AEW shares preshow interview footage.

Alex Marvez talks with Sammy Guevara as he arrives, but the PINNACLE attacks! Shawn Spears SMACKS Sammy with a chair, then looms over him. “Told ya I’d get ya. Compliments of MJF. Good luck next week.” Spears leaves Sammy down in the parking lot, will the Spanish God make sure Maxwell Jacob Friedman pays for this?


Hangman Page VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs!

The Anxious Millennial Cowboy is tuning out the fact that his former friend, Kenny Omega, is defending the title tonight. But as the current #2 contender, he’ll be up next no matter the main event’s result! Will that help Hangman or hurt him against Team Taz’s big bad behemoth?

The bell rings and the two get forehead to forehead already. Hangman and Hobbs circle, tie up, and Hobbs puts Hangman in a corner. The ref counts, Hobbs shoves Hangman as he lets off but the fans at Daily’s Place is rallying. Hangman ties up with Hobbs, headlocks, but Hobbs powers out and runs Hangman over! Things speed up, Hangman jumps but into Hobbs’ arms! Hobbs RAMS Hangman to a corner, RAMS his shoulder into him over and over, then lets off as the ref counts. Hangman dodges the forearm to fire off forearms of his own! And stomps a mudhole in! Fans fire up with Hangman, and Hangman gets Hobbs for a whip.

Hobbs blocks, whips back, but Hangman KICKS! Hangman runs and LARIATS, but Hobbs stays up! Hangman LARIATS again, and runs again, but Hobbs puts him on the apron. But Hangman aims, fakes Hobbs out, and Hobbs scowls as he walks around outside the ring. Hangman hops down and Hobbs talks trash. Hangman dodges the haymaker but not the BLINDSIDE LARIAT! Fans taunt Hobbs but Hobbs SLAMS Hangman’s arm against barriers! Hobbs undoes the AEW banner to throw it on Hangman and fire off body shots. Hobbs refreshes the count and wraps Hangman’s arm in the railing!

The ref reprimands, Hobbs lets off, but Hobbs KICKS the railing! The arm gets tweaked, Hobbs puts Hangman in a corner and fires off. Hangman hits back but Hobbs kicks low! Hobbs wraps the arm on ropes, the ref counts, and Hobbs CLUBS Hangman as he lets go! Hobbs brings Hangman up for a BIG suplex! Hobbs looms over Hangman, and hits a FALLING HEADBUTT! Fans rally for Hangman but Hobbs taunts them as he SLAMS Hangman’s arm on the mat! Hobbs goes to a corner, climbs up, and VADER BOMBS onto boots! Hobbs staggers, Hangman gets up and hurries over to climb up and rain down rights! Fans count but Hangman gets 3 before Hobbs shoves him away!

Hangman lands on his feet, comes back, but Hobbs POSTS Him! Fans boo at Hobbs while cheering Hangman on but Hobbs goes out to stalk Hangman. Hobbs drags Hangman up, bumps him off the apron, and then YANKS Hangman into the post! Fans jeer, Hobbs YANKS Hangman into the post again! Hangman blocks the third attempt and YANKS Hobbs, but Hobbs doesn’t budge! Hangman tumbles, Hobbs refreshes the count, but Hangman POSTS Hobbs in return! Fans rally up as a ring count climbs! Hangman is in at 5 of 10, Hobbs sits up at 6. Hobbs drags himself up while Hangman has a bloody cut on the back of his head! Hobbs is in at 8, Hangman runs over to BOOT him!

Hobbs flounders about, Hangman BOOTS him again! Fans fire up with Hangman while Hobbs still staggers. Hangman runs in again to BOOT a third time! Hobbs still isn’t done?! Hobbs gets mad, even! But Hangman dumps Hobbs out, and TRIANGLE JUMP LARIATS Hobbs to the floor! Hangman PLANCHAS Hobbs down! Fans are fired up again as Hangman gets Hobbs up and into the ring. Hangman gets to the apron, climbs up the corner, and MOONSAULTS! Direct hit and a cover, TWO! Hobbs survives but fans rally up behind Hangman. Hangman waistlocks, Hobbs elbows but Hangman keeps trying.

Hobbs elbows free, whips Hangman in, but misses in the corner! Hangman runs but into Hobbs’ CLOBBERING clothesline! Fans chant, “You Still Suck!” at Hobbs but he stomps Hangman. Hobbs gets Hangman up, tells fans, “So does your mama!” and then scoops for a SLAM! Hobbs goes back to the corner, climbs back up, and FALLING FLOPS! Hangman avoids the headbutt this time and he fires up! Hangman LARIATS Hobbs right off his feet! Cover, TWO!! Hobbs survives and Hangman is frustrated. Hangman grits his teeth, has Hobbs up and reels him in for an Alabama, but Hobbs CLUBS him! Hobbs shoves and BOOTS Hangman, then runs to CLOBBER Hangman! Cover, TWO!!

Hangman survives and Hobbs can’t believe it! But here come Ricky Starks and Hook! Wait, how do they have the FTW Championship? Brian Cage comes out, grabs Starks and rips his jacket off! Starks runs away, claiming he’s still really hurt! Cage has the belt back, Hobbs turns around, BUCKSHO- SPINEBUSTER?! Cover, TWO!?!? Hobbs is furious and so is Taz on commentary! Hobbs slams Hangman’s arms on the mat, then scoops him! Hangman slips out to ROLLING ELBOW! Hobbs ROCKS Hangman back! Hobbs runs, Hangman ducks the body check! Hangman waistlocks, for a DEAD LIFT GERMAN! And the Alabama to the DEAD EYE!! Cover, Hangman wins!!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

Taz hates to admit that this was a slobber knocker, as JR says. There are too many problems in Team Taz, how are they going to settle it? But this big win keeps Hangman strong in the running, will he be waiting on the other side of tonight’s main event?


AEW stars talk about the coming world title match.

Jungle Boy thinks back to Double or Nothing, 5/30/21, “As soon as the music hit, to hear that roar immediately, it just felt like this was gonna be okay.” JB won the Casino Battle Royal and earned his shot. Excalibur says that Kenny Omega, these last few months, “has become increasingly unhinged.” No one knows how much Omega has deteriorated, but Excalibur feels JB has a very good chance walking out the new champion. “The last time we were on a Saturday, Mr. Brodie Lee shocked the world and became TNT Champion. Jungle Boy, he might be Mr. Saturday Night.” That will have to be seen to be believed! Can JB do it?


The Young Bucks and Brandon Cutler speak.

Matt Jackson says, “Greetings and salutations! Look who it is! It’s the Young Bucks! Y’know, the tag team that all the trolls and haters call overrated.” That doesn’t make sense since they’re longest reigning AEW Tag Team Champions in comedy history. That’s right, over 230- Shut up, Brandon. Nick lets Matt continue. What’s made this run even more special and different is the aggression they bring out of their opponents. The Bucks don’t just beat you, they hurt you. Give ’em the list! Yeah, SCU- Shut up, Brandon! They took out SCU. SCU L8R. Jon Moxley. The Bucks’ kids are way cuter than his baby. Rey Fenix. Sorry, amigo. Pac! That poor bastard.

It feels SO good taking out these pricks! Who’s next? Next week! Penta and Eddie Kingston face them, and if they somehow win, they get a title shot at these! But that ain’t happening! Kingston & Penta aren’t a real team! They’re just two singles guys who got thrown together and they said, “Oh look! A team!” Like taking table scraps and trying to pass it off like a gourmet meal! Nick will keep that, Brandon had a good idea. And they know why the Bucks are so certain, right? It’s simple: They’re EVP’s! Extremely Violent People. Maybe Kingston & Penta will be next on the list. BAWK BAWK! See you then!


Tony Schiavone and Tully Blanchard are in the ring.

A legend in wrestling, the manager of FTR and The Pinnacle, one of the Four Horsemen, is here! And Schiavone is honored to welcome a lucha libre legend, the one and only KONNAN! Konnan makes his way out to the ring, stares Tully down right away, and Schiavone has things stay peaceful as a “gentlemen’s discussion.” Tully says the last time he saw Konnan, he was trying to interfere in a situation in a bar room. But because of his legend status, Tully says it is his pleasure to let Konnan go first. Oh, so we’re playing games already? Konnan heard Tully imposes his will on people, but he won’t be intimidated.

Neither will Proud ‘n’ Powerful, Santana & Ortiz. They’ve been stabbed, shot, kidnapped, strangled and left for dead. They’re still here, because that’s how they’re built. Konnan tells Tully that FTR tried to say they had the same upbringing. They’re from North Carolina, “where men are men and the sheep are scared,” but Konnan explains this: It’s not the same thing tipping cows and getting into bar fights and barn fights, and all that vegan beef you have out there in the woods, as it is surviving the streets of New York, enduring racial profiling while gang members hunt you down every day, with men of color are incarcerated at five times the rate as their White brethren.

Now Tully is a mentor to FTR. Konnan is a father to Santana & Ortiz. Tully wants his turn but Konnan says hold on, he hasn’t heard it all yet. When Santana so elaborately put it that he lost his biological father, Santana went to Konnan. Konnan was that missing ingredient like arroz con pollo. That’s Spanish, so learn it, Tully, because one day, you’re gonna have to learn to communicate with your grandkids, wink wink. Tully knows very much about Spanish, and very much about Konnan cuz he did his research. As great a star as Konnan was, he obviously doesn’t know who he’s dealing with.

Tully has news for Konnan: FTR will be out here and Konnan will be flat! That’ll be all Konnan ever did! One time on AEW Dynamite, one big moment, and then it was over with because FTR ended the game. Well then let Konnan say one more thing: when this is all said and done, Tully will be happy to know Walmart is still hiring greeters. And also, remember that PNP are like scarecrows: outstanding in their field. 5150, hasta la muerte! And since Konnan figured Tully would have his guys, Konnan has his guys! C’mon out, boys! Santana & Ortiz makes their entrances first, but Tully says, “I’ll tell you what.” He knew a bit about Konnan, and so look at the big screen!

PNP are already down and out backstage?! The two that came out were FTR IN DISGUISE! They attack Konnan! Tully tells them to finish this, and they get Konnan up for the MIND BREAKER!! NOW WHAT, BIG BOY!? Tully and FTR mock Konnan and the Inner Circle, and mockingly pray for forgiveness. Fans boo as The Pinnacle gets the upper hand on The Inner Circle again tonight, will there be a much more violent response?


Matt Sydal w/ Mike Sydal VS Dante Martin!

A rematch from Dark classic on YouTube, surely this high-flying, physics defying showdown will be dynamite! But while the third eye guided Sydal to a win then, will Angel Dorado flip more than just the script on him?

