PLAY BY PLAY

The Dark Order is here!

It’s a huge birthday bash for Negative One, Brodie Lee Junior! The cake is there, the candles are lit, and fans cheer on, “Happy Birthday!” John Silver says tonight is a very special night and fans cheer in agreement. Firstly, the Dark Order is going to get a new recruit in “a handsome cowboy,” Hangman Page! But second of all, it’s someone’s birthday~! Just looking t this cake is making #JohnnyHungy! But let’s all sing a Happy Birthday to Brodie Junior! A one, a two, a skiddily diddily doo! Happy Birthday to You~! But then Luther and Serpentico crash the party! They don’t care about birthdays! AEW is becoming a DAYCARE CENTER!

Luther tells “Punky Brewster,” if he wants to come out on AEW Dark and talk smack on him and how he looks stupid with the ball on his head…! Fans chant “You Look Stupid!” Well first, Luther’s face is perfectly symmetrical! And second, Negative One has all these halfwits in masks and with their jagged teeth, THEY look stupid! Chaos Project does not like kids, and does not like them! They’re going to RUIN Brodie’s birthday! The Dark Order fires back with fists! But Jack Evans and Angelico hurry out to reinforce their tag partners! Here comes Hangman! Hangman LEAPS off the stage and onto everyone! The Dark Order cheers, but is Hangman really joining up with them?

8 Man Tag: Hangman & The Dark Order VS Chaos Project & The Hybrid2!

The bell rings and Silver stalks Angelico in the ring. Alex Reynolds joins in, they double whip and flapjack EUROUPPER! Cover, but Evans breaks it in time! Silver throws forearms on Evans and hits him so hard, Evans flies out of the ring! But Angelico DECKS Silver, then tags in Luther. They mug Silver, Luther reels Silver in for a butterfly suplex! Cover, ONE! Luther tags Serpentico in, and he is the SNAKEMAN weapon, scoop slam senton! Serpentico staggers up, tags Evans, and then Luther uses Evans as a weapon for another scoop slam senton! Tag to Angelico, and Angelico holds Silver there, for Luther to BULLDOG SPLASH Angelico onto him! Cover, TWO!

Angelico drags Silver up, bumps him off buckles, then tags Serpentico in. Serpentico throws hands on Silver, snapmares and KICKS him! Fans rally as Serpentico fish hooks Silver into a chinlock. Silver endures, the ref reprimands the hooks but Silver fights up to throw body shots. Serpentico throws haymakers back and then has Silver in a corner. Serpentico whips corner to corner and Silver hits buckles. Serpentico runs in but Silver FLAPJACKS him to buckles! Serpentico fixes his head but runs into a BOOT! Tag to Hangman! Hangman rallies on Chaos Project and TH2 with forearms and BOOTS! SPINEBUSTER for Evans!

Fans fire up with Hangman as he runs at Angelico to corner clothesline! Then one for Serpentico, one for Evans, then back to Serpentico. Serpentico SUPERKICKS, but he leaps into an OVERHEAD SUPLEX! Cover, but TH2 breaks it! Now a brawl breaks out again! The Dark Order throws TH2 out, Silver whips Reynolds in at Serpentico but Serpentico tosses him out! Silver runs in, but Serpentico puts him on the apron. Colt Cabana runs in but Serpentico avoids the Flying Apple. Cabana goes up, Hangman ROLLING ELBOWS Serpentico into Cabana’s FLYING ELBOW! Cabana sees Angelico getting in, and suckers him into Hangman’s FALL AWAY SLAM!

Hangman kips up and PLANCHAS but Evans moves! Evans is on the apron, but Hangman avoids his spinning kick! Silver is on the apron now and CANNONBALLS into Evans, to then EuroUpper Angelico against railing! Silver runs at Chaos Project but they dodge, only for Reynolds to FLY in! Direct hit, and the Dark Order set things up for Hangman, SUPER MOONSAULT! Fans are thunderous as Hangman drags Serpentico up and into the ring. Hangman tags Cabana in, Cabana scoop slams Serpentico, and then the Good, the Bad and the Hungy combine in a HUGE backpack SENTON! Cover, TWO!! Serpentico survives but Cabana keeps his focus.

Tag to Reynolds, Cabana goes up and the Beaver Boys hoist Serpentico up. Luther gets in and shoves Cabana down! Serpentico shoves Reynolds into Silver, roll through, SUPERKICK and basement DDT! Evans springboards in with the 450 SPLASH! Cover but Hangman breaks it in time! Evans throws Hangman out, then slingshots after him, into a POWEBOMB onto Angelico in the crowd! Luther drags Cabana up the ramp and to the stage! Oh no, the cake is unguarded! Wait, Negative One runs over and SMACKS Luther with the kendo stick! Luther glares at him, but then Cabana FLAPJACKS Luther onto the cake!

Back in the ring, Reynolds whips Serpentico into the corner, Silver ENZIGURIS, then they unleash the Beaver Boy Blitz! Forearm, enziguri, STUNNER, and Hangman adds the BUCK SHOT to the GERMAN! Bridging and jackknife, Hangman and the Dark Order win!

Winners: Hangman Page & The Dark Order, by pinfall

Luther is furious in the frosting as the Good, the Bad, the Hungy and the BOOM BOOM take the win! And to add on, Negative One says Serpentico tried to ruin the birthday. But that’s not how it works. KENDO STICK SMACK! “My birthday was three days ago, you idiots!” And he throws papers at Chaos Project! But Silver grabs a mic to address business. Hangman is so good and amazing! But also, he’s really handsome and has nice hair. Now, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Will Hangman #JoinDarkOrder? Silver is even on bended knee! Hangman’s answer is…? “I can’t.”

Wait what? No, stop the confetti! He said no! He said no! The Dark Order didn’t hear that until it’s pointed out by Hangman. As fun as all this has been, he tried saying this before but he was put in a tough spot. Hangman’s done the faction thing before, and it didn’t really work out for him. He’s sorry, but he has to decline. The Dark Order doesn’t understand, and now the good mood has been deflated. Will the Dark Order figure out how to get Hangman to change his mind? Or will they have to move on from this rejection and find someone else?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho and MJF!

Ahead of the Inner Circle Tag Team Challenge, Alex Marvez wants their thoughts. Please stop, your breath is worse than a rat orgy inside a running microwave. But MJF wants to be honest with Jericho. The last thing he wants to see is this match breaking up the Inner Circle. Isn’t Jericho a little worried about that? Jericho is NOT worried. Tonight will be something that brings the group together and stronger than ever before. It is a promise, a pact, a gentlemen’s agreement of sexy hooligans to decide which combination moves forward to go after the AEW World Tag Team Championships!

No matter what happens, they have a deal that they will move on as a unit. Santana & Ortiz VS Sammy & Hager VS Jericho & MJF! And guess who wins tonight, Marvez! Jericho? Exactly, you stupid idiot! MJF agrees with Jericho, this will make the Inner Circle stronger. They are Christopher and Maxwell, they are better than you and you know it, because they are the next AEW World Tag Team Champions! But will that be the case when this is their first outing as a tag team?

 

AEW returns to Tony Schiavone in the ring!

“It was one week ago in this ring that Darby Allin retained the TNT Championship in a sensational win over Brian Cage of Team Taz!” We also saw Sting show up to help Darby out against Team Taz, too! Sting wants to say something, perhaps congratulate Darby, so here is… STIIIIING~! The snow, the crow, and the icon! And now, the TNT Champion, Darby Allin! The Relentless Face of TNT makes his way out with belt in hand. He joins Schiavone and Sting in the ring and fans cheer. Schiavone hands the mic to Sting and Sting says, “First of all, I want to say that there’s something that reminds me about me in you, and I kinda like it.” Darby is a great wrestler, and Sting wants to be the first to publicly congratulate him as being our TNT Champion.

Second, Sting wants everyone to understand that he wasn’t here to interrupt last week. He just wanted to keep things fair as Darby defended his title. But from somewhere, Taz is on the mic and he’s telling Sting to shut up! Team Taz is on the titantron and Taz says “fair fight, my ass!” Sting had a baseball bat, he storms out during the TNT title match, and he attacks Ricky Starks! Darby, during that match, had his leather belt and tried to hogtie Cage’s legs like he’s some piece of cattle! They fight dirty! They fight street style! Team Taz are “gentlemen.” Taz grew up in the streets, do your homework! These men are street fighters!

Starks speaks and says if we’re talking about street fighters, here’s the thing! Sting and Darby couldn’t see them in the streets! The deal is, Team Taz should take this to the streets! If Darby and Sting want to get nasty, they want to get hardcore, then the ball’s in their court! What you got?! Darby looks to Sting and Sting says something to Darby. Darby takes the mic and says if Team Taz wants to take this to the streets, “be careful what you wish for, because it just might happen.” Will Taz and team regret trying to intimidate these two fearless fighters?

 

The Elite is having a meeting, but the Young Bucks aren’t part of it?

Alex Marvez tells Matt & Nick Jackson about it, which is weird because this is Kenny Omega’s place. First that eBay collector guy and now this? Well fine, Marvez, come with them to the meeting. The Bucks walks in through the backdoor and Michael Nakazawa is being the greeter? Nakazawa escorts the Bucks into the dining room then into the den. What in the world? Omega has an oil painting of himself and Don Callis as muscular men in denim jeans, and only denim jeans. Omega is one thing but Callis is nowhere NEAR that ripped. Yikes.

