Backstage interview with Oney Lorcan.

With the NXT Tag Division being stacked as ever, does Lorcan feel he and Burch are worthy of being #1 contenders? Of course, he and Burch have shown everyone- Oh, speaking of Burch, he walks in having just gotten off the phone with Johnny Saint. Saint just told him that the One Two Combination is getting a shot at the NXT UK Tag Team Championships when the brands collide in Phoenix! Them against the Grizzled Young Veterans, they’ll slap the taste out of their mouths. Phoenix means the Grizzled Young Veterans’ first defense will be their last. Will the One Two get the one-two-three and shock both tag divisions?

 

Backstage interview with Pete Dunne.

What does the Bruiserweight make of Walter’s arrival in NXT UK? Dunne was impressed, and knows Walter will come for the title. But when that happens, Walter will learn why Dunne has been the champion for over 600 days. It’s because Dunne fears no one. Will that still be true when the Austrian Anomaly gets through with Mark Coffey tonight?

 

Xia Brookside VS Candy Floss!

The second-generation superstar returns and is ready to fly, but will she get a serious fight from her sugary sweet opponent?

The bell rings and the two young stars circle. They shake hands and show respect before they tie up. Xia gets a headlock and takedown but Candy headscissor counters.

Xia fires forearms but Rhea tosses her with a flapjack! Rhea goes back to Candy to throw her out hard! Fans boo and jeer as Rhea kicks Xia around, then puts on the hanging cloverleaf! Rhea swings Xia around, but here comes Toni Storm!

The NXT UK Women’s Champion throws hands with the Mosh Pit Kid! And rocks her with a headbutt! Xia gets up but Rhea uses her as a shield for Toni’s second headbutt! Rhea then scoops Toni into the Riptide! The former champion will get her rematch in Phoenix, but she’s sent a major message to the entire division in Blackpool! Will Rhea rip that title away from Toni? Or will the Lightning from Down Under strike twice?

 

Jordan Devlin speaks.

“This is the Irish Ace, Jordan Devlin, and I have been running roughshod over the entire NXT UK roster for the past few months.” And with NXT UK going to Phoenix, the Ace wants to represent and make a statement. He chooses a guy who came over to UK, had some matches, then left “with his tail between his legs.” Devlin calls out Noam Dar! The Scottish Supernova is going to find out personally why you #NeverBetAgainstTheAce.

 

Mike Hitchman VS Joseph Conners!

The Wild Boar of Wales never backs down from a fight, but will he think twice after facing the Righteous Killer?

The bell rings and Conners ties up with Boar. They go around and Conners clubs away on Boar at the ropes. Conners stomps Boar down, backs off at 4, but comes back for more. The referee backs Conners down but Conners whips Boar. Boar reverses and runs Conners over! Boar goes after Conners in the corner with punches! But Conners slips out and trips Boar up.

Fans fire up for Boar and he runs corner to corner again, but into a boot. Conners goes up but Boar headbutts him! Boar climbs to join Conners but Conners clubs him back. Conners sunset flip powerbombs him once, then sunset flip buckle bombs Boar in the opposite corner! And Conners isn’t done there, he drags Boar out to say, Don’t Look Down! Cover, Conners wins!

Winner: Joseph Conners, by pinfall

Conners gets through with one “shiny new toy”, but his personal crusade is far from over! Who else will he target on his way to the top?

 

Gallus warms up backstage.

Joe Coffey is ready to take out Ashton Smith, and he knows Mark will take care of Walter tonight. Wolfgang will get his shot at Pete Dunne next week, too, and soon, they’ll truly make NXT UK their Kingdom! And that is simply Gallus.

 

Backstage interviwe with Jinny.

The Fashionista tells Radzi he needs to improve his wardrobe to make up for his hideous face. Her “advice” aside, Radzi asks Jinny about her string of wins and how the Division looks to her. Well of course she won, she’s a queen. But her own amazing talent aside, there are plenty of talented superstars around. Jinny congratulates Toni Storm. Toni’s only 23 but is one of the best women wrestlers in the world. However, she also gets in Jinny’s way every single time. But regardless of Toni VS Rhea in Phoenix, everyone knows it’s only a matter of time before NXT UK’s true queen is crowned. The Fashionista will have her own crossover match with Mia Yim! Will Jinny defeat the Head Baddie in Charge to secure her title shot in the UK?

 

Ashton Smith VS Joe Coffey!

Manchester’s Prestige has a big opportunity against the Iron King tonight, but will he make good on it in Blackpool? Or will Coffey be too gallus for the young gun?

The bell rings and Joe speeds things up right away. He and Ashton go around the ring as fans cheer “Woop!” for Ashton. They tie up, Ashton gets a headlock, and he holds on as Coffey tries to power out. Coffey gets free but Ashton dodges to get the headlock back on. Coffey powers out again, goes parallel and pounces Ashton out! Ashton is reeling from that truly gallus tackle, but Coffey doesn’t give him time to rest. Coffey punches then SPEARS Ashton into barriers! Coffey wants everyone to see that this is still his kingdom! He drags Ashton up and into the ring, then rains down left hands. Coffey rams a knee into Ashton’s back then puts on a nerve hold! Coffey makes it half straitjacket but Ashton endures. Fans rally up as Coffey makes it a full straitjacket.

