The mentor takes the pin from his mentees, but a win is a win either way. Will the #HardyParty roll on together towards even bigger and better?

 

Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.

Alex Marvez congratulates MJF, the New York Times has honored his by declaring his part in “Le Dinner Debonair” the Best Performance of 2020. Jericho wants to point out that not only did he create that, he was the costar. Yes, a great job, Christopher. But MJF says he’s back-to-back Dynamite Diamond Ring bearer and now the Best Performance of 2020. New York Times forgot one thing: he couldn’t have done it without CJ. And how dare people online say MJF is so much better than Jericho! Jericho is a mentor, the #GOAT, and honestly, a best friend. MJF couldn’t have done it without any of these “sexy hooligans.” Jericho congratulates MJF and MJF thanks him for it. Will they and all the Inner Circle have the best group performance in that titanic twelve man tag match?

 

AEW sees how the holidays are going at the Nightmare Family home.

Brandi and Cody Rhodes decorate the tree, but then someone rings their doorbell. They go to the door together, and someone has left a little present box for them. Cody picks it up, they sit and open it, and the sender is anonymous. But what was sent was a pair of Gucci baby booties! The Rhodes is expecting a baby in 2021! And Pharaoh is already training to be baby security! Congratulations to Cody and Brandi!

 

Cody Rhodes w/ Brandi Rhodes & Arn Anderson VS Angelico w/ Jack Evans!

And speaking of the American Nightmare, he is going to show he fears no giants nor big talk tough guys! Will the future father make his unborn child proud of him for fighting on? Or will the last of the true hybrids ruin this special moment for them?

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by pinfall

The American Nightmare, the Prince of Pro-Wrestling, the Ace of AEW, and a big winner here tonight! But Team Taz has to ruin the fun by coming out. “It’s only the right thing to do right now, because congratulations are in order.” On behalf of the rest of the team, Taz congratulates Cody not for the match, but for being a daddy! “Oh~, he’s gonna be a daddy!” Ricky Starks says all this talk about being daddies, where were the congratulations for making Cody and “turtle boy” Darby Allin into Team Taz’s “sons?” Starks didn’t get a congrats, Cage didn’t get a congrats. But that’s just how it happens around here. But in regards to Darby, he will be minced meat at the hands of The Machine!

And Cody, here’s what’s happening now! Team Taz is going to put you on paternity leave! But wait! The crow! The snow! “It’s STIIIIING!” The Icon has his iconic bat, but Powerhouse Hobbs wants right after him! The rest of Team Taz has Hobbs reconsider, and they all retreat to the back. Darby and Sting stare down from all this far away, and then Sting gives a parting wink to Cody. Is Sting being a shadowy guardian angel for the young guns of AEW?

 

AEW returns with a backstage interview with Miro!

The Best Man made sure Orange Cassidy did not win the Dynamite Diamond Ring, and then he hospitalized three members of the AEW security staff! For that, management is fining him $75,000 total, 25K for each! What does he have to say for himself? What problem does he have with Orange Cassidy? “Well, he simply doesn’t care.” It’s all about numbers, likes, subscriptions, and yet Cassidy doesn’t care about them! Now Miro gets fined? Miro feels Cassidy owes him that money. But next week is the holidays! There will be a huge announcement then, but Miro promises to break the internet again as he returns to AEW Dark to take on Sonny Kiss. And then for Dynamite, it will be the WEDDING DATE ANNOUNCEMENT for Kip Sabian and Penelope Ford!

But what about the people he put in the hospital?! It’s almost Christmas! “BAH HUMBUG!” It’s Miro’s birthday. Will Miro be made to feel remorse for what he’s done?

 

Eddie Kingston goes to the ring!

And the Mad King already has a mic to say, “Alright, boo, cheer my name, do whatever you want to do. Because at the end of the day, I don’t care about any of you!” That includes the wrestlers at ringside, the people at home, and the cameraman. But Kingston is here to address his enemies! “Ladies and gentlemen, I have a lot of enemies.” First, “the man upstairs,” because haha, Kingston’s still alive! Second, the guy he and The Fam took out! The Bastard, Pac, got hurt! He’s gone home again and is never coming back again! His career is DONE! Go ahead, boo, you trained seals.

Third, that “big goofy bastard,” Lance Archer! But speaking of, here he comes! And the Murderhawk Monster is right on Kingston with furious fists! The Butcher and the Blade hurry out to go after him but he holds them off. Archer runs, Kingston clamps on, and then Blade dodges for Butcher to throw hands! Blade comes back, he and Butcher stomp away, and then Kingston adds on! But here comes the LUCHA BROTHERS! Kingston dares them to do something, but they’re not alone! PAC IS BACK! That neck isn’t keeping him out after all! And then Archer gets up and it’s a 4v3 beating! Bunny Allie can only watch as Kingston is thrown out and then thrown into barriers!

Archer AND Pac mug Kingston against railing, while Fenix and Pentagon “Uno! Dos! Tres!” DOUBLE SUPERKICK Butcher and the Blade! Then Pentagon goes to the apron to SUPERKICK Blade, and Fenix runs to FLY and TORNILLO them both down! Kingston ends up back in the ring but Archer choke grips! Pac BOOTS Kingston down and stomps away! But Archer says Kingston is HIS prey. Pac doesn’t care and he glares at Kingston. The Fam regroups and retreats while Pac and Archer argue this out. But enemies of one’s enemies are your friends, so will Archer and Pac have a loose alliance for the sake of crushing Kingston?

 

Dasha Fuentes interviews Dustin Rhodes.

Has he thought at all about the offer issued by The Dark Order? He has. “Seven was a bad idea years ago, and Seven was a bad idea last week.” Dustin makes it clear to Evil Uno that Uno said Dustin is the “third least important person in the Rhodes family,” but that is WRONG! Dustin told Uno like he told Number 10, the Dark Order will all fall, one by one by one! Next week, Uno is next! Holiday Bash, Dustin fixes to kick some ass!

Both teams shout at each other for breaking rules, but Darrius ROCKS Sammy with a European Uppercut!

Darrius ROCKS Sammy, tags Dante in and they hand-off the wristlock. Sammy wrenches back but Dante rolls and handsprings to break free, but Sammy DECKS him!

Alex Marvez interviews Thunder Rosa backstage.

We’ve all seen her attack Britt Baker, but Rosa wants to address “The Face of the AEW Women’s Division” herself. “The Role Model, the Dentist,” Britt tells Rosa doesn’t belong in AEW. But Rosa has been wrestling all over the world while Britt stuck her big nose in that NWA Women’s World Championship match! It is Britt’s fault Rosa lost! So they want to ask Rosa why now she is beating Britt’s ass? Maybe because Rosa does belong! For Britt to have the BALLS to say otherwise, Rosa laughs!

Rebel storms over and says one, that is a horrible laugh (Rebel would know) and two, don’t ever talk like that about The Dentist! Rosa will say whatever she wants. But then Britt CLOBBERS Rosa from behind! “Oh, I thought my ‘big nose’ smelled an unwanted guest!” Britt says Rosa is not welcome here! And she puts Rosa in the Rings of Saturn! Rebel pours water on Rosa’s face so they can smear her face paint! Britt pushes Rosa down and asks if the camera still works. Maybe Rosa’s ugly face broke it! Britt wants to prove she’s the Baddest Bitch in AEW, but she may have just pissed off the baddest bitch in NWA! When will these two finally collide 1v1 in the ring?

 

The Acclaimed VS SoCal Uncensored!

