PLAY BY PLAY

Tyler Bate is here!

The Big Strong Boy may not be NXT UK Champion anymore, but he’s still here in Orlando to talk to the fans. “I just wanted to take this moment to thank you all from the very bottom of my heart.” Fans chant back, “Thank You, Tyler!” Bate thanks the fans who were here on Sunday, for their love and generosity, and those who supported NXT UK from the beginning. Tyler also wants to thank Bron Breakker. Bron proved to the world that he is not only Breakker by name, but breaker by nature. As much as Tyler would’ve loved to be the one to unify the titles, he and Bron created magic. Tyler is grateful to have shared that moment with all these beautiful people.

Now that said, Tyler’s name will forever remain in the history books as the first and the last NXT UK Champion. Tyler also hopes that he represented NXT UK to the best of his abilities. But wait! Here comes Gallus! Joe Coffey says enough of this! This ends tonight! Mark can’t believe Tyler is thanking people when he should be apologizing! Tyler should apologize to everyone back home in the UK. England, Wales, Ireland and especially Scotland! Tyler let the UK down! And more importantly, he let a whole locker room down. More than that, Tyler let all of Europe down! He had one job, and he blew it!

The fans chant, “You Lost, Too!” but Gallus ignores that. Joe says Tyler should be the one standing there with the unified titles. But he’s not! Whatever happened to the Big Strong Boy? Fans chant, “He’s Right There! He’s Right There!” Tyler says yes, Worlds Collide didn’t go the way he’d hoped. But he can’t help but notice Gallus didn’t keep their end of the bargain, either! Where are THEIR unified titles? Wasn’t this Gallus Boys On Top! Hahaha very funny! Very clever! “But just remember, son, wo you’re speaking to. Look around, Tyler Bate. There’s three of us, and there’s one of you!” But Tyler DECKS Joe!

Wolfgang and Mark rush in as Tyler stomps Joe, and Gallus mugs Tyler! Security gets clobbered, too! Fans boo as the beatdown continues, but here comes BRON! Bron CLOBBERS Wolfgang, LARIATS Mark and Belly2Belly suplexes Joe! Joe staggers up, Tyler throws up Bop to hit with BANG! Fans fire up and bark for Bron as he and Tyler stand together! Bron gets a mic to say, “Gallus, you guys have caused nothing but problems since you been here in NXT. On Sunday, worlds collided, but tonight, worlds unify! You guys are looking for a fight? Well, I’ll stand with ya, Tyler! Because we’re gonna kick your ass!” Will the Big Booty Nephew and the Big Strong Boy be the ones on top?

 

Pretty Deadly admire their gold.

Elton Prince says they’re all beautiful! How can they decide which belts are the most beautiful? That’d be like trying to decide between Hemsworth and Pitt! Pitt is lovely. But Kit & Elton won the UK titles in a massive victory, then came overseas to win the US titles in their first match, and against four teams! Then they unified these titles on Sunday against three more teams. Doesn’t that make them the greatest team of all time? YES, BOY! #DoubleSidePlateCheck! OMG! Jinx! Jinx again! Lash Legend walks in and high fives her boys! That was so good on Sunday. It was in-cre-di-ble! But don’t worry about what they’re saying.

Wait, what’re “they” saying? Tell them, tell them! Well, it was only because of Damon Kemp. What?! Why is there always a problem no matter what these two do?! People always have to pick, pick, pick! Pretty Deadly has Lash hold onto the UK belts while they take the US belts to gorilla. Will Pretty Deadly get after all the haters tonight?

 

NXT shares a digital exclusive from Sunday.

After Worlds Collide, Meiko Satomura talked with Roxanne Perez. NXT Media asked her how she felt after the Triple Threat loss. Meiko is disappointed, but she is also proud of everything she did in NXT UK. But then Cora Jade walks over to sarcastically say, “Rough night for you, huh? Can’t relate. So sorry you lost your title.” Cora knows Meiko’s done a lot, but one thing she hasn’t done is experience #GenerationJade. So maybe we change that? Sorry, Cora, Meiko can’t accept. Oh, okay, Cora knows Meiko is scared because it’ll be another L, but hear Cora out. Meiko will get the chance to wrestle Cora. Or is the Final Boss that scared?

No, it’s that she already has a match. Against who? A very respectful Roxanne Perez. Cora grumbles over being snubbed and storms off, but will Roxie show Cora up when she sharpens herself against the steel of the former NXT UK Women’s Champion?

Apollo Crews speaks.

“The true test of a man’s character is shown not in victory, but in defeat. Words are said, insults are thrown, but now I fully see who I’m dealing with in Grayson Waller. The first poke may have been accidental, but the second was unmistakable. He attempted to ruin my vision, permanently blind me from seeing monumental moments. All I can do is storm ahead. But when I look in that direction, it isn’t clear. It’s too hazy, it’s too grainy to make out. Grayson Waller has blurred my vision. But unlike Waller, I’m not afraid of the unknown.” Apollo turns his head, and his damaged eye is red! Will Apollo be able to see just how to get even with Waller?

Screw the haters, listen to the praise. What’re you boys having? Some espresso. Want some? Well, sure! Tony says that was a big win, but how much did it cost? Cost? What’s Tony talking about? C’mon, they got Damon Kemp to screw over Diamond Mine for free? Wow! That’s impressive. Kit doesn’t seem to like the taste of the coffee… Elton says they didn’t ask Kemp to do anything, and Kit says no one was doing anything for them! They won on their own!

Okay, okay. Stacks promises and Tony won’t tell. No, tell people they did this on their own! They’re just like the internet! They’ve always got something to say! Pretty Deadly won on their own! Pretty Deadly storm off, and Stacks still thinks they’re joking. But will Kit & Elton have to prove it themselves that they can win on their own?

NXT Europe is right around the corner, so Bron wants Tyler to know that Tyler IS NXT. They’ll kick Gallus’ ass tonight! They shake hands, will the current and former champions be able to bring down Gallus together?

 

Damon Kemp speaks.

“On Sunday, the whole world was talking about Damon Kemp. But that’s not how I started in NXT.” Roderick Strong brought him into the Diamond Mine because of his wrestling legitimacy. “And how did I do? Brutus & Julius became one of the most dominate tag team champions. And what thanks did I get? Nothing! Roddy didn’t even put me in the singles ranks. It’s always, ‘DK, stay ready for whatever we need you!'” Kemp is a Pan-American Games winner! Championships are in his DNA! As matter of fact, here’s a secret: Kemp beat Brutus’ ass in college! Made him look like a little punk! And Julius was jealous of Kemp because Roddy liked him better.

Hell, Ivy Nile had more of a say in the group than Kemp did! And Kemp saw the Roddy-Julius beef coming from a mile away. He could’ve squashed it, but he decided to stir the pot because he wasn’t given the respect he deserved. So he took them down from within! This is what happens when you put two alphas against each other. And no one thought it was Kemp who took at Roddy in the parking lot! It was so hard to keep a straight face. Kemp gave the Creeds one last chance, but they shut him down! That moment cost them the titles. The sound of that chair hitting Julius’ back signaled the end of Diamond Mine.

Kemp will leave us with this: It isn’t Diamond Mine Forever, it’s Damon Kemp forever! Will the Golden Gopher go for gold now that he’s a one man show?

 

The Dyad are still at their “recognition award” table.

