Best Friends better be ready, because we all just saw the Best Bout Machine and the Problem Solver prove ring rust means nothing to them! Will Fyter Fest be the biggest fight of the champions’ reign?

 

AEW has big news for Fyter Fest!

Don’t have the money for a PPV? Don’t have a subscription to B/R Live? No problem! Fyter Fest will be a two-night televised event as part of AEW Dynamite! Wednesday, July 1st, and Wednesday, July 8th, will be AEW Fyter Fest 2020, and all the titles will be on the line! The Summer just got even hotter!

 

Tully Blanchard works to motivate Shawn Spears.

As seen on AEW’s YouTube today, the living legend gives a passionate speech. “What do you want your legacy to be?!” Does he want title belts for his kids to hold up proudly and say, “This is what my dad won!” If Spears doesn’t change something in his heart, that will NEVER happen! But then, later that day, Tully presented Spears with something. The #SearchForSpears is over. Here is the missing piece right here. Tully opens a case and reveals… A glove? Spears puts the glove on, and likes how it feels. But what will a simple addition to his wardrobe do for #PERFECT10N?

 

Brian Cage w/ Taz VS Shawn Dean!

“Who can stop the Path of Cage?” The answer has yet to be found, but can The Captain at least find a way to slow him down?

The bell rings and Cage immediately tackles Dean to a corner! And rams him in and over again! Cage wrenches and reels Dean into an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Taz loves what he sees as Cage drags Dean back up. Cage whips and POSTS Dean, then brings him out for a pump handle DRIVER! Cage looms over Dean as Dean goes to the apron. Cage brings Dean up to the corner, for a DEAD LIFT SUPERPLEX! Dean flounders and Taz laughs but Cage isn’t done yet. Cage drags Dean up, puts one out, and BUCKLE BOMBS him! Then the DRILL CLAW!! Cover, Cage wins!

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

The Machine barely broke a sweat. Taz gets a mic to speak. “So here’s the deal. I’ll pull the curtain back a little bit for you.” Taz and Cage were talking, and thinking about Dynamite from last week when Cage was dominant again. But Jon Moxley heard what Taz said what happens at Fyter Fest with the title on the line. Mox had the audacity to laugh as Taz was talking about the Machine kicking the living sh*t out of him. “We don’t play games, Mox” This is not a joke or a game. Moxley needs to get his head on right, or it’ll get taken off! That is Brian Cage! That is the Machine! Beat him if you can. Survive, if he lets you. But wait, here comes Moxley! The AEW World Champion marches in from the stands and heads right for ringside.

Moxley grabs himself a mic before getting in the ring with Taz and Cage, but Taz warns Moxley. Think and be careful. Moxley still enters the ring and says, “This is fun.” But Taz, the reason Moxley was smiling last week and tonight is the thought of stepping into the ring with “that level of intensity, with that level of aggression, and going to absolute war.” That makes him happy. It’s why he’s in this business. But Taz and Cage should be clear that stepping into the ring with Mox with the title on the line is the farthest thing from a game. Cage is impressive. Cage is a machine that is seemingly indestructible. Moxley is human, he can be beat. But it will take all night long to do it!

Taz is right that Cage is a different thing entirely. But Moxley is a different thing entirely. Taking the title from Moxley is a different prospect entirely, and you will learn that at Fyter Fest when you realize you’re swimming with a different breed of shark! So all due respect, gentlemen, don’t waste time trying to intimidate him. And the next time you say his name on live television, just remember who the hell you’re talking about! Are we in for the nastiest fight in all of wrestling with Fyter Fest?

 

AEW Media finds Lance Archer and Jake The Snake Roberts.

They’re on some random patch of land outside Daily’s Place, and the Murderhawk Monster is all but mauling a masked wrestler! Archer finishes the guy off by throwing him into construction pylons and barriers. So AEW wants to know what Archer’s been up to since Double or Nothing? DO you think that one loss means anything to him? After 20 years in this business, there is not one person in AEW that will stop him! He is no spot monkey, he is a MONSTER! If you want to know what a monster is about, he will show you pain and torture like you’ve never experienced before! #EverybodyDies, and he means that! Even Jake the Snake says Alex Marvez is lucky to be spared. Who won’t be on Archer’s hit list after his loss in the TNT Championship Tournament Finals?

 

Matt Hardy visits Private Party.

Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy drink to get over that Six Man Tag loss, but are shocked to see the tag team icon checking in on them. How’s the knee? Y’know, it’s doing alright. Quen shows off his dance moves, so clearly it’s more than alright. But Hardy wants to let them know that he enjoyed that match last week. Private Party is the future of tag team wrestling. So to share something, Private Party’s bond reminds him of his bond with his brother, Jeff. OH WOW! But a lot of guys helped the Hardy Boys, so Matt wants to help them. Oh they are so ready for that! Private Party wants to Hardy Party. That’s catchy. Knew it! Hardy loves the enthusiasm, so just hit him up.

Hardy heads out and crosses paths with Sammy Guevara on his scooter. Hardy says they’re cool now. #Respect. Hardy continues past Sammy, but is everything cool from Sammy’s side of things?

 

AEW shares the fallout of the Jericho-Tyson confrontation.

Every sports and entertainment news outlet exploded with reactions to the Inner Circle’s pep rally being crashed by “Iron” Mike Tyson and his crew. Tyson himself warns us that this is not over! “I’m coming back and Jericho’s gonna get his ass kicked!” Jericho was furious in his own right, but his fury was then directed at Colt Cabana when Cabana just wanted him to calm down. Le Champion looks to teach Cabana and lesson and send Tyson a message, tonight!

Chris Jericho VS Colt Cabana!

The bell rings and Jericho tells Cabana to mind his own business. Jericho shoves Cabana but Cabana fires off punches and stomps! Jericho rakes Cabana’s eyes and throws hands on him in the corner. The ref backs Jericho off but Jericho comes back, showing off his boxing hands. But then Cabana DECKS him! And CHOPS him! And punches away to then whip him out of the ring! Jericho staggers up but Cabana CHOPS him again! And headlock punches him, and clubs him to the ring. Jake Hager is upset but has to keep his distance. Cabana dodges Jericho and ASAIS onto Jericho and Hager!

Cabana high fives the crowd and wipes the blood from his lip. He brings Jericho up for more punches and body shots, then bumps him off the timekeeper’s desk. Jericho hits back but Cabana put shim in the ring. Jericho pleads with the ref, and Hager POSTS Cabana! The crowd boos but Big Hurt gets away with that one. Hager and Sammy cheers while Cabana is down, and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Jericho kicks Cabana between the ropes. HE stalks Cabana to a corner and digs his knee in. The ref counts, Jericho lets off, but Jericho grins while the crowd rallies for Cabana. Jericho throws hands on Cabana to keep him down, then slaps him around. Cabana SLAPS back! Cabana CHOPS and forearms, but Jericho kicks low to whip. Jericho elbows Cabana down then covers, TWO! Hager tells Cabana to stay down but Jericho brings Cabana up. Jericho bumps Cabana off buckles and throws more haymakers. Cabana pushes Jericho away then punches and CHOPS back! Cabana backs Jericho down but Jericho hits back. Jericho whips, runs, but the bulldog is sent to the POST! Sammy and Hager panic but the crowd fires up for “Colt! Colt!”

Cabana gets up to ROCK Jericho but Jericho throws hands back. We have a brawl but Cabana gets the edge. Cabana whips and clotheslines Jericho down! Then whips again, but Jericho reverses. Cabana dodges and JABS! JAB! Flip flop ‘n’ fly for the BIONIC ELBOW! Jericho is up and Cabana runs in,. FLYING APPLE! Jericho is down, Cabana is up, SUPERMAN SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Cabana can’t believe it but Jericho survives. Cabana throws haymakers and runs, but into a back elbow! Jericho runs, LIONSAULT but he lands on his feet as Cabana moves! Another elbow, Superman Clutch, but Jericho makes it the WALLS! Cabana endures as Jericho sits deep, but Cabana powers his way over, to get the ROPEBREAK! Jericho lets go, thinking he won. The referee explains he didn’t, and he’s upset. Jericho runs, into Cabana’s CHOPS!

