#KillerKyle survives and now he’ll be facing The Maniac in the main event! Speaking of which…

Moxley speaks backstage!

“For three years, I’ve been big game hunting in NJPW. For three years, I’ve been blazing a trail with AEW. And it’s funny how things work out. It’s been a weird year, it’s been a strange year. It hasn’t been easy. More than people know. But I told you in January, I was gonna grab professional wrestling by the balls. Tonight, I guess this is Wednesday Night Wars come to life, right? With all due respect, Kyle O’Reilly, all of due respect, you are now in with the wrong guy at the wrong place at the wrong time. Because this tournament, this opportunity, whatever you wanna call it, it belongs to me! The Forbidden Door belongs to me! It always has.

June 26th, it’ll be a moment three years in the making! “Three years of blood, sweat and tears, in one fell swoop, NJPW, AEW and this entire sport, belong to me! Love you, mom.” Moxley is ready to take on O’Reilly, but who tears the other apart just to step closer to the Forbidden Door?


AEW has good news on CM Punk.

His surgery’s leg was a success, the doctors are very happy with the outcome, and more updates will come in as time goes on.


AEW has a NEW title on the way!

Tony Schiavone narrates, “Since its formation in 2019, All Elite Wrestling, led by the visionary, Tony Khan, has shaken the world of professional wrestling. Now it’s time to give AEW’s roster of championship athletes a new reason to fight and fulfill their destiny. AEW presents the All-Atlantic Championship, a new title that represents the AEW fans watching around the world in over 130 countries. This spectacular international stage promises to bring you the best of the best for decades to come.”

But who will be the first to hold the All-Atlantic title? A tournament of international flavor will be held, starting tonight! Four brackets will give us the four men who will fight in a Fatal 4 Way at AEW X NJPW: Forbidden Door! Mexico will have Penta Oscuro taking on the Netherlands’ Malakai Black! Canada’s Ethan Page takes on Bulgaria’s Miro, and NJPW will determine its entrants for both Japan and the rest of Asia. But up next, the United Kingdom’s Bastard, PAC, takes on Australia’s Juggernaut, Buddy Matthews!


AEW All-Atlantic Championship Tournament: PAC VS Buddy Matthews!

Not only is this battle about the new belt coming to AEW, but this is also about Death Triangle avenging the underhanded way the House of Black won at Double or Nothing! Will PAC make Buddy pay for the sins of the House? Or Buddy break the Bastard once and for all?

The bell rings, fans rally and the two stare down. Buddy and Pac circle, tie up, and Buddy wrenches to a wristlock. Buddy YANKS the arm, grinds Pac’s shoulder, but Pac fights up. Buddy wrenches again, Pac rolls, pries free, and has the wristlock back. Buddy rolls, handsprings around, then wrenches again. Buddy grinds the arm, fans duel, and Pac uses ropes to flip through and wrench. Buddy wrenches, hits a headlock takeover, but Pac keeps his shoulders up. Pac headscissors, Buddy kips free but Pac headlocks for the takeover. Buddy headscissors, Pac kips free, Buddy sweeps to cover, ONE! Pac sweeps the cover, ONE!

Both men spring up and fans fire up for the stare down! Pac and Buddy reset, circle, and they tie up. Buddy headlocks, Pac powers out, but Buddy runs Pac over! Things speed up, and Pac kips up to stare Buddy down. Pac ducks the haymaker, headlocks but Buddy powers out. Pac runs Buddy over, things speed up, Buddy hurdles but Pac RANAS! Buddy bails out, Pac builds speed, but fakes Buddy out with the slide. Buddy rushes out after Pac but Pac gets back in. Pac and Buddy egg each other on. Pac slides out but Buddy fakes Pac now! The two stare down ringside as AEW goes picture in picture.

Pac grabs Buddy to whip but Buddy reverses, only for Pac to reverse back! Buddy tumbles over the timekeeper’s table! Pac tells the ref to hold on while he fetches Buddy. Pac brings Buddy up and puts him in, and then he goes up the top rope. Buddy trips Pac up! Buddy climbs up after Pac, brings him into a fireman’s carry, but Pac fights with elbows! But Buddy still brings Pac up to DROP him on the top rope! Not quite a Chicago Skyline but Pac still tumbles down to the floor! Buddy goes out after Pac, brings him up, and RAMS him into the railing! Buddy then hits an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Buddy snarls and brings Pac off the apron, for another APRON BACK SUPLEX!

Buddy pushes Pac into the ring and drags him up by his hair. Buddy brings Pac back to the apron, suplexes, but Pac fights free! Dynamite returns to single picture as Pac grabs at Buddy but Buddy shoulders into him. Buddy shoulders into Pac again, then talks trash right to Pac’s face. Pac avoids the shoulder to KICK Buddy! Pac runs to tilt-o-whirl DRAPING DDT!! Both men are down and fans fire up! Pac drags himself away and fans rally up. Pac watches Buddy crawl from the ropes, Pac ROCKS him with a forearm! Buddy ROCKS Pac, so Pack ROCKS Buddy back. Buddy throws another forearm, but Pac throws more and more forearms!

Pac swings, Buddy blocks to fire off a strike fest! Buddy KICKS Pac, stomps Pac’s foot, but Pac avoids the kick to sobat! And KICK! And sobat! Buddy drops, Pac runs, but Buddy UPPERCUTS! Buddy snapmares Pac and runs, but Pac ducks the kick to roll Buddy up! TWO, Buddy blocks the first superkick but not the second SUPERKICK! Buddy drops again, Pac runs again, but into Buddy’s JUMP KNEE! Fans fire up while both men wobble. Buddy runs into a SNAP GERMAN! LARIAT!! Both men are down and fans fire back up! The ref checks both men but they’re okay to continue. Fans hope they “Fight Forever!” but someone has to advance!

