12 Man Tag: FTR & The Elite VS The Dark Order!

Dynamite is starting off big already! Things were explosive between FTR and The Elite as Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood took offense at Kenny Omega pouring out beer, to then pour beer back on Omega. But it seems Hangman Page won FTR over as drinking buddies and now they’re both ready to take on Mr. Brodie Lee and his legion of minions, and Colt Cabana. Is tonight the night Cabana truly joins Dark Order? Or will it be the team that is “totally all getting along” that wins this 6v6 tag war?

The large teams sort out, and the Exalted One starts with Nick Jackson. They tie up, Brodie shoves Nick to the corner but Nick dodges. Brodie tumbles up and out to deck Nick, but Nick avoids the slingshot senton! Nick goes up and leaps but Brodie gets under. Nick comes back but into Brodie’s pop-up!

Cash hops up to drop an elbow on the arm, then he wrenches and snapmares Nine before tagging in Dax.

Dax stomps the bad arm over and over then drags Nine back up. Dax wrenches, tags in Hangman and Hangman goes up to drop ax handles. Hangman wrenches to tag in Omega and Omega springboard ax handles the arm! Nine’s arm is about to fall off at this point!

There is truly strength in numbers! FTR took themselves out with their own move, and Mr. Brodie took full advantage. Brodie says Hangman should’ve joined them, will it happen in the end? Or will it just be the end of The Elite once and for all?


Best Friends arrive at Daily’s Place.

They borrowed the fan from Trent’s mom again. They made sure to park it somewhere safe for her sake. But will their match with Santana and Ortiz be anything but safe?


AEW hears from Jon Moxley.

“When I was younger, I’m not ashamed to say that I struggled with a lot of demons.” Early in his career, he’d go to the ring like he was wrestling ghosts. The people who cared about him would try to talk him out of stuff. “Don’t fight that guy. Don’t do that death match. Don’t do this or that, cut it out.” But looking back, in some cases, Moxley wishes he’d listened, because he paid the price. But in others, he wouldn’t change a thing. Moxley gets why Darby Allin pointed at the belt. He gets why Darby wants to challenge Moxley for that belt. Moxley understands where he’s coming from and what he’s trying to do.

But in an ironic twist, Moxley is now the advocate, the voice of reason, the person concerned for someone else’s health. Because Moxley knows Darby will come after him again and again and will not stop until he can’t move. It will never cross Darby’s mind even once that last time, Moxley almost broke Darby’s neck. It weighs heavily on Moxley. Moxley doesn’t want his resume to read, “The guy who ended Darby Allin’s bright career,” because Darby is Moxley’s favorite here in AEW. But the title is on the line. When you sign the contract, you make yourself the same as everyone else. Moxley’s gotta do what he’s gotta do. He won’t try to talk Darby out of this, but he does ask Darby please understand, “that when it’s time to stay down, just stay down.” Though, Moxley knows Darby isn’t going to listen, because Moxley wouldn’t. Will Darby stay down?

MJF gives us his contention update.

“AEW faithful, we are currently live at MJF campaign headquarters, and I am so excited to show you where the magic happens.” Wardlow opens the door and MJF walks in, greeted by the applause of his campaign staff. MJF thanks them and calls on “cue ball.” MJF is given his stick of gum, but ugh gross, that is not a good flavor, that man is fired. Moving on, MJF’s team are making and shipping posters and pins all across the world. And… Wait a minute. NINA! Yes, sir? Who hung that poster up? The MJF “We Deserve Better” in black ‘n’ white? It was Lee Johnson, sir. Lee is busy picking out the green M&M’s, by the way.

Oh? It was Lee?! Well, Lee, do you know what “level” means? Yes… Well, Lee, does that poster look level? “I dunno…” You don’t? Maybe if your LEVEL TOOL wasn’t on the ground, he’d know! MJF slaps the level against the poster and asks again: Does it look level? No… Well that aside, MJF asks Nina how they’re doing in the polls. But she needs to smile or not talk at all! Nina smiles big as she says they are leading. The poll shows MJF has 100% of the votes at 51,475,896, and somehow that means Moxley is at a negative 88%. “Epic.” Now, MJF is sure others would be taking a victory lap, but not him. Just because Tony Khan authorized MJF’s match for All Out does not mean they slow down. The campaign is not over until the title is around his waist! Why? Because #WeDeserveBetter. “Yes, we do.”

But what if Darby wins tonight? Oh, that 125 pound emo? That would suck to wrestle him for the title. #Sarcasm. MJF winks as he takes his leave, but what if that scenario does come true? Also, is that poll even real?


