RJ City has a red carpet interview with Sammy & Tay.

“Violence is in the air, but also love,” because he’s with the AAA Mixed Tag Team Champions who will be defending their titles tonight against Ruby Soho & Ortiz. Who are the lovebirds wearing and how are they feeling? Sammy says Chicago loves America’s Favorite Champions! Fans boo, actually. But Sammy says what the fans really want to see is SamTay make out. Tay agrees, they kiss, a lot, and RJ feels awkward. But honk honk honk! Who is that? Sammy & Tay go looking because this noise is disturbing their good times. Wait! On the golf cart, sans canopy, is Soho & Ortiz! And they’ve got war paint on! RUN, SAMTAY, RUN!!

Sammy knows they’re not fast enough to outrun the cart so he shoves Tay to safety before he gets CLOBBERED! Sammy just can’t seem to get away from cart based vehicular assault. Ortiz goes after Sammy while Ruby SMACKS Tay with the trash! Chicago fires up as Ortiz takes the can and SMACKS Sammy! Ortiz then gives Sammy a back suplex onto the cart’s hood! Ruby is carrying Tay to the ring, then Ortiz does the same with Sammy! Ruby sets Tay down to then RAM her into steel steps! Ortiz puts Sammy in the ring, and the match begins!

Zero Hour – AAA World Mixed Tag Team Championships: Sammy Guevara & Tay Melo VS Ortiz & Ruby Soho!

Sammy flounders, Tay hurries over, Ruby MISSILE DROPICK SENTONS, taking them both out! Fans fire up as all four people are down! Tay tells the ref something is in her eye, but this is just a distraction so Anna “Jay A.S.” can sneak out here!

The JAS, or rather, Jay A S, helps SamTay stay on top! Will any duo ever stop the honeymoon reign of terror? Or will “love” conquer all?

 

Zero Hour – FTW Championship: Hook VS Angelo Parker w/ Matthew Menard!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil truly lives by the motto of “actions speak louder than words.” And to date, he’s been pretty “loudly” dominating his opponents. But the JAS’s “Cool Hand Ange” wants to know: What if Hook faces some real competition? The real question is, will Parker like the answer Hook gives him?

The introductions are raised, the belt is raised, and we see what happens when someone actually wants AEW to #SendHook!

Hook and Parker circle, tie up, and go around. Parker puts Hook on ropes, dribbles him, but Hook switches to hammerlock! Parker reaches back to pull hair but the ref reprimands. Parker switches the hammerlock onto Hook, but Hook immediately puts it back on Parker. Hook then floats to a facelock and he drags Parker to the mat. Parker endures and fights up to power up, but Hook holds on tight! Parker pushes Hook back to a corner but Hook pushes Parker back to center. Hook then headlocks, shifts, hammerlocks, headlocks and hits the takeover! Parker scrambles away but Hook is after him, but Parker gets in the ropes.

Menard gets on the apron to protest, but he also distracts the ref, and Parker sucker punches Hook! Daddy Magic laughs as he backs away, and Parker brings Hook up to whip him into the ropes!

Parker whips Hook and DROPKICKS him down!

Daddy Magic is the only one cheering “the beauty” of that dropkick while fans boo. Parker taunts Hook, pushes him around, then throws hands. Parker says he’s exposing Hook! “Where’s the bad man? Where’s the myth?” Hook  shoves then HEADBUTTS Parker! Parker says his nose is broken and the ref checks, but this is a distraction so Menard can hook Hook’s foot! Hook doesn’t budge, and he STOMPS Menard’s hands! Hook storms up on Parker, blocks the haymaker and hits a SAYANAGI! And then a knee to another SAYANAGI! Parker staggers into the EXPLODER! Fans fire up for Hook as he paces around.

Hook drags Parker from the ropes but Parker BOOTS him! Parker puts Hook in a corner but Hook turns things around to fire body shots! Hook backs Parker down to a corner, fires off more, but Parker pulls hair to ROCK Hook! Parker tells fans Hook is doing nothing! But then he walks right into the EL CAMINO! Parker flounders to a corner, Hook runs in, but Parker goes up and over! Parker suplexes Hook, Hook slips out and has the REDRUM!! Parker flails, but he TAPS!! Hook wins!!

Winner: Hook, by submission (still FTW Champion)

Hook drops Parker, but Menard CLOBBERS Hook! Fans boo as Menard stomps a mudhole into Hook in the corner! The ref reprimands but Menard gets Parker up. Menard grabs the belt, but here comes ACTION BRONSON! Friend to Hook and the man behind Hook’s theme song, Bronson gets in the ring to throw Menard away! And SLAM Parker down! Fans fire up for Bronson daring Parker & Menard to return, and they definitely consider it. But then Hook stands back up and they don’t want any more! Will Daddy Magic get his own turn at fighting for the FTW title? And will Hook make him regret it?

 

AEW All-Atlantic Championship: PAC VS Kip Sabian!

As the inaugural champion, The Bastard took this title on a tour of the UK. And every step of the way, Kip was stalking him in his box head get-up. But now that Kip is back, will he finally get gold like what he’s always wanted? Or will Pac make this return to the ring very bad for Mr. Superbad?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if the inaugural reign continues!

Kip and Pac circle, tie up, and Pac puts Kip on ropes. The ref counts the ropebreak, Pac lets off slowly, and Kip taunts Pac. Pac snapmares Kip, Kip gets up and runs to BOOT Pac! Kip then stomps a mudhole in the corner until the ref backs him off. Fans boo Kip but he runs corner to corner to CANNONBALL! Kip soaks up the cheers and jeers, has them grow louder and quieter, up and down, then laughs. Pac bails out of the ring but Kip pursues. Pac gets in the ring then stomps Kip on the return! Pac drags Kip up, scoops him, carries him, and SLAMS him in a drop zone! Pac goes up and fans fire up, but Kip GAMANGIRIS first!

Kip goes up after Pac, brings him to the top, but Pac fights with body shots. Pac shoves Kip, Kip rolls back and gets under the leap. Pac comes back but is put on the apron. Kip ducks the backhand to FLYING CHUCK! Fans fire up as Pac slumps off the apron. Kip slingshots, Pac moves, but Kip faked him out! Pac is annoyed that he fell for it, then he runs in. Pac rushes Kip but Kip dumps him out! Fans chant “Underrated! OVER IT!” for Kip as he ARABIAN PRESSES Pac down! Fans fire up as Kip grins with a maniacal look in his eyes. Kip drags Pac up, puts Pac in the ring, and Pac scrambles to the far side.

Pac bails out again but fans rally up. Kip goes around the outside, storms up on Pac and he blocks the kick to KNEE back! Kip reels Pac in, suplexes and drapes Pac on the railing, but Pac fights that off to suplex Kip, BRAINBUSTER to the floor! Fans fire up while both men are down and the ring count climbs. Pac stands at 6 of 10, refreshes the count at 7, then he brings Kip up. Pac whips Kip hard into railing! Kip writhes but Pac drags him up. Pac puts Kip in the ring, BOOTS Kip down, then stalks him to ropes. Pac digs his boots in but the ref counts. Pac lets off and glares at the ref, but goes back to Kip with another BOOT!

Pac stomps Kip in the corner, grinds his boots in, but lets off as the ref counts. Kip sputters and fans are torn but Pac keeps his focus. Pac drags Kip up, snapmares Kip and sits him up to dropkick him in the back of the head! Cover, TWO! Pac tells the ref to count faster, then he stalks Kip. Kip sits up and Pac BOOTS him back down! Kip slaps himself to try and get the cobwebs out. Fans rally and Pac taunts Kip. Kip sits up and Pac shouts, “Is this the competition, huh?!” Kip stands up, leaning against Pac, but Kip throws a forearm! Pac says to put some power into it! Kip fires another forearm but Pac still eggs him on!

Kip fires off forearms but Pac gives them all back! Kip drops to his knees and Pac revels in the cheers and jeers. Kip holds up his hand, and… Is he pulling on an invisible string to stand himself up? Kip HEADBUTTS Pac! Both men wobble, Kip runs, but into a BOOT! Pac runs, but into an UPPERCUT! Kip runs but fakes Pac out to POP-UP KNEE and ROLLING HAYMAKER! Then a SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Pac flounders and fans fire up with Kip! But Pac dodges Kip to SNAP GERMAN! Both men are down and fans fire up more! A standing count starts, both men are down at 5 of 10 but the fans rally up.

Pac sits up at 6 while Kip goes to the far side. Pac stands at 7, he sees Kip is in a drop zone! Pac hurries to the corner and climbs up! Fans fire up, but Kip rolls to the opposite side. Pac is frustrated and hops down. Pac storms over but Kip blocks the punch! Kip bumps Pac off buckles, then jumps in to TORNADO DDT! Kip hurries to get Pac up, hang him out to dry, MAGIC SCREW! Cover, TWO! Kip fisherman’s the leg, FISHERMAN DRIVER! Cover, TWO!! The Bastard survives and Kip is a bit shocked! Kip goes to the corner, and he asks the box what to do? Kip seems to get a response, and he drags Pac back up.

Pac stomps Kip more and more, and fans fire up as Kip eggs him on! Pac stomps Kip again, then drags him to the drop zone. Pac goes up top, takes aim, BLACK ARROW!! Cover, Pac wins!

Winner: PAC, by pinfall (still AEW All-Atlantic Champion)

The Bastard is 4-0 in defending the All-Atlantic Championship and the reign continues! Tony Schiavone interviews Pac on stage, congratulating him on the win. That was the first defense in the states, and Pac says he’ll explain what he’s looking for. Wait! Jefferson Starship’s Jane starts up, because here comes ORANGE CASSIDY! Pac has history with The Freshly Squeezed, and Pac tells him, “NO! Orange Cassidy, we have been here before, and you know exactly how that ended. You are not a wrestler, you are a joke. Get to the back of the line!” Pac storms off, but if Cassidy is at the back of the line, does that mean he can fight his way to the front?

As for Kip, he’s yelling at the box! Wait, he’s yelling at the box? Kip says it’s the box’s fault he lost, but what exactly is going on in Kip’s head?

 

Zero Hour – Tomohiro Ishii VS Eddie Kingston!

The Stone Pitbull won at NJPW Capital Collision in Washington, DC, but a lot can change in four months. Will the Mad King break through this pillar of Strong Style? Or will Ishii show it’s still too soon for Kingston to think he’s at the top?

The bell rings and the fans fire up as the two tie up. They’re in a deadlock so they break. They tie up again, but break again.

