The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and it’s a hot start to Winter is Coming!

MI-” Nick blocks it! Penta trips Nick, things speed up, Penta hooks Nick to bring him up into a headlock. Nick powers out, hurdles, rolls, but Penta leaps over.

Winners: Death Triangle, by submission (the series is now 3-1 in favor of Death Triangle)

Nakazawa protests, but the ref didn’t see the hammer so he can’t factor it in! With this win, and the damage done to Nick’s foot, is this series all but done? Or can The Elite fight through the pain to come back three-in-a-row?

Wait, Omega gets on the mic! Omega has the music stop, and says, “There’s going to be enough talking in this show as there is, so what I’m about to say, it’s not for you guys.” It’s not for the people at home or the fans here. This is for Death Triangle and he wants to make sure they hear it. Anyone who knows sports, a 3-1 deficit is pretty bad. Every single match that Death Triangle won was when they used a hammer. Cute. But how about the next match, Death Triangle’s match point, how about we make the hammer legal? Omega can’t lie, he isn’t one to lay down hammers, so let’s not just make the hammer legal, let’s make all weapons legal!

The Elite is sick of playing by Death Triangle’s rules, so let’s make it so there are no rules at all! Omega wants match five to be NO DISQUALIFICATIONS!!! But he won’t just make the decision himself. He wants everyone to have a say. What do the fans want? They are fired up! Well then, back to regularly scheduled programming, as Omega was not formatted to say this. But for now, he bids you adieu. Good-bye, mwah! And good! Night! BANG!! Omega has raised the stakes as we go into the Holiday Bash, will match five be the end of it all? Or will it be just the beginning of a truly extreme comeback story?


Backstage interview with MJF.

Alex Marvez is with the AEW World Champion to get his thoughts on tonight’s massive main event. MJF VS Ricky Starks, for both the Dynamite Diamond Ring, and the “biggest prize in all of professional wrestling, the AEW World title.” MJF applauds Starks for finally cutting his first great “oratory expedition!” MJF knows everyone is rooting for Starks. They all see the great potential in Starks. Do you know what they’re calling last week, Marvez? “A star-making performance!” Isn’t that cute? But do you know what? The first time MJF ever appeared on Dynamite, he was already a star! And after that, he just hit homerun after homerun, and is batting a thousand!

MJF is just curious, though. How many at-bats did Ricky have before he hit the homer? Oops. Well, then Starks got the people claiming Starks made himself a star, when that couldn’t be further from the truth, “Richard.” MJF is the one who made himself a star! Because at 26 years old, he is the most talked about name in this business! He is a star maker, so you’re welcome for the rub, “Rick.” MJF figured Starks would talk about his rough upbringing. “Oh~, I had it so hard~! I grew up poor, I had to leave and move into the dumpster fire known as Texas! I grew up with a bobblehead that was so much bigger than my body! I had to live out of my car and eat out of dumpsters with raccoons! WAH~!

“I don’t care! None of that matters! The only thing in his lifetime that matters is are you or aren’t you the AEW World Heavyweight Champion? And of course, the smooth brained simpletons at watching home love you, Ricky. It’s because they relate to you. Because much like you, their lives suck! But instead of fixing it, all they do is whine and moan and complain. ‘Why me? Why me?’ It’s because you all suck!!” And then there’s MJF. Starks says MJF had it easy. Guess what? He was right! He grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth! He was born rich, handsome, funny, witty, pretty, and better than you and every single putrid person on this planet and MJF isn’t apologizing for it!

And then, Starks wants to talk about taking pressure off MJF’s plate. Granted, it took Starks a minute to get to his point, he was meandering and mumbling for about seven minutes, and every time he got lost, he’d just go, “GiMmE a BwEaK~!” How about you give MJF a break! Pressure? MJF is under none. He is already “the guy.” He already has the Dynamite Diamond Ring AND AEW World Championship. Everyone hates his guts, everyone wants to see his downfall, and no one is rooting for him, so he has no one to let down. But Starks, ooh… Ricky Starks, MJF does not envy you even a little bit!

Everyone around the world wants to see Starks win the big one! Starks’ mom, family, friends, fans, GOD wants Starks to win the big one in his adopted home state of Texas! But can Starks do it?! Or will he let everyone down? Now that is pressure. And tonight, we see what happens when pressure is applied to The Pebble. Will he become the diamond everyone claims him to be? Or will he simply turn into dust? MJF looks to test The Absolute, but will he end up absolutely devastated?


The Acclaimed is here!

Fans fire up as the AEW World Tag Team Champions and Billy Gunn head to the ring! And of course, Max Caster has a rap on deck! “Acclaimed in the house, if you need a reminder, we brought the belts back like Brittney Griner! All the fans agree on us. Other teams getting booed like they’re Elon Musk! The world champs, who can stop it?” Wait, Satnam Singh just CLOBBERS Billy on stage! Jay Lethal & Sonjay Dutt blindside Caster & Bowens! Fans boo as Sonjay kicks Caster around while Satnam drags Billy down the ramp with a headlock. Jeff Jarrett struts out, guitar held high, and he goes to the ring.

Satnam sends Billy into steel steps, Lethal sends Bowens over the timekeeper’s table! Satnam puts Caster in the ring but Caster DECKS Sonjay! Lethal DECKS Caster, then stomps him down! Fans boo as Team Double Jay all gather to mug Caster! Jarrett has his guitar, for a SMASH HIT!! Caster goes down and Jarrett gets the mic. “Yo! Yo, yo, Acclaimed!” Fans cuss Jarrett out, but Jarrett asks if they have The Acclaimed’s attention now! “Hey, you little bitch! Why don’t you scissor this, Slap Nuts?” Jarrett drops the title belts onto Caster, and laughs as he and his team raise their hands in victory. Will Jay & Double J take those titles from Caster & Bowens?


Backstage interview with the Jericho Appreciation Society.

Tony Schiavone is with Chris Jericho, Daniel Garcia, Jake Hager, Angelo Parker and Sammy Guevara. He notes that Jericho is the now former ROH World Champion, after tapping out to Claudio Castagnoli’s Giant Swing. Jericho says Schiavone must love that, huh? Schiavone says he’s just stating facts. Well then let Jericho state some facts! “The Giant Swing is barbaric!” Parker says it is inhumane! Jericho says that move should be BANNED! And Jericho will take his frustrations out on some jobber in a tune-up match as he prepares for a rematch with Claudio to regain the ROH World Championship! He is still the OCHO!

Claudio as champion is just as much a flash in the pan as Joe Exotic or Ricky Starks. Schiavone does have to point out that Daniel Garcia lost his ROH Pure Championship to Wheeler Yuta. Garcia says when it comes to- Jericho stops Garcia there to say it himself: Garcia should’ve never lost that title. Garcia is better than that, but it’s okay. Garcia just needs a little bit of advice and mentorship and experience. From now on, Garcia can shadow his elder, Sammy Guevara, and do whatever Sammy says. Sammy says, “That’s right, little buddy! And you can start that this Friday on Rampage. Because while this stuff with the JAS and the BCC is over, it’s not for me and Jon Moxley!”

Sammy keeps Garcia close with a shoulder hug as he promises Moxley that he will kick Moxley’s ass! Moxley punched Sammy in his face so Sammy will knock Moxley out! Sammy’s wife, Tay Melo, kicks Ruby Soho’s ass tonight! Big matches coming up, and Hager shouts, “I LIKE THIS HAT!” Will things truly, truly be over between the Jericho Appreciation Society and Blackpool Combat Club after these next rematches?


Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry!

From fighting Luchasaurus in a steel cage to facing The Machine called Cage! Will Jungle Boy Jack make it through to the holidays next week? Or will one third of the NEW ROH World  Six Man Tag Team Champions get payback from the Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal?

The bell rings and Cage swings, but JB wrenches and CHOPS! And CHOPS! JB goes up and up and springboards, but Cage blocks the arm-drag! Cage whips, JB ducks ‘n’ dodges but his shoulder tackle bounces off Cage! Cage taunts the fans, runs, but JB drops then hurdles. Cage catches JB to a fireman’s carry, but JB pops up to RANA Cage to a corner! JB runs in but is put on the apron. JB GAMANGIRIS, goes up top, and JB FLYING RANAS! Cage stagger sup into a DROPKICK! Fans fire up as JB kips up, but he winces from the pain in his neck. Makes sense, “Big Bill” Morrissey did choke slam him against the apron.

But JB shakes out the arms, runs corner to corner, but Cage picks JB up! Cage RAMS JB into the corner, then CHOPS! Cage drags JB up to whip him corner to corner, then he runs in. JB slips out, ducks the punches but Cage blocks the kick to ROCK and KICK JB! Cage climbs up the corner, and he deadlifts JB into the SUPERPLEX! Fans boo but Nana and Cage soak up the heat. Cage flexes, he drags JB up, and Cage scoops JB to use him for bicep curls. Cage TOSSES JB overhead, then asks, “Who betta than Cage?” Fans boo but Cage just struts around as AEW goes picture in picture.

Cage stalks JB to ropes, CHOKES him on the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. Cage drags JB up, ROCKS him with a forearm, and then storms up on JB. JB kicks Cage, and again, but Cage grabs the leg! Cage YANKS JB into a BACKBREAKER! Cage paces, digs his boot in at the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts again. Cage drags JB up but JB throws body shots. Cage HEADBUTTS JB down, then drags him back up. Cage whips JB to ropes, scoops and tilt-o-whirl SIDE SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Cage is annoyed, he looms over JB in the corner, and he taunts the fans. JB CHOPS Cage! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Cage JUMP KNEES JB back down!

