CM Punk VS Penta Oscuro w/ Alex Abrahantes!

New Orleans goes nuts for the Best in the World as he makes his entrance! But while the fans all shout “CLOBBERING TIME!” with him, will CM Punk continue his climb up the rankings? Or will his run hit a road block at the hands of the man with no fear?

The bell rings and fans fire up as the two stare down. Fans chant for “CM PUNK!” and Punk does his best to signal C and M with his hands. But then fans start to duel, “CERO MIEDO!” “CM PUNK!” Penta and Punk throw up the hand signs, and then they go forehead to forehead. Penta wants Punk to listen but Punk shoves him first! So Penta shoves back. “Listen! CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces but Punk kicks and CHOPS! Penta CHOPS, so Punk forearms. Penta forearms, so they go back to CHOPS!

AEW shares footage from the New Orleans airport.

The Jericho Appreciation Society arrived earlier today by private jet, or at least Jericho, Jake Hager and Daniel Garcia did. Because that is how sports entertainers travel! But just as Jericho was bragging about it, Eddie Kingston and his crew pulled up! Remember, ON SIGHT! They’re going to see Jericho and his boys later tonight! The car then pulls away, to reveal Kingston, Santana & Ortiz already dealt with Matt Menard and Angelo Parker! And took their shoes! Jericho shouts to get their car, and then shouts at Kingston! Will The Influencer, Rock Hard and the Red Death make the Mad King and company pay for this?

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships: Jurassic Express w/ Christian Cage VS reDRagon!

Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus have had enough of Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish, to the point where they put aside the rankings system! But will giving the Undisputed Elite this shortcut to the titles come back to bite them? Or will Jurassic Express make reDRagon extinct?

JB & Luchasaurus got one hell of a fight from former IWGP Junior Heavyweight, ROH World and NXT Tag Team Champions, but this train is still rolling! Wait, Kyle gets a chair! He JAMS Luchasaurus in the leg, and he SMACKS JB off a corner! The Undisputed Elite are sore losers! But Kyle says, “UP YOURS!” as he and Fish fall back. But here comes FTR! The joint AAA & ROH World Tag Team Champions aren’t letting reDRagon run away! But that turns into a fight on the ramp! Referees hurry to keep this from getting any more heated, but is it only a matter of time before Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood cross reDRagon and Jurassic Express of their hit lists?

 

Backstage interview with the Blackpool Combat Club.

Tony Schiavone stands with William Regal, Jon Moxley, Bryan Danielson and Wheeler Yuta as he notes this Friday for Rampage, it will be a Trios Match! BCC VS Gunn Club! Regal says he couldn’t possibly be happier because he is surrounded by three tough gentlemen! Yes, a big match for Rampage, and Bryan says, “Why do you think we’re all fired up? Why do you think? Because Wheeler Yuta, for the first time, is fighting with us!” Yuta bled with Mox, spat in Bryan’s face, and these three are going to fight the 24-0 Gunn Club. Moxley says he doesn’t really know the Gunn Club, but he doesn’t like them. They’re a bunch of goofs! That’s what they need less of here in AEW!

Moxley says they plan on breaking the Gunn Club’s faces open. “Time to get mean, Wheeler!” Yuta himself says, “Tony, on Friday, the real work begins.” Will the ROH Pure Champion give us yet another star making performance when he, the Maniac and the American Dragon rip into Billy and his boys?

 

Backstage interview with Toni Storm and Jamie Hayter.

Tony Schiavone again meets with these two, who again agreed to no physicality this week. “The fans have spoken. We don’t know the brackets for the Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament yet, but we do know that Tony Khan has signed what the fans want to see: in the first round, Jamie Hayter VS Toni Storm.” Hayter says she is glad Tony made Toni her first opponent. Hayter wants this more than Tony Khan does, and more than the fans do. And why is that? Well, there are a lot of parallels between these two. They both honed their craft in Japan, in the UK and Europe, a lot like Owen Hart.

