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. Christian and Kaz circle again, tie up, and Christian waistlocks to a headlock takeover! Kaz fights his way up, powers out, but Christian runs him over and covers, ONE! Kaz shakes his head because it isn’t that easy, but fans chant, “You Still Got It!” “Never Lost It!” Kaz and Christian tie up again, Christian wrenches to a wristlock, and twists it tight.

Christian goes up, reels Kaz in, but Kaz resists the tornado! Kaz pops free, backs off, but then SHOVES Christian to the floor! 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. Christian fights up, throws body shots, but Kaz cranks tighter! Christian is fading!!

But Christian stays awake, Kaz leans on him! Christian gets that second wind to fight up and fight back! Kaz CLUBS away on Christian, then cravat knees for the ROLLING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Kaz keeps his focus as he paces. Christian scrambles to ropes, Kaz drags him away to stomp him down! Kaz talks a little trash as he brings Christian up, to wrench and back suplex! Cover, TWO! Christian survives and crawls to the ropes. Kaz looms over Christian, stands on him and digs his boot in, but the ref counts. Kaz lets off, drags Christian up and around but Christian throws body shots! And uppercuts! Kaz hits back and ROCKS Christian again!

Kaz shrugs as Christian is in a daze again. Kaz drags Christian back up, CLUBS him more, then whips him to a corner hard! Kaz runs in but into boots! Christian ROCKS Kaz, hops up and reels him in, TORNADO DDT!! Christian crawls to a cover, TWO!! Kaz survives and fans are firing up again as both men rise. Kaz whips, Christian hits back!

Kaz flounders, Christian goes up again and leaps, FLYING UPPERCUT! Cover, TWO! Christian keeps his focus as Kaz goes to a corner. Fans say “This is Awesome!” but it’s far from over!

Christian climbs up, rains down rights on Kaz and goes all the way to 15! Christian catches his breath as he paces, but Kaz tackle shim to a jackknife cover, TWO! Sunset flip, TWO! Christian almost had it, but Kaz gets him for a wrench, hammerlock, and crossface! Christian fights off the submission hold, elbows Kaz away, then brings him around to double chicken wing!

Christian aims, leaps, but FLOPS!! Kaz avoids the big splash and gets to his feet, to CROSSFACE CHICKEN WING!

Christian resists the body scissors, Kaz clubs him and wraps him up tight! Christian endures, fans rally and duel, Kaz shouts in his ear! Christian gets a third wind to drag himself and Kaz over, for a ROPEBREAK with a foot! Kaz lets go fast and is frustrated as Christian survives! Christian clings to ropes but Kaz grabs at him.

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 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 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

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed.

Lexy Nair is with Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn. First off, congrats on the recent success of the newest video. Thank you, Lexy. And Bowens is facing Brian Cage in tonight’s main event, how- Daddy Ass has us stop there. Let’s talk about everyone going crazy, running wild. The Embassy turning on Swerve, The Elite abusing their authority. Billy isn’t sure if Lexy has watched older wrestling, but Billy has a thing about authority. So if they wanna get wild, if they wanna go nuts, that is right up their aisle!

Caster says that’s right! He also thanks Lexi for saying those nice things about his song. But that song was about him and Bowens going back to the Tag Division. If you read the lyrics, which are great lyrics, but none of those team decided to wrestle The Acclaimed. Perhaps they’re a little too afraid to wrestle the best team alive. So they took the first match they could find, and that turned out to be Bowens VS Brian Cage 1v1. Sure, Brian is The Machine, but there are a lot of machines that are now antiquated, and we know Brian doesn’t have AI in his brain. In fact, he can’t update his software! It’s about time Bowens takes Brian to the junkyard!

Bowens says that’s right! Platinum Max & Daddy Ass said it themselves, there is a lot of chaos and madness going on in AEW! Bowens tells Brian and his cronies that they decided to side with The Elite, well you’re looking at the foundation of AEW! The best tag team alive, the best homegrown stars, The Acclaimed! That train is gonna roll right through Brian tonight, courtesy of the Scissor King! Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! Say it again, EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed!! The Five Tool Player is fired up, but will he need all those tools to dismantle The Machine?


Rush VS Cody Chhun!

El Toro Blanco is back again, and this time he is looking to reach the top of AEW. Will he stampede through everyone put in his path until he is adored with AEW gold?

The bell rings, the fans rally up with “FOUR C! FOUR C!” Chhun runs up but Rush dodges! Chhun hits buckles, then Rush CLOBBERS him! Chhun sits in the corner checking his jaw, but Rush goes to the far side. “If you mess with the bull…” You get BULL’S HORNS!! Rush drags Chhun to a cover, Rush wins!

Winner: Rush, by pinfall

Rush stands tall, but he doesn’t even care to celebrate, because this was more an inevitability than a victory to him. But then he sees Chhun stirring, and Rush drags him out of the ring! Rush CHOPS Chhun right down! Then he whips Chhun hard into barriers! The ref reprimands but Rush THROWS Chhun around again! Rush fires down fists, the fans boo as Rush DECKS Chhun! Rush won’t stop, he finds his favorite bright green cord! Rush LASHES Chhun, even as more refs rush out here! Rush CHOKES Chhun with the cord!! The refs all shout for him to stop, and Rush does. But he wants everyone to remember: Nothing happens unless HE says so!!

