PLAY BY PLAY

The Undisputed Era heads to the ring!

The “tortured artist,” Dexter Lumis, abducted Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish, but he let them go free in the end. Adam Cole still reigns as THE NXT Champion and has shut The Velveteen Dream out. The era continues, and will continue as everyone thought it would. NO one in their right mind believed Dream was going to beat Cole for the title. And that’s not a knock. Dream proved he is one of the very best. The problem is, he’s not Adam Cole Baybay. No one is! And as long as this title is on Cole, Dream cannot challenge for it. SO that begs the question: What is next for Adam Cole? The answer is simple: “It doesn’t freakin’ matter.” Cole has run roughshod on the brand as the MOST DOMINANT champion in history! No one has held the NXT Championship the way he has, no one in NXT or even all of WWE can beat him for this title!

So now that Dream is in the rear view, the Era shifts focus to Lumis. Lumis is crazy, psychotic, and a freak that always gets in their business. Is he obsessed with Cole? Is he obsessed with the title? Either way, what he did to Roddy and Bobby is despicable! Fish says “that creep” is obsessed with all of them. He shoved Fish and Strong into a car trunk! Strong hates being stuffed in car trunks! Has it happened before? Well uh… Anyway, Fish is convinced Lumis is scared of them, too! They got out of there and that goof was nowhere to be found. Strong points to Lumis in the crowd! But when the others turn around, he’s gone!? Cole wants Strong to take a breath. Cole tells Lumis, wherever he is, listen very closely. He’s there again!! But then he’s gone again.

Guys, just stop! Pump the brakes! Adam Cole speaking right now is not Adam Cole the greatest NXT Champion. This is Adam Cole, the man who has his best friends’ back. Cole says Strong and Fish are two of the greatest men he’s ever known. You mess with one of them, you mess with all of them. Cole and Lumis have a match, and everyone and their mom knows Cole went through war and is not 100%. But that’s just a day in the life of a champion. Cole and Lumis will fight, and Cole will beat Lumis. He will not only beat Lumis, Cole will send Lumis back to the drawing board where he belongs. And that is Undisputed. Strong is still a bit worried but both Cole and Fish calm him down as they make their exit. Will Cole learn Strong’s fears are justified when he faces Lumis head on? But wait! Lumis is in the crowd and staring at them! Strong runs away, but is there no escaping Lumis’ gaze?

 

The Undisputed Era talks backstage.

Cole and Fish calm Strong again. He takes deep breaths and Cole says that Strong being this anxious makes Cole anxious. Cole needs Strong to stay calm. But here comes Keith Lee and Mia Yim. “Sup, champ.” Keith Lee has been wondering what’s next for himself, and has an idea looking at the NXT Championship. Strong gets defensive but Cole tells him that now isn’t the time. The Era heads out and Cole tells Keith, “In your dreams, big man!” Will Keith’s dreams become a reality alongside Strong’s nightmares of Lumis?

 

Keith Lee & Mia Yim VS Johnny Gargano & Candice LeRae!

#Yimitless may have lost last week’s Mixed Tag Match, but they prevented #TheJohnnyGarganoWay from taking over at TakeOver. With things far from over, who wins to take the lead in the war for NXT?

The teams sort out but the couples argue with each other. The ref tries to keep the peace but Mia gets at Gargano and Candice gets at Keith? Keith carefully picks up little Poison Pixie, but Gargano blindsides him! Candice goes after Mia and it’s a brawl both ways! Candice and Gargano have the edge but Keith and Mia each turn it around. Mia throws hands on Candice while Keith CHOPS Gargano! But that’s his bad hand again. Mia and Keith run into boots, the Garganos leap, but their double huricanranas are blocked with strength! Mr. & Mrs. Wrestling reach out for each other, but Mia and Keith keep them apart, to hit a SUPER COLLIDER! Kith LARIATS Gargano, Mia clobbers Candice!

Mia keeps on Candice at the ropes as the crowd rallies up. The bell finally rings and Mia dodges Candice’s clothesline to fire off forearms! Mia tosses Candice to a corner while Gargano clubs Gargano down on the outside. Mia pulls hair to SLAP Candice, then whips her to the ropes. Gargano saves Candice but Keith keeps them close. Mia builds speed to DIVE, but the Garganos get clear! Keith catches the Head Baddie and holds her close. They smile at each other, and are still ready to elbow Johnny and Candice away! Keith trophy lifts Johnny and Mia scoops Candice. They double SNAKE EYES the Garganos off the apron! #Yimitless is standing tall as NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and Candice has Mia down with a straitjacket stretch. Mia endures as the crowd rallies up, but Candice digs the knee in deeper. Mia works her way up and she arm-drags Candice off, but Candice clobbers her back down! Candice throws forearms and CHOPS and has Mia in the Gargano corner. She fires off hands all over but the ref counts. Candice lets up at 4 and Johnny talks trash. Mia dodges, Candice stops short of running into Johnny, and Candice quickly stops Mia from getting to Keith. But Candice eats SOLE FOOD! Both women are down and the crowd rallies up as they crawl. Hot tags to Keith and Gargano! Keith runs and runs Johnny over! Keith has Johnny in the corner for a splash, then a GRIZZLY MAGNUM!

