Darby Allin VS Jay Lethal w/ Satnam Singh & Sonjay Dutt!

The Relentless One doesn’t care who it is that knows his supposed weakness, he’s taking Jay Lethal on head-on! But will we find out just who this “old friend” who knows them both so well?

Darby rushes Lethal as he makes his entrance! Fans fire up as they brawl at the ramp! Lethal RAMS Darby into the apron, DECKS him, then clears the media out of the way to TOSS Darby over the timekeeper’s table! But Darby’s right back up and he LEAPS onto Lethal! Darby rains down hands, puts Lethal in the ring, and then slides in. The bell rings and Darby CROSSBODIES Lethal into ropes, tumbling out of the ring himself! Darby drags Lethal out to RAM into railing as Sonjay & Satnam finally catch up to Lethal. Darby slides back in the ring, builds speed, but Satnam stands in the way!

Darby slides out, goes around Satnam, but Lethal hits a hard body shot! Lethal brings Darby around, ROCKS him, then hits a monkey flip! But Darby lands on his feet! But he can’t stop his momentum enough, he still hits steel steps! Darby falls over, Lethal refreshes the count, and he stalks Darby to the railing. Lethal drags Darby under the railing, and then recreates that Figure Four with the garage door! Darby endures and the ref counts, Lethal lets off at 4! Lethal goes back to the ring while Darby crawls out of the railing. Fans boo but Lethal soaks up the heat. Sonjay mocks Darby as Darby hobbles into the ring.

Lethal stomps Darby to the apron as fans rally up. Darby drags himself up with the ropes, Lethal runs in, but Darby elbows him back! And then boots, only for Lethal to block! Lethal puts that leg on the ropes to STOMP the knee! And then APRON GERMAN SUPLEX! Darby flops to the floor and Lethal grins as AEW goes picture in picture.

Sonjay talks up Lethal while the ref checks Darby. Darby writhes but he’s still in this. Lethal just waits as Darby slowly drags himself up again. Lethal goes out to the steel steps and drags Darby up to fireman’s carry. Lethal gives Darby SNAKE EYES to the steps! Darby falls back but Lethal puts him in the ring to cover, TWO! Lethal pushes Darby down again, TWO! Lethal stomps the bad ribs, drags Darby up and whips him to ropes. Lethal FLAPJACKS Darby, and Darby almost lands on his head! Cover, TWO!! Darby is still in this but Lethal keeps on him with knees to the back! Lethal drops knee after knee, then ties Darby’s legs up.

Lethal pulls Darby back but Darby gets the ROPEBREAK! Lethal lets off at 4, drags Darby up and brings him around, to hit an atomic BACKBREAKER! Fans rally up for Darby but Lethal pretends not to hear them. Lethal puts Darby in a cobra twist! Darby endures, even as Lethal punches him in the ribs, and still Darby reaches out to a ROPEBREAK! Lethal lets off, brings Darby around, but Darby fights the back suplex with a headlock and punches. Dynamite returns to single picture as Lethal CLUBS Darby in return. Lethal tries again, but Darby fishhooks the nose! Lethal throws Darby away, Darby lands on his feet, and ducks ‘n’ dodges to COFFIN SPLASH!

Fans rally, Darby runs in at the corner, but into KNEES! Lethal thwarts a second Coffin Splash, and he brings Darby in for a dragon sleeper. Lethal hooks the leg, FISHERMAN FACEBUSTER! Fans applaud that unique modification, and now Lethal goes to the corner. Fans boo as Lethal climbs up, MACHO ELBOW into a GHOST PIN! TWO!! Lethal escapes but Darby sweeps! Cover, ONE as Lethal goes Matrix! Lethal handsprings, into a body scissors! Darby has the SLEEPER!! Lethal flails but he’s caught! Lethal manages to turn over and stand, but Darby squeezes tight! Lethal stands, and he RAMS Darby into buckles! Darby still holds on!

Lethal is fading, but he RAMS Darby into buckles again! Fans duel as Lethal is fading! Lethal stands again, and goes back, but Darby sends him into buckles! THROWBACK STUNNER! Lethal falls over and Darby sees his chance! Fans fire up as Darby goes to a corner and climbs! Darby reaches the top but Lethal bails out of the ring. Fans boo but Darby hops down. Satnam is in the way again and he dares Darby to try. Darby builds speed, to DIVE! He bounces off Satnam!! Fans lose their minds, but then the ref EJECTS Satnam & Sonjay! Sonjay & Satnam are furious, and Lethal tries to reason with the ref.

But then someone cosplaying Sting attacks Darby with a baseball bat!! That can’t be the real Sting, right? Lethal hits a LETHAL INJECTION on Darby!! Cover, Lethal wins!

Winner: Jay Lethal, by pinfall

It took all the tricks in the book and a totally fake Sting, but Lethal ties up the series with Darby! Lethal and his friends hug Cole Karter! The Factory’s Cole Karter helped Lethal take out Darby, and now he helps them stomp Darby! But wait! Here’s the REAL STING!! The music is playing, the lights are blue, Lethal, Karter, Sonjay & Satnam hurry to the ramp, but someone gets in the ring behind Darby! That’s not Sting, or even a fake Sting, it’s JEFF JARRETT! And he gives Darby a SMASH HIT!! Double J gets the mic to tell Darby, “You just got a lesson from the Last Outlaw. You ask what that lesson is. Darby, whatever you worship, it becomes your weakness.

“Yeah, look at that pool of blood.” Oh, wow, there is quite a bit of blood from the back of Darby’s head. But Jarrett says that since Darby idolizes Sting, Sting has become Darby’s weakness. “And now that I’ve got Darby Allin outta the way, I’ve got a message not only for the entire AEW roster, not only for you, Schiavone, and the other clowns that you have up there with you,” and maybe the cameraman, too! For every bozo in production, this goes for you, too! But most importantly, this goes “to the insane, the rabid, the delusional AEW fanbase.” Jarrett’s family got into this business back in 1946. That means for over 75 YEARS, three generations, wherever the Jarretts went, they left an impact.

Jarrett is a two-time Hall of Famer, a 12 time world champion, and he assures you from day one- Fans chant “You Still Suck!” Jarrett says from day one, his fingerprints, his father’s fingerprints, his grandmother’s fingerprints, Mrs. Christine Jarrett, have been all over AEW! But Jarrett assures us, before he’s done with this place, there will be full body bags! “Choke on that, slap nuts!” The Last Outlaw fires the first shot against Darby, Sting, and all of AEW, but will he, Lethal and the rest run roughshod?


Jon Moxley speaks.

“AEW Dynamite live, I love that energy, that electricity here in Baltimore, Maryland. I can’t get enough of it. It’s a drug I love. And this is just another night for me, but for young Mr. Lee Moriarty, this is the biggest night of his life. A World Title Eliminator, he has the chance to change his fortunes forever, if he can get the job done tonight. All he has to do tonight is rely on his talents, his athleticism, his skills, of which there are many.

“Maybe Lee Moriarty feels a little snubbed by the Blackpool Combat Club. But hey, that’s not true, we didn’t snub you. I actually really like you a lot. But me and Danielson just decided you’re just not mean enough. You’re just not quite nasty enough. You’re just not quite… violent enough for the BCC, just yet. But we’re not going to leave you out in the cold. After all, we’re teachers. Tonight, I’m going to give you a lesson in pain and perseverance when I back you into a corner like a wild animal and make you fight your way out.

“You’re gonna have to dig down deep, into your guts, in that place where bad intentions that we don’t like to talk about lie. And there’s only one way out, Lee. And that’s through me. So if you’ve got any, uh, unrequited anger or angst or revenge boiling somewhere deep down in your body, maybe you got picked on when you were in high school, something like that, now would be the time to bring it to the surface. I want you to be mean, I want you to be nasty, I want you to be violent. I ain’t got time for anything else!” The AEW World Champion is daring #TAIGASTYLE to bare his fangs, will this come back to bite him?


Someone is editing AEW history.

Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks win the AEW World Trios Championships at All Out, only for someone to stop it there, and replace it with Death Triangle’s win the next Dynamite. And then, The Elite is replaced on the posters with Death Triangle. How can All Elite Wrestling be that without The Elite?


AEW World Title Eliminator: Jon Moxley VS Lee Moriarty w/ Stokely Hathaway!

The Maniac knows he has Maxwell Jacob Friedman at Full Gear, but he has some business to take care of with The Firm after they jumped him. Will Moxley put all that to bed here and have a clear path to New Jersey? Or can Moriarty take advantage of a sore and distracted champion?

Ethan Page joins commentary to watch Lee “smack around the champion.” The bell rings, Moriarty has his dukes up as he circles with Moxley. Baltimore rallies for Mox as he approaches and ties up with Moriarty. Moriarty shoots in, Moriarty gets Moxley with a cravat, but Moxley shoots around to trip Moriarty up. Moxley flips Moriarty, floats to a facelock, but Moriarty slips that onto Moxley. Moxley slips free and fans applaud the exchange. Moxley and Moriarty tie up again, Moxley KICKS a leg, but Moriarty KICKS back! They go back and forth, KICK for KICK, then Moxley DECKS Moriarty with a forearm!

Moxley puts Moriarty in a corner, climbs up and rains down fists! Fans count all the way to TEN, then Moxley BITES Moriarty! The ref reprimands, Stokely protests, but Moxley lets off. Moxley brings Moriarty out for a HALF HATCH, cover, TWO! Moxley shifts to rear mount and put on a chinlock. Moriarty fights up, gets to the ropes, and the ref calls the ropebreak. Moxley lets off but Moriarty throws an elbow! Moriarty ROCKS, KICKS and CHOPS Moxley against ropes, then he soaks up the heat. Moriarty runs to UPPERCUT in the corner, then he whips corner to corner to UPPERCUT again! Moxley reverses the whip this time to clothesline!

Moxley whips corner to corner now, he runs in, but Moriarty dodges and Moxley POSTS himself! Moriarty brings Moxley out, hammerlock DDT! Both men are down as AEW goes picture in picture.

Stokely smiles while Moxley writhes and gets to the apron. Moriarty hurries to run and baseball slide Moxley out of the ring! Moriarty then goes out, hoists Moxley up, and hammerlocks before the scoop and SLAM to the floor! Moriarty soaks up the heat, Stokely talks some smack, and Moriarty refreshes the count. But Moxley CHOPS! Moriarty hits the bad arm, uppercuts, then whips Moxley into the steel steps! Moxley writhes, clutching that arm, but Stokely pats Moriarty on the back. Moxley gets in the ring, Moriarty follows and UPPERCUTS in the corner. Moriarty digs his boot in, the ref counts and Moriarty lets off.

Moriarty soaks up more heat as he lightly bounces on his feet. Moriarty drags Moxley up, wrenches the arm, and UPPERCUTS the shoulder! And again! Moriarty whips to WRING Moxley out, and he drops a leg on the arm! Moriarty scissors the arm, drops an elbow on the elbow, and Stokely applauds. Fans rally for Moxley and he CHOPS, ROCKS and ROCKS Moriarty again! Moxley reels Moriarty in, but Moriarty back drops! Moxley sunset flips but Moriarty rolls through to PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO! Moriarty snarls and drags Moxley back up to facelock. Moriarty suplexes but Moxley blocks as Dynamite returns to single picture.

