The Way is ALREADY out of the Dusty Cup! And furthermore, Kushida has again pinned the North American Champion! Will Kushida be on the path for not just one but two titles in 2021?

 

Pete Dunne speaks.

“Finn Balor, whether you want to admit it or not, you know full well me and you are cut from the same cloth.” Same humble beginnings in the UK, but here’s what’s different. Balor left, while Dunne “built an entire brand. I made NXT UK! And what do I get as a thank you? I constantly get compared to you and what you’ve done.” Balor said everyone wants to face the champ so Dunne needs to get in line. What does he mean by that? Dunne is the REAL threat to the NXT Championship. Balor claims he doesn’t watch the business, but surely he’s been watching Dunne these last few years.

We all know that this is inevitable. And this time, Balor can’t just leave. He will pass the torch. History will speak well of Balor, but will speak better of Dunne. “The day that me and you finally meet, people will finally realize that you’ve just been taking part in MY legacy.” Will the Bruiserweight be the one to dethrone the Prince?

 

Backstage interview with Malcolm Bivens.

What’s he waiting outside of William Regal’s for? Well he and Tyler Rust are waiting for a presentation to Regal. Rust is the future of NXT. He is no rookie, he is the #DiamondintheRust! Rust will be a future North American Champion, a future NXT Champion, and- Rust finishes his talk with Regal and thanks Regal for this, promising that Regal won’t regret it. Bivens is surprised and Rust apologizes, he got here early and already had his talk with Regal. The match is made for tonight! Rust VS Bronson Reed! Bivens isn’t quite as happy about this, that wasn’t the direction Bivens was hoping for. But what’s done is done. Bivens says Rust is going straight to the top and he has a match to win. Rust is the future, but how far in the future will it be when he’s headed for a colossal obstacle?

 

Karrion Kross w/ Scarlett Bordeaux VS Ashante “Thee” Adonis w/ Desmond Troy!

While Dunne wants after the NXT Champion, Mr. Doomsday never lost it! Will Kross get back to the title and bring the apocalypse with him?

The bell rings and Kross circles with Adonis. Adonis kicks but Kross doesn’t flinch! Adonis throws a forearm but Kross just grits his teeth. Adonis runs but into Kross’ arms for a NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX! And a roll through to a wrench and DOOMSDAY SAIDO!! Adonis writhes while Kross roars! The ref checks on Adonis but he manages to get up, only to stagger into ANOTHER DOOMSDAY SAIDO! Kross asks if Adonis hears the clock ticking! Adonis somehow gets back up, only for Kross to say TIME’S UP! BLINDSIDE FOREARM!! Cover, Kross wins!

Winner: Karrion Kross, by pinfall

The countdown to the inevitable has certainly begun, but will it be Kross who takes that title from Balor, not Dunne? But wait, Kross isn’t done! He goes after Troy, who was just checking on his Dusty Cup tag team partner! KROSSJACKET!! Troy flails, but he passes out! Kross shows no mercy, will that be the same for anyone on the path back to the title?

 

NXT takes a closer look at MSK.

Nash Carter tells Wes Lee he’s about to throw off the other tag teams. “MSK, Wes Lee and Nash Carter, number tag team in all of NXT!” How is a Borat impersonation going to do anything? “Because I’m number one!” Very nice, yes! But who are MSK? Nash and Lee came together by fate and now they’re family. They impressed against Isaiah “Swerve” Scott and Jake Atlas, and even other NXT superstars like Ember Moon gives them credit for being so innovative and precise. All the hard work, dedication, blood, sweat and tears… They’re getting teary-eyed just thinking about that Dusty Cup. They’ve fought for so long, and now they’re finally here. This is everything to them. But will they make another impressive impact in the second round?

 

Mercedes Martinez & Toni Storm speak.

They tell Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter, “being best friends means absolutely nothing in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.” Toni and Mercedes don’t need to be friends, they’re just two tough women with a common interest. So for all they care, KC and KC can go preheat an EZ Bake Oven, practice some cartwheels, and then maybe work on a TikTok video. Because what Mercedes did to Io Shirai will be nothing compared to what she and Toni do to them tonight! Enjoy the first round exit, though. Will the combined forces of Mean Mercedes and The Lightning From Down Under be greater then KC Squared?

 

Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Opening Round: Imperium VS Lucha House Party!

Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner have been NXT Tag Team Champions before, but they wish to return to the top and keep the mat sacred! Will Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik change those plans and make the Dusty Cup #LuchaLit?

The teams sort out and the Impeccable German starts against the Golden Lynx. They circle, Barthel corners Lince and pushes him to the buckles but the ref has him back off. Lince comes back but Barthel throws him with an arm-drag! Barthel clamps onto Lince, clubs away on him, then drags him up to a facelock and half hatch suplex! Barthel keeps on Lince with an armlock, hammerlocks it, but Lince reaches back to get up and flying mare free! But Barthel throat chops him down! Barthel glares at Metalik then goes to Lince in an open corner. Barthel ROCKS Lince with an uppercut, then digs his boot into Lince’s head! The ref counts, Barthel lets off and wrenches Lince to a knuckle lock.

Lince breaks free to CHOP, CHOP and whip! Barthel reverses, Lince Quebradas up and over and tags in Metalik! Metalik gives Lince a boost on the springboard RANA!

Barthel wheelbarrows Metalik, Aichner is up top, they combine for a FLYING DDT!! Cover, but Lince breaks it! Fans fire up as Barthel protests, but he drags Metalik up to rock him with rights!

Was this a bracket buster right here?! Metalik and Lince send Imperium packing, and are headed for a battle of lucha libre with El Legado del Fantasma! Will the party keep rolling through the second round?

