The fans are all in, the commentary is all in, and this show is set to begin with “The! Elite! The the Elite!” Yes, the NEW ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions and the (self-proclaimed) All In Trios Champions, are here! Cody welcomes the fans but technical difficulties make it difficult. Let’s blow the budget now while we’re at it! Does Chicago love pyro? Yes! Well here’s PYRO! … Oh. Maybe not. There’s still some glitches to work out. Maybe Matt forgot to pay the guy. Let’s try again. PYRO! There it is. Okay, pull back, pull back. This everything wrestling show needs a random cameo from a legend. Here’s a hint. “What a rrrrush!” And yes, there is The Road Warrior, Animal!

Not just that, but does Chicago like free merchandise? Hot Topic, Pro-Wrestling Tees, give them their merch! Staff comes out with t-shirt guns and shoots them off for the crowd. Cut to a Pro-Wrestling Tees commercial featuring Joey Ryan. His shirt rips? Oh no! This was Joey’s only shirt. But wait, here’s a brand new one! “Thanks, Pro-Wrestling Tees!” Get yours, today!

The Briscoes VS Frankie Kazarian & Scorpio Sky

The SCU are Rocky and Apollo tonight as the Heavy Metal Rebel and The Closer take on #DemBoyz ahead of their eventual ROH World Tag Team Championship match.

Scorpio gives a shout out to Chicago, “This is the worst town I’ve ever been to!” Fans still cheer, because tonight, this is history! Tonight, everyone here is a part of a revolution. Because tonight, “We Are All-In!” Now Kaz has three letters so please say along to make his day. “S C U!” But #DemBoyz aren’t in a fun-loving mood, as per usual. Can SoCal Uncensored score some non-title momentum for when The Addiction go against the brothers from Sandy Fork?

Backstage interview with Kenny Omega

Why is the interviewer standing like that? to make him look taller. No, be casual. The day has finally come. How does he feel about tonight? Pentagon, a former Impact World Champion, and Omega is THE IWGP Heavyweight Champion. They’re wrestlers of the people so they’re giving the people this dream match. Pentagon may not be ready, but Omega is. Omega wants to make this match an instant classic. Omega knows how great and how popular and how hardcore Pentagon is. But Omega is ready to perform in front of the world, and put his best foot forward. That, and he wants to make this day one we remember forever. How will the Best Bout Machine do against the Bone Collector in their dream match tonight?

All In takes a quick look at tonight’s main event

The NWA World Champion, Nick Aldis, has something The American Nightmare, Cody, wants. The NWA World Championship itself was a belt many greats in pro-wrestling have held, including Cody’s own father, The American Dream, Dusty Rhodes. But Aldis wants something in return. So since Cody doesn’t have the ROH World Championship to match, he put up his literal Ring of Honor. Aldis accepted this collateral, but will Cody get the ring back and the belt with it?

Over Budget Battle Royal

It’s unclear if this is a 15-man or a full 30-man, but the one thing everyone knows is that the winner will get a shot at Jay Lethal’s ROH World Championship later tonight on the main show! Stars from ROH, NJPW, NWA, Impact Wrestlnig and even Lucha Underground are here. Who will be the last man, or woman, left standing in the ring?

The bell rings and it explodes! Everyone brawls in such chaos, but Bully Ray Dudley already bends the rules. He goes through the second rope with El Chico to powerbomb him THROUGH A TABLE! He drags Chuck Taylor out to whip him into barriers, but then Trent Baretta DIVES! Trent takes Bully out for his best friend, but then Jordynne Grace DIVES on Trent! Only for Ethan Page to boot her in the face! He brawls with Rocky Romerao but Colt Cabana springboard Asai Moonsaults on them! Somehow it’s just Tommy Dreamer and Billy Gun left in the ring while everyone else brawls on the outside. The old veterans build speed and… Carefully climb out to fight with everyone!

This is less a battle royal and more a fight as Billy Gunn says “SUCK IT!” But Moose gives him a boot! Moose gives wrestler after wrestler a jab, then winds up for… everyone to hit him back! He gets cornered but then explodes out! He pumps up and climbs up, for a big crossbody! But Brian Cage catches him! Everyone helps Brian put Moose on the apron. Moose fights back again, but he’s taking too long showing off. Marco Stunt ELIMINATES Moose?! But he celebrates too long, Punishment Martinez boots him right out. The Best Friends go after Martinez, then decide to hug! Only to get a boot! Trent is mad now, but he runs into a tilt-o-whirl slam. Chuckie gets a step-stool cutter! Chuckie ends up on the outside but Ethan fights back. Trent helps his best friend out, to double suplex.

Ethan survives and Son of Gunn helps out to suplex the Best Friends in. Cage suplexes Tommy Dreamer back in! But then The Machine gets a kick and a forearm. Marco Stunt returns! Only to get tilt-o-whirl slammed. Cage comes back to back Cutler down. Cutler springboards onto Cage! Bully bullies Stunt, but he keeps Stunt from being eliminated right away. Cutler is also out, but the Best Friends keep each other in. Ethan keeps fighting them, but he runs into Rocky’s kick! The former Roppongi Vice work together, but Ethan rocks Rocky, too! But the Best Friends give him a tornado DDT! Then they give Jimmy Jacobs a crucifix cutter! Then they hug! Only for Martinez to throw them BOTH out! He ELIMINATES Best Friends.

