PLAY BY PLAY

AEW opens with Cody in the ring.

“I have never thought of my world as small before.” But recent world events put things in perspective. It has also clarified for Cody how important the service they provide is. Cody sees the irony in what he asks. Cody is about to ask some of the best athletes in the world to discard their petty differences and stand together. This is March 18, 2020, we as human beings need to stand together. For many, that means at a distance. No crowd is assembled at Daily’s Place as Cody says “We have to be informed. We have to be held responsible by health and science. But there is a profound difference in that versus living in a prison of fear.” Cody refuses to live in fear, because that is not living. Hopefully everyone watching this around the world feels the same way.

Cody now addresses Matt Jackson because he knows Matt is watching. Second to Tony Khan, Matt is probably the one most responsible for AEW existing. With brother Nick, Matt is a tag team specialist and a master of the craft. But that doesn’t mean anything is owed to Matt. If anything, that means Matt must work even harder. Matt’s anger towards Hangman Page is misplaced. Cody doesn’t need that and Matt doesn’t want that. Matt is the older brother, and he needs to carry Nick’s heart into this match so that they can win Blood & Guts. And speaking of Hangman, Cody says he is tired of singing Hangman’s well-deserved praises, such as his junior heavyweight agility and full heavyweight strength.

Cody admits he picked Hangman for first AEW World Champion, and yet was wrong. Chris Jericho was first, and Jericho even beat Cody. But Cody wants Hangman to get over himself. Hangman doesn’t want to be “that one guy in the Elite” anymore? Then don’t! Be the difference maker in The Elite! Be the reason The Elite wins Blood & Guts! But then lastly, the most unique friendship in wrestling, Kenny Omega. Cleaner and American Nightmare haven’t always gotten along, but that’s fine. They could argue who is 1A and 1B until they’re blue in the face and they both end up second place to someone else. They don’t want to be bridesmaids to another but that’s fine! This isn’t a wedding! This is blood, guts and violence! It will take years off of careers, and the Elite needs them both.

But Cody needs the real Omega. Cody needs the man who stood in front of 499 others and declared HE is the best! We need the Best Bout Machine! “In short, I need The Elite to be elite.” Matt Jackson and Kenny Omega walk out to the ring now and join Cody between the ropes. Omega takes the mic to say that normally it’s about speaking to an arena full of people, but now it’s just friends talking to friends. Omega also admits he and Cody haven’t always seen eye to eye. There were times they were at each other’s throats. Yet here we are. The world is falling apart, everything they built could fall apart at a moment’s notice. Will Dynamite even be allowed to run next week?

But if it’s up to Omega, Omega wants to go out the way they came in: as The Elite. Matt takes the mic and says he loves the call to action. And he agrees with Omega, too. But look at the ring. It’s just the three of them. We saw what The Inner Circle did to Nick, he isn’t even cleared to fly! Nick and therefore The Young Bucks as a duo are out indefinitely. And again, it’s just the three of them. Where is Hangman? A good question, even for Omega, his tag team partner.

But the other half of the AEW World Tag Team Champions finally appears. Matt admits things have been “strange” between them all. No one is saying this can be fixed in one night or even in a few weeks. But Matt asks as one man to another, and the team is asking him: Will Hangman stand with The Elite? Hangman sips his beer, then gives a raise of the glass and a nod. They’ll take that as a yes as Hangman heads to the back.

Omega takes the mic back, admits he’s used to speaking to crowds but knows he’s speaking directly to the people watching at home. “It’s hard to feel your energy, but we know you’re out there.” AEW wants the very best for everyone, because all they can give is their best. The world goes on, everyone needs positivity right now, so all AEW can do is give the best they can give right here and now. “So goddammit, hit the lights, hit the pyro, and let’s start DYNAMITE!”

MJF made it to AEW Dynamite.

Tony Schiavone asks what he’s here for. Wow, what a hard hitting question! But MJF says it is because he doesn’t have to. MJF saw the winner’s purse for tonight’s special episode, but it’s not enough for him. MJF is resting his undefeated body to let the “under card talent” get their TV time. He’ll be an audience of one while making real money. Right, Spears? Wait, Shawn Spears is here? And are they gambling on the matches? What did you say, Tony? You better watch your mouth! Does Tony realize the weight of the accusation he just made?! HOW DARE YOU!! But also, does he want in or what? Tony cues Brandi Rhodes as ring announcer before possibly asking about the odds.

 

The Lucha Brothers VS Best Friends w/ Orange Cassidy!

The Death Triangle is incomplete without The Bastard, but it can’t be helped given global circumstances. Will Pentagon Jr. and Rey Fenix still hold their own against Trent and Chuckie T 2v2?

To keep things fair and square, Cassidy goes to commentary to sit with Excalibur, Tazz and good ol’ JR. Y’know, whatever. The teams sort out and MJF shouts in support of Fenix and Pentagon. He’s got “mucho dinero” riding on this one. Fenix eggs Trent on and that is the two we start with. Trent and Fenix circle and tie up. They go around as MJF chants obnoxiously loud, and Trent puts Fenix in the corner. The ref counts and Trent backs off. Fenix and Trent circle and tie up again. They go around and Fenix puts Trent in the corner. The ref has Fenix give a break, but then Fenix tries a mule kick. Trent blocks and CHOPS! Fenix CHOPS back!

