PLAY BY PLAY

Ethan Page w/ Dan Lambert VS Orange Cassidy w/ Best Friends!

All Ego isn’t in any good mood after losing to Miro on the road to the All-Atlantic Championship. Will he take out his anger on Freshly Squeezed and his new theme song? Or will Cassidy, Trent, Chuck and Motor City all rock out tonight?

Lambert has the mic to say, “It’s not the size of the man in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the man! Says the 145 pound dork of a man with his hands in his pockets. I’m surprised you’re strong enough to pull those skinny jeans up. What’re you gonna do with a real-life heavyweight body slamming you all over that ring?” Lambert tells the ref to listen up. The Michigan Athletic Commission has rules and regulations, and since this isn’t an election, we’re gonna follow them! So unless those two idiots, Trent & Chuck, can show you a valid manager’s license, how about the ref does his job and tell them go be Best Friends backstage?

Fans tell Lambert to STFU but Lambert says he’s still right! The Best Friends aren’t officially managers, so they have to leave. At least their tie-dye suits look awesome. Lambert sings “Hey hey hey, good-bye~” while fans call BS but the bell rings all the same. Ethan mocks Cassidy putting hands in pockets, and says Cassidy should just go ahead and get that out of the way. Fans are thunderous for “Freshly Squeezed!” and Cassidy puts his hands up, to put them in the pockets. Ethan rushes in but Cassidy ducks, only for Ethan to throw him down by his hair! Ethan steps on Cassidy and flexes, but Cassidy kips up!

Cassidy dodges Ethan again, rolls and SHOTGUNS Ethan to a corner! Cassidy kips up again and now he flexes! Fans fire up and Cassidy says he’s gonna raise the roof. Cassidy goes to scoop Ethan but Ethan is pretty hefty. Ethan scoops Cassidy easily but Cassidy easily slips off  to waistlock. Cassidy shoves Ethan to ropes, things speed up and Cassidy hurdles, but Ethan blocks hip toss to hip toss, only for Cassidy to arm-drag! Ethan bails out, Cassidy builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Cassidy puts Ethan in fast! Cassidy goes up, CROSSBODY! Cover, ONE!! Cassidy flexes again and then says he’s gonna raise the roof!

Cassidy goes to scoop but Ethan throws down elbows! Fans boo as Ethan scoops Cassidy again. Cassidy slips off again, shoves Ethan into a corner, then runs, tilt-o-whirl- NO DDT as Ethan shoves Cassidy away then CLOBBERS him with the shoulder tackle! Fans boo but Lambert cheers as Ethan looms over Cassidy. Ethan drags Cassidy up, fans rally for “Freshly Squeezed!” but Ethan puts Cassidy’s hands in his own pockets. Ethan then throws a hard body shot, then taunts the fans. Ethan deadlift suplexes Cassidy, carries him around and then SLAMS him down! Ethan flexes again and grins while fans boo.

Ethan looms over Cassidy again, drags him back up, but Cassidy shoots around to roll him up! TWO, and Ethan BOOTS Cassidy out of the ring! Ethan wants after Cassidy but the ref keeps him back. All to plan as Lambert cracks open a bottle of OJ. Lambert gives Cassidy some sloth kicks of his own, and flexes. Lambert is having a laugh while Ethan lounges and AEW goes picture in picture.

Cassidy gets up, gets in the ring, but Ethan is right on him. Ethan ROCKS Cassidy with a forearm and has him in a corner. Ethan taunts the fans, throws down hands and stomps on Cassidy, but lets off as the ref counts. The ref also warns Lambert to stay back but Ethan drags Cassidy up. Ethan ROCKS Cassidy with another right and Cassidy falls over! Ethan trots around like he won already but it wasn’t a knockout blow. Cassidy slowly sits up at the ropes but Ethan drags Cassidy up. Ethan ROCKS Cassidy, ROCKS him again, and again! Ethan whips Cassidy to ropes to CLOBBER him! Ethan gloats while Cassidy stirs.

Ethan stomps Cassidy on his back, drags him up and bumps him off his boot. Ethan RAMS into Cassidy at the corner, and again, and again. The ref counts, Ethan lets off to reel Cassidy in for a PENDULUM BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Ethan is annoyed but he drags Cassidy up again. Ethan ROCKS Cassidy with a haymaker, then has him in the corner again. Dynamite returns to single picture as Ethan whips corner to corner. Cassidy tumbles up and out then slingshot somersaults around Ethan to run and sunset flip! Ethan stays up, drags Cassidy up, and ROUNDHOUSES him into a suplex and SLAM! Cover, TWO!

Fans fire up as Cassidy is still in this! Ethan drags Cassidy back up, Canadian Rack to a crucifix, but Cassidy reaches for his pockets! Ethan stops Cassidy from reaching all the way, but Cassidy keeps trying! Ethan stops Cassidy again, but third time is the charm! The hands are in pockets and Cassidy lands on his feet! But Ethan ROCKS him with a forearm! Ethan brings Cassidy back in, another crucifix lift, but Cassidy RANAS free! Ethan hits buckles, Cassidy shoves him back into the buckles and then table tops him! Fans fire up and Cassidy feeds off the energy! Cassidy climbs up but Lambert grabs at him! Cassidy kicks Lambert away but Ethan ROCKS Cassidy!

Ethan drags Cassidy off the top in a trophy lift! Fans boo but Ethan hits the POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!! Cassidy survives and fans fire up while Ethan is furious! Lambert tells him to finish off this grown up 12-year-old! Ethan rains down fists, fans rally for Cassidy, and Ethan drags Cassidy up. Ethan tells the kids to shut up about Cassidy, then he flips them off! Ethan says this is for the kids, then suplexes Cassidy, but he gets STUN-DOG MILLIONAIRE! Fans fire up and so does Cassidy! Cassidy wants to raise the roof, and he goes to scoop, but Ethan switches and shoves, TILT-O-WHIRL DDT!! Cover, TWO!!

Ethan survives but Cassidy throws off his elbow pad! Fans fire up and Cassidy aims, but Lambert creeps onto the apron! Fans boo, the ref warns Lambert, but Cassidy “pushes” Lambert! And “pushes,” and “pushes,” and “pushes!” Fans fire up for the “palm strikes”, Cassidy winds up, and Lambert actually puts up his guard! Cassidy just takes the orange juice from him and takes a swig. Cassidy gives it back, gives a thumbs up, but then dodges Ethan’s sucker punch! Ethan almost hits Lambert, but then he turns around into an ORANGE PUNCH! ORANGE MIST for Lambert! ORANGE PUNCH again! And then, a SLAM!! Cover, Cassidy wins!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by pinfall

Now that was fresh! Cassidy gave Ethan and Lambert some Vitamin C, and the Best Friends return to celebrate, with a group hug! GOT to give the people what they want! Will Cassidy rebound from Forbidden Door and head for some gold?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

“Nothing like being in Detroit, and nothing like Blood & Guts live on Dynamite! And here on TBS, he has a match scheduled coming up, but first, he has something he wants to say. Ladies and gentlemen, here is Christian Cage!” Fans boo Captain Charisma as he makes his entrance after what he did to Jungle Boy at the end of Road Rager. But for having a match in literal minutes, Christian doesn’t look dressed to compete at all! Schiavone isn’t sure what more Christian can say than what he said last week, fans fans boo harder.

Christian says that he was asked by upper management, if fans will give him a second to speak, that he is to come out here and apologize for the things he said about Jungle Boy and his family, namely when he brought up his late father. Christian has never apologized for anything he has said or done his entire career, but that being said, “Jungle Boy I’m sorry your entire family isn’t dead, and they had to witness me end you in that ring two weeks ago on Dynamite! Actually, let me clarify. Everyone in your family, except for your mom, Jungle Boy. Call me.” Fans call Christian an A-Hole and he has the nerve to be sarcastic back to them, “Classy as always, Detroit.”

Christian takes the mic now and says this scumbag city’s only good point is that it’s close to Canada. “Now, you Motor City sweat hogs might be wondering why I’m standing out here in street clothes when I requested a match this week. Well it’s simple. I requested a match but I never said it was for me.” And out comes… LUCHASAURUS?! Christian has turned Luchasaurus into his own personal muscle! Will the wrestling dinosaur destroy all who oppose Captain Charisma?

Luchasaurus w/ Christian Cage VS Serpentico!

The bell rings and SNAKEMAN wants mercy! Luchasaurus isn’t going anywhere, so Serpentico shrugs and runs in, into a HEADBUTT! Luchasaurus drags Serpentico into a wheelbarrow GERMAN SUPLEX! Serpentico flounders and Christian grins. Serpentico staggers up, Luchasaurus scoops him into the JURASSIC FACEBUSTER! Luchasaurus then ties up the legs and puts on his own version of the SNARE TRAP!! Luchasaurus steals Jungle Boy’s signature hold, adding on a nerve hold shoulder claw! Serpentico taps, Luchasaurus wins!

Winner: Luchasaurus, by submission

Christian celebrates with his monster. But then, he says it’s not enough. Luchasaurus drags Serpentico out of the ring! Luchasaurus waits for Serpentico to stand, and he clamps on the choke grip! CHOKE SLAM to the floor! Will Captain Charisma unleash this real-life kaiju on all of AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Wardlow and Scorpio Sky.

There is a No Physicality Agreement right now as the Maestro of Mayhem is finally face-to-face with the AEW TNT Champion. Scorpio says he understands Wardlow is “feeling himself” right now, after beating up a bunch of security guards. But Scorpio ain’t no security guard, he is the TNT Champion! Last time Wardlow came after him, Scorpio laid him out, pinned him in the ring, no questions asked. Schiavone says that actually, there was some assistance. Wardlow says yes, but it doesn’t matter. No more talk, Wardlow is getting sick of it. “Bring every member of American Top Team, I’ll treat every one of them like they are security guards.”

And when Wardlow is done with them, he’ll beat Scorpio’s ass and take that title home with him, where it belongs. Oh, talking real big with the No Physicality Agreement, huh? Well let’s do it like this! Next week, Scorpio VS Wardlow, TNT Championship. And if Wardlow’s so tough, it’ll be a Street Fight! Wardlow’s all for that! But will it be Wardlow or Scorpio who comes to regret taking the gloves off?

