PLAY BY PLAY

JON MOXLEY heads to the ring!

DC goes nuts for the Maniac as he enters from the bleachers. Moxley throws his bottle of water to the crowd, kicks a trash can out of the way, then pushes through the railing to get to the ring. Mox gets the mic as fans chant his name, and then chant, “Welcome Back! Welcome Back!” Moxley throws off the jacket to then say, “Little while ago, I was asleep on a plane, it landed in some city I don’t know. And it woke me out of a dream, it was a bad dream. And I don’t remember anything about it, but I remember I was on the side of the road, on my hands and knees in the dirt, my face was bruised and cut up, and there was a black cloud, like a demon. The kind of demon that follows you around your whole life.” Everyone has these demons.

The cloud laughed at Moxley and told him that everything good in his life wasn’t supposed to be his. The cloud said, “Did you really think you were gonna make it out?” Then Moxley woke up before he could answer. No one gets through life unscathed. He has more scars on his body than the average person but that’s not important. The important scars are the ones on the inside that are harder to see. Sometimes you pretend the scars aren’t there, but those are the ones you should be proud of because those tell your story and make you the people that you are! No one is perfect, or else the world would be very boring.

So don’t be afraid to stand up in front of the world and bare it all! You should stand up, bare it all and say, “Hey! This is me!” But that said, there are people out there that want to write Moxley off, that doubt him. They’re not the first and they’re not the last. If you wanna doubt him, think what you wanna. He’ll tell you what he told the cloud, “Shove it up your ass!” So for everyone around the world who has had Mox’s back, he thanks you. Buckle up and get ready for a ride, baby! The year 2022, Mox is going on a pilgrimage to take the world of wrestling by the balls and do whatever he wants! Now more than ever, Jon Moxley is free!

And Mox will tell us this: He’s been to hell and back, it is rather liberating. No one can put him through something he hasn’t already been through, but he dares people to try. Cuz Mox is thirsty. Mox was dangerous before, but nowadays, all he drinks is blood! Who will be crazy enough to take on an invigorated and liberated Maniac?

 

MJF speaks.

“Last week as an abomination, an embarrassment to our great sport. When your hero, CM Punk, was powerbomb’d over and over again into what I can only assume is early-onset spinal stenosis, and what did he do? Instead of taking the loss on the chin like a man, he decided to take the easy way out. He decided to pull Wardlow in by his hair and by his tights and get a tainted pinfall victory. Granted, if Wardlow had a teeny tiny bit more seasoning, I’m sure he could’ve reversed it, but that’s not what I’m here to talk to you about today.”

MJF wants to apologize. Wait, really? Not only has Wardlow been a stellar employee, but a stellar friend for the better part of two years and two months. It is Wardlow’s birthday, so MJF’s gift is an apology for losing his cool. However, the big man put his hands on MJF. Frankly, that is not something MJF can allow, that is a bad precedent for AEW. As much as it pains MJF to do this, he’ll be docking Wardlow pay. Now, if he gets wins and qualifies for the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match to win MJF the TNT Championship, then MJF promises Wardlow that the money will go right back up. MJF believes in Wardlow, just as he does the greatest accountabilibuddy ever, Shawn Spears!

MJF believes Spears will give “PG Punk” that first L in AEW, and will show the world, and Wardlow, how to get the job done. And MJF will be on commentary to call all the action. Because Maxwell Jacob Friedman is better than you, and you know it. MJF pats Wardlow on the shoulder, but will Wardlow find a way to return his birthday present?

 

Mixed Tag Match: Orange Cassidy & Kris Statlander VS Adam Cole & Britt Baker!

The beef between the Best Friends and the Super Ultra Mega Kliq is reaching a boiling point! Freshly Squeezed & The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien team together to take on the Panama City Playboy & The Dentist, will it be all about anything else than the Boom? Or will DC belong to Cole & Britt Baker, DMD?

The teams sort out, and it’s ladies first as Kris and Britt circle. But then Britt chickens out and tags Cole. Kris backs down, Cassidy steps in, but then Cole trolls Cassidy to tag Britt back in. Cassidy wants to throw hands but Britt dares him to break the rules. Cassidy considers it, and he shin kicks her! And again! And again! And again! But then she stomps his foot! Britt laughs, but Kris gets in and scoops her! To SLAM her! And to BOOP her! Things speed up, Kris blocks a kick to spin and scoop Britt again! Britt gets free, tag to Cole! Cassidy goes to a corner while Cole talks trash to Kris. Kris wants to punch Cole, but Cassidy climbs up, and Cassidy CROSSBODIES!

Cassidy speeds up, tilt-o-whirls but Cole blocks the DDT to shove and BOOT! Cole fireman’s carries, Cassidy slips out to shove and dodge to then tilt-o-whirl DDT! Cole bails out, fans fire up and Cassidy raises his hands. Britt gets in but Cassidy dodges, for Kris to kick and suplex! Cassidy and the fans rally up while Kris holds Britt, and then Cassidy “speeds up” to nudge them over! Fans fire up as Cassidy flexes! Kris also flexes, and then they both go to the apron. They raise their hands, Cassidy puts his in his pockets, and Kris PENDULUM MOONSAULTS! Cassidy FALLS onto Cole! Fans fire up as Cassidy takes a victory lap.

Cassidy and Kris regroup, and they HUG! GOT to give the people what they want! But then DOUBLE SUPERKICKS from Cole and Britt take them down! Then they kiss! Cole gives a thumbs up while Britt stomps Kris. Cole drags Cassidy up and POSTS him as AEW goes picture in picture!

Britt mocks Cassidy’s pockets while Cole puts Cassidy in the ring. Cole rains down fists on Cassidy, but he lets off to then soak up the cheers and jeers. Cole stalks Cassidy to a corner, drags him back up and ROCKS him with a big forearm. Cole then wrenches, whips corner to corner hard, and Cassidy bounces off buckles while Cole flexes. Cole drags Cassidy back up, turns him, and hits a NECKBREAKER! Cole sits Cassidy up and wraps on a chinlock. Cole grinds Cassidy down, Cassidy fights up, and Cassidy pries at he hold. Cassidy gets free, but runs into a back elbow! Cole then sits Cassidy up to rain down elbows into the shoulders and neck!

