The Dark Order’s Alex Reynolds & John Silver VS Lee Johnson & Aaron Solow!

The Beaver Boys haven’t had the best of luck lately, especially considering Number 4 lost at Full Gear. Can they rebound at the expense of Big Shotty and #ExtraTalented?

Usually it’s a one-two combination, but that’s the three-four combo that won it there! Will the Dark Order’s top recruiters at least win matches rather than win people over to their side?

 

Leva Bates is in the library.

She has pictures of when she and Peter Avalon were together. She literally dumps them and quotes “another famous librarian, ‘Testosterone is the great equalizer, and turns all men into morons.'” That theory is true looking over the last few months. “The One and Only Librarian” is something that scared Leva, but now it has liberated her. She can use all the time and energy wasted on Avalon and use it on herself. Now she’ll show the world what she can do, and that knowledge is power! Brainy can be badass, and Leva looks to write her own story in AEW!

 

Trent w/ Chuck Taylor & Orange Cassidy VS Michael Nakazawa!

It may be #JustTrent in the ring right now, but he wants to gain momentum for him and his friends as the war with Miro and Kip Sabian rages on! But will the Turkish Oil Master trip him up here tonight?

The bell rings and Trent doesn’t trust that bulge in Nakazawa’s shorts. Nakazawa says that’s all natural but the ref also suspects it. The ref checks, and yes it is a bottle of body oil. And wait, is there one in Nakazawa’s butt?! YES! Nakazawa is furious that he was found out! Wait… What about his shoes and his knee pads? One in the left knee! That’s three bottles Nakazawa hid! Cassidy will hold onto those, though even that proves difficult, and Trent shoves Nakazawa. Trent wants Nakazawa to take this seriously! Nakazawa fires forearms back so Trent gives him one! Nakazawa gives Trent a PURPLE NURPLE! And another! And a DOUBLE!! The ref says stop, Trent breaks free and kicks Nakazawa back.

Trent swings, Nakazawa dodges and DECKS Trent! Trent flounders to a corner, Nakazawa runs in but is put on the apron.

Winner: Trent, by pinfall

To think Trent would use three knees in a row! But clearly, The Best Man and Superbad have unlocked something in Trent. Will he, Chuckie T and Freshly Squeezed be the ones who win the game against Miro and Kip?

 

Red Velvet VS Tesha Price!

Brandi Rhodes would’ve been out here with the young star if not for that attack by Jade Cargill on Dynamite. But will Velvet still be able to stir it up and make Tesha pay the price?

The bell rings and Price circles with Velvet. They tie up, go around, and then break. Velvet and Price tie up again, go around again, and break again. Fans cheer as the two are evenly matched. Velvet gets around, rolls Price, ONE, but Velvet gets the legs for a figure four then a fast body clutch, TWO! Price arm-drags Velvet, Velvet Japanese arm-drags back, then arm-drags again. Velvet eggs Price on, speeds up and leg lariats Price down! Velvet drags Price up to bump off buckles and throw body shots! Velvet stomps then does the splits while digging her boot in. The ref counts, Velvet lets off to snapmare roll and run, to basement dropkick!

Call that the Shot of Red Velvet, because she just shot down Price! Will Velvet be serving it up hot and fresh for more of the AEW Women’s Division?

 

Alex Marvez interviews Shawn Spears and Tully Blanchard.

He apologizes for interrupting their conversation, but he has been looking for them. He wants to ask about the controversial win over Scorpio Sky. Wow, really? How ballsy of him to open with that question. How about Spears be just as bold, and knock Marvez’s teeth out of his mouth? Tully calms Spears and Spears says there was no “instant replay,” no bullpen, no flags or timeouts. Do they know what it is these two do for a living? Find weaknesses and exploit them. That happens every day around the world but Spears is a monster for figuring it out? What is it that they really want to ask? “What is next for you and Scorpio Sky?”

