Kevin Owens heads to the ring!

Last week to close out Raw, the Prizefighter called out the Texas Rattlesnake for WrestleMania. Stone Cold Steve Austin answered online with a “OH HELL YEAH!” Kevin now gets a mic and looks to the WrestleMania sign. Jacksonville is booing but Kevin says, “Hey yo. What you’re looking at right now is the happiest Canadian camper in the world. Because ladies and gentlemen, it’s official. I am going to WrestleMania! And as far as I’m concerned, I’m not just going to WrestleMania, I am going to the main event of WrestleMania Saturday, because my guest on that night for the KO Show is none other than the greatest of all time, Stone Cold Steve Austin!”

Kevin says that for a minute, it looked like all hope was lost for him. So he used his superior Canadian intellect and started thinking, “What can I do?” And that’s when he got it. He knew what to do! Since none of these yellow-teethed Texans can turn down a challenge, why not challenge the embodiment of Texas itself? Kevin knew Austin would accept, and now he’s pretty proud. Now, the entire world- Fans chant for “USA! USA!” Yes, including the USA, everyone gets to witness the most stupendous KO Show of all time as he decimate and smears Stone Cold all over Texas, from Dallas to Austin to San Antonio to Corpus Christi to Loredo!

Kevin heard Stone Cold’s gonna open one last can of whoop ass on Kevin? EH-EH! Not happening! The only can that will open is a nice, cold can of Canadian beer after he’s done with Austin. And Kevin doesn’t even like beer! He’ll make an exception on that night, because mark Kevin’s words. NO one will be saying “OH HELL YEAH” after Kevin’s done with Austin. They’ll be going “OH HELL NO” as Kevin beats the hell outta Austin! That’s the bottom line, cuz KO said so! And then he gives the cameraman a STUNNER!! Will KO #StunTheWorld when he gives one of those to Austin? Or will he get a stunner from the man who did it best?

 

Finn Balor VS Damian Priest!

The Prince wants after the Archer of Infamy after the last two times Priest has roughed him up! Will Finn hit his target? Or will Damian earn himself a rematch for the US Championship in time for WrestleMania?

Raw returns and Priest makes his entrance. But then Austin Theory makes his own entrance, clearly wanting to keep an eye on this. Theory joins commentary, the bell rings, Finn SHOTGUNS Priest down! Finn fires off kicks, glares at Theory, then fires off on Priest. priest shoves back and knees low! Priest snarls, drags Finn up and puts him in a corner. Finn dodges to RAM his shoulder in again again, but Priest hauls him out! Finn trips Priest, Priest avoids the stomps but Finn rolls through the roll up to basement dropkick! Finn stomps away on Priest, Priest gets out of the ring. Finn aims but Priest blocks the kick!

Finn holds ropes, so Priest sweeps the other leg! Finn hits the apron, Priest gets in but goes back out to get Finn up. Canadian rack, Crucifix, RAZOR’S EDGE onto the desk! Theory applauds and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Finn fires off, only to run into a COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO! Finn survives but Priest snarls. Priest waits for Finn to sit up and he KICKS! And KICKS! Priest KICKS Finn more and more, Theory does commentary, and Priest hits a ROLLING ELBOW! Finn CHOPS, KICKS, but Priest BELL CLAPS! Priest runs in but Finn BOOTS him! Finn fires forearms and body shots, then whips. Priest reverses, Finn ducks and dodges, but runs into a choke grip! But Finn wheelbarrows to a DOUBLE STOMP! Finn runs in to SLINGBLADE! Fans fire up as Finn aims again, SHOT- ROUNDHOUSE from Priest!

Priest brings Finn up, scoops, Graves kisses up to Theory, but Finn ELBOW DROP DDTs! Priest gets up, into the SHOTGUN! Finn hurries up the corner, but Theory gets off commentary to distract! The ref reprimands, Theory backs off, and Priest clamps onto Finn’s neck! But Finn GAMANGIRIS him away! Finn hops down to SHOTGUN Theory out of his chair! Fans fire up seeing that, but Finn returns to a scoop and dragon sleeper! THE RECKONING! Cover, Priest wins!

Winner: Damian Priest, by pinfall

Theory took the hit for Priest and now Priest gets a big win over the US Champion! And Theory again gets Finn up for an A T L! Theory takes another victory selfie, but will Finn get his revenge on the cocky upstarts?

 

Backstage interview with Seth Rollins.

Kevin Patrick says Kevin Owens has a plan, but does Rollins have any developments? Or is he still not part of WrestleMania? Rollins glares at Kevin and Kevin leaves. Is there a plan in the Architect’s mind? Or is he too consumed with rage?

 

Omos VS Commander Azeez w/ Apollo Crews!

It’s like a kaiju battle in real life! Will the colossal Omos still be dominant going up against the Pride of Nigeria’s number one soldier? Or has he finally met his match?

