PLAY BY PLAY

The Thank You Celebrashon begins now!

Soul Train Jones is here in Chicago with a smaller version of a Macy Thanksgiving Parade as he welcomes us to “the greatest night in television history!” He introduces to us, the Greatest of All Time, Le Champion, Chris Jericho! The AEW World Champion walks out to all the fanfare he feels he deserves, and already has a little bit of the bubbly on hand. Jericho joins STJ in the ring and Chicago chants, “Thank You, Jericho!” Jericho tells Chicago to sit down and shut up now. This is HIS celebrashon, and he doesn’t need them messing any of it up. Tonight, Jericho gets that thanks. Not from the Chicagoans that don’t matter, but the AEW and TNT top brass! As Soul Train said, this is going to be the best night in TV history. Some of the fans are lucky enough to have a 50 cents off coupon for the newest Chris Jericho t-shirt. Yes, cents, not percent.

But moving on, “after months of discussion and investigation,” the greatest tasting grapes were found in Nepal and the Inner Circle has created the official Little Bit of the Bubbly! Go to the website now to order yours, supplies are limited. Fans chant for the “Bubbly! Bubbly!” as Jericho opens the bottle and sprays some around. He pours himself and Soul Train a toast. They sip, and it tastes so good. Now Jericho brings out his best friends in the world, the Inner Circle! Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz come out, bringing extra Bubbly and other party favors. Sammy has a mic to say to his “father figure,” that he will thank Jericho. They’ve got all sorts of gifts, but the best gift is what Sammy has. A picture may be worth 1000 words, but this is priceless. Sammy takes the veil off the mystery item, it’s a Jericho-Sammy cardboard cutout of them hugging! And then they recreate it live! Thank you, Spanish God.

Santana and Ortiz are up next, and they have a Boricua gift basket. It’s the Winter, so that means it is flu season. Mama told him that you just gotta put this all over, and you’re all good! And then they have a picture of Hector Lavoe! But that’s not all, there’s some choncletas. These double as weapons. There’s something in a brown bag. This is Little Bit of a 40. Best of all, Jericho is an official Boricua. They give him a Puerto Rico headband. This is already the greatest night of his life, but where is the Big Hurt, Jake Hager? They look around but Hager comes out with a gift of his own. The little critter is reluctant to come out. This is Chris Jerigoat. Jericho does want to know one more thing. What is this big box? What’s in the box? Is it a surprise? It has him all over it. This is the biggest surprise the Inner Circle has for Jericho. It’s… PAPA JERICHO, TED IRVINE!!

Jericho is amazed to see his dad here, and his dad is great to be back in New York City! No, Dad, no, it’s Chicago… Oh? The Blackhawks? Yeah. And Chicago cheers for them. Oh quiet down, they’re having a father-son moment. Irvine played for the Ranges, and they beat the Blackhawks all the time! It was brutal! Still are brutal. Irvine remembers some guy named Bobby Hull. Chicago Blackhawks were and always will be wimps! Well, what’s in the bag? He has gifts all for the Inner Circle. They’re custom jerseys based on the New York Rangers! Chicago says “Rangers Suck!” but the Inner Circle tries on their jerseys. Even Soul Train gets one! You’ve got Ruffian, Thug, Big Hurt, Spanish God, and of course, Le Champion. This is a lot of fun, huh, Chicago?

But time for the knitty gritty. This is the official statement from the AEW and TNT brass. Time to read it to the crowd. Actually, no, he won’t read it. Jericho makes the ring announcer read it. Fans taunt Jericho, saying “You Can’t Read! You Can’t Read!” What’s this kid’s name again? Justin Roberts. Where’s he from? Here in Chicago, actually. Where did he graduate? Buffalo Grove High. Well then Buffalo Grove sucks. Now read this official thank you statement. Justin takes the paper and reads it aloud.

“Dear Chris Jericho, on behalf of Warner Media, TNT and the entire AEW Family, we wanted to take our time and extend our sincerest gratitude and appreciation for all your contributions in helping AEW become the most talked about wrestling league in the world. Your exemplary service to AEW continues to demonstrate not only the performer but also the man Chris Jericho truly is. Not only are you Le Champion, but you are our champion. Thank you.” Fans boo, not believing a word of that. Jericho didn’t like Justin’s tone. Does Justin not think Jericho deserves the thank you? Huh? Huh? They beat up Justin Roberts! But here comes the marching band!? They beat up the Inner Circle, because they’re really SCU! Soul Train gets a Cobra Clutch! Or is a Million Dollar Dream? Scorpio finishes it with a LARIAT! The Inner Circle is furious but Scorpio will look to add on. Will Scorpio be saying “thank you” after he takes the title from Jericho?

 

Marco Martinez joins AEW commentary!

The All Elite Fleet announcer joins JR and Excalibur for the night while Tony Schiavone is with the Georgia Bulldogs! Marco looks forward to this big tag team match up next! And after what Justin Roberts just went through, Dasha Gonzalez steps in to introduce it!

Best Friends VS The Lucha Brothers!

Trent beat Pentagon but Rey Fenix beat Nick Jackson. Tag teams collide again, but they don’t even wait for the bell! Pentagon and Fenix blindside Trent, Chuckie and Orange… Gobbledy? Fans are divided as Fenix and Pentagon each shout, “CERO, MIEDO!” But the Best Friends send the brothers into each other instead! Then they set things up as Orange climbs, to LEAP! Seems turkeys can fly. Best Friends get the Lucha Brothers in the ring and the bell rings.

Trent and Chuckie go corner to corner to corner clothesline, then the other way. Then they hug! Pentagon bails out of the ring and Trent grabs Fenix. He feeds Fenix to Chuckie’s sexy knee, then adds a knee of his own! Cover, TWO, but Trent keeps his cool. Trent drags Fenix up but Fenix fights back. Trent shoves, Trent dodges and Pentagon cheap shots. Fenix tiger feints Chuckie away, then “Uno! Dos! Tres!” DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!

Trent tumbles into buckles hard, then gets a BACKSTABBER! Pentagon fires up and taunts Chuckie but the ref keeps Chuckie back. Pentagon puts Trent on the ropes to body shot, then takes off the glove. He tosses the glove to the ref, to KICK Trent’s leg! Tag to Fenix and Fenix SUPERKICKS Trent immediately! Fenix stays between Trent and Chuckie before bringing Trent up. Fenix snapmares, builds speed, but then stops to SUPERKICK again! Cover, TWO! Fenix gets in Chuckie’s face as Trent flounders to an open corner. Fenix drags Trent up, CHOPS him in the corner, then tags Pentagon. Pentagon drags Trent up to whip, to SUPERKICK him out of the ring! Fenix puts Trent back in for his brother as Chicago joins in with “CERO! MIEDO!” Pentagon covers, ROPEBREAK!

MIEDO!” Pentagon double stomps Trent’s butt! Cover, TWO! Trent clutches his Baretta as fans rally up. Pentagon drags Trent up and tucks the arms, but Trent slips out.

The brothers whip Chuckie corner to corner and then Pentagon runs in. Chuckie goes up and over to let Pentagon crash into buckles. Fenix runs in but gets overhead suplex’d onto his brother! Fans rally up as the brothers bail out. Chuckie tags Trent, then FLIES to take the brothers out! Trent builds speed as Chuckie sets the brothers up, but Fenix gets loose to SUPERKICK Trent! Pentagon is up top, SUPER DESTROYER!! Cover, TWO!?! Trent lives and Pentagon can’t believe it! But wait, Orange is back up. He flaps his wings, and that distracts Pentagon! Trent rolls Pentagon up, TWO, SUPERKICK!

Pentagon tags Fenix so that he can go after Orange Gobbledy himself. But Chuckie leaps over Orange to CANNONBALL Pentagon! Fenix runs at Trent, big rolling sobat! He rolls Trent, then somersaults, but into the Alabama! CRUNCHY BUSTER! Cover, Best Friends win!!

Winners: Best Friends, Trent by pinfall

That was a big win for Best Friends, they might be going up the ranks! Will this help earn them an AEW World Tag Team Championship match?

 

AEW shares their Power Rankings!

The Women’s Division top 5 contenders are as follows: 5th place, Allie; 4th place, Nyla Rose; 3rd place, Emi Sakura; 2nd place, Britt Baker; and in 1st place, Hikaru Shida! Riho might be facing her former classmate in the near future, will #1 Shida become the one?

 

Bea Priestly & Emi Sakura VS Hikaru Shida & Kris Statlander!

Speaking of, the samurai of Stardom and #1 contender teams up with the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien to build some momentum towards that inevitable encounter. Will Shida stay strong when faced with her mentor and beastly Priestly?

