Time Limit Draw; Hangman retains the AEW World Championship

Bryan was saved by the bell, but he was still going to lose after that shot! Hangman still holds onto his title, but fans want “FIVE MORE MINUTES!” Will we have to wait until some time in the future to see how this one truly ends?

 

The Elite speak.

Adam Cole says, “Oh, Best Friends. When are you guys gonna learn, when are you idiots, you morons, gonna learn not to mess with the Super Kliq?” And Bobby Fish, of course. Because last week on Dynamite, the Young Bucks destroyed Rocky Romero & Chuck Taylor. Then Best Friends at full strength were left laying on Rampage again! The Elite proved the Best Friends cannot hang. It seems that every time they meet, the Elite divide and conquer. Trent made his return, and look how that turned out? Nick Jackson suggests an 8 Man Tag for Rampage!

And then Matt adds, they can up the odds. They take the old 1993 minivan, destroy it, pull Sue out of the seat and SUPERKICK her down. They can end Trent’s mom’s career! Is she a…? Well, she does something for a living so they can end that career. Cole says that sounds like a great idea for a Christmas present. And don’t worry, there won’t be coal in their stocking this year, he promises that for Christmas Dynamite, it’ll be the best gift the Bucks have ever gotten. No spoilers, but they’ll love it. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals!

 

Matt Sydal VS Wardlow w/ Shawn Spears!

The Dynamite Diamond Battle Royal had quite a lot of different clashes, and one of the bigger was between Sydal and the Pinnacle’s muscle. Will Sydal’s third eye see a way to survive? Or will become another Casualty of Wardlow?

The bell rings, Wardlow and Sydal tie up, and Wardlow throws Sydal to ropes. Sydal KICKS Wardlow’s leg over and over, but Wardlow ducks the roundhouse, only to get hit with the SOBAT! Wardlow still throws Sydal to a corner, but runs into a RANA, that he blocks! Wardlow brings Sydal up, Sydal slips out of the bomb to ROUNDHOUSE! And ROUNDHOUSE! Wardlow just gets mad! Sydal runs, WHEEL KICK, but into a POWERBOMB! Wardlow seethes and fans fire up as he gets Sydal up again! ANOTHER POWERBOMB! Shawn Spears gets the mic to say, “He ain’t getting up, man. Pin him!”

Fans say no, give him “One More Time!” So Wardlow obliges, a THIRD POWERBOMB! Now Wardlow covers, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

Spears says, “Wardlow’s world, man!” But Spears adds that they don’t get paid by the hour, Wardlow can just make it a one and done next time. But wait, Spears SMACKS Sydal with the chair over and over! Spears then gets a call from “Maxie!” MJF wants Spears to pass a word along. Wardlow needs to go get the champagne for MJF’s post match victory. Spears will drive, Wardlow will by. They don’t even need to get dressed, Wardlow can just wear his ring gear. The Pinnacle heads out, but how much longer is Wardlow going to endure Maxwell Jacob Friedman treating him as a lackey?

 

AEW looks at the growing animosity between Tay Conti and Penelope Ford.

Tay says she is sick and tired of the Superbad Girl and her little Bunny running around with those brass knuckles. Maybe Ford can get in the ring with a real blackbelt in a Submission match? Ford says Conti wants a match where pins don’t matter? That’s fine, because she has the Muta Lock, and she has used it on a number of “hussies.” Ford doesn’t need the knuckles to win. She’ll leave that at home. Conti says she’ll make Ford tap out, just like this. “See you at Rampage, bitch!”

 

Malakai Black speaks.

“What makes a house strong? Is it the foundation? The bricks, the mortar? Or perhaps, the people that reside within it are the bricks, the mortar, the foundation. But even that foundation needs ideals. Ideals such as understanding that human nature is violent, and therefore accepting violence as as a part of who you are is key. Don’t fight it. Embrace it. There isn’t a more destructive species on this earth that is so intentionally cruel to one another than the human race. So why be in denial about it? Understand that your past is not a crutch, it is an arrow, and it’s biggest teacher is apathy.

“And therefore I will not question the teachings that The House bestows upon me but see it as a blessing, no matter how destructive. Understand that this can only be done by placing the house before everything and everyone else. And understand that not everyone will understand the teachings you bestow upon others. That through agony, the House will make them stronger. The House is bigger than you, the House is bigger than them. But lastly, the House always wins. Now your soul is worth more than a king.” Just who did Malakai convert tonight? Who else will he look to add to the House of Black?

 

Hikaru Shida VS Serena Deeb!

The first time these two met, the Full Metal Warrior was denied her 50th win. But in the rematch during the TBS Championship Tournament, Shida redeemed herself, hit that benchmark, and moved on to the next round. But the Woman of 1000 Holds couldn’t stand that, and so she made sure Shida didn’t make it past Nyla Rose. Will Deeb make sure Shida loses to her again? Or will will Shida make “The Professor of Professional Wrestling” wish she’d gone on winter break?

The moment Shida’s on the apron for her entrance, Deeb attacks! Shida throws her kendo stick at Deeb, rushes the ring, and the bell rings! Deeb jumps onto Shida but Shida brings her down fore forearms! Deeb turns it around, gives back some ground ‘n’ pound, but Shida turns it back around!

Then Deebp ties the leg sup, and has a HANGING FIGURE FOUR! The ref counts, Deeb lets off at 4, and AEW goes picture in picture!

Deeb soaks up the heat as she goes to the apron. Deeb drags Shida up at the ropes, brings her in and turns her, HOTSHOT NECKBREAKER! Shida flops down and Deeb covers, TWO! Deeb gets the leg, stomps away on the bad leg, then steps over and rolls to THROW Shida into a HEEL HOOK! Shida throws haymakers but Deeb cranks the foot! Shida crawls, drags Deeb along, and she gets the ROPEBREAK! Deeb won’t let go, Shida stomps her with the free leg, but Deeb lets go as the ref counts 4. Deeb scowls at the fans, drags Shida up and snapmares to then scrape her sole on Shida’s face! Deeb gets the bad leg and GROUND DRAGON SCREWS it!

