The war between the Jericho Appreciation Society and the Blackpool Combat Club is far from over! The ROH World and ROH Pure Champions team up against the men they took these titles from! Will #THEOCHO and the Dragon Slayer continue to bury pro-wrestlers and the legacy of ROH? Or will the Swiss Superman & The Decoder finally put the JAS in their place?

The BCC have avenged themselves against the ROH World and ROH Pure Champions! Will we see a rematch for each title in the near future?


Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Renee Paquette is with the American Dragon at the “Mongo Position” as she asks him about having his first match since losing out on the ROH World title, and it being against the JAS’s Sammy Guevara. Bryan says if he’s being honest, he’s frustrated. Frustrated that he lost to Jericho. Frustrated that Garcia turned his back on Bryan and hit him with that title belt. And frustrated that Yuta talked back to Bryan last week in their interview together! Bryan knows a lot of people hate Sammy, but Bryan has no problems with him. Well, other than his smug face and his stupid vlogs.

But all this frustration pent up in Bryan, for Jericho, Garcia, and Yuta, as Yuta walks up to Bryan, all of this will be taken out on Sammy tonight. Yuta says good! He’s glad Bryan is finally mad! Cuz did he see what just happened? Claudio & Yuta beat Jericho & Garcia! Yuta tells Bryan that he isn’t Bryan’s son or some kid, he’s a “grown ass man!” So if Bryan has problems with Yuta…! Bryan and Yuta start shoving, Claudio gets in the middle of it and shouts “STOP!” Regal also steps in. Claudio says this is a great day, because Claudio just pinned the ROH World Champion. Yuta did great, too. On top of that, it is Yuta’s birthday. And, Bryan is gonna beat the crap outta Sammy.

But after this match, the BCC is gonna sit down and talk it out like adults. Alright? Bryan and Yuta accept that, and Bryan heads out. Is the BCC going to be able to stick together with the JAS getting under their skin?


A message from… The Elite?

Kenny Omega’s voice is heard saying, “Myself, Nick & Matt, we set out on a path to change the world.” Footage from the AEW press conference in January of 2019 and then of Dynamite’s debut has The Elite erased from the footage. Every pivotal moment of The Elite’s AEW career is being erased. Are they saying AEW can’t be AEW if there’s no Elite?


Backstage interview with The Jericho Appreciation Society.

Tony Schiavone is with the full JAS, with Sammy, Tay Melo & Anna Jay “A S” joining Jericho and the others. There are some mic problems, but obviously they’re upset after that loss to the BCC. Menard shouts if Schiavone saw what happened out there. Garcia says the “Blackpool Cheater Club” makes him sick to his stomach! Jericho asks, “Can you believe that a man like Claudio Castagnoli would accept victory when there is a baseball bat in the middle of the ring, the entire world to see…” Schiavone brings up that Jericho brought that bat to the ring. Yes, but it was in the ring when the BCC won!

Jericho says he’s fired up, and Garcia’s fired up, and all of the JAS is fired up! All bets are off! Jericho isn’t just after former ROH World Champions! He’s after former ALL ROH champions! Pure Champions! Tag Team Champions! Women’s Champions! Jericho doesn’t care! He issues an open challenge to ANY former ROH champion to face #THEOCHO! And it won’t be a pretty sight! Claudio, this will be on you! And Sammy says tonight, he’ll do what he always does, and put on a show like no one has seen before, because he is that damn good. He’s gonna beat Bryan’s ass, again! There’s a birthday present for you, Yuta!


AEW World Tag Team Championships #1 Contenders Match: FTR VS Swerve In Our Glory!

Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood are the TRIPLE Champions, having the AAA World, ROH World and IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team titles to their names, but they still want more. They’ve been sitting on the number one spot for months now, but must defend that before challenging The Acclaimed. Will FTR make everyone #FearTheirRise? Or will the Limitless House once again go for the gold?

Oh, look at that. The Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten, are doing their bad FTR cosplay again to taunt FTR. The teams in the ring sort out, but then The Acclaimed arrive! Fans fire up as Caster, Bowens and Daddy Ass chair scissor! They watch from the ramp, and we start with Cash and Swerve. The fans all sing, “Oh~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” but Swerve and Cash tune that out. They approach, feel things out, and Cash shoots in but Swerve pushes him away. They go around some more, tie up, and Cash puts Swerve in the corner. Swerve turns it around, but Cash arm-drags him away. Swerve dusts himself off and fans rally for the action.

Cash and Swerve feel tings out, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Cash shoots in, gets around, headlocks and grinds. Swerve endures, fights up and headlocks back. Fans rally for “F T R!” as Cash powers out but Swerve goes up and over and gets around to O’Conner Roll and Eddy Gordo RANA! Cash stands up but Swerve does a dance and fans applaud. The Gunn Sons are annoyed as Swerve flicks a hair tie at Cash. Cash takes that to put his hair up. Cash and Swerve tie up, Cash wrenches and wristlocks, then hits a fireman’s carry takeover to tag in Dax. Dax kicks low, snap suplexes, and then drops a leg! Cover, ONE!!

Dax wrenches but Swerve throws a body shot! Swerve tags Keith and fans boo. Keith is a little surprised but he steps in to rush Dax. Dax tries to arm-drag but Keith is way too big!

Swerve jumps in but he gets a double punch, too! FTR both run but Keith hurdles them both!! Then he drops to DOUBLE CROSSBODY!! Fans fire up for that and even The Acclaimed applaud.

Swerve tags in, then he anchors Cash’s leg. Cash kicks at Swerve but Swerve floats around to CLUB Cash down!

Dynamite returns to single picture as Swerve throws hands and slaps Cash around. Swerve drags Cash over, tags Keith back in, and Gunn Sons are still upset. Cash throws hands and backs Keith down. Keith shoves Cash away but Cash kicks back! Cash rushes in, leaps, but Keith catches him! Dax and Cash reach out but they can’t make it! Keith RAMS Cash into the corner! Keith runs in but Cash dodges and Keith just gets buckles! Swerve tags himself in to stop Cash and bring him around! Cash reaches again and again, but he back drops Swerve away! Hot tag to Dax!

But the Gunn Sons are done playing! They beat up Cash and Dax! Fans boo but The Acclaimed run in to run the Gunns off! But the damage is done, we’re getting the third and decisive battle between The Acclaimed & Swerve In Our Glory! Will Caster & Bowens prove they are THE best tag team in AEW? Or will the titles soon return to the Limitless House?


Backstage interview with Saraya.

Renee is with “her girl,” and they’re both excited to be in AEW together. But then Britt Baker barges in to sarcastically say we’re all excited. But then Saraya stops Britt there, she’s not in the mood. Britt says Saraya’s the one who started this! Renee shouts over them both. This is insane! If they wanna talk about this, do it properly. Britt storms off, but will she and Saraya find a way to have it out?


AEW returns and Renee is on stage.

