Tony Khan addresses the AEW fans!

“Hi. Thank you for joining us tonight, and welcome to AEW Wednesday Night Dynamite on TBS. Following All Out on PPV this past Sunday night, I have been forced to vacate the AEW World Championship, as well as the AEW World Trios Championships. New world trios champions will be crowned live tonight in our opening contest in a fight between two of the most storied trios in AEW’s history: Orange Cassidy & Best Friends VS The AEW All-Atlantic Champion, PAC, and the Lucha Brothers, the Death Triangle.

“The AEW World Championship is the single most prized title in all of combat sports, and it will be decided in the grandest way possible: The AEW Grand Slam Tournament of Champions. All the entries have been champions somewhere in their careers, and even some in AEW! Chris Jericho the SEVEN-TIME world champion and inaugural AEW World Champion, as well as three-time world champion, Jon Moxley, get byes into the semifinals.

The opening round features three-time TNT Champion, Sammy Guevara, taking on longest reigning TNT Champion, Darby Allin, this Friday for Rampage! And, SIX-TIME world champion Bryan Danielson taking on former AEW World and World Tag Team Champion, Hangman Page, here tonight!! The finals will happen in two weeks, September 21st, at Arthur Ashe Stadium for AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam 2022! Tony Khan promises us a great night of pro-wrestling, and that AEW will be at its very best these next few weeks. He thanks us again, and sends things back to commentary. Just how big will things get for AEW in the wake of All Out?

 

MJF is here!

Buffalo cheers their fellow New Yorker, and he shows his loyalty by wearing a Buffalo Bills Josh Allen jersey! MJF jogs right to the ring, does a bit of a CM Punk crowd lean, then gets in the ring to cut his music. “BUFFALO, NEW YORK! The Devil is back! Now listen up, Buffalo. First thing’s first. Who’s excited to see MJF? Lord knows I am, guys. I love Buffalo, New York. Hell, the greatest quarterback of all time, Josh Allen, is from Buffalo. Now, we’re gonna get down to brass tax a bit here, okay? Last time you guys saw me, I might’ve said some offensive stuff. I’m just being honest. But I think we can all agree…” Fans chant, “You Were Right!” MJF says he was just kidding then!

Everything he said was a joke! He loves AEW! He’ll never leave this place! He gets an “A E DUB!” chant going, and when MJF said the fans were all stupid marks, he didn’t mean it. Because without fans, there would be no MJF! How about a round of applause for yourselves? “Now, it’s about time. I have to address the big, fat, smelly elephant in the room, and no ma’am, I’m not talking about you. I’m just kidding, honey, we’ll meet up after the show. You’re gorgeous.” Fans cheer and MJF makes heart hands. Now, we know the world title has been vacated. Don’t boo! Hold on! There will be a tournament of champions to crown a new champion.

And if there’s one thing we can agree on, MJF knows one guy who deserves that championship. But MJF is working smart, not hard, so he is not gonna get in that tournament. Y’know why? Because he has a chip that guarantees him a championship match any damn time he wants! Fans cheer that. And also, Tony Khan is paying MJF a boatload o’ money~! Fans cheer that, too! Now, listen. Hear him out, guys. Hold on, he only has so much time allotted, shush. If there’s one thing MJF knows to be true, it’s that while you might think we’re in dark times, we’re not. What we need is leadership. And MJF cannot think of another person more trustworthy than MJF!

There was once a wise Jewish man, his name started with an M. When his people were meek, weak and needed help, that man split the sea wide open and walked them to the Promised Land. MJF isn’t telling you he’s Moses, that’d be ridiculous. HE’S BETTER THAN MOSES! Fans cheer for their new leader! MJF is gonna win the title because he is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and he’s better than you, and you know it!! But wait! Here comes the previous champion, and one of the men in the tournament of champions, JON MOXLEY! Moxley enters from the audience side as always, and he gets a mic before getting in the ring.

Mox stares at MJF and fans cheer. “You… You are absolutely full of crap.” MJF says Jonathan thinks MJF isn’t being sincere in Buffalo, in front of all these grotesque, poor lard asses that have quite possibly the worst football team in the history of the United States of America? Off goes the jersey! And he wipes his butt with it! “Josh Allen SUCKS!” But Moxley may be a bit woozy after going to sleep on Sunday, but maybe he has a point. Maybe MJF doesn’t care about AEW. Maybe MJF doesn’t care about the people. And maybe, just maybe, MJF just looks at the world title as nothing more than a bargaining chip that he can use for the bidding war of 2024.

Maybe MJF takes that title with him to a real wrestling company, with real fans and real wrestlers like MJF’s friend and hero, the American Roller Code-ster, Cody Rhodes! Fans boo but MJF tells the “bums” to keep their mouths shut! Maybe, just maybe, MJF gets to work for a real boss, the only Khan in pro-wrestling that’s worth a damn, jolly old Saint Nick! “Because to quote the greatest wrestler of all time, and my personal hero, The Game… ‘That is what’s best for business.'” Mox slaps MJF’s mic down and then says, “This is not the time, and this is not the place. And I am in no mood. You need to leave this ring right now, or I will make you leave.”

Off comes the jacket and fans fire up! MJF unbuttons his shirt as Moxley rolls up his sleeves. Fans fire up for Moxley as MJF struggles with his shirt sleeve. MJF gets the shirt off now, but he just stands there. And then he bails out! Fans boo because MJF is still MJF. Moxley says MJF’s theme music sucks, too. Now, Buffalo, Mox is in no mood. Mox is pissed off, embarrassed, and angry about a great many things. None more so than that he is standing here without the AEW World Championship, the only material possession in the world that really matters to him. But the belt itself is leather and metal and you can buy one online. That belt doesn’t mean anything.

