30 Minute Iron Man Match: Kenny Omega VS PAC!

AEW history is being made again! Will it be the Best Bout Machine or The Bastard that outdoes the other in this incredible tiebreaker?

An interesting move is that the Young Bucks, Matt and Nick Jackson, are still accompanying Omega to the ring ahead of their AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution against him. And at the same time, Hangman Page is not, despite him being Omega’s partner. But the main concern is this match here. Will Omega survive Pac to give his all in Elite VS Elite?

The bell rings and the countdown begins. Omega shoves Pac as fans rally behind him. Pac and Omega circle and Pac even encourages fans to cheer. The two tie up, go around, and Omega ends up putting Pac against ropes as fans rally the Terminator drums already. Omega lets up and dares Pac to bring it. Fans cheer while Pac keeps his cool. Pac and Omega circle and tie up with a test of strength. Pac breaks the grapple but Omega wrenches him to the wristlock. Fans rally as Omega cranks on the hand, but Pac rolls and pries free to wrench Omega in return. Omega rolls, handsprings and wrenches. Pac handsprings through that, and Omega grins.

Omega and Pac get face to face, and Pac pie faces. Omega gives it back, and now we have a brawl! Forearm for forearm, back and forth, until Omega CHOPS! Pac takes a moment before swinging. Omega redirects him and dropkicks the legs out, only to run into a SUPERKICK! Pac waistlocks, Omega standing switches but Pac denies the full nelson. Omega holds on as Pac runs so Pac elbows.

And CHOPS again! Omega whips Pac but Pac holds the ropes. Omega throws a big forearm and another, then wrenches to CHOP!

Pac reverses the whip but Omega goes up and over. Omega comes back, Pac slips out to the outside, slingshot CUTTER! Cover, TWO!!

We reach the 20 minute mark and fans rally up. Pac mocks the fans cheering for Omega and BOOTS Omega in the back of the head! Fans boo but Pac soaks it up. Pac drops a knee on Omega’s face, then another. Omega crawls to ropes but Pac gives him toying kicks. Pac chokes Omega on the ropes, the ref counts and Pac lets up at 4. Fans boo as Pac glares at the Bucks. Pac CHOPS Omega in the corner, then CHOPS again! Omega pie faces and eggs Pac on, so Pac CHOPS again! Pac whips, Omega dodges, but Pac BOOTS Omega again. Omega blocks the next boot to BOOT Pac into the corner! Fans rally as Omega catches his breath and Pac flounders. Pac drags himself up and throws a forearm. Omega throws one back, and we have another brawl!

Pac uses his head to stand Omega up to ROCK him with a right. Omega comes back with another! The forearms continue back and forth, and the two grind foreheads just to stay up. Now they pick up speed!

Fans cheer for “A E DUB!” giving us this incredible opener! Omega sits up first and brings Pac around. Omega puts Pac in a corner, goes corner to corner, for a V-TRIGGER! He tries the Electric Chair again, but brings Pac up top!? Fans are freaking out, a Pac spins around to SUPER POWERBOMB! Omega flounders to the opposite corner and Pac staggers in.

Pac dropkicks Omega into the ref! The medics now have to check on both Omega and the ref! Pac grins as time ticks off in his favor. Pac brings out a TABLE! Fans are conflicted, because they love tables but hate Pac. Pac still stands up the table and positions it as we approach 8 minutes.

Pac clubs Omega in his throat! Omega gasps for air as Pac climbs into the ring and up to the top rope! Fans freak out as Pac launches the SUPER SHOOTING STAR!! Pac and Omega crash through the table!! The clock is still ticking as fans again lose their minds! Now both men need to be checked on because the table did as much damage to Pac as it did to Omega.

Pac survives the knee that surpasses god?! Omega drags Pac up, Electric Chairs, folds, ONE WINGED ANGEL!! Cover, Omega wins!!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall

Incredible! A historic match that truly makes an impact! But the Bucks saw it themselves, this took so much out of Omega! Will three days be enough for him to recover and fight alongside Hangman Page?


AEW is picture in picture as Pac makes his way up the ramp.

Tony Schiavone waits for him, and wants Pac to stay calm as we prepare for an on-stage interview.

AEW returns to single picture and Tony speaks for all of us when he says that was “one hell of a match.” But after all the talking and tormenting, and Pac loses the tiebreaker? What is Tony up to, huh? Is he taking the piss out of Pac? No, he just- Wait, Orange Cassidy appears? What is Freshly Squeezed doing confronting Pac? Even Pac thinks this is a joke. But Cassidy takes off the sunglasses! You know he’s serious now. So Pac DECKS him! Pac takes his frustrations out on Cassidy but security backs him off. Fans boo as Pac leaves and security checks on Cassidy. The Sloth has courage to stand up to the British honey badger, but when will we see this showdown happen in the ring?


Six Man Tag: The Inner Circle VS Jurassic Express!

Given all the chaos and conflict in last week’s Tag Team Battle Royal, a showdown of Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz with Jungle Boy, Marko Stunt and Luchasaurus was bound to happen. The Spanish God helped screw over the boy and his dinosaur, but will he and the Proud ‘n’ Powerful go extinct?

AEW is picture in picture as Allin gives his cue card promo.

“In 3 days… In Chicago… At Revolution…” Allin pauses to hear out the fans as they cheer. “The Coffin WILL drop!” Allin tears the card apart, will he also tear Sammy to shreds?


AEW looks back on MJF and Cody Rhodes.

“My relationship with Cody was so close, just because he was the first person who really believed in me. I’m going to be right there ringside with him. I’m going to be cheering him on, I’m gong to be there for him. And come November 9th, history will be made and a legend will be born.” These were the words MJF said in the build to Cody VS Jericho for the AEW World Championship on the way to Full Gear. But when that night came, MJF threw the towel in as Cody endured the Walls of Jericho. And then betrayed Cody by kicking him in the balls! “Cody only wanted not to keep me under his wing, but to keep me under his thumb.”

Cody would retaliate by saying MJF just needed to name a price. MJF gave three stipulations: don’t touch MJF before AEW Revolution; have a steel cage match with Wardlow; take ten lashes from MJF. The lashes came before the cage fight, but Cody went through it all because that is what revenge means to him. And it all infuriated MJF, because he hoped Cody would fall. Now MJF must face the consequences of his actions. Will MJF come to regret making the American Nightmare his worst enemy?


The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny VS Best Friends w/ Orange Cassidy!

Another showdown comes about because of the Tag Team Battle Royal. Cassidy may still be stinging from the Bastard’s sucker punch, he might also still be sore from the Bunny’s low blow. Will Allie’s boys, Braxton Sutter & Andy Williams, have what it takes to strike down the power of friendship?

The teams sort out and we start with The Blade and #JustTrent. Trent and Blade circle but Blade sucker punches Chuck Taylor!