Rip Fowler says “The Schism can help you achieve greatness. To join The Schism is to allow your soul to enter a harmonious place. To sit under The Schism’s tree is to truly-” Jagger Reed calls out to Kiana James and her assistant. They seem a bit lost. They seem to need guidance. Kiana tells Jean to grab a couple of those for them. Thank you, guys, this is great. Can’t wait for this, love what you’re doing, keep it up. Not. Kiana doesn’t do free sponsorships. Jean puts the buttons in the trash. Kiana keeps hounding her subordinate on the phone. Whoever this is always seems to surprisingly screw up! What? When will Duncan get a call from Kiana? Maybe when his phone works!

Someone in a red hoody walks over to The Dyad and offers their smiley face buttons then hugs it out. Meanwhile, Arianna Grace turns down adding anything more to her already busy schedule. She has a luncheon, then a meet ‘n’ greet, then she’s helping judge a beauty pageant. Kiana walks over to say hi. Arianna is just what Kiana has been looking for. Kiana has a problem with- Lyons & Stark? Arianna knows. She can’t stand either of them, either. Then Kiana’s just found a solution to her problem. Jean, book Arianna for training at 6 AM tomorrow morning. Arianna says that works for her schedule. Will this team-up of beauty and business be a winning combination?

 

Ricochet VS Trick Williams w/ Carmelo Hayes!

The one and only reason the One and Only isn’t the NEW North American Champion is because of Melo’s main man getting involved. Will Ricochet make sure to #WhoopThatTrick once and for all? Or will Trick have more tricks up his proverbial sleeves?

NXT returns and Trick makes his entrance. Melo joins commentary as the bell rings. Ricochet tells Melo to watch this closely. Trick runs in, into Ricochet’s KNEE!

And ROCK him! Ricochet puts Trick in, talks some trash on Melo, but Trick storms back up on him. Ricochet shoulders into Trick, slingshots up and over, spins him around and WRINGS him out! Trick endures the armlock while fans rally for Ricochet.

Ricochet wrenches the arm, WRINGS Trick again, and grinds the armlock again. Ricochet knuckle locks, Trick kips up and WRINGS Ricochet, but Ricochet handsprings through! But Trick HEEL KICKS Ricochet down! Trick stomps away on Ricochet in the corner, then lets off. Fans boo but Trick talks trash. Trick drags Ricochet up to whip him hard into the corner! Cover, TWO! Trick runs back in and STINGER SPLASHES! Trick talks trash, slaps Ricochet around then drags him up. Trick suplexes but Ricochet slips off to ROCK him with right hands! Ricochet CHOPS, whips, but Trick reverses. Ricochet ducks ‘n’ dodges, but into a pop-up UPPERCUT! Cover, TWO!

Melo is enjoying himself as Trick covers again, TWO! Trick is annoyed but fans rally up with ‘WHOOP THAT TRICK!” Trick runs, but hits buckles! Ricochet shakes out the cobwebs, but Trick trips up the springboard! Melo is laughing at Ricochet and Trick smacks Ricochet off the desk! Trick keeps hitting Ricochet off the desk and Melo says Ricochet isn’t coming back to NXT after this. Trick puts Ricochet in the ring, but Ricochet cradles! TWO, and Trick YANKS Ricochet into ropes! Fans boo but Trick runs in, SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Ricochet survives and Melo is annoyed.

Melo tells Trick to stay on Ricochet, but Trick is mocking Ricochet’s superhero pose. Ricochet ducks the roundhouse to CLOBBER Trick! Ricochet rallies on Trick, springboards and CROSSBODIES!

Fans fire up more and Ricochet aims from a corner. Melo says Ricochet is full of himself but he’s one to talk. RECOIL!! Ricochet looms over Trick, tells Melo he’s still watching him. Ricochet goes up the corner, Melo is sure Trick will evade. SHOOTING STAR PRESS!! Cover, Ricochet wins!

Winner: Ricochet, by pinfall

Trick didn’t move, and now he isn’t moving at all! Ricochet whooped that Trick, but will he get a fair rematch with The A Champion?

 

Tony D’Angelo and Channing Lorenzo are still having coffee.

And they still can’t believe Pretty Deadly is trying to pull a face one on us. Like The Don couldn’t tell what was really going on. Oh, hey! Cameron Grimes! There he is! Look, Tony gave Grimes time to consider the offer. They both know Tony’s right, so Stacks can get him an espresso on the house. Grimes says these guys don’t stop. They’re as bad as Joe Gacy. But he appreciates the free coffee. Now, Grimes doesn’t know Italian, so he’ll do his best to say this in English. “The answer is no. Not today, not tomorrow, not any day. Because Cameron Grimes don’t need nobody! And he definitely don’t need you two.”

Tony says he gave Grimes the benefit of the doubt, but not this time. The last couple of guys who said no aren’t even here anymore. Tony ran them out! Yeah, but Grimes isn’t like those guys. Yeah, because people actually respect those guys. Grimes throws the coffee in Stacks’ face! Tony DECKS Grimes! Stacks rains down fists, but Grimes fights back! Only for Tony to URENAGE him through the table! Tony & Stacks leave Grimes writhing in the sugar and cream, but will Grimes make sure he gets even with the Don?

 

NXT, a new wave is coming in.

Sol Ruca the surfer girl is coming soon. Who will be able to hang ten and hang tough with her?

 

Backstage interview with Diamond Mine.

McKenzie knows Julius, Brutus and Ivy heard what Kemp had to say, what is their response? Brutus wants to break Kemp’s face! For what Kemp did to Roddy, to the Creeds, and what he said about Ivy! Kemp talks tough when he’s in an empty studio. Talking about a match that happened like six years ago. Brutus says this will be on sight! McKenzie says they don’t know when that’ll be, but next week, they’ll get their championship rematch with Pretty Deadly. Do they have a way to clear their minds? They don’t have a plan. This is fuel on the fire! It’s one thing at a time. First, they correct what happened at Worlds Collide. Then, Kemp’s a dead man!

Pretty Deadly storm in and says they’ve been looking all over for these two “divs.” Pretty Deadly says they beat The Creeds on Sunday! Damon or no Damon, the NXT Tag Team Championships are Pretty Deadly’s! And though the people don’t believe it, they’ll change that. The naysayers who don’t think Kit & Elton deserve the titles will be picking the stipulation for the tag match! That’s right, fans get to decide what kind of match they have! And then, there won’t be any excuses when the Creeds lose again! Julius says everything that’s happened, all this rage he has inside, is going to be taken out on their bitch asses! Just how will this go down between Diamond Mine and Pretty Deadly?

 

Best of 3 Series, Part One: Nathan Frazer VS Axiom!

The British Prodigy wishes the Established Truth could’ve had a chance to compete in NXT UK, and especially in British Rounds matches. But as a compromise, these two will have a best two out of three matches series! Will Frazer learn just how good this anonymous kid really is? Or will he be taking the all-important first fall?

Security is on high alert outside Gallus’ locker room.

Hank tells the guys that Gallus has been wreaking havoc, so they need to keep a close eye on them so that they can’t try anything. But then Javier Bernal walks in and says this bunch of Paul Blart rent-a-cops must be waiting for a fight to be over before doing their jobs. Hank tells Javier to move on already. Easy, tiger, who do you think you’re talking to? This is Big Body Javi. When he made his name on Level Up, he was blowing minds and kissing dimes. Wait a minute. How do all these security guards still have jobs around here? Alright, that’s enough, Javi. No, no, it’s not. Javi is a big time superstar, and Hank’s just a security guard.

Hank says he may not be a superstar, but he could whoop Javi’s ass any day of the week! Gallus heads out, Hank has the guards follow them and leave “the prick” behind. Will Hank have to humble Javi on Level Up?