Cole wraps on a headscissor necklock and squeezes tight. Cassidy endures, pries at the hold but Cole clamps on tighter. Cassidy moves around, and around, and a little more, then he bounces and bounces to shake free! Cole is right after Cassidy with more fists! Cole looms over Cassidy and brings him up in the corner. Cole wrenches, whips, and Cassidy hits buckles hard again! AEW returns to single picture and Cole drags Cassidy up to whip the other way. Cassidy goes up and out then slingshots in, DOUBLE LARIATS take both men down! A standing count starts as both men crawl, hot tags to Britt and Kris!

Kris rallies on Britt, and hits an STO BACKBREAKER! Kris drags Britt up to whip her into a corner, and runs in to FOREARM! Kris runs side to side to blow snot on Cole, then runs back to KNEE Britt! Kris gets Britt up, BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO! Britt survives but Kris fires up and the fans are with her. Kris drags Britt up, reels her in, suplexes, but Britt slips out to ripcord. Kris ducks, Britt follows, arm-drags, lateral press to a backslide, TWO! Kris and Britt stand, Kris changes the hooks to Gory Especial! Britt flips off, kicks low, fisherman SCREW! Both women are down and fans fire up again!

Another standing count starts, Cassidy fires up and the fans rally with him. Britt and Kris crawl, hot tag to Cole! Cassidy jumps in and the haymakers start flying! Cassidy gets the edge, Cole wobbles, but Cole uses 52 Fake Out! Then he blows a kiss, but Cassidy blocks to spin Cole. Cole ENZIGURIS through! Cole suplexes, STUN-DOG MILLIONAIRE from Cassidy! Britt tags as Cassidy Alabama lifts. Britt saves Cole, to CURB STOMP Cassidy! But Kris BOOTS Britt! Scoop and SPINNING MICHINOKU! Cover, TWO!! Britt survives, but Kris drags her to a drop zone. Fans rally up as Kris climbs, but Cole shields Britt!

Kris decides whatever, AREA 451!! Tag to Cassidy, and he scoops Cole, BEACH BREAK!! Cover, TWO?!! Both men are down but fans are fired up! “This is Awesome!” as Cassidy stands. Cassidy grits his teeth, throws off his elbow pad, and he runs at Cole, only for Cole to bail out! So Cassidy builds speed to FLY, into a SUPERKICK! Cole tells fans to shut their mouths, and then he goes to the corner. Cole hops up and aims at Cassidy, but Kris throws Cassidy into the ring! Fans fire up as Cole grins, and he decides to go through with it! But then Britt SUPERKICKS Kris so he doesn’t have to. Britt hops on, DESTROYER on the ramp!!

Cole aims in the ring, PANAMA SUNRISE to Cassidy! Cover, TWO?!!? Cassidy survives and neither Cole nor Britt can believe it! But fans are loving “A E DUB!” Cole goes out and has the timekeeper clear out. Cole and Britt grab the table, bring it closer to ringside, and Cole goes in to fetch Cassidy. But Cassidy runs in, Cole dodges the Orange Punch! Cassidy bumps Britt off the apron and Britt falls through the table! Everyone is shocked, and Cole is furious! The ref is checking on Britt, Cole LOW BLOWS Cassidy, then brings down the knee pad! THE BOOM!! But the ref is still checking Britt! He finally gets in, counts, Cole and Britt win!

Winners: Adam Cole & Britt Baker, by pinfall

But Britt sure doesn’t feel like a winner after what happened. Cole pushes medics aside to check on Britt himself. Will the AEW Women’s World Champion still be alright after her and Cole’s idea almost cost them?

 

Backstage interview with the Inner Circle.

Namely, it is Chris Jericho, Santana & Ortiz. Alex Marvez brings up how Eddie Kingston got injured last week at the hands of Daniel Garcia & 2point0. But next week, that trio faces this trio 3v3. Jericho doesn’t really care about Kingston, and says Kingston can GFY. But as for 2point0 and Garcia- Ortiz stops Jericho there, and says with all due respect, Jericho may not like Kingston, but Ortiz & Santana do. So tread carefully talking about him. And another thing. Santana knows Kingston said some truth last week. Maybe Jericho is why Proud ‘n’ Powerful aren’t the AEW World Tag Team Champions.

Everyone from The Elite to the Pinnacle and now Garcia & 2point0, Santana & Ortiz have been fighting Jericho’s battles. When has Jericho had their back? Every week! No, no, no. When did Jericho truly have their back? Maybe next week, Santana & Ortiz can prove they don’t need Jericho to win. “Maybe next week we’ll focus more on us, instead of this. Feel me?” Jericho says he doesn’t feel that. But other than that, Jericho is at a loss for words. Is the Inner Circle falling apart at the seams?

 

Backstage interview with Adam Cole.

Alex Marvez points out the pyrrhic victory Cole & Britt got, but Cole tells him to leave. Cole says Orange Cassidy has been a thorn in Cole’s side for far too long. And then he goes and puts his hands on Cole’s girlfriend! Cole has done everything, beating Cassidy in singles and a mixed tag match! What more does he have to do? But then Cole realized, with next week being AEW Beach Break, instead of Cassidy being a thorn in Cole’s side, Cole will destroy him! Cole proposes Cole VS Cassidy an ANYTHING GOES, LIGHTS OUT MATCH!! Cole can’t stand to look at Cassidy’s stupid face anymore, so it’s time to end Cassidy’s pathetic career!

Will the Panama City Playboy no longer be playing games when he looks to crush Freshly Squeezed?

 

AEW shares CM Punk’s comments after last week’s Dynamite.

