The Buy-In – 10 Man Tag: The Hardy Family Office VS Jurassic Express & Best Friends!

Big Money Matt has been racking up some receipts with Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus, Chuck Taylor, Wheeler Yuta, and especially Orange Cassidy. But will having Private Party and The Hybrid2 be enough to keep Hardy’s enemies from collecting?

The teams sort out and the Kentucky Gentleman starts with Hardy, but Hardy is calling out Cassidy! He wants to “DELETE!” Freshly Squeezed so badly, he shoves Chuck at the corner! Chuck tags Yuta instead, he and Hardy tie up but Hardy knees low and shoves Yuta back at the corner! Hardy! Wants! Cassidy! Yuta looks to Cassidy, Cassidy doesn’t complain, so Yuta tags him in.

The Butcher is back!? The biggest mercenary on Hardy’s payroll CLOBBERS Cassidy! The Butcher then gets Cassidy up for the SWINGING URENAGE! But this isn’t the end, as the rest of the HFO regroups and sits Cassidy up. But Jurassic Express returns, and they’ve brought Dante Martin, the Varsity Blonds and members of the Dark Order with them! There are even more friends of the Best Friends than Hardy bet on! Will this turn into an all out war now? Oh wait, you GOT to give the people what they want! That’s the biggest group hug in AEW history!

 

Dan Lambert and The Men of the Year are up in the nosebleeds!

Lambert shouts into the mic, “I have to say about this company and all you idiots that make up its fanbase, but it was made crystal clear to me that when I pulled up to the arena that former UFC Heavyweight Champions, Andre Arlovski and Junior dos Santos, together with BMF Champion, Jorge Masvidal, and The Men of the Year, Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky, are here for a little less talk and a lot more action!” Ethan Page says, “I love~ you~, Dan!” And All Ego is glad Lambert reached out to him and Scorpio. “Everyone knows the Men of the Year are two very handsome, fashionable men.” Scorpio adds, “They have eyes.

Ethan says the Men of the Year love to talk their trash, flap their gums and show off the Gift of Gab. Scorpio adds, “They have ears.” Ethan continues by saying, “But everyone on the roster already knows that The Men of the Year are extremely! Dangerous! Men!” Scorpio says “But sometimes, you have to take it to the next level.” That means stepping out of their comfort zones, “and back into the danger zone.” They’ll do that with their new friends, American Top Team! Lambert says they’ve got UFC fighters in the building, Scorpio’s got his new five-year extension signed, sealed and delivered, and Ethan is always looking to feed that ego. The only thing left is Lambert saying whose ass they kick and when!

Lambert asks if Masvidal thinks it’s necessary tonight, and Masvidal feels it is very necessary. So then, who will this arrogant crossover have in their crosshairs first?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Miro VS Eddie Kingston!

God’s Favorite Champion or not, the Bulgarian Brute has been the most brutal TNT Champion yet! But the Mad King knows a lot about getting brutal, so he’s ready to show there ain’t no favorites here! Will Kingston get his crown by dropping Miro on his head? Or will Miro at least redeem himself for getting dropped on Friday?

The introductions are made, Kingston is egging Miro on already but the belt is raised first. The bell rings and we see who’s just that much crazier!

Fans are thunderous already and Miro nods. Miro talks trash, Kingston talks trash, fans chant for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” Miro gets annoyed and rushes in, but into a knee! Kingston facelocks but Miro holds off the DDT! Miro shoves, drop toeholds then goes for his camel clutch! Kingston slips out, wants the full nelson but Miro breaks free to bail out! Fans boo Miro as he paces and calms down. Kingston waits patiently, fans chant, “F him up, Eddie, F him up!” Miro returns, the two square off again, but Miro blocks the kick only to get a poke in the eye! Kingston CHOPS and CHOPS and has Miro in a corner for MACHINE GUN CHOPS! Kojima is here tonight…

Miro stops the chops, clinches Kingston but Kingston turns it around! EXPLODER! Miro bails out right away but Kingston keeps his cool. Kingston goes out after Miro with fans fired up behind him.

Miro eggs Kingston on, Kingston fires off fast shots, but Miro DECKS Kingston with one! Miro then drops elbow after elbow before he covers, ONE!!

Fans fire up with Kingston’s toughness, but Miro fish hooks him into a chinlock! Fans rally as Kingston endures the squeeze. Kingston fights his way up, Miro squeezes tighter to bring him back down, but the fans are still behind Kingston. Kingston throws body shots, gets free and CHOPS again!

Winner: Miro, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

The Mad King had a perfect strategy, but the ring is itself a variable no one can predict! Miro can barely hold up the title with how his arms feel from all that damage to his neck. Will his grip on the gold start to weaken from here on?

 

Jon Moxley VS Satoshi Kojima!

The Maniac knows all about the King of Cozy Style, and that’s partly why he’s pissed off! Only one man in all of NJPW was brave enough to accept this open challenge, and it was only the old guard that answered? Will Kojima prove he’s as crazy as Moxley says and find a way to win? Or will Moxley be the only one crazy enough to go all out in Chicago?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans are fired up already and Kojima offers a handshake. Given that press conference from earlier in the week, Moxley slaps the handshake away to flip Kojima off!

AEW Women’s World Championship: Britt Baker w/ Jamie Hayter & Rebel VS Kris Statlander w/ Orange Cassidy!

The Doctor has always seen herself as the face of the Women’s Division, the reason fans tune in to watch, and “the baddest bitch on the block.” It became hard to argue with her after she won this title of Hikaru Shida. But the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien isn’t here to argue, she’s here to fight! Will Statlander win the fight and give Britt reason to work on herself?

Backstage interview with Andrade El Idolo & Chavo Guerrero.

Alex Marvez asks El Idolo about how his scheduled match with PAC isn’t happening now because of apparent travel issues. We know Team Andrade has done this to Death Triangle before, is he going to claim he isn’t behind these particular issues? Andrade says he is here to fight. Do you think he wants to miss this big, amazing night? Andrade asks his assistant, Jose, if he was the one that cancelled Pac’s flight. Jose says no. Andrade asks Chavo if he was the one who cancelled Pac’s flight. Chavo plays dumb, saying he has no idea about that. Chavo doesn’t even know American Airlines’ number. Not that anyone said Pac was using American Airlines, just saying.

But it doesn’t matter why or how Pac is missing All Out, the point is Pac is scared of El Idolo! Everyone knows that, and the same things happened with the “poor little Lucha Brothers” before. Team Andrade has offered their services, if they don’t want to accept the help then that is on them. So no, they did not cancel the flights. But this Friday on Rampage, El Idolo VS Lil’ Pac. No more excuses. Andrade will even pay for the flight so that he can settle this with Pac! Will the Bastard be more than happy to accept that fight?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championship Steel Cage Match: The Young Bucks VS The Lucha Brothers!

From accepting Don Callis’ advice and seeing things his way, to having the cold spray monkey butler Brandon Cutler constantly running around, it has all led to this! Matt & Nick Jackson must now fight their way out of the steel to hold onto their gold! But when Penta El Zero M & Rey Fenix have #CeroMiedo, will that lead them to finally dethroning the Bucks?

The cage lowers and is secured in place, with escape NOT an option. To make the challengers’ entrance even greater, GANGSTA L and MUELAS DE GALLO are live and in person to rap the theme song! As for the Bucks, they of course have The Elite as their posse, but they’re kinda why there’s a cage. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, Callis joins commentary and the cage door is closed! Now we see how much blood, sweat and tears these blood brothers are willing to shed for glory and gold!

Fans are thunderous already for “CERO! MIEDO!” Fenix and Penta throw hands but the Bucks return them! The Lucha Bros get the edge and CLUB the Bucks down! The Lucha Bros whip, the Bucks dodge and start climbing! The Lucha Bros stop them, the Bucks kick them away, but Fenix runs and gets a boost to dropkick both Bucks down! Not that it matters, escape wouldn’t end this. The Lucha Bros put the Bucks in opposite corners, Penta KICKS Matt and Fenix CHOPS Nick. They whip the Bucks at each other, the Bucks dosido but the hermanos dodge and do the same! Penta runs at Nick, Fenix runs at Matt, GAMANGIRIS IN STEREO!

