CM Punk is here!

New Jersey loves the Best in the World, and he’ll be here all night on commentary! But first, he crowd dives! Fans love that even more! Punk continues on to high five and even get a photo op with the Dusty Rhodes cosplayer. Punk then joins Schiavone, Jim Ross and Excalibur at the announce desk.

 

Adam Cole VS Frankie Kazarian!

The first AEW match for the Elite’s prodigal son is here! But will Jersey be all about the boom? Or will the Elite Hunter check off the newest name on his hitlist?

The bell rings and fans are fired up already. Cole and Kaz circle, then Cole rushes in! Kaz avoids the boot, arm-drags Cole away, then headlocks for a takeover. Cole headscissors but Kaz kips out to hit another headlock takeover. Cole fights up, powers out but Kaz runs him over! Things speed up, Kaz blocks a hip toss but so does Cole, so Kaz drop toeholds to float to the headlock. Kaz grinds Cole down as fans cheer the technical exchange. Cole fights up, powers Kaz to ropes, then back suplexes Kaz up and out! Kaz checks his face, Cole goes out after him. Cole brings Kaz up to whip him into the apron! Cole soaks up the cheers and the jeers before he puts Kaz back in.

Cole takes a bow and fans cheer. Cole goes to Kaz, but Kaz swings a haymaker! Cole avoids it and thrusts a shoulder, only for Kaz to hit the guillotine leg drop! Kaz says, “This is still my house!” Kaz aims, slingshots and sunset flips, but Cole rolls through to BOOT Kaz down! Fans fire up as Cole rains down rights! Cole then drags Kaz up into a chinlock and he grinds Kaz back down. Kaz endures, fans rally up, and Kaz throws body shots. Cole clinches but Kaz CHOPS! And CHOPS! Kaz whips, Cole reverses but Kaz rolls off Cole’s back to waistlock. Cole switches, Kaz victory rolls it, TWO! Kaz keeps a leg hooked up to drag Cole into a very unique triangle hold!

Fans rally as Cole endures, kicks with his free foot over and over and finally gets free! Kaz staggers, Cole fireman’s carries for USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO! Cole is annoyed but he goes to a corner. Fans cheer as he tunes up the band! Cole thinks he’s the Heartbreak Kid but Kaz blocks the kick! Kaz waistlocks, O’Conner Rolls to CHAOS THEORY! Cover, TWO! Cole survives but Kaz fires himself up! Cole goes to a corner, Kaz runs in and DOUBLE KNEES Cole in the back! Then chicken wing, but Cole fights that off! Cole goes up the corner and pushes back to roll Kaz up, TWO! Kaz gets to the corner, runs out but into a SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!!

Cole can’t believe Kaz survives but fans are fired up again! Cole aims from the corner and climbs up now. Cole leaps but Kaz blocks Panama Sunrise to ALABAMA SLAM! Springboard leg drop! Cover, TWO!! Kaz and Cole are both down but fans are fired up all over again! Kaz and Cole throw forearms as they’re on the mat and go back and forth. They stand, Cole throws a forearm but Kaz gives it back. The forearms keep going, Kaz gets the edge, then mule kicks and knee lifts, into Cole’s BOOT! Kaz comes back to LARIAT! Kaz hurries to get Cole up but Cole hits a LAST SHOT! Cover, TWO!! Kaz survives again, that wasn’t the last shot!

Both men stir as fans declare, “This is Awesome!” Kaz gets to a corner, drags himself up, and Cole runs in but is put on the apron. Kaz and Cole each dodge a haymaker but Cole is ready for the leg drop this time! Cole dodges and Kaz lands on his ass, then Cole hurries up top. Cole leaps, PANAMA SUNRISE!! But Cole doesn’t stop there, he takes his knee pad down and… BLINDSIDE SHINING WIZARD! Cover, Cole wins!

Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall

Call that one the BOOM, because that’s what it’s all about! Kaz is denied vengeance again, and Cole gets a mic to ask, “Who’s ready for story time with Adam Cole, baybay~? Hope. Hope is a dangerous, dangerous thing. And that locker room hopes it can keep up with the Elite. Well guess what? It ain’t gonna happen! I’ve only been here for a short time and there are three times who have really gotten under my skin: Christian Cage; Luchasaurus; and Jungle Boy!” Fans cheer for all three of those, but if those three are so tough, then how about next week’s AEW Rampage Grand Slam, those three VS Cole & The Bucks in a Six Man Tag?

“The Super Kliq is back, baybay. And there’s not a damn thing anybody can do to stop us!” Literal mic drop as the gauntlet has been cast! Will Captain Charisma lead Jurassic Express into battle against Cole and the former tag team champions?

 

AEW hears from The Lucha Brothers and the HFO’s mercenaries.

Rey Fenix calls out The Butcher & The Blade. They used to be a family, but it seems they’ve forgotten that. The brothers have the gold, and Butcher himself says “What you’re looking at are two of the baddest, meanest mother-” Blade has Butcher stop there. Blade himself says this is a new reality, a darker reality. Alexa Abrahantes translates for Penta as he says that this Friday, 9/17, AEW Rampage, “if you want the gold, you’ll have to sweat, you’ll have to cry and you’re gonna bleed!” What happens when these two ruthless duos do battle for the belts?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Fuego Del Sol & Sammy Guevara.

Schiavone brings up that Fuego may have lost to Miro but he still got the contract, and now he’s got a brand new car! Fuego says this all new Hyundai is incredible. As much as he loves it, he’d trade it all away to be TNT Champion. Sammy asks if that’s a challenge. Y’know what? It is! Car VS Title for the TNT Championship on Rampage! The challenge has been made, will Miro accept it? And will Miro soon be the owner of a new Hyundai?

 

MJF heads to the ring!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman, Wardlow following behind, tells the production team to cut his music. Jersey boos really hard but MJF just smirks. “Last week, you guys were oh so sympathetic for Cryin’ Brian. But you should be sympathetic for me! Because right now, I am standing in the armpit of America known as New Jersey!” Fans call MJF an A-Hole but MJF asks Jersey what Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Ham and Jersey’s #MID hockey team have in common? “They all suck as hard as your Jersey Shore skanks!!” But MJF isn’t here to talk to the fans. He wants to have a conversation with the viewers at home.

See, MJF was “smartened up” about his comments last week possibly offending some of us fans. Fans tell MJF to STFU and he tells them nope. As for our feelings, he doesn’t care! But as we all know, MJF is Salt of the Earth and religious, so right now he wants to take a moment to have a conversation with the late, great Loose Cannon, Brian Pillman Sr. MJF looks to Heaven and asks Mr. Pillman- Oh wait! He looks down and shouts, “Hey, Pillman! We need to talk!” Fans boo harder as MJF just laughs at his tasteless joke. MJF continues to say that he’s a huge fan of the legend. But unfortunately, his widow #Methanie created the “worst excuse for a second generation wrestler in Brian Pillman Jr.”

So the reason MJF is “talking” to Pillman Sr. is to give him fair warning. “Tell your son if he shows up in that awful town known as Queens, that I am going to massacre him!” The people can chant the stupid last name, “Pillman! Pillman!” The fans actually do chant that. Chant as long as you want, because in the end it’ll be oh too obvious that MJF is better than- Here comes BPJ! MJF sends Wardlow to intercept but BPJ isn’t coming from the ramp side! He’s from the crowd side and with a chair! MJF panics but Wardlow returns to snatch the chair. BPJ SLAPS Wardlow, then dares him to bring it! Wardlow seethes and rushes in but BPJ dumps him to the apron!

BPJ gets the chair back and he swings! Wardlow gets away, he and MJF regroup and stand down! BPJ is ready to swing for the fences at Dynamite Grand Slam, but will MJF even step up to the plate?

 

AEW shares Jim Ross’ interview with BPJ from earlier today.

Good ol’ JR can remember so clearly, his phone rings and it was Pillman Sr. He told JR about his son being born, and how excited he was to say he was going to be “Little Brian.” Then in Cincinnati, JR just had this sick feeling of being embarrassed on behalf of the Pillman family. MJF humiliated BPJ but now BPJ can redeem himself. JR wants to tell BPJ that for the family’s sake, MJF needs to get his ass kicked. Is that what BPJ is planning on doing? Cuz that’s what it’ll take. BPJ says that JR knows his family’s history better than anybody. And he knows how important it is to BPJ to fulfill the legacy. Last week in Cincy, BPJ feels he let his father down.

But MJF! While you were waking up every day to Egyptian cotton and being fed from a silver spoon, BPJ was fighting for his life. The people know his story, they know where BPJ comes from, he and MJF are not the same. MJF will find out that he’s never been in a ring with someone like BPJ. BPJ might be clean and well put together right now, and he got through college and graduated, but where he’s from, the upbringing was FERAL. MJF doesn’t know what BPJ has lost or what he’s been through. But on 9/22 at Arthur Ashe Stadium, MJF isn’t stepping into the ring with any man. He’s stepping in the ring with a PILLMAN.

 

Backstage interview with Christian Cage & Jurassic Express.

Jungle Boy cuts Marvez off to say there’s been “a lot of fuss about Adam Cole and The Elite.” JB doesn’t get it, though. Because quite frankly, JB has better friends, better hair, and- Christian apologizes for cutting JB off here, but he’s thinking. Cole does have pretty good friends, actually. Yeah, the #SuperElite using their EVP status to throw Cole a lifeline and drag him out of “developmental.” But here’s the thing: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! And since Cole is already used to losing Wednesday night wars, maybe he should add Fridays to that, too. JB wraps up with, “See you at the Grand Slam, baybay,” and Luchasaurus growls. Will this trio be able to strike out the Super Kliq?

 

FTR w/ Tully Blanchard VS Dante Martin & Matt Sydal!

Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood may have lost to Santana & Ortiz, but they can still make a run at the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Will they run through Angel Dorado and the high flying veteran? Or will the young stud and the old cat be able to jump them in line?

The teams sort out and Dax starts with Sydal. The bell rings, FTR gives a quick hug but Sydal O’Conner Rolls! TWO, Sydal drags Dax to a cradle, TWO! Arm-drag after arm-drag, but Dax gets Sydal up! Sydal headscissors Dax to the corner then tags in Dante. Sydal whips Dax, they both leap frog and double dropkicks! Cover, ONE! Dante drags Dax up to wrench the arm and he keeps Dax from Cash. Dax pulls hair and puts Dante in a corner then digs his fingers into Dante’s face. Dax lets off to CHOP and stomp and CHOP again! Dax whips Dante corner to corner but Dante goes up and out and hits back with haymakers! Elbow for Cash, but Cash kicks Dante’s springboard out of whack!

Dax grins as Cash gets away with that one. Fans rally up for Dante as he drags himself up, but Dax tags Cash. Cash goes after Cash with uppercuts! Cash CHOPS Dante against the apron, but Dante hits back with body shots. Cash CHOPS again, then POSTS him! Dante sits up in a daze but Cash puts him in. Cash dropkicks Dante down before he can get to Sydal. Cash brings Dante up to HEADBUTT, then he throws another HEADBUTT to put him in a corner. Cash snapmares and wraps on a thrashing chinlock. Dax talks trash as Dante endures the grind. Fans rally and Dante fights up. Dante reaches, throws body shots then a JAWBREAKER!

Cash tags Dax, FTR keeps Dante from Sydal with a double whip. Dante holds ropes, BOOTS Cash then goes to boot Dax. Dax blocks it, Dante elbows him then goes up and over and around to hot tag Sydal! Sydal rallies on FTR with big kicks! JUMP KNEE sends Cash out of the ring! Fans fire up as Sydal aims, PLANCHA feint! Dante runs over and gets a boost for a DOUBLE CROSSBODY! Sydal and Dante take FTR out together and fans are fired up! FTR regroups, Sydal and Dante goes back to the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.

