MJF VS Wardlow!

Try as he might, Maxwell Jacob Friedman could not keep the War Dog down under his thumb. And he couldn’t keep this match from happening, either! But can he find a way to keep Wardlow under contract and absolutely ruin the rest of his life? Or will Wardlow prove MJF isn’t better than anyone else so that the whole world knows it?

Wardlow is escorted from the holding cell and to the ring. Fans chant for “WARD~LOW,” and they tell MJF he F’d up big time! Fans erupt as soon as Wardlow walks out on stage and down the ramp. The cuffs are undone, the chanting echoes throughout the arena, and MJF bails out as soon as Wardlow steps in the ring. MJF wants Wardlow backed off so the ref has Wardlow step away. Fans want Wardlow to “F HIM UP!” in reference to MJF. MJF gets annoyed, but he gets in the ring. The bell rings, and MJF bails right back out. Fans boo but MJF just soaks up the heat. Wardlow stays cool as MJF paces around with the ring count.

MJF tells Wardlow to back off, and he does. Fans taunt MJF with, “HE SHOWED UP!” in reference to MJF apparently not doing his meet ‘n’ greets. Wardlow argues with the ref and MJF rushes in! MJF cheap shots Wardlow, but he doesn’t budge! Wardlow then reels MJF in! MJF scrambles away and fans boo. MJF tells Vegas to shut up, but then he says this is happening on his time. Wardlow goes out after MJF but MJF gets back in the ring to soak up the heat. MJF then dodges Wardlow again, except Wardlow drags him up to the apron! MJF shoulders in, slingshot sunsets, but he can’t bring Wardlow down!

Wardlow drags MJF up to reel him in! Bot MJF BITES Wardlow on the top of his head! MJF throws a forearm, then another, but Wardlow just flexes on him. So MJF pokes Wardlow in the eye! The ref reprimands but MJF doesn’t care. MJF headlocks, only for Wardlow to power up. MJF ducks and dodges, rolls under the boot, and waistlocks. Fans chant, “MJF, F U!” but Wardlow bucks the O’Conner. Things speed up, MJF drops then jumps, but Wardlow catches him! MJF hurries to RANA out of the bomb! Cover, TWO! MJF suddenly clutches his leg! Wardlow doesn’t trust that MJF’s leg is actually hurting, and neither do the fans.

The ref still has to be sure, and we all catch MJF digging the Dynamite Diamond Ring out of his trunks! MJF looks up and realizes he’s been caught. The ref takes the ring away and pats MJF on the shoulder! MJF realizes he’s dead and he begs for mercy! MJF says no one wants to see him get hurt, but fans chant, “YES WE DO!” MJF says he’ll double Wardlow’s pay! No, TRIPLE! Wait, wait, QUADRUPLE! Hmm… Wardlow shakes on it, but that’s to trick MJF. Wardlow won’t let MJF go, and he smiles. Wardlow kicks low, reels MJF in, and fans are thunderous! POWERBOMB!! Fans are loving this but we all want that “ONE MORE TIME!”

Wardlow conducts the crowd and obliges, he gets MJF up again! POWERBOMB!! But the symphony has only begun and Wardlow is feeling it! He gets MJF back up again, for a POWERBOMB!! That’s three, but we still need the quartet! Wardlow gets MJF up, for the POWERBOMB! Roll right back up, a FIFTH POWERBOMB!! Cover, Wardlow lets off?! Everyone is enjoying the karma being dealt out to MJF! Wardlow says here’s one more! Fans chant, “YES! YES! YES!” and POWERBOMB NUMBER SIX!! Well, is half a dozen enough? Fans are chanting “TEN! TEN! TEN!” Wardlow gets MJF up again and LUCKY NUMBER SEVEN here in Vegas!

Wardlow takes in a deep breath, this is cathartic! And y’know what? He agrees, let’s go to 10! Wardlow brings MJF up, POWERBOMB NUMBER EIGHT! NUMBER NINE!! The straps come down for NUMBER TEN!!! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall (freed from his contract with MJF)

FREEDOM! “WARD~LOW” has literally thrown MJF away and is now free to sign directly with AEW! As for MJF, medics get a neck brace, backboard and stretcher to get him out of here. Fans chant, “You Deserve It!” at MJF, has Wardlow not only rid himself but all of AEW of the Scourge of the Earth?