Eddie CHOPS Ishii again, but Ishii CHOPS Eddie again! Eddie CHOPS, Ishii CHOPS, repeat! And repeat, and repeat, and repeat! Fans are loving the CHOP battle as it rages on, CHOP for CHOP! Both men’s chests are turning reddish-purple! CHOP, CHOP! CHOP, CHOP! CHOP, CHOP!!

Fans are giving this a standing ovation over just the unending CHOPS! Both men finally stop for a moment, stinging and staggering, but then the CHOPS start up again!

Ishii fights the saido with elbows, then suplexes Eddie high and hard!

Both men rise, gritting their teeth from the stinging red meat in their chests. Eddie gets to a corner and Ishii runs in, but Eddie dodges to CHOP! And CHOP! And MACHINEGUN CHOPS!! Eddie tops it off with another CHOP and Ishii drops to a knee! Eddie then double underhooks for a BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Fans fire up again as Eddie powers up and drags Ishii up, DDT!! Eddie powers up his arm and he runs, to SLIDING FOREARM! Cover, TWO!! Ishii is still in this and Eddie scowls. Fans want more “CHOPS! CHOPS!

Casino Ladder Match: Claudio Castagnoli VS Wheeler Yuta VS Penta El Zero M VS Rey Fenix VS Rush VS Andrade El Idolo VS Dante Martin VS ???

An interesting “hand” for this match. It’s every man for himself, but we have two members of the Blackpool Combat Club, both Lucha Brothers and two members of La Faccion Ingobernable! Angel Dorado and the mysterious “Joker” are the real wild cards in this, but who will earn that future AEW World Championship match?

First out is the ROH Pure Champion, Wheeler Yuta, and the Immortal Firebird, Rey Fenix! We saw in Dynamite’s Fatal 4 Way sampler that Yuta could find his way around #ANIMO, but will things be different now that it’s anything goes? The bell rings, fans are fired up and Fenix CHOPS! Yuta forearms, Fenix CHOPS, Yuta CHOPS, Fenix forearms, Yuta forearms, then Fenix gets the edge with forearms! Fenix puts Yuta in a corner and CHOPS him!

Fenix and Yuta brawl again, Yuta throws Fenix out and climbs again! Rush gest in, drags Yuta down, then shoves the ladder aside. Rush ROCKS Yuta, folds up the ladder and puts it in a corner. Yuta ROCKS Rush, CHOPS him, ROCKS him, but Rush OVERHEAD Belly2Belly suplexes Yuta onto the ladder! Yuta writhes but Fenix gets on the apron, only for Rush to run and HEADBUTT Fenix down! Fans are torn as Rush fires up and builds speed. Rush FLIES and takes out Fenix at the ramp! Rush then whips Fenix into railing, and more railing! Rush snapmares Fenix and gathers up camera cable to LASH Fenix! But the countdown is back! The fourth man is… ANDRADE EL IDOLO!

LFI is now at full power in this match, and Rush sets up some ladders. Andrade takes his time putting his entrance attire aside as Rush ELBOWS Yuta. Rush sets a ladder up in the ring, but he decides not to climb. Andrade gets in, LFI fist bump, then Andrade and Rush set another ladder up as a bridge between the ropes and the main ladder. LFI goes out after Fenix and Rush ROCKS him! Andrade CHOPS Yuta, Rush POSTS Fenix, and then LFI gets another ladder? They set this ladder up as a bridge between ring and railing. Rush RAMS Fenix into the side of it! LFI gets in the ring, and both men climb up. But Fenix and Yuta both get in!

Yuta YANKS Rush down but Andrade kicks Fenix away! Yuta joins Andrade up top and they brawl! Andrade SMACKS Yuta off the top, but decides not to get the poker chip. He SUPER SUNSET BOMBS Yuta on the ladder bridge! Fans lose their minds and the countdown is back already! The fifth man is… CLAUDIO GADDAM CASTAGNOLI! The ROH World Champion CLOBBERS Rush, checks on Yuta, then hurries into the ring. Chicago is thunderous for Claudio as he puts the ladder bridge all the way into the main ladder. Claudio uses that as a quick way to get up the main ladder, but he sees Andrade go up the other side.

Claudio swings around the ladder to grab at Andrade’s legs. Andrade kicks but can’t get free, and Claudio decides to lift the ladder construct! Andrade clings to the ladder, as Claudio now uses the ladder that juts out from the side as a pivot point! Andrade is oddly parallel to the floor with this as Claudio keeps lifting! Claudio tips the ladder sideways and Andrade falls to the floor!! Fans are thunderous for the Swiss Superman as he resets things, but here comes the sixth man… DANTE MARTIN! The #INHUMAN joins in just as Fenix and Claudio fight over the same ladder. They decide to rush Dante, but he jumps OVER the ladder!

Wait, the other ladder is going rogue! It is falling over! Dante avoids getting bashed by it, then he waistlocks Claudio. Claudio shrugs Dante off, steps over the fallen ladder to corner Fenix with the other! Dante kicks the ladder to jam Fenix, then he springboard stomps it to jam Claudio’s hands! Dante fires off kicks, then he spots Fenix as he slips free. Fenix rushes in, Dante jumps over, and Claudio TOSSES Fenix out! Dante dumps Claudio out, and fans fire up as Dante goes to the apron.

DESTROYER on the ramp for Dante!! Then Rush runs in, into a SLINGBLADE! Fans are thunderous and Penta gets in the ring!

Yuta runs in but Penta throws him into a headstand on the corner! SUPERKICK! Yuta flops to the floor but Claudio EuroUppers Penta! Claudio whips Penta to a corner, but Penta goes up and over to BACKSTABBER! Penta fires up and so do the fans! “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta runs in, Claudio puts him on the apron, and Penta GAMANGIRIS! Andrade ROCKS Penta, CHOPS Penta, then fireman’s carries to aim for the ladder bridge! Penta fights free, brings Andrade to the bridge, but Rush rushes in! Fenix TIGHTROPE PENALTY KICKS Rush down! Penta and the fans shout, “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta gives Andrade a DESTROYER to the ladder!!

Fans lose their minds but that’s not the end! Fenix has Rush on a table, goes to the post, FROG SPLASH through the table!! The Lucha Brothers just took out LFI and fans are loving it! The BCC meanwhile work together to get a ladder back up under the poker chip. They both climb, but Dante springboards back into the picture! He lands on Claudio’s back and climbs up! Yuta and Dante brawl at the very top! But wait! Who are these guys in masks and jackets?! They tip over the ladder and both Dante and Yuta crash down! One of them mugs Claudio in the corner! Fans boo but there’s another who mugs Alex Abrahantes, and still another that took out Jose the Assistant!

Claudio gets sent into railing! And then Dante! And then Yuta! A fifth masked man climbs the ladder to grab the poker chip! Fans boo but the man on the ladder reveals himself! It’s STOKELY HATHAWAY!? And then the others are Ethan Page, Lee Moriarty, W. Morrissey and the Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten! Stokely’s stable just stole the prize, right as “The Joker” is about to come out! It’s… Uh, well, the song is The Rolling Stones’ Sympathy For The Devil, and it’s another man in a mask! Kind of a devilish mask. Is he going to take the mask off? NOPE, he wags his finger at us all instead. Stokely and “the devil” leave with the poker chip, who just stole the title shot?

Winner: “The Devil” (earns a future AEW World Championship opportunity)

 

AEW World Trios Championship Tournament Finals: The Elite VS The Good, The Bad & The Hungy!

Once upon a time, “The Elite” included Hangman Adam Page. That’s even how All Elite Wrestling began. But things like time, money, power, fame, success and even failure change people. Hangman originally wanted to stay out of this tournament, rejecting the offer from his old friends, the Young Bucks. But when Hangman’s new friends, John Silver & Alex Reynolds, needed help, he couldn’t leave them hanging. But will there still be hang-ups between Hangman and The, Elite, the the Elite?

“And now… He is 2-0 since returning to AEW from a 277 day absence. Even though Hangman was the number one pick of the Young Bucks, he was the number one wrestler in the 2018 and 2021 PWI 500. He is Kevin Nash’s new favorite wrestler, and some might say he is Will Ospreay’s favorite, as well. Will Ospreay has taken his ball and gone home while he is still here. He is appearing in his first PPV since November’s Full Gear. Here tonight in Chicago, he could become the first wrestler to hold three AEW titles, and represent both Winnipeg, Manitoba and NOOORTH~, CAROLINA! He is… KENNY! OOOOOOOOOOMEEEEEEGAAAAA~!”

So needless to say, the introductions are made, and the trios titles are on display as one way or another, we crown NEW champions in AEW!

The trios sort out and Hangman starts against Nick Jackson. Fans fire up for The Elite as Nick and Hangman circle. They tie up, Hangman gets the arm, wrenches to a wristlock, but Nick wrenches back. Hangman uses the ropes to flip through and break the wristlock. Hangman wrenches and hammerlocks to headlock, but Nick powers out, only for Hangman to run him over! Fans fire up and things speed up, Hangman whips Nick but Nick hurdles. Nick handsprings, Hangman kips up and ducks the screw high kick! Nick ducks the lariat, and the fans cheer the standoff! Nick and Hangman shake hands to show there’s still respect here.

Matt calls to Nick and Nick gives him the tag. Hangman tags in Reynolds and now Matt and Reynolds tie up. Reynolds wrenches an arm, wristlocks, but Matt rolls and kips up to wrench back. Matt wristlocks, Reynolds rolls, handsprings and wrenches back. Reynolds headlocks for a takeover but Matt headscissors. Reynolds kips free and fans cheer this standoff. Reynolds offers a handshake of good sportsmanship, but Matt SPITS at him! Seems Matt doesn’t care that Hangman is their mutual friend. Fans boo Matt but Reynolds tackles him and fires off hands! The ref reprimands the closed fists and he drags Reynolds away.

AEW TBS Championship: Jade Cargill w/ The Baddies VS Athena!

#ThatBitch is still undefeated at 36-0, but the Fallen Goddess did point out that streak has been stretched out over two whole years. The numbers don’t lie, and the truth of the matter is, this one has been a long time coming! Will Jade’s streak continue through this already historic night? Or will Athena go all out to finally stop the storm?

Athena makes her entrance with new bionic wings, since Jade smashed the old pair. And speaking of smash, Jade comes out cosplaying as She-Hulk! The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and tonight, we see the difference between 37-0 and 36-1!

Backstage interview with CM Punk and Ace Steel.