Ashton stands up and gets an arm free, but Coffey wrenches back and rams his knee in again. Coffey grinds Ashton back down and makes the hold a cobra clutch now. Ashton claws at Coffey’s hold but Coffey shouts in his ear, “STILL my kingdom!” Coffey thrashes Ashton about but Ashton fights his way up. Fans rally as Ashton powers the hold off, but Coffey reels him out. Ashton runs but into a bearhug! Coffey rams Ashton into buckles, then more buckles, then throws him down. Coffey clubs Ashton down, then shoves him for a forearm on the rebound. Fans boo and jeer as Coffey keeps trash talking. Ashton hits back but Coffey knocks him down. Coffey brings Ashton back up in the bearhug and Ashton endures the squeeze again.

Fans rally and Ashton feeds off it to throw hands on Coffey! Coffey reels Ashton in but Ashton elbows him away. Ashton runs but into an overhead suplex! Coffey aim from the corner, he runs corner to corner and barrels into Ashton! He gives European Uppercut after uppercut, then whips Ashton for a pop-up EuroUpper!

Coffey still powers Ashton to a corner then whips, but Ashton flapjack knees Coffey down! Ashton fires up, SUPERKICK! Ashton stalks Coffey, runs in, hop up but into a German Suplex! All the Best for the Bells!! Cover, Coffey wins!

Winner: Joe Coffey, by pinfall

The Iron King came close to falling but he still wins it out! Will he get a second chance at the WWE United Kingdom Championship to finally take the throne?

 

Walter VS Mark Coffey!

Brother Joe was successful, but what about brother Mark? The younger Coffey boy takes on the Austrian Anomaly, will he be able to stop Walter from reaching the WWE UK Championship? Or is there no stopping the Ring General from taking over?

Fans sing for Walter as the bell rings. Walter and Coffey tie up and Coffey gets behind to start clubbing away. Coffey CHOPS Walter, but it only angers Walter. Walter swings but Coffey avoids the chop and gives back forearms. But Walter still CHOPS Coffey on the return! Walter puts Coffey on the ropes for a clubbing crossface, and another! Coffey tumbles to the floor, and Walter goes after him. Coffey powers Walter into the apron and the barriers, then clubs him around. Fans cheer Walter on as Coffey puts him in the ring for stomps. Walter gets up but Coffey keeps on him with body shots. Coffey throws EuroUppers and more stomps, but Walter resists the arm stretch. Coffey still manages it with the help of kicks into Walter’s back. Fans rally up for Walter as Coffey stomps away.

Walter powers up and starts turning the hold around onto Coffey! Walter stretches Coffey’s arm snow but Coffey gets a ropebreak. Coffey gets a cheap elbow in, then a EuroUpper in the corner. Coffey whips but Walter holds ropes. Fans cheer Walter but Coffey clubs away on him with forearms. Coffey whips but Walter reverses. The two collide, but Walter does not budge!

The ref counts but Walter lets up at 4, and Coffey tumbles to the floor. Walter pursues and drags Coffey up. Walter CHOPS Coffey again, then back suplexes Cofffey onto the apron! Coffey rolls in and Walter pursues again. Walter drags Coffey up for more clubbing crossfaces! Walter wraps Coffey in a sleeper but Coffey keeps it off for dear life. Coffey gets a shoulder beaker, and a stiff forearm! He even hits a stiff double ax handle, and a EuroUpper. Coffey clotheslines, dodges Walter, then PELES! Cover, TWO! Walter and Coffey both grit their teeth and catch their breath.

Fans rally as Coffey scoops but Walter slips out to CHOP Coffey on the back! Walter has the sleeper but Coffey backs him down for elbows! Walter DROPKICKS Coffey! Then, Walter Bomb! Cover, Walter wins!

Winner: Walter, by pinfall

Only his second match on NXT UK and it was a tough one, but the Ring General toughs it out and is victorious! Fans sing for Walter again, will everyone be singing all the way to Walter taking the title?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A really great episode here before NXT UK goes to Phoenix. Andrews VS Ligero was incredible just for an opening match, and it doesn’t even need a reason to happen. I can’t be sure but I feel like the colors in their gear alluded to Dragonball Z, Ligero as Piccolo and Andrews as Goku. But maybe that’s just me. Anyway, it’s pretty big for Ligero to win. NXT UK midcard title when? Also, I like Jordan Devlin calling out Noam Dar, those two can have a great match and even a great program for NXT UK. Again, NXT UK midcard title please? Joseph Conners moves up in the midcard after having a pretty good match with Wild Boar, but I can’t be sure who his real opponent in this story of his ends up being.

Xia VS Candy Floss was good, though I sensed just a moment or so of being rusty. Naturally Xia wins, they’ve been hyping her up as a standout midcard superstar. Rhea did great to show up outta nowhere and beat them both down, that’s what a ruthless Heel like her should do. Toni showing up was a good spot, too, as that’s what a top Face should do. Good idea to have Xia be a human shield, and Rhea stands tall going into NXT UK Phoenix. But because of that, and because of Jinny’s promo, it’s still gonna be #ToniTime, and then Toni VS Jinny will happen for the next UK TakeOver. Jinny VS Mia Yim is also going to be great, but for the same reasons, Jinny wins. As for Rhea, she and Xia can have a female David VS Goliath story for UK TakeOver.

Both Coffey brothers had good showings tonight. Ashton looked strong against Joe but obviously Joe wins to stay strong in the upper-midcard, just outside of title contention. Mark did great as Walter’s second match on NXT UK, which is great for both of them. Walter looks more legitimate to fans unfamiliar with him, and Mark looks great for fans who do know Walter. But again, Walter looks strong because he is going to be the next contender to the title. Dunne’s promo on that was good, and Dunne VS Walter is going to be incredible. However, I expected Gallus to come back out to fight Walter all at once, to then bring out Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner. Perhaps that’ll happen later, regardless if Walter is champion.

