10 Man Elimination Tag Title Eliminator: The Super Elite VS Hangman Page & The Dark Order!

Fans go nuts as Hangman Page has an opening vignette. “What is it that makes a cowboy? It’s not the boots or the buckle. It’s not the chaps, it’s not the jeans. It’s not the lasso or the cattle. It’s not the horse or the saddle. You might think they’re all long gone, but you don’t need a hat to be a cowboy. A cowboy isn’t too busy to lend a hand to a partner. Not to proud to take one, either. And when they get knocked to the dirt, bloodied and trampled, a cowboy dusts themselves off and gets back up. And they’ll stand by their partners and challenge those who have it all. And they’ll keep riding ’til they find inner peace.”

Spotlights go up one at a time to reveal Colt Cabana, Alan Angels, Preston Vance, Evil Uno, Stu Grayson, John Silver and Alex Reynolds. And up the middle is Hangman himself! The posse rolls together to the ring as Hangman wears the Dark Order purple and black! But now, “The starting line-up for your world champion Elite Squad!” At guard, Karl Anderson! The man in the middle, Doc Gallows! Forwards, Nick “Trick Shot” Jackson and “Mr. Instant Replay,” Matt Jackson! And the only person from NOOOOORTH CAROLINA, Kenny “Air” OOOOOOOOOMEEEEGAAAA! So they’re Space Jamming now? And they run through the banner to do slam dunks in the honestly non-regulation hoop. But will Hangman and his partners create their own new legacy?

The teams sort out and Hangman starts. Omega says if Hangman wants him, he’ll have to wait! Fans are thunderous for “COWBOY S*IT” as Anderson steps to Hangman. Anderson and Hangman tie up, Hangman headlocks but Anderson powers out, only for Hangman to run him over. Things speed up, Anderson leaps but into Hangman’s arms for a FALL AWAY SLAM! Fans fire up even more but the Bucks talk trash, and that allowed Omega to blindside Hangman! But the Dark Order rushes in and it is chaos! There’s brawling all over, The Elite get control and Gallows mugs Stu. The Elite call for it, but the Dark Order hits QUADRUPLE PLEXES!

The Elite bails out, the Dark Order chases after, and Reynolds climbs up. Nick goes after him but Reynolds trips him up! Reynolds gets Nick up to SUPERPLEX out onto everyone! Fans are thunderous as they lose their minds over that shot from downtown! Hangman gets Anderson up and into the ring, CHOPS him, and tags in Reynolds. Reynolds goes after Anderson but Anderson kicks back and EuroUppers. Anderson whips, “Get ‘im, boys!” Matt runs screaming in to clothesline! Nick runs screaming in to clothesline! Omega runs to JUMP and back elbow! Anderson runs in to uppercut! Gallows runs in but misses! And the rest of Dark Order drags the others out!

STUNNER TO GERMAN, JACKKNIFE! Cover, but Gallows saves it! Gallows swings on Reynolds but is sent out with a clothesline! Anderson rolls Reynolds holding tights!! Anderson ELIMINATES Reynolds!! Fans boo as The Elite Squad gloat and celebrate. Uno steps up, though, and he calls the Machine Gun out.

But then Anderson doesn’t see the Dark Order trip up The Elite again! He’s alone with Uno, Stu, Silver and Hangman! Anderson tries to use his dance moves to diffuse the situation, but he ends up in a Dark Order pinball machine! Then a FATALITY!! Cover, Uno ELIMINATES Anderson!! Matt runs in but Uno throws forearms! Uno bumps Matt off buckles, Stu keeps him near and Silver tags in to mug Matt. Silver bumps Matt off buckles, fans are fired up to see Silver TOSS Matt across the ring! He’s freakin’ jacked, baby! Brandon Cutler hurries with the cold spray but Silver TOSSES Matt the other way!

Cutler again cools Matt down but Silver puts him in the corner as AEW goes picture in picture. Stu tags in, then tags Uno. They get Matt up but Matt throws forearms on them both! But he gets popped up into Electric Chair, then tossed into a POWERBOMB! Cover, Omega breaks it! Hangman is furious but Stu gets Matt back in the corner. Tag to Silver, they stomp and punch Matt and fire off forearms. Silver snapmares Matt then KICKS him in the chest! And again! And… CRANE KICK! Silver is fired up, he gets Matt over to the corner and Stu tags in, but both he and Uno mug Matt. Stu springboards for the elbow drop sidewalk slam! Cover, but Nick drags Stu away!

