PLAY BY PLAY

The Inner Circle “hurt some people,” and that included AEW World Champion, Jon Moxley!

After The Maniac took the title off Chris Jericho, Jericho and his boys made sure to rough him up last week. A beating before the tag match main event, a beating after the main event, and a POWERBOMB off the stageWill the Death Rider ride again and get his revenge?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Hangman Page backstage.

With Kenny Omega still out of action because of a busted hand, the Cowboy must find a substitute against Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara. But before he can even answers, the Young Bucks interrupt. Matt Jackson wants to know why they’re even over here. Hangman says he needs someone he can trust, so that’s NOT why Matt and Nick are here. He wouldn’t team with those two if they were the last people on Earth. Well, not Matt. Maybe Nick. Is Nick still good after the ass whooping he got? Nah, Hangman keeps his partner a secret. It isn’t Nick, right? That aside, is the Elite still (not) fine?

Christopher Daniels addresses the AEW Faithful.

In a blatant parody of the Dark Order’s videos, the Fallen Angel asks, “Are you tired of being told you’re a loser? Have you been waiting for a higher power to reveal themselves?” Daniels introduces himself, and is sure you remember him from such videos as Being the Elite and Chris Daniels Almost Dies. But today, he has a very important message. “Screw the Dark Order!” When AEW started, the Dark Order had momentum as an undefeated team poised for success. But that ended when they faced Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky, aka SCU. So the Dark Order created videos that targeted the lost and frustrated, and created this character known as “The Exalted One, a shadowy figure whose favor people would strive to gain as they followed the orders of Stu and Uno.”

But the only ones who saw any success were Stu and Uno. All that time spent trying to fool you into thinking someone like Daniels was the Exalted One all along was a lie. A smokescreen used to hide the fact that Uno and Stu have no easy answers, and that there is NO Exalted One. Now surely, you’re thinking, “Christopher Daniels, how can you prove these bold accusations that you’re making?” Daniels challenges Uno and Stu to singles matches wherever and whenever they choose. It could be AEW Dynamite, AEW Dark, a PPV, or even a random parking lot. But when Daniels beats them and no Exalted One comes to the rescue, Daniels will have proven Uno and Stu are just “sad, desperate men.” #ScrewTheDarkOrder, #DarkOrderSucks.

 

Six Man Tag: Jurassic Express VS MJF, The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny & Wardlow!

Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus and Marko Stunt have been on a roll in the New Year, but is that about to change? Will Maxwell Jacob Friedman and his mercenaries start their own successful trios record?

The trios sort out and Marko steps to MJF. MJF laughs but fans are strongly behind Marko. MJF takes his time taking off his Letterman jacket to again show off the “I Pinned Cody” shirt.

Saurus sends MJF into his mercs! Fans fire up as Saurus crawls, hot tag to  no one as the mercs drag Marko and JB down! Butcher SLAMS Mark on the apron!!

Saurus runs at MJF but gets caught into a kneebar! MJF cranks on the bad leg but Saurus gets the ropebreak. The ref counts and MJF lets go, but MJF grabs the leg and brings Saurus around. MJF hooks Saurus for a standing toehold as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Aubrey reprimands the mercs for helping MJF get leverage in the deathlock. She counts but they won’t let go, so she kicks their arms! They drop MJF on the mat! Fans cheer Aubrey’s moxie while MJF tags in Blade. Blade goes after Saurus but Saurus CHOPS him down! Fans rally up but Blade KICKS Saurus back to the corner. Marko is still in bad shape while Saurus fights out of enemy territory. Blade avoids the Tail Whip but not the return! MJF tags in and he just flops on Saurus’ legs. Saurus powers up and drags MJF and blade with him as he walks towards the corner! Fans are thunderous but Blade and MJF trip him up. They roll him, but he breaks through the clotheslines, hot tag to Jungle Boy!

