Bryan Danielson is here!

Milwaukee fires up for the American Dragon’s return! Bryan has been out of action for a few weeks but he is still standing, and Tony Schiavone is in the ring to give him a formal introduction. And Schiavone also adds the big week for AEW! This Sunday, The Forbidden Door, and next Wednesday, BLOOD & GUTS! Schiavone says it’s great to have Bryan back for such a big week, and hands the mic over. Bryan says that he’s not giving it back. “This week is a great week to be an AEW fan. This week is a great week to be a professional wrestling fan!

Fans cheer all that, and Bryan says again, Sunday is Forbidden Door, “an inter-promotional PPV with the two BEST pro-wrestling companies in the WORLD! You are going to see some excellent professional wrestling. And a week from today, on Dynamite, you get nearly the complete opposite with the bloody spectacle that is Blood & Guts!” Fans like the sound of that, and even chant, “Blood and Guts!” Bryan tells Milwaukee that he loves how they’re just excited for that violence as he is. And Bryan was expecting to be part of both those events. Chris Jericho had paid the self-proclaimed best technical wrestler in the world, Zack Sabre Jr., to challenge Bryan to a match.

ZSJ claims he was going to prove he is a better technical wrestler than Bryan Danielson. But Bryan was not only excited to prove that wasn’t true, but also to crush ZSJ’s throat. Bryan was excited to get into Blood & Guts to get revenge on Jericho and his “flaccid crew of cocksmen” for what they did at Double or Nothing. But unfortunately, Bryan has some good news and some bad news. Fans dread the bad news as Bryan begins. “Because of what Chris Jericho and Jake Hager did at Anarchy in the Arena, I am not cleared to compete, either at Forbidden Door or at Blood & Guts.”

But then Bryan has the good news! “Lest anybody be concerned about my overall health, you can tell that my mind is working at full, 100% capacity, I can jump into the ring, I can read 500 words a minute, I can run two miles and I won’t even break a sweat! So don’t worry about me coming back! I broke my neck, separated my shoulder, detached my retina, and there’s not a man in this world who can wrestle in this ring like I do right now!” Fans cheer that! “And that’s not even the good news! Here’s the good news! Eddie Kingston has gone on record to say that I’m a judgmental prick. Guess what? You’re damn right I am!

“And because I’m a judgmental prick, I have really, really high standards. So you know that when I promise you that something is going to be amazing, you know it’s going to be amazing. I have found… the one person I trust to take my place at Forbidden Door. The one person I trust to take my place at Blood & Guts. The one person I know in the entire world who will take it to ZSJ from a technical level, and then go and kick Chris Jericho’s head in at Blood & Guts! I have found that one person, and you are all going to be astounded by what he does in AEW!” But who is it? Who who who? Bryan points out he came out the “bad guy” tunnel, he’s not telling!

But do you know what? He won’t tell ZSJ either! So tune in this Sunday and you’ll see the greatest technical match of your lives! Fans are upset but Bryan wants to hear from them who is the best technical wrestler in the world! But wait! Zack Sabre Jr. is HERE! And the Submission Master eggs on Bryan “Dickhead” to give him something. Who is it that meets ZSJ in Chicago for the greatest technical showdown in wrestling? Will ZSJ be able to make him #JustTapOut?


Jon Moxley speaks.

“Sometimes it’s business, and sometimes it’s personal. But in a week’s time at Blood & Guts, it will most definitely be personal, Jericho Appreciation Society. What an ego trip. They blinded my best friend with fireball, and put my partner on the shelf, and last week, they came after me. In Vegas, we found out those guys can fight, and next week, we find out of this guys can survive. Because they’ll be locked in there with dogs who don’t know how to do anything else. Santana & Ortiz survived the streets of New York City. Eddie Kingston survived grinding in this business for 17 years! Wheeler survived everything we could throw at him. And me? I’ve been around the block a time or two.

“God, I hate Chris Jericho. Men like that, driven by money, fame, ego. We’ll find out just how much they’re wiling to suffer, just how much they’re willing to endure next week, inside that bloody steel cage. But before that, this Sunday, there’s a little matter of, oh, maybe the biggest match in my entire life, for the AEW World Championship against maybe the greatest wrestler who ever lived in Hiroshi Tanahashi.” This means more to Moxley than Tanahashi can imagine. These last three years of transforming into a better man and a father, this Sunday, Moxley will transform into what he always knew he could be after stepping into the ring with The Ace.

Tonight, Moxley and Tanahashi handle business. Then Sunday, it’s personal. Once the bell rings, Moxley has no respect for anyone. Will the Maniac be able to handle business so that he can finally get back to the top?


Six Man Tag: Orange Cassidy & Roppongi Vice VS The United Empire!

Chaos’ AEW branch assembles to take on the Commonwealth Kingpin and the Aussie Open! Freshly Squeezed is challenging Will Ospreay for the IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship while Rocky Romero & #JustTrent are part of a MASSIVE Triple Threat Tag Team Championship battle! Will Chaos have all the momentum going into that monumental PPV? Or will Ospreay, Fletcher & Davis conquer them here for the glory of the Empire?

Rocky and Fletcher tie up, Fletcher waistlocks but Rocky elbows out and headlocks. Fletcher lifts Rocky, throws him, but Rocky dodges the haymaker to headlock again.

Chaos coordinates, Cassidy and Rocky build speed, and they DOUBLE DIVE, but into the arms of Aussie Open! Ospreay drags Trent out to DECK him! Aussie Open meet to SANDWICH Cassidy and Rocky! Then the Empire gets Chaos up, DOUBLE APRON BACK SUPLEX and an APRON POWERBOMB!!

Ospreay drags Trent over, tags in Fletcher, and Fletcher stomps Trent. Fletcher stomps Trent’s leg then steps through to have a HALF CRAB! Trent endures, reaches out, and gets the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts, Fletcher lets go at 4, then tags in Davis. Davis stomps Trent now, paces around him, then brings him up to ROCK him with a forearm. Tag to Fletcher, and Fletcher whips Davis for Davis to whip Fletcher for Fletcher to whip Davis, but Trent BOOTS Davis away! Trent then catches Fletcher for a HALF ‘N’ HALF! Fans fire up as Dynamite returns to single picture! Trent crawls past Aussie Open, hot tag to Cassidy!

Cassidy… well, he gets in, and he “kicks” away on Aussie Open’s legs. Aussie Open barely even notices, but then they turn around. Cassidy avoids the double clotheslines to DOUBLE RANA! Fans fire up and Cassidy knuckle locks Fletcher, dodges Davis, and goes up top to FLYING RANA Davis! Cassidy runs, ducks and dodges Fletcher to tilt-o-whirl DDT! And kip up! Fans fire up again and Cassidy stares Ospreay down! Fans chant “Freshly Squeezed!” as Cassidy raises his hands, and eggs Ospreay on! Ospreay tags in and rushes over, but Cassidy moves and Rocky FLYING RANAS! Trent clotheslines Ospreay out hard!

Chaos builds speed, now they DOUBLE DIVE and PLANCHA! All three targets are hit and fans are thunderous!

Fletcher flounders into the ORANGE PUNCH!! Cover, Chaos wins!

Winners: Orange Cassidy & Roppongi Vice, by pinfall

Talk about chaos! A hectic finish sees Freshly Squeezed and friends standing tall! But wait, here comes the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions, Great-O-Khan and Jeff Cobb! They help the Empire regroup, and then the five of them get on the apron. Fans chant for them, and so here comes FTR! Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler may be RPG Vice’s opponents this Sunday, but they aren’t going to let NJPW wrestlers just do what they want in AEW! Who will reign supreme in tag team wrestling when both IWGP Heavyweight and ROH World Tag Team Championships are on the line?


Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh speak.

Sonjay says he is so happy, he just ordered a bunch of new pencils. He is so happy because Satnam’s in-ring debut went amazingly! Big wins for Jay Lethal left and right, too, and that means it is time for a celebration! They’re going to India! But Lethal says the biggest celebration is yet to come. Lethal is going to become the NEW ROH World Television Champion, but that only happens if Samoa Joe can get back to work. How long has he been gone? Satnam says it’s been a month! Yes, that means Joe is almost out of time.

So as Lethal sees it, Joe has two options: tape up the shoulder and come back to work to defend his title; or he just vacates the title so it goes to its rightful owner, the longest reigning ROH World TV Champion, Jay Lethal! The clock is ticking, Joe! What will the Samoan Submission Specialist choose to do with his title?


Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Dynamite returns and Schiavone brings up how last week’s episode had a shocking end! This man has so much to answer for, it’s Captain Charisma, Christian Cage! Fans boo as the living legend makes his way out, having betrayed Jungle Boy after losing the AEW World Tag Team Championships, hitting both a Killswitch and a Con-Chair-To. Christian joins Schiavone in the ring, and Schiavone brings up the “chairshot heard around the world.” Christian was a mentor to Jurassic Express, so why did he do what he did? Fans boo, and Christian says that he could stand here all night until they shut up, it’s up to Milwaukee.

Fans keep booing but Christian says the people here aren’t very smart so he’ll give them another chance. It is rude to make him talk over them, so maybe some decorum. SHUT YOUR DAMN MOUTHS! Christian answers the question by saying, “You didn’t think I was gonna let Jungle Boy eliminate me from the Casino Battle Royal last year and get away with it, now did you?” This is all because of that? That’s petty! Maybe, but here’s the thing: what’s more bothersome to Christian than losing a Casino Battle Royal was the reaction of each and every fan when it happened. “I am a legend in this business, and I deserve more respect than to be cheered when I get eliminated from a battle royal, do you understand me?”

