Right, because it’s WrestleMania! So instead… take a sip… WrestleMania is UP, and #WeWantTheSmoke. Will WrestleMania Weekend bring the swag to close it out?

 

Preshow Match – Natalya VS Liv Morgan!

Now that The Man has beaten the Queen of Spades, the door is open to a new challenger! Will the Queen of Harts or the LIVing Embodiment take a crucial step forward tonight?

The bell rings and Natty circles with Liv. Liv offers a handshake and Natty takes it. To drag Liv into a headlock and takeover! Liv rolls to a cover, ONE and Natty grinds Liv down. Liv headscissors but Natty pops free. The two go again, and Natty gets a wrench to a wristlock to a headlock to a hammerlock. Natty rolls Liv back, ONE and the two stand off. Natty applauds Liv for keeping up with her technical ability. The two circle again and Liv says Natty will regret grinning. They tie up but neither gets control so they separate. Now Natty offers a handshake but Liv swats it away. Natty kicks but Liv catches it, only for Natty to roll and use it to bring Liv down. Liv fights out of the toehold to get a headlock.

Natty pops out to get a waistlock, but Liv reaches down to trip her up. Natty kicks Liv away but Liv goes Matrix to dodge the clothesline! Liv rolls Natty up, TWO! Liv kicks Natty low then whips her to a corner. She tells Natty to “kiss this” before hitting a back elbow in the corner. Liv whips Natty the other way then runs in, but misses!

Dolph Ziggler tries calling Mandy Rose.

After the reveal on this past Friday Night SmackDown, Mandy hasn’t talked to him or Sonya Deville. He doesn’t want her to throw away what they have over a “misunderstanding.” Sonya checks with Dolph, but they can’t get through to her. And even if Mandy reaches out to them, what do they say? Maybe that they were thinking of her best interests? Kayla Braxton comes by and asks them about their plot being revealed. Is this some kind of ambush? WWE is better than this! No comment!

 

The WWE Backstage hosts join the Preshow, again!

But this time, Booker T and Renee Young are joined by Christian! Captain Charisma is GOODT in his turtleneck, and is of course here to talk Randy Orton and Edge. Christian knows Edge very well and says that the thing going for Edge right now is confidence. Orton is oddly to thank for that. Edge survived Orton’s assault after the Royal Rumble, so Edge is emboldened to take the fight back to Orton. While The Viper really is the best, maybe of all time, Edge has “grit.” There is a fire inside Edge after what Orton did to him and Beth Phoenix, and it is now an inferno.

Edge has always had a chip on his shoulder, and has used that chip as motivation. That chip is going to motivate Edge even more now. But Orton is at his peak right now, and Booker says Edge’s ring rust could be the real enemy. Christian is talking from his heart, but Orton is the best today. Orton will bring a lot and will take a lot in this match. Who do you think will be the Last Man Standing tonight?

 

Stephanie McMahon welcomes us back to WrestleMania!

Yes, we’re on the second night of the WWE superstars performing in front of an empty arena, but with all the same energy as if we were all present. Please sit back and enjoy the finale of WrestleMania Weekend!

 

“A battle for the ages” is on the horizon.

Rise as one, or fall as… CUT! That’s starting at the end. You can’t start at the end. Where is the drama? The rising action? Story-telling 101. Back-up to… There! The raging ocean. “The darkest hour… is just before the dawn.” Movie narration, go! No, wait, that’s very cliche. Okay, yes, this is all cliche because it’s pirate theme with a pedestrian knockoff Jack Sparrow. But it’s also so much more. It’s a story of adventure, bravery, maybe even madness. Wait why are there horses and aliens? Give us the heroic montage! The epic effects! Mythical juxtapositions!

Our heroes, our icons, our legends are all here after hundreds of days and nights around the world. This is their quest for gold, glory and immortality! You may think you’ve heard this story before, but forget what you have learned. For fate has a funny way of surprising you. “Tonight, adventure awaits.” But history waits for no one! Both those things collide in one epic weekend! Who conquers the conquerors? Who raises the greatest treasures imaginable? And who stands tall on the Grandest Stage of Them All?

 

WWE Universe, Gronk is back!

The second night of a Mania too big for just one promises to make things even more hype! Gronk knows what Championship Sunday is all about, so let’s get to it!

Backstage interview with Sasha Banks and Bayley.

