Hangman Page & Matt Hardy VS The Hybrid2!

The Cowboy didn’t want to be part of Big Money Matt’s party, but he still signed a contract. It wasn’t the one Hardy handed him, but the contract was put on record. The fine print aside, will the combination of Hangman & Hardy cash in big against Jack Evans & Angelico?

Hardy dodges Evans, Evans hops up and Hardy CLUBS him! Angelico tags in as Hardy brings Evans out for RAZOR’S EDGE! Hardy covers Evans but Angelico is legal, and Angelico KICKS Hardy in the back! Angelico DECKS Hangman, drags Hardy up and bumps him off buckles. Angelico throws jabs and stomps, but lets off as the ref counts. Angelico tags Evans, TH2 coordinate to back suplex DOUBLE STOMP! Evans DECKS Hangman then covers Hardy, TWO!

Evans drags Hardy up and clubs him down, to then tag in Angelico. TH2 mugs Hardy, Hardy hits back and fans rally up. Hardy runs, Evans traps him at the ropes, Hangman protests as Hardy fights TH2 off, but Evans kicks and hotshots Hardy into Angelico’s roll up! TWO!! Angelico shifts around and floats to a facelock. Hardy fights up, Angelico brings him around and tags Evans. TH2 mugs Hardy, Evans brings him around and bumps him off buckles. Evans whips corner to corner, handsprings in but into a kick from Hardy!

DELETE!” with Hardy as Angelico staggers up, into the TWIST OF FATE! Cover, Hangman & Hardy win!

Winners: Hangman Page & Matt Hardy, by pinfall

That was a bit harrier than their first time together, but Hardy and Hangman are 2-0! Is this the beginning of a beautiful partnership?

Hardy gets a mic to say, “Ladies and gentlemen, give it up for Hangman Adam Page!” How great does he look? Like a million bucks! No, a BILLION bucks! Hardy is excited because Hangman is going to make a LOT of money! That means Hardy makes 30% of a LOT of money! Hangman made the right decision, Hardy is proud and happy that Hangman signed with him! Hangman borrows the mic to say Hardy probably didn’t pay attention at the bar. But Hangman had some good friends once tell him, “Always keep an extra set of papers rolled up in your jacket.” Hangman pulled a Brodie Lee?!

Hardy realizes he didn’t read the contract Hangman signed. So now let’s get a legal team to let us know just what was in that contract! Jackson Duvall comes out and Hardy is okay if Hangman added some pork. Jackson gives Hardy the contract and Hardy looks it over. Wait, wait, wait. This isn’t a talent representative contract. This is a match contract for AEW REVOLUTION!! Hangman VS Hardy 1v1?! And if Hardy loses, Hangman gets 100% of HARDY’S earnings for the first quarter of 2021?! What the heck, you carny!? You bamboozled him!! Well okay Hardy was doing similar to Hangman.

But if that’s how it is, then Hangman being an honorable man needs to put something of equal value on the line! If Hardy wins, he gets 100% of Hangman’s earnings from this first quarter! Hangman didn’t see that coming. But Hangman thinks they might have themselves a big money match. They shake on it, but Hardy says Hangman’s finished. Jackson attacks Hangman?! Why?! Because it was ISIAH KASSIDY in the costume! And Hardy offers TH2 $3700 (a rather odd sum) if they kick Hangman’s ass! Kassidy and TH2 rain down fists and stomps on Hangman! But here comes the DARK ORDER!!

Negative One rallies the troops while Alex Reynolds & John Silver run off Kassidy and beat up TH2! Numbers 5, 10, Evil Uno & Stu, and even Cabana, get Hardy and his henchmen to leave the ring! Fans are fired up as Cabana even uses a shoe to beat Angelico! Alan Angels glares at Hardy and fires off haymakers! Hardy throws Angels away, Hangman slingshots in! Hardy narrowly avoids the Buck Shot and gets away with Kassidy! Hangman looks to his friends in the Dark Order, is he going to join them after all? Will Hangman cash in or bust against Big Money Matt at Revolution?

 

Backstage interview with The Inner Circle.

