Backstage interview with the Hardy Boyz.

Lexi Nair says breaking news! Jeff Hardy has been medically cleared, he can compete tonight! He feels good, and the adrenaline from the fans- The Young Bucks barge in and has Lexi back off. They’re praying for Jeff, he scared them. What is he thinking? He’s been doing this for thirty years, he can’t be climbing ladders and do this stuff anymore. They need to think about their families. Jeff should just take the night off. If he doesn’t, he’s just a shell of his former self and Adam Cole will kick his ass. The Hardys tell the Bucks can stop with the #ChristianAF BS! Don’t worry about Jeff, he’ll be fine. He’s a legit Hardy, not a cosplayer like the Bucks.

The wimpy, whiny bitches, Matt & Nick, will never be tougher or better than them. And if the Bucks interfere, Cole won’t be the only member of the Undisputed Elite getting their asses whipped! The Bucks still wish Hardy luck, but will they listen to Matt Hardy’s warning?

 

CM Punk heads to commentary!

He is fired up and ready to watch this next match, since it involves the AEW World Champion.

Hangman Page VS Konosuke Takeshita!

The Cowboy is taking on the Best in the World at Double or Nothing, but tonight, he’ll focus on The Future! Will Konosuke get himself a golden ticket? Or will we see some #CowboySh*t go down in H Town?

Punk raises his hands, but Hangman raises the belt, and the two get face to face. Fans are thunderous as the two circle each other, and then Hangman storms past Punk. Will these two have a drag down, knockout fight in Vegas?

 

Fuego Del Sol calls out the House of Black.

He knows what Malakai and his minions are thinking. They’re thinking Fuego just twists his finger because of his tornado DDT. No! He twists his finger in the air because he’s a little twisted inside. Hell, he must be if he’s still calling them out! They’ve made his life hell but Fuego was made to walk through fire! Now he evens the odds, with the Dark Order! This Friday on Rampage, they have the House of Black’s number! In fact, the odds are in their favor. You might say, they’re Ten to One. But will Fuego, Evil Uno and Preston Vance be able to do what no one has done and tear down the House of Black?

 

Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland VS The Workhorsemen!

The Limitless One is in his home state, and he’s welcoming everyone in Houston to Swerve’s House! But will these two keep their tag team momentum going? Or will JD Drake & Anthony Henry find a way not to bask in their glory?

The teams sort out, Keith starts against JD and fans sing, “OH~ Bask in His Glory~!” Keith conducts the singing but JD shoves him! JD mocks the conducting, so Keith GRIZZLY MAGNUMS! JD somehow stays on his feet but Keith wrenches an arm and wristlocks. Keith tags Swerve, fans chant, “Whose House?” “Swerve’s House!” Swerve throws a body shot and wrenches the arm, but JD CHOPS him! Tag to Henry, and he slides in after a leg. Swerve traps Henry’s arm, wrenches, but Henry KICKS! And KICKS!

Henry waistlocks but Swerve back shim into a corner. The ref counts, Swerve lets off but then SOBATS! Swerve runs in to uppercut, then he snapmares Henry down for the FALLING UPPERCUT! Swerve keeps moving, SOMERSAULT COMPLETE SHOT! JD gets in to back suplex but Swerve lands on his feet. Swerve CHOPS, JD swings but misses! Tag to Keith, Swerve goes Matrix and Keith CROSSBODIES! Henry BOOTS Swerve, but Keith dodges the crossbody to POUNCE! Henry flounders up, Keith brings him in and Swerve goes up! SPIRIT STOMPS!! Cover, Keith & Swerve win!

Winners: Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland, by pinfall

That #FallFromGlory was all Keith & Swerve needed to win! Fans sing, “OH~ Bask in His Glory~!” as Keith gets the mic. Keith says, “My state, I have some wonderful news! It turns out with that victory, the Realest, Swerve Strickland, and yours truly, THE LIMITLESS Keith Lee, have now become a top five ranked tag team.” But here comes Team Taz! The #AbsolutePowerhouses, Will Hobbs & Ricky Starks are here, and Starks says, “Well, well, well. That’s enough talking from you, Rex from Toy Story.” But those two are two of the most selfish jabronies! They think they deserve a shot when Team Taz is right here is insane!

Not only did Starks beat Jungle Boy, but he also beat Swerve’s ass, too! Swerve says Starks is dressed like a bar of soap with a pearl necklace on. Second, this is Houston, Texas. There is Southern hospitality. What did Starks’ mama teach him? But wait, here come the AEW World Tag Team Champions, and Christian Cage! Christian says Ricky thinks he’s smart, but too bad he’s not smart enough to know when to shut up! Instead, he’s walking around with his chest puffed out, dressed like he’s about to go golfing with Christian’s grandfather, and the title on his shoulder. Christian gets it, Starks thinks he’s ready for a real championship.

Now both these teams are worthy, but they’re not the best. Jurassic Express is the best! But they’ll go outside the box and challenge both teams! It’ll be a TRIPLE THREAT for the AEW World Tag Team Champions… AT DOUBLE OR NOTHING! Fans like the sound of that! And since we’re going outside the box, here’s another idea. Starks’ stupid look makes Christian want JB to get the win back. And a win over the guy who cost him that match! So Starks VS Swerve VS Jungle Boy, NEXT WEEK ON DYNAMITE! Fans also like how that sounds! Will that Triple Threat Singles be a great preview of the Triple Threat Tag we’re getting?

