The bell rings and fans fire up already as these two circle. They tie up, Fenix wrenches to an armlock then hammerlock, then traps Matt with one arm to throw body shots.

They throw more hands, they DORCK each other, Matt blocks the roundhouse to spin Fenix but SUPERKICKS COLLIDE! They ROCK each other, but then Matt gut wrenches Fenix! Fenix fights free to scoop Matt, FIRE THUNDER DRIVER!! Cover, Fenix wins!!!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall

And that’s a win over one-half of the tag team champions! Will Death Triangle soon take those titles for their own? Or will things be different when the Bucks are together for a Superkick Party?


Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston speak!

The Mad King is first, saying, “Well folks, here it is. The big explanation everyone wants to know about. It’s a little embarrassing, but y’know, I’m me.” When Kingston hurried out at Revolution to cover up his friend, Moxley, thinking there was going to be this huge explosion, all these fireworks, he got a flashback to the last time he had that anxiety. The last time he had this kind of panic, he couldn’t breathe. That’s when Kingston was in a jail cell, getting ready for court, with the guards telling him he was going to Rikers, “Sing Sing,” and everything went black. So go ahead, make fun of him. He’s not speaking for you or to you, but to those who understand where he’s coming from.

So Kingston tells Kenny Omega, “Kenny! You think this is a video game? Look at the heat!” Kingston puts his hand over the little fire he and Moxley have going, and Kingston says that is what he felt! Look at his hand! He didn’t scar them up playing video games! Omega thinks he’s the Joker or something? You think this is funny? Moxley says Omega wasn’t joking. He really wanted to blow everyone up. Kingston says there’s no way. Omega’s the Joker to Moxley’s Batman. Moxley thinks that’s cool, but he’s pretty sure Omega was really trying. Kingston says Omega isn’t that nuts.

Moxley doesn’t know who paid for the bomb. Kingston says Impact probably paid for it, and Moxley can see that. But when that bomb came in the mail, did it have the big bold letters of ACME on it? Moxley’s made more explosive volcanos in fourth grade science class. “What the hell was that?” But Mox had an Explosive Barbed Wire Deathmatch live on PPV, and all he got was a lousy T-shirt. Okay, it’s a cool T-shirt, but Moxley didn’t win the title back. Omega was the better man at Revolution. But Moxley did get his drinking buddy back. Moxley knew that wasn’t Kingston that one time. Well the world title makes you do crazy things.

Moxley says Kingston could’ve come out a little earlier, when he was getting the crap kicked out of him and all that. Moxley jokes that Kingston had to get his eyebrows done and his good shoes on. Kingston had Butcher and Blade. “You already know my style, B! It’s 1998 forever in my head.” Well it’s good that they didn’t get blown up at Revolution. But Moxley kinda wanted to see a bomb go off. A lot of people did. But Moxley tells Kenny and the Good Brothers, if they’re going to flash a weapon, they better use it. Does this mean Moxley and Kingston are going to make sure the Biz Cliz pays for even thinking they could end the Maniac’s run?


Cody Rhodes w/ Arn Anderson VS Seth Gargis!

The American Nightmare managed to fight through a bad shoulder to make it to the end of the Face of the Revolution ladder match, but he still didn’t win it. Will he be able to power through and start back on the path towards the TNT Championship?

The bell rings, Cody and Gargis circle and tie up. Cody wrenches to a wristlock but Gargis reverses, only for Cody to DECK him! Cody scoops Gargis and carries him around to hit an OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE! Fans fire up as Cody gets the legs, steps through, and gets the FIGURE FOUR! Gargis endures, claws at the hold but he’s caught, he taps out! Cody wins!

Winner: Cody Rhodes, by submission

The Prince of Pro-Wrestling wasn’t playing around, he got that done fast! Tony Schiavone goes to the ring and Arn tells him he’s on the clock. Schiavone’s mic takes a second to get working so Cody tosses him a good one. Schiavone asks about the shoulder, how Shaq threw him around and all that, but how is Cody feeling? Well Cody will talk about it, and losing the ladder match, and- Wait, Penta is interrupting from Spanish Commentary! Penta has Alex stand up to help translate. Penta tells Cody to SHUT UP, then tells Alex to tell us that when it comes to Cody, “He’s a thousand times better than you!” And then, if Cody is the Prince of Pro-Wrestling, that makes Penta the LORD OF LUCHA!

Penta heads for the ring with Alex and fans chant “Lord of Lucha Libre!” Penta then speaks English to the American Nightmare to say, “You serious? At Revolution, you lost!” And had it just been Cody and Penta and a ring, Cody would have lost even more than the match! And you know why? Well Alex translates that Cody is lucky Penta didn’t focus on hurting that arm even more, because it would’ve been so bad, Cody couldn’t even be able to pick up his newborn baby girl! WHOA~! Cody runs at Penta and they brawl!! Security and other wrestlers hurry to break this one up but way more need to hold Cody back than Penta!

Cody is furious, but for now, Penta gets away with insulting the Rhodes family. Will Cody make Penta put his money where his mouth is and get in the ring with him 1v1?


Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy are at the arcade.

But they’re not here to play games. Chuck speaks to Miro and Kip Sabian as he says, “Boys. We’ve been at this a long time. Too damn long.” Kip, Miro and Penelope first break Trent and put him on the shelf. They make Chuck their butler, put him through a window, and then they tried to take out Cassidy here. Wait, Cassidy, you didn’t even put coins in the machine? Well anyway, Chuck and Cassidy want one more match. If Miro does that, Chuck will give Miro what he wants. Chuck will be Miro’s butler forever if he loses.

But Cassidy had a brilliant idea earlier. What if they take all these arcade games that Miro loves so much, put them ringside, then put Miro’s head through every single one? Cassidy takes off the sunglasses as he says, “And then we break you.” An arcade cabinet tag match?! Will that be the key to ending this back and forth with the Best Man? Or will it just be #GAMEOVER for the Best Friends?


AEW returns with Tony Schiavone on stage.

And ladies and gentlemen, it’s STIIIIIING~! The Icon won the Street Fight at Revolution alongside Darby Allin, and what a comeback to action! Sting says Darby is “a dangerous, dangerous man.” Darby puts his life on the line every single night, takes risks, and that isn’t even everything. It isn’t even a calculated risk, and that is why Darby is dangerous. Then combine that with the Stinger and a “menacing” location like the streets, and BOOM! The Stinger and Darby get a win!

But then wait! Lance Archer and Jake the Snake are making their way out! “If you’re not going to give us time, then we are going to take the time.” And since Sting is wasting time, now is the time for Archer to let us know he never needed a ladder match to prove he IS the Face of the Revolution! If things don’t change, Archer is going to take much, much more than just time. Schiavone understands that but this was Sting’s time. Oh sorry, is that how this is going to go. Well, then bye Stanger. You’ll have your time, for now. Just remember that. With that, Archer and Jake take their leave.

Schiavone apologizes on Archer’s behalf, and Stinger says that’s fine, see you in the next one. Will the Murderhawk Monster make sure the Icon understands how dangerous this jungle can be?


Backstage interview with Lee Johnson and QT Marshall.

Dasha asks QT for some insight on what happened in the tag team battle royal, when he just left Dustin Rhodes during the middle of all that. QT says he’s only human, his emotions got the better of him, but the Nightmare Family will deal with it. Right now is about Big Shotty Lee Johnson, and the huge match he has with Ethan Page. Ethan has a lot to prove, but so does Johnson, and he wants to pick up another win. AEW has technical difficulties but that’s because All Ego is already headed to the ring!

Ethan Page VS Lee Johnson w/ QT Marshall!

The newest signee to AEW made a huge debut at Revolution, and after losing, he DEMANDED a huge singles match for Dynamite. But Ethan is upset that QT is accompanying Johnson and “occupying 33.3% of MY spotlight!” But will this angry, agitated and annoyed Ethan Page make Johnson pay for this?

The bell rings and Johnson circles with Ethan. Ethan kicks low, ROCKS Johnson, then has him in a corner to whip corner to corner. Ethan goes up and over, handsprings then dodges to shove Ethan to ropes. Ethan dodges but Johnson dropkicks him down! Johnson drags Ethan up, wrenches, but Ethan puts him on the ropes. The ref calls for a break and gets between them, but Ethan gets a HARD sucker punch in! Ethan has Johnson in a corner, stomps him and brings him out to suplex. Johnson slips out, waistlocks, but Ethan fights that and elbows free to CLOBBER Johnson! Ethan paces and Johnson goes to a corner, Ethan runs in but Johnson elbows him away!

Johnson BOOTS Ethan, swings, but into Ethan’s waistlock. Ethan puts Johnson in a corner, throws elbows, then snapmares him for a BIG shoulder tackle! Ethan soaks up the heat as Johnson is down, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Johnson goes to the apron, Ethan goes out after him, and brings Johnson up for a fireman’s carry. Johnson fights free with elbows and is back in he ring to ENZIGURI Ethan down! Johnson then PLANCHAS and takes Ethan down! Johnson fires up and fans rally as he brings Ethan up. Ethan RAMS Johnson into railing, then underhooks to get Johnson up on the railing, for a DRAPING BUTTERFLY BACKBREAKER! Johnson writhes and the ref checks on him with Ethan seethes and snarls. Ethan drags Johnson up, puts him in the ring, and stomps him down. QT coaches Johnson but Ethan drags him up to DECK him!

