The Best in the World and the Natural finally meet and Pittsburgh is ready for it! But with his pursuit of the AEW World Championship on the line, will Punk be able to keep focus? Or will Dustin remind us all why he’s been here for FOUR DECADES?

The bell rings and fans rally already as the two circle. They approach and then shake hands. Fans cheer the respect shown and the two feel things out. They tie up, then break, and they circle again.

Dustin flops and falls out of the ring, clutches his knee, but he refuses to let this stop him. Fans rally for Dustin and Punk goes out to fetch him. Dustin shoves him away, walks off the bad leg, and Punk pushes him into the ring. Punk gets in, gets the bad leg, but Dustin KICKS him with the other!

Punk snarls but he drops an elbow on the knee! And again! And then he YANKS the leg before dropping another elbow! Dustin clutches the knee and snarls but Punk looms over him.

The ref reprimands but Punk goes for another. Dustin BOOTS Punk up and out! Punk tumbles and now he clutches an arm! Dynamite returns to single picture as fans rally up. Dustin goes to the apron, but Punk sweeps the legs with a roundhouse! Dustin lands hard on the apron, but Punk spins him around. Punk has the legs but Dustin boots him and POSTS him! Dustin then WRINGS Punk into the apron!

Fans fire up as the ref tells them to get in the ring. Punk rolls into the ring, “This is Awesome!” as Dustin gets in soon after. Dustin storms over, Punk wants the leg but Dustin knees him away! Punk KICKS the leg, Dustin CLUBS the bad arm! Punk KICKS, Dustin CHOPS! Punk throws a haymaker but Dustin gives it back! Punk then KICKS and KICKS and KICKS!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall

The Natural did not go to sleep, but he could not escape that last one! He does still show respect to Punk and Punk shows it back. Will these two meet in the ring again some day? Will Punk be AEW World Champion by then?

But speaking of the champion, here comes Hangman Page! The Cowboy got past Adam Cole on Rampage, so it’s time to move on to bigger and better! Punk and Page stare down and fans are losing their minds! Punk gives a nod and heads out. Will this be the showdown we see this summer?

 

Wardlow arrives.

But then security stops him at the door? Mark Sterling has them move aside, and he thanks “Wardy” for showing up to work on time. But listen, going forward, when Wardlow arrives, security will bring him right to his closet- er, locker room. And then from locker room to the ring and then right out of the building. So if Wardlow wants to bring his luggage to the ring with him, that’s totally fine. Okay? Got it, Mark. But Sterling says he “forgot.” Wardlow needs to wear handcuffs while on the premises. A security guard cuffs Wardlow, and then Sterling “remembers” his message from MJF to Wardlow. “Eat sh*t, Pig.”

Wardlow tells Sterling, “Oink oink, bitch.” And can someone help him with his bags? Will the War Dog have no choice but to powerbomb and run tonight?

 

Six Man Tag: The Blackpool Combat Club VS Dante Martin, Lee Moriarty & Brock Anderson w/ Arn Anderson!

The American Dragon, the Maniac and the Decoder proved they can be a team on Rampage, and now they’re going to show that they can be an unstoppable team by winning all over again! Will Angel Dorado, TYGA STYLE & The Son of the Enforcer see what they could be a part of up close and personal?

Teams don’t even sort out, the BCC just attacks! Moxley’s after Brock, Bryan’s after Moriarty and Yuta is after Dante! Mox and Bryan throw Brock and Lee out while Yuta just stomps away on Dante!

Bryan gets an ARMBAR! Brock scrambles but Bryan tags Moxley in. Moxley stomps Brock, then chinbars and hammerlocks. Moxley turns Brock over, pulls on the other arm, bends the fingers, but Brock endures. Dynamite returns to single picture and Arn coaches Brock. Moxley keeps torturing the arm, then YANKS it! Moxley flips off Moriarty but the ref keeps him back. Moxley DECKS Brock, brings him up, DECKS him again, then runs. Brock hits a SPINEBUSTER! Fans fire up as both men are down, and hot tag to Bryan and Moriarty! Pittsburgh’s own rallies on the BCC! BOOT from Bryan, then a PENALTY KICK for Yuta!

Yuta and Moxley give Brock and Dante stereo hammer ‘n’ anvil elbows! Pittsburgh is loving this! The ref has the others get out, so Moxley finishes with PARADIGM SHIFT! Cover, BCC wins!

Winners: The Blackpool Combat Club, by pinfall

That’s 2-0 for what could be the most dangerous trio in wrestling today! Will the BCC soon take over AEW?

 

The Elite are on the Cutler Cam.

“Brandon, are we live?” “We’re live, pal.” “Thanks, man.” Wait, what? No “shut up, Brandon?” Kyle O’Reilly says YES shut up, Landon. Guys, what’s up? Where are the Young Bucks’ rompers and $5,000 shoes? Where are the feisty Bucks of old? Okay, yes, they’re not seeing eye-to-eye after the Bucks lost to FTR. But reDRagon lost to Jungle Cruise, Cole lost to Hangman twice! Bobby Fish says, “Wait, we lost?” Kyle says things have to turn around and they need to live up to the name: The Undisputed Elite! That’s them! So tonight, Kyle will qualify for the Owen Hart Cup by kicking Jungle Boy’s ass!

Cole says, “Dammit, Kyle, you’re right.” They all did lose, but as a team, they can’t be stopped! The Bucks’ friends are gone, but Cole is still here, Kyle and Fish are still here. Cole knows as a unit, they can’t be stopped. So next week, Undisputed Elite Open Challenge for a 10 Man Tag! They’ll remind themselves and everyone just how dangerous they can be. There’s a reason Cole named this group the Undisputed Elite. The Bucks put the elite in it, the others need them. Cole also has something else to take care of, but please think about it.

Cole heads out, reDRagon tells Brandon to cut. Kyle surprises himself for remembering the name. But will AEW all remember just how good the Undisputed Elite really is?

 

AEW hears from Samoa Joe and his enemies.

Joe tells Jay Lethal & Sonjay Dutt that they may have gone out and found themselves a titan, a massive man. Lethal tells Joe that it was a surprise Joe even came out seeing the destruction that was going on during Rampage. Satnam Singh double choke slammed The Boys, blasted Dalton Castle, and played basketball with Jonathan Gresham’s body! Yet, Joe came out with his pipe! Joe is sure Lethal & Dutt feel safe and comfortable. Dutt says for the last 22 years, he has been the greatest professional wrestler India has ever produced, but Singh will carry on that legacy! Lethal says Joe can’t do a thing! Singh is one in a BILLION!

Joe says Lethal does not understand his teacher. He does not understand the kind of man he is. Like everything in this world, there are things that are inevitable. And now, Joe coming after Lethal is inevitable. But Singh tells Joe to get ready, “Your time is coming.” Will the skyscraper that is Satnam Singh send Samoa Joe falling to his doom?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says is time for the HUGE announcement promised for tonight! He introduces the AEW President and CEO, Tony Khan! Tony and Tony shake hands, and fans are fired up. Khan thanks them for that, and he promises this is going to be big. “Ladies and gentlemen, the president of New Japan Pro-Wrestling, Ohbari-san!” And yes, THE Takami Ohbari walks out to shake Khan’s hand. But then Adam Cole interrupts? “There’s only one person who should make an announcement of this magnitude, and that person is Adam Cole Baybay.” Cole is one of the biggest stars to ever wrestle in Japan, and this announcement wouldn’t even be possible without him.

So to get to it, June 26th, the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, AEW and NJPW present: Forbidden Door! Two of the biggest powerhouses giving us an event like we’ve never seen before! Rampage gives us a preview this week, because in an Owen Hart Qualifier, it’ll be Adam Cole VS TOMOHIRO ISHII. Fans are going nuts already but Cole’s not done. The Owen Hart tournament finals will be at Double or Nothing in May, and Cole promises us a member of the Undisputed Elite will take the whole damn thing! And speaking of special moments, Cole has a special friend who wants to say hello.

IT’S THE SWITCHBLADE! Pittsburgh goes nuts as Jay White, leader of Bullet Club, appears! White takes the mic from Khan to say, “Thank you for the introduction, Adam, very kind. It’s very fitting that I would be here for an announcement like this, seeing as the last time NJPW held such a large joint event, I single-handedly sold out Madison Square Garden! So, let me make this very clear. It’s not about NJPW. It’s not about AEW.” Fans cheer for Bullet Club and ” Too Sweet! WOOP WOOP!” White says it’s about the Undisputed Elite! AND Bullet Club. “Because it’s still OUR era.” White throws up the Too Sweet and leaves, but just what will happen as both companies open the Forbidden Door?

 

AEW shares a Marina Shafir highlight reel.

This was just from last night’s episode of AEW Dark, where Shafir easily put away Alejandra Lion.

Jade Cargill, Mark Sterling, and even Red Velvet and Kiera Hogan, finish watching that reel.

And while Jade yawns, Velvet and Kiera say, “Boo! Boring!” and throw popcorn at them. Jade says moving on from Shafir, will these two be in her baddie section for Rampage? Of course! They do need the hottest in that section. Sterling reminds us that on Rampage, we will see Jade Cargill VS Marina Shafir, for the TBS Championship. Jade tells him to shut up about that, she isn’t even worried. Shafir calls herself The Problem? Well Jade’s a problem solver. So see you Friday, bitch!

