AEW Grand Slam Tournament of Champions, Semifinals: Jon Moxley VS Sammy Guevara!

The Maniac was impassioned about what the AEW World Championship means to him and what it means to the world of wrestling! Will that fire help him go to the finals and get another chance at the gold? Or will the Spanish God screw him over like he did Darby Allin?

The bell rings and the two circle as fans fire up. Moxley storms up on Sammy but Sammy bails out! Fans boo but Sammy just paces around the way. Moxley waits but fans taunt Sammy. Sammy gets in the ring, he ties up with Moxley, and Moxley headlocks for a takeover. Sammy rolls it to a cover, ONE and Moxley holds on tight. Sammy endures but Moxley shifts to get a knuckle lock cover, TWO! Moxley keeps the knuckle locks as Sammy fights up to his feet and they have a test of strength. Moxley backs Sammy down to a corner, then slowly lets off as the ref counts. Moxley swings, Sammy dodges and CHOPS, then fires off forearms!

Fans boo as Sammy stomps a mudhole into Mox then rains down fists. Sammy stomps Moxley more but the ref counts. Sammy lets off to soak up the heat, but Moxley gets up to CLOBBER Sammy! Fans fire up with Moxley and he drags Sammy up into underhooks! Sammy slips out of the Paradigm Shift and he CHOPS Moxley! Moxley eggs Sammy on so Sammy CHOPS again! Moxley CHOPS back, Sammy CHOPS, and Moxley CHOPS back! They CHOP and CHOP and CHOP, Moxley mocks Sammy’s lounging a second, then CHOPS again! Sammy throws forearms and CHOPS but Moxley fires forearms and uppercuts!

Moxley runs, Sammy puts him out and builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit at the ramp! Sammy gets going again and he FLIES this time! Fans boo but Sammy RAMS Moxley into steel steps! Sammy taunts Moxley, digs his head into the steps, then stomps another mudhole in! The ref counts, Sammy lets off and drags Moxley up with double wristlocks! Sammy CURB STOMPS Moxley into the steps! Fans are rallying for Moxley but Sammy stands over him as AEW goes picture in picture.

Sammy stands on the steel steps to soak up the heat, then he drags Moxley up to POST him! Sammy puts Moxley on the timekeeper’s table to rain down fists! Sammy even gets on the table to rain down more shots, and he CHOKES Moxley! But Moxley CHOKES Sammy back! And then TOSSES Sammy over the timekeeper’s table! Moxley drags Sammy up, brings him back around, and he CHOPS Sammy down! Moxley then drags Sammy up to snap suplex to the floor! Moxley refreshes the ring count, drags Sammy up, but Sammy blocks the whip! Sammy kicks low then POSTS Moxley again! Sammy CLOBBERS Moxley into the ring, then covers, TWO!

Sammy keeps on Moxley with a rain of fists! Sammy lets off to soak up the heat and stalk Moxley to ropes. Sammy throws forearms and Moxley staggers. But then Moxley gets around to get a SLEEPER! Sammy RAMS Moxley into a corner! Sammy is free, he CHOPS Moxley again, and Moxley staggers and flops. Moxley goes to the apron and Sammy follows him out there. Dynamite returns to single picture as Sammy drags Moxley up. Moxley fights Sammy’s Gotch lift so Sammy CLUBS him. Moxley HEADBUTTS back! And HEADLOCK DRIVERS on the apron! Fans fire up for that dirty deed, and Moxley gets back in the ring.

Fans count along with the ring count as Sammy flounders. We’re past 5 of 10, Sammy springs up and in at 7! Fans boo but Moxley is amused. Moxley fires up and fans rally behind him. Moxley runs in to clothesline hard! And again! And again! Moxley puts Sammy up top and CHOPS him! Moxley climbs up, CLAWS Sammy’s back, and even some more! The ref reprimands, so Moxley BITES Sammy’s forehead! Moxley then drags Sammy up, for a SUPER BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Moxley crawls to the cover, TWO, but into the KIMURA! Sammy endures the double wristlock, moves around, but Moxley has a TRIANGLE HOLD!