Johnson goes to another corner, Ethan brings him up and scoops him for a SPINNING BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Johnson survives that and pie faces Ethan! Ethan gets mad but Johnson throws hands! Ethan kicks low, whips Johnson to ropes and CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Johnson flounders to a corner, Ethan storms over and CLUBS him down. Ethan digs his knee into Johnson’s back then wraps on a rear bearhug. Johnson endures, QT coaches him, and Johnson fights up to throw elbows. Ethan CLUBS Johnson, CLUBS him again, then wraps on the bearhug as AEW goes to single picture.

Fans rally again, Ethan drags Johnson up, but Johnson throws elbows and gets free to throw forearms. Ethan knees low, swings but Johnson counter punches to ROCK Ethan! Ethan ducks the swing to back suplex Johnson but Johnson lands on is feet! Johnson blocks a punch, elbows Ethan and hits a neckbreaker! Fans fire up as Johnson stalks Ethan, waistlocks, but Ethan elbows the back suplex away. Ethan goes to run but Johnson reels him in for BLUE THUNDER BOMB!! Cover, TWO!?! Johnson usually ends matches with that but Ethan survives! Fans rally, Johnson throws his wrist tape away and goes at Ethan in a corner.

Ethan hits Johnson away, climbs up, but Johnson hits him! Johnson climbs up to throw forearms, then brings Ethan up. Ethan throws body shots, scoops Johnson and SUPER SLAMS him! Ethan then hops down, steps in and hits a SPRINGBOARD CUTTER!! Cover, TWO!?! Johnson survives but Ethan keeps on Johnson in a corner. Ethan hoists Johnson up top, climbs up to join him, but Johnson hits him away. Johnson leaps over but jams a leg! Ethan wants after him but the ref keeps him back. Ethan shrugs and BOOTS Johnson down! Fans boo but Ethan ignores them as Johnson bails out. Johnson wants a hand from QT but QT just stands there as Ethan goes out to fetch Johnson.

Ethan drags Johnson up, puts him in, and stalk Johnson to bring him up to a Canadian rack. Ethan sets Johnson up for SPLASH MOUNTAIN! Cover, Ethan wins!

Winner: Ethan Page, by pinfall

The #EgosEdge is what wins Ethan’s first singles match, but he adds on by stomping away on Johnson! QT still doesn’t even do anything!? Dustin Rhodes runs out to run Ethan off, but again Dustin has to question what the hell is going on with QT! QT is just walking away! Is QT quitting the Nightmare Family without an explanation?


AEW Media catches up with Hangman Page.

Alex Marvez is curious as to how Hangman is spending the money he earned from the Big Money Match, and we see him zip in on a Snapper Pro riding mower! Is this one of the purchases made using Matt Hardy’s first quarter earnings? Hangman says he got six bottles of whiskey, a brand new saddle, and the entire Dwight Yoakam vinyl collection, and even donated most of it to the Jacksonville Education Fund. But yeah, this riding mower is one of the purchases. Time to cut some grass!

John Silver comes by and asks if Hangman has room for more people on the mower. Sure, why not! But wait, the rest of the Dark Order gets on! Uno, Stu, Reynolds, Cabana and Vance get on with Silver, but Angels is left off. There’s a weight limit and Angels was too slow. Now let’s get ice cream! YEEEAH~! Hangman puts pedal to the metal, and Angels says he’ll see them there. Will the Cowboy and his posse party hardy with Matt Hardy’s money?


AEW returns and Schiavone is back on stage.

Of all the things that happened this Sunday at Revolution was the arrival of this next guest, a great tag team champion in his career, and a great singles champion, too. This man officially signed with AEW this Sunday, and now we get to hear from CHRISTIAN CAGE! But wait, no, these are the Sweepettes. This isn’t for Christian, this is for KENNY OMEGA!! The man who is still AEW World Champion rolls in with the men who helped him win! Don Callis, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson follow Omega to the ring, and Callis has the mic to interview him.

Fans boo but Callis says, “Ladies and gentlemen, I’m sorry but I guess you’re not going to get to hear from the brand new signee of AEW, because in case you’re new around here, new signee, Kenny Omega, Don Callis & the Good Brothers, we call the shots around here. We take what we want, and then we take a little more, so we’re taking this time for ourselves.” And as Callis stands here next to “the greatest wrestler who ever lived, the God of Professional Wrestling,” and the KING OF THE DEATHMATCH! Callis tells Omega that on Sunday, at Revolution, “it all went according to plan.” Well, almost. Oh yes, that. The explosion not heard around the world.

Callis finds it interesting. They’ve taken a lot of heat since then, being blamed for us not getting what we wanted. Well, Callis will neither confirm nor deny if they had something to do with that. But what Callis will confirm is how happy it made Callis to take away what fans wanted! To take away things! Tony Khan wants AEW to make memories, Callis and Omega make HISTORY, and that is what they did when Omega beat Moxley! That is what they do! But they took away Moxley’s big moment when he wanted to die in a blaze of glory! They took away Eddie Kingston’s star-making, heroic moment!

Callis says he learned about win-win situations. If the ring had blown up, Team Omega wins. Moxley and Kingston would be gone, and Omega would be champion. But if the ring somehow didn’t blow up, which it didn’t, then that’s a bigger win because Mox & Kingston look like idiots and Team Omega still has the world title! So they do what they do all the time: WIN! Omega says he’s got goosebumps just thinking about what it would’ve looked like to see Moxley vaporized in the middle of the ring! That would’ve been a dream come true to never worry about Moxley. But now it’s just as sweet to have the eternal memory of seeing Moxley embarrassed in the ring, leaving him a loser.

And what a cherry on top for Kingston, the thing they never even factored in, never expected, for their childhood friendship to be what rescued and “dry humped” Moxley in the middle of the ring as sparklers shot off! But talk about memories- Kingston storms out to the ring! He sees it’s 3v1 since Callis doesn’t count, but Callis says this is alright. Callis knows Kingston and Kingston knows he knows Callis. So Callis says he had Kingston in Impact because he is talented, tough, and the star in that face of his. Kingston had it all, but why did Callis fire him? And that is what happened.

It’s because Kingston did there that he’s done his whole life: When Kingston is this close to success and the “brass ring,” he self-sabotages! Just like at Revolution when he laid there and everyone laughed! That was Kingston’s moment, and they took it away! Fans rally for Kingston but Callis says he’s outgunned. But because Callis likes Kingston, he gives Kingston a chance to get out of here with what’s left of his pride intact. Kingston will have 10 seconds before he gets his ass kicked. So here it is! The countdown, just like Revolution! OH NO~! Someone save Omega~! Kingston falls on Omega and then… Nothing.

Omega sits up and mocks Kingston’s anxiety. Did we blow up? Nope! Omega almost passed out as he flashbacked to detention! But Kingston is in the ring with the best champion ever, looking like a joke, standing with four guys who could whoop his ass. Omega counts Callis, apparently. But Kingston is stone-faced. Does he want to hit Omega? Huh? Wanna hit the champ? Well here’s his big shot! Take a swing and see what happens! You don’t have the balls, Kingston! But Kingston DECKS Omega! The Good Brothers are right on Kingston with haymakers, but Moxley gets in! Omega is out cold, Moxley and Kingston fight off Gallows & Anderson!

Things spill out of the ring, Moxley throws Anderson into barriers, and here comes… CHRISTIAN CAGE! The brawling continues as Captain Charisma finally gets his time on Dynamite! Christian looks around at the Peeps, but focuses in on the Cleaner who is coming to. Christian goes to the ring, Omega gets up, and the two stare down. Omega talks trash, saying Christian is in his ring now. But then Omega offers a handshake? Christian hesitates, fans aren’t sure about it, but Omega takes a swing! Christian catches him and turns him, but Callis gets Omega out of the Killswitch!

Callis holds Omega back, but Christian holds up the AEW World Championship! Is Christian going to add this title to his already historic list of accolades?


Six Woman Tag: Hikaru Shida, Thunder Rosa & Ryo Mizunami VS Maki Itoh, Britt Baker & Nyla Rose!

The Full Metal Warrior is still AEW Women’s World Champion, and finally has a win against her rival, Aneki! But they weren’t able to soak in the moment at Revolution because of the Native Beast, the Doctor and the Fired Idol! Will Shida, Rosa and Ryo make these Vicious Vixens, the Role Model and the Cutest in the World regret ruining the moment?

Wait, as Itoh is performing her theme song, Rosa, Ryo and Shida rush Nyla and Britt! They all brawl, Itoh just tunes it out, and Shida clashes with Rebel, kendo stick VS crutch! Britt brawls with Rosa but runs away, and Nyla ROCKS Ryo. Vickie helps Rebel by kicking Shida in the leg! The ref tries to sort things out but Itoh is still performing. Vickie chokes Shida with her kendo stick! Rebel then throws Shida over to her corner and Itoh finishes her song. Shida rushes Itoh but Itoh BOPS her with the mic! And again! And again! Itoh takes off her headphones and finally gets into fight mode as she puts Shida into the ring.