And she introduces… MJF! Norfolk goes nuts as Maxwell Jacob Friedman walks out. He has them cut his music, and fans chant his name. Renee starts but MJF cuts her off. “Ladies and gentlemen, the devil has arrived in Virginia! And I’ve got one solitary question, Virginia. We got any devil worshippers in the house tonight?” Fans cheer, and MJF asks the “ravishing” Renee, “all the disgusting poors watching at home would love to lay,” what she has for him. Well, tonight, Jon Moxley is putting his title on the line against Penta. Should he retain, then MJF will be facing Moxley for the title at Full Gear. How does MJF feel ahead of a match that monumental?

How does he feel about wrestling Moxley? MJF asks to borrow the mic and Renee hands it over. MJF asks, “You mean, how do I feel wrestling this guy.” And then he mocks Moxley’s strut, and then he mocks how Moxley talks, “ECK! MJF, at Full Gear, I’m gonna mash your bones, man. I’m gonna drink you blood. I’m gonna gargle your piss! Cuz I’m Jon Freakin’ Moxley!” Is that who we’re talking about? Yes, him… Well, Renee, in Virginia, MJF loves y’all. Even with all your shortcomings. But with all due respect, and he means that, “When I think of Jonathon, only one word comes to mind, and that word has got three letters, and it starts with an M. And that word is M-M-M-MID!!”

Renee says you can’t say “with all due respect” and then insult someone. Uh, with all due respect, shut your mouth. But listen… Last week, when MJF said he was gonna earn it, he meant it. Though, maybe he went outta control when he said he’d wrestle a whole match cleanly. Let’s just get that out of the way. He means relatively clean. He’s still MJF, let’s get real. But, there was one thing that got under MJF’s skin, and that was when “that disgusting, flea infested elderly rat, William Regal, decided to tell me that he didn’t use his brass knuckles because he needed to, but that he used them because he wanted to.”

MJF says Regal was alluding to the fact that MJF can’t beat Regal’s boy, Jon Moxley, without his Dynamite Diamond Ring. What do the fans think of that? The fans boo and MJF agrees, that’s BS. But he makes a promise here that for one night and one night only, at Full Gear, for the grandest prize of them all, MJF will NOT use his diamond ring. “Because, Will, I don’t need it. The only thing I’ve ever needed to be a success in my life is a grudge. And trust me, I’m chalked full of ’em!” MJF has taken all his grudges, mashed them down into one chip, and that chip is directly on his shoulder!

Come November 19th in his backyard, the metropolitan area of Newark, New Jersey, MJF ain’t fighting Regal! He ain’t fighting Moxley! He ain’t fighting Penta! MJF is fighting “every single sorry scumbag that ever told me I wasn’t good enough! And I am going to take this heavy chip off my shoulder and shove it down each and every one of their throats when I become your NEW AEW Champion of the World!” Fans fire up for that! MJF says it’s because he is a generational talent. But then Stokely Hathaway cuts him off? Stokely gets it! MJF wants Moxley at 100% at Full Gear, and trust Stokely when he says The Firm won’t lay a hand on that man.

MJF slaps the mic out of Stokely’s hand! MJF borrows Renee’s again to tell Stokely, “Perhaps you’ve gotten a little bit comfortable since you’ve known me for a very long time. So Virginia, we’re gonna cut Stokely some slack, huh?” Fans boo but MJF tells Stokely that “If Jon Moxley gets past Penta in the main event tonight, at Full Gear, I need him 110%, so him and Regal and all his weirdo fanboys have got NO excuses when I beat him in that ring! So you don’t go near him, you don’t lay a hand on him. Hell, you don’t even look at him. Or you’re fired.” Fans like the ultimatum, and Stokely smiles. Stokely leaves and MJF starts where he left off: he super over catchphrase.

Three, two, one, and fans say it with him! “Because MY NAME is Maxwell! Jacob! Friedman! And I’m better than you! And you know it!!” The Salt of the Earth actually wants to do this as close to the right way as he can, will he get it down in New Jersey?


AEW hears from The Kingdom and #WARJOE!

Matt Taven asks, “I just want to know who did we disrespect? Because I never said the name, ‘Warjoe.’ I would never say that name in the first place because it is an awful tag team name, but if you Melvins are throwing out title shots, then Matt Taven is gonna step up to the plate.” A ROH Grand Slam Champion, winning all the belts they had to offer, and you will see a NEW AEW TNT Champion.

But Wardlow says Taven can scream his name as loudly and as confidently as he wants, and he can list his experience and the titles he has won. But when you’re in the ring with Wardlow, none of it matters. Friday on Rampage, two things are inevitable: Taven being the next casualty of the Powerbomb Symphony; and Wardlow wins. Will Matt Taven find he’s just in Wardlow’s World now?


Bryan Danielson VS Sammy Guevara w/ Tay Melo!

The American Dragon said his piece earlier, but so did the Spanish God. The BCC won earlier, but is starting to fall apart. Can Bryan win to keep things going strong? Or will the JAS avenge themselves with a little sports entertainment?

The bell rings and Bryan stares down with Sammy. Then they rush in and Sammy KNEES Bryan! Sammy fires off hands and CHOPS, then he climbs up the corner to rain down fists! Sammy BITES Bryan, then CHOPS him and CLUBS him! Sammy whips corner to corner, runs in and RAMS into Bryan, then ENZIGURIS! Sammy soaks up the heat then jumps and jumps to FLYING CUTTER! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives and seems off his game already! Sammy drags Bryan up to CLUB him more. Fans chant “Sammy Sucks!” but he torture racks. Bryan slips off to GERMAN SUPLEX, but Sammy lands on his feet!

Sammy goes up and over in the corner, then hurdles Bryan, flips and jumps, but Bryan catches the legs to an ANKLE LOCK! Bryan hooks the legs up and fans cheer as he fishhooks Sammy! The ref counts, Bryan lets go to get the arms. Bryan pulls, pulls and has the ROMERO SPECIAL! Sammy endures the floating surfboard, but Bryan lets Sammy down to throw forearm after forearm! Bryan then pushes Sammy down to drop knee after knee! Fans rally, Bryan looms over Sammy, and then he drags Sammy up. Bryan EuroUppers Sammy and Sammy flops against ropes. Bryan says, “You wanna play with me, Sammy?” EuroUpper!

Bryan CHOPS Sammy in the corner! And KICKS! And CHOPS! Sammy turns it around to CHOP and forearm, but Bryan just glares at him. Sammy fires off forearms but Bryan leans into them!

The ref counts, Bryan STOMPS the other arm!

The ref reprimands but Bryan drags Sammy back up. Bryan underhooks to BUTTERFLY SUPLEX into an ARMBAR! Sammy rolls and gets the ROPEBREAK! Bryan lets off to throw down palm strikes! And then fists! The ref checks, those are a bit closed, but Bryan stops at 4. Bryan asks the fans, “Wanna see me kick his head in?” Fans cheer! But Sammy scrambles out to Tay! Bryan runs to WRECK Sammy with a dropkick! And then leaps off the apron, but Sammy KNEES Bryan first!! Bryan staggers, Sammy goes up the apron, ASAI MOONSAULT! Sammy almost reaches the lights as he takes down Bryan!