Jungle Boy dodges MJF and Blade to shotgun dropkick Butcher! JB boots MJF then rolling elbows Blade! He throws Blade aside to SUPERKICK MJF! Corner uppercut for Blade, enziguri for Butcher, and then JB whips. Blade reverses but JB comes back with a LARIAT! MJF runs in but JB spins him around to KICK out the leg! Imploding senton and springboard QUEBRADA onto Blade! Jungle Boy has cleared the ring, but he builds speed, only to run into Butcher’s grip! Marko returns and jumps onto Butcher’s back!

But MJF and Blade catch him, so JB DIVES! Down go MJF and Blade!

Marko and JB get back in and go together. Luchasaurus FLIES out onto Butcher, Blade and MJF! Fans lose their minds and even Saurus’ boys can’t believe that one. Saurus drags Blade up and into the ring, then adds MJF. Saurus tags in and JB brings MJF around. JB feeds MJF to Saurus, and Saurus has both MJF and Blade in choke grips. DOUBLE DINO CHOKE SLAMS!! Standing moonsault! Cover, Marko runs to intercept Butcher, but Butcher THROWS him at JB, and they fall onto the fall!! Saurus stares down with Butcher and they RAM like, well, rams! And again! And again! They both choke grip, break free, throw forearm after forearm, but Butcher gets the edge, Until he gets the knee and TAIL WHIP! But Butcher still LARIATS!

Everyone is down and Bunny is freaking out! Marko tags in and MJF is down in a corner! Marko runs in to fire off stomps! It’s a Marko mudhole! The ref backs him off, and Marko apologizes, before he slides under! Marko stomps MJF more!! JB pulls Marko off but Marko shoves him away. Marko tells JB to go up and he drags MJF over. Bunny distracts everyone else, and Blade shoves JB down! Wardlow blindsides Luchasaurus! MJF grabs Marko, and reels him into the FUJIWARA! Marko taps, MJF and team win!!

Winners: MJF, The Butcher & The Blade, by submission

The Salt of the Earth armbar gets the better of a heated Marko, and MJF mockingly shouts, “I’m going to Disney World!” But will he and his henchmen really be heading to the top of the food chain in AEW?

 

Darby Allin has another message.

He slams his skateboard on a car hood with “WIN” and a heart spray painted on it. He wears a cardboard mask of Chris Jericho’s bloody face. Then he wears a cardboard mask of Sammy’s face while being zipped up in a body bag by Jericho-cardboard mask. “Sammy” is dragged by a truck labeled, “RIP Sammy.” The message is pretty clear: Darby still wants to end the Spanish God. When and where will Darby get his chance?

 

Tony Schiavone introduces Britt Baker.

The Dentist returns to AEW Dynamite and is happy to see Tony here. It’s not like there’s much else going on in Utah. She did bring him his favorite coffee. Britt would’ve brought beer but you’d have to cross state lines for that. But anyway, boring coffee and boring Utah, but Britt’s here to liven things up. What’s not hard to find is sugar, because she’s seeing a lot of “high BMI” and poor oral health. Britt is here to help as a dentist! Because remember, she’s a dentist.

Tony guides things towards the announcement Britt was going to make. Britt wants to remind us all, especially these “similar looking faces” in this “giant family reunion,” that you can pursue anything and everything you have a passion for. You can get that promotion, become that construction worker, or janitor, or plumber, or dental assistant. We can all achieve greatness! Britt is here as our role model and will lead by example. Tony has to be honest, she isn’t really making a lot of friends here. Britt ignores that to thank the fans for their “warm, standing ovations.” Fans chant “You Suck,” actually. But out comes Big Swole! Fans cheer for her!

Swole encourages “Brittney” to keep talking, because that’s what she’s good at. Britt acts like no one watches the product and no one would hear Britt run her mouth. Why is she hiding behind Tony? He don’t even like her! Tony doesn’t want to be in the middle of this, even though he is. Britt asks why Swole is out here when she’s not even relevant. The most relevant thing about Swole is her boyfriend. Uh, you mean, husband, BAYBAY! Britt gets mad now, and SPLASHES Swole with the coffee!! And she runs away. Swole shrugs that off but is ready to make the Dentist need some dental work! Will Swole break Baker when they meet again?

 

Six Man Tag: Joey Janela & Private Party VS Death Triangle!