The Dark Order speaks.

“The Exalted One is near, and he has given us our assignments.” Evil Uno and Stu Grayson will show SCU the true might of the Dark Order. Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky are in for a rough night. And when it is all said and done, Christopher Daniels will find he is obsolete.


AEW shares Jim Ross’ interview with Hangman, Omega and The Young Bucks.

Elite VS Elite is happening in Chicago for the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Did they imagine this scenario a year ago? No, this is the last thing Matt and Nick thought would happen. He didn’t think Kenny Omega and Hangman Page would be a tag team, let alone champions. They’re great singles wrestlers, but it was always Matt and Nick as the top tag team. But Matt is still proud of his friends, and it’ll be a great match. JR does also agree that the Bucks are the best tag team in the world, but why aren’t they champions? Nick says that’s a hard question. Omega says it was about being in the right place at the right time. He and Hangman tried something out and it worked.

The Bucks are the best, they are inspirational, and every time Omega steps in the ring alongside Hangman, Omega pictures is as their chance to be just like the Bucks. Hangman says this was a “big accident.” That’s what it sounds like from the others. Omega defends how he worded it. They built a team from the ground up and earned the titles. JR sure says Hangman is “uncomfortable.” He’s all fidgety and has a drink in his hand. Again. Hangman says he’s just doing the interview. Nick says in the end, they care about Hangman. But JR says this is THE match with opponents who know each other so well. How do they prepare for such a match-up?

The Bucks admit Omega and Hangman know just about everything about them. They’ve teamed together, lived together, and had Omega and Hangman over to spend time with the family. Matt loves them, they’re his best friends. Nick and Matt are competitors, but are humans. However, AEW Revolution will see the competitors who want those titles. People have said the Bucks are the best tag team in the world, Omega and Hangman aren’t, and the Bucks are done losing sleep over not having the titles. But even then, this is The Elite, they’ll be friends at the end of the day because that’s bigger than the titles. What’s bigger than the titles? Hangman gets riled up. He told them he walked out of the Elite! He doesn’t want to be part of it and they couldn’t let him go!

Now Matt gets upset. After everything they did for Hangman, from bringing him onto the Bullet Club and then onto Being the Elite, they made him a star! Hangman can’t just walk out on that! Hangman was an ROH henchman jobber and they changed that for him! Why does he have a chip on his shoulder over that!? A chip?! The only thing on his shoulder is his title belt! The biggest accomplishment of his career, something he did for himself, and now the Bucks want to take that from him! Omega says this is business. Well Hangman’s glass is empty, so he’s out. This explains why Hangman wasn’t ringside for the Iron Man match. But will The Elite be fine after Revolution?


AEW returns, ready for the World Championship weigh-in!

Tony Schiavone joins AEW officials and ring girls (apparently AEW has those, too) as we make this official. The master of ceremonies will be “the world’s most dangerous announcer,” Gary Michael Cappetta! The announcing legend joins everyone in the ring and thanks Tony for this honor. “Ladies and gentlemen, you can feel the excitement!” Are you ready for Revolution? Fans cheer in agreement as Cappetta cues up this AEW World Heavyweight Championship match. The last thing is tonight’s weigh-in! First, the challenger, from Cincinnati, Ohio, JON MOXLEY! The Maniac again enters from the audience and shakes hands with Tony. And then, accompanied by the Inner Circle, Le Champion, CHRIS JERICHO!

The Inner Circle wear track suits to show they are in fact the “Painmaker Posse” as described earlier. They walk in single file to the ring to show solidarity behind their charismatic leader. Fans sing the theme as Jericho joins everyone in the ring. Cappetta introduces the brand new scale that will determine both men’s weights. Jericho doesn’t want to step on the scale just yet. He knows that the “weird little man” is an experienced announcer, but judging from his announcing style, “it’s no wonder WCW went out of business.” But in Le Champion’s world, the Painmaker goes LAST. That’s true, so the challenger goes first. Moxley doesn’t hesitate to take off the boots and the hoodie to make sure this is his true weight.

The scales are tipped and Moxley weighs in at… 234 pounds. A lean, mean fighting machine is the Maniac. But now it is Jericho’s turn. Jericho gets on the scale but with his belt and full gear. He hands the belt over to Santana, then takes off the sunglasses to give to Ortiz. Jericho takes his time taking off the bandanna, and then tells Kansas City to “shut your ass!” Fans boo and Jericho soaks it up before taking off the track suit. The fans use the KC Chiefs war cry to troll Jericho, but he gets them back with, “Mahomes is a piece of s*it!” Jericho finally takes off the track suit as fans call him “A**hole!” Le Champion finally steps on the scale, but then gets in Moxley’s face. So Moxley HEADBUTTS him!! The Inner Circle goes after him! Moxley manages to drop Santana with PARADIGM SHIFT!

Sammy, Ortiz and Hager still go after Moxley while Jericho sits up with a bloody face. The headbutt got the bridge of his nose! Moxley gets mugged and security can’t get in there to stop them. Jericho stands up and here comes DUSTIN RHODES! The Natural wants after the Big Hurt, and he clotheslines him right out! Dustin is after Hager and puts him into the crowd! Jericho throws security out to go after Moxley! The Inner Circle help Jericho beat Moxley down while Dustin and Hager fight by the concessions! Hager knees LOW, then throws Dustin into a wall! The DIPPIN’ DOTS!

Back in the ring, Moxley continues to get beaten down, until DARBY ALLIN appears! Allin smacks Santana with the skateboard but Sammy KNEES Allin down! Sammy has the skateboard and HEAD SHOTS Allin! The skateboard breaks, but Moxley hits Ortiz with a PARADIGM SHIFT! Sammy drags Allin out but Moxley is alone with Jericho! Fans are thunderous as these two start throwing hands! Revolution comes early, but Santana LOW BLOWS! JUDAS EFFECT! Moxley goes down and fans boo! Jericho drags Moxley to the scale to give MOXLEY PARADIGM SHIFT to the scale! Fans boo as Jericho holds up the AEW World (Heavyweight) Championship. Will this be how Revolution ends this Saturday?



My Thoughts:

A really good go-home right here. All the matches were great, and that 30-minute Iron Man match alone was incredible. I like that JR’s interview with The Elite tied back to it to help us understand why Hangman wasn’t ringside, it all shows the tensions between them are specifically Hangman and the Bucks. Both sides of that literal argument were valid perspectives, but I’d probably take Hangman’s side that he just wants to prove he can be something because of him, not because of The Elite. I’d like to see that tag team match boil down to Hangman trying to do it all on his own, only to crash and burn. That could really give Hangman’s own personal story some real dimension as he tries to reaffirm his individual worth.

