PLAY BY PLAY

Jon Moxley is here!

The UNDISPUTED AEW World Champion is in Chicago, and Chicago is fired up to see him entering from the crowd side! Moxley takes his time to enjoy the cheers before getting in the ring. He gets the mic and fans suddenly start chanting for CM Punk, but plenty of fans still chant for Moxley. Moxley shrugs and says, “Chicago, I know you love your boy, but I think they’re still mopping him off the mat in Cleveland.” Fans get real riled up hearing that. But if they wanna talk about it, let’s talk about it! Moxley once heard CM Punk described as, “The Modern Sixty Minute Man.” What a load of crap that turned out to be!

Moxley had 57 minutes left in him last week, but did Punk? Moxley doesn’t think so. “When guys get in the ring with me, the Undisputed AEW World Champion, the heart and soul of AEW, we find out what they’re really made of. I test them, I push them. And last week, we learned exactly what CM Punk is made of. At the moment where he hit me as hard as he could, he gave me his best shot, and he realized I didn’t care. And he knew I was just gonna keep coming forward, and keep coming forward, all night. At that exact moment, he started looking for a way out.” Fans boo but Moxley says it’s true! Punk claimed his foot hurt and he folded up into a little ball to die!

Fans duel again between Moxley and Punk, but Moxley says champions never fold. They have no idea how genuinely sorry Moxley is that Punk didn’t turn out to be what Chicago wanted him to be, or what anyone wanted him to be when he got back into this business. We all gave him a second chance in the greatest sport in the world, and it just didn’t work out. And while Moxley is sorry for that, he knows Chicago loves him,  Moxley has ZERO sympathy for Punk! That is because CM Punk has a fragile ego, fragile body, weak mind and weak spirit. The business is tough, it is what it is, and we move on.

Speaking of, Moxley has in his pocket an Open Challenge contract for a title match at All Out! It’s already signed, so he’ll just leave it right here. Because when he says anybody, anytime, any place, he means it! Fans chant for MJF, but Moxley says who knows who will sign this contract. Maybe it’s someone in AEW, maybe it’s someone from somewhere else. Maybe it’s someone from NJPW. Mox runs that, too! Does Rocky Romero have anyone else left? Let Moxley know! But whoever signs the contract, whoever wants to fight Mox, whoever wants to find out exactly what they’re made of, know this:

Before you step into the ring with Jon Moxley, he can out marathon you, he can out sprint you, he can out fight you, and he can out wrestle you. And it doesn’t matter who you are, he can assure you, he gives far fewer you-know-what’s than you do. He is the UNDISPUTED AEW World Champion, he is the fire-breathing, blood-spitting, living embodiment of pro-wrestling! He is indominable personified! “Wrestling Jon Moxley may be hazardous to your health. Whoever you are, you’ve been warned!” Moxley throws down the challenge, who will accept it to go All Out this Sunday?

 

Wait, someone heads to the ring!

AEW Producer, Ace Steel, grabs up the contract? He is a friend to CM Punk, and he puts the contract in his pocket. Is he going to sign it? Or is he hand delivering it to the Best in the World?

 

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho.

Tony Schiavone reminds us of the 1v1 match between Lionheart Jericho and the American Dragon, Bryan Danielson, this Sunday at All Out. Jericho says the Lionheart VS The American Dragon is a dream match for most, but a nightmare match for one, and that one is Bryan. And Jericho will tell us all why. Last week, Bryan asked if Stu Hart & Owen Hart were still alive, who would they think is the better wrestler between Jericho and Bryan. That has been bugging Jericho all week. Then Jericho realized, the Harts would appreciate Bryan’s wrestling skills a little more, but they would appreciate what Jericho’s done in the business way more.

Jericho has changed the game, accomplished so much, and that would impress Stu & Owen. And those accolades are going to include beating Bryan this Sunday. But in steps Daniel Garcia. He apologizes for being immature and ungrateful, and he pledges his loyalty to the Jericho Appreciation Society through and through. And this Sunday, Garcia knows Jericho will beat Bryan. Jericho’s the Lionheart, the Greatest Of All Time, it won’t even be close. And Garcia knows Jericho won’t need to cheat or attack from behind or have a distraction to do it. All Jericho needs to do is be the best version of himself, because Garcia believes in him.

Jericho appreciates that, and he believes in Garcia, too. Garcia is the most technically gifted Sports Entertainer in the world today! And this Sunday, it will be Lionheart Jericho. But until then, all’s far in wrestling and romance. So watch you back, Bryan! Garcia doesn’t like the sound of that, but will he accept the way Jericho does things now that he’s fully dedicated to the JAS?

Bryan Danielson VS Jake Hager!

William Regal joins commentary, as does Chris Jericho, but this match is meant to be just the American Dragon taking on the Big Hurt. Will Hager put the hurt on Bryan to tenderize him for Lionheart Chris Jericho at All Out?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally for Bryan, but they also still sing some of Judas. Bryan tests the waters with kicks but Hager stays up. Hager pushes Bryan to ropes but Bryan gets free to KICK the leg. Hager shakes that off and circles with Bryan again. Bryan gets a leg but Hager facelocks to block. Hager puts Bryan in the corner while fans taunt him with “WE THE PEOPLE!” The ref counts but Hager throws body shots! The ref counts and reprimands, and Hager lets off at 4. Hager then TOSSES Bryan across the ring! Hager runs in but Bryan BOOTS him! Bryan jumps on but Hager stays up in the Guillotine hold!

