Raw Tag Team Championships Triple Threat: The Alpha Academy VS RKBRO VS Seth Rollins & Kevin Owens!

Chad Gable & Otis tried to deny Randy Orton & Matt Riddle this opportunity through the Alpha Academy Academic Challenge, but failed. And then the Visionary and Prizefighter got in just on their star power! Will Gable & Otis be able to win even though their odds drastic go down?

Before the match, Rollins and Kevin get the mics. “Hello, Cleveland and welcome to Monday Night Rollins! Oh yeah, oh yeah, and I am fired up!” Rollins and Kevin are just moments away from becoming the NEW Raw Tag Team Champions~! Kevin says it seems like almost every week, they’re always this close to securing a spot at WrestleMania but then something got in the way. Day One, Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber, over and over, the deck has been stacked against them! But tonight, their luck finally changes! They’re taking the tag titles and going to WrestleMania, BABY!

They were this close, and imagine what WrestleMania would be like without Kevin and Rollins? NO WAY! Kevin can’t imagine it, won’t imagine it, can’t believe it. But he also can’t believe that once they win the tag titles, they go to Mania and compete in the dump known as Dallas, Texas! But y’know what? It is a sacrifice they have to make. The only thing that makes it bearable is that Kevin will be there with his best friend, Seth Freakin’ Rollins! That’s right, baby! Dreams do come true! And Rollins wants to take a trip down memory lane. Let’s see how we got here! It was that they took RKBRO down in a tag match!

That was two weeks ago! What was even better was last week when they did the same to The Alpha Academy! Two weeks in a row for this team, over the #1 contenders and the champions, c’mon! You watch that, it is undeniable that momentum is on their side! Kevin and Rollins are undeniable! Just like how it’s undeniable that tonight, they punch their tickets to WrestleMania and that Dallas sucks! And just like how Shorty G & Otis suck! And that RKBRO suck! “SHOOOOSH! Shoosh please.” Here come the champions! That win last week was erroneous! And for the dummies in Cleveland, that means it was a joke! A fluke!

Gable says he was still reeling from the Stunner in that little talk show. Gable is an Olympian and he has a Master’s Degree! That alone means if anyone should go to WrestleMania, it’s Master Gable! And his number one guy, OTIS! Look at that face! So tonight, we finish this crap! The Academy waltz onto the Grandest Stage of Them All to defend their titles! A THANK YEW~! But RKBRO is fired up backstage. Kevin Patrick asks them about those strong words, any last words from them? Riddle has a pretty good vocabulary, and tonight will be tubular. But when the gears get going, Riddle thinks tonight is the most important night in their entire tag career!

Riddle won’t let their stupendous journey end. Hey Randy, do you got any big words, bro? Does Orton have big words? Well, let’s see… Here’s one big word! That word is WIN! Win by any means necessary! they’ve come too far and worked too hard to not go out there and kick everyone’s ass to take those titles back!! Riddle is fired up and RKBRO heads out! Will the Stallion & Viper make good on those big words? We’ll see, after the break!

But Riddle tosses Rollins! Cover, RKBRO WINS!!

Winners: RKBRO, by pinfall (NEW Raw Tag Team Champions)

Talk about outta nowhere! Orton and Riddle get that massive win, and neither Kevin or Rollins can believe it! Does this mean WrestleMania will be without the Prizefighter and the Visionary?

Kevin Patrick interviews the NEW champions, and asks what this win means to them. This means that they’re going to WrestleMania, bro! Orton says he has been doing this for more than 20 years now and he’s never had this much fun as he is with his teammate, Riddle! Orton means that from the bottom of his heart, and he’ll say the F word. Not a word he’s said in 20 years. Riddle is Orton’s FRIEND, and he wouldn’t be out here other than him! Truth be told, he doesn’t have any other friends. But they’re going to Mania, ladies and gentlemen! But RKBRO knows they’ll have to defend these belts, so who will step up to challenge them?

 

Kevin sits alone backstage.

Kevin is seething, because he can’t put anything he’s feeling into words. Where is Rollins right now? Are these two no longer friends after the dream’s been crushed?

 

WWE 24/7 Championship: Dana Brooke w/ Reggie VS Tamina w/ Akira Tozawa!

