Tony D’Angelo and Channing Lorenzo are having coffee.
They enjoy a good cup o’ joe, but Tony D says letting Legado go was actually a good move. Stacks says they could’ve gotten more miles out of them, though. And Tony said himself, Elektra Lopez was doing good down at the docks. Tony says one bad fish spoils the tank. The Legados were headed in that direction. When you’re the Don, you gotta know when to keep the line in the water, and when to cut bait. There’s always a bigger fish. Cameron Grimes walks in, and Tony calls him over. Grimes says, “You talkin’ to me?” Uh, yeah. C’mere. See, word is, Grimes is looking for friends. And a man of Grimes’ stature, that’s pretty enticing. Especially after Tony fired Legado.
Fired? Tony “fired” Legado? Yeah, does he have something in his ears? Here, have a biscotti and make Tony an offer. Grimes says he’s not hungry. Grimes walks off and Tony is upset, but will Tony be the one to make Grimes an offer he can’t refuse?

And to honor the women that surrounded that flame, from the howls and lochs of Scotland, all the way to NXT, keep your eyes peeled on the horizon. Because where there’s smoke, there’s Fyre!”
Backstage interview with Wes Lee.
McKenzie says over the past month, the superstars of NXT UK have been dominating the scene in NXT 2.0. But this Tuesday, Wes faces perhaps the most sadistic men from NXT UK in JD McDonagh. How does he prepare for someone with “such bad intentions?” Wes says he isn’t sure you can really prepare for someone like JD. Wes saw JD’s interview with McKenzie last week, and that was… uncomfortable. McKenzie confirms. Wes knows JD doesn’t shoot to kill, he shoots to wound, and he loves taking pleasure in agony. That’s dark. And when the bell rings, JD goes to an even darker placer.
But Wes has had his fair share of dark clouds, and the rain doesn’t scare him. Wes isn’t afraid to venture into the darkness. If JD wants to get weird, then let’s get weird! But Wes promises, JD won’t like the results. Can the Must-See Kid trump the Irish Ace at his own game?

HUMAN HIGHLIGHT REEL!! Cover, Jacy keeps Nikki out! KC SQUARED WIN!
Winners: Kayden Carter & Katana Chance, by pinfall (still NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions)
Gigi & Jacy accomplish their mission! Kayden & Katana are still champions, but solely so Gigi & Jacy can get their revenge down the line! KC Squared get to party all the same, but will they have to worry about Toxic Attraction coming for them next?
The Dyad talk backstage.
They have a bunch more of those smiley face buttons, aka “recognition awards,” and Rip Fowler says Joe Gacy really has taken this Cameron Grimes situation to heart. Jagger Reed just doesn’t understand why Grimes doesn’t want to be part of The Schism. Rip spots Grayson Waller walking by and asks him for a moment of his time. Waller asks if Rip’s right eye is all white. What’s with that tone? The eyes are the window to the soul, and Rip’s soul is pure. Oh, okay. Well, Waller will leave this smiley button here for someone who needs it. Jagger says that’s rather kind. Waller rolls his eyes at The Dyad, but then McKenzie finds him.
McKenzie asks if Waller intentionally raked the eyes of Apollo Crews in their match last week. The medical team says Apollo has a scratched cornea. Waller says honestly, Apollo ruined his talk show! Waller just got Apollo back. But then Waller got a call from his mum. Waller ain’t afraid of no man on this planet, but Mama Waller’s a different story. She gave Waller life, and it’s just the two of them. Mama Waller said she was never more disgusted in him in her life. He went on television and talked about a man’s heritage, wife and kids, then basically tried to blind Apollo to win. Waller was bringing down his family name. For the first time in his life, he was speechless.
And Waller said he’d call her back, but they haven’t spoken since. So she’s probably watching tonight. Cheers, mum, and Waller thought about what you said. And she can kiss his ass!! Waller is the only Waller bringing this name to stardom! Waller doesn’t care about Apollo and his family, Waller’s going home with an absolute dime piece Hooters waitress! No, wait, change it up! A swimsuit model! Either way, Waller doesn’t need friends or family. He just needs the Grayson Waller Effect! Now McKenzie rolls her eyes. Will Waller ever get over himself so that he can finally get over in NXT?