The bell sounds and Itoh fires up to drop the Kokeshi, but misses! Shida KICKS Itoh, drags her up, and whips her to a corner. Itoh reverses, runs in and elbows! Itoh fires up, climbs up, and asks, “Who is the cutest in the world? ITOH-CHAN DEEESU~!” She rains down fists, but Shida carries Itoh away! Itoh fights free and stomps Shida’s foot! Itoh flips Shida off, but Shida grabs the dirty birds to pull them back! Shida arm-drags Itoh by the fingers! Tag to Ryo and she fires off machine gun chops! Ryo lets off and apologizes to the ref, to then shake it up and CHOP again! Ryo fires up with the fans, does the pantomime, and then runs in to clothesline!

Itoh flounders to her corner and tags Nyla, but Ryo tags Rosa. Rosa KICKS away on Nyla’s leg, then dropkicks her to ropes! Rosa fires forearms, Nyla forearms back! They go forearm for forearm, Rosa runs but Vickie is in the way! Nyla CLOBBERS Rosa, covers, ONE!! Nyla drags Rosa up and whips her to the corner, to then throw body shots as AEW goes picture in picture.

Nyla wrenches Rosa, whips her back in hard, then pie faces Ryo and taunts Shida! The ref is busy with all that, and Britt chokes Rosa! Nyla goes back to Rosa, drags her up, and tags in Itoh. Nyla snapmares Rosa then snap suplexes her, and Itoh fires up again, for the KOKESHI! Itoh is fired up, she covers, TWO! Itoh drags Rosa away from her corner to wrap on a chinlock. Rosa endures, elbows over and over, but can’t get free. Itoh puts Rosa on ropes, kicks her, then tags in Britt. Britt throws forearms but Rosa hits back. Britt puts Rosa in the corner and chokes her! The ref counts, Britt lets off to ROCK Rosa again! Britt drags Rosa around, and pulls her against the post!

The ref reprimands but Nyla adds her boot, and both Rebel and Vickie mock Rosa’s pain! The ref counts and everyone backs off, and Britt gets in while Itoh gets a bop in on Rosa. Britt tags Nyla, Nyla throws body shots on Rosa then snapmares for a NECK SNAPPER! Nyla drags Rosa up to waistlock but Rosa resists the lift. Rosa elbows free, throws more elbows, then wheelbarrows to a BULLDOG! Nyla flounders and flops, hot tags to Britt and Ryo! Aneki rallies on Britt, Itoh, and shoves Nyla into Britt, to then SPEAR Nyla!

AEW returns to single picture as fans fire up with Ryo! Ryo tags Shida, Shida baseball slides Nyla off the apron, and then Ryo whips Rosa into Britt! Shida runs in to KNEE Britt, then Shida wedges Britt in the corner for Ryo to be the human weapon, snap suplex into Britt! Shida covers, TWO! Itoh is also there but Ryo is after her. Ryo waistlocks Itoh, Shida powers up, but Britt ducks the drawing blade kick, and Itoh gets free to HEADBUTT Shida! Itoh fires up but Ryo CLOBBERS her! Nyla kicks Ryo, drags her up, but Rosa tags in and dropkicks Nyla! Rosa aims at Britt as she runs in at Britt and rams into her!

Rosa bumps Britt off buckles, throws elbows, then clotheslines! Rosa puts Britt out to join the others, and then she climbs the corner. Rosa LEAPS onto everyone, and takes them out with the Cancun Tornado! Fans fire up with Rosa as she drags Itoh up and around to put in the ring. Vickie swipes at Rosa but she kicks her away. Itoh forearms Rosa, reels her in and goes up the corner, for the TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO!! Rosa survives but Itoh shouts to the corner. Vickie distracts the ref, Rebel has the crutch! Itoh shoves Rosa, Rosa blocks the crutch attack and shoves Rebel down onto the pile outside!

Itoh kicks Rosa, fires up and runs, but into a scoop! THUNDER DRIVER!! Cover, Rosa and team win!!

Winners: Thunder Rosa, Hikaru Shida & Ryo Mizunami, by pinfall

But then Britt SMACKS Rosa with the crutch! The Role Model is a sore loser! Ryo, Nyla, Shida and Itoh brawl on the outside, Britt digs the crutch into Rosa’s head! Britt then drags Rosa around to the Rings of Saturn, and the LOCKJAW!! Rebel and Vickie add on where they can, and Rebel even digs the crutch into Rosa’s face! Britt lets Rosa go, but will she be facing revenge soon enough?


Matt Hardy and Private Party speak.

They want Hardy to cheer up. Hardy says he’s been reflecting the last few days, and he says they need to bring more money in. Yeah, Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy are pumped! But Hardy says he needs more money. What Hangman did is criminal! He’s stealing from Hardy like a bizarro Robin Hood! Sure, it was one safe, but Hardy’s been filling up safes with money for his entire life! Smart! Hardy has money to sustain the business to April. So therefore, he is adding an addition to the Hardy Empire. Wait, another person outside of Private Party? Yes. Hardy got a huge money deal with AEW that is so big, Hardy’s managerial fee won’t even be noticed. He introduces them to… Butcher, Blade & The Bunny!

Wait, seriously? Well they have a really good look. Butcher, Blade & Private Party together are going to DESTROY whoever is against them on the debut episode of Dark: Elevation! And then they all will destroy The Dark Order for what they and Hangman did to Hardy! Will Kingston’s former fam help Hardy make up what he lost in blood money?


AEW TNT Championship: Darby Allin VS Scorpio Sky!

The Relentless One won alongside The Icon, and clearly if this match is still happening, he was able to walk after falling down with Brian Cage. As for The Closer, he was the one who climbed up and finally took down a “brass ring” to become the Face of the Revolution! But after this, will Scorpio be the Face of TNT? Or will the champion still be relentless?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and this revolution will be televised!

Fans rally and duel as Darby and Scorpio stare down. They fist bump to show there is respect, and then the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Scorpio powers Darby back, only for the two to break. They circle and tie up again, and Darby headlocks to hit a takeover. Scorpio fights up, powers Darby to ropes then powers out, and he trips Darby up to float to the headlock. Darby slips out and hammerlocks, but Scorpio rolls and gets up, only for Darby to wrangle him back down. Fans rally, Scorpio fights up, but Darby works on the wristlock. Scorpio scoops but Darby slips out to roll Scorpio, TWO! Darby jackknifes, TWO! Scorpio gets away to a corner and fans fire up!

Darby waits as Scorpio cools off. They circle again, tie up, and Darby gets around to a waistlock. Scorpio tries to throw Darby off but Darby holds on tight! Darby rolls Scorpio around and around but Scorpio gets the ropebreak. Darby holds on as the ref counts but lets off at 4. Darby stays close, though, and Scorpio gets annoyed. Scorpio gets up and shoves Darby away, but the two circle again. They tie up, Scorpio waistlocks and throws Darby down! Scorpio pushes Darby to a cover, ONE! Scorpio keeps on Darby with a waistlock, Darby moves around and throws Scorpio out! Darby builds speed and slides but Scorpio gets in to slingshot. Darby evades so Scorpio goes to the apron.

Scorpio jumps over Darby’s swipe, Darby gets on the apron and slingshots up and over but he jams his leg! Scorpio shows no mercy and CLOBBERS Darby! Darby crawls to a corner, clutching his ankle. Scorpio drags Darby up, throws EuroUppers, then brings Darby around for more! Darby falls over, Scorpio covers, TWO! Scorpio grows annoyed, grabs Darby’s arm and brings him up to scoop for a BIG BACKBREAKER! Scorpio pushes on Darby in a backbreaker rack but Darby endures. Fans rally and duel as AEW goes picture in picture.

Darby fights free by pulling on Scorpio’s arm and then WRINGS him out! Darby clubs Scorpio, CHOPS him, then hobbles over to the corner, Darby whips, Scorpio reverses and Darby hits buckles hard! Both men are down but fans rally up. Scorpio drags Darby up, whips again, then body shots to a Russian Leg Sweep! Scorpio drops an ax handle, then drags Darby round for a leg hook full nelson! Darby endures, Scorpio puts more pressure on the arms, but Darby pushes back to a cover! TWO, and Scorpio changes things to a sleeper hold with body scissors. Darby endures again, fights up, but Scorpio shifts to a chinlock. Darby gets up but Scorpio shifts to a cobra twist!

Scorpio gets the bad leg and pulls it back for more leverage! Darby endures, fights against the hold, and AEW returns to single picture as fans rally and duel.

Scorpio drags Darby back up, hoists him to the top rope backwards, but Darby throws more elbows! Darby sends Scorpio down, adjusts and aims, COFFIN DROP INTO A POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!?!?

