Backstage interview with Cole Karter.
Tony Schiavone says the FTW Championship is on the line, and what a journey it has been for Karter to reach AEW. Yes, it has been a great journey, but Karter is interrupted by “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, and the FTW Champion himself, Ricky Starks. Yes, quite the journey. Rumor is, Karter was sleeping with the fishes, but now look at him. Karter’s here, swimming with sharks! Last week is behind Team Taz, Starks is looking to the future, and that future is Karter and Starks for the title. Starks has been FTW Champion for well over a year, and for a very good reason. That doesn’t change tonight.
Karter tells Ricky that his future is going to look a lot like his past, when Karter beats him for that title! Starks laughs that off, will he be dropping a dime tonight?

Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta are back in action together, ready to get back in the AEW World Tag Team Championship scene. However, they’re running into the Blackpool Combat Club!

Winners: Jon Moxley & Wheeler Yuta, by pinfall
Cassidy complains that Chuck taught Yuta that move. But Freshly Squeezed frustrations aside, will Best Friends have to admit Yuta improved thanks to the Blackpool Combat Club? Will Yuta prove he’s better because of the BCC when he defeats Daniel Garcia at Death Before Dishonor?
AEW takes a closer look at the coming ROH World Championship match.
Ian Riccaboni says, “Claudio is perhaps more dangerous on the mat than anybody that Jonathan Gresham has faced to date as ROH World Champion. So Gresham not only has to worry about the raw, brute strength of Claudio, but also his submission expertise.” Gresham himself says, “On July 23rd, you (Claudio) will step in the ring with the Foundation. The Undisputed ROH World Champion. And that means you’re gonna have to outclass, outsmart and out wrestle ME, the best technical wrestler in the world. But you won’t.” Will the Octopus drag the Swiss Superman down to the depths and hold onto his title?
Tony Schiavone is in the ring.
He says it is time for a celebration of the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! #SwerveInOurGlory, Swerve Strickland & Keith Lee! AEW’s Shaq & Kobe took these titles in last week’s #TripleOrNothing title match with the Young Bucks and Team Taz! They make their entrances to the ring and oh, there’s even cake and champagne. But first, they join Schiavone in the ring. A well-deserved ovation for the new champions. Fyter Fest night one, what a night. Congratulations to the new champions, and fans sing “OH~ Bask in His Glory~!” Swerve says Keith can’t hog all the glory. “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!”
Before we get into this, Swerve being the mogul… Fans chant “You Deserve It!” and Kevin Gates is here to provide the festivities and show some love. Khaza album, go get that. Keith says before moving on, he has a question for Mr. Gates. That album’s good, but what about the deluxe? Keith means to express his eternal thanks, not just to Swerve, not just to the opportunity to gain these sweet titles, but to all of the fans. Hold on, Keith has to take his Sasuke Uchiha hoodie off, he gets hot. Take it off, Keith, take it off~! Thank you. Now listen, the team appreciates the fans because with the fans’ help, Keith & Swerve have ascended to the top!
And if it were up to Keith, he and Swerve don’t need to look down. If you want a chance at the titles, you better reach out. With that said, a toast is in order! May it be… limitless! But then someone tells them to hold on, and it’s “Smart” Mark Sterling! He says there will be NO toast! Keith, you idiot, they warned you! Hey, watch your tone. Sterling says Keith & Swerve got lucky with the titles, and Keith got lucky Swerve didn’t stab him in the back! And they’re not the only people that think this! The People Against Swerve Strickland petition, aka #PASS, is almost complete! They can remove Swerve from the roster!
Nese licks the frosting on the cake!! Sterling says the majority of AEW already signed, so it would be great to get the international rap superstar, Kevin Gates, to sign, too! Sterling saw Kevin in the back, got excited, he thought that was Young MA. It isn’t, but oh well. But Kevin, you are a fan, yes? So do the right thing for everyone and sign! Uh, that’s a no, Sterling. Oh, is it? Well he thought Kevin would say that. Because just like Swerve, he’s untrustworthy and his music sucks! Kevin Gates jumps the railing! Sterling says you do not touch him, or he will sue! Nese is also Sterling’s body guard, so there’s that.
But then Gates BOPS Nese! Sterling fans Nese off, but turns around into a CAKE SMASH! This is the second time this has happened to Sterling in history. “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Will Swerve & Keith celebrate with just the champagne? And who will be the first to “reach out” to them for a title shot?
Backstage interview with The Butcher, The Blade, and the Dark Order.
Schiavone is with these two teams because John Silver & Alex Reynolds wanted to say something to the Butcher & Blade. Silver says he’s the Meat Man, so his favorite wrestler is The Butcher! Look at that mustache! And Silver has a gift for The Butcher. It’s a T-shirt that reads, “BUTCH!” Blade says this is stupid. Oh, don’t worry, they got him a shirt, too! But it also says “BUTCH.” Oops. Blade & Butcher attack! They choke the Dark Order with those shirts, then they POP-UP KICK Reynolds! Butcher tosses Reynolds into the wall, but Hangman Page makes the save before Silver gets any worse! Will the Cowboy take down Butcher & Blade for what they did to his friends?
Christian Cage & Luchasaurus VS The Varsity Blonds!
Captain Charisma hates Jungle Boy so much, he even hates those that merely resemble Jungle Boy! Luchasaurus already wrecked Brian Pillman Jr. & Griff Garrison on his own, will he and Christian make the Varsity Blonds extinct?
