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

The ref reprimands but the Dark Order & X-JAS get the edge. They all have someone in a corner, then they all coordinate to quadruple whip! But the Best Friends all reverse that, X-JAS and Dark Order crash into each other! And then Best Friends set up in the corners… and Hook needs to be coaxed a little bit, for the GROUP- NO, they all get kicked low! Fans boo as X-JAS & Dark Order reel them in, but the Best Friends QUADRUPLE SUPLEX!

Fans fire up because now we get the GROUP HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! Hook then goes after Parker with body shots, but Menard storms up.

Yuta joins commentary while Menard bumps Hook off buckles, and reels him in for a big suplex! Tag to Parker and he stomps Hook down. Parker stomps more, then pushes Hook around. Parker tags Uno, they mug Hook. Uno then bumps Hook off the boots of Menard and Reynolds.

Reynolds tags in, he runs side to side to ELBOW Hook! Uno SPLASHES, short arm LARIATS, and Reynolds covers, TWO! Reynolds stands on Hook’s head, fans boo but the Dark Order and X-JAS soak up the heat. But Hook clinches! Reynolds fights with forearms, then he bumps Hook off buckles. Tag to Menard, he stomps Hook then lets off to distract the ref, Uno and Parker CHOKE Hook while Rampage goes picture in picture!

Menard stomps Hook, drags him up, and ROCKS him with a right. Menard pushes Hook around, soaks up the heat, but turns around into a CHOP! Menard trips Hook, drags him back, and tags Parker in. Parker CLUBS Hook down, then stomps him. Parker taunts the Best Friends, flicks his hair gel at them, then goes back to Hook. Parker CLUBS Hook, tags Uno, and they mug Hook some more. Uno scrapes his laces on Hook’s face then tags Parker back in. Parker stomps Hook, but Hook powers Parker back! They end up on ropes, Parker KNEES Hook back! Parker then BLASTS Cassidy off the corner!

Rampage returns to singe picture as Parker goes after Hook, and Hook gets around to NORTHERN LIGHTS! Parker tags Menard but Hook LARIATS Menard down! The fans fire up as Hook and Menard crawl, hot tags to Trent and Uno! Trent rallies on Uno, then on Reynolds! GERMAN SUPLEX! And then another GERMAN SUPLEX! Trent still has Reynolds but Reynolds fights the nelson. Uno runs in but Trent ducks, the BOOT hits Reynolds! Trent HALF ‘N’ HALF SUPLEXES Uno away! Trent runs in at Reynolds but into a BOOT! Reynolds goes up but Trent YANKS him down for a SAIDO! Fans fire up with Trent!

Trent tags Cassidy, and Cassidy storms up to “unleash.” But then he really does fire off BOOT after BOOT on Dark Order! Yuta sighs as this is typical Cassidy. Cassidy dodges the Dark Order’s double lariat to DOUBLE SHOTGUN! Cassidy kips up and the fans fire up! Cassidy ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls, but Uno stops the DDT to suplex! Only to get STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy keeps moving but Uno BOOTS him! Uno hooks Cassidy up, for SOMETHING EVIL! Cover, Trent KNEES it apart! Fans fire up, Reynolds BOOTS Trent! Reynolds runs in to BOOT Cassidy in a corner! Reynolds puts Cassidy up top!

Reynolds ROCKS Cassidy, climbs up, but Trent runs up to get Reynolds! SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Cassidy adjusts, and Danhausen tags in! But so does Menard! Menard says do NOT do what he thinks he’s gonna do! But then Danhausen CURSES him! And yes, the PURPLE HAT! Hager is pissed, Parker tries to calm him down, but then Hager runs in! Danhausen dodges, Trent & Cassidy dump Hager out! Menard grabs Danhausen, Parker runs in to get the hat back! But Hook gets Parker in the REDRUM!! Menard lets Danhausen go, but Danhausen rolls him up! BEST FRIENDS WIN!

Winners: Orange Cassidy, Hook, Danhausen & Trent Beretta, by pinfall

Not only is X-JAS furious, but Yuta says this is unbelievable. But will the Decoder have to worry about the much more Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?


Backstage interview with The Outcasts & Anna Jay.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya, Ruby Soho & The Star of the Show to say they are teaming up for the first time in Six Woman Tag action. Saraya says yes they are, and sorry for cutting Renee off, Renee knows Saraya loves her, but… Isn’t Anna just the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? Ruby sighs and Saraya says “Liza Minnelli” is in a time out so shush. Anyway, Saraya thanks Anna for teaming with them, Lord knows they’ve needed some extra help around here. And also, they do have something in common that is giant, greasy, irritating, and needs to be handled. Oh, speaking of, here it comes.

Parker walks in, apologizes for not being here sooner, and then says hi to Ruby. But uh, yeah, the guys are ready to go, they’ll be out there for her, team effort! Um, no, Anna doesn’t want the boys out there. Especially Parker. What? But Saraya says this is why she loves Anna! She’s great. Yeah, she is. Hey, no, stop looking at Ruby. Saraya drags Ruby along, leaving Parker alone. Will the X-JAS still even be the X-JAS anymore with all this drama?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Schiavone says that 28 years ago, in this town, at the Mall of America, two men were in the main event for the very first wrestling match ever on TNT. It was Sting VS Ric Flair. And Schiavone wants to also say that the final match on TNT back then was Sting VS Ric Flair. So it gives Schiavone a sense of pride to welcome one of Minnesota’s favorite sons, as well as STIIIING~! The Icon makes his way out to the ring and fans howl for him. Schiavone then introduces the Nature Boy, the Minnesota native, Ric Flair! Fans “WOO~!” as Flair makes his way out now, and hugs Sting in the ring.

Schiavone has them bring it in. Wednesday night, they announced the location of Sting’s final match at AEW Revolution, March 3rd, 2024. It will be Greensboro, North Carolina, where these two set the standard for a great televised wrestling event. Sting stands at 24-0, the longest undefeated streak standing, and we’re just two weeks away from tickets going on sale. Sting asks to take the mic, and he howls for the fans! The fans howl back and Sting says Minneapolis, lots of great memories here! Not only did he and Ric do the first and last WCW shows on TNT here, but they did the very big, gigantic- Oh, can’t really say that on TV, sorry. Copyright and stuff.

