PLAY BY PLAY
Wolfgang VS Sam Gradwell!
Gallus wants to get back to the NXT UK Tag Team Championships, but they also have a friendly rivalry going on. The Last King of Scotland says he can handle the Thunderstorm easily, but Markus thinks otherwise. Gradwell has a mic as he makes his entrance and asks, “Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf? Not this little piggy! Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!” So Wolfgang can huff, puff, howl and growl, but Gradwell’s made of bricks. Wolfie is desperate to impress Mark Cough Drop, but Gradwell vows to rattle the jowls and wobble the kidneys of the Big Bad Yogurt! Will Gradwell actually back up his words this time?
The bell rings and the two tie right up. They go around, Wolfgang headlocks but Gradwell powers out, only for Wolfgang to run him over! BT Sports Studio cheers as Wolfgang mocks Gradwell flapping his gums. They tie up with a knuckle lock this time, have a test of strength, but Wolfgang kicks one arm and wrenches the other.

The Howler has a bloody eyebrow but he doesn’t care! Battle scars are badges of honor, especially for Gallus. Will Markus have a way to respond to Wolfgang’s friendly challenge? Will Gradwell ever learn to shut his gob?
Kenny Williams speaks.
“The NXT UK Universe has already seen what I will do to someone that I used to like. So can you imagine what I’ll do to someone that I don’t like? The best thing about everyone thinking you’re a scumbag is you can stop acting like you aren’t one.” Will the Scum of the Earth take every opening and opportunity he finds to shut Danny Jones down? We’ll see, after the break.
Superstars react to KLR VS Satomura II.
Xia Brookside says it was absolutely incredible. “We are extremely fortunate to have the best female wrestler in the world, Meiko Satomura, as our new NXT UK Women’s Champion.” It is well-deserved to Dakota Kai, she says Meiko is wrestling just as well now as she was 20 years ago. Ember Moon says Meiko is a legend and why so many women wrestlers around the world want to wrestle her as a dream match. Amale congratulates Meiko on defeating the “Forever Champion,” Kay Lee Ray, but reminds Meiko she did it at Amale’s expense. Amale still affirms she should’ve been in the Women’s Gauntlet, not Meiko. Meiko broke Amale’s hopes, so Amale will break Meiko!
Raquel Gonzalez hopes and prays that Survivor Series 2021 has some NXT USA VS NXT UK, so that she as NXT Women’s Champion can face someone as amazing and iconic and fierce as Meiko. Beth Phoenix knows Meiko has done so much around the world, this was just one of those things that had eluded her, and now she’s representing NXT UK with pride. What is next for the Final Boss now that she’s got gold?
Subculture talks backstage.
Mark Andrews says tonight is the night. Flash Morgan Webster and Dani Luna are ready, but then Joseph Conners and Jinny walk in. Conners says it’s “quaint,” and Jinny mocks it as a “pep talk.” They are all pathetic and beneath her. But then NXT UK Tag Team Champions, Pretty Deadly, walk in and want them all to take it easy. Sam Stoker & Lewis Howley cannot wait to commentate on their Mixed Tag Match tonight. Good luck, everyone. Conners says he and Jinny don’t need it. Andrews says to ignore the trash talk and take it all out on them in the ring. Jinny says they should enjoy their 15 minutes of fame while it lasts. But will the Spoiled Princess’ time in the spotlight be what runs out tonight?
Kenny Williams VS Danny Jones!
As the Chancer said himself, he won’t hold back on someone he doesn’t care about. Will “Raving” Danny Jones make him care? Better yet, will Jones make Williams regret looking down on him?
The bell rings and Williams ties up with Jones. Williams waistlocks, headlocks and grinds, then wrenches an arm. Jones powers up to SLAM Williams off!

