PLAY BY PLAY

The NEW AEW World Champion is here!

Nothing changes just because he has the belt now! Jon Moxley still comes out through the crowd and even takes an extra lap around to make sure everyone sees him holding the title. Moxley gets in the ring and Denver is thunderous as he gets a mic. They also chant, “You Deserve It!”

“You see this belt right here? This is the AEW World Championship.” It’s beautiful, isn’t it? And it’s beautiful because what it represents, what the three letters on it represent is PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING. “The sport that I love! The sport that I have dedicated my life to!” This belt never belonged to Chris Jericho. Hell, it doesn’t even belong to Moxley. This belt belongs to the fans. The fans in the building, the fans watching at home around the world, the fans that willed AEW into existence! All the fans that wanted something different, something better. “WE brought pro-wrestling back!” Denver cheers in agreement.

So Moxley vows to defend this belt with his life. “I will crawl through any hell to defend this belt. I will climb any mountain to defend this belt.” There is not a man in the entire industry to take this belt out of Moxley’s cold, dead hands! But if you want to try, step up and try. You’ll get knocked out, choked out, dropped on your head, it’s all the same to Mox. But Mox knows it isn’t over between him and the Inner Circle. They went after his eye, they wanted to take his career, and watching Mox with the belt is like acid burning in Jerich’s mouth. Moxley knows the Inner Circle will be gunning for him so he has a message for them all: “I dare you.”

Speaking of, here they come! Fans sing along with Judas as Jericho leads Ortiz, Santana, Sammy Guevara and Jake Hager on stage. Jericho has a mic but takes a moment to soak up the fans singing for him. Moxley paces as Jericho says, “Let me just start out by saying that I don’t need a damn belt to be Le Champion.” Fans say, “Yes You Do!” What a bunch of idiots, they can’t even chant in unison. So maybe they should shut up and let him say what he has to say. But Moxley’s proclamation is very daring. Typical Mox, even. A maverick, a rebel, “more guts than brains,” Lunatic Fringe. It all paid off because now the Moxley Era begins. Fans like that, right? “YES!” Jericho doesn’t, it already sucks ass. Fans tell Jericho, “You Suck Ass!”

Jericho continues by saying that the reason it sucks, is that along with everyone here in “Dumpy Broomfield,” Moxley’s championship win was based on a lie. Moxley cheated and lied! Jericho spent three months training to face a one-eyed man. The fact Moxley saw out of both eyes is not an action worthy of a champion! That makes Moxley a “snake oil salesman,” a Pharisee, and a cheater! And by proxy, the fans are all liars! Fans boo because they disagree. But since Mox won unfairly, he turned the Inner Circle from good natured and good looking guys into “a damn hit squad.” Fans call BS.

But Jericho says it is official: the entire AEW roster is on notice! It doesn’t matter if your the Librarian, Michael Nakazawa or Jon Moxley. They are going to tear everyone apart, hurt them, and Moxley is first. After tonight’s main event, Moxley & Darby VS Le Champion & the Spanish God, Jericho promises that Moxley will not walk out of the ring under his own power. Moxley will not leave “this dumb state” of his own volition. And Jericho is so sure of it, that if Moxley does survive, Jericho will take a leave of absence for 30 days. No, for 60 days! Jericho reminds Moxley that he always has a plan, and Moxley isn’t as smart as he thinks he is.

Is that so? Well no one said Moxley was a genius. But he’s sick of hearing Jericho talk. Moxley will do what he did at Revolution, except just here in Colorado! And he’ll make sure to send Jericho packing for 60 days looking like a “stupid son of a bitch!” The bet has been made, but will Jericho have to eat his words?

 

8 Man Tag: Colt Cabana & SoCal Uncensored VS The Dark Order!

BOOM BOOM! Chicago’s hero came to the rescue of Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian during the AEW Revolution Buy-In. Both he and Christopher Daniels said on a special edition of AEW Dark that they’d make sure to expose Evil Uno and Stu Grayson as frauds, but will it be so easy?

AEW is picture in picture as Cabana and SCU hear the roar of the crowd while giving out some high fives and fist bumps. AEW returns to single picture as The Dark Order makes their entrance. The teams sort out and Grayson starts against Cabana. Fans are on Cabana’s side as he circles with Grayson. Grayson rushes Cabana but Cabana dodges to CHOP! Cabana whips but Grayson reverses, only for Cabana to go up and under. Cabana eggs Grayson on, baits him in and trips him up to a cover! ONE, but Cabana CHOPS again! Grayson CHOPS back and Cabana CHOPS, too! Cabana headlocks but Grayson powers out to leap over, but Cabana tilt-o-whirl headscissors him down!

Fans fire up but Uno rushes Cabana! The Dark Order blows up the SCU corner then puts Cabana in theirs. Tag to Uno and the Dark Order commanders double whip. Uno elbows Cabana and feeds him to Grayson’s forearms. Cover, TWO! Uno headlocks and feeds Cabana to the Beaver Boys’ boots. Tag to John Silver and he throws European Uppercuts. Silver whips, but Daniels saves Cabana with a waistlock at the ropes. Cabana elbows Silver back then scoop slams him down. Tag to Daniels, Daniels tags to Kaz, then Daniels slingshots for the elbow drop. Kaz tags Scorpio before he slingshot leg drops, then Scorpio slingshots splashes! SCU blows up the Dark Order’s corner now!

Scorpio whips Silver to the SCU corner and runs in for a back elbow. Daniels hits a forearm, Cabana hits the Flying Apple, and Kaz finishes with the swinging dropkick! Fans fire up for “S C U!” as they and Cabana go back to their corner. Scorpio kicks away on Silver, whips him to ropes and dropkicks him down! Cover, TWO! Scorpio drags Silver up, tags Daniels and Daniels clubs Silver. Daniels puts Silver in an open corner but Silver powers him to the opposite confrere. Silver rams his shoulder in and again, then runs corner to corner. Daniels puts Silver outside, ducks him and clobbers him! Reynolds distracts the ref while Uno anchors Daniels’ feet! Grayson blindsides Daniels with a forearm!

Fans boo as Daniels is whipped into the post! Grayson taunts Scorpio while Uno puts Daniels in. Silver drags Daniels up and puts him in the corner. Uno tags in and stomps a mudhole into Daniels. Tag to Grayson but fans rally up as he stomps a mudhole into Daniels. The ref backs Grayson off, and the rest of the Dark Order chokes Daniels! Fans boo as AEW goes picture in picture.

Grayson tags Reynolds and Reynolds drags Daniels out for a cover. TWO, but Reynolds throws crossface forearms. Reynolds stomps Daniels on the face then chokes him on the ropes. Tag to Grayson and Grayson tags Uno. They both choke Daniels on the rope! The ref backs them off but Uno soaks up the jeers. Daniels fights back with haymakers! Uno blocks the boot and hands it to the ref to then hit a neckbreaker! Tag to Grayson and Uno sidewalk scoops Daniels, Grayson adds his elbow drop! Cover, TWO! Grayson keeps between Daniels and SCU to put Daniels in the corner. Tag to Silver and they both stomp away on Daniels.

Silver snapmares Daniels then boots him down. Silver kicks away on Daniels, then tags Uno in. Uno mugs Daniels in the corner and stomps another mudhole in! He grinds his boot into Daniels’ head as AEW returns to single picture. Reynolds taunts Daniels, “You should’ve joined!” Reynolds tags in and then tags in Silver. Daniels fights off the Beaver Boys! But he’s put in the corner for a roundhouse, rolling elbow, enziguri, stunner and GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Daniels survives that Beaver Boy blitzkrieg! Tag to Grayson as fans rally up, and Grayson stalks up behind Daniels. Torture rack but Daniels slips out to a headlock! Grayson elbows and enziguris back, but runs into a Complete Shot!

Fans rally up as Daniels and Grayson crawl for their corners, hot tags to Kaz and Reynolds! The Heavy Metal Rebel rallies with lariats but Reynolds reverses the whip. Kaz hits big flying forearms! He gets Silver with the guillotine leg drop! Reynolds staggers into a waistlock but standing switches. Kaz switches but Reynolds bucks him off. Kaz scoops Reynolds for a slam! Silver runs in to get a scoop slam! Kaz stacks the Beaver Boys for a springboard leg drop! That’s a two-for-one special! Fans fire up but Uno clobbers Kaz down! Cabana, Daniels and Scorpio rush in to go after Uno and the rest, and now it’s just chaos! The Dark Order bring up Cabana and SCU, but only Cabana gets thrown out! The SCU have Uno all alone!

Uno turns around to realize this, and he gets mugged! That’s 3v1 on Uno! Grayson gets in to save Uno, as do the Beaver boys. Grayson gets POSTED! Silver is thrown out, Reynolds gets a back elbow.

Winners: Colt Cabana & SoCal Uncensored, by pinfall

But Uno shouts, “No no! NO! This is not how this was supposed to go!” The Exalted One will be furious! When he arrives, “heads will roll!” Daniels says it won’t be theirs! Will the Exalted One show himself? Or is this just another smokescreen the Dark Order is putting up?

 

Britt Baker joins commentary.

She brought Tony Schiavone some coffee! Label out, of course. The Doctor’s been feeling pretty good given a recent win streak. Will she feel good about what’s up next?

Big Swole VS Leva Bates w/ Peter Avalon!

Aerial Monroe stood up to The Native Beast before Revolution but the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien took her shot first. Nyla Rose retained and now the chase is on again. Will Swole silence the Librarian as winter gives way to spring?

The bell rings and Swole circles with Leva. They tie up and Swole shoves Leva down. Avalon gives Leva a book to give to Swole, but Swole throws it away! Leva is upset and she SLAPS Swole! Avalon is also shouting from the apron but Swole is getting angry. Swole rushes Leva but she dodges and Avalon gets the BOOT! Leva SMACKS Swole with a hard back book and hits a BACKSTABBER! Swole staggers up but she still catches Leva for a SLAM! Then a KNEE! Swole runs to a corner but Leva puts her on the apron. Swole ROUNDHOUSES back, then says “GET OVER HERE!” with the step-in STUNNER! Fans fire up as Swole dead lifts Leva, spins her out, DIRTY DANCING! Cover, Swole wins!

Winner: Big Swole, by pinfall

Baker is not impressed. For Baker, it is the ratings that matter. But will Swole move up in the rankings to get her shot before Baker?

 

Cody Rhodes is here!

Though he did not win at Revolution, the fans still love him! What will the American Nightmare have to say about his defeat at the hands of MJF? We’ll find out when AEW returns from break.

AEW returns as Cody gets himself a mic. “I don’t know if I want to broach the subject of what it feels like personally to lose to MJF.” But what it means professionally is that you work your whole career to get on a PPV card, the actual card. That is guaranteed money. When you win, that is a PPV bonus. Or as good ol’ JR has put it, “the winner’s share of the purse.” What was once professional became personal between Cody and MJF but became professional again. The lashes, the loss, the ring, the only way Cody can be comfortable with it is if MJF comes out right now, looks Cody in the eye and tells him he won “fair and square.”

Wait, that isn’t MJF. That’s JAKE THE SNAKE!? Jake Roberts is on AEW!! He goes to the ring and everyone loses their minds! Jake clearly missed being in a ring because he takes a moment to hold the ropes and feel a turnbuckle pad. Cody hands over his mic as fans chant “Jake The Snake!” Jake hates to “spoil the party, but damn man, I got tired of listening to you cry and bitch.” Ouch. Jake never cried over one match in his career, and Cody is going to let “that little punk son of a bitch” get Cody down? He whipped Cody like a dog then kicked his ass at Revolution! Handed it right to him. But that’s not why Jake’s here. Oh, right, of course, “Hail mighty Caesar.” But Jake isn’t here to praise Cody, he’s here to slay Cody.

Jake tells Cody that the only reason Jake is here because he has a client. “The dark side will be coming to AEW.” And once they take root, it will be a phoenix rising from the ashes, soaring to the sun! Twenty years it’s been. Twenty years to get clean and to get right. “And by God, I earned it!” If anyone thinks for one minute that Jake will be a nice guy and play right, you’ve got another thing coming! For years, Jake put a snake in a bag just to make someone think about it. And when you let that get in your head, you ended up in the palm of Jake’s hand and he spanked your ass. Jake will be outside when his client faces Cody. Bring “that one trick pony” Arn with you!