What means something is what the belt represents. It means something to Moxley and to a lot of people. “The AEW World Championship represents passion for this sport, passion for this business. It represents the passion of the guys and girls in the back, and the fans that fill the arenas and watch at home. Those three letters on the AEW World Championship, they represent the heroes during the pandemic, during a time when the world needed heroes. It represents the dream, the vision that we all had when we started this thing years ago. And we wanted to show the world just what wrestling could be!

“The AEW World Championship represents taking the dark and ugly side of this business and letting it die with another generation. The world championship represents the freedom to be as great as you are willing to dare to be! The AEW World Championship means being better than I was the day before. Even if it was just a little bit better, even if nobody notices but me. That world championship represents slaying demons, that world championship represents everything I love about this business!” Fans fire up and cheer Moxley on. Moxley says the fact remains, he lost. And that’s on him, that’s his fault, he made a mistake and got pinned.

Moxley missed the game winning shot. And he was supposed to be on vacation right now until about two days ago. But here’s another chance to take another shot when the game’s on the line. This tournament of champions is one hell of a shot, one hell of a big rock to push to the top of the hill again. Chris Jericho, the greatest of all time. Bryan Danielson, the best pure wrestler to ever step in the ring, a better pure wrestler than Moxley will ever be. Darby Allin, Hangman Page, Sammy Guevara, three dudes all younger than Moxley, faster than Moxley, more naturally gifted than Moxley could ever be. So yeah, that’s a hell of a shot.

But winners always want the ball when the game’s on the line. The ace always wants the ball. And Moxley wants the ball! So yeah, Moxley’s taking the shot. Because this isn’t just time to win, this isn’t just the fourth quarter, this is time to be a legend! The Maniac fires Buffalo up for this already exciting tournament! Will Moxley fight just as hard as he always has to get to the Grand Slam?

 

Vacated AEW World Trios Championships: Best Friends VS Death Triangle!

As epic as All Out was with the trios title tournament finale, it might as well have never happened. These two teams have scores to settle, and they get to do it with gold on the line!

Trent stays up to DOUBLE STOMP Pac down! Fans fire up and the standing count starts. Pac and Trent stir, Trent heads for the corner to tag in Cassidy!

BREAKING NEWS for AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam!

As if there wasn’t already enough, we will see a rematch from All Out! The AEW World Tag Team Champions, Swerve In Our Glory, will defend the titles against The Acclaimed once more! Will that be the time Platinum Max & Anthony Bowens finally strike gold?

 

Backstage interview with The Dark Order.

Tony Schiavone stands with Evil Uno, Preston Vance, John Silver & Alex Reynolds as he notes that injuries kept them from competing for the vacated trios titles. Silver starts speaking, but then Jose the Assistant to La Faccion Ingobernable storms in! He tells everyone to shut up, and he tells Preston Vance that Andrade is making him one last offer. For whatever reason, El Idolo wants Vance to work for him, so here’s the contract. Uno tells Jose that maybe he didn’t understand what they were saying last week. The Dark Order is NOT for sale! Silver says Jose’s last name is “the assistant.” Get outta here!

But in walks Andrade and Rush. They don’t wanna speak with anyone but Vance. No, the only thing Andrade will be speaking to are Johnny’s fists! Rush gets fired up. Silver wants to fight? Yes, he’d love to! Andrade gets Rush to calm down and fall back for now. Will LFI not give up until they get what, and who, they want?

 

AEW shares footage from after All Out’s Women’s World Championship Fatal 4 Way.

Britt Baker tried to talk with Jamie Hayter, but Hayter wasn’t having it after the stunt Britt pulled. Hayter would’ve won the title, and Britt apologizes, but it doesn’t matter. Britt sulks away, did the Doctor just bust up the best friendship she had in AEW?

 

Interim AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm VS Penelope Ford w/ Kip Sabian!

Thunder Rosa got hurt, a Fatal 4 Way was held, and it was the Lightning From Down Under that struck! Gold, that is. But the new champion, interim though she may be, does not rest when there’s work to be done. Storm is going to be a fighting champion, but will she stay spotless while waiting for Rosa’s return? Or will Mrs. Superbad get herself a golden ticket tonight?

The bell rings and Storm circles with Ford. They tie up, Ford hits a headlock and takeover but Storm headscissors. Ford moves around, hops and hops and handsprings free!

Ford ROCKS Storm, whips her to ropes, but Storm runs her over again! Things keep moving, Storm runs Ford again! And then SHOTGUNS her into the corner! Fans fire up and Storm says kiss this! SWEET- NO, Ford avoids the hip attack, she’s smarter than that. But then she gets WRECKED by that dropkick! Fans fire up as Storm goes out, but Ford YANKS her into the steel steps! Ford drags Storm up and puts her in as AEW goes picture in picture.

Ford takes her time returning, then rains down forearms on Storm! Ford lets off and she drags Storm up to bump off buckles. Ford then runs, handsprings and RAMS into Storm at the corner!

Mrs. Superbad put up a fight, but the Lightning From Down Under struck her down! Who will be next to step to Storm?

 

AEW hear from Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker, as well as Hook & Action Bronson.

On Sunday, in a competitive match, Hook won against Cool Hand Ange. They’ll give credit where it’s due, but then Hook also got his just desserts from Daddy Magic! Welcome to the real world, kid! But just as Menard & Parker were handling business, Action Bronson showed up? Bronson tells them to not try any of that coward stuff in their life with his guy. Well if Bronson wants to walk in all willy nilly into “OUR WORLD,” Daddy Magic don’t think so! Not that night, not any night! Bronson does not belong in wrestling!

Bronson says AEW is coming to Queens soon. That’s his backyard. Grand Slam, come see them! Hook may be crazy, but y’all don’t know ’bout Bronson. Menard says if Bronson wants to spit in their faces, he’ll get a taste! What will happen when the Jericho Appreciation Society throw down with the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and the man behind the song?

 

The Acclaimed is here!

