Team Taz is here!

Ricky Starks and Taz himself accompany The Machine to the ring and Taz says what we’re about to witness is the FTW Champion live on Dynamite! But, Taz is a little distracted because look who is up in the nosebleeds. It’s “The face of the network,” the brand new TNT Champion, Darby Allin. Let’s hear it for him! Fans cheer but Taz gives Darby some advice. Last time they saw him, he was splattered on the hood of his own car, courtesy of Team Taz. Taz tells Darby to keep his “narrow ass” in his seat and stay away from the ring. If he doesn’t, he’s getting put out again! And while he’s sitting there, go call Cody Rhodes and let him know the same thing! If Cody crosses paths with them, he’ll get his ass kicked again!

Here’s the deal: The Machine is about to wrestle “a man who is respected in locker rooms all over this world.” Cage is about to wrestle a man who respects those who came before him. Darby doesn’t have that capability! Taz is talking about Matt Sydal! Sydal and Darby have a lot in common: tenacious, pugnacious and fearless, as well as victories over mega stars. Darby beat Cody, Sydal holds a victory over Chris Jericho. That’s no joke and Sydal is no joke, so Taz wants this to happen right now! Cage VS Sydal, let’s go!

Matt Sydal VS Brian Cage w/ Team Taz!

Who can stop the Path of Cage? Sydal is going to try. But will the high-flyer be sent flying by the Swolverine as a message to the Relentless TNT Champion?

The bell rings and Sydal says his third eye is too powerful. Cage lifts Sydal but Sydal slips off! Sydal ducks and dodges to then enziguri Cage to a corner! And then he hits a basement dropkick! But Cage gets right up to throw Sydal to the corner and throw clothesline after clothesline! Cage whips Sydal corner to corner hard! Fans duel as Cage drags Syyal up and CHOPS him! Cage wrenches Sydal and reels him in over a OVERHEAD suplex! Fans cheer the display of power and Cage clubs Sydal. Cage whips, Sydal kicks back and throws forearms! Sydal runs, but into a hip toss backbreaker! Fans duel again as Cage stalks behind Sydal.

Cage drags Sydal up, whips him corner to corner hard again, then takes his time walking over. Fans rally up but Cage RAMS into Sydal! And again! Cage almost puts Sydal into the post! But he brings him back in for a BACKBREAKER! Sydal flounders but Cage looms over him. Cage drags Sydal up, bumps him off buckles and throws forearms! The ref reprimands, Cage drags Sydal up and whip shim corner to corner. Sydal goes up and over and dropkicks! Cage stays up to CLOBBER Sydal! Starks is ringside to mock Sydal’s third eye while Cage stalks over. Fans rally up but Cage drags Sydal up to do bicep curls with him! After a set of 10, Cage FALL AWAY SLAMS Sydal away! Cover, TWO!

Cage keeps his cool as Sydal survives and fans rally up. Cage digs a knee in for the motorcycle stretch but Sydal endures. Fans continue to rally, Sydal fights his way up then drops down to kick Cage! Sydal KICKS and CHOPS on repeat! Then he throws haymakers and whips, but Cage reveres to scoop, only for Sydal to slip out and KICK again! Cage puts Sydal in a corner to clothesline! And uppercut! And enziguri! Cage GERMAN SUPLEXES but Sydal lands on his feet! Cage pops Sydal up, blocks the rana but Sydal slips out. Sydal ducks the clothesline and manages a POP UP BOMB?! Cage gets to the ramp, Sydal climbs up and leaps, METEORA! Taz can’t believe the impact!

Sydal puts Cage in the ring and climbs up again. But Cage gets up and under the shooting star. Cage blocks the kick, gut wrenches and lifts but Sydal sunset flips! Cage stays up, Sydal slips out the back to KICK away on the leg, then QUESTION MARK! PAGE TURNER! Cover, TWO!! Sydal STANDING SKY TWISTERS! Cover, TWO!! Cage is still in this and Taz is growing worried. Starks coaches Cage up while fans rally and duel. Sydal KICKS Cage in the chest, and then KICKS him in the back! Sydal wrenches and kicks but into a pump handle, but Sydal slips out! Cage rolls Sydal, spins but the discus misses, Sydal SOBATS and ROUNDHOUSES! PAGE- NO! DISCUS!!

Cage fires up and fans duel again. Cage drags Sydal up, reel shim in and suplexes, but into a RANA! Cover, TWO!?! Cage barely escapes and Sydal can’t believe it! Fans duel about the count, Sydal KNEES Cage down! Sydal hurries to a corner, climbs up top, Taz panics but Cage catches the blockbuster to a DRILL CLAW!! Cover, Cage wins!

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

Taz is very relieved and is excited to see the power of the Machine! Team Taz regroups and Starks says that was incredible! What everyone feels now is what we felt at Full Gear! Team Taz is officially ranked because they get things done! The next step is the TNT Championship! It doesn’t matter who is in the way, they are putting you in the grave! A promise on Anita’s life, Team FTW’s presence will be felt and the revolution will be televised!

 

Cody Rhodes is here!

The American Nightmare is back with his full name, but without the title. “It seems like we’re having a bit of a weather, huh? You guys okay?” Cody will go ahead and say like he has on social media, congratulations to the new TNT Champion, Darby Allin. “In the spirit of full transparency, I can go ahead and say that Arn Anderson and myself will not be seeking a rematch at this time.” There’s another match, another loss, Cody wants to expunge and be vindicated. He is strongly considering a match with MJF. Whoa, who is this magically appearing behind him? “Can I help you?” She snatches the mic right from him and says, “I don’t know. Can you?”

“Cody, how dare you sit here and lie to our prestigious AEW audience?” She says to everyone wondering, she is Jade Cargill. And she is the “Total Package, baby!” Cody applauds the bravado as she continues. “I’ve been sitting on the sideline week after week, studying my competition. And you, Cody Rhodes, the American Nightmare. The Prince of Pro-Wrestling.” In fact, she remembers him saying he’s a Giant Killer. What does he know about giants? There is nothing giant about him. Whoa~! She knows a giant. A real giant. “And slick statements like yours? That’s an echo loud enough to wake him.” Next time Cody thinks out loud, she suggests he keeps that s*it to himself! Watch out, giant killer. She is nothing to be played with.

“Oh and by the way, congratulations on your name. But I guess you didn’t have the balls to go by one name. That giant you were talking about? He was the real star. And you know what his name is? Shaq.” But then Brandi comes out and asks Jade, “Who the hell told you it was open mic night, b*tch?!” UH OH! Jade lookin’ real confused so Brandi will make this real clear! Jade up here, in BRANDI’S house, smackin’ her lips at Brandi’s man, and now she’s Brandi’s problem! UH OH! Brandi will make this real easy, too. “Don’t you ever, EVER talk to him like that again! Don’t you even LOOK at him!” And y’know what else? Take that ratchet triflin’ ass out of here, and do not come back until Brandi sends for you. “Got that, heifer?! Good, great, cool. B*tch, get yo’ ass outta here.”

Brandi goes to leave, and Jade gives her a pat on the butt?! Staff hurries out here to keep this from firing off! Will the Nightmare Family have their hands full with Shaquille O’Neil’s family? But wait! Cage comes back to sneak attack Cody! POWERBOMB!! Starks returns to add on, but here comes Darby! Darby got out of his seat and went right to ringside! He gets in, dodges Starks and springboards to Trust Fall and weaponize his jacket of thumbtacks! Starks scrambles away but Cage stares him down. So Code gets Cage with an uppercut! Darby runs in to BACK BODY BLOCK with the tack jacket!

Cage bails out and regroups with Starks and Taz! Cody dares them to try some more but Taz has his guys fall back. Will Hobbs shows up, too! Team Taz definitely takes their leave now! Will Cody, Hobbs and Darby take the fight to Team Taz and finally shut them up?

 

Backstage interview with Jon Moxley.

He is STILL AEW World Champion after perhaps the most violent, physically draining match in this company’s history. Moxley made Eddie Kingston say “I Quit,” but Alex Marvez asks if Moxley is worried about his new contender, Kenny Omega. Moxley says something just occurred to him while enduring more pain than he has in his life. It wasn’t that he didn’t want to say “I Quit,” it’s that he just couldn’t. Moxley first came here, the responsibility of being champion didn’t really interest him. He just wanted to snap bones, hurt people, knock them out, enjoy the thrill of combat and the roar of the crowd in the greatest sport there is.

But things change. You grow up in this business. And finally, Moxley realized this title everyone who can’t pay their bills, who are disenfranchised. This title is for every little kid who gets teased for being a pro-wrestling fan. Moxley can’t and won’t quit, he will never quit. It doesn’t matter what lays ahead. And he has a big challenge in one of the greatest wrestlers to ever live in Kenny Omega. Moxley won that legendary battle. But beating him once is one thing. Beating him twice? That takes someone really special, and that is Moxley. Moxley is the greatest wrestler in the world today! He creates magic in the ring. If anyone can beat Omega twice, it’s him. But he’s just a man. One day, someone will shut Moxley’s lights off. But if Omega’s going to try, then good luck.

 

BREAKING NEWS on Moxley VS Omega!

The AEW World Championship match between Maniac and Cleaner is coming up fast! December 2nd, we will have this rematch from Full Gear 2019!! Who will close the year out with that title?!

Allie had her fun toying with the emotions of QT Marshall, but is back with The Fam. There’s no more games and anything goes! Will QT and Dustin Rhodes finally pay the Bunny back for all she and her family did to them?

Looking around the ring, the origins of this match type become clear.

Blade bumps into Allie and Allie falls through the table!! Allie suffers karma! Dustin uses the COW BELL on Blade! DIAMOND CUTTER onto the chains! Cover, Natural Nightmares win!!

