Rush survives, but Moxley is right on him! SLEEPER!! Rush is facing, turning red, BULLY CHOKE!!! RUSH IS OUT, MOX WINS!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission (still Interim AEW World Champion)

Moxley even flips off La Faccion Ingobernables to make a good point that you don’t piss him off. But wait! Chris Jericho is headed out to the ring? And of course, he has the Jericho Appreciation Society with him! And that includes the newest member, Anna Jay! Angelo Parker has the music cut and says this garbage town of Worcester doesn’t get to sing Judas! But here IS something the AEW Galaxy can do: APPRECIATE THEM! Jericho knew he had to come out here and congratulate Moxley on an amazing match. Mox has done a great job as interim champion, he is on a roll! But it is nothing compared to the roll the JAS is on!

Look at tonight: in tonight’s main event, it’ll be Daniel Garcia VS Bryan Danielson. And Garcia will kick Bryan’s stupid head in to finish the job Jericho started! Sammy Guevara is gonna ANNIHILATE Dante Martin, Tay Conti by his side. And now they’ve got Anna! Anna called Jericho for an opportunity, the JAS gave her one, and it paid off huge! Anna has a mic to say, “You’re damn right I took that opportunity. I’m a new Anna Jay. Anna Jay A S!” She’s the sexiest and toughest, and she isn’t afraid to prove it! She’ll choke everyone out if she has to! And that’s the intensity Jericho had last week when Eddie Kingston brutalized him!

Kingston left Jericho in a pool of blood and broke his nose before throwing him into a barbed wire spiderweb where Jericho had to be cut out like a horsefly! Fans chant for Eddie Kingston but Jericho says he still BEAT Eddie Kingston! He beat Eddie! He did!! And Moxley, Jericho’s gonna beat you! After two-and-a-half years, Jericho is demanding a rematch for the AEW World Championship!! And in two weeks, Quake by the Lake, when Jericho wins, he’ll be the first-ever TWO-TIME AEW LE CHAMPION!! Moxley says, “God, I hate you, Chris Jericho.” And Moxley hates this “sports entertainment BS” they’re doing.

By the way, take this “interim” and shove it up your ass! Moxley IS a two-time world champion. And Moxley used to look up to Jericho, which is why this is so sad. Moxley believes that Jericho is in his own way the greatest. Jericho has done everything everywhere. But this JAS Wizard Le Champion stuff is all pathetic. And this isn’t the World Sports Entertainment Championship of the Galaxy, this is the AEW World Championship! THE Championship of Professional Wrestling! Moxley made it that way and he’ll keep it that way! If Jericho wants to step to Moxley, if he has the balls to do that, then leave all that trash at home.

He means all the ones carrying Jericho’s bags. Jericho can carry his own bags. Moxley doesn’t want the Wizard, Le Champion, the King of Trademarks or whatever he is this week> Moxley wants the guy he saw on VHS tapes and magazines. The guy in Super J Cup! Moxley wants THE LIONHEART!! And if the AEW World Championship is to be defended on Moxley’s watch, it’ll be Moxley VS the last survivor of the Hart Dungeon, Lionheart Chris Jericho! This is for the world title, and anyone else but the best need not apply. The Maniac throws down the gauntlet and the ball is now in Jericho’s court. Will Jericho bring back that Jericho to get back on top?

 

AEW is introducing the World Trios Championships!

The tournament to crown the inaugural Trios Champions is coming, and it will all culminate at ALL OUT! Who will be in? And who will go all the way to win these belts in the Windy City?

 

Backstage interview with Dante Martin.

Tony Schiavone reminds us that Dante is going 1v1 with Sammy Guevara later on, but that means Dante will have to keep his head on a swivel. Dante says he in fact is doing just that. He already knows Sammy will have Tay ringside, and that’s because Sammy knows he can’t hack it on this roster anymore. Sammy’s been taking too many vacations around the world, snacking on grapes and getting his feet rubbed while Dante’s been sitting in the ring, working week in and week out, earning the fans’ respect. Does Sammy remember what that’s like? But Dante has someone in his corner tonight, and that is Skye Blue! Angel Dorado has Skye watching his back, will he be feeling sky high taking out the Spanish God?

 

FTW Championship: Ricky Starks VS Danhausen!

The gold doesn’t stop flowing in AEW! Absolute Ricky Starks put out the open challenge, but he didn’t expect it to be answered by the Overlord! Will Starks avoid getting cursed this close to Boston? Or will this title soon be Very Nice, Very Evil?

