Adam Cole VS Christian Cage!

The leader of the Elite (in Kenny Omega’s absence) is chasing another shot at the AEW World Champion, but he has to go through Captain Charisma first! Who wins this first-time-ever singles showdown and strengthens their spot in the standings?

The bell rings and Boston fires up. Cole and Christian hear the dueling chants, then slowly circle. They tie up, go around, and Cole pushes Christian back only for Christian to put Cole in a corner. The ref counts as Christian digs his forearms in, but he lets off at 4. Cole keeps his cool and they circle again. They tie up, Christian gets around to waistlock and he drags Cole down. Christian floats to a facelock, but Cole slips out to one of his own. Christian fights up, wrenches to a headlock, but Cole powers up, only for Christian to hold tight. Cole fights back up, throws body shots, then powers out of the headlock, only for Christian to run him over!

Cole gets up in a huff and fans fire up again. Christian and Cole reset, feel things out, but Cole kicks low! Cole DECKS Christian, then brings him up to DECK him again! Cole bumps Christian off buckles, stomps away on him, then digs his boots in. The ref counts, Cole lets off at 4 and argues with the ref. Fans cheer and jeer but Cole soaks it all up. Cole goes back for Christian, scoops but Christian slips out. Christian wants the chicken wings but Cole slips away! Cole gets out of the ring but Christian keeps cool, coming that close to the Killswitch. But Cole gets up and SPITS at Christian! Then he runs away!

Christian cuts Cole off at the pass and CLOBBERS him! Fans fire up again and Christin stands Cole up to CHOP him against railing! They go around the way, Christian CHOPS Cole again! And again! They go in the ring, Christian CHOPS Cole in a corner! Christian puts Cole up top, ROCKS him, then climbs up, only for Cole to slip out and SUPERKICK the legs! Christian is in the Tree of Woe, Cole hammers and stomps him down! MULE KICK to the face! Christian falls out of the Tree and bails out of the ring, but now Cole pursues. Cole whips Christian into railing! And then into steel steps! Christian tumbles up and over, and Cole stands on the steps to soak up the heat!

Dynamite goes picture in picture as Cole watches Christian like a vulture. Cole then hops down, drags Christian up and whips him into railing! Cole tells the ref to cool off, and he refreshes the count to bring Christian back up and in. Cole then rains down rights, then sits Christian up to jam a knee into his back! Cole clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Christian down, but Christian endures. Fans rally, Christian fights up and he throws body shots. Christian ROCKS Cole, runs, but Cole CLOBBERS him with an elbow! Cole dusts off his hands, then stands on Christian at the ropes! The ref counts, and Cole steps off at 4.

Cole drags Christian back up, turns him, and hits a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Cole sits Christian up to clamp on another chinlock and Christian endures again. Christian fights up as fans rally. Christian throws more body shots but Cole kicks low. Dynamite returns to single picture, and Cole runs, but Christian TOSSES him out! Christian hurries up top and he LEAPS over the corner to CROSSBODY Cole! Both men are down and fans fire up! The ring count climbs, Cole and Christian crawl at 5 of 10. They get in at 6, then head for each other. Christian ROCKS Cole but Cole ROCKS him back! Christian fires off again, but Cole gives it back!

Christian UPPERCUTS, but Cole ENZIGURIS! Cole stomps Christian on his way to the corner, and Cole climbs up. Cole leaps, but into BOOTS! Christian climbs up to rain down fists, and he goes right to 10! Christian then shoves Cole, mule kicks and FLYING SUNSET FLIPS! Cover, TWO! Christian ROCKS Cole with another uppercut, whips but Cole reverses. Cole misses in the corner, SWING KICK! Christian goes up, FLYING TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO! Fans rally up and Cole wants mercy? Christian runs in but into a knee! But then he ducks the enziguri! Christian gets the arms, but Cole shoves free!

Christian mule kicks again, goes up, but into a DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO! Christian is still in this and Cole is getting frustrated. Fans rally up, Cole tells Christian off, but Christian catches him for a cradle! TWO, and Christian blocks superkick and spins Cole into a REVERSE DDT! Christian hurries up top, DIVING HEADBUTT FLOPS! Cole mule kicks, then SUPERKICKS! Cole runs, SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO! Christian survives and Cole can’t believe it! Fans fire up as both men slowly rise. Cole throws a forearm, Christian uppercuts, repeat! Fans duel as the two stand, Christian fires off more uppercuts!

Christian stands on Cole now! Then he slingshots to UPPERCUT! Cole staggers, Christian goes up, and leaps into a SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!! Christian survives and shocks Cole! Cole hurries up the corner, he aims at Christian, but Christian SHORYUKENS! Then he goes up, SUPER STEINER! Cover, TWO! Cole is still in this, but Christian doesn’t lose focus. Christian aims from a corner, he wants to go Rated R! But he runs into a mule kick! Cole hurries back up, aims again, PANAMA- NO! Christina pops him up and over, but Cole BOOTS him down! The kneepad comes down and Cole runs, but Christian ducks! Roll-up, TWO!!

Christian SPEARS outta nowhere! Cover, TWO!! And fans are thunderous with a standing ovation! Christian fires himself up as fans rally for “A E DUB!” Christian has the arms, but Cole hooks the ropes! Christian lets go but the ref keep shim back. Cole thumb’s Christian in the eye! Cole hits the BOOM!! Cover, Cole wins!

Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall

And here comes reDRagon to beat up on Christian! But then Jurassic Express rush out! Jungle Boy goes after Kyle, Luchasaurus is after Fish! Christian helps out, they have this 3v2 now! They fight up the ramp and to the stage, but Cole is all alone. Cole figures he’ll just get outta here, but here comes HANGMAN! The Cowboy is storming out but Cole tells us all that they need to stop. Cole is not fighting Hangman until the title is on the line again! Hangman is afraid of Cole! Cole just beat a legend, and he’ll whoop Hangman’s ass any day of the week!

