PLAY BY PLAY

NXT Champion, Aleister Black, heads to the ring!

The Embodiment of the End fought the Leviathan head-on at TakeOver: Chicago II, and after roughly three Black Mass heel kicks, he won! Now he’s back in Full Sail to say “Adversity and how you deal with it is what defines you as a champion.” The name of adversity for him was Lars Sullivan. Lars Sullivan did something no one thought was possible, and proved himself a freak of nature. But then Aleister made Lars #FadeToBlack. But what’s this? Tommaso Ciampa appears!

The Psycho Killer ignores the fans chanting “You Suck!” as he responds to Aleister. Aleister was face to face with adversity, but now he faces a devil. Aleister can use all the smoke and candles he wants, but Ciampa won’t buy it. Yes, Aleister is champion. But the saying goes, “The title doesn’t make the man, the man makes the title.” Though, perhaps the reverse is true, the title makes Aleister. TakeOver: Chicago was proof, as Aleister barely beat Lars. On the same night, in the real main event, Ciampa beat “Johnny Freakin’ Wrestling”! Fans boo that fact. But not only did Ciampa beat Gargano, he beat him with a hand tied behind his back! And the fairy-tale is now behind him, so that Ciampa can focus on “that shiny little title” of Aleister’s. Aleister has something CIampa wants.

Wow, Ciampa loves to hear himself talk, huh? If William Regal decides to make this match happen, then Ciampa will end up like everyone else, with his lights knocked out. But Ciampa wants Aleister to be careful what he wishes for. There’s a “mystique” to Aleister, but when Ciampa steps in the ring with him, and when Ciampa does win, he’ll lose a lot more than just the title. That mystique will go out like a candle. Ciampa just needs one chance, one moment. Ciampa sits cross-legged like Aleister to say that his moment will make Aleister’s reign #FadeToBlack. Aleister storms out of the ring, but Ciampa heads out, waving good-bye. The Black Heart and the Dutch Destroyer may be on a collision course, but who will survive to be NXT Champion?

 

NXT Media talks with Vanessa Borne.

Vanessa Borne is not worried about things, she knows she’ll be NXT Women’s Champion soon. But she asks them: Why does Kairi Sane dress like a pirate? No one knows, but it’s stupid. ANd what’s worse is that the fans adore and admire Kairi for it. They should admire Vanessa instead. She’s gonna take Kairi into the ring and make sure she doesn’t walk out. Then the face of the Division will be here, Vanessa Borne. The challenge is issued, will Vanessa regret calling out the Pirate Princess?

 

Kona Reeves VS Max Humberto!

The Finest is here, ready to continue his Finest Win Streak. He’s riding high on himself now, but will Kona lose some value in this match tonight?

The bell rings, and Kona circles with Max. They tie up, and Kona backs Max up. They go to ropes, and Kona slaps Max out of the ropebreak. Max gets mad and rushes Kona, only for Kona to arm-drag him down. Max backs off while Kona says “That’s why I’m the Finest!” They tie up again, Kona gets a headlock. Max pries at the hold but Kona spins around and gets the takedown. Max tries to get out while fans rally. They stand up, and Max fights back with body shots. He powers out but Kona snapmares in return. Kona kicks then throws Max right out of the ring!

Kona fetches Max and bumps him off the apron. He then positions Max for a haymakers on the apron. They both go in the ring and Kona puts Max in a corner. Kona stomps and stomps, then backs off at 4. Kona butterfly suplexes Max up, then climbs up for the Finest Elbow. He grinds Max’s face into the mat, but he backs off at 4. Max fights back, runs, dodges, but still gets the Finest Boot! Kona lifts Max, for the Hawaiian Drop! Cover, Kona wins!

Winner: Kona Reeves, by pinfall

The Finest keeps on winning, and keeps growing in ego. Will he win to become the Finest contender? Or will that ego be his Finest downfall?

 

Lacey Evans VS Candice LeRae!

The Lady of NXT continues her mission to straighten out and class-up NXT’s Women’s Division, and now she moves on to Mrs. Wrestling! Will Lacey exercise her Woman’s Right on Candice’s jaw? Or will she be taken for Ms. LeRae’s Wild Ride instead?