But the massive match at Mall of America, everyone knows about it. Sting’s had great matches here against and with Lex Luger, Bam Bam Bigelow, and lots of other great memories. So good to be back. Thank you for those memories. Thank you, Tony Khan, Tony Schiavone and the Nature Boy! WOO~! Ric takes the mic now, and he says, “Wow. From 1972 ’til today. And believe it or not, I’m still alive. And that’s saying a lot, heh. Because I’ve covered a lot of ground and had a lot of fun. But there are three or four people that are always gonna be special in my life, and you’ll love these names.

“Dusty Rhodes, Ricky The Dragon, and a guy that I think I’ve wrestled at least 15 hundred times over our career, the great–and the word ‘Icon’ does not even enough to begin to say what a man he is. I’m so serious, to be back in my hometown in this moment, and this ride. This is an incredible ride. Think about the history of our business. I’ve been there with him since ’88, and I’m gonna be there with him in the end. And man, that doesn’t happen in real-life, guys. And y’know what? We’ve stayed as respectful and honest with each other as the day we met, and that’s really unusual. You’re the man, brother.”

Fans cheer, and Ric says, “We’re gonna dance all night and dance a little longer. We’re gonna stay up all night and stay a little longer. I cannot tell you where we’ll be at like the old days, but you know we’ll be going AEW strong! WOO~!” Fans echo “WOO~!” with Ric and Schiavone says Ric will be there for Sting at AEW Revolution, tickets on sale soon! The Icon and Nature Boy are riding off into the night, and we have the when and where. Now all we need is, who faces Sting in his final match?


Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander & Skye Blue.

Renee is now with the Shining Samurai, the Galaxy’s Greatest and Chicago Skye as she says a lot has changed in the AEW Women’s Division after Full Gear. Shida lost the AEW Women’s World Championship to Toni Storm, and Statlander lost the AEW TBS Championship to Julia Hart, the same match Skye Blue was in. Does tonight feel like a way to get momentum back? Kris says it has been a hard pill to swallow. “You work so hard for something, and you come back from multiple injuries, you come back and change yourself so many times, and you obtain something so precious, and it’s just taken away in a matter of seconds.”

And worse yet, Kris wasn’t the one who got pinned. Oh, okay, blame Skye when Kris had plenty of chances to win the Triple Threat, and didn’t. Shida tells them to stop. She also lost a title, she also feels angry, but not towards them. Not towards her partners. They can take their anger out on their opponents tonight! Kris agrees with that, and so does Skye. Will this trio of stars be able to bring down The Outcasts and Star of the Show?


The Don Callis Family VS JAH-C

So what if they lost the Like A Dragon Street Fight? “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs did damage to Paul “The Giant” Wight like no man has ever done before, and there’s still a lot left in the tank for Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita. Will they only be made stronger from that loss?

The teams sort out, Hobbs starts and Jah throws hands! Hobbs doesn’t even flinch! Jah runs, but Hobbs CLOBBERS him! In runs ??? but Hobbs picks him up to SPINEBUSTER! D runs in but Hobbs SPINEBUSTERS him, too! Fletcher & Konosuke step in, they all get a man up, and in synchronized formation, we get the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM, GRIMSTONE and BASTARD DRIVER!! Cover, The Don Callis Family wins!

Winners: The Don Callis Family, by pinfall

Fans boo but Callis celebrates with his “family.” Then Callis gets a mic to talk. “Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega! The Golden Jets! You put two of the greatest of all time into a tag team and what do you got? You got a team that could be the most dominant of all time. And I know that wins and losses matter here in All Elite Wrestling. But in the Don Callis Family, the only thing that matters is winning! And whether it’s singles, tag, or trios, the Don Callis Family will continue dominating until there’s nowhere for the Golden Jets to hide in AEW!” The ultimatum has been issued, will it only be a matter of time before AEW belongs to the DCF?


Prince Nana & Brian Cage talk with The Workhorsemen.

Nana says it is an unbelievable time for the Mogul Embassy. Cage says it’s always a great time. Nana says the Gates of Agony are in NJPW World Tag League, killing it and bringing home that money. But tonight, Nana needs to hire some help, and that brings in JD Drake & Anthony Henry. Nana has been watching them, he likes their style. That is why tonight, he needs their services. And this could be a huge opportunity for you both to step up to the plate and to prove a point. To impress Swerve Strickland, too. So tonight, Nana’s paid them, get the job done, and we’ll see if they can join the team. But he believes in them!

Nana & Cage head out, will Scrap metal & The Saint of Augusta help The Machine bring down the luchador trio in tonight’s main event?


Six Woman Tag: Anna Jay & The Outcasts VS Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander!

Both sides have said what’s on their mind, but it’s the emotions in their hearts that could make or break these team-ups. Will Saraya be able to keep things together between Anna and Ruby? Or will it be Shida who struggles to keep Skye and Kris on the same page?

The teams sort out and Kris starts against Anna. The fans rally as the two circle, then tie up. Kris waistlocks, SLAMS Anna, then drags her up to tag Shida. The former champs double whip, sweep and ELBOW Anna down. Then they shake hands to DOUBLE ELBOW DROP! Shida covers, TWO! Tag to Skye and she wrenches Anna to a JAWBREAKER! Anna blocks the superkick but not the BASEMENT ROUNDHOUSE! Skye pushes Anna around, but Kris tags herself in. Skye lets that go, to then tag herself back in! But Kris tags back in again! They argue, but then Shida tags herself in to get them both to stop.

But then Anna hot tags Saraya! Saraya gets around Shida, Shida gets around Saraya, but Saraya mule kicks Shida! Saraya runs, but Shida ENZIGURIS first! Shida fires up, the fans are with her, and Shida torture racks! Saraya endures, but Ruby says put her down! So Shida DROPS Saraya! Ruby storms in but Shdia kicks her low, and snap suplexes her onto Saraya! Fans fire up as Shida covers Saraya, TWO! Shida tags Skye in and Skye keeps Saraya from her corner. Skye whips, runs up and SHINING WIZARD on the ropes! But Anna distracts the ref so Saraya can keep Skye stuck, and Ruby ROUNDHOUSES Skye down!

