FTR VS The Lucha Brothers!

Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood still don’t have their truck back after The Butcher & The Blade stole it. Those two even give Pentagon and Fenix a ride to the ring in that truck! But truck aside, this dream match come true will be about tag team superiority! Will FTR #FindTheirRedemption for the Fyter Fest 8 Man loss in this 2v2 rematch? Or will they only get Cero Miedo?

Inside cradle, FTR wins!!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

FTR just used the luchador’s weakness to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat! Butcher and Blade are upset by that, will they hold the truck over FTR’s heads as revenge? Wait, coming up behind them, it’s the Young Bucks! DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! Matt and Nick Jackson take the keys and bring them over. But wait, Kenny Omega is here, too? Kenny looks apologetic from last week’s misunderstanding about beer. He and the Bucks go into the ring to give FTR their keys, and some brewskis! Cheers! But then FTR pour it out on Omega’s head?! Not only is that a waste of beer, that’s just mean. The Bucks hold Omega back but barely! Will this only fire up The Cleaner to take it out on Jurassic Express?

 

Chris Jericho is here!

Le Champion has The Inner Circle following him, with jugs of orange juice in hand as reminders of the victory over Orange Cassidy in last week’s Fyter Fest finale. Jericho grabs a mic and says, “Le Champion is here!” And last week, he had one of the best matches in AEW history against Orange Cassidy. Not only did he win, he won the ratings war, just like he does every single week! Jericho wants to show and explain to the “kids” how ratings work. Yes, you want the overall viewership, but the most important thing is the 18 to 49 demographic, aka The Demo. Jericho has never, ever been beaten in that demo! Jericho is the King of the Ratings! He is the Demo God!

The Inner Circle praises Jericho as he continues to praise himself in that match last week. One of the best matches in a long time, and everyone is saying the same thing. “We loved that match! We saw something in Orange Cassidy that we’ve never seen before, ever!” Cassidy looked like a star just being in the ring with Jericho, and Jericho said that’s true. But Jericho knows what the people want. he understands the concept of being a draw. Orange Cassidy wants a rematch. TNT wants a rematch. The advertisers in the demo want a rematch. Everyone watching right now wants a rematch! You want a rematch, Jericho VS Cassidy II, right? Well if that’s what you want, you AREN’T getting one!

Cassidy had his chance, he did good, but not good enough. Cassidy took Jericho to the limit. The crowd jeers with “You Scared?” Jericho isn’t scared of some little dweeb with a denim jacket! Jericho is the Demo God! And that is why there will never be a rematch! So Cassidy, congrats. Enjoy the fact that you got to stand in the ring with Le Champion. Now go back to hugging Best Friends, and remembering what it’s like to be a main eventer. A sip for Cassidy, and pour some out for Cassidy’s dead career. But wait, here comes Freshly Squeezed! Cassidy is entering from the crowd! The Sloth stares Jericho down from long range but the crowd cheers. Jericho tells them “Shut your mouth!”

Jericho gets that Cassidy wants to hear this in person. The crowd jeers, “You Scared~? You Scared~?” Jericho will tell Cassidy what he really feels. Cassidy can go, but he doesn’t have what it takes to be on Le Champion’s level. He’s lazy, has a bad attitude, and is an entitled sloth! Jericho will say it one more time: “There will never be a rematch.” So just take those sunglasses, fold them up, and shove them up your ass. Then get out of Jericho’s arena. The crowd boos but Jericho shouts, “Get the hell out of my arena, you piece of sh*t!” Cassidy gives a thumbs up, to make it a thumbs down! Jericho asks what Cassidy is really going to do, and down comes a MASSIVE amount of orange juice and orange pulp from the roof! Ortiz looks like he’s drowning and floundering in it!

Jericho is furious with Cassidy, but Hager holds him back. “This jacket costs $7000!!” Get up, Ortiz! Jericho needs a towel! Someone throws an Orange Cassidy beach towel to him! Will Jericho get revenge for the disrespect without giving Cassidy the rematch we all want?

 

Backstage interview with Jurassic Express.

Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus and Marko Stunt have a huge match-up with The Elite tonight, but what is so funny? Stunt says it’s the Inner Circle getting drenched in orange juice! That’s the funniest thing he’s seen! Luchasaurus admits, it’s funny. But after 65 million years, this dinosaur finally has a chance against The Elite, and there’s nothing funny about that. Is JB ready? Yeah. Does Stunt have his kick pads? No… Well whatever, let’s go! Will the Jurassic Express stay on track in 2020?

 

Chris Jericho angrily joins commentary.

“Look at me, Jim Ross!” His jacket is ruined! And then Stunt was laughing at him!? Just wait and see what happens to Cassidy, Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy “and that little puke” later! Jericho reeks of OJ, JR! Yes, clearly. Don’t laugh, Excalibur! NO, no replay! Replay happens from many angles. Not to mention the towel. Jericho is all sticky and angry. “This is not over between me and Orange Cassidy, I’ll tell you that. There will be a rematch!” So Jericho changes his mind! Has Cassidy just put himself in a sticky situation?

 

Six Man Tag: The Elite VS Jurassic Express!

Kenny Omega is also still a bit angry and sticky from that beer bath by FTR. Will he keep his cool and make this Elite reunion victorious? Or will Jungle Jack Perry, the wrestling dinosaur and Mr. Fun-Size get the biggest trios win they’ve had yet?

The trios sort out and Nick Jackson starts against Jungle Boy. They circle and tie up, Nick wrenches to a wristlock but JB handsprings to wrench back. Nick cartwheels and breaks free, and they knuckle lock. JB sweeps the leg but Nick avoids the cover to then go up and acrobatically arm-drag JB away! JB comes back to give it back! Nick sweeps legs, ONE, JB sweeps the legs, ONE! Nick back kicks hard! Nick runs, JB puts him on the ramp but Nick shoulders JB away. Nick slingshots but JB handstands out of the facebuster! JB shows off with the handspring but Nick has to nod respect. We check on Hangman watching backstage and pouring himself a drink as Nick tags out.

Omega and Luchasaurus are now legal, but Stunt tags in outta nowhere! Stunt wants to circle with the AAA Mega Champion and one half of the AEW World Tag Team Champions. The crowd fires up as Stunt and Omega tie up. Omega throws Stunt down fast, but Stunt gets up and beats his chest. They tie up again, Omega throws him down again! Stunt gets up, Omega pie faces! Stunt shoves back, Omega cools off and offers a handshake. Stunt isn’t so sure about this, and Omega leaves him hanging! Stunt SLAPS Omega and throws fast hands!

Matt brings JB up, reels him in, and puts on out as he lifts. Buckle bomb enziguri combo! Matt then hits Stunt and Luchasaurus to go corner to corner, CANNONBALL enziguri combo! Matt talks some smack to Luchasaurus before he brings JB up. Matt snapmares JB down, tags in Nick, Nick slingshot sentons onto JB! Tag to Omega and Omega drags JB up. JB hits back but Omega clubs him down then brings him around fore a fireman’s carry. “YOU! CAN’T! ESCAPE!” Rolling senton hits, moonsault hits knees! Both men are down as the crowd fires up!

Nick kicks Stunt off the apron and Matt trips up Luchasaurus! SUPERKICK for Luchasaurus! Omega drags JB up and around to whip, JB swings the lariat but Omega ducks and runs to LARIAT back!

Electric Chair, ONE WINGED ANGEL!! Cover, The Elite wins!

Winners: The Elite, by pinfall

The Cleaner puts an exclamation point of his own on that victory, but he does shake hands with the unconscious Stunt. To then rain down rights?! The Bucks stop Omega but Omega doesn’t understand what he did wrong. Jericho loves it! Omega checks on Matt and wants to check on Stunt but Jurassic Express keeps him away. Is there something happening in Omega’s mind no one can understand?

 

Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida.

The AEW Women’s World Champion is in a unique situation. Four out of the five top contenders are unable to compete for various reasons! Is Shida ready to give Nyla that rematch? Well yeah, always ready. But it doesn’t have to be her. The roster is a bit depleted right now, so anyone can challenge Shida. If you think you’re tough enough and have the passion, find Shida. She’s waiting. Will someone step up to this open challenge? Or will Nyla storm her way to the front of the line and get her rematch?