Matt Hardy is in the ring.

The crowd cheers as Hardy has a mic. “When I made the decision to come to AEW, it’s because I wanted to come somewhere where I would feel respected. I wanted to wrestle somewhere, work somewhere, where I felt like I had a say in the direction that my career was going to go.” And to be honest, Hardy came here, saw the incredibly talented roster of both men and women, a lot sitting at ringside right now, and Hardy thought about being an attraction. Hardy could introduce the world to the MULTIVERSE of Matt Hardy! A celebration of his career, The Best of Hardy and all his personas. He’s had a blast and so have the fans.

But Hardy listens to his audience, and AEW in general does, too. The majority that is watching Dynamite every single week, they want to see Hardy be Hardy, “the man who is stronger than death!” That is what Hardy will do onscreen. Off-screen, Hardy will continue to give back. There are two guys in particular that remind him of the Hardy Boyz, and that’s Private Party. Those two have passion, athleticism. If they ever need anything, he has their back. Another man he tries to help is Sammy Guevara. Sammy didn’t want his help, which is to get away from Inner Circle to stop being Chris Jericho’s underling. As a matter of fact, the first time Hardy showed up, Sammy snuck out from under the ring and attacked him! So seeing Sammy’s return, Hardy returned the favor!

Sammy gave Hardy the middle finger, so to say, and so Hardy will no longer try to help Sammy. But speaking of that sneak attack, Sammy slides out from under the ring now! Sammy slithers up behind Hardy but Hardy knew he’d come! And they brawl! Sammy powers Hardy to a corner but Hardy still hits back! Hardy whips and clotheslines Sammy out! But Sammy drags Hardy out and they keep brawling! Hardy throws Sammy into the railing! Then over the timekeeper’s table! Hardy drags Sammy back out, scoops him and then slams him through the table! Hardy isn’t done, he brings out a much bigger table over! Hardy sets the table up, drags Sammy over, but Sammy fights back! Sammy denies the Twist of Fate to POST Hardy!

Sammy clubs Hardy onto the table with elbow after elbow, but Hardy hits back! Sammy bumps into a camera man, but tosses a chair at Hardy’s head!! Direct hit! Hardy is in a daze, Sammy clubs him more, then Sammy goes to the stage. Hardy’s head is bleeding onto the wood as Sammy 630 SENTONS through him and table!! Hardy says he cannot die, but has the Spanish God just proven otherwise?!


AEW hears news of something happening backstage!

“You wanna see some real sh*t?!” Proud ‘n’ Powerful found the van! Santana takes a MAD BALL to the windows! Ortiz uses a SLEDGE HAMMER on the headlights! He isn’t trying hard enough, so Santana takes the hammer to SMASH the windshield! Ortiz gets the hammer back to SMASH a rear view mirror and the passenger side windows! Then the rear lights! And the rear windshield! Santana takes the hammer back to finish off the front! “You think we a joke?!” They spray paint the hood with “SUE” and then an X through it! “Tell your moms, we say what’s good.” Will Best Friends get revenge for that? Does Sue at least have insurance?


Cody Rhodes & Matt Cardona VS The Dark Order’s Numbers 3 & 4!

#StrongIsland is #AlwaysReady, and he was ready to back up his old pal in the American Nightmare up against John Silver & Alex Reynolds. Now, the Beaver Boys must take on the AEW TNT Champion and AEW’s newest signee fair and square! Will Cody and Cardona get even with the Numbers?

The teams sort out and Silver starts with Cody. They circle, tie up, and Cody gets a leg. Silver fights the takedown and they end up in a corner. Cody lets up but Silver shoves him. Cody shoves and Silver shoves again, so Cody kicks low and drops down for the uppercut! Silver wobbles into Cody’s suplex, and Cody holds Silver up for a count of 10 before hitting a gourd buster! Cover, TWO, but Cody keeps Silver with a wrench to wristlock. Tag to Cardona and Cody feeds Silver to forearms! Cardona bumps Silver off buckles, pushes him to ropes and whips him across the way. Silver kicks back, runs but into a FLAPJACK! Cover, TWO!

Cardona drags Silver up but Silver fires off kicks! Tag to Reynolds and he suplexes Cardona, only for it to turn into Cardona’s neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! Cardona keeps his cool as he drags Reynolds up and wrenches. Tag to Cody, he climbs up to drop ax handles on the arm. Cody wrenches Reynolds’ arm again, whips but Reynolds reverses. Cody sees Silver’s sucker punch coming so he slides under, onto to clip the post! Silver drags Cody up while Cardona protests and Silver RAMS Cody into the apron! Silver feeds Cody to Reynolds in the ring, but Cody still BOOTS back! Cody punches but Reynolds whips him away. Cody ends up on the apron, elbows Silver away and forearms Reynolds. Silver sweeps the legs and Cody lands hard! Reynolds slingshot stomps Cody down!

