Tony Schiavone and Tony Khan are in the ring!

Daily’s Place is fired up as AEW returns home on the Road to Revolution! Schiavone knows he doesn’t need to introduce the owner and CEO, but Khan has a major announcement! Tony thanks Tony for the mic, and Khan says he normally keeps people on time so he’ll make sure to get to wrestling asap. He thanks the fans for being here, as well as those watching at home. The fans have been the ones keeping this company going through these hard times. Tonight is a big night, and this is perhaps the biggest week in this company’s history. We’re on the road to Revolution this Sunday on PPV, and to add to that, here is his huge announcement!

Khan appreciates people being here for this. When they started AEW three years ago, it was out in the parking lot! A lot of fans were here at the very beginning. It was 17 years before that, another wrestling company started. That company… was ROH! Ring of Honor! And Khan has been a fan of ROH for a long time, so he is very excited, because today, Tony Khan signed a deal, and is the NEW OWNER OF ROH!! That is HUGE! There is no Shane McMahon, it’s all Tony Khan! Almost 20 years ago, ROH launched into an ear of honor with one of the biggest events ever. That main event, maybe some were here. But one man who was there was CHRISTOPHER DANIELS!

Christopher Daniels is an AEW Original, an ROH Original, and the man he wrestled, neither won that night and it’s been eating both men up for 20 years. The man he wrestled is here tonight, and the man who will face Jon Moxley at Revolution! That man is here for the first time in Daily’s Place. That man is none other than BRYAN DANIELSON! The American Dragon is already dressed to compete, because he is facing… THE FALLEN ANGEL!! That match from ROH’s first event opens this already historic Dynamite! But will there finally be a winner?

Bryan Danielson VS Christopher Daniels!

The bell rings and fans are fired up as the two stare down. Fans chant for “R O H! R O H!” as the two shake hands! AEW sees the Code of Honor upheld, and the two tie up. Bryan gets around to full nelson, Daniels slips through but Bryan turns it back around to hammerlock. Bryan wrangles Daniels down but Daniels fights back up. Daniels headlocks, spins and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER and wristlock. Bryan rolls, bridges, gets up and throws Daniels over! Fans fire up as Bryan strikes a pose, then does jumping jacks just to show off. Daniels nods and circles with Bryan again as fans rally up.

Fans chant and duel, “FALLEN ANGEL!” “LET’S GO, BRYAN!” as the two tie up again. Daniels headlocks, Bryan powers out but Daniels runs him over. Things speed up, Daniels handsprings and arm-drags, then he strikes a pose! And does jumping jacks! Daniels says that’s one and one, and Bryan nods back. They shake hands again and fans cheer the sportsmanship. They circle, tie up, Bryan drop toeholds and then rear mounts to go after Daniels’ face! The ref reprimands, Bryan wrenches an arm and tries a double wristlock. Daniels powers out, things speed up, and Bryan runs Daniels over!

Bryan gets the arm and wrenches, to return that ELBOW BREAKER! Bryan hammerlocks, wrangles Daniels down and gets the other arm. Bryan stands on the arm and makes it a recliner! Cover, TWO! Bryan keeps on Daniels with a headlock but Daniels powers out. Things speed up again and Daniels CALF KICKS! Bryan bails out but Daniels WRECKS him with a dropkick! And then ARABIAN PRESS! Direct hit and Daniels plays like he’s shocked. The fans fire up, Daniels ROCKS Bryan again, and then he puts Bryan back in. Daniels goes up, Bryan stands and he KICKS the crossbody outta the air!

Daniels sits up, Bryan KICKS Daniels again! And again! Bryan says, “Fallen Angel, huh?” Bryan brings Daniels up to EuroUpper hard! Daniels gets to a corner, Bryan EuroUppers again! Bryan whips, and he kitchen sink knees Daniels down! Bryan soaks up the cheers and jeers, then Bryan JAMS a knee into Daniels. Bryan stomps Daniels, drags him around by a leg and uses a toehold to turn him over. Bryan hooks up the legs and KNEES Daniels in the back. Bryan fish hooks Daniels’ face, the ref counts and Bryan lets off right at 4. Bryan then pulls Daniels into a BOW ‘N’ ARROW! Daniels endures, he touches the rope and Bryan lets him go.

Bryan drags Daniels up to CHOP him! Daniels CHOPS back! Bryan CHOPS again! Daniels CHOPS again! Bryan EuroUppers, then again! Bryan whips, Daniels reverses, Bryan goes up and over and keeps going to duck and dodges, into a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Fans fire up while both men are down. Bryan crawls to a corner while Daniels drags himself up the ropes. Daniels runs and rallies on Bryan with clotheslines! Bryan reverses the whip, Daniels KICKS him back and hits an STO! Fans fire up with Daniels, he runs corner to corner but Bryan BOOTS him! Bryan goes up, Daniels SHOTEIS!

Daniels brings Bryan out, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Daniels calls his shot, reels Bryan in and underhooks the arms, but Bryan RAMS him into buckles! Then turns him around, GERMAN SUPLEX! Daniels flounders all the way to the far corner. Daniels drags himself up, Bryan runs in to DROPKICK! Bryan brings Daniels back up, CHOPS him, then KICKS him! And CHOPS, and KICKS, repeat! Bryan hoists Daniels up top as the count climbs, then Bryan climbs up to join Daniels. Fans fire up as Daniels fights off the superplex! Daniels elbows Bryan over and over, then HEADBUTTS him down!

Bryan staggers up, Daniels CROSBODIES this time! But Bryan rolls it through, TWO! To an ARMBAR! But Daniels makes it a cover, TWO! Daniels drop toeholds and gets an arm, but Bryan trips Daniels to La Magistrol, only for Daniels to block partway! TWO, into a crucifix, TWO! Daniels hits Bryan with a big haymaker, but Bryan just brushes it off! Bryan ROCKS Daniels, Daniels ROCKS him back! They go back and forth, fans fire up as Bryan gets the edge! Bryan spins, into a JAB from Daniels! Daniels JABS, JABS, JABS, then swings, but Bryan bobs ‘n’ weaves to DECK Daniels with a slap! Then ROLLING ELBOW! Cover, TWO!!

Bryan might’ve been a bit cocky on the cover and Daniels survives because of it! But Bryan says he’ll end this, and fans rally up as Bryan climbs a corner. Daniels gets up to trip Bryan up! And SHOTEI! Daniels gets Bryan’s arms again but Bryan hooks Daniels’ face! Daniels SHOTEIS again! Daniels climbs up, wants to go to the very top, SUPER- NO! Bryan shoves the Steiner away to then leap, into an URENAGE! Daniels hurries, BEST MOONSAULT EVER into a TRIANGLE!! Bryan has Daniels caught and fans go nuts! Bryan rains down elbows as Daniels reaches for ropes! Daniels fades, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

But Bryan holds on, to literally flex on Daniels! The American Dragon finally gets the win on the Fallen Angel, but now he gets the mic. “Ladies and gentlemen, 20 years since the first Ring of Honor show. Christopher Daniels and I were in the main event. And at that time, we started matches with a handshake, and we ended matches with a handshake.” Bryan reaches down to Daniels, takes his hand, and says, “Let’s hear it for Christopher Daniels. But here’s the thing: I’m not in Ring of Honor! I’m in AEW! And it’s time to kick somebody’s head in!” Bryan gets both hands to give Daniels DANIELSON STOMPS!!

Bryan lets off and soaks up the cheers and jeers before calling out Jon Moxley! “On Sunday, at Revolution, the head that’s gonna be stomped in is yours!” But wait! Here comes the Maniac himself! Moxley heads through the bleachers and down to the ring. Moxley gets himself a mic before he gets in the ring with Bryan. “I can see that the American Dragon, Bryan Danielson, is better than ever. And I can see that Bryan Danielson is more violent than ever. But you got it wrong, my friend. There’s two paths I can walk right now, I’m at what they call a crossroads. And which path I take will determine my future.”

Bryan thinks Moxley walks the path that gets his head kicked in on Sunday and he fades into oblivion, never to be heard from again. But that ain’t gonna happen. Not by a long shot. Moxley chooses to walk another path! “Through sheer force of will, refusal to die, I will walk this path through fire, through bullets, and through you! Because at the end of this path is something that looked impossible not too long ago. At the end of this path, I beat the American Dragon, Bryan Danielson! The story of Jon Moxley is just startin’! It’s just beginning. And I write the first chapter on Sunday, a chapter that’s gonna be written in blood!”