Buffalo is so ready to “Yo! Listen!” “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Oh, that wasn’t part of Max Caster’s plan. The AEW World Tag Team Champions interrupt already, and Swerve says he’s sorry. Were they all here to hear more stupid, corny rap jokes from The Acclaimed? “YES! YES! YES!” And they even call Swerve an A-Hole! Well, in that case, Swerve has a joke for them. The Acclaimed as AEW Tag Champions. HAHA! But for real- Billy Gunn cuts “Swervy Boy” off right there. See, he doesn’t know if the fans are listening, but this ain’t Swerve’s House no more! This is Daddy Ass’s House! Fans chant for “DADDY ASS! DADDY ASS!”

And Bowens says, because of all the fans, in two weeks, Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City, it is The Acclaimed VS Swerve In Our Glory, round two! And the uncrowned champs are taking home the gold! Because EVERYONE loves the Acclaimed! Now scissor him, Daddy Ass!! Not quite a mic drop, but Swerve takes off his sunglasses. It was already an epic at All Out, will this time be even more insane between Swerve and the Acclaimed?

 

Backstage interview with The Jericho Appreciation Society.

Specifically, Schiavone is with Chris Jericho, Sammy Guevara, Tay Melo & Anna “Jay A S.” Schiavone says they’re celebrating Jericho’s big win on Sunday. Big? How about a GIGANTIC win over Bryan Danielson. And just look at him! Jericho’s better than ever. Here’s a history lesson: 400 years ago, Ponce De Leon went looking for the Fountain of Youth. He didn’t find it, but in 2022, Corazon De Leon, Lionheart Chris Jericho, found that fountain! He’s drinking it in, maaaan~! That’s why Jericho beat Bryan on Sunday at his own game. Jericho is now the Best Wrestler Ever, the Best Sports Entertainer Ever, the BWEE B’SEE!

What? B WEE! B SEE! Hashtag it, Tony! And that’s another reason why Jericho will beat Bryan again, next week on Dynamite to then go on to Grand Slam and become the world champion for the EIGHTH TIME! Because it is Jericho’s title! AEW is his company! And this is his EFFIN locker room! No one is ever taking that away from Jericho, ever!! EVER. And when it comes to the Jericho Appreciation Society, he’s got two little brothers. One is Spanish God Sammy, who takes on Darby Allin this Friday on Rampage in the Tournament of Champions. Sammy says that’s right! He tells Darby that on Rampage, “your little turtle lovin’ ass is getting beat!”

Jericho says the JAS doesn’t like turtles! And his other little brother is Danny Garcia, who is in the biggest match of his career, in his hometown of Buffalo, New York! He’s against Wheeler Yuta, but Jericho knows Garcia will win, because he believes in Garcia. But because Garcia decided to not join them on Sunday, the JAS leaves Garcia alone. Garcia will win, just without the JAS. Right, Sammy? Oh, sorry, he wasn’t paying attention. Look how sexy they all are! Even Jericho! Look at those abs! Is Jericho writing off Hangman Page already when the tournament’s not even begun? And is Garcia going to be able to do this all on his own?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Wardlow VS Tony Nese w/ Mark Sterling!

The War Dog won alongside his brothers in arms, FTR, against Jay Lethal and the Motor City Machine Guns. But now he sets out on his own again, ready to powerbomb anyone and everyone who’s coming for his gold. Will the Premier Athlete be able to survive the symphony? Or will Wardlow give Nese a powerbomb for every one of his eight abs?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and this is WAR!

Fans chant for “WARD~LOW! WARD~LOW!” but Nese flexes on him. Nese mocks Wardlow’s lesser abs and jigglier pecks, but Wardlow HEADBUTTS Nese with a harder head! And then gives him the wind-up LARIAT! The straps come down, and Wardlow drags Nese up and reels him in! Fans fire up for the POWERBOMB! Sterling is stunned but that’s just the first verse! Fans fire up for it, “ONE MORE TIME!” and Wardlow gives Nese the SECOND! And then right into the THIRD! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall (still AEW TNT Champion)

But wait! Wardlow wants to give an encore to the encore! Sterling gets up on the apron, but Wardlow TOSSES Sterling into the ring! Sterling flounders and begs for mercy! Josh Woods appears and he drags Sterling out of the ring to save him! Wardlow gets a mic to say, “I’ve been hearing a lot on the internet, that Wardlow’s lost it! That the momentum’s gone! Wardlow, he should do this, he should do that. Well let me tell you something! Wardlow is the TNT Champion, and it’s time for me to remind everybody in that locker room, everybody in this business, and all of my fans that have stuck by me since day one, that this is WARDLOW’S WORLD!!”

The War Dog is fired up and ready! Who will step up to him and see whether or not Wardlow’s lost a step?

 

Darby Allin speaks.

“Ever since we both started in this company, we’ve been competing against each other. Darby wins the TNT Championship, Sammy wins the TNT Championship. Darby does something crazy, Sammy does something crazy. But the one thing we haven’t done is become the AEW World Champion. At one time, I would’ve considered you a friend, but now, I don’t think anybody respects you.” Darby says he won’t even have Sting be ringside. If Sammy wants to win the world title fair, then he needs to prove he doesn’t need anyone else, either. Will the Spanish God accept the Relentless One’s challenge to do this truly 1v1?

 

Grand Slam Tournament of Champions, Opening Round: Hangman Page VS Bryan Danielson!

The Cowboy fought hard alongside Silver & Reynolds, but they lost out on the AEW Trios Championships. The American Dragon fought hard against Lionheart Chris Jericho, but lost because of a low blow. Both men want redemption on top of another world championship run, but only one can move on! Who faces The Wizard of AEW in the semifinals?

