Proud ‘n’ Powerful VS Ryzin & Faboo Andre!

Santana and Ortiz are getting ready to tear into Chuck Taylor and Trent, and they’re going to have a tune-up first. Will the Priest of Sin and the Monarch of Manliness merely be appetizers for the Inner Circle’s pitbulls?

Just that easy! Ortiz is not even hyped up, he is deadly serious! Will Best Friends be facing a very different Proud ‘n’ Powerful Santana and Ortiz in that grudge match?

Santana gets a mic to say, “Papi, I gotta laugh.” You know why? Because Best Friends finally grew balls big enough to catch them slipping. But Santana and Ortiz like that fight! It’ll only feel that much better when they send them crying home to mom like little b*tches! Ortiz says Trent needs to tell Sue to stop blowin’ up his phone, because he’s not coming for dinner. But those drawers he left? That’s a little gift from him to her. Some serious fighting words, and Ortiz again shouts, “THE BEST!” Will Best Friends get back at Santana and Ortiz for all they’ve done and said?

 

Allie w/ QT Marshall VS Cassandra Golden!

The Nightmare Sisters may not have won the Women’s Tag Cup, and both Cody and Brandi Rhodes may have been sidelined by the Dark Order, but the Nightmare Family soldiers on. Will Allie carry on and also start her own climb up the ranks?

They brawl, bounce off railing and the trailers themselves, but where is security?! What will it take for these two teams to settle this?

 

Frankie Kazarian VS Angelico!

The Heavy Metal Rebel has been giving singles matches a go and has been doing pretty well. Now he goes against one half of The Hybrid2, with the mouthier half in Jack Evans oddly absent. Will Angelico prove he can do things on his own? Or will Kaz pull off another win of his own?

Winner: Frankie Kazarian, by pinfall

Kaz snatches victory from the jaws of defeat and keeps on rolling! Will Kaz keep going strong even as he does it alone?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Brandi Rhodes!

Brandi returns after that attack by the Dark Order, and slips a “Lil’ Brand-Brand” into Tony’s shirt pocket. It was 8/22/20, the very special Saturday Night Dynamite, that the Women’s Tag Cup Finals were held, and the Nightmare Sisters lost to Ivelisse and Diamante to only be runner-up in the tournament. That tournament felt like it was designed for Allie and Brandi to win, but they didn’t. And then of course, the attack on Cody and Brandi by the Dark Order so it’s been a bit since we’ve heard from her. Brandi tells “Anthony” that most people would be very upset that they lost a tournament they had a hand in creating. But she’s not most people.

However, she is “quite perturbed” that a trainee from the Nightmare Factory listened to “Daddy Brodie” and attacked Brandi in an ambush. Brandi has a problem with Anna Jay. Maybe “Daddy Brodie” told Anna that being young and pretty and talented meant the world owed her something. Guess what: Brandi’s been pretty a long time, and it don’t mean s*it anymore. What matters is being smart. And Brandi doesn’t have much faith in Anna’s IQ when she joined “a goon squad” that needs Brodie Lee to tell them what to do and to think all the time.

But Anna is bold. She went right for the top of the food chain. But when you take aim at the queen, you better not miss. Here’s Brandi, walking, talking and confident as ever. Brandi invites Anna to play, but face to face this time. Anna better be prepared, because if she misses this time, Brandi will send Anna’s “pretty little ass” right back to the factory.

 

Gunn Club VS Ryan Rembrandt & Donnie Primetime!

Billy and son, Austin, have been doing pretty well for themselves. But now they’re up against a #Remarkable and action ready duo. Will Gunn Club keep hitting the mark and climbing the ranks of the AEW Tag Division?

The teams sort out and Rembrandt starts with Billy. They circle, the crowd rallies and Billy ties up with Rembrandt. Billy wrenches to a hammerlock, then headlocks to a takeover. Billy gets Rembrandt’s shoulders down for a cover, ONE! He does it again, ONE! Rembrandt sits up and fights up. Austin tags in, he and Billy mug Rembrandt, then Austin wrenches. Rembrandt rocks Austin, Austin puts Rembrandt in a corner and whips him corner to corner. Rembrandt reverses but Austin goes up and over to roll Rembrandt. Rembrandt gets up but Austin dropkicks his legs out! Cover, TWO! Austin keeps his eyes on Donnie and tags in Billy. Gunn Club works together, catapult to flying elbow drop! Cover, TWO!!