Max Caster and Anthony Bowens have been blazing up the AEW Tag Division ranks, but they still need to prove they’re better than one of the most experienced teams in wrestling today! What Platinum level diss rap will Caster have when AEW returns from break?

AEW returns and Bowens has the 5 Tool Player Boombox from Dark so Caster can feel the beat! “Yo, yo yo! We about to beat S C U! Leave ’em looking like a victim on S V U! Yo, Chris Daniels, nothing but a doormat. Call him CD, you’re an outdated format! Yo, what up, Kazarian? How’s your back doin’? You been doin’ all the carryin’! Nice hair, but my hair’s cooler. I heard you got hair plugs! Well do ya?!” The Young Bucks are ringside, and they are not feeling it. Wait, Kazarian gets the mic? He isn’t as confident in his battle rap abilities, but even he can do better! UH OH!

“Yo! I hope you dudes wrestle better than you rap. Because what I heard and they heard sounded like CRAP! You got your fake gold chains and you’re out here dissin’? Are you The Acclaimed or are you Man on a Mission? You tryin’ to drop rhymes, trying to make hits, but just like the year 2020, that whole thing was the shits!” Bowens tries to keep Caster calm but Kaz isn’t done! “Listen, green boys, I’m a give you a pass.

Yo, I think that you should duck. Shootin’ on you losers, I don’t give a WHOA~!” Can’t go there.

But Bowens tells AEW that the Acclaimed has arrived! And Bucks, if you’ve got the balls, next week for the Holiday Bash, they’ll put the tag titles on the line! “And that’s a mic drop!” The Bucks look ready to have that match if just to shut The Acclaimed up! But will the Bucks still have the gold come Christmas?

 

Dasha Fuentes interviews Top Flight.

Why did Darrius and Dante specifically save Griff from Jericho and MJF at the end of their 12 man tag match? They want us to focus on the two names just mentioned. Jericho, first ballot hall of famer. MJF, AEW’s hottest, youngest star. Er, well, that was until AEW signed Top Flight. True. Top Flight knows all about those two whereas Jericho and MJF didn’t know much about them. But now they do! In fact, maybe Top Flight hit them so hard they’ve already forgotten. This is Darius and Dante, the coldest tag team in the game! And to make sure they never forget, Top Flight challenges Jericho and MJF to a 2v2 tag match for Dynamite! Accept, “or run away like two little bitches.” Which will it be?

 

Big Swole & Serena Deeb VS Ivelisse & Diamante!

When Brandi Rhodes was in trouble, Big Swole and the NWA Women’s World Champion came to help. When Red Velvet was in trouble, they did the same. However, La Sicaria and the Cuban Diamond decided to get after them at that same moment! Now Swole and Serena face the AEW Women’s Tag Cup winners 2v2, will Brandi and Velvet be avenged?

The teams sort out and Deeb starts with Ivelisse. They circle, tie up, and go around. Ivelisse throws Deeb down but Deeb gets up fast.

Deeb bumps Ivelisse off buckles, tags in Swole, and Swole brings Ivelisse around for a big uppercut, only for Ivelisse to spin through it. Tag to Diamante, Diamante and Swole tie up and Diamante gets around to club Swole. Swole blocks a kick, spins Diamante and hits a backbreaker!

Swole headlocks, Diamante powers out and but Swole comes back to get around and shove Diamante. Swole back drops Diamante hard, then hurries to keep her from Ivelisse. Diamante hits back and throws Swole down by her hair! Dismante DECKS Deeb then goes after Swole. The ref is busy with Deeb, Swole gets put in the ropes and Ivelisse hits a hotshot to Diamante’s GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, ONE!? Diamante drags Swole up, clubs her then tags Ivelisse in. They mug Swole while AEW goes picture in picture, and then hit a double suplex! Cover, TWO!

Ivelisse clubs Swole, drags her around into a chinlock and wraps on tight. Swole endures as fans rally up, and Swole fights up to fight out! Ivelisse CLUBS Swole, facelocks again, and hits a TWISTING DDT! Cover, TWO! Swole survives and Ivelisse is frustrated, but she drags Swole up to bump her off buckles. Ivelisse CHOPS Swole, tags Diamante and Diamante CHOPS Swole, too! Diamante fires off haymakers and stomps, then digs her boot in! The ref reprimands but Diamante drags Swole up with a cravat to snapmare and KICK! Cover, TWO! Diamante keeps Swole from Deeb with a headlock but Swole throws body shots. Diamante CLUBS Swole down then rains down fists as AEW goes to break!

AEW returns and Deeb is in! She rallies on the tag cup winners as she scoop slams Ivelisse then CLOBBERS Diamante! Deeb drop toeholds Ivelisse and gets the legs for a deathlock! Diamante runs in but Deep kicks her, to suplex Diamante while hitting the SNAP LOCK on Ivelisse! Fans fire up as Deeb has Diamante and throws uppercuts! Deeb whips, Diamante kicks but gets caught to a DRAGON SCREW! Ivelisse kicks Deeb and whips her, but Deeb slips out and Ivelisse only gets buckles! Deeb catches Ivelisse in the ropes with the facelock, and then hotshot neckbreakers!

Fans fire up more as Deeb fireman’s carries Ivelisse, for a GUT BUSTER! Deeb steps through to a FIGURE FOUR! Ivelisse endures and rolls to ropes, tag to Diamante! Diamante stomps Deeb down then throws haymakers! Ivelisse comes back, she and Diamante double KNEE Deeb, then lift her for a double SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Deeb survives and shocks Diamante!

Winners: Serena Deeb & Big Swole, by submission

The World Tag Cup winners can’t believe they lost to two singles wrestlers! But the Vicious Vixens rush out!? Nyla Rose CLOBBERS Deeb, and Ivelisse goes after Swole! Vickie Guerrero even gets some stomps in! This is 4v2 but here comes RED VELVET with a chair! She SMACKS Nyla, then chases off Ivelisse and Diamante! Have the Vicious Vixens only stirred up Velvet’s vicious side?

 

Best Friends speak backstage.

“Santana and Ortiz. Fellas, this will never be over between us.” But right now, there are more important things to attend to. Miro sabotaged Cassidy’s match! You ruined Cassidy’s life! But Miro is going to use the Holiday Bash to announce Kip’s and Penelope’s wedding date? Well the Best Friends are so excited, because they’ll be at the Holiday Bash! They’re festive as hell! Trent and Chuck can’t wait. Will Miro regret publicly announcing the coming public announcement?

 

AEW has big matches for the Holiday Bash!

Not only will there be the AEW World Tag Team Championship match, Young Bucks VS The Acclaimed, and the grudge match of Top Flight VS Jericho & MJF, but there will be a Six Man Tag! Jurassic Express will be in full as they take on The Dark Order’s Alan Angels, Preston Vance and even Colt Cabana! Will Jungle Boy, Marko Stunt and Luchasaurus keep on track towards their own tag title opportunity?

Plus, Hikaru Shida will be back in action, will she finally get to face her fears in the form of Abadon? And as Dustin Rhodes put forward, he is facing Evil Uno to check him off the list! Then, after the shocking return and the chaotic encounter, The Bastard, PAC, is back in action against The Butcher! Will Pac make sure Eddie Kingston understands what’s coming for The Fam?

 

FTR barges in and gets on commentary.

