The last time Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler were in the ring with Proud ‘n’ Powerful, things got downright scary. But Cash has the courage to fight past his fear and take on PNP once more! Will FTR open Dynamite #100 with a triumphant return? Or will the Inner Circle stay strong as we head for All Out?

Winners: Santana & Ortiz, by pinfall

The Inner Circle is triumphant again! Santana & Ortiz just went to war with FTR and won out, does this put Proud ‘n’ Powerful in position to challenge whoever wins All Out’s tag title steel cage match?

 

AEW hears from Daniel Garcia and 2point0.

Matt Lee is fired up as he calls out Darby Allin. “You got Punk on the mind, don’t ya?” But do NOT look past their “son,” Daniel Garcia. Jeff Parker adds that you certainly don’t look ahead to Sunday, and arguably the biggest match in AEW history. Darby VS Punk, Parker’s excited, just not for the match. What Parker’s excited for how they can be the ones to take that match away from the fans! Garcia speaks up now, telling Darby that this Friday, on Rampage, “when I take you down to the mat and twist your body into the most uncomfortable ways that I can imagine, I am going to hurt you.” Red Death says there is not a shot Darby makes it to All Out, but will he be the one feeling the pain on Friday?

 

CM Punk is here!

The fans are thunderous for the Best in the World as he heads to the ring this close to his in-ring return. Punk gets the mic but takes a moment to revel in the fans chanting for him. “Are you guys sick of me yet? Because I gotta tell ya, this is too good to be true.” Punk could spend weeks, months even, just hearing Cult of Personality and feeling the love. There might even be some people out there who get tired of it real fast, but Punk ain’t one of them. Punk’s going to enjoy this while it lasts, because he knows that Sunday, in this very same building, “this could all end for me.” Punk is just being realistic, as he hasn’t wrestled in seven years, and is nervous, maybe even scared.

Fans assure Punk, “You Still Got It!” and he crosses his fingers in hopes of that. But knowing it could end, Punk wants to promise us this: every time he laces up his boots, every time he comes down the aisle, he will give us his very best. But wait! Garcia and 2point0 jump Punk! Punk does his best to fight them off but this is 3v1! They mug Punk as fans boo, stomping and hammering him again and again! This is another part of their plan to cancel the highly anticipated All Out match! But here comes Darby and Sting! Garcia and 2point0 get what shots they can in on Punk, then they brawl with Sting and Darby! Darby POSTS Garcia!

Punk and Sting fight off 2point0! Punk rains down fists on Parker in the corner, Sting DECKS Lee and has him in a corner, and Darby throws Garcia into the ring! Darby climbs a corner while Sting gets Lee in the dragon sleeper! Punk has Parker in a facelock and sees what’s going on around him, so he fireman’s carries Parker! COFFIN DROP! SCORPION DEATH DROP! And G T S!! Fans are thunderous again as Punk and Darby stand tall but also stare down. Sting gets a mic and Punk clears the ring of 2point0 so the Icon can speak. Sting says, “I gotta admit, I always did want to share a ring with you. Mucho respect, okay?” Their paths never did cross, even after all this time.

But that was then, this is now. And speaking of now, it felt really good for Sting to see the Go To Sleep happen right in front of him. It felt good to see a Coffin Drop, and it felt good to hit a Death Drop again. Sting says it just felt good to clear traffic, because they have the same goal in mind. They all want to see Punk VS Darby at All Out. Now things are out of the way, and that must include Sting. Darby is ready to go mano a mano, so Sting is going to fist bump his tag partner and head to the back. At All Out, when Darby and Punk collide, “it’s gonna be showtime for sure.” Sting steps away so Darby and Punk can stare down again. Is Punk as ready as the Relentless One to go all out in the ring?

 

AEW profiles Kenny Omega VS Christian Cage.

Excalibur says, “For many years, Kenny Omega was known as one of the best wrestlers in the world, if not the best wrestler in the world.” JR adds that Omega’s maintained this “strangle hold on the AEW World title is because he’s just that damn good.” JR says Omega is the best singles wrestler in the world and Excalibur notes that not many can say they’ve beaten Omega in an AEW ring. But Christian Cage is one of them. Paul Wight notes Christian’s undefeated streak in AEW, and how he pinned Omega for the Impact World Championship on Rampage’s debut.

Mark Henry says Christian has charisma and talent, but Tony Schiavone asks, “How can you say Kenny Omega’s gonna lose a big match?” Taz says this match will be unbelievable. Wight says Christian going into a PPV with this level of momentum might make All Out “the worst night in Kenny Omega’s life.” What happens when Captain Charisma tries to take Big Platinum from the Best Bout Machine on AEW’s biggest show of the year?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews MJF.

This Sunday, “Chris Jericho puts his career on the line against this man, the most disgusting, despicable human being that I’ve ever been around in my life,” and doing this interview is not something comfortable for Schiavone to do. But MJF says, “What an intro, Tony, such a professional.” MJF lists the various nicknames: “Cowboy Chris,” the Lionheart, the Man of 1004 Holds, the Sexy Beast, the Ayatollah of Rock ‘n Rolla, the Best in the World at What He Does, the Painmaker, the GOAT, Le Champion, the Demo God, Chris Jericho. Four decades of consistently evolving to stay at the top and being universally known as the greatest, Jericho’s career is unparalleled.

And whether or not MJF, Jericho’s “greatest rival,” cares to admit it, Jericho’s name is forever etched into the Mount Rushmore of pro-wrestling. But let’s not get it twisted. By the time MJF’s career is said and done, he will be taking Jericho’s place. And it will take fans a long time to get used to that, but MJF doesn’t mind being everyone’s “pro-wrestling stepdad”. MJF has big shoes to fill, that’s no easy feat. Muhammad Ali was once considered the greatest boxer, but he thought that one too many times. Ali kept coming back and coming back for the spotlight until his brains were scrambled eggs and his body was a shell of what it once was.

