The bell rings, fans are fired up already and dueling between “Let’s Go, Christian!” “S C U!” Christian and Kaz circle, tie up, and go around! Fans are loving this already as Kaz puts Christian on ropes then in a corner. The ref counts, Kaz lets off clean and fans cheer again.

The Heavy Metal Rebel isn’t pulling any punches, so to speak, with Christian, and the ring count is climbing. Christian sits up at 5 of 10 and Kaz holds the ropes open for the “old man,” until he’s actually on the apron. Kaz swings but Christian ducks, only to shoulder into the guillotine leg drop! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Christian was too close, Kaz keeps him closer with a cravat and neck wrench. Kaz twists Christian’s head as fans rally up.

The two slowly rise, time is running out on the limit, but Christian gets the chicken wings! He turns Kaz, Kaz shoves to get his chicken wing! But Christian rolls off the hold, POSTS Kaz, then gets the arms and turns, KILLSWITCH!! Cover, Christian wins!

Winner: Christian Cage, by pinfall

And that’s the Instant Classic’s first win in AEW, and in seven YEARS! It was a lot of hard work, but will Christian prove he can outwork everyone and keep going?

 

AEW hears from Darby Allin and Sting.

“The truth is the truth. Well here’s the real truth, Matt. The truth is, your body’s breaking down, and you feel like you don’t got what it takes anymore. This whole ‘Big Money Matt’ is a reflection of all your insecurities.” Matt Hardy used to earn people’s respect through his sacrifices, and inspired generation after generation. Now he just tries to buy respect. “But all the money in the world cannot buy you real trust, real friends, and real respect.” String makes it rain bills as Darby, in a Hardy cut-out mask, says Hardy must earn Darby’s respect, “because your money doesn’t mean shit to me!” Will the Relentless and the Icon bankrupt the Hardy Family Office?

 

Jade Cargill speaks.

“You know, Velvet, when I first stepped foot here in AEW, before I beat your ass on national TV, I saw that you were shook. Because when you first saw me, like everybody else, you knew I have ‘it.’ When I show up, I walk like money, I talk like money and I look like money.” And when #TK booked her, she made that money. She understands that it’s hard to accept Velvet isn’t better than her idol. So Velvet can go ahead, run on the treadmill, lift the weights, and keep talking that shit week after week. Nobody can beat Jade because she is that woman, she is #THATBitch!

 

Exhibition Match, Arn Anderson as Special Referee: QT Marshall VS Cody Rhodes!

The Gifted came off more like the disgruntled as he vented about his standing and treatment within the Nightmare Family. He called out the American Nightmare to a match, and Cody was willing to give him this exhibition. Members of the Nightmare Factory are ringside to watch their two mentors battle it out! But Cody has already said he won’t go for the kill. Will he come to regret that after the bell rings? Or will the Enforcer make sure things stay civil?

Cody and QT shake hands before the bell, and everyone rallies up already. The two circle, tie up with knuckle locks, and then break. They go again, tie up with collar ‘n’ elbow, and they go around ropes and into a corner. Cody turns things around but QT powers up, and the two break again. QT and Cody go again, QT shoots in to get a leg but Cody trips him up. Cody waits, and even joins in on the claps because as he said, he wasn’t going to go for the kill. QT looks a bit annoyed by that, but he and Cody circle again. They tie up, Cody wrenches to a headlock but QT powers out, only for Cody to run him over.

Things speed up, QT drops then they crisscross! QT hurdles, goes to hip toss but Cody arm-drags him around! Cody arm-drags again to get the armlock and wristlock! QT endures, fights up, Cody wrenches but QT wrangles him down, maybe with a little hair pull. Arn reprimands but Cody kips up to wrench and wring QT out! Cody shows stomp but reconsiders as he’s again holding back on purpose. QT gets a ropebreak, and Cody lets off clean. Fans and the Nightmare team cheer, but QT is annoyed again. QT SHOVES Cody! Cody kicks low, drops down for the Rhodes Uppercut, and then runs, into a dropkick! QT finally gets a shot in and Dustin is there to coach his brother.

QT drags Cody up, wrenches to ram shoulders, and is clearly targeting it because of the tape. QT throws haymakers into the shoulder as AEW goes picture in picture.

QT wrenches the arm, grinds down on the shoulder, and Cody fights up. Cody goes around, whips QT to trip him and cover, ONE! QT sweeps and covers, ONE as Cody just manages a Matrix style escape. QT wrenches, WRINGS Cody out, and then paces as Cody gets up. Cody checks the arm, QT is after him with a hammerlock, and RAMS him into buckles! QT pushes Cody around and this is moving away from just an exhibition of friends. QT wrenches, grinds the arm and CLUBS it, to then RAM it! QT whips Cody hard into the corner, but Cody ROCKS QT! Cody is upping things to match QT, but QT wrenches to hammerlock and grind the arm.

The Nightmare Factory rallies, Cody rolls but QT drops a leg on the arm! QT looms over Cody, brings him up, but Cody pushes him away. Cody is in a corner, QT brings him out to CLUB the arm again. Cody ROCKS QT, QT ROCKS him back and wrenches the arm again! QT is keeping Cody on the defensive as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Cody scoops QT for a POWERSLAM! Cody takes off the weight belt, tosses it and gets the leg, but he did promise not to put on the Figure Four, even if he got the opening. Cody lets it go, and QT is just angrier about that! QT swings on Cody, but Cody spins him around to the dragon sleeper, but again Cody’s promise comes in. Cody throws QT down because he refuses to hit Cross Rhodes, despite obviously having it set up. Cody not taking QT seriously is just pushing him closer to the edge, so to speak, and he SLAPS Cody!! Then runs, dodges Cody’s clotheslines, and leaps but flops as Cody ducks! QT crashes and burns out of the ring!

QT gets up in a huff and walks around. The Nightmare Factory gives him space but also an encouraging round of applause, but everyone else taunts QT with “Cody’s Friend! Cody’s Friend!” Cody opens the ropes for QT, Dustin tries to coach QT but QT brushes Dustin off. Dustin gets up on the apron and accepts the ropes being held open, which Cody applauds, but then QT DECKS Arn!?! What did Arn do?! QT runs out to the ramp as the rest of the Nightmare Factory gets in the ring! QT is suddenly full of regret over what he just did, but how is he supposed to continue from here? QT turns away, and Aaron Solow SMACKS Billy Gunn with a chair?!?

And then Anthony Ogogo CLOBBERS Dustin, Nick Comoroto CLOBBERS Austin & Colten Gunn, and Lee Johnson turns around into Ogogo’s HEAVY RIGHT! Solow JAMS Cody with the chair and digs it into him! Comoroto tosses the Gunn Club out while Carlie Bravo, Dean Alexander and the rest are just stunned in disbelief! Comoroto drags Billy up but Billy hits back with haymakers! QT turns around to see what’s happening and Ogogo CLOBBERS Billy! Dustin gets up but Ogogo throws Billy into railing! Solow JAMS Dustin with the chair!

QT sees what his students have done to the others, and then he tells Comoroto to bring Big Shotty Johnson to him. Comoroto does, with a JACKKNIFE POWERBOMB TO THE RAMP!!! QT stands over Johnson, then steps on him. Is that a response to when Johnson forgot to thank QT almost a month ago?! Is this all because of QT’s feelings of being brushed aside?! QT grabs Arn and SLAMS Arn’s arm against railing!! Comoroto dead lifts the entire steel staircase up to the ramp for Solow and Ogogo to set up for QT. Comoroto then hauls a bleeding Dustin over and hands him off. QT stands on the steps, Solow drags Dustin up to him, and they smear Dustin’s blood on their Nightmare Factory shirts!

QT gets Dustin up, for a PILEDRIVER TO THE STEPS!!! The students fetch Cody, and Ogogo undoes his shirt sleeves so he can LEFT HAND BODY SHOT! Cody goes down in a heap, but Solow and Comoroto kick him to the ramp to be on the other side of the steps. QT has a chair, Comoroto puts Cody on the chopping block if you will, and QT has the chair! But Red Velvet rushes out to shield Cody! Velvet tells QT to stop! This was his friend!! Why is he doing this?! QT is of course quiet on that subject. Fans cheer Velvet’s courage, and QT leaves it at this. Will QT and his students look to finish the Rhodes brothers off another time?

 

AEW hears from Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky.

All Ego says “AEW hasn’t lived up to their end of the deal. I give them star power, I’m a world class athlete, and yet here I am…” and it blends into The Closer saying, “Being overlooked, handing opportunity after opportunity to any and everybody but me.” Forcing Ethan and Scorpio to share the spotlight with people who aren’t even on their level. Scorpio is the Face of the Revolution, and he literally grabbed the brass ring. Now, he and Ethan are not waiting, or asking. They will take anything and everything they want, starting Monday. Will these two reach new heights after facing the Sydal Brothers on Elevation?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Tonight, she came to Cody’s rescue against QT’s assault, and Velvet said she had to! Cody’s her tag partner, she has his back. But then JADE CARGILL attacks Velvet! And RAMS Velvet into road cases. “I already told you, I’m THAT BITCH!!” Velvet didn’t have anyone to watch her back, but will she get back at Jade for that?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“I can’t get that sound out of my head, the crunch, the snap when the Good Brothers took out Eddie Kingston’s ankle with a steel chair a couple of weeks ago. That pisses me off. I hate when I’m in a foul mood like this. I’m getting jumped and attacked by goons every two seconds, that pisses me off. The Young Bucks can’t figure out if they want to be in the fight or not. They come out, try to appeal to somebody’s sensibilities instead of swinging chairs. Which side are you on, man? I dunno, but I guess I do still owe y’all one. That pisses me off.”