 

AEW hears from Jon Moxley.

“For the last several weeks, I’ve not been the best for yours truly, and I’ve been pissed off and bent out of shape for a great many things!” But tonight, Moxley gets to purge all that frustration, hit and get hit, feel the adrenaline, live on the edge of a lightning bolt, and defend his AEW World Championship! You can’t take anything for granted. Tonight they fight for the fallen. Friends, loved ones, heroes, the people we care about. Moxley has a hell of a challenger in The Machine, Brian Cage. Now according to #TechniqueByTaz, Mox won’t be able to hit Cage with the Paradigm Shift because Cage is just too big and strong. Well okay, Moxley won’t worry about that. Moxley will rip Cage’s biceps in two.

Taz remembers the recently repaired biceps that kept Cage on the shelf for months, right? Mox promises to rip it clean off the bone! “Enjoy the hospital.” Will the Maniac break the Machine in this long-awaited title match?

 

The Nightmare Sisters VS Kenzie Paige & MJ Jenkins!

Brandi Rhodes and Allie have been at odds in the past, but it seems bygones are bygones. This uneasy alliance is 3-0 and now make an official Dynamite debut! Allie wants the spotlight for the sake of her cutie, QT, but will she settle for sharing it? Or will this team fall apart before our eyes?

The teams sort out, Brandi starts against #TheRealMeanGirl. They tie up, Kenzie headlocks but Brandi powers out. Brandi follows and BOOTS Kenzie down! Brandi throws forearms, whips Kenzie to the corner then hits a back elbow. Tag to Allie, Brandi snapmare rolls Kenzie to SUPERKICK her down! Allie runs to sliding lariat! Allie takes a bow before she drags Kenzie up for knees. The crowed cheers as Allie runs, Brandi tags in and Allie knee lifts Kenzie for Brandi to SUPERKICK! Allie gets upset, she didn’t know that tag was coming. Brandi brings Kenzie up but Kenzie throws forearms back! Kenzie whips, Brandi ducks and dodges to SLING BLADE!

Tags to Allie and MJ, but Allie rallies on the younger wrestlers! Allie kicks low and references Dustin with “Not Today!” before she SLAPS MJ! Allie runs and bulldogs MJ down! Brandi intercepts Kenzie with a SPEAR! Allie drags MJ up, but MJ knees low and scoops. Allie slips out, dragon sleeper, blows a kiss for QT to the elbow drop DDT! Cover, Nightmare Sisters win!

Winners: The Nightmare Sisters, by pinfall

Fast and furious, Allie and Brandi make good on this dysfunctional alliance! Will these two rise up to the top of the AEW Women’s Division together?

 

Nyla Rose is here!

The Native Beast is back, and Dasha is in the ring to conduct this exclusive in-ring interview. We know from last week, the former champion, Nyla, announced she was hiring a manager. Are we learning who that is this week? Wow, after “rubbing salt in the wound” about her being a former champion that she’d give us privileged, sensitive information? Nyla is not telling any of us anything yet. Because the manager will speak for themselves. The manager of the Native Beast is… “The Cougar,” VICKIE GUERRERO! “Excuuuuse meee!!” Yes, THAT Vickie is here! She is officially part of AEW, but she is NOT going to tell us about the strategy she has planned for Nyla. But when they are ready to go after the women’s title, “it will be the perfect time.”

And now that it is official, Vickie has a message for the women’s locker room. “From this moment on, ladies, I am begging you to stop lying to yourselves about how great you are.” You must admit that you are not smart enough to cheat to win. And lastly, Nyla is going to steal every opportunity they have ever dreamed of! Vickie’s evil laugh returns, but will she be the key to Nyla returning to the top?

 

AEW has another big episode planned next week!

For starters, another AEW TNT Championship defense is coming! Who steps up to take on Cody Rhodes after seeing how vicious he was with Sonny Kiss? Hangman Page is in singles competition against The Dark Order’s Number 5, aka Alan Angels, and Brodie Lee will be by his side. Will the Cowboy be able to do some #CowboyShit with The Exalted One watching? AEW has a new signee in the Women’s Division as IVELISSE will debut against Diamante! Will the Baddest Bitch #Bow2None? MJF is back in action, will he keep that undefeated streak going? And while FTR and Lucha Brothers had their 2v2, it’s time for The Bucks and the mercs to do the same! Will Matt & Nick Jackson still be standing when they take on The Butcher & The Blade in FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE?

Plus, after the laughter had at Jericho’s expense, he and Big Hurt, Jake Hager, take on Jurassic Express’ Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus! Will Le Champion get another win to keep his status as #DemoGod?

 

AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley VS Brian Cage w/ Taz!

“Who can stop the Path of Cage?” The Machine is still FTW Champion after actually putting that title on the line as part of AEW Dark, and demands it be announced as such. Justin Roberts gives him that intro, but will Cage add an official AEW title to his resume? We find out after the break.

AEW returns and Taz has the mic. “So we are moments away from Brian Cage getting the opportunity that he earned. An opportunity at the AEW World Championship.” Moxley was chirping earlier some “propaganda bullsh*t” about the Machine not being 100%. Oh please. While Mox was quarantining with the wifey, Cage was wrestling on a regular schedule and training his ass off. So enough talk! Mox, come on down and bring that pretty AEW world title. Moxley makes his entrance from the stairs way behind the stands, sporting a Danny Havoc shirt to pay tribute to one of the fallen he spoke of. The second Moxley gets in the ring, Cage swings on him! Moxley hits back and the bell rings to put this on record!

Cage throws Moxley to a corner, Moxley dodges and throws fast hands back. Moxley whips, runs in but Cage clobbers him first! The crowd boos but Cage drags Moxley up to ram him into a corner! Cage rams Moxley with his shoulder, then throws point blank clotheslines! He reels Mox out to CLOBBER again! “Who better than Cage?!” The crowd boos but Moxley goes after the arm! Cage powers him off, scoops him for a few curls, then FALL AWAY SLAMS him! Cage stalks Moxley, brings him up and whips him to a corner. Cage runs corner to corner, BIG uppercut and an enziguri! Moxley holds ropes to avoid the suplex and then elbows back. Moxley BOOTS Cage, hops up and leaps to missile dropkick!

Moxley throws off the shirt and stalks Cage to the apron. Moxley has the arm in the ropes, to SNAP against those ropes! Cage writhes and Moxley goes after the arm more, throwing it on the mat. Moxley jams the arm and drags Cage up to wrench and shoulder breaker. Moxley snapmares, runs and Penalty Kicks! Cover, ONE, but Moxley goes for the armbar! Cage rolls to ground ‘n’ pound back! Cage lets up, drags Moxley backup, and SAIDO SUPLEXES! Cage drags Moxley around, brings him up, but Moxley blocks the suplex to wrench and hotshot the arm! Moxley POSTS Cage and Cage falls to the floor!

Taz checks on Cage but Cage gets up. Moxley takes aim, builds speed and DIVES! The tope rams Cage to the barriers! Moxley has a wristlock but Cage throws Moxley into barriers. Cage drags Moxley up and past barriers to throw him into the railing by the bleachers! Cage CHOPS Moxley, then brings him back around. Moxley throws forearms and CHOPS back, then puts the arm through the railing gap! The ref reprimands, but Moxley BOOTS the arm! Cage clutches that arm while Moxley rearranges some barriers. Moxley leans one against the apron and brings Cage over. Moxley wants to suplex but Cage blocks and turns it around. Moxley blocks and turns it around, to underhook! Cage switches out, to GERMAN SUPLEX Moxley onto the railing! Moxley is down as AEW goes picture in picture, #MOXLEYvsMACHINE.