Tully coaches FTR up and Sydal drags Dax in. Sydal gets the arm to wrench but Dax pulls hair. Th eref reprimands but Dax whips. Sydal goes up and over but Dax CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Dax tags Cash then goes after SYlda in the corner. FTR DOUBLE GUILLOTINES Sydal into the buckle! Cash applauds himself and blows a kiss to the crowd. Sydal drags himself up, Cash chokes him on the ropes! Cash lets off as the ref counts, but Tully gets his shots in! Tully gets away with it and Cash goes back to Sydal for a cobra twist. Sydal endures but then Tully distracts the ref. The ref doesn’t see FTR fake a tag and have Dax come in! But Sydal counters with a cradle!

The ref sees that and counts, TWO!! Dax CLOBBERS Sydal for foiling the plan! Tag to Cash, Cash stomps Sydal down. Tag to Dax, he drags Sydal up to whip and catch Sydal to the cobra twist! Sydal endures again but Dax pushes his head down. FTR forms a chain for leverage! Sydal endures, FTR lets off, but then Dax reaches out a hand. Cash takes it and the chain is back on! FTR gets away with it again as the ref looks, but Sydal powers his way around to arm-drag free! Hot tag to Cash and he intercepts Sydal! FTR double whip, Sydal dodges and Dante tags in! FTR catches Sydal’s crossbody but Dante springboard missile dropkicks them all down!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

Cash & Dax reestablish themselves and are ready to climb those rankings! Will FTR #FindTheirRedemption on the road into the Fall?

 

CM Punk talks the Suzuki Incident.

“This is a very delicate subject. This is something we take very, very seriously in All Elite Wrestling. Minoru Suzuki is a pioneer in not only professional wrestling but in mixed martial arts. He is a Carl Gotch trained professional wrestler, he’s the King of Pancrase, and he felt slighted that his entrance music was cut off.” That’s the gist of it. Suzuki feels insulted and he wants his full entrance song.

Lance Archer speaks on the “incident.”

“Moxley! You wanted Suzuki in AEW, to come to the United States of America and face you. But you wanted to do it in Cincinnati, Ohio of all places. If that’s not the definition of unfair, I dunno what the hell is.” Moxley had the refs on his side, the people on his side, and everything in his favor. Guess what? That changes in New York. Archer and Suzuki have been a team for a long time, and now Moxley and Kingston are going to learn, “Once Suzuki-Gun, always Suzuki-Gun.” And at the Grand Slam, Suzuki and the Murderhawk Monster will show us what Strong Style is all about in a way you never wanted to know. Suzuki-Gun ICHIBAN!

 

The lights go out!

And when they turn back on, we see it’s MALAKAI BLACK! The dark father goes to the ring, making the Jersey Devil proud with that mask. Malakai gets a mic and paces around as the fans cheer. Malakai has them hush and calls for the members of the House of Black to please rise. “For we have an enemy in our midst.” He looks right at… Rosario Dawson?! One of Cody Rhodes’ cohosts from The Go Big Show is in the front row, and Malakai is upset she is wearing the Nightmare Family tracksuit. Malakai goes out but she hops the railing to meet him! Malakai warns her not to do something foolish, but then from the crowd, here comes CODY RHODES himself!

Fans are going nuts as Cody is storming down the steps, but Rosario jumps on Malakai’s back! Fans are losing it as Cody gets in to DECK Malakai! Cody fires hands, Malakai forearms back! Malakai BOOTS but Cody comes right back to TOSS Malakai over the railing! They brawl right among the crowd and security does its best to keep up! Fans lose their minds as the brawl continues up the steps! Cody bumps Malakai off chairs and Rosario flexes for Team Cody. Malakai throws hands, the fight keeps going up, and Cody SMACKS Malakai with someone’s drink! Cody fires up and he drags Malakai along the way. Malakai hits back, they’re still going up and up!

Cody smacks Malakai off the railing! Malakai uses the railing to choke Cody! Cody gets free and SMACKS Malakai with another drink! Malakai hits back again, they go back up the stairs and a THIRD drink is used! Cody fires off hands, Malakai hits the bad leg! Malakai kicks the leg, Cody hobbles up the steps and Malakai borrows an idea from Cody! DRINK SMASH! AEW goes to break as this chaos continues!

 

AEW hears from The Bunny.

Allie says, “The Queenslayer, Anna Jay is back. And we’re all very excited.” But she wouldn’t have attacked her if she would just stay out of the way. But Anna can’t help herself, can she? Bunny says Anna should be careful. She wouldn’t want to get dragged down the rabbit hole, would she?

 

Backstage interview with Anna Jay and the Dark Order.

Alex Marvez notes this will be the Rampage debut of Anna as she takes on The Bunny. This is a big deal, and then Evil Uno speaks up. He promises to lead the way and- Alex Reynolds interrupts now, sarcastically saying Uno’s a great leader with him cutting off Anna when this was her interview. Looks like nothing’s change. Oh, good to see you back, Alex, after you left their group a few weeks ago! Uno has no idea what this is. No, Reynolds left Uno’s dumb ass and is back for Anna’s sake. Alan Angels speaks up now, saying that while Reynolds was gone, UNO has been going on a power trip! Anna shouts over them all! If they can’t get this together, she doesn’t want anyone ringside.

John Silver asks if he’s still allowed. No, no one gets to be ringside but Tay Conti. The ladies leave the boys to bicker, will the Dark Order get things… in order?

 

Dan Lambert, America Top Team and the Men of the Year are in the ring.

Lambert says, “When I was younger, if you wanted to know which wrestlers were popular, you’d go out to the merchandise stand and see what was selling. But do that at an AEW show and you learn more about its fanbase than you do about tis wrestlers, because every single t-shirt is sold out. In men’s small and women’s large!” If the truth hurts, then cover up your fragile little ears and then they’ll return to the “regularly scheduled” programming where you can watch some “5’8”, 149 pound dork throw 11 Superkicks, climb up three levels to the highest balcony of the building, do a backflip all the way to the floor, crashing through six tables, landing on his lifeless opponent, who will kick out at the count of two, and you morons will go crazy.”

Fans tell Lambert to STFU but here comes CHRIS JERICHO! Fans sing Judas as Le Champion AND Jake Hager walk out. Lambert tells production to turn off the music! The fans don’t really know the song, they’re googling the lyrics on their phones right now! “TURN THAT S*IT OFF!” But the fans sing Judas because they DO know it! Jericho just shrugs as he enjoys it. Jericho then says that sounds like there’s 15 THOUSAND people here who LOVE that song! And they could sing along to Lambert’s song, but no one knows the words to “I’m a Fat Faced Dipsh*t, Yeah Yeah Yeah.” Wait, here it is! Jericho sings it for us!

Lambert says that’s really funny. He admits to see Jericho out here defending this company, but it makes sense. Tony Conman isn’t the master manipulator, it’s JERICHO. Jericho will do and say whatever to get the fans to spend their allowances that their parents give them on Jericho’s stupid book o’ the month club and his Fozzy records! Wait, you guys get an allowance? And what is Lambert’s problem? He stands there, screaming like a grumpy old man at the AEW clouds, surrounded by American Top Team. Seeing all these meatheads here, Jericho has one question: Who’s on top? Fans chant, “WHO’S ON TOP?”

Jericho says Lambert’s got nothing! All the power’s in his fist cuz he relies on scare tactics, but he can’t scare Big Jake! Jake is undefeated in MMA! And Jericho’s been getting into skirmishes with MMA tough guys his whole career! The Beast a few years ago, and even before that he had a shoot fight with the Raging Bill. They didn’t kill Jericho, Lambert’s team can’t, either. But like our friend and honorary Inner Circle member, Mike Tyson, once said, “Everybody’s got a plan until they get punched in the face.” So maybe Hager and Jericho go to the ring and knock those chipmunk buck teeth of Lambert’s right down his friggin’ throat?!

Ethan Page, Scorpio Sky and all of Lambert’s people dare Jericho and Hager to do this. Lambert says he has to give them credit, the quicker they get to it is the quicker they get through it. But if this is to go down, and if the fans really want to see the American Top Team fueled Men of the Year take down the Inner Circle Jerks, it’ll have to be in a REAL city, not a s*ithole like Jersey! It’ll be the biggest city of them all, in the Big Apple! In that case, if Ethan & Scorpio are too much of pussies to face them here, it’ll happen next week! And there’ll be no escape from New York for them! The Grand Slam just got that much bigger! Will Hager & Jericho hit the Men of the Year out of the park?

 

The Gunn Club speaks.

Papa Billy says, “So we’re here to talk about disrespect. And no one has been more disrespected in AEW than the Gunn Club. Why did we do what we did to Paul Wight?” It was to get their point across. Wins and losses matter? Well let’s see… Billy & Colten as a team? Undefeated! Billy & Austin as a team? Undefeated! Austin & Colten as a team? UNDEFEATED! Trios? UN-DE-FEAT-ED! Now respect will be earned one way or another. And if anyone has a problem with that, just say when. The Gunn Club is locked and loaded, who will they shoot down on their way to respect and titles?

 

Jade Cargill w/ Mark Sterling VS Leyla Hirsch!

The storm has come to Jersey, but this is the city #LEGIT calls home! Will Jade be in for the toughest match of her young career? Will she be in for her first LOSS, at that?

The bell rings, Leyla gets face to, well, chest with Jade, but she goes right for a leg! Jade CLUBS Leyla then fireman’s carries, but Leyla slips off to get the takedown! Leyla throws down hands but Jade kicks her away. Jade bails out to regroup with Sterling but Leyla DIVES! Sterling takes the tope and Jade stomps Leyla down! Jade whips Leyla into the ring, gets in but Leyla gets around to waistlock. Jade backs Leyla into buckles, throws elbows then forearms. Jade whips corner to corner, Leyla reverses and runs in to forearm smash! Leyla sweeps the legs, runs corner to corner and METEORAS! Then SWINGING DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! But Leyla has the ARMBAR!!

Jade clasps hands, fights up and dead lifts Leyla to POWERBOMB her! Jade stands up, scowls as she paces around, and AEW goes picture in picture as she stomps away on Leyla.

Jade drags Leyla up, whips her to ropes and Leyla tumbles out of the ring! Jade goes out after Leyla to stomp her back down. Jade whips Leyla hard into railing! Leyla falls over in a heap but Jade drags her back up for a snap suplex! Jade kips up and fires up, as does Sterling. Jade stomps Leyla more, the ref has her let off to check on Leyla and Jade goes to the ring. Jade’s willing to let the ring count settle this as Leyla stirs. The count is 5 of 10 before Leyla stands back up. Leyla gets in at 7, Jade stomps her to the ropes then kicks her around to a corner. Jade CLUBS Leyla against the ropes, brings her up but Leyla ROCKS Jade with a forearm!

Leyla throws more forearms but Jade CLUBS her back down. Jade drags Leyla back up but Leyla fires forearms back. Leyla swings but into a pump handle POWERSLAM! Jade drags Leyla back up, CLUBS her back down, but Leyla throws body shots. Jade CLUBS, stomps and drags Leyla around to another fireman’s carry. Leyla squirrels around to a SLEEPER HOLD! Leyla holds on tight as Jade tries to fight free! Jade throws Leyla on the second try, Leyla goes to a corner. Jade runs but Leyla dodges the boot! Leyla waistlocks, Jade throws elbows but can’t get free! Jade keeps throwing elbows and she’s free now, but Leyla comes back to whip and GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!!

Jade survives and gets to the apron but Leyla runs and DIVES! Direct hit and Jade hits railing! Leyla puts Jade in, fans fire up and Leyla runs to KNEE Jade down! Cover, TWO!! Jade survives again and Sterling is panicking! Leyla puts Jade in a drop zone and goes up top, for a LEGIT MOONSAULT FLOP! Jade evades and comes back with the BOOT!! Jade isn’t done, she drags Leyla up for the chicken wings and JADED!! Cover, Jade wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall

That was Jade’s toughest match yet, but she comes out looking legit in her own right! Will this undefeated streak continue until the #JadeBrand is fighting for gold?

