The third time IS the charm, and Desperado is finally on the board! Will Wato have to wait a little longer until he’s ready for the top spot? But Desperado gets the mic before Wato leaves to say, “That’s right. You beat me in last year’s Super Juniors, didn’t you?” Desperado’s been calling Wato an idiot for the past year, and… Yeah, Wato’s still an idiot! But Wato showed that he’s watching the champion very closely. Wato knew to go after Desperado’s neck and shoulder after Ishimori made him tap out. Why would he otherwise? Desperado will give Wato some credit, then.

“Well, moving on… It took three days of this tournament, but I finally won. Yeah, that’s right! I haven’t had my spot to boast yet. After beating you, I have my chance.” And “those other guys,” aka House of Torture, didn’t show but Taguchi was looking for ’em, right? Their Super Junior fight is over, but he knows they’ll meet again. Wato better practice. Desperado vows that “The champion who sits at 1-2 will win from here on out. And what kind of match will Hiromu and I have?” What do Hiromu and Wato have in common? “You’re idiots!”

He knows this tournament isn’t only about himself and Hiromu, but Desperado vows to win the BOSJ! Then he’ll be in the Dome with a match! But is this late start in time for him to take the block? Or will his fate be in the hands of everyone else around him?

 

Here are the current BOSJ 28 standings!

SHO: 3-0, 6 points
Taiji Ishimori: 2-1, 4 points
Hiromu Takahashi: 2-1, 4 points
Douki: 2-1, 4 points
Bushi: 2-1, 4 points
Yoshinobu Kanemaru: 2-1, 4 points
El Desperado: 1-2, 2 points
El Phantasmo: 1-2, 2 points
Ryusuke Taguchi: 1-2, 2 points
Master Wato: 1-2, 2 points
Robbie Eagles: 1-2, 2 points
YOH: 0-3, 0 points


My Thoughts:

A very good round for BOSJ, but not quite like the others. ELP finally getting his win to give Douki his loss was a natural move, Douki wasn’t going to keep that momentum up. Yoh gives good matches but continues to lose because again, that’s the story. Yoh is really only going to have a chance to win getting his revenge on Sho. And I really like how they cleverly made Taguchi anticipate House of Torture to the point where it cost him against Sho, much in the way wanting to expose ELP’s loaded boot cost him winning the tag titles. Eagles VS Ishimori was very good, but in similar fashion to Yoh, Eagles is going to go up and down as he tries to recover from losing the title.

Kanemaru VS Hiromu was very good, with great story elements of the bad leg being a target for Kanemaru. With that, Hiromu winning by a quick pin, not a finisher, was actually very smart. Desperado VS Wato was also very good, but rather plotting in its pace. Wato gets probably one of his better matches out of this but of course Desperado finally gets his win. Desperado’s closing promo was great stuff, calling out Sho and House of Torture while also nodding to his rival, Hiromu. Desperado’s run from here could be quite a great one given he’s the champion trying to win the tournament and determine his own fate.

My Score: 8.8/10

TJP apologizes, he’s just tired. TJP says that Best of the Super Juniors 31, “It’s not easy. I’m tired… Everything hurts… But TJP is still alive!” The fans cheer that! So again he asks, are they having fun? The fans cheer again! “Arigato gozaimasu. <Thank you very much.>” A female fan offers a very nice sign, and TJP accepts it. And gives it a kiss! The fans cheer that, too! TJP says he sees many of these signs in every section. Please, hold them up.

The fans cheer and oblige, and TJP points out each one. TJP holds up the one he has and thanks everyone again. “This isn’t too difficult for me. Next, I meet Titan, and Titan, this is for you.” In Spanish, TJP says, “Two years ago in BOSJ, it was Titan VS TJP. Titan won that one. Also, two years ago, it was LIJ VS Catch 2/2 in Super Junior Tag League. Titan won that one. Last year in BOSJ, it was again Titan VS TJP. Titan won that one, as well. And last year’s Super Junior Tag League, Catch 2/2 were champions, but Titan won that one. Simply put, TJP needs to make a change. TJP needs to change.”

TJP again thanks the fans again, and says “United Empire! Crowns up!” The fans cheer and the Public Enemy is gearing up for one final round! Will he bring out the side of him that can defeat even El Inmortal?