Cash Wheeler asks if anyone knows what’s happened to the AEW Tag Division. Is it an afterthought already? Because why are they highlighting a sideshow attraction when you have the “heart and soul” of the division right here?! Dax Harwood says he understands how television time ain’t cheap. But if FTR, the greatest tag team of a generation, the first-ever GRAND SLAM Tag Team Champions, Pro-Wrestling Illustrated’s NUMBER ONE team of 2020, is being pushed to the side for a fake-ass Tarzan and a grown-man in a dinosaur costume, that doesn’t sit right! This is how they feed their families! If you threaten that in any way, they will eliminate that threat! Jurassic Express, you are in the crosshairs of FTR! #FearTheRevelation!!

 

No Holds Barred: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS Joey Janela w/ Sonny Kiss!

There is a lot of history to this match right here! First off, the Unsanctioned Match the Best Bout Machine and the Bad Boy had on AEW Dark! Second, Janela not being able to participate in the AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament! But now, The Cleaner must face Janela again in a No Disqualifications, ANYTHING GOES main event! Will Janela make up for both losses and missed opportunities?

AEW returns and we see the entrance of “The man who has held the AEW World title for 14 days. He is the only AEW wrestler to pin Jon Moxley. He helped draw AEW’s largest television rating of the year on last week’s Dynamite. He appeared on last week’s episode of Impact Wrestling, which by no coincidence, increased their audience by 33%. He is so talented, that he appeared last Saturday night in two countries, on two major shows which were available to watch all around the world, including but not limited to NOOORTH CAROLINA~! He is the All Elite Wrestling Woooooorld Champion… KENNY, OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEEEEEGAAAAA!”

There are more Sweepettes! Omega makes his entrance, with Don Callis not far behind, and then pyro! But then Janela throws a trash can at Kenny’s head! Janela SMACKS Omega with the can and Callis says commentary is laughing but they’re up to the task of calling an Omega match so he’s taking over! The bell rings, Janela throws Omega out then builds speed, to DIVE! Direct hit and Omega hits railing! Schiavone tells Callis to kiss his ass about taking his headset. Janela brings out chairs! He sets one up, whips Omega into more railing, and then sets up more chairs. Fans fire up with Janela as he goes over, but Omega KOTARO KRUSHERS Janela onto one of the chairs!

Omega gets back in the ring and wants to hear the Terminator drums! Fans boo but some do clap along. Omega runs and wrecks Janela with a dropkick! Callis uses his mic to just call commentary on his own now, of course hyping up Omega. Janela sits in the other chair, Omega runs and FLIES! Direct hit through the chair! Callis says no one does it like Omega! Omega brings out cookie trays, drags Janela up but Janela flounders down. Omega has the cookie sheet and he SMACKS Janela! Callis also mocks JR’s “BAH GAWD!” as he calls Omega hitting “this disgusting hardcore wrestler” Janela again!

Omega tells Kiss he’ll get some, too, if he doesn’t back off! Omega takes a spare mic and gives his own play by play! “I’ll show you just how easy this is!” Janela isn’t feeling so good, is he? Get up! And listen tot his audio. SMACK with the sheet! How did that feel for Omega? “IT FELT GREAT!” Omega puts a trash can on top of a post, and tells the ref to hold the mic. Omega goes up, gets his can, and then FULL METAL MOONSAULTS onto Janela! Cover, TWO!! Janela survives and Omega is furious! “Get up, Joey! Get up! By your little piggy tails!” Omega CHOPS Janela right back down!

Omega isn’t done and he point blank KNEES Janela down again. “What’s the matter, huh!?” Omega SMACKS Janela with the sheet again! And then he brings the crushed can and he puts it on Janela’s back. Omega goes to the apron and springboard DOUBLE STOMPS the can into Janela’s back! Omega drags Janela up as Callis says it’s time to hit the pay window. Electric Chair, fold, but Janela POISON-RANAS! Fans fire up for Janela as Omega and Callis are finally speechless! Kiss hurries to get something for Janela! It’s a TABLE! Anything goes, after all! Kiss sets the table up for Janela and Janela finds some other things from under the ring.

Janela drags Omega up to punch away at the ramp! He punches Omega onto the table, then climbs up the corner! Janela FLYING LEG DROPS Omega through the table!! Fans lose their minds as Janela drags Omega from the wreckage! Janela puts Omega in, climbs back up and MOONSAULTS but flops! Omega fires himself up to V-TRIGGER Janela! Then he runs to V-TRIGGER again! Janela is stiff as a board but Omega Electric Chair lifts him, for ONE WINGED ANGEL!! Cover, Omega wins!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall

No respect, no mercy, and no title opportunities for Janela! Omega holds his title up high and Callis says “All the haters that we had to listen to since that godforsaken tournament have been silenced! No more unanswered questions for the world champion!” But then Pac and the Lucha Brothers walk out on stage! “Oi, oi, Kenny! Me and you, Kenny, we have some unfinished business. But you see, I’m not here tonight to be selfish. Oh, no.” Death Triangle is here to address injustice. Look here at Rey Fenix. Think back to October. Fenix was also in that contender’s tournament, but he never lost. So please explain how exactly Omega is the rightful champion?

Callis asks “Pock” if he suddenly got some executive promotion while he and Omega were making history? If not, here’s a little lesson in the business. “Wrestlers don’t tell the world champion what to do!” Well Don, that’s where you’re wrong. They talked with Tony Khan, and the match has already been made! Whether Omega likes it or not, he will defend his title against Fenix! Omega is furious at the “nobody” making matches for his title! But another eliminator tournament “what if” will finally be answered! Will Omega still be champion for the holidays?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode to set up the holiday hat trick AEW is about to pull off. Between tonight and Being The Elite, Hangman and Dark Order interacting is a lot of fun, but I am surprised they didn’t win. #HardyParty definitely has their own story developing now that Matt is inexplicably turning Heel, not really sure what that is about. Dustin has a pretty good promo to send a message to Evil Uno, and that match should be good. Cody had a really good match with Angelico but of course Cody wins. And of course Team Taz shows up to cut a promo on Cody and Darby, and of course Sting shows up to counter them. Still thinking we get a Six Man of Cody, Darby & Sting VS Hobbs, Starks and Cage at some point.

Wardlow could not make it for “family matters,” hopefully that isn’t too serious but well wishes just in case. Even so, the resulting 12 man rather than 14 man was still a great match, and perhaps flowed just a bit better since it was three different tag teams on the Face side, with no odd man out in Brandon Cutler. Cassidy being on commentary not saying anything was a great touch, too. Of course the Inner Circle wins, but I like that Top Flight is stepping up to face MJF and Jericho. There could easily be a moment of dissention from MJF because of his ever growing ego, but I don’t think anything happens to turn things around from the “ultimatum” and the group’s decision to stay together.

I’m torn on how The Acclaimed VS SCU went down. Kaz giving back his own rap, burying Caster’s gimmick, was not how I would’ve liked that to go down. But I suppose The Acclaimed winning, with some cheap tactics at that, makes up for the rap battle “loss.” Caster calling out Bucks with a diss rap also worked out, and getting a tag title match already is pretty big. Obviously Bucks win but The Acclaimed being able to say they had a shot is what’s important. FTR had a great promo calling out Jurassic Express after the highlight reel, and I have a feeling they’re going to get involved in that Six Man Tag Jurassic Express has with The Dark Order to then set up their own match.

Rosa, Britt and Rebel had a good segment, that grudge match has to happen for one of the New Year’s Smash nights. Swole & Deeb VS Ivelisse & Diamante was a good match, and I’m surprised the Faces won in this situation given Ivelisse & Diamante are the tag cup winners. But I suppose it was just so Vicious Vixens could attack. I feel like Vickie is going to recruit Ivelisse & Diamante, and then Jade Cargill returns and we get that 8 Woman Tag where Brandi also returns. Shida being on Dark and then coming back next week, they’re taking a nice slow burn towards her next title match. It’s obviously going to be Abadon, and I bet it happens for one of the New Year’s Smash nights.

