PLAY BY PLAY

Jon Moxley & Claudio Castagnoli VS The Butcher & The Blade w/ The Bunny!

The AEW World Champion stopped Private Party from beating up on Hangman Page, and that upset La Faccion Ingobernable. But instead of handling business directly, Rush has sent the mercenaries after the Maniac! Will Butcher & Blade brutalize the Blackpool Combat Club for El Toro Blanco? Or will Moxley and the Swiss Superman be the ones sending LFI back in pieces?

The bell rings, and the mercenaries attack! Blade goes after Moxley while Butcher is after Claudio! Blade kicks Moxley out and Butcher throws Claudio while fans boo. The brawling continues outside, Butcher whips but Claudio reverses! Butcher hits railing hard, and Moxley fires off on Blade! Moxley whips Blade over the timekeeper’s desk! Fans fire up with the BCC and Moxley drags Blade up to CHOP! Claudio EuroUppers Blade, Moxley CHOPS Blade, and then Moxley brings Blade around the way. Moxley waves hi to Bunny in her maple leaf outfit, but Blade back suplexes Moxley onto the railing!

Blade stares Claudio down but the ref shouts at everyone to get in the ring. Blade puts Moxley in, CHOPS, but Moxley CHOPS! Blade CHOPS, Moxley CHOPS! And CHOPS and CHOPS and ROCKS and CHOPS! Moxley fires off, whips corner to corner, then runs in, but into a BOOT! Blade runs, but into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Blade flounders, Moxley keeps him from Butcher and wrenches. Tag to Claudio, Hangman is watching backstage, and Moxley snapmares Blade for Claudio to drop a leg, brother! Cover, ONE! Claudio drags Blade up and fans rally as he EuroUppers Blade down! Claudio drags Blade up to scoop but Blade rakes eyes!

Fans boo but Blade tags Butcher, and Butcher whips Claudio to KNEE him low! Then fireman’s carry SLAM, and then a run for a SHINING WIZARD! Butcher soaks up the heat and he drags Claudio up. Butcher suplexes but Claudio blocks! Claudio suplexes Butcher up and holds him for a second before the SLAM! Fans fire up but Butcher hurries to tag Blade! Blade HEADBUTTS, CHOPS, but Claudio scowls. Claudio EuroUppers, then EuroUppers again! Claudio puts Blade in a corner, EuroUppers again, then whips corner to corner for another EuroUpper! Claudio whips the other way, but BUNNY gets in!?

Fans boo but Bunny says she’s just protecting her hubby! The ref has Bunny back away, Blade swings but Claudio EuroUppers first! Butcher gets in to CLOBBER Claudio! Fans boo but the ref only sees Moxley storming in! Blade soaks up the heat as some blood pours from his forehead, and AEW goes picture in picture.

Blade brings Claudio around, bumps him off buckles, and tags in Butcher. Butcher CHOPS Claudio, bumps him off buckles, then whips him corner to corner hard! Claudio drops to his knees after hitting buckles, and Butcher drags him over. Tag to Blade, the mercs wrench and mug Claudio. Blade fires off in the corner, snapmares Claudio and KICKS him in the back! Bunny applauds but she’s the only one. Blade taunts Moxley, the ref keeps Moxley back, and Blade clamps on a chinlock. Claudio endures, even as Blade thrashes him around. Claudio fights up, throws body shots, but Blade squeezes tighter.

Rampage returns to single picture as Claudio reaches for Moxley. Blade keeps him back while reaching for Butcher, but then Claudio ROCKS Blade! That just sends Blade closer to Butcher! Butcher tags in, he DECKS Moxley! Claudio dodges Butcher but there’s no one to tag! Blade KNEES Claudio and Butcher LARIATS! Butcher drags Claudio up while Blade climbs, FLYING LARIAT SUPLEX COMBO! Cover, TWO!! Claudio is still in this and the mercs are furious! Butcher drags Claudio up, reels him in, and POWER- NO, Claudio slips free! Claudio reaches but Moxley isn’t back! Butcher shoves Claudio but Claudio EuroUppers! And then DISCUS LARIATS!