BREAKING NEWS for next week!
The stare down from a few weeks ago has now become a showdown! Ilja Dragunov, Joe Coffey and Rampage Brown will compete in a TRIPLE THREAT! And speaking of those three…
Dragunov, Coffey and Rampage sit down to talk.
Coffey welcomes Rampage and Ilja and says it’s good to have this discussion here to get the niceties out of the way. “Because let’s face it, when the three of us step in the ring, there’s not really gonna be anything nice about it.” Coffey likes that the others are chuckling and smiling now, because he’ll say this: “It’s great to be the toughest guy here at the table.” Rampage says he doesn’t need to tell these guys what they’re in for. Coffey already knows, they’ve gone 1v1 and are 1-1 already. Dragunov knows these two have a rivalry and they don’t really like each other that much, but then they both ask him why he’s jumping into the middle of it. Why is he getting involved in their business?
Dragunov says it is for a simple and specific reason, and they need to know it. “Because I get the feeling that you guys think, and I say it with all respect, that this is your playground.” It isn’t. There are others here, and most of all, Dragunov himself. Well that’s interesting. Glasgow is one of the hardest- No, no, Coffey says it is the hardest working place in the UK. Right, right. And then for Dragunov, Russia. Then Rampage himself, Leeds, England. All hard upbringings for all of them. Of course, but that’s why they are who they are: the three toughest competitors on the brand.
Coffey acknowledges he has history with Rampage, and there’s no one he’d rather test himself against. Same for Dragunov. But he asks them this: “In that match against Walter, do you think you left a piece of yourself behind? Has it changed you? Do you think you have what it takes?” The level of noise and violence in that match, just imagine how much more there’ll be in this one. Coffey vows to beat them both and leave them in a puddle. That’s what he’s willing to do. Dragunov says Coffey’s talking about violence, but Dragunov IS violence. “Anything can happen. I hope you’re prepared for this, because I am.”
Rampage says they don’t need to do him any favors. Coffey asks why he’s saying that like he knows something they don’t. Dragunov says they should learn from him on violence in the ring. Coffey says this is the kind of fight he needs and wants. Rampage says this is what he’s all about. All three men take a moment, and Coffey says, “So let’s bring it.” All three men are battle hardened, battle tested and battle ready. But who survives this battle to back up their words? And will the NXT UK Champion be watching?
NXT UK Media catches up with Mark Coffey.
They want his thoughts on the friendly competition they’re having, and he already knows what they’re getting at. Wolfie’s one up on him, but he’s got someone to pick a fight with. Mark walks up to Sha Samuels and asks if he’s reading the newspaper. Sha says he’s trying to. Mark shouts, “EAST~!” in a way to mock Sha, and Sha tells him, “Oh shut up, ya tart!” Mark plays the parrot game and says that back to Sha. Sha says Mark can try to copy him, but he can’t beat him. Is Mark trying to get in his business? Then how about they do some business, ya mug? Sha storms off, demanding to talk to Sid Scala and Johnny Saint.
Mark says that was easy. So Wolfgang might be one-up for now, but Mark’s ready to match him. But will picking a fight with the East End Butcher only end with Markus feeling down?
NXT UK presents an all new Supernova Sessions!
“Hello, hello, hello! Hear me now, live from the moon,” Noam Dar welcomes us back to his talk show. And please allow him to announce the official drop of the brand new SPRNVA 11 shirt! “Five years in the making, and she is absolutely beautiful!” Dar has his copy framed. If you deserve it, then the Universe will serve it. And Dar deserves everything. So get yours now, and get Dar pa-pa-pa-pa-paaaid~! Speaking of big money, welcome the Irish Ace, Jordan Devlin! Devlin walks out on stage, Dar shouts at his lackey to move the props aside, and then Dar and Devlin hug. It’s great to finally have an actual superstar on this show.
Dar sits on the couch, Devlin sits in the guest chair and Dar notes Devlin is looking sharp. Most wrestlers don’t have a good fashion sense, dressing like coalminers and railroad workers. But Devlin? He’s got a way of putting something together. Are those Sergio Giorginis? Yes, they are. Dar asks what he thinks about his Gucci sneakers? #GucciGang, all the way from China. But wait, before Dar forgets, he has a present! His own copy of the SPRNVA tee! Photo op! Dar and Devlin smile for the cameras, and Dar says it’s an “extra medium” so it’ll fit Devlin.
Devlin thanks Dar but Dar apologizes. Since this talks how started, Dar’s been trying to get him a spot, but Devlin’s schedule is packed! Devlin jet sets all over the place and was tearing it up in the US of A. Tell us, how has it been? Devlin knows Dar doesn’t need to be told, they’re both high achieving individuals. Dar’s been there, done that, been to the Land of Opportunity, and now they’re both back in NXT UK cuz America sucks! They high-five over that, then fist bump, too. Dar agrees, they’re classy guys.
But to bring things back to reality, Dar was expecting Devlin to return with the NXT Cruiserweight Championship so they could have some “hardware” on the show. But Dar keeps hearing how Devlin lost their NXT Cruiserweight Championship. But Devlin didn’t lose anything. Dar knows the truth: Devlin was ROBBED of that title. “They took our precious from us. Fr-from you, your championship.” Devlin says it is so nice to hear that from someone else. And Dar is right. Just because someone runs up a ladder quicker than you, doesn’t make them the better man. Dar says Santa Claus Escobum has how many fools on his team? At least three?
And Devlin says when he returns to the states, Escobar better keep his head on a swivel, because he’s coming for him and that title. If he ever needs any help, Dar is there. But unfortunately, or maybe actually, generously, Dar says he’d make some exclusive about himself, but sometimes he pays things forward. So right here, to Devlin, Dar gives the gift of time. Devlin can make his OWN exclusive right here! Devlin is honored. Dar gives Devlin the “moon,” and Devlin steps up. “This is an exclusive for every single member of the NXT UK roster. I felt that sigh of relief from all of you when you thought the Irish Ace was gone stateside.
“But I’ve got some bad news. Because THE franchise player on this brand is back! If you want to take a shot at the Irish Ace, I’m not hard to find. You just walk backstage, find the biggest dressing room, with the gold star on the door, ‘Irish Ace’ written on it, and if you’ve got the guts, test yourself against the Ace.” Devlin and Dar fist bump and Dar says that was one hell of an exclusive. But one more bonus exclusive, go get your SPRNVA shirt on WWE Shop! Dar poses with his framed merchandise, but who will line up to face the Irish Ace in the ring?
Another big match is set for next week!
After The Boba tried to break Ashton Smith, Oliver Carter made the save. Now Carter will have to fight for his own survival as he faces Teoman 1v1! Will the Evil Eye stare through the Predator Killer and send him home to his family?
NXT UK Media catches up with Dave Mastiff.
How is training going? Pretty good, really. He feels strong, feels good. Tyler Bate and Jack Starz in the ring just behind him, and Mastiff admits they’re very good. But his own training makes him feel fit and good. He can’t argue with what’s going on. But then Mastiff checks in with Bate and Starz. They were doing good. Yeah, just some sparring. Bate says Starz is impressing him. Bate offers Starz a Heritage Cup Championship match. Starz appreciates the offer, but he wants to earn it. Bate would definitely say Starz has but if that’s how he feels. Whenever Starz is ready, the offer stands.
Mastiff also tells Starz that he’s earned his shot. Don’t turn it down, what’s the matter? Starz seems conflicted. What must Starz do to prove it to himself that he’s ready?
Nathan Frazer VS Rohan Raja!
The British Prodigy has been on a roller coaster ride, but he’s ready to fly back up. Meanwhile, the British born, Australian raised and Canadian trained Young King is back after that scary arm injury at the hands of Teoman. Which rising star shines brightest inside BT Sports Studio tonight?

Raja gets under the springboard, Frazer comes back, but Raja gets Frazer for a SCRAPBUSTER! Cover, TWO!