Fans boo more but Christian says JB also cost him a massive winning bonus that night, and the fast track to the world title. So yeah, it pissed him off. But it got Christian thinking. If fans liked JB so much, Christian should to a little background check on him. Fans tell Christian to STFU but Christian says that despite his better judgement, he went on social media and look into the kid. “Man, what a cesspool social media has become, especially considering the wrestling corner of social media.” There are losers just like these fans here, tweeting away like their opinions matter or that they know anything about this business. You know NOTHING about Christian’s business!

Christian doesn’t need anyone’s comments about who he should be wrestling, what title he should be going for, or who he should be aligned with. He is one of the best to ever step foot in this ring, so he knows better than us, thank you. It’d be like if Christian pulled up to the drive-thru and told one of you idiots how to do your job! Schiavone wants to move to another subject but Christian says he’s not done yet. And if Schiavone interrupts again, he’s pulling that earring out of Schiavone’s head! Christian says JB cost him a lot of money, so Christian had to recoup it.

So in his research, Christian found that JB is actually pretty talented, so he hitched his wagon to that train and ride it until it went dry. Christian thought it was going to go for a long time, and he was making some easy money just giving JB those pep talks, standing beside him and in his corner, doing minimal work while cashing in big fat checks! You think Christian came back to elevate the younger talent? You think he’s here to help the next generation? No, that’s BS! He’s here to make money! Others out here complain about their paychecks, this and that, well here’s some advice, and since the fans are all too poor, it’ll be free. And this is for anyone in AEW, too.

“You wanna earn my paycheck? Here’s the deal. Try having a match that people actually talk about more than a week after it happens. Can you do that? I’m talking the type of match that parents sit their kids down and make them watch it over and over again. The type of match that changes the industry. The type of match they name PPVs after. Do that, and then you can be on my pay grade. Until then, eat my crumbs and enjoy it!” As for JB, Christian said he was gonna recoup that money, and JB does have the talent. JB just doesn’t have the brains. JB just doesn’t have the killer instinct. And somewhere along the way, Christian saw it happening.

The final nail in the coffin is that the one time Christian doesn’t give JB some pre-match advice, the one time he doesn’t walk down to the ring with them, JB loses the tag team championships. The gravy train ran dry, so as the old saying goes, “If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself.” Christian is going to take control, get his hands dirty, and that pisses him off! Schiavone cuts Christian off here, because he wants to bring up what everyone was talking about on social media, and that is what Christian told JB’s mom and sister after the show. Christian went right up to them and said they raised JB as a POS!

Why would he do that to them?! Christian says he was just giving JB’s mom the chance to apologize for giving birth to JB, but instead she flipped Christian off. But here’s why she’s really mad: she saw her knight in shining armor go off into the sunset. She was a little sweet on Christian here, and wanted him to be JB’s new father. JB did look up to Christian like a father figure, but here’s the thing: Christian never wanted to be a father figure, JB has no father, because his father is dead. But that’s a good thing, because he’d be embarrassed to see how his son turned out! To see his son crumpled like a ball of paper at Christian’s feet, unable to get up and fight back!

Fans boo even harder as Christian tells JB, “Enjoy your early retirement at 25! Stay gone!” But wait! Here comes Luchasaurus! Christian says he’s been meaning to talk to Luchasaurus about this! Luchasaurus won’t listen to Christian, he just chokes him in the corner! Christian says that hurts, they need to talk but not in front of the people! Remember what happened to Marko! What?! Christian asks Luchasaurus let go, but bringing up Marko only angers him more! Christian then says Luchasaurus is like a son to him! Fans laugh at that but Luchasaurus actually lets him go. Christian says they need to talk but in private. Christian whispers something to Luchasaurus, and then hugs him?

Fans boo, but somehow, Christian has convinced Luchasaurus to show him mercy. They go to the back, just what has Captain Charisma got to say to Luchasaurus?


The Cutler Cam is live.

The Young Bucks and Kyle O’Reilly are impressed, Brandon’s finally doing his job right. But take a look at the AEW World Tag Team Championships. They’re back on the best tag team in the world! The Tag Division is number one again, and all is right with the world. The Bucks are back on top, as the first-ever TWO-TIME, TWO-TIME AEW World Tag Team Champions. Now you might be asking, “Young Bucks, are you gonna be on the Forbidden Door PPV this Sunday?” Well, geez, since they’re the original locksmiths that created the key that opened that damn door in the first place, yes, they’ll be there!

Matt asks Kyle how he’s feeling, and Kyle is pretty far from okay! Darby Allin takes out Fish, and then The Man Called Sting should be in jail for what he did to Kyle! That was completely unprovoked! If Kyle’s hands weren’t classified as lethal weapons, he’d sue Sting’s ass. But Forbidden Door, there’s Bullet Club’s Hikuleo, El Phantasmo, and oh yes, the greatest tag team of any generation, the Young Bucks, to take on Sting and all his cronies! Bucks back in the Bullet Club, one night only! They’re gonna Superkick the Forbidden Door down, because it’s SHOWTIME, folks! WOOOO~! CACAW~! Now cut it, Brandon!

Penta endures but Malakai throws elbows into his ribs! Penta fights, Malakai shifts to have a chinlock, but Penta throws body shots. But Malakai tucks Penta back in for another Octopus! Penta endures, arm-drags free, but Malakai KICKS him in the chest!

Penta runs, wheelbarrows, victory roll and Penta goes up top for a CROSSBODY SPLASH! Malakai flounders to the apron, Penta goes out after him. Penta brings Malakai around, CHOPS him, and reels him in. Fans fire up as Penta tucks Malakai’s arms, but the back doesn’t allow Penta to lift! Malakai gets free and BOOTS Penta to the post!

Winner: Malakai Black, by pinfall (advances to The Forbidden Door)

But here comes PAC! The Bastard stares Malakai down, but then MIRO is on the tron! “My God. A week after I called you out, the All-Atlantic title came in. Is this your apology to me? All I wanted was my God, my gold, and my gorgeous wife. But you couldn’t help but test me, could you? Good. Because I will walk through The Forbidden Door, dragging all the Bastards and the Pagans with me, and I will redeem them all!! So to Malakai, Pac and Ishii, this Sunday at Forbidden Door, when I send you to meet your maker, you tell that coward The Redeemer wants to talk.” Miro is ready, Pac is ready, and Malakai will have to be ready, because only ONE can hold the gold!


Wardlow speaks.

“I always get what I want. And if I don’t, I take it. And the only thing I want is the TNT title. I’ve been waiting three years for this opportunity. I don’t take orders anymore. I told you, I’m coming for everything I want and everything I deserve. Scorpio Sky, when you’re healed and ready, I will gladly welcome you into Wardlow’s World!” When and where will the Face of TNT finally face the Maestro of Mayhem?


Adam Cole is here!

The Panama City Playboy, the “King of Harts,” and the #4 ranked singles wrestler in the AEW Men’s Division is joining commentary once again, because guess who is in the next match!

Hangman Page VS Silas Young!

The Cowboy still wants to start sh*t with NJPW’s IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, even if is Jay White now. But the ROH’s Last Real Man is making his AEW debut in a rather surprising crossover! Will Milwaukee’s own take the fight to Hangman? Or will Hangman prove he is worthy of something on Forbidden Door’s card?

The bell rings and fans fire up as the two tie up. Hangman wrenches an arm but Silas rolls, kips up, cartwheels and wrenches back.

Silas is in the corner, Hangman runs corner to corner, and clotheslines!

Fans fire up as Silas fireman’s carries, for the ROLLING SENTON!

Silas gets up the corner, headstand and ARABIAN- NO, Hangman avoids the press, waistlocks, and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Then LARIATS! Hangman goes to the apron and fans fire up as the elbow pad comes off. Silas stands up, into the BUCKSHOT! Cover, Hangman wins!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

Cole is furious and has them shut the music off! “Boys and girls, who’s ready for Storytime with Adam Cole, Baybay?” Wait, JAY WHITE is here! Cole looks confused as to why The Switchblade is here, and White tells Cole, “First off, let me apologize for coming out here and interrupting Storytime with Adam Cole. But I feel like I owe you an explanation. Over the last week, I’ve been giving it a lot of thought, and as the Catalyst of Professional Wrestling, I’m responsible for all of this. That means I’m responsible for making Forbidden Door as big as it can be.

“And as much as I would love to make it about Bullet Club and the Undisputed Elite, and do a favor for a good friend… My opponent at Forbidden Door still can’t be you. Because, Adam, you lost to him.” Hangman shrugs because that’s true. And then White adds, “Twice.” Ow… White tells Hangman that he and Milwaukee and the world all are just dying to know who White will face at Forbidden Door for his IWGP World Heavyweight Championship. White goes to the ring, and he can tell Hangman it won’t be him either. Hangman then slaps the mic out of White’s hand! White swings on Hangman but Hangman dodges to fire off haymakers!

Cole rushes the ring, Hangman DECKS him, then fires off on White! Hangman whips White but White reverses to send Hangman to the apron! But bad move, Hangman loads up! Cole LOW BLOWS Hangman!! Cole then pushes Hangman in and White fires off hands! Cole grabs the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship, and he aims at White?! White lets off on Hangman, and sees Cole! Cole claims he wants to hit Hangman with the belt, and White believes him, so White drags Hangman up. But then, that coin drop! IT’S OKADA!! Milwaukee explodes as Kazuchika Okada, the Rainmaker, is here!