Fans fire up while both men are down, and Moxley’s back at the corner! Both men crawl, hot tags to Blade and Moxley! The Maniac hits a CUTTER on Blade! Moxley DECKS Butcher, then DIVES to take him out! Moxley storms past Bunny and she seethes as he gest in the ring. Moxley clotheslines Blade, puts him up top and then CHOPS! Moxley climbs, CLAWS Blade’s back, and then brings him up for a SUPERPLEX! Then Moxley drags Blade up for a PILEDRIVER! Cover, TWO!! But Moxley has the wrists for DRAGON STOMPS! Butcher BODY CHECKS Moxley! The ref reprimands but the mercs regroup!

Blade drags Moxley up and Butcher tags in. They set up, DRAG THE- NO, Claudio saves Moxley by carrying him up and outta there! Fans fire up as all four men stare down, and the elbow pads come off! Butcher BOOTS Claudio and Blade ROCKS Moxley, but Claudio and Moxley come back, dodge and DOUBLE LARIAT! The BCC is fired up, Claudio tags in, and they each give the mercs some DRAGON STOMPS! “This is Awesome!” while Bunny panics! Then DEATH RIDER and RICOLA BOMB!! Cover, the BCC wins!

Winners: Jon Moxley & Claudio Castagnoli, by pinfall

Fans are thunderous for that big win, but Moxley gets the mic to say, “Claudio, my friend, let me ask you a question. Does the Blackpool Combat Club care who we get in the ring with?” “NO!” Then here’s another question: “When the BCC gets knocked down, do we stay down?” “HELL NO!” “And finally, what is gonna happen next ween on Dynamite to the Cowboy if he don’t wanna step up?” “Son, you gonna get stepped ON!” The message was sent, and the Cowboy was watching. Will there be a lot of blood and #CowboySh*t in Cincinnati this Tuesday?

 

Backstage interview with Swerve In Our Glory.

Renee Paquette is with Swerve Strickland & Keith Lee, and she notes the huge victory over Billy Gunn on Dynamite. What’s next for them? Well first, Swerve welcomes Renee to AEW, aka “Whose house?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” “Exactly.” Obviously, the next goal is to get the AEW World Tag Team Championships back, but Swerve wants to address Billy. Swerve beat Billy, a guy who is twice Swerve’s size and age, but also… Swerve is already cracking up as he says Mark Sterling stole their gimmick! That’s the funniest thing! Doesn’t Keith think so?

Keith says he’s okay with Swerve reveling in what happened, but Keith wants Swerve to understand something. “I stuck with you because I believe in you. You’re not just good, but I believe you can be great. But you also represent me. Since when do we need to cheat to beat anyone?” And yes, Swerve basically cheated Billy. “The fact is, all of that nonsense means nothing.” Swerve is swerving into the wrong lane. Keith leaves Swerve to think on that. What will Swerve’s response to those insinuations be? Will the Limitless House start to fall apart?

 

Backstage interview with The Dark Order.

Renee is now with Evil Uno, Preston Vance, John Silver & Alex Reynolds, and asks them how they plan on recovering from another heartbreaking loss in that AEW Trios Championship match? Reynolds admits, that was heartbreaking. This is the second time they’ve failed to win those titles. But if there’s one thing they do best, it’s that they pick themselves up- Wait, Jose the Assistant to La Faccion Ingobernable walks in. He tells Vance, “Look at all these sad faces. We’ve been following you around for two months-” Vance says yes, LFI has been stalking him for two months. Jose says, “So then let’s do something about it!”

Vance says it’s been two months of LFI trying to recruit him, and then last week, LFI screws them out of the Trios titles! So now it’s not just affecting Vance, it’s affecting his friends. So Vance has an idea: next week, Vance VS Rush! When- Jose says if… But when Vance wins, LFI leaves him alone for good. The Dark Order shoos Jose, and then they put claws in. Wait, STU GRAYSON IS BACK?! Well, they’re in Canada, so he wasn’t gonna miss this! Player Two is back, and the Dark Order is fired up! Will Number 10 finally finish things with La Faccion? Or has the Dark Order gotten one member back just as they’re about to lose another?