AEW goes picture in picture as Tay applauds her husband and gives him a kiss. Sammy slides into the ring, and Tay gest a cheap shot on Bryan! Tay gets away with it, but the ref is suspicious of something happening. Fans tell the ref to get rid of Tay but the ref lets Tay stay for now. Bryan drags himself up and gets in the ring, but Sammy is on him with a rain of forearms and fists! The ref counts, Sammy lets off to facelock. Sammy snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Sammy is annoyed but he drags Bryan up. Sammy puts Bryan on the ropes to CHOKE! The ref counts and Sammy lets off, and Tay CHOKES Bryan now!

Tay gets away with things again, Sammy digs his knee into Bryan and the ref counts. Sammy lets off at 4 and Bryan crawls to a corner. Sammy storms up to whip Bryan corner to corner. Sammy runs in, and he DROPKICKS Bryan, a la Bryan! Sammy soaks up the heat, then he goes corner to corner again, to DROPKICK! Bryan flounders and Sammy soaks up more heat. Sammy stands on Bryan for the cocky cover a la Jericho, but Bryan pushes him off before a count even starts. Dynamite returns to single picture and Sammy drags Bryan up. Sammy CLUBS Bryan, CLUBS him again, then soaks up more heat.

Fans rally for Bryan as Sammy tells the “stupid dragon” he hates him. Sammy KICKS Bryan a la Bryan, then KICKS and KICKS and KICKS! Fans chant “NO! NO! NO!” and Bryan starts snarling! Sammy powers up, but Bryan blocks the buzzsaw! To SLAP Sammy! Sammy falls over and flounders to a corner, but Bryan stands him up to CHOP! And KICK! And CHOP! And KICK! CHOP! KICK! KICK! KICK! KICK! Bryan whips, Sammy reverses but Bryan goes up and over and keeps moving to duck ‘n’ dodge and LEAPING LARIAT! Fans are fired up as Bryan storms up on Sammy.

Bryan leaps for a MISSILE DROPKICK! And then a kip up! Fans fire up with Bryan more, and he gives Sammy a KICK! And a KICK! “YES! YES! YES!” Sammy ducks the Buzzsaw, shoves Bryan to ropes, and then hits a SPANISH FLY! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives and Tay shouts to keep on him! Sammy drags Bryan to a drop zone and he goes up top! But Bryan trips Sammy up! Bryan climbs up behind Sammy and goes to the very top, for a SUPER BACK SUPLEX, but Sammy lands on his feet?!

Sammy hits a SPINEBUSTER, and he goes right up! MOONSAULT, but Sammy lands on his feet as Bryan moves!

Tay freaks out but fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” And then the roll into the TRIANGLE HOLD!! Sammy flails, Bryan throws down elbows, and Sammy is OUT!! Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by referee stoppage

The American Dragon takes out all those frustrations, but he might even have some to spare! Who will Bryan look to take all of that out on next?


Backstage interview with Rey Fenix & Alex Abrahantes.

Renee is with the Immortal Firebird and the Death Triangle’s hype man to ask them about Penta’s title match tonight. How do they see it going? Fenix says Penta will become the NEW AEW Double Champion! Alex agrees, Penta will beat Moxley for THE AEW World Championship. Sorry, though, Renee. And Fenix says Penta, or any member of Death Triangle, could be a Double Champion. Even Fenix! Alex agrees here, too, and says Fenix should go after the All-Atlantic Championship! But then Christian Cage & Luchasaurus barge in. Is that what they think?

Captain Charisma says that maybe they didn’t hear, but last week, Christian proclaimed HIS Right Hand of Destruction will go after every single person with a title in AEW. “Luchasaurus has been walking through the opposition left and right. Including Jungle Boy. Who pinned you,” Fenix. So if anyone deserves a shot at Orange Cassidy’s All-Atlantic title, it’s Luchasaurus. Do they understand? But then Cassidy walks in and says, “Y’all talking about me? You two talking about this? Well, next week, let’s do this.” What? Another Triple Threat for the Freshly Squeezed Champion? As chill as he is, is he crazy? Or just that confident?


Riho VS Jamie Hayter w/ Britt Baker & Rebel!

Backstage interview with Eddie Kingston.

Renee is with the Mad King, and he says, “What up, sis?” Renee notes last Friday on Rampage, it was an intervention of sorts for Eddie Kingston. How is he? How’s he been? Eddie chuckles and says he’s great! He’s wonderful! That thing was fun, look at his smile. It’s great, really. But anyway, let’s talk about Moxley and his match tonight. Let’s stop worrying about Eddie, okay? Well, okay. Moxley will be defending his title against Penta, how does Eddie feel about that? Eddie says in all honesty, this will be a hard one for Moxley. Penta’s money, he’s Eddie’s friend, but Moxley will take this. And that’s it. Everyone else, leave Eddie alone.


BIG matches set for Rampage!

As the war rages on, the BCC’s Claudio & Yuta now take on Daddy Magic & Cool Hand Ange! Will the Swiss Superman & Decoder keep things rolling against Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker? Plus, Madison Rayne and Tay Melo will go 1v1 after their tag team encounter. Will the Queen Bee sting the Brazilian Goddess? And the AEW TNT Championship match is official, Matt Taven gets his shot at the War Dog! Will The Kingdom’s first move in AEW be to get some gold? Or just to get devastated by powerbombs?


Darby Allin speaks.

“As you can see, Sting hasn’t been here in quite some time. I’m gonna tell you a little story why. About a month ago, I went up to Sting and I told him, ‘Hey, I’m not happy. I’m not happy with where I’m going, I’m not happy with who I am, I just want to crawl into a hole and disappear from the world.’ And he said, ‘You can’t do that.’ And I said, ‘Why? Why can’t I do that?’ And he told me, ‘Because you’re Darby Allin. A former TNT Champion, the man that convinced to come out of retirement.’ And I said, ‘If that’s the case, then let me prove myself by myself.’

“And fast forward to last week, Jay Lethal comes up to me and says, ‘I have an old friend that knows your biggest weakness.’ Well, Jay, you can told your old friend I already know my biggest weakness, and my biggest weakness is myself. It’s been since day one I was born, I’ve been dancing on thin ice, and I have no safety net, I have no comfort zone. Tell your old friend to come to AEW Dynamite next week, and tell me to my face what my biggest weakness is.”

Jay Lethal and friends respond!

Lethal says, “Well, Darby, it seems you need to worry a little less about our friend, and a little more about how we have a match next week. And if you thought last week, that beating we gave you was something, you ain’t seen nothing yet, Darby! You are in for a rude awakening!” Sonjay Dutt asks if this is what Darby really wants. Does Darby wanna piss Sonjay off? Well if that’s what he wants, be careful what you wish for, because next week, Darby sure as hell is going to get it. The rematch is on, but just who is that old friend who knows Darby’s weakness?


AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley VS Penta El Zero Miedo w/ Alex Abrahantes!

The Maniac loves to fight, and between his match with Hangman Page going sideways and MJF not taking him on last week, he’s itching to fight someone with no fear of what’s going to happen. And so who better to answer the call then this man! Will Pentagon, one third of Death Triangle, have two titles after tonight? Or will having no fear have no effect on the wild thing?

The introductions are made, “Pretty Platinum” is raised, and we see who is meeting MJF in New Jersey!