Starks’ entrance has a video package to start. “What makes a champion? Is it the respect on his name? Is it the commas in his bank account? Is it the foes he’s conquered? Maybe what makes a champion is what he’s destined to do, and who he’s destined to be. And this man’s destiny isn’t written in stone, but in gold. A future this bright, a legacy this heavy, can only belong to one champion, and he is… Absolute.” Starks makes his way out to the ring, but will he keep that future of his as bright as he wants it to be?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we really will see what makes a champion!

Starks and Danhausen circle and fans rally up. They’re torn between the two, and Danhausen builds up power. To pose like Starks! But then Starks BOOTS him down for it! Starks hears the fans booing but he just mocks Danhausen’s curse pose, to then go into his pose extra hard. But Danhausen BOOTS back! And then NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, ONE!! Danhausen gets the arm and hooks Starks up but Starks elbows free and ENZIGURIS! Danhausen is in a corner, Starks runs in but Danhausen dodges! Starks hits buckles, Danhausen rolls him up, TWO!! Starks clutches his neck, but he still dodges the haymaker to SPEAR!! Cover, Starks wins!

Winner: Ricky Starks, by pinfall (still FTW Champion)

That was quick! But Starks gets a mic to say “HAH! Very nice, Very Evil, but you’re not Absolute! And just like last week, oh my God, I’ve still got a little bit left in the tank. So let’s bring out another challenger, and I’m for real this time.” Taz is confused but Starks wants another opponent! So who will answer this newest open challenge? HOOK!! Taz’s own son, the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil wants his dad’s belt! He’s even wearing orange shorts! Hook goes to the ring and fans are thunderous! Starks said he was for real, is he going to follow through? HE IS! The FTW Championship is on the line in back-to-back matches, but will it be back-to-back wins for the Absolute?

FTW Championship: Ricky Starks VS Hook!

The bell rings Hook steps to Starks. Fans are thunderous, Starks takes a deep breath, and he swings! Hooks ducks, fires off body shots, and he backs Starks down! Hook HEADBUTTS Starks, whips, but Starks reverses only for Hook to reverse back! Drop step and a clinch, pump handle, BLACK SUNSHINE SUPLEX! Starks flounders and fans fire up for Hook! Hook clamps onto Starks but Starks ROCKS him with a right! And CHOPS him! And brings him around to hit a BIG back suplex! Hook gets to ropes, Starks whips him but Hook flips through the hip toss! Hook hooks Starks up but Starks rolls him up! Hook rolls through, but Starks SPEARS!!

Starks fires up, drags Hook up and gut wrenches, but Hook slips around to the REDRUM!!! Starks flails, reaches out, drops but Hook rolls with him!! STARKS TAPS, HOOK WINS!!

Winner: Hook, by submission (NEW FTW Champion)

Starks sputters, he will surely regret that they decided to #SendHook! And Hook has his first title in AEW! Team Taz fist bumps to show respect. Will Hook take this title to new heights as an undefeated champion?

 

AEW returns with Tony Schiavone in the ring.

He is with Ricky Starks, and now “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, in the aftermath of the title match. Starks is no longer FTW Champion, but he did want a second match. What is Starks’ reaction to all this? Starks says he lost, and he’s no stranger to that, and he’s okay with that. But he wants everyone to know something: he was given that title when people thought it was a noose, and he turned it into a tie. He made the most of that metal and leather and made it into gold! He brought it back to prominence, no one else can say that! Starks did that! And Starks exceeded all expectations and busted his ass, never giving less than 100%.

Starks deserves to be here talking to all the fans for more than 40 seconds. He deserves that! Fans cheer that sentiment as Starks says people in the back are telling him, “Hey, be patient. Wait your turn. The time is gonna come.” Starks is sick of hearing that! His time was last month, last year, and it’s RIGHT NOW! Starks doesn’t want people to say this is a string of bad luck. It’s not a string of bad luck, but just bad timing. That is why Starks & Hobbs- HOBBS CLOBBERS STARKS!??! The Powerhouse betrays Starks and fans can’t believe it! Taz is furious, but Hobbs isn’t done! He drags Starks up for a SPINEBUSTER!

Hobbs snarls as he stands over Starks and fans boo! No one can believe Hobbs would do this to Starks, but what does this mean for Team Taz?

 

The Acclaimed speak.

Max Caster says, “Yo, listen! Last week on Rampage, The Acclaimed roasted the Ass Boys in a rap battle.” Anthony Bowens says, “That’s right.” Caster says that obviously the Gunn Club doesn’t like that, cuz they attacked The Acclaimed. So for that, The Acclaimed will just roast the Gunn Club again. That’s right! Y’know, just to be jerks about it. That’s right! And the Gunn Club will have to watch The Acclaimed’s new music video, because that is how you’ll find out the stipulations The Acclaimed and the Ass Boys are having.