 

Six Man Tag: Max Caster & Gunn Club VS Danhausen & ???

The Acclaimed and Ass Boys are in Michigan, but it’s rare they make their entrance first. Even so, Caster is ready with a diss track! “Acclaimed and the Gunns, we don’t rap with no undertones. We about to beat the sh*t out of a Juggalo! Danhausen is a lightweight, how you gonna cheer a White guy in whiteface? Embarrass my brothers again, we gon make you drink all the tap water in Flint! We’ll send ya ass to the trash, boys! This is what you get for callin’ them the Ass Boys!” Wait, he always does so… Fans chant it already, and Caster gets the mic to Bowens since Austin & Colten aren’t in the mood.

“DETROOOOOIT! The Acclaimed have arrived!! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” The message has been sent, but who has the Very Nice, Very Evil overlord found as his partners? Danhausen has a mic of his own to say, “Alright, well, Danhausen heard the Ass Boys. They had some sort of challenge for Danhausen to find partners or something. And I dunno, I thought I found some people who are pretty good at wrestling. IT’S FTR!! The THREE BELT TOP GUYS, Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood, loaded up with the AAA, ROH and IWGP Tag Team Championships, are here to bring the fight! Will #FTHausen make Caster eat those words he just rapped?

The teams sort out, Austin starts against Cash and fans are fired up. Cash and Austin circle, tie up, and go around. Austin arm-drags Cash away then flexes on the corner. Fans boo but Cash cools off. Cash and Austin tie up again, Cash headlocks but Austin pulls hair and wrenches free to headlock back. Cash powers out, but Austin runs him over! Austin speeds things up, hurdles, then trips Cash! Fans  taunt the “ASS~ BOYS~” and it annoys Austin. Austin rushes Cash but Cash sends him into a corner, then back drops him on the rebound. Austin gets up, swings wild, but ends up in a BIG atomic drop!

Cash SPANKS Austin, then arm-drags him down! Austin gets up but Cash tags Dax. FTR mug Austin and then Dax bumps Austin off buckles. Dax CHOPS, CHOPS and snap suplexes! Dax drops a leg, covers, ONE! Dax drags Austin up to tag Cash back in, and then Cash tags Danhausen. Fans fire up as FTR double whip and double drop toehold Austin, for Danhausen to run and drop an elbow! Danhausen covers, ONE! Danhausen drags Austin up, but Austin CHOPS! Austin bumps Danhausen off buckles, tags Colten, and Gunn Club mugs Danhausen. Colten bumps Danhausen off buckles then stomps a mudhole.

Fans rally for Danhausen but Colten whips him corner to corner. Colten runs in but into a BOOT! Danhausen goes up for a FLYING RANA! Danhausen gives Austin a hip toss! Caster gets in but Danhausen hip tosses him! Colten CLOBBERS Danhausen! Fans boo but Colten sits Danhausen up to rain down fists. Colten keeps on Danhausen while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Colten taunts the fans, drags Danhausen over and tags in Caster. They double whip Danhausen hard into the corner and he falls back. Caster looms over Danhausen, stomps him down, then clamps on a cobra clutch onto Danhausen. Danhausen endures, flails and fights up, and he throws body shots! Danhausen is free, but he runs into a BIG elbow from Caster! Caster drops a knee, covers, TWO! Danhausen is still in this but Caster drags him to the corner. Tag to Austin and they stomp Danhausen. Austin tells FTR to “SUCK IT!” while Caster stomps Danhausen. The ref has to keep Dax back as Austin eggs him on, and that allows even Colten to stomp Danhausen.

Austin drags Danhausen up, tags to Colten, and Colten bumps Danhausen off buckles. Colten whips Danhausen corner to corner hard and Danhausen bounces off buckles. Colten drags Danhausen up, puts him back in the Acclaimed Gunn corner, and tags Caster. Caster climbs up, and he drops ax handles on Danhausen. Caster clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Danhausen down. Danhausen endures, fights up, and hits a JAWBREAKER! Dynamite returns to single picture as both men get up. Fans rally but Caster clinches and puts Danhausen back in the corner. Danhausen DECKS Austin but Caster throws body shots on Danhausen.

Danhausen throws body shots back but Caster shoves Danhausen back. Caster rushes in but Danhausen spins him around to a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Both men are down, fans fire up as they crawl, hot tag to Colten and he grabs Danhausen. Colten feeds Danhausen to Caster’s BIG haymaker! Colten then DROPKICKS Danhausen, Austin tags in to cover, but FTR breaks it! Austin protests but fans rally for Danhausen. Austin drags Danhausen up, taunts FTR, and he suplexes. Danhausen slips out, dodges Austin, hot tag to Dax! Dax JABS away then DECKS Austin! Caster rushes in but Dax DECKS him! Colten rushes in but Dax dodges, and Cash DECKS him!

Cash DECKS Colten again, Austin gets up, but FTR get one Ass Boy each, DOUBLE GERMAN SUPLEXES! They both hold on, FTR DOUBLE GERMAN SUPLEX again! And again! Fans fire up as Motor City becomes Suplex City! Cash tells Billy to SUCK IT before he CLOBBERS Colten! Colten bails out, Cash PLANCHAS him down! Dax still has Austin, GERMAN SUPLEX! GERMAN SUPLEX! Five just for Austin, but here comes a sixth! Dax fires up and so do the fans, Dax whips but Austin reverses, only for Dax to reverse back. Austin dodges to run but into a hip toss! Austin handsprings through and hip tosses, only for Dax to resist, QUICK DRAW!

Both men are down from the partially disrupted move, and fans rally up. Danhausen rises! Dax tags him in! Danhausen aims at Austin, for a BOOT! And then a CURSE~! “Good night, Austin!” Fireman’s carry, but Billy gets in! The ref stops him, but Bowens gets in! He can walk on that leg?! Danhausen drops Austin, but he powers up another curse! Bowens swings his crutch, Danhausen dodges, and Austin gets CLOBBERED! Bowens freaks out, Dax drags him out and Danhausen covers Austin! #FTHAUSEN WINS!!

Winners: Danhausen & FTR, by pinfall

FTR destroy the wheelchair since Bowens doesn’t need it anymore! Will FTR continue to establish themselves as the top tag team in the world today? The Acclaimed Gunn Club try to figure out what went wrong, but maybe they were just CURSED! Bowens helps Austin up but Austin shoves him away! Austin’s obviously upset over the crutch shot but Billy tries to keep the peace. Austin gets heated and Billy shoves him down?! Billy is upset with his son over what happened, but what does this mean for the faction?

 

Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh speak.

Sonjay starts by saying, “Last week, I was happy, Samoa Joe. This week, I’m mad! Because you’re still not at work! And we need to make things official. July 23rd, ROH returns to PPV, Death Before Dishonor! And what we need from you won’t cut it with this pencil. We need you to take this pen, black ink, sign your name on the dotted line, let’s make this official!” Lethal asks, “How long is it going to take? How long’s it gonna take for you to defend that ROH Television Championship against me? Accept the challenge! The ROH Television Championship, let’s put it on the line! The current ROH Television Champion VS the longest reigning ROH Television Champion! Let’s make it official, Joe!” Singh leans in to tell Joe, “Jay is gonna kill you, man.”

 

AEW TBS Championship Open Challenge: Jade Cargill w/ The Baddies VS Leila Grey!

The UNDEFEATED 33-0 TBS Champion is ready to get yet another win under her belt. Will Leila come to regret accepting this Open Challenge? Or will she shock the world when she dethrones #ThatBitch?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Grey can get some gold!

Grey and Jade tie up, Jade has a cording hold then CLUBS Grey in the chest. And CLUBS her again! And again, then throws knee after knee! Jade scoops, fireman’s carries, then TOSSES Grey to BOOT her down! Grey flounders, the Baddies of Detroit cheer as Jade dribbles, but runs into BOOTS! Grey leaps, but into Jade’s arms! Jade hits a FALL AWAY SLAM! Jade kips up and fans fire up as she watches Grey crawl. Jade kicks Grey, drags her up, and says she is THAT B- Grey rolls her up! TWO!! Grey fires off forearms, backs Jade down, and fires up! Grey runs in to SHINING WIZARD! Grey hits a BULL- NO, Jade tosses her! Then BOOTS her again!

Jade says Grey is stupid for trying, and then chicken wings the arms. JADED!! Cover, Jade wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

And now it’s 34-0! Stokely Hathaway gets the mic to say, “So-” But then Jade snatches the mic to say she is tired of all the fans and the women in the back bitchin’ and moanin’! “Now next time, Stokely, get me some real competition.” She shoves the mic back at him, and he says, “Wooooow~! She’s fired up, and I know why. Last night at 11:49 PM, this queen gave an opportunity to every single woman in this locker room. And y’know what happened? You wanna know what happened? Someone who doesn’t even work here, homegirl hasn’t even filled out a W2, even she had the wherewithal to seize the moment.

“Kris Statlander, Athena, you’re not overlooked. You’re just lazy!” But wait! Here comes the Fallen Goddess and Greatest Alien! They rush the ring, Kris CLOBBERS Kiera Hogan while Athena dodges the boot! Athena SHOTGUNS Jade down! Kris storms up to get Jade up and fans fire up as Athena climbs! But Leila Grey SHOVES Athena down!! Leila stomps Kris and Kiera SUPERKICKS Athena! Jade moves Leila aside to stomp Kris! Stokely gets in the ring with them, did Grey just become the newest Baddie on the block? Jade tells her thanks but hell no, and leads her team away. Will Grey use this as motivation to come at #ThatBitch again?

 

The Young Bucks speak.

Matt Jackson says, “And then there were only two.” Nick Jackson says, “You would think we would be happy, right?” Matt wonders where everyone went. Nick says they reached the Promise Land, AKA win the AEW World Tag Team Championships, not once but twice, Matt adding that they’re the first to ever do it. And yet, they’re still unhappy. All their friends are gone. Bobby Fish isn’t cleared, Kyle O’Reilly isn’t cleared, and now even Adam Cole isn’t cleared. Hell, the cameraman isn’t even Brandon Cutler! This is some intern. Good job, by the way, Fred, just keep it steady.

