Rush survives, but Moxley is right on him! SLEEPER!! Rush is facing, turning red, BULLY CHOKE!!! RUSH IS OUT, MOX WINS!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission (still Interim AEW World Champion)

Moxley even flips off La Faccion Ingobernables to make a good point that you don’t piss him off. But wait! Chris Jericho is headed out to the ring? And of course, he has the Jericho Appreciation Society with him! And that includes the newest member, Anna Jay! Angelo Parker has the music cut and says this garbage town of Worcester doesn’t get to sing Judas! But here IS something the AEW Galaxy can do: APPRECIATE THEM! Jericho knew he had to come out here and congratulate Moxley on an amazing match. Mox has done a great job as interim champion, he is on a roll! But it is nothing compared to the roll the JAS is on!

Look at tonight: in tonight’s main event, it’ll be Daniel Garcia VS Bryan Danielson. And Garcia will kick Bryan’s stupid head in to finish the job Jericho started! Sammy Guevara is gonna ANNIHILATE Dante Martin, Tay Conti by his side. And now they’ve got Anna! Anna called Jericho for an opportunity, the JAS gave her one, and it paid off huge! Anna has a mic to say, “You’re damn right I took that opportunity. I’m a new Anna Jay. Anna Jay A S!” She’s the sexiest and toughest, and she isn’t afraid to prove it! She’ll choke everyone out if she has to! And that’s the intensity Jericho had last week when Eddie Kingston brutalized him!

Kingston left Jericho in a pool of blood and broke his nose before throwing him into a barbed wire spiderweb where Jericho had to be cut out like a horsefly! Fans chant for Eddie Kingston but Jericho says he still BEAT Eddie Kingston! He beat Eddie! He did!! And Moxley, Jericho’s gonna beat you! After two-and-a-half years, Jericho is demanding a rematch for the AEW World Championship!! And in two weeks, Quake by the Lake, when Jericho wins, he’ll be the first-ever TWO-TIME AEW LE CHAMPION!! Moxley says, “God, I hate you, Chris Jericho.” And Moxley hates this “sports entertainment BS” they’re doing.

By the way, take this “interim” and shove it up your ass! Moxley IS a two-time world champion. And Moxley used to look up to Jericho, which is why this is so sad. Moxley believes that Jericho is in his own way the greatest. Jericho has done everything everywhere. But this JAS Wizard Le Champion stuff is all pathetic. And this isn’t the World Sports Entertainment Championship of the Galaxy, this is the AEW World Championship! THE Championship of Professional Wrestling! Moxley made it that way and he’ll keep it that way! If Jericho wants to step to Moxley, if he has the balls to do that, then leave all that trash at home.

He means all the ones carrying Jericho’s bags. Jericho can carry his own bags. Moxley doesn’t want the Wizard, Le Champion, the King of Trademarks or whatever he is this week> Moxley wants the guy he saw on VHS tapes and magazines. The guy in Super J Cup! Moxley wants THE LIONHEART!! And if the AEW World Championship is to be defended on Moxley’s watch, it’ll be Moxley VS the last survivor of the Hart Dungeon, Lionheart Chris Jericho! This is for the world title, and anyone else but the best need not apply. The Maniac throws down the gauntlet and the ball is now in Jericho’s court. Will Jericho bring back that Jericho to get back on top?

 

AEW is introducing the World Trios Championships!

The tournament to crown the inaugural Trios Champions is coming, and it will all culminate at ALL OUT! Who will be in? And who will go all the way to win these belts in the Windy City?

 

Backstage interview with Dante Martin.

Tony Schiavone reminds us that Dante is going 1v1 with Sammy Guevara later on, but that means Dante will have to keep his head on a swivel. Dante says he in fact is doing just that. He already knows Sammy will have Tay ringside, and that’s because Sammy knows he can’t hack it on this roster anymore. Sammy’s been taking too many vacations around the world, snacking on grapes and getting his feet rubbed while Dante’s been sitting in the ring, working week in and week out, earning the fans’ respect. Does Sammy remember what that’s like? But Dante has someone in his corner tonight, and that is Skye Blue! Angel Dorado has Skye watching his back, will he be feeling sky high taking out the Spanish God?

 

FTW Championship: Ricky Starks VS Danhausen!

The gold doesn’t stop flowing in AEW! Absolute Ricky Starks put out the open challenge, but he didn’t expect it to be answered by the Overlord! Will Starks avoid getting cursed this close to Boston? Or will this title soon be Very Nice, Very Evil?

Starks’ entrance has a video package to start. “What makes a champion? Is it the respect on his name? Is it the commas in his bank account? Is it the foes he’s conquered? Maybe what makes a champion is what he’s destined to do, and who he’s destined to be. And this man’s destiny isn’t written in stone, but in gold. A future this bright, a legacy this heavy, can only belong to one champion, and he is… Absolute.” Starks makes his way out to the ring, but will he keep that future of his as bright as he wants it to be?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we really will see what makes a champion!