Cleveland’s own Flex Appeal is ready to defend her title! Well, she’s always ready because it’s the 24/7 Championship, but will she be able to hold onto it when she can’t run away? Or will the Daughter of Superfly get some gold on the Road to WrestleMania?

Raw returns and Tamina makes her entrance, accompanied by Tozawa. Despite their kiss last week, Tamina still hasn’t softened up towards him. The introductions are made, the belt is raised and Tamina finally has a fair shot at the gold!

Tamina and Dana rush each other and Tamina CLOBBERS Dana! Tamina hammers away on Dana, lets off as they end up in the ropes, and Tamina taunts Dana. Tamina TOSSES Dana, but Dana dodges in the corner! Cleveland cheers for their hometown girl as she hits a handspring back elbow! But Tamina comes back to CLOBBER Dana! Tozawa cheers Tamina on as she stomps Dana and then gets the legs for a BOSTON CRAB! Dana endures, reaches out, and Reggie rallies the fans for Dana! Dana crawls but Tamina drags her away and sits deep! Dana continues to endures, powers up and turns it around to a cover! Dana wins!

Winner: Dana Brooke, by pinfall (still WWE 24/7 Champion)

Reggie plays defense but Tozawa says Dana cheated! The winner should be “the love of my life,” Tamina! Tozawa offers up a comforting hug, but Tamina puts his arms down. Tamina walks past Tozawa, but then stops at the ropes. She looks back at Tozawa and fans chant, “KISS HIM! KISS HIM!”Tamina blows a kiss to Tozawa and he smiles. Tozawa follows after Tamina, will this oddest of odd couples find a way to take that title from Dana?

 

Seth Rollins looks off into the distance.

Kevin Patrick asks him about the loss tonight. Rollins doesn’t respond. Kevin Patrick knows this must be devastating, does he have a comment? Still nothing. If anything, Rollins is getting angry. Kevin Patrick hurries away before things boil over, will Rollins and Kevin regroup and figure this out?

 

The Miz heads to the ring!

The Hollywood A-Lister is here in his hometown, and he’s holding a homecoming with his WrestleMania tag partner, Logan Paul! And let’s not forget their legendary guest, the King of Cleveland, Jerry Lawler! Will this be must-see TV? We’ll see, after the break.

Raw returns and Miz has the mic to say, “Cleveland… I’m home!” Fans cheer for that, and then chant for Miz! “You hear that? That is respect!” Fans cheer and chant, “Miz is Awesome!” but Miz says Cleveland is awesome! And Miz says that last week, we saw the Mysterios learning what it’s like to eat Skull Crushing Finales! Because of what the Mysterios said about him and his tag team partner. Did you hear that disrespect from Dominik towards two hometown boys? Miz introduces the millionaire mogul who will help him defeat the Mysterios, LOGAN PAUL! Logan makes his way out, Miz dances to the theme, and fans boo.

Logan joins Miz in the ring and gets a mic to say, “What’s up, CLEEEEEVELAAND? It is good to be home!” Logan is honored to be Miz’s tag partner at WrestleMania, and to be back home! But it sounds like everyone knows he grew up here. West Lake High, represent! Logan was a high school wrestler, fifth in the state, and he’s got nothing but respect for his city. Cleveland made Logan into the man he is today! Miz says Logan doesn’t need to be modest. Logan made himself. Cleveland didn’t get him a hit YouTube channel. If Miz followed his dad’s footsteps, he’d be flipping burgers at Mr. Hero.

But Dom’s dad got him a WWE contract before he was ready. Now don’t get Miz wrong, Rey is a legend. And being the first-ever father-son tag team champions is incredible. Rey has earned the right to be beloved. But hasn’t Miz earned it? Miz has done everything Rey has, but he is booed. Not here, though, because Cleveland gets Miz. The Mysterios have only beat Miz cheating. Who would you rather see? A father-son tag team losers? Or the pair of future pop icons standing before you? Logan says Rey is a legend, and Dom is just riding the coattails. But that’s not what Cleveland does. Cleveland steps up, steps out, and KICKS ASS!

