The Varsity Blondes VS Dean Alexander & Carlie Bravo!

Griff Garrison & Brian Pillman Jr. know the Nightmare Factor is reeling from what QT Marshall did on Dynamite, but they aren’t going to go easy on The Sensation and #GoonPlatoon! Will the Ivy League MVP and Bulletproof BPJ take the win to head up the AEW Tag Division rankings?

The bell rings and Griff starts with Alexander. They tie up, Alexander headlocks, but Griff slips through to get a headlock back. Griff wrenches, hammerlocks, headlocks again, then wrenches again. Tag to BPJ, and BPJ clubs the arm. BPJ CHOPS, wrenches, then tags Griff back in. BPJ YANKS the arm, Griff goes up to drop an ax handle. Griff wrenches, wristlocks, headlocks and hits the takeover.

Britt Baker w/ Rebel VS Alex Gracia!

The Doctor is back in her first match after the brutal Unsanctioned battle with Thunder Rosa! And she’s taking on the Pink Dream, another of La Mera Mera’s students! Will Britt establish that she is still the (self-proclaimed) Face of the Women’s Division in AEW?

Britt wears her new merchandise, commemorating the Unsanctioned match and the blood going down Britt’s face, as she gets a mic. “Look at that face!” But Alex Gracia. She got an entrance and everything! But we all know how this is going to go: Britt’s the star, Gracia’s the “enhancement talent,” this will be quick and no one will remember Gracia. But Gracia had a great showing against Thunder Rosa. And because Britt is so motivated to continue to elevate women’s wrestling on Elevation as the face of women’s wrestling, Britt wants to give Gracia her best showing. Gracia still won’t win, but let’s put some respect on the Pink Dream!

Britt has Rebel move aside, and Rebel still pretends she’s really hurt when she’s not. Britt says she isn’t just a great Deathmatch wrestler, but she’s also great at Greco-Roman, freestyle, and whatever other styles that she can’t remember right now. So how about we do referee position so Gracia can have a fair chance? No funny business, she’ll put the mic down, and she’ll let Gracia approach. Gracia is still wary of Rebel, but Britt says let’s go. Gracia walks over, still doesn’t take this seriously, but she does kneel down and move in. The bell rings, Britt reels Gracia into the Rings of Saturn! “And just like that, the Pink Dream is over. Reba, get the glove.”

The glove is sent in, Britt puts it on, and puts Gracia in the LOCKJAW! Gracia taps, Britt wins!

Winner: Britt Baker, by submission

Well, she didn’t lie. There was no funny business, it was just that she suckered Gracia in from the start. A win is a win, will Britt continue on until she really is the face of the AEW Women’s Division?

 

Preston Vance w/ The Dark Order VS Danny Limelight!

Number 10, and the entire Dark Order, have been having to deal with doubters and deriders like Max Caster and the Hardy Family Office. Will Vance prove that there is still strength in the Numbers?

The bell rings and Vance stares Limelight down. They circle, go around, and tie up. Vance shoves Limelight away, and Limelight gets up in a huff. They circle, Limelight kicks low then throws a forearm! Limelight goes to buckle bump but Vance blocks to bump and bump Limelight in return. Limelight throws forearms but Vance this back and finishes the set of four! Vance scoops, Limelight slips out and shoves but Vance runs him over! Limelight gets up but gets tossed with a back drop! Limelight staggers into a scoop, and Vance carries Limelight around before the FALL AWAY SLAM! Vance storms back over but Limelight sends him into buckles!

The ref counts, Limelight lets off but kicks the rope to jam the arm. Vance hits back, CHOPS and forearms but Limelight kicks!

Winner: Preston Vance, by submission

Rare that Vance wins by submission, but it shows he’s not just one-dimensional! Will Number 10 break into the top five thanks to that new facet of his arsenal?

 

Big Swole VS Jazmin Allure!

Just because she’s not #1 contender right now doesn’t mean the chase after Hikaru Shida’s AEW Women’s Championship is over! Will Swole take control of the rankings again and then finally get after the Full Metal Warrior?

The bell rings and the two circle. Swole and Allure tie up, Swole puts Allure on ropes. Swole lets off to flex, and fans cheer as Allure circles with her again.

Swole drags Allure up, reels her in and underhooks for the TIGER DRIVER, into the CLOVERLEAF! Allure taps, Swole wins!

Winner: Big Swole, by submission

Much like Preston Vance, Swole shows she is more than just power! She gets a submission win, will beefing up her technical prowess be what helps her get to the title?

 

Backstage interview with The Sydal Brothers.

After their confrontation last week with Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky, what is their mindset? Mike won’t lie that he was feeling pretty beat-up. But he’s a Sydal, and Sydals bend but don’t break. That is why Mike is still standing and is ready to fight alongside his brother. Matt says that he is disappointed in Scorpio. Scorpio welcomed Matt to AEW but he turned out to be a phony! And it’s nonsense for them to think the Sydals are the ones to pick a fight with. They’re brothers! Their bond is unbreakable! And Ethan & Scorpio have payback coming! So listen very carefully: The Sydals look through them and their makeshift partnership, and on Elevation, you will see what the Sydals are saying.

 

Michael Nakazawa VS Vary Morales!

Kenny Omega’s best friend, personal assistant and whatever else he needs managed to win last week while still wearing his polo and khakis! Will he “amaze” us by doing it again this week?

Yes, it does seem “MT Nakazawa” will still be in his polo and khakis, but he again doesn’t leave his headset behind. Someone is calling for a quick conversation, but Vary snatches the headset! Nakazawa and Vary tug-o-war, and Nakazawa reels Vary in for a headlock. Vary powers out, then uses the cord to reel him in! Vary dodges, tilt-o-whirls and sends Nakazawa into ropes! Vary keeps moving for a BIG springboard arm-drag! Nakazawa gets up, throws hands but Vary blocks to knuckle lock! Vary stomps a foot, goes up and up and tightrope walks for a FLYING ARM-DRAG! Cover, TWO! Nakazawa is still in this but Vary still has the knuckle lock!

Vary goes up and up again, but Nakazawa trips him up! Nakazawa puts Vary on the ropes, for the HENTAI SLIDE! Nakazawa bounces Vary around to then atomic drop, run and CLOBBER Vary with the forearm! Cover, TWO! Vary survives some serious damage, but Nakazawa uses the headset cord to choke him! The ref reprimands, takes the headset away and Nakazawa brings Vary up for a big forearm! Nakazawa brings Vary around, CHOPS him against ropes, then whips him to ropes. Vary kicks back, runs again, gets around and throws clotheslines! Nakazawa stays up, Vary dodges and dropkicks Nakazawa down! Nakazawa bails out, Vary goes up and LEAPS for a huge crossbody!