Teams sort out and Kris steps up, but Sakura and Bea attack her and Shida before the bell! They knock Shida off the apron and double hip Kris, but she holds ropes. Bea runs in but is tossed out, and then Kris kicks Sakura. Sakura throws Kris out but Kris lands on the apron. Kris has to kick Bea off her leg, then she MOONSAULTS right onto her! Fans fire up as Kris goes up top, and leaps to missile dropkick Sakura! And even kips up! Tag to Shida, who then hurries right out to get a chair! But we’ve seen this before, she stands the chair up and runs, but Emi takes a seat. She “sips tea,” but Shida boots her out of the chair! Shida goes again, to LEAP! Bea gets clear so only Sakura takes the flying knee! Bea clubs Shida down and fans boo. Bea soaks up all the heat as AEW goes picture in picture.

Bea puts Shida in the ring to bump her off buckles. She grinds a boot into Shida’s face, but lets up at the ref’s count. Bea drags Shida up by her hair and bumps her off more buckles. Tag to Sakura and she throws Shida by her hair! Sakura brings Shida up but Shida blocks the scoop to scoop Sakura back. But Sakura claws Shida’s back! Sakura “apologizes” before she brings Shida up in a waistlock. Shida standing switches, but Sakura pulls hair again! The ref reprimands and counts, but Sakura takes his arm in hers to do-si-do! But then Sakura taunts Shida, Shida runs in, and Sakura uses the ref’s own arm to clothesline Shida down! The ref apologizes, but Sakura raises his hand in victory. The ref is not pleased with Sakura’s playing around, but she goes after Shida’s legs.

Sakura hooks Shida’s legs then grabs the arms. She sings, Chicago sings, and Sakura brings Shida up in the Romero Special! Sakura’s hitting the high note before tossing Shida aside! Tag to Bea and she goes right at Shida on the ropes to scrape her boot. AEW returns to single picture as Bea runs in, to boot wash Shida! Cover, TWO!! Shida barely escapes but Bea drags her back up. Tag to Sakura and Sakura has her mic stand. She parades around with it but the ref warns her not to use it. He and Sakura fight over it, Shida grabs Sakura into a sleeper hold! Sakura slips out and around, and uses the microphone stand to help in the cobra twist! Sakura’s singing again as she stretches Shida. The ref takes the mic stand away and Shida gets loose as Sakura “cries.” Sakura stomps Shida as the fans jeer the ref for being a spoiled sport. Tag to Bea as Sakura “cries” more.

Bea pushes Shida into a corner to stand on her chest! She lets up and the ref reprimands her. Fans rally up for Shida as Bea grinds her forearms into her. The ref counts, Bea lets up, and then whips Shida corner to corner. Shida reverses, but Bea goes up and over! Shida scoops Bea and shoves her in between the ropes!

And they roll and roll and roll, finally ending on a cover, TWO!! Sakura is dizzy but Kris is right on her. Kris scoops but Sakura slips out to a dragon sleeper, twisting facebuster! Kris crawls to a corner and Sakura gets the “Boom boom clap” going. Sakura has some fans singing along, but most boo as she runs at Kris for the cross body! Bea is up fast, leaps, DUMDUM STOMPS!

Bea flounders into the ref, Sakura uses her mic stand to CLOBBER Kris! Bea has Kris up, SAIDO! Sakura La Magistrol, Sakura and Priestly win!!

Winners: Emi Sakura & Bea Priestly, Sakura by pinfall

Shida protests, she saw that mic stand! But the ref can’t call what he doesn’t see. Does this change the power rankings enough to change Riho’s match card?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“Months ago, I declared war on anybody in AEW that wanted to stand in my way.” That hasn’t changed. Every obstacle, every setback, every new scar, Moxley continues to push forward, “blazing a trail to the top of the hill.” Moxley is napalm death. Many look over their shoulders, say their prayers and hope the inevitable never comes, but is there anyone else out there that wants to get Moxley before Moxley gets them? Someone who has a death wish. “This is a call to arms to anybody who wants to step up and be hero. Be a hero! Or get seriously, seriously hurt trying.” Moxley keeps that open challenge open, who answers his call?

 

Cody VS Matt Knicks!

The American Nightmare returns! Betrayal of a best friend and a beat down by a brute isn’t enough to break him, but will he be able to get back on track after busting open his face?

The bell rings and Cody shakes Knicks’ hand to show this is respectful. The two tie up, go around but break. Cody and Knicks tie up again, Cody trips Knicks up. Knicks gets up and ties up with Cody again. Cody headlocks but Knicks powers him to a corner. The ref counts and Knicks backs off, to kick low! So much for respect. Cody kicks back and hits the Rhodes Uppercut! Then the springboard CUTTER! Fans fire up with Cody as he fires up and takes off the weight belt! He tosses it to the fans! And then puts on a FIGURE FOUR! Knicks endures, but taps! Cody wins!

Winner: Cody, by submission

The American Nightmare feels great getting back in the ring, but he wants to speak. He gets a mic, and calls out MJF! “We don’t have to wait. Let’s do this right here, let’s do this right now!” Wait, what the hell is that coming out from under the ring!? Off comes the mask, and it’s The Blade, Andy Williams! He attacks Cody, but why!? And who is that following him? The Butcher, Braxton Sutter! Sutter suplexes Cody to combine with Williams’ BACKSTABBER! Fans boo The Butcher and The Blade, but why are they after the American Nightmare? Who is this emerging next?! Allie as The Bunny has brought two dark and dangerous men to AEW, but to what end?

 

AEW is picture in picture as Cody gets medical attention.

He’s already got the stitches in his eyes, and his ribs can’t bad ribs can’t be all that much better. Will he have a new threat to worry about before even considering MJF?

 

Kenny Omega VS PAC!

The Best Bout Machine was bested by The Bastard the last time AEW was in Chicago, so that is a loss he is looking to redeem. Will Omega beat the #1 ranked male in AEW to make big leaps towards the AEW World title?

The bell rings and fans are fired up already! Omega and Pac circle, tie up, and go around to a corner. Pac has Omega on the ropes but the ref calls for the break. Pac lets up, to shove Omega. Omega shoves back, then kicks and headlocks. Pac powers out but Omega runs him over. Omega runs, Pac drops down and then leaps over. Things keep moving, Pac leaps but Omega runs and slides to dropkick a leg out! Omega runs for the Kotaru Krusher, but Pac handsprings through! But Omega just saw this with Jack Evans on AEW Dark, so he full nelsons for a SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Omega drags Pac up, powerbomb lift, BUCKLE BOMB!  Then he whips, for a pop-up SPINE BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Pac survives that high speed assault and bails out. Omega kneels, the Terminator drums begin, and Omega builds speed. Omega FLIES to take Pac out!

The ref checks on both men, that landing on the ramp slows Omega down but fans rally for “A E DUB!” Omega gets up, puts Pac in, then walks off the leg. But Pac shotgun dropkicks Omega off the apron! The ref starts a ring count but Pac goes out quick to put Omega back in. Pac climbs up but Omega swings. Pac shoulders in, slingshots up and over, but Omega redirects and full nelsons. Pac fights out fast with elbows, but Omega reels him back in for a SNAP DRAGON! Omega goes out to join Pac on the apron, but he wants to suplex Pac off the apron! Pac holds on for dear life, so Omega clubs him on the back. Omega half nelsons, but Pac denies the full. Omega hops down, Pac climbs up, SUPER MOONSAULT! Direct hit wipes them both out again! Fans are all fired up as the two men are down again. A ring count begins as AEW goes picture in picture.

Pac and Omga start to stir, and even sit up. Pac stands first, and gets in at 6. Omega is in after, and both men are in opposite corners. Omega runs in but Pac gets clear, to slingshot CUTTER! Pac sees Omega floundering and heads up top. Pac aims, and hits a missile dropkick! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Pac is furious but he just didn’t see the ropes. Pac stomps Omega while he’s down, putting him in a corner. Pac whips Omega corner to corner hard! Omega grits his teeth in pain, but Pac mockingly applauds. Pac stomps Omega around but Omega hits back with body shots. Pac eggs him on and gives a big knee low. Pac snapmares Omega into a chinlock. Pac grinds Omega down but Omega fights his way up. Omega fights out, then CHOPS. Omega runs, but Pac clobbers him down!

Pac seethes as he looms over Omega. He gives toying kicks but gets meaner with them as AEW returns to single picture. Omega hits back, but Pac still toys with him. Omega fights back from below but Pac throws a forearm. Omega throws one back, but so does Pac. They go back and forth, faster and faster, fans on Omega’s side! Pac gets an edge, then watches Omega wobble. Pac eggs Omega on, Omega BOOTS Pac into a corner! Omega goes to the far corner and waits for Pac to stand. Pac dodges once but the Polish hammer comes back around! And again! Pac kicks first but runs into a third Polish hammer! Cover, TWO! Omega drags Pac up, fisherman BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Omega keeps his focus as he brings Pac back up. Omega wrenches, CHOPS, and then brings Pac around for another CHOP.