Rush storms off, spits on Chhun, and then grabs a chair! The refs warn him, so Rush simply stands on the chair to soak up the heat. Will nothing and no one stop Rush from rampaging his way to the top?


Lexy Nair is outside the trainer’s room.

She notes that to close Collision, Lance Archer & The Righteous viciously attacked FTR after the match. Bryan Danielson walks out, Lexy asks for a medical update. Well, The Elite put a bounty on Team AEW’s heads, and it seems to have worked. FTR won’t make it to Dynamite next Wednesday. But the Elite also failed, because here’s the thing. The Elite wants to change the world? They don’t even show up on Saturdays! And the failure is that Bryan is still here! So this Wednesday, Bryan will be on Dynamite. The Elite can take whatever shot they want, but they better get it done the first time. Otherwise, they won’t like the consequences.

Bryan heads out, but are The EVPs going to make sure no one makes it to Double or Nothing to oppose them?


Deonna Purrazzo VS Robyn Renegade!

The Virtuosa is still seething over her many run-ins with Thunder Rosa, but it seems their rematch isn’t destined to happen just yet. Will Deonna one-up La Mera Mera by beating Robyn worse than Rosa did?

The bell rings, the two circle, and they knuckle lock. Deonna spins to wrangle Robyn, but Robyn rolls back. Robyn wrenches, wristlocks, but Deonna rolls, rolls and gets free. The fans cheer, Deonna smirks, but Robyn runs up. Robyn waistlocks, Deonna switches, but Robyn switches back. Deonna pries free to switch again, then she trips Robyn up. Deonna runs, Robyn stays low, then Robyn hits a rolling fireman’s carry takeover! Robyn runs up but Deonna ducks the kick to roll her up! TWO, and Robyn staggers up into an arm-drag! Deonna has the armlock, the fans cheer, but Robyn endures.

Robyn fights up, Deonna hits another takeover, and she traps the arm. Deonna makes it a cover, ONE as Robyn gets the shoulder up. Deonna knuckle locks, wrenches, then clamps onto the arm. Robyn fights up to whip free, then runs to sunset flip! Deonna stays up, then slaps the arms away to clamp on an ARMBAR! Robyn fights around, flails, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Deonna lets go at 4, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Deonna stalks Robyn, brings her around and whips, but Robyn holds ropes. Deonna ROCKS Robyn, Robyn still holds ropes! Deonna ROCKS Robyn again, whips, but Robyn reverses.

Deonna pulls on the bad arm, then top wristlocks. Robyn endures as Deonna thrashes the arm, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Deonna wrenches Robyn’s arm. Robyn ROCKS Deonna, but Deonna wrenches again. Robyn fires off a flurry of forearms and the fans fire up! Deonna shoves Robyn but Robyn LARIATS on return! The fans fire up with Robyn, then she wrenches Deonna to reel her in, put her in ropes, and KNEE her! Robyn runs to then STOMP Deonna down! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives and Robyn is frustrated. The fans rally, Robyn drags Deonna up, then fireman’s carries. Deonna slips free, shoves, and BOOTS Robyn down! Deonna slashes her throat and vows to end this! The fans fire up as Deonna drags Robyn up.

Deonna Gotch hooks, but Robyn slips free! Robyn pump handles, but Deonna arm-drags free! Deonna BOOTS the lariat, ARMBAR DDT! FUJIWARA!! Robyn taps, Deonna wins!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by submission

Deonna didn’t even need Venus De Milo, but then she puts that on Robyn anyway!! The ref reprimands, the fans boo, but Deonna makes Robyn suffer in Rosa’s place! But wait, here comes Thunder Rosa!! La Mera Mera rushes the ring, but Deonna runs away! So when does the part about regretting to mess with a Jersey girl come in? Rosa checks Robyn, and Deonna slithers back in! Deonna CLOBBERS Rosa from behind! Oh so that’s the part about Jersey? Rosa gets up, though, and Deonna retreats again. Rosa runs Deonna down and grabs her by the hair! Rosa drags Deonna back to the ring to RAM her into the apron!

The fans fire up as Rosa tells Deonna to fight her now! Rosa puts Deonna in, Deonna rolls out of the ring and runs into the crowd! The fans boo as Deonna flees into the night. When and where will Deonna have to give Rosa this fight?


Scorpio Sky speaks.

“I have done things people dream about. I’ve made money, faced legends, won championship after championship after championship. And you might not wanna hear this, but that was easy. And that doesn’t mean I don’t relate. I understand a normal person put in my position would fail. Because since time began, when people wanted to see a star, they’d look up at the Sky. And all that does is put me in the perfect place to reach down and lift you all up here with me. So to all the fans around the world, I’m coming back. And I’m here for you.” But will this comeback finally be the time Scorpio Sky reaches the top of the mountain?