“Spears, huh? Okay.” Spears himself said that who he is is obvious, but what he is is much harder to explain. The Chair Man is who MJF sends to make sure a message is understood. Spears doesn’t play within the lines, there will be no warning and he’ll never apologize. Punk says Spears is the last guy in the way of Punk VS MJF. MJF is running out of bodies and luck, and before MJF knows it, he’ll have no choice but to get in the ring with Punk, at a time and in a place he really won’t want to.

CM Punk VS Shawn Spears!

The Best in the World more or less survived The Pinnacle’s War Dog, but a win is a win. However, will The Chair Man finish off what’s left of Punk so that MJF no longer has to fear him? Or is this last pawn going to be cleared out so that Punk can put MJF in checkmate?

But after Punk makes his entrance, MJF makes his to join commentary, just as promised. The bell rings and Punk gets Spears right away for a spin, fireman’s carry, and G T S!! Cover, Punk wins!!!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall

MJF is pissed! He barely got to say a word on commentary, and also his supposed ace in the hole looks more like a joker! But then MJF slithers in as Punk celebrates, only for Punk to be ready. MJF steps back and tries to laugh this off, but then Punk gets him by his scarf! MJF ducks out to run away, but Punk knows how close he came to making contact. Will MJF have no choice but to

 

The Gunn Club took control of a camera.

Billy Gunn is there to see Christian Cage walking up. Billy gives Captain Charisma a hard time over showing up late and making Billy wait. Christian says it’s good to see him, too. But Billy gets to business by bringing up how his boys, Austin & Colten, are ranked in the top five tag teams. And he thinks it’s about time they get a shot at the tag titles that Christian’s boys, Jurassic Express, hold. Is that what he thinks? Okay. Well here’s the thing. There is no doubting the talent Austin & Colten have. They have Billy’s genes! They’re big, strong, fast. But when the lights were brightest, Billy could never get that big win. And the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Maybe when they make a statement.

Billy keeps Christian from walking away, but Christian pushes him. So Colten CLOBBERS him from outta nowhere! Billy tells Christian he doesn’t know who he’s talking to, and then he THROWS Christian into a garage door! Austin & Colten drag Christian up to SLAM him into the garage door together! “Statement made.” But what will Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus have in response?

 

Cody Rhodes is here!

The American Nightmare rises up from below the stage, holding onto his AEW TNT Championship belt. The Go Big Show gets a plug in picture in picture while he goes to the ring. Cody fires up, kisses the belt, then takes his time going around the ring to soak up all the cheers and jeers of DC. Cody then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a LADDER! Well this certainly has to do with the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match returning, as Cody gets some help getting the ladder in the ring. Cody stands the very tall ladder up and then shows off the belt a little more. AEW then returns to single picture as Cody gets a mic.

Fans are torn, but Cody asks what they wanna talk about. He’s reminded from that last match about a man who once sat on a stage just like that, looked in a ring just like this, and he gave one of the most important addresses in the history of this sport. It inspired thousands of would-be wrestlers, mobilized literally millions of fans, and it was the first hint of a revolution. Cody of course means CM Punk and his pipe bomb. Cody was told to save this promo, but he doesn’t know when he’ll get a better chance so he’ll say it now. In that interview, the first whiff of a revolution, Punk laid out a road map and listed things that for him, for Cody, were taboo.

Things like going to NJPW, working with ROH, and ultimately teaming with The Young Bucks. As destiny would have it, as fate would have it, Punk was unable to do it, but Punk would join… The anti-Cody fans chant STFU while the pro-Cody fans boo them down. Cody says that Punk would eventually wind up here in what Pro-Wrestling Illustrated called The Comeback of the Year. But if they’re all being honest, seeing all the Punk shirts, this is the comeback of the decade, and we are all living it and loving it. Fans cheer that sentiment. But Cody says in Punk’s absence, someone did do each and every one of those things he listed. That someone was Cody!

Cody carried every ounce of empty monopoly sentiment on his shoulders, held every grain of the revolution in his hands, and each and every one of the fans cheered! Cody asks us if we want to know why he won’t “turn Heel.” It is because the fans cheered when Cody needed it the most! When his song opens with, “Wrestling has more than one royal family,” Cody is talking of himself and all of us. “People talk about the Forbidden Door. It’s a proper noun. It’s vernacular. But if you are an industry journalist who covers what we do and you disagree with anything that I say here tonight, you’re not a journalist.

“As this generation likes to say, check the receipt, check the dates. Before there was a Forbidden Door, I was the one who built it!” Fans are torn again but there are plenty who agree. Cody says he is gone for just two weeks, and he sees that the Young Bucks almost started a Wednesday Night War all over again. Cody knows reDRagon graduated hip toss class with flying colors, but Cody doesn’t need to see The Bucks beat developmentals more than once. And then Cody’s friend, Ricky Starks, gets into a tiff with Jay Lethal? “Word to the wise, the Lethal Injection is the one cutter in the business that people don’t kick out of. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

“And then one of the most talented wrestlers on the planet you’re gonna see later, Malakai Black.” Fans really cheer here. Cody says “A guy who hung two losses on my name, and everybody knows I hate to lose. A man who needed no help, added insult to injury by getting help, in the form of just this… size and speed and strength. And I know we’re not in the business of renaming people like Gunner McGillabuddy or whatever the hell it is. But not just speed and strength, balls. Because if you come to AEW and you call yourself Brody, you’ve got balls.” Cody will let us find out in 8 years what a mistake it was for when that kid shows up.

But speaking of Brodie Lee, and of Darby, of Miro, and of the TNT Champion, Sammy Guevara… This is a lineage of men, of champions, who taught us what we were taught against, what we were conditioned for 20 years, that any title that doesn’t have the word “world” in it is a secondary belt. But there are no secondary belts here. The only reason it’d be secondary is because right now, there’s two. Cody says it is clear what we’re going to do. Cody looks to the ladder. He knows Tony Khan has sent a contract in the mail to Cody and Sammy, and maybe not the contract Cody wanted, wink wink nudge nudge.