Cabana runs, tilt-o-whirls and huricanranas  Jericho to a corner! Corner clothesline and then Cabana hoists Jericho up top! Cabana climbs, SUPER STEINER! Cover, TWO!! Jericho still lives but Cabana won’t let up! La Magistrol, TWO! Cabana CHOPS and whips, but Jericho reverses. Cabana goes up and around, into JUDAS EFFECT!! Cover, Jericho wins!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by pinfall

The Inner Circle shrugs off the bad week they’ve been having, and then he says, “All of you can shut your ass and address Le Champion with respect.” The crowd only boos harder as Jericho says we saw what happened to Cabana. That’ll happen to Iron Mike, “that piece of sh*t!” The most talked about event in sports history happened in this ring last week, and Tyson VS Jericho is the fight everyone wants to see. Jericho wants it, he is ready. He can taste Cabana’s blood on his fist, now he wants to taste the blood of Tyson when he shoves Tyson’s head up his own ass! Jericho won’t wait for next week, next PPV or next Christmas. He wants Tyson here and now! Jericho is calling out “the baddest man on the planet!” Le Champion is waiting for Tyson! Where’s the baddest man on the planet?! Jericho’s right here, so where’s Tyson?! Is Tyson scared?!

But instead of Iron Mike, he gets Freshly Squeezed! The Sloth gets in the ring and steps to Jericho for the beating Proud ‘n’ Powerful gave him. And he makes Jericho put his hands in his… well, his belt. And then Orange Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets! Hager swings on Cassidy but Cassidy dodges! Cassidy dodges Jericho, then bails out of the ring! Best Friends help Cassidy up and over the railing, and Santana and Ortiz hurry out. The Inner Circle wants after Tyson, but now they have eyes on Cassidy, Trent and Chuckie T! Will they get their hands on all their enemies as the Summer rolls in?

 

AEW checks in on Britt Baker.

The Role Model rehabs her injured leg and keeps up with her general cardio, but with a far more reduced level of intensity. Plus, Rebel is there to help her with a lot of the heavy lifting. Even Tony Schiavone is cheering her on. Will the Role Model stay on a roll and be ready for All Out in September?

 

Nyla Rose VS Big Swole!

The Native Beast lost the AEW Women’s World Championship at Double Or Nothing, but with all titles on the line at Fyter Fest, there’s always a chance at redemption. But Aerial Monroe is hungry for her first chance, will she be able to get past Nyla to head for Fyter Fest?

The bell rings and the crowd is on Swole’s side. Swole flexes and dodges Nyla, then waistlocks. Nyla elbows but Swole keeps out of reach. Swole headlocks but Nyla throws body shots. Nyla powers out but Swole dodges to get the headlock back! Nyla denies the takedown with power, but Swole throws elbows. Swole tries again but can’t throw Nyla down. Nyla throws body shots and lifts Swole, but Swole uses the leverage for the takeover! They go around on the mat, Nyla make sit a cover, but Swole gets back to her feet. Nyla pulls hair but Swole rolls Nyla up! TWO, and the two back off to reset. The crowd continues to rally as Swole and Nyla circle.

Nyla whips Swole, Swole comes back and rams shoulders. but neither falls. Swole tries again, but Nyla doesn’t even budge. Nyla grabs hair, runs, but into a cobra twist from Swole! Swole stretches Nyla and digs in an elbow! Nyla elbows out and hip tosses, but Swole blocks! Swole turns things around but Nyla blocks the hip toss to TOSS Swole!

Nyla puts Swole in and gets in everyone’s face. She goes back to the ring while Britt talks trash from her “Role’s Royce,” and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Swole throws body shots. Nyla scoops Swole for a backbreaker! Nyla bends Swole back across the knee but the crowd rallies. Swole endures so Nyal dumps her down, to then run and splash onto knees! Nyla gasps for air as Swole gets up. Swole throws hands over and over, and ROCKS Nyla with that forearm! Swole fires off more strikes, Nyla dodges one roundhouse but not the second! Swole HEADBUTTS and Nyla staggers to a corner. Swole runs corner to corner for an uppercut!

Swole gets a waistlock, ripcord, Dirty- NO! SIT OUT SPINE BUSTER!! Cover, Nyla wins!!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

Hikaru Shida was watching from the crowd, and she saw for herself that the Native Beast hasn’t lost a step just because she lost the title. Will Nyla be the one to step to the champion for Fyter Fest?

Ringside interview with Big Swole.

Having months off, she still came back with a great fight for Nyla. It is good to be back, and Swole has been re-centered. It doesn’t matter that she lost, because she’s got the fans and her peers behind her. Wait, Britt is making a fuss about Rebel backing the cart up. The “Role’s Royce” RAMS the railing?! Britt gets at Swole for saying she’s the fan favorite. Swole takes offense, and grabs a chair! Britt freaks out and has Rebel drive away in retreat. But they crash into other railing on that side! Swole throws the chair at the cart and dares Britt to come get some. Will Swole get after The Dentist the second she can compete in the ring?

 

Backstage interview with Darby Allin.

One of the toughest ever in the ring never lets an injury from keeping him out, but this time, the doctors have said Darby cannot get in the ring. Going back to Double Or Nothing’s Casino Ladder Match, does Darby think Brian Cage’s focus on him has anything to do with Darby rejecting Taz’s help? “Life’s one big joke.” But Darby vows to get the last laugh. When and where will Darby look to spring the punchline on Taz and The Machine?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews #FTR.

Tony is very honored to have the first exclusive sit-down with Wheeler and Harwood, who arrived a week ago to confront the biggest names in the AEW Tag Team Division. The obvious question must be asked: What does FTR stand for? Well there are a lot of things. It is not a tagline that can just be served out. It is a way of life. It is anything that you want it to stand for. Fear The Revolution, Follow The Rules, just something that took a life of its own. They are here, the pinnacle of the wrestling revolution! So right now, think of it as Wheeler and Harwood being For The Revolution. Yes, AEW has the world’s greatest tag teams now. So there must be a list of dream matches, right? Yes, they’ve thought about this for a year and a half now. Despite what happened last week, FTR will give The Butcher & The Blade their due respect. Private Party are great kids, Proud ‘n’ Powerful have been all over, and now they’re all under the same roof.

The same goes for the Lucha Brothers, Pentagon & Rey Fenix. They’re the exact opposite of how FTR wrestles, so Wheeler & Harwood will teach them real tag team wrestling! And of course, the AEW World Tag Team Champions, Kenny Omega & Hangman Page, even though that’s not a “real” tag team. That is the ultimate goal all the same. But what about the Young Bucks? They’re what tag team wrestling is all about. Well of course. That is the “dream match” to all the fans, but it isn’t one to FTR. Wheeler & Harwood had to sit back and watch the Bucks be gifted “Tag Team of the Decade,” and had to listen to Dave Meltzer sing their praises as “the next Midnight Express.” Do you think that makes FTR happy? Do you think they enjoy all this? They don’t! They don’t want to come in and have the greatest tag team match ever with The Bucks, they want to punch the Bucks in the mouths.

Well then why didn’t FTR brawl with The Bucks after clearing out Butcher & Blade? FTR has dreamed about this moment for five years. You can’t say one team’s name without the other’s. Everyone wonders who is better. And when it comes to finally having it out, FTR doesn’t want there to be any excuse. “Oh~, they were softened up, they were injured, they had a bad back.” FTR wants The Young Bucks to be healthy, to be in the best shape of their lives, so they can beat them. FTR wants commentary to then come to them and apologize for the last year and a half. Tony is sure whatever happens, it will be amazing. Tony thanks them for this time, and has to admit, this whole time he thought FTR stood for… Well, can they say it here? “F*** The Revival.” Well of course people would think that.

Whoa, here come Butcher and Blade! Andy Williams and Braxton Sutter are furious to say the least, and accuse FTR of thinking they’re all tough and what not. Security rushes in to keep another brawl from happening. FTR says it was nothing personal. That was business. FTR are businessmen. But if you want to make it personal, let’s settle this in the ring. And then Cash splashes water at Blade! “See you next week! FTR, out!” But will FTR be able to handle their business against a furious pair of cutthroats?

 

AEW sets up for another big episode!