But Callis enters first, and says that is a gift for Omega’s birthday. But his birthday’s in October. Well it’s never too early or too late to shop for the God of Pro-Wrestling! Have they not gotten anything for him yet? What kind of friends are you? Just kidding. Oh right, just like how last week, he punked them out on national television with that bait ‘n’ switch! Callis says that it was a choice from production, he meant to tell them but he apologizes for that. Where is Omega? Well Omega is unavailable for today’s meeting. At his own house? Omega is very busy. Too busy to talk to his friends?

Well what number do they have in their phones? Callis had Omega change numbers a couple weeks ago, there are a lot of fans, marks, and “old friends” coming out of the woodwork, blowing up the phone. They didn’t get the memo? Well they don’t need it, they can always come by, he and Omega are always happy to see them. But it’s good that they’re all here so we can clear the air. These three are the ones who love Omega the most, after all. Callis is family, and the Bucks are… old friends. So let’s chat. Marvez, why are you here? Nakazawa, please escort Marvez to the dungeon. What? Not a real dungeon, just the training room Omega uses. And take the cameraman. Not the camera, though, Callis won’t let him shoot any more of Omega’s house. Off to the dungeon with them.

And now they have privacy! The Bucks are good, right? How long have they known Omega? 12 years. Wow, 12 years, a tremendous investment. They need to recognize that. But everyone’s very busy, no time to spend like they used to, so Callis has something he is sure they’ll like. Is he writing them a check? Callis says this will compensate them for their investment in the friendship. They’re just trying to keep contact with the “old crew” to a minimum. Wow, see, this would be a good amount, except the Bucks made that much just last week. Oh, right, the merch! Well here, Callis will add in some. Is this a bribe? No…!

THE AUDACITY to think you can buyout a 12 year FRIENDSHIP…! Callis wasn’t on those 14 hour bus rides in Tokyo! He wasn’t there for the missed birthdays and anniversaries! Where was “Uncle Creepy” Callis? Callis says he was always there. Sorry it’s gone this way, but if you want to talk facts, the Bucks were great friends to Omega, but now they just hold him back! Oh really?! Yes, the hanger-on from the old neighborhood types. Omega is too nice but Callis isn’t.

Y’know, speaking of where this money is coming from, the Bucks used to work at that company Callis is VP of. And so they know these checks are no good. They rip up the checks and Callis accuses them of being bloodsuckers! Oh THEY are the bloodsuckers?! Callis is manipulating Omega! They’re backing Callis up and scaring him a bit, and the camera gets shut off. What is going to happen to The Elite with Callis hanging around?

 

Cody Rhodes w/ Arn Anderson VS “Pretty” Peter Avalon!

Does the American Nightmare match up with the requirements for the Pageant Provocation? Perhaps, but will Avalon consider giving Cody a pass? Will Avalon’s young win streak be ended his first night back on Dynamite?

The bell rings and Avalon rushes at Cody, but into a dragon sleeper! CROSS RHODES!! Cody would cover, but JADE CARGILL walks out on stage! She is keeping her distance, but Cody isn’t so sure. Avalon runs in and LOW BLOWS Cody during the distraction! Jade likes that and decides to leave now. Avalon kicks at Cody’s legs, stalks Cody around the ring and chop blocks him down! Avalon trips Cody up, stomps him down, and then drags Cody up to throw haymakers! Avalon CHOPS Cody, then CHPOS him again! Cody gets made and CHOPS back! Cody shows haymaker but Avalon protects his face. So Cody drops for the Rhodes Uppercut!

Cody goes to a corner, climbs up, but Avalon hits him first! Avalon throws hands, climbs up, and clubs away. Avalon brings Cody up for a SUPERPLEX! Fans fire up as both men writhe and a standing count begins! Cody goes to the apron and Avalon pursues as fans rally behind him. Avalon hobbles after Cody and kicks a leg, but Cody throws Avalon into the railing! Cody throws haymakers, but hobbles into a throat chop! Avalon CHOPS Cody then puts him in the ring. Cody gets Avalon’s leg but Avalon clubs him. Avalon suplexes and covers, ONE! Avalon stomps Cody then clubs him more. Cody shoves Avalon and double clotheslines collide!

Another standing count begins as both men are down. Fans rally up and duel, Cody drags Avalon up but Avalon rakes the eyes! AEW goes to picture in picture as Avalon puts Cody in a corner.

Avalon CHOPS Cody again, CLUBS him, then stomps the leg. Avalon CLAWS Cody on the back, but Cody CLAWS Avalon on the front! Avalon stomps Cody down, then drops a knee! Avalon has the leg and yanks on it, then stomps and heel hooks it! Cody endures but Avalon turns him over for a Half Crab! Avalon pulls hard but Cody fights his way to the ropebreak! The ref counts, Avalon lets off at 3, and Cody trips Avalon up! Cody gets the leg now, but Avalon kicks him away! Cody staggers, Avalon CHOPS him, then wraps the leg against ropes! The ref counts, Cody elbows Avalon away, then gets to the apron. Avalon is after Cody with a stretch against the ropes!

Avalon lets Cody go to club him again, but Cody ROCKS him with forearms! Cody slingshots to sunset flip, TWO! Avalon CLOBBERS Cody with a clothesline! Avalon looms over Cody, drags him up, and scoops him for a slam! Avalon rains down rights, then scrapes his soles off Cody’s face! Avalon sits Cody up to KICK him, then drops more knees! AEW returns to single picture as Avalon climbs. Avalon MOONSAULTS but FLOPS as Cody moves! Fans fire up and Cody throws forearms. Avalon headlocks, Cody powers out and tries to hurdle but his leg can’t get him up! Cody and Avalon collide, then Avalon throws Cody out hard! Avalon runs and DIVES, and Cody ends up in the crowd!

Avalon drags Cody back into the ring, drags him up by his weight belt, and blows a kiss. Avalon runs, into a CUTTER! Cody fires up and fans fire up with him as he whips Avalon, then follows to rally with forearms and lariats! Cody whips, Avalon reverses but Cody goes up and over to SPINNING POWERSLAM! Cody slaps himself to get back in this, and off comes the weight belt! Free souvenir! Avalon staggers, Cody trips him up and steps through, FIGURE FOUR! Avalon endures, turns things over and puts the pressure onto Cody! Cody turns it back over and Avalon feels the pain, but then Avalon SLAPS Cody! That was a mistake and Cody shows slap, but Avalon taps out just to avoid it!

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by submission

Cody holds on to make Avalon pay for it, but lets him go soon enough. Cargill’s presence almost cost Cody, but the Prince of Pro-Wrestling managed to fight through the pain. Will Cody have to be more careful from now on?

 

FTR speaks.

Tully Blanchard knows the rankings just came out. They are NUMBER ONE and that is where they need to be. But now, they need the belts. Those are the bragging rights! But then in barges Jurassic Express! Jungle Boy says he’s sick of this. If FTR is the best- Cash Wheeler says they ARE the best. JB gets heated, but he says the FTR might be the best. Being in there taught JB something about himself. It showed him that he could beat either one of them. FTR laughs at that and Dax Harwood says he shouldn’t be fooled by the “salt ‘n’ pepper.” Dax isn’t some fly-by-night wrassler JB plays with in the ring. Dax will fight him next week, 1v1. He doesn’t need Cash and Tully to win, either.

Oh is that so? Let Dax finish. Then let them all be ringside, but Luchasaurus will make sure no one gets involved. JB and Dax shake on it, but will this really be a gentlemen’s agreement with Tully lurking?

 

Jon Moxley VS ???

The Maniac is back in action tonight, determined to fight his way back to the AEW World Championship and his revenge on Kenny Omega! Will Moxley show that there’s no stopping him, only delaying the inevitable?

AEW returns and Moxley’s opponent turns out to be the Freak Beast Wrecking Ball, Nick Comoroto! A big opponent for his first match back, but Moxley doesn’t back down from a fight! The bell rings, Comoroto shoves but Moxley headbutts him! Moxley fires off forearms and stomps Comoroto in the corner! Then CHOPS him, and CHOPS him again! And again! Moxley whips corner to corner, Comoroto reverses but Moxley dodges in the corner to clothesline! Moxley keeps moving, but leaps into Comoroto’s arms and a POWERSLAM! Comoroto drags Moxley up to elbow him to a corner, then stomps him in return! Comoroto digs his knee in but lets up at 4.

Comoroto whips Moxley corner to corner, then hits a big back elbow! Comoroto scoops Moxley for a BACKBREAKER! Moxley sits up but Comoroto drags him up for another BACKBREAKER, and makes it a bend across his knee! Moxley endures, pries the fingers and bends them back! Comoroto lets go to clutch his hand, and Moxley BITES Comoroto’s forehead! Comoroto knees low, scoops Moxley but Moxley slips out to throw forearms! Comoroto throws them back but Moxley knees then runs, but into an USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up as Moxley goes to a corner. Comoroto runs corner to corner, but only gets buckles!

