PLAY BY PLAY

Jon Moxley VS Dante Martin w/ Matt Sydal!

The Maniac sure has a full plate right now: he’s preparing for Hiroshi Tanahashi at The Forbidden Door to crown an Interim AEW World Champion, and then he’ll be part of Blood & Guts 2 just days after that. Will the #Inhuman high-flyer be able to take advantage of all this and finally get a win over Moxley? Or will it be three strikes and he’s out for Angel Dorado?

The bell rings and fans are fired up for Moxley. Dante wants a handshake of good sportsmanship, but Moxley is rather surprised by that. He slaps it away, then circles with Dante. They tie up, Moxley puts Dante into a corner, Jericho and Regal argue on commentary, and the ref counts the ropebreak. Moxley lets off with a push, but Dante pushes back! They stare down and circle again. They knuckle lock, go shoulder to shoulder in a test of strength, and Mox bends Dante back. Dante bridges, fights his way back up, but Moxley kicks and wrenches to a wristlock. Moxley wrangles Dante, but Dante gets up to roll and wrench back.

They tie up again, Moxley shoots in to get a waistlock, then he ripcords Dante for a headlock and takeover. Dante again keeps his shoulder up, moves around and gets to his feet.

Dante ducks, dodges, springboards and SHOTGUNS Mox down! Moxley bails out, Dante builds speed, and Dante jump up, to fake Moxley out! Fans fire up but Moxley keeps cool as he goes around and gets back in the ring. Fans rally, the two circle again, and Moxley eggs Dante on. Dante smirks and CHOPS Moxley! Moxley wants more, so Dante CHOPS again! And CHOPS again! Moxley CHOPS Dante and Dante falls over!

Moxley drags Dante up to put him in the corner for another CHOP! And another CHOP! But Dante dodges the next one to turn things around on Moxley! MACHINE GUN CHOPS!

Moxley pushes Dante to a cover, TWO, but Moxley drags Dante up to throw him out. Moxley dusts off his hands, then takes a moment to adjust his boots. Moxley goes up to flex while the ring count climbs. Dante gets up around 4 of 10, the ref wants Moxley to stay back, and Dante gets in at 7. Moxley drags Dante back out through the ropes and to the apron, for an APRON NECKBREAKER! Moxley then drags Dante off the apron to whip into steel steps! Dante flops back, clutching his ribs, while Moxley gets back in the ring. Moxley just leaves Dante to the count while fans rally up. Dante sits up at 5 of 10, flounders over, and manages to get in at 8!

Road Rager Rampage returns to single picture as Moxley drags Dante up again. Moxley gets a leg, ties Dante up, and puts on a TEXAS CLOVELEAF! Moxley’s sending a message to The Ace, this is one of Tanahashi’s favorite holds! Dante reaches out but Moxley drags him from the ropes to then shift into a DEATHLOCK STF FUSION! Dante endures, fans rally and duel, but Moxley shifts around to facelock. Moxley throws knee after knee into Dante’s head and shoulders! Moxley runs to then KNEE Dante down! Cover, TWO! Dante survives and fans fire up again. Moxley keeps cool and he brings Dante back up.

Moxley turns Dante, but Dante fights out of the neckbreaker to shove Moxley to a corner. Dante runs in, Moxley elbows Dante away and goes up, but Dante returns for a DRAGON RANA! Fans fire up and Dante hurries up the corner! Moxley ROCKS Dante first, then climbs up to clamp onto him. Moxley wants the underhooks, but Dante fights! BUTTERFLY SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission

Dante keeps getting closer and closer but he still isn’t at that level yet! As for Moxley, he keeps momentum and his #1 contender’s spot! Will he be razor sharp when it’s time to face The Ace?

 

Backstage interview with Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland.

Tony Schiavone is here with what was the team #SwerveinOurGlory, but after last week’s Casino Battle Royal where Swerve swerved Keith, are they on the same page? Keith says “Indubitably.” And Keith reminds Swerve that Keith saved him in that battle royal. Keith asks Swerve to give him a reason not to dismantle- No, give him a reason not to just beat Swerve’s ass. Swerve reminds Keith that Swerve wants championship gold in AEW, singles titles included, just as Keith does. That was a singles competition battle royal, not a tag team one. Plus, Swerve is sure Keith would’ve done the same thing to him at some point.