The Boss and the longest-reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion have had quite the year already. But Bayley is about to face her biggest challenge yet. Yes, Kayla, that’s one way to put it. Another way to put it is “unfair.” This is the most unfair championship match ever. This is a Fatal 5 Elimination Match! Bayley has to beat four other women in one night! Including best friend, Sasha Banks, which Bayley knew Kayla would say. All the sheep are talking about the friends and trying to drive a wedge. But Bayley tells us all that she and Sasha are united. There is nothing that will stand between them. That includes this interview, which is now over.

But as Bayley heads off, Kayla asks Sasha about her chance to be SmackDown Women’s Champion. How badly does Sasha actually want to win? Well, we’ll all just have to watch and see. Sasha smiles before leaving. Is she about to become WWE’s next Grand Slam Champion?

Now Edge climbs the tallest ladder yet to then stand on a platform. Edge LEAPS and ELBOWS Orton through the table!! Both men are down as the count climbs up again! The count passes 5 as both men are slowly rising from the wreckage. They’re both up at 8!

Edge makes his way to Orton and throws more haymakers. Orton flounders about, a cut bleeding from his shoulder. Orton kicks Edge low then clubs him on his back. Edge crawls but Orton drags him up again. Orton drags Edge over but both men stumble and drop to knees. Orton grits his teeth to punch Edge and uppercut him towards a truck bed. He bounces Edge off the tailgate! And again! Edge falls and the count begins again. The count passes 5 once again, but Edge reaches up for the tailgate. Edge uses that to stand at 8, but Orton just bounces him off it again! And again! And again! Orton pushes Edge onto the tailgate then climbs up to join him. They go on top of the truck bed’s cover and then towards the cab.

Orton grins as he has Edge on the truck’s roof. Orton drags Edge around, for a DRAPING DDT!! They break the bed cover and the ref checks on both men! Somehow, both men aren’t completely out of it, but the count will still test what they have left. Orton sits up but both he and Edge writhe and crawl about. Both men stand at 6 and Edge scurries up a stack of road cases. Edge uses those to get to the roof of a truck trailer! Orton laughs as he sees Edge disappear over the top. Orton forces himself to stand and head after Edge. The ref also joins them up there, and Orton stands first. Orton goes as far back as he can on the trailer, and lines up a shot. Edge is on all fours as Orton runs at him, but Edge SPEARS!!

Orton might even be crying in pain now as he and Edge stir. The count passes 5, reaches 8, but Orton is up! Edge wobbles but runs back in, into an RKO!!! Both men are down again, but Orton sits up at 4. Orton hobbles up but Edge is still down. The count reaches 7, Edge flounders a bit, but stands at 9.5, only to fall again! Orton climbs down to rest on the truck’s tailgate. Orton sees what is perhaps the world’s tallest ladder but opts to bring chairs over to the truck trailer. Edge is battling the count as Orton returns. Edge is up at 8 but Orton gives him a SMACK on the back! That chair shot might’ve just broken Edge!

But Orton won’t let it end with that. Orton has a chair under Edge’s head…! He tells Edge this will be over soon, and Edge can go back to his wife daughters. Orton hobbles as he brings up the other chair. The ref says Orton doesn’t have to do this, but Orton raises the chair. Edge catches Orton in an arm-triangle!! Edge squeezes tight and Orton fades! Orton might be out as Edge rests his head on a chair. Edge has the other chair now, and he tells the ref to stop the count. The count was at 5 but Edge wants to end this his way.

Edge hesitates, though, remembering the years he and Orton were as close as brothers. Edge is almost in tears as he brings up the chair over Orton’s head! Con-CHAIR-To!!! The count begins again, and Edge is speechless as he stands over a gasping Orton. The count hits ten, Edge wins!

Winner: Edge

The Rated R Superstar won, but he isn’t celebrating. Edge kneels by a man who was once a friend. Will Orton ever recover from what he and Edge put each other through? Will Edge be able to continue his comeback after what he did?

Firefly Fun House Match: The Fiend VS John Cena!

This story goes back six years, to WrestleMania 30. Bray Wyatt blames John Cena for his descent into madness. Cena says he is going to expose Wyatt as the over-hyped, over-privileged and overestimated embarrassment he is to the WWE. But when Cena steps into Wyatt’s world, will he be able to get out alive? Or will he #LetHimIn?

Cena makes his entrance, but just as he’s about to welcome us to WrestleMania, something happens… Old footage from the past plays, the reel stops and… The Firefly Fun House interrupts. Bray waves and smiles before saying, “There’s another world that exists beyond our comprehension.” This world is where our “darkest urges are no longer kept secret.” It is a world were gods, monsters, demons and angels are your neighbors! “Who are we? And why do we do the things that we do?” Cena, let’s take a real deep look at who you really are! Cena is going to face his most dangerous opponent yet: HIMSELF! Welcome to the Firefly Fun House match! “Abandon all hope, ye who EXIT here.” Bray steps out, and Cena is just… there.

