Bryan Danielson VS Trent Beretta!

The American Dragon represents the Blackpool Combat Club against #JustTrent of the Best Friends. William Regal is on commentary, he doesn’t get why Trent hangs around with “goofs” like Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy. Will Trent show just how serious he can get?

The bell rings and fans rally up already. They feel out the grapple, knuckle lock, and Bryan rolls to wrench and wrangle Trent down. Trent endures but Bryan twists the arm to a keylock. Trent rolls, trips Bryan and has a toehold. Bryan rolls it to a waistlock, then he pulls on the nose to KICK Trent in the back! Fans fire up but Trent scowls as the two reset.

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission

Regal on commentary says he loves the little details. The American Dragon did his part for the BCC, but will the Maniac do the same in tonight’s main event?

 

Rampage is LIVE next week!

And at an earlier time, too! 7 Eastern, and it’ll have the AEW World Championship TEXAS DEATHMATCH, Adam Page VS Adam Cole! Who proves to be the deadlier Adam?

 

Backstage interview with Hook.

Lexi Nair says the world has been quietly anticipating what the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil has to say. But he chooses to not say anything. Is there anything on his mind? Nope, he’s just eating chips and listening to music. He heads out, but Danhausen says, “Gotcha this time!” Nope, Hook just throws his chips away. Danhausen decides to try what’s left in the bag. Do these give Hook his power? Well, probably not. How many times will Danhausen try to curse Hook?

 

Rampage returns with Dam Lambert & The Men of the Year in the ring.

The TNT Champion says, “I made the brave decision to get rid of the open door challenge, because I was looking for someone to step up. I was looking for someone to separate themselves from the rest of the pack and prove that they think they’ve got what it takes to do what nobody has been able to do in 394 days!” But Sammy Guevara says, “Will you please shut the hell up?!” Honestly, Scorpio, that title isn’t supposed to make the man, the man is supposed to make the title. And right now, Scorpio makes the title mean NOTHING. As for Dan Lambert, what is HE going to do? Say something offensive or sexist? They’re all used to it by now, they won’t be bothered by it.

Sammy wants Tay to do a favor. Translate “Sexist Piece of Sh*t” into Portuguese, please. Oh, that’s easy! “Dan Lambert.” Lambert says he’s actually here to save them from themselves! He may not be fluent in Tay’s broken English, but he thinks Tay said Dan is sexist. Maybe he is, but he’s also a father. And the father in him thinks their parents have suffered enough humiliation for one lifetime. The father in Dan is gonna give them advice! “When you run your mouths, talk a little bit more about what you do in this damn ring than what you do in the bedroom!” Sammy tells Lambert that they’re not here for a lecture! This isn’t a talk show, this is a wrestling show, they want a match!

Ethan Page says we all get it! Sammy & Tay want a match. They may not have put this together, but All Ego doesn’t lace up his boots unless we’re talking big money marquee. And he gets it, Spanish God VS Scorpio or Spanish God VS All Ego is big money, because Sammy is a PILLAR~! But as a pillar, Sammy is the first crack in the foundation! Sammy & Tay are just a PR disaster waiting to happen! Not only that, but Ethan is a dad, too. He tells Gabriella Page at home, even though she’s asleep because he’s a good parent, that Ethan prays she never end up like Tay. Sammy says he doesn’t give a sh*t about Ethan’s kid. Sammy just wants a match!

So until American Top Team gives them something, Sammy & Tay are gonna come out here again and again, making their lives a living hell. If you were mad about the car, just wait until next week. See ya later, bitch! Sammy & Tay head out, but just what will they do to force American Top Team’s hand?

 

Chris Jericho presents his Sports Entertainer of the Week.

“Due to his homegrown leadership and commitment to the Nightmare Factory and his choices of colognes and BMW’s,” Jericho says QT Marshall is the Sports Entertainer of the Week. But while QT won this, is he about to lose in whose house? SWERVE’S HOUSE!

Swerve Strickland VS QT Marshall w/ The Factory!

The bell rings, the two circle, and they tie up. Fans rally for Swerve as QT headlocks. Swerve powers out but QT runs him over! QT mocks Swerve’s pose, but Swerve hooks QT’s leg with legs! Swerve then gets up to grind QT’s shoulder, but QT scoops. Swerve slips off, O’Conner Roll then handsprings to headscissor! QT staggers up into a hip toss! Swerve floats to a jackknife, TWO! QT flounder sup, kicks back and whips, but Swerve handsprings up and out of the ring! Fans fire up while Swerve sees Solo and Comoroto creeping. He stares them down as Rampage goes picture in picture.

The Factory stands down and Swerve goes up to the apron, and he shoulders QT away. Swerve slingshots up and over to sunset flip but QT stays up. Swerve slips out the back, shoves QT out, then goes to the apron to BOOT QT down! Solo checks on QT and the ring count starts. Swerve waits on QT to get up, and then he leaps for ax handles! Swerve bumps QT off the apron, puts him in the ring, and then goes up the corner. Swerve aims but QT gets up while Solo distracts. Swerve jumps over QT, ducks one lariat, but not the SOUTHPAW! The ref knows what was going on, though, so he EJECTS The Factory!

