CM Punk VS Max Caster w/ Anthony Bowens!

South Carolina University explodes for the Best in the World! But as always, The Acclaimed’s Platinum Max has to have a diss rap! “I’m like Will Smith, I slap you if you smilin’. But you look like you hit more rocks than Hunter Biden. With your messed up teeth, your movies are the only way I’ll go to sleep. You’re not the Voice of the Voiceless. The ladies say, you’re the voice of the moistless. And homey, you need to keep back. I’ll have you crappin’ your pants like a Z-Pak.” Bowens tells Columbia, SC, “The Acclaimed have arrived!” But will Caster have to eat all the crap he just talked?

The bell rings and fans are fired up for “CM Punk!” as he circles with Caster. They tie up, go around, and Punk wrenches and wristlocks. Punk rams shoulders, wrenches again but Caster wrenches back to wristlock. Punk rolls back, gets a leg and trips Caster to then drop an elbow! Caster scrambles to ropes and Punk stays back. Fans rally behind Punk as he and Caster tie up again. Caster pulls hair to put Punk in a corner. The ref counts, Caster lets off but throws a knee low! The ref reprimands but Caster throws hands. Caster wrenches but Punk wrenches back to then snapmare and drop knees!

Punk goes after the arm but Caster scrambles to avoid the Anaconda Vice! Caster gets to ropes and Bowens coaches him while Punk waits. They reset and tie up again. Caster kicks low, wrenches and has the wristlock, but fans rally as Punk fights up. Punk slips through to headlock, but Caster powers out. Punk runs Caster over with a shoulder, covers, ONE! Punk gets the arm again and keeps on the shoulder. Caster whips Punk away but Punk ducks and dodges to CROSSBODY, but into Caster’s BACKBREAKER! Caster pushes Punk over to then drop knee after knee on the back! Cover, ONE! Another, ONE!

Caster is annoyed but he drags Punk up to CLUB on the back! Caster whips corner to corner hard and Punk bounces off buckles! Caster looms over Punk and mocks the title belt motion. Fans boo but Caster brings Punk up to whip him corner to corner again! Punk bounces off buckles again, The Acclaimed do the scissor fingers, and then Caster whips again. Punk tumbles up and out and Bowens warns Caster, but Caster turns around into springboard ax handles! Punk hits an atomic drop, then a snap suplex! Fans fire up while both men are down, and Punk gets up. Caster also gets up, but Punk whips him to the corner.

Caster avoids the knee and Punk hits buckles! Caster hooks the leg but Punk fights the Fisherman! Punk fireman’s carries, but Caster slips off to CLUB Punk in the back! BACK HAND, then a FISHERMAN BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Punk is still in this but Bowens tells fans to shut up about it. Caster hurries up top, but Punk CHOPS Caster first! Punk CHOPS again, then positions Caster before another CHOP! Punk goes up, SUPER STEINER onto Caster! Fans fire up and Punk runs in, SHINING WIZARD to BULLDOG! Cover, TWO! Caster still has some power to spare, but Punk is on the apron. But Caster distracts the ref and Bowens trips Punk up!

Punk is stuck on ropes, the ref questions Bowens but Caster hurries to springboard, COAST2COAST! Well, 75% or so but still! Cover, TWO!! Punk survives but Caster hurries up top again! Caster hurries, MIC DROP FLOPS as Punk moves! Punk kicks Caster, reels him in, PILE- Wait, Punk’s back is making this difficult. Punk grits his teeth and tries again, PILEDRIVER! Then ANACONDA VICE! Caster taps, Punk wins!

Winner: CM Punk, by submission

One more big win for the Best in the World! And just like anyone, he wants a title! Tony Schiavone goes to the ring to congratulate and interview Punk. What belt is Punk alluding to? Oh c’mon, Schiavone, you’re smarter than that. South Carolina knows! What does this motion mean? Fans chant his name, they can certainly guess. “There’s a couple things I don’t know. One: I don’t know who’s gonna be the champ in a week’s time. It’s either gonna be Adam Cole Baybay, or I’m gonna be looking down the barrel of some Cowboy Sh*t.” Fans like the sound of that either way!

Punk does know a couple things, though! There’s a lot of gray in his beard, and before his time in AEW is up, there’s gonna be a lot more of it. There are scars on his head, and he knows before his time in AEW is over, there will be a lot more scars! And the last thing he knows, before his time in AEW is over, he will be WORLD CHAMPION! Punk has made it clear for everyone, so then, how long will Punk have to wait before he gets his shot?

 

Backstage interview with MJFTR.

But before Alex Marvez can really ask anything, Smart Mark Sterling is putting up papers. What’s he doing? MJF explains that’s his lawyer. Yes, we know who Sterling is to MJF, but what about the papers? They seem to have Wardlow’s face- No no, we don’t say his name around here anymore. He doesn’t exist, okay? But what does exist is the Pinnacle. The Pinnacle, week after week now that the big stupid oaf is gone, are going to get wins. That starts tonight with FTR VS… What’re they called? The Asinine Boys? Billy’s kids? Who cares. Then next week, Shawn Spears VS Shawn Dean is an easy W, they’re all moving on up, baby!

Dax Harwood speaks up. He doesn’t understand what’s going with MJF and Wardlow, but he just wants MJF to understand that he is Dax’s friend, he is Cash’s friend, but so is Wardlow. Whatever this is, they won’t get in the middle of it. MJF says he would never. First of all, they’re not just friends, they’re damn family. And now he didn’t want to tell them this cuz he knew it’d hurt their feelings, but Wardlow used to talk crap on them all the time. Like, all the time. But that’s not what they’re here to talk about. They’re here to talk about winning! That is what he Pinnacle does! “Because when you’re in the Pinnacle…” MJF puts his hand in.