Moxley still has burns and scars, he’s all itchy and hot, and that’s pissing him off. And now they’re putting Mox in the ring against this Cezar Bononi fella! Moxley told AEW that Bononi looks good at 6’5″, like some Baywatch lifeguard or something. Has a lot of talent, can make AEW a lot of money, but not if Moxley KILLS him on AEW Dynamite! Whatever, all Moxley knows is, someone’s getting dropped on their head, and someone’s getting choked out. Will the Beautiful Bononi, as “Pretty” Peter Avalon calls him, be in for an ugly fight with the Maniac?

Jon Moxley VS Cezar Bononi w/ Ryan Nemeth & JD Drake!

The bell rings, Bononi uses that 6’5″ frame to get not just in Moxley’s face but literally look down on him. Moxley smirks and pie faces Bononi! Bononi forearms Moxley and Moxley likes that! Moxley fires more forearms in return, then runs, and rams Bononi. Bononi stays up to run Moxley over! Bononi puts Mox in a corner, stomps and throws hands, then drives in elbows! Bononi lets off, knees Moxley in and whips him corner to corner! Moxley dodges, rolls, and runs, but blocks a boot to give it a KNEEJAMMER! And then a DRAGON SCREW! Moxley keeps on the leg with a turn, hook, and SNAP LOCK! Bononi writhes while fans cheer!

Moxley gets the leg, steps to a Half Crab with a little extra, but Bononi fights up to boot Moxley away. Moxley watches Bononi flounder, and he KICKS Bononi in the chest! And again! And again! Bononi eggs Moxley on, Moxley runs but Nemeth takes a swipe! Bononi CLOBBERS Moxley! Then manages to suplex Moxley up and over! Cover, TWO! Bononi looms over Moxley as fans boo and AEW goes picture in picture.

Bononi soaks up the heat, talks some trash to fans, and then drags Moxley up to throw him out. Bononi has the ref check his leg, so that JD can come around and CLOBBER Moxley! Scrap Metal puts Moxley in quick and Bononi stomps away! Cover, TWO! Moxley isn’t that easy, but Bononi stalks him to ropes. Bononi chokes Moxley against ropes, lets off as the ref counts, and comes back to knee Moxley low and hard! Bononi drags Moxley up to CLUB him down, pushes him around, and talks trash., Moxley JABS Bononi, Bononi DECKS Moxley! And then DECKS him again! Moxley hits back, Bononi ROCKS him! Moxley flops around but Bononi kicks him out.

Bononi goes out to soak up more heat, then he drags Moxley up to ROCK him again. Moxley staggers, Bononi storms over but into a kick! Moxley fires off kicks, Bononi knees low again! Bononi CLUBS Moxley, puts him in the ring, then covers, TWO! Bononi hurries after Moxley with a chinlock and squeezes tight! Moxley endures, fans rally up, but Bononi leans on Moxley. Bononi jams his knee in as he adds onto the chinlock, and then does it again and again! Moxley still endures as AEW returns to single picture. Fans rally up, Moxley fights but Bononi knees low again. Bononi whips and clotheslines Moxley in the corner! Bononi whips the other way for another clothesline!

Bononi drags Moxley up, but Moxley throws a BIG forearm! Bononi knees low, whips again, but runs only to miss in the corner! The knee hitting buckle makes it really sore, but Bononi gets Moxley in a waistlock. Moxley kicks the dead lift off, slips out the back and waistlocks in return. Bononi elbows out hard, throws forearms, then whips. Moxley reverses and ROCKS Bononi, then ROLLING ELBOWS! Moxley runs and LARIATS but Bononi stays up!? Moxley SLAPS Bononi, Bononi runs but Moxley gets around to REBOUND GERMAN! Bononi staggers to a corner, Moxley runs corner to corner to clothesline! Moxley hoists Bononi up top, climbs up, and hits the SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO!

ARMBAR!! Bononi clasps hands, JD distracts the ref, and Nemeth gets in! Moxley lets Bononi go and stares the Hollywood Hunk down. Nemeth swings, misses, and Moxley kicks him for a PARADIGM SHIFT! Bononi gets up to CLOBBER Moxley! JD goes help Nemeth, Bononi pump handles and lifts Moxley, but Moxley slips around to the REAR NAKED SLEEPER! Bononi is red already! He drops down, he is OUT! Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission

Bononi may still be a beautiful beefcake, but The Maniac loves it better when it’s rugged and brutal. Will Moxley be able to bring it back around and go after the Best Bout Machine one more time?

 

AEW hears from Team Taz.

Taz himself says, “This is a message from Team Taz to all of you. Hey listen, like I said last week, everything is fine and dandy in Team Taz. There are some conspiracy theorists-” Ricky Starks speaks up and says he can take it from here. Starks just wants to let everyone know that he had a great time on Dark with them in their Six Man Tag victory. It felt like the “old Team Taz” was back. But, while things have happened in the past and Starks can forgive that, he wants to hear what Brian Cage thinks about it. Oh, he wants to hear what Cage thinks? That’s a first, because Cage was thinking that maybe if Starks tagged him in sooner, they would’ve won sooner.

Taz wants his guys to settle down, just sit back and chill. Everything’s good in the team. Team Taz is doing great, and NOBODY can stop the Path of Rage. Will the Absolute and the Machine have something to say about that?

 

AEW checks in with The Pinnacle.

MJF cannot be any happier to see the cameras. Right now, you will see what it’s like to live, Pinnacle style. MJF mentioned his gift to the group last week, and he cannot be more elated to introduce their new personal stylist! If you thought they were living beautiful before, just look at these options! And that’s not all, guys! They’ll all love this. This room they took from The Inner Circle “is a big ol’ fat dump.” So MJF got them an interior decorator and they can just get rid of the gross stench of the mixed bathroom. HOLY CRAP, the Inner Circle is in there?! Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Santana & Ortiz are all glaring at MJF. MJF closes the door and it’s time to go! But Hager’s at the door!!

Hager DECKS MJF, the rest of the Inner Circle flood the room, and the Pinnacle is tasting their own medicine! MJF and Y2J brawl while the rest of the team members spill into the hall! FTR brawls with PNP, Hager of course goes for Wardlow, and Sammy tangles with Spears! They’re right by Tony Khan’s office as Sammy RAMS Spears into a wall, then torture racks for the GO TO HOSPITAL, that sends Spears into a door! Sammy then SLAMS the door shut on the Chair Man!! Hager and Wardlow brawl into the trainer’s room, and Hager URENAGES Wardlow through a massage table! That’s not a happy ending.

As for PNP and FTR, they are brawling in the backstage outdoor lounge area, Tully just trying to steer clear of wild shots. Santana ROCKS Cash Wheeler and Ortiz POUNCES Cash into the ice tub! Cash cools off while Ortiz chokes Tully, and Santana shouts, “It’s YOUR turn!” He has a director’s chair- Wait, why is one of these by the ice tub? Dax ducks and the chair SMACKS a pole and busts apart!! Dax is already bleeding from who knows what in between all the chaos, but Santana decides to use the jagged piece to JAM him in the forehead!! And back to Jericho and MJF, they’re still in the private room! Jericho SMACKS MJF off the doorframe as they go into the bathroom!

Jericho drags MJF over to the toilet, MJF fights but can’t stop the SWIRLY!! MJF is sputtering as Jericho brings him around. “The worst is yet to come.” Jericho SMASHES MJF through the Pepsi brand mini-fridge’s glass door!! Then he sips a Little Bit o’ the Bubbly before pouring the rest out on MJF. The Inner Circle regroups and Jericho says, “This is our dressing room, BITCH.” They haul MJF out and leave him in the hall. They rip down the Pinnacle’s sign and stick theirs back on! Will the Inner Circle be THE dominant faction in AEW once and for all?

 

Backstage interview with The Young Bucks.

Alex Marvez asks Matt & Nick Jackson about their tough loss alongside Brandon Cutler against The Lucha Brothers and Laredo Kid, and the big development after the match. What’s going on with the Bucks and Kenny Omega? Matt doesn’t feel like airing more dirty laundry on TV. Move on to- Don Callis walks over and asks them about not wanting to talk about it. Callis tells Nick to “go be a rockstar” while the adults talk. Nick is fine with that, he leaves. Callis tells Marvez to leave so he and Matt can talk “family business.” Callis tells Matt they need to talk, and asks to hear him out. He has something to say man to man: Callis loves Omega, he is family to Callis.

Callis thought the Bucks loved Omega like that, too, talking about how they’re best friends. But what they did last week broke Omega’s heart. Like Omega said, he chose this place. Omega wasn’t choosing AEW over his life in Japan or even more money and fame elsewhere. He chose the Bucks! He made a choice based on family. But what did the Bucks do? They chose to leave Omega bleeding in the ring like some animal! They could’ve helped him, but chose not to, just like with their dad. “Are you so dead inside that you don’t feel anything for the people who loved you?” Callis doesn’t care about how they feel about him, but what about Omega? What is wrong with them? What has happened to them?

No answer, right? Just gonna go count the money. Callis has been trying but doesn’t know how to reach Matt, because he is so cold and dead inside! Then Callis SLAPS Matt!! Matt grabs Callis by the neck! Callis wants mercy, Matt lets him go, and then Callis says, “Really? That’s it, eh? That’s all? Is there anything inside you at all?” Matt’s so pathetic, he makes Callis sick. Will the Bucks show what lies below the surface soon enough? Will Callis regret forcing it out of them when it happens?