Cage CHOKES JB against buckles! The ref counts, Cage lets off, and then he whips JB corner to corner hard! JB bounces off buckles and writhes, but Cage soaks up the heat. Cage even does push-ups to show off! Cage drags JB up from the apron and bends him against the rope to CLUB him in the chest! And again and again! Cage drags JB up to TOSS him back into the ring! Cage then clamps on with a chinlock and he leans on the hold. JB endures, fights up, throws body shots, but Cage knees him away! AEW returns to single picture, he mockingly applauds, and then runs in, into a BOOT from JB!

JB goes to another corner, Cage runs in but JB dodges! Cage hits buckles, JB ELBOWS Cage away, then CHOPS! And CHOPS! And ROCKS Cage with a forearm! JB whips, Cage reverses, but JB FLYING FOREARMS in return! Cage staggers around and JB runs in again to FLYING FOREARM! Cage stays up but JB roars! Fans fire up and JB runs, but Cage sidesteps, only to take the COMEBACKER! But Cage is still on his feet! Cage deadlifts JB, but JB SATELLITE DDTs Cage down! Nana is freaking out but the fans fire up! JB and Cage stir, they go to opposite corners, and JB runs in at Cage!

Cage dodges, UPPERCUTS, GAMANGIRIS, then GERMAN SUPLEXES! JB flounders, Cage hauls him up into a full nelson, and SWINGS JB into a SLAM! Cover, TWO!!! JB survives and Nana is furious! Cage drags JB back up, reels him in, and slashes his throat. Cage suplexes, but JB turns Drill Claw into a victory roll! TWO!! SUPERKICK from JB staggers Cage! JB runs, but Cage DISCUS LARIATS! And then a fireman’s carry, to the F- DESTROYER?!! JB pulls that one outta nowhere!! Cover, TWO!!! But into the SNARE TRAP!! Nana distracts the ref! Cage is tapping but the ref doesn’t see it! Fans freak out, but JB lets off to swipe at Nana!

Nana shouts at JB, Cage fireman’s carries JB, but JB slips off! JB waistlocks but Cage switches! Cage ripcords but JB ducks, the LARIRAT hits Nana! O’Conner Roll! JB WINS!!

Winner: “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, by pinfall

Fans sing for Jungle Life, and Jack gets the mic! “Hold on a minute! At Full Gear, I beat Luchasaurus. Right now, I beat Brian Cage! Well I want the biggest bitch of them all! So Big Bill, get your punk ass out here!!” Fans fire up and here comes Stokely Hathaway instead. Stokely tells JB that every time he sees JB’s face, “it pisses me off. It pisses me off to the highest level of pisstivity! And if you keep messing around, tonight you’re gonna see two things. One: The bottom of Big Bill’s boot. And number two: the back of my hand. Because you a little ho.” JB storms out of the ring and up to Stokely, but Lee Moriarty runs out to brawl with JB!

Fans fire up as JB gets the edge on #TAIGASTYLE, but here comes Morrissey! He CLUBS JB, CLUBS him more, and now The Firm mugs JB! Stokely says this is the kind of beating he likes: no background music! RIP Newjack. But The Firm drags JB up and whips him into the steel steps! JB writhes and Stokely tells him to stay down. Fans boo but Morrissey drags JB back up. Morrissey puts JB in the ring, Moriarty takes aim from a corner, and he forearm smashes in the corner! Morrissey runs to SPLASH! Choke grip, and SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAM!! Fans boo but wait! Here comes HOOK!! The fans go nuts for the FTW Champion!!

Hook storms to the ring, he knows Moriarty wants him so here he is! But then Morrissey & Moriarty retreat at Stokely’s orders. The Firm will do this on The Firm’s time, but Hook helps JB to his feet! Fans fire up as JB and Hook stand tall! Will we see a new dream team form in order to tear down Taiga Style and the towering Big Bill?


The Blackpool Combat Club speak.

Jon Moxley says, “If you’re a little confused about what’s going on with us, well I’ll keep it real simple. Last week, I said we were gonna make a statement. At Final Battle, my man Wheeler here elbowed Daniel Garcia’s face into oblivion! Claudio here swung a grown man around by his ankles like a child until he wanted to puke and pass out and soil himself, and he begged for mercy. I choked Takeshita unconscious. Like a big sack of potatoes, he fell to the mat, he did. That’s a small statement of what we can do, of what we will do.”

Claudio says that in 2023, they’re putting everyone on notice! Dynamite, Rampage, Dark, Elevation, wherever you want to pick a fight! You think you’re good, you will know the BCC is better! Yuta adds that if there’s one thing Moxley and Claudio have taught him over the past year, it’s that if you wanna win, if you wanna achieve greatness, if you want a title, then you gotta fight like you’re already dead! And Yuta is locked into that mindset. If you wanna come get some, you know where to find them.

Moxley says, “Oh, and one last worm to stomp out from those JAS boys. Sammy Guevara, you are a gutsy kid. So gutsy, in fact, I think you will show up this Friday night on Rampage. And I promise, I will stomp your face into a bloody mess and leave you for dead. That’s what we do. And Hangman Page, I always say, you know where to find me. Bring your little Dark Order buddies, too. Y’know, if you want.” The Maniac, the Swiss Superman & The Decoder are calling out everyone! Will it take everyone to stop the BCC from taking over AEW?


Swerve Strickland speaks.

“It’s funny. The more you give the loved ones, the less they give you back. I’ve given you everything, Keith. From my efforts, from my in-ring skills, to my partnership to my friendship, and you threw it all in my face. Next week in San Antonio, we will have our meeting face-to-face. But you’re not a friend, you’re not a partner, we’re not family. I have no friends, I have no family in this industry. I have affiliates. See you soon.” Swerve ditched Keith Lee at Final Battle, but he didn’t get what he wanted. Will he get what he wants for the holidays? Or just what he deserves?


Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS QT Marshall, Cole Karter & Aaron Solo w/ The Factory!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews made statements of their own when they returned, and then again after the All-Atlantic Championship’s Lumberjack match. Will they continue to demolish everyone in their path back to the top? Or will The Factory avenge that ambush from almost a month ago?

The trios sort out but Comoroto, who isn’t even in the match officially, steps up. But then Julia Hart steps up in return? AEW doesn’t do coed competition, but Comoroto still throws his lollipop stick at her. So Julia SPITS MIST IN RETURN!! Comoroto goes down, and then Brody & Buddy CLOBBER Karter & Solo! QT is stunned, Brody and Buddy go out to keep after Solo and Karter, and Brody even DECKS Big Shotty Lee Johnson! QT isn’t sure what to do as Buddy RAMS Karter into the apron! And then Buddy RAMPS Karter into railing! Brody BOOTS Solo down! Buddy ROCKS Karter, Brody makes Solo take a seat in the corner of the railing.

Fans bark it up while Buddy smacks Karter off the timekeeper’s table. Brody runs in to CROSSBODY Solo into the railing! Johnson tries to help Karter but Buddy gets him for MURPHY’S LAW onto Karter! QT is looking around in a panic as the bell rings, and he’s all alone with Malakai! But then Buddy and Brody flank QT, and Malakai stands up. QT says what the hell, and he rushes up to Malakai, into the BLACK MASS!! Cover, the House of Black wins!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

Statement: made! They vowed to “punish” those who think they are safe. Will all of AEW be sentenced to this kind of brutal punishment?


AEW takes a closer look at Hayter VS Shida.

The Regina di Wave Champion tells Jamie Hayter, “You are a good wrestler. But you are not the one who is a history-maker.” But Hayter tells Shida, “Congratulations. You won the opportunity of a lifetime to wrestle me for this belt, next week on Dynamite. You’re gonna understand that I’m not fun to be in the ring with. It’s all go.” #HayterHitsHard! Shida says she will teach Hayter the real Joshi Strong Style, and will take that AEW Women’s World Champion! Will we see a new era of #TwoBeltsShida? Or will she hate Hayter after their showdown of champions?


Backstage interview with Britt Baker.

Renee Paquette is with The Doctor and Rebel as she brings up the title match. And Britt has Renee stop right there. “Let’s stop acting like Shida beating Jamie is ever gonna be a thing. It’s not a thing, it won’t be a thing ever, so stop trying to make it a thing, got it? In fact, the only thing that Shida is famous for around here is breaking my nose. I defeated Shida for the AEW Women’s World Championship, and Jamie-” Skye Blue walks in and gets Britt’s attention. Okay, how can Britt help her? Britt says the audacity it takes to walk into her interview time is sky high!

Skye says she couldn’t help but hear Britt talking from a mile away. She’s pretty sure the entire AEW roster can hear Britt when she talks. Now, Skye will give Britt credit, she is good at talking. But let’s see if Britt can wrestle as well as she runs that mouth. Skye isn’t doing anything this Friday, and she’s pretty sure Britt isn’t either. So let’s prove it on Rampage! Britt can’t believe that’s Skye Blue. But yes, she will be the Face of the Women’s Division by kicking Skye’s ass! Will the Dentist put her money where her mouth is this Friday?


Chris Jericho VS Action Andretti!

The Wizard is no longer Le Champion, but he swears that he is still #THEOCHO! But then will this match help Jericho get the momentum to become The Nueve? Or will this tune-up be more than what Jericho expected for Winter is Coming?

The bell rings and fans chant “YOU TAPPED OUT!” at Jericho. Jericho flips the fans off but that doesn’t stop them. Jericho and Action circle, and Jericho gets in Action’s face. Jericho SLAPS Action, then taunts him. Jericho SLAPS Action again, then he soaks up the heat. Fans boo but Action SLAPS Jericho back! Jericho ROCKS Action, fires off forearms, then has him in a corner! Jericho stomps away on Action, the ref counts and Jericho stops at 4. Jericho soaks up more heat then goes back to Action. Jericho CHOPS Action, whips him corner to corner, and then clotheslines! And again! And then he digs his fingers into Action’s face!

