The Young Bucks VS The Lucha Brothers!

Matt & Nick Jackson may not have beat The Hardy Boyz at Double or Nothing, but they did get the fall in Dynamite’s star studded 10 Man Tag. And bigger still, it was on AEW World Tag Team Champion, Jungle Boy! Will one more win be all it takes for the Bucks to head back for those titles? Or will Penta Oscuro & Rey Fenix usurp all that momentum for their own?

The teams sort out and Matt starts against Penta. Fans are thunderous for “A E DUB!” already and the bell rings. Nick throws his shirt at Penta, Fenix storms in but the ref has them stand down. Matt and Penta stare down, fans rally and duel, and Penta has everyone hold on a moment. “Listen! CERO! MIEDO!” He pie faces Matt with it, so Matt throws up the Elite! He pie faces Penta back, so Penta swaggers up to him, “CERO! MIEDO!” “THE! ELITE!” Penta takes off the glove, tosses it in Matt’s face! Penta blocks the superkick, Matt avoids the slingblade but Penta kicks low! FEAR- NO, Matt slips out and kicks low!

Fans are thunderous and Nick soaks it all in. But Fenix puts Nick on the apron, shoulders in and sunset flips, but Nick holds the ropes to deny the bomb! Nick slaps Fenix away, backflips off the apron and whips Fenix. Fenix tiger feints, Nick ducks, both men avoid roundhouses and slide in to ROUNDHOUSE! Both men are down, but then they both kip up!

The ref reprimands all four of them for these illegal holds! Everyone lets go at 4, Fenix bails out but Nick PENALTY KICKS him down! FLYING RANA for Penta, too! But Fenix tilt-o-whirl scoops Nick for a BACKBREAKER! Matt PLANCHAS but Fenix dodges! Fenix ROLLING CUTTERS! Fans are electric all over again as Fenix puts Matt in. “This is Awesome!” as Fenix aims from a corner. Fenix climbs, FROG SPLASH onto knees!

Matt tags Nick, Rampage goes picture in picture, and Nick hobbles over to Fenix. Nick drags Fenix up, reels him in and suplexes, but Fenix knees free! Matt spots Jurassic Express in the crowd and tells them to stay put. Fenix trips Nick, gets the legs, Penta goes up top! QUE PASO! Cover, TWO!! Nick survives but Penta KICKS him in the leg! Nick hobbles, Matt taunts Penta but Penta focuses on Nick. Penta KICKS Nick’s leg out! Fans fire up as Penta brings Nick around. Penta reels Nick in as Fenix goes up, “CERO! MIEDO!” Tag, tuck, but Nick wrenches out to CHOP! Nick hurdles Fenix to SUPERKICK him!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Matt adds insult to injury by wearing the stolen mask! The Bucks take this win and celebrate with their fans, but will the Bucks be able to do the same to Jungle Boy & Luchasaurus should they meet for the titles?

 

Ricky Starks & “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs VS ???

Team Taz’s Absolute Powerhouses may not have won the AEW World Tag Team Championships, but they’re ready to take out their frustrations on their opponents tonight. Will Starks & Hobbs fight their way back up to get another opportunity?

Hell, they don’t even wait for a bell! They just swarm ??? and ??? and beat them down! Hobbs throws out ??? while Starks stomps away on ???!

Winners: Ricky Starks & Will Hobbs, by pinfall

The Absolute Powerhouses dominated whoever the hell those two guys were and head back out. Will they be heading back up towards the tag titles? And who will be champions by the time they get that golden opportunity?

 

Athena VS Kiera Hogan w/ The Baddies!

The Fallen Goddess is All Elite, and while she’s after Jade Cargill and the AEW TBS Championship, she has to climb up the ranks. But will she rise like the moon and eclipse the competition? Or will Kiera bring the fire on behalf of #ThatBitchShow?

The bell rings and Athena circles with Kiera. They tie up, Athena arm-drags Kiera but Kiera kicks low. Kiera headlocks, Athena powers out and things speed up. Athena hurdles but Kiera ROCKS her with a right! Kiera talks trash, runs, but Athena catches the crossbody for a pop-up fireman’s carry! Kiera arm-drags free but Athena handsprings through! Athena dusts herself off and eggs Kiera on. Things speed up again, Athena springboards to CROSSBODY! Cover, ONE, and Kiera bails out to regroup with The Baddies. Stokely tells her she’s got this, but Athena builds speed. Athena slows up as Kiera steps aside, then she DIVES from the apron!

Athena dusts herself off again as fans fire up. Athena puts Kiera in, she stares down Jade and calls her out, then she goes back to the ring. Athena dodges Kiera, KNEES her in, then springboards, only for Red Velvet to trip her up! The ref missed that as Kiera was claiming injury, and fans boo as Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in. Kiera runs to step up and LEG DROP! Cover, ONE!! Kiera is upset but she KICKS Athena in the back as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Kiera drags Athena up, bumps her off buckles, then CHOPS her! Kiera brings Athena around to bump off more buckles, then KICKS her down!

Kiera talks trash, stands on Athena’s neck, and counts along with the ref to let off at 4. Kiera drags Athena up, Athena throws body shots and shoves, then gets around to waistlock.

Kiera bucks the roll-up but Athena sweeps the legs! Oklahoma Roll, TWO! Athena runs in but Kiera CLOBBERS her! Cover, TWO! Kiera is frustrated but she wraps Athena up in a chinlock. Athena endures, fights up, but Kiera throws her down! Keira stomps Athena, and stomps, and stomps, and stomps some more, as Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and both women are down after a collision. The ref counts, Kiera gets up first but fans rally behind Athena. Athena gets up now, Kiera runs in but Athena dodges! Athena comes back to SHOTGUN hard! Then mule kick, front kick, ENZIGURI! Fans fire up with Athena and she runs corner to corner, handspring forearm! Snapmare and then Athena goes to the corner! Athena goes up, but Velvet hurries over! Athena BOOTS Velvet away, but Kiera YANKS Athena down! The ref reprimands over Velvet’s interference, but Kiera goes up to FLYING RANA! Kiera then runs in to BOOT WASH! High stack, TWO!!

Kiera is frustrated but the fans fire up. Kiera drags Athena up, fisherman, but Athena wrenches out. Kiera dodges, Athena dodges, ROLLING ELBOW! Athena goes up a corner but Kiera hits ropes to trip her up! Kiera ROCKS Athena with forearms, climbs up after her to give more forearms, but Athena DECKS her! Athena adjusts, aims, ECLIPSE!! Cover, Athena wins!!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall

Velvet and Stokely assure Jade, that won’t happen to her. But the undefeated champion still looks a bit worried. Will the Fallen Goddess ascend and take Jade’s throne from her?

 

The House of Black speak.

Malakai starts by saying, “Members of the House of Black, please rise.” The others walk out from the shadows, and that includes Julia Hart! Malakai says for some of you, this may seem too good to be true, but this is what it means when he says the House always wins. Julia joining them wasn’t a stroke of luck but a carefully executed plan that paid attention to each and every detail. Julia adds that it was “executed through the laws of violence towards man. So celebrate! Isn’t this what you wanted? For these are the fruits of your labor.” The House disappears into the night, when and where will they strike next?

 

CM Punk is here!

The Best in the World is the NEW AEW World Champion after Double or Nothing, but he doesn’t look as happy as you might expect. There have been some rumors since Wednesday and Dynamite’s Six Man Tag alongside FTR. His walk is a little hobbled but he makes it to the ring and he gets the mic. He already looks emotional while fans chant his name. “When I got here earlier today, I pulled up tot he arena, and every bone in my body was screaming at me to turn around, go home and go hug my wife and Larry. And when I say ‘every bone in my body,’ I mean even the broken ones.