After losing to Le Champion, Colt Cabana tries his luck against the Spanish God! Cabana VS Guevara is coming! The Open Challenge Cody Rhodes has put for the TNT Championship has already been answered, by Private Party’s Marq Quen! But the question will be, who does Quen face after the main event of Cody VS Jungle Boy? And as we saw, FTR challenged Butcher & Blade, and that match is happening to give Wheeler & Harwood their in-ring debuts! Plus, after the confrontation between Cassidy and the Inner Circle, he and the Best Friends take on Jake Hager, Santana & Ortiz in Six Man Tag action! Has a new war in AEW just begun? And don’t miss Jon Moxley’s return to in-ring action, on AEW DARK!

 

Backstage interview with Colt Cabana.

His most impressive AEW performance yet in a loss to Chris Jericho, but that’s why Cabana is here. He’s shown he can hang with the big guys in the spotlight. But those big victories are hanging over his head. He couldn’t beat Lance Archer, he couldn’t beat Chris Jericho, and… Mr. Brodie Lee walks in with his Dark Order spokesman. “Loss is a part of life, Colt. We’ve all suffered losses, but without losses, we don’t grow.” It is what you do after a loss that defines you. And Brodie can help Cabana. The spokesman gives Cabana a bottle of water, and asks he simply consider it. Cabana says he doesn’t want to #JoinDarkOrder, but he does drink the water. But if things get worse, will Cabana soon be drinking the Kool-Aid?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Cody Rhodes VS Jungle Boy!

The American Nightmare overcame the odds and won this title at Double Or Nothing! But once again, Cody puts so much pressure on himself to be THE workhorse of AEW, promising to wrestle week after week after week, all in TNT Championship defenses! Will he stumble right out of the gate and give Jungle Jack Perry the biggest moment of his career? Or will Cody prove that he is the leader AEW deserves?

AEW returns as Cody makes his entrance. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and history is being made again! Cody and JB circle and test the waters with the lunges. Cody gets the waistlock as the crowd duels, and he slams JB down. Cody facelocks but JB gets a ropebreak with the legs. Cody lets up fast and resets. JB comes back and circles with Cody again. They tie up, Cody brings JB to his knees with leverage, then shifts to a headlock. Cody hits the takeover but JB rolls to a cover. ONE and Cody keeps the headlock. They stand up, JB throws body shots and powers out. Cody runs JB over then keeps going, and things speed up. JB hurdles, runs and huricanranas! Cody gets up but JB rolls him up, TWO! JB keeps close and gets another cover, TWO!

JB goes to a corner, dodges Cody and CHOPS back! And again! Cody turns things around to forearm and CHOP right back! JB forearms., Cody forearms and he sits JB down. Cody drags JB up by a wrist and wrenches hard before whipping corner to corner. JB reverses, runs in but slides under as Cody goes up and over. JB turns around to run into the spinning poerslam! Cover, TWO! Cody keeps on JB to try again, ONE! Cody keeps his cool as the crowd rallies up. He goes to the ropes to springboard and stomp JB’s legs. Cody stomps the legs more, then gets the Figure Four! JB endures the legendary leg lock, but has to keep his shoulders up. Cody cranks but JB crawls, and JB gets the ropebreak! Cody lets go at 4, and JB gets to the apron. Cody grits his teeth as he runs to triangle jump! JB avoids the kick to then springboard and TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO!! JB tries again, TWO!

Cody crawls to the apron now but JB runs and DIVES! Direct hit sends Cody into barriers but JB keeps going! DIVE, but Cody catches him! Cody SWINGS Jb into the Gunn Club! Billy and Austin can’t believe Cody’s aggression as Cody goes for the timekeeper’s table, but AEW goes to break.

AEW returns once again, and JB flops out of the ring. Cody goes out to fetch JB and headbutts him! JB staggers to the stage, and dodges the second headbutt! Cody hits the wall! Cody staggers and JB shakes out the cobwebs. JB tells MJF to shut up as MJF mouths off about JB not deserving this shot at Cody and the title. MJF calls JB a joke, but JB taunts back, “How’s the chest?” MJF takes off his scarf and jacket but JB leaves him where he is. JB goes back to Cody, who is BLEEDING from hitting his head right into the stage! JB is shocked to see that, but he still gets Cody into the ring. The ref checks on Cody but Cody doesn’t want to stop. JB runs in to forearm and punch away on the wound! The ref backs JB off but JB runs back in. Cody puts JB into buckles then tosses him away! But JB returns to shotgun dropkick and inside cradle! TWO, but JB waistlocks to O’Conner roll! TWO, and Cody BOOTS JB down!

Cody flounders with the blood getting in one eye. Cody crawls over to where he left JB but gets to his feet instead. He drags JB up and whips, but JB comes back with a LARIAT! Cover, TWO!! Cody survives but JB is right on him. JB traps the arms and rains down rights! Cody pushes JB away but JB hurries back. JB goes to the corner, climbs up top, but Cody dropkicks him first! JB wobbles and Cody climbs up to bring him around, for a stalling SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO! JB survives and Cody’s half crimson mask is growing. Cody takes off the weight belt but the ref tells him not to lash JB. Cody tosses the belt aside and grabs a leg, but JB pushes Cody out. The timekeeper’s area is precariously close but Cody keeps from falling down. Cody climbs up but JB clubs him first!

JB climbs up to join Cody now but Cody fights back. Cody brings JB up but JB fights. The two teeter, and they fall down through the table!! Arn Anderson is speechless while the ref and medic check on both men. “This is Awesome!” but can either continue? Cody stirs but so does JB. Cody drags JB from the wreckage, wanting this to end in the ring. He puts JB inside and has to shoulder into JB. Cody slingshots to sunset flip but JB sits on it! TWO!! JB swings into the dragon sleeper, the CROSS RHODES!! Cover, Cody wins!!

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

The Nightmare Family and Jurassic Express head out to check on both their men. Cody clears the first hurdle of his own challenge, and he helps JB to his feet. Will Jungle Boy be back for a second chance at this title? Will Marq Quen be the one to take the gold? Or will Cody carry this title until the wheels fall off?


My Thoughts:

An incredible episode book-ended by great title matches. The AEW World Tag Team Championship match was really good, and a great return to form for Omega and Hangman as a duo. There’s no more dysfunction thanks to the Stadium Stampede, but it’s obviously of note that the Tag Division as a whole is just getting stronger every week. FTR had a really good interview promo with Tony Schiavone, and I love how they spun the story with the Young Bucks. Their in-ring debut against Butcher & Blade next week will be great, and I’m sure the dream-not-dream match of FTR VS Bucks will be for All out, and will be just insane. And of course, Omega & Page VS Best Friends for Fyter Fest will be great, too, but too close to call at this point. Best Friends & Orange Cassidy being next for Inner Circle while there’s also Jericho VS Tyson coming on the side is also great. I would love if Tyson became an honorary Best Friend by helping them against The Inner Circle.

Also, I love that Fyter Fest isn’t just a free PPV online, it is a free two episode special for Dynamite! This will give us the same four hours of action, but with some room to breathe for viewers. Having all the titles on the line is basically standard, so it’s good to know that the next month is going to be build towards the event. Nyla VS Swole was really good, but it makes some sense for Nyla to win. Losing one match doesn’t change that Nyla is still a monster and can easily come back for that belt. Britt has a hilarious cheesy vignette and an equally goofy attempt at getting after Swole. I really hope Britt VS Swole is what we get for All Out, that’ll be a great return match for Britt, but it should also result in Swole getting a big win. An obnoxious Heel is only as good as the comeuppance they get, and that’d be the perfect time for Britt to get hers.

Taz and Moxley had a great promo battle that was better than Cage squashing Shawn Dean. Moxley VS Cage is going to be incredible and I hope it goes for half an hour on Night 2. Jericho has a great promo calling out Tyson, has a great match with Cabana, and Cabana’s story with the Dark Order is definitely going places. Cody VS Jungle Boy was also incredible, and it definitely raises JB’s level even in losing. I’m surprised the next challenger is Marq Quen given he’s a tag team wrestler, but I suppose that’s not always a limitation. This will give Quen a great spotlight of his own, but I’m thinking Cody wins. I feel like MJF is going to get fed up watching Cody beat other wrestlers and he’ll demand to be the Fyter Fest challenge. Then Cody will finally get the win on MJF that he wanted at AEW Revolution.