PAC VS Orange Cassidy is going to be an interesting match. I want to see what happens when Cassidy “tries” for once. Best Friends VS Butcher & Blade was a good match, and with Best Friends winning, I’d like to see if they step up into the tag title scene for the Spring phase of AEW. The Six Man Tag was great, and it was great for Allin to help Jurassic Express beat The Inner Circle. Hopefully those AEW Trios Titles arrive sooner rather than later. Also please tell me they don’t plan on changing the name of the Inner Circle to the Painmaker Posse. That just makes me wince hearing it.

Dark Order VS SCU gets to be part of the card now, as will Nyla Rose VS Kris Statlander for the AEW Women’s World Championship. Those matches are going to be great either way, but Dark Order certainly made a huge tease with using the word “obsolete.” I don’t think it can be either Hardy brother yet, but they’re sure keeping the dream alive. We got a great final hype package for Cody VS MJF, and we got a great Women’s Fatal 4 to be the main event match. Shida taking the win is logical, she’s been on a great streak even with having lost an early title opportunity against Riho. I feel that AEW still subscribes to Face VS Heel like everyone else, and I don’t see Rose losing anyway, so Rose VS Shida will make a great match-up.

I suppose Painmaker Posse was the thing because of this “real fight” feel they were going for tonight. But did the final segment need to be a weigh-in? They kinda slapped “heavyweight” onto the title like a sticker. Yes, it was great seeing ring card girls, and Jericho using Moxley’s own move into the scale was a great ending spot. But all the same things could’ve been done with a mock press conference. You can still have Jericho and Moxley get face to face, bust Jericho open with a headbutt, have Dustin and Darby reinforce Moxley only for the Inner Circle members to stand tall, and then the stolen Paradigm Shift could’ve been done to a table, the ramp or the stage. All details that would’ve made things a bit better in the end. Either way, Moxley VS Jericho will be a great match that I personally hope Moxley wins.

My Score: 9/10

“Tonight I win back the championship that changed my life from Christian Cage and Luchasaurus. I’m not a stupid man, I know this is gonna be a Handicap match. But I am gonna walk out the new Face of TNT.

Christian Cage speaks.

“Tonight on Collision, Darby, you’re challenging myself and Luchasaurus in a three way match for the TNT Championship. Let me remind you that Sting is not allowed at ringside and I don’t like your chances. We will remain the Face of TNT now and forever. Do you understand me?”


Ricky Starks speaks.

“Bryan Danielson, you have never tapped me out. I passed out. You’re talking to a guy that’s been to Heaven, so if you’re looking test God, look no further than Absolute Ricky Starks. Tonight, I put you six feet under.”

Bryan Danielson speaks.

“Ricky Starks, you’re in a lot of trouble for challenging me to a Texas Death Match. A match where to win, you have to knock somebody down and keep them down. Here’s the thing, people have been trying to keep me down my entire career, and nobody has succeeded yet. And Ricky, you sure as Hell won’t succeed tonight either.” Will the American Dragon once again slay the Absolute?


AEW TNT Championship Triple Threat: Luchasaurus VS Christian Cage VS Darby Allin!

As the Relentless One just said, this might as well be a Handicap Match, because you can bet Captain Charisma and his Right Hand of Destruction are united in destroying Darby. Will Darby even survive this match? Or will he find a way back to former glory?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who really wears that title after this!

The bell rings and Darby is wary of his enemies. Fans rally for Darby, but Christian bails so this turns into a 1v1 match. Luchasaurus and Darby circle, and Luchasaurus taunts Darby with a test of strength. Darby throws POCKET SAND! And then he DIVES onto Christian! Darby RAMS Christian into steel steps, then puts him in the ring! Darby hurries to CODE RED! Cover, TWO!! Darby keeps moving and he DIVES onto Luchasaurus! Down goes the dinosaur! But Christian pokes Darby in the eyes, and HOTSHOTS him to the floor! Luchasaurus is up and he drags Darby over to RAM into railing!

Fans rally for Darby but Luchasaurus is on him again! Luchasaurus whips Darby into more railing! Fans actually duel as Luchasaurus fetches a chair for Christian then puts Darby in. Christian soaks up the cheers and jeers, then he sits Darby in the chair to CHOKE him on the ropes! Christian stands on Darby, the ref reprimands but there’s nothing to be done in a Triple Threat. Christian drags Darby up, and CHOKES him against the chair’s back! Christian says Darby did this to himself. But then Darby throws hands! Luchasaurus CHOKES Christian, then BACK SUPLEXES him and the chair!

Luchasaurus goes to cover but Christian tells him no, they need to do more damage. Luchasaurus goes out to fetch more items, but Christian covers Darby! TWO! Darby is still in this but Christian TOSSES him out! Christian goes out to stand Darby up, and CHOPS him against the railing! Darby staggers, Christian and Luchasaurus surround him, then they double whip him hard into steel steps! Darby tumbles up and over, fans boo Christian, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Christian flexes, then stalks Darby. Christian SMACKS Darby off steps, then Luchasaurus brings Darby around to CHOP against the apron. Darby flops over and Christian is there to whip him into more railing! Darby staggers all around, Christian & Luchasaurus stalk him to the other corner. Christian gets the chair again to JAM Darby! And again! Darby staggers and stumbles away but Christian follows after. Christian pushes Darby into the ring, then brings him up. Christian has Luchasaurus stand back. Christian talks trash right to Darby’s face, pie faces him and smears the face pain before he CHOPS and CHOPS!

Christian tells Luchasaurus what to do, then he runs at Darby. Darby dodges to send Christian out! Darby fires off on Luchasaurus, but Luchasaurus shoves him back and HEADBUTTS him down! Luchasaurus stands on Darby’s back! Darby endures, even as Luchasaurus steps all over him! Darby crawls to a corner, Luchasaurus brings him up and Christian throws hands on Darby! Collision returns to single picture as the mugging moves to the corner. Fans boo as Christian & Luchasaurus double whip Darby into a corner. Luchasaurus runs in but Darby dodges and Luchasaurus POSTS himself!

Fans fire up as Christian runs in, Darby dodges and he POSTS himself! Roll up, TWO! Oklahoma roll, TWO! Christian kicks low to suplex, but Darby slips out, SCORPION DEATH DROP! Fans fire up as Darby climbs! But Luchasaurus drags Christian to safety! So Darby just SUPER COFFIN SPLASHES!! Fans are thunderous as both men go down! Darby puts Luchasaurus in the ring, climbs up, and Luchasaurus stands. Darby MISSILE- NO, Luchasaurus catches him! JURASSIC- NO, Darby slips out! Darby BOOTS Luchasaurus, then hits a DIAMOND DUST! But Christian has the title belt!

