Hangman Page VS John Silver w/ The Dark Order!

The fans are fired up for some #CowboyStuff as Hangman gets back in the ring! But can he get back on the horse, as they say, against Number 4? Or, given what we’ve seen on Being The Elite, will he give in and #JoinDarkOrder instead?

The bell rings and Silver wants a fist bump. The fans are conflicted but Hangman refuses the bump. Hangman and Silver circle, tie up, and Hangman wrenches to a wristlock. Silver spins through, headlocks and holds tight. Hangman powers out, they ram shoulders but Hangman rebounds to run Silver over. Things speed up, Hangman catches Silver to SLAM him! Silver boots back from the mat then keeps moving, to tilt-o-whirl and arm-drag! Hangman gets up and Silver dropkicks him down! Silver double guns and fans boo, but Silver cools things off. Silver tells Hangman they can hang, because Hangman’s jacked, too. Hangman ROLLING ELBOWS Silver down!

Hangman drags Silver up to CHOP him! Silver goes to a corner, Hangman CHOPS him again, then tries again. Silver dodges to CHOP and forearm and CHOP back. Hangman puts Silver back in the corner to CHOP once more! Fans fire up as Hangman drags Silver back up. Hangman whips and back drops Silver high and hard! Hangman tries to get a measurement on how high Silver went before he whips Silver corner to corner. Silver goes up and over, Hangman switches with him and Silver CLUBS Hangman on the back! Hangman chuckles and Silver says it isn’t personal, that was just some fun. Hangman whips Silver to the ring and triangle jumps, into an enziguri!

Silver goes up top, leaps, crossbody! Cover, TWO! Hangman gets to ropes and Silver throws big forearms. Silver keeps on Hangman in a corner, CHOPS him, but Hangman CHOPS back! Silver mule kicks, ROUND KICKS Hangman in the chest, then KICKS again! Hangman grits his teeth as fans rally up. Silver brings Hangman up but Hangman CHOPS him again! Hangman whips Silver to ropes, Silver reverses and runs him over with an elbow! Cover, TWO! Silver keeps his cool and he forearms. Hangman forearms back and the two go back and forth. Hangman gets the edge, but Silver gets around to SNAP GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!

Fans boo Silver but he grits his teeth as he runs at Hangman in the corner. Hangman pops Silver out to the apron, TRIANGLE LARIAT! Silver tumbles down, Hangman slingshots but Silver gets in. Silver DIVES but Hangman dodges! Hangman PLANCHAS and hits this time! Hangman puts Silver in, runs in at the corner to clothesline! Hangman rolls Silver and SLIDING LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Silver survives and Hangman grows frustrated. Hangman’s peers are ringside are divided but everyone rallies up as Hangman brings Silver up.

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

Johnny Hungy and Hangman was serving up soup bones! The Dark Order returns but not to fight. Evil Uno wants Hangman to understand this isn’t what that is. Uno has regrets about how they’ve treated him. But surely Hangman has regrets of his own. Hangman was a member of one of the most popular groups ever. But Hangman is also an individual who, no matter how many times he tried to leave, that group would not let him go. If that’s not a cult, Uno doesn’t know what is. Hangman has a lot on his plate, and not many people to rely on. But the Dark Order is here for him. Hangman knows where they are and where to find them. Will Hangman actually #JoinDarkOrder after all?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

Winter is Coming, but it’ll heat up as the second-ever Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royal will be held! MJF still holds his ring as the inaugural winner, and he’s in that match again alongside, Wardlow, Miro, Kip Sabian, Orange Cassidy, Shawn Spears, Scorpio Sky, Matt Sydal, Matt Hardy, Private Party, Sammy Guevara, Alex Reynolds, and even John Silver and Hangman Page! Will Maxwell Jacob Friedman add a ring to the collection? Or will someone else be joining him in the DDR club?

 

AEW hears from Kenny Omega.

Last week, the contract signing didn’t quite go the way it was supposed to. Jon Moxley was viciously attacked and never made it to the ring. Hopefully the contract signing finishes tonight. Omega says that after such an uneventful week, he has had time to reflect. It may sound cliché, Omega has come to the conclusion that “the more things change, the more they stay the same.” If Omega looks back to a year ago, almost to the day, Omega was nursing injuries from facing Moxley. Omega will admit that, though it isn’t on the record, he did lose. Omega can do that, because he has changed.