At least, the six men left, after Sammy Guevara quit. But Alex Marvez focuses on asking Santana & Ortiz about their first opportunity at THE AEW World Tag Team Championships since joining All Elite Wrestling 18 months ago. FINALLY, someone says it! 18 months, and Ortiz finally realized why that is: FEAR. Santana says it is fear within management, and within every tag team that has ever held those titles. “But guess what? The time for running is over! It’s time to pay y’all’s dues to the illest! And here we are to collect!”

MJF interjects to vent about last week. Sammy Guevara crossed the line with zero evidence! Because he thought MJF was trying to frame Sammy with a recording? What kind of a yutz do you take MJF for? Do you think MJF would secretly record you when there is always a camera on him? And yet, despite all these facts staring Sammy straight in his stupid, squinty little face, Sammy has yet to “nut up and apologize” like a man! Chris Jericho tells MJF to shut up about this already! They know what MJF was up to because everyone was watching week after week. MJF was goading Sammy and pushing him over the edge! Congratulations, it worked, Sammy left them. Good job, MJF, this is your fault.

But the majority of this is on Sammy. Damn right! Shut up, MJF. Jericho wanted MJF and Sammy to be in each other’s faces so they could make each other better. MJF figured that out, Sammy did not. And after bad choice after bad choice, the dumbest choice of all was quitting the Inner Circle. When you walk out on the Inner Circle, you walk out on Jericho, and for that reason, Sammy is DEAD to Jericho! Jericho never wants to hear that name again! But onto tonight! Santana & Ortiz will win those AEW Tag Team Championships and bring gold back to the Inner Circle! Let’s go win some championships! But will Proud ‘n’ Powerful win those titles only to defend them against #Y2MJF at Revolution?

AEW has footage of Jade Cargill’s training with Shaq.

This time she’s on the court, and using basketball skills to get her cardio and agility up. She even shows that she can shoot and lay it up with the best of them. Will she and Shaq be in shape to dunk on Cody Rhodes and Red Velvet?

 

Orange Cassidy w/ Chuck Taylor VS Luther w/ Serpentico!

Freshly Squeezed crashed the Superbad wedding and liberated the Kentucky Gentleman all at once, and the Best Man wants to make him pay! Will Cassidy be able to focus on the Original Death Dealer knowing Miro is lurking?

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

That was almost a tag match with Serpentico and Chuck getting involved, but either way, Cassidy wins big! Will he be more than ready to actually try against Miro?

 

Team Taz heads to the ring!

Taz leads his son, Hook, and The Machine, Brian Cage, to the ring then gets a mic. “Alright so, all week, all’s I’m seeing all week long on AEW social media is Sting is gonna call out Team Taz. That’s all I’m hearing!” But obviously Team Taz is down a few men because Sting’s stupid snow went down south! But hey, Taz says there’s no better time for Sting to come out and call them out! It’s only three, not five! Where you at, Stinger?! Ask and you shall receive, here comes the crow, the snow and the icon! Sting has his bat as he goes to the ring, and Taz has the music shut off.

Taz says Sting stepping in this ring is the worst thing he’s ever done. Sting needs that bat, because without it, he’s done! Darby Allin literally got dragged around in “FTW World,” and Sting needs back-up. Sting’s had that bat for years- Sting tosses the bat aside?! Sting throws off the jacket, too! Oh so he’s gonna be a badass! Sting throws the coat at Cage and fires off haymakers! Sting puts Cage in a corner and stomps away, but Hook uses Sting’s own baseball bat to choke Sting! Sting throws Hook off and JAMS him with the bat, but Cage mule kicks Sting! Cage reels Sting in, puts on out, and POWERBOMBS Sting!! Taz says he told Sting this would happen!

Will the Icon even be able to make it to Revolution? And if he does, will there be more than a baseball bat in his arsenal?

 

Eddie Kingston speaks.

“This is for you people out there that don’t get it! I requested for this match!” Kingston wants tonight’s Six Man, “because there’s three demons I gotta deal with!” One: Lance Archer has been after Kingston since the Casino Battle Royal! They had a Lumberjack match, Archer won, but that doesn’t sit right. Two: Rey Fenix, “a waste of space,” who Kingston never wanted in The Fam! He only ever wanted Fenix’s brother, Pentagon. But then Fenix turns away from them, gets Penta to turn on Kingston, and he thinks he’s not gonna pay for that?!