Reynolds puts Cody in, tags in Silver, and they drop elbow after elbow on Cody’s ribs! They just keep dropping them until the ref counts on Reynolds. Reynolds bails out, Silver covers, TWO!

A huge debut for the newest addition to the roster! Will Cardona rise up the ranks and become a top player? Woo woo woo, you know it! As for Cody, he spots someone waiting for him at the entryway. It’s Scorpio Sky! As of last night’s AEW Dark, Scorpio put management and champions on notice. Scorpio stares Cody down, eyes the AEW TNT Championship, and taps it. Will the American Nightmare give Scorpio his shot to #ReachForTheSky?


Best Friends return to the van!

It seems there was even more graffiti added to it, with “THE BEST” and a few other things sprayed on the side. And now it’s on cinder blocks because the tires were taken! Chuck says “Not only did you destroy my friend’s mom’s van, but you made a liar out of me.” Chuck promised Mama Sue that he would take care of the van and keep it safe. Trent says PNP can do whatever they want to him and Chuck. Throw chairs, hit them with those socks, whatever. “But you do NOT touch my mom’s van! You cowards!” If they wanted a rematch, just ask. Best Friends did it once, they’ll gladly do it again. And when it happens, PNP will personally apologize to Trent’s mom via speakerphone. Will the van be avenged?


Sammy Guevara returns to ringside!

The Spanish God already devastated Matt Hardy, but now he’s got his cue cards back! That’s because he knows AEW is going picture in picture! “Hey, Orange! Like Matt Hardy VS The Inner Circle…” Sammy mocks all the blood spouting from Hardy’s head. “You’re going to LOSE!” Loser~! “Not only… is the Demo God,” Chris Jericho, “a master in the ring! He’s master on the mic, master on the stage, he’s a master entertainer, and he’s a master debater!” Umm… No! Nevermind that one! Just tear that one up and… #InnerCircle #AEWDynamite #SpanishGod as AEW goes to break.


AEW returns to Super Wednesday Debate 2020!

Justin Roberts introduces us to this major event and we even get a lot of pyro. He introduces the very special guest  moderator… ERIC BISCHOFF!!! Really!? Yes! The iconic WCW and WWE general manager is now on AEW! The “groundbreaking pro-wrestling executive” takes his seat at the table and prepares his notes. “Thank you very much, and welcome to the AEW Super Wednesday Debate, 2020!” Bischoff explains the simple format: there are five questions put together through the various platforms of social media, all picked at random. Neither Mr. Orange Cassidy nor Mr. Chris Jericho have seen these questions. Without further ado, he introduces our participants!

First out is Freshly Squeezed, Orange Cassidy! Cassidy shakes Bischoff’s hand with his signature super sloth effort. And of course, second is Le Champion, Chris Jericho! Jericho has a new suit, but has Jake Hager carry the orange juice stained old one with him anyway. Both men take their podiums in the ring, and Bischoff allows Jericho to begin.

“Why does Chris Jericho and Orange Cassidy hate each other so much?

Jericho says that’s easy. First he verbally annihilates Cassidy, Jericho wants to say he’s so glad Cassidy “dressed for the occasion.” This is disgraceful! Cassidy sighs, and brings out a clip-on tie! This is what Jericho hates about Cassidy. No, that might not be strong enough. Jericho despises the fact Cassidy doesn’t take anything seriously. Jericho despises who Cassidy is, who Cassidy stands for, and despise the millions of morons who follow Cassidy as if he’s the greatest thing in pro-wrestling history when he’s not. As a matter of fact, people laugh at him behind his back. Cassidy is a joke! Critics, historians, experts all laugh at what Cassidy does and so does Jericho. Cassidy is a nothing, nobody flash in the pan, “Ginger jackass who plays pocket pool on a weekly basis,” and that ends Jericho’s statement.

Bischoff is rather looking forward to Cassidy’s response. Cassidy’s response is…? Jericho says Cassidy doesn’t talk because he has nothing to say. Well, in that case, let’s move on to the second question.

“Who is the better wrestler? And who is the bigger star?”