Buddy gets to a corner, Pac runs in, but Buddy BOOTS him! Buddy goes up, but Pac GAMANGIRIS! Buddy wobbles up top, Pac climbs up after him. Pac brings Buddy up but Buddy shoves Pac down! Buddy adjusts, leaps, sunset flip! Pac rolls through but into Buddy’s SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!!! Pac survives and fans can’t believe it! Buddy and Pac slowly rise and the fans rally up. Pac gets away from Buddy, goes to a corner, but Buddy runs in, into a back elbow! Pac goes up, but Buddy tucks him in! CHEEK- NO, Pac BOOTS Buddy away, then jumps on for a POISON-RANA!! Buddy flounders and Pac fires up!

Pac runs in at Buddy as fans give a standing ovation, BOOT! Pac keeps Buddy in the drop zone then goes right up! BLACK ARROW!! Cover, Pac wins!!

Winner: PAC, by pinfall (advances to Forbidden Door)

The Bastard avenges Death Triangle, and both Fenix and Penta make their way out to celebrate with him. But this won’t be the end of it, as Penta and Malakai meet in another match in this tournament. Will Death Triangle have two men in? Or will Malakai avenge Buddy and go to the Forbidden Door for the House?


Eddie Kingston speaks backstage.

He wants the cameras to watch. They tell him he has a minute, but Kingston won’t need a minute! Hager, you cost Kingston a chance to be champion! Kingston promised himself he’d be world champion and Hager cost him that! Garcia and 2point0 or whatever you guys are, and Chris Jericho, you all better be watching. Kingston is going to get them all! And don’t you count him down. He’ll do what he wants. He knows what it all means, this TV production stuff. But Hager! Kingston wants you on Rampage! Doesn’t matter if the show’s on after the NBA, before the NHL, whatever, he wants a match! Kingston wants Hager on Rampage for a FIGHT! Now we can tell the truck Kingston’s done!


AEW returns and #JustTrent is in the ring.

“Guys, I’m kind of bummed out. Today’s supposed to be National Best Friends Day, and my friends aren’t here. Something else is bothering me. A few weeks ago, myself and Rocky Romero, we had a match for the ROH Tag Team titles. And while we didn’t win that match, we didn’t lose, either. So the way I see it, Roppongi Vice deserves one more shot!” Fans like the sound of that! Trent knows FTR are fighting champs, so why don’t they come out and make things right? FTR obliges and fans fire up to see the ROH & AAA World Tag Team Champions. They join Trent in the ring, and Trent lets Cash have the mic.

Fans chant for “FTR! FTR!” and Cash says, “Thank you, thank you, thank you very much. And as much as this pains me to say, because we are fighting champs, you’re absolutely right, Trent. We didn’t lose against Roppongi Vice, but we damn sure didn’t win, and that doesn’t sit well with me or with Dax. Because we want to come out here, night after night, and show every single one of these people without any single doubt we are the absolute best tag team on this planet.” Fans cheer that, and Dax gets the mic. “And look, Trent. If it were up to us, we’d come out here to Kansas City and give these people a treat with you guys.”

But… Rocky is in Japan, so FTR won’t hold that against RPG Vice. The problem here, though, isn’t with FTR. It’s with those guys who attacked them all and cost RPG Vice the match. It should be all of “Will Ospreay’s Bitch Boys.” And Dax thinks that if it were up to him… Wait, wait, someone is coming out? NJPW’s United Empire is here! Will Ospreay, the Commonwealth Kingpin, is here in person! And though he’s the only one on stage, he’s not alone! From behind, it’s Aaron Henare and Aussie Open, Mark Davis and Kyle Fletcher! Henare SPEARS Trent down, then he, Ospreay and Aussie Open mug FTR!

Fans lose their minds at this shocking attack from the Empire! They scrape Cash out, then Dax, and then they get Trent up! Aussie Open double pump handle for the CORIOLIS EFFECT! Ospreay then puts on his elbow pad and he aims at Trent! HIDDEN BLADE!! Fans are torn but, will Ospreay and his men make this UEW: The United Empire’s Wrestling?


Tony Schiavone interviews reDRagon, Adam Cole, and William Regal.

Kyle is facing Moxley tonight, but Regal wanted to address the Undisputed Elite first. “Kyle, Bobby, I’ve taught you both many, many things over the last few years. But this is Jon Moxley you’re facing. This is a man who even sends shivers down my spine. Are you sure you’re ready for this? After that grueling battle royal, are you sure? Think about your wife, think about your friends. Are they going to miss you? My best wishes. It’s going to really hurt me to be on commentary when I have to call you getting your head cracked open.”

Regal leaves, then Kyle repeats, “Think about my wife? Think about my friends? That’s who I think about every time I step into that ring, and I’ve got all the momentum in the world right now. I’ve got wins over Jungle Boy, wins over Rey Fenix, Darby Allin. I came to AEW to do two things, Tony: Fight the best this world has to offer, and fight for the AEW Championship. And tonight, I get to do both against Jon Moxley in the main event.” Cole and Fish like that fire. Cole is going to go call commentary for what’s next, but he knows Kyle has this.

And just as he said, Cole joins commentary. It seems “The King of Harts” has some interest in what an “old friend” is up to tonight.

Hangman Page VS David Finlay!

The Cowboy lost the title to CM Punk, but the irony is that Punk’s leg takes him out of action and Hangman is not in the running for the interim title. Will Hangman fight his way up so that no matter who is champion, he can take that title from them? Or will the fourth generation Man Who Loves to Fight take that fight to him?

The bell rings and the two get in each other’s face. Finlay shoves but they tie up. Finlay puts Hangman on ropes, Hangman turns it around, they both go around and around and end up in a corner. The ref counts, fans chant for “COWBOY SH*T!” as Hangman lets off, but Finlay shoves him! So Hangman shoves back! They tie up again, Hangman headlocks but Finlay powers out. Hangman CLOBBERS Finlay and fans fire up. Hangman speeds things up, Finlay drops then dropkicks! Cover, ONE! Cole says he can tell that Hangman’s emotional even though he won’t show it, while Hangman and Finlay tie up.

