8 Man Tag: The Acclaimed & FTR w/ Billy Gunn VS The Gunn Club & Swerve In Our Glory w/ The Firm!

While Max Caster & Anthony Bowens have the belts everybody wants in the AEW World Tag Team Championships, they and the THREE BELT CHAMPS, Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood, are banding together to take on common enemies in Austin & Colten Gunn, as well as Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland. But with tensions running high, will Keith Lee be able to coexist with the “ASS~ BOYS~!” and his own tag partner?

But of course, Platinum Max has a diss track on deck! “Acclaimed on the mic, got the place goin’ crazy. Y’all’re ’bout to take more L’s than Tom Brady! Keith defending Swerve is awkward. He’s got the receipts like he’s Herschel Walker! I make you cry ’til your eyes are burnin’, I make you sorry like Kyrie Irving! When you say ‘Whose house?’ we gotta ax that noise. Because we’re dealing with two snakes and the Ass Boys!” Bowens says, “BOSTOOOOOON~! The Acclaimed have arrived!” And Billy Gunn hurries right past him to SPEAR Swerve! Billy throws down hands but FTR & The Acclaimed pull him back!

The Gunn Sons are furious and they get Swerve to safety, but Boston is thunderous for “Daddy Ass! Daddy Ass!” BJ Whitmer, on behalf of AEW management, hurries out to calm Billy down. Billy steps away but BJ tells him to go the back. Fans boo that Daddy Ass is ejected, but the teams sort out. Dax starts against Colten as fans still sing, “OH~ Scissor Me Daddy~!” Colten and Dax circle, tie up, and Colten puts Dax in the corner. The ref counts, Colten lets off but with a cheap shot! Colten stomps a mudhole, stops as the ref counts 4, and then he runs back in to DROPKICK Dax down! Colten talks trash but Boston boos him.

Tag to Austin, the Gunn Sons mug Dax, and then Austin ROCKS Dax with a right. Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~” and that distracts Austin, and Dax ROCKS him right back!

Keith scoops, Caster slips out and CHOPS! And SUPERKICKS! Austin runs in, Caster ELBOWS him down! Colten runs in but gets an ELBOW, too! Swerve slithers in but Caster still back drops him! Caster jumps at Keith while Bowens gets Swerve and FTR get one Gunn each! The champions have their challengers in all four corners, and fans count as the fists rain down! Everyone gets to TEN, so that’s FORTY punches total! But while Swerve & The Gunns bail out, Keith throws Caster off!

FTR fire off hands together and Keith wobbles. The Acclaimed double whip FTR for them to double whip The Acclaimed, and they DOUBLE SHOULDER TACKLE Keith down! Keith tumbles out and fans fire up, as The Acclaimed SCISSOR FINGER~! But then the teams bump into each other, and are very jumpy! They calm down when the realize who is who, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Fans fire up for these four, and they want them to scissor finger! FTR offer, and The Acclaimed accept! Boston is having fun as Dax tags in. Dax CLUBS Keith, then he and Bowens get Keith in the ring. Dax DECKS Swerve as he creeps over, but Austin rushes in! Dax DECKS Austin, but Colten distracts the ref so that W. MORRISSEY can BOOT Dax down! The human skyscraper makes a difference, and the ref misses it! Cash coaches Dax up and Keith wonders what happened. Colten puts Dax in but Bowens chases him off after that.

Tag to Colten and Colten stomps Dax. Colten bumps Dax off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, then he taunts Cash & The Acclaimed. The ref has to keep those three back, allowing Austin to CHOKE Dax! Keith doesn’t approve but Austin gets away with it. Colten stomps another mudhole in while Austin soaks up the heat. Colten keeps Dax from his corner to CLUB away! Tag to Swerve and he grinds Dax down with a facelock.

Austin goes up and Keith gets ready to throw him, but Dax YANKS Keith! Dax ROCKS Austin, climbs up to get him, and Dax SUPERPLEXES Austin onto everyone!! Fans lose their minds again as all eight men are down at ringside! Dax and Austin rise, and Dax pushes Austin into the ring. Dax storms up but Austin JABS! Dax staggers back, but Austin JABS again! And JABS, JABS, then does a strut, “SUCK IT!” but Dax trips Austin!

Dax has the legs, for the SHARPSHOOTER!! Boston is thunderous but Colten gets in to ROCK Dax with that right hand! Colten kicks low, says “SUCK IT!” and then runs, but Dax sends Colten at Bowens! THE ARRIVAL! Caster is up top, MIC DROP! FTR aim for Austin, THE BIG RIG!! Bowens covers, the champions win!

The AEW World Tag Team Champions are rolling, as are the ROH-IWGP-AAA World Tag Team Champions! Will Caster & Bowens settle things with Swerve & Keith to finally give FTR their shot at the one pair of belts they don’t have?

 

AEW shares MJF’s comments from the Pardon My Take podcast.

The big question was of course, MJF hasn’t been seen on AEW TV since The Firm’s brutal attack, but he has the AEW World Championship match at Full Gear. How is he feeling? “After The Firm attacked me in a very cowardice fashion, doctors informed me that if I want to be 110% come Full Gear, I definitely shouldn’t be traveling on the road. And to be frank, the only thing I’m worried about is that match at Full Gear against Jon Moxley. See, this is the most important match in my entire career. But what I don’t think wrestling fans understand is this also possibly the most important match in the history of our sport. Allow me to explain why.

“This could be the potential crowning of the next face of the next generation of professional wrestling. Every once in awhile, every once in a blue moon, really, we see people that lead the charge of a generation and bring professional wrestling to new heights. Guys like Bruno Sammartino, Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair. Guys like Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold, The Rock, John Cena. All of these men were generational talents. And that is exactly who MJF is. So here’s what’s gonna happen: all I have to do to etch my name into history is to have a long, fruitful world title reign, and the only person that’s getting in my way is Jon Moxley.

“Now, I’m not gonna sit here, Big Cat, I’m not gonna sit here and pretend that Jon Moxley is an easy competitor to beat. I don’t like you, Jon. I think you’re a lowlife scumbag piece of s*it, I think you’re from the slums of Cincinnati, and I think you have absolutely no class, but I do respect you. Because Jon, you weren’t born to be a world champion. As a matter of fact, you were born with two left feet and not one single athletic bone in your body. However, I respect you because you had to work your ass off to become the man you are today. Blood, sweat, tears, sacrifices. You had to defy all the odds doing 15 hour drives to wrestle in front of 15 people for $15.

“And you did it over, and over, and over again, honing your craft until eventually, you did the damn near impossible, Jon Moxley, and you became the best professional wrestler on God’s green earth. But know this: Come November 19th, you’re about to lose that handle because I was born to not just be a professional wrestler, but to be the professional wrestler. I’m the guy who can come on the number one sports podcast in the world, Pardon My Take. I’m the guy who can do movies, TV shows, commercials, talk shows, and I can wave the flag of the AEW brand, and hell! I can wave the flag of pro-wrestling and bring pro-wrestling back to where it belongs, something that everyone is talking about.

“Every single wrestling fan, promoter, pundit and analyst is fully aware that that throne is for the taking, and I’m the one who’s going to take it. I am so sick of waiting my turn. Ever since I entered AEW, I have had to get the spotlight stolen from me in my big moments. My first-ever singles PPV match, the spotlight was on a neck tattoo. My first-ever world title shot, which was against you, Jon Moxley, when you cheated, the spotlight was on Matt Hardy taking a fall like Humpty Dumpty. The first-ever Blood & Guts match, I am standing atop of the cage, with a crimson mask. I had prevailed, that should’ve been my crowning moment. Instead, the spotlight was on Chris Jericho.

“Speaking of Chris Jericho, he stole the spotlight from me for a full calendar year. And then, on my big return, the spotlight was on a press conference. Know this, Jon. On November 19th at Full Gear in the Tristate Area, Newark, New Jersey, in the Prudential Center, I am not waiting for the spotlight anymore, I am grabbing it! And you are going to have to take it out of my cold, dead hands, Jon. Your boy, William Regal, bet on the wrong horse. I don’t need a diamond ring to knock your lights out. Cuz come Full Gear, the Devil gets his due.” Maxwell Jacob Friedman didn’t even need his catchphrase there. Will his actions prove he is better than Moxley, and he knows it?

 

Stokely Hathaway speaks.

“When Max and I were younger, I thought we wanted the same things: money; cars; clothes. But someone forgot where they came from. They wanted to be liked, they wanted that good ol’ fashioned pat on the back. And I thought that when my best friend would possibly win his first world championship, I would be by his side. But instead, he’s dick-riding Jon Moxley, and the worst crime you can commit is dick-riding without a license. So Max, I don’t need you. I don’t need my best friend. I can do this by myself. So win, lose or draw at Full Gear, I’ll see you in Hell, Max!”

 

AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament, Opening Round: Ethan Page w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Eddie Kingston w/ Ortiz!

Speaking of Full Gear, the tournament tradition is back again! And All Ego wants to be the one to make it to the end and get that golden ticket! Will Ethan be in New Jersey to watch Moxley VS MJF? Or will the Mad King break Ethan’s bracket right from the start?

