Tag Team Gauntlet Part 3: FTR w/ Tully Blanchard VS Best Friends!

Chuck’s leg is still bothering him, but that’s not going to slow anything down! The teams sort out as AEW goes picture in picture, #AEWGauntlet.

#FollowTheRules? Depends on how you look at it. Hangman got rid of the Bucks for them, and FTR took advantage of a battered Chuckie T. But will Hangman who are really his friends at All Out?

 

AEW hears from Darby Allin.

In response to last week, Darby pretends to be Ricky Starks now, with the thumbtacks in his back to complete the look. “You really think I’m afraid of you, Ricky?” Darby climbs up a bridge’s frame to jump off the top! Darby isn’t afraid of anything. Will he use that recklessness to wreck Starks’ body all over again?

 

AEW All Out announces the 2020 Casino Battle Royale!

Darby Allin and Lance Archer have already stepped up to participate, who else jumps in for a future AEW World Championship match?

 

Lance Archer w/ Jake Roberts VS Sean Maluta!

As is the Murderhawk Monster tradition, Archer CLOBBERS a wrestler in the front row at ringside! Archer finally goes into the ring, will he “welcome” Maluta to AEW the same way?

Maluta goes after Archer before Justin Roberts even finishes his introduction! The forearms do nothing, the bell rings and Archer DECKS Maluta! Archer finishes his own entrance, taking off the jacket and shirt. Archer fakes the fans out, simply throwing the shirt down on the ground. Maluta gets up, Archer runs and DERAILS him! Archer pursues Maluta as Maluta flops out of the ring. Archer bumps Maluta off the apron, then has him against the railing to CHOP! Archer puts Maluta back in, looms over him, and clubs away on Maluta’s chest! The ref reprimands, Archer lets up but smiles as fans boo.

Archer drags Maluta up, Maluta fires off forearms and CHOPS, but they don’t bother Archer at all. Archer CLOBBERS Maluta again! Archer drags Maluta up, suplex TOSSES him to a corner! Archer stands Maluta up in the corner, runs corner to corner and back elbows hard! Archer keeps moving, hits another elbow, then a third! Archer soaks up the heat and then goes back to Maluta. Archer drag Maluta up, choke grip to MURDERHAWK CHOKE SLAM!! Cover, but Archer lets up! The Snake laughs as Archer drags Maluta up again. Archer CHOPS Maluta, hoists him up top and inverted crucifix for the BLACKOUT BOMB!! EBD CLAW!! Archer dribbles Maluta’s head, covers, and wins!

Winner: Lance Archer, by pinfall

Archer doesn’t let go of Maluta until he’s satisfied! The Snake “checks” on Maluta, but he doesn’t really care. Snake and Archer stick around because Snake’s going to speak, after the break.

AEW returns and Jake the Snake speaks. “Now, there are going to be 20 men that think they have the great chance of winning the Casino Battle Royal.” But only one man walks out with that, and it damn sure better be Archer. Archer has wanted to wipe the blemish off the record. That one little loss cost them so much time, but now is time for them to leave their mark. Does Archer think he can throw 20 men out? “As fast as they step in the ring, every single one of them goes out, because every… body… dies.” Feeding opponents to Archer is like feeding a wood chipper. You put the log in, confetti comes out. Some might think that’s boring, but they don’t. Roberts loves watching Archer hurt people.

But wait, who is this coming out? “Yo, kid. FTW. Bring it on.” Taz and his team come out!? Ricky Starks and Brian Cage are here, and Roberts mocks them as “The Flintstones.” Taz tells Jake needs to slow down. They’ve never crossed paths, so Taz doesn’t want Jake to make a mistake. The Murderhawk Monster will NOT be the winner at the Casino Battle Royal. It’ll be Team Taz, either through Ricky Starks or Brian Cage. Jake interrupts and tells Taz to put his guys in chicken suits, “because if they come to that battle royal, they’re going to get plucked!” Oh is that how they’ll play this? Taz is trying to be a gentleman. Jake doesn’t care about that. Taz wants to keep this calm. One of HIS men will win at All Out.

Cage and Archer want to throw down, but here comes Darby Allin! Ricky looks around but Darby is skating in from the outside! He gets right in and dropkicks Starks literally out of his shoes! And then slingshots onto Starks at the ramp! Darby has Absolute for a brawl, trips him up and hammers away! Starks gets up but can’t get away! Darby tackles Starks to the backstage area, and Archer is fired up. Jake says to leave it be for now, they’ll do this on their time. But the fans want to “Let Them Fight!” Cage eggs Archer on, holding up the FTW Championship. Forget who wins, who survives the All Out Casino Battle Royal with these four in it?

 

MJF and team head out.

Apparently MJF needs a walker. And he asks if Lee Johnson thinks this is funny. Lee says no. Really? Wasn’t he laughing? He wasn’t. Good. MJF vows to get Moxley for this. His walker gets stuck in the rug, so he has to strain himself to keep it going. Will Moxley literally sign away his right to use his best move?

 

AEW looks closely at the AEW Women’s World Championship showdown.

Hikaru Shida put out an open challenge. “If you think you are strong enough, tough enough and you think you have enough passion, show me. I am waiting.” The open challenge was answered by Thunder Rosa, the current NWA Women’s World Champion. Tony Schiavone remembers first seeing Rosa and thinking, “This girl is one of the most talented women’s wrestlers in the world.” Rosa vows to raise women’s wrestling to a new level. NWA President Billy Corgan tells fans who don’t know Rosa to prepare for a surprise, because no one loves the sport and a good fight like her.

JR speculates the magnitude of Thunder Rosa becoming a dual champion between NWA and AEW. That’s a “big if,” because wrestling is what Shida is put on this earth to do. When AEW Management approached Corgan about such a collaboration, Rosa VS Shida, he was all for it. All champions should be fighting champions, and this is a great opportunity for the two companies to work together. We get a glimpse at the contract signing between Shida and Rosa. They both sign on the dotted line and it is official. Rosa says that title will be hers, but Shida says she will win. Only one will be proven right on September 5th!

 

MJF and team head to the ring.

The walker gets stuck again but he manages to make it down the steps of the ramp and to the ring. Though he obviously needs help to get through the ropes. Is MJF even medically cleared for All Out? Moxley makes his entrance now, from the stands! The fans cheer as Moxley has his copy of the contract. Moxley joins MJF and the rest in the ring, and MJF’s lawyer reminds us that the contract is to ban the “double arm DDT” for the All Out championship match. MJF signed it and says it’s that easy. Moxley double checks it as MJF says we’ve seen a million contract signings in wrestling. 10 out of 10 times, it ends in physicality. But “Jonathan,” as much as MJF would love to slap off that snide smirk over Moxley attacking “like a gutless coward” trying to end MJF’s career, MJF won’t. Because unlike-

The fans cheer loudly so MJF has to speak louder. MJF says he can separate business from emotions. So please, practice social distancing. Kinda like his hairline right now. Hah, funny. MJF will get there one day, after he hits puberty. Hah, really funny. Moxley talks rather eloquently for “someone from Middle America, not that that says much.” And Moxley is sharp, like a marble. But MJF has to admit everyone wants to see this match. Since it was announced, fans have been clamoring for Dictator Jon VS MJF. But MJF just doesn’t get the hype of this “one trick pony.” Ooh~ look at me, I’m Jon Moxley, I’m crazy! But after watching him, MJF realizes Moxley is really good. And that’s why fans love him, right? Fans cheer to confirm.

Fans like Moxley because he is a badass. In fact, MJF remembers when Mike Tyson was here and watching a Moxley match. Tyson pointed and said in front of everyone, “I wouldn’t want to be in a dark alley with that guy.” That’s powerful. And neither would MJF, really. No one in their right mind would. But sadly, at All Out, it won’t be an alley. It’ll be a wrestling ring. And MJF’s bad neck or not, that is where Moxley is in danger. MJF is a pro-wrestling prodigy, and on September 5th- Fans, MJF loves you but c’mon, he’s talking. MJF says that he will systematically take Moxley apart, target Moxley’s weakness and use every single part of the ring to his advantage with the same steady hands as a brain surgeon.

And then does Moxley know what happens next? Moxley will panic. Moxley is not a wrestler, but a glorified goon. Moxley will try to get MJF to fall into the same trap as everyone else: going outside of the ring and into Moxley’s territory. Moxley wants MJF on the floor, by the steps, the railing, because that is all Moxley knows. All Moxley studied and idolized were guys like The Sandman, New Jack, Jon Zandig, and Onita. Y’know, “hot garbage.” The guys MJF studied were wrestlers. Buddy Rogers, Ernie Ladd and Tully Blanchard. And because of that, MJF has too high of a ring IQ to play Moxley’s game. MJF will keep Mox in the ring “like a dog on a leash” and beat Mox like the dog he is. The fanboys will be calling ASPCA but it’ll be too late. At the end of All Out, MJF has “Pretty Platinum,” the most important title in all of professional sports, and he becomes our AEW World Champion! We deserve better.