Trent and Fenix start throwing big forearms! Fenix back kicks, front kicks and ROCKS Trent with a right. The brothers shout “CERO MIEDO!” and Fenix goes after Trent with uppercuts. Fenix CHOPS then speeds things up. Trent dodges to hit a point-blank Meteora! Trent drags Fenix up to snapmare then KICK him in the back! Tag to Chuck Taylor and Best Friends double whip. They double shoulder Fenix down then double gun at Pentagon. Chuckie T drags Fenix up and MJF mocks Chuckie’s physique. It seems MJF, Shawn Spears and company are joined by Jake the Snake and his client, Lance “Murderhawk” Archer.

Back in the ring, Chuckie hits a big back suplex then covers, TWO! Chuckie clubs Fenix down and tags in Trent. Cassidy is either very relaxed or napping on commentary now. Best Friends double suplex Fenix up and hold him up, and then bring him down hard! Cover, TWO! Trent keeps his cool as Colt Cabana, Sonny Kiss and others are cheering on the other side. Trent brings Fenix up to whip and run over with a back elbow! Fenix flounders but Trent keeps on him with stomps. Tag to Chuckie T and he drags Fenix up. Chuckie whips Fenix to dropkick Fenix down hard! Cover, TWO!! Chuckie drags Fenix away from Pentagon and back to tag Trent.

Trent climbs up and Chuckie holds Fenix in place for the falling double ax handles. Trent brings Fenix up but Fenix fights back with body shots, a stomp, an eye poke and a CHOP! Fenix CHOPS and CHOPS and Question Mark kicks Trent down! He clubs and whips Trent but Trent reverses. Pentagon tags in, Fenix dodges Trent to hit Chuckie, and Pentagon SUPERKICKS Trent! Fenix mule kicks Trent, then “Uno! Dos! Tres!” DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! Pentagon covers, TWO! Pentagon argues with the ref but the count is the count. MJF is on the Cero Miedo bandwagon as Pentagon KICKS Trent’s leg! Pentagon stalks Trent to ropes to KICK him down!

Pentagon drags Trent up while MJF and Spears share a bottle of wine. The ref reprimands Fenix as he gets a cheap shot in, but Pentagon snapmares Trent, to BITE his ear! The ref reprimand again but MJF points out the five count. Pentagon tags Fenix and the brothers mug Trent. They double whip and hit a body shot, kick and leg sweep! The Lucha Brothers combine for a wheelbarrow spinning splash! Fenix dropkicks Chuckie down HARD! Orange Cassidy perks up and stares down at Fenix, but Trent slips out to clobber Pentagon in the distraction! But Fenix FLIES out onto Trent! Chuckie comes around to LARIAT Fenix! All four men are down in front of Cabana, SCU and Joey Janela while AEW goes picture in picture.

Pentagon gets up but Chuckie attacks him at the railing. Chuckie punches and CHOPS Pentagon then throws him into railing around the way. The ref reprimands him but Chuckie just waves to the cameras. Best Friends mug Pentagon but Fenix comes over to attack. Chuckie hits back and then throws Fenix into a post. Chuck throws Fenix into the apron while Trent clobbers Pentagon. Chuckie bites Fenix’s mask as strange payback for Pentagon biting Trent. But speaking of, Pentagon reverses a whip to send Trent HARD into railing, moving it into the front row! It’s actually very fortunate there are no fans here tonight.

Chuckie T finally puts Fenix in but he realizes what happened to Trent. Cabana wants to check on Trent but Pentagon scares him off. Pentagon throws Trent into a post while Fenix fights Chuckie T back. Fenix throws Chuckie T out, keeps the count fresh, then ROUNDHOUSES Chuckie down! Fenix taunts SCU as he clubs Chuckie down. Pentagon puts Trent in the ring and Fenix joins him. Fenix wraps Trent up in a chinlock but Trent endures. Cabana and friends rally up for Trent but Fenix traps his arms with his legs, then cranks Trent’s foot in a toehold. Trent refuses to quit so Fenix JUMPS for a BIG leg drop! Cover, TWO!

AEW returns to single picture as Trent and Fenix CHOP each other. Fenix kicks Trent’s leg then tags in Pentagon. Pentagon school boys and SUPERKICKS Trent down! Cover, TWO! Pentagon still argues the count but Cassidy went back to taking a nap. Trent throws body shots and forearms on Pentagon, but Pentagon KICKS Trent in the leg! Pentagon dares Trent to hit back and Trent throws another big forearm. Pentagon KICKS Trent’s leg again, then fish hooks him at the ropes. The ref reprimands but Pentagon whips Trent away. Trent blocks the pump handle to arm-drag Pentagon away. Pentagon runs in but only gets buckles, and then Trent’s TORNADO DDT!

