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.

Dante wristlocks, Moxley rolls and slips through to wrench and hammerlock. Moxley headlocks, hits a takeover, and the fans are dueling as Dante keeps his shoulders up. Dante fights up, powers out, but gets run over! Dante hurries away to a corner but Moxley waits on him. Fans fire up, the two reset and circle again. 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. Fans rally, Dante powers up but Moxley holds onto the headlock! Dante keeps trying, gets free, and then runs to RANA!

Moxley staggers but goes after Dante. Dante jumps over Moxley to mule kick, then fire off kick after kick to the leg! Moxley ROCKS Dante with a right, then whips him to ropes. 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! Dante whips corner to corner, Moxley reverses and Dante tumbles into the corner hard! Moxley drags Dante up by his hair and scoops for a BACKBREAKER! Dante writhes while AEW goes picture in picture.

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!! Dante gets that arm up in time and fans fire up! Moxley rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Moxley then runs to SLIDING- NO, Dante ducks, rolls back, and headscissors Moxley out!

Dante reaches out for ropes, goes up the corner, but Moxley lets him go to CLUB him on the back!

Moxley climbs up behind Dante, claws at his face, then drags Dante up. Dante fights the half nelson with elbows! Dante is free, and he cravats Moxley, for a SUPER SLICED BREAD!! Cover, TWO!! Moxley survives and Dante is stunned! Fans rally as both men rise, and Dante throws a KICK! Moxley KICKS back, so Dante KICKS again! They go KICK for KICK, then forearm for forearm! Then forearm for KICK! Dante gets the edge, but Moxley KICKS back! Moxley underhooks but Dante fights free. Moxley blocks a kick and flips Dante, but Dante lands on his feet, into a CUTTER! Moxley stands Dante up, runs, but Dante dodges to sunset flip! TWO!!

Dante is furious, but Moxley CLOBBERS him! Cover, TWO!! Dante survives and Moxley is a bit annoyed. Moxley sits Dante up for more HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Dante is all but a rag doll right now, and Moxley ties him up in a HAMMERLOCK CLUTCH! Dante is caught, he taps out! Moxley wins!

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

Omega has his main event match with AAA rival El Hijo del Vikingo, but who went after his best friends?


Six Man Tag: Orange Cassidy, Darby Allin & Sting VS The Superbad Squad!

Freshly Squeezed is still a champion, as he retained the now AEW International Championship in Canada. But now, a familiar foe is rearing his Superbad head once again. Kip Sabian is bringing Butcher & Blade with him to go after Cassidy while his Best Friends are down and out. But will Cassidy’s new pals be more than enough to turn back the Superbad Squad?

The trios sort out and Cassidy starts against Kip. Fans rally and chant for “FRESHLY SQUEEZED!” but Kip copies Cassidy putting his hands up. Cassidy rushes in, Kip gets around and waistlocks to headlock. Cassidy powers out, headlocks back, but Kip powers out, only for Cassidy to slip around and headlock again. Kip powers out, things speed up and Cassidy arm-drags, but Kip cartwheels through! Kip mocks Cassidy, Cassidy rushes in but Kip dumps him out.

Cassidy mocks Kip, then puts his hands up. To put his hands in his pockets! Kip rushes in, Cassidy dodges and SHOTGUNS! Cassidy kips up and fans fire up, but Kip scrambles away to tag in Butcher. Butcher eggs Cassidy on, but fans cheer as Cassidy tags in STIIIING! The Icon steps to Andy Williams and Andy talks trash. Butcher swings a forearm, but Sting just brushes it off! Butcher throws another forearm, but then Sting counter punches! And back hands! And punches again! Sting kicks low, ROCKS Butcher, then fires off in the corner. But Butcher claws at the eyes! The fans boo but Butcher BITES Sting’s forehead!

Winners: Sting, Darby Allin & Orange Cassidy

A huge win for the unlikeliest of trios, and Cassidy adorns Sting with the sunglasses! As for Darby, he is looking at the Double or Nothing banner. The Relentless One wants at MJF and the gold, will he be living it up in Las Vegas?


AEW shares backstage footage from last week.

After having his “Re-Bar-Mitzvah” interrupted by Darby Allin, Sammy Guevara and “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, it was obvious Maxwell Jacob Friedman was mad. He curses up a storm, then says he is the world champion! But Darby Allin says the world title means much more than money and fame. It is him being him. And Jack Perry, for himself, his family, and everyone who supported him all this time, he is going to become champion on his own. Sammy says that the world title is his destiny! He said so since episode ONE of Dynamite that he is going to be world champion. But MJF says that’s not how it works! You don’t waltz up to the champ and call your shot, you EARN it!

MJF has beaten Darby, Sammy and JB once each in 1v1 competition in their AEW careers, and he tells them they have to become #1 contender. Good luck trying, because all three of them SUCK! Sammy says he’ll win as many matches as it takes to get that belt off MJF. JB says that you can check the record books. He’s already won more matches than any of them. Darby says he’s beaten Sammy and he’s beaten JB, so he will stop at nothing to make sure that MJF is no longer champion. Who of these three Young Pillars of AEW will be THE one that challenges MJF at Double or Nothing?