But, Jon, if you think you’re so good and are a better wrestler, MJF can’t wrap his brain around how Moxley thinks he needs one little move. Does anyone else get it? Unless Moxley isn’t man enough to beat someone without the Paradigm Shift. If that’s the case, maybe Moxley should tell his hot little wife that MJF’s single. All Moxley does is stand up hearing those fighting words, and the lawyer shouts at him to stay back or get sued. Harm a hair on MJF’s head and they’ll sue. Sign the contract or get sued! Moxley tells the lawyer, “Sit down, dick wad.” Same for Flex Magazine, Wardlow. Fans cheer Moxley on as he continues.

“Should I sign this contract?” Well he’s no lawyer, but it’s pretty simple: Does Moxley need the Paradigm Shift to beat MJF? No. But does Moxley want to dump MJF six to seven more times on his head? Yes, very much. Does he want MJF to have permanent neck damage? Kinda. Because Moxley doesn’t like MJF. What MJF wants to do is take away Moxley’s most dangerous weapon, but what he’s forcing Moxley to do is to get creative. MJF is forcing Moxley to think of all the limbs he could snap. Or all the way she could choke MJF until he’s blue and passes out. Moxley is now thinking of all the ways he could hurt MJF.

Now Moxley doesn’t want to get sued, he doesn’t know any lawyers. One public defender, but even he’s in jail. So Moxley has to sign the contract, and he does. “But remember two things: Nothing you say matters; and nothing I sign matters.” Because at All Out, MJF is a dead man. The fans is fired up as Moxley signs, and MJF celebrates. “You idiot!” The lawyer says that when this is all over, maybe he’ll represent Moxley because boy did he do the stupidest thing he’s ever done! Yeah, good business. And no one broke the table. And thanks for being reasonable about Moxley’s amendment to page 17, “that was clutch.” Wait, what? There were only 16 pages. What’s on page 17? They didn’t read that? Dude, never sign something without reading it!

Because you see, next week is a tune-up match. Moxley VS the lawyer, Mark! And if Mark doesn’t show, “bonehead” MJF doesn’t get his title match! WHOA!! MJF is furious! And in the match with Mark, the Paradigm Shift WILL be legal. Wear a helmet. Hmm, maybe Moxley can be a lawyer. Thank you, AEW, good night! Moxley gets the better of MJF’s legal team, and now he’ll get to get the Paradigm Shift out of his system before All Out!

 

AEW reviews the coming grudge match of Best Friends and Proud ‘n’ Powerful!

Santana clears the air: Best Friends are dumbasses. Santana and Ortiz wreck Trent’s mom’s van, and the best Best Friends can come up with is, “Apologize!” They must be buggin’. And they wouldn’t have made it home that night anyway. This wasn’t even about the Best Friends anyway. But props to Best Friends puffing up your chests and helping out Orange Cassidy. But now they gotta deal with the pitbulls. PNP will apologize ahead of time that Mama Baretta wasn’t in the van when it got wrecked! Time to pay your dues to the illest, boys!

 

8 Man Tag: The Butcher, The Blade & The Lucha Brothers VS Joey Janela, Sonny Kiss, Brian Pillman Jr. & Griff Garrison!

Enough said! Will anyone be able to stop this fearsome five man unit?

 

The Dark Order heads to the ring.

Colt Cabana smiles and applauds as Evil Uno has a mic. “Wonderful! Beautiful!” Stu Grayson and the Numbers are having fun as they bring a casket out! They set it down on stage, and Uno says “The Dark Order has been on Cloud 9 since last Saturday’s AEW Dynamite.” Evil Uno has never, ever been this happy! Stu went out of his way and bought two of the most beautiful vehicles on his dream list, those both being Snapper brand riding mowers… The Exalted One bought not just two lawnmowers, or even three, four or five. Someone help him put up a finger. Thank you, Alex Reynolds. SIX of the most exceptional riding mowers known to man now belong to them!

This is as much a celebration of championship gold as it is a celebration of this casket. This represents them bidding farewell to the man known as Cody. Where oh where is Cody? Open the casket, and there he is! But just kidding, it’s Preston Vance, aka Number 10, with a pretend American Nightmare neck tattoo. Throw away that ugly Nightmare Family track suit and close the lid! The casket lid is closed on the Nightmare Family! The story is over and they are buried to make way for a new king of wrestling! The NEW TNT Champion, Mr. Brodie Lee! Isn’t he great?!

Mr. Brodie Lee arrives, holding the title high and wearing a brand new suit. Anna Jay is with him, and everyone gets a high five from Mr. Brodie! Colt shakes Brodie’s hand and Stu gets a hug. Brodie tells Tony Schiavone to get off commentary to join them on stage. Brodie takes the mic and leads the way into the ring. Schiavone joins them and gives us another introduction of the TNT Champion, Mr. Brodie Lee. To be honest, Schiavone can’t see anyone taking the title from him, especially with his group behind him. Brodie wants us all to look back to December 2019. “While each and every one of these men was laughed at and ridiculed by people like you,” Brodie felt he was in prison at home because of those same people!

But Brodie does what he says he will, and just a week and a half ago, Brodie told Cody that the gold was coming home with him. But Brodie did give Cody back the old belt, SMACK, just like that! The Dark Order chants, “Cody Sucks!” and Brodie points out the symbolism. They buried the Nightmare Family, and there is not a soul that can stand up to him! No more Open Challenges! No more indie wrestlers getting TV time on Brodie’s watch! And Cody is never, EVER getting the title back! The Dark Order chants “You Deserve It!” and he tells them to shut it. Brodie takes this time to introduce us to the newest member of the Dark Order family. This is Anna Jay, Number 99, the Great One, and the QUEENSLAYER!!

John Silver speaks up, and says he has been celebrating Mr. Brodie’s win since Saturday! Silver just wants to say Mr. Brodie is the man! Brodie DECKS Silver for talking too much. And then tells Reynolds to pick him up. Schiavone, leave. Silver, stand in line. There is not a soul on earth that can touch Brodie! The Dark Order is the hottest act in pro-wrestling, Brodie is the hottest champ in pro-wrestling, and there is NOTHING anyone can do about that! Look up and- Dustin Rhodes attacks!! QT follows after, and the two Nightmare Family members still standing take out the Numbers! But that’s still 10v2 and they get beat down! SPINE BUSTER for QT!

Stu stomps QT while Uno stomps Dustin. But here comes SCORPIO SKY! Scorpio swings on the numbers, clotheslines Uno out, and stares Brodie down. Scorpio points at the champ, but Anna Jay sneaks up to SLAP him! And then Brodie clobbers him! Brodie tells Colt to follow as he and Anna get out of the ring. Brodie drags Uno up to get on his case for letting this happen. Uno apologizes as Brodie, Colt and Anna leave. Uno coordinates the others but MATT CARDONA hits a ROUGH RYDER! Then he tosses Stu out, and evens the odds with the Numbers! Cardona, Scorpio and the Natural Nightmares hold the ring together! Brodie returns to sort his people out but also taunts Dustin with the title. Will Dustin and friends carry on the fight for Cody?

 

AEW returns with a backstage interview with Hangman Page.

Dasha finds Hangman at the bar, but where else would he be? She asks him why he cost the Bucks their match. But the Bucks storm in to get the answer for themselves. Why, Hangman? Is he afraid to face the Bucks again? Or is he insecure? Who even is Hangman anymore? Hangman’s pushed himself to this point. The Bucks wanted Hangman to be their friend but he kept thinking he wasn’t good enough. He was always good enough! All they wanted was a friend! There was a point in time when Hangman was a jobber, but this is even worse. It’s about damn time someone told him the truth. “You’re nothing but a drunk.” Matt takes Hangman’s drink to throw it in his face!!

Matt isn’t done running him down, either. “Since November, you’ve been asking for it, and we’ve been clinging on to something that doesn’t even exist anymore.” Hangman didn’t want to be their friend, didn’t want to be in The Elite, but The Elite was hanging on to something that wasn’t there anymore. And now, Hangman, this is what you wanted, so they’re done! Hangman is OUT of The Elite!! They slam the door and the mirror on it cracks. Hangman looks at himself in the broken mirror. Can Hangman stomach what he’s done?

 

3v1 Handicap Match: Britt Baker, Rebel & Penelope Ford w/ Kip Sabian VS Big Swole!

The Role Model gives Big Swole the match she wants, sort of. Swole forgot to specify what kind of match they’d finally have, so Britt took advantage of stacking the deck. Will Swole break the upper hand Britt thinks she has?