As for Imperium, ALEXANDER WOLFE returns to NXT USA, and he looks a bit disappointed in Aichner and Barthel. Will the Hatchet Man get his compatriots back on top on behalf of the Ring General, Walter?

 

NXT shares the Fight Pit weigh-in from earlier today.

Tommaso Ciampa steps on the scale to officially weigh in at 201 pounds. Ciampa double guns to show off the lean, mean fighting machine, then Timothy Thatcher takes his turn. Thatcher officially weighs in at 225 pounds, quite the gap between him and Ciampa. Regal wishes both men best of luck, and Ciampa offers a handshake. Thatcher shoves him instead! Ciampa wants after Thatcher but he has to save it for tonight! Will they both leave it all inside the Fight Pit?

History is being made in 2021, and both teams have said their peace. Who will back those words with actions as the Women’s Dusty Classic begins NOW?

The teams sort out, Toni starts with Kayden, and they tie up and go around at the bell. They break, tie up again, go around again, and Kayden waistlocks. Toni pries free, wrenches to a wristlock, but Kayden rolls and rolls to wrench back. Fans rally, Toni spins through and wrenches again, but Kayden slips through and around to headlock.

Give a tiny assist to the Evil Genius, but that was still a spectacular way to finish! Will this be what propels these two to the top of the Women’s Tag Division?

 

Backstage interview with Finn Balor.

He’s heading to William Regal’s office and barges in. Balor says Regal knows why he’s here: Balor wants Pete Dunne. But Balor already knows the games Dunne is playing, they’re all from Balor’s old playbook. So Balor wants to start with Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch. “First I’ll chop off the arms, then I’ll chop off the head.” Regal understands how Balor feels but he has to protect Balor from himself. After what happened last week, Balor can’t fight them all alone. So Regal says Balor should find a tag team partner. Regal should know Balor better than anyone. Balor doesn’t have friends, that’s the old Finn. All Balor has now are enemies. Then keep your enemies closer. Balor leaves, but will he find someone willing to fight alongside him against the would-be Kings of NXT?

 

Isaiah “Swerve” Scott finds Bronson Reed backstage.

Swerve tells Reed to not get in his business again. But then wishes him “luck” out there. Will Swerve’s words get in Reed’s head as he heads for the ring?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

After what happened to both Ashante “Thee” Adonis and Desmond Troy at the hands of Karrion Kross, Adonis’ injury won’t let him compete this Friday on 205 Live, where he and Troy would be competing in the Dusty Cup. Speaking of the Dusty Cup, KC Squared run in and are PUMPED for their win! Congratulations are in order, and they say this is what they told us would happen! No one believed in them, but they said they’d win and go down in the history books. They just beat two of the toughest women in NXT and are going to win the whole thing. Say it again! “We’re going to win the whole thing!” Will KC Squared continue to rise into immortality?

 

Tyler Rust w/ Malcolm Bivens VS Bronson Reed!

Bivens Enterprise’s current client kinda stepped in it, talking to Regal without Bivens being present. But will they keep this from being a huge setback in Rust’s rise to the top? Or is there no getting past Auszilla when you’re across from him in the ring?

The bell rings and Reed circles with Rust. Rust dodges the grapple and kicks, but Reed stays up. Rust gets around to get an arm and wrenches but Reed pushes him off. Rust comes back to get the arm again but Reed is the one with the killer knuckle lock! Rust spins through, keylocks, but Reed powers him away and headlocks. Reed grinds Rust but Rust powers up. Rust tries to power out but Reed holds on tight. Fans rally, Rust pulls hair and puts Reed on ropes. The ref counts, Rust lets off and then kicks the arm! Rust dodges Reed, things speed up and Reed BLASTS Rust out of the ring with that shoulder!

Bivens coaches Rust up and says he’s got this. Rust gets up and gets back in, dodges Reed but Reed blocks the kick to give the kick. Reed trophy lifts Rust then drops him to a GUT BUSTER! And then dead lifts him for a FALL AWAY SLAM! Rust sits on the apron as he catches his breath but Bivens says to use his brains against Reed’s brawn. But Reed drags Rust up, only for Rust to wrench the arm and hotshot it! Rust hurries after the arm, ARMBREAKER DDT!

Whoa, something big is happening backstage! Clearly Toni and Mercedes found out Shirai screwed them over, and they’re after her in the locker room! The refs and security keep them apart but is that easier said than done?

Back to the ring, Rust KICKS at Reed’s arm, and again and again. Rust throws uppercuts to the arm but Reed ROCKS Rust with a right! Rust kicks the arm, throws more uppercuts, but Reed swats the kick and throws a forearm to the chest! Reed clobbers Rust over and over, then whips him to ropes for a BODY CHECK! Fans fire up with Reed as he corner splashes Rust! Reed choke grips to CHOKE SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Rust survives but Reed keeps his cool. Reed climbs up the corner, Rust hurries up and ROCKS Reed with a right! Rust climbs, goes after the arm, and double wristlocks! The ref counts, Reed uses one body shot to get Rust away, but Rust comes back to BOOT him!

Rust wants to fireman’s carry Reed, and gets him long enough for a SAMOAN DROP! Cover, TWO! Rust keeps on Reed with a cravat but the driver is thrown off! Reed drops a back senton, then goes up top! TSUNAMI SPLASH!! Cover, Reed wins!

Winner: Bronson Reed, by pinfall

Rust still shows promise, but Reed is just too much for a normal man! Will Reed crush the competition on his way back to title contention?

 

Another backstage interview with Finn Balor!

Given what Regal told him about taking on Oney & Danny, Balor just needs to find a tag team partner. The Prince says there are some people around here that owe him a favor, so maybe they’ll have a little chat. Will Balor get himself a tag team partner to go after the Bruiserweight’s BritAm Brawlers?