“Look in the mirror, Jericho.” After all MJF has put Jericho through, Jericho is like Ali. His legs are shaky, his back is aching, and it takes him five hours to get to sleep at night and a whole lot longer to get out of bed in the morning! MJF says Jericho is on a downward spiral! But just like Ali, Jericho’s an addict. Jericho needs the spotlight. Jericho craves it, because it is oh so intoxicating. MJF has taken that from Jericho three times already, “and when a man like you loses that spotlight, you’re willing to do just about anything to get it back.” That’s why Jericho is doing this. That’s why on September 5th, All Out, MJF will have the honor and privilege of ending one of the greatest runs in pro-wrestling!

MJF says it is so poetic that the same yearning that got Jericho “to the dance” will be the same reason his music dies. The Salt of the Earth isn’t pulling any punches, will he be the one to put Jericho’s lights out once and for all?

 

Orange Cassidy VS Jack Evans w/ Matt Hardy!

Freshly Squeezed has been getting closer and closer to shutting down the Hardy Family Office, but not even a broken nose and busted face can keep Big Money Matt down. Speaking of which, Hardy goes right after Cassidy the second he’s in the ring! The ref has to pull Hardy away, and then EJECTS him! Now Cassidy and Evans will be truly 1v1! Will Jack Evans’ body pay for the check Hardy’s anger just wrote for him?

Cassidy is still okay to compete so the bell rings, and Evans SCREW HIGH KICKS him down! Evans hammers away on Cassidy, wrenches and knees him to ropes, then whips him for a big jump kick! Evans kips up to show off, then he runs at Cassidy in a corner. Handspring back elbow, then a snap suplex! Evans rains down rights, stomps Cassidy down, then brings him up to CLUB him on the back. Evans KICKS Cassidy down but fans boo. Evans drags Cassidy back up, throws muay thai knees, then has Cassidy in the corner. Evans goes corner to corner again but Cassidy dumps him out hard! Evans gets back up to springboard, but Cassidy ducks under!

Cassidy speeds up, ducks, dodges and redirects to dodge again! Tilt-o-whirl DDT! Cover, TWO!! Evans survives but Cassidy keeps cool. Cassidy takes off the armband but Evans bails out. So Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit into railing, and Cassidy puts Evans in the ring. Cassidy goes up top and leaps for a BIG crossbody! Cover, TWO! Evans staggers up into a scoop, MICHINOKU DRIVER! Cover, TWO! Cassidy gives those devastating kicks to Evans! As well as the air between them! Evans rushes in, Cassidy gets around to a waistlock, but Evans switches. Cassidy switches, Evans switches back, and again, and again, and again! Evans is getting annoyed but the switching continues!

Cassidy shoves Evans into a corner, runs in but is put on the apron. Cassidy bumps Evans off buckles, fans fire up as he climbs again, but Evans ROCKS Cassidy first! Evans fires off hands, climbs up top, then stands Cassidy up. Cassidy blocks the superplex and throws body shots as AEW goes picture in picture.

Cassidy adjusts position, Evans throws hands then shifts position himself. Evans has Cassidy on the inside, but Cassidy still blocks his suplex. Cassidy throws body shot after body shot after body shot! Evans elbows Cassidy in the head over and over! Evans jumps up and over and comes back but into a mule kick! Cassidy adjusts, Evans goes up, SPIDER GERMAN SUPLEX! Cassidy lands hard, staggers up, but Evans CORKSCREW QUEBRADAS! Cover, TWO!! Cassidy survives but Evans sits him up for a PENALTY KICK! Evans drags Cassidy up to PENALY KICK again! Evans still isn’t done, he gets Cassidy up for a stalling suplex! Evans sits Cassidy up again for a third PENALTY KICK!

Evans stands Cassidy up again, but Cassidy cradle counters! Cassidy wins!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

Well, that was outta nowhere! Evans is furious and arguing about things, but the count was the count! Hardy rushes back out now that the ringside ban is over, and he CLOBBERS Cassidy! Hardy rains down furious fists then drags Cassidy up. But here come Best Friends! Chuck Taylor and Wheeler Yuta run off Hardy, but here comes the rest of the HFO! The Private Party, Angelico and The Blade all mug Cassidy, Chuck and Yuta! But here comes Jurassic Express! Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus and Marko Stunt have their own beef with the HFO, will they become honorary Best Friends in this battle against Big Money Matt and his henchmen?

 

AEW profiles Miro VS Eddie Kingston.

The Mad King knows the AEW TNT Champion thinks of himself as God’s Favorite Champion, but then says, “Why is the DDT your Kryptonite? Because your neck is the Kryptonite!” Kingston promises to go after that neck, and everything Miro loves and desire, such as the TNT title. Without that title, Miro’s no longer anyone’s favorite. But Kingston wants Miro to take his hand as they “walk through Hell together.” And if Miro makes it through, then maybe Miro can go to Heaven.

Miro counters now. “Kingston’s talking about DDT’s and Kryptonite. God’s Favorite Champion stays down only for his wife in our hotel room after a victory.” The Mad King is going to realize redemption comes through agony, and Miro will bring both! “This is the word of the Redeemer.” But will Kingston make Miro eat his words along with an Uraken back hand?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“Everybody wants a piece of AEW, they’re coming from everywhere. I think it’s time we send a message about who’s still at the top of the food chain in AEW!” Moxley got his FedEx back from Tokyo, and one contract was signed. Only one man had the balls to step through the “forbidden door” and “chase the bogeyman.” That man is Satoshi Kojima. What a treat for the fans to see a NJPW legend in person. But then Moxley was insulted, realizing that only some “crazy old man” was willing to go toe-to-toe with him. Once the bell rings, there’s no respect. Moxley wants to take someone’s head off.

Every time he drops someone on their head, he is trying to break their neck! Every time he squeezes the throat, he wants to break their esophagus. So in Chicago, Moxley is coming for Kojima’s scalp! Has Kojima bitten off more than he can chew accepting the Maniac’s open challenge?