The Dark Order protests but the ref tells them to go back to their corner. Stu gets Matt back up and in an open corner to CHOP him! And whip him corner to corner, but Matt reverses, only for Stu to rebound and CLOBBER Matt! Stu keeps between Matt and the Elite, and then drags Matt back up. Stu CHOPS Matt off his feet! Matt sits up and sputters, glares at Hangman, but Stu CHOPS and forearms him! And then torture racks, but Matt fights off! Matt CLUBS away on Stu, CLAWS his back, and tags in Gallows. Matt holds Stu up, Gallows runs, but Stu switches! Gallows stops before he boots Matt, and Matt switches back, so they try again. Stu ducks and Gallows BOOTS Matt!

The Elite all stand together as they dare Hangman to get in. Hangman watches them but Omega says they should do this properly. Omega goes back to the corner, tags in, and now Hangman has his 1v1 with the champ. Omega throws the Space Jam jersey off and talks trash with Hangman. Omega SPITS at Hangman, so Hangman fires hands! They brawl, Hangman gets the edge and runs, but into a V-TRIGGER! Omega runs, but into a ROLLING ELBOW! Hangman fires up and runs, but into DOUBLE SUPERKICKS from the Bucks! Omega hits a SNAP DRAGON!

Winners: The Super Elite, by pinfall; Kenny Omega and Nick Jackson are the survivors

Hangman put up the most valiant effort of AEW history, but he and the Dark Order could not defeat The Elite! And now, they have no clear route to the titles! Is there no stopping Omega and the Bucks in their reigns of terror?

 

Backstage interview with PAC.

Alex Marvez points out that this was meant to be a Death Triangle interview, but obviously the Lucha Brothers aren’t here. No, no, no. That’s where you’re wrong! Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero M are here, but the lads are stuck at the airport because someone has cancelled their car ride here. Pac wonders who that could be. And with that, Andrade El Idolo and Chavo Guerrero walk in and sarcastically compliment Pac. Pac looks great but is lonely. The Lucha Bros are having trouble? Well that’s alright, Andrade’s people can get Pac’s people a limousine. Oh sorry, Pac probably doesn’t know what those are. Limos are like really long cars that people ride in.

So the Lucha Bros are on their way, and in style! Chavo promises. Andrade tells his “little friend” he should learn to drive, and also learn that there are people out there just better than him. Because if Pac doesn’t, the Lucha Bros could always work for someone else. For who? Who knows. Andrade heads out, but will Fenix & Penta stay loyal to The Bastard?

 

Taz is on a special platform.

Ladies and gentlemen, the moment you’ve all been waiting for! Give it up for the NEW FTW World Champion, from New Orleans, Louisiana, it is Absolute Ricky Starks! Starks and the rest of Team Taz head out and there’s a New Orleans brass band playing him to the ring with The Saints Go Marching In! There’s even a young lady to give Starks a bouquet of roses and a kiss! Orange roses to match the title? Starks lets Hook hold onto the flowers as he gets a mic. Give it up for the band there, they were great. If Hobbs was here, he’d be loving it, but the Powerhouse is recruiting.

But two weeks ago, history was made in Austin, Texas when Starks became the NEW FTW Champion, and got rid of the garbage that is Brian Cage. Now listen up, Cage. Starks has been the glue and the anchor of Team Taz because he knows his part. Starks can let certain things slide, like when Cage was in the back vanity searching himself and trying to befriend every Tom, Dick ‘n’ Harry online while Starks was covering up the problems Cage caused. Starks can forgive that, he’s a good man. And when Cage was costing the team matches, that Starks can forgive. But what Starks can’t forgive and forget is that when Starks broke his neck, Cage didn’t even check up on him!

And when Cage didn’t check up on Starks, Starks realized Cage is just selfish, inconsiderate and doesn’t know what “Teamwork” means. Starks does! Starks also knows what it is to be a star, something Cage has been trying to figure out for the past 17 YEARS. “And when they stood you next to me, you still couldn’t get an ounce of charisma to rub off on you!” Week after week, Cage- Wait, Cage is heading out now! Starks grows very worried, as does Taz. Cage CLOBBERS the band! He takes the bass drum and SMASHES it on the drummer! And he takes the trombone into the ring to BREAK it! Starks throws the roses at Cage and runs away!

Cage glares as Starks and Hook get up the ramp to the stage. Will The Machine look to absolutely crush Starks and take back the FTW title?

 

AEW hears from NJPW’s Ace!!

“This is New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Master of the Century, Hiroshi Tanahashi. I’ve gotta say, the IWGP US Heavyweight Championship has quite a charm to it. I’ve won a lot of titles in my career so far, but I’ve never been the US Champ. So I’ll be challenging the winner of tonight’s title match! And I’ll be taking that title in a snap.” Big news and a big challenge issued by Tanahashi! Will it be the Murderhawk Monster or Bullet Club’s towering Tongan that gets to accept it?

