PLAY BY PLAY

Welcome the NEW North American Champion, Carmelo Hayes!

The TWO-TIME A Champion heads out with Trick Williams by his side. Melo opens his letterman’s jacket to reveal his belt is back around his waist after defeating and dethroning Cameron Grimes. Trick gets the mic first to say that at least, things are back to normal. Melo is North American Champion, Trick’s baby, Harpy is single, and the Warriors are about to beat the Celtics! C’mon, man, Melo’s from Boston. Is he? He is. Well sorry about that, but the point is everyone needs to make some noise for your two-time North American Champion! Fans boo but Melo treats it like cheering as he thanks them

And first thing’s first, Melo gives credit to Grimes bringing the best version of himself to give Melo one of the toughest matches of his life. But the goal was always getting back to this title, and now he is the goal! Melo doesn’t chase dreams, dreams chase him. He is what everyone else aspires to be! As he looks around at the crowd, seeing the scrubs in the building, they wish they could do what he does. Every time they shoot their shots, they miss! Melo is standing at the top of his accomplishments while you losers are reaching for their goals! Melo said that to say this: “I am the most illustrious NXT North American Champion in history! And let’s be real, y’all, I got right now.”

But speaking of this title, here comes Solo Sikoa! Fans chant for “SO~LO!” and Solo tells Melo, congrats on the win at In Your House. But no one wants to hear all that. Fans know it, Solo says this is 2.0, where it’s less talking and more fighting. But Solo will keep this short and sweet. He’s got next! Trick tells Solo to hold on. That was between Solo and the former champion. That agreement is no longer relevant, brother. And to keep it all real, Solo bet on the wrong one. Solo asks if they see any kind of fear in his eyes. The answer is hell now! Solo has Melo’s number! Melo knows it, Trick knows it, everyone else knows it!

But wait, here comes Grayson Waller! He wants everyone to hold on. Who the hell does Solo think he is? He ain’t famous enough to have Melo’s number. And even if Solo did, Melo would leave him on voicemail! And just so everyone knows, Waller doesn’t care about anyone’s blood type. Doesn’t matter who Solo’s daddy is, who his brothers are, or his cousins, nieces, nephews or aunties! Solo doesn’t get opportunities just because he wants one. Fans want Waller to “Shut the Hell Up!” but Waller says those putting up a finger, that’s just the number of friends you have! And newsflash: mom doesn’t count! No one here has friends, and neither does Solo.

Waller says no one is friends with Solo, that’s why that’s his name. Solo gives Waller a newsflash: “Shut the Hell up!” Fans fire up and Solo tells Waller that he fights alone in the ring, but not tonight, because he has the fans. Fans cheer for that, too! Solo sees Waller wants, and if he wants to fight, then let’s go! Solo DECKS Trick, DECKS Melo, brawls with Waller, but he ends up in a 3v1! Fans boo as Waller and the others all stomp Solo, then Waller gets Solo up for a DDT! Refs rush out and they get Waller, Melo and Trick to leave. Will the Street Champion fight his way up until he gets the North American Champion 1v1?

 

The Don arrives to the arena.

And because he, Stacks and Two Dimes won, Legado has to be their assistants. Cruz drives, Santos opens the door for Tony, and Joaquin gets the bags. Tony asks if Santos took care of that thing for him, and Santos says the guy promised to have the papers by Friday. Not bad. But what about the other thing? Joaquin says the city hall meeting is this Thursday. But why does Tony want a redistricting- Now, now, you have a lot to learn, kid. But Tony is thinking it is time to get some ring gear on. Santos has a match tonight. Go get ready! Santos is fuming, but he keeps the others from speaking up. They must be men of their word, but will Tony push Legado a little too far?

 

Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone & Sophia Cromwell VS Josh Briggs w/ Brooks Jensen & Fallon Henley!

Vicious Von has wrecked everyone who has stood in his way, or just simply glanced at Sophia Cromwell. He broke Brooks’ hand over a look, but will Briggs break Von in vengeance? Or will even the bar brawler footballer have to admit this is Wagner’s World and he’s just living in it?

The hands start flying before the bell! The ref backs them off just long enough for the bell, and then the hands start flying again! Briggs gets the edge, backs Von to a corner and fire off more shots. Von shoves but Briggs shoves back to fire more hands! Von bumps Briggs off buckles, gives back hands and even knees and shoulders! The ref counts, Von lets off at 4 but Briggs hits back. Von knees and ROCKS Briggs to another corner, then whips. Briggs reverses to ROCK Von, then whip and CLOBBER him! Fans fire up and Briggs slides out to ROCK Von off the ropes! Stone talks trash but Briggs gets in, only for Von to BOOT Briggs down!