Backstage interview with Sonjay Dutt.

Lexy Nair says Sonjay asked for this time, what is on his mind? Sonjay says first off, he sure doesn’t need Lexy here so hit the bricks. Skedaddle, peace, see ya. Lexy sighs and leaves, and Sonjay says this is for Bryan Danielson. The Elite have put a price out on Bryan’s head, and Sonjay just got off the phone with them, they have worked out quite the deal. Bryan says he’ll be on Dynamite, and so is Sonjay. But no, Sonjay isn’t the one that’ll take him out once and for all. This Wednesday, it will be The American Dragon VS… The Indian Giant! Yeah, that’s right! The one in a billion, Satnam Singh!

And y’know what? Dragon meat is expensive, so hopefully he goes well with a little chicken masala. This Wednesday, it will be one hell of a cookout! Sonjay laughs to himself, but will Bryan be the one with the last laugh after taking on this giant roadblock?


PROGRAMMING NOTE for Rampage next week!

Yes, Rampage returns to Friday nights next week, BUT at a special time of 6:30 Eastern, 3:30 Pacific! Make sure your DVRs know so you don’t miss this special Double or Nothing weekend edition!


Brian Cage VS Anthony Bowens w/ The Acclaimed!

The Machine turned on Swerve and then got beat by Swerve, crossing him off the list of top contenders. But will he reboot and head for other title opportunities? Or will The Acclaimed prove they can get it done in any division?

As always, Platinum Max has a diss track! “I heard Brian Cage got captain plans. We leave you bleeding so hard, you got menstrual cramps! Damn you are ugly, lookin’ pathetic. You are so small, get off the Ozempic! When did Brian Cage stop lifting weights? Beat him so bad, whip his ass into shape! Run you outta town just like Daim, because in Portland, Everybody Loves The Acclaimed!” Bowens then says, “PORTLAAAAND~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does~! The fans are fired up, but will Cage get his stuff in in response?

The bell rings and the fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” Cage and Bowens circle, tie up, and Cage shoves Bowens away! Cage flexes, fans are torn, and Cage says to scissor that. Bowens has Cage hold on, and then Bowens flexes. The fans cheer for Bowens, and he does scissor that! Cage runs up, Bowens gets around, then CHOPS! And CHOPS! Cage TOSSES Bowens to a corner, takes a swing, but Bowens dodges! Bowens CHOPS and CHOPS, but Cage shoves Bowens away. Cage runs up, Bowens gets under and kicks low. Bowens whips, Cage reverses, but Bowens goes up and over. Bowens hurdles, headlocks, but Cage powers out.

Bowens hurdles, slips around the lariat and DDTS! Cover, ONE!! Cage is tougher than that but the fans fire up behind Bowens. Bowens gets Cage up but Cage SPINEBUSTERS him! Cage says no more scissors! Cage storms up to RAM into Bowens! And RAM in again! And then CHOP! The fans “WOO~!” while Cage stalks Bowens. Cage bumps Bowens off buckles, then says one more time! NOT! Cage trolls the fans, whips Bowens, then runs up to UPPERCUT! LARIAT! SAIDO! Cage asks who betta but the fans are torn. Cage storms over to Bowens, drags him up, and ROCKS him with a forearm. Cage CHOPS, ROCKS Bowens again, then CHOPS again.

The ref counts, Cage whips corner to corner, then runs up. Bowens dodges the splash, blocks the kick, CLUBS the knee then KNEE JAMMERS into a DRAGON SCREW! Cage writhes and flounders to the apron while Bowens catches his breath. Bowens storms up, brings Cage up, but Cage swings! Bowens ducks, feints, then kicks the legs out! Cage hits apron on the way down, and Bowens aims. Bowens slingshots but Cage moves, so Bowens just goes to the apron. But Cage blocks the Penalty Kick to bring Bowens down, POST BOMB!! Cage gloats, then leaves Bowens behind, while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Bowens writhes, Cage goes back out to drag him up, and RAMS him into barriers! Cage brings Bowens around, SMACKS him off the apron, then drags him up again. Cage whips Bowens hard into steel steps! Bowens falls over in a heap, Cage flexes, then Cage refreshes the ring count. Cage drags Bowens up but Bowens pushes him away. Cage BOOTS Bowens down, then brings him up for an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Cage gloats some more, steps into the ring, and storms up on Bowens. Bowens kicks low, throws hands, but Cage JUMP KNEES! Cage digs his boots into Bowens at the ropes, lets off, and Bowens sputters.

Cage CHOKES Bowens again, the ref counts, and Cage lets off again. Cage drags Bowens up, scoops and uses him for bicep curls! Cage then TOSSES Bowens away! Cage swaggers around, flexes, and covers, TWO! Bowens KICKS Cage from below! And kicks him again! Cage KICKS Bowens, whips him to ropes, then CLOBBERS Bowens! Cage clamps onto Bowens with a chinlock and grinds him down! Bowens endures, Cage grinds him into the mat, but the fans rally up. Bowens fights up to his feet, throws body shots, but Cage KNEES him away. Cage wags his finger, gloats a bit more, then runs corner to corner to forearm smash!