And then there’s Moxley. An old friend. Moxley is the one Kingston needs to get rid of the most. Kingston can’t get rid of him with drinking, pills, women or whatever. He can only get rid of that demon by beating him up. Will Kingston exorcise his demons? Or will they drag him down and break him down to end tonight’s Dynamite?

 

AEW Media catches up with Kenny Omega and company.

The AEW World Champion is holding a copy of the Young Bucks’ auto-biography, and is telling a group of people that he feels “so blessed.” Don Callis and Michael Nakazawa are with him and are all smiles, until Alex Marvez walks in. That’s not okay, Marvez! A new low from AEW. Omega is talking to a kindergarten class as he offers to read them a story. This is about his two best friends, the Young Bucks. Do the kids know who they are? Yes, they’re the AEW World Tag Team Champions! And before they start, any questions? A boy asks if there are any pictures in the book. Well, uh, there’s one on the cover. Young Bucks, Killing the Business.

Another boy asks if the Bucks are in love. Well, uh, the cover kinda gives that appearance, doesn’t it? But the Bucks are brothers, so on that level, they love each other as family. Now to the story. Omega reads his favorite part. When Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega eventually wrestled in the Tokyo Dome on WrestleKingdom 12, “business went up drastically!” Does anyone know what “drastically” means? No. It means, “by a lot!” Like, a lot a lot. All because of Omega! They made a lot of money! Callis says time is running short, “Uncle Kenny” has to get going. Aw, so sorry! The kids cheer for Kenny and Omega likes that, but he wants them to cheer as young champions. Such a good class! Omega hopes to be back real soon!

On his way out, Omega asks his PR manager, Margaret, how they’re doing. They’re doing great! His numbers are way up! The humanitarian angle is working wonderfully. They’re finally getting that under 10 demographic they’ve been aiming for! Speaking of, one little boy wants to play with Omega. Callis says they can’t, Uncle Kenny’s gotta get going. But the kids can play with Uncle Nakazawa! YAY~! No, the kids don’t like Nakazawa! They want Omega! One kid even kicks Nakazawa in the shin! The kids gang up on Nakazawa but Omega and Callis can’t be part of this so they’ve gotta get going. Will Nakazawa be okay? Will Omega continue to build his brand across all ages?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Young Bucks VS Santana & Ortiz w/ The Inner Circle!

Despite having to defend these titles at Revolution, Matt & Nick Jackson don’t want to wait! They want payback on the Proud ‘n’ Powerful for eliminating them in the tag team battle royal before going after #Y2MJF, but will they only end up ensuring the Inner Circle has these titles either way?

The self-proclaimed Best Tag Team in the World want to #FindTheirRedemption and get back to those tag titles we just saw be defended. But will the reunited Sydal Brothers, Matt & Mike, prove that blood is thicker than even a resume like FTR’s?

The teams sort out and Cash Wheeler starts with Mike, and the two circle as fans rally up. They tie up, Mike gets around but Cash standing switches to back suplex high and HARD! Cash drags Mike up, bumps him off buckles, and tags in Dax Harwood. Dax stomps and uppercuts Mike, then CHOPS him! Dax whips Mike corner to corner, Mike goes up and over, and Mike handsprings to dropkick Dax down! Tag to Matt, Matt ROCKS Dax, DECKS Cash and fires off kicks on Dax! Matt throws forearms, a SUPERKICK, and then tags Mike in. The Sydal Brothers coordinate, and they have Dax hanging for the DOUBLE STOMPS!

The Sydals double whip, Cash tags in before Dax gets a double back drop! Cash runs in but into double JUMPING KNEES! Mike shoves Dax to a corner to CHOP and forearm on repeat! Dax shoves him away, Mike runs back and hops up, but Cash runs up behind him! Cash hits a SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Cash shifts around, has the foot, but Dax is unavailable to tag as AEW goes picture in picture.

Cash drags Mike up, whips him and CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Mike flops out of the ring, Cash soaks up the heat while mocking the Zen lifestyle of the Sydals. Dax is back and he tags in to fetch Mike and CHOP him against the apron. Dax puts Mike in, drags him up and reels him in for a snap suplex! Then Dax drops a leg, drops an elbow, and drops the headbutt! Cover, TWO! Dax drags Mike away from Matt to throw a BIG uppercut! Tag to Cash, FTR has Mike in the ropes for a DOUBLE ROPE GUILLOTINE! Cash soaks up more heat and drags Mike up to fireman’s carry. Cash flips Mike over for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!