Winners: The Natural Nightmares, by pinfall

This was a brutal way for this grudge to end, but QT has gotten his revenge on the Bunny that used him and the Butcher and Blade that abused him! Will QT and Dustin head up the ranks towards the AEW World Tag Team Championships?

 

AEW hears from Matt Hardy.

“Over the course of the last eight months, myself and Sammy Guevara have done everything to try and maim one another, to try and cripple one another, to try and end each other’s careers.” Over the course of Hardy’s 28 year career, there ha snot been a rivalry that has caused so much pain and rage, and spawned so many injuries. Hardy tells Sammy that he had very little respect for him, but after seeing his tenacity and resilience, there is some respect now. That moment at All Out, Hardy’s confidence took a shot. That’s why he had to do what he did at Full Gear. “It was the only way this blood vendetta could end.” Sammy had to be DELETED, made OBSOLETE, and be BROKEN!

Sammy may have lost the rivalry, but he lost to an iconic wrestler like Hardy. Hardy knows Sammy will become an even more iconic wrestler for it, so do not squander this gift. Will Sammy’s brutal defeat only make him even stronger?

 

AEW presents the 2020 Inner Circle Induction Ceremony.

Wait, that implies there’s going to be more in the future? That aside, MJF won his way into the faction by defeating Chris Jericho at Full Gear. As agreed, Maxwell Jacob Friedman will now be added to their ranks. Justin Roberts introduces Le Champion to begin the ceremony! The Demo God is smiling as he goes to the podium, and enjoys the fans singing Judas for him. Jericho thanks us and says tonight is a monumental night in Jacksonville! “Because for the first time ever since the formation of The Inner Circle on October 2nd, 2019, on the very first episode of Dynamite, we’re adding not just one but two members to our ranks, right here tonight!” Fans have mixed feelings about that.

Before introduction the new, here are the OG IC! Santana, Ortiz and Jake Hager head to the ring, but Sammy is not here. Worry about that later, worry more about the two men that will make this faction even more dominant than before! Jericho introduces Wardlow and MJF! They both make their entrance, Wardlow of course holding the ropes open for MJF. MJF is “emotional” but apologizes. It has taken a long and hard road to get here. Real men cry, guys. MJF has been in this industry for five long years. And when he first started, his dad gave him a small loan of one million dollars. MJF was cold and alone, but he made it work.

Now there is a lot of pressure at being the Ratings Ruler feels at just 24 years of age, nothing you 9-to-5 types could never handle. But that pressure made MJF the diamond he is before us today. MJF took the time to write some poetry, and has a feeling his “homies” will “dig” this. “I got everything, I got everything. I cannot complain, I cannot. I don’t even know how much I really made. I forgot, it’s a lot. Nevermind what I got, boy, don’t watch that, cuz I came up, that’s all me. Stay true, that’s all me. No help, that’s all me. All me for real. Thank you.” Ortiz says that’s just Drake’s song! MJF says it was all his own work. Chris, see through the charade! MJF doesn’t belong!

Jericho has them to stop. If they have a problem with MJF, take it up with him. Jericho made the challenge, but MJF beat him to get in. But Jericho does want to say this, as a veteran of 30 years, he knows this business better than anyone. And with MJF’s mind plus Wardlow’s muscle, the Inner Circle will be stronger than ever, and they’re already stronger than The Walls of Jericho! “This is the new team, this is the new squad, this is the new unstoppable force in AEW, and you will make it work! You understand?!” They’re a team. MJF doesn’t want tension. He doesn’t know who Drake is, but he started from the bottom and now he is here in the Inner Circle! That’s more Drake!

But MJF points out that they’re not just here to celebrate him. They’re here to celebrate JERICHO’S BIRTHDAY~! Surprise~! Balloons! Confetti! OO-EE, OO-EE! Wardlow whispers something to MJF. Oh, right, of course! Cut the music because MJF has a very urgent announcement. “Next week, we’re going to Vegas!!” And it’s all on MJF! Now all together! Happy birthday to you~! Happy birthday to you~! Happy birthday, Dear Chris Jericho the Goat greatest of all time~! Happy birthday to you~! “INNER CIRCLE, WE’RE GOING TO VEGAS! WOO!!” Well that won Hager and Santana over. But Ortiz is still a hard sell, and we have no idea where Sammy is so who knows how he feels. Will the Vegas trip bring the new and improved(?) Inner Circle closer together?

 

Backstage interview with The Young Bucks.

Alex Marvez is a bit worried talking to the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions. Oh, right, that… Well, Marvez moves past that to say that Matt and Nick Jackson really are the best tag team in the world now, having beat FTR for these titles. So what’s next? Well they just went through hell, having finally achieved the biggest accomplishment of their entire careers. It’s hard to say what’s next. But the world surely wants a rematch. Before that, Matt just wants to say, “Young Bucks” and “tag team champions” just go so well together, don’t they? And again, sorry for kicking him.

But now that the Bucks are the top of the mountain, and they’re being asked what’s next, Matt says they need some “fresh opponents.” That brings them to a couple months ago, the Instagram message Matt received from a “young, up and coming independent tag team called Top Flight.” Took him all about 30 seconds to look through a music video to see those two have something. Young, hungry daredevils who are real life brothers. Reminds him of a certain team. But if opportunity is what they want, that opportunity is what they get. Next week, on Dynamite, Top Flight VS the NEW top guys. Young Bucks out. And again, sorry for kicking Marvez. What big news for young Darrius and Dante Martin! Win or lose, will they their own “brush with greatness” launch them to new heights?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Dynamite!

After the confrontation between Cody, Darby and Team Taz, a 2v2 tag match will happen between them! Will the American Nightmare and new Face of TNT take down the FTW Champion Brian Cage and Absolute Ricky Starks?

The Chair Man and SoCal Uncensored’s Closer will finally settle the score that has been building for over a month now! From Dark to Dynamite, will Spears reach #PERFECT10N? Or will he just Reach for the Sky?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally for Scorpio as he and Spears tie up. They go around, break, and Spears shouts “THIEF!” at the man he feels keeps stealing his moments! Scorpio ROCKS Spears for that, throws more forearms, then whips him to ropes. Spears runs Scorpio over, but Scorpio gets right up as Spears keeps moving and Scorpio chops Spears down!

The ref checks the black glove but it’s not loaded yet. Spears stalks Scorpio to the corner, brings Scorpio up but Scorpio hits back! And CHOPS back! Scorpio backs Spears down again, whips him but Spears reverses to reel him in again. Scorpio slips out of the tilt-o-whirl to hit the COMPLETE SHOT! Both men are down, the ref starts a standing count and the fans rally up. Scorpio gets to a corner, aims at Spears as he goes up, and AEW returns to single picture as Spears dodges the missile dropkick! Spears fist bumps Tully then wags a finger at Scorpio.

Spears tells Scorpio he’s done for, and he fireman’s carries. Scorpio slips off to arm-drag Spears away! Scorpio clotheslines Spears and himself out!

Spears hides the evidence and Tully raises his hand. The ref checks the glove but now it’s clean! Will Tully’s evil genius continue to help Spears steal wins and climb the rankings?

 

Backstage interview with Kenny Omega.

Dasha was here with him but Omega ran off. He didn’t say much, either, so guess back to ringside. Marvez hurries after Omega in the parking lot but Omega’s on the phone. Omega tells them he’ll call back, but it was great seeing them. Omega talks to Marvez and the news is out. Their match is happening, but it isn’t news to him. It’s something Omega’s lived with a couple days now. It’s the reality that Omega is stepping out of the position as an afterthought, and stepping into the #1 contender’s spot and the #1 position in all of wrestling. Moxley holds something Omega wants and needs.

To hold that title is to take back something that Moxley took from him: being the face on all the magazines, being the man that is most talked about in all of wrestling, and being the man that everyone expected him to be. Omega hears the whispers, the chatter. “Where is the Cleaner? Where’s the Best Bout Machine? Where’s the Kenny Omega that we saw in NJPW?” The one with the five-star, six-star, seven-star matches? Well Omega has proven with the eliminator tournament that he’s never left. He is just ready to reassume the role and the responsibility of being the best in the world. The biggest Dynamite of all time, Moxley and Omega for the “first time ever.”

When Omega heard Moxley’s name and wearing the belt, there was a feeling of nostalgia or deja vu. Omega swears they had a match before, but when he looked in the AEW record books, there was not a record of them have even one singles match, under regular rules in a regular ring. So it’s never actually happened. They’re 0-0. What will happen when Moxley faces Omega in a regular match? We’ll find out. Moxley sounds ready, so is Omega. But Omega has a flight to catch. “Good-bye, goodnight, all that stuff. Thank you, please enjoy Dynamite.” The #1 contender has spoken, what happens when we “officially” see Maniac VS Cleaner?

 

Tay Conti w/ Anna Jay VS Red Velvet w/ Brandi Rhodes!

Jade Cargill may have riled up The Queen of AEW, but there is still business the CBO needs to handle. But she and the Queenslayer are battling through their friends and proxies first! Will the Brazilian blackbelt score one for Number 99? Or will Velvet stir it up and taste sweet, sweet victory?

The bell rings, Tay and Velvet tie up and break, then go again. Velvet puts Tay in a corner, the ref calls for a break and Velvet lets off. Velvet steps to Tay, and pats her shoulder for making her flinch. Tay turns things around to dig Velvet into the corner. Tay lets off but also step feints, and then pats Velvet’s head for making her flinch. Velvet and Tay circle and tie up again, Velvet gets around to roll Tay up, ONE! Velvet has the legs, turns Tay over and ties the legs up, then uses body scissors to turn Tay back over, modified bridging cover, TWO! Velvet rushes in but Tay trips her up. ONE, Tay arm-drags Velvet but Velvet arm-drags back! The two stand off and fans fire up!