Deeb uses the bad leg to turn Shida over, then ties up the legs in a deathlock! Deeb soaks up the heat as she stands there, and then she falls back to JAM the legs! Shida writhes, Deeb drags her up.

AEW returns to single picture, Deeb EuroUppers but Shida catches that to spin Deeb for forearm after forearm! Shida fires off on Deeb, shoves the ref away and keeps after Deeb! The ref reprimands, Shida lets off but is still fired up! Fans fire up with Shida, and she drags Deeb up from the ropes to whip. Deeb reverses, kicks the bad leg and runs, into an ENZIGURI! Cover, TWO!

Shida drags Deeb up, suplexes, and SLAMS Deeb down! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up, Shida goes to the corner and climbs, but Deeb turns her around and CLUBS her on the back! Shida is in the Tree of Woe, Deeb goes up top! Deeb has a HANGING HALF CRAB! The ref counts, Deeb lets go at 4 and Shida flops down. Deeb hops down to then kick at Shida. Fans rally up, Deeb goes out to the apron and peels off cover on the middle crossbar. Deeb brings Shida through, HOTSHOT NECKBREAKER to the bar! Shida flops down, Deeb drags her in and gets her up, POWERBOMB! High stack cover, TWO!! Shida survives, but Deeb drives in knee after knee into the shoulders!

LAST CHANCERY! Deeb uses another of her 1000 holds, but Shida fights her way over! Shida reaches out, ROPEBREAK! Deeb lets go quickly but she is seething!

Deeb runs in, Shida avoids her and again Deeb avoids the bare buckle! Deeb ducks the roundhouse, trips, but Shida BOOTS Deeb into the buckle! Shida gets the jackknife bridge with one leg, Shida wins!!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall

Deeb’s desire to destroy Shida is what brought her own downfall! Will Shida use this huge win to get back towards the AEW Women’s World Championship?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews the Varsity Blonds.

Brian Pillman Jr. & Griff Garrison are still upset after last week, when Malakai Black hit Julia Hart with the black mist! How is she doing? Griff says she isn’t here, obviously! Malakai ruined their celebration, he attacked Julia and left her screaming and crying. Then Malakai disappears in the dark. Real big man, isn’t he? Malakai might be intimidating, but he’s a coward. Griff promises to bring the fight to Malakai! BPJ wants Griff to calm down, he’s letting Malakai get in his head. This is what Malakai wants. What? Whose side are you on? Julia’s like their sister! If BPJ isn’t gonna fight the fight, Griff will! Griff dares Malakai to show up next week so he can break Malakai’s jaw!

 

Eddie Kingston speaks.

“Look, Garcia, 2point0, I’m really tired of this. You guys are just in my way. Mox is not here, I can’t tag with him. You guys jumped my boy, Monkey, AKA Ortiz, so guess what? It’s gonna be me, PNP, my best friend, Penta, and his brother, Fenix, against you three, and whoever you guys pick.” Kingston doesn’t care! As for Garcia himself, that ugly little man, Kingston’s coming after him especially. 10 Man Tag for Rampage, “let’s do it, boys! Don’t be scared.”

 

Dynamite Diamond Ring Final: MJF VS Dante Martin!

For the last two years, the Salt of the Earth has had this very valuable trump card in his back pocket, and he’s looking for a threepeat! Can he stay the perennial Dynamite Diamond Ringbearer? Or will Angel Dorado look to take that ice off MJF’s hands?

MJF struts down the ramp, gets in the face of some fans, and as they talk some smack to him, he snatches one guy’s hat away! MJF has a mic and has them cut his music. “This place is a goddamn dump!” Fans already chant, “You Suck!” but he tells Texas that their daughters swallow. Does Texas have a problem with MJF? Maybe they’d like him if he was more like them: anti-education and pro-incest. How about they keep their redneck mouths shut while he’s on the mic? MJF then calls out CM Punk and tells him, “You’ve got the balls to say all I do is go for low hanging fruit?

“That’s cool. Well, CM Punk, the second he got nervous last week, the best thing he could come up with was, ‘Um, uh, duh… Your local sports team sucks’ for ten straight minutes! So high brow, CM, I can’t see how you think of this stuff.” MJF especially loved the part where Punk said MJF needs to face him like a man so that Punk can move on to become world champion. Interesting. MJF didn’t realize an undefeated streak in underwhelming matches against underwhelming opponents made someone championship material. MJF thought that just made Punk the new Ryback. MJF deserves a title shot because he beat Hangman, just like he’ll beat Dante!

Speaking of Dante, he’s very talented but in a lot of trouble. Dante may be a great athlete, but MJF ain’t Punk. He won’t stand here and pretend he cares about the younger talent. He doesn’t give a damn. It’s easy to forget MJF is a top talent in the industry and yet he was only born in 1996. He’s the only top talent that’s young that matters. And he’s about to be a THREE-TIME Dynamite Diamond Ring Champion. Dante has the charisma and verbal ability of Helen Keller on Quaaludes, but MJF could beat him with a headlock takeover. MJF doesn’t claim to be the best in the world, he just IS. Mic drop and now Dante gets to make his entrance.

The bell rings and MJF gets the headlock takeover! Cover, TWO! Dante kips up and MJF scrambles away. Fans taunt MJF but MJF tells them to shut up. MJF kicks Dante, headlocks, but Dante powers out. MJF stomps Dante’s drop down, then struts about. Dante comes up behind MJF to SLAP him! MJF goes to slap back but Dante bobs ‘n’ weaves to fire off hands! Dante headlocks, MJF stomps a foot and gets the headlock. Dante powers out, MJF runs him over! Fans fire up for Dante, things speed up, Dante hurdles and hurdles and Monkey Flips! MJF gets up into a dropkick! Dante hits ROLLING THUNDER! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives those knees in his face but fans fire up!

Dante goes to a corner, springboards but MJF bails out! MJF denies the Nosedive Quebrada, but Dante just builds speed. MJF hurries around the corner to deny Dante a tope, so Dante goes out and around the way. MJF wants Dante to cool off, they get in the ring, but Dante avoids the elbow drop! Dante springboards again, but MJF shoves Dante down! Dante crashes into railing and MJF takes time to check his face in the ring. MJF goes out after Dante, brings Dante up and hammerlocks an arm, to RAM that arm into railing! MJF then soaks up all the heat form the fans, and even dares the front row to do something while AEW goes picture in picture.

