AEW checks in with MJF.

“This Saturday at All Out, there’s only going to be one possible ending, and that is with me becoming your AEW World-” Lee Johnson interrupts and MJF is upset. Lee says Mark locked himself in the room. What? Mark- He heard you the first time! Just move. MJF knocks on the door and asks if Mark is alright. Mark wants MJF to understand, he needs some time to get a way out of this situation. Wardlow kicks the door down to drag Mark out. MJF tells Wardlow to stand down, it’s alright. MJF gets in Mark’s face as he explains that ever since he was a kid, MJF has wanted to be a world champion. He has done absolutely whatever it takes to get to this position.

MJF understands Mark is afraid of big scary Jon Moxley, but MJF makes something clear: “There’s nothing scarier than being in the position of getting in front and in the way of my goals.” When Men get in MJF’s way, bad things happen to them. So Mark has two options: one, Mark gets in the ring with Moxley; two, YOU END UP IN A DAMN WOOD CHIPPER!! So the choice is Mark’s. Which monster is he dealing with tonight?

 

8 Man Tag: Private Party & SoCal Uncensored VS Jurassic Express & The Young Bucks!

A rather unique prize is on the line! The quartet that wins gets to be part of All Out, but will then face each other 2v2!

Quen clubs on Matt, whips but Matt reverses. Kassidy tags in as Quen goes up and headscissors Matt, and Kassidy gamangiris Matt back! Kassidy springboards to huricanrana Matt out of the ring!

Winners: Jurassic Express & The Young Bucks, by pinfall (advance to All Out)

Now the Bucks will face Luchasaurus and Jungle Boy, part of why they don’t stick around to celebrate. Will there be a Superkick Party at All Out that derails the Jurassic Express?

 

AEW Media catches up with Jake Hager.

Big Hurt goes in and finds Orange Cassidy? Hager sits with Cassidy, they look at each other, then around. “Jericho wants you ringside for his match tonight.” Cassidy’s response is to move his leg out from under Hager, and onto Hager’s leg. Hager slaps the leg off and tells Cassidy it’d be smart to be there. Will Cassidy watch Le Champion take on the Bad Boy before all Mimosa Mayhem breaks loose?

 

AEW returns to Tully Blanchard and FTR.

Tully tells Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood that when he stood between them and said “This is what you have to do,” win the gauntlet and get the title match, it’d be back to the contender’s race. But they won, they’re going to All Out. Now the prize is in front of them, and they have to take it. They’re not going to give the gold and the prestige away, FTR needs to take it, and they’re the two that can do it. Tully will be in their corner watching the whole time. Cash says that Saturday, the AEW Tag Team Championship match is the most important match of FTR’s career. Everything they’ve ever said, done and worked for means nothing without those titles!

Dax says this match’s outcome is a 7 figure difference in their incomes, and as much as they respect Hangman, they like the prestige and honor just a little more. Sunday, they can be sore all they want, but Saturday, “You will #FearTheRevelation.” Their names are going in the record books. “Top guys, out.”

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Kenny Omega in the ring!

The other half of the AEW Tag Team Champions is here without Hangman, wearing a “We Love Hana Kimura” shirt. You buy one of those on ProWrestlingTees and the profits go directly to Hana’s mother. But Schiavone asks Omega about Hangman’s absence and all of that, but especially Hangman screwing the Bucks in that gauntlet and then getting kicked out of The Elite! What are Omega’s feelings on that? Omega says that everyone makes mistakes in life, we all know that. This is something Hangman will have to live with for the rest of his life. But what Omega and Hangman as a team must first deal with is All Out, FTR coming for the tag titles.

“Yes, oh my goodness, a lovelorn, a very lonely Hangman Adam Page, was taken by the cockroaches, FTR, and fooled. It happens!” We live, we learn, we move on, simple as that. But what won’t change is that like every team before, Hangman and Omega will defeat them. FTR at the PPV, bring your A Game, because Omega and Hangman will bring theirs. Yes, as always, just like at Revolution. But speaking of FTR and Tully, here they come, with another of those Styrofoam coolers. They walk down the ramp, Schiavone is worried but Omega is willing to let these guys in the ring and talk.

Dax says Omega and Hangman have had a great run. Dax is impressed with two singles guys becoming a good enough team to be champions. FTR has no problem with Omega, never have. And FTR wants a great tag match with them, something that blows all expectations away, in a match against two great pro-wrestlers. So to that, how about we have a toast? Chocolate milk, Omega can’t say no to the choc. Omega appreciates that, since he and FTR have known each other for all of, oh, three months now. FTR has gotten to know him well, and they’re right, he can’t give up “a good pasteurized, 2% pint of choc.” But uh, Omega can turn down spending any more time than he needs to with “a couple dickheads.”

So if FTR’s plan was to bamboozle Omega while he was alone, let’s get it over with. 2v1, right? Oh, sorry, 3v1. Sorry, Tully! Omega might lose this but he’ll get his shots in. Let’s make this quick, there are more matches tonight. But just do Omega a favor: keep the old man out, Omega can smell the Depends from here. FTR gets riled up, Omega is on his guard, and he even dares Tully to do something. NOW Hangman appears! FTR welcomes the big superstar, the hero cowboy we all love! FTR was waiting to hear from Hangman, who has very red, puffy eyes right now.

FTR wants Hangman to explain to Omega who got in Hangman’s head and made them do the things that he did. Explain to us all who made Hangman turn on the Buck so there wouldn’t be a rematch with their best friends, the Young Bucks! Because it wasn’t FTR. It wasn’t anyone else but Hangman. Omega and Hangman have known each other for a few years, but Dax has known Hangman for his entire career, and for his entire career, Hangman has been “Nothing more than an insecure little boy.” FTR did nothing at all but Hangman got stuck in his own head. So explain to Omega how Hangman only cares about himself, because he’s that much of a “piece of s*it!”

Omega keeps Hangman back because FTR is getting into his head, but Cash just adds that Omega already knows how big of a POS Hangman is. Hangman and Omega stare down, Omega tells Hangman that this is just because of the titles. Speaking of, FTR grabbed the belts, but then drop them at Hangman’s feet. Fans boo FTR as they leave with Tully, and cheer for Hangman and Omega. Hangman goes to hand Omega his belt, but Omega has already left the ring. Is it all but inevitable that FTR takes the titles and ends both the reign and the union of Cowboy and Cleaner?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

Alex Marvez reminds us that Jericho VS Cassidy III will be the first-ever-anywhere Mimosa Mayhem match at All Out, and asks Jericho what we can expect. Jericho asks when was the last time you experienced something for the first time. Something you never thought you’d experience and might never experience again. Like kissing a woman, for instance. Fans will get to experience “the perfect culmination of 14 weeks” to finally decide who is the better man. Jericho says he has made Cassidy into a better man. He has brought out the passion and desire and viciousness in Cassidy, and made him into a main event player in AEW. But that is why Jericho needs to send Cassidy back to where he came from. Cassidy may be a main eventer, but he isn’t Le Champion.

Jericho will hit Cassidy with Judas Effect, tap to the Walls of Jericho, then toss him into 500 gallons of mimosa! Then Cassidy’s dreams and desires will be drowned in a little bit of the bubbly, and a whole lot of Le Champion. God help Janela, because he will be a sacrifice to show Cassidy what is in store for him at Saturday. “Bad Boy, things are about to get a whole lot worse for you tonight.” Good luck with your first kiss, Marvez. Will Janela have something to say about this “sacrifice” business?

Chris Jericho w/ Jake Hager VS Joey Janela!

That very match Jericho just talked about is up next! Will Janela make things bad for the #DemoGod before Freshly Squeezed gets to go All Out with him?

AEW returns as Jericho makes his entrance, and the fans get to sing with his theme song again. Cassidy makes his entrance, accepting the invite to watch this match from the stands. It seems Hager and Jericho are actually surprised he accepted. Another surprise is Jericho is wearing an official Orange Cassidy shirt. The bell rings and Janela ties up with Jericho to throw fast hands! Jericho knees and clubs Janela to the corner and fires off. The ref backs Jericho off but Jericho comes back to CHOP and CHOP Janela! Jericho whips corner to corner, clotheslines hard then snapmares Janela down for a neck crank. Jericho rains down right hands on Janela, lets off to soak up the heat and shout at Cassidy.

