A huge match that could be a main event anywhere OPENS the night! The Maniac has been rolling since winning this interim title at The Forbidden Door, but El Toro Blanco is coming off a Death Before Dishonor win, defeating his own brother! Will Rush run through Moxley to then await the return of CM Punk? Or will Moxley continue his win streak to have that right?

Rush attacks Mox the second he’s on the apron! The bell rings right as Rush THROWS Moxley into railing! Rush gets Mox up to CHOP then bump off the apron. Rush puts Moxley in the ring, fans rally up but Rush stomps away on Moxley! Rush scrapes Moxley, drags him up and rips his shirt off to CHOP him again. Rush whips corner to corner, SPLASHES, then goes back the other way to SPLASH! Snapmare and basement dropkick! Rush clamps on a chinlock and he BITES Moxley’s forehead! The ref counts, Rush lets off and spits while Moxley bails out. Moxley ends up sitting on a security guard’s lap but Rush moves the guard aside.

Rush SMACKS Moxley off the chair seat, and Moxley is busted open! Rush squeezes Moxley’s head and tastes Moxley’s blood! Rush drags Moxley up to RAM him into railing, then run him and RAM him into more on the other side! Rush snapmares Moxley, refreshes the ring count, and gets a chair! Rush aims, Jose distracts the ref, but Moxley dodges the chair shot! Moxley kicks low but Rush headbutts back! Fans boo but Rush soaks it up, only for Moxley to DIVE! Direct hit and Rush hits railing! Fans are thunderous and Jose is freaking out! Moxley fetches Rush, CHOPS him along the way, and CHOPS him again! And again!

Moxley then brings Rush around to snap suplex Rush to the floor! The ring count is starting up but Moxley gets in the ring. Moxley tells the ref to give him time, and he goes out after Rush again. The ring count starts again, Moxley HEADBUTTS away on Rush! Then he SMACKS Rush off the steel steps! Moxley puts Rush in at 5 of 10, fans rally up and Moxley mocks Rush’s bull horns. Moxley ROCKS Rush as fans chant “F him up, Moxley, F him up!” Moxley stands on Rush in the corner! The ref counts, Moxley steps off at 4, and he paces around while Rush sputters. Moxley drags Rush up but Rush choke grips! Moxley breaks that to CHOP!

Rush CHOPS back so Moxley CHOPS again! They CHOP and CHOP but Rush shoves and SUPERKICKS! Then POWERSLAM on the rebound! Cover, TWO! Moxley survives and Rush is upset, but the ref says that was a fair count. Rush goes after Moxley at the ropes to scrape him then CHOKE him! Rush talks trash but lets off at 4. Rush drags Moxley out and throws body shots. Rush snapmares then gets camera cable to CHOKE Moxley again! The ref reprimands, he has the ring count going, and Rush lets Moxley go at 5 of 10. Rush gets a drink of water while AEW goes picture in picture.

Rush drags Moxley up to CHOP him! Sweat goes flying, Rush stalks Moxley around the way and puts him back in the ring. Moxley sits up in a daze but Rush scuffs him. Moxley sits up again while Rush paces around. Rush snarls as fans rally up, and Moxley CHOPS and CHOPS! Rush CHOPS back and Moxley sits in the corner. Rush stomps away on Moxley, kicks him then runs corner to corner, to jump and KICK! Rush then rolls back and tranquilos! Fans fire up for the original ungovernable and Rush soaks it all in.

The ref checks on both men, Moxley gets up and he throws forearms on Rush> Rush hits back, Moxley hits back, repeat! Fans cheer Moxley and boo Rush as the CHOPS start going back and forth! The CHOPS build up speed, Rush shoves but Moxley bobs ‘n’ weaves to fire off palm strikes! Moxley runs, but into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Moxley is right back up and he gets Rush for a GERMAN SUPLEX!

Moxley powers out, gets the legs, and he STOMPS Rush! DANIELSON STOMPS! The American Dragon is back later tonight but Moxley gets one more shout out to him here. Moxley drags Rush up but Rush RAMS him into a corner. But Moxley shoots around, only for Rush to elbow then CHOP! OVERHEAD Belly2Belly into buckles! Moxley sits up in a daze and fans rally up.

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 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!

Miyu might’ve been a bit cocky on that cover but she clamps back onto Rosa with a chinlock. Rosa endures, fights up, but Miyu throws her with a headlock takeover!

Miyu keeps on Rosa with a chincrusher, but Rosa rolls that to a cover! TWO, and Miyu hurries to kick Rosa again. Rosa gut wrenches to carry Rosa, for a GUTBUSTER! 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.