“But Sammy, at this point… Beach Break, two titles, one champion.” Cody starts climbing the ladder and asks what Sammy says to that. Cody reaches the top, holds up the belt, and it is clear that before the Face of the Revolution, AEW might be going old school! Who will be the UNDISPUTED TNT Champion?

 

Tony Schiavone is backstage with Jade Cargill, Mark Sterling, Anna Jay and John Silver.

Silver is flexing but the TBS Champion has issued an open challenge for her title. And one of the top ranked women in AEW, Anna Jay, has stepped up! Does Number 99 have what it takes to win? But Mark Sterling speaks up, saying probably not. Jade is undefeated at 24-0, but is thrilled to accept the challenge. Oh, 24-0? Well, Silver says Anna’s got 24 inch pythons, and is ranked #2! Then she’ll be the ONE that beats Jade for the title! Cuz Anna hungy! Anna tells Jade herself that there is a dark side to Anna Jay. She wrapped barbed wire around her arm just to win a match. She will do whatever it takes to win. Will Jade?

Jade says okay. But Anna needs to understand who Jade is, and where they are. This is #ThatBitchShow! Will a storm be coming for Anna Jay? Or will the Queenslayer dethrone the undefeated champion?

 

The House of Black VS The Varsity Blonds!

Malakai and Brody have reunited, and they’re ready to revolutionize through wreaking havoc! Will the current PWG Tag Team Champions crush all hope left inside Griff Garrison & Brian Pillman Jr?

The teams sort out, Griff starts against King and the two tie up. They go around, King puts Griff in the corner and Malakai tags in. Griff headlocks but Malakai powers out to CLBOBER Griff with an elbow! Malakai fires off hands in the corner, snapmares and wraps on a chinlock, but Griff gets up. King tags in, Malakai powers out to BOOT Griff, and King runs Griff over! King snarls, drags Griff up but Griff JAWBREAKERS! Malakai grabs Griff but Griff elbows free. Griff escapes a scoop, tag to BPJ! BPJ ROCKS King, but he’s second guessing going to the air. King eggs him on but BPJ drops down. Griff tries to coach BPJ up, but King goes out to run in and CLOBBERS Griff into the steps!

BPJ gets in the ring, SUPERKICKS Malakai then runs, but King blocks the dropkick to RAM BPJ into apron! King stalks BPJ, waistlocks and deadlifts, but BPJ fights off the House of Black. Malakai KICKS BPJ’s haymaker away, King ROCKS BPJ then Malakai sweeps the legs. SENTON from King! Griff gets in, King CLOBBERS him! Malakai gets BPJ up, suplex into DANTE’S INFERNO!! cover, the House of Black wins!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

“The Kings of the Black Throne” just crushed the #4 ranked team in AEW! Malakai gets a mic to say, “Members of the House of Black! Please, rise.” But then PAC calls them out ont he titantron! Thanks to then, Pac has found new vision. A new purpose. And now he truly sees them. “Malakai, you are just the same as every other cretin in AEW: self-obsessed and power hungry. And it’s exhausting.” Malakai might have some spells up his sleeve, but The Bastard is beyond even his reach now. Incorruptible! This was the moment Malakai expected Pac to bow down and call him master? No. Pac is going to make a martyr of him. Pac was blind but now he sees! Will he return to tear down the House of Black brick by brick?

 

AEW hears from Jake the Snake and Hangman Page.

Dan Lambert stays quiet in the corner as Jake says, “The value of a man is shown when he’s under fire. But what you gotta think about, Cowboy, is who are you? Show us who you are! You’re the champ. You call yourself a cowboy, I bet you’re like Clint Eastwood, allergic to horses.” Hangman can’t believe they’re arguing about how much of a cowboy he is. Do you think Bob Orton spent 8 days on the road and then came home to herd cattle? Last week, Hangman said he wanted a challenger, and now it seems he has one. Jake says Archer does not wait in line anymore! Well if he wants a shot at the world title, come get one. But if he wants a fight, Hangman will bring one to them.

Jake the Snake says Hangman means nothing to them. But when it comes time, Hangman will bite the dust. And it’s time. Will the Murderhawk Monster end Hangman’s reign already? Or will everyone see some real cowboy s*it?

 

Backstage with the #CutlerCam.

But while Brandon is looking for the Young Bucks, Rocky Romero and Trent walk in! Roppongi Vice tell Cutler that this is their promo now! And Brandon better keep rolling or they’re gonna kick his ass! Trent tells Rocky to take it easy, The Elite is always bullying Brandon. Trent apologizes and asks if they can just do something real quick. Uh, sure. Thanks, man. So Rocky says week after week, Best Friends lose to The Elite, and it’s getting tired. Rocky just got back from Japan, getting nostalgic in the mountains of Tokyo. Remember that time they beat the Bucks for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag titles in the Tokyo Dome? Yeah! A few times. In front of 30K+ people!

So Rocky is thinking, RPG Vice are the guys to beat the Bucks. Easy! The challenge is put out for Rampage! RPG Vice, one more night! Okay, Brandon, you can turn off the stupid camera, they’re done. Trent cools Rocky off and says Brandon is doing great. Real pleasure working with him. Brandon says it was nice working with them, too. The Bucks are gonna kill him, though… Then turn the camera off!

 

Lance Archer w/ Jake the Snake & Dan Lambert VS Frankie Kazarian!

The Murderhawk Monster got Hangman’s attention, and perhaps even a title match. But will the Heavy Metal Rebel prove Archer isn’t ready for such a big moment? Or will Kaz just be a very big stepping stone on the way to #PrettyPlatinum?