The Best in the World is walking Larry as he arrives and Alex Marvez has a question the world wants to know: Is Punk 100% healthy going into this world title match with Jon Moxley? Punk chuckles, and asks Ace if Punk’s ever been 100% going into a fight. Ace confirms, no he has not. Sure, Moxley has an easy target in the left foot. But what Moxley doesn’t know is that he isn’t fighting Punk, he’s fighting Ace. He’s fighting Larry, the firemen, the paramedics, everyone at Wormhole Coffee providing that sweet caffeine so people like the Chicago Teacher of the Year, Nora Flannagan, can get up and do her job.

Moxley is fighting Chicago, the city that works. Mox beat Punk once, but he isn’t doing it twice! Punk may love Chicago and Chicago may love Punk, but will Mox not give an F and just break Punk’s other foot while he’s at it?

AEW World Tag Team Championships: Swerve In Our Glory VS The Acclaimed!

Two great teams are about to collide in Chicago! Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland joined forces, skyrocketed up the ranks and took these titles in a Triple Threat. Anthony Bowens & Max Caster are the winningest tag team and a homegrown AEW product who have been held back by bad luck. The champions challenged their challengers to leave the punchlines at home and bring only punches, but will this be where The Acclaimed finally punch their tickets and get the gold? Or will they have no choice but to #BaskInTheirGlory?

Caster starts up his rap, not caring what Swerve said! “Acclaimed gonna bring the scissors to the paper champions! Y’all’re so boring, man, it’s like I’m taking Ambien! Yo, lemme get a pillow. How you gonna put me in a match against Lizzo? All this talk about whose house? You can call me Daddy cuz I’m tellin’ you to move out! Yo, the belts need an update, we’ll leave you on the floor like the documents in Trump’s place!” Keith & Swerve ignore all this by having their backs to The Acclaimed. But then Bowens gets the mic to shout, “CHIIIIIICAAAGOOO~! The Acclaimed have arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass!!” Billy Gunn does indeed scissor with Bowens.

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and all jokes aside, we see who can get serious and bring the fight!

The teams sort out and Swerve starts against Bowens. They circle, Bowens avoids the leg pick and they reset. Fans sing for Keith, “OH~ Bask in this Glory~!” Bowens and Swerve approach, Bowens avoids the leg pick again and he waistlocks. Swerve fights up, Bowens SLAMS him back down.

Swerve shifts to get the leg again but Bowens rolls and stands up. Bowens wrenches out, whips Swerve to ropes, then hurdles to drop. Swerve jumps over and has the leg again to turn!

Tag to Caster and fans fire up.

Caster and Keith stare down and Billy coaches Caster on. Keith and Caster tie up, Caster waistlocks and headlocks. Keith powers up but Caster grinds the hold. Keith powers out, they ram shoulders but Keith doesn’t budge. Keith shoves Caster but Caster rebounds to ram Keith! Now Keith moves, and that just annoys him. Caster runs, Keith hip tosses, but Caster handsprings through it! Caster taunts Keith with a shimmy and shake, and Keith applauds for it all. Then he runs in! Things speed up, Keith rolls over the drop down, then hurdles! Caster hurdles, stops himself with the ropes, and fans fire up! Billy applauds that one now.

Fans chant for Keith, Caster swings but Keith blocks! Caster tries to get around but Keith clinches. Caster fires off hands and a dropkick! Keith comes back to TOSS Caster to the corner!

Backstage interview with Best Friends and Death Triangle.

Alex Marvez has Orange Cassidy, Trent, Chuck and Danhausen on one side, and Pac, Fenix, Penta and Alex Abrahantes on the other.

And this just in, Tony Khan made it official for this Wednesday Night Dynamite: Death Triangle VS Best Friends in a Trios Match! And Marvez notes, the Lucha Brothers quite literally got robbed in the Casino Ladder Match. Fenix says yes, but it doesn’t matter. Pac says “Confrontation? This was no confrontation.

Best Friends put their hands in, and they just go with, “GO!” Will Cassidy, Trent & Chuck be able to take down The Death Triangle and earn Cassidy that All-Atlantic Championship opportunity? Or will The Bastard & The Lucha Brothers win and focus on more important things?

They go forearm for forearm, faster and faster! It’s a hockey scrum until Malakai KICKS the leg! But Sting trips Malakai and steps through! SCORPION DEATHLOCK!! Malakai endures and is bleeding from his eye?!

Buddy runs in and BOOTS Sting, but Sting stays up! Brody gets in and CLUBS Sting, but Sting stays up! DOUBLE BOOTS makes Sting sit, but he stands back up! Malakai turns things around, KNEEBAR!! Brody drags Darby up just to DECK him! Miro gets in to drag Malakai to the apron! Buddy PENALTY KICKS Miro! Brody and Buddy coordinate with Malakai, Malakai tags Brody. The House drags Sting up to double suplex for Brody, but Sting slips off Brody’s shoulder! Sting shoves Brody into Buddy and Malakai and they all go down! Tag to Darby, he goes up top as Sting gets Brody! SCORPION DEATH DROP to the COFFIN DROP!! Cover, Buddy breaks it in time!

Fans fire up and Buddy CHOP BLOCKS Sting! Brody tags Malakai as Miro clotheslines Buddy out! Miro MACHKA KICKS Brody off the apron and into the railing! Miro fires up, goes out and around the way, but Buddy uses Sting’s baseball bat to CRACK Miro in the ribs! Miro crashes into the steel steps on the way down! Buddy hides the evidence and gets back in the ring. Darby gets Buddy with the THROWBACK STUNNER! Then he DIVES to take Buddy out at the ramp! Darby clutches his arm, the ref goes out to check him, and Malakai stalks behind Sting! Sting turns around, into the BLACK- MIST FROM STING?!?

Malakai flails and swings blindly, and Darby returns to trip Malakai up! Figure four, LAST SUPPER CRADLE! RELENTLESS ICONS WIN!

Winners: Miro, Darby Allin & Sting, by pinfall

The Dark Father was defeated by one of his own tricks! Will this be the end of the story between the House of Black and the icons? Or is this only over once The Redeemer has slain the Pagans by his own hand?

 

Backstage interview with Daniel Garcia.

Tony Schiavone points out that Garcia did not go out to the ring with the rest of the JAS to celebrate Jericho’s victory. Garcia is interrupted by Jericho himself walking in, because he also wants to know why Garcia did not go out to the ring after Jericho proved he is the greatest pro-wrestler and sports entertainer in the world? Garcia says he never doubted anything Jericho said. But Garcia also said Jericho didn’t need to cheat to win, and yet he did. Jericho let Garcia down because of that. Jericho says that’s fair. He appreciates Garcia’s convictions, but Garcia has let Jericho down, too.

So here is what happens: Garcia has a shot at the ROH Pure Championship this Wednesday on Dynamite. This is perhaps Garcia’s biggest match in his entire career. Jericho knows Garcia will win, but he has to do it without the JAS. They’re not backing him up. Garcia says this is the biggest moment of his career and he wants Jericho there for it. What does Jericho mean he’s not going to support Garcia? Jericho says Garcia made his decision, Jericho just made his. Jericho knows Garcia will beat Wheeler Yuta, but he’ll just have to do it without Jericho. Good luck. Garcia isn’t sure what to make of this, but will he even need Jericho for this?

 

AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley VS CM Punk!

The Heart & Soul of AEW, the Blue Eyed Battler, the Maniac, proved he can be meaner, tougher and better than The Best in the World. But CM Punk vows that because he is the Best in the World, because he’s Chicago born and raised, he doesn’t stay down, he gets back up again and again and again. Moxley won in Cleveland as the hometown hero, will he win now as the away team? Or will Punk be the hometown hero he knows he can be?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see just how “undisputed” Moxley’s reign really is!

Fans are already thunderous, and are dueling between the two men even before the bell. Punk dares Moxley to go for his bad foot but Moxley says that’s too easy. Moxley flips Punk off, then sits down! Punk paces while fans are torn between cheers and jeers. Moxley stands up, he circles with Punk as the fans duel even harder, it starts to sound like “CM MOX!” Punk rushes Mox and clinches but Moxley puts him in the corner. Punk and Moxley turn things around while throwing some scrappy shots but the ref wants them to break. Punk clinches and throws knees instead, backing Moxley down to an adjacent corner.

Punk CHOPS, CHOPS, and CHOPS, over and over! Moxley turns it around to fire off forearms! Fans are torn again but the ref has to back Moxley down. Moxley is all fired up, but Punk ROUNDHOUSES with the bad foot! It holds up, and Punk SHINING WIZARDS in the corner! Punk whips corner to corner to SHINING WIZARD again! And then short arm LARIAT! And HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Fans fire up, Punk brings Moxley up and says it’s night-night! Fireman’s carry, GO TO SLEEP!!! Cover, TWO!?! Moxley survives and Punk can’t help but smirk. Moxley flops out of the ring and staggers around while the fans are thunderous for Punk!

Punk runs and DIVES, direct hit and Moxley goes into the crowd! Punk stands Moxley up to ROCK him with a right, then another! Punk then pursues Moxley into the crowd and fires off on him! Fans love getting even closer to the action than usual, and Punk brawls with Moxley near the bleachers! Punk JABS and then SMACKS Punk off the guard rail! Moxley wobbles, Chicago is rabid, and Punk CLUBS Moxley back towards ringside! Punk stalks Moxley, fires off more hands, then pushes Moxley over the railing! Punk whips Moxley into steel steps! The ref reprimands but Punk shows off with push-ups!

Fans duel, even with this being Chicago. Punk enjoys it all the same, and he drags Moxley up to scrape laces on his face! Punk fireman’s carries, but Moxley slips off and POSTS Punk! Fans boo but Moxley gets away into the ring. Moxley checks his face, he isn’t bleeding, but Punk is! Fans duel while the ref checks on Punk. Moxley steadies himself, he sees Punk is bloody, and the shark goes right for him! Moxley throws forearms while fans duel! Moxley punches away on the wound, grinds his forearms in, and even throws elbows! Moxley leaves Punk behind, showing the blood on his hands. Moxley tastes Punk’s blood!

Punk sits up and has a crimson mask already! Fans tell Moxley, “You Suck F***!” Moxley BOOTS Punk, SMACKS him off the steps, and then BOOTS him again! Punk blinks through his own blood as Moxley gets in the ring. Fans boo Moxley shouting out Cleveland, but somehow, Punk gets back in the ring. Fans continue to duel as Moxley taunts Punk. Punk eggs Moxley on, then SLAPS him! Moxley BOOTS Punk then eggs him on. Punk SLAPS again, so Moxley BOOTS again! Moxley climbs up the corner and rains down elbows! Then HEADBUTTS! Moxley lets off as the ref counts, and Moxley has Punk’s blood on him like war paint!

