Bobby Fish VS CM Punk!

The Infamous One crossed the line against Anthony Greene and it was the Best in the World who backed him off! But now, it’s quite the birthday bash for both men! Will Fish prove there’s a new Best in the World? Or will it be #ClobberinTime as Punk makes his Dynamite in-ring debut?

The bell rings and fans fire up as the two circle. They feel things out but then Fish bails out as fans chant for Punk. Fish flexes, gets back in, and circles with Punk again. Punk throws a kick but Fish stays on his feet. Fish gives the kick back but Punk gets in for a clinch! Punk hits a headlock takeover, but Fish fights up to power out. Punk runs Fish over, covers, ONE! Punk facelocks, Fish pushes him into a corner, but the ref calls for the break. Fish kicks low and kicks the leg out! Fish snapmares, wraps on a chinlock and leans on Punk as he squeezes tight. Fans rally, Punk fights up but Fish clinches for knees to put Punk back in the corner. But Punk turns it around to give knees in return!

Punk snapmares and drops an elbow! Punk wraps a chinlock on now and grinds Fish. Fish fights up, powers out but Punk runs him over. Things speed up, Fish hurdles but Punk scoops and SLAMS him! Punk smirks and fans fire up as he brings Fish around for another scoop and SLAM! Fans want that “One More Time!” so Punk brings Fish around to scoop and SLAM again! Cover, ONE! Fish flounders to a corner, Punk runs in to SHINING WIZARD! But Fish slips around to fireman’s carry, only for Punk to slip out and fireman’s carry! Fish grabs the rope, throws some elbows, so Punk lets him down. Fish throws knees and strikes then KICKS the leg out!

Fish snapmares Punk near the ropes, then goes out to slingshot senton back in! Cover, TWO! Fish drags Punk up by an ear, the ref reprimands, but Fish throws more knees. Fish snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Fish keeps Punk down with a chinlock and full mount. Punk endures, moves around, fights up to his feet and powers out, but Fish holds ropes. Punk clotheslines Fish out of the ring! Punk builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and Fish hits railing! Fans fire up and even Punk admits he wasn’t sure that was going to work out. Punk drags Fish up and into the ring, climbs up the corner, but Fish goes to the apron and out of the ring. Punk hops down, but Fish sweeps the legs!

Fish catches his breath while Punk clutches his leg. Fish gets in the ring from the other side and waits for Punk to get in. Fish then runs in to CLOBBER Punk with an elbow! Cover, TWO! Fish drags Punk up, fans rally, but Fish wrenches to hit a BIG back suplex! Fish gets a leg to GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Fish KICKS the bad leg, gets it again for a KNEE JAMMER! Fish has a toehold, Punk CLUBS him but Fish ROCKS Punk with a forearm, GROUND DRAGON SCREW again! Punk hobbles up, Fish throws him out and then brings him up to throw into railing! Fish ROCKS Punk with heavy hands and another KICK!

The ring count climbs, Fish refreshes the count at 4 to bring Punk back up. Punk ROCKS Fish back, and now they throw forearms back and forth! Punk gets the edge but Fish KNEES low and hard! Fish puts Punk in at 6, stalks up behind Punk and runs in at the corner to KNEE Punk again! Fish throws hands and kicks away on the bad leg! Punk sits down but Fish keeps kicking, tot hen wrap the leg around ropes! The ref counts, Fish lets off at 4, and fans rally up as Fish drags Punk up by his ears. Fish throws more hands, hoists Punk to the top rope then throws more forearms. Fish CLUBS Punk on his back then climbs up to join Punk.

Punk throws hands back but Fish throws more forearms. Punk gives a flurry and Fish falls to the mat! Fans fire up as Punk adjusts on the top rope, balances on his one good leg and hits the MACHO ELBOW DROP! Both men are down and a standing count starts. Punk and Fish slowly sit up at 4, get to their knees and start throwing forearms! They go back and forth, Punk gets the edge and stands first to rain down on Fish! Punk hobbles, Fish KICKS that bad leg out! Fish has to catch his breath a moment, Punk ducks the roundhouse! Fish mule kicks, runs but into a CALF KICK! Fish staggers around but into a SWINGING NECKBREAKER!

Punk SHINING WIZARDS in the corner again, then reels Fish in for a LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Punk grits his teeth, clutching the bad leg again. Punk says night-night and he gets Fish back up. Fireman’s carry but Fish blocks the knee to DRAGON SCREW! Fish builds speed to SLIDING LARIAT! Fish brings Punk up, but Punk trips him to a jackknife! TWO as Fish bridges and spins around, but Punk powers up to a fireman’s carry! G T S!! But it’s the bad leg so Punk crawls to the cover, Fish kicks out but at 3.1! Punk wins!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall

That was one gritty, knock down, drag out fight! But in the end, the Best in the World is still CM Punk, and CM Punk is still undefeated in AEW. Will things only get tougher for Punk the deeper he goes into the roster?

 

Malakai Black speaks.

“I made your whole family lose faith in you. I divided the entire Nightmare Family. I forced you to take measures that you’d never taken before. And I made an entire crowd HATE you. If you think this was about pinfalls, Rhodes, think again. The house always wins.” Is round three not the end of this war between the Dark Father and the American Nightmare?

 

MJF w/ Wardlow & Shawn Spears VS Bryce Donovan!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman has talked enough trash, now he’s getting back in the ring to back some of it up. Will having The Pinnacle’s Mr. Mayhem and The Chair Man be a big help in staying on top?

The bell rings MJF wants to take a moment to offer Bryce a handshake. Fans know better but Bryce doesn’t, he takes the handshake and MJF kicks him low! MJF brings Bryce along to WRING him out into the buckles! And then MJF throws Bryce to the apron, slashes the throat and hits the HEATSEEKER! One finger cover, MJF wins!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall

Well, he didn’t even need his back-up for that one. Spears gets MJF the mic and then throws Bryce out. MJF has them cut his music and then says, “Wow, Boston. This place is exactly as I remember it from last time: An absolute sh*t hole. But guess what? You’re lucky, Mass, you got to see me do what I do best, and that’s pinning shoulders on mats and bangin’ rats.” But MJF will skip that latter part since he’d rather put his junk in a blender than go anywhere near the “disgusting fat women” of Boston! Here’s his impression of their moms. “Hada, MJF, hada!” Their accents are disgusting to him. And speaking of disgusting: Darby Allin!

Oh, Boston likes Darby, huh? They do chant for him. Makes sense. This town loves to cheer losers. But Darby, you made a mistake interrupting MJF when he said he deserves to be AEW World Champion, which is true. And to make things worse, Darby threw the gauntlet down in saying MJF couldn’t break him mentally. Well that’s funny considering Darby is too scared to show up for work now. Uh, he’s hurt cuz of what The Pinnacle did but okay… Boston also tells MJF what they think of him, aka he’s an A-hole, but he says he can’t hear them over all the money he makes.

But MJF would be scared, too, considering he knocked out Darby’s “Creepy papi,” Sting with the beautiful Dynamite Diamond Ring. The same ring that MJF won over two years ago when he beat Hangman Adam Page! “The more you know~.” It’s almost like now that the dumb shmuck, Darby Allin, is out of MJF’s hair, there’s nothing MJF stopping him from his destiny. MJF doesn’t care about Full Gear. Kenny, Adam, it doesn’t matter, because you’re looking at the future world champion! MJF is the past, the present and the future- SHUT YOUR MOUTHS, BOSTON! But wait! Here comes the snow, the crow and… it’s a prank by MJF!

And he laughs so hard. Spears, you’re so smart! Boston is so stupid! Okay, okay, listen up. Wait. Now the lights go down again and MJF thinks this is Spears tricking him. No, this wasn’t Spears’ idea. On the titantron plays a new video message from Darby! There’s a fake MJF wearing a cheap suit, wig and fake beard, and a cut-out of MJF’s face. Fake MJF flips off a rapper during his own concert, only to turn around into Darby’s SHOTGUN dropkick! And then they BODY SLAM fake MJF through a table! Then it reads, “Now time to break YOU physically.” And the lights in the arena return, Sting SMACKS Spears with the bat! Sting JABS Wardlow and MJF runs away!

Sting keeps after Wardlow, and The Invisible Man in the crowd takes off the mask to reveal it’s DARBY! MJF turns around and wants mercy, but then he runs away! Spears takes a shot from Darby in his place, and Darby whips Spears into the steps! Darby puts Spears in the ring and fans are thunderous as he brings out a skateboard. It doesn’t have the wheels or trucks but it has THUMBTACKS in it! Sting JABS Spears down with the bat, then CRACKS Wardlow! Darby SMACKS Wardlow with the spiked board! MJF says this is BS but he’s the one staying away on the stage! Darby gets a mic now and tells Max, “Full Gear.” Plain and simple, the score will be settled on PPV!

 

Backstage interview with Britt Baker.

Tony Schiavone says we’re in the Halloween spirit with the AEW Women’s World Champion and her sidekicks, Rebel and Jamie Hayter, as Britt prepares for her match at Full Gear. That is, if Britt is still world champion by that time. Britt is offended by Schiavone using “If,” but it would seem that on the Cruise of Jericho, Britt had a match with Abadon that she completely walked out on. Therefore, Tony Khan has decided for this Friday’s edition of Rampage, it will be a Trick or Treat match, Britt VS Abadon, and the treat is: if Abadon wins, she gets a future title match with Britt Baker! And what’s the trick?! Well, it’s that it is No Disqualifications.

Oh, No DQ? Well Britt has a couple of tricks of her own. Wink wink, nudge nudge, Rebel and Jamie will help her. So see you Friday, Abby. Yours Truly, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. But will even her back-up be too afraid to get close to the Living Dead Girl?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Sammy Guevara VS Ethan Page!

Things have escalated between the Inner Circle and the American Top Team/Men of the Year conglomerate that there will be a 10 Man Tag between them at Full Gear! That is, if the Spanish God retains this title against All Ego. Otherwise, Sammy must LEAVE the Inner Circle forever, completely nullifying the 5v5! However, to make sure this all goes down fair and square, there is a ringside ban on Scorpio Sky, American Top Team and the rest of the Inner Circle. Will it all fall apart right here? Or will Sammy make sure he and the Inner Circle have all the momentum in their corner going into faction warfare?

The introductions are made, Sammy leaves the belt behind to bold to the ring and tackle Ethan! Sammy rains down furious fists and the ref wants this to hold on a minute! Ethan shoves Sammy away but Sammy comes back with a JUMP KNEE! Ethan tumbles out of the ring and fans fire up for Sammy as he KNEES Ethan back down! Sammy builds speed to FLY! Direct hit with the tornillo and Boston is all fired up! Sammy brings Ethan up to TOSS him into the timekeeper’s area! Sammy jumps in to rain down more fists, then he drags the table out of the way so he can bring Ethan around and throw him into railing! Sammy brings Ethan up again and fans are loving this!