Rocky fires off on Martinez, only to be thrown out. Rocky returns and springboard huricanranas! Then Rocky gives a clothesline train to all four corners. And Bully just because. He keeps going forever, until Cage clobbers him! Cage ELIMINATES Rocky Romero! Cage targets Cheeseburger but gets booted back. Burger flies, but is CAUGHT! He escapes, SHOTEI!! SHOTEI for Etha, SHOTEI for Martinez! Burger ain’t done, but Cage pops him up to F5 him out! Cage ELIMIANTES Burger! But now the Machine and the Monster stare down. They brawl immediately! Martinez whips but Cage reverses to huricanrana?! They keep going, tilt-o-whirl from Martinez! Cage blocks the boot to SUPERKICK! Martinez ducks the discus to give the heel kick!

Cage denies the choke slam, Marinez denies back, but Hurricane gives Martinez HIS Choke Slam! And he does the same to Cage! The Monster and Machine are no match for a Superhero! But Ethan goes after him, only for Tommy Dreamer to stop him. Maritnez has Hurricane, and things move to the apron. Hurricane and Ethan fight off the other two to then fight each other. Ethan boots and ELIMINATES Hurricane, but Cabana’s flying bionic elbow ELIMINATES Ethan! But Dreamer introduces a trash can?! “E C DUB!” echoes out as Dreamer fires off with a cookie pan! He uses the lid on Austin Gunn, then the can itself on Martinez. Martinez wobbles and comes back with the choke grip. Dreamer bites out and fires off jabs. He wears polka-dots for Dusty, bionic elbow! Death Valley Driver on top! But then Bully hits Dreamer to ELIMINATE him!

But Marco Stunt is back? His chops don’t matter, though. Bully gives Marco a bomb lift, but Papa Gunn helps out while Son Gunn knocks Bully down. Jimmy Jacobs fires off but gets a hip toss to neckbreaker! Austin calls him names, but Jimmy rips the jewels! Martinez kicks Gunn down, then lets Jimmy say “You Can’t See Me!” Five Knuckle Shuffle! And “Suck it!” Double underhook, but Papa Gunn saves his son. Only for Jimmy to give him a kiss? “Suck this, bitch!” Billy throws Jimmy out, then has to fight off Martinez. Martinez still gets Billy with a roundhouse! Martinez roars, but Austin Gunn ELIMINATES HIM!! The Son and the Father hug it out. Only for Bully to ruin it and ELIMNATE Austin! Billy gives Bully a Famouser! But then Billy and Cage come face to face.

They brawl with heavy hands, and Billy runs, but into a trophy lift! Cage ELIMINATES Billy Gunn! But Marco Stunt returns, for a pop-up code breaker!! Bully grabs Marco to ELIMINATE him once and for all. The final four are Bully, Cage, Cabana and Grace. Grace swings on Cage but then fireman’s carry and squats Cage! But Cage slips out, lifts her and tosses her! Then powerbomb lift for a buckle bomb! Cage misses in the corner, she electric chairs to powerbomb HIM! Then she ELIMINATES Cage with a clothesline! Fans are thunderous, but Bully has to go after her, now. Jordynne gets in Bully’s face, and she wants him to chop her. He just rakes her face and puts her on the top rope.

Bully climbs up, but Cabana lurks behind. Jordynne sends Bully down, Cabana helps her ask “WAZZUP!?” Headbutt to Bully’s balls! But Bully still whips and ELIMINATES Jordynne. Now it’s just Bully and Cabana. These two have been fighting over how Bully’s been treating Cheeseburger and Flip Gordon. Bully runs Cabana over and climbs up, but misses his back senton! Cabana uses the chair! SMACK! He jabs Bully again then throws him, but Bully reverses! Bully ELIMINATES Cabana and WINS!! Wait, he forgot about Chico! Chico is FLIP GORDON!! AND FLIP ELIMINATES BULLY!!!

Winner: Flip Gordon

Yes, this was Over Budget, but Flip is ALL IN! Flip gets revenge on Bully while getting his first shot at the ROH World Championship! Is Flip going to reach the top of the mountain later tonight?!

The bell rings and we begin. MJF and Cross tie up. MJF gets a headlock but Cross powers out, only to get run over by MJF. Max shows off with that handspring, but things speed up and Cross shows off with the superhero landing! MJF does give credit, that was good.

Cover, Cross wins!

Winner: Mike Cross, by pinfall

M-Dogg does it big for this main-show opener! He shows the younger generation how it’s done, will this lead to bigger and better things for the veteran?

Backstage interview with…?

Sean Mooney speaks NOT to the Fallen Angel, but the NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion! There’s a reason we’re all here, and we’er all looking at it. The most-coveted 10 pounds of gold is why Cody wants to step into the spotlight and etch his name in history. It isn’t about walking in someone’s footsteps, but taking a step towards immortality. Aldis can’t sit around and chat, he has to prepare.

Stephen Amell VS Christopher Daniels

The Green Arrow and Prometheus are here to represent Bullet Club against SoCal Uncensored! Will the archer of Queen City knock down the Almighty ROH Grand Slam Champion and declare, “You Have FAILED This City”!?

Ibushi returns and Matt hits rolling senton, Ibushi splash, Ibushi moonsault, Nick 450! The Golden Bang for Your buck! Cover, Mysterio breaks! But Bandido still gets the Meltzer Driver! Cover, The Golden Elite win!!

Winners: The Golden Elite, Matt Jackson pinning

What a wild way to end this world-changing event! Alongside Ibushi, The Bucks take the win at the event they put together. Is this only just the beginning of something truly amazing?