But Hayter says this is going to be HER crowning moment, and Toni will not stop that. Hayter will win and break Toni’s face. Toni scowls but Hayter asks, “Cat got your tongue? Just gonna walk away?” She does. Hayter says she knew Toni would do that, but will the Lightning From Down Under let her actions speak for her?

 

MJF w/ Shawn Spears VS Capt. Shawn Dean!

The last time the Salt of the Earth faced Shawn Dean, CM Punk got involved and handed the win to Dean through a GTS and disqualification. It ruined MJF’s otherwise spotless win-loss record, and now Max wants to “right the wrong.” But will MJF be too busy looking over his shoulder and around ringside for Wardlow? Or will the Captain sweep MJF before MJF even has to worry about that?

The bell rings and MJF apparently can’t unzip that fancy jacket of his. Fans chant for “WARD~LOW!” and Spears has to help MJF! Fans taunt MJF and cheer Dean on, but MJF tells them to shut up! MJF still struggles with the zipper, and Spears talks trash on Dean. Dean is distracted and MJF sucker punches him! MJF stomps away on Dean in the corner, then surprise! The zipper was never really stuck. Fans boo as MJF whips his jacket around then tosses it aside. MJF drags Dean up, whips him corner to corner and WRINGS him out at the same time! MJF then gets on the corner to soak up all the heat.

But wait! For the third week in a row, we look backstage, and security has been decimated! Wait, is one guy missing his shirt? MJF is freaking out! Is Wardlow using a security shirt to “sneak” around? MJF hurries to get Dean up and throw him out! MJF headlocks and drags Dean around the way, to then whip into railing! Fans chant, “WE WANT WARDLOW!” but MJF just puts Dean in the corner. MJF soaks up the heat, but a rather big security guard walks up. SURPRISE! It’s Wardlow! MJF thinks the cheers are for him because he’s just that arrogant, and he turns around to see Wardlow! MJF runs away but Wardlow is in pursuit!

MJF scurries into the ring, then right back out, and to the ramp! Wardlow gets to the ramp, and Spears SMACKS him with a chair! But that barely tickles the War Dog! Wardlow turns his attention on Spears, reels him in, and throws off the shirt! But real security hurries out, only to get CLOBBERED One after the other! Then the last guy gets the APRON POWERBOMB! MJF sends another wave but they’re just dominoes for Wardlow to knock down! But all of them gather around and keep Wardlow back! But wait! The ring count is still going! MJF tries to get around but the cluster is too big!

MJF shouts on the mic to have the ref wait! “I don’t know what Tony Khan is paying you, but I will triple it if you don’t count to ten! I’ll triple it!” Fans chant, “TEN! TEN! TEN!” The ref says TEN, MJF LOSES!!

Winner: Capt. Shawn Dean, by count-out

Another win over MJF and Dean celebrates! Wardlow goes peacefully now, having done far more damage to MJF than he could have with his own hands. MJF storms into the ring to get at the ref! The ref gets in MJF’s face back! Spears keeps MJF back, this could be a fine! Meanwhile, Wardlow gets rough with the security now so he can shout right into the camera! “MAX! I’M NOT GONNA STOP! NOT UNTIL I GET MY HANDS ON YOU! AND YOU RELEASE ME FROM MY CONTRACT!” The message has been sent, but how will MJF respond?

 

AEW hears from Darby Allin.

The Relentless One has sent another video in. A casket frame in the middle of an intersection. Darby skateboards downhill towards it. Darby then drags his board, and he says, “Andrade. I’m going to put a nail in this whole thing. Coffin Match.” Enough said, will El Idolo face some grave consequences in this war with Darby?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Tell me, Fuego. But your hopes and dreams… Are they still the same? As what they were when you were a child? There in lies the main difference between you and I. Say if we were to uh… Cut open my neck, and push our hands through the wound, and rip open my throat, you would find a dark abyss of razor blades.” Maybe one day, Fuego will appreciate this. But he appreciates hollow things, like a fanbase that loves and adores and thanks Fuego, because the House wanted it so. What the House gives, the House can take. And they will take the brightest light and drag it down into the deepest part of Fuego’s soul and kill it.

