Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Renee Paquette is with the American Dragon at the “Mongo Position” as she asks him about having his first match since losing out on the ROH World title, and it being against the JAS’s Sammy Guevara. Bryan says if he’s being honest, he’s frustrated. Frustrated that he lost to Jericho. Frustrated that Garcia turned his back on Bryan and hit him with that title belt. And frustrated that Yuta talked back to Bryan last week in their interview together! Bryan knows a lot of people hate Sammy, but Bryan has no problems with him. Well, other than his smug face and his stupid vlogs.

But all this frustration pent up in Bryan, for Jericho, Garcia, and Yuta, as Yuta walks up to Bryan, all of this will be taken out on Sammy tonight. Yuta says good! He’s glad Bryan is finally mad! Cuz did he see what just happened? Claudio & Yuta beat Jericho & Garcia! Yuta tells Bryan that he isn’t Bryan’s son or some kid, he’s a “grown ass man!” So if Bryan has problems with Yuta…! Bryan and Yuta start shoving, Claudio gets in the middle of it and shouts “STOP!” Regal also steps in. Claudio says this is a great day, because Claudio just pinned the ROH World Champion. Yuta did great, too. On top of that, it is Yuta’s birthday. And, Bryan is gonna beat the crap outta Sammy.

But after this match, the BCC is gonna sit down and talk it out like adults. Alright? Bryan and Yuta accept that, and Bryan heads out. Is the BCC going to be able to stick together with the JAS getting under their skin?

 

A message from… The Elite?

Kenny Omega’s voice is heard saying, “Myself, Nick & Matt, we set out on a path to change the world.” Footage from the AEW press conference in January of 2019 and then of Dynamite’s debut has The Elite erased from the footage. Every pivotal moment of The Elite’s AEW career is being erased. Are they saying AEW can’t be AEW if there’s no Elite?

 

Backstage interview with The Jericho Appreciation Society.

Tony Schiavone is with the full JAS, with Sammy, Tay Melo & Anna Jay “A S” joining Jericho and the others. There are some mic problems, but obviously they’re upset after that loss to the BCC. Menard shouts if Schiavone saw what happened out there. Garcia says the “Blackpool Cheater Club” makes him sick to his stomach! Jericho asks, “Can you believe that a man like Claudio Castagnoli would accept victory when there is a baseball bat in the middle of the ring, the entire world to see…” Schiavone brings up that Jericho brought that bat to the ring. Yes, but it was in the ring when the BCC won!

Jericho says he’s fired up, and Garcia’s fired up, and all of the JAS is fired up! All bets are off! Jericho isn’t just after former ROH World Champions! He’s after former ALL ROH champions! Pure Champions! Tag Team Champions! Women’s Champions! Jericho doesn’t care! He issues an open challenge to ANY former ROH champion to face #THEOCHO! And it won’t be a pretty sight! Claudio, this will be on you! And Sammy says tonight, he’ll do what he always does, and put on a show like no one has seen before, because he is that damn good. He’s gonna beat Bryan’s ass, again! There’s a birthday present for you, Yuta!

 

AEW World Tag Team Championships #1 Contenders Match: FTR VS Swerve In Our Glory!

Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood are the TRIPLE Champions, having the AAA World, ROH World and IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team titles to their names, but they still want more. They’ve been sitting on the number one spot for months now, but must defend that before challenging The Acclaimed. Will FTR make everyone #FearTheirRise? Or will the Limitless House once again go for the gold?

Oh, look at that. The Gunn Sons, Austin & Colten, are doing their bad FTR cosplay again to taunt FTR. The teams in the ring sort out, but then The Acclaimed arrive! Fans fire up as Caster, Bowens and Daddy Ass chair scissor! They watch from the ramp, and we start with Cash and Swerve. The fans all sing, “Oh~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” but Swerve and Cash tune that out. They approach, feel things out, and Cash shoots in but Swerve pushes him away. They go around some more, tie up, and Cash puts Swerve in the corner. Swerve turns it around, but Cash arm-drags him away. Swerve dusts himself off and fans rally for the action.

Cash and Swerve feel tings out, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” Cash shoots in, gets around, headlocks and grinds. Swerve endures, fights up and headlocks back. Fans rally for “F T R!” as Cash powers out but Swerve goes up and over and gets around to O’Conner Roll and Eddy Gordo RANA! Cash stands up but Swerve does a dance and fans applaud. The Gunn Sons are annoyed as Swerve flicks a hair tie at Cash. Cash takes that to put his hair up. Cash and Swerve tie up, Cash wrenches and wristlocks, then hits a fireman’s carry takeover to tag in Dax. Dax kicks low, snap suplexes, and then drops a leg! Cover, ONE!!

Dax wrenches but Swerve throws a body shot! Swerve tags Keith and fans boo. Keith is a little surprised but he steps in to rush Dax. Dax tries to arm-drag but Keith is way too big!

Dynamite returns to single picture as Swerve throws hands and slaps Cash around. Swerve drags Cash over, tags Keith back in, and Gunn Sons are still upset. Cash throws hands and backs Keith down. Keith shoves Cash away but Cash kicks back! Cash rushes in, leaps, but Keith catches him! Dax and Cash reach out but they can’t make it! Keith RAMS Cash into the corner! Keith runs in but Cash dodges and Keith just gets buckles! Swerve tags himself in to stop Cash and bring him around! Cash reaches again and again, but he back drops Swerve away! Hot tag to Dax!

But the Gunn Sons are done playing! They beat up Cash and Dax! Fans boo but The Acclaimed run in to run the Gunns off! But the damage is done, we’re getting the third and decisive battle between The Acclaimed & Swerve In Our Glory! Will Caster & Bowens prove they are THE best tag team in AEW? Or will the titles soon return to the Limitless House?

 

Backstage interview with Saraya.

Renee is with “her girl,” and they’re both excited to be in AEW together. But then Britt Baker barges in to sarcastically say we’re all excited. But then Saraya stops Britt there, she’s not in the mood. Britt says Saraya’s the one who started this! Renee shouts over them both. This is insane! If they wanna talk about this, do it properly. Britt storms off, but will she and Saraya find a way to have it out?

 

AEW returns and Renee is on stage.

And she introduces… MJF! Norfolk goes nuts as Maxwell Jacob Friedman walks out. He has them cut his music, and fans chant his name. Renee starts but MJF cuts her off. “Ladies and gentlemen, the devil has arrived in Virginia! And I’ve got one solitary question, Virginia. We got any devil worshippers in the house tonight?” Fans cheer, and MJF asks the “ravishing” Renee, “all the disgusting poors watching at home would love to lay,” what she has for him. Well, tonight, Jon Moxley is putting his title on the line against Penta. Should he retain, then MJF will be facing Moxley for the title at Full Gear. How does MJF feel ahead of a match that monumental?