Omega looks to the present and things are about to be the same. Instead of Omega’s face, he sees Moxley on every magazine cover, and having everyone call Moxley the best. That’s the change. But then after the title contender tournament, suddenly Omega’s name is brought back up. “The Return of the Cleaner, the Return of the Best Bout Machine, the Return of the TRUE Best in the World.” That is the same. The common thread that binds him and Moxley is the AEW World Championship. For a year, Omega has struggled, clawed and fought to be taken seriously again. And now when Omega gets his belt, then the people will consider him the best.

So this isn’t a stipulation, but a gentleman’s challenge: for one night, Moxley, “damn it please, leave the garbage wrestling at home.” No tables, no chairs, no garbage cans, no thumbtacks. Be the best by beating Omega in the ring. Pin, submission, or even choke Omega out. But do it with your ability. Omega will be waiting for his response in the ring. Good-bye, goodnight, all that jazz, sign the contract. Oh, and Omega adds this: yes, Moxley is the good guy, and congratulations on the baby. But listen to that childhood story of yours. It pulled at Omega’s heartstrings. But the thing is, Moxley’s dad didn’t seem that tough at all. Omega’s dad would probably beat the sh*t out of Moxley’s.

Harsh words and a lot of fire from Omega, but will he be the one put on ice when he and Moxley battle next week at Winter is Coming?

 

MORE news for Winter is Coming!

Things are not done between Cody Rhodes, Darby Allin and Team Taz! But things change a bit, as now “POWERHOUSE” WILL HOBBS will team with Ricky Starks against the American Nightmare and the #Relentless TNT Champion! But will Powerhouse have even more momentum going into that match with his match tonight? We find out, after the break!

 

Darby Allin has another video.

He smashes up another car, and sprays it with paint. “And now the fun part, Team Taz. Survive, if I let you.” Darby is taking Taz’s words and using them against him! And then Darby sets the car on fire! Will Darby burn down Absolute and the Powerhouse alongside the American Nightmare?

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs VS Lee Johnson!

A change of allegiance, a change of attitude, and now a change of name! Will Team Taz’s new Powerhouse absolutely crush Big Shotty?

The bell rings, Johnson dodges Hobbs and then goes up and over! Johnson keeps moving but Hobbs CLOBBERS him with that body block! Hobbs looms over Johnson while fans fire up and jeer! “You Sold Out!” but Hobbs ignores that to toss Johnson out! Hobbs then goes out and goes around the way to CLOBBER Johnson again! The Gunn Club are especially upset, they’re Nightmare Family but also Hobbs’ friends. Hobbs says “It’s just business.” Hobbs picks Johnson up to THROW him into railing! The ring count is at 6 but Hobbs drags Johnson up and in at 7. Hobbs stalks Johnson, lets him flounder up and tells him it’s not personal. Hobbs scoops Johnson for the POWERHOUSE SLAM! Cover, Hobbs wins!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

Big, strong, fast, and now mean as all hell. Taz joins Hobbs in the ring and says, “Here’s the deal, my man.” There is business to be taken care of. As you can see, Taz again has the FTW Championship that Brian Cage was only just holding. Cage and Starks have been celebrating big that Hobbs is now on their team. Go celebrate with them. Hobbs heads out and Taz says there is a problem. The FTW Championship and this company, AEW, are not cooperating. Taz is sick and tired of the disrespect, and the FTW Lifestyle not being acknowledged. He’s not dealing with it anymore. Taz wants management to get their asses get out here and make the title mean something!

There is a legacy here! There is a reason men, real tough bastards, hold this belt! So management, get out here! But then he’s MUTED! Taz sees how it is. He tells Justin Roberts to get up and give him his mic. Justin isn’t so sure if he should but Taz shouts at him. Justin gives the mic over and Taz talks again. Keith Mitchell, Tony Khan, you mute him again, he’ll take his ass to the desk and then grab a headset that they won’t be able to cut off. This isn’t his first rodeo, boys! But then the mic is muted again! Taz is pissed, but he’s going to follow through with his warning.