Punk CHOPS Moxley, JABS him, fires off haymakers, but Moxley KICKS the leg out! Moxley CHOPS Punk in a corner, CHOPS him again, then digs his forearm into Punk. Moxley whips Punk corner to corner but Punk reverses. Punk SHINING WIZARDS again! But Moxley stops the bulldog to hit a SHIN BREAKER! And a takedown to drop an elbow onto the bad leg! Punk is enduring, suffering, but Moxley pulls on the deep toehold! Fans rally and duel, Punk’s shoulders are down, ONE! Moxley steps on the bloody forehead, then gets the leg. Moxley turns Punk but Punk kicks with the good leg! Moxley gets the good leg to DOUBLE STOMP the gut!

Moxley drags Punk around by his legs, and turns him for a HALF CRAB! Punk endures and the fans duel, boo, and chant hard as ever! Moxley shifts to an STF!! Moxley CLAWS the bloody wound, grinds the crossface, then lets off to have a CALF KILLER!! Punk endures, he CLAWS at Moxley’s eyes! The ref reprimands but Moxley lets Punk go. Punk staggers up, Moxley shoots for the leg! Mox puts Punk’s leg in the ropes, ROCKS him, then SHOTGUNS the bad leg! Moxley drags Punk back out and has the leg again, for a DRAGON SCREW! Then a FIGURE FOUR! Fans “WOO~!” as Punk endures!

Moxley taunts Punk, puts as much pressure as he can on the hold, and Punk’s shoulders are down! TWO, and Moxley flips Punk off! Punk SPITS on Mox then flips him off! Moxley lets Punk go, and gives him a SPIKE PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!!! Punk survives and Moxley is actually amused! Moxley drags Punk to the apron and up to his feet. Moxley reels Punk in, but Punk resists! Punk wrenches out to WRING the arm into the apron! Moxley clutches his arm while Punk is down on the floor. Punk drags himself up while the fans continue to duel as loud as ever! Punk gets in, he and Mox are in opposite corners, but Moxley runs in!

Moxley endures as Punk cranks on the bad arm! Moxley fights up, and he BITES the bloody forehead! Moxley then turns things around, DRAGON STOMPS!! The fans are torn as Moxley slashes his throat. Mox stands Punk up but Punk ducks the lariat to CALF KICK! Both men are down but Moxley is up first. Punk still scoops and SLAMS Moxley down! Punk hurries to a corner and drags himself up the ropes!

Fans are dueling, booing, cheering, and Punk aims for the MACHO ELBOW into the body scissors!! REAR NAKED CHOKE!! Punk flails but Mox shifts to lean on the hold! Punk fights to his feet and he puts Moxley on ropes. Punk then arm-drags free to the ARMBAR! Moxley clasps hands, Punk CLUBS away, but Moxley turns and rolls to the BULLY CHOKE!!

Moxley lets go at 4, to then GERMAN SUPLEX! Moxley flips off Chicago!

Punk sits up, springs up, and ROUNDHOUSES! Moxley wobbles, but he comes back with the KING KONG LARIAT! Fans are thunderous again while both men are down! The standing count begins, fans still chant for Punk and he sits up. The crimson mask is complete as he and Mox stand. Punk fakes a haymaker, fireman’s carries, but Moxley slips off! Punk fights off the underhooks to ROLLING ELBOW! Moxley ROCKS Punk back! Punk ROCKS Moxley, so Moxley JABS! Punk JABS! And JABS! Mox JABS, it’s a boxing match until Mox KICKS the leg!

Cover, Punk wins!!!

Winner: CM Punk, by pinfall (NEW AEW World Champion)

Bad foot, bloody face, but the heart and soul of Chicago behind him, Punk is once again the Best in the World! The belt is back on his shoulder, but then the lights go out!? Fans are losing their minds! Wait, audio plays! Is this a voicemail? “So, it’s been a few months now, and your continuous, unexcused, extended absence is hurting the company, and it’s hurting the fans. And I know you don’t care about the fans at all, but I do. So if you will show up at All Out, I am willing to swallow a very bitter pill for the sake of the fans. I’ll put you in the Casino Ladder Match, I won’t force you to sign an extension, and I will pay you (beep) dollars. But you have to show up at All Out.

“This is my final offer, and you’re not gonna get a better one.” Wait, is this Tony Khan leaving a message for him? Video plays of Punk’s promo from ROH! “The greatest thing the devil ever did was making people believe he didn’t exist!” And we know who once quoted that… “The Devil” from the Casino Ladder Match walks into frame, and takes off the mask. “And I am the Devil himself.” He puts on the scarf!! Fans are losing their minds as M J F heads to the ring!!! Punk cannot believe it, but neither can Chicago! Maxwell Jacob Friedman was the devil who convinced Stokely and his recruits to steal the AEW World Championship opportunity for him!!

MJF has his music cut so that he and Punk can stare down. Punk holds up the belt and dares MJF to do something now. MJF steps a little bit closer, fans are chanting for “M J F! M J F!” but MJF simply motions that he will have the title. MJF then flips off Chicago because as the voicemail just said, he doesn’t care about the fans! He just wants the title and the money! Will MJF make sure this story comes full circle at Full Gear?


My Thoughts:

What a great PPV for AEW, but we can all tell the big thing was the world title story. The Casino Ladder Match was great stuff, but it was really odd that it was mostly faction members and then Dante Martin. Stokely’s stable being mercenaries for MJF in disguise was a bit of an interesting twist. I suppose Stokely’s guys can still be a faction after this, or even MJF’s new Pinnacle or whatever he’ll call it. And we got a badass main event from Moxley and Punk, where of course someone got really bloody, but they also did a great job playing off the bad foot and how Chicago is on Punk’s side (mostly).

The foreshadowing with the devil mask and The Rolling Stones song of course meant MJF would challenge Punk for the world title, and they did a good job with that kayfabe voicemail to frame it all. Thinking about it, Full Gear is a long ways away, but the Casino Ladder Match prize is a future title match. It doesn’t have to be the very next match, so someone could challenge Punk in New York for Grand Slam in a couple weeks, or MJF could use the poker chip now and he faces Punk in New York for his own hometown hero move. Either way, now that MJF is back, things are probably going to rev up with Dynamite nearing its anniversary.

The Zero Hour was awesome stuff, especially how they started the mixed tag title match. But I figured all the champions were going to retain, especially Hook. I do like that Kip showed some character dimensions, but it seems to be the classic “Oh, he’s gone crazy…” I also liked that Pac just outright refuses to accept Cassidy as a challenger, but you know the trios match on Dynamite this week is going to force Pac’s hand. And Ishii VS Kingston II was just badass personified. Their chests ended up so red from all the chops, that was amazing in and of itself. And who knows where we’ll get the tiebreaker, and the winner will depend on if it’s a NJPW or AEW show.

The trios title match was awesome and had all the story beats I expected. As such, I had a feeling The Elite would win. Now, Tony Khan not renewing Bobby Fish’s contract is one thing (a petty thing, according to most sources), but sadly, Kyle O’Reilly’s injury is rather rough, so we aren’t getting Elite VS Undisputed anyway. The Elite will be very fun first champions, and I can’t wait to see who goes after them. And Hangman’s story is going to take another interesting route here, perhaps giving us another take on Sadman Page drinking all the time. Then the Dark Order can waver on the line of being enabling friends and stern friends, trying not to push Hangman away like The Elite did but also trying to make sure Hangman doesn’t go off the rails.

Jade VS Athena was great stuff, but I really wish Jade could at least win clean. How many times has it been that one or more Baddies help her out? And I suppose I’m only saying this because I cover AEW, WWE and even NJPW, but I feel like there are too many Heels who retain titles thanks to distractions and interference. WWE just gave Roman Reigns another cousin sidekick, can’t Jade do better than the Tribal Chief? Meanwhile, we got a much better booked Women’s World Championship Fatal 4, where Britt did show her true colors and more or less betray Hayter. I’ve been wanting Hayter to break off from Britt, and it sounds like so did Chicago, I hope this is that moment.

Meanwhile, hooray for Storm! She was probably gonna beat Rosa, but she definitely deserved to win this title here. She was used great in NXT but horribly by RawDown because dumb old Vince, so at least nerdy weird Tony Khan knows something about respecting her. Britt and Hayter, regardless of if they’re together or separate, can now chase Toni to Full Gear and we can get some great 1v1 matches. Starks VS Hobbs was a very good 1v1 match, but what a great win from Hobbs with the match being rather short. Hobbs can use this momentum to get at the TNT Championship for a great battle with Wardlow.

Wardlow & FTR had a great Six Man with Lethal & MCMG, but of course the Faces won here. They were fighting for the honor of Dax’s daughter, they couldn’t lose to a bunch of bullies! Plus, great for Samoa Joe to use this moment to come back, maybe Joe settles things with Lethal after this. The House of Black VS Miro, Darby & Sting was also a great Six Man, and it was a great twist for Sting to use mist on Malakai. But being it was the mist and the cradle that won, you know this is not over. We will certainly see Miro VS Malakai and we could even get Darby & Sting VS Buddy & Brody all separately for Grand Slam in a couple weeks to finish this off.

We got a lot of surprises in that Jungle Boy VS Christian Cage segment. A good surprise: Jungle Boy IS Jack Perry, “Jungle Boy” is now like “Powerhouse” for Hobbs. A bad surprise: Luchasaurus went back to being Christian’s monster, even after the twist that he was supposedly still on Jack’s side all along. Oh well. But maybe this means it’s Jack Perry VS Luchasaurus at some point, and then we get the real Jack Perry VS Christian Cage match at Full Gear.  Bryan VS Jericho was also great stuff, but of course Jericho cheats to win and that puts things back on Garcia to figure out if he wants to be sports entertainer or pro-wrestler. If Bryan talking to Garcia doesn’t recruit him, maybe having this ROH Pure Championship match with Yuta will.

But honestly, I think match of the night, and outside of the main event, the match Chicago was most into, was the tag title match. Keith & Swerve ended up playing the Heels because they picked on Bowens’ bad leg, and there’s a bit of that “They’re former WWE guys, Acclaimed is homegrown, AEW fans should like Acclaimed more,” but it makes sense in this case. The Acclaimed have fought their way up and got themselves over naturally with personality and promos, and they were underdogs against the massive Keith Lee and the agile and experienced Swerve. In story and given the build, it made sense Keith & Swerve retained, but just imagine if The Acclaimed won. Chicago would’ve exploded even before the main event and closing segments.