Britt has a mic to tell Swole, “You’re welcome for the house, my big return.” And also, seeing as how Swole has a fat chance of winning, the Role Model offers inspiration. If Swole wins, she and Britt will go 1v1 in any match Swole wants. “Let’s go, girls,” #ShaniaTwain. Rebel and Penelope attack Swole together, then they double whip. But Swole ducks the double clothesline to fire off forearms! Ford knees low, the ref has Rebel go to the corner, and Ford fireman’s carries as the bell finally rings! Ford hits a rolling senton and covers, ONE! Ford drags Swole up, Swole throws body shots but Ford ducks the roundhouse for Swole to HEADBUTT!

Ford kicks low, puts Swole on the ropes and chokes! The ref counts, Ford lets up but Britt uses a crutch to poke Swole in the head! Britt pokes Swole more, Ford drags her up to ram into the corner. Rebel tags in. Ford goes corner to corner to handspring back elbow! Rebel runs in to corner shining wizard! Rebel climbs up, as Britt tells her to, but she’s a bit wobbly. Swole ROCKS Ford and trips Rebel up! Swole rocks Rebel, climbs up and brings Rebel up for a SUPER STEINER! Cover but Kip distracts! Swole slides out to trip Kip, and take him DIRTY DANCING! Ford BOOTS Swole and puts her in!

Ford drags Swole into the drop zone for Rebel’s MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! Swole survives and Britt is furious! Rebel drags Swole back to tag in Ford, Ford mugs Swole and throws forearms. Ford chicken wings, Britt gives Rebel a crutch but obviously the ref sees that! The ref takes that crutch away, but Britt passes Rebel the other one! Rebel swings but Swole moves and Ford gets CLOBBERED! Swole throws Rebel out, covers Ford, Swole wins!!

Winner: Big Swole, by pinfall

And Britt has to eat her words!! Swole will get Britt 1v1 and in a match stipulation of her choice! Britt is stuck on the ramp since the steps aren’t wheelchair accessible. What will Britt have to face when she finally faces the consequences of her actions?

 

AEW sets up for next week’s Wednesday Night Dynamite!

AEW is hoping to return to their normal time slot, which means they’re hoping for that grudge match of PNP and Best Friends! Do Trent and Chuck have a hope and a prayer of surviving Santana and Ortiz? Jericho will also return to action to tune-up for the Mimosa Mayhem by taking on the Bad Boy, Joey Janela! Then a HUGE 8 Man Tag will feed into All Out as The Addiction and Private Party team up against The Young Bucks and Jurassic Express! The winning four then face each other at All Out, surely with tag title implications on the line! Will the Bucks rebound from Hangman’s betrayal to get a big win? And of course, let’s not forget Jon Moxley taking on MJF’s lawyer, Mark! Will Moxley leave his mark on Mark before focusing all his attention and sadistic creativity on MJF?

 

The Dark Order returns.

At least, Anna Jay, Stu and Uno. They have a folder that reads “Join Us,” and it is presented to Anna Jay’s partner in the AEW Women’s Tag Team Cup, Taynara Conti! Conti tentatively accepts, and hugs Jay! Is Tay going to #JoinDarkOrder now?

 

Tables Match: Matt Hardy VS Sammy Guevara!

The Spanish God has his cue cards again to speak to us while AEW is picture in picture! “Broken spirits? NOPE! Broken Sammy? Not a chance! Broken Matt? Stand by! Prepare to witness the breaking of a legend! Matt Hardy! You can’t delete a Spanish God. Hit me up!” And a doodle of a broken table. Will Sammy be made to eat those words after the break?

AEW returns as Hardy makes his entrance, and the bell rings. Hardy dodges Sammy to SLAP him, club him down, then scrap with him around the ring. Hardy cranks on Sammy’s head with a facelock then lets him go to kick him. Sammy gets to a corner, Hardy runs in but misses, and Sammy ENZIGURIS! Sammy whips but Hardy breaks free to club Sammy down. Hardy drags Sammy up but Sammy knees low. Sammy facelocks and hops onto the ropes but Hardy denies the DDT to shove Sammy HARD out of the ring! Hardy pursues, drags Sammy up and whips him up and over the railing! Hardy hurries after Sammy, punches away on Sammy in a spare seat and the crowd fires up!

Hardy whips Sammy but Sammy leaps the railing, only for Hardy to chuck chairs at him!! Sammy ducks and chair hits post rather than his head! Hardy continues after Sammy but Sammy KNEES him down! Sammy brings out more tables as AEW goes picture in picture, #AEWTables.

Sammy sets up the new table against the ring, Hardy hits low and powerbomb lifts, but Sammy fights back! Sammy is down, KNEES Hardy, then scoops him to a Torture Rack! GO TO HOSPITAL! Hardy is down but Sammy needs to catch his breath and check his face. Sammy comes back to drag Hardy up. Fans rally but Sammy puts Hardy on the table. Sammy moves things aside, gets back in the ring and builds speed. Sammy FLIES but Hardy moves, Sammy crashes through the table!! But this doesn’t end the match, because someone has to put their opponent through a table, not themselves. Hardy hobbles up and Sammy crawls out of the wreckage as things continue.

Hardy leans against a table, Sammy runs in but Hardy avoids the dropkick! Sammy bounces off the wood and clutches his leg. Hardy drags Sammy, brings him up and around, but Sammy escapes the bomb by grabbing ropes and getting back in the ring. Sammy is BLEEDING from his forehead as Hardy runs in and gives him a SIDE EFFECT! Hardy says “DELETE!” but he falls over! Hardy doesn’t seem any better right now, but he blocks a kick to spin Sammy around, only for Sammy to heel kick right back! Sammy goes after Hardy at the apron, and it’s hard to tell if Hardy’s bleeding or that’s just his red streak. Sammy tries to suplex, Hardy resists so Sammy clubs him. Hardy hits back, drags Sammy to the apron, but Sammy boots back!

Sammy goes up top, steadies himself, and LEAPS! Hardy gets clear, Sammy lands on his feet, but gets an APRON SIDE EFFECT! Hardy scoops Sammy to set him on a table and then goes back to the apron. Hardy leaps, but Sammy moves and Hardy crashes down through the table!! But just like with Sammy, this doesn’t count because Hardy put himself through the table. Sammy walks around the way, looks for something under the ring, and Hardy manages to get in the ring and hobble over. The ref checks on Hardy but Sammy brings a chair into the ring! Sammy aims but Hardy kicks him first! Hardy puts the chair around Sammy’s head, FULL METAL TWIST OF FATE!! How is Sammy even okay!?

The fan loses their minds as Hardy drags out a very special table! It has the word, “DELETED!” on it! Hardy puts it in, sets it up, and stands it over the chair?! Sammy is set on the table, right where the chair is wedged. Hardy hobbles to a corner, climbs up and the fans chant “DELETE! DELETE!” But Hardy wobbles and has to step down. Sammy climbs up, drags Hardy up, aims for the table… SUPERPLEX THROUGH TABLE AND CHAIR!! Sammy wins!!

Winner: Sammy Guevara

Jericho is definitely relieved and happy that his protege survived! How many stitches will it take for that gash on Sammy’s head? How many weeks will it take for Hardy to recover from this? But wait, here comes Orange Cassidy to go after Jericho!! Cassidy leaps over commentary to tackle Jericho into the backdrop! JR and Schiavone give this space as referees rush over. Jericho and Cassidy keep brawling, Sammy joins in, Cassidy decks Jericho! Then he gets free to SUPER PUNCH Jericho! Cassidy keeps raining down punches, referees try to get him to stop but he won’t. Jericho hits back with haymakers of his own, fans are fired up for “Freshly Squeezed!”

Referees finally separate Jericho and Cassidy, but then Jericho breaks free to tackle Cassidy again! Cassidy turns i around to ground ‘n’ pound, Sammy is down from the gash in his head, and this is how AEW has to end!! Will there be nothing but mayhem before these two go all out?


My Thoughts:

Another great Dynamite for being another special broadcast. Opening with the gauntlet makes all the sense in the world, and it was all great stuff. The biggest thing was Hangman betraying the Young Bucks and them kicking him out of The Elite! The emotion playing on everyone’s faces was so good! If this doesn’t mean Hangman joins FTR under Tully so they and Shawn Spears can be the AEW Four Horsemen, I don’t know what does. Though with Kenny Omega looking to be the Heel one, that could be the point so that we’re swerved when Omega joins them instead. We’ll definitely see when All Out has Omega & Hangman VS FTR for the titles.

Sean Maluta sure bounces around promotions, doesn’t he? And around the ring with Archer in there against him. Archer wins, of course, but the real development is that there’s stable warfare between Archer and Jake the Snake with #TeamTaz. Darby gets his shots in on Ricky Starks after a really effective promo, but I don’t see Darby joining up with The Snake. The 8 Man Tag was great, and the combination of Butcher, Blade and Lucha Bros is definitely incredible, and I think it’s very interesting Eddie Kingston had to deny this was a stable/faction. It totally is, and they’re definitely going to work together against the other 16. Now, I’ve yet to see a group of wrestlers working together in a battle royal make it to the end, but it’d be pretty cool if AEW let Kingston and his boys play that scenario out.

