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

Backstage interview with The Acclaimed.

Lexy Nair is with Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Billy Gunn. First off, congrats on the recent success of the newest video. Thank you, Lexy. And Bowens is facing Brian Cage in tonight’s main event, how- Daddy Ass has us stop there. Let’s talk about everyone going crazy, running wild. The Embassy turning on Swerve, The Elite abusing their authority. Billy isn’t sure if Lexy has watched older wrestling, but Billy has a thing about authority. So if they wanna get wild, if they wanna go nuts, that is right up their aisle!

Caster says that’s right! He also thanks Lexi for saying those nice things about his song. But that song was about him and Bowens going back to the Tag Division. If you read the lyrics, which are great lyrics, but none of those team decided to wrestle The Acclaimed. Perhaps they’re a little too afraid to wrestle the best team alive. So they took the first match they could find, and that turned out to be Bowens VS Brian Cage 1v1. Sure, Brian is The Machine, but there are a lot of machines that are now antiquated, and we know Brian doesn’t have AI in his brain. In fact, he can’t update his software! It’s about time Bowens takes Brian to the junkyard!

Bowens says that’s right! Platinum Max & Daddy Ass said it themselves, there is a lot of chaos and madness going on in AEW! Bowens tells Brian and his cronies that they decided to side with The Elite, well you’re looking at the foundation of AEW! The best tag team alive, the best homegrown stars, The Acclaimed! That train is gonna roll right through Brian tonight, courtesy of the Scissor King! Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! Say it again, EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed!! The Five Tool Player is fired up, but will he need all those tools to dismantle The Machine?

 

Rush VS Cody Chhun!

El Toro Blanco is back again, and this time he is looking to reach the top of AEW. Will he stampede through everyone put in his path until he is adored with AEW gold?

The bell rings, the fans rally up with “FOUR C! FOUR C!” Chhun runs up but Rush dodges! Chhun hits buckles, then Rush CLOBBERS him! Chhun sits in the corner checking his jaw, but Rush goes to the far side. “If you mess with the bull…” You get BULL’S HORNS!! Rush drags Chhun to a cover, Rush wins!

Winner: Rush, by pinfall

Rush stands tall, but he doesn’t even care to celebrate, because this was more an inevitability than a victory to him. But then he sees Chhun stirring, and Rush drags him out of the ring! Rush CHOPS Chhun right down! Then he whips Chhun hard into barriers! The ref reprimands but Rush THROWS Chhun around again! Rush fires down fists, the fans boo as Rush DECKS Chhun! Rush won’t stop, he finds his favorite bright green cord! Rush LASHES Chhun, even as more refs rush out here! Rush CHOKES Chhun with the cord!! The refs all shout for him to stop, and Rush does. But he wants everyone to remember: Nothing happens unless HE says so!!

Rush storms off, spits on Chhun, and then grabs a chair! The refs warn him, so Rush simply stands on the chair to soak up the heat. Will nothing and no one stop Rush from rampaging his way to the top?

 

Lexy Nair is outside the trainer’s room.

She notes that to close Collision, Lance Archer & The Righteous viciously attacked FTR after the match. Bryan Danielson walks out, Lexy asks for a medical update. Well, The Elite put a bounty on Team AEW’s heads, and it seems to have worked. FTR won’t make it to Dynamite next Wednesday. But the Elite also failed, because here’s the thing. The Elite wants to change the world? They don’t even show up on Saturdays! And the failure is that Bryan is still here! So this Wednesday, Bryan will be on Dynamite. The Elite can take whatever shot they want, but they better get it done the first time. Otherwise, they won’t like the consequences.

Bryan heads out, but are The EVPs going to make sure no one makes it to Double or Nothing to oppose them?

 

Deonna Purrazzo VS Robyn Renegade!

The Virtuosa is still seething over her many run-ins with Thunder Rosa, but it seems their rematch isn’t destined to happen just yet. Will Deonna one-up La Mera Mera by beating Robyn worse than Rosa did?