Moxley suplexes Moriarty for the X PLEX! Moriarty lands on his arm and Ethan is upset! Moxley crawls after Moriarty, and he throws a forearm! Moriarty gives it back but Moxley throws another! Moxley fires boxing elbows, whips, but Moriarty BOOTS Moxley away. Moriarty springboards for a FLYING FOREARM! Then a HALF HATCH! Bridging cover, TWO! Moriarty rains down elbows and forearms on Moxley! Moriarty talks trash on Moxley, and he knuckle locks the hands for DRAGON STOMPS! Fans boo but Moxley is fighting his way up! Fans fire up as Moxley and Moriarty are forehead to forehead!

Moxley ROCKS Moriarty with a forearm, Moriarty returns it, but they both keep the knuckle locks! Moxley throws more forearms, then he flips Moriarty over the back to get free and LARIAT! Moxley crawls to the cover, ONE, but Moxley has the knuckle locks again! Fans fire up as Moxley gives Moriarty DRAGON STOMPS! Moxley drags Moriarty up for DEATH- NO, Moriarty fights that, wrenches and TWEAKS the arm! Moriarty wrenches, hammerlocks, but Moxley spins through to CUTTER! Cover, TWO!! Ethan breathes easier on commentary but Moxley crawls after Moriarty again.

Fans rally and Moxley dares Moriarty to bring it. Moriarty throws forearms but Moxley just takes them! Moxley eggs him on, then he SLAPS Moriarty! Moriarty is wobbling as Moxley paints him with palm strikes! Moriarty avoids the lariat to fire off hands, but Moxley blocks a kick! So Moriarty KNEES free! And SAIDO! But Moxley’s right back up!? SAIDO!! But Moriarty’s right back up! But Moxley turns saido into takeover, and he wants the kimura! Moriarty resists so Moxley goes for an armbar! But Moriarty rolls through that to flip Moxley over, STF, into BORDER CITY STRETCH! Moxley endures, but Moriarty shifts to rain down forearms to the back!

Fans rally but the BORDER CITY STRETCH returns! Moxley endures more, moves around, makes it a cradle, TWO!! Moxley rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS!! Moriarty manages to block one, but Moxley makes it an ARMBAR!! Moriarty taps, Moxley wins!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission (denies Moriarty a title opportunity)

Ethan storms off commentary and rushes the ring! He BOOTS Moxley down! Fans boo as All Ego seethes and stands over Moxley. Stokely puts Moxley’s belt over him, but will The Firm have this title once Ethan Page wins the World Title Eliminator Tournament?


Renee Paquette has a sit-down interview with Saraya and Britt Baker.

Well, she was supposed to, but only Saraya is here. Britt felt she didn’t need to be here, apparently, but that’s fine, Renee and Saraya can still talk. Saraya says she’s used to this now. She knows what it takes to be a star. With Britt, she doesn’t care about anyone but herself. She doesn’t care about the division, about the locker room, or anyone apart from herself. When Saraya grew up in this industry, the 30 years of her life, 17 of those were wrestling. Saraya once had to wrestle the same day she got hit by a car! Saraya had to build divisions everywhere she went, so Britt should feel lucky to have even had this interview.

Renee says they’re both here, this is an official welcome back to wrestling for Saraya. But why now? And why AEW? “There is something special about AEW. When it started three years ago, it was kind of that rebel company, and you see all these amazing faces go over there,” and Saraya just felt it’d be so great to be part of that. Once the timing came around, it was just perfect, and the division needed some help to build itself up even more. It’s already fantastic, but Saraya felt she could give it just that little bit more. Then that leads to Renee’s second question, “the elephant in the room,” where is Saraya medically?

We all know five years ago, Saraya got injured in the ring, that led to some spinal stenosis and lack of spinal fluid in the spinal cord. It seemed like she hung up the boots, but now she’s back, so where does she stand? Saraya says she wasn’t going to do this today, but there’s one more doctor she needs to consult. Saraya says we’ll know in a week’s time, what will be the state of Saraya’s in-ring career?


Tony Schiavone interviews William Regal backstage.

Schiavone says November 19th, Full Gear’s main event is Moxley VS MJF for the AEW World Championship. Regal says after what he witnessed last week, it showed to him, “Dear Max, that you have all the potential in the world, but you still have a long way to go to being a true villain. At Full Gear, all the potential in the world isn’t going to help you become the AEW World Champion when you have to face a real demon in Jon Moxley.” Will Lord Regal’s assertion be true? Or will MJF unlock something that will allow him to finally make it over to the other side?


The Acclaimed heads to the ring!

Platinum Max has the mic to say, “Yo, listen! Acclaimed on the mic and we ill with the word play. Make some noise, cuz it’s Billy Gunn’s birthday! And I hope you don’t feel vexed. We didn’t get a cake cuz it wasn’t in your meal prep. Swerve’s acting like he’s on drugs. I’m a make his ass pay like I’m Elon Musk! We’ll beat his ass silly, and let’s have everybody say Happy Birthday to Billy.” Fans cheer and Anthony Bowens says, “BALTIMOOOOOORE~! The Acclaimed have arrived!” The Acclaimed scissor finger, but that’s because Billy’s fingers are messed up from what Swerve did to him on Friday. Fans sing, “Oh~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” to make up for it.

Bowens says they are so glad the fans are enthusiastic, because this was a very tough weekend. Last Rampage, “Sneaky Swerve did some damage to Daddy Ass’s fingers, and now he can’t scissor.” Scissoring is taking over the world! The World Series! Arenas all around the world! Right, cameraman? YEAH~! But of course, they can’t have a Daddy Ass birthday bash without scissoring, so they’re starting off hot with gift number one! The brand new Acclaimed foam SCISSOR FINGERS~! They put those on Billy, “so that when a sneaky snake like Swerve breaks your hands, you can still…” “SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS!” There it is!

Caster sees the great signs, the scissor shirts, and big scissors, all to celebrate Daddy Ass. And it’s true, AEW now stands for Acclaimed Every Wednesday. And it’s a fact of life that EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! And furthermore, everyone loves Daddy Ass. So who brought gifts for Daddy? Throw up some signs! Throw up some scissors! Who wants to give Billy a gift? There’s all sorts of messages, like “Happy Birthday, Daddy Ass!” “Scissor Me Timbers!” Wait, a Sneaky Swerve Dartboard? Not bad. But Caster chooses the scissors with the party hat! They bring that in for Daddy! Happy birthday from everyone here in Baltimore!

Oh, but they’re not done yet! No, far from it. Billy’s been in the business for over 30 years and has accomplished a lot. An ELEVEN-TIME Tag Team Champion. That’s right! A two-time tag team of the year winner. That’s right! And in 2006, he was part of the worst segment of all time anywhere. That’s right… Reverse battle royal or something? That was a thing. But more importantly, Billy’s a Hall of Famer, a stand-up guy, and is now… the WORLD’S GREATEST DADDY!! They modified a trophy just for Billy and fans cheer as he accepts the award. Fans chant “DADDY ASS!” and Bowens says there’s one last thing.

Bowens says he planned so much more, like special guests from Billy’s past, but unfortunately, two cancelled last minute, and the rest were just upset Billy didn’t go to the reunion. Billy does a “SUCK IT!” for old time’s sake! But most importantly, the last couple of months, he’s been a mentor and father figure to The Acclaimed and he has meant the world to them. This final gift touches the soul. They filed paperwork, and they have a certificate of adoption! The Sultan of Scissors, Anthony Bowens, has signed it! Platinum Max Caster has signed it! The Acclaimed just need a signature from Billy!

Fans chant “Sign It! Sign It!” Billy says, “I get to be your daddy?” But wait! Billy’s biological sons, the “Ass~ Boys!” are here! Austin & Colten Gunn want this to stop. Did their invitation get lost in the mail? They didn’t get invited to their father’s birthday party? Billy says The Acclaimed are his sons! Well, even though they weren’t invited, being that they’re his lovable sons, they still got him a gift. Billy turns around into a BOOT from W. Morrissey! And then Morrissey CLOBBERS The Acclaimed! The Gunn Sons beat up on the tag champs while Morrissey stomps Billy! Fans boo but here comes FTR!

Fans fire up as Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood storm down to the ring! The Firm bails, but the ROH-AAA-IWGP Tag Team Champions stand tall with the AEW World Tag Team Champions. But FTR also pick up the AEW World Tag Team titles. FTR hand the belts over to the champions, this match surely to come down the line. But with Gunn Club in the way first, will Dax & Cash make sure Austin & Colten #FearTheRepercussions of their actions?


Tony Schiavone interviews Britt Baker backstage.

And she interrupts him, too, as he welcomes us to her interview with her people on her time and in her world. “What? You thought I was going to jump just because you said to, Saraya and Renee? Well, I have been a victim of conspiracy for far too long, so I’m not showing up to your party.” Jamie Hayter is also here, and she says she is sick of it all. She’s sick of the BS! She just wants to wrestle! Britt does, too! They should wrestle together as the best female tag team on the planet. Find them a team to face on Friday. Yours Truly, Britt Baker, DMD.


ROH World Championship Open Challenge: Chris Jericho w/ Daniel Garcia & Jake Hager VS ???

The Wizard, Le Champion, continues his mission to desecrate, destroy and degrade the legacy of ROH, and he doesn’t care who it is, he just wants to face any former champion of ROH! Singles, tag, trios, Women’s Division, it doesn’t matter to him! But then, who will accept that challenge in hopes of shutting Jericho up? Jericho gets the mic to say, “So last week, after Claudio, that jackass, took a tainted victory over The Ocho, it made me mad! And now, like I said, I am ready for an open challenge tonight, against any former ROH champion. World champion, tag team champion, Pure Champion, Women’s Champion, I DON’T CARE! I’ll even whip Lamar Jackson’s ass!”

Fans get riled up hearing that but Lamar just stays put. Jericho says tonight will be another monumental night in the Ring of Jericho Era! ALL HONOR THE OCHO! But who is it? Show yourself! Jericho wants to know! “BOOM BOOM! Colt Cabana!” Fans go nuts! Cabana is back and ready to go, will he go from former tag team champion to NEW ROH World Champion? The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if Jericho wins this with honor or sports entertainment!

The bell rings and fans are thunderous with “WELCOME BACK!” Cabana and Jericho step up to each other, and Jericho offers the Code of Honor. Cabana takes it, and they go forehead to forehead. Cabana pushes Jericho into the corner, but he lets off. Jericho shoves, Cabana shoves, and then Cabana fires off! The ref counts and Cabana backs off. Jericho storms up, Cabana headlocks, Jericho powers out but Cabana runs Jericho over! Fans cheer, Jericho gets up and ties up with Cabana. Cabana headlocks, Jericho powers out but Cabana runs him over! Cabana then fakes Jericho out to KICK him! Cabana rains down fists and fans are thunderous!

Cabana lets off, he kicks Jericho to the corner and whips corner to corner. Jericho reverses, but Cabana BOOTS him! Cabana goes up, Jericho gets under, but Cabana sunset flips from below! TWO, and Jericho stands up for Cabana to CHOP, and clothesline against ropes! And again! And then forearms! Cabana whips, Jericho holds ropes and bails out, regrouping with Hager & Garcia. Cabana pursues and CLUBS Jericho! And ROCKS him! And ELBOWS him! Jericho CHOPS, and CHOPS, but Cabana snarls. Jericho CLUBS and ROCKS Cabana, puts him in the ring and climbs up, but Cabana ROCKS him in return!