Penta keeps Nick down, Matt ROCKS Matt. Penta & Fenix double whip Nick, he goes to the apron and ROCKS Penta. Fenix runs in as Nick climbs, and SHOVES Nick into steel! Matt runs in but Penta pops him up to a headstand! Penta SUPERKICKS, then Fenix knuckle locks and CHOPS Matt! Nick returns the favor as he knuckle locks and CHOPS Penta! Fenix and Nick go to the same corner, go up and up and stare down, Fenix SUPER STEINERS Nick! Penta forearm smashes Matt, whips him to Fenix, fireman’s carry and DEATH VALLEY! WAZZUP!? Dropkick to Matt’s butt, cover, Nick breaks it! Fenix and Penta coordinate, UNO DOS TRES, DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!

Fans are thunderous as Fenix & Penta soak it all in. Penta RAMS Nick into steel, Fenix RAMS Matt into steel, then they trade sides to RAM them into steel again! Penta and Fenix coordinate as they trade partners and they both SPEAR the Bucks into steel! Fenix stomps Nick, he and Penta coordinate again and trade back, but the Bucks dodge!

The Final Fight: Chris Jericho VS MJF!

Even after the Herculean gauntlet of the Five Labours of Jericho, Le Demo God could NOT defeat Maxwell Jacob Friedman 1v1. But MJF saw the desperation in Jericho’s eyes when he asked for this match, and of course pounced on this opportunity! Will the Salt of the Earth rub salt in all the wounds when HE gets to be the one to say, “I retired Chris Jericho?”

Because he already sees himself as the new “king” of pro-wrestling, MJF of course wears a king’s robe out to the ring. However, fans fire up for the live guitar performance of Judas, courtesy of Fozzy’s Billy Gray!

CM Punk VS Darby Allin!

After seven years of everyone everywhere in pro-wrestling asking again and again, the Best in the World is finally getting back in the ring! And no better place to do it than in Punk’s backyard of Chicago! But Darby’s entrance starts with another masterful vignette. “Most people tiptoe through life, hoping they make it safely to death. – Earl Nightingale.” The body bag is back, and it’s got “BEST IN THE WORLD” written all over it. The bag is brought up into the air by a helicopter, where Darby is perched in the doorway. They fly together, then Darby drops out to go past the body bag. The Relentless One “lands” and makes his entrance to the ring!

The Icon sees him out, but lets him handle this one alone, just as he promised. Darby’s skateboard has half Punk, half skull on it, more imagery predicting a possible outcome for tonight. But as soon as Darby’s music stops, the chants of “C M PUNK! C M PUNK!” start up again. Cult of Personality plays and Chicago once again belongs to one man! Darby soaks up the moment just as much as anyone, and Punk decides to sit down with him! Fans cheer as the two stare down this way, “This is Awesome!” “Holy s*it!” Darby stands, takes off the jacket and shows the pant has expanded to cover half his body, not just his face! Punk likes that, and the bell rings!

Punk and Darby circle, tie up, and are in a collar ‘n’ elbow deadlock. Darby gets under to arm-drag Punk down, and Punk nods that Darby made a smart move. The two reset, circle again as fans rally and duel hard as they have all night, and Punk tests the waters with kicks. They tie up, Punk headlocks but Darby powers out, only for Punk to run him over with a shoulder! Darby scrambles away and Punk seems to be getting back into things. Punk and Darby circle as fans chant, “WELCOME BACK! WELCOME BACK!” Punk pretends like he doesn’t understand who that’s for and points between him and Darby. Of course fans cheer harder for Punk!

Punk and Darby feel things out again, tie up, and Punk headlocks. Punk grinds the hold, Darby powers up and wrenches to a hammerlock. Punk works on an escape but Darby spins through to hold onto the hammerlock! Fans rally and duel again as again Darby spins through with Punk to hold the hammerlock down. Punk tries to reach back, and he manages to snapmare but Darby rolls through again to keep the hammerlock! Darby uses his forehead for a point of leverage but Punk sits up. Punk gets to his feet, Darby schoolboys, ONE! Punk elbows Darby down and shakes out his arm. Fans cheer as Punk keeps up with Darby. Punk scoops and SLAMS Darby, covers, ONE!

Punk wraps onto Darby with a chinlock but Darby endures as Punk leans on him. Darby fights up, Punk shifts to a headlock but Darby powers out and follows to then shoulder tackle! Things speed up, Punk hurdles and runs but Darby drops and leaps, into a fireman’s carry! Darby gets right out of there to not even give Punk the GTS! Darby is a bit frustrated he got caught, but Punk patiently waits for Darby to come back. Punk appreciates the “YOU STILL GOT IT!” chants as Darby slowly returns. Darby and Punk reset, tie up, and Punk headlocks. Darby powers out, Punk blocks the hip toss to whip but Darby goes up to flying arm-drag! And back body block in the corner! Then another!

Darby fires up as Punk sits down, and Darby stands Punk up to whip him corner to corner. Punk reverses hard, and Darby gets POSTED! Darby falls out of the ring and writhes as the ref checks on him. Darby’s back already shows the welt from hitting the square steel but Punk goes out after Darby. Punk gets Darby in the ring and shoots the half, TWO! Darby is still in this but Punk goes right at that welt with a knee. Darby resists but Punk gets a partial Bow ‘n’ Arrow stretch. Fans rally and duel, Darby gets the ROPEBREAK!

Darby fights up, but Punk gets him back in that cobra twist! Darby pries his way free, Punk CLUBS him in the ribs then whips him to ropes, but Darby turns things around to THROWBACK STUNNER! Both men are down and fans fire up! The standing count begins, Darby and Punk slowly rise at 3 and stand at 4. Darby throws SLAPPING strikes, runs, dodges and springboards to COFFIN SPLASH!

Cover, TWO!! Punk survives and fans are thunderous again!

Fans rally and duel more as Darby drags himself towards the corner. Darby climbs up but Punk hurries to shove him down! Darby is stuck up top but Punk climbs up behind him. Punk gets Darby up for a SUPER BACK- NO! Darby made it a crossbody! Cover, TWO!! Darby and Punk crawl around, Darby gets to a corner and stands to run in, jackknife cover! TWO as Punk bridges and spins, but then he fireman’s carries, G T S!! But Darby falls out of the ring!! Punk can’t believe he misjudged that one! But he lets the ring count climb, and it gets past 5! Darby still doesn’t move, but then it gets to 8 and Darby springs up to get in at 9!!

Punk keeps his cool and he says he’s going to end this one now. Punk stands Darby up, throws heavy forearms over and over, then puts Darby in a corner. Punk goes corner to corner, to SHINING WIZARD! And then he reels Darby in for a short arm LARIAT! Fans fire up as Punk says night-night! Punk goes back to Darby, drags him back up, but Darby is deadweight! Punk still drags Darby up, fireman’s carries again, but Darby throws elbows to the chin and neck! Darby brings Punk down with those shots and he keeps going! Fans are thunderous as Darby finally lets off. Punk drags himself to the apron but Darby builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit with that Coffin Tope!

But speaking of, Darby goes up top as Punk is on the outside. SUPER SWANTON BOMB to a standing CM Punk! Both men are down again but “THIS IS AWESOME!” as Darby puts Punk in the ring. Darby climbs up top with Punk in a drop zone! Darby mocks the night-night, and COFFIN DROPS but FLOPS as Punk sits up! Punk is clearly having a lot of fun now but Darby catches him to a ghost pin! TWO, and fireman’s carry! GO TO- NO! Darby trips Punk, ties up the legs, LAST SUPPER! TWO!?! Punk narrowly escapes but Darby runs in, into a wicked calf kick! Fans are thunderous again as Punk watches Darby go to a corner. Punk runs in but into BOOTS!