Fans fire up again with Miyu and she waits on Rosa. Rosa rises, Miyu aims, but Rosa ducks the heel kick to kick low! Rosa scoops Miyu, but Miyu slips off and shoves! 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 moment Bryan’s in the ring, he DROPKICKS Garcia in his corner! The bell rings and Bryan fires off KICKS in the corner!

Bryan climbs up the corner, aims at Garcia, and missile dropkicks him down! Both men are down and fans rally up. The ref checks on Bryan, Garcia hurries to get him with hammer fists! Fans boo, Garcia lets off and flexes, and Bryan crawls to a corner. Garcia drags Bryan up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then whip corner to corner again. Bryan goes up and over! Bryan keeps moving, he ducks but then drops! Is Bryan’s bell rung? The ref checks Bryan again but Bryan rolls out of the ring. Garcia isn’t sure what to do now, but he pursues Bryan. They’re by the bare concrete, but Garcia RAMS Bryan into steel steps first!

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. Garcia goes into the ring, gets up on the corner, and talks trash on Bryan. Bryan looks to be busted open, but the medic checks him for anything else that could be wrong.

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

“Look, guys, I know we gotta do this cold open thing. It’s the cool thing to do on Collision. I don’t have time. I gotta go get ready, I’m 0-1 in this tournament already, I do NOT wanna go 0-2. Bryan, I do respect you, sort of, so I don’t care about your eye, I don’t care about your arm, I don’t care about anything about you. All I care about is winning. So guess what?

That deadly right arm brings down the Swiss Superman, and Brody has six points! Is the Blue League soon going to belong to the House of Black?


Jon Moxley speaks.

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

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

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

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


Abadon VS Kiera Hogan!

With title chases never stopping, the Undead Girl and the Hottest Flame are fighting to get ahead. Who wins here to move up in the rankings towards the champions of AEW?

Backsatge interview with Samoa Joe.

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

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


AEW Continental Classic, Blue League: Andrade El Idolo VS Daniel Garcia!

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

Willie Mack speaks.

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


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

Backstage interview with Ethan Page.

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

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


AEW hears from Willow Nightingale and Mercedes Martinez.

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


Malakai Black & Buddy Matthews VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

Brody took the lead in the Blue League, and Julia has called out her next target. Will the Dark Father and Aussie Juggernaut make sure that the House Always Wins? Or will the Fallen Angel & Zen Assassin finally stake a claim in the AEW Tag Division?

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

The fans chant “HOUSE OF BLACK!” and Malakai drops the mic for FTR to take. Dax picks it up, but Buddy KNEES him down! Cash goes after Buddy but he gets mugged! Cash still throws hands, but Buddy CURB STOMPS him down! Buddy then drags Dax up, and he makes Dax watch as Malakai sets Cash up! BLACK MASS!! Dax is seething but he can’t get free of Buddy’s chinbar, and Malakai says see! Not one single person has come to help them! And was Malakai right or what? No one is coming to help. Dax flips Malakai off, so he gets BLACK MASS!! Is this going to be the end for FTR in AEW once and for all?


Backstage interview with Toni Storm.

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

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


Skye Blue speaks.

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


Christian Cage speaks.

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

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


El Hijo Del Vikingo VS Kip Sabian!

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

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

Vikingo falls back, Kip flexes, and Kip drags Vikingo to a cover, TWO! Kip drags Vikingo into a mounted armlock, but Vikingo endures. Kip BITES Vikingo’s hand!

Vikingo runs in at the corner, but stops as Kip moves. Kip returns, into a scoop and torture rack! Argentine Flip KNEE STRIKE! Like an inverted GTS! Kip falls, Vikingo drags him to a drop zone and goes up the ropes from the outside. INSIDE-OUT PHOENIX SPLASH!! Cover, TWO!! Kip survives and he manages to smile about it. Vikingo drags Kip back to another drop zone, but Kip goes after Vikingo as he climbs!

Vikingo puts Kip back in, runs corner to corner, METEORA! And then Vikingo goes right up, for the 630 SENTON!!! Cover, Vikingo wins!!

Winner: El Hijo Del Vikingo, by pinfall

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


Backstage interview with Keith Lee.

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


Backstage interview with CJ Perry.

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

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


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

The American Dragon was the first entrant named to this tournament, but could not compete in it until now.

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

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

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

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

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.8/10

But will the Very Nice, Very Evil Best Friends be victorious together? Or will the rogues gallery standing against them earn themselves quite a lot of golden opportunities all at once?

But wait, as Big Hurt Hager gets the VNVEBFs to turn their backs, the rogues attack! Fans boo, the bell rings, and all but Danhausen is tossed out of the ring as he tosses Reynolds instead. Uno CLUBS Danhausen, Cassidy is sent into railing, and Uno puts Danhausen in a corner. Uno CHOPS him, soaks up the heat, and then storms up. Danhausen kicks low, throws hands, but Uno kicks back. Uno whips corner to corner, runs in but into a BOOT! Danhausen runs up to RANA! Uno tumbles, fans fire up and Danhausen catches Reynolds as he runs in, wrench and NORTHERN LIGHTS! Fans fire up as Danhausen kicks low and tags Hook.