But “Caesar,” you should know that a snake takes what a snake wants. He’s not after the whole pie, just Cody’s share. “A wise man once told me, never ever turn your back on somebody you respect or you’re afraid of.” So Jake turning his back on Cody now means Cody is neither. What does this mean for Cody, let alone all of AEW?!

 

PAC VS Chuck Taylor w/ Best Friends!

The Bastard beat The Sloth at Revolution, but not before the Lucha Brothers attacked Trent and Chuckie T. Now that the Kentucky Gentleman steps into the ring, will he, Trent and Orange Cassidy be able to flip the script? Or will more of the same happen here tonight?

AEW is picture in picture as Best Friends make it to the ring. Fans get thumbs up fist bumps from Cassidy especially the Cassidy cosplayer. AEW goes to break while Cassidy finishes his lap.

AEW returns as PAC makes his entrance. It’s of note that Pac has a 3-0 sweep on Best Friends and that includes Cassidy now. Will Pac start on a second sweep tonight?

The bell rings and Chuckie stomps around on his knees as he circles with Pac. They tie up, go around the ropes, and Chuck gets Pac on the ropes. Chucke backs off cleanly and fans cheer. Pac and Chuckie circle again, tie up, and now Pac powers Chuckie to the ropes. The ref calls for the break and Pac gives it, only to headlock right away! Pac throws Chuckie with a headlock takeover, but Chuckie rolls him to a cover. ONE, but Chuckie gets up and powers out of the hold. Pac slides under the boot to go up and get a headlock takeover again! Trent coaches Chuckie as he gets back up. Chuckie powers out again but Pac runs him over with a shoulder! Fans boo but things speed up, Chuckie goes up then under then over again, to side-step, but the headscissor throws Chuckie out with a thud.

Pac takes aim, builds speed, but then slides out to get in Cassidy’s face. Trent gets in Pac’s face and Pac backs off. Chuckie baseball slides Pac down! Chuckie puts Pac in but Pac hits a jawbreaker!

Chuckie goes up top but Pac is up. Chuckie leaps over Pac, Pac runs after him to hit a big back elbow in the corner! Pac follows Chuckie out to throw hard into railing! Fans cheer Chuckie on while Pac looms over him. AEW goes picture in picture as Pac brings Chuckie back up.

Pac fetches Chuckie for a snap suplex to the floor! Chuckie writhes while Pac goes back into the ring. Trent checks on Chuck again while Pac waits. Chuckie drags himself up and into the ring at 5, and Pac kicks him while he’s down. And again! Chuckie stands but Pac back kicks him hard into the corner. Pac grinds his boot into Chuckie’s head, but lets up when the ref counts. Only to go back in for more! The ref backs Pac off but Pac just stomps Chuckie again! The ref has to pull Pac off and reprimands him, but Pac just glares at Chuckie.

Chuckie sits up and seems to egg Pac on, so Pac stands on his face! Pac dares the ref to do something more than just count, then he goes back to Chuckie. AEW returns to single picture as Pac grabs Chuckie’s arm for a high keylock. Chuckie endures as Trent and the fans rally. Pac cranks on the arm but Chuckie fights his way up. Pac wrenches but Chuckie arm-drags free! Chuckie LARIATS Pac down and fans fire up. Pac goes to a corner, but he dodges Chuckie. Pac runs in but is put on the apron. He hits Chuckie away and then fakes Chuckie out with the springboard. Pac runs, but into a dropkick! Chuckie clotheslines Pac out, then slingshot PESCADO! Direct hit on Pac, and then Chuckie walks directly into a HUG with Trent!

Chuckie drags Pac up into the ring and fans rally for “Best Friends!” He brings Pac up to snap Falcon Arrow! Cover, TWO! Chuckie is a bit annoyed but he rallies the fans as he watches Pac stand. Pac is in the corner, he slips out to the apron and then slingshots in for a cutter! Chuckie goes to a corner, Pac runs in, but Chuckie catches the back elbow into a Gory Especial! Chuckie uses the corner to get Pac up and around to an AWFUL WAFFLE PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!?! Chuckie keeps going, heading up top. MOONSAULT FLOPS! BRUTALIZER!! Chuckie taps, Pac wins!

Winner: PAC, by submission

The sweep continues as the Bastard beats the Kentucky Gentleman. Trent gets in before Pac can do more, but Cassidy gets in, too?! Cassidy takes off the jacket! He got serious at Revolution, is he going to get furious tonight? But the Lucha Brothers appear! They SUPERKICK Cassidy down! Then Trent gets a SUPERKICK to ROUNDHOUSE! Pac stomps Cassidy while the brothers stomp Best Friends! Is this a new alliance of bastards?! Pac takes a mic to shout, “Listen up, scumbags! WE are Death Triangle, or as my amigos like to say…” Triángulo de la Muerte! AEW did this to themselves! “Nobody is safe.” DOUBLE STOMP PACKAGE DRIVER FOR THE SLOTH!! Is this deadly new trio going to destroy everyone in their path?!

 

Shawn Spears is still looking for #PERFECT10N in the AEW Tag Division.

But ladies and gentlemen, this is a call to arms. One lucky individual can have their life changed forever when they join the Chair Man and Tully Blanchard. They’ve been trying to find the right fit, going to many different professional wrestlers, but there are so many pro-wrestlers in the world. They need to go out into that world! AEW fans, please help them by using the hashtag #SearchForSpears.

 

Jake Hager w/ Proud ‘n’ Powerful VS QT Marshall w/ Dustin & Brandi!

The Big Hurt got his first win in AEW at Revolution, but God’s Gift to Wrestling got his a couple weeks ago in Atlanta. Will QT’s second win come as Hager’s first loss? Or will Hager take a bite out of the Big Apple and throw him away?

AEW is picture in picture as Dustin and Brandi accompany QT in the ring and hype up the crowd by giving out free apples. One is autographed, so maybe not edible. AEW goes to break as some lucky fans get very healthy souvenirs.

AEW returns as Hager makes his entrance with Santana and Ortiz. The bell rings while PNP barks at Dustin and Brandi on the outside. Hager and QT circle, tie up, and Hager waistlock slams QT down. Hager digs a knee into QT’s back then slaps him on the head. he rams QT into buckles then throws body shots. The ref reprimands but QT ROCKS Hager with hands! QT even dropkicks! QT dodges, springboards, but into a body check! Fans boo as Hager slicks his hair back. Hager drags QT up to a SPINE BUSTER! Fans troll Hager as “Jericho’s Bitch!” but Hager just grits his teeth. Hager scoops QT to RAM him into buckles, then SLAM him down!

PNP cheers Hager but the fans boo. Hager kicks QT while he’s down and fans rally up with “Q T!” He throws hands on Hager and uppercuts, but Hager shoves and knees low! Hager paces while Dustin coaches QT up. QT is in the drop zone, Hager goes corner to corner, but his Vader Bomb gets boots! QT is up, boots again, and then throws hands! He ROCKS Hager then whips but Hager reverses. QT handsprings to Neuralizer enziguri! Hager staggers and fans are thunderous for QT!

Winner: Jake Hager, by submission

Hager doesn’t let go so Dustin goes after him! But PNP goes after Dustin! Dustin is outnumbered against the Inner Circle! But here comes CODY! The American Nightmare helps his brother as he DECKS Ortiz and gives Santana a spinning powerslam! Hager sees Cody but gets fast hands and kicks! Ortiz has a chair to SMACK Cody down! Fans boo as the Inner Circle now mugs Cody! Dustin recovers and shields his brother, but here comes Matt Jackson! SUPERKICK for Ortiz! SUPERKICK for Santana! Nick Jackson can’t be here from injury but Matt goes it alone on Hager! Hager takes all the punches and chops, to give Matt a SPINE BUSTER!

The Inner Circle stands tall over the Nightmare Family/Elite as they beat them down with stomps and chairs. But wait, is that Hangman Page?! Hangman sips his beer on his way to the ring, but wants Ortiz to take it easy. Fans want to see “Cowboy Shit!” as Hangman walks up. Hangman takes another sip, sets his beer down carefully, and fires off on the Inner Circle! Clothesline sends Santana out but Hager kicks low. Hager whips, Hangman lands on the apron, BUCK SHOT!! And the beer is just fine! Hangman chugs it down, but then he flips off Matt. The Cowboy didn’t do it for him, he did it for Cody and Dustin. But then where is the line within The Elite that Hangman walks?

AEW is picture in picture as Hangman goes to the crowd.

Fans share their drinks with Hangman, and Hangman’s got quite the collection of cans and cups as he takes his leave. Hangman shrugs at Matt while getting topped off by a few more fans. Matt surely isn’t sure what to make of it, and neither are the Rhodes. But for now, what matters is that The Elite makes it out in one piece. Will there be more battles like this between the warring factions of AEW?

 

Breaking news for next week’s AEW!

Speaking of more battles, it has been decided that Dynamite in Salt Lake City will have Ortiz VS Cody! Will the American Nightmare have to watch his back after that warning Jake the Snake gave him?

Plus, the Death Triangle will make their official trios debut! Who will be the first to suffer at the hands of these three ruthless rudos?

Another trios battle to look forward to is the Jurassic Express taking on the full stable behind MJF! MJF leads his mercenaries, The Butcher & The Blade, into battle, but will they all go extinct at the hands of Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy and Marko Stunt?

And with the very special AEW Dynamite: Blood & Guts on the horizon, next week will have the official rules announcement! What more is there to this double ring, double cage contest of carnage?

 

MJF speaks.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman brags that he gets pins on the mat and bangs ring rats, aka “winning.” He went from protege to prodigy as he defeated Cody in the middle of the ring, proving that he truly was the final chapter of his epic odyssey. Now the AEW Faithful need an “author” we can count on, and MJF has a whole lot of ink for his legacy. MJF prepares to become the greatest world champion in the history of pro-wrestling! No need to change the channel or fix the audio. We all heard him right. It doesn’t matter if it’s Moxley or “Tim Buckto from South Peru,” MJF will become #1 contender and take the gold.

It doesn’t matter who is in his way, from Jericho to Hangman to Omega to PAC, or even someone easy like “a Lucha Boring or a Jungle Jabroni, or a teeny-tiny Marko Stunted Growth.” MJF will remain undefeated in AEW. And why? Because he’s better than you, and WOW it is so warm in here. Wardlow helps him take off his coat to show off the “I Pinned Cody” shirt. Forgot to plug this one. Obnoxious, regrettable and distracting. A bit like a neck tattoo, huh? MJF kisses the ring, but will he be kissing the title belt in his future?

 

Jon Moxley & Darby Allin VS Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara!

The Maniac and the Daredevil both won their matches at Revolution, but clearly things are not through for them and the Inner Circle. Y2J put the stipulation on himself that if he doesn’t beat Moxley, or at least beat him down so badly he can’t walk, that Jericho will go on a two month leave of absence. Will Le Champion and his Spanish God be able to get even with their respective rivals?

But as Moxley makes his way through the fans, three masked fans attack! They wear AEW hoodies and random luchador masks, but Jericho is laughing. Are these more thugs from the Inner Circle? Wait, it’s just Hager, Santana and Ortiz! How did they sneak up into the crowd like that?! Hager throws Moxley into a wall and stomps him down! Ortiz brings a trash can over and dumps it on Moxley! Moxley fights back but Hager uses his jacket to choke him! After all, the bet wasn’t about the match but about Moxley being able to walk. Hager uses the trash can lid to SMACK Moxley on his back and shoulders! And then choke him! Moxley still gets up to fight back! But that’s still a 3v1! PNP choke Moxley together then Hager stomps Moxley down!

Fans boo but Hager knees Moxley low! More trash is dumped on Moxley, and the Inner Circle soaks up the heat. But Moxley is up yet again! Moxley topples Hager over but Santana clubs Moxley. Hager gets the arm-triangle! Moxley fades out and now Darby is alone. He doesn’t care, he’s as crazy as Moxley! The bell rings and Sammy steps up to Darby for a Revoltuion rematch.

