Backstage interview with MJF and Wardlow.

Alexander brings up Chris Jericho calling MJF “soft,” but MJF won’t let that word be said in his presence. No one gets to say that, because MJF is NOT soft. MJF is razor sharp, tough as nails, and no one is tougher than him! Everyone seems to get it twisted seeing the suits, the scarf and the jewelry. But don’t get it wrong, folks, because no one is better than him bell to bell. Jericho VS MJF is very important. Demo God VS Ratings Ruler, two of the biggest names in all of pro-wrestling going toe to toe! This is the most important match in MJF’s life. That seems a lot to say because MJF faced “Jonathan Moxley” for the AEW World Championship. But MJF says you’re stupid thinking that was big, because “Jonathan Moxley” cheated.

When MJF beats Jericho, and he will beat Jericho, MJF gets to have the Inner Circle at his helm. He will be part of the greatest faction in all of wrestling, and get all the gold he wants. How does Wardlow feel about joining The Inner Circle? MJF says that’s a great question and answers it for Wardlow. Wardlow will be a great fit in the Inner Circle, so long as Jake Hager stops making faces at him. Then let’s talk about the Inner Circle members resisting him turning. Oh of course you’d bring that up, stooge. MJF knows people don’t like MJF. But do you know what that doesn’t matter? Because he’s better than you, and he knows it. But will he do what he promises and win his way in to the Inner Circle?

Backstage interview with Eddie Kingston and “The Fam.”

This is the most important night in Kingston’s career, but Alexander would like to ask “The Fam” how they feel about this. Sure, why not. Specifically to Butcher, Blade and Bunny, do they think he has what it takes to make Moxley say “I Quit?” Does HE not think Kingston has what it takes? Allie of course knows Kingston will do it and won’t say quit. So stupid. Okay, sorry. Moving on to the Lucha Brothers, do THEY think Kingston has what it takes? Of course! Kingston is: number one, Penta’s best friend; number two, the best in the world; and Fenix has the third, Kingston is capable of anything.

So then to Kingston himself. We saw a very intense confrontation on Dynamite. Is it about the AEW World Championship? Or about making Moxley say those two words? Nothing is more important than the world title. Nothing. Not revenge, not making someone say they quit or beating them half to death. The only title that means anything in the only company that matters, is what matters tonight. Then if he becomes champion tonight, Archer is ready to go after him. is that a concern? Kingston doesn’t care about that. Tonight is just about the championship. Moxley has it, so Archer doesn’t matter. PAC doesn’t matter. Kingston does not care about anything else. Will this dangerous determination and focus be exactly what helps Kingston defeat Moxley?

 

2020 has been a year of hardships.

But it has also been a year that has made us all stronger. Full Gear will be the culmination and celebration of AEW’s fighting spirt. Tonight, there are no limits for these men and women! It just comes down to who wants it more! Do not underestimate the fortitude of a quiet man, as Darby Allin goes for gold. The games are over as MJF takes on Chris Jericho. The Young Bucks put it all on the line when it comes to the AEW World Tag Team Championships. The Native Beast hungers for gold. Former friends and tag partners fight for the same destiny. And speaking of former friends, THE title stands between them. Welcome to the show!

 

AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament Finals: Kenny Omega VS Hangman Page!

History waits for no one so why wait for this historic showdown? Speaking of which, there is so much history here between The Cleaner and The Cowboy! First they were allies in The Elite, then they were thrown together as tag team partners that then took the gold, but now they’re on choppy waters. Will that friendship still be in one piece after going head to head for a shot at the championship?

Omega’s elaborate entrance changes again. “He prepared for Joey Janela but he beat Sonny Kiss. He trained for Rey Fenix but overcame Penta El Zero M.” Now he is here in the finals of this tournament! He won the IWGP United States Championship tournament. He has held 16 individual singles titles, including his current 13 month reign as AAA Mega Champion. He has headlined more PPV’s, scored more AEW singles wins, and has 8 more years experience than his opponent, Hangman Page. For that matter, Omega is 1-0 against Hangman from before AEW. He is… KENNY! OOOOOOMEEEEGA~! And the Sweepettes are back again! They’re in retro 80’s jazzercise while Omega emerges from the tunnel in his classic Kirito the Black jacket!

Omega slides and wrecks Hangman with the dropkick!

The Terminator drums are back again as Omega runs, and FLIES! Direct hit with the tope conjilo! Both men are down at the railing but Omega drags himself up. Those legs must really be bothering him.

Orange Cassidy VS John Silver!

If not for the interference of The Dark Order’s Number 4, this card might have been very different. Instead of Freshly Squeezed defending the TNT Championship against Darby Allin, he’ll have to settle for settling the score with Silver. Will Cassidy come out on top against this hyperactive muscular hamster?

The bell rings and the ref helps Cassidy with removing the glasses. Silver and Cassidy circle as fans rally up already. Silver steps to Cassidy and talks some trash. “I’m FREAKIN’ JACKED, baby!” What’s Orange got? Don’t put your hands in your pockets! NO NO NO! Too late. Silver is frustrated already and fans rally up. Silver powers up but Cassidy dodges the fist to snapmare Silver down, and then sits to thumbs up with him. Then ghost pin! TWO, but Cassidy asks Silver to wait. Cassidy puts his hands back in his pockets. And unleashes the shin kicks! Silver says those don’t hurt! It’s so dumb! But Cassidy dodges to dropkick Silver down then kip right up! Silver scoops Cassidy and slams him down! Silver takes the hands out of Cassidy’s pockets, then RIPS the pockets out!!