Scorpio has answers to Darby’s moves but not what will finish him! Scorpio drags Darby up, fireman’s carry, TK- NO! Cradle counter, DARBY WINS!!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

In the blink of an eye and by the seat of his pants, Darby keeps the title! Scorpio can’t believe it, but he has to accept it. Darby shows Scorpio respect because he deserves it, but Scorpio doesn’t like it! Scorpio trips Darby up and gets a HEEL HOOK! Darby is tapping but it’s too late! The referees rush out to pry Scorpio away but Darby’s bad leg suffers so much damage before they succeed! Scorpio cools off and then… smiles at what he just did! Will the Closer become something much more sinister now?


AEW prepares for a St. Patrick’s Day Slam!

After the confrontation we saw, Moxley and Kingston are united against Team Omega, and they’re going to team up against the Good Brothers! Will the Maniac and the Mad King get some semblance of revenge on Gallows & Anderson? Another confrontation results in a match tonight as Cody and Penta will face off 1v1! Will Penta do as he promised and cripple Cody? Plus, after seeing Big Money Matt sign two big bruisers, the expanded Hardy Party takes on Jurassic Express and Bear Country in a massive 10 Man Tag! Will this big match get Matt some of that big money back?

And after her successful in-ring debut alongside Shaq, Jade Cargill is back for her first singles match! Will the female titan strike down another mere mortal that thinks they can stop her? Then, last but far from least, Britt Baker and Thunder Rosa will settle things once and for all, in the UNSANCTIONED, LIGHTS OUT NO HOLDS BARRED main event!! Will Rosa finally break Britt and check off one of her goals for 2021?


It’s time for the Inner Circle War Council!

Chris Jericho and MJF lead the way for Jake Hager, Santana and Ortiz as fans sing Judas. Jericho says, “When any great army needs to change their course in the middle of a battle, they have a war council to decide the best possible way to continue on in the combat, and that’s what we’re doing tonight.” They’ve been in a bit of a decline the last few weeks, even the last few months, and it’s easily remedied. They are the smartest in the business today. Time for a new attitude, outlook and maybe even some new members? MJF wants Jericho to wait a moment. “With all due respect, I really don’t think we need to add a new member. In fact, quite the contrary.”

If MJF is being honest, he thinks that maybe they need to let someone go. Wait, Sammy Guevara returns?! Well, the Spanish God quit this team a few weeks ago but he’s suddenly back! Fans are excited to see Sammy but Jericho is a bit amazed. We all remember this guy, right? “SAMMY! SAMMY!” Well that’s funny, because Jericho said he never wanted to see or hear from him again, so what is he doing here? Sammy knows he’s the last person Jericho wants to see, and he knows Jericho isn’t happy with him. But Jericho needs to see something. Oh, is that so? Sammy has a lot of guts. Jericho says Sammy is DEAD to them! They don’t want him here!

Sammy tells Jericho to just listen. “After everything we’ve been through, from the first Dynamite ’til now. After everything we’ve done, I need you to listen to me! I need you to see this!” Just  look at the screen! Jericho looks at the titantron, and Sammy’s vlog plays? Sammy set up a camera in the Inner Circle’s room earlier tonight! And then we fast-forward to MJF meeting with the others, and he said tonight was the night. They’ve been talking about this for months, but it’s all agreed that there needs to be new leadership in the Inner Circle! And they know who that should be, right? They cut off the head of the snake, and give Jericho a little good-bye. They all agreed to it?!

MJF says he didn’t want Jericho to find out that way, but oh well. GET HIM! Hager, Santana and Ortiz step up to Sammy and Jericho! But then… They turn on MJF! Perhaps they set MJF up! MJF wants them to hold on, but Jericho tells him, “Shut up, you stupid son of a bitch!” Did MJF really think they don’t talk to each other every single day?! Fans chant, “You Deserve It!” at MJF as Jericho says, “You really don’t think we were waiting for you to hang yourself, MJ?” Jericho says that since he’s the one that brought MJF in, he’ll be the one to bring him out! Jericho shoves MJF down! MJF has fear in his eyes as he begs for mercy. “On behalf of Jericho and the Inner Circle, your ass is FIRED!”

MJF wants Jericho to wait! But Jericho says on top of that, the Inner Circle is going to give him an old school beatdown! But MJF wants Jericho to hear him out! MJF didn’t want to take over, he swears! He swears!! MJF is crying?! But MJF says it’s because he was too busy “building my own!” What!? The lights go out, and then when they come back up, Wardlow is here, with Tully Blanchard, FTR and Shawn Spears!! The Inner Circle turns around to basically stare down a bizarro version of themselves! And then they brawl!! FTR SMASHES beer bottles on Hager, Spears SMACKS Sammy with a chair, then everyone else brawl!

Spears SMACKS Sammy again, FTR and PNP brawl, and Hager is after Jericho! Spears wedges a chair into a corner, to CURBO STOMP Sammy into it! Wardlow digs his boots into Jericho, FTR POSTS Santana, and then mug Ortiz! Spears helps drag Ortiz down then Cash is after Santana! PNP get cuffed, Wardlow ROCKS Jericho, and MJF just watches from a corner. Wardlow drags Jericho up top, and gives him thumbs down! FALLING KNEE SMASH! FTR then drag PNP up, Tully goes up a corner, DOUBLE SPIKE PILEDRIVERS!! Fans chant “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but the damage has been done! MJF hops down and Wardlow drags Jericho up, for MJF to DYNAMITE DIAMOND PUNCH!

Jericho is bleeding from where the ring got him, and he reaches for Floyd the Baseball Bat. MJF stands on Jericho’s hand, Tully gets the bat up for MJF, and as Jericho tries to stand, bleeding all over himself, MJF JAMS Jericho with the bat, then BASHES him out of the ring! MJF tosses the bat aside, he and his circle loom over Jericho at the ramp, and then decide they’re not done with him! They drag Jericho to the stage and then to the side, for Wardlow to reel Jericho in! Wardlow POWERBOMBS Jericho off the stage!! Jericho crashes through spare tables, and MJF’s circle look down on him. Will a new force take over AEW?

My Thoughts:

What a powerful episode for AEW, especially to follow the PPV! Firstly, I like that they did address the lackluster explosion at the end of Revolution. Kingston and Moxley were able to laugh it off, Callis did a decent job of playing it off in kayfabe like it still worked out in their favor, and in a way it did, but I would’ve worded it differently. But we got a great moment with them all and then Christian Cage on top of it. I had the strangest feeling as things were being set up that Christian would immediately go for the world title, though that again flies in the face of the ranking system AEW loves to say matters. I do think Kingston & Moxley VS Good Brothers is going to be a great match next week.

Matt Jackson VS Fenix was a great opener, and it was a great move for Fenix to win that. I’m kinda hoping we get Nick VS Pac on the flipside soon, and then since they can’t drag the tag title match out to Double or Nothing in May, perhaps the title match happens on March 31st or April 7th. April 7th might be better to try and counterprogram WWE building up a huge week to WrestleMania. Penta starting beef with Cody was a really good move, too, and I almost want to see a trios match, Death Triangle VS Cody & The Bucks. All those matches could go either way, including the title match, but it’d make sense if the Bucks retained and made it to Double or Nothing or even All Out this year.

I won’t hold this against the episode, but HOLY HELL the technical difficulties during everything with QT, Johnson and Ethan Page. Were we getting audio from a basketball game happening somewhere? C’mon, TNT… But Johnson VS Ethan was a really good match, and Ethan is already put at a high level kicking out of Johnson’s finisher. QT’s turn is continuing to get interesting, as he just doesn’t even care about Johnson or Dustin and just walks away. I almost feel like QT and Ethan should just forces in a faction of their own and start a feud with the Nightmare Family since we’re not doing Nightmare Family VS Dark Order after the loss of Brodie Lee.

The Dark Order and Hangman had a really fun segment for as short as it was. I like that they’re also honoring Brodie Lee by having a riding mower. But I guess those other mowers from last year aren’t around anymore, so maybe Hangman can buy them all new ones and they can all ride together so that no one gets left behind. Hardy’s response kinda fits what I expected, with Hardy needing more cashflows, and that means more members of his stable. A little disappointed that it’s not The Hybrid2, but maybe whatever is keeping Angelico away is why they can’t do that now. Or if Angelico gets to come back in time, they also join up and it can be an insane 7v7 match with Dark Order and Hangman for Double or Nothing.

The Six Woman Tag was a lot of fun, especially Maki Itoh. Itoh-chan is definitely a comedic genius, and she does great as a character and wrestler. The Faces winning here makes sense after the Heels got the drop on them at Revolution. But then the Heels stand tall because they’re sore losers, and now we’re getting the first-ever Women’s Unsanctioned Match! Rosa VS Britt is going to be amazing, but ironically it won’t matter towards one of them going after the title because it’s “unsanctioned.” At the same time, Big Swole needs to be given her story with Shida because of that great promo about the rankings on the pre-PPV Dark. If it matters, make it matter and give Swole her shot!

The TNT Championship was awesome stuff, too, and it was incredible to see Scorpio have those counters. Darby getting a quick win off a cradle was definitely to keep Scorpio strong even in losing, and Scorpio is definitely turning. If he could do a Heel Hook that dangerous, he probably should’ve used it on Darby in the match, but maybe he will from now on, and in a rematch. Then, the War Council was great, especially with the swerves. It was a bit odd, though, for Sammy to have video evidence on MJF to show Jericho, but then Jericho technically knew all along because the Inner Circle talks privately. But then MJF swerves back to reveal his own group, and the beatdown was quite impressive. That should totally be how AEW looks to bring back Blood & Guts, or introduce a similar match, 5v5 to settle things between Inner Circle and MJF.