Starks and Danhausen circle and fans rally up. They’re torn between the two, and Danhausen builds up power. To pose like Starks! But then Starks BOOTS him down for it! Starks hears the fans booing but he just mocks Danhausen’s curse pose, to then go into his pose extra hard. But Danhausen BOOTS back! And then NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, ONE!! Danhausen gets the arm and hooks Starks up but Starks elbows free and ENZIGURIS! Danhausen is in a corner, Starks runs in but Danhausen dodges! Starks hits buckles, Danhausen rolls him up, TWO!! Starks clutches his neck, but he still dodges the haymaker to SPEAR!! Cover, Starks wins!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall (still FTW Champion)

That was quick! But Starks gets a mic to say “HAH! Very nice, Very Evil, but you’re not Absolute! And just like last week, oh my God, I’ve still got a little bit left in the tank. So let’s bring out another challenger, and I’m for real this time.” Taz is confused but Starks wants another opponent! So who will answer this newest open challenge? HOOK!! Taz’s own son, the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil wants his dad’s belt! He’s even wearing orange shorts! Hook goes to the ring and fans are thunderous! Starks said he was for real, is he going to follow through? HE IS! The FTW Championship is on the line in back-to-back matches, but will it be back-to-back wins for the Absolute?

FTW Championship: Ricky Starks VS Hook!

The bell rings Hook steps to Starks. Fans are thunderous, Starks takes a deep breath, and he swings! Hooks ducks, fires off body shots, and he backs Starks down! Hook HEADBUTTS Starks, whips, but Starks reverses only for Hook to reverse back! Drop step and a clinch, pump handle, BLACK SUNSHINE SUPLEX! Starks flounders and fans fire up for Hook! Hook clamps onto Starks but Starks ROCKS him with a right! And CHOPS him! And brings him around to hit a BIG back suplex! Hook gets to ropes, Starks whips him but Hook flips through the hip toss! Hook hooks Starks up but Starks rolls him up! Hook rolls through, but Starks SPEARS!!

Starks fires up, drags Hook up and gut wrenches, but Hook slips around to the REDRUM!!! Starks flails, reaches out, drops but Hook rolls with him!! STARKS TAPS, HOOK WINS!!

Winner: Hook, by submission (NEW FTW Champion)

Starks sputters, he will surely regret that they decided to #SendHook! And Hook has his first title in AEW! Team Taz fist bumps to show respect. Will Hook take this title to new heights as an undefeated champion?

 

AEW returns with Tony Schiavone in the ring.

He is with Ricky Starks, and now “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, in the aftermath of the title match. Starks is no longer FTW Champion, but he did want a second match. What is Starks’ reaction to all this? Starks says he lost, and he’s no stranger to that, and he’s okay with that. But he wants everyone to know something: he was given that title when people thought it was a noose, and he turned it into a tie. He made the most of that metal and leather and made it into gold! He brought it back to prominence, no one else can say that! Starks did that! And Starks exceeded all expectations and busted his ass, never giving less than 100%.

Starks deserves to be here talking to all the fans for more than 40 seconds. He deserves that! Fans cheer that sentiment as Starks says people in the back are telling him, “Hey, be patient. Wait your turn. The time is gonna come.” Starks is sick of hearing that! His time was last month, last year, and it’s RIGHT NOW! Starks doesn’t want people to say this is a string of bad luck. It’s not a string of bad luck, but just bad timing. That is why Starks & Hobbs- HOBBS CLOBBERS STARKS!??! The Powerhouse betrays Starks and fans can’t believe it! Taz is furious, but Hobbs isn’t done! He drags Starks up for a SPINEBUSTER!

Hobbs snarls as he stands over Starks and fans boo! No one can believe Hobbs would do this to Starks, but what does this mean for Team Taz?

 

The Acclaimed speak.

Max Caster says, “Yo, listen! Last week on Rampage, The Acclaimed roasted the Ass Boys in a rap battle.” Anthony Bowens says, “That’s right.” Caster says that obviously the Gunn Club doesn’t like that, cuz they attacked The Acclaimed. So for that, The Acclaimed will just roast the Gunn Club again. That’s right! Y’know, just to be jerks about it. That’s right! And the Gunn Club will have to watch The Acclaimed’s new music video, because that is how you’ll find out the stipulations The Acclaimed and the Ass Boys are having.