 

Santana & Ortiz w/ Konnan VS FTR w/ Tully Blanchard!

This has been going on for months within the Inner Circle VS Pinnacle war, but now the battle of NYC VS NC finally has it out 2v2! Will Proud ‘n’ Powerful put Dax & Cash down in their hometown? Or will FTR #SayYeah to a big win between two Top 5 AEW tag teams?

AEW goes picture in picture as Dax bumps Ortiz off buckles. Tag to Cash, FTR mugs Ortiz in the corner! The ref counts, Dax lets off at 4 and Cash gets in to bring Ortiz up to a headlock.

AEW returns as Ortiz rolls and ENZIGURIS Cash down! Fans fire up as both men crawl, Dax tags in again to again whip Ortiz away. But Ortiz comes back to CLOBBER Dax! Fans rally, Ortiz rolls to tag Santana in! Santana rallies on FTR, BOOT for Cash and forearms for Dax! Santana whips Dax, Dax reverses but Santana dodges in the corner to get him up for a back suplex SLAM! Then a catapult into the corner! Dax bounces off post, Santana FLIES to take out Dash!

Santana whips, Dax reverses and clotheslines in a corner! Dax runs but Santana follows to clothesline him back!

Santana whips Dax back the other way, Dax comes back to clothesline! Santana stays up, roars, and reels Dax in for a GERMAN! Dax is right up, he roars and LARIATS Santana!

The medics check on Cash’s arm, it is bleeding! But Dax handles PNP well enough, will FTR move on from them to go after the Young Bucks again?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Britt Baker & Rebel.

The AEW Women’s World Champion says that Nyla Rose has proven twice now that she does break bitches. But unfortunately for Nyla, Britt is the Baddest Bitch on the Block, and she made the Native Beast tap out with a broken freakin’ wrist! And Britt isn’t dumb, she keeps getting hurt. Reba/Rebel got hurt because she keeps protecting Britt from everyone gunning for her. So Britt says it is appropriate to find someone to help cover them both, because it sure as hell isn’t any of the fans.

Everyone watching live and at home, as long as Britt wears the title, they wear jealousy. You’re all sitting there, holding your breath, waiting for her to fail. You’re going to suffocate. Yours Truly, Britt Baker, DMD. But if Britt’s ego keeps growing, will it just make the target on her back bigger?

 

AEW returns with Schiavone on the stage.

“It is great to be back home in Charlotte, North Carolina. Fans, we have a very special announcement on behalf of Tony Khan and AEW. As you know, Rampage will debut on Friday night, August 13th. We now have another special announcement for Rampage. The very next week, Friday, August 20th, Rampage comes to Chicago at the United Center, for ‘The First Dance!'” Tickets on sale this Monday! Fans chant “CM PUNK!” in hopes that Chicago’s own will be there for that. Schiavone then throws it over to Alex Marvez backstage.

 

Marvez interviews Darby Allin & Sting!

He brings up the huge news about AEW going to Chicago for #TheFirstDance, and Darby says he’ll be there. Darby’s been around a lot of men in the world who have claimed to be the greatest. There’s only one place to really prove that: right here in AEW. “Even if you think you’re the Best in the World.” A not so veiled challenge from the Relentless One! Will Darby look to test himself against a certain straightedge?

 

IWGP United States Championship: Lance Archer w/ Jake the Snake Roberts VS Hikuleo!

The Ace has made it known he wants a shot at this title! But after that hellacious Texas Deathmatch with Jon Moxley, the Murderhawk Monster is ready to topple even a towering Tongan! But Hikuleo has a surprise for us all: his father, KING HAKU, is here! Will having one of the toughest men in the business in his corner help Hikuleo take this title and go after Tanahashi?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and it’s like Clash of the Titans in Carolina!

The two get face to face to stare the other down. Hikuleo is taller but Archer can still reach him with a choke grip! Hikuleo choke grips back but Archer breaks free to BOOT Hikuleo away! Archer back elbows in the corner, runs corner to corner, and back elbows again! Archer keeps going to hit another back elbow! Fans fire up as Archer climbs up and rains down fists! Hiku stops that at 5 to SIT-OUT BOMB! Cover, TWO! Archer survives, Hiku talks trash and gets Archer up to throw forearms. Hiku fireman’s carries but Archer fights off to ROCK Hiku with a right! Archer tells Hiku he ain’t nothing, then ROCKS him more! Archer runs, into a SPINNING POWERSLAM!