Cabana throws haymakers, hops up to to get Jericho in the fireman’s carry, but Jericho and Cabana fall to the floor! Garcia & Hager check on Jericho while AEW goes picture in picture.

Jericho and Cabana stir, the ref has Garcia and Hager back off, and Jericho gets in the ring. Cabana sits up, Jericho grabs at him from the apron but Cabana ROCKS Jericho! Cabana gets on the apron, ELBOWS Jericho, then bumps him off buckles! Cabana brings Jericho side to side to bump him off more buckles! And again the other way, but Jericho triangle jumps to DROPKICK! Cabana goes down and Garcia mocks him with applause. Jericho soaks up the heat, Garcia dares Cabana to get up and fight, but the ring count climbs. Jericho mocks the fans, flips them off, and then goes out to fetch Cabana.

Jericho puts Cabana in the ring, storms in after him, and slaps him around! And even more! Jericho slaps Cabana more and more, talks trash, sits Cabana up, but Cabana counter slaps! And again! And again! Cabana CHOPS, runs, but into a throat chop! Jericho drags Cabana up to back suplex! Cocky cover, TWO! Jericho paces, taunts the fans, soaks up the heat again, and goes back to Cabana as he sits up. Jericho throws hands, Cabana eggs him on, and Dynamite returns to single picture as the forearms go back and forth! Fans rally as Cabana gets the edge but boo as Jericho takes it back. Jericho runs, into a HIP ATTACK!

Fans fire up and Cabana DOUBLE CHOPS! And DOUBLE CHOPS! Cabana has Jericho in a corner, CHOPS again, and then whips corner to corner. Jericho reverses, Cabana comes back with a forearm! Jericho is down, Cabana goes up, FALLING SPLASH! Cover, TWO!! Fans rally and Cabana keeps his eyes on Jericho. Cabana goes up the corner again, but Jericho trips him up! Cabana lands on his apple core and Jericho CLUBS him on the back. Jericho drags Cabana from the top rope with an Electric Chair, but Cabana CLUBS and victory rolls! TWO!! Jericho escapes, trips Cabana, and tries to turn Cabana!

Fans rally as Cabana kicks Jericho away! Cabana drags Jericho into a cradle, TWO!! Jericho swings, misses, and Cabana JABS, JABS, JABS! Flip, flop- EYE POKE from Jericho! But Cabana ducks the Judas Effect, backslide, into the BILLY GOAT’S CURSE!! Cabana has his inverted Boston Crab and Jericho endures! Fans rally, Jericho fights up, Cabana leans on the hold, but Jericho turns over! Jericho kicks Cabana, but Cabana comes back with the SUPERMAN CLUTCH! Cover, but Hager sweeps the hands! Fans boo while Garcia and Hager fire up. But Cabana ASAI MOONSAULTS Hager & Garcia down!!

Fans are thunderous, Cabana runs in to FLYING APPLE! He keeps moving, but runs into a CODE BREAKER! Cover, Jericho wins!

Winner: Chris Jericho, by pinfall (still ROH World Champion)

Score one more for sports entertainment! Cabana’s shocking return had a disappointing ending, will the Ring of Jericho Era continue whether we like it or not?

But wait! Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker drag Ian Riccaboni from commentary! They bring him to Jericho and Jericho SLAPS Ian! And snatches his glasses away! Jericho mocks Ian, SLAPS him, BREAKS the glasses, then aims with the world title belt! But CLAUDIO attacks! Claudio tackles Jericho, only for Hager and the rest to drag him away! Claudio gets mugged, but then here comes BRYAN DANIELSON! The American Dragon takes out Parker but Garcia is after him! Sammy Guevara rushes out to add more on the JAS side, but then WHEELER YUTA attacks Sammy! BCC and JAS brawl but the JAS has numbers!

Security rushes out, fans want to “Let Them Fight!” but this is not happening here. What will it take to end the war between pro-wrestlers and sports entertainers?


Renee interviews Death Triangle backstage.

She’s with the AEW World Trios Championships, but Rey Fenix has his shot at the All-Atlantic Championship up next. He could become the NEW Double Champion, what is he feeling? Fenix says he’s feeling happy, he’s feeling great, and ready! Tonight, he will be the NEW All-Atlantic Champion! #DoubleDouble! PAC speaks up, and he says as someone who knows something being Double Champion, if Fenix wants revenge, like real revenge, he may not have wanted to use the bell hammer last time, and that was his prerogative. But this time, it’d be legal. Pac is telling him now, “the hammer, Rey. If you’re smart about it my friend, trust me. This tonight, can be your golden ticket.”

But hey, the choice is his. Just something to think about. Pac leaves, and Penta says they should talk about this. Will the Firebird do as The Bastard would? Or will he stay true to himself?


AEW All-Atlantic Championship Triple Threat: Orange Cassidy VS Rey Fenix w/ Alex Abrahantes VS Luchasaurus w/ Christian Cage!

Not only is this match about Freshly Squeezed upping the ante on himself again, and not only is this about Luchasaurus and Fenix both going for their first taste of singles gold in AEW, but this is about having an All-Atlantic City Dream Match this Friday on Rampage! Who wins both belt and contract in one fell swoop?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who wins a dream come true!

The bell rings, Fenix and Luchasaurus both eye Cassidy while fans rally up. Fenix and Cassidy then agree they should go after the bigger guy! They fire off hands, but Luchasaurus shoves them away! Luchasaurus CHOPS Cassidy down then choke grips Fenix, but Fenix breaks free to CHOP, mule kick and- UPPERCUT from Luchasaurus! Luchasaurus choke grips Cassidy but Fenix SUPERKICKS! Cassidy SUPERKICKS! DOUBLE DROPKICKS send Luchasaurus out! Fans fire up and Cassidy stares down with Fenix. Cassidy unleashes the “devastating” shin kicks! Fenix whips Cassidy, Cassidy reverses, Fenix tiger feints but Cassidy ducks the heel kick!

Cassidy runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then arm-drags Fenix away! Fenix goes to a corner, Cassidy runs in but into a BOOT! Fenix goes out, ducks the haymaker, then hops up to KICK Cassidy! Fenix runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges to springboard FLYING ARM-DRAG! Cassidy avoids the stomps then runs, to tilt-o-whirl-whirl-whirl DDT! Cover, TWO! Ghost pin, TWO! Fenix kips up but so does Cassidy, and fans fi reup for that exchange. Cassidy catches his breath, Fenix nods, but Luchasaurus gets back in. Fenix & Cassidy run, dodge, but get run over! Fans boo but Luchasaurus POSTS Fenix! Luchasaurus suplexes Cassidy, and SLAMS him down!

Cassidy goes to a corner, Luchasaurus runs in to back elbow! He back elbows Fenix, then Cassidy again! Fenix dodges, but Luchasaurus comes back to DOUBLE LARIAT! Fans boo but Luchasaurus just soaks up the heat while AEW goes picture in picture.

Luchasaurus storms over to Cassidy and drags him up. Luchasaurus puts him in a corner, CHOPS him, then stands him up again. Luchasaurus whips corner to corner hard and Cassidy bounces off buckles. Christian Cage seems confident enough to leave ringside and join commentary as Luchasaurus chokes Cassidy at the ropes. Luchasaurus lets off to drag Cassidy back up and scoop. Luchasaurus hits a SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, Fenix breaks it! Luchasaurus UPPERCUTS, but Fenix CHOPS back! Fenix CHOPS again, but Luchasaurus UPPERCUTS Fenix down! Cover, TWO! Luchasaurus CHOKES Fenix!

The ref reprimands but he can’t disqualify, but still Luchasaurus lets off. Luchasaurus drags Fenix up, Fenix throws a forearm, but Luchasaurus DECKS him! Luchasaurus whips Fenix hard into the corner and Fenix hits chest first! Fenix falls, so Luchasaurus UPPERCUTS Cassidy! Cassidy flops in a corner and out to the floor, so Luchasaurus goes back to Fenix. Luchasaurus sits Fenix up but Fenix eggs him on. Luchasaurus kicks Fenix around, drags him up, but Fenix CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! Luchasaurus tosses Fenix to a corner and UPPERCUTS again! Luchasaurus drags Fenix up as Dynamite returns to single picture.

Fenix fires off body shots but Luchasaurus CLUBS him down! Luchasaurus drags Cassidy up, suplexes, but STUN-DOG MILLIONAIRE hits! And Fenix SUPERKICKS! Luchasaurus goes down just as Christian was praising him! Cassidy whips Fenix in to JUMP SOBAT Luchasaurus! Feed to the ORANGE PUNCH! Luchasaurus falls out of the ring, Christian is upset, and now Fenix stares Cassidy down. Fenix shoves Cassidy, but they see Luchasaurus is up at ramp side. Fenix & Cassidy build speed, and DOUBLE DIVE! But Luchasaurus SWATS Fenix while he catches Cassidy! Luchasaurus then SHOVES Cassidy into steel steps!

Luchasaurus stalks Fenix to the timekeeper’s area, to CHOKE SLAM him through the table!! Fans lose their minds and fire up as Christian enjoys what his Right Hand of Destruction just did. Luchasaurus drags Cassidy up but Cassidy fires off hands! Luchasaurus ROCKS then BOOTS Cassidy up the ramp! Luchasaurus eggs Cassidy on, shoves him further up the ramp, and now they’re at the stage. Luchasaurus runs in but Cassidy dodges! ORANGE- NO, Luchasaurus blocks! Luchasaurus HEADBUTTS Cassidy, and keeps him standing with a choke grip! But JUNGLE BOY is here! He SMACKS Luchasaurus with a chair!

Christian is furious as JB SMACKS Luchasaurus again! Christian gets off commentary to shout at JB, but JB chases him off! JB then runs to CROSSBODY Luchasaurus off the stage and THROUGH a table!!! Fans lose their minds for what Jack Perry just did to get even a modicum of revenge! JB high-fives fans, and Cassidy and Fenix have returned to the ring! But here comes Pac! Pac puts Cassidy in the ring, and he offers Fenix the bell hammer! Fenix takes the hammer and gets in the ring! To DROP the hammer! Pac is upset but fans cheer, only for Cassidy to victory roll! TWO! Fenix has the cover, TWO!

Cassidy gets up, Fenix SUPERKICKS! Somersault, ORANGE PUNCH!!! Cover, Cassidy wins!!

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

But Pac attacks! Pac stomps all his frustrations into Cassidy, and then rains down fists! Fans boo but The Bastard is living up to his name! Pac demands the bell hammer, and he grabs it off the floor. But wait! Is that… KATSUYORI SHIBATA?!?! NJPW’s Wrestler is here, and he’s with Best Friends!! Rocky Romero, Chuck Taylor & Trent Beretta storm to the ring with Shibata, and Pac backs off! Fans are losing their minds all over again as Shibata gets in the ring with Cassidy. Shibata points at the title! Cassidy holds up the contract, and hands it to Shibata! Shibata writes his name on the challenger’s spot, and we have a match for Rampage!!