 

Quincy Elliot speaks.

“The time has come. The biggest package is about to be delivered to NXT. I’m Quincy Elliot, the Super Diva, and I’m about to set fire to Tuesday nights. It’s hard for people to keep my name out of their mouths. But the struggle is real, and I’m more than a mouthful. Nothing’s cuter than a boy and his scooter, and I’m bringing all of this to NXT. Don’t worry, baby. Next week, I’m coming.” Quincy’s on his way, will you be ready?

 

Backstage interview with Melo & Trick.

McKenzie knows that wasn’t how they wanted things to go with Ricochet. Trick says yeah, but even a broken clock is right twice a day. But Trick is still taller, stronger, and even after a loss, he still looks better than Ricochet. Melo says they’re done with Ricochet. Ricochet tried something, he failed, and he doesn’t have what Melo has, and that’s the NXT North American Championship. Next question. Well, next week is the one year anniversary of NXT 2.0. Yeah, the Year of Melo! He done beat everyone there is to beat, done done everything there is to do, he IS the A Champion, and he IS the face of NXT! He’s got that vote in the bag.

But he doesn’t even know who his opponent is yet. Wait, what? What opponent? Who’s left to beat? That’s up to the fans to decide to defend his title against. Uh, no no no. How does McKenzie even know this? Listen, the fans don’t decide any of that, Melo does! Then he can vote on it. Oh! You hear that? They can vote. Melo & Trick storm off, but will The A Champion be careful not to end up a former champion?

 

BREAKING NEWS for the anniversary episode!

After that rejection turned brawl, Tony D’Angelo & Channing Lorenzo are taking on Cameron Grimes, and a partner of Grimes’ choosing! Who will Grimes get to join him against The Don & Stacks? And after recruiting Arianna Grace to her team, Kiana James is getting her payback tag match with Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark! Will the Calculator crunch the numbers and assure victory for her and Arianna?

My Thoughts:

A great NXT to follow up Worlds Collide, and then set up next week’s one year anniversary episode. Next week’s episode is looking pretty big already with how the fans get to vote on things. I like that Pretty Deadly got upset that everyone is stating the obvious when it came to how they won the titles. They had a great bit with Lash, with Tony and Stacks, and with Diamond Mine. I would think the options for that will be things like Tornado Tag, No Disqualifications, things like that. And it doesn’t matter what we get, these teams will deliver, and I bet Kemp will help Pretty Deadly win again to add heat to his feud with Diamond Mine. Kemp had a good promo to hype that up, but I wish this was all still to connect his time in NXT UK hanging out with Gallus.

Great match out of Toxic Attraction VS Nikki & Piper, and what a great surprise that Piper & Nikki won. I don’t know how this will affect their run on Raw, but I suppose this can help them stick together as a team and keep fighting for titles. Good promo from Apollo Crews, and nice reveal of the damaged eye. I also like that he referenced his future sight being affected, that was clearly where they were going with the eye rake. We got another interaction between Tony, Stacks and Grimes, and this was really good with the quick brawl. I can’t wait to see who is joining Grimes against Tony & Stacks, but I have a feeling that person takes the loss.

Quincy Elliot is on his way, so he’s going to have a big debut on the big anniversary episode. And it seems another new star is already being hyped up. Sol Ruca (real name Calyx Hampton) has already been competing on Level Up, she’ll surely win her NXT TV debut, but who knows how her surfer persona will help her. But if she doesn’t use a form of the surfboard stretch as her finisher, I’ll be a bit disappointed. We got a good bit out of The Dyad with Kiana James and her assistant, and also Kiana with Arianna. The tag match between them and Nikkita & Zoey will be very good, but I am betting Nikkita & Zoey win.

Great match out of Roxanne and Meiko, and of course Meiko wins. But also, of course Cora is a sore loser for not getting to be the one that loses to Meiko. Cora attacking Roxie of course adds to their coming rematch, and that thing better be No Disqualification at the least. We got a good match out of Ricochet VS Trick but of course Ricochet wins. Now, whether or not fans vote for him to get a rematch with Melo, we’ll just have to wait and see all the options. Solo Sikoa is heading to SmackDown so he can’t be an option, so I have no idea who else it could be but Ricochet. Either way, Melo will give us another great match, I just hope Trick doesn’t get involved again because that’s just lazy.

We got an awesome match out of Frazer VS Axiom. And what a big surprise that this is a best of three series and not just a British Rounds match. I would be very surprised if this ends in two, but I’m also wondering where this goes when we get a winner. Can it please be that Noam Dar and the renamed NXT Heritage Cup Championship show up and gives NXT a second midcard title? Then we can get Dar VS whoever wins the series, and a lot of other superstars on this brand that never got to visit NXT UK, all giving us great variety in the British Rounds style. It’d just be nice if something from NXT UK survived to enhance NXT 2.0.

And we got great stuff out of Gallus, Bate and Bron. I personally have to agree with Gallus on the point that Tyler Bate should be the Unified NXT Champion over Bron. We got a great promo out of Hank and Javier on the side before the main event, and you can bet Hank VS Javier is happening. The main event tag was great stuff, but of course the Faces win. At least it was Bate getting the pin here. But then nice surprise in JD attacking them both. He clearly wants another shot at the top title, but I have a feeling he’ll have to fight Tyler Bate to earn that opportunity. JD VS Tyler will be awesome, and no matter who wins, they will surely have a great rematch with Bron.

My Score: 8.6/10

Published

on

I’ll be honest, since the lead up hasn’t exactly sparked much excitement from me, I can’t really tell what might get relegated to Countdown and what will be on the main show aside from major title stories. So with that being said, I’ll cover the Countdown this time around, because well…who knows what will be on it.

Let’s hope that the bit of momentum with the WWE working relationship and the stories coming out about the locker room being seemingly happy with the direction of things; have to hope that will start to equate to a product that makes some damn sense.

Results:

Countdown to Against All Odds: Jonathan Gresham vs Sami Callihan

Callihan attacks The Octopus on the outside before the bell rings. A few chops around the ring and bounces Gresham’s face off the post twice. Sami goes for the Cactus Driver on the outside, but Gresham rotates all the way through to grab the ropes and counter Sami. Gouges Sami’s face, breaks fingers Pentagon style, and Sami retreats to a different side of the outside of the ring. Octopus chases and keeps working on the hand, but Sami counters and starts going for a few more Knife Edge Chops. Sami tries to Lawn Dart Gresham into the post, but Gresham slips and shoves Sami into the post. Now Octopus back to working on the left hand and arm. Arm Wringers and Uppercuts right into the elbow.

Sami gets some control back, rolls Gresham into the ring and now the match can officially start…OR NOT! Gresham rolls back out and heads under the ring so Sami goes hunting for Octopus. Gresham grabs the left arm from under the ring, uses a chair since the ring obscures the referee’s vision, and then slowly they head back in the ring. Soccer Ball kick to the injured arm, and Gresham continues to try and work on the arm, but Sami is fighting back. Sami tries to Irish Whip, but the sells the left arm! Callihan adjusts his offense and tries to use his legs and only the good right arm. But as soon as he goes for a Cactus Driver, the arm sell happens again.

Gresham rips the mask off the referee, Kushida shows up in a Doc Brown gimmick and with a mask. He attacks Gresham while the ref is distracted to swab out the ink and place it into a vial. Sami connects with the Cactus Driver ’97 and wins.