Raw returns as Apollo and Azeez make their entrance. The bell rings and the two look each other over. Then they tie up! They’re in a deadlock, but Omos manages to power Azeez back. Azeez turns it around, Omos turns it back, but Azeez puts Omos in the corner. Omos turns it around again and they go along ropes. Omos powers Azeez back to center but Azeez knees low. Azeez runs, but Omos runs him over! Azeez tumbles tot he apron, gets up, but Omos clotheslines him out! Apollo gets on the apron to distract and Azeez gets back up to HOTSHOT Omos! Azeez gets in to fire off hands, and he ROCKS Omos!

Azeez RAMS Omos in the corner, runs side to side and SPLASHES! Azeez kicks low, reels Omos in, but OMOS suplexes Azeez!! Fans fire up as Omos gets Azeez with both hands, MOUNTAINTOP SLAM!! Cover, Omos wins!

Winner: Omos, by pinfall

Apollo is in shock, but Omos drags him up by his head! And CHOKE SLAMS him down! Omos dominates two men in one go, will anyone stop this juggernaut?

 

Kevin Owens finds Seth Rollins backstage.

Kevin snaps Rollins out of his funk and says he knows things are tough. But those tough times don’t last, tough guys do. Kevin knows Rollins can get on WrestleMania. He just has to focus his energy somewhere, like Kevin did! Kevin is going there by just thinking up something. Rollins is the Visionary, Kevin isn’t, so let’s get a vision! Think back to past WrestleMania moments. Triple H, Brock Lesnar, the Money in the Bank cash-in, losing to Kevin. Okay, don’t think about that one. But they created a moment together so they can do it again. They’re best friends, and Rollins is creative. They can build something and-

Rollins stops Kevin there. Rollins smiles and laughs because he has an idea! Kevin takes partial credit for this, but just what did he inspire Rollins to come up with?

 

Liv Morgan w/ Rhea Ripley VS Queen Zelina Vega w/ Carmella!

The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships match grew into a Triple Threat, and that means a 33.33% of winning! But will Liv show the Queen of the Ring that a crown don’t mean a thing? Or will Vega prove she has the advantage going into WrestleMania?

Raw returns as Vega & Mella make their entrance. The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Vega throws Liv down but Liv kips up. Vega kicks low, straitjackets the arms and turns Liv for a NECKBREAKER! Vega holds the straitjacket for the CHANCERY! Liv endures, fans rally as Vega bridges, but then Vega drops to turn it into a straitjacket stretch! Liv continues to endure, Rhea rallies the fans, but Vega SLAMS Liv down. Vega soaks up the heat, bumps Liv off buckles, and then JUMP KICKS! Liv falls, Vega runs, and Vega KNEES Liv down! Cover, TWO! Mella isn’t worried as Vega has the legs.

But Liv kicks Vega away, Vega dodges, but Liv sunset flips! TWO! ROLLING CRADLE! They go around and around, back to the sunset, TWO! But now we go the other way! Liv has the sunset again, TWO! Liv and Vega are a little dizzy but Liv kicks, KICKS and DROPKICKS! Vega ends up in a corner, fans fire up but Mella distracts Liv. Liv swipes at Mella, Vega POWERBOMBS Liv! Mella applauds her own handiwork, but Rhea storms over. Fans fire up as Rhea warns Mella, and then starts chasing her! Mella leaps onto Graves for protection! Vega asks what the heck is going on out there, but then she focuses on Liv.

Vega runs, Liv gets around, OBLIVION! Cover, Liv wins!

Winner: Liv Morgan, by pinfall

Graves reassures Mella that this isn’t a big deal, but Vega glares over at her teammate. Is it all crumbling down for the Queen and the Most Beautiful Woman in the WWE?

 

Seth Rollins heads to the ring!

The Visionary doesn’t wait for the others to leave, he’s that excited for his WrestleMania idea! What is it that has him so happy? We’ll find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Rollins has the mic and a big smile on his face. “Ladies and gentlemen, I have a plan to get myself to Wrestle~ Mania~!” With less than three weeks to go, he thought all hope was lost. After losing out on the Raw Tag Team Championships, he thought all hope was lost! But then his best friend, Kevin, reminded him who he is! He IS a visionary, he IS a revolution, he is Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins! And he has a plan! But he wants his best friend to be here to party in Jacksonville! C’mon out, Kevin! Kevin makes his way back out and fans boo. Kevin goes to the ring and gets a mic to say he can’t wait to hear this!

So is Kevin ready? Are the fans ready? No drum roll yet. Kevin has a talk show, right? The KO Show. And his guest will be Stone Cold Steve Austin! But what if… Seth Rollins had a talk show? Like Freakin’ Speakin’ or the Rollins Report! Or check this! What if HIS guest was also Stone Cold Steve Austin! What? No no no. Stone Cold is Kevin’s guest, he has a talk show, Rollins can’t just copy Kevin. That’s not a good plan. Rollins should think differently. Right, right, of course. There can’t just be another talk show. So here we go! Rollins VS Kevin, winner gets the talk show with Stone Cold! YEAH! Why didn’t Rollins think of this sooner?!