The bell rings and Ethan circles with Eddie. Boston is fired up for Eddie, he and Ethan tie up, and Eddie puts Ethan in the corner. The ref counts, Ethan complains and Eddie lets off. Ortiz tells Ethan to stop complaining and get in there. Ethan and Eddie circle, feel things out, and they tie up. Eddie headlocks, fans duel, and Ethan powers up, only for Eddie to hold tight. Ethan fights up and he puts Eddie in a corner. The ref calls the ropebreak but Ethan throws body shots! Ethan throws haymakers but Eddie turns things around to CHOP! And CHOP! But Ethan ROCKS Eddie! And ROCKS him again! Ethan goes up for a FLYING UPPERCUT!

Eddie bails out, Ethan goes to the apron, and Ethan FLYING SHOULDERS Eddie down! Ethan soaks up the heat as Boston is torn. “Look at me! You’re looking at the next world champ.” Ethan SLAMS Eddie’s arm on the floor, then stands him up to ROCK Eddie again. Eddie slides into the ring but Ethan pursues to CLUB Eddie! And ROCK him again! Ethan whips, Eddie reverses and KNEES Ethan at the ropes! Eddie underhooks for a BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Cover, TWO! Eddie keeps on Ethan with a whip to the corner, but Ethan reverses, and Eddie hits buckles hard! Eddie flops out of the ring but Ethan goes out after him.

Ethan ROCKS Eddie with another forearm, then brings him around to suplex to the floor! Both men writhe and the ring count starts as AEW goes picture in picture.

Ethan stands and he stares Ortiz down. Ethan then goes to Eddie but Eddie CHOPS! And CHOPS! Eddie CLAWS Ethan’s face! The ref reprimands, Ethan lets off and he puts Eddie in the ring. Ethan runs to drop an elbow! Cover, ONE!! Ethan clamps onto Eddie with a chinlock and he leans on the hold. Eddie endures and fans rally up. Eddie fights up, he backs Ethan into buckles, and he gets free! Eddie runs in but Ethan BOOTS him away! Ethan goes up the ropes and leaps, into an ENZIGURI! Both men are down and Stokely is worried. Stokely coaches Ethan up but Eddie CHOPS! And CHOPS! And MACHINE GUN CHOPS!

Eddie CHOPS Ethan down, then steps on his face in the corner! Eddie goes side to side, but Ethan scoops him for a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Ethan is frustrated but he kicks Eddie around. Ethan JAMS his knee into Eddie’s back, and again, and again! Then he drops another elbow! Ethan shouts at the fans then pretends he can’t hear them. Ethan grins, blows a kiss and tells Boston to kiss his ass. Ethan stalks Eddie to ropes and CHOKES him! The ref counts, Ethan lets off at 4, and then Ethan drags Eddie up. Ethan reels Eddie in, but Eddie resists the lift! Dynamite returns to single picture as Eddie keeps fighting!

Eddie wrenches out to SAIDO! Cover, TWO!! Ethan survives and Stokely is relieved. Stokely says a quick prayer that Ethan get back in this but Boston rallies behind Eddie. Eddie sits Ethan up to throw a haymaker. Ethan returns the shot, but Eddie does, too. They go back and forth, haymakers and forearms back and forth! Eddie gets the edge, they both stand, and Ethan ROCKS Eddie with a forearm! Eddie haymakers, Ethan gets the edge with elbows! Eddie roars to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Then DDT! Cover, TWO!! Ethan is still in this and Eddie is surprised. Eddie drags himself up, snarls at Stokely, then hobbles after Ethan.

Eddie clinches but Ethan fights it. Ethan ROCKS Eddie with a big forearm! Ethan whips, Eddie reverse and clinches, EXPLODER! Ethan sits up in a daze but Eddie is right on him! Eddie steps over, hooks Ethan’s arm and head, for the STRETCH PLUM! But Stokely distracts the ref so that he doesn’t see the tap out! Eddie would’ve won! But Ortiz trips Stokely up! Stokely runs away, Eddie turns around into a BOOT! But Eddie stays up! But Ethan ducks the Uraken to ROUNDHOUSE! Eddie is dazed now and Ethan goes to a corner. Ethan climbs up, even as Eddie crawls. Eddie springs up to ROCK Ethan!

Eddie climbs up to go after Ethan, and he BITES Ethan’s forehead!! But Ethan slips out to trip Eddie up! The Mad King is stuck on his throne, and Ethan goes up to use the straps to bring Eddie in! Crucifix lift, and fans are thunderous for the SUPER EGO’S EDGE!! Cover, Ethan wins!!

Winner: Ethan Page, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

The first man into the semifinals is All Ego! Rampage will feature Rush VS Bandido, who will meet Ethan in the next round?

 

Backstage interview with The Dark Order and La Faccion Ingobernable.

Speaking of Rush, he is with Jose the Assistant as Renee Paquette interviews them, Evil Uno, John Silver, Alex Reynolds & Preston Vance. This Friday is Rush VS Bandido in the Eliminator Tournament, but it seems LFI asked for this time to specifically talk to Vance. This is how it’s going to go: Rush will win the whole tournament, become AEW World Champion, so sorry Renee, and then, because Rush liked how Vance brought the fight and stays in shape consistently, Vance will receive the very first title shot from Rush. And while the rest of The Dark Order is here, Jose is telling the “bunch of clowns” that they are never, ever getting a shot!

Rush steps up to Vance and tells him to think about the offer. “Because Rush doesn’t give second opportunities, perro!” Silver tells the “Rush bag” to back off. Jose keeps Rush from tearing into the Meat Man, but will El Toro Blanco keep his word and give Number 10 that golden opportunity in the near future?

 

Ari Daivari & Jeeves Kay are in the ring.

Daivari Dinero says, “I have made a very lucrative offer for a certain member of the AEW roster. I am willing to offer the full services of my butler in exchange for the TNT Championship.” Jeeves is confused, he thought they were paying Wardlow off. Daivari tells Wardlow, “Think about this. You can go from being MJF’s servant, to having your very own. Oh how the tables have turned!” Wardlow makes his entrance, Samoa Joe by his side. It would seem the TNT Champion has found someone to answer the Open Challenge. Will Wardlow take Daivari up on the deal? Or will his counteroffer be a very painful one?

AEW TNT Championship Open Challenge: Wardlow w/ Samoa Joe VS Ari Daivari w/ Jeeves Kay!

The introductions are made, the belt is handed over and Wardlow shakes Daivari’s hand! Wardlow also shakes Jeeves’s hand, before he kicks him low and THROWS him out of the ring! Wardlow faked Daivari out! The bell rings, Daivari wants timeout, but fans chant, “YOU F’D UP! YOU F’D UP!” Daivari kicks but Wardlow blocks, and HEADBUTTS him! Daivari flops over and Wardlow smirks. Wardlow drags Daivari up, winds up, and LARIATS! Daivari flounders and fans fire up as Wardlow says it’s time. Wardlow brings Daivari up for a POWERBOMB! Fans want the encore, and Wardlow obliges!

Wardlow drags Daivari up, brings him back in, and he POWERBOMBS Daivari again! The fans keep on singing along to the symphony, and Wardlow brings Daivari up again! THIRD POWERBOMB! And then the roll through to the FOURTH! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

Wardlow kicks Daivari out of the ring and gets a mic to call out Will Hobbs! Wardlow wants Hobbs to show up right now! So here comes the Powerhouse! Hobbs asks, “You want me? That’s twice. We’re doing this on my time.” But Wardlow shouts on the mic, “Finally! Finally, I have a suitable opponent for my title. And thanks for coming out face to face like a man this time.” Wardlow is telling Hobbs now, Hobbs ain’t getting the TNT title, it is HIS, and will always be HIS! And for that matter, Wardlow is gonna take EVERY title in this company! Hobbs says no, they do this on Hobbs’ time.

But wait! JOE CLOBBERS WARDLOW! The ROH World Television Champion let the disrespect slide last week, but not this time! And then he clamps on the COQUINA CLUTCH!! Wardlow is turning red!! Fans are losing their minds as Wardlow fades out!! Hobbs is intrigued, and then Joe grabs both belts! Hobbs says he’ll kick both their asses, but Joe tells Wardlow to get a good night’s sleep. Will these three behemoths battle for both those belts to be THE face of AEW television?

 

Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & The Baddies.

Renee is the AEW TBS Champion, as well as her girls, Leila Grey & Kiera Hogan, and notes how Nyla Rose is still taunting Jade with the TBS title belt. But now, it is official, at Full Gear, we will see Jade VS Nyla for the TBS Championship. How will that go? Jade says she’s “gonna handle Nyla’s ass at Full Gear.” And Nyla is still parading around with Jade’s belt, declaring an open challenge! Jade is sick of it! If Nyla wants to be in Boston for Rampage, then Jade will handle her this Friday! Jade heads out, Kiera & Leila hurry after, but will the Native Beast and her Vicious Vixens see them coming?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

And he says it is time for a face-to-face! Welcome first, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD! The Dentist refused to join Renee and Saraya for a sit-down interview last week, because she wants to do this her way. Britt goes to the ring to join Schiavone, and then Schiavone welcomes Saraya! #THERevolution makes her way out now and joins Schiavone and Britt in the ring, and everyone has a mic. Schiavone starts by saying Saraya had something she wanted to tell all of us, including Britt, in person. Here we are, so what is the news? Saraya says first, she bets the fans are really wondering about “it.” Is Saraya cleared to wrestle or not?