 

Six Man Tag: Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers w/ Don Callis VS The Lucha Brothers & Laredo Kid!

Death Triangle wants the AEW World Tag Team Championships, and while they’re at it, they’ll take THE AEW World Championship, too! Penta El Zero M wants the Cleaner to understand that since he had to cheat to win the title, his luck is running out. Last week, los tres luchadores destroyed the Dungeon Master and Young Bucks, and now they’ll take everything with #CeroMiedo! Will it be so easy when they’re up against The Biz Cliz tonight?

But before trios sort out, Laredo builds speed and Penta gives him a boost to FLY and take out the Biz Cliz at the ramp! Fenix perches up top, the Biz Cliz get back up to get a TIGHTROPE MOONSAULT! Penta hurries out to throw Omega in while Callis nonchalantly goes to commentary, and the bell rings! Penta SUPERKICKS Omega, Lareda SUPERKICKS Omega, and Fenix slingshots in to SUPERKICK Omega! They go after his jaw that they hit with the mic, and then “Uno! Dos! Tres!” DOUBLE SUPERKICKS for the Good Brothers to keep them down and out! Laredo kicks but Omega blocks. Omega spins, but misses, to get TRIPLE SUPERKICKS! Laredo covers, Karl Anderson breaks it!

The Lucha Bros much the Machine Gun, throw him out, and then fans fire up as Laredo goes out to the apron. The Lucha Brothers build speed, they DOUBLE TOPE CONJILO while Laredo MOONSAULTS!

Laredo goes up to a bottom rope moonsault! And then middle rope moonsault! Cover, TWO!! Omega narrowly survives and Laredo is surprised. Laredo CHOPS Omega, wrenches and whips but Omega blocks!

Laredo knees low, Omega reverses the whip to fireman’s carry, but Laredo fights free. Omega elbows back, then runs to INVERTED BULLDOG! Tag to Luke Gallows, and #BigLG drags Laredo up. Laredo fires off body shots and a shoulder, but runs into a cheap shot! Anderson gets away and Gallows YAKUZA KICKS Laredo down! Fans boo but Gallows soaks up the heat as he drags Laredo up. Gallows pushes Laredo to the corner, fires off body shots, then hauls him up for a BIG uppercut! Gallows smirks at the Lucha Bros, then drags Laredo up to whip him into the corner. Gallows uses a hip attack, then tags in Anderson. Anderson scoops Laredo for a backbreaker! Cover, TWO!

Anderson claws at Laredo’s mask, throws him down, then tags in Omega. Omega CLUBS Laredo’s arm, then stomps him down. Omega runs to drop an elbow, covers and TWO! Omega drags Laredo up, brings him around and bumps him off Good Brother boots! Tag to Gallows, and he looms over Laredo. He brings Laredo up, whips to ropes and BOOTS him down! Gallows runs to drop an elbow! And another as AEW goes picture in picture!

Another elbow, then Gallows covers, TWO! Laredo lives but Gallows drags him up to drive in more elbows. Gallows clamps on a thrashing chinlock, but fans rally up as Laredo endures. Laredo is fading but he gets his second wind fast. Laredo jawbreakers free, but Gallows headbutts him in the back! Gallows drags Laredo up for more headbutts, then brings him around to tag in Anderson. The Good Brothers mug Laredo, Anderson stomps Laredo down then drags him over. Tag to Omega, he hops up and drops more ax handles. Omega flexes while standing on Laredo for a cover, TWO! Omega kicks Laredo around, just toying with him before hammering and stomping him harder!

Omega bumps Laredo off buckles, tags Gallows, and they drag Laredo up to mug him more. Omega slaps Laredo before Gallows DECKS him! Gallows DECKS Laredo again, suplexes him high and hard, then drops a BIG leg, brother! Cover, TWO! Gallows hammers Laredo, drags him up and AEW returns to single picture. Gallows scoops and holds Laredo up with one arm, before he SLAMS him down! Tag to Omega but Anderson blasts the corner! Gallows is up top, he becomes a backpack for Omega, and Omega shows how strong he is as he carries Gallows over, and then Anderson hops on for a BIZ CLIZ COMPACTOR! Cover on Laredo, TWO!!

Omega is furious and he gets in the ref’s face about it. Tag to Gallows, and he drops a knee on Laredo’s back. Cover, TWO! Gallows wraps on a chinlock and grinds Laredo down.

Laredo fires off on Omega with haymakers but Omega ROCKS him! Laredo shoves, kicks and puts Omega in a corner to SUPER FOREARM! Laredo pushes Omega down, goes out and springboards in, into a POWERBOMB! Omega sits Laredo up for a V-TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO?!? Laredo survives and Omega is furious!

And then, Electric Chair, ONE WINGED ANGEL!!! Cover, Biz Cliz win!!

Winners: Kenny Omega & The Good Brothers, by pinfall

No more near falls or near kick-outs for Laredo Kid, the Best Bout Machine puts him away definitively! But here comes Moxley! The Maniac doesn’t give up, but he’s outnumbered right now. Wait, wait, here come the Bucks?! They stand beside Moxley, but whose side are they on? They’re on MOXLEY’s and they all rush the Biz Cliz! Callis gets Omega and the Good Brothers away, but will they have no choice but to face Mox and the Jackson brothers?

 

Britt Baker speaks.

She tries calling Tony but can’t reach him. Schiavone, that is. Probably “sTuCk At ThE dEsK~.” Rebel can just do his job for him. Rebel gets the mic and introduces Britt and has her tell us all about Dark: Elevation. Elevation is where we will see AEW stars like Britt every Monday night on YouTube elevating stars of the future. Britt couldn’t help but notice the rundown that Thunder Rosa was on the list. That’s wonderful, because Elevation is an excellent platform for Rosa to get her wins up. It is a shame that Rosa’s biggest win ever doesn’t even count because it was UNSANCTIONED! But that’s okay, because “The Legendary” Britt will put AEW on the mat. Signed Yours Truly, DMD.

 

Hikaru Shida & Tay Conti w/ The Dark Order VS Nyla Rose & The Bunny w/ Vickie Guerrero & the Hardy Family Office!

Some rare combinations are taking each other on to settle some scores! The Full Metal Warrior and the Brazilian Blackbelt got a great win together on Elevation, but that wasn’t against a team like the vicious Allie and Native Beast! Will the combined intellect, experience and all around nastiness of the Vicious Vixens and Hardy Family Office be a big time money maker against the AEW Women’s World Champion and (current) #1 contender?

Of course, to even the odds of Vickie, Hardy, Private Party, The Butcher & The Blade all ringside, Tay brings the Dark Order! The teams sort out, but Nyla and Bunny rush Shida and Tay! The bell rings, the brawl is on, Nyla throws Shida away then pushes Bunny aside to get at Tay! Bunny sputters back to the corner, Shida and Tay regroup, only for Nyla to run them both over! Shida gets up and fires off on Nyla, but Nyla scoops and SLAMS, to drop a leg, brother! Cover, ONE!! Nyla is after Shida with haymakers, tags in Bunny, and Bunny skips around to then stomp Shida! Bunny hammers away, gets in Shida’s face, but Shida grabs hair!

Shida whips Bunny over into Tay’s boots! Tay then boosts Bunny into Shida’s judo hip toss! Shida is after the FUJIWARA now! Bunny reaches, gets the ropebreak, but Shida just hammers her in the head! Shida hops out to drag Bunny to the apron and CLUB her on the back! Shida glares at Nyla as she gets space to then KNEE Bunny into the ring! Shida glares at Hardy now, too, but Nyla CLOBBERS her from behind! The Dark Order keeps Nyla and Hardy from doing any worse, but Nyla puts Shida in for Bunny. Bunny covers, TWO! Bunny stomps Shida while AEW goes picture in picture!

Bunny bumps Shida off buckles, tags Nyla, and they mug Shida in the corner! Nyla RAMS her shoulder in, and again, then again! The ref counts, Nyla lets off, then she snapmares Shida to KICK her in the back! Shida hits back but Nyla CLUBS her! Nyla drags Shida up, turns her and hits a neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! Vickie is upset, she drags Shida up to scoop and BACKBREAKER! Nyla bends Shida back in the backbreaker rack across her knee! Shida endures, pulls hair but Nyla clubs her down. Nyla keeps on the backbreaker rack but Shida slips out. Nyla bumps Shida off buckles, tags Bunny, and they mug Shida more. Nyla runs corner to corner to CANNONBALL! Bunny gets in to SLIDING D!

Bunny laughs, Private Party applauds, and Bunny covers, TWO! Bunny runs to shove Tay, Tay gets in but that’s all distraction tactic so Bunny and Beast can stomp Shida at the ropes while the HFO talk trash! Bunny and Nyla let off, Tay is mad, but Bunny feeds Shida to Nyla’s boot. Nyla tags in, drags Shida up and CLUBS her down again. Nyla reels Shida in but Shida resists the lift and fires off haymakers! Shida clubs away on Nyla’s head, then runs, but Bunny grabs hair! The ref reprimands but the damage is done and AEW returns to single picture. Nyla tags Bunny in, they mug Shida more, but Shida elbows Bunny away and sends Nyla into buckles!

Shida drags Bunny around to snap suplex her onto Nyla! Hot tag to Tay! Tay dodges then drop sayanagis Bunny, and again, and again! Tay DECKS Nyla, drags Bunny up and fires off fists! She goes corner to corner to KNEE Bunny, then goes side to side to BOOT WASH! Fans fire up with Tay as she goes up and out and aims, but Bunny ducks one, only to get the other PENALTY KICK! Tay drags Bunny up and gives her the SWINGING BACKBREAKER! Hardy seethes but Tay dares him to do something. Tay drags Bunny up, and Alan Angels hits Big Money Matt! Tay gets Bunny in before the Dark Order brawls with the HFO!