Tony Schiavone interviews Wardlow on the stage, and he reports that Tony Khan has made Wardlow ALL ELITE! Wardlow loves seeing the graphic, as do the fans! And they chant again, “You Deserve It!” in a positive light. Now that we have #AllEliteWardlow, will we also see Wardlow become a champion?

Winners: The Jericho Appreciation Society, by submission

This was not just anarchy, this was violence and malice! And somehow, someway, the SPORTS ENTERTAINERS won! But can they even call themselves that with how far they pushed themselves to win this fight? Or is that just the magic of The Wizard and his Jericho Appreciation Society?

 

Andrade El Idolo speaks.

El Idolo says he is not here in AEW to lose. He “acquired” the AFO from Matt Hardy, but this group is not working! They’re all losers! Jose, do you have the contract? Yes, the new contract for Andrade’s new business partner. No, his new friend. This man is the top wrestler in the world! One of the best! You know him, right? Y-Yes, of course! There’s a knock at the door, and Andrade has Jose answer it. IT’S TORO BLANCO, RUSH!! Andrade welcomes his long time friend, and they Los Ingobernables fist bump! Is AEW now property of the ungovernables?!

 

Backstage interview with The Men of the Year and Dan Lambert.

Lexi Nair asks them how it feels to finally put their rivalry with Sammy to bed? Uh, how does Dan feel? Golden! How does Scorpio feel? Oh so good. And for Ethan, a man who’s been pissed off every few weeks these last few months, he’s feeling great. Hell, it felt real good to get his hands on Sammy! But to be honest, it feels even better to be finished and done with those pieces of trash and finally finally finally move on to bigger and better. They’ve been going up and down the road, and now the book is finally closed. Kaz and Sammy will NEVER challenge for Scorpio’s TNT Championship. So who is next? Who thinks they have what it takes to be the Face of TNT?

In walks DANTE MARTIN! Angel Dorado tells Scorpio that just because Sammy can’t, doesn’t mean Dante can’t. Okay, okay. Scorpio has seen Dante wrestle, and he’s a great talent with a hell of a future. But he is not ready for the fire. If Dante wants it, come to SoCal and you’ll get your shot. But when you’re down on your back, looking up at the Hollywood sign, just remember that you asked for it. S C U in SoCal!

My Thoughts:

What a night for AEW right here. Was this perhaps the biggest, longest Double or Nothing yet? It sure felt like there was more to it than before. And I can’t really complain about too much, a lot of this was great stuff. Well, okay, there are things I can bring up. There seemed to be technical and production aspects that weren’t the best, but just minor annoyances. And that I just knew Cole & Britt would both win the tournaments. And in the case of the Anarchy in the Arena match, that was exactly the chaos I expected where we couldn’t really appreciate everything going on, but we got to see everything that mattered in the end. I see now that they saved the dysfunction between Bryan and Kingston for this very moment, and that is why JAS won.

Jade Cargill is great in the ring and on the mic, but boy she sure ends up protected. But at least it’s as a Heel, Heels would want ways to ensure their victory. Bivens/Hathaway apparently swooping in to take Jade away from Sterling is a wild move, but Bivens is such a great talker, he’ll fit right in with The Baddies. The dysfunction between SamTay and Kaz was played up about as I expected, but I was surprised Kaz and Sammy lost. But I suppose it’s the best way for everyone to move on from this. Maybe Kaz and Sammy feud as they’ll blame each other for the loss. And I love that Dante Martin wants next. He’ll give Scorpio one hell of a match, but I would think Scorpion wins.

The main event was great stuff but in trying to figure out the crowd reaction, even commentary thought fans didn’t like the “preening” and needing to play things up both guys were doing. AEW being different from WWE, you go in expecting almost nonstop action and the character stuff is in the selling and facial reactions, not having to look to fans for the energy. A Heel like MJF can taunt a crowd to get them to boo more, but when Hangman was ready to slingshot, he should’ve just stayed focused on Punk. And while Hangman going Heel here would’ve been pretty wild, I do like how they kept him Face and now he’s a former champion.