Cage soaks up more cheers and jeers as Rampage returns to single picture. Cage run sin, but Bowens BOOTS him! And BOOTS again! Bowens goes up, leaps, but Cage catches him! Cage suplexes, but Bowens cradle counters! TWO!! Cage escapes but Bowens ducks the discus! Bowens hobbles but he still ROCKS Cage, throws more hands, but Cage SOBATS! KICKS! Cage runs, Bowens follows. Cage dodges, Bowens redirects and spins Cage for Rock, Paper, Scissors, SUPERKICK! The fans fire up with Bowens! Bowens mule kicks, front kicks, runs and FAMOUSERS! Cover, TWO!! Cage survives and Bowens can’t believe it!

The fans rally up and Bowens rises. Bowens waits on Cage, runs up to clinch, but Cage fires elbows! Cage waistlocks, full nelsons and SLAMS Bowens down! Cover, TWO! Cage is frustrated, but he wants Bowens to get up. Cage runs up, Bowens moves aside to KICK Cage in the ropes! Then DRAPING APRON DDT!! Both men are down but the fans fire up! Bowens rises, drags Cage up, and fireman’s carries! Cage fights that to POST Bowens! And ENZIGIRI! Bowens flops around the corner, Cage brings him up from inside! DEADLIFT SUPERPLEX!! Cover, TWO!!! Bowens is still in this and Cage is beside himself!

Cage starts up Terminator drums, the fans join in, and he drags Bowens up. Cage pump handles and lifts, but Bowens slips free of the driver! Bowens runs but Cage ducks the kick to roll Bowens up! Bowens rolls through, and he ducks the discus! The SOUTHPAW hits! Cage reels Bowens in, suplexes, DRILL- NO, Bowens slips free to ROLLING ELBOW! And SUPERKICK! Cage falls, Bowens runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Cage survives but the fans fire up! Bowens huffs and puffs and fires back up! Bowens waits on Cage, fireman’s carries, but the bad leg stops him! Cage shoves Bowens at the ref!

Cage runs up, Bowens sends him at the ref! Bowens waistlocks but Cage LOW BLOWS!! The fans boo but Cage reels Bowens in! DRILL CLAW!!! Cover, Cage wins!!

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

Bowens may be an excellent former Tag & Trios Champion, but sadly he isn’t at the level needed as a singles guy. Will The Acclaimed have to regroup and focus on going after The Elite? Will The Machine be granted golden opportunities by said Elite?

My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage to once again follow up Collision, but I’m relieved that next week is going to be a partial return to normal schedule. Because as great as the matches here were, they just felt thrown together to tangentially tell stories. For example, Kyle VS Lee was a great match but Kyle has beef with The House of Black but they didn’t want Kyle getting one over on Buddy or Brody before facing Malakai next Wednesday. Shane Taylor Promotions deserves a touch better than being fed to the bigger stories, but maybe they come around as a trio after Double or Nothing to face like Bang Bang Gang or something.

And even our main event was an example of this. Great promo from Acclaimed, great rap from Caster as usual, but also a good choice for Cage to still win out. Cage has done singles champ stuff, is going to be the singles champ guy in whatever the former Mogul Embassy becomes after this, or even just a singles guy all on his own. Rush of course squashes his opponent tonight but him going after Chhun after was a good touch. At the same time, I kinda wanted the ref to reverse the decision and disqualify Rush after the match, throwing him into a worse rage and beating up on Chhun more. And again, why no La Faccion Ingobernable? Donde esta Dralistico, Preston Vance y Jose?

Good match from Deonna VS Robyn but of course Deonna won. Rosa going after Deonna and Deonna running away was not what I was expecting, it’s rather disappointing, and why not just give us their rematch with escalated stipulations already? Deonna VS Rosa in a Last Woman Standing maybe? Iron Woman Match so that it goes right to half an hour? Something cool like that would really show Tony Khan finally wants to do more with the Women’s Division after promising it like two or three times already.

And very good promos from Bryan and Sonjay Dutt to set up Bryan VS Satnam. I would think Bryan wins, but there’s a good chance Team Triple J goes after him post match anyway. As I just said in the Collision article, Anarchy in the Arena being No Disqualifications of the highest level, we could actually get way more than just the eight men advertised as the roster starts choosing sides, a very Avengers Civil War/Endgame type situation.

My Score: 8.6/10

Will Ospreay VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Aerial Assassin gave Roderick Strong one last warning on Dynamite, but this is about paying back that knockout shot last week! Will “OSPREAY! OSPREAY!” be cashing receipts tonight? Or will it be Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?

But before things get going, here comes The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy, Taven & Bennett walk on out, clearly not leaving things at the face to face on Wednesday. Roddy joins commentary, the bell rings and Ospreay runs up to SHOTGUN Shane! The fans fire up while Shane bails out! Ospreay aims and PLANCHAS! Down goes Shane and the fans fire up with Ospreay!

Shane ROCKS Ospreay, Ospreay goes to a corner, and Shane storms up to HEADBUTT him!