Frazer tumbles up, tumbles back, Raja covers, TWO! Raja wraps onto Frazer with a rear bearhug. Frazer endures the squeeze, fights his way up, but Raja SLAMS him down! Raja keeps on the squeeze but Frazer still endures. Frazer fights up, elbows free, and runs in, but Raja blocks the boot!

Raja is back in a drop zone, but he springs up as Frazer climbs! Frazer HEADBUTTS Raja down, and hits a FROG SPLASH!! Cover, Frazer wins!
Winner: Nathan Frazer, by pinfall
The Prodigy ruins the return of the Young King and looks to be building up his own legacy! But just as Frazer shows Raja respect, an Evil Eye is watching from the titantron! Is Teoman keep tabs on Raja? Or has something about Frazer caught his eye?
Jordan Devlin heads back to his private locker room.
NXT UK Media is there, hoping to talk to him, but he says, “You people are exhausting.” He said he had to say during Supernova Sessions. But then when Devlin walks inside, A-Kid is there! Did he not see the sign on the door? A-Kid apologizes, he just wanted some coffee. Well he can’t, because that’s Devlin’s coffee and this is Devlin’s room! Is it? Yes, so get your bag and your cup and get out. Oh, sorry, AK lost the Heritage Cup. Yes, he did. But Devlin lost something, too. So if Devlin wants AK to leave, make him. Make him? Do you know what Devlin will make A-Kid do? Devlin is going to talk with Sid and Saint about this. AK laughs him off, but will Devlin use his VIP status to teach AK a lesson?
Mixed Tag Match: Joseph Conners & Jinny VS Subculture!
After all the talking down and pushing around, the (Self)Righteous and the Spoiled will have to put up or shut up against those they look down on! Flash Morgan Webster represents the Mod Life while Dani Luna is punk rock strong, but will they deflate the egos of their opponents? And with Pretty Deadly on commentary, will anyone make an impression on them in terms of the NXT UK Tag Team Championship chase?
The teams sort out and Conners starts with FMW in a partial rematch from a couple weeks ago. They circle, tie up, and Conners pushes FMW to a corner but FMW turns it around. FMW lets off with a backwards roll and calls Conners out. They reset and tie up again, Conners snapmares but FMW rolls through. Conners rams FMW with a shoulder, then runs, but FMW drops down to hurdle over. FMW runs and arm-drags Conners around! FMW wrenches the arm, Conners rolls and knees low!

Jinny lets off to argue with the ref and Pretty Deadly rubs in that the shortest title reign of any kind in NXT UK belongs to South Wales Subculture, aka FMW and Mark Andrews, as NXT UK Tag Team Champions. Pretty Deadly has already surpassed those two. Jinny drags Luna up and wrenches to then wrap her up in an IRON OCTOPUS! Luna endures as Jinny pulls hair and stretches the arm.

Cover, Subculture wins!!
Winners: Subculture, by pinfall
Mark Andrews joins his team to celebrate, but Pretty Deadly will only say they did good. Subculture means little to the champs now, but will they have to watch those side plates carefully?
Another great NXT UK! Though, the one flaw and it isn’t even a big one, is that I feel like there were some gaps in continuity when it came to Devlin’s Supernova Sessions promo. Yes, he should want payback on Santos Escobar for beating him and taking the Cruiserweight Championship away, but Kushida has the belt now, and Devlin didn’t make note of that, even though he told Kushida to be ready for when Devlin returns. Ironically, Escobar’s moved on to a different title to chase, but if Devlin ever does return to NXT USA, he really should go after Escobar for like a night and then go right after Kushida.
A-Kid defying Devlin’s private locker room restrictions was an interesting way of bringing him back, but a rematch of those two will be good either way. Jack Starz getting the Heritage Cup nod from Tyler Bate and Dave Mastiff is pretty big. Starz has definitely earned his way from a jobber to an underdog contender, but that promo in the UK Performance Center makes me think Starz will want to face Mastiff first. Whether or not Starz wins, if he has a strong showing, that might convince him to take on Bate. Either that, or someone tells Starz he’s right to not think he’s ready, that guy and Starz have a match, and then pretty much the same thing of Starz gaining confidence.
Gradwell seems like the guy for that job with Starz, but he just lost to Wolfgang. It was a very good opening match, and it was a bit lost in the shuffle that this was another battle of NXT UK Founding Fathers. Wolfgang was in the original tournament, just like Gradwell and Seven, but perhaps being the third guy in Gallus overshadowed that. Mark Coffey trolling Sha Samuels into a match was clever stuff, and that is going to be a lot of fun, too. And the Triple Threat we all felt coming has come! Joe Coffey VS Rampage Brown VS Ilja Dragunov could easily be made into an NXT UK Championship #1 contender’s match, but letting it be a battle of pride and dominance is more than enough. Their sit-down discussion was a great segment, really adding to the fire we knew there’d be in the match.
Williams and Jones had a very good match, even with nothing on the line, but we’re getting a better sense of who Williams is as “The Scumbag.” Kinda hoping Williams goes for the Heritage Cup at some point. Maybe he could be the detractor to Starz’s opportunity. Teoman VS Carter next week is going to be really good, and I like that Teoman sent an indirect message to Raja and Frazer. Frazer VS Raja was a very good match, too, and it was a bit of a surprise that Raja lost. Perhaps Raja’s two major losses are a sign that he will end up Teoman’s sidekick so that they can take on Smith & Carter in a tag match at some point.
We got a great video package to show other female superstars reacting to Meiko Satomura’s win. I was hoping for more NXT UK specific stars, but Xia Brookside as the purest Face, and then Amale as having the Heel motivations against Meiko were both the right choices. The Mixed Tag Match main event was great, and it was curious to have Pretty Deadly interacting with the two teams. This isn’t a co-ed tag division, but I suppose they were mostly scouting Flash Morgan Webster and his abilities to team with someone. Subculture winning makes sense both in the story with Jinny & Joseph but also the overall tag division. FMW’s 630 is awesome, it looks so fast.
I still wonder if Jinny will add another man to her faction, but also if Andrews is still recovering, because there aren’t going to be tag matches with Pretty Deadly that way if there isn’t a second male tag partner. And I don’t see “enemy of my enemy is my friend” happening here, I don’t think Jinny would let Conners team with FMW to try and get the titles.