Uh, nothing. Scorpio had his chance and did exactly what the world knew what he would: took the higher road. But where did that get him? Spears says this advice to Scorpio: “In this industry, nice guys finish last. DO you understand that?” It isn’t the violence but the distance you are willing to go. Spears has said this from the beginning, and that is why he is vindicated, victorious, and why Scorpio is completely lost. So what’s next for them? Nothing. Now take your ass home, Marvez. Tully and Spears cheers, but what is next for them?

 

Lance Archer and Jake the Snake are here!

But they aren’t alone as the Murderhawk Monster quite literally dumps an AEW prospect into the ring, then gives him a CHOKE SLAM! If that guy wasn’t a rag doll before, he is now. The Snake says the question they keep getting is, “Are you a good guy? Or a bad guy?” Never thought about it, but Snake always thought of himself as “just an honest prick.” But he asks Archer about the guy who invented the DDT. Duh, it’s Jake the Snake. But who stomped and romped all through Japan like Godzilla? Oh that’s Archer! Who’s the guy that carried a large python in a sack? Jake! But who’s the guy who showed up in AEW, took Mark Stunt and tossed him into the front row? Archer!

Jake says he has the topper. Who was the guy that tied the Macho Man in these ropes, and hooked him up with a 15 foot cobra, and left him? Jake the Snake. His favorite moment. Archer likes that, it’s that scary. But who is the guy that every single time that music hits, when that countdown starts, it makes everyone around the ring tear up and afraid, because they know #EverybodyDies? Archer. Then the real problem isn’t who Jake is, or who Archer is. The problem is, they dare anyone in AEW to get in Archer’s face and show us all who THEY are! An open challenge like never seen before has been issued! Who will be brave enough, or perhaps just insane enough, to accept it?

 

Private Party VS VSK & Baron Black!

Marq Quen and Isiah Kassidy had a great time helping Matt Hardy win the ELITE DELETION, but now they want to get back on track to those AEW World Tag Team Championships? Will they “invite” the Visionary and the EmpBRUH to this party in the ring?

The teams sort out and Kassidy starts with Baron. The fans rally up as the two approach and tie up. Baron waistlocks, mat slams and SLAPS Kassidy on the back. Baron dares Kassidy to bring it, Kassidy gets up and circles with him and ties up again. Baron wrenches to a hammerlock then waistlock, but Kassidy arm-drags free! Kassidy drop toeholds, floats over and gives back a lot of slaps! Kassidy facelocks, brings Baron over and tags Quen. Kasisdy whips, Quen leap frogs and Kassidy calf kicks! Cover, TWO!

Then Baron whips VSK at Kassidy but Kassidy tosses him out! Kassidy goes up and over Baron, but Baron grabs a leg! Kassidy kicks Baron away but VSK returns to DECK Quen! Kassidy FLAPJACKS VSK, and fans fire up as both men are down! Kassidy stirs, he and VSK crawl, hot tags to Baron and Quen! Quen rallies on Baron with big clotheslines and a  hip toss!

The bell rings and Stunt throws off his shirt to the fans. Sammy and Stunt circle, fans rally up and the two approach, “secretly” fist bump, and then tie up.

Stunt put up pound-for-pound a big fight, but it wasn’t big enough! Will Sammy get back on track towards a title? Stunt still gives the fist bump back, will these two “secretly” hang out later?

Wait, Sammy gets a mic! “Another win for the good guys, baby.” Hats off to Marko, though. He threw everything at Sammy but that wasn’t enough. Hell, 2020 has thrown everything at Sammy, golf carts included, and Sammy is still standing. There is nothing that can stop what Sammy is, because no one does it like him. Sammy doesn’t phone it in, he doesn’t take days off. Dark, Dynamite, PPV, it doesn’t matter because Sammy is the BEST EVER, every single night! Sooner or later, we will see what Sammy has been saying since day one in AEW. Sammy said that no matter who else says they’re the best, there’s no one bigger than Sammy! No one outshines Sammy! So sooner or later, we’ll see that Sammy isn’t just the best, but that Sammy is a champion! But what title is Sammy going to aim for first?

AEW Dark presents a new episode of The Waiting Room!