Tay goes up top, Bunny gets under he leap and comes back, only to run into the Gory Especial! Tay swings Bunny for the TAY K O!! Cover, Nyla breaks it in time! Shida uses Tay to springboard and TAMASHI Nyla out of the ring! Shida then climbs up, there’s a cluster forming and she LEAPS, only to be caught! So Tay goes up and LEAPS to bowl everyone over!! Tay fires up as she gets up but Bunny has Shida’s kendo stick! Tay gets in, Vickie distracts the ref, Bunny SMACKS Tay!! DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE!! Cover, Bunny & Nyla win!!

Winners: Bunny Allie & Nyla Rose, by pinfall

Hardy rallies his forces as they and the Vicious Vixens get to cash in big time! Shida and Tay are both still furious, will they make sure Big Money Matt and the venomous Vickie pay dearly?

 

AEW sets up another big Dynamite for next week!

After the confrontation tonight, the Biz Cliz take on Moxley & The Young Bucks in a Six Man Tag! And then to settle what we just saw before our eyes, Tay Conti will take Bunny on 1v1, with a slightly more limited amount of ringside reinforcements. And Darby Allin continues to be a fighting TNT Champion as he takes on the Blue Collar Badass, JD Drake! Plus, after the epic return of the Inner Circle, we will finally hear from Chris Jericho and his team! Then, in AEW’s own battle of kaiju, it will be Jurassic Express VS Bear Country, #OneWillFall!

 

Jurassic Express speaks.

“Hey, Bear Country, you big stupid animals.” Luchasaurus corrects Jungle Boy there, Boulder & Bronson are stupid mammals. Right, sorry. But this is the second time those guys have thrown Marko Stunt around, and JB has a better idea. They should pick on guys their own size! And in honor of the new Godzilla movie- VS Kong? Yes, Godzilla VS Kong. They will have a battle to prove who’s on top of the food chain. Stunt, what’s going on? What is that? Is that a Kong tattoo?! Dude, they’re supposed to be Team Dinosaurs! Luchasaurus storms off, Stunt says he got it so he’ll remember to “beat dat ass.” Stunt hurries after, but will they represent for the reptiles and prove they can be cold blooded?

 

Arcade Anarchy: Chuck Taylor & Orange Cassidy VS Miro & Kip Sabian w/ Penelope Ford!

For the first time anywhere in all of pro-wrestling, this will be a four player melee tag match, with arcade cabinets, arcade prizes and NO HOLDS BARRED! The only way to win is by pinfall or submission, but feel free to rack up as many points as prizes beforehand! Will the Kentucky Gentleman & Freshly Squeezed make sure it’s game over for Team SuperBest? Or is the level gap just too big between them?

AEW returns once more, and for the first time on Dynamite, Chuck & Cassidy enter to Where’s My Mind by The Pixies. The bell rings and the brawl is on! Miro clubs Cassidy then helps Kip against Chuck. Miro stomps Chuck, Kip fires off on Cassidy and stomps him down! Chuck kicks back while Kip brings Cassidy out of the ring. Miro runs in, Chuck dodges, and Chuck CHOPS! Kip bounces Cassidy off the apron and Miro fires haymakers on Chuck. Miro whips Chuck to ropes and clobbers him to then scoop and FALL AWAY SLAM! Cassidy and Kip brawl towards the games, and Kip bounces Cassidy off Whack-A-Mole! Did he hit a mole?

Miro has Chuck by the arcade cabinets, Cassidy and Kip go around the back, and Cassidy RAMS Kip through the back of the Whack-A-Mole! That was never that good of a game anyway. Wait, Kip is now the mole and Cassidy takes the mallet to WHACK him! And WHACK! Miro runs over to CLOBBER Cassidy! Miro drags Cassidy up, and POSTS him! Then scoops Cassidy to SLAM him! Miro seethes as he looms over Cassidy, and then throws him into the Whack-A-Mole machine! Miro WHACKS Cassidy now! Miro storms around, pulls railing apart and brings it over to be a ramp against more railing. Chuck returns to CLUB Miro! And knee, and hammer, and Cassidy adds on!

The Best Friends bring Miro around but he blocks the double suplex! Miro throws Cassidy away, then brings Chuck around to suplex him into the railing! Miro dares “Charles” to get back up. But he stalks Cassidy first, and he brings Cassidy up and into the ring. Miro gets a chair off the prize wall, goes into the ring, and stands on the chair as Cassidy grabs for it. Miro ROCKS Cassidy over and over and over then grabs the chair. Miro wedges the chair into a corner, grins as he goes back to Cassidy, but Cassidy throws body shots! Cassidy backs Miro down but Miro knees low! Miro brings Cassidy around, but Cassidy blocks the chair bump with all his might!

Cassidy hits low, throws body shots, but Miro RAMS him into the steel!! Cassidy flops out of the ring, Miro grins as he hears the fans chant “MIRO SUCKS! MIRO SUCK!” Miro stalks Cassidy around the way, scares off some of the other wrestlers with “the step,” but Chuck is on top of the Mortal Kombat cabinet! Chuck LEAPS and takes down Miro! Chuck and Cassidy gets Miro up and throw him into railing! And then around to POST him! Cassidy sees Kip getting up and BOOTS him back into the Whack-A-Mole machine! Cassidy gets the trash can lid off the prize wall to SMACK Miro! Chuck gets the kendo stick to SMACK and SMACK, Cassidy adds the trash can lid for MORE SMACKS!

Chuck and Cassidy pinball Miro in the SMACKING! Cassidy tees off, then lets off as Miro is in a daze, to run and CLOBBER him with the lid! Fans are fired up as the Best Friends bring the railing over to RAM Miro down! Then they dump the prize table onto Miro, along with a bunch of other things, AND the Whack-A-Mole machine! Cover, but Kip breaks it in time!! Kip KNEES Chuck, DECKS him, then SHOTGUNS Cassidy into the prize wall! Kip gets Chuck for a HALF ‘N’ HALF to the floor! Kip then runs to SHOTGUN Cassidy through the prize wall!! Kip seethes as he goes to Chuck, but he gets whipped into what’s left of the Whack-A-Mole!

Chuck gets… the teddy bear! He brings it and Kip to the ring, fans chant for the “Teddy Bear! Teddy Bear!” That’s because it has a patch on the back that Chuck peels off, to pour out LEGOs!! If you’ve ever stepped on one without shoes on, you know what’s coming! Kip panics but Chuck brings him around to bump off buckles! Chuck puts Kip up top, climbs up to join him, but Kip resists! Kip fights back and adjusts, but Chuck ROCKS Kip! Kip GAMANGIRIS, Chuck wobbles, Kip gets him for a SIT-OUT BOMB on the LEGOs! Cover, Cassidy breaks it!! Cassidy gets Kip up but Kip throws haymakers! Cassidy gives them back, Kip shoves, Cassidy dodges, tilt-o-whirl DDT onto LEGOs!!

Kip staggers, Cassidy Alabama lifts, BEACH BREAK!! Cover, TWO!?! Kip lives but Cassidy doesn’t let that bother him! ORANGE PUNCH!! Cover, Penelope drags the ref out!! Mrs. Superbad can’t technically get in trouble for that, this is No Holds Barred rules. Cassidy goes out and Penelope LOW BLOWS him! Penelope takes off her belt, aims at Cassidy, but wait! From the claw machine, it’s KRIS STATLANDER!! The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien has returned and BUSTS out of the machine, sending the Plexiglas panel into Penelope’s face! Statlander storms over, Penelope SLAPS her, but that only angers her more!

They run into the ring, Statlander drags Penelope to the apron, for the fisherman MICHINOKU DRIVER through the air hockey table!! Fans are thunderous for “A E DUB!” as spare refs check on Statlander and Penelope in the wreckage. Meanwhile, Miro CLOBBERS Cassidy again! Miro drags Cassidy up to TOSS him across the way! Then he BOOTS Chuck, then he demands a chair! Miro grabs one, brings it around and SMACKS Cassidy on the back! And JAMS Chuck to then SMACK him down, too! And SMACK Cassidy again! Miro scares everyone off so he can attack Cassidy again! And SMACK Chuck again! Miro throws the chair away so he can dribble the Best Friends off another table!

Miro clears the table off, brings it around as Chuck and Cassidy crawl up the ramp. Wait, are those headlights pulling into the parking lot? It’s Mama Baretta’s SUV!! Sue is dropping off Trent!! The Best Friends are truly here now that TRENT is back!! Trent storms down the way, helps Chuck and Cassidy stand, and Miro just salivates now! The Best Friends attack the Best Man 3v1! Miro really is a pinball now! Miro shoves them all away, ROUNDHOUSE for Chuck and BEST KICK for Cassidy! Trent comes back to body check Miro! Miro throws Trent into the stage wall and his rage is boiling over! Though, that’s saying something considering all this…

Miro mockingly waves hi to Sue and he heads over that way. He gets on the SUV, but Trent CLOBBERS Miro! Trent bounces Miro off the windshield, then DECKS him down the way! Trent kicks low, ROCKS Miro again, but Miro rams Trent into railing. Trent sits in a chair, Miro seethes and picks up the (out of order) Mortal Kombat II cabinet! He hoists it up with one arm, and THROWS it, but Trent dodges! Trent throws the chair at Miro’s head! Miro staggers, Trent runs in to SPEAR Miro through the table!! Kip sees what just happened to Miro, but Chuck gets Kip for an OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE through the stage!! Cover, Best Friends win!!