We got a great preview for Shida VS Rosa. Rosa is definitely great, even as other characters in Lucha Underground and Women of Wrestling, and so of course her match with Shida is a show stealer already. However, as wild as it would be, I don’t see Shida losing her belt to give us a double champion that is from outside AEW. But either way, I do think an NWA-AEW partnership will make for more great programming like this in the future. The contract segment was great, because as MJF said, they avoided a brawl. Instead, we got a great “surprise” for MJF where Moxley can get his Paradigm Shift quota in on the “lawyer.” Plus, MJF really should’ve studied up on “Dictator Jon,” because Moxley beat Brodie Lee with a submission at Double Or Nothing. Moxley can use that on MJF’s “bad neck” and win that way, too.

The 3v1 Handicap match really ended up more like a 2v1 because for one, Britt didn’t look like she could wrestle in kayfabe so she didn’t even bother. Rebel still needs a little work but it makes a lot of sense that she messes up and that helps Swole win. Swole and Britt will now have the match at All Out we all knew they’d have, but with Swole having the option to add a stipulation, that’s going to be a lot of fun. That tables match with Hardy and Sammy was wild! And I like that they played up the “accidental” table spots with Sammy and Hardy each crashing through tables by themselves. And WOW Sammy got bloody there. It was wild stuff, the table with a chair wedged under it was insane and it’s quite the surprise for Guevara to win but also great. Then Cassidy coming out of nowhere to go after Jericho was incredible, too! This is all great stuff from Cassidy, I still want the real blow-off to be Blood & Guts but Mimosa Mayhem is going to be a lot of fun.

My Score: 9.2/10

AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

Like many of us, The Aerial Assassin despise the Wolf of Wrestling for how he disrespected and used Daniel Garcia just to send a message. But also like many, Ospreay at least acknowledges and respects that this form of Maxwell Jacob Friedman is his most dangerous. Will Ospreay be able to put down AEW’s Ultimate Scumbag? Or will even the #BillyGOAT not be on the level of the devil?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who ignites episode 250!

The bell rings and the fans cheer while the two stare down. Ospreay gets the fans even more fired up, and then MJF bails out. The fans boo but MJF just hops the railing. MJF splashes fans with their own water! MJF then lounges on the barriers, offers a fist bump, but the fans just flip him off. So MJF rips a fan’s sign up and throws it back! MJF goes back to the ring, tells fans to shut up, and he approaches Ospreay. Only to dodge and strut, then swivel the hips. The fans boo but Ospreay smirks, this is the MJF he knew he was getting. They tie up, MJF wrenches to hammerlock, but Ospreay headlocks.

MJF powers up to wrench and WRING Ospreay, but Ospreay handsprings through, and copies the strut! Ospreay shows he can swivel hips, too! The fans cheer but MJF sarcastically says Ospreay’s clever. The two tie up, MJF headlocks, but the fans sing, “OSPRAEY~ OSPREAY OSPREAY OSPREAY~!” MJF is annoyed, Ospreay powers up and out, then things speed up. Ospreay hurdles then drops down to trip MJF up! MJF ducks the Hidden Blade to hit a headlock takeover! Ospreay headscissors, MJF kips free, and roles reverse as Ospreay headlocks for the takeover. MJF headscissors but Ospreay kips free.

MJF ducks the Penalty Kick, avoids the standing moonsault, then bobs ‘n’ weaves to avoid Ospreay’s punches and kicks. MJF shoves Ospreay, Ospreay springboards but MJF avoids that, too! MJF runs in, Ospreay dodges to handspring, but MJF gets under! Ospreay superhero lands, and the fans are thunderous while MJF is stunned! The fans cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for making this the opener! MJF is annoyed, but he and Ospreay tie up. MJF says Ospreay pulled hair! The fans boo because of course MJF is lying. MJF and Ospreay reset, tie up, and again MJF claims hair pulling. But then MJF pulls hair!

MJF puts Ospreay on the ropes, the ref counts, and MJF lets off, to take a swing! Ospreay dodges and then LARIATS MJF up and out! The fans fire up and Ospreay builds speed, only for MJF to get away. MJF says not today, but then Ospreay just changes course and he FLIES out onto MJF! The fans fire up and high-five Ospreay before he puts MJF in. Ospreay HOTSHOTS MJF, runs and BOOTS, then he hits as BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Ospreay prepares the elbow and the fans fire up. Ospreay aims but MJF scrambles to the apron. The fans boo, Ospreay storms over, but MJF YANKS Ospreay into buckles!

MJF stomps a mudhole in, drags Ospreay up to whip and WRING him into the corner! Ospreay flounders and MJF soaks up the heat. Then he blows snot at the fans and mocks them! MJF goes back to Ospreay, clamps onto an arm, and the fans rally and duel as Ospreay endures. Ospreay fights up, throws body shots, then forearms. MJF throws Ospreay down by his hair! The fans boo but MJF just soaks it up. MJF says he didn’t do anything. Then he clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Ospreay down. Ospreay fights up to JAWBREAKER free! Ospreay runs but MJF kitchen sink knees! MJF hauls Ospreay up to back suplex, but Ospreay lands out!

Ospreay reels MJF in to back suplex, but MJF lands out! MJF back suplexes, Ospreay lands out, into a STUNNER! Cover, TWO! MJF’s annoyed his Osaka Street Cutter, or perhaps Long Island Street Cutter, didn’t end this, but he storms after Ospreay. Ospreay is on the apron, MJF reels him in, HEAT- NO! Ospreay shoves MJF away, but MJF slingshots Ospreay into another STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and MJF is frustrated. The fans rally for Ospreay as he goes to the apron, but MJF storms over. MJF drags Ospreay in again, tries but Ospreay again denies him the Heatseeker! So MJF tries the slingshot, but Ospreay stops that!

Ospreay GAMANGIRIS MJF away, goes up a corner, and PIP PIP CHEERIO! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Ospreay rises but so does MJF. Ospreay fires haymakers on MJF first, then whips. MJF reverses but Ospreay CLOBBERS him! MJF bails out but Ospreay builds speed! Ospreay handsprings to SASUKE SPECIAL! The fans are thunderous but Ospreay takes a moment to check his ribs and catch his breath. Ospreay storms up on MJF, puts him in the ring, then goes up a corner. The fans fire up for the MOONSAULT, but MJF moves! Ospreay lands out, MOONSAULTS again, but MJF dodges again!

But the STANDING SHOOTING STAR hits! Cover, TWO! So Ospreay goes up and up to SKY TWISTER! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives the onslaught but Ospreay loads up that elbow! “This is Awesome!” as Ospreay aims again. MJF slowly rises, Ospreay runs up, but MJF bails out again! The fans continue to boo but Ospreay PLANCHAS! Down goes MJF and Ospreay high-fives more fans. And then Ospreay confiscates the timekeeper’s table! The fans are thunderous as Ospreay brings the furniture over to ringside. MJF hurries away into the ring now! Ospreay pursues as we see the fear on MJF’s face.

Ospreay CHOPS MJF in the corner! Ospreay stands MJF up to CHOP him again! The fans “WOO~” and Ospreay runs, but MJF pops him up to SUPERKICK him! MJF goes up, but Ospreay avoids the Panama City/Long Island Sunrise, but then MJF knees low! MJF reels Ospreay in but Ospreay powers out. Ospreay whips MJF to the corner, MJF goes up and over, but then MJF’s knee jams! Ospreay grabs that leg but it was a trap! MJF steps over and hits as STUFF PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and both men are down again. The fans rally up while both men stir, and MJF rises first.

MJF shows off that the leg is just fine, then does the Daniel Garcia dance just to mock him. MJF then drops an elbow on Ospreay’s leg. Ospreay CLUBS at MJF but MJF keeps the toehold. Ospreay fishhooks MJF and MJF lets go. Ospreay CHOPS, and CHOPS, then runs, but into a back drop! MJF leans on the ropes while he catches his breath, and the fans rally again. MJF storms back over, KNEES the leg, then smirks. MJF steps through, ties the legs up, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~,” even as MJF SLAPS Ospreay! And SLAPS him! MJF thrashes the hold, but Ospreay endures. Ospreay’s shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up!

Ospreay pries at the leglock, and the fans rally up as he works to turn things over. MJF fights that back, thrashes some more, but Ospreay grits his teeth. The fans rally harder and harder as Ospreay fights his way over, and he turns the hold onto MJF! MJF endures now, reaches out while shouting in pain, and he flails in order to turn things back onto Ospreay! The fans boo but Ospreay endures again. Ospreay drags MJF along, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts but MJF lets go at 4. MJF is frustrated but then he drags Ospreay up and to a corner. MJF CHOPS, takes a moment, then CHOPS again!