Cash drags Mike into a half nelson chinlock and thrashes him about! Mike endures, Cash grinds him down and smothers him into the mat! Cash puts as much weight as he can on Mike but Mike endures and fights up! Mike reaches for Matt but Cash keeps him away! They go around and around and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Dax keeps Mike from Matt with a facelock. Mike blocks Dax’s suplex attempts, then tags in Matt! Dax gets Mike up but Matt saves him, and then Matt gives Mike the boost to headscissor Dax down! Cash runs in, Matt ROUNDHOUSES him down! Matt fires off kicks on Dax, then sobats Cash! Dax swings but Matt ducks to KNEE and LIGHTNING SPIRAL! Dax bails out to save himself but Matt fires up with the fans. Matt aims and slingshots to wreck FTR, then Mike is up top to ARIHARA MOONSAULT! Direct hit on FTR but Matt hurries to get Dax in. Matt shoots the half and covers, TWO!

Matt throws forearms on Dax, Dax throws them back! Matt KICKS, Dax forearms, Matt fires off CHOPS! Dax ducks the kick, suplexes to rebound Matt on ropes but Matt slips out and lands on his feet! Matt waistlocks, O’Conner roll, TWO! Cash UPPERCUTS Matt at the ropes, but the ref misses it! Cash tags in, FTR drags Matt up and whips him corner to corner. Dax whips Cash in and he comes in hot, but Matt dodges! Cash hits buckles hard, Matt ROCKS Dax then elbows Cash! Matt CHOPS away on FTR, reels Cash in but no tornado DDT! Dax gets Matt with a POWERBOMB! Cash drags Matt up to SNAP DRAGON! Bridging cover, but Mike breaks it!

Dax drags Mike up but Mike ROUNDHOUSES him! Cash shoves Mike right out but Matt rolls Cash up with a bridge! TWO and Cash gets to a corner, Matt runs in, is put outside but Mike tags in! DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSES for Cash, and Matt goes up top! DOUBLE METEORA! Mike is up top, HUGE SPLASH! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Cash survives but Matt hurries up top. Mike drags Cash around, but Dax trips Matt up! Mike swipes at Dax but Dax gets away. Cash waistlocks, Mike switches but Cash switches back, to back suplex! Mike lands on his feet, headlocks Cash, but Dax tags in as Cash powers out! Mike slides under FTR but runs into the BIG RIG!! Cover, FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

Tully Blanchard couldn’t be here because of weather, but FTR did it by #FollowingTheRules! Or at least, skirting them. And while the medic wants to check on Mike, FTR grab the med kit! They bring out SCISSORS! They want to cut Mike Sydal’s hair! But the lights go out!? And the titantron turns on, and Luchasaurus’ damaged mask is on a table! But Luchasaurus has his horns back!! And when the lights come on, Jurassic Express is in the ring!! Jungle Boy and Marko Stunt go after Dax while Luchasaurus fires off on Cash! Fans fire up as Luchasaurus and JB whip FTR, to SUPERKICK and TAIL WHIP!!

JB gets Dax in the SNARE TRAP! Luchasaurus gives Cash the JURASSIC CHOKE SLAM! Fans are fired up as the boys and their dinosaur stand tall over FTR! Will Cash & Dax #FeelTrueRegret for thinking they could humiliate and intimidate these three?

 

AEW sets up next week’s Dynamite!

