Tony Khan addresses the AEW fans!
“Hi. Thank you for joining us tonight, and welcome to AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite on TBS. Following All Out on PPV this past Sunday night, I have been forced to vacate the AEW World Championship, as well as the AEW World Trios Championships. New world trios champions will be crowned live tonight in our opening contest in a fight between two of the most storied trios in AEW’s history: Orange Cassidy & Best Friends VS The AEW All-Atlantic Champion, PAC, and the Lucha Brothers, the Death Triangle.
“The AEW World Championship is the single most prized title in all of combat sports, and it will be decided in the grandest way possible: The AEW Grand Slam Tournament of Champions. All the entries have been champions somewhere in their careers, and even some in AEW! Chris Jericho the SEVEN-TIME world champion and inaugural AEW World Champion, as well as three-time world champion, Jon Moxley, get byes into the semifinals.
The opening round features three-time TNT Champion, Sammy Guevara, taking on longest reigning TNT Champion, Darby Allin, this Friday for Rampage! And, SIX-TIME world champion Bryan Danielson taking on former AEW World and World Tag Team Champion, Hangman Page, here tonight!! The finals will happen in two weeks, September 21st, at Arthur Ashe Stadium for AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam 2022! Tony Khan promises us a great night of pro-wrestling, and that AEW will be at its very best these next few weeks. He thanks us again, and sends things back to commentary. Just how big will things get for AEW in the wake of All Out?
MJF is here!
Buffalo cheers their fellow New Yorker, and he shows his loyalty by wearing a Buffalo Bills Josh Allen jersey! MJF jogs right to the ring, does a bit of a CM Punk crowd lean, then gets in the ring to cut his music. “BUFFALO, NEW YORK! The Devil is back! Now listen up, Buffalo. First thing’s first. Who’s excited to see MJF? Lord knows I am, guys. I love Buffalo, New York. Hell, the greatest quarterback of all time, Josh Allen, is from Buffalo. Now, we’re gonna get down to brass tax a bit here, okay? Last time you guys saw me, I might’ve said some offensive stuff. I’m just being honest. But I think we can all agree…” Fans chant, “You Were Right!” MJF says he was just kidding then!
Everything he said was a joke! He loves AEW! He’ll never leave this place! He gets an “A E DUB!” chant going, and when MJF said the fans were all stupid marks, he didn’t mean it. Because without fans, there would be no MJF! How about a round of applause for yourselves? “Now, it’s about time. I have to address the big, fat, smelly elephant in the room, and no ma’am, I’m not talking about you. I’m just kidding, honey, we’ll meet up after the show. You’re gorgeous.” Fans cheer and MJF makes heart hands. Now, we know the world title has been vacated. Don’t boo! Hold on! There will be a tournament of champions to crown a new champion.
And if there’s one thing we can agree on, MJF knows one guy who deserves that championship. But MJF is working smart, not hard, so he is not gonna get in that tournament. Y’know why? Because he has a chip that guarantees him a championship match any damn time he wants! Fans cheer that. And also, Tony Khan is paying MJF a boatload o’ money~! Fans cheer that, too! Now, listen. Hear him out, guys. Hold on, he only has so much time allotted, shush. If there’s one thing MJF knows to be true, it’s that while you might think we’re in dark times, we’re not. What we need is leadership. And MJF cannot think of another person more trustworthy than MJF!
There was once a wise Jewish man, his name started with an M. When his people were meek, weak and needed help, that man split the sea wide open and walked them to the Promised Land. MJF isn’t telling you he’s Moses, that’d be ridiculous. HE’S BETTER THAN MOSES! Fans cheer for their new leader! MJF is gonna win the title because he is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and he’s better than you, and you know it!! But wait! Here comes the previous champion, and one of the men in the tournament of champions, JON MOXLEY! Moxley enters from the audience side as always, and he gets a mic before getting in the ring.
Mox stares at MJF and fans cheer. “You… You are absolutely full of crap.” MJF says Jonathan thinks MJF isn’t being sincere in Buffalo, in front of all these grotesque, poor lard asses that have quite possibly the worst football team in the history of the United States of America? Off goes the jersey! And he wipes his butt with it! “Josh Allen SUCKS!” But Moxley may be a bit woozy after going to sleep on Sunday, but maybe he has a point. Maybe MJF doesn’t care about AEW. Maybe MJF doesn’t care about the people. And maybe, just maybe, MJF just looks at the world title as nothing more than a bargaining chip that he can use for the bidding war of 2024.
Maybe MJF takes that title with him to a real wrestling company, with real fans and real wrestlers like MJF’s friend and hero, the American Roller Code-ster, Cody Rhodes! Fans boo but MJF tells the “bums” to keep their mouths shut! Maybe, just maybe, MJF gets to work for a real boss, the only Khan in pro-wrestling that’s worth a damn, jolly old Saint Nick! “Because to quote the greatest wrestler of all time, and my personal hero, The Game… ‘That is what’s best for business.'” Mox slaps MJF’s mic down and then says, “This is not the time, and this is not the place. And I am in no mood. You need to leave this ring right now, or I will make you leave.”
Off comes the jacket and fans fire up! MJF unbuttons his shirt as Moxley rolls up his sleeves. Fans fire up for Moxley as MJF struggles with his shirt sleeve. MJF gets the shirt off now, but he just stands there. And then he bails out! Fans boo because MJF is still MJF. Moxley says MJF’s theme music sucks, too. Now, Buffalo, Mox is in no mood. Mox is pissed off, embarrassed, and angry about a great many things. None more so than that he is standing here without the AEW World Championship, the only material possession in the world that really matters to him. But the belt itself is leather and metal and you can buy one online. That belt doesn’t mean anything.
What means something is what the belt represents. It means something to Moxley and to a lot of people. “The AEW World Championship represents passion for this sport, passion for this business. It represents the passion of the guys and girls in the back, and the fans that fill the arenas and watch at home. Those three letters on the AEW World Championship, they represent the heroes during the pandemic, during a time when the world needed heroes. It represents the dream, the vision that we all had when we started this thing years ago. And we wanted to show the world just what wrestling could be!
“The AEW World Championship represents taking the dark and ugly side of this business and letting it die with another generation. The world championship represents the freedom to be as great as you are willing to dare to be! The AEW World Championship means being better than I was the day before. Even if it was just a little bit better, even if nobody notices but me. That world championship represents slaying demons, that world championship represents everything I love about this business!” Fans fire up and cheer Moxley on. Moxley says the fact remains, he lost. And that’s on him, that’s his fault, he made a mistake and got pinned.
Moxley missed the game winning shot. And he was supposed to be on vacation right now until about two days ago. But here’s another chance to take another shot when the game’s on the line. This tournament of champions is one hell of a shot, one hell of a big rock to push to the top of the hill again. Chris Jericho, the greatest of all time. Bryan Danielson, the best pure wrestler to ever step in the ring, a better pure wrestler than Moxley will ever be. Darby Allin, Hangman Page, Sammy Guevara, three dudes all younger than Moxley, faster than Moxley, more naturally gifted than Moxley could ever be. So yeah, that’s a hell of a shot.
But winners always want the ball when the game’s on the line. The ace always wants the ball. And Moxley wants the ball! So yeah, Moxley’s taking the shot. Because this isn’t just time to win, this isn’t just the fourth quarter, this is time to be a legend! The Maniac fires Buffalo up for this already exciting tournament! Will Moxley fight just as hard as he always has to get to the Grand Slam?
Vacated AEW World Trios Championships: Best Friends VS Death Triangle!
As epic as All Out was with the trios title tournament finale, it might as well have never happened. These two teams have scores to settle, and they get to do it with gold on the line!

Backstage interview with The Dark Order.
Tony Schiavone stands with Evil Uno, Preston Vance, John Silver & Alex Reynolds as he notes that injuries kept them from competing for the vacated trios titles.

For whatever reason, El Idolo wants Vance to work for him, so here’s the contract. Uno tells Jose that maybe he didn’t understand what they were saying last week. The Dark Order is NOT for sale! Silver says Jose’s last name is “the assistant.” Get outta here!
But in walks Andrade and Rush. They don’t wanna speak with anyone but Vance. No, the only thing Andrade will be speaking to are Johnny’s fists! Rush gets fired up. Silver wants to fight? Yes, he’d love to! Andrade gets Rush to calm down and fall back for now. Will LFI not give up until they get what, and who, they want?
AEW shares footage from after All Out’s Women’s World Championship Fatal 4 Way.
Britt Baker tried to talk with Jamie Hayter, but Hayter wasn’t having it after the stunt Britt pulled. Hayter would’ve won the title, and Britt apologizes, but it doesn’t matter. Britt sulks away, did the Doctor just bust up the best friendship she had in AEW?
Interim AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm VS Penelope Ford w/ Kip Sabian!
Thunder Rosa got hurt, a Fatal 4 Way was held, and it was the Lightning From Down Under that struck! Gold, that is. But the new champion, interim though she may be, does not rest when there’s work to be done. Storm is going to be a fighting champion, but will she stay spotless while waiting for Rosa’s return? Or will Mrs. Superbad get herself a golden ticket tonight?

AEW hear from Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker, as well as Hook & Action Bronson.
On Sunday, in a competitive match, Hook won against Cool Hand Ange. They’ll give credit where it’s due, but then Hook also got his just desserts from Daddy Magic! Welcome to the real world, kid! But just as Menard & Parker were handling business, Action Bronson showed up? Bronson tells them to not try any of that coward stuff in their life with his guy. Well if Bronson wants to walk in all willy nilly into “OUR WORLD,” Daddy Magic don’t think so! Not that night, not any night! Bronson does not belong in wrestling!
Bronson says AEW is coming to Queens soon. That’s his backyard. Grand Slam, come see them! Hook may be crazy, but y’all don’t know ’bout Bronson. Menard says if Bronson wants to spit in their faces, he’ll get a taste! What will happen when the Jericho Appreciation Society throw down with the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and the man behind the song?
The Acclaimed is here!
Buffalo is so ready to “Yo! Listen!” “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Oh, that wasn’t part of Max Caster’s plan. The AEW World Tag Team Champions interrupt already, and Swerve says he’s sorry. Were they all here to hear more stupid, corny rap jokes from The Acclaimed? “YES! YES! YES!” And they even call Swerve an A-Hole! Well, in that case, Swerve has a joke for them. The Acclaimed as AEW Tag Champions. HAHA! But for real- Billy Gunn cuts “Swervy Boy” off right there. See, he doesn’t know if the fans are listening, but this ain’t Swerve’s House no more! This is Daddy Ass’s House! Fans chant for “DADDY ASS! DADDY ASS!”
And Bowens says, because of all the fans, in two weeks, Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City, it is The Acclaimed VS Swerve In Our Glory, round two! And the uncrowned champs are taking home the gold! Because EVERYONE loves the Acclaimed! Now scissor him, Daddy Ass!! Not quite a mic drop, but Swerve takes off his sunglasses. It was already an epic at All Out, will this time be even more insane between Swerve and the Acclaimed?
Backstage interview with The Jericho Appreciation Society.
Specifically, Schiavone is with Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Tay Melo & Anna “Jay A S.” Schiavone says they’re celebrating Jericho’s big win on Sunday. Big? How about a GIGANTIC win over Bryan Danielson. And just look at him! Jericho’s better than ever. Here’s a history lesson: 400 years ago, Ponce De Leon went looking for the Fountain of Youth. He didn’t find it, but in 2022, Corazon De Leon, Lionheart Chris Jericho, found that fountain! He’s drinking it in, maaaan~! That’s why Jericho beat Bryan on Sunday at his own game. Jericho is now the Best Wrestler Ever, the Best Sports Entertainer Ever, the BWEE B’SEE!