Sammy whips Ethan into more railing, then he tells Ethan this is what he wanted! Sammy drags Ethan up and into the ring and Ethan wants a timeout! Sammy gets in, the ref checks on Ethan, the bell rings! Sammy runs but into a BOOT! Ethan and Sammy throw forearms back and forth, Ethan gets the edge! “I’m the man!” Ethan whips Sammy but Sammy reverses, hurdles, flips over and dropkicks Ethan down! And then hits that smooth kip up! Cover, ONE! Sammy drags Ethan back up to CHOP him to a corner. Sammy brings Ethan in to snap suplex, cover, ONE! Ethan is tough but Sammy sits him up and KICKS him in the back.

Tony Nese watches from the front row like he did Saturday as Sammy covers again. ONE, Nese isn’t impressed, but Sammy CHOPS Ethan again. Ethan throws a haymaker but Sammy ROCKS Ethan with forearms. They brawl, Ethan knees low and puts Sammy in the corner to CHOP! Sammy is stinging but he throws a forearm and a CHOP in return! Sammy puts Ethan in the corner, digs his palms into Ethan’s face, but lets off as the ref reprimands. Ethan kicks low then ROCKS Sammy with another forearm. Ethan whips, Sammy reverses and reels Ethan in to back suplex and KICK out of the air! And then SUPERKICK!

Fans fire up with Sammy as he goes to the corner and climbs up. Ethan hurries and hits the ropes to trip Sammy up! Ethan throws hands, keeps Sammy up top, but Sammy hits back. Ethan headbutts Sammy, brings him up, TOP ROPE BACKBREAKER! Sammy hits the crossbar then tumbles to the floor! Ethan gloats as AEW goes picture in picture.

Sammy writhes, Ethan goes out and fetches him to throw him into railing! Payback for before the match officially started! Ethan then drags Sammy up and scoops to SNAKE EYES off the apron! Ethan puts Sammy in the ring, stalks him, then brings him up. Sammy throws body shots, forearms, and CHOPS! Sammy whips, Ethan reverses and BACK DROPS Sammy across the ring! Sammy is in a daze and Ethan shows off the dancing pecs before Ethan stands on Sammy’s head. Ethan even pulls on an arm, but the ref counts. Ethan lets off at 4 and mocks the counting, to then drag Sammy up and scoop for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!

Ethan scowls as he looms over Sammy and stomps him down. Ethan pie faces Sammy as AEW returns to single picture, and he also eggs Sammy on. Sammy drags himself up but Ethan DECKS him with a forearm! Fans rally up, Ethan pretends he can’t hear them, but Sammy hits back with forearms! Ethan knees low, gets Sammy up to a Canadian Rack then crucifix but Sammy slips out! Sammy ducks and dodges to LARIAT! And back elbow! Sammy whips, Ethan reverses but Sammy slides to dodge and RAMS into him at the corner! Sammy goes to the apron to ENZIGURI! Ethan staggers, Sammy takes aim and triangle jumps for the SUPER CUTTER!

Ethan flounders to a corner and fans fire up with Sammy! Sammy runs but into a BOOT! Ethan runs but into a STANDING SPANISH FLY! Cover, TWO!! Ethan flops out of the ring and a ring count begins. Sammy goes out the side, fans fire up as he climbs again, SUPER SHOOTING STAR PRESS!! Direct hit and fans lose their minds while both men are down! Sammy drags Ethan up and into the ring and “This is Awesome!” Sammy slashes his throat, goes for the torture rack but Ethan fights with elbows and then ROCKS Sammy with a forearm! Ethan runs but into an elbow, Sammy goes up to get a BACK HAND! ICONOCLASM, and then a scoop to POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!

Ethan drags Sammy to a drop zone and goes up the corner. Sammy stands up and springs up to the top! Ethan fights him then scoops Sammy for a SUPER SLAM! Sammy flounders to a corner, Ethan runs in to CLOBBER him with the shoulder tackle! Cover, TWO! Sammy survives but Ethan snarls. Ethan drags Sammy up but Sammy flops down as dead weight. Ethan grins as he puts Sammy on the top rope. Ethan climbs up to hook Sammy’s arms for an elevated crucifix, SUPER STEINER! Sammy runs Ego’s Edge into his own move! STANDING SHOOTING FLOP as Ethan moves! Ethan reels Sammy in but Sammy trips him up to a jackknife, Sammy wins!!

Winner: Sammy Guevera, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

But Ethan attacks from behind like a sore loser! They brawl more, and here comes Scorpio now that the ringside ban is off! Scorpio throws Sammy down, rains down fists, but here comes CHRIS JERICHO! Le Champion is back, and he’s here with the rest of the Inner Circle! They run The Men of the Year off and fans sing along with Judas. Jericho gets a mic to say, “Well of course, the Jackasses of the Year try to pull an ambush on Sammy Guevara after his big win tonight. But at least Scorpio Sky, at least you’ve beaten Le Champion twice. I respect that. But Ethan Page, let’s be honest. The last thing you’ve beaten of any prominence is yourself in your hotel room last night.”

Fans chant “Beat Your Meat!” but Scorpio defends Ethan did no such thing. But the most important thing is Sammy won, so there will be a 5v5 match at Full Gear on November 13th! Page, Sky, American Top Team VS the reunited Inner Circle, baby! And by virtue of Tony Khan, this match is now gonna be a MINNEAPOLIS STREET FIGHT! So next week, they decide which members of American Top Team will be in the match, so please tell Dan Lambert, that “pumpkin headed dips*it,” to be there so they can decide who get kendo sticks up their backsides to make MMA meatsicles with!

And to finish off, Jericho will paraphrase the lyrics of one of the greatest rock songs of all time, Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith. “You talk about things nobody cares, you wearin’ all the things nobody wears. You called us out but let me make it clear as glass: at Full Gear, honey, we’re gonna kick your effin’ ass!” The Inner Circle stands triumphant tonight, but who do they call out to take down?

 

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson and Eddie Kingston.

Schiavone brings up that these two will battle on Friday’s Rampage in the semifinals of the World Title Eliminator Tournament. Kingston tells Bryan that he talked about hard work and that Kingston doesn’t work hard. Well he’ll tell you that every morning, he takes a pill of Zoloft so he doesn’t flip out and hurt someone. He battles depression, and anger, and who knows what’ll happen after that. But he ain’t trying to get locked up because he wants to live the dream. Don’t tell him about hard work until you’ve walked a mile in Kingston’s shoes, partner. And guess what? He’s done talking, and done listening. Excuse his back.

Kingston walks away, Bryan says that is the Kingston he wants to see and fight in the ring. That is the Kingston that has someone to believe in and fight for. Bryan hates to tell Kingston this, but HE’S been through it, too! He doesn’t complain about it! There are so many people in this country and this locker room who have been through that same crap and still go through it every single day and still go out there to put in the work. Bryan isn’t saying Kingston isn’t a hard worker, because every time Kingston’s in the ring, he works his ass off. Bryan gives Kingston this, too: Kingston and Moxley are the two toughest pro-wrestlers he’s ever met in his entire life!

And despite all of that, this Friday, Bryan will go out there and prove he’s the best. It doesn’t matter if Kingston listens or not, Bryan will beat him. Who moves on from the semifinals to fight at Full Gear?

 

Backstage interview with The Lucha Brothers.

Schiavone says it is great to see them both back, the AEW World Tag Team Champions have a challenge for FTR at Full Gear. Penta El Zero M asks to say something, and he takes the mic to call FTR out in Spanish. Alex Abrahantes wants to translate but Fenix speaks up first. “FTR, we know what you want. We will put these titles on the line at Full Gear.” Alex gets his turn and says the Lucha Brothers say, “FTR, you say you’re the best. You say you’re the greatest. But you have NO idea the sacrifices we’ve made to become the tag team champions. So at Full Gear, on November 13th, we’ll put the AEW World Tag Team Championships up on the line.” Because they are the Lucha Brothers and they have CERO MIEDO! Will the champions make sure FTR learn a lesson about what it truly means to be the best?

 

AEW TBS Championship Tournament Opening Round: Serena Deeb VS Hikaru Shida!

This may be the opener to the tournament to crown a new women’s champion, but this is also a rematch from when the Woman of 1000 Holds not only denied the Full Metal Warrior her 50th win, but cracked her over the head with the trophy! Will Deeb deny Shida again while also going for the gold? Or will Shida’s revenge be two birds with one Katana knee?

The bell rings and fans fire up as the two tie up. Deeb goes for a leg, Shida blocks but Deeb gets a facelock. Shida slips around to get her own facelock but Deeb fights up to trip Shida. Shida kicks Deeb away and they go again. Shida waistlocks, slams, then rains down rights! Deeb shoves her away but gets up into a BOOT! Fans rally and duel, Shida stomps Deeb in a corner. The ref counts, Deeb slips out to drag Shida to the corner. Deeb SLAMS the leg into the post, then SLAMS it again! Shida clutches the leg, Deeb grabs the legs again, but Shida pulls Deeb into the post! A ring count begins and reaches 5 of 10 while Deeb is still down. Shida has the count stop and goes out to fetch Deeb.

Shida puts Deeb on the apron, climbs up the corner and drags her up, to DEAD LIFT SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO! Shida fires up and fans fire up with her, but Deeb keeps Shida from climbing again. Shida bounces Deeb off the buckles, runs corner to corner and AEW goes picture in picture as Deeb dodges! Shida knees buckles, Deeb runs in to CHOP BLOCK the bad leg! Deeb steadies herself, drags Shida around and drops an elbow on the bad leg. Shida tries to fight back but Deeb thrashes the leg, then drops another elbow! Deeb pushes back on the toehold, Shida throws hands but Deeb cranks the hold harder. Deeb stands on the leg to stomp it!

Shida crawls to ropes, Deeb drags her into a corner and puts the leg on the ropes. Deeb kicks away but lets off as the ref counts. Deeb pulls on the leg, lets off again, then soaks up the heat while Shida sits down in the corner. Deeb drags Shida up, clinches, but Shida throws body shots to get free. Shida kicks but Deeb blocks to DDT the foot! Shida falls over, crawls but Deeb drags her around. Deeb has a standing toehold, Shida endures but kicks back with her free leg! Deeb lets go and shakes out the arm, but goes after the leg again, Shida SLAPS Deeb, Deeb SLAPS back! Deeb runs, into an ENZIGURI! Both women are down and a standing count begins.

