10 Man Tag: Jurassic Express, Christian Cage & The Lucha Brothers VS FTR & The Hardy Family Office w/ Tully Blanchard!

Once again, the #1 ranked contenders are teaming with the AEW World Tag Team Champions, upping the ante from the advertised 8 Man to a full 5v5! But how will adding Captain Charisma and Big Money Matt change the dynamics for this Dynamite showdown?

The teams sort out, Cash Wheeler starts against Christian and fans are already fired up. Cash and Christian circle, fans duel, and the two tie up. Cash puts Christian in a corner but Christian turns it around. Cash turns it back around, but Christian breaks free and the fans cheer the exchange. Cash double guns and circles with Christian. Christian and Cash knuckle lock, Cash waistlocks and SLAMS, then facelocks. Christian fights up, wrenches free, has the wristlock, but Cash goes around, only for Christian to keep him form his corner. Cash rolls, rolls and handsprings to WRING Christian, but Christian kangaroo kicks! Christian gets the arms, but Cash escapes the Killswitch!

DELETE!” Hardy drags JB over, bumps him off buckles again and again and again and again, all three levels! Cash chokes JB against ropes!

Hardy drags JB up, whips him to ropes and wraps on a sleeper hold! JB endures, fans rally up, and JB throws elbows.

Hardy CLUBS JB down, drags him back up, and whips him, but JB hits the COMEBACKER! Hardy flounders, as does JB, hot tags to Kassidy and Penta! Penta leaps over Kassidy to CROSSBODY Quen! SLINGBLADE for Kassidy! SLINGBLADE for Quen! Tag to Fenix, Dax tags in, but he gets a FOREARM SUPERKICK combo, then double kicks to “Uno! Dos! Tres!” DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!

Winners: FTR & The Hardy Family Office, by pinfall

The AAA Tag Team Champions get another one over on the Lucha Brothers by way of Captain Charisma! Will this change the dynamics of the top five rankings in the tag division? Or will this only add fuel to the fire between Jurassic Express and the AEW World Tag Team Champions?

 

Six Man Tag: Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz VS Daniel Garcia & 2point0!

The Mad King just wanted some peace and quiet, but couldn’t get that with Matt Lee, Jeff Parker and “their son,” Daniel Garcia buzzing around him. One thing led to another, Garcia & 2point0 knocked Chris Jericho down, and now Proud ‘n’ Powerful are coming for blood! Will Kingston, Santana & Ortiz show they’re scarier than Red Death?

The trios sort out and Kingston is ready. Matt Lee steps up, the bell rings and while Garcia distracts Kingston, Lee attacks from behind! Lee CHOPS but Kingston doesn’t even flinch! Lee kicks low, whips, Kingston reverses to knee low and suplex! Kingston rushes after Garcia! They go around the outside, Parker is a shield but Kingston runs through him! The ref goes out there, and so do Santana & Ortiz, and now it’s a scrum with the ref stuck in the middle! The ref gets them to break it up but barely as Lee is sent into railing. Kingston gets back in, Garcia again acts as a decoy and Lee attacks! Tag to Parker and he fires off hands!

Fans rally for Kingston and he carries Parker for a SPINEBUSTER! Kingston drags Parker up, fish hooks his mouth, then tags Ortiz. Ortiz headlocks and grinds Parker down. Parker pulls hair, throws body shots, then powers out. Ortiz goes up and over then gets around to chicken wing and arm-drag! Parker trips Ortiz, covers, ONE, but Parker kicks low. Parker throws hands, whips, but Ortiz gets around to shove and trip him up! CALF KICK! Cover, TWO! Ortiz headlocks, Santana tags in, they double whip Parker to leap frog and KICK, ENZIGURI and DISCUS! Fans fire up with Proud ‘n’ Powerful, Santana grabs Parker but Parker scrambles away to tag Garcia!

Garcia talks trash, dodges Santana and kicks low to whip. Santana reverses, runs in and back elbows! Santana runs in again, blocks the boot, and ENZIGURIS Garcia back! Santana snap suplexes, Uno Amigo! Snap suplex, Dos Amigos! Snap suplex, THREE AMIGOS! Fans are fired up for Latino Heat and Santana drags Garcia up to CHOP him! Kingston grabs Garcia and BITES his forehead! The ref reprimands and counts, Kingston stops and Santana tags Ortiz. PNP whip, but Garcia BOOTS and forearms back! But he ends up in the clinch! Lift and wheelbarrow COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO! Ortiz drags Garcia up to CHOP!

Ortiz BITES Garcia’s ear! The ref reprimands, Ortiz wrenches and hooks Garcia up for a modified cobra twist! Garcia endures, Ortiz headlocks but Lee tags in as Garcia powers out. Garcia drops, Lee trips Ortiz and drags him out, then Garcia comes in around for a DRIVE-BY DROPKICK! Lee RAMS Ortiz into railing and DECKS him! Garcia gets a shot in, they put Ortiz in, and Lee digs his knees in at the ropes. Lee stops at the ref’s count to whip Ortiz hard into the corner! Tag to Parker, and 2point0 whip Ortiz to a corner as AEW goes picture in picture.

Lee whips Parker in to forearm smash Ortiz, then Parker feeds Ortiz to Lee’s drop toehold. Lee sets up to be the step stool, BOOYAH ELBOW! Parker stomps Ortiz, but Ortiz hits back with body shots, so Parker CLUBS him down. Tag to Garcia, they mug Ortiz, but Ortiz pushes Garcia. Garcia stomps Ortiz, drags him up to snapmare into a chinlock. Garcia grinds Ortiz down but Kingston just rushes in to attack! Another brawl breaks out, the ref has to restore order again, and this allows Garcia, Lee and Parker to get shots in on Ortiz! Garcia yells at Kingston but then tags out to Lee. Lee pushes Ortiz around, gets him up and hits a BACKBREAKER!