But since Bryan wants to talk about what he’ll do to Moxley, kick his head in, there’s like a million people watching at home and thousands live in the crowd. If Bryan wants to prove Moxley wrong, then take a shot! Moxley drops the mic and throws off the jacket as fans fire up! Bryan drops his mic, he steps to Moxley, but then bails right out. Fans boo but this battle will happen at Revolution! Will Bryan beat the hell out of Moxley? Will Moxley beat the hell out of Bryan? And will they still somehow form that most violent faction in the world?


Darby Allin & Sting speak.

The Icon says that this Friday on Rampage, there will be heavy duty fines and indefinite suspensions for anyone who tries to get involved in the coming Triple Threat. No big deal to Sting. Is it any bother to Darby? Not at all. He didn’t need anyone’s help to win the TNT Championship, and he won’t need help this time. “Sammy, no matter what happens on Friday, we’re teaming up on Sunday at Revolution. You, me and Sting to take on Hardy, Andrade and Isiah. And we’ll do what we always do, baby: steal the show. Because ain’t nobody getting more psychotic than us.” But as for Rampage, the TNT title, “It’s showtime.” Who will hold the gold going into Revolution?

And reDRagon get in to celebrate with them! The Elite conspiracy has worked out in their favor! But here comes Jurassic Express! Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus see the two teams they’re facing this Sunday, will they still be golden after Revolution?


Chris Jericho speaks.

“The entire wrestling world is buzzing over the announcement of Eddie Kingston VS Chris Jericho this Sunday at Revolution after our promo segment- Well, Eddie, you probably don’t know what a promo is. After our conversation on Dynamite last week. Congratulations, kid, you’re finally becoming the big star I always knew you would be.” But Jericho still can’t related to a guy like Kingston, because Jericho’s been such a big star for so long and Kingston… well, hasn’t. But this Sunday, it’s finally Kingston’s chance to win the big one. Because like Jericho said last week, Jericho IS the big one in AEW.

So Kingston, look deep down inside. Do you really think you have what it takes to beat the Influencer? Do you really think you have the confidence to get over your fear of success? Jericho doesn’t think so. But if Kingston does, IF, then Jericho will shake his hand and tell him he has his undying respect. But if not, which he won’t, Jericho will laugh at Kingston’s pathetic ass and to GFY. Santana and Ortiz walk in, Jericho raises a fist, and he gets fist bumps in return. Are they good? Santana & Ortiz don’t answer that, but Jericho says he always has their backs. Will the Inner Circle still be standing, no matter what happens between Le Champion and the Mad King?


CM Punk heads to the ring!

The Best of the World looks rather conflicted as he walks out into Daily’s Place and gets the mic. Fans chant for Punk, and Punk says he used to wake up every morning, splash his face with some water and look himself in the eye in the mirror. He’d ask himself, “Am I the bad guy?” Punk never had an answer. He doesn’t believe anyone thinks of themselves as the “bad guy” in their own story. Up until a week ago, Punk was sure MJF was the bad guy. And he’ll say right now, Punk thinks what Max did last week, to come out and bare his soul like that, on national television, that takes courage. Courage Punk didn’t think MJF had.

MJF spoke about a lot of deep, powerful things. But Punk also can’t shake the feeling that he’s just being gaslighted. Punk makes it clear to everyone watching: Punk doesn’t think MJF is lying. Those things surely happened to MJF. Where the questions lie is in the sincerity. Punk might be getting soft, because he isn’t even sure if it matters. There’s a famous picture of Punk online, very young, with Stone Cold Steve Austin. And after much lesser men framed Austin as a man who took his ball and went home, Punk didn’t get mad at the world. Punk didn’t lash out and do horrible things.

And since being here in AEW, Punk has seen Max knockout the legendary Dean Malenko, who is suffering from Parkinson’s. Punk heard MJF bury the late, great Brian Pillman Senior, in his hometown. Punk had to watch MJF say awful things about Darby Allin’s late uncle. And here’s the thing, ladies and gentlemen, this is the one fact Punk knows: “Hurt people hurt people.” When Punk came to AEW, MJF stood in front of him, introduced himself and Punk didn’t shake his hand. Is Punk to blame for MJF’s horrible behavior? Is Punk somehow Dr. Frankenstein and MJF is the monster he created?

Punk thinks everyone has to take responsibility for their actions. And Punk is pretty sure there is nothing he can say that is more impactful than something he can do. In order to do that, he needs MJF to come out here. Punk doesn’t want anyone but Max from last week to come out here. They can talk, have a conversation in front of the world. Punk waits and fans chant, and without music, MJF makes his way out. MJF joins Punk in the ring, and though fans boo, he keeps his cool. Punk walks up to MJF to say, “Here’s the thing, Max. I’ve done horrible things in my life. I used to be you, so full of hate.”

Punk poured alcohol down an alcoholic’s throat. He covered a legendary wrestler in the ashes of his dead, beloved manager. He mocked a wrestler’s addiction until he lost his JOB because of it. And Punk is here to say that all that hate is not going to keep you warm, it’ll burn you up. Punk would like to think that his respect isn’t just given, it is earned. And right now, this is bigger than Punk, bigger than MJF, bigger than wrestling. This is about an 11 year old kid watching at home right now, and right now he looks up to MJF the same way MJF looked up to Punk. That is what this is about.

Punk might be wrong, but he woke up this morning, splashed water in his face, and he looked at himself in the mirror and asked, “Are you the good guy?” Punk finally had an answer. That answer is… He is sure trying. Punk offers a handshake and fans aren’t sure what to make of this. MJF himself isn’t sure what to make of it. MJF pushes past the handshake to HUG Punk. MJF is hugging his childhood hero, and now Punk is the one unsure what to make of this. Punk hugs him back! Fans cheer this cathartic moment for Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and then MJF KICKS PUNK IN THE BALLS!

MJF throws off his jacket, drags Punk up and throws him through ropes, to then reel him in for the HEATSEEKER!! MJF rips off his fancy button-up shirt to reveal a T-shirt with THAT PICTURE on it! Young Max and Punk at the meet ‘n’ greet! MJF then calls for his henchmen! Wardlow and Shawn Spears walk out, and they have both diamond ring and dog collar! MJF puts the ring on his pinkie, and he demands Punk get up! Punk slowly stirs, manages to get to his feet, DYNAMITE DIAMOND PUNCH!! MJF stands up on the corner and shows off the ring as he soaks up all the heat. FTR also return to watch the ramp as MJF rains down fists!

Punk is busted open, MJF BITES Punk’s forehead! FTR CLOBBER security as they rush out! Spears gets in the ring and mocks Punk. MJF drags Punk up, smears the blood all over his shirt, then throws Punk out of the ring! Punk sputters on the floor, MJF gets him up to punch the bloody wound more! MJF stands Punk up for Spears to put the collar on him! MJF tells the timekeeper to stop ringing the bell, then he gets a mic. “You stupid, stupid old man. I’m a snake. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world that he doesn’t exist. And this Sunday, at Revolution, I’m going to show you and all these mindless sheep that I am the devil himself!”

MJF then has Spears CHOKE Punk by pulling the chain! Punk dangles from the ropes while bleeding, but here comes Sting, Darby and Sammy Guevara! They run The Pinnacle off, but the damage has been done! Punk can finally breathe again, will he make sure MJF never speaks again?


Backstage interview with Keith Lee.

Schiavone says the Limitless One has qualified for the Face of the Revolution, but before that, Friday Night Rampage will see Keith Lee have a little tune-up. But before Keith can comment, Ricky Starks walks in, imitating Keith’s “Greetings and salutations.” Keith has Starks stop right there. Starks has twice interrupted him. If there is a third, there will be none of Starks left to do so again. Well Starks is just here to let Keith know that Rampage is Starks Country. And Hobbs is the President.

With that all said, Starks is giving Keith a fair warning. If Keith shows up on Rampage, he might not make it to Revolution. Starks is just being a good brother, and giving Keith a heads-up. See you when they see you. And Keith promises to be there. Will this little warning do little to scare the Limitless One away?


Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter w/ Rebel VS Thunder Rosa & Mercedes Martinez!

The AEW Women’s World Champion and her sidekick are in action as the Doctor prepares for her title match at Revolution. But will La Mera Mera & Mean Ms. Mercedes be merciless to Britt Baker, DMD?

La Mera Mera just pinned the champ! Will she do that all over again at Revolution? Or will Britt find a way to keep the title?