I had a feeling his next chapter would be about finding his way back, and hopefully they can iron out the wrinkles with how this first reign went. And as for Punk, this win opens up a floodgate of matches he could have for the rest of this year and maybe beyond. And if AEW can manage it, we might see Punk VS Omega before we see Omega VS Hangman and/or Punk VS Hangman II.

My Score: 9.5/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO! NO!” Tommy is conflicted. But he takes the handshake?! Callis smiles and asks for an official answer. Tommy looks him in the eyes, and says, “Kiss my ass!” Callis is furious! He SLAPS Tommy! Takeshita says hold on, they can still make this work. But then Tommy grabs Callis!

Takeshita CLUBS Tommy down, stomps him, and even Callis gets his shots in. He calls for back-up, and here comes Kyle Fletcher! The Aussie Arrow steps in to get his shots in! They stand Tommy up so Callis can swing on Tommy! WAIT! FTR is here!? Calgary fires up as Cash & Dax storm out here! The Top Guys throw hands with Fletcher & Takeshita! The fans fire up for FTR as Dax CHOPS Takeshita down! Cash CLUBS away on Kyle, Kyle flops out of the ring, and Callis has his family regroup and retreat! Dax offers a hand, and Tommy takes it. The fans cheer as FTR and Tommy stand tall together. Will they make the Callis Family learn a thing about respect?

 

Six Man Tag: The Bang Bang Gang VS London Lightning, Shaun Moore & Michael Allen Richard Clark!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns are here, and these #CollisionCowboys are looking to keep up their momentum as AEW heads for Wembley. Will the Unified World Trios Champions be more than ready to go All In?

The trios sort out and the fans rally for “JUICE! JUICE! JUICE!” as he starts against Moore. Juice gives Moore a free shot, so Moore headlocks him. Juice powers up and out, tags Colten, and then Colten tags Austin. Bang Bang Gang hit a body shot, KNEE LIFT, and LARIAT! Juice adds a SENTON, then Colten SPINNING SPLASHES!

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?

 

AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”

 

Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?

Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off.

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both! The fans fire up and Cassidy puts Bennett in. Cassidy goes up top, Bennett gets under the jump. Bennett headlocks, Cassidy powers up and out, but Bennett runs him over. Cassidy UP KICKS, Bennett comes back to headlock. Cassidy powers out, ducks down then hurdles.

Cassidy arm-drags Bennett but Bennett arm-drags back! Cassidy arm-drags again, then avoids Bennett’s arm-drag! The fans cheer but Taven gets in. Taven waistlocks, Cassidy switches and shoves Taven into Bennett. Cassidy then back drops Taven, and has hands up! Bennett runs up but Cassidy blocks the kick. Cassidy spins Bennett, headlocks, but Bennett powers up and out. Cassidy tags Kyle, dodges Bennett, then puts hands in pockets before bailing. Bennett runs around and Kyle KICKS! And KICKS! And whips, to then kitchen sink knee! Bennett sputters, Taven runs in, but Kyle blocks the kick!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

The Savior of the Backbreaker is set for an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match tomorrow night on Collision against Dalton Castle. But in an occasion of turnabout is fair play, The Conglomeration is watching him from commentary! Will the presence of Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy & Mark Briscoe make Roddy better or worse than usual?

The bell rings and Kyle says that while he loves and appreciates Roddy, Taven & Bennett, they’re being more like the Undisputed Cling-dom! Meanwhile, big Ben Bishop stalks some smack on Roddy, and then pretends he can’t see him. Roddy says okay, be that way. They tie up, Cassidy points out just how tall Ben is, and big Ben shoves Roddy down! The fans fire up, Roddy comes right back, but Ben TOSSES him away! Roddy bails out, the fans fire up for Ben, and The Kingdom coaches Roddy up. Roddy runs in, dodges Ben, and kicks at the legs! Ben drops to size so Roddy and CHOP! CHOP! And CHOP!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