No, no, no! Kevin had the idea first, Austin is his guest, Austin is pissed at Kevin, he’s coming for Kevin, that’s how it is. Rollins needs to get his own idea. But Rollins needs this! So does Kevin! What is Rollins doing this for? Sonya Deville walks out and she admits, she likes Rollins’ idea. What?! Sonya is going to give them time to get ready, because the main event will be Kevin VS Rollins! And yes, the winner gets to host the talk show with Austin? WHY!? Kevin is furious but Rollins is excited! Will Kevin have to give his best friend a stunner to keep things as planned?

 

The Mysterios VS The Hurt Business!

Rey & Dominik are back in action against Cedric Alexander & Shelton Benjamin, and hopefully The Miz will be nowhere near ringside for this one. Will the King of Lucha Libre and his son get this one fair and square? Or will PRIMED Alexander & the Gold Standard get a win even without help?

Raw returns and the Hurt Business make their entrance. But at the same time, The Miz and Logan Paul head to ringside to join commentary. The teams sort out, Dom starts with Benjamin, but Benjamin sucker punches Rey at the bell! Dom fires off on Benjamin, whips but Benjamin reverses. Dom ducks and dodges to RANA! Benjamin gets up, Dom runs in to wheelbarrow and throw Benjamin to the ropes! But Alexander tags in as Dom dials it up. Benjamin puts Dom on the apron, Dom ROCKS Benjamin but Alexander CLOBBERS Dom! Dom hits apron hard and Alexander is all fired up!

Alexander puts Dom in the ring, covers, TWO! Alexander keeps Dom down with a rear bearhug. Dom endures while Miz and Logan discuss the disagreement over Cleveland’s WrestleMania worthiness. But they both laugh at Jacksonville. Fans rally for Dom as he fights up. Dom reaches out but Alexander knees him in the side. Alexander CLUBS Dom down, pushes him around, brings him up, and ROCKS him with a forearm. Alexander talks trash, brings Dom up, Dom throws body shots back! Dom JAWBREAKERS, dodges and NECKBREAKERS! Fans fire up as both men are down, and Dom crawls to hot tag Rey!

Rey dodges Alexander, heascissors him and KICKS his leg. Rey whips, Alexander reverses but Rey slides under! Alexander gets a waistlock, drags Rey up but Rey bucks him off. Rey hits Benjamin, elbows Alexander, then QUEBRADAS to TORNADO DDT! Cover, Benjamin breaks it in time! Rey ENZIGURIS Benjamin onto ropes, but Alexander knees Rey low! Alexander gets Rey up but Rey RANAS Alexander into Benjamin! Dom tags in, DOUBLE 619! Rey LEAPS onto Benjamin and Dom goes up! FROG SPLASH onto Alexander! Cover, The Mysterios win!

Winners: The Mysterios, by pinfall

Dom and Rey regroup but here come Miz and Logan! Miz goes right after Dom and Logan rains down on Rey! Miz has Logan get Rey up and Logan talks trash. Rey hits back but Logan CLUBS Rey, then feeds him to Miz! But Rey BOOTS Logan and wheelbarrows Miz out of the ring! Logan sees he’s surrounded by Mysterios, so he swings on Dom! Dom feeds him to Rey’s KICK! Dom DROPKICKS Logan onto ropes, but Miz saves him from the 619! Rey dares them to get back in here, but the “Most Must-See Tag Team” says they’re doing this on their time! Will Miz and Logan have to face the music when it’s finally them against the Mysterios in a fair fight?

 

The newest 2022 Hall of Fame inductee is announced!

It is Queen Sharmell! Wife to Booker T, aka KING BOOKAH, now joins him in the HOF. Long live the royal couple of the WWE!

 

Edge is here!

And he has a new theme! “You think you know me? Hahaha, you never did.” But he’s keeping that eerie purple spotlight from last week as he makes his way out to the ring. Edge gets the mic while Jacksonville boos. “Let’s bring you all up to speed, shall we? I am the benchmark of the WWE. For the last two weeks, my synapses have been firing at such a rapid degree that it took me time to decipher the code of what I’ve actually become. That’s above all your capability of understanding, you’re simple. That’s not your fault so I’ll grant you mercy. I’ll put this in terms you can understand: I am better than everyone.”

Edge is better than all the fans here but that’s a given. Edge is also better than everyone, every single superstar in this entire industry. But since Edge came back two years ago, he hasn’t shown that aptitude. The Edge that came back, intent in pleasing and appeasing the fans, was WEAK! Edge realized, the fans don’t matter! In trying to please them, he took his eyes of the prize, allowing Randy Orton to tear Edge’s triceps from the bone! Allowing Seth Rollins to cost Edge the Universal Championship, walk into his home and piss all over his territory! Allowing the Aquaman cosplayer, Roman Reigns, a man who can’t lace Edge’s boots, to stack and pin Edge at WrestleMania.