What? B WEE! B SEE! Hashtag it, Tony! And that’s another reason why Jericho will beat Bryan again, next week on Dynamite to then go on to Grand Slam and become the world champion for the EIGHTH TIME! Because it is Jericho’s title! AEW is his company! And this is his EFFIN locker room! No one is ever taking that away from Jericho, ever!! EVER. And when it comes to the Jericho Appreciation Society, he’s got two little brothers. One is Spanish God Sammy, who takes on Darby Allin this Friday on Rampage in the Tournament of Champions. Sammy says that’s right! He tells Darby that on Rampage, “your little turtle lovin’ ass is getting beat!”
Jericho says the JAS doesn’t like turtles! And his other little brother is Danny Garcia, who is in the biggest match of his career, in his hometown of Buffalo, New York! He’s against Wheeler Yuta, but Jericho knows Garcia will win, because he believes in Garcia. But because Garcia decided to not join them on Sunday, the JAS leaves Garcia alone. Garcia will win, just without the JAS. Right, Sammy? Oh, sorry, he wasn’t paying attention. Look how sexy they all are! Even Jericho! Look at those abs! Is Jericho writing off Hangman Page already when the tournament’s not even begun? And is Garcia going to be able to do this all on his own?
AEW TNT Championship: Wardlow VS Tony Nese w/ Mark Sterling!
The War Dog won alongside his brothers in arms, FTR, against Jay Lethal and the Motor City Machine Guns. But now he sets out on his own again, ready to powerbomb anyone and everyone who’s coming for his gold. Will the Premier Athlete be able to survive the symphony? Or will Wardlow give Nese a powerbomb for every one of his eight abs?
The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and this is WAR!
Fans chant for “WARD~LOW! WARD~LOW!” but Nese flexes on him. Nese mocks Wardlow’s lesser abs and jigglier pecks, but Wardlow HEADBUTTS Nese with a harder head! And then gives him the wind-up LARIAT! The straps come down, and Wardlow drags Nese up and reels him in! Fans fire up for the POWERBOMB! Sterling is stunned but that’s just the first verse! Fans fire up for it, “ONE MORE TIME!” and Wardlow gives Nese the SECOND! And then right into the THIRD! Cover, Wardlow wins!
Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)
But wait! Wardlow wants to give an encore to the encore! Sterling gets up on the apron, but Wardlow TOSSES Sterling into the ring! Sterling flounders and begs for mercy! Josh Woods appears and he drags Sterling out of the ring to save him! Wardlow gets a mic to say, “I’ve been hearing a lot on the internet, that Wardlow’s lost it! That the momentum’s gone! Wardlow, he should do this, he should do that. Well let me tell you something! Wardlow is the TNT Champion, and it’s time for me to remind everybody in that locker room, everybody in this business, and all of my fans that have stuck by me since day one, that this is WARDLOW’S WORLD!!”
The War Dog is fired up and ready! Who will step up to him and see whether or not Wardlow’s lost a step?
Darby Allin speaks.
“Ever since we both started in this company, we’ve been competing against each other. Darby wins the TNT Championship, Sammy wins the TNT Championship. Darby does something crazy, Sammy does something crazy. But the one thing we haven’t done is become the AEW World Champion. At one time, I would’ve considered you a friend, but now, I don’t think anybody respects you.” Darby says he won’t even have Sting be ringside. If Sammy wants to win the world title fair, then he needs to prove he doesn’t need anyone else, either. Will the Spanish God accept the Relentless One’s challenge to do this truly 1v1?
Grand Slam Tournament of Champions, Opening Round: Hangman Page VS Bryan Danielson!
The Cowboy fought hard alongside Silver & Reynolds, but they lost out on the AEW Trios Championships. The American Dragon fought hard against Lionheart Chris Jericho, but lost because of a low blow. Both men want redemption on top of another world championship run, but only one can move on! Who faces The Wizard of AEW in the semifinals?
The vacated belt is on display, so both men get a good look at it as they make their entrances. The bell rings and fans rally up as the two stare down. Buffalo wants “COWBOY SH*T!” but Hangman offers a handshake. Bryan dismisses him, so the two circle. They tie up, Bryan headlocks, but Hangman endures and powers out. Bryan rams shoulders but Hangman stays up. Bryan sighs and they circle again. Bryan calls for the knuckle lock and Hangman obliges. They have a test of strength and are in a deadlock at the center of the ring. Hangman powers Bryan down to his knees, but Bryan fights back up and rolls back.
Bryan reverses the wrench on Hangman, then breaks one knuckle lock to get a wristlock. Hangman rolls, reverses it back and wrenches Bryan now. Bryan rolls, hooks a leg and even gets a chinbar. Hangman slips through to that to wrench Bryan again. Bryan pushes Hangman to a corner, the ref calls the ropebreak and counts, Bryan lets off with a hard pat on the shoulder. Hangman storms up on Bryan and Bryan backs away to bail out of the ring. Fans rally and duel while Bryan cools things off. Hangman stays calm and patient as Bryan takes his time returning. They reset, feel things out, and tie up again.
Bryan headlocks, Hangman endures and powers out. They ram shoulders again but neither falls, so Hangman CHOPS Bryan! Hangman eggs Bryan on so Bryan CHOPS! Hangman CHOPS, Bryan is stinging! But then he picks a leg, turns Hangman over, and hooks the legs up! Bryan grabs the arms, and he then STOMPS the knees! Hangman crawls to a corner but Bryan is on him with CHOPS! And KICKS! CHOP! But Hangman turns it around to CHOP back! And forearm! And CHOP again! Bryan staggers away but he comes back with a CHOP! And a CHOP! And a KICK, KICK, KICK! Hangman sits down but Bryan drags him up to wrench the arm.
Bryan whips corner to corner but Hangman reverses. Hangman runs in but into a BOOT! Bryan goes up, but Hangman DECKS him off the top! Bryan ends up on the apron, Hangman triangle jump LARIATS! Fans fire up as Bryan flops to the floor! Hangman takes a moment to take aim, PLANCHA! But Bryan dodges, hammerlocks the arm and POSTS it! Hangman falls, clutching his shoulder, and AEW goes to break!
AEW returns and Bryan isolates Hangman’s arm to STOMP it! Hangman clutches the elbow but Bryan drags him up to top wristlock and arm-drag Hangman down. Bryan isolates the arm again, to stomp it again! Hangman shakes out the arm but Bryan KICKS him in the back! Hangman writhes but Bryan drags him around to wrench the bad arm. Bryan CHOPS Hangman to a corner, but Hangman CHOPS back! Bryan CHOPS, Hangman CHOPS! But that’s Hangman’s bad arm! Bryan KICKS the bad arm, KICKS him to the corner, then KICKS him more! Bryan whips, Hangman reverses, but Bryan goes up and over.
Bryan keeps moving, he ducks ‘n dodges, but runs into a scoop! FALL AWAY SLAM! Even with one good arm, Bryan is sent tumbling out of the ring! Hangman fires up and fans rally behind him as he kips up! Hangman aims again, PLANCHA! Direct hit this time and down goes Bryan! Hangman drags Bryan up and puts him in the ring, and Bryan goes to a corner. Hangman gets in, runs corner to corner, and he clotheslines! But that’s still the bad arm! Bryan swings, but Hangman spins him and fireman’s carries, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Cover, TWO! Bryan survives, showing the toughness of a six-time world champion!
Fans rally up and duel as both men sit up. Hangman shakes out his arm while Bryan checks his legs. Hangman drags Bryan up to Alabama Lift, but Bryan sunset flips it! High stack, TWO! Bryan is in a corner, Hangman runs in, but Bryan drop toeholds him into buckles! Bryan KICKS Hangman, runs corner to corner and DROPKICKS him! Bryan keeps moving, another DROPKICK! And then Bryan runs again, into a POP-UP- NO, Bryan RANAS the bomb away! BUZZSAW! Cover, TWO! Hangman survives, showing the toughness of a world champion in his own right. Jericho is watching backstage, happy to see Bryan struggling.
Bryan stands up and he waits on Hangman to sit up. Hangman does sit up, and Bryan KICKS him! And KICKS him! And KICKS him! BUZZSAW again! Fans fire up as Bryan goes up the corner! But Hangman trips him up! Hangman throws forearms, Bryan throws them back, but Hangman CHOPS! Bryan throws another forearm but Hangman fires off! Hangman climbs up after Bryan now, brings him up and scoops, SUPER FALL AWAY SLAM!! Cover, TWO!! Hangman just goes right to the apron! He takes aim at Bryan, but Bryan bails out the far side! Bryan knew better, and fans cheer as AEW goes picture in picture.
Hangman is frustrated, but he goes after Bryan on the far side. Hangman drags Bryan up, and whips him into railing! Bryan takes a seat in the corner, and Hangman gets some space. Hangman fires up and runs in, to BOOT Bryan down! Fans fire up and Hangman refreshes the ring count. Hangman brings Bryan back up, puts him back in the ring, and has him on the apron to CHOP! Hangman CHOPS Bryan again, shakes out the arm, and gets back on the apron. Hangman drags Bryan up but Bryan WRINGS the arm into the apron! Hangman writhes and clutches the arm while Bryan drags himself up and into the ring.
Bryan crawls his way over to Hangman and they go forehead to forehead. AEW returns to single picture as both men stand. Bryan CHOPS, Hangman CHOPS, repeat! Hangman even CHOPS through the pain! But Bryan EuroUppers again and again, only for Hangman to catch Bryan into a backslide! TWO, and Bryan GERMAN SUPLEXES! Hangman lands on his feet! POP-UP SIT-OUT POWERBOMB!! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives and fans chant “This is Awesome!” as the standing count starts. Hangman sits up first but Bryan crawls to a corner. Bryan drags himself up the ropes but Hangman stands at 4.
Hangman CHOPS Bryan again! And hoists him up top again. Hangman CHOPS again, but that arm is bugging him. Hangman climbs up to the very top, but Bryan slips out! Bryan trips Hangman up, puts him in a Tree of Woe, and fires off KICK after KICK! Bryan runs corner to corner to SLIDING DROPKICK! Then he sits Hangman up out of the Tree, goes up behind him, and rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Bryan then stands Hangman up, for a SUPER BACK SUPLEX! Hangman lands on his feet?!? ROLLING- NO, Bryan boots it, only for the SOUTHPAW! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives, and he gets Hangman’s arm!
Bryan has the omoplata and the LEBELL LOCK!! Hangman endures and fans are thunderous! Hangman moves around, reaches out blindly with Bryan’s wrists in his face, and powers out! Hangman has the legs and he CATAPULTS Bryan out! Bryan skins the cat to get back in! Hangman swings, into a underhook! BUTTERFLY SUPLEX into the ARMBAR! Hangman hurries to move around but Bryan just uses that to omoplata and LEBELL LOCK!! Hangman is caught again! Bryan smothers Hangman, pulls him back, but Hangman fights with his legs! Hangman powers through the hold, and he RAMS knees into Bryan!
Fans are torn while both men are down again. Fans hope these guys “FIGHT FOREVER!” but this has to end somehow! These two have had a time limit draw before, will it happen again? Hangman brings Bryan up to LARIAT! But Bryan brushes that off and eggs Hangman on. Hangman LARIATS again! Bryan still stays up and he eggs Hangman on again. Then he swats the lariat to ROLLING ELBOW! But Hangman ROLLING ELBOWS! Bryan ROLLING ELBOWS! Then he ducks Hangman’s elbow, runs in, but into the DEADEYE!!! Cover, TWO!?!? Bryan survives and Hangman can’t believe it!