My Score: 9.5/10

Christian Cage speaks.

“Tonight on Collision, Darby, you’re challenging myself and Luchasaurus in a three way match for the TNT Championship. Let me remind you that Sting is not allowed at ringside and I don’t like your chances. We will remain the Face of TNT now and forever. Do you understand me?”


Ricky Starks speaks.

“Bryan Danielson, you have never tapped me out. I passed out. You’re talking to a guy that’s been to Heaven, so if you’re looking test God, look no further than Absolute Ricky Starks. Tonight, I put you six feet under.”

“Ricky Starks, you’re in a lot of trouble for challenging me to a Texas Death Match. A match where to win, you have to knock somebody down and keep them down. Here’s the thing, people have been trying to keep me down my entire career, and nobody has succeeded yet. And Ricky, you sure as Hell won’t succeed tonight either.” Will the American Dragon once again slay the Absolute?


AEW TNT Championship Triple Threat: Luchasaurus VS Christian Cage VS Darby Allin!

As the Relentless One just said, this might as well be a Handicap Match, because you can bet Captain Charisma and his Right Hand of Destruction are united in destroying Darby. Will Darby even survive this match? Or will he find a way back to former glory?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who really wears that title after this!

The bell rings and Darby is wary of his enemies. Fans rally for Darby, but Christian bails so this turns into a 1v1 match. Luchasaurus and Darby circle, and Luchasaurus taunts Darby with a test of strength. Darby throws POCKET SAND! And then he DIVES onto Christian! Darby RAMS Christian into steel steps, then puts him in the ring! Darby hurries to CODE RED! Cover, TWO!! Darby keeps moving and he DIVES onto Luchasaurus! Down goes the dinosaur! But Christian pokes Darby in the eyes, and HOTSHOTS him to the floor! Luchasaurus is up and he drags Darby over to RAM into railing!

Fans rally for Darby but Luchasaurus is on him again! Luchasaurus whips Darby into more railing! Fans actually duel as Luchasaurus fetches a chair for Christian then puts Darby in. Christian soaks up the cheers and jeers, then he sits Darby in the chair to CHOKE him on the ropes! Christian stands on Darby, the ref reprimands but there’s nothing to be done in a Triple Threat. Christian drags Darby up, and CHOKES him against the chair’s back! Christian says Darby did this to himself. But then Darby throws hands! Luchasaurus CHOKES Christian, then BACK SUPLEXES him and the chair!

Luchasaurus goes to cover but Christian tells him no, they need to do more damage. Luchasaurus goes out to fetch more items, but Christian covers Darby! TWO! Darby is still in this but Christian TOSSES him out! Christian goes out to stand Darby up, and CHOPS him against the railing! Darby staggers, Christian and Luchasaurus surround him, then they double whip him hard into steel steps! Darby tumbles up and over, fans boo Christian, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Christian flexes, then stalks Darby. Christian SMACKS Darby off steps, then Luchasaurus brings Darby around to CHOP against the apron. Darby flops over and Christian is there to whip him into more railing! Darby staggers all around, Christian & Luchasaurus stalk him to the other corner. Christian gets the chair again to JAM Darby! And again! Darby staggers and stumbles away but Christian follows after. Christian pushes Darby into the ring, then brings him up. Christian has Luchasaurus stand back. Christian talks trash right to Darby’s face, pie faces him and smears the face pain before he CHOPS and CHOPS!

Christian tells Luchasaurus what to do, then he runs at Darby. Darby dodges to send Christian out! Darby fires off on Luchasaurus, but Luchasaurus shoves him back and HEADBUTTS him down! Luchasaurus stands on Darby’s back! Darby endures, even as Luchasaurus steps all over him! Darby crawls to a corner, Luchasaurus brings him up and Christian throws hands on Darby! Collision returns to single picture as the mugging moves to the corner. Fans boo as Christian & Luchasaurus double whip Darby into a corner. Luchasaurus runs in but Darby dodges and Luchasaurus POSTS himself!

Fans fire up as Christian runs in, Darby dodges and he POSTS himself! Roll up, TWO! Oklahoma roll, TWO! Christian kicks low to suplex, but Darby slips out, SCORPION DEATH DROP! Fans fire up as Darby climbs! But Luchasaurus drags Christian to safety! So Darby just SUPER COFFIN SPLASHES!! Fans are thunderous as both men go down! Darby puts Luchasaurus in the ring, climbs up, and Luchasaurus stands. Darby MISSILE- NO, Luchasaurus catches him! JURASSIC- NO, Darby slips out! Darby BOOTS Luchasaurus, then hits a DIAMOND DUST! But Christian has the title belt!

Christian aims but Darby ducks! SHOTGUN! Down goes Christian! Darby runs in but Luchasaurus catches him, JURASSIC CHOKE SLAM! Darby flops out of the ring and Luchasaurus sees the belt. It is rightfully his, so he picks it up! Fans cheer that he finally holds HIS belt! Christian storms in but Luchasaurus won’t give it back! Christian asks for the belt back, fans say “IT’S YOUR BELT! IT’S YOUR BELT!” Luchasaurus still hands the belt over to Christian, but then Darby shoves Christian into Luchasaurus! And then Darby BELT SHOTS Luchasaurus!! Cover, TWO?!? Luchasaurus survives  but Darby PENALTY KICKS!

Darby goes up to COFFIN DROP!! But Christian returns to POST Darby! Cover on Luchasaurus, CHRISTIAN WINS!!

Winner: Christian Cage, by pinfall (NEW AEW TNT Champion)

Well, at least now Christian will be rightfully holding onto this belt. Sleazy as he is, Captain Charisma truly reigns as the Face of TNT, will Darby have to move on to a new goal? As for Luchasaurus, he sees Christian’s hand be raised, and then Christian hugs him? Well, when one wins, they both win, right? Christian has Luchasaurus lift him onto his shoulders, then Christian raises the belt high above his head. Will Luchasaurus ever be his own man? Er, dinosaur.


Backstage interview with The Don Callis Family.

Alex Marvez is with Konosuke Takeshita, Sammy Guevara and Don Callis himself, and says that the wrestling world is buzzing with what we saw on Rampage. Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho are united, along with Kota Ibushi, and challenged the DCF for WrestleDream! Don says it makes him sick just thinking about Omega and Jericho on the same side, when Don is the one who put them both on the map! And now, they’re name dropping Kota Ibushi. Ibushi is a wrestling legend, but his weakness is Kenny Omega. Kenny Omega loves Kota Ibushi, they are closer than brothers, and that kind of emotion makes them weak! They always have been!

Don isn’t worried. As great as Omega, Jericho and Ibushi are, Don has Sammy Guevara, who left Jericho laying. Don has Konosuke, “The Alpha,” who earned that name when he beat Omega twice in one week! And Don has another family member. This man beat Jericho and Omega in the course of two months, and that is WILL OSPRAEY! So you want WrestleDream to become a nightmare? Don doesn’t think so. Omega, Ibushi & Jericho will face the strongest Don Callis Family ever! See you in Seattle, where they finish it once and for all!!


Backstage interview with Christian & Luchasaurus.

Collision returns as Tony Schiavone congratulates the NEW TNT Champion. Christian says yes, every legitimate title defense has solidified him as the UNDISPUTED TNT Champion! He dedicates this victory to Nick Wayne’s mom, and Nick Wayne’s late father, who must’ve been cheering Christian on from Heaven. But anyway, Christian is finally finished with Darby once and for all, bring on the next challenger! Actually, Tony Khan just announced that Christian’s first defense will be at WrestleDream in Seattle. And it will be a classic match-up. They’ve gone back and forth, so this will be BEST 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS!

Christian is furious! He storms off to find Tony Khan, but will it matter? Will Darby finally have justice against Captain Charisma?


Hook & Rob Van Dam VS Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker w/ Jake Hager & Anna Jay!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil just beat the former Jericho Appreciation Society members last night in a Mixed Six Tag with help from his new friends. But now he joins forces with an old friend of his dad’s! Will Hook and RVD prove they’re a one of a kind team? Or will they underestimate the sports… enner-tay-ners?

The teams sort out and fans are fired up for RVD already. RVD lets Hook start against Daddy Magic, though, and fans still rally behind Hook. They tie up, Menard arm-drags, and Menard gloats. Fans boo but Hook resets with Menard. They tie up, Hook waistlocks, hammerlocks, and he trips Menard to a facelock. Menard fights up but Hook spins and hammerlocks and headlocks and hits the takeover! Hook then goes for an arm, but Menard fights against the top wristlock. Menard knees low, tags Parker, and Parker whips. Hook holds ropes, ELBOWS Parker back, but Anna trips Hook up! Parker CLOBBERS Hook and stomps away!