 

Wardlow VS The Butcher!

The Pinnacle may have kicked the War Dog out of the group and tried to drag him through the mud, but he isn’t just some pig about to be slaughtered! Will a Powerbomb Symphony ring out in the Steel City? Or will the AFO’s mercenary do exactly what MJF paid him to do?

And speaking of, Maxwell Jacob Friedman’s music plays, but he has them cut his music. He’s up in the VIP box with Shawn Spears! MJF says sorry, they wanna boo him? Well he doesn’t care, he sees who they cheer, and his name is Ben Roethlisberger! And they also cheer that pig, Wardlow! But Wardlow is a nobody, just like all the fans here! “And since he IS a nobody,” MJF says while he and Spears dump their popcorn onto the fans below, “he’ll be coming out to no music! Send the pig out here!” Security guards accompany Wardlow, just as Sterling told him they would, and Wardlow is still cuffed! Fans chant his name since there’s no song accompanying him.

Wardlow goes to the ring, the cuffs are removed, and the bell rings. Wardlow and Butcher stare down, and then they rush each other! They ram shoulders, but neither falls. They ram again and Butcher eggs Wardlow on. They ram again, then Butcher throws a forearm! Wardlow hits back, Butcher hits again, and fans fire up as Wardlow gets the edge with haymakers! Butcher growls, ROCKS Wardlow, but Wardlow grows. Butcher BITES Wardlow’s forehead! The ref counts, Butcher lets off but he fires off shots in the corner. He even HEADBUTTS over and over! Butcher whips Wardlow to ropes but Wardlow busts the clothesline to CLOBBER Butcher!

Wardlow rallies, runs Butcher over, and Butcher bails out! Fans fire up as Wardlow paces around. But Butcher gets chairs! This isn’t about winning, but about hurting Wardlow! The ref confiscates one chair, then the other. Butcher still paces on the outside, and he dares Wardlow to come out. Wardlow dares Butcher to come back, and Butcher returns to the ring, just to trip Wardlow up! Wardlow boots Butcher away and goes out after him, only for Butcher to RAM him into apron! And then into railing! Butcher CLOBBERS Wardlow, whips him back into the apron and clotheslines again! Then back the other way!

Butcher brings Wardlow around to POST him! Butcher tries again but Wardlow blocks! Wardlow elbows Butcher, POSTS him back, then reels him in! Fans fire up, but Butcher POSTS Wardlow to avoid the bomb! Then Butcher APRON BACK SUPLEXES! MJF and Spears finally eat popcorn as they enjoy what they’re seeing. Butcher gets Wardlow in the ring to then CLOBBER him! Butcher drags Wardlow up, reels him in, POWERBOMB! High stack, ONE?!? Even Butcher is shocked! Wardlow seethes as he gets back up. The straps come down and fans fire up! Butcher runs in but Wardlow kicks low!

Wardlow reels Butcher in, fans are thunderous, for the POWERBOMB!! MJF and Spears are worried now as Wardlow gets Butcher back up! POWERBOMB! Fans want that “One More Time!” and Wardlow gets Butcher up for a THIRD POWERBOMB! But that’s not enough! Here’s a FOURTH POWERBOMB! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

MJF paid good money for nothing! But per the edict, MJF’s guards come back. Wardlow scares one, but the cuffs are put back on. Wardlow blows a kiss to MJF, when and where will Wardlow finally get his hands on MJF?

 

Eddie Kingston speaks.

“On Rampage, me and you, Garcia, and your JAS, all your friends and your King Jericho, not allowed in the building! Santana & Ortiz, not allowed in the building! So it’s just me and you, partner! Jericho, watch what I do to Garcia. Because everything I do to Garcia, I’m gonna do to you. Everything I do to Garcia is meant for you! I’m gonna have fun with you, boy. I’m gonna rip you real good. And when it’s all said and done, all your friends and family in Buffalo ain’t gonna recognize you. You reap what you sew. But people like me, my man? I don’t sew, I just reap.” Will Kingston become a grim reaper this Friday Night Rampage?

 

Owen Hart Memorial Men’s Tournament Qualifier: Jungle Boy VS Kyle O’Reilly!

While Jurassic Express retained the AEW World Tag Team Championships, there’s another prize for the taking. Will Jungle Boy swing into this inaugural tournament? Or will Kyle be the first of the Undisputed Elite to put their name in the hat for the cup?

The bell rings and the two stare down. The fans rally up as these two circle. They tie up, Kyle waistlocks but JB switches. Kyle switches back, JB drop toeholds and floats to a facelock. Kyle slips out to facelock, JB slips away and fans cheer the opening exchange. They go again, feel things out, knuckle lock and go shoulder to shoulder in a test of strength. JB gets under but Kyle fights off the back drop. Kyle tries to turn it around but JB stops that. JB monkey flips and rolls back but Kyle fights the cover. Kyle pushes at JB’s arms, turns him around, drags him to a cover, ONE as JB gets his arm up.

Kyle moves to get that arm down, ONE as the other arm comes up. JB kips up, CHOPS then goes up and up, to rebound and arm- NO! ARMBAR! JB scrambles to the ROPEBREAK and Kyle lets off. Kyle stomps JB into a corner, stands him up to fire off strikes, but lets off as the ref counts. Kyle comes back, he wrenches and whips JB corner to corner, but JB goes up and over. JB keeps moving, he ducks and dodges then rolls off the back to slide under and dropkick! JB kips up and fans fire up, and JB stands Kyle up to CHOP! Kyle ROCKS JB with a forearm, but JB CHOPS back!

Dynamite is picture in picture as Kyle gets a body scissors. Kyle also uses a chinlock, but JB fights that much off. Kyle traps an arm as part of the hold now, then gets the chinlock back. JB pushes back to a cover, TWO! Kyle lets JB go but stomps him down. Kyle stalks JB but JB back elbows. Kyle KICKS JB against ropes, then has JB in a corner. JB BOOTS back, BOOTS again, and Kyle backs off. Kyle storms up, blocks the boots this time and KICKS the bad leg! Kyle looms over JB, toys with him a bit, and he rains down elbows and forearms! JB can only guard as Kyle KNEES him! Kyle drags JB up but JB throws body shots!

Kyle HEADBUTTS JB, KICKS him down, then paces. Kyle drags JB into a chinbar, and he digs his elbow into JB’s face. The ref reprimands so Kyle shifts to a cobra clutch. JB endures but Kyle shifts right to a grounded cobra twist! JB still endures, Kyle drag shim into a cover, TWO! Kyle wrenches an arm, grinds JB down, but JB throws haymakers. Kyle holds onto the arm, JB throws more shots, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Fans rally, JB throws more body shots but Kyle trips him! JB boots Kyle away as fans duel.

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by pinfall (advances to the Owen Hart Men’s Tournament)

The killer Canadian is entering the tournament! Will he do Canada and the Undisputed Elite proud by taking the cup? As for JB, he apologizes to Christian Cage for failing him. Captain Charisma says he didn’t fail, and the two head off. Will JB just have to focus on defending those AEW World Tag Team Championships for now?

 

Backstage interview with MJF & Shawn Spears.

Alex Marvez says The Butcher couldn’t get the job done, and then MJF snatches the mic! Spears calms MJF down and MJF says yes, Butcher failed, but there’s a lot more money where that came from. MJF is a snake, and when he said those words, men, women and children around the world grew sick to their stomachs. How could a man so proudly say he’s a snake? Well much like a snake, when MJF decides that you are his prey, it doesn’t matter how big or how bad someone is. All it takes is one bite. Spears produces more money, and MJF gives it over to Jake the Snake! Don’t look surprised. This is what the world’s about.

Jake says that while some people need diamonds and title belts, that is for the little boys who chase the ladies. Jake chases money. And when the time is right, and that’s right now, Jake can smell it from a mile away. This will be like when Wardlow was a little boy lying to grammy just so daddy won’t slap him again. Hell is for children! Remember that! But then Lance Archer storms in and slaps the money down! He doesn’t need to be paid extra, he just wants to fight Wardlow! And if anyone, and he means anyone, gets in the way, #EverybodyDies! The Murderhawk Monster is next up, will he be the one to lay waste to Wardlow?

 

Hook VS Anthony Henry!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil has been on Rampage after Rampage and is now 6-0. But for the first time since his debut, he’s on a Dynamite! Will his streak hit lucky number seven? Or will he stumble before the Premier Athlete gets a chance to face him?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Hook goes for an arm and wrenches through to ankle pick. Henry kicks at him but Hook gets a HALF CRAB! Henry gets the ropebreak, Hook holds on until 4. Hook then goes right after Henry in the corner with heavy hand and knees! Then he TOSSES Henry across the way! Hook whips, reels Henry in, NORTHERN LIGHTS! Tony Nese and Mark Sterling are in the crowd to take notes but Nese doesn’t seem that impressed. Fans cheer Hook, though, and he runs ropes. Henry ducks once but the BLINDSIDE lariat hits! Hook then throws crossface forearms! And-

Wait, is that Danhausen? Danhausen CURSES Hook! But it still doesn’t do anything. Hook just CLUBS Henry more, before wrapping on REDRUM!! Henry taps, Hook wins!