The bell rings, the two circle, and they knuckle lock. Deonna spins to wrangle Robyn, but Robyn rolls back. Robyn wrenches, wristlocks, but Deonna rolls, rolls and gets free. The fans cheer, Deonna smirks, but Robyn runs up. Robyn waistlocks, Deonna switches, but Robyn switches back. Deonna pries free to switch again, then she trips Robyn up. Deonna runs, Robyn stays low, then Robyn hits a rolling fireman’s carry takeover! Robyn runs up but Deonna ducks the kick to roll her up! TWO, and Robyn staggers up into an arm-drag! Deonna has the armlock, the fans cheer, but Robyn endures.

Robyn fights up, Deonna hits another takeover, and she traps the arm. Deonna makes it a cover, ONE as Robyn gets the shoulder up. Deonna knuckle locks, wrenches, then clamps onto the arm. Robyn fights up to whip free, then runs to sunset flip! Deonna stays up, then slaps the arms away to clamp on an ARMBAR! Robyn fights around, flails, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Deonna lets go at 4, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Deonna stalks Robyn, brings her around and whips, but Robyn holds ropes. Deonna ROCKS Robyn, Robyn still holds ropes! Deonna ROCKS Robyn again, whips, but Robyn reverses. Robyn ducks the forearm, and the backhand, then clinches for a HALF NELNSON FACEBUSTER! Robyn fires up, she sits Deonna up, and runs to SHOTGUN her down! Cover, TWO! Robyn is frustrated, but she drags Deonna back up and bumps her off buckles. Robyn CHOPS Deonna, smirks, and winds up to CHOP again! Robyn says one more time, then puts some stank on it. But Deonna dodges to CHOP back! Deonna whips corner to corner, but Robyn reverses.

Robyn runs in, but Deonna puts her on the apron! Robyn ROCKS Deonna first, steps in, but Deonna ARM CODE BREAKERS! Robyn writhes, Deonna storms over, and Deonna drags Robyn up. Deonna knuckle locks, wrenches, then top wristlocks to wrangle Robyn. Deonna traps the arm for a SNAP LOCK! Cover, TWO! Robyn clutches the arm but Deonna is on her again. Deonna pulls on the bad arm, then top wristlocks. Robyn endures as Deonna thrashes the arm, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Deonna wrenches Robyn’s arm. Robyn ROCKS Deonna, but Deonna wrenches again. Robyn fires off a flurry of forearms and the fans fire up! Deonna shoves Robyn but Robyn LARIATS on return! The fans fire up with Robyn, then she wrenches Deonna to reel her in, put her in ropes, and KNEE her! Robyn runs to then STOMP Deonna down! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives and Robyn is frustrated. The fans rally, Robyn drags Deonna up, then fireman’s carries. Deonna slips free, shoves, and BOOTS Robyn down! Deonna slashes her throat and vows to end this! The fans fire up as Deonna drags Robyn up.

Deonna Gotch hooks, but Robyn slips free! Robyn pump handles, but Deonna arm-drags free! Deonna BOOTS the lariat, ARMBAR DDT! FUJIWARA!! Robyn taps, Deonna wins!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by submission

Deonna didn’t even need Venus De Milo, but then she puts that on Robyn anyway!! The ref reprimands, the fans boo, but Deonna makes Robyn suffer in Rosa’s place! But wait, here comes Thunder Rosa!! La Mera Mera rushes the ring, but Deonna runs away! So when does the part about regretting to mess with a Jersey girl come in? Rosa checks Robyn, and Deonna slithers back in! Deonna CLOBBERS Rosa from behind! Oh so that’s the part about Jersey? Rosa gets up, though, and Deonna retreats again. Rosa runs Deonna down and grabs her by the hair! Rosa drags Deonna back to the ring to RAM her into the apron!

The fans fire up as Rosa tells Deonna to fight her now! Rosa puts Deonna in, Deonna rolls out of the ring and runs into the crowd! The fans boo as Deonna flees into the night. When and where will Deonna have to give Rosa this fight?

 

Scorpio Sky speaks.

“I have done things people dream about. I’ve made money, faced legends, won championship after championship after championship. And you might not wanna hear this, but that was easy. And that doesn’t mean I don’t relate. I understand a normal person put in my position would fail. Because since time began, when people wanted to see a star, they’d look up at the Sky. And all that does is put me in the perfect place to reach down and lift you all up here with me. So to all the fans around the world, I’m coming back. And I’m here for you.” But will this comeback finally be the time Scorpio Sky reaches the top of the mountain?