My Thoughts:

What is there to say? The only faults were the technical difficulties and those were in the preshow, which Cody & The Bucks play off perfectly.  This was practically perfect. SCU VS Briscoes was just the opener for the Zero Hour preshow, and that thing tore it up! Great to see SCU get the win here, but I’m wondering if this means anything towards The Addiction VS The Briscoes for the ROH World Tag Team Championships. At the same time, Daniels VS Amell was solid, and Amell earns lots of respect for that table spot. Arrow is a great show, but if CW ever brings it to an end, I think we have a place for Amell to belong.

Then that was the most chaotic battle royal ever, with so many stars from all over, and that amazing twist was so great. I had the weirdest feeling Flip Gordon would be in disguise, and he was! Flip wins and then he has an AMAZING match with a partially Black Machismo Jay Lethal. But given how ROH is planning a big episode with the Ironman ROH WHC match, Lethal VS Gresham, Lethal had to go over. Flip is still not there yet, but if he isn’t at least ROH World TV Champion within the next six months, that’s a damn shame. Also give me more Jordynne Grace. She’s the current Women Superstars Uncensored Spirit Champion, but she deserves to be a star in many more promotions.

MJF VS Cross was a surprise, I don’t remember that being announced. Cross is also Son of Havoc on Lucha Underground, so between that and this, Cross is practically the best wrestler most people don’t know. The Women’s Fatal 4 was great, and really raises the bar for many American promotions that have women’s wrestling. I have not seen ROH give us Sumie Sakai VS Madison Rayne for the WOH Championship, but Tenille Dashwood was on commentary saying she gets her own shot soon. I had a feeling Sumie was going to retain but this definitely leads to that conclusion. Tessa wins, which works because she was really strong in this match, quite literally. This Fatal 4 could’ve been a title match in itself, so that means it will take something truly incredible to defeat her when the title is on the line.

I was surprised to see the NWA WHC match where it was, I really thought this was going to be in a triple header with Omega-Pentagon and the Golden Elite, but being earlier didn’t hurt. There was a lot of story going into this match, and it all works towards the surprise of Cody winning. Brandi and that elbow drop spot was also surprising, and clearly the reason Cody was under the announce desk for so long was because he had to blade a bit. Cody winning this belt, on top of him wanting the IWGP US Championship, I would just love if he was suddenly a cross-promotion dual champion. Hangman VS Janela was great for its action and for integrating BTE. Joey Ryan “returning from the dead” with dick-ciples was so stupid yet perfect for his Undertaker parody. I’d love an extended Hangman VS Ryan program in ROH.

Omega VS Pentagon was so great, and I really thought this could’ve worked as a main event. Omega and Pentagon go the distance and were so great at escaping and stealing finishers, it could’ve been for any title and it was perfect. Jericho showing up was another great surprise, and I love that it’s revisiting their Alpha Club story. There’s the cruise as Jericho mentioned, but I would love if this somehow leads into title for title, IWGP Heavyweight VS Intercontinental Champion. Okada VS Scurll was also great, and I love that Okada used his 205 taunt. I suppose Okada had to win because of his own story of coming back up, but it would’ve been so great if Scurll won to throw the taunts back at Okada.

Then that Six Man Tag was so fast I wouldn’t be surprised if I missed a move or two. Mysterio, Fenix and Bandido worked so well together, but so did Ibushi & The Bucks. It makes sense that The Golden Elite wins because this was pretty much Bullet Club Presents: Amazing Wrestling, but it also works that it had to happen quick. The only flaw here was running out of air-time to show the great celebration for everyone and the entire crowd. But that makes those moments something special just for the Chicago crowd that they’ll surely remember forever.

My Score: 9.8/10

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed.

Lexy Nair is with Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn. First off, congrats on the recent success of the newest video. Thank you, Lexy. And Bowens is facing Brian Cage in tonight’s main event, how- Daddy Ass has us stop there. Let’s talk about everyone going crazy, running wild. The Embassy turning on Swerve, The Elite abusing their authority. Billy isn’t sure if Lexy has watched older wrestling, but Billy has a thing about authority. So if they wanna get wild, if they wanna go nuts, that is right up their aisle!

Caster says that’s right! He also thanks Lexi for saying those nice things about his song. But that song was about him and Bowens going back to the Tag Division. If you read the lyrics, which are great lyrics, but none of those team decided to wrestle The Acclaimed. Perhaps they’re a little too afraid to wrestle the best team alive. So they took the first match they could find, and that turned out to be Bowens VS Brian Cage 1v1. Sure, Brian is The Machine, but there are a lot of machines that are now antiquated, and we know Brian doesn’t have AI in his brain. In fact, he can’t update his software! It’s about time Bowens takes Brian to the junkyard!

Bowens says that’s right! Platinum Max & Daddy Ass said it themselves, there is a lot of chaos and madness going on in AEW! Bowens tells Brian and his cronies that they decided to side with The Elite, well you’re looking at the foundation of AEW! The best tag team alive, the best homegrown stars, The Acclaimed! That train is gonna roll right through Brian tonight, courtesy of the Scissor King! Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! Say it again, EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed!! The Five Tool Player is fired up, but will he need all those tools to dismantle The Machine?

 

Rush VS Cody Chhun!

El Toro Blanco is back again, and this time he is looking to reach the top of AEW. Will he stampede through everyone put in his path until he is adored with AEW gold?

The bell rings, the fans rally up with “FOUR C! FOUR C!” Chhun runs up but Rush dodges! Chhun hits buckles, then Rush CLOBBERS him! Chhun sits in the corner checking his jaw, but Rush goes to the far side. “If you mess with the bull…” You get BULL’S HORNS!! Rush drags Chhun to a cover, Rush wins!