Bowens says if the Ass Boys wanna hit The Acclaimed in the head with garbage cans, then they better get real comfy. Bring some ass wipes, bring some ass cream, and even wear chaps for all Bowens cares. Friday night, The Acclaimed is taking out the TRASH Boys! That’s right! Everyone loves The Acclaimed, and everyone’s gonna love this music video. Friday is trash day, and that’s a mic drop! Just how badly will Platinum Max burn the Gunn Club? And just how violent will their grudge match get?

 

Sammy Guevara w/ Tay Conti VS Dante Martin w/ Skye Blue!

The Spanish God has his Brazilian Goddess in his corner, but the numbers will be even for once. Will Sammy be able to survive against Angel Dorado when things are fair? Or will SamTay still be able to pull one over on Dante and Skye?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally up, Dante and Sammy tie up, and Sammy arm-drags Dante. Dante comes back but Sammy runs him over. Sammy runs the ropes but he fakes out Dante’s drop down. Dante avoids Sammy’s stomp, kicks him in the butt, then headlocks. Sammy powers out, hurdles, and flips over Dante to DROPKICK! Sammy kips up smooth but fans boo. Sammy spins and poses, Tay laughs, but Dante storms up on him. Sammy CHOPS Dante, ROCKS him, then whips him to ropes. Things keep moving, Dante hurdles and shoves to drop and hurdle and DROPKICK back! Dante mocks Sammy’s muy loco.

Sammy gets up in a huff and rushes in, but Dante dodges Sammy and mocks his lounging pose! Dante kips up smooth, too! Anything Sammy can do, Dante can do, too! But Sammy ROCKS Dante, tosses him out, and builds speed to slide. Dante slides in at the same time! Then WRECKS Sammy with a dropkick! Dante builds speed, but he fakes Sammy out, springboarding backwards while Sammy slides in! Superhero landing to stare Sammy down! Fans fire up for the #INHUMAN Dante but Sammy bails out. Sammy calls to Tay, he says they don’t need this. Fans boo but Dante chases them down and CLOBBERS Sammy from behind!

Dante drags Sammy up to toss him off the ramp! Then Dante goes to the center to build speed and FLY!! Direct hit with the tope and fans are thunderous! Tay shouts at Dante but Dante gets back in the ring while fans lose their minds.

AEW goes picture in picture as Tay checks on Sammy. The ring count starts, Dante calls Skye over, and she hops onto the apron so he can give her a kiss on the cheek. Dante can fly and he can charm the ladies. Dante paces while waiting on Sammy. Sammy crawls, Tay shouts at fans taunting him, and Sammy manages to stand. Sammy goes up the steps and gets in the ring, but Dante DROPKICKS him right back out! Dante goes out after Sammy to put him in now, and Tay throws a bit of a fit. Dante gets in the ring, but Sammy kicks the ropes! The ropes hit Dante low, and Sammy snap suplexes! Cover, TWO!

Sammy is annoyed but he clamps onto Dante with a chinlock. Dante endures the squeeze while the fans rally up. Dante fights up, throws body shots, but Sammy CLUBS him. They brawl, Dante ROCKS Sammy, then goes up, but Sammy shoves him away! Sammy POSTS Dante! Dante flops to the steel steps and Skye check son him. Sammy spins and lounges again, then does “snow angels.” Dante manages to get back in the ring but Sammy is right on him. Sammy drags Dante around, kicks him around, then throws forearms. Dante leans against ropes but Sammy brings him in, only for Dante to block the bomb lift.

Dynamite returns to single picture as Sammy CLUBS away on Dante. Dante back drops Sammy up and out! Sammy tumbles to the floor and fans fire up! Dante builds speed to go up and springboard into the JUMP KNEE! Sammy shoots Dante out of the sky and he gets back in the ring. Sammy builds speed as fans boo, to TORNILLO! Direct hit and both men are down, but Sammy lounges at the ramp. Sammy puts Dante in, runs up, spins Dante around and SPANISH FLIES! Cover, TWO! Tay is frustrated on Sammy’s behalf but Sammy slashes his throat. He drags Dante up, torture racks, but Dante fights free!

Dante hooks the arms to backslide, TWO! Sammy knees but Dante blocks! Sammy boots Dante away, but Dante goes up and over to then get around and spin Sammy into a BACK SUPLEX FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Dante is furious but he hobbles his way to a corner. Dante takes aim, springboards, but Sammy goes up after him! Sammy stops the Nosedive with body shots, and SUPER BACK SUPLEXES! Only for Dante to land on his feet! Fans are thunderous and Sammy is furious! Sammy runs, into a SPANISH FLY from Dante!! Cover, TWO!! Dante hurries to hook Sammy up, HALF NELSON SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO!!

Dante snarls, Tay shouts at him but Dante goes out to the apron. Dante tells Tay to stay back, and he springboards. Sammy gets outside before the Nosedive, to copy the flight pattern and SUPER CUTTER!! Sammy vows to end this and he gets Dante up! Torture rack, GO TO HOSPITAL!! Cover, Sammy wins!