FTR leave him hanging? He nods to them and Cash puts his hand in, then Dax follows. “… you’re always on top.” MJF has a smug grin but FTR are still not comfortable with this. Cash & Dax already cut off Tully, will they be forced to choose between Maxwell Jacob Friedman and Wardlow?

 

Jon Moxley VS Jay Lethal!

The Maniac is ready to represent the #BlackpoolCombatClub in singles action, is he going up an equally lethal opponent tonight?

The bell rings and the two circle while fans rally. Lethal offers a handshake, but Moxley slaps it away! Moxley and Lethal circle more, tie up, and Lethal waistlocks. Lethal ducks the elbow to wrench and hammerlock. Lethal ducks another elbow to wrench and wristlock. Moxley whips Lethal out of the ring but Lethal lands on his feet. Moxley goes out, Lethal gets back in, and now fans are dueling. Lethal waits on Moxley to get back in, and the two go again. They tie up, Moxley wrenches to a wristlock, then headlocks for the takeover. Lethal keeps his shoulders up, gets to his feet, but Moxley hits another takeover.

Lethal headscissors back and fans rally as he holds tight. Moxley powers out, hits another headlock takeover, but Lethal headscissors again. Moxley shrugs it off this time, and he grinds Lethal down. Lethal fights up, powers out, but reels Moxley in for a leg pick. Lethal steps through but Moxley kicks at him. Lethal just catches that foot to step through with that leg! But Moxley kicks again, so Lethal just grabs that leg again! Moxley kicks one more time and is free, and then he throws Lethal out again! Moxley goes out faster, but Lethal gets right back in. Lethal won’t let Moxley go after him on the outside no matter what!

Moxley gets in and he dares Lethal to hit him! He has no guard, but Lethal isn’t sure what to make of that. Moxley SLAPS Lethal, so Lethal snarls and throws a forearm! Moxley hits back, Lethal hits again, the fans fire up with the forearms back and forth, faster and faster! Moxley gets the edge and he brings Lethal to his knees! Moxley then CHOPS Lethal, whips, but Lethal kicks back! Lethal runs, rams Moxley but Moxley rebounds to run Lethal over! Moxley SNAP GERMANS! Lethal staggers to a corner, Moxley runs in to clothesline! Moxley goes up to rain down fists! Fans count way past 10!

Moxley puts Lethal up top, climbs up after him, then stands Lethal up, but Lethal throws body shots over and over! Then Lethal shoves Moxley onto the top ropes! Moxley crotches then crashes down! The ref reprimands while Moxley goes out of the ring. Lethal hops down, builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Moxley hits barriers! Fans fire up as Lethal gets back in! Dynamite goes picture in picture as Lethal catches his breath.

Lethal takes aim again, builds speed, and he DIVES again! Direct hit and Moxley just hits the floor! Lethal says hey to the front row, then puts Moxley back in. Cover, TWO! Lethal drags Moxley back up to KICK his leg out. Lethal then drags Moxley back up, to KICK the leg again! Moxley crawls to a corner, so Lethal stomps him down! Lethal stands on the bad leg, but lets off as the ref counts. Lethal drags Moxley up, has the leg, but Moxley swipes at him! Moxley can’t reach, Lethal SLAPS him before the DRAGON SCREW! Cover, TWO! Lethal hurries after the leg for a toehold! Moxley endures as Lethal digs an elbow into the knee!

Lethal adjusts the angle on the hold but Moxley endures. Lethal throws down fists to keep Moxley down, then pulls on the leg again. Moxley sits up but Lethal punches him back down, repeat. Moxley grabs at Lethal’s head, manages to bring him in, and he BITES Lethal’s nose! The ref reprimands, Moxley stops and Lethal lets him free. Moxley runs but Lethal CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Lethal steadies himself, goes back up the corner, and fans rally up with the Macho finger. But Moxley ROCKS Lethal first! Moxley gets up top, brings Lethal up, SUPERPLEX! Both men are down and Moxley crawls. Lethal crawls away to avoid the cover!

Dynamite returns to single picture as a standing count begins. Lethal and Moxley rise at 4 of 10, and stand at 5! Moxley CHOPS and ROCKS Lethal towards a corner, but Lethal KICKS away on the leg! Lethal CHOPS, whips, but Moxley reverses, only for Lethal to duck and dodge, DOUBLE CROSSBODIES collide! Both men are down and fans fire up again! Another standing count starts, “This is Awesome!” and Moxley grits his teeth to get up first. Lethal sits up now, they both stand and Moxley ROCKS Lethal with a right! Lethal hits back with a forearm, so Moxley forearms back! Lethal forearms, Moxley forearms!

The bad leg gives out! Lethal BOOTS Moxley then runs! Handspring, LETHAL- NO! SLEEPER HOLD! And the drop, but Lethal rolls it back, TWO!! Moxley escapes but Lethal SUPERKICKS! And ENZIGURIS! Lethal fires up with the fans, and he brings Moxley in, BRAINBUSTER! Lethal hurries up top again, fans fire up and… MACHO ELBOW!! Cover, TWO!?! Moxley survives and Lethal is beside himself!

Lethal gets in the ref’s face but then he cools off. The frustration is rising, but Lethal works to focus. He gest the leg, but Moxley reels him in! Cradle, TWO!! Lethal escapes, but runs into a spin and PARADIGM SHIFT! Cover, Moxley wins!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

The Maniac avoids that Figure Four and manages to take this win! He offers the handshake now, having come to respect Lethal through the fight. Lethal gets up, is upset, but he still shakes Moxley’s hand. Will Lethal find a way to get back on a winning track in AEW?

 

AEW takes a look at Marina Shafir.