Hager grits his teeth and powers up to throw Bryan off! Bryan baits Hager in, throws him out and builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit and Hager hits railing! Fans fire up as Bryan goes the apron for the LEAP, but into Hager’s arms! Hager runs and SPINEBUSTERS Bryan through the timekeeper’s table! Chicago loses its mind over that one! Hager gets up and roars but fans boo. Hager points to Jericho on commentary and then drags Bryan up. Hager POSTS Bryan, then POSTS him again! Bryan writhes, clutching his back, and the ring count climbs. Hager hauls Bryan up to suplex him to the floor! The ref reprimands but Hager gets in the ring to refresh the count.

Hager looms over Bryan, puts him in the ring, then rains down forearms! Bryan guards but Hager just keeps hammering him! Bryan tries to get Hager’s leg but Hager holds off the grapevine to then ROCK Bryan with a right hand! Hager paces around Bryan while fans boo, but Hager hauls Bryan up into a corner. Hager RAMS his shoulder in, lets off as the ref counts, and then he carries Bryan around for a SPINEBUSTER! Fans boo and AEW goes picture in picture.

Hager looms over Bryan, digs his knee into Bryan’s back, and then brings Bryan back with some chicken wings. Bryan endures and fans rally up. Bryan fights up to his feet, puts Hager in a corner, and Hager lets off, to CHOP Bryan down! Bryan throws body shots but Hager CLUBS him! Hager CHOPS Bryan again, and Bryan staggers away to another corner. Hager CHOKES Bryan on the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. Hager stomps Bryan in the corner, lets off again, then digs his boot in. The ref counts as Hager stands on Bryan’s chest, and Hager hops off at 4. Hager blows a kiss to Chicago then drags Bryan up.

Hager tosses Bryan out of the ring, goes out after him, and RAMS him into railing! Fans fire up as Hager RAMS Bryan into more railing! Hager then puts Bryan back in the ring, soaks up the heat from Chicago and flexes as he paces around. Hager stalks Bryan to a corner, stands him up, and throws heavy body shots. Hager hoists Bryan up top, fans rally, and Hager CHOPS Bryan again! Dynamite returns to single picture as Hager climbs, and he CHOPS Bryan again! Hager shows off how big his hand is, and he ROCKS Bryan with haymaker after haymaker! Fans count, Hager stops at 5 because the ref is counting, but Bryan stands up! MISSILE DROPKICK!

Fans fire up while both men are down! Bryan fires himself up as the standing count climbs! Bryan gets to ropes at 4, dodges Hager and fires off KICKS! Hager drops, Bryan KICKS him more and more! Bryan powers up to BUZZSAW! Cover, TWO! But Bryan hurries to clamp on, for HAMMER ‘N” ANVIL ELBOWS! Hager blocks one, snapmares Bryan and then hoists him up! Bryan sunset flips through, but Hager drags him up! Bryan wants the ARMBAR, but Hager stays up to rain down HAMMER FISTS! But Bryan uses that to get a TRIANGLE HOLD! Bryan throws more elbows, but Hager deadlifts him! POWERBOMB!

Hager catches his breath, crawls after Bryan, and he throws down more hammer fists! Bryan again catches Hager, for the omoplata! Hager resists as Bryan reaches for his head, and he pushes Bryan back! ANKLE LOCK! Bryan endures, rolls, and leg picks to get the arm! LEBELL LOCK!! Hager reaches, fans are thunderous, and Hager crawls to the ROPEBREAK! Fans boo but Bryan lets off. Hager gets to a corner, fans rally up and Bryan CHOPS Hager! And KICKS! And CHOPS! And KICKS! Another CHOP, then Bryan runs corner to corner to DROPKICK! Bryan goes again, but Hager scoops him for an URENAGE!

Hager moves around to go for the Head ‘n’ Arm, but Bryan slips around to make it a cover, TWO!! Hager lets off, Bryan dodges him, comes back, BUSAIKU KNEE!! Cover, Bryan wins!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall

Chicago is fired up, but here comes Angelo Parker & Matthew Menard! The JAS won’t let Bryan be in good shape for All Out, they’re mugging him right in the ring! But here comes the BCC! Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta rush the ring and brawl with Cool Hand Ange and Daddy Magic! Claudio TOSSES Parker out of the ring, Yuta kicks Menard out! The brawling continues and Claudio sends Parker up the ramp! Yuta RAMS Menard into railing! Claudio drags Parker to the back and Yuta starts sending Menard that way. But Jericho brings a chair to the ring! Le Champion wants some insurance, but GARCIA rushes out here!