How does he feel about wrestling Moxley? MJF asks to borrow the mic and Renee hands it over. MJF asks, “You mean, how do I feel wrestling this guy.” And then he mocks Moxley’s strut, and then he mocks how Moxley talks, “ECK! MJF, at Full Gear, I’m gonna mash your bones, man. I’m gonna drink you blood. I’m gonna gargle your piss! Cuz I’m Jon Freakin’ Moxley!” Is that who we’re talking about? Yes, him… Well, Renee, in Virginia, MJF loves y’all. Even with all your shortcomings. But with all due respect, and he means that, “When I think of Jonathon, only one word comes to mind, and that word has got three letters, and it starts with an M. And that word is M-M-M-MID!!”

Renee says you can’t say “with all due respect” and then insult someone. Uh, with all due respect, shut your mouth. But listen… Last week, when MJF said he was gonna earn it, he meant it. Though, maybe he went outta control when he said he’d wrestle a whole match cleanly. Let’s just get that out of the way. He means relatively clean. He’s still MJF, let’s get real. But, there was one thing that got under MJF’s skin, and that was when “that disgusting, flea infested elderly rat, William Regal, decided to tell me that he didn’t use his brass knuckles because he needed to, but that he used them because he wanted to.”

MJF says Regal was alluding to the fact that MJF can’t beat Regal’s boy, Jon Moxley, without his Dynamite Diamond Ring. What do the fans think of that? The fans boo and MJF agrees, that’s BS. But he makes a promise here that for one night and one night only, at Full Gear, for the grandest prize of them all, MJF will NOT use his diamond ring. “Because, Will, I don’t need it. The only thing I’ve ever needed to be a success in my life is a grudge. And trust me, I’m chalked full of ’em!” MJF has taken all his grudges, mashed them down into one chip, and that chip is directly on his shoulder!

Come November 19th in his backyard, the metropolitan area of Newark, New Jersey, MJF ain’t fighting Regal! He ain’t fighting Moxley! He ain’t fighting Penta! MJF is fighting “every single sorry scumbag that ever told me I wasn’t good enough! And I am going to take this heavy chip off my shoulder and shove it down each and every one of their throats when I become your NEW AEW Champion of the World!” Fans fire up for that! MJF says it’s because he is a generational talent. But then Stokely Hathaway cuts him off? Stokely gets it! MJF wants Moxley at 100% at Full Gear, and trust Stokely when he says The Firm won’t lay a hand on that man.

MJF slaps the mic out of Stokely’s hand! MJF borrows Renee’s again to tell Stokely, “Perhaps you’ve gotten a little bit comfortable since you’ve known me for a very long time. So Virginia, we’re gonna cut Stokely some slack, huh?” Fans boo but MJF tells Stokely that “If Jon Moxley gets past Penta in the main event tonight, at Full Gear, I need him 110%, so him and Regal and all his weirdo fanboys have got NO excuses when I beat him in that ring! So you don’t go near him, you don’t lay a hand on him. Hell, you don’t even look at him. Or you’re fired.” Fans like the ultimatum, and Stokely smiles. Stokely leaves and MJF starts where he left off: he super over catchphrase.

Three, two, one, and fans say it with him! “Because MY NAME is Maxwell! Jacob! Friedman! And I’m better than you! And you know it!!” The Salt of the Earth actually wants to do this as close to the right way as he can, will he get it down in New Jersey?

 

AEW hears from The Kingdom and #WARJOE!

Matt Taven asks, “I just want to know who did we disrespect? Because I never said the name, ‘Warjoe.’ I would never say that name in the first place because it is an awful tag team name, but if you Melvins are throwing out title shots, then Matt Taven is gonna step up to the plate.” A ROH Grand Slam Champion, winning all the belts they had to offer, and you will see a NEW AEW TNT Champion.

But Wardlow says Taven can scream his name as loudly and as confidently as he wants, and he can list his experience and the titles he has won. But when you’re in the ring with Wardlow, none of it matters. Friday on Rampage, two things are inevitable: Taven being the next casualty of the Powerbomb Symphony; and Wardlow wins. Will Matt Taven find he’s just in Wardlow’s World now?

 

Bryan Danielson VS Sammy Guevara w/ Tay Melo!

The American Dragon said his piece earlier, but so did the Spanish God. The BCC won earlier, but is starting to fall apart. Can Bryan win to keep things going strong? Or will the JAS avenge themselves with a little sports entertainment?

The bell rings and Bryan stares down with Sammy. Then they rush in and Sammy KNEES Bryan! Sammy fires off hands and CHOPS, then he climbs up the corner to rain down fists!

Sammy goes up and over in the corner, then hurdles Bryan, flips and jumps, but Bryan catches the legs to an ANKLE LOCK! Bryan hooks the legs up and fans cheer as he fishhooks Sammy! The ref counts, Bryan lets go to get the arms. Bryan pulls, pulls and has the ROMERO SPECIAL! Sammy endures the floating surfboard, but Bryan lets Sammy down to throw forearm after forearm!

The ref checks, those are a bit closed, but Bryan stops at 4. Bryan asks the fans, “Wanna see me kick his head in?” Fans cheer! But Sammy scrambles out to Tay! Bryan runs to WRECK Sammy with a dropkick! And then leaps off the apron, but Sammy KNEES Bryan first!! Bryan staggers, Sammy goes up the apron, ASAI MOONSAULT! Sammy almost reaches the lights as he takes down Bryan!

AEW goes picture in picture as Tay applauds her husband and gives him a kiss. Sammy slides into the ring, and Tay gest a cheap shot on Bryan! Tay gets away with it, but the ref is suspicious of something happening. Fans tell the ref to get rid of Tay but the ref lets Tay stay for now. Bryan drags himself up and gets in the ring, but Sammy is on him with a rain of forearms and fists! The ref counts, Sammy lets off to facelock. Sammy snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Sammy is annoyed but he drags Bryan up. Sammy puts Bryan on the ropes to CHOKE! The ref counts and Sammy lets off, and Tay CHOKES Bryan now!

Tay gets away with things again, Sammy digs his knee into Bryan and the ref counts. Sammy lets off at 4 and Bryan crawls to a corner. Sammy storms up to whip Bryan corner to corner. Sammy runs in, and he DROPKICKS Bryan, a la Bryan! Sammy soaks up the heat, then he goes corner to corner again, to DROPKICK! Bryan flounders and Sammy soaks up more heat. Sammy stands on Bryan for the cocky cover a la Jericho, but Bryan pushes him off before a count even starts. Dynamite returns to single picture and Sammy drags Bryan up. Sammy CLUBS Bryan, CLUBS him again, then soaks up more heat.

Fans rally for Bryan as Sammy tells the “stupid dragon” he hates him. Sammy KICKS Bryan a la Bryan, then KICKS and KICKS and KICKS! Fans chant “NO! NO! NO!” and Bryan starts snarling!

The American Dragon takes out all those frustrations, but he might even have some to spare! Who will Bryan look to take all of that out on next?

 

Backstage interview with Rey Fenix & Alex Abrahantes.

Renee is with the Immortal Firebird and the Death Triangle’s hype man to ask them about Penta’s title match tonight. How do they see it going? Fenix says Penta will become the NEW AEW Double Champion! Alex agrees, Penta will beat Moxley for THE AEW World Championship. Sorry, though, Renee. And Fenix says Penta, or any member of Death Triangle, could be a Double Champion. Even Fenix! Alex agrees here, too, and says Fenix should go after the All-Atlantic Championship! But then Christian Cage & Luchasaurus barge in. Is that what they think?