My Score: 9.2/10

AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

Like many of us, The Aerial Assassin despise the Wolf of Wrestling for how he disrespected and used Daniel Garcia just to send a message. But also like many, Ospreay at least acknowledges and respects that this form of Maxwell Jacob Friedman is his most dangerous. Will Ospreay be able to put down AEW’s Ultimate Scumbag? Or will even the #BillyGOAT not be on the level of the devil?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who ignites episode 250!

The bell rings and the fans cheer while the two stare down. Ospreay gets the fans even more fired up, and then MJF bails out. The fans boo but MJF just hops the railing. MJF splashes fans with their own water! MJF then lounges on the barriers, offers a fist bump, but the fans just flip him off. So MJF rips a fan’s sign up and throws it back! MJF goes back to the ring, tells fans to shut up, and he approaches Ospreay. Only to dodge and strut, then swivel the hips. The fans boo but Ospreay smirks, this is the MJF he knew he was getting. They tie up, MJF wrenches to hammerlock, but Ospreay headlocks.

MJF powers up to wrench and WRING Ospreay, but Ospreay handsprings through, and copies the strut! Ospreay shows he can swivel hips, too! The fans cheer but MJF sarcastically says Ospreay’s clever. The two tie up, MJF headlocks, but the fans sing, “OSPRAEY~ OSPREAY OSPREAY OSPREAY~!” MJF is annoyed, Ospreay powers up and out, then things speed up. Ospreay hurdles then drops down to trip MJF up! MJF ducks the Hidden Blade to hit a headlock takeover! Ospreay headscissors, MJF kips free, and roles reverse as Ospreay headlocks for the takeover. MJF headscissors but Ospreay kips free.

MJF ducks the Penalty Kick, avoids the standing moonsault, then bobs ‘n’ weaves to avoid Ospreay’s punches and kicks. MJF shoves Ospreay, Ospreay springboards but MJF avoids that, too! MJF runs in, Ospreay dodges to handspring, but MJF gets under! Ospreay superhero lands, and the fans are thunderous while MJF is stunned! The fans cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for making this the opener! MJF is annoyed, but he and Ospreay tie up. MJF says Ospreay pulled hair! The fans boo because of course MJF is lying. MJF and Ospreay reset, tie up, and again MJF claims hair pulling. But then MJF pulls hair!

MJF puts Ospreay on the ropes, the ref counts, and MJF lets off, to take a swing! Ospreay dodges and then LARIATS MJF up and out! The fans fire up and Ospreay builds speed, only for MJF to get away. MJF says not today, but then Ospreay just changes course and he FLIES out onto MJF! The fans fire up and high-five Ospreay before he puts MJF in. Ospreay HOTSHOTS MJF, runs and BOOTS, then he hits as BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Ospreay prepares the elbow and the fans fire up. Ospreay aims but MJF scrambles to the apron. The fans boo, Ospreay storms over, but MJF YANKS Ospreay into buckles!

MJF stomps a mudhole in, drags Ospreay up to whip and WRING him into the corner! Ospreay flounders and MJF soaks up the heat. Then he blows snot at the fans and mocks them! MJF goes back to Ospreay, clamps onto an arm, and the fans rally and duel as Ospreay endures. Ospreay fights up, throws body shots, then forearms. MJF throws Ospreay down by his hair! The fans boo but MJF just soaks it up. MJF says he didn’t do anything. Then he clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Ospreay down. Ospreay fights up to JAWBREAKER free! Ospreay runs but MJF kitchen sink knees! MJF hauls Ospreay up to back suplex, but Ospreay lands out!

Ospreay reels MJF in to back suplex, but MJF lands out! MJF back suplexes, Ospreay lands out, into a STUNNER! Cover, TWO! MJF’s annoyed his Osaka Street Cutter, or perhaps Long Island Street Cutter, didn’t end this, but he storms after Ospreay. Ospreay is on the apron, MJF reels him in, HEAT- NO! Ospreay shoves MJF away, but MJF slingshots Ospreay into another STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and MJF is frustrated. The fans rally for Ospreay as he goes to the apron, but MJF storms over. MJF drags Ospreay in again, tries but Ospreay again denies him the Heatseeker! So MJF tries the slingshot, but Ospreay stops that!

Ospreay GAMANGIRIS MJF away, goes up a corner, and PIP PIP CHEERIO! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Ospreay rises but so does MJF. Ospreay fires haymakers on MJF first, then whips. MJF reverses but Ospreay CLOBBERS him! MJF bails out but Ospreay builds speed! Ospreay handsprings to SASUKE SPECIAL! The fans are thunderous but Ospreay takes a moment to check his ribs and catch his breath. Ospreay storms up on MJF, puts him in the ring, then goes up a corner. The fans fire up for the MOONSAULT, but MJF moves! Ospreay lands out, MOONSAULTS again, but MJF dodges again!

But the STANDING SHOOTING STAR hits! Cover, TWO! So Ospreay goes up and up to SKY TWISTER! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives the onslaught but Ospreay loads up that elbow! “This is Awesome!” as Ospreay aims again. MJF slowly rises, Ospreay runs up, but MJF bails out again! The fans continue to boo but Ospreay PLANCHAS! Down goes MJF and Ospreay high-fives more fans. And then Ospreay confiscates the timekeeper’s table! The fans are thunderous as Ospreay brings the furniture over to ringside. MJF hurries away into the ring now! Ospreay pursues as we see the fear on MJF’s face.

Ospreay CHOPS MJF in the corner! Ospreay stands MJF up to CHOP him again! The fans “WOO~” and Ospreay runs, but MJF pops him up to SUPERKICK him! MJF goes up, but Ospreay avoids the Panama City/Long Island Sunrise, but then MJF knees low! MJF reels Ospreay in but Ospreay powers out. Ospreay whips MJF to the corner, MJF goes up and over, but then MJF’s knee jams! Ospreay grabs that leg but it was a trap! MJF steps over and hits as STUFF PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and both men are down again. The fans rally up while both men stir, and MJF rises first.

MJF shows off that the leg is just fine, then does the Daniel Garcia dance just to mock him. MJF then drops an elbow on Ospreay’s leg. Ospreay CLUBS at MJF but MJF keeps the toehold. Ospreay fishhooks MJF and MJF lets go. Ospreay CHOPS, and CHOPS, then runs, but into a back drop! MJF leans on the ropes while he catches his breath, and the fans rally again. MJF storms back over, KNEES the leg, then smirks. MJF steps through, ties the legs up, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~,” even as MJF SLAPS Ospreay! And SLAPS him! MJF thrashes the hold, but Ospreay endures. Ospreay’s shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up!

Ospreay pries at the leglock, and the fans rally up as he works to turn things over. MJF fights that back, thrashes some more, but Ospreay grits his teeth. The fans rally harder and harder as Ospreay fights his way over, and he turns the hold onto MJF! MJF endures now, reaches out while shouting in pain, and he flails in order to turn things back onto Ospreay! The fans boo but Ospreay endures again. Ospreay drags MJF along, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts but MJF lets go at 4. MJF is frustrated but then he drags Ospreay up and to a corner. MJF CHOPS, takes a moment, then CHOPS again!

MJF wrenches, whips, but Ospreay can’t even make it all the way! MJF smirks while the ref checks Ospreay. Ospreay shakes out the leg, refusing to admit defeat. MJF storms over, stands Ospreay up, and CHOPS! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s back! MJF whips, Ospreay barely makes it to ropes! MJF wants after Ospreay like a shark with blood in the water, but Ospreay sits on the apron. MJF tells off the fans cheering Ospreay, but Ospreay is somehow still in this. So MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s face! The fans boo but MJF soaks it up. Ospreay throws body shots and haymakers! Ospreay CHOPS and MJF wobbles!

Ospreay CHOPS again, MJF flails more. Ospreay snarls, runs, but MJF CHOP BLOCKS the legs! MJF covers, TWO! MJF frowns but he stomps Ospreay’s leg. MJF then stands Ospreay up to CLUB him on the neck!

The ref reprimands and counts, MJF stops at 4. The fans boo but MJF whips. Ospreay ducks ‘n’ dodges, and DOUBLE LARIATS take both men down! The fans fire up again while Ospreay again clutches the leg.

Ospreay rises, but MJF KNEES the knee! Then MJF calls his shot! MJF suplexes, but STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE hits first! MJF wobbles around, Ospreay calls his shot now! Springboard, OSCUTTER!! But MJF flops all the way to ropes! Ospreay has to crawl his way over, and MJF flops to the floor! MJF’s ring awareness is strong but Ospreay pursues. Ospreay drags MJF up to put him in the ring, and then onto the apron. Ospreay uses a corner to go up and APRON OSCUTTER FLOP as MJF steps back! Ospreay writhes, signaling to his arm, and the ref hurries to check. MJF may have gotten lucky here, as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref has Ospreay go around the way but MJF is in pursuit! MJF shows no mercy as he grabs that bad arm, and RAMS Ospreay into steel steps! MJF stands on the steps to soak up all the heat, as well as talk some trash on Ospreay. It’s certainly in the vain of MJF is who AEW needs, not Ospreay. MJF drags Ospreay up and into the ring, then takes his time to taunt fans over the table. He flips the fans off, he isn’t gonna do what they want. MJF then goes back to Ospreay, grabs the bad arm, and he stands on it, to then STOMP it! MJF soaks up more heat as he paces around Ospreay, then clamps onto the arm again.

Ospreay endures the mounted armlock, and he fights to his feet. Now Ospreay pulls hair, but MJF throws Ospreay down by the arm. MJF grinds that shoulder but Ospreay still endures. The fans rally as Ospreay fights, stands up, and throws body shots. Dynamite returns to single picture as Ospreay ROCKS MJF with forearms. Ospreay whips, MJF reverses but Ospreay handsprings, only for MJF to KICK the bad arm! Ospreay clutches the elbow, but MJF hauls him up! Double underhooks, for a SHOULDER BUSTER! And then it’s back to the armlock! Ospreay rolls through, but MJF ducks the roundhouse to pump handle!

MJF adds a half nelson, MADE IN JAPAN! Or perhaps, Made in Long Island? Cover, TWO!! Ospreay knows that move from his rivalry with Shingo Takagi. The fans rally while both men are down again, “This is Awesome!” Ospreay and MJF slowly rise, MJF storms over, and he whips. Ospreay holds ropes to stop that, so MJF CLUBS the arm! MJF makes the pecs dance, whips again, but Ospreay reverses. Ospreay then dodges MJF to handspring and NEURALIZER KICK! Both men are down again and the fans stay fired up! Ospreay sits up first, then both men stand. Ospreay BOOTS MJF’s haymaker to then ENZIGIRI!