 

Finn Balor finds the Undisputed Era.

Adam Cole says, “Look what the cat dragged in, fellas.” Balor says the cat is looking for payback. They’re all grown men. Kyle O’Reilly knows why Balor is here. Is he in? Or is he still sucking meals through a straw? Roderick Strong gets heated but Cole has him stand down. Balor waits on Kyle’s answer. The answer is yes. Then see you next week. See you then, champ. Kyle and Balor put each other through hell as opponents, will they put Oney & Danny through even worse as allies?

 

El Legado del Fantasma is here!

Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde are already in the ring as Santos Escobar walks around. “A real champion does what he wants, when he wants. You are looking at the champion of champion, the NXT Cruiserweight Champion, El Campeon, Santos Escobar.” Escobar explains to us what a true champion is. “A champion of champions doesn’t have to conquer a curse like Johnny Gargano. A champion of champions doesn’t have a glass jaw like Finn Balor.” Some people try to act like a champion, with badass cars and pretty mamacitas, with all the pomp and circumstance, like Karrion Kross! But when it’s time to prove themselves, they don’t make it to their first title defense!

Escobar has Mendoza hold onto the belt as he continues to boast. “I guess carrying a title is a heavy, heavy chip on your shoulders.” Escobar joins the others in the ring as he says, “I back up every word that I have said. And I have beaten every single person that has been on my path.” Now, even Gran Metalik and Lince Dorado came to NXT to try and destroy Escobar’s empire! But he sent them packing. Now to Raul and Joaquin, they won their first match in the Dusty Cup, and that puts them one step closer to becoming the NXT Tag Team Champions, joining Escobar as the champions of champions. LOS CAMPEONES!

But speaking of LHP, they return! Lince and Metalik don’t want to wait until round tow, they go after Legado already! But Mendoza and Wilde stomp and club them down! They set Lince up for Escobar as he climbs up, but then CURT STALLION trips him up! LHP DOUBLE SUPERKICK Legado out, and Stallion DECKS Escobar on top of them! It seems Escobar forgot that the Lonestar has his title shot up his sleeve! Will Stallion, Lince and Metalik make sure El Legado are NEVER the Champions of Champions in NXT?

 

Backstage interview with Killian Dain & Drake Maverick.

Congratulations are in order for their win on 205 Live and in the Dusty Cup, putting them into the quarterfinals. But they’re next up against MSK. How are they feeling? Maverick speaks up and interrupts Dain, saying that while last year got off to a rocky start for him, this year will be big! Maverick’s got an ally who will always have his back. It’s his best friend and tag team partner, Killian Dain! Maverick knows how great MSK is, they want to come right into the Dusty Classic and win it all, but they won’t! Because the team that will win this will storm into the tournament, go all the way to the finals and stand tall with the trophy! That team is none other than Maverick and Dain!

Dain is impressed by that little speech, and gives Maverick a hard pat on the shoulder. Maverick still doesn’t have Dain’s contact info, though. Will the oddest of odd couples be the ones to shock the world and win the Dusty Cup?

 

Backstage interview with Curt Stallion and Lucha House Party!

A couple months ago, the Lonestar earned his shot at the NXT Cruiserweight Championship. Tonight, he went out there to embarrass Escobar and it won’t stop until he gets his shot! El Legado heads in and referees keep the peace. Escobar says if Stallion wants to interrupt and ruin his message to the world, then Escobar will destroy him. But not now, because he’ll make sure to expose Stallion as the rookie he is NEXT WEEK, with the title on the line! Legado leaves and Stallion finally has his match! Will the fall of Fantasma begin this close to TakeOver: Valentine’s Day?

 

Fight Pit: Timothy Thatcher VS Tommaso Ciampa!

A battle originally meant for New Year’s Evil had to be delayed because NXT wanted to make sure both men went into this as close to 100% as possible. This is only the second Fight Pit ever, but the Professor of Pain has a huge advantage by being one of the two men in the original! Will he teach the Psycho Killer that he has all the grit he needs to stand atop the brand? Or will Ciampa show Thatcher that even he has much to learn?

NXT returns and both men make their entrances. The introductions are made, the rules are reviewed, and the only way to win is by submission or knockout! The bell rings, and this grittiest of grudge matches finally begins!

Ciampa and Thatcher don’t drop down right away, they circle on the upper ledge first. Ciampa pursues but Thatcher backs away, and then they rush each other with fast hands! Ciampa clubs away on Thatcher, has him against railing, and wants to dump him out?! Thatcher resists, Ciampa KNEES him against the railing, but Thatcher comes back with uppercuts! Thatcher ROCKS Ciampa with more EuroUppers, then he chokes Ciampa on the railing! Fans rally and Thatcher throws body shots and forearms! Thatcher brings Ciampa around for more uppercuts, then half hatch suplexes Ciampa! What a thud off the wooden platform!

Thatcher heel hooks a leg and KICKS away on Ciampa’s back! Ciampa keeps from falling over the edge as Thatcher tries to turn him, and Ciampa kicks Thatcher away! Ciampa gets up, runs in and BOOTS Thatcher down! Ciampa kicks Thatcher and throws down haymakers! And then he stomps away at the railing! Thatcher scrambles up but Ciampa CHOPS! Thatcher throws a forearm but Ciampa gives it back! Ciampa CHOPS again, and again! Thatcher is against railing as he grits his teeth, but Ciampa throws more forearms. Thatcher throws body shots and forearms in return, then knees Ciampa in the ribs!