Silver stalks Cassidy but fans troll him with “You Suck!” Silver stomps Cassidy while fans duel. Silver’s fans are mostly just the Heel wrestlers ringside, though.

TWO, backslide but Silver slips out to KICK, KICK and KICK! Suplex, but STUN-DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy runs, but into a BOOT! Silver torture racks, for SPIN DOCTOR SLAM! Cover, TWO!?! Silver can’t believe Cassidy survived! Cassidy goes to a corner, Silver powers up and gives a shout out to Brodie Lee! Discus MISSES, ORANGE PUNCH! BEACH BREAK! Cover, Cassidy wins!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

The Sloth is victorious! Will the Dark Order leave him alone after this? Or will they only go after him with more fervor?

But Cody has the music quiet down, and he looks to Darby. Darby manages to get to his feet, and Cody personally hands the belt over. Darby is certainly emotional but fans tell him, “You Deserve It!” Darby takes the belt, and the moment of triumph is complete! Are we witnessing the start of Darby’s-

Wait, here comes Taz… “I swear to God, I need a plastic bag, because I’m going to vomit. Enough with the emotions, the hugging, the tears, all of this crap! MAN UP! So what? You won the TNT Championship! I would say act like you been there before, but you’ve never been there before!” So Darby and “the prince of pro-wrestling” can go take their “b*tch asses” to the back. Yeah, you heard him, EVP. But here comes TEAM Taz! They barrel past Arn, get in the ring, Cage CLOBBERS Darby then he and Starks mug Cody! Cage CLOBBERS Darby again, then he feeds Cody to Starks’ SPEAR! But they both want the TNT title belt. Taz gest them to calm down. He holds the belt for them both and has them finish the job on Darby.

Cage hauls Darby up and around the back, and then drops him down near the Full Gear panel. That’s the same kind of panel as last year’s unsanctioned match with Moxley and Omega! And we all know what happens getting thrown in there! Cody hurries and fights Cage and Starks but that’s 2v1! Cage whips Cody into railing, then hauls Darby up to throw him INTO the Full Gear paneling! Fans boo but Cage isn’t done, he drags Darby right out of the wreckage. They go to Darby’s car!

The Embodiment of Willpower chases Team Taz off! Hobbs is making it clear now more than ever that he is NOT joining Team Taz! Darby has been spared, but will he be able to last long with The Machine AND Absolute after him?

 

Backstage interview with The Natural Nightmares.

They were attacked the last time they were talking backstage, but QT Marshall doesn’t want to talk Butcher and Blade, he wants to call out Allie. She used QT to infiltrate the Nightmare Family not because she was bored, but because she knows the Nightmare Family is THE most prolific family in wrestling today! And Blade is playing victim that his wife was with QT? Oh please. If it wasn’t QT, it’d be someone else, because Blade doesn’t have his house in order.

Dustin wants to set this straight. There have been many successful women who have come through this sport. Allie is NOT one of them! This coming Dynamite, Dustin asked Tony Khan and he approved, their match with The Butcher & Blade is now a BUNK HOUSE MATCH! And if you don’t know what that is, you are about to learn! This Wednesday, Butcher will be gasping for air trying to keep up as Dustin kicks his ass, because he won’t even last 10 minutes! Understand that, punks! This is war! Who is going down in AEW’s first ever Bunk House Match?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship: Hikaru Shida VS Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero!

Double Or Nothing 2020 was an epic showdown, and the Full Metal Warrior was the one to finally dethrone the Native Beast!

AEW hears from Lance Archer and Jake the Snake.

Or rather, Jake talks while Archer mauls someone against a brick wall! Jake says he and Archer have nothing to do. Archer is tired of training. They had four guys to train with but now they have no one. Jake is serious. He has to feed this SOB, but not with food. Archer wants people! They’re in a bad spot, but someone has to step up to serve them something. Archer says, “Weep and moan, you evil shepherds. Roll in the dust, you leaders of this Elite flock. Your time of slaughter is coming. You will fall. You will shatter beneath my boot” because their egos are fragile. Archer will break everyone in AEW! You can be Elite, you can have a family, but it doesn’t matter when #EverybodyDies.

MJF grins as he goes back to Jericho and hammerlocks the arm to then hit a modified backbreaker! MJF stomps Jericho, digs his boots in, but goes until the ref’s count of 4! Fans boo and jeer but MJF just soaks it all up.

MJF drags Jericho up, throws haymakers, then chokes him in the corner! The ref counts, MJF stops at 4 again, then throws haymakers from all sides! The ref backs MJF off, Jericho pokes MJF in the eye! Jericho whips, MJF reverses but Jericho runs him over! Things speed up, Jericho runs MJF over but MJF throws Jericho out to the apron! Jericho is right up top and he leaps for double ax handles! Fans fire up for Jericho as he LIONSAULTS! He’s still got it! Jericho hoists MJF up top, throws hands, then climbs up to join MJF. Jericho rains down punches and gets 9, topping it off with a SUPER STEINER! Cover, TWO! MJF survives but fans rally for “JER-I-CHO!” Jericho drags MJF up, MJF throat chops back!