And if that Edge faced Styles at Mania, then Styles would leave that Edge in the dust. “But that Edge… That Edge is dead, baby! Because now, I sit perched on my mountain of omnipotence, looking down on everyone.” Edge will not be judged by fans! Or by anyone in the locker room, and certainly not by AJ Styles! Edge will pass the verdicts around here from now on. He would apologize if he cared, but he doesn’t! So AJ, if, and that is a big if. IF AJ Styles makes it to WrestleMania, and we see two generational talents face each other for the first time ever… Edge soaks in the moment while fans chant, “You Still Suck!”

Edge hears them chant at him but he just looks to the WrestleMania sign. “Then, AJ… You will be judged.” The Rated R Superstar drops the mic and laughs as he has become something far worse. Will Edge prove he is greater than phenomenal at the most stupendous WrestleMania of all time?

 

Backstage interview with Bianca Belair.

Sarah points out that Becky Lynch continues to assert Bianca’s hair is an unfair advantage in their matches. How does Bianca respond? It is both an advantage and disadvantage. It can whip sense into Becky, but that was after Becky wrapped the hair around the ropes. Bianca takes the good with the bad, that is part of her identity. And that right there is the weapon Becky is really afraid of. The way Bianca sees things, the real advantage is… Do you hear that? That’s the sounds of Becky NOT running her mouth. Raw has been so peaceful after Bianca got Becky in the throat and stopped her from flapping her lips all the time.

So tonight, Bianca is going to use this to her advantage. She’ll focus on her opponent, and use Doudrop to give Becky a preview of what’s to come at WrestleMania. And if Becky is speechless now, just wait until the EST of the WWE shuts her up for good at WrESTleMania.

Bianca Belair VS “Doudrop” Piper Niven w/ Nikki A.S.H!

The EST and Doudrop have battled a few times before, and Bianca continues to have the advantage in the win-loss record. But will having the Almost SuperHero in her corner give Piper a new advantage over Bianca?

Raw returns and Piper makes her entrance, accompanied by Nikki. The bell rings, Piper and Bianca approach and Piper kicks low to then CLUB away on Bianca. Piper bumps Bianca off buckles, stomps her, but then runs into buckles! Bianca ROCKS Piper, slingshots in and rams Piper. Piper stays up to run Bianca over! But Bianca kips up and dropkicks back! And then Bianca whips Piper, but Piper reverse. Bianca goes up and over and then eggs Piper on. Piper and Bianca circle, things speed up, and Bianca hurdles! Piper fakes out the drop kick, but misses the senton! Bianca handsprings, and MOONSAULTS!

Bianca kips up again and fans cheer as she swings her hair around, Bianca wants to torture rack but Piper fights that off. Piper HEADBUTTS Bianca and Bianca falls out of the ring. Piper goes out and runs in around the way, but Bianca hurdles her! Bianca leaps, but into Piper’s arms! Bianca slips off the scoop to RAM Piper into the apron! Piper SHOVES Bianca into barriers! Then CANONBALLS but misses as Bianca moves! Both women are down on the outside as Raw goes to break!

Raw returns again and Bianca fights up out of the cobra clutch. But Piper uses that to ripcord and MICHINOKU DRIVER! Cover, TWO! Piper is frustrated but she goes corner to corner to CANNONBALL into buckles! Bianca fires off on Piper with forearms, then she gets around to dropkick Piper to a corner! Bianca runs in to RAM into Piper! And again, and again! The ref counts, Bianca lets off to whip but Piper reveres. Bianca goes up, tells Piper to kiss this, then she jumps over Piper to spin her and reel her in! Piper is too much to suplex, but she suplexes back! Bianca slips free, goes to a corner and she BOOTS Piper away!

Piper snarls and runs in, but Bianca hits her with a SPINEBUSTER! Fans fire up, Bianca grabs at Piper. Bianca uses the corner to help with the torture rack! KISS OF DEATH! Cover, Bianca wins!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall

Nikki A.S.H. shakes her head, but Jacksonville is fired up for Bianca! But then BECKY is here! She drags Bianca out of the ring by the hair! Becky RAMS Bianca into steel steps, and is still seething as she SMACKS Bianca off the desk! Becky gets a chair from the timekeeper’s area, and she sits it up by Bianca. Becky SMACKS Bianca off the seat! And then she puts Bianca through the chair, and uses the hair to whip Bianca into the POST! Now Bianca’s clutching her neck! Becky says next week, it’s the hair’s turn! The Man, dressed in gold, swaggers out after having crushed the EST. Will she make sure Bianca never even makes it to WrestleMania?

 

RKBRO heads to the ring!

The Raw Tag Team Champions head to the ring, because it’s time to celebrate! How will these two party in Jacksonville? We’ll find out, after the break.

Raw returns and we see that the red carpet is out, as well as green balloons. Riddle feels he’s in a time vortex cuz he keeps replaying last week over and over again in his mind. Randy, we did it, bro! We’re going to WrestleMania!” Riddle is right, RKBRO is going to Mania! Now earlier today, Orton was doing some math. It turns out that 2022 is going to be the 18th appearance of Orton at Mania. But he thinks the 18th is going to be the sweetest, because he has never been tag team champion going in. He’s never had a real tag team partner, a friend! Riddle has had Orton’s back since day one and never doubted their success!