My Score: 9.3/10

Just last night on Rampage, The Spanish God called out the Don Callis Family, and then got jumped by the Don Callis Family! Callis and the rest of the family has been banned from ringside, as has Chris Jericho, this must be settled between Sammy and Hobbs! Will there be anything left of Sammy to return home to his wife and daughter? Or will The Book of Hobbs call for no mercy and no remains?

The moment Hobbs hops off the corner, Sammy JUMP KNEES! The bell rings, Sammy runs up to JUMP KNEE again! Hobbs staggers around, but he catches Sammy to TOSS him to a corner!

Hobbs moves the other set of steps around, brings Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into railing! Hobbs asks Kevin Kelley what he’s going on about but Kevin isn’t sure Hobbs means. Hobbs tells Kevin to stand up so Kevin does, and then Hobbs demands Kevin hand over his belt. His belt? Hobbs tells him again, give over the belt. Kevin gives in and hands said belt over. Hobbs then takes the belt and uses it to LASH Sammy on the back! Fans are torn but Hobbs LASHES Sammy again!

Sammy writhes, Nigel tells Kevin this is his fault. Hobbs winds up, Sammy dodges the belt to SUPERKICK! And SUPERKICK again! Sammy grabs a chair, and he SMACKS Hobbs with it! And then HEADSHOT!

Sammy has security move aside, so he can slide that chair off the table and into Hobbs! Sammy then adds another table! If one is good, more must be better! The fans fire up with Sammy as he has those side by side. Hobbs goes to the apron but Sammy climbs up. Sammy aims and leaps, but Hobbs catches him again!! And he SPINEBUSTERS Sammy through the tables!!! All of Springfield, Missouri lose their minds while the ref checks on both men, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Sammy survives and now Hobbs is furious! Hobbs runs to BOOT Sammy down! Hobbs goes out while Sammy flops off the apron. Hobbs looks around under the ring, and he brings out a fourth table! The fans fire up as Hobbs brings this one to the ramp side. Hobbs sets that up, stomps Sammy to keep him down, then he goes to fetch a fifth table! The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

The fans fire up as Hobbs ends up on the tables! The fans give Sammy another beer, to SMASH it on Hobbs again! Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a LADDER! The fans are loving it, because now we’ve entered TLC territory! Sammy gets that ladder in the ring while the fans lose their minds! Sammy moves table number three outta the way so he can stand his ladder up. And it’s a big ladder! Fans chant “Please Don’t Die!” because this is extra crazy even for Sammy!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are ready for another fight with the BCC, but for right now, they’ve got the STP! Will the #TopGuys still be FTR? Or will Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor himself prove they’re in that conversation now?

The teams sort out and Dax starts against #TAIGASTYLE. Lee and Dax tie up, Lee waistlocks and headlocks, then wrenches to hammerlock. Lee shoves Dax then claps at him, but Dax keeps it cool. Dax tags Cash, Cash runs up but Lee avoids him. The two feel things out, tie up and go around, then break the deadlock. They reset, tie up again, and Lee wrenches to spin Cash and wrangle him. Lee steps over, has La Magistrol, TWO! Lee pushes Cash around and then dances at him. Cash storms up but Lee backs off. Lee smirks at Cash then resets with him. They tie up, Lee headlocks, but Cash powers out.

Cash drops, drops, and hurdles to then ELBOW Lee down! Then arm-drag! Cash has the armlock and he slaps Lee around. Cash tags Dax, whips Lee, drop toehold and elbow drop! Fans rally up and Dax brings Lee up. Dax wrenches but Lee powers him to the corner! Tag to Shane but Dax gets away. Shane and Dax circle, talk some trash, and tie up. Dax headlocks, Shane powers up and out, but Dax RAMS him! Shane says not today! Dax runs again, RAMS again, but Shane stays up. Dax RAMS Shane again, and again, but Shane scoops! Dax slips free, waistlocks, but Shane bucks the O’Conner. Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges, but stays back to avoid hands.

The fans fire up as Dax and Shane reset, tie up, and Dax headlocks. Shane powers up and out, Dax SHOTGUNS him! Shane comes back but Dax avoids the senton! Dax wrenches, but Shane LARIATS! Shane drags Dax up, tags Lee, and STP mugs Dax. Lee throws knees, snapmares Dax and basement dropkicks! Lee drags Dax up, ROCKS hi, but Dax puts him in a corner to CHOP! And CHOP! Dax brings Lee around, wrenches, but Lee ROCKS Dax! And CHOPS him! Dax CHOPS again! And again! Lee swings, Dax ducks and picks Lee up, but Shane tags in before the atomic drop! Lee hobbles away, Dax ROCKS Shane!

Dax runs up to whip Lee but Lee reverses. Dax rebounds off buckles to CLOBBER Lee, but Shane CLOBBERS Dax! Cover, TWO! Dax survives, Shane talks trash on Cash, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Dax up, puts him in a corner, then winds up to CHOP! Dax sputters and Shane talks more trash. Shane stands Dax up, winds up, and CHOPS again! Shane keeps Dax in the corner, whips him corner to corner hard, and Dax falls back! Shane talks more trash to Cash but the ref keeps Cash back. Shane tags Lee, STP mugs Dax and Lee puts Dax in a corner. Lee fires forearms, then climbs up to rain down fists! Lee gloats but Dax CHOPS from below! Lee stomps but Dax CHOPS! They clinch, go around, and end up on ropes. Shane tags in, he throws hands on Dax! Shane scoops and SLAMS Dax, then stares Cash down while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Shane has Dax in a bearhug! Dax endures the squeeze but the fans rally up. The ref checks Dax, the hand drops once. The hand drops twice! But then Dax comes back to life! And he BITES Shane’s forehead! The ref reprimands but Shane lets Dax go. Dax back suplexes, but falls over under Shane! Shane covers, TWO! Tag to Lee, and STP gets Dax up. Lee whips Dax but Dax turns the back drop into a cradle! TWO, and Dax CHOPS! Dax puts on a SLEEPER, but Lee RAMS him iont a corner! Tag to Shane, Dax fires hands on STP!

Lee waistlocks, Cash switches, but Lee switches! Cash bucks the O’Conner but Lee distracts the ref so Shane can DECK Cash! Lee rolls Cash up, TWO!!! Cash survives but Lee brings him up. Lee whips Cash at the corner but Cash BLASTS Shane! Cash goes up and over Lee, then does it again! Tag to Dax, sunset flip leads to the pop-up, BULLDOG BOMB! Cover, FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Ladybird Monroe!

La Mera Mera is ranked #2 in the Women’s Division, and we know the AEW Women’s World Championship is spoken for in terms of a challenger. Will Rosa then look to solidify her spot in the TBS Championship chase?

The bell rings and Rosa circles with Monroe. They tie up, go around, and Rosa waistlocks to SLAM Monroe down. Rosa then facelocks, waistlocks, but Monroe switches. Rosa pries the hold to switch, hammerlock, and then chicken wing! Rosa wants the crossface, too, but Monroe wrenches out to hammerlock back. Monroe pulls hair, talks trash and CLUBS Rosa. Rosa gets mad now. Monroe whips, Rosa reverses and CHOPS! Monroe goes to a corner, and Rosa CHOPS her again! Rosa fires off forearms then bumps Monroe off buckles! Rosa says this is how you climb the ladder! Rosa CHOPS Monroe again!

Rosa winds up but Monroe ducks this chop to stomp Rosa in return. Monroe pie faces and CHOPS Rosa, then CHOPS! Monroe winds up, UPPERCUTS, then snapmares! Monroe cartwheels but Rosa avoids the boot!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall

“You see this? I’m climbing the ladder, because as we know, Thunder Rosa knows how to work hard.” Rosa vows this is her time, will her comeback be unstoppable?

 

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

 

Six Man Tag: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn VS The Iron Savages & Jacked Jameson!