Omega VS Janela in the No Holds Barred was a great main event, though maybe with some points off for Callis droning on to put Omega over and then Omega getting in on the “commentary” himself. But that was still a good table spot from Janela. Omega of course wins, and I actually like that they’re continuing this idea of Omega facing the opponents he was meant to in the tournament. Omega VS Fenix is going to be great, as will be the continued feud of Pac, Archer and Eddie Kingston’s Fam. That was also a great segment, Pac VS Butcher will be fun, but I’m not sure the endgame if Archer and Pac are both here and going after Kingston.

My Score: 9.1/10

Nese puts Brody in the ring, tags Daivari, and they mug Brody more, They both run, to DOUBLE SHOULDER Brody down! Cover, TWO! Daivari hurries to bring Brody around in a facelock, and turns him for a NECKBREAKER! Daivari CHOKES Brody on ropes, the ref counts, and Daivari lets off. Daivari argues with the ref, so that Sterling can CHOKE Brody! Sterling scurries away like the weasel he is, and then Daivari stands on Brody in the corner!

The ref counts, Daivari lets off and he drags Brody over. Tag to Nese, and Nese stomps Brody while Daivari anchors the legs. Rampage returns to single picture as Nese and Daivari let off. Nese soaks up heat, stalks Brody to the corner, and he grins as he says “All day, baby.” Nese CHOPS but Brody gets mad! Brody fires forearms and elbows, DECKS Nese, then storms up. Nese throat chops! Then Nese runs, but into an URENAGE! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Brody crawls, reaches out, hot tags to Malakai and Daivari!

Nese gets in but Malakai ELBOWS him down! Daivari kicks and whips but Malakai RANAS! Nese is up but the JUMP KNEE knocks him down! Daivari stands and Malakai QUEBRADAS him down! Cover, TWO!

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

The Savior of the Backbreaker is set for an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match tomorrow night on Collision against Dalton Castle. But in an occasion of turnabout is fair play, The Conglomeration is watching him from commentary! Will the presence of Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy & Mark Briscoe make Roddy better or worse than usual?

The bell rings and Kyle says that while he loves and appreciates Roddy, Taven & Bennett, they’re being more like the Undisputed Cling-dom! Meanwhile, big Ben Bishop stalks some smack on Roddy, and then pretends he can’t see him. Roddy says okay, be that way. They tie up, Cassidy points out just how tall Ben is, and big Ben shoves Roddy down! The fans fire up, Roddy comes right back, but Ben TOSSES him away! Roddy bails out, the fans fire up for Ben, and The Kingdom coaches Roddy up. Roddy runs in, dodges Ben, and kicks at the legs! Ben drops to size so Roddy and CHOP! CHOP! And CHOP!

Roddy kicks the legs, fires boxing elbows, then ELBOWS Ben before he runs and SICK KICKS! Then he hits an OLYMPIC SLAM! The fans fire up with Roddy and the Kingdom, then the STRONG KNEE knocks Ben down! Cover, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

The Conglomeration is in agreement, that was impressive work by Roddy, because Roddy is indeed that good. But Cassidy says it is time to go stare down with them. The Conglomeration stand on stage to stare down The Kingdom, but Roddy needs to focus on tomorrow night. Will Roddy punch his golden ticket to an ROH World Championship match? Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

The Virtuosa is served a glass of wine, and says we’ve never been formally introduced. We’ve all seen what she can do in the ring, but does anyone know what it means to be THE Virtuosa. “Wrestling isn’t just a sport or an art form, it’s both. And more set to a quickening pace than a staccato beat of bodies slamming, bones cracking, tendons tearing! All building towards a beautiful and violent crescendo.” Deonna likes what AEW has forced her to become. “Because here, actions have consequences.” And Deonna vows to burn the empire to the ground, to remake it in her own image. This is the Age of the Virtuosa.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Renee Paquette caught up with Chris Jericho, “Big Bill” Morrissey & Bryan Keith, and asks what the hell. Yes, she’s seen The Learning Tree do “a ton of horrible other things” throughout his career, but tonight with Samoa Joe crossed a line. What was he thinking? Jericho smiles, the leather belt gifted to him by Martha Hart still wrapped around his hand. He waves to the camera and says, “Hi, guys. And Renee, I don’t know why you’re so surprised. This is exactly what I’ve been saying for a long, long time. If you’ve listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. Look at The Redwood and Bad Apple.

“But if you don’t listen to The Learning Tree, bad things happen. Shibata had a chance, now his arm is hurt. Hook had a chance, we had to burn his face off with a fireball. And Samoa Joke, for years, I’ve been telling you to listen to The Learning Tree, you didn’t, we ran you through a wall, and now you’re in the hospital.” Bill is stifling a laugh this entire time. Jericho says if Joe needs something to help with his inflamed muscles he might have, try ginger and black pepper. It’s really good for you. See, Renee? Lots of lessons to be learned. And even more will be learned on Dynamite 250, with a special edition of TV Time with Chris Jericho. Thanks, guys~…!

Jericho leaves, and Bill says one of the biggest lessons that Jericho has taught them is that the more TV Time, the better. And they want as much TV Time as possible! Because The Learning Tree, The Bad Apple and The Redwood are always maximizing their minutes. She should try it some time. Keith says if you don’t respect Chris Jericho, they will MAKE you respect Chris Jericho. Will everyone in AEW learn the hard way that Jericho isn’t kidding around?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Rachael Ellering!

We heard the Virtuosa speak her mind, but La Mera Mera looks to show, not tell. Will Rosa be more than ready to go another round with Deonna? Or will the Queen of Strong Smile make some bold moves of her own?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Rachael shoves Rosa away, and the two reset. They tie up, Rosa headlocks, but Rachael lifts her!

Rachael CHOPS Rosa, storms up and CHOPS again. Rachael whips corner to corner hard, then runs in to LARIAT again! Rachael whips Rosa back in, runs in, but Rosa dodges!

The fans fire up and Rosa aims as Rachael goes to ropes. BANG and Rosa runs in to DROPKICK! Rachael sputters, Rosa reels her in, but Rachael bucks the driver! High stack, TWO! Rachael hurries to whip Rosa, but Rosa holds ropes. Rosa BOOTS back, runs up, and wheelbarrows, victory roll into a STOMP 182! Rosa then clamps on and has the COBRA CAMEL CLUTCH! Rachael taps, Rosa wins!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by submission

La Mera Mera shows respect to Rachael by helping her up and hugging it out. But then DEONNA runs out there! And she SHOVES Rachael into Rosa! Then she DECKS Rachael for the hell of it before going after Rosa! Rachael drags Deonna off of Rosa, so Deonna BOOTS her down! The fans boo but Deonna BOOTS Rosa down! The Virtuosa shows her violent side, but will Rosa make her regret it?

Six Man Tag: Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

There have been more words flying back and forth between these trios than anything, but now it is time to put up or shut up! Will The Martin Brothers & The Sight to See show everyone why they’re the Coldest Trio in the Game? Or will Lee Moriarty, Anthony Ogogo & the man himself, Big Bad Shaney T swat them all out of the sky?

Action then slingshots back in, but Lee steps in!