Cena looks around and sees Abby the Witch just staring. Ramblin’ Rabbit pops up and says sup! If he’s looking for Bray, he went through that door. Go on, bro! But be careful~! Cena opens the door, and steps inside the darkness. And this isn’t your everyday darkness. This is… advanced darkness. Cena isn’t sure if there’s anything in here. But then he look sover… and sees Vince Puppet! Does Cena have the ruthless aggression needed to succeed? Show Vince or you’re… FIRED! Cena gets the joke, but moves on. Bray stands in a ring as flashes of the past intermingle with the present. Bray word-for-word copies the open challenge speech Kurt Angle gave that day over a decade ago. The one to answer the open challenge… is John Cena in his Prototype gear!

Cena heads into the ring and gets in Bray’s face, just like he did with Angle. What makes him think he can hang with Bray? RUTHLESS, AGGRESSION! Except Bray ducks the punch. Wow, this worked? And it’s pretty embarrassing. RUTHLESS AGGRESSION! Bray again dodges the haymaker. Bray explains that he’s reliving Cena’s greatest failure. And boy, it sure is embarrassing. Bray sees how Cena almost got fired. RUTHLESS AGGRESSION! You can look but you can’t touch. Hmm, wasn’t that also embarrassing? But Cena is a broken record. Is this what Cena really wants to do with his life? Cena rushes Brya but Bray dodges, and the chase is on! Mercy is the Macho Buzzard and this is Saturday Night’s Main Event! But, it’s Sunday…

Either way, Bray Wyatt says his tag team partner is a physical specimen! It doesn’t matter what little talent you have, it’s about the strength and the size! Johnny LargeMeat has both! Ladies love him, men want to be him, and here he comes! Cena flexes and quotes Randy Savage sayings. You’ll pay for the whole seat but only need the edge! Look at the pythons! Cena pumps and pumps and pumps and pumps! Abby is definitely impressed. Cena overdoes it and now his arms don’t work. He can’t punch Wyatt and Vince Puppet is upset. But what’s Cena gonna do when he realizes that Egomania has been running wild on you?! Bray pushes Cena into his next phase, the Dr. of Thuganomics! #WordLife lives again and returns to the ring.

Cena says he just switches like that in mid-fight? The audience is excited, they went from six to midnight. Oh wait, he can only talk in rhyme, right? Well Bray ain’t taking the limelight. Cena uses rapping to his advantage, and just like Husky Harris, he has weight he can manage. But here’s an idea for the puppet show! Put Cena’s junk in a sock, call it Mr. Suck It, Bro. Bray has been a disappointment since WWE brought him to the dance. He a ho for opportunity, and blows every chance. Ouch. Chances, huh? How dare Cena talk to Bray about chances. Bray has had to earn everything in life, and yet it is still taken from him! But John Cena, he’s the golden goose! Cena’s chances were unlimited, he was untouchable!

But he wasn’t a hero, he was a bully. Cena is a horrible person who takes the weaknesses of others and turns them into jokes. He does anything for fame. So congratulations, he’s the man! “Poor, lonely John Cena.” This is Cena’s last chance. The floor is his. What will he do with it? Cena just gets angry. You in the doctor’s house, getting up in his face? Bray only gets deez nuts up in ya face. Cena runs but Bray teleports away. Bray has a chain for a knuckle duster and he DECKS Cena! Cena is out cold, but the “fun” doesn’t end. Bray is back to being the New Face of Fear. “I was the color red in a world full of black and white. I had the whole world in my hands.” Abigail spoke of this day his entire life. Cena was to be a man of the people.

So why wasn’t he listening?! The fans were with Bray! They wanted Bray! They NEEDED Bray! It was to be a prophecy fulfilled! And yet, it became Bray’s grandest failure. Bray can’t remember what it’s like to feel. But now he rewrites the story. THAT Bray tells Cena to run. Bray corner splashes and dances with Hustle, Loyalty & Respect Cena. Before giving him a kiss, and throwing him away. But this won’t end it, will it? The chair is. Six years ago, Cena made the wrong choice. Fix it now. Cena swings the chair, but Bray is gone again. Wait, now we’re going to WCW Nitro? Bray Bischoff says what he really, REALLY wants to do right now is introduce the coolest guy that ever walked the face of the earth… HOLLYWOOD JOHN CENA!!

