The Young Bucks w/ The Elite VS PAC & Penta El Zero M!

Matt & Nick Jackson held onto the AEW World Tag Team Championships with some help from their friends, but there ain’t no rest for the wicked! Before tonight, the Bucks attacked Rey Fenix, trying to screw over Death Triangle in advance! Will the Bastard and Cero Miedo not only earn themselves a title shot, but avenge the fallen Firebird?

Before the match, Matt bestows his weird cozy headband to Michael “MT” Nakazawa, but then FRANKIE KAZARIAN attacks! The Heavy Metal Rebel continues his vow to destroy the Elite one man at a time, and he’s going after Nakazawa! The barriers topple over, the Good Brothers rush over but Kaz gets away! The Bucks are furious but the match is waiting! The Bucks go to the apron, Death Triangle BOOT them down! And then DOUBLE FLY! Fans fire up as Penta CHOPS Matt and Pac whips Nick into the stage wall! Matt reaches out for help and Brandon Cutler tries to help Nick while Don Callis runs to commentary.

Nick hits Pac back, Matt uses his own jacket to hit Penta, and the Bucks reel the Death Triangle in. They want double bombs but get double back drops instead! Penta POSTS Matt, Pac brings Matt around and puts him in the ring. Matt clubs away on Pac, the bell finally rings, and Matt throws haymakers. Pac DECKS Matt with one!

Pac BOOTS Matt in a corner and puts him in the drop zone! Pac climbs, but Matt bails out. Pac hops down and storms after Matt, but Matt uses Cutler as a shield. Pac shoves Cutler away, and gets around Matt for a back suplex! But Matt lands on his feet, and Nick PENALTY KICKS Pac from the apron!

Nick runs and DECKS Penta off the corner while Matt soaks up the heat. Nick gets Pac up and holds him in place as Matt powers up. Matt builds speed, but slides out to go around the way, and he LARIATS Pac down! The fans boo as the Bucks are hamming it up. Matt goes back to the ring, Nick puts Pac in for him, and Cutler polishes Matt’s boots to keep them nice and shiny. But Matt turns around into Pac’s LARIAT! Nick gets in again to hit Penta down again! And then cartwheel MOONSAULT! Nick taunts Pac, shoulders in and slingshots, into a BOOT! But Matt SPEARS Pac down! Matt rains down fists, then fires up as he paces around.

Matt drops knees on Pac’s head, then paces around more. Matt mocks the fans for their chanting, then gets Pac up to bump him off buckles. Tag to Nick, the Bucks double whip Pac into the corner, but Pac dodges the corner splash! And then the next splash! And then he sidesteps Nick for a SNAP GERMAN! Nick is in a daze as he sits back up and fans fire up for Pac! Hot tag to Penta! Penta SLINGBLADES Matt! SLINGBLADE for Nick! Penta hits a CODE BREAKER SENTON COMBO on both Bucks! Fans fire up with “CERO! MIEDO!” But Nick is after the mask! Nick whips, Penta goes up and over and BACKSTABBERS!

Penta drags Nick  up but Nick JAWBREAKERS! Matt tags in, but Penta catches him for the pump handle DRIVER! Cover, Nick breaks it again! Pac tags in and he has Matt for a back kick, front kick, and another back kick! Pac runs, but Matt ROCKS him! Matt runs, into a POP-UP SIT-OUT BOMB!! Cover, TWO!! Matt survives but Pac tags Penta back in. Death Triangle set Matt up for WAZZUP! The double stomps to Matt’s bucks! Pac intercepts Nick as Penta covers but Nick pushes through to break things up again! Pac throws Nick back out, then whips Penta. Matt BOOTS Penta, then BOOTS Pac, and Nick tags in, springboard into DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! Is this a Superkick Fiesta?

Penta has Nick, Pac goes to a corner! “CERO! MIEDO!” But Nick slips out and Pac has to jump over! Pac and Nick switch again and again, Pac elbows Nick then sets up as a step!

Fans are thunderous as Nick and Penta meet in the ring! Nick throws haymakers, Penta CHOPS! Nick punches, Penta KICKS! Penta Cero Miedo pie faces, runs, but Nick uses the ref as the shield! The ref gets knocked down, Nick kicks and tears off Penta’s mask! Wait, he had a second mask on underneath! Nick freaks out as Penta LOW BLOWS him!! FEAR FACTOR!! Tag to Pac, BLACK ARROW!! Cover, Matt breaks it in time!! Pac and Penta are furious, but Pac goes up top again. Matt distracts the ref with talk of neck pain, and Cutler CLOBBERS Pac with his camera! Nick gets Pac in a high stack, the Bucks win!!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Penta wants to point out a shoulder came up, but the Bucks attack him and Pac! Matt claws at Penta’s mask to rip it, and then the Bucks sit him up, but here comes EDDIE KINGSTON! Jon Moxley may be sidelined because of the BTE Trigger, but he isn’t about to let the Bucks do this to another friend! The Bucks and Cutler scurry away and Callis says Kingston is scary. The Bucks are right to fear the Mad King and Death Triangle, will each and every one of them get revenge on The Elite?

 

AEW returns and Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

We’re just two months away from AEW Rampage, Friday, August 13th! And as debuted at Double or Nothing, one of the analysts for that show will be the WORLD’S STRONGEST MAN, Mark Henry! Fans cheer as Henry makes his way out to the ring and shakes Schiavone’s hand as he gets a mic. He will be one of the commentators for Rampage, and he thanks Schiavone for this moment. Everyone knows Henry loves this business, and he isn’t here to “fix” AEW. “AEW is not broken.” What Henry is here to turn the screws. Then the question we all want to know is: Will Henry get back in the ring again?

