The Rogue Luchador could not stay a double champion, but he won’t let the Bone Soldier Reborn be the next Mr. Junior Heavyweight Division at his expense! Will Sapporo heat up as gold is on the line in the Summer Struggle?

The introductions are made, the singles title is raised, and we see if #ItsReborn!

The two circle and fans rally up. The two tie up, Desperado pushes Taiji to ropes, but Red Shoes counts the ropebreak.

Desperado rolls, slips through, wrenches and wristlocks back, but Taiji rolls and gets the wrench back to hammerlock. Desperado gets to ropes and steps through to the apron to then step back in!

Desperado powers up to pry the hold apart, but Taiji drags him back down with a takeover! Desperado headscissors, Taiji kips free, and the two stand off. Fans cheer as Desperado cools off and circles with Taiji again. They knuckle lock, Taiji wrenches to wrangle Desperado to a top wristlock. Desperado fights up to his feet, Taiji wrenches through to YANK the arm, and YANK, and CLUB the shoulder! Desperado goes to a corner, Taiji throws in elbows, then whips Desperado corner to corner. Desperado reverses, Taiji slips through the ropes, slides under Desperado and back out the other side, to shoulder in and springboard!

Desperado gets under, things speed up, Red Shoes is used as a shield! Taiji gets past Red Shoes, avoids the basement dropkick, then gets the arm for an omoplata! Desperado rolls and slips away, out of the ring! Fans cheer and Taiji grins but Desperado just laughs it off. Taiji gives Desperado space to return and fans rally up.

Desperado stands at 10 of 20, staggers, gets in the ring at 11, and fans cheer as the match continues. Taiji SLAMS the bad arm against the mat, then paces while Desperado writhes. Taiji looms over Desperado, drags him up and uses a cravat to wrench the neck. Taiji throws in shoulders, snapmares and NECK TWISTS! Desperado writhes, Taiji covers, TWO!

Taiji grabs ropes but Desperado drags him away to drop knees on the leg. Desperado steps through, drops down on the knee, and ties Taiji’s legs up in a Butterfly Stretch! Taiji sits up, CHOPS, but the irony is that Desperado starts falling back, putting more pressure on the legs!

Taiji helps Desperado stay up, but Desperado uses that to still put more pressure on the legs. Taiji keeps his shoulders up so it isn’t a cover, and Desperado eggs him on.

Winner: El Desperado, by pinfall (still IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion)

The Rogue Luchador roars victoriously as he breaks the Bone Soldier! Red Shoes brings the belt to him and sets it on his shoulder. Desperado raises it up over his head as Taiji makes his exit. Desperado gets the mic, but before he can speak, someone speaks on the titantron? Is that Robbie Eagles?! “G’day, champion. It seems like the Junior Division has been more like a committee of vultures, jumping over one another to be the next challenger for the title.” Maybe he needs to push his way to the front of the line before anyone else can. So Eagles vows to be the next challenger to the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship! With no more vultures, Desperado has a bird of prey to face. And Eagles vows Desperado will surrender to the Sniper of the Skies!

Desperado now responds to the video as fans rally up. “What a cute foreigner boy he is.” Desperado says when you wrestle a guy like Taiji, win or lose, there isn’t much left in you to talk, let alone cut a promo. But Desperado thanks Taiji for that great match. And he sees Hiromu on commentary. Stop talking and get back in the ring ASAP. But that aside, Desperado admits he has little left, but he just won so he’ll puff out his chest as THE IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion. No real acknowledgement of the sniper putting the target on his back, but will Desperado have to be ready for Eagles swooping in after his gold?


My Thoughts:

A very good start to the somewhat surprising return of the Summer Struggle series of events for NJPW. The 8 Man Tag being decided with Takagi pinning Douki makes sense, mostly because it keeps things even between the Tekkers and their challengers. That match is going to be really good but I don’t see the Tekkers losing. At least, not on a Summer Struggle show. What is it keeping Sanada from breaking through to the singles title scene? Or is it just the ill-timing of NJPW having plans for other things? Them uniting Intercontinental and Heavyweight titles into a world title, that did take away an option for Sanada to go for.