But the Bucks look around the locker room, and they can’t even find anyone who can relate to them. They literally have no friends left. Except… The titles! They’re the champions for good reason. The first TWO-TIME AEW World Tag Team Champions, and Matt hears that the Forbidden Door might be creaked open just a little bit. He heard Yoshi-Hashi & Hirooki Goto want a shot at the best tag team in the world. “Well, boys, you can get a shot at us this Friday on Rampage. However, you’re not gonna just get a shot at the titles. No no no. You’re gonna have to beat us one time first to prove who the heck you are.”

The Bucks now who #BISHAMON is in Japan, but we need to show the American/AEW audience that they’re the superstars they claim to be. And if Goto-Hashi loses, they can go to HELL. Nice play on words. But Matt never thought he’d miss Brandon. Cut it, Fred, ya idiot! Will the Young Bucks throw a Superkick Party and kick the former IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions back to Japan?

 

But wait! There’s so much more to Rampage this week!

On top of the AEW World Tag Team Championship Eliminator, we will see Nyla Rose VS Toni Storm 1v1 for the first time anywhere. And speaking of first times, it will be the first ever ROYAL RAMPAGE MATCH! Frankie Kazarian, John Silver, Orange Cassidy, Rush, Hangman Page, Konosuke Takeshita, Penta Oscuro, Will Hobbs, Ricky Starks, Keith Lee, Swerve Strickland, Darby Allin, The Butcher and The Blade, Dustin Rhodes, Max Caster, Tony Nese, Matt Hardy, Dante Martin and Brody King will compete for the first shot at Jon Moxley and his Interim AEW World Championship! Who wins that 5% chance of becoming a contender?

 

Jim Ross joins commentary!

Good ol’ JR is here for the main event, and as he knows not everyone is going to be okay after this main event is said and done!

Blood & Guts: The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Eddie Kingston, Santana, Ortiz & Blackpool Combat Club!

This has been building for months, and now it will all be settled in one bloody spectacle! And after winning the man-up advantage at Forbidden Door, will Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Jake Hager, Daniel Garcia, Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker win again and make the entire “AEW Galaxy” APPRECIATE them? Or will the Mad King, the Proud ‘n’ Powerful, the Decoder, the Maniac, and the newest member in the Swiss Cyborg, Claudio Castagnoli, show to everyone why they’re proud to be professional wrestlers, not sports entertainers?

The JAS also make their entrance first. They’re wearing matching red outfits of mesh shirts, suspender strapped tights and red fedoras. Will red be the perfect color to hide all the blood they’re about to lose? We’ll see, after the break.

Dynamite returns as Eddie makes his entrance with Santana & Ortiz. They’ve got the war paint on, and are even bringing weapons to the ring, such as Santana’s barbed wire baseball bat. Then William Regal accompanies Wheeler Yuta and Claudio. Regal joins JR, Taz and Excalibur on commentary, and all that’s left is Jon Moxley’s entrance! The Interim AEW World Champion, head bandaged up from what Hiroshi Tanahashi did to his forehead, makes his way through the crowd as always, and he joins his team. Sammy is already in the ring for the JAS, daring someone to get in with him. The extended BCC sorts out, and CLAUDIO steps up!

Detroit is thunderous already as the doors are closed. Sammy and Claudio stare down from across the double ring, and then rush in! Sammy jumps up but Claudio back drops him! Claudio gets Sammy up, OVERHEAD suplexes him, but Sammy lands on his feet! Sammy rushes back in, Claudio picks him up and RAMS him into a corner! Claudio whips Sammy corner to corner hard, then runs in to EuroUpper! Then he goes back the other way for another EuroUpper! And then again for another EuroUpper! Fans fire up and Claudio drags Sammy up. Sammy shoves Claudio away and undoes the suspender straps.

Sammy puts Claudio in the corner to CHOP him! But Claudio doesn’t flinch. Sammy throws a forearm, Claudio EuroUppers Sammy off his feet! Claudio rips off Sammy’s mesh shirt to CHOP him! Claudio whips Sammy into the gap between rings and Sammy tumbles with the ropes so close together. Claudio stalks Sammy to the JAS ring and Sammy tries to climb! Claudio grabs at Sammy as he clings to the rafters! Claudio chases Sammy, drags him down, but Sammy throws elbows. Claudio drops to bring Sammy down, and Sammy gets crotched on the top rope! Claudio shrugs while Tay Conti complains.

Claudio drags Sammy up, whips him to a corner, but Sammy stops himself. Sammy elbows Claudio back, goes up to springboards away to the BCC side ring! Fans boo while Sammy bows and then flips Claudio off. Claudio storms into the gap but Sammy attacks him! They brawl, Sammy puts Claudio into the corner and fires hands, but fans cuss Sammy out! Claudio shoves and EuroUuppers Sammy! Claudio TOSSES Sammy back into the JAS ring, whips Sammy and pops him up, but Sammy hits a CUTTER! Tay cheers but fans boo as Sammy stands up. Sammy kisses Tay through the cage, and then goes back to the ring, only to turn around into a trip!

Fans fire up, Claudio takes Sammy for a SWING! The countdown is done, Daniel Garcia gets in for the man-up advantage! Garcia watches out for the swinging Sammy, and he CLOBBERS Claudio from behind! Garcia fires off on Claudio, he stomps away and fans boo, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Garcia storms back up on Claudio but into EuroUppers! Garcia and Sammy mug Claudio, then Garcia facelocks Claudio while Sammy climbs. The young pillars of the JAS argue about who needs to do what, but Claudio throws body shots and EuroUppers on Garcia! Sammy hurries in but he also gets body shots! Garcia and Sammy are in opposite corners, so Claudio starts up a EuroUpper train! Garcia, then Sammy, then back to Garcia, but Garcia dropkicks the legs out! Sammy then KNEES Claudio down! Garcia and Sammy hug it out and stomp away on Claudio. They double suplex Claudio up and over, then stomp him more.

Sammy CLUBS Claudio to ropes, Garcia helps Sammy double whip to ropes. They double elbow Claudio down, Garcia hits a NECK SNAPPER! Sammy and Garcia get Claudio in a corner and bring him out again, but Claudio blocks the double suplex this time! Claudio DOUBLE SUPLEXES Sammy and Garcia! All three men are down, Garcia crawls away to the BCC ring. Claudio stalks after him, but Sammy hurries to CLOBBER Claudio! Garcia BOOTS Claudio at the ropes, then CHOKES him! And he doesn’t have to stop this time! Garcia talks trash on the BCC while Sammy chokes Claudio now, using the suspender straps he took off earlier!

Garcia takes off his do-rag and CHOKES Claudio with it! They both grind Claudio down at the ropes, taunting BCC the whole time. Dynamite returns to single picture as Sammy puts Claudio in a corner. Sammy and Garcia mug Claudio, but the countdown is almost up! Claudio fights back, and as soon as the door opens, Yuta is inside! Yuta wants after Garcia for the attack on AEW Dark last night but he ROCKS Sammy first! FLYING LARIAT for Sammy! GERMAN SUPLEX for Garcia! Yuta holds on, another GERMAN SUPLEX! Garcia swings wild but can’t get free, another GERMAN SUPLEX!

Yuta isn’t done, he hits a fourth GERMAN SUPLEX! Sammy waistlocks Yuta but Yuta shoves Garcia away to switch with Sammy. A GERMAN SUPLEX for the Spanish God! And then another! Tay gets worried as Yuta sets Sammy up, Claudio runs in, EUROUPPER GERMAN SUPLEX COMBO! Sammy is finally let go and fans fire up with Yuta’s half a dozen German Suplexes! Yuta and Claudio high-five and Claudio drags Garcia from the ropes. Claudio has the do-rag, Yuta has the suspenders, and they use those to CHOKE Garcia and Sammy! Claudio TOSSES Garcia across the ring like that! Yuta lets Sammy go to stomp him down!

Claudio hauls Garcia up to TOSS him into the steel! Yuta TOSSES Sammy into steel! But the countdown is done, and the JAS sends in Rock Hard Jake Hager! Hager rushes in and Yuta leaps at him, but into a SPINEBUSTER! Claudio chases Garcia into the JAS ring, Garcia runs but into a trophy lift! Claudio TOSSES Garcia to the BCC ring while Hager TOSSES Yuta to the JAS ring! Yuta gets hung up a bit on the ropes in the gap, but now Hager and Claudio stare down! Fans fire up, knowing these two have history. Claudio joins Hager in the same ring, and the haymakers start flying! Fans chant “WE THE PEOPLE!” as Hager whips but Claudio dodges!

Claudio springboards, FLYING EUROUPPER! Fans fire up as Claudio stomps and uppercuts Hager in the corner. But Garcia helps Hager while Sammy intercepts Yuta. Hager and Garcia mug Claudio, Yuta scraps with Sammy, but then Hager ROCKS Yuta. Hager has Yuta against the steel then RAMS into him! Hager runs again but Yuta dodges to KICK Hager! Claudio fights off Garcia but Sammy hits him back. Claudio EuroUppers Sammy while Yuta missile dropkicks Hager! Claudio bumps Sammy off buckles, Yuta fires off on Hager. Hager clinches Yuta but Claudio goes after Hager with body shots. Hager picks Claudio up for a SPINEBUSTER!

Sammy and Garcia stomp Yuta while Hager hammers Claudio. But the countdown is ending and the JAS get ready. Fans want to see him, so MOXLEY gets in! And he brings a chair! Moxley CHUCKS the chair at Hager’s head, and it bounces right off to hit the steel! Moxley then fires off on Garcia, kicks Sammy, and he stacks the young pillars in a corner to CLOTHESLINE SANDWICH them! And again! And again! Moxley brings Sammy around for an X-PLEX! Garcia tries to get away but Moxley traps him in the ropes and bends him backwards! With some fishhooks and crossface forearms for good measure!