AEW takes a closer look at tonight’s main event dream match.

Excalibur narrates that, “In 2021, there was no one hotter in professional wrestling than Kenny Omega. Known as ‘The Belt Collector,’ Omega won championships around the world, including in Mexico, where he won the AAA Mega Championship. At the same time, El Hijo del Vikingo was quickly establishing himself as one of the premier luchadors in all of Mexico. A match was made for December 2021: Vikingo, Omega, for the first time ever for the AAA Mega Championship. Unfortunately, Omega’s injuries at Full Gear were so severe, they required surgery, keeping him out of action for nearly a year.

“Now, with Omega back at 100%, the dream match is on for tonight. Kenny Omega, El Hijo del Vikingo, live!” Who will come out as truly the best today?


AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Gunns VS Top Flight!

They may not be the Young Bucks, the Lucha Brothers or the Hardy Boyz, but Austin & Colten are the brother tag team reigning over AEW. But will they soon find out they are not nearly as good as they think they are? Or will the Gunns cause the Coldest Tag Team in the Game to melt down?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who is really the better brother duo!

The teams sort out, Austin starts against Dante, and Independence taunts the “ASS~ BOYS!” Austin tunes that out, knuckle locks with Dante, and then he CHOPS! Austin goes up and up, but then says no no no. Austin hops down, swings on Dante, but misses! Dante knuckle locks and CHOPS, then he goes up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Dante kips up and fans fire up! Austin tags Colten, but Dante arm-drags Colten down! Tag to Darius, the Martins double whip and speed things up, to then DROPKICK Colten down! Austin runs in, but into a DROPKICK! The Gunns regroup, but the Martins double clothesline them up and out!

Fans fire up as Dante says they’re getting those belts. The “ASS~ BOYS!” regroup and Colten slides back in. Tag to Austin, he and Dante circle again, and Austin gets around to shove Dante to ropes. Dante BLASTS Colten before the cheap shot! Dante then goes up and over Austin, only for Austin to pull hair! The ref reprimands, but misses Colten HOTSHOT Dante down! Fans boo as Austin stomps and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Austin whips Dante out of the ring, then taunts Darius to distract the ref. Colten stomps away on Dante! Colten puts Dante in before anyone notices, and Austin bumps Dante off buckles. Tag to Colten, he stomps Dante, but lets off as the ref reprimands. Colten stomps some more, he and Austin taunt Independence and Darius, then Colten drags Dante up. Colten DECKS Dante, then mocks the fans. Colten ROCKS Dante, ROCKS him again, then suplexes. Cover, TWO! Colten stays between the Martin brothers, drags Dante over and bumps him off buckles. Tag to Austin, he stomps Dante now, then digs his boots in.

The ref reprimands but Austin mocks the fans rallying for Dante. Austin lets off and Colten CHOKES Dante! Colten lets off Dante before he gets caught, and Austin tags Colten in. Colten drags Dante up, whips him to ropes, and the Gunns body shot, knee lift and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Colten stays between the Martins again, drags Dante up and whips him to the corner. Colten runs in but Dante dodges the splash! Austin tags in and hurries to stop Dante. Austin shoves Dante down, but Dante fakes Austin out to go under! Austin still grabs a leg, tags Colten back in, and the Gunns double back suplex! But Dante lands on his feet!

Dynamite returns to single picture, Dante goes over Austin, over Colten, and tags in Darius! Darius rallies on the Gunns and fans fire up! Darius hits an atomic drop on Austin, then LARIATS Colten! Mule kick for Austin, and Darius whips him at Colten. Austin reverses but Darius uses that to UPPERCUT Colten! Austin runs back in, but is sent into Colten! Darius uses Austin to get up and ENZIGURI Colten! Darius then GERMAN SUPLEXES Austin, and STANDING SPANISH FLIES Colten! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Darius drags Colten up. Tag to Dante, Top Flight double whip, but Colten ducks and tags Austin!

Dante kicks Colten away, Darius DIVES onto Colten to hit him into railing! Dante GAMANGIRIS Austin, goes up and up and NOSEDIVES!! Cover, Colten breaks it!! Fans boo but Colten was within the rules. Wait, is that THE KINGDOM!? Mike Bennett & Matt Taven are mugging Darius over their ROH losses! But Dante FLIES out onto them! Direct hit and fans fire up! Dante hurries back up, springboards again, but Austin gets under!

Colten gets in, Dante runs into a 3:10 TO YUMA!! Cover, the Gunns win!

Winners: The Gunns, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

Fans boo that the Gunns win, but Darius is pissed at The Kingdom! Darius chases off Mike & Matt, will Top Flight get revenge in ROH? As for the Gunns, they hear FTR coming! Fans fire up again as Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler step out on stage with mics in their hands! Colten gets a mic to have the FTR music stop. Colten says no one wants to hear that song and no one wants to see FTR. Fans boo because they disagree. FTR says they’re not here to fight. They’re here to talk business. Well, no one wants to hear you talk! The Gunns don’t like or respect FTR. And guess what? FTR are LOSERS! They lost three sets of belts, and lost to the Gunns!