Fans boo but Saraya howls to the moon. Saraya stomps Skye, insults her, and whips her to the corner as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, lets off to distract the ref, and Ruby digs her boot in! Anna pulls Skye’s hair to help out, then Saraya storms up to bump Skye off buckles. Tag to Ruby, she stomps away on Skye, but lets off as the ref counts. Saraya tells fans to shut up while Ruby drags Skye around. Skye throws body shots, then JAWBREAKERS! Ruby staggers back, Saraya tags in, and the Outcasts mug Skye! Saraya has Skye in the ropes to throw knee after knee! The ref counts, Saraya lets off, and she pushes Skye back in. Saraya keeps Skye from her corner, taunting Shida and Kris, then she stomps Skye.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, tags Anna and Anna CHOKES Skye! The ref counts, Anna lets off, and then Anna CHOKES Skye on ropes! The ref counts again, Anna lets off and distracts the ref so Saraya can SLAP Skye. Anna bumps Skye off buckles, Ruby tags in, and Anna ROCKS Skye. Ruby CHOPS Skye, stalks her to a corner, and stands her up, but Skye avoids the chop to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Skye and Ruby sputter and drop to their knees while Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and hot tag to Kris! She BLASTS Ruby, drags Saraya up and FISHERMAN BUSTERS! Cover, but Anna kicks it apart! Anna drags Saraya back and tags herself in. Anna stands Kris up, wrenches and HOOK KICKS! Then Saraya KNEES Kris down! Cover, TWO! Anna drags Kris up, QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! But Kris powers up to back suplex free! Ruby runs in, STO! Skye SUPERKICKS Ruby! Saraya YAKUZA KICKS Skye! Shida ROCKS Saraya, whips her but Saraya reverses, only for Shida to JUMP KNEE! Anna BOOTS Shida! Kris runs up, but into a COMPLETE SHOT! Anna tags Ruby and they get Kris up.

Anna HOOK KICKS, then Ruby SUPERKICKS but Kris pulls Anna into it! Ruby panics, Kris tags Skye and Electric Chair Lifts Ruby! SLAM and CODE BLUE!! Cover, Skye’s team wins!

Winners: Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander, by pinfall

The dysfunction wasn’t enough to bring down Skye and Kris, they made it work and now celebrate together! As for Anna, she is furious with Ruby, and Saraya pulls Ruby along like an angry mother with her daughter. Are the Outcasts going to be on the outs sooner rather than later?


BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

And after being the one to score the pinfall in tonight’s Six Woman Tag, Skye Blue gets her shot at “Timeless” Toni Storm and the AEW Women’s World Championship! Will Skye finally make it through the Storm to grab the gold on the other side?


Six Man Tag: Penta El Zero Miedo, El Hijo Del Vikingo & Komander w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Brian Cage & The Workhorsemen w/ Prince Nana!

While the AEW World Trios Champions, Billy Gunn & The Acclaimed, are down and out, trios are forming and fighting their way up. Alex Abrahantes’ league of luchadores want their shot, but will they make it through a Rampage? Or will The Mogul Embassy learn that having #CeroMiedo is priceless?

The trios sort out, and Cage starts against Komander. Cage kicks Komander low right at the bell, then whips him to ropes. Komander handsprings, Cage dodges but Komander dodges back, then RAN- NO, Cage blocks that to pop Komander up! But Komander sunset flips! Cage drags Kmoander up to OVERHEAD SUPLEX!

JD swings, Vikingo ducks ‘n’ dodges but JD CHOPS Vikingo down after all!

JD then powers Vikingo to ropes to BIEL him across the way! JD taunts Penta, whips Vikingo, but Vikingo ducks ‘n’ dodges again to CORKCCREW RANA!

Cage drags Komander up for a deadlift SUPERPLEX!! Cage flexes, Henry & JD join in, and then JD stalks Komander. JD drags Komander up, DECKS him, then stalks him to ropes. JD puts Komander in the corner, CHOPS, and then tags Henry. The Workhorsemen mug Komander, Henry throws body shots, then he runs in to forearm smash! JD tags, LARIAT, NECK TWIST and SLINGSHOT SENTON!

Nana likes what he sees as Komander writhes. JD drags Komander up, keeps him from the lucha corner, and he CLUBS Komander back down. JD drags Komander up to scoop and SLAM! JD goes up a corner, to then VADER FLOP as Komander moves! Henry tags in, he drags Komander from the corner, then ducks the enziguri! But Komander rolls free and hot tags Vikingo! Vikingo springboards to CROSSBODY! Vikingo SOBATS Henry, runs but into a cheap shot from Cage! The ref reprimands but Henry throws Vikingo down by his hair! NECK TWIST! And a headscissor squeeze, even!

Henry lets off to then stand Vikingo up, for another NECK TWIST! Tag to Cage and he RAMS Vikingo into a corner! And again! And then he CHOPS! Cage wrenches Vikingo, scoops him, and does bicep curls before he FALL AWAY SLAMS Vikingo! Cage flexes, taunts Cero Miedo, and he drags Vikingo up to GERMAN SUPLEX! Vikingo lands on his feet! Vikingo waistlocks, Cage elbows free then whips Vikingo to ropes. But Vikingo slides under, only to get caught! But Vikingo then PELES! Hot tag to Penta as Rampage returns to single picture!

Fans fire up and Penta SUPERKICKS Cage! Tag to Komander and he goes up top to MISSILE DROPKICK JD! Penta hauls Henry up, ALLEY-OOP into a MISSILE DROPKICK from Vikingo!!

MIEDO!” and FEAR FACTOR!! Komander is up top, he tags Vikingo before giving Henry CIELITO LINDO! Komander DIVES onto JD! Vikingo adds on the 630 SENTON!! Cover, the luchadores win!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & El Hijo Del Vikingo, by pinfall

The implosion of Nana’s team all over a misunderstanding gives Penta’s team their first victory together! Will Penta, Komander y Vikingo take this momentum to next beat Action Andretti & Top Flight?

My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage here with a lot of tag team action. There must be something in Cassidy’s contract about opening shows, though, because that 8 Man Tag certainly felt main event worthy. But then it made sense in story that it had to go first so that the X-JAS could be in action before Anna, and Anna would tell Parker to stay in the back during her match because of how Ruby would be involved. Great win for Cassidy’s team, and great win for the Faces in the Women’s Trios match. Rather surprised Skye is getting her shot at Storm so soon. Yes, she interrupted Storm’s acceptance speech moment, and won here, but why not give us a promo segment between them first, then the match on Winter is Coming. But at the same time, debut in Montreal, they want it to be important.