Backstage interview with Tay Conti & Anna Jay.

Tay accepted Jade Cargill’s open challenge for the TBS Championship at Revolution. Tay is a Black Belt in Judo, and a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu. How does she hope to get that gold belt? Before she can say anything, Mark Sterling & Jade Cargill walk in. Of course they show up. Jade says, “Bitch, shut up before I kick you in the face again. Nobody gives a damn about that karate shit.” Jay keeps Tay from firing off, and Sterling says someone didn’t read the fine print. If Tay so much as harms a green hair on Jade’s head, this title opportunity will be taken away faster than you can say jiujitsu. Tay clams down, and Jade says to be thankful she gave Tay this opportunity.

The Jade Brand leaves, TayJay stays cool. Will the Brazilian Blackbelt Beauty beat some modesty into Jade? Or will she just be the newest loser on #ThatBitchShow?


Sammy Guevara has his cue cards!

AEW goes picture in picture as Sammy shares his thoughts. “Fines! Suspensions! Why is that what it takes just to get a fair match with you? Matt, Isiah, Andrade, can you do nothing on your own? When I won this belt, I didn’t need or want help! The Inner Circle didn’t fight my battles! I DID! Which is why I respect you, Darby Allin! You do it the same way. Every fight with you has been fair. This Sunday, it will be an honor to fight along side you and an icon, STING! Make no mistakes though, this Friday, you are nothing more, than another opponent! Good luck!” El Idolo VS The Relentless VS The Spanish God, but there can only be ONE TNT Champion!


AEW hears from Kris Statlander and Leyla Hirsch.

The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien says, “Leyla, you call yourself a legit athlete. But a legit athlete would know how to take a loss, learn from the experience, and yet, all you’ve done is blame me for winning.” But Leyla says, “Stat, you said that my parents had a reason for giving me up for adoption.” Kris stands by what she said about Leyla being childish, and she meant it with every fiber of her being. Leyla asks the producers why she’s even doing this. Why is she talking to a camera? Kris said what she said. Kris says if Leyla wants to talk struggles, Kris will give her something to struggle with. They’re about to see a whole different side to Kris Statlander no one has ever seen before.

Leyla is done talking! She’ll let her actions speak louder than Kris’ words! What happens when these two finally have it out in the ring 1v1?


Wardlow w/ Shawn Spears VS Cezar Bononi!

We saw the members of The Pinnacle play their part in MJF’s brutalizing of CM Punk, but the Maestro of Mayhem actually just stood by and watched. Is he not in agreement with his teammates anymore? Or will he start doing things the way they want against the Wingmen’s Brazilian Beefcake?

The bell rings and the two tie up. Bononi knees low, CLUBS Wardlow, and then whips him to ropes. Wardlow uses that to reel Bononi in! POWERBOMB! Fans fire up as it begins already! Spears isn’t happy but fans want that “ONE MORE TIME!” Wardlow gets Bononi back up, to POWERBOMB again! And then roll Bononi up and into a THIRD POWERBOMB! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

And he did it his way! Spears gets in with his chair, but Wardlow stops him from getting his shots in! Spears lets the chair go, fans chant for Wardlow and Spears throws off his beanie. Wardlow doesn’t back down from The Chair Man, so Spears steps away. Will the War Dog become the new Face of the Revolution in that stacked field of stars?


AEW hears from The House of Black.

Malakai says, “You have deemed us inherently evil. But wasn’t it the House, PAC, that gave you new sight? Wasn’t it the House, Pentagon, that gave you new means to find new levels of…” “Violence,” Brody King finishes. “The part of the human condition that society chooses to shun. The part that the House has embraced and enforced as you sit back and cast…” “Judgement,” Buddy Matthews finishes. “The one thing everyone passes, and everyone fears to receive. We don’t cast judgement. We seek the truth. And the truth is is that we are the House.” “And the house always wins.” Will this trifecta of terror tear down the norms to enlighten AEW?


Backstage interview with Wardlow and Shawn Spears.

The Chair Man knows the big guy is mad, but Spears still loves him! And big news! Max, c’mere! MJF says he heard Wardlow got a little perturbed earlier, so here’s some good news. If Wardlow wins the ladder match and beats the TNT Champion, he can keep the title. Besides, it’s not like he’s going to win it anyway. MJF starts to walk off but Wardlow says it’s only because he’s too busy making sure MJF’s winning. MJF comes back to SLAP Wardlow! Maybe Wardlow forgot: he isn’t a pro-wrestler, he is MJF’s bodyguard! Wardlow doesn’t work for AEW, he works for MJF! And if MJF were Wardlow, he would not mistake kindness for weakness or Wardlow’s family will be out on the street! Will the War Dog obey his “master?” Or will he finally bite the hand that feeds him?


Six Man Tag: Hangman Page & The Dark Order VS Adam Cole & reDRagon!

Before the battle of Adams at Revolution for THE AEW World Championship, Page and Cole call upon their friends! The Good, The Bad & The Hungy ride again against the undisputed paragons of pro-wrestling! Will champion or challenger have all the momentum going into their title bout?

The ref keeps the peace as the trios want after each other. The teams sort out and the Adams start things off! Fans fire up to see this preview, but then Cole backs off and tags to Bobby Fish. Hangman figured as much, and he circles with the Infamous One. They approach, Hangman avoids the roundhouse to fire off haymakers! Fish reverses the whip but Hangman slips out of the scoop to shove and BOOT! Fish flounders and Hangman brings him up to bump off buckles. Hangman stomps away on Fish, the ref counts and Hangman lets off at 4. Fans fire up and Hangman drags Fish up. Fish knees low and brings him around for knees.

Fish tags Kyle O’Reilly, reDRagon mugs Hangman and then double whips. Hangman busts through the double kicks to run Kyle over! And then kick Fish to suplex onto Kyle! Cover, TWO! Hangman drags Kyle up, tags in John Silver, and Silver brawls with Kyle. Kyle and Silver trade KICKS, but Kyle gets a facelock! But Silver suplexes Kyle first! Fans chant for “Johnny Hungy!” as he tags in Alex Reynolds. They get the legs to roll and TOSS Kyle! Fish gets in, but runs into double drop toeholds! DOUBLE BASEMENT DROPKICKS! Kyle gets up but Reynolds dodges him to dropkick him down!

Fans fire up with Reynolds, he covers, ONE! Reynolds drags Kyle up, underhooks the arms but Cole rushes in. Reynolds chases him off, but turns around into fast strikes from Kyle! Leg sweep! Tag to Cole and he drags Reynolds around to rain down fists! Cole tags Kyle back in, Kyle KNEES Reynolds low. Kyle wraps Reynolds up, cobra twist! Reynolds endures, and reDRagon links up to add leverage! The ref sees that and reprimands. Fish lets go, Reynolds hip tosses free! Kyle gets the foot but Reynolds fights his way over, hot tag to Hangman! The Cowboy fires off haymakers on Kyle then whips him to ropes.

Kyle holds ropes and bails out, but Hangman pursues! They go around, get in, Fish tags and Kyle baits Hangman. Fish KICKS Hangman’s leg out and then Kyle knocks the Beaver Boys down! Fish drops elbows on the leg, and now Cole wants Hangman! Tag to Cole and he hops up. Cole takes aim, leaps, PANAMA- NO! Hangman has Cole in the Alabama, but Cole flails to sunset flip! TWO, Hangman sits on the cover, TWO! Hangman rolls through to jackknife and Alabama! Cole fights that off, suplexes, but Hangman slips out! Hangman waistlocks but he ducks Cole’s elbow. Cole ducks the lariat, mule kick to the leg!

Cole brings the kneepad down fast, runs, but Hangman ducks the Boom! Hangman runs in but is put on the apron! But Cole sees him load up! Cole bails out before Hangman can slingshot in, and reDRagon regroups with Cole. Fans boo while AEW goes picture in picture.

Hangman dares someone to get in but the ref keeps him back. The ring count starts, Cole takes his time returning, and he still stays back to tag Kyle. Hangman tags Silver, Silver and Kyle circle again. They tie up, go around, Silver headlocks but Kyle powers out. Silver runs Kyle over, then flexes! He’s friggin’ jacked, baby! Things speed up, Kyle kitchen sink knees Silver down! Kyle rains down forearms on Silver, then lets off to drag him over. Tag to Fish and reDRagon stomp Silver down. Fish drags Silver up to clinch and throw knees. Fish snapmares Silver down, then goes out to slingshot senton back in!

