Interim AEW World Championship Eliminator: Jon Moxley VS Mance Warner!

What an unlikely match-up here tonight! The Maniac is preparing for “Lionheart” Chris Jericho this Wednesday, but he’ll gladly fight anyone who wants to fight him! Will Moxley deny Warner a golden ticket to this title? Or will the “Southern Psycho” go from bunkhouse to penthouse in one night?

Knowing Warner wants a fight, Moxley goes after him at the ramp! They brawl, Moxley ROCKS Warner, then RAMS him into railing! Moxley finally takes off his shirt but Warner goes right after him! Warner CHOPS Moxley, stalks him around the way, and RAMS him into railing! Fans fire up but the ref wants this in the ring! Warner BITES Moxley’s head, punches him, then puts him in the ring. The bell rings and Moxley bails out, but Warner follows! Warner CLUBS Moxley, Moxley kicks back and whips Warner into the corner of the railing! Moxley moves the chair aside, drags Warner up, and snap suplexes him onto the chair!

The ring count climbs, Moxley stands Warner up but Warner CHOPS! Moxley CHOPS, Warner CHOPS, it’s a CHOP fight! Moxley rakes eyes, then headlocks, only for Warner to crotch Moxley on railing! Warner then LARIATS Moxley down! Fans fire up as Moxley hobbles up and into the ring. Warner pursues, rains down fists on Moxley, and he KNEES Moxley in the back! Warner throws down hands, has Moxley in a corner, and he CHOPS him! Fans “WOO~” and Warner CHOPS Moxley again! Moxley goes to the far side, Warner storms after him and CHOPS again! Moxley gets in Warner’s face and fans fire up!

Warner pushes Moxley to a corner but Moxley dodges the chop to CHOP and CHOP and CHOP! Moxley keeps Warner in the corner, puts the leg in ropes, and runs to SHOTGUN the leg! Warner grimaces, but Moxley hits a DRAGON SCREW! Moxley steps through to the FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK! Fans rally as Warner endures and reaches out. Warner pokes Moxley in the eye! He is the Eye Poke God, so there it is! Warner stalks Moxley to the corner, HEADBUTTS him, throws right hand after right hand, but Moxley eggs him on! Then Moxley gives those right hands right back! The ref reprimands, Moxley DECKS Warner!

Moxley whips corner to corner, Warner reverses and Moxley hits buckles hard! Warner hurries to basement BOOT! Fans rally, Moxley gets out of the ring, and Warner goes out after him. Warner whips Moxley hard into steel steps! Fans fire up as the steps go sliding! Warner drags Moxley up and whips him into railing! Then Warner HEADBUTTS Moxley, moves the chair aside, and snap suplexes Moxley onto the chair! Payback for earlier! The ring count is 5 of 10, Moxley gets in at 6! Warner pursues, punches Moxley’s legs, then steps through. Moxley kicks Warner away, throws knees on him, then KNEES him down!

Fans fire up as Moxley goes out and brings Warner around the way. Moxley digs into Warner’s face, then brings him to the steps! Moxley drags Warner up the steps, reels him in, but Warner throws body shots! Warner turns things around, DDT to the steel steps! Fans fire up while both men are down and AEW goes picture in picture!

Warner writhes, that was double-edged for him. But he gets his arms moving, drags himself off the steps, and gets himself in the ring. Warner waits on Moxley as he stands up and staggers around. Moxley goes the wrong way, flops to the floor, and the count is 7! Moxley springs up and in at 9! For Warner to BOOT him down! Warner drags Moxley around, ties his legs up and puts the FIGURE FOUR on Moxley! Moxley sit sup to glare at Warner, Warner JABS him down! Moxley sits back up, Warner JABS him again! But Moxley sits up again, and fires off hands on Warner! Both men are down, Moxley hurries to get loose!

Rampage returns to single picture, fans rally, but Warner CHOP BLOCKS Moxley! Moxley clutches his leg but Warner CLUBS him on the back. Warner stomps the leg, and again, and again! Moxley sits up but Warner drops a knee! Warner DECKS Moxley then covers, TWO! Warner drags Moxley up but Moxley CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Moxley runs, but into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Warner hurries to cover again, TWO! And again, TWO! Warner rains down fists but Moxley just eggs him on! And flips him off! Fans fire up and Warner BOOTS Moxley down! Cover, TWO!

Warner paces but Moxley seems to be smiling! Moxley is loving this fight, but Warner starts looking under the ring. Warner brings out chairs! Fans fire up as Warner gets the chairs in the ring, but Moxley CLOBBERS him through the chair! That’s double-edged for Moxley’s forearm! Fans are thunderous, “We Want Tables!” but Warner is busted open! Moxley hurries to build speed and DIVES! Warner is sent into railing but Moxley puts Warner in the ring! Warner sputters, Moxley runs in to clothesline at the corner! Moxley puts Warner up top, climbs up after him, and drags Warner up to SUPERPLEX!

But Moxley doesn’t cover, he rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Warner catches one! But then Moxley BITES Warner’s wound! Moxley runs, Warner follows, but right into a KNEE! Warner wobbles but he still LARIATS back! Both men are down and a standing count begins. Moxley sits up first at 4 to cover, TWO!! DOUBLE WRISTLOCK! Moxley twists the arm but Warner endures, so Moxley gives him DRAGON STOMPS! And then reels him in for the PIELDRIVER! And more DRAGON STOMPS! And then the SLEEPER!! Warner endures, until Moxley drags him up! Warner is OUT, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (DENIES Warner a title match)

The Ohio Maniac just showed the Southern Psycho why you don’t wanna fight him. Step up or get stepped on! Will Moxley make sure Jericho understands that explicitly at Quake by the Lake?

 

AEW shares Lexi Nair’s interview with Ricky Starks.

She knows his emotions are running high after the betrayal by Will Hobbs, but he has her hold on. Because the Factory’s there waiting for him. Aaron Solo, Anthony Ogogo, Nick Comoroto, new recruit Cole Karter, and of course QT Marshall. QT tells Ricky that this is two weeks in a row that Hobbs absolutely laid him out. And normally, this type of protection QT is offering would cost a lot of money, but hey, for Starks? It’ll be o the house. On the house, huh? Where’d they get this fool from? Starks of course means Comoroto in his blue velvet tracksuit. Solo says this is classic Ricky. He cracks jokes, makes things about himself, just like when he and Solo were a team.

Solo knows Starks better than anyone, so he doesn’t blame Hobbs for doing what he did. But as an old friend, take the help. Oh, take the hep? Starks doesn’t need anyone’s help! So QT can kiss his ass! QT has his boys stand down, they’ll get Starks soon enough. Will Starks not need help against the Powerhouse coming for him?

 

Konosuke Takeshita VS Ryan Nemeth w/ Peter Avalon!

The Future of DDT has an ROH World Championship match in his near future, but his immediate future is the Hollywood Hunk. Will Konosuke use Nemeth as a tune-up for the Swiss Cyborg? Or will Nemeth show that he should be considered the future of wrestling?