Fans chant, “Let’s Go, Jobber!” while the ref counts. Jericho backs off, but he storms back up to ROCK Action in the face! Action counter punches to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Jericho BOOTS Action down! Fans boo but Jericho drags Action up. Jericho whips Action into the corner to fire off more clotheslines! The fans count to “OCHO!” but Jericho goes to ten. Jericho snapmares Action, CHOPS him against ropes, then CHOPS again! Jericho whips Action to ropes, CLOBBERS him, then soaks up more heat. Jericho runs but Action keeps up! Action hurdles, but Jericho CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS again!

Jericho whips, Action ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl RANA! Fans fire up for Action, and Action runs to springboard and TWISTING SPLASH! Cover, ONE!! Jericho is pissed now and he CLOBBERS Action! Jericho drags Action up, fireman’s carries, and he hits a DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Fans still rally for Action but Jericho aims. Action staggers up, into a CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!?? Jericho’s cocky grin is now a shocked scowl! Fans are thunderous for Action Andretti as AEW goes picture in picture!

Jericho stares at Action as he crawls to ropes. Fans are still rallying for Action as he drags himself up the ropes, and Jericho storms up after him. Jericho stands Action up, stares him right in the eye, and ROCKS him with forearm after forearm! Jericho fires off more and more, the ref gets the gloves because Action’s got a bloody nose. Jericho drags Action up to throw him out, and then goes out the side. Jericho storms over to Action, stands him up, and RAMS him into steel steps! Action writhes on the floor but Jericho paces. Action clutches an arm and works on the shoulder, but Jericho drags him up and puts him in the ring.

Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.

“I woke up this morning smelling the Lonestar air, knowing exactly that I am the man. Me, Ricky Starks. Tonight, I finally get my shot at the AEW World Championship against ol’ Maxi Pad. And I think it’s pretty fitting that it happens in my backyard. I feel just as prepared as I did the first day that I stepped foot into AEW. And there’s been a long road for me since I’ve been here, and I can acknowledge that. When I had my neck broken and I thought this was the end of it, I sat at home and I made sure that I would stand right here to be the guy to tell you at home, ‘Hey, I’m doing it tonight! I’m winning the AEW Championship, because I have no other options!

“I have grinded! I have paid my dues for the last 11 YEARS, and guess what? All that comes to a head tonight. Max, you wanna talk about a star-making performance? Guess what, last week was nothing new to me! I’ve been doing that in my sleep. I’ve been letting people know who I am since day one. You have to find validation in your stupid ass ratings, and ‘Oh, I’m such a draw!’ Nobody gives a damn, pal. But what they do care about is seeing me, Ricky Starks, stomp your little ass tonight.”

Starks knows he has a lot riding on the line, and he has a lot of people looking up to him. MJF may think of that as a joke, only because he has no one supporting him, no one who actually want to be behind him! But Starks does! Make fun all you want, but Starks is a reflection of what MJF wants to be! From the top of Starks’ head to the bottom of his feet, he IS the man! And after tonight, he proves to MJF and everyone else why Starks is the “coldest MF’er you have ever seen!” Why he is “the most stylish MF’er you have ever seen!” And why he is ABSOLUTELY the AEW World Champion! Ricky Starks, A to Z, remember the name! Because no one else will forget this match.


FTR speaks.

Dax Harwood knows a lot of people are calling FTR VS The Briscoes “the greatest trilogy of all time.” He isn’t so sure, but Saturday night was definitely the hardest match of their careers. As they stood in that ring and got the adulation from the fans, the thousands in attendance, it seems a couple more people wanted their attention, and that’s The Ass Boys, Austin & Colten Gunn. Dax won’t call them “Ass Boys” anymore, they’re just Austin & Colten. Those are their names, and not just stage names. Those are their real names. And they wanna take the shine away from FTR, from Dax & Cash, well that ain’t gonna happen.

Cash Wheeler says Austin & Colten want to “kill” FTR’s legacy. They have done just about everything they can, like costing FTR matches and jumping them after the most grueling match in their careers, the Double Dog Collar match. That was maybe the most vicious match Cash will ever be in for his entire life. But now the Gunns are desperate for attention from someone because they have daddy issues. They want FTR’s attention? Well now they have it, because FTR will kick the Ass Boys’ asses.

Dax said Austin & Colten have tried for months to get FTR’s attention with nothing to offer in return. FTR is building a legacy. But if building that legacy has to go through the Gunn Sons, then okay! They have FTR’s attention now. Will Austin & Colten regret writing checks their asses can’t cash?


Jericho is throwing a fit backstage!

He kicks things, throws things, hits things with a chair, and then throws those things he just hit! The Ocho shouts and yells all the way to his locker room, but will he ever get over losing to “a jobber?”


Tonight’s main eventers prepare backstage.

Ricky Starks works with a resistance band while MJF lounges while getting a shoulder rub. Will this difference in preparedness reflect how the main event goes?


Ruby Soho VS Tay Melo w/ Sammy Guevara!

The Runaway went after the Brazilian Goddess as part of her return, proving nothing is settled between them! Will Soho show the sports entertainer has #NoFuture? Or will Melo make the Jericho Appreciation Society proud after all the stumbles for the group lately?

But as Ruby gets on the apron, Tay BLASTS her down! Fans boo but Tay talks trash as she mocks Ruby. Tay goes out to fire off forearms but Ruby gives them back! They brawl, the ref reprimands but Ruby smacks Tay off the apron! Ruby ROCKS, CHOPS and ROCKS Tay, then whips her into railing! Fans fire up as Ruby stomps away on Tay! The ref says to get in the ring but the match isn’t officially underway so there are no real repercussions! Ruby ROCKS Tay but Tay ROCKS Ruby, then CLUBS away on her! Tay whips Ruby into the railing now! Tay drags Ruby up, whips her again, and Ruby hits more railing!

Tay drags Ruby up to whip again, and Ruby goes into steel steps! Fans boo but Tay puts Ruby in the ring. The ref has Tay stay back and she checks with Ruby. Fans rally behind Ruby and she says she wants this match! The bell rings, Tay runs in, but Ruby gets around to SAIDO! Fans fire up as Ruby clinches Tay again, for another SAIDO! And then a third SAIDO! Cover, TWO! Ruby rains down fists on Tay but the ref has her back off. Tay staggers up, Ruby brings her around but Tay swings a back elbow! Ruby wrenches around, NO FUTURE! But Tay bails out! Ruby is frustrated as Tay goes to the ramp. Tay doesn’t want any more, but Ruby pursues!

Tay mocks Ruby right in her face, then tells the ref to back off. Tay drags Ruby up, CLUBS her to ringside, and then argues with the ref. Tay puts Ruby on the apron to smack her off it. Ruby crawls away, Tay follows and she KICKS Ruby to a corner. Tay gets in Ruby’s face again to talk more trash, but the ref has her back off. Tay talks trash to the fans then storms after Ruby, Ruby mule kicks, CHOPS and ROCKS Tay! Tay ROCKS Ruby back! Tay CHOKES Ruby on the ropes! The ref counts, Tay lets off at 4, and then Tay talks more trash. Ruby sputters and Tay argues with the ref again. Tay goes out to get in the face of fans, and she snatches a sign that says “My Ruby!” Tay RIPS that sign up!

Tay smiles as she throws the pieces of paper away. Tay gets in the ring, tells the fans to shut up, but Ruby trips Tay up! Ruby fires off fists! Tay pushes Ruby away, then ROCKS her with a forearm! Tay storms up to drag Ruby up and around. Tay kicks at Ruby just to taunt the fan. Ruby ROCKS Tay! And again! And again! And again and again and again as AEW returns to single picture! Fans fire up as Ruby just doesn’t stop with the forearms! Ruby then reels Tay in for a short arm LARIAT! Ruby bumps Tay off buckles, then goes side to side! YAKUZA KICK! Tay staggers, Ruby runs side to side to YAKUZA KICK again!

Ruby keeps moving, Tay dodges, but Ruby goes up to bring Tay in, DEADLY NIGHTSHADE! Ruby dribbles Tay off the buckles all the way past “OCHO!” Fans cheer but the ref has Ruby back off. Ruby snarls as she stalks Tay. STO! Cover, TWO! Ruby drags Tay into a drop zone and then climbs up the corner. Fans fire up as Ruby is up top, for the SUPER SEN- NO, Ruby bails out as Tay moves. Tay comes back with a BOOT!! Cover, TWO!! Ruby survives and shocks Tay! Fans rally up, she drags Ruby up but Ruby CHOPS! Tay CHOPS! Ruby CHOPS! Tay CHOPS! Ruby shakes her arm out to CHOP again!

Tay CHOPS again! Ruby snarls and CHOPS! And CHOPS! And puts some stank on the- NO, SAYANAGI from Tay! Tay reels Ruby in, Gotch lift, PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO?!?! Fans are fired up and Tay is shocked again! Tay drags Ruby up, Gory Especials, but Ruby blocks the knee to KNEE back! Tay staggers and clutches her nose! Ruby brings Tay around, DESTINATION UNKNOWN!! Cover, Ruby wins!

Winner: Ruby Soho, by pinfall

But here comes Anna Jay! The Star of the Show storms into the ring to CLOBBER Ruby! Anna rains down fists on Ruby, and then she helps her bestie back up. Anna hooks Ruby up for a GORY BOMB! Ruby clutches her repaired nose and Tay says that is what she gets! Fans boo but TayJay soak up the heat. Will the JAS redeem themselves by any means necessary?


Alex Marvez is waiting backstage.

He waits on a medical update for Hangman Adam Page after hitting a ring post head first last week. The Dark Order is also here and Evil Uno is trying to sort out the whole Preston Vance betrayal thing. But Hangman says if they want a medical update, that if he still has migraines in the mornings and gets dizzy in the shower. Or do they wanna know when he’ll be cleared to face Jon Moxley? Because at this point, Hangman doesn’t know, it probably isn’t any time soon. Is that what everyone wants to know? Marvez says yes, given that Moxley called Hangman and The Dark Order out, daring them to show up on Rampage.

