CM Punk VS Dax Harwood!

The Best in the World returns after the hellish Dog Collar Match with MJF, and Austin, Texas is all fired up! But it seems that while he finally got even with the Salt of the Earth, Punk isn’t done with The Pinnacle. FTR’s Mechanic is seen off by Cash Wheeler, and looks to do this truly 1v1 with Punk! Will Punk continue to leave the Pinnacle behind as he continues to climb the ranks?

The bell rings and fans rally up for “CM Punk! CM Punk!” already. Punk and Dax circle, they feel things out, they tie up, and Dax puts Punk on the ropes. Punk turns things around, they end up in a corner, and the ref counts. Punk lets off at 4, he backs away, and he resets with Dax. Gunn Club is spotted watching as these two tie up again. Plus, the fans are chanting, “ASS~ BOYS!” at them, so… Anyway, Dax wrenches Punk’s arm, Punk wrenches back, and he arm-drags Dax. Dax headscissors, Punk kips free, and the two stand off. They circle again, tie up, and Dax headlocks. Punk powers out, but Dax runs him over!

Dax keeps moving, he slides under but Punk arm-drags him again! Punk clamps onto the arm but Dax fights up. Dax gets frustrated but fans continue to chant for Punk as Punk shifts to a hammerlock.

Fans boo but Dax sits Punk back up. Dax climbs up to the very top and he brings Punk up for a SUPERPLEX! Both men are down and writhing and a standing count starts again. Dax rolls out of the ring to the apron to save himself. Dax goes up top now, DIVING HEADBUTT!! Cover, TWO!! Punk survives and Dax can’t believe it! Fans are thunderous for “CM PUNK! CM PUNK!” but Dax drags him up. Punk resists the suplex to suplex Dax and himself out of the ring! Both men crash to the floor and the ring count climbs. Cash returns to check on Dax, and Cash drums the mat to rally up the fans.

Punk endures, Cash is going nuts for Dax, but the ref tells Cash to stay off the apron. Punk rolls, throws hands, then monkey flips Dax! ANACONDA VICE!! Dax taps, Punk wins!!

Winner: CM Punk, by submission

A powerful showing from Dax but Punk is still Best in the World! And he’s motioning for a title belt around his waist! Will Punk get his shot at a title soon enough?

 

The Jericho Appreciation Society speaks.

A picture is shown of a very young John Silver, and very young Chris Jericho, at a meet ‘n’ greet. Jericho says, “What a beautiful picture. Such a heartwarming story of a 12-year-old John Silver meeting his hero and his idol, Chris Jericho. And now, in 2022, he actually gets to have a match against The Influencer. Now let’s be honest, Hungy, you just being in the ring with The Big One puts you on a different level. But it doesn’t put you on my level. I’m gonna take you to school tonight, Hungy. And it ain’t gonna be pretty.” Daniel Garcia says that just as they said last week, the JAS beats up pro-wrestlers.

Tonight, Garcia will give us a perfect example as to why a pro-wrestler could never hang in the ring with a sports entertainer like him. Jericho says they will future endeavor the Dark Order, just like they did the traitors, Santana and Ortiz, and that piece of trash, Eddie Kingston! Where even are they? Angelo Parker says he’ll go see. Oh, nothing over here! Matt Menard looks to the other side, still nothing! Hager says they’re not here and they’re never coming back! They wouldn’t dare, because this is the Jericho Appreciation Society, and that? That is entertainment.

 

8 Man Tornado Tag: Darby Allin, Sting & The Hardy Boyz VS The AFO!

Once enemies, now allies, The Relentless One, the Icon, as well as Matt & Jeff Hardy, are now united against Andrade El Idolo and the faction he hijacked! But Andrade is standing down, will his Butcher, Blade & Private Party get even with Darby, Sting & Team Extreme?

Matt rains down fists on Kassidy, Butcher stalks Darby out into the crowd. Matt sets Kassidy up for Sting, STINGER SPLASH against railing! Butcher stalks Darby, ROCKS him with forearms, but Jeff and Blade have found their way over to them. Blade stalks Jeff up the steps, and we see Matt back drop Quen to the floor! Butcher stalks Darby up, Jeff hits Blade back. Jeff brings Blade along to throw into more railing. Butcher CLUBS Darby and follows him up the steps. Darby ROCKS Butcher and wraps on a SLEEPER! Darby throws crossface forearms on Butcher, and Matt is giving Quen “DELETE! DELETE!” buckle bumps!

Fans rally for Darby as he pulls hair and rakes Butcher’s eyes! But Andrade gets involved as he LASHES Darby with his belt! The ref reprimands but Andrade doesn’t care, he’s taking advantage of there being No Disqualifications! Andrade and Butcher get Darby up, to SWING into the railing, then THROW down the stairs!! Fans lose their minds and boo the AFO as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Matt gives Kassidy a SIDE EFFECT while Butcher stalks Darby in the hallway. Quen puts a trash can in the ring as Matt fires up, and Hardy kicks Kassidy, to get SMACKED by the can! Quen mocks “DELETE!” then helps Kassidy up. Quen stomps Matt out of the ring, then helps Kassidy over. Meanwhile, Butcher and Blade throw Darby around the pavilion!

Winners: Darby Allin, Sting & The Hardy Boyz, by pinfall

Jeff and Darby return to regroup with their tag partners! These extremely relentless icons have shut down the AFO, but who will get to go after El Idolo?

 

Backstage interview with FTR.

A tremendous opener, very rare for Dax to be in a singles match, but there was also some problems with the Gunn Club. Cash says his best friend and brother, Dax, did what he does every time, and that is wrestle from the heart. But then you’ve got those Ass Boys who think that their dad, Billy, has people’s respect, those two get grandfathered in. No! Those two are still puppies wetting the bed. FTR right here is respect. Dax knows there’s a portion of the audience that don’t really care for FTR, and he gets that. They’ve done nasty things in the past. But there is one thing that 100% of the audience cannot say and that is that FTR are spoiled brats.

One thing FTR can’t stand is spoiled brats! Those boys think they can come into Dax’s business, Dax’s profession, and take Dax’s spots? FTR is the absolute best tag team on the planet, bar none, top to bottom, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, EVERY night! FTR is the best, so Dax won’t even call those two “Ass Boys,” that’s a gimmick name. He’ll call them Billy’s sons. And FTR will see Billy’s sons next week. #TopGuysOut. Strong words from a strong and proven team, but will they prove to Austin & Colten that they are NOT ready for this?