Garcia snatches the chair from Jericho!! Garcia and Jericho argue, they just talked about how Lionheart Jericho shouldn’t need all this! Jericho is upset, he turns around to look for Bryan, and gets a BUSAIKU KNEE for it!! Fans cheer as Bryan gets even with the JAS, and Garcia is conflicted all over again. Will that affirmation of loyalty mean nothing when Jericho isn’t even honest enough to face Bryan head on?

 

The Wingmen are in the ring… protesting?

Peter Avalon, Cezar Bononi, JD Drake & Ryan Nemeth have suddenly appeared, and while the others hold up picket signs with slogans like “MORE WINGMEN ON TBS & TNT,” “MORE WINGMEN ON TV!” and “GIVE THE WINGMEN MORE SCREENTIME,” the Hollywood Hunk has the mic. “Well, well, well! Wednesday night again, and guess who’s not booked again? I’ll give you a clue: it’s the hottest, handsomest, sexiest, prettiest, hunkiest boys on the roster! The Wingmen!” Avalon gets the mic to say, “And from now on, Wednesday nights will be known as Wingman Wednesdays! Pinkies out, boys!”

Wait! W MORRISSEY is here! The 7 foot tall mountain of a man is back in AEW, and he is storming right up to the ring. The Wingmen stand their ground, JD Drake trying to keep everyone calm. But then Bononi rushes Morrissey, and gets a BOOT for it! Nemeth & Avalon try but they get DOUBLE CLOTHESLINES! Drake CHOPS, but Morrissey doesn’t flinch! Morrissey fires up and shouts, “You wanna hit me?!” Drake tries again but Morrissey choke grips! CHOKE SLAM! Stokely Hathaway walks out to the ring now as Morrissey grabs Nemeth, RAMS him into Bononi, then reel shim back in for an even bigger CHOKE SLAM! Morrissey BOOTS Bononi out of the ring!

Fans fire up for Morrissey while Avalon staggers around. Stokely watches from the apron and Avalon begs for mercy! But when Morrissey doesn’t walk away, Avalon figures what the hell! Avalon tears off his shirt, fires up and runs in, but into a choke grip! Morrissey holds Avalon way over head, tells someone, or maybe everyone, that he’s watching them, then hits a GIGANTIC CHOKE SLAM!! Stokely finally steps into the ring, and he hands Morrissey his card. Is this stable Stokely is building just gotten that much bigger?

Tony Schiavone stops them at the ramp to ask Stokely what all these offers are about. What is Stokely planning with these wrestlers he’s recruiting? Stokely says it’s none of our business. Now, hold on! This is AEW, so it IS our business! Stokely grabs Tony’s collar and gets in Tony’s face as he shouts, “I said it’s none of your business!!” Tony pushes Stokely back, but Morrissey steps up. Tony has them settle down but Chicago is on Tony’s side. But the question is valid: Just what is Stokely planning? How far is he going to expand his brand?

 

Backstage interview with The United Empire.

Alex Marvez is in the locker room area and notes that later tonight, our main event will be the “Dynamite Finals” of the AEW World Trios Championships Tournament, with Will Ospreay & The United Empire facing The Elite. Ospreay says finally, after all these years, after the Cease & Desists and the constant undermining, Ospreay gets Omega. But then Don Callis walks in. Callis tells “William” it’s been a long time since Japan. Great to see Ospreay lighting it up there. Callis admires everything Ospreay does, and his performance last week on Dynamite was “absolutely fantastic.”

Callis says a lot of people feel Ospreay is the “Next Kenny Omega.” But that’s not the case. Callis says Ospreay is his own man. This is Will BAH GAWD Ospreay! He’s the man everyone’s talking about. And tonight, this will be the most exciting match for Callis since the last time we saw Omega and Ospreay in a tag match against each other. Ospreay took a One Winged Angel that night, but surely this will be different. Callis pats Ospreay on the shoulder, but Ospreay tells Callis to go. Right, of course, they’ve got to get ready for the match. Marvez, you heard him, get outta here. Callis leaves, and Ospreay does agree there, he has Marvez leave.

It seems the IWGP US Heavyweight Champion didn’t appreciate two-faced Callis heaping on the praise there. Will Will Ospreay make Callis actually mean it the next time he says Ospreay’s absolutely fantastic?

 

Toni Storm & Hikaru Shida VS Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter w/ Rebel!

Thunder Rosa’s injury prevents her from defending the title at All Out, so these four women will fight in a Fatal 4 Way to crown an Interim AEW Women’s World Champion! Will there be dysfunction in either of the teams? Or will The Doctor and her assistant be united in gaining momentum for the title match?

The teams sort out and Shida wants after Britt, but Hayter pie faces her and says she’s Shida’s opponent! So Shida ROCKS Hayter! Hayter kicks low, headlocks, but Shida powers out. Hayter runs Shida over but Shida kips up! Fans fire up, Hayter runs and runs Shida over again! Hayter drags Shida up to scoop, but Shida slips off and dodges the haymaker to redirect Hayter and RANA! OW, that faceplant! The ref checks Hayter but Shida tags Storm. Hayter is somehow okay so Storm stands her up for a EuroUpper! Storm stomps a mudhole into Hayter in the corner, tags Shida back in, and Shida climbs up. Storm holds Hayter in place for the AX HANDLES!