My Score: 8.5/10

Jon Moxley is here!

While The Maniac is going to face Konosuke Takeshita in a Title Eliminator regarding his IWGP World Heavyweight Championship, he’s here tonight at the sight of his AEW debut five years ago! That night was Double or Nothing 2019 and he gave Kenny Omega a Paradigm Shift onto the stack of giant poker chips, but it would seem he’s gonna be face to face with Don Callis now. Callis makes his way out to the ring now and fans boo him and his weird low bass rumble theme song. Callis says he has something important to say, and he tells Jon that he isn’t here to cause any trouble. Callis just wants to talk about their history.

Did everyone know that on Callis’ second night in AEW, he cost Moxley the AEW World Championship? Hey, he’s trying to talk to Moxley, stay out of this! The fans keep booing, but Callis says Moxley literally got his pound of flesh. Roll the footage of the night Moxley decked Callis and caused him to be cut open! Then Callis turned on Kenny Omega just a few nights later! Look at Moxley take advantage of that! Without knowing it, they both changed the course of this company! Every morning, Moxley is the first person Callis thinks about, because Callis sees this scar. TWENTY-FOUR stitches! For most, that’d be a deal breaker.

But Callis says he and Moxley aren’t like most people. Not like all of these normies in the crowd! Ironic of Callis to say that when these “normal people” want to see Moxley scar Callis again… But Callis says when he was in the hospital, Moxley opened the door. Callis thought Moxley was gonna finish the job! Moxley put his hand on Callis’ shoulder and said, “You’re one of us now.” Callis looked Moxley in the eyes, and what he saw was nothing! The same as when Callis looks in his eyes. The worst kept secret as that these two are a lot alike. They see everything, but feel nothing! They are “high-functioning sociopaths,” and pro-wrestling gave them a platform to change the world!

Thirty years ago, guys like them would be an institution somewhere! But they worked together and Moxley beat Omega. The fans tell Callis to STFU, but Callis tells Moxley that when Moxley said “You’re one of us now,” Moxley was right! Callis helped Moxley beat Omega, but who didn’t Callis didn’t have to help? Takeshita. And Jon, this isn’t a threat, but Moxley has Takeshita tomorrow and it kills Callis. Callis doesn’t want to see this match. Imagine instead, them on parallel yet separate paths, and just once, if they were going it he same direction! They could run AEW! Tony Khan couldn’t stop them! The UN couldn’t stop them!!

So Callis isn’t here to pitch anything, Moxley’s too smart for that. But just imagine what this could be like. They’re alike! They’re not alone! So instead of the eliminator, use that time to make an announcement about Moxley’s future with The Callis Family! What does Callis have to do to get this done? Moxley is taken aback, paces a bit, and fans want him to deck Callis already. Callis offers the mic and Moxley takes it. The fans sing, “F HIM UP, F HIM UP!” Moxley tells Callis, “Okay, just one question.” Anything! What is it? “Well, if you and I are gonna trust each other, if we’re gonna be on the same page, I’m gonna need more of a commitment than that little baby scar on your forehead right there.”

So how about 24 MORE scars in that big bald head of Callis’? But then Takeshita CLOBBERS Moxley from behind! This was the plan all along, wasn’t it? ALPHA ELBOW!! Takeshita then gets a chair, brings it in, and he puts it around Moxley’s arm! Takeshita stands on the arm, then goes up the corner! The fans boo and Takeshita flips Moxley off, before the DIVING STOMP!! Moxley’s arm could very well be broken inside the chair! And then Takeshita STOMPS the chair more! Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli rush out here and that sends The Callis Family running! The damage has been done, will Moxley be able to stop Takeshita tomorrow night?

 

AEW shares Will Ospreay’s message from after Dynamite last Wednesday.

“You think I look pretty bad about now, right? Nah, this is nothing. Mate, I’ve been on full night benders, woke up in the morning, had a bowl of Coco Pops, got on a plane to Japan, called out the toughest guy and whooped on him in front of his wife and kids while I was smiling, bruv! You think this is the end, Messiah? What, am I to believe in you, am I? You think this scares me? I EFFIN’ LIVE FOR THIS, BRUV! I flew all the way from England on a 10 hour flight, got transferred over the Bakersfield, and this is the best that you got? My Messiah, am I meant to believe in you? Am I meant to believe?

“Nah, mate. The only thing that i believe is bell to bell, internationally known, no one is better than me inside that ring. And now what you’ve done, mate, now what you’ve done is just bonded me with that championship. My blood is on that championship, so now it is my duty, it is my spirit, that is bonded with that championship! So Sunday, in the perfect city to do it in, bet it all, gamble your life on it, son. Cuz now, it is my last mission to take that International Championship from you! And Hell or high water, nothing, nobody, is better than Will Ospreay. Cuz I am on another level!” Will Roddy learn he’s not a Savior but a False Prophet of the Backbreaker?

 

Six Man Tag: Claudio Castagnoli, Daniel Garcia & ??? VS Lance Archer & The Righteous!

The Swiss Superman and the Dragonslayer are teaming together to take on The Murderhawk Monster, as well as good ol’ Dutch & Vincent, all to avenge what they tried to do to Bryan Danielson & FTR. But who is their third man, brother? It’s HIROSHI TANAHASHI! The Ace of the Universe, the President of NJPW, and one-third of the NEVER Openweight Six Man Champions is here on Collision! Will Ace-sachou be just the trump card Claudio & Garcai need to win big in Sin City?

