The Boston Brawler and Johnny Gargano’s protégé brawled backstage on behalf of their leaders, and now are going to fight for themselves! Will Theory feel the fury? Or will he make it #TheWayAllDay on a Tuesday night?

The bell rings, the two tie up and go around the ropes. Theory forearms then headlocks, but Oney brings Theory down to a knee and goes after the arm. Theory endures, fights up but Oney wrenches. Theory kicks low, has Oney in a corner and fires forearms. Theory whips, Oney reverses but Theory goes up and over and dropkicks Oney down! Oney gets up into Theory’s headlock takeover. Theory says “That’s the way!” but Oney headscissors back. Oney squeezes tight but Theory moves around.

Oney brings Theory up to whip and CLOBBER with a back elbow! Oney snarls while fans boo and Theory checks his face. Theory gets up and throws body shots but Oney EuroUppers again! Oney has Theory up and throws him to the apron. Theory shoulders in but into a knee! Theory falls to the floor, Oney goes out and CHOPS him again! Theory blocks the next one to CHOP back! Theory forearms Oney then puts him on the apron.

Oney clings to ropes as Theory climbs up, and Oney TRIPS Theory! Theory lands hard on the apron then flops to the floor! Pete Dunne now strolls out to ringside and NXT goes picture in picture.

Theory sees Dunne, Oney refreshes the ring count and gets Theory in the ring. The ref warns the Bruiserweight but Dunne stays back as Oney goes into the ring. Oney clotheslines Theory in the corner, then whips him corner to corner. Theory tumbles up then back into a CHOP! Theory falls and Oney gets the legs! Oney turns Theory for the FULL Boston Crab!

Theory gets to a corner, Oney brings him up and scoops him for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Oney clamps onto Theory with a partial camel clutch and pulls Theory back!

Theory endures, reaches for ropes again, but powers up, only for Oney to knock him down! Oney gets the camel clutch back and continues to pull Theory. Theory fights up but Oney knocks him down again! Oney soaks up the heat before he puts the camel clutch back on again. Theory refuses to give in, and he still reaches for ropes. Theory tries to pry free but Oney just shifts to a new grip. Theory still works on Oney’s hands, gets some breathing room, and gets up with Oney as a backpack! Oney CLUBS Theory with a crossface forearm to bring him back down!

Oney keeps moving, and hits another back body block! Oney wants a third, but he runs into a SOMERSAULT BLOCKBUSTER! The fans are fired up and Gargano coaches Theory up. Theory gets Oney with forearms but Oney EuroUppers back! These two brawl again, then Theory clotheslines Oney out of the ring! A ring count starts as Oney crawls. Oney stands at 3, gets in at 5, and shoves Theory hard out of the ring! Fans boo as Oney goes out after Theory, but glares at Gargano.

Oney stands Theory up but Theory throws Oney into boards! And then again! Theory gets Oney up and into the ring. Oney swings but into a cording hold, and then Theory CLOBBERS Oney!

Theory is still distracted, through, and Oney SMACKS Theory off a corner! Oney hits a HALF NELSON SLAM! Cover, Oney wins!

Winner: Oney Lorcan, by pinfall

That was not the way Theory wanted that to go! Oney bails out to regroup with Dunne while Gargano checks on his guy. Will things go any better for Johnny Wrestling when he, the Bruiserweight, and the other top contenders meet again later tonight?

 

LA Knight is enjoying some downtime.

He sings Ted DeBiase’s theme song as he showers in his luxurious home. Knight brings up DeBiase wanting to pass on the Million Dollar Legacy, and if DeBiase wants someone to take it to unseen heights, it’s L. A. Knight! Knight thanks the woman helping him with his robe, then asks all his ladies if they want to hear a story. Meet him in the hot tub.

Cut to said hot tub, the ladies having glasses of champagne, and Knight is having them imagine how TakeOver: In Your House will end. That idiot, Cameron Grimes, will get his ass kicked in while everyone else around the world, including Grimes’ idol, the Million Dollar Man, is laughing their asses off at him! AHAHAHAHA! The ladies don’t get it but they laugh along as best they can. Alright, enough. The ladies help Knight with his Mercedes Benz, and he says DeBiase has gotten to see everything. Knight says the answer is clear: you go with L, A, Knight, yeah! But will DeBiase choose to let actions speak for themselves come TakeOver?

 

“Wellllll HELLO~ WWE Universe!”

L I V E this Sunday, June 13th, we see Ember Moon challenge Raquel Gonzalez for her NXT Women’s Championship, Cameron Grimes and LA Knight fight over the Million Dollar Legacy, Xia Li look for vengeance on Mercedes Martinez, and of course, THE FATAL 5 WAY for THE NXT Championship!

El Legado del Fantasma is in the ring!

Santos Escobar calls out Bronson Reed, telling him that after what he did to Escobar, and how he cost Escobar’s hermanos their NXT Tag Team Championship match, Escobar will make him pay! But here comes the COLOSSAL North American Champion himself! Reed tells Santos, “I was gonna come out here and tell you you’re full of it, but after I squished you last week, I think I emptied you out.” The replay shows it, and yes, Escobar definitely had to clean his pants out after that. Wanna see it again? Here it is on the big screen! Again, and again, and again! Legado is furious but Reed and his fans are enjoying himself.

Escobar says if Reed thinks he’s so tough, then get in the ring and do it again! “You’re on!” Reed storms to the ring, but MSK shows up to keep the numbers even! Escobar says he should’ve known. Legado backs off, Escobar vowing that they’re going to take Reed’s title and his guys are gonna take MSK’s titles! And better yet, let’s do it all at once! A Six Man Tag match, WINNERS TAKE ALL! Reed talks with MSK, and they agree. Fine! Fine! FINE! Wes Lee wants to see the squash again. The replay hits again, and again, and again. Will that happen when both the North American AND Tag Team Championships are all on the line at the same time?