Miz says someone else who shares that point of view is their next guest. Get out of your seats for this legend born and raised here in Cleveland, the WWE Hall of Famer, JERRY “THE KING” LAWLER! Fans cheer to see Lawler with his crown and Browns jersey. Lawler joins Miz and Logan and shakes their hands. Lawler then gets a mic as fans chant for “JERRY! JERRY!” Lawler says he can’t begin to tell you how awesome that is. Miz, Logan, you guys have history here, but Lawler goes way back. Anyone heard about Lorain, Ohio? Or perhaps Vermillion, Ohio? But Lawler was in Amherst, Ohio for about 8 years, too.

Lawler says he wore this jersey tonight because he was in Cleveland in 1964 when they won the NFL Championship! So exciting to be here for Miz’s homecoming. And Lawler just realized, he’s looking at Miz beneath the WrestleMania sign, and thinking, “How would it be if WrestleMania was right here in Cleveland?” Fans love that idea! What does Miz think? Logan says that’s an awesome idea! Miz asks, “Really?” He isn’t so sure. But Miz was just singing the city’s praises! Yes, Miz loves the city of Cleveland, but it isn’t really a WrestleMania city.

Don’t boo him for that! Let’s be real! The pyro alone would be too much for this city. The only pyro this city can afford is when the lake catches on fire! And Miz doesn’t even live here anymore. No one really lives here. Once you get an ounce of success, you leave! Like when the Browns went to Baltimore to become the Ravens, and the Ravens won the Super Bowl! And then Odell Beckham Jr did the same! LeBron James won a title and left. The same reason Cleveland will never host a Super Bowl is the same reason they won’t host a WrestleMania. It’s time for Miz and Logan to go to Mania, defeat the Mysterios, because winners leave Cleveland! Buh-bye!

Miz goes to the ropes and Logan does follow, but Logan seems a little confused by Miz’s attitude. Miz tells Logan all about the logic, but will Logan see things his way?

 

Backstage interview with Tommaso Ciampa and Bron Breakker.

The Psycho Killer and NXT Champion are here, and this is Bron’s first night on Raw. Bron’s still taking it all in, he is excited if you can’t tell. Now, on NXT Roadblock, they’re going to face off against each other and with Dolph Ziggler over the title. But tonight, they will team up again against the Dirty Dawgs. Any concerns over Ziggler & Roode having homefield advantage? Bron says this is a dream come true! He is so grateful to be here on Raw representing NXT and making the most out of this to get at Ziggler and that “goon,” Roode.

Ciampa says Ziggler talks a big game and has earned that right given he’s held almost every title possible. Except for the NXT title. But Ciampa & Bron beat the Dawgs before, they’ll do it again here on Raw. The NXT stars head out, will they give a repeat performance from just last Tuesday?

 

The Street Profits are backstage.

But Sarah asks them about the “most stupendous” WrestleMania being less than four weeks away, and as of right now, much like Rollins, Kevin and the Alpha Academy, there isn’t a clear spot on the card for them. Sarah, they thought they were closer than that. But four weeks is time enough to sprinkle some magic to make their way to Mania. Let us remind everyone, last week, ya bois, the Profits, pinned the NEW Raw Tag Team Champions, RKBRO! So if anyone is first in line for a shot, it’s ya bois, the Street Profits! YESSIR! Besides, Otis & Gable are at the back of the line, hit the books, get a crash course on pyramid schemes. Otis, Gable’s stealin’ your money.

Seth and Kevin are moping like they’re rich kids who got cut off from a trust fund. “I need money, honey!” So if anyone is next, Sarah, it’s the Profits! In fact, anything in the future involving Raw Tag Team gold, it better have the Profits’ name on it! Tell ’em why, Dawks! “Because the Street Profits are up, and WE WANT THE SMOKE!” Will Orton & Riddle have to worry about Ford & Dawkins putting pedal to the metal on the Road to WrestleMania?

 

Bron Breakker & Tommaso Ciampa VS The Dirty Dawgs!