Hangman gets right in the ring, snatches the mic right outta Cole’s hands, and shouts, “So you wanna title match, huh?! You want a championship match, huh?! You want another match with Hangman, huh?! Look at me when I’m talking to you!” Adam and Adam get in each other’s face here, and fans are fired up! Hangman says after last week, Cole realized he couldn’t just steal the title. But fine, Hangman will give Cole another match, and it’ll serve as his punishment. Because unless he is mistaken, they have a live Rampage in Texas. So the match Cole thinks he wants so bad won’t just be a normal match and it won’t be on Cole’s terms. It’ll be in a TEXAS DEATHMATCH!!

Fans are thunderous again because we’re going to see some serious #CowboySh*t! Hangman tells Cole he has a week left. If Hangman were him, he’d get his affairs in order. Adam VS Adam II, AEW World Championship Texas Deathmatch, will things be bigger and deadlier in Texas?


AEW shares what happened at ROH Supercard of Honor.

After Jonathan Gresham won and became the undisputed ROH World Champion, Jay Lethal came out and said that in return for what Lethal did for Gresham’s career, it is only fair that Lethal is his next challenger. Gresham said Lethal has changed. But Lethal says no one would know who Gresham is without Lethal! Sonjay Dutt came out to try and stop these two from fighting, but then Sonjay DECKS the Octopus! They mugged Gresham, but then SAMOA JOE returned to ROH! He got in Lethal’s face, and then put Sonjay to sleep! And not only is Joe back in ROH, he is now ALL ELITE!!

Owen Hart Memorial Men’s Tournament Qualifier: Samoa Joe VS Max Caster w/ Anthony Bowens!

Boston is going nuts seeing the Samoan Submission Machine makes his way out to the ring! But to rain on everyone’s parade with a diss track is Platinum Max! “I’ma lay this dude down like a sex position. I’m Main Event Max, Joe’s X Division. So I’m sending you home. You’re not a tough guy, Joe, you just injury prone. And I’m bad for your health. Got that towel cuz you can’t stop playin’ with yourself! And Tony, why’d we give this guy a chance? When we beat them in the ratings, he was their champ!” Joe can’t help but shrug, that last part is true. Bowens says, BOSTOOOOON~! The Acclaimed have arrived!” But will they be leaving left out of the tournament?

The bell rings and the fans of course sing, “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” Caster says no he won’t. Caster talks trash to Joe, but the problem is when he pokes Joe in the chest. Caster gets closer and Joe HEADBUTTS him! Joe then JABS, JABS and JABS until Caster’s down in the corner, so Joe just stomps him! Joe breaks it down with some dance moves, then he JABS Caster more! Joe grins then whips Caster corner to corner hard, to then back body block, and PELE! Caster drops to his knees clutching his head, but Joe brings him up. Caster throws hands, but Joe knees low and snapmares to CHOP him on the back!

Joe KICKS Caster down, then runs to drop an elbow! Caster bails out, regroups with Bowens, and fans fire up as Joe DIVES! Direct hit on Caster! Fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” as he drags Caster up. Bowens talks trash so Joe steps to him. Caster sucker punches Joe! Caster CLUBS away on Joe, fires off more in the ring, then ROCKS him with a forearm! Caster back hands, but Joe doesn’t even flinch. Joe CLOBBERS Caster with an elbow! Joe puts Caster up top, tuck shim in, and yes, he brings out the MUSCLE BUSTER! Cover, Joe wins!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by pinfall (advances to the Owen Hart Memorial Tournament)

And the first man in this inaugural bracket is perhaps the most dangerous man in both ROH and AEW! But wait, Jay Lethal and Sonjay Dutt are on the tron, and they’re telling Joe to calm down. There’s a reason they’re in the back. They won’t rain on his parade or ruin his moment. They’re not going to do what he did to them at Supercard. Lethal and Sonjay have more class. They respect him more than he respects them, which is hard considering the fact that last week, these two changed their outlooks in life. Lethal’s new outlook: say and do whatever the hell he wants! And he wonders, would he have that same outlook if Joe just answered his damn phone?

Because for four months, Lethal tried to call his teacher, his mentor, for some advice. And Joe never answered. Now Joe is here, so he has a phone. But the problem is, he only ever answers the phone for billionaires. That is the real problem. Joe’s first shirt here should say, “The Samoan Gold Digger.” Sonjay likes that one! But Lethal is even more upset that he didn’t know Joe would be here! Lethal respects Joe enough to roll out the red carpet and get him a cake! Sonjay says they can still do that, though. Yeah, that’s true. It’s not too late! Next week, they’ll get Joe a present so big and grand, it’ll embody their love and show their respect for Joe.

Next week, New Orleans, Joe’s number one student gets him a gift that he’ll never forget. See you there! Joe isn’t quite sure what that’ll be, but will Joe be more focused on winning the Owen Hart Tournament as the #1 seed?


Tony Schiavone interviews Blackpool Combat Club.

Schiavone announces that for this Friday’s Rampage, Bryan Danielson is taking on Trent Beretta while Jon Moxley takes on the NEW ROH Pure Champion, Wheeler Yuta! William Regal says he is off his nut with excitement, because the BCC will definitely be on a rampage. The perfect wrestler, Bryan Danielson, taking on the perfectly talented Trent, Regal feels sorry for the poor lad. And then, Yuta, who has impressed both Regal and Bryan greatly, is gotta impress the hardest of all to impress. Young Wheeler won’t know if it’s daylight, moonlight, or Fanny by the gaslight once Moxley’s done with him.

Moxley says, “The forecast for this Friday night on Rampage: the sound of bones cracking like thunder, and raining blood.” The Maniac is more than ready to mangle Yuta, but will the Decoder prove he’s ready to join this club?


Shawn Spears VS Capt. Shawn Dean!

The grudge between Chairman and Captain goes back a bit, especially here in AEW. MJF joins commentary for this, because he promised Spears will win one for the Pinnacle. Will Maxwell Jacob Friedman be proven right? Or will the Captain capitalize on the turmoil within the faction?