MJF knuckle locks and wrenches but Jericho throws forearms. MJF whips and OVERHEAD suplexes! Cover, TWO! MJF is too sore to be frustrated, and the fans rally up as both men slowly rise. MJF goes to a corner, climbs up top, but Jericho uses the ropes to trip him up! MJF is stuck up top, Jericho CHOPS him! Jericho climbs up, fans fire up, but MJF resissts. MJF GOURD BUSTERS Jericho down, adjusts, and leaps to DUMDUM STOMP the bad arm! Fans boo but MJF is after the arm again! Jericho fights back, MJF wrings him out into buckles! Cover, TWO! Jericho survives and fans rally up. Fans troll MJF as a “Stupid Idiot!” MJF seethes as he gets up and kicks at Jericho. MJF pie faces, too, then eggs him on! “What you got, b*tch?!”

Jericho counter punches MJF, trades elbows and fires off jabs, but MJF pokes the eye! MJF runs, into a CHOP! Jericho used the bad arm but he still took MJF down!

Jericho endures as MJF cranks over and over! Fans rally, Jericho rolls and gets a leg, but MJF resists the turn! Jericho still gets the WALLS OF JERICHO! MJF endures, Jericho sits down deep, but MJF powers up and he crawls for ropes! ROPEBREAK! Jericho lets go fast, thinking he won. The ref points out he didn’t, and he argues with Aubrey Edwards, as always.

Jericho stomps MJF, stalks up behind him, and then stomps him more. The ref backs Jericho off but MJF grabs at Aubrey. She gets mad at him but Jericho stalks over. MJF throws Jericho out, then hotshots him! Jericho denies the Heatseeker but MJF steals the CODE BREAKER! And then hits the HEATSEEKER! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives and fans rlaly up again. MJF stands, stomps Jericho, then steals the LIONSAULT! MJF has to land on his feet as Jericho moves and Jericho hits a CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO! Fans rally up more as Jericho drags MJF back up. MJF cradles, TWO!! That was close! MJF swings, Jericho moves, but Judas Effect is CAUGHT! MJF wrangles Jericho down, has the arm and SALT OF THE EARTH!

Jericho endures, fans rally, and Jericho drags himself to ropes. MJF BITES the hand, but Jericho still gets the ropebreak! MJF lets go in frustration, but he calls Wardlow for help! MJF gets the Dynamite Diamond Ring! Wardlow distracts the ref, but MJF misses! Someone tosses Floyd the Baseball Bat to Jericho! Jake Hager is here! How did he get Floyd from North Carolina to Florida so fast? But MJF pulls an Eddie and falls down! The ref thinks Jericho clobbered MJF with the bat!! Jericho defends his innocence, MJF rolls him up! MJF WINS!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall (joins the Inner Circle)

Hager protests, this is not what they wanted! But MJF got away with one, having outsmarted the 30 year veteran! But a deal is a deal, and Jericho stands with MJF, both their heavies on standby. Fans chant “Inner Circle!” and MJF offers that handshake again. Jericho takes it, and then they hug! Jericho welcomes MJF and Wardlow to the team! MJF holds the ropes open for Jericho and the two head out together. Will this new dream team take over all of AEW?

 

Welcome back to the alternative reality.

AEW Revolution returns in 2021! February 27th, AEW will bring about another dimension of wrestling! But with next year feeling like an eternity away, what will the landscape of AEW even look like by then?

 

Backstage interview with Orange Cassidy,

Congratulations are in order, what are his thoughts on his win over John Silver? Best Friends are excited, but Cassidy has no thoughts. Miro, Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford walk up and say this has nothing to do with Best Friends. This has to do with “Clementine” and all the stuff with The Dark Order. Penelope almost got hurt during that! Apologize! Cassidy says sorry but Kip SLAPS him! That wasn’t good enough! Cassidy takes off the sunglasses to say it’s fine. Cassidy and Best Friends head out. Kip doesn’t understand, but will Freshly Squeezed have a more impassioned response next time?

 

AEW World Championship I Quit match: Jon Moxley VS Eddie Kingston!

Last year, in Baltimore, for Full Gear 2019, The Maniac went 1v1 against Kenny Omega in an unsanctioned match. That match raised the bar for a new level of brutality. This year, Moxley is back on the card but in a much more personal battle. The Mad King was once one of Moxley’s closest friends, but the many twists and turns of life twisted and turned Kingston into a bitter enemy. Now, the only way to settle this is for one man to say the two words that can break even the strongest man’s spirit. Who will go beyond brutality in order to be THE AEW World Champion?

The introductions are made, Moxley says his prayer of forgiveness for what he has to do, and the belt is raised. Fans are fired up already as this match with nothing holding them back begins!

They start right away with a flurry of fists! Moxley gets the edge and knocks Kingston down! Kingston gets up fast to CHOP back, so Moxley CHOPS him! They CHOP back and forth more and more, egging the other on! Kingston fires off a strike fest but Moxley gets around for an ankle pick takedown. Kingston blocks with a clinch but Moxley bites whatever he can! Moxley gets an arm, Kingston fights up and they clinch at ropes. Moxley CHOPS but Kingston just walks it off! Kingston CHOPS, Moxley CHOPS, and then they shift to forearms and SLAPS! It’s a slap fight, both men egging each other on! Kingston kicks and CLUBS Moxley but Moxley throws a forearm! Moxley runs, into an OVERHEAD SUPLEX! Moxley goes to the apron and gets out, but Kingston goes out after him.