Henry says that right now, he won’t say yes, but he’s got a lot left in the tank. But wait, is that Vickie Guerrero shrieking her way out here? It is! And she is telling Schiavone and Henry to move on out of HER ring. They’re not one to argue with a lady, while Vickie is here to introduce a man who has won championships around the world and is a third generation wrestler. Fans boo her shrieking but she says to welcome EL IDOLO!! Wait, what?! ANDRADE!??! IN AEW?!?! We know he is set to face Kenny Omega in AAA for THE AAA Mega Championship, but Andrade is now All Elite! Fans finally cheer, and Andrade says gracias to Vickie.

Andrade knows he used to say, “I am the face of Latinos,” but today, he is saying, “I will be the new face of ALL! ELITE! WRESTLING!” Fans like the sound of that! Andrade shows off his suit, and Vickie tells the fans to cheer. They don’t need to be told, they cheer El Idolo’s arrival and departure. Will Andrade look to take gold from Kenny Omega and just about anyone else in AEW?

 

Cody Rhodes & Lee Johnson w/ Arn Anderson VS QT Marshall & Anthony Ogogo w/ Aaron Solow!

The American Nightmare was the American Dream for Double or Nothing, and he defended his homeland with honor. But that doesn’t mean the war between Nightmare Family and QT’s Factory is over! Will Big Shotty help Cody beat The Gifted and Ogogo on this big fight Friday night? Or will being alongside The Factory’s leader tip the scales back in the Olympic boxer’s favor?

The teams sort out, Johnson starts with QT and QT pie faces right away. Johnson ROCKS QT, wrenches, YANKS the arm, and tags in Cody. Cody CLUBS the arm, wrenches and hits a wristlock. Tag to Johnson, they double whip QT and Cody drops so Johnson can dropkick QT! Cover, TWO! Johnson wrenches but QT throws him down by his hair! Tag to Ogogo, Ogogo doesn’t want Johnson, he wants Cody! Johnson gets up and Cody tags in. Fans fire up as they get to see Double or Nothing again. Cody and Ogogo circle, but Cody sees QT creeping in so Cody KNEES QT down! But Ogogo gets Cody for an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Cody staggers up, Ogogo throws hands and EuroUppers, then QT tags in.

QT and Ogogo mug Cody but Cody fights free! Cody hooks QT’s arm for a modified DDT! Fans rally, Cody tags Johnson! Big Shotty rallies on QT, swings and uppercuts, then a NECKBREAKER! Johnson kips up and fires up and runs at QT, but QT throws him out! Johnson has the ropes, skins the cat and he headscissors QT out! Johnson finishes skinning, but QT avoids the plancha! Johnson avoids a clothesline but not Ogogo’s BOOT! Arn coaches Johnson but QT puts him in. QT drags Johnson up as fans rally, and QT CHOPS Johnson in the corner. Ogogo tags in and he stomps Johnson’s ribs as AEW goes picture in picture.

Ogogo bumps Johnson off buckles and stomps a mudhole into him! Ogogo digs his boots in, but lets off as the ref counts. Ogogo gets Johnson back up, throws uppercuts then back elbows. Ogogo chokes Johnson with a forearm in his neck, then ROCKS him as the ref counts. The ref reprimands, Ogogo just shrugs it off and goes back to Johnson. Ogogo whips Johnson corner to corner and runs in to clothesline! Ogogo keeps going, BASEMENT UPPERCUT! Cover, TWO! Ogogo keeps Johnson from Cody, bumps him off buckles, and tags in QT. QT gets Johnson up but Johnson throws hands! QT kicks low, reels Johnson in and hits a BIG suplex! Cover, TWO!

Cody and Arn rally for Johnson, but QT gets Johnson up and brings him around to knee Johnson’s leg! QT stomps Johnson, keeps between him and Cody, and Johnson grabs at ropes. Johnson gets up to ENZIGURI QT! QT stays standing, catches Johnson’s leap for a SWINGING BACKBREAKER to COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO! QT’s lethal combination didn’t finish this but he keeps on Johnson with a neck wrench. Johnson endures, fights up, throws body shots, but QT CLUBS him on the back. QT whips Johnson to ropes, but Johnson flapjack dropkicks him away! AEW returns to single picture as the fans fire up for Big Shotty!

Johnson crawls to the corner, hot tag to Cody! Cody sees QT on the outside and fires off hands! Cody THROWS QT into the ring! QT gets up, Cody hits a clothesline! And a suplex TOSS! QT flounders to a corner but Cody is right on him for a rain of fists! Cody gets all 10, hops down and goes corner to corner, to monkey flip! QT flounders around again, Cody kicks and hits the Rhodes Uppercut! But QT dodges the clothesline to back suplex. Cody lands on his feet and DISASTER KICKS Ogogo! Cody dodges QT for the SPINNING POWERSLAM! Fans are thunderous as Cody has QT all alone! Cody gets a leg, steps through, and has the FIGURE FOUR!

QT endures as Cody puts as much leverage as he can. But Ogogo throws Johnson into railing! And then gets in to FROG SPLASH onto Cody!! Ogogo risks his own ribs but he saves QT! QT gets up and stalks Cody, to reel him in for a DIAMOND CUTTER!! Cover, TWO?!?! And Johnson adds on with a SWANTON BOMB!! All three men are down but Ogogo returns! Johnson dodges, but Ogogo comes back to clothesline both Johnson and himself out! Cody and QT rise slowly, and they throw haymakers! Cody ROCKS QT but Aaron Solow distracts! Cody gets QT with the dragon sleeper, but Ogogo gets in with a KO PUNCH!! QT covers, The Factory wins!