The Junior Heavyweight title match was great stuff, from the in-ring story of each man working on a limb for their submission strategy to the overbooking of ELP coming out and Kanemaru countering him. Desperado winning makes sense, both on Taiji not being quite on a double championship level and on a lot of guys in the Junior Heavyweight Division wanting their shot. Robbie Eagles making a return via titantron promo is great, but boy someone needs to learn how to get good audio quality out of these. Pretty sure he was greenscreening while being in like, his garage? The sound just seemed to echo and I’m not even sure I got his promo 100% right.

Desperado shrugging it off was a great detail, too. He doesn’t take the gaijin seriously, and would much rather Hiromu heal up and return so they can settle things. But Desperado VS Eagles, whenever and wherever that happens, will be a good match to further Desperado’s reign.

My Score: 8.4/10

Jon Moxley speaks.

“Well, things just got more interesting next week. The IWGP Championship will be on the line for the first time ever on Dynamite. That is one hell of a powerful cellphone you have there, Mr. Callis. Hey, I wasn’t planning on losing anyway, and I like playing this game better when the stakes are high, while the clock is clicking down to zero, when there’s no room for error, when it is truly do or die. My hand only gets steadier. I was born for these moments. But hey, let’s say next week in Jacksonville, I get struck by lightning. Will Hobbs shocks the world. From Oakland to Tokyo, new IWGP Champion, what a story that would be. If you like fairytales.

“And Don Callis would sit right next to you on the plane on the way to Japan, he’ll sit right next to you in the press conference. But has he truly been where you’ve been? Does he truly know you? Who you are and where you come from? I do. And I will be in the ring with you next week, not Don Callis. I’ve always known you’ve had something in here, Hobbs. I’ve always known. Next week, if you haven’t found that thing inside you that I talked about… It’s not about championships and contracts and fancy cars, that comes later. If you haven’t found it in the week I have given you, I will find it for you.

“Next week on Dynamite, what I’m gonna give you is a gift. I’m gonna show you who you really are. But that gift is going to be a bitter pill to swallow. Hey, this is pro-wrestling, anything can happen. So take this advance: don’t hesitate for one second, cuz I won’t.” The Maniac has issued his final warning, but will the Powerhouse write history with his own two hands?

 

High Flying Fatal 4 Way Elimination Match: Rob Van Dam VS Lee Johnson VS Isiah Kassidy VS Komander!

Today is 4/20 and you know what that means! RVD is ready to fly! But so are Big Shotty, Brother Zay and the AAA Cruiserweight Champion! It all comes down to who lasts longest, so who will have the last laugh on Rampage?

Winners: Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, by pinfall

This trio is ready! They also show respect to Top Flight, but wait! The lights go down! And we all know that means House of Black! Buddy Matthews sarcastically claps from the tron as he says that was impressive. But take a moment to look each other in the eyes, so they can thank each other. Because in 24 hours, the House of Black eradicates all their dreams at Dynasty. Malakai Black steps forward to say they will dig deep. So deep that they reach their deepest, darkest fears. So deep, that Edge will wonder if he’s close to Hell. It will oddly feel familiar. Because let’s face it, for people like Malakai and Edge, Hell is where the heart is.

The lights come back up, but neither edge, Eddie or Mark sweat that warning. Will the AEW TNT Champion, the ROH World Champion and the NJPW Strong Openweight Champion be too good of a hand for the full House to stop?

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ Don Callis VS CJ Esparza!

The Don Callis Family is all in action tonight, and it starts with Hobbs warming up for his showdown on Dynamite. The NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Jon Moxley, called Hobbs out, will Hobbs send him a message back through the #FlippinSweet Mr. CJE?

The bell rings, Hobbs almost laughs at CJE for being less than half his size. CJE fires hands, but Hobbs shoves and CLOBBERS CJE right down! Hobbs drags CJE up, and whips him right out of the ring! Hobbs goes out after CJE, Callis is on commentary to tell us that Hobbs has done things we can’t even talk about on TV. And that’s about to happen to CJE! POWERSLAM on the apron, another POWERSLAM, and then another POWERSLAM! Hobbs puts CJE in, for the TORTURE RACK!! CJE taps, Hobbs wins!

