Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament Opening Round: Adam Cole VS Dax Harwood!

The Undisputed Elite looks to start on their promise that they will win this historic tournament! But will Adam Cole make sure the Owen Hart Cup is all about the Boom? Or will Dax the Ax represent for FTR, his family and for the Harts?

The bell rings and fans are fired up for Dax. Dax and Cole circle, tie up, and go around. Cole puts Dax in a corner, the ref counts and Cole lets off. Fans say, “ADAM COLE BAYBAY!” along with Cole, but Dax lets it go. Cole pie faces Dax, but still Dax lets it go. They tie up, Cole wrenches to a wristlock but Dax rolls, wrenches and slips around to headlock for a takeover! Fans cheer, Dax grinds but Cole makes it a cover, ONE! Dax holds on but Cole fights his way up and puts Dax in a corner. The ref counts, Cole lets off to say, “ADAM COLE BAY-” CHOP! Dax ROCKS Cole, CHOPS him again, then EuroUppers!

Dax falls out of the ring and a count begins. Cole goes out after Dax and brings him up to RAM into steel steps!

Dax writhes and Cole soaks up the cheers and jeers. Cole refreshes the count, he drags Dax back up, and RAMS him back into steel steps! Cole smirks as he refreshes the count again. Dax clutches ribs, Cole goes back out after him and stomps those ribs! Dax sputters as he scrambles away but Cole pursues. Cole ROCKS Dax, follows him further along, then ROCKS him again. Dax CHOPS, Cole KNEES low! Dax grits his teeth, Cole refreshes the count, and Cole POSTS Dax again! Fans boo as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cole takes a moment to catch his own breath before he puts Dax in the ring. Cole stalks Dax, brings him around and JAMS a knee into Dax’s back. Cole has the arms for a motorcycle stretch but Dax endures. Fans rally as Dax fights up and Dax mule kicks, forearms, and runs, into a cobra twist! Cole digs his elbows into those bad ribs but Dax endures. Dax fights, fans rally, and Dax pries free to switch the twist onto Cole! Cole hip tosses out fast but backs off to check his bad arm. Cole drives in elbows into Dax’s shoulder and then clamps on a chinlock. Dax endures, moves around but Cole grinds him into the mat.

Dax fights up as fans rally again. Dax gets to his feet to throw body shots! Dax headlocks, Cole powers out then CLOBBERS Dax with an elbow! Cole paces while Dax writhes, and Cole brings Dax up to bump off buckles. Cole throws forearms, talks some trash, throws more forearms, and Dax staggers. Dynamite returns to single picture as Cole hits Dax low. Cole wrenches, whips Dax corner to corner hard, and Dax bounces off buckles to hit the mat! Cole smirks as he looms over Dax. Fans rally and duel as Cole drags Dax up. Cole pushes Dax around, pie faces him, talks some trash, but Dax snarls as he gets up.

Dax throws a haymaker, Cole ROCKS Dax with a forearm! Dax swings, misses, Cole ROCKS him again! Cole ROCKS Dax against ropes, wrenches and whips but Dax reverses to reel Cole in for a GERMAN SUPELX! And Dax holds on to GERMAN SUPLEX again! Dax still has the waistlock but Cole switches to GERMAN SUPLEX back! Cole holds on, but Dax switches, GERMAN SUPLEX! Dax finishes his hat trick and fans fire up! A standing count begins as both men are down. Dax drags himself to the apron and up the ropes as fans chant for “FTR! FTR!” Cole ROCKS Dax first, climbs up after him, but Dax hits back!

The two brawl, Dax sends Cole down! Dax adjusts to DIVING- NO, Cole moves, but Dax lands on his feet! Pop-up, REBOUND POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!! Cole survives but Dax just grits his teeth and gets back up. Dax throws off his elbow pad but Cole BOOTS him first! Cole reels Dax in, GHOSTBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Dax survives and Cole is annoyed. Cole goes to a corner, tunes up the band, a shoutout to his hero, HBK. Dax slowly gets up, Cole runs in, but Dax gets under the superkick! O’Conner Roll, TWO! Dax goes up the corner to CROSSBODY!

Cole survives and no one can believe it! Another standing count starts as fans are electric!

Dax gets up and he grimaces. Fans rally up as Dax gets the legs and steps through! SHARPSHOOTER!! Cole endures, Dax sits deep, but the bad rib is a problem. Cole fights, tries to turn, and Dax can’t hold it! Dax falls off the hold and flops to the apron. Dax drags himself up, Cole runs in and BLASTS Dax to the railing! Dax is down and a ring count begins. Fans rally for Dax but the count is already 5 of 10. Dax reaches, crawls, gets back to ringside at 7, but he flops off the apron! The count is 9, Dax springs to life and in at 9.9!! Cole is furious so he gets Dax’s legs! Cole wants to, and does STEAL THE SHARPSHOOTER!

Dax endures, he reaches out, but Cole drags him away! Cole sits deep on the hold but Dax keeps fighting! Dax can’t, the ribs hurt! Dax taps, Cole wins!!

Winner: Adam Cole, by submission (advances to the semifinals)

Cole is going on to the next round, one step closer to keeping his promise. But who will he be meeting in the semifinals? We’ll find out in the main event!

 

Rampage will be early again this week!

Another round of NHL playoffs means this Friday’s Rampage will be at 5:30 Eastern, 2:30 Pacific! Make sure to schedule accordingly so you don’t miss a thing!

 

AEW hears from Jeff Hardy and Darby Allin.

Speaking of that main event, the Charismatic Enigma tells Darby that tonight is the night their worlds collide and their chemistry embraces one another. The Relentless One says no one wants to see these two exchange headlocks, that’s not what this match will be about. This will about getting crazy, getting psycho and do everything they live for. Jeff said it best, they’re more stuntmen than wrestlers. They’ve studied each other closely, this energy is going to be different. Darby knows fans want to see someone going to the hospital after tonight. Hell, Darby wants to do that. This is what they live for.

Darby even asked Tony Khan to just waive the rules and let these two go nuts. The people will see what this dream match is really all about. Will Tony give Darby want he wants tonight? Will it be a No Holds Barred Owen Hart Cup match?

 

Hangman Page is here!

The AEW World Champion is here to join commentary, because he wants to watch what happens with his own eyes.

CM Punk VS John Silver!

Before the Best in the World goes 1v1 with the Cowboy for #PrettyPlatinum at Double or Nothing, the Meat Man gets himself some! Will Johnny Hungy devour CM Punk? Or will it be #ClobberingTime on Long Island?

Punk wears a New York Islanders hockey jersey for Tavares, number 91, to get Long Island on his side. A nice try, as Long Island’s own Silver makes his entrance with the Dark Order seeing him out. Silver says hey to Brian “Q” Quinn of the Impractical Jokers before he gets in the ring. The bell rings, the two circle and fans rally up. They tie up, go around, and Punk puts Silver in the corner. The ref counts, fans duel, and Punk lets off at 4 to then go outside and soak it all in. Punk gets back in, circles and ties up with Silver again, and Punk headlocks. Punk grinds Silver down but Silver fights up to wrench out and headlock.

Punk powers out, Silver runs Punk over and fans cheer as he flexes. Silver runs, Punk drops, hurdles and goes to hip toss but Silver makes that a backslide! TWO, and Punk slides out. Silver waits as Punk cools off. Silver goes out, Punk gets back in, and Punk drops an elbow as Silver slides in. Punk ROCKS Silver, clinches in a corner, but Silver turns things around to fire off fast hands! Fans fire up as those forearms and stomps keep flying! The ref counts, Silver lets off at 4 and Silver brings Punk up for more. Silver goes up the corner, reels Punk in, TORNADO- NO! Punk tosses Silver, then CLOBBERS him!

Fans boo as Dynamite goes picture in picture. Punk goes back for Silver, brings him up, and scoops him for a BACKBREAKER! Punk stalks Silver to ropes, talks trash on Q, whips Silver and hits a body shot, into a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO! Punk stays cool while Silver gets to ropes. Silver CHOPS, ROCKS Punk, CHOPS him again, then ROCKS him again. Silver whips, Punk reverses and kitchen sink knees Silver down! Punk looks at Hangman, then goes back for Silver. Punk hits an atomic drop, then turns Silver for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Punk is annoyed but he clamps onto Silver with a chinlock.

Silver endures, fans rally, and Silver fights up to throw body shots. Punk knees low, whips Silver to a corner, and Dynamite returns to single picture as Punk goes corner to corner. Silver dodges and Punk hits only buckles! Punk gets stuck a moment but he flops out of the corner, and Silver ROCKS Punk with a forearm. Silver dodges, CHOPS, dodges and KICKS! Silver KICKS and KICKS and KICKS! Silver fire sup, runs, but Punk spins him around to a backslide! Silver rolls through to KICK, KICK and SUPERKICK! Then deadlift BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Punk survives but fans fire up for Silver!