Keith doesn’t want excuses, but Swerve says he has to hold on. Just a few more seconds. They had an agreement, didn’t they? Shaq & Kobe! That’s them! Trust in their team. Believe in their team! But then in walk Team Taz’s Ricky Starks & “Powerhouse” Hobbs. Believe in their team? It’s funny that Swerve & Keith think they’re the best tag team, yet they’ve yet to beat Team Taz. Marinate on that. Will the #AbsolutePowerhouses be what reunites the Limitless House of Keith & Swerve?

 

AEW hears from The House of Black and Death Triangle.

Malakai tells Penta Oscuro that he can wear a darker mask, that he can change everything about himself, and it still won’t make a difference. “Because we allowed you to walk in our world.” But Penta, translated by Alex Abrahantes, has his response: “Malakai, you’re nothing but a clown trying to impersonate a bad guy.” Malakai says Penta’s time here was given to him, so it is about time Malakai takes Penta “out of this world and into the next.” But PAC tells Malakai Black that Penta Oscuro is the one who will send you packing back to the other side, “ya strange, gangly creep.” When forces of darkness collide, which side will head for the Forbidden Door?

 

Six Man Tag: Max Caster & Gunn Club VS Ruffin’ It!

Platinum Max is back at it with Austin & Colten, going up against a newly formed alliance of Leon Ruff & Bear Country! But of course, Caster has a rap to run his opponents down. “Acclaimed ‘n’ the Gunns, yo, we’re back in the mix. Got more people hearing me than January 6th. Honestly, I had something to say. But somebody made me sign an NDA. We gon’ kill you so casual, since St. Louis is the murder capital. And let me leave you with a factoid: Everybody loves The Acclaimed & the Ass Boys!” Again, not approved by the Gunns. Austin gets the mic to shout out Kansas City, but that was last week! Colten handles this: “ST. PETERSBURG!” What?!

Bowens takes the mic and says, “ST. LOUIIIIIS~! THE ACCLAIMED! HAVE ARRIIIVED!” And Bowens leads the crowd in an “ASS~ BOYS~!” chant before everyone gets in the ring. The teams sort out, but then the Acclaimed Gunn Club attack Ruffin’ It from behind! Austin handles Ruff while Colten and Caster kick Boulder and Bronson out! The ref reprimands but Colten ROCKS Boulder and Caster POSTS Bronson! The bell rings so this is on the record, and Austin stands on Ruff’s head. Colten sends Boulder into steel steps and Austin drags Ruff up to bump off buckles. Austin calls to Colten and Caster, and they TRIPLE SCISSOR FINGERS~!

Austin stays in the ring but Ruff ROCKS him! Austin CHOPS Ruff off his feet and then shouts, “Who’s an Ass Boy now?!” Austin bumps Ruff off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, then tags Colten. Colten then tags Caster before he feeds Ruff to Austin, for the QUICK DRAW! Caster is up top, MIC DROP! Cover, Acclaimed Gunn Club wins!

Winners: Max Caster & Gunn Club, by pinfall

That was surprisingly dominant from Billy’s boys, and his sons, Austin & Colten. Will this faction continue to climb the ranks until they’re looking at some gold?

 

Backstage interview with #Hookhausen.

Lexi Nair once again talks with the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, and she announces that next week on Rampage, Hook faces a top prospect out of NJPW’s LA Dojo. That is an exciting way to kick off the Forbidden Door weekend. She holds the mic for Hook to say something, but he just shrugs. Well, okay. Does anything excite Hook? Uh, well, Lexi admits she walked into that one. But then Danhausen finally appears, and he says yes, hello, oh, they’re filming? Well, anyway, he is very excited to announce that Hook is facing one of these NJPW top prospects, one of those dojo masters or something. But Hookhausen will annihilate them, destroy them, and eviscerate them!

Hook has Danhausen stop there, and says, “I got this.” Well, alright. Danhausen accepts that Hook has this handled. Back to you, commentary! But just who will NJPW send from the LA Dojo? And will that Young Lion regret wanting AEW to #SendHook?

