Join McKenzie Mitchell, Beth Phoenix and Sam Roberts in discussing, analyzing and predicting the biggest event in NXT 2.0 history!

Kayla Braxton and Peter Rosenberg are even on site at AT&T Stadium for WrestleMania 38 later today, but they join in on the Stand & Deliver predictions!


NXT share Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams taking in the sights.

Trick says, “Yo, Melo. You realize that for the past five months, you’ve been running the game? Imagine tomorrow at Stand & Deliver. You get your final Infinity Stone, brother. It’s time for you to snap.” Melo says it is. Everything that the light touches will be his. Being up here in Reunion Tower, it reminds him of the height that he’s brought the title to, and the heights he will continue to take it. He will stand atop the ladder and be atop as the greatest North American Champion of all time. And everyone will realize, when Melo shoots, he don’t miss.


Malcolm Bivens joins the panel.

Today is big money, it doesn’t get any bigger than this. He can’t wait to have the ducketts, the cheddar, the mulah, the coins in his pocket. Sam says that could happen, but there are other things to consider. Just standing by Imperium, money was the last thing on his mind. Sam felt in danger, and he was just talking to them! How can the Creed Brothers contend with a force that? Uh, he just said they were broke! MONEY is the most powerful force! No, Sam didn’t say that. He said they were scary. Well he’s easily scared. He looks scared now! But it is hard to argue against former tag champions in MSK.

No disrespect to Imperium, Beth is with MSK. They won the Dusty Cup, won the titles, they innovate, this is their night as Beth sees it. Sam is going with the Creeds cuz Bivens is staring him down. Big money! McKenzie is sure everyone is torn. But why didn’t McKenzie ask Bivens his choice? Well, uh… But wait! Edris Enofe interrupts on the tron! Tonight ain’t about the Creeds, MSK or Imperium! It’s about his boy, Malik da Freak! Bro, c’mon! Is this gift basket enough? Enofe says that ain’t what she’ll be worried about. Dude, c’mon! Malik just thought this would be nice. It is nice. Maybe they should just leave it.

No way! Man up! Walk in! What’s the worst that can happen? He walks in, and Enofe just pranked Malik! This was the IMPERIUM dressing room! April Fools! Man, it’s April 2nd! Now he’s scarred for life…


NXT hears from Grayson Waller.

He sits on a longhorn bull statue as he says, “A ladder match for the North American Championship at Stand & Deliver, and what better place than the Lone Star State.” Melo’s been great and all but his time is up. It’s time the title went viral! Waller likes the view here but he’ll like it better on the ladder. Only one man will do what it takes and that man is Waller! WrestleMania Weekend is gonna feel the Grayson Waller Effect, #AndNEW.


NXT hears from Santos Escobar & Legado del Fantasma.

“Last year, I climbed a ladder and made history. But this year’s ladder match is more important.” Stand & Deliver, with the whole world watching, they will witness Escobar become the greatest luchador of all time! Escobar leaves four others in the dust, climbs the ladder, and grabs the North American Championship! He’ll do it for history, for legacy, and for family. Legado del Fantasma!


#InDex is at Byrd’s Wester Store.

Indi Hartwell & Dexter Lumis are getting ready to take on #Dusia. They are gonna look so hot at Stand & Deliver. They will make Dexter the sexiest cowboy in Texas. He gives a thumbs up, and they get to browsing. Nice leather belt. He planning on using that on her tonight? But meanwhile, Duke Hudson & Persia Pirotta are also shopping. They’ve been here an hour but that’s never been a problem for them before, right? Hat, boots, and Dexter! What’re they doing here? Same back to you! Persia is gonna make Duke the sexiest. No, Dexter will be! Sexy Dexy! Sexy Duke! That sounds horrible. No it doesn’t!

Montage of outfits, and Dexter almost gets Duke with a belt! Things get a bit frisky, but in the end, the looks are in. What will the WWE Universe think?

#Dusia is here live, as is #InDex. Use the right hashtags to vote for your favorite couple. Persia and Indi argue, the boys stare down, and Akbar Gbaja-Biamila has joined the panel. He’s Team InDex all the way!

NXT hears from Cameron Grimes.

“They say that the journey is better than the destination. Well this journey’s definitely been a struggle, and tomorrow will be no different. Five men want the same thing: to be called a champion. The other four men, they want acknowledgment, fame, clout and legacy. But I, I have a promise to fulfill. I told my father I would be champion. And this is my last chance at Stand & Deliver. Dad, I’m taking the North American Championship to the moon.”


High noon in the Lone Star State.

This is WrestleMania Weekend, and the superstars of NXT stand on the doorstep to immortality. They all vow to stand, to deliver on promises they’ve made to us, and to themselves. “We stand on the shoulders of giants.” They vow to stand victorious, to stand as champions, and to deliver instant classics, and to take one step closer to greatness. This IS NXT Stand & Deliver!

Joe Gacy speaks.

“Here it is, Harland. The famous Dealey Plaza. In November, 1963, the world stopped as there was a tragedy in these streets. And on that day, the nation, the world, came together as one. But why is it that only tragedy unites us when it should be triumph? There has to be a better way. I put that on my shoulders. I make it my responsibility. I will unite people. I can only hope you freely choose peace so we don’t have to suffer loss or tragedy ever again. But that depends on all of you, now doesn’t it?” Gacy sends out quite the veiled threat. Will anyone choose to join him? Or will they defy him?

McKenzie is with #InDex and #Dusia, and Persia gives Duke one more kiss for luck. The winner of the fan poll is… INDEX! 89% to 11% is a landslide, but Persia insists there needs to be a recount! There’s no way this is right! Duke slaps the hat off Dexter but Dexter goes to choke Duke! The ladies keep them apart, but they argue the results just as much.

Der Ring General got more of a fight than he expected out of Knight, but he is still the one standing tall! Will Gunther continue to deliver punishing performances until he is on top of NXT?


NXT Championship: Dolph Ziggler w/ Robert Roode VS Bron Breakker!

The Show-Off showing up in NXT was surprising enough, but him winning this title was shocking! Of course, he did have GLORIOUS back-up helping him. But that was in a Triple Threat. Will the Dirty Dawgs be able to pull off another screw job? Or will the biggest moment in young Bron’s career be his moment to shine?

Bron wears all white in his singlet, but he grabs himself an NXT 2.0 colored chainsaw! And he uses that chainsaw to literally cut down an old school NXT logo! The Dawgs then make their entrance, the introductions are made, and then Ziggler SLAPS Bron! The ref has to keep Bron back, then the belt is raised. The bell rings, and Bron TACKLES Ziggler to the corner! Bron fires off on Ziggler, Ziggler bails out but Bron chases after! Fans fire up, Bron puts Ziggler in the ring, but Ziggler gets right on Bron with fists! Ziggler digs his knee in, but lets off as the ref counts.