Winners: The Factory, by pinfall

Solow celebrates with his team as Arn comes in to check on Cody. Ogogo’s the man with stone fists, and that shot to Cody’s jaw was definitely a lethal shot! QT gets a mic to say, “I shocked the world! I told you all I could do it!” Schiavone is speechless because he was never a believer in QT! QT shocked the world and now they’re stuck up there with stupid looks on their faces! But Nightmare Family VS The Factory isn’t done tonight! Will Nick Comoroto whoop Dustin Rhodes to complete a sweep on Dynamite? Or can the Natural avenge his brother to close out the show?

 

The Inner Circle heads to the ring!

Chris Jericho, Santana, Ortiz, Sammy Guevara and Jake Hager are back and still together after their emphatic victory over The Pinnacle! The fans sing Judas for them as they get mics, and Jericho revels in it. “Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you the 2021 Stadium Stampede Le Champeooons~, THE INNER CIRCLE!” And because they dig the fans so much, thank you so much for the support, everyone live in the audience is getting an Inner Circle Stadium Stampede shirt for free! Just look under your chairs! And this isn’t a prank, either! It’s real, and that’s a lot of shirts!

And now, Jericho introduces us to the reason why the Inner Circle is still together, it’s the hero of Stadium Stampede 2, SAMMY GUEVARA! Fans cheer Sammy on and he says, “I’m on such a high right now.” What a moment Double or Nothing was, ending with 630 onto “that idiot,” Shawn Spears. Sammy used to do the 630 off his mom’s roof in the backyard. He used to do that and mom would tell him, “Sam, get off the roof!” And he’d go, “Okay,” and then just do the 630 anyway. But to go from backyard to the main event of Double of Nothing to close the show, and keep his brothers together, that is a night he’ll never forget. Sammy thanks them all and says he loves them all.

The Inner Circle hug, and then Santana says that’s right about that was the greatest moment in their lives and careers. Like they discussed backstage, what did they do other than keep the crew together? They’ve still gotta pass by The Pinnacle in the hall. They’ve still gotta listen to The Pinnacle’s boasting and bragging about money and suits and limos. So the real accomplishment would be having them in a ditch somewhere on the I-95. But that’s just Santana being Santana. To keep it real, FTR tried to end their careers with those table piledrivers. FTR tried to take food out their families’ mouths. That doesn’t sit right with Santana. So know this: the Inner Circle VS Pinnacle war is FAR FROM OVER!

Jake Hager says, “They LIED to us! They double-crossed us! They tried to end us! Now, they don’t get to say when this is over.” The Pinnacle’s got no choice but to man up and take this ass whooping again, and again, and again, until The Inner Circle says they’re done. Got that, Wardlow? Hager’s pulling Wardlow’s man card first! Wardlow beat Hager once in an AEW ring, but now Hager wants Wardlow to step into an arena he’s never been beaten in: an MMA OCTAGON!! Fans like the sound of that! Hager wants it in two weeks, right here on Dynamite! Man up, Wardlow!

Jericho says the group’s making great points. This war is not over. When he thinks of Shawn Spears, it pisses Jericho off. When he thinks of Wardlow and that powerbomb through the stage that put Jericho out for a month, it pisses him off. But most of all, when he thinks of “that mealy mouthed, pretentious, self-righteous little PRICK, MJF, it pisses me off!!” Sammy feels the same. There’s unfinished business there, too. But the difference here is that MJF tried to end Jericho’s career, and even his life, when he shoved him off Blood & Guts’ cage. Jericho hasn’t been the same since, and he thinks about it every single day.

Jericho wakes up in a cold sweat about how close it was to the end for him. And Jericho realizes, he has to settle the score! So Jericho knows the Inner Circle embarrassed The Pinnacle with a Bubbly bath, but that wasn’t enough. Jericho knows he beat and humiliated MJF in the upper deck, but that wasn’t enough. Jericho says that until he can ruin MJF’s career and life the way he tried to do to Jericho, this will never be over, do you understand him!?

MJF calls Jericho The GOAT, the Greatest of All Time. Jericho isn’t sure if he believes that about himself, but he does believe this: “When I think of MJF saying what he said, if I’m as good as he thinks I am, if I’m good as I need to be to continue to build AEW into the greatest company in the world today…! WHICH IT IS! I must, I will, I need, and I am going to beat MJF! I’ll say it again! I’m going to beat MJF!” This isn’t over, and that’s because the Inner Circle never forgives and sure has hell NEVER F’N FORGETS!! The Painmaker is fired up, and he has his boys backing him up! The Summer of Violence and Pain is just beginning, who will be standing come the Fall?

 

AEW hears from Best Friends.

Chuck Taylor isn’t sure why they’re doing this. Does he have to hold our hands to walk us through it? Does he have to insult our intelligence? If you saw Double or Nothing, you saw what happened. Kenny Omega is supposed to be the best in the world? Trent would like to point out that the “sunglasses comedy guy” had him beat twice in that match. Don Callis, why are you even here? You are a useless conman, and Cassidy should be champion. But bad guys cheat and win. Cassidy says, “If you think this is over, it’s not.” When and where will Freshly Squeezed get his fair shake against the Cleaner?

 

Kenny Omega and Don Callis do video package editing.

Kenny likes those frames. Maybe if there was some filters, it’d make the colors pop. Get the shots of the ref out of there. But this is good here. Alex Marvez apologizes for interrupting but Best Friends are accusing them of cheating Cassidy out of the win. Callis feels like Marvez is the one accusing them of something. Maybe we should move on from this “false narrative,” this “Dark Side of AEW” to the con job (as opposed to screw job) to take the AEW title off Omega. We should talk about the thing they’re working on here. They have the raw footage, and are going to blow the lid off this conspiracy next Friday on Dynamite! They’ll reveal the anti-Omega conspiracy going on around here!