The bell rings, the two circle and Spears shouts out to MJF. Spears and Dean tie up, Spears waistlocks but Dean switches. Spears switches back to scoop and BACKBREAKER! Spears mocks the salute while fans boo. MJF puts the “Canadian God” over as Spears stomps Dean. Spears drags Dean up to TOSS him out hard! Dean crashes down but fans rally up for him. Spears goes out, he points out the AEW security posters for Wardlow and he smears his boots on the picture. Fans still chant for “WARD~LOW!” as Spears puts Dean in. Spears CHOPS Dean in a corner, then soaks up the heat before he swings again. Dean dodges to CHOP back!

Dean CHOPS Spears again, and again! Dean whips but Spears reverses and kicks low. Spears then pump handles to give Dean a PACKAGE NECKBREAKER! Cover, but Spears lets off? MJF says Spears is playing with his food, but fans boo. Spears waits as Dean gets up slowly, then reels him in for the fireman’s carry! Fans still chant for Wardlow, and look out! Cameras spot something going on in the back. The security staff is all beat to hell! MJF is freaking out but he should know by now what’s going on! Spears sets Dean down to look around. Is he coming? Is Wardlow in Boston? HE IS! And he TOSSES more security, dribbles one against lockers, then TOSSES another!

Wardlow storms his way out and is coming through the crowd! MJF wants security to do them damn jobs, but they just get CLOBBERED time and again! Wardlow DECKS one, RAMS another into the railing, and is ringside! The bigger guards stop Wardlow, but Dean rolls up Spears! DEAN WINS!

Winner: Shawn Dean, by pinfall

Wardlow says that’s what MJF gets! Dean once again has a win over The Pinnacle, will he parlay this into bigger opportunities? And as for MJF and Spears, if they can’t keep Wardlow away, what’s going to happen with their win-loss records?


Tony Schiavone interviews Best Friends.

Chuck Taylor, Trent Beretta, Orange Cassidy, and new ROH Pure Champion, Wheeler Yuta, are here after hearing from Blackpool Combat Club and those match-ups on Rampage. Chuckie T speaks up, because he wants to talk with Wheeler. Wheeler knows the Kentucky Gentleman loves him, Cassidy loves him, and they helped train him and got him here. They bought him the tights he’s wearing. Yes, they know Wheeler wants to be the best wrestler he can, but there’s nothing saying he can’t do that with Best Friends.

But Trent says he doesn’t love Wheeler, Wheeler is a scumbag traitor. We all saw Bryan beat Wheeler’s ass last week, so watch what Trent does to Bryan this week, maybe even take notes. Learn something form the guys he’s gonna turn his back on. Trent pushes Wheeler, Wheeler tells Trent not to touch him. He doesn’t want Chuck touching him, either. Wheeler storms off, is Trent only making Wheeler’s departure a guarantee?


Sammy Guevara and Tay Conti are here!

And Sammy has his cue cards! Dynamite is picture in picture as the lovebirds work together. “Hey PLOP Team!” with a drawing of doodoo to make it clear what that means. “You’ve got more excuses than wins! Members! Or fans! How about we change your name? How does American Talk Team sound? That’s all you guys seem to do! Or… American Walk Team! After last week, I’m sure you’re doing a lot of that! By the way, I think we owe you some money.” Tay looks around in her pockets, and tada! One, two, three, four FIVE HUNDY! It’s that easy. Sammy then continues, “I think we owe you something else, too. Each and every one of you!

“While I have the record for another title shot, I want nothing more than sweet revenge. Sorry, we want nothing more than sweet revenge! And we won’t stop until we get it! Until then, we will keep breaking your crap!” Tay throws down the last card as the challenge has been issued, what will American Top Team have to say?


AEW shares footage from earlier tonight.

The Jericho Appreciation Society was brawling with Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz! Kingston slams Jericho into a door, Proud ‘n’ Powerful beat down Daniel Garcia and the duo formerly known as 2Point0! And then they all focus on Jericho! Jericho is sent into more doors, and then the JAS goes running when Kingston brings in a flat screen TV!! Kingston tosses it at the doors, and it busts up! Hager got the van for the JAS to run away! Kingston laughs as “Monkey” Ortiz still tries to chase after. This was just a sampler, what happens when Kingston, Santana & Ortiz get to give JAS the whole deal?


Wait, Kingston heads to the ring!

The Mad King says it’s time to talk now. Fans fire up for Kingston as he, Santana & Ortiz go out. No waiting for music, either! “Chris Jericho! You two faced coward!” Did you see them go running? Jericho and his association, on site! That means Jericho could be with his wife and kids, Kingston will come after him! The other two morons, Big Daddy or whatever, they could be with their families, Kingston will get them! Garcia, well… Kingston is laughing here. He knows where Garcia lives! Does he think Kingston won’t just show up at his house? ON SITE! Santana gets the mic now and he says, “Look at ’em! The Jericho BITCH Society strikes again!”

Those scrubs! They know, this is what they do! Bring the hardest fights to these dogs, because this is what they do! Ortiz tells “Christopher” that when he grows a pair and stops running, come see these three in Louisiana for a good ol’ fashioned Six Man! Or not, doesn’t matter. ON SITE, Christopher! ON SITE! Kingston says, “My dude, we’re going to be in New Orleans, and we’re gonna beat your ass Junkyard Dog and Bush league style, BITCH!” The challenge has been issued, the warning has been given, will JAS have no choice but to toughen up and get what’s coming to them?


Tony Schiavone introduces Mark Sterling & Jade Cargill!

Smart Mark and his client, the undefeated AEW TBS Champion, 29-0 and counting, are here in Boston. We are approaching possibly win number 30 in 30 matches, and Schiavone knows the baddies are here tonight. Jade says first of all, Tony, cut the sh*t! She is here to formally introduce her baddy section, THE baddy section. Cameramen, do your jobs! Jade’s girls are here, they’re so beautiful. But you see, a baddie is beautiful, confident and knows herself. And she can stand up here and tell all the slobs that she knows herself! Sterling says it was difficult to find good looking women in Boston, but Jade is such a hard worker, she persisted and managed to do it.