Fans fire up with Vary and Vary drags Nakazawa up and into the ring. Cover, TWO!! Nakazawa survives but fans rally behind Vary. Vary goes corner to corner but Nakazawa elbows him, then three point stance for the SPEAR! Nakazawa won’t end it here, he gives pelvic thrusts before he scoops Vary. Vary slips off and rolls Nakazawa up, TWO!! SUPERKICK! Nakazawa staggers into the ref, Vary runs in but the ref is used as a shield! LAPTOP SHOT!! Nakazawa gets away with it, but he won’t end it there! Nakazawa scoops for the TIGER DRIVER 69!! Cover, Nakazawa wins!

Winner: Michael Nakazawa, by pinfall

He may no longer be the Turkish Oil Master, but he is still finding controversial ways to win! Will Nakazawa continue to triumphantly represent the office of Kenny Omega?

 

Lance Archer w/ Jake the Snake VS Baron Black!

The Murderhawk Monster has been warning everyone from TNT Champion, Darby Allin, to The Icon, Sting, that he’ll tear them apart on his way to the title. But only now does he finally return to action. Will the EmpBRUH be the first to suffer Archer’s wrath?

Jake the Snake goes to commentary for this, as Archer drags Baron out to the ring with him!! The Snake is amused as Archer finishes his entrance and the bell rings. Archer throws his shirt at Baron, Baron CHOPS back but it doesn’t even make Archer flinch! Baron fires off more chops, then runs, but gets run over! Archer stomps Baron, Snake chuckles and Archer reels Baron in to CLOBBER him! Archer drags Baron up, chokes him on the ropes, then lets off to run and CLOBBER Baron from behind!

Snake knows Archer has been targeting Sting, but he says Archer is smart enough to know that if you want to get something done, you go to where the noise is. There’s buzz around Sting, that’s where Archer is going. Archer fires off hands on Baron in the corner but lets off as the ref counts. Archer drags Baron up to throw him HARD into the other corner! Archer turns Baron around, goes up the corner and hits a VADER BOMB! Cover, TWO! Fans rally but Archer pushes Baron around. Baron CHOPS and throws hands but Archer DECKS him with one!

Baron sits up in a daze, Archer looms over him, and Archer hauls Baron up to reel him in again. Baron dodges, uppercuts and CHOPS then spins to CHOP again! Baron whips, Archer reverses and runs, but into a boot! Baron comes back, into a choke grip! CHOKE SLAM! Archer brings Baron back up, puts him up top, ROCKS him and then inverted crucifix, and Snake tells commentary thanks for having him. BLACKOUT! Cover, Archer wins!

Winner: Lance Archer, by pinfall

The Murderhawk Monster doesn’t need to change his style, because it keeps on winning! But Archer and Snake aren’t leaving just yet, Snake goes to the ring to speak on a mic. “Now Lance, I wish you’d given me a couple more minutes. I was over there at the desk, and I was about to ask the Big uh… Guy a little something. But I just didn’t have time. But I will tell you, they’re asking us why we’re always invading the space of Sting. Why not?” Well maybe someone will try and remove them. They sit in the locker room cuz no one wants to get in with Archer. No one invites them anywhere. So they invite themselves. Archer is given the mic and says it’s very simple: it’s Archer’s time.

But week after week, Sting gets an interview, Darby gets an interview, but no one wants the Murderhawk Monster. Everyone’s scared. Why are Archer & Snake doing what they’re doing? Archer isn’t a good guy or bad guy. Like he says, everybody dies! But you might as well take one of the biggest dog’s time, and that’s Sting. There’s nothing but respect here because like Archer said, without the Icon, there is no Murderhawk Monster. Sting inspired every wrestler that works in AEW who watched Sting on TNT back in the day. But then Sting came back to TNT and made it all about him! Fans chant for Sting but Archer promises they’ll be chanting for Archer one day.

So one way or another, whether Sting’s with him or against him, Sting’s time is Archer’s time. And like Sting used to say, “It’s Showtime!” #EverybodyDies, but will that apply to The Icon and the Relentless?

 

Ryo Mizunami VS Tesha Price!

Aneki won in quite the match with KiLynn King last week, but she’s still got a ways to go before she can face the AEW Women’s World Champion again. Will Tesha pay the price of paving Ryo’s road to redemption?

The bell rings and Price can’t even take Aneki seriously. They circle, tie up, and are in a deadlock. Ryo powers Price back, puts her on ropes, and Price shouts for her to back off. The ref counts, Ryo lets off and Price gets mad at the ref. Ryo kicks Price low, whips her to ropes, and runs her over! Price flounders about and to a corner, but Ryo brings her around to scoop. Price slips out, pulls Ryo’s hair, then puts her in a corner. The ref counts, Ryo powers up and scoops Price to SLAM her! Ryo gets mad now, and runs in, but into a drop toehold into ropes! Price goes to the apron to ROCK Ryo! Price gets in, bumps Ryo off buckles, then brings her around to whip corner to corner.

Ryo returns and runs Price over again! Ryo fires up, Price flounders and wobbles, and Ryo brings Price up. Price breaks free but Ryo throws a forearm! Price hits back, so Ryo hits again! Ryo eggs Price on, Price throws another forearm! Ryo CHOPS back! Ryo CHOPS again, and Price staggers into another CHOP! Ryo unleashes the machine gun CHOPS!

Price lets off as the ref counts, and then bumps Ryo off buckles. Price handsprings and ROUNDHOUSES Ryo in the corner! Then Price runs to BULLDOG! Cover, TWO!

Price is furious already but Ryo isn’t any happier. Price fires forearms, then whips to ropes, but Ryo reverses. Price kicks back, Ryo ducks but gets the roundhouse! Price reels Ryo in, but Ryo resists the full nelson! Ryo spins out, CHOPS Price, then LARIATS! Price staggers up and ducks the leg to come back, into a scoop and POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Price survives but Ryo drops a leg, brother! And another leg, brother! And a third leg, brother! Cover, TWO! Ryo roars but fans rally up behind her. Price flounders, Ryo drags her up and torture racks, but Price claws at Ryo’s face! Price is free, rolls Ryo up, TWO!! Price almost has Ryo so she rolls her again, TWO!

Ryo swings, but Price gets her for a backslide! Ryo resists, reverses and flips Price but Price sunset flips! TWO, and Price ENZIGURIS! Ryo staggers, Price runs but Ryo CLOBBERS her! Cover, TWO! Price is still in this but Ryo is firing up again! Ryo SPEARS Price down, covers, and wins!

Winner: Ryo Mizunami, by pinfall

Price brought the fire to match Aneki but not the power! Ryo keeps on rolling, and is almost back to the top! Will she get right up past some big names to face Hikaru Shida one more time?