Uno says Hangman shouldn’t do it, but Hangman says he has a status update. This is the one he gave in October, when Hangman was “face down on the mat, snoring for 60 seconds.” They rolled him over, put him in an ambulance, and he came to along the way to the hospital. He started getting them right after awhile. The date was October 18th. Where was he? Cincinnati. Who was he wrestling? The AEW World Champion, Jon Moxley. And they said that Hangman had 100 missed calls and texts on his phone, so they asked if he wanted to see them. He had to unlock the phone, but the screen light was so bright to him.

The medics saw a picture of Hangman’s son and said he’s so cute. What’s his name? Hangman couldn’t remember. Those green eyes looked back up at Hangman, and he didn’t know. For an entire hour, Hangman didn’t know. Hangman went through hell. If Moxley wants to fight Hangman on Friday, then he will fight! He knows where the ring is. But if Moxley wants to send Hangman back to hell, Hangman’s taking Moxley with him. The Cowboy is fired up, will he get his payback on The Maniac?


Dustin Rhodes and the Best Friends speak.

The Natural tells Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Chuck Taylor & Danhausen, “We’re in Texas, boys. Do you know what that means? That’s home for me. Kip Sabian, Trent Seven, Butcher, Blade. This Friday night on AEW Rampage, I’m with The Best Friends and… this spooky boy over here. We’re gonna flatten you! This is MY backyard, and I’ll be damned if we’re gonna lay down for you, cuz we’re gonna flatten you.” Trent says hands in, and everyone puts their hands in. They tell Kip and crew they’ll see them on Friday. Will this all-star team be able to put away Sabian’s Superbad squad?


BREAKING NEWS on the World Trios Best of 7 series!

It is official! Match 5 will be NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! Now the hammer, and just about anything else both teams want to use, will be legal! Plus, Tony Khan has planned ahead. Should match 6 be needed, it will be under Falls Count Anywhere! And, as unlikely as it may be, should the seventh and final match be needed, it will be as a LADDER MATCH! Can The Elite get the comeback on track to then take on Escalara de la Muerte?


AEW World Championship & Dynamite Diamond Ring Winner Takes All: MJF VS Ricky Starks!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman had The Firm steal the Casino Ladder Match Poker Chip so that he could face Jon Moxley for the title at Full Gear. Then he had Lord William Regal hand him the brass knuckles so he could win the AEW World Championship. But The Absolute actually put in the work to get through the World Title Eliminator Tournament and win the Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal so that he could go after both prizes at once! Will MJF hold onto #TripleB, the Big Burberry Belt and his prized $50,000 ring? Or will Starks take everything away from MJF and leave him out in the cold?

The introductions are made, MJF quite literally gets in Starks’ face with the belt, but then runs off as Starks storms up on him. Fans taunt “MAXI PAD! MAXI PAD!” while the ref holds up Burberry belt and diamond ring. Winter is Coming to an end, but will MJF’s reign of terror end before it begins?

The bell rings, fans fire up and Starks stares down with MJF. They approach, talk a little trash, and fans are thunderous already.

MJF slaps a fan’s popcorn out of their hands then paces around while he vents. Fans tell MJF to go back to the ring, so MJF storms his way back to ringside. The ring count is climbing, MJF glares at the fans, but MJF slides in at 7 of 10. Fans keep taunting “MAXI PAD! MAXI PAD!” and MJF rushes Starks, but Starks arm-drags him away! And then hip tosses! Starks whips MJF to ropes then back drops him high and hard!

MJF writhes, rises, but Starks sunset flips! TWO, Starks ducks the Penalty Kick to schoolboy! TWO, but Starks backslides, TWO!! MJF swings, into a cradle! TWO!! MJF narrowly escapes, but Starks LARIATS him down! Fans fire up as Starks watches MJF crawl to a corner. Starks runs corner to corner but MJF uses ropes as a defense!

MJF RAMS into Starks, whips him corner to corner hard, and Starks bounces off buckles! MJF gets up on the corner just to soak up the heat.

MJF storms up to Starks now, brings him up to snapmare and rear bearhug. Starks endures, fights up, and fans rally. Starks throws back elbows on MJF, gets free to run, but into a FLAPJACK HOTSHOT! Starks flops out of the ring, clutching his ribs, and AEW goes picture in picture.

MJF lets the ring count climb so he can catch his breath. Starks stirs, MJF says to count faster, but Starks stirs at around 5 of 10. The count climbs, fans rally, and Starks stands at 8 to slide in at 9! MJF storms up to bring Starks around, GUTBUSTER! MJF paces around while Starks crawls to a corner. MJF is after Starks with a stomp! MJF stomps a mudhole, then digs in a boot! The ref counts, MJF lets off to glare at the ref, then he goes back for Starks. Starks CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Starks runs, but into a kitchen sink knee! MJF covers, TWO! MJF stalks Starks to ropes, KICKS him, and then stalks him to a corner.

MJF stands Starks up, whips him corner to corner hard, and Starks bounces off buckles again. Starks clutches his ribs but sits up in the corner. MJF is after Starks with a fishhook to the nose! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off, and MJF drags Starks up. Starks throws body shots, forearms, and goes to run, but MJF throws Starks down by his hair!  The ref reprimands but MJF drags Starks up to whip him to ropes. Starks turns knee into roll-up, TWO!! MJF narrowly escapes again, but he whips Starks away, and catches him into a cobra twist! Starks endures but MJF digs his knuckles into the ribs! MJF even BITES Starks’ side!

MJF lets go before the ref notices, and then he tells fans to shut up. Fans boo more, but MJF reaches out again. MJF holds the ropes for more leverage!

MJF uses the ref as a shield! Fans boo, Starks storms up and moves the ref aside, MJF LOW BLOWS Starks!!! MJF then hits a cradle, MJF wins!!!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion AND Dynamite Diamond Ringbearer)

The reign of terror continues, and not just with the Big Burberry Belt but with the Dynamite Diamond Ring! MJF goes four years running with that ring on his finger, he gets through his first defense to keep that belt on his shoulder, and he storms right up the ramp to get outta Dallas. But wait! BRYAN DANIELSON IS HERE!! And he is PISSED about what MJF did to William Regal! Bryan chases MJF back to ringside, around the ring, and then into the crowd! MJF manages to jump over the railing and run right up the bleachers! Bryan glares from the ring, the American Dragon is coming for MJF! Will Bryan get to kick Max’s MJF’ing head in?

My Thoughts:

A great night for AEW with this year’s Winter is Coming. For one, just an awesome Trios match to continue the Best of 7 series. Great little hero bit from Nick coming back out after hurting his ankle (all kayfabe of course), but I was surprised that moment didn’t help The Elite win. And I like Omega blurring the lines since we all know he is an EVP. He didn’t just say next time was No Disqualification, he left that to THE boss, Tony Khan, as well as the public opinion. And being told all the stipulations to come, if it wasn’t clear we were going all the way to match number seven, it is now. However, The Elite winning No DQ and Falls Count Anywhere is a bit heavy handed. But the seventh and last match being a ladder match really could let things go either way, that will be an awesome match to finish this off with.

That said, next up is of course The House of Black. They decimated The Factory before the match, then poor QT had no chance during the match. The House of Black are also going to have a match with Eddie Kingston & Ortiz at some point given the promo we got from Kingston & Ortiz, can’t wait to see what comes of that. Then the House of Black will simply be considered #1 contenders by the “rankings,” and they’ll go right after the winner of that ladder match as soon as the end of that match. The Elite will have a great match with The House of Black, and I wouldn’t ever say The Elite are transitional champions given this Best of 7, but I am saying there’s a chance The Elite puts the House of Black over.

Good segment from The Acclaimed and Team Double Jay. While Team Double Jay using “sports entertainment” tactics to jump to being challengers, obviously we’re going to see these teams face off anyway. Kinda exposes the bad handling of their own ranking system, but AEW isn’t going to bring in Jeff Jarrett just to have him level grind on Dark and Elevation. And while FTR had a great promo to call out Austin & Colten, I again bring up how they didn’t really do the best with building the Gunns into facing FTR. But I guess a grudge match is fine compared to a title match we knew the Gunns weren’t winning anyway.

Great match from Brian Cage and Jack Perry, and I do like that JB is self aware about becoming a giantslayer. He called out Morrissey, got Morrissey and Moriarty, but I love that Hook came out. Now, Morrissey accepting Stokely’s orders to back off from Hook when Morrissey is as big as three Hooks is really too pro-wrestling convention. Morrissey should’ve wanted after Hook and Stokely struggling to stop him and then security and referees had to stop this. But I sensed Hook and JB teaming up so I’m happy it’s happening. But between the two, Moriarty is the one taking the loss in that tag match, and then we get Jungle Boy VS Big Bill 1v1 later.

Good promo from the Blackpool Combat Club to call out anyone and everyone, and for Moxley to again call out Hangman. Great promo from Hangman to share his experience of going through that concussion. And you can bet, win or lose against Sammy Guevara, Moxley and Hangman are going to brawl, and the Dark Order will be dragged into things to go up against the BCC by default. Good promo from the JAS, and I actually like that Jericho is forcing Garcia into a Young Boy role with Sammy Guevara as his senpai. This will get us back on track to what we should’ve got with Garcia’s internal conflict of pro-wrestler VS sports entertainer. And maybe this time, he lands on pro-wrestler.