The teams sort out and Christian starts against BPJ. Fans rally, BPJ dares Christian to talk bad on his late father now. But then Christian tags out to Luchasaurus. BPJ rushes in, into a HEADBUTT! Luchasaurus looms over BPJ, drags him up, and shoves him at Griff! Griff tags in, circles with Luchasaurus, and Griff dodges Luchasaurus to ROLLING ELBOW! And ROLLING ELBOW again! Luchasaurus stays up, BPJ tags in, ROLLING ELBOW and SUPERKICK! But Luchasaurus is still standing?! The Blonds run, double shoulder tackle but Luchasaurus just rebounds to DOUBLE LARIAT!
Fans boo as Luchasaurus drags BPJ up in a choke grip. Luchasaurus gives BPJ a CHOKE SLAM! And then he drags Griff up to choke grip and CHOKE SLAM onto BPJ! Christian tags in to pick at the bones like a vulture, cover, Christian and Luchasaurus win!
Winners: Christian Cage & Luchasaurus, by pinfall
Captain Charisma smiles, but then he tells Luchasaurus to hoist him up. They mock how JB would ride on Luchasaurus’ shoulders, but wait! IS THAT JUNGLE BOY!? YES IT IS!! Christian tells Luchasaurus to go after him, but JB has a chair! The former friends stare down, who swings first? Luchasaurus MOVES ASIDE! He was only with Christian as long as JB wasn’t around! JB gets in, Christian runs away! JB pursues Christian into the crowd and up the stairs! Fans are thunderous, Jurassic Express rides again! When and where will Captain Charisma face the karma he’s collected?
Backstage interview with Gunn Club.
Lexi Nair is with Billy, Austin and Colten and says last week, The Acclaimed challenged them to a match, only for the Gunn Club to reject it. Why? Billy says, “Yo, listen!” Colten asks, “Why would we accept a match when we carried them for months? And by the way, we have cut them out of our lives.” Austin says he is sick of Max Caster putting them in his raps every single week, so here’s what will happen. Friday on Rampage, Austin VS Caster 1v1, IN A RAP BATTLE! Winner gets to pick the stipulations on their tag match: the when, the where, the what, but Austin’s in a rut. Heh, he’s already warmed up, dawg! But will Austin even touch Platinum Max on the mic when there’s a grudge match on the line?
Good ol’ JR joins commentary!
Jim Ross is here, so you know it’s the second hour! And yes, it’s gonna be a slobber knocker!
FTW Championship Open Challenge: Ricky Starks VS Cole Karter!
Absolute Ricky Starks put out the word, and that word reached this diamond in the rough even in Orlando, Florida! But will Cole use this pressure to turn into gold? Or will Starks show he’s not even worth two dimes in AEW?
The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who truly embodies the FTW mindset!
Starks and Karter circle, fans rally up, and many chant for “RICKY! RICKY!” Ricky poses, Karter rushes in, but Starks kicks low and CLUBS Karter! Starks CHOPS Karter, bumps him off buckles and ROCKS him with a right! Fans fire up as Ricky air guitars then he whips corner to corner to back elbow hard!

Fans boo but Karter whips and DROPKICKS Starks down! Karter bumps Starks off buckles, whips him corner to corner but Starks reverses.
Karter BOOTS back, hops up, and CROSSBODIES! Starks staggers up, Karter clotheslines him out to the apron, then DECKS him to the floor! Starks staggers up and is shocked! He wants a break but Karter eggs him on as Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Starks steadies himself, the ring count climbs, but Starks gets back in. Karter is raring to go, but the ref keeps him back. Karter still rushes in, but Starks FLAPJACK HOTSHOTS him down! Starks suckered Karter, and now stomps him down! Starks hops up to FALLING ELBOW! Starks stands over Karter, drags him up by his arm, and scoops to SLAM him down. Starks then runs the ropes, for the ABSOLUTE ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Starks slaps Karter around for kicking out, then he stalks Karter to a corner. Fans rally for Starks but Karter throws body shots. Starks ROCKS Karter, and again, and then brings him around to wrench.
Karter ROCKS Starks but Starks kicks low. Starks knuckle locks, CHOPS Karter, then goes up and up for a bit of Old School! Starks shows off a bit, then leaps to CLUB Karter down! Starks flexes and fans fire up! Starks then covers, TWO! Starks keeps on Karter with a chinlock and grinds him down. Karter endures, Starks thrashes him around, but Karter fights up to his feet. Karter throws body shots but Starks CHOPS him off his feet! Fyter Fest returns to single picture, Starks whips Karter to a corner but Karter reverses and now Starks bounces off buckles into a LARIAT! Karter rallies with more clotheslines, then BOOTS Starks down!
Fans boo but Karter grins as he brings Starks up to ripcord and ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Karter is frustrated but he cools off and waits on Starks to get up. Fans rally for Starks, Karter reels Starks in and suplexes. Starks slips out, spins Karter around, gets him up, but Karter slips off and shoves. Starks dodges, Karter hurdles the spear! Fireman’s carry, T K O!! But Karter isn’t done there, he goes up top! 450 FLOPS as Starks moves! SPEAR!! Cover, Starks wins!
Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall (still FTW Champion)
Taz’s belt stays with Taz’s guy, and Starks wants a mic. Starks says, “Atlanta! Wow. While that was my very first challenge, I came out on top. But guess what? I got a little bit more in the tank, baby. And I’m feeling like this is the right time to keep it going. So, for the guy right here in the yellow Wu-Tang shirt, this is for you! Let’s get another challenge out here!” Taz doesn’t get what Starks is up to, but here comes DANHAUSEN! Fans fire up as the Very Nice, Very Evil Overlord is here with a mic!
“RICHARD! It is I, Danhausen! Danhausen heard you had some sort of open challenge for that wonderful FTW Championship or some sort. So Danhausen would like to accept that challenge RIGHT NOW!” Fans wanna see it, too! Starks says whoa, hold on. When he said it was the right time, he didn’t mean right now. C’mon, guys, give him a break. Starks needs time to get right. So how about this? Next week, Dynamite, go watch it at home, it will be ABSOLUTE STARKS VS “MEH~ DANHAUSEN!” for THE FTW Championship! Starks still accepts Danhausen as his challenger, but will waiting seven days fail to save Starks from a curse?
Backstage interview with Athena, Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale.
Schiavone knows this was meant to be a Six Woman Tag, but Stokely Hathaway told Kris to sit this one out. Yeah, it’s pretty obvious why, and Kris even bops herself on the head to remind us of when she bopped Stokely. But as Willow sees it, Leila Grey not being here tonight is a sign. Athena agrees. This is an opportunity to reevaluate what they all want here in AEW. For instance, that AEW Women’s Championship would look amazing on Kris. And then the AEW TBS Championship would go around Athena’s waist. Yeah, that’s a good idea. So don’t worry, Willow & Athena got this! They can crush some baddies! Hands in, c’mon!
Athena puts her hand in, then Kris puts hers in, one, two, three, CRUSH the Baddies! But will Athena & Willow be able to serve up Jade Cargill’s first loss in AEW period?
Dynamite returns with Schiavone back in the ring.
He introduces the simultaneous ROH, AAA and IWGP Tag Team Champions who will defend those ROH titles at Death Before Dishonor in Best 2 Out of 3 Falls, it’s F T R!! Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood, the #ThreeBeltTopGuys, make their way out and Atlanta fires up. FTR joins Schiavone in the ring, and Schiavone brings up the fact FTR VS Briscoes is a rematch from perhaps one of the greatest tag title matches in 2022. Cash says first off, he’s never going to get used to that kind of reaction from the fans, so he thanks them for that. Second, Cash isn’t sure if anyone here knows this, but 2022 has been a decent year for FTR.
FTR has had big moments, big matches, and perhaps no other match was bigger than Supercard of Honor, because for the first time ever, FTR stood across from Jay & Mark Briscoe and they went to war! No match was bigger than that, until this Saturday, Death Before Dishonor, FTR VS Briscoes II. Cash respects everything the Briscoes have done in tag team wrestling these past 20 YEARS. But… ROH DBD, 2 outta 3 falls, all that respect for the Briscoes won’t let the Briscoes take what FTR has worked to get the ROH titles, or any of the titles they have! FTR will still respect the Briscoes, but if #DemBoys think they’re leaving the champions, they’ll have to take the belts from FTR’s cold, dead hands!
Dax sets down all his belts so that he can say, “There’s this five year old girl back home, and her parents took her to this routine check-up at the doctor’s, and he was listening to her chest, and listening to her back, and he heard something weird. It was an arrhythmia, an irregular heartbeat. And the doctor said, ‘Hey, don’t worry, parents, just go over to the cardiologist, just get some x-rays, get a CT scan, an MRI, we’ll see what’s going on.'” So the family did that, and it turns out the little girl had a hole in her heart. The doctor told the parents that if this little girl fought hard, she could overcome this and that hole would close on its own.
But if not, they’d have to do open heart surgery, a big risk for a five year old. Fast forward three years, the girl is now eight and she goes back to the cardiologist to do the x-rays and the MRI again. The hole is completely closed! Fans cheer for that happy ending because that little girl worked and fought her ass off to make herself healthy. And yes, that little girl is Dax’s own daughter. Fans cheer even more knowing that, and Dax says that if his little girl will fight that heart for something that isn’t promised to her, well then Daddy’s gotta do the same! Saturday night, Daddy Dax is gonna fight that hard to bring home the ROH World Tag Team Championships and a legacy his daughter can be proud of!
Fans cheer for FTR again, and Dax continues to say that he loves them, too. Saturday night, ROH DBD on PPV, “Briscoes, I’m gonna fight like an eight year old girl. And I’ma beat your ass! Top Guys, out!” Cash & Dax are fired up and ready to fight like never before! Will they get that two fall victory to stay triple champions?
Backstage interview with Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh.
Sonjay has the shark fin on his head for Shark Week as Lexi Nair says that also at ROH Death Before Dishonor, Lethal challenges Samoa Joe for the ROH World Television Championship. But… Christopher Daniels did also- Whoa, whoa, whoa. Is Lexi bringing up the Fallen Angel? Sonjay doesn’t care about Christopher Daniels! Saturday, live on PPV, Lethal becomes the NEW ROH TV Champion! And it’s a shame they have to wait for Saturday to do that, because Lethal would’ve done it tonight, would’ve done it last week, but Samoa Joe just doesn’t show up for work. What is going on here?
