Per the rules, AEW “shuffles the deck,” and we start with the Clubs first! And first out for that group, it’s CHRISTIAN CAGE!

AEW World Championship Triple Threat: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS PAC VS Orange Cassidy!

From AAA to AEW to Impact, The Cleaner is becoming a belt collector, but “let’s call a spade a spade.” The Bastard has unfinished business with the Best Bout Machine, and he doesn’t exactly respect Freshly Squeezed.

No count outs, no disqualifications, no Champion’s Advantage for the man with more simultaneous championships than anyone in wrestling today! What are the odds that something wild will happen at Double or Nothing?

The introductions are made, AEW’s belt is raised, and we see who overcomes two opponents at once!

Stadium Stampede 2: The Inner Circle VS The Pinnacle!

Chris Jericho and company challenged The Elite to this very match type last year, and did not win. They challenged MJF’s faction to Blood & Guts, and did not win. This rematch has some of the highest stakes possible, because if Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Jake Hager, Santana & Ortiz lose again, they are no longer a faction! Will this be the end of the Inner Circle?

My Jerkoff- er, Maxwell Jacob Friedman’s limousine pulls right into TIAA Bank Field’s, well, field, and he hops out. He calls out Jericho and his boys, and wonders if they’re afraid of The Pinnacle. “You should be! Chris, do you remember when you told me the worst was yet to come? Well guess what? For the first time in your miserable life, you were right.” But Jericho didn’t know he was talking about tonight and talking about himself, because MJF swears tonight is the LAST night of the Inner Circle! “Because my name is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and I’m better than you, and you know it!”

But the Inner Circle’s music hits, and they REPEL DOWN THE SCOREBOARD! Fans sing Judas for them as they descend onto the battlefield! MJF seems in disbelief, but the Inner Circle is ready for war. MJF hypes himself up as the Inner Circle walk down the bleachers, but where is the rest of the Pinnacle? MJF runs back inside his limo as the Inner Circle rush up to it. But there are other motors revving, and the Pinnacle rides in on FTR’s truck! MJF is staying safe in his limo while his minions battle for him! Wardlow and Hager, Spears and Sammy, Santana and Dax Harwood, Ortiz and Cash Wilder!

It is a scrap all around the field, mixing and matching, and Spears brings Sammy to the ring at the 50 yard line! Sammy tackles Spears in return, a bell rings and now Stadium Stampede begins! Sammy rains down hands, Spears turns it around to give hands back. Ortiz throws Cash into walls, while Wardlow and Hager avoid falling into a bonfire?! Spears whips Sammy to the apron but Sammy GAMANGIRIS! Sammy springboards and CUTTERS! Spears writhes but Sammy heads to the apron. Sammy KICKS Wardlow away, goes up top, and SHOOTING STARS! Spears moves, Sammy lands on his feet but runs into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB!

MJF creeps out, feeling confident now that he’s safe. But Jericho was waiting for him! The team leaders are alone, and MJF says, “Bring it, you piece o’ shit.” Jericho steps up and they brawl in the red zone! Jericho CLUBS MJF down, rains down fists, while Santana, Ortiz and FTR go up the bleachers. Cash throws dust in Santana’s eyes! Jericho opens the car trunk, MJF stops from being crushed by the door, and uses a FIRE EXTINGUISHER to blast Jericho in the face! MJF shouts, “Screw you, Jericho!” and runs away. Jericho, enraged, gives chase into the backstage area!

The brawling in the bleachers continues as Santana bowls Cash into chairs. Spears eggs Sammy on while Jericho and MJF run through the halls. MJF wants to talk this out but Jericho knocks him down! Jericho puts MJF in a trash bin and SMACKS him! MJF throws HOT COFFEE into Jericho’s face! Then SMACKS him with a landline phone! “Sorry, Chris can’t come to the phone right now, he’s too busy swallowing his own teeth!” MFJ DECKS Jericho, hangs up the phone, and claws Jericho’s eyes! “I’M THE GOAT NOW!!” Jericho gets away, and SHOUTS into a megaphone, right in MJF’s ears!

Jacksonville Jaguar fans cheer for seeing Charlie Strong and Urban Meyer. Jericho’s given a football, and he throws it at MJF! Then another one! Urban hands Jericho a spare laptop, and Jericho SMACKS MJF over and over with it! Hopefully that one wasn’t important. But then MJF rakes Jericho’s eyes!

MJF grabs a Jags helmet, but Jericho dodges! MJF whiffs, Jericho DECKS MJF! Jericho makes MJF take a seat, and wheels him into the other room, sending him flying into a table! Jericho wishes the Jags luck this season as he heads into that room. MFJ crawls and Jericho taunts him. Jericho gets MJF up but MJF punches the bad arm! MJF talks trash back but gets SMACKED by the rotating whiteboard! MJF crawls away again and Jericho tells him to run away like a bitch!

Apparently, Santana and Ortiz have followed FTR to one of the small clubs within Daily’s Place. They take bottles and SMASH them on the heads of the random guys getting in their way! FTR moves up, and they toss aside those getting in their way! They’re wrecking everyone that isn’t Pinnacle or Inner Circle, and then they sit at a table together? They have a toast, then DJ KONNAN plays a classic as the two top tier tag teams throw down! Dax and Ortiz, Santana and Cash, the brawl goes all over!