The vacated belt is on display, so both men get a good look at it as they make their entrances. The bell rings and fans rally up as the two stare down. Buffalo wants “COWBOY SH*T!” but Hangman offers a handshake. Bryan dismisses him, so the two circle. They tie up, Bryan headlocks, but Hangman endures and powers out. Bryan rams shoulders but Hangman stays up. Bryan sighs and they circle again. Bryan calls for the knuckle lock and Hangman obliges. They have a test of strength and are in a deadlock at the center of the ring. Hangman powers Bryan down to his knees, but Bryan fights back up and rolls back.

Bryan reverses the wrench on Hangman, then breaks one knuckle lock to get a wristlock. Hangman rolls, reverses it back and wrenches Bryan now. Bryan rolls, hooks a leg and even gets a chinbar. Hangman slips through to that to wrench Bryan again. Bryan pushes Hangman to a corner, the ref calls the ropebreak and counts, Bryan lets off with a hard pat on the shoulder. Hangman storms up on Bryan and Bryan backs away to bail out of the ring. Fans rally and duel while Bryan cools things off. Hangman stays calm and patient as Bryan takes his time returning. They reset, feel things out, and tie up again.

Bryan headlocks, Hangman endures and powers out. They ram shoulders again but neither falls, so Hangman CHOPS Bryan! Hangman eggs Bryan on so Bryan CHOPS! Hangman CHOPS, Bryan is stinging! But then he picks a leg, turns Hangman over, and hooks the legs up! Bryan grabs the arms, and he then STOMPS the knees! Hangman crawls to a corner but Bryan is on him with CHOPS! And KICKS! CHOP! But Hangman turns it around to CHOP back! And forearm! And CHOP again! Bryan staggers away but he comes back with a CHOP! And a CHOP! And a KICK, KICK, KICK! Hangman sits down but Bryan drags him up to wrench the arm.

Bryan whips corner to corner but Hangman reverses. Hangman runs in but into a BOOT! Bryan goes up, but Hangman DECKS him off the top! Bryan ends up on the apron, Hangman triangle jump LARIATS! Fans fire up as Bryan flops to the floor! Hangman takes a moment to take aim, PLANCHA! But Bryan dodges, hammerlocks the arm and POSTS it! Hangman falls, clutching his shoulder, and AEW goes to break!

AEW returns and Bryan isolates Hangman’s arm to STOMP it! Hangman clutches the elbow but Bryan drags him up to top wristlock and arm-drag Hangman down. Bryan isolates the arm again, to stomp it again! Hangman shakes out the arm but Bryan KICKS him in the back! Hangman writhes but Bryan drags him around to wrench the bad arm. Bryan CHOPS Hangman to a corner, but Hangman CHOPS back! Bryan CHOPS, Hangman CHOPS! But that’s Hangman’s bad arm! Bryan KICKS the bad arm, KICKS him to the corner, then KICKS him more! Bryan whips, Hangman reverses, but Bryan goes up and over.

Bryan keeps moving, he ducks ‘n dodges, but runs into a scoop! FALL AWAY SLAM! Even with one good arm, Bryan is sent tumbling out of the ring! Hangman fires up and fans rally behind him as he kips up! Hangman aims again, PLANCHA! Direct hit this time and down goes Bryan! Hangman drags Bryan up and puts him in the ring, and Bryan goes to a corner. Hangman gets in, runs corner to corner, and he clotheslines! But that’s still the bad arm! Bryan swings, but Hangman spins him and fireman’s carries, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Cover, TWO! Bryan survives, showing the toughness of a six-time world champion!

Fans rally up and duel as both men sit up. Hangman shakes out his arm while Bryan checks his legs. Hangman drags Bryan up to Alabama Lift, but Bryan sunset flips it! High stack, TWO! Bryan is in a corner, Hangman runs in, but Bryan drop toeholds him into buckles! Bryan KICKS Hangman, runs corner to corner and DROPKICKS him! Bryan keeps moving, another DROPKICK! And then Bryan runs again, into a POP-UP- NO, Bryan RANAS the bomb away! BUZZSAW! Cover, TWO! Hangman survives, showing the toughness of a world champion in his own right. Jericho is watching backstage, happy to see Bryan struggling.

Bryan stands up and he waits on Hangman to sit up. Hangman does sit up, and Bryan KICKS him! And KICKS him! And KICKS him! BUZZSAW again! Fans fire up as Bryan goes up the corner! But Hangman trips him up! Hangman throws forearms, Bryan throws them back, but Hangman CHOPS! Bryan throws another forearm but Hangman fires off! Hangman climbs up after Bryan now, brings him up and scoops, SUPER FALL AWAY SLAM!! Cover, TWO!! Hangman just goes right to the apron! He takes aim at Bryan, but Bryan bails out the far side! Bryan knew better, and fans cheer as AEW goes picture in picture.

Hangman is frustrated, but he goes after Bryan on the far side. Hangman drags Bryan up, and whips him into railing! Bryan takes a seat in the corner, and Hangman gets some space. Hangman fires up and runs in, to BOOT Bryan down! Fans fire up and Hangman refreshes the ring count. Hangman brings Bryan back up, puts him back in the ring, and has him on the apron to CHOP! Hangman CHOPS Bryan again, shakes out the arm, and gets back on the apron. Hangman drags Bryan up but Bryan WRINGS the arm into the apron! Hangman writhes and clutches the arm while Bryan drags himself up and into the ring.

Bryan crawls his way over to Hangman and they go forehead to forehead. AEW returns to single picture as both men stand. Bryan CHOPS, Hangman CHOPS, repeat! Hangman even CHOPS through the pain! But Bryan EuroUppers again and again, only for Hangman to catch Bryan into a backslide! TWO, and Bryan GERMAN SUPLEXES! Hangman lands on his feet! POP-UP SIT-OUT POWERBOMB!! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives and fans chant “This is Awesome!” as the standing count starts. Hangman sits up first but Bryan crawls to a corner. Bryan drags himself up the ropes but Hangman stands at 4.