But wait! Christopher Daniels is here and he says he’s going to explain something to Lethal! Joe isn’t going to come here and waste his breath talking to Lethal, he’ll just get his job done at DBD! But if Lethal wants to get into the ring, Daniels will be waiting on Rampage! Talk tough then! What the hell is with that guy? How dare he interrupt them! Will Lethal and the Fallen Angel battle it out before Lethal and Joe finally have it out?
Athena & Willow Nightingale VS The Baddies!
Whether because Stokely is afraid of getting bopped or because Leila Grey still hasn’t been accepted into the group, this goes from 3v3 to 2v2. And while making their entrances, Stokely has the mic to cut the music and say he has good news and bad news! The bad news: Leila was unable to compete tonight. Jade pretends to shed a tear, but Stokely says the good news is that, with special thanks to the Cochran Law Firm of Atlanta, Kris is BANNED FROM RINGSIDE! Guess what? Ain’t gonna be no head slapping up in here!
Jade says boo hoo for them. Hotlanta has Jermaine Dupri in the house, they’ve got The Baddies in the house, and Jade’s family in the house! This is Jade’s territory, and she is gonna show us how she was #ThatBitch, is #ThatBitch, and will always be #ThatBitch. Atlanta cheers on their own, but will having homefield advantage fail to be an advantage?
The teams sort out, Athena starts against Jade, this could be a TBS title preview. They circle, approach, but Jade dodges and dusts herself off. Kiera tags in, she and Athena tie up. Kiera arm-drags but then Athena arm-drags back, and Athena dodges but so does Kiera. Athena ducks a kick, Kiera jumps a sweep, but Kiera throws Athena by her hair, only for Athena to kip right up! Athena ROCKS Kiera and puts her in a corner! Athena taunts Jade, storms up on Kiera, and she puts Kiera in the corner. Tag to Willow and fans fire up. Kiera shoots in, waistlocks, but Willow pries free to switch and shove. They ram shoulders, but Willow flexes!
Fans fire up, Kiera gets a leg and trips Willow! Things speed up, Willow swings but Keira ducks but Willow dodges the dropkick! Somersault senton then a BASEMENT SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Willow drags Kiera over, tags Athena, and Willow scoop SLAMS Kiera, to then scoop Athena, to SLAM her onto Kiera! Fans fire up as Athena covers, TWO!! Kiera survives and Stokely seethes, but Jade ignores Athena’s taunts. Kiera shoves Athena away and Jade gets a cheap shot in! So Athena DECKS her for it! Athena dodges Kiera, throws her out, then tags Willow. Willow hurries to the apron to DOUBLE BLOCKBUSTER the Baddies!
Fans fire up with Willow as she sets the Baddies up for Athena. Athena goes up and out to CROSSBODY onto everyone! Fans fire up with Athena and Willow while Dynamite goes picture in picture.
Willow puts Kiera in, hurries after her, and drags her up to wrench. Tag to Athena, she goes up the corner and CLUBS Kiera’s arm! Athena wrenches Kiera, tags Willow, YANKS the arm, and then Willow goes up to CLUB Kiera’s arm! Willow drags Kiera up, wrenches again, tags Athena back in, and Athena KICKS the arm! Kiera staggers away but Athena is after her and that bad arm. Another wrench, and then Athena knuckle locks. Athena goes up but Kiera YANKS her down and SUPERKICKS her! Tag to Jade and Jade EuroUppers Athena to a corner. Jade dribbles and runs, to DUNK on Athena! Jade whips Athena corner to corner, then DUNKS on her again!
Jade wrenches Athena and pump handles, FLIPPING FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Athena survives and Stokely is upset, but Jade drags Athena over to tag Kiera. The Baddies mug Athena, Kiera fires off haymakers but Athena forearms! Kiera snapmares Athena to KICK her on the back. Cover, TWO! Kiera drags Athena up, whips but Athena reverses, only for Kiera to tilt-o-whirl DDT! Athena flounders to a corner, Kiera runs in, BOOT WASH! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Athena holds on quite literally while Fyter Fest returns to single picture. Willow rallies the fans but Kiera drags Athena up and over.
Athena throws body shots, fireman’s carries, and DEATH VALLEY DRIVERS! Hot tag to Willow! She DECKS Jade, CLOBBERS Kiera, then CLOBBERS Kiera again! Willow CHOPS and CHOPS and whips Kiera, then hit a SPINEBUSTER! High stack but Jade breaks it! Jade throws Willow out, then dares Athena to bring it. Athena gets in and fans fire up as the two stare down! The forearms start flying back and forth, Athena gets the edge but Jade shoves her. Athena dodges the boot but Jade dodges the dropkick! Jade BOOTS Athena down! Athena goes to a corner, Jade runs in, but Athena BOOTS her crossover away!
Athena goes up, then leaps, but Jade catches her! FALL AWAY SLAM! Jade kips up and fans fire up as she flexes! But Athena kips up, too! Jade turns around, Athena dodges her, comes back, POP-UP METEORA! Jade gets out of the ring but Athena goes out after her! Kiera runs in, but into a pop-up! Athena double clutches to APRON POWERBOMB!

Winners: The Baddies, by pinfall
Jade is still spotless, even in tag team competition! But will the Fallen Goddess rise again like the moon to eclipse #ThatBitchShow?
Backstage interview with #ThunderStorm.