Tay and Velvet circle again but give a quick handshake to show there’s still respect. They tie up, Tay headlocks but Velvet powers out. Tay runs Velvet over, brushes herself off, and speeds things up. Velvet side steps and hits a leg lariat to take Tay down! Standing moonsautl! Cover, ONE, but Velvet puts Tay in a corner. Velvet digs her boots in and does a split! The re counts, Tay pushes Velvet away then pushes her again. Velvet pushes back, throws a forearm but Tay gives it back! Judo throw, then another!

But Tay’s too wiped out to cover! Both women are down, catching their breath, and fans rally up. Tay sits up first and goes after Velvet to finally cover, TWO! Tay keeps on Velvet with elbows to the shoulder! Over and over and over and over! Cover, TWO! Velvet reaches for ropes but Tay drags her into a seated full nelson. Fans rally as Velvet endures and fights her way up. Velvet booty bumps free but Tay reels her into a roll-up! TWO and Tay dead lifts Velvet, but Velvet counters to a guillotine facelock! But Tay powers out to suplex Velvet down! Cover, TWO!

Fans fire up and Jay coaches Tay. Velvet flounders but Tay is after her. Tay brings Velvet up to knee her hard and low over and over! Velvet is in trouble as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns, Velvet again fights out of the full nelson with booty bumps. Velvet is free and she arm-drags Tay away! Tay comes back, but Velvet dodges her in the corner! Velvet rallies with big clotheslines and a back elbow! Tay staggers up into Velvet’s wheelbarrow and BULLDOG! Fans fire up with Velvet as she drags Tay up to whip and drop toehold onto ropes! Velvet runs to KNEE her down! Velvet keeps on Tay with a whip to the corner. Velvet runs in to SHINING WIZARD! Tay is dazed, Velvet cravats for a running STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Tay stays alive and Velvet can’t believe it! Fans fire up as Velvet drags Tay up. Tay breaks free, DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSES take them both down!

Brandi checks on Velvet but Jay slips Tay a chair! Tay isn’t sure but Jay is Dark Order all the way. Tay refuses to use the chair and kicks it out! Velvet LEG LARIATS her down! High stack cover, TWO!! Velvet brings Tay up, mule kicks low then runs, to BOOT! But Tay dodges?! Tay rolls Velvet, reels her in for a BOOT of her own! Then Tay brings Velvet up for a gut wrench, Gory Especial, spinning KNEE!! Cover, Tay wins!

Winner: Tay Conti, by pinfall

Not only did she get a big win, she did things her way! Jay has mixed feelings about that, but the point was to win! Will Tay #JoinDarkOrder if it means changing her ways? Or will the Dark Order accept Tay as she is?

 

Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.

Does Marvez see these tickets? They’re going to Vegas, baby! Look, it’s first class! You ever been to Vegas, Marvez? Probably to OLD Vegas, stuck playing Go Fish! They’re going first class! MJF adds on, telling “Mark-vez” that the trip is all on MJF! But then Sammy finally arrives! Sammy got an email about going to the beach but they weren’t there. They were here. MJF says he sent an update email about to go to Daily’s. No, the ONE email Sammy got was about the beach. It seems Sammy was the only one left out, again. Sammy says this is BS! Jericho keeps the peace and says they all understand if Sammy only got the one email. But they’re all going to Vegas, it’s cool.

The rest leave but MJF talks to Sammy. He really did mean to send a second email. Now, here’s his ticket to Vegas. Remember: all on MJF. Sammy still stews about the email, but will the Vegas trip make it up to him?

 

There are MORE big matches set for next week’s Dynamite!

On top of the grudge match of Cody & Darby VS Cage & Starks, on top of Top Flight getting to face The Young Bucks, Orange Cassidy and Kip Sabian will go 1v1! Will Freshly Squeezed get even with Superbad on behalf of Best Friends?

 

Eddie Kingston heads to the ring.

“Hold on, hold on, hold on real quick.” He tells fans to stop cheering his name, he knows his name. He wants to speak real quick. “At Full Gear, your World Champion, Jon Moxley, made me say I quit. And that’s something I gotta deal with and live with.” But unlike fans who would wrestle once then quit to never try again, “I will never stop, and I will be worlds champion!” Now, to pressing matters. Kingston being the leader of violent men and women, we’re about to see Penta VS Fenix! And we will all see “two of the greatest luchadors ever to do it.” And all Kingston can say is, “You’re welcome.”

Penta El Zero M VS Rey Fenix!

The Lucha Brothers once again face each other 1v1 in AEW! The world title eliminator tournament match between them was rough, but they stayed brothers through it. Will they still be family after doing it all over again?

AEW returns once more as Penta makes his entrance. The bell rings, fans chant for “Lucha Brothers!” as the two stare down. They rush each other, Fenix goes Matrix to avoid the clothesline but Penta avoids the dropkick. Penta stomps but Fenix gets under the victory roll, TWO! Penta SUPERKICKS Fenix then runs, but into a BOOT! Penta boots but Fenix spins to HEEL KICK, Penta ENZIGURIS! Both brothers are down and fans fire up! Kingston says his better friend is the better but he’s said both are his best friend at different points so… Fenix gets to one corner, Penta to the other, they run at each other and double clotheslines collide! Both stay up so Fenix spins Penta to bring him up. Penta slips off, Fenix somersaults and springs up to wheelbarrow, victory roll! TWO and Penta brings Fenix up!

Fenix throws elbows and standing switches to shove Penta. Penta goes up and over and then gets Fenix for a modified sunset flip, TWO! Fans fire up as the brothers stand. Fenix dodges and runs, headscissors throws Penta out! Penta dares Fenix to do something, Fenix runs but Penta gets in to send Fenix out! Fenix almost saves himself but he still bumps into railing! Fans fire up as Penta builds speed, but Fenix somersaults in to shotgun dropkick! Fenix kips up, fans fire up with him, and he runs, into a tilt-o-whirl gut wrench! Penta figure fours the legs for a standing Cloverleaf! Fenix endures, Penta drops him, sits him up and digs at the mask?! How can he do that to his own brother?!

Penta stops short of completely exposing Fenix and then wraps him up in a chinlock. Penta throws punches, the ref reprimands and Penta lets off. Penta chokes Fenix on the ropes! Fenix defends his face more than anything, but Penta stops to whip him to ropes. SUPERKICK! Penta fires up, swaggers around, then sits Fenix up, and keeps him up by the piece of torn mask! Penta wraps a chinlock on and grinds Fenix down but fans rally up. Fenix fights as AEW goes picture in picture.

Penta brings Fenix around, KICKS his leg out from under him, and Fenix tumbles out of the ring. Penta follows but Fenix CHOPS! Penta CHOPS and it’s a chop fight! Penta CHOPS Fenix off his feet! Penta brings Fenix up to POST him! Fenix is down, Penta tells the ref to relax as he goes to fetch him. Penta drags Fenix up by his beat up mask and put shim back in the ring. Penta drags Fenix up, whips him to ropes again, and tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKERS! Fenix writhes but Penta just soaks up the heat. Penta has Fenix against ropes and bends him back! Penta bites the torn piece of mask then drops Fenix at the ref’s count. The ref reprimands, Penta brings Fenix up and whips again to clobber him with an elbow!

Penta grabs a leg and drops an elbow on the knee! Fenix clutches the leg, Penta covers, TWO! Fenix narrowly escapes but Penta is on him again. Penta brings Fenix up but Fenix fights back. They brawl, Fenix CHOPS but Penta CHOPS! Fenix sits down but he slaps the cobwebs out. Penta dares Fenix to get up but Fenix dares Penta to do something. Penta brings Fenix up but Fenix CHOPS first! Penta CHOPS back! Penta reels Fenix in, “CERO! MIEDO”! Tuck and lift, but Fenix flips out to arm-drag and cover, TWO!! Penta BOOTS Fenix to the corner, then runs in, to a BOOT! Fenix puts Penta in, goes up the ropes and SOBATS! Fenix runs corner to corner, Penta pops him up and out to the ramp! Fenix lands on his feet and enziguris back!

Fenix goes up the way, runs back to ropes to springboard and RANA! Cover, TWO!! Penta narrowly escapes now but Fenix fires up! Fenix dodges, handsprings, and CUTTERS! “This is Awesome!” as Fenix covers, TWO! Penta is still in this and Fenix drags Penta up. Now Fenix TEARS Penta’s mask! He’s all but exposed Penta!! And only now is Kingston upset! Fenix drags Penta up, but both brothers have the torn piece of mask! They throw haymakers over and over, then headbutts! Fenix knees low, then again! Fenix CHOPS Penta, then runs, to somersault, but into Penta’s dragon sleeper! “CERO! MIEDO!” INVERTED BLOCKBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and Kingston gives him credit.

Fans rally for the Lucha Brothers again as the standing count climbs. Fenix and Penta slowly stir at around 3, then sit up. Penta fires up, makes sure his mask is somewhat on, and then brings Fenix up. “CERO! MIEDO!” But Fenix headscissors out of the suplex! Fenix runs to FLY, TORNILLO takes Penta down! Fans are thunderous as Fenix looms over Penta. Fenix drags Penta up into the ring, then he climbs up to the top rope. SWANTON BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Penta survives and Fenix can’t believe it! Fenix drags Penta up to a fireman’s carry, but Penta slips out to the apron. Penta suplexes Fenix up and out to join him, kicks low and reel shim in! But Fenix pushes him away, so Penta SUPERKICKS him! Penta tucks Fenix in, APRON PACKAGE PILEDRIVER!!