 

The Jericho Appreciation Society is here!

The fans sing Judas as THE OCHO leads the way for Matthew Menard, Angelo Parker, Anna Jay “A S,” and the sports entertainment version of the prodigal son, Daniel Garcia! Red Death rejoined the fold, and we are about to hear why tonight. Jericho applauds Toronto for singing, and then Parker gets the mic. “Torontooo~! The family is back together, baby!” Menard gets a mic to say, “Do you wanna know what makes Daddy Magic’s nipples hard?” Toronto does. “Then how about the fact that the JAS is going to be together FOREVER!? FOREVER!! FOREVER!!”

Anna says, “And now, introducing the man of the hour, the man with the power, and the man too sweet to be sour, Daniel Garcia~!” Fans are torn but many do cheer. Garcia says, “Everybody has been asking me why I did what I did this past Wednesday. And don’t worry, I’m not gonna keep you waiting too long. I’m gonna tell you right now. Chris Jericho has always said that sports entertainers are superior.” Fans boo but Garcia says for a bit, he didn’t believe Jericho. He was being rebellious because the fans all told him he was a pro-wrestler, just like his hero, Bryan Danielson. Fans chant it now, “You’re a Wrestler!”

Garcia says that’s dead, it’s over, don’t say that anymore! Garcia will NEVER be a pro-wrestler! Bryan is Garcia’s hero, he taught Garcia so much about heart, guts, and fighting spirit. But when Jericho hit Garcia in the head with his ROH World title, that taught Garcia how to WIN! That’s when Garcia realized that sports entertainers DO beat pro-wrestlers every single time! “And guys, I got a little confession to make. My name is Daniel Garcia, and I am a sports entertainer!” Fans boo but Garcia just soaks it up.

Jericho says a lesson learned by Garcia and a lesson taught to Bryan that Jericho is the greatest Ring of Jericho Champion EVER! And Jericho vows to continue beating every single ROH World Champion that has ever existed! “BOYS!” Here comes DALTON CASTLE! He and The Boys, the Tate Twins, Brendan & Brent, are currently the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions, but The Peacock has been THE ROH World Champion in the past. Fans cheer as Castle has a mic. “Christopher… Chris. I used to be ROH World Champion, Chris. And to see that championship around your waist, a stupid, naïve, silly little goose… It makes me sick!”

Fans chant, “Silly Goose! Silly Goose!” Castle broke his BACK for that title, and he’s willing to break Jericho’s to give that title and all the fans what they deserve! And that is a champion they can be proud of. “I’m a power peacock, pumping peacock power into this building! The energy in this room is fueled by the electricity in my veins! Do you understand, Chris?! These lights stay on because my heart beats! And if you grant me a title shot next week on Dynamite, OH, I will shock your face right off your body and be the NEW ROH World Champion!” Fans like the sound of that!

Jericho says, “Alright, Peacock. Next week, you want a championship match, you got it. But I’m gonna pull out your feathers one by one by one. The Ring of Jericho Era is here! All Honor the OCHO!” Tuesday Night Dynamite has another title match, and it will have the legacy of ROH on the line with it! Will Castle bring back the honor Jericho is trying to destroy? Or will Jericho cross another former champion off… the list?!

 

AEW hears from Toni Storm and Hikaru Shida.

The Lightning From Down Under says, “This Tuesday on Dynamite, I defend my AEW Women’s World Championship against my friend and tag team partner, Shida.” Hikaru Shida herself asks, “Who is the best? You? Or me? That is the question.” Storm knows what Shida is capable of, how legit she is. Shida says the answer to her own question is: SHIDA! The Shining Samurai, a DOUBLE CHAMPION in Japan, “who carried this division during the pandemic, just like Jon Moxley.” Storm says that just because she respects Shida, doesn’t mean Storm won’t hurt her. Storm vows to walk out still AEW Women’s World Champion.

As if Tuesday wasn’t big enough already! Will Storm strike down Shida? Or will Shida cut through the lightning to take home even more gold?