QT is freaking out as his proteges go up the ramp! QT hurries after Swerve with haymakers in the corner, as well as stomps. The ref counts, QT lets off, and QT drags Swerve up to CLUB him. Swerve shoves back but QT kicks low. QT pushes Swerve around, drag shim up but Swerve throws hands! And CHOPS! Swerve whips, QT reverses but Swerve ducks and dodges, only for QT to CLOBBER him! QT grins as he looms over Swerve and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Swerve hits a running forearm! QT staggers but Swerve runs to forearm again! QT stays up so Swerve runs again, ducks and dodges to CLOBBER QT down this time! Fans fire up and Swerve back elbows in the corner! Swerve snapmares QT, goes up, FLYING UPPERCUT! Fans fire up and chant, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” QT arm-drags out of the half nelson then pop-up HAYMAKER! QT calls for it, he reels Swerve in, but no Diamond Cutter! Swerve BOOTS from the corner, goes out then steps in, basement dropkick! SOMERSAULT COMPLETE SHOT! Fans fire up and Swerve gives QT a HOUSE CALL! Cover, Swerve wins!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall

But Ricky Starks hops off commentary to have the “garbage” music turn off. Starks tells Swerve that this is the deal. They have unfinished business, Keith and Hobbs have unfinished business. So Dynamite in New Orleans, it will be a tag match! “So bring that big ol’ bozo, Keith Lee, with you, I’ma bring my homie, Powerhouse Hobbs, and we gonna do the damn thing and get it poppin’ like I’ve been trying to since day one!” Absolute has issued the challenge, and Swerve is all for it! Will Team Taz find out that in Swerve’s House, everything is limitless?

 

AEW hears from Marina Shafir.

The Problem tells Jade Cargill, “I’m begging you to solve me.” The TBS Championship showdown is coming, will Shafir simply be number 30? Or will she be the one in 29-1 that takes both streak and title away from #ThatBitch?

 

Owen Hart Memorial Women’s Tournament Qualifier: Red Velvet VS Willow Nightingale!

So far, Toni Storm, Jamie Hayter and Hikaru Shida have earned their spots in this inaugural tournament. But now, The Chef and #EyeCandy are looking to cook up something real sweet in Boston! Who moves on to join in as the fourth seed of the bracket?

The bell rings, the two circle and tie up. Velvet waistlocks but Willow pries free to switch. Fans rally, Willow SLAMS  Velvet down then rolls her to a bridge, TWO! Willow smiles and Velvet nods as the two circle. They tie up, Velvet wrenches, hammerlocks, but Willow switches that onto Velvet. Velvet endures, elbows back and reaches back, to go up for a flying-mare! Willow staggers up, things speed up, and Velvet CALF KICKS! Willow stays up, Velvet arm-drags her down and has the armlock. Willow fights up, fans rally and Willow whips Velvet away to run her over! Willow flexes and fans fire up!

Willow runs, rolls, and bypasses, but Velvet ducks and leaps, Willow runs her over again! Cover, TWO! Willow drags Velvet up, scoops her, and SLAMS her! Then Willow runs, but Velvet avoids the senton! Fans fire up, Velvet puts Willow in a corner and fires off with hands! That boxing background shows itself, then Velvet stomps Willow.

Velvet whips but Willow handsprings, then spins Velvet around, snap suplex! Then the SENTON! Cover, TWO! Willow grows frustrated but fans fire up!

Willow climbs the corner, all the way to the top! MOONSAULT FLOPS! Velvet managed to avoid most of that, and she rallies with big forearms!

Just announced for Dynamite in New Orleans!

The ROH World Television Championship makes its AEW debut as MINORU SUZUKI defends the belt against SAMOA JOE! Hell, just Suzuki VS Joe is big, but who will be leaving Louisiana with the gold?

 

Backstage interview with Tony Nese.

Lexi Nair upsets The Premier Athlete by apparently not having the same enthusiasm for him as she did everyone else. Does she know who he is? He is the hottest free agent signing in AEW history! But she’s yuckin’ it up with goofs like Hook and Danhausen! Nese wants to get what he deserves! But in walks Mark Sterling. He agrees with Nese, actually. Nese might have seen some of his work with MJF and Jade. Maybe what Nese needs is proper legal representation. Let’s walk ‘n’ talk. Has Smart Mark just added another heavy hitter to his stable?

 

Mark Henry speaks with tonight’s main eventers.

He knows Wheeler Yuta has had a big week already as the NEW ROH Pure Champion, and he took Bryan Danielson to the limit. What does he have in store for Jon Moxley? Wheeler’s no stranger to Moxley. Moxley embarrassed Yuta in minutes their first time, but the second time they fought, Yuta came that close. Moxley may not want to listen to what Bryan has to say about him, but Wheeler Yuta is NOT the same guy he was before. Mox beat him, bruised him, battered him, so there is nothing left Mox can do to Yuta! Yuta is not afraid! He is the ROH Pure Champion, and tonight he earns respect!

Moxley finally looks at the camera as he says, “Let’s be very, very clear. It’s not my job to show you respect! I’m not your friend, I’m not your buddy, I don’t care what William Regal thinks about you, this ain’t Pure Rules! Tonight, I have one job: spill your guts all over the mat to find out exactly, finally, once and for all, what you are really made of!” Well there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will the Decoder show Moxley that what he’s made of is worthy of joining the Blackpool Combat Club?

Wheeler Yuta VS Jon Moxley!

Rampage returns as Yuta makes his entrance from the stage, and then Moxley makes his from the crowd. But Yuta DIVES out onto Moxley!! Yuta fires off, whips Moxley into steel steps, and then brings him up to keep on him! Moxley gets his jacket off as they go staggering into the crowd! Yuta CHOPS Moxley, CLUBS him, then fires off while Moxley sits in an open chair! Moxley pushes Yuta away and goes back towards ringside. Moxley kicks low, but Yuta blocks the bump to smack Moxley off railing! Yuta stalks Moxley more, CLUBS him again, and they get in the ring. Moxley shoots around to GERMAN SUPLEX!