Archer DECKS Kaz the second he’s in reach, and then the bell rings! Archer gets on the corner to take off his shirt, offer it to the crowd, then throw it on the ground. Archer hops down and turns around, into Kaz’s forearms! Archer shoves Kaz away but Kaz comes back for more! Archer shoves Kaz again, Kaz dropkicks a leg out! Kaz ROCKS Archer, runs, but Archer follows to CLOBBER Kaz! Archer reels Kaz in for a short arm LARIAT! “This is MY house!” Archer stands Kaz up in a corner, and CHOPS him down! Kaz goes to another corner, fires off hands but Archer knees low and CLUBS away on Kaz’s back!

Archer stomps Kaz to ropes, stands on his head, but lets off as the ref counts. Archer lets off at 4, drags Kaz up and bumps him off buckles. Archer stomps Kaz, digs his boots in, but the ref counts. Archer lets off again, storms around, then stands Kaz up to ROCK him with a right! Archer brings Kaz over, throws a headlock punch, then has Kaz in the buckles. Archer digs his hands into Kaz’s face as he talks trash on Hangman’s “Cowboy bullshit.” Kaz hits back but Archer knees low. Archer suplex TOSSES Kaz! Kaz flounders up, hits back but Archer knees low and CLUBS Kaz down. Kaz grits his teeth and Archer tells fans to shut up.

Archer whips Kaz corner to corner, runs in but into an elbow! Kaz slips out, ducks one clothesline but Archer CLOBBERS Kaz with the other! Archer sneers as AEW goes picture in picture.

Archer fetches Kaz, glares at the fans, but Kaz CHOPS back. Archer doesn’t budge, Kaz throws a forearm, but Archer ROCKS him with the return. Archer chokes Kaz on the railing, and then he shots at a little girl in the front row! And then also her parents, possibly. Archer lets off on Kaz, brings him around, and POSTS him! Archer glares at fans talking trash on him, so he goes back to talking trash on the little girl. Archer follows Kaz, but Kaz SMASHES him with a cup of beer! And then fires off haymaker after haymaker! But Archer THROWS Kaz into the ring! Archer gets in, but Kaz CHOPS him! Archer doesn’t flinch, so Kaz CHOPS again! And again!

Archer swings, Kaz bobs ‘n’ weaves to throw more hands! Kaz runs, but into a DERAILER! Kaz flounders to the ramp side, but Archer just snarls and glares at the little girl. Archer drags Kaz up from the apron, chokes him on the ropes with a headlock, but lets off at 4. Archer runs side to side to DECK Kaz! The ref reprimands and Kaz sputters but Archer just soaks up the heat. Lambert is still scared of Archer, that wrath could target him again. Archer goes out but Kaz is right on him with fast hands! Archer THROWS Kaz back into the ring! Archer gets in, storm sup to Kaz and BOOTS him down! Archer stands on Kaz again but the ref counts. Archer lets off at 4 to glare at the ref.

AEW returns to single picture, Archer drags Kaz up by his ears, but Kaz pulls on the braided hair. Archer CHOPS Kaz in the corner, brings him around and asks the fans, “One more?” Fans want another, but Archer says F U and whips Kaz corner to corner hard! Kaz bounces off the buckles chest first, Lambert tells him he should just quit. Archer digs his knee into Kaz, talks trash at the little girl again, but lets off at 4. Fans call Archer a P O S but he doesn’t care. Archer CLUBS Kaz, Kaz throws a back elbow. Archer throws down another haymaker, then digs Kaz’s face into the mat, all while laughing.

Archer lets off at 4 to drag Kaz up and clamp on a choke grip. CHOKE- NO! Kaz slips out, ducks and dodges to ROCK Archer with forearms! Kaz whips but Archer blocks to reverse, but Kaz hits a FLYING FOREARM! Archer goes to a corner, but he catches Kaz and puts him in the corner for back elbows! Archer puts Kaz up top, brings him out, but Kaz fights the inverted crucifix! Kaz throws elbow after elbow, and even BITES Archer’s forehead! Lambert protests but Kaz BOOTS Archer! Kaz leaps to missile dropkick! Archer is down and fans fire up! Kaz runs to springboard, LEG DROP! Cover, ONE!!

Kaz is shocked but Archer goes to a corner. Kaz runs in to KNEE him in the back! Kaz wants the crossface but Archer pries free to ROCK him with a forearm! Choke grip, CHOKE SLAM!! Archer is fuming as he drags Kaz back up, ripcord and HELLACOASTER! Archer roars but fans boo, and Archer puts Kaz back up top. Archer inverted crucifix carries Kaz out, for the BLACKOUT!! Cover, Archer wins!

Winner: Lance Archer, by pinfall

Kaz fought his heart out, but #EverbodyDies. Lambert celebrates, Schiavone gets in the ring to congratulate Archer. But what is this new business partnership? Lambert says they don’t need to understand. Just know that Hangman isn’t “old enough” for this. He wasn’t raised outside, drink water out of a hose, run home from the Rocky movie to tell dad that he wanted to be a boxer. No, Hangman and his friends played video games and stayed inside. They sipped Perrier out of a bottle, and saw the Toy Story movies made them wanna be dairy farmers, giving handies to cows to make soy milk to sell to Starbucks! Hangman is not mentally nor physically prepared for the monster, and Lambert will-

Actually, Archer snatches the mic so he can talk. “Enough of this cowboy bullshit. I’m gonna show you what I’m gonna do.” Archer gets a chair, tosses it aside, and then fetches Kaz. Archer throws Kaz out to the ramp, positions the chair, and then brings Kaz up. Archer says it’s okay, Kaz, it’ll be over soon. Choke grip, but here comes Hangman! Fans go nuts for the champ as he gets right in Archer’s face! And then SLAPS him! Archer ROCKS Hangman but a brawl ensues! Archer knees Hangman low, gets the chair, but Hangman uses his cowboy boot to CLOBBER Archer! Then he sets up, slingshot, but into a choke grip!

Hangman breaks free for elbow after elbow! Hangman clotheslines Archer out! Lambert keeps Archer from going back for more, the title match is coming! When and where will these bulls lock horns in the ring?