Thatcher drags Ciampa up for more forearms then stalks him along the platform. Ciampa blocks a bump off the railing, pulls on Thatcher’s ear then ROCKS him with a haymaker! Ciampa stomps Thatcher then digs his boot into his head! Ciampa fish hooks Thatcher’s face, then gets the legs to stomp the stomach! Ciampa tries to scrape Thatcher through railing and off the top but Thatcher holds onto railing! Ciampa gets the legs to GUILLOTINE CATAPULT Thatcher into the bars! Thatcher is gasping and crawling while Ciampa applauds himself and pats himself on the back, and NXT goes picture in picture!

Ciampa sees Thatcher crawling and finally heading into the pit. But Ciampa stomps Thatcher’s hands and makes him fall down into it! Ciampa climbs down to join Thatcher and digs his face into the steel fencing! Ciampa lets off and Thatcher crawls, only for Ciampa to dig his face into the fencing on that side! Ciampa CLUBS Thatcher down, but Thatcher goes after a leg! Thatcher gets Ciampa down, digs forearms into Ciampa’s face and goes to turn him. Ciampa resists but Thatcher just smothers him with the forearm. Ciampa tweaks Thatcher’s fingers! Ciampa CHOPS, Thatcher EuroUppers! Thatcher looms over Ciampa, KNEES him in the back, then sits him up for a chinlock.

Ciampa endures as Thatcher grinds him down. Ciampa fights his way up, throws body shots but Thatcher clubs him back. NXT returns to single picture as Thatcher whips Ciampa but Ciampa stops from hitting steel fencing. Ciampa elbows Thatcher back, then throws Thatcher into the fencing! And again! And again! Ciampa then runs side to side to KNEE Thatcher into the steel! The ref checks on Thatcher and starts a count. If Thatcher doesn’t stand up before 10, it’s a technical knockout. Thatcher is up at 6, but Ciampa is on him with underhooks! Thatcher resists, and throws Ciampa into the corner where there’s only bare post!

Ciampa writhes and clutches his shoulder but Thatcher is after that arm! Thatcher stands on Ciampa’s head, pulls on an arm, then drags Ciampa to the corner. Thatcher puts the arm in the gap, but Ciampa kicks Thatcher away! Fans fire up as Ciampa and Thatcher rise. Ciampa CHOPS, and CHOPS, but Thatcher clinches, rams Ciampa into fencing then BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! Thatcher is after the arm for a double wristlock! Ciampa endures, moves around, but Thatcher mounts for a ground ‘n’ pound of forearms! Thatcher tortures the fingers, twists the wrist, and JAMS them into the mat! Ciampa clutches his hand and Thatcher has a sadistic grin!

Thatcher stalks Ciampa but Ciampa throws him into the steel! Thatcher slowly rises but Ciampa is up to trip him! And CATAPULTS him into steel! Thatcher falls back onto Ciampa’s knees! Ciampa has a HALF CRAB! Then he KICKS Thatcher in the back! Ciampa rains down rights but Thatcher kicks back! Ciampa stomps, rains down more rights, then goes after a leg again. Thatcher boots Ciampa into the steel! Thatcher stalks Ciampa, clamps onto the head and has a SLEEPER HOLD! Ciampa flails but there are no ropebreaks when there are no ropes! Ciampa still grabs the steel, and then LOW BLOW MULE KICKS! No disqualifications in the Fight Pit, either!

The ref checks on Thatcher but Thatcher grabs at Ciampa over the ref’s back! Ciampa uses the leverage for WILLOW’S BELL!! But Ciampa can’t win off a cover, he wants to know if that knocked Thatcher out! The ref starts a count, Thatcher is still conscious but he has to get up before 10! The count is 5, then 6! Thatcher uses the cage and drags himself up at 9.9! But Ciampa CLOBBERS him, underhooks, but Thatcher spins out to throw EuroUppers! Ciampa forearms, they’re brawling back and forth with fury! The fans are fired up as Ciampa CHOPS but Thatcher tackles him into steel!

Ciampa throws elbows, has a facelock, and he RAMS Thatcher into steel! FAIRYTALE ENDING!! And then a SLEEPER HOLD!! Ciampa wants Thatcher to pass out, but Thatcher fights up! And scoops Ciampa to RAM him into the steel! Thatcher gets Ciampa in a sleeper hold of his own, but Ciampa uses the corner to go up! Thatcher shoves Ciampa into the corner! Thatcher CLUBS Ciampa over and over and over, then has the leg trapped in the girder! HANGING STRETCH MUFFLER!! Ciampa shouts in pain, he TAPS! THATCHER WINS!!

Winner: Timothy Thatcher, by submission

Undefeated in the Fight Pit, it is truly the site of Professor of Pain’s masterclass in mauling and mangling the human body! Has Thatcher proven once and for all that he is the toughest man in NXT? But perhaps most shocking of all, Thatcher goes over to Ciampa, to nod respect to him! Is the feeling mutual after what they just put each other through?


My Thoughts:

A great episode! We got three great Dusty Cup matches, with some rather surprising outcomes. The Way VS KUSHIDA & Ruff was a great opener, and I really thought it was going to go the other way with Gargano and Theory getting this win so that they’d have something to fall back on if Kushida takes the title from Gargano. But now I feel like it’ll be Gargano retaining so that Kushida and Ruff can continue on in this tournament. Imperium VS LHP was another great match with another surprise. Though, story did dictate we get LHP VS Legado del Fantasma again to continue their story of battling over lucha libre, as also made clear with the Legado segment.

Speaking of that segment, a damn shame Stallion is a nobody to even NXT commentary outside of Vic Joseph, who is on 205 Live’s commentary. This just proves what I’ve been saying about the blending of the brands needs to be stronger because I’m pretty sure many NXT fans were just as lost as Wade Barrett was. We also got a great surprise in Wolfe showing up when last we knew, he was still in the UK for NXT UK. I suppose Walter doesn’t need Imperium backing up as no faction is trying to go after him, but I would’ve thought Wolfe would stay and go after the Heritage Cup. Maybe Wolfe finds his way into the North American Championship scene while he’s here.