Since arriving in AEW, she has set out to be a problem. She uses backbreakers, kicks and racks to destroy her opponents. Will she look to take this ferocity all the way onto Dynamite, Rampage, and the AEW Women’s World Championship?

 

FTR VS Gunn Club!

Dax Harwood may not have beat CM Punk 1v1, but he and Cash Wheeler weren’t going to let Austin & Colten talk trash on them. Will FTR kick the Ass Boys’ asses? Or will “Billy’s kids” prove they’re Ass Men?

But before things get started, MJF makes his way out! The Salt of the Earth shows off the Dynamite Diamond Ring before walking over to commentary. “People used to say Where’s Waldo, now people are saying, Where’s Wardlow? Let’s go, FTR! Pinnacle for life, baby~!” The teams sort out and Dax starts with Colten. They circle, fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS!” but Austin is upset by that. Billy calms Austin down while Colten and Dax tie up. They’re in a deadlock, Dax and Colten break, and Colten double guns Dax. Austin also taunts Dax, but Dax laughs it off. They circle and tie up again, and Dax gets a top wristlock.

Colten arm-drags free, and “opens fire” on Dax with the invisible gun. Colten taunts “Lil’ Baby Dax,” then he tags Austin. Austin and Dax circle but the fans taunt the “ASS~ BOYS!” again. Dax and Austin tie up, Austin hammerlocks but Dax slips around to hammerlock back. Austin drop toeholds, steps on Dax, then fires his own invisible gun. Dax and Cash talk strategy, Cash tags in. Cash mocks the guns and then ties up with Austin. Austin wrenches and hammerlocks, but Cash reaches back and hits a fireman’s carry takeover. Cash has the armlock, and he mocks the “Bang bang bang.”

Austin fights up, puts Cash in a corner, but the ref counts. Austin lets off, but he throws a cheap body shot! Austin throws a forearm, whips corner to corner, but Cash goes up and over and things speed up. Cash drops, Austin hurdles, but Cash arm-drags! And arm-drags again! And then dropkicks! Colten gets in but Cash feints dropkick and Colten flinches! Colten turns back around for Cash to CHOP him! Cash mocks the bang bang and even “SUCK IT!” Tag to Dax, they whip Austin, drop toehold and an elbow drop! Cover, ONE!! Austin manages to get out of that, but Dax drags him up to wrench and tag in Cash.

Cash goes up, Dax wrenches an arm, Cash leaps and KNEES the arm! Austin flounders away and out of the ring, Cash sighs and Billy coaches his sons up. Cash goes out, he gets Austin up to CHOP him against apron! Cash puts Austin in, but Colten trips Cash up! Austin distracts the ref and Billy DECKS Cash! MJF is furious, the ref has to keep Dax back, and Billy tells Cash to “SUCK IT!” Austin goes out to rain down on Cash, Dax gets in Billy’s face but the ref keeps Dax from going after him. Austin drags Cash up and in, tags Colten, and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Colten stalks up behind Cash, drags him away from Dax, and Gunn Club double whips to double elbow! They fist bump, hug, and they both tell Cash to “SUCK IT!” Colten drags Cash up, bumps him off buckles then stomps away in the open corner. Colten puts Cash on the ropes to clothesline point blank! And again! The ref reprimands, Colten shouts that he knows about the count. Cash flounders, Colten stare down Dax, and then Colten drags Cash up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Colten tags Austin, they mug Cash, and then Austin throws Cash out hard. Austin distracts the ref now so Billy can stomp Cash down!

Dax goes over and shouts at Billy but the ref has him go back to his corner. The ref also makes sure Billy stays away. But Colten puts Cash in, then wraps up a chinlock. Cash endures as Austin pulls back, sits up, but Austin wrangles him back down. Austin pushes up to put more pressure on the hold, but Cash still endures. Cash keeps fighting up, Dynamite returns to single picture, and fans rally. Cash stands up, Austin brings him away, but Cash powers out to get a headlock of his own! Austin back suplexes, but Cash lands on his feet to back suplex back! Both men are down and fans fire up as MJF puts FTR over.

Tag to Colten, he keeps Cash away and RAMS him into the Gunn corner! Colten stomps away, Aubrey counts and he backs off, but then runs in to SPLASH! And then dropkick! Cover, TWO! Colten is upset with the count, MJF has the nerve to say Gunn Club cheats and all that, but then is technically proven right as Colten DECKS Dax. Colten runs in at the corner, but Cash dodges! Colten crashes into buckles but Austin tags in! Austin hurries to get between Dax and Cash, but Dax dodges the cheap shot and Cash ducks! Tag to Dax! MJF fires up with the fans as Dax rallies with big hands on Austin, then on Colten!

Dax puts Austin in a corner for EuroUppers, CHOPS, repeat! Colten CLUBS Dax, he whips, but Dax reverses. Colten duck san dodges but not the CALF KICK! Dax whips Austin, Austin reverses but Dax reverses back and reels him in, LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Dax is frustrated and MJF complains about Aubrey’s count. Dax gets Austin at the ropes but Austin HOTSHOTS him! Austin brings Dax up, but Dax resists the suplex! Dax tries but Austin resists! They fight for suplex control, but Dax wins out, only for Colten to trip him! Austin covers and Colten traps a leg! TWO!! Dax escapes and Cash brings up the leg trap! Billy shouts at Cash to shut up!

Wait, wait, we cut to the back, and it’s WARDLOW!! He doesn’t care that he’s been told to stay home and even banned from the arena, he is here in person!! MJF is freaking out as Wardlow TOSSES security, then DECKS and BOOTS, and even POWERBOMBS one onto a table! The popcorn goes flying and Wardlow is coming through the crowd! MJF is freaking out in a very different way than the fans are! Another guard gets a BOOT, and then another gets an even bigger BOOT! MJF can’t believe how bad security sucks! Fans are thunderous as Wardlow glares at MJF! Wardlow DECKS another guard, but then he gets outnumbered!