After the trick Hardy played on Hangman, the Cowboy goes after Isiah Kassidy in a 1v1 match! After Monday’s YouTube broadcast, we will know all of the semifinalists in the AEW Women’s World Title Eliminator Tournament, leading to the first semifinal match on Dynamite! Team Taz tunes up for Revolution as Brian Cage & Ricky Starks take on the Varisty Blondes, Griff Garrison & Brian Pillman Jr! And after the chaos that happened after the AEW World Tag Team Championship match, Brandon Cutler and Jake Hager go 1v1! Will the Dungeon Master avenge his friends?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“Eddie Kingston. As requested, this Six Man Tag tonight. Always with a stick up his ass.” Kingston has problems with Archer, with Fenix and with Moxley. Even after all this time, even after everything Moxley and Kingston put each other through, Moxley is still the only one here who actually cares about Kingston. But Moxley will whoop Kingston’s ass as many times as it takes to get that through to him. Moxley has a lot of business. After tonight, he looks to NJPW Strong, 2/26, where the whole world will watch him “attempt to break Kenta’s neck and put his ass in the ground for good.” Then will be the rest of the sons o’ bitches when Mox takes back his AEW World Championship from Omega!

Moxley told Omega there is no running or hiding. “As long as it takes to settle the score, you’re still in my crosshairs.” That time is coming closer and closer “to pull the trigger.” Will Moxley still be IWGP United States Champion when it’s time to come back for #PrettyPlatinum?

 

Six Man Tag: Eddie Kingston & The Fam VS Jon Moxley, Rey Fenix & Lance Archer w/ Jake the Snake!

The Butcher, The Blade & The Bunny are still loyal to the Mad King, perhaps blindly so. But they vow to help him get rid of all of his enemies in one fell swoop! But will it be easier said than done against the Maniac, the Firebird and the Murderhawk Monster?

The trios don’t even sort out, they just brawl! Archer throws Butcher out, Fenix DECKS Blade, and they all brawl while Moxley chases Kingston out of the ring!

Butcher taunts Moxley’s team before hitting a corner splash! Tag to Blade, Butcher feeds Moxley to the POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Blade drags Moxley, whips him to the corner, but Moxley hits Kingston and Butcher! Moxley spins Blade around to hit a neckbreaker! Hot tag to Archer!

Archer rallies on The Fam, DECKS Kingston but Blade throws a haymaker! Archer doesn’t even blink, he just ROCKS Blade! Then choke grips Blade to OVERHEAD TOSS him to a corner! Archer runs in to back elbow, runs corner to corner to elbow again, then clinches for a BELLY2BELLY! Archer hauls Blade back up, goes up the corner and fans fire up as Archer walks the tightrope.

Archer stalks Blade, drags him over, and tags in Moxley. Moxley runs in to RAM a shoulder into Blade, then he snapmares Blade to run and Penalty Kick!

Tag to Moxley and he stares Kingston down before running in to forearm smash Blade! Moxley brings Blade up to back suplex, then drop an elbow! Cover, but Kingston drags Moxley off it! Kingston flips Moxley off and Moxley gives it back. The ref keeps the peace, Moxley stomps Blade and drags him up to wrench the arm. Tag to Archer, Archer throws a stiff knee and a clubbing forearm! Archer clamps onto Blade’s ears and pulls! The ref reprimands, Archer lets go to slap Blade, and he eggs Blade on. Blade claws Archer’s face but he doesn’t flinch, and instead smashes Blade off his knee!

AEW returns to single picture as Archer runs, but Kingston grabs his foot! Archer drags Kingston up but Kingston hotshots him! Blade and Butcher DOUBLE SHOULDER Archer down! They put Archer in the corner to mug him, Butcher throws haymakers and Kingston holds Archer’s foot down! The ref reprimands them all but Butcher CHOPS Archer, then digs Archer’s face into the ropes! Butcher stomps and ROCKS Archer, but the ref has to keep Moxley back. Butcher grinds forearms into Archer’s head, but the ref counts. Butcher stops, but Archer SLAPS Kingston!

Winners: Jon Moxley, Rey Fenix & Lance Archer, by pinfall

Kingston’s “demons” beat him down and won out in the end! Moxley tells his best frenemy that he’s up for it any time, but then the GOOD BROTHERS attack! Gallows & Anderson beat Moxley down for what he said about coming after Omega! And speaking of, Omega heads to the ring! “Hey, Jon! Wow, don’t look so tough right now, now do ya? If it’s not a junkyard, you’re looking kinda pathetic.” Omega promised he wouldn’t come out here, but he’s making an exception.

