AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Young Bucks VS Top Flight!

Matt and Nick Jackson only just got these titles at Full Gear, but they’re willing to prove that the best champions are fighting champions! Will “Air Wolf” Darius and “Angel Dorado” Dante Martin take advantage of this golden opportunity? Or will they just be the newest guests of a Superkick Party?

AEW plays a quick video package to explain the origins of Top Flight. Growing up, they watched teams just like the Young Bucks and were inspired to get into wrestling. Now, they do their own thing and carve their own path. It’s great to have a brother for a tag partner, they have an advantage knowing what the other is thinking. Darius got a little tired being in the same spot, so he messaged Matt Jackson with a long shot. Matt replied and blew Darius’ mind! Being so young at just 21 and 19 is a huge advantage for them, and they feel more than ready to take flight. They’d be lying if they pretended they weren’t nervous, but anything is possible.

With that, the Bucks make their entrance, the introductions are made and the belts are raised. The opportunity of a lifetime for one pair of brothers begins to open the night!

The teams sort out, Darius starts against Nick. The two circle, then Darius runs and speeds things up. Darius holds ropes to fake out the superkick! Darius keeps going, and fakes Nick out again! Darius sunset flips, Nick rolls through to knuckle lock and CHOP! “LUCHA LIBRE~” arm-drag! But Darius handsprings through! Fans are fired up but Nick is flustered! Darius blocks the superkick to enziguri back! Nick tags Matt and Dante jumps in, Top Flight double CHOP Matt! Top Flight shove Matt, sweep the legs, Dante cartwheels while Darius rolls Matt, KICK SANDWICH! Cover, TWO!

Dante claps and fans follow along as they chant, “Top Flight!” Matt headlocks, Dante powers out but things speed up again. Dante hurdles, hurdles and dropkicks Matt down! Fans fire up with Dante and he drags Matt up to whip him away. Dante runs in to hit an A-List Lariat! Tag to Darius, snap suplex and kip up to tag Dante, for the slingshot senton! Top Flight KICK Nick down, and Matt bails out the side! Fans fire up for Top Flight as they both fake the Bucks out! The Bucks nod as they have to respect the swagger. The fans rally as the Bucks go back to their corner, and Matt gets back in.

Matt circles with Dante and tie up. Matt headlocks, Dante powers out but things speed up again. Matt fakes Dante out but Dante flips all the way through is own dropkick! Dante blocks the superkick, spins Matt around and back suplexes but Nick tags in before the atomic drop! Matt reverses the whip, then baits Dante into Nicks SUPERKICK! Matt sees Darius coming, headscissor dropkick takes him down! Matt then WRECKS Darius with a dropkick and skins the cat while Nick SHINING WIZARDS Dante in the corner! Nick has Dante, the Bucks combine, SHOTGUN BULLDOG! Fans fire up with the Bucks now as Nick brings Dante back up.

Nick sends Dante to the corner for a buckle bump, then tags Matt back in. Matt snapmares Dante, drops a fist then goes after legs. Matt steps in, for the SHARPSHOOTER!

Darius goes up but Nick SUPERKICKS the legs out! Darius is stuck, Matt brings Dante around, BUCKLE BOMB into Darius’ back! Matt catapults Dante into Nick’s GAMANGIRI! Then DOUBLJE STOMPS across the knees! Somersault and DRAPING BACKSTABBER to Darius! The Bucks shake their heads as they focus on Dante.

Tag to Matt, he gut wrenches Dante and Nick aims, but no Meltzer as Dante shoves Matt into Nick! Dante dodges Matt and tornillo headscissors Matt into buckles! Dante hot tags Darius! Darius shoulders in then slingshots up and over! Darius CLOBBERS Matt with a clothesline, then CHOPS him down! Darius CHOPS Matt again, then whips him to ropes. Matt reverses, Darius gets around to shove, for a SPANISH FLY! Cover, Nick breaks it in time! Nick whips but Darius reverses to send Nick out. Darius and Dante coordinate, Dante slingshots to hold the ropes open as Darius DIVES! Direct hit into both Bucks, but now Dante comes back to FLY! Direct hit again and Top Flight has the Bucks on the proverbial ropes!