Moxley and Comoroto are both down but fans rally up! Moxley is up first, and KICKS away on Comoroto’s chest! Again and again, then he reels Comoroto in for a suplex. Comoroto is too big, he shoves Moxley away but Moxley gets around to waistlock, shove and GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Moxley runs, but Comoroto withstands the lariat! Comoroto fireman’s carries but Moxley slips around to SLEEPER HOLD! Comoroto falls, he is OUT! Moxley wins!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

The big man gave Moxley a big fight, but Moxley wouldn’t have it any other way! Moxley gets the mic and points to the fans before saying, “Now, anything can happen on Wednesdays on AEW Dynamite. And things are getting crazy~ around here, I can’t keep track of everything.” Moxley can’t tell who is in Bullet Club, The Elite, who’s from Impact or whatever, but that doesn’t matter. Omega thought he would bring his frat brothers to AEW and they’d watch his back. “Kenny, all’s you did was make it more fun. All you did was make it more interesting. More bodies, bigger brawls, more blood, more violence. More necks to break, more limbs to snap, I love this!”

The bigger the mountain, the sweeter it is at the top! Moxley will climb back up because you can bring the whole city of Nashville to Jacksonville, you can bring up whoever from Mexico or Japan, it remains the same. “All roads in professional wrestling lead through ME!!” Has Moxley just declared war not only on The Cleaner, but all the promotions willing to play ball with AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Eddie Kingston and The Fam.

For the first time ever, next week on Dynamite, Kingston will face Lance Archer 1v1 in the ring. How does he prepare for someone like Archer, or anyone he’s never faced before? Kingston doesn’t prepare, he just fights. And Kingston has been having a really hard time lately. PAC beat Kingston but Kingston is moving on to Archer. Kingston has to move on. But then Archer comes in, and Jake the Snake barely keeps him back! Archer says Pac beat Kingston, but Archer will end him! Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, a very simple concept. Kingston says he can go on with his poetry, but Archer says all Kingston ever does is shout. If Kingston wants to shut Archer up, do it in the ring! Kingston says it’s 1v1! Then he tells Jake to keep his boy under control.

Jake says Kingston’s one to talk, with his little baby chicken shit family. If Kingston wants to do something, do it face to face without his little butt kissers ringside! Deal! A true 1v1 match is coming, will the Mad King be able to stand after facing the Murderhawk Monster?

 

AEW returns as Kenny Omega arrives.

Alex Marvez is there waiting and asks Omega about his thoughts on what we saw at the beach. Omega wasn’t at the beach, so no comment. Well, AEW Media was with The Young Bucks and Don Callis at Omega’s house. They were at his house? Is nothing sacred? Get out of his way! Omega finds Callis in the locker room and shows off his new outfit. Whoa, what happened to Callis? Oh, the glasses? No, what’s under the glasses. Callis says Omega shouldn’t get upset, Callis had a “little accident” earlier. It’s not as bad as it looks. Who did that? No, it’s not about- Ow, don’t touch. Callis says this is not what he wants for Omega, Omega can’t lose focus right now.

Omega keeps asking but Callis says it’s fine. Nick & Matt- Uh oh. Omega can’t believe the Bucks did this. Marvez asks if Callis is saying the Bucks did that to him. What is he doing in here? Go away! Is there no privacy here? Omega still wants answers on what happened! We know that the camera went off, but did the Bucks really assault Callis?

 

Six Man Tag: Matt Sydal & Top Flight VS #HardyParty!

One of the best high flyers ever teams up with the coldest tag team in the game for an incredible combination! But manager “Big Money” Matt teams with his guys in Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy! Will Hardy and Private Party make their partnership worth their one-sided deal?

The trios sort out and Dante Martin starts against Quen. They circle, and Dante offers a handshake. Hardy doesn’t want Quen to take it but Quen says it’s fine, and they shake hands. Quen and Dante circle, tie up, and Quen arm-drags Dante but Dante arm-drags back. Quen blocks the hip toss to knee low and cartwheel, but Dante slips free to run and roll off the back, then dropkick Quen down! Darius gets in as Kassidy does and dropkicks him down! Hardy rushes in but into DOUBLE DROPKICKS! Fans fire up with Top Flight as Dante tags Sydal in. They focus on Quen with double CHOPS, and then a whip. Sydal and Top Flight pull off a TRIPLE HURDLE, then a pass to a WINDMILL KICK!

Dante gets a boost from Darius, they rebound off ropes and Dante flips Darius onto Sydal! Darius flips back but he’s not legal, Sydal has to cover. So Sydal adds a STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO! Quen hurries away and Hardy tells him to get serious here. Quen takes off his jacket and throws it at Sydal! Quen then fires off on Sydal, and tags in Kassidy. Kassidy sucker punches Top Flight then mugs Sydal with Quen! Private Party double forearm, kick and run, but Top Flight gets in and slides with Sydal to TRIPLE ROLLING TAKEDOWN, into a TRIPLE CRAB! Hardy is furious but the ref counts and Top Flight lets off their parts. Hardy gets in and DECKS Sydal!

Kassidy runs at Sydal at the ropes but Sydal pops him up! Kassidy holds ropes, tags Quen, and then headscissors Sydal into Quen’s ROUNDHOUSE! Springboard SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Quen clubs away on Sydal, then stomps him down! Quen brings Sydal up, bumps him off buckles, then tags in Kassidy. Private Party mugs Sydal as AEW goes picture in picture.

Hardy sneaks in a shot before Kassidy CHOPS Sydal, but Sydal CHOPS back Kassidy kicks low, pushes Sydal down and stomps him in the corner! Tag to Hardy, Kassidy digs his boots in, then Hardy does the same. The ref counts, Hardy lets off at 4, then RAMS into Sydal! And again! And again! Hardy brings Sydal up, scoops him, and LAWN DARTS him on the buckles! Cover, TWO! Hardy keeps on Sydal and ROCKS him with a right! Hardy whips, and catches Sydal to a sleeper! Sydal flails, reaches, but Hardy keeps him from the corner. Sydal fights up with body shots and breaks free with a jawbreaker! Hardy still grabs Sydal to drag him back to the corner.

Tag to Quen, Hardy Party mugs Sydal, and Quen bumps Sydal off buckles. Quen stomps Sydal then drags him up in a facelock. Sydal fights his way towards his corner but Quen pushes him back the other way. Tag to Kassidy and Private Party mugs Sydal more. Kassidy drags Sydal up and rams elbows into him! Tag to Quen, Kassidy CHOPS Sydal, then is the step stool for Quen to launch into a splash! Quen is the step now, Kassidy runs in, PARTY in Motion! Hardy tags in and clotheslines Sydal down! Hardy taunts Sydal and slaps him around, but Sydal KICKS back! And CHOPS! AEW returns to single picture as Sydal CHOPS Hardy more!

Hardy pokes Sydal in the eye! Then tags in Kassidy, and they mug Sydal more. Kassidy snapmares Sydal and wraps on a chinlock. Fans rally as Sydal endures, but Kassidy keeps Sydal away from ropes. Kassidy grinds Sydal down but Sydal fights up. Kassidy shifts to a facelock then tags in Quen. Private Party double suplex Sydal, but Sydal slips out! Sydal DECKS Hardy, and DOUBLE RANAS Private Party! Hot tag to Darius! Darius DECKS Kassidy, uppercuts Quen, goes up and over and sends Kassidy into Quen, then comes back to ENZIGURI Quen down! Darius waistlocks Kassidy, Kassidy standing switches but Darius elbows out!

Darius runs, gets around Kassidy and whips him into a STANDIN GSPANISH FLY! Hardy kicks low but no Twist! Dante ROCKS Hardy and dumps him out! Darius builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit sends Hardy hard into railing! Darius goes back to the ring to tag in Dante, but Kassidy kicks back. Kassidy whips Darius but Darius reverses!

Dante keeps his cool, drags Kassidy up, and he tags in Darius.

Top Flight mugs Kassidy, back suplex but Kassidy lands on his feet. Dante has Kassidy but Kassidy turns waistlock into wheelbarrow that sends Dante into Darius! Tag to Hardy, and Hardy grabs Dante. Dante fights out of Side Effect, but Darius wings into the SIDE EFFECT! Sydal tags in and goes up, Dante walks into a SIDE EFFECT! Sydal leaps but into a SIDE EFFECT!!

The ref and Hardy argue, Kassidy has a chair and he JAMS Dante in the ribs! Dante is down, Quen and Kassidy realize what they’ve done, and like it! Quen hits a SHOOTING STAR PRESS!! Cover, Hardy Party wins!

Winners: Hardy Party, by pinfall

Quen and Kassidy are buying into Big Money Matt’s “by any means necessary” policy! After all, they are #1 contenders to the Impact World Tag Team Championships. Darius and Sydal get in their face about it, though, and Hardy gives the nod. Private Party beats down Darius and Sydal! They hammer away on Sydal and drive knees into Darius, and then feed Darius to a TWIST OF FATE! Sydal gets a TWIST OF FATE, too! Will this new edge be what makes Private Party into champions?

 

MJF and Wardlow check with The Inner Circle.

MJF tells the cameraman to keep his distance before he and Wardlow walk in. “Oh, the bearer of bad news~!” Ortiz takes a guess: MJF wants the rest of them to be ringside when he and Jericho go after the tag titles, right? No, no, but MJF does get the hostility. Take it from him, if it were up to him, he isn’t so sure this match would be happening. Surely they all feel the same way. But, Chris is the leader, and as such, what he says goes. Sammy Guevara says if he had things his way, a lot of this wouldn’t be happening.

Hager and the others keep Sammy back but MJF says they’ve been doing this for months. MJF loves Hager, Santana and Ortiz, and even Sammy. They’re family, and they have to be family in order to succeed. Now, MJF respects Sammy because Sammy isn’t afraid to speak his mind. But can Sammy just understand that MJF isn’t some sociopath. MJF wants what’s best for the group, and so do they. So let’s all just go out there, have this match, and settle it. Everyone else fist bumps with MJF, but not Sammy. They’re not there yet. That’s fine. MJF says he’ll see them all out there, but is Sammy onto something?