MJF puts Dante in the ring, drags him up to wrench and WRING the arm out, then MJF smirks as he paces. MJF gets Dante’s arm, stands on the hand, and then pretends he can’t hear the fans. MJF STOMPS the hand! Dante clutches the fingers, MJF talks trash to the fans, but Dante throws body shots and haymakers! Dante ROCKS MJF with forearms, but MJF throws Dante down by his hair! Cover, TWO! MJF bends Dante’s fingers, then BITES one! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off, and Dante writhes again. MJF looms over Dante, Dante gets to ropes and hits back with more forearms. MJF rakes Dante’s eyes! MJF puts Dante in a corner, the ref counts, and MJF lets off.

MJF snapmares Dante to KNEE the bad arm. MJF drags Dante around, mounts the arm and makes lewd gestures before he JAMS the shoulder! MJF snapmares Dante, cranks the armlock, and Dante endures as MJF leans all his weight on him. Dante fights up, AEW returns to single picture, but MJF knees low. MJF tucks Dante’s arm into his tights, gets him up, but Dante fights free and moves around to victory roll! TWO, and Dante springboards to hop back, spin around, but MJF POWERBOMBS! MJF has his feet on the ropes in the high stack! The ref sees that and kicks MJF’s legs down! MJF is seething but fans fire up for the ref!

MJF puts Dante in a corner, hoists him up top, and then MJF climbs up. MJF wrenches Dante’s arm, but Dante headbutts MJF down! Dante gets up and springboards to missile dropkick MJF down! Both men are down, the standing count starts, and fans rally up for Dante! Dante gets to the apron, MJF storms over but into a BOOT! Dante triangle jumps, jumps over MJF then bait shim in to jump again! Dante builds speed and FLIES! Direct hit and down goes MJF! Dante puts MJF in, but MJF bails back out. So Dante JUMPS the corner to hit MJF with the tope conjilo! Dante puts MJF in, MJF rolls all the way out. So Dante gets in and FOSBURY FLOPS! Down goes MJF again!

Dante puts MJF back in, sees him already rolling back out, so fans want to see another! Dante goes up onto the rope to SHOOTING STAR PRESSE! He almost overshoots MJF but he gets enough of MJF to take him down! Fans are thunderous and losing their minds, and Dante finally as MJF in the ring. Dante DECKS MJF with a forearm, then another! MJF flounders, Dante goes to the corner and tries again. Still no Nosedive as MJF walks away. Dante ROCKS MJF with an uppercut! Dante climbs up to rain down fists on MJF! MJF stops him at 9, Dante lands on his feet out of the shove and CALF KICKS in the corner!

MJF blocks the whip, wrenches, whips but Dante goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO! Dante backslides, TWO! Dante schoolboys, TWO! Cradle, TWO! MJF hits the headlock takeover, TWO! Dante headscissors, MJF kips free, but Dante ducks the punch to sunset flip! TWO! MJF sits on it, TWO! Dante has the sunset, TWO! MJF high stacks, TWO and Dante throws MJF away. Dante hits the headlock takeover! TWO and MJF has the cover, TWO! Dante again, TWO! MJF again, TWO! They keep going back and forth, MJF headscissors but Dante jackknifes, TWO! Bridge and turn, MJF SIT-OU TPOWERBOMBS! Cover, TWO!! Fans are thunderous again as Dante flops out.

MJF goes out after Dante, puts him in the ring, and MJF flips off the fans. Dante slingshots MFJ in! Dante then goes back outside, triangle jump, NOSEDIVE!! Cover, but RICKY STARKS helps MJF get the ropebreak?! Team Taz is screwing Dante over because he got one over on them! Starks hurries off, Dante brings MJF up but MJF gets the FUJIWARA! SALT OF THE EARTH!! Dante taps, MJF wins!!

Winner: MJF, by submission (still Dynamite Diamond Ring Champion)

FTR appears to celebrate with their leader as he still has the ring on his finger. They hoist him up but Texas boos. But then the lights go out! And when they come back up, it’s STIIIIIIING! And Darby, too! They attack FTR for the attack last week! Dax throw s hands but Sting throws knees while Darby clobbers Cash! MJF gets back in to LOW BLOW Sting! MJF tackles Darby, he and Cash mug Darby! Fans chant for him, here comes CM PUNK!! Punk has the bat, a la Sting! Punk gets in, The Pinnacle runs away! Fans sing Cult of Personality as Punk hands Sting the bat.

Punk then gets the mic to say, “You don’t wanna do it one on one in Texas? Next week, you wanna bring your friends? That’s fine, because I’m bringing mine, and that’s the match! Deal with it!” Punk, Darby & Sting against MJF & FTR in a Six Man Tag?!? Now THAT is a Holiday Bash! But will the Best in the World, the Relentless One and the Icon be able to bash in Max, Dax & Cash for a black ‘n’ blue Christmas?


My Thoughts:

What an awesome episode! And now I see why only four matches were made: the world title match was HALF THE SHOW! That was an epic match, I did not think they’d pull another Bryan Danielson time limit draw on us but that was actually rather clever. Neither Hangman nor Bryan wins or loses, and I am very sure Battle of the Belts is a rematch of Hangman VS Bryan to settle things going into the new year and the change to TBS. We got a good promo from The Elite to give us the 8 Man Tag I was hoping for, and we also got a great promo from Kingston to give us a surprising 10 Man Tag of him, Santana, Ortiz & Lucha Brothers against Garcia, 2point0, and mystery partners. Those last two could literally be any Heel team in AEW and they’d all be great choices.

We got a very good vignette from Malakai Black and good response promo from the Varsity Blonds. Griff being gung-ho to fight Malakai is definitely going to get him beat. Malakai’s video implies he could be creating a faction, which I think would be a great move given how many people AEW has running around. That person he sprayed with mist could be kayfabed into just about anyone, I hope we get someone we’ve seen a lot of on Dark or Elevation get their chance here. That way, Malakai can take on both Varsity Blonds in a tag match with his team, and take on other factions that AEW has running around.