Sammy stacks the hold to a cover, TWO! But into the BOSTON CRAB! But Moxley turns that over to kick Sammy away. Moxley runs into the corner, misses and Sammy RAMS into Moxley! Sammy goes out to ENZIGURI! Then Sammy springboards for the FLYING CUTTER! Cover, TWO!! Moxley is showing the toughness of a world champion and fans fire up! Sammy drags Moxley into the torture rack, but Moxley slips off into a throw and BULLY CHOKE!! Sammy endures, moves around, but Moxley traps him for HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS!! Then Moxley drags Sammy up for the KING KONG- SPANISH FLY!! Cover, TWO!!

Sammy is beside himself but “This is Awesome!” as the standing count starts. Sammy of course stands first, and he drags Moxley into a drop zone. Sammy climbs up, fans boo, but Moxley springs up to CLUB Sammy on the back! Moxley climbs up behind Sammy, for a SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX! Both men are down again and another standing count begins! Wait, here comes Tay Melo AND Anna Jay “A S.” Anna throws her jacket in, the ref has to get that out of the ring, but that allows Tay to slip in and LOW BLOW Moxley!! Tay scurries away, Anna hops off the apron and Sammy cradles Moxley! TWO!!! Moxley survives the screw job!

Fans are thunderous while the JAS is furious! Sammy goes up top, aims at Moxley, SWANTON FLOPS as Moxley moves! Moxley hurries after Sammy for the ghost pin! TWO!! Sammy escapes and TayJay coaches him up. Moxley and Sammy are forehead to forehead, and Sammy fires off forearm after forearm after forearm after forearm! Moxley SLAPS Sammy, SLAPS, and KICKS and SLAPS and ROCKS him with forearms! Sammy JUMP KNEES! SUPERKICKS! And then torture racks, GO TO- NO! Moxley lands out to hit DEATH RIDER!! Cover, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (advances to the finals)

The Jericho Appreciation Society tried another underhanded tactic, but it failed to stop the Blackpool Combat Club’s Blue Eyed Battler! But the question is now, will Moxley be facing the leader of the JAS? Or will he be facing his own teammate in Bryan Danielson?

 

AEW returns as MJF storms out to the ring!

Maxwell Jacob Friedman already wants his music to cut so he can talk. “Albany, if I wanted you to talk, you’d know! So keep your fat mouths shut!” Fans still cheer and jeer as MJF steps through the ropes to say, “Seven days, Jon Moxley. Seven long days, I haven’t slept a week since you and me came toe to toe last week. And do you know why? It’s cuz- SHUT YOUR DAMN MOUTHS! It’s because I saw the look in your eyes, man. You had the look of a man who had no fear, and you have no idea how much that pisses me off. See, you must have me confused with somebody else. You see a podium in this ring? You see an MJF 2020 sign? Nah, you don’t.

“Cuz I’m not the same kid I was the first time you and I crossed paths, Jon. Not by a long shot. Nah, nah, nah. Cuz I ain’t playing a character, Jon, you are. Walking around all tough, Big Bad Jon Moxley. You’re a joke! You’re about as much of a joke as these shmucks! But I read your book, Jon. It was a real good read. I especially love the part where you talked about your childhood. Cuz it turns out, you were raised much the same as all these people here in Albany, New York: UNEDUCATED, POOR, WHITE TRASH SCUMBAG FROM THE STICKS!” Fans cheer, they are apparently proud of that.

And Moxley got bullied, right? Cameraman, get in the corner! MJF says Moxley got beat down, got his bike stolen. “And when stuff like that happens, it forces men to put on a front. And it works, Jon, you built a great character. That’s why these morons chant your name every week!” They can chant all they want, they might buy it, but MJF doesn’t. MJF knows Moxley. Deep down, Moxley’s still that same scared boy from the slums of Cincinnati. The only difference is, now Moxley is old enough to drown that childhood drama in alcohol like a worthless drunk! But MJF gives Moxley credit: He beat the habit.