Shida crawls to ropes, Deeb storms over and throws EuroUppers. Shida forearms in return, Deeb EuroUppers again, Shida fires off more forearms, backs Deeb down, and fans fire up! Shida whips Deeb corner to corner, runs in and KNEES Deeb! Shida keeps going, SLIDING FOREARM! Fans fire up with Shida and she climbs up again. Deeb stands, Shida leaps, MISSILE DROPKICK! Shida gets Deeb up, suplexes, stalls and SLAMS Deeb down! Cover, TWO! Shida says one more and she brings Deeb back in. Shida gets the Canadian Rack but Deeb slips off to EuroUpper! And again, but into a backslide! Deeb rolls through but Shida gets a straitjacket!

Deeb fights free, but Shida BOOTS the clothesline to AX KICK! Shida gets the arms, STRAITJACKET GERMAN! Then she drags Deeb up, Canadian Rack to DOMINATOR! Cover, TWO!! Deeb survives but Shida gets moving, BLINDSIDE TAMASHI!! Cover, TWO!!! Fans are thunderous as Shida takes aim. KATAN- NO! Deeb blocks the leg but Shida CLUBS her! Shida suplexes, but the bad leg holds her back! Deeb trips Shida for a GROUND DRAGON SCREW! Deeb drags Shida around but Shida boots her right out of the ring! Deeb has a tumble to the floor, Shida brings out a chair! Shida sets the chair up, runs but Deeb throws the chair away!

Shida pursues Deeb around the way, and uses the steel steps for a MISSILE DROPKICK! Shida clutches her bad leg but she still gets Deeb up and into the ring. Deeb slides back out but Shida goes after her. Deeb trips Shida and SLAMS the leg on the apron again and again! Deeb drags Shida to the corner and ties up the legs for a HANGING FIGURE FOUR! Shida endures, the ref counts, and Deeb lets go at 4! Deeb stalks Shida, gets the legs again, but figure four becomes inside cradle, TWO!! Deeb gets Shida up, but Shida slips out to QUESTION MARK KICK! Deeb staggers, POINT-BLANK KNEE! Shida runs, TAMASHI into a HALF CRAB!!

Deeb sits DEEP, Shida crawls, but Deeb drags her away, TRAILER HITCH!! Shida endures, reaches, and gets the ROPEBREAK! Fans are loving this as the ref counts. Deeb lets go at 4, snarls, and grabs the piece of the broken trophy! “This is Awesome!” but Shida KICKS Deeb first! Shida has the piece of the trophy but she hands it to the ref. Deeb rakes eyes! Cradle, TWO!! Deeb kicks low, reels Shida in and hooks the arms, but Shida fights to back drop! Sunset flip but prawn hold counter! SHIDA WINS!!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

And that’s 50!! But bigger than that, Shida is into the next round! But Deeb CHOP BLOCKS Shida! She’s a sore loser, and she gets the chair Shida brought out! Deeb aims and SMACKS the bad leg! And again! And then she JAMS away on the leg, then SMACKS the knee again! Deeb is incensed as she omoplatas and SMASHES the knee into the mat! SERENITY LOCK! More refs rush out but the damage has been done! Deeb lets go when Jerry Lynn storms out and tells her to stop. Shida may have won the match, but did Deeb just break the bracket by sidelining her? Or will Shida literally limp into her battle with the Native Beast next round?

 

Backstage interview with Lio Rush & Dante Martin.

Schiavone brings up the match on Rampage, these two debuting as a duo. However, an injury to Mike Sydal means there will be an audible in that match. It will instead be Dante Martin VS Matt Sydal 1v1 to complete the trilogy. Lio says it’s all about timing. It just wasn’t the right time for Mike Sydal, which Lio should’ve anticipated. This is just what to expect from a Sydal. But Lio’s debut will come at the right time, and when that time comes, you will know why he’s the Man of the Hour.

But enough about him. Friday, Dante VS Matt Sydal for the third time. And you better believe the third time is the charm, because Dante will have Lio in his corner, “not some washed up mentor who only cares about beating Dante instead of teaching Dante.” Friday, there will be a lesson learned, and the failed student will be Matt Sydal. Lio promises a lot from Dante, but will Dante be able to cash the check #LBOLio’s mouth writes?

 

AEW World Title Eliminator Tournament Opening Round: Preston Vance VS Jon Moxley!

Number 10 is running at 100% power, and he’s brought back the Joker mask! Fitting since he’s taking on the Maniac of AEW! But will Moxley keep his promise to beat down everyone in his path so he can get home to his baby girl in one piece? Or will Vance break a whole lot of brackets instead?

The bell rings, Moxley gets right around Vance and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Vance ends up in a corner, Moxley stomps away, but lets off at 4 to get in the ref’s face. Moxley goes back for Vance but Vance fights the suplex and elbows free. Vance runs in but is put on the apron, and Moxley DECKS him with a forearm! Moxley goes out, brings Vance around and RAMS him into steel steps! Moxley tears at the mask and then BITES Vance’s face!! Moxley drags Vance up to POST him! Moxley gets back in the ring and paces around as the ring count climbs. Fans are fired up and Moxley gets impatient. Vance manages to get in at 7 but he is busted open!

Moxley runs in but Vance elbows him away! Vance fires off forearms, CHOPS and a ROLLING ELBOW! Vance goes side to side to BOOT Moxley in the corner! And then the other way, into Moxley’s LARIAT! Moxley rains down fists on the wound he made on Vance’s head, then get shim up, PARADIGM SHIFT!! Cover, Moxley wins!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

And as quickly as he handled business, Moxley takes his leave! Will Moxley do the same to Orange Cassidy in the next round?

 

Backstage interview with FTR.

Schiavone brings up the challenge made for Full Gear, and Cash Wheeler says that they’ve waited almost an entire year to get back their AEW World Tag Team Championships. And of course they accept the challenge, they’ve waited too long as others “babysat” the titles. Papi’s home and they’re taking the titles back. Tully Blanchard says everyone knows what a reset is. These two and Tully hit the reset button. “Those guys don’t have any idea what’s coming down the pike.” Dax Harwood agrees and says Penta and Fenix do a lot of cute things in the air and all, but there’s one thing they’ll do what they’ve never done before: Fight.

They’re going to make the Lucha Brothers fight for their lives and the AEW World Tag Team Championships. And in the end of the night, FTR will go down as the absolute best tag team of all time! Y’know what they say: Living legends are a dying breed, but FTR aren’t feeling too good themselves. #TopGuysOut.

 

Cody Rhodes is here!

Fans are booing the American Nightmare already as he rises from his special entrance in the middle of the stage. Arn Anderson is with him, and Cody will speak on his victory over Malakai Black after AEW’s picture in picture break.

Cody throws his jacket to the crowd as a free souvenir, then he and Arn get in the ring. Cody gets the mic, but AEW goes to a full break first.

AEW returns and fans are still booing. Cody says, “Whether you believe it or not, I hear you. I hear you online, I hear old wrestling managers shouting at clouds on social media, and I heard you this Saturday.” He had one of the best, Malakai Black, hooked the arms, and then he’d hit the Tiger Driver just as Excalibur called. “But for a brief moment, for a glimmer, I thought about hitting a very different move. And what would happen if I hit that move? Would I have popped up? Would I have sneered? Would I have abused my Executive Vice President role? Would I have broken the covenant between you and I, challenged for the world title and won the world championship?”

Cody wants us to know why he didn’t. Because it’d be too easy. No, no, not the matches. The matches would be hard, but that’d be the easy way out. Fans have the right to do whatever they want. They can cheer, they can boo, but if they’re going to boo the narrative, boo the real narrative. No one has a problem with the man who signs the checks, but please don’t forget the man who built the bank. And please do Cody a favor. It’s not in his nature, put yourselves in his shoes. And he throws away his custom Nike! Cody wants us to think about it! He grew up in front of us! He debuted at age 20, no kneepads, no muscles.

Cody admits he has a wife that’s too hot for him and a brother that bell to bell is a Hall of Famer, surely better than Cody. He has a daughter that he barely deserves and a father that even if Cody lived to be 300 years old, he’d not leave behind the legacy that he did. So the “easy way out” for Cody is not the way he’s going to do this. Cody will not turn. And the reason is simple, and he isn’t pandering, but he loves the fans too much, just as he’s loved them his entire life. So if anyone thought that maybe he got a little Hollywood, then allow him to apologize to each and every fan out there. He apologizes to the Nightmare Family, up and down the line, and even to Arn Anderson.

Cody puts a hand on Arn’s shoulder as he says, “If I’ve never told you, let me tell you right now. It is a damn honor to stand in the ring with you.” He apologizes, shakes Arn’s hand and says Arn was right. But Andrade El Idolo walks out now, and says, “Cody, Cody, Cody. Who do you think you are? Cody, these people don’t like you! The people don’t like me, but the difference is, I don’t care about the people!” Andrade says Cody made stupid choices. First, that stupid neck tattoo. Second, getting in Andrade’s business. Look at him! He IS Andrade El Idolo! Cody dares Andrade to get in the ring but Andrade wants him to hold on.

If Cody wants, Andrade can make Cody “my little bitch.” But then lights go out! And when they come back up, MALAKAI BLACK is by Andrade’s side! BLACK MIST!! Arn goes after Andrade’s assistant, Jose, while Andrade and Malakai stomp Cody down! Andrade then goes after Arn! Jose clubs away on Arn with his clipboard, but here comes PAC! Pac dumps Andrade out then BOOTS Malakai! Andrade gets back in but Pac dodges to sobat, kick and KICK! Pac runs to BOOT Andrade down! Andrade and Malakai bail out and regroup but Pac builds speed, only for Andrade, Malakai and Jose to retreat! Pac calls Malakai out by sitting cross legged and flipping him off! Has the American Nightmare found an unlikely ally in The British Bastard?

 

8 Man Tag: The Dark Order VS The Elite!

Halloween comes a little early as these factions dress up for this 4v4 showdown! Lone Ranger Evil Uno, “Kratos” Grayson, Colt Cutler and Johnny Bambi head to the ring while Anna Jay, Alan Angels and Alex Reynolds keep an eye on the “horse” Uno rode in on. Meanwhile, the Elite become the GHOSTBUSTERS! And they cross the streams! Also, Michael Nakazawa is a big “BAYBAY” and Cutler is the Stay Puft marshmallow man. But will having a team costume be enough for Adam Cole, Kenny Omega & the Young Bucks to exorcise the Dark Order here tonight? Or will there be human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria?!