Security wants to escort Taz away, and here comes Cody from gorilla! Cody asks if Taz is done. Give Taz applause, because he is done. Cody is here out of respect. Taz is wasting air time, and next week is the match to settle it. Starks and Hobbs, Cody and Darby, isn’t that good enough? Taz tells Cody that he’s here for a reason. What’s happening next week will be the same as last week: Cody and Darby getting whooped. But that’s not why Taz is here now. Taz wants management to take the FTW Championship and put some respect on its name! He is tired of this sh*t!

Okay, Taz, okay. Someone from management is here, and Cody is hearing it, digesting it, looking at the title. How about he runs it up the pole? Oh, and what else is he going to say? Does “creative” have nothing for him? More corporate BS? Best of luck on future endeavors? Is that what Cody will do next? Oh okay then. Taz feels the FTW Championship means everything right? It’s so important, right? It’s so wonderful, right? Then answer Cody this! Taz’s son, Hook, is training to be a wrestler, right? Why the hell is he NOT training with Taz, but training with Cody?

Taz puts his mic down, and Cody says they’re done. Taz can’t believe Cody went there. That’s pathetic and stupid. Taz does turn to go, but then he sneaks up on Cody! TAZMISSION!! TAZMISSION!! Gunn Club gets in and Taz gets out! But the damage to Cody was done! And then Taz’s son, Hook, is there to hep his dad carry the FTW title away. Has this just escalated past Team Taz VS Cody and Darby to the Taz Family VS Nightmare Family?

 

Backstage interview with Eddie Kingston.

Death Triangle has reformed, and tonight, Fenix teams with PAC to take on The Butcher & The Blade. They’ve left The Fam, so how does the Fam feel about that? Well he isn’t angry with his former best friend, but he’s just really really really disappointed. Fenix is a showboat, likes to jump around and do flippy stuff, it was expected. As for Pack, Pac, Bing, Bong, Poop, whatever, “you’ve been gone for eight months, brother, things’ve changed!” The King is here! Pac won a battle, not the war.

But then Jon Moxley comes by and Kingston stares him down. Kingston says it wasn’t him who attacked Moxley. Kingston has his own stuff to handle. But Moxley does know who did it, and has that to handle, “champ.” Moxley leaves without a word, but who does Kingston mean?

AEW hears from the Vicious Vixens, Vickie Guerrero and Nyla Rose.

Vickie says today, “we’re going to have a lesson about nepotism. What does that mean? It is the practice among those with power who influence their friends in giving them a job.” Sounds a lot like Brandi Rhodes. What if Big Swole, Serena Deeb and Red Velvet were influenced by Mrs. Rhodes? On the other hand, Jade Cargill did not need to be influenced by the Vicious Vixens at all in going after Brandi. Nor does Nyla Rose need to be influenced to destroy her opponents in the ring. It seems Brandi’s business plan is set up for failure. So if she needs any advice, just call Vickie. Will things only get more vicious in the AEW Women’s Division as things go on?

 

AEW hears from FTR.

“Full Gear was supposed to be the dream match, and I don’t care how many of our peers message us, I don’t care how many legends say, how many journalists write that it’s one of the greatest tag team matches in history,” Cash Wheeler says that was one of the worst nights in his life. Dax Harwood says “there comes a time in a man’s life when he’s gotta dig deep in his soul. He’s gotta do some soul searching and be real honest with himself.” It pains him to say this, but Dax says that for three seconds, the Bucks were the absolute best. For three seconds, they were better than FTR. But beating Jessie James doesn’t mean you’re as bad as Jessie James, and FTR are the baddest, the incumbent, the incomparable! They need those titles, that is their life!

Tully wants FTR to understand that it is their destiny to be the best, and it is Tully’s destiny to be their coach, and for them to be a team! These two gentlemen are the next world tag team champions, and the Bucks need to #FearTheRevelation.

 

Chris Jericho & Jake Hager w/ The Inner Circle VS SoCal Uncensored!

The Demo God and Big Hurt are back in action as a team, and are aiming high as they take on the very accomplished duo in Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian.

Hager drags Daniels around to throw him out! The ref is distracted by Kaz, Jericho and Hager, and the rest of the IC OG start stomping away!

AEW hears from Miro, Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford.