Shane BODY BLOWS Ospreay and Ospreay staggers away. Shane talks Ospreay, ROCKS him again, and Ospreay drops to his knees. Shane drags Ospreay back up, to JAB! JAB! And JABS!

Shane is tough but Ospreay loads up the arm! The fans fire up as Ospreay aims, Ospreay runs in, but into a KNEE! Ospreay swings, Shane bobs ‘n’ weaves, and then HEADBUTTS!

Shane is losing his cool while The Kingdom is losing their minds! Shane tucks Ospreay, lifts, but Ospreay slips free! Ospreay BOOTS, “This is Awesome!” as Ospreay goes up.

Then Ospreay uses the corner to help with the Canadian Rack! STORM BREAKER!! Cover, Ospreay wins!!

Winner: Will Ospreay, by pinfall

The Kingdom is in shock seeing the BIGGEST Stormbreaker ever! Ospreay glares at Roddy as Roddy steps to the apron. But The Kingdom flanks the ring, get in and mug Ospreay! The fans boo as Bennett & Taven beat Ospreay down! They double whip, but Ospreay holds ropes! Ospreay then DUMPS both Taven & Bennett out, BOOTS Roddy off the apron, then FLIES to take out Taven & Bennett! The #BillyGOAT gets away clean, will he be able to take The Kingdom down and bring the International Championship home to The Don Callis Family?


Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley says, “At Double or Nothing in Las Vegas, Konosuke Takeshita-san will try to score himself a shot at the IWGP (World Heavyweight) Championship. He’s been a hell of a blue chipper for quite some time. Now, he’s got a new attitude, some new representation. And he came after me. Me. Trying to put a big ol’ notch in that gun belt. Hey, I get it. I’ve done far worse. What’s my secret? What’s the secret of the BCC? When you stand where I stand in this sport, you get used to being a target. How do we survive? Guys like you, The Callis Family, you’re in it for the gold, you’re in it for the green and chasing fame and fortune, adulation, Instagram, all that.

“BCC, we don’t give a rat’s ass about any of that. We do this because this is who we are. This is our nature. We don’t hunt because we are hungry, we hunt because we are lions. We like it. We never, ever play for money. We play for blood.” Claudio Castagnoli adds that a lot of times, he’s the voice of reason here. Even when no one listens, it’s fine. Things just keep repeating and repeating and he doesn’t like standing here to talk to the camera, because it is the most awful thing to do. What matters is going out there and showing it week after week! And y’know how many people stand back here and tell you how good they are? How great they are?

They have passion! They practice their lines in the mirror! Then they come here, tell you how really, really good they are, and how it’s just been their dream all their lives. And it’s all fake! So fake because they don’t live it one day of their lives. It’s like The Emperor’s New Clothes. Only the BCC can see it. They see through the fake, through the facade. They see through it because while others try to make a name off BCC, that’s a big mistake. You are dealing with the real deal right here! Moxley likes it. Takeshita, you started this game. At Double or Nothing, the BCC finishes it. Will The Maniac tear down The Alpha and send a message to the rest?


BREAKING NEWS for AEW’s “Path to All In!”

The first-ever AEW “Summer Series” is heading to the Arlington ESports Stadium, and will be based there for six whole weeks! Collision on Saturday, July 20th, ROH Death Before Dishonor on Friday, July 26th, Collision on July 27th, Collision on Thursday, August 1st, then Saturday, August 10th AND Saturday, August 17th! Make sure you get your tickets starting in June so you can be part of this inaugural event!


AEW hears from Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey.

It was backstage after Dynamite that The Learning Tree, after getting patched up, told Hook, “Wow, I can tell that I touched a nerve there when you hit me with that microphone and made me bleed my own blood.” But Hook, Jericho isn’t mad. It tells him that Hook is learning what it takes to be a champion again. Hook was the “For The World” Champion, and will be again some day, but it’ll take some time. Hook is still learning. Jericho is glad Hook is in the #JerichoVortex and hit him hard enough to make him bleed. It really hurts, but y’know what? It also makes Jericho proud. Makes him proud to see Hook get a little more serious! This is serious business!

This is what The Learning Tree is here for! To make Hook a better person and a better wrestler, both inside the ring and out. Jericho will need stitches, and will gladly get them. Because it is proof that Hook is learning what The Learning Tree is teaching. So in a roundabout way, thank you, Hook. And good luck in the qualifiers. Wow, that really hurts. Really got him with that mic. Hook is “learning,” but will he be the one teaching Jericho a thing or two?


FTW Contender Series: Hook VS Johnny TV w/ Taya Valkyrie!

The Learning Tree is giving opportunities to those who are worthy, but it will still come down to who is the most deserving. Will the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil prove he’s the only one deserving? Or will Johnny #SendHook to the back of the line?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hook. The two circle, Johnny tests the waters with kicks. The two tie up, Hook headlocks, and Hook wrenches to a hammerlock then headlock. Hook hits a SAYANAGI, and Johnny staggers to his feet. The fans rally as the two circle again. They tie up, Johnny ROCKS Hook! Hook wrenches back to SAYANAGI again! Hook clamps on for a wristlock, but Johnny fights up. The fans duel, Johnny fights up and trips Hook up. Johnny runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO! Hook is tougher than that but Johnny rains down forearms and elbows! The fans duel more as Johnny keeps throwing down shots!