The referee goes out to check Fenix and even Kingston says that was too much. Penta leaves Fenix behind but Fenix somehow rises! So Penta leaps to SUPER DESTROYER to the floor!! Penta puts Fenix in, drags him back up and tells him, “CERO! MIEDO!” Another tuck, another PACKAGE DRIVER!! Cover, Penta wins!

Winner: Penta El Zero M, by pinfall

Kingston says there’s some time left on the show so he talks. “This is Awesome! Clap clap, whatever you marks do. Fight forever, right? That chant.” But ladies and gentlemen, what we just saw was two of the greatest in the world today! Two brothers fighting for competition, and Kingston’s best friend showed his own brother who is boss! Kingston congratulates Penta, Cero Miedo! He kicks Fenix out of the ring?! Kingston is proud of Penta, that’s why he’s Kingston’s best friend. Penta doesn’t need anyone! Penta doesn’t need that “dead weight.”

But wait, who is this? PAC IS BACK!! The Bastard returns and is seething as he stares at Kingston! “Eddie Kingston! Did you think I’d be gone forever, huh!? Well bad news, scumbag! The Bastard’s back, and you have made a very, very big mistake!” Kingston taunts Pac while referees hold Pac back! Pac wants to unleash all of his aggression on The Mad King for hijacking his team! Tony Khan just tells us through commentary that Pac’s return is set for next week! Pac will take on another member of Kingston’s Fam in The Blade! But Pac almost gets at Kingston now! How long will Pac have to wait to get his revenge?


My Thoughts:

A great episode to follow up Full Gear! Really good aftermath interview promos, such as Moxley and Omega both referencing last year’s “Unsanctioned” Full Gear main event in their own way. Moxley knows what we know and that is that he won, but Omega goes with what’s on the kayfabe win-loss record to kind of frame who is the Face and Heel here in a way. We’re getting their rematch in a month, and that is going to be a big episode towards the Revolution build. It’s really great the Bucks are giving Top Flight a Dynamite debut with their match next week. I felt Darrius and Dante were a great team but their showing on Dark was a bit wonky because something was off with Frankie Thomas. But Top Flight against the Bucks, we’ll really get to see what the Martin brothers can do against the Jacksons.

Team Taz had a good promo on Darby, Cage had a great match with Sydal, especially since Sydal got to look great. The segment with Jade Cargill interrupting Cody was an interesting one, but it clearly means the TNT Network crossover is happening. Cody VS Shaq, AEW’s first celebrity match, that’s actually a great one. Brandi getting in Jade’s face was great, too, I would love to see that as a match. Darby having a thumbtack jacket is exactly what he should be wearing. His tag match with Cody against Team Taz is going to be a lot of fun. Tay VS Velvet was a lot of fun, especially with Jay trying to tempt Tay to the Dark Order side but Tay resisting. I think Jay’s next story should really be with her trying to recruit Tay more and more. Either outcome, Tay joining Dark Order or becoming a new enemy, will be great for them and the AEW Women’s Division.

That Bunkhouse match was incredible! I should’ve figured they’d have multiple blood spots, and for Allie to face comeuppance directly with a table spot. Natural Nightmares win to move past that story and to possibly head for the tag titles. That’d be an interesting match as Cody is still friends with the Bucks but it’s literally his family on the other side, Cody might end up in the middle of that feud. The “induction ceremony” for MJF was pretty good. MJF saying the night wasn’t just about him was a great way to trick us into thinking he’d give Wardlow even a moment of spotlight, but it was the next ploy in his scheme. Sammy getting a email about the beach but no second email was definitely to further those plans. Something needs to happen on the “Vegas trip” that brings into question whether or not Sammy stays in the faction, possibly through a match of MJF VS Sammy.

Spears VS Scorpio was a really good match, and worth the wait from when it was first advertised for a couple weeks ago. The metal slug was introduced in a very clever way this time, and Spears winning thanks to that surely means this continues. The feud will help both guys bide some time while the singles titles are tied up in other stories. I would think Scorpio comes out the winner in this feud, since commentary even pointed out how he is the third winningest man in AEW, behind Cody and Kenny. Depending on who wins Moxley VS Omega, I feel like Scorpio against either of them would make for a great match. Moxley’s fought mostly sluggers and powerhouses, but taking on someone truly athletic would be fresh. Omega VS Scorpio would be even wilder because they’re both so fast and agile, it’d be about who can keep going.

The Penta VS Fenix rematch was a great match, and a lot of great story given the first time around, as well as Kingston on commentary denying the fact he is the reason for the dysfunction. I finally realized with this match that the luchador lore of the masks being sacred is mostly for kayfabe. Otherwise, why would they be so willing to have their masks torn up? These two both went through a lot of the same in Lucha Underground, so clearly it’s a story telling device. Penta wins to tie up the series between the brothers, even if the record says Fenix “vacated” his win from the tournament. And then PAC returning was great! Pac wants after Kingston, Archer wants after The Fam, will they end up a duo instead of Death Triangle reforming? At least, I expect Pac and Fenix to take on Kingston and Penta as the payoff.

My Score: 9.1/10

Christian Cage speaks.

“Welcome to Collision. Welcome to the one year anniversary of Collision. That’s right, it’s been 365 days since I singlehandedly put this show on the map when I won the TNT Championship int he very first episode, and went on a run with the TNT Championship that will never, ever be seen again.

And in the spirit of usual unpredictability, on the eve of the most important holiday of the year, Father’s Day, I guarantee you, Christian Cage’s Collision is going to end up being… very special.” Just what does The Patriarch have in mind for “his” show?

 

8 Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS Rocky Romero, Lio Rush & TMDK!

Jon Moxley is still IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Wheeler Yuta is still ROH Pure Champion, and both Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli are still bad, bad men! The BCC is looking to still be the baddest group around, but will they be rolling on towards Forbidden Door? Or will Azucar, The Bad Child and the NEW Undisputed NJPW Tag Team Champions prove they’re just a little bit badder?

They mug Bryan, and Lio fires off at the ropes! Tag to Rocky, he adds on with KICKS! Rocky stomps Bryan down, tags Mikey, and they mug Bryan some. Mikey then CHOKES Bryan on the ropes! The ref counts, Mikey lets off, and Bryan sputters as he reaches out. Mikey drags Bryan up to tag in Rocky, and the mugging continues! The ref has to keep The BCC back and that lets the whole team beat up on Bryan!

Rocky taunts Yuta, goes back to Bryan, and brings Bryan around to snapmare. Rocky clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Bryan down. Bryan endures, fights up, but Rocky becomes a backpack!

Claudio powers Lio around to TOSS into the DEATH RIDER!! Cover, BCC wins!

Winners: Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

The BCC defend homefield in AEW, and we’re just two weeks away from Forbidden Door! Moxley then gets the mic to say, “Tetsuya Naito of NJPW is a survivor, but The Forbidden Door is the final conflict. This is it. This is your last chance. I’m not coming to beat you,  Naito. I’m not coming to defend the IWGP Championship. I’m coming to Forbidden Door to put an end to Tetsuya Naito once and for all! Naito, I’m coning to Forbidden Door to finish you, to finish your career, to put you in a pine box, to put you in the ground, and to BURY your ass once and for all!!” A powerful ultimatum with still two weeks to go, will the Maniac also be the man that retires Naito?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Youngstown, Ohio, please welcome The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn! The fans fire up as Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass make their way to the ring. Schiavone lets Caster have the mic, and he says usually the Acclaimed comes out here with a rap, some punchlines, but tonight, if you didn’t see, but the “love” EVPs, the Young F’s…! Well, those guys issued a $5 THOUSAND FINE on them for disparaging company executives!? There was a tweet about it! Seems these EVPs are outta touch with the fans! Youngstown confirms!

Caster says the fans don’t want a couple of women’s business suit wearing a-holes! They want Platinum Max roasting everyone! They want Bowens & Billy hitting the scissor fingers, and you bet they want The Acclaimed to become the NEW AEW World Tag team Champions! And if Bowens was The Bucks, he wouldn’t focus the pettiness on raps and tweets, but on the fact that they will be face to face with The Acclaimed for the first time in four years. And this isn’t the same team they faced before in 2020. They are not an upstart! They have the same exact accolades as The Bucks do! Scissor King, Platinum Max, FORMER AEW World Tag Team Champions, FORMER AEW World Trios Champions, the WINNINGEST team in the history of AEW!!

And all they have to get the titles back is beat The Bucks twice. So do your worst! FINE them, but all they want is to get those titles back, get this company back, and prove that EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! In fact, forget fines! Take those fines, stick ’em up your virgin asses, because everyone here is gonna kick it old school for you! YO! YO! YO! LISTEN~! But then someone says NOOOO~! And it’s Brandon Cutler! He tells The Acclaimed to listen! This one year anniversary of Collision is to be a night of praise for the EVPs! They’ve carried this show since day one! But these limp noodles use their public platform to disparage!

So if they want a fine? FINE! Here’s a $10 THOUSAND fine! Then it’ll be $15- Christopher Daniels comes out here to stop Cutler. The Acclaimed had Daniels’ back, so here’s some good news. Tony Khan has REVERSED the fines, they get their money back! And Cutler, we don’t need to hear any more from you. But Cutler shows his clipboard to Daniels. Daniels SMACKS Cutler with the clipboard! Then DECKS him with his fist! Daniels TOSSES Cutler in for The Acclaimed to handle! They trip him up, hold him open, and Bowens goes up to say, SCISSOR ME TIMBERS~! Cutler crawls away in shame, but will The Bucks make sure The Acclaimed pay for that on Wednesday?