Von bumps Briggs off buckles, fires off more hands, then lets off at 4. Von reels Briggs into a knee, then pulls hair to shout, “My World!” Von BOOTS Briggs again but fans boo. Stone taunts Briggs, Von pushes Briggs around, but Briggs throws body shots and hands! Briggs whips Von to a corner but Von dodges to OLYMPIC SLAM! Cover, TWO! Von snarls but he rains down fists on Briggs. Fans rally behind Briggs but Von gets the arm! Briggs fights back, throws body shots, but Von throws knees. Briggs fires off hands and he DECKS Von! Then BOOTS him back! Fans fire up again as Briggs whips, but Von holds ropes.

Briggs rushes in but Von kicks his leg! Von sends Briggs out, goes out after him, and RAMS Briggs into the apron. Von then gets Brooks’ bad hand and SLAMS it on the apron! Fallon is pissed, but that’s just a distraction so Brooks can take of the cast?! Brooks slides it into the ring for Briggs, and we’re going Cowboy Bob Orton !CAST SMACK! And then LARIAT!! Cover, Briggs wins!!

Winner: Josh Briggs, by pinfall

Stone is furious but his side got suckered in! Briggs avenges Brooks with help from Brooks, will they be turning Wagner’s World upside-down?

 

Backstage interview with Solo Sikoa.

McKenzie asks how he is doing after that mugging just moments ago. Solo says in the streets, you scrap. Sometimes you get it, sometimes you don’t. But it ain’t one of those where you catch them down the road next week or next month. Solo wants BOTH Waller and Melo tonight! So is that a Handicap Match? Hell, if someone wants to join in, they’re Solo’s guest. He doesn’t ask for help, but one way or another, he leaves those bitches the way they left him. Will someone join the Street Champion against Waller and the A Champion?

 

Andre Chase welcomes Thea Hail to Chase U.

On behalf of the university, he presents a 2022-2023 scholarship to NXT’s newest signee! She thanks them all and is so excited to be here to perfect her craft. They take a class picture, but then Pretty Deadly walk in laughing at them all. Asking teacher for a picture is so embarrassing. They’re embarrassing. Bodhi says that’s true. This picture needs something more. It needs star power! More fashion sense! It needs Pretty Deadly! So they can grab their tag titles- Oh wait! Pretty Deadly lost them! Oh haha, just watch yourselves. Pretty Deadly leave, and Chase says they’ll take the pic now. Chase U on three! Will Pretty Deadly end up on the receiving end of a #TeachableMoment soon enough?

 

Santos Escobar w/ The D’Angelo Familia VS Nathan Frazer!

The Don is making the Emperor of Lucha earn his keep by having a match he is not prepared for! And it’s against the British Prodigy who took Cameron Grimes to his limits! Will Escobar be able to survive this last second showdown? Or will Frazer take flight at Escobar’s expense?

NXT returns and Tony’s crew sees Legado out for this match. But then Tony tells Cruz & Wilde to go to the back, his guys will handle this. Tony even joins commentary while Escobar circles with Frazer. They tie up, Escobar waistlocks but Frazer gets ropes. The ref counts, Escobar lets off, and he resets with Frazer. They tie up, Escobar arm-drags and has the armlock, fans rally for “Both These Guys!” already. Frazer fights up, but Escobar hits a stiff monkey flip! Frazer gets to ropes to slow things down, and they reset again. They tie up, Escobar waistlocks and SLAMS Frazer! Escobar floats around on Frazer, has the legs and half nelson but Frazer moves around.

Frazer fights up, Escobar waistlocks, Tony says this is getting boring, they should do something else. Frazer switches, shoves, things speed up, Frazer redirects and goes up and over with a flip! Not so boring anymore, huh, Tony? Frazer keeps things moving, he ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA Escobar to a corner! Fans fire up and Escobar is fuming, glaring at Tony for putting him in this situation. Frazer runs in, Escobar sends him out, and he points at Tony. But then he turns around into Frazer’s missile dropkick! Escobar bails out. Frazer builds speed, but stops when Escobar moves. Tony asks what is going on here! Get in the ring!

Escobar gets in, he scoops Frazer but Frazer slips out to waistlock and O’Conner Roll! TWO, but Frazer rushes in! Escobar puts him out to ENZIGURI him off the apron! Fans fire up and Escobar seethes. Escobar DIVES! Down goes Frazer as the Arrow from Hell hits its mark! Fans are fired up for “LEGADO! LEGADO!” Tony tells Escobar to not do the dive, no one likes that. Fans disagree but NXT goes picture in picture as Escobar argues with his new boss.

Escobar gets in the ring but still glares at Tony. Escobar stomps Frazer, then drops an elbow on Frazer’s back. And another! Escobar drags Frazer up but Frazer throws body shots. Escobar CLUBS, whips and scoops Frazer for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, ONE!! Frazer is showing that toughness, but Escobar gets his legs to turn him over. Escobar sneers as he stares Tony down and drags Frazer to a corner. Escobar wants the legs but Frazer kicks him away. Escobar stomps Frazer down, then drags him up to put him in the corner. Escobar CHOPS Frazer, then brings him around to CLUB in the back.