Cena is nWo for life and rocking out on the world championship. Vince Puppet says “this is such good s*it!” Too sweet, brother! But Cena SPEARS Bray! And rains down hands! The puppets beg for mercy! Even Mercy! Cena’s rage is being taken out on… Huskis?! And THE FIEND is there. Cena stands, turns around, and gets the MANDIBLE CLAW!! The Fiend smothers Cena, and his words ring in his own ears. The over-hyped, over-valued and over-privileged superstar ends. Because The Fiend hits SISTER ABIGAIL! Mandible claw cover and Bray counts! The Fiend WINS!

Winner: The Fiend, by pinfall

And Cena disappears. Cena may have been talking about himself all along. “LET ME IN!”

Interim host Titus O’Neil is speechless. Has the WWE just lost John Cena forever?

 

WWE World Championship: Brock Lesnar VS Drew McIntyre!

The Royal Rumble was an incredible showcase of two incredible specimens. But while Paul Heyman admits McIntyre is special, the Beast is a beast for a reason. Will Claymore Country’s leader be the one to #SlayTheBeast once and for all?

The introductions are made, with Heyman oddly NOT insisting to give one himself. The belt is raised, the tension mounts, and this battle to prove McIntyre’s worth finally begins!

Lesnar kicks and clubs and rams McIntyre into a corner! He whips but McIntyre reverses, to CLAYMORE!! Cover, TWO!! Lesnar survives one but McIntyre keeps his eyes on him. McIntyre aims again and Heyman warns Lesnar. Lesnsar gets clear, to GERMAN SUPLEX McIntyre! Lesnar wants another, McIntyre holds onto the ropes, but Lesnar breaks his grip! GERMAN SUPLEX! Lesnar stalks up behind McIntyre and CLUBS him down! McIntyre grits his teeth but Lesnar clubs him more, to get the THIRD GERMAN SUPLEX! Heyman says he told McIntyre it’d be quick but VERY painful. Lesnar drags McIntyre up to the fireman’s carry, for the F5!! Cover, ONE?!?! McIntyre surprises Heyman and infuriates Lesnar! But Lesnar looms over McIntyre as McIntyre crawls for ropes.

Lesnar hauls McIntyre up, fireman’s carry and ANOTHER F5!! Cover, TWO!?! Lesnar has no idea what to make of this. Heyman tells Lesnar just to keep bringing the pain, and Lesnar even grins. Lesnar drags McIntyre up from the ropes, for another fireman’s carry, and a THIRD F5!! Cover, TWO!?!? HOW?!? McIntyre is impressing Heyman, but Heyman knows McIntyre can’t do this forever. Lesnar cools off and looms over McIntyre again. McIntyre crawls and Lesnar laughs. “All night long, dude.” Lesnar fireman’s carries but McIntyre slips out! TO CLAYMORE!! McIntyre dares Lesnar to stand, and hits a THIRD CLAYMORE! Heyman panics but McIntyre knows he needs another. Lesnar stands, McIntyre CLAYMORES AGAIN!! Cover, MCINTYRE WINS!!!

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall (NEW WWE World CHampion)

Are we dreaming?! Is this still the Firefly Fun House? NO! It really has happened! McIntyre proves Heyman WRONG! McIntyre isn’t just another b*tch that tried, he’s the Scottish Stud that overcame the unstoppable! We have a NEW reigning, defending, undisputed WWE Heavyweight Champion of the World! DRRREW! MCINTYYYYRE!

 


 

My Thoughts:

The first ever second night of a WrestleMania, and you know what? I really liked it! It’s basically on-par with night one, but with an ending I did NOT think they’d do. I thought that with the world being locked down the way it is, Vince would not want to use such a great moment on Empty Arena Mania. But in the end, Vince did the right thing and gave McIntyre the win!! I am most assuredly marking out right now. There is a valid point that it’s a shame there are no fans to freak out in a good way over this, but at least we got this moment at all. I love this and I hope McIntyre gets to hold onto this title for a long time.

Rhea VS Charlotte was a pretty good opener, but Charlotte is still booked strong as ever. She wins the NXT Women’s Championship to join Shayna in the very exclusive two-time club, and I’m thinking she’s part of an unofficial talent trade. Shayna and now Bianca Belair are on Raw, and Charlotte is back on NXT to help push the idea that it is the third brand, on par with Raw and SmackDown. Bianca’s appearance was exactly as I figured, and that is to go after Zelina Vega in this building feud. The Raw Tag Team Championship match was good but about as expected with Austin Theory still very new to the mix. I’m obviously expecting a Mixed Six or something for the feud. And as I assume Bianca and the Profits win, maybe Bianca can be the next Raw Women’s Championship challenger.

