It’s the AEW YouTube Pre-Show!

Golden Boy greets us to Baltimore for some great backstage exclusives.

 

SoCal Uncensored arrives!

Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky have that “game day drip” heading into their first AEW World Tag Team Championship defense in a triple threat. But they’re not coming in as underdogs, they are champions! SCU still feels Baltimore is the worst town they’ve ever been to, BUT (and it’s a big but, Scorpio loves big buts and he cannot lie) fans are going to watch SCU walk in and walk out the ring champions, despite having two great contenders. But it won’t matter who is in the ring, whether it’s Pentagon, Fenix, Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, Orange Cassidy, Butch Cassidy, they will understand that while it doesn’t rain much in SoCal, SoCal shall reign forever. SCU later tonight!

 

Bea Priestley speaks.

“Unprofessional. Reckless.” Britt wants to talk? Or shoot? First it was a concussion, then a black eye, “boo hoo.” This is a full contact sport, so it isn’t Bea’s fault Britt doesn’t know how to protect herself. Britt wants to say Bea isn’t professional? “You’re a f***ing dentist!” Britt spends her extra time playing with teeth, while Bea is training in the Stardom dojo, learning from some of the best in the world today. “This is my profession. Wrestling for you, Britt, is just something you do on your days off.”

Reckless? At least Bea gets the job done. Britt just complains on Twitter. Bea doesn’t make excuses, her work proves itself. But she’ll say it now: Britt is the poster girl for any promotion, perfect for wrestling five years ago. All the excuses lead back to the fact that Britt cannot hang with Bea, and Britt is just scared to admit it. Bea is the most dangerous person Britt will ever face, and highly underestimates that. Bea is going to unleash even more in the Buy-In, and END Britt Baker. Will this grudge match go too far?

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page.

The rankings are out for AEW, Hangman is 3rd in the singles division but PAC is 2nd. Chances are, a win here leads to an AEW World Championship match. But Hangman is here for one thing: give PAC the ass-whooping he is overdue for. Hangman vows to blister Pac’s skin, break his back and “stomp his little balls ’til they pop!” Whatever happens after that doesn’t matter. It’s time for #CowboyShit.

 

Backstage interview with Joey Janela.

The Bad Boy quietly prepares for his match with Shawn Spears. It’s been rough, and “Sugar Daddy” Tully and “Sugar Baby” Shawn Spears are probably not taking this match seriously. Daddy is probably buying Baby a new purse. But Janela is here for business. For the first time in a long time, he feels a “certain type of way.” Spears is the “Chairman” but Janela knows more about chairs than him. But he won’t even need chairs, ladders, thumbtacks or barbed wire. Spears and Tully better watch this closely. All Janela need is his fists. He has been pigeonholed as a “hardcore outlaw macho goofball,” but the new fans just learning about him don’t know what he’s really capable of. And tonight, Baltimore will find out that Janela is a “bad, bad boy!” Janela heads out, but will he beat Spears down in return for the beating backstage?

 

It’s time to Buy In!

TAZ joins Excalibur and Golden Boy for commentary on this big night in Baltimore! And that starts with a match full of bad blood!

The mandible claw did its job! Britt beats Bea in Baltimore, is this going to lead Britt back to a title match?

 

Candles are extinguished.

“There are 8 million ways to die. She’s one.” Awesome Kong is here, with Brandi Rhodes! This devious duo goes down the ramp while Bea is still. Kong gets in, and a BIG back hand decks Bea! Kong takes off the glove, and produces a knife?! She hands it to Brandi before dragging Bea up. Underhooks, AWESOME butterfly facebuster! Fans cheer for “KONG! KONG! KONG!” but this isn’t done. Brandi hands the knife back to Kong then goes after Bea’s hair! Brandi takes a lock of Bea’s hair and Kong helps her cut it! A trophy of their victim is now part of Kong’s belt. Will there be more additions to the collection?

 

Pressure sets people apart.

“Those that have the ability to thrive under pressure achieve greatness.” Wins, success, championships. Those that feed off pressure continue to move forward. Tonight is all about pressure. “Greatness demands everything.” Who will crack under pressure? Who will prove that they are worthy of being All Elite?

 

The Young Bucks VS Santana & Ortiz!

Full Gear begins with determining the best tag team on the planet today! Will it be Matt and Nick Jackson continuing their legacy? Or will it be the Inner Circle’s #ProudNPowerful Boricua Badasses from the Big Apple?

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express is ringside to watch and support the Young Bucks in hopes of payback on PNP for attacking them. The teams sort out and we start with Nick Jackson and Santana.

Fans are already thunderous as Nick and Santana circle. But then both men take cheap shots on the opposing partner! Santana and Nick shove each other, then start brawling! But Matt and Ortiz each get payback with a cheap shot on Santana and Nick. To then start brawling with each other! All four men are brawling! Matt DECKS Ortiz, but Santana and Nick keep going.

Santana whips Matt into R’N’R! But that just fires up Ricky and Robbie! The referee backs Santana off to stop riling up R’N’R, despite Baltimore wanting to see it!

Shawn Spears w/ Tully Blanchard VS Joey Janela!

The Chairman, or rather chair man, and his Horseman mentor felt greatly disrespected by the Bad Boy’s soda cigarette prank. But Janela didn’t exactly appreciate the payback in the form of pliers pulling his tongue and a cigarette burning his mouth! Two men with vicious streaks longer than the New England coast are about to battle, but who walks out of Baltimore the winner?

So Janela hops up top, to CANNONBALL onto Spears! Fans fire up as Janela drags Spears up and into the ring. Janela climbs again but Spears springs up to OVERHEAD SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO!!

Spears drags Janela up and in, fireman’s carry, C4 Driver! Cover, Spears wins!!

Winner: Shawn Spears, by pinfall

Tully was three steps ahead of everyone else, and he helps Spears get a big win! Will this help Spears achieve #PERFECT10N?

 

Backstage interview with Kip Sabian.

Golden Boy has Superbad, but Kip didn’t realize. He thought GB was an intern. But why this sudden change in attitude? Ever since arriving, Kip was going straight down the middle. Kip found there were alliances all over, so Kip took it upon himself to carve his own path. That’s when he met like-minded men in The Hybrid2. The trio hasn’t worked out perfectly, but even the greatest rock bands didn’t come up with their greatest hits right away. Alliances are about people you can trust and you have chemistry with. And so now, Kip has PENELOPE FORD! The Superbad Squad is here with some sex appeal to inject into this “loser” company. Why be bad when you can be superbad. But this is boring, so “cheerio, dweeb.” Janela is going to be upset when he learns the Bad Girl has ditched him for a Superbad boy.

 

AEW World Tag Team Championship Triple Threat: SoCal Uncensored VS The Lucha Brothers VS Private Party!

The tournament to crown the inaugural AEW World Tag Team Champions was intense from start to finish! But it was incredibly personal after what Pentagon and Fenix did to Christopher Daniels before SCU even competed. But The Closer, Scorpio Sky, was able to substitute in, and it would be SCU that took the gold! However, that was only the beginning for Scorpio and Frankie Kazarian.