Winners: Best Friends, by pinfall

Trent celebrates with Chuckie T and Cassidy, and they finally HUG!! Statlander joins in as an honorary bestie, for a hug that’s out of this world! Sue gives a Cassidy style thumbs up from the SUV! But now that everyone’s back together again, is this only the beginning for the Best Friends?


My Thoughts:

What an amazing episode! A lot of great action, there was story progression that was definitely more quality over quantity, not trying to cram too much in on one night, and we’re definitely on track for some great stuff come Double or Nothing in May. Christian VS Kaz was a great match and went exactly how it needed to. Christian’s catchphrase is about being the top workhorse, but Kaz was right to criticize him for it. Christian had his struggles in this match, as he should, but he overcame it to win, which was also the right call. I hope Christian has one match every week on Dynamite, letting everyone else have Dark and Elevation. It may not be the “outwork everyone” but it’ll show he’s ready to go every time AEW is on TV.

Darby had a good promo with a good video on Hardy, making me think I was right last week: Darby and Sting are going to be taking on teams with way more than just two people so we can get cool cinematic brawls like we did at Revolution. Hardy is definitely a great choice for their second feud, as he basically brought cinematic matches to wrestling, and certainly to AEW. There is also a really good feud already with the HFO VS Dark Order because of the Hangman angle, and now we’re getting the women’s division involved so that’s great. Shida & Tay VS Nyla & Allie was very good, especially with the “overbooking” ringside. It makes sense for the Heels to win here and extend the feud, and Allie VS Tay next week will be really good, too.

The Exhibition of Cody VS QT went about as expected, in that QT was chippy and bitter, and then he splits off from the Nightmare Family/Factory with Comoroto. I didn’t think they’d be setting a trap like that in the event QT wasn’t winning the match, or that Ogogo or Solow would be part of it. I was hoping for more than a total of four but maybe more Nightmare Factory trainees join up as they get to debut in AEW. Velvet having a quick tie-in with Jade Cargill was also good, we definitely need a big 1v1 for them at some point. The Inner Circle returning was amazing, and we really got a feel for the rest of Daily’s Place. Very curious about the ice tub with the big wraparound couch…

The Six Man Tag was great, but of course it was with who was in it. Of course Biz Cliz wins, they need to stay strong overall. Moxley’s promo was good, his match with Bononi was solid because Bononi and Avalon’s guys got to look good as a unit though they ended up losing. I am also glad to see I correctly saw Moxley teaming with the Bucks, and Callis’ promo with Matt backstage was some great stuff. That Six Man Tag of Biz Cliz VS Mox Bucks is going to be awesome stuff, could go either way. Just not sure if Moxley gets yet another title shot, but at the same time, it just doesn’t feel like it’s time for Hangman to step up or anyone else to really be a contender yet.

Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky had a unique duo promo, I hope those two become a tag team and do some great stuff in an already great tag division. The Arcade Anarchy was proof again that AEW can do these wacky gimmick Street Fights way better than WWE can, and I’m again glad to see Trent came back to help finish this off, it was an even greater surprise to see Statlander go after Penelope. The Best Friends’ true form can finally go after tag titles, Cassidy can do whatever whenever, and Statlander can get red hot again in the Women’s Division, AEW’s got almost too many stars and not enough space. No space puns intended given I was just talking about Statlander.

My Score: 9.6/10

Tony Schiavone and David Crockett are here!

These two reunite in the Greensboro Arena, where so much of Sting’s iconic career took place. David says as we know, tonight is about family. The Young Bucks made this extremely personal when they attacked Sting’s sons, so what was to be a celebration of a great career has become a grudge match. There is purpose and revenge, Sting isn’t leaving until he finishes the job. Great years were spent here, the centerpiece of Jim Crockett Promotions and the NWA. Here on hallowed ground, from 1988 to 2024, Sting finishes his career here, live on PPV! Dial in, because there’ll be nothing else like it!

Is Mark going to burn the House down with his own two hands?

 

Swerve Strickland speaks.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite, The Realest having recovered from Hangman Page getting the jump on him. “I really don’t know what I should be pissed off at more: The fact that Hangman went out there and just ripped my $2,000 Jeff Hamilton exclusive jacket; or the fact that maybe I was just being a little too nice. I don’t really let my guard down too often, and in this business, you pay for it eventually. And it feels like I just paid for it. Swerve hung the Hangman and it was only right for the Hangman to swerve Swerve. You got me. I’ll never take my eyes off you ever again. This Sunday, you can’t get behind me. You gotta look me dead in my eye. I’m not gonna forget this.

“And as far as Joe, hm… I’m taking that championship. Whether I humiliate you on social media or in a promo, it doesn’t matter. I’m doing whatever it takes to walk out the historical figure of AEW, the first African American AEW World Champion. Whose house? Swerve’s House.” Angry yet focused, is Swerve truly the most dangerous man in that Triple Threat?

 

All-Star Scramble Qualifier Triple Threat: Penta El Zero Miedo VS Dante Martin VS Bryan Keith!

So far, it is Chris Jericho, Lance Archer, Will Hobbs, Wardlow, Hook, Brian Cage, and after last night’s Rampage, CMLL’s Magnus. One spot remains, will the eighth man have #CeroMiedo, represent Top Flight, or be looking for his next bounty?

AEW shares more footage from after Dynamite.

AEW Media caught up with Hangman Page backstage, and asked him about the attack on Swerve. Is he really not hurt? Hangman asks back, “Do I look hurt, you dumbass?! I’m fine, I’m in the match, and I’m sorry I took advantage of the trust of the people tonight, but I had to do it! I had to do it! I would rather DIE than have Swerve win the world championship! I would rather DIE than not win it myself! I did what I had to do! He’s hurt! He’s hurt, he’s weakened, he can’t have it, he won’t have it! I won’t let him! I had to do it! I had to do it!” The Cowboy seems to think he had to do what he did, but what will he do in order to finish things at Revolution?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Revolution!

After going back and forth with Julia Hart & Skye Blue, Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale team together against The House of Black for a big Zero Hour tag match! Will the TBS Champion and her sidekick bring down the dynamic duo? Or will the Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power prove The House does NOT always win? Plus, while The Bang Bang Scissor Gang tests out the combination of The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn tonight, they’re ALL going to team together against a rather eclectic six pack. Willie Mack, Private Party, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh are teaming together, but will they be brought down by the AEW Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Champions?

 

Mariah May VS Angelica Risk!

“Timeless” Toni Storm’s superfan and self-proclaimed protege is back in action, looking to keep her win streak going. Will this be the night she impresses the AEW Women’s World Champion? Or is she simply taking a risk?

The bell rings and Risk circles with Mariah. They tie up but Mariah kicks low! Mariah CLUBS Risk, puts her in a corner, and then puts some major stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! The fans cheer, Mariah stalks Risk to ropes and puts her through to pull her against the ropes! The ref reprimands and counts, Mariah lets go at 4. Risk sputters and coughs, but Mariah pulls her against ropes again! Mariah runs side to side to DROPKICK Risk in the back! Mariah winks to the camera and then brings Risk up. Mariah whips Risk to ropes, scoops her, and spins and spins and spins for the SIDEWALK SLAM!

Risk writhes while Mariah soaks up the cheers. Mariah blows a kiss to Nigel McGuiness and he is rather dramatic about it. Mariah smiles and goes back to Risk. Risk throws hands but Mariah CLUBS her down. Mariah puts Risk in a corner, then digs her boot in! The ref counts again, Mariah lets off at 4 and says she just deserves a slap on the wrist. Mariah then drags Risk up, snapmares her and runs, to basement dropkick! Risk flounders and Mariah shrugs. Mariah kicks Risk around, drags her up, but Risk ROCKS her with haymaker after haymaker! Mariah shoves Risk then DECKS her! Mariah runs up to KNEE Risk down!!

Mariah storms around, drags Risk back up and fireman’s carries, to hit MAYDAY! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

Nigel finishes marking out, and here comes Toni Storm! Storm goes right down to the ring and Mariah fangirls over her role model! Storm gets in the ring, but bypasses Mariah to get a mic. “Deonna Purrazzo, I must speak with you right now. Please come to the ring right this instance.” The Virtuosa does make her way out here, and storms right into the ring. Storm stays back and says, “Deonna, please. Hasn’t this gone far enough? Look at us! Look at what we’ve become. Is this really what we trained for? Is this really what we starved for, Deonna? Our friendship, destroyed. A new ta-too, a broken leg, a broken arm. All just to win a match. Is it worth it?” The fans sure think so! Storm isn’t so sure.

So Deonna, Storm says from the bottom of her heart, she loves Deonna. Her ability, her determination, and… that there is only room for one. And as long as Storm shall live and breath, it will never be Deonna! Deonna tells Toni, “I love you, too. I love… that you have your head so far up your own ass, you’re going to lose the one thing that started this entire charade to begin with! And I love, Toni, I love that you have forgotten the most important detail about me. I am the best friend and the worst enemy. I hope you have a bidet. It’s going to be really hard to wipe your ass when I break both of your arms!”

The fans fire up and Storm is unsure how to respond to that. But very well. Goodbye, old friend. Toni brings out lipstick to freshen up her make-up, and she kisses Deonna on the cheek to leave a mark. But Deonna fires forearms! They brawl, Deonna TACKLES Storm, and Mariah runs in to stop it! Mariah TOSSES Deonna away and helps Storm get away. But then Deonna runs up to BOOT Mariah! Deonna reels Mariah in and slashes her throat. This is for Storm! STORM ZERO on Mariah!! Deonna shows Storm that anything Storm can do, Deonna can do better. Will that also apply to being the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn VS The Dark Order!