“Ladies and gentlemen, today is a big day!” Because today is the debut of the Miro & Kip Video Game Extravaganza! Let’s start with the- Orange Cassidy sneaks in and turns off their new XBOX! Miro is pissed and gives chase, but it’s a trap! Best Friends jump Miro and Kip! They brawl around the lot, Trent is thrown into the side of the trailer but he dodges as Miro runs in!

We can’t see the brawling continue, but surely this won’t be the end of it! Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royale aside next week, will it be #GameOver for Freshly Squeezed and Best Friends soon enough?

 

Tony Schiavone once again presides over the AEW World Championship contract signing.

Last week, this didn’t work out because Moxley was attacked. But with only one week away, this has to happen! We’ll see the two best wrestlers in the world face off for the title belt! First, the challenger…! “He is a Wrestling Observer Hall of Famer, who was voted by esteemed members of the wrestling industry. These esteemed members of the wrestling industry decided that he is a Wrestling Observer Hall of Famer. Unlike the Wrestling Observer Hall of Fame, the NASCAR Hall of Fame is based in North Carolina~! He is, KENNYYYY~! OOOOMEGAAA!” The Sweepettes are back again as Omega makes his entrance from the tunnel, but wait who is that behind him!? MOXLEY ATTACKS!! Moxley attacks Omega and throws him throw his special curtain!

Moxley dumps Omega into the ring, throws punches then tosses him over the desk! Moxley grabs his belt and sets it in front of Omega. Omega grabs for it and Moxley stands on his hand! Moxley then drags Omega up, to give him a PARADIGM SHIFT onto the title!! Fans are going nuts as Moxley has Schiavone give him the mic. “Gentlemen’s agreement? Riiight…” Moxley isn’t sure who Omega got to take him out last week, but they did a piss poor job because Moxley’s still walking. Next time you wanna put a hit out on someone, just give Mox a call, he knows some guys out of Philly.

“And I thought our beef was squashed one year ago, and then you had to go and piss me off!” But don’t worry. Consider them even. There’s only one way to become champion, Moxley’s made sure of that. He has protected this championship. The only way you become champion is by digging down deep into your guts and find the Kenny Omega everyone thinks he is. Omega has to climb a mountain no one has been able to these last 18 months. You gotta beat MOX on December 2nd, right here on TNT, the biggest match in Dynamite history! The two best on the planet tangle for this title, “GOD I LOVE THIS S*IT!” Win, lose, or draw, Winter is Coming for Kenny.

This is not a game, jokes on BTE or dancing girls with brooms. When you come at the king, you best not miss, because Moxley doesn’t take prisoners. “Steady your hand, aim, and take your shot, Kenny. Because you’re only gonna get one.” And with that, Moxley signs his part of the contract! And thanks, Schiavone! Now it’s official! But who takes home the gold and who gets left out in the cold?

 

Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.

Before Marvez can say anything, MJF grabs the mic from him. “What kind of man sucker punches another man in the face?! I’ll tell you who! Frankie ‘The Coward’ Kazarian!” Hypocrisy aside there, Jericho continues. “Marvez, after a fair and square victory by the Inner Circle, Hager ‘Big Jake’ and myself, beating Christopher Daniels, beating Frankie Kazarian, Kazarian dares to put his hands on this man.” MJF can barely move his jaw and there will be dental issues, despite him just talking. That is not how the IC does things. Jericho said that the fun and games for the Inner Circle are done. They’ll go back to what they do best: beating the hell out of the AEW roster!

And guess what, Kaz? Jericho makes you famous! For the first time ever, Jericho VS Kaz 1v1 on Dynamite! Jericho will have his revenge on behalf of MJF! Kaz has had a great career, but next week, it’s over. But will things be just as “fair and square” as they were tonight?

 

AEW takes a closer look at the Women’s World Championship match.

Hikaru Shida and Anna Jay faced off once before, far earlier in the year, and Anna was little more than a rookie at the time. Anna says Shida took advantage of that. At Full Gear, Nyla Rose went after Shida’s knee at every turn. Shida says the knee is fine now, but that is what it is to be champion. Shida tells Anna that “Losing is learning.” If Anna needs the Dark Order and her friend, Tay Conti, to help her avoid losing, then what is she learning? But Tay is teaching Jay much, as both a blackbelt in judo and blue belt in jiujitsu. People might underestimate this friendship, but they don’t see that Jay and Tay make each other better. That is why Jay will be the champion!