 

Tony Schiavone interviews Kris Statlander and Red Velvet backstage.

These former friends face off in the Owen Hart, and Velvet says they saved each other and all in the past. But that ship has sailed. Things are different now and Velvet wants to win the whole damn thing. So Kris better bring everything, because Velvet will, “The Baddie way.” Yeah, they’ve both changed, clearly. Kris wasn’t in this to begin with but she is taking the opportunity to the top. There is nothing personal, it is just business. And speaking of business, Jade Cargill walks in and says it is hilarious that Velvet made “alien girl” think they were ever friends. Velvet needed a real leader, in Jade. And Tony, cut the sh*t. Will The Chef cook Kris and head for the Cup?

 

MJF heads to the ring!

He has Shawn Spears with him, as always, and Spears has the leather strap! MJF has his music cut short, Houston boos, but MJF says he is clearly no longer in Long Island. He is in Houston, Te- then he gags. He’ll get it, he’ll get it! Sorry. He is in Houston- Huuuurr. HOUSTON TEXAS. There. And to be honest, everything IS bigger in Texas, because he’s seeing a bunch of dumb, grotesque, FAT hicks! Fans call him an A-Hole but MJF wonders if they mean him or the man he’s about to whip. MJF explains this to Wardlow: If Wardlow lays one finger during these lashes, if he retaliates, he doesn’t get his match with MJF at Double or Nothing, and he never signs with AEW.

Fans tell MJF to STFU but MJF keeps talking. He says that even if Wardlow retaliates, he can keep his job with MJF, so that he can keep shining MJF’s shoes. Because MJF is better than you, and you know it! Now send out the pig! Garage doors open in the back, and a handcuffed Wardlow is escorted into the building by security. And despite what is coming, Wardlow is not afraid. Fans chant his name and cheer him on, and Wardlow gets in the ring. MJF SPITS on Wardlow, but Wardlow just smirks. Wardlow stands at the center of the ring, and MJF LASHES him already. But Wardlow just laughs it off! Apparently that didn’t hurt.

MJF throws off his jacket and decides to LASH again. Still nothing. MJF gets serious and throws off his shirt, fans taunt him for how long that took, and then MJF winds up to LASH Wardlow again. And again and again and again! Was that already 10? Spears keeps MJF back as MJF shouts, “I HATE YOU!” Spears calms MJF down and MJF lets Spears try. Spears winds up and LASHES! Nope, still nothing. Somehow that’s only the eighth. Spears LASHES him again, and now it stings. MJF gets in Wardlow’s face but Wardlow has him back off. Just one last shot. Fans chant Wardlow’s name, and MJF gets mad.

MJF winds up and LOW BLOWS! Then he LASHES past ten!! Spears and MJF mug Wardlow, fans boo, and they CHOKE Wardlow! MJF gets the Dynamite Diamond Ring, and he DECKS Wardlow with it! Fans boo as MJF tears off his A-shirt. Then MJF tells Spears to finish this. Spears gets Wardlow up, fireman’s carries, and runs for the C4!! Cover, MJF counts it, and MJF says Spears wins! Spears flexes like he did something, and MJF says this is Wardlow’s fate! Wardlow ain’t making it to the PPV! MJF steps on Wardlow’s neck, but will Wardlow take all his anger out on The Chair Man inside the cage?

 

Roppongi Vice speaks.

Trent says it’s been a weird past few months, but RPG Vice is back together full-time! And they’re going to make a statement. And what better way than to go after something that has eluded them for so long: The ROH World Tag Team Championships! Rocky says that’s just step one. Step two: the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships! And step three: The AEW World Tag Team Championships! So all the fighting champs out there better be ready. RPG Vice VS FTR, ROH World Tag Team Championships! All FTR has to do is accept. They know Bret would.

 

Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament Opening Round: Kyle O’Reilly VS Rey Fenix w/ Death Triangle!

Samoa Joe made it through the joker, and now he awaits in the semifinals! Will reDRagon’s #KillerKyle take down the Firebird? Or will Fenix say #ANIMO to taking on the Samoan Submission Machine?

The bell rings and Kyle circles with Fenix. Fans fire up, and Kyle drops to bait Fenix. Fenix stomps but misses, Kyle drags Fenix down and has a headlock.

Kyle KICKS Fenix against railing, follows him around the way, then KICKS him into a taking a seat!

Fans fire up and Kyle runs in, to DROPKICK Fenix against railing! Kyle drags Fenix up to toss him into the ring, and he grabs at the bad arm. Fenix endures as Kyle hammerlocks, and Fenix gets the ROPEBREAK! Kyle KNEES Fenix in the arm as he lets off, then paces around. Kyle runs back in to KNEE Fenix against ropes! Kyle gets the bad arm, pulls the elbow pad away, then KICKS Fenix down! And KICKS him again! Kyle taunts Fenix, kicks at him, but Fenix gets up to CHOP! Kyle KNEES Fenix down, taunts him more, and then cartwheels just to KICK Fenix in the back! Dynamite returns to single picture as Fenix CHOPS again!