Winner: Rush, by pinfall

Rush stands tall, but he doesn’t even care to celebrate, because this was more an inevitability than a victory to him. But then he sees Chhun stirring, and Rush drags him out of the ring! Rush CHOPS Chhun right down! Then he whips Chhun hard into barriers! The ref reprimands but Rush THROWS Chhun around again! Rush fires down fists, the fans boo as Rush DECKS Chhun! Rush won’t stop, he finds his favorite bright green cord! Rush LASHES Chhun, even as more refs rush out here! Rush CHOKES Chhun with the cord!! The refs all shout for him to stop, and Rush does. But he wants everyone to remember: Nothing happens unless HE says so!!

Rush storms off, spits on Chhun, and then grabs a chair! The refs warn him, so Rush simply stands on the chair to soak up the heat. Will nothing and no one stop Rush from rampaging his way to the top?

 

Lexy Nair is outside the trainer’s room.

She notes that to close Collision, Lance Archer & The Righteous viciously attacked FTR after the match. Bryan Danielson walks out, Lexy asks for a medical update. Well, The Elite put a bounty on Team AEW’s heads, and it seems to have worked. FTR won’t make it to Dynamite next Wednesday. But the Elite also failed, because here’s the thing. The Elite wants to change the world? They don’t even show up on Saturdays! And the failure is that Bryan is still here! So this Wednesday, Bryan will be on Dynamite. The Elite can take whatever shot they want, but they better get it done the first time. Otherwise, they won’t like the consequences.

Bryan heads out, but are The EVPs going to make sure no one makes it to Double or Nothing to oppose them?

 

Deonna Purrazzo VS Robyn Renegade!

The Virtuosa is still seething over her many run-ins with Thunder Rosa, but it seems their rematch isn’t destined to happen just yet. Will Deonna one-up La Mera Mera by beating Robyn worse than Rosa did?

The bell rings, the two circle, and they knuckle lock. Deonna spins to wrangle Robyn, but Robyn rolls back. Robyn wrenches, wristlocks, but Deonna rolls, rolls and gets free. The fans cheer, Deonna smirks, but Robyn runs up. Robyn waistlocks, Deonna switches, but Robyn switches back. Deonna pries free to switch again, then she trips Robyn up. Deonna runs, Robyn stays low, then Robyn hits a rolling fireman’s carry takeover! Robyn runs up but Deonna ducks the kick to roll her up! TWO, and Robyn staggers up into an arm-drag! Deonna has the armlock, the fans cheer, but Robyn endures.

Robyn fights up, Deonna hits another takeover, and she traps the arm. Deonna makes it a cover, ONE as Robyn gets the shoulder up. Deonna knuckle locks, wrenches, then clamps onto the arm. Robyn fights up to whip free, then runs to sunset flip! Deonna stays up, then slaps the arms away to clamp on an ARMBAR! Robyn fights around, flails, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Deonna lets go at 4, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Deonna stalks Robyn, brings her around and whips, but Robyn holds ropes. Deonna ROCKS Robyn, Robyn still holds ropes! Deonna ROCKS Robyn again, whips, but Robyn reverses. Robyn ducks the forearm, and the backhand, then clinches for a HALF NELNSON FACEBUSTER! Robyn fires up, she sits Deonna up, and runs to SHOTGUN her down! Cover, TWO! Robyn is frustrated, but she drags Deonna back up and bumps her off buckles. Robyn CHOPS Deonna, smirks, and winds up to CHOP again! Robyn says one more time, then puts some stank on it. But Deonna dodges to CHOP back! Deonna whips corner to corner, but Robyn reverses.

Robyn runs in, but Deonna puts her on the apron! Robyn ROCKS Deonna first, steps in, but Deonna ARM CODE BREAKERS! Robyn writhes, Deonna storms over, and Deonna drags Robyn up. Deonna knuckle locks, wrenches, then top wristlocks to wrangle Robyn. Deonna traps the arm for a SNAP LOCK! Cover, TWO! Robyn clutches the arm but Deonna is on her again. Deonna pulls on the bad arm, then top wristlocks. Robyn endures as Deonna thrashes the arm, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Deonna wrenches Robyn’s arm. Robyn ROCKS Deonna, but Deonna wrenches again. Robyn fires off a flurry of forearms and the fans fire up! Deonna shoves Robyn but Robyn LARIATS on return! The fans fire up with Robyn, then she wrenches Deonna to reel her in, put her in ropes, and KNEE her! Robyn runs to then STOMP Deonna down! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives and Robyn is frustrated. The fans rally, Robyn drags Deonna up, then fireman’s carries. Deonna slips free, shoves, and BOOTS Robyn down! Deonna slashes her throat and vows to end this! The fans fire up as Deonna drags Robyn up.

Deonna Gotch hooks, but Robyn slips free! Robyn pump handles, but Deonna arm-drags free! Deonna BOOTS the lariat, ARMBAR DDT! FUJIWARA!! Robyn taps, Deonna wins!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by submission

Deonna didn’t even need Venus De Milo, but then she puts that on Robyn anyway!! The ref reprimands, the fans boo, but Deonna makes Robyn suffer in Rosa’s place! But wait, here comes Thunder Rosa!! La Mera Mera rushes the ring, but Deonna runs away! So when does the part about regretting to mess with a Jersey girl come in? Rosa checks Robyn, and Deonna slithers back in! Deonna CLOBBERS Rosa from behind! Oh so that’s the part about Jersey? Rosa gets up, though, and Deonna retreats again. Rosa runs Deonna down and grabs her by the hair! Rosa drags Deonna back to the ring to RAM her into the apron!