Fans rally as Dante puts Matt back in. Dante tags back in, Top Flight double whip Matt corner to corner but Nick returns. Top Flight gets Nick, whips him at Matt but Nick reverses and Matt BOOTS Dante! Darius back suplexes Nick but Nick lands on his feet. Matt boots Dante into Darius, but Darius ALLEY OOPS Dante way over Nick! Dante waistlocks Nick, who still has Darius, but Nick shoves Darius at Matt. Matt elbows Darius, Nick elbows Dante, but Darius elbows Nick while Matt hops up! Darius uses Matt like a wall to jump and PELE Nick! Dante runs at Matt, FLIPPING DRAGON RANA!! Cover, TWO!!

Nick DECKS Darius, Matt SUPERKICKS Dante, and Nick tags back in. B T E TRIGGER!! Cover, the Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

The Bucks almost busted in this match, but this is why they’re the champions! But wait, Jack Evans and Angelico jump the rail to attack Top Flight! The Hybrid2 get away before the Bucks can get at them! Evans and Angelico ranted on Dark about wanting politics and favoritism to stop in AEW, but their bitterness won’t ruin this moment for the young Darius and Dante. Will the Martin brothers get back to these titles some day?

 

“The Inner Circle slays Vegas, baby!”

In a montage, Chris Jericho, MJF, and the boys have a night on the town! Sammy Guevara wins big in Blackjack again. Wait, how did his cards change?! Ortiz, did you see what happened? MJF says a 6 and 7 isn’t a blackjack. Sammy glares at MJF as the montage continues. MJF gets Santana to blow on the dice for him, and they get 7 in Craps! But no hugging. Handshakes are fine, though. Then they go to a rocker burlesque show. Wardlow and Jake Hager can’t stop glaring at each other. MJF and Jericho get drinks, but while MJF wants Slippery Nipples, Jericho wants Peppermint Schnapps. MJF ups the “ante” to tequila, but Jericho ups it to vodka. MJF goes with rum, Jericho says Canadian cooking sherry.

MJF tells the “barkeep” that he has a thirst that can only be quenched by one thing: Moonshine! Jericho counters with… “100 proof grain alcohol EVERCLEAR!” He can’t be serious. The bartender says that hasn’t been served since the- THEY KNOW! Bottom’s up. MJF and Jericho chug it down, and it burns!! Moving on, with literal help from the boys, MJF and Jericho realize that was a bad idea. But Santana and Ortiz are ready to move this to the next level. KONNAN is here! He’s always got the best stuff, and he knows exactly what they need. BOOM! A cloud of smoke follows them, and Konnan swears he sees a dragon. There’s no such thing, man! Then what’s that over there? DRAGON!! Piff welcomes them to Vegas. Wow he’s real! Don’t touch him.

Another montage as the boys do their best to look sexy for the ladies. Who is that with his shirt off?! Sammy says he hates MJF. No he doesn’t. Yes, he does! HAHAHA! Hager and Wardlow are still staring each other down! But instead of fighting, Wardlow grabs some guy to DECK him! Hager does the same to some other guy! And so on, and so on! Moving on, an Elvis impersonator has somehow joined the group. To be continued…?

 

AEW shares Director X’s Boundless: The History of a Revolution.

Everyone knew coming in that they were a long shot. “We were opposed instantly by a giant juggernaut with a 40 year head start in pro-wrestling.” But they’re making a company that is wrestling by wrestlers for wrestling fans. Anything can happen, living literally their best lives and that was just year one. “If you don’t believe in yourself, why would anyone believe in you?”

 

AEW hears from Jon Moxley.

“This is a crazy ass ride I’ve been on for 16 years. But recently, now, finally, the whole world makes sense to me. How did I get here? How have I been AEW World Champion for so long?” The answer is Moxley’s dad. A 6’3″, 250 pound, “brick sh*t house,” box your ear if you got out of line. And scary. One day Moxley’s dad is in town, picks him up from the police station but doesn’t hit him. Instead, he just says something Moxley never forgot: “We’re the good guys. No matter what happens, no matter what’s going on around you, just remember: We’re the good guys.”

Moxley’s challengers have tried to lie, cheat and steal the title away from him. He’s been jumped, beat up, faced monsters and technicians, even his own friends. But Moxley always know what to do and always has. “We’re the good guys.” And now the whole world is bearing down on him, his body feels like hell to where he can’t get out of bed in the morning. He has a pregnant wife at home, he’s holding onto two titles for two different companies, he’s got challengers coming from ever which way, so what does he do? Moxley knows what to do. “We’re the good guys.”