Silver runs into the corner to ROCK Punk with a forearm! Silver then hops up, reels Punk in, TORNADO- NO, Punk denies it again! Silver dodges, goes up, jumps and TORNADO DDT hits! Cover, TWO! Punk survives another one but Silver says it’s time to go around! Fans fire up with Silver as he gets Punk in the torture rack. Punk fights free, ROUNDHOUSES, and Silver goes to a corner. Punk runs in, SHINING WIZARD! Then short arm LARIAT! Punk mocks the flex, and he drags Silver up to whip, CALF KICK! Punk goes out to the apron and he looks at Hangman. Fans rally and duel, Punk is taking his time just staring at the champ.

Punk aims at Silver, handsprings in, and steals BUCK SHOT?! Cover, Punk wins!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall

Hangman is done on commentary, not that he said much, and he storms right to the ring! Punk waits on him, and fans fire up as the two get in each other’s face! Punk asks if Hangman’s mad. Last week, it sounded like Hangman’s taking this all a little personal. Punk doesn’t know why Long Island doesn’t like him, but when it comes to them, Hangman and the title, it isn’t personal. It’s just business. Punk used to wake up and ask himself, “Are you a good guy?” This morning, Punk asked himself, “Are you the champ?” Punk’s answer was YES.

Last week, Hangman said he was going to destroy Punk? Well Punk just destroyed Hangman’s boy, that is a blueprint for what happens at Double or Nothing. And at the end of the night, Hangman will shake Punk’s hand, conscious or unconscious. Punk offers Hangman the chance now, but Hangman just flips him off! Fans love that #CowboySh*t, but will Hangman still have the AEW World Championship after taking Punk on 1v1?

 

Backstage interview with Jamie Hayter, Britt Baker & Rebel.

Tony Schiavone says in the opening round of the Women’s Owen Hart Cup, Britt Baker takes on the joker, whoever that will be, and Hayter takes on Toni Storm. Britt says this only makes sense given the conspiracy that exists in AEW against her. She can’t really prepare for her opponent, but she doesn’t care, she’ll still win. And so will that lovely lady, Hayter. See, here’s the thing about storms. When storms first come rolling in, they’re all violent and exciting. But then eventually, they pass. Tonight, the Storm is over and a Hayter is on the forecast. Schiavone asks if Britt realizes that if they both win, we get Britt VS Hayter in the semifinals.

Hayter says they shouldn’t worry about that right now. It’s fine, no worries. And if it does happen, at least it’ll be a fair fight, and the better woman will win. Britt gives a smirking look to Rebel, will Hayter end up hoping the joker takes out the Doctor?

 

Tony Nese w/ Mark Sterling VS Danhausen!

The Premier Athlete has had beef with both the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil, Hook, as well as the very nice, very evil “demon waif” making his AEW in-ring debut here tonight! Will Danhausen prove his powers here tonight? Or will he suffer his first loss in AEW right out the gate?

The bell rings and fans rally up behind Danhausen. Nese is annoyed but he circles with Danhausen. Nese then flexes on Danhausen, so Danhausen CURSES him! Sterling gets on the apron to yell at Danhausen, interrupting the casting, and Nese CLOBBERS Danhausen! Nese then runs side to side, PREMIER KNEE!! Cover, Nese wins!!

Winner: Tony Nese, by pinfall

This is all because of Sterling! Danhausen had no chance with Sterling there distracting him on Nese’s behalf! But Sterling gets on a mic to shout, “Are you shocked?! Oh, sorry! I’m not!” Sterling tells Nese that Danhausen got a televised entrance but Nese didn’t! What do we think about that? Nese runs to PREMIER KNEE again! Sterling says Tony Nese will just have to continue to embarrass all the internet meme wrestlers! He wants another one, and even sits Danhausen up. Nese brings down his kneepad, but here comes HOOK! Sterling is freaking out and Nese is squaring up as two of Long Island’s own are about to collide!

But then Nese and Sterling bail once Hook is in the ring. Danhausen flounders up while Hook stares down Nese. Fans want #Hookhausen but what does Hook say to the handshake? He accepts! Fans are thunderous, but then Hook just leaves on his own. Will this team-up of Cold-Hearted, Very Nice Devils be what humbles the Premier Athlete?

 

AEW returns and Wardlow is being escorted to the ring.

He’s still cuffed and has no music, but now his tron says “Boo Wardlow!” That tron must be MJF’s personal creation since it’s so cheap. But Wardlow has no choice but to get in the ring with security all over the place, as well as Shawn Spears armed with a chair. Mark Sterling has returned since MJF is another of his clients. And then a trailer for the new season of Dark Side of the Ring plays? Chris Jericho is narrating, “In the middle of the most barbaric match in the history of All Elite Wrestling between top star, MJF, and PG Punk…” Jericho realizes this is about MJF, and he sure ain’t narrating for that a-hole after all they’ve been through.

Wait, how much is the paycheck? Wow, okay, Jericho will do it. The amazing MJF was well on his way to a victory that felt like a dream, but it soon became a nightmare. Taz, “MJF’s consigliere,” says that his boy, MJF, the King of Long Island, had it won, but then Wardlow… Jake Roberts says Wardlow screwed it up. Taz can’t even speak, but Jake the Snake says Wardlow’s a bad man. He gave the Dynamite Diamond Ring to the wrong man in CM Punk. Then Wardlow attacks innocent security guards, costing MJF against Shawn Dean. Take it from Barry Horowitz, “legendary Jewish wrestler,” that Dean is a jobber!

Jericho continues to say that out of the kindness of MJF’s heart, he gave Wardlow TV matches. But that greedy piggy wanted more. The amazing MJF has therefore decided to sit down with Wardlow to talk over his contract. And in the most magical place in the world: Long Island, New York! Because he is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and he is better than you, and you know it. And of course, we return to present and the fans, being locals, are all chanting for MJF. MJF makes his entrance in an Islanders jersey of his own, with his name on it. MJF fist bumps fans for once, even copies CM Punk doing some crowd dives, then goes to the ring.

MJF gets the mic to cut his music so he can hear the cheers. Wardlow rolls his eyes and MJF conducts the fans. MJF tells Wardlow, “Now that’s a symphony, b*tch.” But let’s just be honest, Long Island. MJF loves you SOB’s, he really does! But unfortunately, we gotta talk to Wardlow. Let’s be honest, it’s a tale as old as time: a true underdog story, Biblical even, with David (MJF) and Goliath (Wardlow). The younger, smaller but way more jacked and humble and Salt of the Earth, Jewish prince from the holy land, and not Israel but the most magical place in the world, LI, NY! Versus the big dumb stupid oaf.

But we all know why we’re here. They’re to discuss the conditions Wardlow must clear to get his match with MJF at Double or Nothing, and then if Wardlow wins at DoN, since MJF is the “Mensch of the Centch,” then MJF lets Wardlow out of his contract. But before all that, since MJF is so humble, he wants to give Wardlow a chance to talk to his people. Fans boo but MJF has them hold on. They have an opportunity to show the world what Long Islanders are all about. So under no circumstances, wink wink wink, would he want each and every one of them to get up out of their seats and boo Wardlow out of the arena.

To reiterate those in the cheap seats. You’re all poor but you’re still beautiful. MJF winks almost every word as he says, “The last thing I would want each and every single one of you to do is create the loudest boo in the history of professional wrestling. We got that, Long Island?” Yes! So then, the floor is Wardlow’s. And the booing begins. Wardlow takes up his mic, but the mic doesn’t seem to be working. MJF says that’s really weird. He can’t hear Wardlow, can anyone? Nope! Should they let him try? No! Really? Then fine, he’s not gonna speak.

But let’s talk those conditions. And let’s be honest, because they’re being honest right now, right, Long Island? Wardlow is kind of the worst. And karma is coming his way for everything Wardlow did to MJF’s best bud back in the day, the American Roller Coaster, Cody Rhodes. Oh, what? He shouldn’t bring up 2024? That’s funny, neither does the guy in the back. Anyway, don’t worry. Back to now. Wardlow, if you want MJF at DoN, you’ve gotta get whipped. Yeah, MJF will take his belt and not just whip Wardlow once, twice or three times. Not four times, not five, not six, seven, eight, or nine. Shawn Spears, if you would.

Spears takes off his jacket and winds it up. How many times? TEN!! And if Wardlow gets past that, then he’ll have to wrestle Spears inside a solid steel cage. Wardlow laughs at that, but MJF doesn’t know why. Last time MJF checked, Wardlow’s 0-2 in a cage. And he isn’t done, either. This is not just any cage match, no no no. It will have a special guest referee, and his name is MAXWELL! JACOB! FRIEDMAN! And Wardlow, if you somehow get past that, MJF will give him the DoN match. But wait, they didn’t even get to what will happen there if Wardlow loses. Fans want to know, right? YES!