 

Jon Moxley & Bryan Danielson w/ William Regal VS The Varsity Blonds w/ Julia Hart!

The perfect brawler and the perfect wrestler are so far perfect as a tag team at 2-0. They want to mold the future of wrestling through violence, will they do just that with Griff Garrison & Brian Pillman Jr? Or will the Ivy League MVP and Bulletproof BPJ prove the future is now?

Just like last week, Moxley & Bryan don’t wait to sort out, they go right at the Blonds! The Blonds are a bit more ready than Chuck Taylor & Wheeler Yuta were, they all brawl, but Moxley throws Griff out and Bryan KICKS BPJ in the corner. Griff hits Moxley back but Moxley whips him into railing! Bryan keeps on giving KICK after KICK, but lets off as the ref counts 4. Julia Hart seems to sit and sulk, or perhaps meditate, on the ring steps. Bryan whips BPJ and kitchen sink knees him down. Bryan then tags Moxley in, they mug BPJ, and Moxley CLUBS BPJ down. Moxley scoops to SLAM BPJ then run to KICK him down!

BPJ sits up, Moxley scuffs him and CHOPS him! And CHOPS and CHOPS! Moxley runs, but into a dropkick! BPJ tags Griff, Griff runs corner to corner, and he IVY LEAGUE SPLASHES Moxley! Griff throws hands, runs but Moxley blocks the boot! Moxley gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX Griff down! Tag to Bryan, they mug Griff now. Griff sputters as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Bryan has a neck wrench but Griff endures, so Bryan headbutts him down. Griff goes to ropes, Bryan brings him up and has the neck wrench again, for another headbutt! Bryan drags Griff by a leg to turn him over, and he hooks the legs up to then get the arms. Moxley tags in before Bryan lifts Griff up into the ROMERO SPECIAL! Bryan lets Griff down enough for Moxley to CHOP him! Griff falls over and Moxley covers, TWO! Moxley drags Griff up to suplex high and hard! Cover, TWO! Moxley drags Griff up, tags Bryan in, and Moxley hangs Griff out to dry for Bryan’s FLYING KNEE! Cover, TWO!

Bryan clamps onto Griff with a facelock but BPJ rallies the fans. Griff endures and fights up, powers Bryan back, and back drops free! Hot tag to BPJ! BPJ dodges Bryan, CHOPS him, but Bryan EuroUppers! BPJ CHOPS, Bryan EuroUppers, repeat! But then Bryan KICKS away at the leg, only for BPJ to CHOP again! Bryan EuroUppers, whips, but BPJ ducks and dodges to CLOBBER Bryan with a forearm! BPJ fires up, runs in and clotheslines in the corner! Then CHOPS and suplexes for the POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives but BPJ drags him back up. BPJ throws forearms in the corner, then runs in, only to be put on the apron!

Bryan forearms but BPJ counter punches! Dynamite returns to single picture as Bryan staggers away. BPJ springboards, into a KICK! Tag to Moxley, they get BPJ up, KING KONG LARIAT GERMAN SUPLEX! And then, PILEDRIVER! Cover, but Griff breaks it! Bryan gets in to EuroUpper Griff then runs, but is sent out hard! Moxley CHOPS Griff, CHOPS again, then CHOPS again! Moxley eggs Griff on and Griff fires forearms! ROLLING- Moxley DECKS Griff! Julia definitely sulks now, and might even be bored. Moxley runs, Griff BOOTS him! Griff hoists Moxley up, BPJ joins in, DROPKICK SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!

BPJ tags Griff and Griff drags Moxley up. BPJ climbs up, but Bryan gets in. Griff swings but misses, Bryan comes back to BUSAIKU KNEE Griff down! BPJ leaps, into a kick! PARADIGM SHIFT! Moxley gets Griff, Bryan has BPJ! HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS, alongside the DANIELSON STOMPS!! Bryan then drags BPJ into the LeBelle Lock while Moxley wraps Griff in the REAR NAKED CHOKE! Griff taps, Moxley & Bryan win!

Winners: Jon Moxley & Bryan Danielson, by submission

The Maniac and the American Dragon slay another team and Regal says that was incredible. Regal joins his students in the ring, and Moxley gets the mic. “I am a very, very lucky man. I am very blessed. I’ve been fortunate enough to compete against the best in the world, and I’ve been fortunate enough to compete, to learn from, the best in the world. But there’s only one man whose opinion I’ve ever cared about. His Lordship, William Regal!” Fans cheer that and chant “REGAL! REGAL!” Mox says Regal’s seal of approval is a mark of excellence, a badge of honor, and Moxley earned it! Through pain, through blood, and through torture, and even dislocated joints!

Moxley wears that Blackpool badge of honor with pride! Just like his friend here, the great American Dragon, Bryan Danielson! These two were forged in combat! And as His Lordship said, if you wanna get in the ring and stand across from them, you better step up or get stepped on. But this message is for anybody who thinks they have what it takes to stand beside them! For anyone who thinks they have what it takes to ride with the three most sadistic individuals in this business! There are no free passes. If you have what it takes, reach deep down into your soul and find that place where you love pain! If you want a badge of honor from the Blackpool Combat Club, there’s only one way to get it: the hard way!

 

MJF is here.

Maxwell Jacob Friedman also has The Chair Man, Shawn Spears, with him as he goes to the ring. And though he lost that Dog Collar Match, MJF is in a great mood because he screwed over Wardlow in last week’s TNT Championship match. MJF already has a mic to have his music cut, and surprise, surprise: the ring has security right up front. MJF says Texas has as many brain cells as they do teeth, and that would be a few, so maybe just pipe down. “Wardlow, Wardlow, Wardlow. It is such a shame that you couldn’t get the job done last week. I mean, really. Especially because unlike you, I’m actually a man of my word.”

MJF says unlike Wardlow- Fans tell him to STFU, but MJF says he honors his business agreements. When he said a few weeks ago that if Wardlow won the TNT title, he could keep it, MJF meant it! That’s why it is so sad Wardlow just isn’t good enough to beat Scorpio Sky. MJF wants to talk to CM Punk now. “CM Punk, I know it, you know it, these white trash hillbilly hicks know it. I had you beat at Revolution, just like I had you beat twice in Chicago. So what did you do? You decided to cheat to win. Let me make something perfectly clear: Don’t know where, don’t know when, but there will be another match. And when there is, I’m gonna give you the most embarrassing loss of your entire career.”