The fans are strongly on Candice’s side as she and Lacey circle. They tie up, and Lacey gets the headlock. Candice powers out but Lacey runs her over. Cover, ONE, so Lacey runs again and runs Candice over again. Lacey fakes concern, but then Candice trips her. Candice runs but into a modified drop toehold. Cover, ONE, and Lacey grows frustrated. Lacey runs but into an arm-drag! And another, and even a Japanese variant! Candice dropkicks, cover, TWO! Candice brings Lacey up but Lacey shoves her to a corner. Lacey runs in but Candice puts her on the apron. Lacey grabs hair, then an arm, to kick it over the ropes. She sweeps the legs to then swing the arm into the post!

Candice writhes and crawls away, but Lacey is on her with a cover. TWO, so Lacey grabs the arm to grind her knee on it like a saw blade. Fans rally and Candice stands. Lacey wrenches and kicks the arm, then brings Candice down again. Lacey drops knees on the arm, then covers, TWO. Candice gets free but Lacey looms over her. Lacey brings Candice up, Candice rolls Lacey up, TWO! Lacey throws Candice down with an arm-wringer! Candice gets to ropes, then a corner. Lacey won’t let up, she stands Candice to wrap that arm on the rope. The ref warns her, but Lacey still climbs up to use leverage and gravity against that arm. Lacey lets go at 4, then runs in for the swinging bronco buster! Cover, TWO, and Lacey grows annoyed with Candice.

Lacey sits Candice up for a cobra clutch, but Candice reaches for ropes. Fans rally again, and Candice stands. Lacey wrangles Candice down with a pull of the hair. Candice endures the clutch more, and fans rally again. Candice stands up, arm-drags Lacey off, then throws back elbows. She snapmares and neck snaps Lacey, but she keeps going, hitting another dropkick. Both women are down but fans rally up. Lacey crawls to ropes while Candice slowly stands. Candice rocks Lacey with forearm after forearm! Then chop and forearm, repeat! Candice fires off in a corner, then goes corner to corner for the back elbow. She snapmares Lacey, then climbs up, flying bulldog! Candice isn’t done there, and she drags Lacey up while fans cheer. She turns Lacey over for Unprettier! Then, LIONSAULT! Cover, Candice wins!

Winner: Candice LeRae, by pinfall

Mrs. Wrestling is back on top! She’s got a long way to go, but can she find herself competing for the NXT Women’s Championship?

 

Backstage interview with Johnny Gargano.

Johnny Wrestling is proud of his wife, but he has his own issues still to deal with. How is he feeling after Chicago? Candice is his favorite wrestler, but he keeps thinking about his most hated wrestler. Gargano watched it back for himself, and he actually got to see Ciampa take that ring off Gargano’s finger, spit on it, then throw it away… AND win!? Gargano won’t let Ciampa win. This is far from over. Gargano and Ciampa are tied, so Gargano will ask Regal this goes “one more time”. It doesn’t matter where, when or how, “this ends when he does.”

However, GM William Regal has heard this and responds via his own Twitter:

Gargano isn’t getting Ciampa, no matter how badly he wants the Psycho Killer. Instead, he gets EC3 in a high-caliber match. Can Gargano keep himself preoccupied with the Top One Percent? Or will EC3 continue to make this show #NX3 with #VictoryAfterVictoryAfterVictory?

 

Heavy Machinery speaks.

Otis Dozovic is fueling up to steamroll The Mighty, so he needs four hot links! Tucker Knight says that when Nick Miller & Shane Thorne cheated to win, they stole from Heavy Machinery. And what happens to people who steal? They started this, but Heavy Machinery will end this. “The Mighty, we’re comin’!!” No more fun and games. The Mighty Don’t Kneel, but will they be flattened?

 

Backstage interview with Candice LeRae.

Congrats are in order, but how does she feel about her husband’s obsession? She knows it’s distracting, but she’s learned from the past. She can’t let Gargano’s career distract her from hers. Candice is concerned for Gargano, but this is about her right now. Gargano’s drive is inspiring, so Candice will stop at nothing to become NXT Women’s Champion.

 

Mustache Moutain VS Dave Dixon & Carl Axelrod!

The Undisputed Era took on Trent Seven & Tyler Bate on in their home turf, and lost! The new champions return to Full Sail ready for action! Their opponents are excited to have this opportunity, up until the get jumped by the Undisputed Era!

Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong stomp away on Dixon & Axelrod, and then toss them off the stage. SUPERKICK to Backbreaker finishes Dixon, and clearly the scheduled match isn’t happening.