 

Jim Ross is in the ring.

Fans cheer but Good Ol’ JR admits he is feeling bittersweet. This is his first in-ring interview with AEW, and he will be talking to one of his longest term wrestling friends. JR personally feels what is happening is a bad decision, but we’ll hear why from this future hall of famer, the MVP of AEW, Chris Jericho! Fans cheer as and sing Judas for Le Champion as he makes his entrance. Jericho says he wants to say something he hasn’t said in a long time. “Welcome to, Chicago Is Jericho!” Jericho felt it was a good time to call back to the past, since 22 years ago, he started his “main event journey” in the business in Chicago!

It was at the All State Arena, and the man who recruited him for that journey is Good Ol’ JR! That is why Jericho wants JR out here for this moment. JR says it is an honor, but he wants to ask, why is Jericho putting this on himself? If Jericho loses, he stops wrestling in AEW. Why is this the stipulation? Jericho remembers that day when he signed with JR, and that is a good question. But first off, “MJF, you are a piece of shit!” Fans cheer for that one! Jericho says MJF is diabolical and calculating, just like him, and MJF is also a button-pusher, just like Jericho. MJF is confident and arrogant, but so is Jericho. The only thing MJF has over Jericho are those three wins.

Jericho remembers them exactly: 11/7/2020; 5/5/2021; and 8/18/2021. “Those dates are burned in my brain, JR.” Jericho can’t let this go, so that is why he has to put it all on the line to beat MJF. Jericho has never been complacent, it’s why he’s in AEW in the first place. Jericho first came here about three years ago, there was no guarantee AEW was going to succeed. JR was there, there was no guarantee this was going to be a success. And yet, here we are! Episode 100 of Dynamite “as the hottest wrestling company in the world today!” Fans chant for Jericho and “A E DUB!” as Jericho says if he hadn’t taken this chance, he’d be kicking himself for being complacent.

Sure, Jericho could just stay in AEW a long time, have a lot more great matches, win a lot more championships, but every time he looks in the mirror, he’d know, “You couldn’t beat MJF!” Fans boo that but Jericho says he couldn’t live with that. That’d be the beginning of the end of Le Champion and Jericho’s time in this ring. But Jericho doesn’t want it to be the end! Jericho wants more, he never wants to stop! Fans chant “WE WANT MORE!” and he says this is why he has to take this chance. If something horrible happens and the journey ends where it began, “then so be it.”

Jericho will go to commentary and do his best there full-time, and thank all the fans around the world for helping him make his dreams come true. Then Jericho will thank us for letting him be a part of our lives, and for being a big part of his. “But before that happens, remember Max. You’re not gonna take this away from me! You will not take this away from me! If you want Chris Jericho out of this ring, you’re gonna have to be the best you’ve ever been!” MJF will have to be the best MJF has ever been, breaking every bone in Jericho’s body and squeezing ever breath out of Jericho’s lungs!

But it won’t happen, though, because he IS Chris Jericho! And MJF doesn’t have the BALLS to get rid of him! “See you on Sunday, at All Out, ya little prick!” Jericho is the most fired up he’s ever been in his illustrious career! Will Sunday be Jericho’s finale? Or just another epic reinvigoration?

 

AEW profiles Darby Allin VS CM Punk.

Darby says, “CM Punk said if he was 15 years old, Darby Allin would’ve been his favorite wrestler. Well, when Darby Allin was 15 years old, CM Punk was his favorite wrestler.” But seven years ago, Punk left, and that is when Darby entered pro-wrestling himself. Then Punk said something Darby didn’t really like: Punk said Darby was first on his list. Darby says that is Punk already overlooking him. Punk has seen what Darby’s willing to do, and it is stuff Punk’s never even felt in that ring. So Punk saying Darby was first on the list when Darby should’ve been last on the list, now Darby knows what he needs to do. Darby needs to do the impossible: beat CM Punk in Chicago, or die trying.

 

Brian Cage VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs w/ Team Taz!

The Machine knows with Hook in Hobbs’ corner, it is only a matter of time before Team Taz goes after him all together. So that’s why Cage is hitting Hobbs first at the ramp! Taz is on commentary and protesting that this is “typical Cage,” doing things the cowardly way! Cage bumps Hobbs off the apron, but Hobbs hits back with forearms. The behemoths brawl as the ref tells them to get in the ring, but Cage bumps Hobbs off the apron again. Cage whips Hobbs hard into railing! The ref keeps telling Cage to get in the ring but Cage whips Hobbs hard into railing again! Cage throws haymakers and knees into Hobbs before putting him in the ring.

The bell finally rings, Cage gets Hobbs up but Hobbs gets away. Cage pursues as they go back out the ring, and Hook plays roadblock. Taz says Cage better not hit his son, but Cage just goes back into the ring to go after Hobbs. Hobbs drops elbows then ax handles over and over. Hobbs steadies himself, drags Cage back up, but Cage scoops first! Hobbs slips out, shoves Cage and then CLOBBERS him with a full body check! “Who betta?!” Hobbs says, mocking Cage’s own catchphrase. Hobbs chokes Cage on the ropes while AEW goes picture in picture.

The ref reprimands, Hobbs lets off, then digs his knee into Cage! The ref counts, Hobbs lets off again and Cage flounders in the corner. Hobbs whips Cage corner to corner, then runs in to clothesline! Hobbs digs his fingers into Cage’s face and talks trash but the ref counts. Hobbs stops to whip Cage corner to corner again. Cage goes up and over and even somersaults before running back in! Uppercut, gamangiri and GER- No! Hobbs elbows free of the waistlock to then CLOBBER Cage again! Hobbs drops knees over and over, targeting the ribs. Hobbs digs a knee into Cage’s side while pulling him in with a headlock! Cage endures, Hobbs lets off and then soaks up the heat.