Shida stalks Hayter, brings her back around and tags Storm back in. Storm climbs now and she drops AX HANDLES! Storm drags Hayter up but Hayter JAWBREAKERS her away! Hayter hurries and tags Britt! Britt runs in but into a drop toehold! Storm drags Britt and whips her to the corner. Storm UPPERCUTS Britt, sweeps the legs, then backs up, only for Hayter to be there! Storm BOOTS Hayter for sneaking up on her, but Britt waistlocks Storm! Britt wristlocks and ripcords, but Storm ROCKS Britt first! Britt wobbles, Storm ROCKS her again, then Storm whips. Britt reverses and Hayter trips Storm up!

Hayter hammers Storm’s legs and Britt hurries to grab at Storm’s head but the ref has them back off. Britt stomps Storm instead, the ref reprimands her and Hayter, who is still hammering the thighs, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Hayter and Britt finally let off, and Britt drags Storm up to talk trash. Britt puts Storm in the corner, stomps away, then goes outside to drag Storm deeper into the corner. Britt pulls on Storm’s arms to pull her into the post! Hayter taunts Shida, the ref counts, and Britt lets off. Britt gets in the ring, drags Storm up, and keeps her from Shida by pulling hair! Tag to Hayter, Hayter CLUBS Storm down, then bumps Storm off buckles. Hayter bumps Storm off buckles again, then soaks up the heat. Hayter CLUBS Storm, keeps her from Shida again, and stomps away. Storm snap suplexes Storm, covers, TWO!

Hayter puts Storm back in the corner, tags Britt in, and then Hayter DECKS Shida with a sucker punch! Britt CHOKES Storm and the ref reprimands them both. Britt lets off, argues with the ref, and Hayter CHOKES Storm now! Hayter lets off in time, then Britt digs her boots in. The ref counts, Britt lets off, and Britt brings Storm up to ROCK her. Storm hits back, Britt ROCKS and whips Storm to a corner. Britt runs corner to corner, into a back elbow! Storm goes up the corner but Britt ROCKS Her again! Britt climbs up after Storm, but Storm CLUBS away on her! Storm and Britt fight for control as Dynamite returns to single picture.

Storm ROCKS Britt and she hops off the corner, then Storm reels her in! TORNADO DDT! Britt hurries to tag Hayter, and Hayter drags Storm from Shida. Storm BOOTS Hayter away, then hot tags Shida! The Full Metal Samurai blocks a shot, ROCKS Hayter, then goes up the corner to rain down fists! The fans count all the way to 10, and Shida fires up to DROPKICK Hayter! Shida brings Hayter in to suplex, hold on, and SLAM her down! Fans fire up with Shida as she goes to the apron. Shida climbs up the ropes, and springboards to METEORA! Cover, Britt breaks it in time! Storm gets in and she SHOTGUNS Britt down!

Shida drags Hayter up and she coordinates with Storm. Hayter holds off the double suplex to DOUBLE SUPLEX them! Tag to Britt and she hurries to drag Shida up. Britt fisherman’s for the FISHERMAN SCREW! Cover, TWO! Britt keeps on Shida with a wristlock, ripcords, but Shida turns that into a roll-up! TWO!! Britt escapes, SUPERKICKS Shida, and Rebel fires up! Fans duel as Britt snarls and runs. Shida avoids the stomp to waistlock! Britt switches, ripcords again, ROLLING ELBOW! Shida wobbles and Britt gets her glove! But Shida gets up to go up the corner! VENUS SHOOT!! Fans fire up while both women are down!

Shida bails out of the ring, she sees Hayter reaching out, so Shida trips Hayter off the apron! Storm runs in to SWEET HIP MUSIC!! Storm then gets Hayter with a TORNADO DDT to the floor! Shida gets back in the ring, aims at Britt, KATANA KICK!! Cover, Shida & Storm win!

Winners: Toni Storm & Hikaru Shida, by pinfall

The #FullMetalStorm conquers the Doctor and her assistant! They shake hands, because they know that it will be every woman for herself on Sunday. Will Shida go All Out to become a double champion? Will it finally be #ToniTime in AEW? Or will we see a TWO-TIME AEW Women’s World Champion in Dr. Britt Baker, DMD?

 

AEW hears from Kip Sabian and PAC.

“I’m a stickler for the details, but even the most meticulously thought out master plan can’t prepare for the perfect opportunity to just fall at your feet.” The Bastard fell for the simplest of ruses in that decoy box head. Kip can read him like a book! But the All-Atlantic Champion says, “Underrated, underappreciated, over it? I get it, Kip. After what you did, Kip, you have pestered me and badgered me, you want a shot at the All-Atlantic Championship.” Kip says that title is the perfect detour. And Sunday, Pac will be the first to “embrace the change.” Will Mr. Superbad have the perfectly planned return to action by making Pac the first former All-Atlantic Champion?

 

Miro speaks.