Fans are thunderous again as Hangman drags Bryan to a drop zone. Hangman goes to a corner, slowly climbs it, and MOONSAULTS but FLOPS! Bryan runs in, BUSAIKU KNEE!!! But it sends Hangman into the corner! Hangman just tumbles out of the ring! Fans are torn again but Bryan just resets and builds speed! Bryan DIVES! But Hangman blocks it! APRON POWERBOMB!! Hangman goes up top, for the ARIHARA MOONSAULT!! Direct hit but Hangman puts Bryan in the ring! Hangman loads up, slingshots, BUCK- NO, Bryan gets around to O’Conner BRIDGE! BRYAN WINS!!!
Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall (advances to the semifinals)
It seems Jericho’s prediction was right! The American Dragon finds a way to win, and now we get an All Out rematch next week! Will Jericho’s seven times beat Bryan’s six? Or will Bryan avenge his loss in Chicago?
“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry speaks.
“This was never really about a wrestling match. Christian Cage, the only thing that you’ve done is prolonged the inevitable. So go get your little surgery. And when you are back at 100%, I’m not just gonna beat you. I am going to take years of off your miserable life. And Luchasaurus, it’s funny that you used to carry me down to the ring on your shoulders. Because for three years, I carried your entire career on my back! I busted my ass week in and week out to make us champions, when everyone said you were a liability and a joke. And maybe they were right. Maybe what really happened to me at All Out was that a giant anchor was released from around my ankles.
“Sometimes, you can move on from your past. And sometimes, you have to destroy it.” Will Jack Perry make Luchasaurus pay for the sins of Captain Charisma? And when will Christian return to face the consequences of his actions?
AEW returns with Stokely Hathaway and associates on stage.
Lee Moriarty, Ethan Page, W. Morrissey and the Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten, stand with Stokely as he has the mic. “I know, I know, I know. Everyone wants an explanation from ‘the king of ladder matches,’ Stokely Hathaway about what I did at All Out.” He’ll give it to us. All Out was the greatest moment of his career! But wait, staff is telling Stokely to cut, they need to get to the main event. Stokely laughs as he yanks the staff member into the shot. This guy right here is saying they’re low on time and to wrap it up, like Stokely doesn’t work here or something. That’s funny. LISTEN! When Stokely has the mic, you give him the same respect you would your own father! Got it? Good.
Then Stokely DECKS the poor guy! And the Gunn Sons mug him! Ethan talks trash on the staffer, Lee mocks him, and then Ethan DECKS the guy, too! Fans call them all A-Holes, but they don’t care! The Gunn Clubs set the staffer guy up for Morrissey to BOOT down the ramp!! Security rushes out, but will Stokely Hathaway and his minions do what they want when they want?
AEW hears from Claudio Castagnoli and Dax Harwood.
The Swiss Superman says the ROH World Championship has always been a workhorse championship. It is defended everywhere around the world, it doesn’t matter. And this time, it means everything. Dax the Ax knows he comes in as the underdog, he’s “just a tag team guy.” But Dax fights every night with his heart, his soul and for his family. Because if Dax loses, that’s Claudio taking money outta the Harwood family bank account, and Dax can’t have that. Claudio hopes Dax is ready, will this one burn down the house on Rampage?
ROH Pure Championship: Wheeler Yuta VS Daniel Garcia!
This match happened before, but it was in the Dark so did it really even happen? But that doesn’t take away from how big this match here is tonight! The Decoder won the previous time, will he have the formula to repeat history? Or will the Dragonslayer make Buffalo proud with a hometown victory?
As part of Garcia’s entrance, he has Westside Gun live and in person to throw out some Peace “Fly” God! Buffalo fires up for both WSG and Danny G, then Bobby Cruise makes the introductions. The title is raised, and in this newest battle of BCC VS JAS, we see if a pro-wrestler or a sports entertainer brings this title home!
The judges for this match are Matt Sydal, BJ Whitmer and Jerry Lynn. The Code of Honor is NOT upheld as these two are heated rivals, but fans are thunderous at the bell. Yuta and Garcia tie up and are in a deadlock. They go around, Garcia headlocks but Yuta powers out. Garcia runs Yuta over and then struts a bit. Fans fire up and Garcia waits on Yuta. They go again, Yuta gets a leg and trips Garcia to have a toehold. Fans boo which surprises Yuta, but Garcia chinbars and drags Yuta down to then rear mount! Fans cheer as Garcia eggs Yuta on. Yuta gets up, gets in Garcia’s face and pushes him to a corner.
Garcia pushes back, things get chippy, but they reset. Fans are thunderous for Garcia, he ties up with Yuta and they’re in a deadlock. Yuta puts Garcia in a corner, Garcia puts Yuta in the other corner, but then they go to another corner. They go back to center, the collar ‘n’ elbow is tight, and then they go to ropes and tumble out! Both men get up in a huff and stare down, but they remember the no head strikes rule. The ref tells them to get back in the ring, and they both slide in fast. Fans fire up as this continues and AEW goes picture in picture.
Garcia and Yuta feel out knuckle locks, have a test of strength, and they’re in another deadlock. Garcia starts pushing Yuta back, but he bridges, rises up, and trips Garcia! Knuckle lock cover, TWO as Garcia get an arm up! Yuta puts that down, TWO as the other arm comes up. Yuta shifts to a cording hold and he grinds the arm. Garcia endures, powers Yuta to ropes, but Yuta cranks the arm to hold onto the hold! Garcia fights up to his feet, but Yuta passes him through to wrench back into the cording hold! Garcia still endures, whips Yuta into ropes, and then he holds on! That’s Garcia’s first ropebreak, he has two left.
Yuta lets off slowly, but Garcia uses that to hip toss Yuta up and out of the ring! Yuta tumbles to the floor and fans cheer Garcia. Garcia waits on Yuta, then opens the ropes for him. Yuta goes under, so Garcia stomps away on him! The ref counts, Garcia lets off at 4, and he fires back up. Garcia stands Yuta up to CHOP him! Yuta CHOPS back! Garcia CHOPS! Yuta is stinging but he CHOPS back! Garcia CHOPS, Yuta CHOPS, repeat! Garcia kicks low, snapmares, then PENALTY KCIKS Yuta in the back! Garcia tallies a point for himself then covers, TWO! AEW returns to single picture as Garcia kicks Yuta around.
Garcia runs the ropes, but Yuta ducks the kick! Yuta hits an atomic drop, then ENZIGURIS Garcia to a corner! Yuta runs in to A-LIST LARIAT! Yuta then climbs to FLYING FOREARM! Cover, TWO! Fans rally for Garcia as he checks his teeth. Yuta kicks Garcia around now and fans boo. Garcia is annoyed, Yuta kicks him again, and the CHOPS return! They CHOP and CHOP, but Yuta kicks and snap suplexes! Yuta digs his knee into Garcia then covers, TWO! Yuta stomps Garcia, wrenches his arm and grinds the shoulder but Garcia fights up. Garcia whips Yuta away but Yuta KICKS him! Garcia and Yuta just glare at each other now!
Garcia choke grips, Yuta breaks that, but Garcia SLAPS Yuta! Then Garcia SAIDOS! Yuta goes to a corner, Garcia runs in and clotheslines! Then SAIDOS again! And a LAIRAT! Deep stack, TWO!! Garcia drags Yuta around, has the legs, steps through, but Yuta turns that to a cradle! TWO, Garcia BOOTS Yuta, but Yuta rewinds and shoots around, GERMAN SUPLEX! Yuta holds on, he drags Garcia back up, and GERMAN SUPLEXES again! Garcia clubs at the hands but can’t get free before the GERMAN SUPLEX! Yuta is turning Buffalo into Suplex City as he drags Garcia up again! Fans rally for Garcia and he hooks Yuta’s leg to block!
Garcia standing switches to GERMAN SUPLEX Yuta now! Garcia holds on, and he GERMAN SUPLEXES again! Garcia drags Yuta up and GERMAN SUPLEXES again! Each man has hit three, Garcia wants a fourth! But Yuta resists, switches, and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Fans boo as Yuta still has the waistlock! GERMAN SUPLEX! But Garcia switches back to GERMAN SUPLEX again! And GERMAN SUPLEX again! Both men have five, will Garcia go for his sixth? Yuta and Garcia switch and switch and switch, Garcia shoves Yuta but Yuta elbows him away! Yuta goes up but Garcia CHOPS his back! Garcia goes up top, to SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX!!
Fans are thunderous while both men are down, and AEW goes picture in picture! The standing count starts, and it climbs to 5 of 10 before either man sits up. Garcia and Yuta get to ropes, drag themselves up at 7, and then Yuta flops to the apron. Garcia goes out to the apron, too, and they meet at the corner. They glare at each other through the ropes, and Yuta junkyard dog headbutts Garcia! And again! Yuta stands, he drags Garcia up and tears off a crossbar cover. Yuta stands on Garcia’s head ON the crossbar!! The ref reprimands, Yuta lets off and raises his hands. Fans surely boo but he soaks up the heat.
Yuta drags Garcia through the ropes, undoes another crossbar cover, and then stands Garcia up. But Garcia YANKS Yuta into the crossbars! Yuta clutches his ribs and Garcia climbs up! Garcia stands on Yuta’s head on the crossbar! The ref counts, Garcia lets off, and then he shifts position. Garcia drags Yuta up the corner, then to the top. Yuta throws body shots but Garcia gives them back! They brawl, Garcia brings Yuta to the very top, and hits a JUMPING SUPERPLEX!! Both men are down as AEW returns to single picture! The standing count is back and the fans rally up! We’re past 5 of 10 again before either stirs.
Yuta and Garcia push up off the mat and get forehead to forehead. Yuta SLAPS Garcia, but Garcia fires a flurry of palm strikes! Yuta SLAPs, Garcia fires another flurry, and now they’re both swinging palm strikes! It’s fast ‘n’ furious and fans are loving this! They stand up, and they SLAP SLAP SLAP all at the same time! Garcia dodges to DECK Yuta! Yuta is down and the standing count is back! Fans are thunderous for Garcia but Yuta sits up at 5 of 10. He still isn’t up, we’re at 8! Yuta flounders up so Garcia trips him! Garcia steps through, DRAGONTAMER!! Jericho is watching backstage and cheering Garcia on!
Yuta crawls, reaches out, Garcia sits deep but Yuta gets the ROPEBREAK! That’s just Yuta’s first and Garcia lets off in frustration. Yuta stands, and he DECKS Garcia with a haymaker! That is Yuta’s warning for using a closed fist! Yuta snarls and he drags Garcia up by his ears! But Garcia leg scissors Yuta down, ties the legs up again, DRAGONTAMER!!! And it’s deeeeeep! Yuta endures, grabs Garcia around the head and has a CROSSFACE! But Garcia fights up and moves around! But Yuta shifts through, SEATBELLT! TWO!!! Garcia escapes but Yuta is on him! Yuta steps through, but Garcia boots him down!
Garcia stands into the DRAGONTAMER!!! And it’s DEEEEP!! Yuta grabs Garcia in a CHANCERY! DUELING SUBMISSIONS!!! But Garcia pumps his hips, and Yuta TAPS!! Garcia wins!!!
Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission (NEW ROH Pure Champion)
Buffalo explodes because they finally have a champion to get behind! Red ‘n’ black confetti flies as Garcia celebrates his win on his own! But wait! Bryan Danielson walks out now. Is he here to talk with Garcia or with Yuta? Yuta has Bryan stay back, so that he can shake Garcia’s hand! The Code of Honor is upheld and fans love it, but then Bryan snatches the belt from Garcia? Bryan wags his finger, and helps him put it on around his waist! An even bigger show of respect from The American Dragon to the Dragonslayer, but here comes Jericho! Jericho looks stunned! Is he losing Garcia to the pro-wrestling side? Will he take this out on Bryan in their rematch next week?