Hobbs grins as he looms over Cage. Hobbs stomps Cage but Cage throws body shots. Cage fights up and throws hands, then catches Hobbs’ clothesline into a clinch. Hobbs fights off the lift with elbows, then LARIATS Cage down! Hobbs catches his breath before he stands over Cage. Hobbs rains down fists, drags Cage up to the ropes to choke him again, but lets off as the ref counts 4. Hobbs smirks again as he yanks the ropes and snaps Cage back. Hobbs KICKS Cage in the side, talks trash as he stands over Cage, and then brings Cage back up. AEW returns to single picture as Hobbs ROCKS Cage with a right.

Hobbs RAMS Cage into the corner, throws his shoulders in more, then gives a quick headbutt as he lets off. Hobbs brings Cage around, reels him in and puts one out, but Cage fights out to fireman’s carry! Hobbs slips out to waistlock, Cage switches to half nelson, COMPLETE SHOT! Both behemoths are down and a standing count begins. Fans rally up as both men go to opposite sides of the ring. Hobbs and Cage use the ropes to stand up, and they run at each other! DOUBLE CLOTHESLINES, but neither man falls! Another DOUBLE CLOTHESLINES, then Cage boots away Hobbs’ next clothesline to mule kick and front kick to SUPERKICK!

Hobbs staggers, Cage clinches, EXPLODER! Fans fire up with Cage as he uppercuts, gamangiris and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Cover, TWO! Cage keeps his cool as he paces. Cage slashes the throat, drags Hobbs up, but Hobs wrenches out and RAMS shoulders! Hobbs scoops, Cage slips off and schoolboys. Hobbs rolls through, ducks the discus, SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Cage survives and Hobbs is furious! Hook tells Hobbs to finish this and Hobbs tells the ref to back off. Hobbs glares down at Cage and eggs him on. Cage sits up but Hobbs brings him up, only for Cage to JUMP KNEE! Fireman’s carry, F5!! Cage fires up but Hobbs goes to the apron!

Cage gets Hobbs, brings him to a corner, and then DEAD LIFT SUPERPLEXES Hobbs up and in!! “WHO BETTA?!” Fans fire up behind Cage as he drags Hobbs up again. Hook distracts the ref, Hobbs fights the suplex to shove Cage, into a BELT SHOT from Ricky Starks! When did Ricky get here!? Hobbs scoops Cage, for TOWN BIDNESS! Cover, Hobbs wins!!

Winner: Will Hobbs, by pinfall

Taz says THAT is teamwork, and Starks pretends to be shocked! Cage lost an unofficial handicap match, will he ever get a fair shake against the team that betrayed him?

 

Malakai Black speaks.

“What a weird narrative to spin, Mr. Johnson.” Supposedly, Malakai left the ring because Lee Johnson showed up? No, Malakai left because he is the one who dictates the pace. Since then, it has been seven days. “Seven days to atone for interrupting me.” Malakai wants us to know he actually showed mercy to Cody Rhodes, and to Arn and Brock Anderson, because he granted them “a swift death.” Johnson will not be so lucky, however. Malakai plans to make Johnson suffer. Then a coin will be placed on each of Johnson’s eyelids, so that when he is sent down to Hades, Johnson can pay the boat man’s toll. Will Big Shotty’s offense have little affect on the man from the House of Black?

 

The Factory is in the ring.

QT Marshall says “What we don’t do on Dynamite is stand on the stage like a bunch of little kids and laugh at QT Marshall.” So Paul Wight, get your big ass out here and try to laugh in QT’s face, man to man, “heavyweight to heavyweight.” Wight makes his way to the ring, not caring that QT has added to the numbers of The Factory since last time. Wight gets right in the ring, and the Factory swarms him! QT stays back to bark orders, but Wight EXPLODES out of the corner! Wight DECKS one Factory flunky, runs over both Comoroto and the next biggest guy at the same time, then choke grips the final newbie for a CHOKE SLAM!

Aaron Solo is up top, he LEAPS at Wight, but Wight SWATS him like a fly! QT has bailed out long before Gunn Club rushes out there to even the odds. QT has a chair, but the Gunn Club boys gets at him and takes away that chair! Fans chant, “QT SUCKS! QT SUCKS!” and now there’s only the All Out showdown- WAIT! Billy Gunn just gives Wight a chairshot to the back?! Why!? QT himself is shocked, but Wight gets up again. Gunn HEAD SHOTS Wight with the chair!! QT legitimately has no idea why the Gunn Club just betrayed the Giant, but his Factory is still taking advantage! They get Wight up for QT to hit the DIAMOND CUTTER! Will QT be even more of a vulture come All Out?

 

Schiavone interviews Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter & Rebel backstage.

What is this big news she has for AEW? The Doctor and AEW Women’s World Champion says “We’re finally going to add some star power to this Women’s Casino Battle Royale, because two of the most prestigious females in all of wrestling are gonna be in it.” And she is of course talking about Rebel and Jamie. If one of them- Well ok if Jamie wins, then this title is going nowhere because Jamie is on Britt’s side. This title is staying right with Britt. Isn’t Britt underestimating her challenger, Kris Statlander? Statlander is undefeated since her return.

That brings Britt to her next big news for free agency. One of the hottest stars in all of wrestling today has just signed a long term contract with AEW, guaranteed to keep these ratings sky high. That person is… Britt! She’s staying around in AEW a lot longer, because Tony Khan realized that with Britt as champion and AEW’s golden girl, and is now allowing her to make matches! So this Friday will be a feast as Jamie & Rebel take on Kris Statlander 2v1. Oh, how unfortunate that it’s just two days before the PPV! Hopefully Statlander doesn’t get hurt. See you Friday, Kris. Yours truly, Britt Baker, DMD. Will the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien make it through the sidekicks to still go after the champion?

 

Tay Conti VS Penelope Ford w/ The Bunny!

Speaking of the Women’s Casino Battle Royale, the Brazilian Blackbelt Beauty, the Superbad Girl and the HFO’s Allie are all going to be competing for that title opportunity. However, Ford and Bunny are willing to work together as a bad girls club if it means keeping Conti out of contention. Will Conti make sure there’s a Tay-KO in Ford’s immediate future to change the course of things?