Nemeth eggs Konosuke on during his entrance, so Konosuke runs and slides into the ring, dodges Nemeth as the bell rings, and ROCKS him with forearms! Konosuke whips, Nemeth reverses but Konosuke ducks ‘n’ dodges to FLYING FOREARM! Fans fire up with Konosuke and he runs in at Nemeth for a BOOT! Konosuke then drags Nemeth up, climbs up, and rains down fists! Fans count all the way to 10, and then Konosuke lets Nemeth drop. Konosuke prepares his elbow pad, builds speed, but Nemeth distracts the ref so that Avalon can trip Konosuke up! Konosuke glares but Nemeth CLOBBERS Konosuke!

Nemeth half nelsons to throw knee after knee! Konosuke drops and Nemeth swivels the hips, then thrusts them! Nemeth drags Konosuke up, turns him, swivels a bit more, but Konosuke powers out to scoop, BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Fans fire up as Konosuke aims from the corner! Nemeth staggers up, into the V-TRIGGER!! A shout out to his mentor, Kenny Omega! Cover, Konosuke wins!

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

But then Avalon attacks! Avalon clubs away on Konosuke, but Konosuke gets up, dodges, JUMP KNEE!! Konosuke is standing tall and feeling good, but will he be able to take the ROH title from Claudio Gaddam Castagnoli?

 

AEW shares Lexi Nair’s interview with Best Friends.

A tough loss for Orange Cassidy against Jay Lethal, we now check in on him in the medical room. She says Lethal did a number on Cassidy’s leg, what is the status of the injury? Chuck says they tried to break the leg, so that’s an update. And Lethal’s guys have been trying to destroy Chuck’s boys, and they’re not doing great. Cassidy is out of the top five in singles, Best Friends are out of the top five in tag, so something needs to change. Trent says Best Friends need to stick together. They’re at their best when they’re together. Maybe even as a trio! The new titles are coming! Everyone, hands in! Trios on three! Wait! “Doctor” Danhausen joins in, too! Oh, wow. But one way or another, will Best Friends be golden in this coming Trios Tournament?

 

Madison Rayne VS Leila Grey w/ Stokely Hathaway!

The new Supervising Coach of the AEW Women’s Division is also the newest member of the AEW Women’s Division! Not that The Baddies liked hear about that. Jade Cargill got in Madison’s face on Elevation, but will the Provisional Baddie do the dirty work? Or will Madison have an impact in AEW?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally up for Rayne, she and Grey tie up. They are in a deadlock, but Rayne finds a point of leverage and pushes Grey back. Grey turns that around to put Rayne in the corner, and the ref counts. Grey lets off at 4, but hits Rayne with a cheap shot! Rayne shakes her head and storms up on Grey, but Grey uses the ropes as a defense! Rayne backs off, Grey gets out of the ropes, and the two circle again. They tie up, Rayne waistlocks, but Grey switches. Rayne switches, Grey switches again, repeat! They keep switching, Rayne smirks, but Grey elbows out then ROCKS Rayne with a forearm!

Grey whips but Rayne uses that to arm-drag and cover, TWO! Rayne trips Grey, jackknifes, TWO! Grey hurries up but Rayne gets around to backslide, TWO! Rayne arm-drags and clamps on with a cording hold. Fans rally up but Grey fights up. Grey thrashes but Rayne holds on tight! Grey reaches out but Rayne arm-drags her from the ropes! Grey still fights up, pulls hair, and she puts Rayne in the corner. The ref counts, Grey lets off, but she kicks low now! Grey whips Rayne corner to corner, runs in but Rayne sips out to the apron! Rayne shoulder sin, but Stokely distracts her with stomps on the steps! Grey BLASTS Rayne off the apron!

Rayne clutches a leg while she’s on the ground, and Stokely cheers Grey as Rampage goes picture in picture. Grey goes out to stomp Rayne, drag her up, and smack her off the apron! Grey then CHOPS Rayne against the apron, then snap suplexes her to the floor! Rayne crawls but Grey CLUBS her down. Grey refreshes the ring count, then KICKS Rayne in the chest! Grey drags Rayne up, UPPERCUTS her, then brings her around, to RAM into railing! Grey and Stokely both taunt Rayne, but Rayne sits up to throw body shots! Grey CLUBS Rayne, Rayne throws more shots. Grey CLUBS Rayne, puts her in the ring, and pushes her to a cover, TWO!

Grey is frustrated with Rayne, but Rayne is a multiple time women’s champion. Grey drags Rayne up, UPPERCUTS her again, and Rayne staggers to a corner. Grey drags Rayne up to cravat and CHOKE her against the ropes! The ref counts, Grey lets off and Rayne sputters to the corner. The ref reprimands Grey but she doesn’t care. She storms up on Rayne, but into a kick! And another kick! Rayne ROCKS Grey, Grey ROCKS Rayne, and Grey snapmares Rayne as AEW goes to break.

Rampage returns as Rayne endures a chinlock. Fans rally, Rayne fights up and throws body shots! Rayne JAWBREAKERS, then ENZIGURIS Grey down! Fans fire up as Rayne throws forearms and CHOPS on repeat! Rayne DECKS Grey, then eggs her on! Grey staggers up, Rayne spins her around for a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO! Grey survives and Rayne sighs. Stokely coaches Grey up, Rayne drags Grey up into a ripcord, but Grey powers out of the stunner! SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO!! Rayne survives again and Grey is losing her cool! Grey drags Rayne up, cravats, but Rayne breaks free to ROCK Grey!

Grey ROCKS Rayne back, Rayne ROCKS Grey! Grey forearms, Rayne fires off a flurry, then shoves, but Grey gets around, FACE- NO, Rayne slips out and SLIDING LARIATS! Rayne drags Grey up, dragon sleeper, CROSS RAYNE! Cover, Rayne wins!

Winner: Madison Rayne, by pinfall

But she doesn’t get to celebrate long, because “A storm is coming.” Jade struts out to say, “Good help is so hard to find these days. I knew I should’ve handled your ass all on my own. Now Maddy, as you know, I’m #ThatBitch, and this? This is MY show! Now as you all know, I am big on charity. And I have an open challenge this Wednesday on Dynamite. So Maddy, I would love to invite you to show up, show out, and get that ass beat!” Madison wants the fight now! But Jade says Rayne should take some days off first. Kiera Hogan gets in from behind! She kicks Rayne, but Rayne turns things back, CROSS RAYNE!

Will Rayne add yet another title to her resume? Or will she just be another number on the undefeated streak?

 

AEW looks at the coming Tornado Tag match!

Rey Fenix tells Andrade and Rush, “FINALLY, it’s time! For you to put up or shut up.” But Rush says, “If they want a fight, then we’ll give them a fight!” Andrade wants Rush to tranquilo. Los Lucha Brothers need to wait until Wednesday. Alex Abrahantes says that if La Faccion Ingobernables really is the best luchadors, then the match needs to be lucha rules! LFI IS the best, second to none! But Penta says #CeroMiedo! Will nothing stop these two teams from tearing it down with their tornado tag?

 

Mark Henry interviews tonight’s main eventers!