 

Nyla Rose w/ Vickie Guerrero & Marina Shafir VS Anna Jay “A S” w/ The JAS!

Speaking of gold, the Native Beast has possession of the AEW TBS Champion, but that’s because she snatched it from ringside. Nyla has been acting like the real champion, so the Queenslayer figures she can become the real champion by winning tonight. Will Anna literally take the title to play champion? Or will Nyla show that not all sports entertainers beat pro-wrestlers?

The bell rings and Nyla circles with Anna. They tie up, Nyla shoves Anna down and smirks. Anna comes back, gets around Nyla and ROCKS her! Nyla gets around Anna to waistlock and SLAM! Nyla floats and facelocks, and then lets off like she scored points. Anna KNEES Nyla, ROCKS her, but Nyla ROCKS Anna back! The forearms fly, Anna knees low again, but runs into a scoop and SLAM! Nyla drags Anna up again, scoops her and SLAMS her again, and then drops a leg! Cover, TWO! Nyla drags Anna back up as Vickie coaches her, and Nyla whips Anna into a corner for a SPLASH! Anna sits down and fans fire up as Nyla calls for it!

Nyla goes corner to corner, but Anna moves! Cannonball hits buckles! Menard & Parker talk trash on Nyla but she swipes at them. Anna hurries over to HOTSHOT Nyla down as AEW goes picture in picture.

Anna soaks up the heat and blows kisses. Anna then drops an elbow, covers, TWO! Anna CHOKES Nyla, digs her knee in and pulls Nyla into the knee. The ref counts, Anna lets off and talks smack on fans. Nyla goes to a corner, Anna runs in and HEEL KICKS! Anna talks more trash, blows more kisses, then she CHOKES Nyla on the ropes! Menard & Parker talk more trash but Shafir and Vickie storm over. The ref keeps his eyes on everyone as Vickie stops Parker from choking Nyla. Anna CLUBS away on Nyla, Vickie flirts with Parker, only to SNAP his suspender straps! Ow! Vickie coaches Nyla but Anna bumps Nyla off buckles.

Anna digs her boot in, the ref counts, and Anna lets off at 4. Parker & Menard applaud as Anna stands Nyla up, just to trip her! Anna runs side to side to somersault and KICK! Anna poses, covers, TWO! Nyla hangs tough and Anna is frustrated. Anny digs her knee in again, the ref counts, and Nyla grabs Anna’s face! Anna lets off and Nyla stands up, but Anna throws body shots. Anna CLUBS Nyla, ROCKS her, then pushes her to a cover, TWO! Anna is frustrated but she drags Nyla up. Nyla blocks the whip, reels Anna in and short arm LARIATS! The Native Beast is back in control as AEW goes to break!

Rampage returns and Nyla has Anna hung out on the ropes. Nyla KNEES Anna, then goes to the corner. Nyla climbs up and aims, FLYING KNEE, but Anna moves! Anna HOTSHOTS Nyla, then hurries in to run and BLOCKBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Nyla is still in this and the JAS is frustrated. Anna clamps onto Nyla but fans rally up. Anna shouts, “I’M GONNA CHOKE HER OUT!” She wraps on the QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! Nyla endures, fights up, and snapmares free! Anna goes to a corner, Nyla storms in but into a BOOT! Anna goes up, leaps, but into Nyla’s arms! Nyla RAMS Anna into the corner, then lifts for a BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Winner: Nyla Rose, by pinfall

Anna Jay gave Nyla one hell of a fight, but in the end, the self-proclaimed AEW TBS Champion wins it out! Vickie even has a poster to say, “1-0!” But they’ve poked fun at THE champion, so here comes Jade!! Followed by her Baddies, Leila Grey & Kiera Hogan, #ThatBitch storms her way down to ringside! But then Leila & Kiera say they’ll handle this because security is in the way. Security steps up to keep them back, as determined as they are. So here comes Jade! She BOOTS one, DECKS one, ELBOWS another, DECKS the same one, then DECKS the last one!! But in this confusion, Nyla and team slip away!