Christian aims but Darby ducks! SHOTGUN! Down goes Christian! Darby runs in but Luchasaurus catches him, JURASSIC CHOKE SLAM! Darby flops out of the ring and Luchasaurus sees the belt. It is rightfully his, so he picks it up! Fans cheer that he finally holds HIS belt! Christian storms in but Luchasaurus won’t give it back! Christian asks for the belt back, fans say “IT’S YOUR BELT! IT’S YOUR BELT!” Luchasaurus still hands the belt over to Christian, but then Darby shoves Christian into Luchasaurus! And then Darby BELT SHOTS Luchasaurus!! Cover, TWO?!? Luchasaurus survives  but Darby PENALTY KICKS!

Darby goes up to COFFIN DROP!! But Christian returns to POST Darby! Cover on Luchasaurus, CHRISTIAN WINS!!

Winner: Christian Cage, by pinfall (NEW AEW TNT Champion)

Well, at least now Christian will be rightfully holding onto this belt. Sleazy as he is, Captain Charisma truly reigns as the Face of TNT, will Darby have to move on to a new goal? As for Luchasaurus, he sees Christian’s hand be raised, and then Christian hugs him? Well, when one wins, they both win, right? Christian has Luchasaurus lift him onto his shoulders, then Christian raises the belt high above his head. Will Luchasaurus ever be his own man? Er, dinosaur.


Backstage interview with The Don Callis Family.

Alex Marvez is with Konosuke Takeshita, Sammy Guevara and Don Callis himself, and says that the wrestling world is buzzing with what we saw on Rampage. Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho are united, along with Kota Ibushi, and challenged the DCF for WrestleDream! Don says it makes him sick just thinking about Omega and Jericho on the same side, when Don is the one who put them both on the map! And now, they’re name dropping Kota Ibushi. Ibushi is a wrestling legend, but his weakness is Kenny Omega. Kenny Omega loves Kota Ibushi, they are closer than brothers, and that kind of emotion makes them weak! They always have been!

Don isn’t worried. As great as Omega, Jericho and Ibushi are, Don has Sammy Guevara, who left Jericho laying. Don has Konosuke, “The Alpha,” who earned that name when he beat Omega twice in one week! And Don has another family member. This man beat Jericho and Omega in the course of two months, and that is WILL OSPRAEY! So you want WrestleDream to become a nightmare? Don doesn’t think so. Omega, Ibushi & Jericho will face the strongest Don Callis Family ever! See you in Seattle, where they finish it once and for all!!


Backstage interview with Christian & Luchasaurus.

Collision returns as Tony Schiavone congratulates the NEW TNT Champion. Christian says yes, every legitimate title defense has solidified him as the UNDISPUTED TNT Champion! He dedicates this victory to Nick Wayne’s mom, and Nick Wayne’s late father, who must’ve been cheering Christian on from Heaven. But anyway, Christian is finally finished with Darby once and for all, bring on the next challenger! Actually, Tony Khan just announced that Christian’s first defense will be at WrestleDream in Seattle. And it will be a classic match-up. They’ve gone back and forth, so this will be BEST 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS!

Christian is furious! He storms off to find Tony Khan, but will it matter? Will Darby finally have justice against Captain Charisma?


Hook & Rob Van Dam VS Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker w/ Jake Hager & Anna Jay!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil just beat the former Jericho Appreciation Society members last night in a Mixed Six Tag with help from his new friends. But now he joins forces with an old friend of his dad’s! Will Hook and RVD prove they’re a one of a kind team? Or will they underestimate the sports… enner-tay-ners?

The teams sort out and fans are fired up for RVD already. RVD lets Hook start against Daddy Magic, though, and fans still rally behind Hook. They tie up, Menard arm-drags, and Menard gloats. Fans boo but Hook resets with Menard. They tie up, Hook waistlocks, hammerlocks, and he trips Menard to a facelock. Menard fights up but Hook spins and hammerlocks and headlocks and hits the takeover! Hook then goes for an arm, but Menard fights against the top wristlock. Menard knees low, tags Parker, and Parker whips. Hook holds ropes, ELBOWS Parker back, but Anna trips Hook up! Parker CLOBBERS Hook and stomps away!

Fans boo, the ref reprimands, but Parker tags Menard. They double whip Hook to a corner, Parker whips so Menard can whip him into the corner but Hook dodges! Hook then wrenches Menard, and points to the corner! Fans fire up as Hook tags in RVD! RVD takes the handoff, he wrenches to a wristlock and fans rally up. RVD brings Menard around, arm-drags him away, but then Parker CLOBBERS RVD! Fans boo but Menard throws hands. Menard whips, RVD rolls off Menard’s back and body scissor roll-up! TWO, but RVD blocks a kick to WHEEL KICK! Parker kicks RVD, but RVD blocks the buckle bump and KICKS back!

RVD goes up to JUMP KICK! “You Still Got It!” RVD watches the ex-JAS regroup, but they get away before he can dive! So he just gets everyone to join in on a “ROB! VAN! DAM!” Hager throws a fit for his team, but Collision goes picture in picture.

RVD waits as Menard & Parker talk strategy. Menard slowly returns, talks some trash, and he seems to call out Hook. RVD obliges and tags Hook in. Hook and Menard circle, then Menard kicks low! Menard whips Hook into Parker’s boot! The ref reprimands but Menard stomps Hook around. Menard soaks up the cheers and jeers, and then distracts the ref so Parker can CHOKE Hook! RVD protests but Parker tags in to throw hands. Parker JABS, then whips Hook to DROPKICK him down! Cover, TWO! Hook is still in this while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns as Parker tags Menard. They double whip Hook but Hook holds ropes to KICK Menard and TOSS Parker! Menard rushes in but Hook TOSSES him out! Hook hurries but Parker intercepts with a tackle! Fans boo but Parker drags Hook away from RVD. Hook wrenches free, clinches, and hits the EXPLODER! Fans fire up while Hook and Parker are down! Hook crawls, Anna shouts at Parker to move, but Menard crawls in as fast as he can. Hot tag to RVD! RVD rallies on Daddy Magic! Then he SUPERKICKS Cool Hand Ange! WHEEL KICK for Menard! RVD runs, for the ROLLING THUNDER!

RVD covers but Menard kicks it apart! Fans boo Menard but he brings RVD up. Menard scoops, RVD slips free and blocks a kick to step over and WHEEL KICK! Fans fire up as RVD goes to a corner. But then Anna distracts the ref and Hager has a chair! RVD dodges to KICK the chair into Hager! Hook gets in Anna’s face, Parker storms up on him, but Hook turns it around, REDRUM!! RVD goes up, takes aim, FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH!! Cover, #HookVanDam wins!

Winners: Hook & Rob Van Dam, by pinfall

Michigan’s own comes back home and wins big! Will RVD have one more title run in him? Will Hook’s newest run not be stopped?


Eddie Kingston speaks.

