The Tequila Sunrise wins it for Bryan, his arsenal is much deeper than anyone would expect! Will God’s Forsaken Champion have little hope in defending against everything Bryan has up his sleeve?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Dynamite is in Indianapolis but Full Gear will have a Minneapolis Street Fight! Men of the Year and American Top Team’s Andrei Arlovski, Junior Dos Santos & Dan Lambert will take on these men, THE INNER CIRCLE! Chris Jericho leads the way again for Jake Hager, Sammy Guevara, Santana & Ortiz as Indy sings Judas. But then Men of the Year and ATT JUMP them from behind!! Dan Lambert cheers his faction’s cowardly ambush, and then they bring out the kendo sticks and trash can lids! Indy chants, “You Suck! You Suck!” as they stand Sammy up, throw his TNT Championship aside and Dos Santos BODY SHOTS Sammy down! Then they RAM Santana into steel steps!

They SMACK Ortiz with the kendo stick! And SMACK Jericho with the trash can lid! Lambert gets in the ring as Scorpio Sky brings out a table! Jericho gets another kendo stick SMACK, then Ethan Page puts Jericho in. The “Fat Faced Dips*it!” hops up onto the second rope as the Men of the Year drag Jericho up for him! They go ECW as they POWERBOMB Jericho through the table! Scorpio gets the mic to say, “BAH GAWD! HE MIGHT BE BROKEN IN HALF!” But this was just a small piece of what they can do! Believe this like you believe yo’ mama! You’ll get the whole thing this Saturday at Full Gear! The fans call the faction A-Holes, but Ethan has them listen to him,

Not only will they win at Full Gear! They’re going to make sure that LAMBERT gets to pin Jericho! And wait, that’s just Saturday. Tonight, they’ll get Lambert to TAP OUT Jericho! “Put him in the WALLS OF JERICHO!” Lambert is like a kid on Christmas as he turns Jericho over to put him in his own move! Scorpio makes Jericho tap it but Lambert shouts, “IT’S CALLED THE BOSTON CRAB!!” Ethan says this is the greatest collection of talent in ALL of All Elite Wrestling! But that’s only when they get the jump on their opponents. Will this go completely the other way when it’s 5v5 and face to face?

 

Six Woman Tag: Britt Baker, Jamie Hayter & Rebel VS Thunder Rosa, Tay Conti & Anna Jay!

The AEW Women’s World Champion defends against the Brazilian Blackbelt Beauty while her henchwoman will take on La Mera Mera in the TBS Championship Tournament’s second round.

AEW takes a closer look at Statlander VS Soho.

Ruby Soho tells Kris Statlander that she “respected you before I came to AEW. And when I go there, you had my back.” Statlander says that “Unfortunately, we both knew we’d be on opposite sides of that ring eventually.” Now that they’re in each other’s way of the TBS Championship, “respect don’t mean sh*t.” The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien vows to be #YourLeader, but will the Runaway make sure she’s not our inaugural TBS Champion?

 

Jungle Boy VS Anthony Bowens w/ Max Caster!

Jurassic Express and Captain Charisma are taking on The Super Kliq at Full Gear in a Six Man FALLS COUNT ANYWHERE match, but fans are happy to see him in Indianapolis! But as always, Platinum Max has a rap! “The Acclaimed on the mic, I’m the showboat. Jungle Boy stutters every time he cuts a promo. Uh, uh, you can’t get the words out! Hang with the Acclaimed, and we’ll teach you how to work out. You look so pathetic. I wouldn’t kiss you even though you’re mah fetish. You’re so progressive, I gotta emphasize, cuz you leave your girlfriend alone with seven guys! I’m a Jungle~ Boy~!” INDYYYY~! The Acclaimed have arrived!