“But my brain told me to stay, and my gut told me that everybody here live deserved an explanation, so here I am. I said since I stepped foot here in All Elite Wrestling that I was gonna wrestle and give you my all until the wheels fell off. Well, I got good news and I got bad news. Which one do you want first?” Fans sound pretty divided on that, but Punk says the last thing he’s ever wanted to feel is that he has let the fans down. The last thing he’s wanted to do is leaving us disappointed. So hopefully thus far, he hasn’t made us feel that way.

“I have loved every single second I have been in this ring. Every single time I’ve been in this ring in front of all of you has been a gift I never thought that I would be able to ever experience again.” Fans are starting to realize what this might be about, but all the more reason to chant for Punk. “Okay, here’s the bad news. Bad news is, I’m injured and I need surgery. A couple of things are broken, the biggest of them, my heart. Because I love nothing more than performing for all of you. I wanted to go on one hell of a run. That’s the bad news.

“The good news is, I can still do all that. I told you I was gonna go until the wheels fall off. Well the wheels are still there, they haven’t fallen off. It’s just that one of ’em happens to be broken. But I’ve come back from worse. I’ve felt better than I feel today. But I am here to tell you that I’ve also felt a hell of a lot worse. This is a bump in the road. It hurts, it hurts like hell. I wanna wrestle for you, I wanna wrestle right now. But that being said, let’s talk about this title. Let’s talk about being AEW World Champion. I told Tony before being out here that I don’t want to hold this place up. There is a long laundry list of talent in the back that can fill my shoes, that can be champion.”

Punk means guys like Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley. He won’t be in anyone’s way. He told Tony Khan he’ll relinquish this title, and Tony told Punk that he believes in CM Punk. And Tony believes this is a bump in the road. Punk needed to hear that. Fans chant his name again and he gets choked up again. Punk says sometimes, he gets a little down on himself and the doubt creeps in. That doubt can ruin anything, but being in front of the fans, he’ll promise this. The doubt won’t creep in and ruin anything.

“And the get back will be bigger than the setback! I’m champion for a reason, and I’m gonna show you exactly why. I will come back bigger, faster, stronger and hungrier than ever before! And gaddammit, I will prove exactly why I am the Best in the World!” Punk gives up the belt for the greater good of AEW, when and where will we see the Best Comeback in the World?

 

Rampage returns and Mark Henry talks with the main eventers.

He asks Dante Martin about his comment where he thinks he’s better than Scorpio Sky. Yes, he did say that. He thinks it, but that is going to turn into “I know,” because with Matt Sydal watching Dante’s back, he’ll be the NEW AEW TNT Champion! Sydal tells Scorpio that he better have learned something from those killers on American Top Team, because he’s gonna have to kill Dante to hold onto the title. They’re the best high-fliers, they dive flying or die trying! And tonight, you’ll see what they’re saying.

Ethan Page counters with, “Learn from those killers? You didn’t watch Double or Nothing, did you? We are the killers.” Dan Lambert says Dante has been on a tear lately, and is one of the brightest stars on the roster. But he’s still a big question mark, and if the Queen had balls, she’d be the King. But you’re looking at the only king on TNT. Scorpio says that for someone who talks about peace, love and pro-wrestling, suddenly Sydal now talks a big game. Can he back it up? Dante can have peace, love and pro-wrestling, because Scorpio will take “Genie” any day.

So Mark Henry, please hit your line, because Scorpio can’t wait another moment to walk down that aisle and kick this kid’s teeth down his throat! Well then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event!

 

BREAKING NEWS!

In light of Punk’s news that he must leave, AEW Dynamite this Wednesday will open with a Battle Royal. The winner faces the current #1 Contender, Jon Moxley, in the main event, and the winner of that goes on to Forbidden Door in a match to crown an INTERIM AEW World Champion! Who cashes in on such a huge opportunity?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Scorpio Sky w/ Ethan Page & Dan Lambert VS Dante Martin w/ Matt Sydal!

The Closer returns home to SoCal to defend the gold and his win streak, but he could be up against the fastest and most agile opponent he’s had ever! Will Scorpio hold onto the gold in the last of purple ‘n’ gold? Or will his reign soon take a Nosedive?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we’ll see if the king can keep his throne!

Scorpio and Dante circle as fans rally up. They feel things out, Scorpio puts Dante in a corner as fans chant for “S C U! S C U!” Ethan tunes it out because that team is done, and Scorpio resets with Dante. They feel out the grapple, each man gives a testing kick but Scorpio’s stings more. Dante stays up but he’s being cornered. They tie up, Scorpio headlocks, but Dante powers out. Scorpio runs Dante over, but things speed up. Scorpio runs Dante over again, things keep moving, and Scorpio runs Dante over again! Scorpio flexes and fans fire up. Scorpio offers Dante a hand, but then leaves him hanging. Dante blocks the stomp to spin and headscissor!

Dante gets up to arm-drag Scorpio around, and he has the armlock! Fans applaud the exchange and Rampage goes picture in picture. Scorpio fights his way up, Dante whips him to a corner, then Dante runs in. Scorpio blocks the flip, puts Dante up top and DECKS him to the floor! Sydal checks on Dante but Scorpio goes out to fetch him. Scorpio RAMS Dante into the apron! Then ROCKS him with another right! Dante staggers around the way but he comes back with fists of his own! Scorpio ROCKS Dante, puts him in, but Dante KICKS his leg. Scorpio fires off body shots and he RAMS Dante into a corner for more shots!

The ref counts, Scorpio lets off and backs away. Scorpio takes his time soaking up the cheers and jeers but Dante ROCKS him with a right! Scorpio trips Dante, rains down fists from all sides, but Dante anchors a foot! Dante trips Scorpio to give back the ground ‘n’ pound! Scorpio digs his fingers into Dante’s face! The ref reprimands, Scorpio lets off but is seething. Scorpio gets up, brings Dante into a chinlock and digs his knee into the back. Dante endures, Sydal rallies the fans, and Dante fights up. Scorpio snapmares and KICKS Dante in the back! Scorpio still has to sit down to catch his breath, but Scorpio gets up again.

Scorpio clamps onto Dante to bend him back with the chinlock, but Dante endures again. Scorpio pulls Dante’s nose and then gets the chinlock in deep! Dante endures being bent back against Scorpio’s knee and the fans rally up again. Rampage returns to single picture, Dante fights up and throws body shots! Scorpio hits back with a forearm but Dante hits him back with one. Scorpio throws another forearm, but Dante fires off a flurry! Dante whips, Scorpio reverses but Dante flips up and over! Then SHOTGUNS Scorpio out! Dante builds speed to spring up and FLY! HUGE crossbody takes out Scorpio at the ramp!

Fans fire up and Dante gets Scorpio up and in. Dante watches Ethan, but then jumps right up to the corner! And then up again, to hit a HUGE missile dropkick! Cover, TWO! Fans rally behind Dante, he goes to the corner again, but Lambert gets on the apron! The ref argues with Lambert while Sydal is also on the apron across the way. Dante goes to springboard but Ethan trips him up! Dante still lands safe on the apron, and Sydal FLYING KNEES Ethan down! Dante springboards cleanly this time, but Scorpio catches him to a fireman’s carry! T K- NO! Dante slips off, and then he fireman’s carries Scorpio! To STEAL TKO!! Cover, TWO?!?!