Okada rushes the ring, White and Cole stand their ground, and the fight is on! Fans lose their minds as Okada fights Cole and White, and then Hangman gets back up! Adam has Adam and Okada has White as they fire off in opposite corners! Then Okada and Hangman stare at each other. Cole comes in, Hangman DECKS him! White rushes in, Okada gets around, ripcord, but White avoids the Rainmaker lariat! White and Cole bail out, IWGP World title on White’s shoulder. Fans are thunderous for Okada, but what does all this mean for Forbidden Door and NJPW’s top title?


Backstage interview with Jade Cargill & The Baddies.

Tony Schiavone is with the undefeated TBS Champion, as well as Keira Hogan and Stokely Hathaway. Schiavone says there is an injury to Red Velvet, and Jade says we can either all sit here and cry about that, or we can understand that the show must go on. Jade is STILL undefeated, and Kiera says Kris Statlander’s “alien looking ass” must think this is real funny since Velvet isn’t here because of her. But the joke is on Kris. Stokely has breaking news, drum roll please! Tony, drum roll! Bddddddt… Stokely says they’re looking for a NEW Baddie! If you want in, all you gotta do is follow these instructions.

First: Use #BaddieSearch in a post. Second: In 140 characters or less, tell them why you should be a Baddie. Or you could keep it one hundy, haha! Not everyone can grace the stage like they can, and you have to be a top notch bitch. And third: “Please, mah sisters in Christ, keep the photos PG.” Schiavone thanks them for their time, but Jade tells him to cut the sh*t. Didn’t we just say to keep it PG? But who will rise above in the #BaddieSearch and stand alongside #ThatBitch?


Athena and Kris Statlander respond!

They’re with Schiavone now, and after what The Baddies just said, O M G, they want to be Baddies, too! They can be sExY~! “You, too, can get the opportunity to stand next to Jade and find out what she smells like~!” Or, they could have the opportunity to be a tOp nOtCh bItCh~! But in all seriousness, it is very unfortunate to hear about Red Velvet. And as sad as that is, Jade must be frontin’ if she thinks Athena & Statlander are backing down. Athena says, “It doesn’t matter if you get one Baddie, two Baddies, hell, twenty Baddies. We are going to thwart each and every one of those hussies that’s set forth in our path.”

Statlander adds, “Absolutely no one can get in our way. Stokely certainly learned that lesson last week.” Oh, y’mean when Statlander smacked him in the back of the head? BOP! Exactly. So they can do their #BaddieSearch, because they’ve got the babe with the power, Willow Nightingale! And Jade, cut the sh*t! Will the Baddies be in bad shape after this trio is through with them?


Toni Storm VS Marina Shafir w/ Nyla Rose!

The Lightning From Down Under has an AEW Women’s World Championship match with Thunder Rosa this Sunday, but there’s only one problem: The Problem stands in her way! Will Storm be able to strike down Shafir? Or will she be stumbling her way into the Forbidden Door?

It is of note that the Native Beast is in Shafir’s corner after the two bonded over brutally beating opponents together on Dark: Elevation. Will Shafir soon be a Vicious Vixen like Nyla and Vickie Guerrero?

The bell rings and the two approach. Shafir BOOTS Storm down and Storm gets to a corner. Shafir storms up on Storm but Storm boots her back. Shafir laughs it off and circles with Storm. They tie up, Shafir gets a leg but Storm stays up. Fans rally, Storm hits a half hatch takeover to a cover, ONE and Shafir gets a faceclock. Shafir mounts and gets an arm to roll Storm! Storm flails, reaches out, and gets the ROPEBREAK! Shafir lets off but stares Storm down. Storm kicks at Shafir, then stands up. Shafir is after a leg again, tries a throw, but Storm clamps on. Shafir powers through for the takedown!

Storm keeps her shoulders up but Shafir shifts to get a foot. Storm rolls, reels Shafir in and headlocks. Shafir powers out but Storm redirects herself and dropkicks Shafir down! Fans fire up and Shafir gets to a corner. Storm stomps and whips, but Shafir reverses to sweep the legs! Shafir stares Storm down, then things speed up. Storm follows Shafir but Shafir KICKS her down! Storm goes to the apron and Shafir kicks her to the floor! The ref keeps Shafir from pursuing, so Nyla drops a SENTON on Storm! Fans boo as the Native Beast gets away with that one, and Shafir fetches Storm as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Shafir brings Storm up and into the ring, and has her in a corner. Shafir walks into Storm’s kicks but she grabs the legs to kick away on them! Shafir digs her boots in at the ropes but lets off as the ref counts. Shafir paces, stalks Storm along the ropes, then brings her up for a cravat into the ropes! The ref reprimands, Shafir snapmares Storm and shifts to a chinlock. Storm endures, fights up, reaches out, but Shafir throws in knee after knee! Shafir then trips Storm and waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! Storm sits up in a daze but Shafir drags her into a half nelson and wristlock combo.

Storm endures, fights up again, throws body shots, but Shafir trips Storm again and hard! Nyla applauds and Shafir covers, TWO! Shafir smirks as she drags Storma round. Storm kicks her away, Shafir cartwheels back and gets the arms for a straitjacket stretch! Storm endures again as Shafir even fishhooks her face! The ref reprimands, Shafir keeps on the straitjacket, but Storm still endures. Storm powers up as Dynamite returns to single picture, and she kicks free! Storm throws forearms, but Shafir shoves her and eggs her on! Storm throws more forearms, Shafir throws them back! Shafir chicken wings Storm to HEADBUTT her in the back!

Shafir spins Storm around again but Storm breaks free to HEADBUTT Shafir down! Shafir staggers up, Storm runs, but into a BOOT! Storm bails out of the ring and Shafir watches her. Shafir goes out, KICKS Storm around, then bumps her off the apron. Storm staggers around the way but Shafir pursues. SAYANAGI! Shafir drags Storm up again, shoves her into steel steps, but Storm avoids the boot! Shafir hobbles, Storm uses the steps for a TORNADO DDT to the floor! Storm hurries to put Shafir in, and she fires off clubbing forearms! Shafir wants the sayanagi but Storm blocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans rally up as Storm fires up!

Storm runs at Shafir corner to corner, HIP ATTACK! Storm grabs at Shafir but so does Nyla. The ref reprimands and Nyla backs off. Storm gets Shafir up, but Shafir wrenches, pump handles, and lifts, only for Storm to slip out and roll Shafir up! With a bridge! STORM WINS!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall

Storm solves the Problem, but Nyla CLOBBERS her! Nyla stomps Storm and Shafir joins in! They mug Storm, but here comes THUNDER ROSA! The champion gets in, dodges Nyla and SHOTGUNS Shafir! Nyla is after Rosa, but Rosa elbows her away and Storm CHOP BLOCKS Nyla’s leg! Rosa tops it off with an ENZIGURI! Storm grabs the belt to CLOBBER Nyla with it! Fans fire up but Rosa noticed that. Storm looks at the belt, then looks at Rosa. Storm hands the belt back to Rosa, but will Storm take it for her own this Sunday?


Darby Allin and Sting speak.

The Relentless One calls out The Undisputed Elite, saying they saw what these two did to Bobby Fish. “Kyle, you say you’re not medically cleared. I don’t believe that for one second. I just think you’re too afraid to show up this Sunday for Forbidden Door. So what do we have here? The Young Bucks and two members of Bullet Club, El Phantasmo and Hikuleo VS me and Sting. You think we’re gonna come alone? Oh, no. We’ve got two members of our own. You wanna get crazy? We can get crazy. Shingo and Hiromu! And one by one, Undisputed Elite, we’re gonna take you guys out. And it continues this Sunday at Forbidden Door.”

The Icon says, “We’re gonna keep kicking bodies all the way down the freakin’ hill! Until there’s nobody left. Two down, three, four more to go, it doesn’t matter to us. At Forbidden Door, it’s gonna be showtime.” A star-studded 8 Man Tag has been set! Will the Bucks, ELP and the Young Gun be able to make Chicago Too Sweet? Or will Darby & Sting tranquilo with Los Ingobernables de Japon?


AEW has Rampage set!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, Hook, is ready to take on whoever NJPW’s LA Dojo sends, and they’re sending Dylan Barrales, aka The DKC! Then, before the Forbidden Door Winners Take All Tag Title match, FTR’s Cash Wheeler and The United Empire’s Jeff Cobb face off 1v1! Will Cash be able to survive the “Imperial Unit?” Or will he go on a Tour of the Islands in Milwaukee?

Plus, Serena Deeb & Mercedes Martinez have been teaming up on Dark and Elevation, and their team will make its television debut! And to settle some old scores, Andrade El Idolo takes on Rey Fenix in a match of lucha libre superstars! Speaking of which…

AEW hears from Rey Fenix, Alex Abrahantes and Andrade.

Fenix asks Alex if he remembers a couple weeks ago, when Andrade took away Fenix’s opportunity to be the Interim AEW World Champion. Yes, that dastardly low blow in the battle royal! But El Idolo can’t believe Fenix is still crying about that. Andrade has other things to do. He has a wife now! But Fenix tells Andrade that when he showed up, he wanted the Lucha Brothers to work for him, but y’know what? Death Triangle works for nobody! So one more time, 1v1, on Rampage! Andrade says he is tranquilo, but he’ll see Fenix this Friday. Who comes out the better man when these two throw down?


The Forbidden Door just keeps getting bigger!

First, for the Buy-In: The Acclaimed & Gunn Club have been running strong, and now Max Caster and all three Gunns, from Austin to Colten to “Daddy Ass” himself, Billy Gunn, team up against more of the LA Dojo’s finest! The DKC, Kevin Knight, Alex Coughlin and Yuya Uemura go on an excursion of sorts, will they return home as conquering heroes?