Wardlow of course won against Sydal but I like that Shawn Spears wanted him to hold back just on how it’s a waste of time pulverizing someone. Wardlow could’ve shown a bit more reluctance or annoyance at being told to go get champagne for MJF, but they’re slowly building towards the day Wardlow finally tells MJF to shove it and he leaves The Pinnacle. Shida VS Deeb was a great tiebreaker match, though I do find it interesting it came down to a bare buckle making the difference. For all we know, this could build into a best of 7, winner challenges a champion at Revolution or something. Either way, Shida could win the series and be primed as a top challenger.

A weird choice is making Conti VS Ford a Submission match. Conti has legit submission skills from judo, and proved her ability to fight off a submission in her match against Britt Baker. But Ford? Literally just the Muta Lock. Pretty sure Conti wins that to also prime herself for a title opportunity against the TBS Champion, who will probably be Jade. Surprised there were no vignettes for that tournament, but maybe there just wasn’t time after the hour long world title match. Maybe we can actually get both of those matches on the same night to get the TBS Championship Finals on the TBS debut.

The Dynamite Diamond Ring match in the main event was great stuff. MJF showed ring IQ by avoiding Dante’s finisher again and again, but then Dante got to show off agility and stamina by hitting all those different high-flyer moves. I should’ve seen Ricky Starks screwing Dante over on behalf of Team Taz, and I really want to see Starks VS Dante for the FTW Championship. And we got a great brawl to close out the night and set up a Six Man Tag for Holiday Bash. I’m pretty sure one of the FTR guys takes the pin so Punk, Darby & Sting stay strong going into the separate blow-offs.

My Score: 9.3/10

Hobbs then takes the belt and uses it to LASH Sammy on the back! Fans are torn but Hobbs LASHES Sammy again!

Sammy writhes, Nigel tells Kevin this is his fault. Hobbs winds up, Sammy dodges the belt to SUPERKICK! And SUPERKICK again! Sammy grabs a chair, and he SMACKS Hobbs with it! And then HEADSHOT!

The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are ready for another fight with the BCC, but for right now, they’ve got the STP! Will the #TopGuys still be FTR? Or will Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor himself prove they’re in that conversation now?

The teams sort out and Dax starts against #TAIGASTYLE. Lee and Dax tie up, Lee waistlocks and headlocks, then wrenches to hammerlock. Lee shoves Dax then claps at him, but Dax keeps it cool. Dax tags Cash, Cash runs up but Lee avoids him. The two feel things out, tie up and go around, then break the deadlock. They reset, tie up again, and Lee wrenches to spin Cash and wrangle him. Lee steps over, has La Magistrol, TWO! Lee pushes Cash around and then dances at him. Cash storms up but Lee backs off. Lee smirks at Cash then resets with him. They tie up, Lee headlocks, but Cash powers out.

Cash drops, drops, and hurdles to then ELBOW Lee down! Then arm-drag! Cash has the armlock and he slaps Lee around. Cash tags Dax, whips Lee, drop toehold and elbow drop! Fans rally up and Dax brings Lee up. Dax wrenches but Lee powers him to the corner! Tag to Shane but Dax gets away. Shane and Dax circle, talk some trash, and tie up. Dax headlocks, Shane powers up and out, but Dax RAMS him! Shane says not today! Dax runs again, RAMS again, but Shane stays up. Dax RAMS Shane again, and again, but Shane scoops! Dax slips free, waistlocks, but Shane bucks the O’Conner. Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges, but stays back to avoid hands.

The fans fire up as Dax and Shane reset, tie up, and Dax headlocks. Shane powers up and out, Dax SHOTGUNS him! Shane comes back but Dax avoids the senton! Dax wrenches, but Shane LARIATS! Shane drags Dax up, tags Lee, and STP mugs Dax. Lee throws knees, snapmares Dax and basement dropkicks! Lee drags Dax up, ROCKS hi, but Dax puts him in a corner to CHOP! And CHOP! Dax brings Lee around, wrenches, but Lee ROCKS Dax! And CHOPS him! Dax CHOPS again! And again! Lee swings, Dax ducks and picks Lee up, but Shane tags in before the atomic drop! Lee hobbles away, Dax ROCKS Shane!

Dax runs up to whip Lee but Lee reverses. Dax rebounds off buckles to CLOBBER Lee, but Shane CLOBBERS Dax! Cover, TWO! Dax survives, Shane talks trash on Cash, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Dax up, puts him in a corner, then winds up to CHOP! Dax sputters and Shane talks more trash. Shane stands Dax up, winds up, and CHOPS again! Shane keeps Dax in the corner, whips him corner to corner hard, and Dax falls back! Shane talks more trash to Cash but the ref keeps Cash back. Shane tags Lee, STP mugs Dax and Lee puts Dax in a corner. Lee fires forearms, then climbs up to rain down fists! Lee gloats but Dax CHOPS from below! Lee stomps but Dax CHOPS! They clinch, go around, and end up on ropes. Shane tags in, he throws hands on Dax! Shane scoops and SLAMS Dax, then stares Cash down while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Shane has Dax in a bearhug! Dax endures the squeeze but the fans rally up. The ref checks Dax, the hand drops once. The hand drops twice! But then Dax comes back to life! And he BITES Shane’s forehead! The ref reprimands but Shane lets Dax go. Dax back suplexes, but falls over under Shane! Shane covers, TWO! Tag to Lee, and STP gets Dax up. Lee whips Dax but Dax turns the back drop into a cradle! TWO, and Dax CHOPS! Dax puts on a SLEEPER, but Lee RAMS him iont a corner! Tag to Shane, Dax fires hands on STP!

Cash UPPERCUTS Lee, CHOPS him, then brings Lee out to LARIAT! Shane storms up but Cash spins him and UPPERCUTS! Cash runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges and LARIATS Shane down! Fans fire up but Lee is back! Cash gets around, SLEEPER, into UPPERCUT!