 

No Disqualifications: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

La Mera Mera tried to be an ally to The Virtuosa against their common enemy, but the only thing they had in common was that they wanted to be the one to take down Toni Storm. That made them into enemies, and it has escalated to this! With nothing holding these two back, who stops at nothing to make sure the other regrets ever showing up in AEW?

Deonna doesn’t wait, she attacks while Rosa’s on the corner! The bell rings and Deonna puts Rosa in the Tree of Woe. Deonna runs in, but Rosa sits up! Deonna slides out of the ring, and Rosa CROSSBODIES down onto her! Rosa fires off hands, then POSTS Deonna! The fans rally behind Rosa and she CHOPS Deonna against the apron. Rosa SMACKS Deonna off the steel steps, then off them again, and then again! Rosa stands on Deonna, Deonna pushes her away, and Rosa starts bringing out stuff from under the ring! A chain, a trash can, and the lid! Rosa SMACKS Deonna with the lid! And then pushes the lid into Deonna with a boot!

The fans want tables but Rosa runs up first. Deonna dodges, Rosa dropkicks the steps! Deonna drags Rosa up, puts an arm between steps and post, then BOOTS the steps! Rosa falls back, clutching the elbow! Deonna snarls, goes looking under the ring, and she brings out a kendo stick! Deonna throws that all the way over the ring, but she gets some chairs. Deonna wedges a chair in a corner, then gets Rosa up. Rosa reverses the whip but Deonna stops herself! Deonna kicks and whips, but Rosa stops. Rosa ELBOWS Deonna, fireman’s carries, then DEATH VALLEY DRIVERS! Cover, TWO! Deonna stays in this but Rosa goes looking for more!

Rosa brings out a TABLE! Youngstown cheers as Rosa gets that big thing up, only for Deonna to DROPKICK it into her! The fans boo but Deonna soaks up the heat, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Deonna drags the table up for herself, and she puts that in the ring. Deonna drags Rosa up, wrenches, then kicks Rosa. Deonna hammerlocks an arm before she POSTS Rosa! And then she hammerlocks and POSTS Rosa again! Rosa clutches the side of her face, but there’s no blood, yet. Deonna gets Rosa in the ring, then drags her over to snapmare by the table. Deonna steps over Rosa to trap the arms, then turns her over so she can dribble Rosa’s head onto the wood! Deonna lets off and Rosa flops over. Cover, TWO! Rosa is tougher than that but Deonna keeps her cool as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and the two fight over a chair. Deonna JAMS Rosa up, takes a swing, but Rosa dodges! Rosa BOOTS the chair into Deonna! Then Rosa grabs the chair to JAM Deonna, and SMACK her on the back! And SMACK her again! Rosa brings Deonna around, fireman’s carries, and SAMOAN DROPS her on the folded table! Cover, TWO! Deonna is still in this but Rosa drags her around to put in a corner. Rosa hoists Deonna up top, goes up after her, but Deonna fights with body shots! Rosa CLUBS Deonna in return, but Deonna slips under! Rosa rains down fists, so Deonna YANKS her into the buckle! CHEEKY NANDOS!

Rosa falls into the Tree of Woe, Deonna runs up and this time, she RAMS into Rosa! Rosa falls out of the Tree, Deonna covers, TWO!! Rosa survives that Spear of Woe or whatever you’d call it, and the fans rally up. Deonna drags Rosa up, slashes her throat, and then Gotch lifts, but Rosa fights that! Rosa wrenches out to FULL METAL DDT!! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives hitting steel but Rosa won’t let up. Rosa brings Deonna over to a corner, and puts the trash can around her! The fans cheer as Rosa stomps away on Deonna! Deonna sits down, Rosa grabs the table and she brings that around. The fans cheer as it’s finally set up!

Rosa SMACKS the can with the chain! Then Rosa finishes setting the table up, to use it as a ramp! FLYING SHOTGUN into the trash can!! The fans are thunderous for that unique use of a table, and then Rosa covers Deonna, TWO!?!? Deonna survives the savage innovation, but Rosa won’t give up just yet. Rosa completely stands the table up now, but Deonna has a chair! She slide sit at Rosa, the table falls over, but Rosa JAMS Deonna up with it! Rosa reels Deonna in, underhooks, but Deonna fights the package to wrench out! Deonna reels Rosa in, for a KNEELING PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!!! Rosa lives and Deonna is stunned!

Deonna clamps onto the arm, FUJIWARA! Rosa reaches out, but ends up in the VENUS DE MILO!!! Rosa reaches with her legs, but Deonna HAMMERS away on her head! Deonna rolls past Rosa to then look around on the outside. She LOW BLOWS a staff member!? Just to CLOBBER Rosa with his camera!!! Deonna shows no mercy to anyone, and she puts Rosa in the ropes! MOTORCYCLE STRETCH IN THE ROPES! Rosa’s out cold, Deonna wins!!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by referee stoppage

That camera shot might as well have been a knockout! But Deonna still gets the win either way. Is Deonna going to move on from Rosa once and for all to then go after a title? Or will Rosa’s revenge not die with one loss?

 

Hechicero w/ The Gates of Agony VS Dalton Castle

Now this is a unique match-up! The Alchemist of Lucha is taking on The Peacock, and… wait are those The Outrunners being Castle’s substitute Boys? Well, uh, Turbo & Truth aside, will Castle be too hot to handle even for the man that summons fire? Or will Hechicero turn this Forbidden Door appetizer into sweet, sweet victory?

The bell rings and the fans fire up as these two get face to face. Hechi shoves Castle, Castle gets serious. They feel things out, tie up, and Hechi facelocks. Castle still powers Hechi to ropes, the ref calls the break, and the two let off clean. Castle gets fired up and eggs Hechi on. Hechi CHOPS, so Castle UPPERCUTS! They fire back and forth, CHOP for forearm, then Castle fires off a flurry! Castle runs, but HEchi follows to CROSSBODY! Hechi slips right into a SLEEPER at the ropes! Hechi shoves Castle away, goes up, and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Hechi kicks Castle around and eggs him on.

Hechi CLUBS away on Castle, runs, but Castle wrenches to LARIAT, KNEE, and DDT! The fans fire up as Castle gets a wild look in the eyes. Castle clamps on a half nelson, then CLUBS away on Hechi to get him up. Hechi fights with elbows of his own, but runs into an Alabama Lift! Castle spins, BANGAAA- NO, Hechi slips free, pops Castle up, and has the COBRA CLUTCH STRAITJACKET! Castle flails, pushes back to a cover, TWO! Hechi keeps the body scissors, wants the rear naked choke but Castle rolls. Hechi drags Castle up but Castle arm-drags free! Hechi BOOTS back, swings, but Castle blocks to ELBOW!

Castle snarls, runs, but Hechi follows to LARIAT in the corner! Hechi fires fast hands and a CHOP! Castle sits down, Kaun & Liona like what they see. Hechi powers up but runs into a clinch! EXPLODER! Castle and Hechi both rise, and the fans fire up with Castle! Hechi swings, but into another lift! Hechi sunset flips, TWO!! Castle just manages to escape, and he BOOTS Hechi! Hechi goes to a corner, Castle runs in but Hechi dodge! SHINING WIZARD! Hechi keeps going, LA MYSTICA LEG DROP! Cover, Hechi wins!

Winner: Hechicero, by pinfall

That was some in-ring magic for sure! The Gates of Agony celebrate with their new ally, will they and The Machine, Brian Cage, soon take over AEW and CMLL? But then Hechi beats up on Castle, puts him in a corner, and Liona HIP ATTACKS! Kaun METEORAS! The fans boo, but The Outrunners run in! Only to get CLOBBERED by The Gates… Hechi then feeds Castle to the Gates for the LARIAT SANDWICH! And they CLOSE- NO! Daniel Garcia hurries out here, with a chair! He and Daddy Magic have Castle’s back as they run off Hechi & The Gates! Will even The Alchemist of Lucha fear Red Death?

 

Backstage interview with Dante Martin.

Arkady Aura is with Angel Dorado, as well as his teammates, Darius Martin & Action Andretti. She brings up Dante facing Lee Moriarty in the TNT Championship qualifier. However, everyone else is banned from ringside. Dante says that’s fine, because Top Flight is about friendly competition. He remembers a time when Lee Moriarty was once about that. Darius asks if Dante is running. He’s not. Is he scared? He’s not. Because this is one of the best high-fliers today! High-flying and redeye-ing! Action promises that at Forbidden Door, Dante will be the NEW TNT Champion! But in steps Lio Rush. He says what’s up, long time no see. Good to see he has some new friends.

Not sure if any of them knew this or not, but Lio and Action go way back. That’s true. So as far as Darius, nice to finally meet you. Darius knows who Lio is, and won’t shake his hand. Okay, that’s fine. Just wanted to wish Dante luck tonight. Maybe see them around. Lio heads out, Action says yeah, great seeing him again. Top Flight heads out, but will Dante book him and the boys some golden tickets to Long Island? Or will #TAIGASTYLE make sure Shane Taylor Promotions takes over New York?

 

The Patriarchy is in the ring.

And “Mother” Shayna Wayne asks for everyone’s attention. They boo her? They boo a mother?! How dare you! Shayna demands they all get on their feet right now and pay respect to “the greatest father to ever live,” THEIR Patriarch, Christian Cage. And with that, Captain Charisma makes his way out here. Christian takes the mic and sits in the fancy chair they have for him. “Well, I didn’t exactly have ‘spending the most important holiday of the year’ in The Rust Belt, but here we are.” The fans boo but Christian says Youngstown needs to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts his business.