The teams sort out and Cole starts with John Silver. They circle, they tie up, and Silver shoves Cole down! Bambi’s friggin’ jacked, baby! Cole ties up with him again but Silver shoves him down again! Cole kicks low, throws hands, stomps him in a corner, then flexes back. But Silver fires off KICKS in return! Silver puts the hood back up to ANTLER HEADBUTT! Silver whips, Cole bounces off buckles and into a BACK DROP! Silver mocks the BOOM! Then he brings Cole over and Uno tags in. Uno CLUBS Cole, wrenches but Cole rakes eyes! Tag to Omega, who is still wearing his proton pack. Omega throws haymakers but Uno hits back!

Uno ROCKS Omega, whips him corner to corner and Omega’s proton pack only adds to the pain of hitting buckles! Uno says YEEHAW and he runs corner to corner to SPLASH into the pack! Omega was one step ahead! Omega throws Uno out, the ref is busy with the Dark Order as they protest, and Nakazawa gives Uno a BIG BABY SPLASH! It’s mostly a padded costume, though… Nick Jackson puts Uno in for Omega to mock the Dark Order pose as he covers. TWO, and Omega laughs as he tags in Matt Jackson. Matt throws hands, Uno ends up in a corner and Matt whips him. Uno reverses, Matt goes up and over and things speed up, but Uno sweeps the legs!

Uno hops on and rides Matt like a rodeo bull! He doesn’t hold on for 8 seconds but he does BOOT Matt down! Fans chant “COWBOY SH*T” for him as he tags in Stu. Stu tags in Silver then runs in to SPLASH! Silver runs in to clothesline, then Uno adds his! Colt Cabana runs up, to give Matt some cold spray to the face! The Elite protests but this is all karma coming back to haunt them! Colt keeps spraying even though Matt staggers away, and Uno scoops to SLAM Matt down! The Dark Order poses, what a family portrait moment. But the rest of the Elite get in, only for the Dark Order to kick them all low. TRIPLE SCOOP SLAMS! And then another pose!

Things sort out as AEW goes picture in picture and Colt throws hands on Matt. Colt bumps Matt off buckles, tags in Stu and he brings Matt around. Matt throws hands, Stu CLUBS him then suplexes, but Matt slips out. Matt ducks and dodges, Cole tags in but Stu dodges Matt to springboard TORNADO DDT! Cole gets in to BOOT Stu down! Cole kicks Stu out, distracts the ref and Nick goes out to PENALTY KICK Stu down! Nick and Omega hug it out and then Matt stomps Stu for good measure. Cole goes out to put Stu in the ring, then he brings Stu over to tag Omega. They mug Stu, Omega throws hands and JABS in the corner. Omega JABS away then stomps Stu down!

The ref counts as Omega digs his boots in but Omega lets off to walk it off. He bumps Stu off buckles, tags Nick, then Nick stomps away on Stu. Tag to Matt, the Elite blow up the Dark Order corner, and then Matt whips Nick in, only for Stu to throw him out! Stu throws Matt out, but the Bucks and Omega coordinate for a DOUBLE GIRI KNEE COMBO! Omega tags Cole in, they bring Stu up and Cole points to the corner. Omega goes over but there’s no Dark Order to hit. Oh, this was just so Cole could put Stu in the camel clutch and set things up with the Bucks. The Bucks run the ropes while Omega plays defense, and the Bucks give Cole the SUPER KISS!

They let Stu go, Nick does his Macho Man, and then Cole drags Stu to the corner. Cole stomps Stu, Matt tags in and then he tags Nick. The Bucks stomp Stu as AEW returns to single picture. They double whip Stu to a corner, Nick runs in but Stu elbows him away! Stu BOOTS Matt, dodges Omega’s back elbow and KNEES Cole off the apron! Stu goes up to step on each of the Bucks to get to Omega with the FLYING RANA! The Bucks aim but Stu goes Matrix to avoid the Superkicks to DOUBLE PELE! Fans fire up and Stu crawls for his corner! Hot tag to Colt Cabana! Cabana dodges the clotheslines to DOUBLE QUEBRADA! And a FLYING APPLE for Omega!

Colt fires off JAB after JAB for the Bucks! Flip, flop, fly, BIONIC ELBOW for Omega! Colt tilt-o-whirls and headscissors Matt into Nick, then he sweeps the legs to make Nick DDT Matt! SUPERMAN CLUTCH! But Cole breaks the cover! Cole whips, Colt reverses and runs in, FLYING APPLE! SUPERKICK from Nick! Silver tags in, he whips but Nick holds ropes. Silver runs in but Nick sends him out. Nick elbows Silver away then goes to the corner, but Silver GAMANGIRIS him down! CANNONBALL for Cole! UPPERCUT for Omega! BOOT for Matt! LARIAT for big baby Nakamura! Silver gets in the ring and Nick is on the ropes to get a BOOT and GERMAN SUPLEX!

Nick flounders up but Cole and Matt get in! SUPERKICKS for Silver! Nick tags Matt, Omega and Cole also get in. SNAP DRAGON to the TRIPE SUPERKICK GHOSTBUSTER!!! Cover, Stu breaks it!!! SUPERKICK for Stu! Nick kicks at Uno but he blocks it and sends it into Omega! Uno then gets around to block another kick and hands it to the ref for the NECKBREAKER! Cole SUPERKICKS Uno, Colt DECKS Cole, Omega V-TRIGGERS Colt! Silver returns, he dodges Omega to ENZIGURI! Matt SUPERKICKS Silver! Matt aims at Stu but Stu ducks, SUPERKICK to the ref!! Matt realizes what went wrong and Stu throws knees! Stu torture racks but Matt slips out to LOW BLOW!

Matt says he’s too smart, but he doesn’t realize Colt, Uno and Silver are stalking up behind him. But then the rest of the Elite LOW BLOW them! The proton packs are reintroduced, the Elite put them on and it’s time to “cross the streams.” QUADRUPLE PROTON PACK ATTACK! Colt is the only one left in the ring, the packs are piled up, QUADRUPLE BOMB onto the packs!!! Colt writhes and now Cutler wants in. Wait, wait, wait! The horse from earlier is galloping out here? He gets up on the apron with Angels and Reynolds, but the Elite knock Angels and Reynolds down! The horse gets in the ring and tries to explain something, but Matt LOW BLOWS him!

The Elite set up, QUADRUPLE B T E TRIGGER! The horse mask is removed, and it’s BRANDON CUTLER?!?! But if he’s been the Dark Order’s hostage, than who’s the marshmallow man…? The Dark Order drags out Omega, Cole and Nick to RAM them into railing! Matt is confused, and the marshmallow man is HANGMAN!! Matt realizes it as he turns around, LARIAT!! Fans are going nuts, Stu climbs up and ARIHARA MOONSAULTS onto the rest of the Elite! And lands on his feet! Omega gets in but gets a DEADEYE!! Silver gets in, he and Hangman set up, torture rack and airplane spinout bomb!! Cover, the ref is back and counts, THE DARK ORDER WINS!!

Winners: The Dark Order, by pinfall

Talk about trick or treat! The trick was in the costume, and the treat is that the Elite taste defeat! But will things taste even sweeter when the Cowboy takes the world title from the Cleaner?


My Thoughts:

What an awesome night right here! For one, a lot of great set-up for Rampage and even next week’s Dynamite. I am glad that Abadon is getting her part with Britt Baker and the women’s world title. A No DQ match is definitely one way to have Britt’s sidekicks interact and be scared by Abadon when she no sells whatever they do, but I’m sure Britt finds a way to win so she doesn’t owe someone a title match before Full Gear. Because if she does lose, I doubt she loses the title to Abadon. I’m still thinking it’ll be Thunder Rosa taking that title off Britt. Could’ve happened a lot sooner but hey, as long as that’s the end goal.

Meanwhile, Cody’s promo really blurred the lines of kayfabe and shoot, mostly with how he said he’d never turn. And Andrade became a “Heel who makes good points” with his response. But naturally, this set up more with this team-up of Andrade and Malakai and likewise, Pac and Cody. Andrade VS Cody is going to be really good, with a weird reversal where the Heel is going to be cheered. I’d love to see them give us Pac VS Malakai, too. Haven’t seen that since Tommy End’s debut in WWE for the UK special years ago. Then of course, there will be a tag match, Malakai & Andrade VS Pac & Cody. If the payoff isn’t Cody actually turning, I feel like this will be for naught.

We got really good promos from the Lucha Bros and FTR, though I’m a little disappointed this isn’t going to be Winners Take All. I don’t know if FTR become dual champions but that would be pretty big for them. Bryan and Kingston have really good promos to hype up their match, and Lio Rush has a good promo in light of the tag match having to change. I’m thinking Lio cheats for Dante behind his back to help Dante win against Matt Sydal. MJF of course squashes the rando, but all the promo stuff was really good. Moxley VS Vance was fast but also brutal. I didn’t think Vance would get busted open, and maybe the Joker mask was brought back just to get torn up.

Fish VS Punk was great stuff, especially to open the night. Sammy VS Ethan was also great, but naturally Sammy won to stay in the Inner Circle and keep things going towards Full Gear. Pretty sure they didn’t need a week to decide the American Top Team members. Well, maybe the other two, because number one will surely be Jorge Masvidal given he’s hit Jericho with the knockout knee twice already. Making it a Street Fight was probably a good move, too, so that the MMA guys don’t have to worry about all the little rules pro-wrestling has. And there can be interference from Dan Lambert and immediate karma on Dan Lambert, too.

Deeb VS Shida was awesome stuff that really built off their previous match. Shida gets her 50th but that damage Deeb did to her, they could easily kayfabe it as Shida is out of the tournament. Then maybe Nyla gets yet another bye to face the winner of Kris Statlander VS Ruby Soho. And there was so much to love in the Halloween costume 8 Man Tag. There were subtle hints of dysfunction in The Elite because both Omega and Cole have combos with The Bucks and they were kinda passive aggressively getting in each other’s way. Then there was the great twist at the end with Hangman being the marshmallow man. Omega VS Hangman is only getting better, the next two weeks will definitely be big in the math.

My Score: 9.3/10

Christian Cage speaks.

“Welcome to Collision. Welcome to the one year anniversary of Collision.

8 Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS Rocky Romero, Lio Rush & TMDK!

Jon Moxley is still IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, Wheeler Yuta is still ROH Pure Champion, and both Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli are still bad, bad men! The BCC is looking to still be the baddest group around, but will they be rolling on towards Forbidden Door? Or will Azucar, The Bad Child and the NEW Undisputed NJPW Tag Team Champions prove they’re just a little bit badder?

The ref has to keep The BCC back and that lets the whole team beat up on Bryan!

Rocky taunts Yuta, goes back to Bryan, and brings Bryan around to snapmare. Rocky clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Bryan down. Bryan endures, fights up, but Rocky becomes a backpack!

Claudio powers Lio around to TOSS into the DEATH RIDER!! Cover, BCC wins!