Schiavone is with Toni Storm & the AEW Women’s World Champion, Thunder Rosa, but has an announcement, too. Fight for the Fallen 2022, in support of Oceana, the non-profit organization dedicated to defending marine life and the world’s oceans, will hold an AEW Women’s World Championship match, Rosa VS Miyu Yamashita. Rosa is excited to have this match because she knows Miyu is the best of the East, the best of Japan, and Miyu is exactly what everyone says she is. But Rosa wants her to know, in both Spanish, Japanese and English, the title is staying home with Rosa!
But of course, Britt Baker and Jamie Hayter have to invade. Britt says less Rosa promos! Take this mic away. But good luck next week. JK, hope you lose! But we should also give the people what they really want. On Rampage, it will be Hayter and Yours Truly, Britt Baker, DMD. See you Friday. Will the Doctor and her assistant get back on track with the finale of Fyter Fest?
Speaking of Rampage: Fyter Fest!
Not only will we see Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter back in action, but after the brawl earlier tonight, John Silver & Hangman Page take on The Butcher & The Blade! Will the Cowboy and the Meat Man avenge Reynolds? Plus, it’s a showdown of Matt Sydal’s students as we get Lee Moriarty VS Dante Martin! Yes, there’s also Max Caster VS Austin Gunn in a Rap Battle, but ALSO, Jay Lethal VS Christopher Daniels in a Death Before Dishonor tune-up! Will Lethal make the Fallen Angel regret standing up for Samoa Joe?
The ring crew prepares the arena for the main event.
The ring ropes are being wrapped with barbed wire, and the shark cage is being lowered! The Jericho Appreciation Society will be stuck inside that cage so they can’t help Chris Jericho against Eddie Kingston, will they have no choice but to watch the Mad King bleed the Painmaker dry?
Barbed Wire Everywhere Deathmatch: Eddie Kingston VS “The Painmaker” Chris Jericho!
AEW returns and even Justin Roberts’ mic has barbed wire on it! Now THAT is “barbed wire everywhere.” The JAS is forced to make their entrance and be put inside the cage! Daniel Garcia, Jake Hager, Matthew Menard and Angelo Parker don’t like it, but AEW management is making them, so they have no choice. Ruby Soho is watching from ringside, she is the keeper of the key and the lift on that cage! And she hoists the JAS up high for all to see. But now, the PAINMAKER makes his entrance! And now Eddie Kingston makes his entrance, arms wrapped for a brawl! And he snatches Justin Robert’s barbed wire covered mic, to BASH Jericho with it!
The ref rings the bell to get this on record and fans are fired up already as we literally hear every SMACK of the mic! Eddie checks, “Is this on?” Fans cheer, “YES~!” Eddie tells Jericho, “You’re gonna bleed! Shark Week!” With the shameless plug taken care of, Eddie goes back to SCRAPING Jericho with the barbed wire mic! Then he punches the wound, and digs his fingers into it! Fans are thunderous for Eddie as he throws his shirt off. Jericho bails out but Eddie pursues, to CHOKE him with his shirt! Eddie drags Jericho around and BITES his head! Eddie is like a shark as he goes after the blood!
Eddie punches away on Jericho, SMACKS him off the timekeeper’s table, but Jericho grabs the ring bell! Jericho SMACKS Eddie with it, and yes! The bell has barbed wire around it, too! Jericho SMACKS Eddie with the bell again, then puts it back to bring Eddie around. Jericho finds a table with barbed wire all over it, but Eddie blocks the bump! Eddie resists, but Jericho still pushes him down. Eddie throws body shots, and he SMACKS Jericho off the barbed wire table! Jericho is already bleeding but Eddie is going to make him bleed more! Eddie punches the wound, puts Jericho in the ring, and fans fire up as Eddie throws more haymakers!
Eddie drags Jericho up and fans fire up as he whips Jericho into the barbed wire ropes! Jericho writhes but fans want more! Eddie obliges, he wipes Jericho’s blood all over his chest, and he brings over another barbed wire covered table! Eddie sets that in place, and then he SCRAPES Jericho’s forehead off the barbed wire ropes! Eddie finds a chair wrapped in barbed wire, and he SMACKS Jericho on the back! And then SMACKS him again! Eddie throws more punches into the bloody forehead, then he reels Jericho in. Jericho resists the bomb, throws body shots and forearms, then hoists Eddie up top!
Jericho throws more hands, ROCKS Eddie, then climbs up! Jericho stands up to SUPER STEINER Eddie onto the barbed wire table! Eddie’s legs are caught up in the steel while Dynamite goes picture in picture!
The ref checks on Eddie, helps him get free, but Jericho storms over to rain down fists on Eddie! Jericho then drags Eddie up and back suplexes him onto the barbed wire! Now Eddie’s back gets scraped up! Ruby can barely watch! Jericho pushes Eddie around, has the legs, and he turns him, WALLS OF JERICHO on top of barbed wire! Eddie endures being bent and scraped, and he fights up out of the barbed wire to grab at Jericho’s leg! Jericho falls, Eddie turns things back over, and he kicks Jericho away into the barbed wire ropes! Jericho writhes and Eddie again has to be freed from the barbed wire.