A great episode of AEW here, not just to follow up All Out but to adjust from the craziness that happened after the PPV. I’m not going to worry about explaining what went down with CM Punk and The Elite, but it is clear that the first punishment is they’re all stripped of the titles they won at All Out. The other seems to be suspensions, as there was no sign of The Elite or Punk around tonight at all. At the same time, Punk is injured again (mishap during a tope suicida at All Out), so he was vacating his title and missing time anyway. But we got a great way to keep things going, such as putting the AEW Trios Championships onto the Best Friends VS Death Triangle match. It was a great match, and I’m surprised Death Triangle won. I think this makes Pac the first dual champion in AEW.
Great move with this tournament of former champions, too. We already got an awesome match out of Bryan and Hangman, but between Jericho’s promo and the feud between BCC and JAS, I should’ve known Bryan would win. The JAS also had good promos, both Jericho hyping up the tournament and also Menard & Parker calling out Hook and Action Bronson. Darby had a very good promo reviewing his rivalry with Sammy Guevara, and their match is going to be awesome stuff for Rampage. Either guy could win because they’ll be facing Moxley, and will then have one hell of a match with Moxley in the semifinals.
Speaking of Moxley, we got great stuff out of him and MJF. I really liked MJF’s sarcastic promo where he made sure to check off all the Face clichés like shouting out the town and being inspirational. Moxley also had a very passionate promo to get us all back on AEW’s side, not worrying about Punk and his issues. MJF will of course challenge whoever wins the tournament in a couple weeks, but I can’t be sure how the finals sort out. Bryan VS Jericho probably goes Bryan’s way since Jericho won at All Out. But then is Moxley going to win against Sammy/Darby? Will we end up with BCC VS BCC, Bryan VS Moxley? That’d be pretty wild.
It was also a great move to have titles up and down the card. Wardlow of course beats Nese to retain the TNT title, and he had a great promo to tell the naysayers to eat their words. I hope Wardlow just goes on this insane streak of defenses, facing all sorts of big names in AEW as well as outside AEW. If things are done between Miro and the House of Black (Malakai Black was let go, but because he has both physical and mental health concerns), maybe we can get Redeemer VS Wardog. Or hell, throw Brody and Buddy at Wardlow to see what happens. We also got a good promo out of Dark Order and LFI to escalate their story, I would love to see Vance & Uno VS LFI.
Great promo from Swerve and Acclaimed as part of the announcement that they are having a tag title rematch. Given All Out’s match was awesome, this rematch is going to be badass. We got a good bit from Hayter and Britt from after All Out. I hope this means Hayter is breaking away from Britt. Being Britt’s sidekick has held Hayter back, especially in a promotion where there’s no women’s tag titles. Storm VS Ford was a great title eliminator match, but I figured Storm would win. Ford only just got back, she can’t just jump the line. Depending on how things with Hayter and Britt goes, I would love if we got a proper 1v1 of Storm and Hayter, no interference or distractions.
Good stuff out of Stokely and his stable, playing with the meta of being told to wrap for sake of TV time. They got some good heel heat beating up that rando, and I suppose we’ll have to wait and see how each of Stokely’s guys gets going in the different title hunts. Obviously Gunn Club/Ass Boys are the tag team, and perhaps W. Morrissey is the world title guy. I would think Ethan is the TNT Championship guy while Lee Moriarty is the All-Atlantic Championship guy, and then any combination of three can go for the trios titles. And then we got a good promo vignette from Claudio and Dax, that is going to be a great title match, but I would think Claudio retains.
And what an awesome ROH Pure Championship match for the main event. Great tie-in to the BCC VS JAS story, of course, and Buffalo was so red hot for Garcia, of course he had to win. Though, Garcia would’ve probably won even if this wasn’t in Buffalo, because it’s just the story of Garcia showing his “pro-wrestler” side. But it meant so much more that the fans were 111% behind him, so this was a great moment for Garcia. Bryan and Yuta showing Garcia respect while Jericho is stunned was a great closing moment, too. This also adds to how Bryan probably wins next week, because Jericho is again going to have a faction falling apart around him.
My Score: 9/10

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs speaks.
He’s back home in Oakland, California as he says, “When you open up the Book of Hobbs, you look death in the face. And you read word-for-word, and look in my eyes, you believe the good word. This is life. A life you know nothing about. A life you want nothing a part of. So whatever higher being you believe in, I want you to look up in the sky, I want you to look down low. Just like everyone has taken everything that’s meant something to me, I’m taking everything that means something to you.” Who will Hobbs take from first to be back where he wants to be?
Chris Jericho is here!
The Wizard is still Le Champion! After a brutal and bloody battle with Tomohiro Ishii, Jericho is still #THEOCHO! The rest of the Jericho Appreciation Society walks out with him while Chicago sings Judas for them. Jericho and Garcia chest bump just to show that the bloody spot on Jericho’s chest doesn’t bother him. Angelo Parker starts by telling Chicago to pipe down because Cool Hand Ange has something to say: “ALL HONOR THE OCHO~!” Fans are bit torn on that but it’s the truth. Jericho says, “Is there any doubt that I am the greatest ROH champion of all time? Any doubt?” Fans are again torn.
Jericho says he’s beaten everyone thrown in his way, including in one of the greatest matches in Dynamite history against Tomohiro Ishii! Fans do agree with that a bit. “I’ve bled for this title, I have sweat for this title, I have earned this title. I am The Ocho. And not even Claudio Castagnoli can come out on the stage and give me a cheap shot, not even that’s gonna slow me down!” So the question to everyone is: who will uncrown the king of ROH? The fans? That four-eyes in the fifth row? But wait, here comes Claudio! Jericho’s jaw starts feeling sore again as Claudio says, “Chris, you asked if there’s any doubt that you are the greatest ROH champion. Well, there is no doubt in my mind that you are not.
“I know that I can beat you. I beat you twice! The problem is, I started doubting myself when I couldn’t beat you when it counts. And to me, the most important thing is believing in yourself. When I came here, I wanted to be the best professional wrestler I can be. And I know I am the best professional wrestler when I don’t doubt myself. So to me, I don’t just need to beat you for this ROH World Champion, I have to beat you!” Jericho says, “Okay, you have to beat me. Maybe you should be more worried about the Blackpool Combat Club since they’re falling apart at the seams, Claudio.”
Claudio says that is a problem. He cannot focus on anything else. He hasn’t slept since Saturday and losing to Jericho. Claudio can’t sleep, focus, can barely talk. It all bothers him. He NEEDS a shot at the ROH World Championship. So he wants another shot at Jericho’s title? Should Jericho give Claudio a shot? Chicago seems to think so! Jericho tells Claudio, “You want it? Forget it.” Fans boo and the JAS laughs. Claudio sighs as Jericho says there is nothing Claudio has to offer Jericho. But then Matt Menard says maybe there is something he can offer.
“Daddy Magic has an idea! Claudio, you’re a hell of a professional wrestler. But let’s not forget there was a time when you were a fantastic sports entertainer. I think you would make an excellent addition to the Jericho Appreciation Society. How about that, Chris?” Jericho likes how Daddy Magic thinks! He’s making Jericho’s nipples hard. Jericho tells Claudio that despite the fact Claudio sucker punched him, Jericho will give Claudio that one more chance. BUT if Claudio loses, and he will lose, he will join the JAS! Claudio considers that challenge.
“You’re right. I was a great sports entertainer. And I still am a great sports entertainer. And I would be a tremendous asset to the Jericho Appreciation Society. But I know deep in my heart, despite all my doubts, and I have a feeling you know as well, I’m an even better professional wrestler! Look in my eyes, Chris. Come Final Battle, I will throw you around like a little kid, and I will beat you for that ROH World Championship! I’ll bring honor back to this title, and I will be the NEW ROH World Champion!” Fans like the sound of that! But will December 10th be Claudio’s final battle as a pro-wrestler?
Backstage interview with Toni Storm.
Renee Paquette sits with the former champion, and knows she and Hayter had an amazing match at Full Gear. Unfortunately, Toni did lose the title. But Renee wants to talk about how Hayter won. Toni says deep down, she’s actually proud. She always knew Hayter could do it, and at Full Gear, they tore the house down. And they got to see just how tough Hayter is. But we didn’t see Jamie Hayter beat Toni Storm, she needed Britt & Rebel again. And if Hayter can look in the mirror and be cool with that, fine. But Toni could never do that. And that’s the difference between them.
Renee steers things to the news from Dynamite that there is no more “interim” and even Toni’s reign counts as a true world title reign, what is her reaction? Well just look at Toni’s face. She never saw the title as “interim.” She went out there, week after week, holding onto the title as if it was always official, because that is what this division deserves. Then with all of these things, what’s next? Toni broke her face losing the belt, she’ll break it again to get it back. When will the Lightning From Down Under strike back against the Hayter?

Backstage interview with Athena.
Lexi Nair notes that The Fallen Goddess is back from suspension, and Athena asks why was she suspended! “We have this big ass TV, a billionaire boss, modern technology, but yet no footage. What am I supposed to do? I got docked a week’s pay, I’ve been suspended, what else do you need from me?” Maybe an apology to referee, Aubrey Edwards? Oh! A public apology! Well, sorry. Oh, then she’ll be reinstated for Monday. Good, dismissed. Athena scares Lexi off, and then talks to the camera. “I was wondering how long it was going to take you to show up, Mercedes. I beat trash bag wrestler after trash bag wrestler after trash bag wrestler, and finally you show up!
“So when are you gonna put the ROH Women’s Championship on the line? Cuz I’m waiting, and I’m game.” The Fallen Goddess is aiming for the OG Badass, but will she be the one shot down?
Hikaru Shida VS Queen Aminata!
Speaking of returns, The Full Metal Warrior is back in action, and she is surely wanting after more gold! She is still International Ribbon Tag Team Champion and Regina de Wave Champion, but will she find her way back to THE AEW Women’s World Championship?
Wait, before the match begins, The Bunny and Penelope Ford frolic their way out here. What do they have with Shida? Aminata just CLOBBERS her from behind in the distraction!

The warrior deals with the queen, but what about the Superbad Girls? They back down for now, but will they pounce on their prey soon enough?
Mark Henry interviews tonight’s main eventers!
Well, more like this afternoon’s. But the World’s Strongest Man says it was a tag match originally, but was promoted to a Trios Match given the history between LFI and Dark Order. But uh, where’s Preston Vance? John Silver says they really have no idea. Evil Uno is searching, but Alex Reynolds promises Number Ten will be here. The LFI have been annoying the crap out of them for months, so this ends here! But Braxton “The Blade” Sutter says, “Nah nah nah nah! Listen, newsflash, slick! It doesn’t matter if Ten shows up, Fourteen, 26, 37! All we know is the three of us are here to kick ass!”
And Andy “The Butcher” Williams says Blade ain’t lying, there WILL be an ass-kicking party tonight! The only ones invited are The Dark Order! Rush says he is sick and tired of talking, he wants to fight! He is ready to fight! He NEEDS to fight! “Let’s go, perros!” Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will El Toro, Butcher & Blade be satisfied with just Three & Four? Or will Vance come through and back up his friends?
Backstage interview with FTR.
Lexi Nair congratulates them on their title defense, adding to their amazing year. Dax says yes, it has been a great year. But please, let him and Cash handle it from here. Dax says, “What a great ’22 it’s been. I’m told I’ve got 30 seconds. What a great ’22 it’s been, and this is my best friend in the world and I love him more than anybody else, aside from maybe my family. And we have a great legacy as a tag team, but 2022 has done something for me that no other year has done. It has allowed me to etch my name with the greatest wrestlers in the world, so right now, I gotta shoot my shot before the year is done, okay?
“I am challenging for Wednesday night, I challenge the best wrestler in the world. What do you say, Bryan Danielson, huh? Me and you, Wednesday night. Top Guys, out.” This match is NOW official! Will Dax the Ax slay the American Dragon?