Winners: Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

The BCC defend homefield in AEW, and we’re just two weeks away from Forbidden Door! Moxley then gets the mic to say, “Tetsuya Naito of NJPW is a survivor, but The Forbidden Door is the final conflict. This is it. This is your last chance. I’m not coming to beat you,  Naito. I’m not coming to defend the IWGP Championship. I’m coming to Forbidden Door to put an end to Tetsuya Naito once and for all! Naito, I’m coning to Forbidden Door to finish you, to finish your career, to put you in a pine box, to put you in the ground, and to BURY your ass once and for all!!” A powerful ultimatum with still two weeks to go, will the Maniac also be the man that retires Naito?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Youngstown, Ohio, please welcome The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn! The fans fire up as Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass make their way to the ring. Schiavone lets Caster have the mic, and he says usually the Acclaimed comes out here with a rap, some punchlines, but tonight, if you didn’t see, but the “love” EVPs, the Young F’s…! Well, those guys issued a $5 THOUSAND FINE on them for disparaging company executives!? There was a tweet about it! Seems these EVPs are outta touch with the fans! Youngstown confirms!

Caster says the fans don’t want a couple of women’s business suit wearing a-holes! They want Platinum Max roasting everyone! They want Bowens & Billy hitting the scissor fingers, and you bet they want The Acclaimed to become the NEW AEW World Tag team Champions! And if Bowens was The Bucks, he wouldn’t focus the pettiness on raps and tweets, but on the fact that they will be face to face with The Acclaimed for the first time in four years. And this isn’t the same team they faced before in 2020. They are not an upstart! They have the same exact accolades as The Bucks do! Scissor King, Platinum Max, FORMER AEW World Tag Team Champions, FORMER AEW World Trios Champions, the WINNINGEST team in the history of AEW!!

And all they have to get the titles back is beat The Bucks twice. So do your worst! FINE them, but all they want is to get those titles back, get this company back, and prove that EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! In fact, forget fines! Take those fines, stick ’em up your virgin asses, because everyone here is gonna kick it old school for you! YO! YO! YO! LISTEN~! But then someone says NOOOO~! And it’s Brandon Cutler! He tells The Acclaimed to listen! This one year anniversary of Collision is to be a night of praise for the EVPs! They’ve carried this show since day one! But these limp noodles use their public platform to disparage!

So if they want a fine? FINE! Here’s a $10 THOUSAND fine! Then it’ll be $15- Christopher Daniels comes out here to stop Cutler. The Acclaimed had Daniels’ back, so here’s some good news. Tony Khan has REVERSED the fines, they get their money back! And Cutler, we don’t need to hear any more from you. But Cutler shows his clipboard to Daniels. Daniels SMACKS Cutler with the clipboard! Then DECKS him with his fist! Daniels TOSSES Cutler in for The Acclaimed to handle! They trip him up, hold him open, and Bowens goes up to say, SCISSOR ME TIMBERS~! Cutler crawls away in shame, but will The Bucks make sure The Acclaimed pay for that on Wednesday?

 

No Disqualifications: Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo!

La Mera Mera tried to be an ally to The Virtuosa against their common enemy, but the only thing they had in common was that they wanted to be the one to take down Toni Storm. That made them into enemies, and it has escalated to this! With nothing holding these two back, who stops at nothing to make sure the other regrets ever showing up in AEW?

Deonna doesn’t wait, she attacks while Rosa’s on the corner! The bell rings and Deonna puts Rosa in the Tree of Woe. Deonna runs in, but Rosa sits up! Deonna slides out of the ring, and Rosa CROSSBODIES down onto her! Rosa fires off hands, then POSTS Deonna! The fans rally behind Rosa and she CHOPS Deonna against the apron. Rosa SMACKS Deonna off the steel steps, then off them again, and then again! Rosa stands on Deonna, Deonna pushes her away, and Rosa starts bringing out stuff from under the ring! A chain, a trash can, and the lid! Rosa SMACKS Deonna with the lid! And then pushes the lid into Deonna with a boot!

The fans want tables but Rosa runs up first. Deonna dodges, Rosa dropkicks the steps! Deonna drags Rosa up, puts an arm between steps and post, then BOOTS the steps! Rosa falls back, clutching the elbow! Deonna snarls, goes looking under the ring, and she brings out a kendo stick! Deonna throws that all the way over the ring, but she gets some chairs. Deonna wedges a chair in a corner, then gets Rosa up. Rosa reverses the whip but Deonna stops herself! Deonna kicks and whips, but Rosa stops. Rosa ELBOWS Deonna, fireman’s carries, then DEATH VALLEY DRIVERS! Cover, TWO! Deonna stays in this but Rosa goes looking for more!

Rosa brings out a TABLE! Youngstown cheers as Rosa gets that big thing up, only for Deonna to DROPKICK it into her! The fans boo but Deonna soaks up the heat, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Deonna drags the table up for herself, and she puts that in the ring. Deonna drags Rosa up, wrenches, then kicks Rosa. Deonna hammerlocks an arm before she POSTS Rosa! And then she hammerlocks and POSTS Rosa again! Rosa clutches the side of her face, but there’s no blood, yet. Deonna gets Rosa in the ring, then drags her over to snapmare by the table. Deonna steps over Rosa to trap the arms, then turns her over so she can dribble Rosa’s head onto the wood! Deonna lets off and Rosa flops over. Cover, TWO! Rosa is tougher than that but Deonna keeps her cool as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and the two fight over a chair. Deonna JAMS Rosa up, takes a swing, but Rosa dodges! Rosa BOOTS the chair into Deonna! Then Rosa grabs the chair to JAM Deonna, and SMACK her on the back! And SMACK her again! Rosa brings Deonna around, fireman’s carries, and SAMOAN DROPS her on the folded table! Cover, TWO! Deonna is still in this but Rosa drags her around to put in a corner. Rosa hoists Deonna up top, goes up after her, but Deonna fights with body shots! Rosa CLUBS Deonna in return, but Deonna slips under! Rosa rains down fists, so Deonna YANKS her into the buckle! CHEEKY NANDOS!

Rosa falls into the Tree of Woe, Deonna runs up and this time, she RAMS into Rosa! Rosa falls out of the Tree, Deonna covers, TWO!! Rosa survives that Spear of Woe or whatever you’d call it, and the fans rally up. Deonna drags Rosa up, slashes her throat, and then Gotch lifts, but Rosa fights that! Rosa wrenches out to FULL METAL DDT!! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives hitting steel but Rosa won’t let up. Rosa brings Deonna over to a corner, and puts the trash can around her! The fans cheer as Rosa stomps away on Deonna! Deonna sits down, Rosa grabs the table and she brings that around. The fans cheer as it’s finally set up!

Rosa SMACKS the can with the chain! Then Rosa finishes setting the table up, to use it as a ramp! FLYING SHOTGUN into the trash can!! The fans are thunderous for that unique use of a table, and then Rosa covers Deonna, TWO!?!? Deonna survives the savage innovation, but Rosa won’t give up just yet. Rosa completely stands the table up now, but Deonna has a chair! She slide sit at Rosa, the table falls over, but Rosa JAMS Deonna up with it! Rosa reels Deonna in, underhooks, but Deonna fights the package to wrench out! Deonna reels Rosa in, for a KNEELING PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!!! Rosa lives and Deonna is stunned!

Deonna clamps onto the arm, FUJIWARA! Rosa reaches out, but ends up in the VENUS DE MILO!!! Rosa reaches with her legs, but Deonna HAMMERS away on her head! Deonna rolls past Rosa to then look around on the outside. She LOW BLOWS a staff member!? Just to CLOBBER Rosa with his camera!!! Deonna shows no mercy to anyone, and she puts Rosa in the ropes! MOTORCYCLE STRETCH IN THE ROPES! Rosa’s out cold, Deonna wins!!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by referee stoppage

That camera shot might as well have been a knockout! But Deonna still gets the win either way. Is Deonna going to move on from Rosa once and for all to then go after a title? Or will Rosa’s revenge not die with one loss?

 

Hechicero w/ The Gates of Agony VS Dalton Castle

Now this is a unique match-up! The Alchemist of Lucha is taking on The Peacock, and… wait are those The Outrunners being Castle’s substitute Boys? Well, uh, Turbo & Truth aside, will Castle be too hot to handle even for the man that summons fire? Or will Hechicero turn this Forbidden Door appetizer into sweet, sweet victory?

The bell rings and the fans fire up as these two get face to face. Hechi shoves Castle, Castle gets serious. They feel things out, tie up, and Hechi facelocks. Castle still powers Hechi to ropes, the ref calls the break, and the two let off clean. Castle gets fired up and eggs Hechi on. Hechi CHOPS, so Castle UPPERCUTS! They fire back and forth, CHOP for forearm, then Castle fires off a flurry! Castle runs, but HEchi follows to CROSSBODY! Hechi slips right into a SLEEPER at the ropes! Hechi shoves Castle away, goes up, and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Hechi kicks Castle around and eggs him on.

Hechi CLUBS away on Castle, runs, but Castle wrenches to LARIAT, KNEE, and DDT! The fans fire up as Castle gets a wild look in the eyes. Castle clamps on a half nelson, then CLUBS away on Hechi to get him up. Hechi fights with elbows of his own, but runs into an Alabama Lift! Castle spins, BANGAAA- NO, Hechi slips free, pops Castle up, and has the COBRA CLUTCH STRAITJACKET! Castle flails, pushes back to a cover, TWO! Hechi keeps the body scissors, wants the rear naked choke but Castle rolls. Hechi drags Castle up but Castle arm-drags free! Hechi BOOTS back, swings, but Castle blocks to ELBOW!

Castle snarls, runs, but Hechi follows to LARIAT in the corner! Hechi fires fast hands and a CHOP! Castle sits down, Kaun & Liona like what they see. Hechi powers up but runs into a clinch! EXPLODER! Castle and Hechi both rise, and the fans fire up with Castle! Hechi swings, but into another lift! Hechi sunset flips, TWO!! Castle just manages to escape, and he BOOTS Hechi! Hechi goes to a corner, Castle runs in but Hechi dodge! SHINING WIZARD! Hechi keeps going, LA MYSTICA LEG DROP! Cover, Hechi wins!

Winner: Hechicero, by pinfall

That was some in-ring magic for sure! The Gates of Agony celebrate with their new ally, will they and The Machine, Brian Cage, soon take over AEW and CMLL? But then Hechi beats up on Castle, puts him in a corner, and Liona HIP ATTACKS! Kaun METEORAS! The fans boo, but The Outrunners run in! Only to get CLOBBERED by The Gates… Hechi then feeds Castle to the Gates for the LARIAT SANDWICH! And they CLOSE- NO! Daniel Garcia hurries out here, with a chair! He and Daddy Magic have Castle’s back as they run off Hechi & The Gates! Will even The Alchemist of Lucha fear Red Death?