Jericho sits down deep on his hold, Darby endures, but he’s trapped! Darby powers up, crawls for the ropes, and gets the ropebreak! Jericho is furious and argues with the ref, but Darby is on the apron. Jericho baseball slides Darby out! Hager stands on Darby’s head while Jericho soaks up the heat. Fans boo and jeer as AEW goes picture in picture.

Ortiz gets a cheap shot in while the ref is watching Jericho. Jericho goes out to high five his guys, then fetches Darby. Darby fights back with haymakers! He backs Jericho down then whips, but Jericho reverses to send Darby OVER the railing! Jericho heads over to fetch Darby and bring him back to the ring. Cover, TOW! Darby still lives but Jericho keeps his cool. The Inner Circle all taunt Darby as Jericho drags him over. Tag to Sammy and Sammy drags Darby around. Sammy holds Darby’s hand out to tag Moxley, but of course Moxley isn’t there. Sammy STOMPS the hand down! He drags Darby up for a stalling suplex and holds Darby for over 20 before tagging Jericho. Jericho takes the hand-off and holds Darby for another 20 before dropping him down!

AEW returns to single picture as Jericho double guns. Fans boo but the Inner Circle just keeps soaking it up. Jericho drags Darby up to CHOP him back down. Tag to Sammy and Sammy brings Darby up. He and Jericho double whip and double elbow him down. Sammy shows off with a spin and a pose, and Jericho poses with him. Like a cocky father and son. Jericho steps on Darby on his way back to the corner, and Sammy steps on Darby, too. Cover, TWO! Sammy drags Darby up and clubs him back down. Sammy CHOPS Darby and pretends to not understand the “F*** You, Sammy!” chants. Tag to Jericho and he stalks up behind Darby.

Jericho SLAPS Darby, fans chant “Stupid Idiot!” but Darby SLAPS back! Darby fires up and throws fast hands! Darby runs and clotheslines Jericho out! Then he runs to DIVE! Direct hit sends Jericho into barriers! Sammy is speechless! Darby puts Jericho back in and fans shout “This is Awesome!” Jericho kicks Darby down then tags in Sammy.

Fans are electric as Darby goes up, COFFIN DROP AGAIN!! Cover, but Jericho runs in, only to elbow drop on Sammy! Darby sends Jericho back out with a back drop, then DIVES! Into an uppercut! Was it a Judas Effect?! Jericho puts Darby in for Sammy, and Sammy covers, the Inner Circle wins!

Winners: Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara, by pinfall

The revenge for Revolution is complete and the “good natured good looking men” are standing tall. But wait! Moxley is standing and he has a chair! Jericho runs so Moxley throws the chair at Hager! Moxley takes the fight to Sammy and PNP, then clotheslines Hager out! PARADIGM SHIFT FOR SAMMY! Again, it wasn’t about the match but whether or not Moxley would be walking! Moxley is standing tall and has ran off the Inner Circle! Hager gets in to CLOBBER Moxley, and then PNP are after Moxley at the ramp! They want to still follow through on Jericho’s promise, and Jericho helps punch and knee Moxley down. Arm-triangle! They bring Moxley over to the edge of the stage, to copy a certain trio’s TRIPLE POWERBOMB!! THROUGH A TABLE!!

Fans lose their minds as the Inner Circle combine fist bump and middle finger, one last insult to injury for Moxley tonight. Jericho may not be champion but he and his team may be even more dangerous in the chase.

 


 

My Thoughts:

What an awesome episode to follow an awesome PPV with! AEW has gotten a lot better at blending stories, though they might not have perfected it yet. Cody’s promo being interrupted to be Jake the Snake’s promo was awesome! The phrase, “You Still Got It!” truly applies here, because Jake still tore it up on the mic. I like the idea that he’s going to be the ringside coach to perhaps someone completely new to AEW who wants after Cody, and given certain social media posts, I hope it’s going to be Lance Archer. Archer wants to go after The Elite, and giving him Jake the Snake as a manager is a great move so that fans not familiar with Archer can understand how important it is for him to be joining AEW.

There are still some miscues with cutting to live promos backstage, as in the one we got from MJF tonight. But opening line being talked over aside, MJF’s promo was solid and obviously he’s in the world title scene now. Given what else we got, MJF isn’t getting his shot yet, but next week’s trios match of MJF, Butcher & Blade VS Jurassic Express is going to be great holdover material for him. And speaking of trios, I really hope we’re getting the AEW Trios Championships very soon. Death Triangle is a great team already, even before their debut match next week, and I hope they’re the first team to have those belts. Cabana & SCU VS Dark Order was a great opening match, and that story is far from done.

A lot of the mingling that went well tonight was Hangman helping against the Inner Circle for Cody and Dustin, not because he was making up with Matt Jackson. Hangman’s character work combine with his ring skill is exactly why he and Kenny Omega are still AEW World Tag Team Champions. AEW Revolution gave us something truly incredible, but I can’t wait for more of Hangman-Omega VS Young Bucks. The only thing still a bit much for the mingling is how the Inner Circle got that ambush on Moxley in disguise. Just let them go after him straight up since it was so obvious after like two seconds. But either way, it was a good move because it allowed Darby to really shine in the main event. Also, it was a brilliant move to mock The Shield as the Inner Circle bombs and taunts Moxley at the end there.

My Score: 9.3/10

Six Man Tag: Adam “Edge” Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston VS Top Flight!

The Rated R Chickenhawks or whatever you want to call them are getting ready for their battle with The House of Black at Dynasty! But will they be able to bring some momentum into St. Louis? Or will Action Andretti and the Martin brothers be too fast for them to keep up with?

The trios sort out and Action starts against Mark. Action does a crane stance to mock redneck kung-fu, but Mark strikes his stance. Action kicks, Mark blocks then flips Action to arm-drag him down! Mark has the cording hold to grind Action down, but action fights up. Mark wrenches the wristlock, but Action spins, bridges, and handsprings through and wrenches back. Action headlocks, Mark powers up and out, but Action sunset flips! Mark rolls through to headlock back. The fans rally as Action fights up, powers up and power out, then hurdles. Action runs, handsprings through the hip toss, then whips. Mark reverses but Action goes up and over.

Edge rises, but into a DROPKICK! Darius tags Dante and they double whip Edge to a corner. Dante sends Darius in but Edge puts Darius on the apron. Darius CHOPS Edge, Dante A-LIST LARIATS! Then Darius snap suplexes, Dante slingshot SENTONS!

The fans are torn as Dante stays between Edge and Eddie. Dante is a little surprised, but he ROCKS Edge to a corner. Dante runs in, but Edge dodges the elbow! Edge runs in, Dante dodges to then go up and around, only to get caught! POWERSLAM! Edge brings Dante over, tag to Eddie, and the fans fire up as Eddie HEADBUTTS away on Dante! Eddie CHOPS Dante in a corner and Dante sputters as he falls! Eddie taunts Darius and Action, then he whips Dante. Dante goes up and out to ROCK Eddie from the apron. Dante springboards to CANNONBALL! The fans fire up as both men stand, and Eddie knees low!

Eddie CLUBS Dante in the chest! The fans fire up behind Eddie as he stalks Dante, and he ROCKS Dante while Collision goes picture in picture.

Eddie drags Dante back up, puts him in the corner, and smothers him while he tags Mark. Mark then CHOPS Dante, brings him around, and suplexes high and hard! Cover, TWO!

Dante stands, but he ducks the backhand to then jump and RANA! Eddie stagger sup, into a JUMP KNEE! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Hot tags to Darius and Mark!

Winners: Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, by pinfall

This trio is ready! They also show respect to Top Flight, but wait! The lights go down! And we all know that means House of Black! Buddy Matthews sarcastically claps from the tron as he says that was impressive. But take a moment to look each other in the eyes, so they can thank each other. Because in 24 hours, the House of Black eradicates all their dreams at Dynasty. Malakai Black steps forward to say they will dig deep. So deep that they reach their deepest, darkest fears. So deep, that Edge will wonder if he’s close to Hell. It will oddly feel familiar. Because let’s face it, for people like Malakai and Edge, Hell is where the heart is.

The lights come back up, but neither edge, Eddie or Mark sweat that warning. Will the AEW TNT Champion, the ROH World Champion and the NJPW Strong Openweight Champion be too good of a hand for the full House to stop?

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ Don Callis VS CJ Esparza!

The Don Callis Family is all in action tonight, and it starts with Hobbs warming up for his showdown on Dynamite. The NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Jon Moxley, called Hobbs out, will Hobbs send him a message back through the #FlippinSweet Mr. CJE?

The bell rings, Hobbs almost laughs at CJE for being less than half his size. CJE fires hands, but Hobbs shoves and CLOBBERS CJE right down! Hobbs drags CJE up, and whips him right out of the ring! Hobbs goes out after CJE, Callis is on commentary to tell us that Hobbs has done things we can’t even talk about on TV. And that’s about to happen to CJE! POWERSLAM on the apron, another POWERSLAM, and then another POWERSLAM! Hobbs puts CJE in, for the TORTURE RACK!! CJE taps, Hobbs wins!

Winner: Will Hobbs, by submission

Callis joins his Powerhouse in the ring, with a mic, to say he has something important to say. The fans boo as Callis says the Don Callis Family is the talk of the pro-wrestling world! They have the Bunkhouse Brawl tonight, so out of concern for his own personal safety, Callis will NOT be at ringside. But everyone is talking about Hobbs VS Moxley for Dynamite. That is what you know, but he’ll tell us what we don’t know. Everyone knows that Callis was directly responsible in 2017 for Kenny Omega to win the then IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Everyone knows the biggest match in the history of Japanese wrestling was Omega VS Jericho in the Tokyo Dome in 2018!

Omega VS Jericho was signed, sealed and delivered by “Don BAH GAWD Callis,” and it was a match that set NJPW on a new course of success that they enjoy to this day. And they thank him for the favor, or “onkei,” he promised he’d come back to ask for that favor. And in Japanese culture, everyone honors those commitments. Callis waited six years to cash in that chip, and he’s been burning up the phonelines to cash in ALL his chips. So he is happy to announce here tonight, that Moxley VS Hobbs on Dynamite is now for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship!! Once again, that IWGP world title will come home to the Don Callis Family!

The fans boo at Callis pulling strings, but now Hobbs has the biggest match of his career! Will the Powerhouse add some gold to the Book of Hobbs’ next chapter?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Hey, everybody. Um, first of all, I just want to apologize to Hook, to Taz, and to all of you watching for my conduct this past Wednesday night. I lost my temper and I pushed Taz to the mat, which made Hook lose his cool, and he came at me. Listen, I don’t blame Hook for that at all. I mean, if somebody put their hands on a person that means as much to me as Taz does to Hook, I would’ve done the exact same thing. And when you had me in the corner, Hook, you said to me, ‘I’m gonna show you just how good I am, any place, anywhere.’ And unfortunately, I’m gonna take you up on that.”

Jericho reveals he went to Tony Khan and asked for an FTW Championship match, and that request was granted. The real unfortunate part is this: The Learning Tree is gonna teach Hook one of the hardest lessons he’s ever gonna learn, and it’s a lesson in humility. A lesson about how hard it is to lose something that means so much to him. But the Learning Tree will make sure Hook is learning not just in-ring lessons but life lessons, as well. Jericho wants to make Hook a better wrestler and a better person. So keep this in mind: Jericho will beat Hook for the FTW Championship, but it will hurt Jericho a lot more than it will Hook.

The Ocho is looking to humble the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, but will he be the one that gets humbled instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

In the homecoming of AEW, the post-Dynasty Dynamite will be live coast-to-coast! No delays for the West Coast, watch it at 5 PM Pacific while East watches it at 8 so we can all celebrate AEW together!

 

The Acclaimed w/ Billy Gunn VS The Gunns w/ Jay White!

Ahead of putting all the trios gold on the line, we get a remix of the… “classic” feud between these teams! Max Caster & Anthony Bowens want to humble Austin & Colten like they did over a year ago, but will this be where the Ass Boys graduate to being men? Caster has a track on deck! “It’s 420, Bowens is all about that incense. They legalized weed, but y’all legalized incest. Damn, guys, y’all progressive with the foreplay, but I’m a kill y’all like that cancer killed OJ. Damn, think you hotter than the North Face? I’m a put you to sleep like Trump at his court date! Back tot he trash, boys. We do it big, y’all’re just the little ass boys!”