Tony Schiavone interviews Swerve Strickland backstage.

He is thrilled to be with both Swerve Strickland and platinum recording artist, Rick Ross! The biggest boss, Rick Ross! But as exciting as that is, Schiavone has to ask Swerve, why did he do that to Billy Gunn? Whoa, wait, hold on. Keep it positive here today. Rick Ross is making this clear that he is here for one reason and one reason only: making sure that Swerve is the biggest name in the industry, and the largest recording artist in the world! They’re here celebrating that! Keith Lee walks in and says what’s good! But he’s here for Swerve? Swerve is okay responding to Rick Ross but he won’t text his tag partner back?

Swerve isn’t sure what Keith is talking about. Rick Ross says keep it positive, they’re here celebrating. Alright, here’s keeping it positive: Their team, Swerve In Our Glory, is the #1 contender to the AEW World Tag Team Championships. However, Swerve attacked Billy Gunn. Keith watched things back! FALSE ACCUSATIONS! No, this is facts! And furthermore, who was behind the camera when Swerve assaulted Billy? Who is sick enough to stand there and watch that? Swerve says that is a lot of questions. Rick Ross says that’s not what we’re focused on! Just focus on being the number one duo in the world.

Swerve agrees, and he says they can do this: an 8 Man Tag. SIOG & Gunn Club VS The Acclaimed & FTR! Toast to that! Rick Ross encourages them all to toast, even Schiavone, and Keith reluctantly joins in. Will they all be #1 in the world after one more go with Caster & Bowens?


AEW TBS Championship: Jade Cargill w/ Leila Grey VS Marina Shafir!

Still undefeated at now 40-0 (check Elevation for that milestone), and still AEW TBS Champion, but still without the belt because Nyla Rose won’t let her have it back! Will The Problem add on by taking away Jade’s rightful claim to the title? Or will #ThatBitch have no problem going 41-0?

The introductions are made, but no belt can be raised, so it’s just about the fight!

But wait, speaking of the belt, here comes Nyla Rose! But Vickie Guerrero makes herself known first with “EXCUSE ME!” Jade does her best to ignore that as she ties up with Shafir. Jade puts Shafir in the corner, Vickie shrieks more, and Nyla tells commentary to take a break, she is gonna do the play by play. Jade is taking it to Marina in the corner with uppercuts, “but hopefully she doesn’t get distracted by THE TBS Champion at the top of the ramp.” Nyla swivels the hips while Jade stomps away on Shafir. Vickie notes how good Nyla looks, both the robe and the belt on her waist. Shafir gets out of the ring but Jade goes out to kick her around.

Vickie notes that, according to Jade, Nyla was supposed to be home tonight eating chips. Nyla admits that’s true, and she starts eating chips on the ramp! Jade drags Shafir up but Shafir fires off body shots, chops and knees! Shafir whips but Jade reverses and Shafir hits railing! Jade storms up on Shafir, brings her up and puts her in the ring. Shafir writhes and now Jade dares Nyla to step to her. Nyla says hold on! Jade being so obsessed with numbers, pay attention to the ref. Jade rushes in at 8 of 10, Nyla tells her to watch some Sesame Street when this is done, and Shafir gets Jade in a waistlock!

Jade fights, Shafir rolls her and wants the leg, but Jade kicks her away! Jade then BOOTS Shafir down! Fans fire up with Jade and she storms around. Jade chicken wings and lifts Shafir, JADED!! Cover, Jade wins!

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

Still undefeated at 41-0, and Kiera Hogan is sneaking up on Nyla! Kiera grabs for the belt, but Nyla CLOBBERS her! Jade hurries over, but not to help her Baddie, but to berate her for failing. Will #ThatBitch ever get her belt back? Or will Nyla constantly taunt her with it until she gets her own shot?


The House of Black speaks.

“What has become of us? What have you all done?” Julia Hart says last rites for Malakai Black? And for Buddy, and for Brody. “Have you all abandoned your faith this quickly? You have us burning at the stakes so soon, clinging like children to this new world. Afraid to abandon it.” The bodies are taken out to the water. “Now come the ways of old. Now comes the worship of death. All must end so that all can suffer anew.” “Father of the Black Light, giver of the scythe that takes, giver of the scythe that creates. Forget me not. See me now, mother.” Is this not the death but a new life for the House of Black?


BREAKING NEWS for Rampage!

On top of Cassidy VS Shibata in their All-Atlantic City Dream Match, Britt & Hayter have opponents! Skye Blue & Madison Rayne have stepped up, will the student and coach be enough to shut up the Doctor and her assistant? And the Full Gear World Title Eliminator Tournament will have more names announced! Who will get in on that golden opportunity that leads to New Jersey?

But speaking of Full Gear…

It is now official! For the Interim AEW Women’s World Championship, it will be Toni Storm VS Jamie Hayter! Hayter gets the shot she’s wanted, will she hit the mark? Or will the Lightning From Down Under strike down the Hayter? And speaking of that…


AEW hears from Toni Storm and Jamie Hayter.

Storm says, “A lot of people don’t know this, but me and Jamie Hayter go way back. During the pandemic, me and Jamie actually lived together in England, so we spent a lot of months together. We became best friends. If anything, we became like sisters. When I first got here, when I walked into my first day in AEW…  Jamie Hayter wouldn’t even talk to me. She wouldn’t even look at me. It was quite clear.” Hayter says, “My change of attitude? That’s weird, I thought I was being nice. What do you mean, change of attitude? I feel like I’m the same old Jamie Hayter I always have been. Maybe you just didn’t know who I was before.”

Storm knew Hayter was no longer her friend, she was Britt’s. But now these former friends fight for the title! Will all those feelings and frustrations boil to the surface at Full Gear?


ROH World Television Championship: Samoa Joe VS Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana!

The Embassy wants gold, but they made the mistake of how they went after it. The Machine has angered the Samoan Submission Specialist, is he about to be disassembled? Or will not even the rage of Samoa Joe be enough to stop the Swolverine?

The introductions are made by Bobby Cruise, the title is raised, and we see if there is someone who’s better than Brian Cage!

The bell rings and Cage circles with Joe. Fans rally with “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” Joe makes sure Cage hears that. Cage and Joe tie up, Joe headlocks, but Cage powers up and out. Joe rams shoulders but Cage shrugs that off. Joe runs again, they RAM shoulders, but Cage shakes his head. Cage dares Joe to try again, fans rally behind Joe, but then Cage reels Joe in to ROCK with a forearm! And again! Cage whips, Joe ducks ‘n’ dodges to run Cage over! Fans fire up while Cage slowly gets up. Cage throws forearms, has Joe in a corner, and he fires off forearms! Cage lets off to ask, “Who betta than Brian Cage?!”

But Cage turns around into a CHOP! Joe JABS, JABS, JABS, again and again then CHOPS Cage to a corner. Joe brings Cage out but Cage fires off forearms! Joe CHOPS again, whips corner to corner, then runs in to back elbow and PELE! Cage wobbles against ropes, Joe brings him around to snapmare and CHOP the back! PENALTY KICK to the front! Running ELBOW DROP! Cover, ONE!! Nana gets on the apron but Joe chases him off. Nana still talks trash, but Joe goes back to Cage. Cage DROPKICKS! Fans boo but Nana says that’s how smart they are. Cage CLUBS and rains down fists on Joe, then stomps away at the ropes.

The ref counts, Cage lets off and puts Joe in a corner. Cage RAMS Joe, and RAMS him, then CHOPS! Joe staggers while he’s stinging, but Cage CHOKES Joe on the ropes. The ref counts, Cage lets off, Nana keeps talking trash, and Cage starts firing off KICK after KICK! Cage SOBATS, then he brings Joe around. Cage wrenches, whips, and LARIATS! Cage flexes but fans boo. Cage drags Joe up, but Joe JABS, JABS, JABS! Cage kicks low, whips, then runs in to UPPERCUT and PELE! Then a GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans cheer the strength while AEW goes picture in picture.

Cage looms over Joe, runs and drops a leg, brother. Cage keeps moving, another leg drop! And another leg drop! Cover, TWO! Cage is annoyed and so is Nana, but Cage drags Joe up to give him crossface forearms! Cage clamps onto Joe with a CAMEL CLUTCH! Joe endures as Cage bends him back! Joe fights up, pries at the hold, and BITES Cage’s hand! The ref reprimands but Joe CHOPS! And CHOPS! And whips, but Cage reverses! Joe BOOTS back, but Cage clotheslines all the same! Cage drags Joe to then drop a knee! Cover, ONE!! Cage is annoyed, Nana is shouting, but Cage clamps on a chinlock to squeeze Joe’s head.

Joe endures, fights up, but Cage wrangles him right back down! Joe endures all over again, gets a second wind and he fights to his feet. Joe throws body shots and then CHOPS! Joe runs but Cage follows to ELBOW him down! Joe flops out of the ring and Cage soaks up the heat. Dynamite returns to single picture a Cage builds speed and FLIES! Cage clears the ropes and hits Joe at the ramp! Fans fire up for that uncanny display of agility! Cage puts Joe in the ring, storms up and flexes, but fans boo now. Cage loves showing off, and he drags Joe up. Joe JABS! JABS! JABS! Cage SOBATS again! Cage runs, into a CHOP!

Joe atomic drops Cage, runs and BOOTS him down! SENTON! Cover, TWO! Cage is still in this and Joe is frustrated. Fans rally up as Joe drags Cage up. Joe whips Cage into the corner, then POWERSLAMS on the return! Cover, TWO! Joe is a bit surprised by that and Nana is upset, too. Joe drags Cage up, reels him in, but Cage wrenches out to JUMP KNEE! And SUPERKICK! Joe ends up on ropes, Cage dials it up, 619!! Cage goes up a corner, for a TWISTING ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO!!! Joe survives and Nana is going nuts! The ref defends his count but Cage drags Joe up. Cage wrenches, hooks, but Joe throws down elbows.

Cage knees back, wrenches and pump handles, to flip Joe for the DRIVER! Cover, TWO!!! Joe still survives and Nana cannot believe it! But Cage aims, runs, spins, but Joe ducks to get the SLEEPER! But Cage OLYMPIC SLAMS free!! Cage runs, DISCUS LARIAT!! Cover, TWO!?! Nana is stunned all over again! Cage signs the death warrant, he drags Joe up and fireman’s carries, but Joe slips off to SLEEPER! Cage tries to throw Joe but Joe shifts arms! COQUINA CLUTCH!!! Cage TAPS, Joe wins!!

Winner: Samoa Joe, by submission (still ROH World Television Champion)

Joe wins, but here come the Gates of Agony! Liona & Kaun attack Joe and fans boo! Nana tells Joe this is what he gest, but here comes WARDLOW!! The AEW TNT Champion is here to back up his tag partner and run off the Embassy! Wardlow almost gets a hand on Cage, but Cage and the GOA get away. Wait, creeping up from behind, it’s POWERHOUSE HOBBS! A SPINEBUSTER for Wardlow!! Hobbs picks up the TNT belt and holds it over Wardlow! Is this a glimpse into a future chapter in the Book of Hobbs?