 

Backstage interview with Dante Martin.

Arkady Aura is with Angel Dorado, as well as his teammates, Darius Martin & Action Andretti. She brings up Dante facing Lee Moriarty in the TNT Championship qualifier. However, everyone else is banned from ringside. Dante says that’s fine, because Top Flight is about friendly competition. He remembers a time when Lee Moriarty was once about that. Darius asks if Dante is running. He’s not. Is he scared? He’s not. Because this is one of the best high-fliers today! High-flying and redeye-ing! Action promises that at Forbidden Door, Dante will be the NEW TNT Champion! But in steps Lio Rush. He says what’s up, long time no see. Good to see he has some new friends.

Not sure if any of them knew this or not, but Lio and Action go way back. That’s true. So as far as Darius, nice to finally meet you. Darius knows who Lio is, and won’t shake his hand. Okay, that’s fine. Just wanted to wish Dante luck tonight. Maybe see them around. Lio heads out, Action says yeah, great seeing him again. Top Flight heads out, but will Dante book him and the boys some golden tickets to Long Island? Or will #TAIGASTYLE make sure Shane Taylor Promotions takes over New York?

 

The Patriarchy is in the ring.

And “Mother” Shayna Wayne asks for everyone’s attention. They boo her? They boo a mother?! How dare you! Shayna demands they all get on their feet right now and pay respect to “the greatest father to ever live,” THEIR Patriarch, Christian Cage. And with that, Captain Charisma makes his way out here. Christian takes the mic and sits in the fancy chair they have for him. “Well, I didn’t exactly have ‘spending the most important holiday of the year’ in The Rust Belt, but here we are.” The fans boo but Christian says Youngstown needs to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts his business.

Now, he’d be remised if he didn’t acknowledge what today is. Today is the anniversary of his son, Nick Wayne’s biological father passing away. Christian says that can affect a child many different ways. You might wonder why the universe can be so cool. But in a strange way, Nick’s father dying was the best thing that could’ve ever happened to him, because it led him to Christian Cage. The fans boo but Christian says this veiled picture must of course be a gift for him. Did Nick commission this? Nick even has a card! Christian opens it up, and it says Happy Father’s Day. A homemade card from the heart? Should he read it?

“To Dad, You are the greatest TNT Champion in history,m and I can only dream of having half your tlanet, but I will keep striving to prove my worth. Love, Nick.” How thoughtful, Christian appreciates that. And uh, can we unveil the portrait now? Of course! The curtain is taken away, and it’s a failry impressive painting. Did Luchasaurus do this himself? Wow. Then uh, this is… Okay. But Nick’s card is unbelievable! He’s a wordsmith! It’s popping off the paeg! Christian has never been prouder, he will cherish this forever. And uh, Killswitch- The fans chant “LUCHASAURUS!” but he says shut up, he’s Killswitch! Killswitch, why can’t you be more like Nick?

Luchasaurus storms off! The fans cheer but Christian says he wasn’t excused! Get back in line! Christian has something important to say and everyone will want to hear this. Luchasaurus reluctantly stands back by the chair, and Christian says that’s a good looking guy in the picture either way. Now, it is no secret that Double Or Nothing was a couple weeks ago. And Christian clearly fell short in his quest to become AEW World Champion. But what you might not realize is that there is alternate footage clearly showing his shoulder was up! The EVPs want to do the right thing and show this footage, but he politely asked not to show it.

This family does not make excuses here! They just roll up their sleeves and get back to work! Christian vows to one day be World Champion, and that path starts with winning the Trios Championships! That’s right! Christian’s gift to his “sons” is that they will hold titles together. The fans still chant for Luchasaurus but Christian tells them to shut up! Now yes, it is uncommon for the father to give a gift to his children on Father’s Day, but that is what a good father would do. He would give anything to make his children smile. Hey, even Tony Khan’s dad gave him millions upon millions of dollars to start this company!

But here’s the thing, Tony Khan, this very instant, Christian Cage says this is HIS company! He is the greatest, most talked about and influential star in this sport! He will win every accolade until he goes down as THE greatest in history! So Tony, Christian is your father now. They are The Patriarchy, the next Trios Champions, the Faces of TNT, now and forever! Captain Charisma has spoken, but will his declaration become reality?

 

The Bang Bang Gang speaks.

Juice Robinson says it is the one-year anniversary of Collision, and they are the Collision Cowboys, the men who built this brick by brick! Juice broke his back carrying this place! Colten says that as such, they hold a lot of gold. There are a lot of teams gunning for them, but they can’t handle the pressure. House of Black tonight, and now The Patriarchy wants a shot? Yeah, it’s Father’s Day, but you don’t get special privilege. Get in line! Austin adds that House of Black, they’re not sure what’s going on, maybe they’ve been in the dark too long, but open your eyes, dilate the pupils, and uh, notice that Jay White isn’t here.

Tonight is NOT for the titles, but tonight is about proving whether or not if you can hang with the OGs! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP!

 

TNT Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Lee Moriarty VS Dante Martin!

As we heard from Dante, these two used to be friends, but ambition seems to have given #TAIGASTYLE a bit of a salty edge. Will Lee use that edge to clip Angel Dorado’s wings? Or will Dante prove that he not only does things the right way, but can win at the same time?

The bell rings, the fans rally as the two circle, and then Lee goes for a leg. Dante steps over, trips Lee, then speeds up. Lee drops, hurdles, but Dante stops to hurdle and drop. Lee handsprings, then shimmies and shakes. The fans cheer and the two reset. Dante and Lee feel things out, and the fans are behind Dante. Lee gives a testing kick, then the two knuckle lock. Lee wrenches, trips Dante, then GROUND DRAGON SCREWS! The fans are torn, but Lee drags Dante around by the leg< Dante kicks free, reaches up, and RANAS! The fans fire up, Dante speeds up, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then jumps to RANA again!

Lee flounders, Dante stays by ropes,. Lee runs up, Dante goes up and over! Lee tumbles out of the ring, Dante builds speed! Dante FLIES, but lands safe as Lee moves aside! Lee thinks he’s safe, but then Dante uses the corner to DROPKICK Lee down! Dante copies the shimmy and then drags Lee up. Dante CHOPS Lee against the railing! The fans fire up for that one, and Dante puts Lee in the ring. Dante then jumps right up to the apron, springboards, but Lee trips him up! Dante tumbles back down and Lee grins. Lee claps and the fans applaud, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Lee waits on Dante, and Dante slides back in. Lee stomps Dante at the ropes again and again and again! Dante writhes, Lee drags him up, then KNEES low. Lee fires m ore knees, then shoves Dante to RAM into him. Lee reels Dante in to HALF HATCH! Roll back and cover, TWO! Lee keeps on Dante with a hammerlock, then traps that arm to go after the other. Dante endures, even as Lee pushes on the arm. Lee twists the fingers and wrist to bend the arm, and then use it as a recliner! Dante endures as Lee gives a thumbs up. Lee then sits back up, to stomp the arm down! Dante writhes, Lee stomps him around, then Lee drags Dante up.

Lee fires more knees into Dante, shoves him, but Dante leaps up and over to sunset flip! TWO, and Lee ROCKS Dante with fast hands! Dante blocks a kick but not the KNEE! Dante sits down, Lee basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Lee is annoyed but he clamps onto the arm again. Dante endures, Lee bends the fingers and wrist, to JAM the fingers into the mat! Dante still endures, but Lee clamps on, chinbars, and pushes on the joint. The fans rally, Dante fights, but Lee throws knees to keep him down. Lee pulls on the chinbar but Dante powers up. Collision returns to single picture, and the fans rally as Dante pries free!

Dante arm-drags Lee away, Lee runs up, but Dante BOOTS him! ROLLING ELBOW! Dante ROCKS Lee again, whips, but the bad arm jams up! Lee whips Dante away, runs up, but Dante slips to the outside! Dante ROCKS Lee, springboards to go up and around, but Lee grabs a leg. Dante kicks him away, jumps again and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO! Lee survives but Dante stays focused. The fans fire up with Dante as he rises, and Dante reels Lee in. Lee fights the half nelson, so Dante CLUBS away! Lee wrenches free of the waistlock, brings Dante to a knee, and he SNAPS the fingers! What a villain!

Lee gets Dante’s arms tired up, clinches, YOYO URENAGE! Into the BORDER CITY STRETCH!! Dante endures, reaches out, and he crawls with the one free arm! Lee kicks at that arm, but Dante uses a leg for the ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as Lee lets off, and then Lee brings Dante up! Lee suplexes into a SLAM, then covers, TWO!! Dante escapes that deep tuck and Lee is frustrated. Lee kicks at Dante while they’re both down, then Lee rises up. Lee aims, Dante rises, and Lee runs up, but Dante ducks the kick! JUMP KNEE! Lee wobbles, but he BOOTS back! Lee runs up, into a KNEE from Dante!

Dante goes up, METEORA! Lee is down and the fans fire up as Dante climbs a corner! MAMBA SPLASH!! Cover, Dante wins!

Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall (advances to Forbidden Door)

And with that, the fourth spot is filled! Dante joins Mark Briscoe, Konosuke Takeshita & Jack Perry, but wait! Shane Taylor & Anthony Ogogo show up to mug Dante! The fans boo as STP are sore losers! BODY SHOT from Ogogo! But here come Darius & Action! They fight with STP but that’s 3v2! Shane DECKS Darius, Ogogo GERMAN SUPLEXES Action! URENAGE for Darius! The fans boo more but STP doesn’t care. Lio Rush hurries out here, he asks what this is all about. Shane dares Lio to bring his little ass in here! Lio does, and he slips under Shane to shove Ogogo into him! Then he schoolboys Ogogo to SPIN KICK!

Shane whips Lio but Lio stops himself at the ropes! Lio eggs Shane on, then DUMPS him out! Lee runs up but Lio TOSSES Him out, and HANDSPRING KICKS Lee into Shane! Lio stands tall with Top Flight, and refs hurry out to stop this from getting any wilder. Will Shane Taylor make sure Lio meets his final hour soon enough? As for Dante and Top Flight, they nod respect to Lio, but still no handshakes. Will Lio just have to give them all time to trust him?

 

Hikaru Shida speaks.

“I have been in AEW since day one. I am a three-time world champion. I am the longest reigning AEW Women’s World Champion. And I am officially entering the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament. That tournament needs me. And Wembley Stadium needs me! And the Shining Samurai will go to Wembley Stadium to once again become Women’s Champion.” Will Shida shine all the way through the Summer to then go All In on an incredible fourth Women’s World Championship reign?