“EXCUSE ME!!” Oh no, Vickie Guerrero is managing Top Flight now?! She knows the fans were waiting to see this match but she is here to introduce to us the future of AEW, Andrade El Idolo! Oh, well, alright. Andrade struts his way out to the ring, and Vickie says they have a HUGE announcement to make. But Vickie’s cut off by the Sydal Brothers making their entrance. Vickie keeps Andrade calm, and they let their announcement wait for later. Matt Sydal gets in the ring with Dante and the bell rings!

Sydal and Dante get face to face, circle around and then tie up. Sydal waistlocks, headlocks, shifts to a hammerlock, then to a facelock. Dante slips out to get a facelock of his own, but Sydal wrenches and wrenches. Dante headlocks to a takeover, but Sydal fights up. Sydal has the arm, wrenches again but again Dante headlocks. Sydal shifts to a wristlock to arm-drag out, then he wrenches again. Sydal steps through, snapmares but Dante handsprings to flying-mare! Sydal gets up, Dante hurdles as things speed up, low-rope springboard dropkick! Dante covers, TWO! Dante gets Sydal to another headlock takeover, but Sydal works on a headscissor.

Sydal fights up, powers out but Dante leaps to headscissor! Dante runs in, Sydal puts him on the apron but Dante ducks the haymaker to give a haymaker! Dante jumps back in but into the WHEEL KICK! Cover, TWO! Sydal keeps his cool as fans rally for “Top Flight!” Sydal KICKS a leg, Dante gets to a corner, Sydal KICKS him again! Sydal drops knees on the knee, then does it again. Dante kicks Sydal but Sydal comes back with a STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Sydal keeps on Dante, brings him up but Dante throws body shots. Dante ROCKS Sydal, then catches him for a spin and scoop, INVERTED SIDEWALK SLAM! BASEMENT DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Dante keeps cool as he paces about. Sydal sits up, Dante brings him up to put in a corner for forearms. Dante whips corner to corner, Sydal reverses and back elbows! Sydal whips corner to corner now and follows up with a clothesline! Sydal goes corner to corner to SLIDING KNEE! Dante flounders, Sydal gets the legs and hooks them up for a Bow ‘n’ Arrow! Dante endures being bent back, reaches and fights, and gets free. Sydal keeps hold of the leg to SMASH the knee!

Dante clutches his leg while Sydal grits his teeth. Sydal gets Dante up, reels him in, cobra clutch Russian Leg Sweep! To the Cobra Clutch Stretch! Inverted Half Crab! Dante fights with his good arm and elbows Sydal away! Sydal goes to a corner, Dante runs in but Sydal BOOTS him down! Dante flops out of the ring, Sydal goes out after and fans fire up! But Dante rolls back, headstand to headscissors! Mike checks on Matt as AEW goes back to single picture. Dante crawls away while Mike coaches Matt up. Matt drags himself up and into the ring, as does Dante. Fans rally, Matt gets the legs for a figure four, modified Deathlock! Dante crawls back and gets the ropebreak!

Sydal lets go, firers himself up and gets Dante up. Dante throws body shots, Sydal CHOPS and CHOPS, but Dante blocks a kick to CHOP back! Dante KICKS away on Sydal’s leg, blocks another kick and pops Sydal up to a fireman’s carry and DEATH VALLEY BOMB! Cover, TWO! Sydal survives but fans rally and duel. Dante goes to a corner, Sydal runs in but Dante slips out to the apron. Dante ROCKS then GAMANGIRIS Sydal! Dante jumps and jumps, TRIANGLE QUEBRADA! Cover, TWO!! Sydal narrowly escapes and bails out while Dante catches his breath. “This is Awesome!” as both men are on opposite ends of the same corner. Dante climbs, Sydal climbs, they start brawling!

Dante CLUBS Sydal, adjusts position, but Sydal fights him off! BACK HAND sends Dante down! Sydal adjusts, METEORA SMASHER! Cover, TWO!?!? Dante survives and Sydal can’t believe it! Fans rally up again, Dante crawls and Sydal runs in, but Dante ducks the kick! Dante swings, misses, but comes back with a HIGH sunset flip! TWO!! Dante hurries to his feet, and TIGHT SPIRAL STUNNERS!! Cover, TWO!?! Sydal still survives and Dante is beside himself! Dante climbs a corner, but has to leap over Sydal! The leg jams, Sydal ROUNDHOUSES! LIGHTNING SPIRAL!! Cover, Sydal wins!

Winner: Matt Sydal, by pinfall

That was definitely a level up from their first showdown, but it was still Sydal’s victory! But is this still a sign of the bright future Dante has?


Jungle Boy speaks.

“I’m gonna go ahead and say that tonight feels like maybe the biggest night of my entire life.” Before he can elaborate, Christian Cage walks over to say it IS going to be the biggest night of JB’s life. JB asks if Christian’s alright, given the issues with Matt Hardy. Yeah, Matt will be around, but tonight is JB’s night. Is he happy? Yeah, but nervous, too. Understandable. JB shouldn’t be happy yet, he should be pissed. There are those who think JB doesn’t deserve to be in this position, and that includes Kenny Omega. Everything JB’s done, every sacrifice and accomplishment, has led him here. Kenny’s saying the things he’s been saying because he sees JB as a threat.

Christian tells JB that he already “shocked the world” once by winning the Casino Battle Royal. Now it’s time to shock them again by winning the world title! JB thanks Christian for those words, but will they help him overcome The Cleaner and his conniving crew?


Mark Sterling and Jade Cargill speak.

“The monetization of the marketing multiverse is rolling on with #JadeBrand.” This week finally got them an agreement with AEW Shop and a 10% off deal on both of Jade’s merch shirts. Use the code, “THATB” and don’t ever say she never did anything for you. You could get something like this Dark Order shirt for full price, but why would you want trash like this? Mark can’t rip the shirt so Jade takes care of it for him. And Mark is just now learning that they’ve sold “a ton,” and almost completely out of the XXL, which makes a lot of sense because they’re wrestling fans. But if you buy one of the two shirts, you can look like the star that she is.

Jade corrects Mark there: She is one of a kind, and undefeated. No one looks like her, because she is THAT BITCH. Will Jade rip through the competition just like she did that shirt?


Alex Marvez interviews The Pinnacle.

Specifically, he is here with MJF, Wardlow and Shawn Spears. MJF interrupts, mockingly saying he didn’t realize fans tuned in to listen to Marvez. Oh wait they don’t! They tune in for him. “Thanks, pig vomit.” But hey everybody! There’s a part of MJF deep down, aka pinkie toe, that knows the fans are upset over his attack to Chris Jericho’s already damaged elbow. There’s also part of him that sees why they’re a smidgen upset that his good friend, The Chair Man, bashed Sammy with that chair. That was great, though! High-ten. But the one thing MJF can’t wrap even his beautiful brain around is why we’re upset over what MJF did to Dean Malenko.

Allow MJF to be honest since we can’t be honest: Dean is so old, when he was a kid, rainbows were in black ‘n’ white. That’s northwards of 60, with a bad heart and Parkinson’s. Now do fans really think someone in that state should even be involved in an industry as dangerous as pro-wrestling? Fans throw rocks when they should be throwing flowers and thanks. MJF gave Malenko what he deserves: an early retirement. You’re welcome, Dean. But here comes the Inner Circle! Jericho and Jake Hager, the only ones left, fight The Pinnacle 3v2 and things spill further backstage! MJF throws what he can but Jericho hits him back with a trash can!

Things start going towards gorilla and fans fire up as Hager brawls with Wardlow AND Spears on the stage! Then to the ring! Jericho hurries after them, MJF scurrying around like the rat he is! Spears goes after Jericho but Jericho throws hands! MJF wraps a sleeper hold on but Jericho fights off! Spears goes after Hager while Jericho mugs MJF! Jericho DECKS Wardlow! MJF knees low and throws hands again but Jericho keeps going. Wardlow stomps Hager, but then helps MJF mug Jericho! Fans boo, MJF boasts while Wardlow and Spears keep going. MJF digs his boots into Jericho, then gets the bad arm! Spears brings in a chair!

But here comes Sammy Guevara! He wasn’t beat up as bad as Pinnacle hoped! GAMANGIRI to Wardlow, SPEARS to Spears! Wardlow drags Sammy up but gets a JUJMPING KNEE! And a CHAIRSHOT!! MJF steps up but runs away before Sammy can get him! Spears staggers up into a CHAIRSHOT! The Spanish God has gotten just some of his vengeance, but he gets a mic to shout at MJF! “Hey, a**hole, you messed with the wrong guy! On Wednesday, everybody finds out what I already know: That they chose the wrong guy!” The wrong guy for the action figures, for the posters. MJF loves to say he’s better than someone and you know it? Because he is!

Oh well guess what, b*tch, Sammy will show us why he is the BEST EVER and you know it! Will the Salt of the Earth lose his grit when Sammy grinds him into the dust?


Miro speaks.

“Before I get to Brian Pillman Jr, I want to thank God for keep making me powerful and my hot wife flexible.” Miro promises to use his power only on those who deserve it. People who try to prevent him from helping a woman in need, or people who try to attack him for no reason. People like BPJ. “Brian, you may be ranked number one in the tag team division, but you’re about to find out that standing between a righteous man and his path is like standing between a cleaver and its meat.” BPJ did not respect his champion, and they’re going to talk about that next Wednesday on Dynamite, 1v1.

“You are going to find out why I am the redeemer, why I am God’s Favorite Champion!” Go ahead and lie to the world and say you’re not afraid. But we know that the bravest thing BPJ has ever done is thinking about attacking Miro. The stupidest thing was actually doing it. Will the Best Man prove why he’s the worst person to face in the ring?


Ethan Page w/ Scorpio Sky VS Bear Bronson w/ Bear Boulder!

All Ego is feeling good after he and the Face of the Revolution won a 2v1 that Darby Allin still almost won. But with Bear Country reunited, will Bronson maul Ethan to drop the Men of the Year down to one man?

The bell rings and Ethan circles with Bronson. Fans rally up, Ethan and Bronson tie up, and are in a deadlock. Bronson powers Ethan back to a corner, the ref counts, and Bronson lets off. Ethan gets a cheap shot in! But Bronson just scowls at Ethan. Bronson puts Ethan back in the corner for furious fists! The fans fire up but the ref counts, and Bronson lets off at 4. Bronson whips Ethan to ropes and CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Ethan sits up in a daze, Bronson brings him up but Ethan stomps Bronson’s foot! Ethan kicks low, mocks the bear claws, then pie faces Bronson. Ethan runs but into a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Bronson keeps his cool while Ethan goes to an apron,

Bronson has Ethan and bumps him off buckles, then brings him back the other way to bump him again! Bronson stands Ethan up and fans want that “One More Time!” and Bronson hits Ethan off more buckles! Ethan staggers, Bronson DECKS him! Bronson builds speed, but Scorpio gets Ethan out of the way to take the BEAR TOPE! The ref reprimands Scorpio for that but he’s already paying for it. Ethan staggers up and avoids Bronson, but Boulder is right there! Ethan shouts to the ref that Boulder touched him! The ref keeps Boulder back, but Bronson grabs Ethan! Scorpio CLOBBERS Bronson from behind!! The Men of the Year whip Bronson hard into railing!