The Bad Boy stood up for Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy when PAC, Pentagon and Fenix attacked on AEW Dark Denver. Will the Bastard and Cero Miedo kill the party here tonight?

AEW returns to single picture as Private Party makes their entrance, followed by Death Triangle. The tensions run high but the referee keeps the peace.

AEW’s Lexi Nair interviews Dustin Rhodes backstage.

The Natural is now geared up to compete, but he isn’t scheduled. What does it mean? It means Dustin is pissed off! The Inner Circle has run roughshod long enough! We all saw what they did to Nick Jackson, so now someone is stepping up. Hangman, Dustin wants to be your partner whether you like it or not! Because they’re gonna kick some Inner Circle ass and do some #CowboyShit!! Will Hangman accept this scenario?

 

AEW is picture in picture and back at the ring.

Orange Cassidy and Best Friends have the ring while Death Triangle takes their leave. With nothing else to do, Trent, Chuckie and Cassidy give Salt Lake City a GROUP HUG! And a thumbs up, too.Cassidy even takes a selfie with a cosplayer before heading out.

 

The #SearchForSpears has some early auditions.

Suge D, “Something Like a Player” says he is the first and the last impression Tully Blanchard and the Chair Man need. But WhatCulture’s own Simon Miller throws his hat in the ring to give us the best tag team anyone’s ever seen! Holden Stefe wants Spears and Tully to mold and train him into the perfect partner! And the man simply known as Jo Jo says he is the Perfect 5, because he is 5′ 4″ of pure greatness. Justyn Michael not only claims he’s the right choice, but he could beat Hangman, beat Kenny Omega and doesn’t even need Spears’ help. Did Justyn miss the point of this? Mr. Bricksterr says he has the star power and the ability to connect with people instantly. Anthony Bowens says he is THE Five Tool Player! And Slade Rikers is just crazy. But do any of these men measure up to #PERFECT10N?

 

AEW Dynamite in Rochester promises big things!

First, after the encounter from tonight, Death Triangle’s Lucha Brothers will go 2v2 against Best Friends! Will the Bastard go after the Sloth on the outside at the same time? Plus, the Dark Order promises that The Exalted One WILL arrive in AEW! Are they going to disprove Daniels before even taking his singles challenge? And with Blood & Guts on the horizon, a Six Man Tag of the Inner Circle VS The Elite will not only be a sampler, it will be for advantage going into the Blood & Guts match! “What advantage?” you ask.

AEW explains the rules of Blood & Guts!

The double ring, double cage match starts with two men who fight for a five minute round. After that, the advantage team sends a participant, then the other team, and this repeats every two minutes until all 10 men are in the cage! Then and only then does the Blood & Guts match officially begin, or rather end. And it ends ONLY when any single member of a team taps out to a submission, or verbally surrenders to the other team. No pinfalls, no count outs, escaping does not change a thing! Who will survive this sadistic innovation?

 

AEW shares Jim Ross’ exclusive sit-down interview with Jon Moxley.

JR congratulates Moxley on winning the world championship, but has to admit that after what went down in Denver, he wasn’t sure when he’d see Moxley again. Moxley is not physically cleared to compete this week. Moxley is bent out of shape and pissed off. That’s about as far as he’ll elaborate, but let’s face it. This “game” between Moxley and Jericho’s Inner Circle has only ever been about the title. Who is winning? Moxley, naturally. But he’s in a 5v1 situation, so he doesn’t stand a chance much longer. Moxley says he means what he says, says what he means, and he speaks the truth. Moxley told us all that if Jericho wants the belt, if Hager wants the belt, all they have to do is ask.

By the way, Hager, nice touch with the very distinct powerbomb. But maybe “step into the batter’s box, bitch.” JR is sure it will be inevitable that match happens. Hager hit Moxley harder than anyone ever did, and that’s saying something given Moxley’s career. But in the end, he’s just another guy in AEW. JR brings up the signature success story, the coming event in Newark, aka Blood & Guts. AEW is blood ‘n’ guts, pro-wrestling is blood ‘n’ guts, Moxley is blood ‘n’ guts. Moxley vows to make it to Dynamite 3/25/2020. The Inner Circle tried to get rid of Moxley, end his career. They almost did. But now they have a new task with the Elite in the cage. That puts Moxley in their blind spot. If Jericho is as smart as he thinks he is, he’ll be scared.