If Wardlow loses at Double or Nothing, he will never be allowed to sign a contract with AEW, forever! So what does the “War Pig” say? Is he too scared because this is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and he’s better than you, and you know it?! Wardlow gets the pen but he struggles to sign it because of the cuffs. MJF is frustrated already so he has them uncuff Wardlow. Sterling and Spears says that’s not a good idea. MJF says he knows what he’s doing. The cuffs are undone, MJF tells War Pig to sign, and Wardlow stands up to sign on the dotted line. Okay, put the cuffs back on and take him away.

Wardlow smirks as he lets the guard get close, and MJF calls Wardlow a coward. Then Wardlow SMACKS the guard off the table! And then TOSSES The table at the rest! Any that are still up, Wardlow DECKS, BOOTS and shoves away! Spears shields MJF as Wardlow finishes up with haymaker after haymaker! MJF tells Spears to go get Wardlow, but Wardlow DECKS Spears, too! And now MJF is all alone! Long Island freaks out, and MJF runs, only to get caught! Wardlow brings MJF back in, but Sterling gets on Wardlow’s back! MJF gets away but Wardlow throws Sterling down! Fans love it as Wardlow sets the table back up!

Wardlow rips off his shirt, snarls as Sterling gets up, and fans are okay with this happening to Sterling! POWERBOMB through the table!! MJF says Wardlow is not going to survive to make it to PPV, but will Wardlow prove MJF dead wrong?

 

AEW hears from Samoa Joe and his enemies.

Samoa Joe says, “One week, your ROH Television Champion will face the joker in his Owen Hart quarterfinal match-up. Since I’ve walked into AEW, all I’ve been faced with is jokers.” Sonjay Dutt says Joe is sleeping and wishing and dreaming and praying that maybe Jay Lethal is the joker. Ha, it’s not! Joe says he’s been dealing with “fools and clowns like Sonjay Dutt, like Jay Lethal, and their gargantuan protégé.” Dutt says Joe is probably wanting after Satnam Singh, the one in a billion! But it’s not him, either! But here’s a joke for Joe: an old adage that they’d say in India. Lethal knows it, too. “Your stomach is big, but your brain is small.”

Joe vows that he will win the Owen Hart Cup, and then he will come for Lethal and crew to settle things his way. Will Joe be able to trump whatever wild card is thrown his way? Or will the joker be the one laughing all the way to the next round?

 

FTW Championship: Ricky Starks VS Jungle Boy!

Before Team Taz’s #AbsolutePowerhouses take on Jurassic Express for the AEW World Tag Team Championships, we see how #StrokeDaddy and Jungle Jack Perry match-up 1v1! Will JB be a dual champion going into the tag title match? Or will Starks show JB exactly what FTW is all about?

The introductions are made, the orange belt is raised, and we see just who is an absolute man!

The two circle and fans rally. They tie up, go around, Starks waistlocks but JB drop toeholds. JB floats to a facelock, Starks switches that onto him, but JB slips out to get the arm.

Fans cheer the exchange but Starks is annoyed. JB blocks the sucker punch to ROCK Starks and knuckle lock one hand. JB goes for a corner but Starks reels him in to knee low! Starks SLAPS JB, then he brings him up in a knuckle lock. Starks goes up, rebounds and arm-drags! Starks kips up and strikes his pose! Fans fire up and Starks grins, but turns around into a CHOP from JB! JB knuckle locks, goes up the corner, and jumps around and around to rebound and arm-drag! Then dropkick!

JB kips up as Starks bails out, and fans fire up as JB copies the pose! The ring count starts as Dynamite goes picture in picture. Starks gets in but JB WRECKS him with a dropkick! JB goes out after Starks, CHOPS him, then follows him along the way. JB CLUBS Starks, fist bumps Q, then CLUBS Starks down. Starks hobbles away but JB follows after. JB CHOPS again, and shouts out more fans. JB keeps with Starks, CLUBS him against the apron, then refreshes the count. Starks goes to bump JB off the apron but JB blocks and body shots to SMACK Starks off the apron! JB then puts Starks in and hurries after.

Starks FLAPJACKS JB on ropes! JB writhes and clutches his ribs but Starks storms over to stomp him down! Starks kicks JB around, chokes him against the ropes, and the ref counts. Starks lets off at 4 and JB gets to a corner. Starks drags JB up, climbs up and swivels hips before he rains down fists! The ref counts, Starks gets 5 before JB hits an atomic drop!

Swerve says to get in the ring, JB’s already got more than three on Starks! Starks gets free at like 8, and then Starks CLOBBERS JB!

Starks reels JB in, ROSHAMBEAUX!! Cover, Starks wins!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall (still FTW Champion)

Swerve realizes he screwed up, but here come Christian Cage and Luchasaurus! They bump past Swerve to get in the ring and check on JB. Swerve tries to explain what he was doing, but they don’t care. Starks & Hobbs get in Swerve’s face now, but here comes KEITH LEE! The Limitless One backs up Swerve, will they make sure they’ve got next should Team Taz win the tag titles? And speaking of, JB is rather distraught over his loss. Captain Charisma walks up to JB to pat him on the shoulder and bring it in. Will the Jurassic Express be able to keep on track when they take on Starks & Hobbs?

 

The Jericho Appreciation Society heads to the ring.

The Influencer, the Wizard, the Demo God, Chris Jericho leads Daniel Garcia, Jake Hager, Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker out and Long Island sings Judas. There’s a podium in the ring and Parker goes up to it. “AEW Galaxy! Welcome to our victory speech!” Menard steps up now to say, “You wanna know what really turns me on? You wanna know what makes Daddy Magic’s nipples hard?!” Uh, no… Well it’s the fact that he gets to stand here as part of the greatest faction in the world, the Jericho Appreciation Society! Jericho then steps up to say, “There’s a lot of hometown heroes here tonight. I’m one of them, did you know that?”

Jericho says he was born “just down the road” in Manhasset, but then he moved away pretty damn quick cuz this place is a dump! Aw c’mon, you guys know it sucks. Oh, does some nerd in the crowd have a problem with that? Jericho’ll throw a fireball at you, because he’s a wizard! Jericho says the JAS did exactly what they said they would do when they “systematically eliminated Santana, Ortiz, and that piece of trash, Eddie Kingston. They are gone! We win, they lose.” Hager raises Parker’s hand in victory while Jericho tells Santana, Ortiz & Kingston to just stay at home. Especially Kingston. Because Jericho 2:16 says “I just burned your face!”

And besides, Kingston has to stay home and take care of his wife. He’s gotta make sure she feels better. If she doesn’t, have her give Jericho a call. Garcia says the story stays the same every time a pro-wrestler steps to a sports entertainer: every single time, the sports entertainer wins! Jericho takes the mic back but here comes JON MOXLEY! The Maniac is a pro-wrestler for sure as he comes in through the crowd! And on top of that, he’s a good friend of Kingston’s, and an enemy of Jericho’s! Moxley makes it to ringside, but Jericho gives him one chance to go on another extended sabbatical of three months. Get outta here now!

Because guess what? There’s only one Moxley, and five JAS! Uh, Moxley isn’t alone. Here comes BRYAN DANIELSON! And WHEELER YUTA! And hell, count William Regal, too! The full Blackpool Combat Club is here, and Jericho says that’s still 5v4! But fans are chanting for “EDDIE! EDDIE!” And from under the ring, it’s the MAD KING! Eddie is here, even with his face badly burned, and he brought Santana & Ortiz! Jericho and his society turn around and see them! Those three on one side, BCC on the other, 6v5 and fans chant at the JAS, “You F’d Up! You F’d up!” And just as it sinks in for Jericho, the brawl begins!

Bryan is after Menard, Ortiz has Parker, Santana and Moxley are after Hager, Yuta has Garcia, and of course Kingston’s after Jericho! Kingston CHOKES Jericho, even! The BCC, Santana & Ortiz throw the others out, but Hager goes to save Jericho! Regal goes after Jericho to reel him in and DECK him! The JAS goes running for it as the Kingston and company stand tall! Will the sports entertainers survive these violent and angry pro-wrestlers?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Rosa VS Deeb.

Good ol’ JR says, “If you want somebody that can out-think ya, that’d be Serena. Serena Deeb is very cerebral.” Dustin Rhodes says Deeb took things into her own hands in a dastardly way, and people took notice. Schiavone says that as much as he knows how great a competitor Deeb is, he doesn’t think Thunder Rosa can be beaten. Dustin says he mentors, coaches and supports Rosa 110%. JR says Rosa is more physical than Deeb, and Schiavone adds that Rosa pushes herself. The champion is the favorite, because she is the champion. La Mera Mera is the frontrunner for winning at Double or Nothing, but will the Professor of Pro-Wrestling have a winning formula?