But Shida wants to know Jay’s true strength, and see her true colors. Jay says that the last piece to her transformation is the title. The only thing in her way of that title is Shida. Shida says it isn’t the belt Jay needs. “It’s more heart. Bring it.”

AEW Women’s World Championship: Hikaru Shida VS Anna Jay w/ Tay Conti!

The Full Metal Warrior was able to slay the Native Beast again at Full Gear, but now she’s against a Queenslayer! We heard from both, but will Shida be proven right as Tay accompanies Jay to ringside?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and Number 99 looks to end Shida’s 20 singles-match win streak! But at the same time, Numbers 4, 5 and 10 are on stage. Will they be a factor in this rematch of now very different women?

Shida and Jay circle, tie up, and Shida shoves Jay away. Fans rally as they tie up again but then break again. Shida shoves Jay so Jay shoves back. Shida shoves, Jay shoves, and fans fire up! They tie up, Shida headlocks, Jay powers out but Shida runs her over with a shoulder. Things speed up, Shida rolls but Jay gets around to the sleeper!

AEW returns and Shida is up top. She drags Jay up but Jay fights back with body shots. Jay spins and HEEL KICKS Shida off the top! Jay gets in and BLOCKBUSTERS Shida down! Fans boo and Jay tells Tay to get “it!” A chair! Jay demands to have the chair but Tay says she doesn’t need it. The ref says she can’t use it, either, that’s a disqualification! Jay gives the chair to the ref, and Silver gets her Shida’s kendo stick! Jay aims and SMACKS the bad leg!! Tay protests, Jay covers, the ref doesn’t see it right away! TWO!! Shida survives but Jay puts on the QUEENSLAYER CLUTCH! Shida reaches out, rolls around, and sits up to roll back! BLINDSIDE ELBOW!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall (still AEW Women’s World Champion)

The screwjobs and shenanigans didn’t stop Shida! She still has the title, and Anna Jay still can’t do it alone! Will Shida add onto her 21 match streak in 2020 to- Oh no. ABADON is here?! Another opponent Shida faced earlier in the year is back to haunt her, and this time it’s literal! Abadon snatches the title belt from Shida and licks it!! Abadon clearly wants the title, but will it take more than being a living horror movie to stop Shida?

 

AEW hears from Matt Hardy.

He introduces himself as the “iconic” Matt Hardy. “The most creative and innovative trailblazer in pro-wrestling history.” 2020 has been a difficult year for us all. Considering Hardy’s super stardom, he felt the need to inspire us to fight on. If Hardy can survive 2020, so can we. And when he secured a win at the ELITE DELETION, all was right in the world! So if Hardy can overcome insurmountable odds, than obviously we can conquer our pedestrian challenges. Just remember: if you’re feeling overwhelmed and ready to quit, just think “What Would Matt Hardy Do?” And the answer is survive, thrive and win! Hardy is doing his best to motivate the world, but will he be able to survive, thrive and win in the Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royale?

 

Team Taz speaks.

Absolute Ricky Starks is absolutely livid as he shouts, “You have crossed a line tonight, Cody!” Taz left with his son, all because of Cody! Starks wants to be frank with everyone tonight: “We love it here at AEW. Tony, he takes care of us. He pays us good, he puts us in the main event matches, he puts us in big matches.” The only thing Starks has a problem with is Cody Rhodes! Cage agrees, and Starks continues to say that the only problem they have with Cody is that his “paper thin ego” gets in the way.

Tonight, Cody begged Khan to cut Taz’s mic, because Cody didn’t want Taz reminding the fans that Starks and Cage defeated Cody and Darby, the TNT Champion. And then Cody went all, “Hey, I’m training your kid!” You made this personal! So Starks and Hobbs are coming to bust heads! FTW, the most dominant force in wrestling! Who betta?

 

Death Triangle VS The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny!

It was very clear that things were growingly dysfunctional within Eddie Kingston’s “family,” and it all fell apart when it came to that World Title Eliminator Tournament. But now PAC is BACK, and he is once again with the Lucha Brothers! Fenix will be alongside the Bastard, will they break the Butcher and Blade down before Kingston’s eyes?

