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

Bryan Danielson is still down on the ramp after Konosuke Takeshita’s Brainbuster and the medics check him. The battle with Will Ospreay at Dynasty is still in the books, but what condition will Bryan be in?

 

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

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

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

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

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who’s really the biggest badass in AEW!

The bell rings, the two circle, and they feel things out. Shane swings, Hook dodges to fire off fast hands and forearms! The fans fire up behind Hook but Shane shoves him away. Hook ducks the haymaker, waistlocks, but Shane fights with elbows. Shane swings again, but Hook gets under! Shane CLUBS the Camino down, then whips. Hook holds ropes, then DUMPS Shane out! Shane tumbles to the floor, Hook pursues, and Hook SMACKS Shane off railing! Hook SMACKS Shane off steel steps, then has Shane sit in a corner. Hook rains down fists, then lets off to revel in the cheers. Hook throws knees again and again, then CLUBS Shane again.

Shane staggers along railing, but Hook puts him in the ring. The fans cheer again, Hook storms in, but Shane JABS! JABS! And BODY SHOTS! Hook falls, sputters, and the ref has Shane stay back to check. That could’ve been a liver shot but Shane hauls Hook up. Shane CHOPS Hook in the career, and Hook sputters as he goes along ropes. Shane taunts Hook, puts him in a corner, and CHOPS again! Hook staggers to another corner, Shane taunts him, “I thought you were the man!” Shane BODY BLOWS again and Hook coughs. Hook fires hands in return, backs Shane down, then reels Shane in! Shane’s too big for the suplex, though!

Shane shoves Hook, and BODY BLOWS! Hook falls to the mat, but Shane drags him back up. Shane HEADBUTTS Hook, Hook is dazed, and Shane says he thought Hook was a killer. Shane says to bow down to the killer that’s badder! Shane CHOPS Hook, suplexes him, and hangs him out to dry! Hook sputters and falls, Shane soaks up heat, and Battle of the Belts goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Hook up, TOSSES him out, then goes out to bring Hook up. Shane whips Hook hard into steel steps! Hook writhes, Shane storms around, then Shane drags Hook up. Shane makes Hook take a seat in a corner, then runs up to KNEE Hook against railing! Hook falls over, but he’s somehow still conscious! Shane drags Hook up and hangs him out to dry on the railing! Hook sputters and falls to the floor, and Shane talks more trash. Shane drags Hook up, puts him in the ring, and BOTB returns to single picture. Shane has Hook on the apron, for the APRON LEG DROP! Hook sputters more while Shane seethes.

Shane storms in, talks trash on the fans, then soaks up the heat. Shane drags Hook up, puts him in the corner, and BODY SHOTS! BODY SHOT! HAYMAKER! Hook slumps down in the corner but the fans rally up. Shane waits on Hook, Hook says he’s still in this! Shane stands Hook up to BODY SHOT, BODY SHOT and BODY SHOT! Then Shane ROCKS Hook again, again, and AGAIN! Hook flops back down while Shane storms around. The ref checks with Hook, Shane says to call it already! Hook says no, he’s still in this! Shane drags Hook up, tells Hook to quit or he gets send home in a body bag!

The fans boo as Shane whips corner to corner, hard! Hook sputters, Shane runs in, but Hook dodges! Shane hits buckles, Hook hurries to waistlock! Shane fights the grip, then ROCKS Hook! Hook ROCKS Shane back! And ROCKS him again and again! The fans fire up as Hook fires more shots! Hook runs to LARAIT! Shane stays up, Hook LARIATS again! Hook runs, ducks the haymaker, and GERMAN SUPLEXES!! Shane staggers up in a daze, and Hook clinches to EXPLODER!! Hook covers, TWO!! Shane is still tougher than that and Hook is beside himself!

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

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

 

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

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

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

Roddy ROCKS Rocky then CHOPS him! Roddy whips, Rocky slides under then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA! The fans fire up as Rocky then wrenches Roddy and goes up a corner. Rocky FLYING KNEE DROPS right on the arm! The fans cheer the Latino Heat and Rocky goes back to the corner. Rocky CHOPS Roddy, Roddy CHOPS back! Rocky CHOPS, Roddy kicks low! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, ROCKS him, then reels Rocky in for a BACKBREAKER! Rocky writhes but Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy and The Kingdom talk trash, Roddy swings but Rocky dodges! Rocky CHOPS and then stomps away on Roddy!