Fans boo but Ethan and Scorpio get away with things! Ethan grins as he stalks up to Bronson and rains down rights. The ref reprimands, Ethan lets off to soak up the heat, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Ethan drags Bronson up and bumps him off the apron. Ethan puts Bronson in the ring, stomps him down, and then wraps on a rear bearhug! Bronson endures, Ethan squeezes tighter, but Boulder rallies the fans and coaches Bronson up. Bronson fights free with elbows and both men slowly rise. Ethan kicks a leg out, then stomps Bronson again. Ethan drags Bronson back up for a facelock, and he taunts the fans before he hits a DDT! Cover, TWO! Bronson survives but Ethan keeps his cool. Ethan drags Bronson up but Bronson throws body shots and haymakers! Ethan wobbles, Bronson whips him to a corner then runs in, but Ethan boots him! Bronson just gets mad again!

Ethan dodges Bronson in the corner and ROUNDHOUSES! Ethan runs, rams Bronson with a shoulder, then runs to run Bronson over! Ethan shakes out the arm but gets up to soak up more heat. Ethan mocks the fans booing him and blows them a kiss. Bronson slowly rises as AEW returns to single picture. Ethan reels Bronson in but Bronson back drops free! Bronson gets to a corner as fans rally up, and Ethan hurries over. Bronson throws haymakers and counter punches! Bronson backs Ethan down with forearms, then whips him to a corner! Bronson runs in to SPLASH, and then fires up with the fans! Bronson stands Ethan up to point-blank BOXING LARIATS!

Bronson shoves Ethan to pop-up SPINEBUSTER! Fans fire up with Bronson again as he runs to BACK SENTON FLOP! Ethan avoids Bronson, gets him up and goes for another bomb, but Bronson back drops and SITS on Ethan! Cover, TWO!! Ethan survives being squashed but fans rally up for “Bear Country!” Bronson hurries to a corner, climbs up, but Ethan ROCKS him first! Ethan climbs, CLUBS Bronson on the back, then gets Bronson up for a SUPERPLEX!! Cover, TWO!! Ethan can’t believe it, but he hurries to get Bronson up. Bronson RAMS Ethan, Ethan BOOTS him away, then Ethan runs, into a SCRAPBUSTER! Cover, TWO!!

Bronson can’t believe Ethan lives! But he drags Ethan to a drop zone and heads up top again! Fans rally but Scorpio distracts! Boulder yanks Scorpio down to fire off hands! But Ethan LOW BLOWS Bronson! The ref misses that, but doesn’t miss the EXTRA LARGE EGOS EDGE!! Cover, Ethan wins!!

Winner: Ethan Page, by pinfall

The Men of the Year watch each other’s backs and that gave All Ego the edge over Bear Bronson! Scorpio says, “That’s my guy!” Ethan takes the mic to say, “I’m not stupid.” Fans chant, “Yes You Are!” Ethan says no he’s not. Because he knows for a fact that Darby Allin isn’t done with him. And to be honest, pinning Darby is not enough for him, either! Ethan’s said week after week after week that HE is going to be the nail in Darby’s coffin! Ethan will be the nail in Darby’s coffin! So why not just put Darby in one? July 7th, Road Rager in Miami, Ethan VS Darby… IN A COFFIN MATCH!! What a deadly way to start AEW’s red hot summer! Will the Relentless One find a way to survive?


Britt Baker talks with Reba/Rebel.

What are some of the things they’d love to ask for? A new car! A yacht! A football team! Maybe a million other things if Tony Khan owed them a favor. But no, Vickie Guerrero goes and asks for a wrestling match! She’s senile already, isn’t she? And Britt’s checked but there’s no insurance that can cover the amount of damage she and Rebel are going to do to her! And Britt already said she’s the face of a whole new era, and that new era has no time for fun ‘n’ games, and certainly not old ladies who think they belong in the ring. Britt doesn’t care who Vickie is, “and excuse me in advance for beating your ass next Wednesday in our tag team match.”

But don’t worry, Britt will send Vickie home with a nice prescription, signed Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. But aren’t they forgetting who is in that match with Vickie? Speaking of which…

Vickie and Nyla Rose respond!

“Britt and Reba, our tag team match is just the appetizer to solidify that Nyla Rose is the #1 contender for the AEW Women’s Title.” At Fyter Fest Night 2, July 21, they’re coming for the title. So be ready! And as for next week, Britt is locked in with the Beast, but you gotta watch out for the claws of the Cougar! Will the Vicious Vixens get a taste for Britt Baker blood before battling for the belt?


Kris Statlander w/ Orange Cassidy VS The Bunny w/ The Blade!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien is ready to boop the snoots of everyone in her way on the road to the women’s world title! But she’s walking down a dark alley and could end up Down the Rabbit Hole! Will Kris be careful against this rabid Bunny in the ring with her?

The bell rings and Bunny stares Kris down before they circle. They tie up, go around, Kris waistlocks and SLAMS Bunny. Bunny gets up in a huff but Blade tells her it’s alright. Bunny circles with Kris again, they tie up and Kris waistlocks. Bunny pries the hold, gets under and trips Kris to walk all over her. Bunny says Kris ain’t gonna boop her! Kris gets up and arm-drags Bunny around! And again! Kris scoops, Bunny slips out and SLAPS Kris! Kris PELES Bunny back! Bunny staggers, rebounds, but leaps into Kris’ arms and a SLAM! Kris gets Bunny up, brings her around and suplexes high and hard! Fans rally as Kris raises a finger! Kris puts Bunny in a corner, for the BOOP!

Kris ROCKS Bunny, hoists her up top and then climbs up to join her. Kris fires forearms, but Bunny slips under and tucks Kris in! Kris headstands, but Bunny SUPERKICKS her down! Kris tumbles to the floor, Bunny goes around the way and runs in to SHOTGUN Kris into railing! Bunny laughs while Blade shouts at Orange Cassidy that they’re nothing without Best Friends, Trent & Chuck! Bunny stomps Kris and CLAWS her as AEW goes picture in picture.

Bunny sneers at Cassidy, puts Kris in the ring, and stalks Kris to a cover. TWO, and Bunny is annoyed. Bunny stomps Kris, then isolates the hands to stomp the fingers! Kris crawls to ropes but Bunny is on her with a clinch and whip into a buckle! Kris flounders in the corner, Bunny frolics around, then runs in to SLIDING FOREARM! Bunny laughs right at the camera then pushes Kris to a cover. TWO, and Bunny is annoyed again. Bunny rains down fists on Kris, but lets off just as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Bunny KNEES Kris back down! Fans boo but Bunny keeps moving, to clothesline Kris out of the ring! Bunny grins again as she goes back out. Bunny runs in around the way again, into a SPINNING POWERSLAM! Blade is shocked while both women are down! Blade shouts at Cassidy to stay back but Cassidy is still at his corner. The ring count climbs, Kris sits up first and gets in at 5 of 10. Bunny stands up at 6, gets in at 7, and fans rally up as this continues in the ring. Kris and Bunny glare at each other and the haymakers start flying! Faster and faster, Kris gets the edge and fires off CHOPS! Kris fisherman BUSTERS! Cover, TWO!!

Bunny survives, Blade coaches her up, but Kris stands Bunny and gut wrenches. Bunny elbows that off, runs, but into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Bunny still lives and Blade is relieved! Kris drags Bunny to a drop zone, climbs up a corner, but Bunny gets up to SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX Kris off! And SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!! Bunny can’t believe Kris survives! Blade is pissed, he distracts the ref and sneaks Bunny her knuckle duster! But Cassidy gets those away from Bunny! And puts them in his pocket! Bunny is furious, but Kris gets her for the gut wrench! Tuck and BIG BANG THEORY!! Cover, Kris wins!!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

Freshly Squeezed made the save and Kris got the win fair and square! Cassidy doesn’t have a lot of energy to lift Kris’ hand in celebration, but then BLADE attacks! Cassidy is pissed and hits back but here come The Hybrid2! The Hardy Family Office’s newest thugs- er, members, mug Cassidy! TH2 sit Cassidy up for Blade to take the knuckles back! Blade puts them on, and CRACKS Cassidy across the jaw! TH2 let Cassidy drop and they stand over Cassidy with Blade. With Trent out for neck surgery, is there any chance the Best Friends will ever make the HFO pay?


Schiavone interviews QT Marshall backstage.

The Factory’s leader talks about last week where Brock Anderson beat them in his debut. How touching, Father’s Day weekend and all, and Brock giving daddy Arn a big hug. But it gets better! TNT votes Brock Anderson “Wrestler of the Week.” But a couple weeks ago, QT pins Cody Rhodes, but he gets nothing. Though, QT gets it, QT’s daddy isn’t the Enforcer. Schiavone moves things to the upcoming South Beach Strap Match at AEW Dynamite: Road Rager.

Yeah, that’s in a couple weeks, but let’s talk about tonight. Cody isn’t here doing the work like QT! Yes, Cody has Hollywood running around, so maybe someone casts Cody in one of those “geeky superhero movies” so we never have to see Cody again! Then and only then can QT achieve his dream of becoming champion in AEW! Will QT take out all his bitter frustrations out on the American Nightmare?


Brian Pillman Jr. speaks.

“The big bad bully of AEW, God’s Favorite Champion, Miro?” Well sounds to BPJ like Miro has a messiah complex. But Miro isn’t here to save anyone. Miro just picking fights with those he thinks he can beat to boost his own ego. BPJ has a complex, it’s called being born on the wrong side of the tracks and fighting for everything he’s ever had! That means fighting for his friends. Miro picked a fight with BPJ, and on Wednesday, BPJ will check that ego and take that TNT Championship! Will Bulletproof also be Miro proof and get himself some gold?


Eddie Kingston, Penta El Zero M and Alex Abrahantes speak.

“Matt ‘n’ Nick, are you serious? You’re gonna talk about taking people out?” Took out Fenix, took out Pac, took out Moxy. You guys aren’t built like that. You took them out in wrestling. You didn’t take them out IRL. Kingston’s done that! Y’all gonna challenge Kingston and his once again best friend and talk about taking people out? Kingston learned something about the Bucks. It doesn’t how hard they punch them or kick them or hurt them, the Bucks really care about their egos. Those tag team titles feed their egos. So the only way for these two to hurt the Bucks is to take the titles. And that means first taking them out. Let ’em know, best friend!