The World’s Strongest Men is cut off by “Smart” Mark Sterling already! And Sterling says Swerve must be pretty pleased with himself. Swerve won last week’s Handicap Match, but he pinned the lawyer. Big whoop! Tonight, they have a STREET FIGHT! Anything goes! They still have the Premier Athlete, and now they have “the technical beast,” Josh Woods! A national wrestling champion, a former ROH Pure Champion, and Keith Lee met him last week. Woods helped Keith take a little nap, didn’t he?

Sterling’s guys laugh that up, but Swerve just tells Sterling to shut up. They had to go through all this trouble, all this red tape, petitions and interrupting celebrations, all disrespectful, hence the cake in Sterling’s face. All they had to do was ask, and step up like men. But if they wanna mess around, then the champs can do that, too. Keith says that Sterling claims to be smart, but there is nothing smart in him asking for this Street Fight. And to Woods, “Listen, little man. You stepped to the wrong people, and you’re gonna find out today, when we’re done with you, you’ll be nothing more than a footnote on our journey to a properly ranked tag team.”

Then there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Will Sterling’s #PremierGoods be nothing but trash compared to the Limitless House?

Tag Team Street Fight: Swerve in Our Glory VS Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/ Mark Sterling!

Both teams get out of the ring and split up, the brawl is on! The bell rings and Woods RAMS Swerve into railing! Swerve CLUBS back, but Woods RAMs him into the apron! Keith RAMS Nese into railing! And then CLUBS him down! Nese drew the short straw here but Woods RAMS Swerve into more railing! Keith glare at Woods but he has Nese to TOSS him aside. Now Woods and Keith get face to face, and Woods throws a forearm! Keith grins but Woods throws more shots! Keith GRIZZLY MAGNUMS! Swerve fires forearms on Nese, Nese runs in but Swerve drop toeholds him into a chair!

Keith ROCKS Woods and Woods flounders away. Keith looms over Woods, drags him up, and Swerve joins Keith in mugging Woods against railing! Fans rally up, Woods throws hands but Swerve BOOTS Woods down! Nese returns, to throw PROTEIN POWDER in Keith’s face! Keith sputters after being blinded, but Nese eats up that powder. Swerve KICKS Nese right in the powder! Swerve then brings Nese around and whips him into steel steps! Swerve dusts Keith off, then looks under the ring to bring out a toolbox! Swerve CHUCKS it but Nese narrowly dodges it! The box breaks apart against the steps!

Woods CLOBBERS Swerve from behind! Woods shouts, “Whose house now?!” Keith asks for water to wash out the powder, fans offer some and Keith takes a bottle. Swerve RAMS Woods into steel steps and now Keith can see. Nese is on the apron, he leaps to CLOBBER Keith with part of the toolbox! Swerve brings Woods around to fireman’s carry, but Woods slips off and ROCKS Swerve with a right! And then suplexes to run and SLAM Swerve on the steel steps! “This is Daddy’s house now!” Sterling cheers for his guys as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Woods drags Swerve up, brings him around, and stomps him down. Woods rains down fists and hammering arms on Keith while Nese puts Swerve in the ring. Nese tosses a trash can into the ring, tries with the lid, but that doesn’t make it. Woods catches the lid, though, and Nese puts another can in the ring. Sterling even gets a table! Nese puts a can in one corner, stomps Swerve, but Swerve fires off hands! Nese ROCKS Swerve, then puts him in a corner. Sterling sets up the table, Nese whips Swerve into the trash can! Cover, TWO! Nese argues but he count is the count. Woods drags Swerve up to whip and KNEE against ropes!

Woods then hits n EXPLODER onto the trash can lid! Swerve sputters and flounders, but Nese drags him back up. Nese whips but Swerve stops from being sent outside! Swerve throws hands, BOOTS Nese, then stomps a mudhole in! Woods SMACKS Swerve with the trash can lid! Keith climbs but Sterling anchors him! Woods SMACKS Keith with the lid! Woods drags Swerve to a cover, TWO! Woods is annoyed but Swerve kicks him. Nese and Woods mug Swerve, then Nese scrapes Keith out. Nese drags Swerve over and Woods helps put Swerve on the apron. They mug Swerve, then Nese reels Swerve in.

Nese lifts but Swerve blocks! Woods CLUBS Swerve, but Swerve throws an elbow!  Nese kicks Swerve, stomps Keith, and Woods half nelsons Swerve. Nese soaks up the heat while Woods CLUBS Swerve. Nese stomps Kieth again, then goes back to Swerve. Nese points to the table, but Keith grabs at Nese! Nese stomps Keith, Woods and Swerve brawl, and AEW returns to single picture. Nese throat chops Swerve! Nese reels him in, Woods helps get Swerve up, but Swerve fights for dear life! Swerve throws body shots and ROCKS Nese with a right! Woods CLUBS Swerve but Keith grabs Woods! Woods CLUBS Keith away!

Swerve BOOTS Woods! Keith drags Woods down, Nese runs in but Swerve slingshots to sunset flip! Nese rolls through to SOBAT! Cover, Keith breaks it! Keith whips Nese to run him over! Woods returns, but Keith LARIATS! Fans fire up as Keith SPALSHE Woods in one corner, and SPALSHES Nese in the other! Then Keith TOSSES Nese into Woods! Fans fire up as Keith snarls! Keith storms up on Nese and Woods, stands them up so he can run, but Sterling SMACKS Keith with a chair! Sterling celebrates, but Keith didn’t even budge!! Keith is fuming, and he grabs the chair from Sterling! Sterling panics and apologizes!

Keith tells this is on Sterling! But Nese DROPKICKS the chair into Keith, then Woods BOOTS it into him! Keith is still standing, so they DOUBLE DDT Keith onto the chair! Double cover, but Swerve is up top! 450 SPLASH breaks the pin!! Fans are thunderous as all four men are down! Sterling hurries to get another table! Sterling gets that in the ring while fans chant “This is Awesome!” Nese takes ownership of the table and sets it up. Nese drags Swerve up, but Swerve KICKS Nese down! Swerve aims, Nese sits back up, and fans fire up for the “Whose House?” “Swerve’s house!” But Sterling CLOBBERS swerve with a WRENCH!

Sterling shouts to Woods to get back in, and Woods drags Swerve up. Woods puts Swerve on the table, then goes up top! But Keith drags him down! Keith dumps Woods down, Nese hurries out to leap! Keith dodges, to then HEADBUTT Nese down! Sterling panics, but then takes off his jacket! Sterling goes up top!? Keith grabs Sterling’s foot! Swerve gets off the table, and Keith TOSSES Sterling through the table!! Down goes the foolish lawyer! But Woods waistlocks Keith on the apron! Keith holds on to stop the German Suplex but Woods CLUBS away! Woods tries again but Keith still holds on!

Woods fires off more forearms, tries again, but Nese runs in to SUPERKICK! GERMAN SUPLEX through both tables!!! Woods and Keith are down as fans lose their minds!! Nese hurries to get chairs and put them in the ring! Swerve flounders as Nese has about half a dozen chairs and a trash can lid! Nese drags Swerve up and around, but Swerve fires body shots! Nese KNEES low, but Swerve half nelsons! Swerve turns things but Nese elbows free. Nese runs in, back drop onto the chair pile!! Swerve hurries up top, KILL STOMPS onto the chairs!! Cover, Swerve in Our Glory wins!

