PLAY BY PLAY

The Inner Circle meets up backstage.

Chris Jericho knows it’s been a rough week for him and the boys, with bruised bodies and egos. But the pep rally will fire them up to get back on top, and they will also find a way to recoop for all the Stadium Stampede Champions shirts they made. But at least it’s only a few boxes. Actually, Le Champion, there’s way more than these three boxes. Well y’see, Carlos from 125th- Carlos is here? No, Ortiz, calm down. Seems his hearing hasn’t returned… But Carlos got the Inner Circle a badass deal on mass producing shirts. “Wow that’s a lot of shirts!” Jericho is getting a headache. Is recovering from the Double or Nothing defeat going to be harder than he thought?

 

Six Man Tag: Matt Hardy & The Young Bucks VS Joey Janela & Private Party!

DAMASCUS and the Bucks of Youth are still feeling WONDERFUL~ after the Stampede Stadium victory, but do not have time to rest on those laurels. The Bad Boy joins forces with Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy, will they be able to win where the Inner Circle could not?

Before the match, Hardy stands with The Elite and with cameras, “because these events must be DOCUMENTED~!” Hardy was proud to wage the Great War with The Elite, but Hangman Page is still feeling awkward. Hangman heads back to the hotel, and Kenny Omega says he’ll go with him to have some milk. Well see you guys later then. But for now, Hardy teams with Matt & Nick Jackson will team together for the first time EVER~! Actually, about that. The Bucks were wondering if they could get a different version of Hardy tonight? Of course! Here comes Team Extreme Hardy! No, no, go further back. Oh okay. This Hardy asks if they want to get wild and be a bunch of #SpotMonkeys. HELL YEAH! Will V1 be the one that helps the Bucks stay strong after the Stadium Stampede?

The teams sort out and we begin with Matt and Quen. They circle and tie up and the crowd rallies up. Matt headlocks, Nick tags in and Quen powers out. Matt slides under and baits Quen into a drop toehold. Nick slingshot leg drops! Kassidy runs in but gets a kick. Matt helps Nick get up for a springboard crossbody! Janela tags in and fires off hands on the Bucks then runs, into double elbows! Tag to Hardy and Hardy runs in, triple attack in the corner! Tag to Nick and we get a BUCKS IN MOTION! Nick gives the V1 but Janela gets away to tag in Kassidy. Kassidy and Nick tie up, Nick headlocks but Kassidy powers out. Nick runs Kassidy over, things speed up and Kassidy hurdles but Nick stops himself. Nick BOOTS Kassidy then DECKS Quen! Nick cartwheels but Kassidy hits the triangle jump hotshot! Quen BOOTS Nick then tags in!

Quen runs, tags in Janela, and huricanranas Nick to the floor! Janela runs and DIVES to add on! Then he adds on a Death Valley Driver! “He’s gonna puuuuke!” Janela puts Nick in and covers, but Matt breaks it up. Janela tags Kassidy and Kassidy drags Nick up. Kassidy elbows Nick on the back then drags him up for a standing cobra twist. Nick endures the abdominal stretch but Kassidy digs his knuckles in! Nick pops out and throws haymakers, but Kassidy waistlociks. Nick switches but Kassidy elbows out. Kassidy kicks and whips Nick, but Nick reverses. Nick sees Silly String coming and DECKS Janela to then go to the apron. Nick SUPERKICKS Quen, then enziguris Kassidy! Nick moonsaults but Janela dodges.

Janela runs at Nick but is sent to the crowd. He ducks the SUPERKICK, and it hits Braxton “The Blade” Sutter! Andy “The Butcher” Williams takes offense and goes after Nick! The ref misses all this because he’s busy with the men in the ring! Matt hurries over as his brother gets mugged by MJF’s mercenaries, and FLIES out to take them down! The rest of the crowd is cheering this on, and Matt helps Nick get back to ringside. Janela is waiting and he DECKS Nick! He rocks Matt, too, then drags Nick up and over. Janela puts Nick on the ramp and Nick gets in the ring.  Nick shoulders back then slingshots for a FACEBUTER! Quen rushes over but Nick monkey flips him to the ramp! Kassidy runs into a shoulder, and a slingshot DESTROYER!! Nick and Private Party are down but the crowd is firing up! Hot tag to Hardy!

Hardy rallies on Kassidy with clotheslines, then whips Kassidy for a back drop! Kassidy staggers up into a SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO! Hardy wants to finish this but Kassidy flounders to ropes. Kassidy turns around, catches the kick but gets a RIGHT! Hardy whips, Kassidy reverses and enziguris! Kassidy springboards, but into a catch! Quen runs in but Hardy kicks and catches him, too! Double DDT! Janela climbs up and lea,s into a SIDE EFFECT! Hardy drags Janela and Kassidy over to join Quen to have them all in the drop zone. Hardy climbs up and MOONSAULTS onto them all! Cover, TWO!! Hardy tags Matt in and Matt drags Kassidy up. Matt throws haymakers and CHOPS over and over, then throat chops! Matt runs but into a kick from Janela!

Janela punches Matt, then Nick, then climbs again. Janela leaps for a double missile dropkick! The Bad Boy fires up and goes to the apron, but Hardy ROCKS him! Janela is stuck in a Tree of Woe, and gets DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! But Private Party DOUBLE FLY! The tope conjilo take the Bucks out, but Quen may have injured himself there. Kassidy checks on Quen but Quen wants him to return to the ring. Hardy grabs Kassidy but Kassidy hits a TORNADO COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO!! Kassidy gets more tips from Quen and goes after Hardy again. Kassidy throws hands, hoists Hardy up, but Matt returns to SUPERKICK! Kassidy flounders down and Matt brings him up. Fireman’s carry and Hardy joins in, elbow drop to MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK! The 450, the MOONSAULT, and the cover! Hardy and the Bucks win!

Winners: Matt Hardy & The Young Bucks, by pinfall

A rather frantic finish, but Hardy is a good sport in helping Quen get to the back. Hopefully for Private Party’s sake, this isn’t as serious as it seems, since they only just returned. But will the Bucks return to the top of the tag team division soon enough?

Wait, Butcher and Blade want payback for earlier! They beat Matt and Nick down as the crowd boos! But wait, who are these two in the truck? Wait, are those who we think they are? Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood, F T R is in A E W!! They storm right to the ring and look at the Bucks. This has been a war of words for years on social media, but FTR is going after the mercs?! They beat down Blade then double whip and CLOBBER Butcher! They drag Blade up for the SPIKE PILEDRIVER! And now they look at the Bucks. The crowd is losing its mind, but Butcher returns! But he gets DOUBLE SUPERKICKS, to SHATTER MACHINE! FTR and the Bucks stare down, but FTR heads out. They made their presence known, so it is only a matter of time. Will it be FTW FTW when they finally throw down with The Bucks?

 

Jon Moxley is here!

And he is still AEW World Champion after overcoming Mr. Brodie Lee in a very brutal match that broke the stage! But he’s not here to fight, he’s heading to commentary. “Well I feel terrible, guys, thank you for asking.” That war at Double or Nothing with the toughest fight to date here. Now out of nowhere, Brian Cage appears and wins the Casino Ladder match to have a title shot. Unexpected but Moxley rolls with the punches. He has a bird’s eye view of Cage’s Dynamite debut!

Brian Cage w/ Taz VS Lee Johnson!

“Who can stop the Path of Cage?” Big Shotty wants to try, but he gets CLOBBERED the moment Cage gets in the ring! Moxley already likes Cage’s style. The bell rings and Cage tosses Johnson to a corner for clotheslines over and over and over! Cage then TOSSES Johnson across the way! The crowd can’t believe what they’re seeing, but QT Marshall can’t believe Allie is standing right next to him. Brandi and Dustin try to get QT to focus on the match but that’s a tall task. Cage runs corner to corner to uppercut, enziguri and GERMAN SUPLEX Johnson the other way! Taz likes what he sees as Cage drags Johnson up. Cage puts one out and lifts, to POWERBOMB, dead lift and BUCKLE BOMB! And then, with a slash of the throat, DRILL CLAW!! Cover, Cage wins!

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

Brutal and abrupt, but that’s nothing new to Moxley. Taz takes to the mic now to address the champion. “Great to see you, man.” Taz respects Mox and how he grinds and grinds and grinds to this success. Mox is the top guy, THE AEW World Champion. But at Fyter Fest, he’ll be dealing with something different. He’ll be dealing with “that.” That’s a Machine! Moxley needs to bring that fight he’s known for, to bring the grit he’s known for, and to bring the heart he’s known for. Because the big man is going to stick his hand in Moxley’s chest and tear that heart out! “Understand something, Mox. That’s Brian Cage, the Machine. Beat him if you can. Survive if he lets you.” Taz busts out the classic line, but Moxley is looking forward to it all. Double or Nothing raised the bar, but will Fyter Fest be the fight of Moxley’s life?