Finlay wrenches to an armlock but Hangman rolls and wrenches to wristlock. Finlay spins, wrenches, hammerlocks, and he wrangles Hangman to the mat. Finlay then steps over to cover, ONE! Finlay facelocks, Hangman gets up and Finlay shifts to a headlock. Hangman powers out, Finlay runs him over, and things speed up. Hangman hurdles, Finlay shoves him, but Finlay jumps into Hangman’s arms! Scoop SLAM, but Finlay kangaroo kicks! Hangman avoids the dropkick to BOOT Finlay down! Fans fire up and Hangman smirks while he catches his breath. Hangman gets Finlay up and CHOPS him! And CHOPS again!

Hangman whips Finlay out of the ring, Finlay hurries back up but Hangman BLASTS him off the apron! Fans fire up, Hangman encourages them to get louder, then he builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and Finlay hits railing! Hangman gets a drink from a young lady in the front row and takes a sip. Hangman thanks her and hands the drink back, then goes to Finlay. Hangman puts Finlay in and fans rally up again. Hangman runs corner to corner but Finlay dodges! Finlay runs in, blocks Hangman’s boot and KNEE JAMMERS! Hangman hobbles, Finlay CHOP BLOCKS! Finlay has evened things with Hangman while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Finlay drags Hangman up from the ropes, EuroUppers, then runs in to uppercut at the corner! Finlay shoves Hangman down, goes up, and leaps for a FLYING UPPERCUT! Cover, ONE!! Finlay is frustrated but he hip drops Hangman’s leg at the ropes! And again! But then Hangman BOOTS Finlay out! Hangman gets up, builds speed, but slides into the apron skirt trap! A Finlay family classic! Finlay fires off on Hangman, and even HEADBUTTS him! Hangman flops down under the skirt and Finlay smirks as he drags Hangman back up and in. Finlay stomps Hangman in the corner, but Hangman hits back with body shots!

Hangman runs, but Finlay dropkicks the legs out! Finlay drags Hangman back and has the leg, to DDT the foot! Hangman clutches the leg but Finlay digs his knee into the back of it. Finlay clamps on an STF! Hangman endures, fans rally, and Hangman crawls his way forward! Finlay lets off to SMASH the knee into the mat! Hangman clutches the leg and Finlay drives knees into Hangman’s side! Finlay looms over Hangman, brings him up, and scoops to SLAM Hangman into the ropes! Finlay drags Hangman from the ropes, Dynamite returns to single picture and Finlay stomps away.

Finlay steps through but Hangman kicks at him with the legs. Fans fire up, Hangman fireman’s carries! Finlay slips off, duck sand dodges, but leaps into Hangman’s arms! FALL AWAY SLAM! Fans fire up and Hangman manages the kip up! Cole is furious about that, and Hangman runs corner to corner at Finlay for a big clothesline! Then a short arm LARIAT! Hangman CHOPS Finlay, and CHOPS, and then brings Finlay around to whip. Finlay reverses but Hangman holds ropes to stop himself. Finlay storms over but is put on the apron. Hangman TRIANGLE JUMP LARIATS! Fans fire up, Hangman aims and PLANCHAS! Direct hit and down goes Finlay!

Cole says he knew that’d hurt Hangman’s bad leg. Hangman drags Finlay up, puts him in the ring, and Finlay flounders to a corner. Fans rally up and Hangman runs corner to corner, into an elbow! Finlay runs in, into a POP-UP POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO! Cole knows they’ve been throwing heavy shots, something has to give. Fans rally, Hangman gets Finlay up to an Alabama Lift, but Finlay slips off. Hangman bucks the waistlock but runs into an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Finlay is frustrated that Hangman survives, but he aims from a corner. Finlay runs in corner to corner, to UPPERCUT!

Cole likes where this is going as Finlay pushes Hangman away. Finlay goes up, CROSSBODIES, but Hangman rolls through with it! Cole doesn’t like where this is going now, Hangman brings Finlay up, but Finlay cradles! TWO!! Hangman escapes, Finlay UPPERCUTS! And uppercuts again! Finlay whips Hangman to a corner, Hangman bounces off the buckles and comes back, but Finlay ducks the lariat to GERMAN SUPLEX! Hangman lands on his feet! But the bad leg jams! Hangman’s slow to spinning, Finlay ROCKS him first! Finlay runs, into a LARIAT!! Hangman goes to the apron and Cole is upset. Slingshot, BUCKSHOT!! Cover, Hangman wins!!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

Hangman gets back up on the horse with this win, and he gets a mic to speak. Fans chant and Hangman says, “There’s a lot I want to say about the AEW World Championship. But tonight is not the night. Tonight, I wasn’t in the little battle royal, and it doesn’t look like I’m gonna get a title shot any time soon.” Fans boo but Hangman says, “But since that’s the case, I remembered there’s not only one world championship in professional wrestling. So the last Sunday in June, Forbidden Door, I want the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship! And I, want, OKADA!”

Cole speaks up and says Hangman has to be kidding. “Are you really that delusional? First of all, Okada might not even be the champion. It could very well be my good friend, Jay White. But you didn’t think about that. Because you don’t think like a champion. Oh, also, everyone, newsflash: Page, you aren’t a champion anymore! You lost the AEW World Championship, and I won the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. Meaning I’ve been on a frickin’ roll ain’t nobody gonna stop. If anybody should get a shot at the IWGP Championship, it should be ME! Because I am the new franchise player here in AEW! Your time has come and gone, my friend.