Archer storms in but Tanahashi catches him! We get DOUBLE TWIST ‘N’ SHOUTS!

The fans are thunderous as Tanahashi air guitars and Garcia does his dance! Dutch runs in, Claudio catches him and trips him! The fans fire up, Garcia plays air guitar and Tanahashi does the dance! But then Vinnie CLOBBERS Tanahashi and Archer CLOBBERS Claudio and Garcia! The fans boo but Collision goes picture in picture.

Archer stomps away on Garcia in a corner, lets off as the ref counts, and Vinnie drags Garcia up. Vinnie CHOPS, Archer talks trash on fans, and Vinnie bumps Garcia off buckles. Vinnie drags Garcia up to SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO! Archer sends Tanahashi into railing! Garcia grabs at Vinnie’s beard but Vinnie pushes him. Vinnie puts Garcia in a corner, CHOKES him, but lets off as the ref counts. Dutch tags in, The Righteous mug Garcia, and then Dutch reels Garcia in for a short arm LARIAT!

A huge moment for these three, and they celebrate with Garcia’s dance! Will, Claudio isn’t really into it, not his style. But will this mean big things are in store for Forbidden Door next month?

 

The following message is on behalf of The Elite.

“When it comes to the tireless work of your EVPs, the job is never done. While being the greatest tag team ever is glamorous, it is in the countless hours of thankless service to every single employee where Matthew & Nicholas find their true glory. From the global stars of AEW to the ring crew and everyone in between, The Elite always give back to the business that has given them so much. However, four men, four violent, ungrateful, ignorant, deranged men, want only to destroy what their humble, selfless work has built.” Anarchy in the Arena is coming, but for the fans, your EVPs will never shy away from adversity in their pursuit to #ChangeTheWorld.

So, clearly biased and edited to favor The Young Bucks, Kazuchika Okada & Jack Perry, but will The Elite stop at nothing to stay in control?

 

The Gunn Brothers VS The Lucha Brothers!

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey.

Arkady Aura is with The Learning Tree & “Redwood,” and notes Jericho’s FTW Championship will be a Triple Threat after Hook and Katsuyori Shibata got a double submission victory. Does this bother Jericho at all? Bill says if he may be so bold, if there is one thing Jericho has always said, it is that when you face adversity, and you are facing the darkest hour, you have to dig deep to pull out the light. Bill is sure that applies here. Jericho agrees. And he loves Arkady’s name, it sounds like a place where you play video games. Anyway, to be serious, he was not expecting to have two opponents.

But now that he does, after 33 YEARS of being on top of the wrestling world, doing the greatest things that’ve ever been done, the fan support that he has, he knows he’ll have to work extra hard to retain the title. But as the longest reigning “For The World Champion” at 44 days, Jericho thinks he will come away with a win. When you’re The Learning Tree, you have to be ready to face all adversaries, and all different types of opponents. But then in walks Bryan Keith. The Bounty Hunter says he missed his shot, but he promises that this ain’t the last we’ve seen of him. Keith heads out, Jericho smiles and thanks him for that.

Will The Ocho defy the one-third odds he has to still be the one with the gold?

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS KM!

#CombatKyle is still a bit sore from losing to Malakai Black, but he isn’t gonna let The End be the end of his comeback! Will he just keep fighting until he’s going for gold?

The bell rings and Kyle runs up to fire off on KM! KM shoves Kyle, swings, but Kyle body shots, KICKS and KICKS! Kyle runs, but KM DROPKICKS him! KM fires up, wrenches and whips Kyle corner to corner hard, and he asks, “Who suck snow?!” The fans say “YOU!” KM runs in, but into a BOOT! KM comes back, into another boot! KM tries again, Kyle dodges the splash! GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! KM RAMS Kyle into buckles, but Kyle holds on tight, body scissors included! KM fades, so Kyle lets go to KICK! AX and- NO, KM blocks the smash! Then he blocks a kick! But Kyle blocks a haymaker to get the ARMBAR!! KM taps, Kyle wins!

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by submission

KOR > KM, and now Kyle is all fired up! Will Kyle be primed to fight for a title after AEW goes Double or Nothing?

 

Willow Nightingale is here!

The fans cheer as the TBS Champion, and her good pal Kris Statlander, heads to the ring. Kris leaves it to Willow from here, and Willow steps in the ring to get a mic. The Babe with the Power says, “Las Vegaaaaas~! Y’know, it feels really great to be here. And on the fifth anniversary of All Elite Wrestling, none the less. And we got Collision on TBS tonight, and you can’t have Collision on TBS without The Face of TBS!” The fans cheer that! Willow revels in their chants a moment before saying thanks. But she also thinks about last night’s Rampage, and how someone else put their hands on her TBS Championships: Mercedes Mone.

The fans are torn but mostly boo The CEO. Willow says Mone has been here about two months, and Willow keeps talking about respect. But we’re way past that now. Tomorrow night, Double or Nothing, Willow will WRECK Mone! She will make Mone long for the days when she was out of harm’s way, sitting at home on the shelf! And Willow knows that championships come and go. But she’ll be DAMNED if tomorrow is the night this reign ends! Because for years, Willow has been working towards HER dream. She’s had knee surgery! Not many known this, but she was almost PARALYZED by a neck injury five years ago, before ever getting to AEW!

So now, Willow gets to live her dream as TBS Champion. And Willow will go through Manitoba Massacres, she will hop on planes to go to Japan, 14 hours each way, and fight in a Stardom ring. So Mercedes, Willow is just getting started! The fans fire up for Willow and she nods. Willow tells Mone that Mone says Willow can’t beat her at 100%. But Willow knows Mone can’t beat Willow at any percent! Because last year, Willow did just that! And tomorrow, at Double or Nothing, she proves that the better woman IS Willow Nightingale! The fans are fired up as Willow holds that title high, but will she be holding it at the end of Sunday night?