My Thoughts:

Another awesome AEW PPV, and especially for the first one with a full crowd at Daily’s Place. All of the matches were great, though I will say a few of them felt like the outcomes were obvious before. The NWA Women’s Championship was not going to change hands with it being on the Buy-In, and it not being AEW’s place to decide that stuff anyway. Likewise, the AEW Women’s Championship was of course changing hands because Shida made it to one year, she had her moment on Dynamite, though admittedly a short moment. My only gripe with that match was it perhaps had one too many false finishes. I haven’t really felt that way about a match before, but it started to get that way here, like with Rebel smacking Britt and she somehow surviving. Other than that, Britt of course deserves to be champion after all the hard work she’s put in.

Sting & Darby were of course going to win, it’s STIIIIIIING~! But the match was awesome, and I did appreciate that, after I had said something about it for an AEW Dark/Elevation, Ethan & Scorpio now have matching gear. Ethan & Scorpio are likely still top five in the tag division rankings, and they need to bide their time while the Bucks are still Heels. I will say the Bucks VS Moxley & Kingston was awesome stuff, and for a second felt like it could’ve been Moxley’s & Kingston’s, but it did create a strong character beat for the Bucks to win because they stopped cheating and just did their moves. I like the detail of Kaz getting involved, I wonder if things circle back where Kaz joins Mox & Kingston in an anti-Elite trio.

Cody VS Ogogo was about as expected, with the wrestler winning because this is wrestling, but him going the extra mile to be AEW’s Captain America or something is the same stuff that turned some people off to Cody a couple weeks ago. The Memorial Day message and honoring veterans is appreciated, but no more “USA VS World” as a motivation for story, please. Miro VS Archer was great, but I feel a bit of story got lost because it was part of some kind of fan fest segment that I suppose was part of the countdown special on Saturday. Even so, the match was great, Miro gets heat for throwing a bag that obviously wouldn’t have a real snake in it, and I am a bit surprised he retained. Archer hasn’t gotten much at all since joining AEW, so I thought this was that night. Maybe he’ll get another shot at All Out or Full Gear, since both were already advertised for when and where.

A little surprised the Casino Battle Royal didn’t go first, but Hangman VS Cage was an awesome opener. I don’t think Cage losing because of Team Taz distracting him weakens Hangman, but I am wondering if this really does help Hangman get to the world title by All Out. The rift within Team Taz is growing, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the moment Starks is healthy, he has it out with Cage. The Casino Battle Royal was good, but I felt like it went really fast. Lio Rush is a great wild card, though obviously a lot of people were expecting a lot of other possibilities. Rush showing up strengthens the AEW NJPW relationship, so everyone shut up about WWE and NJPW, that was about Daniel Bryan.

Jungle Boy winning was the right choice. He is young and supremely popular, and no offense to Christian, but he’d give any of the three in the world title match a much better match than Christian. However, Omega was another of the guaranteed winners of that Triple Threat, especially with Callis nearby. The heat on Callis was nuclear and Cassidy got one hell of a showing. Omega VS JB in a couple weeks makes sense, and then maybe we get Omega VS Cassidy 1v1 for a top level Dynamite on the way to All Out. Omega VS Hangman is still going to be my pick for All Out 2021, bringing both their relationship and Hangman’s personal AEW story full circle, but Cassidy has to get something at some point.

Stadium Stampede 2 was awesome stuff, just like last year. They said it wasn’t going to be as goofy as last year, but it was still plenty goofy with the repelling off the TIAA titantron, the theatrical chair room moment, PNP and FTR beating up Dark stars pretending to be bar goers, and so much of Jericho VS MJF. Hager and Wardlow was the most serious fight of the four, with PNP VS FTR a good second. It was cool to see Konnan and all these other cameos, tough. But in the end, it was clear the Inner Circle would win because Pinnacle stood tall, and fans really like the Inner Circle. They have good chemistry, and it’s not like them being together prevents them from going for gold. If anything, they should be even more focused on that, with PNP going for tag, Hager and/or Sammy going for TNT and of course Jericho going for the world title again.

My Score: 9.5/10

GUILLOTINE! Lee wrenches free to RAM shoulders! Lee wrenches, to ELBOW- NO, Kyle wrenches to ELBOW BREAKER! Hammerlock, GUILLOTINE HOVERBOARD COMBO!!!

Shane Taylor Promotion takes another loss on the night, but it was a hell of a fight against Kyle O’Reilly! But Kyle is going to face Malakai Black this Wednesday, will Dynamite be The End of Kyle’s comeback?

 

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. Robyn ducks the forearm, and the backhand, then clinches for a HALF NELNSON FACEBUSTER! Robyn fires up, she sits Deonna up, and runs to SHOTGUN her down! Cover, TWO! Robyn is frustrated, but she drags Deonna back up and bumps her off buckles. Robyn CHOPS Deonna, smirks, and winds up to CHOP again! Robyn says one more time, then puts some stank on it. But Deonna dodges to CHOP back! Deonna whips corner to corner, but Robyn reverses.

Robyn runs in, but Deonna puts her on the apron! Robyn ROCKS Deonna first, steps in, but Deonna ARM CODE BREAKERS! Robyn writhes, Deonna storms over, and Deonna drags Robyn up. Deonna knuckle locks, wrenches, then top wristlocks to wrangle Robyn. Deonna traps the arm for a SNAP LOCK! Cover, TWO! Robyn clutches the arm but Deonna is on her again. 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 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 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!

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 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.

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!

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.

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?

Trent is disappointed but Callis is pleased. Is Cassidy really going to end up turning to the dark side- er, Don Callis Family?

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!

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?

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