And whether Hangman or anyone else wants to admit it, AEW is all about Adam Cole, Baybay. So Cole suggests that Hangman just stay out of the way. That ain’t no cowboy sh*t, that’s a promise! BOOM. Cole has staked his claim and puts Page in his place, but will management have other ideas?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Kansas City is All Elite, but so is his guest. It’s WARDLOW! Fans chant for “WARD~LOW!” as he makes his way out, and his theme song is restored! Wardlow goes to the ring and Schiavone brings up that Wardlow opted not to be in tonight’s battle royal, and now we’ll hear why. Wardlow is handed the mic and he hears the fans chanting “WARD~LOW!” for him. “Oh, Kansas City… Welcome to Wardlow’s World! And you’re right, Tony, I asked not to take part in the Battle Royal for the heavyweight championship. The reason being, CM Punk is our champion. So if I’m not making him tap or pinning his shoulders to the mat, I don’t want it yet.

“So heal up real quick, champ, because you can bet your ass I’ll be waiting for you when you get back.” Fans like the sound of that. Wardlow continues to say there is a title he does want. A title that few men have carried that brought an incredible amount of respect to it. “Unfortunately, since then, there’s a few men that have completely diminished it. That’s a title that I had won three months ago. A title that I have thought about every day since that night. I want the TNT TITLE!” Fans like the sound of that, too! “It’s time for a change around here, and-”

But before Wardlow can continue, Scorpio Sky walks out on stage, holding up the TNT Championship. Fans boo Scorpio but he’s at least heading to the ring to confront Wardlow. But then Dan Lambert and Ethan Page scramble out to stop him! They don’t want Scorpio to fight while he’s less than 100%, and Lambert even calls Wardlow a coward for calling out a man who is at less than 100%. Ethan tells Wardlow to wait, but Wardlow says if Scorpio’s got a bum knee, Wardlow is All Elite now. He’s got all the time in the world. He’ll wait until Scorpio feels 110%! Scorpio, Ethan and Lambert leave, but wait, now Mark Sterling is on the tron.

Sterling tells Wardlow he shouldn’t be focused on anything right now, because last week, he ripped up legal documents life on TV! “You can’t do that, you dummy!” But Sterling is starting to realize, Wardlow might not understand the big words coming out of Sterling’s mouth, and these fine men in the security staff aren’t going to get the money they deserve. So, because Sterling is a nice guy, he’ll give Wardlow two options: face Sterling in the court of law over the class action lawsuit on behalf of the American Arena Security Professionals; or he wrestles 20 of them at once, live on TV, in an elimination match! Either way, Wardlow pays! So will Wardlow choose to do this the easy way, or will he take Sterling to court?


The Young Bucks are on the Cutler Cam.

How they lookin’, Brandon? Super cute. Alright, good. Matt Jackson says, “What a week it was last week, right, brother?” Nick says, “Unbelievable!” First, in LA on Wednesday, the Bucks beat the current reigning AEW World Tag Team Champions, clean as a whistle! And then on Friday in their hometown of Ontario, California, the Bucks beat their biggest rivals in the Lucha Brothers. Matt wants to know if Nick agrees with him, “The Young Bucks are back, baby! And y’know what? We want our Tag Team titles back.” Nick agrees with all that, but then there’s a knock on the door. And in walk in the Hardy Boyz!

What’re they doing in the Bucks’ office? What do they want? Nice room, Bucks of Youth. But uh, they were walking by, saw the door was cracked, heard them talking, and Matt Hardy just expected the Bucks to be burying the Hardys like always. But they weren’t! They were talking about winning matches, which they have, and that they deserve a tag title match. Well, if memory serves, the Hardys beat the Bucks at Double or Nothing! So if anyone deserves a shot, it’s the Hardys! Jeff says amen, but then in walk Christian Cage & Jurassic Express! They should really keep that door locked, y’know. Oh, okay, everyone just make themselves at home!

Captain Charisma says he couldn’t help but overhear the chatter, too. Bucks want a title match, Hardys want a title match, but he doesn’t think either of them deserve it yet. They gotta earn it the same way “we” did. Now yes, the Bucks pinned Jungle Boy in his hometown of Los Angeles in front of his family. But the titles weren’t on the line. When they are on the line, things will be different, that is where “we” get the win back. But y’know what? Christian throws out a challenge to both teams, the Hardys and Bucks.

And what Christian is thinking is, a match that put the Hardys and Christian on the map. A match that made them household names. A match that even made the Bucks famous. Then just say it! “Next week, right here on Dynamite, for the AEW World Tag Team titles… The Hardy Boyz VS The Young Bucks VS Jurassic Express… IN A LADDER MATCH!” The Bucks and Hardys are fired up but JB is questioning Christian’s logic. Now get out of their office! Fine, see you next week, Bucks. Cutler, cut the camera, you dumbass. But will Christian be looking like the idiot for putting his boys in a position to lose?


AEW Women’s World Championship: Thunder Rosa VS Marina Shafir!

La Mera Mera issued the challenge on social media, but she didn’t have to wait long for a response! The Problem dared Rosa to solve her, will Rosa have that solution? Or will Rosa’s run end when Marina stumps her?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and it is time to test Rosa’s Problem solving skills!

Marina and Rosa tie right up, go around, and fans rally for Rosa as Marina brings Rosa down. Rosa brings Marina down in return, they both get back up, still locked up collar ‘n’ elbow, and then go back to center. Rosa puts Marina on ropes, the ref counts but Marina pushes forward. Rosa monkey flips and rolls back to try a cover, but Marina throws Rosa off. They still stay locked up, until Marina knees low! Marina whips Rosa to a corner, brings her around and bumps her off buckles. Rosa staggers, Marina snarls and Marina bumps Rosa off buckles again. Marina throws in knees, but lets off as the ref counts.