 

Leyla Hirsch VS Penelope Ford w/ Kip Sabian, Miro & “Charles” Taylor!

#LEGIT is back in action, and up against the Superbad Bride-to-be! Freshly Squeezed, Orange Cassidy, can only watch from the crowd as his best friend is forced to be the BUTLER to the Best Man and the Superbad super couple. The suffering of “Charles” aside, will Ford at least be in a good mood with a win?

The bell rings, Ford and Hirsch circle, tie up, and go around. They break, and Hirsch smirks as she and Ford circle again. They tie up, Hirsch gets a waistlock but Ford switches. Hirsch hooks a leg to bring Ford down and then drags Ford around by it to get a waistlock. They roll around and Hirsch holds on tight to then float to a facelock. Ford gets up, Hirsch gets around for another takedown, lateral press, TWO! Ford facelocks but Hirsch wrenches out, only for Ford to headlock. Hirsch powers Ford to ropes, the ref calls for a break, and Hirsch honors it. But Ford kicks her leg out! Ford reels Hirsch into another headlock but Hirsch powers out, only for Ford to run her over!

But Hirsch kips up! Ford pie faces Hirsch out of annoyance, then runs, but Hirsch bypasses, drops, but Kip makes butler Charles trip Hirsch up! Ford handsprings but into an ARMBAR!! Ford scrambles, reaches, and gets a ropebreak with a foot! Hirsch lets go at 4 and then glares at Kip. Kip is making short jokes but is running away, too, and Ford BOOTS Hirsch down! Ford drags Hirsch up to throw her into railing! Kip mockingly reels in the big fish as AEW goes picture in picture.

Ford drags Hirsch up to RAM her into apron! Ford puts Hirsch in, drags her up and fisherman’s for the suplex! Ford drags Hirsch back up, whips her hard into a corner, and then fires off forearms! Ford whips Hirsch the other way, then handsprings in to back elbow! Wait, Hirsch got Ford first with forearms! Hirsch leaps over and comes back but Ford sends her into buckles! Ford runs side to side to KNEE Hirsch down! Ford rains down furious fists, drags Hirsch back up, then WRINGS her into buckles! Ford stands on Hirsch in the corner but the ref counts. Ford lets off at 4, Hirsch gets to the apron, but runs in to go up and over and drop knees on Hirsch on the apron!

Ford soaks up the heat before going back into the ring. Hirsch kicks back from the mat but Ford CLUBS her down, and AEW goes to break!

AEW returns and Ford is covering Hirsch, TWO! Fans fire up for Hirsch but Ford drags her by a leg. Hirsch kicks Ford away but Ford rolls her to her feet to CLUB her on the back! Hirsch just gets mad and ROCKS Ford with a forearm! Ford forearms back but Hirsch fires off! Hirsch runs, blocks the leg lariat and makes Ford to the splits, to then KNEE Ford down! And DEAD LIFT GERMANS! Ford flounders to a corner, Hirsch runs in corner to corner, METEORA, to a SWINGING DROPKICK! Cover, TWO!! Ford survives but Hirsch keeps her focus, and Cassidy likes(?) what he sees.

Hirsch climbs, but Ford trips her up! Ford runs and handsprings, but the ax kick misses! Hirsch CLOBBERS Ford, drags her to a drop zone, then runs in, up the corner, and LEAPS ONTO KIP AND CHUCK! Fans fire up as Hirsch eliminates the distracts, but then Ford BOOTS her on the return! Cover, and Kip keeps Hirsch’s leg down!! Ford wins!!

Winner: Penelope Ford, by pinfall

Miro tells “Charles” to get in the ring so we can all get an update. Miro tells “Charles” that he could be mean, but he’s not because he’s a nice guy. But Miro needs Charles to let go of the past so he can reach a bright future. Stand up straight. So Charles needs to look at Cassidy and tell him that MIRO is his best friend now! Chuck doesn’t want to but Miro tells him he has to. Cassidy stands up and Chuck takes the mic. Miro and Kip make sure he looks at Cassidy as he says it. “Miro is my best friend now.” Kip hugs Chuck and Miro gives a big thumbs up, and Cassidy walks away. Will Chuckie T be able to make it to Beach Break without breaking?

 

Something’s happening backstage!

The Good Brothers are attacking one of the Lucha Brothers! Karl Anderson stomps Penta El Zero M, then Doc Gallows drags him up to throw into the garage door! Omega comes over now, he and the Good Brothers mug Penta, and choke him using a power cord!! Omega takes off one of his fancy boots and JAMS the point into Penta’s eyes! “That’s what the Biz Clizz does!” But will they pay for going after Penta without Fenix and Pac around?

 

AEW has a lot planned for next week!

Not only will Eddie Kingston take on Lance Archer without any of their cohorts ringside, and not only will Dax Harwood take on Jungle Boy with all their teammates ringside, but Cody Rhodes will finally respond to comments made by Shaq! Plus, the Dark Order will try to move on from Hangman Page’s rejection in another 8 Man Tag, but against The Elite! Will the Young Bucks and Good Brothers be able to get along like back in the day? Or will the issues with Kenny Omega allow Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, Alex Reynolds and John Silver to cash in big on both the AEW AND Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions?

 

Plus, some news for AEW Beach Break!

With AEW Revolution only a month away, there will be a Tag Team Battle Royal to name the Young Bucks’ challengers! Which duo will be the last ones standing to take on Matt & Nick Jackson? Will the Inner Circle’s representative be in that battle royal? And speaking of Beach Break, the main event was going to be Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers VS Death Triangle, but after what the “Biz Clizz” did to Penta, Pac and Fenix will be teaming with JON MOXLEY!! Will Moxley get a semblance of revenge on The Cleaner in just two weeks?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

It is still in the works, but AEW is going to put together a WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP Eliminator Tournament! Talent from both America and Japan are going to compete in a SIXTEEN PARTICIPANT bracket! Who will prove themselves worthy of taking on the Full Metal Warrior, Hikaru Shida?

 

The Inner Circle Tag Team Challenge: Proud ‘n’ Powerful VS Sammy-Hager VS Y2MJF!

Santana and Ortiz thought they were going to be THE team in the faction from day one. The Spanish God accused Le Champion of being a #TagTeamSlut! But will all of the issues be put aside when the dust clears?

In this style of Triple Threat Tag, only two teams are active but anyone can tag off one of the opponents. They sort out and MJF starts with Sammy.

Say it ain’t so! MJF said this would be all in good sportsmanship but that was the exact opposite! And AEW has to wrap up for the night, what will be the fallout of this frantic finish!?


My Thoughts:

What a great episode! We got a great start with the birthday celebration for Brodie Jr. and the 8 Man Tag. Hangman’s rejection being a surprise to the Dark Order was great, with the prepared celebration now being for nothing. This will be an interesting twist to their story, especially with that huge 8 Man announced for next week. Also, Negative One Brodie got to have some more fun, getting on the case of the Dark Order henchmen and smacking Serpentico with a kendo stick. We got a lot of good set up for next week, the go-home to Beach Break. Dax VS JB with everyone ringside and Kingston VS Archer with no one ringside will both be good steps in progressing story, and both could probably go either way.

Cody VS Avalon going from squash to an actually strong match was a great twist, and all while plugging the story of Jade and Shaq VS the Nightmare Family. I have a feeling that Cody’s response to Shaq will set up something for AEW Revolution as Beach Break is too soon and anything else would be just too long to wait for. Sting and Darby didn’t get much of a segment since Team Taz interrupts, but I like the idea that Sting’s first bit of action back will likely be a Street Fight/No Holds Barred situation, which perhaps helps with the fact that he hasn’t wrestled in years and being loose and freeform with it will actually hide that he’s rusty.

Hardy Party VS Top Flight & Sydal was a really good match, with a lot of great character work from Quen and Kassidy. They did become Impact Tag Team Championship contenders on the newest episode of Impact, but now they’re turning from the fun loving Faces into the dastardly Heels Hardy wants them to be. This could get them over the hump here in AEW, but who knows how it’ll turn out on Impact. They won’t win the titles, though, Gallows & Anderson are just too good, and there’s a lot for them to still do in the overall Omega story, where being the tag champions might help give a bit more weight to what happens.

Moxley VS Comoroto was very good, especially for Comoroto’s first showing on Dynamite. The story with Omega and the rest of Bullet Club/Elite was great stuff, especially Callis’ part with the Bucks. It really seems to work with how, between AEW and Impact, this new Cleaner Omega is getting a big ego and is basically going Hollywood without going to Hollywood. The 8 Man Tag next week is going to be really good just on character points as the Bucks and Good Brothers have been friends just as long, if not longer, than with Omega, but are taking sides on this issue. Then the beat down on who I’m pretty sure was fake Penta works to get Moxley into the story, and the Beach Break main event is going to be great stuff.

Ford VS Hirsch was good but mostly used as the vehicle to Miro’s story with Chuck Taylor and Best Friends. Chuck was being forced to cheat on their behalf, and obviously didn’t mean what he said about him and Miro being friends. This just furthers the idea that Trent will return at Beach Break where he and Cassidy ruin the Superbad wedding and then Chuck is free of the butler duties so he can get revenge on Miro, too. I really like the news of the AEW Women’s Championship Eliminator Tournament to not just parallel the men’s tournament from late 2020, but also to finally get AEW’s Women’s Division going. Plus, it strengthens the bond with Stardom as many of the women who went between the two promotions are already reacting on social media and will surely be part of the tournament.

