PLAY BY PLAY

SmackDown opens with the Kevin Owens Show!

“Now that the dust has settled and everyone has fulfilled their contractual obligations, we’re good right? Everybody’s where they’re supposed to be?” Then Kevin is excited to welcome us to the KO Show on his new home, Friday Night SmackDown! The ThunderDome is fired up for Kevin’s first guest on this special SmackDown KO Show. It’s the four-time WWE champion and most technically skilled competitor to ever step into the ring, it is… DANIEL BRYAN! The Yes Movement leader heads to the ring and the ThunderDome echoes the “YES! YES! YES!” Kevin and Bryan take a seat and Bryan loves the set-up.

Firstly, Kevin thanks Bryan for accepting the invitation. Second, he wants to thank Bryan for the superstars he’s looking forward to facing, because Kevin feels the same. These two have beaten the hell out of each other, but that’s part of it. They push each other. That is what Bryan wants from every superstar on SmackDown. A great opinion to have, and Bryan has been very vocal about his opinion. What exactly does he see for SmackDown’s future? Bryan wants SmackDown to highlight the absolute best in the world. And this roster now nails that! They have the best fresh, young talent in the world! Even people who stepped up before the draft! Big E, Jey Uso, Bryan wants to see who is next!

But on a more personal note, one thing that would make SmackDown better for everyone is to have a championship defended each and every week, and that championship should be the Intercontinental Championship. Bryan wants to see that title on the line every week! A great idea, too! Kevin is flattered that Bryan is suggesting him for such a role. Kevin asked Bryan here for that reason, to talk about championships, and even more specifically… the SmackDown Tag Teams Championships! Can you believe Kevin’s never been a tag team champion in the WWE? Yeah, Kevin’s betrayed a lot of his friends… Well, we’ll gloss over that. But Kevin knows where Bryan is going, but he’s thinking about the wrong part. Imagine them as a team! Kevin already has a name: Team Hell KO. No that’d be if he teamed with Kane. That’s the hell part. Oh, of course. But Kevin and Bryan would be a great team! Even better than Hell No!

But now Dolph Ziggler and Robert Roode interrupt!? Ziggler hears Bryan talking about hot, fresh, young talent, so he couldn’t be talking about anyone else but these two. Hot for teacher, baby! Kev, c’mon. Ziggler and Roode love to party, run with the devil. Kevin’s having a party and didn’t invite them? C’mon. Roode says Kevin is talking about a fantasy tag team when they should be talking about two of the best SmackDown acquisitions ever, and one of the best tag teams ever! But here come the SmackDown Tag Team Champions, the Street Profits! They make it rain Solo cups and are fired up to start Friday night partying! Especially with these two acting like they’re the new hires. Please, y’all looked like you stepped out of 1984. Uh, the greatest album of all time? Thank you! Hey, Ziggler, the Profits didn’t forget what they were doing last week.

But nonetheless, the Profits are so excited to be on Friday Night SmackDown! Why? The Profits are up, and #WeWantTheSmoke! But here come Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro! “Surprise, surprise.” So much disrespect in the face of the two men who have carried SmackDown’s tag division for MONTHS. New Day steals the titles, and then hand them over to the Profits like a game of White Elephant. Bryan tells Kevin they can test that tag team theory of his, right now! They and the Profits start brawling with the Glorious Show-Offs and the former champions! The bell rings to try and stop this, and here comes Adam Pearce with the cavalry! Will this be sorted out after SmackDown goes to break?

SmackDown presents: Law & Otis.

“In the WWE Justice System, superstars are generally represented by attorneys. Except for Otis, who has decided to represent himself. This is his story.” DUN DUN! Otis, The Miz and John Morrison finally take the issue of the Money in the Bank briefcase to court! And it’s the APA presiding! Ron “Farooq” Simmons is the bailiff, and “the honorable” John Bradshaw Layfield is the judge! “For the record, in this case, the plaintiff, Mr. Mizanin, is suing the defendant, Otis, for emotional distress, wanton destruction of property, creating an unsafe work environment, and MITB negligence.” With that said, counselor, proceed with opening arguments. Miz has his lawyer stand down so that he can speak.