As the Bang Bang Scissor Gang looks to dominate all of AEW & ROH, they are trying a team remix! Max Caster has a rap for the occasion! “Acclaimed & The Bang Bang, we the real savages. ‘Bout to bring the fight like me against management! These guys’re so mad, they prolly see red!” Oh no, Caster loses the flow! This is a travesty! Bowens takes over to say, “SPRIIINGFIELD, MIZZOU-REEE~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~! Will Billy, his son Colten, and the Switchblade make a killer trio? Or will they all end up sipping the Savage Sauce?

The trios sort out and White wants to start, but so does Billy. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” so White says okay, Billy can start. Billy stares down Beefcake Boulder and the two circle. They tie up, Billy headlocks but Boulder powers up and out! Billy RAMS Boulder, neither falls, and Boulder shows off #TiddyCity! Billy says okay, “SUCK IT!” and eye poke! Billy then runs Boulder over! The fans fire up, Billy runs and drops an elbow, but Boulder moves! Boulder then runs Billy over! Boulder swivels hips, tags Bulk Bronson, and they get Billy up. It’s time to visit the city! But Billy turns it around and shoves Bronson into Boulder!

Billy brings Bronson over, tags Colten, and they whip, body shot, BOOT and DROPKICK! The father-son combo has the fans fired up, and Colten brings Bronson up. Colten whips Bronson to a corner as White argues with Jacked Jameson. Colten goes to a corner, finger guns with his dad, but Jameson now argues with Billy. The ref is busy breaking those two up as Colten runs in, Boulder pulls Bronson to safety! Colten tumbles up and out and to the floor! Austin and Bowens check on Colten but Bronson SMACKS Colten off the apron! Bronson puts Colten in, covers, ONE!! Bronson drags Colten up and FLAPJACKS him off buckles!

Bronson goes up the ropes to HIP DROP Colten! Tag to Jameson, he HIP DROPS Colten! Boulder tags in, he stomps around and the fans fire up. Boulder brings Colten up, to suplex high and hard! Boulder then says bang bang to mock BBSG. Boulder shakes those hips, tags Jameson, and they double whip Colten, only for Colten to BLAST Bronson! Colten DUMPS Boulder, ELBOWS Jameson, hot tag to White! White may have sniped that one, but he CHOPS Jameson down! And he gets Bronson by his hair, and CHOPS! White CHOPS Jameson, fires off JABS then CHOPS! JAB, CHOP, repeat! CHOP, CHOP, and CHOP!

Bronson runs in but White sends him into Jameson! White then CHOPS Bronson! White whips Bronson but Bronson reverses. Bronson runs up but White dumps him out hard! Jameson runs up but into an URENAGE Cover, Boulder runs in, but White moves! The SPLASH hits Jameson! Boulder freaks out, and White kicks low! Billy gets in, FAMOUSER! The fans fire up as that sends Boulder tumbling! White CHOPS Bronson, Colten CLOBBERS him out of the ring! White shrugs and gets Jameson for the BLADERUNNER!! Cover, BBSG wins!

Winners: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn, by pinfall

It was a rocky start but a smooth finish as the hybrid trio works out! Will this super group be untouchable all the way to the top of the mountain?

 

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

 

Bryan Keith VS Malakai Black!

The Bounty Hunter wants gold, but he’ll have to step into the shadows first. The House of Black has been nothing but brutal and sadistic, will Malakai add Keith to the body count?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Keith stares Malakai down, and both men hear the fans cheering. Malakai and Keith circle, tie up, and Keith wrenches and wristlocks. Malakai moves around, spins through and wrenches to snapmare. Malakai headlocks but Keith slips out to wrench and wristlock again. Malakai snapmares and chinlocks but Keith wrenches out again. Malakai breaks free, tripos Keith but Keith kicks him away. Malakai storms back up but Keith trips him to cover, ONE! The two stand off and the fans rally up. Malakai and Keith reset and circle again. They tie up, Malakai ROCKS Keith, then ROCKS him again!

Malakai whips, Keith reverses but things speed up. Keith BOOTS Malakai down! Fans fire up with Keith and he storms up on Malakai. Keith ROCKS and CHOPS on repeat!

Malakai wants Mark to show mercy, but here come Buddy & Brody! Mark dodges Buddy to SMACK Brody! And then a SMACK for Buddy! Mark ducks the heel kick to UPPERCUT! Mark gets the kendo stick back, takes aim again, but then thinks of something else. He has a STEEL SPIKE! The same kind Julia Hart stabbed Mark with just a couple weeks ago! Mark aims at Malakai, but Malakai dodges! The spike stabs the buckle pad!

BLACK MASS, and then DANTE’S INFERNO!! The House of Black took Mark’s revenge and turned it around on him. Will Mark learn that no matter what, The House Always Wins?

 

Serena Deeb VS Lady Frost!

The Professor of Professional Wrestling is looking for her path to a championship, and you do that by winning. Deeb had studied up for Kiera Hogan, but cards are subject to change. Will Deeb still pass the pop quiz? Or will she be iced out of the title chase already?

The bell rings and the two circle. Deeb and Frost tie up, and Deeb wrenches to a wristlock. Frost trips Deeb, knuckle lock covers, ONE as Deeb gets a shoulder up. Frost pushes the arm down, ONE as Deeb gets the other arm up. Frost tries again, ONE as Deeb bridges! They stand, go around, and Deeb straitjackets Frost. Frost powers out to straitjacket Deeb in return. Deeb wriggles and wiggles through the straitjacket to put it back on Frost. Deeb brings Frost to her knees, then digs her knees into Frost! Frost endures as she’s bent back, so Deeb tosses her away! The fans cheer and Deeb flexes.

Deeb and Frost tie up, Frost headlocks, but Deeb wrenches out to arm-drag Frost away. Frost goes to a corner, Deeb runs up but Frost BOOTS her! Frost cartwheels over then basement dropkicks Deeb down! Frost whips, Deeb reverses but Frost goes up and over and handsprings away! Fans fire up but Deeb runs Frost over! Deeb says this is HER ring. Things speed up, Deeb ducks ‘n’ dodges and arm-drags into a takedown, spinning toehold into a TRAILER HITCH! Frost endures, Deeb pulls on the foot, but Frost has the ROPEBREAK! Deeb lets go quick and fans cheer her own as Collision goes picture in picture.

Deeb waits on Frost while she’s on the apron. Frost shakes out the legs, steps back in, and then Deeb runs up! Frost puts Deeb in a corner, CHOPS her, but Deeb CHOPS back! Deeb CHOPS but Frost pushes Frost to CHOP again! Frost stomps a mudhole into Deeb, then brings her around for a FISHERMAN SUPLEX! Deeb flounders to ropes but Frost hobbles over. Deeb kicks low, UPPERCUTS and Frost staggers back. Deeb UPPERCUTS again, swings but Frost dodges the chop to stomp and UPPERCUT! Frost snapmares Deeb and clamps on a headlock. Deeb endures and fights around. Frost facelocks, Deeb still fights up, but Frost throws Deeb down! Cover, TWO!

Deeb goes to ropes but Frost storms over. Frost bumps Deeb off buckles, goes corner to corner and RAMS into Deeb! Then she handsprings and RAMS in again! Frost lets off to then bring Deeb up and CHOP! Deeb sputters while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Frost has Deeb in another clinch. Deeb powers up and out, drops down then blocks a kick to DRAGON SCREW! Frost writhes and Deeb pounds the mat. The fans rally, Deeb winds up and CLOBBERS Frost! And CLOBBERS her! Deeb JABS, JABS and JABS! Deeb winds up, the fans fire up, but Frost kicks low!

Deeb staggers, Frost runs up, cartwheel and spin, CHILLA DRILLA! Cover, TWO!! Deeb survives and Frost is furious! Frost aims, spins, but Deeb ducks the roundhouse to ripcord and ELBOW! Then wrench, hammerlock, and PEPSI TWIST! The fans fire up and Deeb gets the leg! HALF CRAB! Frost endures, but taps! Deeb wins!