Of course Don Callis Family squashes jobbers, but I like that we got to see Hobbs, Konosuke and Fletcher all in red ring gear. And seeing Don Callis’ Last Supper parody, it makes me think he wants a total of 11 faction members. I say 11 because “Judas” is already accounted for in Jericho. So far, he has five, Callis really is gonna have to recruit tag teams and/or trios if he wants an easier time of filling out the group. Really good main event from Penta’s team going against Cage & Workhorsemen. Of course the Faces win, but also it was clear the Workhorsemen were going to take the loss for the Heels. Kinda wished Cage would beat down the Workhorsemen after the loss, not because of the “misunderstanding” trope, but that’d probably take away from the Faces celebrating.

And given Rampage is prerecorded, turns out that was for the best this week. I’d only just heard today about how… controversial Ric Flair got in his part of the promo segment. Flair also tweeted about it, both apologizing and not apologizing for what he said. This is gonna be a long three months if everyone has to worry about Flair spouting off the stuff he got away with in the 1980s when he was much, MUCH younger. That aside, the entire segment was redundant anyway, we heard them talk on Dynamite, this is the same crowd that heard it all, it’s just a waste of time.

My Score: 8.5/10

The Maniac is 2-0 with a strong six points, but it may have cost him a leg! Will he have to watch out next round with that target on his back?


AEW shares footage from after Saturday Night Collision.

Eddie Kingston asks them what they want him to say. He knew this was gonna be tough. Tony Khan didn’t put any scrubs in this tournament. Eddie just maybe got too cocky, thinking that since he put two belts in the pot, he was a given winner. No one deserves to win, everything is earned. Eddie has Bryan next but he’s behind the 8 ball. Eddie says he will not do this. He will not go backwards. Humble in victory and humble in defeat. Eddie has to go heal up, Epsom salt bath, all that good stuff. The Mad King vows he will be ready for the American Dragon.

Bryan Danielson responds.

Bryan says he was actually impressed by the confidence Eddie had to put up both his titles for the tournament. But now, one loss and Eddie feels he’s behind the 8 ball? Against Bryan? Bryan fractured his orbital bone, needed surgery in two places, and yet he is coming into this tournament on fire! He is NOT behind the 8 ball, he is NOT going to be humble, he is here to win this and be the first AEW Triple Crown! Will Bryan’s Blue League start be Eddie’s Blue League end?


Tony Schiavone is backstage.

He brings up that Sting’s final match is coming. AEW Revolution, Sunday, March 3rd, 2024. And when it comes to where they’ll have Sting’s final match, they thought of the many great venues across the world, but what better place for Sting’s final match than Greensboro, North Carolina and the Greensboro Coliseum? So many great Sting matches were held there, but one in particular that comes to mind is 1988, Sting VS Ric Flair for the World Heavyweight Championship. So Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina, get ready! Joining Schiavone now are those very legends, Sting and Ric Flair!

First off, 24-0, the longest win streak in AEW right now, what a fitting place for Sting to have his final match and maybe end on 25 than in Greensboro. Sting says yeah, wow, all those years ago, it was March 8th, 1988, his very first world title match against perhaps the greatest world champion of all time in The Nature Boy. Sting would’ve never guessed that night, 35 years later, we’d be here now. The memories, 45 minutes but a draw, commercial free, the first time in TV history that any sporting event even did that. But that’s not the real point of it. The big deal was being in there with Ric Flair. That was a make or break night, and so thank you, Ric, for putting Sting on the map.

Sting says yeah, that is a fitting place to end his career all these years later, Greensboro. Schiavone says so many great memories, and for him and Flair, forty years ago, does he remember? Oh, Flair knows. The words cannot be spoken to emphasize what is about to happen! Greensboro, where Sting, make no mistake, Ric didn’t make Sting a thing, Sting made himself! 45 MINUTES! Commercial free! With Flair! Unthinkable! Sting walked back there to 25 wrestlers going, “Jesus! You’re the man! You did it, Stinger!” He went out there and did it like a man! That’s what this business is all about.

Flair is 74 years old, standing next to the Icon, with his friend, Schiavone, and going back to Greensboro for what will be the greatest moment of his life, and God knows Flair’s had some good ones. He is honored to be there at Sting’s side! They shake hands, and Flair says the ACC Tournament and all that, nah, this is one for the ages! Highway 85 will be lined up from Richmond, all the way to Charlotte, like it always was! Sting, The Nature Boy, and AEW are coming to Greensboro! Let’s give it to ’em! “WOO~!” It’s the 80s all over again! Tickets on sale December 15th! IT’S SHOWTIME!


AEW Continental Classic, Gold League: Mark Briscoe VS Rush!

A true war right here, and now Rush is 1-1! Will this ungovernable one find a way to take over the league? As for Briscoe, he is down 0-2 with no points, is he already on the bubble?


RJ City interviews “Timeless” Toni Storm.

Madame Storm seems rather bothered by something. RJ gets her attention but she tells him to sit. And don’t be so loud. RJ does sit, and Mariah May takes the title for Storm. RJ wants to bring up the championship acceptance speech last week. Yes, and she was rudely interrupted! Yeah, that’s true. How is she feeling? Storm says they partied well into the night, spent some time at the compound, JFK or one of the Kennedys was there. But now she is very fatigued, dehydrated, and has a touch of the gout. Oh, wow. Well, he wants to inform her that she is scheduled to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship. But given her state, is she worried at all?

Worried? Was Fatty Arbuckle worried? Was Jean Harlow worried? Was Frances bloody Farmer worried? No, they all turned out fine, and so will she. Before she goes, take off her shoe, she’s feeling swollen. RJ does take off her shoes for her, but will Storm have to focus before someone takes the title off her?


MJF is here!

Fans cheer as the AEW World Champion walks out here with the help of his cane, mic in the other hand. He has them cut his music, he gets into the ring, and the fans cheer him on. MJF gets right to it as he says “December 30th, Nassau Coliseum, Worlds End, it will be Samoa Joe VS yours truly for the grandest prize of ’em all, The Triple B, the AEW World Championship.” Fans cheer that, and MJF wants to be honest, though. When it comes to Joe as a person, eeeeeeh MJF doesn’t like him. But when it comes to Joe professional, MJF respects him.