Fans boo, the ref reprimands, but Parker tags Menard. They double whip Hook to a corner, Parker whips so Menard can whip him into the corner but Hook dodges! Hook then wrenches Menard, and points to the corner! Fans fire up as Hook tags in RVD! RVD takes the handoff, he wrenches to a wristlock and fans rally up. RVD brings Menard around, arm-drags him away, but then Parker CLOBBERS RVD! Fans boo but Menard throws hands. Menard whips, RVD rolls off Menard’s back and body scissor roll-up! TWO, but RVD blocks a kick to WHEEL KICK! Parker kicks RVD, but RVD blocks the buckle bump and KICKS back!

RVD goes up to JUMP KICK! “You Still Got It!” RVD watches the ex-JAS regroup, but they get away before he can dive! So he just gets everyone to join in on a “ROB! VAN! DAM!” Hager throws a fit for his team, but Collision goes picture in picture.

RVD waits as Menard & Parker talk strategy. Menard slowly returns, talks some trash, and he seems to call out Hook. RVD obliges and tags Hook in. Hook and Menard circle, then Menard kicks low! Menard whips Hook into Parker’s boot! The ref reprimands but Menard stomps Hook around. Menard soaks up the cheers and jeers, and then distracts the ref so Parker can CHOKE Hook! RVD protests but Parker tags in to throw hands. Parker JABS, then whips Hook to DROPKICK him down! Cover, TWO! Hook is still in this while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns as Parker tags Menard. They double whip Hook but Hook holds ropes to KICK Menard and TOSS Parker! Menard rushes in but Hook TOSSES him out! Hook hurries but Parker intercepts with a tackle! Fans boo but Parker drags Hook away from RVD. Hook wrenches free, clinches, and hits the EXPLODER! Fans fire up while Hook and Parker are down! Hook crawls, Anna shouts at Parker to move, but Menard crawls in as fast as he can. Hot tag to RVD! RVD rallies on Daddy Magic! Then he SUPERKICKS Cool Hand Ange! WHEEL KICK for Menard! RVD runs, for the ROLLING THUNDER!

RVD covers but Menard kicks it apart! Fans boo Menard but he brings RVD up. Menard scoops, RVD slips free and blocks a kick to step over and WHEEL KICK! Fans fire up as RVD goes to a corner. But then Anna distracts the ref and Hager has a chair! RVD dodges to KICK the chair into Hager! Hook gets in Anna’s face, Parker storms up on him, but Hook turns it around, REDRUM!! RVD goes up, takes aim, FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH!! Cover, #HookVanDam wins!

Winners: Hook & Rob Van Dam, by pinfall

Michigan’s own comes back home and wins big! Will RVD have one more title run in him? Will Hook’s newest run not be stopped?


Eddie Kingston speaks.

He has two titles to defend now, with the ROH World Championship in one hand and the NJPW Strong Openweight Championship in the other. And he knows WrestleDream is AEW’s love letter to the late, great Antonio Inoki. The Mad King wants to face the man who best embodies Inoki’s vision today, and that is Katsuyori Shibata. This won’t be just about the NJPW Openweight but also the ROH World title. He wants Shibata to bring his all because that’s what Eddie is gonna do. But then, will Eddie remain the two belt king? Or will we soon see The Wrestler become a TRIPLE CHAMPION?


The Dark Order speaks.

John Silver says, “This world has gotten outta control.” Alex Reynolds says it’s just too much, too fast, and it needs to stop. Evil Uno asks us who we will turn to “when it’s all done?” Happy music plays over destruction and desolation. “You need structure. You need rules. You need order. The Dark Order! Because The Dark Order is good! And we’re here for you!” Uno sneaks in some Italian, “But not forever.” Will you trust these creepy grins? Will you #JoinDarkOrder?


The Kingdom speaks.

Matt Taven says “Neck health is important!” Best Friends are a bunch of liars! When Trent hurt his neck, was Chuck by his bedside? NO! And now these Melvins wanna take away what The Kingdom earned, what they deserve, their shot at the ROH World Tag Team titles!? They will show these dorks what people who don’t celebrate neck health deserve! And Mike Bennett says Chuckie T got some of that last night. A punch to the wiener and a piledriver! So next Saturday is piledrivers in support of neck health! And then they will see how close Best Friends really are, how strong they really are. They aren’t stronger than The Kingdom, and they damn sure ain’t #NeckStrong!


Julia Hart w/ Brody King VS Kiera Hogan!

The Lady of the House was truly Hartless against Skye Blue last night, bringing out The Babe with The Power. However, Willow Nightingale was then attacked backstage to keep her from competing tonight! So Skye’s other friend is stepping up! Will the Hottest Flame burn this witch down? Or will the House always win?

The bell rings and Kiera rushes up to ROCK Julia! And again and again! The fans rally up as Kiera whips Julia into ropes, runs side to side and HIP ATTACKS! Kiera bumps Julia off buckles, waistlocks, but Julia bucks the O’Conner. Julia runs up to throw Kiera down by her hair! Fans rally, Julia stands on Kiera’s hair and pulls the arms! The ref reprimands, Julia steps off at 4 to then stomp Kiera down! Brody says to stay on her so Julia CLUBS away on Kiera! Julia kicks Kiera around, drags her up and SMACKS her off the mat! Julia stomps Kiera again, drags her back up, then snap suplexes! Julia grins as she then rains down fists!

The ref reprimands about closed fists so Julia lets off. To then let off with one more! Julia paces around Kiera, brings her up, but Kiera throws hands! Kiera ROCKS Julia, BOOTS her, then ROUNDHOUSES! Julia wobbles, Kiera runs in, but Julia spins Kiera for an STO! Standing MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Kiera is still in this but Julia is still on her with a chinlock! Kiera endures, fans rally up, and Kiera fights up. Kiera throws body shots, blocks a punch to give a punch, then ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Julia! And again! Kiera runs in to SHOTGUN Kiera into the corner! Fans fire up as Kiera goes corner to corner, but Julia sends her into buckles!

Julia drags Kiera up to throw her by her hair again. Brody says keep on Kiera, so Julia whips her to a corner. BACK ELBOW! Julia grins as she snapmares, and then KICKS Kiera in the back! Julia drags Kiera up, SMACKS her off the mat, and then runs, to BLINDSIDER! Julia says the House always wins. HARTLESS STRETCH!! Kiera taps, Julia wins!

Winner: Julia Hart, by submission

A 25-0 win streak for The Lady of the House, but she isn’t satisfied! She puts Kiera back into HARTLESS!! But here comes Skye Blue! She was on the other end of this so she’s making the save now! But again, Julia hides behind Brody. But then Brody moves and Julia BLACK MISTS Skye!! Julia strikes again! Brody asks, “Do you see this? Do you see this!? This will not end! This violence will not end! 25 matches, over two dozen bodies stacked, and this will not end until we get to the one. The last loss! KRIS STATLANDER! Next Sunday, Seattle, Washington, WrestleDream, put your TBS title on the line. Or the body count continues to rise.”

But Julia wants Kris to understand: The House ALWAYS wins. Will the Galaxy’s Greatest look to end the streak? Or will the TBS Championship fade to black?


The Righteous speak.

Death walks. You dig what they’re saying? Ol’ Vincent & Dutch are pure, are divine, and are the corpse of decency nailed to a post of greed and moral decay, draped under the shadow of purity. But now they expose MJF & Adam Cole, and purify the lie that is “Better Than You, Baybay.” You dig what they’re sayin’, man?


Jay White w/ Bullet Club Gold VS Andrade El Idolo!

The Switchblade and his Bang Bang Gang called out The Face of Latino Wrestling, saying White’s reputation is more widespread than Andrade’s. Will White make Andrade famous for losing to him? Or will Andrade become famous for beating Jay White?

Ortiz speaks.

“All In, Wembley Stadium. Did to me what you’ve been doing to me the last 14 years of my life. You used me, then you walked away. Sure did have a lot to say on social media. Sure did have a lot to say on TV. And then when I confronted you… Called you over and looked you in your eyes, you walked away. Tough keyboard warrior. You did what you always do: You ran from your problems. Guess what? You’re not gonna be able to run much longer.” Will there be a clash of the proud ‘n’ powerful on the horizon?


Shane Taylor Promotions speaks.

Shane Taylor himself says that on paper, Shane Taylor VS Keith Lee may not seem like much of a rivalry. But Keith knows better, doesn’t he? They came into ROH at the same time, established “The Pretty Boy Killers” and DOMINATED the tag division. Lee Moriarty says to tell ’em! Shane says that from ANS to War Machine to The Briscoes, they took ’em all out! But then Keith went to go work for “the other billionaire,” while Shane stayed and became an ROH legend! The world got to see Keith be limitless, but now it is Shane’s time on the biggest stage! And the only thing standing in the way IS Keith.

Shane says if it is to feed his family, then he will put Keith in the GROUND! Before Shane takes everything Keith has, Keith must step in the ring with The Best Damn Technical Wrestler, Lee Moriarty. Will #TAIGASTYLE bring Keith down to size? Or will Moriarty #BaskInHisGlory?


AEW World Tag Team Championships: FTR VS The Workhorsemen!