Wait, here comes Hit Row! Briana “B-Fab” Brandy, “Top Dolla” AJ Francis, Ashante THEE Adonis, and of course, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott strut down the ramp and stare Legado down. They also talk some trash with the Colossal and the Must-See Kids. All these trios might meet one day, but for now, this is about the fight they picked with Big Damo and Rockstar Spud.

Poppy is here!

The Grammy award nominated favorite of the black ‘n’ gold is back! How hard will she rock the CWC this time?

 

Backstage interview with Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell.

Mrs. Wrestling has been vocal about how she doesn’t like Poppy hanging around NXT, and we just saw Poppy arrive. Why is Candice so against her? This right here is why! We’re again talking to The Way, but you have to bring up Poppy? Right, Indi? Actually, Indi heard Dexter Lumis came by and picked up her headphones last week, and even teared up! Indi thinks Dexter still loves her! She has to go! No, Indi, no! Why is this still happening? They weren’t a thing! They weren’t a thing! Candice is frustrated and storms off, but will she worry more about Indi falling for the Tortured Artist or about the musical artist preparing to perform?

 

Cameron Grimes shows off his crib this time!

Grimes hits a CANNONBALL~ into his indoor pool! Grimes also says that DeBiase is looking for a man worthy of the Million Dollar Legacy! Will it be LA Knight? Or the man in the deep-end, Cameron Grimes? Grimes is just watching his money literally burn, and using it to light his fancy cigars, only to cough on the smoke. Grimes says that just like DeBiase, he can enjoy a “fine Cubano in my spare time.” Then the Scotch is STRONG. Has DeBiase tried this before? Does he like it? Cuz Grimes loves it *cough cough*

Grimes gets a massage and tips big. Grimes even gives the masseuse a massage just cuz he can! Grimes pulls up in his Rolls Royce and admits, he hasn’t shown DeBiase anything DeBiase hasn’t seen before. But Grimes will focus on taking the Million Dollar Legacy TOOOO THEEEE MOOOON~! Will this sales pitch convince the Million Dollar Man? Or is DeBiase going to leave things in Grimes’ hands?

“Xia! You messed with the wrong one!” Mercedes has sent a message of her own, but will she be able to capitalize and crush Tian Sha’s assassin?

 

Backstage interview with Breezango.

McKenzie welcomes Tyler Breeze & Fandango back to NXT, but asks them how they feel about Walter’s orders to Imperium. Fandango hushes “Makakenzie” and says he has questions for her: One, does she like their shirts? Yes. Then two, why is Walter so angry? Hasn’t he been German Champion for nine years now? Breeze corrects Dango, it’s NXT UK Champion, and yes he’s been a dominant force all over Europe. Then that makes him the Bruno Sammartino of Europe. Yeah, but they need to worry about Fabio and Marsupial. No, no, Breeze, it’s Fabian and Marcel. Oh Dango’s going to correct him now?

Well point is, Imperium is after them. Breeze saw the propaganda video, just like Dango did. They have sour grapes over losing the titles to Breezango. So Breezango needs to beat Imperium again on their way back to the titles, which means Imperium will disappoint Walter again. Dango shows off a bit more chest before taking his exit with Breeze, but will the Lord of the Dance and Prince Pretty have to get ugly to overcome the Ring General’s soldiers?

 

Triple H and William Regal welcome Poppy back.

They’re happy to have her again, and HHH wants to tell her how much he loves her newest tracks. All the new tracks she is allowing them to use, from Eat to Say Cheese, it’s all awesome. But when will the album “drop?” Poppy says it’s dropping right NOW! What? Really? She’s just gonna push a button and boom? Yep. Sweet! Do it! Done. So okay, hold on. All she did was push a button on her phone, and boom, world premiere of the Poppy “Eat” NXT Soundtrack? All five tracks? Yes! From Spotify to Apple music and iTunes, all of it, for the whole world? Yep. Technology’s amazing. HHH loves it. So does Poppy.

Dexter Lumis walks in, looks at Poppy, and offers her a custom piece of artwork! Poppy is honored and thanks him for it. She even gives him a hug! Indi walks in and misunderstands! She runs away crying and screaming, and now Dexter might have found him in the dog house. Well, that’s awkward. How can Lumis make this up to Indi?

 

Cameron Grimes pulls up into the parking lot.

And then so does LA Knight! Well about time! Yeah it is. And it’s about time Grimes take his trash, turn it around and drive it out of here. Security keeps these two from arguing, because DeBiase will be waiting in the ring. Well they can’t keep the Million Dollar Man waiting. Grimes says Knight looks like a waiter: BEGGIN’ FER TIPS! HAHAHA! Knight is BROKE! Says the rich troll living under the bridge. Yeah, so rich, he lives under TWO bridges! Grimes gives a big tip to the security guard to get something nice for his family. Oh wait, he doesn’t have a family! AHAHAHA! Anyway…

Ted Debiase is in the ring!

“Well before I make this absolutely Priceless Announcement, I would like for Cameron Grimes and LA Knight to join me here in the ring.” Grimes says he’ll take all the time he needs but Knight says Grimes just makes noise to make noise. Knight slaps Grimes’ money out of his hand then leaves him behind as he goes to gorilla. Knight makes his entrance but Grimes cuts the music off to put HIS song on! Grimes struts past Knight and goes to the ring, but Knight follows after while asking DeBiase if Grimes is really who he wants for this. Grimes counts his money and fans sing along with his song, but DeBiase has them get to business.