Saraya will let us know that a couple weeks ago, she got MRIs, X-rays, CT scans, and unfortunately… for Britt… Saraya is 100 CLEARED!! Fans are thunderous to learn Saraya’s back for real! Saraya says AEW is HER HOUSE!! Britt frowns and says, “Well, is there anything more fickle than an AEW fan? So, you’re cleared? What does that even mean? Do you still know how to do this?” Britt says they aren’t cleared. Saraya has been coming after Britt since she first got here, and why is that? Britt thinks she has it, so let’s see if this is clear. “I built AEW from the ground up until it became a fortress that wrestlers like you. No, that superstars like you wanted to move into. And I’m damn proud of that!”

Fans chant for “DMD!” for what she did do, but Britt continues. “But that pride turned into resentment very quickly when you had the audacity to skip in here and call it your house. Because it’s funny. I don’t recall you laying a single brick. And I understand, I finally get it. I know why you’re obsessed with me. It’s because I am everything you wish you could have been. And, if you think I’m lying, if you think that’s not true, let me remind you… You left your house and walked into mine. And Saraya, I regret to inform you that we don’t take walk-ins. So bitch, make an appointment!” Fans fire up as Britt snaps back.

Saraya says it’s so cute Britt puts herself on a pedestal consider she was handed a position by Tony Khan. She then got fed a bunch of QT’s trainees, and has only be in front of the camera for three years, when Saraya’s been in this business for 30, 17 professionally. So Britt doesn’t know what it takes to be a superstar! Britt doesn’t know what it takes to even be a STAR! Saraya traveled up and down the UK and all around Europe for free because she loves this business! She got hit by a CAR and wrestled the same day because she loves this business! She handed out resumes to promoters and turned down, for the sheer fact that she was female.

Britt has no idea what it takes to make it. Saraya was starting revolutions before they were a trend, and before wrestling was a twinkle in Britt’s eye! Saraya has done Madison Square Garden, the O2, and the Tokyo Dome! “And now I’m in front of an ungrateful BITCH!” Britt doesn’t know what it takes! Saraya has been publicly humiliated in front of millions of people. She battled a drug addiction, publicly. And she’s given her career and her neck for this business. Britt doesn’t have a clue what it takes to make it. But here we go! Here’s another opportunity handed to Britt on a silver platter. This is Saraya’s comeback story, and Britt’s biggest match ever.

Saraya says it will be Saraya VS Britt 1v1, AT FULL GEAR!! Mic drop! Britt is speechless for once but Boston is fired up! But then Britt swings on Saraya! Saraya dodges, mule kicks, and she scoops Britt for the RAMPAIGE!! “THIS IS MY HOUSE~!!” The Revolution is back, will she prove to the DMD that she is NOT the Face of AEW?

 

AEW goes backstage with Jay Lethal and friends.

Lexi Nair is on the scene as Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh thanked QT Marshall and the Factory for the assist. Not only that, but Cole Karter earned every dollar in this envelope for pulling off the fake Sting trick. Lethal assures them, it’s all there, they don’t have to check it. But QT still does, and he gives Karter his cut. Pleasure doing business. Next time will be half off. Nice! But oh, well! Laugh it up, says Danhausen! He points at them all for ruining Danhausen’s Halloween! And then Lee Johnson had to go and join this “goon squad of bad people!” Orange Cassidy tells Big Shotty to not hit his friends.

QT says hold on, they’re not fighting back here. The Factory fights in the ring. So since Cassidy loves putting the All-Atlantic Championship on the line, put it on the line against Lee Johnson this Friday! No problem. See you then. As for Trent, he says, “Sup, scumbags?” to Lethal and friends. What was that? Who’s he talking to? Trent steps closer. “I said, ‘What’s up, scumbags?'” Oh, he thinks they’re scumbags! Well, wanna do something about it? Yeah! They can fight tonight on Dynamite! See you out there. Lethal and his friends seem confused, but will Lethal be able to take the fight to #JustTrent?

Trent Beretta w/ Chuck Taylor & Danhausen VS Jay Lethal w/ Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh!

Speaking of taking the fight to Trent, Lethal CHOP BLOCKS Trent at the ramp! Lethal stomps the leg while fans boo, and Lethal hits a GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Lethal throws off his vest, he stomps Trent’s leg more, then he ROCKS Trent with a haymaker. Trent flounders but Lethal brings him up. Trent CHOPS and ROCKS Lethal, but Lethal knees low! Lethal whips Trent into the steel steps! Trent goes tumbling up and over! Lethal keeps on Trent’s leg while Sonjay & Satnam finally stroll on out. Lethal STOMPS Trent’s leg against the steps! Lethal mocks the fans with his applause, then he stomps Trent’s leg again.

Lethal puts Trent in, Trent finally gets his jacket off, and the bell rings to make this official. Lethal KICKS the bad leg out! Lethal stalks Trent as he hobbles up, and Lethal KICKS the leg out again! Lethal taunts the fans but Trent ROCKS him with rights! Lethal kicks the bad leg, brings Trent to a corner and goes up, but Trent yanks Lethal down for a SAIDO! Lethal flounders away, Trent forces himself to stand, and he ROCKS Lethal at the ropes. Trent fires off forearm after forearm, the ref counts and backs Trent off at 4. Trent snarls, but Lethal mule kicks the leg out! Lethal KICKS the bad leg, grabs the leg, and SHIN BREAKERS!

Lethal then DRAGON SCREWS Trent right out of the ring! Trent clutches his leg while Lethal dusts his hands off. But here come Chuck and Danhausen finally! Fans cheer as things are even now, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Chuckie T and Danhausen check Trent but Lethal goes out after Trent. Sonjay tells Chuck and Danhausen to back down but they say the same to him and Satnam. But Lethal CHOP BLOCKS the leg again! And then he steps through for a FIGURE FOUR! A tap out won’t count outside the ring, Lethal’s just doing this to be cruel! Trent endures, Chuck coaches him up, and Lethal lets go to get in the ring. Lethal refreshes the count, but then Trent slides in. Lethal just drags Trent out by the bad leg, to hit a KNEE BREAKER! Lethal then says “WOO~!” and steps through again. But Trent throws Lethal away! Trent gets up, but Lethal CLOBBERS him back down!

Lethal tells Chuck to back off, then he drags Trent up. Lethal puts Trent in the ring, hauls him up, and hits another SHIN BREAKER! Lethal drops an elbow on the leg, and another, and then another! Lethal pulls on the toehold but Trent endures. Trent fishhooks Lethal’s nose but the ref reprimands. Lethal shakes that off to sit up and pull even harder on the toehold! Trent snarls, throws’ body shots, and he gets Lethal to let go. But then Lethal DECKS Trent! Lethal drags Trent up to CLUB him, and then again! But Trent fights back with body shots! Trent ROCKS Lethal, ROCKS him again, but then swings into the LETHAL COMBINATION!

Lethal fireman’s carries to FLAPJACK, and then LETHAL INJECTION! Cover, Lethal wins!

Winner: Jay Lethal, by pinfall

The scumbags help each other again and Lethal comes out on top! Schiavone waits for them on stage to interview them about that. Sonjay grabs the mic to tell Schiavone to shut up and sit back down! Did you see what Sonjay did last week? HE runs this place! So sit down! Sonjay says he promised a huge surprise and he delivered! Their good friend, the Hall of Famer, the legendary JEFF JARRETT! Double J makes his entrance, guitar in hand. Jeff gets the mic to say, “That’s right! After over a million views of the debut of the Last Outlaw, it’s very apparent. The question is, why is the Last Outlaw in AEW?”

Fans mouth off and Jeff tells them to shut the hell up! Jeff will tell us why he’s here! “When a friend calls, a friend shows up. And that’s exactly what Jeff Jarrett did. I showed up to help and put a plan together, and we started last week. You probably wondering how the four of us guys are connected, I’m gonna tell ya. This guy right here, Jay Lethal, I signed him to his very first contract. He’s oozed machismo his entire career. He’s got wins over the Nature Boy, Ric Flair, Sting, and yes, he even became a Grand Slam Champion in ROH. Sonjay Dutt has an IQ of 181. Do I need to say anymore? We have taken over promotions all over the globe!

“And Satnam. C’mon up here, Satnam. This is a legit 7’5″ GIANT! Cameraman, start at his feet and pan up, slow pan. This isn’t no make-believe monster who wears red skinny jeans and is produced by the banana nosed circus. This guy is one in a billion! Why’s he one in a billion? That’s the name of his Netflix special! He’s the only player in the history of the NBA, the history of the National Basketball Association, to be born and bred in India! So Sting, Darby Allin, you here? I’m calling you out! Darby, we put you in a body bag last week. Sting, we’re gonna put you in a body bag. We’ll take you on. Are you winding me up?” The production crew is trying to have Jeff wrap!