Lee taunts Kingston now but Ortiz CHOPS him back! Lee and Ortiz brawl, Parker tags in and they mug Ortiz. Parker brings Ortiz around to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Parker keeps Ortiz at the ropes, he tags Garcia in, and Garcia stomps Ortiz. Fans rally up, Kingston claps along, but Garcia gives him and Santana sucker punches! The ref has to keep them back, but Ortiz fires off on Garcia! Ortiz whips, Garcia drops to drag Ortiz down and gets the HEEL HOOK! But again, Kingston gets in and he BITES Garcia on the forehead! Kingston throws down hands, the ref has him stop and go back to the corner, but Kingston just grows more rabid at the ropes.

AEW returns to single picture, Garcia waistlocks Ortiz. Ortiz throws elbows and then switches to O’Conner Roll! TWO, Ortiz dropkicks Garcia! Hot tags to Kingston and Lee! Kingston rallies on 2point0, SPLASHES Lee then SPLASHES Parker! Kingston gives Garcia MACHINE GUN CHOPS! Fans are fired up, Parker runs over but into an EXPLODER! Garcia flops out of the ring, Kingston tags Santana. Santana BOOTS Lee in the corner, then he calls to Ortiz. Santana CHOPS Lee, Garcia sweeps Kingston off the apron! Ortiz DECKS Garcia, gets in and pops Lee up for an atomic drop! Santana BLINDSLIDE LARIATS, then Ortiz DDT’s!

Ortiz sets up as a step stool again, Santana uses him for an assisted MOONSAULT, but onto knees! Roll up, with tights! Garcia & 2point0 win!!

Winners: Daniel Garcia & 2point0, by pinfall

Garcia stomps away on Santana, then so does Lee! They’re adding insult to injury after stealing the win. Garcia has the ring bell!? Garcia brings it into the ring, the ref tells him to stop! Kingston crawls into the ring, Garcia stomps him down! Garcia aims at Santana, BELL SMASH!! BUT HERE COMES JERICHO!! And he’s got Floyd the baseball bat! He SMACKS Parker, but Garcia and 2point0 get away before any more can happen! Will they regret ever crossing Le Champion?

As for Kingston, he looks at Jericho with some confusion. Kingston didn’t need Jericho’s help, but Jericho says he was here for PNP. Ortiz tries to keep the peace between Kingston and Jericho, can they all focus on their common enemies in Garcia and 2point0?

 

MJF speaks.

“Hey, it’s me, one of the biggest ratings draws in all of professional wrestling. Don’t believe me? Google it. And today, we’re going to talk about unsafe working conditions.” Last week, MJF was “thrown over the top rope with reckless abandonment by that untrained outlaw hack, Sting.” Who even trained that guy? No one knows, because he was never trained! The man is revered when he should be released. MJF is sure if he was working for a much more professional wrestling company, things like this wouldn’t happen. But that is a conversation to have as we get closer to the bidding war in 2024.

But CM Punk, you claim you want a piece of MJF and are a man of the people, yet the people want Punk VS MJF and Punk wanted no part of MJF in that match “like a gutless coward.” Well guess what? MJF is right here. Punk is yesterday’s news, a distraction from MJF’s ultimate goal, and that is him becoming AEW World Champion. But why stop there? War Dog, stop chasing the Powerbomb Symphony so you can start getting wins and qualify into the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match, where the winner gets a shot at the TNT Championship, which MJF knows he’ll win! But when Wardlow wins, he can then relinquish it to Wardlow. Say what now?

MJF had a feeling that’d be his reaction. Spears, go get Mark Sterling. The hell is this? Sterling brings up the contract MJF and Wardlow have, and Wardlow working with MJF and The Pinnacle, he is “work for hire,” and any merchandise, royalties, and even championships immediately belong to MJF. Always have a plan. Just like Sterling does for Jade Cargill. Cool. Now, Spears, Sterling, disappear. Got it. So MJF will rank up and become not just TNT Champion but AEW World Champion. Why? Because he is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, he is better than you, and you know it. Wardlow looks ready to kill, but will he kill opponents or his own boss?

 

Backstage interview with the Lucha Brothers.

But before Tony Schiavone can really talk with them, Jurassic Express barge in! Christian accuses “you dipshits of going into business for yourselves!” That cost them the match! Let’s stop delaying the inevitable. Next week, Jurassic Express VS Lucha Brothers, on Dynamite, for the AEW World Tag Team Championships! Penta answers in Spanish, Alex Abrahantes translates, saying that Christian is supposed to be a legend, yet he can’t even be a good tag partner. But y’know what? JB may be the future, maybe he should consider letting go of the past. Fenix adds that they accept the challenge! Because they have CERO! MIEDO! The title match is on, but who starts 2022 as champions?

 

Wardlow w/ Shawn Spears VS Colin Delaney!

After again being told what to do by Maxwell Jacob Friedman, Wardlow goes to the ring to take care of business! But will he do things his way? Or will he follow orders like the War Dog he is?

The bell rings and fans chant “WARD~LOW! WARD~LOW!” They tie up, Delaney waistlocks but Wardlow breaks free with a hard back elbow, then winds up for a LARIAT! Spears says that’s great stuff, and Wardlow drags Delaney up to reel him in. POWERBOMB! Delaney flounders and fans want it “One More Time! One More Time!” Spears says no but Wardlow says yes! ANOTHER POWERBOMB! Wardlow drags Delaney up again, Spears just give sup, POWERGOMB NUMBER THREE! But then a roll right into POEWRBOMB NUMBER FOUR! One foot cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

Spears applauds, because clearly there’s no stopping Wardlow from doing what Wardlow wants! But then, what happens if and when Wardlow gets gold? Spears adds on with a CHAIRSHOT to Delaney on the ramp! The ref reprimands, Spears ushers Wardlow on, will Spears also be on Wardlow’s list of grievances?