They are successful, so Orton thanks Riddle for that. They hug! Now, last time they won, they threw a party. So of course, this time, Orton is returning the favor. Popcorn and soda? Hmm. Orton admits, party planning isn’t his thing. But trying is what counts. Riddle says this is the greatest night of his career. He’s dead serious! Orton’s the coolest. And he even got the balloons. Riddle’s birthday is in 10 months but that’s the Viper’s wisdom. Did Orton get this from Truly Treasures in Jacksonville? Actually, Orton got this from the concession stand in the back. Orton knows Riddle so well! He loves that stuff!

And wow, bubblegum! They both love gum, they’re going to share those. The last give is also something they’re going to share. What is this? Is this…? Yes, Orton searched high and low to find it. But wait, here come the Street Profits! Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford walk out and say they came all the way to DUUUUUVAL~ to official congratulate the NEW W, W, E, Raw, Tag, Team, Champions, R K BRO! R K BRO! Yeaaaah~! Riddle didn’t know Orton invited the Profits. This is gonna be the party of the century! Like that Broga party but- Ford says this isn’t for the party. This is about business.

Profits pinned RKBRO in the ring a few weeks back. So seeing as how RKBRO are the tag team champions, the Profits figured they should officially challenge them to the most stupendous WrestleMania in history! Whoa, whoa, hold on. Do you even know what RKBRO had to do to get these titles back? What they had to even earn the rematch? They had to jump over every hurdle, through every hoop. The Profits can’t just win one match and expect to be next. RKBRO had to win a spelling bee! So thanks for coming, have some popcorn, but the answer is no. Okay, bros? Dawkins says when it comes to the titles, they ain’t bros.

And Orton, Ford isn’t sure if you misunderstood. RKBRO owes the Profits a match. They’re way past asking. They’re telling RKBRO that they’re facing them at WrestleMania. Orton says not once since he first stepped in this ring has anyone told Orton what to do. The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, even Vincent Kennedy McMahon hasn’t told Orton what to do when he is in this ring! And the Profits aren’t, either. So here’s some advice, homies. Turn around and leave, or Orton will listen to those voices in his head and make them leave! Riddle keeps the peace, and he says the Profits make a good point. And they gotta face somebody, right?

Orton isn’t sure but Riddle says this is the right thing to do. RKBRO argue it out, the Profits wait, and the champs come back. Orton says they’re lucky his boy here is cool. As far as that challenge for the titles go, “We accept.” Ford says they appreciate Riddle talking sense into Orton. The next time they’re in DUUUUVAL~, the Profits will show them how to throw a party that ain’t so much… ass. Riddle gets upset here. Don’t disrespect Orton! He worked long and hard for this! Riddle thought they were cool. But why wait for Mania? Dawkins says okay, if Riddle wants a match with Ford, then he’s got it! The Profits are up-

Oh, no, they don’t end like that! They end with the three most dangerous letters in sports entertainment: R K BRO! The Bro is fired up to take on one of his bros, will this only tear them all apart on the Road to WrestleMania?

Matt Riddle w/ Randy Orton VS Montez Ford w/ Angelo Dawkins!

Raw returns and the bell rings on this one! Ford is fired up as he circles with Riddle and they tie up. Riddle puts Ford in a corner, Ford turns it around but Riddle turns it back. They end up in another corner, Riddle gets a leg, but the ref has him let go. The two go again, Ford stomps Riddle’s foot! Ford headlocks, Riddle powers out but Ford runs Riddle over! Ford STANIDNG MOONSAULTS, into a TRIANGLE HOLD! Ford kicks and flails and pushes to a cover, TWO! Ford headlocks again, Riddle powers out but Ford goes up and over in the corner to CLAW Riddle’s back! Ford’s fighting nasty tonight and Riddle wants to know what the heck!

Ford runs in, but into a gut wrench and SLAM! Riddle holds on and drags Ford back up, for another gut wrench suplex! Riddle then covers, TWO! Ford gets to a corner, but Riddle KICKS him! And KICKS! And KICKS! The ref counts, Riddle lets off to then fisherman! Ford fights but Riddle still PERFECT PLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO! Riddle drops a BROTON! Cover, TWO! Riddle drags Ford back up to gut wrench, but Ford rolls Riddle to then dropkick him down! Riddle gets up, Ford clotheslines him out! Ford goes up to SUPER CROSSBODY, into a waistlock! GERMAN SUPLEX, but Ford lands on his feet!

Ford then LEAPS off the steps! The flying clothesline hits and Dawkins fires up with Ford! Ford taunts Orton as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Riddle fires forearms! Ford kicks low, whips, but Riddle sunset flips! Ford rolls through to PENALTY KICK! Dawkins is fired up as Ford MOONSAULTS, then SPLASHES! Cover, TWO! Orton is relieved but Ford goes to a corner. Ford climbs, points to the Mania sign, FROM THE- NO! He bails out as Riddle moves, and he spins Ford around to PELE! Riddle runs in to forearm smash! Then side to side, forearm smash again! Ford fights the clinch, runs, but into a POWERSLAM! Just like Orton’s! Orton applauds, and Riddle now has Ford in the ropes! DRAPING DDT, bro!