“Don’t you EVER wind me up! Do you understand me? I’m putting the challenge out right now. Tonight on Dynamite, next week on Dynamite, or Full Gear! Don’t ever wind me up again, do you hear me?!” Jeff then starts chasing the guy with his guitar!! Sonjay has Jeff cool off. But will the Last Outlaw give AEW another smash hit when he sees The Icon?

 

Backstage interview with “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry.

Renee says the tensions continue to mount between him and Luchasaurus. JB cost Luchasaurus the All-Atlantic Championship last week, but where do they stand now? JB says the last thing he heard from Luchasaurus and Christian Cage is that they’re done with him. They’re moving on to bigger and better. But y’know what? Christian doesn’t get to decide when this is over! What happened last week was just the beginning when JB left Luchasaurus laying in a pile of wood. Renee says Full Gear is just around the corner, so what does that mean?

JB can’t wait for Full Gear. He has a challenge for Christian & Luchasaurus. But unlike them, JB does his business face to face. He’ll tell them the challenge on Rampage this Friday! Just what will Jungle Boy have in mind for the men who betrayed him?

 

Jon Moxley is here!

The Maniac AEW World Champion makes his way through the crowd and heads to the ring, William Regal by his side. Moxley then gets the mic to say, “Sir William Regal, how old was I when we first me? 25? 26? Something like that. Back then, I was young and full of piss and vinegar, I didn’t have crippling arthritis yet, I could move around pretty good. I really thought I knew it all. I really thought I had it all figured out. And I loved to talk trash, as you remember. I kept running my mouth over and over. I wanted to be just like you (Regal). Feared and respected. I wanted to be a real top guy in professional wrestling.

“So to prove myself to you, to get my respect, I tried to pick a fight with you. And that did not go well. That did not go well at all. You tortured me. You physically tortured me, brutalized me, kicked the hell out of me, and it pissed me off cuz I found out exactly where I was on the food chain. And it drove me to work harder, and train harder, and to grow and evolve, and one day come back and get my revenge. And when I got another shot at you, I made it count. If you remember, I knocked you out with a knee to the face and ripped your ear off the side of your head. You do remember that.” Regal nods, he definitely remembers.

Moxley says Regal then told him, as he finally took Moxley under his wing, “And now the real work begins.” Moxley says, “Who does that young, impetuous kid remind you of, Sir William?” Regal nods, knowing where Moxley is going with this. “It reminds us of young Maxwell Jacob Friedman, whom I will face at Full Gear for the AEW World Championship. Now I first wrestled MJF well over a year ago. Probably the Summer of 2020, he challenged me for the AEW World Championship, and he though the had it all figured out back then. He thought that this was his time.

“So I beat the hell out of him, I bloodied him up, and I sent him packing. I let him know exactly where he stood in the pecking order. But now, all these months later, he’s come back around again for another shot. So the question is, what’s gonna be different this time? I mean, who is MJF? It’s hard to figure out. He seems to be having some kind of existential identity crisis right now. Who exactly is MJF? We know the MJF that he shows to the world. He dresses very nice, he wears a fake diamond ring, he wears the clothes his mom bought for him at JCPenney. He wants to put on the air of somebody rich and successful.

“He talks the talk of a big time world champion pro-wrestler, the kind he wants to be. But dude, I actually am a multimillionaire, multi-time world champion, so you can’t fool me. I ain’t buying it. He calls himself a pillar, even though he has no idea what it feels like to have any weight on his back. What’s more amusing is MJF calls himself, ‘The Devil.'” Regal pretends to be scared for like a second, then he smirks with Moxley as they chuckle over that. MJF says he’s the Devil of AEW. “Dude, I have seen the devil. I have met the devil, I have looked into his eyes. I have met some very bad people, been some very bad places, seen some bad people do some very bad things. Dude, you are not that. You are not that at all.

“And I want you, as William Regal wants you, to fulfill your potential one day and put this company on your back. We are, after all, teachers. You can do your song and dance in the lead up to Full Gear, you can talk trash, your dog ‘n’ pony show. I’m not worried about that at all. I’m worried about what you got in your guts, because I’m gonna bring it outta ya. When you step into the ring in your hometown in Newark, New Jersey at Full Gear, just remember one thing: Everything you’ve done up to this point has been easy.” Mic drop! The Blue Eyed Battler puts it all on Maxwell Jacob Friedman, will the Salt of the Earth be worth his salt?

 

Another video where The Elite disappear.

But it’s also part Full Gear steampunk aesthetic. A montage of all the things Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks have done in AEW, both in and out of the ring, online and in person, even before AEW was formed, and even before The Elite were pro-wrestlers. Everything is converging at Full Gear!! What happens to All Elite Wrestling when The Elite finally returns?

 

AEW hears from Bryan Danielson and Sammy Guevara.

The Spanish God says Bryan knows Sammy has his number. “Bryan knows damn well that if Sammy Guevara and Bryan Danielson get in the ring again, it’s going to be different.” The American Dragon says “It always impresses me when the younger talent steps into the ring with me after I’ve kicked their head in, and they want to fight me again.” Bryan tells Sammy that his face will represent the disrespect that Bryan has felt from Chris Jericho and the way he treats the ROH World Championship. It is the disrespect from Daniel Garcia after everything Bryan put into him to show him that he is a WRESTLER! The DISRESPECT from Wheeler Yuta!!

ALL that disrespect is going to be put right into Sammy’s face tonight when Bryan kicks his head in!! The classic from two weeks ago gets one hell of a rematch! Who wins two out of three falls to put things to rest between American Dragon and Spanish God?

 

Jamie Hayter w/ Britt Baker & Rebel VS Skye Blue!

Britt Baker handled The Coach, Madison Rayne, and now the #1 contender to the Interim AEW Women’s World Champion looks to handle The Student! Will Hayter turn Skye black ‘n’ blue before going after Toni Storm? Or will Skye stop the hate before Full Gear?

But speaking of Storm, she surprises Hayter by being in Skye’s corner! The bell rings and Hayter storms over to shout at Storm. Skye turns Hayter around to fire off forearms! Skye whips, Hayter holds ropes then bails out! Skye hurries out after her to ROCK her! Hayter ROCKS Skye back, then whips her into railing! Hayter scoops Skye, but Skye slips off to POST Hayter!

Hayter whips Skye to ropes then CLOBBERS her! Hayter covers, TWO! Hayter clamps onto Skye with a facelock and grinds her down. Skye endures, fans rally up, and Skye fights up. Skye throws body shots but Hayter throws her down by her hair! The ref reprimands and Hayter “apologizes.”

Hayter stomps Skye around, stands on Skye’s head, and tosses her own hair and fans herself off while the ref counts. Hayter steps away at 4 to drag Skye up and throw her out! Skye tumbles to the floor, Hayter shouts at Storm and the ref is distracted again. Britt taunts Skye then Hayter goes out to fetch her. Hayter puts Skye in the ring, takes her time returning, and then she stomps Skye around. Hayter CLUBS Skye down, drags her up, and CLUBS her again! Hayter stands on Skye’s hair but Skye swipes at her. Hayter steps away, drags Skye up and CLUBS her again. Hayter drags Skye up again, but Skye fires off forearms!

Dynamite returns to single picture and Skye fires off! Hayter pulls hair! Skye ducks the haymaker to run and SHOTGUN! Fans fire up and Skye runs in, but Hayter puts her on the apron. Skye ROCKS Hayter first, then rushes Britt! Britt moves so Rebel takes the PENALTY KICK! Skye SUPERKICKS Britt, then she GAMANGIRIS Hayter! Skye goes up, CROSSBODIES and covers, TWO! Hayter is still in this but Skye keeps her cool. Skye drags Hayter up but Hayter kicks low and scoops. Skye slips off, full nelsons, but Hayter breaks to switch! Ripcord, HATE- NO, Skye ducks to roll Hayter. Hayter blocks the kick and spins Skye, but Skye SLIDING-GIRIS!

Hayter wobbles, Skye runs, and she hops on to CODE BLUE!! Cover, TWO!! Hayter survives and Skye is shocked! Fans rally and duel as Hayter stirs. Skye pleads with the ref about the count, but Hayter rolls her up! TWO!!! Hayter ROCKS Skye with a right! Hayter fires off more forearms on Skye, but Skye ROCKS Hayter back! Hayter DECKS Skye! Hayter runs, into a SUPERKICK! Skye runs, but Hayter follows to BOOT! Hayter bumps Skye off buckles, CHOKES her, and talks trash! The ref counts, Hayter lets off at 4, and she CHOPS! And CHOPS! And whips corner to corner, but Skye goes up! Hayter gets under! Electric Chair, spin into the wheelbarrow!

Hayter blocks Skye’s bulldog, to ripcord and HATEMAKER!! Cover, Hayter wins!

Winner: Jamie Hayter, by pinfall

And Hayter adds on by stomping Skye! Storm rushes in and runs Hayter off! But in the end, big bully Jamie has a win, and she’s red hot going into Full Gear! Will #ToniTime run out? Or will the Lightning From Down Under strike down a former friend?

 

AEW hears from Brian Cage and Dante Martin.