Raw returns as Ciampa makes his entrance, followed by Bron. The teams sort out and Bron starts against Roode. They circle, tie up, and Roode headlocks. Bron powers up and powers out, then things speed up. Bron hurdles, then gets Roode for a gator roll and stalling suplex! Bron holds until 10 before the SLAM! Bron kips up and he drags Roode up. Ciampa tags in, they mug Roode, and then Ciampa puts Roode in the corner to CHOP! Ciampa whips corner to corner, Roode reverses but Ciampa stops to come back and CLOBBER Roode! Cover, TWO! Ciampa keeps Roode down with a chinlock!

Roode endures, fight sup, and he puts Ciampa in the corner. The ref counts, Ciampa counter punches Roode then elbows Ziggler! Ciampa fires hands, gets around Roode and ROLLING ELBOWS! Then he BOOTS Ziggler! But Roode hits a SPINEBUSTER! Both men are down, but Ziggler tags in. Bron avoids the sucker punch, and he gets Ciampa out to safety. Ziggler wants after them but Team NXT cools things off while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Ziggler waits on Ciampa to get up. Ziggler then dropkicks Ciampa back down! Cover, TWO! Ziggler throws a fit and Roode complains about the count. Roode tags in, the Dawgs double whip Ciampa to ropes, then they double elbow him down! Roode drops a knee, covers, TWO! Roode keeps between Ciampa and Bron and tells Bron that Ziggler’s the future champion. Roode tells Ciampa he’s in the big leagues now, but Ciampa JUMP KNEES Roode down! Both men are down and they crawl for their corners. Hot tags to Ziggler and Bron! Bron rallies on Ziggler with big shoulders, DECKS Roode, then CLOBBERS Ziggler!

Bron shoves Ziggler to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Then he CLOBBES Roode! Bron drags Ziggler up, but Ziggler kicks low! Ziggler whips, Bron catches him for a SPINEBUSTER! The straps come down and Bron aims from the corner. Bron runs in, into a KNEE! Ziggler staggers and Bron CLOBBERS him in return! Bron steadies himself, drags Ziggler up, and trophy lifts! Roode gets in so Bron runs him off first. Ziggler rolls Bron, TWO!! Bron runs in but only gets POST! ZIGZAG!! Cover, Ciampa breaks it! Roode gets in but Ciampa throws him out and KNEES him down! Ciampa gets to the corner and calls to Bron.

Ziggler slaps sense into himself, but Bron blocks the superkick! Bron trophy lifts Ziggler to BREAKKER SLAM! Cover, Bron & Ciampa win!

Winners: Tommaso Ciampa & Bron Breakker, by pinfall

Ciampa helps Bron up and hands him the belt. But while they won together, Ziggler gets the mic to tell Born got one over on the Dirty Dawgs. Ziggler loves how theses two worked together so well. But tomorrow, on NXT, there is a Triple Threat for the title! And the second that Bron turns his back on Ziggler to look at Ciampa, that is when Ziggler strikes! And that is when Ziggler becomes NEW NXT Champion while Bron will be stuck with his whole world crumbling around him! Ziggler will be there in all his glory with one more trophy for his big ass case! See you tomorrow, kids! The Show-Off just had to get the last word in, but who has the last laugh?

 

Backstage interview with Omos.

His in-ring interview was last year at WrestleMania. Since then, he has been dominant, but is he worried that he won’t have a place on the show this year? “How many victims do I have to dominate to get my WrestleMania moment, huh? I have annihilated everyone for one reason. I am not waiting for my WrestleMania moment, I am taking it! Even if I have to punish and dominate every single superstar until there’s none left!!” Omos storms out to the ring, will he leave the WWE with no choice but to put him on the Most Stupendous WrestleMania ever?

Omos VS Apollo Crews w/ Commander Azeez!

Raw returns and Apollo makes his entrance. The bell rings and Apollo steps up to Omos. Omos says after he beats Apollo, Azeez is next. But Apollo dropkicks him! And fires off hands! Omos shoves Apollo away then BOOTS him down! Omos roars and then circles around Apollo. Omos clamps both hands on Apollo’s shoulders, then gets both arms for a motorcycle stretch! That’s one big motorcycle! Apollo endures, but Omos lets him go. Apollo gets away while Omos stares Azeez down. Omos goes to drag Apollo up from the apron, and he DECKS Apollo to the floor! Azeez wants to go help Apollo but Omos is that scary.