Fish is frustrated but he drags Silver up to bump off buckles. Tag to Cole, Cole drags Silver up and cravats for a snapmare.

Kyle blocks a kick to bring Silver around and sweep the leg! HEEL HOOK!

Silver endures and kicks free, but Kyle tags Fish! Fish drags Silver, Silver BOOTS him away! Hot tags to Cole and Hangman! Cole stops in his tracks, he tags right back to Kyle! Hangman rallies on Kyle, whips corner to corner but Kyle reverses. Hangman uses that to triangle jump LARIAT Fish down! Hangman dodges Kyle, scoops him and FALL AWAY SLAMS! Hangman kips up to PLANCHA onto Fish! Then Hangman gets back in to run, but Kyle boots his lariat! Hangman avoids the roundhouse to POP-UP POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!

This Adam may have won, but he’s not done! He rains down fists on Reynolds, but Hangman BOOTS Cole down! Hangman fires off but Kyle gets Hangman in a SLEEPER! Fish runs, but Hangman fights free to deny the high-low! Hangman CLOBBERS Fish, BOOTS Kyle, then gets to the apron! Hangman takes aim, Cole turns around, but Fish sweeps the legs! Down goes Hangman, and Cole drags him in for more fists! Fans boo but reDRagon gets duct tape! They mug Hangman and tape him to the ropes!

Reynolds is thrown in, he takes PANAMA SUNRISE! Hangman tries but he can’t break free, and Cole gets in his face with the belt. So Hangman HEADBUTTS him! Cole SUPERKICKS back! Cole fires off hands, then SUPERKICKS again! Cole holds up the AEW World Championship and tells Hangman that it will belong to him! Will Cole prove he’s the superior Adam now, then and forever? Or will he be in for some serious #CowboyShit at Revolution?

My Thoughts:

A great go-home for AEW! For one, HUGE news to start the show. I had a feeling and yet didn’t think it’d be possible, but now Tony Khan and AEW own ROH! Word’s getting out that ROH will become the developmental to AEW, but only time will tell. Also no idea if this means ROH coverage will return, but still exciting stuff. Bryan VS Daniels was a great match to follow up that news, and it also segued perfectly into Bryan and Moxley having one more face-off before the match. I really don’t have an idea how this one goes. I would think Moxley wins the match, but it’d be a much bigger surprise if they still become a team after this since Bryan’s going very Heel and Moxley is Face.

AEW once again gives us an awesome battle royal. It was awesome to get Top Flight back at 100% with Darius’ return. And even 2point0 being the last team for a letdown was a great move. And while it looked like Top Flight had a shot to shock the world, the plan stays as I expected. Young Bucks, reDRagon and Jurassic Express are going to have a great Triple Threat tag, and I fully expected Bucks and reDRagon to cancel out so that Jurassic Express can retain. Jericho’s promo was just him repeating what he said last week, so that was a bit disappointing. It was also surprising that Santana & Ortiz even gave him fist bumps. Jericho VS Kingston could still go either way, but I was hoping for a bit more drama in the Inner Circle over this stuff. Maybe we still get that even after Revolution.

The segment with Punk, MJF and the rest of The Pinnacle went as I expected and yet still went above what I expected. Punk already got really bloody, and he’ll surely just get bloody all over again at Revolution. MJF got his shots in, I’m thinking he loses on Sunday. Wardlow put Bononi away much faster than I could’ve expected, but it worked perfectly within the story that’s building. I’m a little surprised MJF is “letting” Wardlow keep whatever title he wins, but Wardlow breaking free from The Pinnacle is still coming. Hell, it could happen at Revolution if MJF calls on him to help him against Punk.

Keith Lee had a good segment with Team Taz, you can bet Starks & Hobbs will try to get at Keith on Rampage as their go-home segment. Sammy had another good cue card promo, Darby & Sting had a good backstage promo, but what a surprise that we’re getting a TNT title Triple Threat before the Tornado Trios match. Being a Triple Threat could be the way Andrade gets that title while also putting dysfunction into the Darby-Sting-Sammy team. We got good promos to hype up the TBS Championship match and Statlander VS Hirsch, but I’m still bugged by what’s going on in the latter. Are we getting a completely unmotivated double turn? I’d really hate that.

The women’s tag match was pretty good, but it felt a bit clumsy. It has been some time since Britt and Rosa had a match against each other, they’re probably just working on their chemistry again. I’m sure their title match at Revolution will be much better, but with Rosa standing tall here, I have a feeling AEW is going to keep Britt on top. We got a good House of Black promo, I like that they are framing themselves as tweeners. Once Fenix is back, we can get a killer Six Man out of these guys. And we also got a killer Six Man in tonight’s main event, but Cole & reDRagon of course won here. They stand tall, beating down Hangman, Silver & Reynolds, because Hangman is going to retain that title at Revolution.

My Score: 8.8/10

Yuta joins commentary while Menard bumps Hook off buckles, and reels him in for a big suplex! Tag to Parker and he stomps Hook down. Parker stomps more, then pushes Hook around. Parker tags Uno, they mug Hook. Uno then bumps Hook off the boots of Menard and Reynolds.

Reynolds tags in, he runs side to side to ELBOW Hook! Uno SPLASHES, short arm LARIATS, and Reynolds covers, TWO! Reynolds stands on Hook’s head, fans boo but the Dark Order and X-JAS soak up the heat. But Hook clinches! Reynolds fights with forearms, then he bumps Hook off buckles.

Not only is X-JAS furious, but Yuta says this is unbelievable. But will the Decoder have to worry about the much more Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?


Backstage interview with The Outcasts & Anna Jay.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya, Ruby Soho & The Star of the Show to say they are teaming up for the first time in Six Woman Tag action. Saraya says yes they are, and sorry for cutting Renee off, Renee knows Saraya loves her, but… Isn’t Anna just the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? Ruby sighs and Saraya says “Liza Minnelli” is in a time out so shush. Anyway, Saraya thanks Anna for teaming with them, Lord knows they’ve needed some extra help around here. And also, they do have something in common that is giant, greasy, irritating, and needs to be handled. Oh, speaking of, here it comes.

Parker walks in, apologizes for not being here sooner, and then says hi to Ruby. But uh, yeah, the guys are ready to go, they’ll be out there for her, team effort! Um, no, Anna doesn’t want the boys out there. Especially Parker. What? But Saraya says this is why she loves Anna! She’s great. Yeah, she is. Hey, no, stop looking at Ruby. Saraya drags Ruby along, leaving Parker alone. Will the X-JAS still even be the X-JAS anymore with all this drama?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Schiavone says that 28 years ago, in this town, at the Mall of America, two men were in the main event for the very first wrestling match ever on TNT. It was Sting VS Ric Flair. And Schiavone wants to also say that the final match on TNT back then was Sting VS Ric Flair. So it gives Schiavone a sense of pride to welcome one of Minnesota’s favorite sons, as well as STIIIING~! The Icon makes his way out to the ring and fans howl for him. Schiavone then introduces the Nature Boy, the Minnesota native, Ric Flair! Fans “WOO~!” as Flair makes his way out now, and hugs Sting in the ring.

Schiavone has them bring it in. Wednesday night, they announced the location of Sting’s final match at AEW Revolution, March 3rd, 2024. It will be Greensboro, North Carolina, where these two set the standard for a great televised wrestling event. Sting stands at 24-0, the longest undefeated streak standing, and we’re just two weeks away from tickets going on sale. Sting asks to take the mic, and he howls for the fans! The fans howl back and Sting says Minneapolis, lots of great memories here! Not only did he and Ric do the first and last WCW shows on TNT here, but they did the very big, gigantic- Oh, can’t really say that on TV, sorry. Copyright and stuff.

But the massive match at Mall of America, everyone knows about it. Sting’s had great matches here against and with Lex Luger, Bam Bam Bigelow, and lots of other great memories. So good to be back. Thank you for those memories. Thank you, Tony Khan, Tony Schiavone and the Nature Boy! WOO~! Ric takes the mic now, and he says, “Wow. From 1972 ’til today. And believe it or not, I’m still alive. And that’s saying a lot, heh. Because I’ve covered a lot of ground and had a lot of fun. But there are three or four people that are always gonna be special in my life, and you’ll love these names.