Lee rebounds, into a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Lee survives and bails out while the fans fire up. Cash drags Lee up from the apron, suplexes, but Shane trips Cash! Lee lands on Cash, TWO! Lee waistlocks, Cash switches, but Lee switches! Cash bucks the O’Conner but Lee distracts the ref so Shane can DECK Cash! Lee rolls Cash up, TWO!!! Cash survives but Lee brings him up. Lee whips Cash at the corner but Cash BLASTS Shane! Cash goes up and over Lee, then does it again! Tag to Dax, sunset flip leads to the pop-up, BULLDOG BOMB! Cover, FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Ladybird Monroe!

La Mera Mera is ranked #2 in the Women’s Division, and we know the AEW Women’s World Championship is spoken for in terms of a challenger. Will Rosa then look to solidify her spot in the TBS Championship chase?

The bell rings and Rosa circles with Monroe. They tie up, go around, and Rosa waistlocks to SLAM Monroe down. Rosa then facelocks, waistlocks, but Monroe switches. Rosa pries the hold to switch, hammerlock, and then chicken wing! Rosa wants the crossface, too, but Monroe wrenches out to hammerlock back. Monroe pulls hair, talks trash and CLUBS Rosa. Rosa gets mad now. Monroe whips, Rosa reverses and CHOPS! Monroe goes to a corner, and Rosa CHOPS her again! Rosa fires off forearms then bumps Monroe off buckles! Rosa says this is how you climb the ladder! Rosa CHOPS Monroe again!

Rosa winds up but Monroe ducks this chop to stomp Rosa in return. Monroe pie faces and CHOPS Rosa, then CHOPS! Monroe winds up, UPPERCUTS, then snapmares! Monroe cartwheels but Rosa avoids the boot! Rosa rolls Monroe then basement KNEES Monroe down! The fans fire up and Rosa runs side to side, DROPKICK against ropes! Monroe sputters but Rosa drags her up. Fireman’s carry and DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Rosa roars, wants Monroe back up, and Monroe slowly rises. The fans rally as Rosa reels her in. Rosa puts on out, package and TIJUANA BOMB! Cover, Rosa wins!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by pinfall

“You see this? I’m climbing the ladder, because as we know, Thunder Rosa knows how to work hard.” Rosa vows this is her time, will her comeback be unstoppable?

 

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

 

Six Man Tag: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn VS The Iron Savages & Jacked Jameson!

As the Bang Bang Scissor Gang looks to dominate all of AEW & ROH, they are trying a team remix! Max Caster has a rap for the occasion! “Acclaimed & The Bang Bang, we the real savages. ‘Bout to bring the fight like me against management! These guys’re so mad, they prolly see red!” Oh no, Caster loses the flow! This is a travesty! Bowens takes over to say, “SPRIIINGFIELD, MIZZOU-REEE~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~! Will Billy, his son Colten, and the Switchblade make a killer trio? Or will they all end up sipping the Savage Sauce?

The trios sort out and White wants to start, but so does Billy. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” so White says okay, Billy can start. Billy stares down Beefcake Boulder and the two circle. They tie up, Billy headlocks but Boulder powers up and out! Billy RAMS Boulder, neither falls, and Boulder shows off #TiddyCity! Billy says okay, “SUCK IT!” and eye poke! Billy then runs Boulder over! The fans fire up, Billy runs and drops an elbow, but Boulder moves! Boulder then runs Billy over! Boulder swivels hips, tags Bulk Bronson, and they get Billy up. It’s time to visit the city! But Billy turns it around and shoves Bronson into Boulder!

Billy brings Bronson over, tags Colten, and they whip, body shot, BOOT and DROPKICK! The father-son combo has the fans fired up, and Colten brings Bronson up. Colten whips Bronson to a corner as White argues with Jacked Jameson. Colten goes to a corner, finger guns with his dad, but Jameson now argues with Billy.

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

The Bounty Hunter wants gold, but he’ll have to step into the shadows first. The House of Black has been nothing but brutal and sadistic, will Malakai add Keith to the body count?

The Dark Father returned to singles action, and he was victorious! But then the lights go out? Why? Malakai’s already here! But then the lights come on and Mark Briscoe is here with a kendo stick! Malakai wants Mark to show mercy, but here come Buddy & Brody! Mark dodges Buddy to SMACK Brody! And then a SMACK for Buddy! Mark ducks the heel kick to UPPERCUT! Mark gets the kendo stick back, takes aim again, but then thinks of something else. He has a STEEL SPIKE! The same kind Julia Hart stabbed Mark with just a couple weeks ago! Mark aims at Malakai, but Malakai dodges! The spike stabs the buckle pad!

BLACK MASS, and then DANTE’S INFERNO!! The House of Black took Mark’s revenge and turned it around on him. Will Mark learn that no matter what, The House Always Wins?

 

Serena Deeb VS Lady Frost!

The Professor of Professional Wrestling is looking for her path to a championship, and you do that by winning. Deeb had studied up for Kiera Hogan, but cards are subject to change. Will Deeb still pass the pop quiz? Or will she be iced out of the title chase already?

Eddie Kingston makes his way to the ring!

Springfield cheers on The Mad King as he joins commentary, just as Bryan said he would. But he isn’t putting on the headset just yet, he must want to wait on the legend. Will Eddie’s hero slay the American Dragon? Or will Bryan beat Blue Thunder like he did Blue Justice?

Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

Trios Triple Threat: Private Party & Matt Sydal VS Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Bryan Keith, Komander & Penta El Zero Miedo!

With all the trios titles belonging to the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, many others are trying their hands at the trios game. Will Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen and the Zen Assassin open their third eyes?

Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb each return to in-ring action, will these two rivals keep pace in the chase for gold? And we just saw Bryan Keith win big in the trios match, but he’ll jump right back into singles action against Malakai Black! Will the Bounty Hunter get another big win in his hunt for opportunity? Or will the Dark Father prove the House Always Wins?

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya and Harley and isn’t sure how much they’ve been watching Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker, but those two are off on their path of romance. Saraya DGAF about Soho x Parker!! She has things going on, too! That traitor isn’t getting under her skin even a little bit! Harley calms Saraya down, and they do breathing exercises. Why’s Harley flicking her tongue when she does that…? But Saraya wants to talk business. Y’know how her family is big famous wrestling royalty in the UK? Well, see, she has a special announcement. Her brother, “Zodiac” Zak Knight, has just become All Elite!!