The fans fire up as Bowens says, “PEEEOREAAA~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! But before things get going, Tony Schiavone gets on a mic to make an announcement. Gunns, get in the ring. If you walk out on this match- White wants Schiavone to shut up but Schiavone says no, Tony Khan is putting this out. If the Gunns run away from this match, they don’t get their match at Dynasty! Austin says they can just leave now then. Schiavone asks if he even heard a word that was said. But then Bowens TOSSES Colten & Austin in, the bell rings, and it’s on! The Acclaimed fire off hands and stomps!

The fans fire up as Caster & Bowens whip the Gunns into each other! Caster TOSSES Colten, Bowens DECKS Austin, and they get Austin set up for SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! Austin flounders away, but Colten runs in! Caster dodges to send Colten into buckles! Bowens and Austin brawl while Caster rains down fists on Colten! The fans count along, but Austin trips Caster up! Colten flapjacks Caster off buckles, then Austin TOSSES Bowens over barriers! Billie is furious but Colten stomps a mudhole into Caster while Collision goes picture in picture.

Colten snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Austin frowns as the fans taunt him, but Colten tags him in. Austin stomps away on Caster, soaks up the heat, and Colten CHOKES Caster behind the ref’s back! Caster flails, White dares Billy to do something, while holding the golden bat. Austin TOSSES Caster out, Billy watches White closely, but Colten CLUBS Caster. Austin drags Caster up and in, bumps him off buckles, then taunts Billy & Bowens. Colten joins in on that, and Austin ROCKS Caster! And ROCKS him again! Tag to Colten, he stomps a mudhole into Caster then drags him up. But Caster throws body shots!

Caster backs Colten down, but Colten knees low as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Colten has Caster down in a HALF CRAB! Tag to Austin, and he gets the other leg, DOUBLE HALF CRAB! The ref counts, Colten lets go at 4, but Austin still has his half crab. Caster endures, Colten tags in and he gets the half crab back! The fans rally, Caster crawls, and now Colten is out of reach! Colten turns Caster over but Caster BOOTS him away! Austin tags in, grabs lets, but Caster kicks him away! And kicks him again! Austin still tries but Caster BOOTS him! Tag back to Colten, he stays between Acclaimed, only for Caster to send Colten into Austin! Hot tag to Bowens and he rallies on the Gunns!

The fans fire up as the Five Tool Player ROLLING ELBOWS Colten, then ROCKS Austin! “EVERYONE! LOVES THE ACCLAIMED!” Colten runs up, into the kick, mule kick and FAMOUSER! Cover, TWO! Colten survives but Bowens pounds the mat. The fans rally, Colten rises, and Bowens runs up to fireman’s carry! Colten flails, grabs ropes, and Austin holds Colten, too! Bowens breaks that, DECKS Austin then gets around Colten. Colten switches, Bowens switches, but Colten again grabs ropes. Austin again holds Colten, but Caster runs up to DECK Austin! Bowens rolls Colten up, TWO and Bowens is sent into Caster!

Colten rolls Caster, feet on ropes, but the ref sees! The fans cheer as the Gunns get caught! White is furious, but then Bowens fireman’s carries Colten! USHIGOROSHI! And a SHINING WIZARD! Cover, but Austin breaks it! The fans boo but neither man has someone to tag, so they rally up behind Bowens. Bowens runs up but Colten puts him on the apron. Bowens ROCKS Colten, Colten gets in the ref’s face, and Austin anchors Bowens! Bowens kicks Austin away, but Colten runs up to FAMOUSER! Cover, TWO!! Bowens survives and White protests the count! Colten is frustrated, but he tags in Austin and the Gunns bring Bowens up.

The Gunns double whip, then run to BULLDOG! Bowens staggers up, into a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Bowens survives again and Billy laughs at White. Austin calls the shot and tags Colten in. But Bowens BOOTS Colten! Then BOOT to Austin! Caster sneaks a tag, Bowens baits Austin in and Austin clotheslines him up and out! Caster leaps in, Colten gets under, only to run into a fireman’s carry! Colten CLAWS Caster’s eyes then DECKS him! White says finish it, and Colten loads up. Colten underhooks but Caster wrenches out to then BACKHAND! Fireman’s carry, DEATH VALLEY BOMB! The fans fire up with Caster and he goes to the corner!

But Austin runs up to trip Caster up! The fans boo, but Bowens CLOBBERS Austin into the ring! Bowens fires off Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK on Colten! SUPERKICK for Austin! Bowens roars, the fans fire up again, and he runs in at Austin! Austin goes up and over, Colten gets in place, 3:10 TO YUMA!! But MIC DROP on Austin!! Colten rolls Caster up, TWO!! Caster escapes, runs back in, but is put on the apron. Caster RAMS into Colten, slingshot sunset flips, but Colten sits on it! White reaches out the bat for Colten to hold onto!! THE GUNNS WIN!!

Winners: The Gunns, by pinfall

The Bang Bang Gang didn’t run away from this fight, but they did steal the victory! Will the Bullet Club pull off an even biggest heist tomorrow night in Dynasty’s Zero Hour?

 

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon and notes that the Don Callis Family has been relentless. Last time we saw Bryan, he was laid out by a brainbuster to the ramp. Tonight, it is a Bunkhouse Brawl against Takeshita & Fletcher, right before Dynasty’s match with Will Ospreay. How is Bryan feeling? Bryan says it sounds like a lot on his plate. Yet here he is! He feels alive! And it does seem like the DCF is up to something. What could that be? Does Don Callis not have the faith in Ospreay he says he does? Another reason Bryan feels alive is because Takeshita dropped him on his head, on the ramp, and yet Bryan gets his revenge tonight!

Then tomorrow, Bryan will test himself against Will Ospreay, a man many people call the best in the world today, and Bryan will test that for himself. But then in walks Ospreay, wanting to apologize. He had nothing to do with what went down on Dynamite or Collision this past week, so he just wants there to be no excuses on either side. He has nothing to do with this stuff. Bryan says sure he doesn’t. Bryan leaves, Ospreay wants to defend his innocence, but will it matter when it’s all said and done?

 

Toni Storm speaks.

It was after the incident with Thunder Rosa on Dynamite that the AEW Women’s World Champion returned backstage. She said to keep this in full color, so that we could see what Rosa did to her. And she also wants to make what she says clear. Rosa wants to be a hero? A martyr? To rally the troops? There is nothing more disgusting than a wrestler that says they’re not selfish. This is a business, not a charity. If Rosa wants to uplift other women, she should’ve stayed a social worker. Rosa may be a fighter, but Storm is a star. Rosa doesn’t want this belt back because she once held it, but because of everything Storm has made it that Rosa never could.

This title shines in Storm’s reflection. This leather smells nice when Storm sniffs it. And Rosa just basks in the sunshine that glows right out of Storm’s arse! Rosa wants to take Storm to Hell? Better check the address. Hell is in Storm’s bedroom and Storm makes love to her demons every bloody night. So don’t worry, at Dynasty, Rosa can just watch. The leading lady is ready for the dramatic climax of this title picture, but will she be the one on top when it’s all over?

 

Bunkhouse Brawl: Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita!

The Blackpool Combat Club has been throwing hands with the Don Callis Family but it’s time to throw rules out the window. Will the American Dragon & Swiss Superman make it through? Or will the Aussie Arrow & Alpha make sure Bryan doesn’t establish his Dynasty?

Oh no! The DCF attack during the BCC’s entrance! The bell rings as Takeshita is after Claudio just off the stage, and Kyle tells everyone to “SUCK IT!” Kyle drags Bryan up, Takeshita kicks and kicks and kicks at Claudio. Bryan hits Kyle back, they’re actually ringside. Kyle still whips Bryan into railing! Claudio BOOTS Takeshita in return, they brawl behind the stands! Bryan TOSSES Kyle into the front row! Takeshita HEADBUTTS Claudio, Bryan FLYING KNEES Kyle down! Bryan then helps Claudio mug Takeshita! Bryan sets Takeshita up for Claudio to come running down the bleachers to CLOBBER him!

The brawling goes back to the front row, Bryan rains down fists on Kyle, and KICKS him in a chair! The fans fire up as they’re right in the action, and then Bryan brings Claudio around. Bryan SMACKS Kyle off railing, KICKS him, and Claudio fires forearms on Takeshita! Kyle looks for anything to use as a weapon but only finds foam scissor fingers. Takeshita CHOKES Claudio, Kyle SMACKS Bryan off railing! Takeshita runs up but Claudio sends him into barriers! Kyle CHOKES Bryan in front a child! Kyle SMACKS Bryan off the barriers, taunts the kid, then brings Bryan around. Claudio RAMS Takeshita with a trash can!

Kyle dumps Bryan over railing and to ringside. Claudio helps keep things clean, literally, and the fans cheer. Kyle brings Bryan around, whips, but Bryan reverses to send Kyle into barriers! Bryan SMACKS Kyle off the desk! Meanwhile, Takeshita DUMPS Claudio over barriers, then whips, only for Claudio to POST him! Claudio stalks Takeshita, but Takeshita ROCKS Claudio! Takeshita has the bell hammer, and he CLUBS Claudio on the back! And CRACKS him in the ribs! Takeshita grins, takes a swing, but Claudio ducks, hammer hits post! Bryan CHOKES Kyle using camera cables! Claudio runs up on Takeshita to fire forearms!

Bryan DRAGS Kyle around, Takeshita ROCKS Claudio and puts him in the ring. Bryan sits Kyle up to KNEE him in the back! Claudio and Takeshita trade forearms and the fans rally up! Claudio UPPERCUTS, Takeshita forearms, then boxing elbows! Bryan sends Kyle into barriers! Takeshita ROCKS Claudio, eggs him on, then stands him up. Claudio roars and fires UPPERCUTS! Takeshita CLAWS Claudio’s eyes, then BITES his forehead! Takeshita runs but into a SPINEBUSTER! And from there, the shirt comes off so Claudio can SWING Takeshita around! Bryan joins in, and at the count of TEN, Bryan DROPKICKS Takeshita!

The fans are thunderous for the BCC, because then Claudio steps through for the SHARPSHOOTER! Bryan DIVES into a chair!! Kyle takes Bryan outta the air, then gets in the ring to POCKET SAND!! Claudio lets go of Takeshita, Kyle SUPERKICKS him, then hits the LAST RIDE!! Cover, TWO!! Claudio survives all that for the BCC, but Bryan is busted open! The fans are thunderous for “A E DUB!” while Collision goes picture in picture.

Takeshita stands, and he uses Claudio’s shirt to CHOKE him! Claudio can only endure as Takeshita pulls back! Takeshita lets go so he and Kyle can drag Claudio up. They line up and POST Claudio! Claudio flops out of the ring, the DCF soaks up the heat, but Bryan drags himself up the apron. Takeshita has Bryan and puts him on ropes! Kyle BOOTS Claudio back down! Takeshita CHOKES Bryan, and also CLAWS as the bloody wound! Kyle has Claudio along railing so he can CLUB and CLUB and CLUB away! Then he DUMPS Claudio down, and he helps Takeshita CHOKE Bryan against the ropes!

Claudio BOOTS Kyle, but Takeshita WRECKS Claudio! Bryan flounders away, Kyle CLOBBERS Claudio with a chair! Takeshita CLUBS Bryan, Claudio ROCKS Kyle! The brawling continues, Bryan huffs and puffs and powers up to fire forearms back and forth with Takeshita! Kyle TOSSES Claudio over railing! Takeshita DECKS Bryan right out of the ring! Takeshita then stalks Bryan to the ramp, where this ended last week. Takeshita stands Bryan up as Collision returns to single picture, “This is Awesome!” as Takeshita suplexes! Bryan slips free, kicks low and DDTS to the ramp! The fans are thunderous, but then Kyle CLOBBERS Bryan!

Kyle throws hands, but here comes Claudio! LARIAT!! Claudio HAMMERS Kyle with the bell hammer, then whips Kyle hard into barriers! Bryan sits up with a crimson mask, but Claudio moves the steel steps around. Claudio DRIBBLES Kyle off the steel! The fans count all the way to TEN! Now Kyle is busted open! ELEVEN! Bryan fires hands down on Takeshita, then Claudio joins in. They get Takeshita in the ring, fans want tables, but for now the BCC coordinate. Claudio hangs Takeshita out to dry, and Bryan GUILLOTINE KNEE DROPS! The fans fire up with Bryan as he storms around, and he takes aim to KICK! And KICK! And KICK!