Omega fireman’s carries, “You Can’t Escape!” But Pac does escape to shove Omega to a corner. Omega hits back with an elbow but walks into a boot! Pac runs into a boot, but then SUPERKICKS back! Omega wobbles again, Pac runs, but Omega boots to V-TRIGGER! Omega runs, Pac follows to LARIAT! Both men are down and fans are fired up! Omega stirs as fans rally up behind him. Pac stalks him to a corner to put him on the top rope. Pac climbs up, brings Omega all the way up, SUPER FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! Omega still lives! Pac is furious, but he drags Omega into the drop zone. Pac climbs up again as fans say “This is Awesome!” Pac aims, BLACK ARROW FLOPS! Omega got clear, and now he comes back with a V-TRIGGER! Electric Chair, the fold, but Pac slips out. Omega wrenches out, crucifix pin, TWO! But Omega keeps with it and rolls Pac back down, hooking a leg! Omega wins!!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall

The Cleaner finds the key to beating The Bastard! The #1 contender has another loss on his record, and Omega surely has to be moving up! With the AEW World Championship on the line tonight, who is first to be the next challenger?

 

Dynamite Dozen Finals, Diamond Ring Match: Hangman Page VS MJF w/ Wardlow!

After a wild battle royal, it was the Problem Solver and the Salt of the Earth were the last two standing. They now fight for a 45 THOUSAND dollar ring (I think the value went up since last week), “the most expensive ring in all of professional sports.” MJF doesn’t think that ring belongs on the finger of some “white trash inbred hick from Virginia,” but it does belong on the finger of somebody who is better than us, and we know it. This diamond ring match is set to become an annual tradition, but will the inaugural ring bearer be the Casino Battle Royal winner, or Maxwell Jacob Friedman?

The bell rings, and fans chant “Cowboy Shit! Cowboy Shit!” MJF doesn’t get it, until Hangman clobbers him! Hangman throws haymakers and CHOPS, but MJF bails out fast. Hangman runs but Wardlow stands in his way. Fans boo the living wall getting involved, but Hangman goes out to get in his face. MJF tries to sucker punch Page but Page is ready to punch first! Hangman stalks MJF and clotheslines him into the crowd! Hangman then drags MJF back up to hip toss onto the ground! Hangman stomps MJF around then puts him in the ring. Hangman glares at Wardlow as AEW goes picture in picture.

Hangman takes aim at MJF, but Wardlow creeps close. Hangman swipes at him, but MJF hotshots the arm! MJF then distracts the ref so that Wardlow can hammerlock and ram Hangman into a post! Wardlow puts Hangman in before MJF is done faking a bad eye. MJF wraps the arm on a rope and pulls. The ref reprimands and counts but MJF lets up to then kick the rope. The rope jams Hangman’s arm and MJF stands like he’s already won. MJF wrenches and whips Hangman corner to corner, even wringing him out before hitting buckles! Cover, TWO! MJF is annoyed but Hangman kicks back. MJF kicks him to wrench and elbow the elbow. AEW goes to break as MJF puts Hangman back in the corner.

AEW returns as MJF soaks up the heat. MJF runs in but Hangman dodges, then CHOPS MJF! Hangman haymakers, CHOPS and whips, but MJF holds ropes to yank the bad arm. MJF runs but into both of Hangman’s arms! Fall Away Slam! Hangman kips up to clotheslines MJF out, then DIVES! Top Suicida rams MJF into barriers, but Hangman climbs up top. Fans fire up as Hangman hits the SUPER MOONSAULT! Hangman gets MJF back in the ring and fans fire up more. Hangman throws off his arm bands, takes aim, but MJF uses the ref as a shield! Hangman gets in and moves the ref aside, but he saw the kick coming! Hangman flips MJF but MJF lands on his feet! And pokes Hangman in the eye! MJF runs but Hangman DISCUS LARIATS! Cover, TWO! MJF survives and Hangman grows frustrated. MJF puts Hangman on the apron and kicks him on the return!

MJF has Hangnan stuck in the ropes but Hangman tosses him off! Slingshot, BUCKSHOT! MJF flounders away, Hangman covers, Wardlow helps MJF get the ropebreak! Fans boo but the referee can’t be sure what happened. Wardlow claims he had nothing to do it. Hangman knows it was Wardlow, though, and so he goes right at him. But with MJF exaggerating injury again, the ref doesn’t see Wardlow’s punch! Hangman is draped on the ropes, MJF reels him in, dragon sleeper and, CROSS RHODES! Cover, MJF wins!!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall; wins the Dynamite Diamond Ring

MJF adds insult to injury by stealing Cody’s move to win! Wardlow helps MJF with his scarf, and the diamond ring is brought out, by Diamond Dallas Page! DDP grabs a mic and asks Chicago if they’re ready. “It’s me, it’s me, it’s DDP.” And he presents the very first AEW Dynamite Diamond Ring to Maxwell Jacob Friedman. DDP has the box, opens it up, and MJF takes it out. Fans call MJF a very different name as he puts the ring on his pinkie and gives it a kiss.

But DDP tells Maxwell that “some of your actions are very, very disappointing.” But Maxwell is the winner. Since DDP is a bigger man, he will congratulate MFJ like a man. He offers a handshake, MJF puts his gum in DDP’s hand instead. Seriously? Seriously. DDP yanks MJF around to face him, but Wardlow steps in as MJF’s muscle. DDP tells the “big man” to step off. Wardlow would look a bit stupid when a 63-year-old man kicks his ass all over Chicago! The fight is on but referees and security hurry to stop it! MJF gets his shots in, too! Security keeps MJF and Wardlow back, and the ring winner gets away with his bodyguard. Will this Dynamite Diamond Ring lead MJF to bigger and better things?

 

Dustin Rhodes is here!

The Natural still has a cast on that arm, but he’s feeling good enough to be in Chicago! He stands with interview correspondent, Jenn Decker, and she asks about the confrontation with the Inner Circle. Dustin says Jake Hager broke his arm, but he will be coming for blood. “You are not the same man you used to be. You are not this.” That is to say, #WeThePeople. But instead of Hager coming out to respond, it’s Sammy Guevara! Dustin goes after Sammy, then has to worry about Santana and Ortiz! Spinning pwoerslam for Sammy, but Santana tackles Dustin down! The Inner Circle have 3v1 on Dustin, but here come the YOUNG BUCKS! Matt Jackson returns to double clothesline! Nick enters, and the Bucks SUPERKICK Proud ‘n’ Powerful! Sammy enziguris each Buck, then knees Dustin! Sammy runs, into SUPERKICKS and BOOT!

The Elite take the Inner Circle to the corners and make sure each man is wide open. Fans are fired up, TRIPLE SHATTERED DREAMS! Dustin and the Bucks stand tall, but just how much more intense will this faction warfare get?

 

The Dark Order has another message.

Stop losing, and start winning. #JoinDarkOrder. The man with glasses from before finds the Dark Order’s place of meeting. “Who are you?” “We are one.” Again! “We are one!” Your friends will doubt your progress. They will say no to this. Why? Because society has failed. Because your friends have failed. Because your families have failed. But the Dark Order will never fail you. You can reach a potential you never thought possible. Just like the First Pupil, Stu Grayson. He became great because he heard the teachings. The Dark Order is all powerful. The Dark Order can be anyone or anything. From a politician to a teacher to the person who cares for your family. They are everyone, everything, and one. The people become Creepers. Are you ready to play? Are you ready to #JoinDarkOrder?

 

AEW World Championship: Chris Jericho VS Scorpio Sky!

All it took was a victory in tag team action for SoCal Uncensored’s Closer to get a huge pinfall off Le Champion! With no teammates or faction members allowed ringside, can Scorpio get the fair shake he deserves? Or will Y2J still have reason to sip A Little Bit of the Bubbly tonight?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and Aubrey Edwards officiates this Thanksgiving eve main event!

The bell rings and Scorpio stares down with Jericho. They circle as fans rally up. Jericho and Scorpio covers, Jericho arm-drags and flexes. Scorpio is annoyed but he keeps his cool. Jericho and Scorpio circle again but Jericho backs off as fans chant, “Stupid Idiot!” Scorpio and Jericho tie up and Jericho headlocks. Scorpio fights out but Jericho runs him over. Jericho runs, Scorpio gets up but Jericho runs him over again. Things speed up again, and Scorpio dropkicks Jericho, then clotheslines him out! Fans rally as Scorpio slingshots. He lands on his feet when Jericho evades, and dropkicks him again! Scorpio drags Jericho up and into the ring, then slingshots in to shoulder. Then he slingshots up and over, sunset flip! Cover, TWO! Scorpio elbows Jericho down and fans fire up.