“Malakai Black, all I wanted to do last week was redeem you. But you attacked me, and you put your hands on the Redeemer! Darby, Sting, the last one who tried to help me ended up shaking so hard in Heaven, he shook three hands in hell. My God was so scared that he made a deal with the devil to take me out. How is that working out for you, you coward?! You think your mist can match my power?”

But then Darby Allin steps in! “Malakai, I think you’re very intimidated with what Brody King has been able to accomplish without you. Think about it! You were nowhere around when he choked me out and won the Royal Rampage. You were nowhere around when he beat me in the middle of the ring on Dynamite. Malakai, you need Buddy and Brody, they don’t need you. And the sooner they realize that, the faster your House is gonna burn down. Sting walks in, and says, “The enemy of the enemy is a friend! Showtime begins now!”

Miro says this Sunday, he will wreck the fools and Pagans, and they will all find out his power. They will come in wearing masks to hide their fear, only to leave with ones that deliver oxygen. For this is the word of the Redeemer! Will the #RelentlessIcons help Miro lay waste to the House of Black once and for all?

 

CM Punk is here!

Chicago fires up for their hometown hero as he walks out to the ring. However, Punk doesn’t look as excited, though that has a lot to do with how he lost the AEW World Championship last week in Moxley’s territory. Punk gets in the ring, gets the mic and already looks emotional as fans chant his name. “June 1st, I broke my foot. And that would’ve been bad enough, but then I wrestled an entire match on it, and to quote my surgeon, he says I pulverized the bones in my foot. So okay. Accidents happen. On June 8th, I got surgery for my shattered foot. I got three plates and sixteen screws put into my foot.

“Which real quick, is sixteen more times than this fat guy’s ever gotten screwed in his life.” WHOA~! But that’s what you get for heckling. Fans cheer Punk for that one, and Punk continues. “I probably shouldn’t have said that. But I probably shouldn’t have done a lot of things in my career. And apparently one of them was coming back too early from a very serious injury. And last week, I got beat up in Cleveland, and I had to drive home with just my thoughts. It’s okay, Chicago, it’s not the first time I’ve been beat up in Cleveland. But something about this time just didn’t sit well with me. Is my foot 100%? To be completely honest with you, yes.

“Last week, I was cleared by doctors, the x-rays look good. But the problem is, it’s a new 100%. And I don’t know if that 100% is good enough.” Fans don’t like the sound of where this is going, but Punk says he came back to pro-wrestling a year ago because he loves the business. And he knows the business doesn’t always love you back, but he came back because he loves the fans. Fans cheer that, and Punk says they do love him back. That’s why it hurts to feel like he let them down. “I wasn’t able to walk Larry for two months, and it hurt because I let him down so I could rush back to perform in front of all of you.”

Punk looks and sees his little sister in the front row, he feels like he let her down. “Maybe that love just…” Punk has to take a moment, and then continues. “Maybe that love just isn’t enough anymore.” But then Ace Steel marches out to the ring! He gets Punk’s attention and asks, “What is this?” Ace gets in the ring with Punk and asks what Punk is saying. This isn’t what they talked about when they agreed he’d come out here. Ace isn’t sure what happened between there and here, but this isn’t Punk. Ace apologizes for interrupting, but he trained Punk, and has been his coach since day one! Since the first day Punk walked into the Steel Domain, Punk has been fighting from underneath.

Punk has fought through everything to get to where he is! Ace has a career he is proud of, but he is most proud of Punk’s career, because Ace was there to coach him. Ace was coaching Punk from day one to do all this. They’re not just friends, they’ve seen those come and go. These two are family. And you don’t let family down! He didn’t let Chicago down! He filled an arena on a rumor that after seven years, he’d come back. And Ace isn’t letting Punk leave now. Punk fought his heart out in Cleveland, but he lost. So what? In Punk’s own words, “Life isn’t about how many times you get knocked down, it’s how many times you get up.” And then Ace SLAPS Punk!

Ace tells Punk to get the F up and fight!! Fight Sunday! Sign the open contract! Chicago is all fired up as Ace tells Punk to sign the contract and fight Moxley! Ace shoves the contract into Punk’s hand and a pen into the other. Ace then tells Punk, “If you forgot who you are, tell him, Chicago!” Fans chant for “CM PUNK! CM PUNK!” Ace tells Punk to sign the contract! Punk unzips his jacket, hugs Ace, and says, “Before I was ever CM Punk, I was just a punk rock kid from Chicago! I was borne lonely at Christ Hospital, blue in the face, with the cord wrapped around my neck, because they’ve been trying to kill me since the day I was born!”

Punk says they ain’t found the man who’s man enough to do it yet! “And Jon Moxley, you ain’t him!” Fans are even more fired up and Punk gets in the crowd! He tells Moxley that he may be wild, but he ain’t wild enough! “This is Chicago, where the weak are killed and eaten!” Punk goes up the bleachers and across one of the rows to say Chicago has different kids, but they have the same heartbeat! One pulse running through the streets which are their arteries, and Punk will pump the blood until it stops pumping! “Jon Moxley, at All Out, you can’t break my bones! You can’t drink my blood! Because I, WE, ARE CHICAGO!”