 

Here are the NEW A Block standings!

Titan: 5-3, 10 points
El Desperado: 5-3, 10 points
HAYATA: 5-3, 10 points
Blake Christian: 5-3, 10 points
Kevin Knight: 4-4, 8 points
Clark Connors: 4-4, 8 points
TJP: 4-4, 8 points
BUSHI: 3-5, 6 points [ELIMINATED]
Yoshinobu Kanemaru: 3-5, 6 points [ELIMINATED]
Kosei Fujita: 2-6, 4 points [ELIMINATED]

 

Here are the NEW B Block standings!

Taiji Ishimori: 5-2, 10 points
Hiromu Takahashi: 5-2, 10 points
Robbie Eagles: 5-3, 10 points
SHO: 5-3, 10 points
“Drilla” Moloney: 4-3, 8 points
KUSHIDA: 4-3, 8 points
DOUKI: 4-3, 8 points
Ninja Mack: 3-4, 6 points [ELIMINATED]
Francesco Akira: 2-3, 4 points [FORFEIT]
Dragon Dia: 0-7, 0 points [ELIMINATED]


My Thoughts:

Another great round for BOSJ as we approach the end of the round robin phase. Some great shockers in this round, too, like Taiji turning things around on Drilla, Knight turning things around on Connors, and Hiromu snatching Eagles all in those final moments. Sho cheating Dia and Kanemaru cheating Titan should’ve been expected, though. Certainly more the former than the latter, I thought Titan was gonna get up to six wins. But then TJP has an awesome match with Desperado and takes the win, keeping Desperado even with Titan. And as such, if TJP wins against Titan in A Block’s final round, he could very well pull of that historic comeback to get a spot in the semifinals.

My Score: 9/10

PLAY BY PLAY

It’s the Double or Nothing Buy-In!

Join Renee Paquette, RJ City and “Double J” Jeff Jarrett in discussing, analyzing and predicting the high stakes, high reward, high octane action set for Sin City tonight!

 

Backstage interview with Charlie Ramon.

Lexy Nair is with AEW’s Special Match Coordinator, and she asks him what goes into tonight’s Barbed Wire Steel Cage? “In this instance, you have a cage that stands over 15 feet tall from the ground up and it weighs over 3,000 pounds. However, woven throughout it will be over 500 feet of barbed wire.” Unbelievable! Now, Adam Copeland was part of the planning process, how did that go? Charlie would normally say it went well, but in this case, Tony Khan’s absence, a lot of emotion, he’ll just say it’s been tough. Then that said, how dangerous is this match? What can we as viewers prepare for?

Normally, a cage match is about ending a feud. In this case, this cage is built for destruction. Then this just got a lot more real. Lexy thanks Charlie for his time, are we about to see the end of one man’s in-ring career?

 

Buy-In – Deonna Purrazzo VS Thunder Rosa!

The Virtuosa took offense to La Mera Mera trying to jump the line right from the moment she returned to action, and ever since, it has been a back and forth both with fists and with words. But Deonna’s been doing a lot more running and hiding than Rosa expected, so it is time to put up or shut up! With the women’s titles on the line later tonight, who wins their spot as next in line?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. Rosa and Deonna stare down, circle, and tie up. They go around, break, and the fans are dueling. Rosa has the majority share, the two go again and tie up. Rosa arm-drags but holds onto the grapple. Deonna arm-drags but also holds onto the grapple. They get up, go to a corner, and the ref counts. Deonna lets off, but RAMS into Rosa! The ref reprimands, Deonna stomps Rosa, then digs her boot in! The ref counts, Deonna lets off and soaks up the heat. Rosa rises up but Deonna whips her. Rosa reverses to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Rosa whips Deonna but Deonna KICKS back!

Deonna swings, Rosa ducks ‘n ‘dodges to tilt-o-whirl RANA! The fans fire up, Rosa throws off the sleeves and runs in to ELBOW! The fans fire up more as Rosa goes corner to corner, but Deonna ELBOWS back! Deonna brings Rosa around to whip but Rosa goes up and over. Rosa DROPKICKS Deonna, the fans fire up, and Rosa grins as she storms back up on Deonna. Rosa stands Deonna up, but Deonna breaks free. Deonna swings, Rosa gets around and arm-drags her away! Deonna bails out, Rosa builds speed and WRECKS Deonna with a dropkick! The fans fire up and Rosa says, “Thank you very much.”