Rembrandt survives that brutal double team move, but Billy is still on him. Billy decks Rembrandt and admits his hand hurts. Billy drags Rembrandt up, tags Austin in and the Gunn Club mugs Rembrandt. Austin wrenches but Rembrandt knees low. Rembrandt snapmares, drops an elbow and then another! And another! Cover, ONE, but Rembrandt shows off the muscles. Rembrandt rams Austin into the corner, Donnie tags in and Donnie clubs Austin. Austin throws haymakers and runs but Donnie CHOPS him! Cover, ONE! Donnie punches Austin to a corner and ROCKS him with an uppercut! Donnie taunts Billy but Austin hits Rembrandt away! Austin runs and elbows Donnie down, hot tag to Billy!

Abadon puts the bad leg on the ropes and pulls on it! The ref counts, Abadon stops at 4 and stomps the bad leg again. Abadon stands Dani up to whip corner to corner, and Dani falls over as the bad leg gives out. Abadon mocks Dani then grabs the leg again. Dani uses the good leg to kick her away, and she manages to LARIAT Abadon down! But Abadon sits up! Abadon stares at Dani, they both get up, and Abadon trips Dani up to DDT the leg!

Abadon applauds her own work as she goes after the leg again. ANOTHER leg DDT! Dani crawls to the ropes but Abadon clearly has a method to her madness. Abadon slips out and goes around the corner. Dani is on the apron, Abadon trips her up! Dani hits hard on the apron while Abadon argues with the ref. Well, she really more just shouts at the ref.

Will the Initiative ever roll a victory at this rate? Avalon ATTACKS Cutler! The Initiative is breaking up as Avalon grabs the giant 20-sided die. Avalon CLOBBERS Cutler with it!! Leva can’t believe this! Will Avalon go on to find that first win all on his own?


My Thoughts:

A pretty good Dark, but again par for the course. The obvious wins were obvious but there were still some really fun stuff. I like that Donnie went by “Donnie Primetime” instead of Donnie Janela, but obviously he couldn’t just change his gimmick last minute to not be Bootleg Janela. Gunn Club’s match was probably the match where commentary had the most fun because Excalibur, who is back by the way, tricked Taz into thinking there was such a group as the Gum Club. I liked the promo from Santana and Ortiz, and the brawl with Best Friends. I was kinda hoping the grudge match for Dynamite would be No Disqualifications, but it’ll still be great stuff from these two teams.

Brandi has a good promo on Anna, and Anna has a good match with Red Velvet to show that while Anna is still learning, she’s also got aggression enough to win. Anna and Brandi will have a pretty good match, it definitely will up the story between Dark Order and the Nightmare Family. Nightmare Sisters didn’t face Jay & Tay during the Women’s Tag Cup, so I bet Taynara Conti will #JoinDarkOrder and we get a women’s tag match as part of this story. Abadon got to show a little cocky personality as she beat Dani Jordyn but still kept her scary persona going. I’m pretty sure Hikaru Shida wins at All Out despite how great Thunder Rosa is, so maybe Abadon moves up to challenge Shida after.

I like that Sabian is salty about going back to beating jobbers after his loss to Kaz. I’m sure he’ll continue for a couple more weeks beating jobbers, get another match with another “name,” then maybe he wins that match and feels he should face a champion. I liked that Private Party and The Initiative were in the main event, and it was a great match, but it seems AEW has pulled the trigger on the break-up. Now give us Avalon VS Cutler in the All Out Buy-In so we finally get AEW’s Worst Wrestler, unofficial title belt and all.

My Score: 8.2/10

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

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

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

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

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

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

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

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

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

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

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

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

 

Thunder Rosa VS Rachael Ellering!

We heard the Virtuosa speak her mind, but La Mera Mera looks to show, not tell. Will Rosa be more than ready to go another round with Deonna? Or will the Queen of Strong Smile make some bold moves of her own?

Then she DECKS Rachael for the hell of it before going after Rosa! Rachael drags Deonna off of Rosa, so Deonna BOOTS her down! The fans boo but Deonna BOOTS Rosa down!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.8/10