The fans fire up as Rosa tells Deonna to fight her now! Rosa puts Deonna in, Deonna rolls out of the ring and runs into the crowd! The fans boo as Deonna flees into the night. When and where will Deonna have to give Rosa this fight?

 

Scorpio Sky speaks.

“I have done things people dream about. I’ve made money, faced legends, won championship after championship after championship. And you might not wanna hear this, but that was easy. And that doesn’t mean I don’t relate. I understand a normal person put in my position would fail. Because since time began, when people wanted to see a star, they’d look up at the Sky. And all that does is put me in the perfect place to reach down and lift you all up here with me. So to all the fans around the world, I’m coming back. And I’m here for you.” But will this comeback finally be the time Scorpio Sky reaches the top of the mountain?

 

Backstage interview with Sonjay Dutt.

Lexy Nair says Sonjay asked for this time, what is on his mind? Sonjay says first off, he sure doesn’t need Lexy here so hit the bricks. Skedaddle, peace, see ya. Lexy sighs and leaves, and Sonjay says this is for Bryan Danielson. The Elite have put a price out on Bryan’s head, and Sonjay just got off the phone with them, they have worked out quite the deal. Bryan says he’ll be on Dynamite, and so is Sonjay. But no, Sonjay isn’t the one that’ll take him out once and for all. This Wednesday, it will be The American Dragon VS… The Indian Giant! Yeah, that’s right! The one in a billion, Satnam Singh!

And y’know what? Dragon meat is expensive, so hopefully he goes well with a little chicken masala. This Wednesday, it will be one hell of a cookout! Sonjay laughs to himself, but will Bryan be the one with the last laugh after taking on this giant roadblock?

 

PROGRAMMING NOTE for Rampage next week!

Yes, Rampage returns to Friday nights next week, BUT at a special time of 6:30 Eastern, 3:30 Pacific! Make sure your DVRs know so you don’t miss this special Double or Nothing weekend edition!

 

Brian Cage VS Anthony Bowens w/ The Acclaimed!

The Machine turned on Swerve and then got beat by Swerve, crossing him off the list of top contenders. But will he reboot and head for other title opportunities? Or will The Acclaimed prove they can get it done in any division?

As always, Platinum Max has a diss track! “I heard Brian Cage got captain plans. We leave you bleeding so hard, you got menstrual cramps! Damn you are ugly, lookin’ pathetic. You are so small, get off the Ozempic! When did Brian Cage stop lifting weights? Beat him so bad, whip his ass into shape! Run you outta town just like Daim, because in Portland, Everybody Loves The Acclaimed!” Bowens then says, “PORTLAAAAND~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does~! The fans are fired up, but will Cage get his stuff in in response?

The bell rings and the fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” Cage and Bowens circle, tie up, and Cage shoves Bowens away! Cage flexes, fans are torn, and Cage says to scissor that. Bowens has Cage hold on, and then Bowens flexes. The fans cheer for Bowens, and he does scissor that! Cage runs up, Bowens gets around, then CHOPS! And CHOPS! Cage TOSSES Bowens to a corner, takes a swing, but Bowens dodges! Bowens CHOPS and CHOPS, but Cage shoves Bowens away. Cage runs up, Bowens gets under and kicks low. Bowens whips, Cage reverses, but Bowens goes up and over. Bowens hurdles, headlocks, but Cage powers out.

Bowens hurdles, slips around the lariat and DDTS! Cover, ONE!! Cage is tougher than that but the fans fire up behind Bowens. Bowens gets Cage up but Cage SPINEBUSTERS him! Cage says no more scissors! Cage storms up to RAM into Bowens! And RAM in again! And then CHOP! The fans “WOO~!” while Cage stalks Bowens. Cage bumps Bowens off buckles, then says one more time! NOT! Cage trolls the fans, whips Bowens, then runs up to UPPERCUT! LARIAT! SAIDO! Cage asks who betta but the fans are torn. Cage storms over to Bowens, drags him up, and ROCKS him with a forearm. Cage CHOPS, ROCKS Bowens again, then CHOPS again.

The ref counts, Cage whips corner to corner, then runs up. Bowens dodges the splash, blocks the kick, CLUBS the knee then KNEE JAMMERS into a DRAGON SCREW! Cage writhes and flounders to the apron while Bowens catches his breath. Bowens storms up, brings Cage up, but Cage swings! Bowens ducks, feints, then kicks the legs out! Cage hits apron on the way down, and Bowens aims. Bowens slingshots but Cage moves, so Bowens just goes to the apron. But Cage blocks the Penalty Kick to bring Bowens down, POST BOMB!! Cage gloats, then leaves Bowens behind, while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Bowens writhes, Cage goes back out to drag him up, and RAMS him into barriers! Cage brings Bowens around, SMACKS him off the apron, then drags him up again. Cage whips Bowens hard into steel steps! Bowens falls over in a heap, Cage flexes, then Cage refreshes the ring count. Cage drags Bowens up but Bowens pushes him away. Cage BOOTS Bowens down, then brings him up for an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Cage gloats some more, steps into the ring, and storms up on Bowens. Bowens kicks low, throws hands, but Cage JUMP KNEES! Cage digs his boots into Bowens at the ropes, lets off, and Bowens sputters.

Cage CHOKES Bowens again, the ref counts, and Cage lets off again. Cage drags Bowens up, scoops and uses him for bicep curls! Cage then TOSSES Bowens away! Cage swaggers around, flexes, and covers, TWO! Bowens KICKS Cage from below! And kicks him again! Cage KICKS Bowens, whips him to ropes, then CLOBBERS Bowens! Cage clamps onto Bowens with a chinlock and grinds him down! Bowens endures, Cage grinds him into the mat, but the fans rally up. Bowens fights up to his feet, throws body shots, but Cage KNEES him away. Cage wags his finger, gloats a bit more, then runs corner to corner to forearm smash!