Captain Charisma says that maybe they didn’t hear, but last week, Christian proclaimed HIS Right Hand of Destruction will go after every single person with a title in AEW. “Luchasaurus has been walking through the opposition left and right. Including Jungle Boy. Who pinned you,” Fenix. So if anyone deserves a shot at Orange Cassidy’s All-Atlantic title, it’s Luchasaurus. Do they understand? But then Cassidy walks in and says, “Y’all talking about me? You two talking about this? Well, next week, let’s do this.” What? Another Triple Threat for the Freshly Squeezed Champion? As chill as he is, is he crazy? Or just that confident?

 

Riho VS Jamie Hayter w/ Britt Baker & Rebel!

The inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion returned to save the interim champion, Toni Storm, from Britt Baker and her crew, so now she’s gotta take on Britt’s number one sidekick! Will Riho humble Hayter in her first match back? Or will Hayter love to ruin Riho’s return?

Backstage interview with Eddie Kingston.

Renee is with the Mad King, and he says, “What up, sis?” Renee notes last Friday on Rampage, it was an intervention of sorts for Eddie Kingston. How is he? How’s he been? Eddie chuckles and says he’s great! He’s wonderful! That thing was fun, look at his smile. It’s great, really. But anyway, let’s talk about Moxley and his match tonight. Let’s stop worrying about Eddie, okay? Well, okay. Moxley will be defending his title against Penta, how does Eddie feel about that? Eddie says in all honesty, this will be a hard one for Moxley. Penta’s money, he’s Eddie’s friend, but Moxley will take this. And that’s it. Everyone else, leave Eddie alone.

 

BIG matches set for Rampage!

As the war rages on, the BCC’s Claudio & Yuta now take on Daddy Magic & Cool Hand Ange! Will the Swiss Superman & Decoder keep things rolling against Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker? Plus, Madison Rayne and Tay Melo will go 1v1 after their tag team encounter. Will the Queen Bee sting the Brazilian Goddess? And the AEW TNT Championship match is official, Matt Taven gets his shot at the War Dog! Will The Kingdom’s first move in AEW be to get some gold? Or just to get devastated by powerbombs?

 

Darby Allin speaks.

“As you can see, Sting hasn’t been here in quite some time. I’m gonna tell you a little story why. About a month ago, I went up to Sting and I told him, ‘Hey, I’m not happy. I’m not happy with where I’m going, I’m not happy with who I am, I just want to crawl into a hole and disappear from the world.’ And he said, ‘You can’t do that.’ And I said, ‘Why? Why can’t I do that?’ And he told me, ‘Because you’re Darby Allin. A former TNT Champion, the man that convinced to come out of retirement.’ And I said, ‘If that’s the case, then let me prove myself by myself.’

“And fast forward to last week, Jay Lethal comes up to me and says, ‘I have an old friend that knows your biggest weakness.’ Well, Jay, you can told your old friend I already know my biggest weakness, and my biggest weakness is myself. It’s been since day one I was born, I’ve been dancing on thin ice, and I have no safety net, I have no comfort zone. Tell your old friend to come to AEW Dynamite next week, and tell me to my face what my biggest weakness is.”

Jay Lethal and friends respond!

Lethal says, “Well, Darby, it seems you need to worry a little less about our friend, and a little more about how we have a match next week. And if you thought last week, that beating we gave you was something, you ain’t seen nothing yet, Darby! You are in for a rude awakening!” Sonjay Dutt asks if this is what Darby really wants. Does Darby wanna piss Sonjay off? Well if that’s what he wants, be careful what you wish for, because next week, Darby sure as hell is going to get it. The rematch is on, but just who is that old friend who knows Darby’s weakness?

 

AEW World Championship: Jon Moxley VS Penta El Zero Miedo w/ Alex Abrahantes!

The Maniac loves to fight, and between his match with Hangman Page going sideways and MJF not taking him on last week, he’s itching to fight someone with no fear of what’s going to happen. And so who better to answer the call then this man! Will Pentagon, one third of Death Triangle, have two titles after tonight? Or will having no fear have no effect on the wild thing?

The introductions are made, “Pretty Platinum” is raised, and we see who is meeting MJF in New Jersey!

The bell rings, fans are fired up already, and Penta stares down with Moxley. Fans duel, “CERO! MIEDO!” “Let’s Go, Moxley!” Penta and Moxley approach, talk some smack, and then Penta gives a shove. Moxley shoves back, and he eggs Penta on. They circle, tie up, and Moxley backs Penta down. But Penta backs Moxley into a corner, lets off as the ref calls the break, but then Moxley avoids a chop to CHOP back! Penta CHOPS, Moxley CHOPS, they CHOP and CHOP and CHOP and CHOP! Fans fire up and Moxley throws a forearm! Penta responds with a forearm, they throw forearms back and forth now, then turn this into a brawl!

Moxley KICKS a leg, runs, but into a half nelson! Moxley fights out, wrenches, but Penta blocks the underhooks! Penta wrenches, MULE KICKS, then reels Moxley in! “CERO! MIEDO!” But Moxley back drops! Penta sunset flips, Moxley rolls through but Penta ducks the Regal Knee to roll Moxley up, TWO! Moxley hurries but Penta ducks the lariat, and then has Moxley hold on. Penta wags his finger and says, “Listen! CERO! MIEDO!” Penta pie faces Moxley! Moxley tells Penta to listen. “F YOU!” And he flips Penta off! Fans fire up and Penta is annoyed. But Moxley blocks his Superkick and spins Penta around.

Penta ducks the lariat to SUPERKICK on the return! Moxley flops out of the ring, Penta builds speed and FLIES! Direct hit and fans fire up! Penta swaggers around and AEW goes picture in picture.

Penta has the fans chanting along with the Cero Miedo, then he goes back to fetch Moxley. Moxley sit sup, Penta KICKS him in the leg! Moxley hobbles, Penta follows after and he CHOPS Moxley against railing! And CHOPS him again! Penta swaggers, Moxley is stinging, but then Penta moves the steel steps around. Moxley storms over as Penta refreshes the count. Moxley CHOPS Penta as he slides back out! Moxley CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS and then brings Penta around, but Penta blocks the suplex! Penta throws body shots to snap suplex! Fans fire up, Penta borrows a fan’s hat, and then he swaggers up to Moxley to KICK his leg!

Moxley gets in the ring but Penta drags him back out! Penta smacks Moxley off the steel steps! And again! And again! Penta lets off to refresh the count again, and then he brings Moxley around to put him against a corner. Penta CHOPS Moxley against the post! Moxley is stinging, and Penta takes off his glove. Perfect throw and catch with Alex, and then Penta swings, but Moxley moves! Penta’s hand hits steel post! And then Moxley grabs that hand to bend the fingers! Moxley whips Penta into railing! And then puts him in the ring! Moxley slides in at 7 of 10, drags Penta up, and CHOPS him in the corner.