The Blackpool Combat Club heads to the ring!

Bryan Danielson and William Regal enter together from the stage, and of course Jon Moxley leads Eddie Kingston, Santana & Ortiz through the crowd! And then, the Jericho Appreciation Society makes their entrance. Houston sings Judas for “The Wizard,” but then Angelo Parker has them stop! And no pyro, either! No sing-along, no pyro! Jericho takes the mic and says when fans want to sing, they’re excited. But meanwhile, last week, when the JAS was attacked by this gang of thugs, the fans cheered! Jericho says he started thinking: “Who could’ve put together this violent attack between all of these heathens?” It’s of course his old nemesis, Mr. William Regal!

Fans chant for Regal and Santana shakes Regal’s hand, even. Jericho says it’s been awhile. Good to see him. Honestly, thought he’d be dead by now. It’s amazing that after all the abuse Regal put himself through, he still has a working brain, sorta. Fans call Jericho an A-Hole, but Jericho says, “Talk about wasted potential.” All his wrestling skill and character, eh could’ve been one of the Greatest of All Time, just like Jericho. He should’ve been a world class champion ten times over, but instead ended up a world class addict. Regal has been fired from every company he’s ever worked for, and then weaseled his way into AEW on the coattails of his proteges.

Jericho says what a collection! Santana & Ortiz, who are too stupid that everything they had was cuz of Jericho. There’s Eddie Kingston, who fans are chanting for, and Jericho says he’s too stupid to stay home and take care of his family and his wife. Once again, if he needs any pointers, just have her give Jericho a call. And then there’s Bryan Danielson. “YES! YES! YES!” Possibly the greatest wrestler in the world today, yet nothing more than a squeaky clean nerd. Bryan never had a drink in his life, huh? Well stick with that lot long enough, and you’ll get disco biscuits and whiskey shoved down your throat until you have to join “the program” with Moxley!

“It’s a royal flush of losers right here! No wonder Moxley and Regal hang out so much, they’re birds of a feather.” Regal, Jericho’s advice is to go home, stay out of the JAS’s business, because otherwise he gets a fireball in his face, because Jericho is a wizard! Or… Maybe Jericho will just piss in Regal’s tea again. Regal finally speaks up. “Since 1997 when I first met you, I’ve had to listen to you with that whining, vile, pathetic, trap snapping voice of yours. And the only thing that could make me more sick to my stomach are the screams from a burning orphanage, so please be quiet.”

Regal says Jericho is right, he hit a few truths about the past. But there’s one thing these last 21 years that has kept Regal going through thick and thin: for every single time Regal was on a show with Jericho, and that’s hundreds of times, or even when Regal wasn’t wrestling Jericho, whenever Jericho was in the ring, Regal would go to his locker room and open Jericho’s bag to take out the toiletries and unzip it. Regal would take out the toothbrush and stick it right up his bum. Daniel Garcia says that is disgusting! How could Regal ever do that to somebody? “Well, actually, flower, I did it to yours last week.” WHAT?!

Jericho takes the mic back and has to get a certain taste out of his mouth. It’s obvious what they all want! They want a fight, right? It just so happens that at Double or Nothing, one of the greatest matches Jericho ever invented in AEW, THE ACE of AEW… Double or Nothing has been synonymous with this match type! The JAS challenges the BCC to the STADIUM- Moxley speaks up to say no. He ain’t doing that sh*t. They’re not getting sucked into the sports entertainment vortex. Stadium Stampede was a different time, and a different place. This situation calls for… JAS getting their asses kicked live and in living color in front of an arena full of screaming fans!

So here’s what happens at Double or Nothing: the five douchebags of JAS VS the five of Regal’s crew, gang warfare in anything goes, glorious violence until the JAS is all bleeding like stuck pigs! Fans like the sound of that. Moxley says call it whatever you want! Anarchy in the Arena! Pro-Wrestling VS Sports Entertainment! The beautiful art of what they love VS “a bunch of stupid bullsh*t!” Moxley hands the mic to Eddie and Jericho says if they want anarchy, fine! But JAS is a well-oiled machine. BCC has issues! In fact, the last time Moxley and Santana were in the ring together, they were trying to stab each other’s eyes out! The GOOD Eye for an Eye match!

And Danielson and Eddie have been after each other all year? What did Bryan say about Eddie? Matt Menard reminds us that Bryan called Eddie “lazy!” And what did Eddie say in return? That Bryan was a “judgmental prick!” Eddie says yes, he is. But let’s just hurry this up. Why wait for the PPV? Who cares about the fans or buys or ratings! Let’s just fight, bitch! Fans fire up for that one, and Hager is ready to go. But Jericho says nope. Eddie says they’ll just go after them then! But Bryan stands in Eddie’s way? Even Moxley is a bit surprised. Eddie shoves Bryan but Bryan shoves Eddie! Is Jericho right about the dysfunction in this destructive group?

 

Matt Sydal and Dante Martin speak.