Then the main event, the Triple Threat Tag, for not actually being that long of a match, was a spectacular match. The build up all night was really good, and MJF sure did make it seem like Jericho was to blame for the whole thing. Probably hints at MJF trying to usurp the role as leader in the Inner Circle from him. Commentary did a great job pointing out that MJF was letting everyone else wrestle for the first part of the match, and then he ended up not having much of a choice in the second half. It really did feel like any one of the teams could’ve taken this, but in the end it was still Y2MJF winning because of MJF’s craftiness. I’m wondering if participate in Beach Break’s tag team battle royal since MJF has history of winning the Dynamite Diamond Ring battle royals.

My Score: 9.4/10

“Welcome to Collision. Welcome to the one year anniversary of Collision.

Jon Moxley is still IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Wheeler Yuta is still ROH Pure Champion, and both Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli are still bad, bad men!

Winners: Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

The BCC defend homefield in AEW, and we’re just two weeks away from Forbidden Door! Moxley then gets the mic to say, “Tetsuya Naito of NJPW is a survivor, but The Forbidden Door is the final conflict. This is it. This is your last chance. I’m not coming to beat you,  Naito. I’m not coming to defend the IWGP Championship. I’m coming to Forbidden Door to put an end to Tetsuya Naito once and for all! Naito, I’m coning to Forbidden Door to finish you, to finish your career, to put you in a pine box, to put you in the ground, and to BURY your ass once and for all!!” A powerful ultimatum with still two weeks to go, will the Maniac also be the man that retires Naito?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Youngstown, Ohio, please welcome The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn! The fans fire up as Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass make their way to the ring. Schiavone lets Caster have the mic, and he says usually the Acclaimed comes out here with a rap, some punchlines, but tonight, if you didn’t see, but the “love” EVPs, the Young F’s…! Well, those guys issued a $5 THOUSAND FINE on them for disparaging company executives!? There was a tweet about it! Seems these EVPs are outta touch with the fans! Youngstown confirms!

Caster says the fans don’t want a couple of women’s business suit wearing a-holes! They want Platinum Max roasting everyone! They want Bowens & Billy hitting the scissor fingers, and you bet they want The Acclaimed to become the NEW AEW World Tag team Champions! And if Bowens was The Bucks, he wouldn’t focus the pettiness on raps and tweets, but on the fact that they will be face to face with The Acclaimed for the first time in four years. And this isn’t the same team they faced before in 2020. They are not an upstart! They have the same exact accolades as The Bucks do! Scissor King, Platinum Max, FORMER AEW World Tag Team Champions, FORMER AEW World Trios Champions, the WINNINGEST team in the history of AEW!!

And all they have to get the titles back is beat The Bucks twice. So do your worst! FINE them, but all they want is to get those titles back, get this company back, and prove that EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! In fact, forget fines! Take those fines, stick ’em up your virgin asses, because everyone here is gonna kick it old school for you! YO! YO! YO! LISTEN~! But then someone says NOOOO~! And it’s Brandon Cutler! He tells The Acclaimed to listen! This one year anniversary of Collision is to be a night of praise for the EVPs! They’ve carried this show since day one! But these limp noodles use their public platform to disparage!

So if they want a fine? FINE! Here’s a $10 THOUSAND fine! Then it’ll be $15- Christopher Daniels comes out here to stop Cutler. The Acclaimed had Daniels’ back, so here’s some good news. Tony Khan has REVERSED the fines, they get their money back! And Cutler, we don’t need to hear any more from you. But Cutler shows his clipboard to Daniels. Daniels SMACKS Cutler with the clipboard! Then DECKS him with his fist! Daniels TOSSES Cutler in for The Acclaimed to handle! They trip him up, hold him open, and Bowens goes up to say, SCISSOR ME TIMBERS~! Cutler crawls away in shame, but will The Bucks make sure The Acclaimed pay for that on Wednesday?

 

No Disqualifications: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

La Mera Mera tried to be an ally to The Virtuosa against their common enemy, but the only thing they had in common was that they wanted to be the one to take down Toni Storm. That made them into enemies, and it has escalated to this! With nothing holding these two back, who stops at nothing to make sure the other regrets ever showing up in AEW?

Deonna doesn’t wait, she attacks while Rosa’s on the corner! The bell rings and Deonna puts Rosa in the Tree of Woe. Deonna runs in, but Rosa sits up! Deonna slides out of the ring, and Rosa CROSSBODIES down onto her! Rosa fires off hands, then POSTS Deonna! The fans rally behind Rosa and she CHOPS Deonna against the apron. Rosa SMACKS Deonna off the steel steps, then off them again, and then again! Rosa stands on Deonna, Deonna pushes her away, and Rosa starts bringing out stuff from under the ring! A chain, a trash can, and the lid! Rosa SMACKS Deonna with the lid! And then pushes the lid into Deonna with a boot!

The fans want tables but Rosa runs up first. Deonna dodges, Rosa dropkicks the steps! Deonna drags Rosa up, puts an arm between steps and post, then BOOTS the steps! Rosa falls back, clutching the elbow! Deonna snarls, goes looking under the ring, and she brings out a kendo stick! Deonna throws that all the way over the ring, but she gets some chairs. Deonna wedges a chair in a corner, then gets Rosa up. Rosa reverses the whip but Deonna stops herself! Deonna kicks and whips, but Rosa stops. Rosa ELBOWS Deonna, fireman’s carries, then DEATH VALLEY DRIVERS! Cover, TWO! Deonna stays in this but Rosa goes looking for more!

Rosa brings out a TABLE! Youngstown cheers as Rosa gets that big thing up, only for Deonna to DROPKICK it into her! The fans boo but Deonna soaks up the heat, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Deonna drags the table up for herself, and she puts that in the ring. Deonna drags Rosa up, wrenches, then kicks Rosa. Deonna hammerlocks an arm before she POSTS Rosa! And then she hammerlocks and POSTS Rosa again! Rosa clutches the side of her face, but there’s no blood, yet. Deonna gets Rosa in the ring, then drags her over to snapmare by the table. Deonna steps over Rosa to trap the arms, then turns her over so she can dribble Rosa’s head onto the wood! Deonna lets off and Rosa flops over. Cover, TWO! Rosa is tougher than that but Deonna keeps her cool as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and the two fight over a chair. Deonna JAMS Rosa up, takes a swing, but Rosa dodges! Rosa BOOTS the chair into Deonna! Then Rosa grabs the chair to JAM Deonna, and SMACK her on the back! And SMACK her again! Rosa brings Deonna around, fireman’s carries, and SAMOAN DROPS her on the folded table! Cover, TWO! Deonna is still in this but Rosa drags her around to put in a corner. Rosa hoists Deonna up top, goes up after her, but Deonna fights with body shots! Rosa CLUBS Deonna in return, but Deonna slips under! Rosa rains down fists, so Deonna YANKS her into the buckle! CHEEKY NANDOS!

Rosa falls into the Tree of Woe, Deonna runs up and this time, she RAMS into Rosa! Rosa falls out of the Tree, Deonna covers, TWO!! Rosa survives that Spear of Woe or whatever you’d call it, and the fans rally up. Deonna drags Rosa up, slashes her throat, and then Gotch lifts, but Rosa fights that! Rosa wrenches out to FULL METAL DDT!! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives hitting steel but Rosa won’t let up. Rosa brings Deonna over to a corner, and puts the trash can around her! The fans cheer as Rosa stomps away on Deonna! Deonna sits down, Rosa grabs the table and she brings that around. The fans cheer as it’s finally set up!

Rosa SMACKS the can with the chain! Then Rosa finishes setting the table up, to use it as a ramp! FLYING SHOTGUN into the trash can!! The fans are thunderous for that unique use of a table, and then Rosa covers Deonna, TWO!?!? Deonna survives the savage innovation, but Rosa won’t give up just yet. Rosa completely stands the table up now, but Deonna has a chair! She slide sit at Rosa, the table falls over, but Rosa JAMS Deonna up with it! Rosa reels Deonna in, underhooks, but Deonna fights the package to wrench out! Deonna reels Rosa in, for a KNEELING PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!!! Rosa lives and Deonna is stunned!

Deonna clamps onto the arm, FUJIWARA! Rosa reaches out, but ends up in the VENUS DE MILO!!! Rosa reaches with her legs, but Deonna HAMMERS away on her head! Deonna rolls past Rosa to then look around on the outside. She LOW BLOWS a staff member!? Just to CLOBBER Rosa with his camera!!! Deonna shows no mercy to anyone, and she puts Rosa in the ropes! MOTORCYCLE STRETCH IN THE ROPES! Rosa’s out cold, Deonna wins!!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by referee stoppage

That camera shot might as well have been a knockout! But Deonna still gets the win either way. Is Deonna going to move on from Rosa once and for all to then go after a title? Or will Rosa’s revenge not die with one loss?

 

Hechicero w/ The Gates of Agony VS Dalton Castle

Now this is a unique match-up! The Alchemist of Lucha is taking on The Peacock, and… wait are those The Outrunners being Castle’s substitute Boys? Well, uh, Turbo & Truth aside, will Castle be too hot to handle even for the man that summons fire? Or will Hechicero turn this Forbidden Door appetizer into sweet, sweet victory?