Winner: Hook, by submission

Danhausen gets a mic to says it’s enough! He’s had it up to here with Hook! Hook things he can just ignore Danhausen week in and week out, then toss around and decimate these hard body super fools? NO! If Hook won’t be cursed by Danhausen, he will FIGHT Danhausen! Pittsburgh goes nuts as Hook looks at the finger pointed at him. Danhausen brings his finger back, but Hook just shoulder bumps him. When and where will Hook rip into his very nice, very evil stalker?

 

Backstage interview with Frankie Kazarian.

Tony Schiavone says Kaz, 10-1 in 2022, is here to make a challenge. Kaz is calling out Sammy Guevara! But then Scorpio Sky walks in. Kaz’s former SCU tag partner apologizes for interrupting, but this is very important. Since Battle of the Belts, Scorpio has time to reflect. 402 days undefeated, TNT Champion, Tag Team Champion, Face of the Revolution. One hell of a run, but none of it is possible without Kaz. Five years ago, Scorpio called Kaz for a favor. Scorpio was struggling, and he needed a shot. They formed SCU, the rest is history. But now, Scorpio has another favor.

Yes, Kaz wants to be TNT Champion, but Scorpio wants him to wait a little longer. Scorpio is going to challenge Sammy, get that belt back, and then he will give Kaz the first shot. Kaz tells Scorp that he’s always had his back. And he always will. Kaz is gonna let The Closer take his shot first! Will the Spanish God be willing to go another round with Scorpio Sky?

 

Thunder Rosa speaks.

“Last Saturday, at Battle of the Belts, well Thunder Rosa beheaded The Beast. Nyla Rose, you thought I was gonna be a stepping stone for you to retake the AEW Women’s World Championship? Damn, girl, you were absolutely wrong. I am nobody’s stepping stone! I have shown, over and over again, that I am one of the best in the world. And to continue to show that, I have to face the most experienced and the best competitors that there are. One defense done, and now it’s time to go Double or Nothing.” La Mera Mera is planning on taking this title to Vegas, but who will meet here there?

 

Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti are in the ring.

The Spanish God gets the mic as he stands with the Brazilian Blackbelt Beauty, and as Pittsburgh boos him, to say, “I love this. I feel on top of the world, right where I should be, as TNT Champion for a third time.” And with the love of his life, Tay. They kiss, and they say they love each other. Sammy also loves the fans. The ones that cheer and support them, he will give you his everything forever because they deserve it. But for the rest of you, and he can hear you, those that turned on them the first chance they got, he asks why. Is it cuz his girlfriend is hotter than theirs? Well they have one option: #BeMad.

“Oh so it’s gonna be like that, huh, Sammy?” Scorpio barges out with Ethan Page and Dan Lambert behind him. So it’s just screw the fans and Men of the Year, as well as all the people that supported him by watching those stupid vlogs? Well guess what? The feeling in this room is not screw us. It’s screw YOU, SamTay! Oh, really? Screw them? Ethan shouts at Sammy to shut the hell up! There’s not a single ass in the seat tonight that’s here to hear Sammy talk! And the only reason Men of the Year aren’t ripping Sammy’s head off his shoulders and putting 12 stitches in that ugly ass face is because Dan Lambert decided tonight is about business.

So shut your mouths, open your ears, and listen to #DynamiteDan! Fans actually cheer Lambert as he says Grandpa Lambert always said, “Youth is wasted on the young.” And that’s true, because while they have big dreams and the energy to go anywhere they like, they just lack the experience to make the wise choices. Sammy’s a perfect example, because he risks everything in the ring to earn the respect of the fans, and now he’s all up in his feelings, acting like some high school DOUCHEBAG who can’t keep his tongue out of his girlfriend’s mouth! But here’s one more choice: either Scorpio gets his rematch, or Scorpio & Ethan go to the ring to give Sammy the pounding Tay dreams about!

SamTay talk it over, and Sammy tells Dan, “I don’t give a sh*t about your or your dead grandpa.” All Sammy does care about is a match. So fine, they’ll have a rematch for the title next week, if SamTay gets their mixed tag match. What do they say? DONE! Well then, next week, it’s a LADDER MATCH! Sammy adds one last caveat before signing off, but will the Spanish God survive when he gives Scorpio Sky a fair shot?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Brody King says, “The last time we addressed you, we said that we would turn your eyes black. And yet, you kept us waiting, because you refused to draw blood.” Buddy Matthews says, “So the House had to change the narrative, because the House felt it needed to do so.” No fire will be resurrected, and the ashes will be washed away with the rain of shame. Malakai Black appears to say, “The House is owed a debt. Icarus flew too close to the sun, so next week, the sun dies.” Is the House of Black looking to extinguish Fuego Del Sol once and for all?

 

Owen Hart Memorial Women’s Tournament Qualifier: Britt Baker w/ Najee Harris & Pat Freiermuth VS Danielle Kamela!

The Steel City is ready for this one! The Doctor is back in action for the first time since losing the AEW Women’s World Championship, and she’s going for quite the prize! Will Britt continue to add to her accolades? Or will The Beautiful Vision make this real ugly for #Brittsburgh?

The bell rings and fans are thunderous for “D M D! D M D!” Britt and Kamela tie up, Kamela waistlocks then shoves, to then gloat and mock the chants. Kamela and Britt reset, tie up, and Kamela waistlocks again, to then SLAM Britt down. Kamela holds on as Britt fights up. Britt headlocks, wrenches, and hammerlocks. Kamela fights but Britt snapmares and ghost pins, TWO! Kamela gets up but into another roll up, TWO! Britt kicks low, brings Kamela in, BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Britt leads the fans in “DMD” chants, then she ROCKS Kamela with a forearm. Britt ROCKS Kamela more, then climbs up to rain down some fists! But Kamela slips out to trip Britt up! Kamela brings Britt up to bump off buckles, then she goes corner to corner for a BLINDSIDE BRONCO BUSTER! Kamela bumps Britt off more buckles, throws her down, then soaks up the heat. Kamela stomps Britt around, but Britt throws body shots. Kamela CLUBS Britt down, shoves her down, then steps on her to go to the corner. VADER ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Kamela tries again, TWO! Kamela is annoyed but Britt hits back.

Kamela CLUBS and hammers Britt, this is some of that Super Bowl 43 grudge right now. The ref counts, Kamela lets off, and Britt mule kicks! Kamela kicks back, stomps away in the corner, then drags Britt out to WRING her arm! Kamela runs to CLOBBER Britt, then high stack! TWO, and right into the crossface! Kamela slips away to then CLUB Britt back down! Kamela drags Britt up into a chinlock and she grinds Britt down. Britt endures, pulls Kamela’s hair, but the ref reprimands. Britt fights up but Kamela throws her down again! Kamela soaks up heat while pacing around Britt. Kamela mocks Britt, lines up the shot, and KICKS Britt down!

Kamela says the kick was good, then takes a bow. Dynamite returns to single picture as Kamela taunts Najee and Freiermuth. She snatches the Terrible Towel to CHOKE Britt with it! The ref reprimands, Kamela lets Britt go to then swing around the towel. Britt TACKLES Kamela! Fans fire up as Britt rains down forearms! Kamela kicks free and kicks low to whip, but Britt ducks to ROLLING ELBOW! Kamela staggers, Britt ROCKS her again! Britt ROCKS Kamela more, has her against ropes and just fires off! The ref counts, Britt whips but Kamela reverses, only for Britt to SLINGBLADE! Fans fire up as Britt reels Kamela in.

Britt whips, Kamela reverses again but Britt dodges in the corner to SUPERKICK! Kamela staggers, Britt reels her in, FISHERMAN SCREW! Kamela flounders, Britt aims and CURB STOMPS! Britt calls to Freiermuth and he gives her a Steelers glove! Fans fire up as she puts it on, and wraps Kamela up, LOCKJAW!! Kamela taps, Britt wins!

Winner: Britt Baker, by submission (advances to the Owen Hart Women’s Tournament)

The crowd goes wild! Britt gets the mic to tell Pittsburgh that finally, they have a woman in the ring with a mic who knows how to use it. The last few weeks have been very clear, and that is the division is a disaster without her. Let’s see what they’re left with without their DMD. T0here’s Ruby Soho, the Runaway, who literally needs to run away instead of coming out looking like a redheaded rascal. There’s Toni Storm, who sadly has Britt’s girl, Jamie Hayter, in round one. And guess what, Toni? If you thought cake to the face was bad, just wait until Hayter mops her face with the ring. Toni will wanna leave here, too.

And last but not least, if you noticed, Jade Cargill said Pittsburgh is ugly. The only people here tonight wanting to see Jade are the ones she gave free tickets to. And the latest addition to that “Baddies” club is Red Velvet, who if no one else remembers, Britt whooped Velvet last year. But the baddies can sit down, THIS is the baddest bitch on the block! And your future Owen Hart Women’s Tournament winner. Yours Truly, Dr. Britt Baker, DMD.