Fans sing, “F ’em up, Moxley, F ’em up!” Moxley joins Garcia in the gap to rain down hammer fists! Claudio picks up the chair Moxley brought in and sets it down. Claudio gives Hager a BULLDOG onto the chair! Regal is loving this now as Moxley grinds Garcia’s face off steel like a cheese grater! Claudio sits the chair up and Yuta helps him bring Sammy over. They double whip Sammy and Yuta drop toeholds Sammy to SMACK off the seat! Eddie gives Moxley a fork to JAB into Garcia’s forehead!! Yuta stomps away on Hager, Claudio tosses Sammy to the JAS ring, and Hager uses the chair on Hager’s ribs.

Claudio taunts Tay with putting Sammy on the ropes and she shouts, “I HATE YOU!” He doesn’t care, Cesaro STRADDLE CHOKES Sammy on the ropes! Yuta and Moxley join Claudio, and Garcia is bleeding from the forehead. Moxley picks Garcia up for Yuta to run, they hit a HART ATTACK on Red Death! Claudio high-fives his team for that one, and then fetches Sammy. Tay is shrieking as Claudio trophy lifts Sammy, to toss him to Moxley’s CUTTER! Then Claudio drags Sammy around while Yuta climbs up top, and Claudio sets Sammy up for Yuta’s DIVING HEADBUTT! A nice shoutout to Bryan Danielson there.

Yuta keeps on Sammy while Claudio and Moxley go back to Hager. Moxley tells Claudio to fetch Garcia, and Yuta’s already working on the HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS as fans chant for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” Claudio and Moxley join in with their own HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Fans love the triple hammering, but the countdown is finishing again. JAS sends in “Cool Hand Ange” Parker, but he realizes he’s actually outnumbered right now. He stays on the outside of the ring but ends up cornered that way. Fans tell him “YOU F’D UP!” but he dodges Yuta to regroup with Garcia. That’s not enough, he grabs the chair, but then loses it as he has to scurry away!

Parker goes around a corner but Claudio catches him! Claudio gut wrench suplexes Parker into the ring! Yuta scoops Parker to MICHINOKU DRIVER, and then Moxley gives Parker a EuroUpper! Claudio EuroUppers Parker off his feet! Yuta EuroUppers, and Parker is punch drunk. Moxley EuroUppers Parker and he falls over again. The BCC shrug and Moxley gets a couple push-ups in just so he stays warm. Claudio goes back to fetch Hager and throw EuroUppers. Hager clinches and throws knees in return while Moxley throws the chair into the JAS ring. Yuta keeps on Garcia, but Parker JAMS Moxley with the chair!

Hager TOSSES Claudio into steel, Parker SMACKS Moxley on the back! Garcia, crimson mask at 100%, turns things around on Yuta while Parker RAMS into Moxley at the corner! Hager stands on Claudio, Parker helps Sammy up, and Hager has a chair of his own to SMACK Claudio’s leg! Yuta turns things back on Garcia while Hager smothers Claudio’s face with a chair. Garcia reverses Yuta’s whip to SHOTGUN Yuta into the corner! Moxley DECKS Parker, DECKS Sammy, and brings Sammy back to center. Hager SMACKS Claudio on the back with the chair! And then Hager digs the chair into Claudio’s neck!

The countdown is over, and Parker hurries to block the BCC door! Ortiz powers through and CLOBBERS Parker! Ortiz then CLOBBERS Sammy, CLOBBERS him again, CLOBBERS Hager, CLOBBERS Sammy again, then CLOBBERS Parker! Ortiz CLOBBERS Sammy a third time, then CLOBBERS Parker a third time! Ortiz whips but Sammy reverses, Ortiz comes back but Sammy dodges, so Ortiz CLOBBERS Parker a fourth time! Sammy dodges Ortiz again, but Ortiz comes right back to LARIAT! Fans fire up as Ortiz is a one man wrecking crew, and Dynamite goes picture in picture again.

Ortiz brings Sammy up to drag him up to a POWERBOMB! Yuta helps Moxley in the JAS ring but Parker then TOSSES Ortiz to that side! Hager hauls Claudio up but Claudio throws body shots. Ortiz hits Parker back, Claudio EuroUppers Hager in a corner! Yuta stands on Garcia’s neck, Moxley and Ortiz mug Parker, and Claudio RAMS Sammy into Hager! Ortiz RAMS Parker into steel! Yuta RAMS Garcia into steel! Moxley brings out a black bag! That is always a dangerous sign, and Moxley pours out broken glass! Hager suplexes Claudio while Moxley brings Parker over. PILEDRIVER onto the glass!!

Ortiz SMACKS Garcia with a chair! Ortiz SMACKS Parker with the chair! Parker is bleeding now, but of course he would from that glass to his forehead. Yuta holds Garcia down while Moxley goes after Hager and rakes the eyes! Claudio keeps Sammy down while Moxley ROCKS Hager with a haymaker. Moxley has Hager in a corner, climbs up and digs a piece of glass into Hager’s forehead! The Maniac is truly going nuts in Blood & Guts! Yuta kicks Parker around, Claudio climbs up to rain down fists on Hager from all sides! Claudio EuroUppers Hager, but Garcia kicks Claudio. Garcia and Hager CROTCH Claudio together!

Hager and Garcia shake the rope to really jam up Claudio’s junk but Moxley goes after them. Sammy goes after Moxley and now Moxley gets mugged. Sammy and Garcia double whip Moxley HARD into the steel! Hager ROCKS Claudio while he’s still on the ropes, and Dynamite returns to single picture again. The countdown is finishing as Parker crotches Yuta on ropes, and Sammy does the same to Ortiz. Now “Daddy Magic” gets in with a chair of his own. Menard SMACKS Yuta off the ropes! And he SMACKS Ortiz! And then SMACKS Claudio, and he CLOBBERS Moxley! Menard, Garcia, Sammy and Hager all stomp the Interim AEW World Champion!

Garcia SMACKS Claudio down with the chair, Parker and Menard go to the JAS ring to keep eyes on Yuta and Ortiz. Hager digs his knees into Moxley, Garcia joins Menard and Parker while they hit Ortiz with a DOUBLE DDT! Sammy brings Moxley up to snap suplex Moxley onto a chair! Moxley’s forehead is bleeding again, just like on Sunday. Hager POSTS Claudio, fans chant “We Want Tables!” while Menard CHOKES Moxley! Menard rains down fists, trying to make Moxley’s forehead even bloodier. Menard shoves Moxley through ropes to RAM him into steel! And dig him in, too! And ROCK him!

Claudio fires off EuroUppers on Hager in the gap! Yuta sees Garcia up top and SMACKS him with the chair! Claudio runs side to side but Hager manages to move and Claudio runs right into the wall! Menard throws back elbows on Moxley but Yuta’s CLAWING Sammy’s eyes! Menard spots Ortiz trying to crawl through the gap and intercepts him. Parker CLAWS Yuta’s eyes now! But the countdown is finishing again! And Eddie helps Santana get one of those tables! They put it in, and Ortiz helps bring it in. Santana gets the BAT! Santana dodges Menard, CLOBBERS Garcia, CHOPS Menard, then CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS again!

Santana CHOPS away on Menard in the corner, then brings Menard out to center for a ROLLING- NO, Menard ducks to waistlock. Garcia rushes in but Santana BOOTS him down! Santana then switches to SAIDO Menard down! Hager is digging his knee into Claudio at a corner, Garcia rushes back in at Santana, but Santana gives him an URENAGE! Eddie is watching Jericho from across the way, clearly waiting for The Wizard to finally join this fight. Wait, Santana is clutching his leg. Did he overdo the urenage and hurt himself? Santana falls back while Ortiz digs a chair into Garcia. Yuta, bleeding from his forehead, punches away on Parker’s crimson mask of a face!

Parker uses the cameraman to CLOBBER Yuta, then he RAMS Yuta into the steel! Sammy runs at Claudio but into a POP-UP UPPERCUT! Menard and Ortiz fight over the barbed wire bat, and Jericho looks worried since the time is finally approaching. Menard digs the bat into Ortiz’s face but Moxley has the FORK! Moxley JABS the fork into Menard’s head! And wait, Moxley has BAMBOO SHOOTS?! Moxley JAMS those into Menard’s head now!! Fans tell Moxley he’s a Sick F for that one, but Yuta helps Moxley stomp Menard down. Garcia puts Claudio into the ropes to pull him back, and Ortiz checks on Santana.

Menard is of course bleeding now, but he still throws punches on Moxley. Hager fires off on Ortiz, but Yuta has Parker so that he and Garcia can have some sort of sleeper hold stare down! Sammy gets back up to help Hager mug Ortiz, and Menard has the barbed wire bat! Menard digs that into Moxley’s face! Garcia and Yuta throw Parker and Claudio aside to start firing off SLAPPING palm strikes on each other! Fans fire up as they go faster and faster and faster! And then the countdown is back, and Jericho steps in! Jericho has Floyd to CLUB Claudio! Ortiz dodges and throws haymakers on Jericho! DDT!! Ortiz digs the chair into Jericho!

Parker CLOBBERS Moxley with a chair, Ortiz SMACKS Jericho with a chair, but Sammy climbs up and aims at Ortiz. Sammy leaps to FLYING CUTTER! Yuta gets Sammy with a GERMAN SUPLEX! Santana DECKS Parker, Menard rushes at Yuta but Yuta spins him around, OLYMPIC SLAM! Tay checks on Sammy while Hager hauls Yuta up for a SPINEBUSTER! Claudio spins Hager around to torture rack! RACK BOMB! Garcia roars and BLASTS Claudio with a EuroUpper! But Claudio fires up and comes back to POP-UP UPPERCUT Garcia!! Claudio stomps Garcia, but Jericho hits a CODE BREAKER!

Jericho grins as he’s the only one standing, but he hasn’t counted properly. The countdown is down, and here comes EDDIE!! Fans are thunderous as the Mad King, kendo stick in hand SMACKS Garcia then SMACKS Parker! The bell finally rings, because Blood & Guts can truly start! Which means it can finally end, too! Eddie stalks Jericho, SMACKS Menard, SMACKS Hager, SMACKS Menard more, then SMACKS Hager, too! That kendo stick is breaking, but it stays together so Eddie can go after Jericho! Jericho wants out but there’s no escape! SMACK and SMACK and SMACK from Eddie to Jericho!

