AEW All-Atlantic Championship: PAC VS Trent Beretta!

The Bastard is all fired up because he just finished out Rampage with Death Triangle! But he also did so the same way he did against Orange Cassidy! Will it be hammer time once again? Or will nothing stop Trent from avenging his Freshly Squeezed best friend?

The introductions are made, the All-Atlantic belt is raised, and we see if a double champion can win a double header!

The bell rings and Trent fires a forearm! Pac gives it back, fans fire up as they go back and forth! Trent gets the edge, he ROCKS Pac then runs, but Pac ROCKS Trent back! Trent and Pac fire more forearms again, Trent gets the edge again, and then Trent runs again. But Pac BOOTS him! Pac runs, Trent ROLLING ELBOWS! Trent then clotheslines Pac out of the ring! Fans fire up as Trent PLANCHAS! Direct hit and Trent rains down hands! Fans fire up as Trent stalks Pac around the way. Trent drags Pac up, CHOPS him, then Trent refreshes the count. Trent scoops to SLAM Pac on the floor! The count climbs but Trent puts Pac in.

Trent stalks Pac along the ropes and ROCKS him! And again! And again! The ref reprimands and counts, Trent lets off at 4. Trent runs in to DROPKICK Pac out of the ring! Trent keeps after Pac, drags him up, puts him in, but Pac hurries out the other side. Trent goes out to CLUB Pac, puts him in the ring, but Pac goes out the other side. So Trent runs in to SPEAR Pac! Fans fire up again as Trent drags Pac up and in! Trent aims from a corner, and BLINDSIDE KNEES Pac down! Cover, TWO!! Pac survives and Trent is annoyed. Trent stalks Pac but Pac bails out again. Fans rally for Trent but Pac SUPERKICKS him down!

A ring count starts while Pac catches his breath. Trent sits up and crawls, but Pac clears off the timekeeper’s table! Pac confiscates the table, brings it closer to the ring and ramp, then hurries after Trent. Trent BOOTS Pac! Trent puts Pac on the table, rains down fists, then he goes into the ring to go to the ramp! Fans fire up as Trent lines up a shot, runs, but Pac hurries away. Fans boo but Trent WRECKS Pac with a dropkick! Trent goes out to drag Pac up and put him in the ring again. Trent climbs up the corner but Pac hurries to anchor him. Trent CLUBS Pac down, adjusts, but Pac springs up to get at Trent! SUPERPLEX!!

Fans fire up while AEW goes picture in picture! A standing count starts, Trent stirs and the ref checks him. Trent is okay to continue, he and Pac slowly sit up. The count continues, Pac and Trent are on opposite ends at 3 of 10. Pac storms over to stomps Trent down! Pac digs his boot in, lets off as the ref counts, and then he stomps Trent again! Pac digs his knee into Trent now, the ref counts, but Pac lets off at 4. Pac snarls and he stalks Trent to the ropes. Pac puts Trent on the ropes to CHOKE! Pac lets off at 4 and the ref reprimands him. The ref warns Pac to listen to him about the count, but Pac goes to Trent in a corner.

Battle of the Belts 4 returns to single picture, fans sing, “OH~ He is a Bastard~!” and Trent CHOPS! Pac eggs Trent on, Trent CHOPS but Pac CLUBS him. Pac whips corner to corner hard, Pac runs in but Trent DOUBLE STOMPS him down! Fans fire up while both men are down and a standing count begins again. Pac clutches an arm as he gets up. Trent CHOPS Pac again! And ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Pac swings but into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Trent holds on, he drags Pac up again, to HALF ‘N’ HALF! Pac got some air from that suplex! Trent snarls and grits his teeth as fans rally up. Trent runs in at the corner, to back elbow!

Trent then TORNADO DDTs! Cover, TWO!! Pac survives, but Trent’s on the right path like Orange Cassidy was in his own match. Fans rally up and Pac crawls to the apron. Trent keeps him from getting away, but Pac throws a body shot. And an elbow! Pac whips but Trent reverses to send Pac into buckles! Trent then runs to LARIAT Pac inside-out! Fans fire up for Trent as he glares at Pac. Trent storms up, grabs Pac’s legs and YANKS him up, into a PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!!! Pac survives again and Trent is beside himself! Fans chant, “This is Awesome!” while Trent thinks of what to do next.

Pac crawls away to the ropes at the ramp side, and goes to the ramp. Trent follows after, brings Pac up, but Pac suplexes, OFF THE RAMP AND THROUGH THE TABLE!!! DC loses its mind over that one, and the ref hurries to check both men! Somehow, Pac and Trent are okay to continue, but Pac has a cut on his shoulder. Pac drags Trent up, puts him in the ring, and fans rally as hard as they can for Trent as Pac climbs. Pac aims, for the BLACK ARROW, onto knees!!! Trent gets to the corner, he fires himself up and runs in at Pac, but Pac KICKS the Spear down!! Pac drags Trent up but Trent cradles! TWO!!!

Pac and Trent crawl after each other, fans again say “This is Awesome!” Pac kicks Trent down, goes up the corner, but Trent trips him up! Trent climbs up behind Pac, and he half nelsons! SUPER HALF ‘N’ HALF!! Cover, TWO!!! Pac survives and DC cannot believe it! Fans love “A E DUB!” as Trent Alabama Lifts, but Pac fights it to a STANDING BRUTALIZER!?! Trent drops to the mat but he kicks and reaches out! Pac keeps pulling on the hold but Trent gets the ROPEBREAK! Pac lets go in frustration, and fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” But this has to end somehow, and Pac thinks on how to do that.

Pac goes outside, and he grabs the bell hammer again! He sits on the apron, Trent grabs at him, HAMMER TIME in the back suplex!! Cover, Pac wins!!

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

That’s three times Pac has used the hammer to win!! But ORANGE CASSIDY storms out to the ring! Cassidy fires off fists on Pac! Security hurries to stop him but he gets loose to get at Pac again! Fans rally for Freshly Squeezed but Pac scurries away. The Bastard still has both his belts, but if he keeps having to resort to such underhanded tactics, will he soon lose them both?

 

Backstage interview with The Jericho Appreciation Society.

As Chris Jericho told Tony Schiavone on commentary during Pac VS Trent, the ROH World Champion went and got Daddy Magic and Cool Hand Ange. Schiavone notes this Wednesday on Dynamite, it will be Chris Jericho VS Bryan Danielson Round 3, and it’ll be for the ROH title. There was some controversy, however, in the tag match win over Bryan Danielson & Daniel Garcia. Matt Menard says yes, that’s true. He tells Daniel Garcia, “We understand that there might come a time in a man’s life when he’s gotta leave the nest, he wants to go it alone. But we think you jumped the gun, because you ate a giant, steaming piece of HUMBLE PIE!”

Angelo Parker says, “He really did. He really did. Look, Daniel, it’s been nice seeing you go out and do your thing, right? But it’s time to come home. And don’t worry, bud, I think I can speak for everybody, man. We’re not mad. We’re just disappointed.” Jericho says yes, they are disappointed, but they’re also family. “These guys are like your two dads, and I’m like your older brother.” But sometimes, an older brother needs to teach a lesson. They taught Garcia that lesson in sports entertainment. Schiavone says, “You mean ‘systematic cheating.'” Jericho tells Schiavone not to say that. It was NOT cheating! It was a guideline on how to become a world champion.

Jericho tells Bryan now that speaking of world titles, Jericho will continue to “desecrate the legacy of Ring of Honor in Toronto,” Jericho will “pillage the legend of Bryan Danielson,” but not as The Wizard, nor the Demo God, but as the return of Lionheart Chris Jericho! Jericho will walk out of the arena in Toronto still The Ring of Jericho Champion. The Ring of Jericho Era has begun. All hail the Ocho!

 

Claudio Castagnoli speaks.

“Next week, when AEW makes its long awaited Canadian debut, there will be a huge ROH match in Toronto. On one side, my good friend and Blackpool Combat Club teammate, Bryan Danielson, against one of our worst enemies, Chris Jericho. Chris, don’t you think I forgot how you won that ROH World title. If Bryan Danielson wins, one of my best friends, I’ve known him for over 20 years, we’ve wrestled all over the world, and I would love to do it one more time with the ROH title on the line. But no matter who wins, I’ll be waiting to bring honor back to the ROH World Championship.” Who will the Swiss Superman be aiming for after Dynamite in Toronto?

 

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

As the undefeated streak grows, so does the ego. #ThatBitch is 38-0 and confident she’ll reach 39, but the optimistic powerhouse wonders: what would happen if Jade’s precious streak were to end? Will Willow be “The One?” Or just another one on the long, long list?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see another chapter written in Jade’s growing legend!

The bell rings and the two tie right up. Jade powers Willow to a corner, the fans rally and the ref counts. Jade lets off and talks some trash. Willow frowns, they tie up again, and Willow powers Jade back! The ref counts, Willow lets off and she eggs Jade on. They tie up again, go around, Willow headlocks but Jade powers out. They RAM shoulders, Willow grins but Jade talks trash. They get forehead to forehead but then Jade backs up, to kick low! Jade CLUBS Willow, talks some trash, and then brings Willow up. Jade bumps Willow off buckles, EuroUppers, then snapmares Willow. Willow is right up to SHOTGUN!

Willow back body blocks, spins around to clothesline, and then she snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Willow frowns, stalks Jade to a corner, and Willow runs in but Jade elbows back! Jade runs, Willow dodges and tilt-o-whirls to then shove Jade out! The Baddies hurry to back Jade up and fix her hair, but Willow DIVES! Jade got outta there so the Baddies take the hit! Fans fire up with Willow and she storms over to ROCK Jade! Willow then wheelbarrows, but Jade SMACKS Willow off steel steps! Fans are torn but Jade talks a lot of trash as AEW goes picture in picture.

Jade drags Willow up, smacks her off the apron, then pushes her into the ring. Willow crawls, Jade takes time to flex, and Jade stalks Willow. Jade kicks Willow around, drags her up, and Jade snap suplexes! Then she kips up and fires up! Jade eggs Willow on, then she kicks Willow around. Jade EuroUppers Willow down, and Willow gets to a corner. Jade storms up, CHOKES Willow on the ropes, then lets off as the ref counts. The ref warns Jade, Willow staggers over to throw a forearm! Jade CLUBS Willow down and clamps on a chinlock. Jade leans on the hold but fans rally as Willow endures. Willow fights up, but Jade throws her down!

Jade taunts the fans cheering for Willow, then drags Willow up to chinlock again. Willow endures as Jade leans on the hold. Fans rally and Willow fights up but AEW goes to break.