If you wonder why Malakai is here alone tonight, he wants Fuego to fear the shadows. Will the Fire of the Sun be extinguished in the bottomless pit that is Malakai’s soul?

 

Six Man Tag: The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz!

The JAS was warned that this grudge would be on sight, and they got just a taste of it at the airport. Will things only be more brutal with them going 3v3 in the ring? Or will Jericho, Hager & Garcia “future endeavor” the Proud ‘n’ Powerful trio for good this time?

Ortiz shows off that he has Parker’s shoes! The teams sort out and Santana starts against Jericho, and Jericho just flips everyone else off, especially Santana. Then he tries to step, but Santana isn’t intimidated. He just SMACKS Jericho, then puts him in the corner to fire off more hands! Santana climbs up and fans fire up as Santana rains down rights! Santana goes all the way to 10, then whips Jericho corner to corner. Santana runs in but Jericho BOOTS him! Jericho runs in, but into a BOOT! Santana whips Jericho to ropes but Jericho reverses. Santana stops and KICKS, but Jericho CHOPS!

Santana CHOPS, Jericho CHOPS, it’s a CHOP fight! Santana gets the edge with CHOP after CHOP after CHOP! Fans fire up but Jericho throws a haymaker! Jericho shoves but Santana tackles Jericho! The teams then drop off the corners, Ortiz SHOTGUNS Hager and Kingston CLOBBERS Garcia! Kingston rains down fists, Ortiz keeps on Hager but Hager knees and whips Ortiz into barriers! Kingston digs fingers into Garcia’s face, Jericho bails out but Santana pursues. Hager chokes Kingston to get him away from Garcia, and Jericho goes into the ring. Santana dodges the cheap shot to CLOBBER Jericho with an elbow!

Santana looms over Jericho, sits him up, and rains down more fists! Fans fire up as Kingston BITES Hager! Santana drags Jericho up and Kingston gets in. They put Jericho in the corner, Ortiz tags in and Ortiz whips Santana in for a back elbow! Ortiz hits a SPLASH, then PNP feed Jericho to an STO from Kingston!

Kingston goes back after Garcia but Jericho CLOBBERS Ortiz! Jericho tags Hager, they double whip Ortiz and FLAPJACK him! Hager digs a knee into Ortiz and talks trash.

Hager lets off but Ortiz gets up to throw hands. Hager DECKS Ortiz, but fans rally up. Ortiz dropkicks a leg, CHOPS then forearms and CHOPS again! Ortiz runs but into a lift! Ortiz manages to sunset flip, TWO! Hager CLOBBERS Ortiz! Hager hauls Ortiz up, tags in Garcia, and then SPINEBUSTER and some ground ‘n’ pound! Fans boo as Garcia roars, but Garcia tags Jericho in. Ortiz fights back but the JAS mugs him. Jericho back suplexes Ortiz, then has the cocky cover, TWO! Fans boo but Jericho soaks up the heat, only for Kingston to shove him! The ref has Kingston stand down and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Jericho shouts at Kingston but then Ortiz DECKS Garcia! Ortiz goes after Hager again but Hager ROCKS him with a right. Jericho fires off on Ortiz now, then digs his knee in. The ref counts, Hager tags in, and Ortiz BITES Jericho! Hager RAMS into Ortiz, digs his shoulder in, then RAMS in again! Hager lets off but that allows Garcia and Jericho to get cheap shots in! Kingston protests but the ref is now busy with him! The JAS get away with it, and Hager scoops Ortiz to SLAM him! Hager looms over Ortiz, then runs to the corner, HAGER BOMB! Cover, Santana breaks it! Hager goes after Santana for that, but almost hits the ref!

The ref gets right in Hager’s face, but Garcia gets his shots in! Jericho tags in and has everything clam down a bit. Jericho CLUBS Ortiz, argues with the ref, but Ortiz crawls to his corner! Jericho sees it in time to elbow Ortiz down! Jericho brings Ortiz up to CHOP him to another corner. Jericho CHOPS and CHOPS then hoists Ortiz up top. Jericho throws hands, soaks up some heat, then climbs up after Ortiz. Ortiz BITES Jericho again! The ref reprimands, but Ortiz shoves Jericho down! Ortiz adjusts up top, leaps, and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO!! Jericho escapes and he CLOBBERS Ortiz!