Jericho brings Janela up, back suplexes high and hard, then taunts the fans that boo. Jericho rains down more rights on Janela, soaks up the heat and paces about. Jericho drags Janela up, back suplexes high and hard again, and Janela gasps and sputters for air. Jericho stands on Janela’s pigtails and pulls the arms! The ref counts, Jericho stops and he shouts at Cassidy more. Jericho drags Janela up, whips, and forearms Janela down! Jericho can’t stop staring down Cassidy, but the fans rally for “Joey! Joey!” Janela hits back, Jericho clubs him down over and over. The ref reprimands the hair pulling, but Jericho slaps Janela around.

Janela throws forearms, Jericho clubs him again, then back suplexes. Janela lands on his feet, fires off fast hands and fires up. Janela runs and hits a BIG shoulder attack! Janela fires up again, whips Jericho but Jericho reverses to LARIAT Janela! Jericho paces, drags Janela up, and knees Jericho in the head over and over! Jericho throws Janela to the ramp, taunts Cassidy and soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Janela comes back to FLY IN, into a CODE BREAKER! Hager cheers as Jericho puts Janela in the WALLS! But Janela is OUT, Jericho wins!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by submission

But Jericho doesn’t stop, and he rains down rights on The Bad Boy! Jericho taunts Cassidy before he tears the top buckle pad off! He even throws the pad at Cassidy just to rile him up. Jericho has Janela up and RAMS him into the bare buckle! “See what happens?!” Jericho drags Janela back up, but Janela is bleeding! Jericho punches away on the wound, drags Janela up and smears the blood on the Cassidy shirt! “See that, Cassidy!?” That’s going to be Cassidy at All Out! Jericho tears the shirt off and tosses, then dares the SOB to get in the ring! Cassidy springs right up and rushes the ring! Cassidy and Jericho brawl, Hager gets in and throws Cassidy down!

Hager has Cassidy against the bare buckle as he and Jericho mug Cassidy! But here comes Sonny Kiss! Kiss CLOBBERS Jericho on behalf of Janela, but Hager SPINE BUSTERS Kiss down! Cassidy pushes Hager out of the ring and fires off on Jericho! Jericho shoves, Cassidy tilt-o-whirl DDT’s back! And kips up! The fans are fired up for Freshly Squeezed, but Hager saves Jericho from the super punch! Cassidy opens his backpack up to reveal his secret weapon: a bottle of the bubbly! Cassidy undoes it, pops the cork and lets the bubbly pour out with a thumbs down! Jericho is furious, but will he be all washed up when there will be the giant tank of mimosa waiting?

 

AEW shares Sammy Guevara’s post match comments after last week.

It was after the brutal Tables match with Matt Hardy that Sammy said, “Victorious at your own game, Matt. But look at this! Scar for a scar, Matt.” This grudge is tied, so All Out will be the tiebreaker! Sammy dares Matt to choose the stipulation, and he has chosen… A BROKEN RULES MATCH! Sammy vows that when he beats Matt, Matt retires, leaves AEW and never comes back! Matt says Sammy will have to go through hell for that to happen. They’ve hit each other with golf carts, chairs, tables, and their best moves. Sammy vows to go all out, Matt accepts the bet! Who wins, who gets BROKEN, and who stays in All Elite Wrestling?!

 

Sammy Guevara has his cue cards!

AEW is picture in picture, #SammysSigns, and Matt Hardy even watches from a perch as Sammy goes through the cards. “Last week, you witnessed the destruction of a legend. The dismantling of an icon. The breaking of Matt Hardy! The Master of the Table Match is no more! At All Out, not only will you (Hardy) lose, you will be DELETED! Gone from AEW, and forgotten! Long live the career of the Spanish God!” Sammy holds those cards up proudly but is he even aware Hardy is watching from overhead? Sammy does see Hardy, and Hardy shouts, “DELETE!” He has cards of his own! “At All Out, you will be… BROKEN!” Hardy has his ultimatum for Sammy, what won’t happen in a (Last Man Standing) Broken Rules Match?

 

Team Taz heads to the ring!

Taz leads Ricky Starks and Brian Cage and says, “Here’s the deal.” Saturday, All Out, one of these two athletes here will win that Casino Battle Royal. Darby Allin, if you don’t realize that Absolute Ricky Starks is not gonna destroy you, son, wake up! You’re dead meat!” And the Murderhawk Monster and his “buddy” Jake the Snake, cannot deal with the FTR World Champion- “No, no no no. Tit for tat.” Jake and Lance Archer are here to respond, an interruption for an interruption. And Jake tells Taz’s team are just squirrels trying to get a nut, but they ain’t busting a nut when Archer and Jake are here. “You won’t get none!” Taz and team will walk out with nothing! What Jake pictures here is “the best set of losers I’ve ever seen.”

Careful, Jake, if you get in the ring. Archer does get in but Jake doesn’t want him playing into the game. But Eddie Kingston and his guys roll up, and Eddie begs, “for the love of God,” stop talking! “We get it, Jake, you’re a legend! We get it, Taz!” This show is live, hurry up and save some time. No more talking. Kingston knows Archer is tough, but he ain’t tougher than Kingston. Taz used to be a killer, now he’s around big-for-nothing machines! But now, Tully brings #PERFECT10N, Shawn Spears around. Jake says Kingston’s been drinking, and Taz wants Kingston to make a point. Kingston’s point is that Taz is hanging out with Ricky Starks! “I don’t know whether to take him out on a date or fight him!”

Taz is sick of Kingston’s talk and speaks for his team! “These two men will fight all of you guys right now, especially you, you punkass!” Uh oh! Things are heating up, Starks punches Archer but Archer DECKS Starks! Cage tackles Archer to a corner, the Gunn Club jumps in from the crowd to go after Kingston’s guys! The Casino Battle Royal field is fighting now! And here comes Darby Allin! But where from? He comes in from the tunnel to TACKLE Spears! They brawl, Spears and Tully step back, and now Serpentico and a few others get in! Butcher and Blade clobber Gunn Club, Serpentico brawls with whoever, Archer throws someone out then clamps onto Fenix. Faboo Andre and a few others get in as Billy Gunn and Kingston brawl.

Cage tosses Serpentico over and out! D3 is thrown over and out! Archer stomps Pentagon and CHOPS him! Spears finally gets in to pick apart Austin Gunn, but wait! Here come Santana and Ortiz! They beat Best Friends, they and Hager are getting in on the action! But so do Best Friends! It’s even more chaos on the stage! Kingston’s guys regroup as the biggest unit in this match, Hager and Archer stare down but Billy throws hands on them both! Starks keeps going after Darby, Jake laughs as he watches all of this. Santnaa, Ortiz, Chuck and Trent continue their fight from earlier tonight, even using chairs! Refs finally appear as AEW goes picture in picture, #AEWAllOutBattle!

Archer and Cage tie up, Cage clubs and pushes Archer to ropes. D3 and Faboo return but get swamped right away! Best Friends and PNP keep brawling, Kingston tries to choke Cage out, but Cage and Archer actually work together to mug him! Then Archer BOOTS Cage! Hager goes after Darby for past reasons, Gunn Club goes after Archer, but Kingston’s guys form up around him to hunker down in a corner and hit whoever comes close. Cage and Archer slug it out, Team Kingston throws Faboo and Serpentico out, Billy goes after Archer again. Archer turns it around to throw hands on Billy, but Billy doesn’t flinch. Billy hits Archer back but then Archer ROCKS Billy! Fenix CLOBBERS Faboo!

Team Taz mugs Darby together, Trent has a sleeper on Santana and grinds him down! Billy picks a fight with Kingston’s guys but gets mugged by Blade and Fenix. Cage and Starks work together on Archer, AEW returns to single picture and only now does Santana, Ortiz and Best Friends get in the ring. Hager throws hands on Archer but Archer hits him back! Darby chokes Starks with his own chain necklace! AEW has to cut away from the chaos in order to continue with the show!

 

AEW takes a closer look at The Dark Order.

Brodie Lee says, “We do what we want, when we want. And if I want something, I take it.” He did just that with the AEW TNT Championship from Cody Rhodes. A Saturday Night Dynamite ended with a slaughter of the American Nightmare and the Nightmare Family. “You created this monster, and now this monster has decided to take over AEW. This is what The Dark Order does.” But Dustin Rhodes says that was all uncalled for. “It is unforgivable, and you will pay.”