Escobar goes corner to corner to uppercut Frazer in the back! Frazer writhes and grits his teeth but Escobar stomps him down. Escobar goes out, drags Frazer to the corner and then the ring steps, for a BOSTON CRAB into the post! Frazer endures, the ref counts, and Escobar lets off. Escobar “apologizes” then drags Frazer up and into the ring. Escobar brings Frazer to another corner, and slingshot sentons! Cover, but they’re too close to the ropes! Escobar lets off to pull Frazer into another post! The ref counts, Escobar lets off and “apologizes” again. Escobar gets in to drag Frazer up but Frazer throws body shots.

Escobar CLUBS Frazer, reels him in, but Frazer trips Escobar to jackknife! TWO, and Escobar CLOBBERS Frazer! Escobar kicks Frazer to a corner, brings him up, and then digs his face into buckles. The ref counts, Escobar lets off to CLUB Frazer in the back. NXT is single picture again as Escobar digs Frazer into the buckles again. Escobar lets off, but Frazer starts throwing hands! Frazer backs Escobar down, whips, but Escobar reverses! Frazer tumbles up and down the buckles, then staggers into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Frazer is still in this, and that frustrates Escobar.

Escobar pulls on Frazer’s leg, then brings him around as fans rally up. Escobar hooks up the legs, punches Frazer to get the arms, and then gets Frazer up in the ROMERO SPECIAL! Frazer endures, fans rally, and Frazer gets his arms free! But Escobar throws him down with the legs! Cover, TWO! Escobar grows frustrated but he stalks Frazer. Frazer gets up, runs in, but Escobar tackles him to get the BOSTON CRAB! Frazer endures, fans rally and duel, and Tony wants Escobar to tighten that hold up. Escobar drags Frazer away, sits deep, but Frazer still claws his way forward! ROPEBREAK! Escobar lets go in frustration and Tony is upset again.

Escobar and Tony argue about how Escobar is wrestling, and Escobar fires the fans up with his whistle. Escobar YANKS Frazer from the ropes but Frazer gets to his feet! Frazer slides under, rolls Escobar up, TWO! Frazer runs in, slips off the scoop, waistlocks but Escobar bucks the O’Conner. They both run, Frazer CLOBBERS Escobar with flying forearms! Fans fire up while both men are down! Frazer gets up as fans rally behind him, and Tony says Escobar is embarrassing the family. Frazer kips up and rallies on Escobar with lariats and forearms! QUEBRADA into ELBOW DROP DDT! Frazer then SHOOTING STARS! Cover, TWO!

Frazer is surprised but he still drags Escobar to a drop zone. Frazer goes up, PHOENIX- NO, he has to roll through as Escobar moves! BIG KNEE from Escobar, fireman’s carries, but Frazer slips off! Escobar dodges and CALF KICKS Frazer out! Then Two Dimes slides him a crowbar? Escobar snarls, he doesn’t want this, and he slides it back! Tony is upset, but Escobar goes over to the ropes. Frazer GAMANGIRIS Escobar and then goes up top! PHOENIX SPLASH!! Cover, Frazer wins!!

Winner: Nathan Frazer, by pinfall

Tony says, “Nice job, moron!” Tony can’t believe Escobar didn’t want to cheat the D’Angelo way. But will this partnership only bring them all down? Or will Escobar bend to do as he’s told?

 

Backstage interview with Xyon Quinn.

McKenzie asks him about his return last week. But Quinn just says Frazer is another guy carrying a rabbit’s foot wherever he goes. Frazer, Wes Lee, they’re all the same. For seven days straight, Quinn had to watch and listen to Wes Lee’s name be mentioned everywhere. “Wes Lee’s so brave! Wes Lee’s amazing! Did you see Wes Lee’s awesome victory?” Quinn says of that five minute match, Quinn dominated for four minutes and 55 seconds! Those last few seconds were like pulling a rabbit out of a hat, and that’s supposed to be a victory? Not where Quinn’s from. That’s just luck. So when Quinn gets his rematch, it won’t be the same for Cinderella Man.

But hopefully Sanga is there to pick up the pieces, because when Quinn’s down with Wes, he won’t even be conscious. Will Quinn #RunItStraight and break the tie? Or will he end up getting further upset by the Must-See Kid?

 

Bron Breakker is here!