MJF shouts at a fan, “You shut your mouth, fat boy!!” MJF gives Moxley credit for getting sober. That takes a lot of guts, bravery, etc. Moxley slayed the demons and defeated the disease. But the problem is, MJF’s brain is far more dangerous than a disease! This is not just a message to Moxley, this is a message to Jericho and Bryan: “Bad things happen when people get in MJF’s way.” So Moxley should take that vacation he was planning on and skip Grand Slam. Because if MJF was Moxley, he wouldn’t want to win MJF’s AEW World Championship! “Make no mistake about it, Albany, it’s MY title!”

MJF says when Moxley came back, he told a story about a demon. That demon hung over Moxley like a black cloud. The demon told Moxley everything he earned since leaving the slums, he doesn’t deserve. The demon said he’d take everything away from Moxley: his family, his fame, his fortune. But know this, Moxley. If you do not tread lightly, he will find MJF is that demon!! And MJF is a demon you can’t slay! “Now, Albany, let’s get down to business. Not that that’s something you can understand since you’re all poor. A young group of gentlemen helped me procure my chip in the Casino Ladder Match. All these men all come from different walks of life, and yet they all share the same goals.

“Allow me to introduce to you the first-ever stable on retainer, led by a man who is my best friend, a man who I have known since I was 19 years old, and a man who’s got more talent in his little pinkie than any of you worthless pieces of s*it have. Stokely Hathaway, and The Firm!” Stokely Hathaway leads Ethan Page, Lee Moriarty, Austin & Colten Gunn, and W. Morrissey out to the ring, and MJF has their music cut. Fans taunt the “ASS BOYS!” but Stokely tells Albany that it may not be Sunday, but here’s some gospel. Some time ago, Stokely flew from Orlando, Florida to New York City to meet his best friend and #1 contender to the world title, Maxwell Jacob Friedman.

“This man was disenfranchised and wanted to quit AEW, until I told him, ‘If you quit, you’re gonna give everyone exactly what they want. And now it’s time for you to get what you want.'” So they sat down, prayed and prayed, and found a logical solution: putting everyone in this ring on retainer. They are MJF’s support system while gaining opportunities for themselves. And tonight is one of the rare times you will see them all together, because when MJF doesn’t need them, they go their separate ways. So Hathaway will admit this for the first time on live, national TV: “I’m not a publicist. I’m not a manager. And I damn sure ain’t no assistant.”

Who is he? A friend. A friend who has the network and connections to make anything happen, and some of you will wish they had a friend like him. Everything Hathaway has done since Double or Nothing has been a lie! A hustle! A con! All so Hathaway could “infiltrate” the system. And how did he do that? A little bit of this, a little bit of that. Like kicking it with Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter to watching reruns of Living Single with The House of Black. “There is not one rock that I haven’t unturned. And where I’m from, there’s a phrase, ‘The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice.’ And on one hand, that means love and adoration for our beautiful Black queens. And on the other hand, that means the juicier the gossip, the more power you have.

“And there’s nothing like good old fashioned blackmail! And that’s what makes me wake up in the morning. That is what turns me on. So let’s talk about what everyone wants, and what they’re here for.” Hathaway goes to “Big Deal” Morrissey, and he already knows what he wants. Morrissey wants to do whatever he wants. And since no one here is gonna say it, Hathaway will. “We appreciate you, and I love you.” Hathaway hugs Morrissey! Hathaway moves on to Moriarty, “All praises due to Allah. I told you if you trusted him, he would provide.” Hathaway says it is time for #TYGASTYLE to become a star! And also, bring some honor back to the ROH Pure title!

The Gunns, Austin & Colten- “ASS~ BOYS!” NO! The GUNNS! They are NOT boys, they are men! And they no longer want to walk in the shadow of their broke ass daddy! They want to become AEW World Tag Team Champions, and you may not take them seriously, but you will! And of course, Ethan “All Ego” Page. Fans actually still like him. Hathaway has known Ethan for over ten years, they’ve been up and down the road together. Best friends, bitter enemies, and Hathaway knows Ethan wants to represent his country, his beautiful homeland of Canada, and do something he couldn’t before hanging around “knuckleheads.” Ethan wants the All-Atlantic Championship!