“Your honor, I am here for the truth.” Case law is on Miz’s side. He can site Intic VS Carrington. Shmuck VS United States. Marbury VS Madison. But more importantly, the truth is on Miz’s side! The truth is, Otis has victimize Miz both physically and emotionally. He has not upheld the responsibilities of being Mr. MITB. As a former Mr. MITB, it is Miz’s duty to right this wrong and lawfully remove the contract from Otis’ possession to place in the hands of an honorable superstar: The Miz. That is the truth. DUN DUN. Well said, bro. JBL gives Otis his chance to speak. Otis says that he deserves the MITB contract because he won the match. Thank you. DUN DUN. Wait that’s all? It was a good argument, though… You’re fired, Sharon. To be continued later tonight!

 

Bryan, Kevin and the Profits are fired up backstage!

They won together and now they celebrate together! Bryan says that was RAD! He’s up with the smoke! Fist him, boys! Um… Bryan, no, that’s… But bro fist is fine! The Profits head out, Kevin goes with them, and Bryan says SmackDown is the best! Sami Zayn comes over and congratulates Bryan. Is his leg okay? Yeah, he’s good. Sami wants to say before this goes any further, how Bryan was kinda badmouthing him on the KO Show. Bryan kept going on about how the Intercontinental Championship should be defended every week, Sami will stop him right there. Sami will say again that he does NOT share that vision. This title is important, valuable and Sami’s, so he dictates the terms on how often and against who he defends it. And he already has against some of the best, which includes Bryan at WrestleMania.

So going forward, whatever vision Bryan has for the title, keep them to yourself. Because as long as Sami is champion, Sami will do things his way. Sami leaves, but is Bryan going to find a way to make his vision a reality?

 

Bianca Belair VS ???

The EST of WWE is the strongEST, fastEST, roughEST, toughEST, smartEST, and tonight, the readiEST for action! Will Bianca start her rise towards the SmackDown Women’s Championship tonight?

SmackDown returns and Bianca’s opponent is Zelina Vega! There’s history here from Monday Night Raw and how these two, alongside the Street Profits and the former team of Andrade Almas and Angel Garza, fought back and forth. Will things continue as they did on Raw? Or will La Muneca ruin Bianca’s Friday night debut?

The bell rings, the two tie up, Bianca powers Zelina to a corner but Zelina goes up the buckles. Zelina is on the top rope, Bianca lets off and Zelina SLAPS her! Bianca grabs Zelina’s hair! And then brings her off with a TOSS! Bianca claps back at Zelina literally, and then says, “Girl. Uh-uh.” But Zelina kicks back! Zelina baits Bianca in to tweak the arm! Then wrenches to a wristlock, but Bianca scoops and SLAMS her! Bianca stomps Zelina, whips her but Zelina ducks and dodges and tilt-o-whirls, but Bianca handsprings through! Bianca comes back to run Zelina over! Bianca walks all over Zelina to then standing moonsault! And kip up! Bianca says “Kiss this,” but Zelina goes to the apron. Zelina holds the apron skirt as Bianca drags her in. Zelina finally lets go but kicks back, then rolls to KICK again! And again!

Zelina has Bianca in a corner to rocket kick her! Zelina goes up, leaps, flying huricanrana! Bianca flounders, Zelina comes back but the flip is blocked to a pop-up RIGHT HAND! Bianca looms over Zelina, Zelina begs for mercy but Bianca dead lifts a la clean ‘n jerk! And then trophy lifts, carriers Zelina around, and drops her on the buckles! Bianca brings Zelina back up, torture rack, K O D! Cover, Bianca wins!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall

The Kiss of Death was the end for this match, but will Bianca start blazing the hottEST trail to the championship?

 

Lars Sullivan VS Chad Gable!

Before The Freak heads to the ring, Shorty G is asked what compelled him to accept a match with a superstar that has only brought carnage since his return? Gable says he is fed up with things right now. He couldn’t get drafted by Raw or SmackDown, what’s going on here? That is blatant disrespect! So naturally, it is up to him to right the ship, he’s calling out the big man to turn this right around. Gable’s going to prove he belongs! But will Gable find he would’ve been better off taking tonight off?