 

Andrade El Idolo speaks.

“If you lie to me, it’s because you don’t respect me. I’m always one step ahead. This is why I have my assistant, Jose.” Andrade swears he never gave the order to have them interrupt his match. So why the hell did Jose get on the apron?! He wants Jose to tell him why, and Jose says it was Chavo’s order. Chavo isn’t the boss! ANDRADE is the boss! He is the KINGPIN of AEW. He can beat PAC, or anyone he wants, when he wants. Will El Idolo prove he IS the face of Latino wrestlers when he wins one on his own?

 

Taz storms over to commentary.

He’s claiming CM Punk is taking his job now! But the rest of commentary defends Punk is just doing what he was asked. Punk stands up and Taz backs off. Taz’s son, Hook, stares Punk down but Punk asks Taz if he’s really letting his son get this close to things. Punk stares Hook down in return, but HOBBS attacks from behind! Powerhouse Hobbs punks out Punk and Taz says it’s clobbering time! Punk hits back on Hobbs but Hook gets a DRAGON SLEEPER! Team Taz mugs Punk, then they tell commentary to clear out. Schiavone, JR and Excalibur don’t have much choice as Hook starts pushing computer screens off the desk.

Hobbs drags Punk up and gives him an URENAGE onto the table! The table doesn’t break and Punk bounces off it! Team Taz leaves as security rushes in and fans boo. Will Punk be in any shape to get even with Taz and his actual punks?

 

AEW hears from Shawn Spears.

The Chairman sits with the chair he painted up for Darby Allin while calling him out. “I’m generic? I’m the piece of s*it? Correct, on all fronts. That’s why I was the guy to hand you your first loss here in AEW. That’s why history’s gonna repeat itself on Dynamite.” Allin can’t call down the rain without getting some mud! Spears didn’t invent rainy days, but for the past 20 years, he’s had the best damn umbrella! The Chairman cometh, but will he be leaving here clean and dry?

Darby Allin w/ Sting VS Shawn Spears w/ Tully Blanchard!

The Relentless One and the Icon may have gotten tricked by the very tactical Tully, but this is about proving Tully’s words are as wrong as the legend’s ever been. Will Spears be the one stinging from this rematch?

The bell rings and fans are fired up for Darby as he stares down Spears. But then Tully creeps closer, and Spears KNEES Darby down in the corner! Spears stomps a mudhole, then hangs Darby out to dry on the ropes! Darby falls to the floor, Spears goes out to high-five Tully, but now Sting creeps closer. The ref has Sting and Tully stay back, Spears drags Darby along with a headlock to get right in Sting’s face. Spears whips Darby into the steel steps! Spears then positions the steps by the ramp and brings Darby back over. Darby throws body shots but Spears CLUBS him and smacks him off the steps! Spears puts Darby against the steps to KNEE him into them!

The ref has Spears stop but Spears eggs Sting on with a middle finger! Spears then drops a knee pad and runs at Darby, but Darby dodges! Spears only hits steel! Spears hobbles and Tully is concerned as he checks on his protégé. Darby gets in the ring, fans rally up behind him as he builds speed, but Tully is Spears’ shield. Darby snarls at the legend, but Sting comes around the way. Tully can’t win that fight so he backs off. Darby drags Spears up but Spears sweeps the legs! Darby flips, falls and hits hard off the apron! Spears gets Darby up and into the ring, hobbles around to get a bottle of water. Spears wets a towel and goes to the ring to wipe off Darby’s face paint!

Fans boo as Spears smears towel in Darby’s face then elbows him back down! AEW goes picture in picture as Spears teases throwing the towel into the crowd, only to drop it outside the ring. Spears puts his kneepad back up as he stalks Darby to a corner. Spears drags Darby up to CLUB him on the back, then CLUBS him again. Spears brings Darby around to scoop and BACKBREAKER! Darby writhes, Spears makes sure his bad knee is okay, and then Spears walks it off as he stalks Darby. Darby kicks the bad leg but Spears brings him up for a back suplex. Darby lands on his feet to CHOP BLOCK! Darby rains down furious fists but Spears pushes him away.

Darby gets up at the ropes and goes to a corner. Darby comes back but into a BIG back suplex! Spears rains down fists on Darby now as AEW goes to break.

AEW returns and Spears has Darby in a SHARPSHOOTER! Spears is definitely sending a message to Sting but Darby endures! Darby drags himself over and gets the ROPEBREAK! Spears holds on until 4, then argues with the ref about things. Darby gets to a corner, Spears runs in but Darby BOOTS them away! Darby hobbles, Spears chases him but gets more boots! Darby dodges, comes back and dropkicks Spears’ bad leg! CODE RED!! Cover, TWO!! Spears survives but Sting coaches Darby up. Darby gets to the corner, climbs up top, but Spears stops him with a CHOP!

Spears drags Darby to the apron and aims at the steps! Fireman’s carry but Darby fights free! THROWBACK STUNNER HOTSHOT COMBO! Spears flops to the steps, Darby runs and DIVES!! Direct hit off the steps! Darby puts Spears in, climbs up top, COFFIN DROP to Spears’ back! Cover, Darby wins!

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Darby gets even with the Chair Man! But now FTR jumps in the ring! Sting and Darby throw hands with Cash & Dax! Sting stomps Cash, Dax mugs Darby! Tully gets the chair and gets in the ring to SMACK Sting! It didn’t do a thing! Sting kicks the chair away then pushes Tully to a corner! FTR goes after Sting to save their mentor! They stomp Sting down, rain down fists, but Darby crawls over. Darby attacks but Cash GERMAN SUPLEXES him down! FTR mugs Darby now, then they stand Sting up. Tully wants in on this as FTR hits the MIND BREAKER!! Tully has a towel of his own, and just as Spears wiped away Darby’s paint, Tully is wiping away Sting’s paint!

Fans boo as Tully leaves Darby and Steve down on the mat but the fans cuss them out. The Pinnacle doesn’t care, they’ll do this until they’re truly on top of AEW!

 

AEW hears from Bryan Danielson.

“The way The Elite acts and dresses, sound to me like people who are insecure.” Bryan isn’t exactly going after all of them, just one member. Bryan’s heard how great Omega is, and seen how great Omega is. Bryan is mostly just excited to get in the ring and wrestler Kenny Omega. But the reality is, if Omega doesn’t want to step up, then someone else will be Bryan’s first opponent. What Bryan loves about AEW is that everyone is hungry here. Everyone wants to go in and prove themselves. Bryan is here, he’s game, who’s ready to go?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring!

He’s excited to be here in New Jersey, and he loves wrestling because of BRYAN DANIELSON! The American Dragon heads to the ring, Jersey chants “YES! YES! YES!” for him as he joins Schiavone in the ring. Schiavone notes what Bryan’s said about Kenny Omega and The Elite, and we’d all love to see Bryan get in the ring with Omega. But before Bryan can speak, Don Callis interrupts, with Omega following behind. Callis says we’ve already heard enough from Bryan, because he’s been listening to it all week. It’s sickening, really. “The Hippie Millionaire,” the hero of the fans. “What a sanctimonious son of a bitch you are.”

It must’ve been so~ hard~ to make the decision to sign such a big contract and come to the number one wrestling company in the world, built on the back of Kenny Omega! “But wait, there’s more! The piece de resistance was, you made this final decision to come here, thinking of what was best for the entire wrestling business and everyone in it! And people call me a carny piece of s*it.” Fans do chant that at him, though. But Callis will take that back, because Omega corrected him. This is really how Bryan thinks. So in that case, Callis was wrong. Bryan isn’t a carny POS, he’s just a MARK like the fans! BTW, who does Bryan think he is, dictating who gets what?! Callis & Omega run AEW!

SHUT UP, DON! Bryan is here to talk to Omega. “Some day, this will be about the title. But right now, it’s just about who’s better. Let’s give the people what they want. Kenny Omega VS Bryan Danielson, what do you say?!?” Callis says NO! Fans say “YES! YES! YES!” Callis again says no, but Bryan tells him, “SHUT UP, YOU PIECE O’ S*IT!” Bryan is here to talk to Kenny Omega. But maybe he shouldn’t have. Bryan came to AEW to fight the Best Bout Machine, the GOD OF PRO-WRESTLING~! But since he’s been here, Bryan’s only ever seen a guy who hangs out with goofy stooges, and lets the POS talk for him. Fans still chant that.

Bryan heard the rumors that maybe Omega’s lost his confidence or lost a step. Bryan doesn’t think that’s true. He just thinks Omega’s lost his BALLS. So what does Omega say? Yes or no? Fans chant, “YES! YES! YES!” Callis says no, but Omega is given the mic to answer for himself. “So you say you want the Best Bout Machine? You say you want the God of Pro-Wrestling? My answer… is YES.” Callis isn’t happy about that! But it seems Omega agrees, this is about the people, and their pride as pro-wrestlers! Will Omega show everyone that he is still the best?

 

Miro speaks.

“Fuego. Every man I have redeemed has moved on to a better career. And after I had forgiven them, they’d all been smart enough not to stick around. So why are you calling me out?! They say, ‘Don’t put your hand on the stove that already burned you,’ but you are putting your throat on a blade that already spared you.” And now Fuego is challenging God’s Favorite Champion with a car on the line? Miro will bash Fuego’s brain, then bash the car, and the Fuego family will be grateful! Will the Redeemer keep his word and keep the TNT Championship? Or will Fuego be the one baptizing Miro with fire to forge his own golden legacy?

 

Matt Hardy speaks.

“Orange Cassidy, you broke my nose! Nobody breaks Big Money Matt Hardy’s nose!” Cassidy owes a debt and Hardy always collects! Freshly Squeezed has made a mockery of Hardy’s business, the pro-wrestling business, for far too long! Hardy is sick and tired of the antics, so he will take away everything that is “cool” about Cassidy, and that starts with his hair. Hardy vows to shave Cassidy’s head and make Orange Cassidy into an egghead! When and where will this Hair VS Hair match go down?

 

Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston VS 2point0 w/ Daniel Garcia!

The Maniac and Mad King know Suzuki-Gun’s coming for their necks, but they’ve still got some beef to squash with Matt Lee & Jeff Parker. Will 2point0 find out they don’t rule after all?

But again, 2point0 and Daniel Garcia jump Moxley and Kingston from behind! But Moxley and Kingston are better prepared for this one and they hit back! Kingston gets mugged 2v1 while Moxley has Parker, but Kingston throws Lee into railing and fires off on Garcia! Moxley sits Parker down and BITES his forehead! The ref tries to get this in the ring as Lee attacks Kingston. Moxley puts Parker in the ring and we have a match! Parker fires hands back on Moxley, runs, but Moxley tanks the shoulder. Kingston DDT’s Lee, Moxley ROCKS Parker to then X PLEX! Parker flounders, Moxley has him in a corner and CHOPS him!

Moxley CHOPS Parker again, and then fakes Parker out to SLAP him on the back! Moxley scoops but Parker slips out to rake eyes! Tag to Lee and he runs in, but into a drop step and SNAP SAIDO! Moxley drags Lee up with a neck wrench then fish hooks AND BITES Lee’s face! Moxley lets off as the ref reprimands, and he whips Lee to ropes. Lee holds ropes and bails out but Moxley pursues. Lee gets to the ramp but Garcia rushes Moxley! Moxley throws Garcia into steel steps, only for Parker to dropkick Moxley down! Lee returns now that he has back-up and 2point0 mugs Moxley! They set Moxley up and hit a DOUBLE APRON FLAPJACK as AEW goes picture in picture!