Now, he’d be remised if he didn’t acknowledge what today is. Today is the anniversary of his son, Nick Wayne’s biological father passing away. Christian says that can affect a child many different ways. You might wonder why the universe can be so cool. But in a strange way, Nick’s father dying was the best thing that could’ve ever happened to him, because it led him to Christian Cage. The fans boo but Christian says this veiled picture must of course be a gift for him. Did Nick commission this? Nick even has a card! Christian opens it up, and it says Happy Father’s Day. A homemade card from the heart? Should he read it?

“To Dad, You are the greatest TNT Champion in history,m and I can only dream of having half your tlanet, but I will keep striving to prove my worth. Love, Nick.” How thoughtful, Christian appreciates that. And uh, can we unveil the portrait now? Of course! The curtain is taken away, and it’s a failry impressive painting. Did Luchasaurus do this himself? Wow. Then uh, this is… Okay. But Nick’s card is unbelievable! He’s a wordsmith! It’s popping off the paeg! Christian has never been prouder, he will cherish this forever. And uh, Killswitch- The fans chant “LUCHASAURUS!” but he says shut up, he’s Killswitch! Killswitch, why can’t you be more like Nick?

Luchasaurus storms off! The fans cheer but Christian says he wasn’t excused! Get back in line! Christian has something important to say and everyone will want to hear this. Luchasaurus reluctantly stands back by the chair, and Christian says that’s a good looking guy in the picture either way. Now, it is no secret that Double Or Nothing was a couple weeks ago. And Christian clearly fell short in his quest to become AEW World Champion. But what you might not realize is that there is alternate footage clearly showing his shoulder was up! The EVPs want to do the right thing and show this footage, but he politely asked not to show it.

This family does not make excuses here! They just roll up their sleeves and get back to work! Christian vows to one day be World Champion, and that path starts with winning the Trios Championships! That’s right! Christian’s gift to his “sons” is that they will hold titles together. The fans still chant for Luchasaurus but Christian tells them to shut up! Now yes, it is uncommon for the father to give a gift to his children on Father’s Day, but that is what a good father would do. He would give anything to make his children smile. Hey, even Tony Khan’s dad gave him millions upon millions of dollars to start this company!

But here’s the thing, Tony Khan, this very instant, Christian Cage says this is HIS company! He is the greatest, most talked about and influential star in this sport! He will win every accolade until he goes down as THE greatest in history! So Tony, Christian is your father now. They are The Patriarchy, the next Trios Champions, the Faces of TNT, now and forever! Captain Charisma has spoken, but will his declaration become reality?

 

The Bang Bang Gang speaks.

Juice Robinson says it is the one-year anniversary of Collision, and they are the Collision Cowboys, the men who built this brick by brick! Juice broke his back carrying this place! Colten says that as such, they hold a lot of gold. There are a lot of teams gunning for them, but they can’t handle the pressure. House of Black tonight, and now The Patriarchy wants a shot? Yeah, it’s Father’s Day, but you don’t get special privilege. Get in line! Austin adds that House of Black, they’re not sure what’s going on, maybe they’ve been in the dark too long, but open your eyes, dilate the pupils, and uh, notice that Jay White isn’t here.

Tonight is NOT for the titles, but tonight is about proving whether or not if you can hang with the OGs! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP!

 

TNT Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Lee Moriarty VS Dante Martin!

As we heard from Dante, these two used to be friends, but ambition seems to have given #TAIGASTYLE a bit of a salty edge. Will Lee use that edge to clip Angel Dorado’s wings? Or will Dante prove that he not only does things the right way, but can win at the same time?

The bell rings, the fans rally as the two circle, and then Lee goes for a leg. Dante steps over, trips Lee, then speeds up. Lee drops, hurdles, but Dante stops to hurdle and drop. Lee handsprings, then shimmies and shakes. The fans cheer and the two reset. Dante and Lee feel things out, and the fans are behind Dante. Lee gives a testing kick, then the two knuckle lock. Lee wrenches, trips Dante, then GROUND DRAGON SCREWS! The fans are torn, but Lee drags Dante around by the leg< Dante kicks free, reaches up, and RANAS! The fans fire up, Dante speeds up, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then jumps to RANA again!

Lee flounders, Dante stays by ropes,. Lee runs up, Dante goes up and over! Lee tumbles out of the ring, Dante builds speed! Dante FLIES, but lands safe as Lee moves aside! Lee thinks he’s safe, but then Dante uses the corner to DROPKICK Lee down! Dante copies the shimmy and then drags Lee up. Dante CHOPS Lee against the railing! The fans fire up for that one, and Dante puts Lee in the ring. Dante then jumps right up to the apron, springboards, but Lee trips him up! Dante tumbles back down and Lee grins. Lee claps and the fans applaud, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Lee waits on Dante, and Dante slides back in. Lee stomps Dante at the ropes again and again and again! Dante writhes, Lee drags him up, then KNEES low. Lee fires m ore knees, then shoves Dante to RAM into him. Lee reels Dante in to HALF HATCH! Roll back and cover, TWO! Lee keeps on Dante with a hammerlock, then traps that arm to go after the other. Dante endures, even as Lee pushes on the arm. Lee twists the fingers and wrist to bend the arm, and then use it as a recliner! Dante endures as Lee gives a thumbs up. Lee then sits back up, to stomp the arm down! Dante writhes, Lee stomps him around, then Lee drags Dante up.

Lee fires more knees into Dante, shoves him, but Dante leaps up and over to sunset flip! TWO, and Lee ROCKS Dante with fast hands! Dante blocks a kick but not the KNEE! Dante sits down, Lee basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Lee is annoyed but he clamps onto the arm again. Dante endures, Lee bends the fingers and wrist, to JAM the fingers into the mat! Dante still endures, but Lee clamps on, chinbars, and pushes on the joint. The fans rally, Dante fights, but Lee throws knees to keep him down. Lee pulls on the chinbar but Dante powers up. Collision returns to single picture, and the fans rally as Dante pries free!

Dante arm-drags Lee away, Lee runs up, but Dante BOOTS him! ROLLING ELBOW! Dante ROCKS Lee again, whips, but the bad arm jams up! Lee whips Dante away, runs up, but Dante slips to the outside! Dante ROCKS Lee, springboards to go up and around, but Lee grabs a leg. Dante kicks him away, jumps again and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Lee survives but Dante stays focused. The fans fire up with Dante as he rises, and Dante reels Lee in. Lee fights the half nelson, so Dante CLUBS away! Lee wrenches free of the waistlock, brings Dante to a knee, and he SNAPS the fingers! What a villain!

Lee gets Dante’s arms tired up, clinches, YOYO URENAGE! Into the BORDER CITY STRETCH!! Dante endures, reaches out, and he crawls with the one free arm! Lee kicks at that arm, but Dante uses a leg for the ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as Lee lets off, and then Lee brings Dante up! Lee suplexes into a SLAM, then covers, TWO!! Dante escapes that deep tuck and Lee is frustrated. Lee kicks at Dante while they’re both down, then Lee rises up. Lee aims, Dante rises, and Lee runs up, but Dante ducks the kick! JUMP KNEE! Lee wobbles, but he BOOTS back! Lee runs up, into a KNEE from Dante!

Dante goes up, METEORA! Lee is down and the fans fire up as Dante climbs a corner! MAMBA SPLASH!! Cover, Dante wins!

Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall (advances to Forbidden Door)

And with that, the fourth spot is filled! Dante joins Mark Briscoe, Konosuke Takeshita & Jack Perry, but wait! Shane Taylor & Anthony Ogogo show up to mug Dante! The fans boo as STP are sore losers! BODY SHOT from Ogogo! But here come Darius & Action! They fight with STP but that’s 3v2! Shane DECKS Darius, Ogogo GERMAN SUPLEXES Action! URENAGE for Darius! The fans boo more but STP doesn’t care. Lio Rush hurries out here, he asks what this is all about. Shane dares Lio to bring his little ass in here! Lio does, and he slips under Shane to shove Ogogo into him! Then he schoolboys Ogogo to SPIN KICK!

Shane whips Lio but Lio stops himself at the ropes! Lio eggs Shane on, then DUMPS him out! Lee runs up but Lio TOSSES Him out, and HANDSPRING KICKS Lee into Shane! Lio stands tall with Top Flight, and refs hurry out to stop this from getting any wilder. Will Shane Taylor make sure Lio meets his final hour soon enough? As for Dante and Top Flight, they nod respect to Lio, but still no handshakes. Will Lio just have to give them all time to trust him?

 

Hikaru Shida speaks.

“I have been in AEW since day one. I am a three-time world champion. I am the longest reigning AEW Women’s World Champion. And I am officially entering the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. That tournament needs me. And Wembley Stadium needs me! And the Shining Samurai will go to Wembley Stadium to once again become Women’s Champion.” Will Shida shine all the way through the Summer to then go All In on an incredible fourth Women’s World Championship reign?

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS Anthony Henry!

The Violent Artist has been trying to do things on his own, but even now, Roderick Strong & The Kingdom tag along. They’re on commentary for this match, and BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite! It will be an “All-Star 8 Man” as Roderick Strong joins forces with Kyle Fletcher, Konosuke Takeshita and Zack Sabre Jr. VS Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy, Dante Martin & Mark Briscoe. Will the Savior of the Backbreaker still be able to support his “friend” here tonight knowing that now? Or will Roddy find himself rooting for the other guy?

The bell rings and the two circle. They feel things out, and tie up. Henry powers Kyle back but Kyle turns that around. They go around and around, Kyle waistlocks but Henry switches. Kyle switches and drags Henry down Henry blocks one kick but has to duck the other! The fans cheer as Henry backs off, and the two reset. Kyle and Henry feel things out, knuckle lock, and go shoulder to shoulder. They go around, Henry throws Kyle down but Kyle has the leg guard up. Kyle kicks one knuckle lock apart to trip Henry up. Henry uses a leg guard now, but Kyle stands. Henry uses body scissors to climb up and go for the arm!

