta you, right here, right now, but I decided the people of Minneapolis, they don’t deserve to see me in person.” JB throws off the headset as Christian says he is having way too much fun- OH NO! JB found Christian but security stops him from tearing into Christian! Captain Charisma runs off, Luchasaurus CLOBBERS the security! CHOKE SLAM onto a trunk! AEW producer Pat Buck rushes in, but gets a HEADBUTT for it!
JB tells Luchasaurus to take it easy, and make sure Pat’s okay. JB goes off to hunt down Christian, will he finally get his hands on the sleazy legend?
“Malakai. You’ve put me through changes, dragged me into the dark, but then I saw Hell was empty. Because all the devils are here.” Julia Hart walks over?! She tells Miro, “Embrace the gift. Give into it like I did.” Miro removes Julia’s hand from his face, and says there is only one woman who can touch The Redeemer, and Julia is not her. Tell the Pagans that he accepts their gift, and that he will own it so that he may use it to destroy them. “My warpath to my God is clear now. And it leads directly through The House of Black. These are the words of the Redeemer!” Will Miro join Sting and Darby in their fight against Malakai and his minions? Or is he going to destroy them on his own?
Backstage interview with “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs.
Mark Henry asks Hobbs if it is safe to assume, that after what happened last week, that he is done with Ricky Starks? Hobbs chuckles, but before he can answer, QT Marshall & The Factory walk over. QT tells Mark that this isn’t Will Hobbs, it’s POWERHOUSE Hobbs. And is he done with Starks? Hobbs left some crumbs, but tonight, Aaron Solo and The Factory sprinkles those crumbs around like parmesan cheese on mama’s spaghetti. And Hobbs doesn’t need to worry about a guy like Starks. Look at him! QT sees a world title in Hobbs’ future. The Factory can handle Starks, “because nobody says no to The Factory.”
Hobbs tells QT, “Don’t let your problem become mine.” Hobbs then leaves and Mark looks to QT. Will The Factory take Hobbs’ warning seriously? Will Starks make an absolute fool out of QT when he takes on Solo tonight?
Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh are here!
They go to the ring, all fired up and dressed to the nines. Sonjay gets a mic to say he’s on a high! Did the fans see Battle of the Belts last Saturday? They did to Wardlow the unthinkable. “Nobody has done to Wardlow what we did last Saturday night. Satnam Singh, One in a Billion, 7’4″, he choke slammed Wardlow right through a table! Wardlow was like 20 feet high up in the air!” Satnam rocks! But Wardlow, you may think that they’re done with you, but they’re not done by a long shot! Lethal gets the mic to say that last Saturday, they sent a message. The message is A) Defend the TNT Championship against Lethal one more time, or B) they come find him and just take the title!
Fans chant for “WARD~LOW!” and wouldn’t you know? Here comes Wardlow! Wardlow says Lethal wants another shot? Then he’s got it! But for tonight, eh whoops all three of their asses! And wait! Following behind are the TOP GUYS! F T R!! Fans are fired up for Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood, draped in gold from ROH, NJPW and AAA! This unofficial Pinnacle reunion storms its way to the ring, so Lethal and his boys bail out! Sonjay looks for something under the ring, but there’s nothing good. Cash dares someone to get in the ring, but Lethal’s group flanks them. Lethal rushes in, but Wardlow blocks hi and ROCKS him, into the BIG RIG!
Lethal bails back out and Sonjay checks on him. Lethal’s crew retreats for now, will Wardlow and FTR stay Top Guys in AEW?
Backstage interview with the Jericho Appreciation Society.
Tony Schiavone is with Daniel Garcia, Angelo Parker, Matt Menard and Anna “Jay AS” but Parker has him shush. Menard says he can feel it! The world can feel it! Daddy Magic’s lucky red jacket is here, and history will be made tonight! Moxley, it’s been a hell of a run, but it comes to an end TONIGHT! Because tonight is the Jericho Championship Appreciation Party! Did you see the spread?! There’s hors d’oeuvres, amuse-bouche, even a fondue fountain! And Schiavone, you are NOT invited! But best yet, they’ve got A Little Bit o’ the Bubbly! It’s time for the AEW Galaxy to APPRECIATE US!
