PLAY BY PLAY

Dustin Rhodes VS Malakai Black!

Naturally, the Natural wants revenge for what happened to his brother, Cody, as well as Arn Anderson, Brock Anderson and Lee Johnson. However, when seeking revenge, you dig two graves: one for your enemy, and one for yourself. Will one or both of those proverbial graves be filled tonight? Or will Malakai simply give Dustin two coins to pay the toll at the River Styx?

The bell rings and these two fire off! Malakai knees low, boots but Dustin comes back to rally with clotheslines! Atomic drop and a running kick knocks Malakai down, but he ROUNDHOUSES Dustin back! Dustin comes back to ROCK Malakai with an uppercut, then he CLAWS Malakai’s back! Dustin keeps Malakai caught in the corner and he fires off body shot after body shot. Malakai resists but Dustin still GERMAN SUPLEXES him out of the corner! Dustin drops an elbow, paces around, then drags Malakai up to throw him out. Dustin goes out after Malakai to ROCK him with another uppercut! The ref wants this back in the ring but Malakai goes to the timekeeper’s area.

Dustin stalks Malakai and reels him in, but Malakai shoves free to BOOT Dustin! BACK SUPLEX through the timekeeper’s table! Fans are fired up and losing their minds as Makalai paces about. Malakai goes back to the ring to leave Dustin behind, and while the ref checks on Dustin, Malakai exposes a buckle! Malakai goes after Dustin again with kicks then brings him around to KICK into the ring. Malakai throws hands, fans rally and duel as Dustin ends up in a corner. Malakai throws uppercuts, Dustin hits back with haymakers! Malakai knees low, whips but Dustin reverses. Malakai stops himself, sends Dustin into buckles but Dustin elbows him away.

Dustin runs but into a kitchen sink knee! Cover, TWO! Dustin gets to ropes but Malakai drags him away with a chinlock. Malakai grinds Dustin down but fans rally up. Dustin fights to his feet, throws body shots but Malakai drops to get a leg for a KNEEBAR! Dustin endures as Malakai also has a HEEL HOOK in it! Dustin reaches, fans fire up and Dustin gets the ropebreak! Malakai holds on, lets go as the ref counts 4, then stomps away on the legs. Malakai KICKS Dustin’s leg, Dustin hobbles but Malakai keeps after him. Dustin hits back with uppercuts but Malakai KICKS his leg out! Fans rally and duel as hard as ever, cover, TWO!

Malakai gets a leg but Dustin kicks him away. Malakai kicks Dustin to a corner, whips him corner to corner but the leg gives out! Fans boo but Malakai grins as he stalks over to Dustin. “Are you not entertained?” Fans are mixed again as Malakai toys with Dustin. Malakai kicks Dustin around but Dustin fires up! Dustin uppercuts, Malakai kicks the leg! Dustin blocks the next kick to shove and clothesline! Dustin rallies up again, kicks low and hits the Rhodes Uppercut! Malakai is against ropes, Dustin falls for a feint, but then Dustin dodges the Penalty Kick to get the POWERSLAM after all! Cover, TWO! Malakai is showing his toughness but Dustin fires the fans up.

Dustin gets Malakai up, reels him in and calls for the end, but his leg bothers him! Malakai back drops, Dustin sunset flips! TWO, and Dustin ROCKS Malakai with another uppercut! Malakai is in the corner, Dustin climbs up and rains down fists! Malakai slips out at 7 to KICK Dustin’s leg out! Malakai aims from a corner, RUNNING KNEE! Cover, TWO!! Dustin survives and infuriates Malakai! Malakai snarls as he goes out and looks under the ring. He brings out Cody Rhodes’ boot! The boot Cody took off and Malakai took away! Malakai throws it to Dustin and dares him to avenge his brother. Dustin picks up the boot, glares at Malakai, but doesn’t use it as he kicks Malakai low!

Malakai kicks back, Dustin kicks again, hits the Rhodes Uppercut again, and then whips Malakai to a corner. Malakai reverses but runs into another kick! DESTROYER from Dustin!! Cover, TWO!! Malakai survives again and Dustin can’t believe it! Fans tell Dustin, “You Still Got It!” but he has to end it! Dustin reels Malakai in, suplexes, but Malakai slips out and gets away. Dustin runs in and fires off more haymakers! Dustin headlocks but Malakai slips out of the bulldog! Dustin runs back in, Malakai sweeps the legs and Dustin hits the bare buckle with his head! BLACK MASS!! Cover, Malakai wins!

Winner: Malakai Black, by pinfall

Dustin kept true to his morals, but so did Malakai. It’s just that Malakai has immorals! Dustin is bleeding from the mouth and a glassy look in the eyes, has the Nightmare Family fallen?

 

The Lucha Brothers speak.

Rey Fenix says, “Finally! The best tag team in the universe are the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions!” Penta says in Spanish and Alex Abrahantes translates, “These championships cost us blood, sweat and tears. Anyone out there willing to suffer is welcome to try and take these from us.” Will any team in AEW find the courage to take on #CeroMiedo?

 

AEW hears from both Eddie Kingston and Miro.

“All Out. Biggest pay-per-view in history. Not just for AEW, but for all of professional wrestling. Me and you, Miro, we kicked it off, we started it off, and we went at it like two men are supposed to go at it. But then you go and use a low blow.” Anyone who knows anything about God knows that he has no favorites. That when it rains, it pours on the just and the unjust all the same. But the AEW TNT Champion recounts how Kingston said they’d walk through hell. Kingston can’t hurt a man as hot as Miro. Miro had to ice off his balls, too, Kingston. But he will offer Kingston’s broken bones to his bride and his soul to God. “This is the word of the Redeemer.” Are things far from done between the Mad King and the Best Man?

 

CM Punk is here!

The Best in the World was victorious in his return to action, and though this isn’t Chicago, Cincinnati is just as fired up to see him. And Punk is fired up to see Cincinnati! “We’re gonna get right to it, I’m gonna step all over your chanting. I wanna thank Darby Allin, and I wanna thank Sting, and I wanna thank all of you.” Punk comes out and won’t lie, he didn’t know if he had what it takes. But it’s like riding a violent bicycle! He’s back on the bike and wants to get in this ring again. Fans chant, “You Still Got It!” and he thanks them.

But guess what else we got? Karl Gotch trained Minoru Suzuki is in one hell of a main event that Punk as a wrestling fan will watch, “a local Cincinnati Maniac,” Jon Moxley take Suzuki on! And Punk also wants to say that Linda, who raised young Brian Pillman, is legitimately an angel. Fans cheer for Linda and Linda thanks them all for that. Punk says they’re “all about giving people their flowers here,” and notes that he saw Dark Side of the Ring and wants her and everyone to know that she is an angel and that we all appreciate her. Now who saw the PPV?! Fans all here cheer that. “Ruby Soho!” Fans of course cheer. “Adam Cole.” BAYBAY! “Bryan Danielson.” Fans all cheer “YES! YES! YES!”

Punk says the first person he texted as soon as he was out of the ring was his wife, April, and she said, “Baby, what’s next?” And Punk said, “I dunno.” Maybe Punk will leave it up to the fans. What is next for Punk? Fans seem to chant any number of names, but it sounds mostly like Moxley or Brian Pillman. But then Taz speaks up from commentary? Taz wants Punk to hear him out but fans boo. Punk says out of respect, they should let Taz speak. But also, don’t ever interrupt again! Taz says he is trying to be a gentleman, but Punk wants to be a tough guy so here’s the tough version. Taz has known Punk a real long time, and is tired of the BS love fest Punk’s putting on!

So while Punk was impressive in his one match with Darby, Taz wants to tell him this: “Don’t you ever mention out of your mouth any members of Team Taz that you wanna face. Don’t you ever do that.” Nobody was going on about Team Taz. Punk was just asking who fans wanted to see Punk face and the fans were saying Moxley and Pillman. But speaking of Team Taz, here comes Will Hobbs and Hook. Taz says Punk mentioned Team Taz on social media, interviews, radio spots, cuz Punk’s ass is everywhere right now! But don’t do it, Punk.

Punk laughs a bit and says since they have known each other and respects him, “Send Starks! Send Hook! Send me HOBBS!” And check it, all FOUR of them, “beat me if you can! Survive if I let you!” Punk just used Taz’s words against him, but will he have to watch out for the moment Team Taz takes him up on those words?

 

Santana and Ortiz speak.

Santana starts, “FTR, for the last few months, we sparked a new beginning within Santana and Ortiz. And after we beat them last week, now we’ve shifted our focus to the rest of this division. We climbing those ranks, we coming for that top spot, because everybody knows where we belong.” Ortiz says THEY’RE the best! So prove them wrong, boys!

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho.

Tony Schiavone says Soho won as the Joker in the Women’s Casino Battle Royal and has her title shot. Ruby gave an open challenge heading into tonight, and Britt Baker’s new pal, Jamie Hayter, accepted. Ruby says that she issued the challenge to make us see she didn’t just get lucky on Sunday. But Britt barges in with, “I would like to know why we’re wasting valuable TV time on the flavor of the week.” Britt says Ruby will become completely irrelevant after Hayter beats her tonight and after Britt retains her women’s world title.

Ruby says “Hello, Brittney. Nice to see you.” Ruby says these two have known each other a long time, because Ruby helped Britt break into the business. Which means Ruby knows what Britt is doing. Britt has given herself so many nicknames, from Role Model to Face of the Women’s Division to Ruby’s personal fav, “Baddest bitch on the block.” Britt says all this so that we don’t see what she’s not. Ruby says this is HER block now. Oh, well, what about the most epic nickname, AEW Women’s World Champion? And let’s talk about Ruby’s nickname, “Runaway.” Maybe Ruby should run away to catering where she’s been the last four years of her life!

Ruby gets heated but Hayter steps in. The match is coming, Britt has to rest from her title match. But Hayter will serve up plenty of whoop-ass, courtesy of Britt Baker, DMD. Team Doctor leaves and Ruby tells Schiavone that Britt may be his girl, but Ruby’s gonna whoop that girl’s ass. Will the Runaway run away with that title the first chance she gets?

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs VS Dante Martin!

There’s beef between Taz and Punk now, but #TownBidness has to focus on Angel Dorado. Will strength or speed win out here in Cincinnati? We find out, after the break.

AEW returns to the ring and Dante Martin makes his entrance. Dante slides into the ring, but Hobbs gets him right away with a waistlock! The bell rings and Hobbs hits a back suplex! Dante lands on his feet but Hobbs CLOBBERS him! Hobbs looms over Dante, drags him up with two hands and whips but Dante kicks and fires off forearms! Dante dodges, springboards, but Hobbs catches him! Dante slips out, shoves, but then ducks and dodges again to then jump up and over and shotgun dropkick Hobbs out! Fans fire up with Dante and he builds speed to DIVE! But Hobbs catches Dante and TOSSES him into the post! Hobbs snarls as the ref reprimands him.

Hobbs tells fans to shut up about Punk, then he drags Dante up to dig his face into the post! The ref counts, Hobbs lets off and talks more trash as he whips Dante into the railing! Dante falls and grits his teeth but Hobbs slaps him around. Hobbs mocks the CM Punk chants, then drags Dante up to whip him into railing again! Hobbs refreshes the count as AEW goes picture in picture.