 

The Super Kliq, and friends, speak.

“Brandon, are we live?” “Uh, I think so.” Good, because tonight will be historic! Adam Cole says the five of them together will go down as the greatest group not only in AEW but in all of pro-wrestling! Matt Jackson says, “Is that what this is? One big happy family?” Even though Kyle O’Reilly hasn’t even said hi to them since he got here! He’s barely made eye contact! Kyle somewhat sarcastically says hi to Matt and Nick. But he wants a minute to talk with Adam. Anything he wants to say to Adam, he can say to them. Cole tells the Bucks it’s fine, he’s got this. The Bucks accept that and leave, and then Kyle tells Bobby Fish he can go.

Once alone, Cole tries to speak first but Kyle has him stop. Kyle knows things are messed up, there was heat the last time they saw each other. But this is AEW. The key to surviving here, and for that matter, thriving here, is factions. Kyle, Cole and Fish, they are three dangerous individuals, the paragons of AEW. Now tonight against Best Friends, Kyle knows Fish has his back. He’ll find out if Cole does, too. Cole has Cutler cut, but will this reunited trio be anything but undisputed?

 

Dan Lambert & The Men of the Year are in the ring.

And worse yet, Lambert has the mic. “My MMA business is a full-time job. I just thought it’d be cool to come here as an old school fan. The problem is, there is absolutely nothing cool about Cody Rhodes and his entourage. Arn Anderson is one of my all time favorites, but I see him with Cody, and it just makes me sad. Because now he’s a guy trying to make a couple dollars sucking up to another guy who sucks up to THE guy.” Arn used to be a Horseman, now he’s just a whore. That’s the perfect segue to Brandi! And if that’s her real name, she’s the first Brandi that Dan’s known that wasn’t a stripper!

Ethan Page stops Dan right there to say, “That’s not currently a stripper. Because now, she’s a ‘wrestler.'” Dan says that is an excellent point, but they can’t keep coming back here with stripper jokes, or else they’re going to get very old and very tired very quickly. Just like Brandi these last couple years. That brings Lambert to Cody. He knows how hard Cody’s tried to make it to this business, “traveling the world, spilling blood, breaking bones, crashing through tables of fire.” Hell, Cody went so far as to tattoo “a Transformers logo” to his neck, “that even Mike Tyson thinks looks stupid!”

Cody never really made it, through, until he cut that deal with Tony Conman to become the pet project to skip the line over more deserving talent! AEW fans may be idiots, but even an idiot doesn’t like the taste of that shit sandwich AEW is shoving down their throats! But then Brandi Rhodes walks out to ask, “Who the hell told you tonight was open mic night, you bobble headed, ugly ass, less talented version of Paul Heyman?” Brandi goes right to the ring, and Lambert says he prefers Jim Cornett. But the sound of Brandi’s voice makes Lambert wish he was back in that street fight, getting his balls stapled by Chris Jericho!

Brandi says at least her family thinks that’s funny. But to ask a serious question, when’s the last time Lambert got beat up by a woman and didn’t have to pay for it? She’ll do him a solid by whoopin’ that ass for free. “Listen, Bambi. Sorry, I get my stripper names confused sometimes, Brandi.” But Lambert is a blackbelt in Brazilian jiujitsu, there is not a single soul watching that doesn’t want to slap the taste outta Brandi’s mouth right now. And if he’s the one who gets to, then let’s go! Oh so Lambert has a blackbelt? Well she’s a Black bitch, let’s go! The Men of the Year have to hold Lambert back on this one! And here comes Dustin Rhodes to stop Brandi!

But then Ethan sucker punches Dustin! The Men of the Year and Lambert bail, telling everyone to kiss their asses. Will the American Nightmare have something to say about this?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Winter is Coming, Hangman Page VS Bryan Danielson.

Tony Schiavone says, “When the match started, it was very apparent to me by the look on his face that Bryan Danielson did not respect Adam Page.” Adam Page himself says that he knew Bryan had the technical ability, the intellect and the stamina, but he didn’t know that when he hit Bryan as hard as he could in the head, Bryan would get back up. Excalibur says that as we saw in the first match, Champion’s Advantage means a draw keeps the title around the champion. But now, that advantage is thrown out the window with three judges at ringside to make the decision.

Jim Ross says the judges brings some intrigue to this. Who will they be? What are their points system? It is a recipe for chaos. Excalibur says there is no better way to kick off the TBS Era of AEW than with this world title match. Schiavone says there is a lot of prestige added. And Schiavone’s felt that ever since Bryan arrived, he would inevitably become AEW World Champion. Will it be on the first TBS show? That remains to be seen. Excalibur says this has all the potential of going another 60 minutes, and it could kick off the TBS Era with a NEW AEW World Champion. Who will be proven right when the Cowboy and the American Dragon run it back?

 

AEW TBS Championship Semifinal: Thunder Rosa VS Jade Cargill w/ Mark Sterling!

La Mera Mera and #ThatBitch have had it out for each other for a lot longer than just this title tournament! But now, in their biggest showdown yet, only one is going to meet Ruby Soho in the finals! Will Rosa bring the thunder to Jade’s storm? Or will the undefeated streak continue all the way to the title fight?

The bell rings and Rosa waits until Jade turns around to dropkick the legs out! Jade bails out, fans are thunderous for Rosa already as she runs, but Sterling blocks her path! Sterling has Jade catch her breath, but then Rosa CANNONBALLS to take out Sterling! Jade CLOBBERS Rosa from behind, then fires more forearms! Jade smacks Rosa off barriers, taunts the fans, but Rosa hits back with body shots! Rosa throws knees from all sides, RAMS Jade into the apron, then gets in to refresh the count. Rosa KICKS Cargill’s legs, but she fires back forearms! Jade CLUBS Rosa down, the ring count starts again, Jade gets the chicken wings but Rosa fights free to the apron!