The bell rings, fans are fired up already, and Penta stares down with Moxley. Fans duel, “CERO! MIEDO!” “Let’s Go, Moxley!” Penta and Moxley approach, talk some smack, and then Penta gives a shove. Moxley shoves back, and he eggs Penta on. They circle, tie up, and Moxley backs Penta down. But Penta backs Moxley into a corner, lets off as the ref calls the break, but then Moxley avoids a chop to CHOP back! Penta CHOPS, Moxley CHOPS, they CHOP and CHOP and CHOP and CHOP! Fans fire up and Moxley throws a forearm! Penta responds with a forearm, they throw forearms back and forth now, then turn this into a brawl!

Moxley KICKS a leg, runs, but into a half nelson! Moxley fights out, wrenches, but Penta blocks the underhooks! Penta wrenches, MULE KICKS, then reels Moxley in! “CERO! MIEDO!” But Moxley back drops! Penta sunset flips, Moxley rolls through but Penta ducks the Regal Knee to roll Moxley up, TWO! Moxley hurries but Penta ducks the lariat, and then has Moxley hold on. Penta wags his finger and says, “Listen! CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Moxley! Moxley tells Penta to listen. “F YOU!” And he flips Penta off! Fans fire up and Penta is annoyed. But Moxley blocks his Superkick and spins Penta around.

Penta ducks the lariat to SUPERKICK on the return! Moxley flops out of the ring, Penta builds speed and FLIES! Direct hit and fans fire up! Penta swaggers around and AEW goes picture in picture.

Penta has the fans chanting along with the Cero Miedo, then he goes back to fetch Moxley. Moxley sit sup, Penta KICKS him in the leg! Moxley hobbles, Penta follows after and he CHOPS Moxley against railing! And CHOPS him again! Penta swaggers, Moxley is stinging, but then Penta moves the steel steps around. Moxley storms over as Penta refreshes the count. Moxley CHOPS Penta as he slides back out! Moxley CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS and then brings Penta around, but Penta blocks the suplex! Penta throws body shots to snap suplex! Fans fire up, Penta borrows a fan’s hat, and then he swaggers up to Moxley to KICK his leg!

Moxley gets in the ring but Penta drags him back out! Penta smacks Moxley off the steel steps! And again! And again! Penta lets off to refresh the count again, and then he brings Moxley around to put him against a corner. Penta CHOPS Moxley against the post! Moxley is stinging, and Penta takes off his glove. Perfect throw and catch with Alex, and then Penta swings, but Moxley moves! Penta’s hand hits steel post! And then Moxley grabs that hand to bend the fingers! Moxley whips Penta into railing! And then puts him in the ring! Moxley slides in at 7 of 10, drags Penta up, and CHOPS him in the corner.

Moxley whips corner to corner, Penta goes up and over and hits a BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO! Penta shakes his head, shakes out his bad hand, and fans clap along. Dynamite returns to single picture as fans chant, “CERO! MIEDO!” Clap, clap, clap-clap-clap. Penta stalks Moxley to the ropes, keeps him in place, and then KICKS him in the side! Moxley sputters and Penta eggs him on. Moxley goes to a corner, Penta stands him up and throws forearms. Penta whips corner to corner, runs in, but into a BOOT! Penta staggers, runs back in, but Moxley OVERHEAD Belly2Belly suplexes Penta into buckles!

Both men are down and fans rally up. A standing count begins, Penta drags himself up the corner but Moxley runs in to clothesline! And clothesline, and clothesline, and clothesline! Moxley climbs up to rain down fists, and fans count to TEN! Moxley BITES the mask! Moxley runs, into a SUPERKICK! Penta runs, into a BOOT! Moxley runs, Penta dodges and comes back to SLINGBLADE! Cover, TWO! Fans rally, both men stand, and Penta reels Moxley in, “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tucks the arms, but Moxley fights free to CUTTER! Moxley drags Penta up, reels him in, PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!! But into a CROSSFACE!

Penta endures as Moxley pulls Penta’s face back! Penta moves, Moxley uses that for HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! And then the BULLY CHOKE!

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

The Maniac snatches the win away at the last moment, but who is in the ring now?! W. Morrissey!? And he BOOTS Moxley down! Then the rest of The Firm, from Lee Moriarty to Ethan Page to the Gunn Sons, swarm the ring to beat up Moxley! They’re going against MJF’s orders as they stomp away on Moxley! They drag Moxley up and feed him to a LARIAT from Colten Gunn! Fans boo but Moriarty goes up top. Morrissey sets Moxley up for Moriarty’s FLYING DOUBLE STOMPS! Stokely storms his way out to the ring and he’s all fired up! Morrissey rains down fists and then rips off his shirt. Fans boo as Stokely gest on the corner?

Security rushes out, but The Firm beat them down now! The Firm throws them all out, and then in the back, it seems The Firm locked the door to the Blackpool Combat Club’s locker room! No one can get in or out, meaning Moxley is all alone against Stokely’s thugs! The mugging of Moxley continues, and Austin gets a chair! Colten sits Moxley up but Moxley BOOTS Austin! Moxley DECKS Colten, DECKS Moriarty, but Ethan BOOTS Moxley back down! Colten rains down forearms, but here comes MJF! MJF looks torn! He did tell The Firm not to do this, but he doesn’t really care about Moxley. Fans boo as MJF goes back to the tunnel.

But then MJF comes running back out! MJF slides in to shove everyone away from Moxley! He tells them that they’re FIRED! The Firm is no longer HIS faction! But MJF says Moxley needs to have sense. But then Ethan BOOTS MJF!! Well, since they’re not his faction anymore, they don’t have to listen to him! They mug MJF now! Fans boo but now there’s no one to save MJF because these were his guys! Morrissey drags MJF up, feeds him to Ethan, and Ethan grins as he blows a kiss to Norfolk. EGO’S EDGE for MJF! And then Morrissey TOSSES MJF out of the ring! But that’s not all, as The Firm follows MJF out.

MJF starts fighting back, but that’s too many to fight off! The timekeeper’s table is cleared off, and Morrissey drags MJF up. Morrissey choke grips, MJF fights but gets mugged again. Morrissey then hauls MJF up with a choke grip, to CHOKE SLAM MJF through the table!! The Firm went rogue and now they’re doing whatever they want! Will anything stop them from taking over AEW? And what is the state of the world title match after both champion and challenger have been demolished?

My Thoughts:

Another great Dynamite, and fortunately, more wrestling than talking. Getting a title match just because was cool, and Moxley and Penta put on an amazing one. MJF had a great promo beforehand, and I am really liking that for all his Heel attitude, he is basically a Face now because fans love him and he wants to do things on his own. The Firm forcing his hand was great, and I feel like The Firm going after MJF was happening at some point anyway with Stokely getting power hungry. Moxley and MJF both get beat down so that does muddy some of the math, but there is still some time before the PPV. I’m wondering if MJF has a match against one of the Firm members as a tune-up. I’m pretty sure Moxley will, and that’ll be great stuff.