Winners: Swerve in Our Glory, by pinfall

The champs got one hell of a fight, but they still won the fight! Will Sterling give up on going after Keith & Swerve? Who will be up next for the AEW World Tag Team Champions?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage as part of this big week AEW has going. Moxley VS Warner was a wild opener, and of course there was blood, and of course Moxley won. Warner did great, he’s definitely got a strong career ahead of him. Moxley has momentum going into his match with Jericho, that title match will be great. And with that promo from Lucha Bros and LFI, Quake by the Lake is going to be great with that tornado tag. Really good backstage interview segments but uh, is QT trying to turn The Factory into a mafia parody? I really do wonder what is up with Comoroto’s outfit. But I feel like Starks is going to have to fight The Factory AND Hobbs on his own at this point. And Best Friends going into the Trios Division makes sense. They’ll help fill out the tournament, but sadly, I don’t see them as a finalist.

Konosuke of course gets a win off Nemeth, a little surprised this wasn’t on that bonus episode of Elevation. Now, is it just me, or was that Madison Rayne VS Leila Grey match really clunky? Is Rayne not as good as her resume suggests? And I’m pretty sure Jade beats Rayne to keep her streak going. I would be really disappointed if AEW was able to sign Rayne by offering her that. But at least we finish strong with that awesome Tag Team Street Fight. I knew Sterling would get involved, but kudos to him for taking that table spot. And naturally, the champions win. Keith & Swerve still have time to find contenders for All Out, I can’t wait to see where they go with this.

My Score: 8.5/10

Jon Moxley is here!

While The Maniac is going to face Konosuke Takeshita in a Title Eliminator regarding his IWGP World Heavyweight Championship, he’s here tonight at the sight of his AEW debut five years ago! That night was Double or Nothing 2019 and he gave Kenny Omega a Paradigm Shift onto the stack of giant poker chips, but it would seem he’s gonna be face to face with Don Callis now. Callis makes his way out to the ring now and fans boo him and his weird low bass rumble theme song. Callis says he has something important to say, and he tells Jon that he isn’t here to cause any trouble. Callis just wants to talk about their history.

Did everyone know that on Callis’ second night in AEW, he cost Moxley the AEW World Championship? Hey, he’s trying to talk to Moxley, stay out of this! The fans keep booing, but Callis says Moxley literally got his pound of flesh. Roll the footage of the night Moxley decked Callis and caused him to be cut open! Then Callis turned on Kenny Omega just a few nights later! Look at Moxley take advantage of that! Without knowing it, they both changed the course of this company! Every morning, Moxley is the first person Callis thinks about, because Callis sees this scar. TWENTY-FOUR stitches! For most, that’d be a deal breaker.

But Callis says he and Moxley aren’t like most people. Not like all of these normies in the crowd! Ironic of Callis to say that when these “normal people” want to see Moxley scar Callis again… But Callis says when he was in the hospital, Moxley opened the door. Callis thought Moxley was gonna finish the job! Moxley put his hand on Callis’ shoulder and said, “You’re one of us now.” Callis looked Moxley in the eyes, and what he saw was nothing! The same as when Callis looks in his eyes. The worst kept secret as that these two are a lot alike. They see everything, but feel nothing! They are “high-functioning sociopaths,” and pro-wrestling gave them a platform to change the world!

Thirty years ago, guys like them would be an institution somewhere! But they worked together and Moxley beat Omega. The fans tell Callis to STFU, but Callis tells Moxley that when Moxley said “You’re one of us now,” Moxley was right! Callis helped Moxley beat Omega, but who didn’t Callis didn’t have to help? Takeshita. And Jon, this isn’t a threat, but Moxley has Takeshita tomorrow and it kills Callis. Callis doesn’t want to see this match. Imagine instead, them on parallel yet separate paths, and just once, if they were going it he same direction! They could run AEW! Tony Khan couldn’t stop them! The UN couldn’t stop them!!

So Callis isn’t here to pitch anything, Moxley’s too smart for that. But just imagine what this could be like. They’re alike! They’re not alone! So instead of the eliminator, use that time to make an announcement about Moxley’s future with The Callis Family! What does Callis have to do to get this done? Moxley is taken aback, paces a bit, and fans want him to deck Callis already. Callis offers the mic and Moxley takes it. The fans sing, “F HIM UP, F HIM UP!” Moxley tells Callis, “Okay, just one question.” Anything! What is it? “Well, if you and I are gonna trust each other, if we’re gonna be on the same page, I’m gonna need more of a commitment than that little baby scar on your forehead right there.”

So how about 24 MORE scars in that big bald head of Callis’? But then Takeshita CLOBBERS Moxley from behind! This was the plan all along, wasn’t it? ALPHA ELBOW!! Takeshita then gets a chair, brings it in, and he puts it around Moxley’s arm! Takeshita stands on the arm, then goes up the corner! The fans boo and Takeshita flips Moxley off, before the DIVING STOMP!! Moxley’s arm could very well be broken inside the chair! And then Takeshita STOMPS the chair more! Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli rush out here and that sends The Callis Family running! The damage has been done, will Moxley be able to stop Takeshita tomorrow night?

 

AEW shares Will Ospreay’s message from after Dynamite last Wednesday.

“You think I look pretty bad about now, right? Nah, this is nothing. Mate, I’ve been on full night benders, woke up in the morning, had a bowl of Coco Pops, got on a plane to Japan, called out the toughest guy and whooped on him in front of his wife and kids while I was smiling, bruv! You think this is the end, Messiah? What, am I to believe in you, am I? You think this scares me? I EFFIN’ LIVE FOR THIS, BRUV! I flew all the way from England on a 10 hour flight, got transferred over the Bakersfield, and this is the best that you got? My Messiah, am I meant to believe in you? Am I meant to believe?

“Nah, mate. The only thing that i believe is bell to bell, internationally known, no one is better than me inside that ring. And now what you’ve done, mate, now what you’ve done is just bonded me with that championship. My blood is on that championship, so now it is my duty, it is my spirit, that is bonded with that championship! So Sunday, in the perfect city to do it in, bet it all, gamble your life on it, son. Cuz now, it is my last mission to take that International Championship from you! And Hell or high water, nothing, nobody, is better than Will Ospreay. Cuz I am on another level!” Will Roddy learn he’s not a Savior but a False Prophet of the Backbreaker?

A huge moment for these three, and they celebrate with Garcia’s dance! Will, Claudio isn’t really into it, not his style. But will this mean big things are in store for Forbidden Door next month?

 

The following message is on behalf of The Elite.

“When it comes to the tireless work of your EVPs, the job is never done. While being the greatest tag team ever is glamorous, it is in the countless hours of thankless service to every single employee where Matthew & Nicholas find their true glory. From the global stars of AEW to the ring crew and everyone in between, The Elite always give back to the business that has given them so much. However, four men, four violent, ungrateful, ignorant, deranged men, want only to destroy what their humble, selfless work has built.” Anarchy in the Arena is coming, but for the fans, your EVPs will never shy away from adversity in their pursuit to #ChangeTheWorld.

So, clearly biased and edited to favor The Young Bucks, Kazuchika Okada & Jack Perry, but will The Elite stop at nothing to stay in control?