“So there you have it. Ladies and gentlemen, we are The Firm, and when we are around, you only have two options: Either run with us, or run from us.” The Firm has issued their business plan, will business be booming for each and every one of them?

 

Backstage interview with “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry.

JB admits, All Out did not go the way he expected. And before that, the last time he had a match was in June. There is a tall, tall task ahead of JB in confronting Luchasaurus, which is why tonight, he has signed an open contract for a match! It is time to get back into the swing of things!

They’re already mocking JB putting out the challenge. Sonjay says he’s going emphasize the “boy” in “Jungle Boy,” because this boy is throwing out an open challenge for Dynamite.

Satnam still looms over JB while Lethal catches his breath. The ref goes out to back Satnam up and check on JB. JB is still in this somehow, and Lethal goes out to drag JB up. Lethal RAMS JB into the apron, and JB crawls away. Lethal drags JB back up, puts him in the ring, and stalks JB as he crawls more. Lethal soaks up the heat and he stomps JB on the back.

Lethal throws another, but JB throws a CHOP! Lethal CLUBS the back, JB CHOPS! Lethal forearms, JB forearms, they stand as the forearms keep flying!

AEW looks at the training session of Hook and Action Bronson.

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil is getting Bronson ready for their showdown with Matt Menard & Angelo Parker. Bronson says, “You’re looking at New York City right here. Born and raised. Next week, Grand Slam, New York City, Arthur Ashe, Daddy Magic, Angelo. We’re gonna whoop your ass. Straight like that. No more games.” Hook warns them to be ready. Will the JAS regret asking for them to #SendHookAndBronson?

 

Backstage interview with Luigi Primo.

Since New York is known for its pizza, Alex Marvez introduces the premier pizzamaker pro-wrestler! Luigi Primo is flipping that dough and ready to go! But then Ethan Page BOOTS Luigi down! Marvez asks, “What’re you doing?!” “What am I doing? What nobody does around here: take this job serious!” But Danhausen walks in! Is Ethan talking about seriousness? Danhausen just got a big win on AEW Dark last night. Ethan says good, congratulations. This is extremely fitting, by the way. Since Ethan Page’s big goal is to become the King of the Atlantic, he’ll start with the jester of AEW, this Friday on Rampage. Good luck, buddy. Make a joke.

Ethan leaves and Danhausen says they’ll get that jester! Oh wait, did he mean Danhausen? Will the very first stepping stone in All Ego’s rise be the Very Nice, Very Evil Overlord?

 

Darby Allin was at Nitro Circus last Friday.

The Relentless One was at their Coney Island show, and he decided to do a tricycle backflip! He spun out, hit the airbag wall, but he got back up to try again. And the second time was a success!

Matt Hardy speaks.

“Wow! Bravo, Darby! That was insane! Dude, when it comes to doing extreme things, you continue to raise the bar, up the ante, and I respect that. It kind of reminds me of that match you had with my brother some months back. You guys went to the extreme in that match. And y’know, I’ve dabbled into the extreme myself. I’m actually one of the OG members of Team Extreme. And I do respect you, Darby, I know you know that. You’re not only one of my greatest rivals, you’re also one of my greatest partners. But I have refocused here in AEW. And I will scratch and claw my way back to the top. And that’s why I’m challenging you, Darby Allin, to a match this Friday on Rampage.”

Is Hardy going to reboot and return to V1 in order to be number one again? Or will Darby show him that his extreme and Hardy’s extreme are on different levels?

 

“Powerhouse” Will Hobbs VS Matt DiMartino!

Winner: Will Hobbs, by pinfall

And Hobbs gets that money! Hobbs also gets the mic, but fans chant, “We Want Ricky!” Hobbs says, “At All Out, I defeated Ricky Starks. No, no, no, don’t get me wrong, don’t get me wrong. Ricky is tough. I spent 21 months in the trenches with Ricky, grinding. But at All Out, it only took four minutes and 35 seconds for me to beat him. But who’s counting?” Hobbs says now that the chapter is closed on Starks, it is time to open up a new chapter in the Book of Hobbs. And it starts tonight. Wait! RICKY STARKS is walking down the bleachers! Fans fire up as Starks head for ringside and gets past security! He fires off on Hobbs!