The bell rings and Gable circles with Lars. Gable dodges Lars, goes up top and leaps, into Lars’ arms and FALL AWAY SLAM! Lars laughs as he stalks over to Gable. Lars looms over Gable, drags him up and whips him, for a MILE HIGH FLAPJACK! Lars laughs more as he watches Gable writhe. Lars drags Gable up, scoops him, but Gable rakes eyes to get free! Gable throws a throat chop! And clubs Lars on the back! Gable runs corner to corner to ROLLING KICK! And then another, only to be sent into buckles! Lars snarls, roars, and TOSSES Gable across the ring! Lars drags Gable up, reels him in and CLOBBERS him! Lars is only getting angrier as he drags Gable back up, for the FREAK ACCIDENT! Cover, Lars wins!

Winner: Lars Sullivan, by pinfall

Shorty G aimed high but came crashing down! Will Lars look to lay waste to the entire SmackDown roster? Kayla Braxton asks Gable feels now after that match. “I… I quit…” Gable quits SmackDown?! But then where is he going to go?

 

Backstage interview with Seth Rollins.

Tonight, he and his former disciple, Buddy Murphy, settle things after Murphy got in on the fun- Fun? No, that was “fun.” His disciple, the guy he plucked from obscurity and guided through life, disrespected and assaulted him. But Rollins will have fun doing what he does tonight. He asked for this match for a reason. Murphy, like many, is confused. His emotions are tearing him apart, and Rollins understands. But what Murphy and everyone else needs to understand, the greater good is all of us! We all have a role, Murphy has his. Rollins is the messiah, Murphy is the disciple. Rollins is the savior, Murphy is a follower. There’s no shame in that. Tonight, Rollins will define Murphy’s role for him. Now that sounds fun, doesn’t it?

 

Roman Reigns tries to eat, but is not hungry.

The bread, the fruits, none of it is appetizing right now. That’s because he is preoccupied with business tonight, as he will finally issue the consequences for his match with Jey Uos. What will the Tribal Chief add to the already brutal combination of an I Quit match inside a Hell in a Cell?!

 

Adam Pearce checks on Shorty G in the trainer’s room.

Pearce wants him to reconsider saying he quit. But Gable said he quit, because he quits being Shorty G! He’s done being a character talking about accepting who you are and how it’ll all be fine. He doesn’t accept this crap! He’s done being a “smarmy little punching bag” and a happy face on top of every little PSA! It’s a joke! “Just accept who you are and you can achieve anything you are!” Who are we kidding? Not everyone can achieve everything, and neither can Shorty G. The only man who can will be the Olympian, the state, national and world champion collegiate wrestler, with a list of achievements so big it has to be seen to be believed. Trust him, it’s long. That man is Chad Gable! No more nicknames and no more games! Will Gable show us how to get things done?

 

Bayley is in the ring!

The SmackDown Women’s Champion is already seated in that chair, with belt in one hand and mic in the other. “I’m feeling really annoyed that I even have to come out here and address this tonight.” But today, she did four interviews. And instead of them appreciating their time with her, they asked the same dumb questions about Sasha Banks! Bayley can’t get away from Sasha! “Why are you hesitating? What is it going to take for you to sign the contract? Are you afraid?” No she’s not afraid! Sasha doesn’t deserve this! Sasha is an ungrateful brat and Bayley won’t give her what she wants. Bayle did what she did in walking out because she wants to be done with Sasha. But now Sasha is a bigger pain in the ass than before! Sasha even said, and Bayley quotes, “I am Sasha Banks. And my name is bigger than your title.”

PFFFT! Really?! Bayley doesn’t think so. Sasha is getting so conceited that her head won’t fit inside of the cell! But that doesn’t matter because Bayley did not and will not sign, so burn the contract! Sasha likes to say she’s The Boss, but DING DONG, HELLO! You are not the boss of Bayley! But here comes Sasha! And she has the contract in her hand! Sasha heads to the ring with it, Bayley says she’s still not signing, but Sasha tells her to. Bayley doesn’t do what Sasha tells her. Sasha says Bayley started this and Sasha is going to end it. Bayley grabs her chair! Sasha ducks that to grab the belt Bayley left behind! Bayley wants the belt back. Sign the contract. Give her the belt. Sign the contract. Fine. But Bayley grabs at the belt, and gets a KNEE to the head for it!