MJF respects what Joe has done for the industry, and most importantly, when Joe came into AEW, he didn’t come here to line his pockets, he came here because he believes in those three letters. Fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and MJF says back in the early 2000s, MJF remembers getting a poster in his mailbox and it was for TNA Wrestling. And he remembers thinking, what even is this all about? He tuned in and couldn’t have been happier. He saw insane feats of athleticism, he saw a new cast of pro-wrestlers he’d never heard of before, but most of all, he saw one man among the rest, and that was the Samoan Submission Machine.

While Samoa Joe may’ve looked unconventional, he didn’t seem to care, and neither did any of the fans. Because every time Joe walked through the curtain, we knew he was the baddest man walking on God’s Green Earth. Now unfortunately, later on in his career, Joe’s talents were not recognized and he was not afforded the opportunity to be a world champion in the WWE. Fans boo, but MJF says what Joe did for this sport was bigger than that. “Joe proved you don’t have to be a massive male model bodybuilder to be a top guy in this sport. Samoa Joe broke the mold. Samoa Joe proved alternatives matter.

“And because of the road that Joe paved, it has allowed for a man like me to stand before you today. Without a guy like Joe, there may be no AEW. So Joe, very quickly, what I’d like to say, as much as this all pains me to admit, thank you.” Fans cheer that and join in, “Thank You, Joe! Thank You, Joe!” Yes, thank you, Joe! However… MJF has actually, though grateful to have gone down the road Joe paved, MJF isn’t too shabby himself, now is he? Fans cheer that. MJF managed to pave his own road, and built on a new alternative. He is AEW day one, and he has helped build this place brick by brick! Fans cheer “M J F! M J F!”

MJF says he did that by defeating some of the biggest names in this industry! Names like Cody Rhodes, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega. But of all the names MJF has had to face in this ring, the one name he looks back on, and not only was he lucky to win, he was lucky to survive, that is Joe. Samoa Joe is a wrestling legend. But December 30th is not about Joe’s legacy. It’s about MJF’s! December 30th is about answering the question, “Can Max Friedman outlast the Final Boss of this sport one more time?” So now, MJF is gonna make a promise. He promises to everyone watching at home and everyone here in this arena.

MJF promises that on December 30th, it doesn’t matter if his left knee keeps sliding in and out, if his right hip keeps popping in and out of socket, if his right shoulder is hanging on by a threat, or if Joe beats him within an inch of his life. Joe could be King Kong and Godzilla incarnate. Because MJF promises that on December 30th, he shows the world that it is not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog! And if you want to take what’s his… at Worlds End, you’ll have to put MJF down! MJF even breaks his cane!! Fans fire up with MJF, but then the lights go down.

Now there are lights blinking all over the place. MJF looks around, but THE DEVIL’S MINIONS ATTACK! Fans boo as one of them has a baseball bat!! But here comes Joe!! Joe said he’d have MJF’s back so here he is! He YANKS the big guy out, gets that bat, and he runs the rest off! Cameras have trouble here, but when things come back, a message types out on screen. “In the shadows, our game begins. Next week, MJF & Samoa Joe… will you face the unknown in a tag match? Are you a hero, Max?” The Devil has made his challenge to the champ! The fans chant “DO IT! DO IT!” and “He’s Our Scumbag!” Joe tries to get MJF to ignore all this, it’s what this Devil wants!

But MJF says “I’m so sick of your Scooby-Doo BS! LEMME EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU! I am not dealing with your crap when I got that guy breathing down my neck at Worlds End. No no. I am going to take out all of your men, one by one. I am going to unmask you, you coward! And next week, you wanna tag match?! YOU’RE ON!!” Joe isn’t for it, but the challenge has been accepted. Will Joe just have to save MJF from himself?


Wardlow VS AR Fox!

Speaking of someone who wants to take everything away from MJF, the War Dog is on the warpath, just waiting for the right moment. After what we just saw, is MJF going to be served up on a silver platter?

But wait! Fox BOOTS Wardlow down off the apron! And then FLIES out! But Wardlow stays up! So Fox FLIES again! Direct hit but Wardlow is still up! Wardlow HEADBUTTS Fox, then whips him at the apron. Fox 619s on the apron to hit back! And then he goes up the corner to MOONSAULT, but Wardlow catches him! SLAM on the apron, and then Wardlow box jumps up to the apron. Wardlow storms in, fans rally up, and Wardlow drags Fox up for an OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! Now with both men in the ring, the bell finally sounds and this is actually a match. Wardlow storms up on Fox in the corner, to then TOSS him across the way!

Fox flounders out of the ring and Wardlow is having fun now. Wardlow goes out to stalk Fox, CLUB him on the back, and the ring count climbs. Wardlow hauls Fox up to TOSS him back in! Fans rally, Wardlow storms back in, and Wardlow drags Fox up. Fox shoves Wardlow but Wardlow CLUBS him! Wardlow trophy lifts, but Fox slips free! Wardlow runs in, but only gets buckles as Fox slips out to the apron! Fox swings to dropkick, then he goes up to 450 SPLASH! Cover, ONE!! Wardlow snarls and Fox is stunned! Fox runs in to BOOT! Wardlow doesn’t budge so Fox BOOTS him again! And again! Fox runs, but Wardlow pops him up for a SPINEBUSTER!

Wardlow winds up, to LARIAT Fox down! Wardlow then hauls Fox up, POWERBOMB! The symphony begins as fans want more! Wardlow drags Fox up, reels him back in, another POWERBOMB! And then Wardlow goes up the corner, to SWANTON BOMB!! Fans fire up and Wardlow still isn’t done! He reels Fox back in, to LAST RIDE POWERBOMB!!! The ref checks, Fox is OUT! Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

The remixed Powerbomb Symphony was too much for Fox, and Wardlow storms off. When and where will Wardlow sink his teeth into MJF?

A powerful homecoming for Dante Martin, he and his team have a massive win! Will they soon fly high and go after the AEW World Trios Championships?


Backstage interview with Action & Top Flight.