NXT & NXT UK Championships Unification Match: Bron Breakker VS Tyler Bate!
This is it! The Big Booty Nephew is already a two-time champion in NXT, but the Big Strong Boy is both the inaugural and the FINAL NXT UK Champion!

Winner: Bron Breakker, by pinfall (UNDISPUTED NXT Champion)
Bate came close, but Bron found the moment he needed! But there’s no hard feelings here, as Bate personally brings the belts to Bron, and Bron holds up Bate’s hand. We just saw Worlds Collide with incredible force, and now Bron stands atop the mountain! How much farther will Bron raise the bar in NXT?
A great event for NXT, but a mixed bag in the results for me, at least. In the cases of RawDown stars coming back to NXT to challenge for firmly NXT titles, I figured both of those would go NXT’s way. Ricochet VS Melo was an awesome opener, I don’t think it could’ve gone much better outside of Trick being a distraction as usual. But again, Melo was going to win, so it keeps Ricochet from looking weak to have Trick interfere and be why Ricochet lost. Likewise, the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship had a great match, but I should’ve figured Gigi & Jacy would have a part to play like they did just last week. Nikki & Piper lose but in a protected way, and we’ll surely see Gigi & Jacy call KC Squared out this Tuesday.
I didn’t know the men’s tag title match was elimination until they announced it so that was a great surprise. And that really added something to how it all played out. I figured it’d come down to the Creeds and another team, but I feel like there was a missed opportunity in continuity with having Pretty Deadly win. Kemp betrayed Diamond Mine, and perhaps his reasons will have nothing to do with Gallus, but… how awesome would it have been if they made it because Kemp was joining Gallus? Kemp had that great stint in NXT UK where he palled around with Gallus, so imagine if he was a mole the entire time! But instead, Pretty Deadly does at least get more history on their resumes, being the first team to hold the NXT and NXT UK belts separately, and now at the same time.
Good promo from Wes Lee to respond to JD, they’re going to have a really good match Tuesday. They kinda copy-pasted Alba Fyre’s promo from last week, but it’s still good. We got an interesting interaction between Grimes and Tony D’Angelo, and I’m not sure Tony should’ve shrugged off Legado just leaving that easily. But now, is Tony going to help Grimes against Gacy & The Schism? I feel like it should’ve been Edris & Malik after Grimes tried motivating them that one time. But at least we’re getting some twists and turns, maybe something happens where Grimes is feuding with Gacy and Tony and we get a Triple Threat of some kind. The winner can even challenge Melo for the title at the next NXT special episode/event.
Speaking of Gacy & The Schism, we got a fairly funny interaction between The Dyad and Grayson Waller. And then Waller really turns up the Heel heat by insulting his own mom and saying he doesn’t need anyone. Apollo will surely come back for revenge, but I bet there is going to be something about the scratched cornea that affects his future sight powers. The Women’s Championship Triple Threat was great, and while I had hoped it was Blair so that she could piss off both champions, no, it was Mandy who won. A Triple Threat loss doesn’t really hurt Meiko, but after 313 days, from last October to now September, Mandy is starting to get stale. I suppose Alba Fyre could try again 1v1 since it was a Fatal 4 Way Mandy beat her in, but Fyre seems to be taking the long route to the title.
Bron VS Bate was great stuff, of course, and was a great main event. But how could they give Bate that great entrance with the NXT UK retrospective and then still have him lose? Outside of Pretty Deadly, who started in NXT UK then moved to NXT 2.0, this was like that one year where Raw whooped SmackDown at Survivor Series. The results tonight don’t exclude the NXT UK stars coming back and taking the now unified titles from Mandy and Bron, but it stings a bit for me, who watched the UK Championship Tournament in 2017 and never gave up on the UK division.
My Score: 8.7/10

Eddie Kingston speaks.
“Well folks, tonight, it’s me and Big Rock, Rocky Romero, for the NJPW Strong Openweight Championship. Rock, I got nothing but respect for you, dawg, so it’s gonna be an honor and a pleasure to defend this against you. You’re the man that got me into the G1. You’re the man that got me-” Wait, Team Triple J is interrupting. Jay Lethal says that if we’re talking honor and respect, Eddie is standing here with two titles on his shoulders, and that is worth respecting. But Lethal can’t get behind how Eddie is the ROH World Champion. Lethal dedicated his life to that title! His blood, sweat, tears, all to honor a tradition that meant that every person to hold that title would be a pure athlete!