There is nothing FTR can say or offer them to get a rematch. NOTHING! Nothing? So like, if they said they’ll never challenge the Gunns again for those titles should they lose- NO! Do you not hear what Austin is saying, “you hillbillies? NOTHING! There’s NOTHING! What do you have to offer?! NOTHING!!” Then if the Gunns wanna prove their first win wasn’t a fluke, should they win against FTR again, FTR will never tag together in AEW again. Oh, the break up? So heartbreaking! LOOK AT HIS FACE! NOTHING!! Okay, okay. Dax says if FTR can’t beat the Gunns to win the AEW World Tag Team Championships, FTR will just quit AEW.

Fans boo, but it seems that got through to the Gunns. If the Gunns beat FTR again, FTR leaves AEW forever? Yes, that’s what Dax said. Well, in that case, deal! The Gunns and FTR shake on it, but then Gunns literally spin in FTR’s faces! The Gunns run for it, but the match is coming either way. Will the “ASS~ BOYS!” get their asses kicked? Or will they be the team that banishes FTR from AEW?


Backstage interview with Jade Cargill, Leila Grey & Mark Sterling.

Renee Paquette is with the AEW TBS Champion, her Last Baddie Standing and her legal representation. Renee says that Taya Valkyrie is All Elite now, and she has her eye on the TBS title. What is Jade’s reaction to that? “Renee, cut the sh*t. We had this Taya girl come in and interrupt my moment to answer an open challenge that was already closed, baby girl. And then, had the audacity to use my finisher. Mark, tie this up.” Sterling has a document, it is a Cease & Desist order. This will be sent to Taya Valkyrie, telling Taya that she is no longer allowed to use the chicken wing facebuster, which is also Jade’s move, as her finisher.

Leila says that she should deliver this document to Taya personally, this Saturday on Rampage. Because she has a few words of her own for Taya. So that’s an official challenge? Yes. Welcome to #ThatBitchShow. Will La Wera Loca have a jaded response to this frivolous lawsuit?


No Disqualifications: Hook VS Stokely Hathaway!

An injured arm turned into a suspension turned into a settlement turned into a high stakes bet that The Firm lost, and now it has resulted in this match. And though Ethan Page, Matt Hardy, Isiah Kassidy, Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey see Stokely off, they can’t stay per the stipulations of the bet. As the introduction says, “He’s not as large as the men he represents, he has the heart of a lion and the wisdom of an owl.” But will any of that help him defeat The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?

As Hook makes his entrance, Stokely grabs the mic to say, “Whoa, whoa, whoa! I’ve got some breaking news! I spoke to Dr. Simpson (he means Sampson) earlier, and he said I am not medically cleared to compete. I know, I know. I wanted to so bad. And I would also, what a coinky-dink, announce that I am retiring.” What? Stokely thanks all 12 of his fands, God bless! Justin, here, doctor’s note. Make it official. Justin takes the note, and it reads, “He is SICK.” Justin says that with all due respect, that’s a receipt for Wingstop. The ref RIPS the receipt! And the bell rings! Fans fire up and Hook is ready, so Stokely bails!

Stokely runs around the ring, out to the crowd, but Hook pursues! Fans fire up as Hook chases Stokely down, drags him back, CLUBS him, then brings him over to KNEE and TOSS! Stokely ends up at ringside again and fans are thunderous! Hook stalks Stokely, Stokely runs in to UPPERCUT, but Stokely bounces off of Hook! Stokely scurries away, gets back up, and runs in, but into a leg capture! EL CAMINO to the floor! Fans fire up as Hook drags Stokely up, puts him in the ring, and then looks under the ring. Fans fire up more, because here comes a SPARE GUARD RAIL! Hook puts that in the ring while the Firm can only watch.

Hardy tries to calm the group down, Stokely can take care of himself with things getting “hardcore.” Ethan says no he can’t, they didn’t practice any of the hardcore stuff! Stokely bails out again but Hook puts the railing in a corner. Hook drags Stokely up but Stokely BLASTS Hook with the fire extinguisher! Fans boo but Stokely gets a chair! Stokely smacks the steps a couple times, he says, “I’m not a killer, but don’t push me! That’s Tupac.” Stokely hurries in, fans rally up, and Stokely swings, but Hook blocks! Hook BOOTS Stokely, then SMACKS him on the back! And again! And again! And again!

Hook throws the chair aside, Stokely is barely moving! But Hook drags Stokely up to EL CAMINO onto the railing! The railing BENDS! Hook drags Stokely off the railing, covers, but then pulls him up at TWO! Hook wants REDRUM!!! Stokely is OUT, Hook wins!

Winner: Hook, by submission

The FTW Champion could’ve ended it sooner, but he chose to teach Stokely a lesson: Do not get on Hook’s bad side. Hardy says Ethan must avenge Stokely! Ethan can beat Hook! Hardy is gonna get a match made right now! All Ego is ready, but will he be ready when they #SendHook?


Adam Cole is here!

