Another loss for Cutler and Avalon, what are her thoughts? Leva has a plan. If they follow it- Cutler interrupts, not wanting another one of their “plans”.

My Thoughts:

Another big, long episode of Dark, but still with great stuff. I did not expect Jurassic Express to be the opener but they did great against Cruz and the Capital Vices. SCU winning was a bit of a given, but the story of Cutler and Avalon is going great. This Wednesday better give us the moment that brings about a Fyter Fest match to “officially crown” the WORST AEW Wrestler. Swole got a good win and a great little post match jab at Britt Baker. Archer obviously wins but I’m really intrigued by how he almost interfered in the tag match right after. Janela & Kiss are doing great as a team, but I wonder if Archer takes them both on just to prove how dangerous he is. And will Archer come back for the TNT Championship at All Out? I sure hope so.

Brandi & Allie technically made a good team, but Allie continuing to exaggerate things and be conniving, it really is hard to tell where her motivations lie. Still hoping she is going full deceiver and will ditch QT for The Butcher & The Blade right as Natural Nightmares is at the peak. I almost thought the new glove was going to cost Spears because he wasn’t used to it, but maybe that comes later. This is a good improvised alternative to how the #SearchForSpears had to be cancelled because of COVID, though. Good to see Uno and Grayson back, and of course they win. Superbad Squad sweeps between Havoc and Penelope both having good matches. Oscar’s definitely adorable, and for some reason I foresee Superbad Squad one day taking on the Nightmare Family of Brandi, Cody and Dustin on in a program. The irony might be that Oscar and Pharaoh become buddies as the goodest boys in AEW.

Scorpio and Anthony had a really good match, but Scorpio wins as what I hope is an opportunity to get back to that singles build we were getting before the pandemic. If Scorpio isn’t one of the wrestlers to answer Cody’s Open Challenge for the TNT Championship before Fyter Fest, I’ll be moderately disappointed. Scorpio and Cody can definitely have an incredible match for that title.

My Score: 8.1/10

PLAY BY PLAY

It’s the Double or Nothing Buy-In!

Join Renee Paquette, RJ City and “Double J” Jeff Jarrett in discussing, analyzing and predicting the high stakes, high reward, high octane action set for Sin City tonight!

 

Backstage interview with Charlie Ramon.

Lexy Nair is with AEW’s Special Match Coordinator, and she asks him what goes into tonight’s Barbed Wire Steel Cage? “In this instance, you have a cage that stands over 15 feet tall from the ground up and it weighs over 3,000 pounds. However, woven throughout it will be over 500 feet of barbed wire.” Unbelievable! Now, Adam Copeland was part of the planning process, how did that go? Charlie would normally say it went well, but in this case, Tony Khan’s absence, a lot of emotion, he’ll just say it’s been tough. Then that said, how dangerous is this match? What can we as viewers prepare for?

Normally, a cage match is about ending a feud. In this case, this cage is built for destruction. Then this just got a lot more real. Lexy thanks Charlie for his time, are we about to see the end of one man’s in-ring career?

 

Buy-In – Deonna Purrazzo VS Thunder Rosa!

The Virtuosa took offense to La Mera Mera trying to jump the line right from the moment she returned to action, and ever since, it has been a back and forth both with fists and with words. But Deonna’s been doing a lot more running and hiding than Rosa expected, so it is time to put up or shut up! With the women’s titles on the line later tonight, who wins their spot as next in line?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. Rosa and Deonna stare down, circle, and tie up. They go around, break, and the fans are dueling. Rosa has the majority share, the two go again and tie up. Rosa arm-drags but holds onto the grapple. Deonna arm-drags but also holds onto the grapple. They get up, go to a corner, and the ref counts. Deonna lets off, but RAMS into Rosa! The ref reprimands, Deonna stomps Rosa, then digs her boot in! The ref counts, Deonna lets off and soaks up the heat. Rosa rises up but Deonna whips her. Rosa reverses to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Rosa whips Deonna but Deonna KICKS back!

Deonna swings, Rosa ducks ‘n ‘dodges to tilt-o-whirl RANA! The fans fire up, Rosa throws off the sleeves and runs in to ELBOW! The fans fire up more as Rosa goes corner to corner, but Deonna ELBOWS back! Deonna brings Rosa around to whip but Rosa goes up and over. Rosa DROPKICKS Deonna, the fans fire up, and Rosa grins as she storms back up on Deonna. Rosa stands Deonna up, but Deonna breaks free. Deonna swings, Rosa gets around and arm-drags her away! Deonna bails out, Rosa builds speed and WRECKS Deonna with a dropkick! The fans fire up and Rosa says, “Thank you very much.”

Rosa puts Deonna in, but Deonna bails out. Rosa storms up but Deonna BOOTS her down! The fans boo but Deonna soaks up the heat. Deonna scuffs Rosa, refreshes the count, and she RAMS Rosa into the apron! The ref reprimands, but Deonna CLUBS Rosa in the chest! Rosa gets in the ring, Deonna follows, and she paces around Rosa. Deonna stands on Rosa’s hand, talks trash on her, “This is what you wanted!” But Rosa fires body shots in return! Deonna DECKS Rosa, brushes herself off, then drops a leg on the arm! Deonna scissors the arm but Rosa endures. The fans rally, Deonna shifts around to wrench the arm, but Rosa fires a forearm shot!

Rosa fires more shots but Deonna WRINGS that arm out! Cover, TWO! Deonna is annoyed but she keeps close as Rosa writhes. Deonna grabs the bad arm, kicks it, then knuckle locks to step over. SNAP LOCK! Deonna drags Rosa to a cover, TWO! The fans rally with “SI SE PUEDES!” Deonna YANKS the bad arm, YANKS it again, and then wrenches for an ELBOW BREAKER! Rosa pulls hair, but Deonna wrenches and CLUBS away on the arm! Deonna grinds the bad arm, pulls at Rosa’s hair, but Rosa fights up! Rosa pushes back to a cover, TWO! Rosa has Deonna’s legs, for a SEATED SURFBOARD!

The fans fire up as Rosa pulls Deonna back, then hooks her up. Deonna fights the pendulum and ROCKS Rosa down! Cover, TWO! Deonna clamps onto the bad arm for a top wristlock! Rosa bridges to alleviate pressure and the fans rally up. Rosa fights to sit up, then arm-drag free! Rosa runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, but DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down! The fans fire up again as the two stir. The dueling gets louder, but it still seems like Rosa has the majority if by only a few. The two go forehead to forehead, shout at each other, and Deonna SLAPS! Rosa SLAPS back! Rosa LARIATS! And NECKBREAKER!

Rosa pounds the mat and fans rally as Deonna goes to ropes. Rosa fires up, runs in, DROPKICK! Deonna flounders, Rosa shrieks and covers, TWO! Deonna survives but Rosa keeps her focus. Deonna bails out to the apron but Rosa runs up. The fans cheer on “Women’s Wrestling!” as Rosa ducks the haymaker and ROUNDHOUSES! Rosa goes up and up, but Deonna SLAPS her first! Deonna puts Rosa in the Tree of Woe, then takes aim! Deonna runs up, and RAMS into Rosa! Then she YANKS Rosa out of the Tree, covers, TWO! Deonna is beside herself but Rosa is tough! Deonna slashes her throat as she reels Rosa in, but Rosa wrenches out!

Rosa wrangles Deonna but Deonna fights, so Rosa shifts to a COBRA CLUTCH! The fans fire up and Rosa becomes a backpack. Deonna RAMS Rosa into buckles, arm-drags free, then runs up, but Rosa ROLLING ELBOWS! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives that shot but Rosa snarls. Rosa drags Deonna up, reels her in, and says it’s time! But Deonna wrenches out to wrangle Rosa! FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! Rosa endures, Deonna pushes on the arm, but Rosa rolls her to a cover, TWO! Deonna swings, Rosa gets around, BACKSTABBER! Rosa glares, clamps on, but Deonna fights the Cobra Clutch! Rosa grinds Deonna down, COBRA CROSSFACE!!

Deonna fights forward, reaches out, but Rosa kicks ropes, only for Deonna to roll her to a cover! Deonna holds ropes! DEONNA WINS!!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by pinfall

Rosa is shocked! The Virtuosa proved she’s an expert in stealing the win, because she just did that here! Rosa is about to lose her mind, but is Deonna going to use this move on to bigger things?

 

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn.

Lexy is now with Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass, and says they are facing the #CageofAgony up next, how are they feeling? Billy tells “Penny” that they’re feeling magnificent! And does she know why? Here’s why. Last night, Billy was scrolling through social media, because that is what Billy does, and he comes across Cage & Agony whining and complaining. Brian Cage is always asking “Who Betta?” Well, one, two, three, three betta. Caster says that’s right! That’s right! Brian Cage and his two boys wanna say Caster’s name? They wanna blame Caster for losing Cage’s match? They’ve said his name, but Caster wants to know their names! He still hasn’t learned ’em.