Fenix uses the ramp for speed, step up springboard crossbody! Cover, TWO!! Scorpio survives but Fenix is not deterred. Fenix runs corner to corner but Scorpio catches him! Scorpio sits Fenix up top, tag to Kaz, and Scorpio gives Kaz the boost for a SUPER DDT!! Cover, but Pentagon kicks it apart!

Kassidy mule kicks, then gets a boost from Quen for the Stunner! Kassidy holds Kaz for Quen’s electric slide kick! Then assisted SQUEALING Sliced Bread! Quen goes up as fans fire up!

We know what they’re planning, but so does Scorpio! Scorpio waistlocks Kassidy and Kaz manages to resist the Super Steiner! Scorpio shoves Kassidy into Quen, then waistlocks Kassidy again.

Lights Out Unsanctioned Match: Kenny Omega VS Jon Moxley!

The Best Bout Machine and the Death Rider have taken things to a rather extreme level. So much so, that Tony Khan himself felt AEW could not take responsibility for what happens between them. However, that was far from what Moxley wanted, because now it will never count on the record books. Moxley wants to break out of the box he’s been put in, but he’ll just have to settle for breaking Omega instead. How far will each man go to get past the other?

Justin Roberts explains that the lights will turn off then back on, and that there will be no rule but to win!

He doesn’t want it, so he tosses it aside. Omega goes out, starts looking, and brings out a TABLE!

Fans love tables, and Omega props it up against railing. The front row on that side moves back a little while Omega brings out the barbed-wire BROOM! The Cleaner is ready!

Omega puts the sadistic arts & crafts project into the ring, but Moxley attacks from behind. Moxley and Omega brawl with forearms, the safest things they’ve done all match.

Moxley runs but into a CHOP! Omega boots and V-TRIGGERS! But then he runs into a LARIAT! Moxley hobbles over to that mouse trap board, and positions it in the ring, to X-PLEX Omega onto them! Omega gets snapped at by no less than half of the traps! Moxley stomps Omega down then goes looking under the ring again. The referee moves the mouse trap board aside, but Moxley produces a golden chain!? These chains are likely for boat anchors or pad locks. Moxley drags that into a little pile then goes after Omega. Side walk slam on the chain! Cover, TWO! Moxley grows frustrated but he brings Omega back up and goes to turn him. Omega resists but Moxley knees him to force him around, neckbreaker onto the chain!

Moxley goes back to Omega, but Omega uses the chains as brass knuckles! Omega throws body shots but Moxley haymakers back. Moxley takes aim but Omega dodges, the pick STABS buckle! The pick is stuck, Omega half nelsons, full nelsons, but Moxley powers out, to back suplex Omega on the chains! Moxley gets up and slashes the throat, promising to end this. Moxley grabs the chain again, and wraps it around Omega’s neck! Moxley whips Omega but Omega blocks and breaks free, SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Omega frees himself of the chain, to SNAP DRAGON Moxley again! Fans rally up as Omega full nelsons again. Moxley senses where they are, breaks free and BITES Omega’s face! Moxley runs, but into another SNAP DRAGON! Omega has the chain again, and he wraps it around Moxley’s neck now! Omega locks it on like a leash, to whip and HANG Moxley!

Moxley chokes, holding onto ropes for dear life!! Moxley is fading fast, but Omega can’t hold any longer. Moxley is spared, and he slumps to the floor. Omega lines up a shot and the Terminator drums begin. Omega rises, builds speed, and FLIES! Omega wipes Moxley and himself out through the table! Omega rises and Baltimore loves “Both These Guys!” Omega puts Moxley back in and then goes looking for something new. Omega realizes where it is, and brings out… a sack…? Hardcore fans know what these usually hold inside. Omega opens the sack, and reveals BROKEN GLASS! In reference to the glass table Moxley put him through!? Omega brings the glass over and goes after Moxley’s forehead! Moxley fights back but Omega just goes after Moxley’s hand! Omega cuts between fingers!! Now Omega is the “Sick F*ck!”

Omega stops the bag of glass to breaks the pieces even more. Then he pours the glass out onto the ring mat! But Omega turns around for Moxley to kick and whip! Omega reverses, SIT-OUT SPINEBUSTER ONTO GLASS! Omega makes sure his hands aren’t cut up as he covers, TWO!! Moxley survives, and now the referee’s counting hand is a casualty of this match! Omega grabs Moxley’s legs, to simply drag Moxley through the glass! Then Omega steps through, for a Sharpshooter! Moxley endures, and has no choice but to crawl over the glass to get towards ropes! Moxley gets the ropes, but there’s no ropebreak, he just uses the ropes to get up. Omega lets go, unable to hold the hold any longer. But then Omega collects pieces of glass in his hand? “This is Awesome!” but clearly Omega is plotting something.

Omega has a handful of his shiny little friends, and grins as he brings them to Moxley. Omega wants to force feed the glass to Moxley!? Some pieces get in, then Omega says “BANG!” and runs, but Moxley side steps! Rebound German Suplex ONTO THE GLASS! Omega stands up just from the pain, and V-TRIGGERS back! The glass in the mouth goes flying but Omega keeps going, V-TRIGGER AGAIN! Moxley flops out of the ring but Omega keeps his eyes on him. Omega takes the ice pick from the buckle pad! He stalks Moxley and fans bring the Terminator drum back. Omega grins as he comes up behind Moxley but the referee says this is “not worth it!” Omega grabs Moxley, and uses the pick to SCRAPE Moxley’s forehead!!

Omega calls for the Elite to bring something out for him?! The Young Bucks and Hangman Page don’t want this to go that far. But Omega promises, just the once. The Elite still follow Omega, so they do as he asks. Omega’s special plan: a BED OF BARBED WIRE!! Omega pokes Moxley with the pick for good measure and then tosses it aside. Omega brings Moxley up in the Electric Chair and goes to the edge. Omega folds Moxley but Moxley slips out to fireman’s carry! Omega fights free of that, but the V-Trigger is blocked! Moxley kicks, has Omega, SUPLEX ONTO THE BARBED WIRE!!! Baltimore loses its minds over this most heinous thing yet! How do they get the two out of the spider’s web of steel barbs? The crew does its best to reach in while not hurting themselves, and they drag the two men out. No one knows what to make of this, but the fans are still chanting for “A E DUB! A E DUB!”

Omega is free then Moxley follows. Fans cheer that the two men are not seriously injured, but then Moxley JABS security out of the way! Moxley storms over to Omega, and brings Omega over to Full Gear stage piece. Omega resists the suplex, elbows Moxley off him, then uses a vent tube to SMASH Moxley! Omega staggers back for space, runs back in, and then V-TRIGGERS Moxley and himself through the stage piece!! Both men are wrecked all over again and the referee has no idea what to do with this! Can you throw an unsanctioned match out? It already doesn’t count! Moxley emerges with a Young Buck buck on his head. Fans hope they “Fight Forever!” but something’s got to give. Moxley staggers up while Omega is still stuck in the stage piece. Omega drags himself out, that wild look on his face still there. Omega pursues Moxley and throws big forearms.