Omega holds up papers and asks if Moxley has an idea of what they are. This is Omega’s “late Valentine’s Day gift” from Tony Khan. Omega says this is Omega’s title contract that has a rematch clause slipped inside. But no worries, Omega is in a giving mood because he’s such a charitable guy. So Moxley WILL have his automatic rematch for the world title, and it’ll even be at Revolution. But Omega still holds the right to name the stipulation. If the Biz Cliz keeps beating Moxley up, he’ll just keep coming back. If they beat him in a regular wrestling match, Moxley will be all jealous and still come back.

Moxley wants to talk about breaking necks and putting people in the ground?! Is that what Omega will have to do to Moxley!? In that case, how about this? Omega VS Moxley, in an EXPLODING BARBED WIRE DEATH MATCH?! Moxley wants to talk about having a trigger to pull, but Omega is the loaded gun! Omega gets too close to Moxley and Moxley headbutts him! Gallows & Anderson club Moxley down, Omega V-TRIGGERS! And then V-TRIGGERS again! Omega is furious!

“Look what you did to me! Show him the belt!!” Omega wants Moxley to look at the cut he just put on Omega’s head, and the shining AEW World Championship belt! Omega vows that Moxley will NEVER get the title back! And it’ll only get worse from here! Will Omega not only end Moxley’s career but his life at Revolution!?


My Thoughts:

This was a wild episode for AEW, and they’re really powering up the Revolution card. For one, with not having Cody & Velvet VS Shaq & Jade on the PPV, they’re more or less throwing a ladder match together. It will be a great match just based on the three we know in Cody, Pentagon and Scorpio, and I would think they’ll “determine” the other three through matches for something to put on the 2/25 card or even 3/3 card. But just as I felt with the constant Casino Battle Royal or Casino Ladder match, etc, it just seems like they aren’t sticking to the rankings system they’ve established. The TNT Champion should face the contenders outside of the #1, who of course faces the world champion. Now, if there were tied records, I could understand needing a match to name a challenger, but it doesn’t sound like there’s much of that in AEW, despite a lot more 50-50 booking than you’d think.

The segment with Sting “calling out” Team Taz didn’t go quite the way I expected. Starks and Hobbs being stuck outside of Florida aside, I did not think Sting was going to fail to stand tall tonight. Though, I suppose he couldn’t stay strong forever, because then the math would mean he and Darby lose at the PPV. But I did not think Sting’s first bump in a long time would be a POWERBOMB from Brian Cage! That looked rougher than normal, but I suppose Sting made it through that or news might have gotten out he was hurt. Maybe that was to test the waters, so to speak. If Sting can take that, then I suppose he is more than ready to take other bumps.

Hangman & Hardy had a really good tag match with TH2, and I actually like the swerve on Hangman’s swerve. Yes, Hangman tricked Hardy into having a match with a kayfabe crap ton of money on the line, but obviously Hardy would have privately realized something in the last week. He got the drop on Hangman, but the Dark Order reinforced Hangman, so I have a feeling the Dark Order will have a part to play at Revolution. Cassidy had a quick match with Luther, and I like that Chuck Taylor and Serpentico had parts to play, too. Cassidy VS Miro will be a lot of fun, whenever it happens, but I’m thinking Trent returns to help Cassidy win and get payback on Miro.

Deeb VS Riho was an incredible match, and all for the opening round. Riho will be taking on Thunder Rosa in the next round, and as great as it will be, I have a feeling Rosa wins because Britt Baker might make it to the US Bracket finals. Anna Jay VS Britt Baker and Nyla Rose VS Tay Conti being on a separate YouTube broadcast from AEW Dark is fine, but I feel like those matches would’ve helped give reason to watch Dark. I feel like Britt and Nyla are the given winners, and then we’d get a rare Heel VS Heel, which would be pretty cool for AEW to give us. FTR VS the Sydals was a great match, and we got a great payback attack from Jurassic Express. The Six Man Tag on 3/3 is going to be a lot of fun, and I have a feeling Tully takes the pin from Marko Stunt so that the others stay strong.