HookHausen double whip Uno, Uno holds ropes and Menard tags in. Menard, Parker and Reynolds all get in, but then so do Trent and Cassidy! The eight men are stare down, and the brawl is back on! The ref reprimands but the Dark Order & X-JAS get the edge. They all have someone in a corner, then they all coordinate to quadruple whip! But the Best Friends all reverse that, X-JAS and Dark Order crash into each other! And then Best Friends set up in the corners… and Hook needs to be coaxed a little bit, for the GROUP- NO, they all get kicked low! Fans boo as X-JAS & Dark Order reel them in, but the Best Friends QUADRUPLE SUPLEX!

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

Uno CHOPS Cassidy down! Danhausen baits Uno in for a GERMAN SUPLEX! Reynolds runs in, spins Danhausen and ROLLING ELBOWS!

But wait, here comes Wheeler Yuta! The ROH Pure Champion wants to taunt Hook like he has been for weeks now, and then Menard CLOBBERS Hook in the distraction! Yuta joins commentary while Menard bumps Hook off buckles, and reels him in for a big suplex! Tag to Parker and he stomps Hook down. Parker stomps more, then pushes Hook around. Parker tags Uno, they mug Hook. Uno then bumps Hook off the boots of Menard and Reynolds.

Reynolds tags in, he runs side to side to ELBOW Hook! Uno SPLASHES, short arm LARIATS, and Reynolds covers, TWO! Reynolds stands on Hook’s head, fans boo but the Dark Order and X-JAS soak up the heat. But Hook clinches! Reynolds fights with forearms, then he bumps Hook off buckles. Tag to Menard, he stomps Hook then lets off to distract the ref, Uno and Parker CHOKE Hook while Rampage goes picture in picture!

Menard stomps Hook, drags him up, and ROCKS him with a right. Menard pushes Hook around, soaks up the heat, but turns around into a CHOP! Menard trips Hook, drags him back, and tags Parker in. Parker CLUBS Hook down, then stomps him. Parker taunts the Best Friends, flicks his hair gel at them, then goes back to Hook. Parker CLUBS Hook, tags Uno, and they mug Hook some more. Uno scrapes his laces on Hook’s face then tags Parker back in. Parker stomps Hook, but Hook powers Parker back! They end up on ropes, Parker KNEES Hook back! Parker then BLASTS Cassidy off the corner!

Rampage returns to singe picture as Parker goes after Hook, and Hook gets around to NORTHERN LIGHTS! Parker tags Menard but Hook LARIATS Menard down! The fans fire up as Hook and Menard crawl, hot tags to Trent and Uno! Trent rallies on Uno, then on Reynolds! GERMAN SUPLEX! And then another GERMAN SUPLEX! Trent still has Reynolds but Reynolds fights the nelson. Uno runs in but Trent ducks, the BOOT hits Reynolds! Trent HALF ‘N’ HALF SUPLEXES Uno away! Trent runs in at Reynolds but into a BOOT! Reynolds goes up but Trent YANKS him down for a SAIDO! Fans fire up with Trent!

Trent tags Cassidy, and Cassidy storms up to “unleash.” But then he really does fire off BOOT after BOOT on Dark Order! Yuta sighs as this is typical Cassidy. Cassidy dodges the Dark Order’s double lariat to DOUBLE SHOTGUN! Cassidy kips up and the fans fire up! Cassidy ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls, but Uno stops the DDT to suplex! Only to get STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy keeps moving but Uno BOOTS him! Uno hooks Cassidy up, for SOMETHING EVIL! Cover, Trent KNEES it apart! Fans fire up, Reynolds BOOTS Trent! Reynolds runs in to BOOT Cassidy in a corner! Reynolds puts Cassidy up top!

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

Danhausen dodges, Trent & Cassidy dump Hager out! Menard grabs Danhausen, Parker runs in to get the hat back! But Hook gets Parker in the REDRUM!! Menard lets Danhausen go, but Danhausen rolls him up! BEST FRIENDS WIN!

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

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


Backstage interview with The Outcasts & Anna Jay.

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

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


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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


The Don Callis Family VS JAH-C

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

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

Winners: The Don Callis Family, by pinfall

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


Prince Nana & Brian Cage talk with The Workhorsemen.

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

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

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


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

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

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

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

JD then powers Vikingo to ropes to BIEL him across the way! JD taunts Penta, whips Vikingo, but Vikingo ducks ‘n’ dodges again to CORKCCREW RANA!

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

My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.5/10