Claudio sends Kyle into barriers, then runs up, but is TOSSED into the crowd! Bryan KICKS again and again, “YES! YES! YES!” BUZZSAW! The fans fire up with Bryan and the “YES! YES! YES!” But Kyle is there to anchor Bryan’s feet! Takeshita HELLUVA KICKS! Takeshita soaks up the heat as he storms around, but Claudio’s back! Only for Takeshita to GERMAN SUPLEX! Kyle gives Claudio a GAMANGIRI! Then the DCF each suplex, DOUBLE BRAINBUSTERS!! Cover, TWO!!! BCC survives, Kyle snarls through the blood from his own forehead, but Takeshita is ice cold. Kyle goes out to then look under the ring.

Fans want tables but Kyle chooses the CHAIN! Kyle swings that around, then sends that in to Takeshita.

Winners: Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli, by submission

This Bunkhouse Brawl was brutal, but it goes the Blackpool Combat Club’s way! Bryan has the music stop so he can get on the mic. He had a lot of people asking, “What the hell are you doing having a Bunkhouse match the night before you wrestle Ospreay? It’s because of this. Some people, when they think of Heaven, they think of streets of gold, they think of 40 virgins, but that’s not me! My spirit is a part of this! When I die, my heaven will be standing in this ring, bleeding in front of all you people right here in Peoria, Illinois!” The fans cheer that!

Bryan continues to say that having a whole crew of people trying to break him before he faces one of the best in the world, having everyone tell him he can’t do it… Tomorrow, at Dynasty, Bryan beats Ospreay’s ass! The fans really fire up for that one! The American Dragon may not be 100%, but will he be giving 1000% when that bell rings in St. Louis?

 

Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway speak.

The Galaxy’s Greatest asks, “Do you wanna know what we are? We are fired up!” The Babe with the Power says yep! And you wanna know what “fired up” is long for? F U! Because what that is short for is FIRED UP! Stokely stops them from burning out, because where he’s from, F U means something different. So therefore, F U Brody King! F U to the soon to be former TBS Champion, Julia Hart! Willow asks if a confident champion takes a chain and sucker punches their challenger days before the match. Don’t think so! Willow has Julia’s number this time, so Willow’s gonna do something she’s never done before.

Willow is gonna pick Julia up, hoist her high, and BOMB her through that mat, to send her back to the shadow realm she came from. Tomorrow at Dynasty, Willow walks out the NEW TBS Champion, b*tch!! WORLDSTAR!! OH~! Willow is ready, but will she go from Babe with the Power to the Babe with the Title?

 

Skye Blue VS Leyla Hirsch!

The Chicago Skye is getting darker and darker, but she still chases the bright shine of championship gold. Will she be primed for something after Dynasty? Or will there be a LEGIT contender stepping up instead?

The bell rings and Skye BOOTS Leyla right down! Skye CLUBS Leyla, fires forearms, then lets off to argue with the ref. Leyla trips Skye to rain down fists! Skye gets away, but Leyla whips. Skye reverses to kick low, then runs and runs and hops on, but Leyla blocks the Code Blue to SLAM Skye down, and KNEE her in the face! Skye scrambles out of the ring and fans boo. Leyla is annoyed, but she watches Skye go around the way. Leyla then builds speed to DIVE into a forearm! Skye may’ve baited Leyla in there, but now she drags her out onto the apron, DRAPING TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Skye drags Leyla up and into the ring, then takes her time storming in.

The fans rally, Skye stomps Leyla, then stomps her more. Skye drags Leyla up, reels her in, and snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Leyla hangs tough but Skye drags her up to CHOKE her on ropes! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then she storms up on Leyla again. Leyla ROCKS Skye! And ROCKS her again, and again! Skye DECKS Leyla for it! Skye then drags Leyla back up, whips her into a corner hard, then goes to the opposite end. The fans fire up as Skye runs, handsprings and FOREARMS! Skye grins, whips corner to corner, but Leyla reverses to SAIDO! Leyla storms up, wheelbarrow and GERMAN SUPLEX!

Leyla has the fans rallying up as she takes aim. Skye stirs, Leyla puts her in a drop zone, then goes up. But Skye CLUBS Leyla! Skye then tucks Leyla in for CHEEKY NANDOS! Leyla wobbles on the ropes, Skye turns her around and climbs up after her. Skye fires forearms, brings Leyla up, but Leyla fights the lift! Leyla CLUBS Skye, CLUBS her again and again, then adjusts to SUPER SUNSET FLIP GERMAN SUPLEX!! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Leyla is shocked! Leyla won’t stop, though, she puts Skye in a drop zone again and goes back up. But Skye hits ropes to trip Leyla up! SUPERKICK! Skye roars, and she brings Leyla up for a fireman’s carry! T K O!!

Roll back, DRAGON SLEEPER!! Leyla TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Skye has a smug smile as she comes out on top. But who will she be aiming for after AEW passes through the Gateway City?

 

Six Man Tag: Kazuchika Okada & The Young Bucks VS PAC & FTR!

Collision’s main event is like an extra large Dynasty appetizer! The Rainmaker and the Bastard will battle for the AEW Continental Championship while Matthew & Nicholas will battle Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood for the AEW World Tag Team Championships!

PLAY BY PLAY

Jon Moxley heads to the ring!

Indianapolis, Indiana fires up as the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion walks in from the back of the crowd! The Maniac shocked the world when he defeated Tetsuya Naito in Chicago and added NJPW’s top prize to his already incredible list of accolades. Moxley goes to the ring, gets the mic, and the fans chant for him as he says, “One of the first championships I ever won, y’know, Salvation Army Community Center at Fountain Square right here in Indianapolis.” The fans cheer that! Moxley continues by saying even back then 20 years ago, he was swimming up stream, never had help.

In fact, a lot of people tired to tell him what he can and can’t do, what he can and can’t accomplish. His words to those people now is the same as back then: kiss his ass and watch him! Watch as he climbs mountain after mountain after mountain. Because being great is not about what others say, it’s about what’s inside. Now, if you didn’t know, this is THE IWGP World Heavyweight Championship. The fans chant “You Deserve It!” and Moxley say this title is steeped in history, illustrious to the extreme, and he has been chasing it for five years. Five years of pain, heartache, wins and losses, pints of sweat and blood, thousands of miles across the ocean.

Five years ago, people said Moxley holding this title, and live on American TV, was impossible. But it wasn’t impossible. Not if they knew what was inside Moxley. That is what this is all about. When your back is against he wall, how deep can you dig? When you feel you have nothing left, choking on your own blood, how deep are you willing to dig and how far are you willing to go? Are you willing to dare to show the world how great you are? THAT is what AEW is about! The fans cheer that, too! Moxley says this brings him to his point: The Don Callis Family. The fans boo now, but Moxley continues.

There are very talented individuals in league with Don Callis. Don Callis is a creep. The fans cheer that! Moxley says he has no time for Callis, but he is feeding these guys lies and those guys are buying it. And then those guys put a hit out and tried to hurt Moxley’s friend and teammate, Bryan Danielson. Now, if you’re putting a target on Bryan’s back, you might as well put one on Moxley’s. You wanna get violent? You wanna be tough guys? Well, you’re welcome to come find Moxley, he’ll be here all night. But he suspects that maybe, he’s not their type. What he could do is run up on them with a tire iron. He could run them over in the parking lot.

But he gets the sense that that wont’ teach the DCF anything. So he’ll pick the biggest, baddest, meanest one of all of ’em, “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, and challenge Hobbs to a match one week from tonight in the main event of Dynamite in Jacksonville, Florida. Hobbs will accept, because in that match, Hobbs will find out just how out of his depths he is stepping to the IWGP World Champion. Because Moxley won’t make it quick or easy. He will drag Hobbs to the deepest waters that there are, and Hobbs will look around and see no shore. When he asks the ref for the rescue, Hobbs will know the difference between him and Moxley, and that Callis is feeding him lies.

Hobbs will know that he, like everyone else in this business, NO ONE can touch Moxley! There are a lot of great wrestlers in this world, but there is and only ever will be ONE Jon Moxley! The fans fire up for that, but will Hobbs survive the homecoming at Daily’s Place?

 

Mercedes Mone speaks.

“Last week, somebody attacked me in the dark because they were too afraid to face me in the light. But as the CEO, I always get right back up. And as the CEO, I can’t wait to pay back that b*tch that attacked me last week. Lights off, huh? That sounds a little too familiar, Julia Hart.” Mercedes didn’t think Julia was the kind to be a coward. Or maybe, it was someone who wants us to think it’s Julia? Maybe it’s someone who doesn’t wanna face Mercedes when she’s healthy. Either way, Mercedes puts the entire division on notice, and she will watch that Mixed Tag Match. But remember this: There’s a price to pay when you mess with Mone.

 

Mixed Tag Match: Adam “Edge” Copeland & Willow Nightingale VS Brody King & Julia Hart!

Speaking of that Mixed Tag, Dynamite is about to get Rated R as the TNT Champion and the Babe with the Power are stepping to the King of Death and the TBS Champion! Will Copeland & Willow have the edge going into Dynasty? Or will even now, The House Always Win?

Wait! Willow is down and out! A medic checks her but she says she’s fine. Kris Statlander & Stokely Hathaway aren’t so sure, but there is Dynasty to think about. And then the lights go out in the arena! And when they come back up, surprise! Brody is in the ring and he CLOBBERS Edge! Julia laughs from the stage as Brody TOSSES Edge out. The fans hoot and bark as Brody whips Edge hard into the barriers! Brody CHOPS Edge, stalks him, then whips him into more barriers! Brody makes Edge take a seat, fires off forearms, then hoots as he gets space. The fans hoot along and Brody comes back, to CROSSBODY Edge against the LEDs!

Brody stands, the ref reprimands but this isn’t even a match yet! Did the House just take out their enemies in quick fashion? Edge crawls towards the ring, he isn’t gonna let the House have their way! Edge drags himself up to the apron and into the ring, and the fans fire up as the bell rings! Brody runs up to SPLASH in the corner! Edge falls over, Brody storms around, then Brody drags Edge up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Brody CHOS Edge, has him on ropes, and CHOKES him on the ropes! The ref counts, Brody steps back, and Julia gets a cheap shot in! Then she CHOKES Edge while the ref is still busy with Brody! Brody storms up on Edge, suplexes high and hard, then stalks up behind Edge. Brody drags Edge up, ROCKS him, and Edge ends up in a corner. Brody digs his boots in, the ref counts again, but Brody lets off at 4. Edge sits down in the corner and Brody gives him scuffing, toying kicks. Brody lets off to stand Edge up, and CHOP him down! Brody CHOKES Edge on ropes again, but lets off as the ref counts.

Edge sputters, Brody drags him around, and Brody whips Edge hard into the corner! Edge falls, Brody storms up and stands on Edge’s face, but the ref counts. Brody steps back, Edge goes to the apron, but Julia is there to CHOKE him! The ref is none the wiser and Julia mocks the fans. Brody has Edge under ropes for the GUILLOTINE CATAPULT! Brody drags Edge back up, and CHOPS him to a corner. Brody CHOPS again, Dynamite returns to single picture, and Brody hoists Edge up top. Brody climbs up to rain down fists! Brody only goes to three before he hauls Edge up, but Edge fights the superplex!

The fans fire up as Edge and Brody trade body shots. Edge then HEADBUTTS away on Brody, and BITES his forehead! Edge DECKS Brody off the corner, then adjusts. Brody stands, Edge FLYING LARIATS! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! Julia coaches Brody, he sits up to fire a forearm! Edge fires back, they go shot for shot, then Brody CHOPS! Edge CHOPS! They CHOP, throw forearms, and the fans fire up behind Edge! Edge kicks and IMP- NO, Brody throws him away! Edge dodges the lariat to LARIAT! Brody stays up so Edge runs up to clothesline in a corner! And again! And again!