Rosa leaps to CROSSBODY, but Jade catches her for a BACKBREAKER! Jade gets in the ring to refresh the count, then flexes. Jade dares Rosa to get up, then runs in, only for Rosa to dodge and dropkick the leg out! Rosa gets Jade’s leg to kick away on it! Sterling protests but the ref keeps counting. Rosa refreshes the count again, and then she drags Jade to railing. Rosa puts Jade’s leg on it and KICKS the leg! Jade falls over, Rosa KICKS her leg more! Rosa drags Jade up but Jade whips Rosa into railing again! Jade hobbles after Rosa, stomps her down, and gets back in the ring to refresh the count. Jade stalks Rosa, brings her around, but Rosa throws body shots!

Rosa whips but Jade reverses to POST Rosa! Jade puts Rosa in the ring and flexes on the apron. Fans rally and duel, Jade hobbles, but she pretends to dribble. Jade runs in but Rosa dodges the slam dunk! Rosa then SLAPS Jade, shoulders in, but Jade gets her with knee after knee! Rosa catches the leg to get it in the ropes! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Jade falls and Rosa fires up! Fans fire up, too, and Rosa goes up the corner. Jade hobbles, but Rosa slips a little. Rosa still elbows Jade, but Jade comes back with a BOOT! Jade is snarling as AEW goes picture in picture.

Rosa flounders to the ropes, Jade works out the bad leg and the two circle. Rosa feels it out, shoots in to get the bad leg, but Jade throws her off. They circle, Rosa goes for the leg again, but Jade throws her back off. Rosa avoids the boot to trip Jade and drop elbows on the knee! Rosa has a high stack but Jade kicks out before a count. Rosa goes for the leg again but Jade kicks her away. Jade hobbles up but Rosa shoots back in to get the legs! Jade blocks the takedown to a GUILLOTINE! Rosa endures as Jade keeps her off the ground! Then Jade shifts to a GOURD BUSTER! Jade clutches her knee but Rosa sputters on the mat.

Jade drags Rosa back up, swings, but Rosa dodges to KICK the leg! Rosa dodges to KICK again, then gets around to kick, only for Jade to block and throw her down! Jade drags Rosa up to CLUB her, but Rosa goes after the leg. Jade CLUBS Rosa again, tries to suplex, but Rosa blocks and fires back! Rosa focuses on the knee but Jade CLUBS her down again. Jade stomps with the good leg, brings Rosa back up, and manages to suplex! Jade still holds Rosa up for 10 and maybe even 15, before Rosa makes it a CROSSBODY! Cover as AEW returns to single picture, TWO! Rosa goes to a corner and fans fire up as she aims at Jade!

Rosa runs corner to corner, but she blocks Jade’s boot to put it in the ropes. Rosa kicks away on the bad leg, throws haymakers on it, but lets off as the ref counts. Rosa goes corner to corner again, to clothesline! Then she throws point-blank clotheslines! Jade sits down, Rosa goes corner to corner again, basement dropkick to the leg! Fans fire up as Rosa runs in again, another basement dropkick to the leg! Rosa has the leg, kicks away on the hamstring, then drags Jade for a high stack, TWO! Jade is still in this but Rosa keeps after the knee! More elbow drops, then Rosa steps through, only for Jade to kick her away. Things speed up, Jade manages to pop Rosa up for a SAMOAN DROP!

Jade kips up, adrenaline helping, but she’s still hobbling. Jade sees Rosa get to a corner and she storms over. Jade blocks a boot to KNEE Rosa, then brings her out to gut wrench. Jade has to worry about her leg at the same time, but she still matches the CANADIAN RACK BACKBREAKER! Jade can’t cover because of the leg, but she watches Rosa go to ropes. Jade drags Rosa up but Rosa lands on her feet! Jade waistlocks, Rosa switches, gets the leg, SHIN BREAKER! Rosa says this is it! She has the leg, steps through, FIGURE FOUR!! Sterling is freaking out as Jade endures! Jade drags herself over, Rosa puts as much as she can into the hold, but Jade gets back to the ROPEBREAK!

Sterling gets Jade a drink of water, but the ref has him back off! Rosa goes after Jade while Sterling and the ref argue. Rosa wants the figure four again but Jade BOOTS her into buckles! And then someone SMASHES Rosa in the head!! Who was that in the hoodie and jacket!? Jade gets Rosa’s arms, for the JADED!! Cover, Jade wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall (advances to the finals)

Was that sneak attack part of the plan Sterling alluded to earlier? Jade’s undefeated streak and title opportunity both still live because of that, but then Rosa hits a THESZ PRESS! The mystery person comes back to attack again! Rosa gets mugged by them both, and the mystery person reveals themselves to be MERCEDES MARTINEZ! Mean Ms. Mercedes is back in AEW, and she is helping Jade beat down Rosa! But here comes RUBY! The Runaway has a pipe, and she runs Jade and Mercedes off! The TBS debut will have the TBS Championship finals, will Ruby be the one to break Jade once and for all?

 

AEW takes a closer look at the coming Women’s World Championship match.

Britt Baker says, “Not only did Riho steal a win, she pissed me off.” Excalibur says Riho has Britt’s number. That has Britt shook to her core. Schiavone says Britt will use this anger to her advantage. Britt continues to say, “And all of you know, there is nothing more lethal than a pissed off DMD. This is my division.” Battle of the Belts gives us Britt VS Riho one more time! Will we see the DMD Era continue? Or will Riho become the first-ever TWO-TIME AEW Women’s World Champion in the New Year?