My Thoughts:

A great episode here, with quite a bit set up for the following weeks, and even some for Full Gear. Good promo from Storm and Hayter, and Storm sure ends up in a lot of “We used to be friends” feuds. Hayter & Britt are definitely going to win against Skye & Rayne, so that’s momentum for Hayter. And Britt choosing to not join Renee and Saraya in their interview was a very in-character Heel move. This is of course just propelling things closer and closer to Saraya’s return match being against Britt, and that could be a big moment for Full Gear. I can’t say whether Hayter beats Storm or not, but I would think Saraya’s first match back is going to be a win.

Great opening match from Darby and Allin, even with all the overbooking, but I would not have guessed that they’d pull an nWo Sting with Cole Karter, or that Jeff Jarrett would join Lethal here in AEW. Karter being fake Sting fell flat as could be because who even cares about Karter here in AEW? But Jarrett joining in was at least surprising. Jarrett VS Sting is going to be a thing, and that’ll be fun for old time’s sake. And great stuff out of Moxley VS Moriarty. I did like that Moxley’s promo implied the door’s always open to the guys Bryan mentioned, if they just come to their senses and get vicious as hell. Ethan attacking Moxley indicates he’ll be a frontrunner in the world title eliminator tournament, and maybe this will be Ethan’s push he’s been waiting for.

I’m actually rather surprised we didn’t see MJF at all tonight, but Regal did shout him out in his own promo. Regal of course predicts Moxley winning but who knows what’ll happen at Full Gear. We got a great segment from The Acclaimed and Billy Gunn, and of course Billy’s biological sons took offense when Bowens suggested adoption. We’re definitely getting a Six Man Tag of The Acclaimed & Daddy Ass VS The Firm’s Gunns & Morrissey. Then that’ll lead into FTR VS Gunns at ROH Final Battle in December.

And on the other side, we got a good promo with Rick Ross, Keith Lee & Swerve to address how messed up that was for Swerve to break Billy’s fingers. I wonder if Rick Ross was the cameraman… But anyway, this just adds to Keith not wanting to tag with Swerve over how he’s the Heel in this. Can’t wait to see how that goes in the title match, that’ll be another show stealer at Full Gear like it was at All Out. That will definitely be The Acclaimed’s win as Keith & Swerve are probably going to fall apart as a team during the match.

Great vignette for the House of Black, it definitely dismisses any thoughts that Malakai was leaving. Maybe they make their presence known again at Full Gear for either the tag or trios titles. And a good little video for The Elite where they’re again making a point of AEW trying to be AEW without them. The video being specifically about the trios titles could be foreshadowing that their return will be all about the trios titles so that they can get those belts back and have the fun they were meant to. And Cabana being Jericho’s surprise opponent was great, because one: I’ve been missing Cabana. And two: it’s a sign that CM Punk is out, so Cabana can come back without stress.

But of course Jericho wins, he’s going to keep this Ring of Jericho thing going. But the BCC being united going after the JAS and saving Ian was cool. Maybe we get a Six Man Tag, then who knows, maybe we get Yuta VS Garcia for the Pure title again, maybe Yuta moves up to go after Jericho since Jericho wants after all former ROH title holders, and Yuta counts since he had the Pure Championship before Garcia. I would love if Jericho faced Rush, that’d be really good stuff. Hell, let’s bring in Minoru Suzuki since he was a former ROH World TV Champion. Or Jeff Cobb, he was also one. Any of those names would be fun stuff against Jericho, and their factions would work against JAS.

The TBS Championship match was of course a whole lot of nothing given the story of Nyla holding onto the belt while Jade still has the title. Nyla was pretty funny on the mic, though. And though Kiera tried, she’s one third Nyla’s size so she wasn’t going to snatch that belt back. This obviously culminates at Full Gear, we’re either seeing 42-0 (unless AEW pads Jade’s numbers with Dark and Elevation again) or we’re seeing Jade take her first loss because Nyla and Vickie are playing the distraction game better than Jade and The Baddies. And I really hope Jade and Nyla get to give us a match that steals the show, both are such great characters and impressive athletes, they deserve nothing less.

Awesome stuff out of the All-Atlantic Championship. For one, great Triple Threat, I do like that AEW is having this title be that competitive. Then we got a great return from Jungle Boy, he took it to Luchasaurus and that grudge match is coming around. And of course, Pac is trying to have the others join in on blurring the lines, but Fenix & Penta aren’t having it. If The Elite really are coming back for the trios titles, maybe Death Triangle falling apart is the reason The Elite beats them in the match. But Cassidy winning is great, and I could NOT have guessed Shibata would show up. Cassidy VS Shibata is great stuff, but I’m thinking Pac has to screw that match up. Shibata feels bigger than the All-Atlantic title, and it just makes sense that Cassidy VS Pac happens one more time to put things to bed.

And we got great stuff in the main event for the ROH World TV title. Joe VS Cage was a great match but naturally, Joe wins. The Embassy keeps wanting after the ROH titles, because duh, they’re going to be a big part of ROH’s revival. Hobbs attacking Wardlow was also a natural move, and Hobbs VS Wardlow has to be for Full Gear, too. Who knows how things go, but it would be awesome for Hobbs to get that title, he’s put in great work.

My Score: 8.7/10

But wait, as Big Hurt Hager gets the VNVEBFs to turn their backs, the rogues attack! Fans boo, the bell rings, and all but Danhausen is tossed out of the ring as he tosses Reynolds instead. Uno CLUBS Danhausen, Cassidy is sent into railing, and Uno puts Danhausen in a corner. Uno CHOPS him, soaks up the heat, and then storms up. Danhausen kicks low, throws hands, but Uno kicks back.

The ref reprimands but the Dark Order & X-JAS get the edge. They all have someone in a corner, then they all coordinate to quadruple whip!

And then Best Friends set up in the corners… and Hook needs to be coaxed a little bit, for the GROUP- NO, they all get kicked low! Fans boo as X-JAS & Dark Order reel them in, but the Best Friends QUADRUPLE SUPLEX!

But wait, here comes Wheeler Yuta! The ROH Pure Champion wants to taunt Hook like he has been for weeks now, and then Menard CLOBBERS Hook in the distraction! Yuta joins commentary while Menard bumps Hook off buckles, and reels him in for a big suplex! Tag to Parker and he stomps Hook down. Parker stomps more, then pushes Hook around. Parker tags Uno, they mug Hook. Uno then bumps Hook off the boots of Menard and Reynolds.

Reynolds tags in, he runs side to side to ELBOW Hook! Uno SPLASHES, short arm LARIATS, and Reynolds covers, TWO! Reynolds stands on Hook’s head, fans boo but the Dark Order and X-JAS soak up the heat. But Hook clinches! Reynolds fights with forearms, then he bumps Hook off buckles. Tag to Menard, he stomps Hook then lets off to distract the ref, Uno and Parker CHOKE Hook while Rampage goes picture in picture!

Menard stomps Hook, drags him up, and ROCKS him with a right. Menard pushes Hook around, soaks up the heat, but turns around into a CHOP! Menard trips Hook, drags him back, and tags Parker in. Parker CLUBS Hook down, then stomps him. Parker taunts the Best Friends, flicks his hair gel at them, then goes back to Hook. Parker CLUBS Hook, tags Uno, and they mug Hook some more. Uno scrapes his laces on Hook’s face then tags Parker back in. Parker stomps Hook, but Hook powers Parker back! They end up on ropes, Parker KNEES Hook back! Parker then BLASTS Cassidy off the corner!

Rampage returns to singe picture as Parker goes after Hook, and Hook gets around to NORTHERN LIGHTS! Parker tags Menard but Hook LARIATS Menard down! The fans fire up as Hook and Menard crawl, hot tags to Trent and Uno! Trent rallies on Uno, then on Reynolds! GERMAN SUPLEX! And then another GERMAN SUPLEX!

Reynolds runs in to BOOT Cassidy in a corner! Reynolds puts Cassidy up top!

Reynolds ROCKS Cassidy, climbs up, but Trent runs up to get Reynolds! SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Cassidy adjusts, and Danhausen tags in! But so does Menard!

Winners: Orange Cassidy, Hook, Danhausen & Trent Beretta, by pinfall

Not only is X-JAS furious, but Yuta says this is unbelievable. But will the Decoder have to worry about the much more Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?


Backstage interview with The Outcasts & Anna Jay.

Renee Paquette is with Saraya, Ruby Soho & The Star of the Show to say they are teaming up for the first time in Six Woman Tag action. Saraya says yes they are, and sorry for cutting Renee off, Renee knows Saraya loves her, but… Isn’t Anna just the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen? Ruby sighs and Saraya says “Liza Minnelli” is in a time out so shush. Anyway, Saraya thanks Anna for teaming with them, Lord knows they’ve needed some extra help around here. And also, they do have something in common that is giant, greasy, irritating, and needs to be handled. Oh, speaking of, here it comes.

Parker walks in, apologizes for not being here sooner, and then says hi to Ruby. But uh, yeah, the guys are ready to go, they’ll be out there for her, team effort! Um, no, Anna doesn’t want the boys out there. Especially Parker. What? But Saraya says this is why she loves Anna! She’s great. Yeah, she is. Hey, no, stop looking at Ruby. Saraya drags Ruby along, leaving Parker alone. Will the X-JAS still even be the X-JAS anymore with all this drama?


Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

Schiavone says that 28 years ago, in this town, at the Mall of America, two men were in the main event for the very first wrestling match ever on TNT. It was Sting VS Ric Flair. And Schiavone wants to also say that the final match on TNT back then was Sting VS Ric Flair. So it gives Schiavone a sense of pride to welcome one of Minnesota’s favorite sons, as well as STIIIING~! The Icon makes his way out to the ring and fans howl for him. Schiavone then introduces the Nature Boy, the Minnesota native, Ric Flair! Fans “WOO~!” as Flair makes his way out now, and hugs Sting in the ring.

Schiavone has them bring it in. Wednesday night, they announced the location of Sting’s final match at AEW Revolution, March 3rd, 2024. It will be Greensboro, North Carolina, where these two set the standard for a great televised wrestling event. Sting stands at 24-0, the longest undefeated streak standing, and we’re just two weeks away from tickets going on sale. Sting asks to take the mic, and he howls for the fans! The fans howl back and Sting says Minneapolis, lots of great memories here! Not only did he and Ric do the first and last WCW shows on TNT here, but they did the very big, gigantic- Oh, can’t really say that on TV, sorry. Copyright and stuff.

But the massive match at Mall of America, everyone knows about it. Sting’s had great matches here against and with Lex Luger, Bam Bam Bigelow, and lots of other great memories. So good to be back. Thank you for those memories. Thank you, Tony Khan, Tony Schiavone and the Nature Boy! WOO~! Ric takes the mic now, and he says, “Wow. From 1972 ’til today. And believe it or not, I’m still alive. And that’s saying a lot, heh. Because I’ve covered a lot of ground and had a lot of fun. But there are three or four people that are always gonna be special in my life, and you’ll love these names.

“Dusty Rhodes, Ricky The Dragon, and a guy that I think I’ve wrestled at least 15 hundred times over our career, the great–and the word ‘Icon’ does not even enough to begin to say what a man he is. I’m so serious, to be back in my hometown in this moment, and this ride. This is an incredible ride. Think about the history of our business. I’ve been there with him since ’88, and I’m gonna be there with him in the end. And man, that doesn’t happen in real-life, guys. And y’know what? We’ve stayed as respectful and honest with each other as the day we met, and that’s really unusual. You’re the man, brother.”