 

Backstage interview with Matt Sydal, Lee Moriarty & Dante Martin.

Alex Marvez says that not only did Dante recently settle a score with Team Taz by beating “Powerhouse” Hobbs, he also saved Sydal & Moriarty from an attack. And that’s because for months, while Darius has been out, Sydal has been like a brother to Dante. So Dante has Sydal’s and Moriarty’s backs against Team Taz. Moriarty tells Dante that he’s watched their back, and until Darius is back, they’ll do the same for him. Will these high-flyers take care of business?

Team Taz responds.

Ricky Starks has a headache as he asks, “Oh my God, Dante! How many brothers do you have, man?” But he’s what Starks realized about Dante: He has a baby brother complex. Dante thinks everyone around is his friend, is his brother. But no one is his friend, and he will find out that he is all alone! Hobbs says Dante better have someone watch his front, back and both sides. Team Taz builds assassins. Will one of those assassins take out Angel Dorado before the Air Wolf returns?

 

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander & Red Velvet.

Schiavone knows Statlander went through hell in the Mixed Tag Match, so he appreciates her willing to be here talking to him. Except she just stares daggers. And then Leyla Hirsch walks in with sarcastic clapping. “Stat, what a match. Congratulations. Before you had the same focus for our match. But you didn’t. Because of you, we lost on Rampage. You have become so selfish. And the worst part is, you’ve cost me thousands of dollars, you’ve cost Red thousands of dollars.” Velvet has Leyla cool down. They’re a team. No, Red, shut up! You’re always on Stat’s side! Velvet says there was miscommunication, it happens.

But then Leyla CLOBBERS Velvet! Statlander asks her what the hell, but then Leyla CLOBBERS Statlander! And puts her in the LEGIT ARMBAR! Referees rush in to stop Leyla but she still kicks at Statlander as she lets off. The friendship is no more, but has the fight only just begun?

 

Serena Deeb VS Skye Blue!

The Professor of Professional Wrestling, the Woman of 1000 Holds, didn’t use much more than Hikaru Shida’s own kendo stick and some cheap shots to win last week. But will a friend of Shida’s avenge her? Or will Deeb leave Skye black ‘n’ blue tonight?

The bell rings, Skye and Deeb circle. They tie up, Deeb headlocks, spins through to a hammerlock then a snapmare. Deeb slaps Skye around but Skye gets up in a huff. They circle, Deeb gets around Skye to headlock, but Skye blocks the takedown to power out. Deeb runs Skye over, pushes her around, then runs. Skye drops, but Deeb sees the back drop coming to shove Skye out. Skye ducks the forearm to ROCK Deeb back! Skye throws a shoulder in, only for Deeb to counter with a facelock! Deeb grinds Skyle with the grovit, but the ref counts. Deeb lets off at 4, turns Skye, and HOTSHOT NECKBREAKERS! Skye flops down, Deeb scowls and runs in at the corner, to LARIAT!

Deeb trips Skye, gets her under the bottom rope, for the GUILLOTINE CATAPULT! Deeb kicks Skye around, fans fire up for the aggression, and Deeb drags Skye up. Deeb EuroUppers, pulls hair to EuroUpper the back! Then a facelock to TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Deeb grins as she enjoys torturing Skye, and Deeb slaps Skye around. Deeb drags Skye up, “You think you’re on my level!?” Deeb hooks Skye up, DETOX! But Deeb doesn’t cover, she hooks up the arm to an omoplata and SMASHES the knee over and over! SERENITY LOCK! Skye taps, Deeb wins!

Winner: Serena Deeb, by pinfall

Deeb lets off when she’s satisfied, and Skye surely learned a lesson tonight. Who else will learn the hard way not to stand in Deeb’s way?

 

AEW hears from Dan Lambert and The Men of the Year.

Lambert says Moxley returns, and the locker room scatters like roaches when the lights come on. But someone who didn’t scatter was All Ego, Ethan Page. “Jon Moxley, please do not let the fancies fool you, or the $500 sunglasses. Because Ethan Page is up for the task. You guys can stop looking around for opponents for Jon Moxley.” While Moxley was gone, Ethan’s been racking up victories, climbing the rankings, gotten wins over Jericho and the Inner Circle, and has pinned Darby Allin! Do not take Ethan lightly. If Tony Khan wants a marquee match, look no further than the franchise player! But will All Ego be deflated by a Paradigm Shift soon enough?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Hook.

“Something of a phenomenon. The cold-hearted, handsome devil.” A killer in the ring, undefeated through his first month of action. But he’s back on Rampage, taking on Serpentico! Will Hook tear SNAKEMAN apart without breaking a sweat?

 

Sammy Guevara has a picture in picture promo.

The interim TNT Champion is home, looking out at the beach, as he has the cards ready. “Pretty, isn’t it? This beach is an escape. This beach is relaxing. This beach is peaceful. Only thing is, this is my beach. As for yours, Cody… 2 belts, 2 ladders, 2 champions. And only ONE winner. At Beach Break, you will find NO peace. You won’t be able to relax. And you won’t escape. You took what was mine, and I want it back. Next Wednesday, at Beach Break, there will be no Spanish God, no vlog star. The Sammy you knew is gone. Next Wednesday, I walk out of Beach Break… the UNDISPUTED TNT Champ. Hit Me Up.” Sammy picks up his belt, but will it become THE belt after next week?

 

Backstage interview with Matt Hardy and Andrade El Idolo.

The Hardy Family Office is also here as Schiavone says these two seem to have a business deal. They do! Hardy has reached an amazing agreement with Andrade. Hardy has sold 51% of the HFO stock, but it’ll be on the up and up. Hardy has the majority of seats in there, as the original members were him and Private Party. Then Andrade and Jose make up the other two seats. Then on top of that, Hardy is CEO, running day to day, while Andrade will be the president! Andrade loves being El Presidente of HFO. And from now on, they are AHFO, Andrade Hardy Family Office, and they will continue to recruit the best talent in AEW.