Caster is a fast learner, he went to college, and yet he still can’t remember their names! How long have they been in AEW? How many times have they said their names? Caster couldn’t tell ya. So they wanna say last night on Collision was the biggest night of their career, then guess that’s true! Because they were in the ring with the best wrestlers alive, The Acclaimed! But that match for them was just another day at work. So y’know what? They wanna take it personal? Caster’s taking it personal! He has to wrestle them again, has to lend them his story power, The Acclaimed’s star power, to those three once again!

Caster could’ve been anywhere else, but he’s gotta be here. Caster’s respect is hard to earn, and Cage, you and your two boys, they don’t have any of it! That’s said humbly by the best wrestler alive! Mic drop, BETCH! Bowens steps in to say there’s so much to talk about! They’re live in Las Vegas, the MGM Grand, Double or Nothing! Brian Cage, with your big strong muscles, acted like a little biyatch needing to kick Bowens in the nuts just to win! And now Cage is bringing his boys into this, “The Cage of Agony.” Well Bowens is a #GayInAgony having to listen to Brian whine! Want your name in lights? Here you go! Step up to the plate!

When it is all said and done, all their names will be are NOTHING next to The Acclaimed as they whip some ass all over the strip! And after this, The Acclaimed is gonna go out, play some poker, pull some slots, and win the jackpot! They’ll celebrate all night long because EVERYONE Loves The Acclaimed! But will Sin City be scissoring at the end of the Buy-In?

 

Renee Paquette is on stage.

She says there is a major announcement to come, so please welcome out Martha Hart and Tony Khan! The fans cheer Dr. Martha walks out on stage with TK, and we clearly have the Owen Hart Cup on stage as well. Renee says it is so great to have Dr. Martha here, sot he floor is hers. She says it is great to be back in Vegas for Double or Nothing. And this is a special year for the Owen Hart Foundation, as it is 25 years of philanthropy and giving back. And because of that anniversary, here’s a little something special in mind for the 2024 Owen Hart Cup. The fans chant for “Owen! Owen!” and she joins in.

Martha says Tony Khan should do the honors here, and tell us all what they have in mind. Tony thanks Martha and says hello to the fans. We’ve got something very special planned as the third year of the Owen Hart Cup! It was on Christmas Eve this past year that Martha had a great idea. She said it’d add even more stakes to this great tournament if the winners were given… WORLD TITLE SHOTS! The fans love that idea! Tony loved that idea, too, and so the time and place for the finals of this year’s Owen Hart Cup should be in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, July 10th, the hometown of Owen Hart!

And yes, the winners this year will receive world championship opportunities… at ALL IN LONDON! Tony thanks Martha for all the great work with AEW, and this is a very exciting time. Tony will see everyone in Calgary and in Wembley, happy five year anniversary for AEW! Who gets in on those brackets to become this year’s King and Queen of Harts and future #1 contenders?

 

Buy-In – Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS The Cage of Agony!

We just heard from Caster, Bowens & Daddy Ass tonight, we heard from The Machine, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona the other night, but now it is time to put up or shut up! Well, except for Caster’s diss track.

“The Cage of Agony sounds like a chastity belt. I’ll whip you all, leave you freaky ass with a welt. He a fan, he a fan, he a fan. Brian Cage, limp pee niz, barely a man! Damn, straight bustin’ on these hoes. He barefoot, you probably suckin’ on his toes! You’re a pervert, probably put your long hair in curlers. Yes, I’m on the mic, and it’s a murder. Brian Cage always dressing up but do not lie. These days, why you cosplay as a top guy? To you other guys, I still don’t know your name. But in Vegas…” “Everybody Loves The Acclaimed!” “See? I didn’t even have to finish that.”

Bowens then gets the mic to again tell “LAAAS VEGAAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! Platinum Max just burned up the mic! Will the former AEW World Trios Champions burn the TWO-TIME ROH World Six Man Tag Champions? Or will there still be a question to #WhoBetta?

The trios sort out and Caster starts against Kaun. The fans rally as Kaun says Caster is just talk. But the fans taunt Kaun with “What’s Your Name?” Kaun points to his tights, it’s on his groin! Kaun and Caster tier up, go around, and Kaun puts Caster in a corner. Kaun smothers Caster, lets off at 4, but Caster BACKHANDS him! Caster headlocks but Kaun powers out. Caster dodges, runs, but Kaun drops, hurdles, but Caster waistlocks. Kaun switches, Caster bucks the O’Conner, but then Kaun throws Caster down by his hair! Caster gets up but Kaun LARIATS! Cover, ONE! Caster goes to ropes and uses those as a defense.

Kaun and Caster reset, but in tags Billy Gunn! The fans fire up and Billy tells Cage to get in here! The fans fire up for “DADDY ASS! DADDY ASS!” as Cage tags in. Cage flexes on Billy, the fans boo, but Billy says hold up. Billy flexes and the fans cheer! Billy and Cage circle, tie up, and Cage knees low. Cage headlocks, Billy powers up and out, but Cage runs him over! Billy goes to a corner while Cage soaks up the heat and flexes again. Billy stands back up, Cage talks some trash, but the fans taunt his “LITTLE WEENIE!” Cage and Billy tie up, Billy headlocks, but Cage powers up and out. Billy runs Cage over! The fans fire up as Billy flexes and swaggers!

Billy then says “SUCK IT!” Cage swings on Billy but Billy counter punches! Billy fires hands, whips, but Cage goes up and over to roll Billy! Billy rolls through but Cage basement dropkicks! Cage soaks up the heat, Caster tags in, but the Gates BLAST The Acclaimed first! Cage clotheslines Billy against ropes, they get stuck up there, then finally tip over and out to the floor! It’s chaos now as the teams brawl! Kaun sends Bowens into steel steps! Cage sends Billy into railing! Kaun stomps Caster while Liona sticks Bowens between steps and post! Liona CLUBS Bowens, then SMACKS him off the steps! Cage digs his boots in, Kaun sends Caster into railing!

Liona drags Billy up now, to send into the steel steps! The impact jams Bowens’ bad leg up! Bowens falls in a heap and clutches his leg but the ref reprimands Cage and the others. Cage gets in the ring, Liona and Kaun follow, and they aim at Caster in a corner. Liona runs in to clothesline! Kaun runs in to clothesline! Cage runs in to UPPERCUT! Tag to Kaun, then Cage hauls Caster up to the top rope. Kaun climbs, scoops, TOP ROPE BACKBREAKER! Caster flops to the apron! Liona APRON SENTONS! Cage tags in and he deadlift SUPERPLEXES Caster!! Cover, TWO!! Caster survives and Cage is annoyed but the fans fire up!

Cage tags Kaun back in, they get Caster up and mug him. Kaun CHOPS and Caster falls to his knees! Kaun drags Caster up, CHOPS again, then bumps him off buckles. Tag to Liona, he fires body shots from all sides! Liona snapmares then KICKS Caster in the back! The fans boo but Liona digs his foot into Caster’s face! The ref counts, Liona lets off, and Caster flounders to a corner. Liona stands on Caster again! The ref counts, Liona lets off at 4, and Liona gets in the ref’s face so that Kaun can CHOKE Caster! The fans boo, the ref senses something and reprimands Kaun. Cage tags in, but Caster kicks back!

Caster fires hands but Cage JUMP KNEES! Cage puts Caster back in the corner to RAM into him! And RAM him again! And then CHOP! Cage hoists Caster up top, climbs up, “Who betta than Cage?!” Caster fires body shots! Caster shoves Cage down, Kaun tags in! Kaun ROCKS Caster, goes up, but Caster fires hands! Kaun staggers back, Caster adjusts and CROSSBODIES! Cover, but the ref is busy checking Billy! TWO!! Liona tags in, and he BLASTS Billy! Billy gets up and in but the ref keeps him back! Liona SUPERKICKS Caster, drags Caster to a drop zone, then goes up. Liona fires up, leaps, but Caster avoids the diving headbutt!

The fans fire up as both men are down! Caster and Liona crawl, reach out, but Liona anchors Caster! Caster BOOTS Liona away, hot tags to Kaun and Billy! Daddy Ass rallies on Cage & The Gates with haymaker after haymaker! “SUCK THIS ISH!” Billy TOSSES Cage, clinches Kaun, THE ONE AND ONLY SLAM! Cover, TWO!! But the fans fire up with Billy as he kicks Kaun and tells him, ‘SUCK IT!” But Liona gets in to CLOBBER Billy!! The fans boo but Caster FLYING LARIATS Liona! Only for Kaun to get Caster for a GUTBUSTER! DISCUS LARIAT from Cage! The Gates & Cage get Billy up for a TRIPLE POWERBOMB! Cover, BOWENS BREAKS IT!!