Fans fire up as the Undisputed One heads to the ring. Naturally, everyone joins in on the “BOOM!” and “ADAM COLE BAYBAY!” Cole gets the mic and says, “Wow. Hey, hey, I think I know the answer to this, but who’s ready for Storytime with Adam Cole, baybay?” Everyone cheers! Cole continues with, “Seven days. We are just seven days away from me making my in-ring return here in AEW. And listen, I know I’ve talked a ton about my struggles and what I went through, but as far as how I’m feeling right now? Guys, I feel freaking great. I have never been more ready, never been more prepared, to get back in this ring, doing what I love, and that is wrestle for AEW.”

Fans are fired up, and Cole knows everyone has questions. “The biggest one being: Who is my opponent going to be on March 29th?” Fans echo, “Who? Who? Who?” Cole starts to speak, but here comes Daniel Garcia! Fans boo as Red Death has the mic to say, “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Who’s ready for Storytime with Daniel Garcia, baybay?” Garcia knows Cole’s been gone awhile, so here’s an update on a few things. Fans tell Garcia to STFU already but Garcia says since Cole’s been gone, Garcia’s become a real veteran in AEW. All the boys in the back respect him so much that he is a locker room leader!

Fans boo more but Garcia says as locker room leader, it is his duty to come out here to not only welcome Cole back, but to put him in his place, too. Garcia says Cole may not remember, but here’s an update on what Garcia’s been doing the last nine months while Cole was home, “playing stupid video games on Twitch.” Cole smirks but allows it. Brody King: beat him! Ricky Starks: beat him! Bryan Danielson: Garcia beat him, too. Garcia’s main-evented more AEW programming over the past year than anyone else on the roster! Garcia is the lifeblood that pumps through this company. And he’s to respect Cole? To welcome Cole back? Where’s Garcia’s warm welcome?

Where is Garcia’s respect when he’s been here, been doing this, and proved himself as one of the best pro-wrest- Oops. Freudian slip there? Garcia corrects himself, “Sports entertainers on the planet today!” That’s what Garcia is! So what makes Cole so special? “What makes me special? When they ring the freakin’ bell, that’s what makes me special! That’s what makes m e special.” Cole admits he likes Garcia. Garcia is really, really good. And some day, he could be leading the charge in AEW. The problem is the company he keeps.

“The Jericho Appreciation Society, they’ve done a great job of giving you this false sense of security. This overconfidence, which sometimes is good, and sometimes is bad. But let me remind you, even me not wrestling for nine months, I am still Adam Cole Baybay. I am a multi-time world champion. I have traveled the globe, fought and beat some of the very best! As a matter of fact, while I was sitting at home for nine months, I was wondering if I’d ever get the chance to wrestle again, hoping, praying, willing to do anything for a second chance. And looks like I found that second chance.”

Fans fire up and Cole says if Garcia is crazy enough to want the match, then dammit, he’s on! Adam Cole VS Daniel Garcia, first-time-ever, next week on Dynamite! But Cole will remind Garcia of something: “This is not just my return match; this is a statement. It’s a statement to the entire locker room that one of the best damn pro-wrestlers on the planet is BACK, baybay.” Fans are fired up for “ADAM COLE! ADAM COLE!” Cole hopes Garcia realizes what he’ sin for. Because Cole promises next week will be a great night. A great night for Cole, for the fans, but for Garcia… Not so much. “See you next week, Garcia. BOOM.”

Cole is ready, Garcia is ready, but will the Dragonslayer stay a great sports enner-tay-ners? Or will the pro-wrestler in him rise to the surface against one of the greatest pro-wrestlers alive today?


Alex Marvez is outside The Elite’s locker room.

Marvez can hear a conversation going on inside, and he steps inside. Callis and Omega are talking, and Callis wants Marvez to hold on. What is Omega’s concern here? Omega’s concern is that his best friends left in an ambulance! He should’ve gone with them! Callis says he sent Cutler and Nakazawa with them. Omega has a match tonight! Hear Callis out. He’s a glass half full kind of guy. Injuries happen, but hear him out. The Bucks going to the hospital might’ve been the best thing for Omega and Callis. It allows for focus! Omega is in a singles match, the God of Pro-Wrestling is back! “Those kids will be fine in a few months.”

Callis now has Marvez join in. “Kenny Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo is gonna blow the roof off! The God of Pro-Wrestling is BACK, and it starts tonight on Dynamite! Now get out.” Marvez throws this back to ringside, but is Callis only thinking of his benefit, not Kenny’s?


Jon Moxley w/ The Blackpool Combat Club VS Stu Grayson w/ The Dark Order!

The Maniac, along with Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, have torn into the Dark Order from Silver to Reynolds to Evil Uno. They did all that to anger Hangman Page, but they’ve also angered #PlayerTwo! Moxley may be #ForgedByCombat, but will he survive someone born and bred for combat?

The bell rings and Stu RAMS Moxley into a corner! Fans fire up as Stu fires off on Moxley but lets off as the ref counts. Moxley turns things around to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Moxley pie faces Stu, but Stu turns things around to CHOP back! Stu stalks Moxley to another corner, KNEES him and CLUBS him, then stalks him to a third corner. Moxley kicks low, ROCKS Stu with a forearm, then another, then digs his boots in. The ref counts, Moxley steps off at 4, then Moxley drags Stu up to headlock takeover. Stu keeps his shoulders up, the Dark Order coaches him up but Moxley gets a knuckle lock cover. TWO as Stu gets his left arm up.