The ring count is climbing, but Omos goes out to fetch Apollo. Omos puts Apollo in the ring, gets back in, and then TOSSES Apollo to a corner! Omos roars and runs in, but Apollo dodges! Omos hits buckles, Apollo ENZIGURIS! Apollo gets up, leaps, but into Omos’ hands! MOUNTAINTOP SLAM!! Cover, Omos wins!

Winner: Omos, by pinfall

The dominance continues! He towers over Apollo, then he sees Azeez get in. Omos did promise to make Azeez next… Azeez is almost as massive, but Omos smirks and leaves. Will Omos make Azeez look like any other man when the time comes for them to face off?

 

EDGE is here!

He stands under a single spotlight, in a suit, and walks down the ramp as everything is bathed in an eerie light. The Rated R Superstar dared someone to step up, and AJ Styles did just that. However, in trying to bring out the Phenomenal Pitbull, Edge ended up bringing out the monster inside himself. Edge takes his time getting a mic while fans boo and jeer. The spotlight returns to cast its eerie light on Edge, and then he speaks. “You think you know me? Clearly you don’t, AJ. And I know that you’re at home right now, so I’m going to speak directly to you. But put the kiddos to bed. Mama probably doesn’t wanna see this, either.”

Edge says what he did to Styles last week, he did for Styles! Edge did that to help Styles. Styles wants to face Edge at WrestleMania, so Edge needs the best AJ Styles. Edge needs that flesh-tearing Pitbull AJ Styles. And Edge helped Styles. Ironically, it also helped Edge, too. It was like Edge’s brain cracked open and finally let out the real Edge to fly again. “And it felt so good. It was a me that I’ve never met before, it is a me that I have fallen in love with!” Fans boo because they sure don’t like this new Edge. Edge says he finally feels in control in the ring, of everything that’ll ever happen in the ring, and that’ll ever happen in the industry!

Edge continues to say that he is standing on the mountain of omnipotence, and the view is phenomenal. Edge then drops the mic and stares right into the camera. He might even be staring right into AJ Styles’ soul. But will Styles even be able to make it back to face down this new, darker Edge?

 

Kevin paces backstage.

Kevin Patrick asks him about the loss in the Triple Threat Tag. They no longer have a path, so what is going on in KO’s mind? KO looks at KP and says he isn’t as distraught as Rollins because that feeling Kevin had at the end of the match when they lost, he never wants to feel that again. But Kevin won’t have to. Y’know why? He just had an epiphany. Do you know what an epiphany is? It’s when you have an idea so brilliant, no one else can have it. Kevin has an idea, and that idea will change his entire Mania future. Will he share that idea? No, not yet. Kevin has to iron out the details, but he has a plan. Kevin will share that plan later tonight. What was the Prizefighter’s WrestleMania epiphany?

 

Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan VS Carmella & Queen Zelina Vega!

Even though SmackDown’s Sasha Banks & Naomi have their WrestleMania match with the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, the Nightmare and the Living End might get one of their own! Will Rhea & Liv make a brand new winning combination and join everyone at WrestleMania? Or will the Most Beautiful Woman in the WWE and the Queen of the Ring not fall into the same trap as Alpha Academy?

Raw returns and the Women’s Tag Team Champions make their entrance. Mella gets her mask on before she starts with Liv. They tie up, Mella powers Liv to a corner by pulling hair. The ref counts, Mella lets off and knees low. Mella whips Liv but Liv reverses and runs in to back body block! Liv slaps Mella around, brings her over and tags in Rhea. Liv hits an STO, Rhea hits a basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! Rhea smirks at Vega and drags Mella up. Mella swings but Rhea spins her and cravats for knee strikes! Rhea knees Mella down but she scrambles away to tag Vega! Rhea swings, Vega dodges and DECKS Liv! But then Rhea kicks low!