“Gentlemen, this Sunday is the ultimate test.” They’ve both proven themselves worthy, but it is time for them both to literally climb the ladder of success! A ladder descends from above, and it’s gold! It’s gonna be a MILLION DOLLAR LADDER MATCH! Knight says it has been abundantly clear since day one that he walks head and shoulders above the rest of the wrestlers. This Sunday, it doesn’t matter if Knight has to knock Grimes’ head off or climb the ladder, there is no hill he won’t climb or hillbilly he won’t step on, because there is only ONE man that can carry the Million Dollar Legacy, and that’s him! And why is that? That’s because this is L A Knight’s game!

Hillbilly? Grimes says Knight might be right, Grimes may be a hillbilly and a bit smelly, but he’s worth a million bucks! This hillbilly lives on the hilltop, looking down on Knight! Grimes knows DeBiase said this isn’t about the fame or the money, it was about what happens in between the ropes! Well what happens when Grimes is between these ropes and turnbuckles and in front of the people, Grimes cannot be beat! So take his money, take his fame, because he’ll take the legacy straight TO! THE! MOON~! Grimes climbs, and says as he looks to the top of the CWC, he doesn’t see what he’s supposed to be reaching for! DeBiase, what is Grimes reaching for?

DeBiase is glad Grimes asked. Gentlemen, bring it in. The security guards bring in a big briefcase, set it on the table for DeBiase, and open it up for him. Gentlemen, DeBiase wants you to know that you will be fighting, crawling, grabbing and using every fiber of their energy for what is inside here. THE MILLION DOLLAR CHAMPIONSHIP!! Knight and Grimes are beside themselves with excitement and awe! At TakeOver, the winner of this ladder match will be the NEW Million Dollar Champion! AHAHAHAHAHAHA! Now THAT is a legacy worth carrying! Will it be Knight’s belt, yeah? Or will Grimes take this title with him TO THE MOON~?

 

Something’s going down backstage!

Security and referees are rushing in to stop Kyle O’Reilly and Karrion Kross from fighting! Regal rushes in to tell them to stop! None of this is happening tonight! Kross and Kyle are still snarling, but will they be able to wait until Sunday?

 

“The following announcement has been paid for by the Ever-Rise.”

Friends of the show, they have big news for you! Your boys, THE Ever-Rise, are hosting the TakeOver: In Your House pre-preshow! It’s available on all social and digital platforms! Now you might be asking yourself, what is that? It’s the show before the preshow! And if you didn’t know, now you know! Wait, that’s Hit Row’s catchphrase. But it’s really good. Well, see you Sunday! Ever-Rise RULES! Okay that one is theirs.

 

Grizzled Young Veterans VS August Grey & Jiro Ikemen!

Zack Gibson & James Drake want to settle things with Old Man Ciampa and Toothless Timmy, but for now, they’ll have to settle for 205 Live’s life of the party tag team! Will #RetroAG and The Handsomest Man be able to survive against Liverpool’s Number One and Mr. Mayhem?

Gibson and Grey start and fans chant, “Gibson Sucks!” Grey and Gibson tie up, Gibson waistlocks and SLAMS Grey. Gibson shifts to a facelock, Grey gets up but Gibson wrenches an arm to a wristlock. Gibson wrangles Grey, Grey gets up and handsprings to wrench back. Grey headlocks, Gibson powers out but Grey headscissors Gibson down! Gibson gets up in a huff but Grey wrenches his arm. Tag to Jiro, he takes the hand-off, but Gibson pulls hair to throw Jiro down! Gibson gets Jiro up and grinds the headlock, but Jiro powers out to speed things up! JACKET PUNCH! Gibson flounders up and Jiro smiles as he reels him in. Gibson dumps Jiro to the apron but Jiro shoulders back!

Jiro springboards up and over to headscissor Gibson! Fans fire up with Jiro but Gibson jawbreakers back! Gibson sucker punches Grey, gets Jiro up and pulls his jacket up over his head! Jiro gets free to fire off PALM STRIKES! Jiro fires off fists then whips, but Gibson reverses to a headlock. Drake tags in, GYV speeds things up, and Drake sweeps the legs for Gibson to basement dropkick! Jiro flounders, MAYHEM IN MOTION for Grey! Fans fire up because that is still good, and GYV have their secret handshake. Drake KICKS Jiro’s bad leg and then twists it with a standing toehold! Drake eggs Jiro on then stomps and kicks the bad leg more!

Drake drags Jiro around, drops an elbow on the knee, then tags Gibson. GYV get Jiro up, they double scoop for a double slam into ropes! Jiro writhes, Drake talks trash, and Gibson gets Jiro’s leg. Jiro BOOTS Gibson, but Gibson kicks low! Tag back to Drake, SHINBREAKER and hand-off to DRAGON SCREW! Drake has the leg and he turns Jiro for a HALF CRAB! But here come Ciampa & Thatcher! GYV regroup but the grizzled old veterans just take seats at ringside. Jiro crawls, hot tag to Grey! Grey rallies on GYV with big haymakers! Grey fires off on Drake, Gibson goes after him but gets a JAWBREAKER to NECKBREAKER!

Grey runs and CHOPS Drake, then whips Drake around to reel him in for a BULLDOG! Grey fires up with the fans and he goes up top. TIGHTROPE CROSSBODY! Direct hit and fans fire up more! Grey has the arms hooked, but Drake denies So Much Prettier to then CLOBBER him! Drake seethes, tags Gibson, and Drake DECKS Jiro! They get Grey up for TICKET TO MAYHEM!! Cover as GYV stares down with Ciampa & Thatcher, GYV win!