 

AEW TBS Championship: Jade Cargill w/ The Baddies VS Willow Nightingale!

The undefeated and inaugural AEW TBS Champion doesn’t show a lot of respect to anyone, and neither did Stokely Hathaway when “Wilma” accepted the open challenge. But will Willow make Jade weep when she becomes the one in 32-1? Or will she only have a fleeting role on #ThatBitchShow?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and it’s time to see who earns some respect!

Jade and Willow tie up, Jade waistlocks and SLAMS Willow! Willow gets right up and fans fire up. They tie up again, Jade powers Willow to a corner, digs into her, but lets off at 4. Jade stomps, uppercuts, then CLUBS Willow. Jade whips corner to corner, Willow handsprings to come back. Willow avoid the boot, but Jade blocks a kick, only for Willow to ENZIGURI! Willow runs, but into a fireman’s carry! Jade squats to show off, but Willow fights free! Sunset flip, TWO! Willow gets around, shoves Jade then runs the other way, but Jade avoids the Pounce! Willow crashes ‘n’ burns, then staggers up into a BOOT!

Willow flops out of the ring, saving herself for the moment. But Jade distracts the ref, and Kiera Hogan stomps away on Willow while AEW goes picture in picture!

Kiera puts Willow in for Jade, Jade drags Willow up, but Willow fires forearms! Willow runs, but Jade sidesteps and sends her tumbling back out! Jade hurries after Willow, CLUBS her and KICKS her against railing. Jade smacks Willow off the apron, talks smack, then whips Willow. Willow reverses and Jade hits railing! Jade slumps down and Kiera fans her off. Jade gets in the ring, Willow follows, but Jade stomps Willow first. Jade kicks Willow against ropes, brings her up to bump her off buckles, and then snapmares to KICK her in the back! Willow writhes, Jade KICKS her in the side! Willow goes to the far side while Jade flexes.

Jade dribbles, runs in, and DUNKS on Willow. Jade says she’ll do one more, and she dribbles again. Jade runs in, but into BOOTS! Willow runs, blocks the punch to CHOP! Jade just frowns so Willow CHOPS her again! That one stings, and then Willow CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS and MACHINE GUN CHOPS in the corner! Willow fires up and she corner clotheslines! Snapmare and Willow climbs, to SHOTGUN dropkick! Cover, TWO! Willow checks, but it was two. Willow brings Jade up to fireman’s carry but Jade clubs free. Jade chicken wings, but Rampage goes to break!

Rampage returns as Willow rolls Jade up! TWO, Willow kicks low and Jade goes to a corner. Willow roars, runs in and back body blocks! Willow rolls, fires up as Jade sits down, Willow CANNONBALLS! Fans fire up and Willow covers, TWO!! Jade survives and Kiera is relieved. Willow is frustrated but she drags Jade up and reels her in to gut wrench. Jade fights free, kicks low, reels Willow in, and swaggers before tucking the arms. PEDIGREE!! But that’s not all! Chicken wings, for JADED!! Cover, Jade wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

Stokely says that title is coming with Jade to the BET Awards, and Jericho says Jade is his Sports Entertainer of the Week! But Jade and Kiera aren’t done with Willow, they celebrate by stomping her down! Kiera hits the STEP-UP LEG DROP! But here comes ATHENA! The Baddies wait on the Fallen Goddess, but she’s already on the top rope! Kiera turns around, THE ECLIP- Er, The O Face! But then Jade BOOTS Athena down! Jade talks trash, drags Athena up and chicken wings, but here comes Kris Statlander! She SMACKS Stokely on the way down before sliding in the ring! Jade bails out, but she is still 33-0! Will Jade have to watch her back with this many women targeting her title?

 

AEW hears from Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh.

Lethal points out the “elephant in the room,” that guys like him, Sonjay & Singh are here every week, every day, putting in the work. “Unlike the ROH World Television Champion, Samoa Joe. What a lazy champion.” But they’re glossing over how they beat up Samoa Joe after his grueling Owen Hart Foundation finals match with Adam Cole. “But speaking of putting in the work,” Lethal continues, “I believe the saying is, ‘You get by with a little help from your friends.’ And with friends like these, our future is very, very bright.”