Cage drags the dazed Moxley up and scoops him, to slam him back onto the railing! The railing is bent but Cage won’t let up on Moxley. Cage puts him in the ring, pushes the bent steel aside, and covers. TWO, but Cage keeps his cool. Cage drags Moxley up, throws forearms but Moxley ducks to get a sleeper hold! Moxley squeezes tight, Cage fades, but then he powers up to lift Mox as a backpack! Cage RAMS Moxley into buckles, then throws big haymakers! Moxley wobbles and Cage stands on his head at the ropes! The ref counts, Cage stops at 4, but Cage drags Moxley up to wrench to a back suplex! Cover, TWO!

Cage grows annoyed with Moxley and chokes him at the ropes! The ref counts, Cage lets up at 4 again but Taz argues with the ref. That keeps the ref from seeing Cage kick the ropes to jam Moxley’s throat! Cage stalks Moxley and whips him to a corner hard! Moxley drops to the mat, Cage is on him with a half camel clutch. Cage digs that knee into Mox’s back, but Moxley fights his way up. Cage knees him in the back, then torture rack lifts! Cage carries Moxley around as AEW returns to single picture. Moxley endures being bent and stretched like that but the crowd rallies up for him. Moxley fights out but Cage makes it a neckbreaker! Cover, TWO!

Cage keeps on Moxley with a full camel clutch this time. The crowd rallies again as Moxley endures. Moxley gets his arms free, fights his way up, and throws body shots! Moxley runs, but into Cage’s elbow! Cage sees Mox on the apron and knocks him off! Mox hits barriers and Cage catches his breath. Cage goes out to stalk Moxley, Moxley leans on a chair, and Moxley kicks Cage back! Mox brings Cage over, but Cage turns things around to snap suplex Moxley onto the chair! How much steel must Moxley’s back take? Cage drags Moxley up and into the ring and Taz fist bumps his Machine. Cage stalks Moxley while Taz shows off the bent chair as a trophy. But Moxley cradle counters, TWO!!

Moxley baits Cage into a corner and POSTS him! Roll up, TWO! Moxley ROCKS Cage with big forearms! Cage stays up, and spinning powerslams Mox! Then he MOONSAULTS from the corner, but he FLOPS! Moxley runs and KNEES Cage down! Cage staggers up, Moxley runs to knee Cage again! Cage wobbles so Moxley knees him again! But Cage LARIATS right back! Mox gets up!? And Mox LARIATS Cage back! Moxley grabs Cage, but Cage slips out to jump and knee! Cage spins, but Moxley spins him more, PARADIGM SHIFT!! He actually hit it! Cover, TWO!?! Cage survives the finisher Taz said Mox couldn’t hit! “This is Awesome!” but Taz is very worried for his Machine.

Moxley aims at Cage in a corner, runs in to corner clothesline and then hoist Cage up top. Moxley climbs to join Cage, but Cage resists the superplex. Moxley still gets the SUPERPLEX from the second rope! Cover, TWO, into the KIMURA! Cage endures, powers up, scoops Mox with one arm to BUCKLE BOMB him! Moxley flops to the apron but Cage climbs up. Cage brings Moxley up for a DEAD LIFT SUPERPLEX! Taz likes this and coaches Cage to cover. Cage doesn’t want that, he wants to end it! Cage reels Moxley in, suplexes, but Moxley slips out to roll up and roll again, ARMBAR! Cage resists with pure power!

Moxley kicks and stomps Cage’s head but Cage keeps his grip! Moxley pries at that grip, gets the fingers and bends them! He has the armbar! Taz shouts at Cage, Cage turns over but Moxley shifts position! It’s part Fujiwara, but Cage endures and moves, only for Moxley to get the other arm! He shifts to put THAT arm in the armbar! Cage endures all over again, Taz shouts at Moxley, but Cage turns over. Moxley makes it a mounted armbar and flips Taz off! Cage endures, Taz has a towel… Taz throws in the towel?!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by forfeit (still AEW World Champion)

Taz didn’t want Cage to be broken after coming back so soon. The FTW Champion brings his own belt up to CLOBBER Moxley! Cage rains down furious rights on Moxley, then both arms! The lights go out?! And when they come back up… DARBY ALLIN leaps from the top rope! SKATEBOARD ATTACK! The undead underdog wants his revenge for Double Or Nothing! Taz tries to get Cage to head out, not wanting another brutal fight so soon. Cage isn’t so easily convinced but referees and security being in his way is enough. Will Darby get that payback on Cage? What will it take for someone to take #BigPlatinum from Moxley?


My Thoughts:

Another incredible episode for an incredible three week streak! We got some intrigue right away with Cody wrestling a much more brutal match against Sonny Kiss. I suppose they’re trying to show Cody is feeling the pressure of this workhorse schedule already, but again it’s a matter of pacing with his storytelling. I would’ve made Cody get anxious and edgy like this a few weeks from now. He should ride a bit high but as we start building towards All Out, the pressure starts mounting so that Cody will be obsessed with returning to what is essentially the third anniversary of this brand’s inception. Tully’s interest in Cody’s match, as well as FTR’s, furthers the rumors (not intentional) that AEW will create their own take on The Four Horsemen with those three and Shawn Spears as the four. Not a bad idea, but we’ll have to wait and see.

FTR VS Lucha Brothers was incredible stuff, especially with Dax’s chest bleeding very early into the match. The Butcher and Blade being ringside of course cued The Bucks showing up to get back at them. I didn’t see Omega’s part coming, though I swear I spotted him at the end of the 8 Man Tag for Fyter Fest and he had the same cooler. Maybe that part got cut for time considerations and they managed to make up for it here. Either way, great stuff, especially with FTR hanging out with Hangman and Omega more or less snapping on Marko Stunt. That Six Man was incredible, definitely proof AEW can do a Trios Division, but what a twist if Omega was the one to turn Heel and therefore turn on Hangman and the others.

Hikaru Shida unofficially issuing an open challenge was an interesting move. Granted, it does seem there are reasons Nyla is the only contender standing, and yet she also wants to take her time getting back with the help of her new manager. I should have felt Vickie Guerrero becoming that manager, she is too good to pass up. The Nightmare Sisters have another win over random teams that are mostly jobbers. I think they are waiting for QT to return if there is going to be a betrayal by Allie, if that’s happening at all. The women’s division is also growing stronger with Diamante moving up from Dark and Ivelisse joining the roster! Those two were hanging out in the crowd so don’t be surprised if they become a duo, too. AEW Women’s Tag titles as part of year two?

I love everything with Orange Cassidy, Chris Jericho and that HUGE amount of orange juice dumped on him! Jericho is amazing at being dramatic, just saying stuff about Cassidy and Jurassic Express and so on. Jericho VS Cassidy II will be an incredible match, and I feel like Cassidy wins the rematch, because that’s half the reason to have one. Then the tiebreaker could even act as an unofficial contender’s match, depending on who is holding what. Cody defending his TNT Championship against either would make for a great All Out match.

Moxley VS Cage was a great main event, and while it felt a given that Moxley would win, I was surprised by Taz throwing in the towel. It was quite the surprise for Darby to show up, especially with full on Undertaker/Bray Wyatt lights off then on treatment. As I said for Dark, maybe Darby challenges for the FTW Championship since Cage and Taz are at least treating it as a title for AEW. I don’t think Darby wins that, but I’m still waiting for him and Moxley to further an alliance. Death Riders with Moxley, Darby and NJPW’s “Shooter” Shota Umino to give continuity to Moxley’s career between the two companies!

My Score: 9.4/10

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed.

Lexy Nair is with Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn. First off, congrats on the recent success of the newest video. Thank you, Lexy. And Bowens is facing Brian Cage in tonight’s main event, how- Daddy Ass has us stop there. Let’s talk about everyone going crazy, running wild. The Embassy turning on Swerve, The Elite abusing their authority. Billy isn’t sure if Lexy has watched older wrestling, but Billy has a thing about authority. So if they wanna get wild, if they wanna go nuts, that is right up their aisle!