BOTB 4 returns and Jade is showing off doing push-ups. Willow is in a corner, Jade dribbles but runs into a LARIAT! Willow starts rallying and fans fire up! Willow CLUBS away on Jade, whips her to ropes, but Jade reverses. Willow ducks ‘n’ dodges and then tilt-o-whirl RANAS! Jade flounders into a corner, fans fire up with Willow and she powers up to run in and CHOP! Jade sits down, Willow runs corner to corner again to CANNONBALL! Willow pushes Jade to the drop zone, goes up the corner, and MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Jade is still in this but Willow brings down the straps!

Fans fire up as Willow drags Jade up. Willow gut wrenches but Jade elbows free. Jade runs but Willow dodges the boot! Willow tilt-o-whirls again but Jade makes it a POWERSLAM! Jade fire sup, chicken wings, JADED!! Cover, Jade wins!

Winner: Jade Cargill, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

And that is number 39! But “EXCUSE ME!!” Oh no, Vickie Guerrero is here! Vickie smiles at Jade, because Nyla Rose snatches the belt! Jade is furious but Nyla runs away with it! Literally! The Baddies pursue, but will the Native Beast hold the title hostage until she gets her own shot?

 

Backstage interview with Stokely Hathaway, Ethan Page and Matt Hardy.

Lexi Nair says there is a No Physicality Agreement in effect, and Hardy speaks first. “Why’re you two following me around like you’re my shadows? And why do you continue to stick your noses in my business?” Ethan says that’s done, don’t worry. We all saw what Rush did. Rush is a good boss, unlike Hardy. Rush laid down the law, he told Private Party they had to show up to work and do their jobs, and he even threatened his own employees with a lawsuit! All this contract tampering stuff- It’s NOT contract tampering! Why do they keep throwing that in his face? Stokely says Hardy doesn’t know? They have it right here! Exhibit A, Jose’s iPad!

Stokely shows us the video of Hardy talking with Private Party in 4K! Wow~! Oh, yes, they’re talking, but that’s not tampering! Hardy genuinely likes Private Party and he just wants what is best for them! Stokely points out Hardy is sweating and stuttering because he’s lying! He’s telling Duck Tales on national TV. Ethan tells Hardy to keep on lying. Hardy says if these two continue to stick their noses in his business, he will DELETE them off their faces! Oh, delete, huh? Stokely keeps Ethan back. This ain’t no copy office, talkin’ ’bout deleting. The Firm leaves, but will Hardy decide to take some executive action of his own?

 

Backstage interview with Hook.

Lexi Nair is with the FTW Champion, and notes that last week on Rampage, The Trustbusters presented him with an envelope. Has he looked inside? Hook holds it up. Is it open? What’s inside? Hook RIPS IT UP! Lexi can’t believe it! He doesn’t even know what’s in there, and he outright refuses!? Will the Trustbusters make the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil pay for that?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next Wednesday!

AEW Dynamite in Toronto is going international with an All-Atlantic Championship rematch! Orange Cassidy gets another shot against The Bastard, Pac! Will everyone be more wary of letting Pac grab the ring bell hammer this time? Will we see a Freshly Squeezed All-Atlantic Champion crowned in Canada?

 

Toni Storm & Hikaru Shida speak.

The Interim AEW Women’s World Champion says, “Last month, it was supposed to be and Shida against Britt Baker & Jamie Hayter, but Britt decided to take the easy way out. She attacked Shida backstage like the coward that she is. But guess who’s back? And guess who’s back for blood? Shida’s back and she’s coming to get you.” The Full Metal Warrior tells Britt, “How many times must you try to stop me? I always come back stronger. And next week, you’ll find out!” A big tag team grudge match is set, will the Storm & the Sword strike down the Doctor and the Hayter?

 

ROH World Tag Team Championships: FTR VS The Gates of Agony w/ Prince Nana!

When the Embassy attacked Wardlow after his AEW TNT Championship defense on Dynamite, Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood made the save! Toa Liona & Bishop Kaun weren’t intimidated, and now they’re coming after one of the THREE tag team titles FTR holds. Will the Gates of Agony soon be gilded and glorious? Or will they learn to #FearTheReign?

As FTR make their entrance, the Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten, are ringside to mock them in a really bad FTR cosplay. The Ass Boys have stated they’re gonna skip FTR in line for the AEW World Tag Team Championships, but are they cruisin’ for a bruisin from these tag team champions?

The introductions are made by Bobby Cruise, banged up as he is from Jericho’s attack on him. The ROH titles are raised, and Battle of the Belts 4 ends with a big finale!

The teams sort out without upholding the Code of Honor, and Kaun starts against Dax. Fans rally for FTR as Dax and Kaun circle. They tie up, go around, and Kaun’s height gives him the advantage to put Dax in a corner. The ref counts, Kaun lets off with a shove, and he resets with Dax. They tie up again, Dax wrenches, but Kaun powers out. Dax runs Kaun over, things speed up, Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Kaun blocks the hip toss to LARIAT Dax down! Kaun grins and he drags Dax around. Kaun rains down fists, Dax gets away and they scrap in a corner. Dax CHOPS Kaun, CHOPS again, then EuroUppers!

Dax brings Kaun around to ROCK with a haymaker. Dax whips, Kaun reverses but Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges and slides to kick and NECKBREAKER! Fans fire up, Liona gets in but Cash backs Dax up. FTR fires off haymakers on Liona, and they send him tumbling out of the ring! Nana stops Liona from getting right back in and Liona is pissed! Dax drags Kaun up to snap suplex! Tag to Cash, and Dax gives him a boost for a LEG DROP! Cover, ONE!! Kaun is tough but Cash EuroUppers him to a corner. Cash CHOPS, fans rally for FTR and Cash EuroUppers again. Cash whips corner to corner, Kaun reverses, but Cash goes up and over to keep moving, only for Kaun to LARIAT!

Fans rally, the Ass Boys taunt FTR, but Kaun drags Cash up. Kaun CHOPS Cash, stalks him along the ropes and he tags Liona. GOA mugs Cash, Liona scoops to SLAM Cash! Liona runs to FALLING HEADBUTT! Nana taunts Cash and Liona drags Cash back to CLUB away on him. Liona digs a claw into the shoulder, but Cash fights up. Cash throws elbows but Liona HEADBUTTS him down! Liona whips to then scoop but Cash sunset flips! Liona stays up to SIT on Cash! Fans rally for Cash but Liona tags Kaun. GOA double whip Cash hard into the corner, then Liona whips Kaun in for a SPLASH! Feed to the BELLY2BELLY! Kaun covers, TWO!

Dax jumped in but the ref has him go back to his corner. Kaun drags Cash up from the apron but Cash fights the suplex! Cash HOTSHOTS Kaun, fans rally for FTR, but Liona grabs Cash. Cash fires off body shots but Liona whips Cash into railing hard! Liona then runs, but Cash dodges to send Liona into railing! Fans fire up and “Fake TR” take selfies while AEW goes picture in picture.

Cash drags himself back into the ring and he crawls for his corner. But Kaun trips Dax off the apron! Kaun gets in, Cash cradles him! TWO!! Kaun staggers away, Cash runs in but is popped up to a fireman’s carry! AIR RAID CRASH! Cover, TWO! Dax was ready again but the ref has him back down. Kaun drags Cash up to throw him out, and Kaun distracts the ref so Nana can get some stomps in! Dax storms over that way but the ref intercepts him! Dax grabs a chair but the ref gets him to put it down. Dax points out what Nana was up to but too late, Nana runs off and Liona puts Cash in the ring hard. Kaun covers, TWO!

Kaun stomps Cash against ropes, digs his boots in, then lets off as the ref counts. Kaun tags Liona, but Cash fights back! That’s still 2v1, a CHOP sits him back down. Liona drags Cash up to pie face him around. Liona soaks up heat, CHOKES Cash on the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. Dax is pissed again, but the ref keeps him back. The ref is wary of Nana, though, so Nana stays back. Liona looms over Cash, Cash throws body shots, but Liona CLUBS Cash back down. Tag to Kaun, he stays between Cash and Dax and facelocks to grind Cash down. Cash endures, fights up, and powers up! He pushes Kaun back towards the FTR corner!

Kaun powers Cash away from the FTR corner, but Cash just powers up again! Cash is almost there, but Kaun throws him down by his hair! Kaun looms over Cash, ROCKS him with a right, then stands him up for another one! Kaun facelocks to grind Cash down again and Nana tells him to squeeze! Cash endures, fights up, and he powers his way towards the FTR corner! BOTB 4 returns as Cash atomic drops! Kaun lets go but RAMS Cash into the GOA corner! Kaun RAMS into Cash more, tags Liona, but Cash fires off forearms and elbows! He DECKS Kaun but Liona shoves Cash back to the corner. Liona runs in but Cash dodges! Liona tumbles up and out!

Fans fire up as Cash crawls his way over, but Kaun gets a foot! Cash hops, Kaun reels him in, but Cash lands out of the back suplex! Cash ducks under to hot tag Dax! Fans fire up as Dax the Ax JABS and JABS and DECKS Kaun! And DECKS him again! Liona CLOBBERS Dax! Liona whips Dax for a SAMOAN DROP! Cover, TWO! Dax is still in this and Nana argues the count. Two is two, fans rally for FTR but Liona says thumbs down! Liona drags Dax up, prepares that thumb, but Cash grabs it! Liona shoves Cash away but Dax gets free. Dax goes to the GOA corner but Liona grabs him with both hands to put him up top!

Cash runs in but Liona HEADBUTTS him down! Liona turns around, Dax CROSSBODIES, but into Liona’s arms! Cash MISSILE DROPKICKS Liona over! Dax covers, TWO!! Kaun returns, dodges Dax once but Dax DECKS him the second time! Dax brings Liona around, tags Cash, they double whip but Liona breaks the line! Liona CROSSBODIES but FTR ducks! Liona crashes ‘n’ burns right outta the ring! FTR drags Liona up onto the apron, through the ropes, DOUBLE DRAPING DDT! Fans fire up but Kaun tags in! Kaun runs in, fireman’s carries Cash, BOOTS Dax, but Cash slips off. Kaun switches, shoves, but Cash ducks.

Cash is tripped up by Liona just being there like a lump! Cash kicks Liona down, but Kaun fireman’s carries for the GUTBUSTER DROP! Cover, TWO!! Cash survives and fans rally up again! Kaun argues the count but two is two. The ref checks Liona, he’s somehow okay, and fans rally for FTR. Kaun drags Cash up, Dax helps block the German Suplex and he tags in! Cash slips out underneath, then feeds Kaun to Dax, Dax lifts and Cash goes up, SPIKE PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Liona drags Dax off in time! But Cash fires off hands! FTR throws haymakers, double whips, but Liona is too big for a Big Rig!