Fans can’t believe it, least of all Dante! Scorpio goes to a corner, Dante gets up and he runs in. Scorpio puts Dante on the apron but Dante GAMANGIRIS! Dante goes up, leaps, CROSSBODY! Scorpio rolls it to a cover, TWO!! Both men getup, Dante leaps to DOUBLE STOMP Scorpio! Cover, TWO!! Dante is growing frustrated but Sydal coaches him up. Scorpio gets to ropes, shoves Dante away, then pops Dante up to HOTSHOT him! Fireman’s carry, T K O!! Cover, Scorpio wins!

Winner: Scorpio Sky, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

The Face of TNT is still Scorpio, but Angel Dorado sure gave him one hell of a fight! Who steps up next to try and take his crown?


My Thought:

A great Rampage to follow up both Double or Nothing and Dynamite from this past week. However, a bit bittersweet with Punk giving us the news of his injury. Thankfully it is an injury he can recover from, which he will, and it seems there is no vacating the title, only that there will be an interim champion like they did for the TNT Championship when Cody couldn’t defend it that one time. A Battle Royal, followed by a match with Moxley, which then leads to a match at Forbidden Door against I’m assuming Hiroshi Tanahashi since he wanted a match with Punk. A very good plan put together so quickly, I can’t wait to see who wins to be interim world champion.

Then we got a PPV level tag team match to open tonight, holy crap Young Bucks VS Lucha Brothers here was an all-timer. It was also a good detail to have the tag champs, Jurassic Park, and the Hardys both in the crowd. Hardys beat Bucks, I feel like Bucks can’t say they’re #1 contenders until they win in a rematch. Or they give us another Triple Threat Tag match that just burns the house down at like Forbidden Door or All Out. The squash match from Team Taz on those jobbers we didn’t even get introduced to was actually pretty fun for that reason: they didn’t let those guys get introduced. Team Taz is going to stay strong in the Tag Division, they can be waiting in the wings after things sort out with Jurassic Park, Bucks and Hardys.

Very good AEW in-ring debut for Athena with Kiera Hogan, and I think this is one of Kiera’s first televised singles matches in a while. But Athena was of course going to win, she can’t just be brought in and be chumped out. Athena is of course aiming for Jade, but Athena will probably beat Velvet next, maybe face some other great Heels, and then we see Jade VS Athena at either a Summer special like Road Rager or Fyter Fest. I can’t see them trying to stretch this to All Out, fans are going to want this match before that and AEW should do everything they can to actually get more time for their women’s division.

Good promo from House of Black, the logical next step is Varsity Blonds trying to ask “Why Julia Why?” and they just get destroyed by like, not even Malakai but just Brody and Buddy. At the same time, House of Black needs to get going towards titles, so Face-Heel dynamics be damned, give me Malakai VS Scorpio for the TNT title! We got a great TNT Championship main event, but of course Lambert and Ethan interfere and that more or less allows Scorpio to win. Scorpio did have a bit of a hobble but I’m pretty sure he’ll be fine. He should be ready to take on just about anyone, he should take on just about anyone, the TNT Championship is no longer isolated to Cody’s story and Scorpio cut out Sammy and Kaz after Double or Nothing, let’s get on that workhorse championship run!

My Score: 8.9/10

AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Claudio Castagnoli VS Brody King!

The Swiss Superman is ready for his Collision with the King of Death! But with both men at 1-0, who, if either of them, moves on to be Blue League’s only 2-0 leader?

The bell rings, 20 minutes is ticking down, but Claudio and Brody run in to RAM shoulders! Claudio BOOTS, Brody BOOTS, and Claudio fires a forearm! Brody forearms back, fans fire up as the shots keep going! They pick up speed with those forearms, Brody CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Then he LARIATS! Claudio stays up!? Claudio seethes and fans fire up as he comes back to CHOP! CHOP! And CHOP! Claudio LARIATS, but Brody stays up! Brody LARIATS, Claudio LARIATS, repeat! Claudio rebounds, DOUBLE LARIATS collide! Neither falls, they DOUBLE LARIAT again, and again, then Claudio dodges! DOUBLE LARIATS finally take both men down!

Fans fire up as Brody and Claudio roll out opposite ends of the ring. Claudio and Brody stand back up, the ring count climbs, but both men storm up around the way to DOUBLE LARAIT! And DOUBLE LARIAT! The count is 9, both men slide in at 9.9!! Fans fire up as Brody and Claudio start throwing forearms again! Brody gets the edge, runs, and he BOOTS Claudio down! Brody then scoops Claudio but Claudio slips free to BOOT! Claudio scoops, to SLAM Brody! Fans fire up, Brody staggers back up and Claudio runs, to clothesline Brody up and out! Fans fire up, Claudio goes out and he runs in around the way, UPPERCUT!

Fans fire up more and Claudio drags Brody up. Claudio whips Brody hard into railing, but Brody comes back to CLOBBER Claudio! Fans fire up as Brody peels the bumpers off the railing, then he throws forearms with Claudio. Brody knees low, whips, and Claudio hits railing hard! Claudio tumbles up and over and Collision goes picture in picture.

Brody catches his breath, storms over to where Claudio is, and drags him up. Fans fire up as Brody suplexes Claudio to the floor! Both men writhe, but Brody storms up on Claudio to stand him up. Brody CHOPS and Claudio sputters! Brody CHOPS again! Claudio staggers back, Brody whips him hard into the apron! Brody CLUBS Claudio, stalks him as he hobbles, then POSTS Claudio! Claudio staggers and falls over, and Brody refreshes the ring count. Brody storms back up on Claudio, ROCKS him, then puts him in the ring.

Claudio goes to another corner but Brody CLUBS him! And CHOPS him! Claudio UPPERCUTS! Brody CHOPS! Repeat! Brody gets the edge as he ROCKS Claudio again, then CHOPS him down! Claudio leans against ropes as he coughs and gasps for air. Brody clamps on with a chinlock, digs his forearm cast into Claudio’s face, and Collision returns to single picture. Claudio endures, pries the hold open, and he stands to wrench the arm, for an ELBOW BREAKER! The forearms fly again, Claudio runs but Brody scoops to SLAM! And then SENTON! Fans rally up while Claudio crawls to a corner.

Jon Moxley speaks.

“If it turns out that entering this Continental Classic tournament was a bad idea, I won’t find out ’til it’s too late. I’m banged up. Maybe the last four years is finally catching with me, because nobody’s done it anywhere in the world like I do it the last four years. My head hurts, my neck hurts, my back hurts, now my knee hurts. Getting that tingly-ness in my fingers now all the time. I live in pain on a day to day basis like most people couldn’t even imagine. Now on top of that, my head’s not screwed on straight all the time lately. The doctors are prescribing me this medication, that medication.

“And I’m just sick of it all. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. I’m sick and tired of being pissed off at my body failing me, I’m sick and tired of being depressed, I’m being sick and tired about being pissed about the entire last year. I’m sick and tired of being pissed off. So I’m gonna do the only thing I know how to do, the only thing I’m good at: I’m gonna wrestle my way out of it. I’m gonna fight my way out of it. I’m gonna put every ounce, every drop of sweat and effort and will I have into winning this Continental Classic tournament.

“This kind of thing, this is what AEW was built on, man. Two guys in the ring, the best wrestlers in the world, giving it their all, feeling that feeling when you’ve given every ounce of yourself in the ring, and pushing the limits, and pushing the boundaries, and making people stand up and go ‘Oh my God!’ What’d I just see?’ Feeling that connection with an audience that loves wrestling as much as we do. That is what AEW is about. Somebody’s gotta step up and win this tournament, and show the world exactly what AEW is, exactly what All Elite Wrestling can be! And that’s just gonna have to be me.