Moxley whips corner to corner, Penta goes up and over and hits a BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO! Penta shakes his head, shakes out his bad hand, and fans clap along. Dynamite returns to single picture as fans chant, “CERO! MIEDO!” Clap, clap, clap-clap-clap. Penta stalks Moxley to the ropes, keeps him in place, and then KICKS him in the side! Moxley sputters and Penta eggs him on. Moxley goes to a corner, Penta stands him up and throws forearms. Penta whips corner to corner, runs in, but into a BOOT! Penta staggers, runs back in, but Moxley OVERHEAD Belly2Belly suplexes Penta into buckles!

Both men are down and fans rally up. A standing count begins, Penta drags himself up the corner but Moxley runs in to clothesline! And clothesline, and clothesline, and clothesline! Moxley climbs up to rain down fists, and fans count to TEN! Moxley BITES the mask! Moxley runs, into a SUPERKICK! Penta runs, into a BOOT! Moxley runs, Penta dodges and comes back to SLINGBLADE! Cover, TWO! Fans rally, both men stand, and Penta reels Moxley in, “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tucks the arms, but Moxley fights free to CUTTER! Moxley drags Penta up, reels him in, PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!! But into a CROSSFACE!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall (still AEW World Champion)

The Maniac snatches the win away at the last moment, but who is in the ring now?! W. Morrissey!? And he BOOTS Moxley down! Then the rest of The Firm, from Lee Moriarty to Ethan Page to the Gunn Sons, swarm the ring to beat up Moxley! They’re going against MJF’s orders as they stomp away on Moxley! They drag Moxley up and feed him to a LARIAT from Colten Gunn! Fans boo but Moriarty goes up top. Morrissey sets Moxley up for Moriarty’s FLYING DOUBLE STOMPS! Stokely storms his way out to the ring and he’s all fired up! Morrissey rains down fists and then rips off his shirt. Fans boo as Stokely gest on the corner?

Security rushes out, but The Firm beat them down now! The Firm throws them all out, and then in the back, it seems The Firm locked the door to the Blackpool Combat Club’s locker room! No one can get in or out, meaning Moxley is all alone against Stokely’s thugs! The mugging of Moxley continues, and Austin gets a chair! Colten sits Moxley up but Moxley BOOTS Austin! Moxley DECKS Colten, DECKS Moriarty, but Ethan BOOTS Moxley back down! Colten rains down forearms, but here comes MJF! MJF looks torn! He did tell The Firm not to do this, but he doesn’t really care about Moxley. Fans boo as MJF goes back to the tunnel.

But then MJF comes running back out! MJF slides in to shove everyone away from Moxley! He tells them that they’re FIRED! The Firm is no longer HIS faction! But MJF says Moxley needs to have sense. But then Ethan BOOTS MJF!! Well, since they’re not his faction anymore, they don’t have to listen to him! They mug MJF now! Fans boo but now there’s no one to save MJF because these were his guys! Morrissey drags MJF up, feeds him to Ethan, and Ethan grins as he blows a kiss to Norfolk. EGO’S EDGE for MJF! And then Morrissey TOSSES MJF out of the ring! But that’s not all, as The Firm follows MJF out.

MJF starts fighting back, but that’s too many to fight off! The timekeeper’s table is cleared off, and Morrissey drags MJF up. Morrissey choke grips, MJF fights but gets mugged again. Morrissey then hauls MJF up with a choke grip, to CHOKE SLAM MJF through the table!! The Firm went rogue and now they’re doing whatever they want! Will anything stop them from taking over AEW? And what is the state of the world title match after both champion and challenger have been demolished?


My Thoughts:

Another great Dynamite, and fortunately, more wrestling than talking. Getting a title match just because was cool, and Moxley and Penta put on an amazing one. MJF had a great promo beforehand, and I am really liking that for all his Heel attitude, he is basically a Face now because fans love him and he wants to do things on his own. The Firm forcing his hand was great, and I feel like The Firm going after MJF was happening at some point anyway with Stokely getting power hungry. Moxley and MJF both get beat down so that does muddy some of the math, but there is still some time before the PPV. I’m wondering if MJF has a match against one of the Firm members as a tune-up. I’m pretty sure Moxley will, and that’ll be great stuff.

Good promos from Eddie Kingston and Rey Fenix to get their opinions on that main event. I also like that there was a lot of sarcasm from Eddie because of that intervention on Rampage. Eddie’s story being about how close he is to snapping is great, it makes the most out of working in his past with other companies. And then Fenix being confronted by Christian and Luchasaurus was good, as was Cassidy joining in. Cassidy is quickly becoming the fightingest All-Atlantic Champion by having two Triple Threat defenses in a row as his first two defenses. He’s starting strong, winning strong, and that might make it all the bigger when someone takes that title off him.

Great match out of Riho VS Hayter, but I figured Hayter would win to push her up the rankings towards the women’s title. Toni Storm showing up was of course a further sign of that, and Storm VS Hayter is going to be awesome stuff. Saraya and Britt also had a nice little encounter backstage, they’re building ever closer to that match for Saraya’s return to the ring. I’m thinking Storm and Saraya each win their matches against Hayter and Britt, but if either of them is losing, it might be Saraya because Britt will have Rebel to help her cheat. And from I’ve heard, it sounds like Storm wants to get the “interim” out of the way the same way Moxley did, maybe Storm is just named THE Women’s World Champion if Thunder Rosa isn’t back after Full Gear.

We got an awesome contender’s match from FTR VS Swerve In Our Glory, and I like all the moving parts of this. The Acclaimed were watching from a distance so as not to be a factor, other than the fans paying them some attention, while The Gunn Sons were ringside because they were going to be a factor. This of course sets up Gunns VS FTR for the ROH World Tag Team Championships while we’re getting Acclaimed VS Swerve & Keith Round 3. With how Swerve is going further and further Heel, I bet he and Keith lose and then Swerve turns on Keith and we get that feud. Then in Gunns VS FTR, there’s half a chance Gunns cheat to win and get The Firm their first belts.

Good promo from Taven and Wardlow to set up their match, but I would think Wardlow wins. His rise back up can’t be stopped just because The Kingdom shows up. We also got good promos from Darby and Lethal’s group to hype up their rematch. I would love if Lethal’s “old friend” who knows Darby’s weakness is Sting! Lethal and Sting were in Impact together, Sting knows Darby pretty well now, and Sting could spin it by saying if Darby wants to prove himself, then he needs to be able to overcome someone with everything in his favor. That in itself can help prove to Darby and to AEW that Darby is ready for the world title.

Great stuff from BCC and JAS. Great opening match from Claudio & Yuta VS Jericho & Garcia. That win is big, because I would love for Full Gear or even ROH Final Battle in December to have Claudio VS Jericho and Yuta VS Garcia, last chances for BCC to get those ROH titles back. Jericho calling out ALL of ROH is great, I would love to see ROH Women’s Champion, Mercedes Martinez, show up to whoop Anna and/or Tay in a title match. And we can see The Briscoes beat up on Menard & Parker, and we can use that promo to give us Jericho VS Samoa Joe at some point. Bryan VS Sammy was also great, and of course Bryan won. The BCC getting heated with each other is an intriguing twist, I can’t wait to see which way this goes.