Scorpio scrapes his boots on Jericho’s face, then brings him up to whip into a corner. Jericho puts Scorpio on the apron and Scorpio hits back. Scorpio bumps Jericho on buckles, then slingshots in to headcissor. Jericho denies that, and triangle dropkicks Scorpio down! Le Champion already celebrates while we go picture in picture.

Jericho lets Scorpio stay outside a moment while he soaks up all the cheers and jeers. But then Jericho flips off the fans, getting nothing but jeers. Jericho brings Scorpio up to CHOP down! He then throws Scorpio into steel steps! Jericho goes back to the ring while the referee checks on Scorpio. Jericho has Scorpio stuck under the railing, to guillotine catapult! Scorpio sputters, and Jericho spots Scorpio’s date, Melanie Parsons. She’s obviously concerned as Jericho puts Scorpio in the ring. Jericho gets in and stomps Scorpio around while soaking up the heat. Jericho drags Scorpio up for hammering fists into his forehead, then basement dropkicks him over! Cover, TWO! Jericho keeps his cool as he brings Scorpio up. Scorpio blocks the suplex, so Jericho throws body shots. Scorpio still blocks, Jericho clubs him more, but Scorpio hits back.

AEW returns to single picture as Scorpio suplexes Jericho! Both men are down but fans rally for Scorpio. Scorpio and Jericho stand, and Jericho CHOPS Scorpio away. Jericho forearms then whips, but Scorpio reverses to a neckbreaker! Scorpio is too tired to make a cover, but fans rally up. Scorpio and Jericho stand, and Scorpio fires off. Scorpio whips, Jericho reverses, but Scorpio Thesz Presses for fast hands! Jericho gets away but Scorpio kicks, whips and dropkicks! Fans fire up for Scorpio as he fireman’s carries. Jericho sips out, shoves, but runs into an elbow. Scorpio slingshots, CUTTER! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives but Scorpio keeps his cool. Scorpio CHOPS in the corner, then throws forearms. He whips Jericho corner to corner, but Jericho reverses. Jericho runs into a boot, Scorpio hops up and leaps, but Jericho blocks the dropkick to get the legs! Jericho works to turn Scorpio over, WALLS OF JERICHO!

Scorpio endures as Jericho sits deep! Scorpio fights, crawls, reaches, ropebreak! Jericho holds on until 4 then argues with Aubrey. Fans boo but Aubrey gives Jericho the business. Jericho runs at Scorpio, misses, but gets a CUTTER! Into the Dragon Sleeper Clutch! But here comes Jake Hager! He’s not supposed to be out here! Scorpio forearms Hager off the apron, Jericho rolls Scorpio! TWO, and double LARIATS take both men down! Aubrey checks on both men but they’re okay to continue. Hager scowls but Aubrey tells him to stay back. Hager gets on the apron again, shouting at Scorpio. But Frankie Kazarian and Christopher Daniels go after him! The Addiction fights Big Hurt, but Jericho has the AEW belt! Scorpio sees it coming, catches Jericho, TKO!! Cover, TWO!?! Y2J survives the TKO and Scorpio can’t believe it!

Aubrey gets the belt back out as Chicago rallies up for Scorpio. Scorpio feels the energy building and fires off strikes! He whips Jericho, runs in, but Jericho boots. Jericho hops up, but Scorpio leaps, SUPER STEINER! Enziguri! Cover, TWO!! Jericho still lives but Scorpio keeps on him. Jericho denies the cutter this time and shoves, but Scorpio goes up and leaps, into a CODE BREAKER! Jericho has to crawl to the cover, TWO!! Scorpio survives and shocks Jericho! Jericho clubs away on Scorpio but Chicago knows “This is Awesome!” Jericho aims from the corner as Scorpio stirs. Jericho runs in, but no Judas Effect! Backslide counter, TWO!! So close again! Jericho ducks a kick, and grabs the enziguri, to drag Scorpio back into the Walls of Jericho! Jericho sits deep, and Scorpio can’t hold out! Scorpio taps, Jericho wins!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by submission; still AEW World Champion

The Lion Tamer tames Scorpio, but he feels compelled to teach Scorpio a lesson for pushing him this far. The Walls are put back on! But here comes MOXLEY!! The Death Rider enters from the bleachers, and Jericho sees him glaring menacingly. Fans are fired up and Jericho holds up the title. Jericho dares Moxley to do something, and Moxley starts making his way further down towards ringside. But the sparks don’t fly just yet. When and where will these two wild cards collide?

 


 

My Thoughts:

Another great episode! It made a lot of sense to open with the “celebrashon,” and it was just rich with that same great Jericho style comedy. And it is awesome that A Little Bit of the Bubbly is now an AEW product. Getting the Father of Jericho in on the act was great, and it was great to have SCU in disguise as members of the marching band. Daniels seems to be a master of disguise. Just about everything in the AEW World Championship match was great. I wish they’d played up Scorpio have his date ringside, but perhaps they were worried about TV time and skipped it. And while there was a ringside band on corner men, of course Hager was going to defy that. We all figured Scorpio wasn’t winning, but he still looked amazing, as we also figured. Moxley giving his open challenge yet staking his claim showing up at the end of the show seems a bit contradictory, but given how AEW plans to use rankings and wins, perhaps this is Moxley reminding Jericho that he’s still around.

Best Friends VS Lucha Brothers was a great match, Orange Cassidy was pretty hilarious as a turkey, and I’m a bit surprised to see Best Friends win. Trent beat Pentagon, Fenix beat Nick Jackson, and now those two face each other next week in what will surely be another incredible match. The women’s tag was pretty great, AEW is going strong with these match types in particular. It is actually good booking for Sakura and Priestly to find a way to sneak a win, but also not pinning Shida but Statlander. Shida might still be #1 contender but she’ll likely need another win before she faces Riho for the title. Omega VS Pac was a great rematch, and naturally, Omega makes up for the All Out loss. This might hurt Pac’s #1 ranking, but I still feel Omega needs something more before facing Jericho.

The Dark Order had a great vignette, really selling how creepy they’re really meant to be. The Dustin Rhodes segment was good for keeping his grudge with Hager going, but I’m glad we’re going to get a Six Man out of that brawl. That is going to be a great match. MJF VS Hangman was also a great match, even with Wardlow getting involved at times. MJF keeps things going with Cody by stealing the Cross Rhodes, but DDP might even be added to the mix to counter Wardlow for Cody. I’m still curious as to the purpose of the Dynamite Diamond Ring but maybe that comes up later. Cody of course gets a squash match for his return, and keeps things alive with MJF in his promo, but I feel we came across a moment where mingling stories gets messy.

Allie going Heel while bringing in Braxton “The Butcher” Sutter (her IRL husband) and tag partner Andy “The Blade” Williams during Cody’s moment was a great surprise, but to what end? If it was one new wrestler, it would’ve made sense to say they were MJF’s newest muscle. But a new trio popping out just because just seems off to me. If they’d done this to a tag team, or to a wrestler not already attached to some other story, maybe it works better. Just not sure about this here.

My Score: 9/10

Darby Allin VS The Beast Mortos!

The ESports Stadium in Texas fires up as The Relentless One is back in action! He’s getting ready for Blood & Guts this Wednesday, but will he be red hot going into Dynamite? Or will he not get past the beast standing in his way?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Darby circles with Mortos, they tie up, and Mortos powers Darby to a corner. The ref counts, Mortos lets off and the two reset.

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Both men were relentless tonight, but it’s Darby who survives their Collision! Will Darby be even more dangerous when he steps inside the double ring, double cage that is Blood & Guts?

Darby gets a mic to have his music cut. He says people tell him to slow down, or else he won’t be able to walk when he’s 30. Well, he is 30 now, and he feels wonderful! The only thing is, Darby doesn’t take the night off. Darby doesn’t forget being a dishwasher. He’d rather get kicked in the face any night of the week than go back to that. And we’re getting ready for Blood & Guts, and it’s very fitting that Darby’s finally in one. If anyone saw Sting’s final match, they saw Darby’s guts hanging out! He has a scar on his side that looks like Harry Potter’s forehead, and it stings every day. The fans cheer that!