Six Man Tag: The Dark Order VS Rush, The Butcher & The Blade w/ LFI!
Preston Vance may be Number Ten, but he’s been the number one prospect for La Faccion Ingobernable. But he’s also been resisting their offers because of loyalties to the Dark Order. Will he come through for Alex Reynolds & John Silver? Or will El Toro Blanco and his mercenaries make him pay for being so stubborn?
As the Dark Order make their entrance, there is no Number Ten, so this looks to be 3v2. The bell rings, and the brawl is on 3v2! Silver gets mugged and thrown out but Reynolds takes it to Blade! Rush ROCKS Silver, he and Butcher whip Silver into railing! Blade whips Reynolds but Reynolds dodges in the corner to elbow smash! Reynolds keeps moving, FLYING ELBOW and a BOOT! Fans fire up but Butcher anchors Reynolds. Blade CLOBBERS Reynolds, drags him up and puts him in the corner. Blade CHOPS, Rush pulls Reynolds’ hair, and Butcher tags in. They mug Reynolds with a DOUBLE HEADBUTT!

Johnny Hungy dodges the mercs to DECK Rush! Silver ROUNDHOUSES Butcher, FLAPJACKS Blade, then runs! Silver ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Butcher! And then he OLYMPIC SLAMS Blade! Fans fire up with the Meat Man, and he runs to DIVE onto Butcher! But Butcher catches him and feeds him to Rush’s HAYMAKER! LFI drags Silver up to put in the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.
Blade rains down fists, then he tags in Butcher. Butcher stomps Silver, drags him up, and then throws him out! Rush has the spare cables to LASH Silver! And then CHOKE him! The ref is busy keeping Reynolds back and Rush gets away with choking Silver! Rush drags Silver up and CHOPS him, the ref reprimands that, so Rush puts Silver in. Butcher bumps Silver off buckles, CHOPS him more, then stalks him as he crawls on the mat. Butcher brings Silver over, tags in Blade, and the mercs mug Silver.

Silver crawls but Rush storms in to kick him down. Rush kicks Silver but Silver BOOTS Rush! But Blade trips Reynolds off the apron! Blade hurries away and Butcher CLOBBERS Reynolds! Blade puts Silver in the corner, Rush runs to jump and BOOT! Rush tranquilos while the ref reprimands them all. Blade drags Silver up to KICK him in the back. Blade clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Silver down. Silver endures, fights up, and throws body shots over and over! Silver then KICKS and KICKS and ROCKS Blade! Silver runs, but Blade CLOBBERS him! Tag to Butcher and Butcher drags Silver up to CHOP back down!
Butcher stalks Silver to ropes, drags him back up, and CLUBS him back down. Butcher CHOKES Silver on ropes, and Rush tranquilos while digging his boot in! The ref reprimands them both, Butcher lets off and Rush shrugs. Rampage returns to single picture and Blade tags in. The mercs drag Silver up, fireman’s carry and TOSS, but Silver blocks the kick! Silver spins Blade, SUPERKICKS Butcher, then gets around Blade to STANDING SLICED BREAD! Fans fire up for Silver as he crawls over, but Rush CLOBBERS Reynolds! Fans boo but Rush looms over Silver. Rush kicks Silver around, stomps him, but lets off to argue with the ref.
Bunny talks trash on Silver but here come Uno, Negative One and… YES, NUMBER TEN!! Vance runs to the ring, he gets right up in Rush’s face, and… He CLOBBERS Silver!! Fans boo as Vance is no longer loyal to Dark Order! The mercs hold Uno back, Rush hits BULL’S HORNS on Silver!! Cover, LFI win!! Then Uno is sent hard into the steps! Reynolds rushes in at Vance but Rush CLOBBERS him first! Feed to the DISCUS!! Negative One can’t believe it! His best friend uses his father’s move in this betrayal! Vance flips off Chicago, and Rush drags Uno into the ring. Uno pleads with Vance, but Vance stands him up, for a DISCUS!!
Fans are booing harder as Rush & Vance RIP UP Uno’s mask! They then bring a table to ringside! Reynolds is brought over, Vance and Rush drag him up on the apron, DOUBLE CHOKE SLAM through the table!! Chicago is thunderous with boos and jeers as Vance puts up the Ingobernable fist! Vance walks up the ramp, Negative One asks why, but Vance just throws the mask down at his feet! Number Ten is no more, Preston Vance has shown his true colors! Will this be a new era for LFI in AEW?
A great Rampage, especially for being on at a different time (blame NHL if you wanted this to be on later). FTR VS Top Flight was a great opener, but I figured FTR would win. Ass Boys/Gunn Sons showing up at the end was also a natural move, they’ve been slowly (perhaps too slowly) building to FTR VS Gunns for the ROH World Tag titles and Final Battle is definitely the place to do that. Hell, it’ll be even more obvious should Austin & Colten do something during Dax VS Bryan on Dynamite next week. And speaking of Final Battle, no offense to Claudio, it might’ve just been Chicago being rowdy, but that promo with Jericho wasn’t as crisp as it should’ve been. Jericho VS Claudio II with the stipulation of Claudio joining JAS if he loses is a nice move, and definitely makes it feel like either guy could win.
Great match from Darby VS Henry, but I’m surprised nothing really came of it. I suppose there’s a way to give us Relentless Icons VS Workhorsemen, even though I don’t know what that really does for Darby & Sting. Good promo from Toni Storm, and it was clear that she broke her nose with the puffy black eyes she had. Storm isn’t done with Hayter, clearly, but she’ll have to fight her way up to the front of the line. Ford & Bunny showing up during Shida’s match was an interesting tease, I’m just not sure at what. Perhaps Shida bringing her tag team partner, Ibuki Hoshi, to bring Ice Ribbon Wrestling into AEW’s family of partnerships?
And we got great stuff out of the main event. The Dark Order VS LFI in the main event seemed a bit odd, but it foreshadowed something big happening, so of course Vance turns and joins LFI. It is a shame that The Dark Order has fallen so far since the passing of Mr. Brodie Lee, but I suppose it was inevitable. Vance giving up his mask was obviously more symbolic than anything, as The Dark Order had moved away from everyone wearing masks, and it was really just Vance and Uno. Brodie Lee said to wear a mask, Vance was holding onto that for the memory, but now he doesn’t care because he’s been losing. Vance is going to be a strong addition to LFI, he can be their midcard guy while Rush is a top title guy, and this might be what Vance needs to get up to that level.
My Score: 8.6/10

PLAY BY PLAY
William Regal is in the ring!
Fans boo as he says, “Ladies and gentlemen, would you like to hear from your new world champion, Mr. Friedman?” Fans cheer that! Well, we will hear from him, next week. Fans boo again. Regal says that Mr. Friedman has no time for such places as… Where are they again? Chicago? Oh… Fans chant, “We Want Punk!” but Regal says MJF is on the set of a major motion picture. Fans are surely all wondering, “What is the union between Mr. Friedman and myself?” Fans chant “F U REGAL!” and he just smirks. “So uncouth.” But Regal says he’ll tell us this: a number of weeks ago, Regal sent an email to MJF that we will not be privy to until next week when MJF explains everything.
So next week on Dynamite, the Devil Himself, your NEW AEW World Champion, Maxwell Jacob Friedman, will be here. But someone who is here now is MOXLEY! The former AEW World Champion goes to the ring from the crowd, staring the snarling Sir William Regal down. Fans tell Regal, “YOU F’D UP!” as Moxley gets ever closer. Moxley slowly steps into the ring, but then Bryan Danielson rushes out here! Bryan keeps Moxley from getting at Regal and fans boo! Moxley shoves Bryan but Bryan stands his ground between Moxley and Regal. Bryan gets the mic to say, “Hey! Hey! Hey, listen, Mox. Listen, listen. Hey!”
Bryan says he doesn’t know why Regal did that, and it was a bad thing, but they’ve all done bad things! Fans boo because this was really bad. But Bryan asks Moxley to please not go after Regal. Regal has a bad neck and two bleeds on his brain, Moxley can’t hurt Regal. Moxley stands down, but he is pacing with the bottled up anger. Fans still want Moxley to hit someone. Bryan SLAPS Moxley, and then he apologizes! Bryan then gets on his knees to BEG Moxley to listen! Bryan knows the fans are booing but the struggles that Moxley has dealt with, Bryan’s dad struggled with those same things. This is more than just wrestling.
Bryan says when his dad had those struggles, Bryan didn’t understand. There was only one person who could teach him how and that was Regal. Bryan wants Moxley to tune the fans out and listen to just him. Because of Regal, Bryan could understand his father’s struggles. And for the last ten years of his life before he passed, Bryan was there to love his father, because of Regal! Now just imagine, please, just try to imagine someone teaching Moxley’s daughter to love him in spite of his struggles. Fans call BS but Bryan asks Moxley to spare Regal for Bryan’s sake. Bryan loves Regal. Fans boo that, too.
Moxley sighs and leans against the ropes. Fans keep telling Moxley to go after Regal and Moxley can’t tune them out. Moxley glares at Regal but he looks at Bryan. He takes the mic, Bryan steps aside, and Moxley steps right up to Regal as he says, “Your Lordship… I only want one thing from you. I want you to run. Run far away, as far away as you can, and you never, EVER come back. Right now. Walk. And keep on walking.” Moxley drops the mic, that is his one and only warning. Regal steps out of the ring and fans tell him to GTFO. Regal leaves, being spared from the Maniac’s rage. Fans sing “NANA NA NA, HEY HEY HEY, good bye~!”
Moxley is still rather red, but this was the best he could do to show mercy to Regal. As for MJF, will Moxley hunt him down the moment he’s in an arena?
Backstage interview with Keith Lee.
Renee Paquette tells him the cameras are live, and says we all saw what happened at Full Gear. Where is Keith’s head at after this all came to a head? Keith sighs, but then Swerve steps in. Renee lets them talk in private, and Keith tells Swerve to choose his words wisely. Swerve takes off his sunglasses, Keith takes off his jacket. Swerve looks to the camera, and covers it up. “Let’s talk.” “Without that, huh? Okay.” Is the team formerly known as Swerve In Our Glory still a team at all? Or will they come to an understanding off camera?
AEW All-Atlantic Championship: Orange Cassidy w/ Best Friends VS Jake Hager w/ The Jericho Appreciation Society!
Freshly Squeezed is coming off a big Ten Man Tag win with his Best Friends, but now he’s back to being a fighting champion. Will Cassidy be able to hold onto the title? Or will Rock Hard Hager make everyone APPRECIATE him?
The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if, uh… Whatever.
The bell rings, Cassidy steps to Hager, takes off the sunglasses and gives them to the ref. But Hager takes the glasses to put them on! They do go well with the bucket hat. Cassidy grabs for the hat but Hager won’t let him touch it. So Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets! Cassidy unleashes the “devastating” shin kicks! But Hager swings, only for Cassidy to dodge and SHOTGUN! And kip up! But Hager CLOBBERS Cassidy! Hager talks trash as Cassidy flounders to the corner. Hager storms up, whips corner to corner, but Cassidy tumbles up and out. Cassidy ducks the clothesline to bump Hager off buckles! The purple hat goes flying!
Fans fire up as Hager stares at the hat on the mat. Hager grabs Cassidy with both hands to throw him! Cassidy holds the ropes and he dumps Hager out! Cassidy then sees the hat, and he picks it up! Angelo Parker runs in, OLE as Cassidy baits him with the hat. Matthew Menard runs in, OLE again! Cassidy goes to put the hat but Daniel Garcia snatches it away! Fans boo and Cassidy frowns. Rocky Romero trips Garcia up! And Cassidy has the hat! He ROCKS Hager, DIVES, but Hager catches him! Hager POSTS Cassidy, to then FLAPJACK him on the apron! Parker puts the hat back on Hager! Hager says don’t touch his hat, and AEW goes picture in picture.