Backstage interview with Chris Jericho & “Big Bill” Morrissey.

Arkady Aura is with The Learning Tree & “Redwood,” and notes Jericho’s FTW Championship will be a Triple Threat after Hook and Katsuyori Shibata got a double submission victory. Does this bother Jericho at all? Bill says if he may be so bold, if there is one thing Jericho has always said, it is that when you face adversity, and you are facing the darkest hour, you have to dig deep to pull out the light. Bill is sure that applies here. Jericho agrees. And he loves Arkady’s name, it sounds like a place where you play video games. Anyway, to be serious, he was not expecting to have two opponents.

But now that he does, after 33 YEARS of being on top of the wrestling world, doing the greatest things that’ve ever been done, the fan support that he has, he knows he’ll have to work extra hard to retain the title. But as the longest reigning “For The World Champion” at 44 days, Jericho thinks he will come away with a win. When you’re The Learning Tree, you have to be ready to face all adversaries, and all different types of opponents. But then in walks Bryan Keith. The Bounty Hunter says he missed his shot, but he promises that this ain’t the last we’ve seen of him. Keith heads out, Jericho smiles and thanks him for that.

Will The Ocho defy the one-third odds he has to still be the one with the gold?

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS KM!

#CombatKyle is still a bit sore from losing to Malakai Black, but he isn’t gonna let The End be the end of his comeback! Will he just keep fighting until he’s going for gold?

The bell rings and Kyle runs up to fire off on KM! KM shoves Kyle, swings, but Kyle body shots, KICKS and KICKS! Kyle runs, but KM DROPKICKS him! KM fires up, wrenches and whips Kyle corner to corner hard, and he asks, “Who suck snow?!” The fans say “YOU!” KM runs in, but into a BOOT! KM comes back, into another boot! KM tries again, Kyle dodges the splash! GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! KM RAMS Kyle into buckles, but Kyle holds on tight, body scissors included! KM fades, so Kyle lets go to KICK! AX and- NO, KM blocks the smash! Then he blocks a kick! But Kyle blocks a haymaker to get the ARMBAR!! KM taps, Kyle wins!

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by submission

KOR > KM, and now Kyle is all fired up! Will Kyle be primed to fight for a title after AEW goes Double or Nothing?

 

Willow Nightingale is here!

The fans cheer as the TBS Champion, and her good pal Kris Statlander, heads to the ring. Kris leaves it to Willow from here, and Willow steps in the ring to get a mic. The Babe with the Power says, “Las Vegaaaaas~! Y’know, it feels really great to be here. And on the fifth anniversary of All Elite Wrestling, none the less. And we got Collision on TBS tonight, and you can’t have Collision on TBS without The Face of TBS!” The fans cheer that! Willow revels in their chants a moment before saying thanks. But she also thinks about last night’s Rampage, and how someone else put their hands on her TBS Championships: Mercedes Mone.

The fans are torn but mostly boo The CEO. Willow says Mone has been here about two months, and Willow keeps talking about respect. But we’re way past that now. Tomorrow night, Double or Nothing, Willow will WRECK Mone! She will make Mone long for the days when she was out of harm’s way, sitting at home on the shelf! And Willow knows that championships come and go. But she’ll be DAMNED if tomorrow is the night this reign ends! Because for years, Willow has been working towards HER dream. She’s had knee surgery! Not many known this, but she was almost PARALYZED by a neck injury five years ago, before ever getting to AEW!

So now, Willow gets to live her dream as TBS Champion. And Willow will go through Manitoba Massacres, she will hop on planes to go to Japan, 14 hours each way, and fight in a Stardom ring. So Mercedes, Willow is just getting started! The fans fire up for Willow and she nods. Willow tells Mone that Mone says Willow can’t beat her at 100%. But Willow knows Mone can’t beat Willow at any percent! Because last year, Willow did just that! And tomorrow, at Double or Nothing, she proves that the better woman IS Willow Nightingale! The fans are fired up as Willow holds that title high, but will she be holding it at the end of Sunday night?

 

Backstage interview with Trent Beretta.

Lexy Nair is with #JustTrent and says that he has all the moment going into his match with Orange Cassidy. Aside from that, this is also deeply personal. We saw Trent end Chuck Taylor’s in-ring career, is he going to try that with Cassidy? Trent says that he’s already said everything that he’s had to say about “that con-man narcissist.” Trent vows that tomorrow night, he shows the whole world something Trent’s known for a long time. But in steps Rocky Romero. Azucar knows they haven’t talked, he just wanted to see him before tomorrow night. It’s a big night, Trent’s been here since day one, lots of memories between what was The Best Friends.

No matter what, Rocky just hopes there is a way they can all put this all behind them. They’re more than Best Friends, they’re family! Trent says that’s not happening at all. And don’t ever interrupt him again. Trent leaves, Rocky isn’t sure what to make of that, is Trent already past the point of no return?

 

Fatal 4 Way Tag: The Acclaimed VS The Gates of Agony VS The House of Black VS The Infantry!

While The Young Bucks are busy with Anarchy in the Arena tomorrow night, they will need challengers for their AEW World Tag Team Championships at some point. This match will go a long way in clearing out the pack, who stands tall after this massive match as strong contenders?

But wait, Platinum Max has a diss track on deck! “The House of Black ain’t about s*it, a new ball gag would fit right in with those outfits! I treat Infantry like infants, getting overpowered. Fake American heroes, y’all’re stolen valor! I heard you rap but you’re not as cold as ours. You pissed me off, now you got the golden shower. From the tip of my pee niz to the top of your tongue, don’t talk about me, b*tch! I heard Brian Cage can’t stay hard, your other two guys, I don’t know what their names are! They still talk a big game, but in Vegas, Everybody Loves The Acclaimed!”

Bowens then takes the mic to say, “LAAAS VEGAAAAS~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass~!” And he does! Caster’s words really sting and those punchlines were smart, but will The Acclaimed return to the top of the tag charts?

The teams all sort out, and in this form of Fatal 4, only two teams are legal at a time. Caster and Carlie Bravo start, circle, and they tie up. Bravo rolls Caster up, ONE! Caster rolls Bravo up, TWO! Bravo sweeps to cover, ONE! Caster sweeps to cover, ONE! They stand off, Caster pushes Bravo but Bravo pushes back. They circle, Caster avoids the House of Black and tags Bowens. Bravo isn’t as aware, Buddy Matthews tags in off him. Buddy and Bowens circle, but then Bishop Kaun tags himself in! The Cameroonian Prince tells Bowens to split, then he ties up with the Aussie Juggernaut. Buddy headlocks but Kaun powers out. They RAM shoulders, then Kaun goes again.

They RAM shoulders again, Buddy hits a headlock takeover. Kaun headscissors, Buddy kips free, and the two stand off. Brody calls to Buddy, Buddy tags him in. But Kaun tags Toa Liona and the fans fire up for the big meaty men! Brody and Liona circle, they BLAST Infantry and Acclaimed! Then they run up to LARIAT! “MEAT!” The forearms fly, “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” Bowens gets in but Brody DECKS him! The “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” continues but Caster gets in. Liona DECKS Caster! The “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” gets going, both Infantry get in. Liona and Brody DECK them both! Then Brody ROCKS Liona!