Darby wants to talk the EVPs for a second, The Young Bucks. What sucks about them is that they never come to Collision, they never advertise the shows on the news or radio. It is Darby! AEW is Darby’s baby now! And he will stop at nothing to make sure everyone knows! Darby wouldn’t be here if not for The Bucks, that’s no secret, but man, they suck so bad now. And Jack Perry… Oh, Jack Perry. TNT Champion? No, that title means everything to Darby, and he will stop at nothing until the belt is around his waist again. So All In is around the corner… If Jack has the balls, let’s play! Darby is ready for Blood & Guts, see you Wednesday!

 

The Acclaimed speak.

Max Caster says, “Yo! Listen! The Elite, Blood & Guts next week, Team AEW is about to stomp on those tiny little nuts.” Billy Gunn tells Caster to just stop right there. That is not what the match is about. It is not about Bowens being The Scissor King, or about Caster being a rapper. It is about being the best wrestlers alive, and about being a badass! They need to bring this fight to The Elite! Time to nut up or shut up! Daddy Ass is fired up for his boys, and that fires them up! Bowens & Caster are ready to get serious, will they make The Young Bucks pay for playing games with them?

 

Skye Blue VS Hikaru Shida!

To be the best, you gotta beat one of the best, and that is why Chicago Skye called out the former THREE-TIME AEW Women’s World Champion! Will Skye use this Collision to build momentum? Or is she just going to give Shida her own rebound victory towards a title?

The bell rings and Skye BOOTS Shida down! Skye bumps Shida off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, then lets off. Skye brings Shida around to bump off buckles again, then stomps her more. Shida hits back, but Skye ROCKS her for it. Skye brings Shida around again, but Shida breaks free to ROCK Skye! Skye fires another forearm, but so does Shida! They go back and forth, faster and faster, then Shida fires off a flurry! Shida ROCKS Skye, fires up, then catches Skye to spin her. Skye ELBOWS Shida first, then runs, but into a KNEE! Shida runs but Skye SHINING WIZARDS at the ropes! Skye snapmares and runs up, but Shida blocks!

Shida spins Skye, ducks the spin kick and rolls Skye up! Skye rolls through but Shida DROPKICKS her out of the ring! The fans fire up and Shida watches Skye go around the way. Shida goes up and CROSSBODIES! Down goes Skye and the ref has Doc Sampson check. Shida gets herself a chair while she waits, and the fans fire up while Collision goes picture in picture.

Shida paces while Skye is checked out. That fall really rocked her, maybe even beat up a leg. Shida paces, then goes back into the ring to wait. Shida keeps the fans fired up, but it doesn’t look good for Skye. Shida checks with the ref, and it seems the match has been called! Shida wins by default!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by medical stoppage

A real shame for Skye, as she was the one who wanted this fight. But Shida is still moving on, will she be waiting on the champions after All In?

 

Lancer Archer is going nuts backstage!

He is beating up and throwing around prospects left and right! One guy walks in, sees what’s going on, and turns right around, only for Archer to grab him and CHUCK him into the garage door! “It seems everyone has forgotten who the Murderhark Monster is! Everyone’s forgotten just what I can do. And it’s time to remind you all!” Archer CHUCKS a trash can into another guy, #EverybodyDies! Who else will be unfortunate enough to face Archer’s wrath?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Hi, guys~! And hello, Minoru Suzuki. We’ve been waiting a long time for this match, haven’t we? For four years, I’ve been thinking of Suzuki VS Jericho. For four years, I’ve been wanting this match in the Tokyo Dome, or on Dynamite. And now, this Wednesday, the match comes true. It’s a dream match for sure. First time ever! But for you, Minoru, it’s gonna be a nightmare. Get ready for some night sweats and night terrors just thinking what I’m gonna do to you, and even worse after the match. They talk about Blood & Guts this Wednesday. This match is gonna be far more violent than that.

“They call you The Murder Grampa, one of the most violent men who ever came outta Japan. Well, Suzuki, if there’s anybody that can match you blow for blow, experience for experience, match for match, it’s me. So Suzuki, I can’t wait to teach you a few very valuable lessons. And one of them is gonna be you should’ve never turned down The Learning Tree when I asked you to be my partner, and you never should’ve come to the ring during TV Time last week on Dynamite. Suzuki, this is it, one for the ages. Like I said, first time ever, Jericho, Suzuki, Learning Tree VS the most violent man in Japanese history, I can’t wait.

“We’ll see you on, Wednesday, Suzuki, you’re not gonna like it. Thanks, guys!” The Learning Tree has been rather delusional these days, but has he reached a new level with this? Or does he have something up his sleeve to help him survive Suzuki?

 

Rey Fenix w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Tony Nese w/ The Premier Athletes!

The Immortal Firebird just won big last night on Rampage alongside Penta El Zero Miedo, but there’s no slowing down with him! However, “Smart Mark” Sterling has everyone stop so his client can say something very important. Nese takes the mic, even as fans boo, and Nese says “When they said everything is bigger in Texas, I’m gonna be honest. I thought they were talking about the cars, the houses. But the reason why they say that, now i can see, is because all of you are terribly, terribly FAT!” The fans boo but Nese says yes, it upsets him, too. But it isn’t entirely their fault. It is not. It’s because they haven’t had real athletes to look up!

Who’re they looking up to? The under-500 Texas Rangers? So, Nese’s lawyer, THE GREATEST lawyer in pro-wrestling, Sterling has made a contract to give a lucky individual an opportunity. But more importantly, it gives every single piece of trash here tonight to see what a real athlete looks like! But here comes Fenix! Will he make Nese regret flexing on Texas?

The bell rings and the fans rally for “LUCHA! LUCHA!” Fenix and Nese circle, feel things out, and they tie up. Nese wrenches, wristlocks, and grinds the arm. Fenix moves around, uses ropes to flip through, and then he wrenches to wristlock back. The fans rally as Fenix twists the wrist, but Nese fights up. Fenix HEADBUTTS the arm, but Nese fights up again. Fenix wrenches, Nese rolls, and then Nese throat chops! The fans boo and the ref reprimands, but Nese SOBATS Fenix to run and BOOT! And WHEEL KICK! Cover, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese soaks up the heat. Nese stalks Fenix but the fans chant “You Still Suck!”

Nese CLUBS Fenix with crossface forearms, taunts the fans, then he drags Fenix up. Fenix knees free, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then springboards, but the ropes give out! Cover, TWO! Nese drags Fenix by his leg, stomps away, and Fenix crawls away. Nese stalks Fenix, stomps the leg more, then brings him up. Nese CHOPS, Fenix CHOPS, repeat! The fans “WOO~!” as the CHOPS keep going! Fenix fires up and he CHOPS! Nese falls back against ropes while Fenix eggs him on! Nese kicks low, whips, but Fenix reverses and DROPKICKS! Nese bails out, Fenix gets the bad leg moving, and he builds speed, only for Sterling to save Nese!

Fenix slides out, glares at Sterling, then ROCKS Nese! Daivari steps up but that’s a distraction. Same for Josh Woods! The ref reprimands, Nese blocks the superkick to then SUPERKICK back! Fenix falls, Nese slides into the ring, and that lets the Premier Athletes mug Fenix! The fans boo but the ref misses it all as Collision goes picture in picture.

Fenix clutches his leg, drags himself up, and Daivari talks trash on the fans. Nese AX HANDLES Fenix, but then Fenix shoves Nese. Nese ROCKS Fenix, CHOPS him again, but Fenix just CHOPS back! Nese kicks the bad leg, then whips Fenix hard into railing! Fenix falls over, Nese flexes while soaking up heat, and he goes back for Fenix. Nese puts Fenix in the ring, stomps him, then paces around. Nese drags Fenix up, TOSSES him up, and the Premier Athletes mug Fenix again! Fenix tumbles away to the ramp while Abrahantes protests, but that just lets even Sterling get his shots in! Fenix storms up on Sterling and he runs away as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Nese covers, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese pushes him around. Fenix CHOPS back! Fenix eggs Nese on, Nese SLAPS, so Fenix CHOPS! Nese fires a haymaker, talks trash, but Fenix fires body shots. Nese stands Fenix up to CHOP him back down! Nese drags Fenix to a cover, ONE! Nese is annoyed but he drags Fenix up. Fenix CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS, CHOPS, CHOPS! Nese throat chops! The ref reprimands, but Nese HOTSHOT BULLDOGS! Then he slingshots to roll Fenix up, TWO! Nese deadlifts to a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and the fans fire up!

Nese and the Premier Athletes are frustrated but the fans rally behind Fenix. Nese drags Fenix up, pushes him to a corner and he fires haymakers! The fans boo but Nese sits Fenix down. The ref counts, Nese lets off, and Nese brings down the kneepads. Nese goes side to side, but Fenix somersaults to SPIKE-RANA! Cover, TWO!! Nese survives, but Fenix BOOTS him! Fenix runs in to JUMP SOBAT! Nese wobbles, Fenix brings him around to wrench, but Daivari gets on the apron! Fenix runs Daivari off, but Nese runs in! Fenix DUMPS Nese out onto Daivari! The fans fire up and Fenix builds speed to FLY! Down go ALL the Premier Athletes!