Hager flexes while Parker “kicks dirt” at Cassidy. Hager and Garcia secret handshake and then Hager drags Cassidy up. Hager puts Cassidy in the ring, drags him up, and wraps on a BEARHUG! Cassidy endures as Hager carries him around, and then Hager RAMS Cassidy into buckles! Cassidy throws elbows but Hager holds on. Cassidy grabs the hat! Hager thrashes Cassidy around for that! Cassidy drops the hat so Hager drops Cassidy. Hager puts the hat back on, then stalks Cassidy to a corner. Hager digs his knee in, the ref counts, so Hager switches to a boot. The ref still counts, Hager lets off, and both Menard and Parker talk trash at Cassidy.
Best Friends run Parker & Menard off, but Hager drags Cassidy up to put him through ropes. ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager drags Cassidy away to a cover, TWO! Hager keeps cool and sits Cassidy up for a motorcycle stretch. Cassidy endures, fights up, and goes to put his hands in his pockets! Hager stops him, Cassidy keeps trying! They fight for control, but Hager lets Cassidy go to throw him down by his hair! The ref reprimands but Hager soaks up the heat. Hager kneels on Cassidy as Dynamite returns to single picture. Cassidy keeps his shoulders up so Hager kicks him around. Hager then whips Cassidy up and out, only for Cassidy to skin the cat!
Hager CLUBS Cassidy’s hand, KICKS the other, then ROCKS Cassidy! But Cassidy trust falls with Best Friends! They catch him and help him down. Hager runs in and BLASTS Best Friends! But Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Hager hits railing! Cassidy puts Hager in, the JAS go after Cassidy, so Cassidy springboard CANNONBALLS! Cassidy hurries up the corner, leaps at Hager, but Hager catches him again! Hager pops Cassidy around to a suplex, but STUN-DOG MILLIONAIRE hits! Cassidy runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, tilt-o-whirl DDT on the hat! Cover, TWO! Hager is still in this but Cassidy crawls to the corner.
Fans rally up as Cassidy takes off the armband! Cassidy gives the lazy thumbs up, runs in at Hager, but Hager catches him for an URENAGE! Cover, TWO! Cassidy survives and Hager is furious! Hager puts the hat back on and he stomps away on Cassidy. Hager runs corner to corner, HAGER BOMB, but he blocks the boots! ANKLE LOCK!! Cassidy flails around and reaches out but Hager holds on. Cassidy rolls, kicks away but Hager still holds on. So Cassidy throws the hat! Hager ROCKS Cassidy and gets the hat back. ORANGE PUNCH!! Hager is still up so Cassidy victory rolls, Cassidy wins!!
Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall (still AEW All-Atlantic Champion)
Hager’s obsession with his hat costs him, and the champion is still Freshly Squeezed! And of course, Best Friends GROUP- NO, The Factory’s music cuts off the hug! QT Marshall says after Full Gear, there’s a lot of unfinished business. It seems Cassidy has no problem giving out title shots one after another, so… Wait, QT’s mic dies on him. QT still rants as he storms up to the ring, but then the lights turn off! Eerie music plays, and when the lights come back up… JULIA HART is on stage! And she calls forth THE HOUSE OF BLACK!! They’re IN THE RING!! They attack Best Friends!!
The Factory are in shock, but they stay back as Buddy Matthews, Brody King & Malakai Black kick out Best Friends! Fans fire up and The Factory applauds, too. But then the House of Black goes after The Factory! Malakai BOOTS QT, Buddy & Brody BLAST Karter and Johnson! Comoroto gets in but Brody CLOBBERS him! The destruction continues on the outside as the House of Black goes after anyone and everyone they can get their hands on! Referees and presumably the AEW Dark card rush out, but they all get destroyed, too! Malakai tosses one pour soul OFF the ramp! Julia smiles and fans fire up as the House of Black stands tall.
But they’re not done, either! Buddy brings a security guard over, and with Brody, they get him up for the DANTE’S INFERNO on the stage!! Malakai gets a mic and says, “Members of the House of Black… Please rise.” Fans cheer this devastating return, who will the House of Black tear down next?
AEW share “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry’s thoughts from after his Steel Cage Match.
“That was my best friend in the entire world, and at the same time, he’s hurt me worse than almost anybody that I’ve ever met. But at the same time, it was also cathartic to be out there, because all that pain and resentment, it came out. As much as he’s put me through, and as much as I resented him and wanted to kill him, I felt in a way, that we again shared a moment that neither of us will ever forget, and I’m glad that I got to share it with him. And I’m glad I won. I kicked your ass.”
AEW World Title Eliminator Finals: Ethan Page w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Ricky Starks!
The tournament was meant to end at Full Gear, but things happen, and Absolute Ricky Starks couldn’t wrap things up until last Saturday. But now, he and All Ego battle for the chance at the AEW World Championship! Who will MJF be facing when Winter is Coming?
But as the introductions are being made, Stokely has the music stop. “Give it up for the future number one contender for the AEW World Championship, All Ego, Ethaaaaaaaan… PAAAAGE!” Fans boo and Ethan asks, “Oh, you guys don’t like that? You guys think Ricky Starks is gonna win tonight? Well, listen up! When Ricky Starks is in the middle of this ring crying after I beat his ass, all you Chicago babies can join in and cry like the losers you all are!” Fans boo, but then Starks makes his entrance! Fans cheer, but with as much tape as is on Starks, maybe Ethan has a point. The bell rings, fans rally for Ricky as he circles with Ethan.

Starks survives but Ethan slashes his throat! Ethan roars and drags Starks back up to gut wrench. Starks slips off to schoolboy, TWO!! Ethan BOOTS Starks, ROUNDHOUSES, and then runs, but Starks dodges! SPEAR!!
Fans fire up as Starks fires up in a corner! ANOTHER SPEAR!! Cover, Starks wins!!
Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW World Championship)
That was absolutely a gutsy performance! And now, in three weeks, Starks gets his shot at the champion, Maxwell Jacob Friedman! Will Starks make MJF look like a transitional champion? Or will MJF be better than Starks, and you know it?
“Waking up Sunday morning, the reality that I was no longer TNT Champion settled in. I was very angry. And I went back to see what exactly happened, because last thing I knew, I was powerbombing Hobbs multiple times, doing what I always do, finishing the symphony and win. Watched the video back, and I see now that it got interrupted by a belt shot to the back of my head. Samoa Joe, you are not the most dangerous man in the room. You are not the TNT Champion, I am. And this is Wardlow’s World.” Will Wardlow hunt down #TwoBeltsJoe and take his belt back?
AEW shares video of the “encounter” between Jade Cargill and Bow Wow.
The UNDEFEATED TBS Champion and her Baddies were celebrating her 42nd win and her regaining physical possession of the belt. However, them ushering people out of the way at the Millennium Tour red carpet got Bow Wow’s attention. Bow Wow had his security usher them out, which got Jade all heated.
Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & The Baddies.
Renee is with Jade, Kiera Hogan, Leila Grey, and the returning Red Velvet, and asks them all about what exactly happened with Jade and Bow Wow. No comment. No more clout for that “whack ass rapper.” But Jade is happy to finally have the belt back, with no help at all… Kiera and Leila look to the side while Velvet shrugs. But more importantly, Velvet IS back! And to celebrate, it’ll be a Baddie-bration next week in Indianapolis. Wait, why not tonight? Because been here, done that, whack town, moving on. As for Jade’s legal matters, Mark Sterling is back on retainer.
Smart Mark steps in and says, “As far as the Bow Wow situation is concerned, Jade Cargill’s official statement is, ‘No comment.'” Velvet likes that. Now, time to plan the party. They need balloons, champagne, cake, all green! The Baddies head out but Jade has Kiera stay back. Sterling has a document for her to sign? Kiera is agreeing to the assessment that she did not live up to her end of the deal, and as far as anyone is concerned, Kiera is NOT a Baddie. What?! Kiera gets kicked out just as Velvet comes back to the fold! What is Kiera to do now that she’s been kicked to the curb?
AEW World Trios Championships Best of Seven, Match 2: Death Triangle VS The Elite!
If you’re wondering when the first of this series started, it was at Full Gear. Rey Fenix gave in to the dastardly ways of The Bastard and used the bell hammer against Kenny Omega to secure the win, but that doesn’t sit well with Tony Khan. Will The Cleaner & Young Bucks correct another wrong done to them? Or will Fenix, Penta & Pac go up 2-0 already?
Chicago is chanting for “CM PUNK!” as The Elite make their entrance. Don Callis joins commentary again to put over the God of Wrestling, Kenny Omega. Pac has a face brace given the broken nose he suffered at Full Gear. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and it’s time for round two! Omega steps right up to Fenix given the hammer shot, and he shoves Fenix! Fenix says it’s what the Elite would’ve done! Omega sighs, shakes Fenix’s hand, and then hits a V-TRIGGER! Penta and Pac rush in but they get intercepted by the Bucks! The Bucks stomp and throw them out, then they help Omega stomp Fenix.
Fans boo hard, but Matt WRECKS Penta with a dropkick! Nick DECKS Pac, and Omega drags Fenix up. The Bucks coordinate, they put one out on Penta and Pac, for DOUBLE APRON POWERBOMBS! Omega whips Fenix to SKY HIGH SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Matt whips Penta into railing, then whips him back the other way! Penta runs back at Matt to SLINGBLADE! Nick FLYING RANAS Penta! But Pac runs in to SHOTGUN Nick! Omega DECKS Pac from the apron, and fans boo as he sets up. The Terminator Drums still start, and the Bucks set up the Bastard. Omega says night night, runs, but Fenix SOMERSAULT CUTTERS!
Fenix goes up and up to TORNILLO onto everyone!! Chicago is thunderous, and even sing “OLE~ OLE OLE OLE~!” as Fenix puts Omega back in. Fenix drags Omega up, tags Pac in, snapmare and Penta gets in. They KICK, KICK and KICK, then TRIPLE BASEMENT DROPKICK! Fenix drags Omega into position, Penta runs to wheelbarrow, VICTORY SPLASH MOONSAULT COMBO! Pac covers, TWO! Pac goes to a corner, springboards, but Omega gets under! Omega waistlocks, Pac switches, Omega switches, Pac switches back, Omega elbows out hard! Pac falls, clutching his busted nose, and the ref has Omega back off.
Omega argues with the ref, but Nick PENALTY KICKS Pac! Matt BLASTS the Lucha Brothers! Matt goes up top now and ARIHARA MOONSAULTS! Direct hit on the Lucha Bros, and Nick puts Pac in for Omega. Nick does his best Macho Man while Omega looms over Pac. Omega drags Pac up, Pac ROCKS Omega with forearms! Pac fires off hands, Omega hits back, but Pac ROCKS Omega! Pac runs in but Omega BOOTS him away! Omega runs to KOTARO KRUSHER! Cover, TWO! Omega is annoyed but he tags Matt in. Matt swaggers and jogs around Pac, before dropping the fist! AEW goes picture in picture as Matt stalks Pac to a corner.
Matt stands Pac up to DECK him with a right! Matt drags Pac back up, Nick waves him over, and Matt bumps Pac off Nick’s boot. Nick tags in, stomps Pac around, then he taunts Fenix & Penta with Latino Heat. Nick drags Pac up, Omega and Matt put their feet up, and Nick bumps Pac off both boots! Nick SPITS at Fenix! The ref has to keep Fenix back, and Nick drags Pac up. Tag to Matt, Matt fires up and aims, to slingshot and… Fall on his butt. Maybe copying Hangman is harder than he thought. Nick CLUBS Pac down and stomps him! Matt says his ankle gave out! Seems he’s mocking a certain someone with that.