MJF wrenches, whips, but Ospreay can’t even make it all the way! MJF smirks while the ref checks Ospreay. Ospreay shakes out the leg, refusing to admit defeat. MJF storms over, stands Ospreay up, and CHOPS! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s back! MJF whips, Ospreay barely makes it to ropes! MJF wants after Ospreay like a shark with blood in the water, but Ospreay sits on the apron. MJF tells off the fans cheering Ospreay, but Ospreay is somehow still in this. So MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s face! The fans boo but MJF soaks it up. Ospreay throws body shots and haymakers! Ospreay CHOPS and MJF wobbles!

Ospreay CHOPS again, MJF flails more. Ospreay snarls, runs, but MJF CHOP BLOCKS the legs! MJF covers, TWO! MJF frowns but he stomps Ospreay’s leg. MJF then stands Ospreay up to CLUB him on the neck! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS his back! Ospreay fires big forearms! Then he fires Kawada Kicks! MJF wobbles, into a CHOP! MJF goes to ropes, Ospreay scoops him, but MJF CLAWS the eyes again! The ref reprimands and counts, MJF stops at 4. The fans boo but MJF whips. Ospreay ducks ‘n’ dodges, and DOUBLE LARIATS take both men down! The fans fire up again while Ospreay again clutches the leg.

Ospreay rises, but MJF KNEES the knee! Then MJF calls his shot! MJF suplexes, but STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE hits first! MJF wobbles around, Ospreay calls his shot now! Springboard, OSCUTTER!! But MJF flops all the way to ropes! Ospreay has to crawl his way over, and MJF flops to the floor! MJF’s ring awareness is strong but Ospreay pursues. Ospreay drags MJF up to put him in the ring, and then onto the apron. Ospreay uses a corner to go up and APRON OSCUTTER FLOP as MJF steps back! Ospreay writhes, signaling to his arm, and the ref hurries to check. MJF may have gotten lucky here, as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref has Ospreay go around the way but MJF is in pursuit! MJF shows no mercy as he grabs that bad arm, and RAMS Ospreay into steel steps! MJF stands on the steps to soak up all the heat, as well as talk some trash on Ospreay. It’s certainly in the vain of MJF is who AEW needs, not Ospreay. MJF drags Ospreay up and into the ring, then takes his time to taunt fans over the table. He flips the fans off, he isn’t gonna do what they want. MJF then goes back to Ospreay, grabs the bad arm, and he stands on it, to then STOMP it! MJF soaks up more heat as he paces around Ospreay, then clamps onto the arm again.

Ospreay endures the mounted armlock, and he fights to his feet. Now Ospreay pulls hair, but MJF throws Ospreay down by the arm. MJF grinds that shoulder but Ospreay still endures. The fans rally as Ospreay fights, stands up, and throws body shots. Dynamite returns to single picture as Ospreay ROCKS MJF with forearms. Ospreay whips, MJF reverses but Ospreay handsprings, only for MJF to KICK the bad arm! Ospreay clutches the elbow, but MJF hauls him up! Double underhooks, for a SHOULDER BUSTER! And then it’s back to the armlock! Ospreay rolls through, but MJF ducks the roundhouse to pump handle!

MJF adds a half nelson, MADE IN JAPAN! Or perhaps, Made in Long Island? Cover, TWO!! Ospreay knows that move from his rivalry with Shingo Takagi. The fans rally while both men are down again, “This is Awesome!” Ospreay and MJF slowly rise, MJF storms over, and he whips. Ospreay holds ropes to stop that, so MJF CLUBS the arm! MJF makes the pecs dance, whips again, but Ospreay reverses. Ospreay then dodges MJF to handspring and NEURALIZER KICK! Both men are down again and the fans stay fired up! Ospreay sits up first, then both men stand. Ospreay BOOTS MJF’s haymaker to then ENZIGIRI!

MJF wobbles, Ospreay wrenches an arm, and Ospreay CHOPS MJF off his feet! Ospreay drags MJF up to wrench and CHOP him down again! Ospreay stands MJF one more time, to CHOP, CHOP, and- NO, MJF blocks the chop! MJF WRINGS the arm, Ospreay cartwheels through! ENZIGIRI! Torture rack, TOWER HACKER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives and the fans can’t believe it! The fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but there’s still more show that has to happen! MJF crawls to the apron, Ospreay stalks him. MJF flops to the floor, but he’s near that table… Ospreay goes to the floor and brings MJF up.

MJF throat chops Ospreay! MJF runs away into the crowd, but Ospreay pursues! Ospreay fires hands on MJF even as MJF goes up the bleachers. Ospreay grabs MJF, bends him against railing, and offers free shots. A little girl starts punching MJF in the ribs! MJF flips her family off but Ospreay CLUBS away on MJF! Ospreay fist bumps the girl and drags MJF back up. Ospreay ROCKS MJF with a right and follows him down the stairs. Ospreay CHOPS MJF to keep him moving, but MJF takes a detour into the seats. So Ospreay makes MJF take a seat and punches down hands! The fans count along, Ospreay winds up, and hits TEN!

MJF flounders around, Ospreay shows that there’s one guy still wearing an MJF Kangaroo Kick shirt, and then pursues MJF. MJF pokes Ospreay right in the eyes! MJF CLUBS Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks MJF! Ospreay SMACKS MJF off the trash can! The fans fire up and Ospreay DUMPS MJF into the trash can! MJF kicks and flails but Ospreay BOOTS the can! MJF falls out, stumbles away, and Ospreay pursues. They finally return to ringside, and Ospreay refreshes the count that was never happening anyway. Ospreay then drags MJF over to the table, punches him onto it, then goes up the steel steps.

Ospreay then goes up the corner and fans are thunderous already! Ospreay aims, but MJF hurries off the table. The fans boo and Ospreay sighs, but Ospreay hops down to go after MJF. But MJF gut wrenches! Ospreay victory rolls, TWO! MJF has the victory roll, TWO! Ospreay has it, TWO! MJF is up, Ospreay gets around and hops on, POISON-RANA! MJF flounders to a corner, Ospreay runs up, but MJF pops him up! Another SUPERKICK as Ospreay is upside-down! MJF goes up, LONG ISLAND SUNRISE!! Cover, TWO!?! The fans are electric as Ospreay survives another hard shot! Ospreay then goes to the apron and then the floor.

MJF pursues, and we return to the table. MJF puts Ospreay on the table and then goes up the apron. The fans rally as MJF actually climbs the corner. MJF reaches the top, but then Ospreay slips off the table! The fans still boo, they want that table to see some action. MJF hops down, talks smack on Ospreay, then CHOPS him. MJF BITES Ospreay’s arm! The fans boo and tell MJF he’s sick! The ref counts, MJF lets off, but he then ROCKS Ospreay with a haymaker. MJF again mocks Daniel Garcia, even asking if Garcia has feeling in his arms again. MJF then whips Ospreay hard into railing! Ospreay almost ends up in the front row!

MJF makes Ospreay take a seat, and he CLAWS at Ospreay’s face! MJF refreshes the ring count, then runs in at Ospreay, to BOOT Ospreay against railing! MJF hops up to soak up more heat, then he refreshes with some water. That he then splashes at fans. MJF stalks Ospreay back to the table, refreshes the count, and then asks, “Ospreay who?” MJF stands Ospreay up to whip, but Ospreay goes up onto the railing, to OSCUTTER to the floor! The fans fire up again while both men are down! Ospreay clutches the bad leg and the bad arm, but he manages to rise up and put MJF in. Ospreay then swings, but into MJF’s dragon sleeper!

But Ospreay flips things around! The fans cheer, as Ospreay hits CROSS RHODES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives, but Ospreay storms after him in a corner. MJF uses the ref as a shield, then he pokes Ospreay in the eyes! MJF goes up to DOUBLE STOMP the bad arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, hammerlock and lift, DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Ospreay survives and the fans continue to rally behind him. MJF is frustrated but he pursues Ospreay to the apron. MJF drags Ospreay through ropes, and HEAT- NO! Ospreay throws MJF away, MJF’s leg “jams,” and Ospreay takes aim. Ospreay springboards but MJF hits ropes to trip him up!

Ospreay gets stuck up there, MJF goes up to LEAPING LARIAT!! Cover, TWO?!? MJF is beside himself as Ospreay survives again! MJF stalks Ospreay to the apron, drags him up, and gut wrenches! The fans freak out but Ospreay flails and kicks! Ospreay turns things around onto MJF, but MJF KICKS Ospreay! MJF then suplexes, but Ospreay slips free! Ospreay waistlocks but the arm won’t let him lift! So Ospreay SUPERKICKS MJF instead! MJF wobbles, Ospreay reels him in, and tucks him for an APRON STYLES CLASH!!! Both men fall to the floor and Little Rock is losing its collective mind right now!