Jericho putting over Action Andretti was awesome stuff, especially making that match so great. Jericho’s tantrum backstage was also awesome, and I hope they do something big with Action Andretti in 2023 after this. Good promo from Dustin and Best Friends to set up taking on Sabian, Seven, Butcher & Blade. That 8 Man could go either way, but we all know it sets up Cassidy VS Sabian for the All-Atlantic Championship. Good promo from Hayter and Shida to hype up their title match, good promo from Britt and Skye to set up a match for Rampage. And a very good match from Ruby and Tay. Ruby of course wins to help build her return, but I should’ve figured Anna Jay would attack. Not sure who Ruby gets as a partner, but I bet there’s another tag match from this.

And of course, great promos from both MJF and Starks to hype up the main event, and that main event was awesome stuff. That match in itself felt PPV worthy, but at the same time, I just knew somewhere in this match, MJF would use a low blow kick. MJF retains all his prizes, as I also expected, but it makes so much sense for Bryan to step up now. Bryan probably has to go through MJF’s usual rigmarole of challenges, especially since MJF went on about not defending the title unless on PPV, or in this case, big time episodes. MJF will insist on waiting until after Holiday Bash and New Year’s Smash, and then Revolution isn’t until March, so there might be eight different things MJF makes Bryan do if he wants to be the next challenger.

My Score: 8.9/10

There’s a medical emergency backstage!

The ambulance drives away, and now Nick is loaded into a second! The Young Bucks were attacked before cameras were rolling, Don Callis calms Kenny Omega down, and Hangman rides with Nick. Omega has his main event match with AAA rival El Hijo del Vikingo, but who went after his best friends?


Six Man Tag: Orange Cassidy, Darby Allin & Sting VS The Superbad Squad!

Freshly Squeezed is still a champion, as he retained the now AEW International Championship in Canada. But now, a familiar foe is rearing his Superbad head once again. Kip Sabian is bringing Butcher & Blade with him to go after Cassidy while his Best Friends are down and out. But will Cassidy’s new pals be more than enough to turn back the Superbad Squad?

The trios sort out and Cassidy starts against Kip. Fans rally and chant for “FRESHLY SQUEEZED!” but Kip copies Cassidy putting his hands up. Cassidy rushes in, Kip gets around and waistlocks to headlock. Cassidy powers out, headlocks back, but Kip powers out, only for Cassidy to slip around and headlock again. Kip powers out, things speed up and Cassidy arm-drags, but Kip cartwheels through! Kip mocks Cassidy, Cassidy rushes in but Kip dumps him out. Kip fakes Cassidy out with an Arabian Press, then he mocks putting his hands up again. Cassidy rushes back in, dodges Kip now, and sends him out!

Cassidy mocks Kip, then puts his hands up. To put his hands in his pockets! Kip rushes in, Cassidy dodges and SHOTGUNS! Cassidy kips up and fans fire up, but Kip scrambles away to tag in Butcher. Butcher eggs Cassidy on, but fans cheer as Cassidy tags in STIIIING! The Icon steps to Andy Williams and Andy talks trash. Butcher swings a forearm, but Sting just brushes it off! Butcher throws another forearm, but then Sting counter punches! And back hands! And punches again! Sting kicks low, ROCKS Butcher, then fires off in the corner. But Butcher claws at the eyes! The fans boo but Butcher BITES Sting’s forehead!

Butcher BLASTS Cassidy and Darby, then mocks Sting’s howl. Butcher runs, but misses the splash! Sting runs to hit the STINGER SPLASH! Fans fire up as Sting snapmares and gets the legs! But Blade and Kip attack! Fans boo but Darby and Cassidy fight them off! Kip throws Cassidy out, Blade scoops and dumps Darby out, then the Superbad Squad coordinates. Butcher & Blade reel Sting in, Butcher tags Kip, and then they DOUBLE SUPLEX Sting! Kip goes up the corner, but Sting slow rolls away, a la Cassidy! Speaking of Cassidy, he and Darby go after Butcher & Blade on the outside! Fans fire up but Kip is frustrated.

Kip storms over to another corner and climbs up again, but Sting slow rolls the other way! Fans fire up, Darby reaches out and makes the tag! Kip leaps, Darby gets under to SLAP, HEADBUTT, roll and CODE RED! Cover, TWO! Kip is still in this and Penelope Ford gets on the apron! The ref reprimands her while Darby whips Kip.

A huge win for the unlikeliest of trios, and Cassidy adorns Sting with the sunglasses! As for Darby, he is looking at the Double or Nothing banner. The Relentless One wants at MJF and the gold, will he be living it up in Las Vegas?


AEW shares backstage footage from last week.

After having his “Re-Bar-Mitzvah” interrupted by Darby Allin, Sammy Guevara and “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, it was obvious Maxwell Jacob Friedman was mad. He curses up a storm, then says he is the world champion! But Darby Allin says the world title means much more than money and fame. It is him being him. And Jack Perry, for himself, his family, and everyone who supported him all this time, he is going to become champion on his own. Sammy says that the world title is his destiny! He said so since episode ONE of Dynamite that he is going to be world champion. But MJF says that’s not how it works! You don’t waltz up to the champ and call your shot, you EARN it!

MJF has beaten Darby, Sammy and JB once each in 1v1 competition in their AEW careers, and he tells them they have to become #1 contender. Good luck trying, because all three of them SUCK! Sammy says he’ll win as many matches as it takes to get that belt off MJF. JB says that you can check the record books. He’s already won more matches than any of them. Darby says he’s beaten Sammy and he’s beaten JB, so he will stop at nothing to make sure that MJF is no longer champion. Who of these three Young Pillars of AEW will be THE one that challenges MJF at Double or Nothing?


AEW takes a closer look at tonight’s main event dream match.

Excalibur narrates that, “In 2021, there was no one hotter in professional wrestling than Kenny Omega. Known as ‘The Belt Collector,’ Omega won championships around the world, including in Mexico, where he won the AAA Mega Championship. At the same time, El Hijo del Vikingo was quickly establishing himself as one of the premier luchadors in all of Mexico. A match was made for December 2021: Vikingo, Omega, for the first time ever for the AAA Mega Championship. Unfortunately, Omega’s injuries at Full Gear were so severe, they required surgery, keeping him out of action for nearly a year.

“Now, with Omega back at 100%, the dream match is on for tonight. Kenny Omega, El Hijo del Vikingo, live!” Who will come out as truly the best today?


AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Gunns VS Top Flight!

They may not be the Young Bucks, the Lucha Brothers or the Hardy Boyz, but Austin & Colten are the brother tag team reigning over AEW. But will they soon find out they are not nearly as good as they think they are? Or will the Gunns cause the Coldest Tag Team in the Game to melt down?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who is really the better brother duo!

The teams sort out, Austin starts against Dante, and Independence taunts the “ASS~ BOYS!” Austin tunes that out, knuckle locks with Dante, and then he CHOPS! Austin goes up and up, but then says no no no. Austin hops down, swings on Dante, but misses! Dante knuckle locks and CHOPS, then he goes up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Dante kips up and fans fire up! Austin tags Colten, but Dante arm-drags Colten down! Tag to Darius, the Martins double whip and speed things up, to then DROPKICK Colten down! Austin runs in, but into a DROPKICK! The Gunns regroup, but the Martins double clothesline them up and out!

Fans fire up as Dante says they’re getting those belts. The “ASS~ BOYS!” regroup and Colten slides back in. Tag to Austin, he and Dante circle again, and Austin gets around to shove Dante to ropes. Dante BLASTS Colten before the cheap shot! Dante then goes up and over Austin, only for Austin to pull hair! The ref reprimands, but misses Colten HOTSHOT Dante down! Fans boo as Austin stomps and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Austin whips Dante out of the ring, then taunts Darius to distract the ref. Colten stomps away on Dante! Colten puts Dante in before anyone notices, and Austin bumps Dante off buckles. Tag to Colten, he stomps Dante, but lets off as the ref reprimands. Colten stomps some more, he and Austin taunt Independence and Darius, then Colten drags Dante up. Colten DECKS Dante, then mocks the fans. Colten ROCKS Dante, ROCKS him again, then suplexes. Cover, TWO! Colten stays between the Martin brothers, drags Dante over and bumps him off buckles. Tag to Austin, he stomps Dante now, then digs his boots in.

The ref reprimands but Austin mocks the fans rallying for Dante. Austin lets off and Colten CHOKES Dante! Colten lets off Dante before he gets caught, and Austin tags Colten in. Colten drags Dante up, whips him to ropes, and the Gunns body shot, knee lift and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Colten stays between the Martins again, drags Dante up and whips him to the corner. Colten runs in but Dante dodges the splash! Austin tags in and hurries to stop Dante. Austin shoves Dante down, but Dante fakes Austin out to go under! Austin still grabs a leg, tags Colten back in, and the Gunns double back suplex! But Dante lands on his feet!

Dynamite returns to single picture, Dante goes over Austin, over Colten, and tags in Darius! Darius rallies on the Gunns and fans fire up! Darius hits an atomic drop on Austin, then LARIATS Colten! Mule kick for Austin, and Darius whips him at Colten. Austin reverses but Darius uses that to UPPERCUT Colten! Austin runs back in, but is sent into Colten! Darius uses Austin to get up and ENZIGURI Colten! Darius then GERMAN SUPLEXES Austin, and STANDING SPANISH FLIES Colten! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Darius drags Colten up. Tag to Dante, Top Flight double whip, but Colten ducks and tags Austin!

Dante kicks Colten away, Darius DIVES onto Colten to hit him into railing! Dante GAMANGIRIS Austin, goes up and up and NOSEDIVES!! Cover, Colten breaks it!! Fans boo but Colten was within the rules. Wait, is that THE KINGDOM!? Mike Bennett & Matt Taven are mugging Darius over their ROH losses! But Dante FLIES out onto them! Direct hit and fans fire up! Dante hurries back up, springboards again, but Austin gets under!

Colten gets in, Dante runs into a 3:10 TO YUMA!! Cover, the Gunns win!