The fans are thunderous as Bowens returns, even with one good leg! Bowens fires haymakers and CHOPS but Cage SOBATS, KICKS, and Liona HEADBUTTS! The fans boo more but Liona just soaks it up. Cage gets a chair and the fans boo, but wait! Chance, the Golden Knights’ mascot, snatches the chair! But now he’s a target! But then Caster goes out to kick Cage, for a FAMOUSER! The fans fire up, but then Liona runs to CLOBBER Caster! Kaun gets Billy but Billy cradles, ACCLAIMED WIN!!

Winners: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn, by pinfall

Kaun is furious, but The Acclaimed snatch victory from the jaws of defeat! Chance celebrates with Daddy Ass, Bowens & Caster while Cage, Kaun & Liona regroup. And then fans fire up for it, as Chance joins in on the SCISSOR PARTY~! With this win here, does The Acclaimed have a chance of going after some gold again?

 

Malakai Black speaks.

“For the life of a creature is in the blood. And I have been given it, from you, to make atonement for yourself on the altar. This altar, this cage, which will serve as your confessional, Cope. And every tear in your skin will serve as an admission of your guilt. This bloodletting, a release from bounds that you put on yourself. I will not stop, I will not yield. No, I will meet you in the abyss that we created together. And I will look you in the eyes, and I will absolve you through torture and death. What do you see when you look at me, Adam?” Is the Dark Father going to become the Face of TNT? Or will he regret pushing The Rated R Superstar to the edge?

 

“There’s been a lot said about this town.”

“A lot more than can never be spoken. Fortunes change with the roll of the dice. Realities shift on the flip of a card. And to win big in this place, you need to be willing to risk big. There is one thing here that is always certain: this place lives for the fight. And the Triple Main Event? That is Vegas. Tonight, will your dreams come true under these bright lights? Or be buried in the desert? Because after all these years, you know that in Las Vegas, it’s Double or Nothing.”

 

AEW International Championship: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Will Ospreay!

The Savior of the Backbreaker doesn’t respect the Aerial Assassin because he still sees that same brash young kid from over a decade ago. But the feeling is mutual because Ospreay still sees the same stuck up veteran who’s always been jealous of Ospreay’s natural ability. These two aren’t fighting to earn respect, they’re fighting to prove they’re the best! Will Roddy make sure this title stays Undisputed? Or does Ospreay prove he is the #BillyGOAT?

The introductions are made, but Ospreay doesn’t wait for the bell, he runs up as Roddy poses! Roddy ducks the Hidden Blade and the brawl is on! The ref rings the bell then tells Taven & Bennett to get outta the ring! Roddy CLUBS away on Ospreay, throws the belt aside, then whips. Ospreay stops himself by holding ropes, then he TOSSES Roddy out! Ospreay aims to PLANCHA, but has to land out as Roddy moves! Roddy runs up, Ospreay dodges him to BOOT Taven into the timekeeper’s area! Bennett runs up but Ospreay TOSSES him into Taven! The fans fire up but Roddy KNEES Ospreay low!

Roddy gets up, Ospreay fires more hands! The fans sing “OSPREAY~! OSPREAY OSPREAY OSPREAY~!” and Ospreay CATAPULTS Roddy into the post!

Ospreay puts Roddy in the ring, the fans chant “BRUV! BRUV! BRUV!” Ospreay scoops to hit a BACKBREAKER! Cover, ONE! Ospreay stands Roddy to CHOP! And CHOP again! Roddy goes to a corner, Ospreay runs up, but Roddy puts Ospreay on the apron. Ospreay ROCKS Roddy, HOTSHOTS him, but Roddy flounders away. Roddy distracts the ref with talk of a bad neck, and The Kingdom go after Ospreay! Ospreay kicks Taven away, but Bennett gets under him for an Electric Chair Lift! Taven gets in the ring, builds speed, and FLIES! TOPE DOOMSDAY!! Ospreay lands hard on his head and Taven didn’t land much better!

The ref sees Ospreay is down and checks on him. The fans chant “REF, YOU SUCK!” Callis is worried for Ospreay but Ospreay seems okay to continue. Roddy gets Ospreay in and digs at the bandage on Ospreay’s forehead! Roddy gets the bandage off and he punches away on that healed up cut! He wants to bloody Ospreay like he did on Wednesday! The fans boo, the ref reprimands, but Roddy stomps Ospreay right on the forehead! Ospreay goes to a corner, Roddy CLUBS him, then CHOPS him! Roddy clamps onto Ospreay to CLUB him in the head. Roddy then gives Ospreay a STOMP, then drags him into a CAMEL CLUTCH!

Ospreay endures, Callis complains about The Kingdom being ringside to begin with, but Ospreay fires hands from below! Ospreay slips an arm through the chinlock to CLUB Roddy. Roddy KNEES Ospreay down, then soaks up the heat from the fans. Ospreay throws a body shot, Roddy hits back, and they go back and forth! Ospreay gets the edge, whips, but Roddy reverses. Ospreay still catches Roddy to a COBRA TWIST! But Roddy HIP TOSSES free! Cover, TWO, but Roddy clamps onto Ospreay with a CROSSFACE! Ospreay fights it by turning sideways, and the fans rally with “BRUV! BRUV! BRUV!” Ospreay scoots back, ROPEBREAK!

Roddy throws hands on Ospreay’s head, then lets off as the ref counts. Roddy drags Ospreay up, CHOPS again, but Ospreay just gets fired up! Ospreay ROCKS Roddy! Roddy CHOPS, and they CHOP back and forth! The fans fire up but then Roddy knees low! Roddy fires body shots in the corner! The ref counts, Roddy CLUBS Ospreay, and The Kingdom says that’s how you do it! Roddy scoops Ospreay for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roddy is annoyed but the fans rally for Ospreay. Roddy drags Ospreay up, but Ospreay JAWBREAKERS free! Roddy BOOTS back! But Ospreay blocks! And CHOPS! Ospreay CHOPS again!

The fans fire up and Ospreay whips corner to corner. Roddy reverses, runs up, blocks a boot and YANKS Ospreay into a carry! But Ospreay CLUBS free! Ospreay runs, handsprings, and NEURALIZER KICK!

Wardlow CLUBS Ospreay and reels him in!

The ref gets so heated at The Kingdom, but then he steps back and bumps into Ospreay, and turns around to see Wardlow! The ref gets Ospreay free of the bomb and tells Wardlow off! Wardlow gets out, shrugs, but Roddy runs up on Ospreay! Ospreay ducks the knee, tucks Roddy in, CHEEKY NANDOS! Roddy tumbles out, The Kingdom help shim up, but Ospreay goes up and up and SKY TWISTER!! Down goes everyone but Wardlow! The ref has had it! He EJECTS The Kingdom while the fans lose their minds! Ospreay gets Roddy in, goes to the corner, and springboards in, PIP PIP CHEERIO! Cover, TWO!!

Roddy is still in this but Ospreay stays on him. Ospreay reels Roddy in, Roddy fights the lift, so Ospreay gives a Kawada Kick, and a CHOP! Roddy CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS again! Roddy runs, into the TIGER WALL KICK! ENZIGIRI! Ospreay hits a FISHERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Not quite perfect but Ospreay doesn’t let that bother him.

Roddy runs the ropes to SHOTGUN- SITOUT POWERBOMB!! Both men are down and the fans are thunderous again! A standing count starts while fans chant for “A E DUB!

Adam Cole is here!

The fans are thunderous again as “IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BOOM!” The Panama City Playboy makes his return to AEW PPV and just being on screen at all, that foot looking at 100%. Cole steps into the ring for his “ADAM COLE, BAYBAY!” and then gets a mic. “Who’s ready for Story Time with Adam Cole Baybay?” The fans sure are! Cole says here it goes then: “Las Vegas, Nevada! You all suck! You wanna know why you suck? I shouldn’t even be out here right now. I should be back there checking on Roderick Strong. Or better yet, I should leave the building and go hang out with The Undisputed Kingdom.

“Truth be told, I shouldn’t even be in this freakin’ city. I should be home, rehabbing my ankle, coming back and doing what I do best, and that is professional wrestling. None of you have any idea the hell that I’ve been through these past two years, and I still get disrespected. Because whether anyone wants to admit it or not, I am one of the greats pro-wrestlers of this generation.” Cole then brings out the MJF Devil Mask. “We do have a little devil inside all of us. And I wanna make one promise and one promise very, very clear. When I am 100%, you WILL give the Devil his due. And his name…” THE LIGHTS GO OUT!?