Conti sees Ford and Bunny talking on the outside, and decides to CROSSBODY them both down! Fans fire up with Conti as she drags Ford up and into the ring. The bell rings, Ford rushes in but Conti spins her around for drop sayanagi after drop sayanagi! Conti gets Ford up again and blocks a forearm to a wrench, spin and wristlock. Bunny coaches Ford but Conti wrenches again to spin and cravat Ford for knees! Conti spins Ford again to a dragon sleeper for clubbing forearms! Conti is having fun with Ford now as she clubs her over and over, to a BACK2BACK BREAKER! Cover, TWO! Ford swings into another wrench, scoop and swinging FACEBUSTER!

Ford staggers, Conti BOOTS her down! Cover, TWO! Bunny is frustrated on behalf of Ford but Conti keeps her cool. Conti drags Ford up, whips her to a corner, but Ford reverses. Ford runs in but Conti BOOTS her again! Conti goes up and up but Ford trips her up! Conti falls to the mat! Cover as AEW goes picture in picture, TWO!

Ford fumes but she kicks Conti in the back. Ford hooks arms, drags Conti up and bumps her hard off buckles. Ford drags Conti around to then dig her boots in at the corner. The ref counts, Ford lets off and Bunny pulls Conti’s hair! Bunny gets away with it before Ford comes back to bring Conti up. Ford chokes Conti on ropes, lets off as the ref counts 4, then KICKS Conti against the ropes! Conti flounders, Ford HOTSHOTS Conti! Ford then runs to dropkick Conti in the back! Conti flops to the apron, Ford catches her breath, then runs to triangle jump knee drop! Ford pushes Conti back into the ring, takes a moment to fix her hair, and AEW goes to break.

AEW returns as Conti fights up and arm-drags Ford off the motorcycle stretch. Ford ends up in a corner but storms after Conti. Conti throws elbows, Ford CLUBS her on the back. Ford whips Conti to a corner, runs corner to corner to handspring, but Conti dodges! Conti comes back, Ford dodges and then handsprings in again, to RAM a shoulder into Conti! Ford runs side to side but Conti dodges the boot! Conti back elbows, brings Ford around and then goes up and up and CROSSBODIES! Fans fire up with Conti as she rallies with big clotheslines!

SUPERBAD MUTA LOCK! But Conti fights right out to get a CALF KILLER!! Ford endures, reaches out for Bunny, and gets the ROPEBREAK! Conti lets go at the count, runs in at the corner and BOOTS Ford again! Then Conti goes side to side for another BOOT! Then the other way, ANOTHER BOOT! Conti drags Ford out but Ford wrenches to a fireman’s carry! GUT BUSTER DROP!! Cover, TWO!! Ford is furious, as is Bunny, but fans fire up for Conti’s toughness!

Winner: Tay Conti, by pinfall

The numbers game backfired on Ford and Bunny, but Ford CLOBBERS Conti from behind! Ford and Bunny are sore losers as they stomp and hammer away on Conti, but here comes the Dark Order’s ANNA JAY! Jay is back from injury and she saves her best friend from Bunny and Ford! Tay & Jay are reunited, and this just in! The Queenslayer returns to action this Sunday in the Women’s Casino Battle Royale! Now that numbers are even, what are the odds Bunny and Ford don’t win at All Out?

 

Backstage interview with Thunder Rosa.

La Mera Mera is also in the Women’s Casino Battle Royale, what does she feel her chances are? Before she can say anything, both the Vicious Vixens and the #JadeBrand barge in. Nyla Rose and Jade Cargill, with Vickie Guerrero and Mark Sterling backing them up, dare Rosa to say she’s winning the battle royal. Rosa says they can’t be serious, trying to intimidate her. Nyla says they are serious. Well in that case, if Rosa’s going down, she’s doing down swinging. The earrings are off and the forearms start flying! But Rosa is stuck in a 2v1 with two strong enemies, so that doesn’t last long! But then Nyla and Jade stare down!

Sterling steps in to keep the peace, saying there is no sense in doing this now. “There’s way more money on Sunday, if you know what I mean.” Vickie says this is the first time he’s made any kind of sense. Vickie has Nyla head out, as does Sterling with Jade. Rosa is left writhing and angry, will everyone feel the wrath of La Mera Mera at All Out?

 

AEW profiles the Final Fight, Jericho VS MJF.

JR says, “Seeing what Chris has accomplished in AEW since the debut of our brand has been nothing short of extraordinary.” Schiavone remembers back to Jericho arriving at the announcement press conference and shocking everyone. Wight says the evolutions and trials Jericho has gone through has pushed him mentally and emotionally to his limits. MJF says he’s “mopped the floor” with Jericho, Taz notes that MJF has kept Jericho on his toes, and Mark Henry sees that MJF wants the throne for himself now. If Jericho loses, no one really understands the ramifications. Will MJF retire THE Chris Jericho? Wight admits, he’s worried. Will the Final Fight truly be the final night for Jericho in the ring?

 

8 Man Tag: The Elite VS The Lucha Brothers & Jurassic Express!

At All Out, The Young Bucks are going to defend their AEW Tag Team Championships against Rey Fenix & Penta El Zero M inside a steel cage! But they’re not worried, especially with the Impact World Tag Team Champions by their side. Will The Elite (the the Elite) be rolling into All Out with yet another big win? Or will having Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus and #CeroMiedo be what helps the Lucha Brothers score some early momentum going into their battle of steel and gold?

The teams sort out, big Doc Gallows starts against the equally big Luchasaurus, and fans are fired up already! Gallows throws a haymaker, Luchasaurus gives it back, and we have a brawl already! Gallows kicks low, whips Luchasaurus to a corner, then runs in to back elbow! Gallows throws body shots as Callis claims The Elite doesn’t need interference, despite all the times we’ve seen them use it. Gallows ROCKS Luchasaurus with an uppercut, but Luchasaurus turns things around to fire off big hands! Luchasaurus waistlocks, Gallows elbows free and kicks low again. Gallows reels Luchasaurus in, Luchasaurus resists the suplex to suplex Gallows instead!