Jericho throws down hands, but Ortiz starts to get up. Jericho keeps throwing hands, and Ortiz staggers to ropes. Dynamite returns to single picture as Ortiz throws hands! Ortiz runs, into a dropkick! Jericho taunts Santana and Kingston, runs, LIONSAULT FLOPS as Ortiz moves! Fans rally up, Ortiz crawls, but Jericho grabs a foot! Ortiz gets up to break free but Jericho ROCKS him! Jericho whips but Ortiz comes back to CLOBBER Jericho! Fans are thunderous as the two crawl, hot tag to Garcia and he CLOBBERS Ortiz!

Kingston then powers up, but Garcia ducks the Uraken to shove Kingston!

Garcia distracts the ref as Jericho uses FLOYD THE BASEBALL BAT!! Kingston falls from that shot, Garcia covers, JAS wins!

Winners: The Jericho Appreciation Society, by pinfall

And of course, they all mug Kingston now! The 5v3 advantage is just too much, and Jericho is hitting Kingston with the bat! Hager returns, they drag Ortiz in and feed him to a JUDAS EFFECT! They stomp Santana while fans boo, and the JAS stand tall! That may not have been entertainment, but will this be a lesson in the numbers game for Kingston and his team?

 

Backstage interview with MJF, Shawn Spears & Mark Sterling.

Alex Marvez can’t help but chuckle as he says, “Another upset win,” and MJF gets mad. Is that funny? Does Marvez think it funny?! How about the fans?! “YES! YES!” MJF shouts, “Maybe people have forgotten just who the hell MJF is! I am the prodigy, I am the phenom! I’m the pinnacle of professional wrestling!” But it’s so funny, right? No sympathy for the devil, but he doesn’t need it. He has MONEY. And that is what makes the world go ’round. Tell ’em, Mark! Sterling reads the contract between MJF and Wardlow, and says MJF has the unfettered right to book or not book Wardlow against anyone he wishes.

MJF then makes Marvez hold the mic in front of him as he says, “That means no more just showing up to the arena to have a good time, Pig. Nah. See, I’m gonna put you to work! And I have the BEST idea on how to slaughter a greedy little pig like you.” Spears hands MJF an envelope, and then Andrade’s assistant, Jose, steps into frame! The answer: A BUTCHER! The AFO’s Butcher steps in and roars at the camera! Will he chop Wardlow down into bacon bits?

 

Marina Shafir VS Skye Blue!

Before facing the undefeated TBS Champion, Jade Cargill, #TheProblem finally has a match on Dynamite! Will the US Open Judo National Champion be seeing red as she takes on Blue before going for gold?

The bell rings and the two circle. Sterling and Jade are watching backstage. Well, Sterling is watching and taking notes on his clipboard, Jade is scrolling through her phone, probably more interested in what her baddies post on social media. Speaking of, the baddies section is full tonight, they’re paying more attention to this than Jade. Shafir kicks Skye low, throws her with a sayanagi, and then looms over her menacing. Wait, Kiera Hogan and Red Velvet are also in the audience watching this, they are cheering on Skye Blue as they’re friends and training partners. But Shafir scoops Skye and just carries her around.

Shafir pops Skye up, but Skye slips out and runs in to get a GUILLOTINE! Shafir isn’t even worried, through, as she turns this into a BEARHUG, and then SWINGING SLAM! Shafir again stands over Skye menacingly, trying to send her aggression through the screen and right at Jade. Jade actually looks up right as Shafir says, “Shame, shame,” with her fingers. Jade rolls her eyes, but Shafir says she should watch this. Shafir drags Skye up, CLUBS her down, then brings her up to DECK her! Skye gets to ropes and drags herself up as the baddies all boo. Skye throws forearms and haymakers! But then Shafir KICKS, pump handles, and FALL AWAY SLAMS!