Caster says that’s right! He also thanks Lexi for saying those nice things about his song. But that song was about him and Bowens going back to the Tag Division. If you read the lyrics, which are great lyrics, but none of those team decided to wrestle The Acclaimed. Perhaps they’re a little too afraid to wrestle the best team alive. So they took the first match they could find, and that turned out to be Bowens VS Brian Cage 1v1. Sure, Brian is The Machine, but there are a lot of machines that are now antiquated, and we know Brian doesn’t have AI in his brain. In fact, he can’t update his software! It’s about time Bowens takes Brian to the junkyard!

Bowens says that’s right! Platinum Max & Daddy Ass said it themselves, there is a lot of chaos and madness going on in AEW! Bowens tells Brian and his cronies that they decided to side with The Elite, well you’re looking at the foundation of AEW! The best tag team alive, the best homegrown stars, The Acclaimed! That train is gonna roll right through Brian tonight, courtesy of the Scissor King! Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! Say it again, EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed!! The Five Tool Player is fired up, but will he need all those tools to dismantle The Machine?

 

Rush VS Cody Chhun!

El Toro Blanco is back again, and this time he is looking to reach the top of AEW. Will he stampede through everyone put in his path until he is adored with AEW gold?

The bell rings, the fans rally up with “FOUR C! FOUR C!” Chhun runs up but Rush dodges! Chhun hits buckles, then Rush CLOBBERS him! Chhun sits in the corner checking his jaw, but Rush goes to the far side. “If you mess with the bull…” You get BULL’S HORNS!! Rush drags Chhun to a cover, Rush wins!

Winner: Rush, by pinfall

Rush stands tall, but he doesn’t even care to celebrate, because this was more an inevitability than a victory to him. But then he sees Chhun stirring, and Rush drags him out of the ring! Rush CHOPS Chhun right down! Then he whips Chhun hard into barriers! The ref reprimands but Rush THROWS Chhun around again! Rush fires down fists, the fans boo as Rush DECKS Chhun! Rush won’t stop, he finds his favorite bright green cord! Rush LASHES Chhun, even as more refs rush out here! Rush CHOKES Chhun with the cord!! The refs all shout for him to stop, and Rush does. But he wants everyone to remember: Nothing happens unless HE says so!!

Rush storms off, spits on Chhun, and then grabs a chair! The refs warn him, so Rush simply stands on the chair to soak up the heat. Will nothing and no one stop Rush from rampaging his way to the top?

 

Lexy Nair is outside the trainer’s room.

She notes that to close Collision, Lance Archer & The Righteous viciously attacked FTR after the match. Bryan Danielson walks out, Lexy asks for a medical update. Well, The Elite put a bounty on Team AEW’s heads, and it seems to have worked. FTR won’t make it to Dynamite next Wednesday. But the Elite also failed, because here’s the thing. The Elite wants to change the world? They don’t even show up on Saturdays! And the failure is that Bryan is still here! So this Wednesday, Bryan will be on Dynamite. The Elite can take whatever shot they want, but they better get it done the first time. Otherwise, they won’t like the consequences.

Bryan heads out, but are The EVPs going to make sure no one makes it to Double or Nothing to oppose them?

 

Deonna Purrazzo VS Robyn Renegade!

The Virtuosa is still seething over her many run-ins with Thunder Rosa, but it seems their rematch isn’t destined to happen just yet. Will Deonna one-up La Mera Mera by beating Robyn worse than Rosa did?

The bell rings, the two circle, and they knuckle lock. Deonna spins to wrangle Robyn, but Robyn rolls back. Robyn wrenches, wristlocks, but Deonna rolls, rolls and gets free. The fans cheer, Deonna smirks, but Robyn runs up. Robyn waistlocks, Deonna switches, but Robyn switches back. Deonna pries free to switch again, then she trips Robyn up. Deonna runs, Robyn stays low, then Robyn hits a rolling fireman’s carry takeover! Robyn runs up but Deonna ducks the kick to roll her up! TWO, and Robyn staggers up into an arm-drag! Deonna has the armlock, the fans cheer, but Robyn endures.

Robyn fights up, Deonna hits another takeover, and she traps the arm. Deonna makes it a cover, ONE as Robyn gets the shoulder up. Deonna knuckle locks, wrenches, then clamps onto the arm. Robyn fights up to whip free, then runs to sunset flip! Deonna stays up, then slaps the arms away to clamp on an ARMBAR! Robyn fights around, flails, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Deonna lets go at 4, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Deonna stalks Robyn, brings her around and whips, but Robyn holds ropes. Deonna ROCKS Robyn, Robyn still holds ropes! Deonna ROCKS Robyn again, whips, but Robyn reverses. Robyn ducks the forearm, and the backhand, then clinches for a HALF NELNSON FACEBUSTER! Robyn fires up, she sits Deonna up, and runs to SHOTGUN her down! Cover, TWO! Robyn is frustrated, but she drags Deonna back up and bumps her off buckles. Robyn CHOPS Deonna, smirks, and winds up to CHOP again! Robyn says one more time, then puts some stank on it. But Deonna dodges to CHOP back! Deonna whips corner to corner, but Robyn reverses.

Robyn runs in, but Deonna puts her on the apron! Robyn ROCKS Deonna first, steps in, but Deonna ARM CODE BREAKERS! Robyn writhes, Deonna storms over, and Deonna drags Robyn up. Deonna knuckle locks, wrenches, then top wristlocks to wrangle Robyn. Deonna traps the arm for a SNAP LOCK! Cover, TWO! Robyn clutches the arm but Deonna is on her again. Deonna pulls on the bad arm, then top wristlocks. Robyn endures as Deonna thrashes the arm, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Deonna wrenches Robyn’s arm. Robyn ROCKS Deonna, but Deonna wrenches again. Robyn fires off a flurry of forearms and the fans fire up! Deonna shoves Robyn but Robyn LARIATS on return! The fans fire up with Robyn, then she wrenches Deonna to reel her in, put her in ropes, and KNEE her! Robyn runs to then STOMP Deonna down! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives and Robyn is frustrated. The fans rally, Robyn drags Deonna up, then fireman’s carries. Deonna slips free, shoves, and BOOTS Robyn down! Deonna slashes her throat and vows to end this! The fans fire up as Deonna drags Robyn up.

Deonna Gotch hooks, but Robyn slips free! Robyn pump handles, but Deonna arm-drags free! Deonna BOOTS the lariat, ARMBAR DDT! FUJIWARA!! Robyn taps, Deonna wins!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by submission

Deonna didn’t even need Venus De Milo, but then she puts that on Robyn anyway!! The ref reprimands, the fans boo, but Deonna makes Robyn suffer in Rosa’s place! But wait, here comes Thunder Rosa!! La Mera Mera rushes the ring, but Deonna runs away! So when does the part about regretting to mess with a Jersey girl come in? Rosa checks Robyn, and Deonna slithers back in! Deonna CLOBBERS Rosa from behind! Oh so that’s the part about Jersey? Rosa gets up, though, and Deonna retreats again. Rosa runs Deonna down and grabs her by the hair! Rosa drags Deonna back to the ring to RAM her into the apron!

The fans fire up as Rosa tells Deonna to fight her now! Rosa puts Deonna in, Deonna rolls out of the ring and runs into the crowd! The fans boo as Deonna flees into the night. When and where will Deonna have to give Rosa this fight?

 

Scorpio Sky speaks.

“I have done things people dream about. I’ve made money, faced legends, won championship after championship after championship. And you might not wanna hear this, but that was easy. And that doesn’t mean I don’t relate. I understand a normal person put in my position would fail. Because since time began, when people wanted to see a star, they’d look up at the Sky. And all that does is put me in the perfect place to reach down and lift you all up here with me. So to all the fans around the world, I’m coming back. And I’m here for you.” But will this comeback finally be the time Scorpio Sky reaches the top of the mountain?

 

Backstage interview with Sonjay Dutt.

Lexy Nair says Sonjay asked for this time, what is on his mind? Sonjay says first off, he sure doesn’t need Lexy here so hit the bricks. Skedaddle, peace, see ya. Lexy sighs and leaves, and Sonjay says this is for Bryan Danielson. The Elite have put a price out on Bryan’s head, and Sonjay just got off the phone with them, they have worked out quite the deal. Bryan says he’ll be on Dynamite, and so is Sonjay. But no, Sonjay isn’t the one that’ll take him out once and for all. This Wednesday, it will be The American Dragon VS… The Indian Giant! Yeah, that’s right! The one in a billion, Satnam Singh!