Rocky digs his boot in, lets off as the ref counts, then stands Roddy up. Rocky snapmares and runs to basement dropkick! Roddy flounders, Rocky covers, ONE!! Rocky keeps one eye on The Kingdom, then he brings Roddy around. UPPERCUT and Roddy staggers. Roddy BOOTS, whips, but Rocky goes Spiderman! Rocky then dodges Roddy and sends him tumbling out! Rocky goes out to PENALTY KICK from the apron! Rocky leaps to DIVING STOMP! Roddy writhes, Rocky gives more Latino Heat, and BOTB goes picture in picture.

Rocky tells The Kingdom to back off, and so does the ref. Taven mocks Rocky’s Latino Heat, but Rocky puts Roddy in the ring. Rocky storms up on Roddy to KICK his leg! Roddy hobbles to a corner, Rocky CHOPS him and then follows him. Rocky ROCKS Roddy, ROCKS him again, but Roddy bails out. Rocky goes after Roddy on the apron, but Roddy lifts! Rocky fights that to then elbow Roddy! But Rocky has to watch out for The Kingdom lurking! Roddy BOOTS Rocky, then POSTS him! Rocky falls to the floor, Roddy hops down and he drags Rocky up. Roddy gives Rocky a RAILING BACKBREAKER! Rocky writhes, The Kingdom mocks him more, and Roddy drags Rocky up.

Roddy puts Rocky in the ring, stomps Rocky around, then drags him up to CHOP! Rocky staggers to a corner, Roddy storms up on him, and then DECKS him! Roddy soaks up the heat, then he digs his boots into Rocky! The ref counts, Roddy lets off at 4, but just switches feet! The ref counts more, Roddy steps away, and Rocky sputters along the ropes. Roddy gets Rocky up but Rocky ROCKS him first! And again! Roddy hits back, Rocky CHOPS, and CHOPS! Rocky runs, but Roddy blocks the Rana to make it a POWER BREAKER! Rocky writhes, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy clamps onto Rocky with a motorcycle stretch!

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

Rocky CHOPS, whips, but Roddy reverses. Rocky reverses back to kick, but Roddy ducks the enzigiri! Rocky REWIND HEEL KICKS! Roddy flops out of the ring and the fans fire up! Rocky builds speed, fakes Roddy out and DIVES onto Taven! Then Rocky DIVES onto Roddy! Rocky puts Roddy in, runs up, SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Rocky keeps his cool. Rocky fires forearms in the corner, then winds up! The fans fire up as Rocky runs in, clothesline! Another clothesline! But Roddy follows to RAM Rocky, and CHOP him! And CHOP! And CHOP!

Roddy is frustrated but he hauls Rocky up. Fireman’s carry, but Rocky fights free! Roddy shoves, lifts again, but Rocky pops up to RANA! The fans fire up as Rocky ducks ‘n’ dodges, tilt-o-whirls and DDTS! Cover, TWO! Roddy survives but Rocky stays focused. The fans rally for Rocky as he stalks Roddy. Roddy RAMS Rocky, gets him up top, and then climbs up after him. Rocky fights with fists and a HEADBUTT! Rocky then cravats, SUPER SLICED BREAD!! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives again and Rocky is beside himself! The Kingdom is also worried, they rally up for Roddy. The fans rally for Rocky as he goes out to the apron.

Rocky climbs but The Kingdom is lurking again. The ref tells them to back off, but Roddy ROCKS Rocky first! Roddy has Rocky up top but Rocky DECKS Roddy! Rocky adjusts, Roddy stands, METE- STRONG KNEE!! Cover, Roddy wins!

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.6/10

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

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

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

OFFICIAL RESULTS

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

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

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

 

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

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

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

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

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

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

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

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

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

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

Lee digs his boots in at the ropes, scrapes Shibata out of the ring, then soaks up the heat.

Lee goes out after Shibata, RAMS him into railing, then taunts everyone while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Shibata gets back in the ring after having wrecked Lee on the outside. But then Lee wrenches Shibata. Shibata ROCKS Lee, Lee wrenches, repeat! Lee CHOPS Shibata, but Shibata doesn’t budge! Lee CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Lee CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, but Shibata is leaning into the shots! Shibata backs Lee down even though Lee CHOPS again and again! Shibata eggs Lee on, Ogogo coaches Lee, and the CHOPS keep going. Shibata ROCKS Lee with a forearm!

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

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

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

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

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

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

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag!

Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it!

Angelico DECKS Garcia! Angelico hauls Garcia up to suplex, but Garcia slips free and kicks! Then TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! The fans fire up while both men are down! Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

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

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

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

 

Pac speaks.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

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

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

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

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

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

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine. Bryan might as well just expect not to walk out on his own. One last message has been sent, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will the Protostar & Powerhouse pulverize the BCC?

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