Fans rally and duel as Kingston rakes eyes! Kingston puts Moxley in, gets a chair, but Moxley DIVES to knock Kingston into railing! Moxley grabs that chair and CHUCKS it at Kingston’s head! Then Moxley whips Kingston into railing! Moxley clears a path and goes after Kingston’s fingers! “I’ll break your fingers!” Kingston doesn’t quit so Moxley TWISTS the fingers! Moxley drags Kingston up, throws haymakers, and then bumps him off railing! Kingston uppercuts back! Moxley throws a forearm, Kingston hits back with body shots. They brawl, Kingston rakes eyes and Moxley staggers away. Kingston follows and goes to suplex. Moxley blocks to snap suplex Kingston to the cement! The ref asks but Kingston refuses to say anything.

Moxley gets Kingston with a chinlock and grinds him down! Kingston endures, and BITES the arm! Moxley lets go, fans rally up as Kingston and Moxley get up. Kingston kicks Moxley back to ringside and then whips him into the railing! Moxley is sent for a loop but Kingston brings him up. Kingston CHOPS Moxley, throws punches while he has Moxley in a headlock. Kingston POSTS Moxley and then goes around the way to bring out a chair. And another chair! Kingston goes around the way again and hobbles into the ring. Fans rally as Moxley finds BARBIE! The barbed wire baseball bat is here! Kingston has his chairs together but Moxley SMACKS, and SMACKS, and SMACKS Kingston with the bat! Moxley kicks the chairs over, and he glares at Kingston through his own blood.

Moxley GRINDS barbed wire into Kingston’s forehead!! Kingston is already bleeding from a bloody lip, but Kingston again vows to Moxley, “You’re gonna have to kill me!” Moxley has drawn blood from Kingston’s face as well as other places, but Kingston refuses to give in. Moxley wants to hit him with the bat, but Kingston gets around to SAIDO! Kingston fires up to SAIDO again! Kingston grabs a chair, and CHUCKS it at Moxley! A simple but effective receipt there. Kingston punches Moxley but Moxley gouges eyes and throws haymakers! Kingston DECKS Moxley, then chokes him! Kingston lets up to grab Barbie for his own! Kingston sets it in position and SLAMS Moxley onto it! Moxley checks his chest and stomach while Kingston smiles a bloody smile.

Kingston SMACKS Moxley on the back with the chair! And then CHUCKS it into his head again! Kingston picks up Barbie and pulls off a loose strand off? Kingston wraps it around his own wrist, which is double-edged, but worth it in his mind as he punches away with the BARBED WIRE FIST!! And DIGS it into Moxley’s face! Moxley SLAPS Kingston but Kingston BARBED WIRE URAKENS!! Kingston gets the KIMURA!! Moxley endures, fights, but Kingston headbutts! Moxley BITES Kingston’s knee! Kingston clubs Moxley then SLAPS him all over! Moxley gets to a corner but Kingston digs his boot in! Fans rally as Kingston lets up to go fetch a chair. Kingston recreates his little chair pair and points it out to Moxley.

Kingston drags Moxley up and over, and fans that aren’t squeamish are still cheering them on. Moxley blocks a suplex to turn things around and snap suplex Kingston ONTO THE CHAIRS! Both men are down but somehow still stirring! Kingston CLOBBERS Moxley! Fans boo but Kingston heads to the outside. Kingston goes back under the ring to bring out a sack! Those are never good… Kingston brings the sack to the ring and pours it out. THUMBTACKS! Kingston brings Moxley over, but Moxley gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX! They avoid the tacks, and Kingston SAIDOS! Moxley LARIATS! Fans rally up as both men rise again. Moxley stands, staggers, but fires himself up!

Moxley drags Kingston up, brings him around, but Kingston avoids the Paradigm Shift to URENAGE Moxley onto TACKS!! Moxley refuses to give up, though! Kingston is furious and he rolls right out of the ring to fetch that barbed wire strand. Kingston double checks if Moxley quits, and he doesn’t. The wire is put aside and Kingston dumps over the timekeeper’s table! Kingston grabs himself a bottle of… Alcohol?! Kingston asks if Moxley quits and Moxley says no, so Kingston STOMPS Moxley’s nuts! Kingston tells Moxley to quit but Moxley still refuses, so Kingston STOMPS the nuts again!! Kingston CHOPS Moxley down, and GRINDS the nuts! Moxley refuses to quit so Kingston lets off.

Kingston grabs that bottle of rubbing alcohol, opens it up, and POURS it on Moxley’s back! All the wounds on Moxley’s back sting and burn! But that doesn’t break Moxley, so Kingston scoops a handful of tacks. Kingston sits Moxley up to SMASH the tacks on his face! But again, it is double-edged! Kingston just keeps going, not caring about his own pain. Kingston decides not to use the wire after all, but he uses the BULLY CHOKE! Moxley endures, and he dares Kingston to do his damndest! Kingston keeps cranking on the hold, then he throws crossface forearms! Kingston goes back to the Bully Choke but fans rally up. Kingston unleashes knees but Moxley gets a SLEEPER! Moxley squeezes tight and spins Kingston around, PILEDRIVER! Suzuki-san would be proud!