 

Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara w/ The Inner Circle VS Hangman Page & ???

Le Champion and the Spanish God took out Nick Jackson with help from Big Hurt, but that didn’t scare off the Cowboy. In fact, it only served to motivate The Natural into joining up. But Hangman did not confirm nor deny if he accepted the offer to give us a rematch from Dynamite 12/9/19. Hangman makes his entrance, AEW World Tag Team Championship strapped around his waist. The moment of truth comes, and Hangman’s partner is in fact Dustin Rhodes! It seems Hangman didn’t expect this, and perhaps was preferring to go solo. But Dustin says he has Hangman’s back in this. Will things be very different than back in December?

The teams sort out and Hangman starts against Jericho. Hangman taunts Jericho about having a belt while Y2J doesn’t, and the two approach. Only for Jericho to immediately tag out to Sammy. Sammy and Jericho hug and Sammy rushes Hangman but Hangman CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Hangman whips but Sammy reverses. Things speed up as Sammy jumps and flips and jumps again, but Hangman still CHOPS Sammy down! Hangman tags Dustin and they double whip Sammy to the corner. Hangman hits a corner clothesline, Dustin adds his own clothesline, then Dustin feeds Sammy to Hangman’s second clothesline! Dustin covers, TWO!

Dustin puts Sammy in an open corner to CHOP! Then he whips him corner to corner hard! Tag to Hangman but Sammy throws him out. Jericho tags in as the Inner Circle surrounds Hangman. Hangman gets on the apron, but Jericho hits him with a triangle dropkick! The ref tells the Inner Circle to stay back but Jericho mocks Hangman by taking someone’s beer and drinking it. “I’m Hangman Page~! I’m a cowboy~! Slurp!” Jericho goes around to Hangman but Hangman PUNCHES the beer out of Jericho’s mouth! And he takes the beer for his own to chug. But Hangman turns around into Sammy’s Penalty Kick! Sammy flexes then puts Hangman in for Jericho to throw forearms on.

Jericho CHOPS Hangman against ropes then throws elbows. He CHOPS again then tags Sammy. They double whip but Hangman breaks the line and runs Sammy over! Hangman snap suplexes Jericho onto Sammy! Tag to Dustin and Dustin rallies on Sammy with clotheslines! Dustin whips, Sammy reverses, but Dustin stops himself to Rhodes Uppercut! And atomic drop to a bulldog! Dustin even ROCKS Jericho before getting Sammy with a spinning powerslam! Dustin has Sammy in a corner and climbs up to rain down punches! He gets 4 before he has to DECK Jericho! Sammy jumps to DOUBLE STOMP Dustin down! Cover, TWO! Sammy soaks up the heat as AEW goes picture in picture.

Sammy distracts the ref while Jericho has Dustin on the outside and he whips him into barriers! Jericho and Sammy distract the ref while the rest of the Inner Circle stomp Dustin down. Jericho fetches Dustin and puts him in the ring for Sammy to cover, TWO! Sammy keeps on Dustin and drags him to the corner. Tag to Jericho and Jericho drags Dustin up to throw forearms. Jericho whips and clotheslines Dustin down! Cocky cover, TWO! Jericho rams knees into Dustin and has him in the corner. Sammy holds Dustin’s arms back so Jericho can throw hands. Tag to Sammy and he RAMS into Dustin’s ribs! Hangman is getting mad but Dustin is throwing hands! Dustin reaches for Hangman but Sammy rams him into the open corner.

Sammy fireman’s carries and does squats with Dustin, to then hit a Samoan Drop! Cover, but Dustin makes it his own ghost pin! TWO and Sammy clobbers Dustin down! AEW returns to single picture as Sammy tags Jericho. Jericho and Sammy drag Dustin up to double whip to ropes and double elbow down! Sammy shows off his spin, and Jericho poses with him. The ref reprimands them but Jericho soaks up the heat. Jericho slaps Dustin around but Dustin throws hands! Dustin runs but into an elbow! LIONSAULT gets knees! Both men are down but fans rally up. Dustin and Jericho crawl, hot tags to Hangman and Sammy!