Marina cravats to snapmare but Rosa drags Marina down and goes for a cording hold! Fans rally as Rosa has the double wristlock but Marina slips around and gets a rear mount to a SLEEPER! Rosa pushes Marina back, rolls back and has a cover, TWO! Marina has the leg! Rosa scrambles but Marina ties up the legs in a deathlock. Rosa rolls, Marina shifts to a clinch, but Rosa bumps her off buckles first! Rosa CHOPS, and CHOPS, but Marina eggs her on! Rosa CHOPS again then fires off forearms! Marina shoves Rosa away, blocks the overhand chop to CHOP back! Marina then rams into Rosa again and again, wanting to get leverage.

Rosa fights off the judo throw to CLOBBERS Marina! Rosa clinches, throws knees, but Marina blocks. Marina lifts but Rosa fights that and sobats! Rosa drops to RHODES UPPERCUT! Shout out to Dustin, and Rosa storms in after Marina. Rosa clinches, Marina fires body shots and facelocks. Marina suplexes but Rosa fights it. Marina powers it through to snap suplex Rosa down! Fans rally while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Marina clinches Rosa but Rosa fights back with a clinch of her own. The knees and kicks fly, Marina BOOTS Rosa into a corner! Marina storms up on Rosa, brings her up, and THROWS Rosa down! Marina clamps onto Rosa with a neck wrench while talking some trash. Marina makes Rosa look at the camera but Rosa fights her way up. Marina KICKS Rosa in the back! Marina snarls but fans rally as Rosa gets to ropes. Marina ties Rosa up in the ropes, bends her back, and lets off at 4 to CLUB Rosa down! Marina looms over Rosa, digs her knee in to the cover, ONE! Marina is after the arms, and she ties Rosa up in a straitjacket stretch!

Rosa endures as Marina leans on the hold. Rosa fights up, throws kicks, but Marina throws Rosa down again! Marina looms over Rosa, kicks at her, toys with her, and then KICKS her! Marina KICKS at Rosa’s legs, but Rosa KICKS Marina’s legs back. Marina KICKS, Rosa KICKS, but then Marina shoots in to trip Rosa! BOSTON CRAB! Rosa fights, Marina shifts her grip to get the Indian Deathlock back, then floats to a facelock. Rosa endures, fight sup, and fans rally, only for Marina to CLUB her and CLUB her again. Marina KICKS Rosa low, and then KICKS her high! Marina bumps Rosa off buckles, then scowls as she throws body shots.

Dynamite returns to single picture as Rosa counter-kicks one of Marina’s low kicks. Rosa fires up and BOOTS Marina down! Fans fire up and Rosa runs corner to corner to forearm smash! Rosa goes side to side to A-LIST LARIAT! Marina sits, Rosa goes up, SWINGING KNEES! Rosa has Marina on ropes and fires KC up for the DROPKICK! Then another DROPKICK against ropes! NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO! Fans rally, Rosa gets Marina up and fireman’s carries, but Marina throws elbows. Marina KICKS the leg, then hauls Rosa up to pump handle. Marina CLUBS Rosa, hooks her up, TWISTING EXPLODER! Cover, TWO!!

Marina grows frustrated, maybe the Problem is having a problem with the champ! Marina clamps onto Rosa’s face again, drags her up, but Rosa throws body shots. Rosa firemen’s carries, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Cover, TWO!! Rosa roars and brings Marina up, to KICK her! And KICK! Rosa powers up but Marina blocks the kick! Palm strike and a lift, but Rosa sunset flips, TWO!! Rosa gets up but Marina gets around to waistlock. Rosa switches, Marina switches back, but Rosa victory rolls, and wins!!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall (still AEW Women’s World Champion)

The solution came in the blink of an eye, and Rosa retains the title! But Marina is pissed and she KICKS Rosa down! Marina hauls Rosa up in chicken wings to HEADBUTT her in the back, then SAYANAGI! Fans boo as Marina ties Rosa up in the INGREDIENT! The leg lock armlock combo is putting Rosa out, but TONI STORM rushes in! Storm dropkicks Marina and fires off fists! Marina shoves Storm away, but Storm gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX! Rosa gets Marina up, for the FIRE THUNDER DRIVER! Fans fire up, but now Storm picks up the title. Storm hands it back to Rosa, but will she want her shot next? What will happen with Storm and Thunder clash?


Backstage interview with The Baddies.

Schiavone is here with Jade Cargill, Red Velvet, Kiera Hogan & Stokely Hathaway to bring up the big match on this Friday’s Rampage. She says it seems more like no one can mind their damn business. Hathaway says, “And you heard the queen, Tony. Last week on Dynamite, we had an issue with Athena. We confronted Athena, and then all of a sudden, Anna Jay and um, what’s the name of that big head girl from outer space?” Kris Statlander. More like, “Statland yourself back on that ugly planet you came from.”

That’s it! “Kristen Highlander,” you’re going 1v1 with Red Velvet this Friday, and once Velvet is done with you, you’ll be beggin’ like Keith Swettin. Who can beat Velvet? NOBOOODY! And Tony? Cut the sh*t. Who wins the huge grudge match between these former friends?


Interim AEW World Championship Eliminator: Jon Moxley VS Kyle O’Reilly!

AEW X NJPW Forbidden Door is but 18 days away! The Maniac wants to get back to the top of AEW, but #KillerKyle wants his first taste! Who proves they want it more in this guaranteed knockdown, drag-out fight of a main event?

The bell rings and fans fire up. Kyle and Moxley circle, feel things out, and knuckle lock. Kyle tests the waters with a kick but Moxley stays up. They go again, Kyle tries another kick but Moxley still stays up. They go again, Kyle shoots in but Moxley holds off the takedown to float to a mount. Kyle rolls and uses his legs to get a TRIANGLE! Moxley throws hands, Kyle shifts and they end up in ropes. Kyle gets away and fans rally up. Moxley and Kyle reset, tie up collar ‘n’ elbow, and Regal loves the energy. Moxley waistlocks, Kyle wrenches free and gets a wristlock, but Moxley rolls and wrenches through to cording hold and hip toss! Cover, ONE!