 

Tony Schiavone stands on stage for Britt Baker.

The Dentist has her assistant and make-up artist, Rebel, wheel her out on her “Roll Model” wheelchair. That is because Britt suffered severe injuries to her right knee which kept her out of action at Double or Nothing. Schiavone says it is time for The Rules of Being a Role Model. Britt tells him to read the paper. Right, sorry. The Rules of Being a Role Model. What’s with the Law & Order sound? Britt takes over from here. “Thank you, Tony.” Rule number three is all about Britt. Don’t hurt the Role Model. To be frank, the egregious tandem assault wasn’t an accident. It was in fact a conspiracy against her, and goes far beyond just a match. Exhibit A, it was a 3v1 calculated attack from Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander and Nyla Rose from last week’s tag team match. This was probably in the works for months, or maybe even since day one of AEW.

Britt wants to be clear that she is a close, close personal friend with the TOP TNT Executives! Without Britt, there is no AEW Women’s Division! Flip the paper, Reba. Reba! The next page is Kris Statlander. Being an alien is “a crock of sh*t.” She’s a conspirator. Flip the paper. Hikaru Shida, the NEW AEW Women’s World Champion. She broke Britt’s nose, is a fraudulent champion, and a cheater because she carries that weapon around. Conspirator! Flip the paper. Nyla Rose, the former champion. Britt has seen Nyla come off the top rope hundreds of times with precision and grace. She couldn’t guide herself away from Britt’s leg? Britt thinks not. CONSPIRATOR! Rebel/Reba flips the paper, but there’s no more content. “Get the board.”

Rebel hurries to bring out Britt’s conspiracy board! At the center of it all is referee Aubrey Edwards! Tony, move over! This is the “web of evils,” all centered on the brains of the operation, Madame Aubrey. “Coincidence she just so happens to be around every single time I’m injured?” Concussion: Aubrey. Broken leg: Aubrey! Broken nose: Aubrey… was in the building! The roster has been put on notice. They tried to take her out, but the joke’s on them. Britt will be back in time for All Out! The Role Model rolls herself backstage, but will her “case” against the locker room hold up?

Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.

Before James Marvez can ask about the pep rally, Jericho tells him to shut up with his fat head. Jericho and his guys have better things to do than stand here and talk to him. But yes, the pep rally will be one of the greatest spectacles in AEW history! Pomp and circumstance, cheerleaders, a drum line, lots of presents, and more importantly, the Inner Circle getting back on track after- Wait, what is Orange Cassidy doing passing through? Did he seriously just do that? “See you later, Orange.” The Inner Circle heads out, is Fresh Squeeze about to get pinched?

 

Hikaru Shida VS Christi Jaynes!

The Stardom Samurai slayed the Native Beast and is now THE AEW Women’s World Champion! But can she stay on this hot streak against the Brazilian va-va-voom?

The bell rings and Shida circles with CJ. The crowd chants, “Holy Shida!” but CJ gets upset. They tie up, Shida powers CJ back to the ropes, but the ref calls for the break. Shida backs off and CJ feels offended for some reason. CJ and Shida circle again, and CJ dodges to taunt Shida with her dancing. CJ wants Shida to show her dance moves, and the crowd gets behind that idea. Shida figures why not, and then CJ kicks her legs out! CJ says Shida won’t get to dance, so Shida fires off hands! Shida roars and whips but CJ reverses. Shida holds ropes and throws hands, but CJ blocks and CHOPS back! CJ knuckle locks and springboards to arm-drag! CJ dances a little more and brings Shida up, but Shida slaps and pulls CJ’s hair! CJ pulls hair back, but Shida throws forearms! Shida pulls hair again, and bumps CJ off buckles!

Shida runs corner to corner to KNEE CJ down! Shida drags CJ to the apron and positions her, for a KNEE! The crowd fires up with Shida as she goes back into the ring. Shida drags CJ up, scoops and backbreakers! CJ writhes but Shida drags her around for a camel clutch! CJ endures, reaches, but Shida just throws her down. Shida drags CJ back up, suplexes and floats over, TWO! Shida keeps her cool as she goes up top. CJ stands, runs in and springboards to enziguri Shida down! CJ pulls off her arm bands and climbs up top. CJ leaps for a sunset flip but Shida rolls through, only for CJ to basement capoeria kick! Cover, TWO! Shida survives and CJ thought she had it. CJ runs, springboards and LIONSAULTS but FLOPS! Shida fires up to ROCK CJ with that forearm! Then the BLINDSIDE WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! CJ shocks Shida now but Shida just fires up more! Shida drags CJ back up, FALCON ARROW! Cover, Shida wins!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall

The new champion is successful but any number of contenders will be coming for her now! Will she be able to withstand the challenges of being a champion as Spring gives way to Summer?

AEW goes picture in picture to check in on Omega and Hangman.

The tag team champions are chilling on the couch in the hotel room, probably still watching the show all the same. It’s hard to know what they’re talking about, though, we don’t have audio. But because they’re watching AEW, they realize they’re on TV now. Hangman spots the camera recording them and heads over. He looks right in the camera but it must be small. They decide to just leave it and chill with their drinks. Cheers! Who knows what they’re laughing about now. Hangman seems to offer Omega a stiffer drink than milk, but Omega seems just fine with dairy products. Will they enjoy watching SCU and the Superbad Squad fighting for a chance to fight them?

 

Cody Rhodes heads to the ring!

The INAUGURAL AEW TNT Champion has coach Arn Anderson with him as he joins Tony Schiavone for a special interview. Again, QT struggles to focus with Allie next to him. But Schiavone officially introduces the new champion. It was a big moment for both Cody and for AEW. Cody has a question for Schiavone. Does he know why Tom Brady is Cody’s favorite NFL Quarterback? It’s not because Cody’s from New England. He’s not well-liked in Boston and certainly not welcome in Connecticut. It’s a bit simpler than that. Brady was not the first pick of the draft. But his legacy endured, and the parallels Cody sees that when Tony Khan thinks of AEW, a merit based wrestling company, “naturally he’s gonna want to recruit the best wrestlers in the whole world.” Cody wasn’t actually the first call, or second, or even third. But that doesn’t bother Cody. If there is a tinge of that, it is absolved by the fact he is the very first champion of America’s greatest network.

But that’s the thing. If you think Cody’s story is one of nepotism, favoritism or things like that, think again. Cody’s story is of a 21-year-old who got called up, barely knowing how to hit the ropes, which Brandi knows. He took his bumps, paid his dues, and grew up in front of the world. He didn’t get the dominant genes. Dustin has the Dusty, Cody is not the Simba of this tale. But respectfully, Cody has something better. Back home, he has “this mean ol’ mom. This little Cuban lady, Michelle.” A broken ankle but standing up on it. Mom taught Cody about grit and determination. You could have all the talent in the world and shove it up your ass if you don’t work hard. Cody will out run you, out dog you, outlast you and out work you. If you’re someone who is critical of Cody bell to bell, then judge him by what he does next. Cody is going to cut a schedule like no one before. It is official right here, that he will be a fighting champion. It is an OPEN CHALLENGE!

Now, a little aside to those watching at home. We are still in this pandemic era. Wrestling is without its one true greatest asset: the fans. But you give us two hours of your time, you bought the PPV en masse, blowing away projections. It is Cody’s obligation to give us the best back. Follow Cody, because this is where the fun begins. The TNT Champion will be the workhorse of AEW, and that starts next week! Who wins that big battle royal for the first shot?

 

SoCal Uncensored VS The Superbad Squad!

Yes, Best Friends won their own title shot at Double or Nothing, but that check will be cashed at Fyter Fest. The position of AEW World Tag Team Champion for that match is still subject to change! Will the Cowboy and the Cleaner have to worry about Frankie Kazarian and Scorpio Sky? Or will it be Kip Sabian and Jimmy Havoc that punch their tickets to the next big show?

Before the bell, Havoc and Kip both attack SCU! Usually it’s just Havoc who does this but it seems Kip finally gets why he does it. They beat SCU down then throw Scorpio out. Kip has Kaz and Havoc helps out. They double whip but Kaz crisscrosses them into each other! Scorpio drags Havoc out and throws him to a post! The bell rings and Kaz CLOBBERS Kip! The crowd is on SCU’s side as Kaz drags Kip up to wrench. Tag to Scorpio and SCU double whip Kip. They double forearm Kip down then Scorpio drags Kip around for a BIG backbreaker! Cover, TWO! Scorpio keeps his cool and drags Kip up. Tag to Kaz and SCU whips again. Scorpio ducks to send Kip into Kaz’s windmill kick! Cover, TWO!