Moxley puts Kingston in the BULLY CHOKE! Kingston fights up, Moxley kicks low, PARADIGM SHIFT!! The fans that can still bare to watch cheer but Kingston flips Moxley off. Kingston stirs, Moxley grabs that big of wire and bends it around. “There’s no other way out, Eddie! Don’t make me do this.” Moxley wraps the wire around his forearm but again Kingston flips him off. BARBED WIRE BULLY CHOKE!!! The wire is right under Kingston’s neck!! Kingston sputters and the ref begs Kingston to give up! Kingston says “I QUIT!” Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley (still AEW World Champion)

“Winner” in name only, as Moxley had to do so much horrifying damage to a former friend. But in the end, Moxley is undefeated in 2020 and of course undefeated as champion. “That’s what a champion is made of! Heart, soul, blood and guts!!” Is there ever going to be an end to Moxley’s reign? Moxley wants to help Kingston up, but Kingston refuses. Kingston staggers away alone, but will he be able to pick up the pieces? And then Kenny Omega walks out! Omega is reminded of his match with Moxley at Full Gear. That’s why Omega will gladly stay out of the ring for right now. When and where will Maniac and Cleaner collide for the title they’re both willing to fight so hard for?


My Thoughts:

What a great PPV for AEW here! I feel like Full Gear is going to become the “extreme” PPV for AEW every year, and I actually think that’s great. The I Quit match was just as hardcore as last year’s “unsanctioned” match but perhaps not as wild or fast-paced as that one. Kingston is a methodical type, and Moxley can play that way, too, so it worked that these guys weren’t going all over the place to the same level as Moxley and Omega did last year. They did explore a lot of the ringside space but perhaps if there wasn’t COVID concerns anymore, they would’ve gotten into the stands where fans were or something. Still a really powerful match, and it was a brilliant little detail for the referee in for that match was Bryce, a legit friend of Kingston’s, as was made canon roughly a month ago. Bryce didn’t want Kingston to lose his career along with the match, so it worked that he was there pleading with Kingston as much as Moxley.

Opening with Omega VS Hangman was a great surprise and those two really went above and beyond. It makes a lot of sense for Omega to win. Moxley VS Omega, revisiting the first year of AEW, will make for great story as we go further into the second year. I suppose there is a way those two could drag it out until February when Revolution 2021 happens, but that’s a rather long build. Perhaps that’s part of why Archer wants to get involved against Kingston and “The Fam” on top of the title hunt. Also I just want to say that’s a bit of a lame and lazy name for Kingston’s faction but oh well. Hangman’s story is also the one that’s properly paced for the story Cody already did of “If I don’t win this title now, I’ll never challenge for it again.”

Let’s be honest, Cody still could’ve ended up TNT Champion this whole time even without playing that card. Hangman is surely going to pull that move during the Summer of 2021 when he finally makes his way back to the title for perhaps Double or Nothing or even All Out. Then Hangman will have his back against the wall against Moxley or Omega, which makes for a great match-up either way, and that will be Hangman’s moment so that he has the best actual long term storytelling of AEW. Speaking of Cody, glad to see WWE gave up on the name blocking thing. Cody VS Darby was great stuff, lots of strong character work and story references, and of course it had to be Darby winning. Team Taz getting involved at the end there was a good move given what has been built, including Will Hobbs again helping Darby. A little disappointed Cage and Starks both grabbed at the belt when Cage is FTW Champion, but I suppose wrestlers are allowed to be greedy about that stuff.

Both women’s championship matches were really good tonight, and it’s exciting to see Thunder Rosa back again. She’s signed with NWA until late into next year so obviously she’ll have another shot at that title. I wonder how much of that story will be divided between NWA and AEW. It’s obviously a clever way to get fans watching NWA, of course. As for the AEW Women’s World Championship, it’s great for Shida that she retains in a match on par, maybe even better than Double Or Nothing’s earlier this year. I just felt like story should’ve dictated Nyla winning with cheating thanks to Vickie, because that’s literally why they’re a duo now. But Vickie actually humbling Nyla there is an interesting twist, so maybe they have plans for how to add to this.

Cassidy VS Silver was pretty good but it still feels like something they could’ve done on Dynamite. Same goes for Miro and Kip confronting Cassidy and Best Friends backstage. Not quite sure where that story is going but Cassidy VS Miro could actually be really good stuff. Also not sure why we needed to fill time with Natural Nightmares announcing the first-ever Bunkhouse Match with Butcher and Blade, but hey, that sounds like it’ll be great stuff. The Elite Deletion was a really good cinematic style match, but it wasn’t quite what I expected at first, then turned into everything I totally wanted and more! Hurricane and Gangrel show up to reference the unfinished project Hardy was working on while still with WWE, so that was great, and there was great use of editing to up the brutality and physical damage on Sammy. Who knows what happens next, but maybe Sammy returns with some kind of BROKEN persona of his own to take this to an even crazier level.

Jericho VS MJF was a really good match, but of course MJF finds a way to win. I did like how he had a target and was going after it in the right arm, aka the Judas Effect arm. But then he also had his many back-up plans, and referencing the late, great Eddie Guerrero is always a plus. There has to come a point when tensions reach boiling levels, maybe Hager and Wardlow fight because of obvious overlaps in their role as the big, mean muscle. And honestly, Bucks VS FTR was everything expected and more. I loved that FTR and Bucks each used a few finishers of iconic tag teams from all around wrestling, even DIY Ciampa and Gargano of NXT. That alone is FTR saying Ciampa and Gargano are among the greats, which they are. But of course with the all or nothing stipulation, Bucks were going to win to be the flipside to Cody. Omega showing up but Hangman hanging back was great, too, as it gives us another glimpse into the still rocky dynamic within The Elite.