Hangman rallies on Sammy with lariats and a whip, but Sammy reverses. Hangman ducks and BOOTS Sammy down! Fans are thunderous for “COWBOY SHIT!” as Hangman whips Sammy, but Sammy reverses to ROCK Hangman! Jericho grabs Hangman to run him at buckles, but Hangman counters with a triangle jump LARIAT! Sammy runs in but Hangman dodges to scoop, and FALL AWAY SLAM! Hangman kips up to PLANCHA onto Jericho! And then SLIDING LARIAT on Sammy! Cover, TWO!! Sammy survives but Hangman drags him up. Hangman spins Sammy but gets the dragon whip! Jericho tags in and CHOPS Hangman. And again! Jericho whips but Hangman reverses, only for Jericho to hold ropes. Jericho puts Hangman on the apron but Hangman punches back!

Ortiz gets up but Hangman DECKS him! Hangman goes to the corner with Dustin, and they both LEAP!! Dustin crossbodies Sammy and Jericho while Hangman MOONSAULTS Hager and PNP! Dustin clotheslines himself and Sammy out of the ring as fans are thunderous again! Hangman aims at Jericho, slingshot, but into a takedown! Jericho wants and gets the WALLS! Dustin runs in to CLUB Jericho down! Sammy tags in and heads up top, SHOOTING STAR! Hangman moves, Sammy lands on his feet but gets another BOOT! Hangman wants it, but Jericho trips him off the apron!

The ref reprimands Jericho but Jericho throws Hangman at the apron. Hangman rebounds off the ropes to DECK Jericho! Dustin has Sammy for a DESTROYER!! Sammy flounders into a BUCK SHOT!! Cover, Hangman and Dustin win!!

Winners: Dustin Rhodes & Hangman Page, by pinfall

Redemption from December, but the Inner Circle attacks! Fans boo as Hager, Ortiz and Santana help Jericho beat down Dustin and Hangman. Dustin flops out of the ring and Hangman is all alone. With Cody and Matt with Nick at the hospital, who is there to help? KENNY OMEGA! Again, that bad hand won’t stop him from fighting!! Omega uses the cast on Hager but he also gets outnumbered! A shot to the bad arm leaves Omega vulnerable to JUDAS EFFECT! Hangman flounders up but gets knocked down. Wait, Cody is here!? Cody throws hands on the Inner Circle and stomps a mudhole in Jericho! But Hager SPINE BUSTERS him!

The Inner Circle throws Cody out and Ortiz has Cody on the ramp. “WE’RE THE BEST!” Snap suplex to the ramp! Hager goes after Omega’s bad hand with fury, and then Jericho has him go after Hangman. Hager hauls Hangman up the ramp and Ortiz points out to a spot much like they’ve used on victims before. The Inner Circle drag Hangman up just like they did Moxley, but MATT JACKSON makes the save!! Matt SUPERKICKS Hager! And throws Sammy onto him! He DOUBLE SPEARS Proud ‘n’ Powerful!! Matt’s fury boils over, and he flips Hangman off in return for last week.

But then Jericho SMASHES Matt with the chair! And Hangman, too! Chair shots to the head take down the last of the Elite! Jericho even use the chair to pin Matt down while he takes a seat! The Inner Circle give middle fingers to The Elite and to the world! With Omega’s hand busted, Nick hospitalized, and now Cody, Matt and Hangman brutalized, does the Inner Circle already have a major advantage going into Blood & Guts?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A great episode of Dynamite that sets up a lot to AEW’s newest special episode. Not to be mean about Blood & Guts, but well all know it’s a modified WarGames match. I do like that it’s only about submissions and quitting, though. That makes it even more implicitly brutal on paper than a normal WarGames match, and 5V5 makes it even more insane. And it’s great that they’re using it for the Inner Circle VS Elite match that I’ve been wanting to see since AEW Dynamite got going. The brutality in the build tonight was great, too. Nick just being under the garage door like that was perfectly shocking, and the Inner Circle devastated The Elite tonight. I feel like that with Hangman and Matt having problems, it’s all leading to a great moment where those two work together to help The Elite win.