But Bobby Fish gets in the ring? And he KICKS JB off the ropes to ruin the celebration! Snapmare and a BACK ELBOW! Fans boo as the Infamous One gets JB up for knees! Then an EXPLODER into the ropes! But here comes Christian Cage and Luchasaurus! Fish bails out and runs away, but what was this about? Did Fish just do Adam Cole’s dirty work?

 

AEW hears from Hangman Page and Kenny Omega.

Hangman starts. “Last year, I had to watch as my friends were crowned tag team champions and world champion. And I stood in the distance and watched.” Jim Ross says Hangman has had a lot of heartbreak and setbacks, and Excalibur adds that you can only fall short so many times before it breaks you. But Taz knows fans have been waiting for this one for a long time. Omega says he could never relate to Hangman, but this is why the fans like to latch onto Hangman. They see themselves more than Omega ever did. Hangman dreams of winning the most prestigious title in the world, and nothing would feel better. Omega doesn’t lose big matches. Hangman always loses big matches. The Cleaner says Hangman doesn’t stand a chance, but will the Cowboy prove him wrong?

 

The Super Kliq speaks.

Are they finally live? Alright! CACAW~! How good was it to see Jungle Boy get his ass whooped? So good! But speaking of, Cole wants to talk with the Bucks about him. Cole’s known this guy for a really long time, so let him introduce Bobby Fish. Well they don’t have to do that, the Bucks know Bobby, too. Hey, Fish may be the new guy here, but Matt Jackson will make it clear. “There is no dispute. It is the Era of the Elite. It is the Era of the Super Kliq.” But if a good friend like Cole vouches for someone, then they’re cool. And Cole has an idea: In two days time, Fish VS Jungle Boy, where he can do even more damage!

But do them a little favor. Leave just enough of JB left so Cole & The Bucks can finish the job. He can do that. Cole knew he could count on Fish. And that’s a wrap. Fish looks to go on a Rampage, but will Jungle Boy get some payback before going after the Super Kliq at Full Gear?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Punk VS Kingston.

Taz says Kingston is a “ruthless fighter.” He’s been bred to fight, he believes in the fight, and nothing has ever come easy for him. Excalibur says when CM Punk was a rising star, Eddie Kingston was just a trainee. Kingston was someone who would carry people’s bags. That isn’t to demean him, it’s just the pecking order. But as we heard on Rampage, both men vented about how they saw the other these last 15 years. Jim Ross likes Kingston’s motivation, and thinks Punk should skip the brawling, use the wrestling and get a 1-2-3 to get the hell outta there. Kingston’s already stated he wants to beat up Punk and sideline him for another seven years. This is happening, but who will survive?!

 

Wardlow VS Wheeler Yuta w/ Orange Cassidy & Chuck Taylor!

The Pinnacle’s juggernaut is going up against the Best Friends’, and now Chaos’, Decoder! Will brawn break brains and make him a Casualty of Wardlow? Or will Yuta break the seven match winning streak here in Indy?

The bell rings and Yuta rushes right at Wardlow to dropkick! But Wardlow stays up! Yuta dodges him, dropkicks but Wardlow deflects it. Wardlow waistlocks, Yuta throws elbow after elbow, then drops down to slide under and leap frog over, to then slide under again! Wardlow gets frustrated but he turns around into a dropkick! Yuta fires off forearms, Wardlow shoves him away, but Yuta goes up the corner, only to fall back into a shoulder! Yuta gets up but into a SPINEBUSTER! Wardlow seethes, drags him up and reels him in, to POWERBOMB him! But Wardlow doesn’t cover, fans want it “ONE MORE TIME!” and Wardlow gets Yuta back up for another POWERBOMB!