Penta speaks to the Bucks in Spanish, and Alex translates that “Young Bucks, you talk a lot about all those that you’ve run over. Well next week, we run over you!” CERO! MIEDO! Will the Bucks put their money where their mouths are? Or will they be too busy getting their teeth kicked in to do it?


AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS Jungle Boy w/ Jurassic Express!

The Cleaner may deny it up and down that he cheated to defeat two men in one match, Jungle Jack Perry outlasted twenty men fair and square! But now things are 1v1, and for all of Omega’s obnoxious behavior, all his bravado while picking fights and running away, he has to step toe to toe with Jurassic Express’ Tarzan boy! Will AEW enter the #JungleLife? Or does the Invisible Hand have yet another trick up his proverbial sleeve?

The introductions are made, the AEW belt is raised, and we see if JB can make a dent in Omega’s collection of gold!

Omega gets some last pointers from Callis and the Good Brothers but Marko Stunt tells them to back off. Marko gets fired up but the ref EJECTS Jurassic Express!? But then the ref EJECTS The Good Brothers! This is going to be truly 1v1 now! Fans taunt Anderson & Gallows with “Nana na na, hey hey hey! Good bye~!” Omega throws a fit while Callis joins commentary, but JB just shrugs it off. Fans fire up as JB and Omega circle, tie up, and go around. Omega puts JB in a corner, pulls some hair, but the ref counts. Omega smooths the hair out of JB’s pretty face, and then pats him on the shoulder. Fans rally and duel while JB shrugs off Omega’s mind games.

JB and Omega circle, tie up, and Omega pulls hair to get the wrench. Omega has the wristlock, slaps JB around, but JB handsprings and wrenches back! JB gets the wristlock and cranks. Omega grabs at the ref, the ref reprimands, and JB wrenches to WRING Omega out! Omega kips up to throw JB down by his hair! Omega soaks up the heat as JB gets to a corner. Omega throws haymakers in the corner, then CHOPS and CLUBS JB! And again! JB turns things around to CHOP and CHOP, but Omega pokes him in the eyes! Omega whips, JB boots him, and JB knuckle locks to CHOP! JB goes up and up and around, but Omega fireman’s carries! “You Can’t Escape!” But JB does!

Omega elbows JB away, JB comes back to go up and around and arm-drag Omega to then dropkick him! Omega bails out while JB kips up and the fans are fired up! JB builds speed but Omega ducks! JB knew that was coming, but Omega still trips JB up! Omega throws JB into railing, brings him around to throw into more railing, and then drags JB up to put him in the ring. Omega takes his time returning, brings JB up and throws him back out. Fans boo Omega as he stalks JB and AEW goes picture in picture.

Omega gets JB up to whip him, but JB slips through the corner! Omega hurries to find JB but JB SHOTGUN dropkicks Omega down! JB gets up, gets back in, but then comes back to SHOTGUN Omega again! Omega writhes against the railing but JB gets him up with a headlock. JB brings Omega over but Omega carries JB! BACK SUPLEX to the steel steps! Omega took some damage himself, but he gets JB back up to back suplex him into the crowd! JB is dumped in the front row and fans move aside. Some help JB up while Omega goes back to the ring. Fans rally for JB as the ring count climbs and JB drags himself back to ringside.

Omega paces as JB manages to get in the ring at 7 of 10, but Omega CLUBS JB down in the corner. Omega digs his boots in, the ref counts and Omega lets off at 4. Omega drags JB up, JB throws body shots, but Omega CLUBS him down! Omega hushes the crowd so they but not the home audience can hear the CHOP! Omega stands JB up to fireman’s carry, and now “YOU! CAN’T! ESCAPE!” Rolling senton to MOONSAULT FLOP! JB dodges, runs back in, BACK SENTON onto knees! Omega was ready! Omega gets JB up, scoops and BACKBREAKERS! Cover as AEW returns to single picture, TWO! JB survives and fans rally up again.

Omega gets JB up against the ropes and CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Omega whips JB to ropes, JB reverses to kick low! Omega blocks the suplex and throws body shots! Omega hooks a leg, but JB fights to an inside cradle! TWO!! JB dodges Omega, comes back to tilt-o-whirl to a SNAP BRAIN BUSTER!! Fans fire up, especially the Perry family watching nearby! Omega and JB rise, JB in a corner. Omega runs in but JB elbows him away! Fans sing Jungle Life as JB CHOPS and forearms Omega! JB whips, Omega reverses, but JB dropkicks a leg out! JB keeps moving, but Omega dodges, and ducks the rebound lariat! JB resists the full nelson to elbow Omega out of the ring!

Omega flounders around ringside, JB builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Omega hits railing! JB keeps moving, and DIVES again! Another direct hit! JB goes for the third but Omega grabs at the tights! JB kicks Omega away, keeps moving, but Omega returns to send JB out! JB lands on the apron, shoulders in and steps in, TORNADO DDT! Omega gets to the apron but JB FLIES!! Direct hit with the tope conjilo! Fans are fired up for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” as JB gets Omega up! JB puts Omega in the ring, climbs a corner, and “This is Awesome!” But Omega clips JB’s legs! And CHOPS him! And ROCKS him! Omega climbs up, gets JB up, but JB fights back!

Omega CLUBS JB, and again, and again! And headbutts! Omega stands up on the very top, stands JB up with the fisherman hook, SUPER AOI SHOUDOU!! Cover, TWO!! JB survives and shocks Omega! Omega turns shock into anger and says BANG! Omega runs, but JB dodges the V-Trigger to waistlock! Omega switches, GERMAN, but JB lands on his feet! Omega blocks the superkick, spins but JB SUPERKICKS after all! Omega comes back to V-TRIGGER! And SNAP DRAGON!! That was a low angle, for the V-TRIGGER AGAIN! Omega stands JB back up, Electric Chair lifts, but JB POISON-RANAS!!!

JB moves, builds speed, BLINDSIDE LARIAT! Cover, TWO!!! Omega survives but JB drags him back up. Callis is upset as JB wristlock ripcords, but Omega V-TRIGGERS first! Omega reels JB in, gets him up, POWERBOMB! Flip over and V-TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO!?! JB survives and Omega is losing his cool! Omega sits JB up, slaps him around, then takes aim again. V-NO! Drop toehold and a leg hook, SNARE TRAP!!! Omega freaks out but the Good Brothers come back! They’re violating the ringside ban, but so does Jurassic Express! Marko CLOBBERS Gallows then goes after Anderson! Wait, here comes #EliteHunter Frankie Kazarian!!

Kaz and Jurassic Express keep the Good Brothers away from the ring! Omega crawls over, ROPEBREAK! JB lets go reluctantly but he drags Omega back. Omega KICKS JB away! Omega gets up, throws a forearm on JB, but JB comes back with one of his own! Omega forearms again, but so does JB! JB gets the edge, runs, but Omega V-TRIGGERS!! Whip, REBOUND LARIAT from JB!! JB gets Omega up but Omega suplexes to BRAIN BUSTER! Return for earlier and Omega covers, TWO!!?! JB flounders to ropes but Omega takes aim again, for ANOTHER V-TRIGGER! Electric Chair lift, tuck, but JB sunset flips through! TWO!!?! INTO THE SNARE TRAP!!!

Omega endures all over again, reaches out, but he’s fading already! JB holds on tight, but Omega pulls hair and rakes eyes! JB lets go and the ref reprimands but Omega gets away. Callis says that’s what JB gets for having long hair, ignoring that Omega also has long hair. Omega gets to a corner, JB hurries over and kicks at him! JB hoists Omega up top, CHOPS him, and then climbs up to join him. JB stands, Omega ALLEY-OOPS him onto the buckles! Omega goes corner to corner, BLINDSIDE V-TRIGGER into the buckles! Double underhook, TIGER DRIVER 98!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Two and a half, maybe! Electric Chair, tuck, ONE WINGED ANGEL!! Cover, Omega wins!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)

Callis says this is why Omega is still the God of Pro-Wrestling! Callis’ biased opinion aside, JB got a lot closer than Omega would’ve ever given him credit for. But wait, is Omega waiting for JB to get back up? Omega’s aiming with that belt, but here comes Christian Cage! Captain Charisma brawls with Omega, DECKS him, then chases him out of the ring! But wait, the HFO has found Christian and they attack! Christian DECKS Kassidy, DECKS Quen, but Hardy DECKS Christian! Hardy wants Christian to get back up, then reels him in for a facelock! But no Twist of Fate! Christian turns Hardy, but the YOUNG BUCKS DOUBLE SUPERKICK Christian down!

The HFO and The Elite are standing tall over all their enemies! And now Hardy hits TWIST OF FATE on Captain Charisma! Private Party mocks Christian looking for the peeps while the Bucks and Omega stand over Jungle Boy. Is this going to be the natural order of things in AEW forever?

My Thoughts:

Another awesome episode! And it’ll be the last non-Wednesday Dynamite for some time so it really went out with a bang. We got great promos to set up the return to Wednesday, from the Bucks & Cutler calling out Kingston & Penta and vice-versa, to QT Marshall hyping up the strap match, to Sterling hyping up Jade’s merch, to Miro and BPJ calling the other out. Britt & Rebel had a very good one, with the smart detail of them ignoring Nyla because they assume they can beat Vickie that easy. Nyla & Vickie had a very good response promo, and I’m thinking Nyla gets the win off Rebel to hype up their title match, which is good to know that it’s going to be Fyter Fest Night 2.

Hangman VS Hobbs was a great opener, and naturally it helps advance the story of Brian Cage VS Ricky Starks at the same time. Hangman wins to stay strong as top contender, as has been his story lately. Hangman is surely on his way to a title match by All Out, as should be the case. And I sensed before that Cage VS Starks was going to be settled in a match for the FTW Championship, and Starks bringing that belt to ringside and trying to use it on Hangman was definitely the official foreshadowing in this story. Winner is champion and stays in Team Taz, loser is kicked out. For that reason, I feel like Team Taz actually chooses sides and helps Starks since Cage isn’t wanting to join in the Heel tactics anymore.

There was a lot of great stuff with The Pinnacle and Inner Circle tonight. Spears’ ambush “before” the show was a good way to set the tone for the rest. Tully and Konnan had a good face to face that of course wasn’t going to stay civil, and while I could tell it wasn’t PNP walking out, it was still a very well executed bait ‘n’ switch on that. This is definitely setting up Santana & Ortiz for the win over FTR in the continuing Best Of series. At the same time, we got a great brawl of the other faction members, but Inner Circle standing tall here makes me think Sammy loses to MJF so that Sammy can beat Spears and then Jericho beats MJF to top this off.