Winners: Grizzled Young Veterans, by pinfall

Jiro & Retro did what they could but it wasn’t enough to overcome these former NXT UK Tag Team Champions! GYV get mics and hope the lads are listening! GYV is DONE with them, yet here they are, lingering like a bad smell! GYV are here for MSK and the tag titles! They’ve already proven they’re better, but Ciampa & Thatcher have only proven they’re two hooligans! Well GYV doesn’t get it, right? GYV isn’t getting their shot without going through Ciampa & Thatcher! Gibson gets angrier, but then Ciampa & Thatcher throw their chairs at him and Drake! Gibson wants Ciampa & Thatcher to listen. “If it’s a scrap you want, then it’s a scrap you’ll get!”

GYV VS Ciampa & Thatcher, no tag rules! TORNADO TAG to finish this the old fashioned way! Oh well GYV needs to know about Ciampa & Thatcher! They love tornadoes! They don’t need to tag! And they sure as hell don’t need to wait! Ciampa & Thatcher rush the ring but GYV bails out! Thatcher’s said it before and he’ll say it again: “I’m going to enjoy breaking your limbs!” The song says, “No one will survive,” and will that be true when young and old grizzled veterans collide in a match with no restraints?

 

Candice LeRae is storming towards gorilla.

What is she going to do and say as soon as she hits the ring? We’ll find out, after the break!

 

NXT hears from Bobby Fish.

The Infamous One is working out his frustrations in his own personal gym, and he tells Oney that he hasn’t forgotten. Will Fish sink his teeth right into the Boston Crab once he’s back in the ring?

 

Candice LeRae heads to the ring!

The Poison Pixie goes it alone, and she gets a mic to get to the point. “Poppy, Poppy, Poppy. I am so sick of hearing about Poppy!” The fans chant Poppy’s name and Candice says Poppy hijacked her interview last week, and then stole Indi’s man! And don’t act like you didn’t know Dexter Lumis was Indi’s man! Everyone loves #InDex! Now because of Poppy, Indi has left the building in tears, completely devastated. So Poppy has two options: The easy way, facing Candice right now, or the hard way, where Candice “properly introduces” Poppy to the parking lot. Poppy’s own music plays because here she comes!

Poppy tells Candice, “I don’t wrestle. But I know someone who does.” It’s IO SHIRAI! The Evil Genius is back, and she has no love lost for Candice! Candice panics as Shirai and Poppy head to the ring together. Poppy helps Shirai with her jacket, and then Shirai TACKLES Candice! Shirai gets Candice up for a FLAPJACK! Candice ends up on ropes, Shirai hits the TIGER FEINT! Shirai goes up and up and MISSILE DROPKICKS Candice out of the ring! The fans are fired up, Shirai and Poppy high five and toss their hair back. Candice is furious, but is there no way avoiding Shirai?

NXT shares footage from during commercial.

Ember Moon VS Dakota Kai w/ Raquel Gonzalez!

The Evolved Shenom wants the NXT Women’s Championship back just as badly as anyone else, but this is about what happened to her friend and tag partner, Shotzi Blackheart! Will Ember’s Law punish #CobraKai before going after Gonzalez and the gold at TakeOver?

The bell rings and Ember rushes in but Dakota dodges. Dakota swings kicks but Ember dodges, and vice-versa. Kicks hit kicks, forearms hit forearms, and the two stand off while fans cheer.

Ember pushes back to another cover, TWO and Dakota lets Ember free to LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Dakota is seething but she drags Ember around for a cravat neck wrench. Ember endures again, fights up, but Dakota snapmares. Ember handsprings through! Only for Dakota to throw her by her hair! Dakota wraps on a sleeper and squeezes tight! Ember fights up, Dakota hops on as a backpack, but Ember rolls for a SENTON! Dakota lets go and both women are down!

Ember and Dakota get up at the same time, Dakota swings into Ember’s BACK SUPLEX! Ember starts rallying with forearms and an ENZIGURI! Dakota ends up in a corner as Ember fires up! The CWC fire up with Ember as she snapmares Dakota. Ember climbs, leaps, FLYING CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Dakota survives but Ember keeps her cool. Ember drags Dakota up to CLUB her down. Ember runs but Dakota reels her in. Ember breaks free to SUPERKICK, but runs into a FOREARM! Dakota runs, Ember follows but Dakota side steps to BOOT her at ropes! Dakota snapmare and KICKS Ember in the back, then runs, only for Ember to duck and kip up and HOOK KICK!

Ember gets Dakota back up, dragon sleeper to a SOMERSAULT STUNNER!! Cover, TWO!! Dakota survives but again Raquel was ready to rush in. The CWC is thunderous as Ember gets Dakota in another dragon sleeper. Ember pulls back on the hold to squeeze the air out of Dakota, but Dakota fights up to her feet. Dakota turns things around to have a dragon sleeper of her own, TWISTING FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Ember lives and Raquel is frustrated must of all! Dakota drags Ember up, gives her Kowata Kicks, and then an extra round! Ember blocks to throw Dakota, but Dakota SCORPION KICKS and then BOOTS Ember!

Ember ends up in a corner, Dakota goes Around the World for a BOOT! Cover, TWO!! Dakota and Raquel are both beside themselves as Ember survives. Fans rally and duel, Dakota gets Ember up to fireman’s carry, but Ember fights free! Ember Electric Chair lifts, pops Dakota around, LIGER BOMB! Cover, TWO! Now Ember feels the frustration as Dakota bails out. Raquel goes to Dakota’s side but Ember rushes out. Dakota gets in the ring and Raquel blocks Ember’s way. The ref is busy checking on Dakota so Raquel takes a swing, but Ember dodges boot to ROCK Raquel! Ember goes to the apron and dumps Dakota out! Ember builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit on BOTH targets!

The CWC is thunderous for “NXT! NXT!” as Ember puts Dakota in and BOOTS her! Ember hurries to a corner while Dakota is dazed! Ember goes up top, but Raquel gets in to BOOT her down!!