And y’know what? Dragon meat is expensive, so hopefully he goes well with a little chicken masala. This Wednesday, it will be one hell of a cookout! Sonjay laughs to himself, but will Bryan be the one with the last laugh after taking on this giant roadblock?

 

PROGRAMMING NOTE for Rampage next week!

Yes, Rampage returns to Friday nights next week, BUT at a special time of 6:30 Eastern, 3:30 Pacific! Make sure your DVRs know so you don’t miss this special Double or Nothing weekend edition!

 

Brian Cage VS Anthony Bowens w/ The Acclaimed!

The Machine turned on Swerve and then got beat by Swerve, crossing him off the list of top contenders. But will he reboot and head for other title opportunities? Or will The Acclaimed prove they can get it done in any division?

As always, Platinum Max has a diss track! “I heard Brian Cage got captain plans. We leave you bleeding so hard, you got menstrual cramps! Damn you are ugly, lookin’ pathetic. You are so small, get off the Ozempic! When did Brian Cage stop lifting weights? Beat him so bad, whip his ass into shape! Run you outta town just like Daim, because in Portland, Everybody Loves The Acclaimed!” Bowens then says, “PORTLAAAAND~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does~! The fans are fired up, but will Cage get his stuff in in response?

The bell rings and the fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” Cage and Bowens circle, tie up, and Cage shoves Bowens away! Cage flexes, fans are torn, and Cage says to scissor that. Bowens has Cage hold on, and then Bowens flexes. The fans cheer for Bowens, and he does scissor that! Cage runs up, Bowens gets around, then CHOPS! And CHOPS! Cage TOSSES Bowens to a corner, takes a swing, but Bowens dodges! Bowens CHOPS and CHOPS, but Cage shoves Bowens away. Cage runs up, Bowens gets under and kicks low. Bowens whips, Cage reverses, but Bowens goes up and over. Bowens hurdles, headlocks, but Cage powers out.

Bowens hurdles, slips around the lariat and DDTS! Cover, ONE!! Cage is tougher than that but the fans fire up behind Bowens. Bowens gets Cage up but Cage SPINEBUSTERS him! Cage says no more scissors! Cage storms up to RAM into Bowens! And RAM in again! And then CHOP! The fans “WOO~!” while Cage stalks Bowens. Cage bumps Bowens off buckles, then says one more time! NOT! Cage trolls the fans, whips Bowens, then runs up to UPPERCUT! LARIAT! SAIDO! Cage asks who betta but the fans are torn. Cage storms over to Bowens, drags him up, and ROCKS him with a forearm. Cage CHOPS, ROCKS Bowens again, then CHOPS again.

The ref counts, Cage whips corner to corner, then runs up. Bowens dodges the splash, blocks the kick, CLUBS the knee then KNEE JAMMERS into a DRAGON SCREW! Cage writhes and flounders to the apron while Bowens catches his breath. Bowens storms up, brings Cage up, but Cage swings! Bowens ducks, feints, then kicks the legs out! Cage hits apron on the way down, and Bowens aims. Bowens slingshots but Cage moves, so Bowens just goes to the apron. But Cage blocks the Penalty Kick to bring Bowens down, POST BOMB!! Cage gloats, then leaves Bowens behind, while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Bowens falls over in a heap, Cage flexes, then Cage refreshes the ring count. Cage drags Bowens up but Bowens pushes him away. Cage BOOTS Bowens down, then brings him up for an APRON BACK SUPLEX!

Cage CHOKES Bowens again, the ref counts, and Cage lets off again. Cage drags Bowens up, scoops and uses him for bicep curls! Cage then TOSSES Bowens away! Cage swaggers around, flexes, and covers, TWO! Bowens KICKS Cage from below! And kicks him again! Cage KICKS Bowens, whips him to ropes, then CLOBBERS Bowens! Cage clamps onto Bowens with a chinlock and grinds him down! Bowens endures, Cage grinds him into the mat, but the fans rally up. Bowens fights up to his feet, throws body shots, but Cage KNEES him away. Cage wags his finger, gloats a bit more, then runs corner to corner to forearm smash!

Cage soaks up more cheers and jeers as Rampage returns to single picture. Cage run sin, but Bowens BOOTS him! And BOOTS again! Bowens goes up, leaps, but Cage catches him! Cage suplexes, but Bowens cradle counters! TWO!! Cage escapes but Bowens ducks the discus! Bowens hobbles but he still ROCKS Cage, throws more hands, but Cage SOBATS! KICKS! Cage runs, Bowens follows. Cage dodges, Bowens redirects and spins Cage for Rock, Paper, Scissors, SUPERKICK! The fans fire up with Bowens! Bowens mule kicks, front kicks, runs and FAMOUSERS! Cover, TWO!! Cage survives and Bowens can’t believe it!

The fans rally up and Bowens rises. Bowens waits on Cage, runs up to clinch, but Cage fires elbows! Cage waistlocks, full nelsons and SLAMS Bowens down! Cover, TWO! Cage is frustrated, but he wants Bowens to get up. Cage runs up, Bowens moves aside to KICK Cage in the ropes! Then DRAPING APRON DDT!! Both men are down but the fans fire up! Bowens rises, drags Cage up, and fireman’s carries! Cage fights that to POST Bowens! And ENZIGIRI! Bowens flops around the corner, Cage brings him up from inside! DEADLIFT SUPERPLEX!! Cover, TWO!!! Bowens is still in this and Cage is beside himself!

Cage starts up Terminator drums, the fans join in, and he drags Bowens up. Cage pump handles and lifts, but Bowens slips free of the driver! Bowens runs but Cage ducks the kick to roll Bowens up! Bowens rolls through, and he ducks the discus! The SOUTHPAW hits! Cage reels Bowens in, suplexes, DRILL- NO, Bowens slips free to ROLLING ELBOW! And SUPERKICK! Cage falls, Bowens runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Cage survives but the fans fire up! Bowens huffs and puffs and fires back up! Bowens waits on Cage, fireman’s carries, but the bad leg stops him! Cage shoves Bowens at the ref!

Cage runs up, Bowens sends him at the ref! Bowens waistlocks but Cage LOW BLOWS!! The fans boo but Cage reels Bowens in! DRILL CLAW!!! Cover, Cage wins!!

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

Bowens may be an excellent former Tag & Trios Champion, but sadly he isn’t at the level needed as a singles guy. Will The Acclaimed have to regroup and focus on going after The Elite? Will The Machine be granted golden opportunities by said Elite?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage to once again follow up Collision, but I’m relieved that next week is going to be a partial return to normal schedule. Because as great as the matches here were, they just felt thrown together to tangentially tell stories. For example, Kyle VS Lee was a great match but Kyle has beef with The House of Black but they didn’t want Kyle getting one over on Buddy or Brody before facing Malakai next Wednesday. Shane Taylor Promotions deserves a touch better than being fed to the bigger stories, but maybe they come around as a trio after Double or Nothing to face like Bang Bang Gang or something.

And even our main event was an example of this. Great promo from Acclaimed, great rap from Caster as usual, but also a good choice for Cage to still win out. Cage has done singles champ stuff, is going to be the singles champ guy in whatever the former Mogul Embassy becomes after this, or even just a singles guy all on his own. Rush of course squashes his opponent tonight but him going after Chhun after was a good touch. At the same time, I kinda wanted the ref to reverse the decision and disqualify Rush after the match, throwing him into a worse rage and beating up on Chhun more. And again, why no La Faccion Ingobernable? Donde esta Dralistico, Preston Vance y Jose?

Good match from Deonna VS Robyn but of course Deonna won. Rosa going after Deonna and Deonna running away was not what I was expecting, it’s rather disappointing, and why not just give us their rematch with escalated stipulations already? Deonna VS Rosa in a Last Woman Standing maybe? Iron Woman Match so that it goes right to half an hour? Something cool like that would really show Tony Khan finally wants to do more with the Women’s Division after promising it like two or three times already.