Kyle gets Moxley’s foot while Regal says he loves seeing the “Cornish Height” from Moxley. Moxley hops his way to ropes, the ref counts and Kyle KICKS Moxley’s leg as he lets off. The ref reprimands, but Moxley and Kyle reset. Moxley and Kyle circle, feel out another grapple, but then Moxley SLAPS Kyle! Kyle shrugs that off, they go again, and each man tests the waters with attempt at slaps and kicks. They then tie up collar ‘n’ elbow, Moxley wrenches and hammerlocks and he wrangles Kyle down. Kyle reaches back, Moxley cranks the arm and then gets the other. Moxley bends the fingers! Then SNAPS them!

Kyle clutches his hand while the ref reprimands, but Moxley wrenches Kyle’s arm to wrangle him down again. Moxley shits for a Short Arm Scissor, almost a half nelson. Kyle pushes up and has a cover, ONE, into an ARMBAR! Moxley clasps hands, Regal knows you can’t count Kyle out with his high technical IQ, but Moxley gets around to stack Kyle. Kyle lets him go but now Moxley wants Kyle’s legs. Moxley shoots around to grab the wrists, for some DANIELSON STOMPS! Moxley wants to kick Kyle’s head in but Kyle gets away and out of the ring! Fans fire up, Kyle gets back in but he’s wary of charging Moxley.

Moxley smirks and puts his hands back, daring Kyle to do something. Kyle throws fast strikes for free! Moxley ROCKS Kyle but Kyle ROCKS him back. They go forearm for forearm, fans firing up as they pick up speed! Moxley gives Kyle boxing elbows and a HEADBUTT! Kyle wobbles, Moxley eggs him on, so Kyle KIKCS and KICKS and KICKS! Moxley goes to a corner, Kyle KICKS him more and more! Kyle whips, Moxley reverses and runs in to clothesline! And then another clothesline! And another! Moxley fires up and the fans are with him as he goes corner to corner, only for Kyle to dropkick the legs out!

Kyle goes to an apron, Moxley ROCKS him first! Moxley steps through, into a DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Just like Kyle did to Yuta! Kyle ties Moxley’s leg up in the ropes, then hurries up top! GUILLOTINE KNEE DROP!! The leg gets bent and fans fire up as Dynamite goes picture in picture!

Moxley gets free of the ropes and hobbles away, but Kyle pursues. Kyle BOOTS Moxley into the chair in the corner! Kyle then BOOTS Moxley while he’s in the chair! And KICKS him! Moxley grabs the foot! Moxley brings Kyle around, and CHOPS him down! Moxley waits, Kyle gets up, and Moxley CHOPS him into the chair! Moxley climbs up to rain down fists on Kyle, and the fans count along! Moxley brings Kyle up to whip, but Kyle reverses and Moxley is sent into railing! Kyle runs in to DROPKICK Moxley out of the chair! Fans fire up while the ref tells Kyle to get this in the ring. Moxley finds himself stuck but Kyle wants to use that to his advantage!

Kyle is in the ring, the ring count starts, and Moxley has to get himself unstuck. Moxley is free but the count is climbing. Moxley gets in at 8 of 10 but Kyle BOOTS him down! Kyle rains down forearms and palm strikes in a ground ‘n’ pound! Kyle lets off to soak up the cheers and jeers from KC. Moxley crawls to ropes, but Kyle goes out to the apron and SLAMS the bad leg on the edge! And then again! Kyle DECKS Moxley, SLAMS the bad leg again, repeat! Kyle climbs the corner to the top but Moxley stands up. Moxley staggers, but he still hits ropes to trip Kyle up! Moxley then goes up after Kyle and CLUBS away on him!

Fans rally as Moxley CLAWS Kyle’s back! The ref reprimands, Moxley stops, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Moxley brings Kyle up, for a SUPER HALF HATCH SUPLEX! Both men crash down and Moxley clutches his bad arm. The ref starts a standing count and fans count along. Moxley and Kyle stir at 3 of 10, but stand at 5! Kyle fires a forearm, Moxley gives it back! Kyle hits again so Moxley KICK! Kyle KICKS, Moxley KICKS, repeat! Kyle forearms, fires off more strikes, but Moxley gives HEADBUTT after HEABUTT! Moxley runs to BOOT, but Kyle BOOTS back! Moxley and Kyle DOUBLE BOOT and they both fall!

Fans fire up again as the standing count restarts. But Kyle is up and he has the arm to ELBOW- NO! SLEEPER! But Kyle pries free, so Moxley shifts hands, CHICKEN WING CROSSFACE! Kyle endures, reaches out, ROPEBREAK with his teeth! Moxley lets off, and kicks the ropes to jam Kyle’s jaw! LARIAT!! Cover, TWO!! Kyle survives but Moxley won’t let off! HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Kyle slips free but Moxley facelocks for KNEE after KNEE! Kyle blocks to get around, CROSSFACE FOREARMS, then knees and elbows of his own! Kyle KICKS Moxley in the back, and KICKS again! Kyle then facelocks, Moxley slips out to HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOW!!

Fans are thunderous as Moxley just leaves Kyle rag dolled! But then he underhooks, only for Kyle to block the lift! Moxley throws more knees, runs, but into a KNEE from Kyle! PENALTY KICK! Both men are down and the standing count starts again. Kyle roars as he gets right up, but into a CUTTER! Fans are thunderous again and Moxley drags Kyle up, to GOTCH LIFT PILE- NO! Kyle gets a TRIANGLE COUNTER!! Kyle has Moxley with just legs and he fires off elbows into Moxley’s head! Moxley fights and slips free, but Kyle gets the leg! KNEEBAR AND HEEL HOOK!! Moxley endures, kicks with his free leg, but Kyle gets that leg, too! DOUBLE KNEEBAR!!