 

CM Punk is here!

And for the first time, Daily’s Place gets to sing Cult of Personality for the Best in the World! Punk gets the mic, fans are thunderously chanting his name, and then he speaks. “I’ve never been to Daily’s Place, I don’t even know what the set up is. Where’s Jim Ross?” Punk looks and finds him on commentary. Punk comes out here and immediately thinks how awesome it is to see JR back in the booth. Punk knows JR is the best to ever do it, glad to see him back to work. JR thanks Punk for that. Punk says he’s about giving people flowers when they deserve it. Then he thinks about Daily’s Place. He hasn’t been here before, but he knows it is a home for AEW.

So that gets Punk thinking about Brodie Lee. Fans chant “BRODIE! BRODIE!” If there’s anybody out there that says anything to try and minimize the impact that man has, that makes Punk feel sorry for them, because it means they never met him. Punk sat at home, saw that tribute show to his friend from here, and it made Punk want to come here. So then Punk got to thinking about someone not worth his time, someone who doesn’t want to be here. And speaking of internet trolls, Punk is talking about MJF. MJF is a Twitter troll in the flesh. He talks a big game, but when it comes down to it, he won’t say that to your face. He hides behind a keyboard, or in this case, FTR.

Punk saw it with his own eyes, as did the fans. Someone smart enough to say the people want to see Punk VS MJF, but is also stupid enough to say something that MJF is as good as Roddy Piper in Portland. Well, Piper would lace up his wrestling boots, while MJF clearly laced up his running shoes. Not sure if you heard, but MJF says he’s done with Punk. Honestly, Punk’s fine with that. He got to team with Sting and Darby Allin, and they beat FTR & MJF! Punk gets it if MJF is afraid, if he don’t want none, he doesn’t have to have none. But Punk is looking towards bigger and better. Punk knows MJF wants gold, he wants the AEW World Championship.

JR will attest to this, “If you don’t want to be the champion, you probably shouldn’t be here.” That’s true! Punk wants to be champion, too. There’s beginnings and endings, and being here in Daily’s Place, the place that’s been so good to AEW, and it’s also the last Dynamite on TNT, it’s moving to TBS, there is bigger and brighter things on the horizon. So MJF, you are a waste of Punk’s time, and a bigger waste of Khan money than Tim Tebow. The fans really liked that last part! Punk will leave us with this: He never wanted to mess with MJF, but MJF found out the hard way that on the mic, in the ring, and even on commentary, no one can touch Punk!

If MJF wants to climb the ladder and get to the gold, then sooner or later, they’ll see each other again in the ring. But it’d be a real shame if someone interfered with MJF’s quest for gold. When and where will the Best in the World face off with the Salt of the Earth on the road to the title?

 

Ricky Starks speaks.

“We’d like to send a welcome back to Jim Ross. Thank you, man, I’m glad that you’re back. Because now you have freed up Taz’s time, so he can devote that to making sure that Hook is a beast of a competitor. And in fact, you can hear Technique By Taz on Rampage. But more importantly, I want to talk to you, Dante.” Dante Martin screwed over Team Taz when he threw Starks out of the ring, and thereby screwed his chances of ever having a successful career. So if Ricky can’t win the ring, then Dante won’t win a damn thing, either. Dante’s stalled out, and Starks is a big fan of history. Last time Dante and Will Hobbs had at it, we all know how that went.

Hobbs will refresh Dante’s memory. Does Dante really want to go to a round two with Hobbs? Marinate on that. Will Angel Dorado run into the Powerhouse of Team Taz and be bulldozed on behalf of Absolute Ricky Starks?

 

Sammy Guevara is here!

He only just lost his AEW TNT Championship to Cody Rhodes on the Christmas edition of Rampage, but he has his cue cards for this picture in picture message. “Bobby Fish, Ethan Page, Jay Lethal, Tony Nese. Five matches as a champ, 4 successful defenses, 3 month title reign, 2 Cross Rhodes later, I lost my championship. That’s 1 memory I won’t forget! With New Year’s upon us, I have my resolution. BEAT THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE! WIN BACK MY TITLE! And once again BE THE TNT CHAMPION!” Will the Spanish God rise up and reclaim the gold in 2022?

 

Hikaru Shida speaks.

“Serena Deeb. ‘Professor.’ I’m going to teach you a lesson today.” Serena Deeb asked for it when she pulled down the turnbuckle’s pad. It was all her fault, and yet she says Shida cheated? Don’t whine! Just ask for the rematch. And Shida’s answer: “Bring it! I’ll beat you down again!”

 

Schiavone is in the ring with Brian Pillman Jr!

Schiavone wants BPJ’s reaction to these last couple of weeks in regards to the actions of Malakai Black. BPJ says what happened was that in Greensboro, North Carolina, BPJ’s tag partner and brother, Griff Garrison, “walked right into the House of Black.” Admittedly, BPJ can’t remember that night. But what he can’t get out of his head is the sound of the bell ringing over and over again while Malakai tried to end Griff’s career! So what did BPJ do? He stormed in to protect his brother. But as he got up, that’s where things are a bit fuzzy, and his memory goes completely black. Next thing BPJ knows, he’s right down on the ground next to the person he was trying to protect.

So congratulations to Malakai on the cheap shot! It wasn’t the first and it won’t be the last. As a second generation wrestler, BPJ has busted his ass day in and day out since day one, right here in Jacksonville, Florida! BPJ calls out Malakai, and says it is his turn to take a trip. BPJ won’t kick down the door, that’s what Malakai wants. BPJ never knew his father, what kind of man he really was, but what he learned from Brian Pillman Senior’s life is that you only get one! BPJ isn’t giving Malakai his! Next week, we see a brand new Brian Pillman Junior! But then the lights go out! And on stage, appears MALAKAI! Malakai takes off the hood and mask, and points to BPJ!

