Backstage interview with Toni Storm!

Over the weekend, it was announced that she, Mercedes Martinez and Io Shirai are in a TRIPLE THREAT for the NXT Women’s Championship at TakeOver! What are her thoughts? Toni says Shirai has been untouchable ever since she entered NXT. At least, untouchable for anyone not named “Toni Storm.” Everyone’s a big fan, Toni had Shirai at her feet, and Toni was holding the belt up. That was just a preview for what we’ll see in a couple weeks. Shirai won’t stop her, “dead weight” Mercedes won’t stop her. Toni is on top of her game and it’ll be on full display in her match tonight.

 

William Regal talks with Edge backstage!

The NXT General Manager congratulates the Rated R Superstar on winning the 2021 Men’s Royal Rumble match, and Edge admires the infamous brass knuckles. But will they soon be discussing Edge wanting to bring the NXT Championship to WrestleMania?

 

Austin Theory w/ Johnny Gargano VS Leon Ruff!

The Way wants payback in the worst way on the underdog who helped kick them out of the Men’s Dusty Cup! Will Theory be beating up Ruff #AllDay for The Way? Or will Ruff find a way to add insult to injury?

The bell rings, Ruff and Theory circle and fans taunt Theory with “Theory Sucks!” Ruff headlocks Theory but Theory pushes Ruff to a corner.

Winner: Austin Theory, by pinfall

And the #RealSuperstar finds a way, even without Gargano guiding him by the hand! But he isn’t done with Ruff, he drags him up for a second ATL! “What goes up must come down!” Theory proves gravity is real, but he’s about to add on! He grabs the ring bell, only for DEXTER LUMIS to be there! Lumis grabs at Theory, Theory scrambles away, but Lumis ripped out some of Theory’s hair! Will this just be a little bit of what Lumis takes from Theory and The Way as we approach Vengeance Day?

 

Santos Escobar speaks.

“El Legado del Fantasma is always in control. When there’s business to take care of, we take care of it. When there are people to put down, we put them down.” That is what they will do tonight. Legado shows how powerful they really are. Joaquin Wilde & Raul Mendoza will BURY Lucha House Party once and for all and take their rightful places in the Dusty Cup Semifinals. Then Escobar will “manhandle” Curt Stallion and stop the upstart in his tracks. Tonight, everyone will see that this is Legado’s empire! Their future is bright, but for everyone else, the end is near. Will that be true after the Legado is put in the ring?

 

NXT hears from Tian Sha.

“She” says that back before the dynasties, the land was ruled by an honorable king. He had two children, an older son and younger daughter. But corrupted by greed, the son killed his father, the king, and took power, ruling with an iron fist and bringing dishonor to the family. The younger daughter lived in fear and fled into exile. In that exile, she found a dragon, and asked it to teach her, give her the strength to restore honor and take back the kingdom. The dragon agreed, at the cost of her soul. She was put through four grueling trials that would “purge her fear” and replace it with power. She would be reborn as a warrior with no weaknesses. And the final thing the dragon taught her was how to ascend to the throne.

The young daughter destroyed her older brother and returned honor to her family. But then, upon taking the throne, she realized she would have to become the one thing she despised. She would have to instill fear in others, and she made the people fear the name, “Tian Sha,” for generations. And now, she has come to NXT!

 

Men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Quarterfinals: El Legado del Fantasma VS Lucha House Party!

We heard the Leader of Leaders and “Champion of Champions” speak on behalf of his Technical Assassin and Death From Above, but this is the rebuttal! Will Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik prove Escobar wrong and be the ones to take Wilde & Mendoza out?

The teams sort out, Mendoza starts with Metalik and the two circle. They approach, tie up, and Mendoza waistlocks to snapmare, but Metalik handsprings through. Metalik runs, handsprings over the leg sweep, then RANAS, but Mendoza handsprings, into a dropkick! Fans fire up, Metalik tags in Lince and Lince goes up to get the slingshot boost for the FLYING RANA! Lince keeps moving, QUEBRADA! Cover, TWO!

Fans are loving this as Lince and Metalik stumble up. Lince puts Wilde in, runs in and SPIKE-RANAS! Cover, TWO!! Lince gets up, Wilde boots him, Mendoza tags in! Wilde tilt-o-whirls on Lince as Mendoza runs, ENZIGURI LEG SWEEP! Cover, Legado wins!!