“Dusty Rhodes, Ricky The Dragon, and a guy that I think I’ve wrestled at least 15 hundred times over our career, the great–and the word ‘Icon’ does not even enough to begin to say what a man he is. I’m so serious, to be back in my hometown in this moment, and this ride. This is an incredible ride. Think about the history of our business. I’ve been there with him since ’88, and I’m gonna be there with him in the end. And man, that doesn’t happen in real-life, guys. And y’know what? We’ve stayed as respectful and honest with each other as the day we met, and that’s really unusual. You’re the man, brother.”

Fans cheer, and Ric says, “We’re gonna dance all night and dance a little longer. We’re gonna stay up all night and stay a little longer. I cannot tell you where we’ll be at like the old days, but you know we’ll be going AEW strong! WOO~!” Fans echo “WOO~!” with Ric and Schiavone says Ric will be there for Sting at AEW Revolution, tickets on sale soon! The Icon and Nature Boy are riding off into the night, and we have the when and where. Now all we need is, who faces Sting in his final match?


Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander & Skye Blue.

Renee is now with the Shining Samurai, the Galaxy’s Greatest and Chicago Skye as she says a lot has changed in the AEW Women’s Division after Full Gear. Shida lost the AEW Women’s World Championship to Toni Storm, and Statlander lost the AEW TBS Championship to Julia Hart, the same match Skye Blue was in. Does tonight feel like a way to get momentum back? Kris says it has been a hard pill to swallow. “You work so hard for something, and you come back from multiple injuries, you come back and change yourself so many times, and you obtain something so precious, and it’s just taken away in a matter of seconds.”

And worse yet, Kris wasn’t the one who got pinned. Oh, okay, blame Skye when Kris had plenty of chances to win the Triple Threat, and didn’t. Shida tells them to stop. She also lost a title, she also feels angry, but not towards them. Not towards her partners. They can take their anger out on their opponents tonight! Kris agrees with that, and so does Skye. Will this trio of stars be able to bring down The Outcasts and Star of the Show?


The Don Callis Family VS JAH-C

So what if they lost the Like A Dragon Street Fight? “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs did damage to Paul “The Giant” Wight like no man has ever done before, and there’s still a lot left in the tank for Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita. Will they only be made stronger from that loss?

The teams sort out, Hobbs starts and Jah throws hands! Hobbs doesn’t even flinch! Jah runs, but Hobbs CLOBBERS him! In runs ??? but Hobbs picks him up to SPINEBUSTER! D runs in but Hobbs SPINEBUSTERS him, too! Fletcher & Konosuke step in, they all get a man up, and in synchronized formation, we get the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM, GRIMSTONE and BASTARD DRIVER!! Cover, The Don Callis Family wins!

Winners: The Don Callis Family, by pinfall

Fans boo but Callis celebrates with his “family.” Then Callis gets a mic to talk. “Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega! The Golden Jets! You put two of the greatest of all time into a tag team and what do you got? You got a team that could be the most dominant of all time. And I know that wins and losses matter here in All Elite Wrestling. But in the Don Callis Family, the only thing that matters is winning! And whether it’s singles, tag, or trios, the Don Callis Family will continue dominating until there’s nowhere for the Golden Jets to hide in AEW!” The ultimatum has been issued, will it only be a matter of time before AEW belongs to the DCF?


Prince Nana & Brian Cage talk with The Workhorsemen.

Nana says it is an unbelievable time for the Mogul Embassy. Cage says it’s always a great time. Nana says the Gates of Agony are in NJPW World Tag League, killing it and bringing home that money. But tonight, Nana needs to hire some help, and that brings in JD Drake & Anthony Henry. Nana has been watching them, he likes their style. That is why tonight, he needs their services. And this could be a huge opportunity for you both to step up to the plate and to prove a point. To impress Swerve Strickland, too. So tonight, Nana’s paid them, get the job done, and we’ll see if they can join the team. But he believes in them!

Nana & Cage head out, will Scrap metal & The Saint of Augusta help The Machine bring down the luchador trio in tonight’s main event?


Six Woman Tag: Anna Jay & The Outcasts VS Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander!

Both sides have said what’s on their mind, but it’s the emotions in their hearts that could make or break these team-ups. Will Saraya be able to keep things together between Anna and Ruby? Or will it be Shida who struggles to keep Skye and Kris on the same page?

The teams sort out and Kris starts against Anna. The fans rally as the two circle, then tie up. Kris waistlocks, SLAMS Anna, then drags her up to tag Shida. The former champs double whip, sweep and ELBOW Anna down. Then they shake hands to DOUBLE ELBOW DROP! Shida covers, TWO! Tag to Skye and she wrenches Anna to a JAWBREAKER! Anna blocks the superkick but not the BASEMENT ROUNDHOUSE! Skye pushes Anna around, but Kris tags herself in. Skye lets that go, to then tag herself back in! But Kris tags back in again! They argue, but then Shida tags herself in to get them both to stop.

But then Anna hot tags Saraya! Saraya gets around Shida, Shida gets around Saraya, but Saraya mule kicks Shida! Saraya runs, but Shida ENZIGURIS first! Shida fires up, the fans are with her, and Shida torture racks! Saraya endures, but Ruby says put her down! So Shida DROPS Saraya! Ruby storms in but Shdia kicks her low, and snap suplexes her onto Saraya! Fans fire up as Shida covers Saraya, TWO! Shida tags Skye in and Skye keeps Saraya from her corner. Skye whips, runs up and SHINING WIZARD on the ropes! But Anna distracts the ref so Saraya can keep Skye stuck, and Ruby ROUNDHOUSES Skye down!

Fans boo but Saraya howls to the moon. Saraya stomps Skye, insults her, and whips her to the corner as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, lets off to distract the ref, and Ruby digs her boot in! Anna pulls Skye’s hair to help out, then Saraya storms up to bump Skye off buckles. Tag to Ruby, she stomps away on Skye, but lets off as the ref counts. Saraya tells fans to shut up while Ruby drags Skye around. Skye throws body shots, then JAWBREAKERS! Ruby staggers back, Saraya tags in, and the Outcasts mug Skye! Saraya has Skye in the ropes to throw knee after knee! The ref counts, Saraya lets off, and she pushes Skye back in. Saraya keeps Skye from her corner, taunting Shida and Kris, then she stomps Skye.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, tags Anna and Anna CHOKES Skye! The ref counts, Anna lets off, and then Anna CHOKES Skye on ropes! The ref counts again, Anna lets off and distracts the ref so Saraya can SLAP Skye. Anna bumps Skye off buckles, Ruby tags in, and Anna ROCKS Skye. Ruby CHOPS Skye, stalks her to a corner, and stands her up, but Skye avoids the chop to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Skye and Ruby sputter and drop to their knees while Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and hot tag to Kris! She BLASTS Ruby, drags Saraya up and FISHERMAN BUSTERS! Cover, but Anna kicks it apart! Anna drags Saraya back and tags herself in. Anna stands Kris up, wrenches and HOOK KICKS! Then Saraya KNEES Kris down! Cover, TWO! Anna drags Kris up, QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! But Kris powers up to back suplex free! Ruby runs in, STO! Skye SUPERKICKS Ruby! Saraya YAKUZA KICKS Skye! Shida ROCKS Saraya, whips her but Saraya reverses, only for Shida to JUMP KNEE! Anna BOOTS Shida! Kris runs up, but into a COMPLETE SHOT! Anna tags Ruby and they get Kris up.

Anna HOOK KICKS, then Ruby SUPERKICKS but Kris pulls Anna into it! Ruby panics, Kris tags Skye and Electric Chair Lifts Ruby! SLAM and CODE BLUE!! Cover, Skye’s team wins!

Winners: Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander, by pinfall

The dysfunction wasn’t enough to bring down Skye and Kris, they made it work and now celebrate together! As for Anna, she is furious with Ruby, and Saraya pulls Ruby along like an angry mother with her daughter. Are the Outcasts going to be on the outs sooner rather than later?


BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

The implosion of Nana’s team all over a misunderstanding gives Penta’s team their first victory together! Will Penta, Komander y Vikingo take this momentum to next beat Action Andretti & Top Flight?

My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage here with a lot of tag team action. There must be something in Cassidy’s contract about opening shows, though, because that 8 Man Tag certainly felt main event worthy. But then it made sense in story that it had to go first so that the X-JAS could be in action before Anna, and Anna would tell Parker to stay in the back during her match because of how Ruby would be involved. Great win for Cassidy’s team, and great win for the Faces in the Women’s Trios match. Rather surprised Skye is getting her shot at Storm so soon. Yes, she interrupted Storm’s acceptance speech moment, and won here, but why not give us a promo segment between them first, then the match on Winter is Coming. But at the same time, debut in Montreal, they want it to be important.