Cage soaks up more cheers and jeers as Rampage returns to single picture. Cage run sin, but Bowens BOOTS him! And BOOTS again! Bowens goes up, leaps, but Cage catches him! Cage suplexes, but Bowens cradle counters! TWO!! Cage escapes but Bowens ducks the discus! Bowens hobbles but he still ROCKS Cage, throws more hands, but Cage SOBATS! KICKS! Cage runs, Bowens follows. Cage dodges, Bowens redirects and spins Cage for Rock, Paper, Scissors, SUPERKICK! The fans fire up with Bowens! Bowens mule kicks, front kicks, runs and FAMOUSERS! Cover, TWO!! Cage survives and Bowens can’t believe it!

The fans rally up and Bowens rises. Bowens waits on Cage, runs up to clinch, but Cage fires elbows! Cage waistlocks, full nelsons and SLAMS Bowens down! Cover, TWO!

Bowens waits on Cage, fireman’s carries, but the bad leg stops him! Cage shoves Bowens at the ref!

Cage runs up, Bowens sends him at the ref! Bowens waistlocks but Cage LOW BLOWS!! The fans boo but Cage reels Bowens in! DRILL CLAW!!! Cover, Cage wins!!

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

Bowens may be an excellent former Tag & Trios Champion, but sadly he isn’t at the level needed as a singles guy. Will The Acclaimed have to regroup and focus on going after The Elite? Will The Machine be granted golden opportunities by said Elite?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage to once again follow up Collision, but I’m relieved that next week is going to be a partial return to normal schedule. Because as great as the matches here were, they just felt thrown together to tangentially tell stories. For example, Kyle VS Lee was a great match but Kyle has beef with The House of Black but they didn’t want Kyle getting one over on Buddy or Brody before facing Malakai next Wednesday. Shane Taylor Promotions deserves a touch better than being fed to the bigger stories, but maybe they come around as a trio after Double or Nothing to face like Bang Bang Gang or something.

And even our main event was an example of this. Great promo from Acclaimed, great rap from Caster as usual, but also a good choice for Cage to still win out. Cage has done singles champ stuff, is going to be the singles champ guy in whatever the former Mogul Embassy becomes after this, or even just a singles guy all on his own. Rush of course squashes his opponent tonight but him going after Chhun after was a good touch. At the same time, I kinda wanted the ref to reverse the decision and disqualify Rush after the match, throwing him into a worse rage and beating up on Chhun more. And again, why no La Faccion Ingobernable? Donde esta Dralistico, Preston Vance y Jose?

Good match from Deonna VS Robyn but of course Deonna won. Rosa going after Deonna and Deonna running away was not what I was expecting, it’s rather disappointing, and why not just give us their rematch with escalated stipulations already? Deonna VS Rosa in a Last Woman Standing maybe? Iron Woman Match so that it goes right to half an hour? Something cool like that would really show Tony Khan finally wants to do more with the Women’s Division after promising it like two or three times already.

And very good promos from Bryan and Sonjay Dutt to set up Bryan VS Satnam. I would think Bryan wins, but there’s a good chance Team Triple J goes after him post match anyway. As I just said in the Collision article, Anarchy in the Arena being No Disqualifications of the highest level, we could actually get way more than just the eight men advertised as the roster starts choosing sides, a very Avengers Civil War/Endgame type situation.

My Score: 8.6/10

Will Ospreay VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Aerial Assassin gave Roderick Strong one last warning on Dynamite, but this is about paying back that knockout shot last week! Will “OSPREAY! OSPREAY!” be cashing receipts tonight? Or will it be Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?

But before things get going, here comes The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy, Taven & Bennett walk on out, clearly not leaving things at the face to face on Wednesday. Roddy joins commentary, the bell rings and Ospreay runs up to SHOTGUN Shane! The fans fire up while Shane bails out! Ospreay aims and PLANCHAS! Down goes Shane and the fans fire up with Ospreay! Ospreay gets Shane up and puts him in, Roddy says “Good for him.” PIP PIP CHEERIO! Cover, ONE!! Shane gets up, Ospreay kicks and CLUBS him, then fires forearms! Ospreay whips but Shane blocks. Ospreay CLUBS and SOBATS, then reels Shane in.

Shane suplexes first! Ospreay slips free, waistlocks, but Shane switches. Shane shoves, HURDLES, then CLOBBERS Ospreay! The Kingdom applauds while Shane paces around. Shane talks some trash, drags Ospreay up, and HEADBUTTS him! The fans rally for Ospreay, Ospreay fires forearms, but Shane ROCKS him right back! Ospreay flops out to the apron, the fans boo Shane, but then Taven talks smack. The ref tells Taven to back off, Shane tells The Kingdom this is how you finish the job! Shane CHOPS Ospreay and Ospreay sputters with the air going out of his lungs! Shane mocks the fans, Roddy says keep up those chops.

Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley says, “At Double or Nothing in Las Vegas, Konosuke Takeshita-san will try to score himself a shot at the IWGP (World Heavyweight) Championship. He’s been a hell of a blue chipper for quite some time. Now, he’s got a new attitude, some new representation. And he came after me. Me. Trying to put a big ol’ notch in that gun belt. Hey, I get it. I’ve done far worse. What’s my secret? What’s the secret of the BCC? When you stand where I stand in this sport, you get used to being a target. How do we survive? Guys like you, The Callis Family, you’re in it for the gold, you’re in it for the green and chasing fame and fortune, adulation, Instagram, all that.