Sasha grabs the chair! And puts it around Bayley’s head! Sasha says Bayley is going to sign or else! Bayley kicks Sasha away! Bayley gets up, but she’s still in the chair! Sasha puts the BANK STATEMENT on with the CHAIR included!! Bayley refuses to sign but Sasha cranks back harder! Bayley gives in and signs on the dotted line! Sasha lets go, and then KICKS Bayley down! NOW it’s official, and it’s happening this Sunday! “On Sunday, I’m going to take your title, and I am going to finish what you started.” Sasha has issued her ultimatum. Will Bayley’s first match inside the cell be her last as champion?

 

SmackDown presents Law & Otis, part 2.

Miz has Morrison as his witness on the stand. Morrison says Otis assaulted Miz, and him, and a lot of people. “It’s hard to put into words the trauma that we’ve endured.” It isn’t so much the physical scars, but the emotional ones. DUN DUN. Miz gives Morrison a handkerchief to wipe the tears. But to counter, Otis calls REY MYSTERIO to the stand! Mysterio was in the MITB Corporate Ladder match with Otis. Eight walked in, only one walked out, and that was Otis. As far as Mysterio is concerned, Otis is the rightful owner. DUN DUN. Asuka is also a witness for the defense as she talks to her role in the Corporate Ladder match. But it’s hard to keep up with her fast Japanese. But again, she won like Otis won, so the point is, Otis should stay Mr. MITB. JBL asks if the court stenographer got that. Every single word, playa. TEDDY LONG!? DUN DUN!

Tucker appears! He is Otis’ best friend. And while Otis may not be as educated as some, the big man is sensitive. Miz crossed the line taking Otis’ girlfriend, Mandy, and trading her to Raw. Miz deserves everything that’s come his way. Permission to treat the witness as hostile. JBL was hoping for that. Miz counters Tucker by saying he says Miz deserved emotional distress, unsafe work environment AND destruction of property caused by Otis?! Yes. Then isn’t it true that during this time, Otis NEGLECTED the contract? What does that even mean!? ANSWER THE QUESTION! All Tucker knows is that ever since Miz started messing with Otis, all Otis can focus on is beating the crap out of Miz. And now that Tucker thinks about it, he wants to beat Miz up right NOW! DUN DUN!

Miz hurries away and Otis tells Tucker to stand down. Order in the court!! Ron tells them all to shut up! DUN DUN. Let’s take a short recess. And when we reconvene, Judge JBL will render the verdict. Teddy’s gotta pee, playa. Be right back. DUN DUN. To be continue in part 3!

 

SmackDown returns with Law & Otis, part 3!

Judge JBL returns and everyone takes their seats. “In all of this legal uproar, something is missing. And that something IS the truth.” JBL is supposed to believe Otis is responsible for emotional distress, destruction of property and creating an unsafe working environment? He’s a WWE superstar. That’s the job description. if those are crimes, APA would be serving life sentences. And Miz’s accusations of negligence, while it is true Otis has yet to cash in the MITB contract, that is NOT negligence. It is established in the contract that the winner has a full year to cash in. DUN DUN. Why does that keep happening? But after deliberation, JBL will rule in favor of- Miz wants one more second. He forgot to submit a key piece of evidence. Miz is lucky JBL has let him interrupt this entire trial. Yes, but JBL should really admit this evidence. DUN DUN.

JBL has Bailiff Simmons retrieve this leather briefcase Miz has and bring it to the bench. Inside the briefcase is… A HUGE AMOUNT OF CASH!! JBL smirks. “In light of the new evidence, I have no recourse but to side in favor of the plaintiff, the Miz.” WHAT?! Otis must appear at HIAC this Sunday to compete in a match with The Miz. The winner then will receive and keep the MITB contract. Court adjourned. The Miz abuses the system, and all Simmons can say is, “DAMN!” Will Otis still be able to tip the scales of justice in his favor now that he can legally get his hands on Miz and beat him up?