So tonight, Moxley will go, sign the contract without hesitation, and look Kenny Omega in the eye as he shakes Omega’s hand, and then let him know in no uncertain terms, Moxley is the best in the world. “I am the AEW World Champion. I’m my dad’s son. And I am Jon G*DDAMN Moxley. And that is never gonna change.”

Tony Schiavone presides over the AEW World Championship contract signing!

“Needless to say, this is the biggest match we have ever signed for Dynamite. Winter is Coming, and it’s only two weeks away!” Kenny Omega challenges Jon Moxley, and is out first! Justin Roberts gives us a new list of Omega accolades: “Like Jon Moxley, he is undefeated in 2020 singles competition. Like Jon Moxley, he has been ranked #1 on the PWI 500. Unlike Jon Moxley, he is a Wrestling Observer Hall of Famer. And also unlike Jon Moxley, he has trained a failure at the Rush Fitness in North Carolina~!” It is Kenny, OOOOOOOMEEEEEGAAA~! And yes, the Sweepettes are back in their 80’s jazzercise outfits. Omega finally walks out on stage, revels in his pyro, and goes to the ring.

And then without much fanfare, which is his style, is Jon Moxley! At least, we thought. Wait, backstage, Moxley is DOWN!? Who attacked the champion?! His nose has blood coming from it and medics are calling for a backboard. Whoever did this, they hit him hard! Well, what does Omega have to say about this? “Look, I’m not one for this psychology type stuff, Tony.” Last time was an elbow, this time it’s a bloody nose. Omega won’t let Moxley avoid anything this time. Winter is Coming, Omega will be there, so hopefully Moxley will, too. Make sure to get this. Omega signs his part of the contract, but the pen is a little dry. There it is. That’s it for Omega! Will Moxley be able to compete with only two weeks left?

 

The Inner Circle’s Vegas trip, part 2.

Jericho just wants to say that they’re stronger than ever with their new member… ELVIS! They chant for the impersonator and he says, “Thank you. Thank you very much!” MJF says he needs to say something. Wardlow keeps him from falling over. MJF says he always saw himself as a lone wolf, but that now he wants to be part of a wolfpack. He has found that wolfpack! “I love you guys like blood brothers!” Yes, blood! Sammy will cut himself right now! WHOA, WHOA, WHOA! Sammy, stop! Don’t get all freaky on us! But MJF says it’ll be okay, man. They’re the Inner Circle! Sin City! And it’s a full moon! Wanna know what MJF wants to do right now? What’s that? “AO AO AOOOO!” They’re howling to the moon!

And then the next morning… Jericho wakes up next to Elvis, and they have gin?! Ew! And of course, he has a hangover. They don’t remember what happened. MJF wakes up in a tub, but he finds Sammy in a fountain. “At least I’m not soft.” Whatever, Sammy, shut up. Apparently Sammy wrote all over MJF’s face. After all, it says “Sammy Waz Here” on MJF’s forehead. Sammy drags himself up out of the fountain with help of the statue, and notices a ring on his finger. Did he get married last night? Ortiz hasn’t stopped pumping iron, either. OH no, Sammy has THREE wives?! There’s big and strong Mrs. Guevara, very old Mrs. Guevara, and the mysterious frisky Mrs. Guevara, whose face is obscured in the picture. Ortiz says that’s awesome! “I’ve always wanted a Mormon friend!”

Jericho and Elvis find Santana feeding chickens. Who brought the farm animals? Jericho calls out to the group, and they here crying…? Jericho and Santana open a door, and it’s… SWOGGLE?! This manbaby ain’t Santana’s… To be continued!

 

Jericho joins commentary!

And his head is still hurting. Like JR hanging out with the Four Horsemen in 1986 in South Carolina! But while there was a lot of fun, the seven members of the Inner Circle are getting back to what they do best: beating people up! Next week, Jericho says they’re going to be back as he and Hager beat up SCU! The first in a long line of casualties with the new and improved Inner Circle!

Pac thinks he’s tough? Kingston is going to put him through a gauntlet! But REY FENIX jumps in! And he’s fighting his friends to defend Pac! After all, Death Triangle was a team before these guys were!

But what about Penta? He’s leaving his brother and Pac out to dry! Kingston stomps Fenix while Blade keeps Pac down. NOW Penta is here, and he has a chair! But is he here to help The Fam?