Both men crawl as the other wrestlers rally up. Hot tags to Chuckie and Fenix! The Kentucky Gentleman rallies with lariats, then catches Fenix’s leap into a BACKBREAKER! Pentagon gets in and KICKS Chuck’s leg. Pentagon whips but Chuckie comes back with a KNEE! Chuckie scoops Fenix for the LONG DART CUTTER! Best Friends go corner to corner and want to hug, but given current circumstances, keep it to elbow bumps. Pentagon and Fenix DOUBLE SUPERKICK the Best Friends! Pentagon goes out to fetch Chuckie and brings him to the concrete! But Cassidy gets off commentary to “hurry” over! Fenix and Pentagon see him coming, and dare him to do something. Chuckie shoves them both off the stage!

Trent brings Fenix and Pentagon up and lines them up, for Cassidy’s NO HANDS SENTON! Trent puts Pentagon back in and Chuckie gives him AWFUL WAFFLE!! Cover, TWO!! Pentagon still lives but Chuckie tags in Trent. Best Friends bring Pentagon up and around, but Fenix SUPERKICKS Trent into a DESTROYER! Fenix keeps Chuck stuck up top while Pentagon has the cover, TWO!! Trent survives so Fenix head sup top to club Chuckie. Chuckie clubs back and the ref is busy with them, so Pentagon LOW BLOWS Trent! Pentagon enziguris Chuckie then sets Trent up! DOUBLE STOMP PACKAGE DRIVER! Cover, Lucha Brothers win!

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

MJF wins, too! Big money from Spears, that is. But with this huge win, will Lucha Brothers get back in the AEW World Tag title scene?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Best Friends on stage.

Chuck and Trent join The Sloth, and says Death Triangle is making a big impact in AEW already. Chuckie says they’re “a bunch of chumps.” They wanna kick Trent in the dick while the ref’s back is turned? Maybe next time there doesn’t need to be a ref, or even a ring! How about a Street Fight?! Like, in the actual street! Or no, a parking lot! A Parking Lot Brawl for next week’s Blood & Guts Dynamite!! Will the Death Triangle have the balls to accept that challenge?

 

Fatal 4 Way: Hikaru Shida VS Riho VS Kris Statlander VS Penelope Ford!

The Superbad Girl joins the contender conversation with the Stardom Samurai, the Wrestling Idol and the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien because she got a Superbad upset victory over Riho on AEW Dark! Will she shock the world again when she beats three of the best all at once? Or will another woman earn a second shot at the Native Beast?

AEW goes picture in picture while the entrances are made. It’s hard to tell who MJF and Spears are putting their money on this way, but they’ll be audible again soon enough. AEW returns to single picture with the bell, and Penelope goes right at Riho! It seems nothing is settled between these two, and both Shida and Kris give them room. Penelope rakes Riho’s eyes! And then throws her out of the ring! So now she’s alone with Shida and Kris, and they both kick Penelope low! Shida and Kris double suplex but Penelope fights out to fight back! Penelope throws forearms but Shida blocks and Kris ROCKS Penelope with a right! Kris and Shida both run but Kip trips them both! The ref sees the Superbad Boy drag them both out, but MJF defends Kip’s innocence.

Kris ROCKS Kip then Shida DECKS him! MJF is mad at the ref for that one, but Penelope gets on the apron. Penelope LEAPS but both Kris and Shida get clear. They double kick Penelope again, then bring her over. But Riho’s up top and LEAPS onto them all! All four women are down and it sounds like Spears’s money is on Riho. Riho gets up and puts Penelope in the ring. Kip saves his Superbad Girl but Riho is attacked by Kris and Shida. Shida and Kris double whip but Riho handsprings through the double clothesline! Riho dropkicks Shida down then dodges Kris to tilt-o-whirl. But Kris blocks that for a BACKBREAKER! MJF says Kris still sucks.

Kris dead lifts Riho and puts her in the middle rope. Shida comes over and Kris wants to be her weapon. Shida suplexes Kris into Riho! But then Shida rolls up Kris, TWO! Shida drags Riho up top but Kris goes after Shida! Kris has Shdia up but Shida fights out of the bomb. Shida waistlocks, Kris bucks her off, and Kris elbows Shida away. Kris runs but Shida dodges to eye poke! And inside cradle, TWO! Kris LARIATS Shdia down! Shida bails out but Penelope FLIES back in, with a Superbad and super sloppy huricanrana. Kris still tumbles away but Riho leaps to give Kris a huricanrana! And then Shida missile dropkicks Kris out!

Shida goes after Riho but Riho blocks the suplex. Penelope joins in but Shida fights her off. Shida has both women for a double! But Penelope and Riho fight it off to double suplex Shida instead! Riho and Penelope glare at each other, and start pushing. The forearms start flying and Riho gets an edge! Riho runs and dropkicks Kip! SCU laughs at Kip but Penelope attacks Riho. Penelope puts Riho in the corner then handsprings in, for a big back elbow! Penelope fireman’s carries Rho but Riho fights it off! Riho sunset flips but Kip helps Penelope stay up! The ref gets Kip to let go and Penelope jumps, but Riho gets clear of the knee drop! Riho runs to use Penelope as a step stool, POETRY IN MOTION for Kip!