And while talking about appreciation, you know who should appreciate Garcia? Bryan Danielson. Bryan got another paid vacation with his family and that garden. Garcia put Bryan to sleep and owns him now. He is the Dragonslayer! Anna then shouts at a random stage hand and says if they don’t believe Garcia is the Dragonslayer, she’s gonna choke them out!! And then she does!! Will the JAS be celebrating with Le Champion after tonight’s main event?
Ricky Starks VS Aaron Solo w/ The Factory!
The Absolute may be without his FTW Championship and without Team Taz, but he is not about to pay for protection or join up with QT Marshall’s mockery of a mafia. Will Starks prove to his other former tag partner that he’s still a dangerous man? Or will Solo show him the power of The Factory?
Solo rushes Starks the second he’s in the ring but Starks dodges! The bell rings and Starks fires off hands with Solo! Fans fire up but Solo ROCKS Starks. Solo whips Starks to a corner but Starks comes back to CLOBBER Solo! Starks then dodges Solo to back drop him, and strike his pose! Fans fire up, and Starks whips Solo. Solo reverses, Cole Karter trips Starks up, and Solo CLOBBERS Starks! But the ref saw that and EJECTS Karter! So much for his two dimes in this match. Solo is mad and he storms up on Starks but Starks CHOPS him! Solo ROCKS Starks, fires off hands in the corner, then stomps a mudhole in.
The ref counts, Solo lets off at 4, and he talks trash on Starks while fans rally behind Starks. Solo stands Starks up, throws hands and then SLAPS Starks! Solo grins but Starks scowls. Solo and Starks clinch, Starks shoves Solo away and the hands start flying! Starks ROCKS Solo again and again then whips, but Solo reverses. Starks JAWBREAKERS, then dodges Solo to TORNADO DDT! Fans fire up and Starks runs to BOOT Solo! Starks reels Solo in, strikes his pose, and underhooks to lift, but Solo RANAS free! Solo kicks but Starks blocks and side steps, then ducks the Screw High Kick to SPEAR Solo on the return!! Cover, Starks wins!
Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall
That was an absolutely exciting finish to the match! QT sends the Freak Beast to the ring, with a chair! Starks sees him coming, dodges that chair shot, and hits a SPINEBUSTER! Starks calls out Hobs with that one! And then he underhooks Comoroto, only for Solo to CLOBBER Starks from behind! Comoroto gets the chair back, but Starks sends Solo into Comoroto! Starks bails, but he sees QT and Ogogo storming down the ramp! Starks goes up and over the railing, QT tumbles as he tries to follow, and Starks gets away! Hobbs is in the back, and he rips the TV off the mount and slams it down! Powerhouse is pissed that Starks survives, will he have to handle Starks himself?
Backstage interview with Gunn Club.
Billy is telling his boys to toughen up, but Lexi Nair asks them about how they’re feeling after the Dumpster Match loss. Funny she should bring that up, because they were just going over that. Billy was trying to figure out how, in one night, these two could RUIN the only match Billy made famous! This is what makes Billy miss The Acclaimed. But wait, Stokely Hathaway walks in? He tells “Grandpa Ass” that it’s time to go to bed, it’s after 8 PM! They’ve got some Ensure in catering, maybe Billy can go get himself a bottle. As for the Gunn boys, they can start taking their careers a little more seriously.
Billy grabs the card away from Stokely. “The jokes are old and funny, but you’re about to have a really bad day.” Stokely says alright, that’s fine. Stokely leaves, and Billy says to make it up to Austin & Colten, they have a match for Rampage. But then Danhausen walks in! He and “the big bearded fellow” will see the Ass Boys this Friday. Don’t touch them! Get away. Who is Danhausen talking about for his tag team partner? Trent?
Backstage interview with Best Friends.
Speaking of Trent, Schiavone is with Trent, Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy because they had something they wanted to show everyone. Cassidy high-fives Trent and Chuck, is this what he was talking about? But then the Trustbusters, Ari Daivari, Slim J & Parker Bourdeaux, walk over. Ari has Slim J get the mic to hold it for him. Ari says he’s been trying to get a hold of Cassidy all week! But Cassidy hasn’t answered any of Ari’s texts, calls or emails! Now that the trust has kicked in, Ari is investing in the best talent in AEW. He wants to bring Cassidy to superstardom, and all he’s gotta do is ditch the morons right here!