Winner: Sammy Guevara, by pinfall

Sammy talks trash on Skye then kisses Tay, but then Sammy stomps Dante! Tay even stomps Dante! Sammy drags Dante to a drop zone and climbs up top, but Skye gets in the ring! Tay turns Skye around and the ladies talk trash, but here comes Anna Jay! Anna CLOBBERS Skye from behind! TayJay are still BFFs and they beat up Skye! They set Skye up to SLAP her, but here comes RUBY SOHO! The Runaway isn’t alone, she has Ortiz and Eddie Kingston with her! They all run SamTayJay off and fans are fired up! The JAS rolls deep but so do their enemies! Will the “sports entertainers” be put in their place before the summer’s over?

 

Backstage interview with Daniel Garcia.

Schiavone says the main event for tonight is the returning Bryan Danielson taking on Daniel Garcia, so this must be one of the biggest nights of Garcia’s career. Garcia says he hasn’t heard Bryan’s name in a couple months. Where’s he been? Garcia knows he’s been in the ring, getting sharper, getting better. Has Bryan? Has Bryan been getting better? Or has he just been gardening with the wife and kids? Garcia is fresh and sharp, and if Bryan hesitates for even a moment tonight, Garcia will take advantage. Garcia will send Bryan back on vacation, and then they’ll be calling Garcia the Greatest Technical Sports Entertainer in the World.

 

Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh speak.

Sonjay starts by saying, “This past Saturday night, ROH Death Before Dishonor, my best friend, my man, Jay Lethal-” But speaking of which, Lethal cuts him off. Lethal doesn’t wanna talk about DBD, even though Samoa Joe won with an “illegal choke,” Lethal wants to talk about more pressing issues. Namely, the unfinished business between them and the Best Friends! Oh, those clowns call themselves “Best Friends?” This trio here are real best friends! But then in walk Best Friends! Trent can’t believe these guys are gonna talk trash when Best Friends are three feet away in their tie dye suits.

Chuck Taylor says, “Fellas, our dance card for Friday Night Rampage is looking pretty empty. And y’know ya bois like ta dance.” Trent lets Lethal and his guys know Chuck means “wrestle.” And they don’t really mean Sonjay, because they know he doesn’t have what it takes anymore. What?! He doesn’t have what it takes?! Look at these muscles! Sonjay still has it! So they’re on! Friday night, a TRIOS match! Best Friends VS “the Original Playa from the Himalayas” is back! Lethal asks Sonjay what he’s doing, and even Sonjay realizes what he just did! Why didn’t they stop him!? They’re screwed!

 

Schiavone is in the ring again.

“Ladies and gentlemen here in Worcester, let’s bring in the one and only, JUNGLE BOY!” Fans fire up to see JB, who came back after what Christian Cage did to him. And yes, Luchasaurus is with him! Jurassic Express is reunited and with a lot of pyro! They go to the ring, and the jacket JB is wearing is the very one Christian Cage draped over him a month ago. Schiavone says after weeks and weeks of horrible, disparaging remarks from Christian, finally, JB gets to respond. JB take a moment to gather his thoughts, then he shouts, “Christian Cage, you are the biggest P*SSY I have ever met in my entire life!!” Fans fire up for JB’s rage!

JB continues to say, “I have watched you come out here for weeks and talk all sorts of BS about my entire family. Congratulations, by the way. You are now the most relevant you have ever been in your entire career. But as soon as I get back here, you tuck your tail and you run! And I didn’t really get it at first, what you’re so angry about.” Christian says this was all because of that battle royal like a year ago. Guess Christian missed out on some bonus or whatever. But for someone who has been wrestling for as long as Christian has, that shouldn’t be that big of a deal, right?

But then JB thought a bit more and realized why Christian needed that money so badly. Christian is strapped for cash, because his wife had just divorced his ass! JB is returning fire on Christian, and even tells the former Mrs. Charisma to give JB a call. Schiavone has this calm down and asks about last week, the surprising reunion with Luchasaurus. Luchasaurus had been with Christian this whole time. JB says that just like all the villains in movies with the turtlenecks and small dongs–what do you think happened with the wife?–Christian needed someone to protect him. He found himself a monster in Luchasaurus.