Punk has someone hold the mic, and he finds his part in the contract! Punk signs on the dotted line, and it is official! Will Punk prove that he IS the Best in the World? Or will Moxley make sure he is still undisputed?

 

AEW shares Jim Ross’ interview with Christian Cage and Jungle Boy.

Good ol’ JR sits with Captain Charisma and Jungle Jack Perry, on one condition: No physicality. JR isn’t even sure how to approach this situation, but he knows that with no physicality, Christian’s elbow won’t get any worse, and AEW appreciates Christian taking the time to share hits thoughts about this coming match. Of course you appreciate it, JR. You signed Christian to his very first contract in the business, so JR knows Christian is professional to a T. And Christian agreed to no physicality because that’s not an issue for him.

On Sunday, Jack has to step into the ring, be face-to-face with Christian, and realize he’s not in Christian’s league. And even when he’s less than 100%, Christian will destroy JB. JB will be a has-been at just 25 years old. Christian hopes JB is prepared to live for the rest of his life with that. JB say as much as he’d like to sit here and stare at Christian’s stupid, smug face and tell him he hates him, it’s a bit more complicated than that. JB has cared about Christian a lot. Their friendship felt very familiar to JB in a lot of ways. JB loved Christian. Whether or not Christian really cared about JB, he made it feel like he loved JB back.

As much as JB would like to believe “the real” Christian is in there somewhere, this was probably the real him all along. Christian says yeah, this is the real him. He isn’t here to be JB’s friend. He isn’t here to be a father or father figure. JB won’t let Christian talk about his father but Christian says he is just here to make money and win championships. Christian is in AEW for Christian. JB tells Christian about his father, the late Luke Perry. JB’s father taught him what it means to be a man. That is a lesson JB will teach Christian! This Sunday, Christian isn’t wrestling “Jungle Boy.” This Sunday, he FIGHTS Jack Perry!!

 

Six Man Tag: FTR & Wardlow VS Silas Young, Ray Jones & Vic Capri!

So much gold on the trio formerly known as The Pinnacle! The IWGP, AAA & ROH World Tag Team Champions and the AEW TNT Champion know that at All Out, they’re facing Jay Lethal, one of the greatest ROH World Heavyweight Champions, and the Motor City Machine Guns, one of the greatest tag teams period. Will this tune-up be an exclamation point before writing the conclusion to their story with Lethal this Sunday?

Sonjay Dutt is watching this backstage and taking notes with that pencil of his. The trios sort out and Wardlow starts against Ray Jones. Fans rally as the two step up to each other. Ray says he isn’t scared, and he pokes Wardlow in the shoulder. Wardlow HEADBUTTS Ray then keeps him standing up. Wardlow aims the finger gun, BANG and the wind-up, BIG LARIAT! Ray flounders but Wardlow drags him away. Tag to Cash, he drags Ray up and whips him to ropes to CLOBBER him! Cash drags Ray up to snap suplex! Tag to Dax, he drags Ray up to bump off buckles. Dax CHOPS Ray, then CHOPS again!

Ray ROCKS Dax back with a right, and he drags Dax over to tag in “Ice Pick” Vic and the two mug Dax. Vic whips, Dax reverses and wrenches to short arm LARIAT! Dax drags Vic up, tags Cash, and then Cash tags Wardlow. FTR whips Vic for the BIG RIG, and then they wipe out Silas & Ray! Wardlow drags Vic up, reels him in, and gives him the POWERBOMB! Fans chant “ONE MORE TIME!” and Wardlow conducts them. Wardlow drags Vic up, reels him back in, brings the straps down, and FTR helps give Vic a TRIPLE POWERBOMB! Cover, the Pinnacle wins!

Winners: FTR & Wardlow, by pinfall

Sonjay finishes taking notes, but will any of that help his guys on Sunday? Or will nothing stop this gold-stacked team from crushing Lethal & the MCMG?

 

Jon Moxley returns!

He heads back to the ring and gets himself a mic because he clearly wants to respond to what we saw earlier! “If that’s what your boy wants, that’s exactly what he’s gonna get. If CM Punk wants to go out on his shield here in Chicago in front of his hometown fans who made him what he is today… Well, Chicago, I guess he does owe you that much. So it will be CM Punk VS Jon Moxley one more time, this Sunday at All Out for the AEW World Championship! And CM Punk, if you think you’ve got one more miracle left in you, you better find it fast. Because the moment that bell rings, you are in danger! I’ll be trying to take your damn head off!”

Moxley says he’s gonna put on a display, a show, of glorious brutality and pro-wrestling violence that CM Punk has never experienced! And he will show the world the difference between a fake messiah, a martyr, and the real thing! A real champion! A legend being made right before your eyes! Moxley is fired up now! Will Ace Steel and CM Punk regret thinking they can make a comeback at the Maniac’s expense?

 

Backstage interview with The Dark Order.