Who was the guy Andrade’s been after? This little kid, that works for Sting. Darby Allin? Oh, Darby is a very talented guy. If he survives tonight’s main event with The Acclaimed, he better smarten up and join AHFO. That said, the agreement and merger is official. Then let’s celebrate! Salud!

 

Sting & Darby Allin VS The Acclaimed!

Anthony Bowens & Max Cater continue to parody the Icon and the Relentless One by doing their own black ‘n’ white vignette. Bowens is on a scooter rather than skateboard while “Stang” drives the car. Bowens struggles with the scooter, and gets run over by Stang! And then Caster CLOBBERS Stang with a baseball bat and shouts, “It’s showtime! WOO~!” And then The Acclaimed make their entrance to the ring. “The Acclaimed, beaten that ass if you were hatin’. Fightin’ with us is gory self-mutilation.

“Two grown men and they goin’ through a goth phase. We’re black ‘n’ white and we don’t even need face paint. We’ll put it on ’em like honor system. They even got teeth more crooked than politicians. And Sting’s gonna learn a lesson. We have ’em lookin’ worse than Starrcade ’97!” Bowens tops it off with, “WASHINGTON DC~~! The Acclaimed have arrived!” And they break the skateboard with Darby’s name on it! But then Darby and Sting make their entrances, only for The Acclaimed to jump them at the ropes! Bowens shoves Darby down to the ground, stomps away on him, and Cater clubs Sting. Bowens gets a chair to JAM Darby, then Caster puts Darby in the ring.

Caster has Darby on the apron, puts the chair around his head, and Bowens gets Darby up. “Welcome to the Black Parade, BITCH!” Bowens whips Darby into a post! The ref calls for help from the medics but Bowens mocks Darby. Sting rushes over to run The Acclaimed off for the moment and asks how Darby is doing. The medics say Darby is in no shape, this is now a handicap match! The bell rings, Bowens rushes in but Sting DECKS him! Sting fires off hands on The Acclaimed over and over and fans fire up! Sting kicks Caster out, throws hands on Bowens, then whips Bowens corner to corner. Sting sweeps the legs, DECKS Caster, then throws Bowens out.

Sting goes out, brings Bowens up, and whips him hard into steel steps! Sting kicks Caster, and whips him into the steps! Fans fire up for Sting, he RAMS Caster back into the steps! Sting sees Bowens in the corner, traps him and runs to STINGER SPLASH Caster! Then a STINGER- NO! Bowens moves and pulls the buckle pad away! Sting hits steel! Caster dropkicks Sting down, Bowens covers, TWO!! Sting survives but AEW goes picture in picture.

Bowens drags Sting up, pushes him into the buckle and stomps away. Tag to Caster, The Acclaimed double suplex Sting up and over. Cover, TWO! Caster is annoyed, but he covers again. TWO, and Caster argues the count. Caster stomps Sting, drags him up, brings him around but Sting throws body shots. Caster knees low, tags Bowens, and they put Sting in a neutral corner. Bowens runs in to forearm, Caster runs in to back elbow, and Bowens goes side to side for another forearm. Bowens feeds Sting to Caster’s POWERSLAM! Bowens covers, TWO! Sting is still in this and The Acclaimed grows frustrated.

Bowens says everyone loves the Acclaimed, but DC seems torn. Bowens kicks Sting to ropes, drags him up, chokes him against the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. Caster gets a cheap shot in! Bowens drags Sting up, stomps him in the corner, CLUBS him down, then talks more trash. Bowens drags Sting over, tags in Caster, and the Acclaimed mug Sting. Caster CLUBS Sting, tags Bowens back in, and they mug Sting more. Bowens brings Sting around, and hits a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! AEW returns to single picture and DC rallies for Sting. Bowens drags Sting up, tags Caster back in, and they double whip, but Sting breaks the line to DOUBLE LARIAT!

Fans fire up with Sting as he gets Caster’s legs! SCORPION DEATHLOCK!! But Bowens gets in, ROLLING ELBOW! Sting doesn’t budge!! Sting eggs Bowens on, even! Bowens SUPERKICKS and now Sting falls! Bowens pushes Sting out, grabs the Five Tool Boombox, and he takes aim. Caster keeps the ref distracted, Bowens CLOBBERS Sting with the boombox! Bowens hides the boombox, drags Sting up and around as fans cheer and jeer. Bowens brings Sting around as Caster sets up the steep steps. The ring count climbs, Caster goes up and Bowens says Sting’s going for a ride! But then Darby DIVES off the stage!! He’s somehow alright!!

Bowens runs at Darby but is sent into the POST! Darby gets Sting in the ring, fans are going nuts, and Darby tags in! No more handicap match, Darby is up top for a SUPER COFFIN DROP! Darby gets Caster in the ring, but he’s a little slow. He still hops on, CODE RED! Cover, TWO! Caster survives but Darby is seething. Darby runs in, COFFIN SPLASH! And then another! Darby reels Caster in for a GUILLOTINE! Darby has the body scissors, but Caster endures and fights up, to tag Bowens in! Caster RAMS Darby into the bare buckle, TOSSES Darby, and Bowens fires off the Five Tool Strike Fest!

Bowens gets Darby in for the CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED! Caster hits the MIC DROP ELBOW! Cover, Sting breaks it! Sting whips Caster, clotheslines him out, then dumps Bowens out to the ramp! Fans fire up as Sting goes out and follows Caster off to the side of the stage. Sting takes aim while Caster gets up, and Sting FLIES! He and Caster crash through the timekeeper’s table!! Fans go nuts for that one! And they also chant, “You Still Got It!” Meanwhile, Bowens runs in at Darby but is sent into the bare buckle! Darby gets around for the THROWBACK STUNNER! Bowens drops into the drop zone, Darby goes up top! COFFIN DROP!! Cover, Sting & Darby win!!