Good promos from Eddie Kingston and Rey Fenix to get their opinions on that main event. I also like that there was a lot of sarcasm from Eddie because of that intervention on Rampage. Eddie’s story being about how close he is to snapping is great, it makes the most out of working in his past with other companies. And then Fenix being confronted by Christian and Luchasaurus was good, as was Cassidy joining in. Cassidy is quickly becoming the fightingest All-Atlantic Champion by having two Triple Threat defenses in a row as his first two defenses. He’s starting strong, winning strong, and that might make it all the bigger when someone takes that title off him.

Great match out of Riho VS Hayter, but I figured Hayter would win to push her up the rankings towards the women’s title. Toni Storm showing up was of course a further sign of that, and Storm VS Hayter is going to be awesome stuff. Saraya and Britt also had a nice little encounter backstage, they’re building ever closer to that match for Saraya’s return to the ring. I’m thinking Storm and Saraya each win their matches against Hayter and Britt, but if either of them is losing, it might be Saraya because Britt will have Rebel to help her cheat. And from I’ve heard, it sounds like Storm wants to get the “interim” out of the way the same way Moxley did, maybe Storm is just named THE Women’s World Champion if Thunder Rosa isn’t back after Full Gear.

We got an awesome contender’s match from FTR VS Swerve In Our Glory, and I like all the moving parts of this. The Acclaimed were watching from a distance so as not to be a factor, other than the fans paying them some attention, while The Gunn Sons were ringside because they were going to be a factor. This of course sets up Gunns VS FTR for the ROH World Tag Team Championships while we’re getting Acclaimed VS Swerve & Keith Round 3. With how Swerve is going further and further Heel, I bet he and Keith lose and then Swerve turns on Keith and we get that feud. Then in Gunns VS FTR, there’s half a chance Gunns cheat to win and get The Firm their first belts.

Good promo from Taven and Wardlow to set up their match, but I would think Wardlow wins. His rise back up can’t be stopped just because The Kingdom shows up. We also got good promos from Darby and Lethal’s group to hype up their rematch. I would love if Lethal’s “old friend” who knows Darby’s weakness is Sting! Lethal and Sting were in Impact together, Sting knows Darby pretty well now, and Sting could spin it by saying if Darby wants to prove himself, then he needs to be able to overcome someone with everything in his favor. That in itself can help prove to Darby and to AEW that Darby is ready for the world title.

Great stuff from BCC and JAS. Great opening match from Claudio & Yuta VS Jericho & Garcia. That win is big, because I would love for Full Gear or even ROH Final Battle in December to have Claudio VS Jericho and Yuta VS Garcia, last chances for BCC to get those ROH titles back. Jericho calling out ALL of ROH is great, I would love to see ROH Women’s Champion, Mercedes Martinez, show up to whoop Anna and/or Tay in a title match. And we can see The Briscoes beat up on Menard & Parker, and we can use that promo to give us Jericho VS Samoa Joe at some point. Bryan VS Sammy was also great, and of course Bryan won. The BCC getting heated with each other is an intriguing twist, I can’t wait to see which way this goes.

And while not played up much in the broadcast, I really do like that little promo from The Elite. They did good with that golden Thanos snap type effect, and are of course pointing out that they are the reason for everything that has happened with this company. It is also a sign that they’re on their way back from the suspension, and maybe they’ll actually finally discuss that on camera because otherwise, casual viewers who still don’t know what happened after All Out won’t understand what’s going on. And with that, they can also call out Death Triangle over those Trios Championships, maybe Full Gear gives us Elite VS Death Triangle in a show stealer.

My Score: 8.8/10

It’s the Double or Nothing Buy-In!

Join Renee Paquette, Paul “Big Show” Wight, Stokely Hathaway and Kazeem Famuyide in discussing, analyzing and predicting everything tonight on this high stakes night for AEW! Oh, and RJ City is backstage on the red carpet.


Jim Ross interviews Don Callis.

Watch the full version here. Good ol’ JR asked Don, “How do you want this whole saga to conclude?” Don says he has done the hardest thing that a parent or family member could do. It was a cancer eating away with him, and what do you do with a cancer? You cut it out. And Don wants Kenny Omega to know, he hasn’t even started cutting yet. What more can Don possibly do to Kenny Omega after betraying him?


RJ City interviews Arn Anderson.

RJ is intimidated by The Enforcer, and he asks that in tonight’s TNT Championship match, Wardlow’s title will be hanging from the rafters because he got goaded into a ladder match. It feels like they’re playing into Christian Cage’s hands, what is the plan to win? Arn asks, “What makes you think anybody got goaded into their hands?” Arn reminds us that he and Wardlow are playing chess to Christian’s checkers, and they were the ones goading Christian into a match. Does RJ know how heavy a 10 foot ladder is? Arn sure doesn’t see Christian carrying one around much. But he does see Wardlow having yet to unleash what we’re about to see tonight, “in a town that’s up all night long.”

This isn’t them playing around, they’re getting down to business. And Wardlow’s going off tonight. RJ asks Arn if he’s packing heat tonight. Arn chuckles. Ask your mama. “My new step-father, Arn Anderson. Back to you, Renee.” Will the Maestro of Mayhem conduct the most memorable Powerbomb Symphony of all time?

Renee Paquette is on stage.

She welcomes us to the opening ceremonies for the 2023 Owen Hart Cup, and welcomes out Dr. Martha Hart. Martha makes her entrance and has a mic of her own. Renee says it is always so great to have Marth, and it was this time last year that we had the tournament finals. This year, it all kicks off on Forbidden Door weekend. Yes, and Martha wants to say she is so happy to be back in beautiful Las Vegas. She is so happy to be back here with the AEW Family, and her own Owen Hart Foundation and her own family. She welcomes us all to the opening ceremonies of this year’s tournament to celebrate one of the most memorable wrestlers of all-time in Owen Hart.

Fans chant “OWEN! OWEN!” and Martha says that while last year, we were to dress up in bling and such, but the tournament is turning on its head and getting “gangster” this year. Maybe we should have our fedoras. Tony Khan walks out in such a fedora, with the Owen Hart Foundation logo on it. And Martha says this is not wrapping here but kicking off in Canada! And this will round up in Calgary at “the greatest outdoor show on earth,” the Calgary Stampede, July 15th! Make sure to bring your cowboy hats, pardners! Who will be in on this great tribute tournament to become the 2023 King and Queen of Hart?


Get ready to roll the dice.

“As the desert sun sets, the stakes rise. And on this Vegas night, fate will favor the bold, the risk takers. Only those willing to pay a high price survive this town. And the odds on the future? One in four. Tonight, from T-Mobile Arena, this is AEW Double or Nothing.”

Jericho has been hypocritical, disrespectful and conniving, but has it all finally come back to haunt him in the worst way possible?

Fans fire up, Cole goes up the corner again, aims, PANAMA- NO, Jericho trips Cole! Cole fights it but Jericho still puts him in the WALLS OF JERICHO!!

AEW TNT Championship Ladder Match: Wardlow VS Christian Cage w/ Luchasaurus!

The Maestro of Mayhem made it through the Monstar, but now he faces a monster. No, not the Right Hand of Destruction, but Captain Charisma, who is really more like the Chief of Cheap Shots. Christian insulted Wardlow’s deceased father and what supposed little impact he had on anyone’s life, and that is a step too far. Will Wardlow have a major impact on Christian’s life tonight? Or will Captain Charisma remind us that he is the Lord of Ladders?