Liona shoves Dax away but FTR goes after him with haymakers again! They shove, then try again! Liona is still too big! Liona CLUBS Dax, UPPERCUTS Cash, HEADBUTTS Dax, and roars! Liona runs, but Dax uses that for the BIG RIG!! Fans are thunderous but Kaun CLOBBERS Cash! Dax gets around, O’Conner Roll but Nana distracts! The champs would’ve won by now!! Dax swings on Nana but Nana grabs him! Kaun storms up but into a BOOT! Dax then sends Kaun into Nana! Down goes the prince, Dax backslides Kaun, FTR wins!

Winners: FTR, by pinfall (still ROH World Tag Team Champions)

But the Embassy still wants to fight! They go after FTR, Liona CHOKES Cash in a corner, and here comes Brian Cage to add on! Fans boo but now even Nana gets shots in! Cage drags Cash up while Liona HEABUTTS Dax! But “THIS IS WAAAAR~!” The AEW TNT Champion storms right in and he fires off haymakers on everyone! But that’s still 3v1! Cage and Liona are big, but Wardlow still RAMS Cage into a corner! Wardlow fires hands on Liona but even Nana gets shots in, it’s 4v1! Kaun mocks the fans cheering for Wardlow, but here comes SAMOA JOE! The ROH World TV Champion DECKS Liona, HEADBUTTS Kaun, then dodges Cage to JAB and JAB and JAB!

Joe clotheslines Cage up and out of the ring! #WARDJOE helps out FTR against the Embassy, will this one end up being some kind of 4v4 war?


My Thoughts:

A really good special here, especially for following up Rampage on a long night of wrestling. Great use of Pac closing out Rampage to have his match with Trent open this hour. Great stuff out of that match, too, but even without Pac using a hammer to tip the scales in the Trios title match, I think Pac was gonna use the hammer again here. Cassidy coming back was a nice little surprise, and we’re going to get a great rematch for Dynamite in Toronto. I was sensing Cassidy getting the belt to feud with Ethan “Anti-Comedy Gimmicks” Page, maybe that happens now? Ethan, Stokely and Hardy have a good promo to set up their own match, that should be good stuff.

Good promo from the JAS to hype up the story with Garcia and Bryan, and good promo from Claudio, as well. Jericho VS Bryan can probably go either way, but with Jericho wanting to take on all former ROH World Champions, I feel like #THEOCHO has to continue past Bryan and Claudio. Also, there are plenty of other ROH based dream matches, like Jericho VS Jay Lethal or Jericho VS Samoa Joe. Good “promo” from Hook. I figured he wasn’t going to accept anything from The Trustbusters, and now he can basically rip through the faction to power himself up more. Hook can finally have some longer matches with Daivari, Sonny Kiss, and even Slim J and “Jeeves Kay,” but he and Parker Boudreaux would definitely have a Brock Lesnar VS Goldberg type of short but hard hitting match.

Good promo from Shida & Storm to call out Britt & Hayter, that tag match will be a lot of fun. It will also be a great way to set up Storm VS Hayter for the interim title, that’s just a logical move. Jade VS Willow was great stuff, and at least Jade didn’t win with help from the Baddies. Nyla stealing the belt seemed a bit silly but I suppose she and Vickie will do whatever it takes to get Jade to accept a challenge. That match can definitely happen at Full Gear because win or lose, that’s going to be historic. Jade can go to 40-0 while still champion, or her first loss happens on a huge stage.

And of course, really good stuff out of FTR VS GOA, and even the Ass Boys cosplaying to mock FTR. There was a bit of a rough spot in the middle as I think they were all a bit tired, but they pushed through and finished it off. GOA looks strong in defeat, but of course The Embassy gives us a repeat from Dynamite. I don’t think Nana will actually compete, maybe he enlists a new faction member so we can get a big 4v4 tag.

My Score: 8.7/10

Both men rise up, Jeff kicks and TWIST- NO, Sammy slips free to torture rack, GO TO HOSPITAL! Cover, Sammy wins!

Winner: Sammy Guevara, by pinfall

Jeff’s nose was already busted by the Shooting Star Press, that GTH definitely made it worse! Jeff’s losing streak continues, but WILL HOBBS is here to get Sammy!! SPINEBUSTER!! And then the spineless Don Callis saunters out here to applaud this. Hobbs says he told Sammy he’d get him, and now, WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!! The fans boo but the Powerhouse stands over Sammy. Will the Don Callis Family look to end Sammy’s career once and for all?

 

Backstage interview with Brian Cage & Prince Nana.

Renee Paquette is with The Machine ahead of the huge match announced for next Wednesday Night Dynamite. Cage, Swerve & Samoa Joe VS Hangman, Hook & RVD. Is Cage going to keep his sights firmly on Hook in this match? Nana says there Renee goes, all these questions. She’s moving real spicy. But Cage says he’s got something to say! It doesn’t matter who he teams with, it doesn’t matter who Hook teams with, all that matters is he gets Hook. Cage says he’ll be real with Hook. Hook doesn’t belong here. “I think deep down, you don’t even wanna be here. You come in here as some fab flavor of the month.

“And the fact that I go out there and they cheer your name, people want to see you, people wanna see you perform, they buy your merchandise and not Brian Cage’s, yeah, it pisses me off. This is what I love. This is what I wanna do. And everybody cheering for you, when they should be cheering for me… I’m what a wrestler should look like! I’m what a wrestler is! And the fact that I take a back seat to you, week after week, I’m sick of it! And next Wednesday, as I said, it doesn’t matter who your partners are, you’re getting your ass beat.” The Machine has issued an ultimatum, will he, The Realest and THE AEW World Champion crush the Cowboy, the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and the One of a Kind?

 

Private Party speaks.

Isiah Kassidy says, “Allow us to reintroduce ourselves in case you don’t know, but you probably should know, but it’s all good. It’s all good.” Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, and their personal AEW security, “Cheesecake.” They are Private Party, AKA the future AEW Tag Team Champions. And since 2024 started, they said they were gonna put all teams on notice. And guess what they’ve been doing? Shooting straight to the top! They are in the power rankings! Top five, top five, no one better alive. When it comes to Private Party, they talk the talk, walk the walk, and wherever they go, it is litty litty in the city. Wait, what?

Zay makes it a song and Quen joins in. Litty, litty, litty in the city! Well, we’ll work on that, Cheesecake. For now, they’re heading out to have some fun. Will Quen & Kassidy be waiting on the other side of Revolution to challenge whoever holds the gold?

 

Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley says, “Well I am in a pissy mood now. We’re gonna ruin our reputations as gentlemen, as ambassadors for this great sport, spending extra time after a match teaching a lesson to this FTR, a lesson they should already know. Cuz never in the history of time has it ever been a good idea to provoke the Blackpool Combat Club. But you know what they say: You can’t fix stupid. But you can choke it. FTR, they are the standard bearer, they are the benchmark of great tag team wrestling week in and week out, on a nightly basis. A team all these young teams look up to and aspire to be.

“You don’t think we know tag team wrestling? You don’t think we know tag team wrestling in and out? You don’t think we are every bit the artists when it comes to tag team wrestling that you are?” Moxley and Claudio can read each other’s minds? What is Moxley thinking right now? Claudio says it’s Renee’s glutes. And? And how when you’re good, you tell everybody. But if you’re great, people tell you. BCC don’t talk about being #TopGuys, wearing stars on their gear, telling everyone how good their matches are. BCC don’t care. They don’t have to. They get results! They take pride in what they do. They don’t play this, they are this.

Moxley says that is exactly what he was thinking. See you Wednesday, FTR. Will Moxley & Claudio prove who the real top guys are around here?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho.

Renee is with the Runaway, and she notes the “moving parts” in her life right now. Last week, Ruby ditched Saraya, and now Angelo Parker has, uh, requested time alone with her. What’s she gonna do? Before Ruby can answer, in step Saraya & Harley. Saraya forgives Ruby. And Harley forgives Ruby, too. Oh, they forgive her? The thing is, Saraya, Ruby ain’t sorry. Oh so it WAS Parker who- Ruby says before Saraya starts, she needs to say this. Ruby knew. She knew the whole time that this thing that happened to her, Saraya was behind it. Ruby is hoping that maybe it was because Saraya was doing what she thought was best for Ruby.

But Ruby’s a grown-ass woman! She knows what is best for her, and right now, that’s space. Especially from Saraya. Ruby heads out, Saraya tells Harley it’s time to end this. Harley knows what to do. She brings out her “knife.” That’s a soup spoon. Oh, she’s played knife-spoon before! Okay, time to go. Saraya leads Harley away, just what is going to happen between the Outcasts next?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Rampage!

Back at its regular time of 10 PM Eastern, we will see Anna Jay VS Mariah May! Will The Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show? Or will Toni Storm’s biggest fan continue her win streak?

 

Six Man Tag: Dustin Rhodes & The Von Erichs VS Romero Crews, Shimbashi & Hitt!

When AEW is in Texas, it’s only natural that we’d see this trio combination happen! Will the legacy of the Rhodes & Von Erichs be unstoppable? Or will there be a Texas sized upset here tonight?

The trios sort out and Dustin starts against Hitt. Hitt’s a big man, and as he and Dustin tie up, Hitt puts Dustin on the ropes. Hitt throws body shots, whips, but Dustin stops and UPPERCUTS! Dustin bumps Hitt off buckles, tags Ross, and they whip Hitt to drop and DROPKICK! The fans fire up with Ross, Shimbashi tags in but Ross arm-drags him down! Ross grinds the arm, tags Marshall, and the brothers double whip. They DOUBLE ELBOW Shimbashi down, Marshall clamps on a headlock, then Dustin tags in. Marshall hands off Shimbashi but Shimbashi ROCKS Dustin! Shimbashi mocks the Von Erich claw, then tags in Crews.

Shimbashi, Hitt & Crews mug Dustin, then Crews taunts the Von Erichs. Crews whips, Dustin turns things around to a dragon sleeper! CROSS RHODES! Cover, but Hitt & Shimbashi attack! The Von Erichs get in, and they clamp on IRON CLAWS! Dustin gets Crews up, and we get FINAL RECKONING and DOUBLE CLAW SLAMS! Cover, Dustin’s team wins!

Winners: Dustin Rhodes & The Von Erichs, by pinfall

And it was only natural that the Texans would win here! Will these three stick together to go after some trios titles?

 

Backstage interview with “Timeless” Toni Storm.