Rhea reels Vega in, suplexes, and holds her up! Mella gets in but Rhea BOOTS her down! Vega kicks free of the suplex but Rhea keeps her from the corner! Vega dodges to tilt-o-whirl and DDT! Tag to Mella and she aims at Rhea, FABULOUS KICK and Rhea ends up hitting steel steps! Mella celebrates with Corey Graves while Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Vega has Rhea in a MUTA LOCK! Rhea fights free of the leglock but Vega shifts to have a straitjacket stretch! Rhea still endures, so Vega SLAMS Rhea down! Vega bumps Rhea off buckles, JUMP KICKS, then tags Mella! Mella BOOTS Rhea into the post! Cover, Liv breaks it! Mella is frustrated but she dribbles Rhea off the mat! Mella clamps on a chinlock and grinds Rhea down while stretching her back. Rhea endures again and Liv rallies the fans. Rhea fights up, throws body shots, then scoops Mella, only for Mella to slip out and hit an EDGE-O-MATIC! Mella taunts Liv, but Rhea gets up to KICK Mella down!

Rhea and Mella are both down and fans fire up! Rhea crawls, as does Mella, hot tags to Vega and Liv! Liv dodges then ENZIGURIS Vega! Vega goes to ropes, Liv dropkicks her down! Liv then runs in to SHINING WIZARD! Snapmare and Liv goes up and up to missile dropkick! Cover, TWO! Liv drags Vega up but Vega JAWBREAKERS! Liv dodges the lariat with a Matrix bridge and she rolls Vega up! TWO, and Vega DECKS Liv! But Mella isn’t there to tag, she’s being comforted by Corey! Vega shouts to Mella but Liv waistlocks! Vega bucks the O’Conner Roll, but runs into a CODE BREAKER!

Liv tags Rhea in and Rhea storms right up to Vega! Pump handle and RIPTIDE! Cover, Rhea & Liv are in!

Winners: Rhea Ripley & Liv Morgan, by pinfall (joining the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship match)

Another Triple Threat for tag titles is happening! Mella is upset, but maybe she needs to focus less on her looks and more on her matches! Will we be guaranteed to see new champions on the Grandest Stage of Them All?

 

Vader is being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame!

The late great Mastodon redefined what it was to be a big man in wrestling, and what it was to be a wrestler in the world of entertainment! He joins Undertaker in this year’s class, what other big names will join them?

 

Finn Balor VS Austin Theory!

The Prince is the NEW WWE United States Champion after defeating Damian Priest, but he’s lucky to be standing after Priest lost his cool. At the same time, Finn has a chance to get back at Vince McMahon’s protégé for everything that went down between them. Will Finn make the Road to WrestleMania rrrrreeeeal? Or will he have to “expect the unexpected” all over again?

Raw returns and Theory makes his entrance. The bell rings and Finn fires off on Theory! The ref counts, Finn lets off, then he headlocks and grinds Theory down. Theory powers out and runs Finn over, then talks trash. Theory stomps Finn, Theory bumps Finn off buckles, then RAMS his shoulder in! The ref counts, Theory snapmares Finn and stomps him down again! Cover, TWO! Theory clamps on a chinlock and digs a knee in. Finn endures, fights up, pries the hold open but Theory knees low. Theory ROCKS Finn with a forearm, then puts him against ropes to CLUB him in the back. Theory talks trash because he’s going to Mania!

Theory CLUBS Finn again, then whips. Finn reverses but Theory sunset flips, only for Finn to roll through and basement dropkick! Finn KICKS Theory, but Theory gets out to avoid the stomp! Theory bumps Finn off the apron, then fireman’s carries. He talks too much trash, Finn slips off to SLINGBLADE! Theory writhes while Finn gets in the ring and Raw goes to break.

Raw returns again and Theory whips Finn corner to corner, Finn reverses but runs into a drop toehold and hits buckles! Theory then slingshot SHOTGUN dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Theory clamps on a chinlock and grinds Finn down. Finn fights up as fans rally, and Theory knees low. Theory puts Finn in a corner but Finn BOOTS back!

Winner: Finn Balor, by disqualification

Damian Priest ruins things for Theory but he just wants Finn for himself! Priest reels Finn in, Canadian rack and RAZOR’S EDGE! Fans boo but Priest no longer cares what they think. Will the Archer of Infamy be aiming for the US title at WrestleMania? As for Theory he gets Finn up to hit the A T L! And now he takes the victory selfie. Will Theory’s ego explode if he wins at the most stupendous WrestleMania ever?