Hangman CHOPS Bryan again! And hoists him up top again. Hangman CHOPS again, but that arm is bugging him. Hangman climbs up to the very top, but Bryan slips out! Bryan trips Hangman up, puts him in a Tree of Woe, and fires off KICK after KICK! Bryan runs corner to corner to SLIDING DROPKICK! Then he sits Hangman up out of the Tree, goes up behind him, and rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Bryan then stands Hangman up, for a SUPER BACK SUPLEX! Hangman lands on his feet?!? ROLLING- NO, Bryan boots it, only for the SOUTHPAW! Cover, TWO!! Bryan survives, and he gets Hangman’s arm!

Bryan has the omoplata and the LEBELL LOCK!! Hangman endures and fans are thunderous! Hangman moves around, reaches out blindly with Bryan’s wrists in his face, and powers out! Hangman has the legs and he CATAPULTS Bryan out! Bryan skins the cat to get back in! Hangman swings, into a underhook! BUTTERFLY SUPLEX into the ARMBAR! Hangman hurries to move around but Bryan just uses that to omoplata and LEBELL LOCK!! Hangman is caught again! Bryan smothers Hangman, pulls him back, but Hangman fights with his legs! Hangman powers through the hold, and he RAMS knees into Bryan!

Fans are torn while both men are down again. Fans hope these guys “FIGHT FOREVER!” but this has to end somehow! These two have had a time limit draw before, will it happen again? Hangman brings Bryan up to LARIAT! But Bryan brushes that off and eggs Hangman on. Hangman LARIATS again! Bryan still stays up and he eggs Hangman on again. Then he swats the lariat to ROLLING ELBOW! But Hangman ROLLING ELBOWS! Bryan ROLLING ELBOWS! Then he ducks Hangman’s elbow, runs in, but into the DEADEYE!!! Cover, TWO!?!? Bryan survives and Hangman can’t believe it!

Fans are thunderous again as Hangman drags Bryan to a drop zone. Hangman goes to a corner, slowly climbs it, and MOONSAULTS but FLOPS! Bryan runs in, BUSAIKU KNEE!!! But it sends Hangman into the corner! Hangman just tumbles out of the ring! Fans are torn again but Bryan just resets and builds speed! Bryan DIVES! But Hangman blocks it! APRON POWERBOMB!! Hangman goes up top, for the ARIHARA MOONSAULT!! Direct hit but Hangman puts Bryan in the ring! Hangman loads up, slingshots, BUCK- NO, Bryan gets around to O’Conner BRIDGE! BRYAN WINS!!!

Winner: Bryan Danielson, by pinfall (advances to the semifinals)

It seems Jericho’s prediction was right! The American Dragon finds a way to win, and now we get an All Out rematch next week! Will Jericho’s seven times beat Bryan’s six? Or will Bryan avenge his loss in Chicago?

 

“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry speaks.

“This was never really about a wrestling match. Christian Cage, the only thing that you’ve done is prolonged the inevitable. So go get your little surgery. And when you are back at 100%, I’m not just gonna beat you. I am going to take years of off your miserable life. And Luchasaurus, it’s funny that you used to carry me down to the ring on your shoulders. Because for three years, I carried your entire career on my back! I busted my ass week in and week out to make us champions, when everyone said you were a liability and a joke. And maybe they were right. Maybe what really happened to me at All Out was that a giant anchor was released from around my ankles.

“Sometimes, you can move on from your past. And sometimes, you have to destroy it.” Will Jack Perry make Luchasaurus pay for the sins of Captain Charisma? And when will Christian return to face the consequences of his actions?

 

AEW returns with Stokely Hathaway and associates on stage.

Lee Moriarty, Ethan Page, W. Morrissey and the Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten, stand with Stokely as he has the mic. “I know, I know, I know. Everyone wants an explanation from ‘the king of ladder matches,’ Stokely Hathaway about what I did at All Out.” He’ll give it to us. All Out was the greatest moment of his career! But wait, staff is telling Stokely to cut, they need to get to the main event. Stokely laughs as he yanks the staff member into the shot. This guy right here is saying they’re low on time and to wrap it up, like Stokely doesn’t work here or something. That’s funny. LISTEN! When Stokely has the mic, you give him the same respect you would your own father! Got it? Good.

Then Stokely DECKS the poor guy! And the Gunn Sons mug him! Ethan talks trash on the staffer, Lee mocks him, and then Ethan DECKS the guy, too! Fans call them all A-Holes, but they don’t care! The Gunn Clubs set the staffer guy up for Morrissey to BOOT down the ramp!! Security rushes out, but will Stokely Hathaway and his minions do what they want when they want?

 

AEW hears from Claudio Castagnoli and Dax Harwood.

The Swiss Superman says the ROH World Championship has always been a workhorse championship. It is defended everywhere around the world, it doesn’t matter. And this time, it means everything. Dax the Ax knows he comes in as the underdog, he’s “just a tag team guy.” But Dax fights every night with his heart, his soul and for his family. Because if Dax loses, that’s Claudio taking money outta the Harwood family bank account, and Dax can’t have that. Claudio hopes Dax is ready, will this one burn down the house on Rampage?

 

ROH Pure Championship: Wheeler Yuta VS Daniel Garcia!

This match happened before, but it was in the Dark so did it really even happen? But that doesn’t take away from how big this match here is tonight! The Decoder won the previous time, will he have the formula to repeat history? Or will the Dragonslayer make Buffalo proud with a hometown victory?

As part of Garcia’s entrance, he has Westside Gun live and in person to throw out some Peace “Fly” God! Buffalo fires up for both WSG and Danny G, then Bobby Cruise makes the introductions. The title is raised, and in this newest battle of BCC VS JAS, we see if a pro-wrestler or a sports entertainer brings this title home!