“BCC, we don’t give a rat’s ass about any of that. We do this because this is who we are. This is our nature. We don’t hunt because we are hungry, we hunt because we are lions. We like it. We never, ever play for money. We play for blood.” Claudio Castagnoli adds that a lot of times, he’s the voice of reason here. Even when no one listens, it’s fine. Things just keep repeating and repeating and he doesn’t like standing here to talk to the camera, because it is the most awful thing to do. What matters is going out there and showing it week after week! And y’know how many people stand back here and tell you how good they are? How great they are?

They have passion! They practice their lines in the mirror! Then they come here, tell you how really, really good they are, and how it’s just been their dream all their lives. And it’s all fake! So fake because they don’t live it one day of their lives. It’s like The Emperor’s New Clothes. Only the BCC can see it. They see through the fake, through the facade. They see through it because while others try to make a name off BCC, that’s a big mistake. You are dealing with the real deal right here! Moxley likes it. Takeshita, you started this game. At Double or Nothing, the BCC finishes it. Will The Maniac tear down The Alpha and send a message to the rest?

AEW hears from Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey.

It was backstage after Dynamite that The Learning Tree, after getting patched up, told Hook, “Wow, I can tell that I touched a nerve there when you hit me with that microphone and made me bleed my own blood.” But Hook, Jericho isn’t mad. It tells him that Hook is learning what it takes to be a champion again. Hook was the “For The World” Champion, and will be again some day, but it’ll take some time. Hook is still learning. Jericho is glad Hook is in the #JerichoVortex and hit him hard enough to make him bleed. It really hurts, but y’know what? It also makes Jericho proud. Makes him proud to see Hook get a little more serious! This is serious business!

This is what The Learning Tree is here for! To make Hook a better person and a better wrestler, both inside the ring and out. Jericho will need stitches, and will gladly get them. Because it is proof that Hook is learning what The Learning Tree is teaching. So in a roundabout way, thank you, Hook. And good luck in the qualifiers. Wow, that really hurts. Really got him with that mic. Hook is “learning,” but will he be the one teaching Jericho a thing or two?

Well, just like Shibata did with Hook, Bryan Keith makes his way out while Shibata’s leaving. The Bounty Hunter gives The Wrestler a tip of the hat, will this be the final piece to the puzzle? Or will things get literally much bigger for Dynamite?

As the Iron Savages make their entrance, Jacked Jameson tells “all you fat morons, skinny idiots, and Low T Losers to shut up.” The fans boo instead, but Jameson says he rode the Max Rail Line from the airport to the hotel downtown, and all along the tracks, it is filled with trash! Now that they’re here in the Moto Center, it’s funny, because it’s also filled with trash! The fans boo being insulted, but Jameson says he can’t wait to leave this dump. But this is the Sauce Hoss, Beefcake Boulder! He’s sippin’ sauce, livin’ hoss, and taking everybody to #TIDDYCITY! And then he just attacks Keith!!

Backstage interview with Pac.

Lexy Nair has found The Bastard somewhere in the bowels of the arena, and says that last week, The Bang Bang Gang had a message for him. Does Pac care to respond? Pac says he couldn’t care less! But obviously, he saw their little message. Credit where credit is due, those guys are very funny chaps. Hilarious, even. And typically, they’re naughty behavior would really ruffle his bastard feathers. But not today. He couldn’t care less. Pac hasn’t felt a thing in weeks! And you expect him to care about those idiots?! In fact, let this be an open invitation! Make him feel something! Make him feel anything, boys! He’s begging you, daring you! Make him care. Try harder.

And as for Lexy, just leave him alone. She nods and leaves. The Bastard is in no mood, but will that all change the next time Bullet Club Gold takes aim at him?

 

Bullet Club Gold is here!

AEW returns from break, and wait! They’ve attacked Pac! They drag him out here on stage! Jay White kneels beside Pac, gets a mic, and makes Pac sit up. “I bet you care now, don’t you? Bastard.” The Switchblade & The Gunns leave Pac down and out, and White says he told Pac to stay out of their business. Is Pac going to heed the Bang Bang Gang’s warning? Or is he only going to escalate things from here?

 

The Patriarchy speaks.

Christian Cage tells Nick Wayne, “You have a match right here tonight on Collision. And it’s jut a precursor to this coming Wednesday on Dynamite, because you are gonna be facing… Swerve Strickland. I know you’re ready for it. Yo have our support.” Nick thanks Christian, and says he’s been meaning to talk with him. A year ago, when Swerve jumped him in the garage, Nick was just a boy. A kid. But ever since teaming with Christian, he has changed. Nick is now a man! And tonight, this is just a warm-up. Nick knows he can beat Swerve on his own. Nick heads out, Christian & Mother Shayna beam with pride. Will Swerve’s House soon end up in Wayne’s World?

 

Orange Cassidy VS Isiah Kassidy!

Freshly Squeezed is certainly feeling out of sorts after Trent Beretta made things all about #JustTrent. But likewise, Private Party might have to get serious as sadly, Marq Quen is again on the shelf. Cassidy or Kassidy, who wins to get themselves back on the right track?

Trent is disappointed but Callis is pleased. Is Cassidy really going to end up turning to the dark side- er, Don Callis Family?

Trent says being here ringside, it is plainly obvious that he is a better wrestler than Cassidy! The fans boo but Trent says the only reason Cassidy won was because he cheated! Trent claims Cassidy is a sociopath who thinks rules don’t apply to him! But they do! Rules matter!