Moxley grabs at Kyle’s beard, then JABS Kyle right in the mouth! Kyle lets go, clutching his jaw, but Moxley hauls him right up. PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!?? Kyle narrowly escapes and both men are down! Fans are fired up, still rallying behind Moxley. Kyle fires a forearm, Moxley fires a forearm. Kyle fires another, Moxley gives another. They go back and forth, going for palm strikes now in a wild slap fight! Kyle KICKS low then AX AND SMASH!! SAIDO!! But Moxley’s right up!? To SAIDO right back! But then Kyle’s right back up! DOUBLE LARIATS collide! And again! And again! Both men lean on each other as they slump to their knees!

KC is thunderous again as both men slowly stand back up. “This is Awesome!” as Kyle SLAPS, but Moxley gets a SLEEPER! Moxley squeezes tight, and gets the BULLY CHOKE!! Kyle endures, is turning red, so Moxley shifts to a facelock and KNEES! Moxley runs, to REGAL KNEE!! But that’s not all, Moxley gets the arms, for the PARADIGM SHIFT!! Cover, Moxley wins!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (advances to Forbidden Door)

The Maniac conquers #KillerKyle! And now, Moxley is walking up to that Forbidden Door! NJPW determines their contender this Sunday at Dominion in Osaka-Jo Hall, Hiroshi Tanahashi VS Hirooki Goto! Who will meet Moxley in Chicago for that Interim AEW World Championship?

My Thoughts:

A great AEW here that sets up a lot for Forbidden Door, and even next week for Road Rager. Though, I must’ve misread something when they mentioned it last time, because I thought this was for July. But Road Rager 2022 looks great, with a great promo segment setting up the AEW World Tag Team Championship match. Jurassic Express VS Bucks VS Hardys in a Ladder Match is going to be amazing stuff, and this could be the way Jurassic Express lose without it really hurting them. What it should also set up is JB confronting Christian Cage on acting like he’s the leader and putting them into the ladder match, and we could end up with JB VS Christian 1v1 in time for the Blood & Guts special.

We also got a good promo from Wardlow to set up his story. He gives us a reason why he’s waiting on the world title, but at least he is going after the TNT Championship next, as he should. He is definitely taking on those 20 “security guards” in what will be history’s biggest and most amazing squash match. After getting through all 20 of Sterling’s guys, Wardlow will get at Scorpio Sky, and that could go either way given. Wardlow is super over, fans would love seeing him get that title. But at the same time, Scorpio has Ethan and Lambert, they could cheat Wardlow like they have everyone else for some big heat. I’m hoping AEW goes with Wardlow winning, though.

Hangman VS Finlay was a great match, and Cole was a lot of fun on commentary. Of course Hangman wins, and I like that he called out Okada for Forbidden Door. Okada has said Forbidden Door won’t mean as much without him,  so good to see someone wants after him. But I also liked that Cole called Hangman out for thinking he just gets a title match. Pretty sure we’ll get Adam VS Adam III, winner faces whoever is IWGP World Heavyweight Champion after Dominion. In that regard, pretty sure Hangman wins, because if White ends up winning, Cole isn’t facing him. Either way, the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship is going to have an awesome match.

Great AEW Women’s World Championship match, and it was all the greater because it was gritty and sloppy at times. It was like a real fight because both women have MMA training, so they made the best out of this one. Rosa of course retains, but Marina attacking her after was a bit of a surprise. Storm making the save was also a surprise, but it does set up Rosa VS Storm, and that is going to be really good stuff. I would think Rosa wins again, they might be wanting to build her up for when Britt makes her way back around, or for Jade Cargill wanting both titles. The Baddies had a good promo, Velvet VS Statlander will be good, but that Six Woman Tag has to still be coming.

We got a great bit with Trent, FTR and the United Empire. Rampage will have a big match of Trent & FTR VS Ospreay & Aussie Open, and it will surely set up a big tag title match at Forbidden Door, RPG Vice getting another shot at the ROH tag titles while perhaps also bringing in the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships, as Great-O-Khan & Jeff Cobb will be getting a rematch for those against Bullet Club’s Chase Owens & Bad Luck Fale. FTR could end up becoming the tag team equivalent of Ultimo Dragon when he had all the different Junior Heavyweight titles draped on him, and I would love to see it.

AEW bringing in a new title is a great surprise, but was still hoping for Trios titles. The All-Atlantic title looks beautiful, but a little oddly named when Asia and Australia don’t touch the Atlantic… But what a great tournament with a lot of great match-ups, and I can’t wait to see who NJPW throws in. PAC VS Buddy tonight was a great opener to that series, but you can bet Malakai will beat Penta so that there aren’t two Death Triangle members in the Fatal 4 Way. Ethan VS Miro will surely go Miro’s way, and I feel like Miro will be a front runner for that belt. Pac and Malakai will cancel out, the NJPW entrant will just be there for star power, Miro will go on a tear like he did with the TNT title.

Great battle royal to open the night, I still continue to like how AEW’s wrestlers realize they can go under the top rope to do whatever they want outside. I am a little disappointed Swerve turned on Keith and seemed to be tilting towards Heel right after Keith & Swerve said they were going to be a two man power trip. A very dumb, WWE style move there. Kingston has a great promo after where he gets meta about TV direction, and he of course eggs on JAS and we’ll be getting more heat going towards Blood & Guts. And fans were super behind Yuta, but avoiding Blackpool Combat Club VS Blackpool Combat Club was a fair choice.