Luchasaurus growls at The Elite, then drags Gallows up. Gallows uppercuts Luchasaurus then tags out to Nick Jackson. Nick runs in but into a flapjack! Fenix tags in, he goes up and leaps but Nick gets under. Fenix comes back, Fenix whips him to ropes but Fenix uses the Tiger Feint to rewind. Nick ducks the heel kick but Fenix whips him to ropes. Nick flips up and around, Fenix dodges but Nick dodges back. Fenix and Nick stare down Matt and Penta, then go back to each other. They each dodge, to tag in their brothers! Penta and Fenix run at Matt and Nick, both sides dodge, then everyone SUPERKICKS! Those all cancel out, so the four start shoving and talking trash!

The ref tries to keep the peace but then the Good Brothers blindside the Lucha Bros, then sucker punch Jurassic Express! The fans boo and the ref reprimands but The Elite isolates Penta. Matt stomps Penta, does a funky dance, then mocks Cero Miedo as he runs. But Jungle Boy trips Matt up! Penta hits a SLINGBLADE as AEW goes picture in picture!

Penta tags JB, JB and Penta double whip Matt, leap frog to SUPERKICK! Matt is down, JB gets a boost from Penta for a SPLASH! Cover, TWO! JB stays on Matt with CHOPS, then runs, but into a cheap shot from Nick! JB elbows Nick down, runs at Matt, but Matt sidesteps. Matt goes to hip toss JB but JB uses that to get up and RANA- NO! Nick blocks, and with Matt’s help he APRON POWERBOMBS Jungle Boy! JB flops to the floor, The Elite again sucker punches the Lucha Brothers and Luchasaurus, and Brandon Cutler cools Nick down with the spray. Nick puts JB in the ring, Matt stomps JB before he can get to his corner, and then Matt brings JB up and around.

JB throws body shots and back hands but Matt keeps him from his corner by pulling hair! The ref reprimands, so Matt throws JB down by his hair. Tag to Nick, he stomps JB around, then tags in Gallows. The Elite mugs JB, Gallows looms over him, then snapmares JB for a flurry of elbows to the shoulders. Gallows wraps on a chinlock and squeezes JB tight. JB endures, fights up, throws body shots, but Gallows throws him down by his hair now. Nick tags in again, taunts the Lucha Brothers and distracts the ref, and Gallows gets a cheap shot in on JB! Nick then chokes JB on the ropes! The ref sees that, counts, and Nick lets off at 4. Nick does his mock Macho Man strut, then bumps JB off buckles.

Tag to Matt, the Bucks dropkick Luchasaurus down together! The Lucha Bros try to hit back but the Bucks knock them down first! The Bucks strut around and mock the fans cheering. They then return to JB and mug him in the Elite corner. The Bucks double whip JB to the corner, then Nick runs in as AEW returns to single picture. JB BOOTS Nick away, Matt runs in but gets an elbow, and JB rolls off Matt’s back but into Nick’s shove. Karl Anderson finally does something by tripping JB up, dragging him out and shoving him into railing! But JB rebounds to LARIAT Anderson! The Machine Gun checks his face, JB blocks Nick’s apron Penalty Kick and uses that to get up on the apron!

JB DECKS Nick, SUPERKICKS Gallows, then shoulders into Matt. JB slingshots up and over and hot tags Fenix! Fans fire up as Fenix wrenches, knuckle locks and CHOPS Nick! Matt runs in but Fenix jumps over him, only for Matt to get a waistlock. Fenix elbows free, ducks Nick’s forearm so that Matt takes the hit, then Fenix CHOPS Nick again. Fenix SUPERKICKS Anderson, mule kicks his leg out, CHOPS Nick again, then BUZZSAWS Anderson! All while keeping the knuckle lock! Nick swings on Fenix, but Fenix ducks that to get a wristlock ripcord and ROUNDHOUSE! Fans fire up as Fenix goes up and up and then shows off before the flipping arm-drag!

Fans are thunderous as Fenix gets Nick over to the corner. Tag to Penta, feed to a pop-up in the corner, Penta SUPERKICKS Nick out of his headstand! Fenix fireman’s carries for a DEATH VALLEY DRIVER, Penta is up top for WAZZUP!? Cover, but Matt breaks it! Fenix bumps Matt off buckles but Nick blocks Penta’s chop with a knuckle lock. Nick CHOPS Penta, goes up and up a corner for “LUCHA LIBRE!” and gets both an arm-drag and a headscissors on the Lucha Brothers! Nick aims, SUPERKICK for Penta! Penta SUPERKICKS Nick in return! Nick rebounds to SUPERKICK Fenix, while Penta SUPERKICKS Matt! DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSES for Penta and Nick!!

Fans are loving this as the champions and their challengers are both down! Nick and Penta crawl for their corners, hot tags to Anderson and Luchasaurus! Luchasaurus rallies on the Good Brothers, then tosses Anderson to the corner for fast hands! GERMAN SUPLEX! Gallows gets in but Luchasaurus ducks the buzzsaw to kip up! TAIL WHIP! Gallows staggers so Luchasaurus shoves him out of the ring! Nick GAMANGIRIS Luchasaurus but slingshots into the choke grip! CHOKE SLAM outside, ONTO Gallows and Matt! JB builds speed and Luchasaurus gives him a boost so he can FLY! Direct hit onto The Elite!

Anderson staggers up into the choke grip, CHOKE SLAM! STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO!! Tag to Penta then tag to Fenix. Penta BUZZSAWS Anderson, brings him around as Fenix climbs, “CERO MIEDO!” But Matt distracts the ref so that Brandon Cutler can COLD SPRAY Fenix in the face!! Gallows YAKUZA KICKS Penta down, then he and Anderson give Fenix MAGIC KILLER!! Cover, Luchasaurus breaks it in time! Gallows POSTS Luchasaurus, The Elite regroup and Nick tags in. Nick tags Matt, the Bucks get Fenix up as fans rally. B T E- NO! Fenix dodges and knees collide! Handspring DOUBLE CUTTER!!