The bell rings and the fans fire up as these two get face to face. Hechi shoves Castle, Castle gets serious. They feel things out, tie up, and Hechi facelocks. Castle still powers Hechi to ropes, the ref calls the break, and the two let off clean. Castle gets fired up and eggs Hechi on. Hechi CHOPS, so Castle UPPERCUTS! They fire back and forth, CHOP for forearm, then Castle fires off a flurry! Castle runs, but HEchi follows to CROSSBODY! Hechi slips right into a SLEEPER at the ropes! Hechi shoves Castle away, goes up, and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Hechi kicks Castle around and eggs him on.

Hechi CLUBS away on Castle, runs, but Castle wrenches to LARIAT, KNEE, and DDT! The fans fire up as Castle gets a wild look in the eyes. Castle clamps on a half nelson, then CLUBS away on Hechi to get him up. Hechi fights with elbows of his own, but runs into an Alabama Lift! Castle spins, BANGAAA- NO, Hechi slips free, pops Castle up, and has the COBRA CLUTCH STRAITJACKET! Castle flails, pushes back to a cover, TWO! Hechi keeps the body scissors, wants the rear naked choke but Castle rolls. Hechi drags Castle up but Castle arm-drags free! Hechi BOOTS back, swings, but Castle blocks to ELBOW!

Castle snarls, runs, but Hechi follows to LARIAT in the corner! Hechi fires fast hands and a CHOP! Castle sits down, Kaun & Liona like what they see. Hechi powers up but runs into a clinch! EXPLODER! Castle and Hechi both rise, and the fans fire up with Castle! Hechi swings, but into another lift! Hechi sunset flips, TWO!! Castle just manages to escape, and he BOOTS Hechi! Hechi goes to a corner, Castle runs in but Hechi dodge! SHINING WIZARD! Hechi keeps going, LA MYSTICA LEG DROP! Cover, Hechi wins!

Winner: Hechicero, by pinfall

That was some in-ring magic for sure! The Gates of Agony celebrate with their new ally, will they and The Machine, Brian Cage, soon take over AEW and CMLL? But then Hechi beats up on Castle, puts him in a corner, and Liona HIP ATTACKS! Kaun METEORAS! The fans boo, but The Outrunners run in! Only to get CLOBBERED by The Gates… Hechi then feeds Castle to the Gates for the LARIAT SANDWICH! And they CLOSE- NO! Daniel Garcia hurries out here, with a chair! He and Daddy Magic have Castle’s back as they run off Hechi & The Gates! Will even The Alchemist of Lucha fear Red Death?

 

Backstage interview with Dante Martin.

Arkady Aura is with Angel Dorado, as well as his teammates, Darius Martin & Action Andretti. She brings up Dante facing Lee Moriarty in the TNT Championship qualifier. However, everyone else is banned from ringside. Dante says that’s fine, because Top Flight is about friendly competition. He remembers a time when Lee Moriarty was once about that. Darius asks if Dante is running. He’s not. Is he scared? He’s not. Because this is one of the best high-fliers today! High-flying and redeye-ing! Action promises that at Forbidden Door, Dante will be the NEW TNT Champion! But in steps Lio Rush. He says what’s up, long time no see. Good to see he has some new friends.

Not sure if any of them knew this or not, but Lio and Action go way back. That’s true. So as far as Darius, nice to finally meet you. Darius knows who Lio is, and won’t shake his hand. Okay, that’s fine. Just wanted to wish Dante luck tonight. Maybe see them around. Lio heads out, Action says yeah, great seeing him again. Top Flight heads out, but will Dante book him and the boys some golden tickets to Long Island? Or will #TAIGASTYLE make sure Shane Taylor Promotions takes over New York?

 

The Patriarchy is in the ring.

And “Mother” Shayna Wayne asks for everyone’s attention. They boo her? They boo a mother?! How dare you! Shayna demands they all get on their feet right now and pay respect to “the greatest father to ever live,” THEIR Patriarch, Christian Cage. And with that, Captain Charisma makes his way out here. Christian takes the mic and sits in the fancy chair they have for him. “Well, I didn’t exactly have ‘spending the most important holiday of the year’ in The Rust Belt, but here we are.” The fans boo but Christian says Youngstown needs to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts his business.

Now, he’d be remised if he didn’t acknowledge what today is. Today is the anniversary of his son, Nick Wayne’s biological father passing away. Christian says that can affect a child many different ways. You might wonder why the universe can be so cool. But in a strange way, Nick’s father dying was the best thing that could’ve ever happened to him, because it led him to Christian Cage. The fans boo but Christian says this veiled picture must of course be a gift for him. Did Nick commission this? Nick even has a card! Christian opens it up, and it says Happy Father’s Day. A homemade card from the heart? Should he read it?

“To Dad, You are the greatest TNT Champion in history,m and I can only dream of having half your tlanet, but I will keep striving to prove my worth. Love, Nick.” How thoughtful, Christian appreciates that. And uh, can we unveil the portrait now? Of course! The curtain is taken away, and it’s a failry impressive painting. Did Luchasaurus do this himself? Wow. Then uh, this is… Okay. But Nick’s card is unbelievable! He’s a wordsmith! It’s popping off the paeg! Christian has never been prouder, he will cherish this forever. And uh, Killswitch- The fans chant “LUCHASAURUS!” but he says shut up, he’s Killswitch! Killswitch, why can’t you be more like Nick?

Luchasaurus storms off! The fans cheer but Christian says he wasn’t excused! Get back in line! Christian has something important to say and everyone will want to hear this. Luchasaurus reluctantly stands back by the chair, and Christian says that’s a good looking guy in the picture either way. Now, it is no secret that Double Or Nothing was a couple weeks ago. And Christian clearly fell short in his quest to become AEW World Champion. But what you might not realize is that there is alternate footage clearly showing his shoulder was up! The EVPs want to do the right thing and show this footage, but he politely asked not to show it.

This family does not make excuses here! They just roll up their sleeves and get back to work! Christian vows to one day be World Champion, and that path starts with winning the Trios Championships! That’s right! Christian’s gift to his “sons” is that they will hold titles together. The fans still chant for Luchasaurus but Christian tells them to shut up! Now yes, it is uncommon for the father to give a gift to his children on Father’s Day, but that is what a good father would do. He would give anything to make his children smile. Hey, even Tony Khan’s dad gave him millions upon millions of dollars to start this company!

But here’s the thing, Tony Khan, this very instant, Christian Cage says this is HIS company! He is the greatest, most talked about and influential star in this sport! He will win every accolade until he goes down as THE greatest in history! So Tony, Christian is your father now. They are The Patriarchy, the next Trios Champions, the Faces of TNT, now and forever! Captain Charisma has spoken, but will his declaration become reality?

 

The Bang Bang Gang speaks.

Juice Robinson says it is the one-year anniversary of Collision, and they are the Collision Cowboys, the men who built this brick by brick! Juice broke his back carrying this place! Colten says that as such, they hold a lot of gold. There are a lot of teams gunning for them, but they can’t handle the pressure. House of Black tonight, and now The Patriarchy wants a shot? Yeah, it’s Father’s Day, but you don’t get special privilege. Get in line! Austin adds that House of Black, they’re not sure what’s going on, maybe they’ve been in the dark too long, but open your eyes, dilate the pupils, and uh, notice that Jay White isn’t here.

Tonight is NOT for the titles, but tonight is about proving whether or not if you can hang with the OGs! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP!

 

TNT Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Lee Moriarty VS Dante Martin!

As we heard from Dante, these two used to be friends, but ambition seems to have given #TAIGASTYLE a bit of a salty edge. Will Lee use that edge to clip Angel Dorado’s wings? Or will Dante prove that he not only does things the right way, but can win at the same time?

The bell rings, the fans rally as the two circle, and then Lee goes for a leg. Dante steps over, trips Lee, then speeds up. Lee drops, hurdles, but Dante stops to hurdle and drop. Lee handsprings, then shimmies and shakes. The fans cheer and the two reset. Dante and Lee feel things out, and the fans are behind Dante. Lee gives a testing kick, then the two knuckle lock. Lee wrenches, trips Dante, then GROUND DRAGON SCREWS! The fans are torn, but Lee drags Dante around by the leg< Dante kicks free, reaches up, and RANAS! The fans fire up, Dante speeds up, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then jumps to RANA again!

Lee flounders, Dante stays by ropes,. Lee runs up, Dante goes up and over! Lee tumbles out of the ring, Dante builds speed! Dante FLIES, but lands safe as Lee moves aside! Lee thinks he’s safe, but then Dante uses the corner to DROPKICK Lee down! Dante copies the shimmy and then drags Lee up. Dante CHOPS Lee against the railing! The fans fire up for that one, and Dante puts Lee in the ring. Dante then jumps right up to the apron, springboards, but Lee trips him up! Dante tumbles back down and Lee grins. Lee claps and the fans applaud, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Lee waits on Dante, and Dante slides back in. Lee stomps Dante at the ropes again and again and again! Dante writhes, Lee drags him up, then KNEES low. Lee fires m ore knees, then shoves Dante to RAM into him. Lee reels Dante in to HALF HATCH! Roll back and cover, TWO! Lee keeps on Dante with a hammerlock, then traps that arm to go after the other. Dante endures, even as Lee pushes on the arm. Lee twists the fingers and wrist to bend the arm, and then use it as a recliner! Dante endures as Lee gives a thumbs up. Lee then sits back up, to stomp the arm down! Dante writhes, Lee stomps him around, then Lee drags Dante up.