O’Reilly says that Royal Albert Hall match was a fluke! The only reason Mustache Mountain competes so well is that they’ve been held up by their entire “dumpy” country! Strong adds that Mustache Mountain are phonies! But with no other “UK Dorks” here to help, they won’t waste time. Cole says that the Undisputed Era is going to make sure when these two fly home, they’ll leave without their pride or those belts! This is their era, everyone else just lives in it. But seeing this 3v2 scenario, The One & Only Ricochet appears to even the numbers!

The King of Flight handsprings to back Cole and the others off! He may not be from the UK, but Ricochet isn’t going to let the Undisputed Era do what they want. We go to break while things sort themselves out.

Six Man Tag: The Undisputed Era VS Ricochet & Mustache Mountain!

Naturally, the only way to go about this was to have a tag match! Can the King of Flight help the new NXT Tag Team Champions steer away the former champions in this last-minute match?

The bell rings and Bate starts against O’Reilly. They circle and tie up. O’Reilly gets the waistlock but Bate pops out to wrench the wrist. O’Reilly reverses to a drop toehold, then wrenches the wrist again. Bate rolls, flips and dropkicks O’Reilly down! Strong rushes in but he gets a dropkick, too. Bate then arm-drags O’Reilly into an armlock. O’Reilly flounders but Bate wrenches his arm. Bate tags in Seven, and Seven chops O’Reilly. Seven lifts O’Reilly, then uses him as a weapon when Cole rushes in. Bate tags in, then Ricochet tags in while Seven dumps O’Reilly down. Bate hops up, and knee-board sentons onto O’Reilly! Then Ricochet does the same onto Cole! Ricochet dares Strong to come in, but Strong stays away.

Fans rally as Ricochet tags in Seven. Seven puts O’Reilly into the wristlock and swings him out, but O’Reilly blocks the lariat into a shoulder breaker. O’Reilly brings Seven over and tags in Cole. Cole goes after Seven but Seven pushes him away. Seven blocks the kick to give a SHARP chop. Then another, then fakes another to hit the DDT! Cover, TWO, but Seven keeps on Cole. He brings Cole over, Bate tags in. Mustache Mountain work together but Cole fights out. Cole runs, but into the scoop slam! Strong managed to tag in, but he just runs into a scoop slam from Bate! Seven and Bate work together, for the boosted senton! Tag to Ricochet, and Ricochet takes O’Reilly out for good measure. Bate helps Ricochet now, and Ricochet gets the full rotation on that moonsault! Cover on Strong, TWO!

Ricochet drags Strong up and brings him over, Bate tags in. Bate throws hands, then elbows, but Strong knees and clubs back. Strong whips but Bate goes up and under to Bop, and BANG! Cole runs in, sees Bop but still swings. Bate ducks, and comes back with BANG! O’Reilly returns, sees Bop and swings more, but Bate dodges it all to still hit BANG! Fans are fired up for the inaugural UK Champion. Strong lifts Bate but Bate slips out. O’Reilly distracts while Strong shoves Bate. Bate goes to rebound but Cole gets a sucker kick in! Bate is dazed, half-nelson backbreaker! Tag to Cole, and Cole stomps away on Bate. Cole drags Bate up to put him in the corner. He stomps away on Bate, then tags in O’Reilly. O’Reilly drags Bate up for kicks and strikes. He backs off to mock the mustaches, then stomps more.

Tag to Strong and Strong mugs Bate before giving a SHARP chop of his own. Strong drags Bate up into a half camel clutch. Bate endures while fans rally. Strong turns it into a half-straitjacket, but Bate still endures. Bate powers up, arm-drags out, but Strong dropkicks him down! Cover, TWO, so Strong drags him over. Cole tags in, and drops the elbows and knees. He drags Bate back up, snap suplex and float-over, TWO. Cole puts Bate in a chinlock, but fans still rally. Bate fights out again, then runs, but into a back elbow! Cole drags Bate back over, O’Reilly tags in and he goes right after Bate’s arm. O’Reilly drops ax handles and drives in knees, then pulls back on the mustache itself! He drags Bate up with a guillotine, then tags Strong.

The Undisputed Era continue to mug Bate, then Strong scoops Bate up for a shoulder breaker on his knee! Strong sits Bate up for a keylock, but Bate endures. Fans rally up again, and Bate feeds off the energy. Bate stands, fights back, but Strong hits back with elbows. Strong runs in, but into a knee! Bate reaches but Strong swings on him, so Bate gets him with an Exploder!