Winner: Ember Moon, by disqualification

Ricky Desperado doesn’t care about Dakota’s win-loss record, so long as she gets to extinguish Ember! But she’s too busy checking on Dakota and Ember attacks! But that’s a 2v1 situation as Dakota hits Ember! Ember shoves Dakota away to BOOT her! Raquel DECKS Ember now! Raquel snarls and gets Ember back up, hooks the leg, DESPERADO- STUNNER?!? Ember counters Raquel’s power and runs in, but Raquel puts her on the apron! Only to run into a HOTSHOT! Ember climbs again, for an ECLIPSE!!

The Prophecy of Flame lights the champion up and grabs the title! Ember tells Raquel to hold onto that for her until Sunday. Will the Shenom become a TWO-TIME NXT Women’s Champion after TakeOver?

 

Karrion Kross speaks.

“GENTLEMEN! You have all been afforded an opportunity to be face-to-face with me tonight. But you don’t have to wait until Sunday to feel what it’s like to get flat-lined! You think you’re going to take me out? You really believe that? Now is your opportunity to show the world what you can really do. Don’t be late. Tick-tock.” Kross and Scarlett head for gorilla, but will the end come early for someone at the end of NXT?

 

NXT returns with Kross, Scarlett and Regal in the ring.

Regal reminds Kross who the general manager is around here. Kross is champion, but he doesn’t run the brand! Regal has seen enough chaos tonight, this is NOT happening now! Kross tells Regal he doesn’t run ANYTHING. And Regal barely runs NXT, this show has been out of control for a very, very long time. Now, we’re in Kross’ world, and he’s telling Regal that he is not leaving until his four challengers show up and get their asses kicked. But Kyle shows up and says he’s right here! Now clearly the “gas station weasel,” Adam Cole, got under Kross’ skin, and Kyle doesn’t get that. Kross is the champion and the most dominant one yet, but with the thinnest skin.

Kyle can tell because it’s that vein in Kross’ forehead that is always about to burst. It is the snarling and flexing and the compensating. Kross is insecure because he knows it is a matter of time before a guy like Kyle walks down the ramp and takes the title from him! Wow, someone call a doctor because those are sick burns! Gargano enters in from the timekeeper’s area and gets up on the commentary desk to ask Kross if he’s going to let a guy in a jean jacket talk to him like that. Kross is supposed to be the biggest and baddest dude here. Well, he’s not Johnny Wrestling, and he’s definitely not Johnny TakeOver.

But Kross IS the NXT Champion. If Gargano were Kross, which he isn’t, he’d choke Kyle out right now! But be careful not to stumble over there, we all know Kross isn’t the most graceful guy in the ring. Kross tells “Johnny Mark” that if he wants to get off the desk and into the ring, Kross will show- Dunne tells Kross to shut his mouth! Dunne is sick of all this talking and waiting. The Bruiserweight wants to show everyone why HE is the baddest in NXT, and then on Sunday we can just call him champion! But then Adam Cole talks via titantron to say, “Well, well, well. If it isn’t the four chumps I absolutely humiliated last week!”

Cole isn’t about to go down there after already embarrassing them all. But in that ring, Kross is the biggest MORON of them all. Kross says he’s the champ and thinks he’s unbeatable. Cole is pretty damn sure he “beat” Kross last week with that verbal annihilation, and Kross couldn’t do a damn thing back. Kross tricks people into thinking he’s a tough guy, just cuz he wants to face all four at once. Cole sees right through that. The idea of going 1v1 with ol’ Adam Cole Baybay has Kross shaking in his boots! Kross doesn’t want the world to see Cole run circles around him! Cole doesn’t blame Kross, but will remind him that Cole doesn’t need to beat Kross to win.

Cole might beat Johnny Wrestling again, or maybe beat Pete Dunne again. Or maybe he’ll beat the guy who doesn’t even deserve to be in this match, (Kyle O’Reilly) or maybe he’ll beat Kross. Then he’ll show everyone that Kross’ reign has been one big fat disappointment. Cole will let these boys get back to their hissy fits, and see them all on Sunday. Kyle says that Cole is clearly too much of a bitch to be here tonight and kick things off early, but Kyle ain’t. Kyle gets in Kross’ face and Kross asks who Kyle is exactly. Kyle SLAPS Kross in the face! Kross DECKS Kyle, Dunne gets in and stomps Kross, and then Dunne and Kyle mug Kross together!

Security rushes the ring, but Dunne and Kyle just go after them! Kross gets to the far side, but Gargano is there! Gargano slingshot SPEARS Kyle, but Dunne fires off hands on Gargano! Gargano and Dunne brawl, Kross interrupts to DECK Gargano and TOSS Dunne! Gargano gets up but Kross TOSSES him! Security guards get in, they each get TOSSED! Kyle gets up to fire off on Kross! Kross shoves Kyle and BOOTS him down! Kross is seething, more security gets in and restrains Kross, leaving him open to Gargano’s SUPERKICK! And Dunne’s ENZIGURI! And then they throw security out! Kross is in a corner, Kyle gives him a HELLUVA KICK! Sami would be proud!

Gargano SUPERKICKS Kyle! Dunne BLASTS Gargano! Kyle ROLLING ELBOWS Dunne! Kyle roars, but Kross gives Kyle an APOCALYPSE ELBOW!! Kross grabs his title and says it is one versus EVERYONE! But wait, Cole IS here as he SUPERKICKS Kross from behind!! And AGAIN! Scarlett freaks out as Cole hits the LAST SHOT!! The Panama City Playboy just played everyone and shouts, “SAY HELLO TO THE CHAMP!” The CWC is thunderous for Cole as HE holds up the title! Cole already held this belt for over 400 days, is he about to take over and hold it for another 400?