Surprisingly, Christian has Luchasaurus leave ringside! Is Christian really going to do this 1v1? Does he really think he can survive doing this 1v1? The introductions are made, the belt is already high above, and we see who climbs over the other to bring it down!

Wardlow catches his breath, brings the ladder up, then stomps Christian.

Wardlow climbs, but slowly, only for Christian to anchor his foot! Wardlow climbs back down to drag Christian up. Christian grabs the ladder to escape the bomb! Fans freak out, but Wardlow quickly yanks Christian back down! POWERSLAM! Fans fire up again and Wardlow decides to put the ladder down. Wardlow drags Christian up, trophy lifts him, and he walks around in a circle, SUPER AIRPLANE SPIN, to then DROP Christian on the ladder!!

AEW Women’s World Championship: Jamie Hayter VS Toni Storm!

A tale as old as time in pro-wrestling: two best friends are torn apart by success, ambition, jealousy and pride. The two were at odds even before Hayter defeated Storm to become champion, and things have only escalated from there. Will Hayter have to hit Storm even harder to end this? Or will being an Outcast be exactly what Storm needs to strike Hayter down?

Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS La Faccion Ingobernable!

Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass won the Tres de Mayo Trios Battle Royal over three weeks ago and are still building momentum in the Trios Division. But will they be able to bring down Rush, Dralistico & Preston Vance? Or will LFI make Sin City tranquilo?

But of course, Platinum Max has a diss track! “Acclaimed in the house, we the nicest ever. This is not a game, this is not Fight Forever. Rush, you’re losing your cred. How you gonna fight us with all your pubes on your head? Wait, is this guy from Tijuana, bro? He looks like the dominatrix at the donkey show! We’ll make your crew say adios. Acclaimed here to win this match mas rapido!” Bowens gets the mic to say, “LAAAAS VEGAAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS~!” And he does~! But will this be muy bien for The Acclaimed? Or muy malo?

The trios sort out and fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” Bowens starts against Dralistico and the two circle. Dralistico copies the conducting of the choir, and even offers the scissor finger.

Dralistico CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Bowens CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Bowens whips, Dralistico goes up and over and then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA! Bowens comes back with a mule kick, front kick, and KOTARO KRUSHER! Fans fire up because “EVERYONE Loves The Acclaimed!”

But Dralistico gets away and tags in Perro Peligroso. Bowens tags in Caster, and The Dangerous Dog circles with Platinum Max. They tie up, Vance headlocks, and Caster powers up and out. Vance runs Caster over, mocks the scissors, then runs. Caster drops, hurdles, then arm-drags! Caster has Vance’s arm and thrusts with it! Then Caster clamps the armlock, but Vance fights up to ROCK him with a forearm! Vance whips, Caster ducks ‘n’ dodges, and leaps, but into Vance’s arms!

The LFI mug Caster more, then Rush CHOPS him in a corner. Dralistico CHOPS Caster, and then Vance stands Caster back up to CHOP him, too! LFI double whip Caster corner to corner, Dralistico runs in to SPLASH, and then Vance runs in to clothesline! Rush powers up, runs, and jumps just to BOOT Caster! Rush rolls back to tranquilo while the rest of LFI raise the fists. Fans rally for The Acclaimed while Vance bumps Caster off buckles. Vance then runs to BOOT Bowens! Rush drags Caster out, throws body shots, and then he and Dralistico put Caster back in for Vance. Vance then sends Caster back out to them, to send into railing!

A fast ‘n’ furious battle, and Daddy Ass and his boys make it through! Bowens gets the mic to say, “How we doin’ tonight, Vegas?” Fans cheer, they’re doing great! “The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass, we feel the exact same way, because we’ve been running through this Trios Division all month long! And seeing as though we are in Vegas, I think we should do some gambling. What do you say?” Bowens says that if Vegas is gonna gamble, maybe Sunday night, remember this: The House always wins, but never bet on Black! Because EVERYONE LOVES THE ACCLAIMED! Bowens, Caster & Billy call out Malakai, Brody & Buddy, will the scissors cut down the House of Black?


Six Man Tag: Ethan Page & The Gunns VS ???

From one trios match to another, All Ego & The Ass Boys are taking on The Hardy Party at Double or Nothing, with Ethan’s contract on the line! Will Ethan, Austin & Colten be rolling into Sunday to exact revenge on Matt & Jeff?

The trios sort out, Austin starts against ??? and the two circle. Ethan & Colten distract ???, and Austin CLOBBERS him! Austin swaggers, then tags in Colten. Colten drags ??? up, puts him in the corner and stomps away on him! The ref counts, Colten lets off to tell her to shut up! Tag to Austin, Austin stomps a mudhole now, but the ref counts again. Austin lets off and shouts, then tags Colten back in. The Gunns whip, body shot, knee lift, and then LARIAT! Fans boo but the Gunns soak it up. Colten says if Ethan wants some, here he goes.

Winners: Ethan Page & The Gunns, by pinfall

Ethan isn’t done, either, he wants a mic! A mic is given, and Ethan says he wants to talk to the “bozos” in Vegas. “Shut up, you basic ass civilians.” Ethan doesn’t care if anyone here was watching, he wants The Hardy Boyz to have been watching. Because if so, they just saw what a REAL three man crew, a REAL trio, can do! A REAL team! And on Sunday, guess we won’t find out what the Hardy Party can do because these three took out Kassidy! FOR GOOD! So it is clearly going to be 3v2 now. But wait, here come the Hardy Boys! Fans fire up as Matt & Jeff are on stage, and Jeff has a mic of his own!

Jeff says, “The Ass Boys are looking good out here on Rampage with a boost of ego. This Sunday, the Egos will be DELETED, compliments of us.” Matt tells Ethan that his contract and his ass will belong to Matt now! If they have to fight 3v2, they’re not afraid to. Because to them, fear is only a four letter word. Wait, Kassidy is here with a neck brace? Ethan mocks them to come on down, and Austin mocks the moaning and squealing. Kassidy says unfortunately, the doctor did not clear him to compete. However… He found a replacement. It’s HOOK!! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil did help Hardy Party in the Firm Deletion, so he has returned to help them again!

Fans fire up as Hook follows the Hardy Boys to the ring, and that sends Ethan & The Gunns running! Will the remnants of The Firm be torn down once and for all now that Kassidy has #SentHook?


Backstage interview with Naturally Limitless.

Lexi Nair is with Keith Lee & Dustin Rhodes, and we all know things have been heating up between them and the now Mogul Embassy. It has just been announced that Swerve Strickland and Brian Cage are both in the Blackjack Battle Royal, as are they. What does that mean for them? Imagine that, huh? Swerve and Cage in a battle royal. So after Keith & Dustin eliminate them, because this is all for the International Championship, then Keith & Dustin can just eliminate everyone else and then make a decision on who wins it all. Dustin is confident he and Keith can come to an agreement.

But Swerve and Cage, you know it’s heated. You know it’s coming. Be ready. Keith adds that if the Embassy is in this, then he can’t wait! Keith heads out, and Dustin hopes Swerve saw that. Will nothing stop Keith & Dustin settling things with Swerve’s House this Sunday?