Omega says Nakazawa is on the job, this is hot off the presses. Marvez points out that Omega still has to face Jungle Boy for the AEW World Championship in three weeks, who overcame 20 other competitors and won the Casino Battle Royale. Wow, 20? How many were in the top 5 rankings? Probably none. But there’s a big difference between being a Jungle Boy and a jungle man, and then an even bigger difference than a jungle man and a jungle champion. But the people love him, love to cheer for him. Heck, even Omega loves JB and that music. He can hear it now! Omega sings the Tarzan Boy “OooOOOoOO~,” and Callis joins in. Shouldn’t we go to see Jungle Boy? Yes, JB and Christian Cage are up next!

 

Christian Cage & Jungle Boy VS Private Party w/ Matt Hardy!

Captain Charisma was a finalist in the Casino Battle Royale, but as we know, Jungle Boy shocked him and us by winning! But they both have some beef to settle with the Hardy Family Office and are going to do it side by side! Will Christian and JB be able to outwork Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy? Or will Big Money Matt being ringside be a big factor?

The teams sort out, Christian starts with Kassidy and they circle. They tie up, Christian waistlocks then drags Kassidy down to get an arm. Christian tags JB and he climbs to drop ax handles on Kassidy’s arm. JB wrenches the arm, YANKS it, has a wristlock, and tags Christian. Christian takes the arm to hotshot it! Christian gets in to wrench the arm but Kassidy gets free to tag Quen. Quen says he’s got this, but he turns around into Christian’s FLAPJACK! Tag to JB, he and Christian double whip and double hip toss! Cover, ONE! JB facelocks but Quen JAWBREAKERS! Tag to Kassidy and he climbs up to drop ax handles on JB’s arm.

Kassidy wrenches, tags Quen back in, and Quen climbs up to shout out Hardy, but leaps into a kick! JB goes up and over Quen to wrench and CHOP Kassidy! JB knuckle locks with Quen, KICKS his leg, then goes up the ropes for a Arabian DOUBLE ARM-DRAG! Private Party ends up outside and fans fire up! Hardy talks trash to JB but JB sees Private Party regroup. JB runs and slides but the HFO disperses! JB elbows Kassidy, goes up to GAMANGIRI Quen down, then climbs. Kassidy anchors a foot but JB pushes him away. JB leaps but Quen dropkicks him out of the air! Cover, TWO! Quen keeps on JB with knees to the back, then drags him up to tag in Kassidy.

Private Party stomp mudholes into JB, then Quen whips Kassidy in. JB tosses Kassidy out, dodges Quen and slides under. Kassidy slingshots but JB dodges the senton! JB shoulders into Quen, slingshots up and over and dodges Kassidy, hot tag to Christian! Christian rallies on Kassidy, Kassidy reverses the whip but Christian CLOBBERS him! Hardy is furious as Christian stands on Kassidy at the ropes! Christian lets off to slingshot and UPPERCUT! Christian gets back in, goes up and hits a FLYING UPPERCUT! Christian waits for Kassidy to stand, but Kassidy kicks low! Kassidy RAMS Christian into the HFO corner but Christian fights out with heavy hands!

Christian has Kassidy in the corner, climbs up and rains down fists! Hardy distracts, Quen HOTSHOTS Christian from the top! JB protests but the ref missed it as Kassidy looms over Christian and AEW goes picture in picture.

Kassidy digs his knee into Christian’s neck and chest, the ref counts and Kassidy lets off at 4. Kassidy gets Christian up to put in the HFO corner and choke him! The ref counts, Kassidy lets off at 4 and Quen gets his cheap shots in. JB protests, but Private Party mug Christian against ropes! The ref counts, Quen stomps choking Christian, but then Kassidy talks trash right to Christian’s face. Quen drags Christian up and in, JB and fans rally but Quen chokes Christian on ropes again! The ref counts, Quen lets off but Kassidy chokes Christian right behind her back! Tag to Kassidy, and he still chokes Christian!

The ref reprimands and counts and Kassidy lets off, to then run and springboard hotshot! Cover, TWO! The HFO is annoyed but Kassidy keeps between Christian and JB. Kassidy wraps on a facelock and grinds Christian back towards the corner. Christian keeps fighting, but Quen gets a foot to drag him back! Kassidy gets Christian up, throws body shots and backs Kassidy down, to then roll him for a cradle! TWO, and Kassidy throat chops Christian down! The ref reprimands but Kassidy sucker punches JB! Kassidy soaks up the heat as AEW returns to single picture, and he stands on Christian’s leg. Tag to Quen and Private Party combine for the wheelbarrow SPLASH!

Quen and Kassidy strike a five second pose! They mock the E&C Connection then stomp Christian down. Quen stands on Christian, stomps him, then tags Kassidy. Private Party gets Christian up and coordinate in a corner, but Christian throws body shots! Kassidy DECKS Christian, then hotshots JB just as he gets back up! Kassidy tags Quen, they drag Christian up, but fans rally as they puppet him for the five second pose. But he grabs them for DOUBLE REVERSE DDT’S! Hardy is furious with his team as Christian reaches for JB! Quen grabs a leg, Christian BOOTS him away, hot tag to Jungle Boy! JB rallies on Quen, then on Kassidy!

JB forearms and CHOPS Quen in a corner, whips him corner to corner but Quen runs in, into an elbow! ROLLING ELBOW! UPPERCUT! JB whips but Quen reverses, only to get the REBOUND LARIAT! Fans fire up for JB and he drags Quen up. SNAP BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Quen survives but JB keeps cool as he WRECKS Kassidy with a dropkick! JB aims from the apron, shoulders into Quen and steps in for a TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO! Quen lives but JB has him in the SNARE TRAP!! Kassidy CLOBBERS JB, but Christian gets in to ROCK him with right hands! Christian PLANCHAS but Hardy saves Kassidy! Christian hits floor!