And Eddie, you are no pure athlete! Now as for this NJPW Strong Openweight title, Lethal doesn’t care if Eddie wins it or loses it here tonight. He really doesn’t. But he just cares that Eddie is unfit to be ROH World Champion! Eddie says okay, he’s got Lethal. But excuse his back, he’s gotta go beat up Romero. The Mad King leaves, but will he still have both crowns going into WrestleDream?
AEW shares an interview from after last week’s Collision.
Lexi Nair was with Andrade El Idolo after he was bandaged up from the beating Bullet Club Gold gave him. He almost won, but Juice Robinson interfered. What was that about? Andrade says everyone saw that Andrade had White beat. But the question for Juice is… “Do you have a problem with me? With Andrade El Idolo? Lemme tell you something. See you Saturday in Seattle!” Andrade wants his revenge on Rock Hard, will he get it on WrestleDream Eve?
NJPW Strong Openweight Championship: Eddie Kingston VS Rocky Romero!
The Mad King beat Kenta at NJPW Independence Day back in July to have his first singles title under the NJPW banner. And now he defends it against Azucar as a favor for getting him in the door. Will Rocky repay this favor by taking this title from Eddie? Or will Eddie still head to Seattle as a double champion?
The introductions are made, the NJPW belt is raised, and we see who is truly NJPW Strong!
The bell rings and fans rally up for “EDDIE! EDDIE!” The two circle, Rocky tests things with a kick but Eddie stays back. They feel things out, tie up, and are in a deadlock. Eddie waistlocks, Rocky wrenches, wristlocks, but Eddie clinches. Fans rally, Rocky keeps on the wristlock but Eddie powers through to wrench and wristlock back. Rocky rolls, breaks free and DROPKICKS! Fans are torn as Rocky swaggers, but he and Eddie reset. They feel things out, knuckle lock, and Rocky knees low.

Azucar could not dethrone The Mad King, but he still shows Eddie respect with a handshake and hug. Eddie is still NJWP Strong, but will he have to fight even harder to survive The Wrestler, Katsuyori Shibata?
Wait! That’s Shibata’s music! Shibata is HERE! He goes into the ring and shakes hands with Eddie. These two respect each other, and that means they will give it everything they’ve got! Will Eddie still be a two belt king? Or will Shibata become a TRIPLE CROWN Champion?
Aussie Open speaks.
Mark Davis says he is so tired. So tired of hearing the “top blokes” walk around here the last year, hubris unchecked, lying to the people that they are the best in the world. Kyle Fletcher says that for the last 365 days, everything Aussie Open has done has been to get back to FTR. When FTR beat them a year ago, it broke Fletcher. Fletcher felt like a failure and felt lost. So what he wants more than anything is to make FTR feel that pain. This Sunday, Aussie Open takes the AEW World Tag Team Championships, burns down the legacy of #7StarFTR, and from the ashes, rebuild a new empire that they will stand atop of to proclaim that THEY are the best tag team in the world!
The Aussie Arrow and Dunkzilla are ready to bring down Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler, will they fulfill that WrestleDream?
The Righteous VS Caleb Crush & Gunnar!
Speaking of tag titles, Dutch & Vincent are aimed at the ROH World Tag Team Championships! However, Adam Cole will be out with injury so it’ll just be Maxwell Jacob Friedman meeting them in Seattle. Will this tune-up prove to be more than enough going into that tag title handicap match?
The teams sort out, but then Dutch just CLOBBERS Crush & Gunnar! Fans boo as Dutch says just a few more days and those titles will be theirs! Vincent rains down fists on Crush, then drags him up to UPPERCUT! Vincent bumps Crush off buckles, tags in Dutch, and the Righteous mugs Crush before the BOSS MAN SLAM! Gunnar staggers up but Dutch feeds him to Vinnie’s KNEE! Then Vinnie feeds him to a BOSS MAN SLAM! Tag to Vinnie, fans are torn as the Righteous pace around Crush. Vinnie snaps his fingers, then cravats, AUTUMN SUNSET! Cover, Righteous win!