Renee is with them and congratulates them on the big win. So good to see Dante back, how is that leg? But then Penta El Zero Miedo and Alex Abrahantes step in. Penta offers a fist bump, and Dante accepts. They’re all good given Penta was responsible for the broken leg in that Reach for the Sky Ladder match. But then Penta counts, one, two, three. Bring ’em in. Komander and El Hijo Del Vikingo join Penta, that makes one, two, three. And Cero Miedo! Dante nods, when and where will we see this top tier trios match go down?


AEW TBS Championship House Rules Match: Julia Hart VS Emi Sakura!

The Princess of the Black Throne successfully defended her gold on Collision against Lady Frost, but now she takes on the Queen of Joshi! And for this match, Dealer’s Choice says submissions can NOT win the match! Then if Julia can’t be Hartless, will she just have to be ruthless?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if the House Always Wins!

The bell rings and fans rally up behind Julia. Julia soaks it up, but Emi laughs at it. Emi and Julia smirk as they stare down, then they approach. Emi dodges Julia and laughs some more, but then Julia grabs her by the face! Julia bumps Emi off buckles, fires off forearms and stomps, then whips corner to corner. Julia runs in, handsprings and clotheslines! Julia keeps moving, back body block! Julia snapmares Emi, KICKS her, but Emi just frowns. Fans fire up, and Emi stands up. Julia CHOPS but Emi CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Julia shrieks, but Emi pushes her around. Emi aims but Julia blocks the chop to WRING the arm!

Emi goes to ropes, the fans fire up as Julia CLUBS, HOOK KICKS then KICKS Emi down! Julia pushes Emi out of the ring, goes out after her, but Emi throws body shots. Julia whips, Emi reverses, and Julia hits steel steps! Per the House Rules, there’s a 20 count, not a 10, so Emi has more time to use. Emi runs in to SPLASH Julia against the steps! Fans fire up and the ref checks Julia as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Emi stands on Julia’s face, the ref reprimands, but Emi steps away. She has to be careful, part of House Rules is that disqualifications are strongly enforced. Emi then takes a seat on security’s lap before she storms up on Julia. Emi brings Julia around to CHOP against railing! Then Emi brings Julia over to send into more railing, and CHOP again! Emi puts Julia in the ring, drags her around and dragon sleepers! TWISTING DDT! Cover, TWO! Julia is still in this but Emi pushes her to a corner. Emi CHOPS, and Julia staggers away to another corner. Emi CHOPS her again! And again! And MACHINE GUN CHOPS!

Julia storms up on Emi to throw hands, but Emi SLAPS Julia down! Julia checks her jaw, but Emi digs her knees into Julia’s neck! The ref counts, Dynamite returns to single picture, and Emi lets off. Emi watches Julia flounder around, and Julia sits up to throw body shots. Emi just laughs and brings Julia around to underhook. Stalling BUTTERFLY BACKBREAKER! Emi waits on Julia to sit up, says she’ll be the champion, and then underhooks again!

Julia fights up and round, SLEEPER! Submissions won’t win but she just wants to make Emi suffer! Emi falls, flails, Julia has a headscissor squeeze! Emi rolls, pops out the back, and she hooks Julia’s legs up! ROMERO SPECIAL! Julia endures, then Emi THROWS her down! Emi drags Julia around, puts her in a drop zone, but fans still rally for Julia. Emi climbs, MOONSAULT FLOPS as Julia moves! Julia wraps on the HARTLESS LOCK!! But it won’t win! Emi flails, taps, but it doesn’t save Emi, either! Julia thrashes Emi, lets her go, and the ref has to remind Julia it’s her own rules. So Julia BLINDSIDE LARIATS!

Julia stomps Emi into the drop zone, then goes up the corner. MOONSAULT!! Cover, Julia wins!

Winner: Julia Hart, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

Another defense in the books, Julia is still golden! Will she keep on winning with such unpredictable rules?


Backstage interview with Mariah May.

RJ City is with Miss May and says we saw her at Full Gear and last week, but we also know she’s here, hungry for more. Mariah says yes she is. She knows she’s the new girl and all, but she did just come from Stardom, and she had quite the run. She is dying to show us what she can do. So thanks for connecting her with Toni Storm. RJ says it’s nothing, he and Toni go way back, used to play squash together. No, really, RJ is quite the curator. And Mariah knows Toni likes him, so this means the world to her. No, no, Toni makes things happen. He’s just happy to help. Mariah seems a bit disappointed, but RJ says without further ado, go get ’em!

Mariah knocks on Tony Khan’s door, steps inside, and talks with the boss. Will this Tony be just as accommodating as Toni Storm?


Christian Cage is here!

The TNT Champion, the Patriarch, makes his way to the ring, security right behind him. Captain Charisma then gets a mic while the fans boo, and he says what he’d like to do right now is go ahead and invite the Rated R Superstar to this ring right now. Fans fire up for that, and Christian says he knows Edge is back there. Fans shout “ADAAAAM~!” and Christian says he just wants to talk about what Edge said on Collision. So if Edge doesn’t mind making his presence felt, Christian would appreciate it. But still no response? Did Christian make sure to do this when Edge isn’t here?

Christian waits, gets upset, and asks Adam “ADAAAM~!” that he’d like to speak with him in this ring. Please, someone, hit the mic, get Adam’s attention, something. Or should Christian go back there to speak with him? “You think you know him.” And here comes Edge!! Fans fire up as Edge storms into the ring, and of course the security becomes a wall in front of Christian. Edge paces and Christian says listen, management wanted this, not him. Fans boo that garbage, but Christian says they don’t need security. He asks these men to vacate the ring. They shrug and bail out, even though Edge looks ready to pounce.

Christian brings up that last week, Edge challenged him to a match for the TNT Championship on December 6th, Dynamite in Montreal. Christian is here to tell Edge that they won’t make it to Montreal. They get face to face and fans fire up. Christian says they won’t make it to Montreal because “I’m sorry.” What? Edge is also confused, and Christian says he knows what we’re all thinking. Christian is only sorry because he’s all alone, right? Fans confirm and they chant “BULL~ SHID!” at him! Christian asks them to understand. Edge took out “The Prodigy” Nick Wayne, he took out Killswitch/Luchasaurus, but that’s not why Christian’s sorry.