Sterling will also tell us that the one person not allowed in that section tonight for sure is Marina Shafir. She may be badass, but she ain’t a baddie. She trash! She might as well just be called Number 30 at this point. Jade is tired of all these MMA losers coming into this business. She is tired of all the wrestler rejects coming into her ring and her show. Sterling was concerned about Marina’s background and how she calls herself, “The Problem.” Jade says, “The Problem?” Well thankfully, Jade is the Problem Solver. Jade is confident as ever, but will that confidence break along with the streak when she takes The Problem head-on?


Backstage interview with MJF and Shawn Spears.

Alex Marvez notes they’re both clearly upset after what happened, but MJF tells him not to say Wardlow’s name. Spears says, “Oink oink, piggy! You wanna get involved, War Dog? You are pissing up the wrong tree, my friend!” MJF calms Spears down and says he’ll make this real simple. Wardlow, MJF prays you show up next week. Because there will be twice as many security guards, and twice as much pain. As far as Dean goes, oh salute the captain! Military man, huh? Thank you for your service, but MJF will do him one better.

Next week, Dean VS MJF II, and there will not be another upset win. But what there will be is a purple heart for Dean, because MJF will hurt him worse than he could ever have been hurt in combat! Now let’s get out of here. And someone fix that damn TV! This is a damn circus! The Pinnacle has issued warnings of their own now, but will they be able to make good on them?


Tables Tag Match: The Hardy Boyz VS The Butcher & The Blade!

Matt & Jeff are always ready to go extreme, especially if it’s for revenge! Will they DELETE Andy Williams & Braxton Sutter? Or will the fix be in again courtesy of the Andrade Family Office?

A thing of note: this is more like a table best of three match, where one team only wins when the other team has had both members crash through tables. And secondly, emphasize crash because there will be counting accidental breaks. An offensive maneuver has to send someone through the tables or it’s just wrecked wood!

As the mercenaries make their entrance, they’re already bring out the furniture! Three tables are put in the ring, and then Blade rips the legs off a fourth! The Hardys make their entrance now and they rush in! The table legs are weapons as the bell rings! That’s new! Butcher CLUBS Matt, Blade CLUBS Jeff! Blade puts Jeff in the ring and stomps him, then props one table up in a corner. Jeff hits Blade back with haymakers, whips, but Blade reverses. Jeff stops himself but Blade CLOBBERS him! Blade throws off his jacket and hat, runs in, but Jeff dodges! Blade CRASHES through, but thanks to the special rules, he’s still in the match!

Butcher scoops Matt and he aims for the timekeeper’s table! But Matt slips off! Then he uses a chair, only for Butcher to DECK Matt anyway! Butcher then gets in and he CLUBS Jeff! Butcher stops Jeff from setting anything up, then he brings the table around to make a ramp. Butcher waistlocks, but Jeff resists the suplex! Jeff fights, Matt gets in, and the Hardys mug Butcher! Fans chant “DELETE! DELETE!” DOUBLE DDT! Both Hardy Boyz position the table, then they drag Butcher over. Butcher is set on the table ramp, the Hardys rain down fists, then Jeff throws off his shift! Jeff goes to the corner, climbs up top, but Blade hurries to trip him up!

Matt rushes over but Blade shoulders into him! Blade reels Matt in, FISHERMAN SCREW! Blade and Butcher coordinate now, and they set the table in position. They suplex and SPEAR Jeff through the table! That’s one point for the AFO as Dynamite goes picture in picture!

Hardy fights off the mercs but they mug him 2v1! They knock Matt down, stomps him, then dig their boots in. They move that broken table aside and set up another. Blade stomps Matt down while Butcher positions the table. That’s a bit tricky but Blade helps out. Blade then goes after Matt, but Matt fights back! HOTSHOT and Blade goes down! The Hardys regroup but Butcher stomps Matt down! Butcher grabs the legless table and props it up against the ring. Butcher props Matt up against that, and then runs in from the ramp! But Matt dodges and Butcher CRASHES through! But much like Blade, it doesn’t count because it was his own doing.

Blade CHOPS Matt against railing and rakes Matt’s eyes! Blade then CHOPS Matt more! And more! Blade brings Matt around but Matt hits back. Blade rakes eyes again! Matt staggers about and swings blind, almost hitting a ref! Blade CLUBS Matt, puts him in the ring, and then he gets a chair. Blade stalks Matt but Jeff anchors Blade’s foot! Butcher CLUBS Jeff and RAMS him into steps, but Matt SMACKS Blade with the chair! Matt then SMACKS Butcher as he gets in the ring! Matt SMACKS Blade again, then clotheslines him out! Matt SMACKS Butcher again, and again, and again as Dynamite returns to single picture!

Fans chant “DELETE!” with every chair shot! Matt drags Butcher onto the table, rains down fists, and then he DECKS Blade as he gets back up. Matt hurries to go to the top rope, and fans fire up as he LEG DROPS Butcher through the table! All tied up, it’s just down to Matt and Blade! Fans fire up with “DELETE! DELETE!” as Matt aims from the apron. But Blade moves, Matt CRASHES through the table! Again, not an elimination but it sure hurts! Blade wants Butcher to get up, they can still finish this. Blade drags Matt up, and whips him into railing! Matt falls over, Blade and Butcher get another table set up.

Fans fire up as Blade stands Matt up for Butcher to ROCK with a haymaker! They then put Matt on that table near the corner. Blade goes up, but Matt fights. Butcher sends Matt over railing, then CLUBS him. Blade brings another chair over, they get Matt up against the railing, and they’re teetering on the edge! DOUBLE SUPERPLEX, but where’d the table go!? All three men just crash to the floor, as it turns out Jeff pulled the table away! And then Jeff uses Butcher to leap off and CLOBBER Blade into railing! Jeff kicks Butcher and hits him with an atomic drop! Leg splitting leg drop!

Jeff kicks Blade, TWIST OF FATE! Blade staggers about, but Matt gets him for another TWIST OF FATE! Matt hobbles, Jeff is bringing out stuff from under the ring. It’s a LADDER! And he RAMS Butcher with it! And again! And again! Butcher goes down in a heap but Matt drags him up, TWIST OF FATE! The Hardys hurry to position tables together, and then have the ladder nearby! They go after Blade and bring him over to put him on the tables! Jeff is climbing, he wants to repeat last week’s wild tornado tag! Matt braces the ladder and fans fire up, SWANTON BOMB through the tables!!