“Because anybody can say what they want but I’m the Ace of the World, b*tch, and that’s just the way it is. And there is nobody in this tournament that can do anything to me worse than what I deal with on a daily basis. Nothing they can do to me that’s worse than fighting the demons that I fight on a daily basis. If you think I’m shot, if you think my trigger’s been pulled, if you think I’m ripe for the picking, please, please, take your shot.” The Maniac is going to go until he can’t go any more, will El Toro Blanco look to take that shot this Wednesday?

Backsatge interview with Samoa Joe.

Alex Marvez says the last time we saw Joe, he was furious that MJF accepted a tag team challenge from “The Devil of AEW.” Joe says why wouldn’t he be? But then someone shouts “SAMOA JOOOE~!” In rolls Roderick Strong & The Kingdom. Roddy tells Joe that Roddy is willing to forgive Joe for trying to end his career with a broken neck not just once but twice. And he knows Joe has his world title match with Max, but c’mon, this is clearly a trap! MJF is the Devil! But hey, Roddy’s best friend “ADAAAM~!” likes Joe and thinks of him as a friend. So as Adam Cole’s best friend, that makes Roddy a friend to Joe.

So hey, Wednesday, it’s a set-up. Those goons will beat the crap out of Joe! And MJF isn’t even here right now! He’s probably plotting how they’re gonna do it! The Kingdom says yeah, Roddy’s right. So just listen to him, okay? Joe chuckles and leaves. Does Joe think they’re joking? Between Joe and “The Devil,” who will have the last laugh on Dynamite?

We saw this showdown before when CJ Perry was recruiting clients, and we saw which way that went. But then will history repeat itself? Or will Red Death ruin Andrade’s start in the Blue League?

Winner: Andrade El Idolo, by pinfall (gains 3 points; Garcia earns 0)

Andrade’s first tournament match is his first win! Garcia is 0-2, Menard says this is a hole they’ll have to dig out of. Andrade still shows Garcia respect, but is Garcia going to be mathematically eliminated before long?

 

Willie Mack speaks.

“See, Wardlow, I know you’ve been going through a lot of things these past few weeks, putting your hands on people. But one thing you know about me is you don’t put your hands on my friends. Y’see, this is a person who I’ve tagged with and won multiple tag team championships in other promotions with. So what I’ma have to do, is I’ma have to reach out and touch you. So next week, we’re gonna have to do the damn thing in the ring, so guess what? You better pack a lunch, because I’m a big boy, and I’m a big meal to try to eat.” Mack is standing up for AR Fox, but will the Return of the Mack end up Wardlow’s newest victim?

 

The Kingdom w/ Roderick Strong VS The Iron Savages w/ Jacked Jameson!

Backstage interview with Ethan Page.

Lexi Nair is with All Ego, who has requested this time. Ethan says that ever since losing out on the AEW World Championship to MJF, in his home country of Canada, Ethan has had to regroup and refocus. He’s gotten into the best physical shape of his life, he has been in ROH building up win after win. And so, here Ethan is to make a challenge and check off a bucket list thing. AEW is going back to Canada, and Ethan wants to be THE biggest name in Canadian wrestling. So therefore, to be the King of Canada, he needs his crown. That crown is currently on someone else’s head.

So in Montreal, 1v1, we find out who the best Canadian wrestler truly is, as Ethan calls out KENNY OMEGA! Will The Cleaner give All Ego that opportunity?

 

AEW hears from Willow Nightingale and Mercedes Martinez.

The Babe with the Power tells Mercedes, “our history goes further back than you probably even realize. I’ve been such a fan, and I’ve admired you so much.” The OG Badass says the first time they met, Willow “was this night little pretty Willow.” Willow says she is constantly disappointed in Mercedes’ behavior as of late, and in herself because she hasn’t been able to beat Mercedes. Mercedes asks how many times must Willow dance her way into Mercedes’ business? Isn’t Willow tired of being everyone’s hero? Next time they meet, Willow will need to be saved. Because Mercedes will dance and stomp all over her.

Another Collision, another sweep for the Dark Father and his family. The lights go down, but why? The House is already here. But here comes FTR! Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood storm down to the ring bathed in the magenta light! Malakai tells them that before they do anything, Malakai assumes that they’re both here because they are joining the House. Dax chuckles but Malakai says he is a family man. And we know it’s been weeks. The only people in AEW that have been here for the both of them has been The House of Black. Malakai’s done a lot of things, but not once has he told a lie.

The fans chant “HOUSE OF BLACK!” and Malakai drops the mic for FTR to take. Dax picks it up, but Buddy KNEES him down! Cash goes after Buddy but he gets mugged!

Backstage interview with Toni Storm.

Renee Paquette is with “Timeless Toni,” bringing up last week as Storm accepting the AEW Women’s World Championship, and Storm says yes, she knows, she has no time for these prepared questions. And where is “that man who usually does my interviews? He has so much more poise.” And she isn’t even finished doing her hair because they were too busy with some blonde floosy! And yes, Storm did accept her championship last week, Renee was a dear for presenting that. But Storm was unceremoniously interrupted by Skye Blue!

Storm tells Skye that if she had any advice at all, it’d be to walk backwards! The only time anyone has anything nice to say about Skye, it’s in reference to her bottom! Is Storm supposed to be worried because Skye’s all spooky now? With that little thing on her head? Storm used to wear hats and be spooky. BOO. See? Not that hard. Interrupt her, fine. She can be first to challenge for “this little huckleberry right here.” But until then, chin up, chest out, and oh… she’s bare foot. Sorry. She takes RENEE’S shoe to throw around! Toni is timeless, but will the Storm strike down Chicago Skye?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

Well first, she sighs. “Toni, I have met you through every single one of your phases, but this little midlife crisis your going through is the most pathetic I have seen thus far. But you haven’t met this Skye Blue. So bring your little butler, bring your little blond bimbo, and whatever 1940s black ‘n’ white crap you got up that robe, because none of it is going to stop me from taking that championship from you. So I’m gonna have my chin up, my chest out, and I’m gonna shove your shoe right up your ass.” Strong words from a fired up challenger, will she be the new leading lady of AEW?

 

Christian Cage speaks.

Captain Charisma says, “I don’t think it’s any secret to anybody how far back my relationship with Adam Copeland goes. I think I more or less tolerated Adam. He was a hanger-on, he wanted to be like me, which is why he’s always tried to steal my spotlight wherever we’ve gone.” And that held Christian back. Edge got what he never got. He was pushed all the way to the bottom when they broke up as a tag team. But Christian willed himself to the top. he is here to be the best, anyone else is expendable. And Edge wants to take away everything Christian’s built up the last three years? Christian has nothing to prove to himself, but Edge has everything to prove to Christian.

This time, Christian is what everyone talks about. Whether it’s Dynamite, Rampage or Collision, Christian nis on the tip of everyone’s tongue. He is the Face of TNT, the Face of AEW, then, now and forever! Christian has always been better than Edge, and in Montreal, everyone will finally know. But will “The Patriarch” be the one in for a shock when things get Rated R on Wednesday?

 

El Hijo Del Vikingo VS Kip Sabian!

The AAA Mega Champion is coming off a big trios win last night on Rampage, but Mr. Superbad just thinks of him as the most overrated wrestler on the AEW roster. Will Kip put his money where his mouth is? Or will he be on the losing end of this Collision?