Gargano flounders all the way around but Keith is on him again. Keith brings Gargano up to TOSS him back the other way! Keith keeps Gargano away from Candice and brings him up for a scoop. Candice reaches out and makes the tag! Candice goes after Keith but gets added to the scoop! Keith carries both Garganos around, but Candice claws his eyes! Johnny gets loose, give Candice a push start, but Keith blocks the tornado DDT! Keith powers Candice back up but Gargano enziguris! Candice hits the DDT! Mia returns to shotgun dropkick Candice down! And then rallies with clotheslines, a BOOT, and a dropkick! Mia CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS Candice, bu Candice pushes back. Candice swings, into a DRAGON SUPLEX! Bridging cover, but Gargano breaks it up!

The ref reprimands Johnny but Mia fires off strikes on Gargano! This is technically against the rules, but Mia suplexes. Candice saves Johnny but gets a forearm for it. Mia ROUNDHOUSES Johnny and GERMAN SUPLEXES Candice! And then GERMANS Johnny! Mia drags Candice up, but Candice spins around to SOLE FOOD back! LIONSAULT!! Cover, TWO!! Mia survives and Candice can’t believe it! Candice tags to Johnny and he goes right after Keith on the apron. Keith wobbles and Johnny runs, but Mia dumps him out! Candice goes after Mia but Mia throws forearms. Mia has Candice between the ropes and she kicks away on her! Mia drags Candice back up and around, but Candice resists the dragon suplex!

Keith runs in and POUNCES Johnny into Candice and Mia! Mia goes down to the ground and Keith realizes what happened! He checks on Mia but Johnny SUPERKICKS him down! Johnny slingshots, and hits the #OneFinalBeat DDT, but Keith lands on Candice!! Did Johnny and Keith just crush Candice?! Keith tries to sort out what happened and he checks on Candice. He holds her up, but Gargano rolls Keith up!! The Garganos win!!

Winners: Johnny Gargano & Candice LeRae, by pinfall

#TJGW wins, but does Johnny not understand what happened to his own wife?! If this is what #TheJohnnyGarganoWay is, will Candice start to reconsider?

 

NXT shares the exclusive post TakeOver interview with Damian Priest.

The Archer of Infamy took aim at the Prince but just missed the mark. However, he didn’t miss the steel steps when he fell off the apron. Does Priest feel he should’ve approached things different? Hell no. We all know Priest wanted this match because Finn Balor is one of the best. There are no excuses here. But this match wasn’t about a win or a loss, but about the next step in Priest’s name living on. Priest accomplished that, and he will definitely #LiveForever. What does Priest mean by that?

 

Backstage interview with Cameron Grimes.

The Technical Savage is still riding high because he’s having a rematch with Finn Balor, who he already has a win over. Cameron Grimes has already beaten Balor, but how confident is he this week? Does no one know his full name? It’s Cameron Confident Grimes! Do you think he’s going to lose? All because last time, he had Priest’s help? No, because last Grimes checked, he’s looking great. Grimes isn’t sure why William Regal booked this match, other than Grimes going up 2-0. It’s so nice, he’ll just do it twice! Look at these eyes. There’s one thing you don’t see in the eyes of Grimes, and that’s fear.

Priest walks over and Grimes says hey. What’s going on? They were just talking about how good Priest did at TakeOver. Priest was so close to beating Balor. So close, really. Priest DECKS Grimes, and then tells him to continue those thoughts. Will Grimes learn not to run his mouth so much? Or can he back up all those words when he faces The Prince again?

 

The world celebrates with Io Shirai!

Fans from all over, but especially the Full Sail Faithful, were watching TakeOver and the NXT Women’s Championship Triple Threat. The Evil Genius dethroned the Queen and denied the Nightmare, and both Shinsuke Nakamura and Asuka sends their own messages of congratulations! Shirai vows to take the title to new heights, because this is her division. Who will be the first to challenge the #DescentIntoDarkness?

 

Indus Sher w/ Malcolm Bivens VS Mikey Delbrey & Mike Reed!

Rinku & Saurav want to dominate the NXT Tag Team Division on behalf of Bivens Enterprises, but it is Breezango getting first crack at Imperium. Will these tigers of war make light of the… Grand Marshall of the Spandex Parade… and the #HotShot?

Teams sort out and Delbrey starts against Saurav, the taller of the two behemoths. And right at the bell, Saurav BOOTS Delbrey down! Saurav looms over Delbrey and brings him up to throw at the corner! Delbrey writhes from hitting the buckles, and before Reed can react, Saurav BOOTS him off the apron! Reed crashes into barriers while Saurav drags Delbrey over. Tag to Rinku and he runs corner to corner to SPLASH Delbrey! Then he runs side to side for another! Tag to Saurav, and Delbrey is fed to a scoop. Indus Sher combines, FLYING ELBOW SIDEWALK SLAM!! Cover, Indus Sher wins!

Winners: Indus Sher, by pinfall

Imperium may be efficient and Breezango may be fashionable, but these two are proficient in destroying their targets! Will it even matter who has the NXT Tag Team Championships when Rinku & Saurav come for them?

 

What is the status for Balor VS Grimes II?