Saraya has her brother walk into frame, and yeah, he’s scary, right? Zak could’ve been yours, Ruby! Saraya was gonna set Ruby up with him, “the most eligible bachelor in the Norwich area!” And Ruby messed that up just to be with that greasy, slimy, whatever Parker is! Harley says yeah! Just look at Zak! Isn’t he hot? He’s so hot! The whole Knight family is hot! Saraya is a bit taken aback by that, and she sprays water at Harley. Harley just embraces it so that doesn’t make for a good deterrent anymore… Saraya says it’s okay, Harley’s about to be fixed. But Saraya also promises, “Things are about to get really spicy around here.”

The Outcasts head out, and Zak’s scowl scares Renee a bit. Will Ruby & Parker regret making their romance public?

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson used, or rather abused, their power as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW to have an AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution. However, they are also very upset at the continued disrespect. Will that really stop after they take their frustrations out on these young indie guys?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Lyons. Nick doesn’t even bother taking off his trilby (or is it a fedora?) as he circles with Lyons. Nick calls for a knuckle lock but then kicks low and CLUBS away! The fans boo but Nick soaks it up. Nick whips Lyons, Lyons reverses but Matt tags in. Nick hurdles then whips Lyons, Lyons ducks Nick but Matt CLOBBERS him! Matt takes off his suit jacket to then drags Lyons up. Matt TOSSES Lyons to the corner, Lyons tags in Cappuccino! The fans fire up for Cappuccino as he circles with Matt. Matt mockingly applauds, also calls for a knuckle lock, but also kicks low!

Matt CLUBS away on Cappuccino, just like Nick, but then Matt cools off. Matt brings Cappuccino up to throw hands, whips him to ropes, but fakes the superkick to DDT instead! Fans boo but Matt drags Cappuccino up. Matt whips Cappuccino to the corner, he and Nick coordinate to LARIAT GAMANGIRI COMBO! Tag to Nick, he BLASTS Lyons, and then Matt whips Nick in so he can go up and over and PENALTY KICK Lyons! Matt stomps Cappuccino, stands him up, then HOTSHOTS him into Nick’s DISCUS LARIAT! Tag back to Matt and he drags Cappuccino up. The fans rally as hard as they can, but Cappuccino gets the MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Well, turns out they call that the “Tony Khan Driver” now, seems they don’t care to be associated with the Wrestling Observer anymore. But then they feel disrespected when the ref hesitates to raise their hands? Nick gets the mic to tell Paul Turner that when he raises their hand, what name did he use? Did he really just call him “Nick?” That is disrespectful! Next time, it’s a fine! And Schiavone, please, join them in the ring. Fans boo and Schiavone isn’t sure what to do. But they are EVPs, he doesn’t really have a choice… Schiavone joins the Bucks, and Nick promises they won’t harm him.

Last week, Schiavone was in the ring with them and Nick swears, he tripped on his own shoe, knocked into Schiavone and that is why Schiavone fell over. Nick wants to make it clear, and he apologizes for that. Matt says to show how sorry they are, and how much they love him, they got him a $25 Amazon gift card. They are sorry, Schiavone, but that isn’t the only thing they’re sorry about. See, they’re also sorry that, uh… they can’t get the bloodstains left by Darby Allin & Sting out of their $5,000 suits. Schiavone says yes, that is a problem… Will they rescind the $1,000 fine on them by any chance?

Sorry, no, they can’t do that. But there are a couple things that they won’t be sorry about. The first thing is beating the hell out of Darby for all the trash he talked about them publicly. The second thing, and this is one Schiavone will really like, is them taking Sting and pinning him to the mat, saying goodbye to one of the most legendary careers in all of pro-wrestling! Fans boo but Matt continues to tell “Stinger,” call them Father Time. Because just like time, the Bucks are undefeated. And just like time, the Bucks are coming for Sting! “Now everybody, let’s have a great show! There’s a great line-up on the way!

“Tony’s over there at the desk, he’s one of the best play by play guys in the business! C’mon, everybody! AEW chant on three? One, two, three! A E DUB! A E DUB! Alright, let’s go~!” Matt fist bumps Schiavone, then leaves with Nick. The farce continues, but will there be nothing even Darby & Sting can do about it? Or will the Icon still find a way to retire on top?

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Rampage returns and he welcomes a young man who has had a busy year. He’s a brand new father but fighting the Don Callis Family, it’s Sammy Guevara! Tulsa cheers as The Spanish God heads to the ring, back on his feet after the ambush by Will Hobbs. Schiavone shakes hands with Sammy, and Schiavone congratulates Sammy on last week’s win against Jeff Hardy. But now, to the comments Callis had for Sammy just last Wednesday Night Dynamite. The insults he hurled at Sammy, Callis clearly has it out for him.

Sammy says it is a mix of emotions. Last week, he got in the ring with a childhood hero in Jeff Hardy. But on the other hand, he’s pissed off because Hobbs put him through a table! Sammy tells Hobbs that Sammy always knew Hobbs had endless potential, and superstardom written all over him. But he can do that all on his own! Hobbs doesn’t need Callis sucking the life out of Hobbs’ career! Hobbs is a star all on his own, but it’s too late now for him to figure that out because he’s pissed Sammy off. So enough talk! Get your ass out here so they can fight! The Don Callis Family music plays, but it’s only Callis walking out here.

Callis has a mic to taunt Sammy, “Look, everybody! It’s Mr. Mom! You’re back at work after nursing the child. I mean, the only thing you’ve done of any note in the last six months is reproduce, and you shouldn’t be proud of that. Dogs do it. Even these people can do it!” Fans boo but Callis says Sammy used to be a great athlete. He used to be a guy Callis wanted in the Family. But now, Sammy has become like so many others: a weak, pathetic little cuck! Sammy doesn’t get what Callis is doing repeating himself, but then HOBBS gets in from the crowd side! Sammy dodges, SUPERKICKS, and Hobbs bails out!