And throws her into railing! The ref can’t get Rosa to stop raining down fists on Britt’s head! Extra refs come out to pull Rosa off but Rosa just gets loose! Rosa and Britt brawl but the refs pull them apart again. Britt tells Rosa to go back to NWA but Rosa gets loose to go after her again! Fans want to “Let Them Fight!” but when will we see it in the ring?

 

The Dark Order has an announcement.

John Silver has Anna Jay look back on her career. Before she joined the Dark Order, she was a rookie, the “Star of the Show.” Not anymore! Now she’s the QUEENSLAYER! She’s won her last four matches and is in the top five! That’s why Mr. Brodie Lee DEMANDED Anna gets her title match next week! Anna tells Hikaru Shida that the last time they wrestled, Shida took advantage of a rookie. But next week, Jay will reintroduce herself as Number 99. Silver says Jay is bringing gold to the Dark Order! He’s much more pumped up about that than Jay is, but will Jay get fired up once she is facing the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

AEW has other news about next week!

After the confrontation we saw tonight, The Butcher & The Blade will take on PAC and Rey Fenix 2v2! Is the Fam truly through? And Will Hobbs returns to action, will he impose his will on another opponent?

Taz joins commentary as his guys, “Absolute” Ricky Starks and “The Machine” Brian Cage are about to take on two guys they cannot stand! But will the American Nightmare and the NEW Face of TNT show Taz, Starks and the FTW Champion what it really means to be #Relentless?

AEW returns with a quick message from Darby. Outside a church, with stained glass and gargoyles, Darby is perched on the roof with his TNT Championship. And he skates through the halls with candles guiding the way. Darby goes to the stained glass, his one leg on fire. What does it mean? What will it mean for his opponents here tonight?

The teams sort out and Darby starts with Starks. They circle, fans rally already, and Darby ties up with Starks. Darby facelocks, Starks wrenches out to waistlock and mat slam! Darby gets up, facelocks but Starks slips out to hammerlock. Darby snapmares free and chinlocks but Starks slips out to the hammerlock again. Darby bridges back up, gets around, headlocks and clinches. Starks powers up but Darby whips. Starks reverses, Darby goes up the ropes and flies free! Darby dodges Starks, comes back to get around, spin Starks around and hammerlock back! Starks gets ropes, the ref counts and Darby lets off as fans rally. Starks SLAPS Darby so Darby SLAPS back! It’s a SLAP fight but Darby ROCKS Starks with that last one! Darby rains down rights, the ref backs him off, and Starks flounders about.

Starks tags Cage, Cody asks to tag in. Darby tags him in, and Cody stares Cage down. Cage headlocks, Cody powers out but Cage rams him. Cody stays up and double guns, but he still counter punches Cage. Cage spins and sobats, front kicks and whips, to hip toss Cody into a backbreaker! Fans boo but Cage drags Cody up to throw forearms. Cage whips, Cody slips off the scoop to shove. Cody drops, hurdles and dropkicks! Cage flounders, Cody is after him with forearms in the corner. Cody whips, Cage reverses and runs in but Cody dodges! Cage bounces off buckles, Cody goes up to MOONSAULT! Cover, ONE! Taz bails commentary to go back up his guys in the corner. Cody clubs Cage then tags Darby.

AEW goes picture in picture as Cody runs, springboards and BEAUTIFUL DISASTER! Cage staggers, Darby springboards to TRUST FALL! Cover, TWO! Darby keeps on Cage with a facelock and manages to drag him over. Tag to Cody and they mug Cage. Cody wrenches and whips Cage to ropes but Starks distracts the ref. Cage reverses and Taz takes a swipe at Cody! Cody glare at Taz but Cage clotheslines Cody out of the ring! Darby protests but the ref missed all of that. Coach Arn Anderson gets angry and throws a chair! So the ref EJECTS Arn!! Team Taz takes advantage again and Cage “puts on out” with a POWERBOMB to Cody on the floor!  Cage drags Cody back up, puts him in and covers, TWO!