Lee fires more knees into Dante, shoves him, but Dante leaps up and over to sunset flip! TWO, and Lee ROCKS Dante with fast hands! Dante blocks a kick but not the KNEE! Dante sits down, Lee basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Lee is annoyed but he clamps onto the arm again. Dante endures, Lee bends the fingers and wrist, to JAM the fingers into the mat! Dante still endures, but Lee clamps on, chinbars, and pushes on the joint. The fans rally, Dante fights, but Lee throws knees to keep him down. Lee pulls on the chinbar but Dante powers up. Collision returns to single picture, and the fans rally as Dante pries free!

Dante arm-drags Lee away, Lee runs up, but Dante BOOTS him! ROLLING ELBOW! Dante ROCKS Lee again, whips, but the bad arm jams up! Lee whips Dante away, runs up, but Dante slips to the outside! Dante ROCKS Lee, springboards to go up and around, but Lee grabs a leg. Dante kicks him away, jumps again and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Lee survives but Dante stays focused. The fans fire up with Dante as he rises, and Dante reels Lee in. Lee fights the half nelson, so Dante CLUBS away! Lee wrenches free of the waistlock, brings Dante to a knee, and he SNAPS the fingers! What a villain!

Lee gets Dante’s arms tired up, clinches, YOYO URENAGE! Into the BORDER CITY STRETCH!! Dante endures, reaches out, and he crawls with the one free arm! Lee kicks at that arm, but Dante uses a leg for the ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as Lee lets off, and then Lee brings Dante up! Lee suplexes into a SLAM, then covers, TWO!! Dante escapes that deep tuck and Lee is frustrated. Lee kicks at Dante while they’re both down, then Lee rises up. Lee aims, Dante rises, and Lee runs up, but Dante ducks the kick! JUMP KNEE! Lee wobbles, but he BOOTS back! Lee runs up, into a KNEE from Dante!

Dante goes up, METEORA! Lee is down and the fans fire up as Dante climbs a corner! MAMBA SPLASH!! Cover, Dante wins!

Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall (advances to Forbidden Door)

And with that, the fourth spot is filled! Dante joins Mark Briscoe, Konosuke Takeshita & Jack Perry, but wait! Shane Taylor & Anthony Ogogo show up to mug Dante! The fans boo as STP are sore losers! BODY SHOT from Ogogo! But here come Darius & Action! They fight with STP but that’s 3v2! Shane DECKS Darius, Ogogo GERMAN SUPLEXES Action! URENAGE for Darius! The fans boo more but STP doesn’t care. Lio Rush hurries out here, he asks what this is all about. Shane dares Lio to bring his little ass in here! Lio does, and he slips under Shane to shove Ogogo into him! Then he schoolboys Ogogo to SPIN KICK!

Shane whips Lio but Lio stops himself at the ropes! Lio eggs Shane on, then DUMPS him out! Lee runs up but Lio TOSSES Him out, and HANDSPRING KICKS Lee into Shane! Lio stands tall with Top Flight, and refs hurry out to stop this from getting any wilder. Will Shane Taylor make sure Lio meets his final hour soon enough? As for Dante and Top Flight, they nod respect to Lio, but still no handshakes. Will Lio just have to give them all time to trust him?

 

Hikaru Shida speaks.

“I have been in AEW since day one. I am a three-time world champion. I am the longest reigning AEW Women’s World Champion. And I am officially entering the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. That tournament needs me. And Wembley Stadium needs me! And the Shining Samurai will go to Wembley Stadium to once again become Women’s Champion.” Will Shida shine all the way through the Summer to then go All In on an incredible fourth Women’s World Championship reign?

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS Anthony Henry!

The Violent Artist has been trying to do things on his own, but even now, Roderick Strong & The Kingdom tag along. They’re on commentary for this match, and BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite! It will be an “All-Star 8 Man” as Roderick Strong joins forces with Kyle Fletcher, Konosuke Takeshita and Zack Sabre Jr. VS Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy, Dante Martin & Mark Briscoe. Will the Savior of the Backbreaker still be able to support his “friend” here tonight knowing that now? Or will Roddy find himself rooting for the other guy?

The bell rings and the two circle. They feel things out, and tie up. Henry powers Kyle back but Kyle turns that around. They go around and around, Kyle waistlocks but Henry switches. Kyle switches and drags Henry down Henry blocks one kick but has to duck the other! The fans cheer as Henry backs off, and the two reset. Kyle and Henry feel things out, knuckle lock, and go shoulder to shoulder. They go around, Henry throws Kyle down but Kyle has the leg guard up. Kyle kicks one knuckle lock apart to trip Henry up. Henry uses a leg guard now, but Kyle stands. Henry uses body scissors to climb up and go for the arm!

Kyle moves around, back drops and ARMBAR! Henry scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! Kyle lets go, KICKS at Henry, then wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! This relentless Kyle is the kind Roddy likes. Kyle wrenches, whips, but Henry holds ropes! Kyle KICKS the leg, then hooks it. Henry turns that around to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Henry traps Kyle’s head to NECK TWIST! Henry holds on, grabs an arm, then gives some kicks. Kyle just gets mad! The fans rally for Kyle and Roddy also coaches Kyle. Kyle stands, Henry KICKS, but Kyle ROCKS Henry. They fire off forearms, henry fires a strike fest!

Kyle blocks a kick, gives a strike fest in return, then SWEEPS the legs! The fans fire up as Henry flounders to a corner. Kyle runs up to forearm SMASH! Then wrench and ELOBW BREAKER, to a KNEE, to a suplex and FALCON ARROW into the ARMBAR! Henry TAPS, Kyle wins!

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by submission

Roddy says that’s because of his presence! Roddy says Kyle is clearly missing something, or someone, to help him get that edge. Will Kyle show Roddy plenty of that “edge” this Wednesday?

 

Six Man Tag: The Bang Bang Gang VS The House of Black!

We heard from Rock Hard Juice Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin earlier tonight, but now is time to put up or shut up! Malakai, Brody & Buddy have been World Trios Champions before, but will they get one step closer to becoming Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions? Or will the House fold when facing the Collision Cowboys in their house?

The trios sort out, but then they all step to each other. The fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” but we get Juice and The Dark Father. Juice and Malakai circle, then tie up. Malakai headlocks, Juice powers out but Malakai runs him over! Cover, ONE and Juice arm-drags! Malakai headscissors, Juice kips free, but Malakai avoids the arm-drag to sit down. The fans fire up, so Juice lifts a leg a la dogs. Malakai stands up to KICK Juice down! Juice scrambles away, Austin tags in. Austin is all fired up, but then Brody tags in! Austin turns around and tags Colten! Colten says that’s fine, he can bark it up. Brody swings, Colten bobs ‘n’ weaves and ROCKS-

Er, well, no, Brody doesn’t seem too bothered. Brody runs Colten over, he runs Austin over, then runs them both over! The Gunns stagger up, Brody runs up to DOUBLE LRIAT them out! Juice runs in but Brody TOSSES him out onto The Gunns! The fans fire up as The House stands together, they all build speed, but the Bang Bang Gang gets in to say BANG! So the House DECKS them all! The House tosses everyone out and the brawl is on as Collision goes picture in picture!

Brody is after Juice, Malakai TOSSES Austin, and Buddy CHOPS Colten. Malakai BOOTS Austin into the crowd! Brody sits Juice in a corner to CHOP! Malakai joins in to mug Juice, and Buddy KNEES Colten. Brody brings Juice around to whip hard into railing! Austin returns but Malakai KNEES him down. Brody CLUBS Austin, the fans fire up, and Brody CHOPS Austin. Buddy brings Colten over to join in, and he UPPERCUTS Colten into a seat. Brody herds Austin and Juice that way, the Bang Bang Gang all take seats, and Malakai KICKS away on them all! The fans hoot and bark with Brody as he runs in, to TRIPLE CROSSBODY!

The fans cheer and high-five Brody as The Bang Bang Gang all slumps down. Brody drags Colten up to put him in, and then stalks Colten to his empty corner. Brody grins at Colten’s fear, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns again and Buddy tags Malakai. They mug Colten, then Malakai wrenches to tag Buddy. Buddy climbs up to DOUBLE STOMP Colten’s arm! Buddy taunts Austin, goes back to Colten and wrenches. Tag to Malakai and he KNEES the arm! Malakai wrenches but Colten throws him down by his hair! Tag to Austin and Austin stomps away on Malakai! The ref counts, Austin lets off, but Malakai BOOTS him! Austin runs up to CLOBBER Malakai! Austin throws hands, then tags in Colten. They whip Malakai, to BODY SHOT, KNEE LIFT, and DROPKICK! Juice tags in to SENTON! Cover, TWO!

Juice stands on Malakai, the Gunns YANK Buddy & Brody down! Juice whips Malakai hard into the corner! Juice stomps away on Malakai, argues with the ref, then drags Malakai back up. Juice snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Malakai is still in this and Juice is frustrated. Juice stands Malakai up to bump him off buckles, then he tags Austin in. They mug Malakai, Austin asks “Who’s the Ass Boy now?” “YOU!!” Austin frowns, then fires hands on Malakai. Tag to Colten, he stomps away on Malakai. The ref counts, Colten ROCKS Malakai but the fans rally up. Juice tags in, he stomps at Malakai, then eggs him on.