Kyle moves around, back drops and ARMBAR! Henry scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! Kyle lets go, KICKS at Henry, then wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! This relentless Kyle is the kind Roddy likes. Kyle wrenches, whips, but Henry holds ropes! Kyle KICKS the leg, then hooks it. Henry turns that around to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Henry traps Kyle’s head to NECK TWIST! Henry holds on, grabs an arm, then gives some kicks. Kyle just gets mad! The fans rally for Kyle and Roddy also coaches Kyle. Kyle stands, Henry KICKS, but Kyle ROCKS Henry. They fire off forearms, henry fires a strike fest!

Kyle blocks a kick, gives a strike fest in return, then SWEEPS the legs! The fans fire up as Henry flounders to a corner. Kyle runs up to forearm SMASH! Then wrench and ELOBW BREAKER, to a KNEE, to a suplex and FALCON ARROW into the ARMBAR! Henry TAPS, Kyle wins!

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by submission

Roddy says that’s because of his presence! Roddy says Kyle is clearly missing something, or someone, to help him get that edge. Will Kyle show Roddy plenty of that “edge” this Wednesday?

 

Six Man Tag: The Bang Bang Gang VS The House of Black!

We heard from Rock Hard Juice Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin earlier tonight, but now is time to put up or shut up! Malakai, Brody & Buddy have been World Trios Champions before, but will they get one step closer to becoming Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions? Or will the House fold when facing the Collision Cowboys in their house?

The trios sort out, but then they all step to each other. The fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” but we get Juice and The Dark Father. Juice and Malakai circle, then tie up. Malakai headlocks, Juice powers out but Malakai runs him over! Cover, ONE and Juice arm-drags! Malakai headscissors, Juice kips free, but Malakai avoids the arm-drag to sit down. The fans fire up, so Juice lifts a leg a la dogs. Malakai stands up to KICK Juice down! Juice scrambles away, Austin tags in. Austin is all fired up, but then Brody tags in! Austin turns around and tags Colten! Colten says that’s fine, he can bark it up. Brody swings, Colten bobs ‘n’ weaves and ROCKS-

Er, well, no, Brody doesn’t seem too bothered. Brody runs Colten over, he runs Austin over, then runs them both over! The Gunns stagger up, Brody runs up to DOUBLE LRIAT them out! Juice runs in but Brody TOSSES him out onto The Gunns! The fans fire up as The House stands together, they all build speed, but the Bang Bang Gang gets in to say BANG! So the House DECKS them all! The House tosses everyone out and the brawl is on as Collision goes picture in picture!

Brody is after Juice, Malakai TOSSES Austin, and Buddy CHOPS Colten. Malakai BOOTS Austin into the crowd! Brody sits Juice in a corner to CHOP! Malakai joins in to mug Juice, and Buddy KNEES Colten. Brody brings Juice around to whip hard into railing! Austin returns but Malakai KNEES him down. Brody CLUBS Austin, the fans fire up, and Brody CHOPS Austin. Buddy brings Colten over to join in, and he UPPERCUTS Colten into a seat. Brody herds Austin and Juice that way, the Bang Bang Gang all take seats, and Malakai KICKS away on them all! The fans hoot and bark with Brody as he runs in, to TRIPLE CROSSBODY!

The fans cheer and high-five Brody as The Bang Bang Gang all slumps down. Brody drags Colten up to put him in, and then stalks Colten to his empty corner. Brody grins at Colten’s fear, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns again and Buddy tags Malakai. They mug Colten, then Malakai wrenches to tag Buddy. Buddy climbs up to DOUBLE STOMP Colten’s arm! Buddy taunts Austin, goes back to Colten and wrenches. Tag to Malakai and he KNEES the arm! Malakai wrenches but Colten throws him down by his hair! Tag to Austin and Austin stomps away on Malakai! The ref counts, Austin lets off, but Malakai BOOTS him! Austin runs up to CLOBBER Malakai! Austin throws hands, then tags in Colten. They whip Malakai, to BODY SHOT, KNEE LIFT, and DROPKICK! Juice tags in to SENTON! Cover, TWO!

Juice stands on Malakai, the Gunns YANK Buddy & Brody down! Juice whips Malakai hard into the corner! Juice stomps away on Malakai, argues with the ref, then drags Malakai back up. Juice snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Malakai is still in this and Juice is frustrated. Juice stands Malakai up to bump him off buckles, then he tags Austin in. They mug Malakai, Austin asks “Who’s the Ass Boy now?” “YOU!!” Austin frowns, then fires hands on Malakai. Tag to Colten, he stomps away on Malakai. The ref counts, Colten ROCKS Malakai but the fans rally up. Juice tags in, he stomps at Malakai, then eggs him on.

Juice HEADBUTTS, but Malakai ROCKS Juice, DECKS the Gunns, then fires off on Juice! Juice blocks a kick, to LEG LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Malakai is still in this and Juice is upset with the ref’s count! Juice clamps onto Malakai for a chinlock but Malakai endures. Malakai fights up as the fans rally, and Malakai KICKS the bad leg! Juice THROAT CHOPS back! Malakai falls into a corner, Juice goes corner to corner, CANNONBALL only gets buckles! Malakai crawls, as does Juice, hot tag to Colten! He CLOBBERS Malakai, then whips him away. Colten runs up, but only gets buckles! Austin tags in, grabs Malakai’s foot, but Malakai BOOTS him into Colten!

Hot tag to Buddy! The fans fire up as the Aussie Juggernaut fires off strikes and a BOOT to Austin! POP-UP KNEE for Colten! Austin runs up, into a tilt-o-whirl and LAWN DART into Colten! Buddy reels Austin in for the JACKHAMMER! Cover, Juice breaks it! The fans boo but Juice hurries to BLAST Brody! Juice goes back to Buddy to whip, but Buddy lands safe on the apron! Buddy GAMANGIRIS Juice, bumps him off buckles, then BOOTS him away! Buddy goes up, Juice staggers around, into the METEORA! Cover, TWO! Buddy’s bad knee is bothering him, but he hobbles up to tag in Brody. Brody storms in and the fans fire up as we go picture in picture again.

Buddy has medics check his knee, he may have taken himself out when he hit Juice. Brody does his best to focus on the match, and he puts Austin in a corner. Buddy is in some serious pain, though. Brody runs up to CLOBBER Austin in the corner! Brody hoots and barks and gets the fans back into this. Brody roars, runs, but Colten saves his brother! The Bang Bang Gang regroups on the outside, the medics are still checking on Buddy but it isn’t looking good. This is basically 3v2 now. Juice & The Gunns strategize, knowing they have the advantage now. The ref has Bang Bang Gang settle down a minute while Buddy is helped to the back.

The fans applaud as Buddy is doing his best to walk on the good leg, and Collision returns to single picture. But the Gunns jump on Brody, they and Juice mug him, and Malakai tries to help but is sent back out! The fans chant “YOU SUCK!” but the Bang Bang Gang doesn’t care! Tag to Colten and he stomps away on Brody. The ref counts, Colten tags Austin back in, and now Austin stomps Brody. Tag to Juice, he gets some stomps in! The fans still taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” but Juice blows boogers onto Brody! Then Juice CANNONBALLS! Direct hit and Juice covers, TWO! Brody stays in this and the fans fire up!

Austin tags in, then he tags Colten. The Gunns get Brody up, whip him to ropes, but Brody denies the 3:10 with a LARIAT! And another LARIAT! Juice runs up, but into a BOSS MAN SLAM!

Malakai snarls and the fans fire up! Colten rises, distracts the ref with talk of injury, and Juice grabs a leg! Malakai kicks Juice away, but Colten runs up, FLYING FOREARM! Cover, TWO!! Colten’s shot doesn’t finish this but he tags to Austin. The Gunns get Malakai up, double whip, 3:10- NO, Malakai BOOTS Colten, BOOTS Austin, but Juice HOTSHOTS! FAMOUSER from Austin! Cover, TWO!! Malakai survives and Austin is stunned! The Gunns reload, call their shot, and they coordinate with Juice! Juice goes up, but Brody is back! The Gunns dodge him, 3:10 TO YUMA!!! But they have to get Malakai down!

Austin turns Malakai, Juice finally aims, but PAC is here?! The Bastard spooks Juice, trips him up, then flips off Austin! Austin swings on Pac, but turns around into THE END!!! Cover, The House wins!!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

The Bastard told The Bang Bang Gang that he was not going to let what they did to Death Triangle slide! The House still gets the win, even with Buddy going down with a bad knee. But then The Patriarchy has to come in via the tron to ruin all the fun. Christian Cage says congratulations to The House. Congratulations on becoming the #1 contenders to the World Trios Championships. The only problem is, they’re not a trio anymore. The Patriarchy reveals they took out Buddy!! The Patriarchy leaves Buddy down and out, right as Malakai & Brody rush to the back! Will Christian Cage stoop to new lows just so he and his “sons” can rise up the ranks?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision for the anniversary episode, and I appreciate it was more rock, less talk. The only real talky stuff was everything Christian Cage did, but even that wasn’t so bad because he didn’t take forever getting to the point. He takes credit for all the good Collision content, heavily favors Nick Wayne over Killswitchasaurus, and then tries to hide his failure at Double Or Nothing by going for the trios titles, which he can totally just use Nick and Luchasaurus to win for him when the time comes. Really good promo from Bang Bang Gang in response, and great main event between Bang Bang Gang and House of Black.