The Terminator drum is almost too appropriate for Omega at this point as he stalks Moxley back to ringside. Omega clubs Moxley more, puts him in the ring, and brings up a piece of table wreckage. But the moment Omega gets in, Moxley gets him with PARADIGM SHIFT onto the glass!! Cover, TWO!?! How?!? Moxley clears the ring of the trap board and then goes back out. Moxley tears the apron skirt off, to then undo the ring mat’s straps! Moxley undoes an entire corner, and then a bit more. The referee wants this to end, but Moxley exposes the ring’s padding, and then drags that up to expose the wood baseboards! Moxley has exposed half the ring, diagonally! Moxley drags Omega up, Gotch lift, but Omega back drops Moxley! The wood is unforgiving, which is why there is usually padding.

Omega V-TRIGGERS Moxley into the buckles! Then Electric Chair, to the fold, but Moxley slips out again! Moxley double hooks but Omega kicks back, to give Moxley the PARADIGM SHIFT ON WOOD!! Cover, TWO!?! Just what are these two men made of!? Omega sits up and points to the sky. Omega positions Moxley just right before climbing up top. He’s hesitant, but he still PHOENIX SPLASHES, TO FLOP ON THE WOOD!! Fans are in shock as Omega more than likely breaks his nose! Moxley drags Omega over to cover, TWO!?! Moxley wants to end this. Moxley underhooks and lifts, DEATH RIDER!! Cover, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

Unsanctioned turned from unrestricted to unbelievable! And in the end, the Baddest SOB in the Business came out on top! The Young Bucks come to Omega’s side while Moxley asks the camera what his ranking is now. Fourth? Fifth? How does that work? “F*** you, that’s how that works.” Moxley doesn’t care what counts on record, he knows everyone saw what he just did. Will he do even worse until he gets the respect and opportunities he deserves?

 


 

My Thoughts:

Holy crap. How is it that a PPV that keeps title status quo is so amazing? Because AEW knew how to make the matches and the stories behind them so good, we wouldn’t be upset. We have no right to be upset, there is nothing to be upset about! We got great promo packages all throughout, from YouTube Kickoff Show to The Buy In to the main show (most of which I skipped), so those were nice little things. The non-title grudge matches were great, too. Baker VS Priestley was a great match for being the only match on the Buy In, and honestly I don’t think we needed much else, anyway. The main show opening with Bucks VS PNP was a great choice! Those teams were able to do the serious and the comedic in the same match, and Nick selling a busted ankle was great, too. It was a great surprise that PNP won, but AEW has been smart about not overloading us on The Elite winning things. I also really liked getting Rock ‘n’ Roll Express involved for some small payback. This is all going to heat up Elite VS Inner Circle more and for the better.

Hangman Page VS PAC, Spears VS Janela, they were both solid matches, the stories went well, and AEW is doing great on keeping to the win-loss record mattering. Hangman will surely move up in the AEW rankings and might become the new #1 contender by default. Meanwhile, the most interesting development for Janela is that his former female valet has now left him for another talent! But I do appreciate that we’re in the process of seeing AEW’s first fully formed faction, with Kip as the singles guy, TH2 as the tag team and now Penelope Ford is in the women’s division. I look forward to seeing where this Superbad Squad goes. At the same time, I’m moderately intrigued by Brandi and Awesome Kong targeting women and taking locks of their hair… One of them is going for the title one day, but this story building them up might be something unique.

I loved all the title matches tonight, and I can’t be too upset over status quo being kept. All the reigns have still been short just on AEW being a young company, so it is totally fine for all the champions to retain. I knew almost right away that having a Triple Threat Tag match and putting Private Party in was so Private Party takes the pin. SCU retains because of that, but it was a great surprise to see Daniels return, first pretending to be Pentagon’s double. I’m thinking Daniels VS Pentagon happens as a grudge match, but I don’t know if Lucha Brothers get what would be a third chance at the tag titles. Well, unless Daniels subs in a la Freebird Rules. Riho VS Sakura was great, though they recycled quite a bit from their tag match this past Dynamite. However, they did great in adding on. Riho wins with another pin finish and not a finisher, I’m not even sure if she has a finisher. But with the way things are being set up, I wonder if Riho has a rematch with Shida to see if she can beat Shida again. No other women’s wrestler in AEW has been built up strong enough yet, it just seems the way they’re going.

The AEW World Championship match was probably the more surprising title retention, in how they did it. I don’t want to say it was obvious MJF would turn on Cody here, but it was highly likely and then that’s exactly what we got. Well for one, the judges weren’t needed, but it was still great seeing Jericho get in Malenko’s face. This is probably to set a precedent for all world title matches, just so it would set AEW apart from all other promotions. And who knows, maybe one day, the judges will be needed for some added drama. Cody and Jericho did great, I was really shocked by that ramp spot that cut Cody’s face and bruised his ribs. It made for great story, of course, as did MJF throwing in the towel. MJF can surely give a great reason as to why he turned with a promo for Dynamite or even on social media, and a grudge match between him and Cody will be great. And if Hangman is the new contender, a rematch of him and Jericho will make for some great story, too.

That Unsanctioned match, tho. Looking back, Moxley and Omega each having an Unsanctioned match in AEW before this should’ve told us things were going to get wild. The things Moxley and Omega each did with Janela, those all paled in comparison to what Moxley and Omega just did here against each other. We all expected the bat and the broom, trash cans and tables, and even going around ringside. But I don’t know who would’ve guessed a bunch of mouse traps on particle board, a screwdriver/ice pick a la the last time Triple H and Ric Flair had a No Disqualification match, the gold bike chain or the broken glass. For that matter, no one would’ve ever imagined that California King of barbed wire! These guys went to such insane levels, so I could understand more squeamish fans not feeling this, but I’m apparently not squeamish so hey.

Much like Bucks putting PNP over, Omega puts Moxley over because Moxley deserves to win, and I would love if Moxley demands to be included in the contender talk. Hangman VS Moxley, winner goes after Jericho. BOOK IT, KHAN!

My Score: 9.5/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Hangman Page is here!

The Cowboy is in Huntsville, Alabama, and using a crutch? It was concerning at the end of last week’s Dynamite that Hangman was clutching his ankle near the end of the Six Man Tag match. Hangman hops up the steel steps to step into the ring, and he gets the mic. “This probably doesn’t look like a promising start to the speech, huh, guys? I feel like I might say it too much but it’s important to me, so I will say it. When AEW started, it was a new endeavor for my friends, but for me, it was something different. It was a goal. It was an opportunity to rise to people’s expectations, to make the most of the world laid in front of me.

“And I’d like to think that I did that, and I’d like to think that winning the world championship in 2021…” The fans start to cheer, and Hangman says he likes to think that doing that was the biggest accomplishment of his career. That’s why it hurts so much to have that opportunity in front of him again, and have this happen. Fans don’t want it to be true but Hangman says, “When AEW decided that at Revolution, the world championship would be decided in a Three Way match, I said it was BS. And I meant it. And I suggested that maybe the championship should be decided in a singles match, but it looks like I had the wrong two competitors.”