 

Seth Rollins VS Buddy Murphy!

Monday Night Messiah no more, this is SmackDown’s Savior that heads to the ring! But will he “define” Murphy’s future in their Friday night in-ring debuts?

SmackDown returns as Murphy makes his entrance. Aalyah Mysterio is watching backstage as Murphy gets in the ring. The bell rings, Murphy glares at Rollins as Rollins smirks. They tie up, go around and end up on ropes. Murphy puts Rollins in a corner but Rollins turns it around. The ref counts, Rollins lets off and reminds Murphy, “Messiah. Disciple.” Rollins pokes Murphy in the head, but Murphy comes back with another tie-up! Murphy puts Rollins in the corner again, Rollins turns things around again, but Murphy turns it back! The ref counts, Murphy lets off, but Rollins pushes him. “What don’t you understand, Murphy!?” Another poke in the head, but Murphy grins as he grabs the arm and yanks and yanks! Murphy grinds Rollins down and grinds him into the mat!

Rollins endures, fights up but Murphy wrenches. Rollins wrenches back, yanks and wristlocks, but Murphy rolls and handsprings to wrench back. Rollins wrenches, Murphy spins and headlocks to the takeover but Rollins headscissors back. Murphy pops out, Rollins ROCKS him! Rollins drags Murphy up, headlocks and takeover again, but Murphy keeps shoulders up. Murphy pushes back with forearms and gets up, but Rollins holds on as Murphy tries to power out. Murphy fights up again, powers out this time, but Rollins runs him over! Rollins runs, Murphy stays low then hurdles over but Rollins grabs ropes. Rollins laughs at Murphy and shouts, “When are you going to learn?” Rollins pushes Murphy but Murphy DECKS Rollins!

Rollins is furious as he gets up and swings on Murphy. Murphy dodges, huricanranas and sends Rollins out! Murphy runs, slides, but Rollins gets under. Rollins runs, but is back dropped onto the announce desk! Rollins tumbles down as SmackDown goes to break!

SmackDown returns again and Murphy punches but Rollins knees low. Rollins whips, runs in but Murphy elbows back! Murphy goes up, brings Rollins in, tornado hotshot! Rollins is down, Murphy goes back up but Rollins trips him up! Murphy tumbles down to the floor, Aalyah grows concerned for Murphy, but the family finds her. Why is she watching this? She’s just watching Murphy! She can watch who she wants! Rollins puts Murphy back in as Rey and Dominik want Alayah to leave. Rollins fireman’s carries and GUT BUSTERS Murphy! Cover, TWO! Rollins grows frustrated and he drags Murphy into a bearhug. Murphy endures, fights up, powers Rollins to a corner, but Rollins squeezes tighter. Murphy keeps ramming Rollins into buckles, but Rollins throws him in! Rollins runs in but Murphy BOOTS him away!

Murphy goes up and missile dropkicks! Rollins flounders but both men are down. The two stir and stand, Murphy rallies with clotheslines! Murphy dodges and calf kicks on the rebound! Murphy kips up, throws Rollins out, then wrecks him with a dropkick! Murphy builds speed and this time he FLIES! Direct hit at the ramp! Both men are down, the ring count begins but Murphy is up at 4 to put Rollins in at 5. Murphy climbs up top at 6, Rollins stands but Murphy gets him with METEORA! But Murphy can’t cover, his own arm might’ve landed bad! Cover, TWO!! Rollins and Murphy flounder around and Rollins gets to ropes. Murphy hurries after, going to the outside. Murphy works to put his shoulder back in, but Rollins runs to DIVE! Direct hit sends Murphy into barriers!

Rollins puts Murphy in, springboards and FLYING KNEES! Cover, TWO!! Murphy is still in this and Rollins is shocked! Murphy rolls out to the apron but Rollins is on him! Rollins drags Murphy up, wrenches and WRINGS the arm out into the apron! Aalyah is concerned and the Mysterios themselves aren’t sure what to think. Murphy is down and SmackDown goes to another break.