While it was a bit rocky, Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, so now the other half of the Bang Bang Scissor Gang gives it a go! And that means Platinum Max has a rap! “Bang Bang Scissor Gang, doing our thang!” But then Jay White gets too buddy buddy and it throws Caster off! Fans boo but White apologizes. Caster’s lost his window now, can he get back on the beat in the match? Bowens still says, “Huntsville, Alabamaaa~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The trios sort out and Austin starts against Alex Reynolds. The two circle, feel things out, and tie up. They go around, Reynolds headlocks, but Austin wrenches out to headlock back. Reynolds powers up and out, drops down then swings, but Austin ducks ‘n’ dodges and trips Reynolds up! The fans cheer, Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and then two steps for the HAYMAKER! Tag to Caster, he and Austin double whip Reynolds to ropes. They DOUBLE HIP TOSS and we get a shot of “Juiceboard.” Caster brings Reynolds up but Reynolds RAMS him into Dark Order territory! Uno tags in, the Dark Order mugs Caster, but Caster fires off haymakers on them all!

Caster ROCKS Uno again and again, then dodges to DROPKICK! Reynolds runs up, but into a back drop! Silver runs in but into an atomic drop and RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Caster swaggers, but Uno stands up. Caster scoops to SLAM Uno, then tags in Bowens. Bowens tags Austin and Bowens goes up. Time to SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! The remix works just like the classic! Fans fire up as it’s guns and scissors up! But the flow is off again, and Silver BOOTS Bowens! Silver ELBOWS Austin, dodges Caster, and feed to Reynolds, POP-UP UPPERCUT! Uno runs to BOOT Austin then DDT him! Cover, TWO!

Austin stays in there for the BBSG but Uno stays on him with buckle bumps. The Dark Order isolates Austin as Collision goes picture in picture.

Uno DECKS Austin, mocks him as he crawls for the BBSG corner, then STOMPS the hand! Austin writhes, Uno tags Reynolds, and they get Austin up in an open corner. Uno CHOPS, Reynolds clotheslines, and then Reynolds snapmares to IMPLODER SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Austin hurries to ropes and the fans rally up. Reynolds storms up on Austin, taunts Billy & Colten, then tags in Silver. They double whip Austin to ropes to double drop toehold and DOUBLE BASEMENT DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Silver scowls as he stays between Austin and The Acclaimed. Silver sits Austin up to KICK!

Austin sputters, Silver KICKS him again! Then Silver sucker punches Bowens down! The ref reprimands while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Uno is again taunting Austin to tag his team. Uno then drags Austin up, whips him away, but Austin uses that to BLAST Silver & Reynolds! Uno blocks Austin’s kick but the ref refuses to play along! Uno is upset, but Austin gets a leg and he gives it to the ref! Now the ref is okay with it, and Austin hits the NECKBREAKER! The fans fire up while Austin and Uno are both down! Uno and Austin crawl, their teams reach for them, and Hot tags to Bowens and Reynolds! The Five Tool Player rallies on the Dark Order! ROLLING ELBOW for Uno! ROLLING ELBOW for Reynolds! Then Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK for Silver!

The fans fire up as Reynolds gets the same, plus the FAMOUSER BULLDOG! Bowens shouts, “EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED! BANG BANG!” But then Uno drags Bowens out and POSTS him! Caster CLOBBERS Uno, fires off on him, but Silver DIVES! Down goes Caster, but Billy tells the Meat Man to watch himself. Silver just flexes and says, “I’m freakin’ jacked, baby!” Silver shoves Billy and the ref has to stop the rest of BBSG from going after Silver! But this lets Uno & Reynolds both get Caster up, and Silver runs in! PENDULUM BOMB!! Reynolds covers, AUSTIN BREAKS IT! What a save!

Uno CLUBS Austin, runs up, but Austin gets around the boot! Dragon sleeper, SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Austin says “SUCK IT!” but Silver tags in and CLOBBERS him! BOOT WASH to GERMAN SUPLEX! Silver & Reynolds have Bowens isolated! Silver clotheslines, GAMANGIRIS, and whips, but Bowens reverses! The ROLLING ELBOW from Reynolds hits Silver! Bowens tags Caster, then clinch for THE ARRIVAL! Caster is up top, MIC DROP!! Cover, BBSG wins!

Winners: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn, by pinfall

Jay White slides in to give the boys their belts, and he scissor fingers with Caster. The gang makes it work again, and look ready for Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Will the super group be unstoppable despite the dysfunction?

 

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Speaking of dysfunction, Lexi Nair is with the trio of Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power and their manager, nothing the loss to Skye Blue just on Dynamite. However, they do have the tag team match against Skye & Julia tomorrow night, are they having a different tactic going into it? Stokely wants to “address the elephant in the room” and go with the word of the day, “accountability.” He was watching a lot of The View, he is a Whoopi stan, so hey, he just wants to say sorry. Willow says put apologies aside. No more talking, they need to get on the same page. Tomorrow is not about friendship, it is about Revolution!

Willow warns Julia & Skye, “Stat and I are gonna kick your ass!” The Babe with the Power has flipped the switch from happy to angry, is tomorrow night’s Zero Hour going to be the last time the House of Black gets the better of her and Statlander?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He brings in one of the men who gets a chance at an AEW World Championship opportunity in the All-Star Scramble. It is the one and only… WARDLOW! The Undisputed Kingdom’s War Dog makes his way to the ring and he just takes the mic away. “You know the deal.” Schiavone bows out and Wardlow says, “Looks like I finally got somebody’s attention around here, huh?” Fans sound a bit torn but Wardlow says, “Two years ago, I won the Face o the Revolution Ladder match. One year ago, I choked out your King. This year, FINALLY, I get my shot at the world heavyweight championship, after I beat all the other ‘all-stars’ in the match.”

Fans boo but Wardlow says the real question is: Who’s it gonna be? Wardlow VS Hangman? He’ll slap the Cowboy’s mustache into the third row and send him back into depression! Wardlow VS Swerve? The fans like him, right? It’s Swerve’s House, right? Wardlow will kick the door of that house down and whoop Swerve’s ass from the basement to the attic, because nobody else gets to eat before him! So swerve back into your lane and dance your ass to the back of the line! Swerve’s House only exists in Wardlow’s World! Maybe it’ll be Wardlow VS Joe. The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” but Wardlow says he is so sick hearing these “dumb hillbillies” chant for Joe!

Wardlow says that he hopes it IS Joe! Because everybody knows that Joe is in Wardlow’s spot! And this time, Wardlow will finish the job. Not only is Wardlow going to take his spot, take his title, but beat Joe so badly that Joe will be forced to put on a headset and sit at the announce desk where he belongs! YEAH, Wardlow is him! He’s been him, will always be him! And tomorrow night, Wardlow reminds everyone that he is STILL the Face of the Revolution! Wardlow is the Uncrowned King of AEW, because this is no longer wrestling! This is WAR! But wait! Here comes Chris Jericho!

Wardlow huffs and puffs as The Ocho makes his way out here, mic in his own hand. Jericho asks a question: What exactly is Wardlow going on about? Swerve, Hangman and Joe? They are all great competitors, but Wardlow’s not fighting those three! He’s in the Scramble, and maybe you don’t know Jericho, but he’s not an all-star, he is one of the greatest to ever do this! And if Wardlow thinks he’ll just pass over him and six other men, six of the greatest performers worldwide, here’s some information for you. Jericho is the Ocho because he is an eight-time world champion, and the very-first AEW World Champion!

The fans cheer and Wardlow mockingly claps. Jericho says that makes the score 8-0 in Jericho’s favor cuz Wardlow ain’t won sh*t. The fans cheer that! So before Wardlow disrespects Jericho and says he’ll go right to the top, Jericho will remind Wardlow that it’s been four YEARS since Jericho lost that title to Jon Moxley in one of the greatest matches in AEW history, and Jericho hasn’t had even a chance to get it back, or even sniff it. So tomorrow at Revolution, this isn’t just another match for Jericho, this is a chance for him to get back to where he thinks he can be, to where he knows he can be, and that is the AEW World Championship!

Jericho knows he’s good enough. The question is: Is Wardlow? Wardlow chuckles but Jericho says Wardlow’s complaining about being overlooked and pushed aside. Thousands of people used to chant Wardlow’s name, he had a rocket that was put on upside-down, blah blah blah. Does Wardlow think that maybe it wasn’t any of those things? Maybe the people stopped chanting because Wardlow just wasn’t good enough. Maybe it’s that aren’t as good as you think, “Mike.” Wardlow scowls at Jericho using his first name. But y’know what, Chris? You’re right. Because Wardlow was this close to the top of the mountain that he could smell it.

But after Double or Nothing, Wardlow shows up for work, just to take a step backwards. And then the next week, another step, and another, and another. So yeah, that pisses Wardlow off to the point that he let it eat him away, to where he was taking work home and he let it ruin his personal life. Wardlow lost his best friend to this, and he lost himself! But after sitting at home for three MONTHS with no phone call, Wardlow slowly started to remember who he was. And he did what he have done so many times in his life: pick himself up off the floor, put himself back together, and then came back here to remind ALL OF YOU just who the hell he is!