Renee is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as Luther and Mariah May. Renee brings up Deonna Purrazzo’s reaction to Wet Ink, and while it was very emotional, she didn’t mince words. What is Storm’s reaction back? Storm laughs it off, and Mariah joins in. Then Storm drags Mariah down and has the arm! “Is this what you want? Is this the move you wanted?! Huh?! This one?! Really?” Storm says no, she’ll give Deonna some of this! ANKLE LOCK! Mariah taps out and Storm says this is what you’ll be seeing! Storm tells Mariah good job. Mariah smiles, and Storm tells Deonna, “No one likes a drama queen, so piss off!”

Storm storms off, Luther nods and laughs, and Mariah follows after. Is Storm going to lose her mind before losing her title? Or will it be that much more of a tragic end to Storm’s Hollywood story at Revolution?

 

Darby Allin speaks.

“Sting coming back to wrestling, going undefeated as a team for years, and finally winning the AEW Tag Team Championships. It should’ve been a beautiful moment for Sting and his family, but you stole it. You disrespected Sting, you beat us down, you beat his sons down! I really don’t think you guys understand what you got yourselves into. But that’s our bloodstains on your white suits. And March 3rd, we’re coming for your blood. Sting’s last match, at Revolution.” The stakes have been raised again, because now the title match is a TORNADO TAG! Will either side survive when nothing can stop them?

 

Queen Aminata VS Anna Jay!

While she is one step closer to the ROH Women’s World Television Championship, the Queen of Guinea is still looking for that breakout win here in AEW. Will Aminata go on a Rampage and finally have it all? Or will the Queenslayer live up to the nickname?

The bell rings, the ladies shake hands to show sportsmanship, and the two circle. They tie up, Aminata waistlocks but Anna wrenches. Anna wristlocks, but Aminata spins through and wrenches around to wristlock back. Anna wrenches through to wristlock, waistlock, but Aminata pries the hold open, Aminata wrenches, steps over, gives that twerk attack, and then wristlocks again. Anna wrenches, steps over, and she gives the twerk back! The fans fire up and Aminata runs in. Aminata waistlocks, Anna wrenches but the hook kick is blocked! Aminata hits a hard takeover and fans fire up again!

Anna tries to headscissor but Aminata fights that off. Anna fights up to her feet, powers up but can’t power out as Aminata holds on tight. Anna RAMS Aminata into a corner, then ROCKS her! Anna runs in to LEG LARIAT! Anna then reels Aminata in, puts her in the ropes, and hits a DRAPING BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO! Aminata stays in this but Anna stays on her in a corner. Anna ROCKS Aminata, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Anna digs her boot in, the ref counts, and Anna lets off at 4. Anna bumps Aminata off buckles, stands over her, then puts her on ropes to CHOKE! Aminata endures, the ref counts, and Anna lets off. Anna storms up but Aminata hits low. Anna ROCKS Aminata, reels her in, and snap suplexes! Cover, ONE!! Aminata shows her toughness, but Anna SMACKS her off the mat. Anna talks some trash to the fans, then SMACKS Aminata off the mat again. Anna storms after Aminata in a corner, and ROCKS her again. Aminata turns things around to ROCK Anna! Anna dodges to ROCK Aminata again!

Anna stands Aminata up, runs her corner to corner and bumps her off buckles! Anna then goes to another corner for another buckle bump! Anna ROCKS Aminata, then bumps her off more buckles! The ref checks on Aminata but she shoves Anna away. Anna comes back to ROCK Aminata, then throws body shots. Anna runs Aminata into the corner and bumps her off buckles again! Anna CHOPS Aminata, snapmares her, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Aminata fights up out of a chinlock. The fans rally, but Anna CHOPS! Aminata CHOPS back! Anna CHOPS again, so Aminata DOUBLE CHOPS! Anna falls, staggers up, and Aminata wrenches to reel her in! Snap suplex! Anna staggers, into a LARIAT! Aminata gets Anna up, spins her, snapmare and PENALTY KICK! The fans fire up with Aminata and she pounds the mat. Anna goes to a corner, Aminata runs in, HIP- NO, Anna dodges! Anna runs up but Aminata dodges! Aminata ROCKS Anna, sits her down, and goes side to side to BOOT WASH! Aminata drags Anna to a cover, TWO!!

Anna survives and the fans fire up again! Aminata drags Anna up and Alabama Lifts, but Anna fights! Anna wrenches to HOOK KICK! Then she clinches, FLATLINER! Cover, TWO!! Aminata survives and Anna is beside herself! Anna drags Aminata up, and QUEEN- JAWBREAKER! Aminata runs, but Anna gets around, QUEENSLAYER!! Aminata is in the body scissors, but she pushes back to a cover!! TWO!!! Anna lets go in time, but Aminata HEADBUTTS her down!! Cover, AMINATA WINS!!

Winner: Queen Aminata, by pinfall

And there it is! From her tournament win last night on ROH to a huge win here on Rampage, the Queen of Guinea is ready to reign! Anna shows respect with a handshake, will Anna find her own way back up the ranks?

 

Backstage interview with Willow Nightingale, Kris Statlander & Stokely Hathaway.

Renee congratulates Willow on her big win over Skye Blue from Dynamite. She has to ask, though, is Willow happy with the win? Honestly… What the freakin’ hecc, Stoke?! Willow feels that was not what they talked about! There was no trust in her, no ethical/moral high ground! Kris cools things off. This was probably her fault, there should’ve been a team meeting. They didn’t talk about “being nice,” and Stokely’s probably never cheated on a match before. Stokely parrots all of this and Kris has him stop. For now, Kris will make sure this doesn’t happen again. Willow’s fine with that. No cheating. Shake on it? Kris literally shakes Stokely.

Willow says no, a handshake. Stokely shakes Willow’s hand, and finds she’s strong. Don’t forget it. The trio is good, for now. Will #BigStoke remember he is a manager, not the insurance policy?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is once again with the Runaway, now joined by Cool Hand Ange. Ruby has been through a lot tonight already, but Parker did ask for this time. Renee will leave it to the two of them. Parker thanks her as she steps aside. Parker knows this is a weird place to be doing this, but this seems to be the only time they’re ever alone, so he’ll get right to it. Happy Valentine’s Day! He gives her a white rose, and says she has him feeling things he doesn’t know how to wrap his head around. There was that whole thing a few weeks ago with Harley and getting cake thrown in his face. He thought he lost her.

That’s why he slipped her the note. He thought it was the only way to reach her. And then he saw what Ruby did in the match that night, and Parker realized Ruby must feel the same. So he’ll go for broke and just- Ruby asks first if he wants to get a drink with her. Can’t tonight because of her redeye flight, but what about next week? Yeah, that works for him. Then pick her up on Wednesday, “Cool Hand.” Ruby leaves him with the flower but keeps the candy, and Parker smiles. The romance is still alive, but will Saraya & Harley try to kill it?

 

12 Man Tag: Bang Bang Scissor Gang VS The Dark Order & Team Triple J!

That’s right, Rampage is ending with a HUGE tag match! The AEW World Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions are united, but will they truly mesh in the ring? Or will Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds, John Silver, Jay Lethal, Satnam Singh & Jeff Jarrett be grabbing up a lot of golden tickets tonight?

The teams sort out and we get Jay VS Jay as Switchblade starts against Black Machismo. They circle, tie up, and go around. The fans rally as the Jays end up in a corner. White has Lethal but Lethal turns that around, only for White to turn that back around. The ref counts, White lets off, but Lethal headlocks! White slips out to headlock, Lethal wrenches and headlocks to hit the takeover. White headscissors, Lethal kips free, and rolls reverse while fans chant “Let’s Go, Jay!” White kips free but Lethal headlocks again. White powers out to headlock, then facelock, then headlock again. Lethal powers out and Jarrett gets a cheap shot in!

White swipes at Double J but he gets away, and Lethal CLOBBERS White! Lethal stomps White, Sonjay talks trash, and Uno tags in. Uno & Lethal mug White, but white CHOPS Uno! White CHOPS Uno again, then storms up to put Uno in a corner. White CHOPS and fans fire up! Uno flounders, White tags Colten Gunn. Colten wrenches, whips, then says Guns Up! Colten hits a SPLASH! Then he runs up again to DROPKICK! Fans fire up with Colt and he drags Uno over. Tag to Max Caster, he brings Uno up and around to scoop SLAM! The fans fire up as Caster tags Bowens and sets Uno up for SCISSOR ME TIMBERS!

Bowens says “EVERYONE Loves the Acclaimed!” The rest of the gang BLASTS Triple J & Dark Order, and then Rampage goes picture in picture.

BBSG set up all around the ring, but they get dragged right out! The brawl is chaotic all around ringside! White SMACKS Lethal off the desk, Caster ROCKS Jarrett, Silver is after Bowens, Billy helps out there, and then BBSG regroup. The sassy six throw ’em up, for the GROUP GUN SCISSOR~! Things cool down and Bowens fires off on Uno. Bowens CLUBS Uno down, hears the fans rallying, and he brings Uno over to tag in Austin. White gets the fans singing “Oh~ Scissor Me Daddy~!” Austin JABS, JABS and then does his two step for the HAYMAKER! Uno flounders, Jarrett protests, but the ref reprimands.

Austin stands Uno up in a corner, whips him corner to corner, only to send him right back to where he started! Austin high-fives his dad, then runs up, but misses the splash! Uno hurries to the corner, Jarrett CLOBBERS Austin! Reynolds tags in, he stomps away on Austin, and then bumps him off buckles! Tag to Silver, and they double whip Austin for the double drop toehold! Then they double basement dropkick! Cover, ONE!! Silver stays between Austin and the BBSG, then hauls Austin up. Austin throws counter punches, but Silver ROCKS him! Silver RAMS Austin into the corner, tags Lethal, and they mug Austin.

Lethal stomps a mudhole in, Sonjay talks trash, and Bowens gets mad. The ref keeps Bowens back but that lets Uno CHOKE Austin! Lethal brings Austin up as Rampage returns to single picture. Lethal puts Austin in the corner, CHOPS him, then brings him over. Tag to Jarrett, they double whip but Austin reverses! Jarrett still gets a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Jarrett puts Austin on ropes, to STRADDLE ATTACK! Fans boo as Jarrett struts! Jarrett then tags in big Satnam so he can CLUB Austin down! Satnam HEADBUTTS Austin to a corner, then stands him up. Satnam TOSSES Austin halfway across the ring!

Jarrett kicks Austin from the ropes to keep him in the ring, and Satnam stands Austin up. Another TOSS!! Satnam then BLASTS the BBSG! Billy stays up, he shoves Satnam but the ref has to back him down. Satnam hauls Austin up, taunts Daddy Ass, then brings Austin over. Tag to Reynolds, and Reynolds dares Austin to crawl to daddy. Reynolds whips Austin but Austin BLASTS Lethal and Uno! Austin goes up and over, hot tag to Billy! Billy rallies on the Dark Order with haymaker after haymaker! Kick to Reynolds, “SUCK IT!” FAMOUSER!! Uno runs up, blocks a kick, hand that to the ref and hits a NECKBREAKER!