Winner: Serena Deeb, by submission

The Professor didn’t even need the full Serenity Lock, she’s just that good. Deeb gets the mic and says, “The Women’s Division in AEW is heating up, baby!” Fans cheer that! “Now, I put the locker room on notice when I came back, but I’ll remind you again. Any woman that wants to step up in this ring, any woman that wants to join this Women’s Division, the Professor will be here waiting in Deeb’s Dojo, waiting for the best, because I’m here to elevate this Women’s Division!” The fans cheer that, too! Deeb says, “When The Professor wrestles, the lights don’t turn out. When The Professor wrestles, the picture doesn’t go black ‘n’ white.

“But when The Professor is in the ring, I wrestle! And Serena Deeb is back to claim the division, and I’m here to put the wrestling back in All Elite Wrestling!” The fans fire up for that one! Deeb has called out the champions, will she get to take a title away from one of those champions?

 

Eddie Kingston makes his way to the ring!

Springfield cheers on The Mad King as he joins commentary, just as Bryan said he would. But he isn’t putting on the headset just yet, he must want to wait on the legend. Will Eddie’s hero slay the American Dragon? Or will Bryan beat Blue Thunder like he did Blue Justice?

Bryan Danielson VS Jun Akiyama!

The bell rings and Bryan stares Jun down as the fans rally up. They both hear the fans mixing “YES! YES! YES!” and “HAI! HAI! HAI!” The two circle, feel things out, and Jun backs Bryan down.

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall

Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

Trios Triple Threat: Private Party & Matt Sydal VS Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Bryan Keith, Komander & Penta El Zero Miedo!

With all the trios titles belonging to the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, many others are trying their hands at the trios game. Will Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen and the Zen Assassin open their third eyes? Will Dante, Darius & The Sight to See be flying high? Or will the Bounty Hunter, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion and The Man with No Fear steal the spotlight from them all?

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle. They tie up, go around, and Sydal headlocks for a takeover. Action stands up but Sydal hits another takeover. Sydal then snapmares but Action handsprings through! Fans cheer and the two go again.

The fans rally as Zay dodges Keith, fires “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” and then ROCKS Keith. Zay whips, Keith reverses, but Zay goes up and Quen tags in. Zay RANAS Keith into Quen’s GAMANGIRI! Then Quen springboards to SPLASH Keith! Cover, TWO! Keith is still in this and he tags out to Penta! The fans fire up as Penta somersaults in, but Quen shows he can somersault, too. The fans rally for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tells Quen to listen, CERO! MIEDO! Queen says okay, but “What do we want? SHOTS!” Quen shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove. The fans fire up, and Penta makes the pass to Alex Abrahantes!

Penta says again, CERO! MIEDO! Another pie face, but Dante tags in off Quen. Dante shoves Penta but then Komander tags in. Quen jumps on Dante, he and Penta mug him, and then everyone else rushes in! It’s a nine man melee and the ref reprimands them all! Things spill out, Dante and Komander stay in. Dante breaks free to JUMP KNEE, then runs, but Komander dodges! Dante mule kicks, whips, but Komander reverses to hook Dante up, COBRA TWIST, into a tilt-o-whirl RANA! Fans fire up as Dante flounders to a corner. Komander runs corner to corner but Dante dodges!

Komander tags Penta before he runs in, but Dante jumps up and over! Penta runs in to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Dante staggers up, into a SUPERKICK! Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

Komander feeds Dante to Keith’s fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, Zay breaks it! The fans rally, Quen tags in off Keith, and Quen stomps away on Action as Rampage goes picture in picture!

Quen stomps and stomps but the ref counts. Quen lets off to drag Action up and bump him off buckles. Quen runs up to RAM Action, then tags in Zay. Private Party keeps Action trapped, Zay ENZIGIRIS Action down! Zay stomps now, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Zay lets off to kick-step, then he tags Sydal. They stomp Action, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Sydal lets off to rally the fans, then he drags Action up. Action throws body shots but Sydal CLUBS him down. Sydal stands Action up again to back suplex, but Action lands out, only for Sydal to HEEL KICK! Tag to Quen and Quen slingshot SENTONS!

Rampage returns to single picture as Quen stomps Action back to the corner. Tag to Zay, Quen snap suplexes Action down for Zay to slingshot SENTON! Zay smirks and then drags Action up. Zay puts Action in the corner, CHOPS, then tags Quen. Private Party double whip Action to ropes, but Action ducks ‘n’ handsprings to DOUBLE BACK ELBOW! The fans fire up as Action and Private Party are all down. Action crawls, Quen grabs at a foot but hot tag to Dante! Dante rallies on Quen, whips, but Quen reveres.

Dante springboards to CROSSBODY! Cover, Keith breaks it! Darius runs up to CHOP Keith, but Keith ROCKS Darius! Keith runs, but Darius follows to HOTSHOT BULLDOG! And then GAMANGIRI! Darius steps in, but into a KNEE! Keith runs up to SHOTGUN Darius out of the ring! Keith pursues, but Action is there to go after Keith. Action fires forearms, Dante turns around to see Zay. Zay dodges Dante to then FLY out onto Keith, Darius & Action! Dante whips Sydal up and out but Komander tags in. Komander BOOTS Sydal, Dante BLASTS Penta, and Komander gets Sydal in an APRON ROMERO SPECIAL!

Dante builds speed and he FLIES over those two to wipe out Keith and his own teammates! Komander lets Sydal go, Sydal mule kicks Komander down! Sydal goes up the corner, to APRON METEORA! But Penta’s right there! APRON FEAR FACTOR!! Penta rises but Zay springboards, triangle jump STUNNER! Quen gets in, Zay gives him the boost to go up and up and SUPER SWANTON onto everyone else!! The fans are thunderous and Zay takes a bow. Zay then waits as Quen puts Penta in. Zay puts Penta up top, GAMANGIRIS, and then GIN ‘N’ JUICE DESTROYER!!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & Bryan Keith, by pinfall

A huge win for this eccentric trio, will they be hunting down The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass? Or will they try for the Bullet Club Gold’s gold instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

After taking a week off for the NBA All-Star Game, Saturday nights are once again good for a fight. Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb each return to in-ring action, will these two rivals keep pace in the chase for gold? And we just saw Bryan Keith win big in the trios match, but he’ll jump right back into singles action against Malakai Black! Will the Bounty Hunter get another big win in his hunt for opportunity? Or will the Dark Father prove the House Always Wins?

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya and Harley and isn’t sure how much they’ve been watching Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker, but those two are off on their path of romance. Saraya DGAF about Soho x Parker!! She has things going on, too! That traitor isn’t getting under her skin even a little bit! Harley calms Saraya down, and they do breathing exercises. Why’s Harley flicking her tongue when she does that…? But Saraya wants to talk business. Y’know how her family is big famous wrestling royalty in the UK? Well, see, she has a special announcement. Her brother, “Zodiac” Zak Knight, has just become All Elite!!

Saraya has her brother walk into frame, and yeah, he’s scary, right? Zak could’ve been yours, Ruby! Saraya was gonna set Ruby up with him, “the most eligible bachelor in the Norwich area!” And Ruby messed that up just to be with that greasy, slimy, whatever Parker is! Harley says yeah! Just look at Zak! Isn’t he hot? He’s so hot! The whole Knight family is hot! Saraya is a bit taken aback by that, and she sprays water at Harley. Harley just embraces it so that doesn’t make for a good deterrent anymore… Saraya says it’s okay, Harley’s about to be fixed. But Saraya also promises, “Things are about to get really spicy around here.”

The Outcasts head out, and Zak’s scowl scares Renee a bit. Will Ruby & Parker regret making their romance public?

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson used, or rather abused, their power as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW to have an AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution. However, they are also very upset at the continued disrespect. Will that really stop after they take their frustrations out on these young indie guys?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Lyons. Nick doesn’t even bother taking off his trilby (or is it a fedora?) as he circles with Lyons. Nick calls for a knuckle lock but then kicks low and CLUBS away! The fans boo but Nick soaks it up. Nick whips Lyons, Lyons reverses but Matt tags in. Nick hurdles then whips Lyons, Lyons ducks Nick but Matt CLOBBERS him! Matt takes off his suit jacket to then drags Lyons up. Matt TOSSES Lyons to the corner, Lyons tags in Cappuccino! The fans fire up for Cappuccino as he circles with Matt. Matt mockingly applauds, also calls for a knuckle lock, but also kicks low!