Kaz drags Kip up but Kip jawbreakers free! Havoc tags in but runs into an arm-drag! Kaz grinds Havoc down and drops knees on the arm. Havoc fights his way up but Kaz hammerlocks. Havoc reaches for ropes but Kaz wrenches and brings him away. Tag to Scorpio and Scorpio goes up to drop ax handles. Scorpio snapmares and dropkicks! Cover, ONE! Scorpio brings Havoc up to wrench then tags Kaz back in. Kaz hops up and leaps to ax handle! Kaz wrenches Havoc but Havoc pushes him to the ropes. Havoc smothers Kaz but lets up at 4, to hit low! Havoc whips but Kaz holds ropes! Kaz drop toeholds Havoc, Scorpio kicks Havoc away, Kaz GERMAN SUPLEXES! Cover, TWO! Kaz gets the crowd fired up for SCU as he throws hands on Havoc in a corner.

Kaz whips corner to corner, Havoc reverses, but Kaz dodges. Kip tries but misses with his ambush and Kaz ROCKS him back! Havoc waistlocks but Kaz standing switches. O’Conner roll, TWO into Kip’s enziguri! Havoc rolls Kaz, ONE! Havoc rains down rights on Kaz but lets up to tag in Kip. The squad double whips and Scorpio misses a tag. Kip gives Kaz the atomic drop, Havoc runs and shotgun boots Kaz down! Kip jackknife covers, TWO! Kip drags Kaz up to throw hands and Kaz staggers to ropes. Kip keeps on Kaz and wrenches to tag in Havoc. Kip trips Kaz and Havoc eggs Scorpio on. The ref keeps Scorpio back, so the catapult into the eye poke goes unseen! Havoc grabs Kaz for a sit-down and cover, TWO!

Havoc fish hooks Kaz but the ref reprimands. Havoc drops elbows and then brings him back up. Tag to Kip and the squad mugs Kaz in their corner. Kip whips and elbows Kaz down, covers, ONE! Kip grows frustrated but he kicks Kaz back. Kaz CHOPS but Kip kicks and forearms away! Kip clubs with frustration and tags in Havoc. Havoc snapmares and fish hooks Kaz more as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Kip grinds Kaz down in a chinlock. Kaz endures as the crowd rallies up for him. Kaz fights up and fights back with elbows, but Kip throws him down for stomps! Kip drags Kaz back up to tag in Havoc. The squad mugs Kaz more then Havoc snapmares and scrapes his soles on Kaz’s face! Tag back to Kip and Havoc CHOPS Kaz. Havoc whips Kip in but Kaz elbows! Kaz boots Havoc, dodges Kip and shoulders back in. Kaz slingshots, rolls and hot tags Scorpio! Scorpio rallies on the squad, and gives Kip a belly2belly! Havoc runs in, misses and gets a dropkick! Scorpio whips Kip to a corner then runs in for a big kick! Scorpio slingshots for the CUTTER! DRAGON SLEEPER! Havoc runs in to ROCK Scorpio! The ref reprimands but the damage is done.

Kip tags in Havoc but Scorpio CHOPS and whips! Havoc reverses, but runs into a boot! Scorpio hops up but Havoc SHORYUKENS! Havoc fireman’s carries for a rolling Death Valley! Tag to Kip and he goes up top for a Superbad DOUBLE STOMPS! Cover, TWO!! Scorpio survives but Havoc tags back in. Kip dropkicks at Kaz but Kaz dodges! Kaz slingshots to guillotine leg drop Kip! Havoc drags Scorpio up but Scorpio escapes the scoop. Scorpio shoves and uppercuts Havoc in the corner then tags in Kaz. SCU coordinates, pop-up satellite DDT! Cover, TWO!! Kaz keeps his cool and drags Havoc up at the apron. Havoc swings but Kaz rocks him. Kaz slingshots Havoc in for a CUTTER! Cover, but Kaz sees Kip coming, so he moves and lets Kip’s senton squash Havoc! Kaz throws Kip out and tags Scorpio back in.

SCU brings Havoc up to finish this! Underhooks but Penelope Ford grabs at Kaz! Havoc escapes Scorpio’s Gory Special and Kip clobbers Kaz! Havoc ROCKS Scorpio, and Kip runs in, SHOTGUN DROPKICK MICHINOKU! Cover, the Superbad Squad wins!!

Winner: The Superbad Squad, by pinfall

Ford applauds but everyone knows she had a part to play in this. Will she and the squad snatch the AEW World Tag Team Championships away from Hangman and Omega?

 

AEW hears from MJF.

“You know my name. You damn sure know what I’m capable of. In that ring, I am perfection. And on the microphone, mwah! Ci magnifique!” MJF is the breakout star of AEW, and he didn’t have to come from another place to get that handle. To top it all off, he is undefeated for… carry the one… Oh yeah! Over a year! So it’s a bit perplexing to him that he has yet to have a title shot anywhere in AEW! Maybe someone in the office doesn’t like him. So when that same certain someone was holding a battle royal for his brand new TNT title, MJF figured, “Why not make sure that certain someone gets good competition?” And Wardlow will be the insurance policy. If they end up the final two, Ward-Dog knows. But- BUT NOTHING!! MJF and Wardlow glare down, but MJF plays it off like it was a joke. MJF will see his muscular sidekick out there, but will the plan really go how MJF wants it?

 

AEW TNT Championship #1 Contender Battle Royal!

Cody Rhodes will gladly take on all comers, but the line will form behind the man left in the ring at the end of the night! Maxwell Jacob Friedman feels like he’s a shoe-in, but did he just stick his foot in his mouth with that message just a moment ago? We find out, after the break.

AEW returns and Colt Cabana finishes up his entrance. He, MJF and Wardlow stand with death dealer Luther, Peter Avalon, Brandon Cutler, Sonny Kiss, Christopher Daniels, and all three members of Jurassic Express. The next entrant is… Wait a minute, that’s Billy Gunn’s music! The Ass Man hurries out from behind the barriers to get in the ring! Luther wants after him already so the ref has no choice but to ring the bell! Wait, there are still more entrants coming! Orange Cassidy heads out slowly, but that might be to his advantage as everyone else is brawling. Kiss clubs Daniels, Wardlow protects MJF from Cutler and Jungle Boy, and Luchasaurus goes after Avalon. But wait! Proud ‘n’ Powerful, Santana and Ortiz, ambush Cassidy! That kind of stuff happens to The Sloth too much these days…

The refs tell PNP to stop but they shout back. The other entrants don’t even really notice as PNP dump Cassidy off the ramp. JB and Stunt work together on Avalon but Luther goes after Stunt. PNP leaves while Cutler goes after Gunn and Cabana. Stunt fights back against Luther then runs, into a pop-up knee! Luchasaurus saw that and choke grips Luther! Luther fights him off then grabs Stunt to TOSS him! Luchasaurus ROUNDHOUSES Luther, and choke grips, to CHOKE SLAM and ELIMINATE Luther! Jurassic Express high-fives over that one, but then Stunt tries to turn on Luchasaurus? He can’t even lift Luchasaurus’ leg, let alone the rest of him. MJF goes after Kiss but Kiss goes Matrix to huricanrana! Kis runs corner to corner to handspring and SLAP MJF! But Wardlow attacks, tosses and ELIMINATES Kiss! There’s that insurance policy at work.

MJF slips out the bottom just to go after Kiss more! The refs reprimand but MJF does what he wants. MJF returns to th ering and swaggers about. He uses Wardlow as a shield from… Stunt? Daniels goes after Wardlow but Wardlow knees away on Daniels. Cabana helps Daniels but MJF steps closer. Cabana looks at MJF now that there’s no shield in the way. Cabana throws hands on MJF! Cabana sees Gunn coming and dodges to jab, jab and jab! Flip, flip ‘n’ fly, BIONIC ELBOW! Gunn is in a corner but Cabana goes after MJF. MJF kicks low then whips but Cabana goes up, under and gives Gunn the Flying Apple! But Gunn catches Cabana and throws him out to ELIMINATE him! Cabana didn’t see that coming. Wait, is that Dark Order’s campaign manager? He’s trying to recruit Cabana!

Gunn ROCKS Avalon while Jurassic Express regroups. Daniels brawls with Cutler while MJF hides behind Wardlow again. Gunn clubs JB and Luchasaurus goes after Avalon. Gunn whips JB into buckles but Stunt goes to save his friend. Stunt throws fast hands but Gunn pushes him away. Wait, did Cabana actually take that Dark Order flyer?! AEW goes picture in picture as all this continues.