He has two titles to defend now, with the ROH World Championship in one hand and the NJPW Strong Openweight Championship in the other. And he knows WrestleDream is AEW’s love letter to the late, great Antonio Inoki. The Mad King wants to face the man who best embodies Inoki’s vision today, and that is Katsuyori Shibata. This won’t be just about the NJPW Openweight but also the ROH World title. He wants Shibata to bring his all because that’s what Eddie is gonna do. But then, will Eddie remain the two belt king? Or will we soon see The Wrestler become a TRIPLE CHAMPION?


The Dark Order speaks.

John Silver says, “This world has gotten outta control.” Alex Reynolds says it’s just too much, too fast, and it needs to stop. Evil Uno asks us who we will turn to “when it’s all done?” Happy music plays over destruction and desolation. “You need structure. You need rules. You need order. The Dark Order! Because The Dark Order is good! And we’re here for you!” Uno sneaks in some Italian, “But not forever.” Will you trust these creepy grins? Will you #JoinDarkOrder?


The Kingdom speaks.

Matt Taven says “Neck health is important!” Best Friends are a bunch of liars! When Trent hurt his neck, was Chuck by his bedside? NO! And now these Melvins wanna take away what The Kingdom earned, what they deserve, their shot at the ROH World Tag Team titles!? They will show these dorks what people who don’t celebrate neck health deserve! And Mike Bennett says Chuckie T got some of that last night. A punch to the wiener and a piledriver! So next Saturday is piledrivers in support of neck health! And then they will see how close Best Friends really are, how strong they really are. They aren’t stronger than The Kingdom, and they damn sure ain’t #NeckStrong!


Julia Hart w/ Brody King VS Kiera Hogan!

The Lady of the House was truly Hartless against Skye Blue last night, bringing out The Babe with The Power. However, Willow Nightingale was then attacked backstage to keep her from competing tonight! So Skye’s other friend is stepping up! Will the Hottest Flame burn this witch down? Or will the House always win?

The bell rings and Kiera rushes up to ROCK Julia! And again and again! The fans rally up as Kiera whips Julia into ropes, runs side to side and HIP ATTACKS! Kiera bumps Julia off buckles, waistlocks, but Julia bucks the O’Conner. Julia runs up to throw Kiera down by her hair! Fans rally, Julia stands on Kiera’s hair and pulls the arms! The ref reprimands, Julia steps off at 4 to then stomp Kiera down! Brody says to stay on her so Julia CLUBS away on Kiera! Julia kicks Kiera around, drags her up and SMACKS her off the mat! Julia stomps Kiera again, drags her back up, then snap suplexes! Julia grins as she then rains down fists!

The ref reprimands about closed fists so Julia lets off. To then let off with one more! Julia paces around Kiera, brings her up, but Kiera throws hands! Kiera ROCKS Julia, BOOTS her, then ROUNDHOUSES! Julia wobbles, Kiera runs in, but Julia spins Kiera for an STO! Standing MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Kiera is still in this but Julia is still on her with a chinlock! Kiera endures, fans rally up, and Kiera fights up. Kiera throws body shots, blocks a punch to give a punch, then ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Julia! And again! Kiera runs in to SHOTGUN Kiera into the corner! Fans fire up as Kiera goes corner to corner, but Julia sends her into buckles!

Julia drags Kiera up to throw her by her hair again. Brody says keep on Kiera, so Julia whips her to a corner. BACK ELBOW! Julia grins as she snapmares, and then KICKS Kiera in the back! Julia drags Kiera up, SMACKS her off the mat, and then runs, to BLINDSIDER! Julia says the House always wins. HARTLESS STRETCH!! Kiera taps, Julia wins!

Winner: Julia Hart, by submission

A 25-0 win streak for The Lady of the House, but she isn’t satisfied! She puts Kiera back into HARTLESS!! But here comes Skye Blue! She was on the other end of this so she’s making the save now! But again, Julia hides behind Brody. But then Brody moves and Julia BLACK MISTS Skye!! Julia strikes again! Brody asks, “Do you see this? Do you see this!? This will not end! This violence will not end! 25 matches, over two dozen bodies stacked, and this will not end until we get to the one. The last loss! KRIS STATLANDER! Next Sunday, Seattle, Washington, WrestleDream, put your TBS title on the line. Or the body count continues to rise.”

But Julia wants Kris to understand: The House ALWAYS wins. Will the Galaxy’s Greatest look to end the streak? Or will the TBS Championship fade to black?


The Righteous speak.

Death walks. You dig what they’re saying? Ol’ Vincent & Dutch are pure, are divine, and are the corpse of decency nailed to a post of greed and moral decay, draped under the shadow of purity. But now they expose MJF & Adam Cole, and purify the lie that is “Better Than You, Baybay.” You dig what they’re sayin’, man?


Jay White w/ Bullet Club Gold VS Andrade El Idolo!

The Switchblade and his Bang Bang Gang called out The Face of Latino Wrestling, saying White’s reputation is more widespread than Andrade’s. Will White make Andrade famous for losing to him? Or will Andrade become famous for beating Jay White?

The bell rings and the fans already taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” White says this is Andrade’s moment in the spotlight! They tie up, go around, and Andrade powers White to the corner. The ref counts, Andrade lets off slowly, but White SLAPS him! White uses ropes as a defense and the ref backs Andrade off. White and Andrade reset, Juice is liking this, but then Andrade headlocks. Fans rally up, White endures the grind, and White powers up and powers out. Andrade runs White down, and then goes to run, but Juice is in the way! The ref reprimands but White knees Andrade! White headlocks and hits the takeover.

Juice and the Gunns shout “ARMAS ARIBA!” Andrade endures, fights up, and he powers out. White slides out, says to heck with it, but Andrade slides! White dodges, Andrade dodges back, and Andrade CHOPS White down! White sputters but Andrade puts him in the ring. Andrade climbs, leaps, CROSSBODY! Andrade bounces off the cover, but he drags White back up. BCG are worried as Andrade snap suplexes! Uno AMigo! Fans fire up as Andrade hits Dos Amigos! Andrade gets White up again, gives us some Latino Heat, then hits THREE- NO, White silps free and pulls hair! The ref rephrimands, they’re in the corners and Andrade HEADBUTTS!

White BOOTS back, goes up, but Andrade triangle jump DROPKICKS White to the floor! BCG hurry to check on their captain but Andrade goes out after him. Andrade puts White in, covers, ONE! Austin rubs it in, that was UNO! Andrade seethes but he drags White up. Andrade whips White to the corner, but White dodges the splash to clothesline and DDT! Cover, TWO! Andrade stays in this but White stays focused. White goes to the corner to CHOP! White RAMS into Andrade again and again, the ref counts but White lets off at 4. To then CHOP! White whips corner to corner but Andrade blocks to BOOT!