My Thoughts:

What an amazing go-home! Not at all like how Raw tends to do them. For one, no filler of any kind. No recap packages that we don’t need because promos already take care of a lot of that, and no filler matches where it’s just copy-paste from last week. Though, I suppose Dok Hendrix didn’t need to re-hype matches he hyped before. But we got some fairly over-the-top and hilarious vignettes from Knight and Grimes to hype up DeBiase’s big news tonight, along with their TakeOver match. It is the most natural and exciting move for DeBiase to bring THE Million Dollar Championship to NXT for someone to have. I really hope Grimes wins, he really can make the most out of this because of his charisma and comedic sense.

I haven’t been the biggest fans of Legado just because Escobar overused Mendoza & Wilde in helping him in the early days of his Cruiserweight Championship reign, but I am all for this Six Man, double title match. We get Reed VS Escobar, which 1v1 would’ve been awesome, but now we can see Reed take on Wilde & Mendoza, we can see Escobar take on Lee & Carter, maybe there can be colossal tag moves from Reed and MSK. Also, it saves space on the TakeOver card. Putting the belts up like this, this match could go either way, but I can’t see Reed and Escobar being one and done. Legado wins to be golden and then Reed gets his rematch on perhaps NXT Great American Bash 2021.

The transition from the Legado-Reed-MSK segment to Hit Row with Maverick and Dain was very good. Another trio that will be coming for those same titles reminds everyone of that very mission, and then Hit Row works together to mess with Dain and help Swerve win. That is about on par with how Legado has operated, so it got great Heel heat and is showing where Swerve is in those power rankings. I am pretty sure that Dain and Drake will regroup to take on Adonis and Top Dolla, that is a great match up because they parallel each other with the big strong hoss and the smaller, faster guy, but I would think Hit Row wins there, too.

I really like that Xia Li attacking Mercedes did not cancel Mercedes’ match with, uh, whoever that was. Mercedes is proving she is tough as nails, and that TakeOver match is going to be some brutal stuff. I feel like since Mercedes stood tall here, and won way back at MYC, Xia Li wins at TakeOver. GYV of course get a win off 205 Live’s Grey & Jiro, and of course they set up a grudge match with Ciampa & Thatcher, but I really like that it’ll be Tornado Tag rules. That is going to be awesome for the post-TakeOver episode, could really go the distance if they need to fill for time, and can definitely act as the unofficial contender’s match to go after the winners of TakeOver’s Winners Take All.

Breezango had a good promo to call out Imperium in return, Ever-Rise plugging their own social media show was good, and I like that Ever-Rise used Hit Row’s catchphrase to call them out, too. Oney VS Theory was a great opener, it was also a good vehicle to get Dunne and Gargano to interact, but something about Oney using distraction to win makes sense. Oney and Dunne are the Heels fans still like to treat as Heels while Theory was getting cheered, so it gets good Heel heat for Oney and Dunne. Kyle scrapping with Kross randomly seems a bit unneeded since we all knew there would be a face-to-face segment, but I suppose it was to add to Kross saying Regal has no control of NXT anymore.

I knew even with last week that Candice accusing Poppy of just pulling a Bad Bunny meant she was going to start “pulling a Bad Bunny,” but I do like that Poppy already has a natural proxy to go with. Io Shirai brawling with Candice works on many levels, as did that moment backstage where Shirai glared at Raquel. Tying in the #InDex drama makes me think we’re getting The Way VS Shirai & Poppy, non-title, but maybe the real plan is Shirai and Poppy recruit another proxy so that Shirai and this other superstar take The Way on in a title match. At the same time, Franky Monet calling Shirai out a few weeks ago makes me think Franky will “ruin” that stuff and make a high profile feud out of it.

Ember VS Dakota was a great main event match, but I had a feeling Raquel would interfere. Dakota was losing either way so of course the Heel champion makes sure their contender gets wrecked. But Ember turns things around and stands tall, so she clearly isn’t winning at TakeOver. Then the face-off closing, it had great promos and great brawling, and I should’ve known Cole was lying about not being at the CWC. Kross stood tall until Cole knocked him down and stood even taller, so as I figured, Kross is totally pinning Cole to send him off to RawDown. Kross can fill the Summer with the other feuds, anyone’s guess as to who takes Kross out, if it’s happening at all this year.

My Score: 9.3/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO!

Six Man Tag: The Bang Bang Gang VS London Lightning, Shaun Moore & Michael Allen Richard Clark!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns are here, and these #CollisionCowboys are looking to keep up their momentum as AEW heads for Wembley. Will the Unified World Trios Champions be more than ready to go All In?

The trios sort out and the fans rally for “JUICE! JUICE! JUICE!” as he starts against Moore. Juice gives Moore a free shot, so Moore headlocks him. Juice powers up and out, tags Colten, and then Colten tags Austin. Bang Bang Gang hit a body shot, KNEE LIFT, and LARIAT! Juice adds a SENTON, then Colten SPINNING SPLASHES!

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?

 

AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

 

ROH World Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Dalton Castle w/ The Outrunners!

Death Before Dishonor is less than two weeks away, and Mark Briscoe needs himself a challenger! Two former ROH World Champions, who are no strangers to each other, do battle once again to become such a challenger. Will it be the Savior of the Backbreaker or The Peacock that faces The Sussex County Chicken in Arlington?

The bell rings, the two circle, and The Kingdom is already barking at Truth Magnum & Turbo Floyd. Roddy and Castle tie up, Castle waistlocks but Roddy wrenches. Roddy slaps Castle around and taunts him. Castle rolls away to ropes and cools of. The fans rally up, the two circle again, and Castle picks a leg to trip Roddy and gator roll him. Castle waistlocks but Roddy goes under the ropes. The ref counts and Calgary is behind Castle as he lets Roddy go. Roddy bails out and regroups with The Kingdom. Taven blocks out the Castle chants, then Roddy rushes in. Castle gets around to waistlock and wrangle Roddy!