Fenix hurries to the apron, BOOTS Anderson and SUPERKICKS Gallows, then springboards to DOUBLE CROSSBODY! But the Bucks catch him and pop him up into a gut wrench! Nick hurries to the apron now, he springboards, MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Elite wins!!

Winners: The Elite, by pinfall

Callis is laughing his head off on commentary, and says he has some business to take care of now. The Bucks and Good Brothers celebrate, and here comes Kenny Omega and Michael Nakazawa. Nakazawa is holding up the AEW World Championship for Omega as Omega gets a mic to laugh in his own right. Omega joins the Elite in the ring and starts the assault on Jurassic Express and the Lucha Brothers! “You just can’t take a hint, can you?”

A table has been set up and Omega shouts, “Take care of the dinosaur!” The Good Brothers get Luchasaurus up for MAGIC KILLER through the table!! Omega then stands JB against the ropes and shouts, “Who do you think you are, huh?!” Omega says JB isn’t in contention anymore so why is he bothering to fight back? But then CHRISTIAN CAGE shows up and SPEARS Omega down! Christian fires off on the Bucks but the Good Brothers return, and even Nakazawa helps out! Cutler gets kendo sticks for everyone and they use those to choke the contenders. Omega claims this was the trap they laid, and Christian fell right into it.

Omega goes on about the great meeting with Tony Khan from earlier today, talking about the AEW video game, the AEW ratings, “but you really got to be careful not to misplace personal items.” Omega says Callis has the “keys to the control room,” and wants him to “LET HER RIP! BRING IT DOWN!” The cage is descending! “You thought we were done?!” The mugging of the Elite’s enemies continues as the cage encapsulates the ring! Omega has the Elite set the Lucha Brothers up for a quick photo op, then Omega SMACKS Christian with a kendo stick! The Bucks and Good Brothers do the same to the Lucha Brothers!

Alex Abrahantes returns, and he’s brought The Elite Hunter! Frankie Kazarian rushes out with other enemies of the Elite! Cutler and the Good Brothers do whatever they can to stop Kaz, Dante Martin, Jurassic Express and even Orange Cassidy from scaling the cage! Mark Stunt is way up top, but Cutler sprays him in the face! Stunt has to retreat down the corner girder to save himself from falling. The Bucks handcuff the Lucha Brothers to ropes to SUPERKICK them down! SUPERKICK after SUPERKICK from Nick to each brother, and Matt rubs the tag titles in their faces. Omega even tells Nick to calm it down so they can pick on Christian now.

The Bucks sit Christian up as Omega laughs, and together as The Elite, B T E TRIPLE TRIGGER!! Nakazawa cuffs Christian for Omega, and Omega sarcastically says he’s sorry this has to happen this way. AEW is wrapping as Omega has his photo op with a downed Captain Charisma, is this foreshadowing how All Out ends on Sunday?


My Thoughts:

WOW! Now this was a packed go-home! A lot of solid promos and great vignettes for the All Out matches, but MJF and Jericho of course had the best two. Jericho is so fired up with this, I honestly can’t be sure which way The Final Fight goes. Jericho’s had such a great career already but just as there’s so much more for him still to do, is he realizing in real-life that he actually can’t do this for that much longer? All Out is must-see just on that match because of what it means for Jericho. Britt’s promo was really good, too, on all the blatant teases of free agents that could be coming to AEW but aren’t yet, i.e. The IIconics and Adam Cole.

FTR VS PNP was a badass opening tag match, and it is very big for PNP to get the win here. I really do think Santana & Ortiz will be poised to challenge whoever the tag champions are after All Out, because whether it’s PNP VS Bucks or PNP VS Lucha Brothers, that’s top tier tag action right there. I like the guts Garcia & 2.0 are showing still trying to go after Darby and now even CM Punk, and seeing the three finishers in a row from Darby, Sting and Punk was great television. Sting’s promo could’ve been a bit crisper but he got his point across that this will be all on Darby. Darby has a good promo, and he really does make a good point about how a list of dream matches should technically increase in importance and all that.

Cassidy VS Evans was a very good match but what a bummer that for the TV audience, this ended abruptly in a picture in picture. HFO going after Cassidy so that Best Friends and Jurassic Express run them off was good set-up for a 10 Man Tag in the Buy-In this Sunday. I swear I was saying something along the lines of this being the blow off not too long ago, so great to see AEW saw that for themselves. Cage VS Hobbs was also a very good match, but of course Team Taz uses Heel tactics to screw over Cage. We definitely need some kind of FTW Championship match with a ringside band on Team Taz so Cage and Starks can truly settle this.

Malakai Black has a very good promo calling out Lee Johnson, and their match this Friday on Rampage is going to be a good one. Still hoping this leads to Malakai VS Dustin on a big time Dynamite like the Grand Slam in a few weeks. However, the Nightmare Family seems to be losing members and in ways I don’t really understand. The Gunn Club turning on Paul Wight feels like a really forced way to knock Wight down so that QT and the Factory can stand tall tonight. Does this math mean Wight wins his in-ring return against the younger star? If QT still wins, the math just looks gross. The Factory should’ve looked like chickens tonight so they could cheat Wight at All Out and have QT win.

Conti VS Ford was a great match to build up the women’s midcard while also giving some great momentum towards the Women’s Casino Battle Royal. Conti winning and Jay returning is great stuff, but given Rosa getting mugged by Nyla Rose and Jade Cargill, that just furthers my confidence in Rosa winning the match. Britt will surely find a way to win against Statlander so that Britt and Rosa can revisit their awesome feud and settle things with the title on the line. Plus, who doesn’t want to see them revisit their Unsanctioned Match in some form or another?