The fans are thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” while Sterling panics. Fenix rises, and he puts Nese in. The fans rally behind Fenix as he climbs. Fenix reaches the top rope, but Sterling gets on the apron! So Fenix tightrope walk PENALTY KICKS him down! But Nese rolls Fenix! SOBAT HEEL KICK! Nese goes up and up and PREMIER 450! Cover, TWO!! Nese is furious that Fenix survives but the fans are thunderous! Nese drags himself over and brings Fenix up. Nese pump handles, lifts, but Fenix slips free and SUPERKICKS! Nese leans against ropes, Fenix goes up, tightrope PENALTY KICK! Fenix goes up to FROG SPLASH! Cover, Fenix wins!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall

It was practically 4v1 but Fenix still wins out! Will this momentum help Fenix head after whatever championship he wants after All In?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He welcomes us back to the ESports Stadium, and welcomes in two men AEW loves, it’s FTR! The fans fire up as Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood make their way out, having made their return just last week to help Tommy Billington against The Don Callis Family. FTR joins Schiavone in the ring and he brings up that big return to stand up to the Don Callis Family. Thankfully they did, so he asks their thoughts. Cash says if you ask him, Dynamite Kid Tommy Billington has one of the brightest futures in wrestling today, and they weren’t gonna let the Don Callis Family walk all over him.

But Cash also wants to talk FTR. It is no secret that the past two years has been the greatest run in their careers. The fans cheer that! Schiavone says the fans agree with Cash, and Cash says he thinks so, too. But while this was something Cash didn’t wanna talk about, when FTR was told they had time to talk tonight, he figured he should get it off his chest. It is no secret that Cash has been going through personal stuff that has dragged his name through the mud, is a cloud over his head, and he has had more stress than he could ever tell us all. Every single night, when he came out here, that was his escape.

This is where Cash could forget all that other crap, even when it wasn’t true. Every week, night after night, the fans helped Cash get through that. All that out there didn’t matter to him! It only mattered that he wrestled every match like it was his last, because he didn’t know if it was gonna be his last. So it isn’t a secret that Cash is a hot head, but it won’t happen outside this ring. Now the only people FTR has their eyes set on are The Young Bucks! So maybe, just maybe, time to go Buck Hunting!

Dax tells Schiavone that 2022 and 2023 were good times for FTR fans. FOUR world tag titles, THREE incredible matches with The Briscoes, and 58 MINUTES with Bullet Club Gold in Calgary. And the cherry on top: Beating the Bucks in front of 80 THOUSAND people in Wembley Stadium. But now, this is the present, and their win-loss record isn’t so great. Back in April, Dax had a serious back injury that he thought he wasn’t gonna come back from. But what really bothered him was The Bucks leap-frogging FTR as the best tag team in the world, and that didn’t sit well with him. The fans boo, they don’t like it either.

Dax says six weeks ago, he was sent home to rehab. He watched Collision, Dynamite and Rampage, all in hopes that “our EVPs, our fearless leaders,” would take this tag division back to the top and take it to the Promised Land. Dax was so let down. In six weeks, we haven’t seen The Bucks defend their titles. The fans boo that, too. Dax says maybe, just maybe, this is a big mistake. But starting next week, here in Arlington, Texas, FTR’s road to the AEW World Tag Team Championships begins. FTR starts their road back, and it ends at Wembley Stadium at All In!

And Dax knows sometimes he is rough to deal with, a little abrasive. But if you’ll give him a little grace, a little love, he promises FTR will give you all every bit of passion, love, tears, sweat and whatever else, so that they will become the THREE-TIME AEW World Tag Team Champions! The fans chant for “F T R! F T R!” and Dax tells The Bucks, “This whole thing’s for you. Top Guys, Out!” Just as AEW starts on the homestretch to All In 2024, FTR want to hit it out of the park! Will they get their shot at Matthew & Nicholas? Or are they overlooking The Acclaimed and their own shot at the gold?

 

Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida.

Lexy Nair is with the Shining Samurai and brings up the match tonight. Shida says stop, stop, stop. She came here for a fight, is still looking for a fight, and she wants to fight! Shida wants a fight… with DOCTOR BRITT BAKER!! Welcome back, by the way. And now Britt just wants to be TBS Champion? Get in line! Or does Britt not remember that Shida made her bleed once before? Shida will do it again this Wednesday on Dynamite: Blood & Guts! There could be a lot more blood than TBS bargained for, but will Shida make sure All In’s card is subject to change?

 

Roderick Strong VS Tomohiro Ishii!

The Savior of the Backbreaker will challenge Mark Briscoe for the ROH World Championship next Friday at Death Before Dishonor, right in this same building! However, he’s up against #BigTime Ishii, someone he’s also been itching to fight. Will Roddy be more than ready for the Sussex County Chicken? Or will the Stone Pitbull take a big bite out of him first?

The bell rings and the fans rally for “I-SHI-I! I-SHI-I!” as he circles with Roddy. They tie up, go around, and Ishii puts Roddy on ropes. The ref counts, Ishii lets off slowly, but Roddy CHOPS! Ishii doesn’t even flinch! Ishii eggs Roddy on, so Roddy CHOPS! Ishii CHOPS, Roddy CHOPS, repeat! The CHOPS keep going, a lot like they did just last night on Rampage. Ishii CHOPS, eggs Roddy on, so Roddy CHOPS again! The CHOPS just speed up now! The fans fire up as they go CHOP for CHOP again and again! Roddy then KNEES low, runs, and RAMS Ishii! Ishii stays put to CHOP again!

Ishii runs, Roddy CHOPS but Ishii just keeps moving, to run Roddy over! The fans fire up as Roddy flounders to a corner! Ishii eggs Roddy on, storms up, but Roddy BOOTS him! Roddy fires forearms but Ishii leans into them! Ishii corners Roddy like that! Roddy fires more and more and more forearms, but Ishii doesn’t budge! Roddy sees he’s stuck, the fans tell him he messed up, so Roddy uses ropes as defense. Ishii doesn’t go anywhere, so Roddy tries more forearms! Ishii DECKS Roddy! Roddy staggers back up but into Ishii’s facelock. Ishii suplexes high and hard! Cover, TWO! Roddy bails out to the apron but Ishii storms over.

Ishii TOSSES Roddy into the ring, Roddy staggers back up. Roddy waistlocks, Ishii throws him off! Ishii dodges the Strong Knee, but Roddy fires more forearms! Roddy runs, RAMS Ishii, but Ishii ROCKS him again! And CHOPS him! Roddy dodges but Ishii CLOBBERS him again! The fans fire up while Roddy bails out. Roddy hobbles, Ishii watches, and Roddy rolls in. Roddy bails out, but Ishii pursues! Roddy kicks low, bumps Ishii off the apron, but Ishii returns the favor! Ishii pushes Roddy in, but Roddy comes back to WRECK Ishii with a dropkick! Ishii hits railing, Roddy brings him around for an APRON BACKBREAKER!

The fans are torn while Ishii flops to the floor, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Roddy pursues Ishii, drags him up, and pushes him into the ring. Roddy stomps Ishii around, scuffs him and digs his heels in. The ref counts, Roddy lets off, and Roddy drags Ishii up. Roddy reels Ishii in to BACKBREAKER! Ishii writhes, Roddy huffs ‘n’ puffs, and Roddy sits Ishii up. Roddy CLAWS Ishii’s face, then CLUBS him down. Roddy stomps Ishii, covers, TWO! Roddy keeps Ishii down with a double wristlock, but Ishii endures. Ishii fights up, fireman’s carries, but Roddy slips free. Roddy kicks Ishii low, stomps him to a corner, then digs his boots in. Roddy lets off to soak up heat, then he storms back up to CHOP!

Roddy ROCKS and CHOPS Ishii, then fires more hands. Roddy brings Ishii in for a suplex high and hard! Cover, TWO! Ishii stays in this, but Roddy stays on him with a chinlock stretch! Ishii endures, fights up, and he carries Roddy as a backpack! Roddy CLAWS Ishii’s face, and has a SLEEPER! Roddy brings Ishii back down into body scissors! Ishii endures as Collision returns to single picture, and the fans rally up. Ishii stands, throws elbows but Roddy knees low. Roddy ROCKS Ishii, CHOPS him, then runs. Ishii scoops to SNAP POWERSLAM! Both men are down and the fans fire up!