The bell rings, the two circle, and they feel things out. They tie up, Kip cording holds but Vikingo whips. Kip arm-drags and holds on, but Vikingo goes up and over!

Kip falls, Vikingo drags him to a drop zone and goes up the ropes from the outside. INSIDE-OUT PHOENIX SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!! Kip survives and he manages to smile about it.

Winner: El Hijo Del Vikingo, by pinfall

The AAA Mega Champion cools off Kip’s hot take, because no one who can do what Vikingo did in this match is “overrated!” But Vikingo does show Kip a sign of respect by offering a handshake. The fans cheer to shake hands, but Kip says no! Will Kip ever get over himself? Will Vikingo earn even more gold in the New Year?

 

Backstage interview with Keith Lee.

Lexi is with the Limitless One, and says last time, he mentioned “him.” Just who is “him?” But then in walks Shane Taylor, because he knows who “him” is! Because Keith ain’t dumb enough to look past Shane. But last year’s match didn’t solve anything, so this year, they give the people the fight they really wanna see. Keith VS Shane, 1v1, Final Battle, so Shane can beat Keith’s ass in front of the entire world! Keith thinks on that a moment. Challenge accepted. And see #TAIGASTYLE later, too. Then in two weeks, in Garland, Texas, will that truly be the Pretty Boy Killers’ Final Battle?

 

Backstage interview with CJ Perry.

Lexi and CJ are outside Andrade’s office, and notes that Andrade’s first win was impressive. UH OH, here comes Miro! Miro says move, CJ says no! Miro can’t go in there! She knows he thinks things will go poorly, but when Miro chose his god over her, she has to prove herself. By Andrade winning, it will help CJ. So if Miro wants to go in there, fine, he’s a grown man. But if there is any love left for CJ, do not do this. Do not lay a hand on her client. Please? Miro says if His God was still with him, he would be in this tournament and have ripped Andrade’s spine out already! Miro then caresses CJ’s face, and says he won’t touch her client. She has his word.

Miro storms off, but what will The Redeemer do to prove himself worthy of gold in the background of the Continental Classic?

 

AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Bryan Danielson VS Eddie Kingston!

The American Dragon was the first entrant named to this tournament, but could not compete in it until now. And he doesn’t think The Mad King is ready if one loss takes away all the confidence he had going into this. Will Bryan just pour fuel on that fire? Or will Eddie be the one to earn his first points tonight?

The bell rings and we’re on the clock. The fans fire up as Bryan and Eddie stare down. They slowly circle and approach. They feel things out, knuckle lock, but then Eddie tests things with a kick. Bryan stays back, they reset, and Eddie guards a kick. Bryan keeps trying but Eddie pushes back. Bryan uses ropes as a defense and the fans boo. Bryan smirks as he and Eddie reset, and they test the waters again. Bryan gives kicks, Eddie walks it off, and they feel things out again. Eddie fires off hands, clinches Bryan on the ropes, and the ref counts. Eddie puts Bryan in a corner, the ref counts but Bryan turns things around.

Bryan lets off slowly, but then CHOPS! Eddie just snarls while fans “WOO~!” Eddie storms up on Bryan, they feel things out, and Eddie tries some kicks now. Bryan also kicks, neither man lands a strong shot yet. They end up in a corner, Bryan turns things around on Eddie, then he CHOPS! Eddie CHOPS Bryan down! Fans fire up as Eddie stares Bryan down again. Bryan stands, he and Eddie feel things out again, and fans are behind Eddie more than they are Bryan. The two grapple, Eddie rolls but Bryan facelocks. They go to ropes, the ref counts, and Eddie fights up. The ref gets in between but Bryan KICKS Eddie!

Bryan fires off fast hands but then so does Eddie! Bryan kicks, but then Eddie kicks the bad arm! Bryan falls back, Eddie storms up but Bryan trips Eddie! Eddie goes for knuckle locks but Eddie’s leg guard keeps him back. Bryan KICKS a leg, KICKS again, then KICKS again! Bryan KICKS Eddie in the back! Bryan sits Eddie up to CHOP! Eddie eggs him on! Bryan CHOPS again, but Eddie brings the straps down! Bryan CHOPS again! Eddie is stinging but he grits his teeth. Bryan KICKS! And KICKS! And then snapmares to cover, ONE!! Bryan keeps on Eddie with a motorcycle stretch but Eddie endures.

Fans rally, Eddie fights up, but Bryan digs his forehead into Eddie’s shoulder blades. Eddie still turns things around to have Bryan in the stretch! Bryan endures, powers up, and waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Eddie stands up but then falls back over! Eddie goes to the apron, shakes out the stars, but Bryan runs in to BOOT him! Eddie holds onto ropes! Bryan runs up again to BOOT! Eddie still holds on, and he CHOPS! And CHOPS! Eddie swings, Bryan ducks to dropkick the legs out! Bryan then builds speed to slide, but Eddie avoids him! SAIDO to the floor! Fans fire up while both men are down, and Collision goes picture in picture!

The ref checks both men, and both men are somehow still in this. Eddie shakes out his arms as he sits up, and he drags Bryan up. Eddie CHOPS Bryan, then follows him around the way. Eddie CHOPS Bryan against railing! Eddie puts Bryan in the ring, stalks him, but Bryan bails out the other side. Eddie pursues, and CHOPS! And HEADBUTTS! Bryan staggers away, Eddie follows, and Eddie CHOPS Bryan against commentary! And again! And again! Bryan flounders, Eddie puts him in the ring, and Eddie storms up in the corner. Eddie stands Bryan up to MACHINE GUN CHOP! Bryan sits down, Eddie CHOPS him again!

Eddie digs his boots in, the ref counts, but Eddie lets off. Eddie drags Bryan up, and puts him up top for another CHOP! Eddie then climbs up after Bryan, brings him up, but Bryan resists the suplex! Bryan throws body shots, then he HEADBUTTS Eddie down! Eddie comes back to CHOP! Eddie CHOPS again, and Collision returns to single picture. Eddie CHOPS one more time, climbs up after Bryan, but Bryan again resists the suplex! Fans fire up as Bryan throws down elbows again and again! “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan HEADBUTTS again and Eddie staggers away. Bryan adjusts, MISSILE DROPKICKS, and down goes Eddie!

Eddie flounders to a corner and the fans rally up. Bryan huffs and puffs and rises up. Eddie also stands, he CHOPS Bryan! Bryan throws body shots! Eddie CHOPS! Bryan fires body shots! CHOP! Bryan KICKS and KICKS, but Eddie CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! EXPLO- TAKEDOWN! Bryan has an arm, then grabs at the crossface! Eddie resists, fights around, but Bryan still gets the LEBELL LOCK!! Fans rally for Eddie as he endures, fights around, and reaches out! Bryan rolls Eddie back, and has the LEBELL LOCK again! Eddie fights around, pushes Bryan down and he fires down forearms as fans fire up!

Bryan CHOPS and SLAPS from below! Eddie SLAPOS and CHOPS in return! And then some more! They go shot for shot, and then Eddie rains down more forearms! Eddie hauls Bryan up, half nelsons, but Bryan arm-drags free! Bryan runs in, but Eddie dodges the knee to SAIDO!!  Bryan stands, into the URAKEN!! Eddie falls on the cover, TWO!! Bryan survives and fans fire up! Eddie stands, drags Bryan up, and suplexes, NORTHERN LIGHTS BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives and fans fire up again! Both men are down, a standing count climbs, and Eddie sits up first. The count is 5 of 10, Eddie stands up!