Juice HEADBUTTS, but Malakai ROCKS Juice, DECKS the Gunns, then fires off on Juice! Juice blocks a kick, to LEG LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Malakai is still in this and Juice is upset with the ref’s count! Juice clamps onto Malakai for a chinlock but Malakai endures. Malakai fights up as the fans rally, and Malakai KICKS the bad leg! Juice THROAT CHOPS back! Malakai falls into a corner, Juice goes corner to corner, CANNONBALL only gets buckles! Malakai crawls, as does Juice, hot tag to Colten! He CLOBBERS Malakai, then whips him away. Colten runs up, but only gets buckles! Austin tags in, grabs Malakai’s foot, but Malakai BOOTS him into Colten!

Hot tag to Buddy! The fans fire up as the Aussie Juggernaut fires off strikes and a BOOT to Austin! POP-UP KNEE for Colten! Austin runs up, into a tilt-o-whirl and LAWN DART into Colten! Buddy reels Austin in for the JACKHAMMER! Cover, Juice breaks it! The fans boo but Juice hurries to BLAST Brody! Juice goes back to Buddy to whip, but Buddy lands safe on the apron! Buddy GAMANGIRIS Juice, bumps him off buckles, then BOOTS him away! Buddy goes up, Juice staggers around, into the METEORA! Cover, TWO! Buddy’s bad knee is bothering him, but he hobbles up to tag in Brody. Brody storms in and the fans fire up as we go picture in picture again.

Buddy has medics check his knee, he may have taken himself out when he hit Juice. Brody does his best to focus on the match, and he puts Austin in a corner. Buddy is in some serious pain, though. Brody runs up to CLOBBER Austin in the corner! Brody hoots and barks and gets the fans back into this. Brody roars, runs, but Colten saves his brother! The Bang Bang Gang regroups on the outside, the medics are still checking on Buddy but it isn’t looking good. This is basically 3v2 now. Juice & The Gunns strategize, knowing they have the advantage now. The ref has Bang Bang Gang settle down a minute while Buddy is helped to the back.

The fans applaud as Buddy is doing his best to walk on the good leg, and Collision returns to single picture. But the Gunns jump on Brody, they and Juice mug him, and Malakai tries to help but is sent back out! The fans chant “YOU SUCK!” but the Bang Bang Gang doesn’t care! Tag to Colten and he stomps away on Brody. The ref counts, Colten tags Austin back in, and now Austin stomps Brody. Tag to Juice, he gets some stomps in! The fans still taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” but Juice blows boogers onto Brody! Then Juice CANNONBALLS! Direct hit and Juice covers, TWO! Brody stays in this and the fans fire up!

Austin tags in, then he tags Colten. The Gunns get Brody up, whip him to ropes, but Brody denies the 3:10 with a LARIAT! And another LARIAT! Juice runs up, but into a BOSS MAN SLAM! Brody is down and the fans fire up! Brody crawls, the fans hoot and bark, hot tag to Malakai! Malakai breaks through Colten’s lariat to BOOT Austin! Malakai dodges Colten, DECKS Austin, then ELBOWS Colten! A strike fest and a LEG SEWEP for Austin! SLIDING KNEE! The fans fire up, but Juice takes the QUEBRADA for Colten! Malakai still ROUNDHOUSES Colten and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO!!

Malakai snarls and the fans fire up! Colten rises, distracts the ref with talk of injury, and Juice grabs a leg! Malakai kicks Juice away, but Colten runs up, FLYING FOREARM! Cover, TWO!! Colten’s shot doesn’t finish this but he tags to Austin. The Gunns get Malakai up, double whip, 3:10- NO, Malakai BOOTS Colten, BOOTS Austin, but Juice HOTSHOTS! FAMOUSER from Austin! Cover, TWO!! Malakai survives and Austin is stunned! The Gunns reload, call their shot, and they coordinate with Juice! Juice goes up, but Brody is back! The Gunns dodge him, 3:10 TO YUMA!!! But they have to get Malakai down!

Austin turns Malakai, Juice finally aims, but PAC is here?! The Bastard spooks Juice, trips him up, then flips off Austin! Austin swings on Pac, but turns around into THE END!!! Cover, The House wins!!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

The Bastard told The Bang Bang Gang that he was not going to let what they did to Death Triangle slide! The House still gets the win, even with Buddy going down with a bad knee. But then The Patriarchy has to come in via the tron to ruin all the fun. Christian Cage says congratulations to The House. Congratulations on becoming the #1 contenders to the World Trios Championships. The only problem is, they’re not a trio anymore. The Patriarchy reveals they took out Buddy!! The Patriarchy leaves Buddy down and out, right as Malakai & Brody rush to the back! Will Christian Cage stoop to new lows just so he and his “sons” can rise up the ranks?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision for the anniversary episode, and I appreciate it was more rock, less talk. The only real talky stuff was everything Christian Cage did, but even that wasn’t so bad because he didn’t take forever getting to the point. He takes credit for all the good Collision content, heavily favors Nick Wayne over Killswitchasaurus, and then tries to hide his failure at Double Or Nothing by going for the trios titles, which he can totally just use Nick and Luchasaurus to win for him when the time comes. Really good promo from Bang Bang Gang in response, and great main event between Bang Bang Gang and House of Black.

If Buddy isn’t actually hurt, he was doing amazing acting tonight. And with how Christian “attacked” Buddy, it seems the story is the same either way: The House will need a new third man to challenge Jay White & The Gunns. Pac showed up to stick it to the Bang Bang Gang, so maybe The Bastard becomes an honorary member of The House of Black just to take the titles. And honestly, what better feud than Christian “Greatest Father Ever” Cage and “The Bastard” Pac, with how “bastard” also has the old definition of “a fatherless child.” And honestly, when is Luchasaurus going to break away from Christian? Should happen during the trios title match.

Really good 8 Man Tag, but I should’ve figured BCC would win, and that Moxley would again tell Naito that he’s done after Forbidden Door. It’s the same thing he’s been saying all week since Dominion last Sunday, he’ll probably keep saying it for those who weren’t paying attention, and I am starting to think that’s just because he’s going to lose in Long Island so Naito can have finish his last run with the world title. And good integration as Lio says hey to Dante before Dante has his match with Lee. Great win for Dante, and I figured he would because you need a true high-flyer in a ladder match. Lio helping fight off Shane Taylor Promotions is also interesting, can’t wait to see which way this splits. Could someone be leaving Top Flight to join STP?

Kyle VS Henry was a strange filler-not-filler, because at least we got the news of an 8 Man Tag happening for Dynamite. It’ll be a great match, with some Forbidden Door build involved as Cassidy will be facing Zack Sabre Jr. and now we’ll be seeing Mark Briscoe, Dante Martin, and Konosuke Takeshita in the ladder match. With that, feels like one of the Kyles takes a loss. Either Roddy purposefully costs O’Reilly or accidentally costs Fletcher. I’m thinking the former so that Roddy can insist O’Reilly still needs him to be relevant. Then they can take that feud through the Summer, maybe even into the Men’s Owen Hart Cup.

Really good promo from Shida, and she’ll be a great part of the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Probably won’t win it, though, with the potential story of Mariah May challenging Toni Storm, or with Willow looking to go back-to-back. Very good match from Hechicero VS Dalton Castle, and it was a rather clever move that The Outrunners were the pseudo-boys that failed to save Castle while Garcia & Menard succeeded. Add Angelo Parker to that and you’ve got an 8 Man Tag right there of Garcia, Menard, Parker & Castle VS Hechicero & The Cage of Agony. Very good No DQ match from Deonna VS Rosa, but as I said earlier in the week, I figured Deonna would win. She’s a Heel, the current champions are Faces, she will make a good challenger to maybe the TBS Championship for All In.

And a great promo from The Acclaimed to call out The Bucks for their continued abuses of power. Cutler being the scrub that takes beatings on behalf of The EVPs is a pretty silly recurring gag, but Daniels getting in on the fun was good stuff. The Acclaimed surely do find a way to win the Title Eliminator in order to force a title match that The Bucks probably cheat to win. This probably still leads to Acclaimed helping Swerve for Blood & Guts, as I sensed on Wednesday.

My Score: 8.8/10

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

Speaking of, Alex doesn’t even wait for the bell, she goes after Toni the moment she’s in a corner! The fans boo but the bell rings and the ref reprimands. Alex fires off haymakers on Storm, then bumps her off buckles. Windsor soaks up the heat, whips Storm back in, then runs up to CHOP! Windsor soaks up more heat, then runs back in, but into a THESZ PRESS! Storm rains down fast hands, then fires up! The fans are with her and Storm gives Windsor a point-blank HIP ATTACK!

Backstage interview with Harley Cameron.

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

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

 

AEW hears from Thunder Rosa and Deonna Purrazzo.

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

Rocky Romero VS Shota Umino!

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

The bell rings and the two shake hands to show there’s sportsmanship here. The fans cheer, the two tie up, and Shota wrenches to a wristlock. Rocky rolls, slips around, facelocks and cravats.

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

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

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

Winner: Satnam Singh, by pinfall

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

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

Pac kicks again, Lethal blocks again, but then Pac kicks Lethal away! Lethal comes back, trips Pac, and steps through, but into a cradle counter! TWO!! Lethal escapes, gets around, back suplex!

Winner: Pac, by submission

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