Because Priest hit him so hard in the jaw, Grimes will not be able to compete tonight. At least, Grimes thinks so anyway. In a talk with GM William Regal, Drake Younger explains the situation. Grimes is convinced he has a broken jaw. Regal says to get Grimes on the line, and we’ll get to the bottom of this. Will the Prince have to wait for his chance at payback? Or did Priest just do Grimes a favor with that forearm shot?

NXT returns and finds Grimes talking it up with some female superstars. Grimes tries to brush Drake off and he says he’s totally fine. But Regal is on the line, so… Grimes plays up being hurt but he isn’t even holding the right side. Regal is pretty sure Grimes was talking real easy to the ladies. Go get ready for your match! Grimes reluctantly obeys and then gets upset at Drake for being a “stooge.” He tells the girls to get gone, there’s no going downtown tonight. Grimes is upset that he still has to put up or shut up, but will Balor make sure he does them both?

 

NXT takes a look at Breezango.

Fandango and Tyler Breeze admit, they dressed up as a lot of different things. Fighter pilots straight out of Top Gun! But they both insist they’re Maverick and the other is Goose. Then they were construction workers building stuff, and then they were doctors saving lives. Fans seem to love it, because fans love to be entertained. It’s why they were the Fashion Police in the first place. They like making people laugh, but realize they got too caught up in it. They handed out fashion violations as punchlines. It’s not that Fandango can’t get it done in the ring. His debut was at WrestleMania, and he WON! And you forget that this 32-year-old kid- Wait, he’s 32? Wow. Fandango thought he was 27. But the point being is that Breeze built NXT! TakeOver matches with Balor, Apollo Crews, THE Jushin Thunder Liger!

Prince Pretty and the Lord of the Dance admit they lost focus while on SmackDown. But back in NXT, the caliber of the tag division is so high, if you don’t kick it up a notch, you’re not going to be here long. It’s been fun, such as coming out as astronauts, but they need to leave the comedy at the ropes. They can bring it, and did so last week in that Triple Threat Tag. Fandango and Breeze won, have changed the game forever, and are the NEW #1 Contenders! They’re going up against Emporium. No, it’s Imperium. Fabio and Marsupial? Nevermind, it doesn’t matter. There are two guarantees: they will entertain the fans right up until that first bell, then bring it so hard that when that second bell rings, you’ll be looking at NEW NXT Tag Team Champions. That match happens next week! Will Breezango finally add gold to their wardrobe? Or will the mat stay forever sacred?

 

NXT shares the exclusive post TakeOver interview with Tommaso Ciampa.

After a rough loss to Karrion Kross, Ciampa lingered at the arena. What’s going through his mind right now? Ciampa doesn’t say a word as he goes to his car. Was Kross tougher than expected. Was Ciampa ready for him? Ciampa still refuses to say a word as he gets in the driver’s seat. Ciampa drives away, but is he coming back?

 

Backstage interview with Rhea Ripley.

The Nightmare lost the same as Charlotte Flair at TakeOver, but Rhea was the one to take the pinfall. How does she plan to bounce back for another chance? Rhea left it all in the ring, but Shirai saw an opportunity and took it. Rhea respects that. But what is Robert Stone doing walking over? He has business with Rhea. The Robert Stone Brand takes off his glasses but puts them back on to ask if Rhea can “feel it.” Can she feel this client-manager chemistry? Last Sunday, they were both losers. In 2020, Rhea has been a huge loser! But he asks she listen before getting physical. Stone is the biggest loser. Where was he going with that? Oh, right! Together, they could be a phoenix rising from the ashes! He’ll do everything for Rhea, and he means everything. Together, they can make the Robert Stone Brand bigger than ever!

Rhea says the chances of her joining his brand are 1 in a million. So there’s still a chance? That’s good enough for him! Rhea leaves, he follows, and wants a handshake. Instead, she hits him low, scoops him, and slams him into the trash! Will Stone move on to someone as desperate as he is with his sales pitch? Will he at least change his clothes and clean himself up?

 

Finn Balor VS Cameron Grimes!

The Carolina Caveman came away with a win on The Prince thanks to the Archer of Infamy’s assist. But now he’ll have to face facts and see if he can actually get it done 1v1. Will Grimes go 2-0 or be hit with reality instead?

The bell rings and Grimes circles with Balor. Grimes backs up to a corner and Balor has to wait. They circle again and Grimes again backs off to a corner. Balor swipes at Grimes but Grimes tells him to get back. The ref has Balor back up and then tells Grimes to come out of the corner. Grimes and Balor tie up, Balor wrenches to a hammerlock but Grimes headlocks back. Balor puts Grimes in a corner and wants a leg but Grimes pushes him away. Grimes then CHOPS low and clubs Balor down. Grimes says he’s not afraid and he throws European Uppercuts. Balor ends up on the ropes, Grimes runs, but into a back elbow! Balor trips Grimes up then boots him while he’s down! Grimes flounders to a corner but puts Balor in the corner with shoulders. Grimes backs off and grimaces as Balor goes to another corner.