But even then, it won’t be over. MJF says it won’t be over until he attends Punk’s funeral and pisses on Punk’s grave. Spears is the only one amused by that thought. MJF says, “Now to go back to the other spineless coward, the War Dog.” The fans like Wardlow? Well that’s cuz they’re inbred. Wardlow, MJF will start calling him, “Pig.” Because that’s what he is: a greedy little piggy. When MJF first met Wardlow a couple years ago- Fans chant “WARD~LOW!” and MJF says that’s good. They can chant his name, because Wardlow, if not for MJF, not for the contract Wardlow signed nearly three years ago, the people wouldn’t even know who he is!

MJF made Wardlow! When MJF met him, Wardlow didn’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of. And thanks to MJF, Wardlow has a beautiful roof over his and his mother’s head. And how does Wardlow repay MJF? By costing him the most important match of his life, and then having the audacity to step into MJF’s ring, speak into MJF’s mic, and ask MJF to release him from the contract? “Listen here, Piggy. You didn’t sign some ferkakta deal with some shmuck. You signed a deal with the devil! And all the devil’s deals are ironclad!” Wardlow thought he had it bad before? MJF is about to make Piggy’s life hell!

If MJF tells Wardlow to jump, he will ask, “How high?” Fans start chanting for the Jesus cosplayer, and MJF says he’ll strap Wardlow to a cross just like Jesus! How about that?! If MJF deems it fit to kick that steak mother of Wardlow’s out of his house, Wardlow can’t say a damn thing, because MJF owns him! MJF owns Wardlow! But here comes Wardlow! MJF gets worried, and security steps up, but gets BODIED! Wardlow DECKS another, but the rest swarm in! MJF wants them to hold Wardlow down, and MJF wants refs! Fans boo as Wardlow is outnumbered. MJF says the little swine doesn’t get it. Wardlow doesn’t work for AEW, he works for MJF!

And MJF doesn’t want Wardlow around no more! So he’s trespassing! That makes him like the marks who hop the barricades! But don’t worry, Piggy, MJF will keep paying Wardlow. Just to stay home! Week after week, month after month, year after year, until all the people forget Wardlow ever existed! And until Wardlow ends up the same way he was the day they met: a nobody! “Have fun in the mud, pig! Take him away!” Wardlow tells security to get off, and he walks out on his own. MJF keeps talking to say he’ll squash rumors now. Some people think The Pinnacle’s over, but that couldn’t be more wrong! Now that the big oaf is out, the Pinnacle has never been better!

And starting next week, FTR in action, The Pinnacle will move up! What do they say about The Pinnacle, Mr. Spears? “When you’re in The Pinnacle, you’re always on top.” MJF and Spears have the most obnoxious grins, but will they really keep Wardlow stuck on the sidelines until he’s a faint memory of the past?

 

Backstage interview with Best Friends.

Chuck Taylor, Trent and Orange Cassidy stand on one side, Wheeler Yuta’s on the other. Tony Schiavone brings up how last week, Yuta got in William Regal’s face and Regal slapped him back. This is the first time all four Best Friends have been in the same area together, but Trent won’t let Yuta explain. “You know I never liked you. But these guys trained you. They brought you into this company and they let you live on their couch. And you’re gonna repay them by running off and trying to join the William Regal Tough Guy Club? I’m done with you.”

Yuta says he loves Chuck & Cassidy to death. But yeah, he’s never really liked Trent, either. And Yuta isn’t trying to be the best friend he can be. He’s trying to be the best wrestler he can be. So you either get that or you don’t. Yuta storms off, and the others let him. Will the Decoder prove himself worthy of that Blackpool badge of honor on his own?

 

Adam Cole VS Jay Lethal!

The number four and number three ranked singles competitors in the men’s division clash for the first time in AEW, but they’ve met many times before in ROH, and even for the ROH World Championship. But who gets a very important win that brings them closer to the AEW World Championship and Hangman Adam Page?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally up and the two tie up. Cole wrenches, wristlocks, but Lethal slips through to wrench back. Cole puts Lethal in the corner, the ref calls the ropebreak, and Cole gets a cheap shot in! Fans rally and duel as Cole fires more forearms and even stomps. Cole wrenches, whips corner to corner, but Lethal reverses to JAB! And CHOP! Lethal follows Cole to the other corner to CHOP again! Cole pushes Lethal but Lethal JABS and JABS and JABS! Lethal winds up to elbow Cole down! Lethal brings Cole up but Cole knees low. Cole throws forearms and Lethal falls against ropes.

Cole ROCKS Lethal again, taunts Letha, then wrenches to whip. Lethal reverses and hip tosses, to then cartwheel and dropkick! Fans fire up with Lethal and he covers, TWO! Lethal clamps on with a rear bearhug and he grinds Cole down. Fans rally, Cole fights up, but Lethal lifts. Cole fights that off, switches, fans duel, and Lethal switches back. Cole breaks free to PELE! Cole runs, but Lethal gets him for a LETHAL COMBINATION! Cole scrambles to ropes and then the apron. Fans rally and Lethal triangle jumps, but Cole ducks the dropkick! Cole smirks and gloats, “BOOM!” But Lethal dropkicks Cole down!

Lethal builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit but Lethal keeps moving! Lethal DIVES again! Another direct hit! Lethal wants the hattrick! Cole knows it and he moves around the corner, but Lethal DIVES over the camera man! Lethal still gets the threepeat, and reDRagon appears on stage to watch. Lethal dares them to come to ringside, and he watches Cole closely as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Lethal keeps his eyes on reDRagon as he backs away, and then he turns around into a BOOT from Cole! The one time he wasn’t looking. Cole refreshes the ring count, drags Lethal up and RAMS him into steel steps! Lethal clutches his arm and Cole cheers himself on. Cole drags Lethal up, puts him in the ring, and he drives elbows into Lethal’s shoulder. Cole drags Lethal up, turns him, and hits a NECKBREAKER! Cole dusts his hands off and then drags Lethal back up. Lethal gets a leg for a DRAGON SCREW! But Cole gets up to CLOBBER Lethal! Cole gets to a corner, makes sure his leg is good, then goes back for Lethal.

Cole drags Lethal up, bumps him off buckles, then brings him around. Lethal throws body shots but Cole knees low. Cole bumps Lethal off more buckles then walk off the leg pain. Lethal fires forearms back! But Cole snapmares him for a chinlock. Lethal endures as Cole grinds him down. Lethal fights up, throws body shots, then kicks a leg. Lethal fires a forearm, Cole gives it back. Lethal KICKS a leg, Cole fires another forearm. Lethal KICKS and Cole hobbles, but Cole ROCKS Lethal with a forearm. Dynamite returns to single picture as Lethal shows forearm but KICKS the leg again! Cole fires another forearm, Lethal ENZIGURIS!