And he is still NXT Champion after refusing to let Joe Gacy goad him into crossing the line! Fans bark it up as Bron gets the mic. Bron says, “NXT In Your House was a battle. Joe Gacy challenged me mentally, challenged me physically. Hell, he even went after my father, my family, he made things personal! But no matter what Joe Gacy did, he was not taking this NXT Championship away from me!” Bron says that match wasn’t just about him, it was about NXT! This place is special! NXT is special! Fans cheer for that, and Bron says after going through the curtain, he saw the look on everyone’s faces. Everyone wants after the title.

“So the question is… Who’s gonna step up to the challenge?” Bron waits and who do we get? “APOLLO~!” Fans fire up for the return of the most athletic man to cross through NXT, and he is fired up to be back! Apollo gets in the ring with Bron and gets a mic as fans chant, “WELCOME BACK!” Apollo says he wants us to believe him when he says this is the type of energy he has missed! Apollo then tells Bron he wasn’t here on Saturday but he’s here now, for as long as he wants to be. And congratulations on the win. Fans chant “We Missed You!” and Apollo says he missed them, too. But he has to say, he has seen the meteoric rise, and Bron is one of the best not just in NXT but all of WWE!

Apollo says this place IS special, he loves NXT! When he left NXT, it was way too soon, with a lot of things he wanted to do on the table. But he is back to correct history! He is back to change history! Apollo Crews is back to make history! And Bron, Apollo saw that one day, they would make that history together. Until then, see you down the road. Fans cheer as the two shake hands. Will Apollo make sure he gets to the NXT Championship sooner rather than later? Or will he check off some other things first?

 

Joe Gacy speaks.

“Recognizing you can’t get through this life all alone is not a weakness, but a strength. There are people in this world that need guidance. You two were prime examples. You realized you were not fulfilled, so you cleared your minds and opened your hearts to me.” They’ve made great strides, and there are people that don’t understand they are shaping the world by maximizing their exposure on the platform they have each and every week. Their message is far more important than any possession or symbol. But now, they can focus on their progression.

“Forget what you’ve been called. You are the Dyad, and you will continue to be an extension of me, starting next week when you compete in the ring for the very first time.” Just who are the two under the hoods? And will they be able to fulfill Gacy’s mission of transforming NXT into his image?

 

NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament Finals: Roxanne Perez VS Tiffany Stratton!

In one corner, the Gamer Girl scratched and clawed her way just to get into NXT, and then to get to this moment here tonight. In the other corner, Daddy’s Little Rich Girl popped into NXT on a whim, and then got lucky someone had to drop out. Will the hard work and determination pay off for Roxie? Or will Tiffany blow her a kiss from the winner’s circle?

The bell rings and the two tie up. Fans rally and duel, Tiffany puts Roxie on ropes. The ref counts, Tiffany lets off at 4 and argues, then she shoves Roxie down. Roxie huffs, gets around Tiffany, waistlocks then headlocks. Tiffany pulls hair to pull Roxie back and power out. Tiffany then sweeps the legs and covers, TWO! Roxie sweeps but Tiffany handsprings through and does a curtsy. Roxie says okay, and she blocks a kick to spin Tiffany. Roxie rolls, rolls and headscissirs! Tiffany handsprings through again! But she swaggers into a SHOTGUN! Roxie eggs Tiffany on then drop toeholds! Roxie stomps Tiffany’s fingers!

Roxie does the curtsy, then wrenches an arm to a wristlock. Tiffany endures, reaches for ropes but Roxie keeps her away with a hammerlock. They go around, Tiffany reaches out again but Roxie wrenches through to wristlock. Tiffany rolls, handsprings, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roxie endures, fans rally, Roxie rolls and goes after the arm but Tiffany wrangles her down. Tiffany digs her knee into Roxie’s head, twists the wrist and bends the fingers! Fans rally and duel, Roxie fights up but Tiffany bends the fingers more! Roxie refuses to give up, she pushes free, but Tiffany wrangles her again!

Tiffany digs her knee in again, but Roxie still endures. Fans rally and duel harder, Roxie fight sup, rolls and handsprings to wrench and WRING Tiffany!

Tiffany loses extensions but she MOONSAULTS the arm! Cover, TWO! Tiffany hurries after the bad arm but Roxie endures again.

Winner: Roxanne Perez, by pinfall (NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament Champion)

And Cora Jade is right out here to celebrate with her! Roxie rocks Tiffany and gets her name on that contract! Cora presents Roxie with the contract, but then Toxic Attraction makes their way out. Mandy Rose, still NXT Women’s Champion, “congratulates” Roxanne. “All the sacrifices, the hardships, those long bus rides, it all paid off. Honestly, you should be really proud of yourself. And to top it off, you have your best friend standing beside you to soak it all in. Wow… That’s amazing.” Mandy means it. But she wants Roxie to enjoy this moment. “Because unfortunately, it’s all downhill from here.”