But that monster is also JB’s best friend! And what Christian didn’t realize is that Luchasaurus was only protecting Christian from everyone but JB! Because no one is going to get their hands on Christian before Jungle Boy! And Christian’s made it clear that his only goal is to hurt JB. Well, if Christian wants to talk trash, he can talk trash. Say whatever you can think off, because JB can take it. If you wanna swing a chair and hit JB in the chair, swing it as hard as you can, because JB can take it! But three years ago, JB was standing in a dirt hole with his uncle Dave and a shovel, watching his tears fall into the dirt and turn it into mud. JB had to dig his father’s grave-

Christian interrupts from backstage and wants this all to stop. JB realizes what’s going on, and Christian says he doesn’t mean to interrupt anyone’s time here, but something real quick. Luchasaurus is JB’s best friend? Well, that was a big mistake, big man. We’ve seen where Christian can guide Luchasaurus. Luchasaurus was walking through people! His future was nothing but main events and gold for days, but he threw that all away just to remain JB’s lapdog. Now, JB thinks Christian ran off because he was scared of JB? No, Christian ran off because he was scared of what he was going to do to JB if he stayed.

See, if JB thinks that Con-Chair-To hurt, he ain’t seen nothing yet! And how fitting that JB has Christian’s old jacket that he draped over him. Because the next thing Christian drapes over JB will be a body bag! And JB won’t have to worry about Christian disparaging his dearly departed daddy, because JB can cozy up right beside him! Christian says JB may have the monster, but Christian has the advantage. JB told Christian all his secrets. So now Christian will prey on that weakness. What is Captain Charisma planning to do to Jurassic Express next?

 

The Young Bucks are on the Cutler Cam.

Brandon says they’re live, and Nick Jackson says they didn’t want to do this again. Matt tells Brandon to cut the camera feed, but Brandon says they got their time approved. No, it doesn’t matter, turn the camera off. But what about the Trios tournament? Oh? Tell us more about that. Well, they just announced it that there will be the first-ever AEW Trios Champions at All Out. All their other friends are gone, Cutler’s a pretty good third wheel. Uh, no chance, Brandon. Now cut the feed! Aw, c’mon, really? Cutler can get better! But then they bump into Hangman Page! The Cowboy was rehydrating and he says hey. They say happy birthday to him, he says thanks.

And Nick’s birthday is tomorrow, right? Happy birthday then. Thanks. Okay, okay, for the longest time, Matt has been meaning to talk to Hangman, but… And now the Dark Order walks over. They say happy birthday to Hangman, and John Silver says they would’ve brought cake but they kinda ate it. So instead, here’s some broccoli! Evil Uno points out that the Bucks are here. Is everything okay, Hangman? Yeah, guys, it’s fine. But the Bucks say it’s fine, good to see them all. The Bucks and Cutler head out, and Cutler says that was awkward. Shut up, Brandon, and cut the camera! Cutler lingers on the Dark Order talking birthday party ideas with Hangman, but could there perhaps be a chance of a reunion here?

 

2v1 Handicap Match: Tony Nese & Mark Sterling VS Swerve Strickland!

You’d think this was an unfair match, but considering The Premier Athlete has “Smart Mark” as his tag partner, it makes sense a ringside ban on Keith Lee was weaseled into effect. Will Nese & Sterling tipping the scales be enough to win? Or will Worcester become Swerve’s House?

The bell rings and Nese starts for his team. Fans rally, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” as Swerve and Nese circle. Swerve swipes at Sterling but he gets away, and Nese CLOBBERS Swerve in the corner! Nese stomps away, whips corner to corner, but Swerve goes up and over! Keith is at least watching backstage as Swerve O’Conner Rolls to an Eddy Gordo headscissors! Nese kicks but Swerve blocks to slip around, leg capture BACKBREAKER! Swerve runs to LARIAT! Fans fire up as Swerve goes out after Sterling! Sterling says he’s not legal, Swerve shouldn’t touch him! Nese slides out but Swerve ROCKS him first!

Swerve ROCKS Nese again, follows him around the ring and puts Nese in. Swerve brings Nese up but Nese throat chops! The ref reprimands but Sterling cheers. Nese runs in at the corner but Swerve puts him on the apron. Swerve ROCKS Nese, HOTSHOTS the arm, and Nese falls to the floor! Nese shakes out his arm, but Swerve is on the apron. Sterling grabs Swerve’s hair! The ref reprimands, Swerve swipes at Sterling, but Nese YANKS Swerve down! Swerve hits the apron on the way down and Nese mocks the “Whose House?” chants as AEW goes picture in picture.

Nese and Sterling soak up the heat while Nese stomps Swerve around. Nese drags Swerve up, ROCKS him with a haymaker, and puts Swerve in the ring. Nese stalks Swerve, brings him around to throw knees and body shots, then he whips Swerve to ropes. Nese CLOBBERS Swerve with an elbow, covers, TWO! Sterling applauds and tags in so he can stomp Swerve around. Swerve gets to a corner, Sterling stomps a mudhole in, and Sterling lets off to swagger and soak up the heat. Then he tags Nese back in and Nese stomps Swerve back down. Nese drags Swerve up, puts him in the corner and whips corner to corner hard!