Dustin, QT Marshall, Matt Cardona and even Scorpio Sky, all friends and allies to Cody, have united to take the fight to Dark Order! The best pure athlete in AEW in Scorpio, an all-pro with a chip on his shoulder in Cardona, and the Natural Nightmares. Four badasses with one common goal, they will succeed. Cardona knows Brodie is frustrated from being held back and pushed aside. Join the club! Cardona doesn’t even have an AEW contract but that means he has nothing to lose. Nothing is stronger than family. They may not be blood, but they are family. At All Out, Dustin vows the Dark Order will fall!

 

Thunder Rosa VS Serena Deeb!

The NWA Women’s World Champion wants to become AEW Women’s World Champion on top of it, so she tunes up with her AEW in-ring debut! Will she rain down fury before she looks to reign in two promotions?

The bell rings and Rosa circles with Deeb. The fans rally already as they tie up. They go around furiously, end up on ropes but then move right off for Deeb to get the arm. Deeb wrenches to a wristlock, Rosa rolls, drop toeholds and hooks the leg to even grab hair. The ref reprimands, Rosa shifts to get a headlock but Deeb gets up to waistlock. Deeb drags Rosa down to the mat, Rosa powers up but Deeb shifts to a headlock. Rosa throws body shots, powers out of the headlock, but Deeb reverses to uppercut! Rosa just scowls before she ROCKS Deeb with a right! Deeb uppercuts back, Rosa catches the next one to a backslide to arm-drag! Rosa arm-drags again then dropkicks Deeb down!

Deeb staggers, Rosa grabs hair at the ropes, then CHOPS her on the ropes! Rosa whips Deeb, Deeb reverses and crosses arms for a straitjacket neckbreaker! Deeb hooks a leg, rolls Rosa and grabs a leg to SMASH the knee! And again! And again and again and again! Deeb pulls back for a Half Crab, Rosa gets the ropebreak. The ref counts, Deeb lets go right away and Rosa is on the apron. Rosa forearms Deeb away as AEW goes picture in picture, no hashtag this time.

Rosa shoulders into Deeb but Deeb facelocks and cranks on Rosa’s head! Deeb turns Rosa in the ropes for a hotshot neckbreaker! Rosa flops down, Deeb drags her to a cover, TWO! Rosa pushes Deeb away, Deeb runs back but Rosa drop toeholds her to ropes! Rosa clubs away on Deeb then lets off at the ref’s count to run and straddle attack! Rosa fires up as she BOOTS Deeb down! Rosa stalks Deeb, kicks her while she’s down, then brings her up, and drops to a knee for a neckbreaker! But Rosa holds on to bring Deeb back up for another quick neckbreaker, then drops for the full neckbreaker! Rosa talks trash then drags Deeb to center.

Rosa runs, runs and drops a leg, brother! But Rosa doesn’t cover, she drags Deeb back up into a chinlock. Deeb endures, even as Rosa thrashes her around and clubs away. The NWA Women’s Champion is in control as AEW goes to full break.

AEW returns and Rosa KICKS Deeb hard in the back! Deeb writhes but gets up to CHOP! ANd CHOP! And CHOP! Rosa ROCKS Deeb with a right and chokes her on the ropes. The ref reprimands and counts, Rosa lets off at 4 then brings Deeb up for more forearms. Rosa waistlocks and bearhugs Deeb, bringing her down to the mat. Then Rosa gets the arms for a straitjacket stretch. Deeb fights up, turns the hold around onto Rosa, and hits a BACKSTABBER! Both women are down, fans rally, Rosa runs but Deeb clotheslines her down! And again! Deeb wrenches to hit a shoulder breaker! And then hooks the arm and leg for the IRON OCTOPUS! Rosa endures, pops out, Deb rolls her up, TWO!

Deeb runs at a corner but Rosa elbows her away. Rosa dodges, runs corner to corner and hits an A-List Lariat! Deeb is down, Rosa swings in for a METEROA! Fans fire up as Rosa runs, basement dropkick on Deeb at the ropes! Cover, TWO!! Deeb is still in this and Rosa grows frustrated. Rosa drags Deeb up, hooks her up in a Bow ‘n’ Arrow type rack, spins around but Deeb rolls her up! TWO!! Deeb kicks low, reels Rosa in, underhooks and traps the arms before she lifts, but Rosa kicks to deny the driver! Rosa fireman’s carries, for a DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Cover, TWO!?! Deeb survives, Rosa drags her around and knuckle locks for a cover, TWO!

Deeb hooks the arms with her legs to pop Rosa into a sunset flip! TWO, Rosa sits on Deeb, ONE! Both women are back up, Rosa spins, fires off hands and BACK HANDS, to a GERMAN SUPLEX! Deeb staggers up, Rosa runs and KNEES Deeb down! Rosa slashes the throat and drags Deeb up in a cradle, for THUNDER DRIVER!! Cover, Rosa wins!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall

Deeb looked impressive against the NWA Women’s World Champion, but impressive isn’t better! Rosa is rolling to All Out, will she make history by becoming a champion in both promotions? Or will Shida stand her ground and defend her turf?

 

AEW hears from Jon Moxley.

“We’re here. I love it. Championship week. You made it, MJF, you climbed to the top of the rankings, and Saturday night, you get your shot.” Don’t sweat the process. Y’know, the nerves, the stacks of posters and autographing, photoshoots and dealing with the media’s same questions over and over a thousand times. Because on Saturday, when the bell rings, all those distractions, “all that crap” goes away and it’s just MJF and Moxley. Then there’s one question left to answer: “Are you ready and willing to kill or be killed?” The MJF that we see Saturday has to be the meanest, most savage MJF we’ve seen yet in order to take Moxley out. But Moxley will keep it simple. “2020 has been a bad enough year already, we don’t need MJF’s dumbass running around with the title on top of everything else.”

So MJF is here, this is his moment. “Trial by fire, kill or be killed. Suffer or look for a way out.” MJF thinks he’s hot stuff, but everything he’s done until now? That’s the easy part. Is MJF ready for the hard part when he finally faces Moxley?

 

AEW returns to Schiavone interviewing Big Swole.

Big Swole won the handicap match and has her match with Britt Baker in the All Out Buy-In! Swole tells “Brittany Basura Baker” that she’s been ducking and dodging for the longest time. That changes Saturday! At the Buy-In, Britt won’t have anywhere to hide, because Swole is showing up at Britt’s job! It will be #ToothAndNail! Another unique match, but someone has a special delivery for Schiavone. A pizza? No one called for this. It’s paid for! Yummy yummy! Swole can tell that’s just Rebel in a hat and mask, she ain’t fooling nobody. But then BLAM! Britt smashes Swole with a crutch from behind!! And again and again!

Britt kicks Swole around, and that pizza is real, because Britt smashes Swole’s face into it! And then SUPERKICKS her and the pizza down! Britt puts Swole in the Rings of Stretch, and then clamps on the LOCKJAW!! Britt says Swole wants to fight in her house, this is what she’ll get! Swole can only suffer as she and Britt roll in the pizza! Britt and Rebel smear more pizza in Swole’s face! Referees and security get Britt and Rebel to leave Swole alone, but will Swole make Britt eat crow when they battle in the dentist’s office?

 

AEW sets out the All Out Weekend schedule!

First it will be a special Friday Dark on YouTube to share all the dark matches from tonight! Then Saturday, 5 PM ET, the first half of the All Out Red Carpet on YouTube! TNT will have the Countdown special at 5:30 PM ET, and then back to YouTube for the other half of the Red Carpet! The Buy-In is 7 ET live on PPV, leading right into All Out 2020! Are you ready for the biggest weekend in AEW history?

 

Jon Moxley VS Mark Sterling w/ Wardlow!

We heard Moxley’s thoughts, and he doesn’t think #WeDeserveBetter if the alternative is Maxwell Jacob Friedman. And clearly Mark is still reluctant as Wardlow has to toss him out of the tunnel! And then keep him from going out the other tunnel. Will Smart Mark look pretty dumb in his AEW in-ring debut? We find out after the break.

AEW returns as Moxley makes his entrance. Mark is getting the nervous sweats as Moxley gets in the ring and the fans fire up for the champ. Wardlow makes sure Mark stays put and Moxley says a prayer for what he’s about to do. The bell rings and Mark wipes the sweat from his forehead. Mark and Moxley circle, Moxley takes a quick step and Mark springs into the corner! Mark is upset but the ref says Moxley didn’t even do anything. Moxley waits for Mark, reminding him MJF signed on the dotted line. Mark slowly creeps out, circles around Moxley, but Moxley doesn’t even bother to turn around. Moxley decides to give Mark a free shot just to see what he’s got.