Moxley is down, Lee gets in the ring only to refresh the count, then he takes his time bringing Moxley back up. Lee puts Moxley in the ring, Moxley flounders around and Lee stomps him down. Lee stomps Moxley at ropes, lets off as the ref counts, but Garcia talks trash. Tag to Parker as Moxley crawls to the apron and Parker drops ax handles! Garcia mockingly applauds as Parker paces in the ring. Parker drags Moxley to hit a spinning toehold! Moxley endures as Parker twists the foot, but Lee tags in to drop ax handles. Cover, TWO! Kingston is up and pissed but the ref keeps him in his corner while Lee has a chinlock on Moxley.

Lee puts Moxley in a corner and throws hands, then pushes Moxley to the corner. Tag to Parker, 2point0 mugs Moxley, then Parker snapmares. Parker wraps on a chinlock nice and tight and he grinds Moxley down. Moxley endures and Jersey rallies up. But Parker claws Moxley’s face then drops elbows! Parker wraps the chinlock back on as the ref reprimands, but Moxley starts fighting up to his feet. Moxley powers up, throws body shots and gets free to run, into a calf kick! Cover, TWO! Parker drags Moxley over, tags Lee, and 2point0 mugs Moxley again. Lee throws in elbows right to the top of Moxley’s head, then slaps him around.

Lee whips Moxley to a corner, tags Parker and then Parker runs in to forearm smash! Parker CHOPS Moxley but Moxley CHOPS back! Parker rakes Moxley’s eyes, tags Lee, and AEW returns to single picture. 2point0 botches their whip combo and Moxley BOOTS Lee! Moxley ROCKS Parker, then he staggers around. Parker gets up, Moxley fires off forearms! Moxley runs but Parker forearms him in the corner! Feed to Lee’s drop toehold, BOOYAH ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO! Lee tags Parker, throws more elbows onto Moxley, then Parker sucker punches Kingston! Moxley back drops Parker! Lee tags in and runs, but Moxley LARIATS Lee right down!

Fans fire up, hot tag to Kingston! Kingston rallies with BIG haymakers, then he whips Lee into Parker at the corner! Kingston runs in to SPLASH SANDWICH! Kingston unleashes the MACHINE GUN CHOPS! EXPLODER for Lee but Garcia gets up on the apron. Kingston DECKS Garcia, but Parker rolls Kingston up! TWO, and Kingston URAKENS Parker right down! Lee shoves Kingston, Kingston knees low and hits a DDT! Tag back to Moxley and fans fire up again! Maniac and Mad King fire themselves up, they get Parker up, THE VIOLENT CROWN!! Cover, Moxley & Kingston win!

Winners: Jon Moxley & Eddie Kingston, by pinfall

Moxley tells Suzuki right in the camera, if they want some, they can come get it! But wait! Here comes Suzuki after all!! The song begins, will we get to hear it all? He walks out slowly onto the stage and Moxley stares him down. Suzuki still smiles despite the black eye and stiches are clear on his face. Suzuki goes down the ramp to the ring, Moxley and Kingston hold their ground, and fans get ready for the moment…! KA ZE NI NA REEEE~! And then Archer appears from the crowd side! Archer drags Kingston out of the ring and throws him into railing! Suzuki and Moxley brawl, they spill out of the ring and Moxley throws Suzuki into railing!

Archer drags Kingston into the crowd and fans are going nuts as Kingston fires off headbutts! Suzuki POSTS Moxley, Kingston stalks Archer now. Archer kicks low and bumps Kingston off railing while Suzuki and Moxley fight towards the timekeeper’s area! Suzuki blocks, Moxley blocks, Moxley bumps Suzuki off the table. They climb onto the table, they brawl with more haymakers, but Suzuki manages to power Moxley into the Gotch hold! Moxley powers out and SMACKS Suzuki with a mic! Moxley drags Suzuki around the way and has him take a seat to rain down fists! Moxley BITES Suzuki to try and reopen those stitches!

Kingston and Archer make their way back to ringside, right as Moxley and Suzuki bust through railing to fight in the crowd! Jersey is thunderous as the chaos continues all the way to Dynamite signing off! If this is how the fight starts, how will it end in New York?


My Thoughts:

Another great episode for Dynamite and this worked as a great go-home to what is apparently AEW Grand Slam week now. Even this week’s Rampage is awesome with all the set-up from tonight. Punk gets jumped by Team Taz and is going to fight Hobbs for his first TV match, and that’s going to be great stuff. Fuego is pretty gutsy for putting up his new car for the title, but I feel like Miro is just going to win again and then use Fuego’s body to beat up the car. And what great continuity for Lucha Brothers to fight Butcher & Blade and have the titles on the line. Pretty sure Lucha Brothers retain and this gets their first defense out of the way before having an extended feud with other teams.

Cole VS Kaz was a great opener, Cole had a great promo to call out Christian & Jurassic Express, and that Six Man Tag is going to be a great part of Rampage Grand Slam. The promo response from Christian and Jungle Boy was pretty good, but boy Christian took some shots at WWE and NXT. Pretty sure Super Kliq is the one winning that match. MJF had another great Heel promo, and BPJ had another great moment in running him and Wardlow off. He also had a very good interview promo with JR, though I feel like he could’ve just said that live for the crowd right there. But I can’t be too harsh on AEW, they made sure to arrange matching content, like Spears’ promo before his match with Darby.

Pinnacle overall broke even tonight. Spears VS Allin was a great match but Pinnacle got to stand tall with FTR coming back to attack and set up a tag match for next week. FTR in their own match of course won against Sydal and Dante teaming up while their usual tag partners are out of action. Meanwhile, I am actually really happy to see that after shifting Archer away from Lambert, Jericho and Hager are going after him now. Lambert continues to make me groan with his use of being toxic old fan in this reverse psychology role, but Jericho & Hager taking on Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky is going to be a lot of fun.

Gunn Club’s explanation for their Heel Turn is actually pretty logical, because they really should be up higher in the ranks when they’re undefeated in tag team and trios matches. By AEW’s own rules, these guys should’ve been in the tag title stories way sooner, but they ironically still might have to wait a bit. Andrade had a good promo to better frame his reason for ditching Chavo, and then it also implies a rematch of him and Pac that’ll be even bigger. Cargill VS Hirsch was very good but I was still hoping for a bit more. I can’t be sure who gives Cargill her first loss, but it’s probably someone closer to the women’s title.

There was good progress in the Dark Order dysfunction, and I do think the ladies should take charge and become the new leaders of the group with Uno’s ego being in question. They replayed Bryan’s promo from Rampage to set up his segment here tonight, and it was a great segment because of how heated he got with Callis and Omega. Omega VS Bryan in even just a non-title match is amazing, and it could go either way. On one hand, Bryan could win and basically earn himself a title match that way. On the other, Callis can find a way to cheat Bryan, but perhaps that upsets Omega and things get tense within The Elite for just a moment.

Moxley & Kingston had a great main event with 2point0 and Garcia, and of course Moxley & Kingston win to head for the match with Suzuki-Gun. That brawl was an awesome way to close out the night, and I can’t wait to see how brutal Moxley, Kingston, Archer and Suzuki can get, even in a standard tag match.

My Score: 9.1/10

It’s the Double or Nothing Buy-In!

Join Renee Paquette, RJ City and “Double J” Jeff Jarrett in discussing, analyzing and predicting the high stakes, high reward, high octane action set for Sin City tonight!

 

Backstage interview with Charlie Ramon.

Lexy Nair is with AEW’s Special Match Coordinator, and she asks him what goes into tonight’s Barbed Wire Steel Cage? “In this instance, you have a cage that stands over 15 feet tall from the ground up and it weighs over 3,000 pounds. However, woven throughout it will be over 500 feet of barbed wire.” Unbelievable! Now, Adam Copeland was part of the planning process, how did that go? Charlie would normally say it went well, but in this case, Tony Khan’s absence, a lot of emotion, he’ll just say it’s been tough. Then that said, how dangerous is this match? What can we as viewers prepare for?

Normally, a cage match is about ending a feud. In this case, this cage is built for destruction. Then this just got a lot more real. Lexy thanks Charlie for his time, are we about to see the end of one man’s in-ring career?

 

Buy-In – Deonna Purrazzo VS Thunder Rosa!

The Virtuosa took offense to La Mera Mera trying to jump the line right from the moment she returned to action, and ever since, it has been a back and forth both with fists and with words. But Deonna’s been doing a lot more running and hiding than Rosa expected, so it is time to put up or shut up! With the women’s titles on the line later tonight, who wins their spot as next in line?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. Rosa and Deonna stare down, circle, and tie up. They go around, break, and the fans are dueling. Rosa has the majority share, the two go again and tie up. Rosa arm-drags but holds onto the grapple. Deonna arm-drags but also holds onto the grapple. They get up, go to a corner, and the ref counts. Deonna lets off, but RAMS into Rosa! The ref reprimands, Deonna stomps Rosa, then digs her boot in! The ref counts, Deonna lets off and soaks up the heat. Rosa rises up but Deonna whips her. Rosa reverses to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Rosa whips Deonna but Deonna KICKS back!

Deonna swings, Rosa ducks ‘n ‘dodges to tilt-o-whirl RANA! The fans fire up, Rosa throws off the sleeves and runs in to ELBOW! The fans fire up more as Rosa goes corner to corner, but Deonna ELBOWS back! Deonna brings Rosa around to whip but Rosa goes up and over. Rosa DROPKICKS Deonna, the fans fire up, and Rosa grins as she storms back up on Deonna. Rosa stands Deonna up, but Deonna breaks free. Deonna swings, Rosa gets around and arm-drags her away! Deonna bails out, Rosa builds speed and WRECKS Deonna with a dropkick! The fans fire up and Rosa says, “Thank you very much.”

Rosa puts Deonna in, but Deonna bails out. Rosa storms up but Deonna BOOTS her down! The fans boo but Deonna soaks up the heat. Deonna scuffs Rosa, refreshes the count, and she RAMS Rosa into the apron! The ref reprimands, but Deonna CLUBS Rosa in the chest! Rosa gets in the ring, Deonna follows, and she paces around Rosa. Deonna stands on Rosa’s hand, talks trash on her, “This is what you wanted!” But Rosa fires body shots in return! Deonna DECKS Rosa, brushes herself off, then drops a leg on the arm! Deonna scissors the arm but Rosa endures. The fans rally, Deonna shifts around to wrench the arm, but Rosa fires a forearm shot!

Rosa fires more shots but Deonna WRINGS that arm out! Cover, TWO! Deonna is annoyed but she keeps close as Rosa writhes. Deonna grabs the bad arm, kicks it, then knuckle locks to step over. SNAP LOCK! Deonna drags Rosa to a cover, TWO! The fans rally with “SI SE PUEDES!” Deonna YANKS the bad arm, YANKS it again, and then wrenches for an ELBOW BREAKER! Rosa pulls hair, but Deonna wrenches and CLUBS away on the arm! Deonna grinds the bad arm, pulls at Rosa’s hair, but Rosa fights up! Rosa pushes back to a cover, TWO! Rosa has Deonna’s legs, for a SEATED SURFBOARD!

The fans fire up as Rosa pulls Deonna back, then hooks her up. Deonna fights the pendulum and ROCKS Rosa down! Cover, TWO! Deonna clamps onto the bad arm for a top wristlock! Rosa bridges to alleviate pressure and the fans rally up. Rosa fights to sit up, then arm-drag free! Rosa runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, but DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down! The fans fire up again as the two stir. The dueling gets louder, but it still seems like Rosa has the majority if by only a few. The two go forehead to forehead, shout at each other, and Deonna SLAPS! Rosa SLAPS back! Rosa LARIATS! And NECKBREAKER!

Rosa pounds the mat and fans rally as Deonna goes to ropes. Rosa fires up, runs in, DROPKICK! Deonna flounders, Rosa shrieks and covers, TWO! Deonna survives but Rosa keeps her focus. Deonna bails out to the apron but Rosa runs up. The fans cheer on “Women’s Wrestling!” as Rosa ducks the haymaker and ROUNDHOUSES! Rosa goes up and up, but Deonna SLAPS her first! Deonna puts Rosa in the Tree of Woe, then takes aim! Deonna runs up, and RAMS into Rosa! Then she YANKS Rosa out of the Tree, covers, TWO! Deonna is beside herself but Rosa is tough! Deonna slashes her throat as she reels Rosa in, but Rosa wrenches out!