Insanely gimmicky, extremely stupid. Feels like a dumbass thing that would happen on DDT, not an American program. So they made Gresham talk last night, which ruins the essence of a evil character, and now they have him lose with Kushida trying to do science on what the ink is. I can’t properly express how many brain cells I feel like I lost. 

Countdown to Against All Odds: TNA Knockouts Tag Team Titles: DeMALISH (Masha Slamovich & Alisha Edwards) vs The Hex (Marti Belle & Allysin Kay)

Marti and Alisha start, Marti uses Alisha’s face like a speed bag, tags in Allysin, quick tandem work gives The Hex a nearfall. Alisha manages to run to make the tag, and Masha comes in, but immediately starts dominating Masha. Tandem Snapmare, Fun Splash, Senton, PK, for another near fall from The Hex. Allysin tries to shoot Masha across, Masha gets the Arm Wringer, drives Allysin into her corner, but a Boot stops Masha. Allysin tries to get out and Alisha grabs Allysin by the hair to pull her back.

Alisha gets in a few quick shots, Allysin tries to fight back, but the Eye Rake evens the score. Alisha tags out, Hip Attack from Masha into repeated Snapmares with the hair into a near fall. Short Arm Lariats, Masha connects on two, Allysin counters the third, they both hit the ropes, stereo Clothesline spot into the simultaneous tags. Marti beats on Alisha in the corner, Double Knees into a two count. SAVAT KICK from Masha to level Marti, Allysin takes out Masha, Delish from Alisha, Marti hits The Stroke, and all four are down for a few moments. Rolling Forearm into Saito Suplex for another near fall on Alisha. Hex Marks the…nope Alisha slips the move, Masha gets in things breakdown into a sloppy fight, Alisha tries to shove Allysin into Marti but hits Masha. HEX MARKS THE SPOT, Masha makes the save, barely! Dual spots in corners, Alisha fights off Allysin with the Avalanche Powerbomb, Masha Electric Chairs Marti, STEINERIZER! DeMALISH retain.

Mike Santana & Steve Maclin vs The Rascalz (Trey Miguel & Zachary Wentz)

Rascalz try to utilize their speed and teamwork advantage with a tag out the gates as Trey distracts Santana, Wentz runs in, and they match each other. Counters, dodges, really fun equal footing but different styles opening. Simultaneous tags Trey and Maclin are in, Maclin quickly takes advantage of Trey, tags in Santana and they go for a Dual Suplex, but Wentz catches Trey and then takes out Maclin. Santana gets surprised by Trey, Body Scissors into a Double Stomp, then Trey tags in Wentz and a quick Tandem kick. Santana tries to fight back against Wentz, but Wentz eats a few chops and then turns it around. Tag out to Trey, Trey connects with a low single leg Dropkick for a near fall. Kick Rush from Rascalz, Wentz tries to punctuate with a Stomp on the back of the head but Santana dodges and Double Lariats The Rascalz. Maclin tags in and starts stacking up the Rascalz and beating them like they owe him money. Maclin tries a SCUD but Wentz catches him with a Cutter in the ropes, shortcut double team offense.

The ref was distracted with Santana trying to get in to stop the double team, so Maclin kicks out easily because of a slow start to the count. Trey with a cheap choke, then he tags in, goes for a disrespectful Half Crab and Santana just kicks Trey in the back. Rascalz find interesting ways to keep working over Maclin, Trey goes for a Popping Meteora, but Maclin stop it, turns it into an Electric Chair style counter and tags in Santana. Santana with the hot tag, takes out both Rascalz, stacks them interestingly to pull off a tandem DDT. Maclin and Santana work together, Maclin kicks Santana to send him into his Rolling Buck Fifty, Maclin then connects with a Busaiku Knee, and only 2 since Trey breaks it up! Rascalz finally get the best of things, a tandem Rope Assisted Pedigree with a Swanton from Wentz, but Maclin kicks out.  MACLIN EATS THE CHELSEA GREEN FUCK YOUR FACE IN THE CORNER DROPKICK SPOT!  Rolling Double Stomp! Santana rolls in to make the save, Hot Fire Flame attempt but Maclin gets the knees up. Cradle attempt, but they push off Maclin into Santana. Superkick Party on Maclin, Buckshot Lariat from Santana wipes out Trey, Enzuigiri from Santana. They set each other up, Caught in the Crosshairs , Spin the Block! Santana and Maclin win.

This is the first objectively smart thing TNA has done in the post-Scott era. Maclin and Santana were amazing together. This is a pairing that people will want to see again, and if they double down on it being a “one off”, it will make people want to see it again. Damn good stuff here.

PCO vs Rich Swann w/AJ Francis

Swann runs around tries to get frisky, but PCO grab him, Boots him, chucks him into the corner, Hesitation Dropkick to the back of Rich’s head for a near fall. AJ tries to pick the ankle, PCO kinda cares, but then eats a Superkick that does nothing. PCO charges, Rich hits the Low Bridge and PCO crashes to the floor. 450 from the apron, and Rich throws him back in and starts kicking PCO and hits a Bronco Buster.PCO fires back up, levels Rich, drapes him over the bottom rope and hits the Guillotine Leg Drop, driving Swann’s face into the mat. AJ grabs Rich’s foot and puts it on the bottom rope, then faceplants PCO on the apron. Rich takes too long to capitalize, PCO trips Swann, Lungblower from the corner spot, PCO Dives on AJ to try and equal the playing field. PCO-SAULT, 1-2-3, PCO wins.

SDL’s music hits, she walks out smiling and looking like a snack. Asks for the mic, and SDL plays with the crowd about different ways to say yes or no. Her answer is: OUI! 

TNA Tag Team Championships: The Nemeth Bros (Ryan & Nic Nemeth) vs The System (Eddie Edwards & Brian Myers) (c)

Brian Myers starts with Ryan, Ryan gets a quick advantage, they go for a tandem Arm Wringer/Neckbreaker combo. Myers tags out, Nic tries to throw a Superkick but Lish grabs the foot. WAIT DIRTY DANGO shows up out of nowhere and rats out Alisha?! We haven’t seen him in months since they punked out Oleg Prudius and him against Josh Alexander. So Lish gets ejected but The System jumps on Nic and tries to get in a few quick shots to try and end this quickly now they don’t have insurance.

Belly to Back Suplex from Myers after Eddie uses the ropes for a cheap choke, Eddie officially tags back in, and just quick tags and snappy offense from The System. Myers goes for the Manhattan Drop but Nic gets away from him, tags out to Ryan and a few quick attacks into a Rude Awakening for a near fall. Myers checks Ryan with a Boot to the gut, Eddie tags in, Eddie bounces off the ropes and Body Checks Ryan, while Myers connects with the Spear, but Nic makes the save! Myers shoves Ryan into their corner, Ryan tries to fight out to get to Nic, but a Drop Toe Hold puts a stop on the surge. Ryan counters with a Sunset Flip, but Myers manages to make the tag before falling over, so the pinfall doesn’t count and Eddie starts laying into Ryan. We get an “Ooo fuck Eddie Edwards” chat that pops up. Eddie goads the crowd a bit and tags in Myers. Headlock on Ryan, Ryan tries to Elbow out, but Myers stays in control and the crowd keeps talking shit to Eddie even though he’s not the legal man “fuck your fo-hawk”. Myers poses, Ryan hits a Reverse X Factor, simultaneous tags. Nic is on fire, laying everyone out, Jumping Leg Drop on Eddie for 2. Fame-ASSER! But only another 2 count.