Winners: The Hardy Boyz

And in a big comeback, down 0-1, Matt & Jeff defeat Butcher & Blade! But here comes El Idolo! Andrade, Jose, Bunny and Private Party make their way out, but Matt is ready with a chair! Andrade and his office continue their way down the ramp, but here comes STIIIING! Boston is thunderous as Sting appears on stage, with his BASEBALL BAT! Down goes Quen, down goes Kassidy, and Jose backs off quickly! Andrade uses Bunny as a shield? Sting won’t bash Bunny, so the AFO retreats. But is this far from over between El Idolo and The Icon?


Christian and Jurassic Express speak.

Well, Captain Charisma isn’t really in the mood. He tries to wash out something in his eye, then he CHUCKS the water bottle at the wall! Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus give him his space, and they turn their attention to reDRagon. JB admits those guys are tough, they hit hard, and have some dumbass cauliflower ears. And they’ve been champions all around the world. “But around here, things are determined by the records. And honestly, your guys’ is not even good enough to challenge us for these. But since you’ve been getting involved in our business week after week after week, why don’t we just challenge you?”

Next week, Dynamite, for the AEW World Tag Team Championships! Luchasaurus shouts, “Dragons! Dinosaurs! RAAAGH!” The title match they wanted is happening, will Fish & O’Reilly make the Jurassic Express’ reign go extinct?


AEW hears from Nyla Rose and Thunder Rosa.

The Native Beast tells La Mera Mera, “These past two, three weeks you’ve been champion, I genuinely, from the bottom of my heart, can appreciate your passion for this industry, your passion for Women’s Wrestling.” But Rosa says the last time they were in Texas, Nyla attacked from behind, like the coward that she is. Vickie says Rosa talks about giving women opportunities, but Vickie will send her client any day, any time, any place, any state! Rosa says Battle of the Belts II is in Garland, Texas, and yes, Nyla is getting the opportunity. If Nyla wants this, she can come and take it! Now THAT is a Saturday Fight Night! Will Rosa still be champion after a run in with this Vicious Vixen?


Tony Schiavone interviews Toni Storm and Jamie Hayter.

These two are the first to qualify for the Owen Hart Women’s Tournament. He thanks them for no physicality here, and also notes there is a chance these two meet in the tournament. Toni offers a handshake, citing no physicality. Hayter slaps the handshake away and tells Toni she really hopes to face off in the tournament. All that momentum and star power because everyone loves Toni, stops with Hayter. If anyone deserves to win this tournament, it’s Hayter! Toni says, “Sweetheart, this has only just begun.” These two leave without throwing down, but when and where in the tournament will the Lightning From Down Under strike?


Owen Hart Memorial Women’s Tournament Qualifier: Hikaru Shida VS Julia Hart w/ The Varsity Blonds!

The Full Metal Warrior wants to cut down the Professor of Pro-Wrestling, Serena Deeb, but she also wants her part in history. The same can be said for the Varsity Blonds’ no-longer-cheery cheerleader, but will that new edge be able to match up to Shida’s?

Julia KICKS Shida in the back during her entrance! Griff and BPJ are confused but the bell rings and Shida hits back! Julia pushes Shida to ropes, then chokes Shida with her letterman jacket! The Blonds are again confused, the ref reprimands and counts, and Julia stops at 4. Julia cools off, but then she tells the Blonds to just leave! They don’t get it, but BPJ storms off in a huff and Griff follows in confusion. Julia then handspring forearm smashes Shida in a corner! Julia whips corner to corner, handsprings again, but Shida fireman’s carries to put her on the top rope! TOP SHELF KNEE! Then Shida goes to the apron, runs in and KICKS Julia down!

Shida goes looking under the ring, and she finds a chair! Fans fire up and Shida sets it up, to then LEAP off it, to dropkick Julia down! Fans fire up with Shida and she puts Julia back in the ring. Shida gets in but Julia kicks the rope to jam her up! And then she hits a DDT! Julia rains down fists and CLUBS Shida as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Julia keeps on Shida, slaps her around, but Shida hits back with body shots! Julia whips Shida to a corner then runs in to back elbow! Julia fires forearms, backs off, then digs her boots in! The ref counts, Julia lets off, and she taunts Shida right to her face. Julia snapmares Shida to then KICK her in the back! Julia CLUBS Shida again and again, but Shida hits back! Shida even pulls Julia’s hair! Julia pulls Shida’s hair, the ref reprimands them both, but Julia throws Shida down! Julia clamps on a chinlock, but Shida throws elbows. Julia gets the arms for a motorcycle stretch! Shida endures again, and fights her way up

Shida turns things around, rolls Julia up, TWO! Shida runs in but Julia slips around to HOOK KICK and STO! Then STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Shida is hanging in this but Julia CLUBS her! Julia puts Shida back on the ropes, and she stands on her with both feet! The ref counts, Julia hops off, and she drags Shida back up. Shida throws hands, ROCKS Julia, and CLUBS her on the back! Shida then brings Julia up but Julia ROCKS Shida back! They go back and forth with forearms, Julia giving as good as she gets! Julia runs, but Shida ROCKS her again! Dynamite returns to single picture as Shida fires off more shots!

Shida drags Julia back up, fires off more forearms, then CLUBS away on Julia’s back! It’s all Julia can do to shield her head and fans are fired up! Shida lets off as Julia flails feebly, and then Shida whips Julia to a corner. Shida runs corner to corner, to KNEE her down! Shida reels Julia in, Julia resists by kicking her legs, but Shida powers through to hit the suplex! Fans fire up, Shida runs, but Julia avoids the shining wizard! Julia goes to the apron but Shida climbs up the nearest corner. Shida brings Julia up to deadlift SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO! Julia survives but Shida doesn’t lose focus! Shida brings Julia up again, reels her in, Canadian Rack!