Hook wants an arm but Johnny slips around to cravat. Johnny cranks the neck, Hook endures and fights up. The fans rally and duel, Hook pries at the hold to then power Johnny into a SAIDO! Hook runs up to LARIAT! Johnny staggers back up, Hook clinches and throws knees! Hook TOSSES Johnny across the ring! Johnny gets up in a huff, kicks, but Hook catches him! LEG CAPTURE SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Hook and he storms around. Hook brings Johnny up but Johnny JAWBREAKERS! Johnny ROCKS Hook, Hook ROCKS Johnny! Hook fires more shots, but Johnny kicks low! Hook dodges the lariat, but almost runs into Taya!

The ref reprimands Taya for being on the apron, but Hook turns around into a FLYING CHUCK! Johnny goes to the corner, climbs up, STARSHIP PAIN FLOPS as Hook moves! Hook is mad now, and he clamps on for REDRUM!! Johnny fights but Hook has the hooks in! Johnny TAPS, Hook wins!

Winner: Hook, by submission (advances to the Triple Threat)

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil is now moving on to Dynamite’s Triple Threat #1 Contender’s match! Will he make Jericho regret not just giving him the match?

As Hook heads out, Shibata makes his entrance! The Wrestler is also in this series, and he gives Hook a fist bump as they cross paths. Will Shibata join Hook in that Triple Threat? Or will Azucar make things sweet?

FTW Contender Series: Kastuyori Shibata VS Rocky Romero!

The bell rings, the two shake hands, and the fans cheer. Shibata and Rocky circle, the fans rally up, and the two feel things out. They knuckle lock, Shibata gets around to waistlock, but Rocky switches. Shibata switches, Rocky goes for a leg, but Shibata waistlocks again. Rocky wrenches out to a wristlock but Shibata spins and wrenches back. Rocky rolls but Shibata wrangles him! Shibata double wristlocks, but Rocky powers Shibata to ropes. Shibata still holds onto the wristlock as Rocky tries to whip. The fans rally, Rocky throws knees and powers out this time. Shibata stops himself to stomp Rocky on the back!

Shibata gets a leg, steps through, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~!” as Rocky endures. Shibata puts on pressure, but Rocky crawls for ropes! ROPEBREAK, and Shibata lets go quickly. Shibata stomps Rocky, CLUBS him, then CLUBS him again. Shibata runs, but Rocky catches him into an IRON OCTOPUS! The fans cheer while Shibata endures! Shibata fights up, pops free and throws Rocky down! And it’s back to the FIGURE FOUR! Rocky endures again while fans “WOO~!” Shibata puts on the pressure, Rocky pries at the main leg, but Shibata pulls on Rocky’s legs. They roll, roll, and end up in the ROPEBREAK!

The ref counts, the leglock is undone, and Shibata brings Rocky up to bump him off buckles. Shibata fires forearms, UPPERCUTS, then UPPERCUTS again. Shibata goes corner to corner, but into a BOOT! Rocky kicks again, Shibata bocks, so Rocky reel shim in for an UPPERCUT! Rocky goes up and jumps, TORNADO DDT! Both men are down and the fans fire up while Collision goes picture in picture.

Rocky stands and he stomps Shibata. Shibata sits up, Rocky KICKS him in the back. Rocky wrenches an arm, YANKS it, then wrenches for an ELBOW BREAKER! Rocky KICKS Shibata in the bad arm, then brings Shibata around. Rocky turns Shibata over, traps the right arm and he pulls on the bad one, SACRIFICE! Shibata writhes and clutches the elbow.

Rocky CHOPS, Shibata drops to his knees, but Rocky wrenches again. ELBOW BREAKER! Rocky KICKS the bad arm again! And again!

Collision returns, Rocky KICKS Shibata in the arm! Shibata eggs Rocky on and the fans rally up. Rocky KICKS again, but Shibata stands! Rocky KICKS, and KICKS, but Shibata just steps into them! Shibata DECKS Rocky and the fans fire up! Rocky is dazed but Shibata brings him up. Shibata CHOPS and the fans “WOO~!” Shibata CHOPS again, and CHOPS again! And CHOPS and UPPERCUTS and runs, but Rocky dumps him out! Shibata stays on the apron, and gets a SLEEPER! The ref counts, Rocky wrenches free to HOTSHOT the arm! Rocky reels Shibata in through ropes, to KICK, KICK and he goes up! MISSILE DROPKICK!

The fans fire up, Rocky drags Shibata to a cover, TWO! Rocky frowns but stays focused as he brings Shibata up. Rocky cravats, Shibata pushes out of Sliced Bread! Rocky’s leg jams, Shibata CLOBBERS him! Shibata comes back, leg scissor takedown into the HEEL HOOK!! Rocky flails, reaches out, but Shibata keeps him back! Rocky crawls his way over, reaches out, ROPEBREAK! The fans are torn as Shibata lets Rocky go. Shibata stomps Rocky, drags him up, and fires off forearms. Shibata UPPERCUTS, then stomps Rocky down.