Winners: El Legado del Fantasma, by pinfall (advance to the semifinals)

So far, Escobar’s prophecy is coming true! But here comes MSK to see their future opponents in person! “Congratulations, Legado!” Are they feeling good? They should be! A victory like that is felt in the gut. But that feeling is going to be taken away when MSK beats the brakes off ’em! MSK is Michael, Legado is Tito! Legado is just in the way of the meteoric rise of Wes Lee and Nash Carter in becoming Dusty Cup champions! It’s so pretty, isn’t it? So Legado better train real hard, because it’ll be MSK all night and all day!

 

The Kings of NXT arrive again!

Pete Dunne leads the way this time as Danny Burch says it’s Wednesday night! But Dunne’s been rather quiet, what’s on his mind? Wait, Dunne can be quieter than usual? Dunne says he just wants to find Balor. That sounds great! Let’s go get Balor! What will the kings have in mind for The Prince here tonight?

 

NXT returns as The Kings of NXT head to the ring.

Dunne leads the way again as they walk through the ropes, and he grabs a mic. “I told Finn Balor to his face that I’m not waitin’ anymore! But he didn’t listen. So last week, I delivered the message again and snapped his fingers.” Dunne doesn’t want to be forced to make it any more clear than that. So here comes the NXT Champion! Finn Balor has a mic and tells Dunne, “You say you’re done waiting, but it looks to me like you’re still hiding in line behind them two clowns.” Dunne says he doesn’t hide behind anyone! Balor goes to the ring and stares the three kings down. “Doesn’t look like that to me.” Dunne has his boys back off a bit, and Balor gets in the ring with Dunne.

Dunne says Balor better hold onto the belt tight, because the first chance Dunne gets, it’s his. Well he’s got his chance! TakeOver: Vengeance Day, Balor VS Dunne for the NXT Championship!! But here comes EDGE!! The Men’s Royal Rumble winner is in the Capital Wrestling Center for the first time ever, and everyone is loving it! Well, except maybe Dunne and Balor. Edge has a mic to join the conversation. “This. This feels good. A lot of times in WWE, we put the focus on the E. But here in NXT, the focus is on the second W, and that’s fun.” Edge says for years, he’s watched NXT as a fan, like anyone else.

But he has always seen passion, hunger and fire in the eyes! What people don’t know, and what he’ll tell us is that this show helped Edge find his passion. The passion needed to get his career back after nine YEARS. That passion won the Royal Rumble on Sunday, and now Edge can challenge any champion within the company. Now, Edge looks at Balor and Dunne and sees two of the best. Dunne is so much like a young Edge, both the good and the bad, but that’s what makes them who they are. Edge would’ve shrugged his shoulders at himself, too, kid!

And then with Balor, Edge sees a guy who is operating on an entirely different level. Balor is “in a zone that is special to watch.” So that said, Edge will be watching TakeOver, because Edge has never had the NXT Championship. So no matter who wins at TakeOver, the NXT title is intriguing. And if Edge hasn’t made his choice by then, who knows? This fight could be his choice. Edge has put the Prince AND the Bruiserweight on notice, but will he be targeting them after Vengeance Day?

 

Backstage interview with Johnny Gargano!

But he interrupts by saying it’s a good thing this new interviewer isn’t McKenzie. McKenzie asks stupid questions. Gargano wants a good journalist for a change. Like Howard Cosell to Muhammad Ali. What’s she got for “the kid?” Her question is, how is The Way feeling after Theory’s match with Leon Ruff? Well Theory showed everyone the way to win a match. And if that freak, Dexter Lumis, keeps messing with Theory, Theory will just have to put him in his place! Then, after the confrontation with Shotzi and Ember, how are Candice and Indi feeling going into their semifinals match next week? The only way that match ends is with Candice & Indi punching a ticket to TakeOver to become the first-ever Women’s Dusty Cup winners! This is going great, too!

Thanks, but the last question is, what is his reaction to the news from Regal’s office that Gargano will defend his NXT North American Championship at TakeOver, against Kushida? She said the K-WORD!! Who is she again?! Does she work here?! Is she new here? Is she just some crazy lady who got back here and spreads lies?! They’re going to see Regal and sort this out. Cameraman, you, too! We’re going to see this new girl get fired! But will Gargano be disappointed to hear the truth?

NXT returns and Gargano says he doesn’t care if it’s her first day, she’s either fired or “getting put in crazy people jail.” Gargano knocks on Regal’s door but Kushida answers! And Kushida asks if Gargano has an appointment. Gargano says the North American Champion doesn’t need an appointment. Kushida says he does because Regal is very busy. Really? Fine. Gargano will come back later. Then he sucker punches Kushida! They brawl, Kushida throws Gargano into a wall, then clubs him, then throws him through a door! Then Kushida PENALTY KICKS Gargano’s arm! Regal and security reprimand Kushida but the damage is done! Will the Time Splitter still go for gold on Vengeance Day?