Moxley pushes the hand down, covers, TWO as Stu gets the right arm up. Moxley pushes that arm down again, covers, ONE as Stu gets his left arm back up. Stu fights to his feet but Moxley kicks low.

Moxley reels Stu in for a SAIDO! Stu staggers up but then flops out to the apron. Moxley runs to BLAST Stu off and to the barriers! Moxley flips Stu off while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Yuta & Claudio taunt Stu as the ring count climbs. The Dark Order coaches Stu up and he gets in the ring at 5 of 10, but Moxley is right on him. Stu throws a forearm, then another, and another, and another! But Moxley ROCKS Stu with just one! Stu falls over and Claudio yawns. It seems this isn’t competitive enough for the Swiss Superman. Moxley has the legs, he stomps Stu in the stomach, then ties the legs up. But Stu fights back with fists! Moxley still powers Stu into the TEXAS CLOVERLEAF! Stu endures as Moxley sits deep, and he reaches out to the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Moxley lets off at 4.

Cover, TWO!! Stu is still in this, but Moxley has the knuckle locks back. Dynamite returns to single picture as Moxley rains down the DRAGON STOMPS! Cover, TWO!! Stu hangs tough again, but Moxley just taunts him.

Fans rally, Stu rises, and Moxley KICKS him in the chest! And KICKS him again! Moxley eggs Stu on, then KICKS him more! Moxley SLAPS Stu! Stu snarls and stands up to fire off forearms! Stu whips, Moxley reverses but Stu CLOBBERS him! Stu dodges, tilt-o-whirls and REVERSE DDTS! Then he rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Fans fire up as Stu gives Moxley a taste of his own medicine! And then the SIDE EFFECT! SPRINGBOARD MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO!! Moxley survives and Stu grows frustrated. Stu hurries up a corner, but Yuta distracts! Fans boo but the Dark Order storm up on the BCC!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

The Dark Order hurry into the ring and Moxley backs off, there won’t be any extracurriculars here. But will the Dark Order ever get payback on the mean SOBs in the BCC?


Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.

Renee says she can feel the frustration coming off The Absolute. The back ‘n’ forth with him and Juice Robinson, where do they stand? You tell him! Starks is “sick and tired of talking back and forth. No action, all talk.” Starks doesn’t wanna stand around, take time off his vacation, just to say Juice, he doesn’t like that you attacked him from behind. That’s cool and all, but whatever! How about this, though? Saturday Night Rampage, Starks is done talking. If Juice wants to face him man to man, then he can find Starks on Rampage! If not, just stop! Starks is over it, he is so sick of it! This is the craziest thing he’s been a part of his whole life!

Starks is issuing the open challenge to Juice. If Juice accepts it or not, is a man or not, Starks doesn’t give a damn anymore. The Absolute will be waiting, but will the Booster oblige?

Toni Storm w/ The Outcasts VS Skye Blue!

The Lightning From Down Under has been striking down “spoiled rookies” again and again, but in the Dark. Will she do so again in the spotlight of Dynamite? Or will Skye roll the Storm away?

The bell rings and Storm BLASTS Skye with a forearm! Then she stomps a mudhole into Skye in the corner! The ref counts, Storm lets off but she grins and soaks up the heat. Soho & Saraya mock Skye, then Storm bumps her off buckles., Skye elbows back, fires forearms in return, and the fans fire up! But Storm knees low! Storm whips Skye, Skye kicks back!

Saraya & Soho are also frustrated, they rally for Storm but the fans rally for Skye. Saraya tells the fans to shut up! Skye runs, hops on, but Storm shrugs her off! Skye SUPERKICKS! Skye runs, into a THESZ PRESS! Storm rains down fists, then she snarls as she stands back up. Storm gets the legs, but Skye kicks her away!

Skye runs in, only for Storm to spin her around! Storm uses the ropes, TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and fans fire up! Saraya is furious but the ref says the count was fair. Skye goes to a corner but Storm says kiss this. SWEET HIP- NO, Skye picks the ankle! Skye KNEES Storm, runs, avoids Soho’s swipe, and she hits CODE BLUE!! But Soho is still distracting the ref!! Skye would’ve had this if not for Soho! Skye gets in Soho’s face, swings at her, but Storm runs in! Skye sends Storm into Soho, rolls and bridges, TWO!!! Storm stands, into a BOOT! Skye full nelsons, Storm arm-drags free to SHOTGUN Skye down!

Saraya says Storm has this now! Storm says kiss this, and here comes SWEET HIP MUSIC!! GERMAN SUPLEX, and then STORM ZERO!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall

The Outcasts with the assist, but now they bring out the spray paint! Fans boo as the Outcast scare off the ref, then surround Skye! But here comes Riho and Willow! Just like last week, Riho has the pipe!! Riho runs the Outcast off and warns them. The Outcasts leave for now, having gotten the win. Will Riho, Willow and Skye start thinking of sticking together from now on?