But Julia rakes eyes! Fans boo but Julia turns it into a BULLDOG! Cover, TWO! Shida is still in this and Julia is frustrated! Julia decides to go up top, and she TWISTING MOONSAULT FLOPS as Shida moves! SLIDING ELBOW! KATANA KICK!! And then, FALCON ARROW! Cover, Shida wins!

Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall (advances to the Owen Hart Tournament)

As tough and as mean as Julia has become, she’s still not on the level of a former AEW Women’s World Champion! But before Shida can really celebrate, Serena Deeb makes her way out! Or rather, she ambushes Shida! But Shida was ready! Shida has the kendo stick, Deeb has a chair! They’re in a standoff now, but Deeb has an evil smile as she leaves. The Wolf of Wrestling is clearly planning her next attack, but when and where will that happen?


Backstage interview with Swerve Strickland.

Alex Marvez says it was a big weekend for Swerve, as well as some friends at the Grammy’s in Las Vegas. Swerve says it was great, he got to show love to his guys, they won Grammy’s for their work on Kanye’s album. But the weekend had a rough start, Swerve and Keith Lee got put through tables by “Powerhouse” Hobbs and Ricky Starks. This ain’t over, you can bet on that. But for now, Swerve’s gonna get ready for some stuff he’s got to do. But just as Swerve hops into the locker room, he gets jumped by Team Taz! Keith Lee rushes in and he evens the odds! Only to get SMACKED off a table!

Swerve CLUBS Starks, but Starks RAMS Swerve into some cases! But then Keith POUNCES Hobbs through the wall, right into the other part of the locker room! Keith may be limitless, but will he and Hobbs demolish everything in their path as this feud continues?


ROH & AAA World Tag Team Championships: FTR VS The Young Bucks w/ Brandon Cutler!

Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood went into Supercard of Honor champions, and came out DOUBLE champions! They’ve already made history with that feat, but they still need this to solidify themselves as THE BEST tag team of this generation! Will there be no denying FTR’s legacy after tonight? Or will Matt & Nick Jackson deny them that title while also taking these titles?

The introductions are made by none other than ROH’s Bobby Cruise, with the Bucks throwing their jackets at FTR. FTR shrugs that off, then throw their jackets back! All four belts are raised, and we’re going to see who leaves Boston with them and so much more!

The teams sort out, Matt starts against Cash and fans are already fired up! Matt and Cash pace around, Cash and Dax talk strategy, and fans are rallying for “F T R! F T R!” The Bucks don’t sweat it, Matt and Cash tie up, then break. And then they tie up and break. And then the tie up and Cash puts Matt in a corner. The ref counts, Matt turns it around but he lets off, to push Cash. Cash SHOVES Matt down! Cash shows haymaker and the Bucks stay back! Matt and Cash reset, tie up, and Cash gets a leg to tackle Matt. Cash drops for a headlock but Matt rolls Cash to a cover. ONE, Cash holds on but Matt fights up to his feet.

Cash hits a headlock takeover, Matt headscissors, and Matt holds tight. Cash kips free the second time, but Matt gets him for a headlock. Fans duel, “Let’s Go, Young Bucks!” “F T R!” Cash pries at the headlock, headlocks back, but Matt powers out. Cash runs Matt over and Matt tumbles out of the ring!

All four men stand off and fans fire up again. The teams cool off, Matt and Dax circle. Fans duel, Dax and Matt feel things out but Matt sucker punches Cash! So Dax sucker punches Nick! Dax then ROCKS Matt, runs the ropes, but Nick trips him up! Matt runs now, but Cash trips him up! Nick and Cash get in to start throwing hands, so Matt and Dax do the same! Fans are thunderous for this brawl, but Nick DECKS Cash and kicks him out of the ring!

Matt ROCKS Dax, the Bucks double whip, to double hip toss and double handspring basement dropkick! Cash runs in, but he gets the same double hip toss and dropkicks, but he springs right up to DOUBLE LARIAT the Bucks! Fans are thunderous, Cash hurries to his corner and he tags in. Cash blocks Matt’s kick to trip him, and step through, SHARPSHOOTER! But Nick gets in, only for Cash to duck the superkick! Dax trips Nick up and he puts on a SHARPSHOOTER! Fans are electric for the double Sharpshooters! But the ref reprimands Dax, he and Nick aren’t legal! Speaking of not legal, Nick RAKES Cash’s face!

Cash lets Matt go, Dax has no choice but to let Nick go, and Nick DECKS Dax! Cash flounders around, Nick goes out, and the Bucks meet at the corner, CLOTHESLINE ENZIGURI COMBO! Then Matt runs corner to corner again, CANNONBALL ENZIGURI COMBO! Fans fire up but are mixed between cheers and jeers. Nick soaks up the heat either way, and Matt ROCKS Cash with a right hand. Matt CLUBS and ROCKS Cash more, throws body shots, then whips to ropes. Body shot and a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Matt drags Cash to a drop zone, goes up, and drops an ax handle! Matt taunts the crowd and the ref keeps Dax back.

Nick gets his cheap shots in while the ref is distracted, then he and Matt fake a tag. The ref allows it from the clap sound, Nick scrapes Cash and chokes him on ropes! The ref counts, Nick lets off to do his Macho Man impression. Cash flops out of the ring but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cash gets up, Nick is on the apron, Nick drops ax handles on Cash! Nick puts Cash in, he drags him to the Bucks’ corner, and he tags in Matt.

Nick sets up on the apron, Matt scoops Cash, but Dax intercepts Nick’s springboard flip! Cash turns the gut wrench around on Matt, too, Dax slingshot POWERBOMBS Nick while Cash TOMBSTONES Matt!! Cash hurries, tag to Dax, and FTR hurry to get Matt up! They have the arms! Matt SPITS in their faces, so F T R TRIGGER!! And they even steal the kisses on both cheeks! BIG FREAKIN’ RIG!!! Cover, FTR wins!!!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall (still ROH & AAA Tag Team Champions)

Tony Schiavone wants to know if there’s such a thing as a 10 star match, and y’know what? That might be what this one was! FTR keep both titles AND prove they are truly #TopGuys! The Bucks tried everything but they couldn’t outdo Cash & Dax! Will any team come even close to stopping them now?