MJF says Wardlow may be a monster, but there’s 10, 15 men! He’s a greedy pig and doesn’t belong here! Wardlow points at MJF that he’s coming for him, but MJF doesn’t care. Back in the ring, Dax sees Colten get on the apron. Dax swings on him but gets caught! Austin runs over but Dax escapes! Austin narrowly avoids hitting his brother, but then Dax pushes Austin into him! O’Conner, TWO! Billy is there staring Dax down! MJF tells the “show dad” to get off there, but Austin reels Dax in! Dax turns lift into sunset flip, but Billy grabs Austin’s hands to hold him up! Aubrey reprimands, Cash LEAP FROGS Austin to DECK Billy!

Dax finishes the sunset flip, Austin rolls through, but Aubrey is so busy with Billy she misses THE BIG RIG! Cover, FTR wins!

Winner: FTR, by pinfall

MJF says that is why The Pinnacle is always on top! He leaves commentary to celebrate with his friends, but Dax is furious! This thing with Wardlow is bad for business! They’re MJF’s friends but also Wardlow’s, FTR can’t have that beef affecting them. MJF says he understands, but fans are thunderous for “FTR!” MJF wants FTR to listen to him. They can get past this. This is The Pinnacle right here. But will it stay that way with Wardlow out for MJF’s hide?

 

AEW takes a look at Rampage’s massive main event this week!

Will Hobbs says Keith Lee has been a big pain in his ass even before he arrived. Keith Lee this, Keith Lee that, bask in this, bask in that. Well Keith can bask and kiss Hobbs’ ass! Meanwhile, Keith commends Hobbs’ bravery for taking him. But the only problem now is, Hobbs wants him 1v1. Hobbs says Rampage is his show, and it’s Ricky Starks’ show. So, Keith, this Friday, he won’t bask in glory but defeat courtesy of the man they call P-P-Powerhouse. Keith tells “Mr. Hobbs” that he will #BaskInHisGlory. Will Hobbs learn that he cannot stop the one who is limitless?

 

The Jericho Appreciation Society speaks.

Chris Jericho stands with Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia, Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker as he says, “For over three weeks, the Jericho Appreciation Society has been the revolutionary force in sports entertainment. And when I call myself the Influencer, it’s not a catchphrase or a gimmick, it’s the truth!” Because for these last three weeks, Jericho has had people from around the world, from dirt sheet writers to fans to lowly pro-wrestlers from every roster in this country, including AEW’s, wanting in on the JAS. It’s not gonna happen! There’s only five of them. So anyone who wants to join, Jericho simply says GFY.

Garcia says if you saw what happened last week when those pro-wrestlers went up against the sports entertainers, you saw them “future endeavor” John Silver & Alex Reynolds, as well as Santana & Ortiz, and that, that… RAT! Eddie Kingston! “Cool Hand Ange” has an idea! He tells “Daddy Magic” to take a peek around. Take a peek? Yeah, take a peek! A peek? Okay, he’ll peek, and oh! Nothing! See that? Lotta nothing! No Santana, Ortiz or trashy Kingston. Hager wants everyone to get it through their heads! They’re not here, and not coming back! But when Hager pulls back the other curtain, SURPRISE~! MAD BALL!

Ortiz fires off on Parker, Santana is after Garcia, and Kingston is after Jericho! They all brawl, Parker gets tossed into road cases and then Ortiz helps Santana with Garcia and Menard! Kingston keeps on Jericho with headlock punches! They even bump into a cameraman on their way towards the stage! They go out a side curtain and fans fire up seeing this in person! Kingston fish hooks Jericho towards ringside, Santana & Ortiz follow while bringing Garcia and the others along. Kingston chokes Jericho against railing while talking trash. Kingston keeps on Jericho and Kingston BITES Jericho’s face!

Ortiz DECKS Menard, Kingston has Jericho in the ring! Fans fire up, Jericho wants mercy, but Kingston wants to clobber him! URAKEN!! Down goes the Influencer! Garcia scurries in but Kingston has him first! And he sets him up for Santana’s BOOT! Kingston stands on Garcia’s head while Ortiz RAMS Menard into steps! Fans are thunderous as Santana gets a chair! Santana tosses the chair so hard it clears the ring to the other side! Kingston makes sure to make use of it, though, and he SMACKS Garcia off the seat! Santana & Ortiz have Jericho up, but Parker shoves Santana down! Hager CLOBBERS Ortiz!

Hager POSTS Ortiz, then gets Kingston for a SPINEBUSTER! Hager rains down rights on Kingston, Garcia gets up to go after Ortiz! Menard & Parker mug Santana, and then Jericho gets his shots in on Kingston. The JAS coordinate, Hager lifts Ortiz up to coordinate with Parker, BLOCKBUSTER SPINEBUSTER COMBO! Menard fetches Floyd the Baseball Bat for Jericho! Garcia has Kingston in the SHARPSHOOTER! And then Jericho uses Floyd to CLUB Kingston on the back! Again and again and again! Jericho then gives Ortiz some shots with the bat while Menard and Garcia stomp away on Santana!

Jericho holds up Floyd triumphantly while his guys clobber the others again. Jericho then takes off his belt, Garcia rips off Kingston’s shift, and Garcia and Hager hold Kingston up while Santana & Ortiz have to watch! Jericho LASHES Kingston with the belt! And again! Kingston grabs at Jericho but he gets mugged 3v1! And another LASHING! Hager then sets Kingston up for a JUDAS EFFECT! Jericho grins and his men stand tall while fans boo. If these “sports entertainers” can do this to some of the toughest pro-wrestlers around, will AEW belong to JAS?