Roddy flounders away to ropes, drags himself up, and he goes back to Ishii. Roddy fires a forearm but Ishii fires back! Roddy gets the edge but Ishii just glares at him! Roddy fires more shots but Ishii leans into them again! Ishii corners Roddy all over again! Ishii then CHOPS, CHOPS, and ROCKS! Ishii CHOPS and ROCKS Roddy over and over, but gets in the ref’s face as he counts. Ishii whips, Roddy reverses and ROCKS Ishii back! Roddy fireman’s carries, Ishii slips free, GERMAN SUPLEX! Roddy tumbles to a corner and Ishii growls as he rises. The fans fire up and Ishii runs in to LARIAT!

Ishii brings Roddy around, puts him up top, and then climbs up. Ishii brings Roddy up to stalling SUPERPLEX! The fans are thunderous while Ishii crawls to the cover, TWO!! Roddy survives and the fans fire up! Ishii rises, he brings Roddy up and in, but Roddy fights the lift! Roddy back drops Ishii away! Ishii rises, runs in, but Roddy BOOTS him! ENZIGIRIS!

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

Battle of the Belts returns for the 11th edition, following live after Collision! What championships will be on the line as AEW continues towards All In?

 

Dustin Rhodes & The Von Erichs speak.

Kevin Von Erich says it is so great to be here in Texas with his sons and his friend. This is a great night. Kevin remembers working with Dusty, and he learned so much from him. There will never be another like him. Wrestling is changing, there are a lot of differences. Dustin knows, he’s been here a long time, so he can be a real benefit to Marshall & Ross. Dustin thanks Kevin, and says he watched Kevin for years, learned so much from his own father, and he is sure the storm has arrived. One of the greatest wrestling legacies right here in Texas! The Von Erichs, the Rhodes, together for the first time since 1978!

Dustin looks forward to this, and promises that if they listen and watch, they’ll head down a path that is already great. They’ve seen this trio in action before, so believe him when he says, Dustin’s got your back. Will Dustin & The Von Erichs make a natural fit here in AEW?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now here we are in the Dog Days of Summer 2024, it’s hot as balls outside, and lemme tell you what else is heating up, the schedule for the ROH World Champion. Got a busy week next week. Next Friday, right here in Arlington, Texas, it’s ROH Death Before Dishonor, Mark Briscoe, Roderick Strong, for the ROH World title!” Mark tells Roddy that they’ve known each other a good long time now, came up in the game together. But Mark warns Roddy, Mark’s gotten wiser since last time. He’s gotten tougher since the last time! So Roddy better be ready! That’s Friday!

But after Friday, one thing’s for certain is that two days ago it was Wednesday! And let’s talk about Wednesday! Blood & Guts! Nashville, Tennessee! Team AEW VS The Elite. Let’s explain something to The Elite: pro-wrestling runs parallel to society in so many ways. And The Elite is the perfect example of what is wrong in the world today. They’re powerful, privileged, and they think they can step on the little man, step on the grind. But Team AEW represents the grind worldwide! Bring yo’ ass, because Mark will be disappointed if they don’t bring the fight! Let’s get violent, baby! RARARARA!

 

Lumberjack match: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

La Mera Mera has been daring The Virtuosa to just bring the fight so they can settle this, and she finally got Deonna to accept this fight!

Christian promised his family they’d have championships together, and it would seem his promise came true! The lights flicker, but they stay up. Was that just a glitch? Or is there something Christian is overlooking?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision here to start the “Road to Wembley” series in the ESports Stadium. The stage and ramp look great, but this new theme song they’re using instead of Elton John is not a good song. It has like marching band drums but still tries to be rock ‘n’ roll, they need to scrap it and try again. That aside, Darby VS Mortos was a great opener, and Darby of course won to bring momentum into Blood & Guts. Good promo from Darby to officially challenge Jack Perry for the TNT Championship, you can bet that’s happening. A shame for Skye Blue getting hurt tonight, but taking a crossbody from that high up is hard to judge. Hopefully the injury isn’t too severe. But good promo from Shida after to call out Britt, that’ll be a great match for Dynamite.

Great match from Fenix and Nese, and great win for Fenix, even if that was the extent of things. Great debut for Hologram/Holo.grm, formerly Aramis in AAA. He got to show a lot of what he can do, and even then I think there’s even more in his arsenal he held back. Great match from Roddy VS Ishii but I should’ve figured Taven & Bennett would show up to help Roddy win. Mark and Kyle running out there was logical, and no Cassidy was curious. It subtly builds that new moodiness to Cassidy, given he was in his more negative, dark denim and Pixies song mood on Dynamite. But great promo from Mark to hype up Blood & Guts as well as Death Before Dishonor.

Likewise, great promo from The Acclaimed with Billy making them get serious. Angry Acclaimed could make for some interesting stuff, especially if they kept it up towards their title match. Speaking of, FTR had a great promo but them setting a goal for another match with The Bucks at All In, I guess I was right to think that was the plan all along. Battle of the Belts 11 is coming so maybe that’s where we get Bucks VS Acclaimed? If that’s the case, then it feels like a given that Bucks win to go on to All In, which is a shame for The Acclaimed. Very good promo from Jericho to call out Suzuki, though I don’t think it added anything. They’re maybe leaning a little too hard into Jericho always needing TV time no matter the show, but whatever.

Good promo from Dusty & The Von Erichs, but did they really need to wait until AEW was back in Texas to get that trio going again? Well, given who the new trios champs are, I wouldn’t mind seeing Dusty & The Von Erichs going after The Patriarchy, especially with the obvious “Christian can bring up Dusty” promo waiting to be used. The trios championship match was great stuff, and they did a really good job making us think Bang Bang Gang was gonna win. But being Heels, Christian & The Patriarchy of course won via cheating. The flickering lights were a very subtle nod to The House of Black, but I would’ve preferred just a full tease, maybe just The House applauding from the tron and saying they’ll see Christian soon. And with Kip Sabian watching backstage, I feel like maybe Kip is the third man while Buddy Murphy is away.

My Score: 8.8/10

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Arkady Aura is with Saraya & Harley Cameron, and says we haven’t seen Saraya wrestle since her first round loss in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Harley speaks up and asks how that’s supposed to be Saraya’s fault. Why point the finger of blame at her? Maybe it is this company’s fault! Because Saraya has been spending this whole time training, getting “Wembley Ready,” and being an unproblematic icon! Saraya says Harley is right, and do you know why? Because AEW is scared of Saraya. The AEW Women’s Division is scared of her! Because she is the living legend, she understands.

Last year at All In, Saraya had the world at her feet! Now, they’re just keeping her off the show. Harley says doing All In Wembley without Saraya is like doing Beverly Hills Cop without Eddie Murphy! Saraya says yeah, that’s why they’re keeping her away. But they can’t do the show without her because she IS the show. All roads lead to Wembley, baby, and it doesn’t matter who she has to step on to get there. Then just who will The Outcasts take out in order to have their moment?

 

Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Bryan Keith VS The Outrunners!

While The Learning Tree has to defend that “For The World” Championship this Wednesday on Dynamite, he and The Redwood are not shying away from competition. Will Jericho & Bill show the world they’re not afraid of big bad Minoru Suzuki? Or will Turbo Floyd & Truth Magnum be the ones to teach The Learning Tree a thing or two?

The teams sort out and Bill starts against Truth. The fans rally, Truth gets around to headlock, but Bill powers up to TOSS Truth away! Truth flounders to his corner, Turbo tags in, and Turbo steps up to Bill. Jericho isn’t even taking this match seriously, he’s checking his phone! Bill knees Turbo low, CLUBS him down, but Truth tags back in. Truth runs and leaps, but Bill catches him! Bill grins, gives a thumbs up, then SLAMS Truth down! Bill says the fans know what’s up. But then Turbo tags in and The Outrunners DOUBLE CLUB Bill! Bill just frowns…! Bill turns around, he runs up, but The Outrunners dodge to DOUBLE DROPKICK!

Bill stays up but The Outrunners fire up. They spin and handshake, while flexing! Bill frowns, Truth sees and warns Turbo. Turbo looks and Bill DECKS him! Bill DECKS Truth, too! Bill then runs to BOOT Truth out of the ring! Turbo staggers up, Jericho keeps checking his phone, but Turbo CHOPS! Bill sighs and Turbo begs for mercy. Bill puts Turbo in a corner, CHOPS him, then CHOPS again! And he fires off haymaker after haymaker! Bill laughs as he stomps a mudhole into Turbo! The ref counts but Bill keeps going! Bill lets off, laughs some more, and Jericho says look out. Truth CHOPS Bill, but then he begs for forgiveness.