Winner: Will Hobbs, by submission

Callis joins his Powerhouse in the ring, with a mic, to say he has something important to say. The fans boo as Callis says the Don Callis Family is the talk of the pro-wrestling world! They have the Bunkhouse Brawl tonight, so out of concern for his own personal safety, Callis will NOT be at ringside. But everyone is talking about Hobbs VS Moxley for Dynamite. That is what you know, but he’ll tell us what we don’t know. Everyone knows that Callis was directly responsible in 2017 for Kenny Omega to win the then IWGP Heavyweight Championship. Everyone knows the biggest match in the history of Japanese wrestling was Omega VS Jericho in the Tokyo Dome in 2018!

Omega VS Jericho was signed, sealed and delivered by “Don BAH GAWD Callis,” and it was a match that set NJPW on a new course of success that they enjoy to this day. And they thank him for the favor, or “onkei,” he promised he’d come back to ask for that favor. And in Japanese culture, everyone honors those commitments. Callis waited six years to cash in that chip, and he’s been burning up the phonelines to cash in ALL his chips. So he is happy to announce here tonight, that Moxley VS Hobbs on Dynamite is now for the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship!! Once again, that IWGP world title will come home to the Don Callis Family!

The fans boo at Callis pulling strings, but now Hobbs has the biggest match of his career! Will the Powerhouse add some gold to the Book of Hobbs’ next chapter?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Hey, everybody. Um, first of all, I just want to apologize to Hook, to Taz, and to all of you watching for my conduct this past Wednesday night. I lost my temper and I pushed Taz to the mat, which made Hook lose his cool, and he came at me. Listen, I don’t blame Hook for that at all. I mean, if somebody put their hands on a person that means as much to me as Taz does to Hook, I would’ve done the exact same thing. And when you had me in the corner, Hook, you said to me, ‘I’m gonna show you just how good I am, any place, anywhere.’ And unfortunately, I’m gonna take you up on that.”

Jericho reveals he went to Tony Khan and asked for an FTW Championship match, and that request was granted. The real unfortunate part is this: The Learning Tree is gonna teach Hook one of the hardest lessons he’s ever gonna learn, and it’s a lesson in humility. A lesson about how hard it is to lose something that means so much to him. But the Learning Tree will make sure Hook is learning not just in-ring lessons but life lessons, as well. Jericho wants to make Hook a better wrestler and a better person. So keep this in mind: Jericho will beat Hook for the FTW Championship, but it will hurt Jericho a lot more than it will Hook.

The Ocho is looking to humble the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, but will he be the one that gets humbled instead?

The Acclaimed w/ Billy Gunn VS The Gunns w/ Jay White!

Ahead of putting all the trios gold on the line, we get a remix of the… “classic” feud between these teams! Max Caster & Anthony Bowens want to humble Austin & Colten like they did over a year ago, but will this be where the Ass Boys graduate to being men? Caster has a track on deck! “It’s 420, Bowens is all about that incense. They legalized weed, but y’all legalized incest. Damn, guys, y’all progressive with the foreplay, but I’m a kill y’all like that cancer killed OJ. Damn, think you hotter than the North Face? I’m a put you to sleep like Trump at his court date! Back tot he trash, boys. We do it big, y’all’re just the little ass boys!”

The fans fire up as Bowens says, “PEEEOREAAA~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! But before things get going, Tony Schiavone gets on a mic to make an announcement. Gunns, get in the ring. If you walk out on this match- White wants Schiavone to shut up but Schiavone says no, Tony Khan is putting this out. If the Gunns run away from this match, they don’t get their match at Dynasty! Austin says they can just leave now then. Schiavone asks if he even heard a word that was said. But then Bowens TOSSES Colten & Austin in, the bell rings, and it’s on! The Acclaimed fire off hands and stomps!

