My Thoughts:

A very good Dark, only 12 matches and just over 90 minutes is much more manageable than those extra stuffed episodes with 15+ and another hour. There were also some slightly less unpredictable matches, such as Red Velvet VS Leva Bates. Both of them have been doing good work, but Velvet having a small part in the story of Jade Cargill, the Vicious Vixens and Brandi Rhodes means she needs the momentum as a proxy for Brandi. The main event of Top Flight and Chaos Project could’ve gone either way, but the younger team needed the momentum so it was great for them to win over the more experienced Luther and Serpentico. Top Flight using that boosted dropkick Cheeky Nandos is an interesting move, but I think if they coordinate it better, it should be the legal man whipping the other so that he can also be the one to cover as the opponent falls back.

On the other end of things, it was great to see Bear Country get a win through Dark, they’re a great team that can build up the already stacked tag division. The Dark Order had a very good night again, and that 10 Man was pretty congested. Cabana is meshing with the Dark Order more, and so I hope some part of the story originally intended with him is given television time. Not to move on too quickly from Mr. Brodie Lee, but if Uno and Stu can move up as leaders and then make Cabana a new right hand man, I think that’d be good for the group as things go forward.

Conti gets a good win over the incoming Marti Daniels, and Deeb gets the same off Tesha Price, but even without these matches, I’m pretty sure their title match is going to be very good with a lot of technical skill on display. Speaking of Price, who was her sidekick and why did she not get an entrance? That’s a bit weird when it wouldn’t have taken that much to add that to Dark’s runtime. Maybe something happened to the footage at the time and they couldn’t shoot it again? Maybe we’ll learn who the guy is next time. And I like that Avalon is building the story of his Pageant Provocation by snubbing Griff and acknowledging Johnson. No idea where this will lead Avalon but it seems like the journey will be fun.

My Score: 8.2/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns are here, and these #CollisionCowboys are looking to keep up their momentum as AEW heads for Wembley. Will the Unified World Trios Champions be more than ready to go All In?

Juice powers up and out, tags Colten, and then Colten tags Austin. Bang Bang Gang hit a body shot, KNEE LIFT, and LARIAT! Juice adds a SENTON, then Colten SPINNING SPLASHES!

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?

 

AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender tot he ROH World Championship)

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”

 

Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Ava. The two tie up, Nyla waistlocks but Ava fires elbows. Ava is free, she fires more shots, then winds up to ROCK Nyla!

Nyla fires up, reels Ava back in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Ring rust is not a thing with Nyla Rose, and she barely broke a sweat here. Will The Native Beast make ever women’s champion in AEW and ROH her prey?

 

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

Darius ROCKS Ogogo, fights off Lee, but Ogogo reels Darius in through the ropes!

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots. Skye ROCKS Harley again, but Harley ducks ‘n’ dodge! DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both! The fans fire up and Cassidy puts Bennett in. Cassidy goes up top, Bennett gets under the jump. Bennett headlocks, Cassidy powers up and out, but Bennett runs him over.

And whips, to then kitchen sink knee! Bennett sputters, Taven runs in, but Kyle blocks the kick!

Taven apologizes and says he still doesn’t wanna fight. But then he pokes Kyle in the eyes! Taven says that is why he doesn’t wanna do this. But Cassidy runs in to tilt-o-whirl. Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett talks smack on Cassidy, goes to the ring, but Kyle catches him for a SLEEPER! Bennett JAWBREAKERS free, then waistlocks. Kyle switches, hops on, SLEEPER BACKPACK! Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS! Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

Bennett stays between Cassidy and Kyle, mocks the hands in pockets, then stomps Cassidy. Roddy is having fun now as Bennett whips Cassidy to ropes. Bennett ELBOWS Cassidy down, covers, TWO! Bennett clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Cassidy down. Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, then fires body shots. Bennett ROCKS Cassidy, tags Taven, and The Kingdom mugs Cassidy as Collision returns to single picture. But then Cassidy starts fighting back! The fans fire up as but Taven knees low. The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then whips him to ropes. POP-UP BAYONET! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

BEACH BREAK for Bennett! Cover, TWO!! Bennett survives and Roddy can’t take it! Roddy hurries to ringside but Cassidy tags Kyle. Cassidy and Kyle watch Bennett get up, but Roddy shouts at “KYYYLE~!”

Roddy tells Kyle he can’t do this to their friends! Kyle says Roddy needs to just back off. The ref tells Roddy to stop, but here’s Ishii!! Ishii YANKS Roddy down, he fires off hands! The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10

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?

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