JB grabs at Kassidy but gets a thumb to the eye! Quen rolls JB up and holds tights, TWO!! Fans are thunderous for JB as Quen puts him up top. Quen and Kassidy coordinate, but Christian slides in. JB holds off Gin ‘n’ Juice and Christian SPEARS Kassidy down! JB gets Quen around for a SNARE TRAP!! Quen taps, JB and Christian win!!

Winners: Christian Cage & Jungle Boy, by submission

The third-ranked tag team in AEW is no longer undefeated in 2021! And as for Jungle Boy, he’s another step closer to the world title! Will he be as red hot as the summer itself once he finally faces Kenny Omega?

But Hardy still gets Christian for a TWIST OF FATE to the ramp! The leech is a chicken and he runs away! Will Christian make Big Money Matt pay for this in due time?

 

Team Taz speaks.

“Hangman Page, this past Sunday at Double or Nothing, you got lucky, brother.” Hangman got lucky against Brian Cage and the team. But that’s fine, because while Hangman got one over The Machine, The Machine already has one over on Hangman. Next week, Hangman will pick a partner from The Dark Order to deal with BOTH the Powerhouse and the Machine in a 2v2 tag match! And it’ll be bad news, Taz guarantees it! Go ahead and scout these guys on Elevation, because Cage and Hobbs will tear through two poor sons o’ bitches. Hangman, you will learn that you screwed around with the wrong club. Who will Hangman have backing him up for next week’s third Friday Night Dynamite in a row?

 

Schiavone is back in the ring.

One of the most memorable moments at Double or Nothing was seeing this man in the ring for the first time in over six years, helping his team to victory. Schiavone introduces Darby Allin and… STIIIIIING~! The Relentless and the Icon are here again after winning a traditional tag team match with Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky, and Schiavone congratulates them both. That was a sensational night, and everyone was glad to be part of it. Sting takes the mic to say that he has had so many incredible experiences in wrestling. But last Sunday, Double or Nothing, right here in Daily’s Place, will be a night that he never, ever, ever forgets! That stands up to anything he’s ever done in this business!

Fans chant, “You Still Got It!” for Sting and Darby nods agreement. Sting thanks them for that, and appreciates them all. But someone is sarcastically clapping on the titantron. It’s Scorpio Sky, with Ethan Page by his side. Scorpio mockingly says congratulations are in order. “Sting, you were remarkable on Sunday, you really were.” Now we know why he is The Icon. He even smelled good! But what matters is that he was so good that he could even drag Darby Allin over the finish line. Literally! Because when Ethan threw Darby so hard he landed in the front row, if it wasn’t for Sting dragging him over the railing, Darby’d still be down out there.

And furthermore, Ethan wants Darby to know Sting has been carrying Darby through his AEW career! Ethan knows Darby stands for fighting and spirit, but all Ethan sees is a “spineless, codependent BITCH.” So it goes like this: find anyone other than Sting, and prove them wrong! All Ego & The Face of the Revolution have put forth a challenge, and Darby is speechless! Who will the Relentless One turn to in order to settle things with Scorpio & Ethan?

 

AEW returns, with a celebration prepared!

Schiavone is still in the ring, with Vickie Guerrero, Nyla Rose, Chaos Project, The Hybrid2, Diamante and the entire Pretty Picture standing together by a table that has one, something hidden under a red felt cloth, and two, a platter STACKED with burgers. Schiavone says that it was quite the night at Double or Nothing for many, but none bigger, perhaps, than the crowning of a NEW AEW Women’s World Champion! Welcome both Rebel, and The Doctor, BRITT BAKER, DMD! Britt and Rebel make their way out to the ring, the newly redesigned title around Britt’s waist, and Rebel showing off Britt’s new merchandise shirts.

Ryan Nemeth and Rebel help Britt with the ropes, Britt is handed the mic and says, “Wow! Thank you, everybody, form the bottom of my heart for attending my championship celebration. This means the world to me.” And from what she understands, the fans all got freebies tonight. She never thought she could one-up Chris Jericho, but… LA Champion outdid herself because she was gifted 1500 BURGER COUPONS. So get in on the fun, get that coupon! Show ’em off! Uh, are you sure they’re there? Oh, wait, sorry. They’re all still right here, with Britt, where they belong! BRITT did the work, SHE #OutWorkedEveryone, and everyone else was just along for the ride.

You can’t deny that when Britt is on TV, your eyes are glued to her. She promised a whole new era, and damn was she right! Did you know what letters she saw all over the place on Sunday? DMD! And what letters did she hear deafening chants for? DMD! And do you know what three letters will elevate this company to a whole new stratosphere? DMD! The AEW Women’s World Champion! Fans are divided but Britt says she’s going to invite two people worthy enough to come along for the ride. Schiavone, get yourself a burger. Rebel, you, too. Yes, with your hands, Schiavone! Burger cheers!

But Nyla SLAPS the cheeseburgers right out of their hands! And then throws some to the crowd! Well, they won’t hold up flying through the air, but the thought is what counts. Nyla flips Britt off and storms out. The Native Beast even pops the balloons! Will Nyla be feasting on a title opportunity instead?

 

Alex Marvez interviews Eddie Kingston.

The Mad King saved Penta and Pac, but then Penta and Pac storm in and asks what the hell! “Let it be known, we don’t want your help! We don’t need your help! So keep your nose out of our business, ya understand?!” Kingston wants The Bastard and his former best friend to understand, because he’ll keep it simple: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Let that marinate in your brains for a little bit.” Is that Kingston’s way of asking for an alliance against The Elite? Will Death Triangle accept the offer?

 

Red Velvet w/ Big Swole & KiLynn King VS The Bunny w/ The Hardy Family Office!