“Tonight on Collision, Darby, you’re challenging myself and Luchasaurus in a three way match for the TNT Championship. Let me remind you that Sting is not allowed at ringside and I don’t like your chances. We will remain the Face of TNT now and forever. Do you understand me?”
Ricky Starks speaks.
“Bryan Danielson, you have never tapped me out. I passed out. You’re talking to a guy that’s been to Heaven, so if you’re looking test God, look no further than Absolute Ricky Starks. Tonight, I put you six feet under.”
Bryan Danielson speaks.
“Ricky Starks, you’re in a lot of trouble for challenging me to a Texas Death Match. A match where to win, you have to knock somebody down and keep them down. Here’s the thing, people have been trying to keep me down my entire career, and nobody has succeeded yet. And Ricky, you sure as Hell won’t succeed tonight either.” Will the American Dragon once again slay the Absolute?
AEW TNT Championship Triple Threat: Luchasaurus VS Christian Cage VS Darby Allin!
As the Relentless One just said, this might as well be a Handicap Match, because you can bet Captain Charisma and his Right Hand of Destruction are united in destroying Darby. Will Darby even survive this match? Or will he find a way back to former glory?
The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who really wears that title after this!
The bell rings and Darby is wary of his enemies. Fans rally for Darby, but Christian bails so this turns into a 1v1 match.

But Christian pokes Darby in the eyes, and HOTSHOTS him to the floor! Luchasaurus is up and he drags Darby over to RAM into railing!
Fans rally for Darby but Luchasaurus is on him again! Luchasaurus whips Darby into more railing! Fans actually duel as Luchasaurus fetches a chair for Christian then puts Darby in. Christian soaks up the cheers and jeers, then he sits Darby in the chair to CHOKE him on the ropes! Christian stands on Darby, the ref reprimands but there’s nothing to be done in a Triple Threat. Christian drags Darby up, and CHOKES him against the chair’s back! Christian says Darby did this to himself. But then Darby throws hands! Luchasaurus CHOKES Christian, then BACK SUPLEXES him and the chair!
Luchasaurus goes to cover but Christian tells him no, they need to do more damage. Luchasaurus goes out to fetch more items, but Christian covers Darby! TWO! Darby is still in this but Christian TOSSES him out! Christian goes out to stand Darby up, and CHOPS him against the railing! Darby staggers, Christian and Luchasaurus surround him, then they double whip him hard into steel steps! Darby tumbles up and over, fans boo Christian, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Darby flops over and Christian is there to whip him into more railing! Darby staggers all around, Christian & Luchasaurus stalk him to the other corner. Christian gets the chair again to JAM Darby! And again! Darby staggers and stumbles away but Christian follows after. Christian pushes Darby into the ring, then brings him up. Christian has Luchasaurus stand back. Christian talks trash right to Darby’s face, pie faces him and smears the face pain before he CHOPS and CHOPS!
Christian tells Luchasaurus what to do, then he runs at Darby. Darby dodges to send Christian out! Darby fires off on Luchasaurus, but Luchasaurus shoves him back and HEADBUTTS him down! Luchasaurus stands on Darby’s back! Darby endures, even as Luchasaurus steps all over him! Darby crawls to a corner, Luchasaurus brings him up and Christian throws hands on Darby! Collision returns to single picture as the mugging moves to the corner. Fans boo as Christian & Luchasaurus double whip Darby into a corner. Luchasaurus runs in but Darby dodges and Luchasaurus POSTS himself!
Fans fire up as Christian runs in, Darby dodges and he POSTS himself! Roll up, TWO! Oklahoma roll, TWO! Christian kicks low to suplex, but Darby slips out, SCORPION DEATH DROP! Fans fire up as Darby climbs! But Luchasaurus drags Christian to safety! So Darby just SUPER COFFIN SPLASHES!! Fans are thunderous as both men go down!

Luchasaurus survives but Darby PENALTY KICKS!
Darby goes up to COFFIN DROP!! But Christian returns to POST Darby! Cover on Luchasaurus, CHRISTIAN WINS!!
Winner: Christian Cage, by pinfall (NEW AEW TNT Champion)
Well, at least now Christian will be rightfully holding onto this belt. Sleazy as he is, Captain Charisma truly reigns as the Face of TNT, will Darby have to move on to a new goal? As for Luchasaurus, he sees Christian’s hand be raised, and then Christian hugs him? Well, when one wins, they both win, right? Christian has Luchasaurus lift him onto his shoulders, then Christian raises the belt high above his head. Will Luchasaurus ever be his own man? Er, dinosaur.
Backstage interview with The Don Callis Family.
Alex Marvez is with Konosuke Takeshita, Sammy Guevara and Don Callis himself, and says that the wrestling world is buzzing with what we saw on Rampage. Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho are united, along with Kota Ibushi, and challenged the DCF for WrestleDream! Don says it makes him sick just thinking about Omega and Jericho on the same side, when Don is the one who put them both on the map! And now, they’re name dropping Kota Ibushi. Ibushi is a wrestling legend, but his weakness is Kenny Omega. Kenny Omega loves Kota Ibushi, they are closer than brothers, and that kind of emotion makes them weak! They always have been!
Don isn’t worried. As great as Omega, Jericho and Ibushi are, Don has Sammy Guevara, who left Jericho laying. Don has Konosuke, “The Alpha,” who earned that name when he beat Omega twice in one week! And Don has another family member. This man beat Jericho and Omega in the course of two months, and that is WILL OSPRAEY! So you want WrestleDream to become a nightmare? Don doesn’t think so. Omega, Ibushi & Jericho will face the strongest Don Callis Family ever! See you in Seattle, where they finish it once and for all!!
Backstage interview with Christian & Luchasaurus.
Collision returns as Tony Schiavone congratulates the NEW TNT Champion. Christian says yes, every legitimate title defense has solidified him as the UNDISPUTED TNT Champion! He dedicates this victory to Nick Wayne’s mom, and Nick Wayne’s late father, who must’ve been cheering Christian on from Heaven. But anyway, Christian is finally finished with Darby once and for all, bring on the next challenger! Actually, Tony Khan just announced that Christian’s first defense will be at WrestleDream in Seattle. And it will be a classic match-up. They’ve gone back and forth, so this will be BEST 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS!
Christian is furious! He storms off to find Tony Khan, but will it matter? Will Darby finally have justice against Captain Charisma?
Hook & Rob Van Dam VS Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker w/ Jake Hager & Anna Jay!
The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil just beat the former Jericho Appreciation Society members last night in a Mixed Six Tag with help from his new friends. But now he joins forces with an old friend of his dad’s! Will Hook and RVD prove they’re a one of a kind team? Or will they underestimate the sports… enner-tay-ners?
The teams sort out and fans are fired up for RVD already. RVD lets Hook start against Daddy Magic, though, and fans still rally behind Hook. They tie up, Menard arm-drags, and Menard gloats. Fans boo but Hook resets with Menard. They tie up, Hook waistlocks, hammerlocks, and he trips Menard to a facelock. Menard fights up but Hook spins and hammerlocks and headlocks and hits the takeover! Hook then goes for an arm, but Menard fights against the top wristlock.