Moxley has his hands behind his back, but then he questions Mark’s form. Mark says he’s getting ready to punch but Moxley corrects him on it. This fist won’t hurt your hand now. Oh, okay. Mark swings, misses, and Moxley SLAPS him off his feet! Mark wobbles back to his feet, Moxley makes another sharp step and Mark bails out fast! Wardlow asks what Mark is doing, and Mark says his ears are ringing. Wardlow tells Mark to get in but Mark can’t hear out that side. Moxley gives Mark another free shot, facing the other way. “Just drill me. Really drill me.” Mark runs and then Moxley moves, sending Mark tumbling out of the ring. Fans revel in seeing a lawyer suffer but Wardlow is furious.

Mark gets up, gets back on the apron, but then drops down because his hands are numb. Moxley goes out to pursue Mark, Wardlow even lets him. Moxley catches Mark’s kick, but then Mark pokes him in the eyes! Mark celebrates like he did something, then he runs, into a clothesline! Mark flounders back up and gets clothesline’d out! Moxley drags Mark up to throw him into barriers! Then he whips him into more railings! And then buries him in railings and chairs! The ref reprimands, Moxley adds on more chair for good measure, but then drags Mark out of the pile to DECK him. Moxley takes the clean white sneakers off Mark to beat him with them! Moxley then drags Mark up, brings him back to ringside, and puts him in the ring.

Moxley grabs a chair, puts it in the ring, but the ref says Mox needs to be careful. Moxley takes a seat to talk to Mark, then offers a handshake. Mark takes the handshake, but then Moxley returns the eye poke. Kick low, underhook, PARADIGM SHIFT!! Cover, Moxley wins!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

Was there ever any doubt? But Wardlow gets in and CLOBBERS Moxley! Then drags him up for the fireman’s carry and F10!! The ref reprimands but Wardlow just drags Moxley up for ANOTHER F10! MJF wheels himself out, throws the walker away and takes off the neck brace. All the complaints about the Paradigm Shift almost ending his career were, obviously, greatly exaggerated. MJF takes his time taking off his scarf, his jacket, and watch to go after Moxley himself. MJF rains down right hands as fans boo and jeer and Wardlow talks trash. MJF rakes eyes, puts Moxley in a corner and stomps away while taunting him. MJF unbuttons his shirt and knees Moxley in the ribs then digs his knee int Moxley’s face. “This is what you want! You want violence?! You got it!!”

MJF stands on Moxley’s head then has Wardlow hand him the Dynamite Diamond Ring. MJF puts it on his pinkie, Wardlow drags Moxley up, and MJF DECKS Moxley with the ring! MJF says, “This is what you’re gonna get on Saturday! You mad?!” MJF has busted Moxley open with that ring, then he BITES Moxley’s wound! MJF taunts Moxley to fight for the fans because it’s what they want! Moxley told MJF to be as vicious as possible, and here it is! MJF keeps punching the wound, there’s blood on MJF’s hands and face! Wardlow brings the title over and MJF takes it in his bloody hands. “THIS is the future! The next 25 years!” Will this be what we see at the end of All Out?


My Thoughts:

A very intense and savage go-home for AEW’s return to Wednesday after a couple weeks of special airings. The tag team grudge match was a great opener, and I actually liked that it was a dirty finish to keep things inconclusive between PNP/Inner Circle and Best Friends. I also like that they got in on the massive brawl of all the Casino Battle Royal entrants. For that matter, I loved that we got that massive brawl of Casino Battle Royal entrants. It starts with some great though messy promo battling, and thereby great faction confrontations. Eddie Kingston and team showed us the great teamwork they’re going to use in the actual battle royal, but I feel their chances of winning aren’t very good when the Butcher, Blade and Lucha Bros are mostly in the tag division and Kingston just got here.

The 8 Man Tag was great, especially with character work from the Bucks being much more focused, serious and aggressive, and Kaz even getting on Kassidy’s case. There was great cohesion even with all of them knowing they’d only have to face their allies. Bucks and Jurassic Express win and will have a great match that will surely propel one team to the titles. We got great stuff out of FTR, Tully, Hangman and Omega. FTR tries to be civil on the surface with the chocolate milk but Omega accuses them of being two-faced. Hangman shows up but doesn’t get out a word as FTR pins everything on him. Whether right or wrong, it seems FTR didn’t get into Hangman’s head but Omega’s head there, as Omega leaves Hangman hanging. I said last week that it started to feel like Omega might turn on Hangman, and that might happen after all.

Hager had a good bit with Cassidy backstage, and then Jericho VS Janela was a a good match. Of course Jericho was going to win, but his trash talk to Cassidy was good all the same. Cassidy going after Jericho and even getting some help from Sonny Kiss was good. The Mimosa Mayhem is going to be a very interesting match, and could go either way given Jericho will have Hager but Cassidy could get help from Janela and Kiss again. I wonder if Kiss and Janela will join Cassidy and Best Friends against Inner Circle, instead of Jurassic Express as I was first thinking. Janela could make Blood & Guts even crazier than before. I also liked Sammy having his card promo but Hardy having his own from the roof of Daily’s Place. Broken Rules being code for Last Man Standing/Extreme Rules is neat, and if the idea is that Matt Hardy losing means he’s gone, I have a feeling he wins.

The Dark Order VS Cody’s Friends vignette was really well done, and that 8 Man Tag will be a great match. I wonder if Cody returns during that match to sway things in favor of Dustin, QT, Cardona and Scorpio while also declaring he wants a rematch with Brodie. Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb gave us a great match for both of their AEW in-ring debuts, but I wonder who that really helps. Deeb has earned her stripes and reinforces it here, but will fans unfamiliar with Rosa and Deeb understand that? Rosa is a champion getting ready to face a champion, shouldn’t she look really good? Or is the psychology that winning such a competitive match establishes that? Either way, it’s obvious Rosa VS Shida is going to be awesome, but I still feel Shida wins to defend her home turf.

The attack on Swole by Britt and Rebel was some great stuff, especially adding pizza into this. A shame what happened to the pizza but it adds some great last minute heat on this match. I like that it will be an “on location” gimmick match with this #ToothAndNail idea. That will be a lot of fun, could go either way since it’ll literally give Britt “home field advantage,” and I bet the winner comes out a top contender for the title. And of course, there was great stuff for MJF, Moxley and Smart Mark Sterling. Moxley dared MJF to bring out his dark side and I think he did just that. There was great heat on MJF with everything he did to Moxley, as a Heel should have, but I have a feeling MJF finally takes his first singles loss by Moxley in a gritty match worthy of that.

My Score: 9.3/10

Darby Allin VS The Beast Mortos!

The ESports Stadium in Texas fires up as The Relentless One is back in action! He’s getting ready for Blood & Guts this Wednesday, but will he be red hot going into Dynamite? Or will he not get past the beast standing in his way?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Darby circles with Mortos, they tie up, and Mortos powers Darby to a corner. The ref counts, Mortos lets off and the two reset.

Sunset flip, but Darby sits on it! Mortos pushes up but Darby rolls him to a cover, TWO! Darby clamps on with a SLEEPER! The fans rally, Mortos fights up, and Mortos runs to BACKPACK CANNONBALL!

Mortos tumbles up and out, no cameramen harmed in the fall!

Darby goes up to SUPER COFFIN DROP! Down goes Mortos again and the fans lose their minds! Darby drags Mortos back up, puts him in the ring, and then climbs up. But Mortos HEADBUTTS Darby down! Mortos builds speed to TORNILLO TOPE!! Direct hit and the fans are thunderous again! They cheer on “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving them this opener.

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Both men were relentless tonight, but it’s Darby who survives their Collision! Will Darby be even more dangerous when he steps inside the double ring, double cage that is Blood & Guts?

Darby gets a mic to have his music cut. He says people tell him to slow down, or else he won’t be able to walk when he’s 30. Well, he is 30 now, and he feels wonderful! The only thing is, Darby doesn’t take the night off. Darby doesn’t forget being a dishwasher. He’d rather get kicked in the face any night of the week than go back to that. And we’re getting ready for Blood & Guts, and it’s very fitting that Darby’s finally in one. If anyone saw Sting’s final match, they saw Darby’s guts hanging out! He has a scar on his side that looks like Harry Potter’s forehead, and it stings every day. The fans cheer that!