The Vicious Vixens have a little laugh at Jade’s expense, but this is far from over! Will Jade look to end Nyla’s “reign” soon enough?

 

The Trustbusters speak.

Ari Daivari tells Hook, “You know exactly what was in that envelope. I’m not trying to recruit Hook, I don’t want him to join the Trustbusters. Now that my trust has kicked in, I was trying to share my wealth with the young man. Hook, there was 50 THOUSAND dollars in that envelope that you tore up to purchase the FTW Championship. So since you like to do things the hard way, how about on Rampage, I take the championship from you by any means necessary?!” Daivari Dinero is playing a dangerous game, will he wish he never went after the Cold-Hearted, Handsome Devil?

 

Private Party’s Contract Ownership: Isiah Kassidy w/ Marq Quen & Matt Hardy VS Ethan Page w/ Stokely Hathaway!

Business is cutthroat in AEW, as Private Party’s contract was sold by the LFI to The Firm! But because Canada’s own All Ego loves a good challenge, he’s willing to gamble. If Kassidy wins, Private Party are free of The Firm and the #HardyParty can finally do things right. But if Kassidy loses, even Matt Hardy is part of The Firm! What happens when the stakes are raised in Toronto?

The bell rings, Ethan throws his jacket at Kassidy like a bad three pointer, and Kassidy catches it. But Ethan BOOTS Kassidy down! Ethan whips Kassidy, CLOBBERS him, and then flexes. Fans rally and duel, Ethan drags Kassidy up to trophy lift and carry around, for a TOSS! Kassidy staggers up and Ethan CLOBBERS him with a shoulder tackle! Hardy coaches Kassidy but Ethan taunts him with a bit of Jeff Hardy’s dance! Hardy says, “DELETE! DELETE!” Ethan blows Hardy a kiss then tells him to kiss this, and he goes back to Kassidy. Kassidy cradles, TWO!! Ethan swings, Kassidy doges to QUEBRADA and tilt-o-whirl DDT! Cover, TWO!!

Ethan bails out but Kassidy builds speed to FLY! The Tornillo takes out Ethan! Kassidy hurries to put Ethan in, but then Stokely gets in the way. Hardy storms up to get in Stokely’s face! Stokely scrambles away, Kassidy goes up and SWANTONS but FLOPS as Ethan dodges! Ethan drags Kassidy up, and steals the TWIST OF FATE! And then crucifix for the EGO’S EDGE!! Cover, Ethan wins!

Winner: Ethan Page, by pinfall (The Firm owns #HardyParty)

The fans are fired up for their hometown hero, but he’s more the villain of the story. What happens now that Matt Hardy is under The Firm’s control?

 

AEW hears from Best Friends.

Orange Cassidy says, “Hey, boys. I won this.” Cassidy is the NEW AEW All-Atlantic Champion, and Chuck Taylor says, “The boys are back on the stairs and that means we’re calling somebody out. Death Triangle.” Trent Beretta says, “I’m thinking we get some gold for all the boys. One, two, three. The Trios titles. What do you say we do it this Tuesday? Tuesday Night Dynamite.” Hands in, “Tuesday Dynamite” on three. Cassidy just now realizes Dynamite’s on a Tuesday this week. Yes, yes it is. Will Cassidy, Trent & Chuckie T turn the tables around on Pac & The Lucha Brothers by taking all their gold?

 

Mark Henry speaks with tonight’s main eventers!

The World’s Strongest Man welcomes us back to Rampage, and he starts with Prince Nana & the Embassy. They’ve been “gunning from the go, whether it be AEW or ROH.” Tonight, they’re up against the #TopGuys and Canada’s own, Shawn Spears! How do they feel this will work out? Nana says that he has Ebony & Ivory, and Brian Cage has him stop before he gets too deep into that. The Machine tells the #TopGuys that they’re facing top body guys. And Spears, they have ten different ways to hurt you tonight. The Pinnacle will find out, “Who better than Cage and the Gates of Agony?”