With a new women’s champion comes new opportunities to be a contender! But will Velvet serve up an L as she stirs it up? Or will Allie drag her down the rabbit hole and frolic her way to the title?

The second Velvet gets in the ring, Bunny attacks! Velvet is ready, though, and she drop toeholds her to ropes! Velvet runs as the bell rings and DOUBLE KNEES Bunny down! Then STANDING MOONSAULTS! Cover, TWO! Bunny bails out and regroups with Blade, but Velvet builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit but risky for Velvet! Velvet shakes it off and fires up to get Bunny back in the ring. Velvet drags Bunny to a cover, TWO! Bunny sputters to a corner but Velvet runs in for boxing body shots! The ref counts, Velvet lets off to stomp a mudhole into Bunny! Velvet stirs it up as she digs her boot in and does the splits! The ref counts again, Velvet taunts Blade as she lets off then drags Bunny.

Velvet has Bunny in a drop zone, then she climbs up, but Bunny mule kicks a leg out! Velvet is stuck up top, Bunny SUPERKICKS her to the floor! Blade laughs at Velvet and says that’s what she gets! Bunny skips around, laughs like a hyena, then goes out to fetch Velvet. Bunny stomps Velvet, drags her up, and puts her in. Fans chant “Stir It Up!’ as Bunny stalks Velvet and drags her up. Bunny bumps Velvet off buckles, stomps a mudhole into her now, then runs corner to corner for a SLIDING FOREARM! Bunny growls then laughs then covers, ONE!! Velvet is still in this as AEW goes picture in picture!

Bunny stomps Velvet, Blade talks trash with Swole and King, but Velvet hits Bunny back! Bunny knees low, TOSSES Velvet by her hair, and then soaks up the heat. Bunny gets in Velvet’s face but Velvet hits back! Bunny KICKS Velvet in the side! And CLAWS Velvet’s back! The ref reprimands, Bunny drags Velvet up and CHOPS her! And CHOPS her! And whips her, but Velvet ducks, dodges and sunset flips! TWO, and Velvet gets up, only for Bunny to CLOBBER her! Bunny laughs again, covers, TWO! Bunny is back to being frustrated as Velvet survives. Bunny stomps Velvet more, and more, and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns Velvet rallies on Allie with forearms! And a calf kick! Velvet fires up with the fans as Bunny flounders to a corner. Velvet runs in to SHINING WIZARD! And RUNNING STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Velvet is beside herself but Swole and King coach her up. Velvet gets Bunny up but Bunny ROCKS Velvet and fireman’s carries. Velvet fights out, KICKS and KICKS, then runs, into a SUPERKICK!! Both women flounder, Blade slips Bunny something but Velvet’s friends protest! They’re only helping Bunny get away with this! Bunny aims at Velvet, but misses the brass knuckle punch! Mule kick to JUST DESSERTS! Cover, Velvet wins!!

Winner: Red Velvet, by pinfall

Incredible! Velvet beats Bunny and is surely moving up the rankings! Will Velvet prove herself a contender? Will Britt Baker have to watch her back, and her teeth, for this one?

 

The Dark Order speaks.

It’s John Silver’s birthday! And #JohnnyHungy! But not just for cake, he’s hungy for gold! He and Tony Khan talked, and while Tony wanted to give Silver another TNT Championship opportunity, Silver’s still not medically cleared. So Silver said to give the shot to Evil Uno! Really!? These opportunities don’t come often so Uno vows to make them proud! The Dark Order is fired up, but can Player One really beat The Best Man? Speaking of…

 

Miro speaks.

THE AEW TNT Champion starts by thanking God for blessing him with physical power. And then a special shout out to his super hot wife. And then Miro brings up what we just learned: Evil Uno is his next challenger? Pfft. That makes no sense. Miro is bigger, faster, and undefeated. Uno comes from an emotional place, but maybe he’ll be too emotionally involved with something that doesn’t belong to him, and that will only get him hurt. Miro has no feelings. He will use this as a teachable moment for the rest of the AEW roster: You don’t come after someone like Miro when you just think you may win. You come after Miro when you know… you can survive! Will Uno simply be the first to fall to the Bulgarian Barbarian?

 

AEW is set for yet another Friday Night Dynamite!

Not only will there be the TNT Championship match, but there will be a Trios Match of The Young Bucks & Brandon Cutler VS Eddie Kingston & Death Triangle! Will the uneasy alliance work out against The Elite? And Team Taz’s challenge has been accepted by Hangman and NUMBER 10, Preston Vance! Will the Dark Order’s behemoth be enough to help the Anxious Millennial Cowboy to stop Cage AND Hobbs?

 

Bullrope Match: Dustin Rhodes VS Nick Comoroto w/ Aaron Solow!

An AEW first is between a man who dominates this match type, and the Freak Beast of the Factory! They call him the Natural, but will Dustin be able to defy physical limitations against a man who is bigger, stronger and hairier? Or will Comoroto be a wrecking ball that secures the sweep?

AEW returns once more as Comoroto makes his entrance. Dustin meets him at the ramp and the brawl is on! Dustin gets the edge, bumps Comoroto of buckles, but Comoroto doesn’t even flinch! Dustin throws hands but Comoroto knees low! Comoroto gorilla presses then TOSSES Dustin into the ring! The ref hurries to stop this because the rope is the important part of the match! Comoroto lets his hand be strapped in, fans rally up for Dustin, and the bell rings! Comoroto reels Dustin in but Dustin uses that to throw hands! Comoroto shoves, Dustin dodges and trips Comoroto up with the rope, to then YOINK into the Freak Beast’s wrecking balls!