Hook then wrenches Menard, and points to the corner! Fans fire up as Hook tags in RVD! RVD takes the handoff, he wrenches to a wristlock and fans rally up. RVD brings Menard around, arm-drags him away, but then Parker CLOBBERS RVD! Fans boo but Menard throws hands. Menard whips, RVD rolls off Menard’s back and body scissor roll-up! TWO, but RVD blocks a kick to WHEEL KICK! Parker kicks RVD, but RVD blocks the buckle bump and KICKS back!
RVD goes up to JUMP KICK! “You Still Got It!” RVD watches the ex-JAS regroup, but they get away before he can dive! So he just gets everyone to join in on a “ROB! VAN! DAM!” Hager throws a fit for his team, but Collision goes picture in picture.
RVD waits as Menard & Parker talk strategy. Menard slowly returns, talks some trash, and he seems to call out Hook. RVD obliges and tags Hook in. Hook and Menard circle, then Menard kicks low! Menard whips Hook into Parker’s boot! The ref reprimands but Menard stomps Hook around. Menard soaks up the cheers and jeers, and then distracts the ref so Parker can CHOKE Hook! RVD protests but Parker tags in to throw hands. Parker JABS, then whips Hook to DROPKICK him down! Cover, TWO! Hook is still in this while Collision goes to break.

RVD covers but Menard kicks it apart! Fans boo Menard but he brings RVD up. Menard scoops, RVD slips free and blocks a kick to step over and WHEEL KICK! Fans fire up as RVD goes to a corner. But then Anna distracts the ref and Hager has a chair! RVD dodges to KICK the chair into Hager! Hook gets in Anna’s face, Parker storms up on him, but Hook turns it around, REDRUM!! RVD goes up, takes aim, FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH!! Cover, #HookVanDam wins!
Winners: Hook & Rob Van Dam, by pinfall
Michigan’s own comes back home and wins big! Will RVD have one more title run in him? Will Hook’s newest run not be stopped?
Eddie Kingston speaks.
He has two titles to defend now, with the ROH World Championship in one hand and the NJPW Strong Openweight Championship in the other. And he knows WrestleDream is AEW’s love letter to the late, great Antonio Inoki. The Mad King wants to face the man who best embodies Inoki’s vision today, and that is Katsuyori Shibata. This won’t be just about the NJPW Openweight but also the ROH World title. He wants Shibata to bring his all because that’s what Eddie is gonna do. But then, will Eddie remain the two belt king? Or will we soon see The Wrestler become a TRIPLE CHAMPION?
The Dark Order speaks.
John Silver says, “This world has gotten outta control.” Alex Reynolds says it’s just too much, too fast, and it needs to stop. Evil Uno asks us who we will turn to “when it’s all done?” Happy music plays over destruction and desolation. “You need structure. You need rules. You need order. The Dark Order! Because The Dark Order is good! And we’re here for you!” Uno sneaks in some Italian, “But not forever.” Will you trust these creepy grins? Will you #JoinDarkOrder?
The Kingdom speaks.
Matt Taven says “Neck health is important!” Best Friends are a bunch of liars! When Trent hurt his neck, was Chuck by his bedside? NO! And now these Melvins wanna take away what The Kingdom earned, what they deserve, their shot at the ROH World Tag Team titles!? They will show these dorks what people who don’t celebrate neck health deserve! And Mike Bennett says Chuckie T got some of that last night. A punch to the wiener and a piledriver! So next Saturday is piledrivers in support of neck health! And then they will see how close Best Friends really are, how strong they really are. They aren’t stronger than The Kingdom, and they damn sure ain’t #NeckStrong!
Julia Hart w/ Brody King VS Kiera Hogan!
The Lady of the House was truly Hartless against Skye Blue last night, bringing out The Babe with The Power. However, Willow Nightingale was then attacked backstage to keep her from competing tonight! So Skye’s other friend is stepping up! Will the Hottest Flame burn this witch down? Or will the House always win?
The bell rings and Kiera rushes up to ROCK Julia! And again and again! The fans rally up as Kiera whips Julia into ropes, runs side to side and HIP ATTACKS! Kiera bumps Julia off buckles, waistlocks, but Julia bucks the O’Conner. Julia runs up to throw Kiera down by her hair! Fans rally, Julia stands on Kiera’s hair and pulls the arms! The ref reprimands, Julia steps off at 4 to then stomp Kiera down! Brody says to stay on her so Julia CLUBS away on Kiera! Julia kicks Kiera around, drags her up and SMACKS her off the mat! Julia stomps Kiera again, drags her back up, then snap suplexes! Julia grins as she then rains down fists!