Swerve bounces off buckles and writhes on the mat, but Nese keeps him in the ring. Nese puts Swerve back in a corner, talks trash, but Swerve pulls hair! Nese whips Swerve corner to corner hard again! Swerve BOOTS Nese, sunset flips, but Nese rolls through to SOBAT! Cover, TWO! Nese was smart to keep Swerve’s arm from the ropes, but Swerve still gets out on his own. Nese drags Swerve up, brings him over, and Sterling has his boot at the ready. But then Nese swerves Swerve by whipping him to ropes and CLOBBERING him again! Nese wraps on the body scissors to put on the squeeze!

Swerve endures, Nese slaps him around, but Swerve grabs at Nese. Swerve ROCKS Nese with haymakers but Nese claws at Swerve’s face! Dynamite returns to single picture as fans duel, “We Want Mark~!” “NO WE DON’T!” Swerve endures the squeeze more and he reaches out. Swerve turns around to rain down fists on Nese!

Sterling says he’s been kidding around but Swerve says, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” HOUSE CALL!! Cover, Swerve wins!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall

A major miscalculation from Sterling costs him and Nese here, but wait! Someone has clobbered Keith Lee! It’s JOSH WOODS! And he’s got the goods, i.e. Keith Lee’s AEW World Tag Team Championship! Swerve spots that on the titantron, and then Nese CLOBBERS Swerve! Nese grabs Swerve’s belt, and it seems Sterling’s #PremierGoods are coming for the Limitless House! Will Nese & Woods refuse to #BaskInTheirGlory and take those titles?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “There’s no need for this confusion, Miro. You and I both know that this entire world is a giant hoax. Hell, we live in a society where we worship people that add nothing of value. God? The Devil? We’re the same thing nowadays. And that’s where men like you and me come into play. Now while you call it ‘redeeming,’ I’d call it balancing out the uneven.” Miro has spent his life worshipping the throne. Malakai can make it to where Miro sits upon that throne! And then everyone will kneel to Miro.

Brody King walks in to tell Darby Allin it’s ironic. “You have the words, ‘Nothing’s over until I’m underground,’ tattooed across your chest.” It turns out, Brody King attacked Darby at San Diego Comic-Con! And does Darby know why Brody does that? Because he can. And it won’t stop until Darby’s casket drops. So Darby, Brody is here to beat him at his own game. Darby VS Brody, COFFIN MATCH! Let them know what kind of flowers you want on your headstone. The House of Black sends two deadly messages to their enemies, but will one join them while the other leaves this mortal plane?

 

The Undisputed Elite returns next week!

Adam Cole, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly are all healed up, what will they have to say about the AEW World Trios Championships?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship: Thunder Rosa VS Miyu Yamashita!

La Mera Mera traveled to Japan to give the best of Tokyo Joshi Pro a golden opportunity. The Pink Striker got that chance, and she struck Rosa down to earn that golden ticket! Will Miyu cash that in here tonight? Or will Rosa prove you don’t strike Thunder down twice?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Thunder’s reign dries up in the summer heat!

Rosa SHOTGUNS Miyu down! Rosa asks them cameraman if he saw that! Rosa then drags Miyu up, CHOPS her, then CHOPS her against railing! The ref wants this to get back in the ring but Rosa brings Miyu around to whip. Miyu jumps off the apron, FLYING CHUCK! Fans fire up and Miyu has an ice cold yet smoldering look on her face as AEW goes picture in picture.

Rosa crawls to ropes but Miyu stalks over to her. Rosa rams into Miyu but Miyu BOOTS Rosa! Miyu whips, Rosa reverses, but Miyu blocks! Rosa RHODES UPPERCUTS! Then she kicks and STUNNERS! Miyu flounders now and Rosa fires up! AEW returns to single picture as Rosa runs corner to corner, A-LIST LARIAT! Miyu sits, Rosa goes up, SWINGING KNEES! Rosa puts Miyu on ropes and fans rally as Rosa runs, DROPKICK to the back!

Fans fire up as Rosa keeps moving, DROPKICK to the front! Then the NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO!! Miyu is still in this but fans rally.

Rosa runs, but Miyu follows to clothesline at the ropes! Miyu runs but Rosa follows and wheelbarrows, but Miyu blocks the victory roll to GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!!

Fans fire up again with Miyu and she waits on Rosa. Rosa rises, Miyu aims, but Rosa ducks the heel kick to kick low! Rosa scoops Miyu, but Miyu slips off and shoves! Rosa bounces off buckles, Miyu runs up the buckles and FLYING CHUCKS again! Rosa wobbles, Miyu SPIN HEEL KICKS!! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Rosa survives but Miyu waits on her to get back up. Miyu reels Rosa in, fireman’s carries, but Rosa fights to a CRADLE! Miyu tilts it back, TWO!! Rosa survives what got her last time, and she puts in the mouth guard!