Ziggler waits for Bron to return but Bron gets under the superkick! BIG back suplex! Bron looms over Ziggler, drags him up and bumps him off buckles. Bron puts Ziggler up top, climbs up after him, but Ziggler slips out and trips Bron up! Bron gets stuck on the top, Ziggler steadies himself and comes back, for a SUPER NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Ziggler hurries to wrap on a SLEEPER HOLD! Bron endures, Ziggler pushes up for pressure, but Bron is still in this.

Bron fights up, fans rally and Bron pries free to throw body shots! Ziggler kicks Bron’s leg out to then turn him, NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Ziggler drops an elbow! Cover, TWO! But Ziggler clamps onto a CROSSFACE! Bron endures, fans rally again, and Bron moves around. Bron gets back up, throws more body shots, but Ziggler shoves him into ropes!

Bron pries at the hold, reaches out for ropes, but he’s also turning purple! Ziggler drags Bron from ropes and then bridges to put on more torque!

Ziggler kicks low, kicks the legs out, then scrapes laces on Bron’s face! Fans boo but Ziggler soaks up the heat.,

Ziggler turns Bro, swivels hips, but Bron powers out to run Ziggler over! And again! Bron reels Ziggler back in, OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Bron whips, tilt-o-whirl scoop, for a SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! Bron grows frustrated but he also clutches his neck. Ziggler is in the corner, Bron storms over. Bron drags Ziggler up, fans duel, and Bron puts Ziggler up top. Bron climbs up after Ziggler, and he goes to the very top! Shout out to his uncle, SUPER STEINER! Cover, TWO! Ziggler survives again and the frustration is growing in Bron. Bron glares as he aims from a corner. Ziggler gets up, Bron runs in, into a KNEE!

Ziggler is shocked that Bron didn’t fall! Bron runs, Ziggler hurdles, SPEAR on the return! Cover, TWO!! Ziggler survives again and no one can believe it! Bron grits his teeth, drags Ziggler up and choke grips. Ziggler wants mercy, but then he YANKS Bron out of the ring! Bron gets back in, into a RUNNING BOOT! Cover, TWO!! Ziggler is beside himself as Bron survives that shot. Ziggler slaps sense into himself and goes to a corner. Fans rally and Ziggler starts tuning up the band! Bron stands, but he blocks the superkick! Bron shoves Ziggler away then SPEARS him again! Fans fire up and bark it up as Bron drags Ziggler up!

Bron trophy lifts Ziggler and carries him, for the BREAKKER SLAM! Cover, but Roode returns?! Roode drags Ziggler out of the ring! The ref tries to stop Bron, Roode argues with the ref, and Roode says Ziggler doesn’t need this. But Bron builds speed to FLY! Direct hit on both Dawgs! Bron almost loses his singlet but the fans are fired up again! Bron drags Ziggler back into the ring, then he goes after Roode! Bron RAMS Roode into steel steps! The ring count is climbing, Bron gets in at 9 of 10. Ziggler is there, FAMOUSER!! And ZIGZAG!! Cover, TWO!?!? Bron survives and Ziggler is losing his mind!

Fans chant for “NXT! NXT!” as Ziggler goes back to a corner. Ziggler goes up the corner, leaps, MACHO ELBOW! Cover, TWO!! Bron is still in this but Ziggler gets to another corner. Ziggler tunes up the band again, fans fire up, but Bron is standing right up! Ziggler shakes his head, he can’t believe this! Bron LARIATS, then SPEARS! And then Bron drags Ziggler back up, trophy lifts him again, but Ziggler rakes eyes! BARE BUCKLE SHOT! SUPERKICK!!! Cover, Ziggler wins!!?

Winner: Dolph Ziggler, by pinfall (still NXT Champion)

He had Roode and a bare buckle help him survive, and Ziggler sure stole this title! Will the Show-Off continue to hold this title by any means necessary? What will it take for Bron to get back on top?

My Thoughts:

A great event for NXT to get back out on the road with, but sadly so much of it showed that this is Vince’s NXT, not HHH’s. The kickoff show was good, with great promos from the North American Championship field, and a rather… controversial basis for Gacy’s promo. But I suppose as a Heel, Gacy would indirectly want to bring up JFK’s assassination… Then that whole montage with #InDex and #Dusia, at least it all happened on the kickoff show and not part of the main show. We got a great Women’s Tag Team Championship match, and it seems that Wendy Choo is totally okay with Dakota going back to Raquel. Great win for Raquel & Dakota, they become two-time tag champs together, and perhaps will get to make up for their insanely short first run back in the black ‘n’ gold days.

But with Toxic Attraction losing the tag titles, I figured they were going to hold onto the singles title. The Fatal 4 Way was awesome stuff, and it was clear from the entrances that it was between Cora and Mandy. But seeing as how Mandy had Robert Roode’s old GLORIOUS Podium while Cora had other skateboarders kinda awkwardly going around the stage, Mandy had the stronger entrance and she capitalized on Shirai taking Cora down. Shirai is certainly moving on to RawDown, KLR and Cora can still try 1v1, but it sadly feels like it’ll be a long time before Mandy loses this belt the way they’re booking her.

Opening with the North American Championship Ladder match was an awesome choice because that was an awesome match. It was “overbooked” with Sanga, Legado and Trick all ringside, but it worked out for amazing extra spots like Lopez leaping from the top and Trick falling from the ladder. The one spot that was the roughest thing all night was Waller and those ladder bridges. Obviously, any spot with a ladder or table runs the risk of injury, but this one was really bad. Hopefully he’s only banged up, not dealing with a dislocation or break. Waller’s been on a strong Heel run, it’d be a shame if it stopped now. Especially with Grimes winning that belt! What a great moment for him, and it was pretty clear it was happening with this all being dedicated to his dad.

Ciampa VS Tony was some really good stuff, both with good custom intros, but man, that was an anticlimactic way for Tony to win. I get it, tradition says the guy leaving loses. But c’mon! It’s Ciampa! And couldn’t they have booked a better finish than that? I almost didn’t realize the DDT happened until Ciampa was the one in a bad way. Tony wins and I’m sure he’ll go for a title now, while Ciampa will surely be full time on Raw since we even saw him in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal last night. Maybe Ciampa can hit the ground running with a midcard title feud. Balor seems busy with Priest and Theory so maybe SmackDown to face Ricochet?