I like that Vickie and Andrade tried to interrupt a match with their announcement, only for it to fail. I feel like that immediately sets up Sydal Brothers VS El Idolo & his mystery partner, which is surely the announcement they’ve been wanting to give. Sydal VS Dante was another awesome match, following their first one on Dark a few weeks ago. Bear Bronson is very much the same, he and Ethan Page had a great match. But of course Ethan wins, he is staying strong so that he and Darby can have their blow-off. A Coffin/Casket match is definitely the perfect choice here, and I guarantee that Scorpio will try to help Ethan, cuing Sting to return and stop that. It might not sit well with Darby, but it’d be quite the shocker if we got Darby VS Sting after this.

Statlander had a very good match with The Bunny Allie, and there was good stuff with Blade and Cassidy getting involved. Statlander wins so she can stay strong in the top 5, but the HFO stands tall over Cassidy to further a rivalry with Best Friends & Friends. And after things with HFO and Christian after the main event, I think Best Friends are going to be allies with Christian to take on Hardy, Private Party & The Blade. And speaking of the main event, we got a good video package and good promo from JB and Christian to hype it up, but the main event speaks for itself. It was amazing stuff, made this episode feel as special as the coming July streak, and there was great “overbooking” with Jurassic Express and Kaz going after The Elite to keep things fair. Omega wins, of course, because he’s going to be the one Hangman takes on at All Out, that is just the way this story should go.

My Score: 9.3/10

Six Man Tag: Samoa Joe, Hook & Katsuyori Shibata VS The Premier Athletes w/ Mark Sterling!

Three dangerous men joined forces out of respect for what each of them can do, but they aren’t getting much respect from others. But will the Samoan Submission Specialist, The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil & The Wrestler beat some respect into Tony Nese, Ariya Daivari & Josh Woods? Or can the Premier Athletes actually put their money where their muscles are?

The trios sort out, Joe starts against Nese and the fans sing, “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” Nese says not tonight. Nese and Joe tie up, Nese waistlocks, but he can’t lift Joe! Joe smirks, wrenches free, and wristlocks. Nese rolls, wrenches and headlocks. Nese’s team cheers but they’re the only ones. Joe powers up and out, then he runs Nese over!

Nese tags Daivari and they mug Hook with haymakers! The fans boo but Nese lets off. Daivari brings Hook up, bumps him off buckles, then CHOPS! Daivari snapmares Hook, clamps on a full nelson and leans on the hold. The fans rally and Hook fights up, and he pries the hold open! But Daivari waistlocks! Hook elbows free, and hot tags to Shibata! Shibata storms in but he has to slow down as Daivari gets away to his corner.

Woods reaches out, so Daivari says here’s something for The Wrestler. Daivari tags Woods in, he steps to Shibata, and they fire forearms! The fans rally up as the shots keep going, then Shibata gets the edge! Woods trips Shibata, goes for an arm, but Shibata slips right around to go for the arm! Woods goes for Shibata’s arm, but Shibata goes after Woods again! Woods powers through to get the arm, but then Shibata slips around, changes sides, and has the ARMBAR! Woods scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as Shibata lets off and CLUBS away on Woods. Shibata cranks the arm for a double wristlock but Woods throws body shots!

Shibata leg scissors to trip Woods! KNEEBAR! Nese storms in to stomp Shibata! The fans boo, Woods tags Nese in. Nese stomps Shibata around, then taunts the fans. The fans boo but Nese CHOPS Shibata. Shibata doesn’t flinch! Nese CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Nese throat chops! Nese whips, Shibata reverses, but Nese ELBOWS back! Nese goes up and up and QUEBRADAS, but Shibata steps aside! Everyone’s learning from Joe now! The fans fire up and Joe smiles. Shibata then tags Joe in, and he stalks Nese. Nese rises up, into the JABS! JABS! JABS! Joe fires off fast hands, CHOPS Nese down, but Sterling gets on the apron!

Joe scares Sterling off, but this is all a delay tactic so Nese can crawl, and Woods can HOTSHOT Joe! The fans boo but Nese brings Joe around, BULLDOG HOTSHOT! Joe staggers, Daivari tags in! Nese & Daivari mug Joe, run, and DOUBLE SHOULDER TACKLE! Daivari covers, ONE!! Joe is still tougher than that! Woods tags in, he and Daivari mug Joe, and then Woods CLUBS away on Joe’s chest! Cover, ONE!! Joe is still tougher than that so now Daivari tags back in. Daivari and Woods mug Joe, then Daivari stands Joe up. Daivari throws hands, but Joe hits back! They go back and forth, Joe gets the edge, but Daivari CLAWS the eyes!

Daivari sucker punches Shibata down! Daivari whips, Joe reverses and sweeps the legs! SENTON! The fans fire up, hot tags to Hook and Nese! Hook rallies on Nese, wrenches and NORTHERN LIGHTS! Woods runs in but Hook KNEES him down! Nese gets up, but into the clinch! TAZ PLEX! The fans fire up and Hook stalks Nese, to give crossface forearms! Daivari runs up, Hook DECKS him! Woods gets in to GERMAN SUPLEX! Hook tumbles, but Shibata tags in! Shibata ROCKS Woods, BOOTS Nese, BOOTS Daivari, then STO for Woods! Shibata runs up at Nese for a BOOT!

Winners: Samoa Joe, Hook & Katsuyori Shibata, by submission

The Premier Athletes did prove they’ve got guts, but not enough to overcome this trio of warriors! Will Joe, Hook & Shibata find themselves on the road to trios gold?


The Bang Bang Gang speaks.

Juice Robinson says, “Apparently… AEW isn’t gonna recognize the fact that I was anointed one-quarter of the AEW Unified Trios Champions!” Austin says he’s pissed, Colten confirms that is true, and adds that apparently, The House of Black still gets their shot. At least, once Buddy’s leg gets better. And apparently, PAC cares!? He interrupted their match, he pushed Juice off the top, and then he flipped Austin off! But that’s good. Because their fearless leader, Jay White, is off training his butt off. You thought EIGHT abs was something? Jay will be coming back with TEN! SO Pac, you better hope you don’t see The Switchblade in the Owen Hart Cup!

Because then, The Bastard will do more than just “care” now. He’ll cry to sleep! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya! GUNS UP! Bullet Club Gold is taking aim at a lot of different targets, but will they be able to hit the mark?


Private Party VS Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Bryan Keith!

Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy have been busy this week. They got called out by The Learning Tree on Dynamite, they put in a fast and furious match last night on Rampage, and now they’ll be entering the “Jericho Vortex” when they take on Big Bill and the man himself. But will Quen & Zay teach Jericho something about not looking down on the younger guys? Or will Jericho ruin the fun #ForTheWorld?

The teams sort out and Jericho starts against Quen. The fans rally up and Jericho says here’s a free lesson from The Learning Tree. Then he tags out to The Redwood. Bill steps in, sporting new gear that quotes Tony Schiavone, on the butt… Bill and Quen tie up, Quen gets around and headlocks. Bill powers out and runs Quen right over! Because as the shorts say, “Too much man!” Bill mocks the “Shots! Shots! Shots!” then he stands Quen up. Bill CHOPS Quen, drags him up, then CHOPS him again! Bill keeps Quen in the corner, and he ROCKS him with a right. Then Bill TOSSES Quen across the way!

Bill mocks the dancing, runs corner to corner, and he SPLASHES Quen! Quen was practically smothered by that move! Quen falls over, but Bill stands him back up, and gives a thumbs up before he TOSSES Quen again! Quen writhes, goes to ropes, then the corner. Bill runs in again, but Quen dodges the splash! Bill staggers, Quen goes up, and Quen leaps to MISSILE DROPKICK! Bill staggers, Quen is on him in a corner! Quen rains down fists, Bill stops him at 6, then DECKS him! Jericho applauds, and Bill tags him in. The fans are torn as The Learning Tree waves, and Bill hoists Quen way up! Jericho “helps” SLAM Quen down!

Jericho & Bill wave, then Jericho stands Quen up to CHOP! Jericho CHOPS again, then whips corner to corner. Jericho runs up but Quen BOOTS him! Quen goes up and leaps to FLYING SHOULDER TACKLE! Then hot tag to Zay! The fans rally as Zay TACKLES Jericho and rains down fists! Jericho pushes him away but Zay comes back, another TACKLE and more fast hands! Jericho tries to get away but Zay fires off high and low and all around! Jericho CLAWS eyes! The fans boo but Jericho brings Zay up. Zay CHOPS, fires more forearms, then just more and more and more! Zay runs, but Jericho sends him out!

Quen is there, for SILLY STRING! Jericho tumbles, Zay covers, TWO!! Jericho survives, Quen tags in, and he TACKLES Jericho! Quen fires off hands just like Zay! Quen stomps Jericho around, runs, but Bad Apple Bryan Keith trips him! The fans boo, but then Jericho CLOBBERS Quen! Jericho waves to the fans, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Jericho takes his time waving to all sides of the arena, then he drags Quen up. Jericho hits a BIG back suplex, then has the cocky cover, ONE! Jericho perhaps returning the favor from last night there, but Jericho bumps Quen off buckles. Tag to Bill and Bill stomps away on Quen! Jericho adds on, the ref counts, and Bill digs his boots in. The ref counts more, Bill lets off with applause, and then Bryan CHOKES Quen! Bill SUCKER PUNCHES Kassidy! The ref reprimands but Bill goes back to Quen. Bill mocks the “Shots! Shots! Shots!” then CLUBS Quen on the back. Then SLAPS Quen down! Bill mocks the shots more, then mockingly cheers.

Bill drags Quen up, puts him on ropes, and RIPS his shirt open to CHOP him down! Quen sputters, Bill drags him up and tags in Jericho. They mug Quen in the corner, then Jericho brings Quen around. Quen fires hands first! Quen runs, but Jericho DROPKICKS him down! Jericho waves to the fans again, then he drags Quen up. Collision returns to single picture, Jericho bumps Quen off buckles, then Jericho puts Quen up top. Jericho CHOPS Quen, climbs, and wants his “branches” to fire up. The fans are torn, but Jericho has Quen on the very top, but Quen throws hands! Quen shoves Jericho down, and the fans rally up!

Quen adjusts, leaps, CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Jericho survives and Quen is frustrated. Quen and Jericho crawl, hot tag to Zay! Zay springboards to CROSSBODY! Zay keeps moving, he ducks ‘n’ dodges, then DROPKICKS! Bill storms in, but Zay DUMPS him out! Zay then triangle jumps to DROPKICK! That’s Jericho’s move! Zay then kicks and hits a STUNNER! Then a STUNNER for Bill! The fans fire up and Zay runs up to SUNSET BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives and shocks Zay! Bryan coaches Jericho, Zay tags Quen. Private Party mugs Jericho, then Quen whips Jericho to a corner. Quen runs up to SPLASH!