Fans cheer, and Ric says, “We’re gonna dance all night and dance a little longer. We’re gonna stay up all night and stay a little longer. I cannot tell you where we’ll be at like the old days, but you know we’ll be going AEW strong! WOO~!” Fans echo “WOO~!” with Ric and Schiavone says Ric will be there for Sting at AEW Revolution, tickets on sale soon! The Icon and Nature Boy are riding off into the night, and we have the when and where. Now all we need is, who faces Sting in his final match?


Backstage interview with Hikaru Shida, Kris Statlander & Skye Blue.

Renee is now with the Shining Samurai, the Galaxy’s Greatest and Chicago Skye as she says a lot has changed in the AEW Women’s Division after Full Gear. Shida lost the AEW Women’s World Championship to Toni Storm, and Statlander lost the AEW TBS Championship to Julia Hart, the same match Skye Blue was in. Does tonight feel like a way to get momentum back? Kris says it has been a hard pill to swallow. “You work so hard for something, and you come back from multiple injuries, you come back and change yourself so many times, and you obtain something so precious, and it’s just taken away in a matter of seconds.”

And worse yet, Kris wasn’t the one who got pinned. Oh, okay, blame Skye when Kris had plenty of chances to win the Triple Threat, and didn’t. Shida tells them to stop. She also lost a title, she also feels angry, but not towards them. Not towards her partners. They can take their anger out on their opponents tonight! Kris agrees with that, and so does Skye. Will this trio of stars be able to bring down The Outcasts and Star of the Show?


The Don Callis Family VS JAH-C

So what if they lost the Like A Dragon Street Fight? “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs did damage to Paul “The Giant” Wight like no man has ever done before, and there’s still a lot left in the tank for Kyle Fletcher & Konosuke Takeshita. Will they only be made stronger from that loss?

The teams sort out, Hobbs starts and Jah throws hands! Hobbs doesn’t even flinch! Jah runs, but Hobbs CLOBBERS him! In runs ??? but Hobbs picks him up to SPINEBUSTER! D runs in but Hobbs SPINEBUSTERS him, too! Fletcher & Konosuke step in, they all get a man up, and in synchronized formation, we get the WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM, GRIMSTONE and BASTARD DRIVER!! Cover, The Don Callis Family wins!

Winners: The Don Callis Family, by pinfall

Fans boo but Callis celebrates with his “family.” Then Callis gets a mic to talk. “Chris Jericho and Kenny Omega! The Golden Jets! You put two of the greatest of all time into a tag team and what do you got? You got a team that could be the most dominant of all time. And I know that wins and losses matter here in All Elite Wrestling. But in the Don Callis Family, the only thing that matters is winning! And whether it’s singles, tag, or trios, the Don Callis Family will continue dominating until there’s nowhere for the Golden Jets to hide in AEW!” The ultimatum has been issued, will it only be a matter of time before AEW belongs to the DCF?


Prince Nana & Brian Cage talk with The Workhorsemen.

Nana says it is an unbelievable time for the Mogul Embassy. Cage says it’s always a great time. Nana says the Gates of Agony are in NJPW World Tag League, killing it and bringing home that money. But tonight, Nana needs to hire some help, and that brings in JD Drake & Anthony Henry. Nana has been watching them, he likes their style. That is why tonight, he needs their services. And this could be a huge opportunity for you both to step up to the plate and to prove a point. To impress Swerve Strickland, too. So tonight, Nana’s paid them, get the job done, and we’ll see if they can join the team. But he believes in them!

Nana & Cage head out, will Scrap metal & The Saint of Augusta help The Machine bring down the luchador trio in tonight’s main event?


Six Woman Tag: Anna Jay & The Outcasts VS Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander!

Both sides have said what’s on their mind, but it’s the emotions in their hearts that could make or break these team-ups. Will Saraya be able to keep things together between Anna and Ruby? Or will it be Shida who struggles to keep Skye and Kris on the same page?

The teams sort out and Kris starts against Anna. The fans rally as the two circle, then tie up. Kris waistlocks, SLAMS Anna, then drags her up to tag Shida. The former champs double whip, sweep and ELBOW Anna down. Then they shake hands to DOUBLE ELBOW DROP! Shida covers, TWO! Tag to Skye and she wrenches Anna to a JAWBREAKER! Anna blocks the superkick but not the BASEMENT ROUNDHOUSE! Skye pushes Anna around, but Kris tags herself in. Skye lets that go, to then tag herself back in! But Kris tags back in again! They argue, but then Shida tags herself in to get them both to stop.

But then Anna hot tags Saraya! Saraya gets around Shida, Shida gets around Saraya, but Saraya mule kicks Shida! Saraya runs, but Shida ENZIGURIS first! Shida fires up, the fans are with her, and Shida torture racks! Saraya endures, but Ruby says put her down! So Shida DROPS Saraya! Ruby storms in but Shdia kicks her low, and snap suplexes her onto Saraya! Fans fire up as Shida covers Saraya, TWO! Shida tags Skye in and Skye keeps Saraya from her corner. Skye whips, runs up and SHINING WIZARD on the ropes! But Anna distracts the ref so Saraya can keep Skye stuck, and Ruby ROUNDHOUSES Skye down!

Fans boo but Saraya howls to the moon. Saraya stomps Skye, insults her, and whips her to the corner as Rampage goes picture in picture.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, lets off to distract the ref, and Ruby digs her boot in! Anna pulls Skye’s hair to help out, then Saraya storms up to bump Skye off buckles. Tag to Ruby, she stomps away on Skye, but lets off as the ref counts. Saraya tells fans to shut up while Ruby drags Skye around. Skye throws body shots, then JAWBREAKERS! Ruby staggers back, Saraya tags in, and the Outcasts mug Skye! Saraya has Skye in the ropes to throw knee after knee! The ref counts, Saraya lets off, and she pushes Skye back in. Saraya keeps Skye from her corner, taunting Shida and Kris, then she stomps Skye.

Saraya bumps Skye off buckles, tags Anna and Anna CHOKES Skye! The ref counts, Anna lets off, and then Anna CHOKES Skye on ropes! The ref counts again, Anna lets off and distracts the ref so Saraya can SLAP Skye. Anna bumps Skye off buckles, Ruby tags in, and Anna ROCKS Skye. Ruby CHOPS Skye, stalks her to a corner, and stands her up, but Skye avoids the chop to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Skye and Ruby sputter and drop to their knees while Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and hot tag to Kris! She BLASTS Ruby, drags Saraya up and FISHERMAN BUSTERS! Cover, but Anna kicks it apart! Anna drags Saraya back and tags herself in. Anna stands Kris up, wrenches and HOOK KICKS! Then Saraya KNEES Kris down! Cover, TWO! Anna drags Kris up, QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! But Kris powers up to back suplex free! Ruby runs in, STO! Skye SUPERKICKS Ruby! Saraya YAKUZA KICKS Skye! Shida ROCKS Saraya, whips her but Saraya reverses, only for Shida to JUMP KNEE! Anna BOOTS Shida! Kris runs up, but into a COMPLETE SHOT! Anna tags Ruby and they get Kris up.

Anna HOOK KICKS, then Ruby SUPERKICKS but Kris pulls Anna into it! Ruby panics, Kris tags Skye and Electric Chair Lifts Ruby! SLAM and CODE BLUE!! Cover, Skye’s team wins!

Winners: Hikaru Shida, Skye Blue & Kris Statlander, by pinfall

The dysfunction wasn’t enough to bring down Skye and Kris, they made it work and now celebrate together! As for Anna, she is furious with Ruby, and Saraya pulls Ruby along like an angry mother with her daughter. Are the Outcasts going to be on the outs sooner rather than later?


BREAKING NEWS for Dynamite!

The implosion of Nana’s team all over a misunderstanding gives Penta’s team their first victory together! Will Penta, Komander y Vikingo take this momentum to next beat Action Andretti & Top Flight?

My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage here with a lot of tag team action. There must be something in Cassidy’s contract about opening shows, though, because that 8 Man Tag certainly felt main event worthy. But then it made sense in story that it had to go first so that the X-JAS could be in action before Anna, and Anna would tell Parker to stay in the back during her match because of how Ruby would be involved. Great win for Cassidy’s team, and great win for the Faces in the Women’s Trios match. Rather surprised Skye is getting her shot at Storm so soon. Yes, she interrupted Storm’s acceptance speech moment, and won here, but why not give us a promo segment between them first, then the match on Winter is Coming. But at the same time, debut in Montreal, they want it to be important.

Of course Don Callis Family squashes jobbers, but I like that we got to see Hobbs, Konosuke and Fletcher all in red ring gear. And seeing Don Callis’ Last Supper parody, it makes me think he wants a total of 11 faction members. I say 11 because “Judas” is already accounted for in Jericho. So far, he has five, Callis really is gonna have to recruit tag teams and/or trios if he wants an easier time of filling out the group. Really good main event from Penta’s team going against Cage & Workhorsemen. Of course the Faces win, but also it was clear the Workhorsemen were going to take the loss for the Heels. Kinda wished Cage would beat down the Workhorsemen after the loss, not because of the “misunderstanding” trope, but that’d probably take away from the Faces celebrating.

And given Rampage is prerecorded, turns out that was for the best this week. I’d only just heard today about how… controversial Ric Flair got in his part of the promo segment. Flair also tweeted about it, both apologizing and not apologizing for what he said. This is gonna be a long three months if everyone has to worry about Flair spouting off the stuff he got away with in the 1980s when he was much, MUCH younger. That aside, the entire segment was redundant anyway, we heard them talk on Dynamite, this is the same crowd that heard it all, it’s just a waste of time.

My Score: 8.5/10

The Maniac is 2-0 with a strong six points, but it may have cost him a leg! Will he have to watch out next round with that target on his back?


AEW shares footage from after Saturday Night Collision.

Eddie Kingston asks them what they want him to say. He knew this was gonna be tough. Tony Khan didn’t put any scrubs in this tournament. Eddie just maybe got too cocky, thinking that since he put two belts in the pot, he was a given winner. No one deserves to win, everything is earned. Eddie has Bryan next but he’s behind the 8 ball. Eddie says he will not do this. He will not go backwards. Humble in victory and humble in defeat. Eddie has to go heal up, Epsom salt bath, all that good stuff. The Mad King vows he will be ready for the American Dragon.

Bryan Danielson responds.

Bryan says he was actually impressed by the confidence Eddie had to put up both his titles for the tournament. But now, one loss and Eddie feels he’s behind the 8 ball? Against Bryan? Bryan fractured his orbital bone, needed surgery in two places, and yet he is coming into this tournament on fire! He is NOT behind the 8 ball, he is NOT going to be humble, he is here to win this and be the first AEW Triple Crown! Will Bryan’s Blue League start be Eddie’s Blue League end?


Tony Schiavone is backstage.