The NXT Tag Team title Triple Threat was awesome stuff, too, but I really thought we were going to get interference from the Creed Brothers’ stalkers. Guess that’s being saved for the post-Mania NXT, even though it made way more sense if it was here. But even so, still made sense for MSK to win. Imperium was at the disadvantage, and clearly Creeds have this feud coming up, MSK can carry these belts and either feud with Imperium more or take on any number of the other teams in NXT. Knight VS Gunther was great stuff, and of course Gunther was winning. Fans still want to chant “WAL~TER!” and I still wanna type it, but one way or another, Der Ring General is going to be climbing up the ranks.

But then there’s the main event. I just don’t get it. Bron got another of his “I’m smashing the past to be the future” type entrances, he and Ziggler were doing great stuff, going back and forth, and there were still some rough edges being smoothed out at the beginning with miscues, but I just don’t get why Ziggler won. It’s obvious how he won, but why? Why book Bron like he’s NXT Superman and going to defy everything to get that belt back, only for this to happen? Vince’s brain just seems out of alignment when it comes to writing this stuff. I bet if you gave him peanut butter, jelly and bread, he’d somehow use them to make a salad.

My Score: 8.7/10

And Ricky, you sure as Hell won’t succeed tonight either.” Will the American Dragon once again slay the Absolute?


AEW TNT Championship Triple Threat: Luchasaurus VS Christian Cage VS Darby Allin!

As the Relentless One just said, this might as well be a Handicap Match, because you can bet Captain Charisma and his Right Hand of Destruction are united in destroying Darby. Will Darby even survive this match? Or will he find a way back to former glory?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who really wears that title after this!

The bell rings and Darby is wary of his enemies. Fans rally for Darby, but Christian bails so this turns into a 1v1 match. Luchasaurus and Darby circle, and Luchasaurus taunts Darby with a test of strength. Darby throws POCKET SAND! And then he DIVES onto Christian! Darby RAMS Christian into steel steps, then puts him in the ring! Darby hurries to CODE RED! Cover, TWO!! Darby keeps moving and he DIVES onto Luchasaurus! Down goes the dinosaur! But Christian pokes Darby in the eyes, and HOTSHOTS him to the floor! Luchasaurus is up and he drags Darby over to RAM into railing!

Fans rally for Darby but Luchasaurus is on him again! Luchasaurus whips Darby into more railing! Fans actually duel as Luchasaurus fetches a chair for Christian then puts Darby in. Christian soaks up the cheers and jeers, then he sits Darby in the chair to CHOKE him on the ropes! Christian stands on Darby, the ref reprimands but there’s nothing to be done in a Triple Threat. Christian drags Darby up, and CHOKES him against the chair’s back! Christian says Darby did this to himself. But then Darby throws hands! Luchasaurus CHOKES Christian, then BACK SUPLEXES him and the chair!

Luchasaurus goes to cover but Christian tells him no, they need to do more damage. Luchasaurus goes out to fetch more items, but Christian covers Darby! TWO! Darby is still in this but Christian TOSSES him out! Christian goes out to stand Darby up, and CHOPS him against the railing! Darby staggers, Christian and Luchasaurus surround him, then they double whip him hard into steel steps! Darby tumbles up and over, fans boo Christian, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Christian flexes, then stalks Darby. Christian SMACKS Darby off steps, then Luchasaurus brings Darby around to CHOP against the apron. Darby flops over and Christian is there to whip him into more railing! Darby staggers all around, Christian & Luchasaurus stalk him to the other corner. Christian gets the chair again to JAM Darby! And again! Darby staggers and stumbles away but Christian follows after. Christian pushes Darby into the ring, then brings him up. Christian has Luchasaurus stand back. Christian talks trash right to Darby’s face, pie faces him and smears the face pain before he CHOPS and CHOPS!

Christian tells Luchasaurus what to do, then he runs at Darby. Darby dodges to send Christian out! Darby fires off on Luchasaurus, but Luchasaurus shoves him back and HEADBUTTS him down! Luchasaurus stands on Darby’s back! Darby endures, even as Luchasaurus steps all over him! Darby crawls to a corner, Luchasaurus brings him up and Christian throws hands on Darby! Collision returns to single picture as the mugging moves to the corner. Fans boo as Christian & Luchasaurus double whip Darby into a corner. Luchasaurus runs in but Darby dodges and Luchasaurus POSTS himself!

Fans fire up as Christian runs in, Darby dodges and he POSTS himself! Roll up, TWO! Oklahoma roll, TWO! Christian kicks low to suplex, but Darby slips out, SCORPION DEATH DROP! Fans fire up as Darby climbs! But Luchasaurus drags Christian to safety! So Darby just SUPER COFFIN SPLASHES!! Fans are thunderous as both men go down! Darby puts Luchasaurus in the ring, climbs up, and Luchasaurus stands. Darby MISSILE- NO, Luchasaurus catches him! JURASSIC- NO, Darby slips out! Darby BOOTS Luchasaurus, then hits a DIAMOND DUST! But Christian has the title belt!

Christian aims but Darby ducks! SHOTGUN! Down goes Christian! Darby runs in but Luchasaurus catches him, JURASSIC CHOKE SLAM! Darby flops out of the ring and Luchasaurus sees the belt. It is rightfully his, so he picks it up! Fans cheer that he finally holds HIS belt! Christian storms in but Luchasaurus won’t give it back! Christian asks for the belt back, fans say “IT’S YOUR BELT! IT’S YOUR BELT!” Luchasaurus still hands the belt over to Christian, but then Darby shoves Christian into Luchasaurus! And then Darby BELT SHOTS Luchasaurus!! Cover, TWO?!? Luchasaurus survives  but Darby PENALTY KICKS!

Darby goes up to COFFIN DROP!! But Christian returns to POST Darby! Cover on Luchasaurus, CHRISTIAN WINS!!

Winner: Christian Cage, by pinfall (NEW AEW TNT Champion)

Well, at least now Christian will be rightfully holding onto this belt. Sleazy as he is, Captain Charisma truly reigns as the Face of TNT, will Darby have to move on to a new goal? As for Luchasaurus, he sees Christian’s hand be raised, and then Christian hugs him? Well, when one wins, they both win, right? Christian has Luchasaurus lift him onto his shoulders, then Christian raises the belt high above his head. Will Luchasaurus ever be his own man? Er, dinosaur.


Backstage interview with The Don Callis Family.

Alex Marvez is with Konosuke Takeshita, Sammy Guevara and Don Callis himself, and says that the wrestling world is buzzing with what we saw on Rampage. Kenny Omega and Chris Jericho are united, along with Kota Ibushi, and challenged the DCF for WrestleDream! Don says it makes him sick just thinking about Omega and Jericho on the same side, when Don is the one who put them both on the map! And now, they’re name dropping Kota Ibushi. Ibushi is a wrestling legend, but his weakness is Kenny Omega. Kenny Omega loves Kota Ibushi, they are closer than brothers, and that kind of emotion makes them weak! They always have been!