The ref calls for the bell and this match is officially on! Moxley drags Yuta up, suplexes high and hard, then paces. Yuta gets himself to a corner, Moxley run sin, and he clotheslines! Then CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS! Yuta CHOPS back, and CHOPS again, and CHOPS again! Moxley BOOTS Yuta down! Cover, ONE! Moxley drags Yuta back up, straitjacket and palm strikes to the face! Then he claws Yuta’s face! Fans rally and duel, the ref reprimands and Moxley lets off. Moxley eggs Yuta on so Yuta CHOPS again! And again! And again! Moxley HEADBUTTS then runs, but Yuta atomic drops!

Moxley goes to a corner, Yuta runs in but is TOSSED! Moxley goes out after Yuta, and STOMPS his head into steps! The ref reprimands, Moxley leaves Yuta behind and Yuta is busted open! Boston fires up as Rampage goes picture in picture!

Moxley eggs Yuta on and Yuta drags himself into the ring. Moxley watches Yuta bleed, then BOOTS him in the head! Moxley digs his fingers into the forehead! Yuta fights back but Moxley CLUBS him! Moxley has Yuta in the corner, digs his fingers into the forehead again, then CHOPS Yuta! Yuta swings but misses, Moxley CHOPS him again! Yuta CHOPS back! But then he falls over. Moxley shrugs as if to ask what’s going on, but he gets Yuta up for an X-PLEX! Yuta flounders out of the ring and Moxley wipes Yuta’s blood off on his pants. Yuta sputters, Moxley goes out after him, and he drags the bloody Decoder up to ROCK with a haymaker!

Yuta staggers to steps, Moxley throws more hands, and Moxley revels in having more blood on his hands. Moxley runs back in but is sent into steel steps! Yuta wipes his blood from his face, Moxley gets to his feet, and both men get in the ring. Yuta goes to a corner and looks around in a daze through that crimson mask. Yuta sees Moxley, he goes up the corner, but Moxley ROCKS him first! Moxley climbs up after Yuta, CLAWS Yuta’s back, and then brings Yuta up for a SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Yuta is still in this, but Moxley wraps him right up in the straitjacket! Moxley digs his knee into the back but Yuta endures.

The ref checks the wound, it is still bleeding, and Yuta fights up as fans rally. Yuta powers out to throw body shots! Yuta runs, but Moxley scoops for a BACKBREAKER! Moxley then ties up the legs in a TEXAS CLOVERLEAF! Yuta endures but Rampage goes to break!

Rampage returns quickly, Yuta hurries to go for the ropes! ROPEBREAK as Yuta’s face is dripping red! Moxley lets off at 4, and Yuta manages to sit up. Moxley pie faces Yuta around, and eggs Yuta on. Yuta CHOPS, CHOPS and fires off forearms! Moxley knee slow, whips, but Yuta rewinds and tosses Moxley out! Yuta hurries to go up the corner, for a SUPER CROSSBODY through the timekeeper’s table!! Fans lose their minds as the ref helps both men out of the wreckage. Fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but this has to end somehow! Moxley gets in the ring while Yuta sputters through his deep crimson mask.

The ring count starts, the medic checks on Yuta but Yuta wants to keep going. Yuta drags himself over at 4 of 10, gets in at 5, and fans fire up as Yuta isn’t done yet! Yuta runs in, gets around Moxley, backslide, TWO! But then Yuta deadlift GERMAN SUPLEXES! Yuta holds on, to GERMAN SUPLEX again! Moxley fights with elbows, then ROLLING ELBOWS! Yuta stays up to spin Moxley again, OLYMPIC SLAM! Yuta wipes off blood on his own chest, and then he gets Moxley’s arms! Yuta copies THE DANIELSON STOMPS!! Fans are thunderous with “YES! YES! YES!” and Yuta goes up top! FLYING SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!!

But into a CROSSFACE!! Moxley endures, reaches out, fans are thunderous again! Yuta smothers Moxley with that grip, but Moxley rolls it back to a cover, TWO! Yuta is right up, into a LARIAT! Cover, TWO!! Yuta survives and Moxley is beside himself! Boston says, “This is Awesome!” as Moxley eggs Yuta on. Yuta gets up, Moxley throws haymakers, but Yuta just eggs him on! Then Yuta gives the shots back! Moxley BITES Yuta’s forehead! Moxley puts Yuta up top, hurries up after him, but Yuta BITES Mox back! And CLAWS Moxley’s back! Moxley gets away, Yuta LEAPS, into a kick! PARADIGM SHIFT!! Cover, TWO!?!?!

Moxley is shocked! Hardly anyone survives that! But somehow, someway, Yuta did! And Boston is here for it! But then Moxley gets the BULLY CHOKE! Yuta endures, wags his finger, but Moxley just cranks it harder! Yuta fights and slips out, but Moxley drives in KNEES! Moxley still eggs Yuta on, so Yuta eggs Moxley on! Moxley runs, but Yuta dodges the boot! Roll up, TWO!! BULLY CHOKE!! Yuta copies Moxley now! But Moxley kicks and flails, fights to his feet, and lifts. Yuta CLUBS Moxley, for a SLEEPER! Moxley fades, Yuta drops back, but Moxley rolls back! HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Moxley is not letting off, Yuta can’t defend himself!