Winners: The Righteous, by pinfall
A swift and dominant win, these are the two men coming for the tag titles! Will The Righteous purge ROH of the “false friendship” that is the brochachos? Or are even two Righteous men combined not on the level of the Devil?
Ortiz sits alone in a room.
He looks back on his career alongside Mike Santana. They were at the top of their game coming into AEW, but then it ended up going downhill. There’s even audio from Konnan touching on how Ortiz and Santana stopped talking to each other and how Konnan was saddened by that. Ortiz has the footage stop there. What will it take for him to get Santana to talk to him?
Darby Allin speaks.
After replaying what Christian Cage said just last Wednesday on Dynamite, the Relentless One reiterates that he is NOT losing in Seattle, Washington! Will Darby defend home turf against Captain Charisma?
Nick Wayne speaks.
He knows Darby has a lot to say about Christian Cage, and all of that will be part of the Countdown special. But Nick also knows Darby’s actions will speak louder than his words at WrestleDream. And although Darby told Nick not to be there ringside, Nick doesn’t really want to anyway because of what Christian & Luchasaurus are capable of. So, while they let Christian and Darby settle their business, how about Nick and Luchasaurus settle theirs? For months and months, Luchasaurus walked around here while another man held his title. And Luchasaurus followed Christian around like he was some kind of father figure.
And Nick isn’t sure what it is about Christian where he thinks he can even be such a figure to “us Lost Boys,” but Nick had a father. And he told Nick at a young age “to never leave your debts unpaid.” Nick owes Luchasaurus. At Wembley Stadium, Luchasaurus choke slammed Nick onto a skateboard and Nick never forgot it. Nick will repay Luchasaurus this Sunday during Zero Hour. And Nick will even hand Luchasaurus a receipt. Nick brings his own skateboard, will he grind it right into the Right Hand of Destruction?
BREAKING NEWS for Collision!
AEW is going to do it big for WrestleDream Eve as, with Zack Sabre Jr. on commentary, we see an 8 Man Tag! FTR teams with Bryan Danielson & Wheeler Yuta to take on Aussie Open, Ricky Starks & “Big Bill” Morrissey! Plus, Chris Jericho & Kenny Omega test their tag team chemistry against The Gates of Agony! Will The Ocho & The Cleaner survive Toa Liona & Bishop Kaun to take on the Don Callis Family? And Julia Hart gets in action to build some last minute momentum, will she be ready for Kris Statlander and their TBS Championship match set for Sunday?
Backstage interview with Zack Sabre Jr.
Renee Paquette is with The Front Man of TMDK, and says we’re just days away from WrestleDream, where ZSJ takes on The American Dragon, Bryan Danielson. ZSJ just came off a three week tour in NJPW and just got here to the States, is he worried at all about acclimating? ZSJ asks Bryan “Dragon Bullocks” Danielson, “Where are you, darling?” As Renee just said, ZSJ got off a 16 hour flight from Tokyo and is feeling fresh as a daisy. But perhaps this company’s keeping Bryan wrapped head to toe in bubble wrap, or keeps him in a giant Zorb ball. At this point, a strong gust of wind will knock Bryan over.
And is ZSJ supposed to be honored that Bryan chose him as part of the year long retirement tour? Newsflash: Bryan barely has a weekend. This Sunday isn’t just about finding out who the best technical wrestler is, no no. Bryan has retired once in Seattle, so ZSJ will make it final. Ya like that? The final retirement~! Submissions in Seattle, see you on Sunday. The NJPW World Television Champion has put Bryan on notice, but will he be able to slay the American Dragon?
AEW Women’s World Championship #1 Contender’s match: Ruby Soho VS Hikaru Shida!
While the Outcasts stand at two members, Saraya is looking forward to a friendly showdown with the Runaway in a little under two weeks! But will Ruby make sure there is No Future for the Shining Samurai? Or will Shida take down one Outcast to go after another?