 

Backstage interview with Sonjay Dutt.

Lexy Nair says Sonjay asked for this time, what is on his mind? Sonjay says first off, he sure doesn’t need Lexy here so hit the bricks. Skedaddle, peace, see ya. Lexy sighs and leaves, and Sonjay says this is for Bryan Danielson. The Elite have put a price out on Bryan’s head, and Sonjay just got off the phone with them, they have worked out quite the deal. Bryan says he’ll be on Dynamite, and so is Sonjay. But no, Sonjay isn’t the one that’ll take him out once and for all. This Wednesday, it will be The American Dragon VS… The Indian Giant! Yeah, that’s right! The one in a billion, Satnam Singh!

And y’know what? Dragon meat is expensive, so hopefully he goes well with a little chicken masala. This Wednesday, it will be one hell of a cookout! Sonjay laughs to himself, but will Bryan be the one with the last laugh after taking on this giant roadblock?

 

PROGRAMMING NOTE for Rampage next week!

Yes, Rampage returns to Friday nights next week, BUT at a special time of 6:30 Eastern, 3:30 Pacific! Make sure your DVRs know so you don’t miss this special Double or Nothing weekend edition!

 

Brian Cage VS Anthony Bowens w/ The Acclaimed!

The Machine turned on Swerve and then got beat by Swerve, crossing him off the list of top contenders. But will he reboot and head for other title opportunities? Or will The Acclaimed prove they can get it done in any division?

As always, Platinum Max has a diss track! “I heard Brian Cage got captain plans. We leave you bleeding so hard, you got menstrual cramps! Damn you are ugly, lookin’ pathetic. You are so small, get off the Ozempic! When did Brian Cage stop lifting weights? Beat him so bad, whip his ass into shape! Run you outta town just like Daim, because in Portland, Everybody Loves The Acclaimed!” Bowens then says, “PORTLAAAAND~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does~! The fans are fired up, but will Cage get his stuff in in response?

The bell rings and the fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” Cage and Bowens circle, tie up, and Cage shoves Bowens away! Cage flexes, fans are torn, and Cage says to scissor that. Bowens has Cage hold on, and then Bowens flexes. The fans cheer for Bowens, and he does scissor that! Cage runs up, Bowens gets around, then CHOPS! And CHOPS! Cage TOSSES Bowens to a corner, takes a swing, but Bowens dodges! Bowens CHOPS and CHOPS, but Cage shoves Bowens away. Cage runs up, Bowens gets under and kicks low. Bowens whips, Cage reverses, but Bowens goes up and over. Bowens hurdles, headlocks, but Cage powers out.

Bowens hurdles, slips around the lariat and DDTS! Cover, ONE!! Cage is tougher than that but the fans fire up behind Bowens. Bowens gets Cage up but Cage SPINEBUSTERS him! Cage says no more scissors! Cage storms up to RAM into Bowens! And RAM in again! And then CHOP! The fans “WOO~!” while Cage stalks Bowens. Cage bumps Bowens off buckles, then says one more time! NOT! Cage trolls the fans, whips Bowens, then runs up to UPPERCUT! LARIAT! SAIDO! Cage asks who betta but the fans are torn. Cage storms over to Bowens, drags him up, and ROCKS him with a forearm. Cage CHOPS, ROCKS Bowens again, then CHOPS again.

The ref counts, Cage whips corner to corner, then runs up. Bowens dodges the splash, blocks the kick, CLUBS the knee then KNEE JAMMERS into a DRAGON SCREW! Cage writhes and flounders to the apron while Bowens catches his breath. Bowens storms up, brings Cage up, but Cage swings! Bowens ducks, feints, then kicks the legs out! Cage hits apron on the way down, and Bowens aims. Bowens slingshots but Cage moves, so Bowens just goes to the apron. But Cage blocks the Penalty Kick to bring Bowens down, POST BOMB!! Cage gloats, then leaves Bowens behind, while Rampage goes picture in picture.