Rosa wrangles Deonna but Deonna fights, so Rosa shifts to a COBRA CLUTCH! The fans fire up and Rosa becomes a backpack. Deonna RAMS Rosa into buckles, arm-drags free, then runs up, but Rosa ROLLING ELBOWS! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives that shot but Rosa snarls. Rosa drags Deonna up, reels her in, and says it’s time! But Deonna wrenches out to wrangle Rosa! FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! Rosa endures, Deonna pushes on the arm, but Rosa rolls her to a cover, TWO! Deonna swings, Rosa gets around, BACKSTABBER! Rosa glares, clamps on, but Deonna fights the Cobra Clutch! Rosa grinds Deonna down, COBRA CROSSFACE!!

Deonna fights forward, reaches out, but Rosa kicks ropes, only for Deonna to roll her to a cover! Deonna holds ropes! DEONNA WINS!!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by pinfall

Rosa is shocked! The Virtuosa proved she’s an expert in stealing the win, because she just did that here! Rosa is about to lose her mind, but is Deonna going to use this move on to bigger things?

 

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn.

Lexy is now with Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass, and says they are facing the #CageofAgony up next, how are they feeling? Billy tells “Penny” that they’re feeling magnificent! And does she know why? Here’s why. Last night, Billy was scrolling through social media, because that is what Billy does, and he comes across Cage & Agony whining and complaining. Brian Cage is always asking “Who Betta?” Well, one, two, three, three betta. Caster says that’s right! That’s right! Brian Cage and his two boys wanna say Caster’s name? They wanna blame Caster for losing Cage’s match? They’ve said his name, but Caster wants to know their names! He still hasn’t learned ’em.

Caster is a fast learner, he went to college, and yet he still can’t remember their names! How long have they been in AEW? How many times have they said their names? Caster couldn’t tell ya. So they wanna say last night on Collision was the biggest night of their career, then guess that’s true! Because they were in the ring with the best wrestlers alive, The Acclaimed! But that match for them was just another day at work. So y’know what? They wanna take it personal? Caster’s taking it personal! He has to wrestle them again, has to lend them his story power, The Acclaimed’s star power, to those three once again!

Caster could’ve been anywhere else, but he’s gotta be here. Caster’s respect is hard to earn, and Cage, you and your two boys, they don’t have any of it! That’s said humbly by the best wrestler alive! Mic drop, BETCH! Bowens steps in to say there’s so much to talk about! They’re live in Las Vegas, the MGM Grand, Double or Nothing! Brian Cage, with your big strong muscles, acted like a little biyatch needing to kick Bowens in the nuts just to win! And now Cage is bringing his boys into this, “The Cage of Agony.” Well Bowens is a #GayInAgony having to listen to Brian whine! Want your name in lights? Here you go! Step up to the plate!

When it is all said and done, all their names will be are NOTHING next to The Acclaimed as they whip some ass all over the strip! And after this, The Acclaimed is gonna go out, play some poker, pull some slots, and win the jackpot! They’ll celebrate all night long because EVERYONE Loves The Acclaimed! But will Sin City be scissoring at the end of the Buy-In?

 

Renee Paquette is on stage.

She says there is a major announcement to come, so please welcome out Martha Hart and Tony Khan! The fans cheer Dr. Martha walks out on stage with TK, and we clearly have the Owen Hart Cup on stage as well. Renee says it is so great to have Dr. Martha here, sot he floor is hers. She says it is great to be back in Vegas for Double or Nothing. And this is a special year for the Owen Hart Foundation, as it is 25 years of philanthropy and giving back. And because of that anniversary, here’s a little something special in mind for the 2024 Owen Hart Cup. The fans chant for “Owen! Owen!” and she joins in.

Martha says Tony Khan should do the honors here, and tell us all what they have in mind. Tony thanks Martha and says hello to the fans. We’ve got something very special planned as the third year of the Owen Hart Cup! It was on Christmas Eve this past year that Martha had a great idea. She said it’d add even more stakes to this great tournament if the winners were given… WORLD TITLE SHOTS! The fans love that idea! Tony loved that idea, too, and so the time and place for the finals of this year’s Owen Hart Cup should be in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, July 10th, the hometown of Owen Hart!

And yes, the winners this year will receive world championship opportunities… at ALL IN LONDON! Tony thanks Martha for all the great work with AEW, and this is a very exciting time. Tony will see everyone in Calgary and in Wembley, happy five year anniversary for AEW! Who gets in on those brackets to become this year’s King and Queen of Harts and future #1 contenders?

 

Buy-In – Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS The Cage of Agony!

We just heard from Caster, Bowens & Daddy Ass tonight, we heard from The Machine, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona the other night, but now it is time to put up or shut up! Well, except for Caster’s diss track.

“The Cage of Agony sounds like a chastity belt. I’ll whip you all, leave you freaky ass with a welt. He a fan, he a fan, he a fan. Brian Cage, limp pee niz, barely a man! Damn, straight bustin’ on these hoes. He barefoot, you probably suckin’ on his toes! You’re a pervert, probably put your long hair in curlers. Yes, I’m on the mic, and it’s a murder. Brian Cage always dressing up but do not lie. These days, why you cosplay as a top guy? To you other guys, I still don’t know your name. But in Vegas…” “Everybody Loves The Acclaimed!” “See? I didn’t even have to finish that.”

Bowens then gets the mic to again tell “LAAAS VEGAAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! Platinum Max just burned up the mic! Will the former AEW World Trios Champions burn the TWO-TIME ROH World Six Man Tag Champions? Or will there still be a question to #WhoBetta?

The trios sort out and Caster starts against Kaun. The fans rally as Kaun says Caster is just talk. But the fans taunt Kaun with “What’s Your Name?” Kaun points to his tights, it’s on his groin! Kaun and Caster tier up, go around, and Kaun puts Caster in a corner. Kaun smothers Caster, lets off at 4, but Caster BACKHANDS him! Caster headlocks but Kaun powers out. Caster dodges, runs, but Kaun drops, hurdles, but Caster waistlocks. Kaun switches, Caster bucks the O’Conner, but then Kaun throws Caster down by his hair! Caster gets up but Kaun LARIATS! Cover, ONE! Caster goes to ropes and uses those as a defense.

Kaun and Caster reset, but in tags Billy Gunn! The fans fire up and Billy tells Cage to get in here! The fans fire up for “DADDY ASS! DADDY ASS!” as Cage tags in. Cage flexes on Billy, the fans boo, but Billy says hold up. Billy flexes and the fans cheer! Billy and Cage circle, tie up, and Cage knees low. Cage headlocks, Billy powers up and out, but Cage runs him over! Billy goes to a corner while Cage soaks up the heat and flexes again. Billy stands back up, Cage talks some trash, but the fans taunt his “LITTLE WEENIE!” Cage and Billy tie up, Billy headlocks, but Cage powers up and out. Billy runs Cage over! The fans fire up as Billy flexes and swaggers!

Billy then says “SUCK IT!” Cage swings on Billy but Billy counter punches! Billy fires hands, whips, but Cage goes up and over to roll Billy! Billy rolls through but Cage basement dropkicks! Cage soaks up the heat, Caster tags in, but the Gates BLAST The Acclaimed first! Cage clotheslines Billy against ropes, they get stuck up there, then finally tip over and out to the floor! It’s chaos now as the teams brawl! Kaun sends Bowens into steel steps! Cage sends Billy into railing! Kaun stomps Caster while Liona sticks Bowens between steps and post! Liona CLUBS Bowens, then SMACKS him off the steps! Cage digs his boots in, Kaun sends Caster into railing!

Liona drags Billy up now, to send into the steel steps! The impact jams Bowens’ bad leg up! Bowens falls in a heap and clutches his leg but the ref reprimands Cage and the others. Cage gets in the ring, Liona and Kaun follow, and they aim at Caster in a corner. Liona runs in to clothesline! Kaun runs in to clothesline! Cage runs in to UPPERCUT! Tag to Kaun, then Cage hauls Caster up to the top rope. Kaun climbs, scoops, TOP ROPE BACKBREAKER! Caster flops to the apron! Liona APRON SENTONS! Cage tags in and he deadlift SUPERPLEXES Caster!! Cover, TWO!! Caster survives and Cage is annoyed but the fans fire up!

Cage tags Kaun back in, they get Caster up and mug him. Kaun CHOPS and Caster falls to his knees! Kaun drags Caster up, CHOPS again, then bumps him off buckles. Tag to Liona, he fires body shots from all sides! Liona snapmares then KICKS Caster in the back! The fans boo but Liona digs his foot into Caster’s face! The ref counts, Liona lets off, and Caster flounders to a corner. Liona stands on Caster again! The ref counts, Liona lets off at 4, and Liona gets in the ref’s face so that Kaun can CHOKE Caster! The fans boo, the ref senses something and reprimands Kaun. Cage tags in, but Caster kicks back!

Caster fires hands but Cage JUMP KNEES! Cage puts Caster back in the corner to RAM into him! And RAM him again! And then CHOP! Cage hoists Caster up top, climbs up, “Who betta than Cage?!” Caster fires body shots! Caster shoves Cage down, Kaun tags in! Kaun ROCKS Caster, goes up, but Caster fires hands! Kaun staggers back, Caster adjusts and CROSSBODIES! Cover, but the ref is busy checking Billy! TWO!! Liona tags in, and he BLASTS Billy! Billy gets up and in but the ref keeps him back!

Malakai Black speaks.

“For the life of a creature is in the blood. And I have been given it, from you, to make atonement for yourself on the altar. This altar, this cage, which will serve as your confessional, Cope. And every tear in your skin will serve as an admission of your guilt. This bloodletting, a release from bounds that you put on yourself. I will not stop, I will not yield. No, I will meet you in the abyss that we created together. And I will look you in the eyes, and I will absolve you through torture and death. What do you see when you look at me, Adam?” Is the Dark Father going to become the Face of TNT? Or will he regret pushing The Rated R Superstar to the edge?

PLAY BY PLAY

Jon Moxley is here!

While The Maniac is going to face Konosuke Takeshita in a Title Eliminator regarding his IWGP World Heavyweight Championship, he’s here tonight at the sight of his AEW debut five years ago! That night was Double or Nothing 2019 and he gave Kenny Omega a Paradigm Shift onto the stack of giant poker chips, but it would seem he’s gonna be face to face with Don Callis now. Callis makes his way out to the ring now and fans boo him and his weird low bass rumble theme song. Callis says he has something important to say, and he tells Jon that he isn’t here to cause any trouble. Callis just wants to talk about their history.

Did everyone know that on Callis’ second night in AEW, he cost Moxley the AEW World Championship? Hey, he’s trying to talk to Moxley, stay out of this! The fans keep booing, but Callis says Moxley literally got his pound of flesh. Roll the footage of the night Moxley decked Callis and caused him to be cut open! Then Callis turned on Kenny Omega just a few nights later! Look at Moxley take advantage of that! Without knowing it, they both changed the course of this company! Every morning, Moxley is the first person Callis thinks about, because Callis sees this scar. TWENTY-FOUR stitches! For most, that’d be a deal breaker.

But Callis says he and Moxley aren’t like most people. Not like all of these normies in the crowd! Ironic of Callis to say that when these “normal people” want to see Moxley scar Callis again… But Callis says when he was in the hospital, Moxley opened the door. Callis thought Moxley was gonna finish the job! Moxley put his hand on Callis’ shoulder and said, “You’re one of us now.” Callis looked Moxley in the eyes, and what he saw was nothing! The same as when Callis looks in his eyes. The worst kept secret as that these two are a lot alike. They see everything, but feel nothing! They are “high-functioning sociopaths,” and pro-wrestling gave them a platform to change the world!