Darby runs in to hop up, but no throwback or Poison-Rana! Fireman’s to GO TO SLEEP!! Cover, Punk wins!!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall

It was a true homecoming for Punk, and he earned this one from the Relentless young star! CM Punk tells the camera, “It’s not like I f**king forgot.” Seven years of waiting and wondering, and now no one has to doubt if Punk’s back! Sting returns, makes sure Darby is good, then offers a handshake to Punk. Fans cheer as Punk accepts it! They both then go to help Darby, and Punk assures Darby that he has Punk’s respect, too. Chicago sure shows their respect for Darby, but Darby wants to stand up on his own first. Darby gets to his feet with the ropes, Punk offers him a handshake, and Darby accepts it. What is next for all these icons, both past, present and future?

 

Paul Wight VS QT Marshall w/ The Factory!

The Giant said there was going to be no BS now that he was here in AEW, but there has been plenty of utter crap coming out of The Gifted and his stable of henchmen. After the Gunn Club shocked us all by turning on Wight for their own selfish reasons, has QT lucked out in not needing to face the World’s Largest Athlete? Or has all this only awoken the anger in this wrestling giant?

Wight makes his entrance and gets in the ring, and Aaron Solo(w) rushes at him! Wight catches him pretty easily and throws him right out! Nick Comoroto tries but Wight SHOVES him out! QT attacks, the bell rings and Wight grabs QT with both hands for a HEADBUTT! QT staggers away, Wight throws body shots on him in the corner, then rips open the fancy new Factory shirt to CHOP QT right on the chest! QT staggers away, stinging from that one, but Wight just clamps onto QT again. Wight hushes the crowd before he CHOPS QT again! QT crawls but Wight stands on his back! The ref counts, Wight hops off and then stalks QT back to a corner.

Fans fire up as Wight has QT up again, for another CHOP! And then CHOPS again! Wight whips QT out then into the corner, but QT boots back! QT runs to dropkick the legs out! QT throws off what’s left of his shirt to throw hands! Wight just shoves QT away but QT comes back to throw more hands! QT SHOTGUNS Wight down, then covers, TWO! And QT goes flying out of the ring! The Factory regroups, QT gets back in and runs at Wight, but Wight shoves away the cutter! Wight grits his teeth as QT stands up, and Wight rallies with big shoulders and clotheslines! Wight whips and back drops QT! Fans fire up as Wight roars, but Solo tries to grab at the Giant!

Wight drags Solo up the apron and onto the top rope, to CHOP him upside-down! Solo falls and flounders, Comoroto runs in but into the GIANT PUNCH! Wight runs to POUNCE Comoroto out of the ring! QT leaps from the top rope, into a choke grip! GIANT CHOKE SLAM! Cover, Wight wins!

Winner: Paul Wight, by pinfall

All the BS from The Factory didn’t even slow Wight down! Is Wight going to leave it at a great 1-0 debut? Or will he get hungry for some gold again?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“My old friend and rival, Minoru Suzuki. A marriage born out of pain, torture, and inflicting violence on one another.” Suzuki and Moxley in the ring is the best drug in the world, and Moxley should know cuz he’s tried them all. See, Moxley comes from a little town called Cincinnati, AEW will be there this Wednesday. “Do you know what we do with people like Minoru Suzuki in Cincinnati? Garden variety bullies.” Moxley says that on ol’ Beachmont Avenue, they BURY those bullies in the ground! Suzuki is no different! He stepped through the door, and Moxley is going to welcome him to #NastyNatti, aka the jungle! Will these two animals tear each other apart for Moxley’s personal homecoming?

 

Malakai Black speaks.

“You see, Dustin, I don’t want you to be calm. I want you to be as mad as humanly possible. Because they angrier you get, the more predictable you are. The more predictable you are, the bigger chance for you to slip up. And when you do… Well, you’re in the ring with me.” So just in case The Natural has calmed down some, allow Makalai to remind him of all the reasons he should be mad. Arn Anderson. Brock Anderson. Lee Johnson. And Dustin’s baby brother, Cody Rhodes. Malakai left Cody’s body all but lifeless, a crutch bent around his knee, and we have still yet to hear from him. Malakai wants Dustin to think about that as we near Wednesday. “Think about that when you realize, Dustin… That it’s time to pay the boat man’s toll.” Will the Natural’s ride be ended abruptly by the House of Black?

 

AEW World Championship: Kenny Omega w/ Don Callis VS Christian Cage!

The Cleaner, the Best Bout Machine, and the leader of The Elite has become more than just a #BeltCollector. He’s become a force to be reckoned with, but also the most obnoxious jackass outside of perhaps MJF. Captain Charisma tried humbling Omega by taking the Impact World Championship from him, but that only enraged the egotistical AEW World Champion more. It is time to finally have it out for #PrettyPlatinum. It is time to finally settle scores and put this to rest. It is time to finally go All Out! Will Omega be able to hold on to the most important belt in his collection? Or will we be calling Christian “Captain Double Champion” here tonight?

The introductions are made, the top AEW belt is raised, and we see if history repeats itself!

Omega tries to circumvent everything by running at Christian before the bell! Christian dodges, the V-Trigger hits buckles and now the bell rings as Christian hooks the arms! Omega powers out of the Killswitch and wags his fingers. Omega pie faces Christian so Christian pie faces back. They start throwing slaps, then they start throwing haymakers in a true brawl! Fans fire up as Christian gets the edge then runs, into a SNAP RANA! Christian bails out, Omega takes a moment to revel in himself and then Omega builds speed. Omega slides, Christian stays clear and CHOPS him in return! Christian CHOPS Omega again, then he whips him hard into railing!

Christian fetches Omega to whip him hard into the railing again! The ref wants Christian to go to the ring so he does, but to climb up the corner! Omega staggers, Christian SUPER CROSSBODIES! Direct hit and both men are down! Callis coaches Omega up but Christian is after him first. Fans rally, Callis barks at Christian but then scurries away. Christian refreshes the count to then ROCK Omega. Christian whips, Omega reverses and Christian runs into steel steps! Omega gets into the ring to refresh the count before he fetches Christian. Omega looks under the ring, tells the ref to shut up about it, and then pulls out a table!

Omega drops the table onto Christian, then goes up to the apron while Callis distracts the ref. Omega LEAPS off the apron to DOUBLE STOMP the table into Christian! The table still splinters but Christian is stuck under the wreckage! Omega says, “Oops! Did I do that?” Omega and Callis now bring out another table together! They set it up and the ref reprimands them but also starts the ring count. Omega drags Christian up, pretends he can’t hear the fans, but Christian blocks the suplex! Omega still tries, but Christian snap suplexes Omega to the floor! The ref gets frustrated and tells them to get in the ring.

Christian puts Omega in, runs and CHOPS him against ropes! Omega staggers about, Christian CHOPS more then whips. Omega reverses, Christian holds ropes, and he lets Omega back flop from his dropkick! Christian goes for the legs, wants a Cloverleaf, but Omega thumbs him in the eye! The ref reprimands but Omega runs in and INVERTED BULLDOGS Christian! Cover off the “slam dunk,” TWO! Omega clamps onto Christian with a chinlock and grinds him side to side! Christian endures, fans rally up but Callis barks for Christian to quit. Omega tries to make it a camel clutch but Christian keeps his arms free. Omega JAMS his elbow into Christian’s head and then puts him in a corner.

Omega CHOPS Christian, digs his boot into Christian’s throat, then lets off as the ref counts. Omega brings Christian around, back suplexes high and hard, then covers. TWO, and Omega is annoyed. Christian gets to a corner, Omega storms over but Christian has a leg guard. Omega stomps through it, gets Christian up to CHOP him again and again! Omega hoists Christian up top, CHOPS and CLUBS him more, but Christian fires off haymakers! Christian wants a DDT but Omega SHOVES Christian to the floor! Fans boo as Omega goes out to fetch Christian, but again the ref wants this in the ring. Omega and Callis inspect railing nearby and find a pretty steady one.