Hobbs hauls Dante up again, TOSSES him into the ring through the ropes, then takes his time returning. Hobbs KICKS Dante in the side, smirks, but Dante throws body shots! Hobbs CLUBS Dante down and clamps on a chinlock for crossface forearms! Hobbs grins as he clobbers Dante again, then pushes him around. Dante gets up but Hobbs dead lift suplexes him! And stalls for 5 before he SLAMS Dante down! Hook cheers but fans don’t seem as supportive. Hobbs suplexes to SLAM Dante down again, then he drags Dante to a corner. Hobbs chokes Dante on the ropes but lets off as the ref counts. Dante sputters while Hobbs snarls and scowls.

Hobbs pushes Dante around, brings him up, and throws him down by his hair! Hobbs looms over Dante, hauls him up and reels him into a bearhug! Dante endures but Hobbs thrashes him around! AEW returns to single picture, Cincy rallies for Dante but Hobbs SLAMS him down! Hobbs chuckles before he drops a knee on Dante’s gut! Then into the ribs! Hobbs gets annoyed that fans cheer for Dante but Hobbs has some supporters. Hobbs drops his kneepad to then drop a knee right into Dante’s gut! Hobbs even pulls Dante into the knee by clinching his head. Dante endures so Hobbs hammers away with big fists!

Hobbs lets off just to soak up the heat, and then he mockingly says, “It’s clobbering time!” Hobbs CLUBS Dante, gets space, but Dante dodges the knee drop! Hobbs winces, Dante gets up and kicks and then basement tiger feints! Hobbs hobbles, Dante gets up in a corner and goes up top. Dante leaps for a BIG missile dropkick! Then a BIG senton! Cover, TWO! Dante’s hangtime didn’t keep Hobbs down but Dante keeps moving. BOOT against the ropes and Hobbs falls out of the ring! Dante builds speed but Hook blocks the way! Fans boo but Dante just sighs. And then goes again to FLY over Hook to wipe out Hobbs!

Fans fire up with Dante as he gets Hobbs up. Dante manages to get Hobbs into the ring despite the size difference, then he goes to the apron. Dante aims, ENZIGURI and Hobbs wobbles! Hobbs stands, Dante GAMANGIRIS! Dante slingshots and goes around to dodge Hobbs, then CALF KICK! Dante keeps moving, forearm smash! Dante goes corner to corner, but into a HUGE SPINEBUSTER!! Cover, Hobbs wins!

Winner: Will Hobbs, by pinfall

The Powerhouse didn’t even need to use Town Bidness, that spinebuster from the mountaintop was enough! Will Hobbs be using that same power to crush everyone on his way to the top, and CM Punk?

 

Dan Lambert and the Men of the Year are here!

But up in the nosebleeds again. Lambert sarcastically says, “Well congratulations to AEW on bringing in CM Punk. And Bryan Danielson and Ruby Soho and Adam Cole and every other skinny little dork that’s 5’9″ or shorter that Tony Conman can use to deflect the spotlight away from the truth. But that truth is a persistent little fellow. No matter how hard you try to cover it up, no matter what depths you will go to keep it buried, no matter how easy it is you think it is to hide it from these mindless Millennials that make up this fanbase, it will always be there to show its face.” Fans chant STFU at Lambert as he continues with his rant.

“You may think this company is the hottest thing going in the world of professional wrestling. And you may think that you can keep playing these idiots like a fiddle. Hell, you may even trick most of them into looking up the lyrics to one of the worst songs in the history of the world and watch as they sing it to the heavens.” Ethan Page laughs while Scorpio Sky pretends to dry heave. “But you will never be able to hide the truth for long. This company has two real men wrestling for it, and you’re looking at them right now!” Yes, he means Ethan & Scorpio. But together, they will scream the truth with the voices of a thousand.

So if any tough guys can shut them up, Lambert invites them to do so rather than later before the truth burns AEW to the ground and we don’t need to hear the chant of “A E Dub.” The gauntlet has been cast, who will pick it up to drink the tears of Lambert and his “real men,” All Ego & The Closer?

 

AEW hears from Matt Hardy and Orange Cassidy.

Big Money Matt says, “Orange Cassidy, you think you’re so cool when you run your fingers through your hair. I am going to take your hair! I am going to shave your head!” Chuck Taylor whispers something to Cassidy and Cassidy says, “Matt Hardy said he wants to cut my hair. Whatever.” Wait, are we going to have a Hair VS Hair match in AEW? Will Hardy put his money where his mouth is? Or will he go bald trying?

 

MJF and Wardlow are here!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman has a mic and he scowls as he goes to the ring. He has the music cut early as fans chant at him, “You Tapped Out!” MJF explains to the “potbelly pigs” that prior to Sunday, he beat “that stumbling shmuck, Chris Jericho, three times!” That is true, but then MJF says he won a fourth time, clean and smack dab in the middle of the ring! Well… “But after the bell was rung and my music was hit, my match was restarted due to extreme bias against me.” And there IS bias against MJF because everyone in the back wants to BE MJF. But he wouldn’t expect a bunch of people to understand what he’s saying, since they’re all from “Shitsinnati.”

Now obviously these fans are gonna get on Twitter and type in all caps that “OMG MJF THAT’S NOT FAIR!” Let him make this clear to the marks: MJF means every word he says when he says Cincinnati, Ohio “is the biggest dumpster fire in the world!” Fans boo harder but MJF says this is the Midwest because everything in here is “mid.” (So not great, for one) Skyline Chili, #MID! The Cincinnati Reds, who haven’t won a World Series since 1990, #MID! And every single person who lives here? #MID! Oh, got a problem with MJF now, Cincy? How about they do something? Like jump the guardrail like he can beat the crap out of everyone in here! Oh wait, they won’t, they’re all cowards.

And look what’s right up front! Ms. Linda, don’t you make eye contract, he’ll knock her teeth out! And that also goes for lil’ miss 16 & Pregnant right next to her! Let’s see, is Daddy the father of that child? Oh, sorry, Roseanne, you got something to say? Should MJF get closer? Sure, why not! What you got, Preggo? She tells MJF that she is daughter of Cincinnati’s own, “The Loose Cannon,” Brian Pillman! Fans fire up for that one! MJF says, “Well, that certainly would explain your vile looks, so…” But here comes her brother, Brian Pillman JUNIOR! Bulletproof is fired up for being home, too, but he’s also heading to the ring.

“Maxwell Jacob Friedman. Or should I say, Maxwell Jerkoff Friedman?” MJF doesn’t like that nickname but BPJ hears him talking trash about his hometown AND his family. Now, Max, we all know your good silver spoon upbringing. And MJF thinks where he’s from is the best place on earth. But BPJ says where he is from “is a place that breeds badasses!” Badasses like Brian Pillman Sr! Like Jon Moxley! MJF, you may be from luxurious Long Island, but BPJ is from the streets of Cincy, WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE! Fans are fired up for BPJ but MJF says, “Let me get this straight, Junior.” He thought it was a good idea to step to the mic with MJF? Yeah, real smart.

A real shame that BPJ’s mom, #Methanie- NOW BPJ rushes the ring! Wardlow stands guard but MJF says he meant to say Melanie. But it is a shame she couldn’t have birthed just about 500 other different second generation wrestlers, but unfortunately for MJF, she forgot to do to BPJ what she did to all the other prospects and swallow. Wardlow, sorry, but are you trying to help MJF like he did Sunday? Uh oh. MJF wants Wardlow to do him a solid and just stand in the corner and look pretty. MJF tells BPJ that if BPJ doesn’t get out of here right now, MJF will do to BPJ what Mama Pillman should’ve done to him 28 years ago and AB-

BPJ TACKLES MJF! And because Wardlow was told to stand aside, he lets it happen! BPJ fires off fists, but then Wardlow drags BPJ off to stop it before it gets too much. But then BPJ jukes him to stomp a mudhole into MJF! Wardlow waistlocks for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans boo but here comes Griff Garrison! But Wardlow CLOBBERS the Ivy League MVP, then feeds him to MJF’s Dynamite Diamond Ring PUNCH! Fans boo as the Varsity Blonds are down. MJF sits Griff up and aims that pinkie ring again. But BPJ jumps in to shield his friend and tag partner. Fans taunt MJF with, “You Tapped Out!” so MJF and Wardlow leave it at this. Is this far from done between the Salt of the Earth and Bulletproof Brian Pillman Jr?

 

Jon Moxley speaks.

“Minoru Suzuki. The most violent and sadistic wrestler in the history of Japan. The king of pro-wrestling, the King of Pancrase.” Maybe it’s just Moxley and where he’s from, but he never found Suzuki all that scary. Tonight, welcome to the jungle. “You gonna die~!”

 

Ruby Soho VS Jamie Hayter w/ Britt Baker & Rebel!

Things got personal backstage, but the Runaway will try to keep it business in the ring. Will Ruby run through the professional Hayter to get at her next destination?

The bell rings and Hayter tells fans to stop cheering for Ruby. Fans don’t care, they keep chanting for Ruby as she and Hayter circle. They tie up, Hayter shoves Ruby away but Ruby shrugs it off. They go again, Hayter puts Ruby in a corner, but the ref counts. Hayter lets off with a smack to Ruby’s cheek, but she smirks and goes right at Hayter. Ruby waistlocks, Hayter pries free to get a headlock, but Ruby throws body shots. Ruby powers out, Hayter runs her over! Things speed up, Ruby goes to hip toss but Hayter blocks. Hayter throws a body shot then goes to hip toss but Ruby blocks that to get the cording hold! Hayter goes to throw hands but Ruby cranks the arm!

Ruby throws forearms while Hayter is trapped, but Hayter pulls hair and whips free. Ruby rolls, comes back to block a kick and then KNEES Hayter back. Hayter ends up on ropes, Ruby runs in, but into a FLAPJACK HOTSHOT! Hayter throws Ruby hard into the bottom rope and Ruby sputters and gasps. Hayter KICKS Ruby then kicks her out of the ring as AEW goes picture in picture.

Hayter stalks after Ruby on the outside with Britt talking her up. Hayter gets Ruby up and brings her around the way to RAM into railing! Ruby grits her teeth and Britt talks trash while Hayter kicks and swipes at rowdy fans. Britt brings over a fan’s Ruby Soho sign, and Hayter takes it to rip it up! The ref has Britt and Rebel back off and Ruby throws hands on Hayter! Hayter CLUBS Ruby, gets her up and APRON BACK SUPLEXES! Hayter then makes sure the fan sees the torn pieces of their sign before soak up the heat. Hayter stalks Ruby and kicks her down, but Ruby throws body shots. Hayter CLUBS Ruby, Ruby throws body shots again then stomps a foot!

Ruby runs but into a SPINEBUSTER! Hayter rains down furious forearms then covers, TWO! Hayter argues the count but the ref says it was fair. Ruby gest to a corner, Hayter digs her boot in but lets off as the ref counts. Ruby sputters, Hayter argues with the ref again, then Hayter CLUBS Ruby again. Hayter bumps Ruby off buckles, then does it again but harder! And then again but harder still, having hit all three levels in the same corner. Hayter soaks up the heat and even eggs it on, and Britt gets a cheap shot in! Britt gets away with that before Hayter stomps a mudhole. AEW returns to single picture as Hayter whips Ruby corner to corner.