BECAUSE HE IS WARDLOW! The biggest and baddest SOB to ever step into the ring! And he doesn’t give a DAMN what your name is, how many titles you’ve won, and just like he said last week, Wardlow is done eating the scraps! The fans fire up as Wardlow says if Jericho doesn’t think Wardlow’s good enough, well, Wardlow’s right here. Feel free to come down and show Wardlow so Wardlow can remind Jericho! Oh, if Wardlow wants Jericho to prove something, fine. Jericho will take that rocket off his back and shove it up his ass! Right, Huntsville? But wait! HOBBS CLOBBERS JERICHO! Wardlow chuckles, but Hobbs says watch this!

Hobbs rains down fists on Jericho, then tells Wardlow that HOBBS is the biggest and baddest! Fans boo but Hobbs says they’ve got one more day before this happens! The fans chant for “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” The Scramble is beefy, will it be one of the behemoths that comes out on top?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi is now with the Professor of Pro-Wrestling, and says she is arguably the most experienced woman in the AEW locker room today. And currently, she is undefeated. But we’ve also seen a new side of her. Tell us just what’s going on. Deeb says not only is she undefeated in her return, she is undeniable and unstoppable. She’s putting on clinic after clinic every single week. And to be honest, no one’s really even challenged her in the ring yet. And that makes sense, because she is the Professor, the Woman of 1000 Holds. To be honest, she doesn’t think the competition she’s faced so far knows the difference between a wristlock and wristwatch.

So if you’re listening, if you’re watching, and if you consider yourself one of the best, step into Deeb’s Dojo and test yourself against the most elite wrestler. She’ll be here each and every week showing the world that nobody does what she does in that ring, and why Deeb is The Final Boss. A huge challenge has been issued, will anyone step up?

 

Private Party VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy want to finally be at the top of the AEW Tag Division, but they’ve got to keep up the pace if they wanna reach it. Will they do just that against the Fallen Angel & Zen Assassin? Or will the former ROH World Tag Team Champions show them what it takes to really get there?

The teams sort out and Sydal starts against Zay. They circle and talk trash, Zay blaming Sydal for the loss in the Trios Triple Threat while Sydal says he was carrying Private Party. The two shove, then Sydal arm-drags! Sydal taunts Zay, dodges him, then tilt-o-whirls to RANA! Sydal then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA again! The fans fire up and Sydal runs up again. Tilt-o-whirl ARM-DRAG! Quen runs in, but into an arm-drag! Then Daniels gets in to arm-drag Quen! Zay arm-drags Daniels, but Sydla arm-drags Zay! The teams regroup and the fans cheer but the ref wants everyone to calm down. Quen and Daniels back off, but then Sydal and Zay tag them in.

The fans cheer as Daniels and Quen circle now. Quen is annoyed by how many are cheering for Daniels and not him. Quen and Daniels then tie up, Quen headlocks, but Daniels throws body shots. Daniels powers out, Quen rolls over the dropdown and starts up the “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant. Daniels smirks, runs up, but Quen trips him up! Quen speeds up, steps over Daniels, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Daniels is annoyed but he runs up. Quen bypasses but Daniels steps on him now! Daniels says “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” but then wags his fingers. He does the Curry Man Dance! The fans cheer but Quen runs up, into a hip toss!

Tag to Sydal, he and Daniels mug Quen, then Sydal whips Quen into a corner for the GAMANGIRI! Daniels feeds Quen to the ROUNDHOUSE then adds an STO! Sydal gets the fans fired up for the STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO! Sydal taunts Quen, brings him up, and KCIKS a leg! Tag to Daniels, he and Sydal double wrench Quen to bring him to his knees. Sydal KICKS and Daniels BLINDSIDE LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Quen stays in this and Collision goes picture in picture.

Daniels is annoyed but he brings Quen up to headlock. Quen powers out, drops down, and Zay gets a cheap shot in! Zay gets away from Daniels, and Quen DROPKICKS Daniels down! Daniels ends up on the apron, Zay tags in so he can jump in, springboard and STUNNER Daniels off the apron! Daniels staggers around, Zay distracts the ref so Quen can CLOBBER Daniels! Zay goes out to shine Daniels’ head, then put him in the ring. Zay stomps Daniels, then puts him in a corner. Zay stomps a mudhole now, then tags Quen. Private Party says “STOMPS! STOMPS! STOMPS!” but they stop as the ref counts.

Quen kick steps and rolls back to taunt Sydal, then goes back for Daniels. Quen UPPERCUTS Daniels, puts him in the corner, and digs his boot in. The ref counts, Quen lets off at 4, but Zay CHOKES Daniels behind the ref’s back! Sydal protests but that only lets Zay do more! Zay lets off in time, then tags in. Private Party whip Daniels to atomic drop and ENZIGIRI! Quen then sweeps Daniels’ legs and Zay adds the HIP DROP, into a CAMEL CLUTCH! Quen runs to LEAP FROG STOMP, and then Zay BLASTS Sydal off the apron! Sydal is furious and the ref reprimands Private Party, but they just soak up the heat.

Zay brings Daniels up but Daniels throws body shots and forearms! Daniels runs but Zay LARIATS him down! Zay stays between Daniels and his corner, then he brings Daniels up to snapmare and chinlock. Zay grinds Daniels down, Daniels endures, and Collision returns to single picture. Sydal coaches Daniels as he fights up, and Daniels throws body shots. Zay CLUBS away on Daniels, shines the bald head, then kicks low. But Daniels stops the Twist of Fate! Zay comes back, into a FLATLINER! Both men are down and the fans rally up! Zay and Daniels crawl, hot tags to Quen and Sydal! Sydal DROPKICKS Quen!

Sydal JUMP KICKS Quen, ROUNDHOUSES him, then JUMP KICKS Zay! Sydal KICKS Quen, KICKS Zay, repeat! The fans fire up, Sydal dodges Private Party and DOUBLE RANAS! Then QUESTION MARK KICK for Zay! Quen swings but Sydal gets under to wrench and lift, AIR RAID CRASH! Cover, TWO! Quen is still in this and Sydal grows frustrated. Sydal basement dropkicks Zay into buckles, then he runs corner to corner at Quen. Quen dodges and the splash hits buckles! Zay runs in, but Sydal BOOTS! Sydal runs up but Kassidy ducks, Quen BOOTS Sydal! Quen reels Sydal in, Kassidy goes up, but SWANTON NECKBREAKER COMBO! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up and Quen can’t believe it! Quen calls to Zay, they get Sydal up to mug him. Private Party double whip, Sydal KICKS Quen then HEEL KICKS Zay, and a ROUNDHOUSE to Quen! Tag to Daniels and he JABS away on Private Party. Quen kicks low, Private Party double whip, but Daniels ducks the lariats! Sydal & Daniels LARIAT Private Party! The fans fire up as Sydal goes up and Daniels brings Quen around. Daniels underhooks but Kassidy saves Quen! Quen back drops free! Sydal leaps over Quen to METEORA Zay! Daniels is back up, but Quen dodges to Michael Jackson “HEE HEE~,” only for Daniels to dodge the Pele!

Daniels reels Quen in for ANGEL’S WINGS!! Cover, but wait, who’s storming down the ramp? It’s TRIPLE J! Jeff Jarrett and Sonjay Dutt distract the ref, while Jay Lethal gets in to give Daniels a LETHAL COMBINATION! Lethal drags Quen onto Daneils and now the ref sees the cover, Private Party wins!

Winners: Private Party, by pinfall

Quen & Zay get an assist from their future tag partners in Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Sonjay does his best to dance to the music, but will this dirty half dozen find a way to beat all the Six Man Champions tomorrow night?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Cassandra Golden!

Serena Deeb may be undefeated in her return, but so has La Mera Mera! The former AEW Women’s World Champion wants to get some gold again, will she make it 5-0 in 2024? Or will this Collision be Golden?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally as the two tie up and ago around. Golden shoves Rosa away, but Rosa shrugs that off. Golden runs in but Rosa gets her in a facelock! Rosa throws knees into Golden, but Golden powers up to throw Rosa away! Golden runs up, Rosa dodges the boot to BOOT Golden! Rosa eggs Golden on, then CHOPS her! And LARIATS her!

Rosa pushes Golden out of the corner, climbs up the corner, and she DOUBLE DIVING STOMPS! Golden writhes but Rosa still keeps on her! COBRA CLUTCH STRETCH! Golden taps, Rosa wins!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by submission

That’s a new twist to La Mera Mera’s arsenal! And she says it’s story time! “I’m still here, right? La Mera Mera hasn’t left. I know you wanna push me aside, but I won’t back down. Because it’s my time. And remember, get a little closer, because you’re gonna get burned!” Is nothing and no one going to stop Rosa from taking a title in 2024?

 

8 Man Tag: Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Hook & Daniel Garcia VS Christian Cage, Killswitch/Luchasaurus, Brian Cage & Roderick Strong!

There are many titles on the line this Sunday, and the AEW International Championship and AEW TNT Championships are no exception! Freshly Squeezed will be facing the Savior of the Backbreaker while Captain Charisma will be facing the Dragonslayer, and let’s not forget the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and Machine are both in the All-Star Scramble! Which quirky quartet captures some critical momentum just 24 hours away from Revolution?

The teams sort out and while Garcia is glaring at Christian, Christian of course backs down. Instead, we get Brian Cage and #JustTrent. They tie up, Cage shoves Trent to a corner but Trent dodges the clothesline. Trent CHOPS, Cage runs up but Trent dodges again to headlock. Cage powers up and powers out, then he runs Trent over! “Who betta than Cage, huh!?” Trent scrambles to his feet, talks it over with his corner, and tags in Garcia! Garcia dares Christian to step up but it’s Roddy who tags in instead. Roddy and Garcia circle but Roddy SPITS at Cassidy! Cassidy leaves that alone so Roddy and Garcia tie up.