Omega jumps up but whoops! Bit of a slip! Omega is fine and laughs it off, he just has to be a bit more careful. Omega turns around to go again, MOONSAULT to knock down Christian! “Let’s face it, I meant to do that.” Omega puts Christian in and covers, TWO! Christian gets up, shoves Omega and eggs him on. Omega SLAPS Christian around, SLAPS through the guard, then brings Christian up. Christian hits back with body shots, uppercuts, then whips Omega corner to corner. Omega reverses hard and Christian bounces off buckles! Fans rally and duel as Omega gets Christian up, AOI SHOUDOU USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO!!

Omega keeps his cool and even applauds himself as he steps on Christian to go to the corner. Omega climbs up top, aims, but Christian trips him up! Omega lands on his best bout machine and Christian ROCKS him with an uppercut! Christian climbs up, and SUPER STEINERS Omega down! Fans fire up as both men are down but Callis grows worried. A standing count begins, the fans still duel, and Omega sits up at 3. Christian follows, the two slowly stand and the hands start flying! Omega JABS, Christian uppercuts, repeat! Omega JABS more and more, then shakes out his hand from hitting too hard!

Omega stands Christian up, whips him to a corner and runs in, but Christian dodges to climb up and rain down fists! Omega stops him at 5 and has the Electric Chair! Christian slips out, shoves Omega back into the corner and finishes up the punches! Christian gets another 15 for 20 total, then he stands on Omega at the ropes! Christian slingshots to UPPERCUT! Omega wobbles, Christian goes up top but Omega gets under the leap. Christian ducks the Polish Hammer to trip Omega up but again Omega fights off the Cloverleaf with fingers to the eyes! The ref reprimands, Christian holds on but Omega kicks him away! Christian bounces off buckles into a fireman’s carry!

Omega (and fans) say, “YOU! CAN’T! ESCAPE!” But then Christian slips out and hits a REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Omega survives again but fans chant “HE ESCAPED!” in reference to Christian. Christian aims at Omega from the corner, runs in at Omega but into a KNEE! Fans fire up and Callis is relieved as Omega gets Christian back up. Omega reels Christian in, gets him up, but Christian slips out to fire off hands! Omega RAMS Christian into the corner, fires off more, then CHOPS! Christian ROCKS Omega with another uppercut, then climbs up to reel him in. TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO!! Omega survives again but Christian keeps focus.

Omega staggers up, Christian hooks the arms but Omega elbows out this time. Omega WHEEL KICKS Christian in the back and puts him in the corner! Omega goes corner to corner and V-TRIGGERS! But Omega isn’t done, he gets Christian up for a full nelson, SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Christian sits up and sputters, then falls over as Omega gets up again. Fans want that “One More Time!” so Omega full nelsons to SNAP DRAGON again! Omega grins as Christian sputters and flounders. Omega aims his finger gun, but Christian aims his middle finger. Omega hits a THIRD SNAP DRAGON! BANG, V-TRIGGER!! Christian is on the apron but Omega pulls him into the ropes!

The ref counts, Omega lets go and stomps Christian into the apron now. Omega goes out, he and Callis laugh as Omega stands Christian up. The table is nearby but Christian holds onto ropes! The ref counts, Omega keeps trying but Christian holds on. Omega CLUBS Christian, tries the full nelson again, but Christian fights free! Christian throws elbows, turns things around and has the arms! But Omega POSTS Christian, then Electric Chair lifts! Christian fights free and HOTSHOTS Omega! Christian then SPEARS Omega off the apron and THROUGH the table!! Fans lose their minds while Christian writhes and Callis fans Omega with his suit jacket.

Both men are down as fans chant, “This is Awesome!” Christian and Omega slowly rise, the ring count passes 5 of 10, and Callis gives Omega a hand. Both men are in at 8 of 10 and fans are thunderous as this continues. Christian SPEARS Omega from behind! And then SPEARS him again!! Cover, TWO!!! Omega survives a total of three Spears but Christian isn’t done there. Christian climbs up and FROG SPLASHES onto knees! Omega saves himself and he hurries to go after Christian. Omega tries to gut wrench but his back is bothering him too much! Callis coaches Omega on and Omega POINT-BLANK V-TRIGGERS! Omega talks trash before he V-TRIGGERS again!

Omega double finger guns, runs in, but Christian blocks to fire off uppercuts! V-TRIGGER! Ripcord and FINAL FLASH! Christian is in a heap but Omega gets him up, double underhooks but no Tiger Driver! Christian back drops, Omega sunset flips but Christian rolls through and gets the legs! Omega flails and reaches to resist but Christian drags Omega away for the CLOVERLEAF! Callis signals to the back, and here come the Good Brothers! The ref is busy with Callis as Christian shoulders Karl Anderson down, but Luke Gallows grabs Christian’s arm! How can the ref not know this?! Omega runs in, Christian dodges and Gallows takes the V-Trigger!

Christian has the arms, Omega pops free to Electric Chair but Christian slips out to KILLSWITCH!! Cover, TWO?!?! Omega survives Christian’s best shot this time, having felt this from the AEW Rampage premiere! Fans rally up as Christian drags Omega to a corner. Christian puts Omega on the top rope but Callis himself gets in the ring? Christian runs the carney SOB off, goes back to Omega, and he ROCKS Omega with an uppercut. Christian climbs up, hooks Omega up again, but Omega digs fingers into Christian’s face! Omega goes to Electric Chair from up there?! SUPER ONE WINGED ANGEL!?!? Cover, Omega wins!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)

Callis celebrates with his cash cow- er uh, surrogate son as he retains the top title! The Young Bucks return to celebrate with Omega despite their own loss, and The Elite still stands tall. The Good Brothers do the rest as they beat up Christian on Omega’s behalf! The Bucks even join in, but here come the Jurassic Express! They’re friends of Christian’s but are heavily outnumbered! Omega even CLOBBERS Luchasaurus with the title belt! Omega gets a mic to say, “Are you finally starting to understand, Chicago? Best in the World this, Best in the World that. I don’t care if you have hometown heroes. I don’t care where you came from. NO ONE is on my level!”

Omega says he’s proven it day in, day out, month in, month out, year in and year out! It doesn’t matter where he goes, there’s always one thing for sure: “When it comes to this AEW belt, the only people that would ever have a chance to beat me, ever, are either not here, already tired, or they are already dead.” But wait! The lights go down! And when they come back up… it’s ADAM COLE?!?! Chicago goes nuts as Cole is now ALL ELITE, BAYBAY!! Talk about a shock to the system! Omega isn’t sure what to make of this since last time these two were face to face, “ADAM COLE, BAYBAY!” was trying to take his spot.

Fans are losing their minds, and Cole SUPERKICKS Jungle Boy!! Cole isn’t here to take anyone’s spot, he wants to be in the club again! The Bucks kiss Cole on the cheeks and Omega is relieved. “In the worlds of the all mighty Steve Urkel, ‘Did I do that?'” People thought he was legitimately afraid, didn’t they? Cole’s one of their best buds! Tell ’em, Adam! “Who’s ready for story time with Adam Cole, baybay? Boys and girls, it’s official: The Elite is the most dominant faction in the history of this business! And ain’t no chance in hell anybody’s gonna stop us!” Fans love the reference and Omega says, “That’s what I call a happy ending.”

So the only thing left is to send the fans home happy. Without any further ado, good-bye and- Wait. Is that FLIGHT OF THE VALKYRIE?! It’s Daniel… No no no. It’s BRYAN FREAKIN’ DANIELSON!!! Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” as AEW just got that much bigger! Bryan gets in the ring and stands with Christian and Jurassic Express! Maybe now The Elite has someone on their level here! Omega bails out and the brawl begins!! YES KICKS over and over for Nick Jackson while Christian, JB and Luchasaurus clear the ring! GERMAN SUPLEX for Nick! TAIL WHIP for Gallows! Nick flounders up, fans fire up as Bryan aims, RUNNING KNEE!! What was that about dominance?!