Britt Baker & Hikaru Shida VS Nyla Rose & Marina Shafir!

While The Doctor & The Full Metal Warrior couldn’t put away the Outcasts, they are sticking together in this ongoing battle of AEW Homegrowns and everyone else. Will these former AEW Women’s World Champions prove they are still a formidable team? Or will the Vicious Vixens be a major problem for them?

The teams sort out, Shida starts against Nyla as no strangers to each other. They circle, and then Nyla kicks low and CLUBS Shida on the back! Nyla bumps Shida off buckles, then tags in Marina. The Vixens double whip, but Shida ducks the double ax handles to shove Marina into Nyla, and then shove them both into a corner! Shida runs corner to corner to KNEE them both down! Shida then snap suplexes Marina onto Nyla! Fans fire up with Shida and she points to Britt. Fans fire up as Shida tags in Britt! Britt fires off on Marina, but Marina shoves her back. Britt dodges, comes back, SLINGBLADE! Cover, TWO!

Britt keeps on Marina with hammering elbows, then she wraps on a chinlock. Britt brings Marina up but Marina blocks the suplex. Britt powers up and still suplexes Marina up and over! Cover, TWO! Britt brings Marin up, ROCKS her, and then whips her to ropes. Marina reverses to CHOP and BOOT Britt down! Marina scowls, storms up on Britt, and tags in Nyla. The Vixens mug Britt in the corner, and Nyla CHOKES Britt on the ropes! Nyla laughs right into the corner camera before she lets go at 4. Fans boo as Nyla stands on Britt and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Nyla lets off as the ref counts, and then Nyla drags Britt up. Nyla scoops Britt to SLAM her down, then she soaks up the heat. Nyla stomps Britt, drags her up, and scoops to SLAM her again! Nyla mocks the “D! M! D!” and then stalks Britt to scoop her again. Britt slips off, but Nyla choke grips her for a CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO! Marina and Shida shout at each other, and Nyla brings Britt up to CLUB her on the back. Nyla bumps Britt off buckles, tags Marina, and Marina fires off body shots! Marina kicks Britt’s legs out, then tags Nyla back in. The Vixens drag Britt up to whip her hard into the corner!

Marina whips Nyla in to SPLASH! And then Nyla feeds Britt to Marina’s BOOT! Marina taunts Shida, clamps onto Britt with an armlock, and she grinds Britt down. Britt endures, reaches out, throws slapping hands on Marina, but then Marina whips Britt back into the corner! Nyla tags back in, the Vixens mug Britt more, and Nyla RAMS Britt in the corner! And again! And again! Nyla sits Britt down, digs her boot in, and mockingly counts along with the ref before letting off at 4. Nyla snapmares, clamps claws onto Britt’s shoulders, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and the Vixens double whip Britt into their corner again! Marina sends Nyla in but Britt avoids the splash! Marina hurries after Britt, misses, and she stubs a toe on the ropes! Gotta be careful going barefoot! Hot tag to Shida! Shida dodges Marina, ENZIGURIS her down, then rolls to SHOTEI Nyla! Marina throws a forearm, but Shida throws a flurry in return! Fans fire up with Shida as she just hammers away on Marina! Marina staggers around, swings, but Shida DECKS her! Shida puts Marina in a corner, climbs up, and Shida rains down more fists! The fans count along and Shida gets all the way to TEN!

They went after her backstage! Shida & Britt hurry to the back but the damage has been done! Will Hayter be able to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship after this?


Mark Henry welcomes us back to Rampage.

“Tonight, ahead of the Blackjack Battle Royal, Lee Moriarty & Big Bill take on Best Friends. Let’s see which team comes out on top. Well, it looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!” Will Trent Beretta & Chuck Taylor have the hot hand going into the International Championship match? Or will #TAIGASTYLE and the human skyscraper make bust them already?

Best Friends VS Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey!

As Best Friends make their entrance, we see their best amigos, Bandido, Komander and even The Lucha Brothers all watching from the front row. They’re all going to be in the battle royal, too, and well, look at that. It would seem The Superbad Squad and the Varsity Athletes had the same idea. They’re all together in one section watching this in person, too.

Anyway, the teams sort out and Moriarty starts against Chuck. They circle, Chuck does some drop steps, and then the two tie up. Chuck waistlocks, wrenches an arm, then wristlocks. Moriarty works on the escape, but Chuck cranks the wrist. Moriarty stomps a leg, rolls and kips up to then arm-drag free. Chuck backs off and Moriarty does his dance. Fans boo but Bill cheers. Trent tags in and he circles with Moriarty. They tie up, Moriarty gets around to a waistlock but Trent switches. Moriarty switches back, Trent switches again, but Moriarty elbows free and hits a headlock takeover.

Trent headscissors, Moriarty kips free and hits another headlock takeover. Trent headscissors again, Moriarty kips free again, and fans cheer the standoff. Moriarty does his dance and fans boo again. Moriarty claps at Trent, but Trent offers a handshake. Moriarty accepts, but he sees the cheap shot coming! Trent laughs it off, but Moriarty rakes the eyes! Moriarty CHOPS Trent to ropes, whips him, but Trent reverses. Chuck hits Moriarty, but Moriarty DECKS him! But then Trent CLOBBERS Moriarty! Fans fire up with Trent and he brings Moriarty up. Trent CHOPS Moriarty down, then tags Chuck.

Best Friends double whip Moriarty to a corner, then Trent sends Chuck in to clothesline! Trent runs in to ELBOW! Trent brings Moriarty out, Best Friends double suplex! They both flex on Morrissey, then SLAM Moriarty down! Fans cheer but Big Bill runs in! He breaks the double clothesline to DOUBLE LARIAT the Best Friends! Bill clotheslines Chuck out, then he whips Trent corner to corner hard! Trent tumbles up and out and Bill paces. Best Friends are down while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Bill goes out to stomp Trent around, then stalks Trent. Bill rains down fists on Trent, but Chuck is after Moriarty! Chuck whips but Moriarty reverses to send Chuck into railing! Bill drags Trent up, ROCKS him, and Moriarty puts Chuck in the ring. Moriarty drags Chuck up, UPPERCUTS him, and then CHOKES him on the ropes! The ref counts, Moriarty lets off, and he distracts the ref so Bill can BOOT Chuck down! Moriarty covers, TWO! Moriarty drags Chuck up, the Varsity Athletes and Superbad Squad aren’t impressed with any of this, but Bill tags in. Bill throws body shots, the Lucha Brothers cheer Chuck on.

Bill digs his boot in, but steps off as the ref counts, and Moriarty CHOKES Chuck now! Trent protests but Moriarty scurries away. Bill soaks up the heat from Vegas, then he DECKS Chuck! Bill drags Chuck up, ROCKS him again, then tags in Moriarty. They mug Chuck, stomp away on him, and the ref counts. Moriarty lets off and roars, then goes back to Chuck. Moriarty drags Chuck up to wrench an arm into an ELBOW BREAKER! Moriarty snapmares Chuck, wraps him up, but Chuck fights the straitjacket. Moriarty turns Chuck over and hammerlocks an arm, to then SNAP LOCK it!