Moose is down at ringside now, Eddie and Myers with their System Overload combo of Backpack Stunner and Elbow Drop for 2! Ryan grabs Eddie to stop Boston Knee Party, Superkick, into their Highway to the Danger Zone finish! 1-2-SOMEONE PULLS THE REF! Moose points at Dango, the ref is confused, Nic dives on Moose, Dango shows his true colors and clocks Ryan Nemeth. Boston Knee Party, The System retains the gold!

Joe Hendry w/Ace Steel vs Frankie Kazarian

Frankie Kazarian getting compared to Antonio Banderas and then calling him the dad from Spy Kids is fantastic. 

Hendry and Kaz Shoulder Tackle each other, trade a couple shots and then Hendry lifts him for the stalling suplex. Kaz tries to break it with punches to the body, but Hendry holds strong and connects with the Vertical Suplex. Kaz powders to the apron, Hendry tries to collect him but gets caught with the Guillotine Leg Drop. Kaz throws a few moves together, including his Side Russian Leg Sweep for a near fall. Scoop Slam from Kaz, Springboard Guillotine Leg Drop for 2! Kaz tries to cinque in the Body Scissors and Headlock, but Hendry powers through and turns it into a Suplex to break Kaz’s momentum.

Kaz gets whipped into the corner, gets the boot up, tries a Crossbody but Hendry catches him and his the Sack of Shit into the kip up! Kaz tries the Chicken Wing to slow down Hendry trying to keep momentum, a flurry of strikes with a big PK to give Kaz some space. Fade to Black attempt, but nope, Hendry tries a Powerbomb but Kaz slips it and connects with a Back Stabber! Runs the ropes and Kaz gets caught in a Pop-Up Powerbomb for 2! Kaz tries to bait in Hendry to the apron, Hendry grabs a roll of quarters from his tights, Hendry connects with an outside in Belly to Back Suplex, but Kaz pops him with the loaded fist and gets the win!

Post match, Kaz goes for a Chicken Wing to add insult to injury, Ace Steel finally comes all the way out and clocks Kaz. 

X Division Championship: Trent Seven vs Mustafa Ali (c)

Trent said the tape machines kept rolling, they show post-interview footage where Mustafa says the X Division title is a prop, he doesn’t even live in Chicago, and just freaking out. Mustafa charges Trent, Trent dodges and Mustafa bounces his face off the buckles, SEVEN STAR LARIAT! 1-2-Kick out! That was nearly a quick loss. Ali slows down Trent a few times, and the crowd is dumb and gives the “we still love you” to Ali. Ali with a Jumping DDT, then a Dive on Trent, but Trent shoves Ali into the apron and then a Dragon Suplex onto the floor. Back in the ring, Trent goes for the Corkscrew Senton but misses everything and grabs his leg.

Shotgun Dropkick into the corner from Ali, Trent absorbs and follows with a Lariat, Ali reverses Trent for another Dropkick, goes for a third but Trent catches him and Powerbombs him into the middle of the ring for a near fall. Birminghammer attempt, but Eye Gouge from Ali, Trent with an open hand Chop but Ali baits him into the corner, Gamegiri into the Rolling DDT for 2. Ali with some hammering Forearms, but Trent with a Flowsion out of nowhere to get some separation. Fighting Spirit spot, Ali does my favorite thing! He doesn’t fall for the Bop and Bang and just Roundhouse Kicks Trent in the face. Too bad Ali falls for it like 2 moves later. Ali DDTs the leg, then tries another Rolling DDT, but Trent connects with a Dragon Suplex into the Sitout Powerbomb for two. X Plex attempt, but Ali shoves Trent and the ref cowers in the corner almost bumped, Low Blow into in a Lariat for a near fall!

Ali heads to the top, Trent cuts him off, Ali flips forward out of it, Superkick rocks Trent, Ali runs up the ropes for a Superplex but AVALANCHE FLOWSION! Only 2. Birminghammer attempt, Eye Gouge again, Birminghammer attempt again, but Ali grabs the ropes, throws off Trent, slips out and then Dragon Screws the leg into the apron. Ali goes to the top, Trent meets him, they fight in the corner, Headbutt from Trent and they both crash down into the apron and bounce off to the outside. 10 Count starts, Ali decides to climb the corner, Trent slides in at 9 and eats a 450 to the back for a 2 count. Ali goes to get his belt, the referee stops him, Trent hits a Low Blow as the ref is putting the belt back, BIRMINGHAMMER! 1-2-NO!

Mustafa tries to bail, grabs the ring apron as Trent pulls him back, Chops him in the back a few times, crotches him in the corner, Avalanche BIRMINGHAMMER? Eye Gouge fights back, kicks out the leg, and then 450 to the injured legs into a Scorpion Deathlock! Trent taps out.

Josh Alexander & Eric Young vs The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey)

Early on we get the typical watered down Japanese tag style of a few fancy counters like La Magistral Cradles and Suplex counters and stuff, but nothing really worth typing about. Which is smart since the last match was pretty hot, so you want to start simple and build. ABC start going for a few higher risk moves with Tandem Shoot Ins for Jumping High Kicks and Back Head Kicks. EY Up and Overs Bey, whips him into the opposite corner and tags in Josh. Josh goes for his locomotion Shoulder Tackles, Bey tries to counter it and go for an Art of Finesse, but Josh catches him and Release German Suplexes him. Teamwork from Josh, Gutbuster and Elbow Drop combination for a 2. Ace tries to get involved and Josh and Bey go for THE OLE DICK TWIST! I’m not really sure what I’m looking at beyond a meme and it’s Chicago…so I’m not surprised. But just…why.

Things break down a little everyone’s doing stuff, Josh perches Ace for the Low Crossbody but Ace dodges it! Then Ace does his Handstand dodge, Josh just grabs his Ankle though. Ace tries to hold onto the ropes to he doesn’t completely fall, Bey dives over Ace and lays out Josh but then EY flies and takes out Bey. Ace posts EY, Josh walks back in the ring and calls Ace in. Josh goes for an Avalanche Death Valley Driver, Ace fights it off, Ace hits the Flipping Outside In Headscissors. Goes for an Overhead Spin Kick, but Josh catches the foot. Ace fights out, ABC try to team up on Josh but a Suplexes both and tags out to EY. Discus Lariat into a Spicolli Driver on Ace! Bey kicks him, Ace tries something, but EY stacks them on his shoulders, they both slip him, Dual Roundhouse Kicks! But only a 2 count.

Everyone doing things in the ring, a cameraman gets taken out literally, the camera looks like scrambled porn in the 90s. Powerbreaker from Josh for 2! Rolling Senton into the Macho Elbow, but Ace makes the save. EY accidentally lays out Josh, EY tries to Piledriver Bey but Ace jumps over the world and hits The Fold on EY! Bey with the Jacknife cover and ABC win!

TNA Knockouts Championship: Jordynne Grace (c) vs Tatum Paxley

Personal concierge shows up after Tatum makes her entrance, ASH by Elegance will show up…to watch the match, as per usual. 

Things start a little slow, Tatum brings that quirky unhinged Hot Topic girl energy, and Jordynne is Thicc Mama Pump. Okay Tatum counters Jordynne’s rope run by very suggestively enticing her to come into full mount. Jordynne manages to grab her foot and get her to stand up to just Reverse Side Slam her and go for the Camel Clutch. Tatum gets out of it with biting her hand, and then heads under the ring. ASH is actually telling her where she is, Jordynne tries to grab her, but Tatum pulls her into the steel ring frame. She tries to Suplex her, but Jordynne blocks a few times, so Tatum just drives her into the post.