Fans boo, hoping this isn’t true, but Hangman says he won’t apologize to Swerve or Joe. But he will tell us the truth, because he’s always honest with us, that this Sunday at Revolution, Hangman will not be able to compete. The fans are upset, but then “Whose house?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Prince Nana leads the way and does his dance as Swerve Strickland makes his entrance. The Realest goes down the ramp, to the ring, and already has a mic of his own. Fans cheer and chant, then Swerve says, “These last six months, man, we’ve been to war. I tried to kill you, you tried to kill me, I might’ve crossed the line a couple times…

“But I didn’t really expect this to happen. I targeted you because of everything you accomplished here in AEW. And to say that I didn’t have the utmost respect of that would just be a flat out lie. But you suffered this unfortunate fate, and the funny thing about fate, you can’t escape it. And you can’t stop destiny. And my destiny awaits me this Sunday at Revolution as I go on to become the AEW World Champion.” But then here comes said champion, Samoa Joe! The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” as he stands on stage in a suit, mic in hand and belt on his shoulder. “Destiny? You boys are out here talking about destiny?

“Now what do we have here? It seems two of the most bitter enemies ever out here are trying to hug it out, huh?” Joe says a lot of lies are being told so he will correct them with a few truths. First, week after week, these two have stared daggers at each other, thinking that the destiny of this championship was tearing the other man’s throat out. That was only because they both avoided making eye contact with Joe and realized who the real man around here is. Second, though Joe doesn’t quite understand this dynamic, whether or not Hangman is in the match. Or should we call him “Hop Along?”

Joe keeps hearing about how Hangman and Swerve are young, hungry contenders. But that’s ridiculous! They’re both battle tested, battle hardened warriors in that ring, and there’s nothing new about them. They’re hungry but accomplished. The fans cheer that. But what they both need to realize is that the only reason they’re hungry is because Joe is starving their asses! As long as Joe has the title, there won’t be no more meals come dinner time! So he will explain to them who Joe is, and who they should really be worried about! He is Samoa Joe, the AEW World Champion, and whether it is one or both of them, Joe will whoop both their asses.

Swerve tells Joe to hold on so he can explain just who the hell Swerve is! “I’m someone that went from unemployed to headlining PPVs! I’m someone that went from being a Cruiserweight to going after the world championship! But make no mistake about it, I am that same man that broke into a wrestling school and left an 18 year old laying in a bloody heap! I am that same man that trespassed in another man’s home and threatened his infant son! I’ll do whatever it takes to become world champion! I’m not only a career maker, I am a career changer! And after I take that championship from you, Joe, you’re not gonna what to do with yourself.

“Hell, you might wanna go back to commentary wearing a poncho again. Who knows.” Joe seethes as Swerve says he is on the verge of making history! And this Sunday at Revolution, Swerve WILL become AEW World Champion! Whose House? “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Whose House?! “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” WHOSE HOUSE?! HANGMAN ATTACKS WITH THE CRUTCH!! He was faking all along!? Hangman shouts for Swerve to get up and Joe grins! Hangman CLOBBERS Swerve with the crutch now! Hangman says Swerve will NEVER have that championship! Hangman tells Joe the same, that Swerve won’t take the title, HANGMAN will!

Fans are torn but Joe understands now that it is still a Triple Threat. But did Hangman just switch it up and use that crutch to take Swerve out of the running? Or will Hangman regret swerving a man as dangerous as Swerve?

 

The Young Bucks arrive backstage.

Matthew Jackson is in a black suit, Nicholas is in pink. They’re ready to “clock in” for Dynamite, and they step inside the building. Renee Paquette is right there and she welcomes them to Huntsville. Tonight is Sting’s final Dynamite ahead of their match for the AEW World Tag Team Championships at Revolution. Last time she saw them, it seemed they were having an interesting business meeting with Ric Flair. Can they give any details about that? Well, it went great, and that is all Nick will say. Matt brings up Sting and asks if Renee has seen him yet. Not yet, just them.

Oh, okay, then since this is Sting’s final Dynamite appearance, The Bucks are just dying to see him and thank him for all his contributions to this company. And mostly, they want to… “conduct his exit interview.” Matt & Nick bring out the white baseball bats, the same ones they used to beat down Sting, Darby and Sting’s two sons just a few weeks ago. Matt says have a great night, let’s have a killer show. Cameraman, keep with them, so everyone can see what the Bucks are gonna do for Sting. The Bucks continue deeper backstage, will they make it so Sting doesn’t even make it to his retirement match?

 

Six Man Tag: Eddie Kingston & FTR VS Blackpool Combat Club!

Before all of their separate showdowns on Sunday, The Mad King teams with the Top Guys to take on Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley & Claudio Castagnoli. Things have always been personal between Eddie and the American Dragon, and things have been getting more intense between Dax & Cash against the Maniac and the Swiss Superman. Just how wild will it get here, only days away from Revolution?

The trios sort out and Bryan starts against Eddie as a preview of their Continental Crown Championship match. The two feel things out as the fans rally up, and the two test the waters. The fans rally behind Eddie but Bryan is simply amused. Then Bryan tags out to Claudio! Well Eddie doesn’t like him much, either! Claudio RAMS Eddie, Eddie stays up and dares him to try again. Claudio runs, they RAM shoulders again, so now Eddie runs. Eddie RAMS Claudio, Claudio rebounds to RAM Eddie! Eddie rebounds but into an UPPERCUT! Eddie goes to a corner, Claudio runs in, but Eddie BOOTS him away!

Bryan THROWS Cash into railing, Claudio runs up to UPPERCUT him! Dax runs them off, the ref again tries to restore order, but Dax and Eddie guard Cash from the BCC, even Moxley. The BCC leaves them behind and Bryan starts a “HE’S A BUM!” chant. Cash gets in the ring but Moxley’s right on him with HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Cover, TWO! Moxley drags Cash up, tags Claudio, and they mug Cash.

Claudio stomps away on Cash in the corner, soaks up the heat, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Tag to Bryan, he drags Cash to turn him over and hook up the legs. Cash reaches out but Bryan grabs the arms. Bryan tags Moxley before he hoists Cash up, up and away, but not into the Romero Special! He has Cash up in a partial surfboard, for Moxley to JAB! Cash flops over, Moxley covers, TWO! The fans rally but Moxley drags Cash around. Moxley steps through, Cash fights but Moxley still has the INDIAN DEATHLOCK!

Eddie says fine, and the former friends brawl it out! The fans love the haymakers, but Moxley KICKS and BOOTS Eddie to a corner! Moxley runs, but Eddie LARIATS! Bryan hits the DROPKICK in the corner, then feeds to Claudio’s trio! Time for the SWING! The fans fire up as Eddie goes around and around, into Bryan’s DROPKICK! Then Claudio CATAPULTS Eddie into Moxley’s KNEE! Moxley hoists Eddie up, PILEDRIVER!! Bryan covers, Dax breaks it!!

The fans fire up but the BCC get Dax! Cash saves Dax from the Double Suplex, “This is Awesome!” as Cash DROPKICKS Claudio and Dax clotheslines Moxley up and out! FTR then DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE Claudio up and out! Cash dodges Bryan, and feeds him to the URAKEN! Dax goes up, Cash Electric Chair Lifts Bryan, STEINER BULLDOG!!