Lethal gets the legs, fans fire up and he steps through, but Cole kicks him away! Lethal ends up on the apron, but he slingshots up and over Cole to roll him up! TWO, FIGURE- NO! Cradle counter, TWO! Lethal trips Cole, jackknifes, TWO! But Lethal holds the leg to step through! Cole gets another cradle, TWO! Cole full nelsons but Lethal drops to victory roll, for the FIGURE FOUR! Fans fire up as Cole endures! But reDRagon hurry to ringside as Lethal puts more pressure on. Cole drags himself and Lethal over, ROPEBREAK! Lethal lets Cole free and points out reDRagon. They stay back and Lethal drags Cole in.

Cole holds the apron skirt, the ref reprimands, and the ref is busy with the skirt so Fish gets on the apron! Lethal swipes at Fish, Cole rolls Lethal up! With tights! TWO, and Cole SUPERKICKS Lethal! Lethal drops, Cole brings down the kneepad! But Lethal CUTTERS first!! Fans fire up, Lethal runs and handsprings, into a SUPERKICK! Cole goes to a corner and goes up top, and Lethal flounders up into a PANAMA SUNRISE! Cover, TWO!?! Lethal survives and shocks Cole! Fans are thunderous and dueling as Cole tries to drag Lethal up. Lethal is dead weight but Cole still sits him up. Cole runs, but Lethal ducks the Boom!

Lethal O’Conner Rolls Cole, but reDRagon distracts the ref! Cole kicks out, Lethal handsprings, into a LOW BLOW!! Cole runs to hit THE BOOM!! Cover, Cole wins!

Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall

Give a big assist to Kyle & Fish! The number four contender beats the number three, surely they swap in the rankings. Cole gets a mic to then sit up on the corner to say, “There is nobody on the planet who deserves the AEW World Championship more than me! Hangman, he stole my victory at Revolution. And two of the last three matches we’ve had, I’ve won. Because last week, in that Trios Match, when I was pinning Jungle Boy and staring at Hangman Adam Page, I saw fear. Because he knows he’s looking at the man who’s gonna take his world championship.” Cole says Page caught lightning in a bottle at Revolution. Next time, Cole shoves that bottle up Page’s ass.

Cole says HE is a champion! HE is a winner! HE brings the fight. And speaking of, the “world champion,” is a coward. Hangman doesn’t have the guts to come out here to face these three man to man. But here comes the Cowboy! Cole, Fish & O’Reilly are waiting, Hangman gets in the ring, and fans are fired up for some “Cowboy Sh*t!” Hangman puts the world title belt down, takes off his regular belt, and starts SLAPPING Cole, Fish & O’Reilly around! Hangman keeps Kyle from running so he can throw hands, but then Cole LOW BLOWS Hangman! Cole & reDRagon stomp away on Hangman!

Cole grabs the AEW World Championship and brings it over. But here comes Jurassic Express! JB and Luchasaurus, and even Christian Cage, run off Cole & reDRagon, but Cole has the world title in his possession! “It’s mine now, Hangman! Kiss your championship good-bye!” Cole thinks the belt is his already, but will he lose to Hangman like he did at Revolution?

 

AEW previews Dustin Rhodes VS Lance Archer.

Friday on Rampage, the Natural takes on the Murderhawk Monster! Dan Lambert says, “We have the opportunity to once and for all end the curse of the Rhodes family.” Dustin won’t let Lambert utter the Rhodes name. But Archer says Dustin cannot act like he does not know who Archer is, because they’ve met before. Archer put Dustin down hard, but Dustin says it doesn’t matter if he’s knocked down 1000 times! Dustin gets back up! Archer says Dustin is like everyone else, and #EverybodyDies. But Dustin says Friday night, on Rampage, here in Austin, Texas, Dustin’s home, he’ll kick Archer’s ass! “Because monsters die, too!”

 

AEW returns with Tony Schiavone in the ring.

He’s already joined by Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti, and Schiavone says last time we saw these two, Paige VanZant attacked Tay during Sammy’s TNT Championship match with Scorpio Sky. Scorpio is the new champion, Paige signed her AEW contract, but how are these two doing after all that? Sammy gets the mic to say Schiavone is right. Three weeks ago, Sammy lost the TNT title. But it is what it is, can’t change what happened, and Sammy may not have the title, but he still has this: this ring. When Sammy’s inside the ring, with or without a belt, Sammy promises to give you a show like you’ve never seen before.

Sammy promises he will do something so crazy, it makes the people who paid money for a ticket to stand up in their seats and chant, “HOLY S*IT!” And Sammy knows, he’s heard it for his whole career, that he can’t keep going like this. The bumps are going to catch up and he’ll pay for this when he’s older. Well if he’s paying for it, then screw it cuz it’s worth it! It’s worth it because of the people! He gets that you have to give something to get something, and with the fans, they are giving him everything he’s wanted in this business. “Until now.” Sammy hands the mic to Tay, and Tay says now, these two want payback!

And Paige, Tay goes off in Portuguese, and then translates it: “BITCH! You’re gonna get your ass kicked, just like you did your whole fighting career!” Sammy gets the mic back to say enough talk, it’s Tay & Sammy VS any two idiots from American Top Team, right now! But Lambert gives them “the lay of the land” as he and the Men of the Year walk out. On their side: All Ego Ethan Page, “literally the only thing Canada has gotten right in who knows how long;” Lambert himself, “the most popular co-TNT Champion of all time;” Paige VanZant, “the biggest free agency signing in the history of AEW,” who had it in her contract that she could avoid crap towns like Austin, Texas!

But if the cellar dwellers can convince their parents to give them an extra $9.99 in their allowance, maybe they can subscribe to her OnlyFans and see just why Orange Cassidy’s keeping his hands in his pockets all the time. And last but not least, the TNT Champion, Scorpio Sky, “a man who has not lost a match since Tony Khan reached puberty over a year ago!” Now on the other side, it’s Tiny Tim and his girlfriend, Lucha-WHORE-rus! American Top Team will stay on top of the combat sports mountain, looking back on all the bodies they’ve buried. So unless Men of the Year are gonna give Sammy & Tay what they’re after…

Nope, Men of the Year laugh their way to the back. Yeah, that answers that. Kiss their payback good-bye. And Lambert kisses his TNT belt. But Tay and Sammy tell Lambert that they’re living rent free in his head since he go there, but if he only knew what Tay & Sammy did while wearing those belts… He’d know they now live in his mouth, too. WHOA! Lambert is disgusted, but he still carries that belt at a distance. Will Tay & Sammy find a way to get at Paige and whoever they can from American Top Team?