Wardlow paces around, fans still want “ONE MORE TIME!” so Wardlow drags Yuta up to get him up, for a third POWERBOMB! Then a roll, into a FOURTH POWERBOMB! Chuck and Cassidy can only watch as Wardlow looms over Yuta and brings him back up. Wardlow puts Yuta on the top rope, holds him up, thumbs DOWN! CASUALTY OF WAR!! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

This is WARDLOW, and he is victorious. Chuck and Cassidy check on Yuta, and that’s when the HARDY FAMILY OFFICE attack! The Blade and Isiah Kassidy attack, not happy about their loss on Dark! Big Money Matt gets in the ring to join his henchmen- er, clients, and he has a chair! Hardy takes his time taking off his suit jacket and Isiah vlogs this. Hardy JAMS Cassidy with a chair, puts it around Cassidy’s head, and hits a FULL METAL TWIST OF FATE!! Cassidy writhes, Hardy talks trash that he will be rid of him once and for all! Will Freshly Squeezed be able to get even with the Hardy Family Office? Will he even be able to breathe?

 

AEW returns and there’s bedlam backstage!

It seems referees, producers and other wrestlers have had to separate CM Punk and Eddie Kingston again! Kingston’s almost all the way out of the parking lot but then he makes a break for it before Joey Janela and Baron Black can block him! Rampage was only the spark, what happens when these two get to burn it down at Full Gear?

 

Lio Rush & Dante Martin VS Matt Sydal & Lee Moriarty!

The Man of the Hour says now is the time! He’s making his return to AEW action and he’s alongside his new protégé in Angel Dorado. But Dante’s old mentor has picked the Ace of Space to stand beside him now. Will #LBOLio see his investment continue to pay off? Or will #PeaceLove&ProWrestling power Sydal & Moriarty to a Dynamite victory?

The teams sort out, Moriarty starts against Dante and fans fire up as these two young starts circle. They approach, tie up, and Dante powers to a headlock. Moriarty pries out, wrenches and wristlocks, but Dante rolls and slips through to wristlock. Moriarty spins, fans sing for him as he has the cording hold then the top wristlock. Dante uses the ropes to jump and whip! Dante hurdles, Moriarty sweeps, covers, ONE! Sweep from Dante, cover, ONE! Dante kicks but Moriarty gets under. Moriarty tries a sunset flip from below, Dante stays up and sunset flips back! TWO, and Moriarty body scissor rolls to a sleeper, then a body scissor clutch! TWO!

Dante waistlocks and throws Moriarty back to then drag him down to a KNEEBAR! Moriarty rolls over, Dante holds on and taunts him, to then bring him into a calf slicer cradle! TWO, Moriarty waistlocks but Dante resists the lift! Dante reaches down but Moriarty blocks the trip into a pump handle takedown! EURO CLUTCH! TWO!! The two stand off and Indy is loving this! Fans cheer “Both These Guys!” but they both stand down to tag in Lio and Sydal! Lio goes past Sydal to talk to Moriarty, but Sydal brings Lio around to say he was talking to Lio. Lio smirks and SLAPS Sydal. Sydal chases Lio, he redirects, redirects, jukes, but Moriarty CLUBS Lio into Sydal’s HAYMAKER and SOBAT!

Fans fire up, Sydal sets up for the moonsault, but lands on his feet as Lio moves! Lio kicks, Sydal blocks, Sydal flips Lio but Lio lands on his feet to bob ‘n’ weave! Lio whips, Sydal reverses but Lio springboards to FLYING RANA! And then he sucker punches Moriarty! Sydal and Moriarty both storm in but Dante gets in. Sydal doesn’t want the proteges fighting, perhaps in hopes of one day all being a team, but Lio sucker punches Sydal! Dante brawls with Moriarty and then Dante throws Moriarty out. Lio whips Sydal hard into buckles as AEW goes picture in picture.

Lio drags Sydal up, throws forearms, stomps a mudhole, then tags Dante. Dante and Lio mug Sydal, Dante whips Sydal but Sydal reverses. Sydal dodges the springboard dropkick to STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO! Sydal grows annoyed, drags Dante up and wrenches through to tag Moriarty. Moriarty climbs up to double stomp the arm! Dante scrambles away but Moriarty wrenches, waistlocks, and has a modified cobra twist! Dante endures, slips out but Moriarty wrenches him to a BOW ‘N’ ARROW RACK! Dante endures again, slips off, but Moriarty kicks to wrench. Tag to Sydal, they double RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP and throw down elbows as AEW goes picture in picture!