 

Max Caster w/ Anthony Bowens VS Colt Cabana w/ The Dark Order!

Platinum Max is at it again, ready to rip into BOOM BOOM with some bars! “Platinum Max, I’ve got the boom boom. I’ma sweep the Dark Order, get a broom soon. You once were a legend, now you’re just a novelty. The Dark Order’s more forced than your comedy! Yo, and we the real stars. I’ma put you on your back like a RealDoll. Put screws to you like a shop class. You’re getting canceled like your podcast!” It sucks, Colt. Max tried to listen. Bowens says The Acclaimed have arrived, but will they leave with another win?

The bell rings and Cabana rushes Caster. Caster gets to ropes for defense, Cabana lets off and the two circle. They tie up, go all around and Cabana gets Caster in a corner, but Caster turns it around. Caster lets off with a shove but Cabana shoves Caster down! Caster scrambles to a corner, Cabana shows the dancing pecs, and the two go again. Cabana wrenches, hammerlocks and cranks, but Caster spins around to hammerlock back. Cabana headlocks to a takeover, covers, ONE! Cabana headlocks and takes over again, cover, TWO! Caster has a cover, ONE! Cabana keeps the headlock, Caster gets another cover, ONE!

Cabana sits up, snarls and throws body shots. Caster gets the bad arm and CLUBS it! And CLUBS it! Caster drags Cabana back up, Cabana throws hands, but Caster whips Cabana into buckles! Caster gets the top wristlock for the takedown! Cover, TWO! Caster tries again, TWO! Caster SLAMS the arm on the mat, stomps away on it, then rains down fists on Cabana! Cover, TWO!

Winner: Max Caster, by pinfall

Caster didn’t need to drop the mic, he dropped the bass on Boom Boom! Will this help Platinum Max going into his Dynamite showdown with Hangman?

Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, the Butcher and the Blade have proven to be a formidable formation, and Big Money Matt can just smell the profits coming in! Will they continue to cash in the winner’s checks as they plot their payback on Hangman Page?

Winners: The Hardy Family Office, by pinfall

Hardy’s team is a well-oiled machine! But will it turn into a money-printing machine as AEW heads into the Spring?

 

AEW presents: Showcase!

For this segment’s debut edition, Paul Wight interviews John Silver! Silver flexes as Wight asks him to tell us about himself. From Beaver Boys to Dark Order, how has that changed his career? Silver says he had a long journey before arriving in AEW. He started wrestling at 14, because he was a beefy 110 already. Alex Reynolds had just started training, too, and so right away they clicked and became a team. They made it “The Beaver Boys” as a reference to a favorite joke from The Tim & Eric Show. It still took them a long time to really get anywhere. About 15 years, actually.

They got to the show, knew they had a match, and saw the board with them as “local talent.” They thought they were done already. But they still gave it their all against Santana & Ortiz, showed everyone what they had. Stu & Uno came to them, said they were starting to recruit for the Dark Order, so Silver & Reynolds signed up. That was the best decision ever. Wight asks about the impact Brodie Lee had on Silver, both personally and professionally. It was huge. Brodie immediately took the Dark Order to the next level. One word to describe Brodie is “generous.” Brodie was nice, truly cared about helping them rather than himself, and wanted them all to get better as performers and people.

Lastly, Wight notes how Silver left it all in the ring in that TNT Championship match with Darby Allin. Tell us about that and other personal goals Silver has in AEW. Well, Silver needs to heal up after that nasty spill. He fought through the pain to finish, and he was so close, too. It was definitely a moment where Silver realized he was at “that level.” Sting and Darby showing him respect was awesome after growing up watching Sting. Once Silver is healed up, he’ll go after all the gold! He and Reynolds can be tag campions, he can get another shot at the TNT Championship, and why stop there? Get the world title, too! Wight loves that confidence, and is careful giving Silver the handshake. Wight thanks us for tuning in, and hopes you enjoy the rest of the night!

Winner: Matt Hardy, by submission

The first time Hardy uses “The Leech,” it works! Will Hardy be winning his own money on top of the 30% he skims off the HFO?

Hardy gets a mic to say, “Today is April 5th. And that means March Madness is over!” He’s sure there are those at home, watching in their La-Z-Boys because they’re lazy, watching the NCAA basketball championship tonight. But what you should ALWAYS be watching is Hardy! April means Hardy is making 100% of HIS money now! He is so angry after the first quarter, he’ll take it all out on the Dark Order! Number 5 was just number one on the Dark Order hit list! Hardy vows to go through each and every one of them until he destroys the Dark Order! He and the HFO will dominate AEW and take all the money and titles for their own!

Speaking of titles, Hardy heard what Darby Allin had to say. Darby called the “Kingmaker” a sell-out?! Darby grew up idolizing Hardy! Hardy didn’t sell out, he smartened up! Hardy is here to make money and to take that TNT Championship! It will be his along with the paycheck that comes with it! Darby, you’re on Hardy’s list!

 

Scorpio Sky & Ethan Page VS The Sydal Brothers!

The Closer has had it with being a stepping stone to success, and now he and All Ego look to step over others and take everything in AEW for their own! Will Matt & Mike keep that from happening? Or will they just be the first of many?

The teams sort out, Matt starts with Scorpio. They talk trash, Scorpio pushes Matt but Matt points to his third eye. Forearms start flying, Matt kicks then fires off! Ethan gets in, Mike jumps in and it is a brawl! Scorpio & Ethan go to swing but both Sydals go Matrix! The Sydals mule kick and Ethan tumbles out! The Sydals whip, drop toehold and basement dropkick Scorpio! Cover, TWO! Matt keeps on Scorpio, puts him on ropes and tags in Mike, for a draping double stomp! Matt snapmares Scorpio to Mike’s STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Mike fires off on Scorpio in a corner, rains down rights, but has to hit Ethan away!

Scorpio mule kicks Mike, and Ethan drags Mike out as Scorpio DECKS Matt! Ethan RAMS Mike into railing, then gives him an APRON SHIN BREAKER! Scorpio drags Mike in, covers, TWO! Scorpio keeps on Mike, drags him over and tags in Ethan. They mug Mike, and Ethan ROCKS Mike with a right. Ethan CLUBS Mike down, talks trash, then stomps the bad leg. Ethan drags Mike around, then stomps the leg again! Ethan tags Scorpio in, and Scorpio stomps Mike down. Scorpio gets the leg, Mike kicks at him, but Scorpio scrapes soles on Mike’s face! Scorpio drags Mike up, wrenches to a BACKBREAKER, then pushes with the backbreaker rack! Cover, TWO!

Scorpio tags Ethan, they mug Mike again, and Ethan brings Mike up for another SHIN BREAKER! Ethan has the foot with an ankle lock, tags Scorpio, and Scorpio stomps the leg. Scorpio says he’s going to end this, and he works to turn Mike over. Mike resists but is still put into the HALF CRAB! Mike reaches out, Scorpio STOMPS the foot!