MJF wobbles, Ospreay wrenches an arm, and Ospreay CHOPS MJF off his feet! Ospreay drags MJF up to wrench and CHOP him down again! Ospreay stands MJF one more time, to CHOP, CHOP, and- NO, MJF blocks the chop! MJF WRINGS the arm, Ospreay cartwheels through! ENZIGIRI! Torture rack, TOWER HACKER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives and the fans can’t believe it! The fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but there’s still more show that has to happen! MJF crawls to the apron, Ospreay stalks him. MJF flops to the floor, but he’s near that table… Ospreay goes to the floor and brings MJF up.

MJF throat chops Ospreay! MJF runs away into the crowd, but Ospreay pursues! Ospreay fires hands on MJF even as MJF goes up the bleachers. Ospreay grabs MJF, bends him against railing, and offers free shots. A little girl starts punching MJF in the ribs! MJF flips her family off but Ospreay CLUBS away on MJF! Ospreay fist bumps the girl and drags MJF back up. Ospreay ROCKS MJF with a right and follows him down the stairs. Ospreay CHOPS MJF to keep him moving, but MJF takes a detour into the seats. So Ospreay makes MJF take a seat and punches down hands! The fans count along, Ospreay winds up, and hits TEN!

MJF flounders around, Ospreay shows that there’s one guy still wearing an MJF Kangaroo Kick shirt, and then pursues MJF. MJF pokes Ospreay right in the eyes! MJF CLUBS Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks MJF! Ospreay SMACKS MJF off the trash can! The fans fire up and Ospreay DUMPS MJF into the trash can! MJF kicks and flails but Ospreay BOOTS the can! MJF falls out, stumbles away, and Ospreay pursues. They finally return to ringside, and Ospreay refreshes the count that was never happening anyway. Ospreay then drags MJF over to the table, punches him onto it, then goes up the steel steps.

Ospreay then goes up the corner and fans are thunderous already! Ospreay aims, but MJF hurries off the table. The fans boo and Ospreay sighs, but Ospreay hops down to go after MJF. But MJF gut wrenches! Ospreay victory rolls, TWO! MJF has the victory roll, TWO! Ospreay has it, TWO! MJF is up, Ospreay gets around and hops on, POISON-RANA! MJF flounders to a corner, Ospreay runs up, but MJF pops him up! Another SUPERKICK as Ospreay is upside-down! MJF goes up, LONG ISLAND SUNRISE!! Cover, TWO!?! The fans are electric as Ospreay survives another hard shot! Ospreay then goes to the apron and then the floor.

MJF pursues, and we return to the table. MJF puts Ospreay on the table and then goes up the apron. The fans rally as MJF actually climbs the corner. MJF reaches the top, but then Ospreay slips off the table! The fans still boo, they want that table to see some action. MJF hops down, talks smack on Ospreay, then CHOPS him. MJF BITES Ospreay’s arm! The fans boo and tell MJF he’s sick! The ref counts, MJF lets off, but he then ROCKS Ospreay with a haymaker. MJF again mocks Daniel Garcia, even asking if Garcia has feeling in his arms again. MJF then whips Ospreay hard into railing! Ospreay almost ends up in the front row!

MJF makes Ospreay take a seat, and he CLAWS at Ospreay’s face! MJF refreshes the ring count, then runs in at Ospreay, to BOOT Ospreay against railing! MJF hops up to soak up more heat, then he refreshes with some water. That he then splashes at fans. MJF stalks Ospreay back to the table, refreshes the count, and then asks, “Ospreay who?” MJF stands Ospreay up to whip, but Ospreay goes up onto the railing, to OSCUTTER to the floor! The fans fire up again while both men are down! Ospreay clutches the bad leg and the bad arm, but he manages to rise up and put MJF in. Ospreay then swings, but into MJF’s dragon sleeper!

But Ospreay flips things around! The fans cheer, as Ospreay hits CROSS RHODES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives, but Ospreay storms after him in a corner. MJF uses the ref as a shield, then he pokes Ospreay in the eyes! MJF goes up to DOUBLE STOMP the bad arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, hammerlock and lift, DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Ospreay survives and the fans continue to rally behind him. MJF is frustrated but he pursues Ospreay to the apron. MJF drags Ospreay through ropes, and HEAT- NO! Ospreay throws MJF away, MJF’s leg “jams,” and Ospreay takes aim. Ospreay springboards but MJF hits ropes to trip him up!

Ospreay gets stuck up there, MJF goes up to LEAPING LARIAT!! Cover, TWO?!? MJF is beside himself as Ospreay survives again! MJF stalks Ospreay to the apron, drags him up, and gut wrenches! The fans freak out but Ospreay flails and kicks! Ospreay turns things around onto MJF, but MJF KICKS Ospreay! MJF then suplexes, but Ospreay slips free! Ospreay waistlocks but the arm won’t let him lift! So Ospreay SUPERKICKS MJF instead! MJF wobbles, Ospreay reels him in, and tucks him for an APRON STYLES CLASH!!! Both men fall to the floor and Little Rock is losing its collective mind right now!

Ospreay drags MJF up and into the ring, covers, TWO!!!! MJF survives but Ospreay is too tired to be upset. Ospreay just rises up, brings MJF to his feet, and reels him in. Even with one arm, Ospreay hits a LAST RIDE!! Cover, TWO!! MJF reminds us why he was once the longest reigning AEW World Champion while Dynamite goes back to picture in picture.

Ospreay shakes out the arms, but Doc Sampson is called over to check. Doc checks that arm, from lifting to turning. Then Doc checks with Ospreay if he wants to do “that,” and Ospreay says go for it. Doc YANKS Ospreay’s arm to pop it back in place! Ospreay clutches the arm again but it seems that did the trick. Ospreay has the fans fired up again, and he drags MJF up for Kawada Kicks! Ospreay stands over MJF while Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns and Ospreay calls his shot. MJF rises, and he spins Ospreay around to BITE Ospreay’s face! The fans boo, MJF runs, but Ospreay HIDDEN BLADES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives a shot to the face but Ospreay roars! The fans are thunderous as MJF sits up, into a BUZZSAW! MULE KICK! OSC- NO, MJF stops the cutter to gut wrench, and TOMBSTONE!! Cover, TWO?!?! Ospreay survives again and the fans again cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving us this instant classic. MJF snarls, and he uses wrist tape to CHOKE Ospreay! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off, and MJF goes to the corner with Ospreay.

MJF wrenches the bad arm, whips him hard into the corner, and Ospreay falls. The fans boo but MJF grins as he rises up. MJF storms over to Ospreay, stands him up and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! MJF whips again, and harder! Ospreay falls back, MJF flexes, but the fans boo. MJF mocks the United Empire crown then says shove it. MJF drags Ospreay up, whips him corner to corner again, but Ospreay reveres! MJF tumbles up, comes back, and Ospreay CHOPS! And CHOPS! But MJF blocks one again to WRING the arm again! Ospreay writhes, MJF leans on ropes, and then MJF runs in. Ospreay DUMPS MJF out hard!

The fans fire up and Ospreay goes to the apron, only for MJF to YANK him down! MJF puts Ospreay in the ring and says that’s why he’s the smartest wrestler in AEW. But not the wisest as Ospreay DIVING HIDDEN BLADES MJF!! Both men fall to the floor and the fans are thunderous again! Ospreay rises, a ring count starts, and fans count along. We hit 5 of 10, Ospreay puts MJF in at 6. Ospreay goes up the corner, and he BLINDSIDE CHEERIOS! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives again but Ospreay doesn’t get frustrated. Ospreay goes to the apron and climbs up the corner, but MJF again hits ropes! Ospreay lands bad on the corner this time!

MJF climbs up, throws hands, then goes to the very top. SUPER- NO! Ospreay stops the Steiner with one good arm! The fans fire up as he tucks MJF in, for a SUPER STYLES CLASH!! But Ospreay struggles to turn MJF over for the cover! ROPEBREAK!! Ospreay is frustrated now but there’s nothing he can do about that. Ospreay drags MJF up but MJF HOTSHOTS the arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, for an APRON HEATSEEKER!! Ospreay flops to the floor, and MJF looks at the table…! MJF puts Ospreay on the table, hurries back to the corner, and MJF climbs! The fans are going nuts already as MJF SUPER MACHO ELBOWS THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as MJF goes for broke! The ref checks both men, and they’re somehow okay to continue! “This is Awesome!” as we once again go picture in picture.

MJF flounders his way back to ringside and drags himself in. But Champion’s Advantage won’t let him win the title like this! Ospreay is still on the outside as we pass 5 of 10, and he starts to stir around 7. MJF then springs out after Ospreay to get him back in! Seems MJF was just resting, and he shouts about something, probably about how he’s better. MJF stands, paces around, then stomps Ospreay’s legs, then Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns again, and MJF has Ospreay in a Cobra Twist. MJF sneakily grabs the ropes to add on leverage! The ref looks but MJF lets go in time. Ospreay still endures, and MJF digs a knuckle into the ribs. MJF then again sneaks a grab at the ropes! The ref gets closer to catching him but the fans tell on MJF! MJF tells them all to shut up! MJF still grabs for ropes, but the ref sees it this time! MJF says he’s not doing nothing! The ref KICKS that arm! Ospreay then hip tosses free! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! MJF gets up, Ospreay reels him into a package, TWO! Schoolboy, TWO!

A spin and backslide, TWO!! MJF whips, Ospreay swings but MJF gets under! Ospreay leaps, into the POWER BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!!! The fans are electric again as both men are down! The fans sing for Ospreay as he crawls to a corner. MJF sits up then rises up to soak up heat. MJF hits the kangaroo stance?! The fans are torn, surely he isn’t serious. But then MJF runs up, KANGAROO- NO! Ospreay catches MJF!

Ospreay CATAPULTS MJF, but MJF lands safe on the corner! Only for Ospreay to tuck him in and CHEEKY NANDOS! MJF is still stuck so Ospreay goes up after him, for a SUPER POISON RANA! MJF lands out?! MJF shows he can do what Ospreay does and the fans lose their minds! LARIAT in the corner, then MJF hoists Ospreay up top. MJF goes up and up and smirks, gives some thrusts, then SUPER STEINERS! Ospreay lands out!! Ospreay shows MJF how it’s really done and MJF is in disbelief! Both men turn around, MJF swings but Ospreay goes Matrix! MJF returns the favor to dodge Ospreay!

Ospreay blocks a kick but MJF pokes him in the eyes! MJF flips everyone off, but Ospreay HOOK KICKS him! MJF rebounds to ROCK Ospreay! Ospreay rebounds to BOOT MJF! MJF rebounds to ROLLING ELBOW!