 

AEW previews the coming FTW Championship match.

Swerve Strickland says, “Hey yo, Ricky! Baby boy. All the little sweet talking that you’re doing, especially about the new talent that’s coming into AEW, taking over your supposed show. Nah, I’m not with that. So, since we’re going to be in your hometown this week, this Friday on Rampage, Swerve isn’t only just gonna take your pride away from you… He’s going to take the FTW Championship away.”

Starks responds with, “So let me get this straight. Swerve, you’re gonna challenge me in my second home of Austin, Texas, for the FTW title, huh? I’ma go ahead and grant your wish. So how about you show up, and you can bring Keith Lee if you want to, cuz I got ‘Powerhouse’ Hobbs behind me. Because there’s only one way to do it, and that’s the Absolute Way.” Swerve says this won’t be done in Starks’ hometown. It’ll be in whose house? Swerve’s House. Will there be a new FTW Champion after these two charismatic stars collide?

 

Red Velvet VS Leyla Hirsch!

It’s a rematch from Rampage but with a special caveat: Kris Statlander is barred from ringside! The irony is that Statlander made sure Leyla kept things #LEGIT and didn’t use the spare crossbar like she did at Revolution. Will Leyla get away with it this time? Or will The Chef see that coming and give Leyla what she deserves?

Velvet gets on the apron and Leyla BOOTS her! So much for keeping things fair! Leyla goes out, CLUBS Velvet, the ref reprimands but Leyla whips, only for Velvet to reverse! Leyla crashes into railing, then Velvet CHOPS her! Velvet whips Leyla to the other side hard! Velvet brings Leyla up again, to whip, but Leyla reverses to send Velvet into railing harder! The ref tells Leyla to get this in the ring, but Leyla runs at Velvet, only to get an elbow! Velvet then goes up the steel steps to FLYING RANA! Leyla tumbles and fans fire up! Velvet drags Leyla up and puts her in the ring, this is finally a match!

Velvet bumps Leyla off buckles, fires off body shots with that boxing background, then she stomps a mudhole! Velvet does the splits as she digs in her boot, then she drags Leyla to center for stomps. STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, but Leyla turns it right into a gut wrench suplex! Fans boo as Leyla covers, ONE! Leyla is annoyed, Velvet hits back but Leyla CLUBS Velvet as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Leyla drags Velvet up and carries her in the gut wrench before the suplex! Cover, TWO! Leyla is annoyed again but she taunts Velvet. Velvet SLAPS Leyla! Leyla drags Velvet down to rain down fists! Leyla lets off and looms over Velvet, stalks her to a corner, then drags her up. Leyla stomps Velvet, digs her boots in now, and lets off as the ref counts. Leyla runs back in to METEORA, and SWINGING DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Leyla smirks, pushes Velvet around, then avoids the body shots. Velvet makes contact with the next shot, but Leyla BOOTS her down! Leyla soaks up the heat and paces around Velvet.

Velvet kicks from below but Leyla puts her on ropes to dig her knee in! The ref counts, Leyla lets off at 4, and Velvet sputters. Leyla smirks and backs off. Velvet sits up and Leyla taunts her, but Velvet hits back! Leyla and Velvet scrap on the mat! Leyla CLUBS Velvet but Velvet throws body shots. Leyla ducks the clothesline to back suplex! Cover, TWO! Leyla is annoyed again but she wraps on a body scissors! Leyla squeezes Velvet, wraps on a chinlock and throws some short crossface forearms. Velvet endures as Leyla keep son the chinlock, and then Leyla focuses on the body scissors.

Velvet endures and elbows the legs. Leyla shifts to a rear bearhug as Dynamite returns to single picture. Velvet pries free, and JAWBREAKERS Leyla! But Leyla gets around, back suplex, but Velvet lands on her feet! Velvet shoves then follows to rally with LARIATS! Leyla gets up but into an arm-drag! Leyla ends up on ropes, Velvet runs to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet dares Leyla to get up now, but Leyla pushes back. Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves, ROCKS Leyla with a right, then kicks out the leg, CHEF’S KISS HEEL KICK! Leyla wobbles, Velvet runs, but Leyla catches the springboard for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!

Leyla goes from annoyed to frustrated and she drags Velvet to a drop zone. Leyla goes up, but Velvet CLUBS her first! Velvet turns Leyla around, ROCKS her, then has the arms! ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO!! Leyla survives and now Velvet is frustrated. Velvet tunes up the band, or perhaps preheats the oven? SCREW HIGH KICK! But Leyla rolls away to the apron before Velvet can cover! Velvet goes after Leyla, but Leyla CLUBS her and HOTSHOTS her arm in the ropes! Leyla then gets the spare crossbar! But she also hides something else in her trunks! Leyla gets in the ring, but the ref sees the crossbar!

The ref takes the obvious crossbar away, but Leyla uses the hidden tool for a WRENCH SHOT!! Cover, Leyla wins!

Winner: Leyla Hirsch, by pinfall

Again, anything but #LEGIT! But Leyla isn’t done with Velvet, either! She rains down forearms, then puts on the ARMABAR!! The ref reprimands but it doesn’t matter that Velvet taps! Here comes KRIS! No more ringside ban, she RAMS Leyla into the corner! And again and again! Kris fires off forearms, then TOSSES Leyla across the way! Leyla bails out and Kris goes back to check on Velvet. Will the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien’s new form be what finally humbles Hirsch?

 

Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & Mark Sterling.

Schiavone is with the still undefeated AEW TBS Champion, and “Smart Mark,” as Jade prepares for that 30th win. But who is her opponent? They’re not here to talk about that. Jade wants to talk about after the match. She’s already planning a huge celebration for going 30-0. Mark, take notes. They need money falling from the ceiling, green confetti, and green Lamborghinis. It’s going to be so much better than… Who was that girl Jade beat? Thunder Rosa. Right, whatever. But most importantly, Jade wants some fine, fine exotic dancers. And a section for her baddies, they can’t be anywhere else.