Riho goes back after Penelope with the full nelson. Penelope resists and fights free. Shida returns but Penelope moves, Shida KNEES Riho! Penelope BOOTS Shida but covers Riho, only for Kris to break the pin! Shida enziguris Kris then runs, into a ROUNDHOUSE! Kris has Shida up, GOURD BUSTER! Riho wheelbarrows but Kris blocks to an Electric Chair! Kris SLAMS Riho down onto Shida! Penelope throws body shots on Kris and runs, springboards back and POISON-RANAS Kris!! Everyone loses their minds over that, but Shida reels Penelope in. Penelope fights free, handsprings but into a dropkick! Shida drags Penelope up, FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! Shida runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, Shdia wins!!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall

The #1 contender is STILL the #1 contender! Will the Samurai of Stardom have that rematch with Nyla Rose in the near future?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Colt Cabana at ringside.

Like a lot of the other AEW talent here tonight, Cabana is watching all the action. Cabana is already 2-0 and is “scouting” the competition. Cabana has great seats, too. That was a great women’s match and the AEW Women’s Division is awesome. Penelope Ford may have lost but she was great. She’d be much better if she didn’t have her scheming boyfriend nearby. Kip hears this and takes offense. Kip asks Cabana if he wants to go. They start shoving, and Cabana SLAPS Kip! Kip is aghast as he storms off with Penelope. Will Boom Boom be 3-0 after taking on the Superbad Boy?

 

AEW shares Tony Schiavone’s interview with Jon Moxley.

Earlier today, as the AEW World Champion was heading for his Ford GT, Tony asks about Moxley not being medically cleared given what the Inner Circle did to him. Moxley says being on the “Do Not Enter List” is stupid. He goes where he wants to go, when he wants to. What does “medically cleared” even mean to a guy who has never been cleared? But Moxley is going to keep himself out of trouble and go for a ride to blow off some steam. But Moxley also promises that wherever the Inner Circle goes, Moxley will be there waiting. He will be in their blind spot. When Blood & Guts happens, Moxley won’t miss the party. “Not for the world.”

 

Jurassic Express VS The Butcher & The Blade!

Similar to Death Triangle being without PAC, Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus are without Marko Stunt but MJF’s mercenaries are without Allie Bunny. But that just means it’ll be a fair 2v2. Will JB and Saurus be able to make big moves against the sadistic Braxton Sutter and Andy Williams? Especially with MJF giving them big money motivations tonight…

The teams sort out and Jungle Boy Jack Perry starts against The Blade. Blade and JB tie up and Blade pulls hair. He puts JB in the corner but lets up to stomp! MJF mocks JB as “looks like Tarzan but wrestles like Jane!” The ref reprimands Blade but he CHOPS JB! Blade whips JB but JB reverses to arm-drag and roll over to a ghost pin! TWO, and JB handsprings up. JB headlock but Blade powers out. Things speed up and JB springboards to arm-drag Blade away! JB dodges and ducks but gets the kitchen sink knee! Blade seethes as he stalks JB. Blade drags JB up and reels him in but jB fights with body shots. JB rolls Blade up and powers him tot he corner. Saurus tags in and CHOPS Blade!

Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy give kick after kick to Blade, then combine with a wheelbarrow for JB to hit a swinging complete shot! Saurus covers, TWO! Luchasaurus brings Blade up to wrench but Blade throws forearms. Saurus knees back and puts Blade in the corner. JB tags in and whips Blade to Saurus’s BOOT! JB adds the imploding senton but Blade bails out. Blade, Butcher and bank roller regroup while JB builds speed, but he sees they’re all gathered together. So JB slingshots out! The mercs catch the plancha to SWING JB into railing! Someone’s beer spills and MJF rubs it in. Saurus hurries over to reinforce JB but the ref tells everyone to get this back in the ring.

Blade drags JB up and brings him away for both him and Butcher to snake eyes on the apron! Blade puts JB back in and wrenches. Butcher tags in and they double headbutt JB down. Butcher stomps a mudhole in but the ref counts. The mercenary backs off to stand JB up for a CHOP! Butcher goes after JB at the ropes and CHOPS again! He won’t let up as he bumps JB off buckles. MJF mocks JB’s pain while Butcher scrapes JB’s face on rope! The ref reprimands but Blade tags in. JB starts giving CHOPS back, but Butcher’s CHOP knocks him over. Blade drags JB up to whip and lariat him down! Cover, TWO! Blade brings JB up to tag Butcher in, for a leg drop sidewalk slam! AEW goes picture in picture as Butcher covers, TWO!

Butcher keeps on JB with a whip into the open corner and hard! He drags JB up but JB fights back with body shots. Butcher knees JB down then whips him into the corner. Tag to Blade and the mercs mug JB with CHOPS! Blade snapmares JB to then clamp on a chinlock. He digs his knee into JB but JB endures. JB fights his way up and out, then runs to sunset flip! Cover, TWO! Blade LARIATS JB down! Tag to Butcher and the mercs drag JB up to double whip again. They double shoulder JB down then Butcher drops a big knee! Butcher goes after JB’s legs with stomps, then drags JB up to CHOP again! JB throws haymakers back, then fires up with chops and kicks and punches! Butcher headbutts JB down and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns as Blade has JB in the corner. Blade rakes JB’s eyes then stomps a mudhole in. He snapmares as Joey Janela does the Tarzan yell, not that JB has ever done one of his own. Blade pulls JB around by his hair and clubs him down. Blade whips JB and tilt-o-whirls to a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Blade looms over JB and drags him up for a back suplex. JB lands on his feet to wheelbarrow but Blade shoves him away. JB comes back with a LARIAT! Both men are down and the other wrestlers rally! JB crawls but Blade elbow drops him back down! Blade drags JB away and throws him out. Butcher goes after JB and RAMS him into the apron!