The lights then go out again, and Malakai disappears. BPJ is seething, but will being bulletproof be enough to survive the House of Black?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage New Year’s Smash!

After being called out by the Men of the Year and Dan Lambert, as well as assaulting brother Dustin, Cody Rhodes is stepping up! Cody puts his TNT Championship on the line against Ethan Page! Will All Ego take that title right off the American Nightmare to close out the year? Plus, Darby Allin takes on Anthony Bowens 1v1 in a big singles showdown!

 

The Acclaimed speak.

Max Caster says, “Ain’t it funny how in AEW, to be in the main event, you gotta wrestle the main event tag team, huh?” The main event ain’t even ranked! The Acclaimed is a well oiled machine! Caster even helps Bowens oil up. Bowens tells Darby that this Friday, they get in the ring so Bowens can beat that “My Chemical Romance looking ass all over Jacksonville to ring in the New Year!” Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! And that’s a mic drop!

Sting & Darby respond!

Sting marvels at how many people can talk about main event matches so casually. When Sting started, every match he was in was treated like the main event. Just food for thought. Darby says many have tried to stop them, but all they’ve done is try. Darby could be the first match or the last match on the card, but he has no ego. It doesn’t matter. So Bowens, Rampage New Year’s Smash, “I’m ready.”

But wait! There’s more!

As Ricky Starks mentioned, there will be a Technique By Taz all about Hook for Rampage! And then, to finally settle things before the year is over, Penelope Ford & The Bunny take on #TayJay, Tay Conti & Anna Jay, in a TAG TEAM STREET FIGHT!

AEW hears from the four women in that Tag Team Street Fight.

Anna Jay says, “Tay and I have both beaten Penelope Ford & The Bunny fair and square.” Tay adds, “A bunch of times.” But those two have also cheated. So now they can just have a Street Fight where there are no rules. The Bunny is sure Conti thinks she’s so tough with the blackbelts and the kicks, but this isn’t karate, kids. And in the end, the good guys won’t win. Ford says, “We’re the most psychotic bitches in town. And who knows what toys we’ll bring this Friday night on Rampage.”

 

Six Man Tag: Orange Cassidy & Best Friends VS Adam Cole, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly!

Freshly Squeezed, the Kentucky Gentleman and #JustTrent have all had their problems with the Panama City Playboy, the Infamous One and the Violent Artist, some of this going all the way back to their days in ROH! But now that they’re all #AllElite, will Cole, Fish & O’Reilly still be undisputed? Or will there be some doubt left in their minds after taking on literal Best Friends?

The trios sort out, Kyle starts against Chuck Taylor. They circle, feel it out, and Kyle KICKS Chuck’s leg. Chuck gets a headlock, Kyle powers out but Chuck runs Kyle over. Things speed up and Kyle hits a kitchen sink knee! Chuck gets away to the corner while fans chant, “Undisputed! Undisputed!” Trent tags in, he and Kyle circle. Kyle KICKS, Trent blocks but Kyle SLAPS free! Trent fires a forearm, Kyle gives it back, and they go back and forth. Kyle KICKS the leg, Trent CHOPS, but Kyle KIKCS.

Fish snapmares Cassidy near ropes, then goes out and slingshots in, only for Cassidy to avoid the senton! Cassidy raises his hands, but Fish rushes out after him!

Tag to Cole, Cole whips Cassidy to a corner, but Cassidy goes up and out and slingshots in to get around and shove Cole into the corner! Tag to Trent, he fires forearms, then tags Chuck. Best Friends double whip corner to corner, then they wave Cassidy on. Cassidy winds up and goes as fast as a sloth can, Chuck forearm smashes first! Trent clotheslines, Cassidy arrives to feed Cole to double shoulders! The Best Friends shake hands to double elbow drop! But reDRagon gets in to attack Best Friends! They whip, Best Friends CLOBBER each of them!

Kyle is sent out, then Fish. Best Friends bring it in, but Cole & reDRagon ruin the group hug! Kyle BOOTS Cassidy down, Cole bumps Chuck off buckles. Chuck reverses the whip but Cole sends him out. Chuck DECKS Fish, ROCKS Cole, but Kyle gets the leg for a DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Fish sweeps the legs! Chuck crashes down and Cole soaks up the heat. Cole takes his time going to Chuck as AEW goes picture in picture.

Cole drags Chuck up, POSTS him, then drags Chuck up and into the ring. Cole drags Chuck up to turn and NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Tag to Kyle, he stomps Chuck, then drags Chuck up to wrench the arm. ELBOW BREAKER, another wrench, and Kyle wrangles Chuck down to a hammerlock. Kyle KNEES and CLUBS the arm, then KNEES and CLUBS the other side. Kyle runs to SLIDING KNEE! Then he fish hooks Chuck’s nose! The ref reprimands, Kyle tags Fish, reDRagon mugs Chuck. Fish wrenches and uppercuts Chuck’s arm, then wrenches it again to CLUB it. Fish puts Chuck in the corner, stomps him and digs in a boot.

The ref counts, Fish distracts the ref so Cole and Kyle can get shots in! Cole and Kyle let off before the ref sees it, and Fish digs his knee in. The ref counts that, Fish lets off at 4 to tag Cole. Cole drags Chuck up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Cole keeps on Chuck with a chinlock but Chuck endures. Chuck fights up, throws body shots, but Cole CLUBS him then throws him out. The ref keeps his eyes on reDRagon as AEW returns to single picture. Cole says the ref should be wary of Cassidy, and that gives Kyle the opening! Kyle whips Chuck but Chuck reverses and Kyle crashes into railing! Chuck CLOBBERS Fish, but runs into Cole’s fireman’s carry! USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO!