Whoa, whoa, whoa. Cassidy doesn’t know what Ari’s talking about, but whatever his question is, the answer is no. Trent & Chuck back him up. Is that it? The final answer is no? Alright, that’s fine. They’ll learn first hand what happens to people who say know to Daivari Dinero! Will the Trustbusters beat the Best Friends right out of the AEW World Trios Championship Tournament? Or will it be more like the other way around?

Jericho doesn’t bother being frustrated with Moxley’s toughness, he just goes outside to YANK Moxley into the post! And SLAM the legs against the steel! The ref reprimands but Jericho SLAMS the legs into the post again! Jericho then ties those legs up, shouts out The Hitman with the HANGING FIGURE FOUR!! The ref counts, Jericho lets go at 4! Moxley crawls and hobbles away but Jericho stalks him. Moxley catches the haymaker into a FUJIWARA, then the CROSSFACE! Jericho endures but Moxley pulls him way back! Jericho fights, but Moxley just keeps pulling back! Jericho pries at the hands, clubs at them, then rolls through to get the legs!
Moxley fights but Jericho works to turn him over! Fans fire up as Jericho keeps trying, WALLS OF JERICHO!! Jericho sits deep on the hold but Moxley endures! Fans are thunderous and dueling, and Moxley is fading! Moxley stays conscious as AEW goes picture in picture!
Moxley pushes up, fades again, but he gets a second wind! Moxley pushes up, crawls on his elbows through the bloodstains he himself has left on this mat, but his body starts giving out again! Jericho keeps sitting on the hold, but Moxley flips him off! Moxley fights forward again, manages to tuck and roll, and he throws haymakers from below! Jericho stomps Moxley in return! And then turns him again, back into the WALLS!! Moxley endures and fans are thunderous! Moxley keeps fighting, this is maybe his third or fourth wind, but he’s still so far from the ropes! AEW returns to single picture as Jericho shouts for Moxley to just quit!
Moxley crawls, and claws, and scratches, and reaches the ROPEBREAK! Jericho lets off, and he again argues with the ref that he won! Bu the didn’t, that was the ropebreak! Jericho stomps away on Moxley in frustration, then lets off as he tries to think what he has to do. Moxley stands, Jericho TRIANGLE JUMPS but Moxley tosses him to the floor! Moxley gets back in the ring, hobbles with his bad back and massive blood loss, and he gets up the corner! SUPER DIVING AX HANDLES! Then a ground ‘n’ pound at the ramp!! Fans fire up as Moxley just fires off! Moxley drags Jericho up, “This is Awesome!” as this returns to the ring.
Moxley climbs the corner again, leaps, into a CODE BREAKER!! Jericho shoots Moxley down, covers him, TWO!!! Even after everything, Moxley is still in this! Jericho stands and Moxley sits up, and Moxley eggs Jericho on! So Jericho BOOTS him down! Jericho rains down fists on Moxley, tells him to stay down, then he rips off a buckle pad! The ref reprimands and tries to fix that one, but Jericho just rips off another one! Again, the ref reprimands and tries to fix the buckle pad, but Jericho calls to someone. Someone tosses Floyd the Baseball Bat in, but WAY over Jericho’s head! Sammy Guevara’s in the crowd and realizes how bad he did.
Jericho chases to get Floyd, then rushes in to CLOBBER Moxley! The ref was too busy with buckle pads to see it! Cover, TWO!?!? Moxley survives the Sammy screw job?! Jericho gets the legs, but Moxley makes it a cradle, TWO! Jericho swings, into a SLEEPER!! Moxley squeezes tight, Jericho claws at the hold, but pushes Moxley into bare steel!! Moxley staggers into the JUDAS EFFECT!! Jericho crawls to the cover, TWO!?!?! Moxley survives the unstoppable Judas Effect elbow!! No one can believe it and Jericho is furious! Fans hope they “Fight Forever!” but this has to end somehow!
