The Raw Women’s Champion has answered the open challenge and Full Sail is happy she did!

WarGames history is being made!

That’s because a Women’s WarGames match is finally happening!

Shayna says everyone was picking a fight with her so bad, it has led to this. Rhea says that in Chicago, they’ll lock it down. The brawls we’ve had so far will not compare. Shayna equates it to a “two year old’s tantrum” but Rhea won’t be cutting in line in front of the Evil Genius, EST or KLR. Rhea says Shayna just thinks she has a tough team, but the Shiniest Wizard, Mrs. Wrestling and the Head Baddie have shown what tough means. Io Shirai is manic over this historic match! WarGames isn’t about friendships, it’s about risk versus reward. But it’s Rhea’s team that’s locked inside with Shayna’s, and her fearsome foursome hold the keys to the entire future of the NXT Women’s Division. “let’s make some history, and let’s go to war.”

Winners: The Viking Raiders, Erik pinning

This is one match Full Sail is happy to see the invaders win! The Raw Tag Team Champions had a victorious return, but will they continue that warpath through Survivor Series?

 

Cathy Kelley has big news!

The massive melee between Pete Dunne, Killian Dain and Damien Priest is going to come to a head at WarGames in a Triple Threat match, and the winner will be the #1 Contender to THE NXT Championship, at Survivor Series! But if you asked said champion, Adam Cole believes this is just “bad timing” for them. This run Cole is on is unstoppable. He will arrive at Chicago champion and vows to leave as champion. Who between Bruiserweight, Beast of Belfast and brutal Archer of Infamy will be the one to go after the cocky leader of the Undisputed Era?

 

Ladder Match: Adam Cole VS Dominik Dijakovic!

The Undisputed Era is the faction that practically brought WarGames back, as they’ve been part of the first two. The third time is no different, but it does help if the Undisputed Era can have the advantage. With Team Ciampa still not complete, can Cole put a nail in the coffin by winning this match? Or will the Croatian Colossus climb up higher than ever before to make sure their future fourth man will have an even bigger impact?

Dijakovic clutches his own bad leg, but Cole takes it and swings it into the post! And again! And again! Cole shows no mercy to Dijakovic as NXT goes picture in picture.

Cole watches Dijakovic writhe while going for the big ladder by the ramp. Cole puts this ladder in, but then sees Dijakovic get up. Cole BOOTS Dijakovic down, and then folds up the standing ladder.

NXT!” as Cole heads up the standing ladder. But Dijakovic clamps his hand on again! Cole hammers back but Dijakovic still CHOKE SLAMS Cole onto the first ladder!! Fans chant “MAMMA MIA!” as Cole writhes in agony!

Dijakovic is up and he heads up top. Cole hurries to anchor a foot, but Dijakovic hops down to torture rack. Cole fights with fists, and then gets to the ladder! He is already halfway up and reaching for the briefcase! Dijakovic yanks Cole off, but Cole uses it for a PANAMA SUNRISE! Full Sail is fired up all over again as Dijakovic flops out of the ring. Cole sees his opening and scurries up top! Cole is almost there but Dijakovic returns! Dijakovic clubs Cole down and has the torture rack, FEAST YOUR EYES! But that turns out double-edged for Dijakovic’s bad leg! Fans rally up and Dijakovic hobbles up. The ladder bridge helps him get up part of the way. Dijakovic has to hop rather than climb, but Cole returns! Cole gets up and they both grab at the briefcase! Cole uses the case to SMASH Dijakovic in the head! And then Dijakovic falls through the ladder bridge!! Cole unhooks the briefcase, COLE WINS!

Winner: Adam Cole; The Undisputed Era have WarGames Advantage

And he didn’t even need the Undisputed Era to help him! Now Cole, Strong, Fish & O’Reilly will have the leg up on Dijakovic, Tommaso Ciampa, and Keith Lee. The Undisputed Era come out to celebrate with Cole, but the SmackDown superstars have regrouped. As have the Raw superstars, which include Zack Ryder and the Street Profits! The Undisputed Era is surrounded, and the fight is on! SmackDown and Raw put the Undisputed Era down, and then go after each other! But then more NXT superstars appear! This is a lot like what Raw was like! But wait, is that Drew McIntyre?! He gives Dijakovic a CLAYMORE!! And he says “SUCK IT!”