Bowens is in to fire off Rock Paper SUPERKICK on Uno! But Silver BOOTS Bowens! And KNEES him at the ropes, to then GERMAN SUPLEX! But Caster BACKHANDS the Meat Man! But Satnam storms up after The Acclaimed! He gets each on by the neck, but Austin & Colten set up, FLYING HAYMAKER! The fans fire up but Lethal returns to handspring and LETHAL INJECTION!! Colten is in, he gets Lethal with COLT 45! But Jarrett wrenches into THE STROKE!! But White has Jarrett, BLADERUNNER!! White says SUCK IT, but Reynolds grabs White! Billy grabs Reynolds but Reynolds sends Billy into White!

White falls, Reynolds rolls Billy up, TWO!! Billy kicks low, runs and another FAM- NO, Reynolds dodges! But then Billy dodges Reynolds, Austin gets in, 3:10 TO YUMA!!! Cover, BBSG wins!!

Winners: Bang Bang Scissor Gang, by pinfall

That was fast and furious, and even with one miscommunication, the Acclaimed & Bullet Club Gold made it work! Will this six pack prove to be unstoppable?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here, stuffed to the brim for just a one hour show. Though, that’s probably because they lose two hours with no Collision. Great story progress for Ruby Soho through the pair of promos tonight. Ruby has confirmed she’s distancing herself from The Outcasts and growing closer to Parker, and that doesn’t sit well with Saraya. Harley is doubling down on being the crazy one, I’m thinking we get Ruby VS Harley to then give us Ruby VS Saraya at Revolution, Parker in Ruby’s corner for it all. Really good promo from Moxley & Claudio to hype up their match with FTR, and a great promo from Brian Cage to not just hype the Six Man and his feud with Hook, but to really help us understand where Brian Cage comes from as a character. He isn’t just Swerve’s heavy, he wants to be a top star, too.

Good promo from Private Party, kinda wish they’d done this one sooner. Still not sure why they aren’t feuding with the Hardys yet… Great promo from Toni Storm with her going extra nuts at Mariah’s expense, but also of course Mariah forgives Storm when Storm compliments her. Great match from Aminata VS Anna, and I was just thinking that this would be the right time for Aminata to win in AEW after her win in the ROH Women’s TV title tournament. AEW is clearly seeing Aminata’s full potential, she might even win the TV title. But at the same time, maybe she doesn’t win the ROH TV title so she can compete for an AEW title on the other side of Revolution.

Great opening match from the No Disqualification match, but ouch, that knee into Jeff’s nose. He was bloody right away, but a broken nose seems to be the extent of it. Sammy meanwhile getting beat up by Hobbs was a good story move, Sammy will surely want payback some time before Revolution. At the same time, Sammy could make for a good ally to Ospreay and Fletcher against the Don Callis Family as that feud continues into the Spring and Summer.

And great 12 Man Tag for the main event, though it wasn’t quite as frantic or chaotic as I expected. But still, a great detail of Billy being sent into White and White being a bit upset about it, but BBSG still wins. I would hope they don’t switch things into Acclaimed VS BCG so quickly, we’ve seen Acclaimed beat the Gunn sons plenty over the years. At least make this last until the super group either branches out for other titles or a trio gets a title match with BBSG. There really can be a lot of fun had with this big group, I hope they don’t squander it.

My Score: 8.8/10

Jon Moxley VS Dax Harwood!

The Blackpool Combat Club has been daring people to step up, and FTR did just that! They brawled on Collision and now The Maniac and #DaxTheAx battle here on Dynamite. Will Moxley prove the BCC are the elite of All Elite Wrestling? Or will Dax show everyone that FTR are still the #TopGuys?

The bell rings and the fans rally up for “FTR! FTR!” Dax stares down Mox, they circle and feel things out, and the fans start dueling. Dax and Mox still circle, tie up, and go around. Dax puts Mox in a corner, Mox turns that around, and the ref counts. The two scrap and let off, then Mox flips Dax off. Dax smirks, resets with Mox, and Dax headlocks. Mox gets free but Dax gets around to shove Mox, and then Dax flips Mox off! Fans fire up as the two reset, tie up, and go around again. Mox puts Dax in a corner, then goes up to taunt Dax.

Dax endures, the fans duel, and Dax shifts to roll Mox up, TWO!

Dax steps through the legs! Mox fights Dax off with kicks from below! Dax falls back, Mox storms up to clothesline Dax up and out! Dax tumbles to the floor and fans fire up again. Moxley storms out after Dax, brings Dax up and claws the eyes! Then Mox RAMS Dax into the railing! Dax tumbles up and over, Mox soaks up the heat from fans, then he grabs a chair. Mox sets that up near the railing but Dax CHOPS and CHOPS and JABS in return! Moxley ROCKS Dax, and again, but Dax hits back! Dax hurries up and over but Moxley kicks low! Mox trips Dax hard, then uses the legs to CATAPULT Dax into a POST!

Fans are feeling that one as Dax flops around! Moxley storms over while the ring count climbs. Moxley snarls as he hears it pass 5 of 10. Moxley drags Dax up, puts him in the ring, then slides in at 8. Moxley stalks Dax, climbs up the corner, and he DIGS his nails into Dax’s head! Moxley rains down fists, the fans count along, but Dax stops it at five! Dax brings Moxley out to SITOUT POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO! Mox is still in this but Dax brings him back in. Dax suplexes but Mox blocks! Mox and Dax go to ropes, Dax suplexes Mox and himself up and out of the ring! They hit apron and then the floor while Dynamite goes picture in picture!

The ref checks both Moxley and Dax, they’re both somehow okay to continue. Dax and Moxley slowly rise, Moxley getting to his feet first. Moxley staggers around, Dax slowly stands, and both men jump in at 9 of 10! The fans cheer as both men go forehead to forehead. They stand up and go haymaker for haymaker! Dax staggers, but he comes back to ROCK Moxl! Mox ROCKS Dax! They go back and forth with shots, faster and faster, then Mox trips Dax to a FIGURE FOUR LEGLOCK! The fans fire up and Dax endures! Dax reaches out, punches at Moxley’s legs, but Mox puts on more pressure! Dax falls back, it’s a cover! TWO!!

Dax reaches out, and he CLAWS Moxley’s face! The ref reprimands but Mox lets Dax go. Mox KICKS Dax’s leg out, then steps through, to an INDIAN DEATHLOCK! Dax endures again, and he CHOPS! And CHOPS!

The shots go fast and furious and then both men wobble! They DOUBLE SLAP and they both fall back! The fans fire up again, and Moxley finds his way to a corner. Moxley steadies himself, Dax rises up, and Dax storms up to CHOP! Then he hoists Moxley up top!

Dax sits Mox up to CHOP! Dax climbs up, but Moxley reels him in! TOP ROPE GUILLOTINE!! The ref reprimands and counts, but Dax fights the hold, so Moxley CLAWS Dax’s back! Moxley then ROCKS Dax!

The fans are torn as the BCC shows no respect to FTR! Moxley then gets Dax back in the REAR NAKED CHOKE! And Claudio puts Cash in a CROSSFACE! Cash endures and Dax fades out! BCC lets FTR go, showing no mercy. Will they do the same to all teams that stand in their way and the top spots in AEW?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Blackpool Combat Club!

With all of the AEW VS CMLL action, especially between the BCC and the luchadores, that on March 29th, Moxley, Claudio, Bryan and even Wheeler Yuta are going down to Arena Mexico to battle Mistico, Volador Jr, Blue Panther y Ultimo Guerrero in an 8 Man Tag! Will AEW return the favor with a win South of the border?

 

Backstage interview with The Don Callis Family.

Renee Paquette is with Konosuke Takeshita, “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, and Don Callis himself as she notes Takeshita’s incredible roll. He beat Darby Allin, has two wins on Kenny Omega, and then did the unthinkable: He tapped Chris Jericho out with Jericho’s own move, the Walls of Jericho. What is next for the DCF now? Callis says they’re a victim of their own success! No one wants to wrestle Takeshita, Takeshita is the best rope to rope wrestler in the world. No one wants to wrestle Hobbs, either! The DCF has all the talent, and Revolution is coming. The best wrestler in the world needs to be on that PPV! The DCF needs to be on that PPV!

But they can’t find the talent for Takeshita, so Callis realized, he’s got all the talent right here! He looked within the family, and will give us a match that will have us all talking not just for years, but for decades! It will be DCF VS DCF when we see Konosuke Takeshita VS… Will Ospreay! Wait, Callis is willingly pitting “family members” against each other? Well, when Callis was growing up, Papa Callis would have a few drinks late at night, then make Don and his brothers fight in the backyard, every thing was fine with them. But the best part of this is that no matter what, the Don Callis Family wins.

And at the end of Revolution, no one will be talking about Sting! Everyone will be talking about Hobbs, Takeshita, Ospreay, Fletcher and the Don Callis Family’s Match of the Decade! A huge move by the malevolent mastermind, but will Ospreay appreciate this big money move by Callis?

 

Wardlow VS Barrett Brown!

The Undisputed Kingdom’s War Dog continues his warpath up the ranks, and surely has one eye on the AEW World Championship Triple Threat that’s looming. Will the Maestro of Mayhem have a symphony waiting for the winner on the other side of Revolution? Or will one of Austin, Texas’ own catch him off guard?

Adam Cole is on commentary for this, wanting to keep an eye on his Kingdom’s war machine. The bell rings and the fans chant for “WARD~LOW! WARD~LOW!” Wardlow stares Brown down, Brown storms up but Wardlow then powers him to a corner! Wardlow glares at Brown, the ref counts, so Wardlow drags Brown out to haul him right up top! WAR HAMMER already!! Wardlow grins and flexes while the ref checks. Wardlow admires himself on the tron and Cole smiles, and somehow Brown is still conscious! Cole says let’s wrap this up, so Wardlow gets Brown up, for a LAST RIDE!! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

Cole says it was a pleasure to talk with everyone, though he barely said a thing. Wardlow scrapes Brown out of the ring, will he have his hands on gold soon enough?

 

AEW shares footage of The Young Bucks arriving earlier today.

And despite it being an entire week since their heinous attack on Sting & Darby Allin, Matthew & Nicholas Jackson still wear the blood-stained suits! They said it’s a lovely day, and they’re ready to get to work. But will Darius & Dante Martin humble the arrogant EVPs on the road to Revolution?

 

AEW TNT Championship #1 Contender’s Match: Adam “Edge” Copeland VS Daniel Garcia!