The judges for this match are Matt Sydal, BJ Whitmer and Jerry Lynn. The Code of Honor is NOT upheld as these two are heated rivals, but fans are thunderous at the bell. Yuta and Garcia tie up and are in a deadlock. They go around, Garcia headlocks but Yuta powers out. Garcia runs Yuta over and then struts a bit. Fans fire up and Garcia waits on Yuta. They go again, Yuta gets a leg and trips Garcia to have a toehold. Fans boo which surprises Yuta, but Garcia chinbars and drags Yuta down to then rear mount! Fans cheer as Garcia eggs Yuta on. Yuta gets up, gets in Garcia’s face and pushes him to a corner.

Garcia pushes back, things get chippy, but they reset. Fans are thunderous for Garcia, he ties up with Yuta and they’re in a deadlock. Yuta puts Garcia in a corner, Garcia puts Yuta in the other corner, but then they go to another corner. They go back to center, the collar ‘n’ elbow is tight, and then they go to ropes and tumble out! Both men get up in a huff and stare down, but they remember the no head strikes rule. The ref tells them to get back in the ring, and they both slide in fast. Fans fire up as this continues and AEW goes picture in picture.

Garcia and Yuta feel out knuckle locks, have a test of strength, and they’re in another deadlock. Garcia starts pushing Yuta back, but he bridges, rises up, and trips Garcia! Knuckle lock cover, TWO as Garcia get an arm up! Yuta puts that down, TWO as the other arm comes up. Yuta shifts to a cording hold and he grinds the arm. Garcia endures, powers Yuta to ropes, but Yuta cranks the arm to hold onto the hold! Garcia fights up to his feet, but Yuta passes him through to wrench back into the cording hold! Garcia still endures, whips Yuta into ropes, and then he holds on! That’s Garcia’s first ropebreak, he has two left.

Yuta lets off slowly, but Garcia uses that to hip toss Yuta up and out of the ring! Yuta tumbles to the floor and fans cheer Garcia. Garcia waits on Yuta, then opens the ropes for him. Yuta goes under, so Garcia stomps away on him! The ref counts, Garcia lets off at 4, and he fires back up. Garcia stands Yuta up to CHOP him! Yuta CHOPS back! Garcia CHOPS! Yuta is stinging but he CHOPS back! Garcia CHOPS, Yuta CHOPS, repeat! Garcia kicks low, snapmares, then PENALTY KCIKS Yuta in the back! Garcia tallies a point for himself then covers, TWO! AEW returns to single picture as Garcia kicks Yuta around.

Garcia runs the ropes, but Yuta ducks the kick! Yuta hits an atomic drop, then ENZIGURIS Garcia to a corner! Yuta runs in to A-LIST LARIAT! Yuta then climbs to FLYING FOREARM! Cover, TWO! Fans rally for Garcia as he checks his teeth. Yuta kicks Garcia around now and fans boo. Garcia is annoyed, Yuta kicks him again, and the CHOPS return! They CHOP and CHOP, but Yuta kicks and snap suplexes! Yuta digs his knee into Garcia then covers, TWO! Yuta stomps Garcia, wrenches his arm and grinds the shoulder but Garcia fights up. Garcia whips Yuta away but Yuta KICKS him! Garcia and Yuta just glare at each other now!

Garcia choke grips, Yuta breaks that, but Garcia SLAPS Yuta! Then Garcia SAIDOS! Yuta goes to a corner, Garcia runs in and clotheslines! Then SAIDOS again! And a LAIRAT! Deep stack, TWO!! Garcia drags Yuta around, has the legs, steps through, but Yuta turns that to a cradle! TWO, Garcia BOOTS Yuta, but Yuta rewinds and shoots around, GERMAN SUPLEX! Yuta holds on, he drags Garcia back up, and GERMAN SUPLEXES again! Garcia clubs at the hands but can’t get free before the GERMAN SUPLEX! Yuta is turning Buffalo into Suplex City as he drags Garcia up again! Fans rally for Garcia and he hooks Yuta’s leg to block!

Garcia standing switches to GERMAN SUPLEX Yuta now! Garcia holds on, and he GERMAN SUPLEXES again! Garcia drags Yuta up and GERMAN SUPLEXES again! Each man has hit three, Garcia wants a fourth! But Yuta resists, switches, and GERMAN SUPLEXES! Fans boo as Yuta still has the waistlock! GERMAN SUPLEX! But Garcia switches back to GERMAN SUPLEX again! And GERMAN SUPLEX again! Both men have five, will Garcia go for  his sixth? Yuta and Garcia switch and switch and switch, Garcia shoves Yuta but Yuta elbows him away! Yuta goes up but Garcia CHOPS his back! Garcia goes up top, to SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX!!

Fans are thunderous while both men are down, and AEW goes picture in picture! The standing count starts, and it climbs to 5 of 10 before either man sits up. Garcia and Yuta get to ropes, drag themselves up at 7, and then Yuta flops to the apron. Garcia goes out to the apron, too, and they meet at the corner. They glare at each other through the ropes, and Yuta junkyard dog headbutts Garcia! And again! Yuta stands, he drags Garcia up and tears off a crossbar cover. Yuta stands on Garcia’s head ON the crossbar!! The ref reprimands, Yuta lets off and raises his hands. Fans surely boo but he soaks up the heat.

Yuta drags Garcia through the ropes, undoes another crossbar cover, and then stands Garcia up. But Garcia YANKS Yuta into the crossbars! Yuta clutches his ribs and Garcia climbs up! Garcia stands on Yuta’s head on the crossbar! The ref counts, Garcia lets off, and then he shifts position. Garcia drags Yuta up the corner, then to the top. Yuta throws body shots but Garcia gives them back! They brawl, Garcia brings Yuta to the very top, and hits a JUMPING SUPERPLEX!! Both men are down as AEW returns to single picture! The standing count is back and the fans rally up! We’re past 5 of 10 again before either stirs.