Sonjay hopes everyone saw Singh’s in-ring debut last week. Singh has ALL of India celebrating. In every city, in every village, they are shouting and dancing and- Singh has them hold on. Singh says they are just getting started. How far will these three go working together like they have?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Forbidden Door!

After the back and forth between these three teams in both AEW and NJPW, we will see FTR VS Roppongi Vice VS The United Empire’s Great-O-Khan & Jeff Cobb, in a WINNERS TAKE ALL TRIPLE THREAT for both the ROH World and IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships! Will Cash & Dax be #TopGuys in three companies? Will the United Empire begin conquering the world? Or will Rocky Romero & Trent Beretta finally taste that sweet, sweet gold?

And as such, Dynamite will have a huge Six Man Tag! Will Ospreay & Aussie Open team up to take on Orange Cassidy & RPG Vice! Which side of this world wrestling war will roll into the Forbidden Door?

 

But wait! There’s more!

Given the interruption and confrontation we saw on Dynamite last Wednesday, this Wednesday will see a star-studded crossover tag match! Jon Moxley teams with Hiroshi Tanahashi to take on Chris Jericho and Lance Archer! Will the Maniac and Ace be able to coexist in order to take out their common enemies? Or will The Wizard and Murderhawk Monster tear them both down just days before Forbidden Door?

 

Mark Henry speaks to tonight’s main eventers.

The World’s Strongest Man starts with bringing up to Darby how it was Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly who were responsible for injuring Sting. Is Darby out for revenge tonight? Darby says Kyle did take out the person closest to Darby in AEW. So tonight, Darby does the same back. Fish is the person closest to Kyle, and tonight, Darby takes him out. Kyle says that’s real mature. He’s just so goth, isn’t he? Yeah, Kyle took out Sting, and he’d do it again. But Darby, you think you’re going to walk into St. Louis and take out Fish all alone? Wow.

Fish says, “Who are we kidding, Darby Allin? You’re going to take me out? Where’re we going? Are we going to Chili’s? Are we going to Outback? Because I mean, let’s face it here, son. Stepping into a wrestling ring with me? Not a good idea, my friend. So take your stupid face-painted BS and sell it somewhere else. I dunno, down the street? Because these two? Uh-uh!” Darby tells Fish, “Tonight, we’re not having a wrestling match. And mark my words, Bobby, by the end of the night… Your leg’s gonna be broken.” Well, it looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will the Relentless One rip into the Infamous One? Or will he end up joining Sting on the sidelines?

Darby Allin VS Bobby Fish!

Darby stands on the corner as part of his entrance, and Fish kicks his legs out! The bell rings to get this on record fast as Fish drags Darby up to put back in the corner. Fish fires off knees, forearms, and then drags Darby back up to get the bad leg. Fish kicks the good leg, Darby stays up using ropes, but Fish DRAGON SCREWS the other leg! Darby flops out of the ring and hobbles, but Fish goes out and runs in to RAM Darby into the apron! Fish lets Darby crawl around the corner, and watches him from across the ring. Fish comes in around the way, but Darby jumps up! Darby still gets clipped, but Fish still runs into railing!

Both men are down from that moment of demolition derby and fans fire up. Darby gets in the ring, aims at Fish, and PLANCHAS! Darby rains down fists, then he gets back in. But Fish grabs at Darby. Darby runs, but Fish scoops to the tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Fans rally, duel, and Fish goes right up the corner to MOONSAULT! But he FLOPS when Darby isn’t there! Fans rally while both men are down. Darby builds speed as Fish bails out, and Darby DIVES! He hits Fish so hard, they hit railing, and fans in the front row might’ve even gotten a footprint of Darby’s on their shirts! The ref checks on everyone and somehow Darby and Fish are okay to continue.