But what is Jade gonna wear? She needs to be in something fit for a champion! Nobody is like her. Green trim and… Well, she’ll keep brainstorming, Mark will keep taking notes, and Schiavone… Just cut the sh*t. Mark says you heard it hear first, a celebration fit for a queen. But will Jade overlook her competition and lose her throne before she knows it?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

This is a very special moment for many, let’s bring out the NEW AEW Women’s World Champion, Thunder Rosa!! Austin is all fired up as La Mera Mera is here. But then Vickie Guerrero shrieks, “EXCUSE ME!” She tells Schiavone to get out of her way, and then she tells Rosa that she may think of herself as a leader, and she’ll give a little bit of credit. Fans are booing and Vickie shouts, “I SAID EXCUSE ME!” Rosa sarcastically agrees that the fans should be more polite. Vickie continues to tell Rosa that Rosa does show up bright and early on Wednesday mornings. But as far as being a Texan, do NOT insult Vickie’s state!

Vickie says Rosa can take her fake green card, start the backstroke, and return to Mexico! Rosa gets herself a mic and tells Vickie that first of all, she got her US citizenship in the state of Texas. Vickie shouts, “EXCUSE MEEEE” and says Rosa is hysterical if she thinks that means anything. And then NYLA ROSE attacks from behind! Vickie laughs as her Native Beast mauls Rosa! “THIS is a true champion! And her name is Nyla Rose! And make no mistake, she is hungrier and thirstier for this title.” Nyla gets her taste of La Mera Mera, but will she finally sink her teeth back into the title?

 

Chris Jericho & Daniel Garcia w/ The JAS VS John Silver & Alex Reynolds w/ The Dark Order!

The Jericho Appreciation Society is finally in action as The Influencer and Red Death are in action together. They claim to be sports entertainers, and claim they’ll beat up any pro-wrestlers, but will they be able to take down the #1 contenders in the AEW Tag Division? Or will the first wrestlers getting beat up be the Beaver Boys?

While Jericho & Garcia have Hager, Menard & Parker backing them up, Numbers 3 and 4 have 5 and 10, Alan Angels & Preston Vance. Fans still sing Judas for Jericho, and Jericho still allows it. But Menard says the fans do not appreciate the fact Jericho allows the fans to sing that song! As far as Menard is concerned, there should be no singalong! But with that said, “Daddy Magic,” “Cool Hand Ange” and “Rock Hard Hager” hop out of the ring. The teams sort out, fans chant for “JOHNNY HUNGY!” as he starts against Jericho. Jericho shows off the abs but Silver shows off the guns!

Jericho pats Silver on the head, and the shoulder, and says HE is Silver’s hero. He is Chris Jericho! Then he pie faces Silver! So Silver ROCKS Jericho with haymakers! Fans fire up, Sliver whips, then runs Jericho over! And then CLOBBERS him with an uppercut! Then scoop SLAMS, and does the cocky Jericho cover! ONE, but Silver grins at a flustered Jericho. Jericho runs into an arm-drag! Silver has the armlock and fans rally up. Silver drags Jericho over, tag to Reynolds, and they double whip Jericho to then double drop toehold and double basement dropkick! Fans rally, Silver KICKS, Reynolds uppercuts, repeat!

Silver & Reynolds double whip again, Jericho holds ropes and bails out! The fans boo but Silver goes out after Jericho to KICK him down! Silver drags Jericho up to suplex while Reynolds build speed, TOPE BRAINBUSTER! Fans fire up as Silver & Reynolds get back in. Garcia runs at them, but into a FLAPJACK UPPERCUT! Then Silver & Reynolds strike the Dark Order hand pose! Jericho is furious and he kicks the steel steps! But then he plays like he got hit, and both Menard and Parker claim Vance and Angels did that! The ref isn’t sure who to trust, so she EJECTS Vance and Angels! Fans boo but JAS is in control as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

While the ref is busy arguing with Silver, Garcia stomps away on Reynolds! Garcia roars, Jericho gets back in, and they have Reynolds in the corner. Reynolds rams Garcia with a shoulder but Jericho CLUBS Reynolds. The JAS mugs Reynolds, Jericho CHOPS Reynolds in the corner. And again! And again, and again! Jericho stomps away on Reynolds but the ref counts. Jericho lets off to flip off the fans. Jericho then goes back to Reynolds but Reynolds throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! And runs, into a haymaker! Jericho drags Reynolds up to throw out of the ring, and he distracts the ref so the JAS can mug Reynolds on the outside!

Silver protests but the JAS is getting away with all of it! Garcia drags Reynolds and puts him in for Jericho. Jericho brings Reynolds up for a BIG back suplex! Jericho has the cocky cover, TWO! Jericho keeps Reynolds from Silver, scoops and SLAMS him, then goes to the corner. Jericho climbs up, Reynolds stands and Silver warns him, but Jericho still leaps, into a dropkick! Fans fire up as both men are down! Silver and Reynolds reach for each other while Jericho flounders. Hot tag to Garcia, and he elbows Reynolds down! Garcia drags Reynolds up to SAIDO! Cover, TWO! But Garcia still flexes on Silver.

Garcia throws an uppercut to put Reynolds in the corner, then he stomps a mudhole in him. The ref counts, Garcia digs his boots in, but Jericho tags in. Dynamite returns to single picture, Jericho drags Reynolds up to put him on ropes. Jericho digs his knee in, he lets off as the ref counts 4, and Garcia gets a shot in. Jericho makes Reynolds stand up but Reynolds throws body shots and forearms! Reynolds runs, but into Jericho’s throat chop! Fans boo but Jericho runs to LIONSAULT FLOP! Reynolds avoids the impact, crawls to his corner, hot tag to Silver! Silver rallies on Jericho, whips him to ropes, and FLAPJACKS!

Garcia runs in, but he’s thrown right into ropes! Garcia tumbles out, Silver mockingly applauds, and then goes back for Jericho. Silver whips, Jericho holds ropes and dumps Silver out! Silver lands on the apron, Jericho ROCKS him first, then triangle jumps, into a GAMANGIRI! Silver knows Jericho too well! Silver then CANNONBALLS onto Garcia, he CLOBBERS Menard, BOOTS Parker, and runs at Hager, to RANA him away! Silver then goes up top and fans are thunderous! CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!! Jericho survives but Silver fires off KICK after KICK to SUPERKICK! Silver fires up, ROLLING- CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO!!