Cage drags Cody up and wrenches him to a BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Cage wraps on with a chinlock but Cody fights his way up. Cody throws body shots and kicks Cage’s leg. Cage KNEES back! Cody ends up on ropes, Cage distracts the ref, and Starks gets a cheap shot in! Cage drags Cody to a corner and bumps him off buckles. Cage stalks Cody as he staggers away, and AEW returns to single picture. Cage wrenches and back suplexes, but Cody lands on his feet to kick low and hit the Rhodes Uppercut! But Starks runs in, only for Cody to throw him out! Cage runs at the corner but Cody boots him away! Cody leaps but into Cage’s arms! Cage does curls, FALL AWAY SLAMS, but Cody lands on his feet! Cage is too busy posing, Cody leaps to tag Darby, only for Starks to trip Darby up!

Cage uppercuts, enziguris and GERMAN SUPLEXES Cody from the corner! Cover, TWO! Fans rally for Cody but Cage drags him to the corner. Tag to Starks and Starks stomps Cody down! Starks drags Cody up, bumps him off buckles and fires off fast hands! The ref counts, Starks lets off but drags Cody back up. Starks snapmares and has a special cravat neck wrench on. Fans rally, Cody fights up, Starks facelocks but Cody back drops out! Cody and Starks are in opposite corners, Starks runs but Cody back drops him again! Hot tag to Darby! Darby dodges Starks and sends him into buckles, then he dropkicks Cage down! Darby corner body blocks Starks, and again, then wrings Starks out for a takedown! Jackknife, TWO!

Darby waistlocks, rams Starks into buckles, but Cage tags in as Starks bucks Darby away. Starks rushes Darby, Darby waistlocks but Starks switches. Darby switches again, Cage comes up to waistlock Darby, DOUBLE GERMAN SUPLEX, because Darby was holding onto Starks! Cody returns, dodges Cage and slides out to confront Taz! Cage and Starks slide out but Cody slides in, BEAUTIFUL DISASTER for Cage! Cody sees Starks return, goes up and over and rolls to come back, into Starks’ SPEAR! Darby shotgun dropkicks Starks! Cage POP-UP BOMBS Darby! Cage dead lifts Darby back up, but Darby turns that into a YOSHI TONIC! Cover, Starks barely breaks it in time!

Fans are fired up as all four men are down! Team Taz regroups and is up first, Starks has Darby up but Darby slips out. Darby flips around, no Throwback, but Cody gets Starks for CROSS RHODES! Cage spins, Cody ducks, the DISCUS clobbers Darby! Cage SUPERKICKS Cody, and wrenches to a TORTURE RACK BOMB! Cage drags Darby up, hoists him to the top rope backwards, then writes him off before he climbs up. Darby throws elbows but Cage CLUBS Darby down. Darby headbutts backwards! Cage staggers, the ref checks on him and Starks anchors Darby’s foot on the top rope! Cage leaps and KNEES Darby! Then he climbs up again, gets Darby up in a fireman’s carry, for a SUPER DRILL CLAW!! Cover, Team Taz wins!!

Winner: Team Taz, by pinfall

The FTW Champion just pinned the TNT Champion! Will the Path of Cage gain even more gold for the team? And Starks won’t let off on Darby, either! Cody gets in to go after Starks but he’s 2v1 against Team Taz now! Starks and Cage stomp away on Cody and Darby, but here comes WILL HOBBS! Hobbs is still allies with Darby, and he spots something he likes in the FTW Championship! Cody hobbles up, and Hobbs CLOBBERS him?! After everything that’s been going on, Hobbs is now officially on Team Taz?!? When did that happen!? Taz says they’re just getting started! Who will be left standing when they’re finished?


My Thoughts:

A great episode pretty much top to bottom, but I don’t know if the moment we just ended on needed to happen tonight, if at all. The tag match of Cody, Darby and Team Taz was really good, and Team Taz stands tall because they won and because they got to beat down Darby and Cody after. And I get that they don’t want to pull a WWE and drop a storyline just because they don’t know what to do with it. They obviously teased one option and then completely went the other way, but I wouldn’t have done the swerve. Hobbs joining Team Taz is great for Team Taz, but I felt like Hobbs VS Cage in another match for the FTW Championship would’ve been cool. Hobbs is now the third active wrestler in Team Taz, but then what? Someone goes after TNT Championship, the other two are for the tag titles now? I suppose Cage and Hobbs make a great combo because they’re both big and strong, but something just doesn’t click for me yet.