Sydal wants to make sure Dante is seeing this. The BCC can’t get along with anyone because they only care about violence. And while they’re caught up with those sports entertainers, Dante can see it in their eyes. They just want to fight. So that is what these two will give them! But a fight with the two highest high-fliers in AEW is not something they’re ready for. And no one has to wait for Double or Nothing! They’ll do this on Rampage! Sydal & Dante just called out any two members of the BCC, but will they be the ones regretting this?

 

Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Opening Round: Britt Baker w/ Jamie Hayter & Rebel VS ???

We saw one joker be dealt with, and now the Doctor deals with the other! Just who is taking on Britt Baker, DMD? It’s… MAKI ITOH!! The Cutest in the World is back in AEW, but will she be dance her way to the next round? Or will the Doctor be in the semifinals?

The bell rings and Maki is happy to see her tag partner, and vice versa. They hug, and then Britt asks Maki for a favor. Maki says of course, and she drops down!? Maki’s gonna let Britt win?! Nope, nevermind, Maki drags Britt into a cradle! TWO!! Maki almost had Britt and Britt is pissed! Britt ROCKS Maki with a forearm, and Maki cries…? Britt is confused, but then Maki stomps Britt’s foot! Maki does a little dance while she grinds Britt’s toes, then she flips Britt off. Britt slaps the finger away, swings on Maki but Maki dodges to run, and run Britt over! Maki roars, fires up, and runs, KOKESHI MISSES!

Britt hurries to get Maki’s arms! Rings of Saturn, but Maki gets a cover, TWO! Fans duel, Britt fires off forearms, and whips. Maki reverses but Britt SLINGBLADES! Cover, TWO! Britt rains down fists on Maki while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Britt mocks the V for victory then bumps Maki off buckles. Britt CHOKES Maki, the ref counts, and Britt lets off, to then ROCK Maki with a forearm! Britt sweeps the legs and digs her boot into Maki. The ref counts, Britt lets off, then she soaks up the cheers and jeers. Britt stomps Maki more, drags her from the corner, and she covers, TWO! Maki gets to ropes and scowls but Britt CHOKES her! The ref counts, Britt steps off, but Maki is getting mad! Britt brings Maki up to CHOKER her again! Britt makes Maki smile since she is the joker, after all. The ref counts, Britt lets off with a forearm, then swaggers about.

Britt brings Maki around, throws more forearms, then whips to LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Britt is annoyed but she clamps onto Maki with a seated cobra twist. Maki endures, fights, but Britt CLUBS her down. Maki still endures the hold and fans rally up. Maki fights up to her feet, throws body shots, but Britt ROCKS Maki with a forearm. Maki staggers and cries again, but Britt mocks her. Britt pie faces Maki so Maki scowls. Maki pie faces back, Britt drags Maki up and into underhooks. Dynamite returns to single picture as Britt his the BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Britt covers, TWO! Britt drags Maki up, but Maki snap suplexes first!

Fans fire up and Britt gets up to kick Maki down. Britt bumps Maki off buckles, throws more forearms, and she brings out the glove! Britt grins as she puts the glove on, then spells out “D M D!” Britt gets Maki up, bumps her off buckles again, but Maki’s hard head doesn’t feel it. Maki grins and shakes her head, but Britt bumps her off buckles again. Maki fires up and fans fire up! Maki headbutts the buckle to make a point! Britt isn’t sure what to do, Maki HEADBUTTS her! Fans fire up and Maki brings Britt in, TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO! Maki hurries to get Britt into the center and stomps her.

Fans fire up, Maki runs, but she fakes Britt out to KOKESHI! Cover, TWO! Britt hurries to SUPERKICK Maki down! Britt clamps on with RINGS OF SATURN! And then, she flips Maki off before the LOCKJAW! Maki taps, Britt wins!

Winner: Britt Baker, by submission (advances to the semifinals)

But before Britt can celebrate, here comes Toni Storm! The Lightning From Down Under stares down her next opponent and Britt mocks the rock ‘n’ roll, but will Britt be the one crying when it’s #ToniTime?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring!

He reminds us that it’ll be Britt VS Storm in the Women’s Owen Hart Cup semifinals, and it’ll be Samoa Joe VS Kyle O’Reilly in one of the Men’s Owen Hart Cup semifinals! And it’ll be a celebration of THREE YEARS of AEW at Double or Nothing in Las Vegas! But then out walks Serena Deeb! She apologizes for interrupting but she had to come out here to say she is so sick of hearing Tony Schiavone talk! What? Deeb heard what he said in the vignette. He said she couldn’t beat Thunder Rosa at Double or Nothing! Well, he simply predicted Rosa winning the match. Deeb can win against Rosa- Well that’s not what he said.

So congrats, Tony! After all your years in the business, in one interview, you made yourself a complete idiot! And speaking of idiots, Deeb remembers Dustin Rhodes saying his piece. Deeb knows Dustin is in the back and invites him to come out. Yep, here he comes! Fans cheer for The Natural as he goes to the ring. Dustin doesn’t get why Deeb’s doing this, but Deeb says of course Texas cheers Dustin. He’s a failure, just like all their sports teams! Fans boo Deeb and Deeb tells Dustin that she heard him be as much of an idiot as Schiavone. Hell, seems like JR is the only one with brains around here!