The Machine tells the #INHUMAN Angel Dorado that he is excellent and phenomenal, a true high-flyer and a once in a generation athlete. But unfortunately, Brian Cage is a once in a lifetime athlete. Dante may be excellent, but he’s not better than Cage. No one is. But Dante says, “The bigger they are, the harder they fall. And this week, you’re gonna figure that out, Brian Cage. Because you’re gonna figure it out at the hands of the Inhuman Dante Martin. I’ll see you on Rampage.” Cage says all Dante is, is “one small step on the Path of Cage to becoming the NEW AEW World Champion. Because I’m not a man, I’m a MACHINE!”

Strength takes on speed in the World Title Eliminator Tournament, which wins out to move to the semifinals?

 

Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.

At least, that’s what Alex Marvez was hoping for but then Lance Archer says, “You wanna talk to Pretty Ricky Starks? Well this is your chance.” He’s holding Starks up by his hair! Archer throws Starks down and says, “I’ve got a very simple message. It’s that everybody dies!” He then dribbles Starks’ head off the garage door! “EVERYBODY DIES! Everybody in this tournament dies! This isn’t yours to win, it’s mine!” The Murderhawk Monster leaves Ricky Starks in an absolute mess! Will Archer crush Starks’ dreams to fulfill his own?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Full Gear!

After being called out by Jay Lethal & Jeff Jarrett, Darby Allin & Sting accept! It will be a tag match as the #RelentlessIcons return to action against the #LethalOutlaws! Will Lethal & Jarrett come through on their promise to end Darby & Sting? Or will Jay & Double J be the ones in those body bags?

 

Best 2 Out of 3 Falls: Bryan Danielson VS Sammy Guevara w/ Tay Melo!

The battle of Blackpool Combat Club and Jericho Appreciation Society continues! And while Full Gear will have a Fatal 4 Way for the ROH World Championship, the American Dragon accepted the Spanish God’s challenge to settle things 1v1! But will Sammy be able to rack up big points “winning twice” before Full Gear? Or will he just end up getting more of the same from their previous match?

Bryan builds speed, but Tay blocks the way! Fans boo as Sammy crawls his way to the chair. Bryan sighs and goes out, but the Brazilian Goddess says timeout! There’s no timeouts here! Bryan pushes past her, but Sammy CHUCKS THE CHAIR!!

The ref saw that and he calls this fall to an end! Bryan goes up one by disqualification!

Sammy and Tay don’t care, that chair shot means Sammy has an advantage! Sammy whips Bryan into the timekeeper’s table! And then clears it off, to JAM the mic into Bryan again and again and again!

And the American Dragon slays the Spanish God! This was wild with just these two! How much more insane will it be when you add Claudio Castagnoli and #THEOCHO, Chris Jericho, to the mix?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for AEW, and with just the go-home next week, they got a lot done here tonight to fill the Full Gear card. Because for one, AEW loves to load a ton of matches onto their PPVs. A great opener from the 8 Man Tag, and there was a brief moment of Keith being reluctant, but that’s the seed planted for the Swerve In Our Glory team falling apart against The Acclaimed. Likewise, FTR and Gunn Club are all but ready to fight over the ROH World Tag Team Championships. Maybe they stretch that out to be for ROH Final Battle as the big return for ROH to PPV. Acclaimed retain, but I feel like there will be Firm shenanigans that cost FTR.

Speaking of The Firm, a great start to the World Title Eliminator Tournament with Ethan VS Eddie, and a big win for Ethan. Stokely also had a good promo dissing MJF, but that was rough placement having it follow MJF’s long but great promo taken right from his podcast appearance. Moxley also had a great response promo, both guys are red hot going into the title match. I know there’s still the possibility that MJF is just setting up a huge swerve and The Firm rejoin him, but I would rather he just cheat all on his own so that he technically proves he can win on his own. Otherwise, it’s as bad as Daniel Garcia going right back to the JAS, but on an even larger scale.

We got good promos from other World Title Eliminator Tournament entrants, such as Cage and Dante’s. But I did like that Rush still ties in his story with Vance, so there’s still the possibility of seeing Rush VS Vance 1v1 as we’ve been waiting on since it was supposed to be Andrade VS Vance 1v1, but who knows when. Rush VS Bandido is going to be awesome and either guy could win that. Cage VS Dante feels like Cage’s win, but it’d be cool if Dante won. And Archer attacking Starks before an interview even happens was a good surprise, but I’m thinking this sets Starks up to win their match. As it stands, Starks and Ethan feel like the finalists for Full Gear.

Seems Daivari’s gimmick isn’t just using money to recruit people, but thinking money can buy him titles. He of course gets whooped by Wardlow, but this segment was more about Wardlow’s rage and ego getting the better of him before Samoa Joe just lets him have it. I hope we get a Winner Takes All Triple Threat between Wardlow, Joe and Hobbs because duh, it’s right there, just do it. Hobbs can be opportunistic in his win so that the odd man out is still strong, and then we can get a 1v1 story after that. Then Final Battle can have just the ROH World TV Championship, the double champ defending against whoever they want.

Pretty good promo from Cargill calling out Nyla, and that’s pretty funny that Nyla is having an open challenge for a title she doesn’t rightfully possess. Nyla is of course winning that, but it’s great story to tease that someone could take the title off Nyla to face Jade instead. Good stuff set up with Best Friends and a few Heel factions. Cassidy VS Lee Johnson will be a good title match but another win for Cassidy. Trent VS Lethal was good stuff but of course Lethal’s friends help him win. And I like that we’re getting Lethal & Jarrett VS Darby & Sting, that’ll be a very fun tag match. I’m pretty sure Jarrett’s team cheats to win since they have Sonjay & Satnam to distract.

Good promo from Jack Perry to call out Christian & Luchasaurus, and I’m wondering what this secret challenge will be. Can’t be a tag match, Christian’s arm is still healing, and I can’t picture anyone that could counter Luchasaurus. Maybe it’ll be a match type that is meant to keep Christian from getting involved, but Christian will find a way, only for it to fail. JB has to win this one to justify the story continuing until Christian is 100% again, and then JB VS Christian is the blow-off. And we got a very good match out of Hayter VS Skye, with Skye looking strong, but of course Hayter wins to build momentum towards her match with Storm.

Sadly, the women’s title is taking a backseat to Saraya VS Britt, and perhaps through no fault of their own. Saraya and Britt had a great promo together, with Britt making good points, but Saraya just tearing Britt apart. Hopefully Saraya really is cleared to have a full on match, and maybe they can book this to not be too rough. It’ll be great just for the fact it’s happening, and as I’ve been saying, Saraya has to win this one. And then the main event was awesome stuff, practically PPV worthy in itself. It was clever that Sammy gave Bryan the first fall with that disqualification to then get the next fall. In the end, Bryan wins out, which was a bit of a surprise, but also makes sense. But at the same time, I feel like this means Bryan does not win the Fatal 4, and we see if Sammy hands the win to Jericho.

My Score: 8.8/10

AEW takes a look at tonight’s TNT Championship No Holds Barred main event!

Darby Allin tells Samoa Joe, “I knew when I took this from you in Seattle that you’d want it back. And I know you’d stop at nothing to have it back. Well, I’m gonna make things fair. You beat me in Texas, and you granted me my rematch in Seattle. So I’m granting you your rematch in Ohio. But I want it under one condition: No Holds Barred.” Samoa Joe told the “Little Dead Boy” that Joe is “coming to take back what’s mine. The King will not be usurped by a man like you.” Darby says if he walks out the winner, Joe doesn’t get another rematch. If Joe walks out the winner, Darby won’t get a rematch. This will be the final chapter of their feud! So who writes their happily ever after?

 

Backstage interview with Jamie Hayter, The Bunny, The Butcher & The Blade.

Renee Paquette is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as the mercenary trio. Renee thanks them for agreeing to no physicality, and understands that Allie the Bunny requested this time. Bunny tells Hayter, they’re all very impressed by Hayter’s win over Emi Sakura on Rampage last Friday. Now, Bunny feels like Sakura outshined Hayter, but great win nonetheless. And Bunny knows Hayter isn’t the type to back down from a challenge, right? Right. So here’s a challenge: next week on Dynamite, Hayter VS Bunny in a Title Eliminator Match! What does Hayter say? Hayter says absolutely! She bloody loves a challenge, and next week, she’s free.

Renee says there’s something happening as we speak! They get it on the television screen nearby, and it’s Britt Baker being mugged by Saraya and Toni Storm!! Bunny is shocked and Hayter is furious! Hayter hurries off, Saraya talks right into the camera, “AEW is OUR house!” Storm drags Britt up to RAM her into a garage door! Bunny more or less expresses exasperation, but will Hayter be able to save the Doctor?

 

The Acclaimed w/ Billy Gunn VS Truth Magnum & Turbo Floyd!

The AEW World Tag Team Champions have been reigning for 133 days, but they know the Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten, are gunning for them. But first, they tune up against “The Outrunners.” As always, Platinum Max has a diss track ready! “Acclaimed on the mic, you know we the nicest. Fighting two guys in their midlife crisis! I bet you have sex with each other. How we gonna fight the bootleg Beverly Brothers? C’mon, it’s not the 80s! Acclaimed gonna make you call it quits like you Tom Brady! ‘Ey, y’all should be ashamed. In Ohio, everybody loves The Acclaimed.”