Fans fire up as Kiera goes corner to corner, but Julia sends her into buckles!
Julia drags Kiera up to throw her by her hair again. Brody says keep on Kiera, so Julia whips her to a corner. BACK ELBOW! Julia grins as she snapmares, and then KICKS Kiera in the back! Julia drags Kiera up, SMACKS her off the mat, and then runs, to BLINDSIDER! Julia says the House always wins. HARTLESS STRETCH!! Kiera taps, Julia wins!
Winner: Julia Hart, by submission
A 25-0 win streak for The Lady of the House, but she isn’t satisfied! She puts Kiera back into HARTLESS!! But here comes Skye Blue! She was on the other end of this so she’s making the save now! But again, Julia hides behind Brody. But then Brody moves and Julia BLACK MISTS Skye!! Julia strikes again! Brody asks, “Do you see this? Do you see this!? This will not end! This violence will not end! 25 matches, over two dozen bodies stacked, and this will not end until we get to the one. The last loss! KRIS STATLANDER! Next Sunday, Seattle, Washington, WrestleDream, put your TBS title on the line. Or the body count continues to rise.”
But Julia wants Kris to understand: The House ALWAYS wins. Will the Galaxy’s Greatest look to end the streak? Or will the TBS Championship fade to black?
The Righteous speak.
Death walks. You dig what they’re saying? Ol’ Vincent & Dutch are pure, are divine, and are the corpse of decency nailed to a post of greed and moral decay, draped under the shadow of purity. But now they expose MJF & Adam Cole, and purify the lie that is “Better Than You, Baybay.” You dig what they’re sayin’, man?
Jay White w/ Bullet Club Gold VS Andrade El Idolo!
The Switchblade and his Bang Bang Gang called out The Face of Latino Wrestling, saying White’s reputation is more widespread than Andrade’s. Will White make Andrade famous for losing to him? Or will Andrade become famous for beating Jay White?

Sure did have a lot to say on TV. And then when I confronted you… Called you over and looked you in your eyes, you walked away. Tough keyboard warrior. You did what you always do: You ran from your problems. Guess what? You’re not gonna be able to run much longer.” Will there be a clash of the proud ‘n’ powerful on the horizon?
Shane Taylor Promotions speaks.
Shane Taylor himself says that on paper, Shane Taylor VS Keith Lee may not seem like much of a rivalry. But Keith knows better, doesn’t he? They came into ROH at the same time, established “The Pretty Boy Killers” and DOMINATED the tag division. Lee Moriarty says to tell ’em! Shane says that from ANS to War Machine to The Briscoes, they took ’em all out! But then Keith went to go work for “the other billionaire,” while Shane stayed and became an ROH legend! The world got to see Keith be limitless, but now it is Shane’s time on the biggest stage! And the only thing standing in the way IS Keith.
Shane says if it is to feed his family, then he will put Keith in the GROUND! Before Shane takes everything Keith has, Keith must step in the ring with The Best Damn Technical Wrestler, Lee Moriarty. Will #TAIGASTYLE bring Keith down to size? Or will Moriarty #BaskInHisGlory?

Aussie Open says okay, then it’s on! WrestleDream will mark the anniversary of the instant classic back at Royal Quest! Mark Davis gets a mic to say, “AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!” The fans reply “OI OI OI!” Davis says congrats, and keep those belts bright. Because FTR is in the fight of their lives! Fletcher knows Aussie Open says it a lot, but FTR once said themselves that Aussie Open is the best tag team in the world today! And they’ve heard the complaints, “What happened to the Aussie Open that took FTR to the limit in a five star classic?” Well, they admit they haven’t lived up tot he hype, but that is why they challenged FTR to this match!
Aussie Open needs to prove to to the people, they need to prove it to FTR, and they need to prove it to themselves that they ARE everything they say they are! Dax has a mic to say yeah, okay. Aussie Open were sacrificial lambs to Max and his best friend. They were sacrificial lambs to Chris Jericho and his best friend. But what Dax wants from them, what he is begging them on his hands and knees, he wants the biggest, baddest bastards in the world, because on October 1st, WrestleDream, Aussie Open faces THE BEST TAG TEAM IN HISTORY! Fans cheer that! And Dax says if Aussie Open don’t bring that, then don’t even show up. #TopGuysOut.
Backstage interview with CJ Perry.
Lexi Nair is with Miro’s hot and flexible wife, and says this is the first time we’ve seen her since she surprised everyone at All In London, which was also the first time anyone in wrestling has seen her in two years. So the question is, why now? CJ says that The Redeemer, who she loves so much, has lost his way. She wanted to help him be champion again. But unfortunately, he’s rather preoccupied with the past and… temptations. But then in steps Miro! He says his only temptation is her. And her temptation is this: the lights, the cameras, the fame. It changes you. CJ says she loves the hustle, the puzzle, the chase, and helping those she loves! It makes her come alive!
Miro says his righteous path was to save “them.” And if CJ stays, that means he’d have to… To what? Save her? What were their wedding vows again? Well, they each have to do what they each have to do. They will each walk their own paths. But if there is any love in Miro’s heart for CJ, then please, do not lay a hand on any of her future clients she’s going to manage here. Okay? Can he promise that? Miro leaves without giving an answer. Will pro-wrestling come between husband and wife?