And while not played up much in the broadcast, I really do like that little promo from The Elite. They did good with that golden Thanos snap type effect, and are of course pointing out that they are the reason for everything that has happened with this company. It is also a sign that they’re on their way back from the suspension, and maybe they’ll actually finally discuss that on camera because otherwise, casual viewers who still don’t know what happened after All Out won’t understand what’s going on. And with that, they can also call out Death Triangle over those Trios Championships, maybe Full Gear gives us Elite VS Death Triangle in a show stealer.

My Score: 8.8/10

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

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

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

The American Dragon survives the Japanese legend, and Eddie says he gives Bryan his due. Eddie’s problem with Bryan was never about his talent, the problem is Bryan’s problem with Eddie. Bryan gives Jun his due by shaking his hand. But then Bryan flips Eddie off! So Jun SLAPS Bryan! Jun doesn’t like the disrespect shown and Bryan apologizes. Bryan offers another handshake, Jun takes it, but Bryan LOW BLOWS Jun! Eddie runs up to TACKLE Bryan! The fans fire up as Eddie punches away on Bryan! The ref reprimands but Eddie doesn’t care, he just keeps hitting Bryan! But then Claudio runs up to tackle Eddie!

The BCC beats Eddie down, but then here comes FTR! Cash & Dax brawl with Claudio & Bryan! The fans fire up as FTR runs the BCC off! BREAKING NEWS via Tony Schiavone! Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Trios Triple Threat: Private Party & Matt Sydal VS Top Flight & Action Andretti VS Bryan Keith, Komander & Penta El Zero Miedo!

With all the trios titles belonging to the Bang Bang Scissor Gang, many others are trying their hands at the trios game. Will Isiah Kassidy, Marq Quen and the Zen Assassin open their third eyes? Will Dante, Darius & The Sight to See be flying high? Or will the Bounty Hunter, the AAA Cruiserweight Champion and The Man with No Fear steal the spotlight from them all?

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle. They tie up, go around, and Sydal headlocks for a takeover. Action stands up but Sydal hits another takeover. Sydal then snapmares but Action handsprings through! Fans cheer and the two go again. Sydal tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Action handsprings through again! Action dusts himself off, but Sydal runs up. Action wrenches, CHOPS, and then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG! Fans fire up as Action DROPKICKS Sydal down!

Action kips up and smiles while Top Flight talks some smack to Private Party. Action then runs and IMPLODER TORNILLOS onto Sydal! Cover, ONE, but Action tags Darius. They double whip Sydal, but Sydal KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS! Fans fire up with Sydal and he gets a “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant going. Sydal KICKS Darius’ leg over an dover, but Darius catches him to a pump-handle GUTBUSTER! Then GAMANGIRI! Sydal flounders away, Bryan Keith tags in! Keith runs up but Darius headlocks. Keith powers up and out, Darius RAMS him, but Keith rebounds to BOOT! Darius falls, Kassidy tags in!

The fans rally as Zay dodges Keith, fires “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” and then ROCKS Keith. Zay whips, Keith reverses, but Zay goes up and Quen tags in. Zay RANAS Keith into Quen’s GAMANGIRI! Then Quen springboards to SPLASH Keith! Cover, TWO! Keith is still in this and he tags out to Penta! The fans fire up as Penta somersaults in, but Quen shows he can somersault, too. The fans rally for “CERO! MIEDO!” Penta tells Quen to listen, CERO! MIEDO! Queen says okay, but “What do we want? SHOTS!” Quen shoves Penta, so Penta takes off the glove. The fans fire up, and Penta makes the pass to Alex Abrahantes!

Penta says again, CERO! MIEDO! Another pie face, but Dante tags in off Quen. Dante shoves Penta but then Komander tags in. Quen jumps on Dante, he and Penta mug him, and then everyone else rushes in! It’s a nine man melee and the ref reprimands them all! Things spill out, Dante and Komander stay in. Dante breaks free to JUMP KNEE, then runs, but Komander dodges! Dante mule kicks, whips, but Komander reverses to hook Dante up, COBRA TWIST, into a tilt-o-whirl RANA! Fans fire up as Dante flounders to a corner. Komander runs corner to corner but Dante dodges! Komander elbows back, then SUPERKICKS!

Dante flounders away, Komander jumps up top, and Komander tightrope walks to ARABIAN PRESS ARM-DRAG! Then a DROPKICK! The fans fire up as Komander covers, TWO! Komander tags Penta before he runs in, but Dante jumps up and over! Penta runs in to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Dante staggers up, into a SUPERKICK! Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

Komander feeds Dante to Keith’s fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, Zay breaks it! The fans rally, Quen tags in off Keith, and Quen stomps away on Action as Rampage goes picture in picture!

Quen stomps and stomps but the ref counts. Quen lets off to drag Action up and bump him off buckles. Quen runs up to RAM Action, then tags in Zay. Private Party keeps Action trapped, Zay ENZIGIRIS Action down! Zay stomps now, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Zay lets off to kick-step, then he tags Sydal. They stomp Action, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Sydal lets off to rally the fans, then he drags Action up. Action throws body shots but Sydal CLUBS him down. Sydal stands Action up again to back suplex, but Action lands out, only for Sydal to HEEL KICK! Tag to Quen and Quen slingshot SENTONS!

Rampage returns to single picture as Quen stomps Action back to the corner. Tag to Zay, Quen snap suplexes Action down for Zay to slingshot SENTON! Zay smirks and then drags Action up. Zay puts Action in the corner, CHOPS, then tags Quen. Private Party double whip Action to ropes, but Action ducks ‘n’ handsprings to DOUBLE BACK ELBOW! The fans fire up as Action and Private Party are all down. Action crawls, Quen grabs at a foot but hot tag to Dante! Dante rallies on Quen, whips, but Quen reveres. Quen runs in at the corner, Dante slips out to the apron and Quen hits buckles. Dante then goes up and around to GAMANGIRI!

Dante springboards to CROSSBODY! Cover, Keith breaks it! Darius runs up to CHOP Keith, but Keith ROCKS Darius! Keith runs, but Darius follows to HOTSHOT BULLDOG! And then GAMANGIRI! Darius steps in, but into a KNEE! Keith runs up to SHOTGUN Darius out of the ring! Keith pursues, but Action is there to go after Keith. Action fires forearms, Dante turns around to see Zay. Zay dodges Dante to then FLY out onto Keith, Darius & Action! Dante whips Sydal up and out but Komander tags in. Komander BOOTS Sydal, Dante BLASTS Penta, and Komander gets Sydal in an APRON ROMERO SPECIAL!