Rebel/Reba welcomes us back, and introduces our host, “my dentist and yours,” Dr. Britt Baker! Britt walks in and is again so flattered by the standing ovation, that no one gave. The response to her talk show has been so overwhelming! The fans know that “The Baddest Bitch on the Block” isn’t just a dentist or just a wrestler, but that she is AEW’s franchise star and “quite the comedian.” Her office has been flooded with requests for her to appear! The Laff Factory, the Comedy Store, they all want Britt. Britt tries out some new material real quick: “What is a dentist’s favorite dinosaur? A Floss-araptor.” Rebel’s sidekick laugh is getting dorkier.

But let’s get to tonight. A big congratulations to Renee and Jon Moxley for their baby! Really, she means it. Renee, we can only hope Moxley doesn’t no show the delivery like he did last week’s contract signing. That’d suck…! Fans groan on that one. But Britt gives a big Waiting Room welcome to her guest, the blackbelt in judo and blue belt in Brazilian jiujitsu, the Brazilian Baddie, TAY CONTI! Conti makes her entrance, hugs Britt and takes a seat. Britt is so happy to have Conti tonight, and wants to sort something out. Is it said “Tay” like it’s spelled? Or more like “tie?” Britt would never want to insult her by saying it wrong. That’s just rude. Right, Reba?

Tay thanks Britt for asking, and it is “Tie.” Okay, then! “Tie” Conti, get it right, guys! Britt now joins Conti on the couch and wants to get to know her. This isn’t always about Britt. But who is Conti’s favorite competitor in the AEW Women’s Division? Other than herself and her friend, Anna Jay, Conti is a fan of Serena Deeb and Red Velvet. And…? Oh, duh! And Conti would love to have a match with the most important of the division: Hikaru Shida! Britt doesn’t like that answer but Rebel catches the show’s first “mail call.” And this is from “Tony S” in Atlanta. “What’s your relationship status?” Tony, that’s a bit weird to ask. Conti says no offense, but that is none of our business.

Well! This is Britt’s show, so answer the question. Conti will repeat herself. She knows she has an accent, so she’ll make it clear. “It’s none of your damn business!” Britt and Conti get in each other’s face and Rebel cools things off for their first ever musical guests! It’s The Acclaimed, Max Caster and Anthony Bowens! “AEW! The Acclaimed have arrived! Hit it, Max!” Yo yo! “You can try to be like us. You can try to be like us. You can try to be like us. I don’t really think you can ever do enough, though. You are not prepared to be acclaimed. You could never travel our terrain. And I think we ready for the Hall of Fame! Platinum Max isn’t just a name!

“You will never be cuter than I am. Bowens’ got more talent in his right hand, than anybody on the whole roster! And we got these tag teams lookin’ awkward. Wait, maybe you should be like Britt. Put the smile on that’s priceless. Yo! It’s priceless! And we about to leave y’all lifeless! ‘eeey! Be like us! You can try to be like us! You can try to be like us! I don’t think you could ever do enough, though.” Conti isn’t really feeling Caster’s flow, but Britt has the fans give it up for The Acclaimed! That’s all for tonight from the Waiting Room, and your favorite doctor, Britt Baker, DMD!

The Dark Order stands tall at the end of the night! Will it only be natural that the OG get to have another chance at those AEW World Tag Team Championships?


My Thoughts:

I feel like AEW Dark is becoming more about quantity and not quality. Everything was good tonight, but I feel like the main event could’ve been given more of the 165 minutes the night had. The Triple Threat tag was still fast and furious in a good way, but wouldn’t it have therefore been even better if it could’ve had some room to breathe? Maybe let it be a 15 minute match and not 10, then there wouldn’t be rushing through the spots. Pretty sure there was quite the collision during the double crossbodies to the outside that we weren’t supposed to have. But the Dark Order goes 2-1 on the night with Angels losing to Sydal 1v1. The Dark Order has two strong tag teams, but other than Brodie Lee, I don’t see much going for them in the men’s singles division. And even then, Brodie’s been off TV, I wonder what that’s about.