The AEW medical staff checks on Stu Grayson.

They’re working on his left arm, where did they feel it pop? But then Moxley sneaks up to say, “It’s just business.” And he puts on the SLEEPER!! Claudio & Yuta TOSS the medics aside! Stu is all alone as Moxley chokes him out, then SMACKS him off a trunk! The BCC give Stu the icepack back then leave, what will Hangman & the Dark Order have to say about this?


Kenny Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo!

The AAA Mega Championship match that was meant to happen in December of 2021 was denied because of injury and misfortune. But now we are all fortunate enough to have this match happen here! “HE was the longest reigning Mega Champion at 765 days, 292 days more than El Hijo del Vikingo. HE never lost that title. HE is undefeated in singles matches in Mexico and also on Dynamite. Many people say HE is also undefeated at life. HE is often complimented on his accomplishments, matches, chiseled physique and hair, yet he is personally proud of his win-loss record in Independence, Missouri, which is better than his record of 1-1 in… NOOOORTH CAROLINA~!

“He arrives tonight after his 833 mile journey from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Weighing 224 pounds, HE is…! KENNY! OOOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEGAAAAAA~!” The fans go wild for the Cleaner, the Best Bout Machine, and Don Callis’ God of Pro-Wrestling, but will Omega prove he is better than the Mega Champion?

But as Omega makes his way down the ramp, El Hijo del Vikingo DIVES onto him! Fans fire up, EHDV throws off his cape, then he runs again, to FLY! Direct hit again and Independence is thunderous! EHDV puts Omega in the ring, springboards and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Omega ends up in a corner, EHDV runs in to clothesline! EHDV fires off forearms, but Omega turns it around to fire them back! The ref wants them to let off, this isn’t a match yet! Omega rains down fists, lets off, and now the bell rings! Fans are thunderous as Omega stomps EHDV down. Omega drags EHDV up, whips him corner to corner, but EHDV slips out to the apron!

Omega hits buckles, then EHDV ENZIGURIS! And GAMANGIRIS! EHDV climbs up, and jumps to IMPOLODER DRAGONRANA! Omega goes flying, then staggers up into the SCREW HIGH KICK! Omega’s on the ropes, EHDV runs to DOUBLE KNEE him through the ropes! Omega falls to the floor, EHDV refreshes the count, and fans say “This is Awesome!” EHDV SHOOTING STAR PRESSES to the floor! A bit double-edged, but fans lose their minds! Callis protests, the ring count climbs, but EHDV puts Omega in the ring. EHDV aims, slingshots and then springboards to 450 SPLASH! Cover, TWO!!

Omega goes to a corner, EHDV runs in to GAMANGIRI again! Omega staggers away, EHDV pursues but Omega CHOPS! And CHOPS again! EHDV falls over but Omega stalks him to a corner. Omega brings EHDV up to JAB! And JAB! fans rally and duel, Omega drags EHDV up to whip. Omega scoops EHDV for a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Omega drags EHDV back up fast, to fisherman BUSTER! Cover, TWO! EHDV hangs tough and Omega is frustrated but the fans are loving this. Omega stalks EHDV to the ropes, scrapes him to the apron, and then Omega goes out to follow EHDV.

Omega CLUBS EHDV, and whips him hard into barriers! EHDV falls in a heap, but Omega goes looking under the ring. Omega brings out a TABLE! Fans fire up for that, and Omega stands that table up near the ring. The ref reprimands, this isn’t a Tables match or anything like that. But fans chant, “WE WANT TABLES!” as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Omega drags EHDV up, puts him in the ring, and Omega storms up to scoop and BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Omega clamps on with an armlock and chinbar, but he also fishhooks EHDV’s face! The ref reprimands, Omega lets off, but then pulls on EHDV’s hair! The ref counts but Omega lets off at 4. Omega looms over EHDV, stomps him, stomps him more, then springboard stomps! Omega drags EHDV around to KNEE him in the side! And again! Cover, TWO! EHDV hangs tough but Omega just snarls. Omega drags EHDV up to CHOP him back down! Omega drags EHDV up again to CLUB him back down!

Omega drags EHDV up at the ropes, ROCKS him with a right hand, then ROCKS him again! And again! And again! The ref reprimands and counts, Omega lets off, but then Omega CHOKES EHDV with his foot! Dynamite returns, the fans boo and the ref counts, but Omega lets off at 4 again. Omega ROCKS EHDV again, JABS him, then whips him to ropes. EHDV ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl RANA! Omega goes to the apron, fans fire up as EHDV pursues! EHDV ROCKS Omega, but Omega tomahawk chops back! EHDV CHOPS, but Omega CHOPS! EHDV CHOPS back, so Omega BOOTS him! Omega runs in, goes up, and he MONKEY FLIPS EHDV on the apron!

EHDV falls to the floor while fans lose minds over how tight that one was. Omega drags EHDV up to the apron, and he grins as he looks at the table he set up. Omega drags EHDV up, the ref reprimands but Omega full nelsons! EHDV slips free to GAMANGIRI again! EHDV goes up top, balances on the post, and FLYING DRAGONRANAS!! Fans are thunderous as Omega hits the floor! Omega flounders into the ring, EHDV shoves him further in. Fans say “This is Awesome!” as both men go to corners.