Grimes goes after Balor with his shoulder but the ref backs him off. Balor knees low then snapmares and Penalty Kicks! Cover, TWO! Balor keeps on Grimes with a chinlock and he cranks on the neck. Grimes complains that Balor is pulling his hair but he’s clearly not. Balor shifts position but Grimes fights his way up. Grimes pushes Balor back to the corner and lets up, to CHOP! But Balor just CHOPS back! Balor CHOPS Grimes again, then whips him corner to corner for another CHOP! And then back the other way, CHOP! Balor whips again, CHOPS again and Grimes falls to the mat! Balor kicks but Grimes catches it for a SLAM! Grimes KNEES Balor while he’s down then goes to a corner. He stomps Balor down then drags him up for a CHOP! Balor falls back and gasps for air but Grimes stands on Balor’s hand. The ref counts and Grimes lets off, still bragging.

Grimes whips, Balor reverses, Grimes sunset flips but Balor slips out to basement dropkick! The crowd rallies as Grimes bails out of the ring. Balor pursues and CHOPS him against the barriers! Balor brings Grimes up to CHOP again! And then throw him into more railing! The count passes 6 so Balor puts Grimes in. Grimes rebounds to LARIAT Balor down! Both men are on the mat as the crowd duels. Grimes clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Balor down. The crowd rallies up, Balor fights to his feet, but Grimes wrangles him back down. Grimes grabs an arm to add onto the hold, but Balor fights his way back up. Balor elbows free and throws forearms. Grimes whips HARD and Balor bounces off buckles! Grimes might make this 2-0 as NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and Grimes has Balor in a chinbar and armlock. The crowd rallies up as Balor endures. Balor fights up, fights back, but Grimes whips to kitchen sink knee! Balor is down and gasping for air as Grimes brags he’s one step ahead. “You honestly thought that Cameron Grimes would be scared of you? You lost your mind!” Grimes runs into BOOTS! Balor rallies with forearms, a takedown and DOUBLE STOMP! Grimes staggers to his feet, to get the SLINGBLADE! Balor takes aim from the corner, to shotgun dropkick! Grimes is in the drop zone and Balor goes up top. The crowd gets rowdy as Balor aims, for the COUP DE- NO! Grimes moves, Oklahoma Rolls Balor up, TWO!! SUPER FOREARM! Balor flounders into a ROUNDHOUSE! Grimes dead lifts Balor to a lift, but Balor spins around to get the facelock! Grimes cradle counters, TWO!

Grimes wings, into the dragon sleeper, elbow drop DDT! The crowd is loud again as Balor looms over Grimes. Balor drags Grimes up but Grimes reverses to a GUNN SLINGER SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Balor survives and Grimes is losing his mind! Grimes talks to himself that this is his chance. Grimes runs but Balor gets under the Cave-In! Dragon sleeper, BLOODY SUNDAY!! Cover, TWO!?! Grimes survives but Balor heads to the corner. “This is Awesome!” as Balor aims again. COUP DE GRACE HITS! But Balor isn’t done, he drags Grimes up again for the 1 9 1 6!! Cover, Balor wins!

Winner: Finn Balor, by pinfall

The series is 1-1 now, but Balor’s one is stronger than Grimes’. Will Grimes even want the tiebreaker after this one?

But wait! Balor speaks to the camera about his plans. “I’ve won a lot of titles. But the North American Championship? Never. Keith Lee, when you’re done playing house, come see me.” The Prince has just called out the Limitless One! Will Balor look to add to his legacy?

 

Kacy Catanzaro VS Dakota Kai w/ Raquel Gonzalez!

#CobraKai and the Daughter of the Desperado were on the losing side alongside Candice LeRae on Sunday, but things keep moving forward. With a NEW NXT Women’s Champion, can Dakota get back on track against the American Ninja Warrior?

The bell rings and KC steps to Dakota. Dakota pie faces KC away, but KC shoves back! Dakota powers KC to a corner but the ref counts. Dakota lets up at 4 to pie face KC again. KC slips out and pie faces Dakota back to then sweep the legs and slingshot senton! Dakota bails out, trips KC up and spins her around. KC avoids the boot to then huricanrana Dakota down! KC puts Dakota back in and handspring ax kicks her down! Cover, TWO! Dakota gets to a corner but KC is right on her, only to get a buckle shot! Dakota stomps KC down then brings her up for more stomps. Dakota goes side to side, for the BOOT! She dumps KC down, covers, TWO! KC survives and Dakota grows frustrated.

Dakota throws KC to a corner then taunts her. Dakota runs in, KC goes up and sunset flips, TWO! KC almost had Dakota but she gets back to a corner. Dakota runs in, KC dodges her, and fires forearms over and over! She fires off on Dakota with fury but the ref backs her off. KC comes back with an A-List Lariat! But she walks into the scorpion kick! Dakota fireman’s carries for the GTK, Go To Kick! Cover, Dakota wins!

Winner: Dakota Kai, by pinfall

The Captain wins and all without Raquel interfering! But she’s not done with KC as she stomps away on her! Dakota puts KCY in the corner then lets Raquel have a turn. But the other KC, Kayden Carter, runs out to trip Dakota up! Raquel notices Kayden and chases her around the ring. Kayden BOOTS Dakota then spins around to use Dakota to tornado off Raquel. Raquel stops the DDT and grabs Kayden for the fisherman POWERBOMB! Dakota seethes but standing tall with Raquel does make her feel better. Will Dakota take the title from Shirai? Will Raquel make sure no one gets in her way?

 

NXT hears from Timothy Thatcher.