The Conglomeration is in agreement, that was impressive work by Roddy, because Roddy is indeed that good. But Cassidy says it is time to go stare down with them. The Conglomeration stand on stage to stare down The Kingdom, but Roddy needs to focus on tomorrow night. Will Roddy punch his golden ticket to an ROH World Championship match? Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

The Virtuosa is served a glass of wine, and says we’ve never been formally introduced. We’ve all seen what she can do in the ring, but does anyone know what it means to be THE Virtuosa. “Wrestling isn’t just a sport or an art form, it’s both. And more set to a quickening pace than a staccato beat of bodies slamming, bones cracking, tendons tearing! All building towards a beautiful and violent crescendo.” Deonna likes what AEW has forced her to become. “Because here, actions have consequences.” And Deonna vows to burn the empire to the ground, to remake it in her own image. This is the Age of the Virtuosa.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Renee Paquette caught up with Chris Jericho, “Big Bill” Morrissey & Bryan Keith, and asks what the hell. Yes, she’s seen The Learning Tree do “a ton of horrible other things” throughout his career, but tonight with Samoa Joe crossed a line. What was he thinking? Jericho smiles, the leather belt gifted to him by Martha Hart still wrapped around his hand. He waves to the camera and says, “Hi, guys. And Renee, I don’t know why you’re so surprised. This is exactly what I’ve been saying for a long, long time. If you’ve listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. Look at The Redwood and Bad Apple.

“But if you don’t listen to The Learning Tree, bad things happen. Shibata had a chance, now his arm is hurt. Hook had a chance, we had to burn his face off with a fireball. And Samoa Joke, for years, I’ve been telling you to listen to The Learning Tree, you didn’t, we ran you through a wall, and now you’re in the hospital.” Bill is stifling a laugh this entire time. Jericho says if Joe needs something to help with his inflamed muscles he might have, try ginger and black pepper. It’s really good for you. See, Renee? Lots of lessons to be learned. And even more will be learned on Dynamite 250, with a special edition of TV Time with Chris Jericho. Thanks, guys~…!

Jericho leaves, and Bill says one of the biggest lessons that Jericho has taught them is that the more TV Time, the better. And they want as much TV Time as possible! Because The Learning Tree, The Bad Apple and The Redwood are always maximizing their minutes. She should try it some time. Keith says if you don’t respect Chris Jericho, they will MAKE you respect Chris Jericho. Will everyone in AEW learn the hard way that Jericho isn’t kidding around?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Rachael Ellering!

We heard the Virtuosa speak her mind, but La Mera Mera looks to show, not tell. Will Rosa be more than ready to go another round with Deonna? Or will the Queen of Strong Smile make some bold moves of her own?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Rachael shoves Rosa away, and the two reset. They tie up, Rosa headlocks, but Rachael lifts her! Rachael throws Rosa away but Rosa comes back to DROPKICK! Rachael goes to a corner, Rosa runs in to LARIAT! The fans fire up and Rosa goes corner to corner to ELBOW! Rachael staggers, Rosa KICKS a leg out! Rosa then runs to LARIAT Rachael down! Cover, TWO! Rosa clamps on with a chinlock, then shifts up to an armlock.

Rachael keeps moving, and she UPPERCUTS Rosa down! The fans fire up and Rachael says “SWISH!” SENTON! Cover, TWO! The fans rally up but Rachael keeps on Rosa. Rachael CHOPS Rosa, storms up and CHOPS again. Rachael whips corner to corner hard, then runs in to LARIAT again! Rachael whips Rosa back in, runs in, but Rosa dodges! The fans rally up for Rosa as she LOCO LARIATS! Then she sits Rachael down to SWINGING METEORA!