Dustin gets the cowbell and takes aim, but Comoroto dumps him to the apron! Comoroto hotshots Dustin, then chokes him with the strap! Dustin CLOCKS Comoroto with the cowbell! Dustin gets back in, runs and leaps, but into Comrmoto’s arms! Comoroto pops Dustin up, but Dustin slips off and untangles himself to clothesline Comoroto and himself out! Dustin is up first but Comoroto throws hands. Dustin hits Comoroto in the ribs with the cowbell! Comoroto staggers, Dustin hits him again! And ROCKS him with a haymaker! Comoroto shoves Dustin, Dustin runs back in but Comoroto tosses him up and over railing! Dustin lands nicely in a front row seat, and chokes Comoroto with ropes!

Comoroto elbows free, ROCKS Dustin, and Dustin sits back down. Comoroto hops the rail to get Dustin up for haymakers. Comoroto pushes the wrestlers ringside around to clear space, but Fuego Del Sol fights back! Comoroto just TOSSES Fuego into everyone else!! Dustin DECKS Comoroto, and hops back over the railing. Dustin checks on Fuego, he and the others are alright, so Dustin goes looking under the ring. Solow goes after Dustin since there’s no disqualifications, but Dustin fights him off to hit a SPINNING POWERSLAM! Dustin glares at Solow, but Comoroto reels him in for a SPEAR! Fans boo but Comoroto, bloody forehead and all, just roars!

Comoroto paces while Dustin sits up. Comoroto stomps Dustin, drags him up, and bumps him off railing! Fans cheer Dustin on but Comoroto paces. Comoroto drags Dustin up, puts him in the ring, but Dustin bails out the other side. Dustin has the rope around the post and he YANKS Comoroto into steel! And then headlocks, only for Comoroto to pick up and SLAM Dustin into the apron! Comoroto gets in the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.

Comoroto has a crimson mask as he drags Dustin up and into the ring with the rope! Cover, TWO!! Dustin survives but Comoroto paces around as he seethes. Comoroto drags Dustin up, but Dustin throws body shots! Comoroto whips Dustin, and JAMS him with the cowbell! Dustin drops in a heap and Comoroto paces around, still bleeding all over himself. Comoroto HAMMERS Dustin with the cowbell, chokes him with the rope, but Dustin refuses to give up. Comoroto drops ax handles, covers, TWO! Dustin gets up and to a corner, kicks back, and kicks again. Comoroto throws hands, whips corner to corner, and Dustin hits hard!

Comoroto paces, looms over Dustin, and CLOBS him with the cowbell! And then drops elbows! Dustin fires up and fans fire up with him! Dustin ROCKS Comoroto with haymakers, but Comoroto whips. Dustin holds ropes then dumps Comoroto out to the apron. Dustin CHOKES Comoroto now! AEW returns to single picture as Dustin CLUBS away on Comoroto! Solow hurries to help by getting a TABLE! Dustin and Comoroto brawl on the apron, Solow sets that table up nearby, and Comoroto elbows Dustin. Dustin runs but into a scoop! Comoroto aims but Dustin slips off! Dustin has the rope and CLOBBERS Comoroto with it all!

Dustin goes out and fires up as he runs on the apron. Comoroto dodges the kick, gets Dustin off the apron, and POWERBOMBS him through the table!! Solow is fired up and fans lose their minds as Comoroto gets Dustin up and into the ring! Cover, TWO?!?! Dustin survives and no one can believe it! Dustin fires himself up as Comoroto does the same. Solow undoes a buckle pad! But COLTEN GUNN goes after Solow! The Factory’s Ogogo put his brother, Austin, on the shelf for who knows how long, so Colten’s going to get back at someone! Dustin kicks Comoroto, hits the Rhodes Uppercut, then runs to BULLDOG! And then the FINAL RECKONING on the cowbell! Cover, ONE?!?!?

Comoroto roars, he is definitely a Freak Beast! Dustin aims, but Comoroto blocks the cowbell attack! So Dustin LOW BLOWS! Dustin runs to LARIAT, but Comoroto stays up! Dustin tries again, Comoroto is still up! Dustin tries again but Comoroto BOOTS him! Comoroto runs in, but Dustin FLAPJACKS him onto the bare buckle! And then another COWBELL SHOT!! Dustin goes up top, FLYING BULLDOG!! Hogtie cover, Dustin wins!!

Winner: Dustin Rhodes, by pinfall

The Natural managed to defeat one hell of a monster, but the war of Nightmare Family and Factory is just getting hotter! Dustin celebrates with fans, will he and the rest of his team be celebrating more victories over QT and his cohorts?


My Thoughts:

Another awesome AEW, but it seems like June is going to have Dynamite on every night other than Wednesday. Another Friday next week, then Saturday on the 26th to close out the month. I suppose the 16th might be the only Wednesday, but even that could change and put it on Thursday or something. And unless I misheard it at Double or Nothing, did they move Omega VS Jungle Boy? I suppose it works out, JB can get a ton of momentum going into Saturday Night Dynamite, even though Omega is surely retaining. JB & Christian VS Private Party was great stuff, but while JB wins it, I should’ve known Hardy would get the last word on Christian. Those two could have a great match together as Christian clearly moves away from Team Taz while Ricky Starks is still hurt.

Speaking of which, Team Taz of course wants to continue things against Hangman Page, and I like that they’re incorporating The Dark Order into it. Vance is a great choice since he matches up in size, but I have a feeling Vance takes the loss for the team. Hangman VS Cage tiebreaker is coming, and again, I hope the FTW Championship is on the line. Miro VS Uno will be good but probably not a very long match. Miro is going to hold that belt for a long time, I’m sure of it. Depending on who is where and doing what, I don’t see Miro losing until at least Revolution 2022, where either Archer wins on third time’s the charm, or Darby makes a heroic return for this title.