Bryan Danielson VS Daniel Garcia!

The American Dragon returns and he’s ready to breathe fire and kick heads in! But will his time away cost him? Or can Bryan survive the razor sharp Red Death?

The moment Bryan’s in the ring, he DROPKICKS Garcia in his corner! The bell rings and Bryan fires off KICKS in the corner!

Fans boo, Garcia lets off and flexes, and Bryan crawls to a corner. Garcia drags Bryan up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then whip corner to corner again. Bryan goes up and over! Bryan keeps moving, he ducks but then drops! Is Bryan’s bell rung? The ref checks Bryan again but Bryan rolls out of the ring. Garcia isn’t sure what to do now, but he pursues Bryan. They’re by the bare concrete, but Garcia RAMS Bryan into steel steps first!

The ref wants this in the ring but Garcia drags Bryan to the bare patch! DDT to the concrete floor!! Fans boo and Garcia grimaces. The ref reprimands Garcia while AEW goes picture in picture.

Garcia backs down as the ref yells at him, and even Garcia seems unsure if Bryan can continue. But then Garcia storms over, only for the ref to back him down again. Garcia goes into the ring, gets up on the corner, and talks trash on Bryan. Bryan looks to be busted open, but the medic checks him for anything else that could be wrong.

Bryan endures, but Garcia goes way back!!! Bryan can’t get any traction! BRYAN PASSES OUT! GARCIA WINS!!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

And it was JAKE HAGER under the ring! Hager and Jericho celebrate with Garcia as the JAS screws Bryan over again! Jericho is going after Moxley’s title, will Garcia use this win to claim his own shot at some gold?


My Thoughts:

An awesome night for this year’s Fight for the Fallen! A rather surprising match order, but it all worked out for what AEW is setting up these next couple of months. Moxley VS Rush was a great opener, and of course Andrade tries to screw Moxley over, only for the Lucha Bros to run him off. And of course Moxley retains to keep going strong. Jericho making a challenge was expected, and I like that we’re getting it at a brand new themed episode instead of stretching it until All Out. Moxley had a great promo to not only state that he might as well be THE champion, and to dare Jericho to get even more serious than he just did against Eddie Kingston. That match at “Quake by the Lake” is going to be awesome, and honestly, it could go either way. Moxley and Jericho would both give Punk an awesome match.

Following the AEW World Championship right up with the FTW Championship was surprising, too, but also great. I should’ve figured Starks would put Danhausen away easily, but what a turn of events right after! Starks VS Hook was also quick, Hook gets a huge win and is now the champion. And then Hobbs turns on Starks after all the tease of Swerve and Keith breaking up, that was incredibly shocking. But given Taz was upset, Hobbs must be wanting to break away from Team Taz since it hasn’t gotten him anything but losses. Hobbs VS Starks will be great, Hobbs possibly going after Hook will be great, Hobbs going after any of the champions will be great, Hobbs is just great.

Speaking of champions, FINALLY! AEW World Trios Championships! The tournament is going to be awesome, and we got a great promo from the Bucks, Hangman and Dark Order to tease all the possibilities for that bracket. While the tease is that the #HungBucks will reunite, there could totally be a swerve that Kenny Omega returns and THE Elite go for the titles. And with the Undisputed Elite on their way back, I would love if the finals at All Out is Kenny & Bucks VS Undisputed Era to wrap up that story and crown champions all at once. At the same time, we’re getting Best Friends VS #LethalFriends, the winner of that can definitely claim a spot in the tournament.

Good promo from The Acclaimed to hype up what’s coming in their story with the Gunn Club. The lens flare on the lights behind them made this feel very 90’s but in a good way. And given the trash can thing on Rampage, I would hope we get some kind of No Disqualification match. Good promo from Dante to introduce Skye Blue as an ally, Dante VS Sammy was awesome stuff, but I figured Sammy would win. Soho, Eddie and Ortiz show up, I’m pretty sure we’re getting TayJay VS Soho & Skye on top of the other JAS feuds that need to settle out. And what powerful stuff out of JB and Christian Cage. They were hitting hard with those promos, and I can’t wait to see what we get as a match between them.

The 2v1 Handicap went as I expected, in that Swerve pins Sterling to win. But what a great way of integrating AEW Dark into things for once. Nese and Sterling were scouting Woods, Woods joins them, and now Nese & Woods are a team that wants after Swerve & Keith. If AEW sticks to their “wins and losses matter,” #PremierGoods will have to go on a tear through Dark and Elevation, and maybe even Rampage. Of course, they could try a Tag Title Eliminator, but we’ll wait and see. Strong promos from the House of Black, too. Malakai VS Miro and Brody VS Darby are going to be awesome stuff, and both could go either way.