Hiku gets Archer up to ROCK Archer with a forearm! Archer hits back but Hiku knees low. Hiku SMACKS Archer off railing, swaggers about, but he brings Archer around to whip, only for Archer to reverse! Hiku hits railings HARD, and Archer fires up! The ref wants this to get in the ring, Archer drags Hiku up and ROCKS him with a right hand. And DOUBLE CHOPS him against railing! Hiku fires up but Archer CHOPS and CLUBS him down! Archer puts Hiku in the ring, but Haku is there to go after him! Choke grip and a RAM into the railing! Hiku keeps the ref from seeing all this and Haku gets away.

Archer slowly gets up but Hiku goes out after him. Hiku stands Archer up to CHOP him against railing! Archer staggers, Hiku chases after and CHOPS him against apron! Archer CHOPS back, gets in the ring, but Hiku pursues. Hiku kicks Archer, scoops him and SLAMS him! Hiku looms over Archer, Haku coaches him, and Hiku gets Archer up. Archer hits back so Hiku stomps him down! Hiku gets Archer back up and aims his finger gun as AEW returns to single picture. Archer grabs at Hiku’s face but Hiku headbutts him! Hiku CHOPS Archer, runs, but Archer follows to CLOBBER him! Hiku gets up and runs at Archer but Archer BOOTS him!

Archer wants the inverted crucifix, brings Hiku out, and BLACK OUT BOMBS! Cover, Archer wins!

Winner: Lance Archer, by pinfall (still IWGP United States Champion)

#EverybodyDies, but retaining his title means Archer gets to aim at the Ace! Will the Once in a Century Talent be able to overcome the Murderhawk Monster and add this title to his incredible résumé? Or will Archer add Tanahashi to the list of great talent he has toppled?

 

Alex Marvez interviews Cody Rhodes.

The American Nightmare is backstage at the gorilla position, and gets off his headset as Marvez brings up Dynamite Homecoming, Cody VS Malakai Black. Cody says, “So much happening in our world-” MALAKAI ATTACKS! He DECKS Cody right next to Tony Khan, then drags him up to bring him around and throw into road cases! Cody hits back but they brawl up the steps towards the stage! Fans fire up as this brawl ends up ringside! Cody hits the Rhodes Uppercut! But Malakai gets right up to KNEE Cody down! Fans are fired up for “MALAKAI!” as he crouches by Cody. “You hear them? Welcome to the House of Black.” Will the Dark Father end the American Nightmare at Daily’s Place?

As Malakai still stands over Cody, security and other wrestlers run out to check on Cody. Malakai grabs Fuego Del Sol to give him a BLACK MASS!! Referees shout at Malakai to leave but he stays on stage, watching Fuego and Cody menacingly. Will there be anything left of Cody after Dynamite’s Homecoming?

 

Miro speaks.

“The TNT title is known for giving an open challenge. But ever since I won it, suddenly all these challengers have dried up. But next week, God’s Favorite Champion will fight! But not because Lee Johnson asked for it, but rather he was tricked with prizes and competitions.” Miro sees Johnson’s talent, but he cannot take Miro’s divine right away from him! No one can, and we all know it! Miro is a simple man that is motivated by two things: a vengeful God and a double jointed wife. So if you think you have what it takes, you can run away or face Miro like a man. But either way, a glorious reckoning is upon you! This is the word of the Redeemer!

 

QT Marshall sends a note to Schiavone.

Despite how adamant The Factory’s leader was about apologizing to Schiavone for pouring the protein shake on him, QT has decided to wait until next week. That way, the entire Schiavone family could be there to witness the apology. How “benevolent” of him, but will QT actually follow through for Dynamite’s Homecoming?

 

Six Man Tag: Christian Cage & Jurassic Express VS The Hardy Family Office w/ Matt Hardy!

Captain Charisma has had it up to here with Big Money Matt and his moneygrubbing minions, so he is teaming up with Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus to take the fight to the HFO! Will Christian, JB and the wrestling dinosaur make Angelico & Private Party pay for everything they and Hardy have done?

The trios sort out, Christian steps up and starts with Angelico. Fans rally up, Angelico and Christian approach, but Angelico kicks low to waistlock and spin Christian to hammerlock and hip toss! Christian gets up as Angelico swaggers, but Christian keeps cool. Christian and Angelico tie up, Christian wrenches, but Angelico uses ropes to flip through, only for Christian to ROCK him with an uppercut! Christian DECKS Angelico, tags in JB, and fans fire up as they double whip and double hip toss Angelico down! JB covers, ONE! JB keeps on Angelico with a wrench, Angelico spins but JB wrenches again to keep the wristlock.