He addresses some prospects in the ring. He congratulates them on attending “orientation” for #ThatchAsThatchCan Wrestling School. This is his style of wrestling. Grab the liability waivers, have your lawyers look it over, and bring them back signed and notarized. But leave the tears at home. This training is not for the faint at heart. It will be brutal, barbaric and begin next week. Who will survive and graduate Thatcher’s school of hard locks?

 

El Hijo del Fantasma heads to the ring!

The second generation lucha libre icon is the NEW NXT Cruiserweight Champion after he won the round robin tournament finals! Drake Maverick gave him quite the fight, but the gold masked luchadors did play a factor. Fantasma takes up the mic and starts to speak, but Maverick interrupts! Maverick applauds Fantasma while heading down to the ring. Maverick grabs a mic of his own and says that he finally wants to congratulate Fantasma. Fantasma is a phenomenal competitor, and their match last week was incredible. Thank you for that match. And Maverick can’t help but hear people talk about his situation. Everyone should’ve been talking about Fantasma’s journey. The fact he made his WWE debut in this tournament, and then went all the way to win the title, Fantasma deserves it. The crowd agrees as they chant, “You Deserve It!”

Maverick says he’s had a lot on his mind, and can’t help but think what would happen if he had a clear head. So now that Maverick is a full-time, contracted member of NXT, he wanted to come out here, man to man, and say that he knows he can beat Fantasma. If Fantasma will accept a rematch, that is. Fantasma says if that’s what Maverick wants, he’ll get it. But before they can shake on it, the golden luchadors show up again! They flank the ring, but Fantasma turns around to stare at Maverick?! Maverick feels it, and turns around into a HEADBUTT! The luchadors mug Maverick 3v1! Fantasma has the luchadors back off, and reveal themselves. It’s RAUL MENDOZA AND JOAQUIN WILDE?! They weren’t kidnapped at all, but were cohorts in Fantasma’s long game! And Fantasma drags Maverick up for a PHANTOM DRIVER!

Mendoza and Wilde climb up on either side, and Fantasma takes off his own mask! “I am Santos Escobar! I am the NXT Cruiserweight Champion. And no one can touch me.” Wilde and Mendoza DOUBLE FROG SPLASH Maverick!! Fantasma sheds his persona to become his true self, and has shown his true colors! Will he, Mendoza and Wilde stand atop the Cruiserweight Division with iron fists?

 

The Undisputed Era finishes preparations backstage.

Adam Cole says, “Time to set an example.” Dexter Lumis is a freak, but this will be a message to anyone that wants to get in the Era’s way. Wait, Strong finds a piece of paper. It has a drawing on it! Lumis was here! He signed the paper! It’s a drawing of the Era down and out, all beat up and bloody! It’s a warning! Cole and Fish say it’s just a doodle. But the last time Lumis drew something, he put Strong and Fish in the trunk! Cole tells Strong to just calm down and breathe. Because right now, Cole is going to go out there and beat the crap out of Lumis. Fish says it’s what they do every time. Don’t forget they are the Undisputed Era. Strong puts the paper down, but then he sees Lumis staring at him through a door window! Lumis looks to paint a masterpiece of pain and torment, will he do it using Cole’s blood, sweat and tears?

 

NXT has a HUGE announcement for next week!

With Backlash holding a WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Triple Threat, the titles could be going to either Bliss-Cross, The IIconics, or staying with Sasha Banks & Bayley. But either way, the winners of that match will have little time to rest! NXT puts up Tegan Nox & Shotzi Blackheart as contenders to the tag titles! Who will the Shiniest Wizard & Wild Child “welcome back” to Full Sail next Wednesday?

 

Adam Cole w/ The Undisputed Era VS Dexter Lumis!

The longest reigning NXT Champion ever crossed off The Velveteen Dream from his list of contenders for good! But now, he might be the one crossed out if he isn’t careful. Will Lumis stare into Cole’s soul and expose that it is anything but Undisputed?

The bell rings and the crowd is loud for Lumis. Lumis stares at Cole and Cole rushes him. They tie up, Lumis powers Cole back to the corner, but lets up. Cole pie faces the “freak,” then dodges the counter attack to stomp and forearm away. Cole stomps the legs, backs off, but comes back to get tossed! Lumis fires off body shots of his own! Lumis stalks Cole along the ropes and whips him across the way to elbow him down! Cole bails out fast and regroups with Fish and Strong. Lumis pursues but Cole gets around the way. Cole goes back into the ring and Lumis follows, so Cole stomps him down. Cole warps on a chinlock but Lumis doesn’t even seem bothered. Lumis powers up and lifts Cole for a TOSS! Cole flounders onto ropes and Lumis runs to slide, slither and UPPERCUT!

Lumis just stares as Cole crawls away. Lumis slithers back in, blocks the boot, and DECKS Cole with a right! Cole gets to the apron but Lumis pursues. Lumis brings Cole up but Cole BOOTS back! Lumis falls and Strong taunts him from way far away. Cole catches his breath in the ring while NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and Cole grind Lumis down with a chinlock. The crowd rallies and Lumis fights his way up. Lumis punches free but swings into a BACKSTABBER! Cole covers, TWO! Cole argues with the ref about the count, but he goes back to Lumis to rain down right hands. He walks off in a huff but only the Era cheers. Lumis sits up and stares at Cole but Cole pie faces him. “You’re nothing more than a freak! You’re a weirdo!” Lumis just smiles?! Cole throws forearms on Lumis to try and wipe that smile away, then he hits a neckbreaker! Lumis sits up while the Era talks trash again. Cole drags Lumis to the ropes to choke him! The ref counts, Cole stops to stomp, then backs off at the ref’s count of 4.