Roddy fights up, Castle shifts, but Roddy fights off the chinlock. Castle pushes him to a cover, ONE, but Castle holds onto a leg to keep Roddy down. Roddy BOOTS Castle with the other leg! Castle bails out and he regroups with his new boys, The Outrunners. They pump up for him, and the flexing inspires him! Castle feels that energy, he starts doing laps around the ring, though staying away from The Kingdom. Castle gets in to fire off forearms and CHOPS on Roddy! Castle lifts Roddy but Roddy scrambles onto the ropes. Roddy ROCKS Castle, bumps him off buckles again and again, then goes up the corner.

Castle trips Roddy up! Castle goes to the apron, runs in from the adjacent corner, and he KNEES Roddy to the floor! The fans fire up and Castle flexes! Roddy regroups with The Kingdom again but Castle storms his way over. The Kingdom stands in his way, and Roddy sucker punches Castle! Roddy pushes Castle to the ring but Castle tiger feint RANAS! The fans fire up and Castle puts Roddy in the ring. Castle argues with Taven, old rivalry there too. The Outrunners get in The Kingdom’s faces, and they flex on ’em! But then Roddy WRECKS Castle with a dropkick! Roddy hauls Castle up to BARRIER BACK SUPLEX!

The Kingdom gloats while the fans boo, and Roddy shouts “Who’s the man now?!” while Collision goes picture in picture.

Roddy SLAPS Castle with the foam guard, then puts him in the ring. The ref has The Kingdom and Outrunners stand down. Roddy stomps Castle, drags him up, and puts him in a corner. Roddy CHOPS Castle, CHOPS again, but Castle ROCKS Roddy with a forearm! Castle CHOPS, but Roddy kicks low and fires off hands! Roddy clamps onto Castle with a chinlock and grinds him down. Castle endures, fights up as the fans rally, and he fires body shots. Castle is free, but Roddy DROPKICKS him down! Cover, TWO! Roddy clamps onto Castle with another chinlock, but Castle endures. Roddy shifts it into a CAMEL CLUTCH!

Castle endures being bent back, pries at the grip, but then Roddy fishhooks his face! The ref reprimands, The Outrunners rally as hard as they can as Castle continues to fight, but Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Roddy pushes Castle to a cover, TWO! Castle is still in this but Roddy tells him to stay down. Roddy tells fans to shut up, and he kicks Castle around. Castle goes to ropes, Roddy drags him up, and then CHOPS! Castle staggers, Roddy scuffs him, and then Roddy storms up. Castle blocks a kick to reel Roddy in for a BIG back suplex! The fans fire up as Castle roars! Castle rises, Roddy runs up, but Castle blocks a punch to DECK him! And DECK him again! And again! Roddy goes to a corner, Castle runs in to JUMP KNEE! And LARIAT! And JULIE NEWMAR BULLDOG! Cover, TWO!

Castle is annoyed but he CLUBS away on Roddy with elbows, then KNEES Roddy in the side. Castle waistlocks, but Roddy pries the hold open. Roddy ELBOWS Castle, swings, but into an EXPLODER SUPLEX! The fans fire up and Roddy rises. But Castle just hits him with another EXPLODER! And then Castle waistlocks, but Roddy grabs the corner! The ref counts, Castle lets go at 4, but then he JUMP KNEES again! The fans fire up and The Outrunners say one more! Castle goes corner to corner but Roddy dodges! Castle tumbles up and out and Taven talks trash on him. The ref tells Taven to back up.

The ring count starts, The Outrunners storm up on The Kingdom. Roddy goes to the apron to join Castle, and he waistlocks. Castle fires elbows but Roddy fires body shots. Castle clings to ropes but Roddy CLUBS him. Roddy hits an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Roddy shoves Castle in, covers, TWO! Castle shows that toughness that made him a champion, but Roddy is aiming for his head. Roddy runs up, Castle dodges, and Alabama Lift! BANGAAAA- NO, Roddy victory rolls! Castle sits on the cover, TWO!! Roddy escapes, stands up, and he runs in, but back into the Alabama Lift! BANGAAA- NO, Roddy slips free and STRONG KNEES! Cover, RODDY WINS!!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender tot he ROH World Championship)

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”

 

Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Ava. The two tie up, Nyla waistlocks but Ava fires elbows. Ava is free, she fires more shots, then winds up to ROCK Nyla! Ava runs, ducks Nyla’s lariat and wrenches, but Nyla stuffs the STO! Nyla choke grips and CHOKE SLAMS Ava! The fans fire up as Nyla storms around. Ava stands up, Nyla SPLASHES her in the corner! Then Nyla whips Ava back in, reels her in, and suplexes Ava high and hard! Nyla rolls through to deadlift and GOURD BUSTER! Ava sits up, into a SUPERKICK! Nyla fires up, reels Ava back in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

Ring rust is not a thing with Nyla Rose, and she barely broke a sweat here. Will The Native Beast make ever women’s champion in AEW and ROH her prey?

 

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

But will this dangerous trio soon become the baddest champions you’ve ever seen?

 

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots. Skye ROCKS Harley again, but Harley ducks ‘n’ dodge! DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both! The fans fire up and Cassidy puts Bennett in. Cassidy goes up top, Bennett gets under the jump. Bennett headlocks, Cassidy powers up and out, but Bennett runs him over. Cassidy UP KICKS, Bennett comes back to headlock. Cassidy powers out, ducks down then hurdles.