Fans cheer, and Bowens gets the mic to say, “NNNUTTER CENTERRR~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS!” And he does~! But while Caster & Bowens just embarrassed Truth & Turbo, are they walking into a trap game before taking on the Ass Boys?

The teams sort out, the Outrunners decide they’ll scissor finger! They mock the Mega Powers at the same time, but then Bowens SUPERKICKS Truth out of the ring! The bell rings, Caster CHOPS Turbo and scoops him to SLAM him! Tag to Bowens and Bowens goes up top! Caster holds open the legs, SCISSOR ME TURBO! Daddy Ass gets in the ring so that he and the boys can TRIPLE SCISSOR~! Bowens waits on Turbo, mule kicks and hits the ARRIVAL! Tag to Caster and he goes up top, MIC DROP! Cover, The Acclaimed win!

Winners: The Acclaimed, by pinfall

But wait! Raining on the parade are Austin & Colten! Fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” But they tune that out. They go to the ring, and Colten has a mic. “Hey, good match, guys. But we’re here to talk about something serious. Last week, what we said would make us happy are your belts. And we want a shot at those belts, and we want an answer right now.” Fans boo but Caster has the mic to say, “Yo! Yo! Yo! Yo! Listen.” Bowens says, “You two Rod ‘n’ Todd lookin’ asses want an answer. You do realize you are interrupting the most popular tag team in all of wrestling, right?” Caster adds, “That’s right!”

“The winningest tag team in AEW history!” “That’s right!” “The FOREVER champs, the Acclaimed!” “That’s right!” “And not to mention, EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED!” But they are the People’s Choice, and the People’s Voice, they will ask the people. Colten says these fans can’t even read! But Bowens still asks Dayton’s opinion: Do the Ass Boys deserve a shot at the tag titles? “NOOO~!” Well, the people have spoken, so NO. Austin & Colten get in Caster’s & Bowens’ faces, but Billy tells them all to stop! Isn’t it enough already? Billy is so sick of this, he is just done! Billy says this is too much, so go ahead, beat the sh*t out of each other!

Daddy Ass steps aside, fans fire up, but Austin says, “There you go. Do exactly what you did our entire childhoods and turn your back on us.” Billy stops walking up the ramp, but then chuckles as he keeps going. Austin says Billy should do what he used to do, and drown his sorrows at the bottom of a PILL BOTTLE! That gets Billy to turn around! Billy storms up on his sons and The Acclaimed, as well as the fans, tell the Ass Boys that they F’d up. Billy is up in Austin’s face and says, “So you two think you just put your big boy pants on? Then you just step up, and you just made the biggest mistake…”

The mic is wonky so Billy throws it down. Bowens gives Billy the good one. Billy wants Austin to look at him after what he just said. Austin looks up at his father’s eyes. Billy says if they’ve got their big boy pants on, if they think they got what it takes, if they think they have what Billy had, then we’ll see next week. They’ve got their title shots! The Acclaimed is surprised but the Ass Boys smile that they’re getting their way. Will Austin & Colten get what they want? Or just what they deserve?

 

Backstage interview with Jack Perry.

Alex Marvez is with Jungle Boy and notes that he and Hook are 2-0 as a team, having beaten The Firm’s Ethan Page & Matt Hardy. The question is: What’s next for #JungleHook? JB says that he had an amazing time teaming with Hook, and Hook has had JB’s back when no one else did. But JB’s done the tag team thing before. In fact, JB has been all the way to the top of that mountain, and fallen all the way down. But this year isn’t about that. What JB will say is that he’ll be a champion again, but all by himself. Then just what title will Jack Perry aim for in this Tarzan Life?

Backstage interview with the Jericho Appreciation Society.

Renee is with Matthew Menard, Angelo Parker, Daniel Garcia, Sammy Guevara, and of course, Chris Jericho himself. Renee says that we heard Ricky Starks’ comments from last week, addressing how the JAS cheated to win. What is their reaction? Jericho says, “Cheated? We haven’t worked together in five years, and you’re accusing us of cheating? Let me say this, Renee. Ricky Starks, he didn’t lose to a baseball bat, no. Did you see a baseball bat in there?” Of course the JAS says no. Jericho says Starks lost to the JAS. And now Starks challenges them, “How can I get another match with Chris Jericho?”

Jericho says the JAS has an idea how Starks can do that. Right, Sammy? Sammy says yes. Garcia and Sammy put their heads together, and they came up with a great idea: The Guevara-Garcia… No, wait, the Garcia-Guevara Gauntlet! Danny thanks Sammy for the top billing on that name. Renee asks what kind of gauntlet they have in mind. Garcia says it’s a rather simple concept. “Ricky, first you’re gonna have to beat Cool Hand Ange. And if that happens, you’re gonna have to beat Daddy Magic.” Menard adds, “Beat Daddy Magic? I DON’T THINK SO!” Garcia says that if Starks somehow does that, then he beats either Garcia or Guevara, but they’ll reveal that the night of.

And then, if somehow, by the skin of his teeth, Starks makes it past all that, only then does Starks get his hands on Jericho. Jericho tells Starks, “You don’t call the shots around here, the Jericho Appreciation Society does. So if you can get through the Garcia-Guevara Gauntlet, I’ll be ready to rip your ass!” Will the Absolute survive three matches in one go to finally have another shot at The Ocho?

 

The Elite speak.

Matt Jackson asks Brandon Cutler if the camera is rolling as he, brother Nick, Kenny Omega, Michael Nakazawa and Don Callis are on the basketball court. Cutler says yes, they’re live, while Nakazawa and Callis are oiling Omega up. Matt says, “Ladies and gentlemen, check it out who it is! It’s the first-ever, two-time Trios Champions, The Elite.” Omega says that’s right, and he tells Top Flight, “I watched what you guys did. After a Best of 7 Series in a ladder match, you got one up on our boys. Well how ’bout next week, you bring your friend, AR Fox, next week and we’ll put these belts on the line, and you guys can shoot your shot.

“But hey, when you shoot that shot, you best not miss. Because The Elite never miss. Nick, if you will.” Nick takes the rock and shoots it, THREE POINTER! Oh, but wait! The Firm’s Stokely Hathaway, Ethan Page, Matt Hardy & Isiah Kassidy walk in. Callis has Cutler keep rolling, and Omega mockingly asks where Stokely is, he can’t see him. Oh haha, Stokely knows you see him, he’s right here. But listen, you three are doing NOTHING all week? No wrestling, nothing? Just a week off? Ethan thinks that’s funny. The Firm’s employees don’t have that luxury, they work every single week, and Ethan wants that streak to continue.

So Ethan says how about this: The Elite VS Ethan, Matt & “Zay,” Friday on Rampage. Omega tells Callis he isn’t so sure, but Callis says this is Matt Hardy. If they get footage of Hardy taking a One Winged Angel, they could sell that NFT for a lot of money. Hardy says, “What about an NFT with Matt Hardy Twist-Of-Fating Omega?” Ethan likes that better! Well, as far as a match, it’s done. The Elite VS The Whatever They Are. Kassidy says he hopes the Elite is ready, cuz they sure are. Kassidy unsettles Kenny with an arm around his shoulders and a moan, and Ethan says this is good business. Hey, Brandon, is it? Cut the camera!

Matt Jackson tells Ethan Page that he doesn’t tell Brandon what to do! THEY tell him! Turn off the camera, ya damn dumbass! And get off the court, they’re trying to play. But will this 3v3 pick-up game go The Elite’s way? Or is it a trap game before taking on Fox, Dante & Darius?

In the American Dragon’s quest to be #1 contender, he has defeated Tony Nese, Konosuke Takeshita, Bandido and Brian Cage, an undefeated streak of 4-0 in 2023!

Swerve Strickland says, “It’s been a real relaxing last couple of weeks for Swerve and the Mogul Affiliates and all, since getting rid of some dead weight and all this. Until I was like, retriggered.” Dustin Rhodes returning to stand in front of Swerve’s camera, in front of Swerve’s lights, and with Swerve’s interviewer! “The Rhodes Family legacy really gets under my skin, with your father, Dusty Rhodes, giving Keith Lee the ‘Limitless’ moniker. So, since he’s not here, Dustin’s not here, either, let’s find some other nepotism, second generation punk boy to get rid of Friday night on Rampage. That means you, Brian Pillman. Ain’t that right, Parker?”

Parker Boudreaux says that’s right. “Ain’t that right, Trench?” The tattooed man says, “Yeah, that’s right.” Hoodies up, but will they put Bulletproof BPJ down?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

February 8th, the deadline for Bryan Danielson becoming #1 contender, will see The American Dragon taking on La Faccion Ingobernable’s El Toro Blanco, RUSH!! And speaking of…

Backstage interview with LFI.