 

AEW hears from Serena Deeb and Hikaru Shida.

The Professor of Pro-Wrestling says this all started seven months ag in Philly. Serena said it then that Shida is not on her level, but Shida asks, “How long are we doing this? Let’s finish this!” Next week on Dynamite, they will end this, and they each vow to end the other! This will end where it started, because it will be a PHILLY STREET FIGHT!! Chairs, tables, kendo sticks, the challenge is accepted! Who survives this grudge match in the land of extreme?

 

Coffin Match: Darby Allin VS Andrade El Idolo!

That’s right, the Relentless One and the leader of the AFO are going around one more time, with the ONLY way to win being when you stuff your opponent into that pinewood box! Who will not so much win as survive this grim showdown in the Steel City?

Dynamite returns and Darby makes his entrance. The bell rings and the fans fire up. The BLADE appears ringside and Darby swings at him with his skateboard! Blade gets away but Andrade waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! But Darby lands on his feet! And JAMS Andrade with the board, then SMACKS him on the back with it! Darby eggs Blade on then JAMS Andrade again. Darby has to swipe at Blade again, but Marq Quen rushes out! The AFO is getting involved as always as Quen beats Darby down! Andrade high-fives his guys and they stalk Darby to a corner. Andrade stomps away on Darby, then soaks up the heat.

Darby bails out of the ring, but the AFO go out after him. Andrade tries to open the coffin but gets a splinter perhaps. Darby gets up to JAM Blade and JAM Quen! Then he steps on the coffin to LEAP, but Andrade catches Darby to SLAM him through railing! Darby crawls but Andrade grabs the skateboard. Andrade SMACKS Darby with it! Then Andrade lets Blade and Quen stomp away on Darby while he goes back for the coffin. A fan has a “I’m here for Darby Allin” sign, but Quen takes that and rips it up! But this fan takes off his Sting mask, and it’s ACTUAL STIIIIIIING! Sting beats up Quen and Blade!

Fans are thunderous as Sting keeps after Blade and Quen while Andrade keeps after Darby. These five are brawling through the crowd, Sting uses the trash can to hit everyone, and Darby rakes Andrade’s eyes! They move along the walkway, Sting throws Quen and Blade into railings, break ’em down, then keep going towards the crane mic. Andrade knocks Darby down, brings him over, and fans are loving this! Andrade fireman’s carries Darby but Darby fights free! Darby sends Andrade into the railing on the stairs! Blade is after Darby while Sting drags Quen up to the upper level! Sting has Quen up on the railing but Quen pokes his eyes!

Quen kicks Sting, Blade passes him a chair, and Quen SMACKS Sting! Sting doesn’t flinch!! Sting CHOPS Quen, then SHOVES Quen onto Blade and Andrade! Sting then goes up higher and fans are thunderous! Sting FLIES!! Direct hit on everyone!! Fans lose their minds while Dynamite goes picture in picture!

Sting manages to get up, he and Darby regroup, and Sting howls and beats his chest! Sting goes after Blade, Darby is after Andrade. Darby uses a chair to SMACK Andrade! Sting brings Quen along now, Darby takes Andrade back towards ringside. Andrade whips Darby into and over the railing! Darby flounders and clutches his ribs while Andrade paces about. Andrade puts chairs in the ring, then hauls Darby up to SNAKE EYES off the apron! Darby flops, Andrade catches his breath, and Andrade puts Darby back in. Andrade gets the chair and wedges it in the corner. Andrade then storms over to Darby and fires up.

Andrade CLUBS Darby, but Darby just seethes. Darby throws forearms but Andrade gives them back! Darby staggers but he hits Andrade back. Andrade fumes but Darby throws more shots. Andrade winds back, but kicks low! Then he RAMS Darby into the chair! Andrade dusts off his hands while Darby is down in the corner. Andrade goes out to look under the ring, but he can’t find anything so he just takes a chair from the timekeeper’s area. Andrade holds the chair up high before he wedges it into Darby’s face! Dynamite returns to single picture as fans boo and Andrade soaks up heat. Andrade powers up and runs corner to corner, but Darby throws the chair at him!

The chair hits Andrade in the legs, and then Andrade hits buckles! Darby runs in to hop on and CODE RED! Darby kicks Andrade out of the ring, hurries up the corner and takes aim! SUPER COFFIN- NO! Andrade catches Darby for a GERMAN SUPLEX to the floor! Fans rally behind Darby but Andrade drags him up and over towards the coffin! The lid is up, Andrade SLAPS Darby into the coffin! And we see now that the lid is covered in thumbtacks! No wonder Andrade pricked a finger! But Darby has to block the lid from closing, meaning those tacks dig into his forearm! Darby then mule kicks Andrade away!

Andrade comes back to ROCK Darby, and then drag him up to suplex to the ramp! Andrade brought Darby halfway up the ramp with that, and he looks to the steel grate walkway by the stage. Andrade drags Darby up again, to suplex! Darby fights it, throws knees, then body shots. But Andrade still tries! Darby fights more, Andrade powers through to suplex and TOSS Darby onto the grate! Darby writhes, Andrade storms over and drags him back to the ramp. Andrade drags Darby down the ramp towards the coffin. Andrade hauls Darby up, RAMS him into steel steps, and then drags him up again.

Andrade scoops Darby, SNAKE EYES off the apron, and then Andrade boots the coffin? He’s breaking the lid off it! Andrade wants to use the lid as a weapon! The lid is attached pretty securely, so Andrade scoops Darby and carries him up to the apron! But Darby throws elbows! Darby turns things around, THROWBACK STUNNER HOTSHOT COMBO! Andrade falls towards the coffin, and Darby DIVES! Direct hit and they both fall into the coffin!! Fans are thunderous as Darby drags himself out. Darby puts Andrade’s legs back in, then gets the lid! Andrade sits up, but Darby SLAMS the lid into him!

Jose the assistant runs down, Andrade’s last hope! Jose steps on the lid to keep Darby from trying again, and then he BOOTS Darby! Jose rips off his shirt like he’s muy macho, and he reels Darby in. But Darby back drops Jose onto the lid! Jose gets tacks to his back, then Darby SLAMS the lid onto Andrade! Darby then jumps onto the lid to shut it completely, Darby wins!

Winner: Darby Allin

Sting returns to regroup and celebrate with Darby, these two stand tall over the AFO once again! Even the Hardy Boyz show up to say Darby just DELETED Andrade! Darby slammed the lid on Andrade, but has he turned the page on his grudge with El Idolo?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of Dynamite here, lots of great stuff leading into the Summer. For one, Tony Khan’s newest announcement was indeed huge, as they are officially working with NJPW and giving us a crossover event. I cannot wait to see what great match-ups we get in AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door. Of course, Cole VS Ishii for Rampage this week is a great sampler, and I would think Cole qualifies for the Owen Hart tournament. Jay White showing up to basically say Undisputed Elite and Bullet Club are on the same side was cool, but I bet something happens where they won’t be. UE VS any five guys will be a great 10 Man next week, too.

Great stuff from the Owen Hart tournament qualifiers tonight, too. I figured Kyle would win over JB because even without Cole promising Undisputed Elite winning the whole thing, Jurassic Express has the tag titles. Jurassic Express will be busy defending those at Double or Nothing so they don’t need to be in the Owen Hart Cup, as Kyle called it. Britt VS Kamela was pretty good stuff but it was definitely more for Britt’s homecoming than anything. Britt of course wins because of the hometown hero power as well as just her being more established than Kamela. Britt had a hard hitting promo that kept her Heel despite Pittsburgh loving her, and any of those names she called out will meet her (and lose to her) in the tournament.

But speaking of Velvet and Jade, I’m surprised they’re on the same page now. They basically hated each other in their feud, but I guess that’s just how it is in wrestling. When you and your rival end up the same, both Heels or both Faces, you’re allies now. The way they keep having Jade play it off like Shafir isn’t good enough, the more I think Sharfir becomes the one in 29-1. That would be pretty nuts, and then it totally frees Jade up to go after the world title. We got a great promo out of Rosa calling out basically everyone else, so Jade VS Rosa would make for a great Double or Nothing title match.

Deeb and Shida have a great vignette, their Philly Street Match is going to be wild and could go either way. I’m leaning towards Shida, though, as a momentum builder for the Owen Hart tournament. Good vignette from Samoa Joe, Lethal and Lethal’s group. I guess Joe will have to fight through Singh to get to Lethal, and that’ll actually be a really good first match for Singh. Eddie Kingston has another great promo, and his match with Garcia is going to be awesome. Kingston VS Jericho II should definitely happen for Double or Nothing, alongside a separate Santana & Ortiz VS Ever-Rise.

Punk VS Dustin was an awesome opening match, Dustin does still have it, but naturally Punk wins. Hangman staring Punk down basically solidifies that their title match is for Double or Nothing, and it is going to be a killer match. The Six Man Tag was also great stuff, and of course BCC wins. I was a little surprised it was Lee Moriarty and not Lee Johnson, but it makes sense with Moriarty as one of the names Bryan dropped when this story started. Moriarty should still definitely join up. That way, Bryan & Mox can Two Man Power Trip in AEW, Moriarty & Yuta can do the same in ROH for a huge Four Man Power Trip.