Cole drags Lumis up for another neckbreaker! Fish says to finish it off but Lumis sits up again. Cole says Lumis is not in the same league, but Lumis just stares wide eyed. He smiles as Cole keeps punching him! Lumis eggs Cole on, then gets up to give haymakers back! Lumis rallies and uppercuts! Cole flounders, Lumis runs in to corner clothesline and bulldog! The crowd fires up and Lumis drags Cole up. Lumis suplexes, rebounds and finishes the suplex! Cover, TWO!! Cole survives but Lumis keeps on him. Lumis fireman’s carries but Cole fights out. Cole goes to superkick but is caught and turned around for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Lumis is still ice cold as he brings Cole back up. Cole breaks free to mule kick the legs out! He brings the knee pad down and runs, but Lumis catches Cole!

Cole fights off the Anaconda Vice and SUPERKICKS Lumis down! Cover, TWO!! Cole can’t believe it but Lumis lives! The crowd rallies behind Lumis but Cole brings him up. Cole takes aim, runs, but the Last Shot misses! Lumis SPINE BUSTERS Cole down, then rains down rights of his own! Lumis lets up and tightens his gloves. He heads after Cole but Cole sends him out of the ring. Cole tells Fish and Strong to go after Lumis, but he’s disappeared again! Lumis reappears around the other side, having slithered underneath the ring! Cole turns around into another SPINE BUSTER! And then a cover, TWO!! Lumis grows mildly frustrated but the crowd is fired up as ever. Lumis drags Cole to a drop zone and climbs up top. Fish and Strong shout for Cole to get up, but Lumis SWANTONS onto knees!

Cole hurries to the corner, hops up top, and leaps, but into the arm triangle!! Lumis can’t bring Cole down, Cole tries to use the corner, but that only helps Lumis with a swinging takedown! Fish distracts the ref on the apron and Cole gets to his feet, Strong enziguris Lumis off the hold! LAST SHOT!! Cover, Cole wins!!

Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall

The longest reigning NXT Champion shuts out another contender thanks to his best friends. They start to leave, but Cole wants to add insult to injury. He tells Lumis he will never be champion, and that he is a joke. But LUmis revives and gets the vice! Strong and Fish go after Lumis but Dream appears! Dream throws Strong into steel steps and ROCKS Fish! Dream throws Fish into Plexiglas! Lumis stalks Strong and Strong runs away! Cole flounders and grabs his title belt, but he finds he’s all alone. Cole smiles, because he is still champion.

But wait! The lights drop and… Scarlett appears! The heartthrob harbinger of doom walks to the ring as the crowd chant, “Fall and Pray!” Cole looks around for Kross but doesn’t see him anyway. Scarlett presents Cole with an hourglass, and turns it for him. Ticktock, Cole’s reign is on the clock. Is it only a matter of when, not if, it will finally end?


My Thoughts:

A great episode to follow TakeOver: In Your House! For one, I am very excited to hear next week is tag team championship night. Breezango had a good promo to finally give us motivation behind their serious in-ring style. This is a story that was surely meant to be set up by that match with the Singh Brothers months ago before all the pandemic panic, and they’re getting to give us that now against the perfect foils in Imperium. Then, off the heels of WWE Backstage talking about the Women’s Tag Division needing to be taken seriously, we’re getting a Women’s Tag Title match! Given Shotzi & Tegan are Faces, this is even more reason to say Bayley & Banks are retaining at Backlash. They’ll finally give us the promise of coming back to NXT to defend the titles, and it’ll be a great match.

Indus Sher had a great return to action, and it seems jobbers can go anywhere they like. Mike Reed was getting squashed for AEW Dark, now he got squashed for NXT live. Thatcher is apparently moving into a leadership role, giving us his version of Drew Gulak’s Catchpoint in Evolve wrestling. That might be an interesting angle for him going forward. #Yimitless VS #TJGW was great, especially the co-ed spots like Keith Lee squishing Candice! The Garganos win to apparently leave Keith and Mia behind for the moment. Keith teases wanting the top title but he’s got Finn Balor aiming for him and that is a twist I didn’t see coming. But that will be a great match one way or another, just like Balor VS Grimes was tonight. Grimes was hilarious throughout the night but obviously he was going to lose the rematch. He can bide his time and maybe come back around should Balor become champion.

Dakota wins and wants after the title, but it looks like she and Raquel will have a small program with Kacy and Kayden at the same time. I don’t see KC and KC winning but they’ll have a good showing. Rhea dumping Robert Stone in the trash was great. I’m pretty sure this means Stone has no choice but to go with Aliyah the next time she comes around. Fantasma turning tonight was executed perfectly, but the real twist was that Mendoza and Wilde were in on it from the beginning. Fantasma dropping his mask and becoming Escobar was also a great move, as it gives the impression that the Fantasma persona is still the Face but Escobar is the Heel.