Jericho hurries outside, he grabs the AEW title belt, and brings it into the ring. The ref tries to stop him but Jericho just pushes past and swings on Moxley! Moxley avoids the belt shot to send Jericho into bare steel! Jericho tastes karma, and then the SLEEPER!! Jericho is fading as Moxley squeezes him into the BULLY CHOKE! Moxley rains down elbows and fists, then cranks the hold! But Jericho slips out and rains down elbows of his own! And then, LIONTAMER!!! Moxley endures Jericho’s original submission hold, but Moxley turns it around and drags Jericho down! Moxley rains down forearms to the back of Jericho’s head before the SLEEPER!!
Jericho endures, but he is bleeding from the buckle shot! Moxley traps Jericho’s arm and legs with the body scissors, fans are thunderous as Jericho keeps reaching out, BUT JERICHO TAPS!! Moxley wins!!
Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission (still Interim AEW World Champion)
Lionheart fought his heart out, and did bring out quite a few tricks in his book, but Moxley still holds onto the title! But wait, here comes Sammy and Jake Hager! They CLOBBER Moxley and stomp him down! Fans boo as Jericho’s most faithful lieutenants mug Moxley! But wait, here comes the Blackpool Combat Club, as well as Ortiz and Eddie Kingston! Claudio Castagnoli CLOBBERS Sammy, Ortiz CLOBBERS Jericho, then Claudio hands Sammy off to Yuta so that he and Kingston can go after Hager and Jericho! Fans are thunderous, the bell is ringing, the rest of the JAS rush out! Parker, Menard and Garcia go after the BCC, they have the numbers advantage!
Jericho grabs the AEW world title, Menard sets Moxley up, but wait!! C M PUNK is here!!! The Best in the World storms out to the ring, he CLOBBERS Parker, DECKS Garcia, then dodges Sammy to RAM him into steel steps! Punk dumps Hager out, dodges the belt shot and DECKS Jericho! And again! And then Punk clotheslines Jericho up and out! Fans are electric as Punk storms around, but Moxley grabs the AEW title belt. And even with everything that just happened, it is clear that the question is now: Who is THE AEW World Champion? Punk and Moxley stare down and fans lose their minds! Moxley flips Punk off, then bumps him on the way out!
Will Moxley prove HE is the Best in the World? Or will Punk, now 100%, go all out to prove that he is the UNDISPUTED AEW World Champion?
This was another awesome event for AEW, though they didn’t do much in the way to put a theme on this. “Quake by the Lake” was a clever name but they didn’t have props to fit the theme, like camping tents or a campfire. But anyway, the Coffin match was a great opener, though I should’ve known the House of Black would get involved. Great to see Buddy is back, and great use of the lights going out to sneak Sting into the coffin. Sting VS Malakai is coming, but I wonder if they’re going to have Miro join Sting and Darby in a brutal Six Man Tag of some kind after that promo he had. Miro says as much that he’s not joining the House of Black, so that’d be a logical move to me.
I really like the bracket we’re getting for the AEW World Trios Championship Tournament. Really good interaction between Best Friends and Trustbusters to set up matches for Rampage and to give some heat to their match in the opening round. I would think Best Friends win in the tournament, as I see Parker Boudreaux beating Sonny Kiss, and Ari Daivari possibly cheating to beat Cassidy. And great to see that NJPW is sending the United Empire’s Ospreay & Aussie Open, though I don’t see them getting through Death Triangle. After that awesome Tornado Tag where LFI wins, I think they get through the Bucks and their mystery third man.
Speaking of which, great promo from Bucks, Hangman and Dark Order. This all fits within Hangman’s larger story perfectly. He can’t just go back to the guys who left him out in the cold, but he is at least back out of the tournament entirely to let whatever three of the Dark Order try to win. I have a feeling the Bucks will have no choice but to use Cutler, and then Cutler takes the lose to LFI. LFI and Death Triangle then meet in the semifinals for an awesome 3v3 version of what we got tonight. And who knows who they face in the finals, but it’ll be an awesome match at All Out. Personally, would love if it comes down to Best Friends VS Death Triangle, I still want that feud to start again.