Hayter runs in but Ruby elbows her! Ruby goes up and hits DEADLY NIGHTSHADE! Fans fire up, Ruby goes side to side and YAKUZA KICKS Hayter in the back! Then the other way for another YAKUZA KICK! Then a third YAKUZA KICK! Fans fire up as Hayter staggers, but Hayter blocks the running Code Breaker! Hayter has Ruby rebound off ropes, only for Ruby to make that a TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO! Hayter survives and Britt is relieved but Ruby grits her teeth. Ruby drags Hayter around, wrenches but Hayter clubs free! Hayter holds off the saido with clubbing elbows, then Electric Chair lifts Ruby! Ruby fights that, leans back and POISON-RANA ADJACENT! Cover, TWO!

Ruby gets Hayter up to throw haymakers but Hayter cravats for a NECKBREAKER! Hayter gets Ruby up, fireman’s carries, and USHIGOROSHI! Then Hayter runs to SLIDING LARIAT! Cover, TWO!! Ruby survives and frustrates Team Doctor! Hayter fires up, runs but Ruby wrenches to the RIOTT KICK!! Cover, Ruby wins!

Winner: Ruby Soho, by pinfall

That destination came outta nowhere but now here comes Britt! She CLOBBERS Ruby, and Rebel just laughs and shouts at Ruby as Britt gets her up, FISHERMAN SCREW! But here comes RIHO! Riho DECKS Rebel, ROCKS Britt, but Hayter hits a BACKBREAKER! Hayter drags Ruby over to line her up, but here comes KRIS STATLANDER! And Statlander has a CHAIR! The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien runs off Britt, Rebel and Hayter, but will Britt have to worry about all her enemies coming for her soon enough?

 

AEW hears from Brian Cage and Ricky Starks.

“Ricky, Ricky, Ricky. Aren’t you sick and tired of this?” Yes, Starks IS sick and tired of this, Cage. Last week, knocking him in the head, Starks thought Cage finally got some common sense. But Cage says to cut the crap. One on one, mano a mano, they’re settling this! And that is when The Machine will learn why they call Ricky #Absolute! But will the FTW Championship be back on the line with this grudge match?

 

Six Man Tag: The Pinnacle w/ Tully Blanchard VS The Dark Order!

Shawn Spears and FTR are united, and even have Wardlow with them now. Meanwhile, Evil Uno just faced Alan Angels on Dark and may have only made the dysfunction in the group grow. Anna Jay put them all on notice, can Uno, Stu and Johnny Hungy make it work to face a team no one likes?

The trios sort out and Silver starts with the Chairman, only for Stu to tag right in. Stu and Spears circle but then Silver tags back in! Spears chuckles as he and Silver circle now, and they tie up. Spears headlocks, Silver powers out but Spears runs him over. Spears flexes then shows off the dancing pecs. Silver scoops and SLAMS Spears! Things speed up, Silver runs Spears over and then flexes! Fans fire up, Silver brings Spears over, but he hesitates to even reach out to Uno. Silver tags Stu, they mug Spears, then Stu wrenches. Spears throws a haymaker then tags Cash Wheeler. Pinnacle mugs Stu, Cash CLOBBERS Stu with a clothesline!

Cash tags Spears back in, they mug Stu more, and then Spears back suplexes. Stu lands on his feet to dodge then PELE! Stu tags Uno, Uno gets Spears up, Stu springboards, ELBOSW DROP SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! FTR was ready but they stand down. Uno whips Spears into a corner, then holds out a hand. Silver is again reluctant but he tags in. Uno whips Spears into the corner, Silver and Stu DOUBLE KICK Spears down! Silver feeds Spears to Uno’s BOOT, and maybe the Dark Order is fine. Cover, TWO! Silver keeps on Spears with a facelock but Spears jawbreakers free! Tag to Dax Harwood and he CHOPS Silver against ropes then throws uppercuts!

Dax snapmares, drops leg, elbow and headbutt! Cover, TWO! Cover again, TWO! Another cover, TWO! Dax flips Uno off so Uno gets in, but the ref keeps Uno back. Cash gets a cheap shot on Silver, then Dax eggs fans on. Dax drags Silver up, puts him in the corner but Silver fights out of the corner! Dax kicks low, reels Silver in, but Silver snap suplexes first! Fans fire up and Silver crawls, but The Pinnacle takes out the Dark Order! Spears grins as he flips Silver off. Silver still fights the Pinnacle with big shots! Silver KICKS away on Dax, then runs to BOOT Dax in the back, to a GERMAN! Bridging cover, TWO!!

Silver looks around, Spears talks smack but runs away. Dax whips Silver then drops down, sending Silver into Uno! Dax gets Silver up, SLINGSHOT SUPLEX! The Dark Order tries to sort things out as Dax tags Cash and Cash tags Spears. BIG RIG into the C4!! Cover, The Pinnacle wins!

Winners: The Pinnacle, by pinfall

Number 4 got hit with Spears’ powerful Death Valley, and now the Dark Order is left wallowing in their own frustrations! Uno drags Silver up and gets in his face about the collision! Everyone understands what happens except Uno and that pisses Silver off. Silver SHOVES Uno down, Stu CLOBBERS Silver! Angels SPEARS Stu! Vance and Cabana try to stop this from happening but they also start shoving each other! It seems the line has been drawn between the boys, but here come the ladies! Anna Jay & Tay Conti cannot believe this is happening, and Stu tries to apologize. Conti keeps Jay from stepping close, is Dark Order (not) fine?

 

AEW recaps the Women’s Casino Battle Royal.

Speaking of Anna Jay & Tay Conti, they note their “deeper issues” with The Bunny & Penelope Ford. But Bunny Allie is the one calling Jay & Tay the psychopaths! But #TayJay is back bit- Wait, hold on. Jade Cargill has Mark Sterling defend that her top level performance was dominant, but also educational. “Don’t trust none of these bitches!” But Nyla Rose says that actions speak louder than words, and her actions spoke the loudest, proving she is STILL the most dominant force in AEW. Thunder Rosa says she is rather heartbroken, because she was so close and yet so far. But Rosa never gives up, and she will get what she deserves. Who will be poised for a title shot after Baker VS Soho?

 

Tully Blanchard speaks.

He just wants to say that this is a flashback moment for him. He left the ring with three stars having demolished the other team. Then we look over at Darby Allin, Sting, people from past and present, “and that’s what leadership was! You people just watched leadership!” Meanwhile, Sting is just trying to live off of someone else again. Y’know what? Tully promises to put an end to that. He wants Tony Khan to make this for next week: Shawn Spears VS Darby Allin! Then there will come a time when it’s Tully VS Sting one more time. A lot of big words from the Four Horseman, but will his blast from the past come back to bite him in the butt?

 

Sammy Guevara is here!

And he has cue cards! He has them for picture in picture: “Every Summer has a story. Summer 2021 had some damn good ones! At All Out… Jericho DESTROYED Max! In Pittsburgh… Fuego became ALL ELITE! In Houston… Pam said ‘YES!’ While Summer may be coming to an end… the good times are far from over! The Inner Circle WILL stay on top! Fuego WILL make his mark! And I’ll keep getting those views!” Sammy plugs #Vlogcrew but what must-see moment happens next for the Spanish God?

 

The Elite head to the ring!

The Young Bucks lead the way but are moving slow from how beat up they are after the epic Steel Cage match where they also lost the AEW World Tag Team Championships. The Good Brothers are still Impact World Tag Team Champions, though. And given how Brandon Cutler is all smiles, Michael Nakazawa is carrying the belt around and Don Callis is feeling good, of course Kenny Omega is still THE AEW World Champion. Tony Schiavone says there’s a lot of gold in this group but then Callis takes over the interview. Callis says it is a pleasure to be here on the night the fans voted NUMBER ONE in the Pro-Wresting Illustrated 500! Thanks for the votes and money.

At All Out, it was all about The Elite! It was about Kenny Omega proving exactly why he IS the greatest in this industry. And it was all about the Bucks providing the fans with the memory that is the greatest tag team match ever! And in the course of that, the belts were STOLEN! But don’t worry, they’ve got a plan. Callis lets Nick explain, and Nick says that “Speaking of getting things back… We got our best friend back!!” Ladies and gentlemen, the “newest” member of The Elite, ADAM COLE~! Cole makes his entrance and he joins everyone in the ring for a group “ADAM COLE, BAYBAY!” Nick hands the mic over to Cole and Cole takes a moment to enjoy the fans chanting.

“Who’s ready for story-time with Adam Cole, baybay? But first of all…” Cole steps to Schiavone and says that he knows Schiavone is really “close” with Britt. But Cole swears that if Schiavone even looks at her the wrong way, he “will slap those stupid glasses of your face and whoop your ass, you understand me?” Now get out of the ring! NOW, nerd! Hurry up, you nerd! Can he go any slower?! GO! Cole has talking to do so step down, nerd. Schiavone does leave and Cole continues. “All Elite Wrestling. The greatest professional wrestling in the entire world! And do you wanna know what that is? It’s because of the guys in the ring right now.”

This very ring, the ropes, the stage, anyone who bought tickets, is all thanks to THE Elite! Cole knows he’s new here, but he’s been Elite for a very, very long time. For nearly 14 years, Cole has main evented, won world championships and shown he is a once in a generation professional wrestler. Now, Cole is with the very best! The Bucks are the greatest tag team of all time! Kenny Omega is a once in a lifetime professional wrestler and the AEW World Championship proves that! Now the Elite has Adam Cole Baybay. We should all be thanking Omega! Thanking the Bucks! Thanking THEM! The Elite is COMPLETE, baybay!

And if you don’t believe him, just wait until next week and Cole’s in-ring debut. After Cole proves to the world how good he really is, we’ll see just how Elite he really is. Omega says that sounds like cause for celebration. As much as he’d love to celebrate with the fans, there’s one thing Omega really, really despises: interruptions. At the PPV, they were so unceremoniously– Oh, there’s Flight of the Valkyrie again! Because here comes BRYAN DANIELSON! The American Dragon goes right to the ring but Omega has the music cut off. This was supposed to be THE ELITE’S moment. Omega has the others give him “the room” for a second so he can talk to their guest.

Hey, Bryan. It’s just them. Step on in to the squared circle. Fans cheer as Bryan gets in and stares down with Omega. Honestly speaking, Bryan is just the guy Omega wanted to talk with. Omega wants to cut to brass tax, but Bryan snatches the mic. “Quick question. Do you guys wanna see Bryan Danielson fight Kenny Omega?” “YES! YES! YES!” Well Omega is saying it doesn’t work like that here? So then wait, Omega’s the greatest wrestler to ever live, right? He says everyone’s not on his level! But Bryan just thinks Omega is afraid to take the match because he knows Bryan is better than him, and that he will kick Omega’s head in, and that Omega is NOT on Bryan’s level!

Omega takes off his fancy suit jacket and swings on Bryan! But into a takedown! YES LOCK!! Omega is tapping out!! But the Elite attack Bryan right away! They stomp Bryan and drag Omega to safety, but here come Christian Cage, Frankie Kazarian and Jurassic Express! They even the numbers just like at the end of All Out! And just like All Out, the Elite bail out of the ring! But this time, Luchasaurus picks up Marko Stunt to TOSS him! Fun Size takes out the Bucks! Jungle Boy FLIES to take out the Good Brothers! The Elite Hunter gets Cole with a leg drop! Cutler scurries but he is trapped like the rat he is! And no one is coming to save him! Bryan hits the RUNNING KNEE on Cutler!!