My Thoughts:

What an awesome night for Dynamite! Commentary itself was saying this was a PPV level card, and it came damn close. Cole VS Christian was a great opener, and naturally Cole won to keep going up the AEW singles ranks. And of course reDRagon went after Christian to bring Jurassic Express out, along with Hangman coming out to confront Cole. Hangman is becoming Texas Deathmatch man, and that is awesome. He and Cole are going to tear it up on that Rampage. Jurassic Express has a great promo calling out reDRagon and they’re going to have a great match for the tag titles next week.

But then AEW is again undercutting their own Battle of the Belts special. If the tag titles are next Dynamite, and if the world title is on Rampage, the only title match right now for BOTB II is the women’s title! Rosa, Nyla and Vickie had a good promo vignette, and I suppose the women’s titles could both get the spotlight on BOTB II, since Jade and Sterling had a good promo to run down Marina Shafir. But again, two title matches doesn’t make much of a special. As I’ve said because they’ve been hyping this up for weeks, but Rosa will win her match, and Jade will come the closest she has to losing, but the titles stay where they are.

Samoa Joe had a great debut in AEW, Caster had a very good rap, and of course Joe is moving on into the Owen Hart Tournament. Lethal and Sonjay had a good promo to tie things in with ROH, which I feel I’ll have to keep an eye on at least now. Especially with Wheeler Yuta being the ROH Pure Champion. He had a great promo with Best Friends, and it’s all but given that he’ll join Blackpool Combat Club after this week. We got a good cue card promo from #Tammy, or #SamTay, whatever you wanna call Sammy & Tay. Of course they’re going to escalate things with American Top Team, that mixed tag is coming.

Good stuff with Wardlow again beating security guards and distracting Spears while pissing MJF off. Dean wins again, I feel like there could be a loose alliance between him, Punk and Wardlow, all the guys MJF hates. We got great stuff out of JAS and Kingston-Santana-Ortiz. It was great continuity thing to have the bashed up screen just there the whole night after Kingston tossed it. That Six Man is gonna happen, and maybe another. One with Jericho & 2Point0, the other with Jericho, Garcia and Hager. Then we’ll surely get Kingston VS Jericho II at Double or Nothing, and I bet JAS cheats so Jericho wins that.

We got awesome stuff out of the Tables match, and I do like that they made it “elimination” or however you wanna call it. Naturally, the Hardy Boyz win, and naturally AFO comes out after them, only to be backed down by Sting. As I said before, we could end this with Andrade VS Sting 1v1. Hayter and Toni have a good promo segment to hype up the tournament, and to foreshadow that this is at least a semifinal match. Shida VS Julia was great stuff, especially with Julia showing her darker side even more. It’s only a matter of time before Julia takes off that eye patch and she has the same spooky eye as Malakai Black. Deeb showing up was natural, too, and that is probably our other semifinal. Hayter VS Toni, Deeb VS Shida, winners face off in an epic finals.

Great stuff out of Team Taz brawling with Keith and Swerve, especially that Pounce to finish it. They should have a Falls Count Anywhere Tag or something, then we can get Keith VS Starks. Hell, add the FTW Championship to the BOTB II card as like a great opener to hype everyone up. And then that main event, that was no less than Tag Team Match of the Year. You cannot watch that match and act like it was less than the best tag match anywhere in wrestling today. Hell, that was good enough to be in consideration for MATCH of the year. There was nothing weak in that match, I loved every bit of it, and not only are FTR Faces now, they’re practically the top Faces, even over Jurassic Express.

My Score: 9.2/10

AEW Collision bleeds over a bit.

Bryan Danielson is still down on the ramp after Konosuke Takeshita’s Brainbuster and the medics check him. The battle with Will Ospreay at Dynasty is still in the books, but what condition will Bryan be in?


Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

FTW Championship: Hook VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil knows he’s up against a bad, bad man, but this is FTW Rules! Everyone who fights for this title is a bad, bad man, so will Hook prove he’s the baddest? Or will Shane #SendHook back to New York without his gold?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who’s really the biggest badass in AEW!

The bell rings, the two circle, and they feel things out. Shane swings, Hook dodges to fire off fast hands and forearms! The fans fire up behind Hook but Shane shoves him away. Hook ducks the haymaker, waistlocks, but Shane fights with elbows. Shane swings again, but Hook gets under! Shane CLUBS the Camino down, then whips. Hook holds ropes, then DUMPS Shane out! Shane tumbles to the floor, Hook pursues, and Hook SMACKS Shane off railing! Hook SMACKS Shane off steel steps, then has Shane sit in a corner. Hook rains down fists, then lets off to revel in the cheers. Hook throws knees again and again, then CLUBS Shane again.

Shane staggers along railing, but Hook puts him in the ring. The fans cheer again, Hook storms in, but Shane JABS! JABS! And BODY SHOTS! Hook falls, sputters, and the ref has Shane stay back to check. That could’ve been a liver shot but Shane hauls Hook up. Shane CHOPS Hook in the career, and Hook sputters as he goes along ropes. Shane taunts Hook, puts him in a corner, and CHOPS again! Hook staggers to another corner, Shane taunts him, “I thought you were the man!” Shane BODY BLOWS again and Hook coughs. Hook fires hands in return, backs Shane down, then reels Shane in! Shane’s too big for the suplex, though!

Shane shoves Hook, and BODY BLOWS! Hook falls to the mat, but Shane drags him back up. Shane HEADBUTTS Hook, Hook is dazed, and Shane says he thought Hook was a killer. Shane says to bow down to the killer that’s badder! Shane CHOPS Hook, suplexes him, and hangs him out to dry! Hook sputters and falls, Shane soaks up heat, and Battle of the Belts goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Hook up, TOSSES him out, then goes out to bring Hook up. Shane whips Hook hard into steel steps! Hook writhes, Shane storms around, then Shane drags Hook up. Shane makes Hook take a seat in a corner, then runs up to KNEE Hook against railing! Hook falls over, but he’s somehow still conscious! Shane drags Hook up and hangs him out to dry on the railing! Hook sputters and falls to the floor, and Shane talks more trash. Shane drags Hook up, puts him in the ring, and BOTB returns to single picture. Shane has Hook on the apron, for the APRON LEG DROP! Hook sputters more while Shane seethes.