 

Backstage interview with Bianca Belair.

Kevin Patrick asks The EST if she’ll be using that hair of hers as a weapon at WrestleMania. Bianca says she has one simple rule for her opponents: do not touch the hair! She doesn’t need to use her hair to win, though. She and Becky Lynch are WrestleMania main eventers, they should do it with respect. But since Becky wants to use the hair against Bianca, she got what she deserved. And that scar may last forever, but what won’t last forever is Becky’s title reign. Bianca is going to put the EST back in WrestleMania and walk out NEW Raw Women’s Champion.

 

Kevin Owens heads to the ring!

He promised to share his plan for WrestleMania, so he’s heading back out to do just that. But just what was this most stupendous epiphany? We find out, after the break.

Raw returns and Kevin has a mic. “Okay, so uh, it’s official. I don’t have a match at WrestleMania. But y’know what? I can accept that now because I think I found a way to get there, and it depends on the answer to the challenge I’m about to issue. I want to have the biggest, most stupendous KO Show in history, and I want to do it at WrestleMania. And I’ve been thinking about who my guest could be, and obviously because of where WrestleMania is being held, I know it has to be some lowlife from Texas.

“And there’s a few people that fit the bill, right? I could invite, uh, oh! I could invited that blowhard bag of wind, JBL! But let’s be honest, the horns on the hood of his limo would make a more interesting guest. So JBL, no thanks. Who else? Oh, Booker T! Booker T went on social media and called me a liar, but I don’t think I’m the one lying about how I feel about Texas, because Booker, you are from Texas, yet you spent most of your career in a tag team called Harlem Heat! And then you were King Booker and you spoke in a horrible British accent! So Booker, there’s no room for hypocrites on the KO Show, so no thanks!

“And then, there’s the one and only Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels. A legend no doubt, one of the greatest of all time, and a proud Texan. But Shawn, I am a proud Canadian, and with that in mind, it would be sacrilegious to have you on the KO Show. So out of respect for Hitman Hart, you’re not invited.” Kevin says he could humiliate any of them easily, but he wants to invite someone who embodies Texas like no one else. That’s because he is a broken down shell of his former self living on former glory. Since we last saw this guy, he’s probably let himself go. He’s probably drinking beer all day and all night like the redneck he is!

Kevin says his knees are so shot, he needed knee braces just to get through his matches! And if he accepts Kevin’s invite, what will this guy need to get down the ramp? A walker? It’s a long ramp! Nothing would make Kevin happier than to beat the hell outta this guy in his home state and at WrestleMania and “give him a Stunner the world would talk about for years! And then pour a nice cold glass of milk over his lifeless body.” Kevin knows that guy is watching, and that guy doesn’t have the guts to show up. But the bottom line is… Kevin is calling out STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN!! Fans fire up to hear that one! Will the Prizefighter regret asking the Texas Rattlesnake to come back?


My Thoughts:

A pretty good Raw here, but the best stuff was at the beginning with that awesome Tag Team Triple Threat. And it was pretty great that RKBRO got these belts back, Orton had a great promo to celebrate and call Riddle his friend. The Profits had a good promo, as well, to hype up that they’re coming for those belts. As for Kevin and Rollins, I like that Kevin decided to call out Stone Cold, as we all figured would happen. Didn’t make the biggest impact as the final segment of the night, but it was still great that he went there. I’m pretty sure Austin will show up for the WrestleMania edition of the KO Show, and that he will be giving out the Stunner.

Hooray for Dana Brooke winning as WWE hardly ever has hometown heroes win. Tamina’s growing relationship with Tozawa seems to be the biggest development out of this 24/7 Championship feud, but I’m hoping we get more out of this title for WrestleMania. The “homecoming” for Miz, Logan Paul and Jerry Lawler was a good segment, and I do like that there’s this sense of conflict over how Miz doesn’t like Cleveland. It’d be really weird if Logan has a Face turn during the match with the Mysterios because Miz turns out to be the even bigger jerk. Leave it up to The Miz to actually make a story with Logan Paul interesting.