That cute little video of Dustin and his teacher’s pet, “I’m her coach, I’m her mentor~.” Deeb used to respect Dustin. She knows what he had to do to persevere, and he knows what she had to do. The dues she had to pay to make wrestling good for women today! The trials and tribulations she had to endure during “that” era! And still no respect. She put breast implants into her body just to satisfy some old perverts! She shaved her head just to show how bad she wanted this! So tell her, face to face, why did Dustin say Deeb can’t beat Rosa? No answer? Y’know why he can’t answer? Because Dustin doesn’t have the BALLS to!

When Deeb does beat Rosa to become AEW Women’s World Champion, Dustin will respect her! But speaking of, here comes Rosa! Deeb SLAPS Dustin, then eggs Rosa on! Dustin holds Rosa back! Rosa elbows Dustin away! She realizes what she did and apologizes, but Deeb gets the belt! BELT SHOT on Rosa!! Deeb smirks and leaves, belt in hand! The Wolf of Wrestling steals Rosa’s title tonight, but will she rightfully own it after Double or Nothing?

 

Owen Hart Foundation Men’s Tournament Semifinal: Adam Cole VS Jeff Hardy w/ Matt Hardy!

The Undisputed Elite has two horses in the race, and while Kyle VS Joe is set for the second semifinal, we see the first one happen here tonight! Will the Panama City Playboy head to Las Vegas? Or will he be rendered OBSOLETE by the Charismatic Enigma?

But wait! Cole attacks Jeff during his entrance! Cole stomps Jeff on the ramp, then whips him into the ring! The ref reprimands, Matt is stunned, but Cole sets up on the ramp for “ADAM COLE BAYBAY!” Cole gets in, but Hardy kicks him low! The bell rings, Jeff bumps Cole off buckles, scoops and SLAMS him, then goes up the corner! Jeff aims but Cole bails out. So Jeff goes to the apron and LEAPS onto Cole! Fans fire up with “DELETE! DELETE!” as Jeff puts Cole in. Cole bails out, Jeff pursues but Cole kicks low. Cole RAMS Jeff into the steps, then stares Matt down. Cole goes back for Jeff and puts him in the ring.

Fans rally, Cole drags Jeff up and reels him in, BACKSTABBER! Cole watches Jeff stir while fans rally up. Cole sits Jeff up, brings him around and bumps him off buckles as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cole stomps a mudhole into Jeff, digs his boots in, but lets off as the ref counts. Cole takes a bow then goes back for Jeff. Cole wrenches and whips Jeff corner to corner, and Jeff bounces off buckles hard! Cole smirks and brings Jeff up to CHOKE him on the rope! The ref counts, Cole lets off, and Jeff sputters to a corner. Cole drags Jeff up, turns him, and hits a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Jeff is still in this and Cole is annoyed, but he soaks up the cheers and jeers. Cole clamps on a chinlock to grind Jeff down but Jeff endures. Jeff fights up and throws body shots, but Cole throws him down by his hair!

The ref reprimands, Cole picks Jeff’s hair off his fingers, then goes back to drag Jeff up and JAM him in the back with a knee. Cole has the arms for a motorcycle stretch! Jeff endures, fans rally up, and Jeff fights to his feet. Cole knees low, DECKS Jeff with a forearm, then brings Jeff back up to bump off buckles! Jeff flounders against ropes, Cole whips him to CLOBBER him with an elbow! Cole smirks and pretends to check a watch. Cole taunts Jeff and throws more forearms. Dynamite returns to single picture as Jeff hits back! Jeff dodges the haymaker to CLUB Cole and hit a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Leg Trap Cradle, TWO!!

Fans rally and Matt rallies the fans with “DELETE! DELETE!” Cole throws a haymaker but Jeff gives it back. Cole throws a forearm, Jeff throws a haymaker. Jeff gets the edge but Cole knees low! Cole blocks the first kick but not the SPIN BACK KICK! But Cole PELES! Jeff drops but Cole drags him back up, only for Jeff to suplex and GOURD BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Cole is still in this but Jeff grits his teeth. Fans rally, Jeff has Cole in a corner, and Jeff whips. Cole reverses then runs in, but Jeff elbows him away! Jeff goes up, WHISPER IN THE WIND SUPERKICK!! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Cole didn’t get all of Jeff and that helps Jeff survive!

Fans rally, Cole takes down the kneepad and runs, but Jeff ducks! Jeff kicks for the STUNNER OF FATE! Then the INVERTED TWIST OF FATE! Jeff throws off the shirt and goes up top! Fans are thunderous and Jeff takes aim, SWANTON BOMB FLOPS as Cole moves! THE BOOM!! Cover, Cole wins!!

Winner: Adam Cole, by pinfall (advances to the finals)

And now we have one half of the finals! Cole gloats, but Matt gets in to make sure he doesn’t add on. Cole stays back, but here come the Young Bucks! The Hardys turn around in time before they can set up, but then Cole CLOBBERS the Hardys from behind! Fans boo, but the Bucks give Matt the B T E TRIGGER!! They also stomp away on Jeff! But here comes Darby and STIIIIING! Darby TACKLES Nick, Matt goes after him and they brawl! Sting slowly approaches, and he goes after Matt and Cole! The Undisputed Elite can’t stay up, but here comes Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly! Fish KNEES Darby, then feeds him to Kyle for TOTAL ANNIHILATION!