Thirty years ago, guys like them would be an institution somewhere! But they worked together and Moxley beat Omega. The fans tell Callis to STFU, but Callis tells Moxley that when Moxley said “You’re one of us now,” Moxley was right! Callis helped Moxley beat Omega, but who didn’t Callis didn’t have to help? Takeshita. And Jon, this isn’t a threat, but Moxley has Takeshita tomorrow and it kills Callis. Callis doesn’t want to see this match. Imagine instead, them on parallel yet separate paths, and just once, if they were going it he same direction! They could run AEW! Tony Khan couldn’t stop them! The UN couldn’t stop them!!

So Callis isn’t here to pitch anything, Moxley’s too smart for that. But just imagine what this could be like. They’re alike! They’re not alone! So instead of the eliminator, use that time to make an announcement about Moxley’s future with The Callis Family! What does Callis have to do to get this done? Moxley is taken aback, paces a bit, and fans want him to deck Callis already. Callis offers the mic and Moxley takes it. The fans sing, “F HIM UP, F HIM UP!” Moxley tells Callis, “Okay, just one question.” Anything! What is it? “Well, if you and I are gonna trust each other, if we’re gonna be on the same page, I’m gonna need more of a commitment than that little baby scar on your forehead right there.”

So how about 24 MORE scars in that big bald head of Callis’? But then Takeshita CLOBBERS Moxley from behind! This was the plan all along, wasn’t it? ALPHA ELBOW!! Takeshita then gets a chair, brings it in, and he puts it around Moxley’s arm! Takeshita stands on the arm, then goes up the corner! The fans boo and Takeshita flips Moxley off, before the DIVING STOMP!! Moxley’s arm could very well be broken inside the chair! And then Takeshita STOMPS the chair more! Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli rush out here and that sends The Callis Family running! The damage has been done, will Moxley be able to stop Takeshita tomorrow night?

 

AEW shares Will Ospreay’s message from after Dynamite last Wednesday.

“You think I look pretty bad about now, right? Nah, this is nothing. Mate, I’ve been on full night benders, woke up in the morning, had a bowl of Coco Pops, got on a plane to Japan, called out the toughest guy and whooped on him in front of his wife and kids while I was smiling, bruv! You think this is the end, Messiah? What, am I to believe in you, am I? You think this scares me? I EFFIN’ LIVE FOR THIS, BRUV! I flew all the way from England on a 10 hour flight, got transferred over the Bakersfield, and this is the best that you got? My Messiah, am I meant to believe in you? Am I meant to believe?

“Nah, mate. The only thing that i believe is bell to bell, internationally known, no one is better than me inside that ring. And now what you’ve done, mate, now what you’ve done is just bonded me with that championship. My blood is on that championship, so now it is my duty, it is my spirit, that is bonded with that championship! So Sunday, in the perfect city to do it in, bet it all, gamble your life on it, son. Cuz now, it is my last mission to take that International Championship from you! And Hell or high water, nothing, nobody, is better than Will Ospreay. Cuz I am on another level!” Will Roddy learn he’s not a Savior but a False Prophet of the Backbreaker?

 

Six Man Tag: Claudio Castagnoli, Daniel Garcia & ??? VS Lance Archer & The Righteous!

The Swiss Superman and the Dragonslayer are teaming together to take on The Murderhawk Monster, as well as good ol’ Dutch & Vincent, all to avenge what they tried to do to Bryan Danielson & FTR. But who is their third man, brother? It’s HIROSHI TANAHASHI! The Ace of the Universe, the President of NJPW, and one-third of the NEVER Openweight Six Man Champions is here on Collision! Will Ace-sachou be just the trump card Claudio & Garcai need to win big in Sin City?

The trios sort out, the fans lose their minds seeing Tanahashi, but we get Claudio and Dutch starting off. Claudio and Dutch tie up, are in a deadlock, and Claudio powers Dutch back to ropes. The ref counts, Claudio lets off cleanly, but Dutch uppercuts! Dutch headlocks, Claudio powers up and out, but Dutch RAMS him! Claudio RAMS back! Dutch RAMS again!

The fans are thunderous as Tanahashi air guitars and Garcia does his dance! Dutch runs in, Claudio catches him and trips him! The fans fire up, Garcia plays air guitar and Tanahashi does the dance!

Winners: Claudio Castagnoli, Daniel Garcia & Hiroshi Tanahashi, by pinfall

A huge moment for these three, and they celebrate with Garcia’s dance! Will, Claudio isn’t really into it, not his style. But will this mean big things are in store for Forbidden Door next month?

 

The following message is on behalf of The Elite.

“When it comes to the tireless work of your EVPs, the job is never done. While being the greatest tag team ever is glamorous, it is in the countless hours of thankless service to every single employee where Matthew & Nicholas find their true glory. From the global stars of AEW to the ring crew and everyone in between, The Elite always give back to the business that has given them so much. However, four men, four violent, ungrateful, ignorant, deranged men, want only to destroy what their humble, selfless work has built.” Anarchy in the Arena is coming, but for the fans, your EVPs will never shy away from adversity in their pursuit to #ChangeTheWorld.

So, clearly biased and edited to favor The Young Bucks, Kazuchika Okada & Jack Perry, but will The Elite stop at nothing to stay in control?

 

The Gunn Brothers VS The Lucha Brothers!

The Bang Bang Gang punked out Pac, and that sparked the flame that revived Death Triangle! But in order to make their coming Six Man Tag match for all the gold, Austin & Colten are taking on Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix in a battle of brothers! Will there be zero titles on the line at Double or Nothing? Or will there be CERO MIEDO!?

The teams sort out but things are tense. The ref has them all back off, and we get Penta starting against Austin. The fans rally with “CERO! MIEDO!” Austin is annoyed, he and Penta circle, and Austin mocks Penta’s swagger. Penta shoves Austin and tells him, “Listen! CERO! MIEDO!” And pie face! Austin says Penta should listen! “GUNNS!

Pac is here to celebrate with his hermanos! But Jay White hurries out to support the Gunns. The Switchblade vows that the Bang Bang Gang will keep their titles! But will they regret ever bullying The Bastard?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey.

Arkady Aura is with The Learning Tree & “Redwood,” and notes Jericho’s FTW Championship will be a Triple Threat after Hook and Katsuyori Shibata got a double submission victory. Does this bother Jericho at all? Bill says if he may be so bold, if there is one thing Jericho has always said, it is that when you face adversity, and you are facing the darkest hour, you have to dig deep to pull out the light. Bill is sure that applies here. Jericho agrees. And he loves Arkady’s name, it sounds like a place where you play video games. Anyway, to be serious, he was not expecting to have two opponents.

But now that he does, after 33 YEARS of being on top of the wrestling world, doing the greatest things that’ve ever been done, the fan support that he has, he knows he’ll have to work extra hard to retain the title. But as the longest reigning “For The World Champion” at 44 days, Jericho thinks he will come away with a win. When you’re The Learning Tree, you have to be ready to face all adversaries, and all different types of opponents. But then in walks Bryan Keith. The Bounty Hunter says he missed his shot, but he promises that this ain’t the last we’ve seen of him. Keith heads out, Jericho smiles and thanks him for that.

Will The Ocho defy the one-third odds he has to still be the one with the gold?

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS KM!

#CombatKyle is still a bit sore from losing to Malakai Black, but he isn’t gonna let The End be the end of his comeback! Will he just keep fighting until he’s going for gold?

The bell rings and Kyle runs up to fire off on KM! KM shoves Kyle, swings, but Kyle body shots, KICKS and KICKS! Kyle runs, but KM DROPKICKS him! KM fires up, wrenches and whips Kyle corner to corner hard, and he asks, “Who suck snow?!” The fans say “YOU!” KM runs in, but into a BOOT! KM comes back, into another boot! KM tries again, Kyle dodges the splash! GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! KM RAMS Kyle into buckles, but Kyle holds on tight, body scissors included! KM fades, so Kyle lets go to KICK! AX and- NO, KM blocks the smash! Then he blocks a kick! But Kyle blocks a haymaker to get the ARMBAR!! KM taps, Kyle wins!

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by submission

KOR > KM, and now Kyle is all fired up! Will Kyle be primed to fight for a title after AEW goes Double or Nothing?

 

Willow Nightingale is here!

The fans cheer as the TBS Champion, and her good pal Kris Statlander, heads to the ring. Kris leaves it to Willow from here, and Willow steps in the ring to get a mic. The Babe with the Power says, “Las Vegaaaaas~! Y’know, it feels really great to be here. And on the fifth anniversary of All Elite Wrestling, none the less. And we got Collision on TBS tonight, and you can’t have Collision on TBS without The Face of TBS!” The fans cheer that! Willow revels in their chants a moment before saying thanks. But she also thinks about last night’s Rampage, and how someone else put their hands on her TBS Championships: Mercedes Mone.

The fans are torn but mostly boo The CEO. Willow says Mone has been here about two months, and Willow keeps talking about respect. But we’re way past that now. Tomorrow night, Double or Nothing, Willow will WRECK Mone! She will make Mone long for the days when she was out of harm’s way, sitting at home on the shelf! And Willow knows that championships come and go. But she’ll be DAMNED if tomorrow is the night this reign ends! Because for years, Willow has been working towards HER dream. She’s had knee surgery! Not many known this, but she was almost PARALYZED by a neck injury five years ago, before ever getting to AEW!

So now, Willow gets to live her dream as TBS Champion. And Willow will go through Manitoba Massacres, she will hop on planes to go to Japan, 14 hours each way, and fight in a Stardom ring. So Mercedes, Willow is just getting started! The fans fire up for Willow and she nods. Willow tells Mone that Mone says Willow can’t beat her at 100%. But Willow knows Mone can’t beat Willow at any percent! Because last year, Willow did just that! And tomorrow, at Double or Nothing, she proves that the better woman IS Willow Nightingale! The fans are fired up as Willow holds that title high, but will she be holding it at the end of Sunday night?

 

Backstage interview with Trent Beretta.

Lexy Nair is with #JustTrent and says that he has all the moment going into his match with Orange Cassidy. Aside from that, this is also deeply personal. We saw Trent end Chuck Taylor’s in-ring career, is he going to try that with Cassidy? Trent says that he’s already said everything that he’s had to say about “that con-man narcissist.” Trent vows that tomorrow night, he shows the whole world something Trent’s known for a long time. But in steps Rocky Romero. Azucar knows they haven’t talked, he just wanted to see him before tomorrow night. It’s a big night, Trent’s been here since day one, lots of memories between what was The Best Friends.

No matter what, Rocky just hopes there is a way they can all put this all behind them. They’re more than Best Friends, they’re family! Trent says that’s not happening at all. And don’t ever interrupt him again. Trent leaves, Rocky isn’t sure what to make of that, is Trent already past the point of no return?

 

Fatal 4 Way Tag: The Acclaimed VS The Gates of Agony VS The House of Black VS The Infantry!

While The Young Bucks are busy with Anarchy in the Arena tomorrow night, they will need challengers for their AEW World Tag Team Championships at some point. This match will go a long way in clearing out the pack, who stands tall after this massive match as strong contenders?

But wait, Platinum Max has a diss track on deck! “The House of Black ain’t about s*it, a new ball gag would fit right in with those outfits! I treat Infantry like infants, getting overpowered. Fake American heroes, y’all’re stolen valor! I heard you rap but you’re not as cold as ours. You pissed me off, now you got the golden shower. From the tip of my pee niz to the top of your tongue, don’t talk about me, b*tch! I heard Brian Cage can’t stay hard, your other two guys, I don’t know what their names are! They still talk a big game, but in Vegas, Everybody Loves The Acclaimed!”

Bowens then takes the mic to say, “LAAAS VEGAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! Caster’s words really sting and those punchlines were smart, but will The Acclaimed return to the top of the tag charts?