Edge had a great promo to frame this newest Heel persona and why he attacked AJ Styles so ferociously, but a great part you have to see for yourself is that lighting they were using. It made Edge look like a monster, because that’s what he’s becoming for this feud. We get a good rematch of Bron & Ciampa VS Dirty Dawgs, but much like Ciampa’s other matches on Raw, it was all an advertisement for NXT. The NXT Championship Triple Threat for “NXT: Roadblock” is going to be a really good one, but I don’t know why Vince thinks Raw needs to help NXT when Vince is the reason for NXT’s problems.

Poor Apollo Crews. It looked like he had a new lease on his WWE career, but Vince brought him over to Raw to do nothing with him. And of course he’s fed to Omos. Now, Omos VS Azeez looks interesting, but the way Azeez and Omos interacted, it just felt like Omos already squashed Azeez without even having a match. And I refer you back to last week when I said Omos already has a ceiling on him because he hasn’t taken any real bumps. And speaking of ceilings put on them, the WWE Women’s Tag Division! Tonight’s match was better than most these days since it lasted past a commercial break, but it was still quick. Rhea & Liv win and get in, I really hope we get news champs at Mania.

Finn VS Theory was a pretty good match, up until Damian Priest “ruins” it with his attack. But at the same time, Priest was going to do something like this to move towards a title rematch at WrestleMania. And then Theory adds Heel heat by picking the bones. I hope one of these weeks, Pat McAfee shows up on Raw to mess Theory up in return for Theory’s visit to SmackDown. Bianca had a good promo, and as Becky Lynch posted herself on social media, Becky’s voice box is damaged right now. Becky won’t be talking but I am sure there will be plenty of social media posts to be her promos. And she’ll be back for Mania, so Becky VS Bianca is still on and still going to be great.

My Score: 8.3/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

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?

Juice powers up and out, tags Colten, and then Colten tags Austin. Bang Bang Gang hit a body shot, KNEE LIFT, and LARIAT! Juice adds a SENTON, then Colten SPINNING SPLASHES!

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?

 

ROH World Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Dalton Castle w/ The Outrunners!

Death Before Dishonor is less than two weeks away, and Mark Briscoe needs himself a challenger!

Castle lifts Roddy but Roddy scrambles onto the ropes. Roddy ROCKS Castle, bumps him off buckles again and again, then goes up the corner.

The fans fire up and Castle puts Roddy in the ring. Castle argues with Taven, old rivalry there too. The Outrunners get in The Kingdom’s faces, and they flex on ’em! But then Roddy WRECKS Castle with a dropkick! Roddy hauls Castle up to BARRIER BACK SUPLEX!

The Kingdom gloats while the fans boo, and Roddy shouts “Who’s the man now?!” while Collision goes picture in picture.

Roddy SLAPS Castle with the foam guard, then puts him in the ring. The ref has The Kingdom and Outrunners stand down. Roddy stomps Castle, drags him up, and puts him in a corner.

Castle endures, fights up as the fans rally, and he fires body shots. Castle is free, but Roddy DROPKICKS him down! Cover, TWO! Roddy clamps onto Castle with another chinlock, but Castle endures. Roddy shifts it into a CAMEL CLUTCH!

Castle endures being bent back, pries at the grip, but then Roddy fishhooks his face! The ref reprimands, The Outrunners rally as hard as they can as Castle continues to fight, but Collision goes to break.

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! Ava runs, ducks Nyla’s lariat and wrenches, but Nyla stuffs the STO! Nyla choke grips and CHOKE SLAMS Ava! The fans fire up as Nyla storms around. Ava stands up, Nyla SPLASHES her in the corner! Then Nyla whips Ava back in, reels her in, and suplexes Ava high and hard! Nyla rolls through to deadlift and GOURD BUSTER! Ava sits up, into a SUPERKICK! 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. Lee spins to then slip through and step over, to arm-drag! Dante shakes that off while Lee mockingly applauds. Lee poses, then he and Dante circle. They feel things out, knuckle lock, and then Dante wrenches to snapmare and step over to sunset flip, TWO! Dante ghost pins, TWO! Dante rolls Lee into another ghost pin, TWO!

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!

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.

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!

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!

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 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.

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!

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