Fans fire up and Riddle starts hearing voices in his head! Dawkins shouts to Ford, but Ford staggers. He still stops the RKO to ENZIGURI! Ford gets Riddle up, but Riddle slips out of the bomb! RKO!! But Otis ATTACKS Orton! And Gable attacks Dawkins! Gable POSTS Dawkins, Riddle runs at Otis but gets caught! Otis RAMS Riddle into the barriers, that’s a disqualification!

Winner: Matt Riddle, by disqualification

The Alpha Academy annihilates RKBRO, and now they focus on the Profits! DISCUS GERMAN SUPLEX om Dawkins! Gable and Otis then drag Ford into the drop zone, and Otis goes up top! VADER BOMB!! Gable MOONSAULTS! Fans boo but Gable shouts, “A THANK YEW~!” Will Gable & Otis get back into the tag title picture #ForTheAcademy?

 

WWE pays tribute to “Razor Ramon,” Scott Hall.

He proved it was good to be a Bad Guy. Hall made an instant impact in 1992 as the character, Razor Ramon. “You can’t teach somebody to be cool. And Scott Hall has always been cool.” It was finally cool to be bad. Hall would become one of the greatest WWE Intercontinental Champions, winning WWE’s first ladder match to become the undisputed Intercontinental Champion. And then of course, in WCW, Hall & Nash would add Hulk Hogan to the New World Order. “Hey, yo. Are you hear to see the nWo?” When your nWo, you’re nWo 4 life! The WWE family will forever remember Hall as a gifted entertainer, two-time Hall of Famer, a loving father, and a dear friend.

“Hard work pays off. Dreams come true. Bad times don’t last, but bad guys do.” – Scott Hall

 

Seth Rollins VS Kevin Owens!

The Visionary apparently had a creative mental block because he’s just wanting to steal the Prizefighter’s idea! Will Kevin keep WrestleMania as the KO Show? Or will Rollins take that and meeting Stone Cold away from him?

Raw returns and Kevin Patrick interviews Rollins at gorilla. Rollins is so excited! Tonight is the night! Rollins once was lost but now he is found! And y’know what Rollins learned something through this ordeal. Not only does Rollins need WrestleMania, WrestleMania needs Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins! He’s gonna punch his ticket right now! With that, Rollins makes his entrance. Will the Architect ruin things for his best friend? We’ll find out, after one more break.

Raw returns again, and Rollins is arguing with Kevin. Fans sing Rollins’ theme and that annoys Kevin more. The bell rings, Rollins and Kevin circle and feel out the grapple. Rollins rolls Kevin up, ONE! Kevin is frustrated already but Rollins is laughing it up. They go again, feel out the knuckle lock but Kevin kicks low. Rollins scrambles away from the stunner and Kevin says it was that close. Kevin says this doesn’t have to happen if Rollins could just come up with something else. This is Kevin’s spot, Rollins isn’t going to take it! But Rollins fires off hands! They brawl fast and furious and fans fire up!

Rollins powers Kevin to a corner, fires off hands, but lets off at 4. Rollins looks to the sign, but Kevin puts Rollins in the corner to CHOP and HCOP and fire off hands!

Kevin writhes, Rollins gets in the ring to build speed! DIVE, but into Kevin’s arms! FALL AWAY SLAM into barriers! Kevin drops a SENTON, then roars and gets in the ring as Raw goes to break.

Raw returns once more, and Kevin has Rollins in a HALF CRAB! Rollins endures, rolls through and kicks Kevin with the free leg! Kevin goes to a corner, Rollins hops up but Kevin BOOTS him back. Kevin goes up to get a TORNADO DDT! Then he drags Rollins up for another DDT! Cover, TWO! Rollins survives and fans rally up and duel.

Rollins ROCKS Kevin, then springboards, FLYING KNEE! Rollins drags himself up as Kevin slowly rises. Rollins keeps looking to the sign, and he throws Kevin out. Rollins DIVES! Direct hit this time and Kevin hits barriers! Rollins puts Kevin back in but Kevin slips back out! Kevin staggers by the announce desk but Rollins runs in, to DIVE! Kevin goes flying over the desk! Both men are down, the ring count is climbing and Jacksonville is fired up! Rollins stands at 6 of 10 to go in. Kevin drags himself up with the desk, and is in at 9.5! SUPERKICK! Rollins goes up top! FROG SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!!

Rollins is beside himself as Kevin survives! Rollins has Kevin in a corner and shouts, “I need this, Kevin! I need this!” Rollins CHOPS, then hoists Kevin up top! Rollins climbs up but Kevin blocks the superplex! Kevin throws body shots, shoves Rollins away, but Rollins comes right back! Only for Kevin to SUPER FISHERMAN BUSTER! Kevin crawls to the cover, TWO!! Kevin can’t believe that Rollins survives! But Kevin goes back up top, to SWANTON onto knees! Kevin writhes and rolls away while Rollins gets up. “This is Awesome!” as both men stand again. Rollins turns around, into a LARIAT!