Though Christian Cage would never admit to it, it’s clear he fears both men in this match. The Patriarchy had to cheat to beat the living legend, and then they lost to the Red Death. Will Revolution get Rated R when Edge comes back for revenge? Or will Garcia prove he is the greatest wrestler of his generation by defeating one of the greatest of all time?

“Daddy Magic” Matthew Menard is on commentary to support Garcia. The bell rings and the fans rally up as the two circle. They feel things out, knuckle lock, then Edge ROCKS Garcia with a forearm! Edge KNEES Garcia to ropes, fires more forearms, then bumps Garcia off buckles. Edge fires more forearms, but lets off as the ref counts. The fans rally for “DANNY! DANNY!” and “ADAM! ADAM!” Edge wrenches and WRINGS Garcia’s arm out, and Garcia writhes. Edge clamps on the CROSSFACE but Garcia rolls it to a cover! ONE, so Garcia rolls and has a leg! ANKLE LOCK! Edge flails and scrambles to the ROPEBREAK!

Garcia lets go, Edge of course knows a lot about taking an Ankle Lock. The fans rally as the two reset and circle again. They tie up then fire forearms! Edge headlocks, Garcia body shots and powers free, only for Edge to run him over! Things speed up, Garcia hurdles, but Edge SPLASHES on the dropdown! Cover, TWO! Garcia kicks at Edge so Edge KICKS Garcia in the side! Edge stalks Garcia to a corner, then CHOKES him on ropes! The ref counts, Edge lets off, and the fans continue to duel. Edge drags Garcia up, headlocks, but Garcia wrenches out to elbow low. Garcia headlocks, Edge powers out, and Edge runs Garcia over again!

Things keep moving, Garcia drops down then hurdles again. Garcia drops down again, but avoids the splash! Garcia has the Oklahoma Roll, TWO! Garcia sweeps the legs and covers, ONE! Edge runs into a drop toehold, and Garcia uses that to hook the leg! Garcia then hooks up both legs, CLUBS Edge on the back, then does his dance! Then he STOMPS both knees! Edge writhes, but Garcia drags Edge up to fire forearms. Garcia CHOPS Edge to a corner, whips him corner to corner, but Edge reverses. Edge runs up but into a BOOT! Garcia hops up the corner to body scissor and he fires off elbow after elbow!

Edge wobbles, Garcia goes up again, and CROSSBODIES, but into Edge’s arms! Edge shifts to SHOULDER BREAKER! Garcia writhes while the fans fire up, and Edge drags Garcia back up. Edge whips Garcia hard into buckles, and Garcia falls back as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Edge rises, has the ref move aside, and he runs to baseball slide dropkick Garcia outta the ring! Edge rests, does a backstroke, then mocks Garcia’s dance! Edge adds his own bit to it, then fetches Garcia. But Garcia fires off haymakers! Garcia whips, Edge reverses and Garcia is sent into steel steps! Edge stares Menard down, stalks Garcia, and Edge waves hi to fans in the front row. Edge has them move aside as he stands Garcia up and pushes him against railing! The ref reprimands as Edge fishhooks Garcia’s mouth! Edge lets off at 4 then soaks up the cheers and jeers. Edge borrows a fan’s sunglasses, then BREAKS them!?

Edge drags Garcia up, puts him in the ring, and then watches Garcia sit up. Edge runs up to KNEE Garcia in the back! Garcia writhes, but Edge slaps him around. Edge clamps on a chinbar armlock combo but Garcia endures. The fans rally, and Edge pushes that forearm into Garcia’s face. Garcia fights up, pries at the hold, then bounces to pop free! Dynamite returns to single picture as Garcia fires hands, but Edge BOOTS Garcia down! Edge stalks Garcia to a corner, puts him in a drop zone, and then goes up top. But Garcia rises to go after Edge! Edge and Garcia scrap as Garcia climbs, and Edge HOTSHOTS Garcia down!

The fans are torn as Edge storms his way back up the corner. But Garcia springs back up to trip Edge! Edge is stuck up top, and the fans fire up as Garcia goes after him! Garcia has a leg, SUPER DRAGON SCREW! Edge clutches his knee and the fans are thunderous as Garcia rises. Garcia fires hands on Edge, backs Edge down with shot after shot, then stomps away in the corner! The ref counts, Garcia digs his boots in, but still lets off so he can run side to side, BOOT WASH! Garcia drags Edge up but Edge fights the saido! Garcia still tries, but Edge CLUBS him! So Garcia gets the leg! DRAGON SCREW, and then a KNEE JAMMER!

The fans fire up and Garcia snarls as he looms over Edge. Garcia gets the bad leg, and drops an elbow right on the knee! And then another elbow on the knee! But Edge shifts around to go after an arm! FUJIWARA ARMBAR! But Garcia powers that to get an STF!! Another move Edge has felt in the past, and he reaches out! Garcia crabs an arm, half nelson modification! Edge still fights, headlocks out of the nelson, and then facelocks. Edge brings Garcia up, but Garcia wrenches out! Edge CLUBS away on Garcia but Garcia hits back! They brawl, the fans fire up, and Garcia kicks the bad leg! Garcia grabs it but Edge throws hands!

Garcia INVERTED DRAGON SCREWS the leg! The different direction catches Edge, and the fans fire up again! Garcia goes up a corner as Edge rises up. Edge hurries to CLUB Garcia! Edge climbs up but the bad leg slows him down. Garcia fires hands on that leg but Edge fires hands on Garcia’s back! Edge brings Garcia up, SUPER IMPALER!! Garcia writhes but Edge can’t make the cover! Edge crawls to a corner, rises up again, and the fans are thunderous! Edge aims as Garcia rises, and he runs in to- KNEE!! Garcia jackknife bridges, TWO!!! Edge escapes, scrambles to get Garcia’s arm, CROSSFACE!!

Garcia endures, reaches out, but NICK WAYNE ATTACKS! Killswitch/Luchasaurus is there with him, The Patriarch just screwed this whole thing up!! Nick stomps Garcia, Killswitchasaurus BOOTS Edge down! The fans boo as The Patriarchy mugs Garcia, with Christian Cage & “Mother” Shayna Wayne walking down the ramp. Captain Charisma saunters his way around the ring while fans boo as hard as they can, then he goes looking under the ring. Christian brings out two chairs! But Daddy Magic says NO! He takes a chair, now he and Christian have a standoff! But Luchasaurus CLOBBERS Menard from behind!

Fans boo again and Christian says that’s what Menard gets. The chairs are brought into the ring, Luchasaurus hauls Garcia up, JURASSIC CHOKE SLAM! Fans boo but then Nick drags Garcia onto a chair! Christian has the other, but then Edge gets in with a chair of his own! Edge JAMS Nick, JAMS Luchasaurus, then SMACKS Luchasaurus down! Edge and Christian have a showdown, the chairs CLASH and Christian is disarmed! Garcia gets to safety as Edge storms up on Christian! But Shayna LOW BLOWS Edge!! The fans boo but now Christian stomps away on Edge! Christian feeds Edge to WAYNE’S WORLD!

Luchasaurus hauls Edge up, EXTINCTION LARIAT! Fans chant, “Christian Sucks!” but he just smiles as he now sets Edge up on a chair! And he gets the other chair, tells Edge this is what he gets for still pursuing him, and then takes aim! CON-CHAIR-TO!!! The Patriarchy stand over the Rated R Superstar and Christian raises the TNT Championship. What lows won’t Christian sink to in order to hold onto that belt?

 

Samoa Joe is here!

The fans fire up for the AEW World Champion as he makes his way to the ring, ready for the face-to-face-to-face with his two challengers. The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” as he gets the mic. “My name is Samoa Joe, and I stand here proudly your AEW World Champion.” The fans cheer that, and Joe says tonight he comes with the spirit of apology. When he became champion, he reenacted the ranking system to make sure that only the very best victims were served up in front of him to destroy and continue his championship reign. “And everything was going so well, until last week when Hangman Adam Page and Swerve Strickland came out here, battled tooth and nail for 30 minutes, to a draw.”

Fans boo the draw, and Joe says somehow, someway, he thought the Championship Committee would kick those two to the back of the line. But no, they took a page out of the Texas playbook to make this match bigger and dumber. Fans are a little torn on that line, but Joe says it seems we reward mediocrity around here. And instead of telling those pretenders they don’t deserve to be contenders, now at Revolution, Joe finds himself in a Triple Threat. “Obviously a crime has been committed against me, and now there must be repercussions. So I guarantee you this: You send your two bright stars into the ring with me, and I guarantee I am hurting one, if not both of them! So they may walk in, but I guarantee they will both limp out.”

The fans fire up for that! Joe says that he stands here the AEW World Champion, and there is nothing anyone can do about that. But then “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” The fans fire up as Prince Nana leads the way for The Realest, doing his dance. Swerve already has a mic, and he steps into the ring. The fans chant, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Swerve tells Joe, “When we started this whole thing, like I said, this wasn’t supposed to be personal, right? But as we inch closer and closer to Revolution, and the more that you run your mouth, I can’t help but get the feeling it’s becoming personal.”

Swerve tells Joe that when Joe won the title, Joe said… The fans cheer as Swerve seems to need a second to think. Swerve then says Joe said that the new championship protocol was about people showing up with their reputation and with their resumes. And also that hunger is what defines the greats. Well then if you look at Swerve, you’re looking at one of the greatest of all time. Fans cheer that! “No one out hustles me, no one out works me, and no one out grinds me. So you need to check my resume, and while you’re at it, you should proceed to put some respect on it, as well.” Fans cheer for that!

Swerve says 15 YEARS, he’s been grinding up and down, all in the hopes that somebody would one day see Swerve and go, “Y’know what? One day, Swerve might go down as one of the best int he world currently. Maybe one day.” Swerve then says after this past year, he’s proven that today is that day! He’s gone toe to toe with former world champions, and with some of the best legends AEW has to offer. The same thing every time: Swerve is left standing, and the fans have only one thing on their mind: “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” And at Revolution, nothing changes! Except for one thing: the fact that Swerve will be holding the title above his head.

But then Hangman Page storms out shouting, “Hold on, hold on, hold on!” The fans are torn as The Cowboy says hey, first off, he wants to set the record straight! After last week’s match, he wasn’t mad. So when you write your weekly Dynamite reports, don’t put “Hangman was mad.” But everyone already knows that last week was BS! The fans are torn again, but Joe actually nods and agrees. Hangman says he signed a contract for a match to determine THE #1 contender to the World Championship, and the winner would be the contender. Swerve couldn’t do it! THIRTY MINUTES, and Swerve couldn’t do it!