Bowens writhes, Cage goes back out to drag him up, and RAMS him into barriers! Cage brings Bowens around, SMACKS him off the apron, then drags him up again. Cage whips Bowens hard into steel steps!

Winner: Brian Cage, by pinfall

Bowens may be an excellent former Tag & Trios Champion, but sadly he isn’t at the level needed as a singles guy. Will The Acclaimed have to regroup and focus on going after The Elite? Will The Machine be granted golden opportunities by said Elite?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage to once again follow up Collision, but I’m relieved that next week is going to be a partial return to normal schedule. Because as great as the matches here were, they just felt thrown together to tangentially tell stories. For example, Kyle VS Lee was a great match but Kyle has beef with The House of Black but they didn’t want Kyle getting one over on Buddy or Brody before facing Malakai next Wednesday. Shane Taylor Promotions deserves a touch better than being fed to the bigger stories, but maybe they come around as a trio after Double or Nothing to face like Bang Bang Gang or something.

And even our main event was an example of this. Great promo from Acclaimed, great rap from Caster as usual, but also a good choice for Cage to still win out. Cage has done singles champ stuff, is going to be the singles champ guy in whatever the former Mogul Embassy becomes after this, or even just a singles guy all on his own. Rush of course squashes his opponent tonight but him going after Chhun after was a good touch. At the same time, I kinda wanted the ref to reverse the decision and disqualify Rush after the match, throwing him into a worse rage and beating up on Chhun more. And again, why no La Faccion Ingobernable? Donde esta Dralistico, Preston Vance y Jose?

Good match from Deonna VS Robyn but of course Deonna won. Rosa going after Deonna and Deonna running away was not what I was expecting, it’s rather disappointing, and why not just give us their rematch with escalated stipulations already? Deonna VS Rosa in a Last Woman Standing maybe? Iron Woman Match so that it goes right to half an hour? Something cool like that would really show Tony Khan finally wants to do more with the Women’s Division after promising it like two or three times already.

And very good promos from Bryan and Sonjay Dutt to set up Bryan VS Satnam. I would think Bryan wins, but there’s a good chance Team Triple J goes after him post match anyway. As I just said in the Collision article, Anarchy in the Arena being No Disqualifications of the highest level, we could actually get way more than just the eight men advertised as the roster starts choosing sides, a very Avengers Civil War/Endgame type situation.

My Score: 8.6/10

Will Ospreay VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Aerial Assassin gave Roderick Strong one last warning on Dynamite, but this is about paying back that knockout shot last week! Will “OSPREAY! OSPREAY!” be cashing receipts tonight? Or will it be Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?

The #BillyGOAT gets away clean, will he be able to take The Kingdom down and bring the International Championship home to The Don Callis Family?

 

Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley says, “At Double or Nothing in Las Vegas, Konosuke Takeshita-san will try to score himself a shot at the IWGP (World Heavyweight) Championship. He’s been a hell of a blue chipper for quite some time. Now, he’s got a new attitude, some new representation. And he came after me. Me. Trying to put a big ol’ notch in that gun belt. Hey, I get it. I’ve done far worse. What’s my secret? What’s the secret of the BCC? When you stand where I stand in this sport, you get used to being a target. How do we survive? Guys like you, The Callis Family, you’re in it for the gold, you’re in it for the green and chasing fame and fortune, adulation, Instagram, all that.

“BCC, we don’t give a rat’s ass about any of that. We do this because this is who we are. This is our nature. We don’t hunt because we are hungry, we hunt because we are lions. We like it. We never, ever play for money. We play for blood.” Claudio Castagnoli adds that a lot of times, he’s the voice of reason here. Even when no one listens, it’s fine. Things just keep repeating and repeating and he doesn’t like standing here to talk to the camera, because it is the most awful thing to do. What matters is going out there and showing it week after week! And y’know how many people stand back here and tell you how good they are? How great they are?

They have passion! They practice their lines in the mirror! Then they come here, tell you how really, really good they are, and how it’s just been their dream all their lives. And it’s all fake! So fake because they don’t live it one day of their lives. It’s like The Emperor’s New Clothes. Only the BCC can see it. They see through the fake, through the facade. They see through it because while others try to make a name off BCC, that’s a big mistake. You are dealing with the real deal right here! Moxley likes it. Takeshita, you started this game. At Double or Nothing, the BCC finishes it. Will The Maniac tear down The Alpha and send a message to the rest?