Bowens says if the Ass Boys wanna hit The Acclaimed in the head with garbage cans, then they better get real comfy. Bring some ass wipes, bring some ass cream, and even wear chaps for all Bowens cares. Friday night, The Acclaimed is taking out the TRASH Boys! That’s right! Everyone loves The Acclaimed, and everyone’s gonna love this music video. Friday is trash day, and that’s a mic drop! Just how badly will Platinum Max burn the Gunn Club? And just how violent will their grudge match get?

 

Sammy Guevara w/ Tay Conti VS Dante Martin w/ Skye Blue!

The Spanish God has his Brazilian Goddess in his corner, but the numbers will be even for once. Will Sammy be able to survive against Angel Dorado when things are fair? Or will SamTay still be able to pull one over on Dante and Skye?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally up, Dante and Sammy tie up, and Sammy arm-drags Dante. Dante comes back but Sammy runs him over. Sammy runs the ropes but he fakes out Dante’s drop down. Dante avoids Sammy’s stomp, kicks him in the butt, then headlocks. Sammy powers out, hurdles, and flips over Dante to DROPKICK! Sammy kips up smooth but fans boo. Sammy spins and poses, Tay laughs, but Dante storms up on him. Sammy CHOPS Dante, ROCKS him, then whips him to ropes. Things keep moving, Dante hurdles and shoves to drop and hurdle and DROPKICK back! Dante mocks Sammy’s muy loco.

Sammy gets up in a huff and rushes in, but Dante dodges Sammy and mocks his lounging pose! Dante kips up smooth, too! Anything Sammy can do, Dante can do, too! But Sammy ROCKS Dante, tosses him out, and builds speed to slide. Dante slides in at the same time! Then WRECKS Sammy with a dropkick! Dante builds speed, but he fakes Sammy out, springboarding backwards while Sammy slides in! Superhero landing to stare Sammy down! Fans fire up for the #INHUMAN Dante but Sammy bails out. Sammy calls to Tay, he says they don’t need this. Fans boo but Dante chases them down and CLOBBERS Sammy from behind!

Dante drags Sammy up to toss him off the ramp! Then Dante goes to the center to build speed and FLY!! Direct hit with the tope and fans are thunderous! Tay shouts at Dante but Dante gets back in the ring while fans lose their minds.

AEW goes picture in picture as Tay checks on Sammy. The ring count starts, Dante calls Skye over, and she hops onto the apron so he can give her a kiss on the cheek. Dante can fly and he can charm the ladies. Dante paces while waiting on Sammy. Sammy crawls, Tay shouts at fans taunting him, and Sammy manages to stand. Sammy goes up the steps and gets in the ring, but Dante DROPKICKS him right back out! Dante goes out after Sammy to put him in now, and Tay throws a bit of a fit. Dante gets in the ring, but Sammy kicks the ropes! The ropes hit Dante low, and Sammy snap suplexes! Cover, TWO!

Sammy is annoyed but he clamps onto Dante with a chinlock. Dante endures the squeeze while the fans rally up. Dante fights up, throws body shots, but Sammy CLUBS him. They brawl, Dante ROCKS Sammy, then goes up, but Sammy shoves him away! Sammy POSTS Dante! Dante flops to the steel steps and Skye check son him. Sammy spins and lounges again, then does “snow angels.” Dante manages to get back in the ring but Sammy is right on him. Sammy drags Dante around, kicks him around, then throws forearms. Dante leans against ropes but Sammy brings him in, only for Dante to block the bomb lift.

Dynamite returns to single picture as Sammy CLUBS away on Dante. Dante back drops Sammy up and out! Sammy tumbles to the floor and fans fire up! Dante builds speed to go up and springboard into the JUMP KNEE! Sammy shoots Dante out of the sky and he gets back in the ring. Sammy builds speed as fans boo, to TORNILLO! Direct hit and both men are down, but Sammy lounges at the ramp. Sammy puts Dante in, runs up, spins Dante around and SPANISH FLIES! Cover, TWO! Tay is frustrated on Sammy’s behalf but Sammy slashes his throat. He drags Dante up, torture racks, but Dante fights free!