 

Toni Storm VS Jessi Kamea w/ Aliyah & Robert Stone!

The Lightning From Down Under promised to show her full power tonight, and she’s going after the newest client of the Robert Stone Brand! Will Toni Time have a good time tonight?

The bell rings, Toni and Jessi tie up and Toni knees low then ROCKS Jessi with a forearm! Toni whips Jessi to ropes to snap her off, then BOOTS her down! Jessi scrambles, Toni runs and hits a SLIDING LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Toni looms over Jessi, waistlocks, but Jessi elbows free! Jessi fireman’s carries but Toni holds ropes, so Jessi throws her to the top buckle! Then KICKS Toni down! Cover, TWO! Jessi drags Toni up, whips her to ropes, but Toni reverses to CHOP Jessi, then waistlock. Jessi bucks the O’Conner roll away, then hits a basement calf kick! But wait, Mercedes gets in and she talks trash to Toni! Jessi goes after Mercedes first but Mercedes hits back!

Winner: Jessi Kamea, by disqualification

Mercedes cost Toni the match so now Toni is going after her! They brawl while the Robert Stone Brand regroups and has Jessi leave it at this. But here comes Shirai! We’re going to get a continuation from last week! Toni GERMAN SUPLEXES Mercedes, rains down fists, but Shirai perches on the top rope to watch her opponents fight. Mercedes gets up, Toni HEADBUTTS her! Both women fall, and Shirai adjusts on the top rope, to ASAI MOONSAULT! Direct hit and both contenders are down! Will the Evil Genius have a plan to use Toni and Mercedes against each other to her benefit?

 

Curt Stallion speaks.

“On the 205th episode of 205 Live, I went out there and I won a Fatal 5 Way match for a future opportunity at the Cruiserweight Championship.” And tonight is the absolute biggest moment Stallion has had not just in his career, but in life. All the work and time put in, not just here in the WWE but to be in this position, against a guy like Escobar. Escobar has been running, but Stallion has him cornered. Place your bets as the Lonestar makes Texas proud.

 

Cameron Grimes is on his way back!

“Cameron Grimes, always at the right place at the right time!” Will it be Grime Time once again as the Carolina Caveman makes his return to NXT next week?

 

NXT Cruiserweight Championship: Santos Escobar w/ Legado del Fantasma VS Curt Stallion!

The Leader of Leaders has delayed this match long enough! No sneak attacks or dirty tricks this time, he has to put up or shut up! Will Stallion make sure it’s the latter and then finally ride off into the sunset with the gold?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and this fight a long time coming finally happens!

Stallion dares Escobar to do something but Escobar doesn’t take “rookie” Stallion seriously. Escobar and Stallion circle, tie up, and go around the ropes. Stallion has Escobar in the corner but lets off as the ref counts. They circle and tie up again, and Escobar powers Stallion to ropes to knee and CLUB him! Stallion CHOPS, Escobar CLUBS away and even fires off Kowata Kicks! Stallion gets away but he’s just pissed! Stallion CHOPS but Escobar DECKS him! Escobar stomps Stallion then drags him around to stomp him more. Escobar drags Stallion up, puts him in a corner, then cravats to grind him down.

Stallion endures, throws body shots but Escobar snapmares him to a seated cobra twist! Escobar twists Stallion’s wrists and puts on a keylock as he talks trash. Stallion endures, fights up, but Escobar whips Stallion and things speed up, for Escobar to dropkick Stallion down! Cover, TWO! Stallion is still in this, and Scarlett Bordeaux is watching from the perch! Escobar keeps on Stallion with a keylock, but Stallion fights up, only for Escobar to dragon sleeper. Stallion flails, swats at Escobar, but Escobar shifts to go after the arm again. Escobar puts Stallion in a corner and CHOPS him! Escobar whips corner to corner and runs in to double knee!

Escobar brings Stallion up and hits a BRAIN BUSTER! Cover, ONE?! Escobar mounts for the keylock, and he smirks at Scarlett. Stallion endures but Escobar jabs him. Escobar drags Stallion up and around, but Stallion throws forearms. Escobar hits Stallion back, but Stallion jawbreakers! Stallion runs but into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Escobar smirks, he lets his hair down and still stares Scarlett down, but Stallion rolls him up! TWO!! Stallion clotheslines Escobar out of the ring! Fans rally for Stallion while Escobar is flustered and NXT goes to break!