The Women’s Dusty Cup had a great introduction from Regal and Beth, and we got a very good opening match between Toni-Mercedes VS KC Squared. Shirai showing up was a great surprise, and naturally she pulls Mercedes and Toni back towards the title story. Kacy should be careful with that unique corkscrew move of hers, she could’ve taken herself out since she was only half on Toni’s back. Raquel & Dakota being in the tournament was as much a given as The Way’s LeRae & Indi were, even with Raquel having that great Last Woman Standing win over Rhea. And I like that we’re getting the newest additions in the tournament already, it’ll be a great way to show their skills from the start.

Speaking of new additions, MSK had a good promo but it didn’t really explain much about who they are, which was supposed to be the point. For one, why is it “MSK?” What does that stand for when their names are “Nash Carter” and “Wes Lee?” Will we finally get that explanation when they win again? And while Dain and Maverick are a great duo and Maverick had a great promo of his own, I don’t think they’re winning against MSK. Rust definitely wasn’t beating Reed tonight but it was a great way to give him and Bivens some story. Bivens is trying to do things in Rust’s best interest but he’s just not getting it, so maybe Bivens needs to get a bit stern with him until Rust is actually champion.

Dunne had a really good promo on Balor, and Balor’s response was natural. I like that Balor said having friends and a team and all that was the old Balor, even older than being in the WWE. But it also makes some sense that he and the UE would team up against Oney & Danny, and with Cole & Strong in the Dusty Cup, Kyle was the obvious choice. Though that’s not to say Kyle was by default, the story between him and Finn made that the natural choice, and it is going to be awesome to see them brawl with the BritAm Brawlers. Kross destroying Adonis & #DesTroy seems to be a way of writing those two out of the tournament and possibly putting a losing team back in, or surprising us with a completely new team. Dare I say that Balor & O’Reilly could end up that team after what they do to the tag champs? Would Balor make history as a two-time Dusty Cup winner?

And then the Fight Pit was a great main event, and a story unique from the original. Staying up top and fighting up there for an extended time was a nice way of changing this match up in only its second edition, and it was a natural choice that Thatcher would win. Thatcher should have the Fight Pit as “his match” just as much as Taker had the Casket Match (among a few others), and it could easily be made so that whoever finally beats him in the Fight Pit looks like a million bucks. I wonder if there will ever be a title match inside the Fight Pit. That’d be pretty awesome, since they already treated this one like a title match with the introductions and dramatic lighting.

My Score: 9.3/10

Six Man Tag: Adam “Edge” Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston VS Top Flight!

The Rated R Chickenhawks or whatever you want to call them are getting ready for their battle with The House of Black at Dynasty! But will they be able to bring some momentum into St. Louis? Or will Action Andretti and the Martin brothers be too fast for them to keep up with?

The trios sort out and Action starts against Mark. Action does a crane stance to mock redneck kung-fu, but Mark strikes his stance. Action kicks, Mark blocks then flips Action to arm-drag him down! Mark has the cording hold to grind Action down, but action fights up. Mark wrenches the wristlock, but Action spins, bridges, and handsprings through and wrenches back. Action headlocks, Mark powers up and out, but Action sunset flips! Mark rolls through to headlock back. The fans rally as Action fights up, powers up and power out, then hurdles. Action runs, handsprings through the hip toss, then whips. Mark reverses but Action goes up and over.

Action keeps moving, ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl and RANA! Then DROPKICK! The fans fire up while Action watches Mark. Action runs to IMPLODER TORNILLO! Cover, TWO! Mark goes to the corner, Action storms up to whip corner to corner, but Mark goes up to FLYING FOREARM! The fans fire up with Mark and he drags Action up.

Action runs up to body shot, KICK, and CHOP! Action whips, Edge reverses but Action handsprings to back elbow! Both men are down, the fans rally up, and Action tags Darius. Darius wrenches to CLUB away on Edge’s arm, then he cording holds. Edge ROCKS Darius, whips, but Darius catches him to a backslide! TWO, but Darius hooks Edge up again for a high stack, TWO! Edge rises, but into a DROPKICK! Darius tags Dante and they double whip Edge to a corner. Dante sends Darius in but Edge puts Darius on the apron. Darius CHOPS Edge, Dante A-LIST LARIATS! Then Darius snap suplexes, Dante slingshot SENTONS!

The fans are torn as Dante stays between Edge and Eddie. Dante is a little surprised, but he ROCKS Edge to a corner. Dante runs in, but Edge dodges the elbow! Edge runs in, Dante dodges to then go up and around, only to get caught! POWERSLAM! Edge brings Dante over, tag to Eddie, and the fans fire up as Eddie HEADBUTTS away on Dante! Eddie CHOPS Dante in a corner and Dante sputters as he falls! Eddie taunts Darius and Action, then he whips Dante. Dante goes up and out to ROCK Eddie from the apron. Dante springboards to CANNONBALL! The fans fire up as both men stand, and Eddie knees low!

Eddie CLUBS Dante in the chest! The fans fire up behind Eddie as he stalks Dante, and he ROCKS Dante while Collision goes picture in picture.