 

Backstage interview with Trent Beretta.

Lexy Nair is with #JustTrent and says that he has all the moment going into his match with Orange Cassidy. Aside from that, this is also deeply personal. We saw Trent end Chuck Taylor’s in-ring career, is he going to try that with Cassidy? Trent says that he’s already said everything that he’s had to say about “that con-man narcissist.” Trent vows that tomorrow night, he shows the whole world something Trent’s known for a long time. But in steps Rocky Romero. Azucar knows they haven’t talked, he just wanted to see him before tomorrow night. It’s a big night, Trent’s been here since day one, lots of memories between what was The Best Friends.

No matter what, Rocky just hopes there is a way they can all put this all behind them. They’re more than Best Friends, they’re family! Trent says that’s not happening at all. And don’t ever interrupt him again. Trent leaves, Rocky isn’t sure what to make of that, is Trent already past the point of no return?

 

Fatal 4 Way Tag: The Acclaimed VS The Gates of Agony VS The House of Black VS The Infantry!

While The Young Bucks are busy with Anarchy in the Arena tomorrow night, they will need challengers for their AEW World Tag Team Championships at some point. This match will go a long way in clearing out the pack, who stands tall after this massive match as strong contenders?

But wait, Platinum Max has a diss track on deck! “The House of Black ain’t about s*it, a new ball gag would fit right in with those outfits! I treat Infantry like infants, getting overpowered. Fake American heroes, y’all’re stolen valor! I heard you rap but you’re not as cold as ours. You pissed me off, now you got the golden shower. From the tip of my pee niz to the top of your tongue, don’t talk about me, b*tch! I heard Brian Cage can’t stay hard, your other two guys, I don’t know what their names are! They still talk a big game, but in Vegas, Everybody Loves The Acclaimed!”

Bowens then takes the mic to say, “LAAAS VEGAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! Caster’s words really sting and those punchlines were smart, but will The Acclaimed return to the top of the tag charts?

The teams all sort out, and in this form of Fatal 4, only two teams are legal at a time. Caster and Carlie Bravo start, circle, and they tie up. Bravo rolls Caster up, ONE! Caster rolls Bravo up, TWO! Bravo sweeps to cover, ONE! Caster sweeps to cover, ONE! They stand off, Caster pushes Bravo but Bravo pushes back. They circle, Caster avoids the House of Black and tags Bowens. Bravo isn’t as aware, Buddy Matthews tags in off him. Buddy and Bowens circle, but then Bishop Kaun tags himself in! The Cameroonian Prince tells Bowens to split, then he ties up with the Aussie Juggernaut. Buddy headlocks but Kaun powers out. They RAM shoulders, then Kaun goes again.

They RAM shoulders again, Buddy hits a headlock takeover. Kaun headscissors, Buddy kips free, and the two stand off. Brody calls to Buddy, Buddy tags him in. But Kaun tags Toa Liona and the fans fire up for the big meaty men! Brody and Liona circle, they BLAST Infantry and Acclaimed! Then they run up to LARIAT! “MEAT!” The forearms fly, “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” Bowens gets in but Brody DECKS him! The “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” continues but Caster gets in. Liona DECKS Caster! The “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” gets going, both Infantry get in. Liona and Brody DECK them both! Then Brody ROCKS Liona!

Kaun runs up, Brody BOOTS him! Brody brings Liona up but Liona fireman’s carries! Brody slips free to HEADBUTT, but it hurts Brody! You never headbutt a Samoan! Liona fireman’s carries, Buddy runs up, so Liona dumps Brody to knee Buddy! Liona TOSSES Buddy out, UPPERCUTS him, then ROCKS Brody! Brody leans on ropes, Liona roars, but he runs, and Buddy dumps him out! The teams all fight o the outside, and BRODY DIVES!! Direct hit into the cluster, STRIKE! The fans are thunderous as we go picture in picture!

The House drags people up, Buddy SMACKS Bravo off steps, then THRWOS him into barriers! Brody CHOKES Caster then CLUBS him down! Bowens goes after Liona but Liona RAMS him into steel steps! Brody chokes Caster, Kaun is sent into barriers, and the House mugs Bravo. Brody CLUBS Bowens, Liona throws Shawn Dean around, it is just chaos on the outside! Buddy CHOPS Bravo, Brody CLUBS Bowens, The Gates mug Dean! The ref wants someone to get in the ring, so Liona and Brody storm in. They circle, snarl, but then Caster tags in off Brody! Caster stays back, Buddy tags in off Liona. Buddy runs up, Caster dodges to BACKHAND!

Caster has Buddy in a corner, goes up, but Buddy DUMPS Caster to the apron! But Caster ROCKS Buddy in return! The fans fire up as Caster climbs, but Buddy trips Caster up! Buddy climbs, he brings Caster up, and SUPERPLEXES! Cover, TWO! Buddy tags Brody, then he scoop SLAMS Caster! Brody runs to SENTON! Brody drags Caster up, Collision returns to single picture, and Brody CHPOS Caster down! Tag to Buddy, he ROCKS Caster. The fans rally, Buddy clamps on a SLEEPER! Caster endures, reaches out, and the fans rally more. Caster fights up, JAWBREAKERS, and then flounders.