Tatum pulls off the old Lance Storm counter into the Half Crab, but Jordynne gets out of it. Back Kick from Jordynne, Jordynne tries the Vader Bomb, but Paxley cuts her off first, tries a Rope Hung Neckbreaker, but Jordynne holds on. Hits two Vader Bombs only for near falls. Juggernaut Driver attempt, but Tatum stops it, Jordynne hits the Rolling Fent Back Elbow. They fight in the corner, Uppercut from Jordynne, KINNIKU BUSTER! We know that won’t finish the match, Tatum tries a slide and we go into a Locomotion Cradles. Paxley connects with a Spear that she rolls through beautifully, but both women have counters for counters for counters. Tatum is perched in the corner, they’re fighting on the middle rope, AVALANCHE LOBOTOMY, 1-2-NOPE! Tatum starts clawing at the ears since she had the stitches after the Roxxane Perez match. Tatum with a Seated Head and Neck Choke, but Jordynne fights through and they start slapping each other. Jordynne goes for a lazy cover, and Tatum tries to surprise her with a Guillotine Choke! Grace stands up, Jackhammer for 2!

Jordynne clubs with a few Vader Hammers, Tatum tries to counter, Grace goes for the Sp inning Backfist but Tatum ducks it the first time, but not the second. Death Valley Driver into Juggernaut Driver, and Jordynne retains!

ASH attacks Jordynne after the match but Jordynne fights her off. Covers ASH in her bottle of champagne, then takes a swig herself and walks off victorious while ASH and concierge are slipping and looking like dorks.

BROKEN RULES – TNA World Heavyweight Championship: Moose (c) vs Broken Matt Hardy

The Nemeth Fuschnikens show up and take out The System! Only Lish is now left. 

Matt takes advantage of the early distraction, Twist of Fate attempt but Moose spins out but Matt turns it into the DDT. Side Effect from Hardy on the apron, then he hits the Twist of Fate on the outside. Moose sells dead weight well, Matt finally rolls him in, then Moose keeps rolling. Moose and Lish find weapons, and Moose hits Matt with a trash can lid and Baking Sheet. Moose takes one of many chairs, and just lays into Matt a handful of times. Moose barks at the camera that he’s “Gonna end his damn career”, so he fishing out a ladder from under the ring.

Moose smacks Matt with a few more chair shots and then makes a Ladder + Chair ramp contraption. Jacknife attempt from Moose, Hardy drops to his knees and Upper Cuts Moose’s balls! Then Matt starts using a chair of his own. Moose powders, Matt follows and they take this throw the crowd and goes somewhere…the camera work is a little useless. It’s like N.E.W. Indy level of “we can’t see”. I’m just assuming moves were attempt, looks like maybe a Jacknife that Matt counters and goes up high, just to do a Delete chant. I want a Balcony Level Extreme Leg Drop! But they head back to the ring, so at least now we can see, and Matt bounces Moose’s face off the post and rolls Moose in. Vertical Suplex from Matt, then he goes to the second rope, Elbow Drop for 2! Matt sets up for Twist of Fate, Moose pushes off and URANAGE counter! 1-2-kick out! Moose wanders out to find more weapons and drags out a table, as the peasants rejoice.

Propping the table in the corner, we see Moose trying to set up Matt for the Spear. they both dodge attempting to be put through the table, so Moose Sabu’s Matt with a chair. Moose sets up a pile of chairs, grabs Senor Hardy and they go up the turnbuckle Superplex into the chairs, only for 2! Alisha is also yelling at this very audible annoying Chicago fan. Moose goes for a second Chair spot, but Matt slips the Suplex and Avalanche Powerbomb into the chairs! Matt goes for the cover, but Moose kicks out! Hardy goes under the ring for a…. CARDBOARD BOX! A PARCEL OF CHIPBOARD! Moose decks Matt, opens the box and it’s Moose’s throwback Patriots Helmet. Moose puts his old helmet on, charges Matt Hardy and Matt Back Drops him into the Chekov’s Ladder+Chair. Matt goes for a table and another ladder. Is Matt gonna go for another crazy bump? OH Hardy gets a Bears helmet. Now it makes sense why it was a throwback Patriots helmet, because of the 1985 Bears Super Bowl. Matt clocks Moose with the Bears Helmet, the crowd chants “CTE”, Matt puts Moose on the table, EXTREME LEG DROP from the ladder!

Hardy puts the chair around Moose’s head, TWIST OF FATE into the chair! Goes for the cover and Alisha brings out Kendra and lights up Matt. REBY COMES OUT! She takes her earrings off and someone else is holding her baby! Spanish girl serious fighting 101! Reby hits the Twist of Fate on Lish and tries to help out Matt. Moose sees Matt coming and pulls Reby in the way! Matt spears his wife through the table and then Moose hits LIGHTS OUT!

 

Overall Score: 7.75/10

Well admittedly the first half of the show had a good bit of gimmicky extra bodies overbooking. Kushida, Dango and Jeff Hardy being back is definitely a positive thing with Slammiversary next up. Nic Nemeth hopefully picks up a little more steam, because early splitting time with New Japan stifled his initial impact, now with two title losses in like 4 months of activity is a little silly. Hendry getting a hold over rivalry to slow roll his rise in popularity could be ok. I think they’re not on a large enough scale to benefit more from a slow burn as opposed to cashing in now. But it’s wrestling, you never know. Plus if he gets some shine in NXT, it could be better to ride that exposure wave as well.

The card had overall solid action, even if booking was suspect at moments through the night and the audio for the Ali tape was awful…ruined the intended effect. Jordynne with the opening challenge and an at home annoyance is a good angle. System will probably get into a feud with The Hardys, ya know, while neither is injured. Moose has Hendry looming, but again, not sure how they’re gonna play that card. Also for personal reasons I wanna see if Xia continues to be SDL’s love council bestie type character now that she agreed to date PCO.

So yeah, pretty good show all things considered. The end of the show sends people home happy with Jeff Hardy returning to stand tall with Reby, Matt, Joe Hendry and the Nemeths. There’s a lot to play out. Even if somethings sound super stupid right now (looking at you Octopus and Doc Kushi). But, at least there different levels of storylines to figure out. So when it comes down to the bare bones, the show did its job and was a pretty enjoyable watch.

Speaking of, Alex doesn’t even wait for the bell, she goes after Toni the moment she’s in a corner! The fans boo but the bell rings and the ref reprimands.

Backstage interview with Harley Cameron.

Arkady Aura is with The Outcasts’ crazier component, and says she’s a bit surprised to see Harley without Saraya, considering the big win last week. Yeah, yeah, who cares? Saraya is not here as a form of protest! All these women are all declaring for the Women’s Owen Hart Tournament. Oh~, declaring~! What are we? Royal subjects? Oh, a royal decree from the king! Or maybe we’re more old Southern women, “Oh, I do declare!” The only one who should be declaring anything is Saraya. Because the winner gets a world title shot at All In. And who was it that won last year at Wembley Stadium? Saraya! What a declaration!

And with that said, Saraya’s done it before, and she will do it again. And now Harley declares this interview over, goodbye. Then from Harley’s mouth to the world’s ears, will Saraya make sure she is the one crowned the 2024 Queen of Harts before crowning herself champion once again?

 

AEW hears from Thunder Rosa and Deonna Purrazzo.