Ospreay drags MJF up and into the ring, covers, TWO!!!! MJF survives but Ospreay is too tired to be upset. Ospreay just rises up, brings MJF to his feet, and reels him in. Even with one arm, Ospreay hits a LAST RIDE!! Cover, TWO!! MJF reminds us why he was once the longest reigning AEW World Champion while Dynamite goes back to picture in picture.

Ospreay shakes out the arms, but Doc Sampson is called over to check. Doc checks that arm, from lifting to turning. Then Doc checks with Ospreay if he wants to do “that,” and Ospreay says go for it. Doc YANKS Ospreay’s arm to pop it back in place! Ospreay clutches the arm again but it seems that did the trick. Ospreay has the fans fired up again, and he drags MJF up for Kawada Kicks! Ospreay stands over MJF while Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns and Ospreay calls his shot. MJF rises, and he spins Ospreay around to BITE Ospreay’s face! The fans boo, MJF runs, but Ospreay HIDDEN BLADES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives a shot to the face but Ospreay roars! The fans are thunderous as MJF sits up, into a BUZZSAW! MULE KICK! OSC- NO, MJF stops the cutter to gut wrench, and TOMBSTONE!! Cover, TWO?!?! Ospreay survives again and the fans again cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving us this instant classic. MJF snarls, and he uses wrist tape to CHOKE Ospreay! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off, and MJF goes to the corner with Ospreay.

MJF wrenches the bad arm, whips him hard into the corner, and Ospreay falls. The fans boo but MJF grins as he rises up. MJF storms over to Ospreay, stands him up and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! MJF whips again, and harder! Ospreay falls back, MJF flexes, but the fans boo. MJF mocks the United Empire crown then says shove it. MJF drags Ospreay up, whips him corner to corner again, but Ospreay reveres! MJF tumbles up, comes back, and Ospreay CHOPS! And CHOPS! But MJF blocks one again to WRING the arm again! Ospreay writhes, MJF leans on ropes, and then MJF runs in. Ospreay DUMPS MJF out hard!

The fans fire up and Ospreay goes to the apron, only for MJF to YANK him down! MJF puts Ospreay in the ring and says that’s why he’s the smartest wrestler in AEW. But not the wisest as Ospreay DIVING HIDDEN BLADES MJF!! Both men fall to the floor and the fans are thunderous again! Ospreay rises, a ring count starts, and fans count along. We hit 5 of 10, Ospreay puts MJF in at 6. Ospreay goes up the corner, and he BLINDSIDE CHEERIOS! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives again but Ospreay doesn’t get frustrated. Ospreay goes to the apron and climbs up the corner, but MJF again hits ropes! Ospreay lands bad on the corner this time!

MJF climbs up, throws hands, then goes to the very top. SUPER- NO! Ospreay stops the Steiner with one good arm! The fans fire up as he tucks MJF in, for a SUPER STYLES CLASH!! But Ospreay struggles to turn MJF over for the cover! ROPEBREAK!! Ospreay is frustrated now but there’s nothing he can do about that. Ospreay drags MJF up but MJF HOTSHOTS the arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, for an APRON HEATSEEKER!! Ospreay flops to the floor, and MJF looks at the table…! MJF puts Ospreay on the table, hurries back to the corner, and MJF climbs! The fans are going nuts already as MJF SUPER MACHO ELBOWS THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as MJF goes for broke! The ref checks both men, and they’re somehow okay to continue! “This is Awesome!” as we once again go picture in picture.

MJF flounders his way back to ringside and drags himself in. But Champion’s Advantage won’t let him win the title like this! Ospreay is still on the outside as we pass 5 of 10, and he starts to stir around 7. MJF then springs out after Ospreay to get him back in! Seems MJF was just resting, and he shouts about something, probably about how he’s better. MJF stands, paces around, then stomps Ospreay’s legs, then Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns again, and MJF has Ospreay in a Cobra Twist. MJF sneakily grabs the ropes to add on leverage! The ref looks but MJF lets go in time. Ospreay still endures, and MJF digs a knuckle into the ribs. MJF then again sneaks a grab at the ropes! The ref gets closer to catching him but the fans tell on MJF! MJF tells them all to shut up! MJF still grabs for ropes, but the ref sees it this time! MJF says he’s not doing nothing! The ref KICKS that arm! Ospreay then hip tosses free! Both men are down and the fans fire up again!

The fans sing for Ospreay as he crawls to a corner. MJF sits up then rises up to soak up heat. MJF hits the kangaroo stance?! The fans are torn, surely he isn’t serious. But then MJF runs up, KANGAROO- NO! Ospreay catches MJF!

Ospreay CATAPULTS MJF, but MJF lands safe on the corner! Only for Ospreay to tuck him in and CHEEKY NANDOS! MJF is still stuck so Ospreay goes up after him, for a SUPER POISON RANA! MJF lands out?! MJF shows he can do what Ospreay does and the fans lose their minds! LARIAT in the corner, then MJF hoists Ospreay up top. MJF goes up and up and smirks, gives some thrusts, then SUPER STEINERS! Ospreay lands out!! Ospreay shows MJF how it’s really done and MJF is in disbelief! Both men turn around, MJF swings but Ospreay goes Matrix! MJF returns the favor to dodge Ospreay!

Little Rock gives a standing ovation for this AEW Match of the Year contender! MJF crawls to a corner, Ospreay pursues. Ospreay puts MJF up top, ROCKS him, but has to slap some fire into himself. Ospreay goes up top, but MJF fires body shots!

MJF gut wrenches Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks free! Ospreay then slingshots back up, to SUPER OSCUTTER!! And HIDDEN BLADE!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Ospreay can’t believe it and now he’s mad! Ospreay throws off the elbow pad as Little Rock is erupting! MJF sits up, but DUCKS the Hidden Blade! Ospreay tumbles but MJF is also down, too tired to sit back up. Ospreay crawls his way back over, sits MJF up, but MJF SPITS at him!! Ospreay gets REALLY mad now! MJF panics, Ospreay HEADBUTTS him! Ospreay reels MJF in, the fans say do it, and Ospreay says yes! Underhooks, one minute warning, but Ospreay isn’t sure which Storm Attack to use!

Ospreay hauls MJF up, to STORM…! NO, Ospreay stops short of the driver! They fans boo, they want him to end MJF but Ospreay says he’s not like that anymore. Ospreay drags MJF up , MJF SHOVES Ospreay into the ref!! The ref goes down, we’re under 20 seconds! Ospreay hurries over to MJF, DYNAMITE DIAMOND RING PUNCH!!! Cover, MJF WINS!!!!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall (NEW AEW International Champion)

There was literally two seconds left, but MJF pulls it off!! The Wolf of Wrestling proves he’s still just a lowdown dirty snake, but he’s the snake that stole the gold from the #BillyGOAT. Medics help both guys get icepacks, water and oxygen, and MJF rises like a zombie to celebrate himself. The Scumbag may have survived The Aerial Assassin, but will he be ready to go All In against The Bastard?

 

Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

Arkady Aura is with the Sussex County Chicken, as well as Max Caster & Anthony Bowens, and says they asked for this time to talk with each other. Caster says that’s right, because they know Mr. Briscoe is on Team AEW for Blood & Guts. They also know that Team AEW needs a couple more partners, and the only way Mark gets “The Best Wrestler Alive” on his side is when Caster & Bowens join the team together. Plus, The Acclaimed just beat The Bucks a couple weeks ago, they have their number, this is a no brainer! Bowens says that’s right! And they’re also this close to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions once again, they want a piece of The Bucks’ asses!

Plus, when you think AEW, you think The Acclaimed, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So they want in! Mark says that’s right! They had his back a couple weeks ago, so as far as he’s concerned, The Acclaimed is in, baby! But Mark’s not the only man calling the shots on this, if you understand what he’s saying. In steps AEW World Champion, Swerve Strickland. Swerve says listen! They’ve been through their fair share of squabbles, so he knows what Acclaimed is all about. Swerve’s also been in battles with The Briscoes, so he knows Dem Boys are real tough people. There is nobody better to go to war with than those you’ve battled against.

Therefore, “y’all ready to get violent?” The Acclaimed say hell yeah! Hands in, and Mark warns The Elite that Team AEW is coming for them! LET’S GO, BABY!! Bowens & Caster follow Briscoe out, Swerve nods, will this team be ready to rip apart The Elite? Will Swerve be ready for The Rainmaker later on tonight in the main event? Or will Kazuchika Okada rain on Swerve’s House and wash it away?