And then, after what we saw from Jay White, Adam Cole, Hangman Page and Kazuchika Okada, the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship won’t be defended against one but THREE opponents! It will be a Fatal 4 Way, White VS Cole VS Hangman VS Okada! Will the Switchblade Era survive such a challenge? Or will the Windy City bring about the winds of change?


Jon Moxley & Hiroshi Tanahashi VS Chris Jericho & Lance Archer w/ SamTay!

Before battling for the Interim AEW World Championship as opponents, one of the best in AEW and one of the best in NJPW team together to take on some common enemies! Will the Maniac and The Ace stand tall against the Wizard and the Murderhawk Monster? Or will Jericho having The Spanish God and Brazilian Goddess in his corner be a factor?

Dynamite returns and Archer makes his entrance. William Regal has joined commentary to watch this one in person. Tanahashi makes his entrance from the stage, followed by Moxley’s entrance from the crowd. Moxley flips off SamTay before he joins Tanahashi at the ramp. They talk game plan, and then they rush the ring! The brawl is on and fans fire up! Moxley throws hands with Jericho while Archer knees and CLUBS Tanahashi!

Moxley bumps Jericho off the apron, then whips him into the timekeeper’s table! Moxley CLAWS Jericho’s back, then bends him back with a crossface! Moxley tells Jericho this is just a sampler of Blood & Guts!

Moxley puts Jericho in the ring, but Archer gets in. The ref tells Archer to get out, but this is just so Sammy can grab at Moxley! Moxley kicks Sammy away but then Jericho TRIANGLE JUMP DROPKICKS Moxley down! Jericho drags Moxley in, and then ROPE GUILLOTINES him!

Proud ‘n’ Powerful get after Sammy and Jericho, then Jake Hager and Daniel Garcia appear to go after Umino! Suzuki and Archer blast Yuta with a fan’s popcorn bucket!! Security rushes out but now they’re part of the fight! And still the Ace and Maniac stare down! Is this chaos just a sampler of what’s going to happen inside the double steel cage that is Blood & Guts?

My Thoughts:

An awesome Dynamite, especially with it as a double go-home. And unlike WWE go-homes, they don’t shove in a bunch of recap packages, they just let a lot of the on-screen talent tell you what happened last week. Like with Christian’s promo to explain why he did what he did. It seems odd that he started helping Jungle Boy because of a grudge, but him basically riding JB’s coattails to get easy money does make sense. That jab about JB’s late father, Luke Perry, was major Heel heat, holy crap. And Christian managing to stop Luchasaurus from just choke slamming him to hell was surprising. But who knows, maybe Christian manipulates Luchasaurus into turning on JB.

Great opening promo tonight from Bryan Danielson, even though he did announce he’ll be out of action for some time. But I do like that they’re managing to use this to add a fourth man to Blackpool Combat Club who will face ZSJ, and apparently be the sixth man on the BCC side in Blood & Guts. And it has to be six, because Moxley names himself, Eddie, Santana, Ortiz and Yuta in the match. This could be anyone, and I will love seeing whoever it is taking on ZSJ and joining BCC in one fell swoop for a huge debut in AEW. Lethal, Sonjay & Singh have a good promo, and you know Samoa Joe’s response will be an ROH World TV Championship match, probably on TV.

The Six Man Tag match was great stuff, but Cassidy & Roppongi Vice winning surely means Ospreay retains the US Championship (that he doesn’t even have because Juice Robinson is holding the belt hostage) and RPG Vice is taking the pin so FTR or United Empire can win without the other being weakened. Then FTR and United Empire can do a more dedicated program for the Summer, perhaps having FTR even show up on New Japan Strong. Good promos from Bucks & Kyle as well as Darby & Sting to set up a really fun 8 Man Tag. I like that Shingo & Hiromu are joining Darby & Sting, and I have a feeling Sting’s team wins, Hikuleo surely taking the pin.

Wardlow has a good promo to keep up the hype for his TNT Championship match. Great AEW All-Atlantic Championship Qualifier from Malakai VS Penta, but I knew Malakai was going to win so that the Fatal 4 won’t have two parts of Death Triangle. And great promo from Miro to call out his opponents and pretty much solidify the fact that he is winning that title. Very good promos from The Baddies to let us know they’re adding a new member, and great response promo from Kris & Athena to poke fun at them, and at the WWE “be sexy for TV time” stuff Athena brought up in her shoot interview.

Them shifting from Anna Jay to Willow Nightingale in the Six Woman Tag is fine, plans clearly head to change after Velvet got hurt. I just hope this new Baddie is a new star getting some time, not a swerve like Anna turning Heel or Willow turning on Kris and Athena. Great match from Storm VS Shafir, that was way better than just the usual tune-up stuff before a big match. Also, Nyla and Shafir sticking together as a duo makes me wonder why Vickie Guerrero’s Vicious Vixens stable hasn’t grown yet. Vickie really should try to get more women on her team, especially since there’s two women’s titles now.

Good promos from Fenix and Andrade to set up a Rampage match, and that will be awesome stuff. Hangman VS Silas was great stuff for Silas to make an AEW debut with. But Hangman wins, and we get great surprises with White and Okada showing up. A great little brawl, and a tease of Cole turning on White, and a Fatal 4 Way for the IWGP World title is awesome! This could be a way for Okada to win the belt back without pinning White, or vice-versa, White retaining without pinning Okada. It also gives us all the combinations we expected, like White VS Cole, White VS Hangman, Okada VS Cole and Okada VS Hangman, all in one amazing match.

And of course, what a great main event tag match and ending segment. Moxley and Tanahashi didn’t need to do team moves, they just needed to work together, and just as I anticipated last week, they win so that they both have momentum going into Forbidden Door. And I love that they kept staring at each other, ignoring everything going on outside the ring. That brawl was a great way to send things off before the Six Man Tag at Forbidden Door and Blood & Guts next week, this is going to be an awesome week for AEW.

My Score: 8.9/10

AEW Coverage

Mitchell’s AEW Dynamite Results & Report! (7/17/24)




AEW is going big for this milestone Dynamite!

Dynamite has reached its 250TH episode, and it opens with Will Ospreay VS MJF for the AEW International Championship!


  • AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF; MJF wins and becomes the new AEW International Champion.
  • AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose; Mone wins and retains the title.
  • Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana VS Kazuchika Okada; Swerve wins, by disqualification.


AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

Like many of us, The Aerial Assassin despise the Wolf of Wrestling for how he disrespected and used Daniel Garcia just to send a message. But also like many, Ospreay at least acknowledges and respects that this form of Maxwell Jacob Friedman is his most dangerous. Will Ospreay be able to put down AEW’s Ultimate Scumbag? Or will even the #BillyGOAT not be on the level of the devil?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who ignites episode 250!

The bell rings and the fans cheer while the two stare down. Ospreay gets the fans even more fired up, and then MJF bails out. The fans boo but MJF just hops the railing. MJF splashes fans with their own water! MJF then lounges on the barriers, offers a fist bump, but the fans just flip him off. So MJF rips a fan’s sign up and throws it back! MJF goes back to the ring, tells fans to shut up, and he approaches Ospreay. Only to dodge and strut, then swivel the hips. The fans boo but Ospreay smirks, this is the MJF he knew he was getting. They tie up, MJF wrenches to hammerlock, but Ospreay headlocks.

MJF powers up to wrench and WRING Ospreay, but Ospreay handsprings through, and copies the strut! Ospreay shows he can swivel hips, too! The fans cheer but MJF sarcastically says Ospreay’s clever. The two tie up, MJF headlocks, but the fans sing, “OSPRAEY~ OSPREAY OSPREAY OSPREAY~!” MJF is annoyed, Ospreay powers up and out, then things speed up. Ospreay hurdles then drops down to trip MJF up! MJF ducks the Hidden Blade to hit a headlock takeover! Ospreay headscissors, MJF kips free, and roles reverse as Ospreay headlocks for the takeover. MJF headscissors but Ospreay kips free.

MJF ducks the Penalty Kick, avoids the standing moonsault, then bobs ‘n’ weaves to avoid Ospreay’s punches and kicks. MJF shoves Ospreay, Ospreay springboards but MJF avoids that, too! MJF runs in, Ospreay dodges to handspring, but MJF gets under! Ospreay superhero lands, and the fans are thunderous while MJF is stunned! The fans cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for making this the opener! MJF is annoyed, but he and Ospreay tie up. MJF says Ospreay pulled hair! The fans boo because of course MJF is lying. MJF and Ospreay reset, tie up, and again MJF claims hair pulling. But then MJF pulls hair!

MJF puts Ospreay on the ropes, the ref counts, and MJF lets off, to take a swing! Ospreay dodges and then LARIATS MJF up and out! The fans fire up and Ospreay builds speed, only for MJF to get away. MJF says not today, but then Ospreay just changes course and he FLIES out onto MJF! The fans fire up and high-five Ospreay before he puts MJF in. Ospreay HOTSHOTS MJF, runs and BOOTS, then he hits as BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Ospreay prepares the elbow and the fans fire up. Ospreay aims but MJF scrambles to the apron. The fans boo, Ospreay storms over, but MJF YANKS Ospreay into buckles!