NXT returns and Escobar has Stallion down at the ramp and is talking trash. The ref wants this to get back in the ring while Escobar says this is where Stallion belongs. Escobar puts Stallion in the ring at the count of 5 of 10, covers, TWO! Escobar smirks as he sits Stallion up and twists one of his arms around behind to the hammerlock. Escobar rams knees into Stallion, puts him up top and clubs away. Escobar brings Stallion out for a MUSCLE BUSTER! Escobar mocks Kross and Scarlett before he covers, TWO! Escobar clubs away on Stallion, and then puts on a deep Half Crab! Stallion endures, crawls and claws forward, but Escobar shifts to an STF!

Escobar keeps moving around and has an arm for a half straitjacket modification! Stallion still endures, fans rally up now, and Scarlett is still staring Escobar down. Escobar KNEES Stallion in the side as he holds onto a leg and arm. Stallion endures this modified surfboard, so Escobar lets go to kick away on Stallion’s side! Stallion gets to a corner, Escobar drags him up and throws forearms. Escobar fireman’s carries Stallion but Stallion fights free with elbows! Stallion dodges Escobar in the corner to fire off forearms, but Escobar knees him back! Escobar throws a forearm, whips Stallion corner to corner, but Stallion dodges again! GERMAN SUPLEX and a ROLLING ELBOW!

Stallion starts to rally with big hands and he ROCKS Escobar! Escobar sits in the corner, bails out, but Stallion DIVES! Direct hit and they go to barriers! Stallion puts Escobar in, climbs up top, and leaps for a SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Another try, TWO! Escobar survives but Stallion sees him going to a corner, and hits a basement dropkick!

Escobar brings Stallion up, but Stallion mule kicks, knees and HEADBUTTS! Stallion CALF KICKS back!

Stallion is down, Escobar brings him up to fireman’s carry, PHANTOM DRIVER! But he’s not done there, LEGADO BUSTER! Cover, Escobar wins!

Winner: Santos Escobar, by pinfall (still NXT Cruiserweight Champion)

Legado dominates the night, but Scarlett is still sinister and stoic from where she watches the celebration. Wait, Kross is storming down the ramp! He BOOTS Mendoza, scoops and TOSSES Wilde, then drags Mendoza back up to gut wrench and TOSS into barriers! Escobar sees he’s alone with Kross, but doesn’t seem to sweat the apocalypse before him. Kross gets in the ring, and says they have a problem. The solution: time. A double-edged sword. All that will give Escobar is time to think on the inevitable. Now run along. Escobar doesn’t like being talked down to, but the clock is ticking. What happens when time is up?

 

NXT Media catches Edge as he heads out.

After a fist bump with Bronson Reed, Edge goes to the parking lot, and the reporter asks if Edge has made any decisions yet. No, not yet. But even if he had, he wouldn’t say. But then Kross storms over and says Edge has a very big decision to make. That will be a moment Edge will have to live with for the rest of his life. Kross hopes Edge chooses wisely, and not emotionally. Because in the end, it won’t be Pete Dunne or Finn Balor going to WrestleMania. It’ll be Kross, having taken back the title he never lost. Time tells all, even for the ultimate opportunist. Sounds scary.

But with words like that, they can be motivating. They could motivate Edge to come back to NXT, and maybe Kross wouldn’t like that. Will Mr. Doomsday be the one regretting the decisions he’s made, should the Rated R Superstar want to go from red to black ‘n’ gold?

 

Men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Quarterfinals: The Undisputed Era VS Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher!

Adam Cole and Roderick Strong is the one combination in the Era that hasn’t put their names to a tag team achievement. The Psycho Killer and the Professor of Pain put their combination together out of respect, but also curiosity. Which combination proves itself superior and then head for the semifinals?

The teams sort out and Ciampa starts with Cole, a very familiar match-up. They circle, tie up, and Ciampa powers Cole to a corner. Ciampa gets up on Cole but the ref reprimands, and Ciampa lets off with a pat on Cole’s shoulder. Cole shrugs that off, ties up with Ciampa again, and Ciampa headlocks. Cole powers out but Ciampa runs him over! Ciampa speeds things up, Cole stays low but Ciampa hits a headlock and takeover! Cole pushes with his forearm, gets a headscissor but Ciampa pops free. Cole fireman’s carries but Ciampa slips off and rolls him, ONE! Ciampa wants the double underhooks but Cole trips him and jackknifes, TWO!