Sting is still after Cole but reDRagon gets in! Sting goes after them with big haymakers, and then he fires off on Cole! Kyle SMACKS Sting with a chair! But it does nothing!! Fans are thunderous as Sting takes the chair from Kyle to SMACK back with it! But then the Bucks DOUBLE SUPERKICK SANDWICH Sting down!! Cole gets the chair, he puts it around Sting’s leg, and fans boo as the rest of the Undisputed Elite pushes the Hardys and Darby out! KING KONG KNEE DROP on the leg!!! Fish mocks Sting’s pain, and Cole even has another chair! But AEW’s out of time! Quick, check Twitter!

The Undisputed Elite continues the beat down, Kyle stomping Darby at the ropes! They then leave all four men behind to go up the ramp and to the stage for the group pose. They may be standing tall now, but will the Men’s Owen Hart Cup still be Undisputed?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite with almost all Owen Hart tournament matches. I was a little surprised Samoa Joe’s match opened the night, and what a great surprise that it’s “Johnny Elite” as the men’s joker. Also a little surprised Joe won when Lethal, Sonjay & Singh are still after him. But I also like that Best Friends/Roppongi Vice run them off, still wondering if we get a Six Man Tag of those guys before Joe and Lethal fight for the ROH World TV title. RPG Vice calling out a lot of tag team champions was cool, too, I would love of a big series of tag title matches between Double or Nothing and Forbidden Door in June. This could be exactly how FTR gets themselves to being TRIPLE Tag Champions.

And speaking of tag titles, a Triple Threat is a great move to accelerate things between Keith & Swerve, Team Taz and Jurassic Express. It is also a way that a team can win and get the belts off Jurassic Express without actually pinning Jurassic Express. If there’s a time for Christian to break off from Jurassic Express, it’d be after a big Triple Threat loss at Double or Nothing. The Triple Threat of JB VS Starks VS Swerve is going to be really telling towards the tag match. If JB wins, it basically foreshadows one of the other teams taking those belts. Fuego calling out House of Black and teaming with The Dark Order is a good move, and I almost hope Fuego officially joins Dark Order since Dark Order isn’t really interacting with Hangman anymore.

Hangman VS Konosuke was an awesome match, and Punk was good on commentary half complimenting and half insulting Hangman. Hangman of course gets the win for momentum, and he has a pretty great stare down with Punk. Still anyone’s guess who wins at Double or Nothing, but it’d be an interesting next phase for Hangman if he has to chase again. The lashing of Wardlow segment wasn’t quite as dramatic as I expected, though Wardlow basically has Goldberg entrance. But it was hilarious how Wardlow was no selling the lashing and it was pissing MJF off. I didn’t think MJF would kick Wardlow in the balls, but should’ve expected it. This only guarantees Wardlow beats Spears into a puddle next week despite MJF being special referee.

Britt VS Maki was great stuff, Maki is a great character. But I figured Britt would win, she’s a top star in AEW and her taking on Storm was definitely going to happen. Statlander, Velvet and the Baddies had a good promo segment together, Statlander VS Velvet could go either way, but I’m leaning towards Velvet having help from The Baddies. Kyle O’Reilly VS Rey Fenix was match of the NIGHT! Maybe even match of the week and match of the month. Kyle winning makes sense to give Undisputed Elite another contender, and maybe in the semifinals, Joe gets truly screwed over by Lethal so Kyle can advance. Cole had a great match with Jeff Hardy in the main event, and of course he won. We could still end up with Cole VS Kyle in the finals, which would be awesome for many reasons.

Deeb had a great promo segment with Schiavone and Dustin, and she made some strong points in regards to the WWE’s Diva Era and the BS that went on then. And sadly, it seems like that BS is coming back, if you look at how things are in NXT 2.0 and the WWE Women’s Tag Division. Rosa of course comes out to confront Deeb, but then Deeb stands tall. Pretty sure that means Rosa wins to strengthen her reign.

And I really liked what we got out of JAS and BCC plus Proud ‘n’ Powerful. I just knew Jericho would bring up Stadium Stampede as that literally is synonymous with Double or Nothing and Jericho, but of course they can’t do that, we’re finally leaving the pandemic era behind. While I was hoping we’d get Blood & Guts announced, I hope we get that after Moxley & Bryan destroy Sydal & Dante. Otherwise, it sounds like a slightly more chaotic Falls Count Anywhere type match, which I don’t see really working all that well as far as cameras keeping up with everything. And announcing Blood & Guts just makes sense because we have Regal here to shout the name!

My Score: 9/10

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

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

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

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

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Collision returns and Shane has Dax in a bearhug! Dax endures the squeeze but the fans rally up. The ref checks Dax, the hand drops once. The hand drops twice! But then Dax comes back to life! And he BITES Shane’s forehead! The ref reprimands but Shane lets Dax go. Dax back suplexes, but falls over under Shane! Shane covers, TWO! Tag to Lee, and STP gets Dax up. Lee whips Dax but Dax turns the back drop into a cradle! TWO, and Dax CHOPS! Dax puts on a SLEEPER, but Lee RAMS him iont a corner! Tag to Shane, Dax fires hands on STP!