My Score: 9.4/10

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

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

The teams sort out and The American Dragon starts against Lio. The fans rally for “B C C! B C C!” as Bryan and Lio circle. They feel things out, Lio ducks the roundhouse but Bryan blocks a kick!

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!

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!

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 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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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

Toni Storm w/ Mariah May & Luther VS Alex Windsor!

The Leading Lady knows her beloved, budding protege’s past partner is coming for her prized possession, but she is looking to send a message tonight. Will Mina Shirakawa hear that message loud and clear? Or will Titanium Alex be nobody’s tune-up?

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. Alex fires off haymakers on Storm, then bumps her off buckles. Windsor soaks up the heat, whips Storm back in, then runs up to CHOP! Windsor soaks up more heat, then runs back in, but into a THESZ PRESS! Storm rains down fast hands, then fires up! The fans are with her and Storm gives Windsor a point-blank HIP ATTACK! And then another! And then another! Storm winds up, the fans fire up, and BOOM, another hip attack! Windsor tumbles out while the fans cheer.

Storm runs side to side to HIP ATTACK Windsor off the apron! Storm calls Mariah over, nuzzles her, then goes after Windsor. Storm CLUBS Windsor, drags her up, then reels her in. Windsor fights the suplex, throws body shots, and then swings, but Storm DECKS her first! Storm goes to the ring but Windsor gets her for a wheelbarrow! Windsor SMASHES Storm off the apron! Windsor KICKS Storm, gets her back up, and hits an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Storm flounders, Mariah is concerned but Windsor gets in her way. Windsor CLUBS Storm, HAMMERS away, then soaks up the heat. Windsor slides into the ring and Mariah checks on Storm.

Windsor taunts Storm, then goes back out to fetch her. But now Luther stands in Windsor’s way to keep her from getting at Mariah. Windsor drags Storm up, whips her, and POSTS her! Storm staggers around, Windsor runs up to CLUB her again, then throws body shots! Windsor CLUBS Storm, soaks up more heat, but Storm RAMS Windsor into barriers! The fans fire up as Storm rolls into the ring. The fans rally as Windsor drags Storm to a corner, to SLAM the legs into the post! And again! And again! And again! The ref reprimands, but Windsor YANKS Storm out to CLUB her down. Windsor rolls into the ring while fans rally behind Storm.

Luther & Mariah check on Storm, but Windsor goes out again. Luther says to stay back, but Windsor SHOVES Luther into Mariah, which sends Mariah into Storm! The fans boo but Windsor stomps away on Storm, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Windsor drags Storm up and ROCKS her with a forearm! Storm sputters and staggers around the way, but Windsor stalks after her. Windsor has Storm against barriers to CLAW the eyes! Windsor puts Storm in the ring, drags her to a cover, TWO! Storm is tougher than that, and Mariah scowls at Windsor. Windsor fires forearms on Storm, ROCKS her, then whips Storm to ropes to run her over! Cover, TWO! Windsor grows frustrated but she drags Storm up for a cravat. Storm endures the neck wrench, but Windsor throws in knee after knee!  Storm throws body shots but Windsor whips her to a corner.

Windsor runs in but Storm dodges! Rampage returns to single picture as Storm blocks boots, puts Windsor in ropes and hits a DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Windsor writhes, Storm goes to the far end, and the fans fire up for the close up! Storm runs in to SWEET HIP MUSIC! And then the fisherman SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Not quite perfect but Storm storms around. She drags Windsor up and reels her in, but Windsor wrenches out to HEADBUTT! Storm HEADBUTTS back! Storm runs, but Windsor clothesline at ropes! And again! And then a RIGHT ANGLE SLAM! Cover, TWO! Storm survives and the fans rally up!

Windsor drags Storm up but Storm drags her into a cradle! TWO, SHINING WINDSOR! Cover, TWO!! The fans rally for Storm again but Windsor snarls. Windsor storms up on Storm, drags her up, short arm- NO, Storm dodges the lariat, runs, and smothers the pop-up to STORM ZERO!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Harley Cameron.

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

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

 

AEW hears from Thunder Rosa and Deonna Purrazzo.

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

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

 

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

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

The trios sort out, Tupu starts against Kaun, and the two circle. Liona distracts Tupu and Kaun DROPKICKS Tupu into the corner! Kaun CHOPS, then fires off forearms! The ref counts, Kaun bumps Tupu off buckles to then fire off more forearms. Kaun CHOPS, the ref has him back off, and Kaun runs in. Tupu goes up and over, keeps moving, and Gutierrez tags in. Kaun CLOBBERS Tupu but Gutierrez kicks low! Gutierrez whips but Kaun reverses. Gutierrez ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Liona sneaks a tag. Gutierrez hurdles but turns around into a BOOT! Liona CLOBBERS Gutierrez! Liona looms over Gutierrez, drags him up, then BODY SHOTS!