The women’s title match was really good, and it referenced much of what they did at TJPW Summer Sun Princess. A little clumsy, though, when they were on the apron, maybe some miscommunication between them. I knew Rosa would retain, but I was more surprised that Britt Baker didn’t ruin the moment. But I suppose it is better overall if Britt just waits for the coming tag match of her and Hayter VS #ThunderStorm. And then Bryan VS Garcia was awesome stuff. Bryan did a great job selling being rattled by that missile dropkick landing, and of course he bleeds. But of course the JAS screws Bryan over. If Jericho loses to Moxley, I’d love if we got Jericho VS Bryan. I don’t think we’ve seen that 1v1 match in years, so it’d be great to see them do that in AEW.

My Score: 9/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (2/7/23)

Konosuke Takeshita gets Dark!

Published

on

The future of wrestling could be defined in the Dark!

Konosuke Takeshita is going strong in AEW, but he takes on MLW’s EJ Nduka! Will Konosuke still be The Future? Or will The Judge bring down the law?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Slim J VS Mascara Dorada; wins.
  • Rush w/ Jose the Assistant VS Aiden Park; wins.
  • The Outrunners VS Logan Cruz & Tyshaun Perez; wins.
  • Baliyan Akki VS Rico Gonzalez; wins.
  • Blake Christian VS Serpentico w/ Luther; wins.
  • Dalton Castle w/ The Boys VS Dante Casanova; wins.
  • Kiera Hogan VS Megan Meyers; wins.
  • Konosuke Takeshita VS EJ Nduka; wins.

QUICK NOTES

Another pretty good line-up, but the highlight is of course Konosuke VS Nduka. Both are great, having been champions outside of AEW. In fact, Nduka will be featured on tonight’s debut edition of MLW Underground on the Reelz channel. Nduka is challenging Alex Hammerstone for the MLW World Heavyweight Championship in a Last Man Standing match. Between AEW Dark on YouTube and the MLW television debut, Nduka is going to get noticed by a lot of wrestling fans, and he very well could be the new MLW Champion the next time he’s in AEW.

Mitchell’s AEW Dark: Elevation Results & Report! (2/6/23)

Dayton gets Elevated!

Published

on

Tag teams tune-up in Dayton!

While The Acclaimed defend their AEW World Tag Team titles against Austin & Colten on Dynamite, many teams fight tonight to see who’s got next!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Matt Menard & Angelo Parker VS The Boys w/ Dalton Castle; Menard & Parker win.
  • Juice Robinson VS Jake Crist; Juice wins.
  • Six Man Tag: The Dark Order VS Renny D, Matt Brannigan, & Crash Jaxon; The Dark Order wins.
  • Yuka Sakazaki VS Billie Starkz; Yuka wins.
  • Six Man Tag: Best Friends VS Zack Clayton & Chaos Project; Best Friends win.
  • “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs VS Corey Calhoun; Hobbs wins.
  • Top Flight VS The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny; Top Flight win(s).
  • 8 Woman Tag: Nyla Rose, Marina Shafir, Diamante & Emi Sakura VS Madison Rayne, Queen Aminata, Skye Blue & Hyena Hera; Nyla, Shafir, Diamante & Sakura win.
  • Wheeler Yuta & Claudio Castagnoli VS Ari Daivari & Tony Nese w/ Mark Sterling; Yuta & Claudio win.

QUICK NOTES

A good line-up, and plenty of great tags and trios going on. Menard & Parker are tuning up for the big gauntlet Ricky Starks is taking on this Wednesday, so the team formerly known as 2Point0 and Ever-Rise will surely beat The Tate Twins. Dark Order can get a good win here tonight to stay afloat as we wait on Hangman Page’s story of mending fences with old friends. Best Friends will definitely win against Clayton & Chaos Project. Not sure why it isn’t Spanish Announce Project, but maybe Angelico needs to be on Spanish commentary. Top Flight will have a hard match against Butcher & Blade but they’ll surely win going into their AEW World Trios title match.

I really like the 8 Woman Tag we’re seeing. That really is the Vicious Vixens faction I was hoping AEW was going to give us, as we’ve seen Diamante and Emi Sakura each team with Nyla Rose over the years. They’ll surely get the win here, and maybe they can convince Tony Khan to get them involved in the larger AEW Originals VS Outsiders story that we’ve got with Britt Baker, Ruby Soho, Saraya and Toni Storm. And I would think Yuta & Claudio, the top ROH champions, will win as they’re just up against Daivari Dinero & The Premier Athlete. Why it isn’t the Varsity Athletes, no idea.