MJF stomps a mudhole in, drags Ospreay up to whip and WRING him into the corner! Ospreay flounders and MJF soaks up the heat. Then he blows snot at the fans and mocks them! MJF goes back to Ospreay, clamps onto an arm, and the fans rally and duel as Ospreay endures. Ospreay fights up, throws body shots, then forearms. MJF throws Ospreay down by his hair! The fans boo but MJF just soaks it up. MJF says he didn’t do anything. Then he clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Ospreay down. Ospreay fights up to JAWBREAKER free! Ospreay runs but MJF kitchen sink knees! MJF hauls Ospreay up to back suplex, but Ospreay lands out!

Ospreay reels MJF in to back suplex, but MJF lands out! MJF back suplexes, Ospreay lands out, into a STUNNER! Cover, TWO! MJF’s annoyed his Osaka Street Cutter, or perhaps Long Island Street Cutter, didn’t end this, but he storms after Ospreay. Ospreay is on the apron, MJF reels him in, HEAT- NO! Ospreay shoves MJF away, but MJF slingshots Ospreay into another STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and MJF is frustrated. The fans rally for Ospreay as he goes to the apron, but MJF storms over. MJF drags Ospreay in again, tries but Ospreay again denies him the Heatseeker! So MJF tries the slingshot, but Ospreay stops that!

Ospreay GAMANGIRIS MJF away, goes up a corner, and PIP PIP CHEERIO! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Ospreay rises but so does MJF. Ospreay fires haymakers on MJF first, then whips. MJF reverses but Ospreay CLOBBERS him! MJF bails out but Ospreay builds speed! Ospreay handsprings to SASUKE SPECIAL! The fans are thunderous but Ospreay takes a moment to check his ribs and catch his breath. Ospreay storms up on MJF, puts him in the ring, then goes up a corner. The fans fire up for the MOONSAULT, but MJF moves! Ospreay lands out, MOONSAULTS again, but MJF dodges again!

But the STANDING SHOOTING STAR hits! Cover, TWO! So Ospreay goes up and up to SKY TWISTER! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives the onslaught but Ospreay loads up that elbow! “This is Awesome!” as Ospreay aims again. MJF slowly rises, Ospreay runs up, but MJF bails out again! The fans continue to boo but Ospreay PLANCHAS! Down goes MJF and Ospreay high-fives more fans. And then Ospreay confiscates the timekeeper’s table! The fans are thunderous as Ospreay brings the furniture over to ringside. MJF hurries away into the ring now! Ospreay pursues as we see the fear on MJF’s face.

Ospreay CHOPS MJF in the corner! Ospreay stands MJF up to CHOP him again! The fans “WOO~” and Ospreay runs, but MJF pops him up to SUPERKICK him! MJF goes up, but Ospreay avoids the Panama City/Long Island Sunrise, but then MJF knees low! MJF reels Ospreay in but Ospreay powers out. Ospreay whips MJF to the corner, MJF goes up and over, but then MJF’s knee jams! Ospreay grabs that leg but it was a trap! MJF steps over and hits as STUFF PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and both men are down again. The fans rally up while both men stir, and MJF rises first.

MJF shows off that the leg is just fine, then does the Daniel Garcia dance just to mock him. MJF then drops an elbow on Ospreay’s leg. Ospreay CLUBS at MJF but MJF keeps the toehold. Ospreay fishhooks MJF and MJF lets go. Ospreay CHOPS, and CHOPS, then runs, but into a back drop! MJF leans on the ropes while he catches his breath, and the fans rally again. MJF storms back over, KNEES the leg, then smirks. MJF steps through, ties the legs up, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~,” even as MJF SLAPS Ospreay! And SLAPS him! MJF thrashes the hold, but Ospreay endures. Ospreay’s shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up!

Ospreay pries at the leglock, and the fans rally up as he works to turn things over. MJF fights that back, thrashes some more, but Ospreay grits his teeth. The fans rally harder and harder as Ospreay fights his way over, and he turns the hold onto MJF! MJF endures now, reaches out while shouting in pain, and he flails in order to turn things back onto Ospreay! The fans boo but Ospreay endures again. Ospreay drags MJF along, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts but MJF lets go at 4. MJF is frustrated but then he drags Ospreay up and to a corner. MJF CHOPS, takes a moment, then CHOPS again!

MJF wrenches, whips, but Ospreay can’t even make it all the way! MJF smirks while the ref checks Ospreay. Ospreay shakes out the leg, refusing to admit defeat. MJF storms over, stands Ospreay up, and CHOPS! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s back! MJF whips, Ospreay barely makes it to ropes! MJF wants after Ospreay like a shark with blood in the water, but Ospreay sits on the apron. MJF tells off the fans cheering Ospreay, but Ospreay is somehow still in this. So MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s face! The fans boo but MJF soaks it up. Ospreay throws body shots and haymakers! Ospreay CHOPS and MJF wobbles!

Ospreay CHOPS again, MJF flails more. Ospreay snarls, runs, but MJF CHOP BLOCKS the legs! MJF covers, TWO! MJF frowns but he stomps Ospreay’s leg. MJF then stands Ospreay up to CLUB him on the neck! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS his back! Ospreay fires big forearms! Then he fires Kawada Kicks! MJF wobbles, into a CHOP! MJF goes to ropes, Ospreay scoops him, but MJF CLAWS the eyes again! The ref reprimands and counts, MJF stops at 4. The fans boo but MJF whips. Ospreay ducks ‘n’ dodges, and DOUBLE LARIATS take both men down! The fans fire up again while Ospreay again clutches the leg.

Ospreay rises, but MJF KNEES the knee! Then MJF calls his shot! MJF suplexes, but STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE hits first! MJF wobbles around, Ospreay calls his shot now! Springboard, OSCUTTER!! But MJF flops all the way to ropes! Ospreay has to crawl his way over, and MJF flops to the floor! MJF’s ring awareness is strong but Ospreay pursues. Ospreay drags MJF up to put him in the ring, and then onto the apron. Ospreay uses a corner to go up and APRON OSCUTTER FLOP as MJF steps back! Ospreay writhes, signaling to his arm, and the ref hurries to check. MJF may have gotten lucky here, as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref has Ospreay go around the way but MJF is in pursuit! MJF shows no mercy as he grabs that bad arm, and RAMS Ospreay into steel steps! MJF stands on the steps to soak up all the heat, as well as talk some trash on Ospreay. It’s certainly in the vain of MJF is who AEW needs, not Ospreay. MJF drags Ospreay up and into the ring, then takes his time to taunt fans over the table. He flips the fans off, he isn’t gonna do what they want. MJF then goes back to Ospreay, grabs the bad arm, and he stands on it, to then STOMP it! MJF soaks up more heat as he paces around Ospreay, then clamps onto the arm again.

Ospreay endures the mounted armlock, and he fights to his feet. Now Ospreay pulls hair, but MJF throws Ospreay down by the arm. MJF grinds that shoulder but Ospreay still endures. The fans rally as Ospreay fights, stands up, and throws body shots. Dynamite returns to single picture as Ospreay ROCKS MJF with forearms. Ospreay whips, MJF reverses but Ospreay handsprings, only for MJF to KICK the bad arm! Ospreay clutches the elbow, but MJF hauls him up! Double underhooks, for a SHOULDER BUSTER! And then it’s back to the armlock! Ospreay rolls through, but MJF ducks the roundhouse to pump handle!

MJF adds a half nelson, MADE IN JAPAN! Or perhaps, Made in Long Island? Cover, TWO!! Ospreay knows that move from his rivalry with Shingo Takagi. The fans rally while both men are down again, “This is Awesome!” Ospreay and MJF slowly rise, MJF storms over, and he whips. Ospreay holds ropes to stop that, so MJF CLUBS the arm!

MJF survives and the fans can’t believe it! The fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but there’s still more show that has to happen! MJF crawls to the apron, Ospreay stalks him. MJF flops to the floor, but he’s near that table… Ospreay goes to the floor and brings MJF up.

MJF throat chops Ospreay! MJF runs away into the crowd, but Ospreay pursues! Ospreay fires hands on MJF even as MJF goes up the bleachers. Ospreay grabs MJF, bends him against railing, and offers free shots. A little girl starts punching MJF in the ribs! MJF flips her family off but Ospreay CLUBS away on MJF! Ospreay fist bumps the girl and drags MJF back up. Ospreay ROCKS MJF with a right and follows him down the stairs. Ospreay CHOPS MJF to keep him moving, but MJF takes a detour into the seats. So Ospreay makes MJF take a seat and punches down hands! The fans count along, Ospreay winds up, and hits TEN!

MJF flounders around, Ospreay shows that there’s one guy still wearing an MJF Kangaroo Kick shirt, and then pursues MJF. MJF pokes Ospreay right in the eyes! MJF CLUBS Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks MJF! Ospreay SMACKS MJF off the trash can! The fans fire up and Ospreay DUMPS MJF into the trash can! MJF kicks and flails but Ospreay BOOTS the can! MJF falls out, stumbles away, and Ospreay pursues. They finally return to ringside, and Ospreay refreshes the count that was never happening anyway. Ospreay then drags MJF over to the table, punches him onto it, then goes up the steel steps.

Ospreay then goes up the corner and fans are thunderous already! Ospreay aims, but MJF hurries off the table. The fans boo and Ospreay sighs, but Ospreay hops down to go after MJF. But MJF gut wrenches! Ospreay victory rolls, TWO! MJF has the victory roll, TWO! Ospreay has it, TWO! MJF is up, Ospreay gets around and hops on, POISON-RANA! MJF flounders to a corner, Ospreay runs up, but MJF pops him up! Another SUPERKICK as Ospreay is upside-down! MJF goes up, LONG ISLAND SUNRISE!! Cover, TWO!?! The fans are electric as Ospreay survives another hard shot! Ospreay then goes to the apron and then the floor.