 

Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Opening Round: Toni Storm VS Jamie Hayter!

The Lightning From Down Under has competed in and even won her fair share of tournaments, and looks to make even more history with this one! But will this Storm fizzle out? Or are Hayters gonna hate it when it’s #ToniTime in the semifinals?

The bell rings and the two tie right up. They go around, Storm headlocks but Hayter endures the grind. Hayter slips out the back, headlocks Storm, but Storm rolls her to a cover. ONE, but Hayter holds on to shift to a facelock. Storm switches the facelock onto Hayter, they roll, and Storm hooks an arm. Hayter fights up, Storm throws her down hard for a lateral press, ONE! Storm keeps on the facelock but Hayter throws body shots. Hayter gets free and gets away to a corner. Storm steps to Hayter but Hayter stays back to catch her breath. Fans rally and duel, the two reset and feel things out. They knuckle lock, then go shoulder to shoulder!

The test of strength is a deadlock, but Hayter starts bending Storm back. Hayter sweeps a leg, cover, ONE as Storm gets her hand up! Hayter puts it down, ONE as Storm gets the other up. Hayter puts Storm down, Storm bridges up! Hayter CHOPS Storm on the stomach! Things speed up, Storm redirects and basement dropkicks! Hayter bails out, Storm pursues and throws forearms! Storm puts Hayter in, Hayter gets moving and she BOOTS Storm off the apron! Storm is down and Hayter dusts herself off as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Hayter goes out after Storm, drags her up and snap suplexes her to the floor hard! Storm writhes and pounds the mat but Hayter gets in the ring. Hayter counts along with the ref but Storm drags herself up and to the ring at 5 of 10. Hayter stomps Storm right down! Hayter digs her boots in at the corner, the ref counts and Hayter lets off at 4. Hayter then drags Storm up, whips her hard into buckles, then brings her around to do it again! Cover, TWO! Storm gets back to the corner but Hayter mocks the fans. Hayter CLUBS Storm, Storm kicks from below, it’s scrappy even with Storm on the mat! Hayter drags Storm up to snap suplex!

Hayter takes her time soaking up heat while Storm writhes. Now Hayter covers, ONE! Hayter is annoyed that Storm is still in this but she clamps on a headlock. Hayter grinds Storm, shifts to a facelock, but Storm endures. Hayter hooks an arm, she has a grovit of sorts, but Storm fights up. Dynamite returns to single picture as Storm throw body shots. Hayter blocks the whip, then CHOPS! Storm CHOPS back, so Hayter CHOPS again! They go CHOP for CHOP, neither letting go of the wrist! They start throwing forearms, DOUBLE FOREARMS take them both down! Fans fire up while both women get to corners.

Storm fires herself up and fans rally behind her! Storm runs corner to corner, HIP ATTACK! Then she hauls Hayter up, TORNADO DDT! Tonight is Tornado Night, apparently! And furthermore, Storm goes to the apron as Hayter bails out, TORNADO DDT to the floor! Storm drags Hayter back into the ring, then climbs up the corner. Hayter stands, Storm leaps, CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!! Hayter barely gets that shoulder up! Storm is frustrated but she drags Hayter back up. Hayter fights the Alabama lift, then catches Storm for an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Storm survives and now Hayter is frustrated.

Hayter drags Storm back up, ripcords, but Storm ducks and gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX! Hayter flounders to a corner and Storm hurries after her. They both go to the apron, and Storm fires forearm after forearm! But Hayter gets her, APRON URENAGE!! Hayter drags Storm back in and fans are fired up! Hayter RAMS Storm into a corner, hoists her up top, and then goes up after her. Hayter HEADBUTTS Storm, then brings her up, SUPERPLEX! But she holds on to get Storm up, but Storm cradle counters! TWO!! Storm dodges Hayter’s haymaker to backslides, Hayter rolls through, but into the STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (advances to the semifinals)

Well, at least now Britt won’t have to worry about facing a friend in the next round. But the question will be, will Storm be facing the Doctor? Or the joker?

 

AEW hears from Scorpio Sky and Frankie Kazarian.

The Face of the Revolution says he will make everyone put respect on his name and the AEW TNT Championship. This Friday on Rampage, he faces someone who is a brother to him, is a former tag team partner, and is someone he traveled the globe with many times over in Frankie Kazarian. It’ll be friendly fire but the title is on the line, so it will be hot as hell. But there can only be ONE Face of TNT. And this Friday, we’re looking at it. Scorpio will SCU there.

As for the Heavy Metal Rebel, Lexi Nair interviews him about this match. How is he feeling about taking on a former tag partner? Kaz has a lot on his mind, but he gets interrupted by Sammy Guevara & Tay Conti. Sammy has some thoughts for Kaz. Kaz has history with Sky, but that man Kaz knew is not the one he’s facing this Friday. That man is dead, and this one will stab Kaz in the back. Kaz can’t trust Scorpio. Trust? A lecture on trust from these two? Sammy, Kaz has been around a long time, he knows who he can and cannot trust. More importantly, he trusts himself, and ultimately, that’s all he needs. So go be unlikeable somewhere else.

Sammy hopes Kaz is right. And he says he’ll SCU later. SamTay kiss before heading out, and Kaz says Sammy’s vlog sucks. But will the Heavy Metal Rebel be ready for anything against American Top Team’s leading man?

 

Double or Nothing’s Buy-In has a match!

After the shocking defeat and the amazing moment in the ring, #Hookhausen has a match against Tony Nese & Mark Sterling! Will Smart Mark and his premier client regret angering the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil into doing something very nice, very evil?

 

Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament Opening Round No Holds Barred: Jeff Hardy w/ Matt Hardy VS Darby Allin w/ Sting!

Tony Khan has approved the special request of these two daredevils! Now nothing, not disqualifications, not count-outs, not even self-preservation, will hold back the Charismatic Enigma and Relentless One! But then whose body lasts longer and moves on to the semifinals?

The bell rings and Darby rushes to SHOTGUN Jeff down! Jeff gets out but Darby DIVES! Direct hit at the ramp and Darby is fired up! Fans fire up with him as he brings out chair after chair after chair! He’s got about eight chairs! Darby starts setting the chairs up and fans are fired up for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” Darby goes from chair square to a chair rectangle, using all eight chairs! Jeff crawls to the ring but Darby hurries after. Jeff FLAPJACKS Darby onto the steel steps! Darby checks his face while Jeff moves the steps around. Sting and Matt give Jeff space, but Darby RAMS into Jeff. Darby whips, Jeff reverses but Darby leaps over the steps!

Darby rolls and comes back, only for Jeff to leap off the steps and CLOBBER Darby! Fans fire up while Jeff shakes out his arms. Jeff hobbles over to reposition the steps again. The steps are now on their side, and with the top facing Darby. Darby gets up but Jeff drags him onto the steps. Darby slips off to RAM Jeff into the post, and almost into Matt! Matt hurries to get away and Darby puts Jeff in the ring. Darby drags Jeff up but Jeff fights back through the ropes. TWIST OF HOTSHOT! Jeff then goes looking, and he brings out a LADDER! Fans love this already as Jeff brings that ladder into the ring!

Dynamite goes picture in picture as Jeff hurries to get in. Darby grabs the ladder for his own, but now he and Jeff tug-o-war over it. They both drop the ladder to go after each other! Jeff kicks low, reels Darby in, but Darby fights free to hop on, CODE RED! Cover, TWO! Jeff survives but Darby grabs the ladder. Darby moves it aside and he drags Jeff around. Darby runs, springboards, but Jeff catches the Coffin Splash! Jeff spins Darby around to JAWBREAKER! Darby flounders to a corner, Jeff rallies the fans and gives Darby the HARDYAC DROPKICK! Darby flops out of the ring but Hardy has to steady himself a moment.

Sting coaches Darby but Jeff goes out after him. Jeff stomps Darby, smacks him off those chairs, and again, before going into the ring. Jeff hobbles, gets that ladder, and stands it up. That is a TALL ladder as Jeff makes sure it is intertwined with the ropes. Darby is sprawled on his own chair rectangle, and fans fire up as Jeff starts climbing! Jeff reaches the top of that ladder, but Darby hurries up the other side! Jeff hurries to meet Darby as Dynamite returns to single picture, but Darby YANKS Jeff down! Hardy gets crotched on his enigma! Darby kicks Jeff down, then Darby climbs! Darby’s up top real fast, and he copies Jeff’s usual pose, before a SUPER FULL METAL SWANTON!!!