Matt rallies with kicks all over Scorpio and a BIG sobat! Ethan gets in to get a WHEEL KCIK! Matt reels Scorpio in, fisherman for the BUSTER! Cover, TWO!

Matt grows frustrated but he drags Scorpio up with a dragon sleeper. Scorpio snapmares free, Ethan tags in, Matt RANAS Scorpio but Ethan BLASTS him with a shoulder! Ethan drags Matt up, runs, but Matt ducks the boot to slip around and ROUNDHOUSE Ethan down! Cover, TWO!! Ethan survives and Matt is shocked! Matt tags Mike in, the Sydals drag Ethan up, but Ethan fights them off! Ethan brings the Sydals around but they double wrench, double wristlock and SLAM Ethan down! Mike high stacks, Scorpio breaks it! Matt dropkicks Scorpio out and regroups with Mike! But the ref won’t let them abuse the double team rule, and Scorpio CLOBBERS Mike!

Scorpio DECKS Matt, Ethan dead lifts Mike to the EGO’S EDGE!! Cover, Ethan & Scorpio win!

Winners: Scorpio Sky & Ethan Page, by pinfall

The Face of the Revolution and All Ego meshed incredibly well as a tag team and this was just their first time out! Is this just the first of many, many, MANY wins for these two?


My Thoughts:

This episode of Elevation was a good length with an hour and 37 minutes, but with 12 matches, none of them were that long. I like that we got this Showcase sit-down interview, where it was partially in character but also pulled back the curtain a little to get some genuine out-of-character answers from Silver, and it’s bringing us back to the “From Unwanted to Undeniable” segments with Cody Rhodes interviewing members of AEW. That is again how Elevation has felt: a throwback to Dark’s first few weeks, but that’s not always a bad thing. However, with the 12 matches all being short, that is how Dark feels now, and that’s not really a good thing.

Regular Dark should be the short YouTube show with all the short matches, and Elevation should be longer but with less matches. I do like that Britt made her match with Gracia into a unique take on a squash, where it was a trap more than anything. Hangman’s opener was good, everything with the Dark Order was good because of the stories that are intertwining, such as with Max Caster and the Hardy Family Office, and there were some good progress here and there for other stories, like Archer going after Sting or Scorpio & Ethan teaming up, but it’d all feel more substantial if it was maybe 8 matches, not 12, and those 8 got to breathe.

My Score: 8.2/10

The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

The fans fire up as Hobbs ends up on the tables! The fans give Sammy another beer, to SMASH it on Hobbs again! Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a LADDER! The fans are loving it, because now we’ve entered TLC territory! Sammy gets that ladder in the ring while the fans lose their minds!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are ready for another fight with the BCC, but for right now, they’ve got the STP! Will the #TopGuys still be FTR? Or will Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor himself prove they’re in that conversation now?

The teams sort out and Dax starts against #TAIGASTYLE. Lee and Dax tie up, Lee waistlocks and headlocks, then wrenches to hammerlock. Lee shoves Dax then claps at him, but Dax keeps it cool. Dax tags Cash, Cash runs up but Lee avoids him. The two feel things out, tie up and go around, then break the deadlock. They reset, tie up again, and Lee wrenches to spin Cash and wrangle him. Lee steps over, has La Magistrol, TWO! Lee pushes Cash around and then dances at him. Cash storms up but Lee backs off. Lee smirks at Cash then resets with him. They tie up, Lee headlocks, but Cash powers out.

Cash drops, drops, and hurdles to then ELBOW Lee down! Then arm-drag! Cash has the armlock and he slaps Lee around. Cash tags Dax, whips Lee, drop toehold and elbow drop! Fans rally up and Dax brings Lee up. Dax wrenches but Lee powers him to the corner! Tag to Shane but Dax gets away. Shane and Dax circle, talk some trash, and tie up. Dax headlocks, Shane powers up and out, but Dax RAMS him! Shane says not today! Dax runs again, RAMS again, but Shane stays up. Dax RAMS Shane again, and again, but Shane scoops! Dax slips free, waistlocks, but Shane bucks the O’Conner. Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges, but stays back to avoid hands.

The fans fire up as Dax and Shane reset, tie up, and Dax headlocks. Shane powers up and out, Dax SHOTGUNS him! Shane comes back but Dax avoids the senton! Dax wrenches, but Shane LARIATS! Shane drags Dax up, tags Lee, and STP mugs Dax. Lee throws knees, snapmares Dax and basement dropkicks! Lee drags Dax up, ROCKS hi, but Dax puts him in a corner to CHOP! And CHOP! Dax brings Lee around, wrenches, but Lee ROCKS Dax! And CHOPS him! Dax CHOPS again! And again! Lee swings, Dax ducks and picks Lee up, but Shane tags in before the atomic drop! Lee hobbles away, Dax ROCKS Shane!

Dax runs up to whip Lee but Lee reverses. Dax rebounds off buckles to CLOBBER Lee, but Shane CLOBBERS Dax! Cover, TWO! Dax survives, Shane talks trash on Cash, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Dax up, puts him in a corner, then winds up to CHOP! Dax sputters and Shane talks more trash. Shane stands Dax up, winds up, and CHOPS again! Shane keeps Dax in the corner, whips him corner to corner hard, and Dax falls back! Shane talks more trash to Cash but the ref keeps Cash back. Shane tags Lee, STP mugs Dax and Lee puts Dax in a corner. Lee fires forearms, then climbs up to rain down fists! Lee gloats but Dax CHOPS from below! Lee stomps but Dax CHOPS! They clinch, go around, and end up on ropes. Shane tags in, he throws hands on Dax! Shane scoops and SLAMS Dax, then stares Cash down while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Shane has Dax in a bearhug! Dax endures the squeeze but the fans rally up. The ref checks Dax, the hand drops once. The hand drops twice! But then Dax comes back to life! And he BITES Shane’s forehead! The ref reprimands but Shane lets Dax go. Dax back suplexes, but falls over under Shane! Shane covers, TWO! Tag to Lee, and STP gets Dax up. Lee whips Dax but Dax turns the back drop into a cradle! TWO, and Dax CHOPS! Dax puts on a SLEEPER, but Lee RAMS him iont a corner! Tag to Shane, Dax fires hands on STP!

Lee waistlocks, Cash switches, but Lee switches! Cash bucks the O’Conner but Lee distracts the ref so Shane can DECK Cash! Lee rolls Cash up, TWO!!! Cash survives but Lee brings him up. Lee whips Cash at the corner but Cash BLASTS Shane! Cash goes up and over Lee, then does it again! Tag to Dax, sunset flip leads to the pop-up, BULLDOG BOMB! Cover, FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Ladybird Monroe!