Eddie tosses the broken stick, and he pulls out a bottle off… Is that rubbing alcohol? Gasoline? What is it?! Hager CLOBBERS Eddie before anyone can find out! Hager tosses Eddie into the ring, he and Garcia and Parker stomp away while Menard smothers Yuta and Sammy CLUBS Claudio. Ortiz punches Parker, he gets a chair and SMACKS Garcia, “This is Awesome!” as Ortiz fires off on everyone in the JAS! Moxley is after Garcia, Eddie gets his kendo stick back, but Tay manages to get whatever Eddie had and pass it to Jericho! But Ortiz brings the TABLE over! The BCC has the JAS on the floor, and that table makes its way to the gap.

The table is set up, Eddie SMACKS Hager into falling on the table, and Claudio EuroUppers Parker in a corner. Yuta and Moxley give Garcia their own version of DOOMSDAY!

The BCC regroup, they go after Garcia and Eddie brings Garcia around. Garcia resists but Eddie HEADBUTTS him! Garcia still resists his face touching steel, but Eddie FISHHOOKS his mouth. The BCC gather up more of those black bags, and they pour them out. It’s THUMBTACKS! And a TON of them!

The entire JAS ring has tacks, while Cesaro and Ortiz are tearing up the BCC ring’s mat! They are exposing the wood! They’re truly tearing the house down! Moxley gives Menard an X-PLEX onto the tacks!! Claudio whips Sammy but he reverses to RANA Claudio into the steel! Sammy BOOTS Claudio, BOOTS Eddie then SUPERKICKS him!

Jericho snarls and he looms over Moxley, gloating as if he’s won already. Jericho then gathers up a handful of tacks, and DIGS them into Moxley’s forehead!

Jericho paces around, again the only one standing. Jericho drags Moxley up again, TOSSES him into the steel, then fires off hands. But Moxley brings Jericho in to BITE his face! Moxley then kicks, underhooks, but Jericho fights. Jericho LOW BLOWS Moxley! And then hits a DDT onto the tacks! Jericho THRUSTS a chair at Eddie! Jericho soaks up the heat and gets Moxley’s legs. Dynamite returns to single picture as Jericho drags Moxley around in the tacks, before WALLS OF JERICHO!! Moxley endures as he’s being pushed into the tacks, but here comes Eddie! Fans are thunderous as Eddie gathers up tacks, to THROW into Jericho’s face!!

Jericho lets Moxley go as he scrambles away to the BCC ring. Eddie hurries after him, and he throws haymakers! “F HIM UP, EDDIE, F HIM UP!!” Eddie wants to do just that as he whips Jericho into the steel! Eddie hobbles around, gets the barbed wire bat, but Jericho blasts the FIRE EXTINGUISHER at Eddie! Eddie flounders away and Jericho tells Tay to do something. Tay CLOBBERS referee Aubrey Edwards?! All to get the key to the cage?! Tay unlocks the cage door and fans boo, but here comes RUBY SOHO! The Runaway won’t let Tay get away with this! Ruby drags Tay down and fires off fists! The refs try to stop these two but the ladies brawl to the back!

Jericho climbs up the cage! Didn’t he learn from the first Blood & Guts this doesn’t work out well? But Eddie laughs and he follows Jericho up! Jericho and Eddie stand up, and Eddie fires off hands! Eddie BITES Jericho’s ear, Mike Tyson style! URAKEN! Jericho falls down but he is still on the top. Sammy hurries to climb up and help Jericho as Eddie says Jericho’s going off the edge! Sammy CLOBBERS Eddie first! Sammy looks around, trying to figure out what to do next. Fans rally as the three crawl up top and everyone else is regrouping down below. Sammy stands, he digs Eddie’s face into the steel, and fans chant “A E DUB! A E DUB!”

Sammy drags Eddie up but Eddie LOW BLOWS Sammy! Eddie says Sammy F’d up, and down come the straps! Eddie TOSSES Sammy off the edge!! Sammy CRASHES down through the timekeeper’s area!! Fans lose their minds and Eddie grins. But this fight is still going as Dynamite goes picture and picture again!

Eddie looks through the ceiling to check on his team. They’re still in this, too, but medics are checking Sammy. Jericho stands up, Eddie pursues, but Jericho goes to the far side. Jericho warns Eddie, but Eddie doesn’t care, he keeps heading that way. They get forehead to forehead and the forearms start flying! Then they become haymakers, and it’s a hockey fight! Detroit is loving this! Eddie BITES Jericho again, then rips at his shirt. Eddie CHOPS Jericho, Jericho wobbles, and Dynamite goes to break!

Dynamite returns one more time, and Eddie rains down fists on on Jericho. Jericho trips Eddie to rain down fists on him, then get the legs! WALLS OF JERICHO!! Menard RAMS Ortiz into steel on the outside of the cage! The fight is spilling out of the steel, and CLAUDIO climbs! Will Claudio put away his grudge with Eddie to end this with Jericho? BOOT for Jericho, that is a yes! But here comes Menard! Daddy Magic is going to reinforce Jericho now, but Claudio has Jericho’s legs! SWISS SWING on top of the cage! Claudio goes around 10 times, then steps through, but Menard CLUBS Claudio. Menard rains down forearms, then drags Claudio up.

Menard reels Claudio in, Claudio fights the lift, and Eddie has Jericho in the STRETCH PLUM! Claudio trips up Menard, and has a SHARPSHOOTER!! DUAL SUBMISSIONS on top of the cage! Jericho and Menard endure, but MENARD TAPS!! The BCC WINS!!

Winners: Eddie Kingston, Santana, Ortiz & Blackpool Combat Club, by submission

Eddie is confused, he thought he was gonna make Jericho tap. But a win is a win because Claudio finished off Daddy Magic! Eddie is a bit upset by that, but can’t he be happy for the group? Ortiz, Yuta and Moxley are, and even Santana, despite his apparent injury. Will winning take care of the hard feelings? Is the BCC finally through with the JAS?


My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, especially with it being Blood & Guts. A great opener with Cassidy and Ethan Page, with some Hellish cleverness from Lambert getting Best Friends ejected and putting advantage back to his side. But of course, that didn’t change anything and Cassidy came out the winner. It is also good to see Chuck Taylor is still here, there was concern he was leaving AEW after deleting tweets. But with Cassidy winning, he maintains momentum and could even win his way up to one of the midcard titles. There’s history between Cassidy and PAC, so an All-Atlantic Championship feud that also helps give us some Best Friends VS Death Triangle closure would be a great move.

It was fairly clear, though perhaps a bit mind-boggling, that Luchasaurus was going to turn Heel with Christian Cage’s influence. Luchasaurus looks pretty awesome in all black gear, mask included, and of course he demolished Serpentico. Jungle Boy is apparently actually injured, not just out with the kayfabe injury from the Con-Chair-To, but that will give Luchasaurus plenty of time to shine as a singles guy and as a Heel monster, and we’ll eventually get JB VS Luchasaurus on the way to JB going after Christian.

Wardlow and Scorpio had a good promo interaction to set-up their title match, and a Street Fight is of course setting up interference. I just can’t be sure which way this goes, because Scorpio could use interference to win again, or Wardlow becomes that powerful to win even with interference. When I saw that the Six Man Tag had mystery partners for Danhausen, I just knew it would be FTR. Fans love FTR, fans love Danhausen, this seemed like a natural combination. The Six Man Tag was a lot of fun, and of course #FTHausen wins to keep momentum after Forbidden Door. And while the split in Acclaimed Gunn Club was coming, it happening because of this loss was a small surprise. Billy is siding with the Acclaimed, of course, and I can’t wait to see how this sorts out.

Jade was of course winning her title match tonight, especially because it was Leila Grey, who hasn’t even won one match during her time on Dark and Elevation. But I was hoping that with Grey helping Jade and Kiera, Grey would get a spot as the new Baddie. Instead, Jade snubs Grey, and we’ll still wait to see who subs in. At the same time, I don’t get how that promo from Stokely was supposed to work this in kayfabe. If it’s an Open Challenge, I suppose Grey answered first and that’s it, but then he pokes holes by bringing up how Athena and/or Kris should’ve answered it to get their shot at Jade. Maybe they were just overthinking the logic of their own storytelling, but maybe this story still finds its way to giving one or both Athena and Kris Statlander their title shots.

The Young Bucks had a good promo to help the audience understand that sadly, yes, Adam Cole is hurt after Forbidden Door. But with Fish kayfabe out, and Kyle and Adam more or less legitimately out, this gives the Undisputed Elite a chance to return all together and do who knows what. But Bucks calling out Goto-Hashi, they’re going to have a really good match, but I would think Bucks win because the only ones taking those belts off them are the tag team belt collectors, FTR.

And what a big Rampage we’re having, with that match, Nyla VS Storm, and then the “Royal Rampage,” which I can’t see being like the Royal Rumble with sending one man out at a time. It could just be a huge battle royal, just on Rampage, but who knows. Out of those 20, I would think Hangman doesn’t get this, his story back to the world title needs to be a bit like his journey to the top the first time. He has to scratch and claw, no shortcuts, and I would love if Hangman gets the interim belt right before CM Punk returns so the Undisputed AEW World Championship can be between Hangman and Punk in a Double or Nothing rematch. As for who will/should get this, I’d love if it was Rush for someone completely fresh, or maybe Darby or even Dustin Rhodes for a fan favorite moment.

And of course, Blood & Guts was an epic main event because it was an entire hour. Great stuff from all 12 men, as well as Tay and Ruby Soho. Sadly, Santana got legit hurt from that rough urenage, it could be a torn ACL. It sucks because Santana surely had a lot to do in this match, and it sucks because he and Ortiz could’ve gotten in on some tag title story before the inevitable FTR VS Bucks for all the belts. But even with Santana going down, everything was a bloody as it should’ve been, and what a great way to finish things. Eddie throwing Sammy off was awesome, and explains why the timekeeper’s area got so big.