So if this were up to Hangman, at Revolution, the match would be between two men who value and respect that title and everything that it stands for. Fans boo but Hangman says unfortunately, he doesn’t make the matches. So Swerve, you were “added” to this match. So Hangman wants to say something eye to eye and Swerve needs to hear it. Swerve says, “We gonna do this again?” Hangman says after everything Swerve has done to him, Swerve doesn’t deserve one second of Hangman’s time. Swerve doesn’t deserve for Hangman to give him five more minutes because he couldn’t get the job done! And Swerve does NOT deserve to be in this championship match!

But Joe steps in now. Back up, knock off the charades. This walking domestic dispute ends tonight! Joe knows what this is about. Each man thinks they can beat the other and just walk over Joe, but that’s not gonna happen! As far as they’re both concerned, he is Samoa Joe, and he’ll whoop both y’all’s asses!! Joe throws down his mic and storms out. Hangman and Swerve continue to argue, but will the numbers NOT spell disaster for Joe at Revolution?

 

Timeless Toni Storm presents… Wet Ink.

A beatnik jazz form of Seven Nation Army plays as the AEW Women’s World Champion asks, “What does this tuh-too remind me of? It reminds me of a girl I befriended because I felt sorry for her. A girl so naive, so needy, so desperate to make it, that she had my pity. You were my Young Girl, I showed you my ways. I brought you into Japan, I helped you sign a contract. I nurtured you on my bosom of brilliance, you suckled on my teet of talent. And now, you bit the tit that feeds you!” Storm is now in a tuh-too, er, uh, tattoo parlor with Luther and Mariah May, as she gets something put OVER the commemorative tattoo she and Deonna Purrazzo both have!

Storm continues to narrate, “Somewhere along the way, you forgot who you were. Thought you were the star of this story instead of just an extra. You want the old Toni Storm? Oh, you’ll get the old Toni Storm, and so much more. What do you do when you can’t change the past? You kill it!” The new tattoo? It’s a KNIFE going through the ducky!

Deonna Purrazzo responds.

Renee Paquette is now with The Virtuosa, having finished watching Wet Ink with the rest of us. Renee isn’t sure how she feels, so she can’t even imagine Deonna’s feelings. Deonna says that Toni Storm is what her family would call a yakkity yon. AKA, she talks too much. So Deonna will keep this short and sweet: “Toni, I’m gonna break your arm, b*tch!!” The leading lady may have crossed a line putting a dagger through Deonna’s heart, but will she lose that belt around her waist?

 

The Young Bucks step out of their stretch SUV.

They still haven’t changed out of the blood-soaked suits, and all they’ve done to prepare for their match is wrap their fists! Matthew Jackson says they’re gonna put on another banger, but are they taking the Air Wolf & Angel Dorado a little too lightly?

The Young Bucks VS Top Flight w/ Action Andretti!

The teams sort out and Nicholas starts against Dante. The fans rally for Top Flight as Dante stares Nick down. They tie up, Nick wrenches and wristlocks, but Dante goes to ropes. Dante flips through, WRINGS Nick out, and then dodges Nick to roll and headscissor. Nick shoves that away, Dante gets around to waistlock, but Nick switches and headlocks. Dante powers up and out, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then goes up and over as Nick runs in! Nick slides out, and he tells commentary to put respect on their names! Taz says he’s got them. Nick gets back in but Dante arm-drags him down! The fans rally as Dante grinds the shoulder.

Nick fights up, pulls Dante’s hair and whips, but Dante reverses. Nick avoids the arm-drag, but Dante avoids the kick! Dante wheelbarrows and arm-drags!

Nick runs in, Dante leapfrogs and Darius TOSSES Nick out! Nick ROCKS Darius back, but Darius sends up so Dante can CALF KICK Nick down! The Bucks regroup, the fans fire up, and Top Flight build speed, only for The Bucks to get out of the way. Top Flight just adjust course, but The Bucks dodge the dropkicks! The Bucks mug Top Flight, soak up the heat, then straighten up their suits. The Bucks shove Top Flight at the apron, but Top Flight jumps up and in, to then DOUBLE PLANCHA! Direct hit on both Bucks and the fans fire back up! Top Flight puts Matthew in, Dante bumps him off buckles and tags Darius.

Darius goes up and he DOUBLE STOMPS Matt’s arm! Dante snapmares Matt so Darius can basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! Darius whips, Matt reverses and Nick gets a cheap shot in! Darius DECKS Nick then BOOTS Matt! Darius dodges Nick ones, dodges twice, but Matt CLOBBERS Darius! Then he BLASTS Dante down! The fans boo but the Bucks soak it up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nick nods and Matt smooths out his hair. Matt drags Darius up, bumps him off buckles, tag to Nick. CATAPULT GAMANGIRI, and then the DOUBLE STOMP BACKBREAKER! Darius writhes, Matt talks to commentary, perhaps trying to smooth things over from Nick’s threat, and Nick clamps onto Darius with a chinlock. Nick throws off his suit jacket to drag Darius up and turn him, for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Nick drags Darius up to bump him off buckles, then he stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Matt tags in, and Matt CLUBS Darius. Darius throws body shots in return! Matt CLUBS Darius again, then BLASTS Dante back down!

Darius BLASTS Nick in return! Matt and Darius talk trash on each other, then Matt takes a swing! Darius ducks, gets around, atomic drop and a BULLDOG HOTSHOT! But Nick PENALTY KICKS Darius from the apron! The ref reprimands but Nick says that’s what Darius gets! Nick drags Darius up, puts him in, and Matt drags Darius around for haymakers. Matt whips Darius to the corner, runs up, but into BOOTS! Nick takes a swing, Darius dodges and Dynamite returns to single picture as Darius CLOBBERS Nick! The fans fire up as Darius ducks ‘n’ dodges Matt to LEAPING LARIAT! Both Bucks are down and the fans rally for Darius!

Darius crawls, reaches out, but Matt pulls hair to bring him away! Matt whips, Darius ELBOWS back! Darius uses the corner for the WALL RUN PELE! Matt is down again, Darius crawls over, hot tag to Dante! Dante rallies on Matt and then JUMP KNEES Nick! Dante whips, Matt reverses but Dante slips out, goes up and around, then GAMANGIRIS! SUPERKICK for Nick! Springboards CROSSBODY for Matt! Cover, TWO!! Matt escapes that deep stack but Dante fires up again! Dante drags Matt up, Matt shoves him away but Dante sunset flips! Nick storms in to keep Matt standing, but Darius sunset flips Nick! Double cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up as Top Flight clothesline Nick up and out! Matt runs in, Dante dodges but Matt CLOBBERS Darius! Matt fakes Dante out to DDT! Matt admits Top Flight is good, and he composes himself. Matt drags Dante up, ROCKS him with a right, then whips. Dante ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA! Dante BLASTS Nick back down, Matt flounders and Dante brings him over. Dante SPLASHES in the corner, Darius tags in and Dante whips Matt. Matt reverses but Darius gives Dante the boost to go up and over! Then Dante helps Darius TORNADO DDT! Cover, Nick breaks it!!

Nick then YANKS Dante into barriers! Darius runs in at Matt, but Nick holds onto Matt to stop the Monkey Flip! Matt then high stacks Darius, with feet on the ropes!! The ref sees that, Nick argues with him about it, but Matt pop-up LOW BLOWS Darius! Fans boo as the ref misses the bigger cheat! Tag to Nick, and the Bucks sit Darius up for E V P TRIGGER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winner: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

The abuse of power continues, but so does the Bucks’ chase after the AEW World Tag Team Championships. Tony Schiavone then joins Matthew Braun John & Nicholas Lee Jackson in the ring. He notes the big win, and Matt says “Undefeated this year, Nicholas! Holy crap! I think that makes us the top, unbeatable tag team in AEW.” Fans boo but Matt says he has reason to believe that after beating a team the quality of Top Flight, a great team really, it is safe to assume that The Bucks are the NEW #1 contenders! Wow, there’s already a graphic for that… Fans boo but Schiavone says Sting isn’t here to respond, because of the despicable, heinous act by-

Oh, despicable?! Heinous!? You guys just can’t stop yourselves! Matt has to sit at his desk every week and hear Schiavone talk trash on the Bucks! Every single week! Hey, Matt has to think that this might be a breach of contract! Publicly disparaging the EVPs?! That is unacceptable, bush league, and we all know it! Nicholas says that is a ONE THOUSAND DOLLAR FINE! Does Schiavone have a problem with that? DOES HE HAVE A PROBLEM!? Nick shoulder bumps Schiavone off his feet!! Matt takes the mic back, apologizes for his “hothead” brother, this doesn’t need to get physical. Just don’t let it happen again, Schiavone.

The Bucks get Schiavone’s hands to help him up, into an E V P- NO! Darby is here!! He rushes down with Sting’s black baseball bat! He runs the Bucks out of the ring, grabs the mic and shouts at them, go ahead and remind everyone of the original mission statement of AEW. It was “Change the World.” When Darby was homeless, he begged the Bucks for a job, but they saw nothing in him. He sat by while The Bucks hired their sh*t friends! All their stupid California crew! But thank God that there was an EVP with a sense of brains back then. And we ain’t talking Kenny Omega! Fans chant for “CODY! CODY!”

Darby says The Bucks did their little interview why they stuck with AEW. Why was that? It was because the schedule was light and the money was good, NOT because they wanted to change the world! Seems the original mission is dead! So much for this being AEW! This is All Friendship Wrestling. Think of that first episode: No Darby! But Brandon Cutler was there! What even!? Darby isn’t sure what kind of tussles the Bucks got into while they were homeschooled, but we’re talking Sting’s final match! The Bucks want to be Sting’s final opponents? Then they don’t know what they got themselves into.

We’re talking about a man who’s got nothing left to lose. Young Bucks VS Darby & Sting for the AEW World Tag Team Championships? “IT’S SHOWTIME~!” Darby says if the Bucks want it, they’ve got it! Will the Bucks take those titles off the Relentless Icons? Or will they get what they deserve instead?

 

Backstage interview with The Bang Bang Scissor Gang.

Renee Paquette is with Jay White, The Acclaimed & The Gunns, and says it seems things are going smoothly for these six. The merch looks great, too. So what is next for the super group? Well, Austin wants to welcome us to the BBSG Lounge! Bowens gives Renee a rose for Valentine’s Day, very sweet. Bowens then signals for Austin & Colten to keep cool, it’s just plutonic. Jay says back to the question, what is the goal for them? Well as she said, they’re running smoothly, have momentum, new merch, gold on all the waists, shoulders and in their possession. But they still need to test their cohesiveness in the ring.