Moxley lets off before the ref calls it, and runs, to REGAL KNEE! Then DEATH RIDER!! Cover, TWO!?!? Is Yuta even human?! Moxley just wraps on the REAR NAKED CHOKE and squeezes the life outta Yuta! Yuta is OUT, Moxley WINS!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission

Moxley said he didn’t care what Bryan and Regal said about this kid, but he just saw for himself that Yuta can survive a hell of a lot! Regal and Bryan appear, the BCC are all shocked, especially when Yuta sits back up! Yuta dares any of them to bring it on, and Boston is behind him! Regal scowls, but the fans are saying, “Shake his hand!” Yuta gets to his feet, he stares Regal down, and then Regal extends his hand! Yuta unclenches his fists, to take that handshake! Yuta writes “BCC” on his own chest in his own blood, does this all mean he’s in the Blackpool Combat Club?


My Thoughts:

What an AWESOME Rampage here this week! A great opener from Bryan and Trent, with Regal adding on commentary a bit of his own feelings on Trent. Bryan wins to further himself up the ranks while also perhaps adding to Trent’s edge that could separate him from Best Friends more. Good segment with Hook again not speaking and Danhausen again failing to curse him. At some point, Hook’s gotta speak to tell Danhausen to either leave him alone or have a match with him. Nese getting upset with Lexi was a good touch to his Heel arrogance, and I like that Sterling is reaching out to other clients. Maybe Sterling can help MJF replenish The Pinnacle with Wardlow out and potentially FTR leaving.

Shafir’s one line promo was pretty good, and she had a good highlight reel. As I said with Dynamite, this could go either way. Jade winning over an MMA pro-wrestler will be big for her, or she loses to someone who is legit and that isn’t really that bad for her first loss. Leaning towards Jade retaining, they’re going to have a great match. The Lambert, Men of the Year and #SamTay segment was… Well it was on par with all the other segments they’ve been having and that is to say it was just good. Ethan’s part was probably the highlight, with Sammy basically copying Brock Lesnar once telling Heath Slater that he doesn’t give a damn about his kids.

Jericho saying QT was Sports Entertainer of the Week for reasons not related to being a pro-wrestler was pretty funny. Swerve VS QT was a really good match, and of course Swerve wins. Starks calling Swerve out was good, and the tag match we’re getting is going to be great stuff. Velvet VS Willow was a really good match, and Boston was really behind Willow, but Velvet has the star power in AEW so she gets the win. Maybe Willow will at least be a big part of the ROH Women’s Division after her great match at Supercard of Honor. Then holy crap, Suzuki VS Joe, that’s going to be awesome on Dynamite.

And speaking of awesome, this was a true star making performance for Yuta. A PPV level match, probably best match of his life, and this is after he got the Pure Championship. Yuta surviving Moxley’s best finishers was nuts, and while Moxley still wins, it is pretty clear that Yuta is now the BCC’s first recruit from the new generation. Yuta is gonna represent them strongly in ROH, and this makes it so we could get a Six Man Tag, BCC VS Best Friends, and we get to see Yuta take the fight to Trent.

My Score: 8.8/10

Just last night on Rampage, The Spanish God called out the Don Callis Family, and then got jumped by the Don Callis Family! Callis and the rest of the family has been banned from ringside, as has Chris Jericho, this must be settled between Sammy and Hobbs!

The fans fire up as Hobbs says one more time!

Hobbs hauls Sammy back up, for a fake out. Hobbs doesn’t do what the fans want him to do, he does what he wants. Hobbs moves the other set of steps around, brings Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into railing! Hobbs asks Kevin Kelley what he’s going on about but Kevin isn’t sure Hobbs means. Hobbs tells Kevin to stand up so Kevin does, and then Hobbs demands Kevin hand over his belt. His belt? Hobbs tells him again, give over the belt. Kevin gives in and hands said belt over. Hobbs then takes the belt and uses it to LASH Sammy on the back! Fans are torn but Hobbs LASHES Sammy again!

Then Sammy cravats, uses the steps, but Hobbs turns the cutter into a TOSS over the railing! Sammy’s leg clips the top, but Hobbs hauls him back up and over! But Sammy slips free, and CUTTERS to the steps!! Sammy gets the belt now and he LASHES Hobbs in return!

Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a table! The fans fire up as Sammy sets the table up nearby. Sammy has security move aside, so he can slide that chair off the table and into Hobbs! Sammy then adds another table! If one is good, more must be better! The fans fire up with Sammy as he has those side by side. Hobbs goes to the apron but Sammy climbs up. Sammy aims and leaps, but Hobbs catches him again!! And he SPINEBUSTERS Sammy through the tables!!! All of Springfield, Missouri lose their minds while the ref checks on both men, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Hobbs snarls as he slowly rises up out of the wreckage. Sammy stirs but Hobbs clears out the debris to bring him up. Hobbs HEADBUTTS Sammy and Sammy staggers away. Sammy gets in the ring but Hobbs pursues. Hobbs climbs the corner?! Hobbs then FLYING LARIATS! The Powerhouse proves he can fly, then he covers, TWO!! Sammy survives but Hobbs grinds him into the mat! Hobbs talks trash on Sammy while he fishhooks the nose and pulls on the ear! Hobbs then drags Sammy up, whips him to a corner hard, and Sammy drops to his knees. Hobbs looms over Sammy, eggs him on, and the fans rally up.

Hobbs talks more trash, stands Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into another corner! Collision returns to single picture as Sammy crawls around. Hobbs looms over Sammy again, slaps him around, and then whips him into another corner! Hobbs runs up, Sammy dodges and Hobbs hits buckles! Sammy uses the corner to help in the torture rack! Fans fire up as Sammy carries Hobbs, and GO TO HOSPITAL!! Cover, TWO?!? Hobbs survives and Sammy is shocked! The fans rally as Sammy hurries to find himself something more. Sammy takes a monitor from the timekeeper!