Of course Don Callis Family squashes jobbers, but I like that we got to see Hobbs, Konosuke and Fletcher all in red ring gear. And seeing Don Callis’ Last Supper parody, it makes me think he wants a total of 11 faction members. I say 11 because “Judas” is already accounted for in Jericho. So far, he has five, Callis really is gonna have to recruit tag teams and/or trios if he wants an easier time of filling out the group. Really good main event from Penta’s team going against Cage & Workhorsemen. Of course the Faces win, but also it was clear the Workhorsemen were going to take the loss for the Heels. Kinda wished Cage would beat down the Workhorsemen after the loss, not because of the “misunderstanding” trope, but that’d probably take away from the Faces celebrating.

And given Rampage is prerecorded, turns out that was for the best this week. I’d only just heard today about how… controversial Ric Flair got in his part of the promo segment. Flair also tweeted about it, both apologizing and not apologizing for what he said. This is gonna be a long three months if everyone has to worry about Flair spouting off the stuff he got away with in the 1980s when he was much, MUCH younger. That aside, the entire segment was redundant anyway, we heard them talk on Dynamite, this is the same crowd that heard it all, it’s just a waste of time.

My Score: 8.5/10

The Maniac is 2-0 with a strong six points, but it may have cost him a leg! Will he have to watch out next round with that target on his back?


AEW shares footage from after Saturday Night Collision.

Eddie Kingston asks them what they want him to say. He knew this was gonna be tough. Tony Khan didn’t put any scrubs in this tournament. Eddie just maybe got too cocky, thinking that since he put two belts in the pot, he was a given winner. No one deserves to win, everything is earned. Eddie has Bryan next but he’s behind the 8 ball. Eddie says he will not do this. He will not go backwards. Humble in victory and humble in defeat. Eddie has to go heal up, Epsom salt bath, all that good stuff. The Mad King vows he will be ready for the American Dragon.

Bryan Danielson responds.

Bryan says he was actually impressed by the confidence Eddie had to put up both his titles for the tournament. But now, one loss and Eddie feels he’s behind the 8 ball? Against Bryan? Bryan fractured his orbital bone, needed surgery in two places, and yet he is coming into this tournament on fire! He is NOT behind the 8 ball, he is NOT going to be humble, he is here to win this and be the first AEW Triple Crown! Will Bryan’s Blue League start be Eddie’s Blue League end?


Tony Schiavone is backstage.

He brings up that Sting’s final match is coming. AEW Revolution, Sunday, March 3rd, 2024. And when it comes to where they’ll have Sting’s final match, they thought of the many great venues across the world, but what better place for Sting’s final match than Greensboro, North Carolina and the Greensboro Coliseum? So many great Sting matches were held there, but one in particular that comes to mind is 1988, Sting VS Ric Flair for the World Heavyweight Championship. So Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina, get ready! Joining Schiavone now are those very legends, Sting and Ric Flair!

First off, 24-0, the longest win streak in AEW right now, what a fitting place for Sting to have his final match and maybe end on 25 than in Greensboro. Sting says yeah, wow, all those years ago, it was March 8th, 1988, his very first world title match against perhaps the greatest world champion of all time in The Nature Boy. Sting would’ve never guessed that night, 35 years later, we’d be here now. The memories, 45 minutes but a draw, commercial free, the first time in TV history that any sporting event even did that. But that’s not the real point of it. The big deal was being in there with Ric Flair. That was a make or break night, and so thank you, Ric, for putting Sting on the map.

Sting says yeah, that is a fitting place to end his career all these years later, Greensboro. Schiavone says so many great memories, and for him and Flair, forty years ago, does he remember? Oh, Flair knows. The words cannot be spoken to emphasize what is about to happen! Greensboro, where Sting, make no mistake, Ric didn’t make Sting a thing, Sting made himself! 45 MINUTES! Commercial free! With Flair! Unthinkable! Sting walked back there to 25 wrestlers going, “Jesus! You’re the man! You did it, Stinger!” He went out there and did it like a man! That’s what this business is all about.

Flair is 74 years old, standing next to the Icon, with his friend, Schiavone, and going back to Greensboro for what will be the greatest moment of his life, and God knows Flair’s had some good ones. He is honored to be there at Sting’s side! They shake hands, and Flair says the ACC Tournament and all that, nah, this is one for the ages! Highway 85 will be lined up from Richmond, all the way to Charlotte, like it always was! Sting, The Nature Boy, and AEW are coming to Greensboro! Let’s give it to ’em! “WOO~!” It’s the 80s all over again! Tickets on sale December 15th! IT’S SHOWTIME!

A true war right here, and now Rush is 1-1! Will this ungovernable one find a way to take over the league? As for Briscoe, he is down 0-2 with no points, is he already on the bubble?


RJ City interviews “Timeless” Toni Storm.

Madame Storm seems rather bothered by something. RJ gets her attention but she tells him to sit. And don’t be so loud. RJ does sit, and Mariah May takes the title for Storm. RJ wants to bring up the championship acceptance speech last week. Yes, and she was rudely interrupted! Yeah, that’s true. How is she feeling? Storm says they partied well into the night, spent some time at the compound, JFK or one of the Kennedys was there. But now she is very fatigued, dehydrated, and has a touch of the gout. Oh, wow. Well, he wants to inform her that she is scheduled to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship. But given her state, is she worried at all?

Worried? Was Fatty Arbuckle worried? Was Jean Harlow worried? Was Frances bloody Farmer worried? No, they all turned out fine, and so will she. Before she goes, take off her shoe, she’s feeling swollen. RJ does take off her shoes for her, but will Storm have to focus before someone takes the title off her?


MJF is here!

Fans cheer as the AEW World Champion walks out here with the help of his cane, mic in the other hand. He has them cut his music, he gets into the ring, and the fans cheer him on. MJF gets right to it as he says “December 30th, Nassau Coliseum, Worlds End, it will be Samoa Joe VS yours truly for the grandest prize of ’em all, The Triple B, the AEW World Championship.” Fans cheer that, and MJF wants to be honest, though. When it comes to Joe as a person, eeeeeeh MJF doesn’t like him. But when it comes to Joe professional, MJF respects him.

MJF respects what Joe has done for the industry, and most importantly, when Joe came into AEW, he didn’t come here to line his pockets, he came here because he believes in those three letters. Fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and MJF says back in the early 2000s, MJF remembers getting a poster in his mailbox and it was for TNA Wrestling. And he remembers thinking, what even is this all about? He tuned in and couldn’t have been happier. He saw insane feats of athleticism, he saw a new cast of pro-wrestlers he’d never heard of before, but most of all, he saw one man among the rest, and that was the Samoan Submission Machine.

While Samoa Joe may’ve looked unconventional, he didn’t seem to care, and neither did any of the fans. Because every time Joe walked through the curtain, we knew he was the baddest man walking on God’s Green Earth. Now unfortunately, later on in his career, Joe’s talents were not recognized and he was not afforded the opportunity to be a world champion in the WWE. Fans boo, but MJF says what Joe did for this sport was bigger than that. “Joe proved you don’t have to be a massive male model bodybuilder to be a top guy in this sport. Samoa Joe broke the mold. Samoa Joe proved alternatives matter.

“And because of the road that Joe paved, it has allowed for a man like me to stand before you today. Without a guy like Joe, there may be no AEW. So Joe, very quickly, what I’d like to say, as much as this all pains me to admit, thank you.” Fans cheer that and join in, “Thank You, Joe! Thank You, Joe!” Yes, thank you, Joe! However… MJF has actually, though grateful to have gone down the road Joe paved, MJF isn’t too shabby himself, now is he? Fans cheer that. MJF managed to pave his own road, and built on a new alternative. He is AEW day one, and he has helped build this place brick by brick! Fans cheer “M J F! M J F!”

MJF says he did that by defeating some of the biggest names in this industry! Names like Cody Rhodes, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega. But of all the names MJF has had to face in this ring, the one name he looks back on, and not only was he lucky to win, he was lucky to survive, that is Joe. Samoa Joe is a wrestling legend. But December 30th is not about Joe’s legacy. It’s about MJF’s! December 30th is about answering the question, “Can Max Friedman outlast the Final Boss of this sport one more time?” So now, MJF is gonna make a promise. He promises to everyone watching at home and everyone here in this arena.