Then we get a lot of great little moments between Lumis and the Undisputed Era. Cole VS Lumis was great and it makes a lot of sense for Dream to show up and help him out. I did not expect Kross to come after Cole, but with as big as they’ve already made Kross, where else was he going to go? I suppose this makes Kross the Face since Cole is still strongly Heel. No offense to Kross, but I hope he doesn’t become champion right away. It should be a trilogy of matches at least, like Cole and Gargano had. Maybe Dream and Lumis become Kross’ allies in a roundabout way to counteract Fish, Strong and eventually O’Reilly being around Cole. That’s quite the eccentric trio but I feel like that’s why it’d work, even for just a Six Man Tag match.

My Score: 9/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO!

Six Man Tag: The Bang Bang Gang VS London Lightning, Shaun Moore & Michael Allen Richard Clark!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns are here, and these #CollisionCowboys are looking to keep up their momentum as AEW heads for Wembley. Will the Unified World Trios Champions be more than ready to go All In?

The trios sort out and the fans rally for “JUICE! JUICE! JUICE!” as he starts against Moore. Juice gives Moore a free shot, so Moore headlocks him. Juice powers up and out, tags Colten, and then Colten tags Austin. Bang Bang Gang hit a body shot, KNEE LIFT, and LARIAT! Juice adds a SENTON, then Colten SPINNING SPLASHES!

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?

 

AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

Roddy shifts it into a CAMEL CLUTCH!

Collision returns and Roddy pushes Castle to a cover, TWO! Castle is still in this but Roddy tells him to stay down. Roddy tells fans to shut up, and he kicks Castle around. Castle goes to ropes, Roddy drags him up, and then CHOPS! Castle staggers, Roddy scuffs him, and then Roddy storms up. Castle blocks a kick to reel Roddy in for a BIG back suplex! The fans fire up as Castle roars! Castle rises, Roddy runs up, but Castle blocks a punch to DECK him! And DECK him again! And again! Roddy goes to a corner, Castle runs in to JUMP KNEE! And LARIAT! And JULIE NEWMAR BULLDOG! Cover, TWO!

Castle is annoyed but he CLUBS away on Roddy with elbows, then KNEES Roddy in the side. Castle waistlocks, but Roddy pries the hold open. Roddy ELBOWS Castle, swings, but into an EXPLODER SUPLEX! The fans fire up and Roddy rises. But Castle just hits him with another EXPLODER! And then Castle waistlocks, but Roddy grabs the corner! The ref counts, Castle lets go at 4, but then he JUMP KNEES again! The fans fire up and The Outrunners say one more! Castle goes corner to corner but Roddy dodges!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender tot he ROH World Championship)

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”

 

Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Ava. The two tie up, Nyla waistlocks but Ava fires elbows. Ava is free, she fires more shots, then winds up to ROCK Nyla!

Nyla fires up, reels Ava back in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Ring rust is not a thing with Nyla Rose, and she barely broke a sweat here. Will The Native Beast make ever women’s champion in AEW and ROH her prey?

 

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

Darius ROCKS Ogogo, fights off Lee, but Ogogo reels Darius in through the ropes!

The ref counts, Ogogo lets Darius go, and Lee KICKS Darius down! The fans boo but Ogogo drags Darius up. Ogogo wrenches, CLUBS Darius, and Shane likes what he sees as Ogogo wrenches again. Ogogo puts Darius in a corner while Collision goes picture in picture.

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots. Skye ROCKS Harley again, but Harley ducks ‘n’ dodge! DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both! The fans fire up and Cassidy puts Bennett in. Cassidy goes up top, Bennett gets under the jump. Bennett headlocks, Cassidy powers up and out, but Bennett runs him over.

And whips, to then kitchen sink knee! Bennett sputters, Taven runs in, but Kyle blocks the kick!

Taven apologizes and says he still doesn’t wanna fight. But then he pokes Kyle in the eyes! Taven says that is why he doesn’t wanna do this. But Cassidy runs in to tilt-o-whirl. Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett talks smack on Cassidy, goes to the ring, but Kyle catches him for a SLEEPER! Bennett JAWBREAKERS free, then waistlocks. Kyle switches, hops on, SLEEPER BACKPACK! Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS! Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

Bennett stays between Cassidy and Kyle, mocks the hands in pockets, then stomps Cassidy. Roddy is having fun now as Bennett whips Cassidy to ropes. Bennett ELBOWS Cassidy down, covers, TWO! Bennett clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Cassidy down. Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, then fires body shots. Bennett ROCKS Cassidy, tags Taven, and The Kingdom mugs Cassidy as Collision returns to single picture. But then Cassidy starts fighting back! The fans fire up as but Taven knees low. The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then whips him to ropes. POP-UP BAYONET! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

BEACH BREAK for Bennett! Cover, TWO!! Bennett survives and Roddy can’t take it! Roddy hurries to ringside but Cassidy tags Kyle. Cassidy and Kyle watch Bennett get up, but Roddy shouts at “KYYYLE~!”

Roddy tells Kyle he can’t do this to their friends! Kyle says Roddy needs to just back off. The ref tells Roddy to stop, but here’s Ishii!! Ishii YANKS Roddy down, he fires off hands! The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

The Savior of the Backbreaker is set for an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match tomorrow night on Collision against Dalton Castle. But in an occasion of turnabout is fair play, The Conglomeration is watching him from commentary! Will the presence of Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy & Mark Briscoe make Roddy better or worse than usual?