Bill powers Truth to a corner with one hand! Then he runs to SPLASH Turbo! SPLASH for Truth, SPLASH for Turbo! BOOT for Truth, and then Bill choke grips Turbo. SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAM!! And then he tags Jericho! Jericho smirks and waves to the fans. “Hi, guys~!” Cover, Jericho & Bill win!

Winners: Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Bad Apple Keith kicks Truth out of the ring, then he stands tall with his guys. Keith tells the Outrunners to respect Chris Jericho, but he and Bill won’t be around to help Jericho on Wednesday. Will Jericho be able to survive Minoru Suzuki in the shadow of Blood & Guts? Or will Suzuki tear down The Learning Tree #ForTheWorld?

Wait, speaking of Suzuki, here he comes! He has his own match tonight, but he wants to look Jericho in the eye one more time before Dynamite. Will the Meanest Man in the World make an example out of The Butcher?

Minoru Suzuki VS The Butcher!

Rampage returns and The Butcher is already in the ring. The bell rings and Butcher talks some smack on Suzuki. Butcher then fires a forearm, but Suzuki comes back with a forearm of his own. Butcher RAMS Suzuki into a corner, the ref counts, but Butcher lets off at 4. Suzuki eggs Butcher on but Butcher pie faces Suzuki. Butcher dares Suzuki to bring it, so Suzuki fires off fast hands and forearms! Suzuki ROCKS Butcher in the corner, then goes corner to corner, so he can BOOT! Butcher staggers, Suzuki snapmares him, then runs to PENALTY- NO! Butcher blocks the kick! Butcher CLUBS the leg, then trips Suzuki.

Butcher’s big, but Suzuki still lifts him, holds him up, and then PILEDRIVERS!! Cover, Suzuki wins!

Winner: Minoru Suzuki, by pinfall

A gritty fight for Suzuki and Butcher, and this was in a normal match! What won’t Suzuki do to Jericho when it is FTW Rules?

 

The Conglomeration speaks.

Mark Briscoe says, “For those of you who may or may not have been living under a rock for the past couple months, you are looking at the group that has come to be known as The Conglomeration. You know about my main man with the game plan, OC, and Kyle O’Reilly. Let me introduce to you Tomohiro Ishii, henceforth to be known as Big Time! That’s right! Here in The Conglomeration, there is only two rules. First and foremost, you gotta be down to conglomerate. And secondly, you cannot in any way, shape or form, be a s*it head!” Kyle shrugs and nods, because it’s true.

Mark then says that brings us to the word of the day! The word of the day is… Discombobulation! Kyle asks the country of origin. American! Can he use it in a sentence? In the midst of Mark’s discombobulation, Roderick Strong cracked him in the jaw with a knee, and stood over him, holding up Mark’s ROH World Championship high in the air! Now that done pissed Mark off, Roddy! He’s known Roddy a long time, and Roddy knows better than that! So next week, Death Before Dishonor, Mark has something for Roddy!

But before that, tomorrow night’s Collision, #BigTime Ishii is going to take Roddy on 1v1! No Kingdom, no Conglomeration, and damn sure no Don Callis Family at ringside! Roddy VS Ishii, and we’ll show y’all how we do in The Conglomeration! Because they’re ’bout to RARARARARA!! The Chicken is all fired up, but will the Stone Pitbull be able to take a big bite out of the Savior of the Backbreaker?

 

Kris Statlander w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Sydni Winnell!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor knows The Babe with the Power wants payback on her just as badly as she wants to run Willow’s life. But while Willow went and won the CMLL Women’s World Championship, Kris has just been grumbling and plotting with Big Stoke. Will Kris make an example out of Sydni tonight? Or will the Heart of Hutchinson, Kansas be unbreakable?

The bell rings and Kris DISCUS LARIATS right away! Stoke fires up but the fans are torn as Kris hauls Sydni back up. Kris ROCKS Sydni, CHOPS her, then fires off haymakers in the corner! The ref counts, Kris stomps a mudhole in, then she digs her boots in. The ref counts, Kris gets in his face about it, then goes back to Sydni. Kris drags Sydni up to snap suplex! Sydni flounders but Stokely smiles. Kris runs corner to corner, UPPERCUTS, then goes side to side, but Sydni ELBOWS her! Sydni fires forearm snow and has Kris in a corner! The fans fire up, Sydni fires up, and she whips. Kris reverses to then scoop and pop Sydni around!

Kris tucks Sydni in for STATURDAY NIGHT FEVER!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

As Stokely says, every night is #StaturdayNight, especially when Kris wins like that. She has Stoke stand on her while she does push-ups just to show off, but will Kris be ready when Willow returns with a vengeance?

 

Holo.grm loads up.

Whoever this mysterious masked man is, he is ready, and he promises that tomorrow night on Collision, we will see him debut! Will Holo.grm prove to be more than meets the eye?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Collision is already stacked with Strong VS Ishii, Holo.grm’s debut, and the Unified World Trios Championship match, The Patriarchy VS The Bang Bang Gang, but Skye Blue’s challenge to Hikaru Shida has been answered! Will the Shining Samurai cut through the Chicago Skye to find her way back to the top of the ranks? We’ll also see Darby Allin return to action against The Beast Mortis! Will The Relentless One sharpen his edge for Blood & Guts? Plus, the Lumberjack match has been made official! Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo, with other AEW stars all around ringside, will this be where La Mera Mera and The Virtuosa finally settle the score?

 

The Lucha Brothers w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Private Party!

Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix are looking to get in on the tag title chase, but so are Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy. While The Acclaimed still have to shoot their shot at The Young Bucks, which team will be waiting for them on the other side?

The teams sort out and Fenix starts against Brother Zay. The fans rally, Zay offers a handshake, and Fenix takes it. But then Fenix ROCKS Zay!

Quen steps up to Penta, and Penta says uno momento. Penta dramatically takes off his glove, but Quen says no, let him. “SHOTS! SHOTS!” Penta says okay, listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Quen, so Quen comes back to say “SHOTS!” “CERO! MIEDO!” “SHOTS!” They go back and forth, taunt for taunt, then Penta CHOPS! Quen is stinging but he composes himself. Quen comes back, CHOPS, but that hurts his hand more than it does Penta’s body! Penta says okay, and he unbuttons Quen’s shirt, to CHOP him down! The fans fire up with Penta as he does a “SHOTS! SHOTS!” dance! So Quen returns to fire forearms!

Quen ROCKS Penta, runs, but Penta SUPERKICKS! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs but Quen BOOTS him down! Quen nods, runs up, but DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Both men stay up, Penta blocks a kick to HEEL KICK, only for Quen to ROUNDHOUSE back! Both men wobble, then they DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE! Both men fall and the fans fire back up! Quen and Penta crawl, hot tags to Zay and Fenix! Fenix ROCKS Zay, Zay ROCKS Fenix, and Fenix fires off a strike fest! Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” But Zay wrenches out to facelock back!

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

Private Party put up a fight to be sure, but Penta y Fenix just wanted it that much more! Will the Lucha Brothers be watching Blood & Guts very, very closely?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of Rampage here, and even the squash matches served some purpose. Kris crushing Sydni was mostly for momentum, but it felt like that was the first real showing of Kris’ Heel attitude with her trash talking the whole time. Jericho letting Bill do all the work against The Outrunners was naturally how that match was going, but it works perfectly in character and story for them. And Jericho crossing paths with Suzuki before Suzuki puts Butcher away rather quickly was good, too. The go home math is therefore even ahead of their FTW Championship match, but I wonder if Jericho was texting someone who could interfere for him since Keith & Bill can’t. But it can’t be Jeff Cobb, though, he’s locked in for NJPW’s G1 Climax.

Very good promo from The Outcasts, and while Toni Storm VS Mariah May is one title match and Mercedes Mone VS Britt Baker is another, Saraya could end up putting out an open challenge and it is answered by someone big from Stardom or CMLL for a first-time-ever kind of match to make All In even more historic. Great tag team main event from Lucha Brothers VS Private Party, with it mostly being for momentum. Private Party has finally been back on track now that both guys are healthy, but Lucha Bros winning out made sense. Penta & Fenix have been great as a team and as individuals, they’re both primed to take on just about any team or even singles champs if needed.

And great opener from The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom, even though I’m surprised they did such a Six Man Tag already. The Conglomeration winning could still feed into my idea that Cassidy & Kyle get an ROH Tag Team Championship match at Death Before Dishonor, but it also gives us a reason for Ishii VS Roddy tomorrow night. Great promo from Mark Briscoe in that, too, he continues to be one of the best underappreciated promo guys in all of wrestling today. I feel like Mark is going to retain the title against Roddy given how Shane Taylor is gunning for Mark, but that really depends on if Tony Khan is even paying attention to his own shows.

My Score: 8.7/10