The fans fire up as Caster & Bowens whip the Gunns into each other! Caster TOSSES Colten, Bowens DECKS Austin, and they get Austin set up for SCISSOR ME TIMBERS!

Austin drags Caster up and in, bumps him off buckles, then taunts Billy & Bowens. Colten joins in on that, and Austin ROCKS Caster! And ROCKS him again! Tag to Colten, he stomps a mudhole into Caster then drags him up. But Caster throws body shots!

Caster backs Colten down, but Colten knees low as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Colten has Caster down in a HALF CRAB! Tag to Austin, and he gets the other leg, DOUBLE HALF CRAB! The ref counts, Colten lets go at 4, but Austin still has his half crab.

Austin tags in, grabs lets, but Caster kicks him away! And kicks him again! Austin still tries but Caster BOOTS him! Tag back to Colten, he stays between Acclaimed, only for Caster to send Colten into Austin! Hot tag to Bowens and he rallies on the Gunns!

The fans fire up as the Five Tool Player ROLLING ELBOWS Colten, then ROCKS Austin! “EVERYONE! LOVES THE ACCLAIMED!” Colten runs up, into the kick, mule kick and FAMOUSER! Cover, TWO! Colten survives but Bowens pounds the mat. The fans rally, Colten rises, and Bowens runs up to fireman’s carry! Colten flails, grabs ropes, and Austin holds Colten, too! Bowens breaks that, DECKS Austin then gets around Colten. Colten switches, Bowens switches, but Colten again grabs ropes. Austin again holds Colten, but Caster runs up to DECK Austin! Bowens rolls Colten up, TWO and Bowens is sent into Caster!

Colten rolls Caster, feet on ropes, but the ref sees! The fans cheer as the Gunns get caught! White is furious, but then Bowens fireman’s carries Colten! USHIGOROSHI! And a SHINING WIZARD! Cover, but Austin breaks it! The fans boo but neither man has someone to tag, so they rally up behind Bowens. Bowens runs up but Colten puts him on the apron. Bowens ROCKS Colten, Colten gets in the ref’s face, and Austin anchors Bowens! Bowens kicks Austin away, but Colten runs up to FAMOUSER! Cover, TWO!! Bowens survives and White protests the count! Colten is frustrated, but he tags in Austin and the Gunns bring Bowens up.

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon and notes that the Don Callis Family has been relentless. Last time we saw Bryan, he was laid out by a brainbuster to the ramp. Tonight, it is a Bunkhouse Brawl against Takeshita & Fletcher, right before Dynasty’s match with Will Ospreay. How is Bryan feeling? Bryan says it sounds like a lot on his plate. Yet here he is! He feels alive! And it does seem like the DCF is up to something. What could that be? Does Don Callis not have the faith in Ospreay he says he does? Another reason Bryan feels alive is because Takeshita dropped him on his head, on the ramp, and yet Bryan gets his revenge tonight!

Then tomorrow, Bryan will test himself against Will Ospreay, a man many people call the best in the world today, and Bryan will test that for himself. But then in walks Ospreay, wanting to apologize. He had nothing to do with what went down on Dynamite or Collision this past week, so he just wants there to be no excuses on either side. He has nothing to do with this stuff. Bryan says sure he doesn’t. Bryan leaves, Ospreay wants to defend his innocence, but will it matter when it’s all said and done?

 

Toni Storm speaks.

It was after the incident with Thunder Rosa on Dynamite that the AEW Women’s World Champion returned backstage. She said to keep this in full color, so that we could see what Rosa did to her. And she also wants to make what she says clear. Rosa wants to be a hero? A martyr? To rally the troops? There is nothing more disgusting than a wrestler that says they’re not selfish. This is a business, not a charity. If Rosa wants to uplift other women, she should’ve stayed a social worker. Rosa may be a fighter, but Storm is a star. Rosa doesn’t want this belt back because she once held it, but because of everything Storm has made it that Rosa never could.