Rocky endures, flails, but he’s at center! Rocky TAPS, Shibata wins!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by submission (advances to the Triple Threat)

And with that, we’re two thirds of the way to that contender’s match! Shibata shows Rocky respect, Rocky shows it back, and Rocky tells Shibata to go win that title. Will The Wrestler get past the Triple Threat to get another shot at Jericho?

Well, just like Shibata did with Hook, Bryan Keith makes his way out while Shibata’s leaving. The Bounty Hunter gives The Wrestler a tip of the hat, will this be the final piece to the puzzle? Or will things get literally much bigger for Dynamite?

As the Iron Savages make their entrance, Jacked Jameson tells “all you fat morons, skinny idiots, and Low T Losers to shut up.” The fans boo instead, but Jameson says he rode the Max Rail Line from the airport to the hotel downtown, and all along the tracks, it is filled with trash! Now that they’re here in the Moto Center, it’s funny, because it’s also filled with trash! The fans boo being insulted, but Jameson says he can’t wait to leave this dump. But this is the Sauce Hoss, Beefcake Boulder! He’s sippin’ sauce, livin’ hoss, and taking everybody to #TIDDYCITY! And then he just attacks Keith!!

FTW Contender Series: Bryan Keith VS Beefcake Boulder w/ The Iron Savages!

The bell rings and Boulder fires big elbows and clotheslines into Keith in a corner! Bulky Bronson and Jacked Jameson cheer him on, but Keith slips free of the scoop! Keith KICKS and KICKS and KICKS, then runs, but into a BOOT! Boulder drags Keith up, scoops him again, and flexes as he carries Keith around. POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Keith is tougher than that but Boulder tells Jameson to pass him that Savage Sauce! Jameson gets on the apron but the ref tells him to hop down. This is all a distraction so Bronson can get involved! Boulder brings down the straps but Keith sends Bronson into Tiddy City!

Bronson falls, Keith BITES them tibbies! The fans fire up, Keith runs, but Boulder ELBOWS him down! Boulder goes up, but Keith RISING HEADBUTTS! Boulder wobbles, Keith goes up and reels him in, for DIAMOND DUST!! Cover, Keith wins!!

Winner: Bryan Keith, by pinfall (advances to the Triple Threat)

Now that was a BIG win for Bryan Keith! The Triple Threat is set, will The Bounty Hunter be just one step away from having his prize?


Backstage interview with Pac.

Lexy Nair has found The Bastard somewhere in the bowels of the arena, and says that last week, The Bang Bang Gang had a message for him. Does Pac care to respond? Pac says he couldn’t care less! But obviously, he saw their little message. Credit where credit is due, those guys are very funny chaps. Hilarious, even. And typically, they’re naughty behavior would really ruffle his bastard feathers. But not today. He couldn’t care less. Pac hasn’t felt a thing in weeks! And you expect him to care about those idiots?! In fact, let this be an open invitation! Make him feel something! Make him feel anything, boys! He’s begging you, daring you! Make him care. Try harder.

And as for Lexy, just leave him alone. She nods and leaves. The Bastard is in no mood, but will that all change the next time Bullet Club Gold takes aim at him?


Bullet Club Gold is here!

AEW returns from break, and wait! They’ve attacked Pac! They drag him out here on stage! Jay White kneels beside Pac, gets a mic, and makes Pac sit up. “I bet you care now, don’t you? Bastard.” The Switchblade & The Gunns leave Pac down and out, and White says he told Pac to stay out of their business. Is Pac going to heed the Bang Bang Gang’s warning? Or is he only going to escalate things from here?


The Patriarchy speaks.

Christian Cage tells Nick Wayne, “You have a match right here tonight on Collision. And it’s jut a precursor to this coming Wednesday on Dynamite, because you are gonna be facing… Swerve Strickland. I know you’re ready for it. Yo have our support.” Nick thanks Christian, and says he’s been meaning to talk with him. A year ago, when Swerve jumped him in the garage, Nick was just a boy. A kid. But ever since teaming with Christian, he has changed. Nick is now a man! And tonight, this is just a warm-up. Nick knows he can beat Swerve on his own. Nick heads out, Christian & Mother Shayna beam with pride. Will Swerve’s House soon end up in Wayne’s World?


Orange Cassidy VS Isiah Kassidy!

Freshly Squeezed is certainly feeling out of sorts after Trent Beretta made things all about #JustTrent. But likewise, Private Party might have to get serious as sadly, Marq Quen is again on the shelf. Cassidy or Kassidy, who wins to get themselves back on the right track?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Cassidy as he and Kassidy circle. Zay runs up, Cassidy trips him but Zay kicks him away. Things speed up, Zay hurdles, Cassidy leaps over, then they keep moving.