Don isn’t worried. As great as Omega, Jericho and Ibushi are, Don has Sammy Guevara, who left Jericho laying. Don has Konosuke, “The Alpha,” who earned that name when he beat Omega twice in one week! And Don has another family member. This man beat Jericho and Omega in the course of two months, and that is WILL OSPRAEY! So you want WrestleDream to become a nightmare? Don doesn’t think so. Omega, Ibushi & Jericho will face the strongest Don Callis Family ever! See you in Seattle, where they finish it once and for all!!


Backstage interview with Christian & Luchasaurus.

Collision returns as Tony Schiavone congratulates the NEW TNT Champion. Christian says yes, every legitimate title defense has solidified him as the UNDISPUTED TNT Champion! He dedicates this victory to Nick Wayne’s mom, and Nick Wayne’s late father, who must’ve been cheering Christian on from Heaven. But anyway, Christian is finally finished with Darby once and for all, bring on the next challenger! Actually, Tony Khan just announced that Christian’s first defense will be at WrestleDream in Seattle. And it will be a classic match-up. They’ve gone back and forth, so this will be BEST 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS!

Christian is furious! He storms off to find Tony Khan, but will it matter? Will Darby finally have justice against Captain Charisma?


Hook & Rob Van Dam VS Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker w/ Jake Hager & Anna Jay!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil just beat the former Jericho Appreciation Society members last night in a Mixed Six Tag with help from his new friends. But now he joins forces with an old friend of his dad’s! Will Hook and RVD prove they’re a one of a kind team? Or will they underestimate the sports… enner-tay-ners?

The teams sort out and fans are fired up for RVD already. RVD lets Hook start against Daddy Magic, though, and fans still rally behind Hook. They tie up, Menard arm-drags, and Menard gloats. Fans boo but Hook resets with Menard. They tie up, Hook waistlocks, hammerlocks, and he trips Menard to a facelock.

RVD waits as Menard & Parker talk strategy. Menard slowly returns, talks some trash, and he seems to call out Hook. RVD obliges and tags Hook in. Hook and Menard circle, then Menard kicks low! Menard whips Hook into Parker’s boot! The ref reprimands but Menard stomps Hook around. Menard soaks up the cheers and jeers, and then distracts the ref so Parker can CHOKE Hook!

Winners: Hook & Rob Van Dam, by pinfall

Michigan’s own comes back home and wins big! Will RVD have one more title run in him? Will Hook’s newest run not be stopped?


Eddie Kingston speaks.

He has two titles to defend now, with the ROH World Championship in one hand and the NJPW Strong Openweight Championship in the other. And he knows WrestleDream is AEW’s love letter to the late, great Antonio Inoki. The Mad King wants to face the man who best embodies Inoki’s vision today, and that is Katsuyori Shibata. This won’t be just about the NJPW Openweight but also the ROH World title. He wants Shibata to bring his all because that’s what Eddie is gonna do. But then, will Eddie remain the two belt king? Or will we soon see The Wrestler become a TRIPLE CHAMPION?


The Dark Order speaks.

John Silver says, “This world has gotten outta control.” Alex Reynolds says it’s just too much, too fast, and it needs to stop. Evil Uno asks us who we will turn to “when it’s all done?” Happy music plays over destruction and desolation. “You need structure. You need rules. You need order. The Dark Order! Because The Dark Order is good! And we’re here for you!” Uno sneaks in some Italian, “But not forever.” Will you trust these creepy grins? Will you #JoinDarkOrder?


The Kingdom speaks.

Matt Taven says “Neck health is important!” Best Friends are a bunch of liars! When Trent hurt his neck, was Chuck by his bedside? NO! And now these Melvins wanna take away what The Kingdom earned, what they deserve, their shot at the ROH World Tag Team titles!? They will show these dorks what people who don’t celebrate neck health deserve! And Mike Bennett says Chuckie T got some of that last night. A punch to the wiener and a piledriver! So next Saturday is piledrivers in support of neck health! And then they will see how close Best Friends really are, how strong they really are. They aren’t stronger than The Kingdom, and they damn sure ain’t #NeckStrong!


Julia Hart w/ Brody King VS Kiera Hogan!

The Lady of the House was truly Hartless against Skye Blue last night, bringing out The Babe with The Power. However, Willow Nightingale was then attacked backstage to keep her from competing tonight! So Skye’s other friend is stepping up! Will the Hottest Flame burn this witch down? Or will the House always win?

The bell rings and Kiera rushes up to ROCK Julia! And again and again! The fans rally up as Kiera whips Julia into ropes, runs side to side and HIP ATTACKS!

Julia drags Kiera up to throw her by her hair again. Brody says keep on Kiera, so Julia whips her to a corner. BACK ELBOW! Julia grins as she snapmares, and then KICKS Kiera in the back! Julia drags Kiera up, SMACKS her off the mat, and then runs, to BLINDSIDER! Julia says the House always wins. HARTLESS STRETCH!! Kiera taps, Julia wins!

Winner: Julia Hart, by submission

A 25-0 win streak for The Lady of the House, but she isn’t satisfied! She puts Kiera back into HARTLESS!! But here comes Skye Blue! She was on the other end of this so she’s making the save now! But again, Julia hides behind Brody. But then Brody moves and Julia BLACK MISTS Skye!! Julia strikes again! Brody asks, “Do you see this? Do you see this!? This will not end! This violence will not end! 25 matches, over two dozen bodies stacked, and this will not end until we get to the one. The last loss! KRIS STATLANDER! Next Sunday, Seattle, Washington, WrestleDream, put your TBS title on the line. Or the body count continues to rise.”

But Julia wants Kris to understand: The House ALWAYS wins. Will the Galaxy’s Greatest look to end the streak? Or will the TBS Championship fade to black?


The Righteous speak.

Death walks. You dig what they’re saying? Ol’ Vincent & Dutch are pure, are divine, and are the corpse of decency nailed to a post of greed and moral decay, draped under the shadow of purity. But now they expose MJF & Adam Cole, and purify the lie that is “Better Than You, Baybay.” You dig what they’re sayin’, man?


Jay White w/ Bullet Club Gold VS Andrade El Idolo!

The Switchblade and his Bang Bang Gang called out The Face of Latino Wrestling, saying White’s reputation is more widespread than Andrade’s. Will White make Andrade famous for losing to him? Or will Andrade become famous for beating Jay White?

Andrade being alone was doomed from the start with Juice and the Gunns backing White up! And then they all taunt Andrade while he’s down! Andrade takes his first AEW loss, but will he back for venganza? (Vengeance in Espanol.)


Ortiz speaks.