Cash UPPERCUTS Lee, CHOPS him, then brings Lee out to LARIAT! Shane storms up but Cash spins him and UPPERCUTS! Cash runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges and LARIATS Shane down! Fans fire up but Lee is back! Cash gets around, SLEEPER, into UPPERCUT!

Lee rebounds, into a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Lee survives and bails out while the fans fire up. Cash drags Lee up from the apron, suplexes, but Shane trips Cash! Lee lands on Cash, TWO! Lee waistlocks, Cash switches, but Lee switches! Cash bucks the O’Conner but Lee distracts the ref so Shane can DECK Cash! Lee rolls Cash up, TWO!!! Cash survives but Lee brings him up. Lee whips Cash at the corner but Cash BLASTS Shane! Cash goes up and over Lee, then does it again! Tag to Dax, sunset flip leads to the pop-up, BULLDOG BOMB! Cover, FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Ladybird Monroe!

La Mera Mera is ranked #2 in the Women’s Division, and we know the AEW Women’s World Championship is spoken for in terms of a challenger. Will Rosa then look to solidify her spot in the TBS Championship chase?

The bell rings and Rosa circles with Monroe. They tie up, go around, and Rosa waistlocks to SLAM Monroe down. Rosa then facelocks, waistlocks, but Monroe switches.

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

 

Six Man Tag: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn VS The Iron Savages & Jacked Jameson!

As the Bang Bang Scissor Gang looks to dominate all of AEW & ROH, they are trying a team remix! Max Caster has a rap for the occasion! “Acclaimed & The Bang Bang, we the real savages. ‘Bout to bring the fight like me against management! These guys’re so mad, they prolly see red!” Oh no, Caster loses the flow! This is a travesty! Bowens takes over to say, “SPRIIINGFIELD, MIZZOU-REEE~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~! Will Billy, his son Colten, and the Switchblade make a killer trio? Or will they all end up sipping the Savage Sauce?

The trios sort out and White wants to start, but so does Billy. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” so White says okay, Billy can start. Billy stares down Beefcake Boulder and the two circle. They tie up, Billy headlocks but Boulder powers up and out! Billy RAMS Boulder, neither falls, and Boulder shows off #TiddyCity! Billy says okay, “SUCK IT!” and eye poke!

Billy brings Bronson over, tags Colten, and they whip, body shot, BOOT and DROPKICK! The father-son combo has the fans fired up, and Colten brings Bronson up. Colten whips Bronson to a corner as White argues with Jacked Jameson. Colten goes to a corner, finger guns with his dad, but Jameson now argues with Billy.

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

The Bounty Hunter wants gold, but he’ll have to step into the shadows first. The House of Black has been nothing but brutal and sadistic, will Malakai add Keith to the body count?

Winner: Malakai Black, by pinfall

The Dark Father returned to singles action, and he was victorious! But then the lights go out? Why? Malakai’s already here! But then the lights come on and Mark Briscoe is here with a kendo stick! Malakai wants Mark to show mercy, but here come Buddy & Brody! Mark dodges Buddy to SMACK Brody! And then a SMACK for Buddy! Mark ducks the heel kick to UPPERCUT! Mark gets the kendo stick back, takes aim again, but then thinks of something else. He has a STEEL SPIKE! The same kind Julia Hart stabbed Mark with just a couple weeks ago! Mark aims at Malakai, but Malakai dodges! The spike stabs the buckle pad!

BLACK MASS, and then DANTE’S INFERNO!! The House of Black took Mark’s revenge and turned it around on him. Will Mark learn that no matter what, The House Always Wins?

 

Serena Deeb VS Lady Frost!

The Professor of Professional Wrestling is looking for her path to a championship, and you do that by winning. Deeb had studied up for Kiera Hogan, but cards are subject to change. Will Deeb still pass the pop quiz? Or will she be iced out of the title chase already?

The bell rings and the two circle. Deeb and Frost tie up, and Deeb wrenches to a wristlock. Frost trips Deeb, knuckle lock covers, ONE as Deeb gets a shoulder up. Frost pushes the arm down, ONE as Deeb gets the other arm up. Frost tries again, ONE as Deeb bridges! They stand, go around, and Deeb straitjackets Frost.

Deeb CHOPS but Frost pushes Frost to CHOP again! Frost stomps a mudhole into Deeb, then brings her around for a FISHERMAN SUPLEX! Deeb flounders to ropes but Frost hobbles over. Deeb kicks low, UPPERCUTS and Frost staggers back. Deeb UPPERCUTS again, swings but Frost dodges the chop to stomp and UPPERCUT! Frost snapmares Deeb and clamps on a headlock.

“But when The Professor is in the ring, I wrestle! And Serena Deeb is back to claim the division, and I’m here to put the wrestling back in All Elite Wrestling!” The fans fire up for that one! Deeb has called out the champions, will she get to take a title away from one of those champions?

 

Eddie Kingston makes his way to the ring!