MJF pursues, and we return to the table. MJF puts Ospreay on the table and then goes up the apron. The fans rally as MJF actually climbs the corner. MJF reaches the top, but then Ospreay slips off the table! The fans still boo, they want that table to see some action. MJF hops down, talks smack on Ospreay, then CHOPS him. MJF BITES Ospreay’s arm! The fans boo and tell MJF he’s sick! The ref counts, MJF lets off, but he then ROCKS Ospreay with a haymaker. MJF again mocks Daniel Garcia, even asking if Garcia has feeling in his arms again. MJF then whips Ospreay hard into railing! Ospreay almost ends up in the front row!

MJF makes Ospreay take a seat, and he CLAWS at Ospreay’s face! MJF refreshes the ring count, then runs in at Ospreay, to BOOT Ospreay against railing! MJF hops up to soak up more heat, then he refreshes with some water. That he then splashes at fans. MJF stalks Ospreay back to the table, refreshes the count, and then asks, “Ospreay who?” MJF stands Ospreay up to whip, but Ospreay goes up onto the railing, to OSCUTTER to the floor! The fans fire up again while both men are down! Ospreay clutches the bad leg and the bad arm, but he manages to rise up and put MJF in. Ospreay then swings, but into MJF’s dragon sleeper!

But Ospreay flips things around! The fans cheer, as Ospreay hits CROSS RHODES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives, but Ospreay storms after him in a corner. MJF uses the ref as a shield, then he pokes Ospreay in the eyes! MJF goes up to DOUBLE STOMP the bad arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, hammerlock and lift, DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Ospreay survives and the fans continue to rally behind him. MJF is frustrated but he pursues Ospreay to the apron. MJF drags Ospreay through ropes, and HEAT- NO! Ospreay throws MJF away, MJF’s leg “jams,” and Ospreay takes aim. Ospreay springboards but MJF hits ropes to trip him up!

Ospreay gets stuck up there, MJF goes up to LEAPING LARIAT!! Cover, TWO?!? MJF is beside himself as Ospreay survives again! MJF stalks Ospreay to the apron, drags him up, and gut wrenches! The fans freak out but Ospreay flails and kicks! Ospreay turns things around onto MJF, but MJF KICKS Ospreay! MJF then suplexes, but Ospreay slips free! Ospreay waistlocks but the arm won’t let him lift! So Ospreay SUPERKICKS MJF instead! MJF wobbles, Ospreay reels him in, and tucks him for an APRON STYLES CLASH!!! Both men fall to the floor and Little Rock is losing its collective mind right now!

Ospreay drags MJF up and into the ring, covers, TWO!!!! MJF survives but Ospreay is too tired to be upset. Ospreay just rises up, brings MJF to his feet, and reels him in. Even with one arm, Ospreay hits a LAST RIDE!! Cover, TWO!! MJF reminds us why he was once the longest reigning AEW World Champion while Dynamite goes back to picture in picture.

Ospreay shakes out the arms, but Doc Sampson is called over to check. Doc checks that arm, from lifting to turning. Then Doc checks with Ospreay if he wants to do “that,” and Ospreay says go for it. Doc YANKS Ospreay’s arm to pop it back in place! Ospreay clutches the arm again but it seems that did the trick. Ospreay has the fans fired up again, and he drags MJF up for Kawada Kicks! Ospreay stands over MJF while Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns and Ospreay calls his shot. MJF rises, and he spins Ospreay around to BITE Ospreay’s face! The fans boo, MJF runs, but Ospreay HIDDEN BLADES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives a shot to the face but Ospreay roars! The fans are thunderous as MJF sits up, into a BUZZSAW! MULE KICK! OSC- NO, MJF stops the cutter to gut wrench, and TOMBSTONE!! Cover, TWO?!?! Ospreay survives again and the fans again cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving us this instant classic. MJF snarls, and he uses wrist tape to CHOKE Ospreay! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off, and MJF goes to the corner with Ospreay.

MJF wrenches the bad arm, whips him hard into the corner, and Ospreay falls. The fans boo but MJF grins as he rises up. MJF storms over to Ospreay, stands him up and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! MJF whips again, and harder! Ospreay falls back, MJF flexes, but the fans boo. MJF mocks the United Empire crown then says shove it. MJF drags Ospreay up, whips him corner to corner again, but Ospreay reveres! MJF tumbles up, comes back, and Ospreay CHOPS! And CHOPS! But MJF blocks one again to WRING the arm again! Ospreay writhes, MJF leans on ropes, and then MJF runs in. Ospreay DUMPS MJF out hard!

The fans fire up and Ospreay goes to the apron, only for MJF to YANK him down! MJF puts Ospreay in the ring and says that’s why he’s the smartest wrestler in AEW. But not the wisest as Ospreay DIVING HIDDEN BLADES MJF!! Both men fall to the floor and the fans are thunderous again! Ospreay rises, a ring count starts, and fans count along. We hit 5 of 10, Ospreay puts MJF in at 6. Ospreay goes up the corner, and he BLINDSIDE CHEERIOS! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives again but Ospreay doesn’t get frustrated. Ospreay goes to the apron and climbs up the corner, but MJF again hits ropes! Ospreay lands bad on the corner this time!

MJF climbs up, throws hands, then goes to the very top. SUPER- NO! Ospreay stops the Steiner with one good arm! The fans fire up as he tucks MJF in, for a SUPER STYLES CLASH!! But Ospreay struggles to turn MJF over for the cover! ROPEBREAK!! Ospreay is frustrated now but there’s nothing he can do about that. Ospreay drags MJF up but MJF HOTSHOTS the arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, for an APRON HEATSEEKER!! Ospreay flops to the floor, and MJF looks at the table…! MJF puts Ospreay on the table, hurries back to the corner, and MJF climbs! The fans are going nuts already as MJF SUPER MACHO ELBOWS THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as MJF goes for broke! The ref checks both men, and they’re somehow okay to continue! “This is Awesome!” as we once again go picture in picture.

MJF flounders his way back to ringside and drags himself in. But Champion’s Advantage won’t let him win the title like this! Ospreay is still on the outside as we pass 5 of 10, and he starts to stir around 7. MJF then springs out after Ospreay to get him back in! Seems MJF was just resting, and he shouts about something, probably about how he’s better. MJF stands, paces around, then stomps Ospreay’s legs, then Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns again, and MJF has Ospreay in a Cobra Twist. MJF sneakily grabs the ropes to add on leverage! The ref looks but MJF lets go in time. Ospreay still endures, and MJF digs a knuckle into the ribs. MJF then again sneaks a grab at the ropes! The ref gets closer to catching him but the fans tell on MJF! MJF tells them all to shut up!

The fans sing for Ospreay as he crawls to a corner. MJF sits up then rises up to soak up heat. MJF hits the kangaroo stance?! The fans are torn, surely he isn’t serious. But then MJF runs up, KANGAROO- NO! Ospreay catches MJF!

Ospreay CATAPULTS MJF, but MJF lands safe on the corner! Only for Ospreay to tuck him in and CHEEKY NANDOS! MJF is still stuck so Ospreay goes up after him, for a SUPER POISON RANA! MJF lands out?! MJF shows he can do what Ospreay does and the fans lose their minds! LARIAT in the corner, then MJF hoists Ospreay up top.

Little Rock gives a standing ovation for this AEW Match of the Year contender! MJF crawls to a corner, Ospreay pursues. Ospreay puts MJF up top, ROCKS him, but has to slap some fire into himself. Ospreay goes up top, but MJF fires body shots!

Ospreay throws off the elbow pad as Little Rock is erupting! MJF sits up, but DUCKS the Hidden Blade! Ospreay tumbles but MJF is also down, too tired to sit back up.

Winner: MJF, by pinfall (NEW AEW International Champion)

There was literally two seconds left, but MJF pulls it off!! The Wolf of Wrestling proves he’s still just a lowdown dirty snake, but he’s the snake that stole the gold from the #BillyGOAT. Medics help both guys get icepacks, water and oxygen, and MJF rises like a zombie to celebrate himself. The Scumbag may have survived The Aerial Assassin, but will he be ready to go All In against The Bastard?


Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

Arkady Aura is with the Sussex County Chicken, as well as Max Caster & Anthony Bowens, and says they asked for this time to talk with each other. Caster says that’s right, because they know Mr. Briscoe is on Team AEW for Blood & Guts. They also know that Team AEW needs a couple more partners, and the only way Mark gets “The Best Wrestler Alive” on his side is when Caster & Bowens join the team together. Plus, The Acclaimed just beat The Bucks a couple weeks ago, they have their number, this is a no brainer! Bowens says that’s right! And they’re also this close to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions once again, they want a piece of The Bucks’ asses!

Plus, when you think AEW, you think The Acclaimed, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So they want in! Mark says that’s right! They had his back a couple weeks ago, so as far as he’s concerned, The Acclaimed is in, baby! But Mark’s not the only man calling the shots on this, if you understand what he’s saying. In steps AEW World Champion, Swerve Strickland. Swerve says listen! They’ve been through their fair share of squabbles, so he knows what Acclaimed is all about. Swerve’s also been in battles with The Briscoes, so he knows Dem Boys are real tough people. There is nobody better to go to war with than those you’ve battled against.

Therefore, “y’all ready to get violent?” The Acclaimed say hell yeah! Hands in, and Mark warns The Elite that Team AEW is coming for them! LET’S GO, BABY!! Bowens & Caster follow Briscoe out, Swerve nods, will this team be ready to rip apart The Elite? Will Swerve be ready for The Rainmaker later on tonight in the main event? Or will Kazuchika Okada rain on Swerve’s House and wash it away?