A spotlight comes on, and Cole looks around. On the tron is a long hallway. And as we walk down that hallway, we go into a room. MJF’s room! The music plays, the Dynamite Diamond Ring is put on, and so is the scarf! There’s a picture torn in half, of the best brochachos. Cole has seen a ghost, but more like he’s seen a devil! Because MJF is HERE!! Sin City is losing its mind as The Scumbag walks out in a denim vest, looking ready to play the game! MJF storms his way down the ramp, into the ring, and he sees the mask on the mat. The fans are thunderous, Cole wants MJF to hold on a second, and Cole offers a hug!?

MJF can’t believe this. Cole says together, these two could run this place! The fans tell Cole that he F’d up, but then MJF says okay, Adam. They hug it out, the fans boo, but then MJF LOW BLOWS Cole! The fans cheer Cole getting what he deserves, and MJF grins. MJF then drags Cole up to suplex for a BRAINBUSTER! MJF grabs the mic Cole was using while the fans go nuts. “He’s Our Scumbag!” MJF tells Cole, “You noodle armed, bobble-headed SOB! Uh oh, did I hurt the Baybay? Tough s*it, get this s*it stain outta my ring, huh? Oh and Cole, while they’re dragging your boney carcass outta here, I want you to try and listen while you’re close to unconsciousness.

“See, I gave you something I’ve never given anyone before: Trust. And thanks to you, brochacho, that s*it ain’t happening again! See, he thought he took out MJF.” MJF then tells a cameraman to get his butt in the ring, MJF needs all the angles. MJF then says Cole didn’t take out MJF, he just woke MJF up! MJF remembers who he is: THE GREATEST WRESTLER ON GOD’S GREEN EARTH! MJF is a generational talent, he is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and he is better than you, and you know it! But why is that? Pray tell! Oh, he will. Because unlike Adam Cole “and all those shmucks in the back, I don’t need a New Japan, or a Vince McMahon, to make MJF, BECAUSE MJF MADE MJF!!”

The fans fire up again and MJF smirks. MJF says when it comes to The Salt of the Earth, back to the regularly scheduled programming. No more haha, no more friendships, no more kangaroo kicks, no more BS!! Back to being driven by what he is driven by best. Not love, no no no. He’s talking HATE, HATE, HATE! Fans actually chant “HATE! HATE! HATE!” MJF says when your boy is driven by hate, no one is safe. MJF then looks at the mask. MJF picks it up, looks it over, and says “You see this stupid mask? Masks are adorned by cowards who want to hide. See, I’m about done hiding. I’m about done being humble. I’m about done apologizing for the fact that I’M THE GADDAMN BEST!

“No one is more complete in this sport than me! It is not my fault, ladies and gentlemen, that all your cute little favs, in comparison to moi, suck a big ol’ bag o’ donkey d*cks!” MJF says he doesn’t need a mask to prove that no one is on the level of the devil. “So this stupid, goofy, grotesque mask that symbolizes the tail end of 2023 and makes my stomach turn in knots, this dumb mask and everything it symbolizes can go straight to HELL!” MJF throws the mask down, stomps it, throws off the jacket then swaggers to Ric Flair ELBOW DROP! MJF TOSSES the mask, free souvenir! The fans chant “Welcome Back! Welcome Back!”

MJF then says he’s been betting on himself since day one. He’s all in, double or nothing. So when it comes to his contract, as if it wasn’t already obvious to the stupid marks, no offense… to quote one of the all time greats, may he rest in peace… MJF rolls up a pant leg and tells the cameraman to zoom in. MJF’s got a new tattoo that says “BET ON YOURSELF” and has an AEW poker chip! The fans are thunderous for “A E DUB!” and MJF says when it comes to him in AEW, you can call him the Wolf of Wrestling. BECAUSE HE’S NOT EFFIN’ LEAVING!! The Scumbag references all the legends because he is a legend in the making, when and where will he get his shot at the top?

Jericho whips, Shibata reverses, Jericho goes through the table! And then Shibata HYDRAULIC DROPKICKS him in the wreckage!! The fans fire up, Shibata covers, TWO!! Jericho survives but Shibata drags Jericho around. Shibata stands Jericho up, CLUBS him, then CHOPS! CHOPS! And CHOPS! Shibata kicks, CLUBS, and trips Jericho, to turn him! Jericho fights so Shibata ties the legs up into a DEATHLOCK! The fans fire up but Hook kicks! Shibata blocks! ANKLE LOCK!

Shibata has each man in a submission, but Hook kicks free! Hook DECKS Shibata, which puts pressure on the deathlock! Jericho turns over to get free of the hold, and Hook brings Shibata up. EXPLODER onto dice! Shibata bails out, Jericho hits a CODE BREAKER on Hook! Cover, TWO!! Hook survives, Jericho gears up, JUDAS- NO! REDRUM!! Jericho flails, there are no ropebreaks here! Hook has the body scissors!! Jericho flails, but here comes Big Bill’s BIG ELBOW DROP! The fans boo as the Redwood saves The Learning Tree! Bill rains down fists on Hook, then mocks the fans booing him.

Bill tells everyone to shove it, then he brings Hook out to the apron. Bill CLUBS Hook, gives thumbs up, and he CHOKE- NO, Hook fights the slam! Hook clinches, to EXPLODER through the table!!! The fans are thunderously losing their minds as Hook takes down the human skyscraper! Shibata has Jericho alone now, and CHOPS! CHOPS! And CHOPS! Jericho trips Shibata, turns him over, WALLS OF JERICHO!! Shibata endures, crawls through the dice, but Jericho drags him back! But Shibata rolls through, steps through, and has the FIGURE FOUR!! But Hook returns! REDRUM!! This is like on Dynamite!!

Jericho endures, fades, but someone else gets in the ring!? They STOMP Hook and SMACK Shibata with a trash can! This mystery man puts the can around Shibata, and then SENTONS! This person has a lucha mask, but they take it off to reveal… BRYAN KEITH!! The Bounty Hunter got the short end of the stick on Wednesday and now he’s sticking it to Hook and Shibata! But then speaking of sticks, Hook SMACKS Keith with the kendo stick! And SMACKS him again! And then TOSSES him out! JUDAS EFFECT!! Cover on Shibata, JERICHO WINS!!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by pinfall (still FTW Champion)

The Bounty Hunter screws over the two men he lost to, all to help the man he wanted after in the first place! Bill applauds while down in the wreckage, will no one ever cut down The Learning Tree? Hook is pissed, Jericho has security get in to stop him! Hook THROWS security around! Jericho runs away, Hook pushes past the cameraman to pursue! Hook isn’t done with Jericho, when and where will they settle this once and for all?

PLAY BY PLAY

Jon Moxley is here!

While The Maniac is going to face Konosuke Takeshita in a Title Eliminator regarding his IWGP World Heavyweight Championship, he’s here tonight at the sight of his AEW debut five years ago! That night was Double or Nothing 2019 and he gave Kenny Omega a Paradigm Shift onto the stack of giant poker chips, but it would seem he’s gonna be face to face with Don Callis now. Callis makes his way out to the ring now and fans boo him and his weird low bass rumble theme song. Callis says he has something important to say, and he tells Jon that he isn’t here to cause any trouble. Callis just wants to talk about their history.

Did everyone know that on Callis’ second night in AEW, he cost Moxley the AEW World Championship? Hey, he’s trying to talk to Moxley, stay out of this! The fans keep booing, but Callis says Moxley literally got his pound of flesh. Roll the footage of the night Moxley decked Callis and caused him to be cut open! Then Callis turned on Kenny Omega just a few nights later! Look at Moxley take advantage of that! Without knowing it, they both changed the course of this company! Every morning, Moxley is the first person Callis thinks about, because Callis sees this scar. TWENTY-FOUR stitches! For most, that’d be a deal breaker.

But Callis says he and Moxley aren’t like most people. Not like all of these normies in the crowd! Ironic of Callis to say that when these “normal people” want to see Moxley scar Callis again… But Callis says when he was in the hospital, Moxley opened the door. Callis thought Moxley was gonna finish the job! Moxley put his hand on Callis’ shoulder and said, “You’re one of us now.” Callis looked Moxley in the eyes, and what he saw was nothing! The same as when Callis looks in his eyes. The worst kept secret as that these two are a lot alike. They see everything, but feel nothing! They are “high-functioning sociopaths,” and pro-wrestling gave them a platform to change the world!

Thirty years ago, guys like them would be an institution somewhere! But they worked together and Moxley beat Omega. The fans tell Callis to STFU, but Callis tells Moxley that when Moxley said “You’re one of us now,” Moxley was right! Callis helped Moxley beat Omega, but who didn’t Callis didn’t have to help? Takeshita. And Jon, this isn’t a threat, but Moxley has Takeshita tomorrow and it kills Callis. Callis doesn’t want to see this match. Imagine instead, them on parallel yet separate paths, and just once, if they were going it he same direction! They could run AEW! Tony Khan couldn’t stop them! The UN couldn’t stop them!!