Jericho can’t believe Silver survives! Jericho rains down fists but fans rally for Silver. Jericho drags Silver over, tags Garcia, and they CHOP and CHOP and double whip. Jericho whips Garcia so Garcia can whip Jericho in, but Silver tosses Jericho out! Garcia runs in, Reynolds tags and Silver dodges! Garcia hits buckles to get the ROUNDHOUSE to ROLLING ELBOW! GAMANGIRI, STUNNER and GERMAN SUPLEX! Jackknife bridge, TWO!!! Garcia survives the Beaver Boy Blitz and Hager is on the apron! Hager shouts to Garcia, but Silver DECKS Hager! He DECKS Menard and DECKS Parker, too!

Silver then DIVES onto Hager, but gets caught for a POWERSLAM! The ref missed it all while checking on Garcia! Reynolds goes for Garcia, but gets brought down into a cradle! TWO!! Pop-up KNEE from Reynolds! Reynolds runs, but into FLOYD THE BASEBALL BAT!! Jericho gets away with it because Garcia distracts the ref again! And then Garcia drags Reynolds around by his legs, for a SHARPSHOOTER!! Reynolds endures as Garcia sits deep!! Reynolds taps, JAS wins!!

Winners: Chris Jericho & Daniel Garcia, by submission

The Jericho Appreciation Society used teamwork and shenanigans to cheat the Dark Order out of this one! Is this a sign that the JAS will take over AEW?


My Thoughts:

A very good AEW, and quite the surprise that CM Punk wasn’t just back, but in the opener with Dax Harwood. That was an awesome match, especially for Dax as a singles guy. He used the Sharpshooter, that’s definitely a tease of the rumors where Bret Hart is coming back to AEW to replace Tully as their manager. Then the interactions with Gunn Club, the promo FTR had backstage, that’ll be a great tag match, and I bet Bret will show up after. MJF of course had a very good promo to respond to everything that’s happened since Revolution. MJF of course still wants after Punk, but it was a clever move on his part to handle Wardlow by forcing Wardlow to stay away. I bet Wardlow finds a way to defy his contract and attack in like the parking lot. Fitting, since his vignettes took place in a parking lot.

We got a great 8 Man Tag, but it was rather tricky having things happen in multiple locations as far as all the camera cuts. Great table spots in both locations, though. I figured the Faces would win, and now Andrade will have to fight for himself now. That could go either way, as Andrade could easily cheat and win and stay strong as the new leader of the faction. We got a great match out of Moxley & Bryan VS Varsity Blonds. A great detail was Julia acting very differently. Between this and her new attitude in her matches on AEW Dark, it’s all the more clear she’ll join House of Black. Moxley & Bryan of course win, Moxley has a great promo that tentatively names the faction, and with Yuta’s promo with Best Friends, Yuta is definitely becoming the first recruit.

Great previews for Rampage. Dustin VS Archer is going to be great, especially given their original match during the early days of pandemic. The FTW Championship is going to be just as great, and I’d love if Swerve won that belt. At some point, that belt has to leave Team Taz, even for just a second, and Swerve is a great guy to show his FTW side. We got a very good match from Velvet and Leyla, but of course Leyla cheats to win this time. Once again, Kris Statlander gets involved, her rematch with Leyla is coming and maybe they should make it No Disqualification just so Kris can get even with Leyla with her own brutal weapon shot.

Rosa had a good segment with Vickie and Nyla, though Vickie may have been too overbearingly shrill. I thought Nyla was going to be TBS contender but I suppose she’s still Heel, so she’ll skip that to go for the top title. Nyla will give Rosa a great first defense, but I’m thinking Rosa wins. Speaking of the TBS Championship, Jade is so confident she’ll get the 30th win, I almost feel like this sets her up for her huge first loss. I can’t wait to see who they get, but it needs to be a big name to make it all worth it. We got a fairly good promo segment with Sammy, Tay, and Lambert, and while Lambert goes for long hanging fruit, he kinda gets karma for Sammy & Tay implying very lewd things happening with the belt. We’re definitely getting Sammy & Tay VS Paige & Vanderford.

We got a great match out of Cole VS Lethal, but I feel like Cole didn’t need reDRagon to help him out there. I suppose it is more for Heel heat as Cole goes into the obvious rematch with Hangman, that he will surely lose because he was standing tall here and he stole the belt. Likewise, Jurassic Park make the save because they and reDRagon will be facing off for the tag titles, but that could go either way. It’d be pretty cool if reDRagon became the only team to have held IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag, ROH World Tag, NXT Tag and AEW World Tag Team Championships.

The JAS had a good group promo, though the only “Sports Entertainer” term was “future endeavor.” We did get a great main event with Jericho & Garcia making a great team against an already great team in Silver & Reynolds. I can’t say their in-ring style screams “Sports Entertainer,” other than perhaps Jericho pulling an Eddie Guerrero with the steps. Other than that, the distractions and cheating were the same as any Heel faction anywhere, and of course that is how JAS wins. JAS could easily go through more members of the Dark Order to build up their momentum and tag rankings, but totally expect Kingston, Santana & Ortiz to show up for revenge.

My Score: 8.8/10

No Disqualifications: Sammy Guevara VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs!

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

The moment Hobbs hops off the corner, Sammy JUMP KNEES! The bell rings, Sammy runs up to JUMP KNEE again! Hobbs staggers around, but he catches Sammy to TOSS him to a corner! Hobbs runs in, Sammy dodges and RAMS in! Sammy ENZIGIRS, Hobbs staggers, and Sammy springboards, FLYING CUTTER! The fans fire up as Hobbs staggers back to his feet. Sammy runs up to clothesline Hobbs and himself out of the ring! Sammy shouts, “I’m a freakin’ Collider now!” Sammy gets the steel steps in place and the fans fire up. Sammy comes back to whip Hobbs but Hobbs reverses! Sammy leaps the steps!

Hobbs runs up, but Sammy sends him into railing! Sammy repositions the steps, gets space and runs in, to use the steps to LEAP! But Hobbs catches Sammy, and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM on the steps!! Sammy writhes and flounders away but Hobbs tells the ref to get outta the way. The fans boo, Hobbs soaks it up, and Hobbs drags Sammy up. Hobbs says Sammy wanted this, and he brings Sammy around to DECK him with a haymaker! The fans duel, Hobbs scoops Sammy, APRON POWERSLAM! And again! And again! Hobbs then SLINGS Sammy into railing! The fans fire up as Hobbs says one more time!