“All In, Wembley Stadium. Did to me what you’ve been doing to me the last 14 years of my life. You used me, then you walked away. Sure did have a lot to say on social media. Sure did have a lot to say on TV. And then when I confronted you… Called you over and looked you in your eyes, you walked away. Tough keyboard warrior. You did what you always do: You ran from your problems. Guess what? You’re not gonna be able to run much longer.” Will there be a clash of the proud ‘n’ powerful on the horizon?


Shane Taylor Promotions speaks.

Shane Taylor himself says that on paper, Shane Taylor VS Keith Lee may not seem like much of a rivalry. But Keith knows better, doesn’t he? They came into ROH at the same time, established “The Pretty Boy Killers” and DOMINATED the tag division. Lee Moriarty says to tell ’em! Shane says that from ANS to War Machine to The Briscoes, they took ’em all out! But then Keith went to go work for “the other billionaire,” while Shane stayed and became an ROH legend! The world got to see Keith be limitless, but now it is Shane’s time on the biggest stage! And the only thing standing in the way IS Keith.

Shane says if it is to feed his family, then he will put Keith in the GROUND! Before Shane takes everything Keith has, Keith must step in the ring with The Best Damn Technical Wrestler, Lee Moriarty. Will #TAIGASTYLE bring Keith down to size? Or will Moriarty #BaskInHisGlory?

The open challenge of opportunities continues as Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler give JD Drake & Anthony Henry their shot. But with WrestleDream and a rematch with Aussie Open on the horizon, will the Top Guys get caught off guard? Or will FTR be bringing the gold to Seattle?

Dax survives being squashed and the fans lose their minds just from seeing it! But wait, Cash has Henry, GORY BOMB to the apron!! Dax runs up on JD but JD ROCKS him!

JD endures, fans rally, but JD taps! FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by submission (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

Aussie Open says okay, then it’s on! WrestleDream will mark the anniversary of the instant classic back at Royal Quest! Mark Davis gets a mic to say, “AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE!” The fans reply “OI OI OI!” Davis says congrats, and keep those belts bright. Because FTR is in the fight of their lives! Fletcher knows Aussie Open says it a lot, but FTR once said themselves that Aussie Open is the best tag team in the world today! And they’ve heard the complaints, “What happened to the Aussie Open that took FTR to the limit in a five star classic?” Well, they admit they haven’t lived up tot he hype, but that is why they challenged FTR to this match!

Aussie Open needs to prove to to the people, they need to prove it to FTR, and they need to prove it to themselves that they ARE everything they say they are! Dax has a mic to say yeah, okay. Aussie Open were sacrificial lambs to Max and his best friend. They were sacrificial lambs to Chris Jericho and his best friend. But what Dax wants from them, what he is begging them on his hands and knees, he wants the biggest, baddest bastards in the world, because on October 1st, WrestleDream, Aussie Open faces THE BEST TAG TEAM IN HISTORY! Fans cheer that! And Dax says if Aussie Open don’t bring that, then don’t even show up. #TopGuysOut.


Backstage interview with CJ Perry.

Lexi Nair is with Miro’s hot and flexible wife, and says this is the first time we’ve seen her since she surprised everyone at All In London, which was also the first time anyone in wrestling has seen her in two years. So the question is, why now? CJ says that The Redeemer, who she loves so much, has lost his way. She wanted to help him be champion again. But unfortunately, he’s rather preoccupied with the past and… temptations. But then in steps Miro! He says his only temptation is her. And her temptation is this: the lights, the cameras, the fame. It changes you. CJ says she loves the hustle, the puzzle, the chase, and helping those she loves! It makes her come alive!

Miro says his righteous path was to save “them.” And if CJ stays, that means he’d have to… To what? Save her? What were their wedding vows again? Well, they each have to do what they each have to do. They will each walk their own paths. But if there is any love in Miro’s heart for CJ, then please, do not lay a hand on any of her future clients she’s going to manage here. Okay? Can he promise that? Miro leaves without giving an answer. Will pro-wrestling come between husband and wife?

Starks stomps away on Bryan, stands him up, and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Starks throws body shots, UPPERCUTS, then goes up the corner to rain down fists! Fans count to five but Bryan DUMPS Starks out! Bryan builds speed to DIVE! Down goes Starks and fans fire up! Bryan finally gets his jacket off to drag Starks up and CROTCH Starks on railing! Bryan runs to CLOBBER Starks!

Winner: Bryan Danielson

Starks wanted revenge, but he only got another vicious fight and crushing defeat. Big Bill and Wheeler Yuta come out to check on their respective allies. Bill helps Starks stand, as does Yuta with Bryan. Yuta and Bill get at each other, but Starks has them all stand down. Is this Starks’ way of showing Bryan respect for the absolute war they just went through? And where does Starks go from here?

My Thoughts:

A great Collision here, and some more added to WrestleDream just as I was hoping. Julia had a good match with Kiera, she mists Skye, but instead of calling out Willow for a PPV match, she wants Kris and the TBS Championship. That will be a good match for WrestleDream but I feel like Kris wins that. Really good tag title match from FTR VS Workhorsemen but of course FTR wins so that their match with Aussie Open is now a title match. No idea who wins that but we all know it will be a match of the year contender. And I think something rather interesting is that Fatal 4 Way contenders tag match, and that detail about a title match “at any time.” Is a team going to win and then Money in the Bank those AEW tag titles away from whoever wins? Because that’d be awesome, actually.

Speaking of which, really fun tag match of Hook & RVD beating Menard & Parker. Of course Hook & RVD win, which helps give Hook & Cassidy momentum going into that WrestleDream Fatal 4. RVD is probably in AEW to be part of the fun, have more of these really good matches, but I can’t really say he is actually after another title reign of some kind. Then big stuff from Eddie Kingston, putting up TWO championships up in his match with Shibata. That’s one huge first defense for the ROH World Championship, but I would think Eddie retains. As awesome as it’d be to see one man with three singles titles, there’s no good story of Eddie losing the belts he worked so hard to have so soon.

Don Callis has a good promo in response to the Six Man Tag challenge, but of course Will Ospreay is the third man, even though I would’ve loved for them to bring in someone really good that really needs something to do. But whatever, Ospreay brings star power, and there is story here already where Ospreay’s faced all three men, Omega, Ibushi & Jericho. It’ll also be an awesome match with Ospreay in it, but I would think Jericho & The Golden Lovers win. It’d also be great if Daniel Garcia helped tip the scales in Jericho’s favor, completing the double turn of Garcia and Guevara and perhaps giving us Garcia VS Guevara.

Really good TNT Championship Triple Threat that was really a handicap match. While I was thinking Christian was going to force Luchasaurus to give him the win, Christian instead opportunistically takes the win from Darby in where he has to pin Luchasaurus. And yet we’re getting a Best 2 Out of 3 Falls match at WrestleDream. That will make WrestleDream even longer, but maybe that is where it all comes to a head with Nick Wayne being in this story. Great match from White VS Andrade, but of course Bullet Club Gold helps White win that one. I know there hasn’t been a lot of interaction between Andrade and La Faccion Ingobernable since Andrade turned Face, but this would be the time for LFI to show their new aggression while also helping Andrade against BCG.