JB knuckle locks, CHOPS, and goes up and up and around to arm-drag Angelico away! Angelico gets up but into a dropkick! Fans fire up as JB goes after Angelico. Angelico throws JB at ropes and Isiah Kassidy holds them open so JB tumbles out! JB gets up to trip Kassidy off the apron and throw him into railing! But Angelico distracts the ref so Hardy can SUCKER PUNCH JB! Christian chases Hardy, as does Marko Stunt! They chase Hardy out of ringside but Kassidy puts JB in.

Winners: Christian Cage & Jurassic Express, by pinfall

Stunt returns to celebrate, and Christian hugs it out with his teammates. Will Christian’s undefeated streak continue until HE is the #1 contender? But wait, BLADE sucker punches Christian with brass knuckles! Big Money Matt applauds his mercenary taking the initiative, did Blade just cut down Christian’s run?

 

AEW hears from Nick Gage.

“Chris Jericho, what do you think you’re gonna do to me tonight that hasn’t been done to me before? Barbed wire, light tubes, I’ve been through it all! And I’m here tonight to make sure you don’t see labor number three. Because I’m the Deathmatch King! I’m gonna leave you in pain! I’m gonna leave you all cut up! You’re gonna look in that mirror and you’re gonna know that Nick Gage did that to you. You are gonna be feeling pain for the rest of your life! MDK, all day!”

 

Thunder Rosa VS Julia Hart w/ The Varsity Blonds!

La Mera Mera is finally All Elite, but that only means the real work begins! Will she take the two-time World Cheerleading Champion seriously and add her to the win streak?

The bell rings, the two circle, and fans rally for Rosa. Rosa and Julia tie up, Rosa headlocks and hits a takeover. Julia moves around and headscissors but Rosa kips free. They go again, Rosa headlocks but Julia fights up. Julia powers out, things speed up, and Rosa rolls Julia to a cover, TWO! Julia turns around into a sweep, cover, ONE! Julia sweeps, covers, ONE! The two stand off and fans cheer. The two circle as Julia waves to the fans and gets them to rally up. But Rosa rolls and picks a leg to trip her up! ANKLE LOCK! Julia scrambles, gets the ropebreak, but Rosa lets off. The Blonds coach Julia but Rosa is on her with forearms! And a CHOP!

Rosa bumps Julia off buckles, CHOPS her, then COHPS her again. Rosa whips Julia corner to corner and runs in to hit an A-List Lariat! Julia is down, Rosa goes up, SWINGING DOUBLE KNEES! Fans fire up as Rosa digs her boot into Julia. The ref counts, Rosa lets off and she gets Julia back up to throw forearms! Julia sputters, Rosa lets off as the ref counts, and Rosa goes corner to corner again, but Julia dodges the dropkick! Julia gets up, runs in, handsprings to a lariat! Julia headlocks but no bulldog, Rosa trips Julia to a KNEEBAR! Julia endures, crawls, reaches, and gets the ropebreak! The ref counts, Rosa lets go at 4.

Julia stands, Rosa runs in, gets around, but Julia elbows hard! Rosa holds on to RAM Julia into a corner! Rosa goes corner to corner to basement dropkick! Fans fire up as Rosa gets Julia up, scoop and FIRE THUNDER DRIVER! Cover, Rosa wins

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall

And with that, Rosa is truly ready to be All Elite! But will she become the AEW Women’s World Championship in the near future?

 

AEW has more in store for Dynamite Homecoming!

Not only will Malakai take on Cody and Miro defend his TNT Championship against Big Shotty Lee Johnson, there will be an NWA Women’s World Championship Contender’s Match! The Bunny takes on #LEGIT Leyla Hirsch, the winner moving on to take on Serena Deeb! Then, after that blindside attack, The Blade must now face Christian Cage fair and square! Matt Hardy has Blade’s back but Jungle Boy has Christian’s! Will Captain Charisma break The Blade’s edge as AEW returns to Daily’s Place?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“Last time you saw me, I was crawling out of a pit of barbed wire well. That’s all good, that’s easy money, that’s not what I’m here to talk about. I’m here to talk about last night, when I’m sitting at the airport bar, and I look up at the TV and I’m watching the Olympics, and I wonder, ‘How the hell did the French and the Croatian water polo teams get into Japan when I can’t?'” Moxley has business in Tokyo, from challenges going unanswered to his contracts being sent back unsigned to phone calls being unanswered.

And then the second Moxley no longer has the IWGP US Championship around his waist, now Tanahashi wants to put his pretty little face on TV, show up on Dynamite with his stupid little side ponytail. Tanahashi’s been dodging Moxley for months, but the people don’t know that. In that case, screw Tanahashi! Tanahashi’s dead to Moxley. Moxley sent his boy, Charlie, to FedEx with a stack of contracts and told him to send it to the boys in the NJPW office. We’ll see what comes through “the fOrBiDdEn DoOr~!” Moxley IS the forbidden door!