Roddy and Garcia go around, Roddy wrenches through to wristlock. Garcia rolls, rolls and rolls to get free! The fans cheer as Garcia wags his finger. Garcia and Roddy feel things out, tie up, and Roddy wrenches to wrangle Garcia with another wristlock. Garcia fights up, but Roddy wrenches again. Garcia grabs at Roddy for a clinch, pushes him around and turns him, then slips to a headlock! The fans cheer this technical exchange as Roddy pries at the hold. Roddy pops out the back to headlock and hit the takeover. Garcia headscissors, Roddy moves around, and Roddy turns Garcia over. Roddy then ties the legs up, and he smacks Garcia on the head.

The fans boo but Roddy stares Garcia down. Garcia stands, they tie up, and go around. Garcia puts Roddy in a corner, the ref counts, and Garcia lets off slowly, to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP again! Garcia whips corner to corner, runs up and clotheslines, then brings Roddy in! Garcia lifts but Cage makes the save! So Garcia fires shots on Cage!

Garcia feeds Roddy to Hook’s SAYANAGI! The young studs fist bump and the fans cheer.

The ref wants someone to get in, so Killswitchasaurus and Captain Charisma step up! Cage also joins in, but then Cassidy & Trent back Hook and Garcia up! The fans fire up for the stare down, Collision goes picture in picture.

The ref has everyone cool off, but Christian still swipes at Garcia. Garcia kicks at Christian but this boils back down to just Garcia and Roddy. Roddy tags Cage back in, he circles with Garcia. They tie up, Cage RAMS Garcia into a corner! And again, and again! Cage then CHOPS Garcia while Prince Nana talks trash. Cage soaks up the heat, runs corner to corner, but Garcia BOOTS him! Cage tries again but Garcia dropkicks the legs out! Cage hits buckles, Garcia does his dance! Then Garcia BOOT WASHES Cage halfway out the ring! Garcia drags Cage up, UPPERCUTS him, then whips Cage to ropes. Cage reverses and Christian gets a cheap shot in!

Garcia swings on Christian but Christian scurries away, and then Cage CLOBBERS Garcia! Cage tags Roddy and Roddy drags Garcia up to CHOP him in a corner. And CHOP again! Roddy brings Garcia around, tags in Luchasaurus, and they mug Garcia. Luchasaurus scoops to SNAKE EYES Garcia, then runs to CLOBBER him! Luchasaurus stays between Garcia and his team, then drags Garcia up. Luchasaurus TOSSES Garcia to the corner, fires off body shots and an UPPERCUT, then tags in Christian. Now the Patriarch of AEW wants after Garcia, and he CHOKES Garcia against ropes as Collision goes to break!

Collision returns and Cage has Garcia in an open corner. Cage whips corner to corner, gets the Terminator drums started, then runs in. Cage blocks a boot to ROCK Garcia! Cage then scoops Garcia, but Garcia slips fere to shove him into the corner! Garcia climbs up on Cage and he rains down fists! The fans count along, but Cage shoves Garcia down at 6! Cage then drags Garcia up for the deadlift SUPERPLEX! Cage shouts, “Who betta than Cage?!” Fans boo but Cage tags Roddy. Roddy deadlifts Garcia for a BACKBREAKER! Roddy stomps Garcia, tags Christian, and they stomp Garcia together while fans boo.

Christian keeps Garcia from his team, puts him back int he corner and CHOPS! Tag back to Roddy, he CHOPS Garcia! Roddy CHOPS again, then tags Cage. The stomping resumes, and then Cage drags Garcia up. Cage RAMS Garcia into the corner, RAMS him again, then soaks up the heat. But Garcia fires off hands on the rest! Luchasaurus grabs Garcia by the neck, but Garcia HOTSHOTS the arm! Fans fire up, Cage runs in, but Garcia leaps at him! Cage picks Garcia up to suplex, but Garcia DDT COUNTERS! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! Hot tag to Roddy and he hurries, but hot tag to Trent!

Trent rallies on Roddy as revenge for what The Undisputed Kingdom has been up to! Roddy swings, Trent dodges to METEORA! Christian gets in, but he gets a GERMAN SUPLEX! Trent holds on, GERMAN SUPLEX again! Then the HALF ‘N’ HALF! Fans fire up as Trent dodges Roddy and gives him a TORNADO DDT! Trent builds speed and he DIVES, into Luchasaurus’ hands! APRON CHOKE SLAM! Trent flops back down and Luchasaurus snarls. Roddy and Christian regroup with the team as Luchasaurus puts Trent in. Roddy stomps Trent, then digs his boot in. Trent goes to the apron but Roddy uses that to ROPE GUILLOTINE!

The fans boo and Trent flounders, but Collision again goes picture in picture.

Trent sputters, but Cage stomps him on the apron! The ref is too busy with Trent’s team as they protest so Cage gets away with that. Luchasaurus then CHOPS Trent in a corner! And ROCKS him! And stomps him! Luchasaurus drags Trent up, whips him corner to corner hard, and Trent tumbles up and out to the floor! Luchasaurus roars, Trent sputters, and the ref is busy with Cassidy so Christian gets a cheap shot in! Roddy wants one but the ref is paying attention to them by then. Luchasaurus fetches Trent into the ring, then keeps him from his corner with a chinlock. Luchasaurus CLUBS away on Trent’s chest!

Luchasaurus drags Trent up, tags in Christian, and The Patriarchy mugs Trent. Christian snapmares Trent and then claws at Trents’ face! The ref reprimands, Christian lets off to stare Garcia down, but Garcia almost gets a shot in! Christian taunts Garcia, brings Trent up, but Trent throws a forearm!

The fans fire up while both men are down! Trent and Christian crawl, their teams reach out, hot tag to Roddy, and he CLOBBERS Trent to deny Cassidy!

Does Cassidy stand a chance of retaining the International Championship when he can barely stand on his own two feet? All this and more will be answered tomorrow night at Revolution!


My Thoughts:

A great Collision here, especially as the go-home to Revolution. I like the move of Mark attacking Buddy to “cancel a match,” and then Mark became a one man wrecking crew to really escalate things between him and The House of Black. I’m thinking if Mark doesn’t get allies to help him, then he should have some sort of three match series with The House. Mark will face each member 1v1, from Buddy to Brody to Malakai, and who knows how that goes, but Mark beating Malakai would be a good blowoff that also gets Mark towards a title story for the Summer. And really good promos from Swerve and Hangman to top off things for Revolution, with Hangman having a rather manic and desperate take on being a Face turning Heel. That’s a much more realistic turn in his character rather than the usual “I’m just a bad guy now” kind of stuff.

Really good segment from Wardlow, Jericho and Hobbs. While it’s not really good that Tony Khan books his people into these positions where their characters are always going, “It’s about time I get to do something in this company!” at least Wardlow is making the most of it with how passionate that promo was. And then while Jericho maybe goes one line too long for his part, at least Hobbs just beats Jericho down to make his point. Go-home math probably doesn’t work here, Jericho isn’t suddenly going to win out just because of this. I am still going with Wardlow as first pick, Hobbs as second.

Speaking of the Scramble, great Triple Threat, and a great win for Dante. I did not expect that, I really thought it was gonna be Penta, but Dante is another great high-flyer to get in on a rather bulky field. Great win for Mariah May, though I don’t think her matches have really gone long enough to showcase everything she can do. But it was also a great segue for Storm and Deonna to have their final face to face. Deonna stands tall because she puts the hurt on Mariah, that makes me think Storm retains and we slowly turn the corner to where Mariah gets fed up with Storm not caring about her at all, despite taking all these hits for her.

Great win for Thunder Rosa, and her little mini-promo after was really good, too. Again, feels like a case parallel to Wardlow about being a little annoyed at having to wait for stuff. Rosa did show up during the hype towards Collision’s debut, but then was not on a single Collision for months. Good promo from Deeb, too, and I want to say her saying “Final Boss” is some plug for Mercedes Mone to show up and be “THE Boss,” what with Big Business in Boston happening in a couple weeks. And apparently we’re not getting a TBS Championship or even a contender’s match. However, perhaps Willow & Kris VS Julia & Skye establishes someone as a #1 contender through the rankings to build towards the next PPV.

Really good stuff out of Bang Bang Scissor Gang, including their use of dysfunction within the group. They still win out because sadly, The Dark Order’s resurgence was only on ROH and then they got brought back to AEW just to eat losses. But with this being the second week in a row Caster can’t get a rap out, something is about to fall apart between the BBSG, whether we want it to or not. Meanwhile, Triple J helps Private Party win, maybe Jeff Jarrett wants to try and make a super group of his own. And apparently Lethal is onboard, because last we saw they were still arguing, so maybe Revolution swaps a super group we want for one that doesn’t make sense.

And great 8 Man Tag main event with a lot of stories plugged at once. The Heels winning made sense, and Trent taking the loss while Luchasaurus gets the win also makes sense. The math isn’t really affected by that necessarily, because then the chaotic brawl happens and we get varied results. Cassidy was beat down, so I’d think he beats Roddy. Meanwhile, Garcia threw Christian down before cameras cut away, so I guess that means Christian finds a way to win. Which makes sense, we just saw how Christian has three minions and Garcia only has Daddy Magic watching his back. That is, if Edge doesn’t show up to help Garcia.

Adam Copeland costing Christian the title rather than taking it himself would be good stuff for their feud, which doesn’t even really need the title. Edge VS Christian, The Final Chapter, just needs Luchasaurus to man up and turn on Christian and weaken the Patriarchy.

My Score: 8.8/10