 

“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

The Redwood introduces to the “seeds, saplings, roots and most importantly, branches,” the Learning Tree, Chris Jericho! The “For The World” Champion is accompanied by “Bad Apple” Bryan Keith as he makes his way out here, waving to Little Rock. The fans boo but Jericho still smiles. “Hi, guys~! Y’know, Little Rock, you need to take a few lessons from The Learning Tree. This city is such a high-crime, violent city, 1,533 crimes for ever 100,000 people, you can do better than that! But let’s talk about Dynamite 250 for AEW, I was on the very first Dynamite, and I’ve been on almost every single one since.

“And the ones that I missed, the Branches were so angry, cards and letters filed in, so I made a promise, I’m never gonna miss another Dynamite again.” The fans boo but Jericho says he’ll be on every one, even until episode 500! It’s like he’s said: When you listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. And when you don’t, people get hurt, dammit! This isn’t right! Jericho is begging us all to listen to him! Look to those who haven’t. Shibata’s arm, Hook getting that fireball to his face, that’s horrible. And then Samoa Joe is literally driven through a wall because he wasn’t listening to The Learning Tree!

Jericho is begging us, this has to stop! People are getting hurt! At this point, everyone should realize they need to listen to Jericho. Surely everyone knows the teachings of Jericho are so important. Who would be crazy enough not to listen? Who would be psychotic enough not to use the teachings of Jericho? Who would be maniacal enough to- IS THAT MINORU SUZUKI!? Jericho is very worried seeing the Meanest Man in the World returning here to AEW! Suzuki has a paper in his hands, but what could it be? Suzuki goes to the ring and fans get fired up. Suzuki waits, and he steps in at “KAZE NI NARE~!”

Suzuki stares Jericho down while the fans cheer him on. Suzuki looks at the FTW Championship, then he snatches Jericho’s mic. “Next week…” Suzuki holds up the paper, Keith snatches it, and Keith reads it for Jericho. This is an official order from AEW management. The Redwood AND Bad Apple are banned from ringside for Jericho VS Suzuki, an FTW Championship match! Suzuki then HEADBUTTS Jericho down! Bill goes to help Jericho and Keith backs up. Suzuki grins and waves, “Bye, guys~!” Jericho looks to be fearing for his life now that he knows there is someone crazy enough to ignore his teachings. Will the King of Pancrase cut down The Learning Tree?

 

The Elite speak.

Nicholas asks Matthew and Okada if they heard all that. The Elite heard what The Acclaimed, Mark Briscoe and Swerve Strickland had to say, and it is ridiculous! What pisses them off even more is that The Acclaimed think they’re just gonna become two-time AEW Tag Team Champions. Not on their watch! Matt says what those guys need is a reminder about just who the hecc they are! This is THE Elite, the greatest team in AEW. And after next week, they’ll have all the gold and all the power! Nick points out it won’t be all the gold. Swerve is still AEW World Champion. Well, Matt says after what they do to Swerve, that title might just end up vacated.

Because see, they’re dealing with the most dangerous people in the business. They’re going up against The Young Bucks, the greatest tag team ever. They’re dealing with the Continental Champion, The Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada. They’re dealing with the unpredictable Scapegoat, the TNT Champion, Jack Perry. And Matt’s favorite part: making his return to The Elite, Hangman Adam Page! And oh, in steps the TBS Champion, Mercedes Mone! The CEO says hi to the EVPs, and she thanks them for banning Britt Baker from even being backstage tonight so that she can’t ruin Dynamite 250 for them.

Matt says let’s just say there’s no drama coming from The DMD to the CEO, via the EVPs. Okada whispers something to Matt and Matt asks if Mone will do the dance for them. Oh, her CEO shuffle? Of course! C E O! C E O! Ok, got to go~! Mone heads out, Okada wipes himself down. He claims it’s just really hot back here. Matt & Nick say okay, sure. But will The CEO still be golden like The Elite? Or will she end up the Native Beast’s next meal?

 

AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

Well, as we just heard, there will be no Britt Baker anywhere tonight because that is how bad she got under The CEO’s skin. Mone even made sure this Open Challenge would not allow Britt to answer it, so in steps a different former AEW Women’s World Champion. Will Mone find there are threats all over the AEW roster? Or will she still be making that double champion type bank?

The introductions are made, the teal title is raised, and we see who is truly the Face of TBS!

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally and duel, the two tie up, and Mone tries but she can’t push Nyla back at all! Nyla puts Mone in a corner, Mone goes up the ropes, but the ref counts. Nyla lets off but Mone scuffs her. Nyla is annoyed, but she mocks Mone’s dance. Nyla runs up, Mone leaps over, but then Nyla runs up again. Mone gets around, waistlocks, but Nyla THROWS her away! The fans rally, Nyla storms up but Mone drop toeholds her onto ropes! Mone CLUBS and stomps away on Nyla. Mone drags Nyla up to stomp into a corner, but the ref counts. Mone digs her boots in, but lets off at 4.

Mone backs off to then storm back up and drag Nyla up. Mone talks trash, but Nyla reels her in! Nyla suplexes, and she holds Mone up, does a squat or two, but Mone slips free! Mone CLUBS Nyla, runs, but Nyla scoops her! Nyla stops the tilt-o-whirl, and shouts, “Have you lost your mind?!” Nyla suplexes to hang Mone out to dry! Nyla KNEES Mone, goes to the corner and climbs, and the fans fire up for the GUILLOTINE KNEE DROP! Nyla drags Money to the cover, TWO!! Mone survives and Nyla is frustrated, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla drags Mone up, ELBOWS her down, then she drags Mone into a backbreaker rack across her knee! Mone endures, even as Nyla pushes her down! Mone fights free with kicks, then fires forearms. Nyla ROCKS Mone right back! Nyla then torture racks Mone to thrash her around! Mone endures, slips down, but Nyla blocks the arm-drag! Nyla whips Mone into the corner, then runs in, only for Mone to move! Nyla POSTS herself, then Mone goes to the apron. Mone BOOTS Nyla into the post! Nyla falls back, Mone soaks up the cheers and jeers, then she sits Nyla down. METEORA! Mone drags Nyla to a cover, TWO!

Mone is upset so she rains down fists! The ref reprimands, Mone lets off to swagger around. Mone stalks Nyla, stomps her around, then bumps her off buckles. Mone stands Nyla up for forearm after forearm, then she climbs up to rain down fists! Mone goes to nine, soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Nyla brings Mone off the corner! Mone RANAS Nyla away, hurries to run, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO! Mone is frustrated but Nyla’s a former champion for a reason. Mone drags Nyla up, and clamps on with a COBRA TWIST! Nyla endures, even as Mone puts on the pressure. Mone ELBOWS Nyla in the ribs, but Nyla powers out with a hip toss!

Mone stands, blocks a boot and KNEES Nyla back. Mone runs, slips around, and has a SLEEPER! Dynamite 250 returns to single picture while Nyla starts to fade! The fans rally, Nyla fights up, and she swings Mone around into a facelock! Nyla snap suplexes Money away! The fans fire up while Mone flounders to a corner. Nyla snarls, rises up, and runs in to back body block! And then LARIAT! Mone staggers back up, Nyla runs in at the corner and SPLASHES! Mone sits down, Nyla fires up and Little Rock is with her! CANNONBALL! Nyla drags Mone to a cover, TWO!! Mone survives, showing why she’s been champion all over the world.

Nyla snarls, and she goes up the corner. Mone stands to kick the leg! Nyla falls, Mone goes up and up to VADER BOMB! Nyla sputters, Mone gets moving, BOOT WASH! Mone pushes Nyla, goes up the corner, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Mone can’t believe it! Mone drags Nyla up, turns her, but Nyla’s too big to Gory Especial! Nyla RAMS Mone into the corner, the fans duel, but Nyla puts Mone up top. Nyla then climbs up to have Mone’s arm. But Mone fires elbows on Nyla! Mone adjusts position, and SUPER BULLDOGS! Mone then brings out a glove, all to mock Britt!

Mone puts on her glove, spells out “C! E! O!” RINGS OF SATURN, and then the LOCKJAW!! Nyla BITES Mone’s fingers!! That’s what Mone gets! But then DRIBBLES Nyla’s face off the mat, and puts on the STATEMENT MAKER! Nyla taps, Mone wins!

Winner: Mercedes Mone, by submission (still AEW TBS Champion)

Mone may not be able to do it like The DMD, but she still wins out and holds up both belts. Mone then spots a fan with a sign, “DMD > CEO,” and she snatches that sign! Mone RIPS the sign up, and the fan wearing the Sting mask is upset. That fan pie faces Mone!? Because surprise! It’s BRITT BAKER!! The DMD suck into the show and The CEO is running for her life!! Security surrounds Mone to shield her from Britt! The guards then swarm Britt, and Mone is safe, for now. Will Britt have her Wembley Stadium moment with Mone whether Mone likes it or not?

 

Jack Perry speaks.