And Tanahashi, maybe you’re the only smart one here. Maybe he learned from his boys, Nagata and Suzuki, what happens. Forbidden doors might be open, but nothing good is waiting for them on the other side. Tanahashi wants the US title, Archer has it, will The Ace get the gold so that Moxley can hit two birds with one Paradigm Shift?

 

Five Labours of Jericho, Chapter 2 – No Rules Match: Chris Jericho VS Nick Gage!

The Demo God made it through The Chair Man and that didn’t sit well with Maxwell Jacob Friedman. Round two really raises the stakes as MJF brings in the #MDKGang leader, but Jericho is ready. He sees MJF’s ringer and raises him one PAINMAKER! Will either man even survive tonight? Or can Jericho overcome the Deathmatch king to make it into chapter three?

Jericho still revels in the fans singing Judas for him, but he gets serious as Gage makes his way to the ring. MJF then joins commentary to make sure Jericho does this on his own. He even has popcorn! The bell rings and Gage has his pizza cutter already! They circle, and Gage swipes at Jericho and catches Jericho on the arm! Jericho is bleeding but not too bad. MJF revels in that, and the brawl is on! Jericho made Gage drop his cutter and he throws hands. Jericho runs but into a SPINEBUSTER! Fans rally and duel as Gage paces. Gage runs to BOOT WASH Jericho in a corner! Jericho bails out, Gage goes out and runs in around the way to fire forearms!

Gage headbutts, Jericho staggers, but Gage taunts fans and Jericho throws hands back! Jericho whips Gage into railing! Jericho gets Gage into the ring, the one rule in this match is to win in the ring. Jericho climbs but Gage throws hands! Gage climbs up to join Jericho, and hits a SUPERPLEX! Gage holds on to get Jericho back up for a FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO! Jericho survives as fans rally and duel even harder! Gage grins as Jericho gets to a corner. Gage runs side to side again but Jericho trips him up! Jericho has the legs, turns Gage, WALLS OF JERICHO! Gage endures, MJF shouts, Gage gets the ropes but there’s no ropebreaks or disqualifications!

Gage drags himself, Jericho can’t hold on while they’re in the ropes, and Jericho lets Gage go. Gage tumbles to the floor, Jericho goes out after him and gets Gage up. Jericho throws headlock punches on Gage’s scarred scalp. But Gage RAMS Jericho into a post! Gage goes around the way to look under the ring, and he brings out… LIGHT TUBES!! MJF says, “Here we go, boys!” But Jericho has Floyd the Baseball Bat! They both get in the ring, armed with their favorites, and Jericho waits on Gage to turn around to CRACK him in the ribs! And on the back! MJF protests but this isn’t cheating in a No Rules Match!

Jericho is bleeding from the forehead, he CLUBS Gage with it, but Gage catches him for an URENAGE BACKBREAKER! MJF is happy again as Gage gets the PIZZA CUTTER back! Fans fire up as Gage brings the cutter over to Jericho, and SLICES INTO THE FOREHEAD!!! Even MJF is shocked! Fans call Gage, “YOU SICK F***!” as AEW goes picture in picture.

Gage revels in the fans calling him out for being sick, and he kisses the cutter, before he SLICES JERICHO UP MORE!! Gage lets off because he wants this torture to last the rest of the night! Jericho crawls, Gage eggs the fans on, and he gets Jericho on ropes to SLICE HIM UP MORE!! Jericho can only flail until Gage lets off and CLUBS him down! Gage goes out to fetch a chair, and then another chair, and then another chair. Gage gets back in with these chairs, gets his light tubes, and he waits on Jericho to get up. Jericho headbutts low and throws forearms! Gage kicks Jericho down, gets a chair and presses it down on him, before an elbow drop!

Gage goes back out to look under the ring again. There’s no more chairs but he makes a ring crew guy help him find something. The ring crew guy gets a PANE OF GLASS! Gage SMACKS Jericho on the back with a chair, and AEW returns to single picture as Gage puts chairs together. Gage gets the glass onto the chairs to make a makeshift glass table. Gage drags Jericho to be under the glass, and goes up top! But Jericho gets up to CLUB Gage! MJF panics as Jericho lines up the shot! Jericho climbs up to the very top, rains down fists, MJF gets pissed, and then Jericho SUPER STEINERS Gage through the glass!!! Fans lose their minds as Gage writhes in pain!