Fans are thunderous as the Yes Movement comes to AEW! Will he and the enemies of the Elite unite to finally shut down all those egos?

 

AEW has BIG news for Dynamite: Grand Slam!

After seeing how Malakai Black tore through the rest of the Nightmare Family, Cody Rhodes is on his way back! Will the American Nightmare be at 100% to avenge friends and brother? Or will he still fight even if he’s the walking wounded?

 

Jon Moxley VS Minoru Suzuki!

The Maniac is home and Cincinnati is happy to have him! But at the same time, the Meanest Man in the World makes his AEW Dynamite debut! Will these two be lonely warriors tonight as they revive their feud from NJPW? And who walks out of here as the king of the jungle?

The bell rings and fans are thunderous as the two stare down. Moxley and Suzuki talk trash and dare the other to do something, but Suzuki forearms first. “This is Awesome!” already because it’s finally happening again! Moxley winds up to forearm Suzuki! Suzuki grins and forearms back. Moxley checks his chin, forearms back and now the forearms fly faster and faster. Fans are fired up as they go back and forth. Suzuki ROCKS Moxley, Moxley ROCKS Suzuki, but Suzuki laughs and runs. Suzuki BOOTS Moxley, Moxley comes back to BOOT Suzuki! Both men share a laugh and the fans are fired up even more.

Suzuki fires off fast hands, palm strikes and body shots! But Moxley ROCKS Suzuki! And then spins to ROLLING ELBOW! Suzuki staggers into ropes but Moxley gets him up to pull him against the ropes. Moxley pulls on Suzuki’s nose, the ref counts and Moxley lets go as fans chant, “F him up, Moxley, F him up!” Moxley goes after Suzuki again in picture in picture, but Suzuki turns that into a DRAPING ARMBAR! The ref counts and reprimands, Suzuki lets go at 4 and then drags Moxley out to wrench and wrap his arm around the post! The ref counts and reprimands again, Suzuki lets off to wrench and wrap Moxley’s arm around the other post.

The ref counts, Suzuki SLAMS Moxley’s arm into the post, Moxley clutches his wrist but Suzuki stomps him down. The ref starts a ring count, Suzuki kicks Moxley around then gets in the ring. Suzuki waits on Moxley as the count climbs, but Moxley gets in at 5 of 10. Suzuki stomps Moxley, drags him around by the bad arm and wrenches it to have a wristlock. Suzuki bends finger to elbow to shoulder for a KIMURA! Moxley endures as Suzuki leans into the hold. Fans rally, Suzuki shifts and SLAMS the arm on the mat. Moxley gets up in anger but leans on the ropes as he clutches that arm. Suzuki toys with Moxley and slaps him around!

Suzuki brings Moxley around and slaps him more. Moxley CHOPS back! Suzuki likes that but Moxley CHOPS him again! And again! Suzuki kicks low and then eggs Moxley on. Moxley gets up so Suzuki BOOTS him into a corner! Suzuki claps, the fans rally up and Suzuki goes corner to corner, into Moxley’s LARIAT! Moxley gets Suzuki up and suplexes high and hard! Cover, TWO! AEW returns to single picture as Suzuki goes to a corner. Moxley storms over to CHOP him again. Moxley whips corner to corner, fans hope they “Fight Forever!” but this show’s almost over! Suzuki reverses the whip to then BOOT Moxley in the corner!

Suzuki snapmares Moxley, runs and PENALTY KICK, but Moxley blocks it! Moxley CLUBS the leg, BITES Suzuki’s forehead, then lets off as the ref counts. Suzuki staggers about but comes back to BITE Moxley! The ref counts, Moxley HEADBUTTS! Suzuki HEADBUTTS back! Moxley wobbles but he HEADBUTTS again! Suzuki HEADBUTTS, Moxley HEADBUTTS, then they DOUBLE HEADBUTT! Both men fall over and fans are fired up! A standing count starts but both men are up at 3. “This is Awesome!” as they fire off SLAPS and forearms! The two stand, the forearms keep flying, and Suzuki ROCKS Moxley!

Suzuki ROCKS Moxley again, but Moxley fires up to LARIAT! Suzuki stays up to forearm, then he catches Moxley for a SLEEPER! Spin around and Gotch hold, but Moxley fights the piledriver with a back drop! Suzuki pops up but into a kick, PARADIGM SHIFT!! But Moxley isn’t done, he runs, Suzuki is bleeding from his eyebrow, and Moxley LARIATS him back down! Cover, ONE?!?! Moxley can’t believe that but Suzuki stands up. Moxley runs and LARIATS again, but Suzuki stays up on the power of rage! Moxley runs again, LARIATS, but Suzuki fights gravity with all his fighting spirit! Moxley runs again but Suzuki DROPKICKS him down!

Suzuki enjoys the blood from his own forehead as he wraps on the SLEEPER! Moxley slips free and ROCKS Suzuki with a haymaker! And then DECKS Suzuki with another! Moxley hauls Suzuki up into the underhooks, for a DEATH RIDER!! Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

The Cincy Maniac just made the ring red with Suzuki’s eyebrow blood, and now he gets to celebrate his triumphant homecoming! And as such, he goes out to the crowd to party with his people! Will this win be a big reason Moxley gets another shot at the AEW World Championship? Or at least get the attention of more NJPW stars for him to Strong Style brawl with?


My Thoughts:

Another great episode of AEW here, especially for following certainly one of the best AEW PPV’s. Opening with Dustin VS Malakai was a great choice, and it was a very good match. It also had great character work similar to Malakai VS Johnson, but I feel like it’s more of a rip that we’re just being told Dynamite Grand Slam has Cody VS Malakai instead of Cody doing a very heroic rescue of Dustin as his return. And it would actually be a great move if Malakai still won, so that Cody can shrug off the feelings of “Cody Wins LOL” some already criticize him for. Malakai needs to build and build until he’s taking on a champion, whoever that might be.

Speaking of champions, I like that we got a promo from Miro and Kingston, and I would love to see a rematch of those two where rules are thrown out the window. I don’t know if Kingston wins that, Miro is just that good right now. But Miro VS Malakai could be a thing, and what a great dynamic of Miro having his delusions and Malakai being about shattering arrogance as a story building to a great showdown. CM Punk had a very good promo segment, even if it was weird for Taz to just get attitude with him to set things up. Starks and Cage had a good promo video, their rematch is going to be great, Punk VS Starks should happen after that, FTW Championship completely optional in all that.

I really like that we got what I’ve said should be happening on Dark and Elevation tapings, in that we segue smoothly from one wrestler being ringside for some other reason to having their match right up next. Hobbs goes from trying to intimidate Punk to having a very good match with Dante Martin. Hobbs of course wins here so he can go towards a match with Punk with momentum. We got a slightly less cringe inducing promo from Lambert and his reverse psychology, but I have no idea why Archer isn’t just hunting these guys. It is clever that Lambert and his guys are in the nosebleeds so that they’re so far away from the ring, but we should get promos of Archer getting mad about that.

Nice quick plug for the next phase of Hardy VS Cassidy, and I really do like the idea of Hair VS Hair as a way to go about this. Hardy being shaved bald or even Cassidy being shaved bald could give both guys something fresh to work with. Though to be fair, Cassidy is so chill, a new haircut isn’t much of anything so this has to be coming around to “hurt” Hardy. MJF’s promo segment, just with everything he had to work with to get the fans pissed at him, that is the evil genius of his Heel persona. BPJ got to step up for his family and his town, and I really do like the idea that The Pinnacle as a whole is perhaps moving on from Inner Circle to these other young stars. MJF VS BPJ should get just as heated as MJF has made any other feud he’s been in.

Really good promos from Lucha Brothers and Santana & Ortiz, I am hoping those teams face off for the next tag title feud. Ruby Soho had a really good promo segment with Britt and her team, then had a really good match with Hayter. Riho and Statlander coming to Ruby’s rescue was nice stuff. Both Riho and Statlander have had beef with Britt so there’s continuity, and it seems we’re getting a big Six Woman Tag. Speaking of trios, got a good Six Man out of Pinnacle VS Dark Order, with great advancement in that Dark Order Civil War story. Tully was a bit stumbling in calling out Sting and Darby but again, I like that Pinnacle gets to move on to other stories.

The Elite had a great group promo allowing Adam Cole to have his Dynamite debut, and of course Bryan and the others come out to counteract things. Omega VS Bryan is definitely next, but we can get a lot of great stuff out of The Elite VS the various Elite Hunters, not just Kazarian but also the Jurassic Express and Christian. How about THAT be a Blood & Guts? Bucks, Good Brothers and Cole VS JB, Luchasaurus, Marko, Kaz and Christian, while we also get Omega VS Bryan on the same night. Maybe for the Dynamite Anniversary in October? Now THAT is a “season three premiere” to remember.

And of course, we got a great main event in Mox VS Suzuki, those two are a perfect combo. Moxley won because duh, AEW lets hometown heroes win. Should Kingston not dethrone Miro, and they wait on Miro VS Malakai, give me Miro VS Moxley! Miro and Moxley are their own brands of crazy, those two going head to head will be a lot of fun.

My Score: 9.2/10

AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

Like many of us, The Aerial Assassin despise the Wolf of Wrestling for how he disrespected and used Daniel Garcia just to send a message. But also like many, Ospreay at least acknowledges and respects that this form of Maxwell Jacob Friedman is his most dangerous. Will Ospreay be able to put down AEW’s Ultimate Scumbag? Or will even the #BillyGOAT not be on the level of the devil?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who ignites episode 250!

The bell rings and the fans cheer while the two stare down. Ospreay gets the fans even more fired up, and then MJF bails out. The fans boo but MJF just hops the railing. MJF splashes fans with their own water! MJF then lounges on the barriers, offers a fist bump, but the fans just flip him off. So MJF rips a fan’s sign up and throws it back! MJF goes back to the ring, tells fans to shut up, and he approaches Ospreay. Only to dodge and strut, then swivel the hips. The fans boo but Ospreay smirks, this is the MJF he knew he was getting. They tie up, MJF wrenches to hammerlock, but Ospreay headlocks.

MJF powers up to wrench and WRING Ospreay, but Ospreay handsprings through, and copies the strut! Ospreay shows he can swivel hips, too! The fans cheer but MJF sarcastically says Ospreay’s clever. The two tie up, MJF headlocks, but the fans sing, “OSPRAEY~ OSPREAY OSPREAY OSPREAY~!” MJF is annoyed, Ospreay powers up and out, then things speed up. Ospreay hurdles then drops down to trip MJF up! MJF ducks the Hidden Blade to hit a headlock takeover! Ospreay headscissors, MJF kips free, and roles reverse as Ospreay headlocks for the takeover. MJF headscissors but Ospreay kips free.