The fans rally, the ref wants this to sort out, but the CHOPS keep flying!

Moxley has Dax down for HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Claudio and Bryan also get Cash and Eddie in SLEEPERS, then drag them down for some HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS of their own! Moxley shifts to SLEEPER Dax, and then Claudio puts Cash in a REAR NAKED CHOKE! Bryan follows suit, it’s TRIPLE SLEEPERS!! The fans boo while the ref checks Eddie.

CHOP and forearms on repeat! Bryan climbs up to rain down fists! Fans count along, Moxley and Claudio join in, they get about TEN on all three! Then Moxley & Bryan whip FTR at each other, only for FTR to dosido! Cash DECKS Moxley and Dax DECKS Bryan! Claudio runs up, into SHATTER MACHINE!! Claudio flops out of the ring, Moxley gets Cash with PARADIGM SHIFT! Dax hits Moxley with a BRAINBUSTER!

Bryan BUSAIKU KNEES Dax! Eddie URA- No, Bryan ducks it to SHOULDER CAPTURE PLEX! The fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” with Bryan and he runs up, BUSAIKU KNEE!! But Bryan says he’s gonna kick Eddie’s head in! Bryan grabs the arms, for the DRAGON STOMPS! Then Bryan shifts into the TRIANGLE HOLD! No hands a la Zack Sabre Jr, but Eddie is OUT all the same! BCC wins!

Winners: Blackpool Combat Club, by submission

Bryan doesn’t let go until he’s done talking trash on Eddie. Bryan lets off to pose, but will he be posing with three championships after Revolution? Will Moxley & Claudio prove they are the top guys in the AEW Tag Division?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

Renee Paquette is with The Ocho, or rather the Lionheart, as tonight, Jericho will face Atlantis Jr. of CMLL. There is a ton of history here between Jericho and the Atlantis lucha family, what is he expecting tonight? Jericho says 30 years ago, when he first started wrestling in Mexico, he got thrown into the deep end very quickly. Legendary booker, Paco Alonso wanted Jericho to become a big time player fast. So he put Jericho with legends like Negro Casas, Silver King, Texano, El Dandy, and Atlantis Sr. Atlantis was both a great opponent and a great partner, a mentor and a friend.

So when AEW started working with CMLL, Jericho requested this match with Atlantis Jr. so he could repay the favor. Jericho wants to teach Atlantis Jr. something about the wrestling business from this end. So tonight, Jericho will show Atlantis Jr. some things he’s never seen before, and have a lesson in violence! Tonight, Jericho shows what “Corazon de Leon” can do. And in Spanish, Jericho tells Atlantis Jr. that tonight, there won’t be any holding back. Will El Ocho prove he is numero uno?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

AEW returns from break and Schiavone says tonight, it is official. There are great wrestlers all around the world, and many are coming here to AEW. But none is bigger, better or more exciting. Here on Dynamite, welcome to AEW full time, Will Ospreay! The fans fire up as the Aerial Assassin, having moved on from NJPW, is truly All Elite! Ospreay goes to the ring, high-fiving fans, and he even hugs Schiavone. Schiavone says the dynamic Ospreay is All Elite, and it’s great to have him here! Ospreay says, “Oi oi, Huntsville, how’re you doing, you cheeky shanks?” The fans cheer and Ospreay says he just wanted to come out here to say thanks for the reception.

Ospreay reminds us that back in November, he asked them to give him some time to finish his obligations with NJPW. His obligations are done! So he took himself to Barbados for a little holiday, got pissed with the Misses, it was great! And then he flew over here, lost his bags, but it’s alright! They found ’em so it’s all good. He came here in his track suit, like Kermit the Frog on leg day, and most importantly, he is here in front of all the fans to say he is here for full-time work! He’s All Elite, bruv! The fans fire up for that one! Ospreay says hold on, some are forgetting that this isn’t his first rodeo. His first PPV, he beat Orange Cassidy.

And if that wasn’t good enough, he went to Canada to beat Kenny Omega in front of 13 THOUSAND of his own people. And if that still wasn’t good enough, he pinned the first-ever AEW World Champion, Chris Jericho, at Wembley Stadium, bruv! So make no mistake about it. The territory might be different, but he’s used to this. He’s been rolling with the Callis Family, everything’s going smoothly, he is ready to pick up where he left off. Speaking of, here comes Don Callis and his family, the Last Supper mural still including Will Ospreay & Kyle Fletcher while Konosuke Takeshita & Will Hobbs are here in person.

Callis shakes hands and hugs it out with Ospreay, as does Hobbs. Konosuke doesn’t, though, given the match that’s coming. Callis takes the mic from Schiavone to say, “Y’know, ladies and gentlemen, there’s nothing I like more than a Don Callis Family reunion!” Fans boo but Callis says when he thinks about the talent in this group, he thinks about Fletcher, Hobbs, Konosuke & Ospreay, an embarrassment of riches! And Callis loves Ospreay talking about all those things the two of them accomplished together. When Ospreay beat Kenny, Callis was right beside him. Ospreay asked how they were gonna top that, and then we got Ospreay VS Jericho!

And on the biggest night of Ospreay’s life, he beat Jericho! So how to top that? Well, by having a match of the year! The fans chant “You Suck!” at Callis but Callis says you top Ospreay VS Jericho by having a match of the DECADE! And in order to do that, you need the two best rope-to-rope wrestlers in the world! The Alpha, Konosuke Takeshita, and Will BAH GAWD Ospreay! And people ask Callis, how can you pit the family against each other? Well, it’d be like when Michal Jordan and Scotty Pippen would go hard against each other in practice, then come together to win championships!

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter which one wins at Revolution! The real winner after will be the Don Callis Family! Now, shake hands, guys, this will be historic! Konosuke and Ospreay stare down, and Ospreay offers first. Konosuke looks at Ospreay’s hand, then takes it. They shake, the fans boo, but Konosuke doesn’t let Ospreay go. Konosuke wants Ospreay to look him in the eye, then he pats Ospreay on the shoulder. But then Ospreay doesn’t let go! Ospreay won’t let Konosuke big brother him just because Ospreay just got back. The fans rally behind Ospreay, Callis joins in by trying, and failing, to make it a dueling chant.

Ospreay and Konosuke step back, and Ospreay smiles as he bows respect to Konosuke. Will the Don Callis Family really be okay after The Alpha and the Assassin fight it out?

 

Backstage interview with Eddie Kingston.

Renee is now with the Mad King, and notes the disrespect shown not only to him but this entire time leading up to the match with Bryan at Revolution, how concerned is Eddie to be facing this version of Bryan? Eddie starts but then The Bucks walk in asking if Eddie’s seen Sting. What? No, he hasn’t. The Bucks then realize they’re interrupting an interview. Sorry, take it from the top. No, this is life. Oh, oops, never mind. But then Nick says he has a bone to pick with Eddie anyway. All that crap Eddie was saying on Collision, next time it’ll be a fine! Matt has Nick cool down and apologizes for him.