Quen brings Jericho around again, SOBAT and SOBAT! Quen runs, but Jericho THROAT CHOPS! Then LIONSAULTS! But onto knees! Quen holds Jericho, Zay uses him as a step to FLY onto Bill! Then Zay hurries back and goes up again! Quen sets Jericho up again, SWANTON BOMB! Quen climbs now, for the 450 SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives and Quen can’t believe it! Tag back to Zay, but Bill returns! The ref is busy with Bryan, too! Zay springboards, into a BOOT! The Redwood slips away, Bryan hops down, and Jericho covers Zay, TWO?!? Zay survives and the fans fire up!

Jericho huffs ‘n’ puffs, drags Zay up, but Zay is dead weight. Jericho KNEES Zay, then KNEES him again. Jericho says if Zay wants to be a threat, he has to fight. So Zay fires off fast hands and CHOSP! Zay whips, Jericho reverses, but Zay KICKS, then RAN- NO! Jericho turns Rana into WALLS OF JERICHO! Zay endures, even as Jericho sits deep! The fans fire up as Zay fights around! Zay reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! Zay lets go in frustration but also exhaustion, so he tags to Bill. Bill storms up but into a mule kick! Zay runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, but into the BOSS MAN SLAM!! Cover, TWO?!? Zay survives and Bill is frustrated.

Bill mocks the shots again, gives a thumbs up, then he drags Zay up. But Quen runs in! Bill choke grips Quen, to CHOKE SLAM him onto Zay! Cover, TWO?!?! Zay survives and Bill is surprised! Bill tags Jericho back in, and Jericho climbs. Bill gets Zay up and brings him over, CHOKE- NO, Zay slips free and shoves Bill into Jericho! Jericho lands on his sapling, then Quen DROPKICKS Billy into him! Private Party DOUBLE LARIAT Bill out! Then they get Jericho set up! GIN & JUICE!! CODE BREAKER STYLE!! Quen CLOBBERS Bill, Zay covers, TWO?!?!? Jericho survives and no one can believe it!

The ref defends his count was fair but Zay can’t believe that math. Jericho is up, Zay fires off forearms! “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Zay fires body “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” then runs to LARIAT! Zay is all fired up and the fans are with him! But Bill returns! Zay LION- NO, Bryan Keith CLOBBERS Zay!! The ref was busy with Bill, he missed that! Jericho drags Zay to a cover, Jericho’s team wins!

Winners: Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Consider this one a 3v2 Handicap Match, because the Bad Apple got involved. And he even goes after Zay now! Quen goes after Bryan, but Bill & Jericho go after Quen, but Samoa Joe’s team runs out there! Joe LOW BLOWS Bill! Shibata and Hook go after Jericho and Bryan, but Jericho gets outta there! The Learning Tree wants nothing to do with this! So Shibata isolates Bryan’s arm, and STOMPS it!! Jericho feels Bryan’s pain, emotionally speaking. Joe gets a mic to say, “HI~, CHRIS~!” But week after week, Jericho has “graced” us with his presence, but Joe and his associates here have been talking. And every idea that falls from Jericho’s tree “absolutely SUCKS!”

The fans cheer but Joe isn’t done. Joe tells Jericho that they come from very different schools of thought. And the best ideas survive the crucible of combat! So that is what Joe suggests! Joe, Hook & Shibata VS Jericho and what’s left of his tree, come Forbidden Door! Will Jericho, Bill & Bryan be able to regroup in the eight days they have? Or will they be turned into the lumber that builds the school of Samoa Joe?


BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

Though Will Ospreay and Swerve Strickland are Forbidden Door opponents, and hardly friends after how personal they’re making things, they must team together against The Gates of Agony! Will Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona crush the champions before they ever reach Long Island?


AEW Continental Championship Title Eliminator: Kazuchika Okada VS Ultimo Guerrero!

Christopher Daniels promised The Elite that they would face top tier competition for their titles, and he finally realized who would be best for The Rainmaker: the man who mentored him while on excursion in Mexico! Will Okada be able to stay undefeated in AEW when facing one of CMLL’s best? Or will Ultimo Guerrero show him that he still has a lot to learn?

The bell rings and Okada stares Ultimo down. The fans rally up, the two circle, and Ultimo offers a handshake. Okada slaps the hand away, he no longer cares about his former sensei. The two tie up, Ultimo waistlocks, then he SLAMS Okada down. Ultimo facelocks, Okada wrenches out but Ultimo rolls and trips Okada. Ultimo rolls Okada but Okada arm-drags free, and the two stand! The fans fire up as they reset and go again. Ultimo gets his side of the crowd going, but Okada has plenty of fans, too. The two speed things up, Okada drops but Ultimo runs him over! Ultimo whips, Okada ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Ultimo CHOPS!

Ultimo scoops, Okada slips free, but Ultimo LARIATS! Cover, TWO! The fans rally, Ultimo stands first and he brings Okada around. Ultimo puts Okada in a corner to CHOP! Okada sputters, but Ultimo CHOPS again! And CHOPS again! Okada drops to a knee, Ultimo brings him up to scoop, and SLAM! The fans fire up, Okada slowly rises, but Ultimo is on him again. Ultimo CHOPS, and CHOPS, then brings Okada around. Ultimo whips Okada to ropes, then LARIATS him down! Ultimo stalks Okada to a corner, KNEES low, then KNEES low again! The ref counts, Ultimo snapmares Okada down then clamps on a chinlock.

The fans rally, Okada endures and fights around, but Ultimo pushes him down to get a leg. STRETCH MUFFLER! Okada endures, reaches out, ROPEBREAK! The ref counts in Español, and Ultimo lets go at 4. Ultimo stomps Okada to the corner, lets off again, but Okada powers up to Alabama Lift! REVERSE NECK- NO, Ultimo fights it to an IRON OCTOPUS! Okada hurries to the ROPEBREAK, and Ultimo lets off again. Ultimo whips Okada to a corner, runs in, but Okada pops him up to the Alabama! REVERSE NECKBREAKER!

Backstage interview with Top Flight.

Lexy Nair is with Dante, Darius & Action, and she congratulates Dante for making it into the AEW TNT Championship Ladder Match. Now, they wanted this time so what’s on their mind? Dante says the last time he was in a ladder match, he broke his leg. A broken fibula, a dislocated ankle. It took a lot of hard work for Dante to make it back here. He had to relearn how to walk, how to run, how to jump, and how to be himself again. But now, he’s going back in to that environment. A lot of people are saying that’s crazy. But it’ll take a little bit of crazy to become the NEW TNT Champion, so boys, at Forbidden Door, he’ll get some gold to celebrate with.

Lio Rush walks in and he wants to talk about last week. Action says before that, he does want to congratulate Lio Rush on the win last night. Lio appreciates that. And he asks if Darius is cool. Darius nods so Lio takes that. Lio tells Dante that when it came to last week, Lio is a man of his word. He has Dante’s back. Always has, always will. But come Forbidden Door, Lio is in the match, too, and he wants the TNT Championship for himself. Dante says same for him. So then see you there. Darius says they’ll see who the better man is. Top Flight heads out, but will the Bad Child make sure he’s the Man of the Hour in New York?


Six Man Tag: The Patriarchy VS The Iron Savages!

While Christian Cage still wants to be AEW World Champion, he also wants his “sons,” Nick Wayne and Killswitch/Luchasaurus, to succeed, too. So they are going to go after the AEW World Trios Championships as a family, no matter who they have to go through. Killswitchasaurus took out Jacked Jameson, Dirty Bulk Bronson & Beefcake Boulder all by himself, so will it be even easier when Captain Charisma & The Prodigy Son are with him? Or will everyone be sippin’ sauce and livin’ hoss on Saturday night?

Before the match, Jameson has a mic. He tells Christian that he has been a focal point on the biggest shows in wrestling since most of us were little kids. Christian is one of the greatest of all time, and is now better than he’s ever been. However, ever since coming to AEW, Christian’s been acting more like “Low T Loser!” A couple weeks ago, Christian had Killswitch take them out for no reason! Then he’s got that little peeper, Nick Wayne, who looks like Timothée Chalamet but even wimpier! But they ain’t going to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory! They’re going to the milk farm in #TIDDYCITY!!

The fans are a little torn about that idea, but then The Patriarchy makes their entrance. But then Christian leaves?! No, he joins commentary! He’s leaving this all up to his “sons!” The teams sort out in this unofficial handicap match, and Luchasaurus starts against Bronson. The fans are on the dinosaur’s side, but Jameson says time to sip some sauce! Bronson grabs the cup and he CHUGS it! Bronson is all fired up, runs up on Luchasaurus, but Luchasaurus HEADBUTTS him down! Nick wants in, so Luchasaurus tags. Nick swaggers around, toys with Bronson, then taunts Jameson. Nick eggs Bronson on, kicks him around, then KICKS Bronson ont he back!

Nick flexes but Bronson gets up! Bronson is literally twice as big as Nick! Bronson back suplexes, Nick lands out! Nick kicks and runs, but into a back drop! Christian coaches Nick from 30 feet away at the desk but Bronson says it is time for TIDDY! CITY~! Bronson sends Nick right into Boulder’s beefy chest! Nick sputters, Luchasaurus tags in! He CLOBBERS Bronson, BLASTS Boulder & Jameson, then TOSESS Bronson toa  corner! Luchasaurus fires off fast hands, whips corner to corner, then runs up to BOOT Bronson down! Christian says this is the most elite big man in the business. Boulder storms up, he grabs Luchasaurus!

Luchasaurus ELBOWS Boulder, SHOVES him up and out, but Jameson grabs Luchasaurus by the hair! Christian says that’s cheating! Well, he would know… Jameson CLUBS Luchasaurus, goes up, but Luchasaurus garbs him first! To THROW him down onto Boulder! Nick gets in, he gets a boost from Luchasaurus, SUPER PLANCHA onto the Savages! Christian says they are the next Trios Champions and it is not up for debate. Luchasaurus waits on Bronson, Bronson slowly staggers to his feet, and into the choke grip! But Bronson CLUBS at the arm! Bronson breaks free, fires hands over and over, then LARIATS!

Christian is upset but Luchasaurus stays up! Bronson LARIAT, then DISCUS LARIATS! Luchasaurus drops to a knee, Bronson fires back up, “I’M GONNA BUST~!” Bronson runs, but into the choke grip! JURASSIC CHOKE SLAM! And then Nick wants back in! Christian says to do it, so Luchasaurus tags. Luchasaurus gets Bronson up, Christian says now his boys need his help. WAYNE’S WORLD! Christian goes to ringside, and Nick gladly tags his “father” in. Christian then has his “sons” get Bronson up, and he says THEY are the next Trios Champions! KILLSWITCH for Bronson! Cover, Patriarchy wins!