Lexi Nair is with El Toro Blanco, but also Jose the Assistant and “Perro Peligroso,” Preston Vance. She notes the announcement of Rush VS Bryan, but then there’s a knock at the door. MJF walks in and says, “Hola, mi hermanos! Senor Vance, Senor Jose, Senor Rrrrrush.” Rush asks what the hell this “perro” wants. MJF double checks, “perro” is dog, right? Well, there’s a little thing called personal space, so he’s just gonna take a step back. “But here’s the deal: my, uh, Spanish is come se dice… Mid. But I know one language, my friend, that is mucho, mucho universal.” And that is MONEY! A huge briefcase full of it!

MJF snaps the case shut and smiles. This first one is free of charge. But he has FIVE MORE filled to the brim with dinero. All Rush has to do is beat Bryan Danielson “by any means necessary.” All Rush needs to do is rip Bryan’s arm off and beat him over the head with it. Can Rush pull that off for him? Jose, translate. Jose translates, but Rush seems to understand explicitly. Rush tells MJF in Spanish, and MJF asks “dipsh*t” Jose to translate. Jose sums it up by saying they have a deal. Oh, is that right? That sounded a bit longer than that. But Rush, you don’t have to like MJF. He just has to get the job done. Pleasure doing business with you, perro.

MJF leaves, but Rush has his mission. Will Rush be raking in the money with one match? Or will nothing stop Bryan Danielson from earning his title match?

 

AEW TBS Championship: Jade Cargill w/ Leila Grey VS Red Velvet!

Finally, the biggest, fastest-rising star has reached her FIFTIETH match! But while the streak started with The Chef, will it end with her, too? Or will #ThatBitch not be stopped by even the person who knows her best?

The introductions are made, but Velvet attacks while Jade is strutting around! The bell rings, Velvet fires off forearms but Jade knees her low. Jade whips Velvet to a corner but Velvet boots her back! THESZ PRESS! Velvet rains down hands but Jade shoves her away. Velvet ducks but runs into an elbow!

Fans fire up while Jade drags Velvet over to a cover, TWO! Velvet is toughing it out but Jade is getting frustrated. Jade scoops Velvet to SLAM her, then drops a BIG elbow! Cover, TWO, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Leila is annoyed and Jade frowns while Velvet sputters. Jade drags Velvet up, CLUBS her down, and Leila applauds. Jade bumps Velvet off top buckles, then middle buckles, then bottom buckles! Jade stands on Velvet in the corner and soaks up the cheers and jeers, but lets off at 4. Jade and the ref argue, but Leila gets cheap shots in! Leila scurries away and Jade hauls Velvet up for a FALL AWAY SLAM! And then kips up! Jade holds up both hands to say 50, and then flexes. Velvet bails out, Leila talks trash, and Jade storms over. Jade walks up but Velvet sends her into railing! Jade is getting mad, but Velvet avoids one haymaker to PENALTY KICK from the apron!

Velvet CROSSBODIES, but Jade catches her! Jade POSTS Velvet, then carries her around the way. Jade trophy lifts Velvet, goes up the steel steps, and then TOSSES Velvet at the ropes! Velvet falls, Jade covers, TWO!!! Velvet survives and Jade is getting real mad. Leila rallies the Baddie cheering section, and Jade stalks Velvet to a corner. Jade drags Velvet up, and TOSSES her across the way! Jade says that’s 50 right there, and then she does push-ups as Dynamite returns to single picture. But Velvet CHOPS!

Kiera Hogan RAMS Leila into steel steps! The other former Baddie is here, but other refs come out to have her leave. This all distracts Jade, and Velvet rolls her up! Jade rolls through, but the STIR IT UP hits!! Cover, but the refs aren’t paying attention!! Fans count, Velvet would’ve won twice over by now! Aubrey Edwards finally notices and counts, TWO!! Jade survives and fans can’t believe it!!

Velvet is furious, she drags Jade around and hooks an arm, short arm scissor, and then the INVERSION! Jade endures, fights, but Velvet kicks at her! Jade endures as Velvet pulls on the arm, and she deadlifts Velvet! But Velvet sunset flips! Jade stays up, drags Velvet up with both hands, and pops her around! Chicken wings for JADED!!! Cover, Jade wins!!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

FIFTY AND OH! Velvet came the closest of all, but will anyone ever stop Jade’s undefeated streak?

 

Backstage interview with Britt Baker.

Renee is with The Doctor, as well as Jamie Hayter, as they are with Doc Sampson. We only caught a glimpse of what happened to her earlier at the hands of Saraya & Storm, how is Britt feeling? Britt says this is fine. She’s fine, and if that’s how Storm & Saraya wanna play, that’s fine, too. Because Britt & Hayter can play that game, too. But wait, in walks Ruby Soho! Ruby just wants to talk. She heard what happened, is Britt good? Uh, Ruby, weren’t those your girls? Ruby has Britt hold on there. Ruby has nothing to do with Saraya & Storm, she doesn’t know what Britt’s talking about.

Britt says Ruby’s known Saraya & Storm a lot longer than she’s known the AEW originals, so sorry if it’s strange that Ruby only now shows up. But yeah, Britt is good. Hayter says Britt is great, actually. Ruby says she’s glad to hear it and walks off. There are battle lines being drawn, which side is the Runaway on?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

Not only are The Elite and The Firm having it out, it is for the AEW World Trios Championships! Will Kenny & The Young Bucks make it through All Ego, Hardy & Kassidy to then take on Fox & Top Flight? Or will there be a change of plans for Dynamite? And speaking of Saraya & Storm, they are in tag team action once again, but will they continue to beat down All Elite homegrown talent? Plus, before taking on Bryan Danielson, Rush will take on the Fallen Angel, Christopher Daniels, in an epic match of former ROH World Heavyweight Champions! Will El Toro Blanco build momentum going into his battle with The American Dragon?

 

AEW TNT Championship No Holds Barred: Darby Allin w/ Sting VS Samoa Joe!

The series is tied at 1-1, with the Samoan Submission Specialist winning in Texas, but the Relentless One winning in his hometown of Seattle. Dynamite in Dayton is throwing out all the rules except one: win! Will Darby continue to be the fighting champion? Or will Joe return to being the One True King of Wrestling Television?

The introductions are made, the TNT title is raised, and one way or another, this is the series finale of Darby VS Joe!

Darby takes off his trench coat to reveal he, uh, customized his Hoodlum hoodie. He’s covered it in thumbtacks!! And as soon as he’s in the ring, he rushes in to COFFIN SPLASH Joe! Joe is reeling from the tack attack but Darby fires off tack-covered forearms! Fans fire up as Darby runs corner to corner, but Joe dodges the splash to GAMANGIRI!

Darby goes to a corner, but Darby kicks back. Joe stomps Darby, stomps him down, then storms off.

Joe goes out to look under the ring, and he brings out a TABLE! Dayton fires up, Joe picks the table up, but Darby DIVES into the table and Joe! The table doesn’t break but it, Joe and Darby all hit the floor! Joe is busted open on his forehead and fans fire up! Darby hurries to stand the table up, to then drop it on Joe! Darby then brings the steel steps around into the corner of the railing. Darby whips, Joe reverses, and Darby not only clips steel steps, he clips railing! Darby lands on his feet just from momentum, but he soon falls to his knees, clutching his back! Fans lose their minds while Joe stalks out after Darby.

Joe stands Darby up, throws knees into him, and then throws him into railing. Joe drags Darby up and they go up the bleachers. Joe SMACKS Darby off the handrail, then brings him up further. Joe smacks Darby off more railing, then keeps him going up. But Darby fights back! Darby CLUBS and CLAWS Joe’s back! Fans fire up but Joe DUMPS Darby down the steps! Fans are going nuts while Joe glares through his crimson mask, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Joe drags Darby up again, grinds him against the handrail, then SMACKS him off a fan’s chair! They go back to the lower level as Darby kicks Joe and crawls away. Joe keeps after Darby, drags him up, and brings him around the way to TOSS back to ringside! Darby narrowly misses hitting steel steps head first! Joe stalks Darby, drags Darby back up, then scoop SLAMS him on the steps! Darby writhes, flounders away, but Joe follows him to the corner. Darby throws Joe’s ROH World TV title at him, but that only upsets Joe. Joe storms in after Darby, stalks him to a corner, and waits on Darby to stand before he DECKS him!

Joe eggs Darby on as he stands over him. Darby doesn’t stand so Joe makes him. Joe snapmares to CHOP Darby on the back! And PENALTY KICK him in the chest! And then drops a fist on his head! Joe watches Darby writhe and the ref checks on him. Joe grins through the crimson mask, then stomps Darby down. Joe kicks Darby, then clamps on a neck wrench!

Joe clamps the neck wrench back on and he twists even harder! Darby endures, and Dynamite returns to single picture as Darby throws more body shots.

Joe lets go of the neck wrench, Darby hobbles and runs, but into an ELBOW! Darby falls over and Joe covers, TWO! Joe keeps focus as he looms over Darby. Joe KICKS Darby to a corner, and then stomps him. Fans rally and duel, but Joe is annoyed by that. Joe drags Darby up, DECKS him with a forearm, then clamps on another neck wrench! It’s practically a vice on Darby’s head, squeezing his skull! Darby endures, fights up, and he RAMS Joe into buckles! Darby fires off forearms and SLAPS! Darby runs corner to corner, but into the URENAGE! Cover, TWO!! Darby survives the #STJOE, but Joe stands Darby up to CHOP him!