But while Matt has Eddie, mind if he talks with him for a second? Eddie asks what these two are even doing, but Matt says hold on. Eddie is a champion, y’know. He should work on his presentation a little. He shows up to work with Timbs and sweats? Where’s his sports coat or something? Matt asks Nick if they need to implement a dress code backstage. But no, sorry, they’re still looking for Sting, so carry on. The Bucks go shouting for “Stinger” again, and Renee says she had a point about the Louis Vuitton Timbs. Seriously? Eddie doesn’t get what is going on with the EVPs, but will he be more than ready for Sunday?

Backstage interview with The Bang Bang Scissor Gang.

Renee is with Jay White, The Gunns, Max Caster & Anthony Bowens, and she notes the impressive win on Collision against Iron Savages. It seems they’re gelling as a group now. Oh, she saw that? White agrees, they are gelling. And to be honest, he was a little apprehensive at first, had their wires crossed a couple weeks ago on Dynamite. But after Collision, they’ve shown just how well they can work together, and White is all in on BBSG! They are damn near perfect! Aren’t they, Billy? Yeah, almost. But Max, what happened to your rap? You think anyone noticed? Uh, yeah, man, everyone noticed.

But Austin says he has an idea. Speaking of combos within the group, how about this? Austin Gunn & The Acclaimed for Collision! Bowens says that’s silly. But what about The Acclaimed & Austin? YES! Everyone loves it! Austin is confused, though, isn’t that just the same but said different? White moves on by saying EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed, BANG BANG! Bowens says he got it! They scissor finger, but will Austin, Max & Anthony make it a win just like the other half of the super group?

 

Kris Statlander w/ Stokely Hathaway w/ Willow Nightingale VS Skye Blue w/ Julia Hart!

The Galaxy’s Greatest and the Babe with the Power used to be friends with the Chicago Skye, but we all know how the Princess of the Black Throne influenced her to the dark side. Skye wants to tear down her former friends to protect the House, but will nothing stop Kris from getting back to the TBS Championship?

The bell rings and Skye runs up to fire off on Kris! Kris hits back, puts Skye in a corner, and then TOSSES her across the way! The fans fire up while Skye flounders. Kris stands Skye up to fire clotheslines in the corner, then she CHOPS! The fans “WOO~!” while Kris brings Skye around to bump off buckles. Kris ROCKS, CHOPS and snapmares Skye to then run her over!

Skye bumps Kris off buckles, then CHOPS her again! Skye digs her boot in again, but the ref counts. Skye blows a kiss before letting off at 4.

Skye whips Kris to a corner but Kris goes up to FLYING BACK ELBOW! Both women are down and the fans fire up! Kris and Skye rise while a count begins.

Then she goes side to side to KNEE Skye, and reels her in for a SNAP POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!

Skye survives and Kris grows frustrated, but Stokely & Willow coach her up. Kris aims, spins, but Skye ducks the discus to kick low! TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!

Kris drags Skye back up and fisherman’s, FISHERMAN DRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and now Kris is stunned! Stoke says use a chain! Kris says no, as does Willow. Skye runs up but into a BOOT! The ref reprimands Stoke, but then Skye runs up!

Kris dodges to ROUNDHOUSE Skye, but then Julia gets in! BELT SHOT!! The ref misses it because he’s arguing with Stokely! CODE BLUE!! SKYE WINS!!

Winner: Skye Blue, by pinfall

Willow is disappointed, but in Stokely, not Kris. Stokely wanted to go hardcore but this wasn’t the time, and now Kris suffers the loss. If The House Always Wins, will anyone ever get that title off Julia?

 

The Young Bucks are continuing their hunt of Sting.

Nicholas has the cameraman follow them to the door with Sting’s name on it. But Matthew wants Nicholas to hold on. Did Nick see the interview last week? Sting seemed a little… out of his mind with anger. So if there’s one thing for sure about Sting, it’s that nothing’s for sure. So just be mindful. Nick’s prepared! Let’s go! They step in, and the room is just a bunch of black baseball bats dangling from the ceiling. Oh, they’re playing mind games, huh? Nick smacks his bat off the chair, but where, oh where, could the Stinger Man be?

 

Chris Jericho VS Atlantis Jr. w/ Atlantis Sr!

The Ocho promised it’d be the Lionheart tonight, and he is ready to give us a blast from the past as he faces the future of CMLL. Will Jericho return the favor from Atlantis Sr. and teach Atlantis Jr. a thing or two about a thing or two? Or will the World Historic Light Heavyweight Champion show he already knows what it takes to succeed?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally up, Atlantis offers a handshake, but Jericho SLAPS him! Jericho already said earlier there would be no going easy just because they’re friendly. So Atlantis SLAPS back! They throw hands faster and faster and then Jericho knees low! Jericho CHOPS and CHOPS then whips, but Atlantis reverses. Atlantis hurdles, drops down, then DROPKICKS Jericho down! Fans fire up as Jericho ends up in a corner, and Atlantis runs in. Jericho puts Atlantis on the apron, but Atlantis blocks the punch to GAMANGIRI! Jericho staggers away, Atlantis CROSSBODIES!

Atlantis kicks Jericho, fires forearms, then whips Jericho to a corner. Atlantis runs in, jumps up, gets cheers from the fans, and MONKEY FLIPS Jericho away! Jericho goes to another corner, Atlantis runs in and MONKEY FLIPS again! The fans cheer, Atlantis runs up again, but Jericho stops the third! And he has the legs, WALLS OF JERICHO! Atlantis endures, and he has the ROPEBREAK! Jericho lets go quickly, then he CLUBS away on Atlantis. Jericho pulls at the mask!? There’s no holding back and then there’s just being disrespectful! The ref reprimands, Jericho stops and Atlantis throws hands!

Atlantis kicks Jericho away, the ref helps with the strings, and then Atlantis Senior CHOKES Jericho with the towel! The fans cheer as Atlantis teaches Jericho another lesson even now! Jericho bails out to argue with Atlantis Sr, but then Junior DIVES onto him! The fans fire up as Atlantis Jr. gets Jericho up and around to SMACK him off the apron! Atlantis gets the legs, to CATAPULT Jericho into the POST! The fans fire up as Atlantis rises, and he brings steel steps around! The ref reprimands but Atlantis brings Jericho around. Atlantis reels Jericho in, gets him up, but Jericho fights it! So Senior helps out, and Atlantis has Jericho up!

But Jericho RANAS and sends Atlantis into the steps! The fans are torn while Senior checks on Junior, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Jericho storms over, he drags Atlantis around to SMACK him off the steps! Jericho puts Atlantis in the ring, kicks him around, then soaks up the cheers and jeers. Jericho drags Atlantis up again, CHOPS him, and has him in the corner. Jericho CHOPS again, and CHOPS again! Jericho whips corner to corner, runs in and clotheslines! Jericho puts Atlantis up top, throws hands, then climbs up after him. Jericho brings Atlantis up to the very top, but Atlantis resists! Atlantis SUPER GOURD BUSTERS Jericho down! Atlantis adjusts to FROG SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives and Atlantis can’t believe it!