Sammy eggs Hobbs on, then builds speed, to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Hobbs! Sammy says bang bang, and he gets a chair! Sammy winds up to SMACK Hobbs on the back! Hobbs hobbles but gets in the ring. Sammy pursues, aims again, and he JAMS Hobbs low! Then SMACKS him on the back! Sammy throws off the jacket, waits on Hobbs to turn around, but Hobbs fights off the torture rack to LARIAT Sammy inside out!! Callis smiles as he tells Hobbs to end this! SPINEBUSTER! And then another SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs is gonna do Sammy like he did Jericho! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!

Hobbs stands over Sammy and Callis applauds. The Powerhouse has all but pulverized Sammy, and Callis even gets his shots in! Will the Don Callis Family make sure there’s nothing left of Sammy to go home to his wife and daughter by the end of this?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“I had that match. I had it won, if it wasn’t for that bald headed, sad, poor excuse of a man, I would’ve had it and I deserved it. I had that win and I deserved it, on my own.” Julia Hart calms her down and says it’s okay. They will have their comeuppance. And while seeking their revenge, they will dig three graves: one for Willow, for Kris, and for Stokely. But who does Skye want first? Whoever will step up. Whoever has the balls enough to step up and fight her! Will the Chicago Skye continue to darken until she blots out the light?

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

Toni Storm’s superfan still wants to prove herself to her hero, but that really depends on if Storm is even watching this. Will Mariah finally have Storm’s approval? Or will the Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they go along the ropes. They end up in a corner, get out of a corner, and Mariah pulls hair. The ref counts, Mariah lets off and shoves Anna, but Anna doesn’t budge! Anna smirks as she and Mariah rest and tie up. Anna waistlocks, shoves, but Mariah slides to sweep the legs! Mariah runs but Anna dodges the dropkick! Anna runs to BLOCKBUSTER! Anna then ROCKS Mariah, whips her, but Mariah reverses to ROCK Anna! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah brings Anna around to bump off buckles, and CHOP again!

Mariah eggs Anna on so Anna CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then digs her boot in as Rampage goes picture in picture!

The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, and she brings Anna into ropes to hook her up. The ref counts as Mariah chinlocks Anna against ropes, but she lets off at 4. Mariah kisses Anna on the cheek, then runs to DROPKICK Anna in the back! Anna falls out of the ropes and Mariah soaks up the heat. Mariah stands Anna up, runs, and SHOTGUNS her down! Anna flounders out of the ring and Mariah takes a bow. Mariah then goes out to stalk Anna, and she brings Anna around the way. Mariah puts Anna against barriers to CHOP her! And SPANK her! Mariah laughs while Anna hobbles away. Mariah pursues to then CHOP again!

Anna is stinging while Mariah dusts herself off. Mariah hears the count but she whips Anna into the barriers first! Mariah then leaves Anna behind and “apologizes” to the ref. Mariah goes back out after Anna, soaks up the heat, and vogues for the camera. But Anna throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS back! Mariah pushes Anna into the ring, takes her time posing before going back in, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Anna whips Mariah to a corner. Mariah slips out to the apron, avoids Anna’s haymaker, and ROUNDHOUSES in return! Anna staggers, Mariah shouts and climbs up, but Anna ROCKS her! Anna then gets space, runs up, and HEEL KICKS! Anna then wrenches the arms, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Anna grows frustrated but she drags Mariah up and hooks the arms. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

Anna hops on as a backpack, but Mariah RAMS her into buckles! Mariah is free, and she puts Anna up top. Mariah DOUBLE CHOPS, then gets some space. Mariah runs up to STRATUSPHERE! Anna flounders away and Mariah shouts out Storm! Mariah runs up, but the hip attack misses! Anna runs up to kick, dragon sleeper, and BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO?!? Mariah survives and Anna grows frustrated! The fans rally as Anna sits Mariah up, into the QUEEN- NO, Mariah blocks the sleeper! Anna fights through to have the QUEENSLAYER! Mariah flails, reaches out, but she BITES Anna’s arm!!

The ref reprimands but Mariah is free all the same! Fireman’s carry, MAYDAY DRIVER!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

One thing is for sure, Mariah is just as looney as her role model! Will she follow in Storm’s footsteps to become a champion in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is with the lovey-dovey couple, how’d the date go? Ruby says she felt it went really well. Parker is relieved, he didn’t wanna say it first and be wrong. It was incredible, everything he hoped it’d be, he had a great time. Renee points out that in the opposite direction, Saraya is becoming unraveled. If they didn’t hear her comments earlier, she had some rather choice words. And apparently, she was going to hook Ruby up with her brother? Ruby says that’s weird and Renee agrees. Plus, Zak is more like a poor man’s Tom Hardy, big pass. Parker isn’t sure being Norwich’s Most Eligible Bachelor is a bad of honor, either. And honestly, “wrestling royalty?” That’s a stretch.

Ruby tells Saraya that she said she doesn’t care, that Ruby doesn’t get under her skin, but here’s the reality: for the last year, Saraya told Ruby that Ruby needed Saraya, when it was really the other way around. Saraya is sad and unhappy without Ruby. And say all you want about Ruby, but talk bad on Parker and that’s when they have problems. Ruby said she needed space, and in that space, she found something real. And Saraya may be sick of hearing it, of seeing it, but hey, why not invite everyone along? Bring the cameras, bring the crew, and they’ll shove this right down Saraya’s throat!

Parker’s pretty fired up. He says Ruby’s hot when she’s mad. Ruby thanks him for the compliment, and the two head out to get some drinks. Will they make Saraya so sick of love she’ll never dare speak their names again?

 

Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Jake Hager w/ Hornsby!

The Undisputed Kingdom were bullying Orange Cassidy, and apparently the Big Hurt didn’t like seeing that. Will Oklahoma’s own break the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will Roddy be too strong even for the All-American Sooner?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hager and Hornsby. Roddy and Hager circle, tie up, and Hager powers Roddy to a corner. Roddy slips free, shoves Hager, and fans boo. The two reset, they circle again, and Roddy gets around to waistlock. Roddy then turns Hager around to CHOP, but Hager doesn’t budge! Fans fire up and Roddy is a bit scared, so Roddy bails out. The Kingdom pep talk Roddy while the ring count climbs. Roddy hurries in, dodges Hager, then things speed up. Roddy leaps but Hager catches him! Hager puts Roddy in a corner, runs up but into a BOOT! Roddy CHOPS, but Hager catches it?!