Shafir glares at the baddies as they boo, but if anything, it amuses Shafir. She eggs them on, but Skye chicken wings! Shafir breaks free, waistlocks, but Skye gets ropes. Skye drops down for a cover, TWO! Shafir blocks the kick, PALM STRIKES the chest, then fisherman roll to a leg capture TRIANGLE!! Skye taps, Shafir wins!

Winner: Marina Shafir, by submission

Shafir makes Skye wave hi to her friends, and then goes out to blow a kiss to everyone. Jade brushes this off, but is this one Problem not even an undefeated baddie can solve?

 

Lexi Nair interviews Hook.

For the third time in as many events, Lexi tries to get Hook to talk. Next week, in Pittsburgh, it will be Hook’s first match on Dynamite. How is he feeling? But even before he opens his mouth, Sterling walks in with his newest client, Tony Nese. Sterling says of course they’re interviewing Hook. But why not the hottest free agent signing in the Premier Athlete? Nese tells Sterling that AEW doesn’t want to hear from someone who actually earned their success, but from someone who was handed it. Hook stands up and Sterling wants him to calm down. This was just about an interview.

Nese & Sterling leave, and surprise! Danhausen is here! Is it working yet? Hook just throws the medicine ball at him. Danhausen catches it but falls over. Will anything ever faze Hook? Will anything ever get him to talk?

 

AEW hears from Dan Lambert & The Men of the Year.

Ethan Page starts by saying Sammy Guevara threatened them with, “Wait ’til you see what we do next.” Turns out, all that was next was crawling to management and begging for a TNT Championship match! And it’ll be in the only place in America that Sammy and his future ex-girlfriend won’t get booed out of the building in! Lambert says that might not be true. “Turns out, the most obnoxious couple in the history of AEW are still right here.” But what happened to the Mixed Tag they wanted so badly? Guess maybe it’ll be another Saturday night where she goes unsatisfied.

Scorpio says Sammy desecrated their car, the title, and their names, and he still didn’t get what he wanted. But now, Scorpio will give Sammy the ass-kicking he needs. And the only thing bigger in Texas than that will be Scorpio’s win streak. Sammy and Scorpio are going to be part of Battle of the Belts II, but will Sammy get the belts back, and some revenge, too?

 

Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland VS Team Taz!

Ever since AEW became Limitless in Swerve’s House, Ricky Starks & Will Hobbs have been absolute bullies! But Keith & Swerve don’t run from bullies, then run over ’em! Will the #AbsolutePowerhouses have no choice but to #BaskinTHEIRGlory?

The teams sort out and we start with Starks and Swerve. Fans rally and sing for Keith, but Starks then tags out to Hobbs. Swerve and Hobbs circle, they tie up, and Hobbs shoves Swerve away.

Swerve endures and fights up, and he ROCKS Hobbs with a right! Swerve slips under but Hobbs catches him to whip at the corner. Swerve uses that to elbow Starks down! Hobbs hurries over but Swerve BOOTS him away. Swerve then dumps Hobbs out in return for earlier!

ANOTHER match has been made for Battle of the Belts II!

The ROH World Championship will make its AEW debut as The Octopus, Jonathan Gresham, defends against The Peacock, Dalton Castle! This golden week just keeps getting bigger, who will come out of it holding onto the titles?

 

Backstage interview with Thunder Rosa.

Tony Schiavone speaks with the AEW Women’s World Champion about her BOTB II main event title match. La Mera Mera is so excited, but she is again interrupted by the Vicious Vixens. Vickie Guerrero & Nyla Rose have brought a cake. Nyla says it was supposed to have writing on it, but that costs extra, and frankly, Rosa ain’t worth it. But they want to let everyone know they’re celebrating Rosa having AEW’s shortest world title reign! Rosa plays along with the sarcasm, saying they’re both so sweet for this. Vickie, Nyla, do you think she’s stupid? Yes, they do! Well then ESTUPIDA! Rosa shoves the cake into Nyla’s face!