SmackDown returns again and Rollins has Murphy up top. Murphy resists, throws body shots, and then adjusts to sunset flip! Rollins holds on, Murphy lets go to tuck Rollins in, CHEEKY NANDOS! Murphy gets Rollins off the top, but his body gives out! Rollins drags Murphy up, to BUCKLE BOMB! Murphy is down, Rollins runs, but into a KNEE TRIGGER! Both men are down again! Murphy crawls to a cover, TWO!! Rollins still lives! Murphy crawls to a corner while Rollins checks his jaw. Murphy hobbles over, Rollins elbows him back! Rollins snarls, slaps Murphy and says he has disrespected Rollins. Rollins slaps him around, drags him up, and says, “I am the Messiah, YOU are the disciple!” He DECKS Murphy, then demands he get up! Murphy does stand, and DECKS Rollins in return!

Rollins gets up, he ROCKS Murphy! Murphy stands to ROCK Rollins! They go back and forth, Murphy gets the edge, fires off a strike fest but Rollins blocks momentarily. Murphy keeps going, misses the knee thrust, PELE! Murphy rebounds but cradle counters, TWO!! ROLLING ELBOW from Rollins! FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! Murphy survives and Rollins is seething! Rollins pushes past Murphy and says, “You’re gonna learn, Murphy. One way or another.” Rollins aims from the corner as Murphy rises. CURB- NO! Murphy rolls Rollins, avoids another stomp and shoves him! Rollins elbows back, climbs up top, but Murphy enziguris first! Murphy drags Rollins off the top, but Rollins slits put and wrenches to wring out the arm! CURB STOMP!! Cover, Rollins wins!

Winner: Seth Rollins, by pinfall

But the lesson is not over! Rollins gets a kendo stick! Aalyah begs Rey and Dom do something to help Murphy, but they refuse. This is not their business. If they’re not going to, then SHE will! Aalyah runs off, referees tell Rollins to stop but he refuses. Rollins is in the ring, with the kendo stick, and he tells Murphy he’s going to learn to stay behind the savior! “Nobody has your back!” But here comes Aalyah! Rollins laughs. What is she going to do? Where’s her back-up? Rollins SMACKS away on Murphy! Aalyah gets in the ring to shield Murphy, but here comes Dom! Rollins leaves now, and Dom can’t believe what Aalyah is doing! This is not their business anymore! Rollins CLOBBERS Dom from behind! Rollins still hates the Mysterios, but here comes REY! WITH A CHAIR!

Rollins bails out, and Rey check son his son and daughter, not Murphy. They keep trying to reason with her, and now Dom and Rey argue about if Aalyah should even be here. Aalyah helps Murphy up, and brother and father don’t understand. What is happening with this triangle of Rollins, Murphy and Mysterio family?

 

A SmackDown staffer knocks on Roman Reigns’ door.

But it’s Paul Heyman that answers. Apologies, but it is time for Roman’s segment. No, it’s Roman’s time when Roman says. Heyman will go talk with Roman, and we’ll see if the champ is ready. Will the Tribal Chief be ready to issue his edict after the break?

 

Roman Reigns heads to the ring!

It seems he did deem it the right time. The WWE Universal Champion and his Special Counsel in Paul Heyman are here as Roman holds that title overhead. Heyman gets the mic to hand it to Roman. But Jey interrupts the Tribal Chief via titantron! He’s in the VIP suite, looking at the Tribal Cheese, the Tribal Berries, and some ice cold H2O. It must be great to be chief. Or maybe it’s better to be the cousins of the chief. At least, it was. Roman changed. Roman has his head so far up his chief ass that he’s lost connection with himself and his family. But who is he to say? Because This isn’t Jey, it’s JIMMY!! And Jey’s right there! Jey attacks Roman and rains down hands! Roman pushes him away, runs in at him but Jey POSTS Roman first! Jey goes out to grab a chair! And he brings it in to swing, but into a BOOT!