An interesting promo from the House of Black. I guess they’re after Fuego still, but does Fuego turn or join Death Triangle? Everything with Wardlow and the Pinnacle was great. MJF having Sterling as a messenger for the crappy deal Wardlow got tonight was great, as was Wardlow and Butcher having a great hoss fight. Wardlow of course wins, and MJF of course escalates. Archer and Jake had a good promo, Wardlow VS Archer is gonna be wild, and somehow, someway, Wardlow wins. I thought Hook was gonna face Nese tonight, but him tapping out Anthony Henry was still good. Danhausen finally having a match in AEW is going to be awesome, I can’t wait to see it.

In perhaps surprise of the year, we got a double turn between SamTay and American Top Team. I guess that’s just how bad things have got for Sammy where he’s the lesser of two jackasses when compared to Dan Lambert. But one way or another, we got the Mixed Tag Match coming, and Sammy is going to use that ladder match to keep the title from Scorpio. Kaz will step up after, Sammy probably gets another win, and who knows where it goes from there. And of course, an awesome main event in that Coffin Match. Sting and the AFO getting involved should’ve been obvious, but I did love Sting did the “wearing Sting mask” joke again.

If there was even another minute left at the end of the show, I am confident Darby was going to SUPER Coffin Drop to shut the lid on Andrade. The Hardys also got to show up at the very end so they get paid this week. Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean things are over between AFO and Darby-Sting-Hardys. But at the same time, how much more do they escalate things? Maybe the final blow-off is Hardys VS Private Party since Quen & Kassidy betrayed Matt and now Matt & Jeff are gonna teach them a lesson. That would actually be great stuff, especially if it’s No Disqualifications.

My Score: 8.9/10

Darby Allin VS The Beast Mortos!

The ESports Stadium in Texas fires up as The Relentless One is back in action! He’s getting ready for Blood & Guts this Wednesday, but will he be red hot going into Dynamite? Or will he not get past the beast standing in his way?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Darby circles with Mortos, they tie up, and Mortos powers Darby to a corner. The ref counts, Mortos lets off and the two reset.

Darby storms up and fires forearms and CHOPS! Darby whips, Mortos reverses, and Mortos catches Darby’s Coffin Drop! Darby fires elbows, shoves him away, but Mortos comes back! Sunset flip, but Darby sits on it! Mortos pushes up but Darby rolls him to a cover, TWO! Darby clamps on with a SLEEPER! The fans rally, Mortos fights up, and Mortos runs to BACKPACK CANNONBALL!

Mortos tumbles up and out, no cameramen harmed in the fall!

Darby goes up to SUPER COFFIN DROP! Down goes Mortos again and the fans lose their minds! Darby drags Mortos back up, puts him in the ring, and then climbs up. But Mortos HEADBUTTS Darby down! Mortos builds speed to TORNILLO TOPE!! Direct hit and the fans are thunderous again! They cheer on “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving them this opener.

Winner: Darby Allin, by pinfall

Both men were relentless tonight, but it’s Darby who survives their Collision! Will Darby be even more dangerous when he steps inside the double ring, double cage that is Blood & Guts?

Darby gets a mic to have his music cut. He says people tell him to slow down, or else he won’t be able to walk when he’s 30. Well, he is 30 now, and he feels wonderful! The only thing is, Darby doesn’t take the night off. Darby doesn’t forget being a dishwasher. He’d rather get kicked in the face any night of the week than go back to that. And we’re getting ready for Blood & Guts, and it’s very fitting that Darby’s finally in one. If anyone saw Sting’s final match, they saw Darby’s guts hanging out! He has a scar on his side that looks like Harry Potter’s forehead, and it stings every day. The fans cheer that!

Darby wants to talk the EVPs for a second, The Young Bucks. What sucks about them is that they never come to Collision, they never advertise the shows on the news or radio. It is Darby! AEW is Darby’s baby now! And he will stop at nothing to make sure everyone knows! Darby wouldn’t be here if not for The Bucks, that’s no secret, but man, they suck so bad now. And Jack Perry… Oh, Jack Perry. TNT Champion? No, that title means everything to Darby, and he will stop at nothing until the belt is around his waist again. So All In is around the corner… If Jack has the balls, let’s play! Darby is ready for Blood & Guts, see you Wednesday!

 

The Acclaimed speak.

Max Caster says, “Yo! Listen! The Elite, Blood & Guts next week, Team AEW is about to stomp on those tiny little nuts.” Billy Gunn tells Caster to just stop right there. That is not what the match is about. It is not about Bowens being The Scissor King, or about Caster being a rapper. It is about being the best wrestlers alive, and about being a badass! They need to bring this fight to The Elite! Time to nut up or shut up! Daddy Ass is fired up for his boys, and that fires them up! Bowens & Caster are ready to get serious, will they make The Young Bucks pay for playing games with them?

 

Skye Blue VS Hikaru Shida!

To be the best, you gotta beat one of the best, and that is why Chicago Skye called out the former THREE-TIME AEW Women’s World Champion! Will Skye use this Collision to build momentum? Or is she just going to give Shida her own rebound victory towards a title?

The bell rings and Skye BOOTS Shida down! Skye bumps Shida off buckles, stomps a mudhole in, then lets off. Skye brings Shida around to bump off buckles again, then stomps her more. Shida hits back, but Skye ROCKS her for it. Skye brings Shida around again, but Shida breaks free to ROCK Skye! Skye fires another forearm, but so does Shida! They go back and forth, faster and faster, then Shida fires off a flurry! Shida ROCKS Skye, fires up, then catches Skye to spin her. Skye ELBOWS Shida first, then runs, but into a KNEE! Shida runs but Skye SHINING WIZARDS at the ropes! Skye snapmares and runs up, but Shida blocks!

Shida spins Skye, ducks the spin kick and rolls Skye up! Skye rolls through but Shida DROPKICKS her out of the ring! The fans fire up and Shida watches Skye go around the way. Shida goes up and CROSSBODIES! Down goes Skye and the ref has Doc Sampson check. Shida gets herself a chair while she waits, and the fans fire up while Collision goes picture in picture.

Shida paces while Skye is checked out. That fall really rocked her, maybe even beat up a leg. Shida paces, then goes back into the ring to wait. Shida keeps the fans fired up, but it doesn’t look good for Skye. Shida checks with the ref, and it seems the match has been called! Shida wins by default!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by medical stoppage

A real shame for Skye, as she was the one who wanted this fight. But Shida is still moving on, will she be waiting on the champions after All In?

 

Lancer Archer is going nuts backstage!

He is beating up and throwing around prospects left and right! One guy walks in, sees what’s going on, and turns right around, only for Archer to grab him and CHUCK him into the garage door! “It seems everyone has forgotten who the Murderhark Monster is! Everyone’s forgotten just what I can do. And it’s time to remind you all!” Archer CHUCKS a trash can into another guy, #EverybodyDies! Who else will be unfortunate enough to face Archer’s wrath?

 

Chris Jericho speaks.

“Hi, guys~! And hello, Minoru Suzuki. We’ve been waiting a long time for this match, haven’t we? For four years, I’ve been thinking of Suzuki VS Jericho. For four years, I’ve been wanting this match in the Tokyo Dome, or on Dynamite. And now, this Wednesday, the match comes true. It’s a dream match for sure. First time ever! But for you, Minoru, it’s gonna be a nightmare. Get ready for some night sweats and night terrors just thinking what I’m gonna do to you, and even worse after the match. They talk about Blood & Guts this Wednesday. This match is gonna be far more violent than that.

“They call you The Murder Grampa, one of the most violent men who ever came outta Japan. Well, Suzuki, if there’s anybody that can match you blow for blow, experience for experience, match for match, it’s me. So Suzuki, I can’t wait to teach you a few very valuable lessons. And one of them is gonna be you should’ve never turned down The Learning Tree when I asked you to be my partner, and you never should’ve come to the ring during TV Time last week on Dynamite. Suzuki, this is it, one for the ages. Like I said, first time ever, Jericho, Suzuki, Learning Tree VS the most violent man in Japanese history, I can’t wait.

“We’ll see you on, Wednesday, Suzuki, you’re not gonna like it. Thanks, guys!” The Learning Tree has been rather delusional these days, but has he reached a new level with this? Or does he have something up his sleeve to help him survive Suzuki?

 

Rey Fenix w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Tony Nese w/ The Premier Athletes!

The Immortal Firebird just won big last night on Rampage alongside Penta El Zero Miedo, but there’s no slowing down with him! However, “Smart Mark” Sterling has everyone stop so his client can say something very important. Nese takes the mic, even as fans boo, and Nese says “When they said everything is bigger in Texas, I’m gonna be honest. I thought they were talking about the cars, the houses. But the reason why they say that, now i can see, is because all of you are terribly, terribly FAT!” The fans boo but Nese says yes, it upsets him, too. But it isn’t entirely their fault. It is not. It’s because they haven’t had real athletes to look up!