And very good promos from Bryan and Sonjay Dutt to set up Bryan VS Satnam. I would think Bryan wins, but there’s a good chance Team Triple J goes after him post match anyway. As I just said in the Collision article, Anarchy in the Arena being No Disqualifications of the highest level, we could actually get way more than just the eight men advertised as the roster starts choosing sides, a very Avengers Civil War/Endgame type situation.

My Score: 8.6/10

Will Ospreay VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Aerial Assassin gave Roderick Strong one last warning on Dynamite, but this is about paying back that knockout shot last week! Will “OSPREAY! OSPREAY!” be cashing receipts tonight? Or will it be Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?

But before things get going, here comes The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy, Taven & Bennett walk on out, clearly not leaving things at the face to face on Wednesday.

The #BillyGOAT gets away clean, will he be able to take The Kingdom down and bring the International Championship home to The Don Callis Family?

 

Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley says, “At Double or Nothing in Las Vegas, Konosuke Takeshita-san will try to score himself a shot at the IWGP (World Heavyweight) Championship. He’s been a hell of a blue chipper for quite some time. Now, he’s got a new attitude, some new representation. And he came after me. Me. Trying to put a big ol’ notch in that gun belt. Hey, I get it. I’ve done far worse. What’s my secret? What’s the secret of the BCC? When you stand where I stand in this sport, you get used to being a target. How do we survive? Guys like you, The Callis Family, you’re in it for the gold, you’re in it for the green and chasing fame and fortune, adulation, Instagram, all that.

“BCC, we don’t give a rat’s ass about any of that. We do this because this is who we are. This is our nature. We don’t hunt because we are hungry, we hunt because we are lions. We like it. We never, ever play for money. We play for blood.” Claudio Castagnoli adds that a lot of times, he’s the voice of reason here. Even when no one listens, it’s fine. Things just keep repeating and repeating and he doesn’t like standing here to talk to the camera, because it is the most awful thing to do. What matters is going out there and showing it week after week! And y’know how many people stand back here and tell you how good they are? How great they are?

They have passion! They practice their lines in the mirror! Then they come here, tell you how really, really good they are, and how it’s just been their dream all their lives. And it’s all fake! So fake because they don’t live it one day of their lives. It’s like The Emperor’s New Clothes. Only the BCC can see it. They see through the fake, through the facade. They see through it because while others try to make a name off BCC, that’s a big mistake. You are dealing with the real deal right here! Moxley likes it. Takeshita, you started this game. At Double or Nothing, the BCC finishes it. Will The Maniac tear down The Alpha and send a message to the rest?

 

BREAKING NEWS for AEW’s “Path to All In!”

Make sure you get your tickets starting in June so you can be part of this inaugural event!

 

AEW hears from Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey.

It was backstage after Dynamite that The Learning Tree, after getting patched up, told Hook, “Wow, I can tell that I touched a nerve there when you hit me with that microphone and made me bleed my own blood.” But Hook, Jericho isn’t mad. It tells him that Hook is learning what it takes to be a champion again. Hook was the “For The World” Champion, and will be again some day, but it’ll take some time. Hook is still learning. Jericho is glad Hook is in the #JerichoVortex and hit him hard enough to make him bleed. It really hurts, but y’know what? It also makes Jericho proud. Makes him proud to see Hook get a little more serious! This is serious business!

This is what The Learning Tree is here for! To make Hook a better person and a better wrestler, both inside the ring and out. Jericho will need stitches, and will gladly get them. Because it is proof that Hook is learning what The Learning Tree is teaching. So in a roundabout way, thank you, Hook. And good luck in the qualifiers. Wow, that really hurts. Really got him with that mic. Hook is “learning,” but will he be the one teaching Jericho a thing or two?

 

FTW Contender Series: Hook VS Johnny TV w/ Taya Valkyrie!

The Learning Tree is giving opportunities to those who are worthy, but it will still come down to who is the most deserving. Will the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil prove he’s the only one deserving? Or will Johnny #SendHook to the back of the line?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hook. The two circle, Johnny tests the waters with kicks. The two tie up, Hook headlocks, and Hook wrenches to a hammerlock then headlock. Hook hits a SAYANAGI, and Johnny staggers to his feet. The fans rally as the two circle again. They tie up, Johnny ROCKS Hook! Hook wrenches back to SAYANAGI again! Hook clamps on for a wristlock, but Johnny fights up. The fans duel, Johnny fights up and trips Hook up. Johnny runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO! Hook is tougher than that but Johnny rains down forearms and elbows! The fans duel more as Johnny keeps throwing down shots!

Hook wants an arm but Johnny slips around to cravat. Johnny cranks the neck, Hook endures and fights up. The fans rally and duel, Hook pries at the hold to then power Johnny into a SAIDO! Hook runs up to LARIAT! Johnny staggers back up, Hook clinches and throws knees! Hook TOSSES Johnny across the ring! Johnny gets up in a huff, kicks, but Hook catches him! LEG CAPTURE SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Hook and he storms around. Hook brings Johnny up but Johnny JAWBREAKERS! Johnny ROCKS Hook, Hook ROCKS Johnny! Hook fires more shots, but Johnny kicks low! Hook dodges the lariat, but almost runs into Taya!

Winner: Hook, by submission (advances to the Triple Threat)

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil is now moving on to Dynamite’s Triple Threat #1 Contender’s match! Will he make Jericho regret not just giving him the match?

As Hook heads out, Shibata makes his entrance! The Wrestler is also in this series, and he gives Hook a fist bump as they cross paths. Will Shibata join Hook in that Triple Threat? Or will Azucar make things sweet?

FTW Contender Series: Kastuyori Shibata VS Rocky Romero!

The bell rings, the two shake hands, and the fans cheer. Shibata and Rocky circle, the fans rally up, and the two feel things out.

Rocky wrenches out to a wristlock but Shibata spins and wrenches back. Rocky rolls but Shibata wrangles him! Shibata double wristlocks, but Rocky powers Shibata to ropes. Shibata still holds onto the wristlock as Rocky tries to whip. The fans rally, Rocky throws knees and powers out this time. Shibata stops himself to stomp Rocky on the back!

Shibata gets a leg, steps through, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~!” as Rocky endures. Shibata puts on pressure, but Rocky crawls for ropes! ROPEBREAK, and Shibata lets go quickly. Shibata stomps Rocky, CLUBS him, then CLUBS him again. Shibata runs, but Rocky catches him into an IRON OCTOPUS! The fans cheer while Shibata endures! Shibata fights up, pops free and throws Rocky down! And it’s back to the FIGURE FOUR! Rocky endures again while fans “WOO~!” Shibata puts on the pressure, Rocky pries at the main leg, but Shibata pulls on Rocky’s legs. They roll, roll, and end up in the ROPEBREAK!

The ref counts, the leglock is undone, and Shibata brings Rocky up to bump him off buckles. Shibata fires forearms, UPPERCUTS, then UPPERCUTS again. Shibata goes corner to corner, but into a BOOT! Rocky kicks again, Shibata bocks, so Rocky reel shim in for an UPPERCUT! Rocky goes up and jumps, TORNADO DDT! Both men are down and the fans fire up while Collision goes picture in picture.

Rocky stands and he stomps Shibata. Shibata sits up, Rocky KICKS him in the back. Rocky wrenches an arm, YANKS it, then wrenches for an ELBOW BREAKER! Rocky KICKS Shibata in the bad arm, then brings Shibata around. Rocky turns Shibata over, traps the right arm and he pulls on the bad one, SACRIFICE! Shibata writhes and clutches the elbow. Rocky storms up to hook that bad arm and KNEE DROP! Rocky drags Shibata up, wraps the bad arm around the ropes, and then digs his boots in. Rocky CHOPS, Shibata drops to his knees, but Rocky wrenches again. ELBOW BREAKER! Rocky KICKS the bad arm again! And again!