Kevin wants Rollins to get back up! Rollins staggers into, NO! No stunner as Rollins shoves Kevin! But the ref got knocked down, too! He has to get up, TWO!! Rollins is furious! He feels he had that, but he runs in! Kevin dodges the stomp, STUNNER!! Cover, Kevin wins!

Winner: Kevin Owens, by pinfall; will host the KO Show at WrestleMania

Whether or not he wanted it more is debatable. But now it is undeniable that Stone Cold Steve Austin is going to be Kevin’s guest on the Grandest Stage of Them All. Rollins is stunned to say the least. Will he not have a WrestleMania moment after all?


My Thoughts:

A pretty good Raw in the wake of incredibly sad news. WWE put together a good tribute to Scott Hall, and he will be missed by all. And there were a great number of tribute references to him tonight, such as Kevin’s “Hey yo” when he started his promo, and how he paraphrased Hall’s HOF quote for Rollins. Priest had his own tribute with his entrance and with literally using a Razor’s Edge on Finn. I figured Priest was going to find a way to win that. This wasn’t a “Championship Contender’s match” but duh, they’re steering us towards Finn VS Priest. Theory keeps getting his shots in on Finn, too, mostly to get Heel Heat but it’s almost like Vince is using him to add on to Finn’s misery. Maybe all this goes together to give us Demon Balor at Mania.

Omos winning is great, but what a disservice to Azeez. That should’ve been way more than a squash. Yeah, it was awesome Omos suplexed Azeez but there should’ve been a bit more. Omos is nearing a level similar to Lesnar and Roman where it’s like no one normal can even touch them. I’ve said this last time but how is Omos supposed to be something more when he’s cleared out so many? We got a decent match out of Liv and Vega, but the better part was scaring Mella into using Graves as a shield, and for Vega to lose and be mad at Mella. Whether it’s Rhea & Liv or Sasha & Naomi, those titles are definitely going to another team, and maybe Vega will turn on Mella.

Good to see Nikki and Piper are sticking together, just as I was hoping. Nikki didn’t play much of a role, though, but I guess that’s the point. They’re Heels who see themselves as the heroes, so she let Piper face Bianca on her own. It went about the way all the other times Piper and Bianca went 1v1, but then Becky stands tall with a surprise return. That gold outfit was cool, and Becky beats Bianca down pretty savagely with that chair around the neck. Becky saying she’s going after the hair almost makes me wonder if we’d get a Hair VS Title match to spice things up. Probably not but who knows what’s coming next.

Mysterios VS Hurt Business was a good rematch from last week, but of course Miz and Logan Paul were going to attack again. The math is evening out with the Mysterios running them off, but Miz and Logan will surely keep trying. Edge had a pretty good promo this week, and that new theme song is fittingly also by Alter Bridge. It’s all working together for this new Heel persona of his. I wonder if he changes up how he wrestles, or even what his finishers are. We got a pretty good “celebration” segment for RKBRO, and I figured the Profits would show up. Their Mania match is definitely happening, and we got a great match out of Riddle VS Ford tonight. The Academy attacking was also a good twist, I sense another Triple Threat Tag.

Rollins and Kevin had great segments together tonight, and it was hilariously disappointing that Rollins couldn’t come up with some other idea than to copy Kevin’s. Hosting a talk show was probably the strangest prize for a match that I’ve heard of, but the match itself was great stuff. The desperation was strong from both guys, but naturally Kevin wins. Kevin and Austin is what makes sense given the use of the stunner. And Raw being in Jacksonville, all the talk of Cody Rhodes possibly returning, I was hoping for that, too. Cody and Rollins would make for an interesting dynamic given their current characters.

I thought we were going to hear a Cody theme song hit as we got that last shot of Rollins, but nope. Maybe they still bring Cody in next week, but it would’ve been way more fun to do it here in Jacksonville, given the last three years of AEW being based in Jacksonville. But maybe in Vince’s mind, that’s why they wouldn’t. He reluctantly gives fans things, so he wasn’t about to give fans what they want where Cody would get the best reaction.

My Score: 8.3/10

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO!

Six Man Tag: The Bang Bang Gang VS London Lightning, Shaun Moore & Michael Allen Richard Clark!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns are here, and these #CollisionCowboys are looking to keep up their momentum as AEW heads for Wembley. Will the Unified World Trios Champions be more than ready to go All In?

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?

 

AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

Roddy shifts it into a CAMEL CLUTCH!

Collision returns and Roddy pushes Castle to a cover, TWO! Castle is still in this but Roddy tells him to stay down. Roddy tells fans to shut up, and he kicks Castle around. Castle goes to ropes, Roddy drags him up, and then CHOPS! Castle staggers, Roddy scuffs him, and then Roddy storms up. Castle blocks a kick to reel Roddy in for a BIG back suplex! The fans fire up as Castle roars! Castle rises, Roddy runs up, but Castle blocks a punch to DECK him! And DECK him again! And again! Roddy goes to a corner, Castle runs in to JUMP KNEE! And LARIAT! And JULIE NEWMAR BULLDOG! Cover, TWO!