Spears stops Cage there, he’s killing us all. “You 900 pound charisma vacuum. I’ve been waiting five long months. The Perfect 10 is back. There are a few wrongs I need to make right, and tonight, that starts off on home turf with the world’s greatest tag team.” Dax Harwood says Cage, Liona & Kaun are three incredible athletes, they are going to look great on some 8 by 10s. But tonight’s gonna be a fight. If you can’t tell, Dax never backs down from a fight. On Wednesday, the Embassy said that they had them beat, but FTR found the Perfect 10. Cash Wheeler says “The Embassy might be forever, but The Pinnacle is always on top. So Top Guys, out.”

Then it looks like there’s been enough talk. It’s time for the main event! Liona roars as he heads for gorilla, will he, Kaun & Cage look to turn things upside-down?

Six Man Tag: The Pinnacle VS The Embassy!

Fans are fired up to see #PERFECT10N back again, and he’s fired up to be back! Will he and the TRIPLE CHAMPIONS be perfect even in this reunion?

The trios sort out and Spears starts against Cage. Fans are fired up for “TEN! TEN! TEN!” as he circles with Cage. But then Cage powers Spears up and into the Embassy corner! Cage fires off, tags Kaun, but Spears slips away. Spears and Kaun circle, they tie up, and Kaun wrenches to a wristlock. Spears endures, moves around, and rolls through to handspring and wrench back! Spears hooks Kaun up into an Octopus, then he slips around and around and spins Kaun to snapmare! Spears cartwheels to give us… “TEN!” Fans fire up more and Spears CHOPS Kaun to a corner. Spears storms up and climbs up to rain down fists!

Fans count along, but Cage storms over. Spears DECKS him, then finishes his “TEN!” on Kaun! Liona rushes in but Spears dodges to DROPKICK Liona! Liona stays up, so Spears dropkicks the legs out! Liona stumbles to the floor, Spears PLANCHAS! But Cage & Liona catch him together! So Cash runs in to DROPKICK all that over! Fans fire up and AEW goes picture in picture!

Spears gets up and he points to Cash for kudos on that dropkick. Spears fetches Kaun but Nana distracts the ref. Spears puts Kaun in, but Liona and Cage drag Spears down to DOUBLE APRON SPINEBUSTER! Cash protests but the damage is done. Cage puts Spears in the ring for Kaun, Kaun covers, ONE!! Kaun drags Spears by a facelock, he tags in Liona, and the Gates of Agony mug Spears. Liona taunts the fans, then stalks Spears to a corner. Liona RAMS into Spears again and again! Liona drags Spears over, tags in Cage, and they mug Spears now. Cage ROCKS Spears and he falls over. Cage drags Spears back up but Spears throws body shots!

Spears CHOPS, and CHOPS, and CHOPS! Spears whips, Cage reverses, and Cage runs in to UPPERCUT in the corner! And then SAIDO! Cage soaks up the heat, covers, TWO! Spears survives but Dax was close by. Cage clamps on a chinlock, he squeezes tight, but Spears fights up. Spears throws body shots, gets free, but Cage wrenches and ELBOWS Spears down! Tag to Kaun, Kaun covers, TWO! Kaun stomps Spears, mocks the “TEN! TEN! TEN!” and then drags Spears up. Spears fights but Kaun keeps him from FTR. Spears keeps pushing, but Kaun KNEES low. Kaun has Spears in the Embassy corner, CLUBS him, then sits him up top.

Tag to Liona, then Liona tags Cage. Kaun climbs up to scoop and hit a TOP ROPE BACKBREAKER! Rampage returns to single picture as Spears flops to the apron. Liona goes out to join him, for an APRON SENTON! Liona roars and the Embassy soaks up the heat. Liona feeds Spears to Cage, for a deadlift SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Spears survives but again FTR was within reach just in case. Cage slashes his throat and vows to end this. Cage drags Spears up, fireman’s carries, and F- DDT!! Spears turns things around and fans are thunderous! Spears and Cage crawl, hot tag to Kaun! Kaun intercepts Spears and wags his finger at FTR.