He won’t lie, he was pissed about what Edge did to Lucha- er, Killswitch, with not one but two Con-Chair-Tos. Christian was so mad, he jumped out of his house, got in his car and just drove around. He needed to think, needed fresh air. And somewhere during that trip, it turned into one of reflection. It turned into a roadtrip of soul searching, digging down deep, trying to understand why he became the person that he is, this guy who says and does such unsavory things. And then he remembered those times he and Edge would borrow Christian’s mom’s Ford Taurus. They nicknamed it “Toby the Taurus” because they took it everywhere when they were trying to make it.

They didn’t care where they went, they were broke, not a dime to their names, but they didn’t care. They were having the time of their lives! They knew they were gonna make it. They didn’t know how, but they knew they would. And dammit, did they ever make it, huh? They went on to become multiple-time tag team champions, and Christian will say it, the greatest tag team that ever lived! Fans do cheer that. Christian and Edge then became multiple time world champions, two of the greatest careers in this sport. But take the wrestling away, and it runs even deeper. Everyone knows Edge grew up with a single mom. Everyone knows that Edge didn’t have a father figure.

Fans boo, already sensing where this is going! Christian wants Edge to listen! Yes, he is the Patriarch of AEW, but in no way is he suggesting he’s Edge’s father. Christian is Edge’s brother. And in turn, Christian’s father became like Edge’s father. Edge went on family trips, sat at the dinner table, slept over! When Edge needed discipline, Christian’s dad treated him the same as his own kids. He picked Edge up, brushed him off, hugged him and cheered him on. To this very day, he is still Edge’s biggest fan. So listen, Christian will just say it. They weren’t just random guys thrown together. “I love you, man.” Fans boo that one!

Christian says they’re family. And listen, when Edge’s mom passed a few years ago, that was the hardest time of Edge’s life. Christian knows that. But some time before, she said, “What I wouldn’t give to see you guys in that ring, teaming one last time.” Christian started thinking, that they should do this for her! Let’s go on the journey together again, like Edge wanted! Edge & Christian, for Judy “Judemeister” Copeland! Let’s do it for her! Fans cheer for Judy, but Edge is conflicted. Christian drops the mic, holds the belt, and then rushes Edge! Edge LOW BLOWS Christian first!! Fans cheer as Christian leans on Edge in pain.

Christian slumps down and Edge lets him fall. Fans want that one more time, but Edge gets the mic. “Nice try, dumbass.” Edge tells him to sit up when he’s talking. Edge grabs the belt, tells Christian to shine it up real nice. Hell, sleep with it if he wants. Because next week, the title’s coming home with Edge! Oh, and one more thing, Edge almost forgot. G F Y!! Fans are thunderous as Edge takes his leave. Will Edge crush Christian’s spirit as payback for everything he’s said and done?


AEW Continental Classic, Gold League: Jay White VS Swerve Strickland!

The Switchblade and the Realest are both 1-0 with three points, and now they are going to battle in what could be the decisive battle in this block! With no Juice Robinson, no Ass Boys, no Prince Nana or Brian Cage, who will prove to be the slipperiest snake in all of AEW?

The bell rings and fans fire up for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White still throws guns up, but he and Swerve then tie up. They go around, Swerve puts White in a corner, but White turns it around. Swerve turns it back around, White pulls hair to turn it around again, then he RAMS into Swerve! And again! And again! White tosses Swerve out, then goes out to CHOP! White then RAMS Swerve into railing, mocks Nana’s dance, but Swerve throws hands! Swerve runs and RAMS White into railing! Fans fire up with Swerve and he stomps White down. Swerve then whips, but White reverses and Swerve hits railing so hard, he goes over into the front row!

Fans fire up and security helps Swerve, but then White drags him back in. White puts Swerve in the ring, mockingly asks, “Whose House?” and he stomps Swerve. White wrenches the arm, CLUBS it, and then CHOPS! White again mockingly asks, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White CHOPS Swerve, but Swerve BOOTS back! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Swerve whips, White holds ropes, then he dumps Swerve out. But Swerve pulls hair! White HOTSHOTS Swerve, builds speed and slides, but Swerve catches him to BACK SUPLEX White into the front row! Fans are getting a much more interactive experience than expected!

Swerve drags White back up, White grabs at fans desperately, but the fans can’t do anything for him as Swerve dumps White back over. Swerve pushes White around, goes up the apron, and then he FLYING STOMPS White down! Fans fire up, Swerve puts White in, and then aims from the apron. But White gets a leg in the ropes! Swerve claws at White, pushes him away, but White BOOTS Swerve, then DRAPING DDTS! Fans rally for Swerve but White drags Swerve up to CHOP! Fans “WOO~!” and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

White sits Swerve up again, to CHOP him back down! White drags Swerve up again, goes up a corner, and mocks Swerve, to then hop back down and CHOP again! Swerve writhes, White drags him up, and White TOSSES Swerve out of the ring. White goes out after Swerve, but he CHOPS back! Swerve then clinches to hit a BACKBREAKER! White writhes, Swerve goes up to the apron again, and he BOOTS White back down! Fans rally up, Swerve drags White into the ring, and then clamps on a cording hold. White grabs ropes, the ref counts, Swerve takes a swing, but White EXPLODERS Swerve up and out!

White goes out after Swerve, hauls him up, and APRON GOURD BUSTERS! Swerve writhes and flounders but White refreshes the ring count. White then RAMS Swerve into steel steps! Swerve gets in the ring, White pursues and covers, TWO! White clamps onto Swerve’s bad arm, then traps the other, and he stretches Swerve out as Dynamite returns to single picture. Swerve fights up, but White throws him down by hair! White again mocks the chant, “Whose House?” Bryan commends Swerve on toughness. He had a brutal Texas Deathmatch with Hangman Page, and the only thing taped up is that arm.

Speaking of, White clamps onto the arms again, but Swerve endures. Swerve fights up, throws body shots, but White throws him down by his hair! Fans boo, Swerve gets up to SLAP White! Swerve CHOPS, White waistlocks, but Swerve swings elbows. White gets under to SAIDO! White then storms up to drag Swerve up, CORNER HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Swerve is still in this but White scuffs him. White mockingly says he needs his points. White knees Swerve low, and again, but Swerve blocks the chop! Swerve wrenches, gets around, HAMMERLOCK BACK SUPLEX! White writhes and fans fire up!