Sammy brings the equipment into the ring, MONITOR SHOT!! But that’s not enough so Sammy looks around outside. He finds another table! The fans are thunderous as table number three is put in the ring. Sammy hurries after Hobbs but Hobbs LARIATS Sammy inside-out! Hobbs storms around, grabs the table for his own and sets that up near a corner. Hobbs goes back for Sammy as the fans rally up, and Hobbs hauls Sammy up. Sammy JAWBREAKERS back! Hobbs wobbles, but Sammy SUPERKICKS! Hobbs still wobbles, so Sammy springboards and FLYING- NO, Hobbs catches him again! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!! Cover, TWO!!!

Sammy survives and now Hobbs is furious! Hobbs runs to BOOT Sammy down! Hobbs goes out while Sammy flops off the apron. Hobbs looks around under the ring, and he brings out a fourth table! The fans fire up as Hobbs brings this one to the ramp side. Hobbs sets that up, stomps Sammy to keep him down, then he goes to fetch a fifth table! The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

Sammy is stuck on the top rope and Hobbs snarls as he storms up after him! Hobbs brings Sammy up for the scoop! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM THROUGH THE TABLE!! Cover, Hobbs wins!!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are ready for another fight with the BCC, but for right now, they’ve got the STP! Will the #TopGuys still be FTR? Or will Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor himself prove they’re in that conversation now?

The teams sort out and Dax starts against #TAIGASTYLE. Lee and Dax tie up, Lee waistlocks and headlocks, then wrenches to hammerlock. Lee shoves Dax then claps at him, but Dax keeps it cool. Dax tags Cash, Cash runs up but Lee avoids him. The two feel things out, tie up and go around, then break the deadlock. They reset, tie up again, and Lee wrenches to spin Cash and wrangle him. Lee steps over, has La Magistrol, TWO! Lee pushes Cash around and then dances at him. Cash storms up but Lee backs off. Lee smirks at Cash then resets with him. They tie up, Lee headlocks, but Cash powers out.

Cash drops, drops, and hurdles to then ELBOW Lee down! Then arm-drag! Cash has the armlock and he slaps Lee around. Cash tags Dax, whips Lee, drop toehold and elbow drop! Fans rally up and Dax brings Lee up. Dax wrenches but Lee powers him to the corner! Tag to Shane but Dax gets away. Shane and Dax circle, talk some trash, and tie up. Dax headlocks, Shane powers up and out, but Dax RAMS him! Shane says not today! Dax runs again, RAMS again, but Shane stays up. Dax RAMS Shane again, and again, but Shane scoops! Dax slips free, waistlocks, but Shane bucks the O’Conner. Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges, but stays back to avoid hands.

The fans fire up as Dax and Shane reset, tie up, and Dax headlocks. Shane powers up and out, Dax SHOTGUNS him! Shane comes back but Dax avoids the senton! Dax wrenches, but Shane LARIATS! Shane drags Dax up, tags Lee, and STP mugs Dax. Lee throws knees, snapmares Dax and basement dropkicks! Lee drags Dax up, ROCKS hi, but Dax puts him in a corner to CHOP! And CHOP! Dax brings Lee around, wrenches, but Lee ROCKS Dax! And CHOPS him! Dax CHOPS again! And again! Lee swings, Dax ducks and picks Lee up, but Shane tags in before the atomic drop! Lee hobbles away, Dax ROCKS Shane!

Dax runs up to whip Lee but Lee reverses. Dax rebounds off buckles to CLOBBER Lee, but Shane CLOBBERS Dax! Cover, TWO! Dax survives, Shane talks trash on Cash, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Dax up, puts him in a corner, then winds up to CHOP! Dax sputters and Shane talks more trash. Shane stands Dax up, winds up, and CHOPS again! Shane keeps Dax in the corner, whips him corner to corner hard, and Dax falls back! Shane talks more trash to Cash but the ref keeps Cash back. Shane tags Lee, STP mugs Dax and Lee puts Dax in a corner. Lee fires forearms, then climbs up to rain down fists! Lee gloats but Dax CHOPS from below! Lee stomps but Dax CHOPS! They clinch, go around, and end up on ropes. Shane tags in, he throws hands on Dax! Shane scoops and SLAMS Dax, then stares Cash down while Collision goes to break.

Trios Triple Threat: Private Party & Matt Sydal VS Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Bryan Keith, Komander & Penta El Zero Miedo!

With all the trios titles belonging to the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, many others are trying their hands at the trios game. Will Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen and the Zen Assassin open their third eyes? Will Dante, Darius & The Sight to See be flying high? Or will the Bounty Hunter, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion and The Man with No Fear steal the spotlight from them all?

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle. They tie up, go around, and Sydal headlocks for a takeover. Action stands up but Sydal hits another takeover. Sydal then snapmares but Action handsprings through! Fans cheer and the two go again. Sydal tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Action handsprings through again! Action dusts himself off, but Sydal runs up. Action wrenches, CHOPS, and then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG!

The fans rally as Zay dodges Keith, fires “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” and then ROCKS Keith. Zay whips, Keith reverses, but Zay goes up and Quen tags in. Zay RANAS Keith into Quen’s GAMANGIRI! Then Quen springboards to SPLASH Keith! Cover, TWO! Keith is still in this and he tags out to Penta! The fans fire up as Penta somersaults in, but Quen shows he can somersault, too. The fans rally for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tells Quen to listen, CERO! MIEDO! Queen says okay, but “What do we want? SHOTS!” Quen shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove. The fans fire up, and Penta makes the pass to Alex Abrahantes!