Jericho hobbles, Eddie manages to stand, but he is wary of the barbed wire nearby. Eddie throws haymakers but Jericho throws them back and Fyter Fest returns to single picture. They throw hands, Eddie RAKES Jericho’s eyes! Eddie whips Jericho into more barbed wire ropes! Eddie drags Jericho up, fans fire up and Eddie CROTCHES Jericho on the top rope! Jericho’s fireballs are getting scraped up! Jericho gets himself free but that hurts his leg. Eddie makes room for the one barbed wire table, and he throws hands on Jericho. Eddie joins Jericho on the apron, they brawl up there, and Eddie gets the edge with a flurry of fists.
Eddie reels Jericho in, lines up the shot, and SUPERPLEXES Jericho through the barbed wire table!! It wasn’t without its double-edged nature as Eddie gets some wires to the back, but fans lose their minds as Jericho is stuck in the barbed wire thread! The ref helps get Jericho up, but here comes TAY CONTI! The Blackbelt Brazilian isn’t officially part of the Jericho Appreciation Society, so she was exempt from the shark cage punishment! She rushes down to ringside and brawls with Ruby! Tay tackles Ruby, rains down forearms, but here comes Anna Jay! Anna drags Tay off Ruby and the friends argue. But then Anna DECKS Ruby!!
Fans boo as Number 99 betrays one friend to reunite with another, and TayJay POSTS Ruby! Anna then grabs the cage controls and presses the lower button! Fans boo as Tay snatches the key and unlocks the cage! The JAS is freed, they get to the ring and attack Eddie! They stomp away on Eddie 4v1! But here comes the friends of Eddie Kingston! Jon Moxley, Wheeler Yuta, Claudio Castagnoli, and Ortiz with a MADBALL SOCK! They fight the JAS at ringside, Claudio suplexes Parker and Moxley throws hands on Hager! Ortiz SMACKS Jericho with that madball, Eddie reels Jericho in for an EXPLODER through a barbed wire table!! Cover, TWO!?!?
No one can believe Jericho survives, but Eddie grabs a chair! Eddie aims, but Jericho hits a CODE BREAKER! double-edged as the chair still hits Jericho in the face! Jericho crawls to a cover, TWO!! Jericho checks his nose, that is fine but he still has blood from his forehead. Jericho gets the chair to SMACK Eddie! Eddie guarded with his arm but the arm just takes damage now! Jericho SMACKS Eddie’s knee, SMACKS his arms, and then sets the chair on Eddie’s body. Jericho runs to the ropes and springboards, LIONSAULT but Eddie CHUCKS the chair! The chair takes Jericho outta the air! Jericho sputters and clutches his legs, he stands up into the URAKEN!! Cover, TWO!?!?!
Eddie is furious and he hurries out to get some loose barbed wire! He wraps Jericho up in it, for a BARBED WIRE STRETCH PLUM!!! Jericho endures, but SAMMY GUEVARA appears! And he SUPERKICKS Eddie down!! The Spanish God is back after Blood & Guts II, and he rains down fists on Eddie! Jericho wraps his arm in barbed wire while Sammy sets Eddie up! But Eddie whips Sammy, only for Sammy to reverse and send Eddie into a BARBED WIRE JUDAS EFFECT!!! Cover, Jericho wins!
Winner: Chris Jericho, by pinfall
The Painmaker stays undefeated in AEW, but it took everything Jericho had in AEW, from the JAS to the extended family! Sammy sets Eddie up again, and Jericho aims the barbed wire. But Eddie LOW BLOWS Sammy, and he whips Jericho into Sammy! But then Sammy saves Jericho from the Uraken! Eddie tosses Sammy out and pursues Jericho to the apron. HIP TOSS onto the barbed wire mattress! Straight out of Omega VS Moxley from Full Gear 2019, Kingston throws Jericho into a spider web and Jericho is convulsing! Eddie made Jericho bleed, but he didn’t win the war. Is this blood feud going to continue? What more can they possibly do to each other?!
What an awesome episode for Dynamite! Great opener from Brody VS Darby, but I figured Brody would win. And of course Sting and Malakai get involved. This is of course setting up House of Black VS Sting & Darby and that is going to be awesome stuff. And Miro showing up was also intriguing. His sunglasses looked like it had two different kinds of lenses, maybe to hide a shiner, or maybe to hide Miro’s one eye mutating like how Malakai Black and Julia Hart have. Best Friends VS Mox & Yuta was great stuff, especially with Cassidy and Regal on commentary. Cassidy finally got angry, I would love to see Cassidy VS Yuta at some point. Maybe even Cassidy VS Moxley for the Interim Championship at All Out if CM Punk isn’t ready to come back yet.
We got a great ROH World Championship vignette, but that feels like a sampler from a full Countdown type special. I said on the AEW Dark article, I won’t be able to get Death Before Dishonor covered, but that is one wild card. Speaking of which, great promo from FTR. Cash & Dax are all fired up, 2 outta 3 falls could make it go either way, but I’d be surprised if FTR lost the titles while ROH still isn’t quite put back together. The interview promo turning into a brawl between Butcher, Blade, Dark Order and Hangman was decent, but the resulting tag match will be great. I would think Hangman & Silver win, mostly because Hangman needs to get going again.