He brings up that Sting’s final match is coming. AEW Revolution, Sunday, March 3rd, 2024. And when it comes to where they’ll have Sting’s final match, they thought of the many great venues across the world, but what better place for Sting’s final match than Greensboro, North Carolina and the Greensboro Coliseum? So many great Sting matches were held there, but one in particular that comes to mind is 1988, Sting VS Ric Flair for the World Heavyweight Championship. So Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina, get ready! Joining Schiavone now are those very legends, Sting and Ric Flair!

First off, 24-0, the longest win streak in AEW right now, what a fitting place for Sting to have his final match and maybe end on 25 than in Greensboro. Sting says yeah, wow, all those years ago, it was March 8th, 1988, his very first world title match against perhaps the greatest world champion of all time in The Nature Boy. Sting would’ve never guessed that night, 35 years later, we’d be here now. The memories, 45 minutes but a draw, commercial free, the first time in TV history that any sporting event even did that. But that’s not the real point of it. The big deal was being in there with Ric Flair. That was a make or break night, and so thank you, Ric, for putting Sting on the map.

Sting says yeah, that is a fitting place to end his career all these years later, Greensboro. Schiavone says so many great memories, and for him and Flair, forty years ago, does he remember? Oh, Flair knows. The words cannot be spoken to emphasize what is about to happen! Greensboro, where Sting, make no mistake, Ric didn’t make Sting a thing, Sting made himself! 45 MINUTES! Commercial free! With Flair! Unthinkable! Sting walked back there to 25 wrestlers going, “Jesus! You’re the man! You did it, Stinger!” He went out there and did it like a man! That’s what this business is all about.

Flair is 74 years old, standing next to the Icon, with his friend, Schiavone, and going back to Greensboro for what will be the greatest moment of his life, and God knows Flair’s had some good ones. He is honored to be there at Sting’s side! They shake hands, and Flair says the ACC Tournament and all that, nah, this is one for the ages! Highway 85 will be lined up from Richmond, all the way to Charlotte, like it always was! Sting, The Nature Boy, and AEW are coming to Greensboro! Let’s give it to ’em! “WOO~!” It’s the 80s all over again! Tickets on sale December 15th! IT’S SHOWTIME!

A true war right here, and now Rush is 1-1! Will this ungovernable one find a way to take over the league? As for Briscoe, he is down 0-2 with no points, is he already on the bubble?


RJ City interviews “Timeless” Toni Storm.

Madame Storm seems rather bothered by something. RJ gets her attention but she tells him to sit. And don’t be so loud. RJ does sit, and Mariah May takes the title for Storm. RJ wants to bring up the championship acceptance speech last week. Yes, and she was rudely interrupted! Yeah, that’s true. How is she feeling? Storm says they partied well into the night, spent some time at the compound, JFK or one of the Kennedys was there. But now she is very fatigued, dehydrated, and has a touch of the gout. Oh, wow. Well, he wants to inform her that she is scheduled to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship. But given her state, is she worried at all?

Worried? Was Fatty Arbuckle worried? Was Jean Harlow worried? Was Frances bloody Farmer worried? No, they all turned out fine, and so will she. Before she goes, take off her shoe, she’s feeling swollen. RJ does take off her shoes for her, but will Storm have to focus before someone takes the title off her?


MJF is here!

Fans cheer as the AEW World Champion walks out here with the help of his cane, mic in the other hand. He has them cut his music, he gets into the ring, and the fans cheer him on. MJF gets right to it as he says “December 30th, Nassau Coliseum, Worlds End, it will be Samoa Joe VS yours truly for the grandest prize of ’em all, The Triple B, the AEW World Championship.” Fans cheer that, and MJF wants to be honest, though. When it comes to Joe as a person, eeeeeeh MJF doesn’t like him. But when it comes to Joe professional, MJF respects him.

MJF respects what Joe has done for the industry, and most importantly, when Joe came into AEW, he didn’t come here to line his pockets, he came here because he believes in those three letters. Fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and MJF says back in the early 2000s, MJF remembers getting a poster in his mailbox and it was for TNA Wrestling. And he remembers thinking, what even is this all about? He tuned in and couldn’t have been happier. He saw insane feats of athleticism, he saw a new cast of pro-wrestlers he’d never heard of before, but most of all, he saw one man among the rest, and that was the Samoan Submission Machine.

While Samoa Joe may’ve looked unconventional, he didn’t seem to care, and neither did any of the fans. Because every time Joe walked through the curtain, we knew he was the baddest man walking on God’s Green Earth. Now unfortunately, later on in his career, Joe’s talents were not recognized and he was not afforded the opportunity to be a world champion in the WWE. Fans boo, but MJF says what Joe did for this sport was bigger than that. “Joe proved you don’t have to be a massive male model bodybuilder to be a top guy in this sport. Samoa Joe broke the mold. Samoa Joe proved alternatives matter.

“And because of the road that Joe paved, it has allowed for a man like me to stand before you today. Without a guy like Joe, there may be no AEW. So Joe, very quickly, what I’d like to say, as much as this all pains me to admit, thank you.” Fans cheer that and join in, “Thank You, Joe! Thank You, Joe!” Yes, thank you, Joe! However… MJF has actually, though grateful to have gone down the road Joe paved, MJF isn’t too shabby himself, now is he? Fans cheer that. MJF managed to pave his own road, and built on a new alternative. He is AEW day one, and he has helped build this place brick by brick! Fans cheer “M J F! M J F!”

MJF says he did that by defeating some of the biggest names in this industry! Names like Cody Rhodes, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega. But of all the names MJF has had to face in this ring, the one name he looks back on, and not only was he lucky to win, he was lucky to survive, that is Joe. Samoa Joe is a wrestling legend. But December 30th is not about Joe’s legacy. It’s about MJF’s! December 30th is about answering the question, “Can Max Friedman outlast the Final Boss of this sport one more time?” So now, MJF is gonna make a promise. He promises to everyone watching at home and everyone here in this arena.

MJF promises that on December 30th, it doesn’t matter if his left knee keeps sliding in and out, if his right hip keeps popping in and out of socket, if his right shoulder is hanging on by a threat, or if Joe beats him within an inch of his life. Joe could be King Kong and Godzilla incarnate. Because MJF promises that on December 30th, he shows the world that it is not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog! And if you want to take what’s his… at Worlds End, you’ll have to put MJF down! MJF even breaks his cane!! Fans fire up with MJF, but then the lights go down.

Now there are lights blinking all over the place. MJF looks around, but THE DEVIL’S MINIONS ATTACK! Fans boo as one of them has a baseball bat!! But here comes Joe!! Joe said he’d have MJF’s back so here he is! He YANKS the big guy out, gets that bat, and he runs the rest off! Cameras have trouble here, but when things come back, a message types out on screen. “In the shadows, our game begins. Next week, MJF & Samoa Joe… will you face the unknown in a tag match? Are you a hero, Max?” The Devil has made his challenge to the champ! The fans chant “DO IT! DO IT!” and “He’s Our Scumbag!” Joe tries to get MJF to ignore all this, it’s what this Devil wants!

But MJF says “I’m so sick of your Scooby-Doo BS! LEMME EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU! I am not dealing with your crap when I got that guy breathing down my neck at Worlds End. No no. I am going to take out all of your men, one by one. I am going to unmask you, you coward! And next week, you wanna tag match?! YOU’RE ON!!” Joe isn’t for it, but the challenge has been accepted. Will Joe just have to save MJF from himself?


Wardlow VS AR Fox!

Speaking of someone who wants to take everything away from MJF, the War Dog is on the warpath, just waiting for the right moment. After what we just saw, is MJF going to be served up on a silver platter?

But wait! Fox BOOTS Wardlow down off the apron! And then FLIES out! But Wardlow stays up! So Fox FLIES again! Direct hit but Wardlow is still up! Wardlow HEADBUTTS Fox, then whips him at the apron. Fox 619s on the apron to hit back! And then he goes up the corner to MOONSAULT, but Wardlow catches him! SLAM on the apron, and then Wardlow box jumps up to the apron. Wardlow storms in, fans rally up, and Wardlow drags Fox up for an OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! Now with both men in the ring, the bell finally sounds and this is actually a match. Wardlow storms up on Fox in the corner, to then TOSS him across the way!

Fox flounders out of the ring and Wardlow is having fun now. Wardlow goes out to stalk Fox, CLUB him on the back, and the ring count climbs. Wardlow hauls Fox up to TOSS him back in! Fans rally, Wardlow storms back in, and Wardlow drags Fox up. Fox shoves Wardlow but Wardlow CLUBS him! Wardlow trophy lifts, but Fox slips free! Wardlow runs in, but only gets buckles as Fox slips out to the apron! Fox swings to dropkick, then he goes up to 450 SPLASH! Cover, ONE!! Wardlow snarls and Fox is stunned! Fox runs in to BOOT! Wardlow doesn’t budge so Fox BOOTS him again! And again! Fox runs, but Wardlow pops him up for a SPINEBUSTER!

Wardlow winds up, to LARIAT Fox down! Wardlow then hauls Fox up, POWERBOMB! The symphony begins as fans want more! Wardlow drags Fox up, reels him back in, another POWERBOMB! And then Wardlow goes up the corner, to SWANTON BOMB!! Fans fire up and Wardlow still isn’t done! He reels Fox back in, to LAST RIDE POWERBOMB!!! The ref checks, Fox is OUT! Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

The remixed Powerbomb Symphony was too much for Fox, and Wardlow storms off. When and where will Wardlow sink his teeth into MJF?

Backstage interview with Action & Top Flight.

Renee is with them and congratulates them on the big win. So good to see Dante back, how is that leg? But then Penta El Zero Miedo and Alex Abrahantes step in. Penta offers a fist bump, and Dante accepts. They’re all good given Penta was responsible for the broken leg in that Reach for the Sky Ladder match. But then Penta counts, one, two, three. Bring ’em in. Komander and El Hijo Del Vikingo join Penta, that makes one, two, three. And Cero Miedo! Dante nods, when and where will we see this top tier trios match go down?


AEW TBS Championship House Rules Match: Julia Hart VS Emi Sakura!

The Princess of the Black Throne successfully defended her gold on Collision against Lady Frost, but now she takes on the Queen of Joshi! And for this match, Dealer’s Choice says submissions can NOT win the match! Then if Julia can’t be Hartless, will she just have to be ruthless?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if the House Always Wins!

The bell rings and fans rally up behind Julia. Julia soaks it up, but Emi laughs at it. Emi and Julia smirk as they stare down, then they approach. Emi dodges Julia and laughs some more, but then Julia grabs her by the face! Julia bumps Emi off buckles, fires off forearms and stomps, then whips corner to corner.

Fans fire up and the ref checks Julia as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Emi stands on Julia’s face, the ref reprimands, but Emi steps away. She has to be careful, part of House Rules is that disqualifications are strongly enforced.

Julia stomps Emi into the drop zone, then goes up the corner. MOONSAULT!! Cover, Julia wins!

Winner: Julia Hart, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

Another defense in the books, Julia is still golden! Will she keep on winning with such unpredictable rules?


Backstage interview with Mariah May.

RJ City is with Miss May and says we saw her at Full Gear and last week, but we also know she’s here, hungry for more. Mariah says yes she is. She knows she’s the new girl and all, but she did just come from Stardom, and she had quite the run. She is dying to show us what she can do. So thanks for connecting her with Toni Storm. RJ says it’s nothing, he and Toni go way back, used to play squash together. No, really, RJ is quite the curator. And Mariah knows Toni likes him, so this means the world to her. No, no, Toni makes things happen. He’s just happy to help. Mariah seems a bit disappointed, but RJ says without further ado, go get ’em!