So Callis isn’t here to pitch anything, Moxley’s too smart for that. But just imagine what this could be like. They’re alike! They’re not alone! So instead of the eliminator, use that time to make an announcement about Moxley’s future with The Callis Family! What does Callis have to do to get this done? Moxley is taken aback, paces a bit, and fans want him to deck Callis already. Callis offers the mic and Moxley takes it. The fans sing, “F HIM UP, F HIM UP!” Moxley tells Callis, “Okay, just one question.” Anything! What is it? “Well, if you and I are gonna trust each other, if we’re gonna be on the same page, I’m gonna need more of a commitment than that little baby scar on your forehead right there.”

So how about 24 MORE scars in that big bald head of Callis’? But then Takeshita CLOBBERS Moxley from behind! This was the plan all along, wasn’t it? ALPHA ELBOW!! Takeshita then gets a chair, brings it in, and he puts it around Moxley’s arm! Takeshita stands on the arm, then goes up the corner! The fans boo and Takeshita flips Moxley off, before the DIVING STOMP!! Moxley’s arm could very well be broken inside the chair! And then Takeshita STOMPS the chair more! Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli rush out here and that sends The Callis Family running! The damage has been done, will Moxley be able to stop Takeshita tomorrow night?

 

AEW shares Will Ospreay’s message from after Dynamite last Wednesday.

“You think I look pretty bad about now, right? Nah, this is nothing. Mate, I’ve been on full night benders, woke up in the morning, had a bowl of Coco Pops, got on a plane to Japan, called out the toughest guy and whooped on him in front of his wife and kids while I was smiling, bruv! You think this is the end, Messiah? What, am I to believe in you, am I? You think this scares me? I EFFIN’ LIVE FOR THIS, BRUV! I flew all the way from England on a 10 hour flight, got transferred over the Bakersfield, and this is the best that you got? My Messiah, am I meant to believe in you? Am I meant to believe?

“Nah, mate. The only thing that i believe is bell to bell, internationally known, no one is better than me inside that ring. And now what you’ve done, mate, now what you’ve done is just bonded me with that championship. My blood is on that championship, so now it is my duty, it is my spirit, that is bonded with that championship! So Sunday, in the perfect city to do it in, bet it all, gamble your life on it, son. Cuz now, it is my last mission to take that International Championship from you! And Hell or high water, nothing, nobody, is better than Will Ospreay. Cuz I am on another level!” Will Roddy learn he’s not a Savior but a False Prophet of the Backbreaker?

 

Six Man Tag: Claudio Castagnoli, Daniel Garcia & ??? VS Lance Archer & The Righteous!

The Swiss Superman and the Dragonslayer are teaming together to take on The Murderhawk Monster, as well as good ol’ Dutch & Vincent, all to avenge what they tried to do to Bryan Danielson & FTR. But who is their third man, brother? It’s HIROSHI TANAHASHI! The Ace of the Universe, the President of NJPW, and one-third of the NEVER Openweight Six Man Champions is here on Collision! Will Ace-sachou be just the trump card Claudio & Garcai need to win big in Sin City?

The trios sort out, the fans lose their minds seeing Tanahashi, but we get Claudio and Dutch starting off. Claudio and Dutch tie up, are in a deadlock, and Claudio powers Dutch back to ropes. The ref counts, Claudio lets off cleanly, but Dutch uppercuts! Dutch headlocks, Claudio powers up and out, but Dutch RAMS him! Claudio RAMS back! Dutch RAMS again!

The fans are thunderous as Tanahashi air guitars and Garcia does his dance! Dutch runs in, Claudio catches him and trips him! The fans fire up, Garcia plays air guitar and Tanahashi does the dance!

Winners: Claudio Castagnoli, Daniel Garcia & Hiroshi Tanahashi, by pinfall

A huge moment for these three, and they celebrate with Garcia’s dance! Will, Claudio isn’t really into it, not his style. But will this mean big things are in store for Forbidden Door next month?

 

The following message is on behalf of The Elite.

“When it comes to the tireless work of your EVPs, the job is never done. While being the greatest tag team ever is glamorous, it is in the countless hours of thankless service to every single employee where Matthew & Nicholas find their true glory. From the global stars of AEW to the ring crew and everyone in between, The Elite always give back to the business that has given them so much. However, four men, four violent, ungrateful, ignorant, deranged men, want only to destroy what their humble, selfless work has built.” Anarchy in the Arena is coming, but for the fans, your EVPs will never shy away from adversity in their pursuit to #ChangeTheWorld.

So, clearly biased and edited to favor The Young Bucks, Kazuchika Okada & Jack Perry, but will The Elite stop at nothing to stay in control?

 

The Gunn Brothers VS The Lucha Brothers!

The Bang Bang Gang punked out Pac, and that sparked the flame that revived Death Triangle! But in order to make their coming Six Man Tag match for all the gold, Austin & Colten are taking on Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix in a battle of brothers! Will there be zero titles on the line at Double or Nothing? Or will there be CERO MIEDO!?

The teams sort out but things are tense. The ref has them all back off, and we get Penta starting against Austin. The fans rally with “CERO! MIEDO!” Austin is annoyed, he and Penta circle, and Austin mocks Penta’s swagger. Penta shoves Austin and tells him, “Listen! CERO! MIEDO!” And pie face! Austin says Penta should listen! “GUNNS!

Pac is here to celebrate with his hermanos! But Jay White hurries out to support the Gunns. The Switchblade vows that the Bang Bang Gang will keep their titles! But will they regret ever bullying The Bastard?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey.

Arkady Aura is with The Learning Tree & “Redwood,” and notes Jericho’s FTW Championship will be a Triple Threat after Hook and Katsuyori Shibata got a double submission victory. Does this bother Jericho at all? Bill says if he may be so bold, if there is one thing Jericho has always said, it is that when you face adversity, and you are facing the darkest hour, you have to dig deep to pull out the light. Bill is sure that applies here. Jericho agrees. And he loves Arkady’s name, it sounds like a place where you play video games. Anyway, to be serious, he was not expecting to have two opponents.

But now that he does, after 33 YEARS of being on top of the wrestling world, doing the greatest things that’ve ever been done, the fan support that he has, he knows he’ll have to work extra hard to retain the title. But as the longest reigning “For The World Champion” at 34 days, Jericho thinks he will come away with a win. When you’re The Learning Tree, you have to be ready to face all adversaries, and all different types of opponents. But then in walks Bryan Keith. The Bounty Hunter says he missed his shot, but he promises that this ain’t the last we’ve seen of him. Keith heads out, Jericho smiles and thanks him for that.

Will The Ocho defy the one-third odds he has to still be the one with the gold?

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS KM!

#CombatKyle is still a bit sore from losing to Malakai Black, but he isn’t gonna let The End be the end of his comeback! Will he just keep fighting until he’s going for gold?

The bell rings and Kyle runs up to fire off on KM! KM shoves Kyle, swings, but Kyle body shots, KICKS and KICKS! Kyle runs, but KM DROPKICKS him! KM fires up, wrenches and whips Kyle corner to corner hard, and he asks, “Who suck snow?!” The fans say “YOU!” KM runs in, but into a BOOT! KM comes back, into another boot! KM tries again, Kyle dodges the splash! GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! KM RAMS Kyle into buckles, but Kyle holds on tight, body scissors included! KM fades, so Kyle lets go to KICK! AX and- NO, KM blocks the smash! Then he blocks a kick! But Kyle blocks a haymaker to get the ARMBAR!! KM taps, Kyle wins!

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by submission

KOR > KM, and now Kyle is all fired up! Will Kyle be primed to fight for a title after AEW goes Double or Nothing?

 

Willow Nightingale is here!

The fans cheer as the TBS Champion, and her good pal Kris Statlander, heads to the ring. Kris leaves it to Willow from here, and Willow steps in the ring to get a mic. The Babe with the Power says, “Las Vegaaaaas~! Y’know, it feels really great to be here. And on the fifth anniversary of All Elite Wrestling, none the less. And we got Collision on TBS tonight, and you can’t have Collision on TBS without The Face of TBS!” The fans cheer that! Willow revels in their chants a moment before saying thanks. But she also thinks about last night’s Rampage, and how someone else put their hands on her TBS Championships: Mercedes Mone.

The fans are torn but mostly boo The CEO. Willow says Mone has been here about two months, and Willow keeps talking about respect. But we’re way past that now. Tomorrow night, Double or Nothing, Willow will WRECK Mone! She will make Mone long for the days when she was out of harm’s way, sitting at home on the shelf! And Willow knows that championships come and go. But she’ll be DAMNED if tomorrow is the night this reign ends! Because for years, Willow has been working towards HER dream. She’s had knee surgery! Not many known this, but she was almost PARALYZED by a neck injury five years ago, before ever getting to AEW!