 

BREAKING NEWS for AEW’s “Path to All In!”

AEW hears from Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey.

It was backstage after Dynamite that The Learning Tree, after getting patched up, told Hook, “Wow, I can tell that I touched a nerve there when you hit me with that microphone and made me bleed my own blood.” But Hook, Jericho isn’t mad. It tells him that Hook is learning what it takes to be a champion again. Hook was the “For The World” Champion, and will be again some day, but it’ll take some time. Hook is still learning. Jericho is glad Hook is in the #JerichoVortex and hit him hard enough to make him bleed. It really hurts, but y’know what? It also makes Jericho proud. Makes him proud to see Hook get a little more serious! This is serious business!

This is what The Learning Tree is here for! To make Hook a better person and a better wrestler, both inside the ring and out. Jericho will need stitches, and will gladly get them. Because it is proof that Hook is learning what The Learning Tree is teaching. So in a roundabout way, thank you, Hook. And good luck in the qualifiers. Wow, that really hurts. Really got him with that mic. Hook is “learning,” but will he be the one teaching Jericho a thing or two?

 

FTW Contender Series: Hook VS Johnny TV w/ Taya Valkyrie!

The Learning Tree is giving opportunities to those who are worthy, but it will still come down to who is the most deserving. Will the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil prove he’s the only one deserving? Or will Johnny #SendHook to the back of the line?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hook. The two circle, Johnny tests the waters with kicks. The two tie up, Hook headlocks, and Hook wrenches to a hammerlock then headlock.

The fans fire up with Hook and he storms around. Hook brings Johnny up but Johnny JAWBREAKERS! Johnny ROCKS Hook, Hook ROCKS Johnny! Hook fires more shots, but Johnny kicks low! Hook dodges the lariat, but almost runs into Taya!

Winner: Hook, by submission (advances to the Triple Threat)

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil is now moving on to Dynamite’s Triple Threat #1 Contender’s match! Will he make Jericho regret not just giving him the match?

As Hook heads out, Shibata makes his entrance! The Wrestler is also in this series, and he gives Hook a fist bump as they cross paths. Will Shibata join Hook in that Triple Threat? Or will Azucar make things sweet?

FTW Contender Series: Kastuyori Shibata VS Rocky Romero!

The bell rings, the two shake hands, and the fans cheer. Shibata and Rocky circle, the fans rally up, and the two feel things out.

Rocky wrenches out to a wristlock but Shibata spins and wrenches back. Rocky rolls but Shibata wrangles him! Shibata double wristlocks, but Rocky powers Shibata to ropes. Shibata still holds onto the wristlock as Rocky tries to whip. The fans rally, Rocky throws knees and powers out this time. Shibata stops himself to stomp Rocky on the back!

Shibata gets a leg, steps through, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~!” as Rocky endures. Shibata puts on pressure, but Rocky crawls for ropes! ROPEBREAK, and Shibata lets go quickly. Shibata stomps Rocky, CLUBS him, then CLUBS him again. Shibata runs, but Rocky catches him into an IRON OCTOPUS! The fans cheer while Shibata endures! Shibata fights up, pops free and throws Rocky down! And it’s back to the FIGURE FOUR! Rocky endures again while fans “WOO~!” Shibata puts on the pressure, Rocky pries at the main leg, but Shibata pulls on Rocky’s legs. They roll, roll, and end up in the ROPEBREAK!

The ref counts, the leglock is undone, and Shibata brings Rocky up to bump him off buckles. Shibata fires forearms, UPPERCUTS, then UPPERCUTS again. Shibata goes corner to corner, but into a BOOT! Rocky kicks again, Shibata bocks, so Rocky reel shim in for an UPPERCUT! Rocky goes up and jumps, TORNADO DDT! Both men are down and the fans fire up while Collision goes picture in picture.