Great squash match win for Luchasaurus, and great brawl backstage. Christian of course avoids the fight, and Luchasaurus might get (kayfabe) fined and/or suspended for headbutting Pat Buck. What is it about Pat Buck that he gets beat up by talent? Great little bit from Lethal’s group and then Wardlow and FTR. Wardlow VS Lethal 2 is going to be great, not sure if there will be a Six Man Tag as the go-home to it, because it’s so obvious Sonjay would take the loss on that one. At some point, some team from somewhere has to beat FTR for one of those three titles they hold, and I feel like it’ll be a team from AAA to get those AAA belts since FTR has had those the longest.
Good little promo from Thunder Rosa & Toni Storm getting to the tension Britt Baker was bringing up. That title match could definitely be part of All Out, but I wonder if Britt tries to take the #1 contender spot in the last few weeks before then. Good interaction from Hobbs and The Factory, but QT is making it a little too obvious they’re just copying Tony D’Angelo from NXT. Great match from Starks and Solo, and Starks makes The Factory all look like dorks. Hobbs is mad, but we know Hobbs and Starks are going to have it out between now and All Out. Good stuff from Gunn Club and Danhausen, #Beardhausen is going to be a really fun team for Rampage.
Really good match from the TBS Championship, but I will say like I did for Rampage last week, Madison Rayne doesn’t actually seem that exciting or skilled of a wrestler. She’s somehow become a multiple time champion, but nothing about what we got out of her and Jade really thrilled me. And even then, we all knew Jade was winning. But a great little ambush from Athena, I really hope Athena gets the match for All Out, and I also hope Athena gets the title. Jade’s already set an incredible bar for a singles champion in AEW, and even if she loses at All Out, Jade can easily pivot to the world title to finish out 2022.
Great group promo from the JAS to hype up the main event as well as their own stuff, and I love that we’re getting 2 outta 3 falls for Garcia VS Bryan. Awesome main event for the title, practically PPV worthy, and of course there was blood. But WOW, ripping out the earring. A little disappointing but of course Jericho cheats with help from the JAS, but in the end, Moxley still wins. Great brawl and great return from CM Punk, was not expecting him so soon. But that means they’re going to set up Punk VS Moxley for the title at All Out because duh, it’s in Chicago again. No offense to Chicago, but one day, All Out should be somewhere else. But hey, they’re getting their hometown hero there, no idea if he wins to be Undisputed AEW World Champion or not.
My Score: 9.1/10
Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (8/9/22)
Best Friends get Dark!
Before entering the AEW Trios Championship Tournament, Best Friends are in action, in separate matches! Will tonight’s Dark be Freshly Squeezed?
- 8 Man Tag: Private Party, The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny VS Isaiah Broner, Brayden Lee, James Alexander & Sam Moore; Private Party, Butcher & Blade win.
- Anna “Jay A.S.” w/ The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Megan Meyers; Anna wins.
- Best Friends w/ Danhausen VS Rohit Raju & Ren Jones; Best Friends win.
- Evil Uno & Preston Vance VS Peter Avalon & JD Drake; Uno & Vance win.
- Marina Shafir & Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero VS Heather Reckless & Joseline Navarro; Shafir & Nyla win.
- Kris Statlander VS Sierra; Statlander wins.
- Six Man Tag: The Trustbusters VS Sonny Kiss, Zack Clayton & Xavier Walker; The Trustbusters win.
- Six Woman Tag: Ruby Soho, Athena & Hikaru Shida VS Serena Deeb, Leva Bates & Emi Sakura; Soho, Athena & Shida win.
- Orange Cassidy VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake; Cassidy wins.
So it seems Ari Daivari, Parker Boudreaux & Slim J are a trio now under The Trustbusters name. Good to see Sonny Kiss back in action but Kiss, Clayton & Walker aren’t winning that one. And I’m still wondering if The Wingmen are really a thing with JD Drake also spending time with Anthony Henry as the Workhorsemen. For that matter, why wasn’t it Best Friends VS The Wingmen in a 3v3? Or are they going to use that as an easy win in the opening round of the AEW Trios Championship Tournament?