Buddy anchors Caster’s foot, yanks him back and he BLASTS Bowens! Caster reaches for The Infantry but Buddy keeps Caster from them, too. The Infantry avoid the sucker punches, then Caster dodges Buddy! Infantry get in Caster SUPERKICKS Buddy! The Infantry DOUBLE SUPERKICK! Brody tags in, he misses wide, DOUBLE SUPERKICKS, then DOUBLE SUPERKICKS, then TRIPLE SUPERKICKS!! Brody finally falls, Kaun runs up! SUPERKICK from Caster! TRIPLE SUPERKICKS again! Liona runs up, he CLOBBERS Caster, then breaks through the Infantry’s line to DOUBLE CROSSBODY!

The fans are torn as Liona drags Caster over, tags himself in off Caster, then fires up. Liona runs in at Brody to SPLASH! “MEAT!” Buddy is up top! METEORA! Buddy turns around, Kaun uses Liona as a step for a FLYING SHOTGUN! Caster returns to fireman’s carry, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER on Kaun! Linoa throat chops Caster! Infantry mugs Liona, they hook him up, but Brody CLUBs them all! Brody fires off on Liona, reels him in, but Liona is so big! Linoa fireman’s carries to SAMOAN DROP! Cover, Caster breaks it! Liona glares and grabs Caster by his neck! Liona SHOVES Caster out, but Bravo tags in!

Bravo ROCKS Liona, DUMPS him out, then hurries in. There’s more brawling outside between Gates and Acclaimed, but The Infantry take the corners! They take aim, STEREO SUPER CROSSBODIES!! The fans fire up again and The Infantry are in. They dodge Brody, BOOT Buddy, SUPERKICK and FOREARM for Brody, repeat! They reel Brody in, but he powers out of the double suplexes! The Infantry bob ‘n’ weave, the brawling on the outside gets wilder as Billy Gunn and Brian Cage join in! The Infantry hook Brody up, but Buddy disrupts Boot Camp! Brody CLOBBERS Dean! The other teams are just gone, fighting all the way to the back!

Buddy has Bravo in a corner, the fans hoot with Brody, and he runs in at Bravo, CANNONBALL DROPKICK COMBO!! Cover, The House wins!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

Brody King & Buddy Matthews are truly a dangerous duo, will they be aimed right at the AEW World Tag Team Champions after Double or Nothing? Will Malakai Black step into the barbed wire steel cage and prove the House Always Wins?

 

Adam “Edge” Copeland speaks.

“Malakai… House of Black… You took the one item that kept me tethered to my comfortable world. The second I stepped foot in AEW, I knew it was only a matter of time before you’d set your sights on me. You were born out of the shadows that I cast. But I’ve been walking this path since before your balls dropped. But you’ve shown me. You’ve shown me where I need to navigate from. I need to go back to the pits. To the margins, to the outside looking in. You wanted this version of me, the version that has a devil on this shoulder, but no angel to be found.

“It’s fitting that this barbed wire steel cage match happens in the land of neon lights, and the violence that will take place within this steel cage is a fitting juxtaposition. Malakai, you said if I lose, I bend the knee, I join the House of Black. Oh, can you imagine? Can you imagine the force that we would be? And in a storybook ending, you defeat your influence, only we… We don’t deal in dreams. Our currency is nightmares, this is a horror story. Has it ever dawned on you, Malakai, that I used this to get closer to The House? What if I defeat you, and the House joins me?

“Buddy and Brody know the Devil that lives in my heart. I’ve been known to be a master manipulator. The House of Blood… That’s something I can sink my teeth into. Questions. So many questions. But Malakai, know this fact: When you see evil in a man’s eyes, it’s already too late.” Edge snaps his fingers and the lights go out. Will this darkness consume all of AEW as things get Rated R?

 

AEW shares Toni Storm’s message from after Dynamite.

“Serena Deeb… This isn’t for you. This is for everyone like you. This is for everyone that thinks that because they’ve had a sad life, it entitles them to some kind of reward. Nothing happens for a reason, darling. Things just happen. If everything happened for a reason, then there would be ONE main event at Double or Nothing, and it would be me talking for 40 minutes while you sit around and analyze my words like a Zapruder Film! But no, instead I have to fight for my life against a woman who thinks that twitching on the floor was a sign from the universe that she should keep wrestling!

“You want to be a victim? I will make you a victim. I will make your three seizures feel like a Sunday stroll in the bloody park! The saddest part about your life is that you thought it had any meaning at all. But don’t worry. In your obituary, they will mention that you lost to the champ.” The leading lady is even more vicious than ever, will she make sure Deeb never works in this town again?

 

Mariah May VS Leyla Hirsch!

Toni Storm’s protege is herself riding high after the big tag win on Wednesday, but now she’s got a LEGIT opponent standing across from her. Will Mariah still be able to shine on her own? Or will she be lost without her mentor by her side?

The bell rings, the fans rally, and the two circle. They tie up, Mariah powers Leyla to ropes, and the ref counts. Mariah lets off, Leyla runs up and gets around. Leyla shoves Mariah to a corner, runs up, but Mariah goes up and over. Leyla storms up on Mariah again, but Mariah CHOPS! Mariah shrugs, CHOPS again, then CHOPS again. Mariah CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Leyla ROCKS her! Leyla gets in Mariah’s face, or uh, chest rather. So Mariah makes sure Leyla gets a face full of it! The fans fire up, Leyla is flustered, and Mariah does a little dance. Leyla is furious, Mariah shrugs, and then Leyla clinches! BELLY2BELLY!