The Scapegoat flips a coin, then tells Darby Allin, “You wanted to get my attention? Well, you’ve got it now. All you had to do was ask. Did you really have to go and hurt Brandon Cutler? Maybe what I mean to say is, do you think I give a s*it about Brandon Cutler?” He is standing OVER Brandon! And then THROWS him through a door! Jack SMACKS Brandon off a boiler, then tells Darby to come find Jack tonight. Then Jack will show Darby what real sacrifice looks like. Will The Relentless One get that fight with the TNT Champion after all?

 

Toni Storm is here!

The Leading Lady is back so soon after how brutally Mariah May betrayed her? Wait, no… That’s Mariah May taking her cosplay to a new level. The understudy is now portraying the part of AEW Women’s World Champion as she menacingly makes her way down to the ring. The fans boo the protege for how she did Toni Storm dirty, but Mariah grabs a mic for herself. The fans chant for Toni but Mariah sighs. “Let’s be honest. You all saw it coming. Everybody saw it coming, except Toni Storm.” The fans boo but Mariah says that woman is so desperate for the spotlight, she didn’t realize she was giving it all away.

“The question shouldn’t be ‘why,’ the question should be, ‘Mariah, what took you so long?’ Honestly, I didn’t think it would last this long either. But it was so… easy! And I was having so much fun stringing her along, I just wanted to see how far it would go. But then, I saw Wembley. And I thought, ‘Why take the old horse out back when I can kill it in front of as many people as possible?” The fans boo more but Mariah says she’s been Toni Storm, and now she can be so much more! Fans chant “We Want Toni!” and Mariah smirks. Mariah tells Toni not to worry, she still loves her. In fact, she’s never loved her more than when Toni was on her knees, screaming and crying Mariah’s name. “That was your greatest performance.”

As for Mariah’s greatest performance, that will be at All In! The fans boo more but Mariah says now, AEW is All About Mariah! Mariah then lies back on the mat to revel in it just like Toni would. But will Toni make sure Mariah suffers far worse than what she gave Toni?

 

AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

The Bang Bang Gang returned backstage but they’re asked about being stripped of the Unified World Trios Championships. Juice said hold on, they ain’t been stripped of nothing. Whoever wants these belts will have to pry them out of their cold, dead hands! But then Christopher Daniels and a couple refs appear backstage, and the Fallen Angel knows it isn’t the most popular decision, nor is it fair to the champs, but that’s the rules of AEW. Austin says he isn’t taking these belts! Daniels says it’s either that or they’re suspended and they don’t get a chance to fight for them against The Patriarchy.

Colten says fine, take ’em. Take all nine belts! Daniels gathers them up and Austin tells Christian Cage that they are not scared of a guy with a daddy fetish, some TikTok kid, a stepmom straight outta Brazzers, and a giant lizard! Juice says what will happen is The Collision Cowboys come home, and they come home with their little hardware homies! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make sure Captain Charisma and his “sons” never touch the gold? Or can no one stop The Patriarchy from taking over AEW?

The fans boo but The Elite doesn’t care about the win anymore, because they’re looking to hurt Swerve! But wait, here comes The Acclaimed! they brawl with The Bucks! But then Jack Perry shows up to CLOBBER Caster! But then here comes Mark Briscoe! Chicken DECKS Matt, DECKS Jack, and DECKS Nick! Team AEW stands tall together, but Jack comes back for more! Jack whips Briscoe, but he dodges Jack to DIVE onto the Bucks! The fans fire up as Mark goes back for Jack, only to end up in the DRAPING DDT! The Scapegoat fancies himself a Viper, does he? But then HOUSE CALL for Jack Perry!

The AEW World Champion stands tall and Little Rock is thunderous! But then, here comes The Black Hat. Swerve turns around to glare at Hangman as he storms down, glaring at Swerve! The fans are thunderous again, but then Okada trips Swerve up! Okada drags Swerve out, but then Bowens does the same to Hangman! The brawl is going all over the ringside area but it is still 5v4 in favor of The Elite! Security rushes out here to stop this, and The Elite uses the security as their shields! BUT WAIT! Darby Allin is here!! Jack did call him out, so here he comes! Jack looks around, where could he be?

Wait! LOOK UP! Darby drops in from the rafters just like The Icon, Sting! And so now we have 5v5!! The brawl is on again and Little Rock is losing their minds! Security and refs hurry in to stop this, but the security gets thrown aside! Jack is after Darby, Mark helps Darby against him, but then Mark has to fight off Nick! Darby dribbles Jack off the floor! Jack RAMS Darby into railing, Mark returns to help Darby! Security finally separates the factions, which is just fine by The Bucks! But will nothing stop Team AEW from destroying this corrupt Elite once and for all?


My Thoughts:

Now this was an awesome episode of Dynamite. They only advertised three matches, and it turns out that’s all we needed. Ospreay VS MJF was made the opener so they could just go off and give us almost an hour of their best stuff. It kinda makes some PPV matches feel lesser now, but hey, a match of the year candidate is still a match of the year candidate, no matter if it’s TV or PPV. MJF winning out surprised me, but he did cheat so that protects Ospreay. I was hoping for Ospreay VS Pac at All In, but I suppose “The Scumbag VS The Bastard” makes for some fun build. And with how much MJF was taunting Garcia, this has to mean Garcia shows up at All In to go after MJF.

TV Time with Jericho was properly short because we can’t actually drag the show to a screeching halt after how awesome Ospreay VS MJF was. As Jericho started listing qualities like “crazy” and “maniacal,” I just felt Suzuki showing up. Suzuki getting his FTW Championship match with Jericho next week is great, but I’m still thinking Jericho retains. Now, while Keith & Bill are banned from ringside, nothing is stopping Hook from showing up. Hook could go after Jericho after he retains, and that sets up Jericho VS Hook for All In. Which would be interesting because that makes it back to back All In shows for Hook and this FTW Championship.

Good promo from The Bang Bang Gang with Daniels, but like, so filler. Who needed to see them hand over the belts? Or rather, why couldn’t they have figured out to do that during Collision? Very good promo from Mariah May where she completes her transformation into Toni Storm’s replacement. She even phrased it “All About Mariah” to nod how this has been All About Eve the movie, in wrestling form. The fans kept going “What?” just cuz she was taking things slowly, which is rude, but I do feel she could’ve been faster about it. She was definitely going for something with her pacing, but maybe she was also just filling for a little more time. Toni will surely have a response next week or something, though.

Very good promo from Acclaimed with Mark Briscoe and Swerve to establish the Acclaimed joining Team AEW, and very good response promo from The Elite to call them out on it. Though, what a weird detail for Okada to be a Mone simp. He’s married for crying out loud! But that aside, Mone is still tangentially a part of The Elite, and she had a very good match with Nyla tonight. Mone of course found the way to win, but I do appreciate Britt gives us a Sting shoutout by wearing the Sting mask before revealing she was here. Mone running scared was pretty funny, and yeah duh, this match is happening at All In.

In relation, very good promo from Jack Perry, even if poor Brandon had to get beat up again. Jack calling Darby out was good foreshadowing for Darby’s own Sting tribute, and I figured last week that Darby Allin was going to be Team AEW for Blood & Guts. Great main event from Swerve VS Okada that The Bucks of course had to “ruin” to save Okada from a legit loss. At the same time, this keeps either champion from owing the other a title match so close to All In. Great brawl to give us the full 5v5, Blood & Guts is going to be some wild stuff, and it can definitely go either with so many champions involved this time. However, as Mark Briscoe is the only one whose rivalry is NOT in Blood & Guts, he probably takes the loss for Team AEW.

My Score: 9.1/10

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?

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!

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! Ava runs, ducks Nyla’s lariat and wrenches, but Nyla stuffs the STO! Nyla choke grips and CHOKE SLAMS Ava! The fans fire up as Nyla storms around. Ava stands up, Nyla SPLASHES her in the corner!

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

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

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. Cassidy UP KICKS, Bennett comes back to headlock. Cassidy powers out, ducks down then hurdles.

Cassidy arm-drags Bennett but Bennett arm-drags back! Cassidy arm-drags again, then avoids Bennett’s arm-drag! The fans cheer but Taven gets in. Taven waistlocks, Cassidy switches and shoves Taven into Bennett. Cassidy then back drops Taven, and has hands up! Bennett runs up but Cassidy blocks the kick. Cassidy spins Bennett, headlocks, but Bennett powers up and out. Cassidy tags Kyle, dodges Bennett, then puts hands in pockets before bailing. Bennett runs around and Kyle KICKS! And KICKS! 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.

Kyle then gets a leg, to DRAGON SCREW CHAIN The Kingdom! The fans fire up with Kyle, and he runs in to SMASH Bennett! Kyle wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! Bennett ROCKS Kyle, reel shim in, but Kyle back drops and drops down, ARMBAR!

Bennett drags Kyle up, reels him in, but Kyle slips free of the bomb to GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! Bennett endures, Taven hits the KICK OF THE KING!

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