 

Backstage interview with Jade Cargill and Mark Sterling.

Tony Schiavone asks if she and Sterling have decided on the 30th opponent, aka Jade’s next challenger for the TBS Championship? They have! And Sterling did situate the “baddy section” live on Dynamite, so that’s there. But there were two options for the opponent. Sterling went with the most prestigious one, the Librarian, Leva Bates! Even Jade seems confused as to this decision! Leva walks in with a copy of “Doom Dada” and a notebook, and Jade asks Sterling, “Does it look like my 30th win should be a joke, Mark?” No, Sterling things this is perfect. Jade tells Leva to leave.

Sterling apologizes to a weeping Leva, but this only leaves the other option. And who is that? Uh… Mrnshfr. Who? Marina Shafir! MMA fighter, we saw the video package earlier, she’s a blackbelt and doing pretty good. He doesn’t sound confident. Well, the Librarian was perfect. Jade says she will take on this “Muriner Shurfer” girl. She’s gonna go take care of her baddies while Sterling takes care of this. Schiavone, cut the shit. Will Jade prove that she can beat yet another blackbelt? Or will she learn to fear Shafir?

 

Bryan Danielson w/ William Regal VS Wheeler Yuta!

We saw Moxley get a big singles win, now the American Dragon is in action! Will Bryan get to kick Wheeler’s head in all over again? Or will the Decoder prove he is worthy of the Blackbelt Combat Club?

The bell rings and fans are fired up for Yuta! Yuta and Bryan circle, tie up, and Bryan gets around to chicken wing and smother Yuta! Yuta drops to his knees, Bryan goes for a chinlock but Yuta drop toeholds to get a waistlock. Bryan slips around, wrenches and puts Yuta on ropes.

Yuta rolls back but Bryan reels him in for an armbar! Yuta clasps hands and reaches out, ropebreak with a foot! Bryan lets off quickly and fans fire up. Even Yuta applauds the sportsmanship, and fans fire up for Yuta as the two reset again. Yuta smiles while Bryan is surprised.

Bryan EuroUppers Yuta to a corner and fires off KICK after KICK! Bryan runs corner to corner, but into a dropkick! Yuta rains down forearms on Bryan! Then steps through to tie up the legs, Yuta has an Indian Deathlock on! Yuta eggs Bryan on, and Bryan throws body shots! Yuta hits back, they brawl, but then Yuta bridges back! Bryan endures the pain, even as Yuta goes all neck, no hands! The fans are thunderous as they duel, and Bryan turns to get the ropebreak!

Yuta lets Bryan go, Bryan goes to a corner, and Yuta runs in. Bryan puts Yuta on the apron, but Yuta ROCKS him first! Yuta goes up top and leaps, into a KICK! Bryan soaks up the cheers and jeers as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Yuta sits up, Bryan brings him up and whips him to ropes to hit a kitchen sink knee! Fans rally and Bryan acts like he can’t hear them. Or is he mocking Hogan? Either way, Yuta gets up to CHOP! Bryan EuroUppers, so Yuta CHOPS! Bryan pulls on an ear and then HEADBUTTS Yuta down! Bryan stands Yuta back up to hang out to dry on the ropes! Bryan then KICKS Yuta, and KICKS him, keeps him on the ropes, and goes to a corner. Bryan climbs up, soaks up the cheers and jeers, and hits a FLYING KNEE! Down goes Yuta! Bryan uses a knucklelock cover, TWO as Yuta gets a hand up! Bryan forces that hand back down, TWO as Yuta gets up again!

Bryan is frustrated but he keeps on the knuckle locks as Yuta stands up. Bryan KICKS a leg, then the other leg! Yuta drops, Bryan pushes him with his forehead. Yuta gets back up and they go forehead to forehead. Yuta KICKS Bryan’s leg over and over and over, but Bryan KICKS Yuta’s leg! Yuta falls down, Bryan brings him back up to bump off buckles. Bryan CHOPS Yuta, KICKS him, repeat! Yuta just eggs Bryan on! Bryan CHOPS and KICKS, but Yuta stares him down! Yuta CHOPS, Bryan CHOPS, but Bryan CHOPS again! And KICKS, and CHOPS again! Dynamite returns to single picture as Yuta still snarls.

Bryan CHOPS, Yuta gets in his face, and then CHOPS back! Bryan CHOPS, Yuta CHOPS, and fans are fired up as they go back and forth! Bryan EuroUppers again and again, but Yuta catches an arm to backslide! TWO, Yuta swings but Bryan dodges the clothesline to ROLLING ELBOW! Yuta rewinds, gets around, GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! But Yuta holds onto Bryan! Bryan shakes his head, fights up, pries the hold to switch, and Regal says Yuta is showing the same grit Bryan showed 22 years ago! Bryan wants the full nelson but Yuta drops, so Bryan KICKS him in the back!

Bryan drags Yuta back up, full nelsons, DRAGON SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Yuta survives and Bryan actually smirks. Bryan sits Yuta up, slaps him around, fish hooks his face, and then hooks the arms for hammer ‘n’ anvil elbows! Again and again and again, Bryan drives the elbow in, but he stops to get the chicken wings. CATTLE- NO! Yuta slips out and Yuta fires off hammer ‘n’ anvil elbows! Fans are going nuts, but then Yuta turns it into a SEATBELT CRADLE! TWO!! Bryan escapes but Yuta just roars! Fans are with Yuta as he gets Bryan back up, wrench and- NO, Bryan arm-drags free of the Olympic Slam!