La Mera Mera tells “Deonna, you might’ve been a little bit busy, but there were some flashing news. Saturday is the one-year anniversary of Collision. And as a tradition, Thunder Rosa always likes to pick a fight. And who else than you?” But The Virtuosa asks back, what does Rosa not understand here? Rosa’s selfishness has forced Deonna to embrace her own. But La Mera Mera isn’t owed anything. From where Deonna comes from, those who want respect must show respect. And those who refuse get respect beaten into them. Saturday Night Collision, Rosa VS Deonna, NO DISQUALIFICATIONS! And Deonna asks what Rosa thinks happens when her head collides with a chair.

Rosa says nothing will stop her from showing Deonna the real respect of a warrior. No disqualifications, no problems. Happy Anniversary, Collision! But who will celebrate by standing over the other’s battered body?

 

Six Man Tag: The Cage of Agony VS Solomon Tupu, Jay Marston & Kevin Gutierrez!

Brian Cage, Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona have broken away from Swerve’s House to do things their way. So far, so good, for them. But will their opponents wish it’d been another three sent into The Cage of Agony?

The trios sort out, Tupu starts against Kaun, and the two circle. Liona distracts Tupu and Kaun DROPKICKS Tupu into the corner! Kaun CHOPS, then fires off forearms! The ref counts, Kaun bumps Tupu off buckles to then fire off more forearms. Kaun CHOPS, the ref has him back off, and Kaun runs in. Tupu goes up and over, keeps moving, and Gutierrez tags in.

Cage drags Marston up, reels him in, puts one out, an d gives Marston a POWERBOMB! Cage then tags to Kaun, Liona steps in with him. Tupu runs in, dodges The Gates, but Cage SUPERKICKS him! Then the Gates get Tupu up to CLOSE THE GATES!

Cage drags Marston over, and the trio TRIPLE SLAMS him! Kaun covers, The Cage of Agony wins!

Winners: The Cage of Agony, by pinfall

This dangerous trio is only more dangerous now that they’re the ones in charge! Will they be right on the heels of the Unified AEW & ROH World Trios Champions?

 

Rocky Romero VS Shota Umino!

It’s another Forbidden Door appetizer as Azucar “welcomes” The Roughneck back to AEW! #SHOOTER has learned a lot from Jon Moxley over the past four years, will he show all those lessons have paid off? Or will Rocky make it clear Shota’s still got a lot to learn?

The bell rings and the two shake hands to show there’s sportsmanship here. The fans cheer, the two tie up, and Shota wrenches to a wristlock. Rocky rolls, slips around, facelocks and cravats. Shota swim moves to wrench and wrangle Rocky to the mat. Rocky stands, Shota wrenches and wristlocks, but Rocky pulls hair. The ref reprimands, but Rocky wrenches through to an IRON OCTOPUS! Shota endures, powers out and throws Rocky down. Shota has the toehold, then digs a knee into the knee. Rocky turns over, stands up, clinches, and they end up on ropes. The ref counts, Rocky slowly lets off, and then CHOPS!

Shota just stares Rocky down! The fans fire up, and Shota winds up to CHOPS! Rocky staggers and sputters, Shota fires forearms! Shota spins, Rocky ducks the elbow, but runs into a scoop and DROP! Then a basement dropkick! The fans cheer and Shota does a dance similar to Mercedes Mone’s! Shota stomps Rocky around, CLUBS him, then stalks him to ropes. Shota CLUBS Rocky again, but Rocky grits his teeth. Shota ROCKS Rocky against ropes, then has him in a corner. Shota stomps and UPPERCUTS, then he stalks Rocky. Shota stomps Rocky, UPPERCUTS again, then whips to ropes. Rocky holds ropes to BOOT back!

Shota runs up but Rocky DUMPS Shota out! Rocky builds speed and DIVES! Shota’s head hits the desk and the ref checks him out while Rampage goes picture in picture.

It seems Shota is okay so the ref goes back to the ring. Rocky stands, fires up, and gives us some Latino Heat. Rocky puts Shota in the ring, drops a knee into the back, then stomps Shota before dropping a knee on the chest! Cover, TWO! Shota toughs it out but Rocky drags him up. Rocky KICKS the bad arm, wrenches it, then hits an ELBOW BREAKER! Shota goes to ropes, Rocky puts him through ropes, to KICK again! Rocky goes up a corner, gives some more Latino Heat, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Shota flounders, Rocky covers, TWO! Rocky argues the count but the count was fair, so Rocky clamps onto Shota with a cobra clutch!

Rocky thrashes Shota around but Shota endures. Shota fights up, throws elbows, but Rocky CLUBS him on the back. Rocky TOSSES Shota out, then aims from the apron! CROSSBODY, but Shota catches him! Shota pops Rocky up but Rocky slips free, so Shota SHOTGUNS him down! Both men are on the floor on the outside and the fans rally up. Shota rises up, fetches Rocky, and puts him in the ring. But Rocky DROPKICKS Shota back! Shota is down in the corner and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Rocky clotheslines Shota in a corner! Rocky keeps going, and clotheslines again! Then he keeps going, but Shota DROPKICKS him down! The fans fire up and Shota pounds the mat. The fans rally behind Shota and he aims at Rocky at the ropes. Slingshot, APRON DDT! The fans fire up again as Rocky flops to the floor! Shota puts Rocky in, then goes up a corner. Shota aims as Rocky flounders, MISSILE DROPKICK! Shota hurries to clinch, EXPLODER! Cover, TWO! Rocky survives but Shota stays focused. Shota waits on Rocky to rise up, then runs in, IGNIT- NO, Rocky makes it a backslide!

Shota rolls through the cover, blocks a kick, ducks the enzigiri, but not the REWIND HEEL! Shota staggers to a corner, Rocky runs in. Shota dodges, runs in, but Rocky UPPERCUTS! Rocky goes up and up and TORNADO DDTS! Rocky pounds the mat, the fans rally behind him now, and he aims from a corner. Shota rises, Rocky runs in, SLICED BREAD!! Cover, TWO!! Shota survives and Rocky roars! The fans are torn as Rocky drags Shota up. Rocky fires forearms, but Shota just eggs him on! The fans like that, so Rocky fires more forearms! Shota roars, but Rocky UPPERCUTS! And cravat, for the SLICED- NO, Shota poops free!

Shota POP-KNEES, then IGNITION!! Cover, TWO!! Rocky survives but Shota takes aim from the corner now! A shoutout to Ospreay here with his BLAZE BLADE!! And then PARADIGM SHIFT!! Cover, Shota wins!

Winner: Shota Umino, by pinfall

The Roughneck does indeed prove that what he learned from his senpai, his upperclassmen, have indeed made him into a great wrestler! But will he become one of the greatest wrestlers as he continues to battle all around the world?

 

Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt & Jay Lethal VS Rosario Grillo!

The One in a Billion is a big, big man, but he still has a lot to prove if he wants to be the best of the best. Will he finally start building on a win streak? Or will Rosario overcome this mountain of a man?

The bell rings, and Satnam offers a handshake? Rosario takes it, but Satnam won’t let go! Rosario kicks and kicks and CHPOS and CHOPS, but Satnam’s grip is too strong! And speaking of, he grabs Rosario by the neck, to PO-UP BEARHUG!! Satnam ragdolls Rosario! Rosario is OUT, Satnam wins!