Dante builds speed and he FLIES over those two to wipe out Keith and his own teammates! Komander lets Sydal go, Sydal mule kicks Komander down! Sydal goes up the corner, to APRON METEORA! But Penta’s right there! APRON FEAR FACTOR!! Penta rises but Zay springboards, triangle jump STUNNER! Quen gets in, Zay gives him the boost to go up and up and SUPER SWANTON onto everyone else!! The fans are thunderous and Zay takes a bow. Zay then waits as Quen puts Penta in. Zay puts Penta up top, GAMANGIRIS, and then GIN ‘N’ JUICE DESTROYER!! Penta turned things right around on Private Party!

Keith runs in, Quen BOOTS him first, but Keith roars! Keith RISING HEADBUTTS to send Quen down! Penta sets up as Komander builds speed, BOOSTED TORNILLO onto the cluster outside!! The fans are thunderous again but Sydal rushes Penta! Penta sidesteps, Sydal springboards, but into a SUPERKICK! And then Penta tucks him back in, FEAR FACTOR!! Cover, Penta’s team wins!

Winners: Penta El Zero Miedo, Komander & Bryan Keith, by pinfall

A huge win for this eccentric trio, will they be hunting down The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass? Or will they try for the Bullet Club Gold’s gold instead?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

After taking a week off for the NBA All-Star Game, Saturday nights are once again good for a fight. Thunder Rosa and Serena Deeb each return to in-ring action, will these two rivals keep pace in the chase for gold? And we just saw Bryan Keith win big in the trios match, but he’ll jump right back into singles action against Malakai Black! Will the Bounty Hunter get another big win in his hunt for opportunity? Or will the Dark Father prove the House Always Wins?

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya and Harley and isn’t sure how much they’ve been watching Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker, but those two are off on their path of romance. Saraya DGAF about Soho x Parker!! She has things going on, too! That traitor isn’t getting under her skin even a little bit! Harley calms Saraya down, and they do breathing exercises. Why’s Harley flicking her tongue when she does that…? But Saraya wants to talk business. Y’know how her family is big famous wrestling royalty in the UK? Well, see, she has a special announcement. Her brother, “Zodiac” Zak Knight, has just become All Elite!!

Saraya has her brother walk into frame, and yeah, he’s scary, right? Zak could’ve been yours, Ruby! Saraya was gonna set Ruby up with him, “the most eligible bachelor in the Norwich area!” And Ruby messed that up just to be with that greasy, slimy, whatever Parker is! Harley says yeah! Just look at Zak! Isn’t he hot? He’s so hot! The whole Knight family is hot! Saraya is a bit taken aback by that, and she sprays water at Harley. Harley just embraces it so that doesn’t make for a good deterrent anymore… Saraya says it’s okay, Harley’s about to be fixed. But Saraya also promises, “Things are about to get really spicy around here.”

The Outcasts head out, and Zak’s scowl scares Renee a bit. Will Ruby & Parker regret making their romance public?

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

Matthew & Nicholas Jackson used, or rather abused, their power as Executive Vice Presidents of AEW to have an AEW World Tag Team Championship match at Revolution. However, they are also very upset at the continued disrespect. Will that really stop after they take their frustrations out on these young indie guys?

The teams sort out and Nick starts against Lyons. Nick doesn’t even bother taking off his trilby (or is it a fedora?) as he circles with Lyons. Nick calls for a knuckle lock but then kicks low and CLUBS away! The fans boo but Nick soaks it up. Nick whips Lyons, Lyons reverses but Matt tags in. Nick hurdles then whips Lyons, Lyons ducks Nick but Matt CLOBBERS him! Matt takes off his suit jacket to then drags Lyons up. Matt TOSSES Lyons to the corner, Lyons tags in Cappuccino! The fans fire up for Cappuccino as he circles with Matt. Matt mockingly applauds, also calls for a knuckle lock, but also kicks low!

Matt CLUBS away on Cappuccino, just like Nick, but then Matt cools off. Matt brings Cappuccino up to throw hands, whips him to ropes, but fakes the superkick to DDT instead! Fans boo but Matt drags Cappuccino up. Matt whips Cappuccino to the corner, he and Nick coordinate to LARIAT GAMANGIRI COMBO! Tag to Nick, he BLASTS Lyons, and then Matt whips Nick in so he can go up and over and PENALTY KICK Lyons! Matt stomps Cappuccino, stands him up, then HOTSHOTS him into Nick’s DISCUS LARIAT! Tag back to Matt and he drags Cappuccino up. The fans rally as hard as they can, but Cappuccino gets the MELTZER DRIVER!! Cover, The Bucks win!

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

Well, turns out they call that the “Tony Khan Driver” now, seems they don’t care to be associated with the Wrestling Observer anymore. But then they feel disrespected when the ref hesitates to raise their hands? Nick gets the mic to tell Paul Turner that when he raises their hand, what name did he use? Did he really just call him “Nick?” That is disrespectful! Next time, it’s a fine! And Schiavone, please, join them in the ring. Fans boo and Schiavone isn’t sure what to do. But they are EVPs, he doesn’t really have a choice… Schiavone joins the Bucks, and Nick promises they won’t harm him.

Last week, Schiavone was in the ring with them and Nick swears, he tripped on his own shoe, knocked into Schiavone and that is why Schiavone fell over. Nick wants to make it clear, and he apologizes for that. Matt says to show how sorry they are, and how much they love him, they got him a $25 Amazon gift card. They are sorry, Schiavone, but that isn’t the only thing they’re sorry about. See, they’re also sorry that, uh… they can’t get the bloodstains left by Darby Allin & Sting out of their $5,000 suits. Schiavone says yes, that is a problem… Will they rescind the $1,000 fine on them by any chance?

Sorry, no, they can’t do that. But there are a couple things that they won’t be sorry about. The first thing is beating the hell out of Darby for all the trash he talked about them publicly. The second thing, and this is one Schiavone will really like, is them taking Sting and pinning him to the mat, saying goodbye to one of the most legendary careers in all of pro-wrestling! Fans boo but Matt continues to tell “Stinger,” call them Father Time. Because just like time, the Bucks are undefeated. And just like time, the Bucks are coming for Sting! “Now everybody, let’s have a great show! There’s a great line-up on the way!

“Tony’s over there at the desk, he’s one of the best play by play guys in the business! C’mon, everybody! AEW chant on three? One, two, three! A E DUB! A E DUB! Alright, let’s go~!” Matt fist bumps Schiavone, then leaves with Nick. The farce continues, but will there be nothing even Darby & Sting can do about it? Or will the Icon still find a way to retire on top?

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

Rampage returns and he welcomes a young man who has had a busy year. He’s a brand new father but fighting the Don Callis Family, it’s Sammy Guevara! Tulsa cheers as The Spanish God heads to the ring, back on his feet after the ambush by Will Hobbs. Schiavone shakes hands with Sammy, and Schiavone congratulates Sammy on last week’s win against Jeff Hardy. But now, to the comments Callis had for Sammy just last Wednesday Night Dynamite. The insults he hurled at Sammy, Callis clearly has it out for him.