For a filler match that came outta nowhere, Aleister VS Lashley was good. From a story perspective, it actually works that Lana cost Lashley the match by being so demanding. I hope this leads to that kayfabe relationship breaking up. It honestly should have long before this point. And hopefully this means Aleister heads for the WWE United States Championship once Andrade is okay to compete. Otis VS Ziggler was a lot of fun, and Mandy turning Face was a great way to have this go. Mandy stands by Otis, the guy she was into before the interference, and we might even get a mixed tag feud now if Sonya is hanging out with Ziggler.

The WWE 24/7 Championship’s part in the night was pretty good, too. It clearly gave a lot of extra talent some quick airtime while also getting us to where we all knew this was going: Gronk as 24/7 Champion. I can’t wait to see where they go with that. The SmackDown Women’s Championship match was really good, even with Tamina’s early elimination being a bit predictable. I really thought this was going to be Sasha’s way to get the title but maybe Money in the Bank is the route WWE wants to use. And yes, if the commercials are to be believed, MITB is still happening in a month. Though, who knows if it stays that way with WWE having to change filming plans again. Maybe Raw and SmackDown end up only focusing on MITB qualifiers?

The Last Man Standing match was as brutal as it should’ve been. And it went all over the Performance Center, as it should have. And it ended as I’d hoped: with a ConChairTo. I’m sure Edge will have to do a part-time schedule, and the damage done in this match gives a logical reason why he’d need to rest for a few months. But I am wondering where he even goes from here. And lastly, the Firefly Fun House match. It wasn’t as much of an actual match, but it was still great stuff. I loved going through the different phases of Cena’s career, and even referencing the nWo for whatever reason. Well, that might be in reference to internet fans like myself wondering if Cena’s Heel turn would be Hollywood Hulk Hogan 2.0.

And I loved how Cena’s words were basically turned against him. Bray uses Cena’s words to say Cena has been the most over-hyped, over-valued and over-privileged star in the WWE. Cena just disappearing at the end definitely adds some intrigue to things. Will Cena ever return? Will he return as a puppet? I almost thought Cena was going to end up wearing The Fiend’s mask and Bray would be dressed as Cena for a weird role reversal of hero and villain, like what they were going for with the promos. But as I said a few weeks ago, everything bad Cena’s said about Bray has been reverse psychology. Cena put Bray over here and hopefully this means Bray is headed back towards the top. Maybe back to the title? Obviously it was meant to be Roman but now it’s Strowman, and I would love a Strowman-Bray feud for once.

My Score: 8.5/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

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

Shane storms in, talks trash on the fans, then soaks up the heat. Shane drags Hook up, puts him in the corner, and BODY SHOTS! BODY SHOT! HAYMAKER! Hook slumps down in the corner but the fans rally up. Shane waits on Hook, Hook says he’s still in this! Shane stands Hook up to BODY SHOT, BODY SHOT and BODY SHOT! Then Shane ROCKS Hook again, again, and AGAIN! Hook flops back down while Shane storms around. The ref checks with Hook, Shane says to call it already! Hook says no, he’s still in this!

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rocky CHOPS, whips, but Roddy reverses. Rocky reverses back to kick, but Roddy ducks the enzigiri! Rocky REWIND HEEL KICKS! Roddy flops out of the ring and the fans fire up!

Roddy RAMS Rocky, gets him up top, and then climbs up after him. Rocky fights with fists and a HEADBUTT! Rocky then cravats, SUPER SLICED BREAD!! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives again and Rocky is beside himself! The Kingdom is also worried, they rally up for Roddy. The fans rally for Rocky as he goes out to the apron.

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.6/10

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

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

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

OFFICIAL RESULTS

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

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

 

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

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

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

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

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

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

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

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Lee and Shibata circle, Ogogo joins commentary to say the “skull cracking, jaw jacking Gov’nah is back in AEW.” Shibata and Lee clinch, go around, and Shibata waistlocks. Lee moves around, Shibata finds a lateral press, ONE! Shibata has the legs, goes around to cover, ONE! Lee uses a leg guard, gest Shibata’s leg, but Shibata sits on the toehold.

Lee cravats, snapmares, and stomps Shibata!

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

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

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

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

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

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag!

Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

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

 

Pac speaks.

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

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

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

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

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

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

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

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

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine.

Claudio gets a chair and he runs off the DCF, but the damage has been done! Will the American Dragon be able to recover in time for Dynasty?


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