Yuta and Garcia push up off the mat and get forehead to forehead. Yuta SLAPS Garcia, but Garcia fires a flurry of palm strikes! Yuta SLAPs, Garcia fires another flurry, and now they’re both swinging palm strikes! It’s fast ‘n’ furious and fans are loving this! They stand up, and they SLAP SLAP SLAP all at the same time! Garcia dodges to DECK Yuta! Yuta is down and the standing count is back! Fans are thunderous for Garcia but Yuta sits up at 5 of 10. He still isn’t up, we’re at 8! Yuta flounders up so Garcia trips him! Garcia steps through, DRAGONTAMER!! Jericho is watching backstage and cheering Garcia on!

Yuta crawls, reaches out, Garcia sits deep but Yuta gets the ROPEBREAK! That’s just Yuta’s first and Garcia lets off in frustration. Yuta stands, and he DECKS Garcia with a haymaker! That is Yuta’s warning for using a closed fist! Yuta snarls and he drags Garcia up by his ears! But Garcia leg scissors Yuta down, ties the legs up again, DRAGONTAMER!!! And it’s deeeeeep! Yuta endures, grabs Garcia around the head and has a CROSSFACE! But Garcia fights up and moves around! But Yuta shifts through, SEATBELLT! TWO!!! Garcia escapes but Yuta is on him! Yuta steps through, but Garcia boots him down!

Garcia stands into the DRAGONTAMER!!! And it’s DEEEEP!! Yuta grabs Garcia in a CHANCERY! DUELING SUBMISSIONS!!! But Garcia pumps his hips, and Yuta TAPS!! Garcia wins!!!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission (NEW ROH Pure Champion)

Buffalo explodes because they finally have a champion to get behind! Red ‘n’ black confetti flies as Garcia celebrates his win on his own! But wait! Bryan Danielson walks out now. Is he here to talk with Garcia or with Yuta? Yuta has Bryan stay back, so that he can shake Garcia’s hand! The Code of Honor is upheld and fans love it, but then Bryan snatches the belt from Garcia? Bryan wags his finger, and helps him put it on around his waist! An even bigger show of respect from The American Dragon to the Dragonslayer, but here comes Jericho! Jericho looks stunned! Is he losing Garcia to the pro-wrestling side? Will he take this out on Bryan in their rematch next week?


My Thoughts:

A great episode of AEW here, not just to follow up All Out but to adjust from the craziness that happened after the PPV. I’m not going to worry about explaining what went down with CM Punk and The Elite, but it is clear that the first punishment is they’re all stripped of the titles they won at All Out. The other seems to be suspensions, as there was no sign of The Elite or Punk around tonight at all. At the same time, Punk is injured again (mishap during a tope suicida at All Out), so he was vacating his title and missing time anyway. But we got a great way to keep things going, such as putting the AEW Trios Championships onto the Best Friends VS Death Triangle match. It was a great match, and I’m surprised Death Triangle won. I think this makes Pac the first dual champion in AEW.

Great move with this tournament of former champions, too. We already got an awesome match out of Bryan and Hangman, but between Jericho’s promo and the feud between BCC and JAS, I should’ve known Bryan would win. The JAS also had good promos, both Jericho hyping up the tournament and also Menard & Parker calling out Hook and Action Bronson. Darby had a very good promo reviewing his rivalry with Sammy Guevara, and their match is going to be awesome stuff for Rampage. Either guy could win because they’ll be facing Moxley, and will then have one hell of a match with Moxley in the semifinals.

Speaking of Moxley, we got great stuff out of him and MJF. I really liked MJF’s sarcastic promo where he made sure to check off all the Face clichés like shouting out the town and being inspirational. Moxley also had a very passionate promo to get us all back on AEW’s side, not worrying about Punk and his issues. MJF will of course challenge whoever wins the tournament in a couple weeks, but I can’t be sure how the finals sort out. Bryan VS Jericho probably goes Bryan’s way since Jericho won at All Out. But then is Moxley going to win against Sammy/Darby? Will we end up with BCC VS BCC, Bryan VS Moxley? That’d be pretty wild.

It was also a great move to have titles up and down the card. Wardlow of course beats Nese to retain the TNT title, and he had a great promo to tell the naysayers to eat their words. I hope Wardlow just goes on this insane streak of defenses, facing all sorts of big names in AEW as well as outside AEW. If things are done between Miro and the House of Black (Malakai Black was let go, but because he has both physical and mental health concerns), maybe we can get Redeemer VS Wardog. Or hell, throw Brody and Buddy at Wardlow to see what happens. We also got a good promo out of Dark Order and LFI to escalate their story, I would love to see Vance & Uno VS LFI.

Great promo from Swerve and Acclaimed as part of the announcement that they are having a tag title rematch. Given All Out’s match was awesome, this rematch is going to be badass. We got a good bit from Hayter and Britt from after All Out. I hope this means Hayter is breaking away from Britt. Being Britt’s sidekick has held Hayter back, especially in a promotion where there’s no women’s tag titles. Storm VS Ford was a great title eliminator match, but I figured Storm would win. Ford only just got back, she can’t just jump the line. Depending on how things with Hayter and Britt goes, I would love if we got a proper 1v1 of Storm and Hayter, no interference or distractions.

Good stuff out of Stokely and his stable, playing with the meta of being told to wrap for sake of TV time. They got some good heel heat beating up that rando, and I suppose we’ll have to wait and see how each of Stokely’s guys gets going in the different title hunts. Obviously Gunn Club/Ass Boys are the tag team, and perhaps W. Morrissey is the world title guy. I would think Ethan is the TNT Championship guy while Lee Moriarty is the All-Atlantic Championship guy, and then any combination of three can go for the trios titles. And then we got a good promo vignette from Claudio and Dax, that is going to be a great title match, but I would think Claudio retains.