“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

The Redwood introduces to the “seeds, saplings, roots and most importantly, branches,” the Learning Tree, Chris Jericho! The “For The World” Champion is accompanied by “Bad Apple” Bryan Keith as he makes his way out here, waving to Little Rock. The fans boo but Jericho still smiles. “Hi, guys~! Y’know, Little Rock, you need to take a few lessons from The Learning Tree. This city is such a high-crime, violent city, 1,533 crimes for ever 100,000 people, you can do better than that! But let’s talk about Dynamite 250 for AEW, I was on the very first Dynamite, and I’ve been on almost every single one since.

“And the ones that I missed, the Branches were so angry, cards and letters filed in, so I made a promise, I’m never gonna miss another Dynamite again.” The fans boo but Jericho says he’ll be on every one, even until episode 500! It’s like he’s said: When you listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. And when you don’t, people get hurt, dammit! This isn’t right! Jericho is begging us all to listen to him! Look to those who haven’t. Shibata’s arm, Hook getting that fireball to his face, that’s horrible. And then Samoa Joe is literally driven through a wall because he wasn’t listening to The Learning Tree!

Jericho is begging us, this has to stop! People are getting hurt! At this point, everyone should realize they need to listen to Jericho. Surely everyone knows the teachings of Jericho are so important. Who would be crazy enough not to listen? Who would be psychotic enough not to use the teachings of Jericho? Who would be maniacal enough to- IS THAT MINORU SUZUKI!? Jericho is very worried seeing the Meanest Man in the World returning here to AEW! Suzuki has a paper in his hands, but what could it be? Suzuki goes to the ring and fans get fired up. Suzuki waits, and he steps in at “KAZE NI NARE~!”

Suzuki stares Jericho down while the fans cheer him on. Suzuki looks at the FTW Championship, then he snatches Jericho’s mic. “Next week…” Suzuki holds up the paper, Keith snatches it, and Keith reads it for Jericho. This is an official order from AEW management. The Redwood AND Bad Apple are banned from ringside for Jericho VS Suzuki, an FTW Championship match! Suzuki then HEADBUTTS Jericho down! Bill goes to help Jericho and Keith backs up. Suzuki grins and waves, “Bye, guys~!” Jericho looks to be fearing for his life now that he knows there is someone crazy enough to ignore his teachings. Will the King of Pancrase cut down The Learning Tree?


The Elite speak.

Nicholas asks Matthew and Okada if they heard all that. The Elite heard what The Acclaimed, Mark Briscoe and Swerve Strickland had to say, and it is ridiculous! What pisses them off even more is that The Acclaimed think they’re just gonna become two-time AEW Tag Team Champions. Not on their watch! Matt says what those guys need is a reminder about just who the hecc they are! This is THE Elite, the greatest team in AEW. And after next week, they’ll have all the gold and all the power! Nick points out it won’t be all the gold. Swerve is still AEW World Champion. Well, Matt says after what they do to Swerve, that title might just end up vacated.

Because see, they’re dealing with the most dangerous people in the business. They’re going up against The Young Bucks, the greatest tag team ever. They’re dealing with the Continental Champion, The Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada. They’re dealing with the unpredictable Scapegoat, the TNT Champion, Jack Perry. And Matt’s favorite part: making his return to The Elite, Hangman Adam Page! And oh, in steps the TBS Champion, Mercedes Mone! The CEO says hi to the EVPs, and she thanks them for banning Britt Baker from even being backstage tonight so that she can’t ruin Dynamite 250 for them.

Matt says let’s just say there’s no drama coming from The DMD to the CEO, via the EVPs. Okada whispers something to Matt and Matt asks if Mone will do the dance for them. Oh, her CEO shuffle? Of course! C E O! C E O! Ok, got to go~! Mone heads out, Okada wipes himself down. He claims it’s just really hot back here. Matt & Nick say okay, sure. But will The CEO still be golden like The Elite? Or will she end up the Native Beast’s next meal?


AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

Well, as we just heard, there will be no Britt Baker anywhere tonight because that is how bad she got under The CEO’s skin. Mone even made sure this Open Challenge would not allow Britt to answer it, so in steps a different former AEW Women’s World Champion. Will Mone find there are threats all over the AEW roster? Or will she still be making that double champion type bank?

The introductions are made, the teal title is raised, and we see who is truly the Face of TBS!

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally and duel, the two tie up, and Mone tries but she can’t push Nyla back at all! Nyla puts Mone in a corner, Mone goes up the ropes, but the ref counts. Nyla lets off but Mone scuffs her. Nyla is annoyed, but she mocks Mone’s dance. Nyla runs up, Mone leaps over, but then Nyla runs up again. Mone gets around, waistlocks, but Nyla THROWS her away! The fans rally, Nyla storms up but Mone drop toeholds her onto ropes! Mone CLUBS and stomps away on Nyla. Mone drags Nyla up to stomp into a corner, but the ref counts. Mone digs her boots in, but lets off at 4.

Mone backs off to then storm back up and drag Nyla up. Mone talks trash, but Nyla reels her in! Nyla suplexes, and she holds Mone up, does a squat or two, but Mone slips free! Mone CLUBS Nyla, runs, but Nyla scoops her! Nyla stops the tilt-o-whirl, and shouts, “Have you lost your mind?!” Nyla suplexes to hang Mone out to dry! Nyla KNEES Mone, goes to the corner and climbs, and the fans fire up for the GUILLOTINE KNEE DROP! Nyla drags Money to the cover, TWO!! Mone survives and Nyla is frustrated, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla drags Mone up, ELBOWS her down, then she drags Mone into a backbreaker rack across her knee! Mone endures, even as Nyla pushes her down! Mone fights free with kicks, then fires forearms. Nyla ROCKS Mone right back! Nyla then torture racks Mone to thrash her around! Mone endures, slips down, but Nyla blocks the arm-drag! Nyla whips Mone into the corner, then runs in, only for Mone to move! Nyla POSTS herself, then Mone goes to the apron. Mone BOOTS Nyla into the post! Nyla falls back, Mone soaks up the cheers and jeers, then she sits Nyla down. METEORA! Mone drags Nyla to a cover, TWO!

Mone is upset so she rains down fists! The ref reprimands, Mone lets off to swagger around. Mone stalks Nyla, stomps her around, then bumps her off buckles. Mone stands Nyla up for forearm after forearm, then she climbs up to rain down fists! Mone goes to nine, soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Nyla brings Mone off the corner! Mone RANAS Nyla away, hurries to run, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO! Mone is frustrated but Nyla’s a former champion for a reason. Mone drags Nyla up, and clamps on with a COBRA TWIST! Nyla endures, even as Mone puts on the pressure. Mone ELBOWS Nyla in the ribs, but Nyla powers out with a hip toss!

Mone stands, blocks a boot and KNEES Nyla back. Mone runs, slips around, and has a SLEEPER! Dynamite 250 returns to single picture while Nyla starts to fade! The fans rally, Nyla fights up, and she swings Mone around into a facelock! Nyla snap suplexes Money away! The fans fire up while Mone flounders to a corner. Nyla snarls, rises up, and runs in to back body block! And then LARIAT! Mone staggers back up, Nyla runs in at the corner and SPLASHES! Mone sits down, Nyla fires up and Little Rock is with her! CANNONBALL! Nyla drags Mone to a cover, TWO!! Mone survives, showing why she’s been champion all over the world.

Nyla snarls, and she goes up the corner. Mone stands to kick the leg! Nyla falls, Mone goes up and up to VADER BOMB! Nyla sputters, Mone gets moving, BOOT WASH! Mone pushes Nyla, goes up the corner, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Mone can’t believe it! Mone drags Nyla up, turns her, but Nyla’s too big to Gory Especial! Nyla RAMS Mone into the corner, the fans duel, but Nyla puts Mone up top. Nyla then climbs up to have Mone’s arm. But Mone fires elbows on Nyla! Mone adjusts position, and SUPER BULLDOGS! Mone then brings out a glove, all to mock Britt!

Mone puts on her glove, spells out “C! E! O!” RINGS OF SATURN, and then the LOCKJAW!! Nyla BITES Mone’s fingers!! That’s what Mone gets! But then DRIBBLES Nyla’s face off the mat, and puts on the STATEMENT MAKER! Nyla taps, Mone wins!

Winner: Mercedes Mone, by submission (still AEW TBS Champion)

Mone may not be able to do it like The DMD, but she still wins out and holds up both belts. Mone then spots a fan with a sign, “DMD > CEO,” and she snatches that sign! Mone RIPS the sign up, and the fan wearing the Sting mask is upset. That fan pie faces Mone!? Because surprise! It’s BRITT BAKER!! The DMD suck into the show and The CEO is running for her life!! Security surrounds Mone to shield her from Britt! The guards then swarm Britt, and Mone is safe, for now. Will Britt have her Wembley Stadium moment with Mone whether Mone likes it or not?


Jack Perry speaks.

The Scapegoat flips a coin, then tells Darby Allin, “You wanted to get my attention? Well, you’ve got it now. All you had to do was ask. Did you really have to go and hurt Brandon Cutler? Maybe what I mean to say is, do you think I give a s*it about Brandon Cutler?” He is standing OVER Brandon! And then THROWS him through a door! Jack SMACKS Brandon off a boiler, then tells Darby to come find Jack tonight. Then Jack will show Darby what real sacrifice looks like. Will The Relentless One get that fight with the TNT Champion after all?