Rocky cravats to snapmare Shibata, then runs to basement dropkick! Rocky fires up and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns, Rocky KICKS Shibata in the arm! Shibata eggs Rocky on and the fans rally up. Rocky KICKS again, but Shibata stands! Rocky KICKS, and KICKS, but Shibata just steps into them! Shibata DECKS Rocky and the fans fire up! Rocky is dazed but Shibata brings him up. Shibata CHOPS and the fans “WOO~!” Shibata CHOPS again, and CHOPS again! And CHOPS and UPPERCUTS and runs, but Rocky dumps him out! Shibata stays on the apron, and gets a SLEEPER! The ref counts, Rocky wrenches free to HOTSHOT the arm! Rocky reels Shibata in through ropes, to KICK, KICK and he goes up! MISSILE DROPKICK!

The fans fire up, Rocky drags Shibata to a cover, TWO! Rocky frowns but stays focused as he brings Shibata up. Rocky cravats, Shibata pushes out of Sliced Bread!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by submission (advances to the Triple Threat)

And with that, we’re two thirds of the way to that contender’s match! Shibata shows Rocky respect, Rocky shows it back, and Rocky tells Shibata to go win that title. Will The Wrestler get past the Triple Threat to get another shot at Jericho?

Well, just like Shibata did with Hook, Bryan Keith makes his way out while Shibata’s leaving. The Bounty Hunter gives The Wrestler a tip of the hat, will this be the final piece to the puzzle? Or will things get literally much bigger for Dynamite?

As the Iron Savages make their entrance, Jacked Jameson tells “all you fat morons, skinny idiots, and Low T Losers to shut up.” The fans boo instead, but Jameson says he rode the Max Rail Line from the airport to the hotel downtown, and all along the tracks, it is filled with trash! Now that they’re here in the Moto Center, it’s funny, because it’s also filled with trash! The fans boo being insulted, but Jameson says he can’t wait to leave this dump. But this is the Sauce Hoss, Beefcake Boulder! He’s sippin’ sauce, livin’ hoss, and taking everybody to #TIDDYCITY! And then he just attacks Keith!!

FTW Contender Series: Bryan Keith VS Beefcake Boulder w/ The Iron Savages!

The bell rings and Boulder fires big elbows and clotheslines into Keith in a corner! Bulky Bronson and Jacked Jameson cheer him on, but Keith slips free of the scoop! Keith KICKS and KICKS and KICKS, then runs, but into a BOOT! Boulder drags Keith up, scoops him again, and flexes as he carries Keith around. POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Keith is tougher than that but Boulder tells Jameson to pass him that Savage Sauce! Jameson gets on the apron but the ref tells him to hop down. This is all a distraction so Bronson can get involved! Boulder brings down the straps but Keith sends Bronson into Tiddy City!

Bronson falls, Keith BITES them tibbies! The fans fire up, Keith runs, but Boulder ELBOWS him down! Boulder goes up, but Keith RISING HEADBUTTS! Boulder wobbles, Keith goes up and reels him in, for DIAMOND DUST!! Cover, Keith wins!!

Winner: Bryan Keith, by pinfall (advances to the Triple Threat)

Now that was a BIG win for Bryan Keith! The Triple Threat is set, will The Bounty Hunter be just one step away from having his prize?

 

Backstage interview with Pac.

Lexy Nair has found The Bastard somewhere in the bowels of the arena, and says that last week, The Bang Bang Gang had a message for him. Does Pac care to respond? Pac says he couldn’t care less! But obviously, he saw their little message. Credit where credit is due, those guys are very funny chaps. Hilarious, even. And typically, they’re naughty behavior would really ruffle his bastard feathers. But not today. He couldn’t care less. Pac hasn’t felt a thing in weeks! And you expect him to care about those idiots?! In fact, let this be an open invitation! Make him feel something! Make him feel anything, boys! He’s begging you, daring you! Make him care. Try harder.

And as for Lexy, just leave him alone. She nods and leaves. The Bastard is in no mood, but will that all change the next time Bullet Club Gold takes aim at him?

 

Bullet Club Gold is here!

AEW returns from break, and wait! They’ve attacked Pac! They drag him out here on stage! Jay White kneels beside Pac, gets a mic, and makes Pac sit up. “I bet you care now, don’t you? Bastard.” The Switchblade & The Gunns leave Pac down and out, and White says he told Pac to stay out of their business. Is Pac going to heed the Bang Bang Gang’s warning? Or is he only going to escalate things from here?

 

The Patriarchy speaks.

Christian Cage tells Nick Wayne, “You have a match right here tonight on Collision. And it’s jut a precursor to this coming Wednesday on Dynamite, because you are gonna be facing… Swerve Strickland. I know you’re ready for it. Yo have our support.” Nick thanks Christian, and says he’s been meaning to talk with him. A year ago, when Swerve jumped him in the garage, Nick was just a boy. A kid. But ever since teaming with Christian, he has changed. Nick is now a man! And tonight, this is just a warm-up. Nick knows he can beat Swerve on his own. Nick heads out, Christian & Mother Shayna beam with pride. Will Swerve’s House soon end up in Wayne’s World?

 

Orange Cassidy VS Isiah Kassidy!

Freshly Squeezed is certainly feeling out of sorts after Trent Beretta made things all about #JustTrent. But likewise, Private Party might have to get serious as sadly, Marq Quen is again on the shelf. Cassidy or Kassidy, who wins to get themselves back on the right track?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Cassidy as he and Kassidy circle. Zay runs up, Cassidy trips him but Zay kicks him away. Things speed up, Zay hurdles, Cassidy leaps over, then they keep moving.

Zay flips up and over, then RAMS Cassidy into barriers! BARRIER BACK SUPLEX! Trent pretends to be concerned as Zay puts Cassidy in.

Zay climbs up, leaps, but Cassidy gets away! Zay rolls, Cassidy ducks ‘n’ dodges, but runs into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Zay drags Cassidy up, whips Cassidy into a corner hard, and Cassidy tumbles up and out! Trent applauds, the ring count starts, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Zay leaves Cassidy behind, Cassidy rolls his way towards the apron but the count is 5 of 10. Cassidy stands and rolls in at 7, only for Zay to DROPKICK him back out! Zay then goes out to get Cassidy, and whips him hard into barriers! Zay mocks the hands in pockets, then he stomps away on Cassidy. Zay drags Cassidy up and puts him in the ring, then slingshot SENTONS! Zay mocks the hands in pockets some more, then soaks up the heat with a mocking thumbs up. Zay then mocks the “devastating” kicks! Zay kicks and kicks, but Cassidy fires body shots in return! Zay gets around to hit a BIG back suplex!

Zay talks trash, stalks Cassidy, then drags him up. Zay CHOKES Cassidy on the ropes, but the ref counts. Zay lets off at 4, argues with the ref, then drags Cassidy up. Zay whips Cassidy hard into buckles! Cassidy falls in a heap and flops right out of the ring. Zay drags steel steps over, talks a little trash on Trent, then grabs Cassidy. Zay SMACKS Cassidy off the steps, talks a bit more smack on Trent, but Trent tells him to focus on Cassidy. Zay drags Cassidy up to the very top of the steps, and Trent says go ahead. Zay lifts, Collision returns to single picture, but Cassidy fights back! Cassidy back drops Zay to the floor!

The fans rally for Cassidy as he gets in the ring. Cassidy grits his teeth, Trent frowns, and Zay rolls back in. Cassidy drags himself up with the ropes, the fans rally, and Zay storms up, but into counter punches! They go back and forth, Zay eggs Cassidy on, so Cassidy ROCKS him again and again! Zay RAMS Cassidy into a corner, then reels him in, to suplex! STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! The fans fire up, Cassidy runs, tilt-o-whirl DDT! The fans fire up again while Trent scowls.

The fans rally, Trent is upset, but Zay drags Cassidy up and reels him in. Cassidy lifts to BEACH BREAK!! Cover, Cassidy wins!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

Trent is disappointed but Callis is pleased. Is Cassidy really going to end up turning to the dark side- er, Don Callis Family? Lexy interviews Trent at ringside, saying we saw him attack his former best friends. And now he’s here in the front row to watch the match. Clearly, this is far from over. Trent says being here ringside, it is plainly obvious that he is a better wrestler than Cassidy! The fans boo but Trent says the only reason Cassidy won was because he cheated! Trent claims Cassidy is a sociopath who thinks rules don’t apply to him! But they do! Rules matter!