Chuck endures, even as Moriarty bridges over! Moriarty then goes back around to SNAP LOCK the arm again! Chuck endures, Moriarty bridges again, and then SNAP LOCKS a third time! Chuck manages to sit up, he throws some elbows, and he gets free! Only for Moriarty to DECK Trent with a cheap shot! Moriarty CLUBS Chuck, brings him around and tosses him out! The ref is distracted with Moriarty and Bill goes over to run at Chuck. But Chuck dodges, and the big boot from Big Bill gets stuck on the railing! That’s not good for Little Willie! Rampage returns to single picture and Moriarty rushes out! Chuck dodges and slides in, to hot tag Trent!

Fans fire up as Trent gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX Moriarty! And then GERMAN SUPLEX again! And HALF ‘N’ HALF SUPLEX! Fans fire up while Moriarty flops out of the ring. Trent builds speed to DIVE, but into Big Bill’s  big hands! APRON CHOKE SLAM!! The Lucha Amigos all wince from that and Trent flops to the floor. Bill drags Trent up, puts him in the ring, and then he tags in. Bill runs in at Trent, but Trent dodges the splash! Bill hits buckles and maybe even post! Trent half nelsons but Bill elbows free, only to get a SEXY CHUCKIE KNEE! Trent then reels Bill back in, SOLE FOOD HALF ‘N’ HALF!!

Fans fire up with Best Friends, and Best Friends HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! Trent then drags Bill up while Chuck climbs the corner. But Moriarty CLUBS Chuck down off the corner! Bill turns Alabama Lift into Canadian Rack, but Trent slips free! Trent runs, but into the BIG BOSS MAN SLAM!! Fans fire up from that feat of strength, and Bill tags Moriarty. They haul Trent up, Bill full nelsons and Moriarty gets the legs, NARAKU!! Cover off the full nelson swinging bomb, but Chuck breaks it!! Fans fire up as Best Friends survive! Moriarty drags Chuck up to TOSS him! Tag to Bill and they go back to Trent.

Moriarty wants Bill to go to the corner and Bill climbs up. Moriarty brings Trent up, but Chuck anchors Bill! Trent sends Moriarty into Little Willie! Moriarty flops out of the ring, and Best Friends fire off hands on Bill! They adjust Bill’s position up there, then climb up after him! DOUBLE SUPERPLEX!! Trent crawls to the cover, TWO!!! Bill survives and the Varsity Athletes are amused. The Lucha Amigos rally for Trent & Chuck as Chuck reels Bill in. But Moriarty slides in to claw Chuck’s eyes! The ref reprimands but Trent whips Moriarty. Moriarty reverses to send Trent out and then BOOT him down!

But Chuck kicks Moriarty and reels him in! AWFUL WAFFLE!! But Bill BOOTS Chuck!! Bill choke grips, and SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAMS him!! Cover, Bill & Moriarty win!

Winners: Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Moriarty & Morrissey stand tall, but this was in tag team action. The battle royal is every man for himself, will it come down to these two at the end? Wait, they go up to the Lucha Amigos to talk some trash, and Bandido gives thumbs down right to their faces. Bill shoves Bandido, so Bandido throws a forearm! Moriarty goes after Bandido, the Lucha Brothers go after Moriarty and Bill! And then Butcher, Blade, Kip, and the Varsity Athletes join in! People are sent into railing, and the Varsity Athletes mug Trent in the ring! Sterling tells them to keep going, but here comes ORANGE CASSIDY himself!

The Freshly Squeezed International Champion is here, he runs the Varsity Athletes off swinging his backpack, but the other entrants are still brawling it out on the outside! Cassidy shows off the prize, but here comes THE MACHINE! Brian Cage storms his way down to the ring, but here comes KEITH LEE! He and Dustin Rhodes storm their way down to the ring, and they add a lot of beef to the brawl! Naturally Limitless mugs Cage, the Varsity Athletes still mug Trent, and Cassidy just looks around at the chaos. But then “Whose House? SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve is here in person, but he doesn’t seem in any rush to save Cage.

Keith eyes Swerve from the ramp, but Dustin still throws hands on Cage. Keith storms up after Swerve, but Swerve laughs and dares him to follow backstage. Cage turns things around on Dustin, all the other teams keep beating on each other! If this is how it is to close Rampage, how much wilder will it get when the title is on the line?

My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage for the go-home of Double or Nothing, and obviously since we didn’t see the traditional pre-battle-royal brawl on Dynamite, of course we saw it here to close the show. The main event tag match was great stuff, and what a great surprise that Best Friends didn’t win! The go-home math now says Moriarty & Morrissey aren’t winning, though I would love if one of them did have a belt. Honestly, they’re trying to make it seem like Cassidy is going to retain the title, since almost everyone else in the battle royal either A) has a feud going already or B) just isn’t at midcard champion level yet.

For example, Swerve & Cage VS Keith & Dustin. We should’ve had some kind of blowoff way sooner than this, maybe on a themed Dynamite and in a No Disqualification style match. Same thing for Ricky Starks, Jay White and Juice Robinson being in this match. But that problem goes all the way back to how AEW handled Starks VS Jericho and the Jericho Appreciation Society. In the end, if anyone new is winning this belt, I would actually want it to be Komander. Komander is still with AAA, so I would love to see him do a tour of Mexico with the title the same way Pac toured the UK with it to establish that first reign.

Decent squash match from Ethan & Gunns beating those jobbers we never even got the names of, and great promo with Hardy Party to establish a new take on the Six Man Tag. Hook joining is a natural choice given he helped the Hardys against The Firm before, but something about this feels like the same backwards pacing as we’ve seen with Starks. The Hardys should’ve turned the contract control tables on Ethan way before The Firm Deletion, with The Firm Deletion being the blowoff that sends the Hardys and Ethan in different directions. Hook & Hardys will definitely win, and we will get who knows how many months of shenanigans where Matt orders Ethan around.

Really good women’s tag match with Britt & Shida winning, even though there’s nothing to win for women’s tag teams in AEW anymore/right now. But of course The Outcasts attack Hayter 3v1 to put her on the defensive. This go-home math would mean Hayter overcomes the odds because she has Britt & Shida helping against Saraya & Ruby. Personally, I’m hoping Taya Valkyrie beats Jade Cargill for the TBS Championship, so that Jade can then jump up to the world title scene and really just tear into all six ladies. What bigger way to lead into AEW Collision, AEW All In and AEW All Out this Summer than with Jade finally being more than the midcard champion?

And great stuff at the beginning with The Acclaimed VS LFI. I just knew Acclaimed would find a way to win and then call out The House of Black. Apparently House of Black issued an open challenge for Double or Nothing, so The Acclaimed has answered it already. I am curious to know what stipulation The Acclaimed will bring to the Open House, but I really can’t be sure who wins. The House of Black have made the Trios Championships unique from the other titles, and have a growing popularity with the fans, but The Acclaimed are also really popular. This is like how AEW booked themselves into a corner with Hobbs VS Wardlow, and look where that’s gotten Hobbs.

My Score: 8.7/10