Who’re they looking up to? The under-500 Texas Rangers? So, Nese’s lawyer, THE GREATEST lawyer in pro-wrestling, Sterling has made a contract to give a lucky individual an opportunity. But more importantly, it gives every single piece of trash here tonight to see what a real athlete looks like! But here comes Fenix! Will he make Nese regret flexing on Texas?

The bell rings and the fans rally for “LUCHA! LUCHA!” Fenix and Nese circle, feel things out, and they tie up. Nese wrenches, wristlocks, and grinds the arm. Fenix moves around, uses ropes to flip through, and then he wrenches to wristlock back. The fans rally as Fenix twists the wrist, but Nese fights up. Fenix HEADBUTTS the arm, but Nese fights up again. Fenix wrenches, Nese rolls, and then Nese throat chops! The fans boo and the ref reprimands, but Nese SOBATS Fenix to run and BOOT! And WHEEL KICK! Cover, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese soaks up the heat. Nese stalks Fenix but the fans chant “You Still Suck!”

Nese drags Fenix by his leg, stomps away, and Fenix crawls away. Nese stalks Fenix, stomps the leg more, then brings him up. Nese CHOPS, Fenix CHOPS, repeat! The fans “WOO~!” as the CHOPS keep going! Fenix fires up and he CHOPS! Nese falls back against ropes while Fenix eggs him on! Nese kicks low, whips, but Fenix reverses and DROPKICKS! Nese bails out, Fenix gets the bad leg moving, and he builds speed, only for Sterling to save Nese!

Fenix slides out, glares at Sterling, then ROCKS Nese! Daivari steps up but that’s a distraction. Same for Josh Woods! The ref reprimands, Nese blocks the superkick to then SUPERKICK back! Fenix falls, Nese slides into the ring, and that lets the Premier Athletes mug Fenix! The fans boo but the ref misses it all as Collision goes picture in picture.

Fenix clutches his leg, drags himself up, and Daivari talks trash on the fans. Nese AX HANDLES Fenix, but then Fenix shoves Nese. Nese ROCKS Fenix, CHOPS him again, but Fenix just CHOPS back! Nese kicks the bad leg, then whips Fenix hard into railing! Fenix falls over, Nese flexes while soaking up heat, and he goes back for Fenix. Nese puts Fenix in the ring, stomps him, then paces around. Nese drags Fenix up, TOSSES him up, and the Premier Athletes mug Fenix again! Fenix tumbles away to the ramp while Abrahantes protests, but that just lets even Sterling get his shots in! Fenix storms up on Sterling and he runs away as Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Nese covers, TWO! Fenix is still in this, but Nese pushes him around. Fenix CHOPS back! Fenix eggs Nese on, Nese SLAPS, so Fenix CHOPS! Nese fires a haymaker, talks trash, but Fenix fires body shots. Nese stands Fenix up to CHOP him back down! Nese drags Fenix to a cover, ONE! Nese is annoyed but he drags Fenix up. Fenix CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS, CHOPS, CHOPS! Nese throat chops! The ref reprimands, but Nese HOTSHOT BULLDOGS! Then he slingshots to roll Fenix up, TWO! Nese deadlifts to a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and the fans fire up!

Nese and the Premier Athletes are frustrated but the fans rally behind Fenix. Nese drags Fenix up, pushes him to a corner and he fires haymakers! The fans boo but Nese sits Fenix down. The ref counts, Nese lets off, and Nese brings down the kneepads. Nese goes side to side, but Fenix somersaults to SPIKE-RANA! Cover, TWO!! Nese survives, but Fenix BOOTS him! Fenix runs in to JUMP SOBAT! Nese wobbles, Fenix brings him around to wrench, but Daivari gets on the apron! Fenix runs Daivari off, but Nese runs in! Fenix DUMPS Nese out onto Daivari! The fans fire up and Fenix builds speed to FLY! Down go ALL the Premier Athletes!

The fans are thunderous for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” while Sterling panics. Fenix rises, and he puts Nese in. The fans rally behind Fenix as he climbs. Fenix reaches the top rope, but Sterling gets on the apron! So Fenix tightrope walk PENALTY KICKS him down! But Nese rolls Fenix! SOBAT HEEL KICK! Nese goes up and up and PREMIER 450! Cover, TWO!! Nese is furious that Fenix survives but the fans are thunderous! Nese drags himself over and brings Fenix up. Nese pump handles, lifts, but Fenix slips free and SUPERKICKS! Nese leans against ropes, Fenix goes up, tightrope PENALTY KICK! Fenix goes up to FROG SPLASH! Cover, Fenix wins!

Winner: Rey Fenix, by pinfall

It was practically 4v1 but Fenix still wins out! Will this momentum help Fenix head after whatever championship he wants after All In?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He welcomes us back to the ESports Stadium, and welcomes in two men AEW loves, it’s FTR! The fans fire up as Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood make their way out, having made their return just last week to help Tommy Billington against The Don Callis Family. FTR joins Schiavone in the ring and he brings up that big return to stand up to the Don Callis Family. Thankfully they did, so he asks their thoughts. Cash says if you ask him, Dynamite Kid Tommy Billington has one of the brightest futures in wrestling today, and they weren’t gonna let the Don Callis Family walk all over him.

But Cash also wants to talk FTR. It is no secret that the past two years has been the greatest run in their careers. The fans cheer that! Schiavone says the fans agree with Cash, and Cash says he thinks so, too. But while this was something Cash didn’t wanna talk about, when FTR was told they had time to talk tonight, he figured he should get it off his chest. It is no secret that Cash has been going through personal stuff that has dragged his name through the mud, is a cloud over his head, and he has had more stress than he could ever tell us all. Every single night, when he came out here, that was his escape.

This is where Cash could forget all that other crap, even when it wasn’t true. Every week, night after night, the fans helped Cash get through that. All that out there didn’t matter to him! It only mattered that he wrestled every match like it was his last, because he didn’t know if it was gonna be his last. So it isn’t a secret that Cash is a hot head, but it won’t happen outside this ring. Now the only people FTR has their eyes set on are The Young Bucks! So maybe, just maybe, time to go Buck Hunting!

Dax tells Schiavone that 2022 and 2023 were good times for FTR fans. FOUR world tag titles, THREE incredible matches with The Briscoes, and 58 MINUTES with Bullet Club Gold in Calgary. And the cherry on top: Beating the Bucks in front of 80 THOUSAND people in Wembley Stadium. But now, this is the present, and their win-loss record isn’t so great. Back in April, Dax had a serious back injury that he thought he wasn’t gonna come back from. But what really bothered him was The Bucks leap-frogging FTR as the best tag team in the world, and that didn’t sit well with him. The fans boo, they don’t like it either.

Dax says six weeks ago, he was sent home to rehab. He watched Collision, Dynamite and Rampage, all in hopes that “our EVPs, our fearless leaders,” would take this tag division back to the top and take it to the Promised Land. Dax was so let down. In six weeks, we haven’t seen The Bucks defend their titles. The fans boo that, too. Dax says maybe, just maybe, this is a big mistake. But starting next week, here in Arlington, Texas, FTR’s road to the AEW World Tag Team Championships begins. FTR starts their road back, and it ends at Wembley Stadium at All In!

And Dax knows sometimes he is rough to deal with, a little abrasive. But if you’ll give him a little grace, a little love, he promises FTR will give you all every bit of passion, love, tears, sweat and whatever else, so that they will become the THREE-TIME AEW World Tag Team Champions! The fans chant for “F T R! F T R!” and Dax tells The Bucks, “This whole thing’s for you. Top Guys, Out!” Just as AEW starts on the homestretch to All In 2024, FTR want to hit it out of the park! Will they get their shot at Matthew & Nicholas? Or are they overlooking The Acclaimed and their own shot at the gold?

 

Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida.

Lexy Nair is with the Shining Samurai and brings up the match tonight. Shida says stop, stop, stop. She came here for a fight, is still looking for a fight, and she wants to fight! Shida wants a fight… with DOCTOR BRITT BAKER!! Welcome back, by the way. And now Britt just wants to be TBS Champion? Get in line! Or does Britt not remember that Shida made her bleed once before? Shida will do it again this Wednesday on Dynamite: Blood & Guts! There could be a lot more blood than TBS bargained for, but will Shida make sure All In’s card is subject to change?

BREAKING NEWS for next week!

Battle of the Belts returns for the 11th edition, following live after Collision! What championships will be on the line as AEW continues towards All In?

 

Dustin Rhodes & The Von Erichs speak.

Kevin Von Erich says it is so great to be here in Texas with his sons and his friend. This is a great night. Kevin remembers working with Dusty, and he learned so much from him. There will never be another like him. Wrestling is changing, there are a lot of differences. Dustin knows, he’s been here a long time, so he can be a real benefit to Marshall & Ross. Dustin thanks Kevin, and says he watched Kevin for years, learned so much from his own father, and he is sure the storm has arrived. One of the greatest wrestling legacies right here in Texas! The Von Erichs, the Rhodes, together for the first time since 1978!