Penta says again, CERO! MIEDO! Another pie face, but Dante tags in off Quen. Dante shoves Penta but then Komander tags in. Quen jumps on Dante, he and Penta mug him, and then everyone else rushes in! It’s a nine man melee and the ref reprimands them all! Things spill out, Dante and Komander stay in. Dante breaks free to JUMP KNEE, then runs, but Komander dodges! Dante mule kicks, whips, but Komander reverses to hook Dante up, COBRA TWIST, into a tilt-o-whirl RANA! Fans fire up as Dante flounders to a corner. Komander runs corner to corner but Dante dodges!

Komander tags Penta before he runs in, but Dante jumps up and over! Penta runs in to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Dante staggers up, into a SUPERKICK! Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

Komander feeds Dante to Keith’s fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, Zay breaks it! The fans rally, Quen tags in off Keith, and Quen stomps away on Action as Rampage goes picture in picture!

Quen stomps and stomps but the ref counts. Quen lets off to drag Action up and bump him off buckles. Quen runs up to RAM Action, then tags in Zay. Private Party keeps Action trapped, Zay ENZIGIRIS Action down! Zay stomps now, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Zay lets off to kick-step, then he tags Sydal. They stomp Action, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Sydal lets off to rally the fans, then he drags Action up. Action throws body shots but Sydal CLUBS him down. Sydal stands Action up again to back suplex, but Action lands out, only for Sydal to HEEL KICK! Tag to Quen and Quen slingshot SENTONS!

But Penta’s right there! APRON FEAR FACTOR!! Penta rises but Zay springboards, triangle jump STUNNER! Quen gets in, Zay gives him the boost to go up and up and SUPER SWANTON onto everyone else!!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & Bryan Keith, by pinfall

A huge win for this eccentric trio, will they be hunting down The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass? Or will they try for the Bullet Club Gold’s gold instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

After taking a week off for the NBA All-Star Game, Saturday nights are once again good for a fight. Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb each return to in-ring action, will these two rivals keep pace in the chase for gold? And we just saw Bryan Keith win big in the trios match, but he’ll jump right back into singles action against Malakai Black! Will the Bounty Hunter get another big win in his hunt for opportunity? Or will the Dark Father prove the House Always Wins?

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya and Harley and isn’t sure how much they’ve been watching Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker, but those two are off on their path of romance. Saraya DGAF about Soho x Parker!! She has things going on, too! That traitor isn’t getting under her skin even a little bit! Harley calms Saraya down, and they do breathing exercises. Why’s Harley flicking her tongue when she does that…? But Saraya wants to talk business. Y’know how her family is big famous wrestling royalty in the UK? Well, see, she has a special announcement. Her brother, “Zodiac” Zak Knight, has just become All Elite!!

Saraya has her brother walk into frame, and yeah, he’s scary, right? Zak could’ve been yours, Ruby! Saraya was gonna set Ruby up with him, “the most eligible bachelor in the Norwich area!” And Ruby messed that up just to be with that greasy, slimy, whatever Parker is! Harley says yeah! Just look at Zak! Isn’t he hot? He’s so hot! The whole Knight family is hot! Saraya is a bit taken aback by that, and she sprays water at Harley. Harley just embraces it so that doesn’t make for a good deterrent anymore… Saraya says it’s okay, Harley’s about to be fixed. But Saraya also promises, “Things are about to get really spicy around here.”

The Outcasts head out, and Zak’s scowl scares Renee a bit. Will Ruby & Parker regret making their romance public?

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson used, or rather abused, their power as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW to have an AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution. However, they are also very upset at the continued disrespect. Will that really stop after they take their frustrations out on these young indie guys?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Lyons. Nick doesn’t even bother taking off his trilby (or is it a fedora?) as he circles with Lyons. Nick calls for a knuckle lock but then kicks low and CLUBS away! The fans boo but Nick soaks it up. Nick whips Lyons, Lyons reverses but Matt tags in. Nick hurdles then whips Lyons, Lyons ducks Nick but Matt CLOBBERS him! Matt takes off his suit jacket to then drags Lyons up. Matt TOSSES Lyons to the corner, Lyons tags in Cappuccino! The fans fire up for Cappuccino as he circles with Matt. Matt mockingly applauds, also calls for a knuckle lock, but also kicks low!

Matt CLUBS away on Cappuccino, just like Nick, but then Matt cools off. Matt brings Cappuccino up to throw hands, whips him to ropes, but fakes the superkick to DDT instead! Fans boo but Matt drags Cappuccino up. Matt whips Cappuccino to the corner, he and Nick coordinate to LARIAT GAMANGIRI COMBO! Tag to Nick, he BLASTS Lyons, and then Matt whips Nick in so he can go up and over and PENALTY KICK Lyons! Matt stomps Cappuccino, stands him up, then HOTSHOTS him into Nick’s DISCUS LARIAT! Tag back to Matt and he drags Cappuccino up. The fans rally as hard as they can, but Cappuccino gets the MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Well, turns out they call that the “Tony Khan Driver” now, seems they don’t care to be associated with the Wrestling Observer anymore. But then they feel disrespected when the ref hesitates to raise their hands? Nick gets the mic to tell Paul Turner that when he raises their hand, what name did he use? Did he really just call him “Nick?” That is disrespectful! Next time, it’s a fine! And Schiavone, please, join them in the ring. Fans boo and Schiavone isn’t sure what to do. But they are EVPs, he doesn’t really have a choice… Schiavone joins the Bucks, and Nick promises they won’t harm him.

Last week, Schiavone was in the ring with them and Nick swears, he tripped on his own shoe, knocked into Schiavone and that is why Schiavone fell over. Nick wants to make it clear, and he apologizes for that. Matt says to show how sorry they are, and how much they love him, they got him a $25 Amazon gift card. They are sorry, Schiavone, but that isn’t the only thing they’re sorry about. See, they’re also sorry that, uh… they can’t get the bloodstains left by Darby Allin & Sting out of their $5,000 suits. Schiavone says yes, that is a problem… Will they rescind the $1,000 fine on them by any chance?