Matt drags Pac up, grins, and bumps Pac off Nick’s and Omega’s boots! Tag to Omega and Omega says they’re going to go another round! They get fans to count along “FOUR!” but Pac throws body shots! Omega CLUBS Pac, whips him in, but Pac reverses! Omega hits the Bucks’ boots! And then the Lucha Brothers CLOBBER the Bucks! Dynamite returns to single picture, Pac crawls to his corner, but Matt trips Penta off the apron! Omega storms up on Pac, drags him up, and Omega wrenches Pac’s arm, to BITE it! The ref counts, Omega lets off and argues with the ref again. Pac goes to ropes, Omega runs over, but Pac sidesteps to SNAP GERMAN!
Fans fire up while Pac and Omega are both down. Pac crawls, Omega sits up, hot tags to Penta and Matt! Penta CROSSBODIES the Bucks! Then mule kick for Matt, wheelbarrow roll with Nick and DDT for Matt! Tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER for Nick! Tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER for Matt! Tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER for Omega! Fans are thunderous as Penta tags Fenix. Fenix goes up and up to FLYING ARM-DRAG Matt! Nick kicks Fenix to a corner but is put on the ropes! Fenix CHOPS Matt, knuckle locks and goes up and up again, SUPER STEINER for Nick! Matt SUPERKICKS Fenix! Fenix kips up to SUPERKICK back!
Fans are electric as everyone is down around ringside! Fenix and Matt crawl for their corners, hot tags to Pac and Omega! Omega swings but misses! Pac SOBATS, KICKS, “This is Awesome!” as Pac SOBATS again. Pac runs but into a cheap shot! Matt grins, Omega V-TRIGGERS from behind! SNAP DRAGON! Tag to Nick, tag to Matt, and the Bucks BLAST the Lucha Brothers. The Bucks sit Pac up, and they pull the face brace off!! The ref reprimands but it isn’t really illegal to do that. Pac throws body shots on Nick! And on Matt! Omega CLUBS Pac, then goes to the corner to tag back in. Omega then tags Matt back in, and all three surround Pac.
Pac sits up, the Elite fire sup, TRIPLE SUPERKICK! Cover, the Lucha Bros break it! The Bucks throw Penta out, then Fenix. Nick builds speed and goes up, up and ESCALARAS to take out the Lucha Bros! Matt tags Omega in and Pac is on the ropes. Omega says BANG and runs, V-TRIGGER!! Then the Electric Chair Lift, ONE-WINGED- NO! Pac slips off, kicks and whips but Omega reverses to fireman’s carry! Fans boo, he better not! GO TO SLEEP!!! Cover, TWO!?!? The Bastard survives and Omega is furious!! Omega tags Matt, Matt drags Pac up and Nick sets up on the apron. But Fenix tightrope walks to KICK Nick!
Pac victory rolls, TWO!! Omega runs in but Fenix dumps him out! Fenix DIVES to take out Nick and Omega at the ramp! Pac dodges Matt, waistlocks, but Matt gets to ropes. The ref is checking on everyone on the outside, Matt LOW BLOWS Pac! Fans boo and Alex Abrahantes points it out, but the damage is done! Matt gets the bell hammer! But Penta slithers up behind him to shout, “CERO! MIEDO!” But DOS HAMMERS! BAM to Matt!! Pac covers, Death Triangle wins!!
Winners: Death Triangle, by pinfall (lead the series 2-0)
Fenix and Penta argue about resorting to the hammers all over again, but in the end, they’re up big on The Elite! Will Death Triangle look to finish this off before the New Year? Or will Omega & The Bucks get on the board in Indianapolis?
Renee Paquette is on stage.
“Chicago, what a night we have had so far! Now, I am out here with a massive announcement that pertains to the Women’s Division. Due to the extent of the injuries to the AEW Women’s World Champion, Thunder Rosa, and the uncertainty of when she could return to action, AEW and Thunder Rosa have reached a mutual agreement. AEW management has been forced to ask Thunder Rosa to relinquish the championship. Thunder Rosa was a fighting champion for AEW, she is willing to step aside and forfeit the title to the benefit of AEW, but more importantly, to the benefit of all of the women of AEW.
“Now that being said, please join me in welcoming your NEW AEW Women’s World Champion, Jamie Hayter!” Fans cheer as the interim is no longer interim, and Hayter walks out on stage with Britt and Rebel. This is the Hayter Era and Renee congratulates her. How does she feel? Britt speaks up to say, “Renee, thank you for telling all these people what they already knew, and that is that Jamie Hayter is the undisputed AEW Women’s World Champion! And let me let you in on a little secret, Ne-Ne. We were never even considering the word ‘interim,’ it’s not even in our vocabulary. Now take this mic, step aside, and let the champ walk to the ring.”
Britt follows Hayter, and they’re ready to take on some hungry competition. Will “The Killer & The Pillar” crush the hopes of four contenders all at once? Or will someone snatch a golden ticket off Hayter on the way to the holidays?
Triple Threat Tag: Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter w/ Rebel VS TayJay VS Willow Nightingale & Sky Blue!
AEW returns as the Jericho Appreciation Society’s Brazilian Goddess and Star of the Show make their entrance. In this kind of Triple Threat, only two teams are legal at any time, so Tay steps to the champ! Tay and Hayter tie up, Hayter wrenches and wristlocks. Tay endures, pries free to wrench back and she hammerlocks. Tay then waistlocks, but Hayter headlocks back. Hayter hits a takeover, Tay rolls her to a cover, ONE! Hayter holds on, Tay fights up but can’t power out as Hayter holds on tight. Tay powers out to a headlock of her own, but Hayter powers out to run Tay over. Tay gets up into a kick and whip, and Hayter runs her over again.
Hayter hauls Tay up but Anna gets in! TayJay double suplex but Hayter fights that, to DOUBLE SUPLEX TayJay! Fans fire up and Hayter drags Tay up to SNAP HAMMER! Cover, TWO! Hayter drags Tay up, bumps her off buckles, and she tags Britt. Britt fires forearms on Tay, CHOKES her, and then lets off at the count. Hayter CHOKES Tay but Tay fights though. Britt full nelsons and snapmares Tay to a ghost pin, TWO! Britt fires forearms on Tay, whips her to ropes, then follows, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then SLINGBLADES! Cover, TWO! Britt brings Tay up, but Tay wrenches out to ROCK Britt! Tay brings Britt around, tags Jay, and they double suplex Britt!
Britt flounders to tag in Willow! Willow runs in but Anna ROCKS her first! Anna whips Willow to the corner, Tay whips her in, but Willow dodges Anna to ROCK Tay and whip her into Anna! Willow SANDWICHES then LARIATS TayJay! Snapmare and BOOT for Anna! Willow scoops Anna to SLAM her! Skye runs in to wheelbarrow with Willow, WHEELBARROW SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Willow frowns and brings Anny up. Willow whips, Anna reverses, and Tay gets a cheap shot in! Willow swings on Tay but Tay HOTSHOTS her! Anna THROWS Willow out hard, then Tay drags her up! Tay whips Willow hard into railing!
Anna soaks up the heat while Tay puts Willow in, and AEW goes picture in picture. Anna CHOKES Willow on the ropes, lets off as the ref counts, and she bumps Willow off buckles. Anna fires forearms, tags in Tay, and they pull Willow’s hair. Tay BOOTS Willow, then brings her around to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Tay is frustrated but she drags Willow up to CLUB away on her. Tay drags Willow up but Willow fires forearms back! Tay DECKS Willow! Tay drags Willow up, RAMS her into the corner, then tags Anna. Anna runs in to back elbow! Anna stands Willow up to dig her boot in! The ref counts, Anna lets off, and Willow fires off forearms!
Willow fireman’s carries but Anna slips off to ROCK Willow again. Anna kicks her around, then CHOKES Willow on the mat. The ref counts, Anna lets off, and she bumps Willow off buckles. Anna ROCKS Willow, CHOKES her, then tags Tay. Anna still CHOKES Willow until Tay stomps Willow down. Tay CHOKES Willow on the ropes! Tag to Anna, she drags Willow up, but Willow powers her way towards the DMD corner! Tay rushes in to CLUB Willow to stop that, then she takes over with the DD TAY! Cover, Britt breaks it! TayJay talk trash with Killer & Pillar, but Sky e tags in! Skye goes up, and CROSSBODIES TayJay!
Fans fire up as Chicago’s own SMASHES Jay! Dynamite returns to single picture, Skye whips and SHINING WIZARDS Jay at the ropes, then SUPERKICKS her down! Skye SUPER- NO, Jay blocks and spins Skye but Skye KICKS Anna down! Cover, Hayter breaks it! Hayter whips Jay to the corner, Britt tags in off Jay, and Hayter ELBOWS Jay down! Britt runs at Skye to spin her and FISHERMAN SCREW! But Willow is in to fireman’s carry! DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Jay rushes in to HOOK KICK! Hayter BOOTS Jay! Tay BOOTS Hayter! Skye and Tay DOUBLE LARIAT! They stay up, to DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE!
Skye and Tay still stand, Skye SUPERKICKS Tay! Tay wobbles around, into the CODE BLUE!! But Britt SUPERKICKS Skye! Britt feeds Skye to the HATE BREAKER! Then CURB STOMP! Cover, Britt & Hayter win!
Winners: Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter, by pinfall
The Pillar & The Killer are still a successful tag team, and the Hayter Era begins! Who will be the first to step up to the new champion?
Backstage interview with FTR and Top Flight.
Renee is with “two of the best tag teams in all of AEW,” and Dante & Darius had something to say. But Dax Harwood speaks up first. He doesn’t throw out compliments a lot, but he must say, Darius had a string of bad luck but he’s always been impressive. And Top Flight with AR Fox almost became World Trios Champions last week. That impressed Dax, too. So what he wants from now on, for the next few decades to come, is Top Flight to take over tag team wrestling. Darius appreciates that, but there’s a reason Top Flight wanted to talk. And speaking of impressed, Top Flight’s been impressed with FTR for years.
Darius says it is a dream match, Top Flight VS FTR. So if they’re all impressed, FTR will put the ROH World Tag Team Championships on the line for Black Friday Rampage. Cash says they have always liked Top Flight, and they don’t say no to a fight. They’re on! They all shake hands, and Dante says, “Top Flight, out.” Dax says that’s clever, but that’s kinda FTR’s thing. Will the ROH World Tag titles still be FTR’s thing after the special afternoon Rampage?
The Acclaimed is here!
Max Caster & Anthony Bowens finally settled things with Swerve & Keith, and they’re still AEW World Tag Team Champions! Caster has a rap ready, “Acclaimed back at it with the story of the year, cuz we broke up Keith & Swerve at Full Gear. New champs, Hayter, MJF, but Acclaimed retained, we’re staying at the apex. You wanna shot, put your name on the ballot, and get your nuts slapped like Lethal & Jarrett! Yo, we cuttin’ all the dead weight. Chicago knows, it’s Acclaimed Every Wednesday!” Bowens says, “CHICAGOOOO~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Cut the music.” The music stops and fans sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!”
Bowens says, “Chicago, it’s good to be back! And there’s’ a lot to be thankful for. It’s Thanksgiving Eve! Starting with Max and I retaining the AEW tag team titles, further proving that EVERYONE! LOVES! The Acclaimed! And not only that. My shoulder’s feeling better. But most importantly…” Billy Gunn unwraps the fingers! So of course, “SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS~!” But then Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh interrupt from the tron. Sonjay has them stop right there. Did he just hear their names come outta the Acclaimed’s mouths?! Lethal warns them to keep Jarrett’s name out their freakin’ mouths!