My Thoughts:

Well, we can all say how we felt about All Out 2021, if it looked good, bad, somewhere in between on paper, and I myself felt certain moves weren’t for the best. But in actual execution, AEW cannot be doubted when it comes to giving us pro-wrestling gold. Well, I still feel high levels of cringe with this Dan Lambert stuff. He’s just yelling while using needless reverse psychology to make fans like AEW more when so much is still so good. For one, when a kickoff show match is as good as anything on the main card, that is when you know a company knows what they’re doing as far as their PPV events.

Well, okay, Paul Wight whooping The Factory should’ve been the Buy-In because it was the least of the main card. Hell, that should’ve been on Dynamite and then we could’ve gotten Malakai Black VS Dustin Rhodes here and now so if Cody’s coming back, he’d do it on a PPV. So okay, two points during this show that didn’t feel any different from what WWE might do, but AEW isn’t and will never be “perfect” either. These are just two weak points that stand out on an honestly AWESOME card. Miro VS Kingston was an awesome opener, Moxley VS Kojima was the perfect follow-up, they fired the crowd up after that bit of a break after the Buy-In.

Baker VS Statlander being a kind of audible to me where we should’ve had maybe Baker VS Rosa here as a culmination of things, I wasn’t sure what to expect. But because Statlander is a top level competitor, and because of the character work from just Cassidy where he got so fired up for once, that really brought this match alive here. Britt with that shoutout to her man was a great bit of foreshadowing, she’s a master at that stuff. Britt of course retains because as I’ve been saying, we are going to get and need to have Britt VS Rosa again. But to a great surprise, Ruby Soho got to be the Joker AND win the Casino Battle Royale. A title feud is a great way to get Ruby going for fans to be reintroduced to her now that she isn’t in the WWE, but it’d be almost too much of a shock if Ruby took the title.

Tonight’s steel cage match was perhaps the best cage match in history. Because with it not allowing escape, they didn’t overly focus on the cage itself, and we just ended up with an amazing tag match that was also in a cage. Okay, it was odd for Bucks to try an escape when it was clearly stated escapes don’t matter, but perhaps that’s a nod to cage match instincts based on tradition. And in the end, the right decision was made, Lucha Bros get the belts and usher in a new chapter for the tag division. The Final Fight was of course not the final fight for Jericho, but I do really like that they made us think MJF was gonna win on a technicality. In order to think outside the box in wrestling these days, you have to wait until the last second to reveal the trick, and that was a great one.

Punk VS Darby was just about what I expected it to be and what it should’ve been. Punk was getting into the swing of things again, trying to build up to a good speed given Darby is so fast without even trying, and we got a good back and forth on Darby’s reckless nature working in his favor but then also costing him at times. Of course Punk wins, this is his return in his hometown, you GOT to give- Oh wait that’s Best Friends. Well no, you still give the people what they want for a time like this. All Out may’ve been hyped up mostly about this match, but the ups and downs of this can’t take away from the rest. This was a solid match with a lot of fan excitement, and welcome back, Punk.

Again, Wight VS QT was whatever, but I appreciated the promo time given to Moxley and Malakai to hype up this Wednesday in Cincinnati. Moxley VS Suzuki and Malakai VS Dustin are reasons to watch in themselves, that’s going to be a great night. And then the main event here, it felt a lot faster and quicker than it perhaps was, but that’s because there weren’t as many shenanigans as usual. Which makes sense, the Bucks were battered and Cutler had his time to shine with them. Omega wins here, as I figured he would, but how amazing it is to see that both Adam Cole and Bryan Danielson/Daniel Bryan chose AEW right now. Cole rejoining The Elite and Bryan standing against them is perfect to give even more momentum to year three. We honestly could be in the midst of a pro-wrestling turning point and not know it yet.

My Score: 9.6/10

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

Jun fires more hands, climbs up, and fans fire up with Jun! But Bryan throws body shots! And a HEADBUTT! Jun hops back, Bryan goes up, MISSILE- KNEE!! Jun counters and then reels Bryan in, PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives but Jun keeps his cool. Jun sits Bryan up for knee after knee, then runs, into a takedown! HALF CRAB! Jun endures but Bryan shifts his grip for an ANKLE LOCK! Jun endures again, reaches out, but Bryan reels him in! GERMAN SUPLEX!

Bryan huffs and puffs while the fans fire up! Jun sits up slowly and Bryan KICKS! And KICKS! And KICKS! The fans chant but Jun blocks! Jun CLUBS the leg, then EXPLODERS! The OG Exploder hits and Jun covers, TWO! GUILLOTINE CHOKE! Bryan is stuck in body scissors, too! Bryan fights, pushes, tries to stack but Jun keeps his own shoulders up! The fans rally and Bryan throws body shots! Bryan shifts and reaches out, ROPEBREAK! Jun lets go, and then runs up to KNEE Bryan! Bryan ROUNDHOUSES back! And then GERMAN SUPLEX! Jun is right back up! EXPLODER! SLIDING KNEE!!

Both men are down and the fans are thunderous! The fans count along with the standing count, and both men are down at 5 of 10. Bryan and Jun go to corners, the fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” Bryan and Jun stand at 8, and they run in, DOUBLE BUSAIKU KNEES!! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! Jun and Bryan rise, and Jun storms up to ROCK Bryan with a forearm! Bryan shakes his head, and he ROCKS Jun in return! Jun ROCKS Bryan again, so Bryan ROCKS Jun again! The fans rally as the forearms keep going back and forth! They go faster and faster, and June DECKS Bryan!

The fans fire up again as Jun waits on Bryan. Bryan sit sup, Jun brings him in, fisherman and- NO, Bryan fights and arm-drags free! Jun runs up but into a KNEE from Bryan! Jun falls over but Bryan shakes his head. Bryan goes to the corner, aims, “YES! YES! YES!” Jun rises up, Bryan runs in, BUSAIKU KNEE!! Cover, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall

The American Dragon survives the Japanese legend, and Eddie says he gives Bryan his due. Eddie’s problem with Bryan was never about his talent, the problem is Bryan’s problem with Eddie. Bryan gives Jun his due by shaking his hand. But then Bryan flips Eddie off! So Jun SLAPS Bryan! Jun doesn’t like the disrespect shown and Bryan apologizes. Bryan offers another handshake, Jun takes it, but Bryan LOW BLOWS Jun! Eddie runs up to TACKLE Bryan! The fans fire up as Eddie punches away on Bryan! The ref reprimands but Eddie doesn’t care, he just keeps hitting Bryan! But then Claudio runs up to tackle Eddie!

The BCC beats Eddie down, but then here comes FTR! Cash & Dax brawl with Claudio & Bryan! The fans fire up as FTR runs the BCC off! BREAKING NEWS via Tony Schiavone! Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

Trios Triple Threat: Private Party & Matt Sydal VS Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Bryan Keith, Komander & Penta El Zero Miedo!

With all the trios titles belonging to the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, many others are trying their hands at the trios game. Will Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen and the Zen Assassin open their third eyes? Will Dante, Darius & The Sight to See be flying high? Or will the Bounty Hunter, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion and The Man with No Fear steal the spotlight from them all?

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle. They tie up, go around, and Sydal headlocks for a takeover. Action stands up but Sydal hits another takeover. Sydal then snapmares but Action handsprings through! Fans cheer and the two go again. Sydal tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Action handsprings through again! Action dusts himself off, but Sydal runs up. Action wrenches, CHOPS, and then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG! Fans fire up as Action DROPKICKS Sydal down!

Action kips up and smiles while Top Flight talks some smack to Private Party. Action then runs and IMPLODER TORNILLOS onto Sydal! Cover, ONE, but Action tags Darius. They double whip Sydal, but Sydal KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS! Fans fire up with Sydal and he gets a “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant going. Sydal KICKS Darius’ leg over an dover, but Darius catches him to a pump-handle GUTBUSTER! Then GAMANGIRI! Sydal flounders away, Bryan Keith tags in! Keith runs up but Darius headlocks. Keith powers up and out, Darius RAMS him, but Keith rebounds to BOOT! Darius falls, Kassidy tags in!