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

Trent is disappointed but Callis is pleased. Is Cassidy really going to end up turning to the dark side- er, Don Callis Family? Lexy interviews Trent at ringside, saying we saw him attack his former best friends. And now he’s here in the front row to watch the match. Clearly, this is far from over. Trent says being here ringside, it is plainly obvious that he is a better wrestler than Cassidy! The fans boo but Trent says the only reason Cassidy won was because he cheated! Trent claims Cassidy is a sociopath who thinks rules don’t apply to him! But they do! Rules matter!

But while we’re all out here, Trent wants to issue a challenge for Double or Nothing! A straight up wrestling match! Trent VS “that narcissist,” Orange Cassidy! Cassidy DECKS Trent!! Cassidy drags Trent over the railing, security separates them fast! The fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” but we’ll see that soon enough. Will Trent suffer for what he did? Or will his delusional ego fuel him until he’s gotten rid of all his former Best Friends?

Nick Wayne VS Jack Cartwheel!

The Prodigy of The Patriarchy, the honorary son of Christian Cage, is looking to get payback on Swerve himself next Wednesday. But will he be ready to make AEW into Wayne’s World? Or will he struggle to even get past the acrobatic wonder that is Jack Cartwheel?

Six Man Tag: Bryan Danielson & FTR VS Lance Archer & The Righteous!

It would seem there’s a bounty out for The Elite’s opponents in Anarchy in the Arena. The American Dragon, Cash & Dax don’t mind, though, because they’re always down for a fight!

Garcia JAMS Archer, DECKS Vinnie, then hits a SAIDO on Dutch!! Garcia runs up to clothesline Dutch up and out! The fans fire up as Garcia runs off Vinnie and Archer, too! But was the save a little too late with FTR suffering the worst of it? Are The Elite going to make sure there’s no one to even be on Team AEW?

My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision here, and of course more is set up for Double or Nothing. Very good promo from Moxley and Claudio, and Moxley VS Takeshita is made, but it will just be an IWGP World Heavyweight Championship  Eliminator, not a straight up title match. Maybe that means Takeshita wins so that he earns a title match for Forbidden Door, and then he loses there. Though, if that’s the case, Moxley must be getting past Evil at NJPW Dominion just a few weeks before Forbidden Door. Moxley’s great in the ring and all but I’m starting to agree with Shota Umino in his interview, where he said NJPW should not be some feeder to AEW.

Interesting for AEW to have Collision stationed in one spot for a six week stretch like that. Is this to make up for bad ratings/attendance for Collision? I mean, if they keep Collision interesting during that time, sure. Having something like tonight’s FTW Contender Series could help. I figured Hook would make it in, and same for Shibata. It seems the new attitude for The Iron Savages won’t count towards anything on AEW programming, Keith took Boulder out pretty easy. Hook VS Shibata VS Keith is going to be great stuff, and seeing as Jericho’s promo naturally called out Hook, there’s a good chance Hook wins. Though it’d be a great twist in the story if it wasn’t Hook or even Shibata but Keith getting his shot so that he can have another PPV title match under his belt.

Great stuff out of Ospreay VS Taylor, and I figured Ospreay would win. Great little brawl of him fighting off The Kingdom, though I was kinda hoping at least Kyle Fletcher would show up to connect the dots on Don Callis Family backing each other up. Great match of Cassidy VS Kassidy, even with Trent showing up ringside as a partial distraction. Great win for Cassidy, and Cassidy VS Trent is now made for Double or Nothing. That could go either way depending on how this courting of Cassidy goes for Don Callis, which also probably relates to how things go for Ospreay in that International Championship match. I still don’t want Cassidy to go Heel and I still don’t see Callis making a Face run work.

Very good promo from Pac to call out Bang Bang Gang, and wow I didn’t think Bang Bang Gang would get him so soon. Still unclear if this becomes a trios thing even though the Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions do need to defend those titles at some point. But even just Pac VS White 1v1 would be awesome stuff, would love to see it. Good promo from The Patriarchy, and of course Nick Wayne wins, even though this has also been his first singles match in months. He sure isn’t beating Swerve but that probably ends up just a set-up so the Patriarchy can beat Swerve down, keeping the go-home math in Swerve’s favor.

Very good match from Deeb VS Anna, and what an out of the box move for Storm to take Deeb’s banner and make it a dress. Still hard to say what happens at Double or Nothing, but the fans are still just so in love with Storm, it doesn’t feel like she’s losing the title. And great Six Man Tag main event, great win for Bryan & FTR but I should’ve figured there’d be a beatdown. Garcia making the save is great, and honestly it’s a little surprising he wasn’t “the fourth man” over Darby. Garcia has teamed with FTR before, there’s history with Bryan when Garcia was torn between Bryan and Jericho, something about that makes even more sense than Darby just not liking The Bucks & Jack Perry.

But at the same time, Anarchy in the Arena being No Disqualifications, Garcia can still get involved to help. In fact, many AEW wrestlers could get involved to turn this into AEW’s Avengers Civil War/Endgame whatever. Which would be a great way to top off the PPV that makes five years of AEW, honestly.

My Score: 8.7/10