Bryan runs, ducks and dodges, BUSAIKU KNEE!! But he doesn’t cover?! Bryan stares the ref down to let him know what’s coming. Fans are torn as Bryan stomps around. Bryan gets the wrists, but Yuta SPITS in Bryan’s face!! DANIELSON STOMPS!! Bryan then drags Yuta up to GOTCH HOOK PILEDRIVER!! And then LEBELLE LOCK!! Yuta is OUT, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

Bryan isn’t letting go! He’s smothering Yuta again! Yuta is purple but the ref convinces Bryan to let him go! Bryan may be pissed, but Regal is impressed by Yuta’s resolve. “This beating will teach him a lot about this industry.” Will Yuta be able to find that next level and prove himself worthy of BCC?

 

AEW hears from Darby Allin and Andrade El Idolo.

The Relentless One says, “I’ve been wanting to have this match, but week in and week out, it’s you interfere in my match with Sammy, I wrestle Isiah, I wrestle Marq, I wrestle Butcher, I wrestle Blade. So dude, just step up.” El Idolo says, “So, Darby, you want to fight? Andrade El Idolo always fights. Kid, I slam sense into you.” Darby tells Andrade to drop the assistant, drop the group, drop the money and just be himself: one of the very best. Andrade hopes tonight, Darby shows Andrade who Darby is. This is going to be one hell of a main event, but who comes out the other side in one piece?

 

Adam Cole & reDRagon head to the ring!

The “Undisputed Elite,” the paragons of pro-wrestling, walk out with the AEW World and World Tag Team Championships they stole! They’ve got taped-on labels with their names over the real owners’ names, as if those make it all official. Cole, Fish & O’Reilly get in the ring and South Carolina University is torn. They get mics and Cole notices a box marked “party supplies, top secret.” Kyle opens the box, and half a dozen golden balloons float out. Cole says “There it is! Boys and girls, welcome to the Undisputed Elite’s Championship Celebration! Now, first and most importantly, I wanna make this very clear. Hangman Adam Page & The Jurassic Express are not here tonight.

“And, they’re not here, not only because they were not invited to the party, but because they’re ashamed. They’re embarrassed that we so easily took these championships from them. And that’s the key word: took. Because some of you morons, some of you idiots are trying to say that we stole these championships. You can’t steal something that belongs to you. Because this celebration is not just for the three of us. No, it’s for all of you! It’s for all of AEW! Because AEW needs a new era. AEW needs a new crew to run the show. And AEW has got the three best damn pro-wrestlers on the planet, baybay.”

Kyle says he is seeing a lot of haters. They’re saying reDRagon doesn’t have enough wins. They’re saying reDRagon isn’t ranked high enough to challenge for these tag titles. Kyle says to the haters… Wait, what was he gonna say? Oh, something about how they’re wicked and the rankings don’t matter, because everyone loves them. And y’know what it is? Too much “cham-pag-ne” backstage. He needs to sit down. Kyle does sit, and Fish says the celebration has been epic. What his tag partner is trying to say is, this man, Adam Cole, his reputation precedes him! Fish & Kyle, well Fish will put their resumé up against anyone in the industry!

Fish says what we’re looking at are “the three baddest dudes that this company has to offer, bar no one!” Cole says that is exactly why this celebration won’t end tonight! It’ll go all week long! They have more cham- Wait! Hangman Page drives into the arena in a Tesla with bull horns on it! The Cowboy then storms his way up to the ring! He gets in, DECKS Kyle, DECKS Fish, DECKS Cole, and then fires off hands on Cole! Fans fire up, Hangman whips but Cole holds ropes! Kyle rushes Hangman but gets tossed out! Hangman BOOTS Fish, then TRIANGLE JUMP LARIATS Kyle! Cole runs in, into a FALL AWAY SLAM!

Hangman kips up, loads up, but reDRagon get Cole out of the ring! No Buckshot here, but Jurassic Express come up the ramp with Christian Cage! They CLOBBER Cole & reDRagon from behind! Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus drag reDRagon into the ring, Christian POSTS Cole! Luchasaurus choke grips Fish, for a CHOKE SLAM! JB has a full nelson, he lifts Kyle for the TAIL WHIP into FACEBUSTER! Christian then puts Cole in and Hangman slingshots, BUCKSHOT- But Cole ducks! Cole runs, but Hangman TOSSES him out onto reDRagon! Cole may have avoided losing his head, but he and his guys just lost the belts back to the true champions!

Hangman and Jurassic Express have put the would-be champions on notice, but will Cole, Fish & O’Reilly find a way to be the next challengers after all?

 

AEW returns and Tony Schiavone is on stage.

Here in South Carolina, let’s bring out the AEW Women’s World Champion, Thunder Rosa! Fans fire up for La Mera Mera, and she gets another chance at her spotlight moment from last week. Schiavone brings up Nyla Rose & Vickie Guerrero ruining that, so the floor is hers. Rosa says it was a shame that her celebration was cut short. But the thing is, she IS the new women’s champion! She is the first-ever Mexican-born wrestler to do it, and it happened in AEW! When Rosa came to AEW, she told everyone that she’d put Women’s Wrestling back on the map! She fought and clawed her way to the top to be the face of this division!

However, she doesn’t want to just be the face or pillar. “Thunder Rosa wants to be the face of ALL Women’s Wrestling! But honestly, it seems like every time I get to the top, there’s always bullies that wanna bring me down. But remember, Tony, pillars get knocked down. But foundations, they remain standing. And I will be a foundation in this company! So whoever wants to get at me, come and get me! I’m ready. And this brings me to you, Nyla Rose. I know you had a message for me last week. But I’m gonna invite you to use your grown words. Or do you need Vickie to dumb things down so you can understand my message?”