Fans lose their minds from Darby and Jeff crashing on the chairs!! It’s hard to tell if the chairs or the human beings are in worse shape! The ref checks on Darby and Jeff but somehow they’re both still conscious. Darby pushes chairs aside as fans chant, “This is Awesome!” Darby manages to get Jeff in a headlock and drag him to the ring. Darby pushes Jeff in, then climbs the corner! But Jeff drags himself to the apron on the other side. So Darby adjusts course, APRON COFFIN DROP only gets apron as Jeff moves!! Matt still checks on his brother while the ref and Sting check on Darby. Jeff goes out as fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!”

Jeff drags Darby onto the steel steps. TWIST OF FATE to the steel! But Jeff isn’t done there, he throws off his shirt and goes up the corner! Fans are ready to lose their minds again as Jeff aims, SWANTON onto steel steps and only steps! Darby dodges, the steps get bent, and now the ref checks Jeff! Jeff is somehow okay to continue, and Darby is somehow hobbling his way over to Jeff. Darby drags Jeff up, puts him in the ring, then Darby goes up the corner again. COFFIN DROP!! Cover, TWO!?!? And into a ghost pin into the ladder!! JEFF WINS!!

Winner: Jeff Hardy, by pinfall (advances to the semifinals)

Even Matt is shocked! But somehow, someway, Brother Nero snatches victory from the jaws of defeat! Now will he render Adam Cole OBSOLETE? Speaking of, the Undisputed Elite, from Adam Cole to reDRagon to the Young Bucks appear on stage. Will Cole be the first to represent the Undisputed Elite in the Owen Hart Cup finals? And what of Kyle O’Reilly taking on Rey Fenix?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for Dynamite here, and an awesome start to the Owen Hart tournaments! Good promo from Britt and Hayter, Storm VS Hayter was great stuff, but of course Hayter and Britt weren’t going to be facing each other next round. Storm gets a great win, and I can’t wait to see who the women’s tournament joker will be. I have a feeling Britt finds a way to win, no matter who it is, but it’ll be a great match to give us Britt VS Storm. Cole VS Dax was an awesome opener, and they had a lot of great references to the rivalry of Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart, especially with Cole using the Sharpshooter to win. Cole is moving on, it’d be pretty wild if he and Britt both won the tournaments.

The main event was badass because of how they made it No Holds Barred. Jeff and Darby went balls to the wall with that, and WOW that ladder top Swanton onto those chairs. Not to mention how that wasn’t even the end! I think this is the second time steel steps have been bent like that in AEW. But then Jeff winning was actually quite the shock. I thought Jeff was going to drop out early so that the Hardys and the Young Bucks could build towards Double or Nothing. I suppose it can still happen next round with Cole beating Jeff, and we do get a dream match of Cole VS Jeff. Joe and Lethal’s team have a good promo to hype up Joe VS Joker, can’t wait to see who they get for that, too.

Good vignette to hype up Rosa VS Deeb, and a good promo from Scorpio as well as a good promo from Kaz with Sammy all to hype up the TNT Championship. I do like that Sammy thinks Kaz should be careful of Scorpio still being a Heel, but Sammy being a Heel himself, he could just be messing with Kaz. Nese squashing Danhausen to then give rise to #Hookhausen was great stuff, and everyone is going to love that Buy-In tag match. I expect Sterling takes the loss so that Nese stays unpinned and unsubmitted in AEW, and then Nese loses to Hook 1v1 down the line. Hell, I bet fans get Hookhausen to the tag titles because fans love them both so much.

The FTW Championship was great stuff, but I had a feeling something screwy would happen. Starks retains, and then we got great stare downs from Team Taz, Keith & Swerve, and Jurassic Express. Jurassic Express VS Starks & Hobbs is good, but I wonder if they’ll step this up into a Triple Threat. A Triple Threat can be a great way to get the titles off Jurassic Express without actually hurting them. And with Jungle Boy needing Christian to encourage him, we could be seeing Jurassic Express falling apart and turning on Christian or vice-versa. FTR can come back to the AEW World Tag titles after Double or Nothing, perhaps getting their big moment at All Out.

The contract signing for MJF VS Wardlow was great stuff from top to bottom. MJF had Long Island on his side, they played along with him perfectly, and so much of what MJF is putting Wardlow through is a great callback to MJF VS Cody. The Dark Side of the Ring parody was genius, too, especially with Jericho’s narration. Wardlow will somehow, someway make it through the whipping, the rigged cage match, and will get to beat up MJF. And speaking of Jericho, the JAS had a great segment, and I like that the BCC are reinforcing Kingston’s team. It is good continuity since Moxley is Kingston’s friend, and with Yuta going to Japan for Best of the Super Juniors, Moxley and Danielson make Kingston’s team five, we could get JAS VS Team Mad King in Blood & Guts or some other big match.

There was also a lot of genius stuff in Punk VS Silver with Hangman on commentary. Punk played being Heel this time to keep us guessing after Hangman’s promo last week felt almost Heel. Turns out, Tavaren left the Islanders so that’s why it was the perfect jersey for Punk to wear. Punk VS Silver was a great match in itself, and Punk stealing Buck Shot to win was wild. Punk had a great promo to get on Hangman’s nerves, and Hangman just flipping Punk off was a fitting response. Their match at Double or Nothing still feels like it could go either way, Vegas is going to be electric that whole match.

And for those wondering, all the extra Tornado DDT’s from tonight, they’re all in honor of Fuego Del Sol. It seems that after a surgery from last month, Fuego’s neck is now left with a one inch hole in it! He shared a picture of it on his Twitter, but being that it is a hole in his neck, be careful if you go looking for it. On behalf of the Chairshot, I hope Fuego gets well soon and can return to the ring.

My Score: 8.9/10

Nese puts Brody in the ring, tags Daivari, and they mug Brody more, They both run, to DOUBLE SHOULDER Brody down! Cover, TWO! Daivari hurries to bring Brody around in a facelock, and turns him for a NECKBREAKER! Daivari CHOKES Brody on ropes, the ref counts, and Daivari lets off. Daivari argues with the ref, so that Sterling can CHOKE Brody! Sterling scurries away like the weasel he is, and then Daivari stands on Brody in the corner!

The ref counts, Daivari lets off and he drags Brody over. Tag to Nese, and Nese stomps Brody while Daivari anchors the legs. Rampage returns to single picture as Nese and Daivari let off. Nese soaks up heat, stalks Brody to the corner, and he grins as he says “All day, baby.” Nese CHOPS but Brody gets mad! Brody fires forearms and elbows, DECKS Nese, then storms up. Nese throat chops! Then Nese runs, but into an URENAGE! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Brody crawls, reaches out, hot tags to Malakai and Daivari!

Nese gets in but Malakai ELBOWS him down! Daivari kicks and whips but Malakai RANAS! Nese is up but the JUMP KNEE knocks him down! Daivari stands and Malakai QUEBRADAS him down! Cover, TWO!

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!

Roddy kicks the legs, fires boxing elbows, then ELBOWS Ben before he runs and SICK KICKS! Then he hits an OLYMPIC SLAM! The fans fire up with Roddy and the Kingdom, then the STRONG KNEE knocks Ben down! Cover, Roddy wins!

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?

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?

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?

Action then slingshots back in, but Lee steps in!

Action builds speed, the ref stops Lee, but the ref doesn’t see Ogogo CLOBBER Action! The fans boo and then the ref notices Ogogo, but Ogogo steps away. Shane storms into the ring to drag Action up and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Action over to the STP corner, and he CHOPS Action! Lee exaggerates his shock, and then Shane DECKS Action. Shane drags Action up, tags Lee, and they mug Action.

Shane flips Action back up to KNEE him in the face! Ogogo and Lee get in for defense, Shane DECKS Action!! Cover, STP wins!

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

PLAY BY PLAY

Will Ospreay is here!

Calgary fires up for the Aerial Assassin as he makes his way out, International Championship in hand. Ospreay high-fives some fans before he goes into the ring and gets a mic. Ospreay then sits on a corner while the fans cheer him on. “Thank you kindly. So last week, at the end of Dynamite, I’ll be honest with you guys, I was appalled, I was disgusted, but I’ll be honest, I wasn’t surprised. I had heard rumors about MJF.” The fans boo that name, and Ospreay says he’d heard that MJF is one of the most insecure men in pro-wrestling. And he showed it! Cuz a guy like Daniel Garcia earns every opportunity he gets.

And the moment Garcia starts creeping up on MJF’s spot, MJF does whatever it takes to stop it. MJF stand son this second rope, just like Ospreay now, and hits a Tombstone Piledriver. Garcia is still at home with no feeling in his arms and no idea when he’s coming back, if he ever does. And MJF wants to blame the fans? The fans boo that, too. Ospreay says MJF wants to blame the fans for when he opened up to them, spoke about his ADHD. Bruv, Ospreay’s got that, too, but it doesn’t give him an excuse to be a little prick! Listen, alright? Ospreay has only had a few interactions with MJF, and Ospreay already knows MJF doesn’t like him.