It’s an all new QTV.
Harley Cameron asks if they wanna see her impersonation of a hot dog. Uh, sure. Harley just goes rigid. Huh. What does Joe Blow think? Uh- Johnny TV springs on the scene and says they must’ve had a great time in Montreal. Wait, Solo wasn’t invited to that. Oh, uh, that sucks. But let’s rrrroll the footage! Harley says this is awkward, but that only works when she asks for it. “RRRRRRROLL~ the footage, gov’nah!” Footage rolls of QT Marshall defending his title in Lutte Academie, the French Canadian wrestling indie. QT pounded that guy’s ass like a turkey! Oh, hey, nice sunglasses, Solo! Remember the handshake? Hecc yeah!
They do the shake, blast off, and then QT texts! He needs a tag partner for next week! Someone with fresh breath, long hair, and has known for a long time. Someone he can trust not matter what. Solo says that’s him! It has to be! No, bro, that’s Johnny! Gotta go, see you next week. Awkward… But will the combined powers of QT & Johnny be unstoppable?
Tony Schiavone is in the ring.
And he says that after Dynamite, this guy has a lot to answer for. Though, we already knew he was a snake in the grass. Ladies and gentlemen… Don Callis. Fans boo as the patriarch of the Don Callis Family walks out with “The Alpha,” Konosuke Takeshita and goes to the ring. Schiavone has to admit, Callis is many times a step ahead, and he is eating up how the fans all around the world just HATE him! Schiavone says Callis deserves all of it. Callis takes the mic and fans boo as he says just wants to say… “A few weeks ago, the wrestling world was abuzz! The wrestsling world was abuzz at my so-called pursuit of Chris Jericho.
“I didn’t end up with Jericho, but I ended up with the man I really wanted, the newest member of the Don Callis Family… SAMMY! GUEVARAAA~!” The fallen Spanish God makes his way out now, dressed to impress. Fans boo more as Sammy joins his “family” in the ring. Sammy soaks up all the heat, but Schiavone asks, “You actually call this man family?” Sammy says he can’t hear Schiavone, but that might be from all the booing. Sammy tells Don, “Believe it or not, I hated you. I hated you for a long time.
“I hated you almost as much as they hated you. And it’s because this whole time, I thought you were trying to rip apart my family. But really, you were just trying to show me I never really had one. Until now!” They hug and fans boo more. Sammy says why did he betray Jericho on Wednesday? The reason is because for the past four years, he has been holding Sammy back! Jericho has taken Sammy for granted, just like all the fans have! Fans boo more but Sammy says yeah, yeah, yeah. Last year, it was “F YOU SAMMY!” Earlier this year, it was “LET’S GO, SAMMY!” Well Sammy is done with such fickleness! He doesn’t need the fans!
Sammy is done trying to earn the fans’ love. He has a hot, hot wife, a beautiful baby girl and a fat bank account! Fans boo Sammy but Sammy says Jericho is DEAD to him, and never wants to see him again! But wait! Judas plays and fans fire up! Jericho is here, and he rushes the DCF! Jericho DECKS Konosuke, ROCKS Sammy, fires off on Konosuke again to TOSS him out, then he ROCKS Sammy! Sammy scurries away but Callis CLUBS Jericho! Jericho scowls at Callis and fans say Callis F’d up now! But Konosuke returns to SMACK Jericho with a chair! And again! And again! And again!!
Fans boo but then Sammy has Konosuke stop. Because Sammy takes the chair to SMACK Jericho now! And again! And again!! Sammy unleashes that resentment and rage! Konosuke drags Jericho up, Sammy helps, and Callis tells Jericho this is what he gets! Callis throws punches, but hurts his own hand! So he brings out the SCREWDRIVER!! Fans freak out, but here comes KENNY OMEGA!! The Cleaner is back, with a metal pipe!! Omega runs the DCF off and fans are thunderous! Jericho staggers up to his feet and he bumps into Kenny. Both men are on guard, but upon seeing who it is, Jericho cools off.
Omega drops the pipe, and he nods before leaving. Will Omega and Jericho see that the enemy of their enemy is truly a friend in the fight against the treacherous, disgusting and conniving Don Callis?
Rampage returns as Alex Marvez finds Kenny Omega.
Marvez says Omega and Jericho, in the same ring together, working together against Don Callis! Kenny stomps Marvez there. Do they really think Kenny did any of that for Jericho? That he cares about Jericho? This is bigger than Jericho! This is about Kenny taking care of Callis. But then Jericho walks over. Jericho tells Kenny that he says this once: he appreciates Kenny making that save, but he also knows the reason it happened. Just as Kenny was saying, this is not about them becoming friends. This entire company was based on the Omega VS Jericho rivalry. But now, something that Callis never thought would happen: Jericho and Omega are UNITED in taking Callis out!
The match Callis put together in Tokyo, it is now a nightmare come to life. And as far as Sammy goes, he is the real Judas. But so Jericho suggests they team up for real and take out the Don Callis Family, at WrestleDream! Omega tells Callis that he stabbed Omega in the back, betrayed his best friend in Jericho, and threatened someone Kenny loves in Kota Ibushi. That scar on Callis’ head that he blames on Omega, after they’re done with him, Callis will look like Freddy Krueger. WrestleDream, October 1st, will become a Wrestle Nightmare. DCF VS Jericho, Omega and Ibushi! Who you got?! They’ll be waiting.