The teams all sort out, and in this form of Fatal 4, only two teams are legal at a time. Caster and Carlie Bravo start, circle, and they tie up. Bravo rolls Caster up, ONE! Caster rolls Bravo up, TWO! Bravo sweeps to cover, ONE! Caster sweeps to cover, ONE! They stand off, Caster pushes Bravo but Bravo pushes back. They circle, Caster avoids the House of Black and tags Bowens. Bravo isn’t as aware, Buddy Matthews tags in off him. Buddy and Bowens circle, but then Bishop Kaun tags himself in! The Cameroonian Prince tells Bowens to split, then he ties up with the Aussie Juggernaut. Buddy headlocks but Kaun powers out. They RAM shoulders, then Kaun goes again.

They RAM shoulders again, Buddy hits a headlock takeover. Kaun headscissors, Buddy kips free, and the two stand off. Brody calls to Buddy, Buddy tags him in. But Kaun tags Toa Liona and the fans fire up for the big meaty men! Brody and Liona circle, they BLAST Infantry and Acclaimed! Then they run up to LARIAT! “MEAT!” The forearms fly, “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” Bowens gets in but Brody DECKS him! The “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” continues but Caster gets in. Liona DECKS Caster! The “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” gets going, both Infantry get in. Liona and Brody DECK them both! Then Brody ROCKS Liona!

Kaun runs up, Brody BOOTS him! Brody brings Liona up but Liona fireman’s carries! Brody slips free to HEADBUTT, but it hurts Brody! You never headbutt a Samoan! Liona fireman’s carries, Buddy runs up, so Liona dumps Brody to knee Buddy! Liona TOSSES Buddy out, UPPERCUTS him, then ROCKS Brody! Brody leans on ropes, Liona roars, but he runs, and Buddy dumps him out! The teams all fight o the outside, and BRODY DIVES!! Direct hit into the cluster, STRIKE! The fans are thunderous as we go picture in picture!

The House drags people up, Buddy SMACKS Bravo off steps, then THRWOS him into barriers! Brody CHOKES Caster then CLUBS him down! Bowens goes after Liona but Liona RAMS him into steel steps! Brody chokes Caster, Kaun is sent into barriers, and the House mugs Bravo. Brody CLUBS Bowens, Liona throws Shawn Dean around, it is just chaos on the outside! Buddy CHOPS Bravo, Brody CLUBS Bowens, The Gates mug Dean! The ref wants someone to get in the ring, so Liona and Brody storm in. They circle, snarl, but then Caster tags in off Brody! Caster stays back, Buddy tags in off Liona. Buddy runs up, Caster dodges to BACKHAND!

Caster has Buddy in a corner, goes up, but Buddy DUMPS Caster to the apron! But Caster ROCKS Buddy in return! The fans fire up as Caster climbs, but Buddy trips Caster up! Buddy climbs, he brings Caster up, and SUPERPLEXES! Cover, TWO! Buddy tags Brody, then he scoop SLAMS Caster! Brody runs to SENTON! Brody drags Caster up, Collision returns to single picture, and Brody CHPOS Caster down! Tag to Buddy, he ROCKS Caster. The fans rally, Buddy clamps on a SLEEPER! Caster endures, reaches out, and the fans rally more. Caster fights up, JAWBREAKERS, and then flounders.

Buddy anchors Caster’s foot, yanks him back and he BLASTS Bowens! Caster reaches for The Infantry but Buddy keeps Caster from them, too. The Infantry avoid the sucker punches, then Caster dodges Buddy! Infantry get in Caster SUPERKICKS Buddy! The Infantry DOUBLE SUPERKICK! Brody tags in, he misses wide, DOUBLE SUPERKICKS, then DOUBLE SUPERKICKS, then TRIPLE SUPERKICKS!! Brody finally falls, Kaun runs up! SUPERKICK from Caster! TRIPLE SUPERKICKS again! Liona runs up, he CLOBBERS Caster, then breaks through the Infantry’s line to DOUBLE CROSSBODY!

The fans are torn as Liona drags Caster over, tags himself in off Caster, then fires up. Liona runs in at Brody to SPLASH! “MEAT!” Buddy is up top! METEORA! Buddy turns around, Kaun uses Liona as a step for a FLYING SHOTGUN! Caster returns to fireman’s carry, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER on Kaun! Linoa throat chops Caster! Infantry mugs Liona, they hook him up, but Brody CLUBs them all! Brody fires off on Liona, reels him in, but Liona is so big! Linoa fireman’s carries to SAMOAN DROP! Cover, Caster breaks it! Liona glares and grabs Caster by his neck! Liona SHOVES Caster out, but Bravo tags in!

Bravo ROCKS Liona, DUMPS him out, then hurries in. There’s more brawling outside between Gates and Acclaimed, but The Infantry take the corners! They take aim, STEREO SUPER CROSSBODIES!! The fans fire up again and The Infantry are in. They dodge Brody, BOOT Buddy, SUPERKICK and FOREARM for Brody, repeat! They reel Brody in, but he powers out of the double suplexes! The Infantry bob ‘n’ weave, the brawling on the outside gets wilder as Billy Gunn and Brian Cage join in! The Infantry hook Brody up, but Buddy disrupts Boot Camp! Brody CLOBBERS Dean! The other teams are just gone, fighting all the way to the back!

Buddy has Bravo in a corner, the fans hoot with Brody, and he runs in at Bravo, CANNONBALL DROPKICK COMBO!! Cover, The House wins!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

Brody King & Buddy Matthews are truly a dangerous duo, will they be aimed right at the AEW World Tag Team Champions after Double or Nothing? Will Malakai Black step into the barbed wire steel cage and prove the House Always Wins?

 

Adam “Edge” Copeland speaks.

“Malakai… House of Black… You took the one item that kept me tethered to my comfortable world. The second I stepped foot in AEW, I knew it was only a matter of time before you’d set your sights on me. You were born out of the shadows that I cast. But I’ve been walking this path since before your balls dropped. But you’ve shown me. You’ve shown me where I need to navigate from. I need to go back to the pits. To the margins, to the outside looking in. You wanted this version of me, the version that has a devil on this shoulder, but no angel to be found.

“It’s fitting that this barbed wire steel cage match happens in the land of neon lights, and the violence that will take place within this steel cage is a fitting juxtaposition. Malakai, you said if I lose, I bend the knee, I join the House of Black. Oh, can you imagine? Can you imagine the force that we would be? And in a storybook ending, you defeat your influence, only we… We don’t deal in dreams. Our currency is nightmares, this is a horror story. Has it ever dawned on you, Malakai, that I used this to get closer to The House? What if I defeat you, and the House joins me?

“Buddy and Brody know the Devil that lives in my heart. I’ve been known to be a master manipulator. The House of Blood… That’s something I can sink my teeth into. Questions. So many questions. But Malakai, know this fact: When you see evil in a man’s eyes, it’s already too late.” Edge snaps his fingers and the lights go out. Will this darkness consume all of AEW as things get Rated R?

 

AEW shares Toni Storm’s message from after Dynamite.

“Serena Deeb… This isn’t for you. This is for everyone like you. This is for everyone that thinks that because they’ve had a sad life, it entitles them to some kind of reward. Nothing happens for a reason, darling. Things just happen. If everything happened for a reason, then there would be ONE main event at Double or Nothing, and it would be me talking for 40 minutes while you sit around and analyze my words like a Zapruder Film! But no, instead I have to fight for my life against a woman who thinks that twitching on the floor was a sign from the universe that she should keep wrestling!

“You want to be a victim? I will make you a victim. I will make your three seizures feel like a Sunday stroll in the bloody park! The saddest part about your life is that you thought it had any meaning at all. But don’t worry. In your obituary, they will mention that you lost to the champ.” The leading lady is even more vicious than ever, will she make sure Deeb never works in this town again?

 

Mariah May VS Leyla Hirsch!

Toni Storm’s protege is herself riding high after the big tag win on Wednesday, but now she’s got a LEGIT opponent standing across from her. Will Mariah still be able to shine on her own? Or will she be lost without her mentor by her side?

The bell rings, the fans rally, and the two circle. They tie up, Mariah powers Leyla to ropes, and the ref counts. Mariah lets off, Leyla runs up and gets around. Leyla shoves Mariah to a corner, runs up, but Mariah goes up and over. Leyla storms up on Mariah again, but Mariah CHOPS! Mariah shrugs, CHOPS again, then CHOPS again. Mariah CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Leyla ROCKS her! Leyla gets in Mariah’s face, or uh, chest rather. So Mariah makes sure Leyla gets a face full of it! The fans fire up, Leyla is flustered, and Mariah does a little dance. Leyla is furious, Mariah shrugs, and then Leyla clinches! BELLY2BELLY!

Leyla drags Mariah up but Mariah fireman’s carries! SAMOAN DROP! Mariah sits Leyla up, runs, and SHOTGUNS Leyla down! Mariah rocks out and Collision goes picture in picture.

Mariah swaggers around as the fans cheer, and she brings Leyla up. Mariah bumps Leyla off buckles, and puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOPS! Leyla shoves Mariah, Mariah scuffs her, then snapmares her. Mariah does a little prance then runs to PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO! Mariah clamps onto Leyla with a body scissors and full nelson, then shifts to a short arm scissor! Leyla fights around, powers Mariah to a pump handle and cording hold! Mariah throws Leyla off her, then DECKS her! Mariah continues to swagger, drags Leyla up and scoops, for the SPIN OUT SIDEWALK SLAM! Mariah is having a little too much fun as Leyla flops out of the ring.

Mariah goes out after Leyla, drags her up and fireman’s carries, but Leyla fights free. Leyla RAMS Mariah into steel steps! Leyla puts Mariah in, stomps her, then clamps on a rear bearhug! Mariah endures the squeeze, fights up to her feet, but Leyla whips her into a corner. Leyla runs up to ROCK Mariah, and she rolls to come back, SWINGING DROPKICK! Collision returns to single picture as the fans rally up for Mariah. Leyla drags Mariah into a drop zone, steps on her and climbs up. The fans cheer for Leyla, “SHE’S LEGIT! SHE’S LEGIT!” MOONSAULT FLOPS as Mariah moves! Mariah CLOBBERS Leyla!

Mariah LARIATS Leyla, BOOTS her, then hits a SAIDO! Fans fire up with Mariah and she goes to a corner. Mariah climbs, leaps and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Leyla is still in this but Mariah grits her teeth. The fans rally, Mariah drags Leyla up and bumps her off buckles. Mariah puts Leyla up top, CHOPS her, then storms around. Mariah runs corner to corner, to go into the STRATUSPHERE! Leyla flounders, Mariah says kiss this! SWEET HIP- NO, Leyla gets around to O’Conner Roll! Then she blocks a kick to get around and GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Mariah survives and Leyla is stunned!

Leyla hurries to drag Mariah up, the fans rally and duel, but Mariah ROCKS Leyla! Leyla gets Mariah in a clinch, but Mariah slips out! Mariah HEADBUTTS Leyla, then KNEES her down!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

And with that, Storm’s understudy puts away another one! Will Mariah be primed for a title opportunity of her own after Double or Nothing?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Double or Nothing!

After Brian Cage called The Acclaimed out last night on Rampage, and after the brawling that took them all out of the Fatal 4 Way tonight, Tony Khan has made a big Six Man Tag grudge match for The Buy-In! Will The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn get a big win on Sunday? Or will they fail to escape the #CageOfAgony?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexy is now with The Professor, and brings up those “vicious” comments by Toni Storm. We are less than 24 hours from their match, is Deeb ready? Deeb says tomorrow night is the biggest match of her career. Double or Nothing, or perhaps Deeb or Nothing. Toni Storm, in this lead up to the match, they’ve had some fun and games. Storm stole the banner, paraded around in it, but let Deeb ask you this: It wasn’t so fun when you had to throw in the towel and save that stooge, Mariah, from losing a leg, now was it? And Deeb is sure Mariah is grateful to Storm for making sure she could walk out of there that night. But Deeb can’t say the same for Storm.