Rosa says she didn’t go through hell so Nyla could just get her. No no, senorita. She’s here to fight. And it doesn’t matter if she has to wrestle Nyla, she will wrestle the very best in the world! So it doesn’t matter if it’s here or another company, Rosa will defend her title, and La Mera Mera will be there! Will Rosa not just be the AEW Women’s World Champion, but the world’s champion?

 

FTR speaks backstage.

Cash starts with, “It’s been said by people like The Ass Boys that Dax and myself, we take ourselves a little too seriously. And maybe we do. We take this seriously, because it is everything that we’ve ever wanted to do. And we’re doing it together. Right now, we’re making history. We are the AAA World Tag Team Champions. Friday night, we become the ROH World Tag Team Champions, and then we’re gonna become the first-ever two-time AEW World Tag Team Champions, and we know exactly how we’re gonna do it.”

Dax says they came to AEW “to build a reputation, not lose a reputation, okay?” Dax loves pro-wrestling way too much to take second place ever in his career, so he’s tired of waiting! He vows, in front of God and the whole world, he will issue a challenge! Young Bucks VS FTR, round 2, to see who IS the greatest tag team of all time! Do they accept? #TopGuysOut. Will FTR amass not only a historic treasure trove of tag titles, but finally settle the score with Matt & Nick Jackson?

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose & Vickie Guerrero.

Schiavone asks their response to Rosa, and Vickie already takes over. “Thunder, the only reason what you said caught my attention is because you insulted our intelligence. Which proves to me and everyone else that you fear my client.” Nyla adds that Rosa wants to be the foundation around here? UH-UH! Not on Nyla’s watch! The Native Beast is the foundation, the cornerstone, from day one! And she refuses to be a footnote! She will now cement her legacy with Rosa’s blood! Rosa has a death wish, so allow Nyla to grant it for her. “I’ll be your genie. Abracadabra, bitch!” The Vicious Vixens storm off, when and where will Nyla get to sink her teeth into La Mera Mera?

My Thoughts:

A great episode of AEW, such good stuff is being set up for the Spring stretch. Punk has a great opener with Caster, and of course Punk wins it to further set up that he wants the world title. And I don’t know why he said “next week,” Battle of the Belts II is 4/15, but I suppose the point is valid. We’re going to see Battle of the Adams II at that event, and I’m thinking Page retains. We got a great segment out of “Undisputed Elite” because of how subpar the celebration in the ring was. Great promos, great appearance from Hangman in a Tesla that he basically put JBL’s longhorns on, and great scrap between UE and Hangman with Jurassic Express. Jurassic Express VS reDRagon is surely also happening, and that could go reDRagon’s way.

Great stuff out of FTR and MJF backstage, and a great match out of FTR VS Gunn Club. I was really surprised they had Wardlow show up here this week but I suppose Wardlow wasn’t going to be stopped this week or any week from just showing up. It was good stuff that Wardlow’s attempt and getting in almost cost FTR. Just as we saw The Inner Circle fall apart and become something new, we’ll surely see something happen with The Pinnacle. MJF could end up losing FTR’s loyalty, and to be different from Jericho, MJF could end up with just Shawn Spears. FTR also has a great promo to shout out Supercard of Honor and call out Young Bucks, FTR is going to be on a great run.

Speaking of the reformed Inner Circle, great segment out of Jericho Appreciation Society with Santana, Ortiz & Kingston. I figured the trick was going to be that this time, the curtains open and those three show up. The brawl naturally did go the JAS’s way, cuz they have the numbers advantage, but it was also a bit telling that Jericho used Floyd the Baseball Bat again. Pretty sure we get Proud ‘n’ Powerful VS Ever-Rise 2.0, Menard & Parker, while also getting the rematch of Kingston VS Jericho. PNP are definitely winning, but maybe Garcia and/or Hager help Jericho cheat Kingston this time, because duh, they’re Heels, and more often than not, a Heel faction leader wins thanks to the faction.

Moxley VS Lethal was a great match, another rough loss to add to Lethal’s story of trying to “find a way.” Bryan VS Yuta was amazing stuff, Yuta’s best match in AEW and probably ever. I also like Regal on commentary, him seeing great things in Yuta is, well, great. It looks like Yuta either needs to put on a similar performance against Moxley, or win against someone else established in the upper midcard. I really hope Yuta becomes the first new member of Blackpool Combat Club, it just seems right. Great promo vignette from Hobbs and Keith, their match is going to be awesome stuff on Rampage.

We got a pretty good video package for Marina Shafir, and it’s big stuff for her to be making a Dynamite/Rampage debut going after the TBS Championship. We got a fun little promo out of Jade, Sterling and Leva. This was the first time we’d seen Leva anywhere in a long time, so glad to know AEW at least remembers her. Jade VS Shafir is definitely going to be a great for Jade’s 30th match, and as I was saying last time, it is definitely going to be a big moment one way or another. Jade winning over another legit martial artist is big, but losing will still be fine because it was to a legit martial artist. Just not sure why we got a shot of Jade’s baddies without her…

Really good promo from Rosa, really good response from Vickie & Nyla, though the audio was odd with Vickie. But duh, we’re getting Rosa VS Nyla, probably for Battle of the Belts II. But I really like that Rosa is implying she wants to use the “forbidden door” to get at all the other women’s titles she can. And hell, she should definitely go for a female belt collector story. Rosa VS NWA Women’s World Champion, Kamille. Rosa VS the eventual ROH Women’s World Champion, whether that be Willow Nightingale, Mercedes Martinez or Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa VS Tokyo Joshi Pro’s Princess of Princess Champion, Shoko Nakajima. Those would be amazing for AEW’s Summer stretch.