Winners: The Gunns, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

Fans boo that the Gunns win, but Darius is pissed at The Kingdom! Darius chases off Mike & Matt, will Top Flight get revenge in ROH? As for the Gunns, they hear FTR coming! Fans fire up again as Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler step out on stage with mics in their hands! Colten gets a mic to have the FTR music stop. Colten says no one wants to hear that song and no one wants to see FTR. Fans boo because they disagree. FTR says they’re not here to fight. They’re here to talk business. Well, no one wants to hear you talk! The Gunns don’t like or respect FTR. And guess what? FTR are LOSERS! They lost three sets of belts, and lost to the Gunns!

There is nothing FTR can say or offer them to get a rematch. NOTHING! Nothing? So like, if they said they’ll never challenge the Gunns again for those titles should they lose- NO! Do you not hear what Austin is saying, “you hillbillies? NOTHING! There’s NOTHING! What do you have to offer?! NOTHING!!” Then if the Gunns wanna prove their first win wasn’t a fluke, should they win against FTR again, FTR will never tag together in AEW again. Oh, the break up? So heartbreaking! LOOK AT HIS FACE! NOTHING!! Okay, okay. Dax says if FTR can’t beat the Gunns to win the AEW World Tag Team Championships, FTR will just quit AEW.

Fans boo, but it seems that got through to the Gunns. If the Gunns beat FTR again, FTR leaves AEW forever? Yes, that’s what Dax said. Well, in that case, deal! The Gunns and FTR shake on it, but then Gunns literally spin in FTR’s faces! The Gunns run for it, but the match is coming either way. Will the “ASS~ BOYS!” get their asses kicked? Or will they be the team that banishes FTR from AEW?


Backstage interview with Jade Cargill, Leila Grey & Mark Sterling.

Renee Paquette is with the AEW TBS Champion, her Last Baddie Standing and her legal representation. Renee says that Taya Valkyrie is All Elite now, and she has her eye on the TBS title. What is Jade’s reaction to that? “Renee, cut the sh*t. We had this Taya girl come in and interrupt my moment to answer an open challenge that was already closed, baby girl. And then, had the audacity to use my finisher. Mark, tie this up.” Sterling has a document, it is a Cease & Desist order. This will be sent to Taya Valkyrie, telling Taya that she is no longer allowed to use the chicken wing facebuster, which is also Jade’s move, as her finisher.

Leila says that she should deliver this document to Taya personally, this Saturday on Rampage. Because she has a few words of her own for Taya. So that’s an official challenge? Yes. Welcome to #ThatBitchShow. Will La Wera Loca have a jaded response to this frivolous lawsuit?


No Disqualifications: Hook VS Stokely Hathaway!

An injured arm turned into a suspension turned into a settlement turned into a high stakes bet that The Firm lost, and now it has resulted in this match. And though Ethan Page, Matt Hardy, Isiah Kassidy, Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey see Stokely off, they can’t stay per the stipulations of the bet. As the introduction says, “He’s not as large as the men he represents, he has the heart of a lion and the wisdom of an owl.” But will any of that help him defeat The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?

As Hook makes his entrance, Stokely grabs the mic to say, “Whoa, whoa, whoa! I’ve got some breaking news! I spoke to Dr. Simpson (he means Sampson) earlier, and he said I am not medically cleared to compete. I know, I know. I wanted to so bad. And I would also, what a coinky-dink, announce that I am retiring.” What? Stokely thanks all 12 of his fands, God bless! Justin, here, doctor’s note. Make it official. Justin takes the note, and it reads, “He is SICK.” Justin says that with all due respect, that’s a receipt for Wingstop. The ref RIPS the receipt! And the bell rings! Fans fire up and Hook is ready, so Stokely bails!

Stokely runs around the ring, out to the crowd, but Hook pursues! Fans fire up as Hook chases Stokely down, drags him back, CLUBS him, then brings him over to KNEE and TOSS! Stokely ends up at ringside again and fans are thunderous! Hook stalks Stokely, Stokely runs in to UPPERCUT, but Stokely bounces off of Hook! Stokely scurries away, gets back up, and runs in, but into a leg capture! EL CAMINO to the floor! Fans fire up as Hook drags Stokely up, puts him in the ring, and then looks under the ring. Fans fire up more, because here comes a SPARE GUARD RAIL! Hook puts that in the ring while the Firm can only watch.

Hardy tries to calm the group down, Stokely can take care of himself with things getting “hardcore.” Ethan says no he can’t, they didn’t practice any of the hardcore stuff! Stokely bails out again but Hook puts the railing in a corner. Hook drags Stokely up but Stokely BLASTS Hook with the fire extinguisher! Fans boo but Stokely gets a chair! Stokely smacks the steps a couple times, he says, “I’m not a killer, but don’t push me! That’s Tupac.” Stokely hurries in, fans rally up, and Stokely swings, but Hook blocks! Hook BOOTS Stokely, then SMACKS him on the back! And again! And again! And again!

Hook throws the chair aside, Stokely is barely moving! But Hook drags Stokely up to EL CAMINO onto the railing! The railing BENDS! Hook drags Stokely off the railing, covers, but then pulls him up at TWO! Hook wants REDRUM!!! Stokely is OUT, Hook wins!

Winner: Hook, by submission

The FTW Champion could’ve ended it sooner, but he chose to teach Stokely a lesson: Do not get on Hook’s bad side. Hardy says Ethan must avenge Stokely! Ethan can beat Hook! Hardy is gonna get a match made right now! All Ego is ready, but will he be ready when they #SendHook?


Adam Cole is here!

Fans fire up as the Undisputed One heads to the ring. Naturally, everyone joins in on the “BOOM!” and “ADAM COLE BAYBAY!” Cole gets the mic and says, “Wow. Hey, hey, I think I know the answer to this, but who’s ready for Storytime with Adam Cole, baybay?” Everyone cheers! Cole continues with, “Seven days. We are just seven days away from me making my in-ring return here in AEW. And listen, I know I’ve talked a ton about my struggles and what I went through, but as far as how I’m feeling right now? Guys, I feel freaking great. I have never been more ready, never been more prepared, to get back in this ring, doing what I love, and that is wrestle for AEW.”

Fans are fired up, and Cole knows everyone has questions. “The biggest one being: Who is my opponent going to be on March 29th?” Fans echo, “Who? Who? Who?” Cole starts to speak, but here comes Daniel Garcia! Fans boo as Red Death has the mic to say, “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Who’s ready for Storytime with Daniel Garcia, baybay?” Garcia knows Cole’s been gone awhile, so here’s an update on a few things. Fans tell Garcia to STFU already but Garcia says since Cole’s been gone, Garcia’s become a real veteran in AEW. All the boys in the back respect him so much that he is a locker room leader!

Fans boo more but Garcia says as locker room leader, it is his duty to come out here to not only welcome Cole back, but to put him in his place, too. Garcia says Cole may not remember, but here’s an update on what Garcia’s been doing the last nine months while Cole was home, “playing stupid video games on Twitch.” Cole smirks but allows it. Brody King: beat him! Ricky Starks: beat him! Bryan Danielson: Garcia beat him, too. Garcia’s main-evented more AEW programming over the past year than anyone else on the roster! Garcia is the lifeblood that pumps through this company. And he’s to respect Cole? To welcome Cole back? Where’s Garcia’s warm welcome?

Where is Garcia’s respect when he’s been here, been doing this, and proved himself as one of the best pro-wrest- Oops. Freudian slip there? Garcia corrects himself, “Sports entertainers on the planet today!” That’s what Garcia is! So what makes Cole so special? “What makes me special? When they ring the freakin’ bell, that’s what makes me special! That’s what makes m e special.” Cole admits he likes Garcia. Garcia is really, really good. And some day, he could be leading the charge in AEW. The problem is the company he keeps.

“The Jericho Appreciation Society, they’ve done a great job of giving you this false sense of security. This overconfidence, which sometimes is good, and sometimes is bad. But let me remind you, even me not wrestling for nine months, I am still Adam Cole Baybay. I am a multi-time world champion. I have traveled the globe, fought and beat some of the very best! As a matter of fact, while I was sitting at home for nine months, I was wondering if I’d ever get the chance to wrestle again, hoping, praying, willing to do anything for a second chance. And looks like I found that second chance.”

Fans fire up and Cole says if Garcia is crazy enough to want the match, then dammit, he’s on! Adam Cole VS Daniel Garcia, first-time-ever, next week on Dynamite! But Cole will remind Garcia of something: “This is not just my return match; this is a statement. It’s a statement to the entire locker room that one of the best damn pro-wrestlers on the planet is BACK, baybay.” Fans are fired up for “ADAM COLE! ADAM COLE!” Cole hopes Garcia realizes what he’ sin for. Because Cole promises next week will be a great night. A great night for Cole, for the fans, but for Garcia… Not so much. “See you next week, Garcia. BOOM.”

Cole is ready, Garcia is ready, but will the Dragonslayer stay a great sports enner-tay-ners? Or will the pro-wrestler in him rise to the surface against one of the greatest pro-wrestlers alive today?


Alex Marvez is outside The Elite’s locker room.

Marvez can hear a conversation going on inside, and he steps inside. Callis and Omega are talking, and Callis wants Marvez to hold on. What is Omega’s concern here? Omega’s concern is that his best friends left in an ambulance! He should’ve gone with them! Callis says he sent Cutler and Nakazawa with them. Omega has a match tonight! Hear Callis out. He’s a glass half full kind of guy. Injuries happen, but hear him out. The Bucks going to the hospital might’ve been the best thing for Omega and Callis. It allows for focus! Omega is in a singles match, the God of Pro-Wrestling is back! “Those kids will be fine in a few months.”

Callis now has Marvez join in. “Kenny Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo is gonna blow the roof off! The God of Pro-Wrestling is BACK, and it starts tonight on Dynamite! Now get out.” Marvez throws this back to ringside, but is Callis only thinking of his benefit, not Kenny’s?