AEW returns as Sydal whips Dante to ropes. Dante LEAPS over to sunset flip! TWO, but Dante keeps moving! Springboard flip over Sydal, duck under a kick then springboard missile dropkick! Direct hit and fans fire up as both men are down! Sydal and Dante crawl, hot tags to Moriarty and Lio! Fans fire up as Moriarty BOOTS and rallies on Lio! Wrench, arm trap SNAP, then a whip to ropes! Lio reverses, but Moriarty FLYING UPPERCUTS! Fans fire up with Moriarty but Lio fires off fast hands, and the SUPERMAN FOREARM! But Lio steps into a wrench, spin, hammerlock and- What even is that?!

Winners: Lio Rush & Dante Martin, by pinfall

Lio tells Dante that’s what he was talking about! The team-up pays off, will they soon be heading for tag title gold?

 

Miro speaks.

“Bryan. This isn’t personal. You’re everything to some, but you’re nothing to me. You’re just a body standing between a man and his wife. Tell me, Bryan. Do you know my God? Do you know if he’s blessing me, or messing with me? Is he willing to trade my bad neck for yours? Because I need to win this tournament. I need to put the world title over my shoulder and the world champion under my ground! All this will happen not because my God blessed me, but because he feared me. Just like you should. You say you come here to feel alive, but you gotta understand that you’re pushing a man that is holding a scythe. But this isn’t personal. You have to say good-bye to your wife, so I can say hello to mine.”

 

Dax Harwood w/ Tully Blanchard VS PAC!

FTR’s “Angry Uncle” Dax may be one of the meanest men in AEW, but he’s calling out THE BASTARD! Will Pac get payback for the Lucha Brothers? Or will Dax the Ax cut Pac down and build momentum for the AEW World Tag Team Championship showdown?

If you’re wondering why Tully is ringside but not Cash Wheeler, it came down from Tony Khan that all other wrestlers would be barred from ringside! Tully is a manager, so he’s allowed to be here, will he still be a factor in this final match of the night? The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and then break.

Pac climbs, watches Tully closely, but still hits the BLINDSIDE MISSILE DROPKICK! Dax flops right into the other corner! The ref checks again but Dax is still in this. Pac drags Dax into a drop zone, goes to the corner and climbs up again, but Tully shouts to Dax and Dax rolls all the way to the other end.

Pac sighs, drops down, and runs in to UPPERCUT Dax! Then whip him corner to corner, and BOOT him again! And then back the other way, but Tully helps Dax dodge! Dax gets Pac for a BRAINBUSTER of his own! Cover, TWO!! Tully couldn’t tip the scales and Dax is furious! The ref reprimands the manager but Dax drags Pac up. Another suplex, but Pac slips out. Pac baits Dax into a SUPERKICK! Dax is in the drop zone again and fans fire up! Pac makes sure Dax is right where he wants him, goes back up top, but Dax trips him up! Dax turns Pac around, climbs up top, gets Pac up and hits a SUPER BACK SUPLEX! Both men are down again and fans are thunderous!

Dax writhes, a standing count begins, but Dax snarls and gets up at 5 of 10. Pac flounder sup as Dax throws off the armbands. Dax runs in, Pac gets under to GERMAN SUPLEX! Pac scowls, stalks Dax, waistlocks and dead lifts, but Dax elbows free! Dax runs, ducks the roundhouse and hits a LARIAT! Then he gets Pac up, REBOUND SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!?! Pac survives and infuriates Tully! Dax can’t believe it either but fans love “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for this one! Dax drags Pac up by his hair, Tully says one more time. Dax ROCKS Pac, stands him back up and ROCKS him again. And again, but Pac turns that to a backslide! TWO!! BRUTALIZER!! Pac has Dax caught, Dax verbally quits!!