The bell rings and the two circle. Fans fire up as Ruby and Shida step up, and they’re on Shida’s side. Ruby shoves, runs, and RAMS Shida, but Shida just fires up! Ruby headlocks, Shida throws body shots, and then she powers out. Shida then runs past Ruby to run Ruby over! Fans duel, Shida has the majority, and she goes to the corner. Shida climbs up but Ruby slips away before any fists can rain down! Shida is annoyed but she waits on Ruby to return. Ruby takes her time going to the apron, steps in at 6 of 10 but wants Shida to stay back. Shida gets annoyed as the ref keeps her back, but then Ruby pulls Shida’s hair to throw her down!
Ruby throws hands, puts Shida in the corner, then RAMS into her again and again! Fans boo but Ruby runs, only to miss! Shida ROCKS Ruby, then climbs up to rain down fists! Ruby gets away before three, runs back in but into a BOOT! Shida bumps Ruby off buckles, climbs up and rains down those fists! Ruby slips out at five to YANK Shida down! Ruby whips, Shida goes up and CROSSBODIES! Shida then drags Ruby up, puts her in yet another corner, and tries one more time! Shida rains down fists, and goes all the way to TEN! Fans fire up with Shida and she kicks Ruby out, to then MISSILE DROPKICK!
Fans fire up as Shida drags Ruby up, and Rampage goes picture in picture.
Ruby CLUBS away on Shida to stop the lift, then shoves her to a corner. Ruby runs in, Shida dodges, but Ruby ELBOWS her! Ruby goes up to hit DEADLY NIGHTSHADE! Ruby digs Shida into the buckles, lets off as the ref counts, and then brings Shida up to snapmare. Ruby covers, TWO! Ruby throws down fists now, but lets off with a smug smirk. Ruby puts Shida on ropes to CHOKE! The ref counts, Ruby lets off, and then Ruby has Shida in the ropes to throw knees! A shoutout to Saraya, and Ruby lets off at 4. Ruby stalks Shida, looms over her, and pushes her around. Shida pushes back but Ruby eggs her on.
Shida ROCKS Ruby, then fires again! Ruby claws Shida’s face! And throws her down by her hair again! The ref reprimands, but Ruby clamps on a straitjacket stretch! Shida endures, but Ruby grinds her into the mat! Fans rally, Shida fights up, and she arm-drags free! Ruby returns to CLOBBER Shida! Cover, TWO! Ruby is annoyed but Shida grabs at Ruby’s hair! Ruby CLUBS Shida, drags her up, and stomps a hand! Shida scrambles to a corner while the ref reprimands but Ruby stomps a mudhole in. Ruby lets off as the ref counts, and Ruby storms around. Shida drags herself up, but Ruby CHOKES her on the ropes!
The ref counts while Ruby BITES Shida’s ear! Ruby lets off at 4, drags Shida up, but Shida ROCKS her! And again! And again! And again! But Ruby knees low! Ruby talks trash, whips Shida to ropes, but Shida ducks ‘n’ dodges, and DOUBLE LARIATS knock both women down! Rampage returns to single picture as the standing count climbs. Fans rally, both women are down at 5 of 10 but Shida goes to ropes. Shida snarls, she and Ruby stand at 7, and they storm up. Shida fires a forearm, Ruby gives it back! Shida throws another, so Ruby gives it back! They go back and forth, harder and harder, faster and faster!
Ruby gets the edge, but Shida ROCKS her! And ROCKS her! And ROCKS her again! Shida whips to JUMP KNEE! Shida then suplexes high and hard! Cover, TWO! Shida fires up again and the fans are with her! Shida aims, KATA- NO, Ruby ducks and bails out! Fans boo but Shida goes out to pursue! Shida runs in, jumps off the steps, and DROPKICKS Ruby down! Fans fire up again and Shida stands Ruby up. Shida torture racks Ruby, then goes to the ramp!? Fans are thunderous but Ruby fights free! They throw forearms, and CHOPS! Shida CLUBS Ruby, Ruby throws body shots, but the count is climbing!
They both hear it’s 8 of 10 and start sprinting! They both slide in at 9.5!! Fans are thunderous and then Ruby swings, but Shida blocks! Ruby HEADBUTTS, blocks a kick, then KICKS back! SAIDO! Cover, TWO! Shida survives and Ruby grows frustrated. Ruby goes to a corner, and she takes Shida’s kendo stick for her own! The ref stops Ruby, takes the kendo stick, but then Ruby brings out the spray paint! Shida and the ref both block that and they’re all fighting over it! Down goes the ref!! Shida and Ruby are both stunned, but then Ruby HEADBUTTS! DESTINATION UNKNOWN! But no ref to count the cover!