Eddie storms up on Bryan, drags him up and reels him in, but Bryan resists the lift! So Eddie fires KNEES to that bad eye! Eddie reels Bryan back in, but Bryan back drops free! Bryan aims, BUZZSAW! Bryan huffs and puffs and the fans fire up! Eddie sits up in a daze, Bryan aims again, to KICK! And KICK! And KICK! “YES! YES!

Bryan aims again, to KICK! Eddie shoves Bryan, so Bryan KICKS again! Eddie CLUBS Bryan, Bryan KICKS, KICKS and KICKS! We get the five minute warning as Eddie throws hands! Bryan has the leg again, BRIDGING BACK SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Eddie escapes but Bryan says time to kick his head in!! DRAGON STOMPS!! “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan runs out of gas but somehow Eddie is still in this!

Bryan and Eddie crawl to each other, Eddie FLIPS BRYAN OFF! “This is Awesome!” as Eddie rises. Bryan aims from a corner, BUSAIKU KNEE!!! Cover, BRYAN WINS!!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall (gains 3 points; Eddie earns 0)

THIS is the fight Bryan wanted from Eddie! But in the end, Bryan is the one to win the fight! Will Bryan keep on going through his next four fights? Eddie is technically still ROH World & NJPW Strong Openweight Champion, but with an 0-2 start, has he all but lost them both?


My Thoughts:

A great Collision, with awesome Continental Classic matches, but also matches they kayfabe’d as “standby” to try and kayfabe the tournament matches not going closer to their 20 minute time limits. A weird move to me but it’s not like we haven’t seen such a move by American televised pro-wrestling before. And surprisingly great stuff out of Vikingo VS Kip, but that was partly the point. Kip calls Vikingo overrated, then gets beat by Vikingo to show how legit Vikingo is, and there could even be a rivalry in the making or something. Kip still has Butcher & Blade to call on, that trio could take on Vikingo, Komander & Penta at some point.

Good match from Abadon and Kiera, with a really good win for Abadon. Julia showing up to basically call Abadon out was an interesting move but I also like it. Different kinds of spooky wrestlers are going to collide, this will be a good program for them both. And very good promos from both Storm and Skye to hype up their title match this Wednesday. Renee definitely looked like she was struggling to not break during Storm’s part, that’s how good Storm is. And I would think Storm retains because she’ll have Luther and Mariah May ringside. And good promo from Willow and Mercedes to set up their match, that’ll be really good stuff.

Good promo from Willie Mack to call out Wardlow but I would think Wardlow beats him to continue his dominance. Good promo from Christian to add some final hype onto the TNT Championship match. And good promo from Ethan Page to not just plug his time in ROH, but also to call out Kenny Omega. Ethan VS Omega is going to be really good, but that probably ends up being Omega’s win to build momentum going into the next round against Don Callis Family. But it also just makes me think Tony Khan still doesn’t get how ROH is supposed to matter. Ethan is in the middle of stuff with Tony Nese and he’s dividing his attention by wanting to be King of Canadian Wrestlers? What?

But thankfully, we did get a promo from Keith Lee and Shane Taylor to finally set up that match. And I do appreciate that it will be part of Final Battle since that’s where this feud started. Anything to make up for poor ticket sales and no ROH World Championship. Or even tag team championship at this point, right? The Kingdom called out MJF but MJF hasn’t taken the time to respond, he has The Devil of AEW to worry about. Good promo from Joe with Roddy & The Kingdom before The Kingdom beat The Iron Savages. Roddy was extra dramatic in his floundering out of the ring this time, can’t wait to see whether he and The Kingdom are still in on the whole Devil goon squad stuff.

Very good tag match from House of Black VS Daniels & Sydal but of course the House won. And good promo with FTR that then turned into a beatdown. That tag match is definitely going to be big for like Winter is Coming. And then, the Continental Classic. Great opening match from Claudio VS Brody, with a great win for Brody to lead the way in this block. And just as I expected, while we got awesome showings in the other matches, Garcia and Eddie each lost to Andrade and Bryan. Good promo for Miro wanting after Andrade but showing mercy for CJ’s sake. That feud probably waits until after the tournament, assuming Andrade isn’t a finalist. Worlds End would be a good PPV for Miro VS Andrade to happen as part of this ongoing story.

I also appreciated Eddie saying he doesn’t want to do cold open promos when he has a big match to get ready for. Doing coverage like I do, I don’t want to fall behind on the broadcast already trying to keep up with what people are saying at the very start like that. Even Claudio did a short promo because he also just wants to have his match, so they really should just have the matches and save promos for later in the night.

My Score: 8.8/10

The ref reprimands but the Dark Order & X-JAS get the edge. They all have someone in a corner, then they all coordinate to quadruple whip!

And then Best Friends set up in the corners… and Hook needs to be coaxed a little bit, for the GROUP- NO, they all get kicked low! Fans boo as X-JAS & Dark Order reel them in, but the Best Friends QUADRUPLE SUPLEX!

Fans fire up because now we get the GROUP HUG! You GOT to give the people what they want! Hook then goes after Parker with body shots, but Menard storms up.

Yuta joins commentary while Menard bumps Hook off buckles, and reels him in for a big suplex! Tag to Parker and he stomps Hook down. Parker stomps more, then pushes Hook around. Parker tags Uno, they mug Hook. Uno then bumps Hook off the boots of Menard and Reynolds.

Reynolds tags in, he runs side to side to ELBOW Hook! Uno SPLASHES, short arm LARIATS, and Reynolds covers, TWO! Reynolds stands on Hook’s head, fans boo but the Dark Order and X-JAS soak up the heat. But Hook clinches! Reynolds fights with forearms, then he bumps Hook off buckles.

Parker CLUBS Hook down, then stomps him. Parker taunts the Best Friends, flicks his hair gel at them, then goes back to Hook. Parker CLUBS Hook, tags Uno, and they mug Hook some more. Uno scrapes his laces on Hook’s face then tags Parker back in. Parker stomps Hook, but Hook powers Parker back! They end up on ropes, Parker KNEES Hook back! Parker then BLASTS Cassidy off the corner!

Rampage returns to singe picture as Parker goes after Hook, and Hook gets around to NORTHERN LIGHTS! Parker tags Menard but Hook LARIATS Menard down!

Only to get STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy keeps moving but Uno BOOTS him! Uno hooks Cassidy up, for SOMETHING EVIL! Cover, Trent KNEES it apart! Fans fire up, Reynolds BOOTS Trent! Reynolds runs in to BOOT Cassidy in a corner! Reynolds puts Cassidy up top!

Reynolds ROCKS Cassidy, climbs up, but Trent runs up to get Reynolds! SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Cassidy adjusts, and Danhausen tags in! But so does Menard!

Winners: Orange Cassidy, Hook, Danhausen & Trent Beretta, by pinfall

Not only is X-JAS furious, but Yuta says this is unbelievable. But will the Decoder have to worry about the much more Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts & Anna Jay.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya, Ruby Soho & The Star of the Show to say they are teaming up for the first time in Six Woman Tag action. Saraya says yes they are, and sorry for cutting Renee off, Renee knows Saraya loves her, but… Isn’t Anna just the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? Ruby sighs and Saraya says “Liza Minnelli” is in a time out so shush. Anyway, Saraya thanks Anna for teaming with them, Lord knows they’ve needed some extra help around here. And also, they do have something in common that is giant, greasy, irritating, and needs to be handled. Oh, speaking of, here it comes.