Butcher puts JB in the ring for Blade to cover, TWO! Blade grows annoyed and drags him up to whip into the corner. JB elbows Blade away then fights Butcher off. JB hops up but Butcher anchors JB’s leg. Blade runs over but JB keeps fighting them off! JB sends Blade down then boots Butcher, before leaping over Blade to tag in Lucahasaurus! MJF freaks out as Saurus LARIATS Blade and BOOTS Butcher! Luchasaurus kicks and kicks and KICKS Blade down! Then DINO-SAULTS Butcher down! Luchasaurus aims at Blade before he somersault SPIKE-RANAS Blade! And into a SPINNING BUZZSAW! Saurus roars as he fireman’s carries Blade, “YOU! ARE! EXTINCT!” DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!! Cover, but Butcher breaks it!

JB returns and rocks Butcher with forearms! Butcher shoves, pops JB WAY up, but JB gets Blade for a sunset flip into ropes! Both JB and Blade tumble out hard, and now Luchasaurus meets Butcherzilla! They throw forearms back and forth, and at the same time! Butcher ROCKS and CHOPS Saurus then clubs away over and over. The ref reprimands, he’s not even the legal man!

Winners: Jurassic Express, by pinfall

Another big win for a boy and his dinosaur! Will Jurassic Express hop on the fast track to the AEW World Tag Team Championships?

 

The Dark Order is here!

Christopher Daniels and Evil Uno are yet to have their 1v1 match but we’ve been waiting for weeks on the promise of The Exalted One! Uno and Stu Grayson walk out to the ring, a mic in Uno’s hand. “Now I hope that the AEW production team is as smart as I believe they are, and they focus on my eyes so that I may talk directly to my people.” To all the members of The Dark Order around the world, The Exalted One is nigh! And when he arrives, he shall breathe new life into the Dark Order. Brothers Stu, Alex Reynolds and John Silver have all done Uno’s bidding to prepare for this “wonderful night.” All eyes shall open and see what Uno already sees. Uno has promised the arrival of the Exalted One, and he never lies, because Uno cares about us.

Together, the Dark Order shall be one! “We Are One!” The Exalted One is near! He’s near! He, is- Daniels interrupts! He and Frankie Kazarian go to ringside to tell Uno to “Please, in the name of all that is holy,” stop running your mouths! They’re going on three months straight! Uno goes on and on with these lies! Daniels is sick of it! Daniels says Uno promised to make everyone’s lives better. Uno didn’t make Reynolds’s life better! Uno didn’t make John Silver’s life better! The Dark Order hasn’t made the lives “of any of these jackasses who were your masks” any better! All the Dark Order does is waste time, “and we’re sick of it!” Because the biggest lie of all is the Exalted One’s existence! It’s just Uno and Grayson!

But wait! What is this music? “I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am The Exalted One of the Dark Order. In a very short time, you will be up to speed as to who I am.” But first, the new rule of the Dark Order goes like this: “We do what we want, when we want.” If the Exalted One wants something, he takes it. To put it a way the stupid ones can understand, “If we come and knock on your door, you open that door and you let the Dark Order in.” Because if you don’t, the Exalted One will kick the door down to lead his people through it. If you still don’t get that, the Exalted One will show his face. It’s Luke Harp- er, uh, Brodie Lee!!

To make it more personal, “Mr. Christopher Daniels,” you thought you were safe. But the word is out! Everyone is NOT safe! All of Daniels’ jokes, all his games, did he think he’d get away with it? Lee tells Daniels that he is not the first “out of touch old man” who didn’t believe in him. But Lee makes sure Daniels is the last. So Lee formally introduces himself to us. He is Brodie Lee, The Exalted One. And then he’s IN THE RING!? And BOOTS Daniels down! Uno and Grayson attack Kaz while Lee looms over Daniels. He brings Daniels up in a familiar hold, but it’s not Sister Abigail or Blade Runner, it’s to feed the DISCUS LARIAT! The Dark Order stands tall and is even stronger! “WE ARE ONE!” But will AEW soon belong in entirety to the Dark Order?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Jake the Snake and Lance Archer ringside.

The Murderhawk is now part of AEW, but what is his purpose here? The Snake says Archer isn’t here to talk. Cody Rhodes was given his due when Jake Roberts threw the gauntlet down. But what have they gotten in return? NOTHING! Does Cody realize he should pay attention to a Hall of Famer when he’s talking? They’re not playing games, Cody. Jake told him what they want. It is one thing to avoid them and stay out of harm’s way. But to ignore them is like spitting in their faces! They will not stand for that. Jake heard The Elite “bitching” like a bunch of girls worried about who’s taking them to the prom. “LOOK AT US!” Shut Jake up if you can, but you won’t.

So Cody, it’s time to stand up and be a man. Jake and Archer are here for a reason. It wasn’t going to be something that turns personal. But it will, and it has. Cody had his chance to meet them straight on. Now, they will get his attention. Will Cody be able to focus on The Inner Circle knowing #EverybodyDies?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Lance Archer.