Tony Schiavone is with Evil Uno & Preston Vance. Because of an injury to Vance’s knee last week on Rampage, he cannot compete in the tournament match set for this Friday. Uno says it was to be Dark Order VS Best Friends, and though Vance’s knee is not up to par, The Dark Order always has a plan! Uno will step in for Vance and- Andrade El Idolo walks in! Vance stands up but Andrade has him and Uno calm down. Andrade is sorry to hear about the knee. Andrade says The Dark Order used to have power. What happened to them? Do they need money? Jose hands Uno a fat stack of $100 bills! Well, thank you for that.

Andrade says he was thinking about giving The Dark Order a contract to work for him. Vance has the body, but maybe he could take the mask off- Uno stops Andrade there. Maybe Andrade doesn’t understand this, but Uno & Vance are Dark Order Forever. Take your money, and your cheap cologne, and get out of here. Uno puts the money in Andrade’s shirt pocket, and Andrade DECKS Uno! Andrade sucker punches Vance, takes one of the crutches, and he SMACKS Uno with it! And again! Jose has Vance stand down by threatening him with a stun gun! Andrade and Jose leave, but where does this leave The Dark Order for Rampage?

YUTA WINS!!

Winner: Wheeler Yuta, by pinfall

The ROH Pure Champion secures a win with that signature cover! But now, add El Idolo, Penta El Zero M, Claudio GADDAM Castagnoli and the Joker, and that’s a wild match right there! Who comes out as the next #1 contender to the AEW World Championship when eight top stars go All Out?

 

Backstage interview with John Silver & Alex Reynolds.

Tony Schiavone knows they saw what happened to Uno & Vance, that takes out their two possible partners for Rampage! What’re they going to do? Reynolds says this Trios Tournament is the biggest opportunity the Dark Order has had in a long time. And if that means they have to go 3v2, then so be it. Silver says it’s not a big deal- Wait! Hangman Page walks in! He wanted this tournament to be their moment, but if Ten and Uno can’t do it, then they can count on him. Alright! Silver isn’t a booker or anything, but they’ll go get this figured out! This is awesome! Then Hangman Page is joining the tournament this Friday on Rampage! Will the Good, the Bad & The Hungy ride into the sunset once again?

 

AEW announces matches for All Out’s Zero Hour!

AEW World Trios Championships Tournament Semifinals: The Elite VS The United Empire!

Speaking of All Out being a big deal, this tournament just keeps giving us incredible match-ups as The Cleaner, Kenny Omega, and the Young Bucks take on the Commonwealth Kingpin and Aussie Open! Everyone in this main event knows what it is to hold gold, but will the United Empire look to plant their flag in AEW? Or will The! Elite! The, the Elite return to prominence together?

“And now… He has a 1-0 record against Will Ospreay in their only singles match. He has a 3-0 trios record teaming with the Young Bucks VS Will Ospreay.

He was victorious in his comeback match on Dynamite, which did not take place in NOOORTH~ CAROLINA! He is… KENNY! OOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEEEEEGAAAA~!”

Chicago goes wild as Omega, with Callis and Michael Nakazawa behind him, makes his way out on stage. The pyro goes off and then Omega joins the Bucks in the ring. Callis of course joins commentary while the trios sort out, and Omega insists he start. The Bucks stand down and Ospreay BOOTS Omega at the bell! Ospreay headlocks, Omega powers out, but Ospreay RAMS shoulders. Omega stays up, fans fire up and Omega pie faces Ospreay. Ospreay gets in Omega’s face, fans are going nuts, and Omega kicks low.

Winners: The Elite, by pinfall (advance to the finals at All Out)

A match worthy of the main event! A main event worthy of the AEW World Trios Championship Tournament! And a victory worthy of going to the finals at All Out! Will Omega & The Young Bucks prove they are worthy of being the inaugural champions? Who proves themselves worthy to be their opponents this Friday on Rampage?


My Thoughts:

What a great episode of AEW, especially for a go-home. It did start to feel a little talky in the middle, but AEW has been feeling a bit more talky lately. It’s still been good stuff, there’s just been a lot of it. Moxley had a great promo to open the show, but I just knew that even with it being an “open challenge,” it was going to be Punk answering it. Punk also had a great promo that really got the fans hyped up, but with it playing out this way, it just felt rather melodramatic to me. We will still get the awesome match we expected to see in Cleveland, but this was a very interesting route to take to get there.

Similarly, I had a feeling Hangman Page would somehow end up the third partner for Silver & Reynolds. Andrade whooping Uno after Vance was ruled out by his injury was a surprising way to get there, but maybe we also get a Dark Order VS LFI/AFO feud after All Out. And after just an amazing main event between The Elite and The United Empire, I am pretty sure we get Elite VS Dark Order & Hangman. It will be an awesome match that will reference all the story between Hangman and his old friends, and it will truly make that match hard to call. But news just came out that Bobby Fish’s AEW contract won’t be renewed, so I have a feeling we won’t get Undisputed VS Elite after all.

We got great stuff out of Bryan Danielson, Daniel Garcia and the rest of Jericho Appreciation Society. Bryan VS Hager was a great match and of course Bryan wins for momentum going into All Out. Garcia expects Jericho to be better than he is and that comes back to bite him when the rest of JAS attacks Bryan. Garcia costs Jericho here, so will he cost Bryan at All Out? I thought Garcia was joining BCC but it’s harder to tell what’s going to happen here. We also got a great return to AEW for W. Morrissey where he wipes out The Wingmen and then joins Stokely. And it was good that someone asked what Stokely’s planning. He’s either breaking away from The Baddies, or he’s creating a faction that is actually booked strong in both men’s and women’s divisions.