Parker walks in, apologizes for not being here sooner, and then says hi to Ruby. But uh, yeah, the guys are ready to go, they’ll be out there for her, team effort! Um, no, Anna doesn’t want the boys out there. Especially Parker. What? But Saraya says this is why she loves Anna! She’s great. Yeah, she is. Hey, no, stop looking at Ruby. Saraya drags Ruby along, leaving Parker alone. Will the X-JAS still even be the X-JAS anymore with all this drama?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Schiavone says that 28 years ago, in this town, at the Mall of America, two men were in the main event for the very first wrestling match ever on TNT. It was Sting VS Ric Flair. And Schiavone wants to also say that the final match on TNT back then was Sting VS Ric Flair. So it gives Schiavone a sense of pride to welcome one of Minnesota’s favorite sons, as well as STIIIING~! The Icon makes his way out to the ring and fans howl for him. Schiavone then introduces the Nature Boy, the Minnesota native, Ric Flair! Fans “WOO~!” as Flair makes his way out now, and hugs Sting in the ring.

Schiavone has them bring it in. Wednesday night, they announced the location of Sting’s final match at AEW Revolution, March 3rd, 2024. It will be Greensboro, North Carolina, where these two set the standard for a great televised wrestling event. Sting stands at 24-0, the longest undefeated streak standing, and we’re just two weeks away from tickets going on sale. Sting asks to take the mic, and he howls for the fans! The fans howl back and Sting says Minneapolis, lots of great memories here! Not only did he and Ric do the first and last WCW shows on TNT here, but they did the very big, gigantic- Oh, can’t really say that on TV, sorry. Copyright and stuff.

But the massive match at Mall of America, everyone knows about it. Sting’s had great matches here against and with Lex Luger, Bam Bam Bigelow, and lots of other great memories. So good to be back. Thank you for those memories. Thank you, Tony Khan, Tony Schiavone and the Nature Boy! WOO~! Ric takes the mic now, and he says, “Wow. From 1972 ’til today. And believe it or not, I’m still alive. And that’s saying a lot, heh. Because I’ve covered a lot of ground and had a lot of fun. But there are three or four people that are always gonna be special in my life, and you’ll love these names.

“Dusty Rhodes, Ricky The Dragon, and a guy that I think I’ve wrestled at least 15 hundred times over our career, the great–and the word ‘Icon’ does not even enough to begin to say what a man he is. I’m so serious, to be back in my hometown in this moment, and this ride. This is an incredible ride. Think about the history of our business. I’ve been there with him since ’88, and I’m gonna be there with him in the end. And man, that doesn’t happen in real-life, guys. And y’know what? We’ve stayed as respectful and honest with each other as the day we met, and that’s really unusual. You’re the man, brother.”

Fans cheer, and Ric says, “We’re gonna dance all night and dance a little longer. We’re gonna stay up all night and stay a little longer. I cannot tell you where we’ll be at like the old days, but you know we’ll be going AEW strong! WOO~!” Fans echo “WOO~!” with Ric and Schiavone says Ric will be there for Sting at AEW Revolution, tickets on sale soon! The Icon and Nature Boy are riding off into the night, and we have the when and where. Now all we need is, who faces Sting in his final match?

 

Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander & Skye Blue.

Renee is now with the Shining Samurai, the Galaxy’s Greatest and Chicago Skye as she says a lot has changed in the AEW Women’s Division after Full Gear. Shida lost the AEW Women’s World Championship to Toni Storm, and Statlander lost the AEW TBS Championship to Julia Hart, the same match Skye Blue was in. Does tonight feel like a way to get momentum back? Kris says it has been a hard pill to swallow. “You work so hard for something, and you come back from multiple injuries, you come back and change yourself so many times, and you obtain something so precious, and it’s just taken away in a matter of seconds.”

And worse yet, Kris wasn’t the one who got pinned. Oh, okay, blame Skye when Kris had plenty of chances to win the Triple Threat, and didn’t. Shida tells them to stop. She also lost a title, she also feels angry, but not towards them. Not towards her partners. They can take their anger out on their opponents tonight! Kris agrees with that, and so does Skye. Will this trio of stars be able to bring down The Outcasts and Star of the Show?

 

The Don Callis Family VS JAH-C

So what if they lost the Like A Dragon Street Fight? “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs did damage to Paul “The Giant” Wight like no man has ever done before, and there’s still a lot left in the tank for Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita. Will they only be made stronger from that loss?

The teams sort out, Hobbs starts and Jah throws hands! Hobbs doesn’t even flinch! Jah runs, but Hobbs CLOBBERS him! In runs ??? but Hobbs picks him up to SPINEBUSTER! D runs in but Hobbs SPINEBUSTERS him, too! Fletcher & Konosuke step in, they all get a man up, and in synchronized formation, we get the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM, GRIMSTONE and BASTARD DRIVER!! Cover, The Don Callis Family wins!

Winners: The Don Callis Family, by pinfall

Fans boo but Callis celebrates with his “family.” Then Callis gets a mic to talk. “Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega! The Golden Jets! You put two of the greatest of all time into a tag team and what do you got? You got a team that could be the most dominant of all time. And I know that wins and losses matter here in All Elite Wrestling. But in the Don Callis Family, the only thing that matters is winning! And whether it’s singles, tag, or trios, the Don Callis Family will continue dominating until there’s nowhere for the Golden Jets to hide in AEW!” The ultimatum has been issued, will it only be a matter of time before AEW belongs to the DCF?

 

Prince Nana & Brian Cage talk with The Workhorsemen.

Nana says it is an unbelievable time for the Mogul Embassy. Cage says it’s always a great time. Nana says the Gates of Agony are in NJPW World Tag League, killing it and bringing home that money. But tonight, Nana needs to hire some help, and that brings in JD Drake & Anthony Henry. Nana has been watching them, he likes their style. That is why tonight, he needs their services. And this could be a huge opportunity for you both to step up to the plate and to prove a point. To impress Swerve Strickland, too. So tonight, Nana’s paid them, get the job done, and we’ll see if they can join the team. But he believes in them!

Nana & Cage head out, will Scrap metal & The Saint of Augusta help The Machine bring down the luchador trio in tonight’s main event?

 

Six Woman Tag: Anna Jay & The Outcasts VS Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander!

Both sides have said what’s on their mind, but it’s the emotions in their hearts that could make or break these team-ups. Will Saraya be able to keep things together between Anna and Ruby? Or will it be Shida who struggles to keep Skye and Kris on the same page?

The teams sort out and Kris starts against Anna. The fans rally as the two circle, then tie up. Kris waistlocks, SLAMS Anna, then drags her up to tag Shida. The former champs double whip, sweep and ELBOW Anna down. Then they shake hands to DOUBLE ELBOW DROP! Shida covers, TWO! Tag to Skye and she wrenches Anna to a JAWBREAKER! Anna blocks the superkick but not the BASEMENT ROUNDHOUSE! Skye pushes Anna around, but Kris tags herself in. Skye lets that go, to then tag herself back in! But Kris tags back in again! They argue, but then Shida tags herself in to get them both to stop.

But then Anna hot tags Saraya! Saraya gets around Shida, Shida gets around Saraya, but Saraya mule kicks Shida! Saraya runs, but Shida ENZIGURIS first! Shida fires up, the fans are with her, and Shida torture racks! Saraya endures, but Ruby says put her down! So Shida DROPS Saraya! Ruby storms in but Shdia kicks her low, and snap suplexes her onto Saraya! Fans fire up as Shida covers Saraya, TWO! Shida tags Skye in and Skye keeps Saraya from her corner. Skye whips, runs up and SHINING WIZARD on the ropes! But Anna distracts the ref so Saraya can keep Skye stuck, and Ruby ROUNDHOUSES Skye down!