Fans fire up as Hager TOSSES Roddy, then CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! Hager whips corner to corner hard, runs up, but Rodd bails out again! Hager snarls, goes out after Roddy, and stalks him around the way. Matt Menard’s on commentary, he says watch out for “these bozos,” Taven & Bennett. Hager stares them down as he walks past, then fires off on Roddy! Roddy tumbles, Hager puts him in the ring, but Roddy KICKS Hager in the ropes! Roddy CLUBS away on Hager, then tells Tulsa to shut up! Roddy runs, but into a BOOT! Hager storms up, puts Roddy in a corner, and then TOSSES him across the ring!

The fans fire up as Hager LARIATS Roddy down! Cover, TWO! Roddy stays in this but Hager digs his knees into Roddy! Roddy flails and reaches out but Hager traps the arms. The ref counts as that knee gets a bit high on the chest and into the neck area. Hager lets off, but he puts Roddy in a corner to fire off body shots! Roddy staggers away as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Hornsby cheers Hager on as he clotheslines Roddy in the corner! Hager ROCKS Roddy while talking trash to The Kingdom, then he hauls Roddy up top. Hager climbs, brings Roddy up, but Roddy clubs at Hager’s leg. Roddy throws body shots, slips underneath, and then kicks the legs out! Hager ends up stuck in the ropes, and Roddy runs to STRONG KNEE him in the back! Hager falls and Roddy stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Roddy lets off to flex, but only The Kingdom cheers him on. Roddy stands on Hager in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, but then he springboard stomps Hager down!

Roddy gets the legs and has Hager in ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager sputters, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down by dropping knees, then he digs a knee into Hager’s back. Roddy has the chinlock but Hager endures and fights up. The fans rally, Hager throws body shots, and then Hager runs, but into a DROPKICK! Roddy hurries to cover, TWO! Roddy drags Hager from ropes, stomps him, then paces around while The Kingdom talks trash on Hager. Roddy glares at Hornsby but Hornsby dares him to do something! Roddy goes back to Hager to rain down fists! Roddy then lets off to put Hager in a corner.

Taven seems to be talking trash on Hornsby, probably calling him a Melvin like does everyone. Roddy stands Hager up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he scoops to BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down with another chinlock, again digging in a knee. Hager endures, fights up, and Rampage returns to single picture. Hager throws body shots and is free, but Roddy CLUBS, KNEES and runs, but into a lift! Roddy sunset flips, Hager stays up and he drags Roddy up to TOSS to a corner! Roddy BOOTS, ENZIGIRIS and then OLYMPIC SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Roddy grows frustrated as Hager stays in this.

Hornsby smacks the steel steps to rally the fans, and now Bennett glares at him. And then Taven comes in from the other side, Hornsby realizes he’s in a 2v1 situation here. Hornsby wants them to calm down, but then he pulls out a SUPER CONFETTI POPPER! It goes off and Hornsby says take that! The Kingdom still storms up on him, but here comes Orange Cassidy! The AEW International Champion is returning the favor to Hager by helping out his buddy. The Kingdom says fine, bring it then! Cassidy says hold on, he has THE HAT! He throws the purple bucket hat into Hager, and Hager loves that hat!

Cassidy then dodges Taven, shoves him into Bennett, and down they go! Cassidy rains down fists, and Hager powers up with the hat!! Roddy runs up but Hager LARIATS! And LARIATS! And OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! The fans are thunderous as Hager says, “I like this hat!!” Then Hager runs corner to corner, goes up and up, and hits the HAGER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Hager snarls! But Taven sends Cassidy into railing! The 2v1 has gotten the better of Cassidy, and Roddy JAWBREAKERS Hager! Hager staggers, Roddy storms up, OLYMP- NO, Hager slips free to GUT RWENCH BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Roddy survives, but Hager has the ANKLE LOCK!! Roddy flails, rolls over, and he kicks from below! Hager still holds on, ANKLE LOCK! Roddy flails, reaches out, but Taven throws Cassidy into the ring! The ref is distracted by that, Taven & Bennett get on the apron but Hager CLOBBERS them both! Roddy STRONG KNEES!! Hager falls, Roddy covers, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

Despite having back-up and the power-up, Hager still couldn’t beat the numbers game! Roddy is rolling towards Revolution, will he be taking the International title away from Cassidy?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage that was again booked to have story. The Bucks of course won their match, but they did what I was hoping they’d do in changing up their style. They purposefully didn’t use superkicks, and then they are apparently changing up the names of their finishers as if to say Heel Bucks don’t care about their YouTube show or Dave Meltzer. Their post match promo was good, too, but it didn’t really add too much more to the heat they’ve already got. And pretty good promos out of this Ruby VS Saraya story. I thought Ruby VS Saraya was just going to be the thing, but now it feels like they might give us a Mixed Tag of Ruby & Parker VS Saraya & Zak.

Really good Trios Triple Threat to open, and I love that it was Keith, Komander & Penta winning rather than taking a loss to the established-ish trios. The feud of Private Party and Top Flight really needs to be settled by just those teams anyway. Pretty good promo from Sammy Guevara to call out the Don Callis Family, but of course it turned into Hobbs beating Sammy up. Good promo from Skye and Julia, I really thought AEW would’ve figured out a contender to the TBS Championship by now, but maybe that’ll happen very quickly in the next week. Really good match from Mariah May and Anna Jay, and a really good win for Mariah. But you can bet Storm didn’t pay attention to this at all, just like the other times.

And very good main event from Hager VS Roddy, with The Kingdom of course overbooking this. The bit with Hornsby was fun, and Cassidy showing up was also a logical move. I like that Hager’s hat is now the same as Cassidy putting hands in his pockets, but of course Hager lost out. Roddy needs momentum going into the title match so he had to win this one, and he probably just waits it out while Cassidy gets worn down. But at this point, it’ll probably still take a lot of cheating for Roddy to win the International title and bring it into The Undisputed Kingdom.

My Score: 8.7/10