Action builds speed, the ref stops Lee, but the ref doesn’t see Ogogo CLOBBER Action! The fans boo and then the ref notices Ogogo, but Ogogo steps away. Shane storms into the ring to drag Action up and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Action over to the STP corner, and he CHOPS Action! Lee exaggerates his shock, and then Shane DECKS Action. Shane drags Action up, tags Lee, and they mug Action. Lee stomps Action, drags him up, bumps him off buckles, and Lee fires forearms and CHOPS on repeat! The ref counts, Lee stomps a mudhole, but the ref gets in there to stop him.

Shane flips Action back up to KNEE him in the face! Ogogo and Lee get in for defense, Shane DECKS Action!! Cover, STP wins!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

That could’ve been a win by knockout with that killer haymaker! But will Shane Taylor Promotions continue to rampage until they prove they prove they’re the elite of All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage, and while they shoved five matches onto this card again, they at least did their best to put story behind most of these. Roderick Strong was of course beating Ben Bishop, but they gave us a storyline plug by having The Conglomeration on commentary. And while Thunder Rosa was of course beating Rachael Ellering, they gave us story build with Deonna attacking them both. I feel like this will give us Deonna VS Ellering next, to stretch things out so that the true blowoff of Deonna VS Rosa isn’t until All In, probably in the All In Zero Hour. For that matter, that’s probably where Conglomeration VS Undisputed Kingdom 3v3 happens, too.

I’m a bit torn on the promo from Learning Tree Jericho and crew. The positive is that it was really good. I said for Dynamite that I like how the payoff is Jericho’s gone from condescending to sinister, and even Big Bill is getting into this crazy persona. The negative for me is that they kinda shoved this in here. I know we DO need to hear Jericho’s explanation, but if it was “after Dynamite,” then find a way to make it part of Dynamite. Or just leave it for Saturday Night Collision so that you aren’t already stuffing a one hour program full to the brim.

Great opening tag from House of Black VS Premier Athletes with Sterling & Woods of course getting involved, but great win for Malakai & Brody in that 4v2 situation. Still banking on them screwing over The Patriarchy during a Unified World Trios Championship match. The Six Man Tag was really good but not sure it was main event material compared to the Fatal 4 Way. Good stuff for the Six Man Tag, everyone got their shine, but that Fatal 4 Way was just incredible. Great win for Fenix to stay hot while all the titles have stories going into All In, but he could get a shot at like, Okada’s Continental Championship to give us a dream match moment before the PPV.

My Score: 8.8/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Will Ospreay is here!

Calgary fires up for the Aerial Assassin as he makes his way out, International Championship in hand. Ospreay high-fives some fans before he goes into the ring and gets a mic. Ospreay then sits on a corner while the fans cheer him on. “Thank you kindly. So last week, at the end of Dynamite, I’ll be honest with you guys, I was appalled, I was disgusted, but I’ll be honest, I wasn’t surprised. I had heard rumors about MJF.” The fans boo that name, and Ospreay says he’d heard that MJF is one of the most insecure men in pro-wrestling. And he showed it! Cuz a guy like Daniel Garcia earns every opportunity he gets.

And the moment Garcia starts creeping up on MJF’s spot, MJF does whatever it takes to stop it. MJF stand son this second rope, just like Ospreay now, and hits a Tombstone Piledriver. Garcia is still at home with no feeling in his arms and no idea when he’s coming back, if he ever does. And MJF wants to blame the fans? The fans boo that, too. Ospreay says MJF wants to blame the fans for when he opened up to them, spoke about his ADHD. Bruv, Ospreay’s got that, too, but it doesn’t give him an excuse to be a little prick! Listen, alright? Ospreay has only had a few interactions with MJF, and Ospreay already knows MJF doesn’t like him.

Here’s the reasons why. Reason 1: That bidding war of 2024 didn’t go MJF’s way, because Tony Khan would rather spend his money on guys that will elevate AEW rather than bury it! Reason 2: Apparently, Ospreay is a “talentless hack?” Alright, MJF is welcomed to his opinion. But we’re in Canada right now, right? And they are a very well-educated, smart pro-wrestling fans, and Ospreay is pretty sure they can agree that Ospreay has more talent in his left NUT than MJF has in his entire body! The fans cheer that! Some even chant “LEFT NUT! LEFT NUT!” and Ospreay grins.

Ospreay says the main reason MJF doesn’t like him is because Ospreay reminds people what the identity of AEW is meant to be. Ospreay represents the foundation of this place! MJF came swanning back after injury, and he had a tattoo on his calf with “AEW: Bet On Yourself.” But if he was honest, MJF would’ve made that tattoo say, “AEW: All About Myself,” because he is a selfish little prick! If MJF was gonna be honest, he would’ve just said he only cares about himself. And Ospreay has to be honest, he feels like the moment he stepped foot in AEW, he has been cleaning up someone else’s mess, and now he’s found the guy!

But Ospreay respects this. The whole act is MJF is a scumbag. Some cheer it because he’s “their scumbag.” And Ospreay welcomes it! Because that right there is the best version of MJF. It’s been the same crap for about five years, but that’s still the best version of MJF. Ospreay welcomes it, because he wants to show MJF that “the level of the devil” is just the ground floor for Ospreay and he’s on the top floor of a skyscraper, bruv! The fans cheer again, and Ospreay says this time, Ospreay won’t be in England grieving over his nana. He’s here in Calgary, looking for a fight! So if MJF is back there, get on out here so they can handle this!

The fans cheer, and MJF’s music hits! Ospreay is ready, looking up at the ramp. But MJF isn’t coming out? The fans boo but then wait, there’s a tapping on glass. MJF is here via the tron, sipping wine. Not bad. But oh, Ospreay thought MJF was coming out there? No, the people no longer deserve the privilege of being so close to MJF’s greatness. Nor does MJF want to inhale their stench, he deserves better than that. MJF tells “William” that MJF has faced all the favorites the fans thought were top guys, and guess what? They fell beneath his feet. Does Ospreay think he’s different? What Ospreay is, is a joke.

Ospreay is a flavor of the month, MJF is a flavor of the Millennium. And MJF hasn’t had to practically kill himself to get them interested. MJF just had to speak. Ospreay wrestles not for himself but for the fans, he is their little toy monkey. Eventually, they’ll wind Ospreay up, watch him crash the cymbals, and then they’ll realize they’ve seen it all before, and they’ll grow tired of it. And then, they’ll throw him out in the trash, just like they tried to do to MJF. Difference is, MJF is irreplaceable. Ospreay on the other hand… They’ll move on, and call the next flippy guy “The best in the world.”

MJF has only been in this sport for ten years, and he’s seen ten of Ospreay’s type come and go. Great wrestlers are a dime a dozen. Here today, gone tomorrow. MJF is a generational talent. And if Ospreay gets in the ring with MJF, Ospreay will be exposed. So Ospreay wants a match? Ospreay wants MJF tonight? Nope. MJF is not like Ospreay. He doesn’t wrestle for fun or amusement, but for the betterment of AEW. SO here’s a little proposition for Ospreay: Next week, MJF VS Ospreay for the International Championship. That way, for the first time in Ospreay’s career, he won’t be wrestling for stars. MJF will be punching Ospreay until he sees stars.

MJF finishes his wine, having thrown down the gauntlet, but Ospreay smiles. “Adorable. Max, I’ll see you next week, ya little b*tch!” And so the match is made! Will the #BillyGOAT stomp out the Wolf of Wrestling?

 

2024 Men’s Owen Hart Cup Finals: Bryan Danielson VS Hangman Page!

The American Dragon has acknowledged that his final year of full-time wrestling has not been his best, but he vows to finish strong and go out on top. However, The Black Hat has returned with a mean streak deeper and darker than it’s ever been before! Who not only wins this tournament, but wins their golden ticket to the top of the mountain?