Jon Moxley w/ The Blackpool Combat Club VS Stu Grayson w/ The Dark Order!

The Maniac, along with Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, have torn into the Dark Order from Silver to Reynolds to Evil Uno. They did all that to anger Hangman Page, but they’ve also angered #PlayerTwo! Moxley may be #ForgedByCombat, but will he survive someone born and bred for combat?

The bell rings and Stu RAMS Moxley into a corner! Fans fire up as Stu fires off on Moxley but lets off as the ref counts. Moxley turns things around to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Moxley pie faces Stu, but Stu turns things around to CHOP back! Stu stalks Moxley to another corner, KNEES him and CLUBS him, then stalks him to a third corner. Moxley kicks low, ROCKS Stu with a forearm, then another, then digs his boots in. The ref counts, Moxley steps off at 4, then Moxley drags Stu up to headlock takeover. Stu keeps his shoulders up, the Dark Order coaches him up but Moxley gets a knuckle lock cover. TWO as Stu gets his left arm up.

Moxley pushes the hand down, covers, TWO as Stu gets the right arm up. Moxley pushes that arm down again, covers, ONE as Stu gets his left arm back up. Stu fights to his feet but Moxley kicks low.

Moxley reels Stu in for a SAIDO! Stu staggers up but then flops out to the apron. Moxley runs to BLAST Stu off and to the barriers! Moxley flips Stu off while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Yuta & Claudio taunt Stu as the ring count climbs. The Dark Order coaches Stu up and he gets in the ring at 5 of 10, but Moxley is right on him. Stu throws a forearm, then another, and another, and another! But Moxley ROCKS Stu with just one! Stu falls over and Claudio yawns. It seems this isn’t competitive enough for the Swiss Superman. Moxley has the legs, he stomps Stu in the stomach, then ties the legs up. But Stu fights back with fists! Moxley still powers Stu into the TEXAS CLOVERLEAF! Stu endures as Moxley sits deep, and he reaches out to the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Moxley lets off at 4.

Cover, TWO!! Stu is still in this, but Moxley has the knuckle locks back. Dynamite returns to single picture as Moxley rains down the DRAGON STOMPS! Cover, TWO!! Stu hangs tough again, but Moxley just taunts him.

Fans rally, Stu rises, and Moxley KICKS him in the chest! And KICKS him again! Moxley eggs Stu on, then KICKS him more! Moxley SLAPS Stu! Stu snarls and stands up to fire off forearms! Stu whips, Moxley reverses but Stu CLOBBERS him! Stu dodges, tilt-o-whirls and REVERSE DDTS! Then he rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Fans fire up as Stu gives Moxley a taste of his own medicine! And then the SIDE EFFECT! SPRINGBOARD MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO!! Moxley survives and Stu grows frustrated. Stu hurries up a corner, but Yuta distracts! Fans boo but the Dark Order storm up on the BCC!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

The Dark Order hurry into the ring and Moxley backs off, there won’t be any extracurriculars here. But will the Dark Order ever get payback on the mean SOBs in the BCC?


Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.

Renee says she can feel the frustration coming off The Absolute. The back ‘n’ forth with him and Juice Robinson, where do they stand? You tell him! Starks is “sick and tired of talking back and forth. No action, all talk.” Starks doesn’t wanna stand around, take time off his vacation, just to say Juice, he doesn’t like that you attacked him from behind. That’s cool and all, but whatever! How about this, though? Saturday Night Rampage, Starks is done talking. If Juice wants to face him man to man, then he can find Starks on Rampage! If not, just stop! Starks is over it, he is so sick of it! This is the craziest thing he’s been a part of his whole life!

Starks is issuing the open challenge to Juice. If Juice accepts it or not, is a man or not, Starks doesn’t give a damn anymore. The Absolute will be waiting, but will the Booster oblige?

Toni Storm w/ The Outcasts VS Skye Blue!

The Lightning From Down Under has been striking down “spoiled rookies” again and again, but in the Dark. Will she do so again in the spotlight of Dynamite? Or will Skye roll the Storm away?

The bell rings and Storm BLASTS Skye with a forearm! Then she stomps a mudhole into Skye in the corner! The ref counts, Storm lets off but she grins and soaks up the heat.

Skye full nelsons, Storm arm-drags free to SHOTGUN Skye down!

Saraya says Storm has this now! Storm says kiss this, and here comes SWEET HIP MUSIC!! GERMAN SUPLEX, and then STORM ZERO!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall

The Outcasts with the assist, but now they bring out the spray paint! Fans boo as the Outcast scare off the ref, then surround Skye! But here comes Riho and Willow! Just like last week, Riho has the pipe!! Riho runs the Outcast off and warns them. The Outcasts leave for now, having gotten the win. Will Riho, Willow and Skye start thinking of sticking together from now on?


The AEW medical staff checks on Stu Grayson.

They’re working on his left arm, where did they feel it pop? But then Moxley sneaks up to say, “It’s just business.” And he puts on the SLEEPER!! Claudio & Yuta TOSS the medics aside! Stu is all alone as Moxley chokes him out, then SMACKS him off a trunk! The BCC give Stu the icepack back then leave, what will Hangman & the Dark Order have to say about this?


Kenny Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo!

The AAA Mega Championship match that was meant to happen in December of 2021 was denied because of injury and misfortune. But now we are all fortunate enough to have this match happen here! “HE was the longest reigning Mega Champion at 765 days, 292 days more than El Hijo del Vikingo. HE never lost that title. HE is undefeated in singles matches in Mexico and also on Dynamite. Many people say HE is also undefeated at life. HE is often complimented on his accomplishments, matches, chiseled physique and hair, yet he is personally proud of his win-loss record in Independence, Missouri, which is better than his record of 1-1 in… NOOOORTH CAROLINA~!

“He arrives tonight after his 833 mile journey from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Weighing 224 pounds, HE is…! KENNY! OOOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEGAAAAAA~!” The fans go wild for the Cleaner, the Best Bout Machine, and Don Callis’ God of Pro-Wrestling, but will Omega prove he is better than the Mega Champion?

But as Omega makes his way down the ramp, El Hijo del Vikingo DIVES onto him! Fans fire up, EHDV throws off his cape, then he runs again, to FLY! Direct hit again and Independence is thunderous! EHDV puts Omega in the ring, springboards and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Omega ends up in a corner, EHDV runs in to clothesline! EHDV fires off forearms, but Omega turns it around to fire them back! The ref wants them to let off, this isn’t a match yet! Omega rains down fists, lets off, and now the bell rings! Fans are thunderous as Omega stomps EHDV down. Omega drags EHDV up, whips him corner to corner, but EHDV slips out to the apron!

Omega hits buckles, then EHDV ENZIGURIS! And GAMANGIRIS! EHDV climbs up, and jumps to IMPOLODER DRAGONRANA! Omega goes flying, then staggers up into the SCREW HIGH KICK! Omega’s on the ropes, EHDV runs to DOUBLE KNEE him through the ropes! Omega falls to the floor, EHDV refreshes the count, and fans say “This is Awesome!” EHDV SHOOTING STAR PRESSES to the floor! A bit double-edged, but fans lose their minds! Callis protests, the ring count climbs, but EHDV puts Omega in the ring. EHDV aims, slingshots and then springboards to 450 SPLASH! Cover, TWO!!

Omega goes to a corner, EHDV runs in to GAMANGIRI again! Omega staggers away, EHDV pursues but Omega CHOPS! And CHOPS again! EHDV falls over but Omega stalks him to a corner. Omega brings EHDV up to JAB! And JAB! fans rally and duel, Omega drags EHDV up to whip. Omega scoops EHDV for a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Omega drags EHDV back up fast, to fisherman BUSTER! Cover, TWO! EHDV hangs tough and Omega is frustrated but the fans are loving this. Omega stalks EHDV to the ropes, scrapes him to the apron, and then Omega goes out to follow EHDV.

Omega CLUBS EHDV, and whips him hard into barriers! EHDV falls in a heap, but Omega goes looking under the ring. Omega brings out a TABLE! Fans fire up for that, and Omega stands that table up near the ring. The ref reprimands, this isn’t a Tables match or anything like that. But fans chant, “WE WANT TABLES!” as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Omega drags EHDV up, puts him in the ring, and Omega storms up to scoop and BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Omega clamps on with an armlock and chinbar, but he also fishhooks EHDV’s face! The ref reprimands, Omega lets off, but then pulls on EHDV’s hair! The ref counts but Omega lets off at 4. Omega looms over EHDV, stomps him, stomps him more, then springboard stomps! Omega drags EHDV around to KNEE him in the side! And again! Cover, TWO! EHDV hangs tough but Omega just snarls. Omega drags EHDV up to CHOP him back down! Omega drags EHDV up again to CLUB him back down!

Omega drags EHDV up at the ropes, ROCKS him with a right hand, then ROCKS him again! And again! And again! The ref reprimands and counts, Omega lets off, but then Omega CHOKES EHDV with his foot! Dynamite returns, the fans boo and the ref counts, but Omega lets off at 4 again. Omega ROCKS EHDV again, JABS him, then whips him to ropes. EHDV ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl RANA! Omega goes to the apron, fans fire up as EHDV pursues! EHDV ROCKS Omega, but Omega tomahawk chops back! EHDV CHOPS, but Omega CHOPS! EHDV CHOPS back, so Omega BOOTS him! Omega runs in, goes up, and he MONKEY FLIPS EHDV on the apron!

EHDV falls to the floor while fans lose minds over how tight that one was. Omega drags EHDV up to the apron, and he grins as he looks at the table he set up. Omega drags EHDV up, the ref reprimands but Omega full nelsons! EHDV slips free to GAMANGIRI again! EHDV goes up top, balances on the post, and FLYING DRAGONRANAS!! Fans are thunderous as Omega hits the floor! Omega flounders into the ring, EHDV shoves him further in. Fans say “This is Awesome!” as both men go to corners.