And CHOPS and UPPERCUTS and runs, but Rocky dumps him out! Shibata stays on the apron, and gets a SLEEPER! The ref counts, Rocky wrenches free to HOTSHOT the arm!

Rocky’s leg jams, Shibata CLOBBERS him! Shibata comes back, leg scissor takedown into the HEEL HOOK!! Rocky flails, reaches out, but Shibata keeps him back! Rocky crawls his way over, reaches out, ROPEBREAK! The fans are torn as Shibata lets Rocky go. Shibata stomps Rocky, drags him up, and fires off forearms. Shibata UPPERCUTS, then stomps Rocky down.

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by submission (advances to the Triple Threat)

And with that, we’re two thirds of the way to that contender’s match! Shibata shows Rocky respect, Rocky shows it back, and Rocky tells Shibata to go win that title. Will The Wrestler get past the Triple Threat to get another shot at Jericho?

Well, just like Shibata did with Hook, Bryan Keith makes his way out while Shibata’s leaving. The Bounty Hunter gives The Wrestler a tip of the hat, will this be the final piece to the puzzle? Or will things get literally much bigger for Dynamite?

As the Iron Savages make their entrance, Jacked Jameson tells “all you fat morons, skinny idiots, and Low T Losers to shut up.” The fans boo instead, but Jameson says he rode the Max Rail Line from the airport to the hotel downtown, and all along the tracks, it is filled with trash! Now that they’re here in the Moto Center, it’s funny, because it’s also filled with trash! The fans boo being insulted, but Jameson says he can’t wait to leave this dump. But this is the Sauce Hoss, Beefcake Boulder! He’s sippin’ sauce, livin’ hoss, and taking everybody to #TIDDYCITY! And then he just attacks Keith!!

FTW Contender Series: Bryan Keith VS Beefcake Boulder w/ The Iron Savages!

The bell rings and Boulder fires big elbows and clotheslines into Keith in a corner! Bulky Bronson and Jacked Jameson cheer him on, but Keith slips free of the scoop! Keith KICKS and KICKS and KICKS, then runs, but into a BOOT! Boulder drags Keith up, scoops him again, and flexes as he carries Keith around. POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Keith is tougher than that but Boulder tells Jameson to pass him that Savage Sauce! Jameson gets on the apron but the ref tells him to hop down. This is all a distraction so Bronson can get involved! Boulder brings down the straps but Keith sends Bronson into Tiddy City!

Bronson falls, Keith BITES them tibbies! The fans fire up, Keith runs, but Boulder ELBOWS him down! Boulder goes up, but Keith RISING HEADBUTTS! Boulder wobbles, Keith goes up and reels him in, for DIAMOND DUST!! Cover, Keith wins!!

Winner: Bryan Keith, by pinfall (advances to the Triple Threat)

Now that was a BIG win for Bryan Keith! The Triple Threat is set, will The Bounty Hunter be just one step away from having his prize?

 

Backstage interview with Pac.

Lexy Nair has found The Bastard somewhere in the bowels of the arena, and says that last week, The Bang Bang Gang had a message for him. Does Pac care to respond? Pac says he couldn’t care less! But obviously, he saw their little message. Credit where credit is due, those guys are very funny chaps. Hilarious, even. And typically, they’re naughty behavior would really ruffle his bastard feathers. But not today. He couldn’t care less. Pac hasn’t felt a thing in weeks! And you expect him to care about those idiots?! In fact, let this be an open invitation! Make him feel something! Make him feel anything, boys! He’s begging you, daring you! Make him care. Try harder.

And as for Lexy, just leave him alone. She nods and leaves. The Bastard is in no mood, but will that all change the next time Bullet Club Gold takes aim at him?

 

Bullet Club Gold is here!

AEW returns from break, and wait! They’ve attacked Pac! They drag him out here on stage! Jay White kneels beside Pac, gets a mic, and makes Pac sit up. “I bet you care now, don’t you? Bastard.” The Switchblade & The Gunns leave Pac down and out, and White says he told Pac to stay out of their business. Is Pac going to heed the Bang Bang Gang’s warning? Or is he only going to escalate things from here?

 

The Patriarchy speaks.