Darby gets up on the apron and he grabs at Fish, but Fish sweeps the legs! Darby tumbles headlong back to the floor! Fans rally while Darby writhes. Fish drags Darby back up to ROCK with forearms and body shots. Fish gets Darby’s leg, another DRAGON SCREW, and Darby ends up hitting railing! Fish taunts the fans in the front row, mean mugs someone just behind them, and then fetches Darby. Fish drags Darby up by his bad leg, then tells fans to move if they don’t want another close-up experience. DRAGON SCREW, and Darby hits railing again! Darby is down in a heap while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Fish is mean mugging fans again while Darby clutches at the railing. Fish talks trash to the fan cosplaying as a ref, but the real ref has Fish back up. Fish has the ref back up so he can get at Darby. The ref tells Fish to back off so Fish gets in the ring. The ring count starts, but Fish goes back out to fetch Darby. Fish brings Darby around to ROCK him with a forearm, then he pushes Darby into the ring. Fish aims from the apron, slingshot senton! Fish taunts the fans, then he drags Darby up to snapmare and cover. ONE, Fish argues it was two, but no, it was one. Fish drags Darby back up, CLUBS him on the neck, then kicks, but Darby ducks!

Darby comes in from behind, but Fish sobats Darby, then SLIDING LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Fish is annoyed but he paces around and looms over Darby. Darby fights off Fish’s grip, kicks at him from the ropes, but Fish stomps Darby down! Fish gets the legs, stomps Darby in the stomach, then soaks up the heat from St. Louis. Darby drags himself to a corner, and Fish digs his knees into him. The ref counts, Fish lets off, and he backs off to taunt more fans while flexing. Darby drags himself up, and he gets Fish with a SLEEPER! But they’re in the ropes! The ref counts, but Fish pulls Darby into the ropes!

Darby lets off and hobbles away. Fish gets in, Darby storms up to him but Fish knees him low first. Fish brings Darby around to snap suplex! Float to the cover, TWO! Fish is annoyed but he drags Darby back up for another snap suplex! Another float but not to cover. Fish drags Darby up again, Darby resists the third suplex, so Fish throws body shots. Road Rager Rampage returns to single picture and Fish suplexes again. Darby shifts to make it a SCORPION DEATH DROP! Fans fire up as a standing count begins. Darby and Fish stir, rise, and stand at 5 of 10. They’re in opposite corners, Darby runs corner to corner to COFFIN SPLASH!

Darby goes again, another COFFIN- NO, Fish catches Darby into a SLEEPER! But Darby climbs up the corner and kicks back to roll Fish to a cover! TWO!! Fish lets go in time, Darby hops on to CODE RED! Cover, TWO! Fish survives again and he bails out, only for Darby to climb! SUPER COFFIN DROP!! Direct hit and both men are down at ringside! The ref checks them again but Darby is already sitting up. Fans rally up, Darby claws at Fish’s face! Darby facelocks, drags Fish up and into the ring, and fans are thunderous for him. Fish TACKLES Darby back out of the ring! They tumble off the apron and to the floor!

Both Darby and Fish are down again, Darby now clutching his head as well as his leg. The ring count climbs, Fish drags Darby up to knee low and RAM into steel steps! The ref again checks on Darby but he’s still in this somehow. Fish drags Darby up and into the ring, then CLUBS away on the bad leg! Fish even uppercuts the leg to hit it from all angles! Fish then stands on the apron to stomp Darby’s back! Fish refreshes the count, brings Darby up and ROCKS him with a forearm. Fans rally for Darby but Fish KICKS the bad leg. Fish shoves Darby back, but Darby boots back! Fish blocks, knees the leg and has an ANKLE LOCK!

Darby grabs the corner, the ref counts because they’re out of bounds as it is, but Fish holds on! Darby uses his leg to reel Fish in and throw elbows at him! Fish still wants the ankle, he tucks the leg, APRON GERMAN SUPLEX!! Darby tumbles and Fish hurries to get him back up. Fish puts Darby in the ring, drags him into the corner to throw body shots. Fish then hoists Darby up top and climbs up after him. Fish throws forearms, then goes to the very top. SUPER FALCON ARROW!! Cover, TWO!?!? Darby escapes, but into a KNEEBAR!! Fish pulls, Darby fights up and has Fish’s legs! LAST SUPPER!! DARBY WINS!!!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Fish is furious! Darby snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, but he’s not out of the deep waters yet! Fish CLOBBERS Darby, drags him to center and rains down forearms! Fans boo, but Fish calls to Kyle! Darby’s revenge is being turned around on him as Kyle has a chair! Fish keeps giving Darby ground ‘n’ pound, but then the lights go out!! Could it be?! YES! IT’S STIIIIIING! He appears right in front of Kyle and it’s like Kyle has seen a ghost! Fish is just as shocked! Kyle hurries to swing the chair, but Sting’s baseball bat finds Kyle’s balls first! Two run homer right there! Sting then takes the chair, and KICKS the bat to hit Kyle again!