Matt CLUBS away on Cappuccino, just like Nick, but then Matt cools off. Matt brings Cappuccino up to throw hands, whips him to ropes, but fakes the superkick to DDT instead! Fans boo but Matt drags Cappuccino up. Matt whips Cappuccino to the corner, he and Nick coordinate to LARIAT GAMANGIRI COMBO! Tag to Nick, he BLASTS Lyons, and then Matt whips Nick in so he can go up and over and PENALTY KICK Lyons! Matt stomps Cappuccino, stands him up, then HOTSHOTS him into Nick’s DISCUS LARIAT! Tag back to Matt and he drags Cappuccino up. The fans rally as hard as they can, but Cappuccino gets the MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Well, turns out they call that the “Tony Khan Driver” now, seems they don’t care to be associated with the Wrestling Observer anymore. But then they feel disrespected when the ref hesitates to raise their hands? Nick gets the mic to tell Paul Turner that when he raises their hand, what name did he use? Did he really just call him “Nick?” That is disrespectful! Next time, it’s a fine! And Schiavone, please, join them in the ring. Fans boo and Schiavone isn’t sure what to do. But they are EVPs, he doesn’t really have a choice… Schiavone joins the Bucks, and Nick promises they won’t harm him.

Last week, Schiavone was in the ring with them and Nick swears, he tripped on his own shoe, knocked into Schiavone and that is why Schiavone fell over. Nick wants to make it clear, and he apologizes for that. Matt says to show how sorry they are, and how much they love him, they got him a $25 Amazon gift card. They are sorry, Schiavone, but that isn’t the only thing they’re sorry about. See, they’re also sorry that, uh… they can’t get the bloodstains left by Darby Allin & Sting out of their $5,000 suits. Schiavone says yes, that is a problem… Will they rescind the $1,000 fine on them by any chance?

Sorry, no, they can’t do that. But there are a couple things that they won’t be sorry about. The first thing is beating the hell out of Darby for all the trash he talked about them publicly. The second thing, and this is one Schiavone will really like, is them taking Sting and pinning him to the mat, saying goodbye to one of the most legendary careers in all of pro-wrestling! Fans boo but Matt continues to tell “Stinger,” call them Father Time. Because just like time, the Bucks are undefeated. And just like time, the Bucks are coming for Sting! “Now everybody, let’s have a great show! There’s a great line-up on the way!

“Tony’s over there at the desk, he’s one of the best play by play guys in the business! C’mon, everybody! AEW chant on three? One, two, three! A E DUB! A E DUB! Alright, let’s go~!” Matt fist bumps Schiavone, then leaves with Nick. The farce continues, but will there be nothing even Darby & Sting can do about it? Or will the Icon still find a way to retire on top?

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Rampage returns and he welcomes a young man who has had a busy year. He’s a brand new father but fighting the Don Callis Family, it’s Sammy Guevara! Tulsa cheers as The Spanish God heads to the ring, back on his feet after the ambush by Will Hobbs. Schiavone shakes hands with Sammy, and Schiavone congratulates Sammy on last week’s win against Jeff Hardy. But now, to the comments Callis had for Sammy just last Wednesday Night Dynamite. The insults he hurled at Sammy, Callis clearly has it out for him.

Sammy says it is a mix of emotions. Last week, he got in the ring with a childhood hero in Jeff Hardy. But on the other hand, he’s pissed off because Hobbs put him through a table! Sammy tells Hobbs that Sammy always knew Hobbs had endless potential, and superstardom written all over him. But he can do that all on his own! Hobbs doesn’t need Callis sucking the life out of Hobbs’ career! Hobbs is a star all on his own, but it’s too late now for him to figure that out because he’s pissed Sammy off. So enough talk! Get your ass out here so they can fight! The Don Callis Family music plays, but it’s only Callis walking out here.

Callis has a mic to taunt Sammy, “Look, everybody! It’s Mr. Mom! You’re back at work after nursing the child. I mean, the only thing you’ve done of any note in the last six months is reproduce, and you shouldn’t be proud of that. Dogs do it. Even these people can do it!” Fans boo but Callis says Sammy used to be a great athlete. He used to be a guy Callis wanted in the Family. But now, Sammy has become like so many others: a weak, pathetic little cuck! Sammy doesn’t get what Callis is doing repeating himself, but then HOBBS gets in from the crowd side! Sammy dodges, SUPERKICKS, and Hobbs bails out!

Sammy eggs Hobbs on, then builds speed, to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Hobbs! Sammy says bang bang, and he gets a chair! Sammy winds up to SMACK Hobbs on the back! Hobbs hobbles but gets in the ring. Sammy pursues, aims again, and he JAMS Hobbs low! Then SMACKS him on the back! Sammy throws off the jacket, waits on Hobbs to turn around, but Hobbs fights off the torture rack to LARIAT Sammy inside out!! Callis smiles as he tells Hobbs to end this! SPINEBUSTER! And then another SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs is gonna do Sammy like he did Jericho! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!

Hobbs stands over Sammy and Callis applauds. The Powerhouse has all but pulverized Sammy, and Callis even gets his shots in! Will the Don Callis Family make sure there’s nothing left of Sammy to go home to his wife and daughter by the end of this?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“I had that match. I had it won, if it wasn’t for that bald headed, sad, poor excuse of a man, I would’ve had it and I deserved it. I had that win and I deserved it, on my own.” Julia Hart calms her down and says it’s okay. They will have their comeuppance. And while seeking their revenge, they will dig three graves: one for Willow, for Kris, and for Stokely. But who does Skye want first? Whoever will step up. Whoever has the balls enough to step up and fight her! Will the Chicago Skye continue to darken until she blots out the light?

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

Toni Storm’s superfan still wants to prove herself to her hero, but that really depends on if Storm is even watching this. Will Mariah finally have Storm’s approval? Or will the Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they go along the ropes. They end up in a corner, get out of a corner, and Mariah pulls hair. The ref counts, Mariah lets off and shoves Anna, but Anna doesn’t budge! Anna smirks as she and Mariah rest and tie up. Anna waistlocks, shoves, but Mariah slides to sweep the legs! Mariah runs but Anna dodges the dropkick! Anna runs to BLOCKBUSTER! Anna then ROCKS Mariah, whips her, but Mariah reverses to ROCK Anna! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah brings Anna around to bump off buckles, and CHOP again!

Mariah eggs Anna on so Anna CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then digs her boot in as Rampage goes picture in picture!

The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, and she brings Anna into ropes to hook her up. The ref counts as Mariah chinlocks Anna against ropes, but she lets off at 4. Mariah kisses Anna on the cheek, then runs to DROPKICK Anna in the back! Anna falls out of the ropes and Mariah soaks up the heat. Mariah stands Anna up, runs, and SHOTGUNS her down! Anna flounders out of the ring and Mariah takes a bow. Mariah then goes out to stalk Anna, and she brings Anna around the way. Mariah puts Anna against barriers to CHOP her! And SPANK her! Mariah laughs while Anna hobbles away. Mariah pursues to then CHOP again!

Anna is stinging while Mariah dusts herself off. Mariah hears the count but she whips Anna into the barriers first! Mariah then leaves Anna behind and “apologizes” to the ref. Mariah goes back out after Anna, soaks up the heat, and vogues for the camera. But Anna throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS back! Mariah pushes Anna into the ring, takes her time posing before going back in, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Anna whips Mariah to a corner. Mariah slips out to the apron, avoids Anna’s haymaker, and ROUNDHOUSES in return! Anna staggers, Mariah shouts and climbs up, but Anna ROCKS her! Anna then gets space, runs up, and HEEL KICKS! Anna then wrenches the arms, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Anna grows frustrated but she drags Mariah up and hooks the arms. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

Anna hops on as a backpack, but Mariah RAMS her into buckles! Mariah is free, and she puts Anna up top. Mariah DOUBLE CHOPS, then gets some space. Mariah runs up to STRATUSPHERE!

Mariah flails, reaches out, but she BITES Anna’s arm!!