Both men are down and everyone fires up. Strong and Bate crawl, hot tags to O’Reilly and Ricochet! Ricochet rallies on everyone, tripping Cole just because. Ricochet gets O’Reilly with headscissors! Strong and Cole come in but Ricochet fights them both off, then feeds Cole into Strong for the leaping neckbreaker and DDT combo! Ricochet runs in at O’Reilly for the uppercut and haymaker. He keeps going, bumping O’Reilly on buckles to then hit a corner 619! Ricochet springboards for a flying uppercut! Cover, TWO! O’Reilly survives but Ricochet nods as he has control.

Fans chant as Ricochet brings O’Reilly up. O’Reilly fights back but ends up in a Northern Lights. TWO, into the guillotine and body scissors! O’Reilly wrenches on Ricochet, but Ricochet powers up. Ricochet walks over, and tags in Seven! Seven comes in, and pries O’Reilly off with a full-nelson. O’Reilly breaks out and hits a forearm, but Seven SMACKS O’Reilly with that backhand! Seven suplexes for the side slam, covers, TWO! Seven can’t believe it, but he coordinates with Bate. But O’Reilly anchors Seven’s foot while Cole trips Bate off the apron! Seven kicks O’Reilly, then drags him up, but O’Reilly breaks free to kick the leg. Tag to Strong, then tag to Cole.

Strong corner knee smashes, then feeds Seven to Cole’s Ushigoroshi! O’Reilly adds the Penalty Kick! Cover from Cole, but both Bate & Ricochet break it! Strong & O’Reilly throw them out, but Bate & Ricochet then drag those two out for brawls at ringside. Cole targets Seven, and pulls down the knee pad. He wants Seven to sit up, then runs… But into the Seven Star Lariat! Both men are down, but Seven crawls for his corner. Hot tag to Ricochet! Ricochet goes after Cole, fireman’s carry to Samoan Driver! But O’Reilly breaks the cover. Strong takes out Seven with a knee, but Bate takes him out with a rolling kick! O’Reilly knees Bate, then gives him an Ax ‘n’ Smash! Ricochet grabs O’Reilly, then spins him around for a BIG lariat! SUPERKICK from Cole to Ricochet! PELE from Ricochet to Cole!

Everyone is down but the fans are loving it. Fans chant “NXT! NXT!” while the legal men stir. The others stand on the aprons and brawl. It’s three brawls at once! Back and forth all three pairs go, until O’Reilly wipes Bate out with a flying knee and Strong drops Seven with an apron back suplex! In the ring, Cole rocks Ricochet, but runs into the somersault lariat. Strong & O’Reilly come in for Strong Elimination, but Ricochet back-flips through it! Ricochet gives a boot to Strong, a boot to O’Reilly, then a boot to Cole, before a leaping complete shot. Ricochet hurries to a corner, then climbs up top, for the 630 senton!! Cover, but O’Reilly drags Cole out! O’Reilly sees Ricochet glaring at him, and then Ricochet DIVES on him! Only to get X-Plex’d on the apron from Strong! Strong feeds Ricochet to Cole’s cover, Undisputed Era win!!

Winners: The Undisputed Era, Cole pinning

The numbers go the way of the true trio, leaving Ricochet and Mustache Mountain down for the count. Cole, Strong & O’Reilly take their leave, triumphant together again. Will Strong & O’Reilly win when they get their NXT Tag Team Championship rematch? Or will Mustache Mountain win like they did in the UK?

 


 

My Thoughts:

This was a great NXT, and it felt so fast. We open with a good promo segment, where Ciampa stakes his claim as the next contender. Ciampa VS Aleister is going to be great, and honestly, with how crafty and cruel Ciampa can be, that match could go either way. Obviously Gargano wants more revenge on Ciampa, and this could be the way to bring the title into their feud so that when Gargano wins out (and I’m sure he will), Gargano gets both satisfaction and a championship reign before going to main. Candice herself gets a good win, and I’m sure as she said in her promo, she’ll stay out of Gargano’s story. She’s already played her part and doesn’t need to complicate it.

Interesting to see Vanessa Borne be the next woman to call Kairi Sane out. While Lacey Evans’ gimmick is meant to question the look and personality of others, I don’t get why Vanessa and others have to mock Kairi’s gimmick. They should realize the look doesn’t matter when Kairi won the Mae Young Classic. Kairi is gonna win this feud pretty easy, too. Kona Reeves wins again, big whoop. What I want to know is why Max was being called “Humberto” when his tights clearly read “Castello”. NXT still does the same weird stuff WWE does with making up names for jobbers. Heavy Machinery seems to be taking a cue from The Mighty and, at least in personality, they’re getting meaner. War Raiders already squashed Thorne & Miller, so maybe Thorne & Miller win this one just so they stay afloat in the NXT Tag Team Division.