EHDV climbs up after Omega, fans fire up again as they start to brawl! Omega HEADBUTTS, reels EHDV in, and SUPER POWER- STEINER!!! EHDV reverses just in time, Omega clutches his head! EHDV goes to the ropes, stands from the middle and PHOENIX SPLASHES in!!! Cover, TWO?!?! Omega survives by nanoseconds!! Independence is electric as both men rise up! They hope these two “FIGHT FOREVER!” but it has to end somehow! EHDV throws a forearm, a SOBAT, and then he runs to springboard, into a POWERBOMB!! And then another POWERBOMB! Roll through and V-TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO!!!

Omega is furious as EHDV survives! Omega slashes his throat, drags EHDV up, and he full nelsons for a SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Omega snarls, he puts EHDV on the ropes and takes aim. BANG and V-TRIGGER!! But that’s not the end of it! Omega drags EHDV up, deadweight as he is, and Electric Chair Lifts! But EHDV throws down fists! EHDV hops down, UPPERCUTS, then goes up and up to FLYING POISON-RANA!!! Omega tumbles to the apron, and EHDV crawls over to push him onto the table! EHDV builds speed while fans fire up, and he goes up to ESCALARA 630 SENTON through the table!!!!

Independence is volcanic for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” while Callis is freaking out! Both men are down in the wreckage as the ring count starts. EHDV crawls away at 3 of 10, Omega finally stirs at 4. Both men drag themselves up at 6, stand at “OCHO!” And both men slide in at 9! EHDV covers, TWO!!! Omega is still in this and EHDV is beside himself! Fans rally up, both men rise again, and EHDV throws a haymaker! Omega gives it back, they go back and forth, faster and faster! They go forearm for forearm, stand up, and keep throwing shots! EHDV gets the edge, SOBATS, runs, into a V-TRIGGER!!

Omega whips, EHDV rolls up and SUNSET FLIP BOMBS! TWO?!?!? Omega narrowly escapes again and even HE is shocked! But EHDV hurries to a corner and climbs up top! Omega flounders in the drop zone, EHDV 630 SENTONS but FLOPS as Omega moves!! EHDV flounders up, into a V-TRIGGER!!! Omega drags EHDV up, Electric Chair Lifts, ONE WINGED ANGEL!!!! Cover, OMEGA WINS!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall

This was a dream match the moment it was made, but this became an all-time classic by the end! Tony Schiavone joins Callis and Omega in the ring to say this was an incredible match. Omega is back in singles competition, and that was one for the ages! Omega thanks Schiavone for that. The more time goes by, the more he wonders if he can still do this kind of stuff for the fans. Wait, wait! THE BCC JUMPS OMEGA!! Moxley, Claudio & Yuta all mug Omega, and fans boo while Callis can only shout at the ref to stop this! The BCC stand Omega up so they can throw body shots and haymakers!

Fans continue to boo, but wait! Sirens? An ambulance has returned? For who? Wait, HANGMAN is driving it!! The Cowboy has a 2×4, with nails in it! Fans are going nuts for “COWBOY SH*T!” while the BCC stomp away on Omega. But here comes Hangman, wood in hand! The BCC decide to bail! Callis checks on Omega but the damage has been done. Hangman wants Moxley to get his ass back in here, but he stays back. Callis tries to calm Hangman down, but he almost gets 2×4 to the face! Callis keeps pulling at Hangman’s arm to hold him back, but Hangman shakes free and Callis falls right down! Omega comes to, and misunderstands why Callis is down!

Callis blames Hangman but Hangman says he didn’t do anything to Don! Omega and Hangman argue, Callis cowers behind Omega, and Omega takes Callis’ side. Fans boo, but is this just Callis keeping Omega all to himself?

My Thoughts:

A great episode of Dynamite, but it already feels like they’re gonna keep things going until Double or Nothing, no big thing for April. We got a great promo out of the Four Young Pillars, and MJF is making the other three run the #1 contender race like he did Bryan Danielson from now until, I dunno, probably May 3rd so that May can focus on building MJF VS his challenger. Hard to say who it’ll be, but Darby’s off to a good start with that great Six Man Tag. Darby, Sting and Cassidy made an eclectic but great combination, especially with Sting borrowing some Freshly Squeezed tactics. And Cassidy’s International Championship card is open to just about anyone at this point.

Really good tag title match, but I should’ve figured shenanigans would help The Gunns retain. The Kingdom and Top Flight are solidly ROH Tag title contenders with #ReachForTheSky needing teams. Plus, The Gunns’ real story is with FTR, who came back to have a really good promo with them. Gunns VS FTR, Titles VS AEW contracts could honestly go either way. There’s a lot of talk out there of FTR going back to WWE since it’s under HHH right now, so this move could be how FTR exits AEW, but this could also be what guarantees FTR staying. Either way, this is going to be some really big stuff for the titles.