Billy has an idea! How about this Friday- Austin cuts Daddy Ass off by suggesting a 12 Man Tag for Rampage! No one responds. Or… and this is totally Billy’s idea, a 12 Man Tag for Rampage! Everyone loves that idea! Billy says no big deal, he’s been doing this for awhile. Bowens says great idea, and BBSG rules the world! Because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed, BANG BANG! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! A massive open challenge is now set, what set of six will step to Platinum Max, Five Tool Bowens, Daddy Ass, his sons, and the Switchblade for Rampage?

PROGRAMMING REMINDER for Rampage!

Texas Death Match: Orange Cassidy VS Matt Taven!

With things escalating between Best Friends and the Undisputed Kingdom, yet Roderick Strong still wanting to wait until Revolution, the only way Freshly Squeezed can get revenge is by proxy! Will Cassidy crush one of the pawns on the way to the title match? Or will the AEW International Champion get beat to a pulp in the main event?

The bell rings and Cassidy runs right up! He and Taven brawl and the fans fire up! Taven shoves, Cassidy dodges and SHOTGUNS! Cassidy kips up and he stands off with Taven. Taven waves to the ramp, but that’s a fake out so Taven can CLOBBER Cassidy from behind! Taven CHOPS Cassidy to a corner, ROCKS him with a right, then whips corner to corner. Cassidy reverses, Taven goes up and over then keeps moving. Cassidy hurdles, keeps moving, but Taven DROPKICKS him down! Fans boo Taven but he says “III’M Matt Taven!” Taven CHOPS Cassidy, CHOPS him again, and then whips corner to corner.

Cassidy reverses, Taven goes under, ENZIGIRIS back, then hoists Cassidy up, a hard BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cassidy flops out of the ring, the standing count starts, but Taven storms after him. Cassidy is up at 4 of 10, Taven RAMS him into railing! Taven SMACKS Cassidy off steel steps, then whips him into more railing! Cassidy slumps down but Taven drags him back up. The fans cheer Cassidy on but Taven ROCKS Cassidy again. Fans want tables but Cassidy sends Taven into railing! Cassidy whips Taven hard into more railing, then storms up on him. The fans fire up as Cassidy whips again, but Taven reverses!

Cassidy LEAPS over the railing clean! The fans fire up, and then Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets! Taven is furious, he hurries out after Cassidy, but into a BOOT! Cassidy CLUBS Taven, CLUBS him again, then brings him into the crowd with haymakers! The fans fire up while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cassidy brings Taven up the bleachers with a headlock, throws some hands, then keeps bringing Taven along. Taven SMACKS Cassidy with someone’s water bottle! The brawling continues up to the second level, and Taven CHOPS! Taven stalks Cassidy, throws more hands, then ROCKS him. Taven shoves Cassidy down the bleachers to return to the ground level. Taven SMACKS Cassidy off barriers, then brings him along for more CHOPS! They end up near the stage now, and Taven SMACKS Cassidy off light trusses! The standing count starts, Cassidy rises up, but Taven has found a table! Taven sets that up right over an AEW logo.

Taven storms up on Cassidy, ROCKS him with a right, but Cassidy ROCKS Taven in return! Cassidy fires more hands but Taven knees low! Taven SMACKS Cassidy off the table, then follows him as he staggers around. Taven brings Cassidy back around, SMACKS him off the table again, then pushes him onto it. Taven throws down more hands, then talks trash to the fans. Especially the kid cosplaying Cassidy. Taven throws down more hands, then he goes up onto the stage! Taven soaks up the heat, talks more trash, probably calls them all Melvins, and Dynamite returns to single picture. Taven takes aim, to MACHO ELBOW through the table!

Fans lose their minds as both men fall with the table, the table is really more dented than broken. The standing count starts all the same, and Taven drags the table over to prop it up against the ramp! Cassidy stands at 8 of 10, so Taven reels him in! Snap suplex through the table! Cassidy writhes, his forehead is a bit bloody, and the count begins again. Taven paces but Cassidy stands at 6 of 10! Taven ROCKS Cassidy, pushes him onto the ramp, then lines up the shot. JUST THE TIP of the knee! Taven tells the fans off, then wants the count. The count begins, but Cassidy rises pretty fast! So Taven is on him already, to push him into the ring.

Taven storms up on Cassidy, scoops him, and hits a BACKBREAKER! And then a flip around into a DDT!! Cassidy is down, the count begins, and some fans are stunned he’s still moving! Taven finds another table! Taven brings that up, and props it against the commentary desk!? Cassidy DIVES, but Taven narrowly avoids the table he set up! The count is now on Taven while Cassidy has a crimson mask forming. Cassidy puts Taven in, but Taven hits the springboard FLYING CHUCK! Cassidy wobbles, flops off the apron, and Taven builds speed! Taven WRECKS Cassidy, but Cassidy doesn’t fall!

Cassidy wobbles, he leans on the table and marks it with his blood. Taven builds speed again, and he FLIES, through the table!!! Cassidy avoids disaster and the fans lose their minds! Commentary can barely be heard, their own desk taking some damage in that crash! Cassidy staggers his way over while the count is climbing. Taven rises up, he’s bloodied now, and he stands at 9.5!! “This is Awesome!” as Cassidy has… A box of chocolates? The card reads “To: OC. From: Chuckie T. XOXO.” The Kentucky Gentleman left a Valentine’s Day gift for his buddy and the fans fire up! Cassidy takes the gift into the ring, opens it up, and surprise! It’s not candy, but THUMBTACKS!!

The fans lose their minds as both men continue to lose blood! Cassidy staggers up, Taven is still down, the count begins. Cassidy goes out, to get a steel chain!? And then an even bigger heart shaped box!? But then Mike Bennett rushes out here to CLOBBER Cassidy! It was only a matter of time before The Kingdom stopped playing fair!

Bennett gets that box, and he SMASHES it right on Cassidy’s head! Bennett puts Cassidy in while the fans boo, and Bennett puts chair after chair into the ring! Taven flounders around, the ref reprimands Bennett but there’s nothing to stop this! The chairs are a pile, but wait! Here comes Trent Beretta! And much like Arnold in Terminator 2, he has a box of roses, that he then pulls a weapon out of! It’s a steel pipe! Bennett has a chair, he takes a swing, but Trent dodges to CLOBBER Bennett with the pipe! But Taven CHUCKS a chair into Trent! Taven hoists Trent to the top rope, drapes him out, FULL METAL CLIMAX!!

But ORANGE PUNCH for Taven!! And then BEACH BREAK onto tacks and chairs!!! Taven writhes but Cassidy isn’t done with him! Taven RIPS the pockets away!? Fans boo, that’s like taking a luchador’s mask! Cassidy wraps that chain around his fist, and because “IIIIIIII’M Matt Taven!” FULL METAL ORANGE PUNCH!!! Taven is down, the count begins, but here comes Roddy! Roddy aims at Cassidy, STRONG KNEE into Trent!! Trent takes the bullet for Cassidy, and Taven is still floundering around at 8 of 10! Taven is DOWN, Cassidy wins!!

Winner: Orange Cassidy, by technical knockout

The International Champion’s Best Friends came through for him and they thwarted The Undisputed Kingdom! But with Revolution fast approaching, is Cassidy going to stand a chance against the Savior of the Backbreaker?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Dynamite here, lots of big stuff going down. Toni Storm’s Wet Ink was very well done, clearly she’s been given a bigger budget compared to her early films because of how successful she’s been. And what a powerful move to (I assume legitimately) change her tattoo to stick it to Deonna. Speaking of powerful moves, Callis making Takeshita VS Ospreay happen for the hell of it, that’s going to be an awesome match. And it makes me think Ospreay and Fletcher are gonna break away from the Don Callis Family to get some United Empire stuff going in AEW. Then they can make it DCF VS Empire if they’re moving away from Jericho (and they probably should be).

Just as I was wondering why Bang Bang Scissor Gang wasn’t doing much, they show up to have a group promo and it was a lot of fun. A 12 Man Tag is going to be nuts, and it’ll certainly be like three different jobber tag teams like Outrunners, The Workhorsemen and Butcher & Blade because of course BBSG is winning. I would really hope one of the tag teams (Ass Boys or Acclaimed) call out The Kingdom’s Taven & Bennett for an ROH World Tag Team Championship match, and for the love of pro-wrestling, get these guys on ROH since Bullet Club Gold are the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions!

Moxley VS Dax was an awesome opener, great win for Moxley, and clearly BCC is turning Heel since FTR is sticking to Face. The tag match next week will be awesome, too, surely setting up the winners as tag title contenders for after Revolution. And of course we were officially given Darby & Sting VS Bucks for Revolution. Great tag match from Bucks VS Top Flight, and pretty good “abuse” of EVP authority for “Matthew & Nicholas” to use a simple 2-0 win streak as justification for the top spot. Darby had a great promo slamming the Bucks as sellouts, and now that the match is official, it is going to be awesome stuff.

Great match from Edge VS Garcia, but I should’ve figured it’d get “ruined” by The Patriarchy. It was ruled No Contest so that there wouldn’t be someone crowned the winner by disqualification, but after the Con-Chair-To to Edge, it feels like they might give Garcia the Revolution match. I say that because there shouldn’t be a Triple Threat, that’d make this too much like the world title story. Meanwhile, I don’t see Garcia winning the TNT Championship unless Edge thwarts Luchasaurus & Nick Wayne getting involved, maybe even Matt Menard since he stood up to Christian only to get knocked down by Luchasaurus. Honestly, I’d love if Garcia did win the title, then Christian VS Edge can be just about the grudge.

And speaking of the world title story, great promo from Joe, Hangman and Swerve. Seems we’ve gotten the double turn of Hangman and Swerve, despite Swerve doing what he did. But that is just how pro-wrestling works, where things are forgiven by the fans when the Heel turns Face. All that aside, the Six Man Tag set up for next week is going to be interesting because of how Hangman is becoming a Heel but RVD and Hook are still Faces, and then it’s hard to really say where Joe, Swerve and Cage are on the Heel-Face spectrum. Feels like RVD is taking the loss though, with Hook and Cage needing to be strong going into their FTW Championship match and of course Joe, Hangman & Swerve needing to stay even for their own title match.

Really good match from Willow VS Skye, and I find it interesting Stokely has come around to Willow so quickly. He helps her get the win, hard to say if she knew that or not, but it definitely feels like Willow and Kris will have to fight if either wants a shot at Julia and the TBS title. And then awesome main event in that Texas Death Last Man Standing Match. Matt Taven may be like if The Miz never went Hollywood with his gimmick, but he is still really good in the ring, proved himself in ROH, so him and Cassidy was the right move for the match. Still wish they’d be careful with blood, feels like Cassidy’s blading was overdone. And of course it got overbooked but great win for Cassidy here to keep himself going strong towards Revolution.

My Score: 9/10