Speaking of the tag team division, that was a great set-up to the “impromptu” main event. Dixon & Axelrod get the rare jobber entrance, so obviously they weren’t long for this episode. And then I was delightfully surprised Ricochet was the one coming to the rescue, but it all made for a great combination. I was still delightfully surprised The Undisputed Era won, and not clean. They Heel it up really well tonight, and with Cole pinning Ricochet, this could even set up an NXT North American Championship program. That match can also go either way, but it’d be better if it ends clean.

My Score: 8.5/10

Andrew’s TNA iMPACT! Results & Match Ratings: 6.13.2024

The ultimate Go Home! We are one day away from Against All Odds and The System goes to the Hardy Compound for a face off!

Published

on

Against All Odds is tomorrow night, so we see how this Go Home show is structured to get there. We also get a Hardy Compound segment in TNA for the first time in what…6 years? I’m not fact checking time frames, just been a long damn time.

A few matches to set the table for the TNA+ Event and looks like about 3 Knockouts matches. So fans of women’s wrestling should enjoy this episode.

Ratings:

  • Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana: Santana wins via Spin the Block – ***
  • Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay: Marti wins via Roll-Up – **
  • Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson: Dani wins via Luna Landing – ** 1/2
  • ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone: ASH wins via Rarefied Air – **
  • The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth): Nemeths win via Maverick – *** 1/4

 

Results:

Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana

Santana comes out second and immediately double legs Wentz as soon as he hits the ring, bullies him a little and then starts chasing Trey around so Wentz can recover and land a Moonsault on Santana. Codebreaker into a Running Shooting Star for a near fall from Wentz. Wentz slowly things down with the headlock, even though he’s the quicker guy, so that doesn’t make sense. Santana fires back a little but WEntz counters and starts choking him on the ropes. Referee backs him off so Trey gets involved. Wentz with some attempted control moves, standing switches from both leads to both heading to the ropes, Santana shakes off Wentz and hits the Rolling Buck Fifty! Dive takes out both Rascalz after Wentz powders, bullying in the corner, Wentz tries to pop out but Santana catches him in a fluid pop Death Valley Driver and near fall.

Wentz manages to duck the Spin the Block, counter the next move and connect on his strike combo. Swanton Bomb from Wentz, but only 2! Superkick from Wentz, attempted UFO Cutter, but it turns into trading Push Kicks, Enzuigiris and then a Jumping DDT from Wentz! Wentz feigns injury, Trey tries to interfere but Maclin makes the save. Wentz goes for his Back Handspring Jumping Knee but Santana times the Spin the Block perfectly. Levels Wentz and picks up the win!

Tom has an interview with Mustafa Ali and it just cements his delusional politician thing. Not really a ton beyond Ali is ignoring facts and continuing his schtick.

Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay

Ahh yelling at each other in Spanish and Russian, so no one understand the other and Masha grabs Marti’s head and pulls her down. They start a little chain wrestling with Arm Wringers and World of Sport counters. Bad Drop Toe Hold because Marti slowed down too much and it made the move look fake as hell. But at least the next few moves from both connect a little harder, Marti distracts the ref and Allysin makes her presence felt.

Running Forearm drops Masha in the corner, Hip attack from Marti gives her a near fall. Masha retreats to the corner, Marti tries to go back to the well but Masha has great counters. Slips through her legs, Up Kick, Yakuza Kick, Waterwheel Kick, all beautiful strikes for a near fall. Marti tries to use the ropes in a dirty Roll-Up but the referee sees it, Allysin jumps up, Masha attacks her and then another Roll-Up from Marti with Allysin assisting from the outside for the win.

https://x.com/i/status/1801412311061516750

Why is Xia so perfect in this adorable supportive friend character? I really hate enjoying this wrinkle from Xia…god dammit.

PCO saw AJ Francis take the rose from SDL, so he jumps them during their interview with Gia. PCO just wants the rose back, very Young Frankenstein vibes, and I’m not mad at this so far. 

Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson

Collar and Elbow tie up that goes from corner to corner and Tasha leans into the ropes for the break. Rope run, Tasha Leap Frogs Dani and then connects with a Sole Butt. Tasha tries to go for something in the corner, but Dani just throws her halfway across the ring and connects with a Sliding Lariat Ishii style. Tasha connects on a kick, takes entirely too long showboating and Dani counters into a Falcon Arrow for 2.