Here’s the reasons why. Reason 1: That bidding war of 2024 didn’t go MJF’s way, because Tony Khan would rather spend his money on guys that will elevate AEW rather than bury it! Reason 2: Apparently, Ospreay is a “talentless hack?” Alright, MJF is welcomed to his opinion. But we’re in Canada right now, right? And they are a very well-educated, smart pro-wrestling fans, and Ospreay is pretty sure they can agree that Ospreay has more talent in his left NUT than MJF has in his entire body! The fans cheer that! Some even chant “LEFT NUT! LEFT NUT!” and Ospreay grins.

Ospreay says the main reason MJF doesn’t like him is because Ospreay reminds people what the identity of AEW is meant to be. Ospreay represents the foundation of this place! MJF came swanning back after injury, and he had a tattoo on his calf with “AEW: Bet On Yourself.” But if he was honest, MJF would’ve made that tattoo say, “AEW: All About Myself,” because he is a selfish little prick! If MJF was gonna be honest, he would’ve just said he only cares about himself. And Ospreay has to be honest, he feels like the moment he stepped foot in AEW, he has been cleaning up someone else’s mess, and now he’s found the guy!

But Ospreay respects this. The whole act is MJF is a scumbag. Some cheer it because he’s “their scumbag.” And Ospreay welcomes it! Because that right there is the best version of MJF. It’s been the same crap for about five years, but that’s still the best version of MJF. Ospreay welcomes it, because he wants to show MJF that “the level of the devil” is just the ground floor for Ospreay and he’s on the top floor of a skyscraper, bruv! The fans cheer again, and Ospreay says this time, Ospreay won’t be in England grieving over his nana. He’s here in Calgary, looking for a fight! So if MJF is back there, get on out here so they can handle this!

The fans cheer, and MJF’s music hits! Ospreay is ready, looking up at the ramp. But MJF isn’t coming out? The fans boo but then wait, there’s a tapping on glass. MJF is here via the tron, sipping wine. Not bad. But oh, Ospreay thought MJF was coming out there? No, the people no longer deserve the privilege of being so close to MJF’s greatness. Nor does MJF want to inhale their stench, he deserves better than that. MJF tells “William” that MJF has faced all the favorites the fans thought were top guys, and guess what? They fell beneath his feet. Does Ospreay think he’s different? What Ospreay is, is a joke.

Ospreay is a flavor of the month, MJF is a flavor of the Millennium. And MJF hasn’t had to practically kill himself to get them interested. MJF just had to speak. Ospreay wrestles not for himself but for the fans, he is their little toy monkey. Eventually, they’ll wind Ospreay up, watch him crash the cymbals, and then they’ll realize they’ve seen it all before, and they’ll grow tired of it. And then, they’ll throw him out in the trash, just like they tried to do to MJF. Difference is, MJF is irreplaceable. Ospreay on the other hand… They’ll move on, and call the next flippy guy “The best in the world.”

MJF has only been in this sport for ten years, and he’s seen ten of Ospreay’s type come and go. Great wrestlers are a dime a dozen. Here today, gone tomorrow. MJF is a generational talent. And if Ospreay gets in the ring with MJF, Ospreay will be exposed. So Ospreay wants a match? Ospreay wants MJF tonight? Nope. MJF is not like Ospreay. He doesn’t wrestle for fun or amusement, but for the betterment of AEW. SO here’s a little proposition for Ospreay: Next week, MJF VS Ospreay for the International Championship. That way, for the first time in Ospreay’s career, he won’t be wrestling for stars. MJF will be punching Ospreay until he sees stars.

MJF finishes his wine, having thrown down the gauntlet, but Ospreay smiles. “Adorable. Max, I’ll see you next week, ya little b*tch!” And so the match is made! Will the #BillyGOAT stomp out the Wolf of Wrestling?

 

2024 Men’s Owen Hart Cup Finals: Bryan Danielson VS Hangman Page!

The American Dragon has acknowledged that his final year of full-time wrestling has not been his best, but he vows to finish strong and go out on top. However, The Black Hat has returned with a mean streak deeper and darker than it’s ever been before! Who not only wins this tournament, but wins their golden ticket to the top of the mountain?

Given the animosity Hangman has shown since his return, Tony Khan has called upon Jeff Jarrett to be tonight’s special guest enforcer! Will the Last Outlaw be able to lay down the law if Hangman crosses the line?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Hangman shoves Bryan down, but Bryan gets right up. They feel things out, tie up, and Hangman throws Bryan down by his hair. The ref reprimands but Hangman doesn’t care. Hangman and Bryan tie up again, and Hangman powers Bryan to the corner. Bryan turns things around, lets off slowly, and then tries a kick!

Hangman runs in but Bryan DUMPS him out! Bryan gets moving and he DIVES! Direct hit but both men hit railing! The ref hurries out to check and Bryan is alright. Bryan puts Hangman in, goes up a corner, and MISSILE DROPKICKS!

The fans fire up as Hangman tumbles to a corner! Bryan manages to kip up and the fans fire up! Bryan snarls, runs corner to corner, but into a BOOT! Hangman TOSSES Bryan out, but Bryan stays on the apron. So Hangman triangle jumps, but Bryan gets under the lariat! Hangman BLINDSIDES Bryan, then he POSTS Bryan! Bryan falls to the floor, the ref reprimands, and Hangman has a wild look in his eyes as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Hangman drags himself up with the ropes, goes out after Bryan, and throws hands. Bryan is already busted open from the post, so Hangman is opening that wound more! Hangman drags Bryan up to RAM him into steel steps! Hangman refreshes the ring count, storms over to Bryan. Hangman DRIBBLES Bryan against the side of the steps! Hangman SMACKS Bryan off the steps again and again, then lets off as the ref counts. Hangman soaks up the heat while Bryan sputters. The ref counts, but Hangman drags Bryan up and into the ring. Hangman drags Bryan up just to DECK him with a right!

Bryan flounders, the ref checks on him, but Bryan won’t give up. So Hangman DECKS him again! Bryan goes to ropes again, but Hangman is right on him. Hangman ROCKS Bryan and Bryan goes to a corner. Hangman climbs up the corner to rain down fists! The ref counts, but so do the fans, and Hangman goes all the way to nine, before he flips everyone off! The ref checks on Bryan while Dynamite returns to single picture. Bryan still wants to fight so Hangman BOOTS him! Hangman DIGS his fingers at the bloody forehead but the ref tells him to let off. Hangman steps away, Jarrett is watching closely.

Hangman stands Bryan up to ROCK him! Bryan KICKS back! Hangman ROCKS Bryan, but Bryan KICKS again! The fans fire up but Hangman ROCKS Bryan again! Bryan KICKS, and KICKS, and- NO, Hangman blocks that one to SLEEPER SWING! Then a SLAM, and Hangman stomps a mudhole into Bryan! The fans boo but Hangman lets off. Bryan’s crimson mask grows on that right side of his face, but Hangman looms over him. Bryan crawls to a corner, Hangman stands him up, and Hangman CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! The CHOPS keep going, and then Bryan kneels, so Hangman ROCKS Bryan again!

Bryan sputters, rises up, but Hangman stands him up in the corner. Hangman CHOPS again and again and again! Hangman ROCKS Bryan again, but Bryan huffs ‘n’ puffs. Bryan CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS! Then he UPPERCUTS! And UPPERCUTS! And UPPERCUTS into a backslide! Bryan rolls through to get the ARMBAR! The fans fire up as Hangman flails and reaches out! Bryan shifts around, omoplata! LEBELL LOCK!! Hangman endures, reaches out and has the ROPEBREAK with a leg! Bryan lets go fast, and Jarrett coaches him. Bryan rises and aims to KICK! And KICK! And KICK! But Hangman blocks one!

Hangman fireman’s carries but Bryan fights it with HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Hangman powers through to pop Bryan into a SAIDO! Bryan is folded up and clutches his neck again.

Hangman gets up to BOOT! Bryan ROUNDHOUSES! Hangman and Bryan both spin, DOUBLE ROLLING ELBOWS take them down!! The ref checks, both men are conscious, so now a standing count begins.

Bryan CHOPS back! Hangman CHOPS again, so Bryan CHOPS again! Hangman CHOPS, Bryan puts Hangman in a corner to CHOP and KICK on repeat!

Martha Hart walks out to not only hug Jarrett, but to help him bring the Owen Hart Foundation Championship belt and trophy to the ring. Martha has the mic to say hello to Calgary. It is great to be back in the Saddledome for Stampede Week! And in Owen Hart’s hometown, it is with great pleasure that she awards the Owen Cup to Bryan Danielson. Jarrett brings trophy and belt over, and Bryan holds them up proudly.