Wardlow and MJF go after Daniels together while Gunn is after JB at the apron. Luchasaurus drags Avalon up while JB holds on. Cutler comes over but Gunn goes after him now. Luchasaurus ROCKS Avalon while MJF grinds his boots into Daniels. Gunn, Cutler and Jungle Boy fight in one corner while Stunt stomps Avalon in another. Cutler tumbles but manages to keep his feet off the ground! Stunt again foolishly tries to turn on Luchasaurus. Avalon tries to lift Gunn but Gunn clubs him away. Gunn bumps JB off buckles but JB holds on to the ropes. Cutler and Avalon encounter each other, bringing up the beef from Dark about who is the worst of AEW! They argue and puff up, and then Cutler scoops Avalon! Avalon slips out and tries to toss Cutler but Cutler holds the ropes. Cutler fights Avalon off then baits him in to toss him over. Avalon holds on but Cutler runs, only for his boot to get caught up on the ropes!

Avalon and Cutler glare at each other despite the pain. They brawl while crotched! They go fast and furious, and end up flopping to the apron together. Avalon chokes Cutler but Cutler chokes Avalon! They teeter on the edge together, and both men reach for the ropes. They both slap at each other’s hands, and they BOTH fall! Cutler and Avalon ELIMINATE themselves! Uncanny! Meanwhile, Wardlow and MJF mug Daniels and Gunn clubs JB while Luchasaurus tries to talk some sense into Stunt. Gunn throws JB to the corner but JB elbows back! JB fires off forearms on Gunn but Gunn knees low and hits the FAMOUSER! And then Wardlow tackles Gunn! Gunn shoves Wardlow away, only for Luchasaurus to corner splash him! Luchasaurus turns around for Wardlow to LARIAT him inside-out!

AEW returns to single picture as Stunt leaps at Wardlow! Wardlow tanks the missile dropkick and blocks the whip. Wardlow whips Stunt, Stunt slides under and baits Wardlow into the buckles! Stunt enziguris and Daniels knees Wardlow! Stunt leaps, Daniels catches him, and brings him up to go at the ropes. Stunt huricanranas Daniels out and ELIMINATES him!! Fun Size gets one! He climbs up top and leaps, but into Wardlow’s arms! Wardlow pops Stunt up but Stunt slips to a sleeper! Wardlow pries Stunt off and TOSSES him onto Daniels, and ELIMINATES him! MJF cheers his muscle on, but Luchasaurus clamps onto MJF! Wardlow saves MJF and the two giants fight! They brawl with titanic fists and a HEADBUTT! ROUNDHOUSE! Choke grip but MJF chop blocks! MJF and Wardlow stomp away but Gunn ROCKS each of them!

Gunn whips but Wardlow reverses, and Gunn collides with Luchasaurus. Neither budges so they both stare down. Luchasaurus runs and collides with Gunn again, but neither moves. Wardlow runs in, they dodge and run him over together! Gunn and Luchasaurus brawl, but they each choke grip! Wardlow and MJF work together to dump and ELIMINATE Luchasaurus and Gunn! The final three are MJF, Wardlow and Jungle Boy! Of course, that translates to a 2v1- No wait! Orange Cassidy crawls in! He was never in until now so he’s part of a final four! MJF and Wardlow mug JB but Cassidy puts on the sunglasses. MJF sees Cassidy, and Cassidy “shoves” him. MJF shoves Cassidy, then sicks Wardlow on him. Wardlow drags Cassidy up and MJF has thy Dynamite Diamond Ring at the ready! MJF swings but Cassidy moves, and the ring punch ROCKS Wardlow!

Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets, dodges MJF, and JB TOSSES and ELIMINATES MJF!! That should shut him up for a minute. Then Cassidy and JB dump and ELIMINATE Wardlow!! The crowd trolls the already furious MJF and Wardlow with “Hey, hey, hey! Good-bye~!” The final two are Cassidy and JB, and things speed up! They hurdle, leap and run. JB ends up on the apron but shoulders in. JB slingshots and whips but Cassidy skins the cat with one hand! Cassidy huricanranas JB, JB returns, but Cassidy dodges the lariat to SUPER PUNCH! Cassidy keeps moving, ANOTHER SUPER PUNCH! JB is down but the crowd rallies up. Cassidy whips JB but JB rebounds to LARIAT! Cassidy flounders but JB runs, huricanrana! JB ELIMINATES Cassidy and WINS!!

Winner: Jungle Boy (will challenge for the AEW TNT Championship)

Incredible! Jungle Jack Perry has always been close, but now he has the biggest opportunity in his career to date! Will JB shock the world and become the second-ever TNT Champion?

 

It’s the Inner Circle Pep Rally!

The Inner Circle cheerleaders are on stage with the drum corps, giving a special performance while AEW is picture in picture. After all that, the cheer squad helps welcome… Vickie Guerrero!? “Are you kidding me?!” She didn’t like her lower third talking about ear plugs… But Vickie announces the official start to the pep rally! And she introduces the Inner Circle themselves. Jake Hager leads the way, with Santana, Ortiz, and Sammy Guevara in two. Sammy struggles to carry his presents and his crutches at the same time. But last but not least, Chris Jericho heads to the ring.

Jericho grabs a mic to say, “Welcome to the Inner Circle Pep Rally!” It has been a rough time, but they will band together like “five sexy phoenixes” and rise from the ashes! They’re nice guys, you know. This pep rally isn’t just for them. It’s for the crowd, too! They have official Stadium Stampede merchandise! They give away the shirts for free because we know they have thousands left over. Wait, that guy is throwing them back? That’s not cool! Sammy calms Jericho and Ortiz down and says that while they didn’t win, they did do something. They participated, baby! Sammy got them trophies! Well Jericho appreciates the sentiment. Why do they say, “King of Dad Jokes,” though? Well with the pandemic going, it was hard to find good trophies. Understandable.

Santana steps up and he got a “New Yorican” gift basket. Chopped-cheese for Ortiz, Vick’s vaporub for Sammy, and discount Timberlands for Hager. Wow, the Vick’s is strong. But best for last, Jericho gets to have a picture of Marc Anthony! That’s Jericho’s hero! Muy bueno, gracias! Jericho has presents, too. Sammy is still hurt, taking one of the worst moves ever. Sammy is too cool for lame crutches, so Jericho got Sammy a scooter! Sammy hugs Jericho as he takes his scooter for a ride. For Ortiz, who got his bell rung- What?! SINCE YOU GOT YOUR BELL RUNG! Jericho got Ortiz special headphones to stop the ringing in his ears. Amazing! And of course, Hager has something. Grandpa Hager taught him that the best gift is a hand-written poem. What? Hager takes out a paper and reads his own original poem, “Happiness.”

“O Inner Circle, you are the faction of my dreams. The perfect mix of sex and violence, the best of both extremes. You build me up when I’m feeling down like only close friends can. And if anyone ever crossed you, I will choke them with my bare hands.” Santana, Ortiz, Sammy and Le Champion, they truly are the best-la. Hager can’t wait to run The Elite over with his Tesla. He loves the way they steal the show every Wednesday night. “The Elite are the biggest b*tches on AEW Dynamite.” Jericho loves it! “Those pumpkin headed dips*its may have won the Stampede, but The Inner Circle never loses because I have a particular set of skills, I will find them. I will find them all like an unstoppable rebel force. I know where they live and I’ve seen where they sleep, and I swear all you fans will cry!” Whoa, whoa, Hager, okay, that’s good. “The end.” Round of applause for Hager.

Sammy asks what Jericho wants. He has all these gifts, but what does he truly want? “Mike Tyson’s head on a platter.” Whoa…! Jericho hasn’t forgotten what Tyson did to him on 1/11/2010 on a Monday night. The crowd cheers for Iron Mike as Jericho vents about Tyson turning on him. Ever since that day, Jericho has been dreaming of getting his hands on Tyson’s fat head. He wants his head on a platter! Well Sammy couldn’t get Tyson’s head, but he has something just as good. Sammy has a cheese platter and a bit o’ the Bubbly. Wait, the bottle is empty and there’s no cheese! What happened? Sammy swears it was all there backstage. But here comes Tyson and his posse! They’re eating the cheese and drinking the Bubbly! Tyson and his boys go right to the ring and stand face to face with the Inner Circle.

Jericho wants everyone to keep their cool. Tyson has his thugs, so Jericho will say this once. Shut your mouth, for one. Jericho has been dreaming of this moment for over 10 years. Tyson turned on Jericho after lying to his face! Tyson knocked Jericho out! Well Jericho is a sucker who deserved it! Jericho tells Tyson to shut up. Tyson has one chance and one chance only to apologize. Jericho tells Tyson’s guys to shut up and repeats his demand. Tyson tears his shirt off instead. Tyson flexes at Jericho but Jericho still demands an apology. Tyson shoves Jericho, Jericho shoves back, and we have a brawl! Security and referees rush in to try and stop this!