But Keith Lee gets in, and McIntyre turns around for a SPIRIT BOMB!! But Ivar circles with Lee now. But instead of brawling with each other, they both see the chaotic crowd of other superstars outside the ring. These two behemoths build speed and they BOTH FLY!! The Limitless One and the Warbeard bowl over Raw, SmackDown, and NXT! Cole pops out, grinning that he’s the last one standing. But then he turns around, and it’s SETH ROLLINS! SUPERKICK! Full Sail erupts with both cheers and boos as Rollins stomps “Burn It Down!” Rollins aims at Cole, but here comes Ciampa! The Psycho Killer is here, because this is Daddy’s Home. Rollins wants Ciampa to bring the fight, and Ciampa goes to the ring. But then he doesn’t get in, he gives Cole the PSYCHO KNEE! The Blackheart settles things with his enemy first, then gets in the ring with Rollins.

Fans feel “Seth’s Not Cool!” as he and Ciampa stare down. Rollins and Ciampa throw hands! Ciampa knees low, runs, but into a forearm! Rollins runs but into a back elbow! Ciampa sees Fish coming but gets him with Willow’s Bell, his draping DDT! NXT goes off the air, but thankfully WWE YouTube has the rest!

Roderick Strong gets in, but gets a Fairy Tale Ending! Rollins adds the CURB STOMP! Fans are cheering, and suddenly some think, “He’s the Fourth! He’s the Fourth!” Rollins leaves without confirming or denying, and Ciampa waves him good-bye. Rollins says “See you Sunday,” as he assumes Ciampa will lead Team NXT into the 15-Man Elimination match. If Rollins isn’t the surprise fourth man, then who is? It seems we won’t find out until WarGames has begun!

 


 

My Thoughts:

THIS is what a go-home should be! NXT may be pulling double duty for Survivor Series Weekend this year, but you’d think they’d done this before. Everything was smooth, nothing was outright filler, and it all works out so that the math keeps all three brands strong without weird finishes and inexplicable camera cuts. Becky starts things off with straight fire, her match with Rhea was great, and in this situation, an attack to end the match makes a lot of sense. Shayna doesn’t like Becky, she doesn’t like Rhea, of course she and her Horsewomen will take advantage of both women being down. Then later in the night, another great match for KLR and Dakota, but naturally the UK Women’s Champion wins to help Team Shayna. That brawl of all the women was great, and Nikki Cross is a Full Sail favorite so it was great for her to just wreck shop with that trash can lid. I really liked that Kairi and Shirai got a moment, too. Maybe that plays into the match, and either Kabuki Warriors defect to NXT or Shirai joins them. Either way I want them all to reunite now that they’re all Heels.

The men also had great parallels to such action, and played off it so it wouldn’t be an exact copy. Ricochet wrecking Kona Reeves was great, because it just felt like a set-up. Reeves wasn’t going to last against Riddle, and the match we got instead was great. The parallel being that superstars from SmackDown, or more specifically, Team Sami, attacked. The difference was them being thwarted and Riddle still getting a win. His brawl with Balor was great, their match is going to be an instant classic. We got an amazing match for The Revival and reDRagon, a rare Heels VS Heels. With talk of Revival still wanting out, why can’t they defect to NXT and be the new Gallows and Anderson for Finn? Then we got a great surprise match, Viking Raiders VS Forgotten Sons. Forgotten Sons may have red hot go-away heat, but they can put on a great match. Raiders win so that NXT isn’t pulling away in the race, and this ups things for the tag champions triple threat.

I am glad to hear that we are getting that triple threat of Dain-Dunne-Damien, and glad to know it will be to give Adam Cole a challenger. I still feel like WWE is having NXT do too much if it’s going to be Cole VS one of them at Survivor Series after a literally brutal match for WarGames. Hell, after what Cole just went through in the ladder match, I’m surprised his leg is okay. My guess is Dunne wins as the one Face in it all, and we can at least tease history being made, Dunne becoming first man to hold both WWE United Kingdom and THE NXT Championship in his career. Cole VS Dijakovic was great, because again, this match parallels Mia VS Shirai from last week, in concept at least. The execution was great, I was really impressed they didn’t parallel the interference. But then it all came out with yet another triple threat brawl to end the show.