A “public workout” in a ring int he middle of the woods has a few dozen rednecks (for lack of a better term) all riled up. A ring card girl in Daisy Dukes and flip-flops signals the start of the next round. The ring leader welcomes them all to the “Murderhawk Mansion” as Archer and Jake head to the ring. Who among the men ringside is man enough to challenge Archer? Who is ready to #TryOrDie? Archer storms his way into the ring and welcomes his first challenger. The man who barely comes up to Archer’s armpits throws a forearm, to get DECKED! Archer CHOPS the man down then Choke Slams him OUT of the ring and onto more challengers!

Another man steps up, only to get a BOOT! And a CHOP! And the BLACK OUT BOMB! Archer shouts “Everybody dies!” as he uses the EBD Claw to smother the man into the mat! The ring card girl signals round 4, as a meaty man with a mullet throws forearms on Archer. Archer just eggs him on, before he POUNCES the man out of the ring! The biggest man yet steps up, but Archer relishes the moment. They throw forearms but then Archer throws knees! He stomps a mudhole into the man then LARIATS him down! Challenger after challenger falls until there is not one standing. No one but Archer, that is.

The Snake applauds and the two head out. But someone late to the party tells the “a**hole” he’s up next. So Archer choke slams the man ONTO A CAR HOOD! And then uses the EBD Claw to dribble the man on it over and over and over again! If this is what Archer can do in one afternoon, what will he do to Cody and The Elite week after week?

 

AEW makes big match announcements for next week’s episode!

Blood & Guts won’t be the only brutal match next week! Luchasaurus and Wardlow will compete in AEW’s first-ever Lumberjack match! Will MJF and the mercenaries be able to help Mr. Mayhem against the dino-man?

Then, challenge accepted! The Parking Lot Brawl will go down as Pentagon and Rey Fenix will give Chuckie T and Trent their rematch! Who wins this other first-ever for AEW?

And more specifics for next week’s main event, it will be a 5-on-4 match with Nick Jackson out of commission! However, the graphic suggests there is the possibility of a substitution. Is that true? And who would even step up to join The Elite?

 

Blood & Guts Advantage Six Man Tag: The Inner Circle VS The Elite!

And speaking of being down a man, that means this match is even more critical for The Elite! Will Cody Rhodes, Matt Jackson and Hangman Page be able to coexist and conquer? Or will facing the united unit of Big Hurt Jake Hager and the Proud ‘n’ Powerful Santana & Ortiz be too much to handle?

AEW is picture in picture with a Sammy Guevara card promo. “Prepare to be entertained! Coming up next… The Inner Circle will DEFEAT the Elite! We’ll gain the upper hand… at Blood and Guts! With the numbers advantage, NO ONE can beat… The Inner Circle! We’re the best!” Ortiz clearly shouts this several times. Oh hey, the next card is “Shout out to Santana and Ortiz.” Sammy continues to say, “Always holding your weight, shout out Big Jake.” There’s even a Polo shirt doodle. “Putting Mox on the shelf! Shout out Le Champion. On that commentary, now… sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.” AEW returns to single picture as Chris Jericho makes his entrance! Sing along at home! Sammy’s sour but that’s music to Jericho’s ears.

The Elite make their entrance and Arn Anderson is here to support the team. Jericho says the clipboard looks like a Waffle House menu. Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall join the audience and the Gunn Club is even here to cheer. Jericho insults the neck tattoo while also insulting Excalibur’s art skills before Matt Jackson makes his solo Young Bucks intro. Jericho plays dumb as to what happened between Nick Jackson and the garage door. Last but not least, Hangman Page makes his entrance with Kenny Omega by his side. Jericho gloats that he’s beaten all members of The Elite once so his 4-0 record goes to their advantage already. The trios sort out and this advantage match begins with Cody and Santana.

Jericho complains but Hangman and Matt are on the same page! Matt scoops Santana and Hangman slingshots, but Hager yanks Hangman down! Hangman SMACKS off the apron!! Santana slips out to wheelbarrow and victory roll, The Inner Circle win!!

Winners: The Inner Circle, by pinfall (gain Blood & Guts entry advantage)

And it’s over just like that! The Inner Circle already have a numbers advantage with Nick Jackson down, and now they’ll be able to use it time and again in Blood & Guts! “Look at this! Look at this!” Jericho calls everyone dumb idiots and asks if they saw what just happened. Shut the music off so he can talk! It’s not like there are fans here anyway. Jericho gloats that the Inner Circle would get the advantage, and now they are guaranteed to win Blood & Guts!

In fact, there are four reasons why they’re guaranteed to win. First, this win here giving them the advantage. Second, they’re The Inner Circle, duh! Third, Jericho bans all fans from all future AEW events until he says so. The world could change for the better tomorrow, still no fans allowed next week. He doesn’t need “pumpkin-headed dipsh*ts” chanting for Cody, Matt or whoever. And fourth and most important, after what happened to Matt’s “snot-nosed little brother,” Nick, this is 5v4 for an obvious advantage. They count it down on their fingers, making sure to end on the middle one. “You don’t stand a chance, maaan~!” So when Blood & Guts finally happens- Hager does push-ups with Sammy on his back!