Kaun runs up, Brody BOOTS him! Brody brings Liona up but Liona fireman’s carries! Brody slips free to HEADBUTT, but it hurts Brody! You never headbutt a Samoan! Liona fireman’s carries, Buddy runs up, so Liona dumps Brody to knee Buddy! Liona TOSSES Buddy out, UPPERCUTS him, then ROCKS Brody! Brody leans on ropes, Liona roars, but he runs, and Buddy dumps him out! The teams all fight o the outside, and BRODY DIVES!! Direct hit into the cluster, STRIKE! The fans are thunderous as we go picture in picture!

The House drags people up, Buddy SMACKS Bravo off steps, then THRWOS him into barriers! Brody CHOKES Caster then CLUBS him down! Bowens goes after Liona but Liona RAMS him into steel steps! Brody chokes Caster, Kaun is sent into barriers, and the House mugs Bravo. Brody CLUBS Bowens, Liona throws Shawn Dean around, it is just chaos on the outside! Buddy CHOPS Bravo, Brody CLUBS Bowens, The Gates mug Dean! The ref wants someone to get in the ring, so Liona and Brody storm in. They circle, snarl, but then Caster tags in off Brody! Caster stays back, Buddy tags in off Liona. Buddy runs up, Caster dodges to BACKHAND!

Caster has Buddy in a corner, goes up, but Buddy DUMPS Caster to the apron! But Caster ROCKS Buddy in return! The fans fire up as Caster climbs, but Buddy trips Caster up! Buddy climbs, he brings Caster up, and SUPERPLEXES! Cover, TWO! Buddy tags Brody, then he scoop SLAMS Caster! Brody runs to SENTON! Brody drags Caster up, Collision returns to single picture, and Brody CHPOS Caster down! Tag to Buddy, he ROCKS Caster. The fans rally, Buddy clamps on a SLEEPER! Caster endures, reaches out, and the fans rally more. Caster fights up, JAWBREAKERS, and then flounders.

Buddy anchors Caster’s foot, yanks him back and he BLASTS Bowens! Caster reaches for The Infantry but Buddy keeps Caster from them, too. The Infantry avoid the sucker punches, then Caster dodges Buddy! Infantry get in Caster SUPERKICKS Buddy! The Infantry DOUBLE SUPERKICK! Brody tags in, he misses wide, DOUBLE SUPERKICKS, then DOUBLE SUPERKICKS, then TRIPLE SUPERKICKS!! Brody finally falls, Kaun runs up! SUPERKICK from Caster! TRIPLE SUPERKICKS again! Liona runs up, he CLOBBERS Caster, then breaks through the Infantry’s line to DOUBLE CROSSBODY!

The fans are torn as Liona drags Caster over, tags himself in off Caster, then fires up. Liona runs in at Brody to SPLASH! “MEAT!” Buddy is up top! METEORA! Buddy turns around, Kaun uses Liona as a step for a FLYING SHOTGUN! Caster returns to fireman’s carry, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER on Kaun! Linoa throat chops Caster! Infantry mugs Liona, they hook him up, but Brody CLUBs them all! Brody fires off on Liona, reels him in, but Liona is so big! Linoa fireman’s carries to SAMOAN DROP! Cover, Caster breaks it!

Bravo ROCKS Liona, DUMPS him out, then hurries in. There’s more brawling outside between Gates and Acclaimed, but The Infantry take the corners! They take aim, STEREO SUPER CROSSBODIES!! The fans fire up again and The Infantry are in. They dodge Brody, BOOT Buddy, SUPERKICK and FOREARM for Brody, repeat! They reel Brody in, but he powers out of the double suplexes! The Infantry bob ‘n’ weave, the brawling on the outside gets wilder as Billy Gunn and Brian Cage join in! The Infantry hook Brody up, but Buddy disrupts Boot Camp! Brody CLOBBERS Dean! The other teams are just gone, fighting all the way to the back!

Buddy has Bravo in a corner, the fans hoot with Brody, and he runs in at Bravo, CANNONBALL DROPKICK COMBO!! Cover, The House wins!

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

Brody King & Buddy Matthews are truly a dangerous duo, will they be aimed right at the AEW World Tag Team Champions after Double or Nothing? Will Malakai Black step into the barbed wire steel cage and prove the House Always Wins?

 

Adam “Edge” Copeland speaks.

“Malakai… House of Black… You took the one item that kept me tethered to my comfortable world. The second I stepped foot in AEW, I knew it was only a matter of time before you’d set your sights on me. You were born out of the shadows that I cast. But I’ve been walking this path since before your balls dropped. But you’ve shown me. You’ve shown me where I need to navigate from. I need to go back to the pits. To the margins, to the outside looking in. You wanted this version of me, the version that has a devil on this shoulder, but no angel to be found.

“It’s fitting that this barbed wire steel cage match happens in the land of neon lights, and the violence that will take place within this steel cage is a fitting juxtaposition. Malakai, you said if I lose, I bend the knee, I join the House of Black. Oh, can you imagine? Can you imagine the force that we would be? And in a storybook ending, you defeat your influence, only we… We don’t deal in dreams. Our currency is nightmares, this is a horror story. Has it ever dawned on you, Malakai, that I used this to get closer to The House? What if I defeat you, and the House joins me?

“Buddy and Brody know the Devil that lives in my heart. I’ve been known to be a master manipulator. The House of Blood… That’s something I can sink my teeth into. Questions. So many questions. But Malakai, know this fact: When you see evil in a man’s eyes, it’s already too late.” Edge snaps his fingers and the lights go out. Will this darkness consume all of AEW as things get Rated R?

 

AEW shares Toni Storm’s message from after Dynamite.

“Serena Deeb… This isn’t for you. This is for everyone like you. This is for everyone that thinks that because they’ve had a sad life, it entitles them to some kind of reward. Nothing happens for a reason, darling. Things just happen. If everything happened for a reason, then there would be ONE main event at Double or Nothing, and it would be me talking for 40 minutes while you sit around and analyze my words like a Zapruder Film! But no, instead I have to fight for my life against a woman who thinks that twitching on the floor was a sign from the universe that she should keep wrestling!

“You want to be a victim? I will make you a victim. I will make your three seizures feel like a Sunday stroll in the bloody park! The saddest part about your life is that you thought it had any meaning at all. But don’t worry. In your obituary, they will mention that you lost to the champ.” The leading lady is even more vicious than ever, will she make sure Deeb never works in this town again?

 

Mariah May VS Leyla Hirsch!

Toni Storm’s protege is herself riding high after the big tag win on Wednesday, but now she’s got a LEGIT opponent standing across from her. Will Mariah still be able to shine on her own? Or will she be lost without her mentor by her side?

The bell rings, the fans rally, and the two circle. They tie up, Mariah powers Leyla to ropes, and the ref counts. Mariah lets off, Leyla runs up and gets around. Leyla shoves Mariah to a corner, runs up, but Mariah goes up and over. Leyla storms up on Mariah again, but Mariah CHOPS! Mariah shrugs, CHOPS again, then CHOPS again. Mariah CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS, but Leyla ROCKS her! Leyla gets in Mariah’s face, or uh, chest rather. So Mariah makes sure Leyla gets a face full of it! The fans fire up, Leyla is flustered, and Mariah does a little dance. Leyla is furious, Mariah shrugs, and then Leyla clinches! BELLY2BELLY!