Vickie is furious and tells Nyla to get Rosa! But with all that frosting in Nyla’s face, she DECKS Vickie! Then Rosa CLUBS away on Nyla! But Nyla kicks her back and RAMS her into road cases! And again! Referees rush over to stop this, and Nyla says, “Joke’s on you! I love cake! And violence!” The Native Beast just gave Rosa an appetizer, but will Nyla sink her teeth back into the AEW Women’s World title?

 

AEW hears from Hangman Adam Page, and Adam Cole.

The Panama City Playboy tells the Cowboy, “You have some preconceived notion that I’m afraid of this match-up.” Cole ain’t scared of sh*t! But Hangman says, “The best lessons in life are lived, not preached.” Cole is scared of how he will feel waking up the next morning, thinking he didn’t do all he could have to become THE AEW World Champion. Because that feeling of disappointment at Revolution, when he couldn’t beat Hangman, to go back to his hotel room and say to himself, “Dammit, you’re the best!” Hangman says this Friday Night Rampage, Texas Deathmatch, he will rip Cole limb from limb, knock his teeth down his throat and make him swallow his own blood!

Cole says he can’t wait to go home this time and say, “That’s right, the AEW World Champion is here, baybay.” Adam VS Adam II raises things to a whole new level, but who will be the Adam that survives?

 

ROH World Television Championship: Minoru Suzuki VS Samoa Joe!

The Meanest Man in the World defeated Rhett Titus and took this title at Supercard of Honor 2022. But now, the ROH Hall of Famer has come to take that title for his own! Will the Samoan Submission Machine make the King of Pancrase bow down? Or will Suzuki prove why he is universally respected and feared in this ring?

Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt are watching ringside, sarcastically chanting for Joe. Bobby Cruise makes the introductions, “KAZE NI NARE!” and the belt is raised as we perhaps have the most violent normal match ever!

Joe offers a handshake but Suzuki just gets in Joe’s face. Fans are fired up and Suzuki CHOPS! Joe CHOPS, Suzuki CHOPS, repeat! CHOP after CHOP after CHOP and fans are loving this as both men’s chests are turning red already! Suzuki eggs Joe on, the CHOPS keep going! Joe then throws forearms so Suzuki gives those back! Suzuki laughs and fans fire up, so Joe CHOPS again! Suzuki CHOPS back! Joe throws another CHOP, so Suzuki CHOPS again! Joe CHOPS, Suzuki nods and CHOPS again! Joe roars and CHOPS, Suzuki roars and CHOPS! This is like Suzuki taking on Hiromu in the New Japan Cup, just beefier!

Joe CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Suzuki isn’t budging! Suzuki revels in it, if anything! And the fans are reveling in it, too! Suzuki CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS! So Joe CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! And CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Suzuki still stays up, and he shakes his head. “This is Awesome!” and it’s been all CHOP after CHOP! Suzuki just keeps throwing those overhand CHOPS, but Joe comes back with CHOPS of his own! They finally go back to forearms and Suzuki staggers! But Suzuki forearms back, they go back and forth, Joe elbows but Suzuki ROCKS him! Joe ROCKS Suzuki back!

Fans fire up as these two just stare down. Suzuki ROCKS Joe with a forearm but Joe gives it right back! Suzuki smiles again, and he ROCKS Joe. Joe smiles and he ROCKS Suzuki! Suzuki gets the edge with forearm after forearm, and Joe wobbles! Suzuki runs, but Joe runs him over! Fans are thunderous as someone finally falls over! Suzuki gets to the apron, Joe drags him up, but Suzuki gets a HANGING ARMBAR! The ref counts, Suzuki lets go at 4. Suzuki drags Joe out as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Suzuki throws another forearm and he follows Joe along the way. Suzuki throws a forearm, Joe hits back! Joe CHOPS, Suzuki CHOPS, we’re back to the CHOP fight! Suzuki eggs Joe on so Joe CHOPS again. Suzuki CHOPS, Joe CHOPS, again and again! Joe CHOPS and Suzuki has to step back, but he comes right back. They tell the ref to be patient, but then tell each other to get in. So they both do, and the forearms start flying again! Joe gets the edge, runs, but Suzuki catches him for a takedown! Suzuki wants and gets the FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Suzuki even bends the fingers! Joe endures, but Suzuki omoplatas that arm!