Sammy says it is a mix of emotions. Last week, he got in the ring with a childhood hero in Jeff Hardy. But on the other hand, he’s pissed off because Hobbs put him through a table! Sammy tells Hobbs that Sammy always knew Hobbs had endless potential, and superstardom written all over him. But he can do that all on his own! Hobbs doesn’t need Callis sucking the life out of Hobbs’ career! Hobbs is a star all on his own, but it’s too late now for him to figure that out because he’s pissed Sammy off. So enough talk! Get your ass out here so they can fight! The Don Callis Family music plays, but it’s only Callis walking out here.

Callis has a mic to taunt Sammy, “Look, everybody! It’s Mr. Mom! You’re back at work after nursing the child. I mean, the only thing you’ve done of any note in the last six months is reproduce, and you shouldn’t be proud of that. Dogs do it. Even these people can do it!” Fans boo but Callis says Sammy used to be a great athlete. He used to be a guy Callis wanted in the Family. But now, Sammy has become like so many others: a weak, pathetic little cuck! Sammy doesn’t get what Callis is doing repeating himself, but then HOBBS gets in from the crowd side! Sammy dodges, SUPERKICKS, and Hobbs bails out!

Sammy eggs Hobbs on, then builds speed, to FLY! Direct hit and down goes Hobbs! Sammy says bang bang, and he gets a chair! Sammy winds up to SMACK Hobbs on the back! Hobbs hobbles but gets in the ring. Sammy pursues, aims again, and he JAMS Hobbs low! Then SMACKS him on the back! Sammy throws off the jacket, waits on Hobbs to turn around, but Hobbs fights off the torture rack to LARIAT Sammy inside out!! Callis smiles as he tells Hobbs to end this! SPINEBUSTER! And then another SPINEBUSTER! Hobbs is gonna do Sammy like he did Jericho! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops and WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM!!

Hobbs stands over Sammy and Callis applauds. The Powerhouse has all but pulverized Sammy, and Callis even gets his shots in! Will the Don Callis Family make sure there’s nothing left of Sammy to go home to his wife and daughter by the end of this?

 

Skye Blue speaks.

“I had that match. I had it won, if it wasn’t for that bald headed, sad, poor excuse of a man, I would’ve had it and I deserved it. I had that win and I deserved it, on my own.” Julia Hart calms her down and says it’s okay. They will have their comeuppance. And while seeking their revenge, they will dig three graves: one for Willow, for Kris, and for Stokely. But who does Skye want first? Whoever will step up. Whoever has the balls enough to step up and fight her! Will the Chicago Skye continue to darken until she blots out the light?

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

Toni Storm’s superfan still wants to prove herself to her hero, but that really depends on if Storm is even watching this. Will Mariah finally have Storm’s approval? Or will the Queenslayer still be the Star of the Show?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and they go along the ropes. They end up in a corner, get out of a corner, and Mariah pulls hair. The ref counts, Mariah lets off and shoves Anna, but Anna doesn’t budge! Anna smirks as she and Mariah rest and tie up. Anna waistlocks, shoves, but Mariah slides to sweep the legs! Mariah runs but Anna dodges the dropkick! Anna runs to BLOCKBUSTER! Anna then ROCKS Mariah, whips her, but Mariah reverses to ROCK Anna! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then puts some stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! Mariah brings Anna around to bump off buckles, and CHOP again!

Mariah eggs Anna on so Anna CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS! Mariah bumps Anna off buckles, then digs her boot in as Rampage goes picture in picture!

The ref counts, Mariah lets off at 4, and she brings Anna into ropes to hook her up. The ref counts as Mariah chinlocks Anna against ropes, but she lets off at 4. Mariah kisses Anna on the cheek, then runs to DROPKICK Anna in the back! Anna falls out of the ropes and Mariah soaks up the heat. Mariah stands Anna up, runs, and SHOTGUNS her down! Anna flounders out of the ring and Mariah takes a bow. Mariah then goes out to stalk Anna, and she brings Anna around the way. Mariah puts Anna against barriers to CHOP her! And SPANK her! Mariah laughs while Anna hobbles away. Mariah pursues to then CHOP again!

Anna is stinging while Mariah dusts herself off. Mariah hears the count but she whips Anna into the barriers first! Mariah then leaves Anna behind and “apologizes” to the ref. Mariah goes back out after Anna, soaks up the heat, and vogues for the camera. But Anna throws body shots and CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mariah CHOPS back! Mariah pushes Anna into the ring, takes her time posing before going back in, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns as Anna whips Mariah to a corner. Mariah slips out to the apron, avoids Anna’s haymaker, and ROUNDHOUSES in return! Anna staggers, Mariah shouts and climbs up, but Anna ROCKS her! Anna then gets space, runs up, and HEEL KICKS! Anna then wrenches the arms, ICONOCLASM! Cover, TWO! Anna grows frustrated but she drags Mariah up and hooks the arms. Mariah blocks the Gory Especial to backslide hard, TWO! Anna sits up, into a KNEE THRUST! Mariah says it’s time to end this, and she hauls Anna back up. Fireman’s carry, but Anna slips free! QUEENSLAYER!!

Anna hops on as a backpack, but Mariah RAMS her into buckles! Mariah is free, and she puts Anna up top. Mariah DOUBLE CHOPS, then gets some space. Mariah runs up to STRATUSPHERE! Anna flounders away and Mariah shouts out Storm! Mariah runs up, but the hip attack misses! Anna runs up to kick, dragon sleeper, and BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO?!? Mariah survives and Anna grows frustrated! The fans rally as Anna sits Mariah up, into the QUEEN- NO, Mariah blocks the sleeper! Anna fights through to have the QUEENSLAYER! Mariah flails, reaches out, but she BITES Anna’s arm!!

The ref reprimands but Mariah is free all the same! Fireman’s carry, MAYDAY DRIVER!! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

One thing is for sure, Mariah is just as looney as her role model! Will she follow in Storm’s footsteps to become a champion in AEW?

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

Renee is with the lovey-dovey couple, how’d the date go? Ruby says she felt it went really well. Parker is relieved, he didn’t wanna say it first and be wrong. It was incredible, everything he hoped it’d be, he had a great time. Renee points out that in the opposite direction, Saraya is becoming unraveled. If they didn’t hear her comments earlier, she had some rather choice words. And apparently, she was going to hook Ruby up with her brother? Ruby says that’s weird and Renee agrees. Plus, Zak is more like a poor man’s Tom Hardy, big pass. Parker isn’t sure being Norwich’s Most Eligible Bachelor is a bad of honor, either. And honestly, “wrestling royalty?” That’s a stretch.

Ruby tells Saraya that she said she doesn’t care, that Ruby doesn’t get under her skin, but here’s the reality: for the last year, Saraya told Ruby that Ruby needed Saraya, when it was really the other way around. Saraya is sad and unhappy without Ruby. And say all you want about Ruby, but talk bad on Parker and that’s when they have problems. Ruby said she needed space, and in that space, she found something real. And Saraya may be sick of hearing it, of seeing it, but hey, why not invite everyone along? Bring the cameras, bring the crew, and they’ll shove this right down Saraya’s throat!

Parker’s pretty fired up. He says Ruby’s hot when she’s mad. Ruby thanks him for the compliment, and the two head out to get some drinks. Will they make Saraya so sick of love she’ll never dare speak their names again?