I almost thought that was a sign JAS was winning, but in the end, it’s BCC. If Bryan had been in this, I bet the finish would be exactly the same with Bryan getting Menard to tap/surrender, and Eddie being annoyed by that. It’s good that Eddie gets over his beef with Claudio, for now, and while Garcia VS Yuta for the ROH Pure Championship is already on the books, there could be a lot of different things the rest of these guys do, such as Claudio getting in on the All-Atlantic Championship and Eddie still settling things with Jericho 1v1 to put the feud to bed.

My Score: 9.3/10

Zero Hour – AEW World & ROH World Trios Championships Winners Take All: The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn VS Bullet Club Gold!

Max Caster, Anthony Bowens & Daddy Ass have had it with the Bang Bang Gang! Betrayal over greed was one thing, but Jay White helped Austin & Colten break into Billy’s house, after they broke Darby Allin’s ankle! But of course, Platinum Max has a diss track! “It’s the scissor guys from the Six Man Division. We’ll hit you little p*icks with that circumcision! In America, Jay White’s just an opening act. All the fans like, ‘Yo, nobody told me he’s whack!’ I sent you right back to Korakuen Hall. You like to choke on the mic? You can choke on these balls! It’s the three man Dynasty running the game. In St. Louis, everybody loves The Acclaimed!”

Bowens wants his turn but Caster shouts out the other Max with “Cut my music, cut my music! Yo.” “Yo.” “Yo!” “Yo!” “YO!” “YO!” “Listen… Switchblade, you had to grow a beard, you got a kid’s face. Lookin’ like you hang outside of the six grade. Talkin’ to these kids like ‘I made you a mixtape!’ Your hype is all fake like the Donald Trump piss tape.” Bowens says okay, careful now, but he also says Caster can keep going. “Yo, I’ll treat you like a light, Switchblade’s what I switch. I’ll fulfill your fantasy and I’m a make you mah b*tch. Yo, this dude’s just making me sick, I’ll violate you so bad, you’ll have to tell the legal team about the taste of my-”

Okay, Bowens stops Caster there! The fans cheer Caster on, and Bowens says this was a cappella edition. But “ST. LOUIS, MISSOURRIIII~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does~! The fans all cheer, but who passes through the Gateway with all the golden gear?

“Life is all about the chase.”

“But it is what you chase that shapes a legacy. For some, it is the ascent to power. Or the revealing of true strength. For others, it’s achieving history. Or simply, to be known as The Greatest. On this night, for every chase pursued, an opportunity. For every path taken, a moment to create… a Dynasty.”

Cash takes out The Bucks, and it seems FTR’s done away with the days of “No Flips, Just Fists.” Cash puts Matt on the ladder bridge, stands him up, but Nick trips Cash up! Cash falls into the rungs, right on his Revival! The Bucks then get on the ladder, sit Cash up, E V P TRIGGER!!! Cash flops out of the ladder, The Bucks soak up the heat, and they go back to the ring. Dax is there with a ladder but Matt kicks him low! Matt bumps Dax off buckles, then throws hands.

Dax flops into the ropes, Matt and Nick coordinate again. Matt moves the short ladder aside so he and Nick can bring Dax to the ropes. They double suplex, but Cash makes the save! FTR DOUBLE SUPLEX The Bucks! Cash rallies with haymakers, then whips! Cash gives Matt a back drop! Cash whips Nick but Nick reverses, but Cash ducks ‘n’ dodges! Nick leaps but into a POWERSLAM! Cash roars and the fans fire up! Cash gets the tall ladder and he stands that back up under the belts. Cash climbs, but Matt hurries after him! Matt YANKS Cash down, climbs up, but Cash Electric Chair Lifts! Dax is up top, STEINER BULLDOG!!

Cash positions the ladder so that it pins Matt down! Cash climbs, but Nick SUPERKICKS Dax! Nick then hurries after Cash and throws hands! Cash falls off the ladder, but Dax is back to YANK Nick down, into a SLINGSHOT SITOUT POWERBOMB! But Matt SUPERKICKS Dax! Matt runs at Cash, Cash puts him on the apron! Cash runs to DIVE and send Matt down through table and railing!! Nick hurries after Dax, but Dax kicks low!

Dax reels Nick in, but Nick RANAS Dax down through a table!! Everyone is down around ringside, this is becoming a human demolition derby. Nick and Cash return in the ring, but Nick gets the short ladder to stand it up next to the other. Nick climbs both ladders and he throws hands on Cash! Cash hits back, but so does Nick! Matt and Dax are back somehow, and they go after each other, as well as after Cash and Nick! The four men brawl, grab for belts, and Cash falls! Dax DECKS Nick, but Matt SMACKS Dax off rungs! Matt reaches up but the belts are moving around! Dax shakes the ladder, pulls a shoe off, and then SHATTER MACHINE!!!

Nick crawls, he has a chair, and he JAMS Cash with it! And he JAMS Dax with it! Nick SMACKS Cash, SMACKS Cash again, then leaves him behind. Nick drags the short ladder to a corner, so he can SMACK Cash off the tall one! Nick then puts the tall ladder in another corner. Nick stomps Cash, climbs a corner to then climb the ladder, but Dax hurries up after him! Dax throws hands on Nick, Cash climbs the taller ladder! The fans fire up as we get a SUPER DUPER POWER, and a SUPER DUPER GLORY!! The fans are thunderous while all four men are down again! FTR regroup and they get the short ladder under the belts.

Dax intercepts Matt but Matt still fights around. Matt powers Dax into the ladder and tips it over! Cash HOTSHOTS off ropes, then Matt SUPERKICKS him! Matt TOSSES Dax out, but Dax trips Matt up! Dax SMACKS Matt off the ladder bridge! And again! Nick has Cash on a table! Nick goes up a corner, but Dax has Matt on the bridge! Nick 450 SPLASHES through the table!! But then Dax LADDER PILE DRIVERS!!! The bridge gives way, that’s bad for both men! The fans are losing their minds at this pure carnage! “This is Awesome!” as Nick and Dax each get out of the respective piles of wreckage. Dax gets in the ring first, and he brings a ladder around.

Dax climbs, but Nick springboards up to join him! Nick then SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMBS Dax down!! Dax is dazed while Nick goes to the ladder and climbs! But Cash is back! Cash drags Nick down, dodges a lariat, then clotheslines Nick up and out of the ring! Nick grazes a ladder that was sitting there on the apron, but he still stands back up. Cash builds speed, DIVES but through a table!! Nick avoids disaster but Cash crashes ‘n’ burns! The fans lose their minds again after seeing another human car crash! Nick drags himself back to the ring where Dax is getting a ladder up again. Dax drags himself up but Nick follows!

The fans chant “Please Be Careful!” and maybe they should’ve started with that. Nick and Dax throw hands, Nick grabs for a belt! Dax ROCKS Nick, Nick ROCKS Dax! Each man grabs for a belt, but then they throw hands again! Dax SMACKS Nick with a belt!! The fans are thunderous, but that’s because a man in a Sting mask jumps into the ring! The man SHOVES the ladder over! Security grabs him, unmasks him, and it’s JACK PERRY!!! The Scapegoat smiles and fans are losing their minds! Nick smiles, too, as he climbs the ladder, and brings down a belt! The Bucks win!!

Winners: The Young Bucks (NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions)

Jack Perry returns from NJPW, and even breaks the law, all to help Matthew & Nicholas!! The Bucks are the first THREE-TIME AEW World Tag Team Champions thanks to Jack, will the EVPs return the favor by bailing him out?

 

AEW World Championship: Samoa Joe VS Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana!

The One True King of Wrestling Television? Well, hard to argue with Samoa Joe considering he willingly gave up the ROH World Television Championship so that he could reach the highest heights. The Realest is taking aim at those same heights, and when you come for the king, you best not miss. Will Swerve hit the killshot on Joe? Or will there be no stopping Joe’s reign of terror?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who makes this their Dynasty!

The bell rings and the fans are fired up again as the two circle. “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” echo out, and the two tie up. Joe powers Swerve to a corner, grinds his forearms in, then lets off to say this is HIS house. The fans boo but Joe just smirks as he and Swerve reset. The two go again, Joe powers Swerve to another corner but Swerve turns it around. Swerve lets off slowly, but Joe and Swerve each take a testing kick.

Commentary moves aside so Joe can fetch Swerve, and Joe TOSSES Swerve back over the desk! Joe then storms around, and he starts pulling up floor mats!

Joe drags Swerve up, puts him in the ring, and the fans rally again with “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Joe paces around Swerve as he sits up. Joe JABS and Swerve falls right over! Joe taunts Swerve, JABS and JABS and JABS again! Joe JABS, JABS, JABS and he sits Swerve down in the corner! The fans boo but Joe soaks it up.

Joe goes back to Swerve, drags him up, and then HEADBUTTS! Swerve wobbles, but he comes back to CHOP! And CHOP again! Nana coaches Swerve on as he CHOPS and fires hands! Joe SWATS and then LEG SWEEPS! Swerve falls on his face and clutches his nose! Joe looms over Swerve, drags him back up, and then CHOPS him on the back! And KICKS him in the front! Then runs to FLASH ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Swerve hangs in there and the fans rally up. Joe clamps onto Swerve with a neck wrench. Swerve endures as Joe tries to twist his head off. The fans continue to rally, Swerve fights around, but Joe throws him down!

Joe mockingly applauds so the fans boo. Joe chuckles, then he kicks Swerve. Swerve kicks from below, Joe kicks again, repeat! Joe then throws down a punch! Swerve goes to ropes, Joe CHOPS him! And CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! ROLLING ELBOW! Joe snapmares Swerve, then drops a knee! Cover, TWO! Swerve shakes his head and the fans rally up but Joe keeps cool.

Swerve runs, but into an ELBOW from Joe!

Swerve tumbles out of the ring, Joe goes out after him, and Joe throws body shots. Joe throws more hands, then clotheslines! Swerve ducks, Joe’s arm hits POST! Swerve gets in the ring, Joe hurries to the apron, but Swerve HOTSHOTS that bad arm! Swerve peels away the padding on the crossbar, and then gets Joe’s arm for a HANGING ARMBAR!