Kaun says this happens on his time, but Spears slips under! Kaun hurries to grab a leg and keep Spears back! Spears BOOTS Kaun away, hot tag to Dax! Dax the Ax JABS away on Kaun then DECKS him! Liona runs in but Dax baits him into the corner! Liona tumbles up and out to the floor! Dax whips Kaun but Kaun ducks, only to run into a SPINEBUSTER! Fans are thunderous for “FTR! FTR!” Cage storms in and he DISCUS LARIATS Dax! Then Cage DECKS Cash! Fans boo but Kaun covers Dax, TWO!! Dax is still in this and Kaun is shocked. Kaun drags Dax up, fireman’s carries, and he tags Cage.

Cage climbs, Kaun his an AIR RAID CRASH! Cage hits a MACHO ELBOW! Cover, but Spears breaks it! Fans fire up, Liona returns to run at Spears! Spears dodges to dump Liona out! Cage fireman’s carries Spears for a F5!! Cage roars, he drags Dax up, and he tags Kaun in. Cage and Kaun coordinate, but Cash saves Dax from the double suplex! They double trip Cage and Kaun, for DOUBLE SHARPSHOOTERS!! Canada is electric for this one! Nana gets on the apron but Spears TOSSES him into the ring! Spears drags Nana around, and we have a THIRD SHARPSHOOTER!! Fans are electric for this shoutout to the Harts!

But Liona runs in to CLOBBER Cash and Spears! Liona grabs Dax while fans boo, and Liona reels Dax in, URENAGE! Fans boo more but Liona snarls as he goes out and aims. Liona runs in, but Cash saves Dax, Liona runs into the steel steps! But Cage grabs Dax, only for Spears to SUPERKICK! Cage comes back, Spears dodges the discus to mule kick a leg! Spears then hits a BASEMENT DDT to the floor! Fans fire up as all six men are down around the ringside! Dax shoulders into Kaun, slingshots up and over, but Kaun sits on the sunset, while holding ropes! Cash slaps those hands away and Dax is out at TWO!

Kaun is upset with Cash and takes a swing, but Cash avoids it! Dax rushes in, Cash sneaks a tack, Dax whips and then tag to Spears! HART ATTACK from FTR! FTR feeds Spears for the C4!! Cover, The Pinnacle wins!!

Winners: The Pinnacle, by pinfall

Now that is how you make a homecoming! It may not have been #PERFECT10N, but- Wait, wait, what? Matt Taven and Maria & Mike Kanellis-Bennett?! THE KINGDOM IS BACK!! And Maria introduces herself as “The First Lady of Professional Wrestling,” and she says The Kingdom had to come out here because FTR call themselves Top Guys, but they’ve never faced The Kingdom. Those ROH World and IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team titles belonged to The Kingdom first. AEW and everything it is built on was on The Kingdom’s backs, but The Kingdom’s never gotten the credit they deserve! “So let me introduce you to the real top guys: Mike Bennett, Matt Taven… We are The Kingdom!”

But then The Embassy attacks The Pinnacle from behind! But The Kingdom is also heading to the ring, The Pinnacle is getting mugged by two teams! That’s 5v3 in favor of The Embassy and Kingdom, and Mike sets Cash up on top. Liona adds a HEADBUTT before Mike brings Cash out in a backpack, DROPKICK STUNNER COMBO!! But wait! HERE COMES WARJOE!!! Samoa Joe & Wardlow are not going to be left out of this! Fans are thunderous as the AEW TNT and ROH World TV Champions storm right up to the ring. Nana bails out, The Embassy follows, as does The Kingdom! They don’t want a fair 5v5, but will they have no choice?


My Thoughts:

A great Rampage here that acted as a go-home to what is becoming a HUGE Tuesday Night Dynamite. Of course, AEW is setting up this special Tuesday episode to be huge because it has to compete with NXT’s go-home to Halloween Havoc. We’re getting FOUR title matches, with a great promo from Best Friends to call out Death Triangle, a great vignette from Storm and Shida before they have their… Well, is it no longer interim? Is Thunder Rosa going to be out of action so long that Storm is just THE champion by default? Either way, Storm VS Shida is going to be awesome, but I would think Storm wins because otherwise Shida has three belts.