Fans fire up and Starks CLOBBERS Hobbs with the mic! Hobbs tumbles out of the ring but he leaves it at that. Starks glares at Hobbs, is he planning on keeping this chapter going?

 

Death Triangle speaks.

Penta says they are The Lucha Brothers, THE BEST tag team. And together, they will ALL be double champions! ANIMO! CERO MIEDO!

Winners: Swerve In Our Glory, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

The tag titles stay in the Limitless House! But wait! Here comes The Acclaimed! Max Caster has the music cut, though, which fans are disappointed in. But Caster still says, “Yo, listen! Swerve, if you ever interrupt my rap again, I’m a beat your ass! So keep doing what you do best, and that’s nut hugging every famous person you know. Get your boy, Keith Lee, roll his ass to New York City, so that next week at Grand Slam, your uncrowned champs, The Acclaimed, can become World Tag Team Champions!” Fans like the sound of that!

Anthony Bowens takes the mic to say, “New York City! Dynamite Grand Slam! The Acclaimed are gonna kick your Drake & Josh looking asses all over that city! Because EVERYONE loves the Acclaimed!! NOW SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS!!” It will be an epic rematch from All Out, will The Acclaimed redeem themselves and take the gold? Or will they once again #SwerveInOurGlory?

 

Backstage interview with The Lucha Brothers.

Alex Marvez wants to hear from Fenix & Penta after that “bump in the road,” but Alex gets them to the locker room. Pac, however, hangs back to confront Marvez on how he phrased it. “Bump in the road?” If Marvez has already forgotten who Death Triangle are, allow him to remind you. “We are the AEW Trios Champions, and me? I’m the inaugural AEW All-Atlantic Champion! First-ever double champion! So put some respect on the name and mind your own business.” But then someone sucker punches Pac! It’s ORANGE CASSIDY! “Double Double Champion, huh? Not for long.” Will Cassidy become the Freshly Squeezed All-Atlantic Champion soon enough?

 

Toni Storm & Athena VS Serena Deeb & Britt Baker w/ Rebel!

The AEW Women’s World Championship is now on #ToniTime, and she’s ready for competition. Now, this was supposed to be Storm & Shida, but Britt Baker “shockingly” beat down Shida backstage before the show began. Storm said that’s fine, because she has another friend who is more than capable of stepping in. The Falling Goddess takes care of her teeth, she doesn’t need a Dentist! Will they expose how helpless Britt is without her Hayter? Or will the Wolf be a suitable substitute as Britt’s sidekick?

The teams sort out and Storm starts against Deeb. They circle, knuckle lock, and Deeb rolls to wrench and wrangle Storm down. Deeb hammerlocks but Storm slips around to hammerlock back. Deeb stands up, snapmares free and chinlocks, but Storm slips right out to wristlock then headlock for a takeover. Deeb headscissors but Storm kips free, so Deeb headlocks for a takeover back.

Deeb GROUND DRAGON SCREWS the leg! Athena crawls to a corner but Deeb grins as she stalks her. Deeb stands Athena up to CHOP her! Deeb gets the bad leg to DRAGON SCREW again! Deeb soaks up the heat while Athena writhes. Tag to Britt and she taunts Storm while standing between her and Athena. Britt stands Athena up, ROCKS her with forearms, then whips her to ropes. But the leg gives out and Athena falls!

Britt laughs at Athena’s pain, kicks at her bad leg, then drags her up. Britt CHOKES Athena against ropes but lets off as the ref counts. Britt ROCKS Athena, whips her again, but again the leg gives out! Athena crawls but Britt keeps her from storm. Britt chinlocks to grind Athena down, then she stands Athena up to ROCK again! BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Britt kicks at Athena then tags in Deeb. Deeb rushes in to CLUB away on Athena’s back. Athena throws forearms but Deeb DECKS her! Deeb steps through on the leg for an INDIAN DEATHLOCK! Athena endures and CHOPS at Deeb! And CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS!