Dante hooks the arms to backslide, TWO! Sammy knees but Dante blocks! Sammy boots Dante away, but Dante goes up and over to then get around and spin Sammy into a BACK SUPLEX FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Dante is furious but he hobbles his way to a corner. Dante takes aim, springboards, but Sammy goes up after him! Sammy stops the Nosedive with body shots, and SUPER BACK SUPLEXES! Only for Dante to land on his feet! Fans are thunderous and Sammy is furious! Sammy runs, into a SPANISH FLY from Dante!! Cover, TWO!! Dante hurries to hook Sammy up, HALF NELSON SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO!!

Dante snarls, Tay shouts at him but Dante goes out to the apron. Dante tells Tay to stay back, and he springboards. Sammy gets outside before the Nosedive, to copy the flight pattern and SUPER CUTTER!! Sammy vows to end this and he gets Dante up! Torture rack, GO TO HOSPITAL!! Cover, Sammy wins!

Winner: Sammy Guevara, by pinfall

Sammy talks trash on Skye then kisses Tay, but then Sammy stomps Dante! Tay even stomps Dante! Sammy drags Dante to a drop zone and climbs up top, but Skye gets in the ring! Tay turns Skye around and the ladies talk trash, but here comes Anna Jay! Anna CLOBBERS Skye from behind! TayJay are still BFFs and they beat up Skye! They set Skye up to SLAP her, but here comes RUBY SOHO! The Runaway isn’t alone, she has Ortiz and Eddie Kingston with her! They all run SamTayJay off and fans are fired up! The JAS rolls deep but so do their enemies! Will the “sports entertainers” be put in their place before the summer’s over?

 

Backstage interview with Daniel Garcia.

Schiavone says the main event for tonight is the returning Bryan Danielson taking on Daniel Garcia, so this must be one of the biggest nights of Garcia’s career. Garcia says he hasn’t heard Bryan’s name in a couple months. Where’s he been? Garcia knows he’s been in the ring, getting sharper, getting better. Has Bryan? Has Bryan been getting better? Or has he just been gardening with the wife and kids? Garcia is fresh and sharp, and if Bryan hesitates for even a moment tonight, Garcia will take advantage. Garcia will send Bryan back on vacation, and then they’ll be calling Garcia the Greatest Technical Sports Entertainer in the World.

 

Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh speak.

Sonjay starts by saying, “This past Saturday night, ROH Death Before Dishonor, my best friend, my man, Jay Lethal-” But speaking of which, Lethal cuts him off. Lethal doesn’t wanna talk about DBD, even though Samoa Joe won with an “illegal choke,” Lethal wants to talk about more pressing issues. Namely, the unfinished business between them and the Best Friends! Oh, those clowns call themselves “Best Friends?” This trio here are real best friends! But then in walk Best Friends! Trent can’t believe these guys are gonna talk trash when Best Friends are three feet away in their tie dye suits.

Chuck Taylor says, “Fellas, our dance card for Friday Night Rampage is looking pretty empty. And y’know ya bois like ta dance.” Trent lets Lethal and his guys know Chuck means “wrestle.” And they don’t really mean Sonjay, because they know he doesn’t have what it takes anymore. What?! He doesn’t have what it takes?! Look at these muscles! Sonjay still has it! So they’re on! Friday night, a TRIOS match! Best Friends VS “the Original Playa from the Himalayas” is back! Lethal asks Sonjay what he’s doing, and even Sonjay realizes what he just did! Why didn’t they stop him!? They’re screwed!

 

Schiavone is in the ring again.

“Ladies and gentlemen here in Worcester, let’s bring in the one and only, JUNGLE BOY!” Fans fire up to see JB, who came back after what Christian Cage did to him. And yes, Luchasaurus is with him! Jurassic Express is reunited and with a lot of pyro! They go to the ring, and the jacket JB is wearing is the very one Christian Cage draped over him a month ago. Schiavone says after weeks and weeks of horrible, disparaging remarks from Christian, finally, JB gets to respond. JB take a moment to gather his thoughts, then he shouts, “Christian Cage, you are the biggest P*SSY I have ever met in my entire life!!” Fans fire up for JB’s rage!

JB continues to say, “I have watched you come out here for weeks and talk all sorts of BS about my entire family. Congratulations, by the way. You are now the most relevant you have ever been in your entire career. But as soon as I get back here, you tuck your tail and you run! And I didn’t really get it at first, what you’re so angry about.” Christian says this was all because of that battle royal like a year ago. Guess Christian missed out on some bonus or whatever. But for someone who has been wrestling for as long as Christian has, that shouldn’t be that big of a deal, right?