Leyla drags Mariah up but Mariah fireman’s carries! SAMOAN DROP! Mariah sits Leyla up, runs, and SHOTGUNS Leyla down! Mariah rocks out and Collision goes picture in picture.

Mariah swaggers around as the fans cheer, and she brings Leyla up. Mariah bumps Leyla off buckles, and puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOPS! Leyla shoves Mariah, Mariah scuffs her, then snapmares her. Mariah does a little prance then runs to PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO! Mariah clamps onto Leyla with a body scissors and full nelson, then shifts to a short arm scissor! Leyla fights around, powers Mariah to a pump handle and cording hold! Mariah throws Leyla off her, then DECKS her!

Mariah goes out after Leyla, drags her up and fireman’s carries, but Leyla fights free. Leyla RAMS Mariah into steel steps! Leyla puts Mariah in, stomps her, then clamps on a rear bearhug! Mariah endures the squeeze, fights up to her feet, but Leyla whips her into a corner. Leyla runs up to ROCK Mariah, and she rolls to come back, SWINGING DROPKICK! Collision returns to single picture as the fans rally up for Mariah. Leyla drags Mariah into a drop zone, steps on her and climbs up. The fans cheer for Leyla, “SHE’S LEGIT!

Leyla is still in this but Mariah grits her teeth. The fans rally, Mariah drags Leyla up and bumps her off buckles. Mariah puts Leyla up top, CHOPS her, then storms around. Mariah runs corner to corner, to go into the STRATUSPHERE! Leyla flounders, Mariah says kiss this! SWEET HIP- NO, Leyla gets around to O’Conner Roll! Then she blocks a kick to get around and GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Mariah survives and Leyla is stunned!

Leyla hurries to drag Mariah up, the fans rally and duel, but Mariah ROCKS Leyla! Leyla gets Mariah in a clinch, but Mariah slips out! Mariah HEADBUTTS Leyla, then KNEES her down!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

And with that, Storm’s understudy puts away another one! Will Mariah be primed for a title opportunity of her own after Double or Nothing?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Double or Nothing!

After Brian Cage called The Acclaimed out last night on Rampage, and after the brawling that took them all out of the Fatal 4 Way tonight, Tony Khan has made a big Six Man Tag grudge match for The Buy-In! Will The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn get a big win on Sunday? Or will they fail to escape the #CageOfAgony?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexy is now with The Professor, and brings up those “vicious” comments by Toni Storm. We are less than 24 hours from their match, is Deeb ready? Deeb says tomorrow night is the biggest match of her career. Double or Nothing, or perhaps Deeb or Nothing. Toni Storm, in this lead up to the match, they’ve had some fun and games. Storm stole the banner, paraded around in it, but let Deeb ask you this: It wasn’t so fun when you had to throw in the towel and save that stooge, Mariah, from losing a leg, now was it? And Deeb is sure Mariah is grateful to Storm for making sure she could walk out of there that night. But Deeb can’t say the same for Storm.

Deeb will stretch Storm limb from limb, and it’s been a long time coming. Tomorrow night, Deeb finally becomes AEW Women’s World Champion! And “Timeless” Toni Storm will become Time’s Up Toni Storm. See you tomorrow night. The Professor is ready to teach the Leading Lady a life lesson, will it have to be learned the hard way?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Swerve VS Christian.

The Patriarch says, “Swerve, I felt it was apropos to return to the scene of the crime. The crime you committed against my son. My son, Nick, learned to walk in this ring before he could even run these ropes. Because you didn’t just jump my son, Nick, in a random wrestling gym. You jumped him on holy ground. An eye for an eye.” Swerve admits his methods were a “little misunderstood,” a little skewed, but he always got things done in the ring. No one can ever say Swerve didn’t deserve the world title. Christian hears a lot about Swerve’s House. And he told Swerve that he never forgets.

All In Wembley, Swerve embarrassed Christian. Christian said he’d make Swerve a footnote, but that’s no longer enough. Swerve must be held accountable for his crimes. Two years in AEW and people are still calling Swerve a footnote. He’s on TV, he promises AEW, he promotes AEW on radio and podcasts. He is the face of AEW, the world is forgetting Christian Cage. Christian reminds us that he is taking something from Swerve every week. For every ounce of Nick’s blood that was spilt, Christian is taking the title. Swerve asks if Nick’s yet to learn his lessons. Swerve doesn’t think they have it in them to do this to a world champion!

Swerve has built his house, and at Double or Nothing, he proves it’s whose house? The reason Swerve is not sleeping at home is because he’s too busy building this house! Christian vows to wipe Swerve from the annals of AEW, and to become the NEW AEW World Champion. Two fathers fighting for their families and their legacies, but whose house must suffer for the other’s to thrive?

 

Six Man Tag; Bryan Danielson & FTR VS Team Triple J!

The American Dragon & #TopGuys made it through Archer & The Righteous last week, but another faction just had to take The Elite up on that Double or Nothing bounty. Will Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh get another big bag of money for this hit job? Or will Bryan, Dax & Cash prove nothing’s gonna stop them before Anarchy in the Arena?

HOTSHOT for Cash! Satnam drags Cash out to CHOP! Sonjay laughs at Cash, the ref tells Triple J to back off, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Dax is in a corner, Satnam run sin, but Dax dodges! No more relaxing, Jarrett tags in! But so does Bryan! The fans fire up as Bryan fires hands on Jarrett! “YES! YES! YES!” The fans fire up as Bryan KICKS away on Jarrett, “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan climbs up to rain down fists! The fans count all the way to TEN, then Bryan whips corner to corner. Jarrett reverses, Bryan goes up and over and keeps moving! Bryan ducks ‘n’ dodges to LEAPING LARIAT!