Roman gets the chair while Jey flounders! Jey gets up to SUPERKICK back!! Jey goes up top, and leaps, USO SPLASH! The Usos used twin magic to get the better of the “chief,” but it won’t be a match won with splashes and pinfalls! Will Jey be able to push Roman to the edge and make him say two words we’ve never heard? Heyman gets Roman the mic, because he still has to say what he came here to say! “It’s all just games, huh? It’s funny to you boys, because you don’t understand. I understand.” If Roman quits, he isn’t champion, face of the WWE, head of the table or Tribal Chief, and therefore is not the provider for generations of their bloodline! If they make Roman quit.

But the question is, can they? Because when Roman makes Jey quit, and he will make Jey quit… Jey will fall in line, take his orders, and acknowledge him and respect him for who he is in the WWE and all that he does for the family! And if he still can’t, then Jey is OUT of the family. Jimmy is in this now, too. Their wives, their children, their children’s children, are ALL disowned!! “We will all turn our backs on you. Those are your consequences.” The cell lowers to show what Roman is ready for, and what Jey must prepare for. But Jey IS ready, as he climbs the outside to stare Roman down! Will the Usos be exiled from the Anoa’i Dynasty when Jey can’t endure it anymore?


My Thoughts:

What a great episode, though it could’ve been greater. To start, I was hoping Sasha was going to rough Bayley up even worse than she did to make her sign the contract, maybe draw some blood. Maybe they’re saving that for the match. And then, while I’ve never really referred to him as Shorty G in matches, I’m glad that is done with for Chad Gable. He might even be turning Heel now after getting whooped by Lars like that. Opening with the KO Show was good, but I was really surprised that Kevin suggested to Bryan they try to be tag partners. Bryan was of course surprised, too, but they and the Profits had a great 8 Man with Cesaro, Nakamura, Roode and Ziggler.

Sami getting in Bryan’s face later is good, I think mingling the stories of Sami and the IC title with Kevin wanting the tag titles to complete his grand slam with Bryan stuck in the middle is great. Was kinda hoping Sami and Kevin would’ve been tag champions the last time they were all on SmackDown a year or so ago, but maybe a twist or swerve can make that happen this time. Bianca had a good match with Zelina but it seemed a shame it was so easy for Bianca to win. Maybe after Bayley VS Sasha, Bianca goes after whoever the champion is and we get some great promo banter on top of great in-ring action.

The “Law & Otis” segments were funny, and it was great to see Teddy Long and the APA back, but of course this turns into Otis VS Miz, MITB briefcase on the line. I hope Otis wins that just to shut Miz up, but at the same time, with both WWE World and WWE Universal championships on the line, there’s a good chance Miz wins to try and cash in on McIntyre to start a feud there. Maybe Tucker and Mandy get involved since this story involves them, too. Rollins VS Murphy was a great match, especially because it went so long. There was still the Mysterio family drama, which is fine because slowly, it is being what turned Murphy back to Face. It’s a bit of a shame nothing was set for HIAC, but perhaps Rey being at only 99% isn’t enough for WWE just yet. I hope things get settled before Survivor Series because this feud has been one of the longest all year, and a winner needs to be named to move up to a title.

And speaking of title, this has probably been the best thing WWE has done with the Universal Championship ever. Roman, Jey and Jimmy are all on point with their characters. Granted, I figured that was a twin magic trick when “Jey” was wearing hat and bandanna mask indoors, but it worked so perfectly because it’s the Usos. Jey getting the jump on Roman was great, but then Roman giving us the consequences was great, too. It made a lot of sense for the Usos’ consequences to be falling in line, and possibly being excommunicated. I don’t think Jey is winning the title, and yet I don’t know how well they’ll “fall in line” or how even the “excommunication” story will go. It’s all very unpredictable and that makes it very interesting. Rollins talks about being the messiah/savior of WWE, but I feel like this story right here is what is saving SmackDown.