Bryan shakes Martha’s hand, and Martha says see you in Wembley Stadium for his AEW World Championship match! The tron graphic makes it official, and then “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The Realest is here to look his next challenger in the eyes! Will Swerve slay the American Dragon in London?

For the milestone 250TH EPISODE of Dynamite, Ospreay and MJF will have their match! The International Championship will be on the line, all to kick off the show in Little Rock, Arkansas! Who will lead AEW by example when they stand tall as champion?

 

AEW returns and…

Swerve & Nana have the ring to themselves now, and Swerve has a mic. The fans chant, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve says he stood on that stage not more than a week ago, staring down Will Ospreay, looking at that man eye to eye, and you know what Ospreay said? Ospreay said that the best in the world is the one who holds the world championship. And there was a lot of doubt being thrown around, so Swerve had to silence that. Now that Swerve has beat Ospreay, you’re looking at the Best int he World, THE AEW World Champion!

And by the way, congratulations to Bryan Danielson for winning the Men’s Owen Cup. The fans cheer, and Swerve says it will be a true honor and privilege facing Bryan in the main event of All In next month. But… Swerve isn’t over the fact Bryan has that one win over him. And Swerve is someone who holds onto grudges. They are at two different points in their careers now. Bryan’s on the downslide, while Swerve… Well, you could say you’re looking at the most dangerous man in AEW.

“Speaking of which, it wasn’t more than a couple weeks ago that The EVPs, The Elite, had walked down to this ring. (Nana) You were there when that happened, right?” Nana confirms it. The Elite came out here, tried to bribe Swerve with some “Miniature” Reebok pumps, and offered Swerve a spot on their Blood & Guts team. Well, Swerve is here to officially announce that he will be in Blood & Guts. On Team AEW. The fans cheer that! Swerve says he said before, you do not make a Team AEW and do not offer the AEW World Champion a spot. Swerve is gonna lead the team, and not just do one but two things Bryan Danielson could not.

Swerve already beat Will Ospreay, and now he will lead Team AEW in victory against The Elite. And speaking of The Elite, we are now in this Dynasty Era. There were three men appointed the lead of The Dynasty. First, yours truly, Swerve Strickland. Second, the International Champion, Will Ospreay. And third, the Continental Champion, Kazuchika Okada. So then how about we do this? Swerve puts out a challenge to Okada, so that the world champion can show him how to really make it rain. “B*tch.”

So in closing, Swerve will see everyone at All In. And Bryan, this Swerve firmly promises you: “This will be your final countdown.” WHOSE HOUSE!? “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The Mogul is making big moves, but will he have enough ammo in the arsenal to take down all his targets?

 

The Acclaimed present: Two Times!

That’s right, a brand new music video from Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass! Platinum says, “I’mma beat the Young Bucks two times~. Tag champs going on two times~. Young Bucks just a couple two times~. I’mma push them back like their hairline~. (Oh snap!) I’mma turn them into a headline, I’mma turn a couple fake boys into a True Crime! Splatter on the mat, hang ’em up in the Guggenheim. I’m so artsy, they can’t even draw a dime. Hit ’em with a Mic drop, Brown boys, white hot. Black eyes all up on your face, that’s a bright spot.

“You some little guys, I’mma hit you with the kibosh. Crime scene, looking photogenic like you Chris Bosh. Can’t even walk a mile in my path, you in sneakers. Read the news in the dirt sheet, who the leakers? Young Bucks talk a big game, can’t answer a question. Matthew & Nicholas, the cancer o’ wrestlin’. Knocking on my office door, you can get to yappin’. History repeats itself and we can see what happens. I’ll wipe your nose, someone get me a napkin. We beat ’em last month, now we need a reenactment.

“I’mma beat the Young Bucks two times~. Tag champs going on two times~. Young Bucks just a couple two times~. I’mma push them back like their hairline~. (Oh snap!) What’s the point of time? All of us are unsigned. Strugglin’ to make it, put it all on the line. Y’all had a chance to improve on the game, had to go away when you found you couldn’t hang. When it first started, it was all great. Now you went and turned into the things that you hate. Wearing cheap suits, wanna flash it, control. You ain’t for the boys, you ain’t passin’ the code. Rainmaker only came here for the money. Bring in Jack Perry, are you tryin’ to be funny?

“And you got a job for your family and boys, but what about your friends that are still unemployed? You don’t really talk about them, but we does. Hung Bucks, your kids walk back to Reseda. Y’all had a chance to improve on the sport. Fast-forward five years, now Acclaimed got the torch.” And with that torch, Platinum has just roasted Matthew & Nicholas! Will Caster & Bowens be looking to go All In with The Elite?

 

Stampede Street Fight: Samoa Joe VS Chris Jericho!

The Samoan Submission Specialist asked The Learning Tree if he still had faith in humanity. Joe wants to know if Jericho thinks anything of his fellow man with how he throws around his condescending advice. And Joe really wants to know if Jericho actually thinks anyone will come to his rescue when Joe is tearing the Learning Tree apart, limb by limb! It is time to conduct such an experiment under extreme conditions, will Jericho even survive the Stampede?

The Bad Apple, Bryan Keith, is by Jericho’s side. Jericho waves to the fans but Joe doesn’t look away from The “For the World” Champion. The bell rings, the fans rally for Joe, and the two stare down. Jericho talks a little trash, but then Joe snatches the cowboy hat away. Jericho says don’t do anything to that hat, that’s his hat. Joe says okay, okay. Joe PUNCHES Jericho through the hat! Joe then JABS away on Jericho in the corner! Then he RIDGE HANDS Jericho down! Jericho sputters up to his feet but Joe HEADBUTTS!

Jericho ROCKS Joe, CHOPS him, then CHOPS again. Jericho CHOPS then whips, but Joe ducks ‘n’ dodges to DIVE onto Keith! Joe is not taking any chances, he TOSSES Keith into the crowd! The fans fire up as Joe goes back to the ring. Jericho hits Joe with a dropkick, CLUBS him, then drags him up to whip him hard into railing! Jericho JAMS Joe up with a chair, then shows it off. The fans are torn, and Jericho SMACKS Joe on the back!

Jericho drags Joe up, puts him in the ring, and then hurries to bring stuff out from under the ring. Jericho has found a black bag! Jericho BOOTS Joe, then holds up the bag. Jericho pours out HORSESHOES! The fans fire up seeing those, and Jericho reels Joe in. But Joe is too bulky to back suplex! Joe CLUBS Jericho, fires off KNEE after KNEE, then he runs, only for Jericho to kick low! Jericho runs, but into a scoop! Joe POWERBOMBS Jericho onto the horseshoes! Jericho writhes, Joe runs to SENTON! The fans lose their minds, Joe covers, TWO!! Jericho survives, Joe drags Jericho up and KICKS him around!

Joe KICKS and KICKS, but Jericho blocks to LOW BLOW! Because No Disqualifications means who cares about respect, right? Jericho then gets the legs, and he turns Joe over for the WALLS OF JERICHO! Joe endures, the fans rally up, and Dynamite goes picture in picture!

Joe reaches out, but Jericho sits deep on the hold. Joe still fights around, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! But again, a Street Fight means No Disqualifications, so Jericho doesn’t have to let go! Jericho drags Joe back from ropes and he sits deep again! Joe still endures, still claws around, but Jericho still keeps him down. Joe grits his teeth, the fans rally, and Joe pushes up! Dynamite returns to single picture as Joe powers his way to turn over, and he CLOCKS Jericho with a horseshoe! Jericho falls back, Joe is free, and both men slowly rise. Jericho snarls and tells Joe to get up. Joe does, and he JABS! JABS! JABS! And then ROLLING ELBOW!

Joe goes to the outside, Jericho goes to the apron, and Jericho LEAPS, but Joe just walks away! Jericho SMACKS off the steel steps! The fans fire up as Joe drags Jericho up to TOSS over railing! The fans fire up more as now they’re fighting in the crowd! Joe drags Jericho up the bleachers, HAMMERS away on him, and then Joe brings Jericho back around to SMACK him off the barriers! Those are hockey boards! Joe fires hands, then a fan lends him some popcorn! Joe SMASHES Jericho with the popcorn!

This fight now goes backstage and Joe keeps Jericho moving with fast hands! Joe pulls Jericho along by his hair, sends him into spare railing, then CHOPS him! And ROCKS him! We’re by catering and Joe ROCKS Jericho! Jericho SPLASHES Joe with coffee! And it was piping hot! JUDAS- NO, Joe catches Jericho to a COQUINA CLUTCH! Joe brings Jericho to his knees, but NOW Big Bill appears! And The Redwood SMACKS Joe with a chair! Joe lets Jericho go and Bill SMACKS Joe off the back of a forklift! Then Keith returns and the Branches beat down on Joe! Jericho says stand Joe up! They do as told, and Jericho takes off his own belt.