MJF is stunned, he didn’t think Jericho would take it to this level. Jericho crawls and covers, TWO!! Gage wags his finger, he isn’t done yet! Jericho throws things out of the way, MJF vows Jericho loses, but Jericho SMACKS Gage with a chair. Gage shakes his head? Jericho runs in, but no Code Breaker! SPINEBUSTER on the glass shards! Gage gets his light tube again! And SMACKS one across Jericho’s back! MJF is so happy right now as Jericho takes a LIGHT TUBE HEADSHOT! Gage gets Jericho up to PILEDRIVER Jericho on glass shards! Cover, TWO!?!? Jericho survives and Gage is upset, but not as much as MJF.

Gage gets another light tube and just breaks it on his knee! Gage has a jagged piece of the tube and JABS it into Jericho’s forehead again and again! Gage breaks another tube to DIG it into Jericho’s face!! Gage goes out to bring out MORE light tubes from under the ring! He’s got some four packs and fans can’t even imagine what Gage is up to with these. Gage brings the packs in, runs at Jericho, but Jericho SPITS MIST?! Where’d he get that from!? Jericho gets the four pack and SMASHES it on Gage’s head! JUDAS EFFECT!! Cover, JERICHO WINS!!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by pinfall

MJF is pissed off all over again and ruins the celebration! “You gimps keep your mouths shut!” MJF tells Chris that as he sits there in more pain than he’s ever been in, listen to MJF. They both know Jericho can’t make it to wrestling MJF, Jericho’s a mess! Fans boo but MJF tells them to shut their mouths. Jericho won’t survive, especially not with what MJF has in store for Labour Number 3! MJF says the stipulation will be Jericho has to hit a move off the top rope to win. And as far as the opponent goes, unfortunately for Jericho, this guy’s known to hold a bit of a grudge. Roll tape.

Flashback to Dynamite, 11/13/19, Jericho said MJF looks like his parents “got horny while they were watching me beat up Juventud Guerrera 25 years ago on WCW Saturday Night, and nine months later, your little twerp ass popped out.” Who the hell is Juventud? Google it, kid. Back to the present, MJF says that was “one hell of a joke.” But unfortunately, MJF did google him! Labour Number 3 is against one of the greatest luchadors in pro-wrestling history, coming back to TNT after 15 years, all to face his oldest and most bitter rival! THE JUICE, JUVENTUD GUERRERA!! Fans go nuts at hearing that news, will Homecoming have the Juice to stop Jericho?


My Thoughts:

Wow, what a wild episode. First off, we didn’t get a lot of time on the No Rules Match but WOW everything that happened in it. It was like last week’s Texas Deathmatch, but condensed into the most brutal moments. It was natural for Jericho to make it through, but thinking about it, they should’ve tried to save this for a later labor. Unless they just couldn’t secure Juventud until now. I feel like they’re raising the bar so high, the fourth labor will be a letdown compared to these first three. Jericho will still find ways to win, so I can’t wait to see what top rope move Jericho dusts off to get the win.

Miro has a good promo going into the match he’ll definitely win against Lee Johnson, Britt had a good promo for herself, and Rosa of course beats Julia and I really hope they stay on track for an All Out match between Rosa and Britt. I am a little disappointed in how the story is going for The Elite and Hangman, though. I thought this was going to be the night where Hangman secures his shot for All Out, but that didn’t work out. We got great entrances from both teams, but I felt like that alone was why Dark Order should’ve won. Commentary made note that with Hangman out of the top five for now, Christian moving up, I almost dread that Christian gets his shot at All Out.

The Six Man of Christian & Jurassic Express VS HFO was very good, but I guess they’re trying to drag the feud out. Christian VS Blade is going to be good but I just feel like something is off in the pacing of this feud with Christian and Matt Hardy. FTR VS PNP was very good but it definitely seems Cash’s injury to his arm that was legit bleeding brought about a truncated version of the finish. Maybe these two teams go again and they’re all more careful with corner posts and bare skin. Cody getting jumped by Malakai was great stuff, as was Malakai striking down Fuego just because he could. Cody VS Malakai is going to be great, but again, I hope Malakai still stands tall.

Tanahashi having a message for the IWGP US Champion was a great surprise, but him throwing his hat in the ring definitely signaled to me that Archer was winning. Archer was still winning anyway, Hikuleo is promising but not at that level just yet. Getting to see Haku was great, though. But Moxley calling Tanahashi out was also pretty cool. It’d be a shame if Archer lost the title already but it just feels like Moxley VS Tanahashi is the big match for the title in the eyes of NJPW.

My Score: 9/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

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

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

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

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

 

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

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

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over. Rocky hooks an arm but Roddy fights off the takedown to hip toss and cover. ONE, but Roddy facelocks. Rocky fights up, pries at the hold, but Roddy holds on tight. Rocky still fights his way out of the hold, wristlocks and wrenches again, then YANKS the arm.