Good promo from Jade and her group, and you do have to appreciate Sterling’s gimmick of bringing about frivolous lawsuits on behalf of people to poke fun at wrestling tropes. The security guards finally got justice, even though they also got crushed by Wardlow, and now finishers that are exactly the same but with different names are being questioned. Pretty sure Leila loses the match and Taya tears up that document, though. Then it’ll be about who hits the chicken wing facebuster first to win that title. Jade has done an amazing job being an undefeated inaugural TBS Champion, but now is the time to move on to someone else so Jade can move on to the top title.

Great segment out of Hook, Stokely and The Firm. Great show from Stokely with trying to weasel out of this, then trying to run away from this, but of course he gets thrown around. Awesome use of spare guard railing, though. I figured Hook VS Ethan was going to be how this wraps up, can’t wait to see how that goes. And I appreciate Starks getting a little meta on the bad pacing of feuds. Starks VS Juice for Rampage, if it happens, will be great stuff, and maybe shenanigans helps Juice win to keep this going. Though, I feel like Starks and Juice could each be doing something better than spinning their wheels with each other. Give me Starks VS Hobbs and Orange VS Juice for those respective titles.

Speaking of which, only the second QTV segment and I’m just done with it. But they did point out the weird logic of Penta not being out there with Fenix last week. Penta VS Hobbs will probably go the same as Fenix VS Hobbs did, and Wardlow will come back for revenge. Also, another wrestling trope that needs poking at: Solo confessed to illegal activities but he won’t get investigated or arrested because it’s wrestling. If Sterling were a Face lawyer, he’d be right on Solo’s ass. But maybe Wardlow beats the crap out of Solo as his punishment, then he gets his shot at Hobbs at Double or Nothing to put this story to rest.

Great promo from Cole and Garcia, and I appreciate they had Garcia have that slip of the tongue. Garcia is of course enjoying the fun side of being a sports entertainer, showing off his personality and just doing whatever shenanigans he wants, but he also clearly enjoys the pro-wrestling stuff of just fighting. Garcia VS Cole is going to be awesome stuff, but Garcia and the JAS also have their story with the House of Black so who knows how the finish goes. Great match out of Storm VS Skye, and Skye looked great even in defeat. Another inconsistency in wrestling logic: Riho & Willow should’ve been ringside to start because they know The Outcasts will be up to no good. But I suppose that does give Riho & Willow their moment of heroism in running the Outcasts off.

I bring up that inconsistency in logic because that match was after Moxley VS Grayson, where both men had their allies ringside. The men can think to bring their boys but the women’s division can’t think to bring their friends along, when we’ve also always seen Britt have Rebel and/or Hayter and vice-versa? Anyway, great stuff out of Moxley VS Grayson, and Grayson also looked awesome even in defeat. The BCC apparently went after everyone Hangman considers a friend, as the Bucks were taken out off-camera by them, and then the BCC jump Grayson.

And then, for being a non-title TV main event, Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo went above and beyond anything I would’ve expected. There were some scary moments, like that Super Steiner counter to the powerbomb. But then again, it wouldn’t feel like an AAA match if there wasn’t some risk like that. BCC jumping Omega after he wins was a good way to keep the Elite reunion story going, but now there’s the new wrinkle of Don Callis wanting Omega to stay a singles star. To be fair, this is very much like the story of Callis, Omega and The Elite when AEW first got started. Callis wants Omega to return to that Omega, and he throws Hangman under the bus.

Another pro-wrestling logic thing is that no one watches the show back when it’s done, unless it helps the story. And I would hope Omega does that here to see what really happened as opposed to just trusting Callis and distrusting Omega. Or if not Omega, the Bucks can. The Bucks will have seen it on TV at the hospital (kayfabe) and The Bucks will tell Omega that Hangman didn’t hit Callis. Callis is also trying to recruit Konosuke, so it’d be great if Callis only comes out of this with one client. If Omega realizes not to trust Callis over The Elite, then Callis and Konosuke can stick together. If Omega still keeps Callis around, Konosuke can reject Callis to stay his own man.

My Score: 8.9/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (3/21/23)

Toni Storm gets Dark!



AEW Dark is on #ToniTime!

The Outcasts have drawn a line in the AEW Women’s Division, and are daring everyone else to cross it! Will Toni Storm strike down another “entitled rookie?”


  • Juice Robinson VS Leon Ruffin; Juice wins.
  • Kiera Hogan VS Leila Grey; Leila wins.
  • The Iron Savages VS The Wingmen; The Iron Savages win.
  • The Renegades VS Avery Breaux & Mafiosa; The Renegades win.
  • Toni Storm VS Billie Starkz; Storm wins.


Another surprisingly short line-up for Dark, with a couple matches that could go either way. The Iron Savages, formerly Bear Country, and the Wingmen will be a good one, but I’m leaning towards Bronson & Boulder winning that. Kiera Hogan VS Leila Grey, former Baddie taking on Jade’s last sidekick standing, could also go either way, but I’m leaning towards Kiera. But it’ll be good to see Robyn & Charlette Renegade get a win here to build that unofficial Women’s Tag Division AEW has.