Liona BODY SHOTS again, and again! Gutierrez falls, but Liona drags him up again, to LARIAT! The fans rally as Liona drags Gutierrez over and tags in The Machine. Gutierrez fires haymakers on Liona, but they do nothing! Liona SPINEBUSTERS Gutierrez! Cage smirks, Marston tags in, and Marston ducks ‘n’ dodges, but runs into a BIG back drop! Cage drags Marston up, reels him in, puts one out, an d gives Marston a POWERBOMB! Cage then tags to Kaun, Liona steps in with him. Tupu runs in, dodges The Gates, but Cage SUPERKICKS him! Then the Gates get Tupu up to CLOSE THE GATES!

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

Winners: The Cage of Agony, by pinfall

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

 

Rocky Romero VS Shota Umino!

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

The bell rings and the two shake hands to show there’s sportsmanship here. The fans cheer, the two tie up, and Shota wrenches to a wristlock. Rocky rolls, slips around, facelocks and cravats. Shota swim moves to wrench and wrangle Rocky to the mat. Rocky stands, Shota wrenches and wristlocks, but Rocky pulls hair. The ref reprimands, but Rocky wrenches through to an IRON OCTOPUS! Shota endures, powers out and throws Rocky down. Shota has the toehold, then digs a knee into the knee. Rocky turns over, stands up, clinches, and they end up on ropes. The ref counts, Rocky slowly lets off, and then CHOPS!

Shota just stares Rocky down! The fans fire up, and Shota winds up to CHOPS! Rocky staggers and sputters, Shota fires forearms! Shota spins, Rocky ducks the elbow, but runs into a scoop and DROP! Then a basement dropkick! The fans cheer and Shota does a dance similar to Mercedes Mone’s! Shota stomps Rocky around, CLUBS him, then stalks him to ropes. Shota CLUBS Rocky again, but Rocky grits his teeth. Shota ROCKS Rocky against ropes, then has him in a corner. Shota stomps and UPPERCUTS, then he stalks Rocky. Shota stomps Rocky, UPPERCUTS again, then whips to ropes. Rocky holds ropes to BOOT back!

Shota runs up but Rocky DUMPS Shota out! Rocky builds speed and DIVES! Shota’s head hits the desk and the ref checks him out while Rampage goes picture in picture.

It seems Shota is okay so the ref goes back to the ring. Rocky stands, fires up, and gives us some Latino Heat. Rocky puts Shota in the ring, drops a knee into the back, then stomps Shota before dropping a knee on the chest! Cover, TWO! Shota toughs it out but Rocky drags him up. Rocky KICKS the bad arm, wrenches it, then hits an ELBOW BREAKER! Shota goes to ropes, Rocky puts him through ropes, to KICK again! Rocky goes up a corner, gives some more Latino Heat, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Shota flounders, Rocky covers, TWO! Rocky argues the count but the count was fair, so Rocky clamps onto Shota with a cobra clutch!

Rocky thrashes Shota around but Shota endures. Shota fights up, throws elbows, but Rocky CLUBS him on the back. Rocky TOSSES Shota out, then aims from the apron! CROSSBODY, but Shota catches him! Shota pops Rocky up but Rocky slips free, so Shota SHOTGUNS him down! Both men are on the floor on the outside and the fans rally up. Shota rises up, fetches Rocky, and puts him in the ring. But Rocky DROPKICKS Shota back! Shota is down in the corner and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Rocky clotheslines Shota in a corner! Rocky keeps going, and clotheslines again! Then he keeps going, but Shota DROPKICKS him down! The fans fire up and Shota pounds the mat. The fans rally behind Shota and he aims at Rocky at the ropes. Slingshot, APRON DDT! The fans fire up again as Rocky flops to the floor! Shota puts Rocky in, then goes up a corner. Shota aims as Rocky flounders, MISSILE DROPKICK! Shota hurries to clinch, EXPLODER! Cover, TWO! Rocky survives but Shota stays focused. Shota waits on Rocky to rise up, then runs in, IGNIT- NO, Rocky makes it a backslide!

Shota rolls through the cover, blocks a kick, ducks the enzigiri, but not the REWIND HEEL! Shota staggers to a corner, Rocky runs in. Shota dodges, runs in, but Rocky UPPERCUTS! Rocky goes up and up and TORNADO DDTS! Rocky pounds the mat, the fans rally behind him now, and he aims from a corner. Shota rises, Rocky runs in, SLICED BREAD!! Cover, TWO!! Shota survives and Rocky roars! The fans are torn as Rocky drags Shota up. Rocky fires forearms, but Shota just eggs him on! The fans like that, so Rocky fires more forearms! Shota roars, but Rocky UPPERCUTS! And cravat, for the SLICED- NO, Shota poops free!

Shota POP-KNEES, then IGNITION!! Cover, TWO!! Rocky survives but Shota takes aim from the corner now! A shoutout to Ospreay here with his BLAZE BLADE!! And then PARADIGM SHIFT!! Cover, Shota wins!

Winner: Shota Umino, by pinfall

The Roughneck does indeed prove that what he learned from his senpai, his upperclassmen, have indeed made him into a great wrestler! But will he become one of the greatest wrestlers as he continues to battle all around the world?

 

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

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

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

Winner: Satnam Singh, by pinfall

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

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

PAC VS Jay Lethal w/ Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh!