MJF ducks the Penalty Kick, avoids the standing moonsault, then bobs ‘n’ weaves to avoid Ospreay’s punches and kicks. MJF shoves Ospreay, Ospreay springboards but MJF avoids that, too! MJF runs in, Ospreay dodges to handspring, but MJF gets under! Ospreay superhero lands, and the fans are thunderous while MJF is stunned! The fans cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for making this the opener! MJF is annoyed, but he and Ospreay tie up. MJF says Ospreay pulled hair! The fans boo because of course MJF is lying. MJF and Ospreay reset, tie up, and again MJF claims hair pulling. But then MJF pulls hair!

MJF puts Ospreay on the ropes, the ref counts, and MJF lets off, to take a swing! Ospreay dodges and then LARIATS MJF up and out! The fans fire up and Ospreay builds speed, only for MJF to get away. MJF says not today, but then Ospreay just changes course and he FLIES out onto MJF! The fans fire up and high-five Ospreay before he puts MJF in. Ospreay HOTSHOTS MJF, runs and BOOTS, then he hits as BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Ospreay prepares the elbow and the fans fire up. Ospreay aims but MJF scrambles to the apron. The fans boo, Ospreay storms over, but MJF YANKS Ospreay into buckles!

MJF stomps a mudhole in, drags Ospreay up to whip and WRING him into the corner! Ospreay flounders and MJF soaks up the heat. Then he blows snot at the fans and mocks them! MJF goes back to Ospreay, clamps onto an arm, and the fans rally and duel as Ospreay endures. Ospreay fights up, throws body shots, then forearms. MJF throws Ospreay down by his hair! The fans boo but MJF just soaks it up. MJF says he didn’t do anything. Then he clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Ospreay down. Ospreay fights up to JAWBREAKER free! Ospreay runs but MJF kitchen sink knees! MJF hauls Ospreay up to back suplex, but Ospreay lands out!

Ospreay reels MJF in to back suplex, but MJF lands out! MJF back suplexes, Ospreay lands out, into a STUNNER! Cover, TWO! MJF’s annoyed his Osaka Street Cutter, or perhaps Long Island Street Cutter, didn’t end this, but he storms after Ospreay. Ospreay is on the apron, MJF reels him in, HEAT- NO! Ospreay shoves MJF away, but MJF slingshots Ospreay into another STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and MJF is frustrated. The fans rally for Ospreay as he goes to the apron, but MJF storms over. MJF drags Ospreay in again, tries but Ospreay again denies him the Heatseeker! So MJF tries the slingshot, but Ospreay stops that!

Ospreay GAMANGIRIS MJF away, goes up a corner, and PIP PIP CHEERIO! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Ospreay rises but so does MJF. Ospreay fires haymakers on MJF first, then whips. MJF reverses but Ospreay CLOBBERS him! MJF bails out but Ospreay builds speed! Ospreay handsprings to SASUKE SPECIAL! The fans are thunderous but Ospreay takes a moment to check his ribs and catch his breath. Ospreay storms up on MJF, puts him in the ring, then goes up a corner. The fans fire up for the MOONSAULT, but MJF moves! Ospreay lands out, MOONSAULTS again, but MJF dodges again!

But the STANDING SHOOTING STAR hits! Cover, TWO! So Ospreay goes up and up to SKY TWISTER! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives the onslaught but Ospreay loads up that elbow! “This is Awesome!” as Ospreay aims again. MJF slowly rises, Ospreay runs up, but MJF bails out again! The fans continue to boo but Ospreay PLANCHAS! Down goes MJF and Ospreay high-fives more fans. And then Ospreay confiscates the timekeeper’s table! The fans are thunderous as Ospreay brings the furniture over to ringside. MJF hurries away into the ring now! Ospreay pursues as we see the fear on MJF’s face.

Ospreay CHOPS MJF in the corner! Ospreay stands MJF up to CHOP him again! The fans “WOO~” and Ospreay runs, but MJF pops him up to SUPERKICK him! MJF goes up, but Ospreay avoids the Panama City/Long Island Sunrise, but then MJF knees low! MJF reels Ospreay in but Ospreay powers out. Ospreay whips MJF to the corner, MJF goes up and over, but then MJF’s knee jams! Ospreay grabs that leg but it was a trap! MJF steps over and hits as STUFF PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and both men are down again. The fans rally up while both men stir, and MJF rises first.

MJF shows off that the leg is just fine, then does the Daniel Garcia dance just to mock him. MJF then drops an elbow on Ospreay’s leg. Ospreay CLUBS at MJF but MJF keeps the toehold. Ospreay fishhooks MJF and MJF lets go. Ospreay CHOPS, and CHOPS, then runs, but into a back drop! MJF leans on the ropes while he catches his breath, and the fans rally again. MJF storms back over, KNEES the leg, then smirks. MJF steps through, ties the legs up, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~,” even as MJF SLAPS Ospreay! And SLAPS him! MJF thrashes the hold, but Ospreay endures. Ospreay’s shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up!

Ospreay pries at the leglock, and the fans rally up as he works to turn things over. MJF fights that back, thrashes some more, but Ospreay grits his teeth. The fans rally harder and harder as Ospreay fights his way over, and he turns the hold onto MJF! MJF endures now, reaches out while shouting in pain, and he flails in order to turn things back onto Ospreay! The fans boo but Ospreay endures again. Ospreay drags MJF along, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts but MJF lets go at 4. MJF is frustrated but then he drags Ospreay up and to a corner. MJF CHOPS, takes a moment, then CHOPS again!

MJF wrenches, whips, but Ospreay can’t even make it all the way! MJF smirks while the ref checks Ospreay. Ospreay shakes out the leg, refusing to admit defeat. MJF storms over, stands Ospreay up, and CHOPS! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s back! MJF whips, Ospreay barely makes it to ropes! MJF wants after Ospreay like a shark with blood in the water, but Ospreay sits on the apron. MJF tells off the fans cheering Ospreay, but Ospreay is somehow still in this. So MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s face! The fans boo but MJF soaks it up. Ospreay throws body shots and haymakers! Ospreay CHOPS and MJF wobbles!

Ospreay CHOPS again, MJF flails more. Ospreay snarls, runs, but MJF CHOP BLOCKS the legs! MJF covers, TWO! MJF frowns but he stomps Ospreay’s leg. MJF then stands Ospreay up to CLUB him on the neck! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS his back! Ospreay fires big forearms! Then he fires Kawada Kicks! MJF wobbles, into a CHOP! MJF goes to ropes, Ospreay scoops him, but MJF CLAWS the eyes again! The ref reprimands and counts, MJF stops at 4. The fans boo but MJF whips. Ospreay ducks ‘n’ dodges, and DOUBLE LARIATS take both men down! The fans fire up again while Ospreay again clutches the leg.

Ospreay rises, but MJF KNEES the knee! Then MJF calls his shot! MJF suplexes, but STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE hits first! MJF wobbles around, Ospreay calls his shot now! Springboard, OSCUTTER!! But MJF flops all the way to ropes! Ospreay has to crawl his way over, and MJF flops to the floor! MJF’s ring awareness is strong but Ospreay pursues. Ospreay drags MJF up to put him in the ring, and then onto the apron. Ospreay uses a corner to go up and APRON OSCUTTER FLOP as MJF steps back! Ospreay writhes, signaling to his arm, and the ref hurries to check. MJF may have gotten lucky here, as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref has Ospreay go around the way but MJF is in pursuit! MJF shows no mercy as he grabs that bad arm, and RAMS Ospreay into steel steps! MJF stands on the steps to soak up all the heat, as well as talk some trash on Ospreay. It’s certainly in the vain of MJF is who AEW needs, not Ospreay. MJF drags Ospreay up and into the ring, then takes his time to taunt fans over the table. He flips the fans off, he isn’t gonna do what they want. MJF then goes back to Ospreay, grabs the bad arm, and he stands on it, to then STOMP it! MJF soaks up more heat as he paces around Ospreay, then clamps onto the arm again.

Ospreay endures the mounted armlock, and he fights to his feet. Now Ospreay pulls hair, but MJF throws Ospreay down by the arm. MJF grinds that shoulder but Ospreay still endures. The fans rally as Ospreay fights, stands up, and throws body shots. Dynamite returns to single picture as Ospreay ROCKS MJF with forearms. Ospreay whips, MJF reverses but Ospreay handsprings, only for MJF to KICK the bad arm! Ospreay clutches the elbow, but MJF hauls him up! Double underhooks, for a SHOULDER BUSTER! And then it’s back to the armlock! Ospreay rolls through, but MJF ducks the roundhouse to pump handle!

MJF adds a half nelson, MADE IN JAPAN! Or perhaps, Made in Long Island? Cover, TWO!! Ospreay knows that move from his rivalry with Shingo Takagi. The fans rally while both men are down again, “This is Awesome!” Ospreay and MJF slowly rise, MJF storms over, and he whips. Ospreay holds ropes to stop that, so MJF CLUBS the arm! MJF makes the pecs dance, whips again, but Ospreay reverses. Ospreay then dodges MJF to handspring and NEURALIZER KICK! Both men are down again and the fans stay fired up! Ospreay sits up first, then both men stand. Ospreay BOOTS MJF’s haymaker to then ENZIGIRI!

MJF wobbles, Ospreay wrenches an arm, and Ospreay CHOPS MJF off his feet! Ospreay drags MJF up to wrench and CHOP him down again! Ospreay stands MJF one more time, to CHOP, CHOP, and- NO, MJF blocks the chop! MJF WRINGS the arm, Ospreay cartwheels through! ENZIGIRI! Torture rack, TOWER HACKER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives and the fans can’t believe it! The fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but there’s still more show that has to happen! MJF crawls to the apron, Ospreay stalks him. MJF flops to the floor, but he’s near that table… Ospreay goes to the floor and brings MJF up.

MJF throat chops Ospreay! MJF runs away into the crowd, but Ospreay pursues! Ospreay fires hands on MJF even as MJF goes up the bleachers. Ospreay grabs MJF, bends him against railing, and offers free shots. A little girl starts punching MJF in the ribs! MJF flips her family off but Ospreay CLUBS away on MJF! Ospreay fist bumps the girl and drags MJF back up. Ospreay ROCKS MJF with a right and follows him down the stairs. Ospreay CHOPS MJF to keep him moving, but MJF takes a detour into the seats. So Ospreay makes MJF take a seat and punches down hands! The fans count along, Ospreay winds up, and hits TEN!

MJF flounders around, Ospreay shows that there’s one guy still wearing an MJF Kangaroo Kick shirt, and then pursues MJF. MJF pokes Ospreay right in the eyes! MJF CLUBS Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks MJF! Ospreay SMACKS MJF off the trash can! The fans fire up and Ospreay DUMPS MJF into the trash can! MJF kicks and flails but Ospreay BOOTS the can! MJF falls out, stumbles away, and Ospreay pursues. They finally return to ringside, and Ospreay refreshes the count that was never happening anyway. Ospreay then drags MJF over to the table, punches him onto it, then goes up the steel steps.

Ospreay then goes up the corner and fans are thunderous already! Ospreay aims, but MJF hurries off the table. The fans boo and Ospreay sighs, but Ospreay hops down to go after MJF. But MJF gut wrenches! Ospreay victory rolls, TWO! MJF has the victory roll, TWO! Ospreay has it, TWO! MJF is up, Ospreay gets around and hops on, POISON-RANA! MJF flounders to a corner, Ospreay runs up, but MJF pops him up! Another SUPERKICK as Ospreay is upside-down! MJF goes up, LONG ISLAND SUNRISE!! Cover, TWO!?! The fans are electric as Ospreay survives another hard shot! Ospreay then goes to the apron and then the floor.