Another easy one! Don’t be stupid! This is Chris Jericho, man! Le Champion! The Demo God! Jericho has held 50 titles around the world, while Cassidy has barely been out of the state of Florida. The only title Cassidy has is Biggest Slacker in his high school yearbooks! And if they went to school together, Jericho would’ve chased Cassidy down the halls, kicked his ass in front of the lockers, give him wedgies, steal his milk money and his girlfriend. “You’re a nerd.” Jericho is in a $10,000 suit, looking like a million bucks. Cassidy is in a filthy denim jacket and smells like old salami, Drakkar Noir and batteries. Cassidy makes Jericho sick! That’s all for Jericho.

Cassidy’s response? Just adjusting his glasses. Well then… The next question is one Bischoff feels might resonate with Cassidy.

“Global sea levels have been rising over the past century, the rate has increased in recent decades. What are your thoughts on this very serious global situation?”

What is a global warming/climate change question doing in a debate about wrestling?! Next question, please! Well, Jericho skipped it, but does Cassidy have something to say? “Ahem…” He does?! “Sea levels continue to rise at about the rate of 1/8 of an inch per year. Higher sea levels enables storms to push further inland and therefore increase the extremely dangerous flooding in coastal communities. A failure to minimize our fossil fuel usage and reduction of carbon emissions can be devastating to the estimated 40% of the population in the United States that lives in these coastal communities, and globally, eight of the world’s ten largest cities. Thank you.” What?! Wow! Now it’s a debate!

“Why is Orange Cassidy so popular?”

Why? Jericho says Cassidy is the epitome of everything wrong in pro-wrestling today! He’s the epitome of every idiot, smart mark fan in the arenas tonight and watching at home! He’s lazy, arrogant, entitled, overbearing and the “pimple on the ass of the pro-wrestling business.” But next week, Jericho will pop him! Jericho will beat Cassidy again, and when he does, Cassidy will have to pay $7000 to replace the designer creation that somehow gets oranger every week from that demonic orange juice Cassidy dumped on it! And after all that, Cassidy will leave AEW, quit the business, and go back to being “Jim the Jamba Juice guy,” and take Jericho’s order of a blueberry smoothie with extra protein and pumpkin seeds! And no tip!

Jericho high-fives Hager but what is Cassidy’s response to all that? He just looks away. Last question!

“Why does this rematch mean so much to both of you?”

The reason it means so much to Jericho- “Heeeeey, Chriiis. Shut up!” Cassidy goes first it seems. “Shut up.” Cassidy knows what Jericho is doing. Jericho schedules a debate against a guy “who doesn’t talk.” Smart, but it’s mostly to embarrass him. Yep. Trying to embarrass him with all of this? Cassidy isn’t embarrassed. Because he doesn’t care. Cassidy does care about their rematch, though. It’s the biggest match of his life. But it’s also the biggest match of Jericho’s. Just imagine. You’re Chris Jericho, man. Jericho’s done it all the things that fans can google later. But right now, what if Jericho loses to “the guy that puts his hands in his pockets?”

Cassidy takes the sunglasses off to show Jericho he is serious! “I want you to look at me, Chris. I want you to look into my eyes, and look at the man that is going to embarrass you. And next week, look at the man that is going to beat you!” The crowd is on Cassidy’s side as Jericho looks worried. Bischoff has no choice but to declare Cassidy the winner! Jericho is furious but Cassidy gives a thumbs up. Bischoff apologizes, that global warming stuff got him. No one wins a debate, Bischoff! This is why Jericho hasn’t liked you in 22 years! It’s been 24 years and the feeling’s mutual. Well whatever, Cassidy “won” this debate but Jericho is gonna “kick the sh*t” out of him in the ring! Maybe Jericho will do that right now! And Hager attacks!

Hager drags Cassidy back up to throw hands in the corner! Hager keeps Cassidy standing up, slaps him, then puts his hands in his pockets. Then he feeds Cassidy to JUDAS EFFECT! Best Friends rush out but Jericho and Hager get away. Can Cassidy recover and get his revenge? Or is it just the beginning of the end for Freshly Squeezed?


AEW returns with an interview with Britt Baker.

Last week, the Role Model gave Big Swole a challenge. Swole can get her match with Britt Baker at All Out, if Swole defeats someone of Britt’s choosing. So who does Britt have in mind? Well everyone’s dying to know. After careful consideration, Swole’s opponent is… Reba. Wait what?! Reba/Rebel doesn’t want that! Britt trusts Reba can do this. Just get in the ring! Rebel gets in, but can the former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader really beat a trained and seasoned professional wrestler?

Big Swole VS Rebel w/ Britt Baker!