If Roxie thinks she can cash in on Mandy, no no no, honey. She has a better chance of going to Raw or SmackDown, or even just leaving that contract in her closet. If Roxie challenges Mandy, she will fail. Just ask Cora. She had not just one, but two chances, and failed both times. So Mandy’s title isn’t going anywhere any time soon. And as for Cora, if she thinks her stupid skateboarding ass- Roxie DECKS Mandy! And then she and Cora brawl with Gigi & Jacy! Fans fire up, Mandy manages to get up, and she goes after Roxie! The 3v2 of course goes Toxic Attraction’s way, but then here comes INDI! Indi DECKS Jacy, shoves Gigi and DECKS her, too!

Mandy turns Indi around but gets ROCKED! Then DOUBLE SUPERKICKS from Roxie & Cora! Mandy gets on the apron, Indi BOOTS her off! Mandy falls right onto Gigi & Jacy, Toxic Attraction are down for the count! Will Roxie make sure she breaks out and takes gold from Toxic Attraction?

 

Bodhi Hayward’s been attacked!

Referees and Andre Chase find him clutching his ribs. It was Pretty Deadly! Bodhi wants to still go with Chase to the ring, but Chase says the medics have to take care of him. Chase is furious, but he’s going to the ring to whoop those SOB’s! Will Professor Chase be able to handle both “tasty dishes” on his own? Or will they give him more of the same once the bell rings?

 

Backstage interview with Wendy Choo.

Sadly, things didn’t go her way at In Your House, but- Wait, Tiffany barges in, whining about losing to Roxie and claiming she cheated. Wendy says, “Excuse me.” But Tiffany says, “You’re excused,” and keeps on whining. Wendy speaks up again and Tiffany asks what? This is her time! Tiffany wants a rematch! Wendy SPLASHES Tiffany! Tiffany freaks out over her hair now, but will she be having an even worse meltdown if she loses to Wendy?

 

Handicap Match: Pretty Deadly VS Andre Chase!

Kit Wilson & Elton Prince warned Chase U, and then made good on the threat taking out the star pupil. But will they take out the headmaster next? Or will they learn a lesson in humility after already having lost their titles?

Chase doesn’t wait for a bell, he gets in and dodges Prince to DECK Wilson! Then he fires off on Prince and the ref rings the bell! Chase fires off and DECKS Prince, then BOOTS Chase! Prince whips, Chase ducks and dodges to THESZ PRESS! And fast hands! Prince pushes Chase away but Chase CHOPS him to a corner! Chase climbs up to rain down more fists!

Bodhi says, “But Chase needs us!” and a lightbulb goes off in Thea’s head! SHE gets on the apron!?

Thea wants this to be a co-ed tag match?! That’s not a thing in NXT, is it? Fans want it to be but Pretty Deadly tells the new girl to calm down. She SLAPS Prince instead! Chase rallies on Pretty Deadly, atomic drop and a whip, but Wilson reverses. Chase reverses back to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Chase stomps and fans spell “CHASE U!” for him! Chase fireman’s carries but Wilson slips off to waistlock. Chase switches but Prince tags in before the O’Conner Roll! Wilson kicks Chase into Prince’s BOOT! Then Prince gets in, SPILT MILK!! Cover, Pretty Deadly wins!

Winners: Pretty Deadly, by pinfall

Thea tried but the rules wouldn’t let her help Chase. Pretty Deadly gets back up, but will they get back to the NXT Tag Team Championships?

 

Melo & Trick walk the halls, but spot something.

Trick says these three must be waiting on them. It’s Tony D and his boys! Tony says, “What up, champ?” Congrats, but as you know, you’re not the only one with a victory from In Your House. So if Melo wants his reign to last longer than the first, falling in lone behind The Don might not be a bad idea. Trick says Tony may be the Don, but this is the Sun! Everything revolves around Melo. To put it like this, Melo is good on mentioning his title, but no thanks. Well then stay out of Tony’s way, son. Because if you don’t, this ends in the blink of an eye. But uh, good luck in the main event. Melo wants Tony to put some respect on the name. Will Melo show The Don just who is in charge around here?

 

Alba Fyre VS Tatum Paxley!

The Scary Queen of Scots has risen from the ashes like a phoenix, and she wants to blaze a trail to the top! The powerlifter stepped up where the baller didn’t, will Tatum be able to put out the Fyre? Or will she just be more wood for the flame to stay alive?

NXT returns and Tatum makes her entrance. The bell rings and the two tie up. They go around, Fyre waistlocks but Tatum wrenches out to a hammerlock. Fyre switches that onto Tatum but Tatum hits a fireman’s carry takeover. Tatum has the armlock, Fyre fights up but Tatum wrangles her for a La Magistrol! TWO, Tatum is ready and she waistlocks. Fyre pries free, gets around and SLAMS Tatum! Ghost pin, TWO! Tatum gets back up and resets with Fyre. They tie up, Fyre gets a leg and flips Tatum! Tatum handsprings through to tackle Fyre to a cover, TWO! Tatum picks Fyre up but Fyre sunset flips, only for Tatum to sit down! TWO!