The table goes flying as Cody gets Tyson out of the middle of the scrum! Tyson and his guys leave but the Inner Circle is still swinging on whoever comes near! Tyson comes back and it takes all his guys to keep him back! Jericho vows to finally get back at Tyson but it takes as many people to hold him back. Will Le Champion get his long awaited revenge or just get knocked out by Iron Mike again?


My Thoughts:

A great episode to follow up Double or Nothing while building towards Fyter Fest! The Six Man Tag to open was great stuff, with the biggest part being the team formerly known as The Revival showing up! The former Dash Wilder and Scott Dawson finally stare down with The Young Bucks, but it is also smart to save a throw down between them for later. I imagine Fyter Fest will have that incredible first-time-ever. In the mean time, I like that Butcher and Blade made their return as part of the fighting. While Bucks VS FTR is the main attraction, AEW has been good at giving many wrestlers multiple rivals, so FTR being tweeners to take on Bucks and the mercs sounds like a lot of fun. There is a bit of curiosity here, though. Is Allie just not the Bunny anymore? We all know she was, but now she’s being a distraction for QT Marshall. Is this some long game ploy for Butcher, Blade and Bunny to tear the Nightmare Family up? That’s the only good story to come from this as far as I’m concerned.

Based solely on his work in AEW, you’d think Lee Johnson merely exists so big muscle Heels can destroy him. But I like that Moxley actually welcomes the challenge from Cage. Mox does not run away, he warns others to beware of him, so him going headlong against someone as menacing as Cage is going to be great. I’m sure there’s a way they can have Cage lose without him looking weak given this is his first story in AEW and it’s big right out of the gate. I did not expect a tag team match to determine challengers for next week, but SCU VS Superbad Squad was a really good match. Ford helps her team win, and I think that can actually help add some compelling layers to Scorpio’s individual story. Superbad Squad VS Omega & Page should be really good, but I can’t see Superbad Squad winning to make Fyter Fest’s match Best Friends VS Superbad Squad.

Britt Baker becoming a paranoid conspiracy theorist is pretty funny. Her already establishing the return being at All Out, I would think she and Kris Statlander finally have their match as was meant for Double or Nothing. Britt can go on a new string of wins starting with that to have a shot at the title by Full Gear 2 in the Fall. Shida has a pretty good match with Christi Jaynes, but I am curious who her first challenger will be. Maybe AEW surprises us with a contender’s match of some sort next week, since Fyter Fest is an unknown number of weeks away. Nyla will surely want a rematch but it’d be better if someone new got in the mix, like Big Swole Aerial Monroe or even Penelope Ford to keep pace with the Superbad Squad.

Cody’s promo announcing he is making the TNT Championship the television/fighting champion title is a bold but appreciated move. It’s notably ahead of WWE wanting to do the same with the WWE Intercontinental Championship, and clearly AEW still loves taking jabs at WWE *cough* JR’s line about Plexiglas */cough*. But that will definitely be great for ratings but also for this new title. The #1 contender’s battle royal was a lot of fun, and it’s great that Jungle Boy won. Cody VS JB next week will be great. One great part before the battle royal was MJF and Wardlow having that tense moment, even though MJF brushed it off. There has to come a point when MJF pushes Wardlow too far and Wardlow decimates him for it.

Then the Inner Circle was definitely “on brand” for their humor all night. Too many shirts that aren’t even relevant, the cheesy gifts, and even having Vickie Guerrero and the cheerleaders was just the right kind of corny. Hager’s poem was great, mostly because of his ranting tangent he went on. I like that we’re clearly getting Jericho VS Tyson as a bit of a nostalgia powered dream match for Fyter Fest. Whatever promos and back and forth arguing we’ll get will be great, but how does Tyson not just one shot Jericho? Mostly because, for all the muscles Tyson still has, I surely doubt he can wrestle even Jericho’s pace.

My Score: 9.2/10

Darby Allin VS The Beast Mortos!

The ESports Stadium in Texas fires up as The Relentless One is back in action! He’s getting ready for Blood & Guts this Wednesday, but will he be red hot going into Dynamite? Or will he not get past the beast standing in his way?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Darby circles with Mortos, they tie up, and Mortos powers Darby to a corner. The ref counts, Mortos lets off and the two reset.

Sunset flip, but Darby sits on it! Mortos pushes up but Darby rolls him to a cover, TWO! Darby clamps on with a SLEEPER! The fans rally, Mortos fights up, and Mortos runs to BACKPACK CANNONBALL!

Mortos tumbles up and out, no cameramen harmed in the fall!

Darby goes up to SUPER COFFIN DROP! Down goes Mortos again and the fans lose their minds! Darby drags Mortos back up, puts him in the ring, and then climbs up. But Mortos HEADBUTTS Darby down! Mortos builds speed to TORNILLO TOPE!! Direct hit and the fans are thunderous again! They cheer on “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving them this opener.

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Both men were relentless tonight, but it’s Darby who survives their Collision! Will Darby be even more dangerous when he steps inside the double ring, double cage that is Blood & Guts?

Darby gets a mic to have his music cut. He says people tell him to slow down, or else he won’t be able to walk when he’s 30. Well, he is 30 now, and he feels wonderful! The only thing is, Darby doesn’t take the night off. Darby doesn’t forget being a dishwasher. He’d rather get kicked in the face any night of the week than go back to that. And we’re getting ready for Blood & Guts, and it’s very fitting that Darby’s finally in one. If anyone saw Sting’s final match, they saw Darby’s guts hanging out! He has a scar on his side that looks like Harry Potter’s forehead, and it stings every day. The fans cheer that!

Darby wants to talk the EVPs for a second, The Young Bucks. What sucks about them is that they never come to Collision, they never advertise the shows on the news or radio. It is Darby! AEW is Darby’s baby now! And he will stop at nothing to make sure everyone knows! Darby wouldn’t be here if not for The Bucks, that’s no secret, but man, they suck so bad now. And Jack Perry… Oh, Jack Perry. TNT Champion? No, that title means everything to Darby, and he will stop at nothing until the belt is around his waist again. So All In is around the corner… If Jack has the balls, let’s play! Darby is ready for Blood & Guts, see you Wednesday!

 

The Acclaimed speak.

Max Caster says, “Yo! Listen! The Elite, Blood & Guts next week, Team AEW is about to stomp on those tiny little nuts.” Billy Gunn tells Caster to just stop right there. That is not what the match is about. It is not about Bowens being The Scissor King, or about Caster being a rapper. It is about being the best wrestlers alive, and about being a badass! They need to bring this fight to The Elite! Time to nut up or shut up! Daddy Ass is fired up for his boys, and that fires them up! Bowens & Caster are ready to get serious, will they make The Young Bucks pay for playing games with them?

 

Skye Blue VS Hikaru Shida!

To be the best, you gotta beat one of the best, and that is why Chicago Skye called out the former THREE-TIME AEW Women’s World Champion! Will Skye use this Collision to build momentum? Or is she just going to give Shida her own rebound victory towards a title?

The bell rings and Skye BOOTS Shida down! Skye bumps Shida off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, then lets off. Skye brings Shida around to bump off buckles again, then stomps her more. Shida hits back, but Skye ROCKS her for it. Skye brings Shida around again, but Shida breaks free to ROCK Skye! Skye fires another forearm, but so does Shida! They go back and forth, faster and faster, then Shida fires off a flurry! Shida ROCKS Skye, fires up, then catches Skye to spin her. Skye ELBOWS Shida first, then runs, but into a KNEE! Shida runs but Skye SHINING WIZARDS at the ropes! Skye snapmares and runs up, but Shida blocks!

Shida spins Skye, ducks the spin kick and rolls Skye up! Skye rolls through but Shida DROPKICKS her out of the ring! The fans fire up and Shida watches Skye go around the way. Shida goes up and CROSSBODIES! Down goes Skye and the ref has Doc Sampson check. Shida gets herself a chair while she waits, and the fans fire up while Collision goes picture in picture.

Shida paces while Skye is checked out. That fall really rocked her, maybe even beat up a leg. Shida paces, then goes back into the ring to wait. Shida keeps the fans fired up, but it doesn’t look good for Skye. Shida checks with the ref, and it seems the match has been called! Shida wins by default!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by medical stoppage

A real shame for Skye, as she was the one who wanted this fight. But Shida is still moving on, will she be waiting on the champions after All In?

 

Lancer Archer is going nuts backstage!