My Score: 8.5/10

AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ospreay stands, slips around to backslide, TWO!! MJF escapes again, to headlock takeover and cover, TWO as Ospreay headscissors! MJF moves around, bridges to a cover, TWO as Ospreay bridges out! A spin and backslide, TWO!! MJF whips, Ospreay swings but MJF gets under! Ospreay leaps, into the POWER BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!!! The fans are electric again as both men are down! The fans sing for Ospreay as he crawls to a corner. MJF sits up then rises up to soak up heat. MJF hits the kangaroo stance?! The fans are torn, surely he isn’t serious. But then MJF runs up, KANGAROO- NO! Ospreay catches MJF!

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

Ospreay blocks a kick but MJF pokes him in the eyes! MJF flips everyone off, but Ospreay HOOK KICKS him! MJF rebounds to ROCK Ospreay! Ospreay rebounds to BOOT MJF! MJF rebounds to ROLLING ELBOW!

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

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

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

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

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

 

“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

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

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

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

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

 

The Elite speak.

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

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

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

 

AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Jack Perry speaks.

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

 

Toni Storm is here!

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

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

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

 

AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

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

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

 

Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana VS Kazuchika Okada!

It is a Champion VS Champion showdown to close this milestone episode, but no titles are on the line. However, Blood & Guts is just next week, and each side is looking for momentum. Will Little Rock belong to Swerve’s House? Or will The Rainmaker prove he’s the top champion in AEW?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The two tie up, Okada headlocks for the takeover but Swerve headscissors. Okada kips free, roles reverse, but then Okada headscissors. Swerve kips free, blocks the takeover this time, and he brings Okada up to power out. Okada avoids the hurdle, BOOTS back, then runs. Swerve rolls to trip Okada, then runs. Okada avoids the House Call, waistlocks then ripcords, but Swerve ducks the lariat! Swerve half nelsons but Okada fights out!

Swerve slips free, Okada runs up, but Swerve goes up and over to roll Okada up. Okada rolls through but Swerve EDDY GORDO RANAS! The fans fire up, Swerve runs to UPPERCUT Okada! Swerve snapmares Okada, goes up and FALLING UPPERCUTS! Swerve hits the Griddy and fans cheer! Swerve even mocks the Rainmaker pose! Okada sits up and glares at Swerve. Swerve eggs Okada on, so Okada ROCKS him! Swerve ROCKS Okada back!

The forearms go back and forth, then they pick up speed! Okada dares Swerve to hit him, so Swerve kicks low! Swerve whips, Okada reverses to then FLAPJACK! Swerve tumbles out of the ring but Okada pursues. Okada runs up to kick and DDT to the floor! Swerve writhes and Okada just watches him while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ring count climbs, but Okada drags Swerve up. Okada brings Swerve over, SMACKS him off steps, and he stalks Swerve around the way. Okada SMACKS Swerve off the steps again! Okada refreshes the count, then pursues Swerve. Swerve rolls into the ring but Okada drags him out. Okada RAMS Swerve into the barriers! The fans are torn but Okada just goes back into the ring. Swerve rolls in, Okada drags him up, but Swerve fires body shots! Swerve shoves Okada, fireman’s carries, but Okada fights free to go for an arm! Then he hits a NECKBREAKER! Okada watches Swerve flounder away, then storms up on him.

Okada brings Swerve up but Swerve pushes him into a corner. Okada CLUBS Swerve down, whips corner to corner hard, and Swerve falls to his knees. Okada runs in to ELBOW Swerve, and Swerve falls again. Okada rests against ropes, taking Swerve a little lightly here, but he goes back over. Okada brings Swerve up to ROCK him, then UPPERCUT him! Swerve goes to a corner, but he fires forearms in return! Okada eggs Swerve on, so Swerve fires more shots! Okada UPPERCUTS Swerve again! Swerve drops to his knees, and Okada kicks him. Okada eggs Swerve on, the fans rally up, and Okada scuffs Swerve.

Gator roll to the deadlift and BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Okada survives that and Swerve grows frustrated. Swerve shakes out his arms, then goes to a corner. Okada sits up in a daze but Swerve goes up.

Jack RAMS Darby into railing, Mark returns to help Darby! Security finally separates the factions, which is just fine by The Bucks! But will nothing stop Team AEW from destroying this corrupt Elite once and for all?


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 9.1/10