But while we’re all out here, Trent wants to issue a challenge for Double or Nothing! A straight up wrestling match! Trent VS “that narcissist,” Orange Cassidy! Cassidy DECKS Trent!! Cassidy drags Trent over the railing, security separates them fast! The fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” but we’ll see that soon enough. Will Trent suffer for what he did? Or will his delusional ego fuel him until he’s gotten rid of all his former Best Friends?

Deeb backslides Anna, rolls her through and reels her in! Deeb tucks the arms, for the DEEB-TOX!! But that’s not all, Deeb kicks Anna over to get that leg! HALF CRAB! Wait, Luther is out here? He is taking Deeb’s banner?! Anna TAPS, Deeb wins!

Winner: Serena Deeb, by submission

Deeb sees what that butler is up to, and she’s furious! Deeb can’t believe Storm would be so petty as to have her manservant take her banner! Mariah May walks out here now, she and Luther hold the banner open for all to see, but what’s this about? Oh well here comes Toni Storm herself! The Leading Lady looks at the banner, and strips behind it!? The banner is now a dress that wraps around Storm as she kicks off her shoes! Deeb is even angrier now, and she chases after Storm! Storm and entourage run away, will Deeb strip Storm naked of that Women’s World Championship?

 

Nick Wayne VS Jack Cartwheel!

The Prodigy of The Patriarchy, the honorary son of Christian Cage, is looking to get payback on Swerve himself next Wednesday. But will he be ready to make AEW into Wayne’s World? Or will he struggle to even get past the acrobatic wonder that is Jack Cartwheel?

The bell rings, Wayne runs up to BOOT Jack down! Wayne stomps away on Jack, lets off to soak up heat, and then takes aim again. Wayne runs corner to corner, but Jack cartwheels away! And cartwheels again! Jack runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS! Wayne bails out, Jack CARTWHEEL KICKS him down! The fans fire up for Jack, and he builds speed to FOSBURY FLOP, emphasis on flop! Wayne avoided disaster, then gets Jack up and into the ring. Wayne says he’s too smart for that, and he rains down fists! The fans boo as Wayne lets off, and he slams Jack down. Wayne stands on Jack’s face, scrapes him, then PENALTY KICKS him!

Wayne flexes and soaks up heat, then goes back to Jack. Wayne pats Jack on the face, goes up and up, into WAYNE’S WORLD!! Wayne goes to cover, but then says no, that’s not good enough. Wayne sits Jack up, tells Swerve that he’ll be waiting. “Whose House?”! HOUSE CALL!! Cover, Wayne wins!

Winner: Nick Wayne, by pinfall

Message sent, but surely The Realest doesn’t sweat Nick Wayne. Will Swerve make Wayne’s World come crashing down? Or is this a trap game so close to Double or Nothing?

 

Six Man Tag: Bryan Danielson & FTR VS Lance Archer & The Righteous!

It would seem there’s a bounty out for The Elite’s opponents in Anarchy in the Arena. The American Dragon, Cash & Dax don’t mind, though, because they’re always down for a fight! Will AEW’s Top Guys prove to the EVPs that if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself? Or will The Murderhawk Monster alongside good o’ Dutch & Vincent show that #EverybodyDies?

Dax feeds Vinnie to Cash’s knees, then Cash fireman’s carries. He and Dax work together, assisted GOURD BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Cash headlocks, Vinnie powers up but can’t power out.

Three-fourths of Team AEW made it work, and surely The Elite is not happy about this! But then The Righteous attack! Archer hits Bryan with an APRON CHOKE SLAM! This was never about the match but about the damage done! AUTUMN SUNSHINE for Dax!! Archer goes looking under the ring while The Righteous get Cash up. Vinnie finds a chair! Archer CHOKES Dax, Dutch JAMS Cash with the chair! That chair is set down, Archer uses another to JAM Dax again and again! The fans boo, but no back-up is coming with Eddie injured and Darby absent. Archer lifts Cash, for a FULL METAL BLACKOUT!!

Cash writhes on top of the steel, but the torture isn’t over! The chair is put on top of Dax and Vinnie goes up! FULL METAL SWANTON BOMB!! But here comes Daniel Garcia! He has a chair, too! Garcia JAMS Archer, DECKS Vinnie, then hits a SAIDO on Dutch!! Garcia runs up to clothesline Dutch up and out! The fans fire up as Garcia runs off Vinnie and Archer, too! But was the save a little too late with FTR suffering the worst of it? Are The Elite going to make sure there’s no one to even be on Team AEW?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision here, and of course more is set up for Double or Nothing. Very good promo from Moxley and Claudio, and Moxley VS Takeshita is made, but it will just be an IWGP World Heavyweight Championship  Eliminator, not a straight up title match. Maybe that means Takeshita wins so that he earns a title match for Forbidden Door, and then he loses there. Though, if that’s the case, Moxley must be getting past Evil at NJPW Dominion just a few weeks before Forbidden Door. Moxley’s great in the ring and all but I’m starting to agree with Shota Umino in his interview, where he said NJPW should not be some feeder to AEW.

Interesting for AEW to have Collision stationed in one spot for a six week stretch like that. Is this to make up for bad ratings/attendance for Collision? I mean, if they keep Collision interesting during that time, sure. Having something like tonight’s FTW Contender Series could help. I figured Hook would make it in, and same for Shibata. It seems the new attitude for The Iron Savages won’t count towards anything on AEW programming, Keith took Boulder out pretty easy. Hook VS Shibata VS Keith is going to be great stuff, and seeing as Jericho’s promo naturally called out Hook, there’s a good chance Hook wins. Though it’d be a great twist in the story if it wasn’t Hook or even Shibata but Keith getting his shot so that he can have another PPV title match under his belt.

Great stuff out of Ospreay VS Taylor, and I figured Ospreay would win. Great little brawl of him fighting off The Kingdom, though I was kinda hoping at least Kyle Fletcher would show up to connect the dots on Don Callis Family backing each other up. Great match of Cassidy VS Kassidy, even with Trent showing up ringside as a partial distraction. Great win for Cassidy, and Cassidy VS Trent is now made for Double or Nothing. That could go either way depending on how this courting of Cassidy goes for Don Callis, which also probably relates to how things go for Ospreay in that International Championship match. I still don’t want Cassidy to go Heel and I still don’t see Callis making a Face run work.

Very good promo from Pac to call out Bang Bang Gang, and wow I didn’t think Bang Bang Gang would get him so soon. Still unclear if this becomes a trios thing even though the Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions do need to defend those titles at some point. But even just Pac VS White 1v1 would be awesome stuff, would love to see it. Good promo from The Patriarchy, and of course Nick Wayne wins, even though this has also been his first singles match in months. He sure isn’t beating Swerve but that probably ends up just a set-up so the Patriarchy can beat Swerve down, keeping the go-home math in Swerve’s favor.

Very good match from Deeb VS Anna, and what an out of the box move for Storm to take Deeb’s banner and make it a dress. Still hard to say what happens at Double or Nothing, but the fans are still just so in love with Storm, it doesn’t feel like she’s losing the title. And great Six Man Tag main event, great win for Bryan & FTR but I should’ve figured there’d be a beatdown. Garcia making the save is great, and honestly it’s a little surprising he wasn’t “the fourth man” over Darby. Garcia has teamed with FTR before, there’s history with Bryan when Garcia was torn between Bryan and Jericho, something about that makes even more sense than Darby just not liking The Bucks & Jack Perry.

But at the same time, Anarchy in the Arena being No Disqualifications, Garcia can still get involved to help. In fact, many AEW wrestlers could get involved to turn this into AEW’s Avengers Civil War/Endgame whatever. Which would be a great way to top off the PPV that makes five years of AEW, honestly.

My Score: 8.7/10