So now, Willow gets to live her dream as TBS Champion. And Willow will go through Manitoba Massacres, she will hop on planes to go to Japan, 14 hours each way, and fight in a Stardom ring. So Mercedes, Willow is just getting started! The fans fire up for Willow and she nods. Willow tells Mone that Mone says Willow can’t beat her at 100%. But Willow knows Mone can’t beat Willow at any percent! Because last year, Willow did just that! And tomorrow, at Double or Nothing, she proves that the better woman IS Willow Nightingale! The fans are fired up as Willow holds that title high, but will she be holding it at the end of Sunday night?

 

Backstage interview with Trent Beretta.

Lexy Nair is with #JustTrent and says that he has all the moment going into his match with Orange Cassidy. Aside from that, this is also deeply personal. We saw Trent end Chuck Taylor’s in-ring career, is he going to try that with Cassidy? Trent says that he’s already said everything that he’s had to say about “that con-man narcissist.” Trent vows that tomorrow night, he shows the whole world something Trent’s known for a long time. But in steps Rocky Romero. Azucar knows they haven’t talked, he just wanted to see him before tomorrow night. It’s a big night, Trent’s been here since day one, lots of memories between what was The Best Friends.

No matter what, Rocky just hopes there is a way they can all put this all behind them. They’re more than Best Friends, they’re family! Trent says that’s not happening at all. And don’t ever interrupt him again. Trent leaves, Rocky isn’t sure what to make of that, is Trent already past the point of no return?

 

Fatal 4 Way Tag: The Acclaimed VS The Gates of Agony VS The House of Black VS The Infantry!

While The Young Bucks are busy with Anarchy in the Arena tomorrow night, they will need challengers for their AEW World Tag Team Championships at some point. This match will go a long way in clearing out the pack, who stands tall after this massive match as strong contenders?

But wait, Platinum Max has a diss track on deck! “The House of Black ain’t about s*it, a new ball gag would fit right in with those outfits! I treat Infantry like infants, getting overpowered. Fake American heroes, y’all’re stolen valor! I heard you rap but you’re not as cold as ours. You pissed me off, now you got the golden shower. From the tip of my pee niz to the top of your tongue, don’t talk about me, b*tch! I heard Brian Cage can’t stay hard, your other two guys, I don’t know what their names are! They still talk a big game, but in Vegas, Everybody Loves The Acclaimed!”

Bowens then takes the mic to say, “LAAAS VEGAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! Caster’s words really sting and those punchlines were smart, but will The Acclaimed return to the top of the tag charts?

The teams all sort out, and in this form of Fatal 4, only two teams are legal at a time. Caster and Carlie Bravo start, circle, and they tie up. Bravo rolls Caster up, ONE! Caster rolls Bravo up, TWO! Bravo sweeps to cover, ONE! Caster sweeps to cover, ONE! They stand off, Caster pushes Bravo but Bravo pushes back. They circle, Caster avoids the House of Black and tags Bowens. Bravo isn’t as aware, Buddy Matthews tags in off him. Buddy and Bowens circle, but then Bishop Kaun tags himself in! The Cameroonian Prince tells Bowens to split, then he ties up with the Aussie Juggernaut. Buddy headlocks but Kaun powers out. They RAM shoulders, then Kaun goes again.

They RAM shoulders again, Buddy hits a headlock takeover. Kaun headscissors, Buddy kips free, and the two stand off. Brody calls to Buddy, Buddy tags him in. But Kaun tags Toa Liona and the fans fire up for the big meaty men! Brody and Liona circle, they BLAST Infantry and Acclaimed! Then they run up to LARIAT! “MEAT!” The forearms fly, “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” Bowens gets in but Brody DECKS him! The “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” continues but Caster gets in. Liona DECKS Caster! The “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” gets going, both Infantry get in. Liona and Brody DECK them both! Then Brody ROCKS Liona!

Kaun runs up, Brody BOOTS him! Brody brings Liona up but Liona fireman’s carries! Brody slips free to HEADBUTT, but it hurts Brody! You never headbutt a Samoan! Liona fireman’s carries, Buddy runs up, so Liona dumps Brody to knee Buddy! Liona TOSSES Buddy out, UPPERCUTS him, then ROCKS Brody! Brody leans on ropes, Liona roars, but he runs, and Buddy dumps him out! The teams all fight o the outside, and BRODY DIVES!! Direct hit into the cluster, STRIKE! The fans are thunderous as we go picture in picture!

The House drags people up, Buddy SMACKS Bravo off steps, then THRWOS him into barriers! Brody CHOKES Caster then CLUBS him down! Bowens goes after Liona but Liona RAMS him into steel steps! Brody chokes Caster, Kaun is sent into barriers, and the House mugs Bravo. Brody CLUBS Bowens, Liona throws Shawn Dean around, it is just chaos on the outside! Buddy CHOPS Bravo, Brody CLUBS Bowens, The Gates mug Dean! The ref wants someone to get in the ring, so Liona and Brody storm in. They circle, snarl, but then Caster tags in off Brody! Caster stays back, Buddy tags in off Liona. Buddy runs up, Caster dodges to BACKHAND!

Caster has Buddy in a corner, goes up, but Buddy DUMPS Caster to the apron! But Caster ROCKS Buddy in return! The fans fire up as Caster climbs, but Buddy trips Caster up! Buddy climbs, he brings Caster up, and SUPERPLEXES! Cover, TWO! Buddy tags Brody, then he scoop SLAMS Caster! Brody runs to SENTON! Brody drags Caster up, Collision returns to single picture, and Brody CHPOS Caster down! Tag to Buddy, he ROCKS Caster. The fans rally, Buddy clamps on a SLEEPER! Caster endures, reaches out, and the fans rally more. Caster fights up, JAWBREAKERS, and then flounders.

Buddy anchors Caster’s foot, yanks him back and he BLASTS Bowens! Caster reaches for The Infantry but Buddy keeps Caster from them, too. The Infantry avoid the sucker punches, then Caster dodges Buddy! Infantry get in Caster SUPERKICKS Buddy! The Infantry DOUBLE SUPERKICK! Brody tags in, he misses wide, DOUBLE SUPERKICKS, then DOUBLE SUPERKICKS, then TRIPLE SUPERKICKS!! Brody finally falls, Kaun runs up! SUPERKICK from Caster! TRIPLE SUPERKICKS again! Liona runs up, he CLOBBERS Caster, then breaks through the Infantry’s line to DOUBLE CROSSBODY!

The fans are torn as Liona drags Caster over, tags himself in off Caster, then fires up. Liona runs in at Brody to SPLASH! “MEAT!” Buddy is up top! METEORA! Buddy turns around, Kaun uses Liona as a step for a FLYING SHOTGUN! Caster returns to fireman’s carry, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER on Kaun! Linoa throat chops Caster! Infantry mugs Liona, they hook him up, but Brody CLUBs them all! Brody fires off on Liona, reels him in, but Liona is so big! Linoa fireman’s carries to SAMOAN DROP! Cover, Caster breaks it! Liona glares and grabs Caster by his neck! Liona SHOVES Caster out, but Bravo tags in!

Bravo ROCKS Liona, DUMPS him out, then hurries in. There’s more brawling outside between Gates and Acclaimed, but The Infantry take the corners! They take aim, STEREO SUPER CROSSBODIES!! The fans fire up again and The Infantry are in. They dodge Brody, BOOT Buddy, SUPERKICK and FOREARM for Brody, repeat! They reel Brody in, but he powers out of the double suplexes! The Infantry bob ‘n’ weave, the brawling on the outside gets wilder as Billy Gunn and Brian Cage join in! The Infantry hook Brody up, but Buddy disrupts Boot Camp! Brody CLOBBERS Dean! The other teams are just gone, fighting all the way to the back!

Buddy has Bravo in a corner, the fans hoot with Brody, and he runs in at Bravo, CANNONBALL DROPKICK COMBO!! Cover, The House wins!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

Brody King & Buddy Matthews are truly a dangerous duo, will they be aimed right at the AEW World Tag Team Champions after Double or Nothing? Will Malakai Black step into the barbed wire steel cage and prove the House Always Wins?

 

Adam “Edge” Copeland speaks.

“Malakai… House of Black… You took the one item that kept me tethered to my comfortable world. The second I stepped foot in AEW, I knew it was only a matter of time before you’d set your sights on me. You were born out of the shadows that I cast. But I’ve been walking this path since before your balls dropped. But you’ve shown me. You’ve shown me where I need to navigate from. I need to go back to the pits. To the margins, to the outside looking in. You wanted this version of me, the version that has a devil on this shoulder, but no angel to be found.