Dani misses in the corner, Tasha tries to follow up but eats a forearm and retreats to the apron. Dani tries to Suplex her outside in, but Tasha counters, uses the ropes to her advantage and Dani eats a PK to the face. Near fall gets followed up by a Headbutt from Tasha, then she chokes Dani on the ropes, Dani tries to fight back but another Headbutt drops Dani. Dani tries to fight back again, but eats a Codebreaker from Tasha for yet another near fall. Forward rolling Snapmare into PK but Dani grabs her leg and goes for a flash Roll-Up only for 2. Forearm strike exchange, Tasha gets the best of things with a Knee Lift, tries to hit the ropes but Dani lays in a few Lariats and then…I don’t know. Both go for a Single Leg Dropkick and its just…ugly. Dumb spot and the stutter steps telegraphed a goofball spot.

Dani is the first one back up, a few quick strikes and another Single Leg Dropkick gives Dani the advantage but Tasha blocks the follow up, tries a Cradle, but no dice. Powerbomb from Dani for 2. Luna Landing attempt, but the eye rake into the Rope Assisted Bulldog, but Dani counters, Tasha hits the Shiranui, only for 2. Tasha tries the Rings of Saturn, but Dani gets her foot on the ropes. Tasha with chops and headbutt combos, but Dani hits the Rebound Blue Thunder Bomb for a two! Dani tries to psyche up, Luna Landing gets turned into a Frankensteiner from Tasha, but Dani blocks, then blocks the Okurrr, transitions it into the Luna Landing and Dani wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801418226976358888

Frankie makes a Megadeth reference now with Kill the King. So I’m not angry now, or angry again.

The Hardy Compound thing…I have no words for it. It was definitely goofier than the previous TNA ones (which is saying something when Rockstar Spud lost a match to a child), but it was kinda fun. 

ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone

ASH goes back to the kiss the hand aspect of her persona, then stomps into the enhancement talent. Rosemary lurking in the shadows and just watching the match is odd, but ASH is back to getting her character over. ASH gets cocky, eats a quick Dropkick, ASH powders, complains to the Concierge, but when Jada dives…ASH catches her nicely with the Forearm to the face. Two near falls, and then ASH just unloads in frustration.

Cartwheel Back Elbow from ASH, Jada cuts off the next move, tries to string together some offense but ASH say nope. A little struggle, Jada connects on a kick to the face, Moonsault, but ASH gets the knees up, Lariat into Rarefied Air, and ASH wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801426643694616707

The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth)

Bey starts, its a very respectful double Babyface team style of start. Some counter wrestling, then Bey asks for Nic to tag in, and some playing jawing, but nothing seems to be crossing lines. And no offense is really worth discussing, just basic stuff, playful taunts and giving each other space to tag out. When Ace tags in, he’s a bit more business minded, doesn’t toy with taunts and just rolls under a Lariat, kicks the back of the knees, takes Nic down, throws an Arm Wringer into a Hammerlock and tries to stay on top of Nic. Nic with a desperation spin out into the Release Northern Lights counter. Ace tags out, Bey Double Stomps Nic’s back and keep him isolated. Nic tries to fight back a few times but Bey cuts off the comeback, Nic even just tries to scuttle past Bey, but can’t get to Ryan in time.

Headlock Suplex from Ace after Bey tags him in, to continue the isolation. Coordinated tagging in and out from the ABC, keeps Nic completely isolated. When they comeback from the commercial is probably when Nic will make the comeback and tag out. But those 3 minutes…rough isolation days. Rebound Tandem Overhead Arm Drag, into a Double PK from ABC. Nic is connecting with a few Rabbit Punches, but a Dropkick from Bey stifles the attempt at momentum. Bey tags out to Ace, kick to the ribs into a High Angle Backdrop, and then a Headscissors Chokehold. Nic slowly turns through the Headscissors, gets back to his feet, but gets shoved into the ABC corner. Jumping Snap Kick from Ace, into the jump off teammate Flying Uppercut attack. Bey shoves Nic back into the corner, goes for another attack but crashes and burns, a small struggle to stop Nic, but Nic gets free and Ryan with the hot tag.