Christian Cage tells Nick Wayne, “You have a match right here tonight on Collision. And it’s jut a precursor to this coming Wednesday on Dynamite, because you are gonna be facing… Swerve Strickland. I know you’re ready for it. Yo have our support.” Nick thanks Christian, and says he’s been meaning to talk with him. A year ago, when Swerve jumped him in the garage, Nick was just a boy. A kid. But ever since teaming with Christian, he has changed. Nick is now a man! And tonight, this is just a warm-up. Nick knows he can beat Swerve on his own. Nick heads out, Christian & Mother Shayna beam with pride. Will Swerve’s House soon end up in Wayne’s World?

 

Orange Cassidy VS Isiah Kassidy!

Freshly Squeezed is certainly feeling out of sorts after Trent Beretta made things all about #JustTrent. But likewise, Private Party might have to get serious as sadly, Marq Quen is again on the shelf. Cassidy or Kassidy, who wins to get themselves back on the right track?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Cassidy as he and Kassidy circle. Zay runs up, Cassidy trips him but Zay kicks him away. Things speed up, Zay hurdles, Cassidy leaps over, then they keep moving.

Cassidy does give him time on the outside, and Zay paces around. The ring count climbs, Zay hurries up but Cassidy BLASTS him off the apron! Cassidy builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Zay avoids the desk! Don Callis is watching backstage and approves. Cassidy goes out after Zay to ROCK him with a right, then Cassidy refreshes the count. Cassidy ROCKS Zay again, refreshes the count again, taking a pause to lounge on the apron.

Cassidy DECKS Zay this time, then he puts his hands up. The fans cheer as Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets! Cassidy runs up at Zay, to SHOTGUN him into the barriers! The fans fire up as Cassidy kips up. Cassidy stalks Zay, drags him up, and whips him into more barriers! But wait, Trent is walking down the bleachers! Th efans boo but Cassidy is distracted, and Zay attacks! Zay CLUBS away, then shoves Cassidy down. Zay whips Cassidy, Cassidy reverses, Zay goes up the barriers! Zay flips up and over, then RAMS Cassidy into barriers! BARRIER BACK SUPLEX! Trent pretends to be concerned as Zay puts Cassidy in.

Zay climbs up, leaps, but Cassidy gets away! Zay rolls, Cassidy ducks ‘n’ dodges, but runs into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Zay drags Cassidy up, whips Cassidy into a corner hard, and Cassidy tumbles up and out! Trent applauds, the ring count starts, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Zay leaves Cassidy behind, Cassidy rolls his way towards the apron but the count is 5 of 10. Cassidy stands and rolls in at 7, only for Zay to DROPKICK him back out! Zay then goes out to get Cassidy, and whips him hard into barriers! Zay mocks the hands in pockets, then he stomps away on Cassidy. Zay drags Cassidy up and puts him in the ring, then slingshot SENTONS! Zay mocks the hands in pockets some more, then soaks up the heat with a mocking thumbs up. Zay then mocks the “devastating” kicks! Zay kicks and kicks, but Cassidy fires body shots in return! Zay gets around to hit a BIG back suplex!

Zay talks trash, stalks Cassidy, then drags him up. Zay CHOKES Cassidy on the ropes, but the ref counts. Zay lets off at 4, argues with the ref, then drags Cassidy up. Zay whips Cassidy hard into buckles! Cassidy falls in a heap and flops right out of the ring. Zay drags steel steps over, talks a little trash on Trent, then grabs Cassidy. Zay SMACKS Cassidy off the steps, talks a bit more smack on Trent, but Trent tells him to focus on Cassidy. Zay drags Cassidy up to the very top of the steps, and Trent says go ahead. Zay lifts, Collision returns to single picture, but Cassidy fights back! Cassidy back drops Zay to the floor!

The fans rally for Cassidy as he gets in the ring. Cassidy grits his teeth, Trent frowns, and Zay rolls back in. Cassidy drags himself up with the ropes, the fans rally, and Zay storms up, but into counter punches! They go back and forth, Zay eggs Cassidy on, so Cassidy ROCKS him again and again! Zay RAMS Cassidy into a corner, then reels him in, to suplex! STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! The fans fire up, Cassidy runs, tilt-o-whirl DDT! The fans fire up again while Trent scowls. Cassidy grits his teeth, kips up, and the fans cheer! The elbow pad comes off and Cassidy throws it at Trent! Cassidy aims at Zay, for the ORANGE- NO Zay ducks!