The AEW World Tag Team Championship match was an awesome match, and there was a lot of good story from the Inner Circle tonight. Jericho actually getting on MJF for egging Sammy on was good detail for how there is a lot of dysfunction still in the group. Jericho saying Sammy is dead to him was a bit of a surprise, but I suppose Jericho being selfish is just standard. The Bucks win so that we still get them VS Y2MJF, but the Inner Circle mostly standing tall after makes a lot of sense. I also like how it tied into the story with Omega & The Good Brothers. Callis couldn’t risk Omega going out there and getting hurt but the Good Brothers could. This can easily be used to bring us back to Bucks VS Gallows & Anderson, tag titles optional, maybe for Double or Nothing.

The Six Man Tag was really good, very chaotic and gritty, as it should be given the six men in it. Moxley’s team wins, of course, as Moxley needs to be strong going into both his match under NJPW and now going towards Revolution. Omega VS Moxley 3 being under such an insane stipulation is, well, insane, but they were able to deliver both in the “unsanctioned” match and the standard singles match, so going balls to the wall is going to just bring Revolution to a new level, provided no one actually dies. And honestly, that could go either way, partially dependent on Moxley VS Kenta, but I would think it’s still a 51-49 Omega win because there is still so much this Heel Omega can do while also champion.

My Score: 9.5/10

Six Man Tag: Samoa Joe, Hook & Katsuyori Shibata VS The Premier Athletes w/ Mark Sterling!

Three dangerous men joined forces out of respect for what each of them can do, but they aren’t getting much respect from others. But will the Samoan Submission Specialist, The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil & The Wrestler beat some respect into Tony Nese, Ariya Daivari & Josh Woods? Or can the Premier Athletes actually put their money where their muscles are?

Nese tags Daivari and they mug Hook with haymakers! The fans boo but Nese lets off. Daivari brings Hook up, bumps him off buckles, then CHOPS! Daivari snapmares Hook, clamps on a full nelson and leans on the hold. The fans rally and Hook fights up, and he pries the hold open! But Daivari waistlocks! Hook elbows free, and hot tags to Shibata! Shibata storms in but he has to slow down as Daivari gets away to his corner.

Woods reaches out, so Daivari says here’s something for The Wrestler. Daivari tags Woods in, he steps to Shibata, and they fire forearms! The fans rally up as the shots keep going, then Shibata gets the edge! Woods trips Shibata, goes for an arm, but Shibata slips right around to go for the arm! Woods goes for Shibata’s arm, but Shibata goes after Woods again! Woods powers through to get the arm, but then Shibata slips around, changes sides, and has the ARMBAR! Woods scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as Shibata lets off and CLUBS away on Woods. Shibata cranks the arm for a double wristlock but Woods throws body shots!

Shibata leg scissors to trip Woods! KNEEBAR! Nese storms in to stomp Shibata! The fans boo, Woods tags Nese in. Nese stomps Shibata around, then taunts the fans. The fans boo but Nese CHOPS Shibata. Shibata doesn’t flinch! Nese CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Nese throat chops! Nese whips, Shibata reverses, but Nese ELBOWS back! Nese goes up and up and QUEBRADAS, but Shibata steps aside! Everyone’s learning from Joe now! The fans fire up and Joe smiles. Shibata then tags Joe in, and he stalks Nese. Nese rises up, into the JABS! JABS! JABS! Joe fires off fast hands, CHOPS Nese down, but Sterling gets on the apron!

Joe scares Sterling off, but this is all a delay tactic so Nese can crawl, and Woods can HOTSHOT Joe! The fans boo but Nese brings Joe around, BULLDOG HOTSHOT! Joe staggers, Daivari tags in! Nese & Daivari mug Joe, run, and DOUBLE SHOULDER TACKLE! Daivari covers, ONE!! Joe is still tougher than that! Woods tags in, he and Daivari mug Joe, and then Woods CLUBS away on Joe’s chest! Cover, ONE!! Joe is still tougher than that so now Daivari tags back in. Daivari and Woods mug Joe, then Daivari stands Joe up. Daivari throws hands, but Joe hits back!

Winners: Samoa Joe, Hook & Katsuyori Shibata, by submission

The Premier Athletes did prove they’ve got guts, but not enough to overcome this trio of warriors! Will Joe, Hook & Shibata find themselves on the road to trios gold?

 

The Bang Bang Gang speaks.