Young Bucks VS Top Flight was an incredible match, and it was great to have the little vignette beforehand. Obviously Bucks won, but Top Flight are now stars in the eyes of fans who didn’t know much about them. I do find it interesting that The Hybrid2 are already starting something with Bucks through this, I would’ve thought they’d have a blow-off tag match with SCU first, but maybe that’s what Dark is for. Cassidy VS Kip was really good, and Miro did well on commentary. Miro VS Cassidy is surely up next, and sounds like a lot of fun already. Great video from “Director X,” I clearly copy-pasted the video from AEW’s YouTube. They already posted it hours before the show, it saved me time to do that, and it’s just easier for everyone.

The Inner Circle Las Vegas segments tonight were amazing, but of course they would be. Obviously a lot of it was inspired by The Hangover movie franchise, and I would love for it to somehow continue so that we learn who Sammy’s mysterious third wife is, how manbaby Hornswoggle got there, and what happened to Jake Hager and Wardlow for part 2. We also got a pretty good segment backstage with Jade Cargill unofficially becoming a Vicious Vixen, and I bet we at least get a tag match for Jade’s in-ring debut now since A) Vickie doesn’t wrestle and B) Brandi just got kayfabe injured with that chair vice to her arm. Red Velvet and probably Big Swole, since those two were there, take on Nyla and Jade and at least make Jade look strong before Velvet eats a pin.

Pac VS Blade was pretty good, but the best thing there was that we have the return of DEATH TRIANGLE! Also I think AEW had to change things, I was pretty sure they already advertised Pac and Fenix against Butcher and Blade before the episode. AEW still has trouble keeping track of pacing on occasion, but as long as the actual execution is right, I’ll forgive marketing mistakes. This of course must end with a full Six Man, Kingston & The Fam VS Death Triangle. The NWA Women’s Championship was great, even with Britt getting involved. Britt and Rosa in a non-title crossover of AEW and NWA works, as each woman has become a frontrunner for each promotion’s Women’s Divisions. And Anna Jay getting her shot at Shida now that she’s changed herself works fine. Shida will surely win, though, even with Dark Order shenanigans.

I really liked how AEW did something unique with the contract signing, with Moxley being “attacked” backstage before ever getting out there. I would think Lance Archer did that but he’s not afraid to be caught beating someone up. Omega brushed it off like an excuse but maybe he has something to do with it after all. AEW is branding December 2nd hard, constantly repeating “Winter is Coming,” but the world title match of Moxley VS Omega on national television is pretty big so why not do whatever you can to communicate that? I bet there will be a lot of winter and/or Game of Thrones themed decorations, the same way Bash at the Beach was summer and, well, beach themed. Also congratulations to Moxley and Renee for having a baby on the way!

My Score: 9.1/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

FTW Championship: Hook VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil knows he’s up against a bad, bad man, but this is FTW Rules! Everyone who fights for this title is a bad, bad man, so will Hook prove he’s the baddest? Or will Shane #SendHook back to New York without his gold?

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?

 

AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over. Rocky hooks an arm but Roddy fights off the takedown to hip toss and cover. ONE, but Roddy facelocks. Rocky fights up, pries at the hold, but Roddy holds on tight. Rocky still fights his way out of the hold, wristlocks and wrenches again, then YANKS the arm.

Roddy ROCKS Rocky then CHOPS him! Roddy whips, Rocky slides under then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA! The fans fire up as Rocky then wrenches Roddy and goes up a corner. Rocky FLYING KNEE DROPS right on the arm! The fans cheer the Latino Heat and Rocky goes back to the corner. Rocky CHOPS Roddy, Roddy CHOPS back! Rocky CHOPS, Roddy kicks low! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, ROCKS him, then reels Rocky in for a BACKBREAKER! Rocky writhes but Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy and The Kingdom talk trash, Roddy swings but Rocky dodges! Rocky CHOPS and then stomps away on Roddy!

Rocky digs his boot in, lets off as the ref counts, then stands Roddy up. Rocky snapmares and runs to basement dropkick! Roddy flounders, Rocky covers, ONE!! Rocky keeps one eye on The Kingdom, then he brings Roddy around. UPPERCUT and Roddy staggers. Roddy BOOTS, whips, but Rocky goes Spiderman! Rocky then dodges Roddy and sends him tumbling out! Rocky goes out to PENALTY KICK from the apron! Rocky leaps to DIVING STOMP! Roddy writhes, Rocky gives more Latino Heat, and BOTB goes picture in picture.