Dustin looks forward to this, and promises that if they listen and watch, they’ll head down a path that is already great. They’ve seen this trio in action before, so believe him when he says, Dustin’s got your back. Will Dustin & The Von Erichs make a natural fit here in AEW?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now here we are in the Dog Days of Summer 2024, it’s hot as balls outside, and lemme tell you what else is heating up, the schedule for the ROH World Champion. Got a busy week next week. Next Friday, right here in Arlington, Texas, it’s ROH Death Before Dishonor, Mark Briscoe, Roderick Strong, for the ROH World title!” Mark tells Roddy that they’ve known each other a good long time now, came up in the game together. But Mark warns Roddy, Mark’s gotten wiser since last time. He’s gotten tougher since the last time! So Roddy better be ready! That’s Friday!

But after Friday, one thing’s for certain is that two days ago it was Wednesday! And let’s talk about Wednesday! Blood & Guts! Nashville, Tennessee! Team AEW VS The Elite. Let’s explain something to The Elite: pro-wrestling runs parallel to society in so many ways. And The Elite is the perfect example of what is wrong in the world today. They’re powerful, privileged, and they think they can step on the little man, step on the grind. But Team AEW represents the grind worldwide! Bring yo’ ass, because Mark will be disappointed if they don’t bring the fight! Let’s get violent, baby! RARARARA!

Christian promised his family they’d have championships together, and it would seem his promise came true! The lights flicker, but they stay up. Was that just a glitch? Or is there something Christian is overlooking?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision here to start the “Road to Wembley” series in the ESports Stadium. The stage and ramp look great, but this new theme song they’re using instead of Elton John is not a good song. It has like marching band drums but still tries to be rock ‘n’ roll, they need to scrap it and try again. That aside, Darby VS Mortos was a great opener, and Darby of course won to bring momentum into Blood & Guts. Good promo from Darby to officially challenge Jack Perry for the TNT Championship, you can bet that’s happening. A shame for Skye Blue getting hurt tonight, but taking a crossbody from that high up is hard to judge. Hopefully the injury isn’t too severe. But good promo from Shida after to call out Britt, that’ll be a great match for Dynamite.

Great match from Fenix and Nese, and great win for Fenix, even if that was the extent of things. Great debut for Hologram/Holo.grm, formerly Aramis in AAA. He got to show a lot of what he can do, and even then I think there’s even more in his arsenal he held back. Great match from Roddy VS Ishii but I should’ve figured Taven & Bennett would show up to help Roddy win. Mark and Kyle running out there was logical, and no Cassidy was curious. It subtly builds that new moodiness to Cassidy, given he was in his more negative, dark denim and Pixies song mood on Dynamite. But great promo from Mark to hype up Blood & Guts as well as Death Before Dishonor.

Likewise, great promo from The Acclaimed with Billy making them get serious. Angry Acclaimed could make for some interesting stuff, especially if they kept it up towards their title match. Speaking of, FTR had a great promo but them setting a goal for another match with The Bucks at All In, I guess I was right to think that was the plan all along. Battle of the Belts 11 is coming so maybe that’s where we get Bucks VS Acclaimed? If that’s the case, then it feels like a given that Bucks win to go on to All In, which is a shame for The Acclaimed. Very good promo from Jericho to call out Suzuki, though I don’t think it added anything. They’re maybe leaning a little too hard into Jericho always needing TV time no matter the show, but whatever.

Good promo from Dusty & The Von Erichs, but did they really need to wait until AEW was back in Texas to get that trio going again? Well, given who the new trios champs are, I wouldn’t mind seeing Dusty & The Von Erichs going after The Patriarchy, especially with the obvious “Christian can bring up Dusty” promo waiting to be used. The trios championship match was great stuff, and they did a really good job making us think Bang Bang Gang was gonna win. But being Heels, Christian & The Patriarchy of course won via cheating. The flickering lights were a very subtle nod to The House of Black, but I would’ve preferred just a full tease, maybe just The House applauding from the tron and saying they’ll see Christian soon. And with Kip Sabian watching backstage, I feel like maybe Kip is the third man while Buddy Murphy is away.

My Score: 8.8/10

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Arkady Aura is with Saraya & Harley Cameron, and says we haven’t seen Saraya wrestle since her first round loss in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Harley speaks up and asks how that’s supposed to be Saraya’s fault. Why point the finger of blame at her? Maybe it is this company’s fault! Because Saraya has been spending this whole time training, getting “Wembley Ready,” and being an unproblematic icon! Saraya says Harley is right, and do you know why? Because AEW is scared of Saraya. The AEW Women’s Division is scared of her! Because she is the living legend, she understands.

Last year at All In, Saraya had the world at her feet! Now, they’re just keeping her off the show. Harley says doing All In Wembley without Saraya is like doing Beverly Hills Cop without Eddie Murphy! Saraya says yeah, that’s why they’re keeping her away. But they can’t do the show without her because she IS the show. All roads lead to Wembley, baby, and it doesn’t matter who she has to step on to get there. Then just who will The Outcasts take out in order to have their moment?

 

Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Bryan Keith VS The Outrunners!

While The Learning Tree has to defend that “For The World” Championship this Wednesday on Dynamite, he and The Redwood are not shying away from competition. Will Jericho & Bill show the world they’re not afraid of big bad Minoru Suzuki? Or will Turbo Floyd & Truth Magnum be the ones to teach The Learning Tree a thing or two?

The teams sort out and Bill starts against Truth. The fans rally, Truth gets around to headlock, but Bill powers up to TOSS Truth away! Truth flounders to his corner, Turbo tags in, and Turbo steps up to Bill. Jericho isn’t even taking this match seriously, he’s checking his phone! Bill knees Turbo low, CLUBS him down, but Truth tags back in. Truth runs and leaps, but Bill catches him! Bill grins, gives a thumbs up, then SLAMS Truth down! Bill says the fans know what’s up. But then Turbo tags in and The Outrunners DOUBLE CLUB Bill! Bill just frowns…! Bill turns around, he runs up, but The Outrunners dodge to DOUBLE DROPKICK!

Bill stays up but The Outrunners fire up. They spin and handshake, while flexing! Bill frowns, Truth sees and warns Turbo. Turbo looks and Bill DECKS him! Bill DECKS Truth, too! Bill then runs to BOOT Truth out of the ring! Turbo staggers up, Jericho keeps checking his phone, but Turbo CHOPS! Bill sighs and Turbo begs for mercy. Bill puts Turbo in a corner, CHOPS him, then CHOPS again! And he fires off haymaker after haymaker! Bill laughs as he stomps a mudhole into Turbo! The ref counts but Bill keeps going! Bill lets off, laughs some more, and Jericho says look out. Truth CHOPS Bill, but then he begs for forgiveness.

Bill powers Truth to a corner with one hand! Then he runs to SPLASH Turbo! SPLASH for Truth, SPLASH for Turbo! BOOT for Truth, and then Bill choke grips Turbo. SKYSCRAPER CHOKE SLAM!! And then he tags Jericho! Jericho smirks and waves to the fans. “Hi, guys~!” Cover, Jericho & Bill win!

Winners: Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey, by pinfall

Bad Apple Keith kicks Truth out of the ring, then he stands tall with his guys. Keith tells the Outrunners to respect Chris Jericho, but he and Bill won’t be around to help Jericho on Wednesday. Will Jericho be able to survive Minoru Suzuki in the shadow of Blood & Guts? Or will Suzuki tear down The Learning Tree #ForTheWorld?

Wait, speaking of Suzuki, here he comes! He has his own match tonight, but he wants to look Jericho in the eye one more time before Dynamite. Will the Meanest Man in the World make an example out of The Butcher?

Minoru Suzuki VS The Butcher!

Rampage returns and The Butcher is already in the ring. The bell rings and Butcher talks some smack on Suzuki. Butcher then fires a forearm, but Suzuki comes back with a forearm of his own. Butcher RAMS Suzuki into a corner, the ref counts, but Butcher lets off at 4. Suzuki eggs Butcher on but Butcher pie faces Suzuki. Butcher dares Suzuki to bring it, so Suzuki fires off fast hands and forearms! Suzuki ROCKS Butcher in the corner, then goes corner to corner, so he can BOOT! Butcher staggers, Suzuki snapmares him, then runs to PENALTY- NO! Butcher blocks the kick! Butcher CLUBS the leg, then trips Suzuki.

Butcher has a standing toehold as he traps one of Suzuki’s legs. Suzuki just eggs Butcher on! Butcher stomps the leg, drops an elbow on it, then he drags Suzuki up. Butcher CLUBS Suzuki, but Suzuki just snarls. Butcher CHOPS, but Suzuki isn’t impressed. Butcher CHOPS again, Suzuki eggs him on, so Butcher fires more CHOPS! Suzuki just laughs! Butcher ROCKS Suzuki, kicks low, then kicks again. Butcher reels Suzuki in to suplex high and hard! Cover, TWO! The fans rally for Suzuki and he fires body shots on Butcher. Suzuki ROCKS Butcher, but Butcher HEADBUTTS! Butcher vows to break Suzuki’s back!

Butcher half nelsons, but Suzuki slips around to waistlock. Butcher elbows free, runs, but Suzuki follows, drop steps to get around, and has the SLEEPER! Suzuki wrangles Butcher, squeezes tight, but Butcher endures. Suzuki spins Butcher around and reels him in, and the fans fire up for the Gotch Lift! Butcher’s big, but Suzuki still lifts him, holds him up, and then PILEDRIVERS!! Cover, Suzuki wins!