Winner: Satnam Singh, by pinfall

Satnam TOSSES Rosario aside, having made quick work of the mere mortal. Sonjay Dutt gets in the ring with a mic to say, “Hey hey hey hey hey! Bubba (Jay Lethal), tell ’em, what’re you gonna do?” Lethal takes the mic to say ladies and gentlemen, Satnam Singh is on a freakin’ roll! Satnam just squashed Grillo in record time, and Lethal is so impressed that not only will he beat his opponent tonight, but he and Sonjay have a little side bet that Lethal can do it even faster than what Satnam just did. Satnam chuckles and Lethal says he’s done waiting! Bring that poor shmuck out here! Did Lethal not read the match card? Lethal’s up against THE BASTARD!!

Fans fire up as Pac makes his entrance out here. Pac already said he was in a bad mood on Dynamite, and surely Lethal taking him lightly isn’t helping things. Will Pac make sure Sonjay wins that side bet with Lethal?

PAC VS Jay Lethal w/ Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh!

The bell rings, Pac dodges Lethal to flying-mare! Pac has the headlock, Lethal puts him in a corner, and the ref counts. Pac lets go but Lethal stomps a mudhole! The ref counts, Lethal stops and walks it off. Sonjay knows he’s already won the side bet but he still wants Lethal to win the match. Lethal tosses Pac out, but Pac lands on the apron. Pac RAMS into Lethal, slingshots up and over, then comes back, only for Lethal to hip toss! Lethal cartwheels but Pac kips up! Pac SUPERKICKS Lethal, Lethal bails out, so Pac runs to FLY! Direct hit and Pac stares through the camera into the souls of the AEW roster!

Pac drags Lethal up, but he’s wary of Satnam. Pac puts Lethal in, goes up, and fans chant “HE’S OUR BASTARD!” Lethal rises, but Sonjay distracts the ref! Pac hops down, BOOTS Lethal, but Satnam trips Pac! And YANKS him out! The ref saw that one! The fans cheer as the ref EJECTS Satnam! Team Triple J is freaking out, but Lethal rains down fists on Pac. The ref counts, Lethal lets off but the fans sing ‘Hey hey hey! Goodbye~!” to Satnam. Lethal whips Pac hard into railing, then RAMS him into the POST! Lethal then runs to DROPKICK Pac down! Sonjay mockingly asks if Pac’s hurt, but the ref tells him to back off!

Lethal tells Sonjay to cool it so he doesn’t get kicked out. Lethal drags Pac up and into the ring while Sonjay mouths off to fans. Lethal drags Pac up, but Pac fires body shots. Lethal TOSSES Pac out, builds speed, and Lethal fakes the dive to Fargo Strut instead. The fans “WOO~” with Lethal and he smiles. Sonjay says Lethal’s the man! Lethal then goes out to fetch Pac, but Pac whips! Lethal reverses, Pac hits steel steps! Sonjay mocks Pac again with a fake apology, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Lethal leaves Pac behind, and he counts along with the ring count. Pac is still down at 5 of 10, but he drags himself up with the apron. Pac flounders in at 8, but Lethal stomps him down! Lethal drags Pac up, bumps him off buckles, then stomps a mudhole. Lethal RAMS Pac into the corner, snapmares him into a chinlock, and he grinds Pac down. Pac endures, pries at the hold, and fights up. The fans rally as Pac breaks free! Pac ROCKS Lethal, CHOPS him, then CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS again! Pac whips Lethal, Lethal reverses then TOSSES Pac out! Lethal wants the ring count again, but that’s just all distraction so Sonjay can stomp away!

The fans boo and try to point Sonjay out, but he scurries away. Lethal gets the ref to finally count, and then joins in. Pac is still down at 5, drags himself over, and Lethal grows anxious. Pac rises up and drags himself in at 9! Lethal runs to ELBOW DROP! Cover, ROPEBREAK! Pac survives by a literal foot but Lethal drops elbow after elbow on that leg! Lethal just keeps going with elbow after elbow, then soaks up some heat before dropping a knee on the knee! Cover, TWO! Pac toughs it out but Lethal covers again, TWO! Lethal argues the count, the ref says it is a fair count, so Lethal drags Pac around by the leg.

Lethal stomps away on Pac’s leg, and Rampage returns to single picture as Lethal steps through. Pac kicks but Lethal blocks that, and now Lethal steps through on that leg. Pac kicks again, Lethal blocks again, but then Pac kicks Lethal away! Lethal comes back, trips Pac, and steps through, but into a cradle counter! TWO!! Lethal escapes, gets around, back suplex! Pac lands out, so Lethal handsprings, but Pac SHOTGUNS Lethal while he’s upside-down! The fans fire up while both men are down! Sonjay coaches Lethal but the fans rally for Pac. A standing count starts, Pac drags himself up with ropes to stand at 5.

Pac storms up, blocks a shot to ROCK Lethal! Pac ROCKS Lethal again and again, then SOBATS! KICKS! SOBATS! Pac runs, to SHOTGUN BOOT! Lethal is dazed and Sonjay is worried as Pac goes up a corner. Pac watches like a hawk, to MISSILE DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Lethal stays in this and Sonjay coaches him again. The fans rally for Pac as he watches Lethal rise again. Pac waistlocks but Lethal fights the lift. Lethal trips Pac, powers through, but Pac kicks and kicks and kicks! Lethal lets go, but he KICKS Pac’s leg out! Lethal drags Pac up, for a SHIN BREAKER! Then DRAGON SCREW! Then Lethal steps through, for the FIGURE FOUR!!

But Pac goes up to get a leg! Lethal CLUBS away on Pac, then drags him up top. Lethal reels Pac in, but Pac fights the lift! Pac back drops Lethal away! The fans fire up and Pac adjusts. Sonjay stresses out as Pac aims, but Sonjay gets on the apron!

Pac hops down, runs up and BOOTS Sonjay down! The fans cheer, but Lethal is lurking! Lethal runs in, Pac dodges, but Lethal switches to SNAP GERMAN! Lethal handsprings, but Pac sidesteps to run! But Lethal still hits a CUTTER! But that wasn’t lethal enough, so Lethal handsprings again! LETHAL- NO, Pac dodges to LARIAT!! And then, BRUTALIZER!! Lethal is caught, he QUITS, Pac wins!!

Winner: Pac, by submission

Pac makes Lethal suffer a few seconds longer before letting go. That’s what Lethal gets for calling The Bastard a shmuck! Pac is going to be in the Men’s Owen Hart Tournament, will he win it all to go All In for the AEW World Championship?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, even with an extra squash match for the fun of it. Cage of Agony are definitely rolling, not sure they’ll be going for the trios titles while a Heel faction like Bang Bang Gang has them, but Cage, Kaun & Liona would definitely be a tough challenge for them. And I really liked that they segued from Satnam’s squash win to Lethal’s great main event with Pac. Great win for Pac to build momentum towards the Owen Hart Cup, I do like the possibility of Pac being in the main event of All In. Whether Pac is facing Ospreay or Swerve for the world title, he’ll give us great promos in the build and an awesome match in Wembley.

Great match from Rocky and Shota, and a great win for Shota. There might be something in the works for Forbidden Door, but I don’t see Shota getting in on title stories in AEW. Really good promo from Deonna and Rosa, and their No DQ match is going to be awesome stuff. That match can really go either way, but something tells me that Deonna wins. As it stands, we’ve got two Face champions in the Women’s Division, and that won’t change after Forbidden Door, so Deonna is a very strong Heel to go after Storm or Mone. And speaking of, great opener out of Storm VS Windsor, which I clearly thought was gonna be the main event but oh well. Still a good showing for Windsor and a good win for Storm, and Storm has momentum going to Forbidden Door, though she surely isn’t losing.

My Score: 8.7/10