And of course, a great Last Man Standing match in the main event. Oh, yeah, that was a Last Man Standing match they dressed up as Texas Death even though it wasn’t like we weren’t going to notice. Literally earlier this year, AEW Revolution, Hangman VS Moxley, THEIR Texas Death Match was Knockout, Standing Count or Submission/Verbal Forfeit. But I guess since they already played their hand of Starks taking a loss by fainting, meaning Starks would never tap out or say “I Quit,” they could only go with the KO/ten count finish. Still a great match, but I’m just a stickler for labeling things what they are, and this as Last Man Standing, not Texas Death. But I did like Starks having Bill stand down. Makes me think that Starks could be a future ally to the BCC.

My Score: 8.9/10

Darby Allin & Sting w/ Nick Wayne VS Christian Cage & Luchasaurus!

The Relentless Icons won at All In London, but Captain Charisma’s complaint is that his Right Hand of Destruction was not his tag partner.

A great win for the TBS Champion, the FTW Champion and Freshly Squeezed! Will this momentum carry them all through into WrestleDream?


It’s an all new QTV.

Harley Cameron asks if they wanna see her impersonation of a hot dog. Uh, sure. Harley just goes rigid. Huh. What does Joe Blow think? Uh- Johnny TV springs on the scene and says they must’ve had a great time in Montreal. Wait, Solo wasn’t invited to that. Oh, uh, that sucks. But let’s rrrroll the footage! Harley says this is awkward, but that only works when she asks for it. “RRRRRRROLL~ the footage, gov’nah!” Footage rolls of QT Marshall defending his title in Lutte Academie, the French Canadian wrestling indie. QT pounded that guy’s ass like a turkey! Oh, hey, nice sunglasses, Solo! Remember the handshake? Hecc yeah!

They do the shake, blast off, and then QT texts! He needs a tag partner for next week! Someone with fresh breath, long hair, and has known for a long time. Someone he can trust not matter what. Solo says that’s him! It has to be! No, bro, that’s Johnny! Gotta go, see you next week. Awkward… But will the combined powers of QT & Johnny be unstoppable?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

And he says that after Dynamite, this guy has a lot to answer for. Though, we already knew he was a snake in the grass. Ladies and gentlemen… Don Callis. Fans boo as the patriarch of the Don Callis Family walks out with “The Alpha,” Konosuke Takeshita and goes to the ring. Schiavone has to admit, Callis is many times a step ahead, and he is eating up how the fans all around the world just HATE him! Schiavone says Callis deserves all of it. Callis takes the mic and fans boo as he says just wants to say… “A few weeks ago, the wrestling world was abuzz! The wrestsling world was abuzz at my so-called pursuit of Chris Jericho.

“I didn’t end up with Jericho, but I ended up with the man I really wanted, the newest member of the Don Callis Family… SAMMY! GUEVARAAA~!” The fallen Spanish God makes his way out now, dressed to impress. Fans boo more as Sammy joins his “family” in the ring. Sammy soaks up all the heat, but Schiavone asks, “You actually call this man family?” Sammy says he can’t hear Schiavone, but that might be from all the booing. Sammy tells Don, “Believe it or not, I hated you. I hated you for a long time.

“I hated you almost as much as they hated you. And it’s because this whole time, I thought you were trying to rip apart my family. But really, you were just trying to show me I never really had one. Until now!” They hug and fans boo more. Sammy says why did he betray Jericho on Wednesday? The reason is because for the past four years, he has been holding Sammy back! Jericho has taken Sammy for granted, just like all the fans have! Fans boo more but Sammy says yeah, yeah, yeah. Last year, it was “F YOU SAMMY!” Earlier this year, it was “LET’S GO, SAMMY!” Well Sammy is done with such fickleness! He doesn’t need the fans!

Sammy is done trying to earn the fans’ love. He has a hot, hot wife, a beautiful baby girl and a fat bank account! Fans boo Sammy but Sammy says Jericho is DEAD to him, and never wants to see him again! But wait! Judas plays and fans fire up! Jericho is here, and he rushes the DCF! Jericho DECKS Konosuke, ROCKS Sammy, fires off on Konosuke again to TOSS him out, then he ROCKS Sammy! Sammy scurries away but Callis CLUBS Jericho! Jericho scowls at Callis and fans say Callis F’d up now! But Konosuke returns to SMACK Jericho with a chair! And again! And again! And again!!

Fans boo but then Sammy has Konosuke stop. Because Sammy takes the chair to SMACK Jericho now! And again! And again!! Sammy unleashes that resentment and rage! Konosuke drags Jericho up, Sammy helps, and Callis tells Jericho this is what he gets! Callis throws punches, but hurts his own hand! So he brings out the SCREWDRIVER!! Fans freak out, but here comes KENNY OMEGA!! The Cleaner is back, with a metal pipe!! Omega runs the DCF off and fans are thunderous! Jericho staggers up to his feet and he bumps into Kenny. Both men are on guard, but upon seeing who it is, Jericho cools off.

Omega drops the pipe, and he nods before leaving. Will Omega and Jericho see that the enemy of their enemy is truly a friend in the fight against the treacherous, disgusting and conniving Don Callis?


Rampage returns as Alex Marvez finds Kenny Omega.

Marvez says Omega and Jericho, in the same ring together, working together against Don Callis! Kenny stomps Marvez there. Do they really think Kenny did any of that for Jericho? That he cares about Jericho? This is bigger than Jericho! This is about Kenny taking care of Callis. But then Jericho walks over. Jericho tells Kenny that he says this once: he appreciates Kenny making that save, but he also knows the reason it happened. Just as Kenny was saying, this is not about them becoming friends. This entire company was based on the Omega VS Jericho rivalry. But now, something that Callis never thought would happen: Jericho and Omega are UNITED in taking Callis out!

The match Callis put together in Tokyo, it is now a nightmare come to life. And as far as Sammy goes, he is the real Judas. But so Jericho suggests they team up for real and take out the Don Callis Family, at WrestleDream! Omega tells Callis that he stabbed Omega in the back, betrayed his best friend in Jericho, and threatened someone Kenny loves in Kota Ibushi. That scar on Callis’ head that he blames on Omega, after they’re done with him, Callis will look like Freddy Krueger. WrestleDream, October 1st, will become a Wrestle Nightmare. DCF VS Jericho, Omega and Ibushi! Who you got?! They’ll be waiting.