Flying Shoulder Tackle into a Rude Awakening for 2 on Bey! Nic tags himself back in, tries a Cutter, blocked, Back Slide, but no, Fame ASSER for 2! Arm Wringer control for the Nemeth side now, tags back in Ryan for some Dosie Doe Wringers into a Double Clothesline. Rope runs, both miss and then Double Lariat stereo tags spot. Ace has early control of the stereo tag, Russian Leg Sweep into Click Click Boom. Ryan tries to run interreference but eats a Leaping Bulldog. Nic tries something and then eats a Triangle Kick from Ace for 2! Nic eats a Double Knee to the face, then the Spike Brainbuster, but Ryan breaks up the pinfall! Jumping DDT on Ace, Cutter from Bey on Ryan and then Nic comes to long enough to hit a Superkick as everyone lays on the mat.

Superkick is blocked by Ace, Roll-Up, no, Face Stomp, near fall and Ace keeps searching for how to win. Tags in Bey, 1-2-Sweet, but Ryan picks Ace’s foot from outside. Ace tries a Plancha on Ryan, but Ryan just slides in the ring to avoid the attack. Ryan lands a Jumping Flatliner and Nic with Danger Zone for the win!

 

Overall Score: 5/10

I mean, for all intents and purposes this show did kind of what it was supposed to. It got across some stories, it set things up for tomorrow,  but the show was paced a little slow. The some spots were clunky, some matches felt necessary but unwanted…and the Hardy Compound thing was…interesting. It really depends on your tolerance for campy and silly. This one was more Scooby Doo than the previous ones, Eddie turned into a legit Werewolf, Reby beheaded Alisha, Myers got laid out by a skeleton and Maxell and Broken Matt allowed Moose to regain the power of 69. If you go in expecting references and fun, this was good. If you go in expecting some kind of twisted mystical puzzlebox…you’re gonna have a bad time.

The main event was a pretty damn good TV main event though. Things are set up a little awkwardly for the PPV, but I guess we’ll have to see how it plays out. Also curious if Tatum Paxley is gonna answer Jordynne’s open challenge or if they go a different route.

Billie storms back after Moone, whips corner to corner, but Moone stops herself! Moone ELBOWS Billie down, then hurries up on her.

Billie trips Moone, rains down furious forearms, but the ref reprimands Billie on how she’s holding Moone down by her neck! Billie tells the ref not to tell her what to do!

Moone blocks, but gets the REBOUND ENZIGIRI! Moone is down, Billie goes up, but Moone rises! SHORYUKEN! Moone climbs up, brings Billie up, but Billie fights with body shots!

Shane Taylor & Lee Moriarty VS Nick Comoroto & Jacoby Watts!

Shane Taylor Promotions plans to tear through anyone and everyone in their way to the top of both ROH and AEW. Will they do just that here tonight? Or will HE, Jacoby, finally lead the Wrecking Ball to a victory?

Comoroto starts for his team, as he has before, and offers a handshake for the Code of Honor. Lee Moriarty starts and just gets in Comoroto’s face. Comoroto does his best to smile and shrug that off, and the two circle. They feel things out, but Lee KICKS a leg. Comoroto shrugs that off, too, and the two circle more. Fans chant “S, T, P! S, T, P!” Lee KICKS, applauds, and dares Comoroto to take a swing. Comoroto does, Lee avoids it, but then Comoroto blocks a kick! So Lee KNEES free! Lee fires up, runs, and forearms Comoroto, but Comoroto HEADBUTTS Lee down! Comoroto applauds and the fans join in.

Comoroto trophy lifts Lee, does some quick pumps, then SLAMS Lee down! Tag to Jacoby and this is the first time we’ve seen him do anything in weeks!

And HE is ME.” The fans boo instead. Jacoby goes back to Lee, puts him in, and tags Comoroto. Wow, that was all? Comoroto wrenches Lee, Lee kicks free, and he tags in Shane! The fans fire up for Big Bad Shaney T. Boy, and he steps to Comoroto. Shane SLAPS Comoroto!

Shane nods, runs, and RAMS Comoroto! “MEAT!” Comoroto RAMS back! “MEAT!” Shane JABS, eggs Comoroto on, so Comoroto runs in! Shane throws Comoroto out! Jacoby encourages Comoroto, and the fans fire up, too! Comoroto skins the cat! But then Shane is there, to bob ‘n’ weave and HEADBUTT! And URENAGE! And SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Comoroto is still in this but Shane tags Lee. Lee runs to BOOT Jacoby, but that upsets Comrooto! Comoroto CLOBBERS Lee, BLASTS Shane, then scoops Lee!