He is beating up and throwing around prospects left and right! One guy walks in, sees what’s going on, and turns right around, only for Archer to grab him and CHUCK him into the garage door! “It seems everyone has forgotten who the Murderhark Monster is! Everyone’s forgotten just what I can do. And it’s time to remind you all!” Archer CHUCKS a trash can into another guy, #EverybodyDies! Who else will be unfortunate enough to face Archer’s wrath?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Hi, guys~! And hello, Minoru Suzuki. We’ve been waiting a long time for this match, haven’t we? For four years, I’ve been thinking of Suzuki VS Jericho. For four years, I’ve been wanting this match in the Tokyo Dome, or on Dynamite. And now, this Wednesday, the match comes true. It’s a dream match for sure. First time ever! But for you, Minoru, it’s gonna be a nightmare. Get ready for some night sweats and night terrors just thinking what I’m gonna do to you, and even worse after the match. They talk about Blood & Guts this Wednesday. This match is gonna be far more violent than that.

“They call you The Murder Grampa, one of the most violent men who ever came outta Japan. Well, Suzuki, if there’s anybody that can match you blow for blow, experience for experience, match for match, it’s me. So Suzuki, I can’t wait to teach you a few very valuable lessons. And one of them is gonna be you should’ve never turned down The Learning Tree when I asked you to be my partner, and you never should’ve come to the ring during TV Time last week on Dynamite. Suzuki, this is it, one for the ages. Like I said, first time ever, Jericho, Suzuki, Learning Tree VS the most violent man in Japanese history, I can’t wait.

“We’ll see you on, Wednesday, Suzuki, you’re not gonna like it. Thanks, guys!” The Learning Tree has been rather delusional these days, but has he reached a new level with this? Or does he have something up his sleeve to help him survive Suzuki?

 

Rey Fenix w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Tony Nese w/ The Premier Athletes!

The Immortal Firebird just won big last night on Rampage alongside Penta El Zero Miedo, but there’s no slowing down with him! However, “Smart Mark” Sterling has everyone stop so his client can say something very important. Nese takes the mic, even as fans boo, and Nese says “When they said everything is bigger in Texas, I’m gonna be honest. I thought they were talking about the cars, the houses. But the reason why they say that, now i can see, is because all of you are terribly, terribly FAT!” The fans boo but Nese says yes, it upsets him, too. But it isn’t entirely their fault. It is not. It’s because they haven’t had real athletes to look up!

Who’re they looking up to? The under-500 Texas Rangers? So, Nese’s lawyer, THE GREATEST lawyer in pro-wrestling, Sterling has made a contract to give a lucky individual an opportunity. But more importantly, it gives every single piece of trash here tonight to see what a real athlete looks like! But here comes Fenix! Will he make Nese regret flexing on Texas?

The bell rings and the fans rally for “LUCHA! LUCHA!” Fenix and Nese circle, feel things out, and they tie up. Nese wrenches, wristlocks, and grinds the arm. Fenix moves around, uses ropes to flip through, and then he wrenches to wristlock back. The fans rally as Fenix twists the wrist, but Nese fights up. Fenix HEADBUTTS the arm, but Nese fights up again. Fenix wrenches, Nese rolls, and then Nese throat chops! The fans boo and the ref reprimands, but Nese SOBATS Fenix to run and BOOT! And WHEEL KICK! Cover, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese soaks up the heat. Nese stalks Fenix but the fans chant “You Still Suck!”

Nese CLUBS Fenix with crossface forearms, taunts the fans, then he drags Fenix up. Fenix knees free, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then springboards, but the ropes give out! Cover, TWO! Nese drags Fenix by his leg, stomps away, and Fenix crawls away. Nese stalks Fenix, stomps the leg more, then brings him up. Nese CHOPS, Fenix CHOPS, repeat! The fans “WOO~!” as the CHOPS keep going! Fenix fires up and he CHOPS! Nese falls back against ropes while Fenix eggs him on! Nese kicks low, whips, but Fenix reverses and DROPKICKS! Nese bails out, Fenix gets the bad leg moving, and he builds speed, only for Sterling to save Nese!

Fenix slides out, glares at Sterling, then ROCKS Nese! Daivari steps up but that’s a distraction. Same for Josh Woods! The ref reprimands, Nese blocks the superkick to then SUPERKICK back! Fenix falls, Nese slides into the ring, and that lets the Premier Athletes mug Fenix! The fans boo but the ref misses it all as Collision goes picture in picture.

Fenix clutches his leg, drags himself up, and Daivari talks trash on the fans. Nese AX HANDLES Fenix, but then Fenix shoves Nese. Nese ROCKS Fenix, CHOPS him again, but Fenix just CHOPS back! Nese kicks the bad leg, then whips Fenix hard into railing! Fenix falls over, Nese flexes while soaking up heat, and he goes back for Fenix. Nese puts Fenix in the ring, stomps him, then paces around. Nese drags Fenix up, TOSSES him up, and the Premier Athletes mug Fenix again! Fenix tumbles away to the ramp while Abrahantes protests, but that just lets even Sterling get his shots in! Fenix storms up on Sterling and he runs away as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Nese covers, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese pushes him around. Fenix CHOPS back! Fenix eggs Nese on, Nese SLAPS, so Fenix CHOPS! Nese fires a haymaker, talks trash, but Fenix fires body shots. Nese stands Fenix up to CHOP him back down! Nese drags Fenix to a cover, ONE! Nese is annoyed but he drags Fenix up. Fenix CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS, CHOPS, CHOPS! Nese throat chops! The ref reprimands, but Nese HOTSHOT BULLDOGS! Then he slingshots to roll Fenix up, TWO! Nese deadlifts to a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and the fans fire up!

Nese and the Premier Athletes are frustrated but the fans rally behind Fenix. Nese drags Fenix up, pushes him to a corner and he fires haymakers! The fans boo but Nese sits Fenix down. The ref counts, Nese lets off, and Nese brings down the kneepads. Nese goes side to side, but Fenix somersaults to SPIKE-RANA! Cover, TWO!! Nese survives, but Fenix BOOTS him! Fenix runs in to JUMP SOBAT! Nese wobbles, Fenix brings him around to wrench, but Daivari gets on the apron! Fenix runs Daivari off, but Nese runs in! Fenix DUMPS Nese out onto Daivari! The fans fire up and Fenix builds speed to FLY! Down go ALL the Premier Athletes!

The fans are thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” while Sterling panics. Fenix rises, and he puts Nese in. The fans rally behind Fenix as he climbs. Fenix reaches the top rope, but Sterling gets on the apron! So Fenix tightrope walk PENALTY KICKS him down! But Nese rolls Fenix! SOBAT HEEL KICK! Nese goes up and up and PREMIER 450! Cover, TWO!! Nese is furious that Fenix survives but the fans are thunderous! Nese drags himself over and brings Fenix up. Nese pump handles, lifts, but Fenix slips free and SUPERKICKS! Nese leans against ropes, Fenix goes up, tightrope PENALTY KICK! Fenix goes up to FROG SPLASH! Cover, Fenix wins!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall

It was practically 4v1 but Fenix still wins out! Will this momentum help Fenix head after whatever championship he wants after All In?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He welcomes us back to the ESports Stadium, and welcomes in two men AEW loves, it’s FTR! The fans fire up as Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood make their way out, having made their return just last week to help Tommy Billington against The Don Callis Family. FTR joins Schiavone in the ring and he brings up that big return to stand up to the Don Callis Family. Thankfully they did, so he asks their thoughts. Cash says if you ask him, Dynamite Kid Tommy Billington has one of the brightest futures in wrestling today, and they weren’t gonna let the Don Callis Family walk all over him.

But Cash also wants to talk FTR. It is no secret that the past two years has been the greatest run in their careers. The fans cheer that! Schiavone says the fans agree with Cash, and Cash says he thinks so, too. But while this was something Cash didn’t wanna talk about, when FTR was told they had time to talk tonight, he figured he should get it off his chest. It is no secret that Cash has been going through personal stuff that has dragged his name through the mud, is a cloud over his head, and he has had more stress than he could ever tell us all. Every single night, when he came out here, that was his escape.

This is where Cash could forget all that other crap, even when it wasn’t true. Every week, night after night, the fans helped Cash get through that. All that out there didn’t matter to him! It only mattered that he wrestled every match like it was his last, because he didn’t know if it was gonna be his last. So it isn’t a secret that Cash is a hot head, but it won’t happen outside this ring. Now the only people FTR has their eyes set on are The Young Bucks! So maybe, just maybe, time to go Buck Hunting!