ROH World Tag Team Championship #1 Contenders Fatal 4 Way match: The Hardy Boyz VS The Righteous VS Best Friends VS The Kingdom!

All teams with history in ROH, all teams with history with the tag titles, but only one team gets to go on to their WrestleDream against MJF & Adam Cole. Will Matt & Jeff DELETE the competition? Will Dutch & Vincent bring about an Autumn Sunset? Will Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta get a shot at finally becoming champions? Or will Mike Bennett & Matt Taven go after the men that (emotionally) hurt Roderick Strong?

In this Fatal 4 Way, only two teams are legal at a time, so the ref calls for them to sort things out. But then tensions build between old rivals in Best Friends and The Kingdom, as well as new rivals in The Hardys and The Righteous. The ref can sense where this is going, and he rings the bell right as the brawl begins! Taven has Trent, Mike has Chuck, Dutch has Matt (Hardy) and Vinnie has Jeff! Then The Kingdom and Righteous put Best Friends and Hardys up top, fire off more hands with them, but then Best Friends and Hardys knock The Righteous and Kingdom down! Four corner V1! QUADRUPLE AX HANDLES!

The Hardys give thumbs up to Best Friends, and then Best Friends offer it. But the group hug is denied! Fans boo as The Hardys are sent outside, followed by Best Friends. Mike RAMS Chuck into railing, Dutch builds speed, but the KICK OF THE KING takes him down! Taven builds speed to FLY! He takes down The Righteous and Hardys! Trent gets in the ring and fans fire up! Trent builds speed, but Chuck stops him! They HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! The Best Friends then BLAST The Kingdom, and they DOUBLE TOPE to take everyone out! Fans are thunderous as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Best Friends put Taven in, Matt Hardy is after him, and he ROCKS Taven with a forearm. And another! Taven drops to a knee, Hardy bumps him off buckles! “DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!” The ref counts, Hardy finishes up, and fans rally. Hardy drags Taven up, brings him around, tag to Jeff. The Hardys double whip, then double ELBOW, and then FIST DROP SENTON COMBO! Cover, TWO! Jeff drags Taven up, snapmares, and basement dropkicks! But then Chuck tags in off Jeff! Tag to Trent and Best Friends get Taven up. Forearm and SOLE FOOD HALF ‘N’ HALF! Mike shouts at Trent but Trent keeps his focus on Taven.

Trent runs in at the corner to BACK ELBOW! Then Trent keeps moving, but Taven ducks and sends Trent out! Mike YANKS Trent down to BOSTON BAYONET! Mike mocks Jeff’s dance moves, but then backs off as the Hardys step to him. Taven then CLOBBERS Trent! Taven puts Trent in the ring, stalks him, and keeps him from Chuck. Trent anchors a leg, tags Mike, and Mike CLAWS Trent’s eyes! The ref reprimands but Mike again mocks Jeff. Mike drags Trent up, bumps him off buckles, and CHOPS him down! Mike then BOOTS Trent, stands him back up, and snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Trent hangs tough but Mike tags Taven.

The Kingdom gets Trent up, feed to a BOOT, then a FOREARM, then Taven goes up. Trent ducks and the MISSILE DROPKICK hits Mike! Taven panics, apologizes, and Rampage returns to single picture. The Kingdom keeps Trent from Chuck! Then they DECK Chuck! Trent BOOTS Mike, dodges Taven and TORNADO DDTS! Fans fire up while Trent and Taven are down. Vinnie reaches out to tag off his old enemy, and Hardy tags off Trent. Hardy rallies on Vinnie, then hits a SIDE EFFECT! Cover, ONE!! Tag to Jeff, the Hardys whip Vinnie to BOOT, JAWBREAKER, and then NECKBREAKER! Jeff SPLASHES down, covers, TWO!

Jeff wrenches to CLUB Vinnie’s arm. Tag to Matt, they mug Vinnie, and then double whip. Dutch runs in but is sent into Vinnie! Matt sets up, Jeff runs, POETRY IN MOTION! Matt tags Jeff back in, and Jeff hits an atomic drop, then the leg splitting leg drop! Basement dropkick to add on! And an elbow drop! Cover, Dutch breaks it! Jeff kicks Dutch but no Twist yet! BOSS MAN SLAM! Taven ENZIGURIS Dutch! Vinnie ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl and RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Mike whips Vinnie but Vinnie BOOTS! Vinnie ROCKS Mike, feeds him to a BOSS MAN SLAM! Matt Hardy runs in but into a BOSS MAN SLAM!!

Chuck sneaks a tag off Jeff Hardy, Trent BUSAIKU KNEES Vinnie! Trent runs but Dutch catches him! Trent slips free of the Boss Man Slam to feed Dutch to a SEXY CHUCKY KNEE! Then a GERMAN SUPLEX! Taven runs in to BOOT Trent! “That’s for Adam Cole, ya dummy!” But Taven turns around into a SUPERKICK from Chuck! Chuck drags Taven up, wrenches, but Mike stops Sole Food! Taven distracts the ref, Mike PUNCHES CHUCK IN THE WIENER!! Mike reels Chuck in, Taven goes up, HAIL MARY!! Cover, TRENT BREAKS IT! Fans fire up as Jeff tags in off Taven! Taven is furious but Jeff gives Chuck a TWIST OF FATE!

Jeff throws his shirt off! Jeff goes up a corner, but Vinnie tags in off Jeff! SWANTON BOMB on Chuck, but Dutch drags Jeff out! Vinnie SWANTON BOMBS!! Cover, The Righteous win!!

Winners: The Righteous, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contenders to the ROH World Tag Team Championships)

Fans don’t like it, but Vinnie snipes this one, and now he and Dutch will face MJF & Cole in Seattle! Will The Righteous expose the false friendship for what it is? Or will the brochachos continue to prove they are Better Than You Baybay?

Wait, Taven RAMS Trent into railing! He is furious that he and Mike lost! Mike CHOKES Chuck with a chair! Taven SMACKS Trent with a chair! They are violating their PSAs about neck health by endangering the neck health of Best Friends! Mike SMACKS Chuck off a chair! Fans boo while The Kingdom storms off, what will it take for the OGK to finally get back to the ROH World Tag titles?


Mike Santana speaks.

“Now it’s time for you to understand what this all truly means to me. Going away for this injury was the easy part. Handling what goes on in here (the heart) and up here (the mind) was the hard part. That was the true test. I spent 30 DAYS staring out a treatment center window, wondering just where my life went. And I realized I’ve survived way too damn much to just piss it all away. And here I am, for the world to see. And I’m hungrier than ever. Everybody is food. You get in between me and my money, I will put you down. You get in between me and feeding my daughter, I put you down.