Darby wants to talk the EVPs for a second, The Young Bucks. What sucks about them is that they never come to Collision, they never advertise the shows on the news or radio. It is Darby! AEW is Darby’s baby now! And he will stop at nothing to make sure everyone knows! Darby wouldn’t be here if not for The Bucks, that’s no secret, but man, they suck so bad now. And Jack Perry… Oh, Jack Perry. TNT Champion? No, that title means everything to Darby, and he will stop at nothing until the belt is around his waist again. So All In is around the corner… If Jack has the balls, let’s play! Darby is ready for Blood & Guts, see you Wednesday!

 

The Acclaimed speak.

Max Caster says, “Yo! Listen! The Elite, Blood & Guts next week, Team AEW is about to stomp on those tiny little nuts.” Billy Gunn tells Caster to just stop right there. That is not what the match is about. It is not about Bowens being The Scissor King, or about Caster being a rapper. It is about being the best wrestlers alive, and about being a badass! They need to bring this fight to The Elite! Time to nut up or shut up! Daddy Ass is fired up for his boys, and that fires them up! Bowens & Caster are ready to get serious, will they make The Young Bucks pay for playing games with them?

 

Skye Blue VS Hikaru Shida!

To be the best, you gotta beat one of the best, and that is why Chicago Skye called out the former THREE-TIME AEW Women’s World Champion! Will Skye use this Collision to build momentum? Or is she just going to give Shida her own rebound victory towards a title?

The bell rings and Skye BOOTS Shida down! Skye bumps Shida off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, then lets off. Skye brings Shida around to bump off buckles again, then stomps her more. Shida hits back, but Skye ROCKS her for it. Skye brings Shida around again, but Shida breaks free to ROCK Skye! Skye fires another forearm, but so does Shida! They go back and forth, faster and faster, then Shida fires off a flurry! Shida ROCKS Skye, fires up, then catches Skye to spin her. Skye ELBOWS Shida first, then runs, but into a KNEE! Shida runs but Skye SHINING WIZARDS at the ropes! Skye snapmares and runs up, but Shida blocks!

Shida spins Skye, ducks the spin kick and rolls Skye up! Skye rolls through but Shida DROPKICKS her out of the ring! The fans fire up and Shida watches Skye go around the way. Shida goes up and CROSSBODIES! Down goes Skye and the ref has Doc Sampson check. Shida gets herself a chair while she waits, and the fans fire up while Collision goes picture in picture.

Shida paces while Skye is checked out. That fall really rocked her, maybe even beat up a leg. Shida paces, then goes back into the ring to wait. Shida keeps the fans fired up, but it doesn’t look good for Skye. Shida checks with the ref, and it seems the match has been called! Shida wins by default!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by medical stoppage

A real shame for Skye, as she was the one who wanted this fight. But Shida is still moving on, will she be waiting on the champions after All In?

 

Lancer Archer is going nuts backstage!

He is beating up and throwing around prospects left and right! One guy walks in, sees what’s going on, and turns right around, only for Archer to grab him and CHUCK him into the garage door! “It seems everyone has forgotten who the Murderhark Monster is! Everyone’s forgotten just what I can do. And it’s time to remind you all!” Archer CHUCKS a trash can into another guy, #EverybodyDies! Who else will be unfortunate enough to face Archer’s wrath?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Hi, guys~! And hello, Minoru Suzuki. We’ve been waiting a long time for this match, haven’t we? For four years, I’ve been thinking of Suzuki VS Jericho. For four years, I’ve been wanting this match in the Tokyo Dome, or on Dynamite. And now, this Wednesday, the match comes true. It’s a dream match for sure. First time ever! But for you, Minoru, it’s gonna be a nightmare. Get ready for some night sweats and night terrors just thinking what I’m gonna do to you, and even worse after the match. They talk about Blood & Guts this Wednesday. This match is gonna be far more violent than that.

“They call you The Murder Grampa, one of the most violent men who ever came outta Japan. Well, Suzuki, if there’s anybody that can match you blow for blow, experience for experience, match for match, it’s me. So Suzuki, I can’t wait to teach you a few very valuable lessons. And one of them is gonna be you should’ve never turned down The Learning Tree when I asked you to be my partner, and you never should’ve come to the ring during TV Time last week on Dynamite. Suzuki, this is it, one for the ages. Like I said, first time ever, Jericho, Suzuki, Learning Tree VS the most violent man in Japanese history, I can’t wait.

“We’ll see you on, Wednesday, Suzuki, you’re not gonna like it. Thanks, guys!” The Learning Tree has been rather delusional these days, but has he reached a new level with this? Or does he have something up his sleeve to help him survive Suzuki?

 

Rey Fenix w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Tony Nese w/ The Premier Athletes!

The Immortal Firebird just won big last night on Rampage alongside Penta El Zero Miedo, but there’s no slowing down with him! However, “Smart Mark” Sterling has everyone stop so his client can say something very important. Nese takes the mic, even as fans boo, and Nese says “When they said everything is bigger in Texas, I’m gonna be honest. I thought they were talking about the cars, the houses. But the reason why they say that, now i can see, is because all of you are terribly, terribly FAT!” The fans boo but Nese says yes, it upsets him, too. But it isn’t entirely their fault. It is not. It’s because they haven’t had real athletes to look up!

Who’re they looking up to? The under-500 Texas Rangers? So, Nese’s lawyer, THE GREATEST lawyer in pro-wrestling, Sterling has made a contract to give a lucky individual an opportunity. But more importantly, it gives every single piece of trash here tonight to see what a real athlete looks like! But here comes Fenix! Will he make Nese regret flexing on Texas?

The bell rings and the fans rally for “LUCHA! LUCHA!” Fenix and Nese circle, feel things out, and they tie up. Nese wrenches, wristlocks, and grinds the arm. Fenix moves around, uses ropes to flip through, and then he wrenches to wristlock back. The fans rally as Fenix twists the wrist, but Nese fights up. Fenix HEADBUTTS the arm, but Nese fights up again. Fenix wrenches, Nese rolls, and then Nese throat chops! The fans boo and the ref reprimands, but Nese SOBATS Fenix to run and BOOT! And WHEEL KICK! Cover, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese soaks up the heat. Nese stalks Fenix but the fans chant “You Still Suck!”

Nese CLUBS Fenix with crossface forearms, taunts the fans, then he drags Fenix up. Fenix knees free, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then springboards, but the ropes give out! Cover, TWO! Nese drags Fenix by his leg, stomps away, and Fenix crawls away. Nese stalks Fenix, stomps the leg more, then brings him up. Nese CHOPS, Fenix CHOPS, repeat! The fans “WOO~!” as the CHOPS keep going! Fenix fires up and he CHOPS! Nese falls back against ropes while Fenix eggs him on! Nese kicks low, whips, but Fenix reverses and DROPKICKS! Nese bails out, Fenix gets the bad leg moving, and he builds speed, only for Sterling to save Nese!

Fenix slides out, glares at Sterling, then ROCKS Nese! Daivari steps up but that’s a distraction. Same for Josh Woods! The ref reprimands, Nese blocks the superkick to then SUPERKICK back! Fenix falls, Nese slides into the ring, and that lets the Premier Athletes mug Fenix! The fans boo but the ref misses it all as Collision goes picture in picture.

Fenix clutches his leg, drags himself up, and Daivari talks trash on the fans. Nese AX HANDLES Fenix, but then Fenix shoves Nese. Nese ROCKS Fenix, CHOPS him again, but Fenix just CHOPS back! Nese kicks the bad leg, then whips Fenix hard into railing! Fenix falls over, Nese flexes while soaking up heat, and he goes back for Fenix. Nese puts Fenix in the ring, stomps him, then paces around. Nese drags Fenix up, TOSSES him up, and the Premier Athletes mug Fenix again! Fenix tumbles away to the ramp while Abrahantes protests, but that just lets even Sterling get his shots in! Fenix storms up on Sterling and he runs away as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Nese covers, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese pushes him around. Fenix CHOPS back! Fenix eggs Nese on, Nese SLAPS, so Fenix CHOPS! Nese fires a haymaker, talks trash, but Fenix fires body shots. Nese stands Fenix up to CHOP him back down! Nese drags Fenix to a cover, ONE! Nese is annoyed but he drags Fenix up. Fenix CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS, CHOPS, CHOPS! Nese throat chops! The ref reprimands, but Nese HOTSHOT BULLDOGS! Then he slingshots to roll Fenix up, TWO! Nese deadlifts to a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and the fans fire up!