Eddie drags Dante back up, puts him in the corner, and smothers him while he tags Mark. Mark then CHOPS Dante, brings him around, and suplexes high and hard! Cover, TWO! Dante stays in this but Mark stays on him with a back suplex! Tag to Edge, they mug Dante, then Edge brings Dante around to whip at the corner hard! Edge runs up to clothesline, then he fires point-blank clotheslines again and again! The ref counts, Edge still goes all the way to TEN, then he BOOTS Dante down! Edge stalks Dante, drags him up, and tags Eddie. They mug Dante, and Eddie suplexes Dante to hold him up! Dante endures but Eddie SLAMS him down!

Eddie fishhooks Dante to bring him around, then drops an elbow! Cover, TWO! Eddie rains fists down on Dante, but Dante pushes him back. Dante fires body shots, Eddie eggs him on, then Eddie CHOPS Dante to a corner. Eddie gets in Dante’s faceot CHOP again! Collision returns as Eddie CHOPS Dante, sits him down, then taunts Darius and Action before the BOOT WASH! The fans rally behind Eddie as he waits on Dante. Dante stands, but he ducks the backhand to then jump and RANA! Eddie stagger sup, into a JUMP KNEE! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Hot tags to Darius and Mark!

Winners: Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, by pinfall

This trio is ready! They also show respect to Top Flight, but wait! The lights go down! And we all know that means House of Black! Buddy Matthews sarcastically claps from the tron as he says that was impressive. But take a moment to look each other in the eyes, so they can thank each other. Because in 24 hours, the House of Black eradicates all their dreams at Dynasty. Malakai Black steps forward to say they will dig deep. So deep that they reach their deepest, darkest fears. So deep, that Edge will wonder if he’s close to Hell. It will oddly feel familiar. Because let’s face it, for people like Malakai and Edge, Hell is where the heart is.

The lights come back up, but neither edge, Eddie or Mark sweat that warning. Will the AEW TNT Champion, the ROH World Champion and the NJPW Strong Openweight Champion be too good of a hand for the full House to stop?

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ Don Callis VS CJ Esparza!

The Don Callis Family is all in action tonight, and it starts with Hobbs warming up for his showdown on Dynamite. The NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Jon Moxley, called Hobbs out, will Hobbs send him a message back through the #FlippinSweet Mr. CJE?

The bell rings, Hobbs almost laughs at CJE for being less than half his size. CJE fires hands, but Hobbs shoves and CLOBBERS CJE right down! Hobbs drags CJE up, and whips him right out of the ring! Hobbs goes out after CJE, Callis is on commentary to tell us that Hobbs has done things we can’t even talk about on TV. And that’s about to happen to CJE! POWERSLAM on the apron, another POWERSLAM, and then another POWERSLAM! Hobbs puts CJE in, for the TORTURE RACK!! CJE taps, Hobbs wins!

Winner: Will Hobbs, by submission

Callis joins his Powerhouse in the ring, with a mic, to say he has something important to say. The fans boo as Callis says the Don Callis Family is the talk of the pro-wrestling world! They have the Bunkhouse Brawl tonight, so out of concern for his own personal safety, Callis will NOT be at ringside. But everyone is talking about Hobbs VS Moxley for Dynamite. That is what you know, but he’ll tell us what we don’t know. Everyone knows that Callis was directly responsible in 2017 for Kenny Omega to win the then IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Everyone knows the biggest match in the history of Japanese wrestling was Omega VS Jericho in the Tokyo Dome in 2018!

Omega VS Jericho was signed, sealed and delivered by “Don BAH GAWD Callis,” and it was a match that set NJPW on a new course of success that they enjoy to this day. And they thank him for the favor, or “onkei,” he promised he’d come back to ask for that favor. And in Japanese culture, everyone honors those commitments. Callis waited six years to cash in that chip, and he’s been burning up the phonelines to cash in ALL his chips. So he is happy to announce here tonight, that Moxley VS Hobbs on Dynamite is now for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship!! Once again, that IWGP world title will come home to the Don Callis Family!

The fans boo at Callis pulling strings, but now Hobbs has the biggest match of his career! Will the Powerhouse add some gold to the Book of Hobbs’ next chapter?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Hey, everybody. Um, first of all, I just want to apologize to Hook, to Taz, and to all of you watching for my conduct this past Wednesday night. I lost my temper and I pushed Taz to the mat, which made Hook lose his cool, and he came at me. Listen, I don’t blame Hook for that at all. I mean, if somebody put their hands on a person that means as much to me as Taz does to Hook, I would’ve done the exact same thing. And when you had me in the corner, Hook, you said to me, ‘I’m gonna show you just how good I am, any place, anywhere.’ And unfortunately, I’m gonna take you up on that.”

Jericho reveals he went to Tony Khan and asked for an FTW Championship match, and that request was granted. The real unfortunate part is this: The Learning Tree is gonna teach Hook one of the hardest lessons he’s ever gonna learn, and it’s a lesson in humility. A lesson about how hard it is to lose something that means so much to him. But the Learning Tree will make sure Hook is learning not just in-ring lessons but life lessons, as well. Jericho wants to make Hook a better wrestler and a better person. So keep this in mind: Jericho will beat Hook for the FTW Championship, but it will hurt Jericho a lot more than it will Hook.

The Ocho is looking to humble the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, but will he be the one that gets humbled instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

In the homecoming of AEW, the post-Dynasty Dynamite will be live coast-to-coast! No delays for the West Coast, watch it at 5 PM Pacific while East watches it at 8 so we can all celebrate AEW together!

 

The Acclaimed w/ Billy Gunn VS The Gunns w/ Jay White!

Ahead of putting all the trios gold on the line, we get a remix of the… “classic” feud between these teams! Max Caster & Anthony Bowens want to humble Austin & Colten like they did over a year ago, but will this be where the Ass Boys graduate to being men? Caster has a track on deck! “It’s 420, Bowens is all about that incense. They legalized weed, but y’all legalized incest. Damn, guys, y’all progressive with the foreplay, but I’m a kill y’all like that cancer killed OJ. Damn, think you hotter than the North Face? I’m a put you to sleep like Trump at his court date! Back tot he trash, boys. We do it big, y’all’re just the little ass boys!”