The fans rally as Zay dodges Keith, fires “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” and then ROCKS Keith. Zay whips, Keith reverses, but Zay goes up and Quen tags in. Zay RANAS Keith into Quen’s GAMANGIRI! Then Quen springboards to SPLASH Keith! Cover, TWO! Keith is still in this and he tags out to Penta! The fans fire up as Penta somersaults in, but Quen shows he can somersault, too. The fans rally for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tells Quen to listen, CERO! MIEDO! Queen says okay, but “What do we want? SHOTS!” Quen shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove. The fans fire up, and Penta makes the pass to Alex Abrahantes!

Penta says again, CERO! MIEDO! Another pie face, but Dante tags in off Quen. Dante shoves Penta but then Komander tags in. Quen jumps on Dante, he and Penta mug him, and then everyone else rushes in! It’s a nine man melee and the ref reprimands them all! Things spill out, Dante and Komander stay in. Dante breaks free to JUMP KNEE, then runs, but Komander dodges! Dante mule kicks, whips, but Komander reverses to hook Dante up, COBRA TWIST, into a tilt-o-whirl RANA! Fans fire up as Dante flounders to a corner. Komander runs corner to corner but Dante dodges! Komander elbows back, then SUPERKICKS!

Dante flounders away, Komander jumps up top, and Komander tightrope walks to ARABIAN PRESS ARM-DRAG! Then a DROPKICK! The fans fire up as Komander covers, TWO! Komander tags Penta before he runs in, but Dante jumps up and over! Penta runs in to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Dante staggers up, into a SUPERKICK! Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

Komander feeds Dante to Keith’s fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, Zay breaks it! The fans rally, Quen tags in off Keith, and Quen stomps away on Action as Rampage goes picture in picture!

Quen stomps and stomps but the ref counts. Quen lets off to drag Action up and bump him off buckles. Quen runs up to RAM Action, then tags in Zay. Private Party keeps Action trapped, Zay ENZIGIRIS Action down! Zay stomps now, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Zay lets off to kick-step, then he tags Sydal. They stomp Action, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Sydal lets off to rally the fans, then he drags Action up. Action throws body shots but Sydal CLUBS him down. Sydal stands Action up again to back suplex, but Action lands out, only for Sydal to HEEL KICK! Tag to Quen and Quen slingshot SENTONS!

Rampage returns to single picture as Quen stomps Action back to the corner. Tag to Zay, Quen snap suplexes Action down for Zay to slingshot SENTON! Zay smirks and then drags Action up. Zay puts Action in the corner, CHOPS, then tags Quen. Private Party double whip Action to ropes, but Action ducks ‘n’ handsprings to DOUBLE BACK ELBOW! The fans fire up as Action and Private Party are all down. Action crawls, Quen grabs at a foot but hot tag to Dante! Dante rallies on Quen, whips, but Quen reveres. Quen runs in at the corner, Dante slips out to the apron and Quen hits buckles. Dante then goes up and around to GAMANGIRI!

Dante springboards to CROSSBODY! Cover, Keith breaks it! Darius runs up to CHOP Keith, but Keith ROCKS Darius! Keith runs, but Darius follows to HOTSHOT BULLDOG! And then GAMANGIRI! Darius steps in, but into a KNEE! Keith runs up to SHOTGUN Darius out of the ring! Keith pursues, but Action is there to go after Keith. Action fires forearms, Dante turns around to see Zay. Zay dodges Dante to then FLY out onto Keith, Darius & Action! Dante whips Sydal up and out but Komander tags in. Komander BOOTS Sydal, Dante BLASTS Penta, and Komander gets Sydal in an APRON ROMERO SPECIAL!

Dante builds speed and he FLIES over those two to wipe out Keith and his own teammates! Komander lets Sydal go, Sydal mule kicks Komander down! Sydal goes up the corner, to APRON METEORA! But Penta’s right there! APRON FEAR FACTOR!! Penta rises but Zay springboards, triangle jump STUNNER! Quen gets in, Zay gives him the boost to go up and up and SUPER SWANTON onto everyone else!! The fans are thunderous and Zay takes a bow. Zay then waits as Quen puts Penta in. Zay puts Penta up top, GAMANGIRIS, and then GIN ‘N’ JUICE DESTROYER!! Penta turned things right around on Private Party!

Keith runs in, Quen BOOTS him first, but Keith roars! Keith RISING HEADBUTTS to send Quen down! Penta sets up as Komander builds speed, BOOSTED TORNILLO onto the cluster outside!! The fans are thunderous again but Sydal rushes Penta! Penta sidesteps, Sydal springboards, but into a SUPERKICK! And then Penta tucks him back in, FEAR FACTOR!! Cover, Penta’s team wins!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & Bryan Keith, by pinfall

A huge win for this eccentric trio, will they be hunting down The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass? Or will they try for the Bullet Club Gold’s gold instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

After taking a week off for the NBA All-Star Game, Saturday nights are once again good for a fight. Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb each return to in-ring action, will these two rivals keep pace in the chase for gold? And we just saw Bryan Keith win big in the trios match, but he’ll jump right back into singles action against Malakai Black! Will the Bounty Hunter get another big win in his hunt for opportunity? Or will the Dark Father prove the House Always Wins?

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya and Harley and isn’t sure how much they’ve been watching Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker, but those two are off on their path of romance. Saraya DGAF about Soho x Parker!! She has things going on, too! That traitor isn’t getting under her skin even a little bit! Harley calms Saraya down, and they do breathing exercises. Why’s Harley flicking her tongue when she does that…? But Saraya wants to talk business. Y’know how her family is big famous wrestling royalty in the UK? Well, see, she has a special announcement. Her brother, “Zodiac” Zak Knight, has just become All Elite!!

Saraya has her brother walk into frame, and yeah, he’s scary, right? Zak could’ve been yours, Ruby! Saraya was gonna set Ruby up with him, “the most eligible bachelor in the Norwich area!” And Ruby messed that up just to be with that greasy, slimy, whatever Parker is! Harley says yeah! Just look at Zak! Isn’t he hot? He’s so hot! The whole Knight family is hot! Saraya is a bit taken aback by that, and she sprays water at Harley. Harley just embraces it so that doesn’t make for a good deterrent anymore… Saraya says it’s okay, Harley’s about to be fixed. But Saraya also promises, “Things are about to get really spicy around here.”

The Outcasts head out, and Zak’s scowl scares Renee a bit. Will Ruby & Parker regret making their romance public?

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson used, or rather abused, their power as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW to have an AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution. However, they are also very upset at the continued disrespect. Will that really stop after they take their frustrations out on these young indie guys?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Lyons. Nick doesn’t even bother taking off his trilby (or is it a fedora?) as he circles with Lyons. Nick calls for a knuckle lock but then kicks low and CLUBS away! The fans boo but Nick soaks it up. Nick whips Lyons, Lyons reverses but Matt tags in. Nick hurdles then whips Lyons, Lyons ducks Nick but Matt CLOBBERS him! Matt takes off his suit jacket to then drags Lyons up. Matt TOSSES Lyons to the corner, Lyons tags in Cappuccino! The fans fire up for Cappuccino as he circles with Matt. Matt mockingly applauds, also calls for a knuckle lock, but also kicks low!

Matt CLUBS away on Cappuccino, just like Nick, but then Matt cools off. Matt brings Cappuccino up to throw hands, whips him to ropes, but fakes the superkick to DDT instead! Fans boo but Matt drags Cappuccino up. Matt whips Cappuccino to the corner, he and Nick coordinate to LARIAT GAMANGIRI COMBO! Tag to Nick, he BLASTS Lyons, and then Matt whips Nick in so he can go up and over and PENALTY KICK Lyons! Matt stomps Cappuccino, stands him up, then HOTSHOTS him into Nick’s DISCUS LARIAT! Tag back to Matt and he drags Cappuccino up. The fans rally as hard as they can, but Cappuccino gets the MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Well, turns out they call that the “Tony Khan Driver” now, seems they don’t care to be associated with the Wrestling Observer anymore. But then they feel disrespected when the ref hesitates to raise their hands? Nick gets the mic to tell Paul Turner that when he raises their hand, what name did he use? Did he really just call him “Nick?” That is disrespectful! Next time, it’s a fine! And Schiavone, please, join them in the ring. Fans boo and Schiavone isn’t sure what to do. But they are EVPs, he doesn’t really have a choice… Schiavone joins the Bucks, and Nick promises they won’t harm him.