 

Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Jake Hager w/ Hornsby!

The Undisputed Kingdom were bullying Orange Cassidy, and apparently the Big Hurt didn’t like seeing that. Will Oklahoma’s own break the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will Roddy be too strong even for the All-American Sooner?

The bell rings and the fans rally for Hager and Hornsby. Roddy and Hager circle, tie up, and Hager powers Roddy to a corner. Roddy slips free, shoves Hager, and fans boo. The two reset, they circle again, and Roddy gets around to waistlock. Roddy then turns Hager around to CHOP, but Hager doesn’t budge! Fans fire up and Roddy is a bit scared, so Roddy bails out. The Kingdom pep talk Roddy while the ring count climbs. Roddy hurries in, dodges Hager, then things speed up. Roddy leaps but Hager catches him! Hager puts Roddy in a corner, runs up but into a BOOT! Roddy CHOPS, but Hager catches it?!

Fans fire up as Hager TOSSES Roddy, then CHOPS him! And CHOPS him again! Hager whips corner to corner hard, runs up, but Rodd bails out again! Hager snarls, goes out after Roddy, and stalks him around the way. Matt Menard’s on commentary, he says watch out for “these bozos,” Taven & Bennett. Hager stares them down as he walks past, then fires off on Roddy! Roddy tumbles, Hager puts him in the ring, but Roddy KICKS Hager in the ropes! Roddy CLUBS away on Hager, then tells Tulsa to shut up! Roddy runs, but into a BOOT! Hager storms up, puts Roddy in a corner, and then TOSSES him across the ring!

The fans fire up as Hager LARIATS Roddy down! Cover, TWO! Roddy stays in this but Hager digs his knees into Roddy! Roddy flails and reaches out but Hager traps the arms. The ref counts as that knee gets a bit high on the chest and into the neck area. Hager lets off, but he puts Roddy in a corner to fire off body shots! Roddy staggers away as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Hornsby cheers Hager on as he clotheslines Roddy in the corner! Hager ROCKS Roddy while talking trash to The Kingdom, then he hauls Roddy up top. Hager climbs, brings Roddy up, but Roddy clubs at Hager’s leg. Roddy throws body shots, slips underneath, and then kicks the legs out! Hager ends up stuck in the ropes, and Roddy runs to STRONG KNEE him in the back! Hager falls and Roddy stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Roddy lets off to flex, but only The Kingdom cheers him on. Roddy stands on Hager in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, but then he springboard stomps Hager down!

Roddy gets the legs and has Hager in ropes, for the ROPE GUILLOTINE! Hager sputters, Roddy covers, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down by dropping knees, then he digs a knee into Hager’s back. Roddy has the chinlock but Hager endures and fights up. The fans rally, Hager throws body shots, and then Hager runs, but into a DROPKICK! Roddy hurries to cover, TWO! Roddy drags Hager from ropes, stomps him, then paces around while The Kingdom talks trash on Hager. Roddy glares at Hornsby but Hornsby dares him to do something! Roddy goes back to Hager to rain down fists! Roddy then lets off to put Hager in a corner.

Taven seems to be talking trash on Hornsby, probably calling him a Melvin like does everyone. Roddy stands Hager up to CHOP! And CHOP! And then he scoops to BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Roddy keeps Hager down with another chinlock, again digging in a knee. Hager endures, fights up, and Rampage returns to single picture. Hager throws body shots and is free, but Roddy CLUBS, KNEES and runs, but into a lift! Roddy sunset flips, Hager stays up and he drags Roddy up to TOSS to a corner! Roddy BOOTS, ENZIGIRIS and then OLYMPIC SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Roddy grows frustrated as Hager stays in this.

Hornsby smacks the steel steps to rally the fans, and now Bennett glares at him. And then Taven comes in from the other side, Hornsby realizes he’s in a 2v1 situation here. Hornsby wants them to calm down, but then he pulls out a SUPER CONFETTI POPPER! It goes off and Hornsby says take that! The Kingdom still storms up on him, but here comes Orange Cassidy! The AEW International Champion is returning the favor to Hager by helping out his buddy. The Kingdom says fine, bring it then! Cassidy says hold on, he has THE HAT! He throws the purple bucket hat into Hager, and Hager loves that hat!

Cassidy then dodges Taven, shoves him into Bennett, and down they go! Cassidy rains down fists, and Hager powers up with the hat!! Roddy runs up but Hager LARIATS! And LARIATS! And OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY SUPLEXES! The fans are thunderous as Hager says, “I like this hat!!” Then Hager runs corner to corner, goes up and up, and hits the HAGER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Hager snarls! But Taven sends Cassidy into railing! The 2v1 has gotten the better of Cassidy, and Roddy JAWBREAKERS Hager! Hager staggers, Roddy storms up, OLYMP- NO, Hager slips free to GUT RWENCH BOMB!! Cover, TWO!!

Roddy survives, but Hager has the ANKLE LOCK!! Roddy flails, rolls over, and he kicks from below! Hager still holds on, ANKLE LOCK! Roddy flails, reaches out, but Taven throws Cassidy into the ring! The ref is distracted by that, Taven & Bennett get on the apron but Hager CLOBBERS them both! Roddy STRONG KNEES!! Hager falls, Roddy covers, Roddy wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

Despite having back-up and the power-up, Hager still couldn’t beat the numbers game! Roddy is rolling towards Revolution, will he be taking the International title away from Cassidy?


My Thoughts:

A very good Rampage that was again booked to have story. The Bucks of course won their match, but they did what I was hoping they’d do in changing up their style. They purposefully didn’t use superkicks, and then they are apparently changing up the names of their finishers as if to say Heel Bucks don’t care about their YouTube show or Dave Meltzer. Their post match promo was good, too, but it didn’t really add too much more to the heat they’ve already got. And pretty good promos out of this Ruby VS Saraya story. I thought Ruby VS Saraya was just going to be the thing, but now it feels like they might give us a Mixed Tag of Ruby & Parker VS Saraya & Zak.

Really good Trios Triple Threat to open, and I love that it was Keith, Komander & Penta winning rather than taking a loss to the established-ish trios. The feud of Private Party and Top Flight really needs to be settled by just those teams anyway. Pretty good promo from Sammy Guevara to call out the Don Callis Family, but of course it turned into Hobbs beating Sammy up. Good promo from Skye and Julia, I really thought AEW would’ve figured out a contender to the TBS Championship by now, but maybe that’ll happen very quickly in the next week. Really good match from Mariah May and Anna Jay, and a really good win for Mariah. But you can bet Storm didn’t pay attention to this at all, just like the other times.

And very good main event from Hager VS Roddy, with The Kingdom of course overbooking this. The bit with Hornsby was fun, and Cassidy showing up was also a logical move. I like that Hager’s hat is now the same as Cassidy putting hands in his pockets, but of course Hager lost out. Roddy needs momentum going into the title match so he had to win this one, and he probably just waits it out while Cassidy gets worn down. But at this point, it’ll probably still take a lot of cheating for Roddy to win the International title and bring it into The Undisputed Kingdom.

My Score: 8.7/10