If Buddy isn’t actually hurt, he was doing amazing acting tonight. And with how Christian “attacked” Buddy, it seems the story is the same either way: The House will need a new third man to challenge Jay White & The Gunns. Pac showed up to stick it to the Bang Bang Gang, so maybe The Bastard becomes an honorary member of The House of Black just to take the titles. And honestly, what better feud than Christian “Greatest Father Ever” Cage and “The Bastard” Pac, with how “bastard” also has the old definition of “a fatherless child.” And honestly, when is Luchasaurus going to break away from Christian? Should happen during the trios title match.

Really good 8 Man Tag, but I should’ve figured BCC would win, and that Moxley would again tell Naito that he’s done after Forbidden Door. It’s the same thing he’s been saying all week since Dominion last Sunday, he’ll probably keep saying it for those who weren’t paying attention, and I am starting to think that’s just because he’s going to lose in Long Island so Naito can have finish his last run with the world title. And good integration as Lio says hey to Dante before Dante has his match with Lee. Great win for Dante, and I figured he would because you need a true high-flyer in a ladder match. Lio helping fight off Shane Taylor Promotions is also interesting, can’t wait to see which way this splits. Could someone be leaving Top Flight to join STP?

Kyle VS Henry was a strange filler-not-filler, because at least we got the news of an 8 Man Tag happening for Dynamite. It’ll be a great match, with some Forbidden Door build involved as Cassidy will be facing Zack Sabre Jr. and now we’ll be seeing Mark Briscoe, Dante Martin, and Konosuke Takeshita in the ladder match. With that, feels like one of the Kyles takes a loss. Either Roddy purposefully costs O’Reilly or accidentally costs Fletcher. I’m thinking the former so that Roddy can insist O’Reilly still needs him to be relevant. Then they can take that feud through the Summer, maybe even into the Men’s Owen Hart Cup.

Really good promo from Shida, and she’ll be a great part of the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Probably won’t win it, though, with the potential story of Mariah May challenging Toni Storm, or with Willow looking to go back-to-back. Very good match from Hechicero VS Dalton Castle, and it was a rather clever move that The Outrunners were the pseudo-boys that failed to save Castle while Garcia & Menard succeeded. Add Angelo Parker to that and you’ve got an 8 Man Tag right there of Garcia, Menard, Parker & Castle VS Hechicero & The Cage of Agony. Very good No DQ match from Deonna VS Rosa, but as I said earlier in the week, I figured Deonna would win. She’s a Heel, the current champions are Faces, she will make a good challenger to maybe the TBS Championship for All In.

And a great promo from The Acclaimed to call out The Bucks for their continued abuses of power. Cutler being the scrub that takes beatings on behalf of The EVPs is a pretty silly recurring gag, but Daniels getting in on the fun was good stuff. The Acclaimed surely do find a way to win the Title Eliminator in order to force a title match that The Bucks probably cheat to win. This probably still leads to Acclaimed helping Swerve for Blood & Guts, as I sensed on Wednesday.

My Score: 8.8/10

Storm breaks through Iron Will Windsor, and revels in the praise of her adoring public. She also holds Mariah close, but will she still have both once she passes through The Forbidden Door? Or will the Fighting Gravure Idol steal more than just the spotlight?

 

Backstage interview with Harley Cameron.

Arkady Aura is with The Outcasts’ crazier component, and says she’s a bit surprised to see Harley without Saraya, considering the big win last week. Yeah, yeah, who cares? Saraya is not here as a form of protest! All these women are all declaring for the Women’s Owen Hart Tournament. Oh~, declaring~! What are we? Royal subjects? Oh, a royal decree from the king! Or maybe we’re more old Southern women, “Oh, I do declare!” The only one who should be declaring anything is Saraya. Because the winner gets a world title shot at All In. And who was it that won last year at Wembley Stadium? Saraya! What a declaration!

And with that said, Saraya’s done it before, and she will do it again. And now Harley declares this interview over, goodbye. Then from Harley’s mouth to the world’s ears, will Saraya make sure she is the one crowned the 2024 Queen of Harts before crowning herself champion once again?

 

AEW hears from Thunder Rosa and Deonna Purrazzo.

La Mera Mera tells “Deonna, you might’ve been a little bit busy, but there were some flashing news. Saturday is the one-year anniversary of Collision. And as a tradition, Thunder Rosa always likes to pick a fight. And who else than you?” But The Virtuosa asks back, what does Rosa not understand here? Rosa’s selfishness has forced Deonna to embrace her own. But La Mera Mera isn’t owed anything. From where Deonna comes from, those who want respect must show respect. And those who refuse get respect beaten into them. Saturday Night Collision, Rosa VS Deonna, NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! And Deonna asks what Rosa thinks happens when her head collides with a chair.

Rosa says nothing will stop her from showing Deonna the real respect of a warrior. No disqualifications, no problems. Happy Anniversary, Collision! But who will celebrate by standing over the other’s battered body?

 

Six Man Tag: The Cage of Agony VS Solomon Tupu, Jay Marston & Kevin Gutierrez!

Brian Cage, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona have broken away from Swerve’s House to do things their way. So far, so good, for them. But will their opponents wish it’d been another three sent into The Cage of Agony?

The trios sort out, Tupu starts against Kaun, and the two circle. Liona distracts Tupu and Kaun DROPKICKS Tupu into the corner! Kaun CHOPS, then fires off forearms!

Then the Gates get Tupu up to CLOSE THE GATES!

Cage drags Marston over, and the trio TRIPLE SLAMS him! Kaun covers, The Cage of Agony wins!

Winners: The Cage of Agony, by pinfall

This dangerous trio is only more dangerous now that they’re the ones in charge! Will they be right on the heels of the Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions?

 

Rocky Romero VS Shota Umino!

It’s another Forbidden Door appetizer as Azucar “welcomes” The Roughneck back to AEW! #SHOOTER has learned a lot from Jon Moxley over the past four years, will he show all those lessons have paid off? Or will Rocky make it clear Shota’s still got a lot to learn?

The bell rings and the two shake hands to show there’s sportsmanship here. The fans cheer, the two tie up, and Shota wrenches to a wristlock. Rocky rolls, slips around, facelocks and cravats.

Then a basement dropkick! The fans cheer and Shota does a dance similar to Mercedes Mone’s! Shota stomps Rocky around, CLUBS him, then stalks him to ropes.

Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt & Jay Lethal VS Rosario Grillo!

The One in a Billion is a big, big man, but he still has a lot to prove if he wants to be the best of the best. Will he finally start building on a win streak? Or will Rosario overcome this mountain of a man?

The bell rings, and Satnam offers a handshake? Rosario takes it, but Satnam won’t let go! Rosario kicks and kicks and CHPOS and CHOPS, but Satnam’s grip is too strong! And speaking of, he grabs Rosario by the neck, to PO-UP BEARHUG!! Satnam ragdolls Rosario! Rosario is OUT, Satnam wins!

Winner: Satnam Singh, by pinfall

Satnam TOSSES Rosario aside, having made quick work of the mere mortal. Sonjay Dutt gets in the ring with a mic to say, “Hey hey hey hey hey! Bubba (Jay Lethal), tell ’em, what’re you gonna do?” Lethal takes the mic to say ladies and gentlemen, Satnam Singh is on a freakin’ roll! Satnam just squashed Grillo in record time, and Lethal is so impressed that not only will he beat his opponent tonight, but he and Sonjay have a little side bet that Lethal can do it even faster than what Satnam just did. Satnam chuckles and Lethal says he’s done waiting! Bring that poor shmuck out here! Did Lethal not read the match card? Lethal’s up against THE BASTARD!!

Fans fire up as Pac makes his entrance out here. Pac already said he was in a bad mood on Dynamite, and surely Lethal taking him lightly isn’t helping things. Will Pac make sure Sonjay wins that side bet with Lethal?

Pac kicks again, Lethal blocks again, but then Pac kicks Lethal away! Lethal comes back, trips Pac, and steps through, but into a cradle counter! TWO!! Lethal escapes, gets around, back suplex!

But Lethal still hits a CUTTER! But that wasn’t lethal enough, so Lethal handsprings again! LETHAL- NO, Pac dodges to LARIAT!! And then, BRUTALIZER!! Lethal is caught, he QUITS, Pac wins!!

Winner: Pac, by submission

Pac makes Lethal suffer a few seconds longer before letting go. That’s what Lethal gets for calling The Bastard a shmuck! Pac is going to be in the Men’s Owen Hart Tournament, will he win it all to go All In for the AEW World Championship?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, even with an extra squash match for the fun of it. Cage of Agony are definitely rolling, not sure they’ll be going for the trios titles while a Heel faction like Bang Bang Gang has them, but Cage, Kaun & Liona would definitely be a tough challenge for them. And I really liked that they segued from Satnam’s squash win to Lethal’s great main event with Pac. Great win for Pac to build momentum towards the Owen Hart Cup, I do like the possibility of Pac being in the main event of All In. Whether Pac is facing Ospreay or Swerve for the world title, he’ll give us great promos in the build and an awesome match in Wembley.

Great match from Rocky and Shota, and a great win for Shota. There might be something in the works for Forbidden Door, but I don’t see Shota getting in on title stories in AEW. Really good promo from Deonna and Rosa, and their No DQ match is going to be awesome stuff. That match can really go either way, but something tells me that Deonna wins. As it stands, we’ve got two Face champions in the Women’s Division, and that won’t change after Forbidden Door, so Deonna is a very strong Heel to go after Storm or Mone. And speaking of, great opener out of Storm VS Windsor, which I clearly thought was gonna be the main event but oh well. Still a good showing for Windsor and a good win for Storm, and Storm has momentum going to Forbidden Door, though she surely isn’t losing.

My Score: 8.7/10