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS Anthony Henry!

The Violent Artist has been trying to do things on his own, but even now, Roderick Strong & The Kingdom tag along. They’re on commentary for this match, and BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite! It will be an “All-Star 8 Man” as Roderick Strong joins forces with Kyle Fletcher, Konosuke Takeshita and Zack Sabre Jr. VS Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy, Dante Martin & Mark Briscoe. Will the Savior of the Backbreaker still be able to support his “friend” here tonight knowing that now? Or will Roddy find himself rooting for the other guy?

The bell rings and the two circle. They feel things out, and tie up. Henry powers Kyle back but Kyle turns that around. They go around and around, Kyle waistlocks but Henry switches. Kyle switches and drags Henry down Henry blocks one kick but has to duck the other! The fans cheer as Henry backs off, and the two reset. Kyle and Henry feel things out, knuckle lock, and go shoulder to shoulder. They go around, Henry throws Kyle down but Kyle has the leg guard up. Kyle kicks one knuckle lock apart to trip Henry up. Henry uses a leg guard now, but Kyle stands. Henry uses body scissors to climb up and go for the arm!

Kyle moves around, back drops and ARMBAR! Henry scrambles to the ROPEBREAK! Kyle lets go, KICKS at Henry, then wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! This relentless Kyle is the kind Roddy likes. Kyle wrenches, whips, but Henry holds ropes! Kyle KICKS the leg, then hooks it. Henry turns that around to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Henry traps Kyle’s head to NECK TWIST! Henry holds on, grabs an arm, then gives some kicks. Kyle just gets mad! The fans rally for Kyle and Roddy also coaches Kyle. Kyle stands, Henry KICKS, but Kyle ROCKS Henry. They fire off forearms, henry fires a strike fest!

Kyle blocks a kick, gives a strike fest in return, then SWEEPS the legs! The fans fire up as Henry flounders to a corner. Kyle runs up to forearm SMASH! Then wrench and ELOBW BREAKER, to a KNEE, to a suplex and FALCON ARROW into the ARMBAR! Henry TAPS, Kyle wins!

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by submission

Roddy says that’s because of his presence! Roddy says Kyle is clearly missing something, or someone, to help him get that edge. Will Kyle show Roddy plenty of that “edge” this Wednesday?

 

Six Man Tag: The Bang Bang Gang VS The House of Black!

We heard from Rock Hard Juice Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin earlier tonight, but now is time to put up or shut up! Malakai, Brody & Buddy have been World Trios Champions before, but will they get one step closer to becoming Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions? Or will the House fold when facing the Collision Cowboys in their house?

The trios sort out, but then they all step to each other. The fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” but we get Juice and The Dark Father. Juice and Malakai circle, then tie up. Malakai headlocks, Juice powers out but Malakai runs him over! Cover, ONE and Juice arm-drags! Malakai headscissors, Juice kips free, but Malakai avoids the arm-drag to sit down. The fans fire up, so Juice lifts a leg a la dogs. Malakai stands up to KICK Juice down! Juice scrambles away, Austin tags in. Austin is all fired up, but then Brody tags in! Austin turns around and tags Colten! Colten says that’s fine, he can bark it up. Brody swings, Colten bobs ‘n’ weaves and ROCKS-

Er, well, no, Brody doesn’t seem too bothered. Brody runs Colten over, he runs Austin over, then runs them both over! The Gunns stagger up, Brody runs up to DOUBLE LRIAT them out! Juice runs in but Brody TOSSES him out onto The Gunns! The fans fire up as The House stands together, they all build speed, but the Bang Bang Gang gets in to say BANG! So the House DECKS them all! The House tosses everyone out and the brawl is on as Collision goes picture in picture!

Brody is after Juice, Malakai TOSSES Austin, and Buddy CHOPS Colten. Malakai BOOTS Austin into the crowd! Brody sits Juice in a corner to CHOP! Malakai joins in to mug Juice, and Buddy KNEES Colten. Brody brings Juice around to whip hard into railing! Austin returns but Malakai KNEES him down. Brody CLUBS Austin, the fans fire up, and Brody CHOPS Austin. Buddy brings Colten over to join in, and he UPPERCUTS Colten into a seat. Brody herds Austin and Juice that way, the Bang Bang Gang all take seats, and Malakai KICKS away on them all! The fans hoot and bark with Brody as he runs in, to TRIPLE CROSSBODY!

The fans cheer and high-five Brody as The Bang Bang Gang all slumps down. Brody drags Colten up to put him in, and then stalks Colten to his empty corner. Brody grins at Colten’s fear, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns again and Buddy tags Malakai. They mug Colten, then Malakai wrenches to tag Buddy. Buddy climbs up to DOUBLE STOMP Colten’s arm! Buddy taunts Austin, goes back to Colten and wrenches. Tag to Malakai and he KNEES the arm! Malakai wrenches but Colten throws him down by his hair! Tag to Austin and Austin stomps away on Malakai! The ref counts, Austin lets off, but Malakai BOOTS him! Austin runs up to CLOBBER Malakai! Austin throws hands, then tags in Colten. They whip Malakai, to BODY SHOT, KNEE LIFT, and DROPKICK! Juice tags in to SENTON! Cover, TWO!

Juice stands on Malakai, the Gunns YANK Buddy & Brody down! Juice whips Malakai hard into the corner! Juice stomps away on Malakai, argues with the ref, then drags Malakai back up. Juice snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Malakai is still in this and Juice is frustrated. Juice stands Malakai up to bump him off buckles, then he tags Austin in. They mug Malakai, Austin asks “Who’s the Ass Boy now?” “YOU!!” Austin frowns, then fires hands on Malakai. Tag to Colten, he stomps away on Malakai. The ref counts, Colten ROCKS Malakai but the fans rally up. Juice tags in, he stomps at Malakai, then eggs him on.

Juice HEADBUTTS, but Malakai ROCKS Juice, DECKS the Gunns, then fires off on Juice! Juice blocks a kick, to LEG LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Malakai is still in this and Juice is upset with the ref’s count! Juice clamps onto Malakai for a chinlock but Malakai endures. Malakai fights up as the fans rally, and Malakai KICKS the bad leg! Juice THROAT CHOPS back! Malakai falls into a corner, Juice goes corner to corner, CANNONBALL only gets buckles! Malakai crawls, as does Juice, hot tag to Colten! He CLOBBERS Malakai, then whips him away. Colten runs up, but only gets buckles! Austin tags in, grabs Malakai’s foot, but Malakai BOOTS him into Colten!

Hot tag to Buddy! The fans fire up as the Aussie Juggernaut fires off strikes and a BOOT to Austin! POP-UP KNEE for Colten! Austin runs up, into a tilt-o-whirl and LAWN DART into Colten! Buddy reels Austin in for the JACKHAMMER! Cover, Juice breaks it! The fans boo but Juice hurries to BLAST Brody! Juice goes back to Buddy to whip, but Buddy lands safe on the apron! Buddy GAMANGIRIS Juice, bumps him off buckles, then BOOTS him away! Buddy goes up, Juice staggers around, into the METEORA! Cover, TWO! Buddy’s bad knee is bothering him, but he hobbles up to tag in Brody. Brody storms in and the fans fire up as we go picture in picture again.

Buddy has medics check his knee, he may have taken himself out when he hit Juice. Brody does his best to focus on the match, and he puts Austin in a corner. Buddy is in some serious pain, though. Brody runs up to CLOBBER Austin in the corner! Brody hoots and barks and gets the fans back into this. Brody roars, runs, but Colten saves his brother! The Bang Bang Gang regroups on the outside, the medics are still checking on Buddy but it isn’t looking good. This is basically 3v2 now. Juice & The Gunns strategize, knowing they have the advantage now. The ref has Bang Bang Gang settle down a minute while Buddy is helped to the back.

The fans applaud as Buddy is doing his best to walk on the good leg, and Collision returns to single picture. But the Gunns jump on Brody, they and Juice mug him, and Malakai tries to help but is sent back out! The fans chant “YOU SUCK!” but the Bang Bang Gang doesn’t care! Tag to Colten and he stomps away on Brody. The ref counts, Colten tags Austin back in, and now Austin stomps Brody. Tag to Juice, he gets some stomps in! The fans still taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~!” but Juice blows boogers onto Brody! Then Juice CANNONBALLS! Direct hit and Juice covers, TWO! Brody stays in this and the fans fire up!

Austin tags in, then he tags Colten. The Gunns get Brody up, whip him to ropes, but Brody denies the 3:10 with a LARIAT! And another LARIAT! Juice runs up, but into a BOSS MAN SLAM! Brody is down and the fans fire up! Brody crawls, the fans hoot and bark, hot tag to Malakai! Malakai breaks through Colten’s lariat to BOOT Austin! Malakai dodges Colten, DECKS Austin, then ELBOWS Colten! A strike fest and a LEG SEWEP for Austin! SLIDING KNEE! The fans fire up, but Juice takes the QUEBRADA for Colten! Malakai still ROUNDHOUSES Colten and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO!!

Malakai snarls and the fans fire up! Colten rises, distracts the ref with talk of injury, and Juice grabs a leg! Malakai kicks Juice away, but Colten runs up, FLYING FOREARM! Cover, TWO!! Colten’s shot doesn’t finish this but he tags to Austin. The Gunns get Malakai up, double whip, 3:10- NO, Malakai BOOTS Colten, BOOTS Austin, but Juice HOTSHOTS! FAMOUSER from Austin! Cover, TWO!! Malakai survives and Austin is stunned! The Gunns reload, call their shot, and they coordinate with Juice! Juice goes up, but Brody is back! The Gunns dodge him, 3:10 TO YUMA!!! But they have to get Malakai down!

Austin turns Malakai, Juice finally aims, but PAC is here?! The Bastard spooks Juice, trips him up, then flips off Austin! Austin swings on Pac, but turns around into THE END!!! Cover, The House wins!!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

The Bastard told The Bang Bang Gang that he was not going to let what they did to Death Triangle slide! The House still gets the win, even with Buddy going down with a bad knee. But then The Patriarchy has to come in via the tron to ruin all the fun. Christian Cage says congratulations to The House. Congratulations on becoming the #1 contenders to the World Trios Championships. The only problem is, they’re not a trio anymore. The Patriarchy reveals they took out Buddy!! The Patriarchy leaves Buddy down and out, right as Malakai & Brody rush to the back! Will Christian Cage stoop to new lows just so he and his “sons” can rise up the ranks?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision for the anniversary episode, and I appreciate it was more rock, less talk. The only real talky stuff was everything Christian Cage did, but even that wasn’t so bad because he didn’t take forever getting to the point. He takes credit for all the good Collision content, heavily favors Nick Wayne over Killswitchasaurus, and then tries to hide his failure at Double Or Nothing by going for the trios titles, which he can totally just use Nick and Luchasaurus to win for him when the time comes. Really good promo from Bang Bang Gang in response, and great main event between Bang Bang Gang and House of Black.