Mike Santana speaks.
“Now it’s time for you to understand what this all truly means to me. Going away for this injury was the easy part. Handling what goes on in here (the heart) and up here (the mind) was the hard part. That was the true test. I spent 30 DAYS staring out a treatment center window, wondering just where my life went. And I realized I’ve survived way too damn much to just piss it all away. And here I am, for the world to see. And I’m hungrier than ever. Everybody is food. You get in between me and my money, I will put you down. You get in between me and feeding my daughter, I put you down.
“And realize this: Whether it’s here, whether it’s anywhere, I’m gonna get mine. If you don’t like it, you fight me or fire me! But you have two options: Either get down, or lay down.” There is a fire raging inside Mike Santana, will he use it to blaze a trail to the top of the mountain?
AEW World Trios Championships: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS The Dark Order!
While everyone loves the diss tracks and the scissor fingers and the bright colors, it would seem Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds & John Silver would have us believe Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass are the bad guys in all this. But if they’re the heroes of this story, does that mean the Dark Order will prevail? Or will they fail to end the Scissoring World Tour?
But speaking of a diss track…! “Acclaimed on the mic, and it sounds so pretty. Damn it feels good to be in New York City! Oh my God, the Dark Order! The number one cure for a sleep disorder! The group is smaller than I remember. Now we gotta fight against the three worst members! And we beat you down proper. Have all y’all laid up like Aaron Rodgers.” Ouch… But Bowens takes the mic to shout, “NEW YOOORK CITAAAAY~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! But will those scissors cut down The Dark Order before they ever rebuild?
The trios sort out and Caster starts against Reynolds. The fans rally up and sing “OH~ Scissor Me Daddy~!” Caster and Reynolds circle, tie up, and go around. Reynolds waistlocks, throws Caster down, then pulls on an ear to get a headlock. Caster fights up, throws body shots, and then headlocks back. Reynolds powers up and out, but Caster runs him over! Caster says “SUCK IT!” then runs, but Reynolds hurdles. Caster BACKHANDS Reynolds! And says “SUCK IT!” again! Reynolds runs in, but into an arm-drag! Caster keeps on the armlock but Reynolds fights up. Reynolds puts Caster in the corner and Silver tags in.

Mark Henry welcomes us back to Rampage.
“Tonight, Swerve’s Mogul Embassy, and Hangman Adam Page & The Young Bucks now come to a head as the ROH Six Man Championships hang in the balance. Well, it looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s TIME for the main event!” Will Brian Cage, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona continue their reign of terror? Or will Matt, Nick & The Cowboy have these belts for a second time?

Hangman snarls at Swerve but Swerve and his fur coat stay on stage. Nana does his dance, though!
Hangman steps out to the ramp to stare Swerve down but Swerve just blows him a kiss. The Gates CLOBBER The Bucks! Kaun & Lona get Matt up, Cage coordinates with them, ROCK-A-BYE BOMB!! Cover, Hangman breaks it in time! Liona TOSSES Hangman out, then Cage deadlift SUPERPLEXES Nick! The Gates fires each other up, then Kaun whips Liona in. Matt ELBOWS Liona away!

Cage gets Hangman up, DRILL- VICTORY ROLL!! THE HUNG BUCKS WIN!!!
Winners: The Hung Bucks, by pinfall (NEW ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions)
The Elite wins big, but Hangman goes right back to glaring at Swerve! Pyro goes off to celebrate The Hung Bucks becoming TWO-TIME Six Man Tag Team Champions, having ended one of the most dominant trios in either AEW or ROH! But this doesn’t change what is coming. Hangman and Swerve will put pen to paper on Wednesday to make their WrestleDream match official. Will Swerve’s House have something waiting for the Cowboy in Colorado?
A great two hours for Rampage here, though I am not going to advocate for this being a regular thing. Great opening tag from Darby & Sting VS Christian & Luchasaurus, and I like that Nick Wayne costs Christian this match. Darby taking on Christian and Luchasaurus in that TNT Championship Triple Threat which will really is a handicap match could also be a way to hand the feud off to where Christian has matches with Nick Wayne over this “Your dad is dead, I will be a better dad” gimmick. Now I don’t know if that means Darby wins the title or not, but it feels more likely he loses since Christian and Luchasaurus are going to work together.
Great Mixed Six but of course Kris & OrangeHook win. This was the first outing of Cassidy & Hook as a team, so they weren’t going to lose, and certainly not to the former Jericho Appreciation Society. And while Hook is FTW Champion, this does feel like they’ll eventually make it to some tag title match so that Cassidy can add to his resume. Great Fatal 4 Tag, but The Righteous winning was a big surprise to me. I thought WrestleDream would be when they pull the trigger on The Kingdom VS MJF & Cole and that pushes things towards a brochacho break-up. Seems not, they might be saving that for Full Gear in LA. And Kingdom might bide their time with a feud with Best Friends.
Good promo from Callis and Sammy, and really good stuff with Jericho going after them all, and then Kenny making the save. I was a little confused as to where Kota Ibushi was supposed to come into this until Jericho made the challenge of a Six Man Tag a la All In London. But at the same time, it prompts the Don Callis Family to grow, as it should, and maybe Callis keeps it a surprise until WrestleDream. Really good promo from Mike Santana before he of course beat Bronson, and I really like that Ortiz appeared. People have been wondering how much shoot and how much work we’re seeing in their social media exchanges, but I would think this hints at it being more a worked shoot, playing off the tension that has perhaps already been resolved.
Really good AEW Trios title match, with Dark Order looking good in their new gear, white with purple highlights. But I figured The Acclaimed would retain, they’re not losing on TV. Good match from Skye VS Julia, and Julia winning was only a slight surprise given all the momentum Skye’s been building. But Willow making the save was good stuff, and I really do think we need someone to be feuding with Willow over her winning the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Should’ve been doing that the whole time, but whether it’s AEW or ROH, Tony Khan’s got the book and we’ve all talked about those issues.
And a great main event for the ROH World Six Man titles, but with how fast and furious the Hung Bucks were going at the start of the match, I really thought they were losing. Swerve showed up, he could’ve easily screwed Hung Bucks over, but he was putting it on Hangman to mess things up and that actually cost The Mogul Embassy. I was talking this whole time about how that kinda buries ROH, and unless The Hung Bucks show up on like next week’s ROH episode, I still hold to that. Adam Cole & MJF haven’t been on ROH TV even though they’re the tag champs, so it just makes ROH seem like an afterthought despite them constantly using the various ROH champions on AEW programming. And if The Hung Bucks beat the near unbeatable Embassy, who is even going to beat the Bucks without cheating so, so hard?