Fans boo but Saraya howls to the moon. Saraya stomps Skye, insults her, and whips her to the corner as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, lets off to distract the ref, and Ruby digs her boot in! Anna pulls Skye’s hair to help out, then Saraya storms up to bump Skye off buckles. Tag to Ruby, she stomps away on Skye, but lets off as the ref counts. Saraya tells fans to shut up while Ruby drags Skye around. Skye throws body shots, then JAWBREAKERS! Ruby staggers back, Saraya tags in, and the Outcasts mug Skye! Saraya has Skye in the ropes to throw knee after knee! The ref counts, Saraya lets off, and she pushes Skye back in. Saraya keeps Skye from her corner, taunting Shida and Kris, then she stomps Skye.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, tags Anna and Anna CHOKES Skye! The ref counts, Anna lets off, and then Anna CHOKES Skye on ropes! The ref counts again, Anna lets off and distracts the ref so Saraya can SLAP Skye. Anna bumps Skye off buckles, Ruby tags in, and Anna ROCKS Skye. Ruby CHOPS Skye, stalks her to a corner, and stands her up, but Skye avoids the chop to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Skye and Ruby sputter and drop to their knees while Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and hot tag to Kris! She BLASTS Ruby, drags Saraya up and FISHERMAN BUSTERS! Cover, but Anna kicks it apart! Anna drags Saraya back and tags herself in. Anna stands Kris up, wrenches and HOOK KICKS! Then Saraya KNEES Kris down! Cover, TWO! Anna drags Kris up, QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! But Kris powers up to back suplex free! Ruby runs in, STO! Skye SUPERKICKS Ruby! Saraya YAKUZA KICKS Skye! Shida ROCKS Saraya, whips her but Saraya reverses, only for Shida to JUMP KNEE! Anna BOOTS Shida! Kris runs up, but into a COMPLETE SHOT! Anna tags Ruby and they get Kris up.

Anna HOOK KICKS, then Ruby SUPERKICKS but Kris pulls Anna into it! Ruby panics, Kris tags Skye and Electric Chair Lifts Ruby! SLAM and CODE BLUE!! Cover, Skye’s team wins!

Winners: Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander, by pinfall

The dysfunction wasn’t enough to bring down Skye and Kris, they made it work and now celebrate together! As for Anna, she is furious with Ruby, and Saraya pulls Ruby along like an angry mother with her daughter. Are the Outcasts going to be on the outs sooner rather than later?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

Firstly, the Continental Classic continues, and the Gold League’s third round has been set: Jon Moxley VS Rush; Jay White VS Jay Lethal; and Swerve Strickland VS Mark Briscoe! Will El Toro Blanco be the one to serve The Maniac that first L in the tournament? Will Lethal and Briscoe finally get on the board?

And after being the one to score the pinfall in tonight’s Six Woman Tag, Skye Blue gets her shot at “Timeless” Toni Storm and the AEW Women’s World Championship! Will Skye finally make it through the Storm to grab the gold on the other side?

 

Six Man Tag: Penta El Zero Miedo, El Hijo Del Vikingo & Komander w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Brian Cage & The Workhorsemen w/ Prince Nana!

While the AEW World Trios Champions, Billy Gunn & The Acclaimed, are down and out, trios are forming and fighting their way up. Alex Abrahantes’ league of luchadores want their shot, but will they make it through a Rampage? Or will The Mogul Embassy learn that having #CeroMiedo is priceless?

The trios sort out, and Cage starts against Komander. Cage kicks Komander low right at the bell, then whips him to ropes. Komander handsprings, Cage dodges but Komander dodges back, then RAN- NO, Cage blocks that to pop Komander up! But Komander sunset flips! Cage drags Kmoander up to OVERHEAD SUPLEX! Penta tags in, then GAMANGIRIS Cage! Penta goes up to CROSSBODY! And then he dodges to SUPERKICK! Henry tags in, bobs ‘n’ weaves and fires off hands. Henry gets around to make Penta kneel, and he DROPKICKS Penta away! Henry soaks up the jeers, but Penta tags Vikingo!

Viking springboards to MISSILE DROPKICK Henry! Fans fire up as Vikingo then whips Henry corner to corner. Henry reverses, but Vikingo reverses back to HEEL KICK! Vikingo forearm smashes int he corner, goes up and fans rally, for the IMPLODER DRAGON-RANA! And then the DREAMCAST KICK! JD tags in and fans rally up. JD says “SUCK IT!” and then dares Vikingo to chop him. Vikingo winds up as fans chant “SI! SI! SI!” CHOP! JD nods, but he wants another. Vikingo CHOPS again, and JD huffs and puffs. JD swings, Vikingo ducks ‘n’ dodges but JD CHOPS Vikingo down after all!

JD then powers Vikingo to ropes to BIEL him across the way! JD taunts Penta, whips Vikingo, but Vikingo ducks ‘n’ dodges again to CORKCCREW RANA! JD flounders out, Cage and Henry run in, but Penta & Komander SUPERKICK them first! Henry bails out, Penta gives Komander a boost, saluting MISSILE DROPKICK! Cage tumbles out, fans rally as the luchadores coordinate, and “CERO! MIEDO!” TRIPLE DIVES!! Some cleaner than others, and JD pops Vikingo back up to CLOBBER him off the ropes! Komander stomps Cage, and puts him in the ring as Rampage goes picture in picture.

The implosion of Nana’s team all over a misunderstanding gives Penta’s team their first victory together! Will Penta, Komander y Vikingo take this momentum to next beat Action Andretti & Top Flight?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage here with a lot of tag team action. There must be something in Cassidy’s contract about opening shows, though, because that 8 Man Tag certainly felt main event worthy. But then it made sense in story that it had to go first so that the X-JAS could be in action before Anna, and Anna would tell Parker to stay in the back during her match because of how Ruby would be involved. Great win for Cassidy’s team, and great win for the Faces in the Women’s Trios match. Rather surprised Skye is getting her shot at Storm so soon. Yes, she interrupted Storm’s acceptance speech moment, and won here, but why not give us a promo segment between them first, then the match on Winter is Coming. But at the same time, debut in Montreal, they want it to be important.

Of course Don Callis Family squashes jobbers, but I like that we got to see Hobbs, Konosuke and Fletcher all in red ring gear. And seeing Don Callis’ Last Supper parody, it makes me think he wants a total of 11 faction members. I say 11 because “Judas” is already accounted for in Jericho. So far, he has five, Callis really is gonna have to recruit tag teams and/or trios if he wants an easier time of filling out the group. Really good main event from Penta’s team going against Cage & Workhorsemen. Of course the Faces win, but also it was clear the Workhorsemen were going to take the loss for the Heels. Kinda wished Cage would beat down the Workhorsemen after the loss, not because of the “misunderstanding” trope, but that’d probably take away from the Faces celebrating.

And given Rampage is prerecorded, turns out that was for the best this week. I’d only just heard today about how… controversial Ric Flair got in his part of the promo segment. Flair also tweeted about it, both apologizing and not apologizing for what he said. This is gonna be a long three months if everyone has to worry about Flair spouting off the stuff he got away with in the 1980s when he was much, MUCH younger. That aside, the entire segment was redundant anyway, we heard them talk on Dynamite, this is the same crowd that heard it all, it’s just a waste of time.

My Score: 8.5/10