Winner: Pac, by submission

Pac won’t let go, here comes Cash Wheeler! Cash mugs Pac, throws down fists, and Tully even holds Pac down. But then the lights go out?! And when the lights return, ANDRADE AND MALAKAI BLACK are here! They help mug Pac! But wait! Here comes THE LUCHA BROTHERS AND CODY RHODES! They’re all brawling with FTR, Malakai and Andrade! Indy is electric as The American Nightmare and Death Triangle clear the ring! Malakai boots but Cody boots back! Cody, Pac, Penta & Fenix stand tall! Will FTR lose out on become double champions? Will the Bastard and Cody get even with their respective enemies?

 

AEW takes a closer look at MJF VS Darby Allin.

Excalibur notes that “MJF doesn’t often speak the truth. But when he named the ‘Four Young Pillars of AEW…'” MJF says the Pillars are canon now. Excalibur says that those four–Sammy Guevara, Jungle Boy, Darby and MJF himself–are essentially homegrown stars and the next generation of world champions. JR says the fortune tellers, just like MJF. A great marketing slogan that goes beyond talking. Darby, in front of a car fire bonfire, says he’s seen MJF’s face before. The dumb scarf, the stupid smile… Tony Schiavone knows MJF sees no room at the top except for himself, and that is why he is trying to push Darby down.

Darby says guys like MJF think they can get to anyone. Darby says he can’t be broken mentally and he means that. MJF says Darby is just a wild hyena in the ring. Taz says Darby is a “violent thinker, but highly intelligent.” MJF says Darby is good at checkers, MJF plays chess. JR says Darby has heart and passion like no one else, but MJF says he has gotten so, so deeply into Darby’s mind that Darby won’t focus on anything but hurting MJF when he should be focused on beating MJF. But Darby says that’s where Max is wrong. Darby could wrestle circles around MJF. So go ahead, try to beat Darby with a headlock. Who will prove themselves the TOP name in this new generation?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

After things came to blows once again, Cody Rhodes & PAC will team up to take on Malakai Black & Andrade El Idolo, AT FULL GEAR! Will revenge be oh so sweet for the American Nightmare and The Bastard?

 

AEW has The Dark Order and Super Kliq leave the arena.

In order to make sure the contract signing tonight doesn’t turn into a war, everyone from Evil Uno to Preston Vance to even The Elite’s cold spray lackey, Brandon Cutler, are being removed from the premises.

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

He notes the ringside ban on the two factions, because now is time to sign on the dotted line! First out, the challenger, Hangman Adam Page! Indy fires up for the Cowboy as he walks out to the ring. And of course, out next is the champion, Kenny Omega! Omega struts out in a maroon suit and tie and holds up #PrettyPlatinum as he goes to the ring. Schiavone says the contract is presented, we don’t really need to talk about it much, but this is the single biggest prize in AEW. First off, the challenger gets to sign first. Fans chant for “COWBOY SH*T” as Hangman looks it over. He picks up the pen, but then gets the mic.

“After all this time, I don’t know what there’s left to say. And I know that the sooner I sign this, the sooner I get to Full Gear and beat your ass for the world championship.” Fans cheer that and Hangman puts down his signature. Fans are still fired up as Omega gets his turn. Omega wants to sign but he gets the mic. “I wish I could share your excitement. I wish I could share the excitement and the enthusiasm of these, uh… Wonderful fans. But I gotta say, Hangman, I’m a little sad, actually.” They were friends, tag partners, and family in The Elite. See all of this? Everything here was meant for Hangman. And if it wasn’t for Hangman’s failures and insecurities…

Fans boo but Omega says if Hangman talks about cowboy spirit and all that, well Hangman said it best himself: You fall off the horse, you get right back up. But if only the cameras caught how it really was. “It was never you. It was always us that picked you up out of your sorrows, every single time, sat you back up on that horse, and sent you back out there to give these people what they thought they wanted, and that was Cowboy S*it.” And why did Omega do that? Why? Even after Hangman walked away when they invited him back. Call him crazy, but Omega saw a little bit of himself in Hangman. “How wrong I was. What a disappointment.”