Great segment with Swerve In Our Glory, Sterling and Nese. Good plug of some celebrity friends, and Sterling is 0-2 against cakes. I don’t know if Sterling is going to be dragged into another tag match, but someone has to team with Nese if he thinks he can take on Swerve & Keith. Christian & Luchasaurus of course destroy the Varsity Blonds, but I’m surprised Jungle Boy returned now. And I’m also surprised Luchasaurus turned back to Face so quickly, but it was also really fun that they did it this way. JB will surely get a big win over Christian at All Out, and then maybe Jurassic Express gets back in the tag title scene. Swerve & Keith VS JB & Luchasaurus 2v2 would be pretty awesome.
Fun little promo from the Gunn Club to call out The Acclaimed, but we all know that rap battle is going Caster’s way. And then The Acclaimed will come up with a tag stipulation, probably for All Out, and then they’ll win that to also make a move up towards the tag titles. Great promo from Starks referencing that Cole Karter was Two Dimes Troy Donovan in NXT, and we got a very good match out of them. But of course Starks retains, and we’re getting a great match for the FTW title in Starks VS Danhausen. I would love if Danhausen found a way to win, because then Team Taz will make Hook choose between them and #Hookhausen.
Good promo from Willow, Athena and Kris to respond to the change from trios to duo tag, and same for Stokely and Jade. Really good match out of Athena & Willow VS Jade & Kiera, but I feel like Kiera and Athena had the trickier time meshing. Of course Jade wins, but of course Willow takes the loss, we’re still going to see Jade VS Athena for the TBS Championship. Meanwhile, I’m starting to feel like Rosa & Storm when it comes to Britt & Hayter always showing up around them. Britt could be feuding with someone else to build up other Faces, but of course Britt is going to go right for the top champion instead. Anyway, Rosa VS Miyu Yamashita happening next week is great stuff, but I would think Rosa wins, and Rosa will end up facing either Britt or Storm at All Out.
Good promo from Lethal, Sonjay and Christopher Daniels. And I totally expected Lethal VS Daniels to happen, so good to see that happening. That will be a really good match but of course Lethal is going to win so he has momentum going into Death Before Dishonor. But I would love for Samoa Joe to show up on Rampage to get at Lethal before their match and really muddy the math. And of course, that main event was wild! Well, it was a bit cheesy for “The Painmaker” to pop out of the Codyvator like that, and a bit silly but also really clever to have barbed wire on a mic and on the ring bell, but other than that, wild stuff.
I can’t believe Anna Jay joins Tay and the JAS so soon! And all the overbooking was fine, it was only natural with the JAS being nearby in that cage. But then Sammy reverses Eddie’s reversal, what kind of BS is that? Just let Sammy feed Eddie to Jericho’s Judas Effect at that point. Jericho of course wins with all the different assists, but then Eddie stands tall, so this has to continue. I am not just kayfabing, I have no idea where they’re going next. Maybe an I Quit match? It won’t physically outdo this, but it’s about the character work of neither man wanting to give the other the satisfaction. Plus, twice we’ve had Eddie get Jericho in this Stretch Plum and it not finish things, so maybe third time is the charm and Eddie makes Jericho say “I Quit” at All Out.
My Score: 9.2/10

Sting fires off hands, ROCKS Buddy, then he back elbows Brody. Sting SPLASHES Buddy! Brody runs in but Sting moves, Brody SPLASHES Buddy, too!

Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker VS Hook & Action Bronson!

Mark Henry interviews tonight’s main eventers!
The World’s Strongest Man notes they’re having an unsanctioned Lights Out Match tonight, but then “Powerhouse” Hobbs says it’s about time Ricky showed up! That’s the Starks that fought Darby Allin & Sting. And yet, that’s the Starks that Hobbs beat in four minutes and 35 seconds. Tonight, there won’t be any change. Starks says that’s funny. Starks has been here, he never left. Hobbs beat Starks in just over four minutes, Starks admits to that. But he can also admit that he is better than a four minute match! That was a one time thing, it won’t ever happen again.
Hobbs needs to understand, that was a career highlight for you! The highlight tonight is Starks doing what he has set out to do from the get-go. Starks will close to Book of Hobbs, and he will make sure to put Hobbs down once and for all. Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event!
Lights Out: Ricky Starks VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs!
As Justin Roberts explains, the lights will turn off and then turn back on, signifying that AEW will NOT be responsible for what happens next. No time limit, no count outs, no disqualifications, no official record of this match on the win-loss records, and NOTHING holding these two back! When they can do absolutely anything they want to each other, just who will be left standing at the end of Grand Slam?
Starks gets a very cinematic entrance. “There is no fire like passion, and no crime like hatred. There’s uncertainty in your lust. You seek revenge, but your passion fuels you to burn brightly, like an inferno.” Starks, bathed in red light, throws things around the room in that anger. “You’ve done that,” the narrator continues, “just to be able to call yourself, ‘Absolute.’ You are absolute, Ricky Starks.” The bell rings and the haymakers start flying! Fans fire up but Hobbs knees low. Hobbs whips, Starks ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Hobbs! Starks rains down hands, Hobbs pushes him away and bails out, only for Starks to pursue!

Jericho says Hobbs is also his Sports Entertainer of the Week, and Hobbs fetches chairs from under the ring. Fans rally for Starks while he stirs and Rampage goes picture in picture. Hobbs gets a chair and he JAMS Starks in the head with it! Hobbs grins as he goes looking for more things under the ring, and he brings out… Is that a silver chain? Hobbs storms up to Starks, kicks him down, and he punches Starks with the chain around his hand! Starks sputters and crawls away but Hobbs says he’s gonna hurt Starks! Hobbs sets up the table in a corner now, then fetches Starks. Hobbs brings the straps down before he stands on Starks’ head.