Deeb lets Athena free of the hold and clutches her stinging chest. Deeb grabs the bad leg but Athena ENZIGURIS Deeb as Dynamite returns to single picture! Fans rally as both women crawl, hot tags to Britt and Storm! The Lightning rallies on Britt, BOOTS Deeb, but Britt kicks low! Britt whips but Storm SHOTGUNS! Britt goes to a corner, Storm UPPERCUTS and leg sweeps! Storm goes corner to corner, but Deeb gets Britt outta there! So Storm BOOTS Deeb and hits Britt with a TORNADO DDT to the floor! Fans fire up with Storm and Storm puts Britt back in. Storm drags Britt up, but no satellite as Britt powers out!

Britt runs, and SLINGBLADES Storm down! Britt hurries, but so does Storm, hot tags to Deed and Athena! Athena spins Deeb around to ROCK her! Deeb UPPERCUTS, Athena forearms! Deeb UPPERCUTS, Athena fires off forearm after forearm! Deeb wobbles, Athena runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges to springboard, into an ARMBAR!! Deeb has Athena caught but Athena clasps the hands! Deeb CLUBS the hands but Athena moves around to stack! TWO, and Deeb still has the arm! Athena tries again, TWO, and Athena deadlifts Deeb! But Deeb sunset flips!

Deeb stays up and eggs Athena on! Athena fires off forearms on Deeb, but Britt SUPERKICKS Athena! And SUPERKICKS Storm! The ref reprimands but Deeb jackknife bridges! Athena breaks it with a SENTON! Britt didn’t even realize what happened but sees Athena. Britt throws Athena out then RAMS her into steel steps! Deeb and Storm slowly rise and fans rally up. Deeb drags Storm up, reels her in, tucks the arms, but Storm slips out!

Storm waistlocks but Deeb resists! Rebel distracts the ref and Britt gets a chair! Britt wedges the chair between the ropes, and Deeb switches with Storm to RAM her into the chair! Deeb rolls Storm up, Deeb & Britt win!

Winners: Serena Deeb & Britt Baker, by pinfall

But then Athena CLOBBERS them both! The Fallen Goddess fires off on Britt, fires off on Deeb, and she DECKS Deeb, only for Britt to SUPERKICK her down! Britt runs to CURB STOMP Athena! Britt gets the chair, but here comes JAMIE HAYTER! The Hayter stops Britt from finishing this by taking the chair! But then Hayter JAMS Storm with it! And SMACKS Storm, too! Hayter says she didn’t do that for Britt, she still doesn’t like Storm. But Hayter also warns Britt that her time is coming! Britt keeps trying to apologize, but is it too late for that? As for Deeb, she pinned the AEW World Champion. Is the Professor of Pro-Wrestling about to get her title shot?

 

Mark Sterling, Tony Nese & Josh Woods speak.

Smart Mark says, “First of all, we have a few things to say.” Tony Nese says last week on Dynamite, Wardlow used a “cheap shot” headbutt to gain an advantage over him. And then after the bell, Wardlow tried to powerbomb Nese, and even tried to “kill” Sterling! Thank goodness Josh Woods was there to save them both. That is why this Friday on Rampage, Woods has his ROH World TV Championship match against Samoa Joe. The National Champion, the former ROH Pure Champion, and finally, the future ROH TV Champion, giving AEW and ROH the television recognition they both desperately need. But will the Technical Beast be slain by the Samoan Submission Machine?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Grand Slam!

After the chaotic scene after the match, Toni Storm will defend her Interim AEW Women’s World Championship against Serena Deeb, but she will also defend it against Britt Baker and Athena! It will be another Fatal 4 Way for the interim title! Will this title still be on #ToniTime? Or will Lightning From Down Under fail to strike twice against the Wolf, the Dentist and the Goddess?

Plus, after that sucker Orange Punch, Orange Cassidy finally gets the title match he wants! Will Cassidy take away one of the Bastard’s belts? Or Pac make sure he turns Orange into pulp?