Shane storms in, talks trash on the fans, then soaks up the heat. Shane drags Hook up, puts him in the corner, and BODY SHOTS! BODY SHOT! HAYMAKER! Hook slumps down in the corner but the fans rally up. Shane waits on Hook, Hook says he’s still in this! Shane stands Hook up to BODY SHOT, BODY SHOT and BODY SHOT! Then Shane ROCKS Hook again, again, and AGAIN! Hook flops back down while Shane storms around. The ref checks with Hook, Shane says to call it already! Hook says no, he’s still in this! Shane drags Hook up, tells Hook to quit or he gets send home in a body bag!

The fans boo as Shane whips corner to corner, hard! Hook sputters, Shane runs in, but Hook dodges! Shane hits buckles, Hook hurries to waistlock! Shane fights the grip, then ROCKS Hook! Hook ROCKS Shane back! And ROCKS him again and again! The fans fire up as Hook fires more shots! Hook runs to LARAIT! Shane stays up, Hook LARIATS again! Hook runs, ducks the haymaker, and GERMAN SUPLEXES!! Shane staggers up in a daze, and Hook clinches to EXPLODER!! Hook covers, TWO!! Shane is still tougher than that and Hook is beside himself!

Shane’s OUT, Hook wins!!

Winner: Hook, by submission (still FTW Champion)

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil does it again! He takes damage and finds a way to win! But now, will he have that face to face meeting with Chris Jericho this Wednesday Night Dynamite?


Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?


AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over. Rocky hooks an arm but Roddy fights off the takedown to hip toss and cover. ONE, but Roddy facelocks. Rocky fights up, pries at the hold, but Roddy holds on tight. Rocky still fights his way out of the hold, wristlocks and wrenches again, then YANKS the arm.

Rocky keeps one eye on The Kingdom, then he brings Roddy around. UPPERCUT and Roddy staggers. Roddy BOOTS, whips, but Rocky goes Spiderman! Rocky then dodges Roddy and sends him tumbling out! Rocky goes out to PENALTY KICK from the apron! Rocky leaps to DIVING STOMP! Roddy writhes, Rocky gives more Latino Heat, and BOTB goes picture in picture.

Rocky tells The Kingdom to back off, and so does the ref. Taven mocks Rocky’s Latino Heat, but Rocky puts Roddy in the ring. Rocky storms up on Roddy to KICK his leg! Roddy hobbles to a corner, Rocky CHOPS him and then follows him. Rocky ROCKS Roddy, ROCKS him again, but Roddy bails out. Rocky goes after Roddy on the apron, but Roddy lifts! Rocky fights that to then elbow Roddy! But Rocky has to watch out for The Kingdom lurking! Roddy BOOTS Rocky, then POSTS him! Rocky falls to the floor, Roddy hops down and he drags Rocky up. Roddy gives Rocky a RAILING BACKBREAKER! Rocky writhes, The Kingdom mocks him more, and Roddy drags Rocky up.

Roddy gets Rocky up but Rocky ROCKS him first! And again! Roddy hits back, Rocky CHOPS, and CHOPS! Rocky runs, but Roddy blocks the Rana to make it a POWER BREAKER! Rocky writhes, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy clamps onto Rocky with a motorcycle stretch!

Rocky endures as Roddy digs knee into Rocky’s back. Rocky fights up, moves around, but Roddy knees him low! Roddy scoops Rocky to RAM him into buckles! Then OKLAHOMA STAMPEDE! Cover, TWO! Rocky is still in this but Roddy stays on Rocky with stomps. Roddy stomps and stomps as BOTB returns to single picture. Roddy goes back to the motorcycle stretch but the fans rally again. Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS! Roddy wobbles, Rocky KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS!

Rocky CHOPS, whips, but Roddy reverses. Rocky reverses back to kick, but Roddy ducks the enzigiri! Rocky REWIND HEEL KICKS! Roddy flops out of the ring and the fans fire up! Rocky builds speed, fakes Roddy out and DIVES onto Taven! Then Rocky DIVES onto Roddy! Rocky puts Roddy in, runs up, SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Rocky keeps his cool.

Roddy survives again and Rocky is beside himself! The Kingdom is also worried, they rally up for Roddy. The fans rally for Rocky as he goes out to the apron.

Rocky climbs but The Kingdom is lurking again. The ref tells them to back off, but Roddy ROCKS Rocky first! Roddy has Rocky up top but Rocky DECKS Roddy! Rocky adjusts, Roddy stands, METE- STRONG KNEE!! Cover, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (denies Rocky Romero a title opportunity)

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?


Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?


BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?


ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?

My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (4/13/24)

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!



Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!


  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.
  • AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay; Storm wins and denies AZM a title match.
  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.


The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?


Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?


AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?


Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

Collision returns and Shibata gets back in the ring after having wrecked Lee on the outside. But then Lee wrenches Shibata. Shibata ROCKS Lee, Lee wrenches, repeat! Lee CHOPS Shibata, but Shibata doesn’t budge! Lee CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Lee CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, but Shibata is leaning into the shots! Shibata backs Lee down even though Lee CHOPS again and again! Shibata eggs Lee on, Ogogo coaches Lee, and the CHOPS keep going. Shibata ROCKS Lee with a forearm! Lee flops in a corner, Shibata fires more forearms on him! Shibata UPPERCUTS, then JABS, then COHPS! JAB CHOP JAB CHOP!

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?


Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?


Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?


Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout!

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it! Garcia has it! Angelico has it again, Garcia has it back, ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as the two kick at each other while the hold is undone. They both stand, Garcia kicks but Angelico kicks back.

Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?


Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?


AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off! AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?


Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?


Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?


Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?


Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?


BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands? Or can Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood find a way to come out on top?


The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine.

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