Atlantis and Jericho rise, and Jericho CHOPS first! Atlantis CHOPS back! Atlantis eggs Jericho on so Jericho CHOPS again! Atlantis CHOPS again! The CHOPS go back and forth, then Jericho gets the edge! But Atlantis CHOPS and CHOPS in return! Atlantis puts Jericho on the ropes, and puts some stank on the CHOP! Dynamite returns to single picture as the fans want “One More Time!” Atlantis gets the fans fired up, and winds up to CHOP again! Atlantis whips but Jericho runs him over! Jericho keeps moving, but Atlantis puts him on the apron! Jericho hurries up a corner, but Atlantis meets him there! SUPER ARM-DRAG!

Jericho tumbles away, Atlantis hurries to cover, TWO! Jericho is still in this, but Atlantis runs up. Jericho gets around to GERMAN- NO, Atlantis victory rolls, then uses the legs to reel Jericho into a wheelbarrow! WHEELBARROW GERMAN! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives again and Atlantis is frustrated. Atlantis drags Jericho to a drop zone, goes up a corner, but Jericho rises! Jericho CHOPS Atlantis, then goes up after him. Jericho comes in from the side, SUPER BULLDOG!! That’s definitely old school for Jericho! He covers, TWO!! Atlantis survives and now Jericho grows frustrated.

Jericho drags Atlantis up to CHOP more. Jericho whips corner to corner, runs up but Atlantis goes up and over! Then he SNAP POWERSLAMS! Cover, TWO! Jericho stays in this but Senior coaches Junior up. Atlantis SUPERKICKS Jericho, runs, but Jericho BOOTS him! Atlantis falls to the apron, Jericho runs to the corner, triangle jump, but Atlantis ducks! Jericho goes right to the floor! Atlantis builds speed and he FLIES! Direct hit on Jericho at the ramp and the fans fire up again! Atlantis rises, he gets Jericho into the ring. “This is Awesome!” as Atlantis goes up the corner. Jericho is in the drop zone, but he rises up to trip Atlantis!

Atlantis is stuck on the corner, Jericho brings him up for haymakers! Jericho then makes sure Atlantis is positioned just right, CHOPS him, but Atlantis fires forearms! Jericho CHOPS again, climbs up to the very top, and he rains down fists! Fans count along, all the way to TEN! SUPER STEINER! Jericho fires up, takes aim, and Atlantis rises. JUDAS- NO, Atlantis ducks it! Then he scoops Jericho, into LA ATLANTITA! Jericho endures the backbreaker rack, and then the spin and swing, but Jericho lands out! Jericho trips Atlantis, WALLS OF JERICHO!! Atlantis endures, reaches out, crawls forward, and his dad coaches him on!

Atlantis reaches, he’s fingertips away! But Jericho drags him away!! Jericho sits deep! Senior throws in the towel!! Jericho wins!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by forfeit

The Lionheart wins, and perhaps the lesson here was knowing when to give up for the sake of your career. Jericho checks on Junior and helps him up. There is still respect between Jericho and the Atlantis familia, will Junior still be the future of CMLL?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Revolution!

After the big win here tonight, Jericho is now part of the All-Star 8 Man Scramble! He joins “Powerhouse” Hobbs, Lance Archer, Brian Cage, Hook, Wardlow, and two more opponents! Those last two spots will be filled in qualifying matches to be held this weekend! CMLL’s Magnus takes on Matt Sydal for Rampage while a Triple Threat on Collision sees Penta El Zero Miedo VS Dante Martin VS Bryan Keith! Who will join the huge match that grants the winner a future AEW World Championship opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Just 24 hours before Revolution, we hear from Toni Storm and Deonna Purrazzo ahead of their AEW Women’s World Championship, and we get a star-studded 8 Man Tag! Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Hook & Daniel Garcia take on Roderick Strong, Brian Cage, Christian Cage & Killswitch/Luchasaurus! Who will have major momentum going into the title matches going into Revolution?

 

The Young Bucks make their way to the ring.

Since they didn’t find Sting backstage anywhere, it seems only logical they come out here to finish the search. There are fans wearing Sting masks, so Nick gets in their face. Is one of them Sting playing the hold “Sting wearing a Sting mask” gag? No but DARBY is! Darby DECKS Nick and fires off on the Bucks! Darby puts Nick in the ring but Matt anchors him! Nick PENALTY KICKS from above! The fans rally for Darby but the Bucks mug him back! They put Darby in the ring, get their bats, and it’s just like the night Darby & Sting won the tag titles! Matt CHOKES Darby, Nick throws off his jacket, and The Bucks sit Darby up.

Fans boo but the Bucks want, and hit the E V P TRIGGER!! Darby goes down, Matt JAMS Darby with the bat! Nick stomps Darby, too! The fans boo but the Bucks just soak it up. Then Matt calls for someone? Ric Flair is here?! The Nature Boy smiles as he struts his way down the ramp, but has he really betrayed Sting? Matt & Nick mug Darby more while Ric takes his time getting to the ring. Ric takes one of the bats, but then he pokes Nick in the eye and JABS Matt! The Nature Boy tricked the Bucks and has them right where he wants ’em! Except Nick LOW BLOWS Ric! Fans boo as Ric falls in a heap!

The Bucks are upset that the Dirtiest Player in the Game actually pulled one over on them, and they dig their boots in! The fans boo, then they call for “STING! STING! STING!” The Bucks soak up the heat, just hoping Sting shows up. But then the music hits and the Bucks get on the defensive! They hurry up the ramp with their bats, but where is he? Sting is lowered in from the rafters!! The fans are thunderous as we flashback to the early days of Crow Sting, and the Bucks can’t believe what they’ve just seen! The Bucks run back up, but bats collide and the Bucks are disarmed! Sting JAMS Matt, JAMS Nick, then CRACKS them with bats!

The fans fire up as Darby goes up and SUPER COFFIN DROPS onto both Bucks!! Darby gets Nick in the ring, Sting storms right in after him! Sting gets Nick for the SCORPION DEATH DROP! Darby slides in and Ric stands back up. The fans howl into the night with these icons, but Matt says they’re gonna come up with a “real nice severance package” for Sting. Will Sting’s last match be his most agonizing defeat? Or will it be his most triumphant victory?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, and I really like how this flowed with just four matches. Granted, this format might just be because this is the go-home with plenty of more to do on Rampage and Collision, but AEW/Tony Khan should still try to book it like this more often. Hangman tricking us with the ankle was clever stuff to sucker Swerve in, but Swerve also owned up to doing messed up stuff so… I guess there isn’t really a Face in the match at all? Just Joe, Hangman and Swerve all being mean and badass, though Hangman is much more Heel right now because he tricked us. Either way, this still keeps everyone strong regardless of who wins, but at this point, the fans are strongly behind Swerve so it’s either Swerve or Joe winning.

Good group promo from Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and I like that they poked a little fun at Caster’s flub. And it’s a fitting move to do the flipside of last week’s mash-up, and it just seems to be the story that Austin gets dunked on by everybody else. As I said for last Saturday, it’d be a shame if BBSG came together just to break up and feud when we’ve basically seen that, but at this point, they haven’t even bothered feuding with other champions yet. We got a really good International Championship match from Cassidy VS Nick with all the overbooking to plug the different title stories, and we might even get Roppongi Vice VS Taven & Bennett for the ROH Tag titles at some point.