Fyre and Tatum hurry back up, Fyre has the leg again and flips Tatum again, to KNEE her as she shoots in! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and duel, Fyre stalks Tatum to a corner. Fyre brings Tatum out, ROCKS her with a right, then whips her to a corner. Tatum reverses, Fyre reverses and Tatum hits buckles hard! Fyre CHOPS Tatum, brings her around, and GOURD BUSTERS! Cover, TWO! Fyre stalks Tatum to ropes, fans rally more and Fyre hooks Tatum up in the Gory Especial! GORY BOMB! But Fyre isn’t done, she rises up to the top rope. Tatum rolls away, but Fyre just shrugs. BIG SWANTON BOMB! Cover, Fyre wins!

Winner: Alba Fyre, by pinfall

Fyre still hits the target, she still gets the win! But she shows Tatum respect for stepping up to her. Will this nod of approval mean Tatum is on her way to the top? But then Lash BOOTS Fyre at the stage! Lash talks trash but fans say SHE is trash! Lash is brave when Fyre isn’t ready, but will Fyre make Lash regret ever stepping to her like that?

 

The Diamond Mine is in the dojo.

And they’re admiring the NXT Tag Team Championships the Creeds just won on Saturday. But Roderick Strong walks in and says he may have given them a hard time, and things were said. They’re all alphas here, especially #BigIve. But on Saturday, the biggest challenge of the Creeds’ careers, and they not only rose to the occasion, they dominated! That was amazing. Strong wants to congratulate them on being the NEW NXT Tag Team Champions! Bring it in! Diamond Mine Forever! Water under the bridge! They hug it out, but then Malik Blade & Edris Enofe walk in? Edris says great win and Malik says that Brutus Ball from the top was amazing!

Julius, that was picture perfect on the Shooting Star, too. And not to ruin the moment, but uh, maybe Malik & Edris can get a shot? Well, Saturday was a big day. They had to be dialed in and perform in front of friends and family. And even with all that, they still heard these two talking that talk. But they appreciate it! Yeah, man! Nice. So if Malik & Edris want their shot next week, the Creeds would be honored. The deal is in, but Strong isn’t so sure. What are they doing? What? Diamond Mine doesn’t back down. Yeah but this isn’t Christmas! You don’t just hand out a title shot! You make those guys earn things!

Oh but that’s right, they’re new to being champions. But Strong’s been champion countless times! Now that he thinks about it, they did make some mistakes that almost cost them. They’re lucky to be champs! Strong was going to give them one mistake as champions, and they just made it. So much for everyone getting along… Will Strong’s ego be what costs his boys their belts? Or will it just cost him his spot in the group?

 

NXT receives another message in Italian.

“In this world, luck favors the bold. And his luck never runs out. His fortune is measured not just by his back account, but by his wealth of style, and the flare for the performance. His ability to step out on his own from a dominant circle shows he fears nothing and regrets less. Destined to uncork success at every turn, the time has come to show the world who he is. Prepare for his arrival as NXT will never be the same.” Fabian Aichner IS Giovanni Vinci! And he’s back on NXT next week!

 

Grayson Waller & Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams VS Solo Sikoa & ???

The 21st Century Success Story and the two-time North American Champion both think the Street Champion of the Island needs to wait in line, not just get things because he’s Bloodline. And while Solo is more than willing to take these two on all alone, he did leave an open invitation to anyone who dislikes Melo and Waller as much as he does. Will someone accept and join Solo’s side? Or will Sikoa really be solo in this fight?

Solo makes his entrance, and he has a mic. “Listen. As bad as I want to kick you two asses right now, I brought somebody with me that can feel the same way.” It’s… APOLLO! Seems Apollo wasn’t going to just settle for reintroducing himself! Will he make a huge impact in this sudden return match?

Solo and Apollo get in, they ROCK and TOSS Trick, then they brawl with Melo and Waller! Solo clotheslines Melo out, Apollo clotheslines Waller out right after! Fans are fired up while Melo and Waller regroup. They get back up as Solo steps up for the team. Melo and Solo stare down, Melo talks trash, but then Melo tags Waller. Fans boo but Waller mocks Solo’s stance. Waller tries testing kicks but then dodges the right to JAB Solo! And HEADBUTT! That doesn’t work out, Solo’s head is way harder than Waller’s! Solo HEADBUTTS Waller down, then tags Apollo. Solo scoop SLAMS Waller, for Apollo’s slingshot senton!