Edge fires shots, runs side to side, then BOOTS Brody! The fans fire up as Brody leans on the ropes! Edge runs again, for another BOOT! Edge huffs and puffs and he brings Brody around, IMPALER! Cover, TWO! Brody is still in this and Julia coaches him up. Edge stays on Brody, but Brody TOSSES him to the corner! Edge BOOTS back, goes up, and FLYING BLOCKBUSTERS! The fans fire up as Edge rises, and he has a wild look as he goes to the corner. Edge runs in, but Brody LARIATS him down! Julia is fired up, and Brody drags Edge to a corner. Brody storms around as he hoots, then he runs corner to corner to CANNONBALL but only gets buckles!

The fans fire up as Edge and Brody are both down! Julia coaches Brody, the fans rally, and here comes Willow! Taped up as she is, Willow’s on the corner! Brody drags Edge up and in, but Edge reaches out! Willow tags in! She goes up and she CROSSBODIES Brody! Then she chases after Julia! Julia says no no no, but then Edge SPEARS Brody! Willow hoots now, the fans join in, and Willow gives Brody a CANNONBALL! Julia runs in with a chain! CHAIN PUNCH!! The fans boo as Julia says the House Always Wins! Edge LARIATS Brody out of the ring, but Julia clamps on the HARTLESS LOCK! Willow is OUT, The House of Black wins!

Winners: Brody King & Julia Hart, by submission

The Princess of the Black Throne made sure to have an ace up her sleeve to take this one from Willow! But wait! Here comes Mone! And she has a chair! Julia laughs as she slips away, taking her title with her. The House of Black won tonight, but will they establish their Dynasty?

As for Mone and Willow, well Mone still has the chair and is considering her options. Edge slides back in, so Mone stands down. Edge shakes Mone’s hand, long time no see. Mone still wants to go Double or Nothing, but will she be facing the Keeper of Secrets? Or will it be a long awaited rematch with the Babe with the Power?

 

Backstage interview with Samoa Joe.

Renee Paquette says we’re just four days away from Dynasty, a PPV where the AEW World Championship will be on the line 1v1, Samoa Joe VS Swerve Strickland. Renee says that in this situation, just Joe and Swerve, how does Joe see Swerve as an opponent? Well, first, Joe viewed Swerve as a worthy adversary. Someone who some day might be a great champion. But for now, he’s just a nuisance. Joe says Swerve is not someone who has overwhelming speed, strength, size, no. He’s just someone who keeps standing back up after getting knocked down. No matter how many times Joe puts Swerve in the dirt, Swerve just gets back up.

To Joe, that doesn’t seem like a prerequisite to becoming a champion, that’s a punching bag. Then Renee wants to run this back to last week on Dynamite. Joe is always calm, cool, collected and in the driver’s seat. But after last week, Swerve getting his shot in on Joe, then Swerve & Nana holding up the AEW World Championship, Joe’s reaction… Walk us through what that was. As expected, Joe was worried his property was in the hands of someone who will never possess it. That maybe this belt would need to be disinfected before it could be TV ready. You don’t know where Nana’s been!

As for Swerve, Joe will focus on his track record and what he represents. It seems that with every title Swerve has challenged for, he has come up short. Is that not right? Seems like Swerve’s a choke artist. Every championship, every opportunity, every time he tries, he comes just so close, then swerves off target. History will repeat itself at Dynasty, as at Dynasty, Joe will do what he always does, and that is destroy the opposition, cement his legacy as the greatest AEW World Champion of all time, and for Swerve, “my friend, unfortunately you are a choke artist. And come Dynasty, you won’t have to worry about it. I’ll be the one choking you out instead.”

The One True King of Wrestling has spoken, but will he still end up dethroned by The Realest?

 

AEW takes a closer look at The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4.

But as the highlights of ladder matches and of All In London 2023 play, the Bucks themselves interrupt. This package sucks, who edited this together? Cut, cut! The video stops, and we cut to gorilla. Matthew Jackson “apologizes” to FTR, but tonight’s episode is already running short on time, so they gotta bump this from the show. But Matthew promises, the full package will go on social media. And Nicholas sure hopes FTR is watching, because they’re about to beat their friends’ asses in a really cool Six Man Tag. And yeah, it’s a tune-up for Dynasty! A ladder match for the tag titles? Are you kidding? The Bucks perfected that match!

And the Bucks will then become AEW’s first-ever THREE TIME World Tag Team Champions. But what about tonight, Rainmaker? Kazuchika Okada says, “Hey, Pac! You will not make it to Dynasty. You are a dead man!” Cue the music, time for the badass entrance using that elevator thing. But will the New Elite really be rolling into St. Louis with momentum? Or are they underestimating the Top Guys’ allies?

Six Man Tag: Kazuchika Okada & The Young Bucks VS PAC, Penta El Zero Miedo & Daniel Garcia!

The trios sort out and The Rainmaker starts against The Bastard as a preview of their Continental Championship match. The fans rally behind Pac, but then The Bucks CLOBBER him, and Okada BLASTS Pac’s corner! The fans boo as The Elite stomps away on Pac, then the Bucks stand down. Okada tags Nick, he storms up but Pac SOBATS! KICKS! And SOBATS! Pac runs to SHOTGUN BOOT! The fans fire up and Pac tags Penta. They double whip, double hip toss, then they coordinate, STANDING MOONSAULT LEG DROP COMBO! Cover, TWO! Penta runs up to KICK Nick in the leg! The fans rally with “CERO! MIEDO!” as Penta has Nick on ropes.

Penta whips, Nick reverses, and Matt gets a cheap shot! Penta GAMANGIRIS Matt, but Okada BOOTS Penta down! The fans boo as Nick distracted the ref the entire time. Nick stomps Penta, tags Matt, and Matt rains down fists! The fans boo, but Matt tags Nick back in. The Bucks double whip Penta to a corner, then Matt runs in, only for Penta to TOSS him out! Nick runs up, Penta makes him handstand on the corner, and Penta SUPERKICKS! Nick staggers, Penta tags Garcia! Garcia rallies on Nick, wrenches and clinches, HALF HATCH! The fans fire up as Garcia clotheslines in a corner! Garcia goes up, and he rains down fists!

The fans count all the way to nine, then Garcia winds up to DO HIS DANCE! Garcia lets off, runs up on Okada and BLASTS him! Garcia LARIATS Nick, whips him to ropes, but Nick reverses.

Nick BLASTS Pac off the apron, Matt YANKS Penta down, and The Elite attacks while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Matt drags Penta up to whip him into railing! Penta tumbles over into the front row! Nick sends Pac into railing, then soaks up the heat. Matt throws hands on Pac, and he mocks Garcia’s dance, too! Okada puts Garcia in the ring for Nick, Matt mocks the front row, and Nick rains down fists on Garcia! Nick goes all the way to nine, so also mock the dance! Nick lets off to tell everyone that’s a FINE! Nick stomps Garcia, kicks him around, then he tags Okada. Okada storms up to CLUB Garcia, then he drags Garcia around.

Garcia grits his teeth, he pie faces  Nick, but Nick drops a knee on Garcia’s back. Matt gets on a mic to talk to Taz, and to also say hi to Excalibur and Tony Schiavone. Nick CHOKES Garcia on ropes, lets off at 4, and he runs up to SHINING WIZARD! Matt keeps doing his own play by play as Nick bumps Garcia off buckles. Dynamite returns to single picture, Okada holds Garcia in place and Nick runs in, but Garcia BOOTS Nick!

Garcia elbows Okada away, CHOPS Nick, repeat! Matt is concerned on “commentary,” Nick runs back in but Garcia sends him into Okada! Matt says to get him, but Nick waistlocks Garcia. Garcia wrenches to SAIDO free! Matt asks for the tag, Nick tags him, and Matt still holds onto the mic as he stomps Garcia! Matt says it’s fine, he’s got this. Matt promises the ref he won’t hit Garcia with the mic. Matt instead talks trash, shouting, “You think you’re better than me, Garcia?! HUH!?” Matt then pie faces Garcia! Matt eggs on “the kid,” dares Garcia to show him the reason they hired him, and Garcia gets up to reel Matt in!

Matt freaks out, saying he’s sorry, they’re good! But Garcia still gives Matt the SAIDO! The fans fire up while Garcia crawls, hot tag to Pac! Pac RAMS into Matt, slingshots up and over then keeps moving to CLOBBER him! And CLOBBER him again! Pac whips, Matt reveres but Pac stops, sidesteps and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Nick runs in, but he also gets a SNAP GERMAN! The Bucks stagger up, Pac climbs a corner, DOUBLE MISSILE DROPKICK! The Bucks bail out, the fans fire up, and Pac goes up a corner! ARIHARA MOONSAULT! Down goes both Bucks and the fans are thunderous! Pac even dares Okada to get some! Okada says he’s not legal, he can’t!

Pac still taunts Okada, but then Matt CLOBBERS Pac from behind! Okada tags in, now he’s legal. Okada then BLASTS Penta, and Nick steps back in. Okada and Nick get Pac up, they double whip him to a corner, then Okada sends Nick in. Pac puts Nick on the apron, Matt’s on the other side, and Okada runs in, DOUBLE GIRI ELBOW COMBO!

CROSSBODY for Okada! Penta runs, SLINGBLADE for Nick! SLINGBLADE for Matt!

Then Garcia reels Nick in, TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Matt superkick feints to DDT Garcia! Pac is up, he HOTSHOTS Matt, then slingshots to CUTTER! The fans are thunderous as Pac glares at Okada. Pac drags Penta to the corner, tags in, and “This is Awesome!” as we get that title match preview after all!

They open the ladder, stick Garcia inside, and then squeeze it shut on him! Okada & Matt hold Garcia down while Nick climbs up, but Pac returns! Pac runs the New Elite off with that bell hammer! The Bastard already had reason enough to go after them, but will he take out his rage on Okada?

As for The Bucks, they’ve got the momentum and the upper hand going into that Ladder match! Will they be the ones making history? Or will Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood be the ones to establish their Dynasty?

 

Dynamite returns with Taz in the ring.

The Suplex Machine promised Chris Jericho to set up a meeting with Hook, so he’s here as moderator as Lionheart makes his entrance. Jericho joins Taz in the ring, followed by Hook. Taz has the mic while fans chant “HOOK! HOOK!” Taz says he’s just here to make sure things go nice and easy. There have been some issues between both Jericho and Hook. That said, Jericho has the floor. Jericho has the mic to say he’s known Taz for 30 years, and he appreciates Taz getting Hook to come out here. And to Hook, Jericho thanks him for coming out here. Jericho just wants to clear up some things.

The reason Jericho pulled Hook off the apron last week was not to mess with Shibata. Shibata ended up collateral damage. Jericho just wanted to get Hook’s attention and let him know it felt like Hook wasn’t listening to him as much as he should. The fans boo and Hook eats chips while Jericho says he is doing this all for Hook. Some say Jericho’s the greatest of all time at this. Others talk about the learning tree. Jericho says he IS the learning tree. The fans boo more but Jericho wants Hook to think about the people who listened to Jericho’s “perfect parables,” his pearls of wisdom. Every single one of them has gotten to that next level.

MJF, Orange Cassidy, Eddie Kingston, Daniel Garcia, Jon Moxley, Will Ospreay, and so many more! Everyone that has come into the “Jericho Vortex” has come out the other side a better performer, a better wrestler, and to be honest, a better person. That is what Jericho wants for Hook. He wants them to scale to the highest of heights together. They can reach the top of Wizard Mountain so they can both breathe in the rarified air of Jericho and reach the top! Jericho knows he can get Hook there. So what does Hook say? Is he ready to put the animosity aside so he can sit under the brilliant branches of the learning tree?

The fans are booing and saying no. What does Hook say? “No!” The fans cheer and Jericho looks disappointed. What does Hook mean, “no?” Hook says he doesn’t need Jericho’s help. Dude, c’mon. Don’t be stupid. Taz stops Jericho there, but Jericho tells Taz to stop. The fans boo but Jericho says he’s doing what Taz should’ve done 30 years ago and give this kid some proper guidance! Seriously! But this is what Jericho is talking about. He needs to get Hook away from all this dead weight that’s been holding him back his entire life. Taz says Jericho needs to calm down but Jericho says Taz needs to stop.