Opening with the Bucks VS Death Triangle was great, and it was a great detail for Frankie Kazarian to get after The Elite again. Turns out, Kaz attacked the wrong crony since it was Cutler who helped the Bucks screw over Pac & Penta. But it was great for Eddie Kingston to show up. With Moxley taking time off for family, and Fenix taken out for story drama, it makes sense for Kingston to make an alliance with Penta and Pac. Their Six Man with Bucks & Cutler will be great stuff, but between cheating and dysfunction, Kingston, Pac & Penta will lose. But again, “enemy of my enemy is my friend” should apply to Kaz, he can join in and we’ll get a huge match of The Elite VS Elite’s enemies.

Cody & Johnson VS QT & Ogogo was really good, but of course this was for the Factory to get back on the board. There is still a lot of pacing stuff that has been weird with this. QT’s bragging promo really should’ve been after The Factory helped him cheat to win a 1v1 match with Cody. And that would’ve still come after a match like we got in tonight’s main event. Dustin VS Comoroto was a very fast but a really good bullrope match. If this was earlier in the night as a main event, had more time to breathe, it would’ve been even better because of the drama and the tension being dragged out so it could sink it. Dustin wins, of course, and I still think we need Dustin VS QT in a grudge match. We should’ve gotten that and QT VS Johnson long before QT VS Cody, but Cody’s gotta get the spotlight.

Mark Henry had a good promo, though it did get cut short by Vickie. But wow, Andrade “El Idolo” Almas in AEW! I hope they find a way to tie in the scheduled AAA Mega Championship match between Andrade and Omega in August as it draws closer. If AEW is going to do crossovers with other companies, now’s the time to make it more than just guest appearances. Omega himself should get into a story where he’s torn between all the companies he’s a champion in. While Omega VS Moose for the Impact World Championship is next week and Omega VS JB for the AEW World Championship is the 26th, there could be even more going on in August with All Out, Omega VS Andrade and whatever Impact will have by then. Omega might be cocky now but I hope he “feels the stress” before the end.

The Inner Circle had a POWERFUL promo tonight, and them giving away those shirts was awesome, both kayfabe and shoot. And given that the series is tied 1-1 in big faction matches, I like that things are breaking off into the separate feuds. Which is oddly backwards, but it’ll definitely help fill out Dynamites and other specials. I’m most interested in Hager VS Wardlow in an AEW take on MMA. Velvet VS Bunny was very good, and it’s great for Velvet to win to stay in the top 5. Like I said for Dark and Elevation earlier in the week, if AEW made “on the bubble” matches matter a bit more, it’d add some drama to matches like this one. I guess they just expect us to feel it, but not everyone is going to keep up with the rankings on their own.

Britt Baker’s celebration went almost how I hoped. Nyla being present to start was interesting, but I like that she comes off the comparative Face simply by throwing burgers and popping balloons. More of the top 5, like Thunder Rosa, Tay Conti and now Leyla Hirsch, showing up would’ve been a nice touch, too, but Nyla doing this to step up clearly sets up a Fyter Fest title match for her and Britt. As I’ve also said for Dark and Elevation, Britt should defend against everyone but Rosa until she just can’t deny Rosa any longer, and we get a huge match for them at whatever PPV AEW wants it to be.

My Score: 9.2/10

Bryan Danielson is still down on the ramp after Konosuke Takeshita’s Brainbuster and the medics check him. The battle with Will Ospreay at Dynasty is still in the books, but what condition will Bryan be in?

 

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

FTW Championship: Hook VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil knows he’s up against a bad, bad man, but this is FTW Rules! Everyone who fights for this title is a bad, bad man, so will Hook prove he’s the baddest? Or will Shane #SendHook back to New York without his gold?

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?

 

AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over.

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?

 

ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?


My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (4/13/24)

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.
  • AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay; Storm wins and denies AZM a title match.
  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?

 

Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

Collision returns and Shibata gets back in the ring after having wrecked Lee on the outside. But then Lee wrenches Shibata. Shibata ROCKS Lee, Lee wrenches, repeat! Lee CHOPS Shibata, but Shibata doesn’t budge! Lee CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Lee CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, but Shibata is leaning into the shots! Shibata backs Lee down even though Lee CHOPS again and again! Shibata eggs Lee on, Ogogo coaches Lee, and the CHOPS keep going. Shibata ROCKS Lee with a forearm! Lee flops in a corner, Shibata fires more forearms on him! Shibata UPPERCUTS, then JABS, then COHPS! JAB CHOP JAB CHOP!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it!

Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?

 

Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off! AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

AZM ducks ‘n’ dodges, trips Storm then keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Basement dropkick! The fans fire up as AZM kips up again! AZM pushes Storm around, steps on her, and the ref counts. AZM steps away at 4, the fans rally up, and AZM runs to DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, ONE!! Storm toughs it out and the fans rally as AZM goes to the apron. AZM climbs, Storm DECKS her! Storm then runs to HIP ATTACK AZM to the floor! AZM tumbles away to the ramp, but Anna gets Mariah in a QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! Mariah RAMS Anna into railing! Mariah and Anna fight now, the fans fire up, and AZM gets outta the way!

Storm is flabbergasted as Anna and Mariah brawl their way to the back! Storm fetches AZM but AZM whips her into steel steps! Then AZM pushes Storm around, goes up the apron, and fans fire up for the PENALTY KICK! Storm is dazed but the fans fire up as Collision goes picture in picture.

AZM shoves Storm in, goes up top, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Storm flounders all the way across the ring! AZM storms over to drag Storm up, but Storm HOTSHOTS her!

AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands? Or can Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood find a way to come out on top?

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine. Bryan might as well just expect not to walk out on his own. One last message has been sent, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will the Protostar & Powerhouse pulverize the BCC?

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