EHDV goes to the ropes, stands from the middle and PHOENIX SPLASHES in!!! Cover, TWO?!?! Omega survives by nanoseconds!! Independence is electric as both men rise up! They hope these two “FIGHT FOREVER!” but it has to end somehow! EHDV throws a forearm, a SOBAT, and then he runs to springboard, into a POWERBOMB!! And then another POWERBOMB! Roll through and V-TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO!!!

Omega is furious as EHDV survives! Omega slashes his throat, drags EHDV up, and he full nelsons for a SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Omega snarls, he puts EHDV on the ropes and takes aim. BANG and V-TRIGGER!! But that’s not the end of it! Omega drags EHDV up, deadweight as he is, and Electric Chair Lifts! But EHDV throws down fists! EHDV hops down, UPPERCUTS, then goes up and up to FLYING POISON-RANA!!! Omega tumbles to the apron, and EHDV crawls over to push him onto the table! EHDV builds speed while fans fire up, and he goes up to ESCALARA 630 SENTON through the table!!!!

Independence is volcanic for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” while Callis is freaking out! Both men are down in the wreckage as the ring count starts. EHDV crawls away at 3 of 10, Omega finally stirs at 4. Both men drag themselves up at 6, stand at “OCHO!” And both men slide in at 9! EHDV covers, TWO!!! Omega is still in this and EHDV is beside himself! Fans rally up, both men rise again, and EHDV throws a haymaker! Omega gives it back, they go back and forth, faster and faster! They go forearm for forearm, stand up, and keep throwing shots! EHDV gets the edge, SOBATS, runs, into a V-TRIGGER!!

Omega whips, EHDV rolls up and SUNSET FLIP BOMBS! TWO?!?!? Omega narrowly escapes again and even HE is shocked! But EHDV hurries to a corner and climbs up top! Omega flounders in the drop zone, EHDV 630 SENTONS but FLOPS as Omega moves!! EHDV flounders up, into a V-TRIGGER!!! Omega drags EHDV up, Electric Chair Lifts, ONE WINGED ANGEL!!!! Cover, OMEGA WINS!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall

This was a dream match the moment it was made, but this became an all-time classic by the end! Tony Schiavone joins Callis and Omega in the ring to say this was an incredible match. Omega is back in singles competition, and that was one for the ages! Omega thanks Schiavone for that. The more time goes by, the more he wonders if he can still do this kind of stuff for the fans. Wait, wait! THE BCC JUMPS OMEGA!! Moxley, Claudio & Yuta all mug Omega, and fans boo while Callis can only shout at the ref to stop this! The BCC stand Omega up so they can throw body shots and haymakers!

Fans continue to boo, but wait! Sirens? An ambulance has returned? For who? Wait, HANGMAN is driving it!! The Cowboy has a 2×4, with nails in it! Fans are going nuts for “COWBOY SH*T!” while the BCC stomp away on Omega. But here comes Hangman, wood in hand! The BCC decide to bail! Callis checks on Omega but the damage has been done. Hangman wants Moxley to get his ass back in here, but he stays back. Callis tries to calm Hangman down, but he almost gets 2×4 to the face! Callis keeps pulling at Hangman’s arm to hold him back, but Hangman shakes free and Callis falls right down! Omega comes to, and misunderstands why Callis is down!

Callis blames Hangman but Hangman says he didn’t do anything to Don! Omega and Hangman argue, Callis cowers behind Omega, and Omega takes Callis’ side. Fans boo, but is this just Callis keeping Omega all to himself?

My Thoughts:

A great episode of Dynamite, but it already feels like they’re gonna keep things going until Double or Nothing, no big thing for April. We got a great promo out of the Four Young Pillars, and MJF is making the other three run the #1 contender race like he did Bryan Danielson from now until, I dunno, probably May 3rd so that May can focus on building MJF VS his challenger. Hard to say who it’ll be, but Darby’s off to a good start with that great Six Man Tag. Darby, Sting and Cassidy made an eclectic but great combination, especially with Sting borrowing some Freshly Squeezed tactics. And Cassidy’s International Championship card is open to just about anyone at this point.

Really good tag title match, but I should’ve figured shenanigans would help The Gunns retain. The Kingdom and Top Flight are solidly ROH Tag title contenders with #ReachForTheSky needing teams. Plus, The Gunns’ real story is with FTR, who came back to have a really good promo with them. Gunns VS FTR, Titles VS AEW contracts could honestly go either way. There’s a lot of talk out there of FTR going back to WWE since it’s under HHH right now, so this move could be how FTR exits AEW, but this could also be what guarantees FTR staying. Either way, this is going to be some really big stuff for the titles.

Good promo from Jade and her group, and you do have to appreciate Sterling’s gimmick of bringing about frivolous lawsuits on behalf of people to poke fun at wrestling tropes. The security guards finally got justice, even though they also got crushed by Wardlow, and now finishers that are exactly the same but with different names are being questioned. Pretty sure Leila loses the match and Taya tears up that document, though. Then it’ll be about who hits the chicken wing facebuster first to win that title. Jade has done an amazing job being an undefeated inaugural TBS Champion, but now is the time to move on to someone else so Jade can move on to the top title.

Great segment out of Hook, Stokely and The Firm. Great show from Stokely with trying to weasel out of this, then trying to run away from this, but of course he gets thrown around. Awesome use of spare guard railing, though. I figured Hook VS Ethan was going to be how this wraps up, can’t wait to see how that goes. And I appreciate Starks getting a little meta on the bad pacing of feuds. Starks VS Juice for Rampage, if it happens, will be great stuff, and maybe shenanigans helps Juice win to keep this going. Though, I feel like Starks and Juice could each be doing something better than spinning their wheels with each other. Give me Starks VS Hobbs and Orange VS Juice for those respective titles.

Speaking of which, only the second QTV segment and I’m just done with it. But they did point out the weird logic of Penta not being out there with Fenix last week. Penta VS Hobbs will probably go the same as Fenix VS Hobbs did, and Wardlow will come back for revenge. Also, another wrestling trope that needs poking at: Solo confessed to illegal activities but he won’t get investigated or arrested because it’s wrestling. If Sterling were a Face lawyer, he’d be right on Solo’s ass. But maybe Wardlow beats the crap out of Solo as his punishment, then he gets his shot at Hobbs at Double or Nothing to put this story to rest.

Great promo from Cole and Garcia, and I appreciate they had Garcia have that slip of the tongue. Garcia is of course enjoying the fun side of being a sports entertainer, showing off his personality and just doing whatever shenanigans he wants, but he also clearly enjoys the pro-wrestling stuff of just fighting. Garcia VS Cole is going to be awesome stuff, but Garcia and the JAS also have their story with the House of Black so who knows how the finish goes. Great match out of Storm VS Skye, and Skye looked great even in defeat. Another inconsistency in wrestling logic: Riho & Willow should’ve been ringside to start because they know The Outcasts will be up to no good. But I suppose that does give Riho & Willow their moment of heroism in running the Outcasts off.

I bring up that inconsistency in logic because that match was after Moxley VS Grayson, where both men had their allies ringside. The men can think to bring their boys but the women’s division can’t think to bring their friends along, when we’ve also always seen Britt have Rebel and/or Hayter and vice-versa? Anyway, great stuff out of Moxley VS Grayson, and Grayson also looked awesome even in defeat. The BCC apparently went after everyone Hangman considers a friend, as the Bucks were taken out off-camera by them, and then the BCC jump Grayson.

And then, for being a non-title TV main event, Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo went above and beyond anything I would’ve expected. There were some scary moments, like that Super Steiner counter to the powerbomb. But then again, it wouldn’t feel like an AAA match if there wasn’t some risk like that. BCC jumping Omega after he wins was a good way to keep the Elite reunion story going, but now there’s the new wrinkle of Don Callis wanting Omega to stay a singles star. To be fair, this is very much like the story of Callis, Omega and The Elite when AEW first got started. Callis wants Omega to return to that Omega, and he throws Hangman under the bus.

Another pro-wrestling logic thing is that no one watches the show back when it’s done, unless it helps the story. And I would hope Omega does that here to see what really happened as opposed to just trusting Callis and distrusting Omega. Or if not Omega, the Bucks can. The Bucks will have seen it on TV at the hospital (kayfabe) and The Bucks will tell Omega that Hangman didn’t hit Callis. Callis is also trying to recruit Konosuke, so it’d be great if Callis only comes out of this with one client. If Omega realizes not to trust Callis over The Elite, then Callis and Konosuke can stick together. If Omega still keeps Callis around, Konosuke can reject Callis to stay his own man.

My Score: 8.9/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (3/21/23)

Toni Storm gets Dark!



AEW Dark is on #ToniTime!

The Outcasts have drawn a line in the AEW Women’s Division, and are daring everyone else to cross it! Will Toni Storm strike down another “entitled rookie?”


  • Juice Robinson VS Leon Ruffin; Juice wins.
  • Kiera Hogan VS Leila Grey; Leila wins.
  • The Iron Savages VS The Wingmen; The Iron Savages win.
  • The Renegades VS Avery Breaux & Mafiosa; The Renegades win.
  • Toni Storm VS Billie Starkz; Storm wins.


Another surprisingly short line-up for Dark, with a couple matches that could go either way. The Iron Savages, formerly Bear Country, and the Wingmen will be a good one, but I’m leaning towards Bronson & Boulder winning that. Kiera Hogan VS Leila Grey, former Baddie taking on Jade’s last sidekick standing, could also go either way, but I’m leaning towards Kiera. But it’ll be good to see Robyn & Charlette Renegade get a win here to build that unofficial Women’s Tag Division AEW has.