Jericho again tells Hook that he has had people his whole life telling him how good he is, how he’s a future world champion, including Taz, his father. But Jericho says Hook is not as good as he thinks he is! The fans boo more and Taz speaks up again, only for Jericho to SHOVE him! The fans boo even harder, and now Hook is mad! Hook drops the mic, he storms up to Jericho, and then he SHOVES Jericho into a corner! Hook tells Jericho that he crossed the line. You wanna see how good Hook is? He’ll go another round with him, anytime, anywhere! Now get outta his ring! Jericho says Hook doesn’t mean that, but Hook says it again, get outta his ring!

Hook lets Jericho go and the fans sing “Hey hey hey, Goodbye~!” Jericho slowly takes his leave, trying to smooth things over, but it’s too late for that. When and where will the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil get his hooks into Lionheart?

 

Backstage interview with Swerve Strickland.

Renee now sits down with the #1 contender to the AEW World Championship. In just a matter of days, Swerve’s career could change. Swerve could become the NEW AEW World Champion at Dynasty. In order to do that, he has to beat Joe. We heard from Joe earlier, what is Swerve’s reaction to Joe calling him a “choke artist?” Swerve chuckles at that. He’ll ask back, does Renee agree with Joe that Swerve’s a choke artist? No, she does not. He doesn’t think so, either. Joe talked about Swerve stumbling, title opportunity after opportunity. He isn’t wrong about that. Swerve has stumbled out the gate, stumbling throughout his career.

But guess what? Swerve’s always fallen forward into success. Just in this past year alone, Swerve was put in a coffin, got back up. He got stapled, body thrown into barbed wire, and he got back up. Not but a couple weeks ago, a man punched him in the face with a chain, bloodied him, and Swerve is still here. Swerve always gets back up. That’s his military upbringing, his warrior ethos: never give up, never quit. So Joe, call Swerve whatever you want. Punching bag, choke artist, a parasite, but guess what? This Sunday at Dynasty, he’ll also be calling Swerve the NEW AEW World Champion. “Whose house?”

Renee asks what makes Swerve so confident about Sunday? Swerve thinks about it, and says with all due respect, it isn’t something he should be answering to Renee. He should be saying this to Samoa Joe. Swerve takes off the mic, takes off his jacket and his hat to get up in the camera. Swerve promises to tell Joe this to his face, in that ring, tonight! Swerve storms off, but will Joe bother to meet him out there?

 

Deonna Purrazzo VS Mariah May w/ Toni Storm & Luther!

While The Virtuosa won’t be part of the sequel title picture with the leading lady, she’ll gladly take out the understudy! Will Deonna make sure Mariah can’t help Timeless Toni against Thunder Rosa? Or will Mariah make her mentor proud?

The bell rings and the fans rally as the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Mariah shoves Deonna down. Mariah pulls on Deonna’s hair, they tie up again, and Mariah puts Deonna in the corner. Mariah ROCKS Deonna, whips corner to corner but Deonna reverses. Deonna runs in, blocks a boot, THROWS Mariah by that leg, then runs to KNEE LIFT and RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Roll through, but Mariah scrambles out of the ring! The fans fire up as Storm is there to check on her protege, but Deonna builds speed! Storm gets Mariah out of the way as Deonna baseball slides, and Mariah DECKS Deonna!

Mariah whips Deonna into barriers, Storm taunts the “loser,” then Mariah puts Deonna back in. Deonna swings, Mariah ducks and ROUNDHOUSES! Mariah rams a shoulder in, only to get caught! Deonna drags Mariah out for a DRAPING DDT! Cover, TWO! Mariah goes to a corner, Storm coaches her, but Deonna runs up, Mariah goes up and over, ROCKS Deonna again, then puts Deonna up top. Mariah runs up to STRATUS- NO, Deonna shoves her away! So Mariah SHOVES Deonna to the floor! The fans cheer as Mariah poses, and Storm taunts Deonna again as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref is busy with Mariah, and that lets Storm step on Deonna’s face! Mariah goes out to kick Deonna around, then CHOPS her against the apron. Mariah puts Deonna in, kicks her around, and then drags Deonna up. Mariah runs to SHOTGUN Deonna down! Cover, TWO! Mariah keeps calm, Storm coaches her and Mariah CHOPS Deonna. Mariah puts Deonna in a corner, bumps her off buckles, then digs her boot in. The ref counts, Mariah lets off, but Deonna dodges the chop to CHOP! And CHOP! Mariah knees low, snapmares, then she clamps on a chinlock. Deonna endures, even as Mariah thrashes her around.

Deonna fights up, but Mariah throws her by her hair! The ref reprimands, Mariah “apologizes,” then she kicks Deonna around. Mariah brings Deonna through the ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, then she stalks Deonna to a corner. Mariah fires forearms, stomps a mudhole in, then lets off again. Mariah digs her boot into Deonna, lets off as the ref counts, then whips her corner to corner hard! Mariah runs in, Deonna ELBOWS her back, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Deonna ELBOWS Mariah again, goes up the corner, but Mariah runs up! Deonna BOOTS Mariah, then hits a FLYING KNEE on Mariah’s arm!

Backstage interview with Bullet Club Gold.

Renee is now with the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions, but she has to get the Gunns to stop tapping the mic. This is a very exciting time in AEW as Dynasty is just days away. BCG asked for this time, what is going on? Jay White says it is very exciting but Renee doesn’t seem that excited. This is supposed to be her favorite time of the week! She gets to talk with the who? Bang Bang Gang. Aw c’mon, say it with feeling! Yeah, like this! BANG BANG GANG! The Bang Bang Gang has been having a blast the last couple of months. They did some scissoring, learned new catchphrases, sold new merch, made new friends, got new fans, and the boys even hung out with their old man.

And now everyone can see just how much better off Austin & Colten are without Daddy Ass and with #StepdaddySwitch. And y’know what? They’ll fulfill their destiny at Dynasty! How did this all start? Surprise, surprise, it is all about the gold. They are the ROH Six Man Champs, and Acclaimed have what BCG wants! The Acclaimed are the AEW World Trios Champions! They’ll put it all on the line, #WinnersTakeAll! And then we will see that THE greatest three man unit today is the Bang Bang Gang! And if you ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! Jay White & The Gunns want it all, but will they lose it all in St. Louis?

 

The Acclaimed respond.

Daddy Ass says, “Well. It seems that you three have finally grown a set and showed everybody what your true intensions are, and that’s to get a shot at the championships that we now hold. Well, Jay White, I’ve already beaten the life outta you. And as for those other two, hell, I’ve been beating the hell out of them since they were little kids. You called down the thunder, well now you’ve got it.” Anthony Bowens says, “That’s right, Jay White. You wanna fight? This Sunday on Dynasty, you want us to put the AEW Trios titles on the line? Well guess what? We accept your challenge. So bring your little Ass Boys, bring your big golden bat, because guess what?

“The Scissor King has got a big golden bat of your own, and you can choke on it!” Max Caster says that’s right, “Twinkblade and the Ass Boys. You guys wanna make challenges? Well let us in on the fun, too. Just for old times, let’s run it back! Two on two, Acclaimed and the Ass Boys on Collision this week, and we’re gonna beat your ass, I’ve got no doubts about it! Because…” “EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED!” The stakes have been raised, who will establish their Dynasty in the Zero Hour?

 

Orange Cassidy VS Shane Taylor w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

Trent Beretta turns on Freshly Squeezed and now it’s all falling apart. And who better to kick someone when they’re down than Big Bad Shaney T. Boy? Will Shane rumble, bad man, rumble? Or will Cassidy fight like a man with nothing left to lose?

The bell rings and the fans rally behind Cassidy. But then Ogogo and Moriarty close in. Shane tells his guys it’s fine, he’s got this. Ogogo and Moriarty stand down. Shane eggs Cassidy on about how he took out Shibata. Shane even says Cassidy can give the people what they want and put his hands in the pockets. Cassidy puts his hands up, and then in the pockets! The fans cheer, Cassidy dodges Shane and SHOTGUNS! Shane stays up, Cassidy kips up, then he dodges again! Another SHOTGUN, another kip up, and Cassidy runs to SHOTGUN again! Shane stays up in a corner, but Cassidy runs in. Shane swings, Cassidy ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls, but Shane blocks!

Shane suplexes, Cassidy kicks and flails, but ends up on ropes. Shane hits LONDON TOWER! Cassidy flops out of the ring, Shane distracts the ref, and Moriarty stomps away on Cassidy! Moriarty THROWS Cassidy into barriers, then puts him in the ring. Moriarty acts innocent, and Shane puts Cassidy in the corner. Shane taunts Cassidy, puts his arms around ropes and hands in the pockets. Shane winds up to CHOP! Cassidy sputters as he drops to his knees. Cassidy flops out of the ring again, but the ref tells Moriarty & Ogogo to back off while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cassidy clutches his neck, slowly sits up, but Shane goes out after him. Shane winds up and hushes the fans, only to throw Cassidy into the ring. Shane won’t do what the fans want, and he drags Cassidy up into a corner. Shane wraps the arms around ropes again, tucks them back in the pockets, and then argues with the ref. Shane ROCKS Cassidy, Cassidy flops against ropes, and Shane taunts him while stalking him. Shane puts Cassidy in a corner, talks trash and pie faces, but Cassidy fires haymakers! Cassidy fires off shot after shot, then winds up, but Shane bobs ‘n’ weaves and HEADBUTTS! Cassidy flops out of the ring again!

Moriarty mockingly cheers Cassidy on while Shane goes out to fetch him. Shane puts Cassidy on the apron, and CLUBS him! Shane then goes up to the apron, lines up the shot, APRON LEG DROP! Cassidy sputters as he flounders away, and Shane storms back in after him. Shane taunts Cassidy, and Cassidy “unleashes” body shots. Shane pie faces Cassidy, Cassidy fires more shots, then winds up. Shane encourages the fans to fire up, too, but then Cassidy SUPERKICKS! Shane wobbles, but he DECKS Cassidy! Shane stalks Cassidy to a corner, stands Cassidy up, and Dynamite returns to single picture.

Shane fires off hands, but Cassidy dodges the chop! Cassidy runs in, Shane puts him on the apron, but Cassidy ducks to ROCK Shane back! And bumps him off buckles! ROCK, BUMP, repeat! Cassidy dribbles Shane off the buckles over and over, then lets off as the ref counts. The fans fire up, Cassidy climbs up, but while Shane distracts the ref, Ogogo grabs a foot! Cassidy shakes Ogogo off but Moriarty gets the other foot! Cassidy kicks him away, too, but Shane choke grips! Shane has Cassidy with both hands, but Cassidy throws hands! Shane still holds Cassidy up so Cassidy fires off faster and faster shots!

Shane lets Cassidy go, Cassidy runs to tilt-o-whirl, but Shane blocks the DDT again! Shane suplexes, into STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Shane wobbles, Cassidy runs to DIVE onto Moriarty! Cassidy then DIVES onto Ogogo! Cassidy keeps moving, takes aim, ORANGE- NO, Shane dodges! But Cassidy dodges, only for the SOUTHPAW to hit! Cover, TWO! Cassidy survives, Shane huffs and puffs, and Shane drags Cassidy up. Shane vows to end this, and he tucks Cassidy in, only for Cassidy to fight free! Cassidy tries to Alabama Lift?! Shane’s too big! Shane KNEES Cassidy, but Cassidy ORANGE PUNCHES!! Off comes the elbow pad, Cassidy reloads, ORANGE- HAYMAKER from Shane!

Cassidy wobbles, Shane winds up again, but ORANGE PUNCH!! Cover, Cassidy wins!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

But then Moriarty clamps on a SLEEPER!! The fans boo as Ogogo storms in and unbuttons his sleeves. The fans boo as STP mugs Cassidy! Ogogo shows off the Olympic level left hand, and then Shane says this isn’t it! Get Cassidy up! Ogogo & Moriarty drag Cassidy to his feet, but here comes Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal! But then BLAM, someone hits Daniels with a chair! And BLAM, same for Sydal! IT’S TRENT!!! Trent CHUCKS the chair into Sydal’s face! The fans boo, and Trent is still wearing the shirt, “Trent & Orange Win The Big One.” Trent glares at Cassidy, STP is a bit confused, but the fans tell off #JustTrent.