Hangman says Omega talks a lot about Hangman choking, his failures, his insecurities. Maybe Omega’s right. But if Hangman remembers right, Omega once had another tag team partner that made Omega feel like he didn’t measure up, either. Ibushi… But Hangman sees Omega now, “The Best Bout Machine, the Wrestling God, the man who’s been AEW World Champion for almost a year now, and it might be fair to say you’ve surpassed him.” And over the past few years, Omega’s told Hangman a lot of lies. He said Hangman’s not good enough, that he couldn’t beat Omega and let him fall flat on his face.

But the biggest lie was last year’s Eliminator Tournament Finals. When Omega won, he knelt down and told Hangman, “Good job, Hanger. I’m proud of you.” Omega wasn’t proud, he was afraid of Hangman! He didn’t want Hangman to feel the pain of loss like Omega did before. Omega didn’t want to light a fire under Hangman’s ass to prove himself and redeem himself! He didn’t want Hangman to become what Omega’s become and what Hangman will become this Saturday when he beats Omega, and that is THE AEW World Champion! Omega tries to defend that Hangman has it wrong. Omega did that out of necessity.

Believe it or not, Omega cares about Hangman! He did it because he wanted to be the guy standing across the table from Hangman when Hangman realizes his potential. Whether they can be friends again or not, who knows? But one thing is for sure, Omega wants to shake Hangman’s hand one last time. “Let’s kill it at the Pay-Per-View, man to man.” Fans don’t trust this. But Hangman does shake Omega’s hand! Omega says, “Good job, Hangman. I’m proud of you.” Omega’s biting words rile Hangman up, but then a cameraman attacks Hangman?! Because that was DON CALLIS in disguise! What a horrible fake beard, too.

Omega says he’s sorry, but he did this because he loves Hangman. Again, more bold faced lies as Callis celebrates their little plot! Callis says the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was to make the world forget he existed! For six weeks, Callis stayed away, hiding in his basement! Hangman is busted open from that camera shot! “Does this look like someone who is ready to win the world title, Kenny?!” Omega wipes some of Hangman’s blood onto the contract to sign his name! Omega makes us look at the bloody signature, and Callis shouts at Hangman that he asked for this! This is what Hangman wanted! But will Hangman get what he really wants: revenge AND the title?


My Thoughts:

Once again, AEW nails how to do a go-home. They had great promo vignettes for the big attraction singles matches, and I like that we even got a brief Punk-Kingston moment in the parking lot area. AEW just keeps making each next PPV huge, and this Full Gear could be massive. We got an awesome opener out of Bryan VS Rocky, and I love that NJPW/Chaos is willing to make the rest of the Best Friends faction part of their faction. Yuta got the crap kicked out of him by Wardlow, and I figured The HFO would attack to revive their rivalry. Maybe Rocky helps the Best Friends take on Hardy, Private Party, Blade & Butcher, with Trent making a heroic return to make it 5v5 in the first Stadium Stampede without The Inner Circle.

I should’ve figured Inner Circle would get jumped by Lambert and company, so that the math favors the Inner Circle in the 10 Man Street Fight. Inner Circle is definitely winning and Lambert is definitely taking the finish. This AEW Six Woman Tag was much better than NXT’s Six Woman Tag. Rebel still isn’t that polished but she knows her part to play and plays it perfectly, and the math of course favors Rosa in her coming match with Hayter in the TBS Championship tournament. But Conti standing tall means she loses at Full Gear, as expected. Again, Rosa has to be the one to dethrone Britt, and it could be at Revolution.