MJF promises that on December 30th, it doesn’t matter if his left knee keeps sliding in and out, if his right hip keeps popping in and out of socket, if his right shoulder is hanging on by a threat, or if Joe beats him within an inch of his life. Joe could be King Kong and Godzilla incarnate. Because MJF promises that on December 30th, he shows the world that it is not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog! And if you want to take what’s his… at Worlds End, you’ll have to put MJF down! MJF even breaks his cane!! Fans fire up with MJF, but then the lights go down.

Now there are lights blinking all over the place. MJF looks around, but THE DEVIL’S MINIONS ATTACK! Fans boo as one of them has a baseball bat!! But here comes Joe!! Joe said he’d have MJF’s back so here he is! He YANKS the big guy out, gets that bat, and he runs the rest off! Cameras have trouble here, but when things come back, a message types out on screen. “In the shadows, our game begins. Next week, MJF & Samoa Joe… will you face the unknown in a tag match? Are you a hero, Max?” The Devil has made his challenge to the champ! The fans chant “DO IT! DO IT!” and “He’s Our Scumbag!” Joe tries to get MJF to ignore all this, it’s what this Devil wants!

But MJF says “I’m so sick of your Scooby-Doo BS! LEMME EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU! I am not dealing with your crap when I got that guy breathing down my neck at Worlds End. No no. I am going to take out all of your men, one by one. I am going to unmask you, you coward! And next week, you wanna tag match?! YOU’RE ON!!” Joe isn’t for it, but the challenge has been accepted. Will Joe just have to save MJF from himself?


Wardlow VS AR Fox!

Speaking of someone who wants to take everything away from MJF, the War Dog is on the warpath, just waiting for the right moment. After what we just saw, is MJF going to be served up on a silver platter?

But wait! Fox BOOTS Wardlow down off the apron! And then FLIES out! But Wardlow stays up! So Fox FLIES again! Direct hit but Wardlow is still up! Wardlow HEADBUTTS Fox, then whips him at the apron. Fox 619s on the apron to hit back! And then he goes up the corner to MOONSAULT, but Wardlow catches him! SLAM on the apron, and then Wardlow box jumps up to the apron. Wardlow storms in, fans rally up, and Wardlow drags Fox up for an OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! Now with both men in the ring, the bell finally sounds and this is actually a match. Wardlow storms up on Fox in the corner, to then TOSS him across the way!

Fox flounders out of the ring and Wardlow is having fun now. Wardlow goes out to stalk Fox, CLUB him on the back, and the ring count climbs. Wardlow hauls Fox up to TOSS him back in! Fans rally, Wardlow storms back in, and Wardlow drags Fox up. Fox shoves Wardlow but Wardlow CLUBS him! Wardlow trophy lifts, but Fox slips free! Wardlow runs in, but only gets buckles as Fox slips out to the apron! Fox swings to dropkick, then he goes up to 450 SPLASH! Cover, ONE!! Wardlow snarls and Fox is stunned! Fox runs in to BOOT! Wardlow doesn’t budge so Fox BOOTS him again! And again! Fox runs, but Wardlow pops him up for a SPINEBUSTER!

Wardlow winds up, to LARIAT Fox down! Wardlow then hauls Fox up, POWERBOMB! The symphony begins as fans want more! Wardlow drags Fox up, reels him back in, another POWERBOMB! And then Wardlow goes up the corner, to SWANTON BOMB!! Fans fire up and Wardlow still isn’t done! He reels Fox back in, to LAST RIDE POWERBOMB!!! The ref checks, Fox is OUT! Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

The remixed Powerbomb Symphony was too much for Fox, and Wardlow storms off. When and where will Wardlow sink his teeth into MJF?

Backstage interview with Action & Top Flight.

Renee is with them and congratulates them on the big win. So good to see Dante back, how is that leg? But then Penta El Zero Miedo and Alex Abrahantes step in. Penta offers a fist bump, and Dante accepts. They’re all good given Penta was responsible for the broken leg in that Reach for the Sky Ladder match. But then Penta counts, one, two, three. Bring ’em in. Komander and El Hijo Del Vikingo join Penta, that makes one, two, three. And Cero Miedo! Dante nods, when and where will we see this top tier trios match go down?


AEW TBS Championship House Rules Match: Julia Hart VS Emi Sakura!

The Princess of the Black Throne successfully defended her gold on Collision against Lady Frost, but now she takes on the Queen of Joshi! And for this match, Dealer’s Choice says submissions can NOT win the match! Then if Julia can’t be Hartless, will she just have to be ruthless?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if the House Always Wins!

The bell rings and fans rally up behind Julia. Julia soaks it up, but Emi laughs at it. Emi and Julia smirk as they stare down, then they approach. Emi dodges Julia and laughs some more, but then Julia grabs her by the face! Julia bumps Emi off buckles, fires off forearms and stomps, then whips corner to corner.

Fans fire up and the ref checks Julia as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Emi stands on Julia’s face, the ref reprimands, but Emi steps away. She has to be careful, part of House Rules is that disqualifications are strongly enforced.

Julia stomps Emi into the drop zone, then goes up the corner. MOONSAULT!! Cover, Julia wins!

Winner: Julia Hart, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

Another defense in the books, Julia is still golden! Will she keep on winning with such unpredictable rules?


Backstage interview with Mariah May.

RJ City is with Miss May and says we saw her at Full Gear and last week, but we also know she’s here, hungry for more. Mariah says yes she is. She knows she’s the new girl and all, but she did just come from Stardom, and she had quite the run. She is dying to show us what she can do. So thanks for connecting her with Toni Storm. RJ says it’s nothing, he and Toni go way back, used to play squash together. No, really, RJ is quite the curator. And Mariah knows Toni likes him, so this means the world to her. No, no, Toni makes things happen. He’s just happy to help. Mariah seems a bit disappointed, but RJ says without further ado, go get ’em!

Mariah knocks on Tony Khan’s door, steps inside, and talks with the boss. Will this Tony be just as accommodating as Toni Storm?


Christian Cage is here!

The TNT Champion, the Patriarch, makes his way to the ring, security right behind him. Captain Charisma then gets a mic while the fans boo, and he says what he’d like to do right now is go ahead and invite the Rated R Superstar to this ring right now. Fans fire up for that, and Christian says he knows Edge is back there. Fans shout “ADAAAAM~!” and Christian says he just wants to talk about what Edge said on Collision. So if Edge doesn’t mind making his presence felt, Christian would appreciate it. But still no response? Did Christian make sure to do this when Edge isn’t here?

Christian waits, gets upset, and asks Adam “ADAAAM~!” that he’d like to speak with him in this ring. Please, someone, hit the mic, get Adam’s attention, something. Or should Christian go back there to speak with him? “You think you know him.” And here comes Edge!! Fans fire up as Edge storms into the ring, and of course the security becomes a wall in front of Christian. Edge paces and Christian says listen, management wanted this, not him. Fans boo that garbage, but Christian says they don’t need security. He asks these men to vacate the ring. They shrug and bail out, even though Edge looks ready to pounce.

Christian brings up that last week, Edge challenged him to a match for the TNT Championship on December 6th, Dynamite in Montreal. Christian is here to tell Edge that they won’t make it to Montreal. They get face to face and fans fire up. Christian says they won’t make it to Montreal because “I’m sorry.” What? Edge is also confused, and Christian says he knows what we’re all thinking. Christian is only sorry because he’s all alone, right? Fans confirm and they chant “BULL~ SHID!” at him! Christian asks them to understand. Edge took out “The Prodigy” Nick Wayne, he took out Killswitch/Luchasaurus, but that’s not why Christian’s sorry.

He won’t lie, he was pissed about what Edge did to Lucha- er, Killswitch, with not one but two Con-Chair-Tos. Christian was so mad, he jumped out of his house, got in his car and just drove around. He needed to think, needed fresh air. And somewhere during that trip, it turned into one of reflection. It turned into a roadtrip of soul searching, digging down deep, trying to understand why he became the person that he is, this guy who says and does such unsavory things. And then he remembered those times he and Edge would borrow Christian’s mom’s Ford Taurus. They nicknamed it “Toby the Taurus” because they took it everywhere when they were trying to make it.

They didn’t care where they went, they were broke, not a dime to their names, but they didn’t care. They were having the time of their lives! They knew they were gonna make it. They didn’t know how, but they knew they would. And dammit, did they ever make it, huh? They went on to become multiple-time tag team champions, and Christian will say it, the greatest tag team that ever lived! Fans do cheer that. Christian and Edge then became multiple time world champions, two of the greatest careers in this sport. But take the wrestling away, and it runs even deeper. Everyone knows Edge grew up with a single mom. Everyone knows that Edge didn’t have a father figure.