The bell rings and Britt says Reba’s got this. But Swole waistlocks, headlocks and throws Rebel down with the takeover. Swole dares Rebel to do something, Rebel manages to get up and powers out to a hammerlock. Swole turns that right back on her, then CLUBS her down! Britt shouts at Swole but Swole talks trash back. Rebel clubs Swole from behind! And bumps her off buckles! Rebel air high-fives Britt before bumping Swole off more buckles. Rebel brings Swole out to suplex and TOSS! Rebel might be surprising herself right now! She runs corner to corner to back heel kick Swole down! Rebel dribbles Swole into the mat, then sets her up in the drop zone. Britt coaches her to go all the way up, but Rebel wobbles. Rebel goes for second rope, to MOONSAULT and flop! Still great form, though.

Swole aims at Rebel with the DIRTY DANCING DISCUS! Cover, Swole wins!

Winner: Big Swole, by pinfall

Was there any question, though? And now, Swole has her date with Britt at All Out! Will the Role Model find a way to get out of this? Or will she finally have to put her money where her mouth is?


AEW has big matches made for next week!

After the stare down on the stage, the American Nightmare is giving Scorpio Sky his chance! It will be Cody VS Scorpio for the AEW TNT Championship! Jericho and Cassidy have their “$7000 obligation match” to settle things once and for all! And FTR’s #TagTeamAppreciationNight will of course feature great tag team matches! First, the AEW World Tag Team Champions, Kenny Omega & Hangman Page, taking on Jurassic Express’ Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus in non-title action! Can the #5 ranked team make a huge splash against the champs? Then, the Young Bucks and the Dark Order’s Uno & Stu go 2v2 to see who moves up the ranks! Plus, the legendary Rock ‘n’ Roll Express will stop buy, and even Tully Blanchard and Arn Anderson will have a reunion of sorts. That and more as Dynamite keeps the summer hot!


AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley VS Darby Allin!

If there’s anyone as truly reckless and relentless as The Maniac, it’s the Undead Daredevil. They’ve teamed together and fought each other before, but both men have only grown grittier since then. Will Darby take that advice from someone who has been there and done that? Or will Moxley have no choice but to put his personal favorite down for the count?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and Moxley says a quick prayer for what he might have to do tonight.

Moxley circles with Darby, who hasn’t taken off the cardboard mask of Moxley’s face. Moxley rips it off then throws it away! Darby SLAPS Moxley! Moxley DECKS Darby! Darby is already bleeding but he seems to like that. Darby throws off the jacket and dares Moxley to do that again. Moxley kicks low, whips but Darby ducks and redirects to handspring and SLAP Mox again! Moxley LARIATS Darby inside out! Moxley brings Darby up to CHOP him off his feet! Darby growls but Moxley puts him in a corner. Moxley digs his forearms in, then CHOPS again! Darby is stinging but Moxley puts him in another corner to ram his shoulder in. Moxley TOSSES Darby across the way, then grabs the legs to stomp the stomach!

Moxley paces as Darby writhes. Moxley drags Darby up, scoops Darby and slams him down, to then drop an elbow! Cover, TWO, but Moxley keeps his cool. In fact, Moxley is conflicted. Moxley drags Darby back up, back suplexes, but Darby lands on his feet. Darby whips, Moxley reverses but Darby springboards and arm-drags Moxley away! Moxley staggers up into a shotgun dropkick! Moxley goes to the ramp, Darby DIVES to less tope and more tackle Moxley down! Darby rains right hands on the ramp but Moxley gets away. They go to the stage, Darby clubs away to the entryway. Moxley knees back, clubs Darby down, then shakes his head. Moxley drags Darby up, and TOSSES Darby at the post! Darby goes down in a heap!! The referee checks on Darby while Moxley paces. AEW goes picture in picture, #ALLINvsMOX.

Moxley goes back to the ring, looks down at Darby and asks if he really is alright. The ref starts a ring count so Darby must somehow be alright. Moxley doesn’t really like that but he goes over to talk to Darby. Darby crawls up so Moxley puts him in the ring. Cover, TWO! Moxley already senses Darby didn’t listen, so he puts Darby in a straitjacket stretch. Darby endures as Moxley seems to try and reason with him. Darby fights up, spins out, but Moxley clobbers him! Moxley paces again before bringing Darby up. Moxley rocks Darby with haymakers but Darby CHOPS back! And CHOPS again! And again! Moxley CHOPS Darby off his feet again!