I really expected A) Ciampa to be accompanied by the fourth man, or B) offer Rollins that spot after fighting off Undisputed Era. I feel like being in WarGames would’ve gotten Rollins his cool edgy quality back but no, Rollins needs to be able to compete at Survivor Series against NXT as enemies. Unless he defects, which is seemingly less likelier by the moment. My money is on Velveteen Dream being the fourth man because he’ll want revenge on Undisputed Era for (kayfabe) taking him out of action. And I would still hope NXT doesn’t directly copy and paste WarGames match competitors for the 5v5v5 matches, certainly not in the men’s. Use that match to highlight superstars still really great but not all banged up to hell. Now that Riddle isn’t in it, he can be on Team NXT with Ciampa, and perhaps get some NXT UK guys if possible so that it keeps continuity with the invasions. Walter getting in there with Strowman from SmackDown and McIntyre from Raw would be so good!

My Score: 9.2/10

AEW Collision bleeds over a bit.

Bryan Danielson is still down on the ramp after Konosuke Takeshita’s Brainbuster and the medics check him. The battle with Will Ospreay at Dynasty is still in the books, but what condition will Bryan be in?

 

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

FTW Championship: Hook VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil knows he’s up against a bad, bad man, but this is FTW Rules! Everyone who fights for this title is a bad, bad man, so will Hook prove he’s the baddest? Or will Shane #SendHook back to New York without his gold?

Shane taunts Hook, puts him in a corner, and CHOPS again! Hook staggers to another corner, Shane taunts him, “I thought you were the man!” Shane BODY BLOWS again and Hook coughs. Hook fires hands in return, backs Shane down, then reels Shane in! Shane’s too big for the suplex, though!

Shane shoves Hook, and BODY BLOWS! Hook falls to the mat, but Shane drags him back up. Shane HEADBUTTS Hook, Hook is dazed, and Shane says he thought Hook was a killer. Shane says to bow down to the killer that’s badder! Shane CHOPS Hook, suplexes him, and hangs him out to dry!

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?

 

AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over. Rocky hooks an arm but Roddy fights off the takedown to hip toss and cover. ONE, but Roddy facelocks. Rocky fights up, pries at the hold, but Roddy holds on tight. Rocky still fights his way out of the hold, wristlocks and wrenches again, then YANKS the arm.

Roddy ROCKS Rocky then CHOPS him! Roddy whips, Rocky slides under then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA! The fans fire up as Rocky then wrenches Roddy and goes up a corner. Rocky FLYING KNEE DROPS right on the arm! The fans cheer the Latino Heat and Rocky goes back to the corner. Rocky CHOPS Roddy, Roddy CHOPS back! Rocky CHOPS, Roddy kicks low! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, ROCKS him, then reels Rocky in for a BACKBREAKER! Rocky writhes but Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy and The Kingdom talk trash, Roddy swings but Rocky dodges! Rocky CHOPS and then stomps away on Roddy!

Rocky digs his boot in, lets off as the ref counts, then stands Roddy up. Rocky snapmares and runs to basement dropkick! Roddy flounders, Rocky covers, ONE!! Rocky keeps one eye on The Kingdom, then he brings Roddy around. UPPERCUT and Roddy staggers. Roddy BOOTS, whips, but Rocky goes Spiderman! Rocky then dodges Roddy and sends him tumbling out! Rocky goes out to PENALTY KICK from the apron! Rocky leaps to DIVING STOMP! Roddy writhes, Rocky gives more Latino Heat, and BOTB goes picture in picture.