Trent is disappointed but Callis is pleased. Is Cassidy really going to end up turning to the dark side- er, Don Callis Family?

Cassidy drags Trent over the railing, security separates them fast! The fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” but we’ll see that soon enough. Will Trent suffer for what he did?

Garcia JAMS Archer, DECKS Vinnie, then hits a SAIDO on Dutch!! Garcia runs up to clothesline Dutch up and out! The fans fire up as Garcia runs off Vinnie and Archer, too! But was the save a little too late with FTR suffering the worst of it? Are The Elite going to make sure there’s no one to even be on Team AEW?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision here, and of course more is set up for Double or Nothing. Very good promo from Moxley and Claudio, and Moxley VS Takeshita is made, but it will just be an IWGP World Heavyweight Championship  Eliminator, not a straight up title match. Maybe that means Takeshita wins so that he earns a title match for Forbidden Door, and then he loses there. Though, if that’s the case, Moxley must be getting past Evil at NJPW Dominion just a few weeks before Forbidden Door. Moxley’s great in the ring and all but I’m starting to agree with Shota Umino in his interview, where he said NJPW should not be some feeder to AEW.

Interesting for AEW to have Collision stationed in one spot for a six week stretch like that. Is this to make up for bad ratings/attendance for Collision? I mean, if they keep Collision interesting during that time, sure. Having something like tonight’s FTW Contender Series could help. I figured Hook would make it in, and same for Shibata. It seems the new attitude for The Iron Savages won’t count towards anything on AEW programming, Keith took Boulder out pretty easy. Hook VS Shibata VS Keith is going to be great stuff, and seeing as Jericho’s promo naturally called out Hook, there’s a good chance Hook wins. Though it’d be a great twist in the story if it wasn’t Hook or even Shibata but Keith getting his shot so that he can have another PPV title match under his belt.

Great stuff out of Ospreay VS Taylor, and I figured Ospreay would win. Great little brawl of him fighting off The Kingdom, though I was kinda hoping at least Kyle Fletcher would show up to connect the dots on Don Callis Family backing each other up. Great match of Cassidy VS Kassidy, even with Trent showing up ringside as a partial distraction. Great win for Cassidy, and Cassidy VS Trent is now made for Double or Nothing. That could go either way depending on how this courting of Cassidy goes for Don Callis, which also probably relates to how things go for Ospreay in that International Championship match. I still don’t want Cassidy to go Heel and I still don’t see Callis making a Face run work.

Very good promo from Pac to call out Bang Bang Gang, and wow I didn’t think Bang Bang Gang would get him so soon. Still unclear if this becomes a trios thing even though the Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions do need to defend those titles at some point. But even just Pac VS White 1v1 would be awesome stuff, would love to see it. Good promo from The Patriarchy, and of course Nick Wayne wins, even though this has also been his first singles match in months. He sure isn’t beating Swerve but that probably ends up just a set-up so the Patriarchy can beat Swerve down, keeping the go-home math in Swerve’s favor.

Very good match from Deeb VS Anna, and what an out of the box move for Storm to take Deeb’s banner and make it a dress. Still hard to say what happens at Double or Nothing, but the fans are still just so in love with Storm, it doesn’t feel like she’s losing the title. And great Six Man Tag main event, great win for Bryan & FTR but I should’ve figured there’d be a beatdown. Garcia making the save is great, and honestly it’s a little surprising he wasn’t “the fourth man” over Darby. Garcia has teamed with FTR before, there’s history with Bryan when Garcia was torn between Bryan and Jericho, something about that makes even more sense than Darby just not liking The Bucks & Jack Perry.

But at the same time, Anarchy in the Arena being No Disqualifications, Garcia can still get involved to help. In fact, many AEW wrestlers could get involved to turn this into AEW’s Avengers Civil War/Endgame whatever. Which would be a great way to top off the PPV that makes five years of AEW, honestly.

My Score: 8.7/10