Moxley drags Darby up, but Darby dropkicks back! Darby dodges and dropkicks again, only to get caught! Moxley has the one leg for a modified Half Crab! Darby endures as Moxley sits deep and digs a knee into the back. Darby crawls, the crowd rallies up, but Moxley drops down for an STF! Darby endures the new hold, Moxley digs his fingers in, and AEW returns to single picture. Darby gives Moxley double dirty birds and Moxley just bends on back! Moxley drags Darby up, and X-PLEXES him down! Moxley is again torn as Darby keeps moving. Darby rolls to the ramp, Moxley follows and tells him, “When I tell you to tap, you tap!” But Darby hotshots Moxley instead! Moxley sputters, Darby runs, and TACKLES Moxley to the outside!

Darby rains down rights on Moxley, clearly defying Moxley’s advice. Moxley gets up, Darby DIVES again! The full body tope takes them back to the railing! Darby drags Moxley up but Moxley puts him in. Moxley gets on the apron but Darby shotgun dropkicks him again! Darby goes to the corner, brings Moxley over and puts the hand on the post! Darby stands on that hand! The ref counts, Moxley gets away, but Darby SUPER SWANTONS onto him!! Both men are down again and the crowd says “This is Awesome!” Darby puts Moxley back in as the ring count hits 4. Darby runs, springboards, but the Coffin Drop is caught for a GERMAN SUPLEX! But Darby lands on his feet!

Darby throws fast hands, only to run into underhooks! But Darby bends the fingers, dropkicks the legs out, and hosp on for CODE RED!! Cover, TWO!! Moxley survives and Darby realizes how close he was! A standing count begins as both men stir. Darby crawls to a corner and stands up at 6. Moxley springs up as Darby climbs to club him down! Moxley SUPER GERMANS, and Darby manages to rotate enough to save himself! But both men are still down, and Moxley shouts, “You wanted this!” Both men crawl at each other, but here comes Wardlow?! Wardlow distracts the ref so MJF can bring in the AEW World Championship belt!! MJF CLOBBERS Moxley with it, then bails out! Wardlow stops distracting the ref, and the ref wonders what just happened.

Darby rises and hurries to a corner! He goes up top, COFFIN DROP!! Cover, TWO!?! MJF’s screw job didn’t work out, but Moxley is bleeding! Taz loves this on commentary because of his issues on behalf of Brian Cage. Darby seethes as Moxley flounders. Moxley manages to stand, Darby throws haymakers on the wound! Moxley shoves Darby away but walks into boots! Darby leaps up and over to shotgun dropkick Moxley back! Then the THROWBACK STUNNER! Moxley wobbles into Darby’s run, and perhaps back elbow and back of the head collide with Moxley! Darby crawls over to another corner, heads back up top, and goes for COFFIN DROP into body scissors! REAR NAKED CHOKE!!

Moxley smothers Darby, Darby fades but gets a second wind! Darby sits up, reaches for ropes, Moxley wants Darby to tap! “Tap, you little bastard!” But Darby doesn’t, he just rakes Moxley’s bloody forehead!! Moxley cranks harder on the hold, spins Darby around, and shouts out Suzuki-san with the GOTCH PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!?!? Moxley cannot believe it and neither can anyone else! Moxley shakes his head. He told Darby to stay down but also knew Darby wouldn’t listen, and that’s what happened. Moxley says one more prayer, drags Darby up, and underhooks the arms, for PARADIGM SHIFT!! Cover, Moxley wins!

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

Moxley holds Darby close, trying to let him know it’s alright. As for MJF, he’s disappointed things didn’t swing in his favor, even after he got involved. MJF shouts and screams though we can’t hear it, then storms off to who knows where. Moxley and MJF will collide at All Out, will Moxley prove the polls wrong?

My Thoughts:

An incredible episode for AEW! The 12 Man Tag starting things off was some wild stuff from bell to bell. I really liked the “knee injury” element that took FTR out of things, and the fact Hangman was gone for so long hints even more at him leaving Omega and The Elite to join up with them in whatever AEW Four Horsemen idea that’s in the works. I really thought Hangman’s return meant The Elite would win but it works even better that Dark Order wins. That faction is big and needs to feel strong for that reason, and Cabana started to feed into it more. Cabana should at this point really have gear that is still his designs, like the “BOOM BOOM,” but in Dark Order colors. Of course, Dark Order can’t win everything just yet, and Matt Cardona gets to look great in his debut match with a win.