St. Louis explodes with excitement! The Gateway City has become the gateway to history as The Realest finally has this championship! And the first African American AEW World Champion at that! The purple confetti and all sorts of pyro goes off as Swerve celebrates with the fans! Whose Dynasty? SWERVE’S DYNASTY! Long Live the NEW King of Wrestling Television, long may he reign!


My Thoughts:

An awesome event for the first-ever AEW Dynasty, especially with that main event. Awesome stuff from Swerve and Joe as always, and of course a great win and crowning moment for Swerve. He’s been MLW World Champion but no offense to MLW, Swerve has been waiting a long time for a world title of this level. He did great in NXT though never getting THE NXT Championship, it was unfortunate that Vince could not figure out a damn thing to do with Hit Row, and even Swerve’s early days in AEW were hit and miss. But Swerve never gave up, he won the fans over, and now he has his moment, I’m sure Dynamite this Wednesday will greet him with “You Deserve It!”

I did skip most of the Zero Hour stuff because it’s on YouTube for free, and because that’s just an extra hour AEW needs to really trim down. If AEW is going to be doing their own 12 PPVs a year, they gotta start streamlining things, realizing some things are better for TV like Collision or Rampage and only the most important stuff needs to be here. Though I will say, great to see Mike Sydal with Matt, and then Trent goes and destroys them both for the fun of it. Chuck Taylor made the save, Trent acts like Chuck’s the one in the wrong, can’t wait to see those guys have it out. And great stuff for Cassidy & Shibata as they won, I wonder if those two stick together as a tag team.

I did still cover the Trios title match because that’s some big stuff. That’s like the one match that was still PPV preshow worthy cuz it’s certainly important. I guessed right that Bullet Club Gold was winning, but I’m surprised they didn’t cheat. But hopefully they do what I was also thinking, Bang Bang Gang needs to be part of AEW programming like Collision but also part of ROH weekly programming because they are the trios champions of both promotions now and Tony Khan needs to remember that. ROH is prerecorded, sure, but just edit in a backstage segment from tonight into ROH this week so that at least they’re on the episode.

I didn’t expect the Continental Championship to open but it was an awesome match to start us off. I figured Okada would win, but I like the sneaky way he used the ref against Pac to do it. Then combined with The Bucks winning the tag titles, we have a new Golden Elite. That Ladder Match was a little scary, though, especially when it ended up following a scary moment to end Bryan VS Ospreay. Cash also didn’t really sell getting crotched on the ladder and taking an EVP as much as he should’ve. But then, with all the foreshadowing, of course Jack Perry returns to screw FTR over and help his new friends in The Bucks. Forbidden Door may not be until June but I’d love if Jack brings House of Torture around, we get a weird alliance of HOT and Elite going towards that PPV.

Speaking of that Bryan VS Ospreay match, that was an absolute epic, but I’m unsure what to make of the finish. Bryan’s faked bad neck and such before, so maybe he was acting here for story. Ospreay is happy he won but worried he overdid it with Bryan, that could be another thing that tears him away from the Don Callis Family. Meanwhile, great Six Man Tag of House of Black VS Edge, Briscoe & Eddie. They did a great job with the black mist spot leading to the finish, great win for House of Black and I would think this gives us Double or Nothing’s TNT Championship match, Edge VS Malakai.

Following House of Black with more House of Black was a natural move, and Willow VS Julia felt rather quick. There was rumors that Julia has been nursing an injury so they probably made this a quick win to spare her from getting any more beat up. But at the same time, of course it was going to be Willow VS Mone for Double or Nothing. They were teasing that things could still change in the next month, but I feel like if Julia had defenses along the way and didn’t lose, Willow can have defenses along the way and not lose. If Mone wins, Willow’s reign will be short, but if she gets two or three defenses in beforehand, the reign won’t look weak. At least, that’s how it’s supposed to look, we all have different opinions on what builds a reign.

On the flipside, AEW kinda fast-tracked us to title matches for Roddy VS Kyle and Hook VS Jericho. They didn’t have to shoehorn turns to then shoehorn more matches onto this card, but Tony Khan seems to have pacing problems. Roddy of course won in part thanks to Wardlow, and then unfortunately, Jericho won to prolong this feud. But y’know what? Kudos to Hook taking a baseball bat as the finish. A good detail in the International Championship was Cole frowning at Wardlow. Feels like with how Wardlow almost messed up his distraction, he’s on thin ice with Cole and any misstep will get him a superkick and then kicked out of the Kingdom.

Great Women’s World Championship match out of Toni Storm and Rosa, great looks from both their gear tonight. Storm of course had Mariah May there to help, but logical move for Deonna to go after Mariah. Storm retaining made some sense, she’s just too good as this character and the fans love her so much. I’m still sticking by my idea that Mina Shirakawa is gonna come around to this title because of her connection to Mariah and how Mariah will have to choose between her two mentors. Storm can retain the title but lose Mariah so that then Mariah and Storm battle for the belt, maybe at All In London 2024.

My Score: 9.2/10

Jon Moxley speaks.

“Well, things just got more interesting next week. The IWGP Championship will be on the line for the first time ever on Dynamite. That is one hell of a powerful cellphone you have there, Mr. Callis. Hey, I wasn’t planning on losing anyway, and I like playing this game better when the stakes are high, while the clock is clicking down to zero, when there’s no room for error, when it is truly do or die. My hand only gets steadier. I was born for these moments. But hey, let’s say next week in Jacksonville, I get struck by lightning. Will Hobbs shocks the world. From Oakland to Tokyo, new IWGP Champion, what a story that would be. If you like fairytales.

“And Don Callis would sit right next to you on the plane on the way to Japan, he’ll sit right next to you in the press conference. But has he truly been where you’ve been? Does he truly know you? Who you are and where you come from? I do. And I will be in the ring with you next week, not Don Callis. I’ve always known you’ve had something in here, Hobbs. I’ve always known. Next week, if you haven’t found that thing inside you that I talked about… It’s not about championships and contracts and fancy cars, that comes later. If you haven’t found it in the week I have given you, I will find it for you.

“Next week on Dynamite, what I’m gonna give you is a gift. I’m gonna show you who you really are. But that gift is going to be a bitter pill to swallow. Hey, this is pro-wrestling, anything can happen. So take this advance: don’t hesitate for one second, cuz I won’t.” The Maniac has issued his final warning, but will the Powerhouse write history with his own two hands?

 

High Flying Fatal 4 Way Elimination Match: Rob Van Dam VS Lee Johnson VS Isiah Kassidy VS Komander!

Today is 4/20 and you know what that means! RVD is ready to fly! But so are Big Shotty, Brother Zay and the AAA Cruiserweight Champion! It all comes down to who lasts longest, so who will have the last laugh on Rampage?

The bell rings, the fans rally for “R V D! R V D!” RVD stands on the corner to get everyone to join in on a “ROB! VAN! DAM!” Then RVD and the others approach, feel things out, and then RVD dodges everyone to hop up on a corner. The fans cheer and even the others have to appreciate the savvy. But then Zay taunts Johnson, and he tells Komander that he’s not high enough to see him. Zay kneels to be more Komander’s size, but then Komander and Lee DOUBLE DROPKICK! Zay tumbles away, Komander rolls Lee up but Lee slips free. Lee rolls Komander up, ONE! Lee arm-drags but then Komander arm-drags!

The fans rally, Lee drags Zay up into the dragon sleeper, but Zay CLAWS the eyes! Zay rolls Lee and holds tights! Zay ELIMINATES Lee! The fans boo with how Zay did it, but Zay soaks it up. We’re through the first phase, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Zay again mocks RVD with more “BRO! THER! ZAY!” then he goes out to fire off on Komander! Zay SMACKS Komander off the apron, puts him in the ring, then SMACKS RVD off apron, too! Zay follows after Komander, and CHOKES him with his towel! Zay kicks Komander around while the ref reprimands, but Zay whips Komander to ropes. Zay CLOBBERS Komander, mocks RVD and soaks up more heat. RVD gets on the apron, Zay SHOTGUNS him back down! Zay talks trash on RVD, drags Komander up, and Rampage returns to single picture. Zay ROCKS Komander, fires off hands at the ropes, then whips.

Komander holds ropes to stop himself, then he BOOTS back! Komander then dumps Zay out hard! The fans rally as RVD returns, but Komander dodges to dropkick the legs out. Komander brings RVD up in a corner, goes corner to corner and forearm SMASHES! The fans boo and rally up for RVD, but Komander goes side to side, to go up and up and ARIHARA MOONSAULT onto Zay! The fans cheer that, though! Komander puts Zay in, but then RVD is there to kick Komander! RVD reels Komander in, gets him up, but Komander RANAS free! Komander goes to the apron, springboards and SWANTON BOMBS! Cover, TWO!

Zay stays in this, with Quen coaching him. Abrahantes rallies for Komander, as do the fans, and Komander goes back up a corner. Zay rises, Komander tightrope walks, but Zay trips him up! Komander falls to the apron, RVD returns, and now Zay wants to make amends? Zay says it’s for 4/20! RVD says okay, hook him up. Zay checks his pockets but then checks his shoes.

Yuka Sakazaki VS Emi Sakura!

The Wrestling Magical Girl was called out by The Professor of Pro-Wrestling to step into the “Deeb Dojo.” Will Yuka be ready for such a test after taking on the Queen of Joshi? Or will Emi prove it’s still 100 years too soon for Yuka to think she’s at that level?

The bell rings and Emi fires off on Yuka already! Emi stomps Yuka around, brings her up, but Yuka ROCKS Emi! Emi still gets around to roll Yuka up, TWO!! Emi hurries to underhook, TIGER BOMB, and high stack! TWO!! Yuka escapes again but Emi whips. Yuka holds ropes to block, so Emi CHOPS! Yuka still blocks, so Emi CHOPS again! Emi whips but Yuka reverses! Yuka kicks low, fires up, and the fans are with her. Snapmare roll and KICK! Then Yuka runs to SLIDING LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Yuka hurries to put on an STF! Emi endures, even as Yuka thrashes her around! The fans rally, but Emi BITES Yuka’s hand!