Nese and the Premier Athletes are frustrated but the fans rally behind Fenix. Nese drags Fenix up, pushes him to a corner and he fires haymakers! The fans boo but Nese sits Fenix down. The ref counts, Nese lets off, and Nese brings down the kneepads. Nese goes side to side, but Fenix somersaults to SPIKE-RANA! Cover, TWO!! Nese survives, but Fenix BOOTS him! Fenix runs in to JUMP SOBAT! Nese wobbles, Fenix brings him around to wrench, but Daivari gets on the apron! Fenix runs Daivari off, but Nese runs in! Fenix DUMPS Nese out onto Daivari! The fans fire up and Fenix builds speed to FLY! Down go ALL the Premier Athletes!

The fans are thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” while Sterling panics. Fenix rises, and he puts Nese in. The fans rally behind Fenix as he climbs. Fenix reaches the top rope, but Sterling gets on the apron! So Fenix tightrope walk PENALTY KICKS him down! But Nese rolls Fenix! SOBAT HEEL KICK! Nese goes up and up and PREMIER 450! Cover, TWO!! Nese is furious that Fenix survives but the fans are thunderous! Nese drags himself over and brings Fenix up. Nese pump handles, lifts, but Fenix slips free and SUPERKICKS! Nese leans against ropes, Fenix goes up, tightrope PENALTY KICK! Fenix goes up to FROG SPLASH! Cover, Fenix wins!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall

It was practically 4v1 but Fenix still wins out! Will this momentum help Fenix head after whatever championship he wants after All In?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He welcomes us back to the ESports Stadium, and welcomes in two men AEW loves, it’s FTR! The fans fire up as Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood make their way out, having made their return just last week to help Tommy Billington against The Don Callis Family. FTR joins Schiavone in the ring and he brings up that big return to stand up to the Don Callis Family. Thankfully they did, so he asks their thoughts. Cash says if you ask him, Dynamite Kid Tommy Billington has one of the brightest futures in wrestling today, and they weren’t gonna let the Don Callis Family walk all over him.

But Cash also wants to talk FTR. It is no secret that the past two years has been the greatest run in their careers. The fans cheer that! Schiavone says the fans agree with Cash, and Cash says he thinks so, too. But while this was something Cash didn’t wanna talk about, when FTR was told they had time to talk tonight, he figured he should get it off his chest. It is no secret that Cash has been going through personal stuff that has dragged his name through the mud, is a cloud over his head, and he has had more stress than he could ever tell us all. Every single night, when he came out here, that was his escape.

This is where Cash could forget all that other crap, even when it wasn’t true. Every week, night after night, the fans helped Cash get through that. All that out there didn’t matter to him! It only mattered that he wrestled every match like it was his last, because he didn’t know if it was gonna be his last. So it isn’t a secret that Cash is a hot head, but it won’t happen outside this ring. Now the only people FTR has their eyes set on are The Young Bucks! So maybe, just maybe, time to go Buck Hunting!

Dax tells Schiavone that 2022 and 2023 were good times for FTR fans. FOUR world tag titles, THREE incredible matches with The Briscoes, and 58 MINUTES with Bullet Club Gold in Calgary. And the cherry on top: Beating the Bucks in front of 80 THOUSAND people in Wembley Stadium. But now, this is the present, and their win-loss record isn’t so great. Back in April, Dax had a serious back injury that he thought he wasn’t gonna come back from. But what really bothered him was The Bucks leap-frogging FTR as the best tag team in the world, and that didn’t sit well with him. The fans boo, they don’t like it either.

Dax says six weeks ago, he was sent home to rehab. He watched Collision, Dynamite and Rampage, all in hopes that “our EVPs, our fearless leaders,” would take this tag division back to the top and take it to the Promised Land. Dax was so let down. In six weeks, we haven’t seen The Bucks defend their titles. The fans boo that, too. Dax says maybe, just maybe, this is a big mistake. But starting next week, here in Arlington, Texas, FTR’s road to the AEW World Tag Team Championships begins. FTR starts their road back, and it ends at Wembley Stadium at All In!

And Dax knows sometimes he is rough to deal with, a little abrasive. But if you’ll give him a little grace, a little love, he promises FTR will give you all every bit of passion, love, tears, sweat and whatever else, so that they will become the THREE-TIME AEW World Tag Team Champions! The fans chant for “F T R! F T R!” and Dax tells The Bucks, “This whole thing’s for you. Top Guys, Out!” Just as AEW starts on the homestretch to All In 2024, FTR want to hit it out of the park! Will they get their shot at Matthew & Nicholas? Or are they overlooking The Acclaimed and their own shot at the gold?

 

Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida.

Lexy Nair is with the Shining Samurai and brings up the match tonight. Shida says stop, stop, stop. She came here for a fight, is still looking for a fight, and she wants to fight! Shida wants a fight… with DOCTOR BRITT BAKER!! Welcome back, by the way. And now Britt just wants to be TBS Champion? Get in line! Or does Britt not remember that Shida made her bleed once before? Shida will do it again this Wednesday on Dynamite: Blood & Guts! There could be a lot more blood than TBS bargained for, but will Shida make sure All In’s card is subject to change?

 

Roderick Strong VS Tomohiro Ishii!

The Savior of the Backbreaker will challenge Mark Briscoe for the ROH World Championship next Friday at Death Before Dishonor, right in this same building! However, he’s up against #BigTime Ishii, someone he’s also been itching to fight. Will Roddy be more than ready for the Sussex County Chicken?

The bell rings and the fans rally for “I-SHI-I! I-SHI-I!” as he circles with Roddy. They tie up, go around, and Ishii puts Roddy on ropes. The ref counts, Ishii lets off slowly, but Roddy CHOPS!

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

Battle of the Belts returns for the 11th edition, following live after Collision! What championships will be on the line as AEW continues towards All In?

 

Dustin Rhodes & The Von Erichs speak.

Kevin Von Erich says it is so great to be here in Texas with his sons and his friend. This is a great night. Kevin remembers working with Dusty, and he learned so much from him. There will never be another like him. Wrestling is changing, there are a lot of differences. Dustin knows, he’s been here a long time, so he can be a real benefit to Marshall & Ross. Dustin thanks Kevin, and says he watched Kevin for years, learned so much from his own father, and he is sure the storm has arrived. One of the greatest wrestling legacies right here in Texas! The Von Erichs, the Rhodes, together for the first time since 1978!

Dustin looks forward to this, and promises that if they listen and watch, they’ll head down a path that is already great. They’ve seen this trio in action before, so believe him when he says, Dustin’s got your back. Will Dustin & The Von Erichs make a natural fit here in AEW?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now here we are in the Dog Days of Summer 2024, it’s hot as balls outside, and lemme tell you what else is heating up, the schedule for the ROH World Champion. Got a busy week next week. Next Friday, right here in Arlington, Texas, it’s ROH Death Before Dishonor, Mark Briscoe, Roderick Strong, for the ROH World title!” Mark tells Roddy that they’ve known each other a good long time now, came up in the game together. But Mark warns Roddy, Mark’s gotten wiser since last time. He’s gotten tougher since the last time! So Roddy better be ready! That’s Friday!

But after Friday, one thing’s for certain is that two days ago it was Wednesday! And let’s talk about Wednesday! Blood & Guts! Nashville, Tennessee! Team AEW VS The Elite. Let’s explain something to The Elite: pro-wrestling runs parallel to society in so many ways. And The Elite is the perfect example of what is wrong in the world today. They’re powerful, privileged, and they think they can step on the little man, step on the grind. But Team AEW represents the grind worldwide! Bring yo’ ass, because Mark will be disappointed if they don’t bring the fight! Let’s get violent, baby! RARARARA!

 

Lumberjack match: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

La Mera Mera has been daring The Virtuosa to just bring the fight so they can settle this, and she finally got Deonna to accept this fight! With the AEW Women’s Division surrounding the ring, will there be no running and hiding for Deonna now? Or will she still find a way to snatch away this win right out from under Rosa’s nose?