The open challenge of opportunities continues as Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler give JD Drake & Anthony Henry their shot. But with WrestleDream and a rematch with Aussie Open on the horizon, will the Top Guys get caught off guard? Or will FTR be bringing the gold to Seattle?

Speaking of, Aussie Open is here! Kyle Fletcher & Mark Davis are dressed to the nines and they join commentary to watch this one with their own eyes. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who are the true Top Guys!

The teams sort out and Cash starts against Henry. They circle, feel things out, and Cash denies Henry a leg takedown. Henry comes back, gets around to a waistlock, but Cash fights up to facelock. Henry slips free, gets around again, facelocks again, and then gator rolls to hammerlock! Cash has the ROPEBREAK, and the two separate. They reset, circle, and tie up. Henry gets an arm to wrench it but Cash slips around to fireman’s carry takeover! Henry headscissors but Cash kips up. Henry wrenches, wristlocks, but Cash rolls, kips up and wrenches to WRING Henry out! Fans cheer but Henry keeps moving!

Henry kips up to then back drop, step over, and Oklahoma Roll! TWO, and Henry DROPKICKS Cash down! Henry drags Cash up, wrenches, tag to JD. They mug Cash, JD whips Cash toa corner but Cash avoids the chop! JD avoids a chop, and the two stare down. Tag to Dax, and fans rally up. Dax and JD step up, tie up, and Dax headlocks. JD powers out, Dax RAMS JD, but JD CHOPS! Fans fire up seeing how hard that one hit! JD puts Dax in the corner to CHOP again! JD eggs Dax on so Dax CHPOS! And CHOPS! AND CHOPS! Dax whips, JD reverses to atomic drop, then scoop and SLAM! FALLING HEADBUTT! Cover, ONE!!

Dax hangs in there but JD looms over him. JD stomps Dax, throws hands, then tags Henry. The Workhorsemen CHOP and KICK and KICK and KICK! Dax snarls and eggs Henry on so Henry KICKS! Dax CHOPS! Henry KICKS! Dax CHOPS! They go back and forth, KICK and CHOP! Henry SOBATS, but Dax suplexes to a BRAINBUSTER! Both men are down and fans fire up again! Henry wobbles but he tags JD.

JD runs to swing on Cash but Cash dodges, only for the LARIAT to get him! JD keeps moving, SHINING WIZARD! Dax ends up in the Workhorsemen corner, and JD CANNONBALLS! Tag to Henry, Henry goes up, and JD tags back in. Henry DIVING DOUBLE STOMPS! Then Henry FLIES to take out Cash! JD is up< SCRAP METAL MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! Dax survives being squashed and the fans lose their minds just from seeing it! But wait, Cash has Henry, GORY BOMB to the apron!! Dax runs up on JD but JD ROCKS him! JD goes up, to FLYING- POWERBOMB!! Step through into SHARPSHOOTER!!

JD endures, fans rally, but JD taps! FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by submission (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

Aussie Open says okay, then it’s on! WrestleDream will mark the anniversary of the instant classic back at Royal Quest! Mark Davis gets a mic to say, “AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!” The fans reply “OI OI OI!” Davis says congrats, and keep those belts bright. Because FTR is in the fight of their lives! Fletcher knows Aussie Open says it a lot, but FTR once said themselves that Aussie Open is the best tag team in the world today! And they’ve heard the complaints, “What happened to the Aussie Open that took FTR to the limit in a five star classic?” Well, they admit they haven’t lived up tot he hype, but that is why they challenged FTR to this match!

Aussie Open needs to prove to to the people, they need to prove it to FTR, and they need to prove it to themselves that they ARE everything they say they are! Dax has a mic to say yeah, okay. Aussie Open were sacrificial lambs to Max and his best friend. They were sacrificial lambs to Chris Jericho and his best friend. But what Dax wants from them, what he is begging them on his hands and knees, he wants the biggest, baddest bastards in the world, because on October 1st, WrestleDream, Aussie Open faces THE BEST TAG TEAM IN HISTORY! Fans cheer that! And Dax says if Aussie Open don’t bring that, then don’t even show up. #TopGuysOut.


Backstage interview with CJ Perry.

Lexi Nair is with Miro’s hot and flexible wife, and says this is the first time we’ve seen her since she surprised everyone at All In London, which was also the first time anyone in wrestling has seen her in two years. So the question is, why now? CJ says that The Redeemer, who she loves so much, has lost his way. She wanted to help him be champion again. But unfortunately, he’s rather preoccupied with the past and… temptations. But then in steps Miro! He says his only temptation is her. And her temptation is this: the lights, the cameras, the fame. It changes you. CJ says she loves the hustle, the puzzle, the chase, and helping those she loves! It makes her come alive!

Miro says his righteous path was to save “them.” And if CJ stays, that means he’d have to… To what? Save her? What were their wedding vows again? Well, they each have to do what they each have to do. They will each walk their own paths. But if there is any love in Miro’s heart for CJ, then please, do not lay a hand on any of her future clients she’s going to manage here. Okay? Can he promise that? Miro leaves without giving an answer. Will pro-wrestling come between husband and wife?


BREAKING NEWS for WrestleDream!

Bryan runs in to FULL METAL KNEE!!! Starks is down, and the count begins! Bryan crawls away at 5 of 10, drags himself up at 8, and the count hits TEN! Bryan wins again!!

Winner: Bryan Danielson

Starks wanted revenge, but he only got another vicious fight and crushing defeat. Big Bill and Wheeler Yuta come out to check on their respective allies. Bill helps Starks stand, as does Yuta with Bryan. Yuta and Bill get at each other, but Starks has them all stand down. Is this Starks’ way of showing Bryan respect for the absolute war they just went through? And where does Starks go from here?

My Thoughts:

A great Collision here, and some more added to WrestleDream just as I was hoping. Julia had a good match with Kiera, she mists Skye, but instead of calling out Willow for a PPV match, she wants Kris and the TBS Championship. That will be a good match for WrestleDream but I feel like Kris wins that. Really good tag title match from FTR VS Workhorsemen but of course FTR wins so that their match with Aussie Open is now a title match. No idea who wins that but we all know it will be a match of the year contender. And I think something rather interesting is that Fatal 4 Way contenders tag match, and that detail about a title match “at any time.” Is a team going to win and then Money in the Bank those AEW tag titles away from whoever wins? Because that’d be awesome, actually.

Speaking of which, really fun tag match of Hook & RVD beating Menard & Parker. Of course Hook & RVD win, which helps give Hook & Cassidy momentum going into that WrestleDream Fatal 4. RVD is probably in AEW to be part of the fun, have more of these really good matches, but I can’t really say he is actually after another title reign of some kind. Then big stuff from Eddie Kingston, putting up TWO championships up in his match with Shibata. That’s one huge first defense for the ROH World Championship, but I would think Eddie retains. As awesome as it’d be to see one man with three singles titles, there’s no good story of Eddie losing the belts he worked so hard to have so soon.

Don Callis has a good promo in response to the Six Man Tag challenge, but of course Will Ospreay is the third man, even though I would’ve loved for them to bring in someone really good that really needs something to do. But whatever, Ospreay brings star power, and there is story here already where Ospreay’s faced all three men, Omega, Ibushi & Jericho. It’ll also be an awesome match with Ospreay in it, but I would think Jericho & The Golden Lovers win. It’d also be great if Daniel Garcia helped tip the scales in Jericho’s favor, completing the double turn of Garcia and Guevara and perhaps giving us Garcia VS Guevara.

Really good TNT Championship Triple Threat that was really a handicap match. While I was thinking Christian was going to force Luchasaurus to give him the win, Christian instead opportunistically takes the win from Darby in where he has to pin Luchasaurus. And yet we’re getting a Best 2 Out of 3 Falls match at WrestleDream. That will make WrestleDream even longer, but maybe that is where it all comes to a head with Nick Wayne being in this story. Great match from White VS Andrade, but of course Bullet Club Gold helps White win that one. I know there hasn’t been a lot of interaction between Andrade and La Faccion Ingobernable since Andrade turned Face, but this would be the time for LFI to show their new aggression while also helping Andrade against BCG.

And of course, a great Last Man Standing match in the main event. Oh, yeah, that was a Last Man Standing match they dressed up as Texas Death even though it wasn’t like we weren’t going to notice. Literally earlier this year, AEW Revolution, Hangman VS Moxley, THEIR Texas Death Match was Knockout, Standing Count or Submission/Verbal Forfeit. But I guess since they already played their hand of Starks taking a loss by fainting, meaning Starks would never tap out or say “I Quit,” they could only go with the KO/ten count finish. Still a great match, but I’m just a stickler for labeling things what they are, and this as Last Man Standing, not Texas Death. But I did like Starks having Bill stand down. Makes me think that Starks could be a future ally to the BCC.

My Score: 8.9/10

It’s an all new QTV.

Harley Cameron asks if they wanna see her impersonation of a hot dog. Uh, sure. Harley just goes rigid. Huh. What does Joe Blow think? Uh- Johnny TV springs on the scene and says they must’ve had a great time in Montreal. Wait, Solo wasn’t invited to that. Oh, uh, that sucks. But let’s rrrroll the footage! Harley says this is awkward, but that only works when she asks for it. “RRRRRRROLL~ the footage, gov’nah!” Footage rolls of QT Marshall defending his title in Lutte Academie, the French Canadian wrestling indie. QT pounded that guy’s ass like a turkey! Oh, hey, nice sunglasses, Solo! Remember the handshake? Hecc yeah!