Castle is annoyed but he CLUBS away on Roddy with elbows, then KNEES Roddy in the side. Castle waistlocks, but Roddy pries the hold open. Roddy ELBOWS Castle, swings, but into an EXPLODER SUPLEX! The fans fire up and Roddy rises. But Castle just hits him with another EXPLODER! And then Castle waistlocks, but Roddy grabs the corner! The ref counts, Castle lets go at 4, but then he JUMP KNEES again! The fans fire up and The Outrunners say one more! Castle goes corner to corner but Roddy dodges!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender tot he ROH World Championship)

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”

 

Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Ava. The two tie up, Nyla waistlocks but Ava fires elbows. Ava is free, she fires more shots, then winds up to ROCK Nyla!

Nyla fires up, reels Ava back in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

Ring rust is not a thing with Nyla Rose, and she barely broke a sweat here. Will The Native Beast make ever women’s champion in AEW and ROH her prey?

 

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

The teams sort out and Angel Dorado starts against #TAIGASTYLE. They circle, tie up, and Lee wrenches to a wristlock. Lee HEADBUTTS the hand, but Dante flips and wrenches back.

Dante scuffs Ogogo, tags Darius, and Darius drops a leg. Cover, ONE! Darius keeps on Ogogo, bumps him off buckles, and the ref has Darius back up. Darius run sin but Ogogo puts him on the apron. Darius ROCKS Ogogo, fights off Lee, but Ogogo reels Darius in through the ropes!

The ref counts, Ogogo lets Darius go, and Lee KICKS Darius down! The fans boo but Ogogo drags Darius up. Ogogo wrenches, CLUBS Darius, and Shane likes what he sees as Ogogo wrenches again. Ogogo puts Darius in a corner while Collision goes picture in picture.

Ogogo HEADBUTTS Darius, HEADBUTTS again, then brings Darius out to scoop and SLAM! Cover, TWO! Ogogo is annoyed but he drags Darius up.

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots. Skye ROCKS Harley again, but Harley ducks ‘n’ dodge! DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both! The fans fire up and Cassidy puts Bennett in. Cassidy goes up top, Bennett gets under the jump. Bennett headlocks, Cassidy powers up and out, but Bennett runs him over. Cassidy UP KICKS, Bennett comes back to headlock. Cassidy powers out, ducks down then hurdles.

Taven apologizes and says he still doesn’t wanna fight. But then he pokes Kyle in the eyes! Taven says that is why he doesn’t wanna do this. But Cassidy runs in to tilt-o-whirl. Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS! Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

Bennett stays between Cassidy and Kyle, mocks the hands in pockets, then stomps Cassidy. Roddy is having fun now as Bennett whips Cassidy to ropes. Bennett ELBOWS Cassidy down, covers, TWO! Bennett clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Cassidy down. Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, then fires body shots. Bennett ROCKS Cassidy, tags Taven, and The Kingdom mugs Cassidy as Collision returns to single picture. But then Cassidy starts fighting back! The fans fire up as but Taven knees low. The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then whips him to ropes. POP-UP BAYONET! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

BEACH BREAK for Bennett! Cover, TWO!! Bennett survives and Roddy can’t take it! Roddy hurries to ringside but Cassidy tags Kyle. Cassidy and Kyle watch Bennett get up, but Roddy shouts at “KYYYLE~!”

Roddy tells Kyle he can’t do this to their friends! Kyle says Roddy needs to just back off. The ref tells Roddy to stop, but here’s Ishii!! Ishii YANKS Roddy down, he fires off hands! The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10

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! Roddy bails out, the fans fire up for Ben, and The Kingdom coaches Roddy up. Roddy runs in, dodges Ben, and kicks at the legs! Ben drops to size so Roddy and CHOP! CHOP! And CHOP!

Roddy kicks the legs, fires boxing elbows, then ELBOWS Ben before he runs and SICK KICKS! Then he hits an OLYMPIC SLAM! The fans fire up with Roddy and the Kingdom, then the STRONG KNEE knocks Ben down! Cover, Roddy wins!

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.

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite 250!

On top of the opening match being Ospreay VS MJF for the International Championship, as well as Swerve VS Okada in a Champion VS Champion showdown, Mercedes Mone has issued an Open Challenge to the TBS Championship! Well, mostly open, as she is EXCLUDING Britt Baker! The DMD won’t be happy about this, but who will step up to The CEO?

 

Fatal 4 Way: Rey Fenix VS Komander VS Angelico VS AR Fox!

This is going to be a fast ‘n’ furious match starring men capable of fantastic feats both in the air and on the mat! And with there still being time before All In, who uses this night as a launching pad towards a title opportunity?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. The four circle, and then Fenix and Komander stare down. They nod and shake hands, and they go after Fox and Angelico!

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