Deeb will stretch Storm limb from limb, and it’s been a long time coming. Tomorrow night, Deeb finally becomes AEW Women’s World Champion! And “Timeless” Toni Storm will become Time’s Up Toni Storm. See you tomorrow night. The Professor is ready to teach the Leading Lady a life lesson, will it have to be learned the hard way?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Swerve VS Christian.

The Patriarch says, “Swerve, I felt it was apropos to return to the scene of the crime. The crime you committed against my son. My son, Nick, learned to walk in this ring before he could even run these ropes. Because you didn’t just jump my son, Nick, in a random wrestling gym. You jumped him on holy ground. An eye for an eye.” Swerve admits his methods were a “little misunderstood,” a little skewed, but he always got things done in the ring. No one can ever say Swerve didn’t deserve the world title. Christian hears a lot about Swerve’s House. And he told Swerve that he never forgets.

All In Wembley, Swerve embarrassed Christian. Christian said he’d make Swerve a footnote, but that’s no longer enough. Swerve must be held accountable for his crimes. Two years in AEW and people are still calling Swerve a footnote. He’s on TV, he promises AEW, he promotes AEW on radio and podcasts. He is the face of AEW, the world is forgetting Christian Cage. Christian reminds us that he is taking something from Swerve every week. For every ounce of Nick’s blood that was spilt, Christian is taking the title. Swerve asks if Nick’s yet to learn his lessons. Swerve doesn’t think they have it in them to do this to a world champion!

Swerve has built his house, and at Double or Nothing, he proves it’s whose house? The reason Swerve is not sleeping at home is because he’s too busy building this house! Christian vows to wipe Swerve from the annals of AEW, and to become the NEW AEW World Champion. Two fathers fighting for their families and their legacies, but whose house must suffer for the other’s to thrive?

 

Six Man Tag; Bryan Danielson & FTR VS Team Triple J!

The American Dragon & #TopGuys made it through Archer & The Righteous last week, but another faction just had to take The Elite up on that Double or Nothing bounty. Will Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh get another big bag of money for this hit job? Or will Bryan, Dax & Cash prove nothing’s gonna stop them before Anarchy in the Arena?

The trios sort out but Triple J keeps ’em guessing. Things finally settle down, and it is Bryan starting against Jarrett. They circle, tie up, and Jarrett arm-drags! And arm-drags again! And even a JAPANESE ARM-DRAG! Jarrett does the Fargo Strut, and he tags in Lethal! Bryan keeps cool as he and Lethal circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Lethal knees low. Lethal swaggers, pie faces, runs, but into a kitchen sink knee! Bryan KICKS Lethal, drags him up, and tags in Dax. Dax kicks Lethal, puts him in a corner, and CHOPS! And UPPERCUTS! And CHOPS again! Dax brings Lethal over, bumps him off buckles, then whips.

Cash tags in, then slingshots to SHOULDER TACKLE! The fans fire up and Cash bumps Lethal off buckles hard! Lethal sputters, Cash CHOPS him! Cash goes up, and he rains down fists! But Jarrett storms in, so Cash CROSSBODIES him! Lethal gets Cash but Cash atomic drops back! Cash finishes up on those fists, but Jarrett distracts the ref, and Satnam grabs Cash by the neck! HOTSHOT for Cash! Satnam drags Cash out to CHOP! Sonjay laughs at Cash, the ref tells Triple J to back off, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Satnam shoves Cash in for Lethal to drag around. Lethal has the leg, stomps it, steps through, FIGURE FOUR! Cash endures and his team coaches him but Lethal thrashes the leg! Cash reaches out, has to be careful about his shoulders, and he ROCKS Lethal! Lethal lets Cash go, but then CLUBS Cash! Lethal stomps and CLUBS Cash, then tags Jarrett in. They double whip but Cash reverses. Only to get caught in a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Jarrett taunts Dax, stomps Cash, then kicks him around. Jarrett stomps Cash more and more, then drags him up. Jarrett whips, ELBOWS Cash down, and he stays between Cash and his team.

Jarrett drags Cash around to drop elbows on the knee! Jarrett then clamps on a toehold and pulls on the leg. Cash endures, tries to fight back but Jarrett elbows him. Cash CLUBS away on Jarrett, Jarrett elbows him again, and Cash’s shoulders are down! TWO, and Cash CLAWS at Jarrett’s face! Jarrett lets go of the leg to stomp it! Jarrett KICKS the leg out, and Cash falls over again. Cash rises, but Jarrett KICKS the leg again! And then clamps on for a SHIN BREAKER! Jarrett drags Cash around, steps through, but Cash BOOTS him away! Jarrett hits buckles, falls back, and Collision returns to single picture!

Both men crawl for their corners, the fans rally, and Lethal jumps in to get Cash’s leg! Cash still jumps around, and hot tags Dax! Dax JABS, JABS and DECKS Lethal! And DECKS Jarrett! Dax whips Lethal, Lethal reverses but Dax snatches him for a package, TWO! Dax whips, Lethal reverses, and Satnam gets the cheap shot! LETHAL COMBINATION! The fans boo but Lethal storms up on Dax. Lethal drags Dax over, points to the big man, and the fans boo. But Lethal tags in the One in a Billion! Satnam dribbles Dax like a basketball! The fans do cheer the show of strength, and Jarrett says he and Lethal can just relax now!

Jarrett & Lethal take a seat in some chairs, Karen sitting on her hubby’s lap, and Satnam palms Dax’s head like a basketball! Cash AX HANDLES, but Satnam is just upset! Satnam SHOVES Cash up and out! Dax is in a corner, Satnam run sin, but Dax dodges! No more relaxing, Jarrett tags in! But so does Bryan! The fans fire up as Bryan fires hands on Jarrett! “YES! YES! YES!” The fans fire up as Bryan KICKS away on Jarrett, “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan climbs up to rain down fists! The fans count all the way to TEN, then Bryan whips corner to corner. Jarrett reverses, Bryan goes up and over and keeps moving! Bryan ducks ‘n’ dodges to LEAPING LARIAT!

Vegas is all fired up with Bryan and he runs to DROPKICK in the corner! Bryan keeps moving, another DROPKICK! Bryan keeps moving, but gets under Jarrett’s lariat to wrangle him! Omoplata, LEBELL LOCK! Lethal CLOBBERS Bryan! Cash storms in, DUMPS Lethal out, and then he calls to Bryan. Bryan builds speed, and DIVES while Cash PLANCHAS! Down go Lethal and Jarrett! Dax says OLE to Satnam and sends him into steel steps! Satnam hobbles his way into the ring, Bryan & FTR get in! They surround the giant, and they KICK! KICK! KICK! “YES! YES! YES!” TRIPLE KICKS rattle Satnam from all sides!

Bryan winds up, to BUZZSAW! FTR mock The Bucks, F T R TRIGGER!! And then BUSAIKU KNEE!!! Satnam staggers about! Lethal gets in, DOUBLE LETHAL INJECTION on FTR!! But Bryan DISCUS LARIATS Lethal! Jarrett reels Bryan in, but Bryan slips around! Jarrett still RAMS Bryan into buckles! The fans boo as now Karen gets Jarrett the guitar! But the ref snatches it! Aubrey’s been through this crap before and she tells Karen, “Not tonight, b*tch!” But then Sonjay gets Jarrett a chair! Jarrett aims at Bryan, takes a swing, but Bryan dodges and the chair SMACKS Satnam!! The giant tumbles up and out!!

Bryan aims, Jarrett panics, BUSAIKU KNEE!! Lethal runs in, into a SHATTER MACHINE!! Cover on Jarrett, Team AEW wins!

Winners: Bryan Danielson & FTR, by pinfall

Karen is furious but there’s nothing she can do about it! Cash gets a mic and says, “2020, FTR made the debut in AEW for the first time in our careers. Four years ago, that very moment, AEW became our home. AEW is where I will live, I will breathe, I will fight, I will DIE for this company! Everybody, wrestling fans, are better off because of AEW. Wrestlers are better off because of AEW! The entire wrestling world is better off because of All Elite Wrestling!” The fans agree with all of that! Cash says FTR & Bryan might be beat up, might be hurt, they and Darby Allin might limp into Double or Nothing. But Cash swears that they’re the only ones that’ll walk out!

Dax takes the mic to say that five years ago, almost to the day, in this building, the same people here tonight, this company started. Why is FTR fighting for AEW? It is not just this company that FTR is fighting for. They are fighting for every single man and woman that wakes up in the morning, goes to work, has a terrible day, but comes home, turns their TVs on, and watches AEW. And for that one moment in time, whether it’s one or two hours, all those problems are gone. One time a week, two times a week, FTR gets to be their hero. If they were to die tomorrow, Anarchy in the Arena, they will be your heroes. #TopGuysOut!

The fans are fired up, just like The American Dragon & FTR! Will they and the Relentless Darby Allin tear down the corrupt Elite to save All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A very good Collision, but it always feels like things get so talkie. And that kinda happened here because this was the go home show. All the promos were well done, as they almost always are, but were also in many ways redundant. Well, mostly the Chris Jericho one, but I guess him taking up screentime is part of the gimmick now. Willow’s was really good, too, but I wouldn’t say that changed the go home math or anything. Edge’s promo after that awesome Fatal 4 was also good, and I suppose that’s the promo that matters since he is now turning the tables on Malakai. Edge naturally would want to lead the faction rather than join it, but again something feels very Edge & Judgment Day about this, not sure what happens here.

Storm’s promo certainly helps her ride that Tweener line. On one point, yeah, she’s right, tragedy in life doesn’t entitle anyone to anything outside of sympathy. But at the same time, she sure didn’t show any sympathy to Deeb’s tragedy. Deeb’s response was also good, the title match will be great stuff, but surely Storm retains. And I will say that we got a very good video package for Christian and Swerve, I just wish it wasn’t also on the night bogged down by other promos. The irony is, this video could’ve been on the Countdown to Double or Nothing special from last night, but I wouldn’t know because I didn’t watch it. There must be fans who do watch it if AEW keeps doing them. But it just feels like after five years, AEW would’ve figured out how to not make things feel redundant.

Great opening promo from Moxley with Callis, and good ambush from Takeshita. I thought that with Double or Nothing only giving us a Title Eliminator, Takeshita would still win and force something for Forbidden Door. Now I don’t know. Maybe Takeshita defies the math and wins with cheating, or they go outside the box and have Moxley get disqualified because he’s just that pissed. Great opening Six Man Tag right after, with Hiroshi Tanahashi being a great surprise. A great win for the Faces there, and there’s any number of possibilities for Forbidden Door, but surely Tanahashi will want a part of that card.

Great tag match of Gunns VS Lucha Bros, but I figured Lucha Bros would win to force the trios title match. Granted, still don’t see Death Triangle winning out, but it’ll be a great match. And also of course another match is added to the Buy-In, it’s what happens with all AEW PPVs. Great filler squash of Kyle beating KM, Kyle should definitely be waiting on the other side of Double or Nothing for a title match, and it’d be fitting continuity if he went for the TNT Championship after having his matches with Edge and the House of Black. A good filler match from Mariah and Leyla, with a good win for Mariah. It’d be a bit copy-paste from ROH making Athena & Billie Starkz a mentor-mentee champion duo, but what if Mariah tried for the TBS Championship before going for the world title?

And great main event Six Man Tag, but of course the Faces won. Very good closing promos from FTR, though Dax has used his spiel about doing this for us, the hardworking folks, before and it’s a bit redundant again. I still want this to turn into AEW Avengers: Endgame or whatever, but the way things are going, I would think Team AEW, aka the Faces, find a way to win to motivate Bucks VS FTR “One last time” and at All In 2024.

My Score: 8.7/10