We got a great interview promo from Christian and JB, and of course AEW uses “No Physicality Agreement” here. Both men delivered their parts perfectly, and that is an even bigger deal for JB. JB is coming into his own through this feud, and win or lose, Jungle Boy will be a certified contender for a singles title going into the Fall. We got a good promo vignette from Pac and Kip to set up their title match, and a great promo from Miro, Darby & Sting to set up a Six Man Tag with House of Black. I have a feeling Pac retains, but anything can happen in #RelentlessRedeemers VS House of Black that then helps set up an eventual Miro VS Malakai 1v1 match.

FTR & Wardlow crush their opponents, and Silas didn’t even get to be part of the match. I again say that this is to set up FTR VS MCMG for the ROH tag titles, so there’s a good chance the team of #LethalMachineGuns finds a way to win. We got a great tag match from Storm & Shida VS Britt & Hayter, and the Faces win so there is half a chance Britt and Hayter conspire so that one of them (Britt) wins in the end. I’d like for Storm to win to vindicate her after how she was treated on main roster WWE and how things have been a little rocky in AEW, but Britt is a worthy Heel to become a two-time champion and taunt Toni in the chase, so it’s between those two to me.

And we got an awesome Fatal 4 Way to hype up the Casino Ladder Match. It is a bit strange that we’re getting two members each from three factions (Claudio & Yuta of BCC; the Lucha Bros of Death Triangle; and Andrade & Rush of LFI), and then it’s literally the Joker as the one person who isn’t attached to anyone. It was awesome to see Yuta get the win here tonight but he is the ROH Pure Champion, so don’t expect him to become a contender. Same for Claudio being ROH World Champion. And there’s still plenty of beef between Lucha Bros and LFI that those four could cancel out. The Joker usually isn’t the winner of these “casino” matches but this could be the time. Could it be… MJF?!

My Score: 8.8/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO! NO!” Tommy is conflicted. But he takes the handshake?! Callis smiles and asks for an official answer. Tommy looks him in the eyes, and says, “Kiss my ass!” Callis is furious! He SLAPS Tommy! Takeshita says hold on, they can still make this work. But then Tommy grabs Callis!

They stand Tommy up so Callis can swing on Tommy! WAIT! FTR is here!? Calgary fires up as Cash & Dax storm out here! The Top Guys throw hands with Fletcher & Takeshita! The fans fire up for FTR as Dax CHOPS Takeshita down! Cash CLUBS away on Kyle, Kyle flops out of the ring, and Callis has his family regroup and retreat! Dax offers a hand, and Tommy takes it. The fans cheer as FTR and Tommy stand tall together. Will they make the Callis Family learn a thing about respect?

 

Six Man Tag: The Bang Bang Gang VS London Lightning, Shaun Moore & Michael Allen Richard Clark!

Juice Robinson & The Gunns are here, and these #CollisionCowboys are looking to keep up their momentum as AEW heads for Wembley. Will the Unified World Trios Champions be more than ready to go All In?

The trios sort out and the fans rally for “JUICE! JUICE! JUICE!” as he starts against Moore. Juice gives Moore a free shot, so Moore headlocks him. Juice powers up and out, tags Colten, and then Colten tags Austin. Bang Bang Gang hit a body shot, KNEE LIFT, and LARIAT! Juice adds a SENTON, then Colten SPINNING SPLASHES!

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?

 

AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”

 

Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?

Cassidy BOOTS Taven, hurdles over Bennett, but Taven throws Cassidy back. Casisdy dodges Taven’s splash, hurries over, but Bennett anchors a leg! Cassidy fights, BOOTS Bennett away, but now Taven anchors Cassidy! Cassidy BOOTS Taven now! Taven holds on! Cassidy fights up and up and reaches out, hot tag to Kyle!

The fans fire up as Taven has no choice but to face Kyle. Bennett storms in but Kyle DECKS him! BOOT for Taven! ROUNDHOUSE for Bennett! Kyle fires off a strike fest on Taven, then a LEG SWEEP! Kyle whips Bennett, Bennett reverses but Kyle goes up and over. Taven swings, misses, and The Kingdom almost run into each other! Kyle storms up, blocks Taven’s kick, and he hands it to Bennett. Kyle then gets a leg, to DRAGON SCREW CHAIN The Kingdom! The fans fire up with Kyle, and he runs in to SMASH Bennett! Kyle wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! Bennett ROCKS Kyle, reel shim in, but Kyle back drops and drops down, ARMBAR!

Bennett endures, Taven stomps, but Kyle grabs that leg! Grapevine and KNEEBAR!! Taven flails, Bennett stomps Kyle. Bennett drags Kyle up, reels him in, but Kyle slips free of the bomb to GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! Bennett endures, Taven hits the KICK OF THE KING!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10