Winners: The Patriarchy, by pinfall

Christian tops it off after his “sons” do the heavy lifting, but a win is a win. Will nothing stop The Patriarchy as they look to reign over AEW together?


Mercedes Mone visited Arena Mexico.

And she told Stephanie Vaquer this is why she’s the CEO. She flew all the way to Mexico just ot make a point. Mone said hola, and then stared Vaquer down. Mone knows Vaquer is NJPW Strong Women’s Champion for now, but that title is hers come Forbidden Door. But then Vaquer told Mone, “You’re in my house now, b*tch! And we speak Spanish here!” So Mone used the internationally understood SLAP ACROSS THE FACE! The fight was on, and Mone snatched both belts! Will Mone prove she is The CEO of the entire world? Or will she find out why Vaquer is La Primera?


Toni Storm & Mariah May w/ Luther VS Lady Frost & Leyla Hirsch!

Luther rallies the fans while Mariah endures the REAR BEARHUG!

Mariah reaches out while Leyla leans on her. Mariah fights up, reaches for Storm, but Leyla brings her away. Mariah fights with elbows, then runs, but Leyla reels her in! Mariah switches, Leyla switches, but Mariah wrenches to a SAIDO! Mariah and Leyla crawl, hot tag to Storm! Storm rallies on Leyla, BLASTS Frost, and Collision returns to single picture! Storm dodges Leyla, blocks the boots, and DRAPING BACKSTABBERS! The fans fire up and Storm stands Leyla up, for a FISHERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Not quite perfect but Storm stands Leyla up again. Storm reels Leyla in, but Leyla back drops!

The mentor and protege embrace as they come out victorious! But with Mina Shirakawa trying to wedge herself between them, will this story have a tragic ending?


Serena Deeb speaks.

“Leading up to Double or Nothing, I was 6-0. Physically, I was unbeatable. Mentally, I was untouchable, unbreakable. And subsequently, I’ve had three of the toughest losses of my career, to some of the best women in this company. And I know how this goes. Sometimes you’re on the up, sometimes you’re on the down. But when you’re on the down, you gotta stop it in its tracks and you gotta lift yourself back up. If there’s anything that my wrestling career has shown, it’s perseverance, it’s redemption, it’s grit. So next week, I will be in Buffalo at Collision, and I am begging anybody to step into my ring, to step into Deeb’s Dojo!

“Because, baby, I’m on the up. And from here, I’m gonna remind everybody, and I’m gonna remind myself, just who the hell I am: The Professor of Professional Wrestling.” Who will accept Deeb’s “pop quiz” next week on Collision?


Malakai Black & Brody King VS Leon & Max St. Giovanni!

The Bang Bang Gang mocked the misfortune of this malevolent faction, and they are looking to take their anger out on whatever poor souls AEW have found for them. Will LSG & MSG soon RIP at the feet of The Kings of the Black Throne?

The teams sort out, MSG starts against Malakai. They circle, MSG is wary of Brody, but he ties up with Malakai. MSG wrenches, wristlocks, but Malakai rolls, wrenches and cording holds.

The fans bark as Brody CLOBBERS MSG!

Malakai blocks MSG’s superkick to KICK the other leg. Brody and Malakai FOREARM KNEE SMASH COMBO! LSG runs up, but into a POP-UP KNEE COMBO! Then DANTE’S INFERNO!! Cover, The House wins!

Winners: Malakai Black & Brody King, by pinfall

The brothers St. Giovanni could not withstand the wrath of the Dark Father and the King of Death, who still have fury burning in their eyes. But as they head up the ramp, Ian Riccaboni is there to interview them. He congratulates them on the win tonight, but he must ask: How does it feel after what happened to Buddy last week? Malakai chuckles, and says what a “human” question. Brody tells Ian that revenge is never a straight line. They feel nothing. Does that mean Buddy doesn’t matter? Or are Malakai & Brody just waiting until the right time to strike?


Hechicero w/ The Gates of Agony VS Matthew Menard!

The Alchemist of Lucha Libre warned MJF that at Forbidden Door, he’s going to break off one of MJF’s arms! Will Hechicero use Menard as an example of that? Or will Hechicero have a hard time handling some Daddy Magic?

The bell rings and Menard dodges Hechi to fire off fast hands! Menard whips Hechi to then CLOBBER him! The fans fire up with Menard as he keeps on Hechi, with a LARIAT! “What you got!?” The fans cheer, Menard whips, but Hechi gets under the leap frog to DUMP Menard down!

Winner: Hechicero, by submission

The Gates of Agony storm in to celebrate with Hechi, will the Alchemist of Lucha turn the Wolf of Wrestling into a lap dog? Or will MJF prove that he’s better than even Hechicero, and he knows it?


Jeff Jarrett speaks.

“When I was asked officially about being in the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament, all the emotion came back. It’s hard for me to imagine it’s been 25 years, but there are so many things that I remember like it was yesterday. In the late 90s, we would become Tag Team Champions, and I kinda look back on those days as the favorite days of my career. His passing in 1999, May 23rd, on the Monday the following day, I made a promise to myself that I would be able to look Oje & Athena in their eyes, and it really meant something. They were little kids when it happened, but to let them know what a great man their father is. I never, ever met anybody like him.”

Jarrett looks back, and he’s since become a 12-time world champion, a two-time Hall of Famer. The Owen Cup means more to him than anything he’s ever done. Toby Keith passed away earlier this year, another good buddy. And as the song says, he ain’t as good as he once was, but he’s as good once as he ever was. To get the opportunity to win three matches, then stand in the ring in Owen’s hometown of Calgary, Jarrett is absolutely gonna do it. The Last Outlaw must still wait and see what “wild card” is dealt, but will he make it through no matter what?


AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS Brian Cage!

The Aerial Assassin wants to be the #TwoBeltBruv by taking Swerve’s AEW World Championship, but he also has to defend the belt he has.

Ospreay staggers, Cage CHOPS him, but the fans rally for the “BRUV! BRUV! BRUV!” Cage whips, Ospreay ducks ‘n’ dodges and RAN- NO, Cage stops that and TOSSES Ospreay! Then he scoops to do bicep curls, before the FALL AWAY SLAM! Cage flexes but fans boo.

Ospreay grits his teeth as he stands up, and Cage runs in. Ospreay DUMPS Cage out, ROCKS him, then ROCKS him again. Cage shoves Ospreay but Ospreay comes back to BOOT!

Ospreay falls back, Cage dusts himself off, and then Cage asks, “Who betta?!” Cage looms over Ospreay, gives him clubbing crossface forearms from both sides, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Cage has Ospreay in a BEARHUG! Ospreay endures, the fans rally, and Ospreay throws elbows! Ospreay BELL CLAPS and Cage lets him go! Cage still knees low, CLUBS Ospreay, then shouts, “Who betta than Cage, huh?!” Cage runs but into the TIGER WALL KICK and ENZIGIRI! Cage staggers to a corner and the fans fire back up! Daniel Garcia is watching, as he still wants a shot at the International Championship. Ospreay runs corner to corner to BOOT Cage! Ospreay pushes Cage out, goes to the apron and springboards in, PIP PIP CHEERIO! Cover, TWO! Ospreay is annoyed but he just brings Cage up.

Ospreay reels Cage in but Cage resists the lift. The fans rally as Ospreay fires Kawada Kicks! And then winds up to CHOP! Ospreay reels Cage in again, but Cage back drops free!

Winner: Will Ospreay, by pinfall (still AEW International Champion)

The Machine proved he can get his stuff in, and that he can take one of the best to the limit, but that is where Cage hits his limit! Ospreay is rolling into Dynamite next week, where he will have no choice but to team with The Realest to take on some common enemies. Will Will Ospreay & Swerve Strickland make it through The Gates of Agony? Or will neither of them make it to The Forbidden Door?

My Thoughts:

A great Collision, though stocked full of more action than I expected. Thankfully, it was less talky than usual, and what promos we got were fairly efficient. Well, I feel like there was a touch of redundancy to Lio interacting with Top Flight when we got that moment on Rampage. I guess AEW is worried not enough people are watching Rampage. Deeb sending out an Open Challenge for the Collision go-home next week was good, I’m sure we’ll get a great match of her and a visiting CMLL or Stardom talent. And after Jarrett’s very moving promo, I actually want to see him make it to the finals. I don’t see him winning the whole thing with Pac AND Bryan Danielson on the other side of the bracket, but for the sake of honoring Owen Hart’s memory, Jarrett at least has to get past the wild card.

Storm & Mariah VS Leyla & Frost was a good tune-up match for the Six Woman Tag set for Dynamite, but as such, The Outcasts likely win. As I said on Wednesday, if Mariah is going to beat Saraya in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup, she’ll have to lose out on Dynamite because that’s how the math works. Hechicero of course beat Daddy Magic, but that’s because MJF is going to win at Forbidden Door. And then of course The House of Black beat the St. Giovanni brothers. Their dismissive nature towards the interview was an interesting one, but I would think they will get their revenge on The Patriarchy soon enough.

Good promo from The Bang Bang Gang that helped feed into the various stories. The Patriarchy of course beat The Iron Savages, but Christian avoided doing work in an even more obnoxious way than I expected. I still think Pac should work with Malakai & Brody in an attempt to get revenge on The Bang Bang Gang together, but I guess that depends on if Pac goes to the Owen Hart Cup finals or not. Oddly, I’d love if The Bang Bang Gang did face The Patriarchy for some rare Heels VS Heels shenanigans. Christian will try to cheat at the same time Bang Bang Gang tries to cheat so it comes down to who can cheat better.

Though going by the other tag matches, the Joe-Hook-Shibata trio is a great team, and they naturally made quick work of The Premier Athletes. Then they logically went after Jericho’s group after that great match with Private Party. Jericho likely will still owe Hook an FTW Championship match, but it’d also be great if Joe-Hook-Shibata got their shot at the trios titles. We’d get some awesome promos between them and the Bang Bang Gang, as well as some fresh showdowns. And really good match of Okada and Ultimo Guerrero. It was a little sluggish, but I suppose between Ultimo and Okada needing to get a rhythm, and Ultimo being 52, it was still very solid stuff. But Okada winning was fine, it leaves him available for a different match-up for Forbidden Door weekend.

And just an awesome International Championship match for the main event. I did not think Cage was going to get as much offense in as he did, but I appreciate that they let him. Cage needs to be seen as a threat on some level so pushing Ospreay like this was a good way to do it. But of course Ospreay wins, because they’re continuing to tease Garcia VS Ospreay.

My Score: 8.9/10

Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy know The Learning Tree, Chris Jericho, will be watching this match, given what’s already on tap for Collision tomorrow night. But will Quen & Zay be more than ready to enter the “Jericho Vortex?” Or will the Commander of the Skies and the King of the Ropes make the fiesta take a siesta?