Really good stuff from Ospreay and the Don Callis Family, and naturally, there is tension between Ospreay and Konosuke already. Callis is too sure of himself, this match is of course tearing Ospreay away from the faction, and I personally still hope Kyle Fletcher joins him because they’re United Empire brothers. Awesome opening Six Man Tag for Eddie & FTR VS BCC, but BCC winning makes sense. There’s still a very good chance Eddie beats Bryan 1v1 to retain the Triple Crown, which is why Bryan got the win on Eddie right here. FTR VS Mox & Claudio could still go either way, but I’m leaning towards FTR so they can challenge for the tag championships past Revolution.

Really good match from Kris VS Skye, but what in the world is Stokely thinking? He’s teamed with two Faces and he’s trying to Heel it up, and that cost Kris. This is gonna lead to Stokely getting slapped around instead of him breaking Kris and Willow up. But there isn’t much time anymore, so I guess we’re not getting a TBS Championship build for Revolution. Maybe for Big Business in Boston in a couple weeks? It would be fitting if someone faces Julia for the title, and regardless of who wins, out comes Mercedes Mone for the huge homecoming moment, and she immediately sets herself up for a TBS Championship match for Double or Nothing.

Really good promo from Jericho, though I wish I knew more Spanish so I could understand the rest of that last line. But great match from Jericho with Atlantis Jr, though I am a touch surprised Jericho won. But hey, Atlantis Jr. looked great, he’s still a champion in CMLL and is going on quite the run over there, we can only hope AEW and CMLL are able to keep this working relationship going. News came out that there’s some travel visa issues for many different big names, let’s hope it doesn’t force AEW and CMLL to delay whatever Forbidden Door type thing they were working on.

And it seems one thing that did have to be delayed is that Meat Madness match. It was said by Tony Khan himself that document issues, along with some injuries, limited their choices for the big match of big meaty men, so now the All-Star Scramble happens instead. That’ll still be awesome stuff, and if it’s about a future world title shot, you can bet Hobbs or Wardlow comes out on top with this. Wardlow especially given that heated promo he gave last week and how it’ll feed into the Undisputed Kingdom story. If Adam Cole is gonna force Wardlow to hand over the world title, then Wardlow needs to have the world title in the first place.

And really good stuff to feed into Sting’s last Dynamite segment. The Bucks being on the hunt all night was an interesting way to keep us intrigued throughout the show, and you gotta appreciate Matt being the levelheaded one to foil against Nick being the hothead, to where Matt didn’t just barge into Sting’s room just in case. Sting dropping in from the rafters surprised me, also kinda scared me, but it was an awesome move to do that for his final TV appearance as it hearkens back to some of his best stuff in WCW.

Ric Flair tricking the Bucks was a good detail, though I’m surprised they didn’t save this for Revolution, but I suppose that would’ve only been the case if Sting & Darby were winning. I’ve been saying The Bucks are winning to get all that heat on themselves, the math would indicate that, but hey, maybe Sting gets to defy such math and tradition because of how he is so iconic and beloved in pro-wrestling.

My Score: 8.9/10

The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first!

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are ready for another fight with the BCC, but for right now, they’ve got the STP! Will the #TopGuys still be FTR? Or will Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor himself prove they’re in that conversation now?

The teams sort out and Dax starts against #TAIGASTYLE. Lee and Dax tie up, Lee waistlocks and headlocks, then wrenches to hammerlock. Lee shoves Dax then claps at him, but Dax keeps it cool.

They tie up, Lee headlocks, but Cash powers out.

Cash drops, drops, and hurdles to then ELBOW Lee down! Then arm-drag! Cash has the armlock and he slaps Lee around. Cash tags Dax, whips Lee, drop toehold and elbow drop!

Dax headlocks, Shane powers up and out, but Dax RAMS him! Shane says not today! Dax runs again, RAMS again, but Shane stays up. Dax RAMS Shane again, and again, but Shane scoops! Dax slips free, waistlocks, but Shane bucks the O’Conner. Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges, but stays back to avoid hands.

The fans fire up as Dax and Shane reset, tie up, and Dax headlocks. Shane powers up and out, Dax SHOTGUNS him! Shane comes back but Dax avoids the senton! Dax wrenches, but Shane LARIATS!

And he BITES Shane’s forehead! The ref reprimands but Shane lets Dax go. Dax back suplexes, but falls over under Shane! Shane covers, TWO! Tag to Lee, and STP gets Dax up.

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Ladybird Monroe!

La Mera Mera is ranked #2 in the Women’s Division, and we know the AEW Women’s World Championship is spoken for in terms of a challenger. Will Rosa then look to solidify her spot in the TBS Championship chase?

The bell rings and Rosa circles with Monroe. They tie up, go around, and Rosa waistlocks to SLAM Monroe down. Rosa then facelocks, waistlocks, but Monroe switches.

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

 

Six Man Tag: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn VS The Iron Savages & Jacked Jameson!

As the Bang Bang Scissor Gang looks to dominate all of AEW & ROH, they are trying a team remix! Max Caster has a rap for the occasion! “Acclaimed & The Bang Bang, we the real savages. ‘Bout to bring the fight like me against management! These guys’re so mad, they prolly see red!” Oh no, Caster loses the flow! This is a travesty! Bowens takes over to say, “SPRIIINGFIELD, MIZZOU-REEE~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~! Will Billy, his son Colten, and the Switchblade make a killer trio? Or will they all end up sipping the Savage Sauce?

The trios sort out and White wants to start, but so does Billy. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” so White says okay, Billy can start. Billy stares down Beefcake Boulder and the two circle. They tie up, Billy headlocks but Boulder powers up and out! Billy RAMS Boulder, neither falls, and Boulder shows off #TiddyCity! Billy says okay, “SUCK IT!” and eye poke! Billy then runs Boulder over! The fans fire up, Billy runs and drops an elbow, but Boulder moves! Boulder then runs Billy over! Boulder swivels hips, tags Bulk Bronson, and they get Billy up.

Colten whips Bronson to a corner as White argues with Jacked Jameson. Colten goes to a corner, finger guns with his dad, but Jameson now argues with Billy. The ref is busy breaking those two up as Colten runs in, Boulder pulls Bronson to safety! Colten tumbles up and out and to the floor! Austin and Bowens check on Colten but Bronson SMACKS Colten off the apron! Bronson puts Colten in, covers, ONE!! Bronson drags Colten up and FLAPJACKS him off buckles!

Bronson goes up the ropes to HIP DROP Colten! Tag to Jameson, he HIP DROPS Colten! Boulder tags in, he stomps around and the fans fire up. Boulder brings Colten up, to suplex high and hard!

Winners: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn, by pinfall

It was a rocky start but a smooth finish as the hybrid trio works out! Will this super group be untouchable all the way to the top of the mountain?

 

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

 

Bryan Keith VS Malakai Black!

The Bounty Hunter wants gold, but he’ll have to step into the shadows first. The House of Black has been nothing but brutal and sadistic, will Malakai add Keith to the body count?

My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10