Sorry, no, they can’t do that. But there are a couple things that they won’t be sorry about. The first thing is beating the hell out of Darby for all the trash he talked about them publicly. The second thing, and this is one Schiavone will really like, is them taking Sting and pinning him to the mat, saying goodbye to one of the most legendary careers in all of pro-wrestling! Fans boo but Matt continues to tell “Stinger,” call them Father Time. Because just like time, the Bucks are undefeated. And just like time, the Bucks are coming for Sting! “Now everybody, let’s have a great show! There’s a great line-up on the way!

“Tony’s over there at the desk, he’s one of the best play by play guys in the business! C’mon, everybody! AEW chant on three? One, two, three! A E DUB! A E DUB! Alright, let’s go~!” Matt fist bumps Schiavone, then leaves with Nick. The farce continues, but will there be nothing even Darby & Sting can do about it? Or will the Icon still find a way to retire on top?

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Rampage returns and he welcomes a young man who has had a busy year. He’s a brand new father but fighting the Don Callis Family, it’s Sammy Guevara! Tulsa cheers as The Spanish God heads to the ring, back on his feet after the ambush by Will Hobbs. Schiavone shakes hands with Sammy, and Schiavone congratulates Sammy on last week’s win against Jeff Hardy. But now, to the comments Callis had for Sammy just last Wednesday Night Dynamite. The insults he hurled at Sammy, Callis clearly has it out for him.

Sammy says it is a mix of emotions. Last week, he got in the ring with a childhood hero in Jeff Hardy. But on the other hand, he’s pissed off because Hobbs put him through a table! Sammy tells Hobbs that Sammy always knew Hobbs had endless potential, and superstardom written all over him. But he can do that all on his own! Hobbs doesn’t need Callis sucking the life out of Hobbs’ career! Hobbs is a star all on his own, but it’s too late now for him to figure that out because he’s pissed Sammy off. So enough talk! Get your ass out here so they can fight! The Don Callis Family music plays, but it’s only Callis walking out here.

Callis has a mic to taunt Sammy, “Look, everybody! It’s Mr. Mom! You’re back at work after nursing the child. I mean, the only thing you’ve done of any note in the last six months is reproduce, and you shouldn’t be proud of that. Dogs do it. Even these people can do it!” Fans boo but Callis says Sammy used to be a great athlete. He used to be a guy Callis wanted in the Family. But now, Sammy has become like so many others: a weak, pathetic little cuck! Sammy doesn’t get what Callis is doing repeating himself, but then HOBBS gets in from the crowd side! Sammy dodges, SUPERKICKS, and Hobbs bails out!

Sammy eggs Hobbs on, then builds speed, to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Hobbs! Sammy says bang bang, and he gets a chair! Sammy winds up to SMACK Hobbs on the back! Hobbs hobbles but gets in the ring. Sammy pursues, aims again, and he JAMS Hobbs low! Then SMACKS him on the back! Sammy throws off the jacket, waits on Hobbs to turn around, but Hobbs fights off the torture rack to LARIAT Sammy inside out!! Callis smiles as he tells Hobbs to end this! SPINEBUSTER! And then another SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs is gonna do Sammy like he did Jericho! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!

Hobbs stands over Sammy and Callis applauds. The Powerhouse has all but pulverized Sammy, and Callis even gets his shots in! Will the Don Callis Family make sure there’s nothing left of Sammy to go home to his wife and daughter by the end of this?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“I had that match. I had it won, if it wasn’t for that bald headed, sad, poor excuse of a man, I would’ve had it and I deserved it. I had that win and I deserved it, on my own.” Julia Hart calms her down and says it’s okay. They will have their comeuppance. And while seeking their revenge, they will dig three graves: one for Willow, for Kris, and for Stokely. But who does Skye want first? Whoever will step up. Whoever has the balls enough to step up and fight her! Will the Chicago Skye continue to darken until she blots out the light?

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

Toni Storm’s superfan still wants to prove herself to her hero, but that really depends on if Storm is even watching this. Will Mariah finally have Storm’s approval? Or will the Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they go along the ropes. They end up in a corner, get out of a corner, and Mariah pulls hair. The ref counts, Mariah lets off and shoves Anna, but Anna doesn’t budge! Anna smirks as she and Mariah rest and tie up. Anna waistlocks, shoves, but Mariah slides to sweep the legs! Mariah runs but Anna dodges the dropkick! Anna runs to BLOCKBUSTER! Anna then ROCKS Mariah, whips her, but Mariah reverses to ROCK Anna! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah brings Anna around to bump off buckles, and CHOP again!

Mariah eggs Anna on so Anna CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then digs her boot in as Rampage goes picture in picture!

The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, and she brings Anna into ropes to hook her up. The ref counts as Mariah chinlocks Anna against ropes, but she lets off at 4. Mariah kisses Anna on the cheek, then runs to DROPKICK Anna in the back! Anna falls out of the ropes and Mariah soaks up the heat. Mariah stands Anna up, runs, and SHOTGUNS her down! Anna flounders out of the ring and Mariah takes a bow. Mariah then goes out to stalk Anna, and she brings Anna around the way. Mariah puts Anna against barriers to CHOP her! And SPANK her! Mariah laughs while Anna hobbles away. Mariah pursues to then CHOP again!