I will say, Sammy Guevara and Marko Stunt did have a great match, with a lot more out of Stunt than expected. Sammy of course wins to get back on track, and he had a really good promo after. I almost thought someone was going to confront him, but maybe that’ll be next time, since Sammy is deeply involved in the Inner Circle story that is MJF joining in. The Waiting Room was a bit more awkward this week, but clearly they were going for a “Jerry! Jerry!” moment as Britt got confrontational with Tay Conti. The Acclaimed are clearly gaining momentum and star power as they had their musical guest spot on the talk show, then had another good diss rap and win. I am already dying to see/hear Caster’s first diss rap on a big name team like SCU or Private Party.

I also thought it was interesting Avalon got his first win tonight. I really would’ve thought they’d have him wait until the last Dark of the year so that he could close out his 2020 record with that crucial first win and use  it as a bigger reason to celebrate on New Year’s Eve. Plus, how hilarious would that be for him to get that first win, but then records are essentially reset for the 2021 “season?” He’d have to start from scratch basically, right as he finally got on the board!

My Score: 8/10

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed.

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

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

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

 

Rush VS Cody Chhun!

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

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

Winner: Rush, by pinfall

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

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

 

Lexy Nair is outside the trainer’s room.

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

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

 

Deonna Purrazzo VS Robyn Renegade!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by submission

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

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

 

Scorpio Sky speaks.

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

 

Backstage interview with Sonjay Dutt.

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

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

 

PROGRAMMING NOTE for Rampage next week!

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

 

Brian Cage VS Anthony Bowens w/ The Acclaimed!

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

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

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

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

Cage hits apron on the way down, and Bowens aims. Bowens slingshots but Cage moves, so Bowens just goes to the apron. But Cage blocks the Penalty Kick to bring Bowens down, POST BOMB!!

Bowens fights up to his feet, throws body shots, but Cage KNEES him away. Cage wags his finger, gloats a bit more, then runs corner to corner to forearm smash!

Cage soaks up more cheers and jeers as Rampage returns to single picture. Cage run sin, but Bowens BOOTS him! And BOOTS again! Bowens goes up, leaps, but Cage catches him! Cage suplexes, but Bowens cradle counters! TWO!! Cage escapes but Bowens ducks the discus! Bowens hobbles but he still ROCKS Cage, throws more hands, but Cage SOBATS! KICKS!

Bowens rolls through, and he ducks the discus! The SOUTHPAW hits! Cage reels Bowens in, suplexes, DRILL- NO, Bowens slips free to ROLLING ELBOW! And SUPERKICK!

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

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.6/10

Will Ospreay VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

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

But before things get going, here comes The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy, Taven & Bennett walk on out, clearly not leaving things at the face to face on Wednesday.

Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

This is what The Learning Tree is here for! To make Hook a better person and a better wrestler, both inside the ring and out. Jericho will need stitches, and will gladly get them. Because it is proof that Hook is learning what The Learning Tree is teaching. So in a roundabout way, thank you, Hook. And good luck in the qualifiers. Wow, that really hurts.

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

As the Iron Savages make their entrance, Jacked Jameson tells “all you fat morons, skinny idiots, and Low T Losers to shut up.” The fans boo instead, but Jameson says he rode the Max Rail Line from the airport to the hotel downtown, and all along the tracks, it is filled with trash! Now that they’re here in the Moto Center, it’s funny, because it’s also filled with trash! The fans boo being insulted, but Jameson says he can’t wait to leave this dump.

Backstage interview with Pac.

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

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

 

Bullet Club Gold is here!

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

 

The Patriarchy speaks.

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

 

Orange Cassidy VS Isiah Kassidy!

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

Trent is disappointed but Callis is pleased. Is Cassidy really going to end up turning to the dark side- er, Don Callis Family?

Cassidy drags Trent over the railing, security separates them fast! The fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” but we’ll see that soon enough. Will Trent suffer for what he did?

But was the save a little too late with FTR suffering the worst of it? Are The Elite going to make sure there’s no one to even be on Team AEW?


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