Mariah knocks on Tony Khan’s door, steps inside, and talks with the boss. Will this Tony be just as accommodating as Toni Storm?


Christian Cage is here!

The TNT Champion, the Patriarch, makes his way to the ring, security right behind him. Captain Charisma then gets a mic while the fans boo, and he says what he’d like to do right now is go ahead and invite the Rated R Superstar to this ring right now. Fans fire up for that, and Christian says he knows Edge is back there. Fans shout “ADAAAAM~!” and Christian says he just wants to talk about what Edge said on Collision. So if Edge doesn’t mind making his presence felt, Christian would appreciate it. But still no response? Did Christian make sure to do this when Edge isn’t here?

Christian waits, gets upset, and asks Adam “ADAAAM~!” that he’d like to speak with him in this ring. Please, someone, hit the mic, get Adam’s attention, something. Or should Christian go back there to speak with him? “You think you know him.” And here comes Edge!! Fans fire up as Edge storms into the ring, and of course the security becomes a wall in front of Christian. Edge paces and Christian says listen, management wanted this, not him. Fans boo that garbage, but Christian says they don’t need security. He asks these men to vacate the ring. They shrug and bail out, even though Edge looks ready to pounce.

Christian brings up that last week, Edge challenged him to a match for the TNT Championship on December 6th, Dynamite in Montreal. Christian is here to tell Edge that they won’t make it to Montreal. They get face to face and fans fire up. Christian says they won’t make it to Montreal because “I’m sorry.” What? Edge is also confused, and Christian says he knows what we’re all thinking. Christian is only sorry because he’s all alone, right? Fans confirm and they chant “BULL~ SHID!” at him! Christian asks them to understand. Edge took out “The Prodigy” Nick Wayne, he took out Killswitch/Luchasaurus, but that’s not why Christian’s sorry.

He won’t lie, he was pissed about what Edge did to Lucha- er, Killswitch, with not one but two Con-Chair-Tos. Christian was so mad, he jumped out of his house, got in his car and just drove around. He needed to think, needed fresh air. And somewhere during that trip, it turned into one of reflection. It turned into a roadtrip of soul searching, digging down deep, trying to understand why he became the person that he is, this guy who says and does such unsavory things. And then he remembered those times he and Edge would borrow Christian’s mom’s Ford Taurus. They nicknamed it “Toby the Taurus” because they took it everywhere when they were trying to make it.

They didn’t care where they went, they were broke, not a dime to their names, but they didn’t care. They were having the time of their lives! They knew they were gonna make it. They didn’t know how, but they knew they would. And dammit, did they ever make it, huh? They went on to become multiple-time tag team champions, and Christian will say it, the greatest tag team that ever lived! Fans do cheer that. Christian and Edge then became multiple time world champions, two of the greatest careers in this sport. But take the wrestling away, and it runs even deeper. Everyone knows Edge grew up with a single mom. Everyone knows that Edge didn’t have a father figure.

Fans boo, already sensing where this is going! Christian wants Edge to listen! Yes, he is the Patriarch of AEW, but in no way is he suggesting he’s Edge’s father. Christian is Edge’s brother. And in turn, Christian’s father became like Edge’s father. Edge went on family trips, sat at the dinner table, slept over! When Edge needed discipline, Christian’s dad treated him the same as his own kids. He picked Edge up, brushed him off, hugged him and cheered him on. To this very day, he is still Edge’s biggest fan. So listen, Christian will just say it. They weren’t just random guys thrown together. “I love you, man.” Fans boo that one!

Christian says they’re family. And listen, when Edge’s mom passed a few years ago, that was the hardest time of Edge’s life. Christian knows that. But some time before, she said, “What I wouldn’t give to see you guys in that ring, teaming one last time.” Christian started thinking, that they should do this for her! Let’s go on the journey together again, like Edge wanted! Edge & Christian, for Judy “Judemeister” Copeland! Let’s do it for her! Fans cheer for Judy, but Edge is conflicted. Christian drops the mic, holds the belt, and then rushes Edge! Edge LOW BLOWS Christian first!! Fans cheer as Christian leans on Edge in pain.

Christian slumps down and Edge lets him fall. Fans want that one more time, but Edge gets the mic. “Nice try, dumbass.” Edge tells him to sit up when he’s talking. Edge grabs the belt, tells Christian to shine it up real nice. Hell, sleep with it if he wants. Because next week, the title’s coming home with Edge! Oh, and one more thing, Edge almost forgot. G F Y!! Fans are thunderous as Edge takes his leave. Will Edge crush Christian’s spirit as payback for everything he’s said and done?


AEW Continental Classic, Gold League: Jay White VS Swerve Strickland!

The Switchblade and the Realest are both 1-0 with three points, and now they are going to battle in what could be the decisive battle in this block! With no Juice Robinson, no Ass Boys, no Prince Nana or Brian Cage, who will prove to be the slipperiest snake in all of AEW?

The bell rings and fans fire up for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White still throws guns up, but he and Swerve then tie up.

Swerve pushes White around, goes up the apron, and then he FLYING STOMPS White down! Fans fire up, Swerve puts White in, and then aims from the apron. But White gets a leg in the ropes! Swerve claws at White, pushes him away, but White BOOTS Swerve, then DRAPING DDTS! Fans rally for Swerve but White drags Swerve up to CHOP! Fans “WOO~!” and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Swerve gets in the ring, White pursues and covers, TWO! White clamps onto Swerve’s bad arm, then traps the other, and he stretches Swerve out as Dynamite returns to single picture. Swerve fights up, but White throws him down by hair! White again mocks the chant, “Whose House?” Bryan commends Swerve on toughness. He had a brutal Texas Deathmatch with Hangman Page, and the only thing taped up is that arm.

Speaking of, White clamps onto the arms again, but Swerve endures. Swerve fights up, throws body shots, but White throws him down by his hair! Fans boo, Swerve gets up to SLAP White! Swerve CHOPS, White waistlocks, but Swerve swings elbows. White gets under to SAIDO! White then storms up to drag Swerve up, CORNER HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Swerve is still in this but White scuffs him. White mockingly says he needs his points. White knees Swerve low, and again, but Swerve blocks the chop! Swerve wrenches, gets around, HAMMERLOCK BACK SUPLEX! White writhes and fans fire up!

Swerve snarls, storms up on White, and he ROCKS him! Body shot! Forearm! Body shot! Repeat! Swerve snapmares, rolls, but White catches the Complete Shot, but then Swerve slips out of the Urenage! Swerve goes to a corner, White runs in but Swerve goes up and over to O’Conner and Eddy Gordo RANA! White tumbles, staggers, into the SOMERSAULT COMPLETE SHOT! And then a gator roll into a deadlift suplex! Fans fire up as Swerve covers, TWO!! White survives and Swerve grows frustrated. Fans still rally up behind Swerve, and he grabs White’s wrist. White resists but Swerve still drags him up.

White reaches out, kicks Swerve’s legs, then gets free. White swings, Swerve dodges and comes back, COMPLETE SHOT from White! White then waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! White runs up, but Swerve DISCUS LARIATS! Fans are thunderous while both men are down and Bryan says, “How incredible are these two men?!” A standing count starts, both men stir, and White flounders to ropes. “This is Awesome!” as White comes back, he and Swerve go forehead to forehead, and they trade junkyard dog headbutts.

White then gets the bad arm, clinches, and URENAGES! Cover, TWO!! Swerve is still in this, this isn’t anything compared to Texas Death!

Swerve fights up, fights the sleeper, and hits an ELBOW BREAKER! But White still rolls Swerve up with his other arm! TWO! White storms up, Swerve trips and jackknife bridges, TWO!! BLADE- NO, Swerve slips free, but White fights the half nelson! And CHOPS!

Swerve CHOPS back! White CHOPS! We get the 15 minute mark, so time’s ticking away! Swerve CHOPS, White CHOPS, repeat! White kicks and CHOPS, then reels Swerve in. Swerve uses a leg to get free but White has him again, SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX!! Then the clinch, BLADE- ARM-DRAG!! Cradle cover, SWERVE WINS!!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall (gains 3 points; White earns 0)

White is shocked that he got beat! The #Jay1 aside, these points go to The Realest! Will the Gold League soon be whose house?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, with awesome Continental Classic matches. But also really good non-tournament matches, such as that Trios Match. Great return to action for Dante Martin, great win for him and his trio, and those three could really build themselves up into trios title contenders with matches like this. And really good TBS Championship match Julia and Emi, though they need to get better at bringing up how House Rules work. No Ropebreaks, the ring count is to 20, and there’s Dealer’s Choice. They just kinda threw out there that this was gonna be a No Submission Falls, which was honestly a brilliant move by Emi. But in the end, of course Julia wins, it’s still too early for her to lose this belt.

Wardlow squashing- heck, he demolished AR Fox, is fine for Wardlow but a shame for Fox. Wardlow is still staying strong as he waits for the right moment to go after MJF again, but maybe, just maybe, he’s been going after MJF all along as that big guy among the “gimp squad” that tried to get MJF tonight. Great promo from MJF to not just praise Joe but also bury Punk without having to actually reference Punk going back to WWE. Joe made the save as expected, and now they’re getting dragged into a tag match against any two of those goons, and who knows who they are really, but can’t wait to see how this all goes.

Awesome stuff from Christian and Edge tonight, a brilliant move for Christian to so blatantly play to Edge’s emotions just to save his own ass. But of course it was also brilliant for Edge to not fall for it at all and get the better of Christian. But uh, AEW needs to be better at live censoring their shows, that GFY got right past them. That aside, that TNT Championship match is going to be awesome stuff, could go either way, but I still want to see Luchasaurus betray Christian and finally become his own man-dinosaur. Not Jack Perry’s tag partner, not Christian’s henchman, but his own man doing his own stuff.

And as I said at the start, awesome Continental Classic matches. Bryan Danielson also being on commentary for these was a good move, that could easily be a thing he does after he retires, except I think part of retiring is staying home with the family. Anyway, Moxley VS Lethal was a great opening match, and I figured Moxley would win that. Maybe Lethal realizes he really has let Team Triple J weaken him with all their antics. Rush VS Briscoe then raised the bar, though with a somewhat scary moment where I thought Rush took a shot to the head but it was really a concern for his leg. Rush winning was a fair choice, and that puts pressure on a possible 0-2 VS 0-2, Lethal VS Briscoe in the next round. I say “possible” because Tony Khan doesn’t reveal the entire schedule at once.

And then just an awesome, borderline PPV level match of Swerve VS White. The fans were strongly behind Swerve, I was behind Swerve, so it’s great to see Swerve get to 2-0. Swerve’s becoming my top choice for Gold League and maybe even the entire thing. Swerve having the ROH World, NJPW Strong Openweight and the AEW Continental Championships, he could really do a lot with traveling between the three brands. Mogul Embassy is already in ROH given they’re ROH World Six Man Champions, and the Gates are in NJPW right now for World Tag League, so Swerve joining them pretty much everywhere, all four of them having belts, that’s great stuff to me.

My Score: 9/10