Rosa puts Deonna in, but Deonna bails out. Rosa storms up but Deonna BOOTS her down! The fans boo but Deonna soaks up the heat. Deonna scuffs Rosa, refreshes the count, and she RAMS Rosa into the apron! The ref reprimands, but Deonna CLUBS Rosa in the chest! Rosa gets in the ring, Deonna follows, and she paces around Rosa. Deonna stands on Rosa’s hand, talks trash on her, “This is what you wanted!” But Rosa fires body shots in return! Deonna DECKS Rosa, brushes herself off, then drops a leg on the arm! Deonna scissors the arm but Rosa endures. The fans rally, Deonna shifts around to wrench the arm, but Rosa fires a forearm shot!

Rosa fires more shots but Deonna WRINGS that arm out! Cover, TWO! Deonna is annoyed but she keeps close as Rosa writhes. Deonna grabs the bad arm, kicks it, then knuckle locks to step over. SNAP LOCK! Deonna drags Rosa to a cover, TWO! The fans rally with “SI SE PUEDES!” Deonna YANKS the bad arm, YANKS it again, and then wrenches for an ELBOW BREAKER! Rosa pulls hair, but Deonna wrenches and CLUBS away on the arm! Deonna grinds the bad arm, pulls at Rosa’s hair, but Rosa fights up! Rosa pushes back to a cover, TWO! Rosa has Deonna’s legs, for a SEATED SURFBOARD!

The fans fire up as Rosa pulls Deonna back, then hooks her up. Deonna fights the pendulum and ROCKS Rosa down! Cover, TWO! Deonna clamps onto the bad arm for a top wristlock! Rosa bridges to alleviate pressure and the fans rally up. Rosa fights to sit up, then arm-drag free! Rosa runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, but DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down! The fans fire up again as the two stir. The dueling gets louder, but it still seems like Rosa has the majority if by only a few. The two go forehead to forehead, shout at each other, and Deonna SLAPS! Rosa SLAPS back! Rosa LARIATS! And NECKBREAKER!

Rosa pounds the mat and fans rally as Deonna goes to ropes. Rosa fires up, runs in, DROPKICK! Deonna flounders, Rosa shrieks and covers, TWO! Deonna survives but Rosa keeps her focus. Deonna bails out to the apron but Rosa runs up. The fans cheer on “Women’s Wrestling!” as Rosa ducks the haymaker and ROUNDHOUSES! Rosa goes up and up, but Deonna SLAPS her first! Deonna puts Rosa in the Tree of Woe, then takes aim! Deonna runs up, and RAMS into Rosa! Then she YANKS Rosa out of the Tree, covers, TWO! Deonna is beside herself but Rosa is tough! Deonna slashes her throat as she reels Rosa in, but Rosa wrenches out!

Rosa wrangles Deonna but Deonna fights, so Rosa shifts to a COBRA CLUTCH! The fans fire up and Rosa becomes a backpack. Deonna RAMS Rosa into buckles, arm-drags free, then runs up, but Rosa ROLLING ELBOWS! Cover, TWO!! Deonna survives that shot but Rosa snarls. Rosa drags Deonna up, reels her in, and says it’s time! But Deonna wrenches out to wrangle Rosa! FUJIWARA ARMBAR!! Rosa endures, Deonna pushes on the arm, but Rosa rolls her to a cover, TWO! Deonna swings, Rosa gets around, BACKSTABBER! Rosa glares, clamps on, but Deonna fights the Cobra Clutch! Rosa grinds Deonna down, COBRA CROSSFACE!!

Deonna fights forward, reaches out, but Rosa kicks ropes, only for Deonna to roll her to a cover! Deonna holds ropes! DEONNA WINS!!

Winner: Deonna Purrazzo, by pinfall

Rosa is shocked! The Virtuosa proved she’s an expert in stealing the win, because she just did that here! Rosa is about to lose her mind, but is Deonna going to use this move on to bigger things?