Apollo brings Waller up, suplexes and holds, and then uses just one arm! Apollo keeps Waller up for TWENTY, then for THIRTY before the SLAM! Fans fire up, Apollo swipes at Melo, then he brings Waller up. Tag to Solo, they mug Waller, then Solo whips to CLOBBER Waller. Solo runs for FALLING HEADBUTT! Cover, TWO! Solo wrenches, tags Apollo, Apollo goes up to ax handle. Apollo JABS and whips but Waller holds ropes. Waller elbows Apollo, tags Melo, then rushes Apollo.

The homecoming is victorious! Apollo takes down the 21st Century Success Story, and he helps Solo get even with Melo! Will Solo prove he does have the next shot at the North American Championship? Will Apollo end up going for gold on his own?


My Thoughts:

A great episode for NXT, especially to follow In Your House. For one, great to see them follow on the story of The Don taking over Legado right away, and not in any way that’s too stupid or degrading for Legado. Pretty sure they got some rather interesting political social commentary with that redistricting line, but I don’t know Florida politics. Either way, it was a great move for Tony to force Escobar to have an “impromptu” match with Frazer. Escobar VS Frazer was a great match, Tony criticizing Escobar’s wrestling style was a great detail, and of course Frazer wins because Tony and his guys kept distracting him. This will all lead to Legado losing their cool and uprising against Tony D.

I really liked what they gave us in the tag division tonight. For one, Strong can’t help but create tension between him and the rest of Diamond Mine. He disapproved the Creeds giving Malik & Edris a shot, and he might try to get involved in the match again like he did with Viking Raiders and Pretty Deadly. The Creeds will retain and this thing with Strong will come to a head in time for Great American Bash 2022. Pretty Deadly had a good interaction with Chase U, and of course they’d attack Bodhi to give themselves an advantage. I really liked the bit where Thea wanted to tag in even though it wasn’t co-ed, and there has to be a moment where Thea proves herself in a big match.

Good match from Tatum against Fyre but of course Fyre wins. Fyre hitting that Swanton from corner to center was great stuff. And of course Lash attacks Fyre in a classic Heel move. Fyre VS Lash will be another good match, and I suppose Lash could win with cheating, but Fyre should win to build more momentum towards the title. Roxie VS Tiffany was a great match for the Breakout Tournament finals, and I wish this was the main event just on principle of the historic match being the most important. Roxie wins because duh, all the champions are Heels. And naturally, the champions showed up to talk down to Roxie.

We got a great brawl, and Indi showing up could mean Roxie uses her contract to get her and Cora a tag title match, and Indi gets a fair match with Mandy for the top title. I kinda hope this is where Toxic Attraction loses, so that Indi can join Io Shirai and Raquel Gonzalez in having the top title and the tag titles in their careers. The only thing Indi doesn’t have that those two do have is a Dusty Cup trophy. Also, an interesting move that Wendy and Tiffany are having another feud after both of them lost the big prizes. Maybe Wendy wins this time since she has the fans behind her much stronger this time.

Bron Breakker had a decent enough promo giving some credit to Gacy, but the big moment was Apollo’s return to NXT, and not having the Nigerian Prince gimmick or even accent. Vince and team really let the ball drop on that one. They moved Apollo & Azeez to Raw but then kinda forgot about them the last few months. Apollo will surely make his way to the top title, but it was great for him to join Solo against Waller and Melo. Great set-up to this with the segment where Melo said Grimes’ promise is null and void, and then we got a great tag team match. Solo and Apollo win, they’ve got momentum towards titles, but it’d be quite the twist if Apollo got in on the North American title match. Apollo VS Melo 1v1 would be awesome stuff, too, but I would think Solo is meant to dethrone Melo.

My Score: 8.7/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

FTW Championship: Hook VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil knows he’s up against a bad, bad man, but this is FTW Rules! Everyone who fights for this title is a bad, bad man, so will Hook prove he’s the baddest? Or will Shane #SendHook back to New York without his gold?

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?

 

AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over. Rocky hooks an arm but Roddy fights off the takedown to hip toss and cover. ONE, but Roddy facelocks. Rocky fights up, pries at the hold, but Roddy holds on tight.

Rocky CHOPS and then stomps away on Roddy!

Rocky digs his boot in, lets off as the ref counts, then stands Roddy up. Rocky snapmares and runs to basement dropkick! Roddy flounders, Rocky covers, ONE!! Rocky keeps one eye on The Kingdom, then he brings Roddy around. UPPERCUT and Roddy staggers. Roddy BOOTS, whips, but Rocky goes Spiderman! Rocky then dodges Roddy and sends him tumbling out! Rocky goes out to PENALTY KICK from the apron! Rocky leaps to DIVING STOMP! Roddy writhes, Rocky gives more Latino Heat, and BOTB goes picture in picture.