Andrade goes up but White CHOPS again! White fireman’s carries, to TKO HOTSHOT! And then White BLASTS Andrade down! Andrade hits railing, BCG swarm like a pack of hyenas, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Colten does a victory lap for White and White goes out to fetch Andrade. White brings Andrade around to SMACK him off the apron, then he pulls hair to APRON GOURD BUSTER! Andrade falls to the floor, Juice taunts him with a dance, and White flexes as he refreshes the ring count. White and the BCG all flex and pose, then White puts Andrade in the ring. Cover, TWO! Another cover, TWO! A third cover, TWO!! White is frustrated but the count is fair. White stalks Andrade to the ropes to CHOKE him and fishhook his face! The ref counts, White lets off, and Andrade CHOPS! And BOOTS! White blocks a boot to DRAGON SCREW!

White strums the air guitar to let Tanahashi know he’s thinking of him. Then he GROUND DRAGON SCREWS the same leg! Andrade writhes to the ropes but White wraps the bad leg around them! The ref reprimands, White lets off, and then White drags Andrade up to HALF HATCH into the corner! Then White gets the legs to high stack, TWO! Andrade is still in this and White is frustrated. White drags Andrade into a chinlock and he grinds Andrade down. But Andrade fights up as Collision returns to single picture! The fans rally, White grinds Andrade down again, but Andrade still endures.

Fans rally more as Andrade keeps fighting. White shakes his head but Andrade stands to throw body shots! White throws Andrade down by his hair! The ref reprimands but White storms back up, into a cradle! TWO!! White kicks the bad leg! Andrade falls and clutches that knee, but White sits him up. White CHOPS! Andrade sputters and White talks trash, but Andrade pie faces him! Andrade eggs White on so White CHOPS him! Andrade still eggs White on so White CHOPS! White finger guns, but Andrade dodges, DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Fans fire up as both men are down! The standing count starts and both men stir.

BCG coach White, White drags Andrade up, and “This is Awesome!” as they go forearm for forearm! Andrade CHOPS, White CHOPS! Andrade CHOPS, White wobbles and staggers, but White comes back to CHOP! Fans rally as the CHOPS just keep going! White kicks, Andrade blocks to DRAGON SCREW! And then DRAGON SCREW again! Andrade runs, ducks ‘n ‘dodges to CLOBBER White! Fans fire up but the BCG worries for White. Andrade kips up! El Idolo has plenty of gas left in the tank and he has White in a corner. Andrade goes corner to corner, for CIEN- NO, the BCG drags White out to safety. So Andrade goes up to ARIHARA MOONSAULT!!

Fans are thunderous as Andrade takes out the whole Bang Bang Gang! Andrade puts White in, climbs up again, and then MOONSAULTS, lands on his feet, DOUBLE MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!!

Cover, TWO!??! White survives and fans are loving this match all over again!

White and Andrade stir, then White crawls to a corner. Andrade stands, fires up and runs, CIEN SHADOWS!! Then the hammerlock, LA SOMBRA DDT!!! Cover, Juice helps White with the ROPEBREAK! Fans boo as BCG gets away with one! Andrade is beside himself, but he drags White around by a leg. Fans “WOO~!” as Andrade steps through! FIGURE FOUR! White endures, the “WOO~” echoes out, but White CLUBS away at Andrade’s leg! Andrade pushes up to the FIGURE EIGHT! The Ass Boys distract the ref so Juice can CLOBBER Andrade with his Cowboy of the  Month award!! White is free of the leglock!

White drags Andrade’s deadweight up to hit BLADERUNNER!!! Cover, White wins!

Winner: Jay White, by pinfall

Andrade being alone was doomed from the start with Juice and the Gunns backing White up! And then they all taunt Andrade while he’s down! Andrade takes his first AEW loss, but will he back for venganza? (Vengeance in Espanol.)


Ortiz speaks.

“All In, Wembley Stadium. Did to me what you’ve been doing to me the last 14 years of my life. You used me, then you walked away. Sure did have a lot to say on social media. Sure did have a lot to say on TV. And then when I confronted you… Called you over and looked you in your eyes, you walked away. Tough keyboard warrior. You did what you always do: You ran from your problems. Guess what? You’re not gonna be able to run much longer.” Will there be a clash of the proud ‘n’ powerful on the horizon?


Shane Taylor Promotions speaks.

Shane Taylor himself says that on paper, Shane Taylor VS Keith Lee may not seem like much of a rivalry. But Keith knows better, doesn’t he? They came into ROH at the same time, established “The Pretty Boy Killers” and DOMINATED the tag division. Lee Moriarty says to tell ’em! Shane says that from ANS to War Machine to The Briscoes, they took ’em all out! But then Keith went to go work for “the other billionaire,” while Shane stayed and became an ROH legend! The world got to see Keith be limitless, but now it is Shane’s time on the biggest stage! And the only thing standing in the way IS Keith.

Shane says if it is to feed his family, then he will put Keith in the GROUND! Before Shane takes everything Keith has, Keith must step in the ring with The Best Damn Technical Wrestler, Lee Moriarty. Will #TAIGASTYLE bring Keith down to size? Or will Moriarty #BaskInHisGlory?


AEW World Tag Team Championships: FTR VS The Workhorsemen!

The open challenge of opportunities continues as Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler give JD Drake & Anthony Henry their shot. But with WrestleDream and a rematch with Aussie Open on the horizon, will the Top Guys get caught off guard? Or will FTR be bringing the gold to Seattle?

Speaking of, Aussie Open is here! Kyle Fletcher & Mark Davis are dressed to the nines and they join commentary to watch this one with their own eyes. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who are the true Top Guys!

The teams sort out and Cash starts against Henry. They circle, feel things out, and Cash denies Henry a leg takedown. Henry comes back, gets around to a waistlock, but Cash fights up to facelock.

Aussie Open says okay, then it’s on! WrestleDream will mark the anniversary of the instant classic back at Royal Quest! Mark Davis gets a mic to say, “AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!” The fans reply “OI OI OI!” Davis says congrats, and keep those belts bright. Because FTR is in the fight of their lives! Fletcher knows Aussie Open says it a lot, but FTR once said themselves that Aussie Open is the best tag team in the world today! And they’ve heard the complaints, “What happened to the Aussie Open that took FTR to the limit in a five star classic?” Well, they admit they haven’t lived up tot he hype, but that is why they challenged FTR to this match!

Aussie Open needs to prove to to the people, they need to prove it to FTR, and they need to prove it to themselves that they ARE everything they say they are! Dax has a mic to say yeah, okay. Aussie Open were sacrificial lambs to Max and his best friend. They were sacrificial lambs to Chris Jericho and his best friend. But what Dax wants from them, what he is begging them on his hands and knees, he wants the biggest, baddest bastards in the world, because on October 1st, WrestleDream, Aussie Open faces THE BEST TAG TEAM IN HISTORY! Fans cheer that! And Dax says if Aussie Open don’t bring that, then don’t even show up. #TopGuysOut.