But then JB thought a bit more and realized why Christian needed that money so badly. Christian is strapped for cash, because his wife had just divorced his ass! JB is returning fire on Christian, and even tells the former Mrs. Charisma to give JB a call. Schiavone has this calm down and asks about last week, the surprising reunion with Luchasaurus. Luchasaurus had been with Christian this whole time. JB says that just like all the villains in movies with the turtlenecks and small dongs–what do you think happened with the wife?–Christian needed someone to protect him. He found himself a monster in Luchasaurus.

But that monster is also JB’s best friend! And what Christian didn’t realize is that Luchasaurus was only protecting Christian from everyone but JB! Because no one is going to get their hands on Christian before Jungle Boy! And Christian’s made it clear that his only goal is to hurt JB. Well, if Christian wants to talk trash, he can talk trash. Say whatever you can think off, because JB can take it. If you wanna swing a chair and hit JB in the chair, swing it as hard as you can, because JB can take it! But three years ago, JB was standing in a dirt hole with his uncle Dave and a shovel, watching his tears fall into the dirt and turn it into mud. JB had to dig his father’s grave-

Christian interrupts from backstage and wants this all to stop. JB realizes what’s going on, and Christian says he doesn’t mean to interrupt anyone’s time here, but something real quick. Luchasaurus is JB’s best friend? Well, that was a big mistake, big man. We’ve seen where Christian can guide Luchasaurus. Luchasaurus was walking through people! His future was nothing but main events and gold for days, but he threw that all away just to remain JB’s lapdog. Now, JB thinks Christian ran off because he was scared of JB? No, Christian ran off because he was scared of what he was going to do to JB if he stayed.

See, if JB thinks that Con-Chair-To hurt, he ain’t seen nothing yet! And how fitting that JB has Christian’s old jacket that he draped over him. Because the next thing Christian drapes over JB will be a body bag! And JB won’t have to worry about Christian disparaging his dearly departed daddy, because JB can cozy up right beside him! Christian says JB may have the monster, but Christian has the advantage. JB told Christian all his secrets. So now Christian will prey on that weakness. What is Captain Charisma planning to do to Jurassic Express next?

 

The Young Bucks are on the Cutler Cam.

Brandon says they’re live, and Nick Jackson says they didn’t want to do this again. Matt tells Brandon to cut the camera feed, but Brandon says they got their time approved. No, it doesn’t matter, turn the camera off. But what about the Trios tournament? Oh? Tell us more about that. Well, they just announced it that there will be the first-ever AEW Trios Champions at All Out. All their other friends are gone, Cutler’s a pretty good third wheel. Uh, no chance, Brandon. Now cut the feed! Aw, c’mon, really? Cutler can get better! But then they bump into Hangman Page! The Cowboy was rehydrating and he says hey. They say happy birthday to him, he says thanks.

And Nick’s birthday is tomorrow, right? Happy birthday then. Thanks. Okay, okay, for the longest time, Matt has been meaning to talk to Hangman, but… And now the Dark Order walks over. They say happy birthday to Hangman, and John Silver says they would’ve brought cake but they kinda ate it. So instead, here’s some broccoli! Evil Uno points out that the Bucks are here. Is everything okay, Hangman? Yeah, guys, it’s fine. But the Bucks say it’s fine, good to see them all. The Bucks and Cutler head out, and Cutler says that was awkward. Shut up, Brandon, and cut the camera! Cutler lingers on the Dark Order talking birthday party ideas with Hangman, but could there perhaps be a chance of a reunion here?

 

2v1 Handicap Match: Tony Nese & Mark Sterling VS Swerve Strickland!

You’d think this was an unfair match, but considering The Premier Athlete has “Smart Mark” as his tag partner, it makes sense a ringside ban on Keith Lee was weaseled into effect. Will Nese & Sterling tipping the scales be enough to win? Or will Worcester become Swerve’s House?

The bell rings and Nese starts for his team. Fans rally, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” as Swerve and Nese circle. Swerve swipes at Sterling but he gets away, and Nese CLOBBERS Swerve in the corner! Nese stomps away, whips corner to corner, but Swerve goes up and over! Keith is at least watching backstage as Swerve O’Conner Rolls to an Eddy Gordo headscissors! Nese kicks but Swerve blocks to slip around, leg capture BACKBREAKER! Swerve runs to LARIAT! Fans fire up as Swerve goes out after Sterling! Sterling says he’s not legal, Swerve shouldn’t touch him! Nese slides out but Swerve ROCKS him first!