Swerve snarls, storms up on White, and he ROCKS him! Body shot! Forearm! Body shot! Repeat! Swerve snapmares, rolls, but White catches the Complete Shot, but then Swerve slips out of the Urenage! Swerve goes to a corner, White runs in but Swerve goes up and over to O’Conner and Eddy Gordo RANA! White tumbles, staggers, into the SOMERSAULT COMPLETE SHOT! And then a gator roll into a deadlift suplex! Fans fire up as Swerve covers, TWO!! White survives and Swerve grows frustrated. Fans still rally up behind Swerve, and he grabs White’s wrist. White resists but Swerve still drags him up.

White reaches out, kicks Swerve’s legs, then gets free. White swings, Swerve dodges and comes back, COMPLETE SHOT from White! White then waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! White runs up, but Swerve DISCUS LARIATS! Fans are thunderous while both men are down and Bryan says, “How incredible are these two men?!” A standing count starts, both men stir, and White flounders to ropes. “This is Awesome!” as White comes back, he and Swerve go forehead to forehead, and they trade junkyard dog headbutts. Swerve laughs, White throws hands! Swerve throws them back! They go back and forth, faster and faster!

Fans rally up as the shots keep flying, and Swerve DECKS White! Fans fire up, Swerve smiles, but White grabs at Swerve’s legs. Swerve grabs at White, White CHOP BLOCKS! White then gets the bad arm, clinches, and URENAGES! Cover, TWO!! Swerve is still in this, this isn’t anything compared to Texas Death! White clamps on with the sleeper, though, and he hauls Swerve up. Swerve throws elbows, but White wrangles him for a FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Fans fire up, Swerve endures, White CLUBS away on the bad arm and pulls! Swerve reaches out, fights around, but White keeps him from ropes by pulling hair!

Swerve and White roll together, but Swerve slips around to get White’s arms trapped! Swerve stands on that arm! Finger gun and BANG!! The arm goes back and the fans tell Swerve he’s sick! Swerve grins, storms up on White and drags him up again. But White fights the half nelson and puts Swerve in a corner. The ref counts, White arm-drags free, but then Swerve sends him at the ref! White stops himself, LOW- NO! Swerve blocks the kick, he was paying attention to last week! Swerve slips around and hits a BACKBREAKER! Fans fire up, Swerve runs to HOUSE CALL!! Then Swerve goes up and he takes aim!

White sits up, into the KILL STOMPS!! Cover, TWO?!?! No one can believe it, least of all Swerve!! White survives Swerve’s best shots, but Swerve drags him up! Swerve’s bad arm holds him back, but then White clinches! BLADERUNNER!! But Swerve flops out of the ring!! White hurries out after Swerve, pushes him in, and hurries to clinch. Swerve fights up, fights the sleeper, and hits an ELBOW BREAKER! But White still rolls Swerve up with his other arm! TWO! White storms up, Swerve trips and jackknife bridges, TWO!! BLADE- NO, Swerve slips free, but White fights the half nelson! And CHOPS!

Swerve CHOPS back! White CHOPS! We get the 15 minute mark, so time’s ticking away! Swerve CHOPS, White CHOPS, repeat! White kicks and CHOPS, then reels Swerve in. Swerve uses a leg to get free but White has him again, SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX!! Then the clinch, BLADE- ARM-DRAG!! Cradle cover, SWERVE WINS!!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall (gains 3 points; White earns 0)

White is shocked that he got beat! The #Jay1 aside, these points go to The Realest! Will the Gold League soon be whose house?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, with awesome Continental Classic matches. But also really good non-tournament matches, such as that Trios Match. Great return to action for Dante Martin, great win for him and his trio, and those three could really build themselves up into trios title contenders with matches like this. And really good TBS Championship match Julia and Emi, though they need to get better at bringing up how House Rules work. No Ropebreaks, the ring count is to 20, and there’s Dealer’s Choice. They just kinda threw out there that this was gonna be a No Submission Falls, which was honestly a brilliant move by Emi. But in the end, of course Julia wins, it’s still too early for her to lose this belt.

Wardlow squashing- heck, he demolished AR Fox, is fine for Wardlow but a shame for Fox. Wardlow is still staying strong as he waits for the right moment to go after MJF again, but maybe, just maybe, he’s been going after MJF all along as that big guy among the “gimp squad” that tried to get MJF tonight. Great promo from MJF to not just praise Joe but also bury Punk without having to actually reference Punk going back to WWE. Joe made the save as expected, and now they’re getting dragged into a tag match against any two of those goons, and who knows who they are really, but can’t wait to see how this all goes.

Awesome stuff from Christian and Edge tonight, a brilliant move for Christian to so blatantly play to Edge’s emotions just to save his own ass. But of course it was also brilliant for Edge to not fall for it at all and get the better of Christian. But uh, AEW needs to be better at live censoring their shows, that GFY got right past them. That aside, that TNT Championship match is going to be awesome stuff, could go either way, but I still want to see Luchasaurus betray Christian and finally become his own man-dinosaur. Not Jack Perry’s tag partner, not Christian’s henchman, but his own man doing his own stuff.

And as I said at the start, awesome Continental Classic matches. Bryan Danielson also being on commentary for these was a good move, that could easily be a thing he does after he retires, except I think part of retiring is staying home with the family. Anyway, Moxley VS Lethal was a great opening match, and I figured Moxley would win that. Maybe Lethal realizes he really has let Team Triple J weaken him with all their antics. Rush VS Briscoe then raised the bar, though with a somewhat scary moment where I thought Rush took a shot to the head but it was really a concern for his leg. Rush winning was a fair choice, and that puts pressure on a possible 0-2 VS 0-2, Lethal VS Briscoe in the next round. I say “possible” because Tony Khan doesn’t reveal the entire schedule at once.

And then just an awesome, borderline PPV level match of Swerve VS White. The fans were strongly behind Swerve, I was behind Swerve, so it’s great to see Swerve get to 2-0. Swerve’s becoming my top choice for Gold League and maybe even the entire thing. Swerve having the ROH World, NJPW Strong Openweight and the AEW Continental Championships, he could really do a lot with traveling between the three brands. Mogul Embassy is already in ROH given they’re ROH World Six Man Champions, and the Gates are in NJPW right now for World Tag League, so Swerve joining them pretty much everywhere, all four of them having belts, that’s great stuff to me.

My Score: 9/10