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by submission (advances to the finals)

The American Dragon slays the Lionheart! We’ve got BCC VS BCC in the finals for THE AEW World Championship! William Regal is proud of both men, but he knows next week will be “torturous” since it’ll be teammates facing each other. Speaking of, here comes Moxley! Bryan manages to stand and he walks up to Moxley. Fans are fired up to see this one, and the two shake hands. Will Moxley get his FOURTH AEW World Championship run? Or will Bryan finally return to the top of the mountain?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of Dynamite that also acts as a go-home to next week’s Grand Slam special. Great stuff out of the tournament of champions, with Moxley VS Guevara as an awesome opener and with Jericho VS Bryan as an awesome main event. I figured TayJay would try to help Sammy, and I’m glad they failed to win this for him. Now, the surprise was Jericho losing to Bryan, but at the same time, it had to happen because Jericho won at All Out. Moxley VS Bryan, BCC VS BCC for the title, that is going to be epic. Either way, the BCC will be on top of AEW, so this could go either way.

I like that Jungle Boy is willing to take on anyone while he’s waiting to face Luchasaurus and Christian Cage. JB VS Lethal was great stuff, and it was a great win for JB given Lethal’s resume. I’m sure if JB tries an open challenge again, Luchasaurus will sabotage it, or maybe even accept it. I would think JB wins against Luchasaurus and then we wait for Christian VS JB to finally settle this. Hobbs was of course winning his squash match tonight, but it was even more obvious after seeing his opponent. Starks showing up was great, too, and we’re clearly getting that rematch for Full Gear. I just wonder if Starks will really win that with how strong they can/should push Hobbs.

Being introduced to “The Firm” was a good segment. Hathaway is great on the mic, and I like that he revealed to us that he was indeed ditching The Baddies for his own interests. Ethan makes the first move from that group, ruining Luigi Primo’s AEW television debut, and setting up a match with Danhausen. I would think Ethan will win that to make his point about getting rid of “comedy” wrestlers in AEW. Cassidy getting serious and going after PAC was also a surprise. I wonder if Cassidy wins the All-Atlantic title to then defend it against Ethan. Likewise, I have a feeling that Gunn Club goes after whoever holds the tag titles after next week.

We got an awesome tag title match out of Keith & Swerve VS Lucha Bros, but of course Keith & Swerve retained. Acclaimed had a good promo to call them out, and that rematch from All Out is going to be amazing. Lucha Bros of course can focus on the Trios titles with Pac, regardless if Pac retains against Cassidy. Hangman and Dark Order can try again, Best Friends can try again, and maybe after the suspension from #BrawlOut is served, The Elite can try again. Not to mention any other trio from any other company, like Impact, AAA or NJPW. The possibilities are endless, and that makes for a lot of fun.

Good promos to set up other matches, such as Hardy calling out Darby and Sterling’s stable calling out Samoa Joe. Those matches will be great stuff, but I’m pretty sure Joe wins against Woods. Hardy VS Darby is an interesting move but perhaps this is the adjustment after Malakai Black leaving AEW. An interesting choice but not a bad one. Great stuff from MJF after Moxley’s win, and I’m thinking MJF being obsessed with Moxley means Moxley does win, but it’d be a shame if it were that obvious. Either way, we know MJF wants the title, so he’ll definitely target whoever wins next week.

And great stuff out of the women’s division. We may be only getting one segment a show, if even that, but at least tonight and next week, AEW is maximizing that opportunity. Great tag match, and great win for Deeb and Britt because of how they Heel’d it up. Hayter getting involved was a nice touch, as she maintains an almost Tweener thing now, beating down Storm for herself but putting Britt on notice. And next week, another Fatal 4 for the interim title, that is going to be awesome stuff. I would hope Toni retains, and maybe from there we get a 1v1 feud of Storm and Deeb while Hayter and Britt feud on the side.

My Score: 9/10

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?

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

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

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

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

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

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

 

The House of Black speaks.

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

 

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

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

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

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?

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?

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?

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.

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.

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