Caster had another great rap, Jungle Boy and Bowens had a great match, and I like that the math is a bit of a wash for JB with Fish going after him. I also like the subtle nod to the Undisputed Era. Fish could be Elite by proxy, but he probably puts JB over on Rampage so that JB stands tall, and Super Kliq wins at Full Gear. The tag match of Lio & Dante VS Sydal & Moriarty was AWESOME, definitely showing that Lio and Sydal can still do so much in the ring, and that Dante and Moriarty are definitely the future. I hope Darius Martin can return soon, that is a trio to watch, or even a story of Dante having to choose between new mentor or his brother.

Miro had another great promo, he and Danielson are going to have a killer tournament finals. Dax VS PAC was one hell of a main event match! That in itself could’ve been PPV worthy, and naturally, we got our set-up for Cody & Pac VS Andrade & Malakai. That is going to be really good, but I think it goes the Heels’ way since the Faces stood tall. Lucha Brothers VS FTR could go either way, but Cody could turn on Pac to start playing with the idea that he won’t turn but he’s actually a Heel. And depending on how Darby VS MJF goes, which could go either way, I wonder if Andrade and/or Malakai usurp the Pinnacle from MJF given how they’re all working together like this.

And what a great contract signing segment! Great promos from both Hangman and Omega to bring up the continuity of the past year, because who knew wrestling could do that?! I say before giving side eye to WWE and the old man in charge… And just as I had been wondering where Don Callis went, he shows up here and gets one over on Hangman. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, Hangman should’ve still had his shot at All Out, should’ve won at All Out in a nod back to the original All Out, but he’s definitely winning here at Full Gear to bring things full circle from last year. And while MJF calls himself, Darby, Sammy and Jungle Boy the Four Pillars, Hangman will be the man to carry AEW in this third year and through the TBS move.

My Score: 9.1/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

FTW Championship: Hook VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil knows he’s up against a bad, bad man, but this is FTW Rules! Everyone who fights for this title is a bad, bad man, so will Hook prove he’s the baddest? Or will Shane #SendHook back to New York without his gold?

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?

 

AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over. Rocky hooks an arm but Roddy fights off the takedown to hip toss and cover. ONE, but Roddy facelocks. Rocky fights up, pries at the hold, but Roddy holds on tight.

Roddy hobbles to a corner, Rocky CHOPS him and then follows him. Rocky ROCKS Roddy, ROCKS him again, but Roddy bails out. Rocky goes after Roddy on the apron, but Roddy lifts!

Rocky endures as Roddy digs knee into Rocky’s back. Rocky fights up, moves around, but Roddy knees him low! Roddy scoops Rocky to RAM him into buckles! Then OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE! Cover, TWO! Rocky is still in this but Roddy stays on Rocky with stomps. Roddy stomps and stomps as BOTB returns to single picture. Roddy goes back to the motorcycle stretch but the fans rally again. Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS! Roddy wobbles, Rocky KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (denies Rocky Romero a title opportunity)

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?

 

ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?


My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (4/13/24)

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.

  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?

 

Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Lee and Shibata circle, Ogogo joins commentary to say the “skull cracking, jaw jacking Gov’nah is back in AEW.” Shibata and Lee clinch, go around, and Shibata waistlocks.

The fans boo while Ogogo rejoins commentary and the ring count begins. Lee mockingly applauds and Ogogo pretends not to know what happened. The count is 8! 9! Shibata springs in at 9.9! But Lee CLOBBERS Shibata, covers, TWO!!

Lee CHOPS Shibata, but Shibata doesn’t budge! Lee CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Lee CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, but Shibata is leaning into the shots! Shibata backs Lee down even though Lee CHOPS again and again! Shibata eggs Lee on, Ogogo coaches Lee, and the CHOPS keep going. Shibata ROCKS Lee with a forearm! Lee flops in a corner, Shibata fires more forearms on him! Shibata UPPERCUTS, then JABS, then COHPS! JAB CHOP JAB CHOP!