Given the animosity Hangman has shown since his return, Tony Khan has called upon Jeff Jarrett to be tonight’s special guest enforcer! Will the Last Outlaw be able to lay down the law if Hangman crosses the line?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Hangman shoves Bryan down, but Bryan gets right up. They feel things out, tie up, and Hangman throws Bryan down by his hair. The ref reprimands but Hangman doesn’t care. Hangman and Bryan tie up again, and Hangman powers Bryan to the corner. Bryan turns things around, lets off slowly, and then tries a kick!

Hangman runs in but Bryan DUMPS him out! Bryan gets moving and he DIVES! Direct hit but both men hit railing! The ref hurries out to check and Bryan is alright. Bryan puts Hangman in, goes up a corner, and MISSILE DROPKICKS!

The fans fire up as Hangman tumbles to a corner! Bryan manages to kip up and the fans fire up! Bryan snarls, runs corner to corner, but into a BOOT! Hangman TOSSES Bryan out, but Bryan stays on the apron. So Hangman triangle jumps, but Bryan gets under the lariat! Hangman BLINDSIDES Bryan, then he POSTS Bryan! Bryan falls to the floor, the ref reprimands, and Hangman has a wild look in his eyes as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Hangman drags himself up with the ropes, goes out after Bryan, and throws hands. Bryan is already busted open from the post, so Hangman is opening that wound more! Hangman drags Bryan up to RAM him into steel steps! Hangman refreshes the ring count, storms over to Bryan. Hangman DRIBBLES Bryan against the side of the steps! Hangman SMACKS Bryan off the steps again and again, then lets off as the ref counts. Hangman soaks up the heat while Bryan sputters. The ref counts, but Hangman drags Bryan up and into the ring. Hangman drags Bryan up just to DECK him with a right!

Bryan flounders, the ref checks on him, but Bryan won’t give up. So Hangman DECKS him again! Bryan goes to ropes again, but Hangman is right on him. Hangman ROCKS Bryan and Bryan goes to a corner. Hangman climbs up the corner to rain down fists! The ref counts, but so do the fans, and Hangman goes all the way to nine, before he flips everyone off! The ref checks on Bryan while Dynamite returns to single picture. Bryan still wants to fight so Hangman BOOTS him! Hangman DIGS his fingers at the bloody forehead but the ref tells him to let off. Hangman steps away, Jarrett is watching closely.

Hangman stands Bryan up to ROCK him! Bryan KICKS back! Hangman ROCKS Bryan, but Bryan KICKS again! The fans fire up but Hangman ROCKS Bryan again! Bryan KICKS, and KICKS, and- NO, Hangman blocks that one to SLEEPER SWING! Then a SLAM, and Hangman stomps a mudhole into Bryan! The fans boo but Hangman lets off. Bryan’s crimson mask grows on that right side of his face, but Hangman looms over him. Bryan crawls to a corner, Hangman stands him up, and Hangman CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! The CHOPS keep going, and then Bryan kneels, so Hangman ROCKS Bryan again!

Bryan sputters, rises up, but Hangman stands him up in the corner. Hangman CHOPS again and again and again! Hangman ROCKS Bryan again, but Bryan huffs ‘n’ puffs. Bryan CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS! Then he UPPERCUTS! And UPPERCUTS! And UPPERCUTS into a backslide! Bryan rolls through to get the ARMBAR! The fans fire up as Hangman flails and reaches out! Bryan shifts around, omoplata! LEBELL LOCK!! Hangman endures, reaches out and has the ROPEBREAK with a leg! Bryan lets go fast, and Jarrett coaches him. Bryan rises and aims to KICK! And KICK! And KICK! But Hangman blocks one!

Hangman fireman’s carries but Bryan fights it with HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Hangman powers through to pop Bryan into a SAIDO! Bryan is folded up and clutches his neck again.

Bryan CHOPS back! Hangman CHOPS again, so Bryan CHOPS again! Hangman CHOPS, Bryan puts Hangman in a corner to CHOP and KICK on repeat!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall (2024 King of Harts)

Hangman is furious with Jarrett but he still got caught by that deep hook! Hangman storms off, what is he to do to satisfy his rage now? As for Bryan, he is going All In! Martha Hart walks out to not only hug Jarrett, but to help him bring the Owen Hart Foundation Championship belt and trophy to the ring. Martha has the mic to say hello to Calgary. It is great to be back in the Saddledome for Stampede Week! And in Owen Hart’s hometown, it is with great pleasure that she awards the Owen Cup to Bryan Danielson. Jarrett brings trophy and belt over, and Bryan holds them up proudly.

Bryan shakes Martha’s hand, and Martha says see you in Wembley Stadium for his AEW World Championship match! The tron graphic makes it official, and then “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The Realest is here to look his next challenger in the eyes! Will Swerve slay the American Dragon in London? Or will Bryan keep his promise to himself to go out on top?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

For the milestone 250TH EPISODE of Dynamite, Ospreay and MJF will have their match! The International Championship will be on the line, all to kick off the show in Little Rock, Arkansas! Who will lead AEW by example when they stand tall as champion?

 

AEW returns and…

Swerve & Nana have the ring to themselves now, and Swerve has a mic. The fans chant, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve says he stood on that stage not more than a week ago, staring down Will Ospreay, looking at that man eye to eye, and you know what Ospreay said? Ospreay said that the best in the world is the one who holds the world championship. And there was a lot of doubt being thrown around, so Swerve had to silence that. Now that Swerve has beat Ospreay, you’re looking at the Best int he World, THE AEW World Champion!

And by the way, congratulations to Bryan Danielson for winning the Men’s Owen Cup. The fans cheer, and Swerve says it will be a true honor and privilege facing Bryan in the main event of All In next month. But… Swerve isn’t over the fact Bryan has that one win over him. And Swerve is someone who holds onto grudges. They are at two different points in their careers now. Bryan’s on the downslide, while Swerve… Well, you could say you’re looking at the most dangerous man in AEW.

“Speaking of which, it wasn’t more than a couple weeks ago that The EVPs, The Elite, had walked down to this ring. (Nana) You were there when that happened, right?” Nana confirms it. The Elite came out here, tried to bribe Swerve with some “Miniature” Reebok pumps, and offered Swerve a spot on their Blood & Guts team. Well, Swerve is here to officially announce that he will be in Blood & Guts. On Team AEW. The fans cheer that! Swerve says he said before, you do not make a Team AEW and do not offer the AEW World Champion a spot. Swerve is gonna lead the team, and not just do one but two things Bryan Danielson could not.

Swerve already beat Will Ospreay, and now he will lead Team AEW in victory against The Elite. And speaking of The Elite, we are now in this Dynasty Era. There were three men appointed the lead of The Dynasty. First, yours truly, Swerve Strickland. Second, the International Champion, Will Ospreay. And third, the Continental Champion, Kazuchika Okada. So then how about we do this? Swerve puts out a challenge to Okada, so that the world champion can show him how to really make it rain. “B*tch.”

So in closing, Swerve will see everyone at All In. And Bryan, this Swerve firmly promises you: “This will be your final countdown.” WHOSE HOUSE!? “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The Mogul is making big moves, but will he have enough ammo in the arsenal to take down all his targets?

 

The Acclaimed present: Two Times!