Leyla drags Mariah up but Mariah fireman’s carries! SAMOAN DROP! Mariah sits Leyla up, runs, and SHOTGUNS Leyla down! Mariah rocks out and Collision goes picture in picture.

Mariah swaggers around as the fans cheer, and she brings Leyla up. Mariah bumps Leyla off buckles, and puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOPS! Leyla shoves Mariah, Mariah scuffs her, then snapmares her. Mariah does a little prance then runs to PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO! Mariah clamps onto Leyla with a body scissors and full nelson, then shifts to a short arm scissor! Leyla fights around, powers Mariah to a pump handle and cording hold! Mariah throws Leyla off her, then DECKS her!

Mariah runs corner to corner, to go into the STRATUSPHERE! Leyla flounders, Mariah says kiss this! SWEET HIP- NO, Leyla gets around to O’Conner Roll! Then she blocks a kick to get around and GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Mariah survives and Leyla is stunned!

Leyla hurries to drag Mariah up, the fans rally and duel, but Mariah ROCKS Leyla! Leyla gets Mariah in a clinch, but Mariah slips out! Mariah HEADBUTTS Leyla, then KNEES her down!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

And with that, Storm’s understudy puts away another one! Will Mariah be primed for a title opportunity of her own after Double or Nothing?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Double or Nothing!

After Brian Cage called The Acclaimed out last night on Rampage, and after the brawling that took them all out of the Fatal 4 Way tonight, Tony Khan has made a big Six Man Tag grudge match for The Buy-In! Will The Acclaimed & Billy Gunn get a big win on Sunday? Or will they fail to escape the #CageOfAgony?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexy is now with The Professor, and brings up those “vicious” comments by Toni Storm. We are less than 24 hours from their match, is Deeb ready? Deeb says tomorrow night is the biggest match of her career. Double or Nothing, or perhaps Deeb or Nothing. Toni Storm, in this lead up to the match, they’ve had some fun and games. Storm stole the banner, paraded around in it, but let Deeb ask you this: It wasn’t so fun when you had to throw in the towel and save that stooge, Mariah, from losing a leg, now was it? And Deeb is sure Mariah is grateful to Storm for making sure she could walk out of there that night. But Deeb can’t say the same for Storm.

Deeb will stretch Storm limb from limb, and it’s been a long time coming. Tomorrow night, Deeb finally becomes AEW Women’s World Champion! And “Timeless” Toni Storm will become Time’s Up Toni Storm. See you tomorrow night. The Professor is ready to teach the Leading Lady a life lesson, will it have to be learned the hard way?

 

AEW takes a closer look at Swerve VS Christian.

The Patriarch says, “Swerve, I felt it was apropos to return to the scene of the crime. The crime you committed against my son. My son, Nick, learned to walk in this ring before he could even run these ropes. Because you didn’t just jump my son, Nick, in a random wrestling gym. You jumped him on holy ground. An eye for an eye.” Swerve admits his methods were a “little misunderstood,” a little skewed, but he always got things done in the ring. No one can ever say Swerve didn’t deserve the world title. Christian hears a lot about Swerve’s House. And he told Swerve that he never forgets.

All In Wembley, Swerve embarrassed Christian. Christian said he’d make Swerve a footnote, but that’s no longer enough. Swerve must be held accountable for his crimes. Two years in AEW and people are still calling Swerve a footnote. He’s on TV, he promises AEW, he promotes AEW on radio and podcasts. He is the face of AEW, the world is forgetting Christian Cage. Christian reminds us that he is taking something from Swerve every week. For every ounce of Nick’s blood that was spilt, Christian is taking the title. Swerve asks if Nick’s yet to learn his lessons. Swerve doesn’t think they have it in them to do this to a world champion!

Swerve has built his house, and at Double or Nothing, he proves it’s whose house? The reason Swerve is not sleeping at home is because he’s too busy building this house! Christian vows to wipe Swerve from the annals of AEW, and to become the NEW AEW World Champion. Two fathers fighting for their families and their legacies, but whose house must suffer for the other’s to thrive?

 

Six Man Tag; Bryan Danielson & FTR VS Team Triple J!

The American Dragon & #TopGuys made it through Archer & The Righteous last week, but another faction just had to take The Elite up on that Double or Nothing bounty. Will Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh get another big bag of money for this hit job? Or will Bryan, Dax & Cash prove nothing’s gonna stop them before Anarchy in the Arena?

The trios sort out but Triple J keeps ’em guessing. Things finally settle down, and it is Bryan starting against Jarrett. They circle, tie up, and Jarrett arm-drags! And arm-drags again! And even a JAPANESE ARM-DRAG! Jarrett does the Fargo Strut, and he tags in Lethal! Bryan keeps cool as he and Lethal circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Lethal knees low. Lethal swaggers, pie faces, runs, but into a kitchen sink knee! Bryan KICKS Lethal, drags him up, and tags in Dax. Dax kicks Lethal, puts him in a corner, and CHOPS! And UPPERCUTS! And CHOPS again! Dax brings Lethal over, bumps him off buckles, then whips.

Cash tags in, then slingshots to SHOULDER TACKLE! The fans fire up and Cash bumps Lethal off buckles hard! Lethal sputters, Cash CHOPS him! Cash goes up, and he rains down fists! But Jarrett storms in, so Cash CROSSBODIES him! Lethal gets Cash but Cash atomic drops back! Cash finishes up on those fists, but Jarrett distracts the ref, and Satnam grabs Cash by the neck! HOTSHOT for Cash! Satnam drags Cash out to CHOP! Sonjay laughs at Cash, the ref tells Triple J to back off, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Satnam shoves Cash in for Lethal to drag around. Lethal has the leg, stomps it, steps through, FIGURE FOUR! Cash endures and his team coaches him but Lethal thrashes the leg! Cash reaches out, has to be careful about his shoulders, and he ROCKS Lethal! Lethal lets Cash go, but then CLUBS Cash! Lethal stomps and CLUBS Cash, then tags Jarrett in. They double whip but Cash reverses. Only to get caught in a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Jarrett taunts Dax, stomps Cash, then kicks him around. Jarrett stomps Cash more and more, then drags him up. Jarrett whips, ELBOWS Cash down, and he stays between Cash and his team.

Jarrett drags Cash around to drop elbows on the knee! Jarrett then clamps on a toehold and pulls on the leg. Cash endures, tries to fight back but Jarrett elbows him. Cash CLUBS away on Jarrett, Jarrett elbows him again, and Cash’s shoulders are down! TWO, and Cash CLAWS at Jarrett’s face! Jarrett lets go of the leg to stomp it! Jarrett KICKS the leg out, and Cash falls over again. Cash rises, but Jarrett KICKS the leg again! And then clamps on for a SHIN BREAKER! Jarrett drags Cash around, steps through, but Cash BOOTS him away! Jarrett hits buckles, falls back, and Collision returns to single picture!