Ciampa headlocks, Cole powers up but Ciampa holds tight! Ciampa grinds Cole down, Cole endures and fights against the hold again, but Ciampa hooks the leg. Cole gets up and throws body shots to power out. Ciampa ducks the boot, waistlocks but Cole bucks the roll. Ciampa avoids the shining wizard, blocks the superkick, but Cole avoids Ciampa’s knee! Fans cheer the stand-off of these old rivals! Ciampa claps for Cole but Cole and Ciampa each tag out to Strong and Thatcher! The Savior of the Backbreaker ties up with the Professor, they go around and Strong waistlocks but Thatcher gets an arm!

Referees and Regal hurry to stop this, but there won’t be any stopping it next week!


My Thoughts:

A great episode of NXT as we draw closer to the newly renamed TakeOver event. I like that NXT is bringing back old school WWE titles in their own way. Vengeance Day is an interesting choice but they got a pretty good logo out of it. We got a lot of stuff put together for it, too, namely the three top singles titles. Dunne calling out Balor, Balor giving Dunne the match because he wants it just as much, and Edge teasing that NXT is a choice was all great stuff. Kross making sure Edge was aware he could be champion by Mania time was also a good move, because there could be a match on TV of Kross VS winner from Vengeance Day. But as cool as it’d be for Edge to go for a title he’s never, ever had, pretty sure Edge is choosing one of the other titles.

The Women’s Championship Triple Threat is set but the segment plugging it was only alright. Mercedes costing Toni her match was pretty good, and Shirai getting them both was a nice touch, but I think we were all pretty sold on the match from last week’s huge brawl. Kushida VS Gargano was obviously the move, and could go either way given just how great Gargano is as both sore loser and sore winner. The Way had really good stuff tonight, and it works out for Theory that he wins even after all the shenanigans. Theory VS Lumis, Hair VS Hair for TakeOver? Sounds good to me. Cameron Grimes is also on his way back, will he look to cost Lumis?

I like that we got lore on Tian Sha, the mysterious mastermind behind Xia Li’s and Boa’s transformations. Maybe now Tian Sha (Karen Q) will start getting back in the ring. If Xia Li is this dangerous as her student, I can’t wait to see how powerful they make Tian Sha herself. We got good promos from Escobar and Stallion, but I feel bad for Stallion’s great run from 205 Live being turned into the transition for Escobar VS Kross. If Kross is feuding with Escobar, but it literally can’t be for the title because Kross is 265 pounds, why not cost Escobar the title so Stallion can carry it for bit and freshen things up? I feel like that’d be great story on Stallion’s end, where he only got the title because Kross and Scarlett interfered.

All the Dusty Cup matches tonight were great. Dakota & Raquel VS KC Squared was a really good opener for the night, and that match could’ve gone either way, but it makes sense for Dakota & Raquel to take it. There’s a lot that can happen with them in the finals because they have history with both teams on the other side. I would think the Faces win, so that Shotzi and Ember can get back for the loss at WarGames while making history, but sometimes a Heel VS Heel sounds fun. Legado wins mostly to prove Escobar right, but also so that MSK can be the Faces to their Heels. Not really sure MSK had the best promo there, but they’ll find their footing in that department.

Thatcher & Ciampa VS Undisputed Era was the best match tonight, and the former is really making it work as a team. They got over the dysfunction in the first round and are smooth in the second round. Their quick scuffle with GYV at the end was a nice touch, too, for what could be the best match in the tournament so far. The result with Thatcher & Ciampa VS GYV will go a long way to determining the other side, MSK VS Legado, but I like all the combinations possible.

My Score: 9.4/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

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

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

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

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

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

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

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

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

 

The House of Black speaks.

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

 

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

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

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

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

Mark Briscoe speaks.

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

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

 

Program loading.

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

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

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

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

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

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

The bell rings and the fans rally for Ava. The two tie up, Nyla waistlocks but Ava fires elbows. Ava is free, she fires more shots, then winds up to ROCK Nyla! Ava runs, ducks Nyla’s lariat and wrenches, but Nyla stuffs the STO! Nyla choke grips and CHOKE SLAMS Ava! The fans fire up as Nyla storms around. Ava stands up, Nyla SPLASHES her in the corner! Then Nyla whips Ava back in, reels her in, and suplexes Ava high and hard! Nyla rolls through to deadlift and GOURD BUSTER! Ava sits up, into a SUPERKICK! Nyla fires up, reels Ava back in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

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

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

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

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

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

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

 

Skye Blue speaks.

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

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

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

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

Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing!

Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

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

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

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

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

The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

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

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

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

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

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

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

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

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

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

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

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

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.8/10