That’s right, a brand new music video from Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass! Platinum says, “I’mma beat the Young Bucks two times~. Tag champs going on two times~. Young Bucks just a couple two times~. I’mma push them back like their hairline~. (Oh snap!) I’mma turn them into a headline, I’mma turn a couple fake boys into a True Crime! Splatter on the mat, hang ’em up in the Guggenheim. I’m so artsy, they can’t even draw a dime. Hit ’em with a Mic drop, Brown boys, white hot. Black eyes all up on your face, that’s a bright spot.

“You some little guys, I’mma hit you with the kibosh. Crime scene, looking photogenic like you Chris Bosh. Can’t even walk a mile in my path, you in sneakers. Read the news in the dirt sheet, who the leakers? Young Bucks talk a big game, can’t answer a question. Matthew & Nicholas, the cancer o’ wrestlin’. Knocking on my office door, you can get to yappin’. History repeats itself and we can see what happens. I’ll wipe your nose, someone get me a napkin. We beat ’em last month, now we need a reenactment.

“I’mma beat the Young Bucks two times~. Tag champs going on two times~. Young Bucks just a couple two times~. I’mma push them back like their hairline~. (Oh snap!) What’s the point of time? All of us are unsigned. Strugglin’ to make it, put it all on the line. Y’all had a chance to improve on the game, had to go away when you found you couldn’t hang. When it first started, it was all great. Now you went and turned into the things that you hate. Wearing cheap suits, wanna flash it, control. You ain’t for the boys, you ain’t passin’ the code. Rainmaker only came here for the money. Bring in Jack Perry, are you tryin’ to be funny?

“And you got a job for your family and boys, but what about your friends that are still unemployed? You don’t really talk about them, but we does. Hung Bucks, your kids walk back to Reseda. Y’all had a chance to improve on the sport. Fast-forward five years, now Acclaimed got the torch.” And with that torch, Platinum has just roasted Matthew & Nicholas! Will Caster & Bowens be looking to go All In with The Elite?

 

Stampede Street Fight: Samoa Joe VS Chris Jericho!

The Samoan Submission Specialist asked The Learning Tree if he still had faith in humanity. Joe wants to know if Jericho thinks anything of his fellow man with how he throws around his condescending advice. And Joe really wants to know if Jericho actually thinks anyone will come to his rescue when Joe is tearing the Learning Tree apart, limb by limb! It is time to conduct such an experiment under extreme conditions, will Jericho even survive the Stampede?

The Bad Apple, Bryan Keith, is by Jericho’s side. Jericho waves to the fans but Joe doesn’t look away from The “For the World” Champion. The bell rings, the fans rally for Joe, and the two stare down. Jericho talks a little trash, but then Joe snatches the cowboy hat away. Jericho says don’t do anything to that hat, that’s his hat. Joe says okay, okay. Joe PUNCHES Jericho through the hat! Joe then JABS away on Jericho in the corner! Then he RIDGE HANDS Jericho down! Jericho sputters up to his feet but Joe HEADBUTTS!

Jericho drops to his knees, but Joe stands him up to ROCK him and JAB him and HEADBUTT him! Jericho CLAWS the eyes! The Bad Apple applauds but the fans boo. Jericho ROCKS Joe, CHOPS him, then CHOPS again. Jericho CHOPS then whips, but Joe ducks ‘n’ dodges to DIVE onto Keith! Joe is not taking any chances, he TOSSES Keith into the crowd! The fans fire up as Joe goes back to the ring. Jericho hits Joe with a dropkick, CLUBS him, then drags him up to whip him hard into railing! Jericho JAMS Joe up with a chair, then shows it off. The fans are torn, and Jericho SMACKS Joe on the back!

Jericho drags Joe up, puts him in the ring, and then hurries to bring stuff out from under the ring. Jericho has found a black bag! Jericho BOOTS Joe, then holds up the bag. Jericho pours out HORSESHOES! The fans fire up seeing those, and Jericho reels Joe in. But Joe is too bulky to back suplex! Joe CLUBS Jericho, fires off KNEE after KNEE, then he runs, only for Jericho to kick low! Jericho runs, but into a scoop! Joe POWERBOMBS Jericho onto the horseshoes! Jericho writhes, Joe runs to SENTON! The fans lose their minds, Joe covers, TWO!! Jericho survives, Joe drags Jericho up and KICKS him around!

Joe KICKS and KICKS, but Jericho blocks to LOW BLOW! Because No Disqualifications means who cares about respect, right? Jericho then gets the legs, and he turns Joe over for the WALLS OF JERICHO! Joe endures, the fans rally up, and Dynamite goes picture in picture!

Joe reaches out, but Jericho sits deep on the hold. Joe still fights around, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! But again, a Street Fight means No Disqualifications, so Jericho doesn’t have to let go! Jericho drags Joe back from ropes and he sits deep again! Joe still endures, still claws around, but Jericho still keeps him down. Joe grits his teeth, the fans rally, and Joe pushes up! Dynamite returns to single picture as Joe powers his way to turn over, and he CLOCKS Jericho with a horseshoe! Jericho falls back, Joe is free, and both men slowly rise. Jericho snarls and tells Joe to get up. Joe does, and he JABS! JABS! JABS! And then ROLLING ELBOW!

Joe puts Jericho up top, tucks him in, but Jericho fights free! Jericho leaps to MISSILE DROPKICK! Jericho waves to the fans but they boo. Joe goes to the outside, Jericho goes to the apron, and Jericho LEAPS, but Joe just walks away! Jericho SMACKS off the steel steps! The fans fire up as Joe drags Jericho up to TOSS over railing! The fans fire up more as now they’re fighting in the crowd! Joe drags Jericho up the bleachers, HAMMERS away on him, and then Joe brings Jericho back around to SMACK him off the barriers! Those are hockey boards! Joe fires hands, then a fan lends him some popcorn! Joe SMASHES Jericho with the popcorn!

This fight now goes backstage and Joe keeps Jericho moving with fast hands! Joe pulls Jericho along by his hair, sends him into spare railing, then CHOPS him! And ROCKS him! We’re by catering and Joe ROCKS Jericho! Jericho SPLASHES Joe with coffee! And it was piping hot! JUDAS- NO, Joe catches Jericho to a COQUINA CLUTCH! Joe brings Jericho to his knees, but NOW Big Bill appears! And The Redwood SMACKS Joe with a chair! Joe lets Jericho go and Bill SMACKS Joe off the back of a forklift! Then Keith returns and the Branches beat down on Joe! Jericho says stand Joe up! They do as told, and Jericho takes off his own belt.

Jericho wraps his fist in the leather, has the buckle prepared, and he thanks Martha Hart for giving him the belt! BELT BUCKLE KNUCKLE DUSTER!! Joe gets hit right in the head, and then Bill CHOKE SLAMS Joe onto the pallet! Bill HAMMERS away on Joe, then Jericho gets in the seat of the forklift! Staff tells Jericho no but Keith THROWS them aside! Jericho powers up the forklift, and he is bringing Joe around. Jericho says, “Hi, guys~!” Jericho RUNS JOE THROUGH A WALL!!! Bill is laughing while staff, refs, Doc Sampson and even Colt Cabana run over! Cabana asks what the hell Jericho is doing! Doc Sampson calls it! Joe is OUT, Jericho wins!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by stoppage

The Learning Tree grins, and asks how “Samoa Joke” feels now. If this is what Jericho is willing to do to spread his “teachings” to AEW, what won’t he do #ForTheWorld?