The ref reprimands, Emi lets off, and Yuka kicks her. Emi wrenches to BITE the hand again! The fans boo but Emi lets off. Emi eggs Yuka on, Yuka kicks and fires forearms! Yuka runs, goes up and up and then cartwheels to avoid Emi! But then a slip on the apron sends Yuka to the floor! Emi hurries out after Yuka, brings her around, and CHOPS her against the desk! Emi holds up one of the AEW action figures, fakes throwing it to fans, then wags her finger. The fans boo but Emi grabs some WOOOOO energy drinks. The ref says no, takes those cans and throws them down, and he checks on Yuka. Yuka’s able to walk on the bad leg, so the ref tells Emi to go into the ring.

Emi argues with the ref, stalks Yuka instead, Yuka unaware as she even starts running on the leg. Emi blows past her, just to show off her cardio! Yuka tries to chase Emi now, but Emi CLAWS Yuka’s face! The ref reprimands, Emi slides in and then slides back out. Emi whips Yuka at the apron but Yuka TIGER FEINT KICKS! The fans fire up with Yuka as she runs, to RANA Emi! Emi sputters, Yuka shakes out the leg, and she gets Emi in the ring as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Yuka storms in, paces, then runs up, but Emi dodges. Emi comes back to CHOP! And CHOP! Emi brings Yuka around, bumps her off buckles, and then soaks up the heat. Emi CHOPS again, and CHOPS again, then brings Yuka around again. Emi CHOPS Yuka in another corner, then CHOPS her again! Yuka drops to her knees, Emi taunts her and she taunts the fans, and the ref again checks on Yuka. Yuka hobbles, Emi CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Emi makes it the don-don CHOP, don-don CHOP of We Will Rock You! Emi fires up, sings the song, then runs in to CROSSBODY in the corner! Yuka falls, Emi cocky pins, TWO!

Emi is annoyed, but she waits on Yuka to stand. Emi fakes the chop to poke Yuka in her eyes! The ref reprimands but Emi is having fun at Yuka’s expense. Yuka staggers around, into a dragon sleeper! Emi digs her elbow into Yuka’s ribs as she grinds her down! Yuka sits on the mat, flails and reaches out, but she seems to be fading as Rampage goes to break!

Rampage returns and the fans fire up with Yuka as she has Emi down! Yuka goes to the apron, climbs the ropes, but Emi trips her up! Emi then runs to CROSSBODY Yuka off the apron! Emi drags Yuka up while fans boo, and Emi sits Yuka against the steps. Emi blows a kiss, then runs in, to CROSSBODY against the steps! Emi is all fired up, and she drags Yuka up. Emi gets Yuka in the ring, underhooks, but Yuka fights! The fans rally for Yuka as she still fights, but Emi still hits the BUTTERFLY BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Emi is upset but the fans fire up! Emi goes up a corner, waits on Yuka to rise, but Yuka flops over!

Emi laughs and “sips tea,” but then Yuka gets up to GAMANGIRI! Yuka puts Emi in the ropes, waistlocks, and SLIDING GERMANS!! The fans fire up as Yuka crawls her way to the cover, Yuka wins!

Winner: Yuka Sakazaki, by pinfall

It was a grittier win than even the Magical Girl is used to, but it’s proof she’s not just sunshine and rainbows! But will she have to dig even deeper if she wants to pass the Professor’s test?

 

Angelo Parker is here!

The fans cheer Cool Hand Ange, and this is an “AEW Rampage Exclusive,” recorded just after Dynamite. Parker gets the mic to say that the last year of his life has been a roller coaster, both professional and personally. A few months ago, he had to walk away from his mentor, and that meant losing a family along the way. But he had gained the love of his life, too. The fans cheer for “RUBY! RUBY!” Parker says unfortunately, some of his actions caused him to lose that, too. Going into his match on Rampage last week, it was a must-win. The only thing he had left was beating Zak Knight, and then he lost. So Parker went home, did a lot of thinking, and he reflected on a lot of things.

When Parker started this, the only thing he wanted to do was make his dad proud. He isn’t with us anymore, but Parker is sure that he’s made his dad proud. The fans cheer that, too! Parker thanks them for that, and says after the year he’s had, he also realized that he doesn’t have a lot left to fight for. So, he is out here to announce his… Fans say “NO! NO! NO!” and then Ruby Soho is here! The Runaway has a mic of her own and the fans cheer as she goes out to the ring to join Parker. Parker is as surprised as anyone that she’s here, but she says she can’t let him do this. She is emotional as she says it breaks her heart to hear him say he has nothing left to fight for.

Ruby is out here right now to tell him he has something very, very important to fight for. The fans like where this is going. Ruby tells Parker that… she’s pregnant! The fans go wild and Parker is having a hard time registering that. Ruby knows this is so soon, that they really only just started this, and that she disappeared on him, but she didn’t know how else to tell him. Parker KISSES Ruby! The fans cheer as Parker and Ruby are now going to be parents! They both say, “I love you!” and embrace again. Destination Unknown no longer, congratulations on this wonderful moment!

 

Six Man Tag: The Undisputed Kingdom VS Kyle O’Reilly, Rocky Romero & Matthew Menard!

Roderick Strong is still AEW International Champion, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett are still ROH World Tag Team Champions, and they’re willing to do anything to stay that way. That’s why the Savior of the Backbreaker started losing his mind knowing that his friend, #CombatKyle, of all people, thought he could lose the title at all. Roddy stabbed Kyle in the back over it, but will Kyle kick Roddy right in the face? Or will he and his new friends, Azucar & Daddy Magic, end up losing to Kyle’s old friends?

The trios sort out and Bennett starts against Kyle. The fans fire up for Kyle, and he dares Roddy to step up. Roddy says okay, and he tags in. Roddy says Kyle made this happen, and he circles with Kyle. Roddy then dodges Kyle to tag back to Bennett. Bennett and Kyle tie up, Bennett headlocks, but Kyle powers out. Bennett runs Kyle over, things speed up from there, and Kyle hits a kitchen sink knee! Kyle brings Bennett up, wrenches an arm, KNEES it, then wrenches again.

Bennett runs in, but Rocky dodges and The Kingdom avoids a collision!

Rocky UPPERCUTS Bennett, UPPERCUTS Taven, then fires up. The fans are with him as he whips Bennett, but Bennett reverses. Rocky RANAS but Bennett blocks! Taven joins in, ROCKSTAR SUPERNOVA! Tag to Roddy and he gets Rocky up to send him into the corner. Roddy CHOPS Rocky, CHOPS him again, then tags Bennett. Tag to Taven, the Kingdom get Rocky up, ASSISTED URENAGE, CATAPULT into the GAMANGIRI, and then Taven goes up to ELBOW DROP Rocky down! Cover, TWO! Rocky survives that undisputed combination, but Taven brings him up to CHOP as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Taven has Rocky in the corner, he talks trash on fans, then CHOKES Rocky! The ref counts, Taven lets off and “apologizes,” but Bennett CHOKES Rocky now! Menard is mad, the ref keeps him back, and Taven digs his boots into Rocky. Tag to Bennett, he stomps away on Rocky, then soaks up the heat. Bennett mocks Kyle, drags Rocky up, and CHOPS him!

They mockingly hold Rocky’s hand out to Kyle, then stomp Rocky down! Cover, TWO! Bennett clamps onto Rocky’s arm and grinds it with a mounted armlock. Bennett then SLAMS the arm down, stomps it, and tags Taven. Taven stomps Rocky around, then snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Taven clamps onto Rocky with a chinlock of his own, tags Roddy in, and they mug Rocky with knees.

Roddy ROCKS Rocky to a corner, kicks at Menard, then bumps Rocky off buckles. Roddy lets The Kingdom CHOKE Rocky, but the ref sees that! Roddy uses that distraction to sucker punch Kyle! Roddy taunts Rocky, kicks him around, and brings him up. Rocky CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Roddy shoves as Rampage returns to single picture, then blocks a kick! Roddy ducks the enzigiri, brings Rocky around, but Rocky still REWIND HEELS! Both men crawl, Taven tags in first! Taven gets Rocky’s legs and brings him back to LARIAT!

The fans fire up and Kyle hits the BRAINBUSTER!! Cover, TWO!! Bennett survives, only to end up in the ARMBAR!! Bennett taps, Kyle’s team wins!

Winners: Kyle O’Reilly, Rocky Romero & Matthew Menard, by submission

It was #ARMageddon here in Peoria, so the Savior of the Backbreaker better be careful! Kyle gets the mic to shout at Roddy, “You got about 24 hours, pal. So take all the pics with that belt that you can. Because in about 24 hours, I’m gonna rip off your arm, smack you around with it, and leave St. Louis the NEW AEW International Champion!” The fans are fired up for that idea, but Roddy shouts “NO! NO!” Will Roddy find a way to avoid the end of his reign? Or will the Violent Artist establish his own Dynasty?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage, even with it following up Collision. Though with that, Moxley’s promo to open made sense, he had to react to facing Hobbs in a title match now. But as I said for Collision, Moxley VS Hobbs for a title now just makes it clear Moxley’s winning. Great Fatal 4 Way, though it was pretty clear RVD was winning out. And really good match from Yuka VS Emi, but it was concerning after Yuka took that spill. And it was certainly more shoot than work because of how the cameras were looking away or keeping focus on Emi just in case Yuka was hurt. But Yuka seemed find enough to finish, so good on her. Yuka VS Deeb should be a really good match because of the differences in style.

Really good main event in another Six Man Tag. Kyle, Rocky & Menard get a really good win but that pretty much means Kyle loses in the title match. And if nothing else, it’ll be because Wardlow shows up to clobber him when the ref is distracted. But then we got a great moment that wasn’t even about wrestling but about the wrestlers. Parker and Ruby are having a baby, this news came out on like Thursday or Friday but great to have the announcement on air so all fans can join in. Again, congratulations to Parker and Ruby, seems like that’s a couple that’s meant to be.

My Score: 8.6/10