Hobbs hauls Sammy back up, for a fake out. Hobbs doesn’t do what the fans want him to do, he does what he wants. Hobbs moves the other set of steps around, brings Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into railing! Hobbs asks Kevin Kelley what he’s going on about but Kevin isn’t sure Hobbs means. Hobbs tells Kevin to stand up so Kevin does, and then Hobbs demands Kevin hand over his belt. His belt? Hobbs tells him again, give over the belt. Kevin gives in and hands said belt over. Hobbs then takes the belt and uses it to LASH Sammy on the back! Fans are torn but Hobbs LASHES Sammy again!

Sammy writhes, Nigel tells Kevin this is his fault. Hobbs winds up, Sammy dodges the belt to SUPERKICK! And SUPERKICK again! Sammy grabs a chair, and he SMACKS Hobbs with it! And then HEADSHOT! Hobbs flounders against railing but the fans fire up as Sammy stalks him. Sammy tosses Hobbs the chair to KICK it into him! Then Sammy cravats, uses the steps, but Hobbs turns the cutter into a TOSS over the railing! Sammy’s leg clips the top, but Hobbs hauls him back up and over! But Sammy slips free, and CUTTERS to the steps!! Sammy gets the belt now and he LASHES Hobbs in return!

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

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

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

Sammy brings the equipment into the ring, MONITOR SHOT!! But that’s not enough so Sammy looks around outside. He finds another table! The fans are thunderous as table number three is put in the ring. Sammy hurries after Hobbs but Hobbs LARIATS Sammy inside-out! Hobbs storms around, grabs the table for his own and sets that up near a corner. Hobbs goes back for Sammy as the fans rally up, and Hobbs hauls Sammy up. Sammy JAWBREAKERS back! Hobbs wobbles, but Sammy SUPERKICKS! Hobbs still wobbles, so Sammy springboards and FLYING- NO, Hobbs catches him again! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!! Cover, TWO!!!

Sammy survives and now Hobbs is furious! Hobbs runs to BOOT Sammy down! Hobbs goes out while Sammy flops off the apron. Hobbs looks around under the ring, and he brings out a fourth table! The fans fire up as Hobbs brings this one to the ramp side. Hobbs sets that up, stomps Sammy to keep him down, then he goes to fetch a fifth table! The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

The fans fire up as Hobbs ends up on the tables! The fans give Sammy another beer, to SMASH it on Hobbs again! Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a LADDER! The fans are loving it, because now we’ve entered TLC territory! Sammy gets that ladder in the ring while the fans lose their minds! Sammy moves table number three outta the way so he can stand his ladder up. And it’s a big ladder! Fans chant “Please Don’t Die!” because this is extra crazy even for Sammy! Sammy climbs to the second highest rung, takes aim, and shoutout to Jeff Hardy! SUPER SWANTON BOMB through the tables!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as the ref checks Sammy. Sammy gets Hobbs up and into the ring and the fans fire up again. “This is Awesome!” as Sammy takes table number three and sets it back up! Hobbs flounders, Sammy pushes him onto that table and punches him down. Sammy then goes to the corner, which is comparatively short, but Hobbs shoves the ref into Sammy!! Sammy is stuck on the top rope and Hobbs snarls as he storms up after him! Hobbs brings Sammy up for the scoop! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM THROUGH THE TABLE!! Cover, Hobbs wins!!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

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

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

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

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

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

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

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win!

It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

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

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

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

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

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

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

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

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10

PLAY BY PLAY

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

With all the trios titles belonging to the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, many others are trying their hands at the trios game. Will Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen and the Zen Assassin open their third eyes? Will Dante, Darius & The Sight to See be flying high? Or will the Bounty Hunter, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion and The Man with No Fear steal the spotlight from them all?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rampage returns to single picture as Quen stomps Action back to the corner. Tag to Zay, Quen snap suplexes Action down for Zay to slingshot SENTON! Zay smirks and then drags Action up. Zay puts Action in the corner, CHOPS, then tags Quen. Private Party double whip Action to ropes, but Action ducks ‘n’ handsprings to DOUBLE BACK ELBOW! The fans fire up as Action and Private Party are all down. Action crawls, Quen grabs at a foot but hot tag to Dante! Dante rallies on Quen, whips, but Quen reveres. Quen runs in at the corner, Dante slips out to the apron and Quen hits buckles. Dante then goes up and around to GAMANGIRI!

Dante springboards to CROSSBODY! Cover, Keith breaks it! Darius runs up to CHOP Keith, but Keith ROCKS Darius! Keith runs, but Darius follows to HOTSHOT BULLDOG! And then GAMANGIRI! Darius steps in, but into a KNEE! Keith runs up to SHOTGUN Darius out of the ring! Keith pursues, but Action is there to go after Keith. Action fires forearms, Dante turns around to see Zay. Zay dodges Dante to then FLY out onto Keith, Darius & Action! Dante whips Sydal up and out but Komander tags in. Komander BOOTS Sydal, Dante BLASTS Penta, and Komander gets Sydal in an APRON ROMERO SPECIAL!

Dante builds speed and he FLIES over those two to wipe out Keith and his own teammates! Komander lets Sydal go, Sydal mule kicks Komander down! Sydal goes up the corner, to APRON METEORA! But Penta’s right there! APRON FEAR FACTOR!! Penta rises but Zay springboards, triangle jump STUNNER! Quen gets in, Zay gives him the boost to go up and up and SUPER SWANTON onto everyone else!! The fans are thunderous and Zay takes a bow. Zay then waits as Quen puts Penta in. Zay puts Penta up top, GAMANGIRIS, and then GIN ‘N’ JUICE DESTROYER!! Penta turned things right around on Private Party!

Keith runs in, Quen BOOTS him first, but Keith roars! Keith RISING HEADBUTTS to send Quen down! Penta sets up as Komander builds speed, BOOSTED TORNILLO onto the cluster outside!! The fans are thunderous again but Sydal rushes Penta! Penta sidesteps, Sydal springboards, but into a SUPERKICK! And then Penta tucks him back in, FEAR FACTOR!! Cover, Penta’s team wins!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & Bryan Keith, by pinfall

A huge win for this eccentric trio, will they be hunting down The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass? Or will they try for the Bullet Club Gold’s gold instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

After taking a week off for the NBA All-Star Game, Saturday nights are once again good for a fight. Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb each return to in-ring action, will these two rivals keep pace in the chase for gold? And we just saw Bryan Keith win big in the trios match, but he’ll jump right back into singles action against Malakai Black! Will the Bounty Hunter get another big win in his hunt for opportunity? Or will the Dark Father prove the House Always Wins?

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

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

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

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

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

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

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

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

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

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

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

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

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

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Skye Blue speaks.

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

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