It’s awesome that we got to see Lance Archer arrive and confirmed as Jake the Snake’s client. Archer going after Cody will make for a great story going towards Double or Nothing, regardless if Elite wins or loses Blood & Guts. There’s a lot of great development towards those rumored AEW Trios Championships, too. Jurassic Express VS MJF and henchmen was really good, and Death Triangle’s debut was incredible! I’m thinking Lucha Bros beat Best Friends so that the trio stays strong, and I would love if there was a Trios Division tournament to stretch things to Double or Nothing, where the finals come down to Death Triangle VS Best Friends & Orange Cassidy. That way, AEW can do no wrong with their inaugural world trios champs, as far as the fans go.

The women’s division also had great stuff tonight. The tag match was really good, and it was very clever for Bea to turn on Nyla after they won. AEW should book outside the box by letting Bea stick to her Heel behavior when fighting Nyla, because it isn’t going to matter, fans sounded really behind her against Nyla. Bea will be Face by default but chances are she won’t win against Nyla. Britt had a pretty good promo, but Swole was great with that BAYBAY. That will be a pretty good feud for them both while they wait on the title. Again, AEW can try booking outside the box and have Britt go up against Nyla at some point, but then fans probably go with Nyla. Swole’s going on a good path to become a big name and a great win over Heels like Britt and Nyla.

My Score: 9.4/10

Hangman Page is here!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

The Young Bucks arrive backstage.

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

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

 

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

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

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

Eddie goes up the corner and he FLYING SHOULDER TACKLES Claudio down! The fans fire up while Claudio scrambles up, and Eddie just stares him down. Eddie tags Dax, Claudio tags Bryan.

The fans are thunderous as it all spills out of the ring! Claudio and Eddie are on one end, Cash and Moxley on another, and Dax stomps away on Bryan in a corner!

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

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

Cash endures, throws hands, but Moxley digs his boot into the knee. Cash falls back, it’s a cover again, ONE! Dax storms in to STOMP Moxley! The fans fire up and Moxley is up in a huff.

Dax endures the leglock, his shoulders are down, TWO! Dax sits up in time, but just like with Cash, Moxley puts on the pressure. Dax falls back for another cover, TWO! Dax grabs at Moxley’s nose but the ref reprimands. Dax lets go and works to turn the hold over! Moxley resists one direction, but Dax goes the other way! Dax turns it over! The fans fire up as Moxley endures, and Moxley turns it back over. Dax reaches out to the ROPEBREAK! Moxley lets go quickly, then tries again, but Dax BOOTS Moxley into a POST! Moxley staggers, hot tag to Bryan! Bryan runs up to get Dax by an arm, and even grinds in an elbow!

Bryan drags Dax back over, tags in Claudio and the BCC mugs Dax again. Claudio clamps on a chinlock while Dynamite returns to single picture again. Dax endures, the fans rally up, and Dax fights up. Dax throws body shots, then ROCKS Claudio, but Claudio keeps Dax from Cash! Tag to Moxley and the BCC mug Dax more. Claudio picks Dax up for Moxley to run, HART ATTACK!

BCC wins!

Winners: Blackpool Combat Club, by submission

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

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

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

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

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Eddie Kingston.

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

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

Backstage interview with The Bang Bang Scissor Gang.

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

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

 

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

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

The bell rings and Skye runs up to fire off on Kris! Kris hits back, puts Skye in a corner, and then TOSSES her across the way! The fans fire up while Skye flounders.

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

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

Winner: Skye Blue, by pinfall

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

 

The Young Bucks are continuing their hunt of Sting.

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

 

Chris Jericho VS Atlantis Jr. w/ Atlantis Sr!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Chris Jericho, by forfeit

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Revolution!

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

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

 

The Young Bucks make their way to the ring.

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

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.9/10