This title shines in Storm’s reflection. This leather smells nice when Storm sniffs it. And Rosa just basks in the sunshine that glows right out of Storm’s arse! Rosa wants to take Storm to Hell? Better check the address. Hell is in Storm’s bedroom and Storm makes love to her demons every bloody night. So don’t worry, at Dynasty, Rosa can just watch. The leading lady is ready for the dramatic climax of this title picture, but will she be the one on top when it’s all over?

 

Bunkhouse Brawl: Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita!

The Blackpool Combat Club has been throwing hands with the Don Callis Family but it’s time to throw rules out the window. Will the American Dragon & Swiss Superman make it through? Or will the Aussie Arrow & Alpha make sure Bryan doesn’t establish his Dynasty?

Oh no! The DCF attack during the BCC’s entrance!

Winners: Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli, by submission

This Bunkhouse Brawl was brutal, but it goes the Blackpool Combat Club’s way! Bryan has the music stop so he can get on the mic. He had a lot of people asking, “What the hell are you doing having a Bunkhouse match the night before you wrestle Ospreay? It’s because of this. Some people, when they think of Heaven, they think of streets of gold, they think of 40 virgins, but that’s not me! My spirit is a part of this! When I die, my heaven will be standing in this ring, bleeding in front of all you people right here in Peoria, Illinois!” The fans cheer that!

Bryan continues to say that having a whole crew of people trying to break him before he faces one of the best in the world, having everyone tell him he can’t do it… Tomorrow, at Dynasty, Bryan beats Ospreay’s ass! The fans really fire up for that one! The American Dragon may not be 100%, but will he be giving 1000% when that bell rings in St. Louis?

 

Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway speak.

The Galaxy’s Greatest asks, “Do you wanna know what we are? We are fired up!” The Babe with the Power says yep! And you wanna know what “fired up” is long for? F U! Because what that is short for is FIRED UP! Stokely stops them from burning out, because where he’s from, F U means something different. So therefore, F U Brody King! F U to the soon to be former TBS Champion, Julia Hart! Willow asks if a confident champion takes a chain and sucker punches their challenger days before the match. Don’t think so! Willow has Julia’s number this time, so Willow’s gonna do something she’s never done before.

Willow is gonna pick Julia up, hoist her high, and BOMB her through that mat, to send her back to the shadow realm she came from. Tomorrow at Dynasty, Willow walks out the NEW TBS Champion, b*tch!! WORLDSTAR!! OH~! Willow is ready, but will she go from Babe with the Power to the Babe with the Title?

 

Skye Blue VS Leyla Hirsch!

The Chicago Skye is getting darker and darker, but she still chases the bright shine of championship gold. Will she be primed for something after Dynasty? Or will there be a LEGIT contender stepping up instead?

The fans rally, Skye stomps Leyla, then stomps her more. Skye drags Leyla up, reels her in, and snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Leyla hangs tough but Skye drags her up to CHOKE her on ropes! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then she storms up on Leyla again. Leyla ROCKS Skye! And ROCKS her again, and again! Skye DECKS Leyla for it! Skye then drags Leyla back up, whips her into a corner hard, then goes to the opposite end. The fans fire up as Skye runs, handsprings and FOREARMS! Skye grins, whips corner to corner, but Leyla reverses to SAIDO! Leyla storms up, wheelbarrow and GERMAN SUPLEX!

Leyla has the fans rallying up as she takes aim. Skye stirs, Leyla puts her in a drop zone, then goes up. But Skye CLUBS Leyla! Skye then tucks Leyla in for CHEEKY NANDOS! Leyla wobbles on the ropes, Skye turns her around and climbs up after her. Skye fires forearms, brings Leyla up, but Leyla fights the lift! Leyla CLUBS Skye, CLUBS her again and again, then adjusts to SUPER SUNSET FLIP GERMAN SUPLEX!! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Leyla is shocked! Leyla won’t stop, though, she puts Skye in a drop zone again and goes back up. But Skye hits ropes to trip Leyla up! SUPERKICK! Skye roars, and she brings Leyla up for a fireman’s carry! T K O!!

Roll back, DRAGON SLEEPER!! Leyla TAPS, Skye wins!