 

AEW returns and…

The medical team has Samoa Joe on a stretcher and is now getting him inside an ambulance. Sampson tells Joe that they’ve got him. Joe is conscious, but what is his condition after Jericho- Wait, what are Jericho and his sidekicks even doing here? Jericho smiles and waves, “Bye, Joe. Bye bye. Thanks.” Has the Learning Tree finally snapped?

Winner: Pac, by submission (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW International Champion)

The Bastard breaks The Protostar and he has all the Global Glory! Pac gets the mic, and he says, “Safe to say, things have not been going well for me recently. Since returning to AEW in March, I have made many bold promises. And I have suffered many humiliating failures. Now I don’t know what I’m gonna do next, ya see. But what i do know is this: It’s All In Season! And The Bastard will not be denied my Wembley moment! I can promise you that. So let tonight’s victory stand as a line in the sand…! The Bastard will be back.” Pac has put Ospreay and MJF on notice, will it be The Aerial Assassin or The Wolf of Wrestling that faces him next?

 

AEW goes backstage with Renee Paquette.

She is on her way to interview Bryan Danielson, who has won the Men’s Owen Hart Tournament to move on to Wembley. But then Hangman Page pushes past her and she tries to get his attention. She has to shout at him, and asks if she could get just a little bit of respect around here, it’d be appreciated. Hangman knocks on a door without a word to Renee. Renee leaves, and the person that opens the door is Okada. Okada asks if he can help Hangman. Hangman wants to go inside, but Okada stops him, and asks again, “Can I help you?” The Bucks then walk up and say it is all okay. But fancy seeing Hangman here. Anything they can do for him?

Hangman says he’ll do it. Hangman then leaves, and Okada asks if The Bucks are okay. Now they are! They just got their fifth man! Will The Black Hat help The Elite win Blood & Guts against Team AEW?

 

Mercedes Mone is here!

Calgary is torn about The CEO walking out here, wearing the TBS Championship but holding the NJPW Strong Women’s Championship on her shoulder. She celebrated her Forbidden Door victory last week, but it seems the Two Belt Boss needs double the fun. She struts her way to the ring, security ready at all corners, and there’s already a table and a bottle waiting for her. Mone puts her NJPW Strong belt on the stand, then picks up the mic. “Calgaryyyy~! Please say hello to your C E O!”T he fans are still torn but Mone is so honored to be here to celebrate her historic double championship victory.

And huge shoutout to her boys, The EVPs, Matthew & Nicholas Jackson, for the extra security. Because if there’s one thing for sure, Mone will NOT be interrupted. Before we start, Mone wants to set the record straight about the past, present and future. Because these two titles and everyone here knows, she is the past, present AND future! Mone is the best their was, the best there is, and the best there ever will be! The fans boo her stealing the Hitman’s line. Then Mone says as far as Britt Baker goes, she better wake up from her little fantasy about facing Mone at All In. That is NOT going to happen.

Because if Britt did face Mone in the ring, Mone would leave her with way more than a couple herniated disks. She would leave Britt for dead! So everyone, it is time to grab your glasses, pour a little whiskey, and raise a toast to the Greatest of All Time, the History Maker, the Star Marker, the- D M D! The fans fire up but Mone is pissed that Britt is daring to interrupt after all! Mone tells security to get her, but Britt DECKS the first guy! And SUPERKICKS the second! Mone panics as Britt just pushes past the rest! Mone grabs her belts and runs as best she can in heels! Mone says this was HER moment, but now she knows how it feels!

Britt smiles but Mone says there will be a price to pay. Will nothing stop the DMD from going after the CEO over both the TBS and NJPW Strong titles?

 

Brandon Cutler’s been attacked backstage!

And his face has been painted with a very familiar half-skull! That’s because it’s DARBY ALLIN who got him! Cutler begs for mercy but Darby just rains down more fists! Darby then gets in the camera to ask Jack Perry, “What’s that ish you say? We all have to make sacrifices, huh? Brandon just made his. Elite, you really thought this was over? Dynamite 250, we’re just getting started.” The Relentless One leaves, but will he get his payback from Double Or Nothing?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite 250!

My Thoughts:

Now this was an awesome episode of Dynamite. Only four matches because these were the only four we needed, as well as great promos, all with story build. Opening with Ospreay and MJF having their promos was the smart move, and it sets up a great title match for next week. I did not realize we’d already gotten to 250 but I suppose after five years, we were gonna get there. And Ospreay VS MJF is going to be great stuff, and I can’t really be sure who wins. The Global Glory Fatal 4 was awesome stuff, and naturally the winner is now a contender to the International Championship. Pac winning out is great, and I’d love if it was Pac VS Ospreay. Two British wrestlers fighting it out, the crowd would eat that up.

That Street Fight was great stuff. I appreciate Jericho bringing out location appropriate weapons in the black bag. And given this is Calgary Stampede, aka a rodeo, horseshoes was perfect. But of course Morrissey & Keith got involved, especially once things went backstage. No Hook, apparently Shibata wasn’t able/allowed to be there, and same for Taz I think, so Joe was all alone. I NEVER would’ve imagined Jericho driving a forklift through a wall to win a match, but here we are. I feel like this just helps Joe and Hook pull off that “miraculous return” in time to give us a huge Six Man Tag for All In.

Very good promo stuff from Mercedes Mone and Britt Baker, mostly because they had Britt run out there to run Mone off. Mone continues to embrace being a Heel that is tangentially connected to The Elite. And while Mone keeps saying no, Britt is going to keep going after her, and I think Tony Khan or Kenny Omega is gonna use their authority to make it official. It probably will be for both belts, and I’m pretty sure Mone retains. She can cheat to do it so that builds Heel heat while not really hurting Britt Baker’s return. Britt can even demand and get a rematch at All Out, which isn’t even two weeks after All In.

Another great music video from Acclaimed but I feel like they need to start putting subtitles, I could not be sure what Caster was saying at some points because he’s just that clever. But obviously, this is all building to A) tag title match at All In and B) Acclaimed wanting to be in on Blood & Guts. For that matter, Darby Allin returning and calling Jack Perry out, that itself is a two-for-one build. Perry VS Allin for the TNT Championship can be a match for All In, and Allin can be the fifth man for Team AEW. Swerve of course wanted to be the team leader for Team AEW, that’s good continuity from before. And then with Hangman losing out on the Owen Hart Cup, and hearing Swerve is part of Blood & Guts, great move for that to convince him to side with The Elite.

Speaking of which, what an awesome Men’s Owen Hart Cup match. With how Swerve is champ, it was really surprising that Hangman lost, but they did such a good job pulling it off. Bryan got bloodied, his neck was bothering him since minute one, and yet he pulls out the win with some help from Jeff Jarrett. Swerve VS Bryan is going to be awesome stuff, and Bryan has been saying he wants to retire world champion, so this could be a make or break moment for that. Then the Women’s Owen Hart Cup was equally amazing. The ring gear being tributes to both Bret & Owen was good stuff, and then to protect Willow’s loss, Stoke & Kris got involved to perhaps set up that final grudge match.

And that ending moment… Way back when she first buddied up to Toni, I sensed Mariah was going to pull something like this. It felt like she was being disingenuous on some level, and I thought it was going to be sooner, because AEW doesn’t always handle pacing in stories well, especially in women’s division story. But just as I thought they weren’t going to do it after Mariah, Mina & Storm all celebrated at Forbidden Door, they have Mariah just absolutely shock everyone. Especially with how bloody she made Storm. This immediately cranks the heat up all the way to the max, and even as soon as Collision on Saturday, we could get the “Why Mariah Why” promo for the explanation.

My Score: 9/10