Rocky tells The Kingdom to back off, and so does the ref. Taven mocks Rocky’s Latino Heat, but Rocky puts Roddy in the ring. Rocky storms up on Roddy to KICK his leg! Roddy hobbles to a corner, Rocky CHOPS him and then follows him. Rocky ROCKS Roddy, ROCKS him again, but Roddy bails out. Rocky goes after Roddy on the apron, but Roddy lifts! Rocky fights that to then elbow Roddy! But Rocky has to watch out for The Kingdom lurking! Roddy BOOTS Rocky, then POSTS him! Rocky falls to the floor, Roddy hops down and he drags Rocky up. Roddy gives Rocky a RAILING BACKBREAKER! Rocky writhes, The Kingdom mocks him more, and Roddy drags Rocky up.

Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS! Roddy wobbles, Rocky KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS!

Rocky CHOPS, whips, but Roddy reverses. Rocky reverses back to kick, but Roddy ducks the enzigiri! Rocky REWIND HEEL KICKS! Roddy flops out of the ring and the fans fire up!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (denies Rocky Romero a title opportunity)

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?

 

ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?


My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

PLAY BY PLAY

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?

 

Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?

 

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?

 

Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

The bell rings and the fans rally up. Lee and Shibata circle, Ogogo joins commentary to say the “skull cracking, jaw jacking Gov’nah is back in AEW.” Shibata and Lee clinch, go around, and Shibata waistlocks.

The fans boo while Ogogo rejoins commentary and the ring count begins. Lee mockingly applauds and Ogogo pretends not to know what happened. The count is 8! 9! Shibata springs in at 9.9! But Lee CLOBBERS Shibata, covers, TWO!!

Lee flops in a corner, Shibata fires more forearms on him! Shibata UPPERCUTS, then JABS, then COHPS! JAB CHOP JAB CHOP!

Lee sits down, Shibata COHPS and CHOPS and runs, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! The fans fire up for Shibata’s signature and STP looks upset! Shibata snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Lee stays in this and both men catch their breaths, but Shibata gets Lee up. Lee switches around to COBRA TWIST! The fans rally as Shibata endures, and Shibata pries at the grip.

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?

 

Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?

 

Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?

 

Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?

 

Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up.

AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

AZM ducks ‘n’ dodges, trips Storm then keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Basement dropkick! The fans fire up as AZM kips up again! AZM pushes Storm around, steps on her, and the ref counts. AZM steps away at 4, the fans rally up, and AZM runs to DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, ONE!! Storm toughs it out and the fans rally as AZM goes to the apron. AZM climbs, Storm DECKS her! Storm then runs to HIP ATTACK AZM to the floor! AZM tumbles away to the ramp, but Anna gets Mariah in a QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! Mariah RAMS Anna into railing! Mariah and Anna fight now, the fans fire up, and AZM gets outta the way!

Storm is flabbergasted as Anna and Mariah brawl their way to the back! Storm fetches AZM but AZM whips her into steel steps! Then AZM pushes Storm around, goes up the apron, and fans fire up for the PENALTY KICK! Storm is dazed but the fans fire up as Collision goes picture in picture.

AZM shoves Storm in, goes up top, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Storm flounders all the way across the ring! AZM storms over to drag Storm up, but Storm HOTSHOTS her! AZM flounders, Storm stomps her, and then Storm CHOPS AZM down! Storm pushes AZM around, flexes, then brings AZM up. Storm whips AZM, BOOTS AZM down, then flexes again.

Storm stomps AZM, drags her up, and Collision returns to single picture as Storm stomps AZM in a corner. Storm pie faces AZM, taunts her, but AZM rises. The fans fire up as AZM fires forearms! Storm ROCKS AZM in return! AZM fires another forearm, Storm ROCKS her again! AZM fires more forearms, then blocks a kick to ROUNDHOUSE!

AZM runs, but Storm HEADBUTTS! But AZM returns to LA MYSTICA! Then BUZZSAW! Both women are down and the fans fire up! AZM sits up first, brings Storm up, and then runs, but Storm CHOKES her!

AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?

 

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

To raise the stakes on this match, The Young Bucks VS FTR Part 4, it will be a LADDER MATCH! No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands? Or can Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood find a way to come out on top?

 

The Don Callis Family speaks.

Kyle Fletcher says tonight in the main event, he and Will Hobbs are on a mission for the Don Callis family. That is to protect the golden goose. This Wednesday Night Dynamite, Claudio will end up a cakewalk for Ospreay! And Dynasty, Bryan will be the exact same thing, all thanks to DCF. Hobbs says not to worry about next week, let’s just focus on tonight. Tonight, they got Claudio and Danielson, and tonight the DCF expects a hefty fine. Bryan might as well just expect not to walk out on his own. One last message has been sent, but now it’s time to put up or shut up! Will the Protostar & Powerhouse pulverize the BCC?

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