The fans fire up as Bowens says, “PEEEOREAAA~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! But before things get going, Tony Schiavone gets on a mic to make an announcement. Gunns, get in the ring. If you walk out on this match- White wants Schiavone to shut up but Schiavone says no, Tony Khan is putting this out. If the Gunns run away from this match, they don’t get their match at Dynasty! Austin says they can just leave now then. Schiavone asks if he even heard a word that was said. But then Bowens TOSSES Colten & Austin in, the bell rings, and it’s on! The Acclaimed fire off hands and stomps!

The fans fire up as Caster & Bowens whip the Gunns into each other! Caster TOSSES Colten, Bowens DECKS Austin, and they get Austin set up for SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! Austin flounders away, but Colten runs in! Caster dodges to send Colten into buckles! Bowens and Austin brawl while Caster rains down fists on Colten! The fans count along, but Austin trips Caster up! Colten flapjacks Caster off buckles, then Austin TOSSES Bowens over barriers! Billie is furious but Colten stomps a mudhole into Caster while Collision goes picture in picture.

Colten snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Austin frowns as the fans taunt him, but Colten tags him in. Austin stomps away on Caster, soaks up the heat, and Colten CHOKES Caster behind the ref’s back! Caster flails, White dares Billy to do something, while holding the golden bat. Austin TOSSES Caster out, Billy watches White closely, but Colten CLUBS Caster. Austin drags Caster up and in, bumps him off buckles, then taunts Billy & Bowens. Colten joins in on that, and Austin ROCKS Caster! And ROCKS him again! Tag to Colten, he stomps a mudhole into Caster then drags him up. But Caster throws body shots!

Caster backs Colten down, but Colten knees low as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Colten has Caster down in a HALF CRAB! Tag to Austin, and he gets the other leg, DOUBLE HALF CRAB! The ref counts, Colten lets go at 4, but Austin still has his half crab. Caster endures, Colten tags in and he gets the half crab back! The fans rally, Caster crawls, and now Colten is out of reach! Colten turns Caster over but Caster BOOTS him away! Austin tags in, grabs lets, but Caster kicks him away! And kicks him again! Austin still tries but Caster BOOTS him! Tag back to Colten, he stays between Acclaimed, only for Caster to send Colten into Austin! Hot tag to Bowens and he rallies on the Gunns!

The fans fire up as the Five Tool Player ROLLING ELBOWS Colten, then ROCKS Austin! “EVERYONE! LOVES THE ACCLAIMED!” Colten runs up, into the kick, mule kick and FAMOUSER! Cover, TWO! Colten survives but Bowens pounds the mat. The fans rally, Colten rises, and Bowens runs up to fireman’s carry! Colten flails, grabs ropes, and Austin holds Colten, too! Bowens breaks that, DECKS Austin then gets around Colten. Colten switches, Bowens switches, but Colten again grabs ropes. Austin again holds Colten, but Caster runs up to DECK Austin! Bowens rolls Colten up, TWO and Bowens is sent into Caster!

Colten rolls Caster, feet on ropes, but the ref sees! The fans cheer as the Gunns get caught! White is furious, but then Bowens fireman’s carries Colten! USHIGOROSHI! And a SHINING WIZARD! Cover, but Austin breaks it! The fans boo but neither man has someone to tag, so they rally up behind Bowens. Bowens runs up but Colten puts him on the apron. Bowens ROCKS Colten, Colten gets in the ref’s face, and Austin anchors Bowens! Bowens kicks Austin away, but Colten runs up to FAMOUSER! Cover, TWO!! Bowens survives and White protests the count! Colten is frustrated, but he tags in Austin and the Gunns bring Bowens up.

The Gunns double whip, then run to BULLDOG! Bowens staggers up, into a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Bowens survives again and Billy laughs at White. Austin calls the shot and tags Colten in. But Bowens BOOTS Colten! Then BOOT to Austin! Caster sneaks a tag, Bowens baits Austin in and Austin clotheslines him up and out! Caster leaps in, Colten gets under, only to run into a fireman’s carry! Colten CLAWS Caster’s eyes then DECKS him! White says finish it, and Colten loads up.

But Austin runs up to trip Caster up! The fans boo, but Bowens CLOBBERS Austin into the ring! Bowens fires off Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK on Colten! SUPERKICK for Austin! Bowens roars, the fans fire up again, and he runs in at Austin! Austin goes up and over, Colten gets in place, 3:10 TO YUMA!! But MIC DROP on Austin!! Colten rolls Caster up, TWO!! Caster escapes, runs back in, but is put on the apron. Caster RAMS into Colten, slingshot sunset flips, but Colten sits on it! White reaches out the bat for Colten to hold onto!! THE GUNNS WIN!!

Winners: The Gunns, by pinfall

The Bang Bang Gang didn’t run away from this fight, but they did steal the victory! Will the Bullet Club pull off an even biggest heist tomorrow night in Dynasty’s Zero Hour?

 

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon and notes that the Don Callis Family has been relentless. Last time we saw Bryan, he was laid out by a brainbuster to the ramp. Tonight, it is a Bunkhouse Brawl against Takeshita & Fletcher, right before Dynasty’s match with Will Ospreay. How is Bryan feeling? Bryan says it sounds like a lot on his plate. Yet here he is! He feels alive! And it does seem like the DCF is up to something. What could that be? Does Don Callis not have the faith in Ospreay he says he does? Another reason Bryan feels alive is because Takeshita dropped him on his head, on the ramp, and yet Bryan gets his revenge tonight!