I also really liked Scorpio Sky being there to make it known he wants a shot, and that Cody is giving it to him. Now, I don’t know if Scorpio wins, as convention would make you think a PPV is the place for that. But for that reason, Scorpio should definitely win it off Cody here. I feel it’d get a lot of buzz, Scorpio has been working really hard and doing amazing, he deserves to be not only the second ever TNT Champion, but the first to have checked off it and tag titles in the AEW Triple Crown bingo. Best Friends have a really good match with Proud ‘n’ Powerful, but as soon as that van pulled up, it was clear it was going to get ruined. It’s actually very on brand for Best Friends to escalate a feud because someone’s mom’s van got vandalized, and I know that rematch will be great.

The “Super Wednesday” debate segment was a goofy idea that was actually very good. I did not expect Eric Bischoff to moderate it but he did pretty good for his part. Jericho was great as always, and I knew as soon as a global warming related question came up, Cassidy would have a bunch to say, it was classic comedic genius. Cassidy also does a great promo right on Jericho, and of course there was going to be a beat down. Cassidy just has to win the match, everything points to that. Sammy and Matt Hardy had quite the segment, and WOW the blood after that admittedly reckless chair toss to the head. I’m sure Hardy will be fine, and he will come back with a vengeance. Hardy saying he’ll be normal Matt Hardy is probably a ruse, this has to be settled between Sammy and DAMASCUS~!

Britt choosing Rebel to face Swole was both natural, as no one else would care to do Britt’s bidding, but also disappointing because then it was obvious. I will say, Rebel really did impress on that moonsault and flop. Swole VS Britt is happening, it’s going to be a lot of fun, and could go either way. MJF’s campaign update was a good segment, and I feel like it’s also a good way to bring more people into MJF’s stable since it’s just him and Wardlow. Though, Wardlow is pretty capable. Lee Johnson has just been getting manhandled so maybe siding with MJF and Wardlow could change that ever so slightly.

The main event was incredible, probably thanks to MJF trying to screw Moxley over, all because he feels it’d be easier to beat Darby. I felt that at that point, the title could’ve changed hands just so Darby could actually prove MJF wrong, but Mox VS MJF is certainly a bigger match. Plus, Darby could even go after MJF for revenge, though he also still has his issues with Brian Cage. AEW likes blending and interweaving stories, so Darby having many bullies he wants revenge on would work.

My Score: 9.3/10

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed.

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

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

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


Rush VS Cody Chhun!

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

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

Winner: Rush, by pinfall

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

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


Lexy Nair is outside the trainer’s room.

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

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


Deonna Purrazzo VS Robyn Renegade!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by submission

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

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


Scorpio Sky speaks.

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


Backstage interview with Sonjay Dutt.

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

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


PROGRAMMING NOTE for Rampage next week!

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


Brian Cage VS Anthony Bowens w/ The Acclaimed!

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

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

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

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

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

Bowens writhes, Cage goes back out to drag him up, and RAMS him into barriers! Cage brings Bowens around, SMACKS him off the apron, then drags him up again. Cage whips Bowens hard into steel steps! Bowens falls over in a heap, Cage flexes, then Cage refreshes the ring count. Cage drags Bowens up but Bowens pushes him away. Cage BOOTS Bowens down, then brings him up for an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Cage gloats some more, steps into the ring, and storms up on Bowens. Bowens kicks low, throws hands, but Cage JUMP KNEES! Cage digs his boots into Bowens at the ropes, lets off, and Bowens sputters.

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

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

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.6/10

Will Ospreay VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

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

But before things get going, here comes The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy, Taven & Bennett walk on out, clearly not leaving things at the face to face on Wednesday. Roddy joins commentary, the bell rings and Ospreay runs up to SHOTGUN Shane! The fans fire up while Shane bails out! Ospreay aims and PLANCHAS! Down goes Shane and the fans fire up with Ospreay!

Ospreay writhes, Shane shoves him to a cover, TWO! Ogogo says it’s that close. Shane talks trash on the fans, then drags Ospreay up. Shane ROCKS Ospreay, Ospreay goes to a corner, and Shane storms up to HEADBUTT him!

Shane BODY BLOWS Ospreay and Ospreay staggers away. Shane talks Ospreay, ROCKS him again, and Ospreay drops to his knees. Shane drags Ospreay back up, to JAB! JAB! And JABS! Ospreay drops to his knees again, but Shane brings him right back up for a BEARHUG! Ospreay endures the squeeze as Collision returns to single picture.