Suzuki reaches out and gets Joe’s other arm to pull it back! Suzuki pulls back as hard as he can but Joe still endures! Joe moves around, ROPEBREAK! Suzuki lets go at 4, and he kicks Joe around. Suzuki KICKS Joe in the chest, throws more forearms, then wrenches the bad arm to dig an elbow into the shoulder. Joe endures, even as Suzuki has a standing crossface! Suzuki lets off to throw a haymaker, but Joe just HEADBUTTS! So Suzuki HEADBUTTS! Joe HEADBUTTS again and again and again! Then he reels Suzuki in for a POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO, but into the STF!! Now Suzuki endures!

Dynamite returns to single picture once again as Joe focuses on the crossface! Suzuki endures as Joe cranks him back, so Joe shifts to have RINGS OF SATURN! Suzuki endures, fans rally, and Suzuki reaches out with a leg for the ROPEBREAK! Joe lets go, has Suzuki in a corner and JABS! Joe whips corner to corner but Suzuki reverses and BOOTS Joe down! Suzuki drags Joe up, snapmares and runs to PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO! Suzuki grins and fans fire up again. Suzuki drags Joe up, but Joe breaks free! They clinch, throw more forearms, and Suzuki reels Joe in. Fans fire up, but Suzuki knows already the piledriver won’t work.

Suzuki shoves Joe, and he dares Joe to keep throwing those chops! So Joe CHOPS! Suzuki CHOPS, Joe CHOPS, repeat! Both men are red across the chest, fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but this has to end! Joe CHOPS and CHOPS, but then Suzuki gets around, SLEEPER HOLD! But Joe scoops to SIDEWALK SLAM! Fans are thunderous again, Lethal and Sonjay continue to cheer Joe on. Joe CHOPS Suzuki against the ropes. forearms him, then CHOPS again, Joe runs, into a DROPKICK! Fans fire up with Suzuki and he roars! Suzuki wraps on the SLEEPER HOLD! Joe is already purple, and Suzuki tries it this time!

But Joe fights the Gotch lift, so Suzuki KNES Joe in the corner. Suzuki goes for the sleeper but Joe RAMS him into the buckle! Joe puts Suzuki up top, and GAMANGIRIS! Suzuki wobbles, Joe reels him in, but Suzuki gets him for a HANGING TRIANGLE! Joe resists the extension, drags Suzuki in and fires more forearms! Joe gets Suzuki up, MUSCLE BUSTER!! Cover, Joe wins!!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by pinfall (NEW ROH World Television Champion)

Former ROH World Heavyweight Champion, former ROH Pure Champion, and now finally, ROH World Television Champion! But to “celebrate” with him, Sonjay says congrats to Joe! Lethal says that just like they promised, they’ve brought a very special surprise present that they know Joe will love. Drum roll please. And tada! A middle finger. And then lights go out?! Seems the surprise present was a two-parter! The lights come back up, and a GIGANTIC man has appeared in the ring! Wait, that’s SATNAM SINGH! The NBA’s first Indian born Sikh basketball player, is now ALL ELITE!

Singh CLOBBERS Joe, pushes him out of the ring, and both Lethal and Sonjay mug Joe! Singh then whips Joe into the steel steps! The 7’2″ Singh puts Joe in for Lethal, and Lethal takes off his jacket. But Joe CHOKES Lethal! Singh gets in to SQUEEZE Joe’s head! Joe gets mugged again as fans boo! Joe passes out from Singh’s double claws! Then Singh stands Joe up, just for the LETHAL INJECTION! Lethal picks up the ROH World TV title to place on Joe, and then Sonjay puts a towel over Joe like he’s dead! Will Joe’s reign end before it even begins?