Cassidy spins Bennett, headlocks, but Bennett powers up and out. Cassidy tags Kyle, dodges Bennett, then puts hands in pockets before bailing. Bennett runs around and Kyle KICKS! And KICKS!

Taven apologizes and says he still doesn’t wanna fight. But then he pokes Kyle in the eyes! Taven says that is why he doesn’t wanna do this. But Cassidy runs in to tilt-o-whirl. Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett talks smack on Cassidy, goes to the ring, but Kyle catches him for a SLEEPER! Bennett JAWBREAKERS free, then waistlocks. Kyle switches, hops on, SLEEPER BACKPACK! Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS! Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

Bennett stays between Cassidy and Kyle, mocks the hands in pockets, then stomps Cassidy. Roddy is having fun now as Bennett whips Cassidy to ropes. Bennett ELBOWS Cassidy down, covers, TWO! Bennett clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Cassidy down. Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, then fires body shots. Bennett ROCKS Cassidy, tags Taven, and The Kingdom mugs Cassidy as Collision returns to single picture. But then Cassidy starts fighting back! The fans fire up as but Taven knees low. The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then whips him to ropes. POP-UP BAYONET! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

BEACH BREAK for Bennett! Cover, TWO!! Bennett survives and Roddy can’t take it! Roddy hurries to ringside but Cassidy tags Kyle. Cassidy and Kyle watch Bennett get up, but Roddy shouts at “KYYYLE~!”

Roddy tells Kyle he can’t do this to their friends! Kyle says Roddy needs to just back off. The ref tells Roddy to stop, but here’s Ishii!! Ishii YANKS Roddy down, he fires off hands! The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

The Savior of the Backbreaker is set for an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match tomorrow night on Collision against Dalton Castle. But in an occasion of turnabout is fair play, The Conglomeration is watching him from commentary! Will the presence of Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy & Mark Briscoe make Roddy better or worse than usual?

Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

The Virtuosa is served a glass of wine, and says we’ve never been formally introduced. We’ve all seen what she can do in the ring, but does anyone know what it means to be THE Virtuosa. “Wrestling isn’t just a sport or an art form, it’s both. And more set to a quickening pace than a staccato beat of bodies slamming, bones cracking, tendons tearing! All building towards a beautiful and violent crescendo.” Deonna likes what AEW has forced her to become. “Because here, actions have consequences.” And Deonna vows to burn the empire to the ground, to remake it in her own image. This is the Age of the Virtuosa.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Renee Paquette caught up with Chris Jericho, “Big Bill” Morrissey & Bryan Keith, and asks what the hell. Yes, she’s seen The Learning Tree do “a ton of horrible other things” throughout his career, but tonight with Samoa Joe crossed a line. What was he thinking? Jericho smiles, the leather belt gifted to him by Martha Hart still wrapped around his hand. He waves to the camera and says, “Hi, guys. And Renee, I don’t know why you’re so surprised. This is exactly what I’ve been saying for a long, long time. If you’ve listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. Look at The Redwood and Bad Apple.

“But if you don’t listen to The Learning Tree, bad things happen. Shibata had a chance, now his arm is hurt. Hook had a chance, we had to burn his face off with a fireball. And Samoa Joke, for years, I’ve been telling you to listen to The Learning Tree, you didn’t, we ran you through a wall, and now you’re in the hospital.” Bill is stifling a laugh this entire time. Jericho says if Joe needs something to help with his inflamed muscles he might have, try ginger and black pepper. It’s really good for you. See, Renee? Lots of lessons to be learned. And even more will be learned on Dynamite 250, with a special edition of TV Time with Chris Jericho. Thanks, guys~…!

Jericho leaves, and Bill says one of the biggest lessons that Jericho has taught them is that the more TV Time, the better. And they want as much TV Time as possible! Because The Learning Tree, The Bad Apple and The Redwood are always maximizing their minutes. She should try it some time. Keith says if you don’t respect Chris Jericho, they will MAKE you respect Chris Jericho. Will everyone in AEW learn the hard way that Jericho isn’t kidding around?

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

That could’ve been a win by knockout with that killer haymaker! But will Shane Taylor Promotions continue to rampage until they prove they prove they’re the elite of All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage, and while they shoved five matches onto this card again, they at least did their best to put story behind most of these. Roderick Strong was of course beating Ben Bishop, but they gave us a storyline plug by having The Conglomeration on commentary. And while Thunder Rosa was of course beating Rachael Ellering, they gave us story build with Deonna attacking them both. I feel like this will give us Deonna VS Ellering next, to stretch things out so that the true blowoff of Deonna VS Rosa isn’t until All In, probably in the All In Zero Hour. For that matter, that’s probably where Conglomeration VS Undisputed Kingdom 3v3 happens, too.

I’m a bit torn on the promo from Learning Tree Jericho and crew. The positive is that it was really good. I said for Dynamite that I like how the payoff is Jericho’s gone from condescending to sinister, and even Big Bill is getting into this crazy persona. The negative for me is that they kinda shoved this in here. I know we DO need to hear Jericho’s explanation, but if it was “after Dynamite,” then find a way to make it part of Dynamite. Or just leave it for Saturday Night Collision so that you aren’t already stuffing a one hour program full to the brim.

Great opening tag from House of Black VS Premier Athletes with Sterling & Woods of course getting involved, but great win for Malakai & Brody in that 4v2 situation. Still banking on them screwing over The Patriarchy during a Unified World Trios Championship match. The Six Man Tag was really good but not sure it was main event material compared to the Fatal 4 Way. Good stuff for the Six Man Tag, everyone got their shine, but that Fatal 4 Way was just incredible. Great win for Fenix to stay hot while all the titles have stories going into All In, but he could get a shot at like, Okada’s Continental Championship to give us a dream match moment before the PPV.

My Score: 8.8/10