Swerve ROCKS Nese again, follows him around the ring and puts Nese in. Swerve brings Nese up but Nese throat chops! The ref reprimands but Sterling cheers. Nese runs in at the corner but Swerve puts him on the apron. Swerve ROCKS Nese, HOTSHOTS the arm, and Nese falls to the floor! Nese shakes out his arm, but Swerve is on the apron. Sterling grabs Swerve’s hair! The ref reprimands, Swerve swipes at Sterling, but Nese YANKS Swerve down! Swerve hits the apron on the way down and Nese mocks the “Whose House?” chants as AEW goes picture in picture.

Nese and Sterling soak up the heat while Nese stomps Swerve around. Nese drags Swerve up, ROCKS him with a haymaker, and puts Swerve in the ring. Nese stalks Swerve, brings him around to throw knees and body shots, then he whips Swerve to ropes. Nese CLOBBERS Swerve with an elbow, covers, TWO! Sterling applauds and tags in so he can stomp Swerve around. Swerve gets to a corner, Sterling stomps a mudhole in, and Sterling lets off to swagger and soak up the heat. Then he tags Nese back in and Nese stomps Swerve back down. Nese drags Swerve up, puts him in the corner and whips corner to corner hard!

Swerve bounces off buckles and writhes on the mat, but Nese keeps him in the ring. Nese puts Swerve back in a corner, talks trash, but Swerve pulls hair! Nese whips Swerve corner to corner hard again! Swerve BOOTS Nese, sunset flips, but Nese rolls through to SOBAT! Cover, TWO! Nese was smart to keep Swerve’s arm from the ropes, but Swerve still gets out on his own. Nese drags Swerve up, brings him over, and Sterling has his boot at the ready. But then Nese swerves Swerve by whipping him to ropes and CLOBBERING him again! Nese wraps on the body scissors to put on the squeeze!

Swerve endures, Nese slaps him around, but Swerve grabs at Nese. Swerve ROCKS Nese with haymakers but Nese claws at Swerve’s face! Dynamite returns to single picture as fans duel, “We Want Mark~!” “NO WE DON’T!” Swerve endures the squeeze more and he reaches out. Swerve turns around to rain down fists on Nese! Nese kicks Swerve away, brings Swerve up but Swerve shoves him. Swerve swipes at Sterling but Nese ROCKS him again. Nese whips, Swerve ducks ‘n’ dodges to then BOOT Nese into Sterling! That’s a tag! Sterling freaks out but Swerve chases after. Nese drags Swerve from the ropes, but Swerve ROCKS Nese with a right!

Nese wobbles, Swerve runs in at the corner, BIG uppercut to a snapmare, and then Swerve goes up, FALLING UPPERCUT! Fans fire up and Swerve fire sup, too! Sterling has to get in, he’s the legal man! Swerve grins, knowing that, but Nese grabs Swerve again. Swerve tosses Nese out, sweeps the legs and SUPERKICKS him into dangling from the ropes! SLINGSHOT KILL STOMPS! Nese is down and Swerve chases Sterling! Sterling runs into the ring but that’s what Swerve wants! Sterling says he’s been kidding around but Swerve says, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” HOUSE CALL!! Cover, Swerve wins!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall

A major miscalculation from Sterling costs him and Nese here, but wait! Someone has clobbered Keith Lee! It’s JOSH WOODS! And he’s got the goods, i.e. Keith Lee’s AEW World Tag Team Championship! Swerve spots that on the titantron, and then Nese CLOBBERS Swerve! Nese grabs Swerve’s belt, and it seems Sterling’s #PremierGoods are coming for the Limitless House! Will Nese & Woods refuse to #BaskInTheirGlory and take those titles?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “There’s no need for this confusion, Miro. You and I both know that this entire world is a giant hoax. Hell, we live in a society where we worship people that add nothing of value. God? The Devil? We’re the same thing nowadays. And that’s where men like you and me come into play. Now while you call it ‘redeeming,’ I’d call it balancing out the uneven.” Miro has spent his life worshipping the throne. Malakai can make it to where Miro sits upon that throne! And then everyone will kneel to Miro.

Brody King walks in to tell Darby Allin it’s ironic. “You have the words, ‘Nothing’s over until I’m underground,’ tattooed across your chest.” It turns out, Brody King attacked Darby at San Diego Comic-Con! And does Darby know why Brody does that? Because he can. And it won’t stop until Darby’s casket drops. So Darby, Brody is here to beat him at his own game. Darby VS Brody, COFFIN MATCH! Let them know what kind of flowers you want on your headstone. The House of Black sends two deadly messages to their enemies, but will one join them while the other leaves this mortal plane?

 

The Undisputed Elite returns next week!

Adam Cole, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly are all healed up, what will they have to say about the AEW World Trios Championships?

 

AEW Women’s World Championship: Thunder Rosa VS Miyu Yamashita!