Toni Storm is here!

The Leading Lady is back so soon after how brutally Mariah May betrayed her? Wait, no… That’s Mariah May taking her cosplay to a new level. The understudy is now portraying the part of AEW Women’s World Champion as she menacingly makes her way down to the ring. The fans boo the protege for how she did Toni Storm dirty, but Mariah grabs a mic for herself. The fans chant for Toni but Mariah sighs. “Let’s be honest. You all saw it coming. Everybody saw it coming, except Toni Storm.” The fans boo but Mariah says that woman is so desperate for the spotlight, she didn’t realize she was giving it all away.

“The question shouldn’t be ‘why,’ the question should be, ‘Mariah, what took you so long?’ Honestly, I didn’t think it would last this long either. But it was so… easy! And I was having so much fun stringing her along, I just wanted to see how far it would go. But then, I saw Wembley. And I thought, ‘Why take the old horse out back when I can kill it in front of as many people as possible?” The fans boo more but Mariah says she’s been Toni Storm, and now she can be so much more! Fans chant “We Want Toni!” and Mariah smirks. Mariah tells Toni not to worry, she still loves her. In fact, she’s never loved her more than when Toni was on her knees, screaming and crying Mariah’s name. “That was your greatest performance.”

As for Mariah’s greatest performance, that will be at All In! The fans boo more but Mariah says now, AEW is All About Mariah! Mariah then lies back on the mat to revel in it just like Toni would. But will Toni make sure Mariah suffers far worse than what she gave Toni?


AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

The Bang Bang Gang returned backstage but they’re asked about being stripped of the Unified World Trios Championships. Juice said hold on, they ain’t been stripped of nothing. Whoever wants these belts will have to pry them out of their cold, dead hands! But then Christopher Daniels and a couple refs appear backstage, and the Fallen Angel knows it isn’t the most popular decision, nor is it fair to the champs, but that’s the rules of AEW. Austin says he isn’t taking these belts! Daniels says it’s either that or they’re suspended and they don’t get a chance to fight for them against The Patriarchy.

Colten says fine, take ’em. Take all nine belts! Daniels gathers them up and Austin tells Christian Cage that they are not scared of a guy with a daddy fetish, some TikTok kid, a stepmom straight outta Brazzers, and a giant lizard! Juice says what will happen is The Collision Cowboys come home, and they come home with their little hardware homies! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make sure Captain Charisma and his “sons” never touch the gold? Or can no one stop The Patriarchy from taking over AEW?


Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana VS Kazuchika Okada!

It is a Champion VS Champion showdown to close this milestone episode, but no titles are on the line. However, Blood & Guts is just next week, and each side is looking for momentum. Will Little Rock belong to Swerve’s House? Or will The Rainmaker prove he’s the top champion in AEW?

But then Jack Perry shows up to CLOBBER Caster! But then here comes Mark Briscoe! Chicken DECKS Matt, DECKS Jack, and DECKS Nick! Team AEW stands tall together, but Jack comes back for more!

Jack RAMS Darby into railing, Mark returns to help Darby! Security finally separates the factions, which is just fine by The Bucks! But will nothing stop Team AEW from destroying this corrupt Elite once and for all?

My Thoughts:

Now this was an awesome episode of Dynamite. They only advertised three matches, and it turns out that’s all we needed. Ospreay VS MJF was made the opener so they could just go off and give us almost an hour of their best stuff. It kinda makes some PPV matches feel lesser now, but hey, a match of the year candidate is still a match of the year candidate, no matter if it’s TV or PPV. MJF winning out surprised me, but he did cheat so that protects Ospreay. I was hoping for Ospreay VS Pac at All In, but I suppose “The Scumbag VS The Bastard” makes for some fun build. And with how much MJF was taunting Garcia, this has to mean Garcia shows up at All In to go after MJF.

TV Time with Jericho was properly short because we can’t actually drag the show to a screeching halt after how awesome Ospreay VS MJF was. As Jericho started listing qualities like “crazy” and “maniacal,” I just felt Suzuki showing up. Suzuki getting his FTW Championship match with Jericho next week is great, but I’m still thinking Jericho retains. Now, while Keith & Bill are banned from ringside, nothing is stopping Hook from showing up. Hook could go after Jericho after he retains, and that sets up Jericho VS Hook for All In. Which would be interesting because that makes it back to back All In shows for Hook and this FTW Championship.

Good promo from The Bang Bang Gang with Daniels, but like, so filler. Who needed to see them hand over the belts? Or rather, why couldn’t they have figured out to do that during Collision? Very good promo from Mariah May where she completes her transformation into Toni Storm’s replacement. She even phrased it “All About Mariah” to nod how this has been All About Eve the movie, in wrestling form. The fans kept going “What?” just cuz she was taking things slowly, which is rude, but I do feel she could’ve been faster about it. She was definitely going for something with her pacing, but maybe she was also just filling for a little more time. Toni will surely have a response next week or something, though.

Very good promo from Acclaimed with Mark Briscoe and Swerve to establish the Acclaimed joining Team AEW, and very good response promo from The Elite to call them out on it. Though, what a weird detail for Okada to be a Mone simp. He’s married for crying out loud! But that aside, Mone is still tangentially a part of The Elite, and she had a very good match with Nyla tonight. Mone of course found the way to win, but I do appreciate Britt gives us a Sting shoutout by wearing the Sting mask before revealing she was here. Mone running scared was pretty funny, and yeah duh, this match is happening at All In.

In relation, very good promo from Jack Perry, even if poor Brandon had to get beat up again. Jack calling Darby out was good foreshadowing for Darby’s own Sting tribute, and I figured last week that Darby Allin was going to be Team AEW for Blood & Guts. Great main event from Swerve VS Okada that The Bucks of course had to “ruin” to save Okada from a legit loss. At the same time, this keeps either champion from owing the other a title match so close to All In. Great brawl to give us the full 5v5, Blood & Guts is going to be some wild stuff, and it can definitely go either with so many champions involved this time. However, as Mark Briscoe is the only one whose rivalry is NOT in Blood & Guts, he probably takes the loss for Team AEW.

My Score: 9.1/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

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

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO!

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

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

Juice powers up and out, tags Colten, and then Colten tags Austin. Bang Bang Gang hit a body shot, KNEE LIFT, and LARIAT! Juice adds a SENTON, then Colten SPINNING SPLASHES!

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

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

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

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

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


The House of Black speaks.

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


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

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

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


ROH World Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Dalton Castle w/ The Outrunners!

Death Before Dishonor is less than two weeks away, and Mark Briscoe needs himself a challenger! Two former ROH World Champions, who are no strangers to each other, do battle once again to become such a challenger. Will it be the Savior of the Backbreaker or The Peacock that faces The Sussex County Chicken in Arlington?

The bell rings, the two circle, and The Kingdom is already barking at Truth Magnum & Turbo Floyd. Roddy and Castle tie up, Castle waistlocks but Roddy wrenches. Roddy slaps Castle around and taunts him. Castle rolls away to ropes and cools of. The fans rally up, the two circle again, and Castle picks a leg to trip Roddy and gator roll him. Castle waistlocks but Roddy goes under the ropes. The ref counts and Calgary is behind Castle as he lets Roddy go. Roddy bails out and regroups with The Kingdom. Taven blocks out the Castle chants, then Roddy rushes in. Castle gets around to waistlock and wrangle Roddy!

Roddy fights up, Castle shifts, but Roddy fights off the chinlock. Castle pushes him to a cover, ONE, but Castle holds onto a leg to keep Roddy down. Roddy BOOTS Castle with the other leg! Castle bails out and he regroups with his new boys, The Outrunners. They pump up for him, and the flexing inspires him! Castle feels that energy, he starts doing laps around the ring, though staying away from The Kingdom. Castle gets in to fire off forearms and CHOPS on Roddy! Castle lifts Roddy but Roddy scrambles onto the ropes. Roddy ROCKS Castle, bumps him off buckles again and again, then goes up the corner.

The fans fire up and Castle puts Roddy in the ring. Castle argues with Taven, old rivalry there too. The Outrunners get in The Kingdom’s faces, and they flex on ’em! But then Roddy WRECKS Castle with a dropkick! Roddy hauls Castle up to BARRIER BACK SUPLEX!

The Kingdom gloats while the fans boo, and Roddy shouts “Who’s the man now?!” while Collision goes picture in picture.

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender tot he ROH World Championship)

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

Mark Briscoe speaks.

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

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


Program loading.

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


Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

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

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


Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

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

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

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


Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

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

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


Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey.

Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

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


Skye Blue speaks.

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


Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

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

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

Taven waistlocks, Cassidy switches and shoves Taven into Bennett. Cassidy then back drops Taven, and has hands up! Bennett runs up but Cassidy blocks the kick. Cassidy spins Bennett, headlocks, but Bennett powers up and out. Cassidy tags Kyle, dodges Bennett, then puts hands in pockets before bailing. Bennett runs around and Kyle KICKS! And KICKS! And whips, to then kitchen sink knee! Bennett sputters, Taven runs in, but Kyle blocks the kick!

Taven apologizes and says he still doesn’t wanna fight. But then he pokes Kyle in the eyes! Taven says that is why he doesn’t wanna do this. But Cassidy runs in to tilt-o-whirl. Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett talks smack on Cassidy, goes to the ring, but Kyle catches him for a SLEEPER! Bennett JAWBREAKERS free, then waistlocks. Kyle switches, hops on, SLEEPER BACKPACK! Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS!

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO!

Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

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

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

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