Little Rock gives a standing ovation for this AEW Match of the Year contender! MJF crawls to a corner, Ospreay pursues. Ospreay puts MJF up top, ROCKS him, but has to slap some fire into himself. Ospreay goes up top, but MJF fires body shots!

MJF gut wrenches Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks free! Ospreay then slingshots back up, to SUPER OSCUTTER!! And HIDDEN BLADE!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Ospreay can’t believe it and now he’s mad! Ospreay throws off the elbow pad as Little Rock is erupting! MJF sits up, but DUCKS the Hidden Blade! Ospreay tumbles but MJF is also down, too tired to sit back up. Ospreay crawls his way back over, sits MJF up, but MJF SPITS at him!! Ospreay gets REALLY mad now! MJF panics, Ospreay HEADBUTTS him! Ospreay reels MJF in, the fans say do it, and Ospreay says yes! Underhooks, one minute warning, but Ospreay isn’t sure which Storm Attack to use!

Ospreay hauls MJF up, to STORM…! NO, Ospreay stops short of the driver! They fans boo, they want him to end MJF but Ospreay says he’s not like that anymore. Ospreay drags MJF up , MJF SHOVES Ospreay into the ref!! The ref goes down, we’re under 20 seconds! Ospreay hurries over to MJF, DYNAMITE DIAMOND RING PUNCH!!! Cover, MJF WINS!!!!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall (NEW AEW International Champion)

There was literally two seconds left, but MJF pulls it off!! The Wolf of Wrestling proves he’s still just a lowdown dirty snake, but he’s the snake that stole the gold from the #BillyGOAT. Medics help both guys get icepacks, water and oxygen, and MJF rises like a zombie to celebrate himself. The Scumbag may have survived The Aerial Assassin, but will he be ready to go All In against The Bastard?

 

Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

Arkady Aura is with the Sussex County Chicken, as well as Max Caster & Anthony Bowens, and says they asked for this time to talk with each other. Caster says that’s right, because they know Mr. Briscoe is on Team AEW for Blood & Guts. They also know that Team AEW needs a couple more partners, and the only way Mark gets “The Best Wrestler Alive” on his side is when Caster & Bowens join the team together. Plus, The Acclaimed just beat The Bucks a couple weeks ago, they have their number, this is a no brainer! Bowens says that’s right! And they’re also this close to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions once again, they want a piece of The Bucks’ asses!

Plus, when you think AEW, you think The Acclaimed, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So they want in! Mark says that’s right! They had his back a couple weeks ago, so as far as he’s concerned, The Acclaimed is in, baby! But Mark’s not the only man calling the shots on this, if you understand what he’s saying. In steps AEW World Champion, Swerve Strickland. Swerve says listen! They’ve been through their fair share of squabbles, so he knows what Acclaimed is all about. Swerve’s also been in battles with The Briscoes, so he knows Dem Boys are real tough people. There is nobody better to go to war with than those you’ve battled against.

Therefore, “y’all ready to get violent?” The Acclaimed say hell yeah! Hands in, and Mark warns The Elite that Team AEW is coming for them! LET’S GO, BABY!! Bowens & Caster follow Briscoe out, Swerve nods, will this team be ready to rip apart The Elite? Will Swerve be ready for The Rainmaker later on tonight in the main event? Or will Kazuchika Okada rain on Swerve’s House and wash it away?

 

“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

The Redwood introduces to the “seeds, saplings, roots and most importantly, branches,” the Learning Tree, Chris Jericho! The “For The World” Champion is accompanied by “Bad Apple” Bryan Keith as he makes his way out here, waving to Little Rock. The fans boo but Jericho still smiles. “Hi, guys~! Y’know, Little Rock, you need to take a few lessons from The Learning Tree. This city is such a high-crime, violent city, 1,533 crimes for ever 100,000 people, you can do better than that! But let’s talk about Dynamite 250 for AEW, I was on the very first Dynamite, and I’ve been on almost every single one since.

“And the ones that I missed, the Branches were so angry, cards and letters filed in, so I made a promise, I’m never gonna miss another Dynamite again.” The fans boo but Jericho says he’ll be on every one, even until episode 500! It’s like he’s said: When you listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. And when you don’t, people get hurt, dammit! This isn’t right! Jericho is begging us all to listen to him! Look to those who haven’t. Shibata’s arm, Hook getting that fireball to his face, that’s horrible. And then Samoa Joe is literally driven through a wall because he wasn’t listening to The Learning Tree!

Jericho is begging us, this has to stop! People are getting hurt! At this point, everyone should realize they need to listen to Jericho. Surely everyone knows the teachings of Jericho are so important. Who would be crazy enough not to listen? Who would be psychotic enough not to use the teachings of Jericho? Who would be maniacal enough to- IS THAT MINORU SUZUKI!? Jericho is very worried seeing the Meanest Man in the World returning here to AEW! Suzuki has a paper in his hands, but what could it be? Suzuki goes to the ring and fans get fired up. Suzuki waits, and he steps in at “KAZE NI NARE~!”

Suzuki stares Jericho down while the fans cheer him on. Suzuki looks at the FTW Championship, then he snatches Jericho’s mic. “Next week…” Suzuki holds up the paper, Keith snatches it, and Keith reads it for Jericho. This is an official order from AEW management. The Redwood AND Bad Apple are banned from ringside for Jericho VS Suzuki, an FTW Championship match! Suzuki then HEADBUTTS Jericho down! Bill goes to help Jericho and Keith backs up. Suzuki grins and waves, “Bye, guys~!” Jericho looks to be fearing for his life now that he knows there is someone crazy enough to ignore his teachings. Will the King of Pancrase cut down The Learning Tree?

 

The Elite speak.

Nicholas asks Matthew and Okada if they heard all that. The Elite heard what The Acclaimed, Mark Briscoe and Swerve Strickland had to say, and it is ridiculous! What pisses them off even more is that The Acclaimed think they’re just gonna become two-time AEW Tag Team Champions. Not on their watch! Matt says what those guys need is a reminder about just who the hecc they are! This is THE Elite, the greatest team in AEW. And after next week, they’ll have all the gold and all the power! Nick points out it won’t be all the gold. Swerve is still AEW World Champion. Well, Matt says after what they do to Swerve, that title might just end up vacated.

Because see, they’re dealing with the most dangerous people in the business. They’re going up against The Young Bucks, the greatest tag team ever. They’re dealing with the Continental Champion, The Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada. They’re dealing with the unpredictable Scapegoat, the TNT Champion, Jack Perry. And Matt’s favorite part: making his return to The Elite, Hangman Adam Page! And oh, in steps the TBS Champion, Mercedes Mone! The CEO says hi to the EVPs, and she thanks them for banning Britt Baker from even being backstage tonight so that she can’t ruin Dynamite 250 for them.

Matt says let’s just say there’s no drama coming from The DMD to the CEO, via the EVPs. Okada whispers something to Matt and Matt asks if Mone will do the dance for them. Oh, her CEO shuffle? Of course! C E O! C E O! Ok, got to go~! Mone heads out, Okada wipes himself down. He claims it’s just really hot back here. Matt & Nick say okay, sure. But will The CEO still be golden like The Elite? Or will she end up the Native Beast’s next meal?

 

AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

Well, as we just heard, there will be no Britt Baker anywhere tonight because that is how bad she got under The CEO’s skin. Mone even made sure this Open Challenge would not allow Britt to answer it, so in steps a different former AEW Women’s World Champion. Will Mone find there are threats all over the AEW roster? Or will she still be making that double champion type bank?

The introductions are made, the teal title is raised, and we see who is truly the Face of TBS!

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally and duel, the two tie up, and Mone tries but she can’t push Nyla back at all! Nyla puts Mone in a corner, Mone goes up the ropes, but the ref counts. Nyla lets off but Mone scuffs her. Nyla is annoyed, but she mocks Mone’s dance. Nyla runs up, Mone leaps over, but then Nyla runs up again. Mone gets around, waistlocks, but Nyla THROWS her away! The fans rally, Nyla storms up but Mone drop toeholds her onto ropes! Mone CLUBS and stomps away on Nyla. Mone drags Nyla up to stomp into a corner, but the ref counts. Mone digs her boots in, but lets off at 4.

Mone backs off to then storm back up and drag Nyla up. Mone talks trash, but Nyla reels her in! Nyla suplexes, and she holds Mone up, does a squat or two, but Mone slips free! Mone CLUBS Nyla, runs, but Nyla scoops her! Nyla stops the tilt-o-whirl, and shouts, “Have you lost your mind?!” Nyla suplexes to hang Mone out to dry! Nyla KNEES Mone, goes to the corner and climbs, and the fans fire up for the GUILLOTINE KNEE DROP! Nyla drags Money to the cover, TWO!! Mone survives and Nyla is frustrated, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla drags Mone up, ELBOWS her down, then she drags Mone into a backbreaker rack across her knee! Mone endures, even as Nyla pushes her down! Mone fights free with kicks, then fires forearms. Nyla ROCKS Mone right back! Nyla then torture racks Mone to thrash her around! Mone endures, slips down, but Nyla blocks the arm-drag! Nyla whips Mone into the corner, then runs in, only for Mone to move! Nyla POSTS herself, then Mone goes to the apron. Mone BOOTS Nyla into the post! Nyla falls back, Mone soaks up the cheers and jeers, then she sits Nyla down. METEORA! Mone drags Nyla to a cover, TWO!

Mone is upset so she rains down fists! The ref reprimands, Mone lets off to swagger around. Mone stalks Nyla, stomps her around, then bumps her off buckles. Mone stands Nyla up for forearm after forearm, then she climbs up to rain down fists! Mone goes to nine, soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Nyla brings Mone off the corner! Mone RANAS Nyla away, hurries to run, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO! Mone is frustrated but Nyla’s a former champion for a reason. Mone drags Nyla up, and clamps on with a COBRA TWIST! Nyla endures, even as Mone puts on the pressure. Mone ELBOWS Nyla in the ribs, but Nyla powers out with a hip toss!

Mone stands, blocks a boot and KNEES Nyla back. Mone runs, slips around, and has a SLEEPER! Dynamite 250 returns to single picture while Nyla starts to fade! The fans rally, Nyla fights up, and she swings Mone around into a facelock! Nyla snap suplexes Money away! The fans fire up while Mone flounders to a corner. Nyla snarls, rises up, and runs in to back body block! And then LARIAT! Mone staggers back up, Nyla runs in at the corner and SPLASHES! Mone sits down, Nyla fires up and Little Rock is with her! CANNONBALL! Nyla drags Mone to a cover, TWO!! Mone survives, showing why she’s been champion all over the world.