La Mera Mera traveled to Japan to give the best of Tokyo Joshi Pro a golden opportunity. The Pink Striker got that chance, and she struck Rosa down to earn that golden ticket! Will Miyu cash that in here tonight? Or will Rosa prove you don’t strike Thunder down twice?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Thunder’s reign dries up in the summer heat!

Rosa and Miyu stare down as fans rally up, and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Rosa waistlocks. Miyu wrenches out to wristlock but Rosa returns the favor.

Rosa SHOTGUNS Miyu down! Rosa asks them cameraman if he saw that! Rosa then drags Miyu up, CHOPS her, then CHOPS her against railing! The ref wants this to get back in the ring but Rosa brings Miyu around to whip. Miyu jumps off the apron, FLYING CHUCK! Fans fire up and Miyu has an ice cold yet smoldering look on her face as AEW goes picture in picture.

Miyu stalks Rosa, drags her up and puts her in the ring. Miyu stomps Rosa, covers her, ONE!! Rosa snarls but Miyu KICKS her in the back! Rosa flounders but Miyu covers, TWO!

Rosa crawls to ropes but Miyu stalks over to her. Rosa rams into Miyu but Miyu BOOTS Rosa! Miyu whips, Rosa reverses, but Miyu blocks! Rosa RHODES UPPERCUTS! Then she kicks and STUNNERS! Miyu flounders now and Rosa fires up! AEW returns to single picture as Rosa runs corner to corner, A-LIST LARIAT! Miyu sits, Rosa goes up, SWINGING KNEES! Rosa puts Miyu on ropes and fans rally as Rosa runs, DROPKICK to the back!

Fans fire up as Rosa keeps moving, DROPKICK to the front! Then the NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO!! Miyu is still in this but fans rally.

Rosa bounces off buckles, Miyu runs up the buckles and FLYING CHUCKS again! Rosa wobbles, Miyu SPIN HEEL KICKS!! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Rosa survives but Miyu waits on her to get back up.

Bryan Danielson VS Daniel Garcia!

The American Dragon returns and he’s ready to breathe fire and kick heads in! But will his time away cost him? Or can Bryan survive the razor sharp Red Death?

The ref wants this in the ring but Garcia drags Bryan to the bare patch! DDT to the concrete floor!! Fans boo and Garcia grimaces. The ref reprimands Garcia while AEW goes picture in picture.

Garcia backs down as the ref yells at him, and even Garcia seems unsure if Bryan can continue. But then Garcia storms over, only for the ref to back him down again.

Bryan endures, but Garcia goes way back!!! Bryan can’t get any traction! BRYAN PASSES OUT! GARCIA WINS!!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

And it was JAKE HAGER under the ring! Hager and Jericho celebrate with Garcia as the JAS screws Bryan over again! Jericho is going after Moxley’s title, will Garcia use this win to claim his own shot at some gold?


My Thoughts:

An awesome night for this year’s Fight for the Fallen! A rather surprising match order, but it all worked out for what AEW is setting up these next couple of months. Moxley VS Rush was a great opener, and of course Andrade tries to screw Moxley over, only for the Lucha Bros to run him off. And of course Moxley retains to keep going strong. Jericho making a challenge was expected, and I like that we’re getting it at a brand new themed episode instead of stretching it until All Out. Moxley had a great promo to not only state that he might as well be THE champion, and to dare Jericho to get even more serious than he just did against Eddie Kingston. That match at “Quake by the Lake” is going to be awesome, and honestly, it could go either way. Moxley and Jericho would both give Punk an awesome match.

Following the AEW World Championship right up with the FTW Championship was surprising, too, but also great. I should’ve figured Starks would put Danhausen away easily, but what a turn of events right after! Starks VS Hook was also quick, Hook gets a huge win and is now the champion. And then Hobbs turns on Starks after all the tease of Swerve and Keith breaking up, that was incredibly shocking. But given Taz was upset, Hobbs must be wanting to break away from Team Taz since it hasn’t gotten him anything but losses. Hobbs VS Starks will be great, Hobbs possibly going after Hook will be great, Hobbs going after any of the champions will be great, Hobbs is just great.

Speaking of champions, FINALLY! AEW World Trios Championships! The tournament is going to be awesome, and we got a great promo from the Bucks, Hangman and Dark Order to tease all the possibilities for that bracket. While the tease is that the #HungBucks will reunite, there could totally be a swerve that Kenny Omega returns and THE Elite go for the titles. And with the Undisputed Elite on their way back, I would love if the finals at All Out is Kenny & Bucks VS Undisputed Era to wrap up that story and crown champions all at once. At the same time, we’re getting Best Friends VS #LethalFriends, the winner of that can definitely claim a spot in the tournament.