Springfield cheers on The Mad King as he joins commentary, just as Bryan said he would. But he isn’t putting on the headset just yet, he must want to wait on the legend. Will Eddie’s hero slay the American Dragon? Or will Bryan beat Blue Thunder like he did Blue Justice?

Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

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

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

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

Action kips up and smiles while Top Flight talks some smack to Private Party. Action then runs and IMPLODER TORNILLOS onto Sydal! Cover, ONE, but Action tags Darius. They double whip Sydal, but Sydal KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS! Fans fire up with Sydal and he gets a “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant going. Sydal KICKS Darius’ leg over an dover, but Darius catches him to a pump-handle GUTBUSTER! Then GAMANGIRI! Sydal flounders away, Bryan Keith tags in! Keith runs up but Darius headlocks. Keith powers up and out, Darius RAMS him, but Keith rebounds to BOOT! Darius falls, Kassidy tags in!

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

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

Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

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

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

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

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

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

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

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

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

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

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

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

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

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

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

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

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Skye Blue speaks.

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

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

Fans fire up as Hager TOSSES Roddy, then CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! Hager whips corner to corner hard, runs up, but Rodd bails out again! Hager snarls, goes out after Roddy, and stalks him around the way. Matt Menard’s on commentary, he says watch out for “these bozos,” Taven & Bennett. Hager stares them down as he walks past, then fires off on Roddy! Roddy tumbles, Hager puts him in the ring, but Roddy KICKS Hager in the ropes! Roddy CLUBS away on Hager, then tells Tulsa to shut up! Roddy runs, but into a BOOT! Hager storms up, puts Roddy in a corner, and then TOSSES him across the ring!

The fans fire up as Hager LARIATS Roddy down! Cover, TWO! Roddy stays in this but Hager digs his knees into Roddy! Roddy flails and reaches out but Hager traps the arms. The ref counts as that knee gets a bit high on the chest and into the neck area. Hager lets off, but he puts Roddy in a corner to fire off body shots! Roddy staggers away as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Hornsby cheers Hager on as he clotheslines Roddy in the corner! Hager ROCKS Roddy while talking trash to The Kingdom, then he hauls Roddy up top. Hager climbs, brings Roddy up, but Roddy clubs at Hager’s leg. Roddy throws body shots, slips underneath, and then kicks the legs out! Hager ends up stuck in the ropes, and Roddy runs to STRONG KNEE him in the back! Hager falls and Roddy stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Roddy lets off to flex, but only The Kingdom cheers him on. Roddy stands on Hager in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, but then he springboard stomps Hager down!

Roddy gets the legs and has Hager in ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager sputters, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down by dropping knees, then he digs a knee into Hager’s back. Roddy has the chinlock but Hager endures and fights up. The fans rally, Hager throws body shots, and then Hager runs, but into a DROPKICK! Roddy hurries to cover, TWO! Roddy drags Hager from ropes, stomps him, then paces around while The Kingdom talks trash on Hager. Roddy glares at Hornsby but Hornsby dares him to do something! Roddy goes back to Hager to rain down fists! Roddy then lets off to put Hager in a corner.

Taven seems to be talking trash on Hornsby, probably calling him a Melvin like does everyone. Roddy stands Hager up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he scoops to BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down with another chinlock, again digging in a knee. Hager endures, fights up, and Rampage returns to single picture. Hager throws body shots and is free, but Roddy CLUBS, KNEES and runs, but into a lift! Roddy sunset flips, Hager stays up and he drags Roddy up to TOSS to a corner! Roddy BOOTS, ENZIGIRIS and then OLYMPIC SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Roddy grows frustrated as Hager stays in this.

Hornsby smacks the steel steps to rally the fans, and now Bennett glares at him. And then Taven comes in from the other side, Hornsby realizes he’s in a 2v1 situation here. Hornsby wants them to calm down, but then he pulls out a SUPER CONFETTI POPPER! It goes off and Hornsby says take that! The Kingdom still storms up on him, but here comes Orange Cassidy! The AEW International Champion is returning the favor to Hager by helping out his buddy. The Kingdom says fine, bring it then! Cassidy says hold on, he has THE HAT! He throws the purple bucket hat into Hager, and Hager loves that hat!

Cassidy then dodges Taven, shoves him into Bennett, and down they go! Cassidy rains down fists, and Hager powers up with the hat!! Roddy runs up but Hager LARIATS! And LARIATS! And OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! The fans are thunderous as Hager says, “I like this hat!!” Then Hager runs corner to corner, goes up and up, and hits the HAGER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Hager snarls! But Taven sends Cassidy into railing! The 2v1 has gotten the better of Cassidy, and Roddy JAWBREAKERS Hager! Hager staggers, Roddy storms up, OLYMP- NO, Hager slips free to GUT RWENCH BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Roddy survives, but Hager has the ANKLE LOCK!! Roddy flails, rolls over, and he kicks from below! Hager still holds on, ANKLE LOCK! Roddy flails, reaches out, but Taven throws Cassidy into the ring! The ref is distracted by that, Taven & Bennett get on the apron but Hager CLOBBERS them both! Roddy STRONG KNEES!! Hager falls, Roddy covers, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