Last week, Schiavone was in the ring with them and Nick swears, he tripped on his own shoe, knocked into Schiavone and that is why Schiavone fell over. Nick wants to make it clear, and he apologizes for that. Matt says to show how sorry they are, and how much they love him, they got him a $25 Amazon gift card. They are sorry, Schiavone, but that isn’t the only thing they’re sorry about. See, they’re also sorry that, uh… they can’t get the bloodstains left by Darby Allin & Sting out of their $5,000 suits. Schiavone says yes, that is a problem… Will they rescind the $1,000 fine on them by any chance?

Sorry, no, they can’t do that. But there are a couple things that they won’t be sorry about. The first thing is beating the hell out of Darby for all the trash he talked about them publicly. The second thing, and this is one Schiavone will really like, is them taking Sting and pinning him to the mat, saying goodbye to one of the most legendary careers in all of pro-wrestling! Fans boo but Matt continues to tell “Stinger,” call them Father Time. Because just like time, the Bucks are undefeated. And just like time, the Bucks are coming for Sting! “Now everybody, let’s have a great show! There’s a great line-up on the way!

“Tony’s over there at the desk, he’s one of the best play by play guys in the business! C’mon, everybody! AEW chant on three? One, two, three! A E DUB! A E DUB! Alright, let’s go~!” Matt fist bumps Schiavone, then leaves with Nick. The farce continues, but will there be nothing even Darby & Sting can do about it? Or will the Icon still find a way to retire on top?

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Rampage returns and he welcomes a young man who has had a busy year. He’s a brand new father but fighting the Don Callis Family, it’s Sammy Guevara! Tulsa cheers as The Spanish God heads to the ring, back on his feet after the ambush by Will Hobbs. Schiavone shakes hands with Sammy, and Schiavone congratulates Sammy on last week’s win against Jeff Hardy. But now, to the comments Callis had for Sammy just last Wednesday Night Dynamite. The insults he hurled at Sammy, Callis clearly has it out for him.

Sammy says it is a mix of emotions. Last week, he got in the ring with a childhood hero in Jeff Hardy. But on the other hand, he’s pissed off because Hobbs put him through a table! Sammy tells Hobbs that Sammy always knew Hobbs had endless potential, and superstardom written all over him. But he can do that all on his own! Hobbs doesn’t need Callis sucking the life out of Hobbs’ career! Hobbs is a star all on his own, but it’s too late now for him to figure that out because he’s pissed Sammy off. So enough talk! Get your ass out here so they can fight! The Don Callis Family music plays, but it’s only Callis walking out here.

Callis has a mic to taunt Sammy, “Look, everybody! It’s Mr. Mom! You’re back at work after nursing the child. I mean, the only thing you’ve done of any note in the last six months is reproduce, and you shouldn’t be proud of that. Dogs do it. Even these people can do it!” Fans boo but Callis says Sammy used to be a great athlete. He used to be a guy Callis wanted in the Family. But now, Sammy has become like so many others: a weak, pathetic little cuck! Sammy doesn’t get what Callis is doing repeating himself, but then HOBBS gets in from the crowd side! Sammy dodges, SUPERKICKS, and Hobbs bails out!

Sammy eggs Hobbs on, then builds speed, to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Hobbs! Sammy says bang bang, and he gets a chair! Sammy winds up to SMACK Hobbs on the back! Hobbs hobbles but gets in the ring. Sammy pursues, aims again, and he JAMS Hobbs low! Then SMACKS him on the back! Sammy throws off the jacket, waits on Hobbs to turn around, but Hobbs fights off the torture rack to LARIAT Sammy inside out!! Callis smiles as he tells Hobbs to end this! SPINEBUSTER! And then another SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs is gonna do Sammy like he did Jericho! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!

Hobbs stands over Sammy and Callis applauds. The Powerhouse has all but pulverized Sammy, and Callis even gets his shots in! Will the Don Callis Family make sure there’s nothing left of Sammy to go home to his wife and daughter by the end of this?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“I had that match. I had it won, if it wasn’t for that bald headed, sad, poor excuse of a man, I would’ve had it and I deserved it. I had that win and I deserved it, on my own.” Julia Hart calms her down and says it’s okay. They will have their comeuppance. And while seeking their revenge, they will dig three graves: one for Willow, for Kris, and for Stokely. But who does Skye want first? Whoever will step up. Whoever has the balls enough to step up and fight her! Will the Chicago Skye continue to darken until she blots out the light?

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

Toni Storm’s superfan still wants to prove herself to her hero, but that really depends on if Storm is even watching this. Will Mariah finally have Storm’s approval? Or will the Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they go along the ropes. They end up in a corner, get out of a corner, and Mariah pulls hair. The ref counts, Mariah lets off and shoves Anna, but Anna doesn’t budge! Anna smirks as she and Mariah rest and tie up. Anna waistlocks, shoves, but Mariah slides to sweep the legs! Mariah runs but Anna dodges the dropkick! Anna runs to BLOCKBUSTER! Anna then ROCKS Mariah, whips her, but Mariah reverses to ROCK Anna! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah brings Anna around to bump off buckles, and CHOP again!

Mariah eggs Anna on so Anna CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then digs her boot in as Rampage goes picture in picture!

The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, and she brings Anna into ropes to hook her up. The ref counts as Mariah chinlocks Anna against ropes, but she lets off at 4. Mariah kisses Anna on the cheek, then runs to DROPKICK Anna in the back! Anna falls out of the ropes and Mariah soaks up the heat. Mariah stands Anna up, runs, and SHOTGUNS her down! Anna flounders out of the ring and Mariah takes a bow. Mariah then goes out to stalk Anna, and she brings Anna around the way. Mariah puts Anna against barriers to CHOP her! And SPANK her! Mariah laughs while Anna hobbles away. Mariah pursues to then CHOP again!

Anna is stinging while Mariah dusts herself off. Mariah hears the count but she whips Anna into the barriers first! Mariah then leaves Anna behind and “apologizes” to the ref. Mariah goes back out after Anna, soaks up the heat, and vogues for the camera. But Anna throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS back! Mariah pushes Anna into the ring, takes her time posing before going back in, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Anna whips Mariah to a corner. Mariah slips out to the apron, avoids Anna’s haymaker, and ROUNDHOUSES in return! Anna staggers, Mariah shouts and climbs up, but Anna ROCKS her! Anna then gets space, runs up, and HEEL KICKS! Anna then wrenches the arms, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Anna grows frustrated but she drags Mariah up and hooks the arms. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

Anna hops on as a backpack, but Mariah RAMS her into buckles! Mariah is free, and she puts Anna up top. Mariah DOUBLE CHOPS, then gets some space. Mariah runs up to STRATUSPHERE! Anna flounders away and Mariah shouts out Storm! Mariah runs up, but the hip attack misses! Anna runs up to kick, dragon sleeper, and BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO?!? Mariah survives and Anna grows frustrated! The fans rally as Anna sits Mariah up, into the QUEEN- NO, Mariah blocks the sleeper! Anna fights through to have the QUEENSLAYER! Mariah flails, reaches out, but she BITES Anna’s arm!!