Ruby is furious, she would’ve had this! But then she sees the kendo stick! Ruby grins as she wields Shida’s weapon! Fans boo, but Shida blocks the strike to kick and HEADSHOT! Then KATANA KICK!! Cover, but still no ref! Wait, here comes Aubrey! Aubrey slides in, counts the cover, TWO!! Ruby survives but Shida fires up! Shida puts Ruby in a drop zone, goes up the corner, and she METE- NO! Ruby dodges to then STO! Ruby drags herself up the corner, goes to the very top, and STAGE DIVE SENTONS onto knees! And then FALCON ARROW! Cover, TWO!! Ruby survives but Shida won’t stop there!
Shida hauls Ruby up but Ruby wrenches to NO FUTURE KICK! But Shida rebounds to KATANA!! Cover, Shida wins!!
Winner: Hikaru Shida, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the AEW Women’s World Champion)
The Shining Samurai takes down The Runaway, but wait! Here comes Saraya! #TitleTuesday is coming, will that be a good Knight for the champ? Or will Shida take this belt back to become a historic THREE-TIME champion?
A great Rampage, especially as the go-home to WrestleDream. I figured the title matches would end with the champions retaining, but we got really good stuff out of Acclaimed VS Hardy Party and Eddie VS Rocky. As for their title defenses on WrestleDream, I don’t see TMDK taking the trios titles as this will be their AEW debuts. And as I’ve said a few times already, Eddie isn’t losing both belts he worked so hard to have so soon. Plus, it feels like there’s some tension between NJPW the company and Shibata, or else Shibata would already be NJPW Strong Openweight Champion and not one of ROH’s champs.
Speaking of Eddie, good promo from him before his match with Rocky, and good interaction with Team Triple J. I wasn’t exactly expecting Jay Lethal to be Eddie’s first actual feud for the ROH World Championship, but I suppose it does make sense as Lethal was a major player in ROH. I hope these guys actually show up on ROH programming, but also, Tony Khan wants this feud to be seen so it’ll end up on AEW programming instead. Y’know, just like all these other ROH title stories outside of the AEW Women’s title.
Good squash from The Righteous, and I’m really curious as to how the tag title match goes on Sunday. There’s a lot of stuff MJF still has to do with Cole, Roddy and The Kingdom, and now this intrigue with Jay White, Bullet Club Gold and the backstage attack at the end of Dynamite. I still feel it should’ve been The Kingdom in the PPV match anyway, but it seems they were going to drag this story out even before Cole hurt his foot. Good promo from Nick Wayne to call out Luchasaurus, but I feel like Luchasaurus ends up winning that match just to make a point of Nick not being able to show up ringside for Darby.
Good promo from Andrade to call out Juice for this week’s Collision, and I’m still wondering if/when La Faccion Ingobernable helps Andrade against Bullet Club Gold. For that matter, why can’t MJF be paying LFI to beat up on White and the BCG? He’s had business dealings with Andrade & Rush before, let’s strike that up again for some continuity. Really good promo from Aussie Open ahead of their tag title match, and from ZSJ to call out Bryan. That 8 Man Tag tomorrow night is going to be good stuff, and perhaps rather telling about where the PPV matches go. The only reason I don’t see Aussie Open winning against FTR is because of that big Fatal 4 Way tag contenders match, but who knows, maybe Aussie Open wins to bring the AEW belts to NJPW events as they take on like Goto & Hashi.
And of course, a great main event from Shida and Ruby. Seems a little silly to set up Ruby as a contender, wouldn’t that just end up in a Finger Poke of Doom situation with Saraya? Which therefore meant Shida was winning. Saraya VS Shida for this Title Tuesday Dynamite is going to be good stuff, but something makes me feel like Ruby is just gonna help Saraya retain. And not to be mean to Shida, but if she’s already a two-time champ, I don’t see her becoming three-time so soon. Why not get Shida in on the TBS Championship story? Britt Baker wants to be the first to have held both titles in AEW, but Shida should want that distinction, too. Then that lets us have Britt VS Shida as we should’ve gotten by now given everything else we’ve been seeing lately.