MJF pursues, and we return to the table. MJF puts Ospreay on the table and then goes up the apron. The fans rally as MJF actually climbs the corner. MJF reaches the top, but then Ospreay slips off the table! The fans still boo, they want that table to see some action. MJF hops down, talks smack on Ospreay, then CHOPS him. MJF BITES Ospreay’s arm! The fans boo and tell MJF he’s sick! The ref counts, MJF lets off, but he then ROCKS Ospreay with a haymaker. MJF again mocks Daniel Garcia, even asking if Garcia has feeling in his arms again. MJF then whips Ospreay hard into railing! Ospreay almost ends up in the front row!

MJF makes Ospreay take a seat, and he CLAWS at Ospreay’s face! MJF refreshes the ring count, then runs in at Ospreay, to BOOT Ospreay against railing! MJF hops up to soak up more heat, then he refreshes with some water. That he then splashes at fans. MJF stalks Ospreay back to the table, refreshes the count, and then asks, “Ospreay who?” MJF stands Ospreay up to whip, but Ospreay goes up onto the railing, to OSCUTTER to the floor! The fans fire up again while both men are down! Ospreay clutches the bad leg and the bad arm, but he manages to rise up and put MJF in. Ospreay then swings, but into MJF’s dragon sleeper!

But Ospreay flips things around! The fans cheer, as Ospreay hits CROSS RHODES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives, but Ospreay storms after him in a corner. MJF uses the ref as a shield, then he pokes Ospreay in the eyes! MJF goes up to DOUBLE STOMP the bad arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, hammerlock and lift, DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Ospreay survives and the fans continue to rally behind him. MJF is frustrated but he pursues Ospreay to the apron. MJF drags Ospreay through ropes, and HEAT- NO! Ospreay throws MJF away, MJF’s leg “jams,” and Ospreay takes aim. Ospreay springboards but MJF hits ropes to trip him up!

Ospreay gets stuck up there, MJF goes up to LEAPING LARIAT!! Cover, TWO?!? MJF is beside himself as Ospreay survives again! MJF stalks Ospreay to the apron, drags him up, and gut wrenches! The fans freak out but Ospreay flails and kicks! Ospreay turns things around onto MJF, but MJF KICKS Ospreay! MJF then suplexes, but Ospreay slips free! Ospreay waistlocks but the arm won’t let him lift! So Ospreay SUPERKICKS MJF instead! MJF wobbles, Ospreay reels him in, and tucks him for an APRON STYLES CLASH!!! Both men fall to the floor and Little Rock is losing its collective mind right now!

Ospreay drags MJF up and into the ring, covers, TWO!!!! MJF survives but Ospreay is too tired to be upset. Ospreay just rises up, brings MJF to his feet, and reels him in. Even with one arm, Ospreay hits a LAST RIDE!! Cover, TWO!! MJF reminds us why he was once the longest reigning AEW World Champion while Dynamite goes back to picture in picture.

Ospreay shakes out the arms, but Doc Sampson is called over to check. Doc checks that arm, from lifting to turning. Then Doc checks with Ospreay if he wants to do “that,” and Ospreay says go for it. Doc YANKS Ospreay’s arm to pop it back in place! Ospreay clutches the arm again but it seems that did the trick. Ospreay has the fans fired up again, and he drags MJF up for Kawada Kicks! Ospreay stands over MJF while Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns and Ospreay calls his shot. MJF rises, and he spins Ospreay around to BITE Ospreay’s face! The fans boo, MJF runs, but Ospreay HIDDEN BLADES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives a shot to the face but Ospreay roars! The fans are thunderous as MJF sits up, into a BUZZSAW! MULE KICK! OSC- NO, MJF stops the cutter to gut wrench, and TOMBSTONE!! Cover, TWO?!?! Ospreay survives again and the fans again cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving us this instant classic. MJF snarls, and he uses wrist tape to CHOKE Ospreay! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off, and MJF goes to the corner with Ospreay.

MJF wrenches the bad arm, whips him hard into the corner, and Ospreay falls. The fans boo but MJF grins as he rises up. MJF storms over to Ospreay, stands him up and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! MJF whips again, and harder! Ospreay falls back, MJF flexes, but the fans boo. MJF mocks the United Empire crown then says shove it. MJF drags Ospreay up, whips him corner to corner again, but Ospreay reveres! MJF tumbles up, comes back, and Ospreay CHOPS! And CHOPS! But MJF blocks one again to WRING the arm again! Ospreay writhes, MJF leans on ropes, and then MJF runs in. Ospreay DUMPS MJF out hard!

The fans fire up and Ospreay goes to the apron, only for MJF to YANK him down! MJF puts Ospreay in the ring and says that’s why he’s the smartest wrestler in AEW. But not the wisest as Ospreay DIVING HIDDEN BLADES MJF!! Both men fall to the floor and the fans are thunderous again! Ospreay rises, a ring count starts, and fans count along. We hit 5 of 10, Ospreay puts MJF in at 6. Ospreay goes up the corner, and he BLINDSIDE CHEERIOS! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives again but Ospreay doesn’t get frustrated. Ospreay goes to the apron and climbs up the corner, but MJF again hits ropes! Ospreay lands bad on the corner this time!

MJF climbs up, throws hands, then goes to the very top. SUPER- NO! Ospreay stops the Steiner with one good arm! The fans fire up as he tucks MJF in, for a SUPER STYLES CLASH!! But Ospreay struggles to turn MJF over for the cover! ROPEBREAK!! Ospreay is frustrated now but there’s nothing he can do about that. Ospreay drags MJF up but MJF HOTSHOTS the arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, for an APRON HEATSEEKER!! Ospreay flops to the floor, and MJF looks at the table…! MJF puts Ospreay on the table, hurries back to the corner, and MJF climbs! The fans are going nuts already as MJF SUPER MACHO ELBOWS THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as MJF goes for broke! The ref checks both men, and they’re somehow okay to continue! “This is Awesome!” as we once again go picture in picture.

MJF flounders his way back to ringside and drags himself in. But Champion’s Advantage won’t let him win the title like this! Ospreay is still on the outside as we pass 5 of 10, and he starts to stir around 7. MJF then springs out after Ospreay to get him back in! Seems MJF was just resting, and he shouts about something, probably about how he’s better. MJF stands, paces around, then stomps Ospreay’s legs, then Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns again, and MJF has Ospreay in a Cobra Twist. MJF sneakily grabs the ropes to add on leverage! The ref looks but MJF lets go in time. Ospreay still endures, and MJF digs a knuckle into the ribs. MJF then again sneaks a grab at the ropes! The ref gets closer to catching him but the fans tell on MJF! MJF tells them all to shut up! MJF still grabs for ropes, but the ref sees it this time! MJF says he’s not doing nothing! The ref KICKS that arm! Ospreay then hip tosses free! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! MJF gets up, Ospreay reels him into a package, TWO! Schoolboy, TWO!

Ospreay stands, slips around to backslide, TWO!! MJF escapes again, to headlock takeover and cover, TWO as Ospreay headscissors! MJF moves around, bridges to a cover, TWO as Ospreay bridges out! A spin and backslide, TWO!! MJF whips, Ospreay swings but MJF gets under! Ospreay leaps, into the POWER BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!!! The fans are electric again as both men are down! The fans sing for Ospreay as he crawls to a corner. MJF sits up then rises up to soak up heat. MJF hits the kangaroo stance?! The fans are torn, surely he isn’t serious. But then MJF runs up, KANGAROO- NO! Ospreay catches MJF!

Ospreay CATAPULTS MJF, but MJF lands safe on the corner! Only for Ospreay to tuck him in and CHEEKY NANDOS! MJF is still stuck so Ospreay goes up after him, for a SUPER POISON RANA! MJF lands out?! MJF shows he can do what Ospreay does and the fans lose their minds! LARIAT in the corner, then MJF hoists Ospreay up top. MJF goes up and up and smirks, gives some thrusts, then SUPER STEINERS! Ospreay lands out!! Ospreay shows MJF how it’s really done and MJF is in disbelief! Both men turn around, MJF swings but Ospreay goes Matrix! MJF returns the favor to dodge Ospreay!

Ospreay blocks a kick but MJF pokes him in the eyes! MJF flips everyone off, but Ospreay HOOK KICKS him! MJF rebounds to ROCK Ospreay! Ospreay rebounds to BOOT MJF! MJF rebounds to ROLLING ELBOW! Ospreay rebounds, MJF SWATS the lariat, gets Ospreay up but Ospreay slips outta the bomb! MJF blocks the kick again, KNEES Ospreay and runs, but into the TIGER WALL KICK! ENZIGIRI!

Ospreay underhooks to STORM- NO, MJF slips free to DREAM SMASHER! MJF runs, into a SPANISH FLY!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Even after all that, there’s still something in the gas tanks on both men! Little Rock gives a standing ovation for this AEW Match of the Year contender! MJF crawls to a corner, Ospreay pursues. Ospreay puts MJF up top, ROCKS him, but has to slap some fire into himself. Ospreay goes up top, but MJF fires body shots!

MJF gut wrenches Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks free! Ospreay then slingshots back up, to SUPER OSCUTTER!! And HIDDEN BLADE!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Ospreay can’t believe it and now he’s mad! Ospreay throws off the elbow pad as Little Rock is erupting! MJF sits up, but DUCKS the Hidden Blade! Ospreay tumbles but MJF is also down, too tired to sit back up. Ospreay crawls his way back over, sits MJF up, but MJF SPITS at him!! Ospreay gets REALLY mad now! MJF panics, Ospreay HEADBUTTS him! Ospreay reels MJF in, the fans say do it, and Ospreay says yes! Underhooks, one minute warning, but Ospreay isn’t sure which Storm Attack to use!

Ospreay hauls MJF up, to STORM…! NO, Ospreay stops short of the driver! They fans boo, they want him to end MJF but Ospreay says he’s not like that anymore. Ospreay drags MJF up , MJF SHOVES Ospreay into the ref!! The ref goes down, we’re under 20 seconds! Ospreay hurries over to MJF, DYNAMITE DIAMOND RING PUNCH!!! Cover, MJF WINS!!!!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall (NEW AEW International Champion)

There was literally two seconds left, but MJF pulls it off!! The Wolf of Wrestling proves he’s still just a lowdown dirty snake, but he’s the snake that stole the gold from the #BillyGOAT. Medics help both guys get icepacks, water and oxygen, and MJF rises like a zombie to celebrate himself. The Scumbag may have survived The Aerial Assassin, but will he be ready to go All In against The Bastard?

 

Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

Arkady Aura is with the Sussex County Chicken, as well as Max Caster & Anthony Bowens, and says they asked for this time to talk with each other. Caster says that’s right, because they know Mr. Briscoe is on Team AEW for Blood & Guts. They also know that Team AEW needs a couple more partners, and the only way Mark gets “The Best Wrestler Alive” on his side is when Caster & Bowens join the team together. Plus, The Acclaimed just beat The Bucks a couple weeks ago, they have their number, this is a no brainer! Bowens says that’s right! And they’re also this close to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions once again, they want a piece of The Bucks’ asses!