The ref reprimands but Mariah is free all the same! Fireman’s carry, MAYDAY DRIVER!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

One thing is for sure, Mariah is just as looney as her role model! Will she follow in Storm’s footsteps to become a champion in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is with the lovey-dovey couple, how’d the date go? Ruby says she felt it went really well. Parker is relieved, he didn’t wanna say it first and be wrong. It was incredible, everything he hoped it’d be, he had a great time. Renee points out that in the opposite direction, Saraya is becoming unraveled. If they didn’t hear her comments earlier, she had some rather choice words. And apparently, she was going to hook Ruby up with her brother? Ruby says that’s weird and Renee agrees. Plus, Zak is more like a poor man’s Tom Hardy, big pass. Parker isn’t sure being Norwich’s Most Eligible Bachelor is a bad of honor, either. And honestly, “wrestling royalty?” That’s a stretch.

Ruby tells Saraya that she said she doesn’t care, that Ruby doesn’t get under her skin, but here’s the reality: for the last year, Saraya told Ruby that Ruby needed Saraya, when it was really the other way around. Saraya is sad and unhappy without Ruby. And say all you want about Ruby, but talk bad on Parker and that’s when they have problems. Ruby said she needed space, and in that space, she found something real. And Saraya may be sick of hearing it, of seeing it, but hey, why not invite everyone along? Bring the cameras, bring the crew, and they’ll shove this right down Saraya’s throat!

Parker’s pretty fired up. He says Ruby’s hot when she’s mad. Ruby thanks him for the compliment, and the two head out to get some drinks. Will they make Saraya so sick of love she’ll never dare speak their names again?

 

Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Jake Hager w/ Hornsby!

The Undisputed Kingdom were bullying Orange Cassidy, and apparently the Big Hurt didn’t like seeing that. Will Oklahoma’s own break the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will Roddy be too strong even for the All-American Sooner?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hager and Hornsby. Roddy and Hager circle, tie up, and Hager powers Roddy to a corner. Roddy slips free, shoves Hager, and fans boo. The two reset, they circle again, and Roddy gets around to waistlock. Roddy then turns Hager around to CHOP, but Hager doesn’t budge! Fans fire up and Roddy is a bit scared, so Roddy bails out. The Kingdom pep talk Roddy while the ring count climbs. Roddy hurries in, dodges Hager, then things speed up. Roddy leaps but Hager catches him! Hager puts Roddy in a corner, runs up but into a BOOT! Roddy CHOPS, but Hager catches it?!

Fans fire up as Hager TOSSES Roddy, then CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! Hager whips corner to corner hard, runs up, but Rodd bails out again! Hager snarls, goes out after Roddy, and stalks him around the way. Matt Menard’s on commentary, he says watch out for “these bozos,” Taven & Bennett. Hager stares them down as he walks past, then fires off on Roddy! Roddy tumbles, Hager puts him in the ring, but Roddy KICKS Hager in the ropes! Roddy CLUBS away on Hager, then tells Tulsa to shut up! Roddy runs, but into a BOOT! Hager storms up, puts Roddy in a corner, and then TOSSES him across the ring!

The fans fire up as Hager LARIATS Roddy down! Cover, TWO! Roddy stays in this but Hager digs his knees into Roddy! Roddy flails and reaches out but Hager traps the arms. The ref counts as that knee gets a bit high on the chest and into the neck area. Hager lets off, but he puts Roddy in a corner to fire off body shots! Roddy staggers away as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Hornsby cheers Hager on as he clotheslines Roddy in the corner! Hager ROCKS Roddy while talking trash to The Kingdom, then he hauls Roddy up top. Hager climbs, brings Roddy up, but Roddy clubs at Hager’s leg. Roddy throws body shots, slips underneath, and then kicks the legs out! Hager ends up stuck in the ropes, and Roddy runs to STRONG KNEE him in the back! Hager falls and Roddy stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Roddy lets off to flex, but only The Kingdom cheers him on. Roddy stands on Hager in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, but then he springboard stomps Hager down!

Roddy gets the legs and has Hager in ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager sputters, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down by dropping knees, then he digs a knee into Hager’s back. Roddy has the chinlock but Hager endures and fights up. The fans rally, Hager throws body shots, and then Hager runs, but into a DROPKICK! Roddy hurries to cover, TWO! Roddy drags Hager from ropes, stomps him, then paces around while The Kingdom talks trash on Hager. Roddy glares at Hornsby but Hornsby dares him to do something! Roddy goes back to Hager to rain down fists! Roddy then lets off to put Hager in a corner.

Taven seems to be talking trash on Hornsby, probably calling him a Melvin like does everyone. Roddy stands Hager up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he scoops to BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down with another chinlock, again digging in a knee. Hager endures, fights up, and Rampage returns to single picture. Hager throws body shots and is free, but Roddy CLUBS, KNEES and runs, but into a lift! Roddy sunset flips, Hager stays up and he drags Roddy up to TOSS to a corner! Roddy BOOTS, ENZIGIRIS and then OLYMPIC SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Roddy grows frustrated as Hager stays in this.

Hornsby smacks the steel steps to rally the fans, and now Bennett glares at him. And then Taven comes in from the other side, Hornsby realizes he’s in a 2v1 situation here. Hornsby wants them to calm down, but then he pulls out a SUPER CONFETTI POPPER! It goes off and Hornsby says take that! The Kingdom still storms up on him, but here comes Orange Cassidy! The AEW International Champion is returning the favor to Hager by helping out his buddy. The Kingdom says fine, bring it then! Cassidy says hold on, he has THE HAT! He throws the purple bucket hat into Hager, and Hager loves that hat!

Cassidy then dodges Taven, shoves him into Bennett, and down they go! Cassidy rains down fists, and Hager powers up with the hat!! Roddy runs up but Hager LARIATS! And LARIATS! And OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! The fans are thunderous as Hager says, “I like this hat!!” Then Hager runs corner to corner, goes up and up, and hits the HAGER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Hager snarls! But Taven sends Cassidy into railing! The 2v1 has gotten the better of Cassidy, and Roddy JAWBREAKERS Hager! Hager staggers, Roddy storms up, OLYMP- NO, Hager slips free to GUT RWENCH BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Roddy survives, but Hager has the ANKLE LOCK!! Roddy flails, rolls over, and he kicks from below! Hager still holds on, ANKLE LOCK! Roddy flails, reaches out, but Taven throws Cassidy into the ring! The ref is distracted by that, Taven & Bennett get on the apron but Hager CLOBBERS them both! Roddy STRONG KNEES!! Hager falls, Roddy covers, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

Despite having back-up and the power-up, Hager still couldn’t beat the numbers game! Roddy is rolling towards Revolution, will he be taking the International title away from Cassidy?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage that was again booked to have story. The Bucks of course won their match, but they did what I was hoping they’d do in changing up their style. They purposefully didn’t use superkicks, and then they are apparently changing up the names of their finishers as if to say Heel Bucks don’t care about their YouTube show or Dave Meltzer. Their post match promo was good, too, but it didn’t really add too much more to the heat they’ve already got. And pretty good promos out of this Ruby VS Saraya story. I thought Ruby VS Saraya was just going to be the thing, but now it feels like they might give us a Mixed Tag of Ruby & Parker VS Saraya & Zak.

Really good Trios Triple Threat to open, and I love that it was Keith, Komander & Penta winning rather than taking a loss to the established-ish trios. The feud of Private Party and Top Flight really needs to be settled by just those teams anyway. Pretty good promo from Sammy Guevara to call out the Don Callis Family, but of course it turned into Hobbs beating Sammy up. Good promo from Skye and Julia, I really thought AEW would’ve figured out a contender to the TBS Championship by now, but maybe that’ll happen very quickly in the next week. Really good match from Mariah May and Anna Jay, and a really good win for Mariah. But you can bet Storm didn’t pay attention to this at all, just like the other times.

And very good main event from Hager VS Roddy, with The Kingdom of course overbooking this. The bit with Hornsby was fun, and Cassidy showing up was also a logical move. I like that Hager’s hat is now the same as Cassidy putting hands in his pockets, but of course Hager lost out. Roddy needs momentum going into the title match so he had to win this one, and he probably just waits it out while Cassidy gets worn down. But at this point, it’ll probably still take a lot of cheating for Roddy to win the International title and bring it into The Undisputed Kingdom.

My Score: 8.7/10