Dax tells Schiavone that 2022 and 2023 were good times for FTR fans. FOUR world tag titles, THREE incredible matches with The Briscoes, and 58 MINUTES with Bullet Club Gold in Calgary. And the cherry on top: Beating the Bucks in front of 80 THOUSAND people in Wembley Stadium. But now, this is the present, and their win-loss record isn’t so great. Back in April, Dax had a serious back injury that he thought he wasn’t gonna come back from. But what really bothered him was The Bucks leap-frogging FTR as the best tag team in the world, and that didn’t sit well with him. The fans boo, they don’t like it either.

Dax says six weeks ago, he was sent home to rehab. He watched Collision, Dynamite and Rampage, all in hopes that “our EVPs, our fearless leaders,” would take this tag division back to the top and take it to the Promised Land. Dax was so let down. In six weeks, we haven’t seen The Bucks defend their titles. The fans boo that, too. Dax says maybe, just maybe, this is a big mistake. But starting next week, here in Arlington, Texas, FTR’s road to the AEW World Tag Team Championships begins. FTR starts their road back, and it ends at Wembley Stadium at All In!

And Dax knows sometimes he is rough to deal with, a little abrasive. But if you’ll give him a little grace, a little love, he promises FTR will give you all every bit of passion, love, tears, sweat and whatever else, so that they will become the THREE-TIME AEW World Tag Team Champions! The fans chant for “F T R! F T R!” and Dax tells The Bucks, “This whole thing’s for you. Top Guys, Out!” Just as AEW starts on the homestretch to All In 2024, FTR want to hit it out of the park! Will they get their shot at Matthew & Nicholas? Or are they overlooking The Acclaimed and their own shot at the gold?

 

Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida.

Lexy Nair is with the Shining Samurai and brings up the match tonight. Shida says stop, stop, stop. She came here for a fight, is still looking for a fight, and she wants to fight! Shida wants a fight… with DOCTOR BRITT BAKER!! Welcome back, by the way. And now Britt just wants to be TBS Champion? Get in line! Or does Britt not remember that Shida made her bleed once before? Shida will do it again this Wednesday on Dynamite: Blood & Guts! There could be a lot more blood than TBS bargained for, but will Shida make sure All In’s card is subject to change?

 

Roderick Strong VS Tomohiro Ishii!

The Savior of the Backbreaker will challenge Mark Briscoe for the ROH World Championship next Friday at Death Before Dishonor, right in this same building! However, he’s up against #BigTime Ishii, someone he’s also been itching to fight. Will Roddy be more than ready for the Sussex County Chicken? Or will the Stone Pitbull take a big bite out of him first?

The bell rings and the fans rally for “I-SHI-I! I-SHI-I!” as he circles with Roddy. They tie up, go around, and Ishii puts Roddy on ropes. The ref counts, Ishii lets off slowly, but Roddy CHOPS! Ishii doesn’t even flinch! Ishii eggs Roddy on, so Roddy CHOPS! Ishii CHOPS, Roddy CHOPS, repeat! The CHOPS keep going, a lot like they did just last night on Rampage. Ishii CHOPS, eggs Roddy on, so Roddy CHOPS again! The CHOPS just speed up now! The fans fire up as they go CHOP for CHOP again and again! Roddy then KNEES low, runs, and RAMS Ishii! Ishii stays put to CHOP again!

Ishii runs, Roddy CHOPS but Ishii just keeps moving, to run Roddy over! The fans fire up as Roddy flounders to a corner! Ishii eggs Roddy on, storms up, but Roddy BOOTS him! Roddy fires forearms but Ishii leans into them! Ishii corners Roddy like that! Roddy fires more and more and more forearms, but Ishii doesn’t budge!

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

Battle of the Belts returns for the 11th edition, following live after Collision! What championships will be on the line as AEW continues towards All In?

 

Dustin Rhodes & The Von Erichs speak.

Kevin Von Erich says it is so great to be here in Texas with his sons and his friend. This is a great night. Kevin remembers working with Dusty, and he learned so much from him. There will never be another like him. Wrestling is changing, there are a lot of differences. Dustin knows, he’s been here a long time, so he can be a real benefit to Marshall & Ross. Dustin thanks Kevin, and says he watched Kevin for years, learned so much from his own father, and he is sure the storm has arrived. One of the greatest wrestling legacies right here in Texas! The Von Erichs, the Rhodes, together for the first time since 1978!

Dustin looks forward to this, and promises that if they listen and watch, they’ll head down a path that is already great. They’ve seen this trio in action before, so believe him when he says, Dustin’s got your back. Will Dustin & The Von Erichs make a natural fit here in AEW?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now here we are in the Dog Days of Summer 2024, it’s hot as balls outside, and lemme tell you what else is heating up, the schedule for the ROH World Champion. Got a busy week next week. Next Friday, right here in Arlington, Texas, it’s ROH Death Before Dishonor, Mark Briscoe, Roderick Strong, for the ROH World title!” Mark tells Roddy that they’ve known each other a good long time now, came up in the game together. But Mark warns Roddy, Mark’s gotten wiser since last time. He’s gotten tougher since the last time! So Roddy better be ready! That’s Friday!

But after Friday, one thing’s for certain is that two days ago it was Wednesday! And let’s talk about Wednesday! Blood & Guts! Nashville, Tennessee! Team AEW VS The Elite. Let’s explain something to The Elite: pro-wrestling runs parallel to society in so many ways. And The Elite is the perfect example of what is wrong in the world today. They’re powerful, privileged, and they think they can step on the little man, step on the grind. But Team AEW represents the grind worldwide! Bring yo’ ass, because Mark will be disappointed if they don’t bring the fight! Let’s get violent, baby! RARARARA!

 

Lumberjack match: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

La Mera Mera has been daring The Virtuosa to just bring the fight so they can settle this, and she finally got Deonna to accept this fight!

Christian promised his family they’d have championships together, and it would seem his promise came true! The lights flicker, but they stay up. Was that just a glitch? Or is there something Christian is overlooking?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision here to start the “Road to Wembley” series in the ESports Stadium. The stage and ramp look great, but this new theme song they’re using instead of Elton John is not a good song. It has like marching band drums but still tries to be rock ‘n’ roll, they need to scrap it and try again. That aside, Darby VS Mortos was a great opener, and Darby of course won to bring momentum into Blood & Guts. Good promo from Darby to officially challenge Jack Perry for the TNT Championship, you can bet that’s happening. A shame for Skye Blue getting hurt tonight, but taking a crossbody from that high up is hard to judge. Hopefully the injury isn’t too severe. But good promo from Shida after to call out Britt, that’ll be a great match for Dynamite.

Great match from Fenix and Nese, and great win for Fenix, even if that was the extent of things. Great debut for Hologram/Holo.grm, formerly Aramis in AAA. He got to show a lot of what he can do, and even then I think there’s even more in his arsenal he held back. Great match from Roddy VS Ishii but I should’ve figured Taven & Bennett would show up to help Roddy win. Mark and Kyle running out there was logical, and no Cassidy was curious. It subtly builds that new moodiness to Cassidy, given he was in his more negative, dark denim and Pixies song mood on Dynamite. But great promo from Mark to hype up Blood & Guts as well as Death Before Dishonor.

Likewise, great promo from The Acclaimed with Billy making them get serious. Angry Acclaimed could make for some interesting stuff, especially if they kept it up towards their title match. Speaking of, FTR had a great promo but them setting a goal for another match with The Bucks at All In, I guess I was right to think that was the plan all along. Battle of the Belts 11 is coming so maybe that’s where we get Bucks VS Acclaimed? If that’s the case, then it feels like a given that Bucks win to go on to All In, which is a shame for The Acclaimed. Very good promo from Jericho to call out Suzuki, though I don’t think it added anything. They’re maybe leaning a little too hard into Jericho always needing TV time no matter the show, but whatever.

Good promo from Dusty & The Von Erichs, but did they really need to wait until AEW was back in Texas to get that trio going again? Well, given who the new trios champs are, I wouldn’t mind seeing Dusty & The Von Erichs going after The Patriarchy, especially with the obvious “Christian can bring up Dusty” promo waiting to be used. The trios championship match was great stuff, and they did a really good job making us think Bang Bang Gang was gonna win. But being Heels, Christian & The Patriarchy of course won via cheating. The flickering lights were a very subtle nod to The House of Black, but I would’ve preferred just a full tease, maybe just The House applauding from the tron and saying they’ll see Christian soon. And with Kip Sabian watching backstage, I feel like maybe Kip is the third man while Buddy Murphy is away.

My Score: 8.8/10

Will Freshly Squeezed, The Violent Artist & the Stone Pitbull tear The Kingdom down? Or will Rampage in Little Rock be Undisputed?