La Mera Mera is ranked #2 in the Women’s Division, and we know the AEW Women’s World Championship is spoken for in terms of a challenger. Will Rosa then look to solidify her spot in the TBS Championship chase?

The bell rings and Rosa circles with Monroe. They tie up, go around, and Rosa waistlocks to SLAM Monroe down. Rosa then facelocks, waistlocks, but Monroe switches. Rosa pries the hold to switch, hammerlock, and then chicken wing! Rosa wants the crossface, too, but Monroe wrenches out to hammerlock back. Monroe pulls hair, talks trash and CLUBS Rosa. Rosa gets mad now. Monroe whips, Rosa reverses and CHOPS! Monroe goes to a corner, and Rosa CHOPS her again! Rosa fires off forearms then bumps Monroe off buckles!

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

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

 

Six Man Tag: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn VS The Iron Savages & Jacked Jameson!

As the Bang Bang Scissor Gang looks to dominate all of AEW & ROH, they are trying a team remix! Max Caster has a rap for the occasion! “Acclaimed & The Bang Bang, we the real savages. ‘Bout to bring the fight like me against management! These guys’re so mad, they prolly see red!” Oh no, Caster loses the flow! This is a travesty! Bowens takes over to say, “SPRIIINGFIELD, MIZZOU-REEE~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~! Will Billy, his son Colten, and the Switchblade make a killer trio? Or will they all end up sipping the Savage Sauce?

The trios sort out and White wants to start, but so does Billy. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” so White says okay, Billy can start. Billy stares down Beefcake Boulder and the two circle. They tie up, Billy headlocks but Boulder powers up and out! Billy RAMS Boulder, neither falls, and Boulder shows off #TiddyCity! Billy says okay, “SUCK IT!” and eye poke! Billy then runs Boulder over! The fans fire up, Billy runs and drops an elbow, but Boulder moves! Boulder then runs Billy over! Boulder swivels hips, tags Bulk Bronson, and they get Billy up. It’s time to visit the city! But Billy turns it around and shoves Bronson into Boulder!

Billy brings Bronson over, tags Colten, and they whip, body shot, BOOT and DROPKICK! The father-son combo has the fans fired up, and Colten brings Bronson up. Colten whips Bronson to a corner as White argues with Jacked Jameson. Colten goes to a corner, finger guns with his dad, but Jameson now argues with Billy. The ref is busy breaking those two up as Colten runs in, Boulder pulls Bronson to safety! Colten tumbles up and out and to the floor! Austin and Bowens check on Colten but Bronson SMACKS Colten off the apron! Bronson puts Colten in, covers, ONE!! Bronson drags Colten up and FLAPJACKS him off buckles!

Bronson goes up the ropes to HIP DROP Colten! Tag to Jameson, he HIP DROPS Colten! Boulder tags in, he stomps around and the fans fire up. Boulder brings Colten up, to suplex high and hard!

Winners: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn, by pinfall

It was a rocky start but a smooth finish as the hybrid trio works out! Will this super group be untouchable all the way to the top of the mountain?

 

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

 

Bryan Keith VS Malakai Black!

The Bounty Hunter wants gold, but he’ll have to step into the shadows first. The House of Black has been nothing but brutal and sadistic, will Malakai add Keith to the body count?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Keith stares Malakai down, and both men hear the fans cheering. Malakai and Keith circle, tie up, and Keith wrenches and wristlocks. Malakai moves around, spins through and wrenches to snapmare. Malakai headlocks but Keith slips out to wrench and wristlock again. Malakai snapmares and chinlocks but Keith wrenches out again. Malakai breaks free, tripos Keith but Keith kicks him away. Malakai storms back up but Keith trips him to cover, ONE! The two stand off and the fans rally up. Malakai and Keith reset and circle again. They tie up, Malakai ROCKS Keith, then ROCKS him again!

Malakai whips, Keith reverses but things speed up. Keith BOOTS Malakai down! Fans fire up with Keith and he storms up on Malakai. Keith ROCKS and CHOPS on repeat! Malakai KNEES Keith away, but Keith KICKS in return! And KICKS! Malakai KICKS back! Keith steps over, snap suplexes, and he then drops a knee! Cover, TWO! Malakai snarls but the fans rally with Keith. Keith brings Malakai around, reels him in, underhooks, but Malakai slips free of the lift! Keith fireman’s carries but Malakai slips free to KICK! Malakai blocks a kick to ELBOW Keith down! Keith goes to the apron and Malakai drags him up.

Mark gets the kendo stick back, takes aim again, but then thinks of something else. He has a STEEL SPIKE! The same kind Julia Hart stabbed Mark with just a couple weeks ago! Mark aims at Malakai, but Malakai dodges! The spike stabs the buckle pad!

BLACK MASS, and then DANTE’S INFERNO!! The House of Black took Mark’s revenge and turned it around on him. Will Mark learn that no matter what, The House Always Wins?

 

Serena Deeb VS Lady Frost!

The Professor of Professional Wrestling is looking for her path to a championship, and you do that by winning. Deeb had studied up for Kiera Hogan, but cards are subject to change. Will Deeb still pass the pop quiz? Or will she be iced out of the title chase already?

Eddie Kingston makes his way to the ring!

Springfield cheers on The Mad King as he joins commentary, just as Bryan said he would. But he isn’t putting on the headset just yet, he must want to wait on the legend. Will Eddie’s hero slay the American Dragon? Or will Bryan beat Blue Thunder like he did Blue Justice?

Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

Trios Triple Threat: Private Party & Matt Sydal VS Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Bryan Keith, Komander & Penta El Zero Miedo!

With all the trios titles belonging to the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, many others are trying their hands at the trios game. Will Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen and the Zen Assassin open their third eyes? Will Dante, Darius & The Sight to See be flying high? Or will the Bounty Hunter, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion and The Man with No Fear steal the spotlight from them all?

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle.

Then Quen springboards to SPLASH Keith! Cover, TWO! Keith is still in this and he tags out to Penta! The fans fire up as Penta somersaults in, but Quen shows he can somersault, too. The fans rally for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tells Quen to listen, CERO! MIEDO! Queen says okay, but “What do we want? SHOTS!” Quen shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove. The fans fire up, and Penta makes the pass to Alex Abrahantes!

Penta says again, CERO! MIEDO! Another pie face, but Dante tags in off Quen. Dante shoves Penta but then Komander tags in. Quen jumps on Dante, he and Penta mug him, and then everyone else rushes in! It’s a nine man melee and the ref reprimands them all! Things spill out, Dante and Komander stay in. Dante breaks free to JUMP KNEE, then runs, but Komander dodges!

Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

Komander feeds Dante to Keith’s fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, Zay breaks it! The fans rally, Quen tags in off Keith, and Quen stomps away on Action as Rampage goes picture in picture!

Quen stomps and stomps but the ref counts. Quen lets off to drag Action up and bump him off buckles. Quen runs up to RAM Action, then tags in Zay. Private Party keeps Action trapped, Zay ENZIGIRIS Action down! Zay stomps now, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Zay lets off to kick-step, then he tags Sydal. They stomp Action, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Sydal lets off to rally the fans, then he drags Action up. Action throws body shots but Sydal CLUBS him down. Sydal stands Action up again to back suplex, but Action lands out, only for Sydal to HEEL KICK! Tag to Quen and Quen slingshot SENTONS!

But Penta’s right there! APRON FEAR FACTOR!! Penta rises but Zay springboards, triangle jump STUNNER! Quen gets in, Zay gives him the boost to go up and up and SUPER SWANTON onto everyone else!!

A huge win for this eccentric trio, will they be hunting down The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass? Or will they try for the Bullet Club Gold’s gold instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

After taking a week off for the NBA All-Star Game, Saturday nights are once again good for a fight. Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb each return to in-ring action, will these two rivals keep pace in the chase for gold? And we just saw Bryan Keith win big in the trios match, but he’ll jump right back into singles action against Malakai Black! Will the Bounty Hunter get another big win in his hunt for opportunity? Or will the Dark Father prove the House Always Wins?

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya and Harley and isn’t sure how much they’ve been watching Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker, but those two are off on their path of romance. Saraya DGAF about Soho x Parker!! She has things going on, too! That traitor isn’t getting under her skin even a little bit! Harley calms Saraya down, and they do breathing exercises. Why’s Harley flicking her tongue when she does that…? But Saraya wants to talk business. Y’know how her family is big famous wrestling royalty in the UK? Well, see, she has a special announcement. Her brother, “Zodiac” Zak Knight, has just become All Elite!!

Saraya has her brother walk into frame, and yeah, he’s scary, right? Zak could’ve been yours, Ruby! Saraya was gonna set Ruby up with him, “the most eligible bachelor in the Norwich area!” And Ruby messed that up just to be with that greasy, slimy, whatever Parker is! Harley says yeah! Just look at Zak! Isn’t he hot? He’s so hot! The whole Knight family is hot! Saraya is a bit taken aback by that, and she sprays water at Harley. Harley just embraces it so that doesn’t make for a good deterrent anymore… Saraya says it’s okay, Harley’s about to be fixed. But Saraya also promises, “Things are about to get really spicy around here.”

The Outcasts head out, and Zak’s scowl scares Renee a bit. Will Ruby & Parker regret making their romance public?

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson used, or rather abused, their power as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW to have an AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution. However, they are also very upset at the continued disrespect. Will that really stop after they take their frustrations out on these young indie guys?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Lyons. Nick doesn’t even bother taking off his trilby (or is it a fedora?) as he circles with Lyons. Nick calls for a knuckle lock but then kicks low and CLUBS away! The fans boo but Nick soaks it up. Nick whips Lyons, Lyons reverses but Matt tags in. Nick hurdles then whips Lyons, Lyons ducks Nick but Matt CLOBBERS him! Matt takes off his suit jacket to then drags Lyons up. Matt TOSSES Lyons to the corner, Lyons tags in Cappuccino! The fans fire up for Cappuccino as he circles with Matt. Matt mockingly applauds, also calls for a knuckle lock, but also kicks low!

Matt CLUBS away on Cappuccino, just like Nick, but then Matt cools off. Matt brings Cappuccino up to throw hands, whips him to ropes, but fakes the superkick to DDT instead! Fans boo but Matt drags Cappuccino up. Matt whips Cappuccino to the corner, he and Nick coordinate to LARIAT GAMANGIRI COMBO! Tag to Nick, he BLASTS Lyons, and then Matt whips Nick in so he can go up and over and PENALTY KICK Lyons! Matt stomps Cappuccino, stands him up, then HOTSHOTS him into Nick’s DISCUS LARIAT! Tag back to Matt and he drags Cappuccino up. The fans rally as hard as they can, but Cappuccino gets the MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Well, turns out they call that the “Tony Khan Driver” now, seems they don’t care to be associated with the Wrestling Observer anymore. But then they feel disrespected when the ref hesitates to raise their hands? Nick gets the mic to tell Paul Turner that when he raises their hand, what name did he use? Did he really just call him “Nick?” That is disrespectful! Next time, it’s a fine! And Schiavone, please, join them in the ring. Fans boo and Schiavone isn’t sure what to do. But they are EVPs, he doesn’t really have a choice… Schiavone joins the Bucks, and Nick promises they won’t harm him.

Last week, Schiavone was in the ring with them and Nick swears, he tripped on his own shoe, knocked into Schiavone and that is why Schiavone fell over. Nick wants to make it clear, and he apologizes for that. Matt says to show how sorry they are, and how much they love him, they got him a $25 Amazon gift card. They are sorry, Schiavone, but that isn’t the only thing they’re sorry about. See, they’re also sorry that, uh… they can’t get the bloodstains left by Darby Allin & Sting out of their $5,000 suits. Schiavone says yes, that is a problem… Will they rescind the $1,000 fine on them by any chance?

Sorry, no, they can’t do that. But there are a couple things that they won’t be sorry about. The first thing is beating the hell out of Darby for all the trash he talked about them publicly. The second thing, and this is one Schiavone will really like, is them taking Sting and pinning him to the mat, saying goodbye to one of the most legendary careers in all of pro-wrestling! Fans boo but Matt continues to tell “Stinger,” call them Father Time. Because just like time, the Bucks are undefeated. And just like time, the Bucks are coming for Sting! “Now everybody, let’s have a great show! There’s a great line-up on the way!

“Tony’s over there at the desk, he’s one of the best play by play guys in the business! C’mon, everybody! AEW chant on three? One, two, three! A E DUB! A E DUB! Alright, let’s go~!” Matt fist bumps Schiavone, then leaves with Nick. The farce continues, but will there be nothing even Darby & Sting can do about it? Or will the Icon still find a way to retire on top?

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Rampage returns and he welcomes a young man who has had a busy year. He’s a brand new father but fighting the Don Callis Family, it’s Sammy Guevara! Tulsa cheers as The Spanish God heads to the ring, back on his feet after the ambush by Will Hobbs. Schiavone shakes hands with Sammy, and Schiavone congratulates Sammy on last week’s win against Jeff Hardy. But now, to the comments Callis had for Sammy just last Wednesday Night Dynamite. The insults he hurled at Sammy, Callis clearly has it out for him.