The bell rings, the two run up and start throwing hands! The fans fire up while the lumberjacks egg them on. Rosa puts Deonna on ropes, wrenches an arm, then whips.

Rosa goes up, but Deonna SLAPS her first! Deonna climbs up after Rosa, and she aims for the lumberjacks! SUPERPLEX onto the lumberjacks! The fans fire up as all 20 some odd ladies are down, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Taya and Diamante check on each other, being sometimes teammates and friends. They find Deonna and Rosa in the pile, get them in the ring, and Deonna stalks Rosa. Rosa fires body shots but Deonna fires a forearm! The forearms go back and forth, harder and harder, then Deonna KNEES low! Deonna throws Rosa by her hair, then soaks up the heat. Deonna taunts Rosa, drags her up, and wrenches an arm to YANK it! Deonna wrenches and YANKS the arm again, and then WRINGS it out! Rosa writhes, Deonna covers, TWO!

Vacated Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Championships: The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns didn’t like that AEW management stripped them of these titles just because Jay White got hurt, but they were at least given this title opportunity to win the titles back. Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make The Switchblade proud? Or will Christian Cage and his “sons,” Nick Wayne & Killswitch/Luchasaurus triumph together?

JUICE!” again so Austin tags him in! The fans fire up as Juice and Christian stare down. They circle, but then Christian tags out to Killswitchasaurus. The fans boo but now the dinosaur steps into the ring. The two tie up, Juice puts Luchasaurus in a corner and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Luchasaurus just steps up to Juice. Juice CHOPS again, and again!

Christian promised his family they’d have championships together, and it would seem his promise came true! The lights flicker, but they stay up. Was that just a glitch? Or is there something Christian is overlooking?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision here to start the “Road to Wembley” series in the ESports Stadium. The stage and ramp look great, but this new theme song they’re using instead of Elton John is not a good song. It has like marching band drums but still tries to be rock ‘n’ roll, they need to scrap it and try again. That aside, Darby VS Mortos was a great opener, and Darby of course won to bring momentum into Blood & Guts. Good promo from Darby to officially challenge Jack Perry for the TNT Championship, you can bet that’s happening. A shame for Skye Blue getting hurt tonight, but taking a crossbody from that high up is hard to judge. Hopefully the injury isn’t too severe. But good promo from Shida after to call out Britt, that’ll be a great match for Dynamite.

Great match from Fenix and Nese, and great win for Fenix, even if that was the extent of things. Great debut for Hologram/Holo.grm, formerly Aramis in AAA. He got to show a lot of what he can do, and even then I think there’s even more in his arsenal he held back. Great match from Roddy VS Ishii but I should’ve figured Taven & Bennett would show up to help Roddy win. Mark and Kyle running out there was logical, and no Cassidy was curious. It subtly builds that new moodiness to Cassidy, given he was in his more negative, dark denim and Pixies song mood on Dynamite. But great promo from Mark to hype up Blood & Guts as well as Death Before Dishonor.

Likewise, great promo from The Acclaimed with Billy making them get serious. Angry Acclaimed could make for some interesting stuff, especially if they kept it up towards their title match. Speaking of, FTR had a great promo but them setting a goal for another match with The Bucks at All In, I guess I was right to think that was the plan all along. Battle of the Belts 11 is coming so maybe that’s where we get Bucks VS Acclaimed? If that’s the case, then it feels like a given that Bucks win to go on to All In, which is a shame for The Acclaimed. Very good promo from Jericho to call out Suzuki, though I don’t think it added anything. They’re maybe leaning a little too hard into Jericho always needing TV time no matter the show, but whatever.

Good promo from Dusty & The Von Erichs, but did they really need to wait until AEW was back in Texas to get that trio going again? Well, given who the new trios champs are, I wouldn’t mind seeing Dusty & The Von Erichs going after The Patriarchy, especially with the obvious “Christian can bring up Dusty” promo waiting to be used. The trios championship match was great stuff, and they did a really good job making us think Bang Bang Gang was gonna win. But being Heels, Christian & The Patriarchy of course won via cheating. The flickering lights were a very subtle nod to The House of Black, but I would’ve preferred just a full tease, maybe just The House applauding from the tron and saying they’ll see Christian soon. And with Kip Sabian watching backstage, I feel like maybe Kip is the third man while Buddy Murphy is away.

My Score: 8.8/10

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Arkady Aura is with Saraya & Harley Cameron, and says we haven’t seen Saraya wrestle since her first round loss in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Harley speaks up and asks how that’s supposed to be Saraya’s fault. Why point the finger of blame at her? Maybe it is this company’s fault! Because Saraya has been spending this whole time training, getting “Wembley Ready,” and being an unproblematic icon! Saraya says Harley is right, and do you know why? Because AEW is scared of Saraya. The AEW Women’s Division is scared of her! Because she is the living legend, she understands.

Last year at All In, Saraya had the world at her feet! Now, they’re just keeping her off the show. Harley says doing All In Wembley without Saraya is like doing Beverly Hills Cop without Eddie Murphy! Saraya says yeah, that’s why they’re keeping her away. But they can’t do the show without her because she IS the show. All roads lead to Wembley, baby, and it doesn’t matter who she has to step on to get there. Then just who will The Outcasts take out in order to have their moment?

 

Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Bryan Keith VS The Outrunners!

While The Learning Tree has to defend that “For The World” Championship this Wednesday on Dynamite, he and The Redwood are not shying away from competition. Will Jericho & Bill show the world they’re not afraid of big bad Minoru Suzuki? Or will Turbo Floyd & Truth Magnum be the ones to teach The Learning Tree a thing or two?

The teams sort out and Bill starts against Truth. The fans rally, Truth gets around to headlock, but Bill powers up to TOSS Truth away! Truth flounders to his corner, Turbo tags in, and Turbo steps up to Bill. Jericho isn’t even taking this match seriously, he’s checking his phone!

But then Turbo tags in and The Outrunners DOUBLE CLUB Bill! Bill just frowns…! Bill turns around, he runs up, but The Outrunners dodge to DOUBLE DROPKICK!

Bill stays up but The Outrunners fire up. They spin and handshake, while flexing! Bill frowns, Truth sees and warns Turbo. Turbo looks and Bill DECKS him! Bill DECKS Truth, too! Bill then runs to BOOT Truth out of the ring! Turbo staggers up, Jericho keeps checking his phone, but Turbo CHOPS! Bill sighs and Turbo begs for mercy. Bill puts Turbo in a corner, CHOPS him, then CHOPS again! And he fires off haymaker after haymaker! Bill laughs as he stomps a mudhole into Turbo! The ref counts but Bill keeps going! Bill lets off, laughs some more, and Jericho says look out. Truth CHOPS Bill, but then he begs for forgiveness.

Bill powers Truth to a corner with one hand! Then he runs to SPLASH Turbo! SPLASH for Truth, SPLASH for Turbo! BOOT for Truth, and then Bill choke grips Turbo. SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAM!! And then he tags Jericho! Jericho smirks and waves to the fans. “Hi, guys~!” Cover, Jericho & Bill win!

Winners: Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Bad Apple Keith kicks Truth out of the ring, then he stands tall with his guys. Keith tells the Outrunners to respect Chris Jericho, but he and Bill won’t be around to help Jericho on Wednesday. Will Jericho be able to survive Minoru Suzuki in the shadow of Blood & Guts? Or will Suzuki tear down The Learning Tree #ForTheWorld?

Wait, speaking of Suzuki, here he comes! He has his own match tonight, but he wants to look Jericho in the eye one more time before Dynamite. Will the Meanest Man in the World make an example out of The Butcher?

Minoru Suzuki VS The Butcher!

Rampage returns and The Butcher is already in the ring. The bell rings and Butcher talks some smack on Suzuki. Butcher then fires a forearm, but Suzuki comes back with a forearm of his own. Butcher RAMS Suzuki into a corner, the ref counts, but Butcher lets off at 4. Suzuki eggs Butcher on but Butcher pie faces Suzuki. Butcher dares Suzuki to bring it, so Suzuki fires off fast hands and forearms! Suzuki ROCKS Butcher in the corner, then goes corner to corner, so he can BOOT! Butcher staggers, Suzuki snapmares him, then runs to PENALTY- NO! Butcher blocks the kick! Butcher CLUBS the leg, then trips Suzuki.