The fans fire up and Rosa aims as Rachael goes to ropes. BANG and Rosa runs in to DROPKICK! Rachael sputters, Rosa reels her in, but Rachael bucks the driver! High stack, TWO! Rachael hurries to whip Rosa, but Rosa holds ropes. Rosa BOOTS back, runs up, and wheelbarrows, victory roll into a STOMP 182! Rosa then clamps on and has the COBRA CAMEL CLUTCH! Rachael taps, Rosa wins!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by submission

La Mera Mera shows respect to Rachael by helping her up and hugging it out. But then DEONNA runs out there! And she SHOVES Rachael into Rosa! Then she DECKS Rachael for the hell of it before going after Rosa! Rachael drags Deonna off of Rosa, so Deonna BOOTS her down! The fans boo but Deonna BOOTS Rosa down! The Virtuosa shows her violent side, but will Rosa make her regret it?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

On top of Strong VS Castle in an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match, and on top of Konosuke Takeshita VS Tommy Billington, The Bang Bang Gang is back in action. Will Juice Robinson & The Gunns keep the momentum going? Plus, Nyla Rose is back, we see Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron 1v1, and in the main event, it will be Kyle O’Reilly & Orange Cassidy representing The Conglomeration against THE Kingdom, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett. Could we see some Freshly Squeezed #1 contenders to the ROH World Tag Team Championships, too? Or will Taven & Bennett secure that night off they’ve been wanting?

 

BREAKING NEWS elsewhere!

Willow Nightingale is going to be part of the big NJPW-CMLL crossover tradition, Fantastica Mania! She, Viva Van and Lluvia will compete for the now vacated CMLL Women’s World Championship! The Babe with the Power may not have gone back-to-back in the Owen Hart Cup, but will she return to AEW as a world champion all the same?

 

Six Man Tag: Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

There have been more words flying back and forth between these trios than anything, but now it is time to put up or shut up! Will The Martin Brothers & The Sight to See show everyone why they’re the Coldest Trio in the Game? Or will Lee Moriarty, Anthony Ogogo & the man himself, Big Bad Shaney T swat them all out of the sky?

The trios sort out and Darius starts against #TAIGASTYLE. Shane talks trash to the fans talking trash while Darius and Lee tie up. Lee waistlocks, full nelsons, but Darius uses his leg for leverage. Darius breaks free, standing switches, then half nelsons to slip around and headlock. Lee powers up and out, but Darius runs him over! Things keep moving, Lee hurdles and runs to then roll over the dropdown. Lee swaggers, kicks Darius, then whips him to a corner. Darius goes up and over Lee, runs back in, but Lee goes up and under! Lee runs in and blocks an elbow to then backslide Darius! ONE, and Lee goes for a leg!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

That could’ve been a win by knockout with that killer haymaker! But will Shane Taylor Promotions continue to rampage until they prove they prove they’re the elite of All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage, and while they shoved five matches onto this card again, they at least did their best to put story behind most of these. Roderick Strong was of course beating Ben Bishop, but they gave us a storyline plug by having The Conglomeration on commentary. And while Thunder Rosa was of course beating Rachael Ellering, they gave us story build with Deonna attacking them both. I feel like this will give us Deonna VS Ellering next, to stretch things out so that the true blowoff of Deonna VS Rosa isn’t until All In, probably in the All In Zero Hour. For that matter, that’s probably where Conglomeration VS Undisputed Kingdom 3v3 happens, too.

I’m a bit torn on the promo from Learning Tree Jericho and crew. The positive is that it was really good. I said for Dynamite that I like how the payoff is Jericho’s gone from condescending to sinister, and even Big Bill is getting into this crazy persona. The negative for me is that they kinda shoved this in here. I know we DO need to hear Jericho’s explanation, but if it was “after Dynamite,” then find a way to make it part of Dynamite. Or just leave it for Saturday Night Collision so that you aren’t already stuffing a one hour program full to the brim.

Great opening tag from House of Black VS Premier Athletes with Sterling & Woods of course getting involved, but great win for Malakai & Brody in that 4v2 situation. Still banking on them screwing over The Patriarchy during a Unified World Trios Championship match. The Six Man Tag was really good but not sure it was main event material compared to the Fatal 4 Way. Good stuff for the Six Man Tag, everyone got their shine, but that Fatal 4 Way was just incredible. Great win for Fenix to stay hot while all the titles have stories going into All In, but he could get a shot at like, Okada’s Continental Championship to give us a dream match moment before the PPV.

My Score: 8.8/10