Anna is stinging while Mariah dusts herself off. Mariah hears the count but she whips Anna into the barriers first! Mariah then leaves Anna behind and “apologizes” to the ref. Mariah goes back out after Anna, soaks up the heat, and vogues for the camera. But Anna throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS back! Mariah pushes Anna into the ring, takes her time posing before going back in, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Anna whips Mariah to a corner. Mariah slips out to the apron, avoids Anna’s haymaker, and ROUNDHOUSES in return! Anna staggers, Mariah shouts and climbs up, but Anna ROCKS her! Anna then gets space, runs up, and HEEL KICKS! Anna then wrenches the arms, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Anna grows frustrated but she drags Mariah up and hooks the arms. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

Anna hops on as a backpack, but Mariah RAMS her into buckles! Mariah is free, and she puts Anna up top. Mariah DOUBLE CHOPS, then gets some space. Mariah runs up to STRATUSPHERE! Anna flounders away and Mariah shouts out Storm! Mariah runs up, but the hip attack misses! Anna runs up to kick, dragon sleeper, and BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO?!? Mariah survives and Anna grows frustrated! The fans rally as Anna sits Mariah up, into the QUEEN- NO, Mariah blocks the sleeper! Anna fights through to have the QUEENSLAYER! Mariah flails, reaches out, but she BITES Anna’s arm!!

The ref reprimands but Mariah is free all the same! Fireman’s carry, MAYDAY DRIVER!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

One thing is for sure, Mariah is just as looney as her role model! Will she follow in Storm’s footsteps to become a champion in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is with the lovey-dovey couple, how’d the date go? Ruby says she felt it went really well. Parker is relieved, he didn’t wanna say it first and be wrong. It was incredible, everything he hoped it’d be, he had a great time. Renee points out that in the opposite direction, Saraya is becoming unraveled. If they didn’t hear her comments earlier, she had some rather choice words. And apparently, she was going to hook Ruby up with her brother? Ruby says that’s weird and Renee agrees. Plus, Zak is more like a poor man’s Tom Hardy, big pass. Parker isn’t sure being Norwich’s Most Eligible Bachelor is a bad of honor, either. And honestly, “wrestling royalty?” That’s a stretch.

Ruby tells Saraya that she said she doesn’t care, that Ruby doesn’t get under her skin, but here’s the reality: for the last year, Saraya told Ruby that Ruby needed Saraya, when it was really the other way around. Saraya is sad and unhappy without Ruby. And say all you want about Ruby, but talk bad on Parker and that’s when they have problems. Ruby said she needed space, and in that space, she found something real. And Saraya may be sick of hearing it, of seeing it, but hey, why not invite everyone along? Bring the cameras, bring the crew, and they’ll shove this right down Saraya’s throat!

Parker’s pretty fired up. He says Ruby’s hot when she’s mad. Ruby thanks him for the compliment, and the two head out to get some drinks. Will they make Saraya so sick of love she’ll never dare speak their names again?

 

Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Jake Hager w/ Hornsby!

The Undisputed Kingdom were bullying Orange Cassidy, and apparently the Big Hurt didn’t like seeing that. Will Oklahoma’s own break the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will Roddy be too strong even for the All-American Sooner?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hager and Hornsby. Roddy and Hager circle, tie up, and Hager powers Roddy to a corner. Roddy slips free, shoves Hager, and fans boo. The two reset, they circle again, and Roddy gets around to waistlock. Roddy then turns Hager around to CHOP, but Hager doesn’t budge! Fans fire up and Roddy is a bit scared, so Roddy bails out. The Kingdom pep talk Roddy while the ring count climbs. Roddy hurries in, dodges Hager, then things speed up. Roddy leaps but Hager catches him! Hager puts Roddy in a corner, runs up but into a BOOT! Roddy CHOPS, but Hager catches it?!

Fans fire up as Hager TOSSES Roddy, then CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! Hager whips corner to corner hard, runs up, but Rodd bails out again!

Despite having back-up and the power-up, Hager still couldn’t beat the numbers game! Roddy is rolling towards Revolution, will he be taking the International title away from Cassidy?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage that was again booked to have story. The Bucks of course won their match, but they did what I was hoping they’d do in changing up their style. They purposefully didn’t use superkicks, and then they are apparently changing up the names of their finishers as if to say Heel Bucks don’t care about their YouTube show or Dave Meltzer. Their post match promo was good, too, but it didn’t really add too much more to the heat they’ve already got. And pretty good promos out of this Ruby VS Saraya story. I thought Ruby VS Saraya was just going to be the thing, but now it feels like they might give us a Mixed Tag of Ruby & Parker VS Saraya & Zak.

Really good Trios Triple Threat to open, and I love that it was Keith, Komander & Penta winning rather than taking a loss to the established-ish trios. The feud of Private Party and Top Flight really needs to be settled by just those teams anyway. Pretty good promo from Sammy Guevara to call out the Don Callis Family, but of course it turned into Hobbs beating Sammy up. Good promo from Skye and Julia, I really thought AEW would’ve figured out a contender to the TBS Championship by now, but maybe that’ll happen very quickly in the next week. Really good match from Mariah May and Anna Jay, and a really good win for Mariah. But you can bet Storm didn’t pay attention to this at all, just like the other times.

And very good main event from Hager VS Roddy, with The Kingdom of course overbooking this. The bit with Hornsby was fun, and Cassidy showing up was also a logical move. I like that Hager’s hat is now the same as Cassidy putting hands in his pockets, but of course Hager lost out. Roddy needs momentum going into the title match so he had to win this one, and he probably just waits it out while Cassidy gets worn down. But at this point, it’ll probably still take a lot of cheating for Roddy to win the International title and bring it into The Undisputed Kingdom.

My Score: 8.7/10