Sammy says it is a mix of emotions. Last week, he got in the ring with a childhood hero in Jeff Hardy. But on the other hand, he’s pissed off because Hobbs put him through a table! Sammy tells Hobbs that Sammy always knew Hobbs had endless potential, and superstardom written all over him. But he can do that all on his own! Hobbs doesn’t need Callis sucking the life out of Hobbs’ career! Hobbs is a star all on his own, but it’s too late now for him to figure that out because he’s pissed Sammy off. So enough talk! Get your ass out here so they can fight! The Don Callis Family music plays, but it’s only Callis walking out here.

Callis has a mic to taunt Sammy, “Look, everybody! It’s Mr. Mom! You’re back at work after nursing the child. I mean, the only thing you’ve done of any note in the last six months is reproduce, and you shouldn’t be proud of that. Dogs do it. Even these people can do it!” Fans boo but Callis says Sammy used to be a great athlete. He used to be a guy Callis wanted in the Family. But now, Sammy has become like so many others: a weak, pathetic little cuck! Sammy doesn’t get what Callis is doing repeating himself, but then HOBBS gets in from the crowd side! Sammy dodges, SUPERKICKS, and Hobbs bails out!

Sammy eggs Hobbs on, then builds speed, to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Hobbs! Sammy says bang bang, and he gets a chair! Sammy winds up to SMACK Hobbs on the back! Hobbs hobbles but gets in the ring. Sammy pursues, aims again, and he JAMS Hobbs low! Then SMACKS him on the back! Sammy throws off the jacket, waits on Hobbs to turn around, but Hobbs fights off the torture rack to LARIAT Sammy inside out!! Callis smiles as he tells Hobbs to end this! SPINEBUSTER! And then another SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs is gonna do Sammy like he did Jericho! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!

Hobbs stands over Sammy and Callis applauds. The Powerhouse has all but pulverized Sammy, and Callis even gets his shots in! Will the Don Callis Family make sure there’s nothing left of Sammy to go home to his wife and daughter by the end of this?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“I had that match. I had it won, if it wasn’t for that bald headed, sad, poor excuse of a man, I would’ve had it and I deserved it. I had that win and I deserved it, on my own.” Julia Hart calms her down and says it’s okay. They will have their comeuppance. And while seeking their revenge, they will dig three graves: one for Willow, for Kris, and for Stokely. But who does Skye want first? Whoever will step up. Whoever has the balls enough to step up and fight her! Will the Chicago Skye continue to darken until she blots out the light?

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

Toni Storm’s superfan still wants to prove herself to her hero, but that really depends on if Storm is even watching this. Will Mariah finally have Storm’s approval? Or will the Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they go along the ropes. They end up in a corner, get out of a corner, and Mariah pulls hair. The ref counts, Mariah lets off and shoves Anna, but Anna doesn’t budge! Anna smirks as she and Mariah rest and tie up. Anna waistlocks, shoves, but Mariah slides to sweep the legs! Mariah runs but Anna dodges the dropkick! Anna runs to BLOCKBUSTER! Anna then ROCKS Mariah, whips her, but Mariah reverses to ROCK Anna! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah brings Anna around to bump off buckles, and CHOP again!

Mariah eggs Anna on so Anna CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then digs her boot in as Rampage goes picture in picture!

The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, and she brings Anna into ropes to hook her up. The ref counts as Mariah chinlocks Anna against ropes, but she lets off at 4. Mariah kisses Anna on the cheek, then runs to DROPKICK Anna in the back! Anna falls out of the ropes and Mariah soaks up the heat. Mariah stands Anna up, runs, and SHOTGUNS her down! Anna flounders out of the ring and Mariah takes a bow. Mariah then goes out to stalk Anna, and she brings Anna around the way. Mariah puts Anna against barriers to CHOP her! And SPANK her! Mariah laughs while Anna hobbles away. Mariah pursues to then CHOP again!

Anna is stinging while Mariah dusts herself off. Mariah hears the count but she whips Anna into the barriers first! Mariah then leaves Anna behind and “apologizes” to the ref. Mariah goes back out after Anna, soaks up the heat, and vogues for the camera. But Anna throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS back! Mariah pushes Anna into the ring, takes her time posing before going back in, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Anna whips Mariah to a corner. Mariah slips out to the apron, avoids Anna’s haymaker, and ROUNDHOUSES in return! Anna staggers, Mariah shouts and climbs up, but Anna ROCKS her! Anna then gets space, runs up, and HEEL KICKS! Anna then wrenches the arms, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Anna grows frustrated but she drags Mariah up and hooks the arms. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

Anna hops on as a backpack, but Mariah RAMS her into buckles! Mariah is free, and she puts Anna up top. Mariah DOUBLE CHOPS, then gets some space. Mariah runs up to STRATUSPHERE! Anna flounders away and Mariah shouts out Storm! Mariah runs up, but the hip attack misses! Anna runs up to kick, dragon sleeper, and BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO?!? Mariah survives and Anna grows frustrated! The fans rally as Anna sits Mariah up, into the QUEEN- NO, Mariah blocks the sleeper! Anna fights through to have the QUEENSLAYER! Mariah flails, reaches out, but she BITES Anna’s arm!!

The ref reprimands but Mariah is free all the same! Fireman’s carry, MAYDAY DRIVER!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

One thing is for sure, Mariah is just as looney as her role model! Will she follow in Storm’s footsteps to become a champion in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is with the lovey-dovey couple, how’d the date go? Ruby says she felt it went really well. Parker is relieved, he didn’t wanna say it first and be wrong. It was incredible, everything he hoped it’d be, he had a great time. Renee points out that in the opposite direction, Saraya is becoming unraveled. If they didn’t hear her comments earlier, she had some rather choice words. And apparently, she was going to hook Ruby up with her brother? Ruby says that’s weird and Renee agrees. Plus, Zak is more like a poor man’s Tom Hardy, big pass. Parker isn’t sure being Norwich’s Most Eligible Bachelor is a bad of honor, either. And honestly, “wrestling royalty?” That’s a stretch.

Ruby tells Saraya that she said she doesn’t care, that Ruby doesn’t get under her skin, but here’s the reality: for the last year, Saraya told Ruby that Ruby needed Saraya, when it was really the other way around. Saraya is sad and unhappy without Ruby. And say all you want about Ruby, but talk bad on Parker and that’s when they have problems. Ruby said she needed space, and in that space, she found something real. And Saraya may be sick of hearing it, of seeing it, but hey, why not invite everyone along? Bring the cameras, bring the crew, and they’ll shove this right down Saraya’s throat!

Parker’s pretty fired up. He says Ruby’s hot when she’s mad. Ruby thanks him for the compliment, and the two head out to get some drinks. Will they make Saraya so sick of love she’ll never dare speak their names again?

 

Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Jake Hager w/ Hornsby!