Comoroto spins and SLAMS Lee, runs up and JUMP ELBOW DROPS! The fans fire up with Comoroto, and he says “Save us, Jacoby~!” Comoroto runs in at the corner to SPLASH, then Jacoby tags in! POWERSLAM, Jacoby takes the pin, TWO!! Lee survives because Jacoby took too long, and now Jacoby tags Comoroto back in. Lee runs up to SHOTGUN Jacoby! Comoroto is mad again, and he scoops Lee. Lee slips free, tags Shane, and then baits Comoroto in! BUCKLE SHOT! Shane waits on Comoroto to get up, and then KNOCKOUT PUNCH! Cover, STP wins!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

Lee takes Jacoby’s cowboy hat to do a dance, then throws it away. Will ROH soon belong to STP from top to bottom?

 

Johnny TV & Taya Valkyrie speak.

La Wera Loca says over the course of the last year and a half, yes, she has had wins and losses, faced some of the best women in the world, and has nothing but respect for each and every one. But one is just… getting under her skin! Queen Aminata~! Queen? So she gave herself a crown? You can’t do that! Aminata’s not a real queen! Taya earned the iconic title of Reina De Reinas (Queen of Queens), earned the nickname “Ratings Queen,” and earned the nickname, “The Main Character.” Aminata is a fraud! And quite annoying. So it doesn’t matter that Aminata beat Taya in the tournament, this is a warning.

Taya will wipe that smug smile off Aminata’s face, and kick that ass off her throne! Watch your back. Johnny says nice one. Mr. & Mrs. TV are ready, but will Aminata just have to beat Taya again?

ROH World Tag Team Championships Proving Grounds: The Kingdom VS Bad Dude Tito & Che Cabrera!

Matt Taven & Mike Bennett are the only ones in the Undisputed Kingdom still holding gold, and they’ve gotta put in the work to prove they’re still worthy. Will they make sure ROH stays their kingdom? Or will the #WolfZaddies be howling to the moon as they take a bite out of the champs?

The teams sort out, Mike starts against Tito and the Code of Honor is kept. The bell rings, we’re on the clock, and Tito is all fired up. They tie up, Mike headlocks, but Tito squeezes tight before he powers out. Mike RAMS Tito, Tito asks if that’s all he’s got. Mike ROCKS Tito and headlocks him! Tito powers up to lift Mike, then powers out of the headlock. They RAM shoulders again, and Mike says okay. Try this! CHOP! Tito CHOPS back!

Taven goes up, Mike reels Tito in, HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall (denies the Wolf Zaddies a title opportunity)

Taven says this belt is his girl, he makes love to it every night! No one takes Taven’s girl from him! Mike says it doesn’t matter who you put against them, The Kingdom IS the best tag team in the world! But will there come a time when a tag team does come along and takes these titles away from them? Or will these titles always be undisputed?


My Thoughts:

A very good ROH here with it clocking in at an hour and 11 minutes. Surprisingly little on the promo side, with just Taya calling out Aminata for a match. Taya will definitely lose to build Aminata up towards her title match with Athena, which probably happens at Death Before Dishonor. Billie and Velvet each have momentum going into their inevitable TV title match, and it was great to see Moone back after her tournament appearance. And good Six Woman Tag, real good teamwork from the Heels in getting the win. Also, didn’t realize until double checking on Windsor’s finisher name, she is Will Ospreay’s wife, the “missus” he refers to so often.

Good tag match from Shane Taylor Promotions VS Comoroto & Watts, and of course STP won out. The whole story of Comoroto & Watts is their dysfunction because Watts puts himself above everything. But I do like that Watts is getting more and more involved as the weeks go by, so maybe at some point, Watts actually does do something meaningful in a match. Maybe. I’m a bit surprised Adora lost to Harley but I suppose Harley’s been losing plenty on AEW, she has to get something at some point.

Great stuff in the Trios Fatal 4. Castle joining up with The Infantry was certainly fun, but I was a little surprised Action & Top Flight won. This does help them keep pace with Shane Taylor Promotions as that rivalry gets going via AEW, but I thought Dark Order was gonna be the ones to get going again. Well, there’s still time before Death Before Dishonor, so they can hold many other matches to determine #1 contenders. And while The Wolf Zaddies got a good showing against The Kingdom, of course The Kingdom won the Proving Grounds match. The story, slow moving as it is, will of course be Menard & Parker getting their shot, probably at Death Before Dishonor, and there’s still a good chance The Kingdom retains. Depends on if TK cares about The Undisputed Kingdom’s story where Adam Cole wants Wardlow to protect all their titles. Feels like that moment passed, to be honest.

My Score: 8.6/10