Darby staggers, Joe CHOPS him again! Darby flops to the apron, Joe builds speed and he BOOTS Darby to the floor! Joe then storms out and looks under the ring. Joe brings out another TABLE! Fans fire up again but Joe has fans move aside. Fans oblige and Joe rests the table against railing. Darby is in the ring, Joe goes in and brings Darby up, but Darby JAWBREAKERS before the sleeper could lock in! Darby runs in at the corner to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Darby CHOPS away on Joe, but Joe TOSSES Darby right out of the ring! Joe has been treating Darby like a throw pillow, emphasis on the “throw!”

Fans fire up as they’re back to back to make a wedge! Joe stands Darby up, brings him over, BIG back suplex on the chair wedge!! Darby writhes and Joe has a sadistic smile. “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” Joe turns the chairs around to face each other, then brings Darby back up. But Darby uses POCKET SAND to stop the bomb! CODE RED!! Cover, TWO!! Joe survives but Darby hurries to hop on! THROWBACK STUNNER!

Joe falls into a drop zone, and Darby hurries to get his hoodie back! Darby puts that back on, climbs up the corner, and COFFIN DROPS!! Cover, TWO!?!? Joe survives the tack-enhanced senton and fans can’t believe it! Darby hurries outside and goes looking. Darby uses a knife to cut the strings that hold down the canvas! Some are tough but they all give way, and Darby pulls the canvas away. Darby then drags off the foam padding to expose bare wood! Darby is deconstructing the ring in order to better destroy Joe! Darby sees Joe outside, builds speed and DIVES, but Joe walks away! Darby CRASHES THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

Dayton is losing their minds as Joe puts Darby back in! Joe sets Darby’s tack covered jacket down, he picks Darby up, and he POWERBOMBS him on the tacks! AND THEN HE SMOTHERS DARBY WITH THE TACK JACKET!! Darby DIGS at Joe’s eyes!! Joe lets Darby go, but he staggers around blindly! Joe stands up into a CHAIR SHOT! And another! And another! Darby has Joe on the hard wood, climbs up top, but Joe pushes the ref into the ropes to trip Darby up!! Joe climbs up after Darby, tucks him in, and hits a SUPER MUSCLE BUSTER TO THE WOOD!!!! Cover, JOE WINS!!!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by pinfall (NEW AEW TNT Champion)

Darby’s relentless streak is over! Samoa Joe is now a TWO-TIME TWO BELT CHAMPION! But wait! “THIS IS WAAAR~!” Fans go nuts for Wardlow as he storms down to the ring! Joe is just as shocked as Wardlow runs in! SPEAR!! Wardlow rains down fists on the man who took his title and his top knot! Wardlow rips his shirt off, drags Joe up, but Joe scrambles away! Fans boo but Joe isn’t going to fight again so soon after the war he just went through. Security rushes out but Wardlow CLOBBERS them all! Then he hauls one up to POWERBOMB out onto all the others!! Wardlow will not be denied, when and where will he get his hands on Joe?


My Thoughts:

This was an awesome Dynamite! Same balance of action and talking, but the action was all on a different level this week. Of the talking, we got good stuff out of this AEW Originals VS Imports in the Women’s Division. Saraya & Storm really up their Heel heat by just attacking Britt unprovoked, and then Ruby checking in on Britt was an interesting turnaround from her telling she didn’t want Britt’s help. But we’re getting closer and closer to that big tag(?) match. Hell, make it a Blood & Guts match but with the women rather than the men. Saraya leads a team, Britt leads a team, Ruby will choose Britt’s side and there could even be a twist of Shida betraying Saraya during the match to cost the anti-AEW team.

Good promo from the JAS to set up things with Starks. I just knew Starks would have to beat everyone in the JAS eventually, so it’s clever for them to get it all done in one gauntlet match. Starks will of course make it past Menard and Parker, and I bet that just as it looks like Garcia is stepping up to face Starks, Guevara takes the spotlight from him. Starks will still get through the final opponent, and he’ll get his match with Jericho. Good promo from Mogul Affiliates, because one: it establishes that their group doesn’t like multigenerational wrestlers, and two: it gave Granden Goetzman his wrestler name, “Trench.” Swerve will surely beat BPJ, but I bet Dustin teams up with BPJ and Brock Anderson as a sort of AEW take on WWE’s Legacy faction to take on Mogul Affiliates.

Good promo from Jack Perry, but I’m surprised he waited until now to establish that he’s done with tag teams. But I suppose he’s done with The Firm, too, so he’s done needing reinforcements. As it stands, if he wants a singles title, he could start with the All-Atlantic Championship, but I could see JB making a move for THE AEW World title. Speaking of The Firm, good promo from them and The Elite. I wonder if this was really live or just the take where Nick actually made that shot. Anyway, I’m also surprised the trios match for Rampage is for the titles when the titles are going to be on the line for Dynamite. But I suppose if Orange Cassidy and Darby Allin are fighting champions, then so should the Elite. Which of course means The Elite win on Rampage to go on to face Fox & Flight.

We got an awesome match from Bryan VS Thatcher, but of course Bryan wins to keep his story going. Even after he had that awesome match with Brian Cage, Konosuke going after MJF was a great move. And getting himself an Eliminator match is a good, too, but I feel like MJF finds a way to stand tall. He’ll either cheat to win, or just get himself disqualified quickly so his night will be over quickly. MJF also had a really good promo with LFI. Rush is a great choice to take on Bryan Danielson, and Rush is also going to have a great match with Christopher Daniels on Rampage. I’m sure Bryan will still find a way to win and we’ll still get that Ironman match, it just has to be how this goes.

It’s mostly because I don’t even know who is the #2 contender, since AEW still hasn’t kept up with rankings in this new year. AEW bringing out a sudden twist of MJF still having that One Hour Ironman match against someone other than Bryan would be great stuff, since MJF has been so focused on Bryan, but I feel like getting MJF VS Bryan is still the thing everyone wants to see. Great opening match out of Hangman VS Moxley, and of course Moxley bleeds. It’s practically in his contract. But Hangman losing by a roll-up was a great surprise, and them still being after each other after, this has to continue until Revolution.

The Acclaimed winning a squash was a bit surprising, but obviously that was to make room for the promo that set up things with The Gunn Sons. But Billy suddenly saying his sons can have a title match with The Acclaimed? I hope there isn’t a turn coming where Billy is suddenly on his sons’ side again. It just feels like something is fishy, but who knows. Really good TBS title match from Jade and Velvet, but I guess since this wasn’t at a PPV, Jade wasn’t about to lose. Kiera trying to help Velvet only to mess things up was at least a good detail to protect Jade. But at this rate, who is even going to beat Jade when she’s gotten through even some great established names.

And of course, an awesome No Holds Barred match for the TNT title. Great innovation, such as Darby’s tack covered jacket and the different table spots. I was actually rather surprised to see Joe win this to once again be dual champion. But at the same time, Wardlow returning to continue his story with Joe is a logical reason as to why Joe needs to have the TNT title again. Perhaps Wardlow gets the TNT title back to have a second chance with that, and Darby can move up into the world title scene. And assuming MJF retains at Revolution, it works for Darby to be next as they have history in AEW.

My Score: 9/10

AEW Coverage

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (1/31/23)

Orlando stays Dark!

Published

on

Universal Studios is still the AEW Dark Arena!

As they prepare to go after the AEW World Trios Championships, AR Fox & Top Flight reunite to take on The Wingmen: Peter Avalon, Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: AR Fox & Top Flight VS The Wingmen; Fox & Top Flight win.
  • Red Velvet VS Sofia Castillo; Velvet wins.
  • Zack Clayton VS Fulton; Clayton wins.
  • Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. w/ Arn Anderson VS Rosario Grillo & Dean Alexander; Anderson & Pillman win.
  • Skye Blue VS Renee Michelle; Skye wins.
  • Shane Taylor Promotions VS Mr. G & Dante Casanova; Shane Taylor Promotions wins.
  • Yuka Sakazaki VS Avery Breaux; Yuka wins.
  • The Workhorsemen VS Liam Gray & Adrian Alanis; The Workhorsemen win.
  • Angelico w/ Serpentico & Luther VS Konosuke Takeshita; Konosuke wins.

QUICK NOTES

A solid line-up, and I like that we’re getting to see Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. in action together after a backstage promo on Elevation not too long ago. Not sure what the team name is but two second generation stars together is a logical combination. Angelico VS Konosuke, that is going to be a great match, but I give the win to Konosuke. Red Velvet is in action again after also being on Elevation, she’s definitely building momentum towards taking on Jade Cargill for Jade’s 50th match. And good to see Shane Taylor Promotions in action here. They’ll be a strong part of the ROH Tag Team Division, even after having lost to Keith Lee after Swerve abandoned Keith.

And good to see AR Fox & Top Flight in action, and against The Wingmen. For one, good to see Avalon, Nemeth & Bononi teaming all together again. And this will be a good match to build momentum for Fox & Flight.