And what an awesome ROH Pure Championship match for the main event. Great tie-in to the BCC VS JAS story, of course, and Buffalo was so red hot for Garcia, of course he had to win. Though, Garcia would’ve probably won even if this wasn’t in Buffalo, because it’s just the story of Garcia showing his “pro-wrestler” side. But it meant so much more that the fans were 111% behind him, so this was a great moment for Garcia. Bryan and Yuta showing Garcia respect while Jericho is stunned was a great closing moment, too. This also adds to how Bryan probably wins next week, because Jericho is again going to have a faction falling apart around him.

My Score: 9/10

Jon Moxley is here!

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

Six Man Tag: Claudio Castagnoli, Daniel Garcia & ??? VS Lance Archer & The Righteous!

The Swiss Superman and the Dragonslayer are teaming together to take on The Murderhawk Monster, as well as good ol’ Dutch & Vincent, all to avenge what they tried to do to Bryan Danielson & FTR. But who is their third man, brother? It’s HIROSHI TANAHASHI! The Ace of the Universe, the President of NJPW, and one-third of the NEVER Openweight Six Man Champions is here on Collision! Will Ace-sachou be just the trump card Claudio & Garcai need to win big in Sin City?

The trios sort out, the fans lose their minds seeing Tanahashi, but we get Claudio and Dutch starting off. Claudio and Dutch tie up, are in a deadlock, and Claudio powers Dutch back to ropes. The ref counts, Claudio lets off cleanly, but Dutch uppercuts! Dutch headlocks, Claudio powers up and out, but Dutch RAMS him! Claudio RAMS back! Dutch RAMS again! They continue to RAM back and forth, then Dutch kicks low! Dutch scoops and SLAMS then mocks the air guitar! Dutch headlocks, Claudio powers up and out, then drops and hurdles to UPPERCUT! Dutch rebounds, into a scoop! And SLAM! The fans fire up, Claudio runs to DOUBLE STOMP!

The fans fire up, Claudio tags Garcia in. Vinnie gets in but Garcia headlocks. Vinnie powers up and out but Garcia runs him over! Things keep moving, Vinnie CLOBBERS Garcia! Garcia goes to a corner but Vinnie fires off hands! The ref counts, Vinnie lets off, but then Garcia fires back! Garcia stomps a mudhole in, lets off and is all fired up! The fans are with Garcia, he goes back to Vinnie to rain down fists! The fans count all the way to seven, then Garcia- NO, Vinnie slips out, YANKS Garcia down, but Garcia gets around to spin Vinnie! Archer storms in but Tanahashi catches him! We get DOUBLE TWIST ‘N’ SHOUTS!

The fans are thunderous as Tanahashi air guitars and Garcia does his dance! Dutch runs in, Claudio catches him and trips him! The fans fire up, Garcia plays air guitar and Tanahashi does the dance! But then Vinnie CLOBBERS Tanahashi and Archer CLOBBERS Claudio and Garcia! The fans boo but Collision goes picture in picture.

Archer stomps away on Garcia in a corner, lets off as the ref counts, and Vinnie drags Garcia up. Vinnie CHOPS, Archer talks trash on fans, and Vinnie bumps Garcia off buckles. Vinnie drags Garcia up to SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO! Archer sends Tanahashi into railing! Garcia grabs at Vinnie’s beard but Vinnie pushes him. Vinnie puts Garcia in a corner, CHOKES him, but lets off as the ref counts. Dutch tags in, The Righteous mug Garcia, and then Dutch reels Garcia in for a short arm LARIAT! Dutch mockingly air guitars, then he stomps Garcia. Dutch drops an ELBOW, then covers, TWO!

Dutch keeps on Garcia, brings him over and bump shim off buckles. Tag to Archer, but Garcia fires forearms on Archer! Archer DECKS Garcia! Archer stomps away on Garcia, roars and storms around, then taunts Tanahashi with his own air guitar. Archer even mocks Garcia’s dance! Archer storms up on Garcia, CHOKES him on ropes, then whips him into the corner hard! Garcia falls, Archer tags Dutch, and Dutch looms over Garcia.

The following message is on behalf of The Elite.

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS KM!

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

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

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by submission

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

 

Willow Nightingale is here!

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Trent Beretta.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winners: The House of Black, by pinfall

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

 

Adam “Edge” Copeland speaks.

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

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

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

 

AEW shares Toni Storm’s message from after Dynamite.

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

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

 

Mariah May VS Leyla Hirsch!

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

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

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

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

Then she blocks a kick to get around and GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO! Mariah survives and Leyla is stunned!

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

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Double or Nothing!

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

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

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

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

 

AEW takes a closer look at Swerve VS Christian.

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

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

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

 

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

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

The trios sort out but Triple J keeps ’em guessing. Things finally settle down, and it is Bryan starting against Jarrett. They circle, tie up, and Jarrett arm-drags! And arm-drags again! And even a JAPANESE ARM-DRAG! Jarrett does the Fargo Strut, and he tags in Lethal! Bryan keeps cool as he and Lethal circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Lethal knees low.

HOTSHOT for Cash! Satnam drags Cash out to CHOP! Sonjay laughs at Cash, the ref tells Triple J to back off, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Dax is in a corner, Satnam run sin, but Dax dodges! No more relaxing, Jarrett tags in! But so does Bryan! The fans fire up as Bryan fires hands on Jarrett! “YES! YES! YES!” The fans fire up as Bryan KICKS away on Jarrett, “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan climbs up to rain down fists! The fans count all the way to TEN, then Bryan whips corner to corner. Jarrett reverses, Bryan goes up and over and keeps moving! Bryan ducks ‘n’ dodges to LEAPING LARIAT!

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

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

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

Winners: Bryan Danielson & FTR, by pinfall

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