We get an awesome main event, but it makes a lot of sense for Moxley to win. Kyle is great but he and Fish are still more about the tag division and the Undisputed Elite story. Moxley also had a great promo to make a point that he has been the bridge between AEW and NJPW, and no offense to Goto, but Tanahashi is definitely winning at Dominion. It was meant to be Tanahashi VS Punk, Moxley has been wanting more matches with Tanahashi, we’re definitely getting Tanahashi VS Moxley, and I would think Moxley wins to be interim champion to take on whoever and then await Punk’s return. This kind of predictability borders on boring, because there were many possibilities, but Moxley could still lose the interim title before Punk returns for a shocking match-up, like Punk VS Bryan.

My Score: 8.8/10

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! Will the FTW Champion help The Hardys take control of Ethan’s life? Or will Hook & The Hardys be the ones rendered OBSOLETE?

The trios sort out and Hook starts against Austin. They circle, tie up, and go around. Austin wrenches an arm to a wristlock but Hook wrenches back. Hook wristlocks while the fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS!” Austin wrenches, hammerlocks, headlocks, but Hook power up and out. Austin runs Hook over and fans boo but Austin tells Hook to “SUCK IT!” But Hook gest the leg to a KNEEBAR! Austin gets the ROPEBREAK, Hook lets him go, and the two reset. Ethan tells fans to shut up before he steals their girl. Austin rushes in, but Hook waistlocks and SLAMS him! Fans fire up, Hook gets the arm, and he grinds the shoulder.

Hook brings Austin over, he tags in Matt, and Matt goes up. The fans fire up for the AX HANDLE! Hardy wrenches the arm, ELBOW BREAKER after ELBOW BREAKER, “DELETE! DELETE!

Tag to Hook and Hook takes a handoff to a SAYANAGI! Colten storms in but into a SAYANAGI! Ethan storms in, but into a SAYANAGI! Fans fire up as the Hardys return, they all clothesline Ethan & The Gunns out of the ring!

Fans cheer and chant “DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!” with Matt. The fans then taunt the “ASS~ BOYS!” as they and Ethan regroup. Ethan tells them to get their heads in the game, this is his contract they’re fighting for! Austin tells fans to shut up, but then Hook & The Hardys go out after Ethan & The Gunns! Matt SMACKS Ethan off steel steps, Hook puts Austin in the ring, but Colten turns things around to SMACK Jeff off a corner crossbar! Hook shoulders into Austin but Colten anchors Hook. Hook kicks Colten away, DECKS Ethan, then goes in, but Austin dodges. Austin trips Hook, runs in, BULLDOG!

Austin drags Hook back, tags Colten, and Colten brings Hook to bump him off buckles. Colten stomps a mudhole in, he soaks up the heat and taunts Matt. The ref keeps Matt back, but Ethan uses that to CHOKE Hook! Ethan tags in, he brings Hook along and bumps him off the buckles. Fans rally, Ethan throws hands but Hook counter punches! Fans fire up as Hook backs Ethan down with forearm after forearm! Hook whips, Ethan reverses but Hook BOOTS back! Hook goes up but Ethan ROCKS him! Then scoops to POWERSLAM!

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.”

Jericho has been hypocritical, disrespectful and conniving, but has it all finally come back to haunt him in the worst way possible?

AEW TNT Championship Ladder Match: Wardlow VS Christian Cage w/ Luchasaurus!

The Maestro of Mayhem made it through the Monstar, but now he faces a monster. No, not the Right Hand of Destruction, but Captain Charisma, who is really more like the Chief of Cheap Shots. Christian insulted Wardlow’s deceased father and what supposed little impact he had on anyone’s life, and that is a step too far. Will Wardlow have a major impact on Christian’s life tonight? Or will Captain Charisma remind us that he is the Lord of Ladders?

Surprisingly, Christian has Luchasaurus leave ringside! Is Christian really going to do this 1v1? Does he really think he can survive doing this 1v1? The introductions are made, the belt is already high above, and we see who climbs over the other to bring it down!

Wardlow catches his breath, brings the ladder up, then stomps Christian.

Wardlow climbs, but slowly, only for Christian to anchor his foot! Wardlow climbs back down to drag Christian up. Christian grabs the ladder to escape the bomb! Fans freak out, but Wardlow quickly yanks Christian back down! POWERSLAM! Fans fire up again and Wardlow decides to put the ladder down. Wardlow drags Christian up, trophy lifts him, and he walks around in a circle, SUPER AIRPLANE SPIN, to then DROP Christian on the ladder!!

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?

Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS La Faccion Ingobernable!

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. Bowens goes to accept but Dralistico kicks low! Dralistoco CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS! But Bowens turns things around to CHOP, CHOP and CHOP! Dralistico CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Bowens CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Bowens whips, Dralistico goes up and over and then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA!

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!

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. Dralistico CHOPS, then throws forearm after forearm. Dralistico goes side to side for a SUPERKICK! Dralistico lounges up top and the fans boo. Dralistico drags Caster up to whip but Caster blocks!

Winners: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn, by pinfall

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. Colten drags ??? up, puts him in the corner and stomps away on him! The ref counts, Colten lets off to tell her to shut up! Tag to Austin, Austin stomps a mudhole now, but the ref counts again.

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 dodges, comes back, SLINGBLADE! Cover, TWO!

Britt keeps on Marina with hammering elbows, then she wraps on a chinlock. Britt brings Marina up but Marina blocks the suplex. Britt powers up and still suplexes Marina up and over! Cover, TWO! 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.

Rampage returns and the Vixens double whip Britt into their corner again! Marina sends Nyla in but Britt avoids the splash! Marina hurries after Britt, misses, and she stubs a toe on the ropes! 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! The fans count along and Shida gets all the way to TEN!

Shida roars, brings Marina out with a kick, and then adjusts up top to MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Shida tags Britt then runs to ROCK Nyla! Britt brings Marina up, TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, but Nyla scoop SLAMS Shida onto it! Nyla is mad and she hoists Britt up. Nyla hangs Britt out to dry, then goes to the corner! Nyla climbs, aims, but Shida saves her from the knee!

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
