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!

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.

“Welcome to Collision. Welcome to the one year anniversary of Collision. That’s right, it’s been 365 days since I singlehandedly put this show on the map when I won the TNT Championship int he very first episode, and went on a run with the TNT Championship that will never, ever be seen again.

And in the spirit of usual unpredictability, on the eve of the most important holiday of the year, Father’s Day, I guarantee you, Christian Cage’s Collision is going to end up being… very special.” Just what does The Patriarch have in mind for “his” show?

 

8 Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS Rocky Romero, Lio Rush & TMDK!

Jon Moxley is still IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Wheeler Yuta is still ROH Pure Champion, and both Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli are still bad, bad men! The BCC is looking to still be the baddest group around, but will they be rolling on towards Forbidden Door? Or will Azucar, The Bad Child and the NEW Undisputed NJPW Tag Team Champions prove they’re just a little bit badder?

Claudio powers Lio around to TOSS into the DEATH RIDER!! Cover, BCC wins!

Winners: Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

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

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

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

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

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

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

 

No Disqualifications: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by referee stoppage

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

 

Hechicero w/ The Gates of Agony VS Dalton Castle

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

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

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

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

Winner: Hechicero, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Dante Martin.

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

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

 

The Patriarchy is in the ring.

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

The Bang Bang Gang speaks.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Hikaru Shida speaks.

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

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS Anthony Henry!

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

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

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

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

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by submission

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Austin tags in, then he tags Colten. The Gunns get Brody up, whip him to ropes, but Brody denies the 3:10 with a LARIAT! And another LARIAT! Juice runs up, but into a BOSS MAN SLAM!

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

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

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.8/10

Storm breaks through Iron Will Windsor, and revels in the praise of her adoring public. She also holds Mariah close, but will she still have both once she passes through The Forbidden Door? Or will the Fighting Gravure Idol steal more than just the spotlight?

 

Backstage interview with Harley Cameron.

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

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

 

AEW hears from Thunder Rosa and Deonna Purrazzo.

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

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

 

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

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

The trios sort out, Tupu starts against Kaun, and the two circle. Liona distracts Tupu and Kaun DROPKICKS Tupu into the corner! Kaun CHOPS, then fires off forearms!

Then the Gates get Tupu up to CLOSE THE GATES!

Cage drags Marston over, and the trio TRIPLE SLAMS him! Kaun covers, The Cage of Agony wins!

Winners: The Cage of Agony, by pinfall

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

 

Rocky Romero VS Shota Umino!

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

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

Then a basement dropkick! The fans cheer and Shota does a dance similar to Mercedes Mone’s! Shota stomps Rocky around, CLUBS him, then stalks him to ropes.

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

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

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

Winner: Satnam Singh, by pinfall

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

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

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

But Lethal still hits a CUTTER! But that wasn’t lethal enough, so Lethal handsprings again! LETHAL- NO, Pac dodges to LARIAT!! And then, BRUTALIZER!! Lethal is caught, he QUITS, Pac wins!!

Winner: Pac, by submission

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