Nyla snarls, and she goes up the corner. Mone stands to kick the leg! Nyla falls, Mone goes up and up to VADER BOMB! Nyla sputters, Mone gets moving, BOOT WASH! Mone pushes Nyla, goes up the corner, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Mone can’t believe it! Mone drags Nyla up, turns her, but Nyla’s too big to Gory Especial! Nyla RAMS Mone into the corner, the fans duel, but Nyla puts Mone up top. Nyla then climbs up to have Mone’s arm. But Mone fires elbows on Nyla! Mone adjusts position, and SUPER BULLDOGS! Mone then brings out a glove, all to mock Britt!

Mone puts on her glove, spells out “C! E! O!” RINGS OF SATURN, and then the LOCKJAW!! Nyla BITES Mone’s fingers!! That’s what Mone gets! But then DRIBBLES Nyla’s face off the mat, and puts on the STATEMENT MAKER! Nyla taps, Mone wins!

Winner: Mercedes Mone, by submission (still AEW TBS Champion)

Mone may not be able to do it like The DMD, but she still wins out and holds up both belts. Mone then spots a fan with a sign, “DMD > CEO,” and she snatches that sign! Mone RIPS the sign up, and the fan wearing the Sting mask is upset. That fan pie faces Mone!? Because surprise! It’s BRITT BAKER!! The DMD suck into the show and The CEO is running for her life!! Security surrounds Mone to shield her from Britt! The guards then swarm Britt, and Mone is safe, for now. Will Britt have her Wembley Stadium moment with Mone whether Mone likes it or not?

 

Jack Perry speaks.

The Scapegoat flips a coin, then tells Darby Allin, “You wanted to get my attention? Well, you’ve got it now. All you had to do was ask. Did you really have to go and hurt Brandon Cutler? Maybe what I mean to say is, do you think I give a s*it about Brandon Cutler?” He is standing OVER Brandon! And then THROWS him through a door! Jack SMACKS Brandon off a boiler, then tells Darby to come find Jack tonight. Then Jack will show Darby what real sacrifice looks like. Will The Relentless One get that fight with the TNT Champion after all?

 

Toni Storm is here!

The Leading Lady is back so soon after how brutally Mariah May betrayed her? Wait, no… That’s Mariah May taking her cosplay to a new level. The understudy is now portraying the part of AEW Women’s World Champion as she menacingly makes her way down to the ring. The fans boo the protege for how she did Toni Storm dirty, but Mariah grabs a mic for herself. The fans chant for Toni but Mariah sighs. “Let’s be honest. You all saw it coming. Everybody saw it coming, except Toni Storm.” The fans boo but Mariah says that woman is so desperate for the spotlight, she didn’t realize she was giving it all away.

“The question shouldn’t be ‘why,’ the question should be, ‘Mariah, what took you so long?’ Honestly, I didn’t think it would last this long either. But it was so… easy! And I was having so much fun stringing her along, I just wanted to see how far it would go. But then, I saw Wembley. And I thought, ‘Why take the old horse out back when I can kill it in front of as many people as possible?” The fans boo more but Mariah says she’s been Toni Storm, and now she can be so much more! Fans chant “We Want Toni!” and Mariah smirks. Mariah tells Toni not to worry, she still loves her. In fact, she’s never loved her more than when Toni was on her knees, screaming and crying Mariah’s name. “That was your greatest performance.”

As for Mariah’s greatest performance, that will be at All In! The fans boo more but Mariah says now, AEW is All About Mariah! Mariah then lies back on the mat to revel in it just like Toni would. But will Toni make sure Mariah suffers far worse than what she gave Toni?

 

AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

The Bang Bang Gang returned backstage but they’re asked about being stripped of the Unified World Trios Championships. Juice said hold on, they ain’t been stripped of nothing. Whoever wants these belts will have to pry them out of their cold, dead hands! But then Christopher Daniels and a couple refs appear backstage, and the Fallen Angel knows it isn’t the most popular decision, nor is it fair to the champs, but that’s the rules of AEW. Austin says he isn’t taking these belts! Daniels says it’s either that or they’re suspended and they don’t get a chance to fight for them against The Patriarchy.

Colten says fine, take ’em. Take all nine belts! Daniels gathers them up and Austin tells Christian Cage that they are not scared of a guy with a daddy fetish, some TikTok kid, a stepmom straight outta Brazzers, and a giant lizard! Juice says what will happen is The Collision Cowboys come home, and they come home with their little hardware homies! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make sure Captain Charisma and his “sons” never touch the gold? Or can no one stop The Patriarchy from taking over AEW?

 

Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana VS Kazuchika Okada!

It is a Champion VS Champion showdown to close this milestone episode, but no titles are on the line. However, Blood & Guts is just next week, and each side is looking for momentum. Will Little Rock belong to Swerve’s House? Or will The Rainmaker prove he’s the top champion in AEW?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The two tie up, Okada headlocks for the takeover but Swerve headscissors. Okada kips free, roles reverse, but then Okada headscissors. Swerve kips free, blocks the takeover this time, and he brings Okada up to power out. Okada avoids the hurdle, BOOTS back, then runs. Swerve rolls to trip Okada, then runs. Okada avoids the House Call, waistlocks then ripcords, but Swerve ducks the lariat! Swerve half nelsons but Okada fights out! Swerve arm-drags, Okada headscissors, Swerve kips up, and fans fire up for the stare down!

But will nothing stop Team AEW from destroying this corrupt Elite once and for all?


My Thoughts:

Now this was an awesome episode of Dynamite. They only advertised three matches, and it turns out that’s all we needed. Ospreay VS MJF was made the opener so they could just go off and give us almost an hour of their best stuff. It kinda makes some PPV matches feel lesser now, but hey, a match of the year candidate is still a match of the year candidate, no matter if it’s TV or PPV. MJF winning out surprised me, but he did cheat so that protects Ospreay. I was hoping for Ospreay VS Pac at All In, but I suppose “The Scumbag VS The Bastard” makes for some fun build. And with how much MJF was taunting Garcia, this has to mean Garcia shows up at All In to go after MJF.

TV Time with Jericho was properly short because we can’t actually drag the show to a screeching halt after how awesome Ospreay VS MJF was. As Jericho started listing qualities like “crazy” and “maniacal,” I just felt Suzuki showing up. Suzuki getting his FTW Championship match with Jericho next week is great, but I’m still thinking Jericho retains. Now, while Keith & Bill are banned from ringside, nothing is stopping Hook from showing up. Hook could go after Jericho after he retains, and that sets up Jericho VS Hook for All In. Which would be interesting because that makes it back to back All In shows for Hook and this FTW Championship.

Good promo from The Bang Bang Gang with Daniels, but like, so filler. Who needed to see them hand over the belts? Or rather, why couldn’t they have figured out to do that during Collision? Very good promo from Mariah May where she completes her transformation into Toni Storm’s replacement. She even phrased it “All About Mariah” to nod how this has been All About Eve the movie, in wrestling form. The fans kept going “What?” just cuz she was taking things slowly, which is rude, but I do feel she could’ve been faster about it. She was definitely going for something with her pacing, but maybe she was also just filling for a little more time. Toni will surely have a response next week or something, though.

Very good promo from Acclaimed with Mark Briscoe and Swerve to establish the Acclaimed joining Team AEW, and very good response promo from The Elite to call them out on it. Though, what a weird detail for Okada to be a Mone simp. He’s married for crying out loud! But that aside, Mone is still tangentially a part of The Elite, and she had a very good match with Nyla tonight. Mone of course found the way to win, but I do appreciate Britt gives us a Sting shoutout by wearing the Sting mask before revealing she was here. Mone running scared was pretty funny, and yeah duh, this match is happening at All In.

In relation, very good promo from Jack Perry, even if poor Brandon had to get beat up again. Jack calling Darby out was good foreshadowing for Darby’s own Sting tribute, and I figured last week that Darby Allin was going to be Team AEW for Blood & Guts. Great main event from Swerve VS Okada that The Bucks of course had to “ruin” to save Okada from a legit loss. At the same time, this keeps either champion from owing the other a title match so close to All In. Great brawl to give us the full 5v5, Blood & Guts is going to be some wild stuff, and it can definitely go either with so many champions involved this time. However, as Mark Briscoe is the only one whose rivalry is NOT in Blood & Guts, he probably takes the loss for Team AEW.

My Score: 9.1/10

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!

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?

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?

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender tot he ROH World Championship)

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?

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Ava. The two tie up, Nyla waistlocks but Ava fires elbows. Ava is free, she fires more shots, then winds up to ROCK Nyla! Ava runs, ducks Nyla’s lariat and wrenches, but Nyla stuffs the STO! Nyla choke grips and CHOKE SLAMS Ava! The fans fire up as Nyla storms around. Ava stands up, Nyla SPLASHES her in the corner! Then Nyla whips Ava back in, reels her in, and suplexes Ava high and hard! Nyla rolls through to deadlift and GOURD BUSTER! Ava sits up, into a SUPERKICK! Nyla fires up, reels Ava back in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

Ring rust is not a thing with Nyla Rose, and she barely broke a sweat here. Will The Native Beast make ever women’s champion in AEW and ROH her prey?

 

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

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?

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

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?

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both!

Taven apologizes and says he still doesn’t wanna fight. But then he pokes Kyle in the eyes! Taven says that is why he doesn’t wanna do this. But Cassidy runs in to tilt-o-whirl. Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett talks smack on Cassidy, goes to the ring, but Kyle catches him for a SLEEPER! Bennett JAWBREAKERS free, then waistlocks. Kyle switches, hops on, SLEEPER BACKPACK! Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS! Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

Bennett stays between Cassidy and Kyle, mocks the hands in pockets, then stomps Cassidy. Roddy is having fun now as Bennett whips Cassidy to ropes. Bennett ELBOWS Cassidy down, covers, TWO! Bennett clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Cassidy down. Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, then fires body shots. Bennett ROCKS Cassidy, tags Taven, and The Kingdom mugs Cassidy as Collision returns to single picture. But then Cassidy starts fighting back! The fans fire up as but Taven knees low. The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then whips him to ropes. POP-UP BAYONET! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

BEACH BREAK for Bennett! Cover, TWO!! Bennett survives and Roddy can’t take it! Roddy hurries to ringside but Cassidy tags Kyle. Cassidy and Kyle watch Bennett get up, but Roddy shouts at “KYYYLE~!”

Roddy tells Kyle he can’t do this to their friends! Kyle says Roddy needs to just back off. The ref tells Roddy to stop, but here’s Ishii!! Ishii YANKS Roddy down, he fires off hands! The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

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