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Arkady Aura is with Saraya & Harley Cameron, and says we haven’t seen Saraya wrestle since her first round loss in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Harley speaks up and asks how that’s supposed to be Saraya’s fault. Why point the finger of blame at her? Maybe it is this company’s fault! Because Saraya has been spending this whole time training, getting “Wembley Ready,” and being an unproblematic icon! Saraya says Harley is right, and do you know why? Because AEW is scared of Saraya. The AEW Women’s Division is scared of her! Because she is the living legend, she understands.

Last year at All In, Saraya had the world at her feet! Now, they’re just keeping her off the show. Harley says doing All In Wembley without Saraya is like doing Beverly Hills Cop without Eddie Murphy! Saraya says yeah, that’s why they’re keeping her away. But they can’t do the show without her because she IS the show. All roads lead to Wembley, baby, and it doesn’t matter who she has to step on to get there. Then just who will The Outcasts take out in order to have their moment?

 

Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Bryan Keith VS The Outrunners!

While The Learning Tree has to defend that “For The World” Championship this Wednesday on Dynamite, he and The Redwood are not shying away from competition. Will Jericho & Bill show the world they’re not afraid of big bad Minoru Suzuki? Or will Turbo Floyd & Truth Magnum be the ones to teach The Learning Tree a thing or two?

Winners: Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Bad Apple Keith kicks Truth out of the ring, then he stands tall with his guys. Keith tells the Outrunners to respect Chris Jericho, but he and Bill won’t be around to help Jericho on Wednesday. Will Jericho be able to survive Minoru Suzuki in the shadow of Blood & Guts? Or will Suzuki tear down The Learning Tree #ForTheWorld?

Wait, speaking of Suzuki, here he comes! He has his own match tonight, but he wants to look Jericho in the eye one more time before Dynamite. Will the Meanest Man in the World make an example out of The Butcher?

Minoru Suzuki VS The Butcher!

Rampage returns and The Butcher is already in the ring. The bell rings and Butcher talks some smack on Suzuki. Butcher then fires a forearm, but Suzuki comes back with a forearm of his own.

Winner: Minoru Suzuki, by pinfall

A gritty fight for Suzuki and Butcher, and this was in a normal match! What won’t Suzuki do to Jericho when it is FTW Rules?

 

The Conglomeration speaks.

Mark Briscoe says, “For those of you who may or may not have been living under a rock for the past couple months, you are looking at the group that has come to be known as The Conglomeration. You know about my main man with the game plan, OC, and Kyle O’Reilly. Let me introduce to you Tomohiro Ishii, henceforth to be known as Big Time! That’s right! Here in The Conglomeration, there is only two rules. First and foremost, you gotta be down to conglomerate. And secondly, you cannot in any way, shape or form, be a s*it head!” Kyle shrugs and nods, because it’s true.

Mark then says that brings us to the word of the day! The word of the day is… Discombobulation! Kyle asks the country of origin. American! Can he use it in a sentence? In the midst of Mark’s discombobulation, Roderick Strong cracked him in the jaw with a knee, and stood over him, holding up Mark’s ROH World Championship high in the air! Now that done pissed Mark off, Roddy! He’s known Roddy a long time, and Roddy knows better than that! So next week, Death Before Dishonor, Mark has something for Roddy!

But before that, tomorrow night’s Collision, #BigTime Ishii is going to take Roddy on 1v1! No Kingdom, no Conglomeration, and damn sure no Don Callis Family at ringside! Roddy VS Ishii, and we’ll show y’all how we do in The Conglomeration! Because they’re ’bout to RARARARARA!! The Chicken is all fired up, but will the Stone Pitbull be able to take a big bite out of the Savior of the Backbreaker?

 

Kris Statlander w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Sydni Winnell!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor knows The Babe with the Power wants payback on her just as badly as she wants to run Willow’s life. But while Willow went and won the CMLL Women’s World Championship, Kris has just been grumbling and plotting with Big Stoke. Will Kris make an example out of Sydni tonight? Or will the Heart of Hutchinson, Kansas be unbreakable?

The bell rings and Kris DISCUS LARIATS right away! Stoke fires up but the fans are torn as Kris hauls Sydni back up. Kris ROCKS Sydni, CHOPS her, then fires off haymakers in the corner! The ref counts, Kris stomps a mudhole in, then she digs her boots in. The ref counts, Kris gets in his face about it, then goes back to Sydni. Kris drags Sydni up to snap suplex! Sydni flounders but Stokely smiles. Kris runs corner to corner, UPPERCUTS, then goes side to side, but Sydni ELBOWS her! Sydni fires forearm snow and has Kris in a corner! The fans fire up, Sydni fires up, and she whips. Kris reverses to then scoop and pop Sydni around!

Kris tucks Sydni in for STATURDAY NIGHT FEVER!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

As Stokely says, every night is #StaturdayNight, especially when Kris wins like that. She has Stoke stand on her while she does push-ups just to show off, but will Kris be ready when Willow returns with a vengeance?

 

Holo.grm loads up.

Whoever this mysterious masked man is, he is ready, and he promises that tomorrow night on Collision, we will see him debut! Will Holo.grm prove to be more than meets the eye?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Collision is already stacked with Strong VS Ishii, Holo.grm’s debut, and the Unified World Trios Championship match, The Patriarchy VS The Bang Bang Gang, but Skye Blue’s challenge to Hikaru Shida has been answered! Will the Shining Samurai cut through the Chicago Skye to find her way back to the top of the ranks? We’ll also see Darby Allin return to action against The Beast Mortis! Will The Relentless One sharpen his edge for Blood & Guts? Plus, the Lumberjack match has been made official! Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo, with other AEW stars all around ringside, will this be where La Mera Mera and The Virtuosa finally settle the score?

 

The Lucha Brothers w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Private Party!

Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix are looking to get in on the tag title chase, but so are Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy. While The Acclaimed still have to shoot their shot at The Young Bucks, which team will be waiting for them on the other side?

Quen steps up to Penta, and Penta says uno momento. Penta dramatically takes off his glove, but Quen says no, let him. “SHOTS! SHOTS!” Penta says okay, listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Quen, so Quen comes back to say “SHOTS!” “CERO! MIEDO!” “SHOTS!” They go back and forth, taunt for taunt, then Penta CHOPS! Quen is stinging but he composes himself. Quen comes back, CHOPS, but that hurts his hand more than it does Penta’s body! Penta says okay, and he unbuttons Quen’s shirt, to CHOP him down! The fans fire up with Penta as he does a “SHOTS! SHOTS!” dance! So Quen returns to fire forearms!

Quen ROCKS Penta, runs, but Penta SUPERKICKS! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs but Quen BOOTS him down! Quen nods, runs up, but DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Both men stay up, Penta blocks a kick to HEEL KICK, only for Quen to ROUNDHOUSE back! Both men wobble, then they DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE! Both men fall and the fans fire back up!

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

Private Party put up a fight to be sure, but Penta y Fenix just wanted it that much more! Will the Lucha Brothers be watching Blood & Guts very, very closely?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of Rampage here, and even the squash matches served some purpose. Kris crushing Sydni was mostly for momentum, but it felt like that was the first real showing of Kris’ Heel attitude with her trash talking the whole time. Jericho letting Bill do all the work against The Outrunners was naturally how that match was going, but it works perfectly in character and story for them. And Jericho crossing paths with Suzuki before Suzuki puts Butcher away rather quickly was good, too. The go home math is therefore even ahead of their FTW Championship match, but I wonder if Jericho was texting someone who could interfere for him since Keith & Bill can’t. But it can’t be Jeff Cobb, though, he’s locked in for NJPW’s G1 Climax.

Very good promo from The Outcasts, and while Toni Storm VS Mariah May is one title match and Mercedes Mone VS Britt Baker is another, Saraya could end up putting out an open challenge and it is answered by someone big from Stardom or CMLL for a first-time-ever kind of match to make All In even more historic. Great tag team main event from Lucha Brothers VS Private Party, with it mostly being for momentum. Private Party has finally been back on track now that both guys are healthy, but Lucha Bros winning out made sense. Penta & Fenix have been great as a team and as individuals, they’re both primed to take on just about any team or even singles champs if needed.

And great opener from The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom, even though I’m surprised they did such a Six Man Tag already. The Conglomeration winning could still feed into my idea that Cassidy & Kyle get an ROH Tag Team Championship match at Death Before Dishonor, but it also gives us a reason for Ishii VS Roddy tomorrow night. Great promo from Mark Briscoe in that, too, he continues to be one of the best underappreciated promo guys in all of wrestling today. I feel like Mark is going to retain the title against Roddy given how Shane Taylor is gunning for Mark, but that really depends on if Tony Khan is even paying attention to his own shows.

My Score: 8.7/10