Good promo from The Acclaimed to hype up what’s coming in their story with the Gunn Club. The lens flare on the lights behind them made this feel very 90’s but in a good way. And given the trash can thing on Rampage, I would hope we get some kind of No Disqualification match. Good promo from Dante to introduce Skye Blue as an ally, Dante VS Sammy was awesome stuff, but I figured Sammy would win. Soho, Eddie and Ortiz show up, I’m pretty sure we’re getting TayJay VS Soho & Skye on top of the other JAS feuds that need to settle out. And what powerful stuff out of JB and Christian Cage. They were hitting hard with those promos, and I can’t wait to see what we get as a match between them.

The 2v1 Handicap went as I expected, in that Swerve pins Sterling to win. But what a great way of integrating AEW Dark into things for once. Nese and Sterling were scouting Woods, Woods joins them, and now Nese & Woods are a team that wants after Swerve & Keith. If AEW sticks to their “wins and losses matter,” #PremierGoods will have to go on a tear through Dark and Elevation, and maybe even Rampage. Of course, they could try a Tag Title Eliminator, but we’ll wait and see. Strong promos from the House of Black, too. Malakai VS Miro and Brody VS Darby are going to be awesome stuff, and both could go either way.

The women’s title match was really good, and it referenced much of what they did at TJPW Summer Sun Princess. A little clumsy, though, when they were on the apron, maybe some miscommunication between them. I knew Rosa would retain, but I was more surprised that Britt Baker didn’t ruin the moment. But I suppose it is better overall if Britt just waits for the coming tag match of her and Hayter VS #ThunderStorm. And then Bryan VS Garcia was awesome stuff. Bryan did a great job selling being rattled by that missile dropkick landing, and of course he bleeds. But of course the JAS screws Bryan over. If Jericho loses to Moxley, I’d love if we got Jericho VS Bryan. I don’t think we’ve seen that 1v1 match in years, so it’d be great to see them do that in AEW.

My Score: 9/10

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.

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.

Rocky builds speed, fakes Roddy out and DIVES onto Taven! Then Rocky DIVES onto Roddy! Rocky puts Roddy in, runs up, SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Rocky keeps his cool.

Roddy survives again and Rocky is beside himself! The Kingdom is also worried, they rally up for Roddy. The fans rally for Rocky as he goes out to the apron.

Rocky climbs but The Kingdom is lurking again. The ref tells them to back off, but Roddy ROCKS Rocky first! Roddy has Rocky up top but Rocky DECKS Roddy! Rocky adjusts, Roddy stands, METE- STRONG KNEE!! Cover, Roddy wins!

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

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (4/13/24)

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!

Published

on

Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.
  • AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay; Storm wins and denies AZM a title match.
  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.

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.

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!!

Shibata escapes but Lee stalks him to ropes. Lee drags Shibata up but Shibata CHOPS! Lee comes back but Shibata ROCKS him! Lee comes back again, ROCKS Shibata, and Shibata falls over! Lee digs his boots in at the ropes, scrapes Shibata out of the ring, then soaks up the heat.

Lee goes out after Shibata, RAMS him into railing, then taunts everyone while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Shibata gets back in the ring after having wrecked Lee on the outside. But then Lee wrenches Shibata. Shibata ROCKS Lee, Lee wrenches, repeat! Lee CHOPS Shibata, but Shibata doesn’t budge! Lee CHOPS again, but Shibata eggs him on! Lee CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, but Shibata is leaning into the shots! Shibata backs Lee down even though Lee CHOPS again and again! Shibata eggs Lee on, Ogogo coaches Lee, and the CHOPS keep going. Shibata ROCKS Lee with a forearm! 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.

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall

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.

Angelico and Garcia reset, knuckle lock, then Angelico trips Garcia. Angelico rolls Garcia, whips, but Garcia reverses. Angelico rolls off Garcia’s back, Garcia jumps the leg sweep, but not the EDDY GORDO KICK! Angelico wrenches, steps over, LA MAGISTROL! TWO, but Angelico stomps Garcia around.

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. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off! 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!

Storm drags AZM up, waistlocks, but AZM fights!

AZM grabs ropes, Storm drags her back, but AZM arm-drags free! Step over, and AZM SUSHI ROLL! TWO!! Storm escapes, blocks the buzzsaw, then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX!! 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.

Claudio gets a chair and he runs off the DCF, but the damage has been done! Will the American Dragon be able to recover in time for Dynasty?


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