Roddy ROCKS Rocky then CHOPS him! Roddy whips, Rocky slides under then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA! The fans fire up as Rocky then wrenches Roddy and goes up a corner. Rocky FLYING KNEE DROPS right on the arm! The fans cheer the Latino Heat and Rocky goes back to the corner. Rocky CHOPS Roddy, Roddy CHOPS back! Rocky CHOPS, Roddy kicks low!

Rocky tells The Kingdom to back off, and so does the ref. Taven mocks Rocky’s Latino Heat, but Rocky puts Roddy in the ring. Rocky storms up on Roddy to KICK his leg! Roddy hobbles to a corner, Rocky CHOPS him and then follows him. Rocky ROCKS Roddy, ROCKS him again, but Roddy bails out. Rocky goes after Roddy on the apron, but Roddy lifts!

Rocky is still in this but Roddy stays on Rocky with stomps. Roddy stomps and stomps as BOTB returns to single picture. Roddy goes back to the motorcycle stretch but the fans rally again. Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS! Roddy wobbles, Rocky KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS!

Rocky CHOPS, whips, but Roddy reverses. Rocky reverses back to kick, but Roddy ducks the enzigiri! Rocky REWIND HEEL KICKS! Roddy flops out of the ring and the fans fire up! Rocky builds speed, fakes Roddy out and DIVES onto Taven! Then Rocky DIVES onto Roddy! Rocky puts Roddy in, runs up, SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Rocky keeps his cool.

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (denies Rocky Romero a title opportunity)

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

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.6/10

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

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

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

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.

  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

 

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

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

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

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

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

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

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

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

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

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

The bell rings and the fans rally up.

The fans boo while Ogogo rejoins commentary and the ring count begins. Lee mockingly applauds and Ogogo pretends not to know what happened. The count is 8! 9! Shibata springs in at 9.9! But Lee CLOBBERS Shibata, covers, TWO!!

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

Lee sits down, Shibata COHPS and CHOPS and runs, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! The fans fire up for Shibata’s signature and STP looks upset! Shibata snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Lee stays in this and both men catch their breaths, but Shibata gets Lee up. Lee switches around to COBRA TWIST! The fans rally as Shibata endures, and Shibata pries at the grip.

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

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

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

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

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

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

Angelico and Garcia reset, knuckle lock, then Angelico trips Garcia. Angelico rolls Garcia, whips, but Garcia reverses. Angelico rolls off Garcia’s back, Garcia jumps the leg sweep, but not the EDDY GORDO KICK! Angelico wrenches, steps over, LA MAGISTROL! TWO, but Angelico stomps Garcia around. Angelico drags Garcia by an arm but Garcia kicks him. Angelico stomps Garcia, but Garcia CHOPS! Angelico JABS Garcia, digs his boots in, but lets off as the ref counts. Angelico drags Garcia up, hits a BIG back suplex, then grabs legs. Angelico steps over, but Garcia kicks him away to trip him! Garcia steps through to FIGURE FOUR!

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it! Garcia has it! Angelico has it again, Garcia has it back, ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as the two kick at each other while the hold is undone. They both stand, Garcia kicks but Angelico kicks back. Garcia kicks, Angelico kicks, repeat! Garcia kicks more and more, runs, but the leg bothers him!

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

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

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

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

 

Pac speaks.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

AZM shoves Storm in, goes up top, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Storm flounders all the way across the ring! AZM storms over to drag Storm up, but Storm HOTSHOTS her! AZM flounders, Storm stomps her, and then Storm CHOPS AZM down! Storm pushes AZM around, flexes, then brings AZM up. Storm whips AZM, BOOTS AZM down, then flexes again.

Storm stomps AZM, drags her up, and Collision returns to single picture as Storm stomps AZM in a corner. Storm pie faces AZM, taunts her, but AZM rises. The fans fire up as AZM fires forearms! Storm ROCKS AZM in return! AZM fires another forearm, Storm ROCKS her again! AZM fires more forearms, then blocks a kick to ROUNDHOUSE!

AZM runs, but Storm HEADBUTTS! But AZM returns to LA MYSTICA! Then BUZZSAW! Both women are down and the fans fire up! AZM sits up first, brings Storm up, and then runs, but Storm CHOKES her!

Storm drags AZM up, waistlocks, but AZM fights!

AZM grabs ropes, Storm drags her back, but AZM arm-drags free! Step over, and AZM SUSHI ROLL! TWO!! Storm escapes, blocks the buzzsaw, then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX!! AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

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

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

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

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

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

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

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

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine.

Claudio gets a chair and he runs off the DCF, but the damage has been done! Will the American Dragon be able to recover in time for Dynasty?


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