Fans boo, already sensing where this is going! Christian wants Edge to listen! Yes, he is the Patriarch of AEW, but in no way is he suggesting he’s Edge’s father. Christian is Edge’s brother. And in turn, Christian’s father became like Edge’s father. Edge went on family trips, sat at the dinner table, slept over! When Edge needed discipline, Christian’s dad treated him the same as his own kids. He picked Edge up, brushed him off, hugged him and cheered him on. To this very day, he is still Edge’s biggest fan. So listen, Christian will just say it. They weren’t just random guys thrown together. “I love you, man.” Fans boo that one!

Christian says they’re family. And listen, when Edge’s mom passed a few years ago, that was the hardest time of Edge’s life. Christian knows that. But some time before, she said, “What I wouldn’t give to see you guys in that ring, teaming one last time.” Christian started thinking, that they should do this for her! Let’s go on the journey together again, like Edge wanted! Edge & Christian, for Judy “Judemeister” Copeland! Let’s do it for her! Fans cheer for Judy, but Edge is conflicted. Christian drops the mic, holds the belt, and then rushes Edge! Edge LOW BLOWS Christian first!! Fans cheer as Christian leans on Edge in pain.

Christian slumps down and Edge lets him fall. Fans want that one more time, but Edge gets the mic. “Nice try, dumbass.” Edge tells him to sit up when he’s talking. Edge grabs the belt, tells Christian to shine it up real nice. Hell, sleep with it if he wants. Because next week, the title’s coming home with Edge! Oh, and one more thing, Edge almost forgot. G F Y!! Fans are thunderous as Edge takes his leave. Will Edge crush Christian’s spirit as payback for everything he’s said and done?


AEW Continental Classic, Gold League: Jay White VS Swerve Strickland!

The Switchblade and the Realest are both 1-0 with three points, and now they are going to battle in what could be the decisive battle in this block! With no Juice Robinson, no Ass Boys, no Prince Nana or Brian Cage, who will prove to be the slipperiest snake in all of AEW?

The bell rings and fans fire up for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White still throws guns up, but he and Swerve then tie up.

Swerve pushes White around, goes up the apron, and then he FLYING STOMPS White down! Fans fire up, Swerve puts White in, and then aims from the apron. But White gets a leg in the ropes! Swerve claws at White, pushes him away, but White BOOTS Swerve, then DRAPING DDTS! Fans rally for Swerve but White drags Swerve up to CHOP! Fans “WOO~!” and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Swerve gets in the ring, White pursues and covers, TWO! White clamps onto Swerve’s bad arm, then traps the other, and he stretches Swerve out as Dynamite returns to single picture. Swerve fights up, but White throws him down by hair! White again mocks the chant, “Whose House?” Bryan commends Swerve on toughness. He had a brutal Texas Deathmatch with Hangman Page, and the only thing taped up is that arm.

Speaking of, White clamps onto the arms again, but Swerve endures. Swerve fights up, throws body shots, but White throws him down by his hair! Fans boo, Swerve gets up to SLAP White! Swerve CHOPS, White waistlocks, but Swerve swings elbows. White gets under to SAIDO! White then storms up to drag Swerve up, CORNER HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Swerve is still in this but White scuffs him. White mockingly says he needs his points. White knees Swerve low, and again, but Swerve blocks the chop! Swerve wrenches, gets around, HAMMERLOCK BACK SUPLEX! White writhes and fans fire up!

Swerve snarls, storms up on White, and he ROCKS him! Body shot! Forearm! Body shot! Repeat! Swerve snapmares, rolls, but White catches the Complete Shot, but then Swerve slips out of the Urenage! Swerve goes to a corner, White runs in but Swerve goes up and over to O’Conner and Eddy Gordo RANA! White tumbles, staggers, into the SOMERSAULT COMPLETE SHOT! And then a gator roll into a deadlift suplex! Fans fire up as Swerve covers, TWO!! White survives and Swerve grows frustrated. Fans still rally up behind Swerve, and he grabs White’s wrist. White resists but Swerve still drags him up.

White reaches out, kicks Swerve’s legs, then gets free. White swings, Swerve dodges and comes back, COMPLETE SHOT from White! White then waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! White runs up, but Swerve DISCUS LARIATS! Fans are thunderous while both men are down and Bryan says, “How incredible are these two men?!” A standing count starts, both men stir, and White flounders to ropes. “This is Awesome!” as White comes back, he and Swerve go forehead to forehead, and they trade junkyard dog headbutts.

White then gets the bad arm, clinches, and URENAGES! Cover, TWO!! Swerve is still in this, this isn’t anything compared to Texas Death!

Swerve fights up, fights the sleeper, and hits an ELBOW BREAKER! But White still rolls Swerve up with his other arm! TWO! White storms up, Swerve trips and jackknife bridges, TWO!! BLADE- NO, Swerve slips free, but White fights the half nelson! And CHOPS!

Swerve CHOPS back! White CHOPS! We get the 15 minute mark, so time’s ticking away! Swerve CHOPS, White CHOPS, repeat! White kicks and CHOPS, then reels Swerve in. Swerve uses a leg to get free but White has him again, SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX!! Then the clinch, BLADE- ARM-DRAG!! Cradle cover, SWERVE WINS!!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall (gains 3 points; White earns 0)

White is shocked that he got beat! The #Jay1 aside, these points go to The Realest! Will the Gold League soon be whose house?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, with awesome Continental Classic matches. But also really good non-tournament matches, such as that Trios Match. Great return to action for Dante Martin, great win for him and his trio, and those three could really build themselves up into trios title contenders with matches like this. And really good TBS Championship match Julia and Emi, though they need to get better at bringing up how House Rules work. No Ropebreaks, the ring count is to 20, and there’s Dealer’s Choice. They just kinda threw out there that this was gonna be a No Submission Falls, which was honestly a brilliant move by Emi. But in the end, of course Julia wins, it’s still too early for her to lose this belt.

Wardlow squashing- heck, he demolished AR Fox, is fine for Wardlow but a shame for Fox. Wardlow is still staying strong as he waits for the right moment to go after MJF again, but maybe, just maybe, he’s been going after MJF all along as that big guy among the “gimp squad” that tried to get MJF tonight. Great promo from MJF to not just praise Joe but also bury Punk without having to actually reference Punk going back to WWE. Joe made the save as expected, and now they’re getting dragged into a tag match against any two of those goons, and who knows who they are really, but can’t wait to see how this all goes.

Awesome stuff from Christian and Edge tonight, a brilliant move for Christian to so blatantly play to Edge’s emotions just to save his own ass. But of course it was also brilliant for Edge to not fall for it at all and get the better of Christian. But uh, AEW needs to be better at live censoring their shows, that GFY got right past them. That aside, that TNT Championship match is going to be awesome stuff, could go either way, but I still want to see Luchasaurus betray Christian and finally become his own man-dinosaur. Not Jack Perry’s tag partner, not Christian’s henchman, but his own man doing his own stuff.

And as I said at the start, awesome Continental Classic matches. Bryan Danielson also being on commentary for these was a good move, that could easily be a thing he does after he retires, except I think part of retiring is staying home with the family. Anyway, Moxley VS Lethal was a great opening match, and I figured Moxley would win that. Maybe Lethal realizes he really has let Team Triple J weaken him with all their antics. Rush VS Briscoe then raised the bar, though with a somewhat scary moment where I thought Rush took a shot to the head but it was really a concern for his leg. Rush winning was a fair choice, and that puts pressure on a possible 0-2 VS 0-2, Lethal VS Briscoe in the next round. I say “possible” because Tony Khan doesn’t reveal the entire schedule at once.

And then just an awesome, borderline PPV level match of Swerve VS White. The fans were strongly behind Swerve, I was behind Swerve, so it’s great to see Swerve get to 2-0. Swerve’s becoming my top choice for Gold League and maybe even the entire thing. Swerve having the ROH World, NJPW Strong Openweight and the AEW Continental Championships, he could really do a lot with traveling between the three brands. Mogul Embassy is already in ROH given they’re ROH World Six Man Champions, and the Gates are in NJPW right now for World Tag League, so Swerve joining them pretty much everywhere, all four of them having belts, that’s great stuff to me.

My Score: 9/10