And then, even after how packed tonight was, there was SO MUCH awesome stuff in the 8 Man Tag main event. The Elite not only win but they stand tall after brutalizing just about everyone, but I really only see the tag titles changing hands. It’s the first tag cage match in AEW, the Lucha Brothers are fired up and have a lot they can do after as AEW Dynamite goes into “season three,” title change would be a great way to make All Out stand out. As for Omega, he does stand tall over Christian here, but Christian’s already Impact World Champion, Christian can do plenty with that over in Impact while AEW gets us back on track for Omega VS Hangman, the one true way Omega must lose the title.

My Score: 9.2/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

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

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

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

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

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

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

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

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

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

 

The House of Black speaks.

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

Mark Briscoe speaks.

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

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

 

Program loading.

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

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

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

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

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

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

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

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

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

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

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

Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her!

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

 

Skye Blue speaks.

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

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

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

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10

The ref counts, Daivari lets off and he drags Brody over. Tag to Nese, and Nese stomps Brody while Daivari anchors the legs. Rampage returns to single picture as Nese and Daivari let off. Nese soaks up heat, stalks Brody to the corner, and he grins as he says “All day, baby.” Nese CHOPS but Brody gets mad! Brody fires forearms and elbows, DECKS Nese, then storms up. Nese throat chops! Then Nese runs, but into an URENAGE! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Brody crawls, reaches out, hot tags to Malakai and Daivari!

Nese gets in but Malakai ELBOWS him down! Daivari kicks and whips but Malakai RANAS! Nese is up but the JUMP KNEE knocks him down! Daivari stands and Malakai QUEBRADAS him down! Cover, TWO!

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

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

The bell rings and Kyle says that while he loves and appreciates Roddy, Taven & Bennett, they’re being more like the Undisputed Cling-dom! Meanwhile, big Ben Bishop stalks some smack on Roddy, and then pretends he can’t see him. Roddy says okay, be that way. They tie up, Cassidy points out just how tall Ben is, and big Ben shoves Roddy down! The fans fire up, Roddy comes right back, but Ben TOSSES him away! Roddy bails out, the fans fire up for Ben, and The Kingdom coaches Roddy up. Roddy runs in, dodges Ben, and kicks at the legs! Ben drops to size so Roddy and CHOP! CHOP! And CHOP!

Roddy kicks the legs, fires boxing elbows, then ELBOWS Ben before he runs and SICK KICKS! Then he hits an OLYMPIC SLAM! The fans fire up with Roddy and the Kingdom, then the STRONG KNEE knocks Ben down! Cover, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

The Conglomeration is in agreement, that was impressive work by Roddy, because Roddy is indeed that good. But Cassidy says it is time to go stare down with them. The Conglomeration stand on stage to stare down The Kingdom, but Roddy needs to focus on tomorrow night. Will Roddy punch his golden ticket to an ROH World Championship match? Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

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

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

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

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

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

 

Thunder Rosa VS Rachael Ellering!

We heard the Virtuosa speak her mind, but La Mera Mera looks to show, not tell. Will Rosa be more than ready to go another round with Deonna? Or will the Queen of Strong Smile make some bold moves of her own?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Rachael shoves Rosa away, and the two reset. They tie up, Rosa headlocks, but Rachael lifts her!

Rachael staggers, Rosa KICKS a leg out! Rosa then runs to LARIAT Rachael down! Cover, TWO! Rosa clamps on with a chinlock, then shifts up to an armlock.

Rachael keeps moving, and she UPPERCUTS Rosa down! The fans fire up and Rachael says “SWISH!” SENTON! Cover, TWO! The fans rally up but Rachael keeps on Rosa. Rachael CHOPS Rosa, storms up and CHOPS again. Rachael whips corner to corner hard, then runs in to LARIAT again! Rachael whips Rosa back in, runs in, but Rosa dodges! The fans rally up for Rosa as she LOCO LARIATS! Then she sits Rachael down to SWINGING METEORA!

The fans fire up and Rosa aims as Rachael goes to ropes. BANG and Rosa runs in to DROPKICK! Rachael sputters, Rosa reels her in, but Rachael bucks the driver! High stack, TWO! Rachael hurries to whip Rosa, but Rosa holds ropes. Rosa BOOTS back, runs up, and wheelbarrows, victory roll into a STOMP 182! Rosa then clamps on and has the COBRA CAMEL CLUTCH! Rachael taps, Rosa wins!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by submission

La Mera Mera shows respect to Rachael by helping her up and hugging it out. But then DEONNA runs out there! And she SHOVES Rachael into Rosa! Then she DECKS Rachael for the hell of it before going after Rosa! Rachael drags Deonna off of Rosa, so Deonna BOOTS her down! The fans boo but Deonna BOOTS Rosa down! The Virtuosa shows her violent side, but will Rosa make her regret it?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

On top of Strong VS Castle in an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match, and on top of Konosuke Takeshita VS Tommy Billington, The Bang Bang Gang is back in action. Will Juice Robinson & The Gunns keep the momentum going? Plus, Nyla Rose is back, we see Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron 1v1, and in the main event, it will be Kyle O’Reilly & Orange Cassidy representing The Conglomeration against THE Kingdom, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett. Could we see some Freshly Squeezed #1 contenders to the ROH World Tag Team Championships, too? Or will Taven & Bennett secure that night off they’ve been wanting?

 

BREAKING NEWS elsewhere!

Willow Nightingale is going to be part of the big NJPW-CMLL crossover tradition, Fantastica Mania! She, Viva Van and Lluvia will compete for the now vacated CMLL Women’s World Championship! The Babe with the Power may not have gone back-to-back in the Owen Hart Cup, but will she return to AEW as a world champion all the same?

 

Six Man Tag: Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

There have been more words flying back and forth between these trios than anything, but now it is time to put up or shut up!

Shane flips Action back up to KNEE him in the face! Ogogo and Lee get in for defense, Shane DECKS Action!! Cover, STP wins!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.8/10