Butcher has a standing toehold as he traps one of Suzuki’s legs. Suzuki just eggs Butcher on! Butcher stomps the leg, drops an elbow on it, then he drags Suzuki up. Butcher CLUBS Suzuki, but Suzuki just snarls. Butcher CHOPS, but Suzuki isn’t impressed. Butcher CHOPS again, Suzuki eggs him on, so Butcher fires more CHOPS! Suzuki just laughs! Butcher ROCKS Suzuki, kicks low, then kicks again. Butcher reels Suzuki in to suplex high and hard! Cover, TWO! The fans rally for Suzuki and he fires body shots on Butcher. Suzuki ROCKS Butcher, but Butcher HEADBUTTS! Butcher vows to break Suzuki’s back!

Butcher half nelsons, but Suzuki slips around to waistlock. Butcher elbows free, runs, but Suzuki follows, drop steps to get around, and has the SLEEPER! Suzuki wrangles Butcher, squeezes tight, but Butcher endures. Suzuki spins Butcher around and reels him in, and the fans fire up for the Gotch Lift! Butcher’s big, but Suzuki still lifts him, holds him up, and then PILEDRIVERS!! Cover, Suzuki wins!

Winner: Minoru Suzuki, by pinfall

A gritty fight for Suzuki and Butcher, and this was in a normal match! What won’t Suzuki do to Jericho when it is FTW Rules?

 

The Conglomeration speaks.

Mark Briscoe says, “For those of you who may or may not have been living under a rock for the past couple months, you are looking at the group that has come to be known as The Conglomeration. You know about my main man with the game plan, OC, and Kyle O’Reilly. Let me introduce to you Tomohiro Ishii, henceforth to be known as Big Time! That’s right! Here in The Conglomeration, there is only two rules. First and foremost, you gotta be down to conglomerate. And secondly, you cannot in any way, shape or form, be a s*it head!” Kyle shrugs and nods, because it’s true.

Mark then says that brings us to the word of the day! The word of the day is… Discombobulation! Kyle asks the country of origin. American! Can he use it in a sentence? In the midst of Mark’s discombobulation, Roderick Strong cracked him in the jaw with a knee, and stood over him, holding up Mark’s ROH World Championship high in the air! Now that done pissed Mark off, Roddy! He’s known Roddy a long time, and Roddy knows better than that! So next week, Death Before Dishonor, Mark has something for Roddy!

But before that, tomorrow night’s Collision, #BigTime Ishii is going to take Roddy on 1v1! No Kingdom, no Conglomeration, and damn sure no Don Callis Family at ringside! Roddy VS Ishii, and we’ll show y’all how we do in The Conglomeration! Because they’re ’bout to RARARARARA!! The Chicken is all fired up, but will the Stone Pitbull be able to take a big bite out of the Savior of the Backbreaker?

 

Kris Statlander w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Sydni Winnell!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor knows The Babe with the Power wants payback on her just as badly as she wants to run Willow’s life. But while Willow went and won the CMLL Women’s World Championship, Kris has just been grumbling and plotting with Big Stoke. Will Kris make an example out of Sydni tonight? Or will the Heart of Hutchinson, Kansas be unbreakable?

The bell rings and Kris DISCUS LARIATS right away! Stoke fires up but the fans are torn as Kris hauls Sydni back up. Kris ROCKS Sydni, CHOPS her, then fires off haymakers in the corner! The ref counts, Kris stomps a mudhole in, then she digs her boots in. The ref counts, Kris gets in his face about it, then goes back to Sydni. Kris drags Sydni up to snap suplex! Sydni flounders but Stokely smiles. Kris runs corner to corner, UPPERCUTS, then goes side to side, but Sydni ELBOWS her! Sydni fires forearm snow and has Kris in a corner! The fans fire up, Sydni fires up, and she whips. Kris reverses to then scoop and pop Sydni around!

Kris tucks Sydni in for STATURDAY NIGHT FEVER!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

As Stokely says, every night is #StaturdayNight, especially when Kris wins like that. She has Stoke stand on her while she does push-ups just to show off, but will Kris be ready when Willow returns with a vengeance?

 

Holo.grm loads up.

Whoever this mysterious masked man is, he is ready, and he promises that tomorrow night on Collision, we will see him debut! Will Holo.grm prove to be more than meets the eye?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Collision is already stacked with Strong VS Ishii, Holo.grm’s debut, and the Unified World Trios Championship match, The Patriarchy VS The Bang Bang Gang, but Skye Blue’s challenge to Hikaru Shida has been answered! Will the Shining Samurai cut through the Chicago Skye to find her way back to the top of the ranks? We’ll also see Darby Allin return to action against The Beast Mortis! Will The Relentless One sharpen his edge for Blood & Guts? Plus, the Lumberjack match has been made official! Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo, with other AEW stars all around ringside, will this be where La Mera Mera and The Virtuosa finally settle the score?

 

The Lucha Brothers w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Private Party!

Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix are looking to get in on the tag title chase, but so are Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy. While The Acclaimed still have to shoot their shot at The Young Bucks, which team will be waiting for them on the other side?

The teams sort out and Fenix starts against Brother Zay. The fans rally, Zay offers a handshake, and Fenix takes it. But then Fenix ROCKS Zay!

Zay steps over, GAMANGIRI! Zay runs, but Fenix pops him up, only for Zay to RANA! Zay whips, Fenix reverses but Zay reverses back.

Quen steps up to Penta, and Penta says uno momento. Penta dramatically takes off his glove, but Quen says no, let him. “SHOTS! SHOTS!” Penta says okay, listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Quen, so Quen comes back to say “SHOTS!” “CERO! MIEDO!” “SHOTS!” They go back and forth, taunt for taunt, then Penta CHOPS! Quen is stinging but he composes himself. Quen comes back, CHOPS, but that hurts his hand more than it does Penta’s body! Penta says okay, and he unbuttons Quen’s shirt, to CHOP him down! The fans fire up with Penta as he does a “SHOTS! SHOTS!” dance! So Quen returns to fire forearms!

Quen ROCKS Penta, runs, but Penta SUPERKICKS! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs but Quen BOOTS him down! Quen nods, runs up, but DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Both men stay up, Penta blocks a kick to HEEL KICK, only for Quen to ROUNDHOUSE back! Both men wobble, then they DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE! Both men fall and the fans fire back up! Quen and Penta crawl, hot tags to Zay and Fenix! Fenix ROCKS Zay, Zay ROCKS Fenix, and Fenix fires off a strike fest! Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” But Zay wrenches out to facelock back!

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

Private Party put up a fight to be sure, but Penta y Fenix just wanted it that much more! Will the Lucha Brothers be watching Blood & Guts very, very closely?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of Rampage here, and even the squash matches served some purpose. Kris crushing Sydni was mostly for momentum, but it felt like that was the first real showing of Kris’ Heel attitude with her trash talking the whole time. Jericho letting Bill do all the work against The Outrunners was naturally how that match was going, but it works perfectly in character and story for them. And Jericho crossing paths with Suzuki before Suzuki puts Butcher away rather quickly was good, too. The go home math is therefore even ahead of their FTW Championship match, but I wonder if Jericho was texting someone who could interfere for him since Keith & Bill can’t. But it can’t be Jeff Cobb, though, he’s locked in for NJPW’s G1 Climax.

Very good promo from The Outcasts, and while Toni Storm VS Mariah May is one title match and Mercedes Mone VS Britt Baker is another, Saraya could end up putting out an open challenge and it is answered by someone big from Stardom or CMLL for a first-time-ever kind of match to make All In even more historic. Great tag team main event from Lucha Brothers VS Private Party, with it mostly being for momentum. Private Party has finally been back on track now that both guys are healthy, but Lucha Bros winning out made sense. Penta & Fenix have been great as a team and as individuals, they’re both primed to take on just about any team or even singles champs if needed.

And great opener from The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom, even though I’m surprised they did such a Six Man Tag already. The Conglomeration winning could still feed into my idea that Cassidy & Kyle get an ROH Tag Team Championship match at Death Before Dishonor, but it also gives us a reason for Ishii VS Roddy tomorrow night. Great promo from Mark Briscoe in that, too, he continues to be one of the best underappreciated promo guys in all of wrestling today. I feel like Mark is going to retain the title against Roddy given how Shane Taylor is gunning for Mark, but that really depends on if Tony Khan is even paying attention to his own shows.

My Score: 8.7/10