Speaking of, Double J steps into frame to say, “Listen up, Slap Max! And you two, Daddy Ass, and Junior Ass, and all you other AEW ass clowns! You wanna talk smack? Well Max, I’ll give you something to rap about. Acclaimed, you best be watching your backs.” Fans chant, “TNA SUCKS!” and Billy says, “Somebody get that old ass off my screen, would ya?” Fans cheer for that! Billy has pull around here cuz he’s Billy. And now, the moment everyone’s been waiting for… Chicago, SCISSOR TIME!! And the fingers scissor!! The Acclaimed doesn’t sweat Double J and Jay, but will the #LethalOutlaws come for the gold soon enough?
ROH World Championship: Chris Jericho VS Tomohiro Ishii!
The Wizard is still “Ring of Jericho” Champion after Full Gear because, whether he wanted to or not, Sammy Guevara played his part in that Fatal 4 Way. But now, the Stone Pitbull is coming after Le Champion! Will Ishii prove he’s not that Young Lion Jericho remembers? Or will Jericho check another name off the list?
The introductions are made by Bobby Cruise, the belt is raised, and we see if even Ishii must hail #THEOCHO!
The bell rings and Jericho already flips off Chicago. And then he flips off Ishii. Ishii just steps to Jericho, Jericho tells him he’s a BAKA KOUHAI (stupid junior), but then Ishii SLAPS him! Jericho snarls and SLAPS back! Ishii SLAPS, Jericho SLAPS, it’s a SLAP fight! SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP SLAP and fans fire up as the shots keep going! Ishii ROCKS Jericho with that last one, then snapmares to KICK him! Jericho winces and rolls out of the ring. Ishii waits on Jericho, and even holds the ropes open for his senpai. Jericho doesn’t accept, he gets in on the other side. Jericho throws forearms but Ishii eggs him on!
Jericho throws forearm after forearm but Ishii doesn’t budge! Then Ishii starts throwing forearms in return! Fans fire up as the forearms go back and forth now! Forearm after forearm after forearm, but then Jericho gets the edge! Jericho runs, into a SAIDO! Ishii runs but Jericho avoids the sliding lariat! But Ishii blocks the Code Breaker! Ishii throws Jericho away, but Jericho ducks Ishii’s enziguri! Fans fire up as the two stand off. Jericho and Ishii check their cheeks, they circle again, and they tie up again. Jericho and Ishii are in a deadlock, Jericho headlocks, but Ishii powers out. They RAM shoulders, and they yell at each other!
Ishii runs, RAMS Jericho, then Jericho runs to RAM Ishii! Ishii rebounds to run Jericho over! Fans fire up and Ishii finally feels those collisions. Jericho goes to a corner, Ishii storms over, but Jericho SLAPS! SLAPS! SLAPS! Ishii just eggs Jericho on, then SLAPS back! And CHOPS! Jericho CHOPS and Ishii winces. Ishii CHOPS and Jericho sputters! Jericho CHOPS, Ishii CHOPS, and Jericho staggers back. Jericho snarls, CHOPS, but Ishii CHOPS back! Jericho CHOPS, Ishii CHOPS, repeat! They CHOP and CHOP and CHOP, then they both wobble as they clutch their stinging chests while AEW goes picture in picture.
Jericho CHOPS again, but Ishii CHOPS again! Jericho roars, CHOPS, CHOPS, and CHOPS! Ishii CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS in return! Jericho drops to his knees and Ishii finally feels the pain. Ishii taunts Jericho-senpai, and Jericho comes back to CHOP! Ishii CHOPS, the CHOP fight is back on! Jericho’s chest is bleeding from one spot! But Jericho still CHOPS Ishii! Ishii CHOPS back! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Ishii just keeps hitting that bloody spot! But Jericho CHOPS back! Ishii CHOPS again! Ishii eggs Jericho on, then CHOPS again! Jericho CHOPS, Ishii CHOPS, they just keep going!
Ishii CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Jericho wobbles to ropes but Ishii CHOPS him more and more! The ref warns about getting up high, but then Jericho blocks to COHP and CHOP and CHOP in return! Jericho’s arm is tiring out! But he still CHOPS! Ishii CHOPS, Jericho CHOPS, repeat! The CHOPS go harder and harder, and Chicago gives this a standing ovation! Jericho CHOPS, Ishii ROARS, Jericho CHOPS! Ishii CHOPS, Jericho CHOPS, and they CHOP as Dynamite returns to single picture! Jericho’s chest is so red, and not even from the blood! Fans hope they “CHOP FOREVER!” At this rate, they just might!
The CHOPS just keep going, and Jericho finally gets the edge! But Ishii just roars again! To CHOP Jericho off his feet!! Jericho sits up a bloody mess, Ishii rests against ropes, and fans are loving this. Jericho and Ishii get back up, to CHOP even more!! Ishii CHOPS Jericho to the corner, he keeps giving CHOPS, then he whips corner to corner. Jericho reverses, but Ishii comes back to run him over! Jericho goes to a corner, Ishii runs in and Jericho BOOTS him! Jericho runs to LARIAT Ishii into the corner! Jericho fires off point blank clotheslines over and over! Ishii sits but Jericho keeps after him with stomps!
The ref backs Jericho off, and he drags Ishii back up. Jericho CHOPS Ishii, then climbs up to rain down fists! Jericho goes all the way to nine but Ishii brings him out to POWERBOMB! Stack cover, TWO!! Ishii and Jericho are both down and fans rally up. Ishii rises first, and he waits on Jericho. Ishii runs, LARIATS, but Jericho stays up! Jericho eggs Ishii on, Ishii runs but Jericho BOOTS him! Ishii roars at Jericho, Jericho roars back! They both run, and Jericho CLOBBERS Ishii with the cross chop! Ishii is on the apron, Jericho triangle jumps, into an ELBOW from Ishii! Ishii drags Jericho up, to suplex!
Jericho fights the suplex, is on the apron, and he kicks low to APRON DDT!! Both men are down and fans lose their minds! The ring count starts while both men are down. Ishii stirs at 4 of 10, but Jericho slowly stands at 6. Jericho ROCKS Ishii, Ishii ROCKS him back, and they go forearm for forearm! They hear the count reach 9 and they both slide in! Jericho ROCKS Ishii, Ishii ROCKS Jericho, and the forearms keep going! Ishii falls, Jericho kicks him around! Jericho runs, into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Jericho gets up, he GERMAN SUPLEXES Ishii! But Ishii is up, only to run into another GERMAN SUPLEX!
Ishii is up! But hen he falls back down! Jericho LIONSAULTS! Cover, ONE?!?! Fans are thunderous and Jericho is shocked! Jericho ROCKS Ishii, and hits a CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!!! Ishii survives and no one can believe it! “This is Awesome!” as Jericho waits on Ishii. Ishii slowly rises, Jericho runs in, but Ishii swats the Judas Effect to HEADBUTT Jericho down! Fans are thunderous as Ishii roars again! Ishii sits Jericho up, runs and SLIDING LARIATS! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives but Ishii just roars again! Ishii drags Jericho up, but Jericho suplexes! Ishii fights that but Jericho trips him!
Jericho has the legs, he turns but Ishii bridges to throw Jericho! Ishii STEALS THE CODE BREAKER! Fans are thunderous and Ishii runs, to LARIAT!! Cover, TWO!!! Jericho is still in this! Ishii drags Jericho up, suplexes, but Jericho fights! Jericho wrenches, Ishii fires forearms and boxing elbows! ENZI- NO, Jericho blocks the kick! WALLS OF JERICHO!!! Ishii endures as Jericho sits deep! Fans are thunderous as Ishii crawls and claws around, but Jericho drags him away from ropes! Ishii still fights, tucks and rolls but Jericho throws down forearms! Jericho turns Ishii around again, LION TAMER!!! Ishii endures, but he FLIPS JERICHO OFF! Then he taps! Jericho wins!!
Winner: Chris Jericho, by submission (still ROH World Champion)
The Ocho did it without cheating! Jericho may not realize it, but he might be just as much a pro-wrestler as anyone! But he still wants after Ian Riccaboni!? Instead, CLAUDIO comes out to DECK Jericho! The Swiss Superman sends a message to Le Champion, we will see these two fight at Final Battle?
What a great post-PPV episode for AEW. When MJF wasn’t advertised for showing up tonight, I just knew he was doubling down on being a Heel by acting high and mighty now that he’s world champion. But we got a great segment from Regal, Bryan and Moxley. Moxley is understandably PISSED, and Bryan defending Regal was also great stuff. This isn’t necessarily Blackpool Combat Club breaking up so much as Regal defecting to MJF’s side, but this is just one more nail in the coffin. And they even kept “MJF never really fired The Firm” alive, since Starks won the Eliminator Tournament in a great match with Ethan Page. MJF VS Starks is going to be great stuff, and this whole MJF era is going to be a lot of fun.
I actually liked that Keith and Swerve didn’t argue or fight on camera, because this is a very creative take on a tag team breaking up. I feel like them reuniting as a team isn’t likely, but even if they do, it is only inevitable that they finally come to blows and have their own singles feud. Great stuff from Cassidy VS Hager, especially with all the antics surrounding the purple bucket hat. Cassidy retains, of course, but I like that the House of Black used this opportunity to return and just beat the crap out of everyone. I am thinking Malakai gets in on the All-Atlantic title, and we could see Buddy & Brody go for the tag titles.
Wardlow of course wants the TNT title, and I’m thinking they set up a match for Winter is Coming. Joe can go to Final Battle as a double champion, probably stay double champion, and then we’ll see if Wardlow can take the TNT title off Joe. Good promo from The Baddies but a shame that Kiera was the most loyal Baddie yet she’s the one getting kicked out. Maybe Kiera teams up with Diamante and they go after Jade together. It’s also great that the “interim” is gone, Hayter is THE champion (and apparently Toni Storm will be retroactively). Now all we need is her to break away from Britt. We did get a great Triple Threat Tag with Hayter and Britt winning, and I wonder if Britt ends up the #1 contender, compelling her and Hayter to have a match. After all, wins and losses matter.
Though, that doesn’t explain Lethal & Jarrett calling out The Acclaimed like they’re up next or something. Jarrett & Lethal lost to Sting & Darby, it should be Sting & Darby up next, except that not even AEW does Faces VS Faces or Heels VS Heels. Top Flight VS FTR is going to be awesome, but I think FTR wins, and then they can set up something for Final Battle. Still expecting it to be Austin & Colten Gunn, they have been getting at FTR so much that it just makes sense.
That Trios Championship Best of Seven match was awesome stuff, but also what a wild moment because fans were loud for both sides of the CM Punk argument. Most of Chicago was pro-Punk but there was still a vocal minority saying “F CM Punk.” The Elite added on by trolling Punk with mocking how Punk hurt himself doing the Buckshot and what not. To my surprise, The Elite didn’t win this one, either! And it was because Penta used a hammer! It seems all of Death Triangle is going to have to come to terms with Heel tactics if the team is to stick together. As for The Elite, they may have to keep an eye on those hammers. I’m thinking The Elite make a comeback no later than Winter is Coming. And I would think this goes all the way to the seventh match, that’s how epic these two teams are.
And that was an awesome main event! Jericho, for all his character’s talk of sports entertainment being superior, reminded everyone that he is an icon for a reason. He and Ishii really brought the Strong Style, but I had a feeling Jericho was going to retain. And Claudio clobbering Jericho as he was calling out Riccaboni was good stuff. Clearly, Claudio VS Jericho is happening at Final Battle, and that could be an epic match on the level of this main event. I honestly can’t be sure who else AEW can bring in for Jericho to face, but I can’t see Jericho losing the title just yet. Maybe the Jericho Appreciation Society will bring out a list of former ROH champions to face.