My Thoughts:

An awesome AEW Dynamite right here. Punk gets to be in another great opener, and Penta really gave him a great match. I was a little worried about Punk’s knee but I suppose that’s just Punk playing it up like the pro he is. Punk wins to be poised as #1 contender to whoever wins this Friday. Cole and Hangman had a very good promo vignette to hype up the Texas Deathmatch, and that is going to be awesome. I’m sticking with Hangman winning but he and Cole are definitely both gonna bleed. We got a great AEW World Tag title match, too, but I had a feeling Jurassic Express was gonna win. FTR showing up to confront reDRagon was good stuff, and I would love if FTR challenges Jurassic Express, ALL the belts on the line!

Good stuff from Blackpool Combat Club, they’re going to have a great Six Man against Gunn Club, and Gunn Club is not gonna know what hit them. Good stuff from Hook and Nese and Danhausen, Hook is going to have a great match on Dynamite next week, and you can bet Hook will also be facing Nese soon enough. Pretty good promo from Lambert, Ethan & Scorpio, and for once, I gotta agree: what happened to the Mixed Tag plans? Though, at the same time, I think we should be looking at Paige VanZant not being pro-wrestling ready in time. But maybe, win or lose between Sammy and Scorpio, we get that Mixed Tag later, for like Fyter Fest 2022 or something.

Great segment out of Rosa, Nyla and Vickie. Nyla proved that the reason she sticks around in these top feuds and title programs is because not only is she imposing in the ring, she’s hilarious on the mic. Rosa VS Nyla is going to be great stuff on a stacked Battle of the Belts II, which now includes the ROH world title. Gresham and Castle are going to have a great match and The Boys reuniting with The Peacock is an underappreciated part of this. We got a good video from Darby and that Coffin Match is gonna be wild. Malakai Black had a really good promo, and that thing about fearing the shadows, the House of Black is definitely adding new members.

Hayter VS Storm in the first round of the Women’s Owen Hart Tournament is great to hype things up, but there goes a semifinal match in my bracket. But at the same time, it takes away predictability since it was gonna be clear those two would meet in the later rounds. Great stuff out of The Pinnacle and Wardlow, and Dean benefits again. Wardlow VS Butcher is going to be badass, and as with all MJF’s feuds, he will have no choice but to face Wardlow in the end and their match can even be Wardlow winning his freedom from MJF.

Really good stuff out of JAS and Kingston-Santana-Ortiz. Good use of “on sight” on location at the airport, and then a great Six Man Tag. JAS of course cheat to win, they mug Kingston, Santana & Ortiz, but this is far from over. Not sure if two other guys join Kingston’s side, but that would be great for a 10 Man Tag, maybe even Blood & Guts II. Shafir VS Skye might be the only letdown of the night. It wasn’t even so much Shafir and Jade failed to play their parts. It was just too much interplay between Shafir and “the baddies,” and Shafir should’ve just had a solid match with Skye instead.

We got great stuff out of Keith & Swerve VS Team Taz because New Orleans was so hot for Starks, but quite the surprise from Taz interfering for his guys. Big win for Hobbs & Starks, we can continue this feud and get great singles matches between all these guys. And of course, we got an awesome main event out of Suzuki VS Joe. Suzuki loves chops, I love chops, I love that Suzuki loves chops, and I love that Joe, who is in both ROH and AEW, gets that ROH title. Now, some mixed feelings about how Lethal & Sonjay added on at the end. Lethal’s first surprise being a middle finger was hilarious, and for Satnam Singh, this is great for him to debut in a big story as Lethal’s muscle.

At the same time, that’s all this is. Lethal goes extra Heel by needing a giant like Singh, and my personal moment of, “Who is that?” killed the momentum. Could’ve been Lethal adding someone fans know from wrestling, like any name from ROH or AEW not doing a damn thing, but this sounds like some weird deal between AEW and Turner since Turner does a lot of NBA stuff. But it’s clear, Joe VS Lethal is the ROH World TV title feud, and the match will be awesome until Singh and/or Dutt interfere.

My Score: 8.9/10

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!

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?

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?

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?

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?

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?

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