Both men crawl for their corners, the fans rally, and Lethal jumps in to get Cash’s leg! Cash still jumps around, and hot tags Dax! Dax JABS, JABS and DECKS Lethal! And DECKS Jarrett! Dax whips Lethal, Lethal reverses but Dax snatches him for a package, TWO! Dax whips, Lethal reverses, and Satnam gets the cheap shot! LETHAL COMBINATION! The fans boo but Lethal storms up on Dax. Lethal drags Dax over, points to the big man, and the fans boo. But Lethal tags in the One in a Billion! Satnam dribbles Dax like a basketball! The fans do cheer the show of strength, and Jarrett says he and Lethal can just relax now!

Jarrett & Lethal take a seat in some chairs, Karen sitting on her hubby’s lap, and Satnam palms Dax’s head like a basketball! Cash AX HANDLES, but Satnam is just upset! Satnam SHOVES Cash up and out! Dax is in a corner, Satnam run sin, but Dax dodges! No more relaxing, Jarrett tags in! But so does Bryan! The fans fire up as Bryan fires hands on Jarrett! “YES! YES! YES!” The fans fire up as Bryan KICKS away on Jarrett, “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan climbs up to rain down fists! The fans count all the way to TEN, then Bryan whips corner to corner. Jarrett reverses, Bryan goes up and over and keeps moving! Bryan ducks ‘n’ dodges to LEAPING LARIAT!

Vegas is all fired up with Bryan and he runs to DROPKICK in the corner! Bryan keeps moving, another DROPKICK! Bryan keeps moving, but gets under Jarrett’s lariat to wrangle him! Omoplata, LEBELL LOCK! Lethal CLOBBERS Bryan! Cash storms in, DUMPS Lethal out, and then he calls to Bryan. Bryan builds speed, and DIVES while Cash PLANCHAS! Down go Lethal and Jarrett! Dax says OLE to Satnam and sends him into steel steps! Satnam hobbles his way into the ring, Bryan & FTR get in! They surround the giant, and they KICK! KICK! KICK! “YES! YES! YES!” TRIPLE KICKS rattle Satnam from all sides!

Bryan winds up, to BUZZSAW! FTR mock The Bucks, F T R TRIGGER!! And then BUSAIKU KNEE!!! Satnam staggers about! Lethal gets in, DOUBLE LETHAL INJECTION on FTR!! But Bryan DISCUS LARIATS Lethal! Jarrett reels Bryan in, but Bryan slips around! Jarrett still RAMS Bryan into buckles! The fans boo as now Karen gets Jarrett the guitar! But the ref snatches it! Aubrey’s been through this crap before and she tells Karen, “Not tonight, b*tch!” But then Sonjay gets Jarrett a chair! Jarrett aims at Bryan, takes a swing, but Bryan dodges and the chair SMACKS Satnam!! The giant tumbles up and out!!

Bryan aims, Jarrett panics, BUSAIKU KNEE!! Lethal runs in, into a SHATTER MACHINE!! Cover on Jarrett, Team AEW wins!

Winners: Bryan Danielson & FTR, by pinfall

Karen is furious but there’s nothing she can do about it! Cash gets a mic and says, “2020, FTR made the debut in AEW for the first time in our careers. Four years ago, that very moment, AEW became our home. AEW is where I will live, I will breathe, I will fight, I will DIE for this company! Everybody, wrestling fans, are better off because of AEW. Wrestlers are better off because of AEW! The entire wrestling world is better off because of All Elite Wrestling!” The fans agree with all of that! Cash says FTR & Bryan might be beat up, might be hurt, they and Darby Allin might limp into Double or Nothing. But Cash swears that they’re the only ones that’ll walk out!

Dax takes the mic to say that five years ago, almost to the day, in this building, the same people here tonight, this company started. Why is FTR fighting for AEW? It is not just this company that FTR is fighting for. They are fighting for every single man and woman that wakes up in the morning, goes to work, has a terrible day, but comes home, turns their TVs on, and watches AEW. And for that one moment in time, whether it’s one or two hours, all those problems are gone. One time a week, two times a week, FTR gets to be their hero. If they were to die tomorrow, Anarchy in the Arena, they will be your heroes. #TopGuysOut!

The fans are fired up, just like The American Dragon & FTR! Will they and the Relentless Darby Allin tear down the corrupt Elite to save All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A very good Collision, but it always feels like things get so talkie. And that kinda happened here because this was the go home show. All the promos were well done, as they almost always are, but were also in many ways redundant. Well, mostly the Chris Jericho one, but I guess him taking up screentime is part of the gimmick now. Willow’s was really good, too, but I wouldn’t say that changed the go home math or anything. Edge’s promo after that awesome Fatal 4 was also good, and I suppose that’s the promo that matters since he is now turning the tables on Malakai. Edge naturally would want to lead the faction rather than join it, but again something feels very Edge & Judgment Day about this, not sure what happens here.

Storm’s promo certainly helps her ride that Tweener line. On one point, yeah, she’s right, tragedy in life doesn’t entitle anyone to anything outside of sympathy. But at the same time, she sure didn’t show any sympathy to Deeb’s tragedy. Deeb’s response was also good, the title match will be great stuff, but surely Storm retains. And I will say that we got a very good video package for Christian and Swerve, I just wish it wasn’t also on the night bogged down by other promos. The irony is, this video could’ve been on the Countdown to Double or Nothing special from last night, but I wouldn’t know because I didn’t watch it. There must be fans who do watch it if AEW keeps doing them. But it just feels like after five years, AEW would’ve figured out how to not make things feel redundant.

Great opening promo from Moxley with Callis, and good ambush from Takeshita. I thought that with Double or Nothing only giving us a Title Eliminator, Takeshita would still win and force something for Forbidden Door. Now I don’t know. Maybe Takeshita defies the math and wins with cheating, or they go outside the box and have Moxley get disqualified because he’s just that pissed. Great opening Six Man Tag right after, with Hiroshi Tanahashi being a great surprise. A great win for the Faces there, and there’s any number of possibilities for Forbidden Door, but surely Tanahashi will want a part of that card.

Great tag match of Gunns VS Lucha Bros, but I figured Lucha Bros would win to force the trios title match. Granted, still don’t see Death Triangle winning out, but it’ll be a great match. And also of course another match is added to the Buy-In, it’s what happens with all AEW PPVs. Great filler squash of Kyle beating KM, Kyle should definitely be waiting on the other side of Double or Nothing for a title match, and it’d be fitting continuity if he went for the TNT Championship after having his matches with Edge and the House of Black. A good filler match from Mariah and Leyla, with a good win for Mariah. It’d be a bit copy-paste from ROH making Athena & Billie Starkz a mentor-mentee champion duo, but what if Mariah tried for the TBS Championship before going for the world title?

And great main event Six Man Tag, but of course the Faces won. Very good closing promos from FTR, though Dax has used his spiel about doing this for us, the hardworking folks, before and it’s a bit redundant again. I still want this to turn into AEW Avengers: Endgame or whatever, but the way things are going, I would think Team AEW, aka the Faces, find a way to win to motivate Bucks VS FTR “One last time” and at All In 2024.

My Score: 8.7/10