Winner: Minoru Suzuki, by pinfall

A gritty fight for Suzuki and Butcher, and this was in a normal match! What won’t Suzuki do to Jericho when it is FTW Rules?

 

The Conglomeration speaks.

Mark Briscoe says, “For those of you who may or may not have been living under a rock for the past couple months, you are looking at the group that has come to be known as The Conglomeration. You know about my main man with the game plan, OC, and Kyle O’Reilly. Let me introduce to you Tomohiro Ishii, henceforth to be known as Big Time! That’s right! Here in The Conglomeration, there is only two rules. First and foremost, you gotta be down to conglomerate. And secondly, you cannot in any way, shape or form, be a s*it head!” Kyle shrugs and nods, because it’s true.

Mark then says that brings us to the word of the day! The word of the day is… Discombobulation! Kyle asks the country of origin. American! Can he use it in a sentence? In the midst of Mark’s discombobulation, Roderick Strong cracked him in the jaw with a knee, and stood over him, holding up Mark’s ROH World Championship high in the air! Now that done pissed Mark off, Roddy! He’s known Roddy a long time, and Roddy knows better than that! So next week, Death Before Dishonor, Mark has something for Roddy!

But before that, tomorrow night’s Collision, #BigTime Ishii is going to take Roddy on 1v1! No Kingdom, no Conglomeration, and damn sure no Don Callis Family at ringside! Roddy VS Ishii, and we’ll show y’all how we do in The Conglomeration! Because they’re ’bout to RARARARARA!! The Chicken is all fired up, but will the Stone Pitbull be able to take a big bite out of the Savior of the Backbreaker?

 

Kris Statlander w/ Stokely Hathaway VS Sydni Winnell!

The Galaxy’s Greatest Traitor knows The Babe with the Power wants payback on her just as badly as she wants to run Willow’s life. But while Willow went and won the CMLL Women’s World Championship, Kris has just been grumbling and plotting with Big Stoke. Will Kris make an example out of Sydni tonight? Or will the Heart of Hutchinson, Kansas be unbreakable?

The bell rings and Kris DISCUS LARIATS right away! Stoke fires up but the fans are torn as Kris hauls Sydni back up. Kris ROCKS Sydni, CHOPS her, then fires off haymakers in the corner! The ref counts, Kris stomps a mudhole in, then she digs her boots in. The ref counts, Kris gets in his face about it, then goes back to Sydni. Kris drags Sydni up to snap suplex! Sydni flounders but Stokely smiles. Kris runs corner to corner, UPPERCUTS, then goes side to side, but Sydni ELBOWS her! Sydni fires forearm snow and has Kris in a corner! The fans fire up, Sydni fires up, and she whips. Kris reverses to then scoop and pop Sydni around!

Kris tucks Sydni in for STATURDAY NIGHT FEVER!! Cover, Kris wins!

Winner: Kris Statlander, by pinfall

As Stokely says, every night is #StaturdayNight, especially when Kris wins like that. She has Stoke stand on her while she does push-ups just to show off, but will Kris be ready when Willow returns with a vengeance?

 

Holo.grm loads up.

Whoever this mysterious masked man is, he is ready, and he promises that tomorrow night on Collision, we will see him debut! Will Holo.grm prove to be more than meets the eye?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

Collision is already stacked with Strong VS Ishii, Holo.grm’s debut, and the Unified World Trios Championship match, The Patriarchy VS The Bang Bang Gang, but Skye Blue’s challenge to Hikaru Shida has been answered! Will the Shining Samurai cut through the Chicago Skye to find her way back to the top of the ranks? We’ll also see Darby Allin return to action against The Beast Mortis! Will The Relentless One sharpen his edge for Blood & Guts? Plus, the Lumberjack match has been made official! Thunder Rosa VS Deonna Purrazzo, with other AEW stars all around ringside, will this be where La Mera Mera and The Virtuosa finally settle the score?

 

The Lucha Brothers w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Private Party!

Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix are looking to get in on the tag title chase, but so are Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy. While The Acclaimed still have to shoot their shot at The Young Bucks, which team will be waiting for them on the other side?

Quen steps up to Penta, and Penta says uno momento. Penta dramatically takes off his glove, but Quen says no, let him. “SHOTS! SHOTS!” Penta says okay, listen! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Quen, so Quen comes back to say “SHOTS!” “CERO! MIEDO!” “SHOTS!” They go back and forth, taunt for taunt, then Penta CHOPS! Quen is stinging but he composes himself. Quen comes back, CHOPS, but that hurts his hand more than it does Penta’s body! Penta says okay, and he unbuttons Quen’s shirt, to CHOP him down! The fans fire up with Penta as he does a “SHOTS! SHOTS!” dance! So Quen returns to fire forearms!

Quen ROCKS Penta, runs, but Penta SUPERKICKS! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs but Quen BOOTS him down! Quen nods, runs up, but DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Both men stay up, Penta blocks a kick to HEEL KICK, only for Quen to ROUNDHOUSE back! Both men wobble, then they DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSE! Both men fall and the fans fire back up! Quen and Penta crawl, hot tags to Zay and Fenix! Fenix ROCKS Zay, Zay ROCKS Fenix, and Fenix fires off a strike fest! Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” But Zay wrenches out to facelock back! But Fenix fights the suplex, wrenches out, and KICKS Zay!

Fenix reels Zay in, but then Zay wrenches out. Zay reels Fenix back in, but Fenix wrenches out to mule kick. Fenix reels Zay in, “ANIMO!” but Zay wrenches out to ROCK Fenix! Zay eggs Fenix on, pie faces, and he fires a forearm! Fenix fires back, they go back and forth, and the fans rally up. Fenix and Zay huff ‘n’ puff, and they keep throwing shots! Zay gets the edge, but Fenix returns in kind! Rampage returns to single picture as they both throw forearms at the same time, again and again! It is fast and furious and the fans love it! Penta runs in just to BLAST Quen! The Lucha Bros mug Zay, double whip, but Quen is there for some SILLY STRONG!

Penta flounders out, Quen HOTSHOTS Fenix! Zay brings Fenix around, Quen goes up, AFTER PARTY STOMPS! Quen goes up and up to ESCALARA SENTON onto Penta! Zay SWANTON BOMBS Fenix! Cover, TWO!! Fenix survives and shocks Zay! The fans rally up and Zay brings Fenix up. Tag to Quen, and Private Party puts Fenix up top. Quen runs up, GIN- NO, Fenix holds onto the corner and Quen tumbles!

Quen drags Fenix up but Fenix CHOPS! Fenix eggs Quen on so Quen stomps away on him! Quen drags Fenix up, reels him in, but Fenix wrenches out to underhook and BUTTERFLY ANARCHY! Cover, TWO!! Fenix tags Penta and they aim at Zay. DOUBLE SUPERKICKS!

Quen is alone, “UNO! DOS! TRES!” DOUBLE SUPERKICKS for him, too! Then Penta drags Quen up and Fenix goes up! Tuck and “CERO! MIEDO!” LB PILEDRIVER!! Then Fenix DIVES onto Zay for good measure! Penta covers, Lucha Brothers win!

Winners: The Lucha Brothers, by pinfall

Private Party put up a fight to be sure, but Penta y Fenix just wanted it that much more! Will the Lucha Brothers be watching Blood & Guts very, very closely?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of Rampage here, and even the squash matches served some purpose. Kris crushing Sydni was mostly for momentum, but it felt like that was the first real showing of Kris’ Heel attitude with her trash talking the whole time. Jericho letting Bill do all the work against The Outrunners was naturally how that match was going, but it works perfectly in character and story for them. And Jericho crossing paths with Suzuki before Suzuki puts Butcher away rather quickly was good, too. The go home math is therefore even ahead of their FTW Championship match, but I wonder if Jericho was texting someone who could interfere for him since Keith & Bill can’t. But it can’t be Jeff Cobb, though, he’s locked in for NJPW’s G1 Climax.

Very good promo from The Outcasts, and while Toni Storm VS Mariah May is one title match and Mercedes Mone VS Britt Baker is another, Saraya could end up putting out an open challenge and it is answered by someone big from Stardom or CMLL for a first-time-ever kind of match to make All In even more historic. Great tag team main event from Lucha Brothers VS Private Party, with it mostly being for momentum. Private Party has finally been back on track now that both guys are healthy, but Lucha Bros winning out made sense. Penta & Fenix have been great as a team and as individuals, they’re both primed to take on just about any team or even singles champs if needed.

And great opener from The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom, even though I’m surprised they did such a Six Man Tag already. The Conglomeration winning could still feed into my idea that Cassidy & Kyle get an ROH Tag Team Championship match at Death Before Dishonor, but it also gives us a reason for Ishii VS Roddy tomorrow night. Great promo from Mark Briscoe in that, too, he continues to be one of the best underappreciated promo guys in all of wrestling today. I feel like Mark is going to retain the title against Roddy given how Shane Taylor is gunning for Mark, but that really depends on if Tony Khan is even paying attention to his own shows.

My Score: 8.7/10