Somehow, the two sides are pulled apart, but they’re headed for a Collision! Will Private Party teach The Learning Tree not to look down on them?


AEW takes a closer look at Ultimo Guerrero.

Excalibur narrates that as “one of the fiercest luchadores Mexico’s ever produced, Ultimo Guerrero is among the most highly decorated athletes to compete in CMLL’s 90 year history.” A SIX-TIME CMLL World Tag Team Champion, a FIVE-TIME CMLL World Trios Champion, and a TWO-TIME CMLL World Heavyweight Champion, Ultimo Guerrero now has his eyes set on Kazuchika Okada and the AEW Continental Championship. Ultimo was Okada’s mentor while on excursion in Mexico, and has watched The Rainmaker’s rise ever since. Will Okada withstand the challenge of his former mentor? Or will Ultimo have a golden ticket in time for the Forbidden Door?


Rey Fenix w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Turbo Floyd w/ Truth Magnum!

The Immortal Firebird will be in the Men’s Owen Hart Tournament this year, preparing to battle The Switchblade, Jay White next Wednesday. However, he does need to stay hot, so will he be all warmed up after tonight? Or will this Outrunner look to be more than just a tune-up?

The bell rings and the fans rally up behind Fenix. Fenix and Turbo circle, tie up, and then Turbo shoves Fenix. Fenix runs up, they RAM shoulders, but Turbo flexes as he stays standing. So Fenix CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS again! Fenix BODY BLOWS, fires up, then runs, only for Turbo to run him over! Turbo runs to drop the BIG elbow! Cover, ONE!!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall

Well, that was certainly fast! Maybe Fenix should be called “Turbo.” Penta & Abrahantes celebrate with Fenix, will there be #CeroMiedo in the Owen Hart Cup? Or will Jay White force even Fenix to Breathe With The Switchblade?


AEW TNT Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Lio Rush VS Action Andretti!

Turns out that The Bad Child and the Sight to See have known each other a long time, but friendship only goes so far when there’s gold on the line. Will Lio make sure he’s the Man of the Hour tonight? Or will Andretti get in on the action in Long Island?

The bell rings and the fans rally up as the two circle. The fans are on Lio’s side but Action doesn’t sweat it. They shake hands to show there is sportsmanship, then things speed up!

Action torture racks Lio, pops him up, but Lio arm-drags free! Lio then bobs ‘n’ weaves, fires off fast hands and ROCKS Action! Lio runs, but Action is up, SPANISH FLY! Cover, TWO!! Lio survives and Action grows frustrated again. The fans rally, Action considers his options. Action puts Lio in the drop zone, goes up and up and SPLIT- NO, Lio dodges the moonsault, roll up and SPIN KICK! The fans fire up and Lio says it’s time!

Lio runs to springboard, RUSH HOUR! Action falls back, Lio hurries up top! FINAL HOUR!! Cover, Lio wins!

Winner: Lio Rush, by pinfall (advances to Forbidden Door)

And with that, Lio is headed for Long Island! Will Lio make sure it’s his time in that TNT Championship Ladder Match? Top Flight heads out here to check on Action, but then they stonewall Lio. Lio pushes past them to help his old pal to his feet. The fans cheer the sportsmanship, and Lio offers a handshake. Action looks to his teammates, but he still shakes Lio’s hand. Lio offers, he gets more a low-five out of Darius, but a full handshake from Dante. Dante and Lio will both be in that ladder match, will friendship again be out the window when only one man can be the Face of TNT?


Shingo Takagi VS AR Fox!

Speaking of the Forbidden Door, NJPW’s Rampaging Dragon is going to show up in Long Island for a fight with the American Dragon, Bryan Danielson! Not only that, but that match will be part of the Men’s Owen Hart Cup tournament! Will Takagi prove it’s his time, no matter where he wrestles? Or will he have a hard time with the Whole Fox’n Show?

Fox put up a fight but Takagi is a former IWGP World Heavyweight Champion for a reason. But wait, here comes Bryan Danielson! Fairfax chants “YES! YES! YES!” as Bryan applauds for Takagi. Dragon meets dragon, and we only have 9 days until these two have it out. Bryan offers a handshake, the fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” so Takagi nods and SLAPS the hand away. The fans boo but Takagi pushes past Bryan to take his leave. Takagi says it’s still his time, but will he have to prove it in Long Island? Or will Bryan kick Takagi right back out the Forbidden Door as he moves forward in the Owen Hart Cup?


2024 Women’s Owen Hart Cup Quarterfinal: Willow Nightingale VS Serena Deeb!

The Babe with the Power won the entire tournament last year, and even won titles between then and now, but she’s also lost between then and now. However, there’s motivation beyond repeating as the Queen of Harts here, because former friend Kris Statlander is waiting in the semifinals for the winner of this match. Will Willow pass the Professor of Pro-Wrestling’s test to take on The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor? Or will there be no mercy in Deeb’s Dojo?

The bell rings, Willow offers a handshake, and Deeb accepts. The fans cheer the sportsmanship, then they rally up for “DEEB! DEEB! DEEB!” as the hometown hero. Deeb nods, but Willow brushes that off. The two tie up, Willow wrenches an arm, then wristlocks. Deeb rolls forward, rolls back, reaches over and wrenches to wristlock Willow. The fans duel now as the Willow fans fire up. Willow feels her way through the wristlock to then get around and waistlock. Willow SLAMS Deeb down, holds on, but Deeb moves around. Deeb pops the hold open to hammerlock then headlock, then spin and hammerlock again.

Deeb hits another headlock, another spin, and another headlock. Deeb keeps the pattern going to disorient Willow, but Willow powers out. They RAM shoulders, and Willow says, “Ooh~, okay.” Deeb runs, RAMS Willow, but Willow still doesn’t budge. Deeb runs again but Willow follows to then run Deeb over! The fans are torn but Willow scoops and SLAMS! Willow runs then SPLASHES! Cover, TWO! Willow keeps cool and she brings Deeb up to suplex. Willow holds Deeb up, then SLAMS her down! The fans fire up more and Willow goes up a corner. Deeb stands, but she avoids the missile dropkick!

Deeb grabs a leg, turns Willow over, HALF CRAB! But Willow gets the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Deeb lets go, and Willow goes to the apron. Deeb storms up but Willow ROCKS her first! Willow steps in but Deeb gets the leg! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Deeb runs to BLAST Willow down! Deeb then hurries out to get Willow up, TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT to the floor! The fans fire up for Deeb while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Deeb drags Willow up, puts her in the ring, then drags Willow up for another TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Willow stays in this but Deeb drags her back up. Deeb ripcords to ELBOW, then wrenches the arm to wrap Willow up in the IRON OCTOPUS! Willow endures, marches her way forward, but Deeb bends the fingers! Willow still endures, still fights her way over, and her free arm gets the ROPEBREAK! Deeb lets go, Willow goes to a corner, and Deeb storms over. Deeb wrenches and whips, but Willow reverses! Willow runs up, blocks a boot, but Deeb reels her in to KICK! Deeb goes to the apron, brings Willow into the ropes, and HOTSHOT NECKBREAKERS!

Deeb writhes, Willow hobbles to a corner, but Deeb hurries up. Deeb whips, but Willow cartwheels and ENZIGIRIS!

Both women are down, but Deeb shakes out her arms. Willow crawls her way to ropes, Deeb stands, and Rampage returns to single picture. Willow runs Deeb over, then runs her over again! And again! Willow is fired up and the fans are with her now as she runs to back body block in a corner! Willow clotheslines, snapmares, BOOTS, and then fires up! The fans cheer as Willow whips and SPINEBUSTERS! High stack, TWO! Deeb survives and Willow is frustrated, but Willow gets Deeb up. Willow whips, Deeb KICKS back! Deeb wrenches, hooks Willow up again, IRON OCTOPUS! But Willow powers out, right into an AIR RAID CRASH!

The fans fire up, Willow gets Deeb up and gut wrenches, but Deeb grabs a leg! Deeb CLUBS that leg, trips Willow, and turns her into the HALF CRAB! Willow endures, even as Deeb sits deep! The fans duel, Willow crawls, then runs over. Willow kicks and kicks and kicks free, then brings Deeb around! Fireman’s carry, but Deeb fights free! Deeb wants the full nelson but Willow elbows free!

“This is Awesome!” as Willow ROCKS Deeb first! Willow climbs, CLUBS Deeb, then brings her to the very top! SUPERPLEX! And a stiff one! Both women are down but the fans are all fired up! A standing count starts as both women stir. Willow rises at 5 of 10, and she finds Deeb. Willow stands Deeb up to ROCK her! Deeb UPPERCUTS back! Willow CHOPS, Deeb CHOPS, repeat!

Cover, Willow wins!

Winner: Willow Nightingale, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

Willow passes the Professor’s test, and now she’s not only one step closer to repeat Owen Hart Cup finals, she’s going to get her grudge match with Kris Statlander! Will Willow also get her revenge? Or will Kris add to the list of things she’s done to ruin Willow’s life?

My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage, and they’re really stuffing these episodes lately. For one, two good tune-up matches. Fenix of course beats Turbo Floyd easy, and we get a great match out of Takagi VS Fox. But again, of course Takagi won so he has momentum, and I figured Bryan would show up. Bryan will surely have his own great tune-up match as part of a Forbidden Door go-home episode, and then we’ll get an awesome match out of Bryan VS Takagi in the Owen Hart Cup. Great opening tag match from Private Party with Metalik & Komander, and while Metalik & Komander are great, Private Party gets the momentum going into their match tomorrow night on Collision.

As such, of course Jericho and team show up, but the brawl was a bit of a surprise. Chances are that means Jericho & Bill win with help from “Bad Apple” Bryan Keith. Great TNT Championship qualifier from Lio and Action, and I like this tension they’ve kept between Lio and Top Flight. Given how AEW handles contracts and departures, there really never was closure behind Lio leaving AEW for NJPW, and then that means there was no explanation why Lio left Dante high and dry and that has to be the kayfabe by default, but at least they’re making up for it now. Lio and Dante interacting will be a great part of the ladder match in itself, but I’m still leaning towards Jack Perry winning the title.

And great main event from Willow and Deeb. Deeb is great, she deserves something, but sadly there are a lot of other great wrestlers in the AEW Women’s Division. And with story taking precedence, of course Willow won here. Willow VS Kris will be great, and could go either way. However, also because of story, Mariah May is surely going to win this tournament so she can take on Toni Storm for the Women’s World Championship. Plus, Kris and Willow can feud through the summer, escalating things to something really wild to then give the winner of that momentum going towards the world title, perhaps in time for All Out.

My Score: 8.8/10