Rocky tells The Kingdom to back off, and so does the ref. Taven mocks Rocky’s Latino Heat, but Rocky puts Roddy in the ring. Rocky storms up on Roddy to KICK his leg! Roddy hobbles to a corner, Rocky CHOPS him and then follows him. Rocky ROCKS Roddy, ROCKS him again, but Roddy bails out. Rocky goes after Roddy on the apron, but Roddy lifts! Rocky fights that to then elbow Roddy! But Rocky has to watch out for The Kingdom lurking! Roddy BOOTS Rocky, then POSTS him! Rocky falls to the floor, Roddy hops down and he drags Rocky up.

Rocky is still in this but Roddy stays on Rocky with stomps. Roddy stomps and stomps as BOTB returns to single picture. Roddy goes back to the motorcycle stretch but the fans rally again. Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS! Roddy wobbles, Rocky KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS!

Rocky CHOPS, whips, but Roddy reverses. Rocky reverses back to kick, but Roddy ducks the enzigiri! Rocky REWIND HEEL KICKS! Roddy flops out of the ring and the fans fire up!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (denies Rocky Romero a title opportunity)

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?

 

ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?


My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?

 

Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Lee and Shibata circle, Ogogo joins commentary to say the “skull cracking, jaw jacking Gov’nah is back in AEW.” Shibata and Lee clinch, go around, and Shibata waistlocks.

The fans boo while Ogogo rejoins commentary and the ring count begins. Lee mockingly applauds and Ogogo pretends not to know what happened. The count is 8! 9! Shibata springs in at 9.9! But Lee CLOBBERS Shibata, covers, TWO!!

Lee flops in a corner, Shibata fires more forearms on him! Shibata UPPERCUTS, then JABS, then COHPS! JAB CHOP JAB CHOP!

Lee sits down, Shibata COHPS and CHOPS and runs, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! The fans fire up for Shibata’s signature and STP looks upset! Shibata snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Lee stays in this and both men catch their breaths, but Shibata gets Lee up. Lee switches around to COBRA TWIST! The fans rally as Shibata endures, and Shibata pries at the grip.

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

Angelico and Garcia reset, knuckle lock, then Angelico trips Garcia. Angelico rolls Garcia, whips, but Garcia reverses.

The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?

 

Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up.

AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

AZM ducks ‘n’ dodges, trips Storm then keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Basement dropkick! The fans fire up as AZM kips up again! AZM pushes Storm around, steps on her, and the ref counts. AZM steps away at 4, the fans rally up, and AZM runs to DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, ONE!! Storm toughs it out and the fans rally as AZM goes to the apron. AZM climbs, Storm DECKS her! Storm then runs to HIP ATTACK AZM to the floor! AZM tumbles away to the ramp, but Anna gets Mariah in a QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! Mariah RAMS Anna into railing! Mariah and Anna fight now, the fans fire up, and AZM gets outta the way!

Storm is flabbergasted as Anna and Mariah brawl their way to the back! Storm fetches AZM but AZM whips her into steel steps! Then AZM pushes Storm around, goes up the apron, and fans fire up for the PENALTY KICK! Storm is dazed but the fans fire up as Collision goes picture in picture.

AZM shoves Storm in, goes up top, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Storm flounders all the way across the ring! AZM storms over to drag Storm up, but Storm HOTSHOTS her! AZM flounders, Storm stomps her, and then Storm CHOPS AZM down! Storm pushes AZM around, flexes, then brings AZM up. Storm whips AZM, BOOTS AZM down, then flexes again.

AZM endures, so Storm shifts to a chinlock, but AZM still fights! ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Storm lets go at 4, and she paces around AZM. Storm stomps AZM, drags her up, and Collision returns to single picture as Storm stomps AZM in a corner. Storm pie faces AZM, taunts her, but AZM rises. The fans fire up as AZM fires forearms! Storm ROCKS AZM in return! AZM fires another forearm, Storm ROCKS her again! AZM fires more forearms, then blocks a kick to ROUNDHOUSE!

AZM runs, but Storm HEADBUTTS! But AZM returns to LA MYSTICA! Then BUZZSAW! Both women are down and the fans fire up! AZM sits up first, brings Storm up, and then runs, but Storm CHOKES her!

AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands? Or can Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood find a way to come out on top?

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine. Bryan might as well just expect not to walk out on his own. One last message has been sent, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will the Protostar & Powerhouse pulverize the BCC?

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