Winners: Sting & Darby Allin, by pinfall

The undefeated and relentless icons just took down the #1 ranked tag team! Are they going to find themselves at the top of the heap to go after the AEW World Tag Team Championships?


My Thoughts:

What a wild episode right here! Great promo from Moxley to open the show, and I’m surprised The Men of the Year are shifting focus from the TNT title right now. It might just be a one-off of Mox VS Ethan for Rampage, but it’ll be a really good return match for Moxley. Lambert being Archer’s corner man tonight was definitely interesting, but Archer VS Kaz was great stuff. Archer naturally wins and he has a great brawl with Hangman. Their title match is probably going to be for Revolution, that’s in early March, giving five more weeks to build. And we’re getting a lot of great stuff for Rampage and Beach Break this week, too.

Jade VS Anna for the TBS Championship on Rampage is going to be great, but pretty sure Jade wins. I liked the quick video we got for Hook, he’s definitely beating Serpentico. Trent and Rocky had a real good promo with Cutler, and I love that we’re getting Roppongi Vice VS Young Bucks in AEW for Rampage, that could be an instant classic. Inner Circle having tension over Eddie Kingston being a friend of Santana & Ortiz is a great next step for this story, and that Six Man on Rampage is going to be really good. We got a great Mixed Tag, so many great teases of co-ed action (even though we saw that on the Cruise of Jericho a couple years ago), and Britt taking a table spot was great. Cole VS Cassidy, Lights Out/Unsanctioned for Beach Break is going to be awesome!

Dante and his allies have a good promo, as does Team Taz. Whatever kind of tag match comes of this, it’s going to be really good, and I’m sure Lethal will get in on things soon, too. Maybe Team Taz takes out Sydal or Moriarty and Lethal subs in with him. MJF’s promo about Wardlow was good, but Punk squashing Spears was bittersweet for me. I wanted more out of Punk VS Spears, but this pissing MJF off was great stuff. I don’t know how, but MJF VS Punk is probably being saved for Revolution to give it a huge stage. We got a great tag match and win for House of Black/Kings of the Black Throne. They didn’t bring the PWG belts but I would love if at some point, we see things like the PWG champions, the AEW champions, etc. all interacting for a huge tag match.

Gunn Club going after Christian is an interesting way to set things up with Jurassic Express, that title match could happen for the post Beach Break Rampage and would be a great showing for Austin & Colten while Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus get another successful defense. Deeb dominates Skye, and I’m thinking she’ll have a follow-up match with Conti for some really great technical stuff. Deeb will build a lot of momentum before Shida returns for yet another rematch, and then who knows who wins that. Leyla fully turning after Statlander’s loss was pretty good, she and Velvet are going to have a good match for Beach Break, and then we’ll get a great one from Leyla VS Statlander.

Sting & Darby VS Acclaimed was a great main event, and the booking of having Darby out for the majority was a pretty good way to build both men’s toughness. A lot of the time, you get the out-of-commission wrestler running down the ramp to make a hot tag, but Darby’s tope off the stage was so much better. Darby & Sting stay undefeated, they’re going to contenders soon enough. And last but not least, the promos around the TNT title match. Sammy’s cue card response was good and all, but Cody’s promo is going to be the talk of the week for sure. He was walking that line of kayfabe and shoot again, sounding like a bragging Heel but claiming to be Face, only as Cody can.

And I do like that it’ll be a ladder match for the TNT Championship. It certainly gives the illusion that it can go either way, but I have a feeling Cody finds a way to win that borders on being Heel, but he’ll still act like he’s the Face. Then he’ll be ready to face the Face of the Revolution Ladder Match winner, that’ll be something that carries AEW into the Summer, and could even push Cody further into his Heel turn.

My Score: 8.8/10

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!

Hobbs moves the other set of steps around, brings Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into railing! Hobbs asks Kevin Kelley what he’s going on about but Kevin isn’t sure Hobbs means. 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! Hobbs flounders against railing but the fans fire up as Sammy stalks him. Sammy tosses Hobbs the chair to KICK it into him! Then Sammy cravats, uses the steps, but Hobbs turns the cutter into a TOSS over the railing! Sammy’s leg clips the top, but Hobbs hauls him back up and over! 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!

Sammy takes a monitor from the timekeeper!

Sammy brings the equipment into the ring, MONITOR SHOT!! But that’s not enough so Sammy looks around outside. He finds another table! The fans are thunderous as table number three is put in the ring. Sammy hurries after Hobbs but Hobbs LARIATS Sammy inside-out! Hobbs storms around, grabs the table for his own and sets that up near a corner. Hobbs goes back for Sammy as the fans rally up, and Hobbs hauls Sammy up. Sammy JAWBREAKERS back! Hobbs wobbles, but Sammy SUPERKICKS!

Sammy survives and now Hobbs is furious! Hobbs runs to BOOT Sammy down! Hobbs goes out while Sammy flops off the apron. Hobbs looks around under the ring, and he brings out a fourth table! The fans fire up as Hobbs brings this one to the ramp side. Hobbs sets that up, stomps Sammy to keep him down, then he goes to fetch a fifth table! 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 is stuck on the top rope and Hobbs snarls as he storms up after him! Hobbs brings Sammy up for the scoop! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM THROUGH THE TABLE!! Cover, Hobbs wins!!

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?

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.

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 fans fire up for Keith as he aims at Malakai. Keith drags Malakai up, underhooks, but Malakai fights and the leg gives up! Malakai shoves Keith to a corner, but Keith pops Malakai up. The knee still holds Keith back so Malakai CLUBS Keith on the back.

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?

 

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?

Deeb CHOPS but Frost pushes Frost to CHOP again! Frost stomps a mudhole into Deeb, then brings her around for a FISHERMAN SUPLEX! Deeb flounders to ropes but Frost hobbles over.

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? 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!

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!

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