Juice Robinson says, “Apparently… AEW isn’t gonna recognize the fact that I was anointed one-quarter of the AEW Unified Trios Champions!” Austin says he’s pissed, Colten confirms that is true, and adds that apparently, The House of Black still gets their shot. At least, once Buddy’s leg gets better. And apparently, PAC cares!? He interrupted their match, he pushed Juice off the top, and then he flipped Austin off! But that’s good. Because their fearless leader, Jay White, is off training his butt off. You thought EIGHT abs was something? Jay will be coming back with TEN! SO Pac, you better hope you don’t see The Switchblade in the Owen Hart Cup!

Because then, The Bastard will do more than just “care” now. He’ll cry to sleep! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya! GUNS UP! Bullet Club Gold is taking aim at a lot of different targets, but will they be able to hit the mark?

 

Private Party VS Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Bryan Keith!

Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy have been busy this week. They got called out by The Learning Tree on Dynamite, they put in a fast and furious match last night on Rampage, and now they’ll be entering the “Jericho Vortex” when they take on Big Bill and the man himself. But will Quen & Zay teach Jericho something about not looking down on the younger guys? Or will Jericho ruin the fun #ForTheWorld?

AEW takes a closer look at Ultimo Guerrero.

Excalibur narrates that as “one of the fiercest luchadores Mexico’s ever produced, Ultimo Guerrero is among the most highly decorated athletes to compete in CMLL’s 90 year history.” A SIX-TIME CMLL World Tag Team Champion, a FIVE-TIME CMLL World Trios Champion, and a TWO-TIME CMLL World Heavyweight Champion, Ultimo Guerrero now has his eyes set on Kazuchika Okada and the AEW Continental Championship. Ultimo was Okada’s mentor while on excursion in Mexico, and has watched The Rainmaker’s rise ever since. Will Okada withstand the challenge of his former mentor? Or will Ultimo have a golden ticket in time for the Forbidden Door?

2024 Women’s Owen Hart Cup Quarterfinal: Willow Nightingale VS Serena Deeb!

The Babe with the Power won the entire tournament last year, and even won titles between then and now, but she’s also lost between then and now. However, there’s motivation beyond repeating as the Queen of Harts here, because former friend Kris Statlander is waiting in the semifinals for the winner of this match. Will Willow pass the Professor of Pro-Wrestling’s test to take on The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor? Or will there be no mercy in Deeb’s Dojo?

Cover, Willow wins!

Winner: Willow Nightingale, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

Willow passes the Professor’s test, and now she’s not only one step closer to repeat Owen Hart Cup finals, she’s going to get her grudge match with Kris Statlander! Will Willow also get her revenge? Or will Kris add to the list of things she’s done to ruin Willow’s life?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage, and they’re really stuffing these episodes lately. For one, two good tune-up matches. Fenix of course beats Turbo Floyd easy, and we get a great match out of Takagi VS Fox. But again, of course Takagi won so he has momentum, and I figured Bryan would show up. Bryan will surely have his own great tune-up match as part of a Forbidden Door go-home episode, and then we’ll get an awesome match out of Bryan VS Takagi in the Owen Hart Cup. Great opening tag match from Private Party with Metalik & Komander, and while Metalik & Komander are great, Private Party gets the momentum going into their match tomorrow night on Collision.

As such, of course Jericho and team show up, but the brawl was a bit of a surprise. Chances are that means Jericho & Bill win with help from “Bad Apple” Bryan Keith. Great TNT Championship qualifier from Lio and Action, and I like this tension they’ve kept between Lio and Top Flight. Given how AEW handles contracts and departures, there really never was closure behind Lio leaving AEW for NJPW, and then that means there was no explanation why Lio left Dante high and dry and that has to be the kayfabe by default, but at least they’re making up for it now. Lio and Dante interacting will be a great part of the ladder match in itself, but I’m still leaning towards Jack Perry winning the title.

And great main event from Willow and Deeb. Deeb is great, she deserves something, but sadly there are a lot of other great wrestlers in the AEW Women’s Division. And with story taking precedence, of course Willow won here. Willow VS Kris will be great, and could go either way. However, also because of story, Mariah May is surely going to win this tournament so she can take on Toni Storm for the Women’s World Championship. Plus, Kris and Willow can feud through the summer, escalating things to something really wild to then give the winner of that momentum going towards the world title, perhaps in time for All Out.

My Score: 8.8/10