But as Jericho was saying, the Inner Circle has never had any problems with each other. No tensions, no finisher friendly fire, no getting buzzed ringside, none of that! So there’s no way the Inner Circle does anything but win. They’ve dominated AEW! They’ve dominated The Elite! So come Blood & Guts, they’ll dominate that, too. And get paid a lot of money. Jericho talks smack to Brandi and Dustin now. Sammy, show off that bod. Hit up the Spanish God. Cody’s a loser anyway, so-

Wait, what’s that buzzing? Is that a drone? Is that THE drone?! Matt gets a mic to admit that The Elite hasn’t always been on good terms with each other. But one mistake Jericho made is assuming The Elite was outnumbered. It isn’t 5v4 at all. Matt made a call to a friend who owed him a favor. Piano music plays, and BROKEN MATT HARDY IS IN AEW!! The Inner Circle is speechless. Will Hardy help The Elite DELETE!?

 


 

My Thoughts:

What an amazing episode! Now, not to harp on comparisons with the WWE and their way of handling empty arena episodes, but this is how Raw should’ve handled it on Monday. Though, I am surprised AEW went ahead with as many matches and with as many people present as they did. And not to make it as if the audience doesn’t matter for a wrestling show, because there are times a live audience can add (or subtract) from wrestling. But when a show is booked the right way, live audiences don’t really matter for a television viewing experience. And this episode was booked right.

Cody opening to make a sort of plea to The Elite in hopes of rallying them together was good, and even Jake the Snake’s snipe about it was good, too. Archer’s vignette being him running a gauntlet of over a dozen men was great, as it gives us an idea of his AEW persona as opposed to the NJPW Archer. But obviously, “Everybody dies!” sticks with him no matter what. Archer may be Jake’s client but I wouldn’t mind seeing the ring leader join the faction as someone to make entrance introductions for them. MJF and the other wrestlers ringside really added to stuff, which was the perfect way to take advantage of no fans. Why WWE didn’t think to do more of that these last few days is a bit odd but now it’s too late, they’d be seen as copying AEW from here on.

The matches didn’t even need fans cheering it on, either, aside from their fellow wrestlers watching. The Women’s Fatal 4 was really good, and Penelope is doing great with this apparent push. Shida still wins as she’s been on course for a match with Nyla Rose for some time now, but everyone looked great in this match. Cabana and Kip getting at it was great and their match will be fun to see. Maybe Cabana ends up with a female ally to give us more Mixed Tag matches. There were some miscues here and there in the tag matches we got, but other than that, great stuff there, too. Next week’s Parking Lot Brawl is going to be great, and while Jurassic Park gets wins as duos, I’m still hoping this builds to the AEW Trios Championships.

The Dark Order’s Exalted One turning out to be Luke Harper/Brodie Lee was highly expected by a lot of us, but I’m okay with it. Him wanting The Dark Order to be more forceful is an interesting direction, but I did like his line about another old man not believing in him. Lee definitely has the physical strength to be an imposing leader, and Lee VS Daniels would make for a pretty good match that could easily be built all the way to Double or Nothing. And may have to, given the way of the world. I almost thought that with Moxley’s promo about a blind spot and the graphic suggesting a new fifth man meant he’d join The Elite for Blood & Guts, but seems not. Broken Matt freakin’ Hardy, ladies and gentlemen! What a great way to accent how it seemed all hope was lost for The Elite.

The Six Man Tag main event was great on all levels, from in the ring to the character work with everyone involved. I thought the moment of Matt Jackson and Hangman Page finally working together again was going to come in Blood & Guts, but they did at least save some sort of Buck Shot meets Indietaker combination move for that match. I am very intrigued to see Hardy bring back his Broken fighting style, and perhaps even change it up a bit more now that he’s in a new company. Blood & Guts being submission or surrender only, I’d think Hardy has a submission move picked out to use on someone, regardless if it gets the finish.

My Score:  9.3/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO!

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?

 

AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”

 

Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Ava. The two tie up, Nyla waistlocks but Ava fires elbows. Ava is free, she fires more shots, then winds up to ROCK Nyla! Ava runs, ducks Nyla’s lariat and wrenches, but Nyla stuffs the STO! Nyla choke grips and CHOKE SLAMS Ava! The fans fire up as Nyla storms around. Ava stands up, Nyla SPLASHES her in the corner! Then Nyla whips Ava back in, reels her in, and suplexes Ava high and hard! Nyla rolls through to deadlift and GOURD BUSTER! Ava sits up, into a SUPERKICK! Nyla fires up, reels Ava back in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

Ring rust is not a thing with Nyla Rose, and she barely broke a sweat here. Will The Native Beast make ever women’s champion in AEW and ROH her prey?

 

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

But will this dangerous trio soon become the baddest champions you’ve ever seen?

 

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots. Skye ROCKS Harley again, but Harley ducks ‘n’ dodge! DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both! The fans fire up and Cassidy puts Bennett in. Cassidy goes up top, Bennett gets under the jump. Bennett headlocks, Cassidy powers up and out, but Bennett runs him over. Cassidy UP KICKS, Bennett comes back to headlock. Cassidy powers out, ducks down then hurdles.

Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again!

Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

Bennett stays between Cassidy and Kyle, mocks the hands in pockets, then stomps Cassidy. Roddy is having fun now as Bennett whips Cassidy to ropes. Bennett ELBOWS Cassidy down, covers, TWO! Bennett clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Cassidy down. Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, then fires body shots. Bennett ROCKS Cassidy, tags Taven, and The Kingdom mugs Cassidy as Collision returns to single picture. But then Cassidy starts fighting back! The fans fire up as but Taven knees low. The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then whips him to ropes. POP-UP BAYONET! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

BEACH BREAK for Bennett! Cover, TWO!! Bennett survives and Roddy can’t take it! Roddy hurries to ringside but Cassidy tags Kyle. Cassidy and Kyle watch Bennett get up, but Roddy shouts at “KYYYLE~!”

Roddy tells Kyle he can’t do this to their friends! Kyle says Roddy needs to just back off. The ref tells Roddy to stop, but here’s Ishii!! Ishii YANKS Roddy down, he fires off hands! The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

The Savior of the Backbreaker is set for an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match tomorrow night on Collision against Dalton Castle. But in an occasion of turnabout is fair play, The Conglomeration is watching him from commentary! Will the presence of Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy & Mark Briscoe make Roddy better or worse than usual?

Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

The Virtuosa is served a glass of wine, and says we’ve never been formally introduced. We’ve all seen what she can do in the ring, but does anyone know what it means to be THE Virtuosa. “Wrestling isn’t just a sport or an art form, it’s both. And more set to a quickening pace than a staccato beat of bodies slamming, bones cracking, tendons tearing! All building towards a beautiful and violent crescendo.” Deonna likes what AEW has forced her to become. “Because here, actions have consequences.” And Deonna vows to burn the empire to the ground, to remake it in her own image. This is the Age of the Virtuosa.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Renee Paquette caught up with Chris Jericho, “Big Bill” Morrissey & Bryan Keith, and asks what the hell. Yes, she’s seen The Learning Tree do “a ton of horrible other things” throughout his career, but tonight with Samoa Joe crossed a line. What was he thinking? Jericho smiles, the leather belt gifted to him by Martha Hart still wrapped around his hand. He waves to the camera and says, “Hi, guys. And Renee, I don’t know why you’re so surprised. This is exactly what I’ve been saying for a long, long time. If you’ve listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. Look at The Redwood and Bad Apple.

“But if you don’t listen to The Learning Tree, bad things happen. Shibata had a chance, now his arm is hurt. Hook had a chance, we had to burn his face off with a fireball. And Samoa Joke, for years, I’ve been telling you to listen to The Learning Tree, you didn’t, we ran you through a wall, and now you’re in the hospital.” Bill is stifling a laugh this entire time. Jericho says if Joe needs something to help with his inflamed muscles he might have, try ginger and black pepper. It’s really good for you. See, Renee? Lots of lessons to be learned. And even more will be learned on Dynamite 250, with a special edition of TV Time with Chris Jericho. Thanks, guys~…!

Jericho leaves, and Bill says one of the biggest lessons that Jericho has taught them is that the more TV Time, the better. And they want as much TV Time as possible! Because The Learning Tree, The Bad Apple and The Redwood are always maximizing their minutes. She should try it some time. Keith says if you don’t respect Chris Jericho, they will MAKE you respect Chris Jericho. Will everyone in AEW learn the hard way that Jericho isn’t kidding around?

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

That could’ve been a win by knockout with that killer haymaker! But will Shane Taylor Promotions continue to rampage until they prove they prove they’re the elite of All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage, and while they shoved five matches onto this card again, they at least did their best to put story behind most of these. Roderick Strong was of course beating Ben Bishop, but they gave us a storyline plug by having The Conglomeration on commentary. And while Thunder Rosa was of course beating Rachael Ellering, they gave us story build with Deonna attacking them both. I feel like this will give us Deonna VS Ellering next, to stretch things out so that the true blowoff of Deonna VS Rosa isn’t until All In, probably in the All In Zero Hour. For that matter, that’s probably where Conglomeration VS Undisputed Kingdom 3v3 happens, too.

I’m a bit torn on the promo from Learning Tree Jericho and crew. The positive is that it was really good. I said for Dynamite that I like how the payoff is Jericho’s gone from condescending to sinister, and even Big Bill is getting into this crazy persona. The negative for me is that they kinda shoved this in here. I know we DO need to hear Jericho’s explanation, but if it was “after Dynamite,” then find a way to make it part of Dynamite. Or just leave it for Saturday Night Collision so that you aren’t already stuffing a one hour program full to the brim.

Great opening tag from House of Black VS Premier Athletes with Sterling & Woods of course getting involved, but great win for Malakai & Brody in that 4v2 situation. Still banking on them screwing over The Patriarchy during a Unified World Trios Championship match. The Six Man Tag was really good but not sure it was main event material compared to the Fatal 4 Way. Good stuff for the Six Man Tag, everyone got their shine, but that Fatal 4 Way was just incredible. Great win for Fenix to stay hot while all the titles have stories going into All In, but he could get a shot at like, Okada’s Continental Championship to give us a dream match moment before the PPV.

My Score: 8.8/10