Then tomorrow, Bryan will test himself against Will Ospreay, a man many people call the best in the world today, and Bryan will test that for himself. But then in walks Ospreay, wanting to apologize. He had nothing to do with what went down on Dynamite or Collision this past week, so he just wants there to be no excuses on either side. He has nothing to do with this stuff. Bryan says sure he doesn’t. Bryan leaves, Ospreay wants to defend his innocence, but will it matter when it’s all said and done?

 

Toni Storm speaks.

It was after the incident with Thunder Rosa on Dynamite that the AEW Women’s World Champion returned backstage. She said to keep this in full color, so that we could see what Rosa did to her. And she also wants to make what she says clear. Rosa wants to be a hero? A martyr? To rally the troops? There is nothing more disgusting than a wrestler that says they’re not selfish. This is a business, not a charity. If Rosa wants to uplift other women, she should’ve stayed a social worker. Rosa may be a fighter, but Storm is a star. Rosa doesn’t want this belt back because she once held it, but because of everything Storm has made it that Rosa never could.

This title shines in Storm’s reflection. This leather smells nice when Storm sniffs it. And Rosa just basks in the sunshine that glows right out of Storm’s arse! Rosa wants to take Storm to Hell? Better check the address. Hell is in Storm’s bedroom and Storm makes love to her demons every bloody night. So don’t worry, at Dynasty, Rosa can just watch. The leading lady is ready for the dramatic climax of this title picture, but will she be the one on top when it’s all over?

 

Bunkhouse Brawl: Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita!

The Blackpool Combat Club has been throwing hands with the Don Callis Family but it’s time to throw rules out the window. Will the American Dragon & Swiss Superman make it through? Or will the Aussie Arrow & Alpha make sure Bryan doesn’t establish his Dynasty?

Winners: Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli, by submission

This Bunkhouse Brawl was brutal, but it goes the Blackpool Combat Club’s way! Bryan has the music stop so he can get on the mic. He had a lot of people asking, “What the hell are you doing having a Bunkhouse match the night before you wrestle Ospreay? It’s because of this. Some people, when they think of Heaven, they think of streets of gold, they think of 40 virgins, but that’s not me! My spirit is a part of this! When I die, my heaven will be standing in this ring, bleeding in front of all you people right here in Peoria, Illinois!” The fans cheer that!

Bryan continues to say that having a whole crew of people trying to break him before he faces one of the best in the world, having everyone tell him he can’t do it… Tomorrow, at Dynasty, Bryan beats Ospreay’s ass! The fans really fire up for that one! The American Dragon may not be 100%, but will he be giving 1000% when that bell rings in St. Louis?

 

Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway speak.

The Galaxy’s Greatest asks, “Do you wanna know what we are? We are fired up!” The Babe with the Power says yep! And you wanna know what “fired up” is long for? F U! Because what that is short for is FIRED UP! Stokely stops them from burning out, because where he’s from, F U means something different. So therefore, F U Brody King! F U to the soon to be former TBS Champion, Julia Hart! Willow asks if a confident champion takes a chain and sucker punches their challenger days before the match. Don’t think so! Willow has Julia’s number this time, so Willow’s gonna do something she’s never done before.

Willow is gonna pick Julia up, hoist her high, and BOMB her through that mat, to send her back to the shadow realm she came from. Tomorrow at Dynasty, Willow walks out the NEW TBS Champion, b*tch!! WORLDSTAR!! OH~! Willow is ready, but will she go from Babe with the Power to the Babe with the Title?

 

Skye Blue VS Leyla Hirsch!

The Chicago Skye is getting darker and darker, but she still chases the bright shine of championship gold. Will she be primed for something after Dynasty? Or will there be a LEGIT contender stepping up instead?

The bell rings and Skye BOOTS Leyla right down! Skye CLUBS Leyla, fires forearms, then lets off to argue with the ref. Leyla trips Skye to rain down fists! Skye gets away, but Leyla whips. Skye reverses to kick low, then runs and runs and hops on, but Leyla blocks the Code Blue to SLAM Skye down, and KNEE her in the face! Skye scrambles out of the ring and fans boo. Leyla is annoyed, but she watches Skye go around the way. Leyla then builds speed to DIVE into a forearm! Skye may’ve baited Leyla in there, but now she drags her out onto the apron, DRAPING TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Skye drags Leyla up and into the ring, then takes her time storming in.

The fans rally, Skye stomps Leyla, then stomps her more. Skye drags Leyla up, reels her in, and snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Leyla hangs tough but Skye drags her up to CHOKE her on ropes! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then she storms up on Leyla again. Leyla ROCKS Skye! And ROCKS her again, and again! Skye DECKS Leyla for it!

Skye grins, whips corner to corner, but Leyla reverses to SAIDO! Leyla storms up, wheelbarrow and GERMAN SUPLEX!

Leyla has the fans rallying up as she takes aim. Skye stirs, Leyla puts her in a drop zone, then goes up. But Skye CLUBS Leyla! Skye then tucks Leyla in for CHEEKY NANDOS! Leyla wobbles on the ropes, Skye turns her around and climbs up after her. Skye fires forearms, brings Leyla up, but Leyla fights the lift! Leyla CLUBS Skye, CLUBS her again and again, then adjusts to SUPER SUNSET FLIP GERMAN SUPLEX!! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Leyla is shocked! Leyla won’t stop, though, she puts Skye in a drop zone again and goes back up. But Skye hits ropes to trip Leyla up! SUPERKICK! Skye roars, and she brings Leyla up for a fireman’s carry! T K O!!

Roll back, DRAGON SLEEPER!! Leyla TAPS, Skye wins!