Rocky tells The Kingdom to back off, and so does the ref. Taven mocks Rocky’s Latino Heat, but Rocky puts Roddy in the ring. Rocky storms up on Roddy to KICK his leg! Roddy hobbles to a corner, Rocky CHOPS him and then follows him. Rocky ROCKS Roddy, ROCKS him again, but Roddy bails out. Rocky goes after Roddy on the apron, but Roddy lifts! Rocky fights that to then elbow Roddy! But Rocky has to watch out for The Kingdom lurking! Roddy BOOTS Rocky, then POSTS him! Rocky falls to the floor, Roddy hops down and he drags Rocky up. Roddy gives Rocky a RAILING BACKBREAKER! Rocky writhes, The Kingdom mocks him more, and Roddy drags Rocky up.

Roddy puts Rocky in the ring, stomps Rocky around, then drags him up to CHOP! Rocky staggers to a corner, Roddy storms up on him, and then DECKS him! Roddy soaks up the heat, then he digs his boots into Rocky! The ref counts, Roddy lets off at 4, but just switches feet! The ref counts more, Roddy steps away, and Rocky sputters along the ropes. Roddy gets Rocky up but Rocky ROCKS him first! And again! Roddy hits back, Rocky CHOPS, and CHOPS! Rocky runs, but Roddy blocks the Rana to make it a POWER BREAKER! Rocky writhes, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy clamps onto Rocky with a motorcycle stretch!

Rocky endures as Roddy digs knee into Rocky’s back. Rocky fights up, moves around, but Roddy knees him low! Roddy scoops Rocky to RAM him into buckles! Then OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE! Cover, TWO! Rocky is still in this but Roddy stays on Rocky with stomps. Roddy stomps and stomps as BOTB returns to single picture. Roddy goes back to the motorcycle stretch but the fans rally again. Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS! Roddy wobbles, Rocky KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS!

Rocky CHOPS, whips, but Roddy reverses. Rocky reverses back to kick, but Roddy ducks the enzigiri! Rocky REWIND HEEL KICKS! Roddy flops out of the ring and the fans fire up! Rocky builds speed, fakes Roddy out and DIVES onto Taven! Then Rocky DIVES onto Roddy! Rocky puts Roddy in, runs up, SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Rocky keeps his cool. Rocky fires forearms in the corner, then winds up! The fans fire up as Rocky runs in, clothesline! Another clothesline! But Roddy follows to RAM Rocky, and CHOP him! And CHOP! And CHOP!

Roddy is frustrated but he hauls Rocky up. Fireman’s carry, but Rocky fights free! Roddy shoves, lifts again, but Rocky pops up to RANA! The fans fire up as Rocky ducks ‘n’ dodges, tilt-o-whirls and DDTS! Cover, TWO! Roddy survives but Rocky stays focused. The fans rally for Rocky as he stalks Roddy. Roddy RAMS Rocky, gets him up top, and then climbs up after him. Rocky fights with fists and a HEADBUTT! Rocky then cravats, SUPER SLICED BREAD!! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives again and Rocky is beside himself! The Kingdom is also worried, they rally up for Roddy. The fans rally for Rocky as he goes out to the apron.

Rocky climbs but The Kingdom is lurking again. The ref tells them to back off, but Roddy ROCKS Rocky first! Roddy has Rocky up top but Rocky DECKS Roddy! Rocky adjusts, Roddy stands, METE- STRONG KNEE!! Cover, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (denies Rocky Romero a title opportunity)

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?

 

ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?


My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (4/13/24)

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.
  • AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay; Storm wins and denies AZM a title match.
  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?

 

Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston. Will grounding high-fliers make the House ready for those brawlers? Or is this where the House will fold?

The trios sort out and the fans bark as Buddy starts against Action. The fans rally as the two circle, feel things out, and tie up. Buddy wrenches an arm to a wristlock, YANKS it and grinds the arm down. Action fights up, Buddy wrenches again, but Action rolls, handsprings and wrenches back. Action wristlocks, but Buddy rolls, handsprings and wrenches again. The fans cheer the technical exchange, and Action rolls, kips up, and wrenches back.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?

 

Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?

Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands? Or can Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood find a way to come out on top?

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine. Bryan might as well just expect not to walk out on his own. One last message has been sent, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will the Protostar & Powerhouse pulverize the BCC?

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