Vegas is all fired up with Bryan and he runs to DROPKICK in the corner! Bryan keeps moving, another DROPKICK! Bryan keeps moving, but gets under Jarrett’s lariat to wrangle him! Omoplata, LEBELL LOCK! Lethal CLOBBERS Bryan! Cash storms in, DUMPS Lethal out, and then he calls to Bryan. Bryan builds speed, and DIVES while Cash PLANCHAS! Down go Lethal and Jarrett! Dax says OLE to Satnam and sends him into steel steps! Satnam hobbles his way into the ring, Bryan & FTR get in! They surround the giant, and they KICK! KICK! KICK! “YES! YES! YES!” TRIPLE KICKS rattle Satnam from all sides!

Bryan winds up, to BUZZSAW! FTR mock The Bucks, F T R TRIGGER!! And then BUSAIKU KNEE!!! Satnam staggers about! Lethal gets in, DOUBLE LETHAL INJECTION on FTR!! But Bryan DISCUS LARIATS Lethal!

Jarrett aims at Bryan, takes a swing, but Bryan dodges and the chair SMACKS Satnam!! The giant tumbles up and out!!

Bryan aims, Jarrett panics, BUSAIKU KNEE!! Lethal runs in, into a SHATTER MACHINE!! Cover on Jarrett, Team AEW wins!

Winners: Bryan Danielson & FTR, by pinfall

Karen is furious but there’s nothing she can do about it! Cash gets a mic and says, “2020, FTR made the debut in AEW for the first time in our careers. Four years ago, that very moment, AEW became our home. AEW is where I will live, I will breathe, I will fight, I will DIE for this company! Everybody, wrestling fans, are better off because of AEW. Wrestlers are better off because of AEW! The entire wrestling world is better off because of All Elite Wrestling!” The fans agree with all of that! Cash says FTR & Bryan might be beat up, might be hurt, they and Darby Allin might limp into Double or Nothing. But Cash swears that they’re the only ones that’ll walk out!

Dax takes the mic to say that five years ago, almost to the day, in this building, the same people here tonight, this company started. Why is FTR fighting for AEW? It is not just this company that FTR is fighting for. They are fighting for every single man and woman that wakes up in the morning, goes to work, has a terrible day, but comes home, turns their TVs on, and watches AEW. And for that one moment in time, whether it’s one or two hours, all those problems are gone. One time a week, two times a week, FTR gets to be their hero. If they were to die tomorrow, Anarchy in the Arena, they will be your heroes. #TopGuysOut!

The fans are fired up, just like The American Dragon & FTR! Will they and the Relentless Darby Allin tear down the corrupt Elite to save All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A very good Collision, but it always feels like things get so talkie. And that kinda happened here because this was the go home show. All the promos were well done, as they almost always are, but were also in many ways redundant. Well, mostly the Chris Jericho one, but I guess him taking up screentime is part of the gimmick now. Willow’s was really good, too, but I wouldn’t say that changed the go home math or anything. Edge’s promo after that awesome Fatal 4 was also good, and I suppose that’s the promo that matters since he is now turning the tables on Malakai. Edge naturally would want to lead the faction rather than join it, but again something feels very Edge & Judgment Day about this, not sure what happens here.

Storm’s promo certainly helps her ride that Tweener line. On one point, yeah, she’s right, tragedy in life doesn’t entitle anyone to anything outside of sympathy. But at the same time, she sure didn’t show any sympathy to Deeb’s tragedy. Deeb’s response was also good, the title match will be great stuff, but surely Storm retains. And I will say that we got a very good video package for Christian and Swerve, I just wish it wasn’t also on the night bogged down by other promos. The irony is, this video could’ve been on the Countdown to Double or Nothing special from last night, but I wouldn’t know because I didn’t watch it. There must be fans who do watch it if AEW keeps doing them. But it just feels like after five years, AEW would’ve figured out how to not make things feel redundant.

Great opening promo from Moxley with Callis, and good ambush from Takeshita. I thought that with Double or Nothing only giving us a Title Eliminator, Takeshita would still win and force something for Forbidden Door. Now I don’t know. Maybe Takeshita defies the math and wins with cheating, or they go outside the box and have Moxley get disqualified because he’s just that pissed. Great opening Six Man Tag right after, with Hiroshi Tanahashi being a great surprise. A great win for the Faces there, and there’s any number of possibilities for Forbidden Door, but surely Tanahashi will want a part of that card.

Great tag match of Gunns VS Lucha Bros, but I figured Lucha Bros would win to force the trios title match. Granted, still don’t see Death Triangle winning out, but it’ll be a great match. And also of course another match is added to the Buy-In, it’s what happens with all AEW PPVs. Great filler squash of Kyle beating KM, Kyle should definitely be waiting on the other side of Double or Nothing for a title match, and it’d be fitting continuity if he went for the TNT Championship after having his matches with Edge and the House of Black. A good filler match from Mariah and Leyla, with a good win for Mariah. It’d be a bit copy-paste from ROH making Athena & Billie Starkz a mentor-mentee champion duo, but what if Mariah tried for the TBS Championship before going for the world title?

And great main event Six Man Tag, but of course the Faces won. Very good closing promos from FTR, though Dax has used his spiel about doing this for us, the hardworking folks, before and it’s a bit redundant again. I still want this to turn into AEW Avengers: Endgame or whatever, but the way things are going, I would think Team AEW, aka the Faces, find a way to win to motivate Bucks VS FTR “One last time” and at All In 2024.

My Score: 8.7/10