The bell rings, Pac dodges Lethal to flying-mare! Pac has the headlock, Lethal puts him in a corner, and the ref counts. Pac lets go but Lethal stomps a mudhole! The ref counts, Lethal stops and walks it off. Sonjay knows he’s already won the side bet but he still wants Lethal to win the match. Lethal tosses Pac out, but Pac lands on the apron. Pac RAMS into Lethal, slingshots up and over, then comes back, only for Lethal to hip toss! Lethal cartwheels but Pac kips up! Pac SUPERKICKS Lethal, Lethal bails out, so Pac runs to FLY! Direct hit and Pac stares through the camera into the souls of the AEW roster!

Pac drags Lethal up, but he’s wary of Satnam. Pac puts Lethal in, goes up, and fans chant “HE’S OUR BASTARD!” Lethal rises, but Sonjay distracts the ref! Pac hops down, BOOTS Lethal, but Satnam trips Pac! And YANKS him out! The ref saw that one! The fans cheer as the ref EJECTS Satnam! Team Triple J is freaking out, but Lethal rains down fists on Pac. The ref counts, Lethal lets off but the fans sing ‘Hey hey hey! Goodbye~!” to Satnam. Lethal whips Pac hard into railing, then RAMS him into the POST! Lethal then runs to DROPKICK Pac down! Sonjay mockingly asks if Pac’s hurt, but the ref tells him to back off!

Lethal tells Sonjay to cool it so he doesn’t get kicked out. Lethal drags Pac up and into the ring while Sonjay mouths off to fans. Lethal drags Pac up, but Pac fires body shots. Lethal TOSSES Pac out, builds speed, and Lethal fakes the dive to Fargo Strut instead. The fans “WOO~” with Lethal and he smiles. Sonjay says Lethal’s the man! Lethal then goes out to fetch Pac, but Pac whips! Lethal reverses, Pac hits steel steps! Sonjay mocks Pac again with a fake apology, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Lethal leaves Pac behind, and he counts along with the ring count. Pac is still down at 5 of 10, but he drags himself up with the apron. Pac flounders in at 8, but Lethal stomps him down! Lethal drags Pac up, bumps him off buckles, then stomps a mudhole. Lethal RAMS Pac into the corner, snapmares him into a chinlock, and he grinds Pac down. Pac endures, pries at the hold, and fights up. The fans rally as Pac breaks free! Pac ROCKS Lethal, CHOPS him, then CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS again! Pac whips Lethal, Lethal reverses then TOSSES Pac out! Lethal wants the ring count again, but that’s just all distraction so Sonjay can stomp away!

The fans boo and try to point Sonjay out, but he scurries away. Lethal gets the ref to finally count, and then joins in. Pac is still down at 5, drags himself over, and Lethal grows anxious. Pac rises up and drags himself in at 9! Lethal runs to ELBOW DROP! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Pac survives by a literal foot but Lethal drops elbow after elbow on that leg! Lethal just keeps going with elbow after elbow, then soaks up some heat before dropping a knee on the knee! Cover, TWO! Pac toughs it out but Lethal covers again, TWO! Lethal argues the count, the ref says it is a fair count, so Lethal drags Pac around by the leg.

Lethal stomps away on Pac’s leg, and Rampage returns to single picture as Lethal steps through. Pac kicks but Lethal blocks that, and now Lethal steps through on that leg. Pac kicks again, Lethal blocks again, but then Pac kicks Lethal away! Lethal comes back, trips Pac, and steps through, but into a cradle counter! TWO!! Lethal escapes, gets around, back suplex! Pac lands out, so Lethal handsprings, but Pac SHOTGUNS Lethal while he’s upside-down! The fans fire up while both men are down! Sonjay coaches Lethal but the fans rally for Pac. A standing count starts, Pac drags himself up with ropes to stand at 5.

Pac storms up, blocks a shot to ROCK Lethal! Pac ROCKS Lethal again and again, then SOBATS! KICKS! SOBATS! Pac runs, to SHOTGUN BOOT! Lethal is dazed and Sonjay is worried as Pac goes up a corner. Pac watches like a hawk, to MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Lethal stays in this and Sonjay coaches him again. The fans rally for Pac as he watches Lethal rise again. Pac waistlocks but Lethal fights the lift. Lethal trips Pac, powers through, but Pac kicks and kicks and kicks! Lethal lets go, but he KICKS Pac’s leg out! Lethal drags Pac up, for a SHIN BREAKER! Then DRAGON SCREW! Then Lethal steps through, for the FIGURE FOUR!!

Pac endures, Sonjay tells him to quit, but the shoulders are down! ONE as Pac tilts to the side! Pac reaches out for ropes but Lethal thrashes and pulls on that leg! Pac fights over to the ROPEBREAK!

But Pac goes up to get a leg! Lethal CLUBS away on Pac, then drags him up top. Lethal reels Pac in, but Pac fights the lift! Pac back drops Lethal away! The fans fire up and Pac adjusts. Sonjay stresses out as Pac aims, but Sonjay gets on the apron!

Pac hops down, runs up and BOOTS Sonjay down! The fans cheer, but Lethal is lurking! Lethal runs in, Pac dodges, but Lethal switches to SNAP GERMAN! Lethal handsprings, but Pac sidesteps to run! But Lethal still hits a CUTTER! But that wasn’t lethal enough, so Lethal handsprings again! LETHAL- NO, Pac dodges to LARIAT!! And then, BRUTALIZER!! Lethal is caught, he QUITS, Pac wins!!

Winner: Pac, by submission

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