STP get Cassidy up again, and Shane DECKS Cassidy!! The fans boo harder, but Cassidy is put in the BORDER CITY STRETCH!! Cassidy suffers as Trent leaves. Best Friends no more, but did Trent just watch the end of Orange Cassidy?

 

PROGRAMMING REMINDER for Saturday!

This Saturday, April 20th, the night before Dynasty, it is Collision AND Rampage back-to-back for THREE hours of All Elite Wrestling! Make sure your DVR is set accordingly so you don’t miss a minute of Dynasty Weekend!

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Just 24 hours before all their title matches on Dynasty, Okada & The Young Bucks are back in action against Pac & FTR! Will The New Elite win another trios match? Or will the #TopBastards have momentum going into St. Louis?

 

Roderick Strong speaks.

“Kyle, your comeback was sweet. I swear to you, I smiled and I cried because I was so happy to have you back. But there’s something that you didn’t realize.” Roddy is of course referring to how Kyle could do it on his own, so long as he didn’t get in Roddy’s way. Roddy finishes by saying, “When we step into the ring, I am going to break you, and I am going to end you forever!” Another friendship turned sour all because of pride and greed, but will the Savior of the Backbreaker be Kyle’s doom? Or will there be no End of Heartache when Kyle takes the International Championship away from The Undisputed Kingdom?

 

Will Ospreay VS Claudio Castagnoli!

The Don Callis Family tried to break the Blackpool Combat Club, and they just about did it to Bryan Danielson at the end of Collision last Saturday. Will the Swiss Superman exact some revenge on behalf of the American Dragon? Or will the Aerial Assassin simply sharpen his blade using Claudio’s body?

Dynamite returns as Claudio makes his entrance. Don Callis has magically appeared on commentary because “the golden goose,” “The King of the Bangers,” is here thanks to him. The bell rings and Claudio immediately UPPERCUTS Ospreay to the corner! Claudio drags Ospreay to a cover, TWO!! Claudio keeps the hot start going as he hauls Ospreay up, reels him in, and tucks the arms! RICOLA- NO, Ospreay slips free to ROCK Claudio, whip, but Claudio reverses. Ospreay ducks ‘n’ dodges and RAN- NO, Claudio blocks the rana to pop Ospreay around into a BACKBREAKER! Ospreay clutches his back while fans are torn.

The fans rally for Ospreay as hard as they can, but Claudio stands Ospreay up to ROCK him! Claudio storms up on Ospreay in the corner, throws a body shot, but Ospreay CHOPS in return! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Claudio UPPERCUTS Ospreay down! The fans fire up, Claudio whips Ospreay to a corner, then runs up, into a BOOT! Ospreay goes up to FLYING RANA! Claudio tumbles away, gets up, but Ospreay BOOTS him out of the ring! The fans fire up, Ospreay aims but Claudio moves. No plancha and the fans boo, but Ospreay storms out after Claudio to CHOP him again! Ospreay ROCKS Claudio, but Claudio RAMS Ospreay into barriers!

The fans rally, Claudio RAMS Ospreay into railing! Claudio whips Ospreay at the LED, but Ospreay leaps over! Claudio runs up, but Ospreay ROCKS him first! Ospreay then goes up onto the barrier, to FLYING FOREARM! Down goes Claudio and the fans fire up! Ospreay SMACKS Claudio off aprons, fires shots, then puts Claudio in the ring. Fans sing for “OSPREAY~, OSPREAY OSPREAY OSPREAY~!” as he goes up the apron. Ospreay springboards but Claudio trips him up! Fans boo but Claudio drags Ospreay in, runs side to side, and DOUBLE STOMPS! The fans boo as Claudio stands on Ospreay and stomps around.

The ref reprimands and counts, Claudio steps off at 4, but then DOUBLE STOMPS again! Claudio brings Ospreay up, scoops, and hits a BACKBREAKER! Claudio bends Ospreay back against his knee, but Ospreay endures. Ospreay gets his hands in, throws hands on Claudio and stands up. They trade forearms, the fans rally, and Claudio eggs Ospreay on. Ospreay ROCKS Claudio! Claudio ROCKS Ospreay! Ospreay fires a flurry, but Claudio ROCKS him again! Claudio brings Ospreay around to ROCK him in the back! Claudio eggs Ospreay on, whips, but Ospreay ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl and again, DEJA VU RANA!

The fans fire up as Claudio bails out! Ospreay gets fans to join in “OI! OI! OI!” then he runs up to PLANCHA! But Claudio catches him! APRON BACKBREAKER! Ospreay writhes, Claudio soaks up the heat, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Claudio stomps Ospreay around, drags him up, and then whips him hard into the LED barrier! Claudio leaves Ospreay behind to step into the ring, and he lets the ring count handle this. Ospreay rises, clutches his side and hobbles his way into the ring. Claudio is there to stomp away on him! Claudio drags Ospreay up, Ospreay fires a forearm! Claudio fires back, they throw forearms back and forth again, but then Ospreay snapmares and KICKS Claudio! Claudio gets right up to snapmare and run, to UPPERCUT Ospreay! Cover, ONE!!

Ospreay whips, Claudio reverses but Ospreay handsprings to NEURALIZER KICK!

The fans fire up while both men are down! Callis says he told Ospreay in their strategy meeting that he needs “moves in bunches” to take down Claudio. The standing count starts, but both men stir.

The Aerial Assassin takes down the Swiss Superman in an instant classic! Even Callis says that’s incredible! But wait, Konosuke Takeshita, Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs show up to mug Claudio! The fans boo, but Ospreay is rather surprised by this. Callis takes no responsibility for what his guys are doing, but Takeshita still drags Claudio to the ramp. This is like at the end of Collision! But unlike last time, here comes MOX! The fans fire up as the DCF regroups in the ring, only for Moxley to jump in from the crowd! Moxley fires hands on everyone, but that’s still a 3v1 fight! Hobbs and Fletcher mug Moxley, but he throws Kyle away to fire off with Hobbs!

Claudio is up, he DUMPS Takeshita into the stands! Moxley sends Hobbs running, and now the BCC regroups! Ospreay is still confused and upset and he storms off. Will the #BillyGOAT still get a fair fight with Bryan Danielson at Dynasty? Will Moxley humble Hobbs as part of AEW Homecoming? Well BREAKING NEWS for Collision tomorrow night! Bryan Danielson returns to action alongside Claudio Castagnoli to take on Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita, IN A BUNKHOUSE BRAWL! Will the American Dragon breathe fire and burn down the Don Callis Family all in one weekend?

 

Swerve heads to the ring!

Just as he promised, and with Nana by his side, The Realest is here. He has the music cut to say that this Sunday in St. Louis, the main event of Dynasty, it is Swerve challenging Samoa Joe for the AEW World Championship. The fans chant “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve gets in the ring and says he was asked earlier tonight, how does he believe he’s going to defeat Joe? That answer is simple: remember last week, when he knocked Joe on his ass and had him scurrying like a little b*tch? Joe had fear in his eyes! He was quivering! Swerve was standing there, the title above his head, and it looked mighty good on him.

Joe showed Swerve everything he needed to see. Joe was scared! The fact that Joe knows Swerve’s gonna beat him and win the title. Swerve’s just out here with the people of Indianapolis, he’s just waiting on Joe to come out here so he can say all this to Joe’s face, like a man. So Swerve’s here, Nana’s here, so Joe, bring your Sweet Tooth ass out here! Swerve waits, and here comes Joe! But security stands in the way! This is the man Swerve wants, and he says he just wants to talk, so he can knock Joe’s ass out again! The cluster of Joe and the security guards gets closer and closer, so Swerve goes up and up! Swerve SUPER STOMPS the whole thing apart!!

The fans lose their minds as Swerve stares Joe down! Swerve says he is taking this from Joe, and then the fists fly! Joe whips Swerve into steel steps! Joe puts Swerve in the ring, fetches his belt, and says Swerve’s taking nothing from him! Joe storms into the ring, smirks as Nana checks on Swerve, and then Joe mocks Nana’s dance. Nana turns around and says hold on now! Joe storms up on Nana, but Swerve gets up to BOOT Joe! Swerve aims, for a HOUSE CALL! Joe is down but Swerve goes up! The fans are thunderous, but Joe trips Swerve up! Nana panics as Joe tells Swerve that he is NOT that man!

Joe HEADBUTTS Swerve, tucks him in, and hits the MUSCLE BUSTER!! Joe looms over Swerve, picks up the title, and holds it up high. Will this be the scene at the end of Dynasty? Or will Swerve finally have his moment?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite as the go-home to Dynasty, great escalating of things between Blackpool Combat Club and Don Callis Family. Moxley has a really good opening promo, and he surprisingly calls out Hobbs. Ospreay has an awesome main event with Claudio, and of course Ospreay wins to have momentum going into Dynasty. And I do appreciate that he is against how the Don Callis Family is doing things. They didn’t need to beat up Claudio, he isn’t even part of Dynasty, and now that even backfired as there’s going to be a BIG tag match on Collision as one last go-home to Dynasty. Pretty sure Bryan & Claudio win that so Bryan has momentum, too, making Dynasty’s dream match much more unpredictable.

Good promo from Mercedes Mone, and I like that her hair was colored to match the new Dynamite colors. But also, good detail for her to think how I was thinking, the attack on her could’ve just been Willow making us think it was Julia. Really good Mixed Tag with how someone, apparently Julia, attacked Willow beforehand. It ended up mostly an Edge VS Brody match that way, but good heroic entrance by Willow. But of course the House cuts corners to win, and great save by Mone to run Julia off. This does tease Mone VS Julia but I’m very certain the go-home math says Willow wins the TBS Championship to make Double or Nothing the rematch from the NJPW Strong Women’s title tournament.

Also good stuff in the AEW Women’s World title story as Deonna VS Mariah was a great match. Good win for Deonna, but of course Storm attacks her and that brings out Rosa. Rosa stands tall here, so the math indicates Storm retains. But at the same time, there’s still potential for Storm and Mina Shirakawa to fight over Mariah as opposed to fighting over a title. Or maybe they’ll fight over both? After all, May is Double or Nothing, so it could be a bit of both. Or like, Storm retains the title, but Mina “wins” Mariah to her side, #RoseGold does stuff in AEW or even ROH, and Storm will be without one of her insurance policies.

Great stuff in the story of New Elite. I actually liked The Bucks interrupting the hype package because it started too FTR friendly, and we got a great Six Man Tag. Of course The New Elite beat Pac, Penta & Garcia, but I was kinda hoping FTR was going to make the save to better set up the Six Man Tag I honestly thought we were getting tonight. Pac & FTR VS Okada & Bucks has to go really wonky, though, that’s a lot of go-home math that affects many titles. Meanwhile, Jericho’s face to face with Hook went about as expected in that Jericho ruins it cuz of his ego. Him shoving Taz was the unexpected part but it got Hook mad, and so we’re definitely getting Hook VS Jericho for the FTW Championship at some point.

Good promo from Roddy to hype up his match with Kyle, maybe Kyle has a tune-up match during Collision or Rampage this Saturday so he has momentum going into the match. Great match from Cassidy VS Shane, and while Shane Taylor Promotions interfered a lot, Cassidy winning was of course happening. STP beating him down, and Trent stopping the save was some wild stuff, though. A little surprised no one’s interviewed Trent, or tried and then get shot down by Trent, but him still wearing the “win the big one” shirt kinda implies what broke him. The moment they didn’t win the big one, after all the losses leading up to this, Trent finally gave up on Best Friends.

I am very happy that Acclaimed VS Bang Bang Gang is going to be Winners Take All for the trios titles. Good promos from both sides, but I just hope the winners will bring their AEW and ROH titles to both Collision and ROH TV on Honor Club. We finally got Kyle Fletcher back on ROH TV, the other male champions of ROH need to show up. And uh, for that matter, if Wheeler Yuta is unable to compete at all with his injury, Tony Khan needs to figure out what to do with the ROH Pure Championship. But I think we all know what’s going down with the AEW World Championship. Great promos from both Joe and Swerve, then a great final confrontation to close the night. And per the math, Joe stands tall, meaning Swerve is taking that title at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.9/10