“And realize this: Whether it’s here, whether it’s anywhere, I’m gonna get mine. If you don’t like it, you fight me or fire me! But you have two options: Either get down, or lay down.” There is a fire raging inside Mike Santana, will he use it to blaze a trail to the top of the mountain?


AEW World Trios Championships: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS The Dark Order!

While everyone loves the diss tracks and the scissor fingers and the bright colors, it would seem Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds & John Silver would have us believe Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass are the bad guys in all this. But if they’re the heroes of this story, does that mean the Dark Order will prevail? Or will they fail to end the Scissoring World Tour?

But speaking of a diss track…! “Acclaimed on the mic, and it sounds so pretty. Damn it feels good to be in New York City! Oh my God, the Dark Order! The number one cure for a sleep disorder! The group is smaller than I remember. Now we gotta fight against the three worst members! And we beat you down proper. Have all y’all laid up like Aaron Rodgers.” Ouch… But Bowens takes the mic to shout, “NEW YOOORK CITAAAAY~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! But will those scissors cut down The Dark Order before they ever rebuild?

The trios sort out and Caster starts against Reynolds. The fans rally up and sing “OH~ Scissor Me Daddy~!” Caster and Reynolds circle, tie up, and go around. Reynolds waistlocks, throws Caster down, then pulls on an ear to get a headlock. Caster fights up, throws body shots, and then headlocks back. Reynolds powers up and out, but Caster runs him over! Caster says “SUCK IT!” then runs, but Reynolds hurdles. Caster BACKHANDS Reynolds! And says “SUCK IT!” again! Reynolds runs in, but into an arm-drag! Caster keeps on the armlock but Reynolds fights up. Reynolds puts Caster in the corner and Silver tags in.

Uno pulls Caster’s hair to keep him in the corner, the reprimands, but Silver & Reynolds mug Caster! The ref counts, Silver lets off to say “I’m freakin’ jacked, baby!” But Caster fights back and RAMS Silver into the corner! Tag to Bowens and he kicks Silver. Silver shoves Bowens but Bowens fires off haymaker after haymaker after haymaker! Self-scissor and Bowens DECKS Silver! “EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed!” Tag to Billy, he and Bowens double whip to double ELBOW! They wind up, and scissor before the ELBOW DROP! Billy then scoops to SLAM Silver! Tag to Caster, they hold Silver open as Bowens goes up!

SCISSOR ME- NO, Reynolds HOTSHOTS Bowens down! Uno DECKS Billy, BOOTS Caster, and then Reynolds RAMS Bowens into railing! Uno drags Billy out to POST him!

Caster ends up in the Dark Order corner and Uno tags in. Uno stomps a mudhole into Caster, but lets off as the ref counts. Uno gets in the ref’s face, and that allows Silver to CHOKE Caster! Fans boo but Uno drags Caster up. Fans rally but Reynolds tags in, the Dark Order mugs Caster. Silver says Dark Order freakin’ rules!

Reynolds CLUBS Caster, stands on his face, and says the Dark Order claw is a real hand sign! Reynolds stomps Caster, drags him up, and then bumps him off buckles. Tag to Uno, and Uno CHOPS Caster!

Skye Blue VS Julia Hart w/ Brody King!

Chicago Skye got a great Six Woman Tag win last night in ROH, but now she is back to fighting for herself. Will she be able to shine in the darkness? Or will the House always win?

Winners: The Hung Bucks, by pinfall (NEW ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions)

The Elite wins big, but Hangman goes right back to glaring at Swerve! Pyro goes off to celebrate The Hung Bucks becoming TWO-TIME Six Man Tag Team Champions, having ended one of the most dominant trios in either AEW or ROH! But this doesn’t change what is coming. Hangman and Swerve will put pen to paper on Wednesday to make their WrestleDream match official. Will Swerve’s House have something waiting for the Cowboy in Colorado?

My Thoughts:

A great two hours for Rampage here, though I am not going to advocate for this being a regular thing. Great opening tag from Darby & Sting VS Christian & Luchasaurus, and I like that Nick Wayne costs Christian this match. Darby taking on Christian and Luchasaurus in that TNT Championship Triple Threat which will really is a handicap match could also be a way to hand the feud off to where Christian has matches with Nick Wayne over this “Your dad is dead, I will be a better dad” gimmick. Now I don’t know if that means Darby wins the title or not, but it feels more likely he loses since Christian and Luchasaurus are going to work together.

Great Mixed Six but of course Kris & OrangeHook win. This was the first outing of Cassidy & Hook as a team, so they weren’t going to lose, and certainly not to the former Jericho Appreciation Society. And while Hook is FTW Champion, this does feel like they’ll eventually make it to some tag title match so that Cassidy can add to his resume. Great Fatal 4 Tag, but The Righteous winning was a big surprise to me. I thought WrestleDream would be when they pull the trigger on The Kingdom VS MJF & Cole and that pushes things towards a brochacho break-up. Seems not, they might be saving that for Full Gear in LA. And Kingdom might bide their time with a feud with Best Friends.

Good promo from Callis and Sammy, and really good stuff with Jericho going after them all, and then Kenny making the save. I was a little confused as to where Kota Ibushi was supposed to come into this until Jericho made the challenge of a Six Man Tag a la All In London. But at the same time, it prompts the Don Callis Family to grow, as it should, and maybe Callis keeps it a surprise until WrestleDream. Really good promo from Mike Santana before he of course beat Bronson, and I really like that Ortiz appeared. People have been wondering how much shoot and how much work we’re seeing in their social media exchanges, but I would think this hints at it being more a worked shoot, playing off the tension that has perhaps already been resolved.

Really good AEW Trios title match, with Dark Order looking good in their new gear, white with purple highlights. But I figured The Acclaimed would retain, they’re not losing on TV. Good match from Skye VS Julia, and Julia winning was only a slight surprise given all the momentum Skye’s been building. But Willow making the save was good stuff, and I really do think we need someone to be feuding with Willow over her winning the Women’s Owen Hart Cup. Should’ve been doing that the whole time, but whether it’s AEW or ROH, Tony Khan’s got the book and we’ve all talked about those issues.

And a great main event for the ROH World Six Man titles, but with how fast and furious the Hung Bucks were going at the start of the match, I really thought they were losing. Swerve showed up, he could’ve easily screwed Hung Bucks over, but he was putting it on Hangman to mess things up and that actually cost The Mogul Embassy. I was talking this whole time about how that kinda buries ROH, and unless The Hung Bucks show up on like next week’s ROH episode, I still hold to that. Adam Cole & MJF haven’t been on ROH TV even though they’re the tag champs, so it just makes ROH seem like an afterthought despite them constantly using the various ROH champions on AEW programming. And if The Hung Bucks beat the near unbeatable Embassy, who is even going to beat the Bucks without cheating so, so hard?

My Score: 8.9/10