Fans rally up, Cole stalks Chuck, but he SUPERKICKS Cassidy down! Trent glares at Cole but Cole tags to Kyle. Cole rushes Chuck but he gets thrown out! Chuck BOOTS Kyle, hot tag to Trent!

Winners: Adam Cole, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly, by pinfall

It seems the Bucks were willing to work with reDRagon because of their mutual friend in Adam Cole! The ref raises reDRagon’s hands, but the Bucks act like reDRagon neglected Cole? Then maybe there isn’t cohesion between all of Cole’s comrades?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite to close out the TNT Era and go into the TBS Era. Well, apparently Rampage stays on TNT, since it’s just an hour on Fridays, but we’re apparently going to be getting plenty of “Saturday Night Fights” specials from now on. But speaking of which, what is even the point of Battle of the Belts now that we’re getting so much on the TBS premiere? The AEW World Championship got a great hype vignette for Hangman VS Danielson II, and given how big it is, putting it on the TBS premiere does make sense since that episode needs to be big. And same goes for the TBS Championship match, because duh, it’s the TBS Championship.

But why are we putting the AEW World Tag Team Championships on the TBS premiere? It’s great that we’re getting that match but I thought we were getting it for Battle of the Belts. Is Battle of the Belts only an hour? That’s a bit of a shame, that just makes it like a themed Rampage. At least it’s getting the AEW Women’s World Championship, which also got a good hype vignette. But at the same time, Britt VS Riho seems easy to call: Britt retains. I feel like the same goes for the tag title match. The Lucha Brothers are just that good of a tag team. And they’ve got plenty of teams they can take on in the TBS Era to really excite the fans.

The TBS Championship semifinal match tonight was great stuff, especially with the story of Rosa going after the legs. And they even had a good way of protecting Rosa while still keeping Jade going with Mercedes attacking Rosa. Mercedes has gone back and forth between AEW and WWE, and with WWE having thrown her away again, I’m thinking Mercedes is going to stay in AEW and be part of Sterling’s “client list.” Jade VS Ruby is going to be awesome, but I’m thinking Jade wins to live up to #ThatBitchShow. And Rampage giving us the Tag Team Street Fight blow off for Ford & Bunny VS TayJay is going to be great stuff, too, and I hope the Faces win there.

The Six Man Tag of Kingston, Santana & Ortiz VS Garcia & 2point0 was great stuff, especially with Kingston so obsessed with getting after Garcia. I should’ve figured Garcia & 2point0 would cheat to win, but I also figured it’d bring Jericho out after them. I’m pretty sure this now means Kingston and Jericho will have to work together to settle things with Garcia & 2point0, and somehow they do to come out on top. Then after that, we need Proud ‘n’ Powerful feuding with Lucha Brothers, mostly because Santana & Ortiz need that feud. Sammy had a good cue card promo, but I’m not sure if he’ll get that TNT title off Cody.

Speaking of, Cody VS Ethan for this week’s Rampage is great news. To think it would be Brandi Rhodes who made a Dan Lambert segment great stuff. Her line about blackbelt VS Black bitch was awesome! And while I’m pretty sure Cody retains, I now want Rhodes Brothers VS Men of the Year. That could end up with Cody wanting the tag titles, and adding more heat to his Face Not Face story. Cody could be one title away from the Triple Crown, and then in the ultimate Heel move, he undoes the world title embargo he put on himself early on and tries to take the title from Hangman or whoever.

And then speaking of the world title, great stuff from MJF and CM Punk. I hope both of these guys start having regularly scheduled matches on Dynamite, that’ll help with the transition to TBS. AEW Revolution is going to be later in the year than before, so that gives both guys plenty of time to build up and then end up the #1 and #2 contenders, who will then have to face each other to determine THE #1 contender to the title. MJF also slipped in the news of the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match 2, and I actually do hope Wardlow wins, then wins the TNT title, so he can smack MJF with it and effectively quit The Pinnacle.

Then last but not least, we got awesome stuff out of the building Adam Cole story. Great promo to loosely reference Cole VS Kyle in NXT while also resetting their kayfabe for AEW, and then we got a great main event Six Man Tag. Maybe even PPV tier, since this was the last Dynamite on TNT. The Bucks helping reDRagon win but then acting like reDRagon were in the wrong was a great bit of mind games from the Bucks, and I have a feeling that the Bucks’ attempts at keeping Cole with them will backfire so that Cole sides with reDRagon. Then Kenny Omega comes back, he’s upset with Cole, we get our ultimate Six Man of The Elite VS Undisputed Era at like Double or Nothing 2022.

My Score: 9.1/10

Just last night on Rampage, The Spanish God called out the Don Callis Family, and then got jumped by the Don Callis Family! Callis and the rest of the family has been banned from ringside, as has Chris Jericho, this must be settled between Sammy and Hobbs! Will there be anything left of Sammy to return home to his wife and daughter? Or will The Book of Hobbs call for no mercy and no remains?

Hobbs tells Kevin to stand up so Kevin does, and then Hobbs demands Kevin hand over his belt. His belt? Hobbs tells him again, give over the belt. Kevin gives in and hands said belt over. 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!

But Sammy slips free, and CUTTERS to the steps!! Sammy gets the belt now and he LASHES Hobbs in return!

Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a table! The fans fire up as Sammy sets the table up nearby. Sammy has security move aside, so he can slide that chair off the table and into Hobbs! Sammy then adds another table! If one is good, more must be better! The fans fire up with Sammy as he has those side by side. Hobbs goes to the apron but Sammy climbs up. Sammy aims and leaps, but Hobbs catches him again!! And he SPINEBUSTERS Sammy through the tables!!! All of Springfield, Missouri lose their minds while the ref checks on both men, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Hobbs snarls as he slowly rises up out of the wreckage. Sammy stirs but Hobbs clears out the debris to bring him up. Hobbs HEADBUTTS Sammy and Sammy staggers away. Sammy gets in the ring but Hobbs pursues. Hobbs climbs the corner?! Hobbs then FLYING LARIATS! The Powerhouse proves he can fly, then he covers, TWO!! Sammy survives but Hobbs grinds him into the mat! Hobbs talks trash on Sammy while he fishhooks the nose and pulls on the ear! Hobbs then drags Sammy up, whips him to a corner hard, and Sammy drops to his knees. Hobbs looms over Sammy, eggs him on, and the fans rally up.

Hobbs talks more trash, stands Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into another corner! Collision returns to single picture as Sammy crawls around. Hobbs looms over Sammy again, slaps him around, and then whips him into another corner! Hobbs runs up, Sammy dodges and Hobbs hits buckles! Sammy uses the corner to help in the torture rack! Fans fire up as Sammy carries Hobbs, and GO TO HOSPITAL!! Cover, TWO?!? Hobbs survives and Sammy is shocked! The fans rally as Sammy hurries to find himself something more. Sammy takes a monitor from the timekeeper!

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! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

The fans are loving it, because now we’ve entered TLC territory! Sammy gets that ladder in the ring while the fans lose their minds! Sammy moves table number three outta the way so he can stand his ladder up. And it’s a big ladder! Fans chant “Please Don’t Die!” because this is extra crazy even for Sammy!

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!

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!

“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!

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.

Bronson goes up the ropes to HIP DROP Colten! Tag to Jameson, he HIP DROPS Colten! Boulder tags in, he stomps around and the fans fire up. Boulder brings Colten up, to suplex high and hard! Boulder then says bang bang to mock BBSG. Boulder shakes those hips, tags Jameson, and they double whip Colten, only for Colten to BLAST Bronson!

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?

Winner: Malakai Black, by pinfall

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?

Eddie Kingston makes his way to the ring!

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

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? Will Dante, Darius & The Sight to See be flying high? Or will the Bounty Hunter, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion and The Man with No Fear steal the spotlight from them all?

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle. They tie up, go around, and Sydal headlocks for a takeover. Action stands up but Sydal hits another takeover. Sydal then snapmares but Action handsprings through! Fans cheer and the two go again. Sydal tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Action handsprings through again! Action dusts himself off, but Sydal runs up. Action wrenches, CHOPS, and then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG! Fans fire up as Action DROPKICKS Sydal down!

Action kips up and smiles while Top Flight talks some smack to Private Party. Action then runs and IMPLODER TORNILLOS onto Sydal! Cover, ONE, but Action tags Darius. They double whip Sydal, but Sydal KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS! Fans fire up with Sydal and he gets a “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant going. Sydal KICKS Darius’ leg over an dover, but Darius catches him to a pump-handle GUTBUSTER! Then GAMANGIRI! Sydal flounders away, Bryan Keith tags in! Keith runs up but Darius headlocks. Keith powers up and out, Darius RAMS him, but Keith rebounds to BOOT! Darius falls, Kassidy tags in!

The fans rally as Zay dodges Keith, fires “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” and then ROCKS Keith. Zay whips, Keith reverses, but Zay goes up and Quen tags in. Zay RANAS Keith into Quen’s GAMANGIRI! Then Quen springboards to SPLASH Keith! Cover, TWO! Keith is still in this and he tags out to Penta! The fans fire up as Penta somersaults in, but Quen shows he can somersault, too. The fans rally for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tells Quen to listen, CERO! MIEDO! Queen says okay, but “What do we want? SHOTS!” Quen shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove. The fans fire up, and Penta makes the pass to Alex Abrahantes!

Penta says again, CERO! MIEDO! Another pie face, but Dante tags in off Quen. Dante shoves Penta but then Komander tags in. Quen jumps on Dante, he and Penta mug him, and then everyone else rushes in! It’s a nine man melee and the ref reprimands them all! Things spill out, Dante and Komander stay in. Dante breaks free to JUMP KNEE, then runs, but Komander dodges! Dante mule kicks, whips, but Komander reverses to hook Dante up, COBRA TWIST, into a tilt-o-whirl RANA! Fans fire up as Dante flounders to a corner. Komander runs corner to corner but Dante dodges! Komander elbows back, then SUPERKICKS!

Dante flounders away, Komander jumps up top, and Komander tightrope walks to ARABIAN PRESS ARM-DRAG! Then a DROPKICK! The fans fire up as Komander covers, TWO! Komander tags Penta before he runs in, but Dante jumps up and over! Penta runs in to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Dante staggers up, into a SUPERKICK! Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

Komander feeds Dante to Keith’s fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, Zay breaks it! The fans rally, Quen tags in off Keith, and Quen stomps away on Action as Rampage goes picture in picture!

Quen stomps and stomps but the ref counts. Quen lets off to drag Action up and bump him off buckles. Quen runs up to RAM Action, then tags in Zay. Private Party keeps Action trapped, Zay ENZIGIRIS Action down! Zay stomps now, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Zay lets off to kick-step, then he tags Sydal. They stomp Action, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Sydal lets off to rally the fans, then he drags Action up. Action throws body shots but Sydal CLUBS him down. Sydal stands Action up again to back suplex, but Action lands out, only for Sydal to HEEL KICK! Tag to Quen and Quen slingshot SENTONS!

But Penta’s right there! APRON FEAR FACTOR!! Penta rises but Zay springboards, triangle jump STUNNER! Quen gets in, Zay gives him the boost to go up and up and SUPER SWANTON onto everyone else!!

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