We also got a great opening tag match from BCC VS Butcher & Blade. Naturally, BCC wins because Moxley needs momentum going into his title match with Hangman. We got a very good group promo from the Jericho Appreciation Society to explain Garcia’s reason for returning to the group. And while I was expecting Jay Lethal, I’m gladly surprised that Dalton Castle stepped up to the plate. Castle is a great example of pro-wrestling skill and sports entertainment charisma, he’s a great next opponent for Jericho, but as such, Jericho is surely winning. We might even see Jericho, Menard & Parker going for the ROH Six Man titles at some point just to add to the JAS “defacing” the ROH legacy.

Great promo from Dark Order to basically adjust from not having Vance VS Andrade, and it was great that Stu Grayson came back. I hope he sticks around, AEW had a chance to make Uno & Stu tag title contenders, maybe they do that right this time. Good promo from Daivari calling out Hook, but I’m thinking Hook beats Daivari. Hopefully it’s more of a competitive match so we can see what more Hook has as a wrestler. Good promo from Swerve and Keith, they’re of course back on the dysfunction story and that’s good for the intrigue. Ethan VS Kassidy was not as strong or as long of a match as I had hoped, but I’m even more surprised Ethan won. This will of course lead to #HardyParty reluctantly doing Heel things until they refuse and fight back.

Really good match from Nyla VS Anna, and Anna looked strong even though she lost. The Baddies storming down to the ring was a natural move, but that was rather clever that Nyla and team managed to sneak away. I wonder if Diamante will get in on this, as she has teamed with Nyla in the past, and she has her real-life relationship with Kiera Hogan to play off of. But I would hope they think to write this with a ringside ban on everyone so that it’s just Jade and Nyla for the title. Jade’s proven she doesn’t need interference to win, but she has used it when things weren’t going her way. She should reach 40-0 without even so much as a distraction if it’s to look strong.

And a great trios main event. Great to see Spears back, and of course he and FTR win out. The Kingdom making a reunion and AEW debut was a shocker, and now there’s a team that might actually take those ROH World Tag Team Championships off FTR. But with that final brawl where #WARJOE ran off The Kingdom and Embassy, I wonder if we’ll get Blood & Guts match for the Fall. I mean, why not? It’s a match type, it doesn’t need to be limited to one time a year like WWE’s done with Hell in a Cell. Plus, Blood & Guts with these ten guys would be awesome.

My Score: 8.7/10

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?

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

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?

Winner: Serena Deeb, by submission

The Professor didn’t even need the full Serenity Lock, she’s just that good. Deeb gets the mic and says, “The Women’s Division in AEW is heating up, baby!” Fans cheer that! “Now, I put the locker room on notice when I came back, but I’ll remind you again. Any woman that wants to step up in this ring, any woman that wants to join this Women’s Division, the Professor will be here waiting in Deeb’s Dojo, waiting for the best, because I’m here to elevate this Women’s Division!” The fans cheer that, too! Deeb says, “When The Professor wrestles, the lights don’t turn out. When The Professor wrestles, the picture doesn’t go black ‘n’ white.

“But when The Professor is in the ring, I wrestle! And Serena Deeb is back to claim the division, and I’m here to put the wrestling back in All Elite Wrestling!” The fans fire up for that one! Deeb has called out the champions, will she get to take a title away from one of those champions?

 

Eddie Kingston makes his way to the ring!

Springfield cheers on The Mad King as he joins commentary, just as Bryan said he would. But he isn’t putting on the headset just yet, he must want to wait on the legend. Will Eddie’s hero slay the American Dragon? Or will Bryan beat Blue Thunder like he did Blue Justice?

Bryan Danielson VS Jun Akiyama!

The bell rings and Bryan stares Jun down as the fans rally up. They both hear the fans mixing “YES! YES! YES!” and “HAI! HAI! HAI!” The two circle, feel things out, and Jun backs Bryan down.

Bryan powers up and out but Jun runs him over! Things keep going, Jun runs Bryan over! Bryan trips Jun, turns him over, and hooks up the legs. The fans rally as Bryan grabs at the arms.

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

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.

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!

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.

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!!

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