The Undisputed Kingdom were bullying Orange Cassidy, and apparently the Big Hurt didn’t like seeing that. Will Oklahoma’s own break the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will Roddy be too strong even for the All-American Sooner?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hager and Hornsby. Roddy and Hager circle, tie up, and Hager powers Roddy to a corner. Roddy slips free, shoves Hager, and fans boo. The two reset, they circle again, and Roddy gets around to waistlock. Roddy then turns Hager around to CHOP, but Hager doesn’t budge! Fans fire up and Roddy is a bit scared, so Roddy bails out. The Kingdom pep talk Roddy while the ring count climbs. Roddy hurries in, dodges Hager, then things speed up. Roddy leaps but Hager catches him! Hager puts Roddy in a corner, runs up but into a BOOT! Roddy CHOPS, but Hager catches it?!

Fans fire up as Hager TOSSES Roddy, then CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! Hager whips corner to corner hard, runs up, but Rodd bails out again! Hager snarls, goes out after Roddy, and stalks him around the way. Matt Menard’s on commentary, he says watch out for “these bozos,” Taven & Bennett. Hager stares them down as he walks past, then fires off on Roddy! Roddy tumbles, Hager puts him in the ring, but Roddy KICKS Hager in the ropes! Roddy CLUBS away on Hager, then tells Tulsa to shut up! Roddy runs, but into a BOOT! Hager storms up, puts Roddy in a corner, and then TOSSES him across the ring!

The fans fire up as Hager LARIATS Roddy down! Cover, TWO! Roddy stays in this but Hager digs his knees into Roddy! Roddy flails and reaches out but Hager traps the arms. The ref counts as that knee gets a bit high on the chest and into the neck area. Hager lets off, but he puts Roddy in a corner to fire off body shots! Roddy staggers away as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Hornsby cheers Hager on as he clotheslines Roddy in the corner! Hager ROCKS Roddy while talking trash to The Kingdom, then he hauls Roddy up top. Hager climbs, brings Roddy up, but Roddy clubs at Hager’s leg. Roddy throws body shots, slips underneath, and then kicks the legs out! Hager ends up stuck in the ropes, and Roddy runs to STRONG KNEE him in the back! Hager falls and Roddy stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Roddy lets off to flex, but only The Kingdom cheers him on. Roddy stands on Hager in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, but then he springboard stomps Hager down!

Roddy gets the legs and has Hager in ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager sputters, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down by dropping knees, then he digs a knee into Hager’s back. Roddy has the chinlock but Hager endures and fights up. The fans rally, Hager throws body shots, and then Hager runs, but into a DROPKICK! Roddy hurries to cover, TWO! Roddy drags Hager from ropes, stomps him, then paces around while The Kingdom talks trash on Hager. Roddy glares at Hornsby but Hornsby dares him to do something! Roddy goes back to Hager to rain down fists! Roddy then lets off to put Hager in a corner.

Taven seems to be talking trash on Hornsby, probably calling him a Melvin like does everyone. Roddy stands Hager up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he scoops to BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down with another chinlock, again digging in a knee. Hager endures, fights up, and Rampage returns to single picture. Hager throws body shots and is free, but Roddy CLUBS, KNEES and runs, but into a lift! Roddy sunset flips, Hager stays up and he drags Roddy up to TOSS to a corner! Roddy BOOTS, ENZIGIRIS and then OLYMPIC SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Roddy grows frustrated as Hager stays in this.

Hornsby smacks the steel steps to rally the fans, and now Bennett glares at him. And then Taven comes in from the other side, Hornsby realizes he’s in a 2v1 situation here. Hornsby wants them to calm down, but then he pulls out a SUPER CONFETTI POPPER! It goes off and Hornsby says take that! The Kingdom still storms up on him, but here comes Orange Cassidy! The AEW International Champion is returning the favor to Hager by helping out his buddy. The Kingdom says fine, bring it then! Cassidy says hold on, he has THE HAT! He throws the purple bucket hat into Hager, and Hager loves that hat!

Cassidy then dodges Taven, shoves him into Bennett, and down they go! Cassidy rains down fists, and Hager powers up with the hat!! Roddy runs up but Hager LARIATS! And LARIATS! And OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! The fans are thunderous as Hager says, “I like this hat!!” Then Hager runs corner to corner, goes up and up, and hits the HAGER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Hager snarls! But Taven sends Cassidy into railing! The 2v1 has gotten the better of Cassidy, and Roddy JAWBREAKERS Hager! Hager staggers, Roddy storms up, OLYMP- NO, Hager slips free to GUT RWENCH BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Roddy survives, but Hager has the ANKLE LOCK!! Roddy flails, rolls over, and he kicks from below! Hager still holds on, ANKLE LOCK! Roddy flails, reaches out, but Taven throws Cassidy into the ring! The ref is distracted by that, Taven & Bennett get on the apron but Hager CLOBBERS them both! Roddy STRONG KNEES!! Hager falls, Roddy covers, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

Despite having back-up and the power-up, Hager still couldn’t beat the numbers game! Roddy is rolling towards Revolution, will he be taking the International title away from Cassidy?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage that was again booked to have story. The Bucks of course won their match, but they did what I was hoping they’d do in changing up their style. They purposefully didn’t use superkicks, and then they are apparently changing up the names of their finishers as if to say Heel Bucks don’t care about their YouTube show or Dave Meltzer. Their post match promo was good, too, but it didn’t really add too much more to the heat they’ve already got. And pretty good promos out of this Ruby VS Saraya story. I thought Ruby VS Saraya was just going to be the thing, but now it feels like they might give us a Mixed Tag of Ruby & Parker VS Saraya & Zak.

Really good Trios Triple Threat to open, and I love that it was Keith, Komander & Penta winning rather than taking a loss to the established-ish trios. The feud of Private Party and Top Flight really needs to be settled by just those teams anyway. Pretty good promo from Sammy Guevara to call out the Don Callis Family, but of course it turned into Hobbs beating Sammy up. Good promo from Skye and Julia, I really thought AEW would’ve figured out a contender to the TBS Championship by now, but maybe that’ll happen very quickly in the next week. Really good match from Mariah May and Anna Jay, and a really good win for Mariah. But you can bet Storm didn’t pay attention to this at all, just like the other times.

And very good main event from Hager VS Roddy, with The Kingdom of course overbooking this. The bit with Hornsby was fun, and Cassidy showing up was also a logical move. I like that Hager’s hat is now the same as Cassidy putting hands in his pockets, but of course Hager lost out. Roddy needs momentum going into the title match so he had to win this one, and he probably just waits it out while Cassidy gets worn down. But at this point, it’ll probably still take a lot of cheating for Roddy to win the International title and bring it into The Undisputed Kingdom.

My Score: 8.7/10