Backstage interview with CJ Perry.

Lexi Nair is with Miro’s hot and flexible wife, and says this is the first time we’ve seen her since she surprised everyone at All In London, which was also the first time anyone in wrestling has seen her in two years. So the question is, why now? CJ says that The Redeemer, who she loves so much, has lost his way. She wanted to help him be champion again. But unfortunately, he’s rather preoccupied with the past and… temptations. But then in steps Miro! He says his only temptation is her. And her temptation is this: the lights, the cameras, the fame. It changes you. CJ says she loves the hustle, the puzzle, the chase, and helping those she loves! It makes her come alive!

Miro says his righteous path was to save “them.” And if CJ stays, that means he’d have to… To what? Save her? What were their wedding vows again? Well, they each have to do what they each have to do. They will each walk their own paths. But if there is any love in Miro’s heart for CJ, then please, do not lay a hand on any of her future clients she’s going to manage here. Okay? Can he promise that? Miro leaves without giving an answer. Will pro-wrestling come between husband and wife?

Starks flails, grabs the chain and he throws hands! But Bryan grabs that chain, to wrap it around Starks!! Starks freaks out as he relives All Out!! Starks is purple, and he passes out!

Fans fire up, Starks checks his face but also has blood coming from his eyebrow.

Bryan backs off, brings down his kneepad, and he wraps the steel chain around his knee! Fans are loving “A E DUB!” for giving them this main event, and Bryan stares Starks up. Bryan runs in to FULL METAL KNEE!!! Starks is down, and the count begins! Bryan crawls away at 5 of 10, drags himself up at 8, and the count hits TEN! Bryan wins again!!

Winner: Bryan Danielson

Starks wanted revenge, but he only got another vicious fight and crushing defeat. Big Bill and Wheeler Yuta come out to check on their respective allies. Bill helps Starks stand, as does Yuta with Bryan. Yuta and Bill get at each other, but Starks has them all stand down. Is this Starks’ way of showing Bryan respect for the absolute war they just went through? And where does Starks go from here?

It’s an all new QTV.

Harley Cameron asks if they wanna see her impersonation of a hot dog. Uh, sure. Harley just goes rigid. Huh. What does Joe Blow think? Uh- Johnny TV springs on the scene and says they must’ve had a great time in Montreal. Wait, Solo wasn’t invited to that. Oh, uh, that sucks. But let’s rrrroll the footage! Harley says this is awkward, but that only works when she asks for it. “RRRRRRROLL~ the footage, gov’nah!” Footage rolls of QT Marshall defending his title in Lutte Academie, the French Canadian wrestling indie. QT pounded that guy’s ass like a turkey! Oh, hey, nice sunglasses, Solo! Remember the handshake? Hecc yeah!

They do the shake, blast off, and then QT texts! He needs a tag partner for next week! Someone with fresh breath, long hair, and has known for a long time. Someone he can trust not matter what. Solo says that’s him! It has to be! No, bro, that’s Johnny! Gotta go, see you next week. Awkward… But will the combined powers of QT & Johnny be unstoppable?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

And he says that after Dynamite, this guy has a lot to answer for. Though, we already knew he was a snake in the grass. Ladies and gentlemen… Don Callis. Fans boo as the patriarch of the Don Callis Family walks out with “The Alpha,” Konosuke Takeshita and goes to the ring. Schiavone has to admit, Callis is many times a step ahead, and he is eating up how the fans all around the world just HATE him! Schiavone says Callis deserves all of it. Callis takes the mic and fans boo as he says just wants to say… “A few weeks ago, the wrestling world was abuzz! The wrestsling world was abuzz at my so-called pursuit of Chris Jericho.

“I didn’t end up with Jericho, but I ended up with the man I really wanted, the newest member of the Don Callis Family… SAMMY! GUEVARAAA~!” The fallen Spanish God makes his way out now, dressed to impress. Fans boo more as Sammy joins his “family” in the ring. Sammy soaks up all the heat, but Schiavone asks, “You actually call this man family?” Sammy says he can’t hear Schiavone, but that might be from all the booing. Sammy tells Don, “Believe it or not, I hated you. I hated you for a long time.

“I hated you almost as much as they hated you. And it’s because this whole time, I thought you were trying to rip apart my family. But really, you were just trying to show me I never really had one. Until now!” They hug and fans boo more. Sammy says why did he betray Jericho on Wednesday? The reason is because for the past four years, he has been holding Sammy back! Jericho has taken Sammy for granted, just like all the fans have! Fans boo more but Sammy says yeah, yeah, yeah. Last year, it was “F YOU SAMMY!” Earlier this year, it was “LET’S GO, SAMMY!” Well Sammy is done with such fickleness! He doesn’t need the fans!

Sammy is done trying to earn the fans’ love. He has a hot, hot wife, a beautiful baby girl and a fat bank account! Fans boo Sammy but Sammy says Jericho is DEAD to him, and never wants to see him again! But wait! Judas plays and fans fire up! Jericho is here, and he rushes the DCF! Jericho DECKS Konosuke, ROCKS Sammy, fires off on Konosuke again to TOSS him out, then he ROCKS Sammy! Sammy scurries away but Callis CLUBS Jericho! Jericho scowls at Callis and fans say Callis F’d up now! But Konosuke returns to SMACK Jericho with a chair! And again! And again! And again!!

Fans boo but then Sammy has Konosuke stop. Because Sammy takes the chair to SMACK Jericho now! And again! And again!! Sammy unleashes that resentment and rage! Konosuke drags Jericho up, Sammy helps, and Callis tells Jericho this is what he gets! Callis throws punches, but hurts his own hand! So he brings out the SCREWDRIVER!! Fans freak out, but here comes KENNY OMEGA!! The Cleaner is back, with a metal pipe!! Omega runs the DCF off and fans are thunderous! Jericho staggers up to his feet and he bumps into Kenny. Both men are on guard, but upon seeing who it is, Jericho cools off.

Omega drops the pipe, and he nods before leaving. Will Omega and Jericho see that the enemy of their enemy is truly a friend in the fight against the treacherous, disgusting and conniving Don Callis?


Rampage returns as Alex Marvez finds Kenny Omega.

Marvez says Omega and Jericho, in the same ring together, working together against Don Callis! Kenny stomps Marvez there. Do they really think Kenny did any of that for Jericho? That he cares about Jericho? This is bigger than Jericho! This is about Kenny taking care of Callis. But then Jericho walks over. Jericho tells Kenny that he says this once: he appreciates Kenny making that save, but he also knows the reason it happened. Just as Kenny was saying, this is not about them becoming friends. This entire company was based on the Omega VS Jericho rivalry. But now, something that Callis never thought would happen: Jericho and Omega are UNITED in taking Callis out!