Jericho wraps his fist in the leather, has the buckle prepared, and he thanks Martha Hart for giving him the belt! BELT BUCKLE KNUCKLE DUSTER!! Joe gets hit right in the head, and then Bill CHOKE SLAMS Joe onto the pallet! Bill HAMMERS away on Joe, then Jericho gets in the seat of the forklift! Staff tells Jericho no but Keith THROWS them aside! Jericho powers up the forklift, and he is bringing Joe around. Jericho says, “Hi, guys~!” Jericho RUNS JOE THROUGH A WALL!!! Bill is laughing while staff, refs, Doc Sampson and even Colt Cabana run over! Cabana asks what the hell Jericho is doing! Doc Sampson calls it! Joe is OUT, Jericho wins!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by stoppage

The Learning Tree grins, and asks how “Samoa Joke” feels now. If this is what Jericho is willing to do to spread his “teachings” to AEW, what won’t he do #ForTheWorld?

 

AEW returns and…

The medical team has Samoa Joe on a stretcher and is now getting him inside an ambulance. Sampson tells Joe that they’ve got him. Joe is conscious, but what is his condition after Jericho- Wait, what are Jericho and his sidekicks even doing here? Jericho smiles and waves, “Bye, Joe. Bye bye. Thanks.” Has the Learning Tree finally snapped?

The Bastard breaks The Protostar and he has all the Global Glory! Pac gets the mic, and he says, “Safe to say, things have not been going well for me recently. Since returning to AEW in March, I have made many bold promises. And I have suffered many humiliating failures. Now I don’t know what I’m gonna do next, ya see. But what i do know is this: It’s All In Season! And The Bastard will not be denied my Wembley moment! I can promise you that. So let tonight’s victory stand as a line in the sand…! The Bastard will be back.” Pac has put Ospreay and MJF on notice, will it be The Aerial Assassin or The Wolf of Wrestling that faces him next?

 

AEW goes backstage with Renee Paquette.

She is on her way to interview Bryan Danielson, who has won the Men’s Owen Hart Tournament to move on to Wembley. But then Hangman Page pushes past her and she tries to get his attention. She has to shout at him, and asks if she could get just a little bit of respect around here, it’d be appreciated. Hangman knocks on a door without a word to Renee. Renee leaves, and the person that opens the door is Okada. Okada asks if he can help Hangman. Hangman wants to go inside, but Okada stops him, and asks again, “Can I help you?” The Bucks then walk up and say it is all okay. But fancy seeing Hangman here. Anything they can do for him?

Hangman says he’ll do it. Hangman then leaves, and Okada asks if The Bucks are okay. Now they are! They just got their fifth man! Will The Black Hat help The Elite win Blood & Guts against Team AEW?

 

Mercedes Mone is here!

Calgary is torn about The CEO walking out here, wearing the TBS Championship but holding the NJPW Strong Women’s Championship on her shoulder. She celebrated her Forbidden Door victory last week, but it seems the Two Belt Boss needs double the fun. She struts her way to the ring, security ready at all corners, and there’s already a table and a bottle waiting for her. Mone puts her NJPW Strong belt on the stand, then picks up the mic. “Calgaryyyy~! Please say hello to your C E O!”T he fans are still torn but Mone is so honored to be here to celebrate her historic double championship victory.

And huge shoutout to her boys, The EVPs, Matthew & Nicholas Jackson, for the extra security. Because if there’s one thing for sure, Mone will NOT be interrupted. Before we start, Mone wants to set the record straight about the past, present and future. Because these two titles and everyone here knows, she is the past, present AND future! Mone is the best their was, the best there is, and the best there ever will be! The fans boo her stealing the Hitman’s line. Then Mone says as far as Britt Baker goes, she better wake up from her little fantasy about facing Mone at All In. That is NOT going to happen.

Because if Britt did face Mone in the ring, Mone would leave her with way more than a couple herniated disks. She would leave Britt for dead! So everyone, it is time to grab your glasses, pour a little whiskey, and raise a toast to the Greatest of All Time, the History Maker, the Star Marker, the- D M D! The fans fire up but Mone is pissed that Britt is daring to interrupt after all! Mone tells security to get her, but Britt DECKS the first guy! And SUPERKICKS the second! Mone panics as Britt just pushes past the rest! Mone grabs her belts and runs as best she can in heels! Mone says this was HER moment, but now she knows how it feels!

Britt smiles but Mone says there will be a price to pay. Will nothing stop the DMD from going after the CEO over both the TBS and NJPW Strong titles?

 

Brandon Cutler’s been attacked backstage!

And his face has been painted with a very familiar half-skull! That’s because it’s DARBY ALLIN who got him! Cutler begs for mercy but Darby just rains down more fists! Darby then gets in the camera to ask Jack Perry, “What’s that ish you say? We all have to make sacrifices, huh? Brandon just made his. Elite, you really thought this was over? Dynamite 250, we’re just getting started.” The Relentless One leaves, but will he get his payback from Double Or Nothing?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite 250!

The Rainmaker heard The Realest call him out, and now it is official! Champion VS Champion, Okada VS Swerve! Will Okada do what Ospreay could not and take down the AEW World Champion?

My Thoughts:

Now this was an awesome episode of Dynamite. Only four matches because these were the only four we needed, as well as great promos, all with story build. Opening with Ospreay and MJF having their promos was the smart move, and it sets up a great title match for next week. I did not realize we’d already gotten to 250 but I suppose after five years, we were gonna get there. And Ospreay VS MJF is going to be great stuff, and I can’t really be sure who wins. The Global Glory Fatal 4 was awesome stuff, and naturally the winner is now a contender to the International Championship. Pac winning out is great, and I’d love if it was Pac VS Ospreay. Two British wrestlers fighting it out, the crowd would eat that up.

That Street Fight was great stuff. I appreciate Jericho bringing out location appropriate weapons in the black bag. And given this is Calgary Stampede, aka a rodeo, horseshoes was perfect. But of course Morrissey & Keith got involved, especially once things went backstage. No Hook, apparently Shibata wasn’t able/allowed to be there, and same for Taz I think, so Joe was all alone. I NEVER would’ve imagined Jericho driving a forklift through a wall to win a match, but here we are. I feel like this just helps Joe and Hook pull off that “miraculous return” in time to give us a huge Six Man Tag for All In.

Very good promo stuff from Mercedes Mone and Britt Baker, mostly because they had Britt run out there to run Mone off. Mone continues to embrace being a Heel that is tangentially connected to The Elite. And while Mone keeps saying no, Britt is going to keep going after her, and I think Tony Khan or Kenny Omega is gonna use their authority to make it official. It probably will be for both belts, and I’m pretty sure Mone retains. She can cheat to do it so that builds Heel heat while not really hurting Britt Baker’s return. Britt can even demand and get a rematch at All Out, which isn’t even two weeks after All In.

Another great music video from Acclaimed but I feel like they need to start putting subtitles, I could not be sure what Caster was saying at some points because he’s just that clever. But obviously, this is all building to A) tag title match at All In and B) Acclaimed wanting to be in on Blood & Guts. For that matter, Darby Allin returning and calling Jack Perry out, that itself is a two-for-one build. Perry VS Allin for the TNT Championship can be a match for All In, and Allin can be the fifth man for Team AEW. Swerve of course wanted to be the team leader for Team AEW, that’s good continuity from before. And then with Hangman losing out on the Owen Hart Cup, and hearing Swerve is part of Blood & Guts, great move for that to convince him to side with The Elite.

Speaking of which, what an awesome Men’s Owen Hart Cup match. With how Swerve is champ, it was really surprising that Hangman lost, but they did such a good job pulling it off. Bryan got bloodied, his neck was bothering him since minute one, and yet he pulls out the win with some help from Jeff Jarrett. Swerve VS Bryan is going to be awesome stuff, and Bryan has been saying he wants to retire world champion, so this could be a make or break moment for that. Then the Women’s Owen Hart Cup was equally amazing. The ring gear being tributes to both Bret & Owen was good stuff, and then to protect Willow’s loss, Stoke & Kris got involved to perhaps set up that final grudge match.

And that ending moment… Way back when she first buddied up to Toni, I sensed Mariah was going to pull something like this. It felt like she was being disingenuous on some level, and I thought it was going to be sooner, because AEW doesn’t always handle pacing in stories well, especially in women’s division story. But just as I thought they weren’t going to do it after Mariah, Mina & Storm all celebrated at Forbidden Door, they have Mariah just absolutely shock everyone. Especially with how bloody she made Storm. This immediately cranks the heat up all the way to the max, and even as soon as Collision on Saturday, we could get the “Why Mariah Why” promo for the explanation.

My Score: 9/10