If Buddy isn’t actually hurt, he was doing amazing acting tonight. And with how Christian “attacked” Buddy, it seems the story is the same either way: The House will need a new third man to challenge Jay White & The Gunns. Pac showed up to stick it to the Bang Bang Gang, so maybe The Bastard becomes an honorary member of The House of Black just to take the titles. And honestly, what better feud than Christian “Greatest Father Ever” Cage and “The Bastard” Pac, with how “bastard” also has the old definition of “a fatherless child.” And honestly, when is Luchasaurus going to break away from Christian? Should happen during the trios title match.

Really good 8 Man Tag, but I should’ve figured BCC would win, and that Moxley would again tell Naito that he’s done after Forbidden Door. It’s the same thing he’s been saying all week since Dominion last Sunday, he’ll probably keep saying it for those who weren’t paying attention, and I am starting to think that’s just because he’s going to lose in Long Island so Naito can have finish his last run with the world title. And good integration as Lio says hey to Dante before Dante has his match with Lee. Great win for Dante, and I figured he would because you need a true high-flyer in a ladder match. Lio helping fight off Shane Taylor Promotions is also interesting, can’t wait to see which way this splits. Could someone be leaving Top Flight to join STP?

Kyle VS Henry was a strange filler-not-filler, because at least we got the news of an 8 Man Tag happening for Dynamite. It’ll be a great match, with some Forbidden Door build involved as Cassidy will be facing Zack Sabre Jr. and now we’ll be seeing Mark Briscoe, Dante Martin, and Konosuke Takeshita in the ladder match. With that, feels like one of the Kyles takes a loss. Either Roddy purposefully costs O’Reilly or accidentally costs Fletcher. I’m thinking the former so that Roddy can insist O’Reilly still needs him to be relevant. Then they can take that feud through the Summer, maybe even into the Men’s Owen Hart Cup.

Really good promo from Shida, and she’ll be a great part of the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Probably won’t win it, though, with the potential story of Mariah May challenging Toni Storm, or with Willow looking to go back-to-back. Very good match from Hechicero VS Dalton Castle, and it was a rather clever move that The Outrunners were the pseudo-boys that failed to save Castle while Garcia & Menard succeeded. Add Angelo Parker to that and you’ve got an 8 Man Tag right there of Garcia, Menard, Parker & Castle VS Hechicero & The Cage of Agony. Very good No DQ match from Deonna VS Rosa, but as I said earlier in the week, I figured Deonna would win. She’s a Heel, the current champions are Faces, she will make a good challenger to maybe the TBS Championship for All In.

And a great promo from The Acclaimed to call out The Bucks for their continued abuses of power. Cutler being the scrub that takes beatings on behalf of The EVPs is a pretty silly recurring gag, but Daniels getting in on the fun was good stuff. The Acclaimed surely do find a way to win the Title Eliminator in order to force a title match that The Bucks probably cheat to win. This probably still leads to Acclaimed helping Swerve for Blood & Guts, as I sensed on Wednesday.

My Score: 8.8/10

Speaking of, Alex doesn’t even wait for the bell, she goes after Toni the moment she’s in a corner! The fans boo but the bell rings and the ref reprimands.

Storm breaks through Iron Will Windsor, and revels in the praise of her adoring public. She also holds Mariah close, but will she still have both once she passes through The Forbidden Door? Or will the Fighting Gravure Idol steal more than just the spotlight?

 

Backstage interview with Harley Cameron.

Arkady Aura is with The Outcasts’ crazier component, and says she’s a bit surprised to see Harley without Saraya, considering the big win last week. Yeah, yeah, who cares? Saraya is not here as a form of protest! All these women are all declaring for the Women’s Owen Hart Tournament. Oh~, declaring~! What are we? Royal subjects? Oh, a royal decree from the king! Or maybe we’re more old Southern women, “Oh, I do declare!” The only one who should be declaring anything is Saraya. Because the winner gets a world title shot at All In. And who was it that won last year at Wembley Stadium? Saraya! What a declaration!

And with that said, Saraya’s done it before, and she will do it again. And now Harley declares this interview over, goodbye. Then from Harley’s mouth to the world’s ears, will Saraya make sure she is the one crowned the 2024 Queen of Harts before crowning herself champion once again?

 

AEW hears from Thunder Rosa and Deonna Purrazzo.

La Mera Mera tells “Deonna, you might’ve been a little bit busy, but there were some flashing news. Saturday is the one-year anniversary of Collision. And as a tradition, Thunder Rosa always likes to pick a fight. And who else than you?” But The Virtuosa asks back, what does Rosa not understand here? Rosa’s selfishness has forced Deonna to embrace her own. But La Mera Mera isn’t owed anything. From where Deonna comes from, those who want respect must show respect. And those who refuse get respect beaten into them. Saturday Night Collision, Rosa VS Deonna, NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! And Deonna asks what Rosa thinks happens when her head collides with a chair.

Rosa says nothing will stop her from showing Deonna the real respect of a warrior. No disqualifications, no problems. Happy Anniversary, Collision! But who will celebrate by standing over the other’s battered body?

 

Six Man Tag: The Cage of Agony VS Solomon Tupu, Jay Marston & Kevin Gutierrez!

Brian Cage, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona have broken away from Swerve’s House to do things their way. So far, so good, for them. But will their opponents wish it’d been another three sent into The Cage of Agony?

The trios sort out, Tupu starts against Kaun, and the two circle. Liona distracts Tupu and Kaun DROPKICKS Tupu into the corner! Kaun CHOPS, then fires off forearms! The ref counts, Kaun bumps Tupu off buckles to then fire off more forearms. Kaun CHOPS, the ref has him back off, and Kaun runs in. Tupu goes up and over, keeps moving, and Gutierrez tags in.

Liona CLOBBERS Gutierrez! Liona looms over Gutierrez, drags him up, then BODY SHOTS!

Liona BODY SHOTS again, and again! Gutierrez falls, but Liona drags him up again, to LARIAT! The fans rally as Liona drags Gutierrez over and tags in The Machine. Gutierrez fires haymakers on Liona, but they do nothing! Liona SPINEBUSTERS Gutierrez! Cage smirks, Marston tags in, and Marston ducks ‘n’ dodges, but runs into a BIG back drop! Cage drags Marston up, reels him in, puts one out, an d gives Marston a POWERBOMB! Cage then tags to Kaun, Liona steps in with him. Tupu runs in, dodges The Gates, but Cage SUPERKICKS him! Then the Gates get Tupu up to CLOSE THE GATES!

Cage drags Marston over, and the trio TRIPLE SLAMS him! Kaun covers, The Cage of Agony wins!

Winners: The Cage of Agony, by pinfall

This dangerous trio is only more dangerous now that they’re the ones in charge! Will they be right on the heels of the Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions?

 

Rocky Romero VS Shota Umino!

It’s another Forbidden Door appetizer as Azucar “welcomes” The Roughneck back to AEW! #SHOOTER has learned a lot from Jon Moxley over the past four years, will he show all those lessons have paid off? Or will Rocky make it clear Shota’s still got a lot to learn?

The bell rings and the two shake hands to show there’s sportsmanship here. The fans cheer, the two tie up, and Shota wrenches to a wristlock. Rocky rolls, slips around, facelocks and cravats.

Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt & Jay Lethal VS Rosario Grillo!

The One in a Billion is a big, big man, but he still has a lot to prove if he wants to be the best of the best. Will he finally start building on a win streak? Or will Rosario overcome this mountain of a man?

The bell rings, and Satnam offers a handshake? Rosario takes it, but Satnam won’t let go! Rosario kicks and kicks and CHPOS and CHOPS, but Satnam’s grip is too strong! And speaking of, he grabs Rosario by the neck, to PO-UP BEARHUG!! Satnam ragdolls Rosario! Rosario is OUT, Satnam wins!

Winner: Satnam Singh, by pinfall

Satnam TOSSES Rosario aside, having made quick work of the mere mortal. Sonjay Dutt gets in the ring with a mic to say, “Hey hey hey hey hey! Bubba (Jay Lethal), tell ’em, what’re you gonna do?” Lethal takes the mic to say ladies and gentlemen, Satnam Singh is on a freakin’ roll! Satnam just squashed Grillo in record time, and Lethal is so impressed that not only will he beat his opponent tonight, but he and Sonjay have a little side bet that Lethal can do it even faster than what Satnam just did. Satnam chuckles and Lethal says he’s done waiting! Bring that poor shmuck out here! Did Lethal not read the match card? Lethal’s up against THE BASTARD!!

Fans fire up as Pac makes his entrance out here. Pac already said he was in a bad mood on Dynamite, and surely Lethal taking him lightly isn’t helping things. Will Pac make sure Sonjay wins that side bet with Lethal?

But Lethal still hits a CUTTER! But that wasn’t lethal enough, so Lethal handsprings again! LETHAL- NO, Pac dodges to LARIAT!! And then, BRUTALIZER!! Lethal is caught, he QUITS, Pac wins!!

Winner: Pac, by submission

Pac makes Lethal suffer a few seconds longer before letting go. That’s what Lethal gets for calling The Bastard a shmuck! Pac is going to be in the Men’s Owen Hart Tournament, will he win it all to go All In for the AEW World Championship?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, even with an extra squash match for the fun of it. Cage of Agony are definitely rolling, not sure they’ll be going for the trios titles while a Heel faction like Bang Bang Gang has them, but Cage, Kaun & Liona would definitely be a tough challenge for them. And I really liked that they segued from Satnam’s squash win to Lethal’s great main event with Pac. Great win for Pac to build momentum towards the Owen Hart Cup, I do like the possibility of Pac being in the main event of All In. Whether Pac is facing Ospreay or Swerve for the world title, he’ll give us great promos in the build and an awesome match in Wembley.

Great match from Rocky and Shota, and a great win for Shota. There might be something in the works for Forbidden Door, but I don’t see Shota getting in on title stories in AEW. Really good promo from Deonna and Rosa, and their No DQ match is going to be awesome stuff. That match can really go either way, but something tells me that Deonna wins. As it stands, we’ve got two Face champions in the Women’s Division, and that won’t change after Forbidden Door, so Deonna is a very strong Heel to go after Storm or Mone. And speaking of, great opener out of Storm VS Windsor, which I clearly thought was gonna be the main event but oh well. Still a good showing for Windsor and a good win for Storm, and Storm has momentum going to Forbidden Door, though she surely isn’t losing.

My Score: 8.7/10