Plus, when you think AEW, you think The Acclaimed, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So they want in! Mark says that’s right! They had his back a couple weeks ago, so as far as he’s concerned, The Acclaimed is in, baby! But Mark’s not the only man calling the shots on this, if you understand what he’s saying. In steps AEW World Champion, Swerve Strickland. Swerve says listen! They’ve been through their fair share of squabbles, so he knows what Acclaimed is all about. Swerve’s also been in battles with The Briscoes, so he knows Dem Boys are real tough people. There is nobody better to go to war with than those you’ve battled against.

Therefore, “y’all ready to get violent?” The Acclaimed say hell yeah! Hands in, and Mark warns The Elite that Team AEW is coming for them! LET’S GO, BABY!! Bowens & Caster follow Briscoe out, Swerve nods, will this team be ready to rip apart The Elite? Will Swerve be ready for The Rainmaker later on tonight in the main event? Or will Kazuchika Okada rain on Swerve’s House and wash it away?

 

“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

The Redwood introduces to the “seeds, saplings, roots and most importantly, branches,” the Learning Tree, Chris Jericho! The “For The World” Champion is accompanied by “Bad Apple” Bryan Keith as he makes his way out here, waving to Little Rock. The fans boo but Jericho still smiles. “Hi, guys~! Y’know, Little Rock, you need to take a few lessons from The Learning Tree. This city is such a high-crime, violent city, 1,533 crimes for ever 100,000 people, you can do better than that! But let’s talk about Dynamite 250 for AEW, I was on the very first Dynamite, and I’ve been on almost every single one since.

“And the ones that I missed, the Branches were so angry, cards and letters filed in, so I made a promise, I’m never gonna miss another Dynamite again.” The fans boo but Jericho says he’ll be on every one, even until episode 500! It’s like he’s said: When you listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. And when you don’t, people get hurt, dammit! This isn’t right! Jericho is begging us all to listen to him! Look to those who haven’t. Shibata’s arm, Hook getting that fireball to his face, that’s horrible. And then Samoa Joe is literally driven through a wall because he wasn’t listening to The Learning Tree!

Jericho is begging us, this has to stop! People are getting hurt! At this point, everyone should realize they need to listen to Jericho. Surely everyone knows the teachings of Jericho are so important. Who would be crazy enough not to listen? Who would be psychotic enough not to use the teachings of Jericho? Who would be maniacal enough to- IS THAT MINORU SUZUKI!? Jericho is very worried seeing the Meanest Man in the World returning here to AEW! Suzuki has a paper in his hands, but what could it be? Suzuki goes to the ring and fans get fired up. Suzuki waits, and he steps in at “KAZE NI NARE~!”

Suzuki stares Jericho down while the fans cheer him on. Suzuki looks at the FTW Championship, then he snatches Jericho’s mic. “Next week…” Suzuki holds up the paper, Keith snatches it, and Keith reads it for Jericho. This is an official order from AEW management. The Redwood AND Bad Apple are banned from ringside for Jericho VS Suzuki, an FTW Championship match! Suzuki then HEADBUTTS Jericho down! Bill goes to help Jericho and Keith backs up. Suzuki grins and waves, “Bye, guys~!” Jericho looks to be fearing for his life now that he knows there is someone crazy enough to ignore his teachings. Will the King of Pancrase cut down The Learning Tree?

 

The Elite speak.

Nicholas asks Matthew and Okada if they heard all that. The Elite heard what The Acclaimed, Mark Briscoe and Swerve Strickland had to say, and it is ridiculous! What pisses them off even more is that The Acclaimed think they’re just gonna become two-time AEW Tag Team Champions. Not on their watch! Matt says what those guys need is a reminder about just who the hecc they are! This is THE Elite, the greatest team in AEW. And after next week, they’ll have all the gold and all the power! Nick points out it won’t be all the gold. Swerve is still AEW World Champion. Well, Matt says after what they do to Swerve, that title might just end up vacated.

Because see, they’re dealing with the most dangerous people in the business. They’re going up against The Young Bucks, the greatest tag team ever. They’re dealing with the Continental Champion, The Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada. They’re dealing with the unpredictable Scapegoat, the TNT Champion, Jack Perry. And Matt’s favorite part: making his return to The Elite, Hangman Adam Page! And oh, in steps the TBS Champion, Mercedes Mone! The CEO says hi to the EVPs, and she thanks them for banning Britt Baker from even being backstage tonight so that she can’t ruin Dynamite 250 for them.

Matt says let’s just say there’s no drama coming from The DMD to the CEO, via the EVPs. Okada whispers something to Matt and Matt asks if Mone will do the dance for them. Oh, her CEO shuffle? Of course! C E O! C E O! Ok, got to go~! Mone heads out, Okada wipes himself down. He claims it’s just really hot back here. Matt & Nick say okay, sure. But will The CEO still be golden like The Elite? Or will she end up the Native Beast’s next meal?

 

AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

Well, as we just heard, there will be no Britt Baker anywhere tonight because that is how bad she got under The CEO’s skin. Mone even made sure this Open Challenge would not allow Britt to answer it, so in steps a different former AEW Women’s World Champion. Will Mone find there are threats all over the AEW roster? Or will she still be making that double champion type bank?

The introductions are made, the teal title is raised, and we see who is truly the Face of TBS!

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally and duel, the two tie up, and Mone tries but she can’t push Nyla back at all! Nyla puts Mone in a corner, Mone goes up the ropes, but the ref counts. Nyla lets off but Mone scuffs her. Nyla is annoyed, but she mocks Mone’s dance. Nyla runs up, Mone leaps over, but then Nyla runs up again. Mone gets around, waistlocks, but Nyla THROWS her away! The fans rally, Nyla storms up but Mone drop toeholds her onto ropes! Mone CLUBS and stomps away on Nyla. Mone drags Nyla up to stomp into a corner, but the ref counts. Mone digs her boots in, but lets off at 4.

Mone backs off to then storm back up and drag Nyla up. Mone talks trash, but Nyla reels her in! Nyla suplexes, and she holds Mone up, does a squat or two, but Mone slips free! Mone CLUBS Nyla, runs, but Nyla scoops her! Nyla stops the tilt-o-whirl, and shouts, “Have you lost your mind?!” Nyla suplexes to hang Mone out to dry! Nyla KNEES Mone, goes to the corner and climbs, and the fans fire up for the GUILLOTINE KNEE DROP! Nyla drags Money to the cover, TWO!! Mone survives and Nyla is frustrated, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla drags Mone up, ELBOWS her down, then she drags Mone into a backbreaker rack across her knee! Mone endures, even as Nyla pushes her down! Mone fights free with kicks, then fires forearms. Nyla ROCKS Mone right back! Nyla then torture racks Mone to thrash her around! Mone endures, slips down, but Nyla blocks the arm-drag! Nyla whips Mone into the corner, then runs in, only for Mone to move! Nyla POSTS herself, then Mone goes to the apron. Mone BOOTS Nyla into the post! Nyla falls back, Mone soaks up the cheers and jeers, then she sits Nyla down. METEORA! Mone drags Nyla to a cover, TWO!

Mone is upset so she rains down fists! The ref reprimands, Mone lets off to swagger around. Mone stalks Nyla, stomps her around, then bumps her off buckles. Mone stands Nyla up for forearm after forearm, then she climbs up to rain down fists! Mone goes to nine, soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Nyla brings Mone off the corner! Mone RANAS Nyla away, hurries to run, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO! Mone is frustrated but Nyla’s a former champion for a reason. Mone drags Nyla up, and clamps on with a COBRA TWIST! Nyla endures, even as Mone puts on the pressure. Mone ELBOWS Nyla in the ribs, but Nyla powers out with a hip toss!

Mone stands, blocks a boot and KNEES Nyla back. Mone runs, slips around, and has a SLEEPER! Dynamite 250 returns to single picture while Nyla starts to fade! The fans rally, Nyla fights up, and she swings Mone around into a facelock! Nyla snap suplexes Money away! The fans fire up while Mone flounders to a corner. Nyla snarls, rises up, and runs in to back body block! And then LARIAT! Mone staggers back up, Nyla runs in at the corner and SPLASHES! Mone sits down, Nyla fires up and Little Rock is with her! CANNONBALL! Nyla drags Mone to a cover, TWO!! Mone survives, showing why she’s been champion all over the world.

Nyla snarls, and she goes up the corner. Mone stands to kick the leg! Nyla falls, Mone goes up and up to VADER BOMB! Nyla sputters, Mone gets moving, BOOT WASH! Mone pushes Nyla, goes up the corner, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Mone can’t believe it! Mone drags Nyla up, turns her, but Nyla’s too big to Gory Especial! Nyla RAMS Mone into the corner, the fans duel, but Nyla puts Mone up top. Nyla then climbs up to have Mone’s arm. But Mone fires elbows on Nyla! Mone adjusts position, and SUPER BULLDOGS! Mone then brings out a glove, all to mock Britt!

Mone puts on her glove, spells out “C! E! O!” RINGS OF SATURN, and then the LOCKJAW!! Nyla BITES Mone’s fingers!! That’s what Mone gets! But then DRIBBLES Nyla’s face off the mat, and puts on the STATEMENT MAKER! Nyla taps, Mone wins!

Winner: Mercedes Mone, by submission (still AEW TBS Champion)

Mone may not be able to do it like The DMD, but she still wins out and holds up both belts. Mone then spots a fan with a sign, “DMD > CEO,” and she snatches that sign! Mone RIPS the sign up, and the fan wearing the Sting mask is upset. That fan pie faces Mone!? Because surprise! It’s BRITT BAKER!! The DMD suck into the show and The CEO is running for her life!! Security surrounds Mone to shield her from Britt! The guards then swarm Britt, and Mone is safe, for now. Will Britt have her Wembley Stadium moment with Mone whether Mone likes it or not?

 

Jack Perry speaks.

The Scapegoat flips a coin, then tells Darby Allin, “You wanted to get my attention? Well, you’ve got it now. All you had to do was ask. Did you really have to go and hurt Brandon Cutler? Maybe what I mean to say is, do you think I give a s*it about Brandon Cutler?” He is standing OVER Brandon! And then THROWS him through a door! Jack SMACKS Brandon off a boiler, then tells Darby to come find Jack tonight. Then Jack will show Darby what real sacrifice looks like. Will The Relentless One get that fight with the TNT Champion after all?

 

Toni Storm is here!

The Leading Lady is back so soon after how brutally Mariah May betrayed her? Wait, no… That’s Mariah May taking her cosplay to a new level. The understudy is now portraying the part of AEW Women’s World Champion as she menacingly makes her way down to the ring. The fans boo the protege for how she did Toni Storm dirty, but Mariah grabs a mic for herself. The fans chant for Toni but Mariah sighs. “Let’s be honest. You all saw it coming. Everybody saw it coming, except Toni Storm.” The fans boo but Mariah says that woman is so desperate for the spotlight, she didn’t realize she was giving it all away.