The ref can only check on Starks but Starks refuses to give up. Hobbs goes out to take Justin Roberts’s belt?! Hobbs brings that belt over to LASH Starks! Hobbs says he’s literally gonna whip Starks’ ass, and he LASHES Starks again! Starks hits Hobbs back and takes the belt to LASH Hobbs! And again! And again! Starks keeps after Hobbs as they get back in the ring, but Hobbs pops Starks up for a SPINEBUSTER! But Hobbs doesn’t cover? Well, Hobbs did say he wants to hurt Starks, so he doesn’t want this to end here. Hobbs wedges a chair into a corner, then he goes back for Starks. Hobbs JAMS Starks with another chair! And then SMACKS him with it!
Rampage Grand Slam returns to picture in picture one last time, and Hobbs wedges that other chair into another corner. Starks crawls but Hobbs drags him up.

Starks pushes Hobbs down, and he flips the chairs around to be back to back! Starks drags Hobbs up, poses, but Hobbs resists the lift! Hobbs back drops Starks onto the chairs!! Fans lose their minds as Starks writhes! Hobbs grabs one of the chairs, sets it down, then does the same with all the other chairs. Hobbs scoops Starks for an OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE onto the chairs!!! Cover, TWO!?!? Starks survives and shocks Hobbs!
Starks crawls to the ramp but Hobbs pursues. Starks kicks him low, throws body shots, but Hobbs DECKS Starks! Hobbs stalks Starks some more, but Starks ROCKS Hobbs with a haymaker! Hobbs shrugs it off to DECK Starks again. Hobbs tells the ref to shut up about the ring. Hobbs drags Starks up, but Starks dodges to ROCK Hobbs! And again!

They both return to the ring, Hobbs takes aim, but Starks avoids the swing! Starks SPEARS Hobbs through the table!! Fans are thunderous and Starks has a wild look in his eyes! Starks stands up, he keeps Hobbs from picking up the light bar and snatches it away. He CRACKS Hobbs with it! Starks reels Hobbs in, underhooks the arms, lifts Hobbs up, ROSHAMBEAU!!! Cover, Starks wins!!!
Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall
That was an ABSOLUTE battle! An absolute clinic in violence, too! Will Starks be able to finally leave his past behind him and head for a brighter future?
What an awesome Rampage! It does help that this was Grand Slam week and they had to make everything on here matter. Well, they almost made everything matter. Jade VS Diamante, for actually building it up in a consistent manner, was really short. And as if Jade wasn’t already Brock Lesnar-ing the women’s division, she uses an F5 to throw Diamante onto the apron. Trina turning on Diamante in the end was also messed up, but whatever. Hook & Bronson VS Menard & Parker was really fun stuff, and Bronson definitely has that pro-wrestler potential. He’s great on the mic, obviously, and he’s one sturdy, stocky guy. Naturally Hook & Bronson win here, who knows what’s next.
Great opener of the entire night from the House of Black VS Darby & Sting. Loved the surprise attack from Darby & Sting, loved the use of the whole ringside area, and what a great surprise that Muta showed up. Didn’t like Julia Hart not going through a table, she overdid the jump. Maybe they should’ve had two tables there, too, like when Sting took his insane bump. But in the end, the Faces winning made sense if it means this feud is ending. As for Buddy & Brody, while they’re both bigger names than Dark and Elevation, I feel like they need to spend time there to buff up their tag team record and get into contention so we can see them feud with the likes of FTR and The Acclaimed.
Very fun but obviously one-sided match from #WardJoe VS Sterling’s stable. Of course Wardlow & Joe won, but I was a little worried that Wardlow taking that tumble and tweaking his knee was part of why this was less a tag match and more just two singles matches happening at the same time. I also think that with Joe having beat Woods and Wardlow having beat Nese, they’ll trade and we’ll get Wardlow beating Woods in a title match while Joe beats Nese in another. We got amazing stuff out of Fenix VS JB, and what a great win for JB. But of course Christian Cage & Luchasaurus ruin the moment and beat JB up. JB is going to continue showing his toughness, and he’ll definitely get his match with Luchasaurus now.
Good promo from the JAS celebrating Jericho’s win and setting up an even bigger celebration for Wednesday. I have a feeling Garcia does want to bring up Jericho cheating again, as it relates to Garcia’s own identity crisis of pro-wrestler VS sports entertainer. And I also think the celebration segment will give Bryan Danielson an opening to challenge Jericho to their tiebreaker, with the ROH World Championship on the line. Hell, Kingston might even show up after how things went against Sammy. Great match, and Kingston wins, only to cost himself because he didn’t show mercy, and it’d be natural to set a rematch for like the Dynamite Anniversary or something.
AEW does a great job with Battle Royals, and they really upped things here. The massive brawl, the seemingly endless number of entries, and all the stories that can now stem from what we saw. #HardyParty reuniting was a great one, and they can now take on LFI/AFO and get into the trios division. For a moment, I thought Rush or some other Heel was going to win, but in the end, Hangman wins to keep him in the world title scene. I suppose that’s fine, but I don’t see Moxley losing the title in Cincinnati only a month after getting the belt back. So then why waste Hangman on that? Unless that’s exactly when MJF will strike, to best stick it to Moxley!