Lee sits down, Shibata COHPS and CHOPS and runs, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! The fans fire up for Shibata’s signature and STP looks upset! Shibata snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Lee stays in this and both men catch their breaths, but Shibata gets Lee up. Lee switches around to COBRA TWIST! The fans rally as Shibata endures, and Shibata pries at the grip. Shibata switches the Cobra Twist onto Lee! Lee endures now, marches his way forward, and has the ROPEBREAK! But Shibata KNEES Lee low! Shibata reels Lee in to SAIDO!

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

Angelico and Garcia reset, knuckle lock, then Angelico trips Garcia. Angelico rolls Garcia, whips, but Garcia reverses. Angelico rolls off Garcia’s back, Garcia jumps the leg sweep, but not the EDDY GORDO KICK! Angelico wrenches, steps over, LA MAGISTROL! TWO, but Angelico stomps Garcia around. Angelico drags Garcia by an arm but Garcia kicks him. Angelico stomps Garcia, but Garcia CHOPS! Angelico JABS Garcia, digs his boots in, but lets off as the ref counts. Angelico drags Garcia up, hits a BIG back suplex, then grabs legs. Angelico steps over, but Garcia kicks him away to trip him! Garcia steps through to FIGURE FOUR!

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it! Garcia has it! Angelico has it again, Garcia has it back, ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as the two kick at each other while the hold is undone. They both stand, Garcia kicks but Angelico kicks back. Garcia kicks, Angelico kicks, repeat! Garcia kicks more and more, runs, but the leg bothers him!

Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?

 

Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off! AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

AZM ducks ‘n’ dodges, trips Storm then keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Basement dropkick! The fans fire up as AZM kips up again! AZM pushes Storm around, steps on her, and the ref counts. AZM steps away at 4, the fans rally up, and AZM runs to DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, ONE!! Storm toughs it out and the fans rally as AZM goes to the apron. AZM climbs, Storm DECKS her! Storm then runs to HIP ATTACK AZM to the floor! AZM tumbles away to the ramp, but Anna gets Mariah in a QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! Mariah RAMS Anna into railing! Mariah and Anna fight now, the fans fire up, and AZM gets outta the way!

Storm is flabbergasted as Anna and Mariah brawl their way to the back! Storm fetches AZM but AZM whips her into steel steps! Then AZM pushes Storm around, goes up the apron, and fans fire up for the PENALTY KICK! Storm is dazed but the fans fire up as Collision goes picture in picture.

AZM shoves Storm in, goes up top, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Storm flounders all the way across the ring! AZM storms over to drag Storm up, but Storm HOTSHOTS her! AZM flounders, Storm stomps her, and then Storm CHOPS AZM down! Storm pushes AZM around, flexes, then brings AZM up. Storm whips AZM, BOOTS AZM down, then flexes again.

AZM endures, so Storm shifts to a chinlock, but AZM still fights! ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Storm lets go at 4, and she paces around AZM. Storm stomps AZM, drags her up, and Collision returns to single picture as Storm stomps AZM in a corner. Storm pie faces AZM, taunts her, but AZM rises. The fans fire up as AZM fires forearms! Storm ROCKS AZM in return! AZM fires another forearm, Storm ROCKS her again! AZM fires more forearms, then blocks a kick to ROUNDHOUSE!

AZM runs, but Storm HEADBUTTS! But AZM returns to LA MYSTICA! Then BUZZSAW! Both women are down and the fans fire up! AZM sits up first, brings Storm up, and then runs, but Storm CHOKES her!

Storm drags AZM up, waistlocks, but AZM fights!

AZM grabs ropes, Storm drags her back, but AZM arm-drags free! Step over, and AZM SUSHI ROLL! TWO!! Storm escapes, blocks the buzzsaw, then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX!! AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands?

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