Kyle flounders away but now Sting is after Fish! Darby tackles Fish down, and Sting hands him the chair! Darby SMACKS Fish’s leg! And then puts the chair around the leg, just like what Kyle did to Sting! Fish tries to fight free but Darby DECKS him! Darby climbs a corner!! Fans are thunderous for the FULL METAL COFFIN DROP!! Fish writhes as he gets his leg clipped, but Sting adds on! Sting uses the bat for leverage as he YANKS Fish’s leg! Fans are thunderous for “STING! STING! STING!” as The Icon rejoins his protégé. Now that Sting & Darby are reunited, will they look to slay reDRagon?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of Rampage here with it technically being part of Road Rager. Moxley VS Dante being the opener was a bit of a surprise but what a great match out of them. Dante is just getting better and better, but of course Moxley wins. Moxley’s got a lot to build towards, for one, and now has a tag match with Tanahashi that he’ll surely win so both he and The Ace go into Forbidden Door as equals. We got a very good promo out of Keith, Swerve and Team Taz. I was hoping there would be something to address Swerve’s momentary betrayal on Keith, and it seems we’ll get one last match of Keith & Swerve VS Hobbs & Starks, and maybe then we get the full Heel turn from Swerve.

A very good promo between House of Black and Death Triangle to hype up Malakai VS Penta, but with Pac already in the All-Atlantic Fatal 4, I see Malakai winning. Wouldn’t mind seeing Lucha Bros VS Buddy & Brody 2v2 on the side while Pac and Malakai are going for the title. Very fun promo from Hookhausen, and whoever it is NJPW sends, they and Hook are going to have a good match, but I would think Hook wins. It would be nice if this is a sign that AEW is now a choice for Young Lions to go on excursion, though. Very good promo from Lethal, Sonjay & Singh, and great news that the Triple Threat IWGP & ROH tag title match I felt coming is happening. I feel like RPG Vice is there to take the loss, I just can’t be sure who wins.

That rap from Caster, hot damn. And I was not expecting a squash match quite like that, but at least it means Acclaimed Gunn Club is becoming a strong faction. Willow Nightingale got a great showing against Jade Cargill, but I had a feeling Jade was going to win and retain. Athena and Statlander making the saves was good stuff, it still builds to the big tag match I expect before Jade VS Athena for the title. The only disappointing thing from that segment was another example of AEW/TNT not having a sense of when they gotta just stick with the action. Jade goes for chicken wings and I almost though that was going to end during commercial.

Another great main event promo and another awesome main event match. Though I will say, one of these days, Darby’s tope is going to take him right into the crowd. He just keeps ramping up how hard he hits it, it was perhaps just luck that Darby’s foot didn’t hit that fan in the face. I figured Darby would win, but what a great surprise that Sting made his return. I feel like we are going to get Sting & Darby VS reDRagon, but I would love if we also got Darby VS Kyle II as a way to lead into that. Also Jericho was mentioning Sting’s bat compared to his bat, Floyd, so I suddenly want the JAS to feud with Darby and Sting so we can get baseball bat VS baseball bat, Jericho VS Sting.

My Score: 8.7/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (8/9/22)

Best Friends get Dark!

Published

on

AEW Dark 2

Whatever.

Before entering the AEW Trios Championship Tournament, Best Friends are in action, in separate matches! Will tonight’s Dark be Freshly Squeezed?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • 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.

QUICK NOTES

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?

QUICK NOTES

One thing to note is that Parker Boudreaux has Ari Daivari in his corner. I wonder if the Trust Busters is becoming a trio, Parker joining Daivari and Slim J. Then in Kiera and Leila teaming up, this is the one time where “Can they coexist?” should be a thing since The Baddies still haven’t fully accepted Leila. And of course, the Lucha Brothers will beat The Wingmen to get momentum going into their Lucha Rules Tornado Tag with Rush & Andrade.