“It’s fitting that this barbed wire steel cage match happens in the land of neon lights, and the violence that will take place within this steel cage is a fitting juxtaposition. Malakai, you said if I lose, I bend the knee, I join the House of Black. Oh, can you imagine? Can you imagine the force that we would be? And in a storybook ending, you defeat your influence, only we… We don’t deal in dreams. Our currency is nightmares, this is a horror story. Has it ever dawned on you, Malakai, that I used this to get closer to The House? What if I defeat you, and the House joins me?

“Buddy and Brody know the Devil that lives in my heart. I’ve been known to be a master manipulator. The House of Blood… That’s something I can sink my teeth into. Questions. So many questions. But Malakai, know this fact: When you see evil in a man’s eyes, it’s already too late.” Edge snaps his fingers and the lights go out. Will this darkness consume all of AEW as things get Rated R?

 

AEW shares Toni Storm’s message from after Dynamite.

“Serena Deeb… This isn’t for you. This is for everyone like you. This is for everyone that thinks that because they’ve had a sad life, it entitles them to some kind of reward. Nothing happens for a reason, darling. Things just happen. If everything happened for a reason, then there would be ONE main event at Double or Nothing, and it would be me talking for 40 minutes while you sit around and analyze my words like a Zapruder Film! But no, instead I have to fight for my life against a woman who thinks that twitching on the floor was a sign from the universe that she should keep wrestling!

“You want to be a victim? I will make you a victim. I will make your three seizures feel like a Sunday stroll in the bloody park! The saddest part about your life is that you thought it had any meaning at all. But don’t worry. In your obituary, they will mention that you lost to the champ.” The leading lady is even more vicious than ever, will she make sure Deeb never works in this town again?

 

Mariah May VS Leyla Hirsch!

Toni Storm’s protege is herself riding high after the big tag win on Wednesday, but now she’s got a LEGIT opponent standing across from her. Will Mariah still be able to shine on her own? Or will she be lost without her mentor by her side?

The bell rings, the fans rally, and the two circle. They tie up, Mariah powers Leyla to ropes, and the ref counts. Mariah lets off, Leyla runs up and gets around. Leyla shoves Mariah to a corner, runs up, but Mariah goes up and over. Leyla storms up on Mariah again, but Mariah CHOPS! Mariah shrugs, CHOPS again, then CHOPS again. Mariah CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Leyla ROCKS her! Leyla gets in Mariah’s face, or uh, chest rather. So Mariah makes sure Leyla gets a face full of it! The fans fire up, Leyla is flustered, and Mariah does a little dance. Leyla is furious, Mariah shrugs, and then Leyla clinches! BELLY2BELLY!

Leyla drags Mariah up but Mariah fireman’s carries! SAMOAN DROP! Mariah sits Leyla up, runs, and SHOTGUNS Leyla down! Mariah rocks out and Collision goes picture in picture.

Mariah swaggers around as the fans cheer, and she brings Leyla up. Mariah bumps Leyla off buckles, and puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOPS! Leyla shoves Mariah, Mariah scuffs her, then snapmares her. Mariah does a little prance then runs to PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO! Mariah clamps onto Leyla with a body scissors and full nelson, then shifts to a short arm scissor! Leyla fights around, powers Mariah to a pump handle and cording hold! Mariah throws Leyla off her, then DECKS her! Mariah continues to swagger, drags Leyla up and scoops, for the SPIN OUT SIDEWALK SLAM! Mariah is having a little too much fun as Leyla flops out of the ring.

Mariah goes out after Leyla, drags her up and fireman’s carries, but Leyla fights free. Leyla RAMS Mariah into steel steps! Leyla puts Mariah in, stomps her, then clamps on a rear bearhug! Mariah endures the squeeze, fights up to her feet, but Leyla whips her into a corner. Leyla runs up to ROCK Mariah, and she rolls to come back, SWINGING DROPKICK! Collision returns to single picture as the fans rally up for Mariah. Leyla drags Mariah into a drop zone, steps on her and climbs up. The fans cheer for Leyla, “SHE’S LEGIT! SHE’S LEGIT!” MOONSAULT FLOPS as Mariah moves! Mariah CLOBBERS Leyla!

Mariah LARIATS Leyla, BOOTS her, then hits a SAIDO! Fans fire up with Mariah and she goes to a corner. Mariah climbs, leaps and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Leyla is still in this but Mariah grits her teeth. The fans rally, Mariah drags Leyla up and bumps her off buckles. Mariah puts Leyla up top, CHOPS her, then storms around. Mariah runs corner to corner, to go into the STRATUSPHERE! Leyla flounders, Mariah says kiss this! SWEET HIP- NO, Leyla gets around to O’Conner Roll! Then she blocks a kick to get around and GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Mariah survives and Leyla is stunned!

Leyla hurries to drag Mariah up, the fans rally and duel, but Mariah ROCKS Leyla! Leyla gets Mariah in a clinch, but Mariah slips out! Mariah HEADBUTTS Leyla, then KNEES her down!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

And with that, Storm’s understudy puts away another one! Will Mariah be primed for a title opportunity of her own after Double or Nothing?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Double or Nothing!

After Brian Cage called The Acclaimed out last night on Rampage, and after the brawling that took them all out of the Fatal 4 Way tonight, Tony Khan has made a big Six Man Tag grudge match for The Buy-In! Will The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn get a big win on Sunday? Or will they fail to escape the #CageOfAgony?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexy is now with The Professor, and brings up those “vicious” comments by Toni Storm. We are less than 24 hours from their match, is Deeb ready? Deeb says tomorrow night is the biggest match of her career. Double or Nothing, or perhaps Deeb or Nothing. Toni Storm, in this lead up to the match, they’ve had some fun and games. Storm stole the banner, paraded around in it, but let Deeb ask you this: It wasn’t so fun when you had to throw in the towel and save that stooge, Mariah, from losing a leg, now was it? And Deeb is sure Mariah is grateful to Storm for making sure she could walk out of there that night. But Deeb can’t say the same for Storm.

Deeb will stretch Storm limb from limb, and it’s been a long time coming. Tomorrow night, Deeb finally becomes AEW Women’s World Champion! And “Timeless” Toni Storm will become Time’s Up Toni Storm. See you tomorrow night. The Professor is ready to teach the Leading Lady a life lesson, will it have to be learned the hard way?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Swerve VS Christian.

The Patriarch says, “Swerve, I felt it was apropos to return to the scene of the crime. The crime you committed against my son. My son, Nick, learned to walk in this ring before he could even run these ropes. Because you didn’t just jump my son, Nick, in a random wrestling gym. You jumped him on holy ground. An eye for an eye.” Swerve admits his methods were a “little misunderstood,” a little skewed, but he always got things done in the ring. No one can ever say Swerve didn’t deserve the world title. Christian hears a lot about Swerve’s House. And he told Swerve that he never forgets.

All In Wembley, Swerve embarrassed Christian. Christian said he’d make Swerve a footnote, but that’s no longer enough. Swerve must be held accountable for his crimes. Two years in AEW and people are still calling Swerve a footnote. He’s on TV, he promises AEW, he promotes AEW on radio and podcasts. He is the face of AEW, the world is forgetting Christian Cage. Christian reminds us that he is taking something from Swerve every week. For every ounce of Nick’s blood that was spilt, Christian is taking the title. Swerve asks if Nick’s yet to learn his lessons. Swerve doesn’t think they have it in them to do this to a world champion!

Swerve has built his house, and at Double or Nothing, he proves it’s whose house? The reason Swerve is not sleeping at home is because he’s too busy building this house! Christian vows to wipe Swerve from the annals of AEW, and to become the NEW AEW World Champion. Two fathers fighting for their families and their legacies, but whose house must suffer for the other’s to thrive?

 

Six Man Tag; Bryan Danielson & FTR VS Team Triple J!

The American Dragon & #TopGuys made it through Archer & The Righteous last week, but another faction just had to take The Elite up on that Double or Nothing bounty. Will Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh get another big bag of money for this hit job? Or will Bryan, Dax & Cash prove nothing’s gonna stop them before Anarchy in the Arena?

The trios sort out but Triple J keeps ’em guessing. Things finally settle down, and it is Bryan starting against Jarrett. They circle, tie up, and Jarrett arm-drags! And arm-drags again! And even a JAPANESE ARM-DRAG! Jarrett does the Fargo Strut, and he tags in Lethal! Bryan keeps cool as he and Lethal circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Lethal knees low. Lethal swaggers, pie faces, runs, but into a kitchen sink knee! Bryan KICKS Lethal, drags him up, and tags in Dax. Dax kicks Lethal, puts him in a corner, and CHOPS! And UPPERCUTS! And CHOPS again! Dax brings Lethal over, bumps him off buckles, then whips.