The bell rings and Kyle says that while he loves and appreciates Roddy, Taven & Bennett, they’re being more like the Undisputed Cling-dom! Meanwhile, big Ben Bishop stalks some smack on Roddy, and then pretends he can’t see him. Roddy says okay, be that way. They tie up, Cassidy points out just how tall Ben is, and big Ben shoves Roddy down! The fans fire up, Roddy comes right back, but Ben TOSSES him away! Roddy bails out, the fans fire up for Ben, and The Kingdom coaches Roddy up. Roddy runs in, dodges Ben, and kicks at the legs! Ben drops to size so Roddy and CHOP! CHOP! And CHOP!

Roddy kicks the legs, fires boxing elbows, then ELBOWS Ben before he runs and SICK KICKS! Then he hits an OLYMPIC SLAM! The fans fire up with Roddy and the Kingdom, then the STRONG KNEE knocks Ben down! Cover, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

The Conglomeration is in agreement, that was impressive work by Roddy, because Roddy is indeed that good. But Cassidy says it is time to go stare down with them. The Conglomeration stand on stage to stare down The Kingdom, but Roddy needs to focus on tomorrow night. Will Roddy punch his golden ticket to an ROH World Championship match? Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

The Virtuosa is served a glass of wine, and says we’ve never been formally introduced. We’ve all seen what she can do in the ring, but does anyone know what it means to be THE Virtuosa. “Wrestling isn’t just a sport or an art form, it’s both. And more set to a quickening pace than a staccato beat of bodies slamming, bones cracking, tendons tearing! All building towards a beautiful and violent crescendo.” Deonna likes what AEW has forced her to become. “Because here, actions have consequences.” And Deonna vows to burn the empire to the ground, to remake it in her own image. This is the Age of the Virtuosa.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Renee Paquette caught up with Chris Jericho, “Big Bill” Morrissey & Bryan Keith, and asks what the hell. Yes, she’s seen The Learning Tree do “a ton of horrible other things” throughout his career, but tonight with Samoa Joe crossed a line. What was he thinking? Jericho smiles, the leather belt gifted to him by Martha Hart still wrapped around his hand. He waves to the camera and says, “Hi, guys. And Renee, I don’t know why you’re so surprised. This is exactly what I’ve been saying for a long, long time. If you’ve listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. Look at The Redwood and Bad Apple.

“But if you don’t listen to The Learning Tree, bad things happen. Shibata had a chance, now his arm is hurt. Hook had a chance, we had to burn his face off with a fireball. And Samoa Joke, for years, I’ve been telling you to listen to The Learning Tree, you didn’t, we ran you through a wall, and now you’re in the hospital.” Bill is stifling a laugh this entire time. Jericho says if Joe needs something to help with his inflamed muscles he might have, try ginger and black pepper. It’s really good for you. See, Renee? Lots of lessons to be learned. And even more will be learned on Dynamite 250, with a special edition of TV Time with Chris Jericho. Thanks, guys~…!

Jericho leaves, and Bill says one of the biggest lessons that Jericho has taught them is that the more TV Time, the better. And they want as much TV Time as possible! Because The Learning Tree, The Bad Apple and The Redwood are always maximizing their minutes. She should try it some time. Keith says if you don’t respect Chris Jericho, they will MAKE you respect Chris Jericho. Will everyone in AEW learn the hard way that Jericho isn’t kidding around?

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

That could’ve been a win by knockout with that killer haymaker! But will Shane Taylor Promotions continue to rampage until they prove they prove they’re the elite of All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage, and while they shoved five matches onto this card again, they at least did their best to put story behind most of these. Roderick Strong was of course beating Ben Bishop, but they gave us a storyline plug by having The Conglomeration on commentary. And while Thunder Rosa was of course beating Rachael Ellering, they gave us story build with Deonna attacking them both. I feel like this will give us Deonna VS Ellering next, to stretch things out so that the true blowoff of Deonna VS Rosa isn’t until All In, probably in the All In Zero Hour. For that matter, that’s probably where Conglomeration VS Undisputed Kingdom 3v3 happens, too.

I’m a bit torn on the promo from Learning Tree Jericho and crew. The positive is that it was really good. I said for Dynamite that I like how the payoff is Jericho’s gone from condescending to sinister, and even Big Bill is getting into this crazy persona. The negative for me is that they kinda shoved this in here. I know we DO need to hear Jericho’s explanation, but if it was “after Dynamite,” then find a way to make it part of Dynamite. Or just leave it for Saturday Night Collision so that you aren’t already stuffing a one hour program full to the brim.

Great opening tag from House of Black VS Premier Athletes with Sterling & Woods of course getting involved, but great win for Malakai & Brody in that 4v2 situation. Still banking on them screwing over The Patriarchy during a Unified World Trios Championship match. The Six Man Tag was really good but not sure it was main event material compared to the Fatal 4 Way. Good stuff for the Six Man Tag, everyone got their shine, but that Fatal 4 Way was just incredible. Great win for Fenix to stay hot while all the titles have stories going into All In, but he could get a shot at like, Okada’s Continental Championship to give us a dream match moment before the PPV.

My Score: 8.8/10