The ref reprimands but Mariah is free all the same! Fireman’s carry, MAYDAY DRIVER!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

One thing is for sure, Mariah is just as looney as her role model! Will she follow in Storm’s footsteps to become a champion in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is with the lovey-dovey couple, how’d the date go? Ruby says she felt it went really well. Parker is relieved, he didn’t wanna say it first and be wrong. It was incredible, everything he hoped it’d be, he had a great time. Renee points out that in the opposite direction, Saraya is becoming unraveled. If they didn’t hear her comments earlier, she had some rather choice words. And apparently, she was going to hook Ruby up with her brother? Ruby says that’s weird and Renee agrees. Plus, Zak is more like a poor man’s Tom Hardy, big pass. Parker isn’t sure being Norwich’s Most Eligible Bachelor is a bad of honor, either. And honestly, “wrestling royalty?” That’s a stretch.

Ruby tells Saraya that she said she doesn’t care, that Ruby doesn’t get under her skin, but here’s the reality: for the last year, Saraya told Ruby that Ruby needed Saraya, when it was really the other way around. Saraya is sad and unhappy without Ruby. And say all you want about Ruby, but talk bad on Parker and that’s when they have problems. Ruby said she needed space, and in that space, she found something real. And Saraya may be sick of hearing it, of seeing it, but hey, why not invite everyone along? Bring the cameras, bring the crew, and they’ll shove this right down Saraya’s throat!

Parker’s pretty fired up. He says Ruby’s hot when she’s mad. Ruby thanks him for the compliment, and the two head out to get some drinks. Will they make Saraya so sick of love she’ll never dare speak their names again?

 

Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Jake Hager w/ Hornsby!

The Undisputed Kingdom were bullying Orange Cassidy, and apparently the Big Hurt didn’t like seeing that. Will Oklahoma’s own break the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will Roddy be too strong even for the All-American Sooner?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hager and Hornsby. Roddy and Hager circle, tie up, and Hager powers Roddy to a corner. Roddy slips free, shoves Hager, and fans boo. The two reset, they circle again, and Roddy gets around to waistlock. Roddy then turns Hager around to CHOP, but Hager doesn’t budge! Fans fire up and Roddy is a bit scared, so Roddy bails out. The Kingdom pep talk Roddy while the ring count climbs. Roddy hurries in, dodges Hager, then things speed up. Roddy leaps but Hager catches him! Hager puts Roddy in a corner, runs up but into a BOOT! Roddy CHOPS, but Hager catches it?!

Fans fire up as Hager TOSSES Roddy, then CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! Hager whips corner to corner hard, runs up, but Rodd bails out again! Hager snarls, goes out after Roddy, and stalks him around the way. Matt Menard’s on commentary, he says watch out for “these bozos,” Taven & Bennett. Hager stares them down as he walks past, then fires off on Roddy! Roddy tumbles, Hager puts him in the ring, but Roddy KICKS Hager in the ropes! Roddy CLUBS away on Hager, then tells Tulsa to shut up! Roddy runs, but into a BOOT! Hager storms up, puts Roddy in a corner, and then TOSSES him across the ring!

The fans fire up as Hager LARIATS Roddy down! Cover, TWO! Roddy stays in this but Hager digs his knees into Roddy! Roddy flails and reaches out but Hager traps the arms. The ref counts as that knee gets a bit high on the chest and into the neck area. Hager lets off, but he puts Roddy in a corner to fire off body shots! Roddy staggers away as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Hornsby cheers Hager on as he clotheslines Roddy in the corner! Hager ROCKS Roddy while talking trash to The Kingdom, then he hauls Roddy up top. Hager climbs, brings Roddy up, but Roddy clubs at Hager’s leg. Roddy throws body shots, slips underneath, and then kicks the legs out! Hager ends up stuck in the ropes, and Roddy runs to STRONG KNEE him in the back! Hager falls and Roddy stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Roddy lets off to flex, but only The Kingdom cheers him on. Roddy stands on Hager in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, but then he springboard stomps Hager down!

Roddy gets the legs and has Hager in ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager sputters, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down by dropping knees, then he digs a knee into Hager’s back. Roddy has the chinlock but Hager endures and fights up. The fans rally, Hager throws body shots, and then Hager runs, but into a DROPKICK! Roddy hurries to cover, TWO! Roddy drags Hager from ropes, stomps him, then paces around while The Kingdom talks trash on Hager. Roddy glares at Hornsby but Hornsby dares him to do something! Roddy goes back to Hager to rain down fists! Roddy then lets off to put Hager in a corner.

Taven seems to be talking trash on Hornsby, probably calling him a Melvin like does everyone. Roddy stands Hager up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he scoops to BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down with another chinlock, again digging in a knee. Hager endures, fights up, and Rampage returns to single picture. Hager throws body shots and is free, but Roddy CLUBS, KNEES and runs, but into a lift! Roddy sunset flips, Hager stays up and he drags Roddy up to TOSS to a corner! Roddy BOOTS, ENZIGIRIS and then OLYMPIC SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Roddy grows frustrated as Hager stays in this.

Hornsby smacks the steel steps to rally the fans, and now Bennett glares at him. And then Taven comes in from the other side, Hornsby realizes he’s in a 2v1 situation here. Hornsby wants them to calm down, but then he pulls out a SUPER CONFETTI POPPER! It goes off and Hornsby says take that! The Kingdom still storms up on him, but here comes Orange Cassidy! The AEW International Champion is returning the favor to Hager by helping out his buddy. The Kingdom says fine, bring it then! Cassidy says hold on, he has THE HAT! He throws the purple bucket hat into Hager, and Hager loves that hat!

Cassidy then dodges Taven, shoves him into Bennett, and down they go! Cassidy rains down fists, and Hager powers up with the hat!! Roddy runs up but Hager LARIATS! And LARIATS! And OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! The fans are thunderous as Hager says, “I like this hat!!” Then Hager runs corner to corner, goes up and up, and hits the HAGER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Hager snarls! But Taven sends Cassidy into railing! The 2v1 has gotten the better of Cassidy, and Roddy JAWBREAKERS Hager! Hager staggers, Roddy storms up, OLYMP- NO, Hager slips free to GUT RWENCH BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Roddy survives, but Hager has the ANKLE LOCK!! Roddy flails, rolls over, and he kicks from below! Hager still holds on, ANKLE LOCK! Roddy flails, reaches out, but Taven throws Cassidy into the ring! The ref is distracted by that, Taven & Bennett get on the apron but Hager CLOBBERS them both! Roddy STRONG KNEES!! Hager falls, Roddy covers, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

Despite having back-up and the power-up, Hager still couldn’t beat the numbers game! Roddy is rolling towards Revolution, will he be taking the International title away from Cassidy?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage that was again booked to have story. The Bucks of course won their match, but they did what I was hoping they’d do in changing up their style. They purposefully didn’t use superkicks, and then they are apparently changing up the names of their finishers as if to say Heel Bucks don’t care about their YouTube show or Dave Meltzer. Their post match promo was good, too, but it didn’t really add too much more to the heat they’ve already got. And pretty good promos out of this Ruby VS Saraya story. I thought Ruby VS Saraya was just going to be the thing, but now it feels like they might give us a Mixed Tag of Ruby & Parker VS Saraya & Zak.

Really good Trios Triple Threat to open, and I love that it was Keith, Komander & Penta winning rather than taking a loss to the established-ish trios. The feud of Private Party and Top Flight really needs to be settled by just those teams anyway. Pretty good promo from Sammy Guevara to call out the Don Callis Family, but of course it turned into Hobbs beating Sammy up. Good promo from Skye and Julia, I really thought AEW would’ve figured out a contender to the TBS Championship by now, but maybe that’ll happen very quickly in the next week. Really good match from Mariah May and Anna Jay, and a really good win for Mariah. But you can bet Storm didn’t pay attention to this at all, just like the other times.

And very good main event from Hager VS Roddy, with The Kingdom of course overbooking this. The bit with Hornsby was fun, and Cassidy showing up was also a logical move. I like that Hager’s hat is now the same as Cassidy putting hands in his pockets, but of course Hager lost out. Roddy needs momentum going into the title match so he had to win this one, and he probably just waits it out while Cassidy gets worn down. But at this point, it’ll probably still take a lot of cheating for Roddy to win the International title and bring it into The Undisputed Kingdom.

My Score: 8.7/10