Cash tags in, then slingshots to SHOULDER TACKLE! The fans fire up and Cash bumps Lethal off buckles hard! Lethal sputters, Cash CHOPS him! Cash goes up, and he rains down fists! But Jarrett storms in, so Cash CROSSBODIES him! Lethal gets Cash but Cash atomic drops back! Cash finishes up on those fists, but Jarrett distracts the ref, and Satnam grabs Cash by the neck! HOTSHOT for Cash! Satnam drags Cash out to CHOP! Sonjay laughs at Cash, the ref tells Triple J to back off, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Satnam shoves Cash in for Lethal to drag around. Lethal has the leg, stomps it, steps through, FIGURE FOUR! Cash endures and his team coaches him but Lethal thrashes the leg! Cash reaches out, has to be careful about his shoulders, and he ROCKS Lethal! Lethal lets Cash go, but then CLUBS Cash! Lethal stomps and CLUBS Cash, then tags Jarrett in. They double whip but Cash reverses. Only to get caught in a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Jarrett taunts Dax, stomps Cash, then kicks him around. Jarrett stomps Cash more and more, then drags him up. Jarrett whips, ELBOWS Cash down, and he stays between Cash and his team.

Jarrett drags Cash around to drop elbows on the knee! Jarrett then clamps on a toehold and pulls on the leg. Cash endures, tries to fight back but Jarrett elbows him. Cash CLUBS away on Jarrett, Jarrett elbows him again, and Cash’s shoulders are down! TWO, and Cash CLAWS at Jarrett’s face! Jarrett lets go of the leg to stomp it! Jarrett KICKS the leg out, and Cash falls over again. Cash rises, but Jarrett KICKS the leg again! And then clamps on for a SHIN BREAKER! Jarrett drags Cash around, steps through, but Cash BOOTS him away! Jarrett hits buckles, falls back, and Collision returns to single picture!

Both men crawl for their corners, the fans rally, and Lethal jumps in to get Cash’s leg! Cash still jumps around, and hot tags Dax! Dax JABS, JABS and DECKS Lethal! And DECKS Jarrett! Dax whips Lethal, Lethal reverses but Dax snatches him for a package, TWO! Dax whips, Lethal reverses, and Satnam gets the cheap shot! LETHAL COMBINATION! The fans boo but Lethal storms up on Dax. Lethal drags Dax over, points to the big man, and the fans boo. But Lethal tags in the One in a Billion! Satnam dribbles Dax like a basketball! The fans do cheer the show of strength, and Jarrett says he and Lethal can just relax now!

Jarrett & Lethal take a seat in some chairs, Karen sitting on her hubby’s lap, and Satnam palms Dax’s head like a basketball! Cash AX HANDLES, but Satnam is just upset! Satnam SHOVES Cash up and out! Dax is in a corner, Satnam run sin, but Dax dodges! No more relaxing, Jarrett tags in! But so does Bryan! The fans fire up as Bryan fires hands on Jarrett! “YES! YES! YES!” The fans fire up as Bryan KICKS away on Jarrett, “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan climbs up to rain down fists! The fans count all the way to TEN, then Bryan whips corner to corner. Jarrett reverses, Bryan goes up and over and keeps moving! Bryan ducks ‘n’ dodges to LEAPING LARIAT!

Vegas is all fired up with Bryan and he runs to DROPKICK in the corner! Bryan keeps moving, another DROPKICK! Bryan keeps moving, but gets under Jarrett’s lariat to wrangle him! Omoplata, LEBELL LOCK! Lethal CLOBBERS Bryan! Cash storms in, DUMPS Lethal out, and then he calls to Bryan. Bryan builds speed, and DIVES while Cash PLANCHAS! Down go Lethal and Jarrett! Dax says OLE to Satnam and sends him into steel steps! Satnam hobbles his way into the ring, Bryan & FTR get in! They surround the giant, and they KICK! KICK! KICK! “YES! YES! YES!” TRIPLE KICKS rattle Satnam from all sides!

Bryan winds up, to BUZZSAW! FTR mock The Bucks, F T R TRIGGER!! And then BUSAIKU KNEE!!! Satnam staggers about! Lethal gets in, DOUBLE LETHAL INJECTION on FTR!! But Bryan DISCUS LARIATS Lethal! Jarrett reels Bryan in, but Bryan slips around! Jarrett still RAMS Bryan into buckles! The fans boo as now Karen gets Jarrett the guitar! But the ref snatches it! Aubrey’s been through this crap before and she tells Karen, “Not tonight, b*tch!” But then Sonjay gets Jarrett a chair! Jarrett aims at Bryan, takes a swing, but Bryan dodges and the chair SMACKS Satnam!! The giant tumbles up and out!!

Bryan aims, Jarrett panics, BUSAIKU KNEE!! Lethal runs in, into a SHATTER MACHINE!! Cover on Jarrett, Team AEW wins!

Winners: Bryan Danielson & FTR, by pinfall

Karen is furious but there’s nothing she can do about it! Cash gets a mic and says, “2020, FTR made the debut in AEW for the first time in our careers. Four years ago, that very moment, AEW became our home. AEW is where I will live, I will breathe, I will fight, I will DIE for this company! Everybody, wrestling fans, are better off because of AEW. Wrestlers are better off because of AEW! The entire wrestling world is better off because of All Elite Wrestling!” The fans agree with all of that! Cash says FTR & Bryan might be beat up, might be hurt, they and Darby Allin might limp into Double or Nothing. But Cash swears that they’re the only ones that’ll walk out!

Dax takes the mic to say that five years ago, almost to the day, in this building, the same people here tonight, this company started. Why is FTR fighting for AEW? It is not just this company that FTR is fighting for. They are fighting for every single man and woman that wakes up in the morning, goes to work, has a terrible day, but comes home, turns their TVs on, and watches AEW. And for that one moment in time, whether it’s one or two hours, all those problems are gone. One time a week, two times a week, FTR gets to be their hero. If they were to die tomorrow, Anarchy in the Arena, they will be your heroes. #TopGuysOut!

The fans are fired up, just like The American Dragon & FTR! Will they and the Relentless Darby Allin tear down the corrupt Elite to save All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A very good Collision, but it always feels like things get so talkie. And that kinda happened here because this was the go home show. All the promos were well done, as they almost always are, but were also in many ways redundant. Well, mostly the Chris Jericho one, but I guess him taking up screentime is part of the gimmick now. Willow’s was really good, too, but I wouldn’t say that changed the go home math or anything. Edge’s promo after that awesome Fatal 4 was also good, and I suppose that’s the promo that matters since he is now turning the tables on Malakai. Edge naturally would want to lead the faction rather than join it, but again something feels very Edge & Judgment Day about this, not sure what happens here.

Storm’s promo certainly helps her ride that Tweener line. On one point, yeah, she’s right, tragedy in life doesn’t entitle anyone to anything outside of sympathy. But at the same time, she sure didn’t show any sympathy to Deeb’s tragedy. Deeb’s response was also good, the title match will be great stuff, but surely Storm retains. And I will say that we got a very good video package for Christian and Swerve, I just wish it wasn’t also on the night bogged down by other promos. The irony is, this video could’ve been on the Countdown to Double or Nothing special from last night, but I wouldn’t know because I didn’t watch it. There must be fans who do watch it if AEW keeps doing them. But it just feels like after five years, AEW would’ve figured out how to not make things feel redundant.

Great opening promo from Moxley with Callis, and good ambush from Takeshita. I thought that with Double or Nothing only giving us a Title Eliminator, Takeshita would still win and force something for Forbidden Door. Now I don’t know. Maybe Takeshita defies the math and wins with cheating, or they go outside the box and have Moxley get disqualified because he’s just that pissed. Great opening Six Man Tag right after, with Hiroshi Tanahashi being a great surprise. A great win for the Faces there, and there’s any number of possibilities for Forbidden Door, but surely Tanahashi will want a part of that card.

Great tag match of Gunns VS Lucha Bros, but I figured Lucha Bros would win to force the trios title match. Granted, still don’t see Death Triangle winning out, but it’ll be a great match. And also of course another match is added to the Buy-In, it’s what happens with all AEW PPVs. Great filler squash of Kyle beating KM, Kyle should definitely be waiting on the other side of Double or Nothing for a title match, and it’d be fitting continuity if he went for the TNT Championship after having his matches with Edge and the House of Black. A good filler match from Mariah and Leyla, with a good win for Mariah. It’d be a bit copy-paste from ROH making Athena & Billie Starkz a mentor-mentee champion duo, but what if Mariah tried for the TBS Championship before going for the world title?

And great main event Six Man Tag, but of course the Faces won. Very good closing promos from FTR, though Dax has used his spiel about doing this for us, the hardworking folks, before and it’s a bit redundant again. I still want this to turn into AEW Avengers: Endgame or whatever, but the way things are going, I would think Team AEW, aka the Faces, find a way to win to motivate Bucks VS FTR “One last time” and at All In 2024.

My Score: 8.7/10