Shane CHOPS again, Ospreay staggers away, and Shane whips. Ospreay handsprings to NEURALIZER KICK! Roddy says so much talent, but Ospreay is still an idiot child fraud! The fans rally up for Ospreay, Ospreay kips up, and he runs up to BOOT in the corner! Ospreay shoves Shane away, goes up top, and BLINDSIDE CHEERIO! Cover, TWO! Shane is tough but Ospreay loads up the arm! The fans fire up as Ospreay aims, Ospreay runs in, but into a KNEE! Ospreay swings, Shane bobs ‘n’ weaves, and then HEADBUTTS! Ospreay wobbles, Shane reels him in, URENAGE! Shane SPLASHES down! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and Shane is shocked!

The fans fire up as Shane huffs and puffs. Shane brings Ospreay back up, scoops, but Ospreay fights around to Electric Chair and spin! But Shane blocks the rana to POWERBOMB!

Shane is losing his cool while The Kingdom is losing their minds! Shane tucks Ospreay, lifts, but Ospreay slips free! Ospreay BOOTS, “This is Awesome!” as Ospreay goes up. Shane ROCKS Ospreay first, then climbs up. But Ospreay slips out to tuck Shane in! CHEEKY NANDOS! And AGAIN! Ospreay fires up, THIRD CHEEKY NANDOS! Then Ospreay uses the corner to help with the Canadian Rack! STORM BREAKER!! Cover, Ospreay wins!!

Winner: Will Ospreay, by pinfall

The Kingdom is in shock seeing the BIGGEST Stormbreaker ever! Ospreay glares at Roddy as Roddy steps to the apron. But The Kingdom flanks the ring, get in and mug Ospreay! The fans boo as Bennett & Taven beat Ospreay down! They double whip, but Ospreay holds ropes! Ospreay then DUMPS both Taven & Bennett out, BOOTS Roddy off the apron, then FLIES to take out Taven & Bennett! The #BillyGOAT gets away clean, will he be able to take The Kingdom down and bring the International Championship home to The Don Callis Family?


Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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


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

The first-ever AEW “Summer Series” is heading to the Arlington ESports Stadium, and will be based there for six whole weeks! Collision on Saturday, July 20th, ROH Death Before Dishonor on Friday, July 26th, Collision on July 27th, Collision on Thursday, August 1st, then Saturday, August 10th AND Saturday, August 17th! Make sure you get your tickets starting in June so you can be part of this inaugural event!


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

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

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


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

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

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

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

The ref reprimands Taya for being on the apron, but Hook turns around into a FLYING CHUCK! Johnny goes to the corner, climbs up, STARSHIP PAIN FLOPS as Hook moves! Hook is mad now, and he clamps on for REDRUM!! Johnny fights but Hook has the hooks in! Johnny TAPS, Hook wins!

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

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

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

FTW Contender Series: Kastuyori Shibata VS Rocky Romero!

The bell rings, the two shake hands, and the fans cheer. Shibata and Rocky circle, the fans rally up, and the two feel things out. They knuckle lock, Shibata gets around to waistlock, but Rocky switches. Shibata switches, Rocky goes for a leg, but Shibata waistlocks again. Rocky wrenches out to a wristlock but Shibata spins and wrenches back. Rocky rolls but Shibata wrangles him! Shibata double wristlocks, but Rocky powers Shibata to ropes. Shibata still holds onto the wristlock as Rocky tries to whip. The fans rally, Rocky throws knees and powers out this time. Shibata stops himself to stomp Rocky on the back!

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

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

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

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

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

The fans fire up, Rocky drags Shibata to a cover, TWO! Rocky frowns but stays focused as he brings Shibata up. Rocky cravats, Shibata pushes out of Sliced Bread! Rocky’s leg jams, Shibata CLOBBERS him! Shibata comes back, leg scissor takedown into the HEEL HOOK!! Rocky flails, reaches out, but Shibata keeps him back! Rocky crawls his way over, reaches out, ROPEBREAK! The fans are torn as Shibata lets Rocky go. Shibata stomps Rocky, drags him up, and fires off forearms. Shibata UPPERCUTS, then stomps Rocky down. Shibata goes corner to corner, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! The fans fire up but Shibata’s not done!

Rocky endures, flails, but he’s at center! Rocky TAPS, Shibata wins!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Backstage interview with Pac.

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

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


Bullet Club Gold is here!

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


The Patriarchy speaks.

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


Orange Cassidy VS Isiah Kassidy!

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

Garcia JAMS Archer, DECKS Vinnie, then hits a SAIDO on Dutch!! Garcia runs up to clothesline Dutch up and out! The fans fire up as Garcia runs off Vinnie and Archer, too! But was the save a little too late with FTR suffering the worst of it? Are The Elite going to make sure there’s no one to even be on Team AEW?

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