Fans fire up as Archer grabs Kingston, but the Fam attacks back Fenix and Penta attack Butcher and Blade, Archer throws hands on Kingston! Archer whips Kingston but Kingston bails out! The Fam regroups and retreats while the Lucha Brothers check on Pac. Will The Bastard have to miss more time after just returning? Will Kingston have to come to terms with the fact #EverybodyDies?


My Thoughts:

A great episode as the go-home to “Winter is Coming.” I was hoping for a bit more Game of Thrones references and jokes set up for next week, but maybe they’re saving all of those for next week. Hangman VS Silver was obviously going to be a win for Hangman, but I like that the story is there for Hangman possibly leaving The Elite for good, and then he joins Dark Order. I don’t know if he will, but it would definitely be something big for him and for Dark Order. But I wonder if AEW has put the Cabana story aside, since he’s basically in the position they’re trying to put Hangman in.

I find it interesting that Will Hobbs now has a name very much like “Hangman” Adam Page. “Powerhouse” Hobbs of course gets a win, but the character work during was very good. Fans and peers say he sold out but he says this is just business. He gets right in on the feud Team Taz has with Cody and Darby, but Taz coming out to argue about the FTW Championship and then things “getting personal” with Cody was a great way to escalate. Taz putting Cody in a Tazmission was itself a great detail, I wonder if this gives us an 8 Man Tag of the complete Team Taz against Darby, Cody and the Natural Nightmares, Dustin Rhodes and QT Marshall. Perhaps at a certain point we also get a 6 Man Tag of Gunn Clubb VS Hobbs, Cage and Starks. And I think in the end, win or lose, the FTW Championship becomes officially recognized by AEW to give this stacked company a second midcard title.

TH2 VS Top Flight was a great match, but naturally TH2 wins, because they’re clearly next to feud with the Bucks. We got a really good promo from FTR and Tully, but it was mostly to bide time while AEW works up a feud for them on the way back to the top. There was a lot of energy during the Inner Circle VS SCU, I think it was brilliant for MJF to be the one with the last piece of the screwjob. Jericho VS Kaz next week will be a great match, but I want to see a Six Man of SCU VS Jericho, MJF and perhaps Sammy Guevara. I can already see there being an argument of who the third man should be, mostly revolving around Hager and Wardlow as muscle, but with Sammy’s AEW Dark promo and how he’s still not 100% trusting of MJF, that trio might make for the best combination.

Next week having the second-ever Dynamite Diamond Ring Battle Royale is also interesting news. I don’t think AEW would take MJF’s ring away, so they must be making a second ring so that potentially, there will be someone else with a ring. They can surely tease that MJF will win again to have two rings on one hand, or one for each hand, but someone else should definitely get that ring. I find it interesting that Hardy, after winning ELITE DELETION, started to shift gears in his promo to be the humble brag kind of Heel. Maybe he’ll win the battle royal to use the ring as a point of emphasis on what he was saying.

The story of the second contract signing was really good. Kingston clearly felt Omega attacked Moxley in some way and that made Moxley think the same. Omega’s promo talking trash on Moxley was really good, Moxley attacking during Omega’s entrance was great, and Moxley’s promo on Omega after was also really good. That match is going to be incredible, and I have no idea who wins, which makes it all the better. Death Triangle VS The Fam was a lot of good stuff, that attack from Kingston was brutal, and how surprising for Lance Archer to make his move now, as if he were a Face. If Pac is kayfabe sidelined, I could see Archer subbing in to team with Lucha Brothers to take on The Fam in a Six Man Tag, then things split off so Archer VS Kingston goes down as an unofficial contender’s match or something, to at least the TNT Championship.

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?

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!

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! Brody is down and the fans fire up! Brody crawls, the fans hoot and bark, hot tag to Malakai! Malakai breaks through Colten’s lariat to BOOT Austin! Malakai dodges Colten, DECKS Austin, then ELBOWS Colten! A strike fest and a LEG SEWEP for Austin! SLIDING KNEE! The fans fire up, but Juice takes the QUEBRADA for Colten! Malakai still ROUNDHOUSES Colten and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO!!

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

Speaking of, Alex doesn’t even wait for the bell, she goes after Toni the moment she’s in a corner! The fans boo but the bell rings and the ref reprimands.

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?

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.

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?

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