But while we’re all out here, Trent wants to issue a challenge for Double or Nothing! A straight up wrestling match! Trent VS “that narcissist,” Orange Cassidy! Cassidy DECKS Trent!! Cassidy drags Trent over the railing, security separates them fast! The fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” but we’ll see that soon enough. Will Trent suffer for what he did?

Nick Wayne VS Jack Cartwheel!

The Prodigy of The Patriarchy, the honorary son of Christian Cage, is looking to get payback on Swerve himself next Wednesday. But will he be ready to make AEW into Wayne’s World? Or will he struggle to even get past the acrobatic wonder that is Jack Cartwheel?

The bell rings, Wayne runs up to BOOT Jack down! Wayne stomps away on Jack, lets off to soak up heat, and then takes aim again. Wayne runs corner to corner, but Jack cartwheels away!

Six Man Tag: Bryan Danielson & FTR VS Lance Archer & The Righteous!

It would seem there’s a bounty out for The Elite’s opponents in Anarchy in the Arena. The American Dragon, Cash & Dax don’t mind, though, because they’re always down for a fight!

Three-fourths of Team AEW made it work, and surely The Elite is not happy about this! But then The Righteous attack! Archer hits Bryan with an APRON CHOKE SLAM! This was never about the match but about the damage done! AUTUMN SUNSHINE for Dax!! Archer goes looking under the ring while The Righteous get Cash up. Vinnie finds a chair! Archer CHOKES Dax, Dutch JAMS Cash with the chair! That chair is set down, Archer uses another to JAM Dax again and again! The fans boo, but no back-up is coming with Eddie injured and Darby absent. Archer lifts Cash, for a FULL METAL BLACKOUT!!

Cash writhes on top of the steel, but the torture isn’t over! The chair is put on top of Dax and Vinnie goes up! FULL METAL SWANTON BOMB!! But here comes Daniel Garcia! He has a chair, too! Garcia JAMS Archer, DECKS Vinnie, then hits a SAIDO on Dutch!! Garcia runs up to clothesline Dutch up and out! The fans fire up as Garcia runs off Vinnie and Archer, too! But was the save a little too late with FTR suffering the worst of it? Are The Elite going to make sure there’s no one to even be on Team AEW?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision here, and of course more is set up for Double or Nothing. Very good promo from Moxley and Claudio, and Moxley VS Takeshita is made, but it will just be an IWGP World Heavyweight Championship  Eliminator, not a straight up title match. Maybe that means Takeshita wins so that he earns a title match for Forbidden Door, and then he loses there. Though, if that’s the case, Moxley must be getting past Evil at NJPW Dominion just a few weeks before Forbidden Door. Moxley’s great in the ring and all but I’m starting to agree with Shota Umino in his interview, where he said NJPW should not be some feeder to AEW.

Interesting for AEW to have Collision stationed in one spot for a six week stretch like that. Is this to make up for bad ratings/attendance for Collision? I mean, if they keep Collision interesting during that time, sure. Having something like tonight’s FTW Contender Series could help. I figured Hook would make it in, and same for Shibata. It seems the new attitude for The Iron Savages won’t count towards anything on AEW programming, Keith took Boulder out pretty easy. Hook VS Shibata VS Keith is going to be great stuff, and seeing as Jericho’s promo naturally called out Hook, there’s a good chance Hook wins. Though it’d be a great twist in the story if it wasn’t Hook or even Shibata but Keith getting his shot so that he can have another PPV title match under his belt.

Great stuff out of Ospreay VS Taylor, and I figured Ospreay would win. Great little brawl of him fighting off The Kingdom, though I was kinda hoping at least Kyle Fletcher would show up to connect the dots on Don Callis Family backing each other up. Great match of Cassidy VS Kassidy, even with Trent showing up ringside as a partial distraction. Great win for Cassidy, and Cassidy VS Trent is now made for Double or Nothing. That could go either way depending on how this courting of Cassidy goes for Don Callis, which also probably relates to how things go for Ospreay in that International Championship match. I still don’t want Cassidy to go Heel and I still don’t see Callis making a Face run work.

Very good promo from Pac to call out Bang Bang Gang, and wow I didn’t think Bang Bang Gang would get him so soon. Still unclear if this becomes a trios thing even though the Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions do need to defend those titles at some point. But even just Pac VS White 1v1 would be awesome stuff, would love to see it. Good promo from The Patriarchy, and of course Nick Wayne wins, even though this has also been his first singles match in months. He sure isn’t beating Swerve but that probably ends up just a set-up so the Patriarchy can beat Swerve down, keeping the go-home math in Swerve’s favor.

Very good match from Deeb VS Anna, and what an out of the box move for Storm to take Deeb’s banner and make it a dress. Still hard to say what happens at Double or Nothing, but the fans are still just so in love with Storm, it doesn’t feel like she’s losing the title. And great Six Man Tag main event, great win for Bryan & FTR but I should’ve figured there’d be a beatdown. Garcia making the save is great, and honestly it’s a little surprising he wasn’t “the fourth man” over Darby. Garcia has teamed with FTR before, there’s history with Bryan when Garcia was torn between Bryan and Jericho, something about that makes even more sense than Darby just not liking The Bucks & Jack Perry.

But at the same time, Anarchy in the Arena being No Disqualifications, Garcia can still get involved to help. In fact, many AEW wrestlers could get involved to turn this into AEW’s Avengers Civil War/Endgame whatever. Which would be a great way to top off the PPV that makes five years of AEW, honestly.

My Score: 8.7/10