They do the shake, blast off, and then QT texts! He needs a tag partner for next week! Someone with fresh breath, long hair, and has known for a long time. Someone he can trust not matter what. Solo says that’s him! It has to be! No, bro, that’s Johnny! Gotta go, see you next week. Awkward… But will the combined powers of QT & Johnny be unstoppable?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

And he says that after Dynamite, this guy has a lot to answer for. Though, we already knew he was a snake in the grass. Ladies and gentlemen… Don Callis. Fans boo as the patriarch of the Don Callis Family walks out with “The Alpha,” Konosuke Takeshita and goes to the ring. Schiavone has to admit, Callis is many times a step ahead, and he is eating up how the fans all around the world just HATE him! Schiavone says Callis deserves all of it. Callis takes the mic and fans boo as he says just wants to say… “A few weeks ago, the wrestling world was abuzz! The wrestsling world was abuzz at my so-called pursuit of Chris Jericho.

“I didn’t end up with Jericho, but I ended up with the man I really wanted, the newest member of the Don Callis Family… SAMMY! GUEVARAAA~!” The fallen Spanish God makes his way out now, dressed to impress. Fans boo more as Sammy joins his “family” in the ring. Sammy soaks up all the heat, but Schiavone asks, “You actually call this man family?” Sammy says he can’t hear Schiavone, but that might be from all the booing. Sammy tells Don, “Believe it or not, I hated you. I hated you for a long time.

“I hated you almost as much as they hated you. And it’s because this whole time, I thought you were trying to rip apart my family. But really, you were just trying to show me I never really had one. Until now!” They hug and fans boo more. Sammy says why did he betray Jericho on Wednesday? The reason is because for the past four years, he has been holding Sammy back! Jericho has taken Sammy for granted, just like all the fans have! Fans boo more but Sammy says yeah, yeah, yeah. Last year, it was “F YOU SAMMY!” Earlier this year, it was “LET’S GO, SAMMY!” Well Sammy is done with such fickleness! He doesn’t need the fans!

Sammy is done trying to earn the fans’ love. He has a hot, hot wife, a beautiful baby girl and a fat bank account! Fans boo Sammy but Sammy says Jericho is DEAD to him, and never wants to see him again! But wait! Judas plays and fans fire up! Jericho is here, and he rushes the DCF! Jericho DECKS Konosuke, ROCKS Sammy, fires off on Konosuke again to TOSS him out, then he ROCKS Sammy! Sammy scurries away but Callis CLUBS Jericho! Jericho scowls at Callis and fans say Callis F’d up now! But Konosuke returns to SMACK Jericho with a chair! And again! And again! And again!!

Fans boo but then Sammy has Konosuke stop. Because Sammy takes the chair to SMACK Jericho now! And again! And again!! Sammy unleashes that resentment and rage! Konosuke drags Jericho up, Sammy helps, and Callis tells Jericho this is what he gets! Callis throws punches, but hurts his own hand! So he brings out the SCREWDRIVER!! Fans freak out, but here comes KENNY OMEGA!! The Cleaner is back, with a metal pipe!! Omega runs the DCF off and fans are thunderous! Jericho staggers up to his feet and he bumps into Kenny. Both men are on guard, but upon seeing who it is, Jericho cools off.

Omega drops the pipe, and he nods before leaving. Will Omega and Jericho see that the enemy of their enemy is truly a friend in the fight against the treacherous, disgusting and conniving Don Callis?


Rampage returns as Alex Marvez finds Kenny Omega.

Marvez says Omega and Jericho, in the same ring together, working together against Don Callis! Kenny stomps Marvez there. Do they really think Kenny did any of that for Jericho? That he cares about Jericho? This is bigger than Jericho! This is about Kenny taking care of Callis. But then Jericho walks over. Jericho tells Kenny that he says this once: he appreciates Kenny making that save, but he also knows the reason it happened. Just as Kenny was saying, this is not about them becoming friends. This entire company was based on the Omega VS Jericho rivalry. But now, something that Callis never thought would happen: Jericho and Omega are UNITED in taking Callis out!

The match Callis put together in Tokyo, it is now a nightmare come to life. And as far as Sammy goes, he is the real Judas. But so Jericho suggests they team up for real and take out the Don Callis Family, at WrestleDream! Omega tells Callis that he stabbed Omega in the back, betrayed his best friend in Jericho, and threatened someone Kenny loves in Kota Ibushi. That scar on Callis’ head that he blames on Omega, after they’re done with him, Callis will look like Freddy Krueger. WrestleDream, October 1st, will become a Wrestle Nightmare. DCF VS Jericho, Omega and Ibushi! Who you got?! They’ll be waiting.

Mike Santana speaks.

“Now it’s time for you to understand what this all truly means to me. Going away for this injury was the easy part. Handling what goes on in here (the heart) and up here (the mind) was the hard part. That was the true test. I spent 30 DAYS staring out a treatment center window, wondering just where my life went. And I realized I’ve survived way too damn much to just piss it all away. And here I am, for the world to see. And I’m hungrier than ever. Everybody is food. You get in between me and my money, I will put you down. You get in between me and feeding my daughter, I put you down.

“And realize this: Whether it’s here, whether it’s anywhere, I’m gonna get mine. If you don’t like it, you fight me or fire me! But you have two options: Either get down, or lay down.” There is a fire raging inside Mike Santana, will he use it to blaze a trail to the top of the mountain?

Winners: The Hung Bucks, by pinfall (NEW ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions)

The Elite wins big, but Hangman goes right back to glaring at Swerve! Pyro goes off to celebrate The Hung Bucks becoming TWO-TIME Six Man Tag Team Champions, having ended one of the most dominant trios in either AEW or ROH! But this doesn’t change what is coming. Hangman and Swerve will put pen to paper on Wednesday to make their WrestleDream match official. Will Swerve’s House have something waiting for the Cowboy in Colorado?

My Thoughts:

A great two hours for Rampage here, though I am not going to advocate for this being a regular thing. Great opening tag from Darby & Sting VS Christian & Luchasaurus, and I like that Nick Wayne costs Christian this match. Darby taking on Christian and Luchasaurus in that TNT Championship Triple Threat which will really is a handicap match could also be a way to hand the feud off to where Christian has matches with Nick Wayne over this “Your dad is dead, I will be a better dad” gimmick. Now I don’t know if that means Darby wins the title or not, but it feels more likely he loses since Christian and Luchasaurus are going to work together.

Great Mixed Six but of course Kris & OrangeHook win. This was the first outing of Cassidy & Hook as a team, so they weren’t going to lose, and certainly not to the former Jericho Appreciation Society. And while Hook is FTW Champion, this does feel like they’ll eventually make it to some tag title match so that Cassidy can add to his resume. Great Fatal 4 Tag, but The Righteous winning was a big surprise to me. I thought WrestleDream would be when they pull the trigger on The Kingdom VS MJF & Cole and that pushes things towards a brochacho break-up. Seems not, they might be saving that for Full Gear in LA. And Kingdom might bide their time with a feud with Best Friends.

Good promo from Callis and Sammy, and really good stuff with Jericho going after them all, and then Kenny making the save. I was a little confused as to where Kota Ibushi was supposed to come into this until Jericho made the challenge of a Six Man Tag a la All In London. But at the same time, it prompts the Don Callis Family to grow, as it should, and maybe Callis keeps it a surprise until WrestleDream. Really good promo from Mike Santana before he of course beat Bronson, and I really like that Ortiz appeared. People have been wondering how much shoot and how much work we’re seeing in their social media exchanges, but I would think this hints at it being more a worked shoot, playing off the tension that has perhaps already been resolved.

Really good AEW Trios title match, with Dark Order looking good in their new gear, white with purple highlights. But I figured The Acclaimed would retain, they’re not losing on TV. Good match from Skye VS Julia, and Julia winning was only a slight surprise given all the momentum Skye’s been building. But Willow making the save was good stuff, and I really do think we need someone to be feuding with Willow over her winning the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Should’ve been doing that the whole time, but whether it’s AEW or ROH, Tony Khan’s got the book and we’ve all talked about those issues.

And a great main event for the ROH World Six Man titles, but with how fast and furious the Hung Bucks were going at the start of the match, I really thought they were losing. Swerve showed up, he could’ve easily screwed Hung Bucks over, but he was putting it on Hangman to mess things up and that actually cost The Mogul Embassy. I was talking this whole time about how that kinda buries ROH, and unless The Hung Bucks show up on like next week’s ROH episode, I still hold to that. Adam Cole & MJF haven’t been on ROH TV even though they’re the tag champs, so it just makes ROH seem like an afterthought despite them constantly using the various ROH champions on AEW programming. And if The Hung Bucks beat the near unbeatable Embassy, who is even going to beat the Bucks without cheating so, so hard?

My Score: 8.9/10