We got a great first qualifier for the Owen Hart Tournament, Toni Storm is definitely a great get, and she’ll get past the crap WWE RawDown put her through. Not sure if she’ll win the whole thing, but she’s gonna have a great run. Pretty sure Hayter beats Skye on Rampage but it’ll probably be another great showcase. And just about any big name in the singles division for the men are gonna be in the tournament. All these matches are going to be great to fill out Dynamites and Rampages from now through May, and it’s going to be a great inaugural tournament on both the men’s and women’s ends.

Good promos from Darby and Andrade to set things up tonight, but I feel like they could’ve held off on announcing the tables match. That could’ve, would’ve, should’ve been something left for after the awesome main event from Darby and Andrade. But of course Andrade has his team help him and Andrade wins. Hardys fight off AFO, thus the tables match we were told about, that is going to be wild. And if Darby didn’t get the win here, I wonder if he and Andrade up things for Double or Nothing, like a No Disqualification that then leads the winner to a title.

My Score: 9/10

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

The Savior of the Backbreaker is set for an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match tomorrow night on Collision against Dalton Castle. But in an occasion of turnabout is fair play, The Conglomeration is watching him from commentary! Will the presence of Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy & Mark Briscoe make Roddy better or worse than usual?

The bell rings and Kyle says that while he loves and appreciates Roddy, Taven & Bennett, they’re being more like the Undisputed Cling-dom! Meanwhile, big Ben Bishop stalks some smack on Roddy, and then pretends he can’t see him. Roddy says okay, be that way. They tie up, Cassidy points out just how tall Ben is, and big Ben shoves Roddy down! The fans fire up, Roddy comes right back, but Ben TOSSES him away!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

The Conglomeration is in agreement, that was impressive work by Roddy, because Roddy is indeed that good. But Cassidy says it is time to go stare down with them. The Conglomeration stand on stage to stare down The Kingdom, but Roddy needs to focus on tomorrow night. Will Roddy punch his golden ticket to an ROH World Championship match? Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

The Virtuosa is served a glass of wine, and says we’ve never been formally introduced. We’ve all seen what she can do in the ring, but does anyone know what it means to be THE Virtuosa. “Wrestling isn’t just a sport or an art form, it’s both. And more set to a quickening pace than a staccato beat of bodies slamming, bones cracking, tendons tearing! All building towards a beautiful and violent crescendo.” Deonna likes what AEW has forced her to become. “Because here, actions have consequences.” And Deonna vows to burn the empire to the ground, to remake it in her own image. This is the Age of the Virtuosa.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Renee Paquette caught up with Chris Jericho, “Big Bill” Morrissey & Bryan Keith, and asks what the hell. Yes, she’s seen The Learning Tree do “a ton of horrible other things” throughout his career, but tonight with Samoa Joe crossed a line. What was he thinking? Jericho smiles, the leather belt gifted to him by Martha Hart still wrapped around his hand. He waves to the camera and says, “Hi, guys. And Renee, I don’t know why you’re so surprised. This is exactly what I’ve been saying for a long, long time. If you’ve listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. Look at The Redwood and Bad Apple.

“But if you don’t listen to The Learning Tree, bad things happen. Shibata had a chance, now his arm is hurt. Hook had a chance, we had to burn his face off with a fireball. And Samoa Joke, for years, I’ve been telling you to listen to The Learning Tree, you didn’t, we ran you through a wall, and now you’re in the hospital.” Bill is stifling a laugh this entire time. Jericho says if Joe needs something to help with his inflamed muscles he might have, try ginger and black pepper. It’s really good for you. See, Renee? Lots of lessons to be learned. And even more will be learned on Dynamite 250, with a special edition of TV Time with Chris Jericho. Thanks, guys~…!

Jericho leaves, and Bill says one of the biggest lessons that Jericho has taught them is that the more TV Time, the better. And they want as much TV Time as possible! Because The Learning Tree, The Bad Apple and The Redwood are always maximizing their minutes. She should try it some time. Keith says if you don’t respect Chris Jericho, they will MAKE you respect Chris Jericho. Will everyone in AEW learn the hard way that Jericho isn’t kidding around?

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

That could’ve been a win by knockout with that killer haymaker! But will Shane Taylor Promotions continue to rampage until they prove they prove they’re the elite of All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage, and while they shoved five matches onto this card again, they at least did their best to put story behind most of these. Roderick Strong was of course beating Ben Bishop, but they gave us a storyline plug by having The Conglomeration on commentary. And while Thunder Rosa was of course beating Rachael Ellering, they gave us story build with Deonna attacking them both. I feel like this will give us Deonna VS Ellering next, to stretch things out so that the true blowoff of Deonna VS Rosa isn’t until All In, probably in the All In Zero Hour. For that matter, that’s probably where Conglomeration VS Undisputed Kingdom 3v3 happens, too.

I’m a bit torn on the promo from Learning Tree Jericho and crew. The positive is that it was really good. I said for Dynamite that I like how the payoff is Jericho’s gone from condescending to sinister, and even Big Bill is getting into this crazy persona. The negative for me is that they kinda shoved this in here. I know we DO need to hear Jericho’s explanation, but if it was “after Dynamite,” then find a way to make it part of Dynamite. Or just leave it for Saturday Night Collision so that you aren’t already stuffing a one hour program full to the brim.

Great opening tag from House of Black VS Premier Athletes with Sterling & Woods of course getting involved, but great win for Malakai & Brody in that 4v2 situation. Still banking on them screwing over The Patriarchy during a Unified World Trios Championship match. The Six Man Tag was really good but not sure it was main event material compared to the Fatal 4 Way. Good stuff for the Six Man Tag, everyone got their shine, but that Fatal 4 Way was just incredible. Great win for Fenix to stay hot while all the titles have stories going into All In, but he could get a shot at like, Okada’s Continental Championship to give us a dream match moment before the PPV.

My Score: 8.8/10