The match Callis put together in Tokyo, it is now a nightmare come to life. And as far as Sammy goes, he is the real Judas. But so Jericho suggests they team up for real and take out the Don Callis Family, at WrestleDream! Omega tells Callis that he stabbed Omega in the back, betrayed his best friend in Jericho, and threatened someone Kenny loves in Kota Ibushi. That scar on Callis’ head that he blames on Omega, after they’re done with him, Callis will look like Freddy Krueger. WrestleDream, October 1st, will become a Wrestle Nightmare. DCF VS Jericho, Omega and Ibushi! Who you got?! They’ll be waiting.


ROH World Tag Team Championship #1 Contenders Fatal 4 Way match: The Hardy Boyz VS The Righteous VS Best Friends VS The Kingdom!

All teams with history in ROH, all teams with history with the tag titles, but only one team gets to go on to their WrestleDream against MJF & Adam Cole. Will Matt & Jeff DELETE the competition? Will Dutch & Vincent bring about an Autumn Sunset? Will Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta get a shot at finally becoming champions? Or will Mike Bennett & Matt Taven go after the men that (emotionally) hurt Roderick Strong?

In this Fatal 4 Way, only two teams are legal at a time, so the ref calls for them to sort things out. But then tensions build between old rivals in Best Friends and The Kingdom, as well as new rivals in The Hardys and The Righteous. The ref can sense where this is going, and he rings the bell right as the brawl begins! Taven has Trent, Mike has Chuck, Dutch has Matt (Hardy) and Vinnie has Jeff! Then The Kingdom and Righteous put Best Friends and Hardys up top, fire off more hands with them, but then Best Friends and Hardys knock The Righteous and Kingdom down! Four corner V1! QUADRUPLE AX HANDLES!

Mike Santana speaks.

“Now it’s time for you to understand what this all truly means to me. Going away for this injury was the easy part. Handling what goes on in here (the heart) and up here (the mind) was the hard part. That was the true test. I spent 30 DAYS staring out a treatment center window, wondering just where my life went. And I realized I’ve survived way too damn much to just piss it all away. And here I am, for the world to see. And I’m hungrier than ever. Everybody is food. You get in between me and my money, I will put you down. You get in between me and feeding my daughter, I put you down.

“And realize this: Whether it’s here, whether it’s anywhere, I’m gonna get mine. If you don’t like it, you fight me or fire me! But you have two options: Either get down, or lay down.” There is a fire raging inside Mike Santana, will he use it to blaze a trail to the top of the mountain?


AEW World Trios Championships: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS The Dark Order!

While everyone loves the diss tracks and the scissor fingers and the bright colors, it would seem Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds & John Silver would have us believe Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass are the bad guys in all this. But if they’re the heroes of this story, does that mean the Dark Order will prevail? Or will they fail to end the Scissoring World Tour?

But speaking of a diss track…! “Acclaimed on the mic, and it sounds so pretty. Damn it feels good to be in New York City! Oh my God, the Dark Order! The number one cure for a sleep disorder! The group is smaller than I remember. Now we gotta fight against the three worst members! And we beat you down proper. Have all y’all laid up like Aaron Rodgers.” Ouch… But Bowens takes the mic to shout, “NEW YOOORK CITAAAAY~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! But will those scissors cut down The Dark Order before they ever rebuild?

Winners: The Hung Bucks, by pinfall (NEW ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions)

The Elite wins big, but Hangman goes right back to glaring at Swerve! Pyro goes off to celebrate The Hung Bucks becoming TWO-TIME Six Man Tag Team Champions, having ended one of the most dominant trios in either AEW or ROH! But this doesn’t change what is coming. Hangman and Swerve will put pen to paper on Wednesday to make their WrestleDream match official. Will Swerve’s House have something waiting for the Cowboy in Colorado?

My Thoughts:

A great two hours for Rampage here, though I am not going to advocate for this being a regular thing. Great opening tag from Darby & Sting VS Christian & Luchasaurus, and I like that Nick Wayne costs Christian this match. Darby taking on Christian and Luchasaurus in that TNT Championship Triple Threat which will really is a handicap match could also be a way to hand the feud off to where Christian has matches with Nick Wayne over this “Your dad is dead, I will be a better dad” gimmick. Now I don’t know if that means Darby wins the title or not, but it feels more likely he loses since Christian and Luchasaurus are going to work together.

Great Mixed Six but of course Kris & OrangeHook win. This was the first outing of Cassidy & Hook as a team, so they weren’t going to lose, and certainly not to the former Jericho Appreciation Society. And while Hook is FTW Champion, this does feel like they’ll eventually make it to some tag title match so that Cassidy can add to his resume. Great Fatal 4 Tag, but The Righteous winning was a big surprise to me. I thought WrestleDream would be when they pull the trigger on The Kingdom VS MJF & Cole and that pushes things towards a brochacho break-up. Seems not, they might be saving that for Full Gear in LA. And Kingdom might bide their time with a feud with Best Friends.

Good promo from Callis and Sammy, and really good stuff with Jericho going after them all, and then Kenny making the save. I was a little confused as to where Kota Ibushi was supposed to come into this until Jericho made the challenge of a Six Man Tag a la All In London. But at the same time, it prompts the Don Callis Family to grow, as it should, and maybe Callis keeps it a surprise until WrestleDream. Really good promo from Mike Santana before he of course beat Bronson, and I really like that Ortiz appeared. People have been wondering how much shoot and how much work we’re seeing in their social media exchanges, but I would think this hints at it being more a worked shoot, playing off the tension that has perhaps already been resolved.

Really good AEW Trios title match, with Dark Order looking good in their new gear, white with purple highlights. But I figured The Acclaimed would retain, they’re not losing on TV. Good match from Skye VS Julia, and Julia winning was only a slight surprise given all the momentum Skye’s been building. But Willow making the save was good stuff, and I really do think we need someone to be feuding with Willow over her winning the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Should’ve been doing that the whole time, but whether it’s AEW or ROH, Tony Khan’s got the book and we’ve all talked about those issues.

And a great main event for the ROH World Six Man titles, but with how fast and furious the Hung Bucks were going at the start of the match, I really thought they were losing. Swerve showed up, he could’ve easily screwed Hung Bucks over, but he was putting it on Hangman to mess things up and that actually cost The Mogul Embassy. I was talking this whole time about how that kinda buries ROH, and unless The Hung Bucks show up on like next week’s ROH episode, I still hold to that. Adam Cole & MJF haven’t been on ROH TV even though they’re the tag champs, so it just makes ROH seem like an afterthought despite them constantly using the various ROH champions on AEW programming. And if The Hung Bucks beat the near unbeatable Embassy, who is even going to beat the Bucks without cheating so, so hard?

My Score: 8.9/10