“The question shouldn’t be ‘why,’ the question should be, ‘Mariah, what took you so long?’ Honestly, I didn’t think it would last this long either. But it was so… easy! And I was having so much fun stringing her along, I just wanted to see how far it would go. But then, I saw Wembley. And I thought, ‘Why take the old horse out back when I can kill it in front of as many people as possible?” The fans boo more but Mariah says she’s been Toni Storm, and now she can be so much more! Fans chant “We Want Toni!” and Mariah smirks. Mariah tells Toni not to worry, she still loves her. In fact, she’s never loved her more than when Toni was on her knees, screaming and crying Mariah’s name. “That was your greatest performance.”

As for Mariah’s greatest performance, that will be at All In! The fans boo more but Mariah says now, AEW is All About Mariah! Mariah then lies back on the mat to revel in it just like Toni would. But will Toni make sure Mariah suffers far worse than what she gave Toni?

 

AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

The Bang Bang Gang returned backstage but they’re asked about being stripped of the Unified World Trios Championships. Juice said hold on, they ain’t been stripped of nothing. Whoever wants these belts will have to pry them out of their cold, dead hands! But then Christopher Daniels and a couple refs appear backstage, and the Fallen Angel knows it isn’t the most popular decision, nor is it fair to the champs, but that’s the rules of AEW. Austin says he isn’t taking these belts! Daniels says it’s either that or they’re suspended and they don’t get a chance to fight for them against The Patriarchy.

Colten says fine, take ’em. Take all nine belts! Daniels gathers them up and Austin tells Christian Cage that they are not scared of a guy with a daddy fetish, some TikTok kid, a stepmom straight outta Brazzers, and a giant lizard! Juice says what will happen is The Collision Cowboys come home, and they come home with their little hardware homies! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make sure Captain Charisma and his “sons” never touch the gold? Or can no one stop The Patriarchy from taking over AEW?

It is a Champion VS Champion showdown to close this milestone episode, but no titles are on the line. However, Blood & Guts is just next week, and each side is looking for momentum. Will Little Rock belong to Swerve’s House? Or will The Rainmaker prove he’s the top champion in AEW?

Jack RAMS Darby into railing, Mark returns to help Darby! Security finally separates the factions, which is just fine by The Bucks! But will nothing stop Team AEW from destroying this corrupt Elite once and for all?


My Thoughts:

Now this was an awesome episode of Dynamite. They only advertised three matches, and it turns out that’s all we needed. Ospreay VS MJF was made the opener so they could just go off and give us almost an hour of their best stuff. It kinda makes some PPV matches feel lesser now, but hey, a match of the year candidate is still a match of the year candidate, no matter if it’s TV or PPV. MJF winning out surprised me, but he did cheat so that protects Ospreay. I was hoping for Ospreay VS Pac at All In, but I suppose “The Scumbag VS The Bastard” makes for some fun build. And with how much MJF was taunting Garcia, this has to mean Garcia shows up at All In to go after MJF.

TV Time with Jericho was properly short because we can’t actually drag the show to a screeching halt after how awesome Ospreay VS MJF was. As Jericho started listing qualities like “crazy” and “maniacal,” I just felt Suzuki showing up. Suzuki getting his FTW Championship match with Jericho next week is great, but I’m still thinking Jericho retains. Now, while Keith & Bill are banned from ringside, nothing is stopping Hook from showing up. Hook could go after Jericho after he retains, and that sets up Jericho VS Hook for All In. Which would be interesting because that makes it back to back All In shows for Hook and this FTW Championship.

Good promo from The Bang Bang Gang with Daniels, but like, so filler. Who needed to see them hand over the belts? Or rather, why couldn’t they have figured out to do that during Collision? Very good promo from Mariah May where she completes her transformation into Toni Storm’s replacement. She even phrased it “All About Mariah” to nod how this has been All About Eve the movie, in wrestling form. The fans kept going “What?” just cuz she was taking things slowly, which is rude, but I do feel she could’ve been faster about it. She was definitely going for something with her pacing, but maybe she was also just filling for a little more time. Toni will surely have a response next week or something, though.

Very good promo from Acclaimed with Mark Briscoe and Swerve to establish the Acclaimed joining Team AEW, and very good response promo from The Elite to call them out on it. Though, what a weird detail for Okada to be a Mone simp. He’s married for crying out loud! But that aside, Mone is still tangentially a part of The Elite, and she had a very good match with Nyla tonight. Mone of course found the way to win, but I do appreciate Britt gives us a Sting shoutout by wearing the Sting mask before revealing she was here. Mone running scared was pretty funny, and yeah duh, this match is happening at All In.

In relation, very good promo from Jack Perry, even if poor Brandon had to get beat up again. Jack calling Darby out was good foreshadowing for Darby’s own Sting tribute, and I figured last week that Darby Allin was going to be Team AEW for Blood & Guts. Great main event from Swerve VS Okada that The Bucks of course had to “ruin” to save Okada from a legit loss. At the same time, this keeps either champion from owing the other a title match so close to All In. Great brawl to give us the full 5v5, Blood & Guts is going to be some wild stuff, and it can definitely go either with so many champions involved this time. However, as Mark Briscoe is the only one whose rivalry is NOT in Blood & Guts, he probably takes the loss for Team AEW.

My Score: 9.1/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

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

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

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

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

The trios sort out and the fans rally for “JUICE! JUICE! JUICE!” as he starts against Moore. Juice gives Moore a free shot, so Moore headlocks him. Juice powers up and out, tags Colten, and then Colten tags Austin. Bang Bang Gang hit a body shot, KNEE LIFT, and LARIAT! Juice adds a SENTON, then Colten SPINNING SPLASHES!

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

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

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

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

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

 

The House of Black speaks.

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

 

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

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

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

Roddy shifts it into a CAMEL CLUTCH!

Collision returns and Roddy pushes Castle to a cover, TWO! Castle is still in this but Roddy tells him to stay down. Roddy tells fans to shut up, and he kicks Castle around. Castle goes to ropes, Roddy drags him up, and then CHOPS! Castle staggers, Roddy scuffs him, and then Roddy storms up. Castle blocks a kick to reel Roddy in for a BIG back suplex! The fans fire up as Castle roars! Castle rises, Roddy runs up, but Castle blocks a punch to DECK him! And DECK him again! And again! Roddy goes to a corner, Castle runs in to JUMP KNEE! And LARIAT! And JULIE NEWMAR BULLDOG! Cover, TWO!

Castle is annoyed but he CLUBS away on Roddy with elbows, then KNEES Roddy in the side. Castle waistlocks, but Roddy pries the hold open. Roddy ELBOWS Castle, swings, but into an EXPLODER SUPLEX! The fans fire up and Roddy rises. But Castle just hits him with another EXPLODER! And then Castle waistlocks, but Roddy grabs the corner! The ref counts, Castle lets go at 4, but then he JUMP KNEES again! The fans fire up and The Outrunners say one more! Castle goes corner to corner but Roddy dodges!

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

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

Mark Briscoe speaks.

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

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

 

Program loading.

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

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

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

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

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

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

The bell rings and the fans rally for Ava. The two tie up, Nyla waistlocks but Ava fires elbows. Ava is free, she fires more shots, then winds up to ROCK Nyla!

Nyla fires up, reels Ava back in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Ring rust is not a thing with Nyla Rose, and she barely broke a sweat here. Will The Native Beast make ever women’s champion in AEW and ROH her prey?

 

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

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

Darius ROCKS Ogogo, fights off Lee, but Ogogo reels Darius in through the ropes!

The ref counts, Ogogo lets Darius go, and Lee KICKS Darius down! The fans boo but Ogogo drags Darius up. Ogogo wrenches, CLUBS Darius, and Shane likes what he sees as Ogogo wrenches again. Ogogo puts Darius in a corner while Collision goes picture in picture.

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

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

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

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

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

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots. Skye ROCKS Harley again, but Harley ducks ‘n’ dodge! DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

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

 

Skye Blue speaks.

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

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

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

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both! The fans fire up and Cassidy puts Bennett in. Cassidy goes up top, Bennett gets under the jump. Bennett headlocks, Cassidy powers up and out, but Bennett runs him over. Cassidy UP KICKS, Bennett comes back to headlock. Cassidy powers out, ducks down then hurdles.

Cassidy arm-drags Bennett but Bennett arm-drags back! Cassidy arm-drags again, then avoids Bennett’s arm-drag! The fans cheer but Taven gets in. Taven waistlocks, Cassidy switches and shoves Taven into Bennett. Cassidy then back drops Taven, and has hands up! Bennett runs up but Cassidy blocks the kick. Cassidy spins Bennett, headlocks, but Bennett powers up and out. Cassidy tags Kyle, dodges Bennett, then puts hands in pockets before bailing. Bennett runs around and Kyle KICKS! And KICKS! And whips, to then kitchen sink knee! Bennett sputters, Taven runs in, but Kyle blocks the kick!

Taven apologizes and says he still doesn’t wanna fight. But then he pokes Kyle in the eyes! Taven says that is why he doesn’t wanna do this. But Cassidy runs in to tilt-o-whirl. Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett talks smack on Cassidy, goes to the ring, but Kyle catches him for a SLEEPER! Bennett JAWBREAKERS free, then waistlocks. Kyle switches, hops on, SLEEPER BACKPACK! Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS! Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

Bennett stays between Cassidy and Kyle, mocks the hands in pockets, then stomps Cassidy. Roddy is having fun now as Bennett whips Cassidy to ropes. Bennett ELBOWS Cassidy down, covers, TWO! Bennett clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Cassidy down. Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, then fires body shots. Bennett ROCKS Cassidy, tags Taven, and The Kingdom mugs Cassidy as Collision returns to single picture. But then Cassidy starts fighting back! The fans fire up as but Taven knees low. The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then whips him to ropes. POP-UP BAYONET! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

Kyle whips Bennett, Bennett reverses but Kyle goes up and over. Taven swings, misses, and The Kingdom almost run into each other! Kyle storms up, blocks Taven’s kick, and he hands it to Bennett. Kyle then gets a leg, to DRAGON SCREW CHAIN The Kingdom! The fans fire up with Kyle, and he runs in to SMASH Bennett! Kyle wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! Bennett ROCKS Kyle, reel shim in, but Kyle back drops and drops down, ARMBAR!

Bennett endures, Taven stomps, but Kyle grabs that leg! Grapevine and KNEEBAR!! Taven flails, Bennett stomps Kyle. Bennett drags Kyle up, reels him in, but Kyle slips free of the bomb to GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! Bennett endures, Taven hits the KICK OF THE KING! Roddy applauds, mockingly asks where Ishii is, and then The Kingdom hits the ROCKSTAR SUPERNOVA! Cover, but Cassidy breaks it! The #NeckCheck does not pass, so Taven TOSSES Cassidy!

But Cassidy fights the piledriver to Alabama Lift! Taven makes the save! Kyle BOOTS Taven! And he GUILLOTINE FACELOCKS Bennett! The ref counts, Kyle lets go, to then FLYING KNEE Taven! BEACH BREAK for Bennett! Cover, TWO!! Bennett survives and Roddy can’t take it! Roddy hurries to ringside but Cassidy tags Kyle. Cassidy and Kyle watch Bennett get up, but Roddy shouts at “KYYYLE~!”

Roddy tells Kyle he can’t do this to their friends! Kyle says Roddy needs to just back off. The ref tells Roddy to stop, but here’s Ishii!! Ishii YANKS Roddy down, he fires off hands! The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
