PLAY BY PLAY

Toxic Attraction heads to the ring!

Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne are fully recovered from what Alba Fyre did to them, and the Toxic Goddess, Mandy Rose, is STILL NXT Women’s Champion after what Isla Dawn did to Alba Fyre! They get the mics and Mandy starts with, “In the immortal words of Queen, another one bites the dust. But there is only one queen in the NXT ring. And after last week, without my girls, all by myself, I was the last Woman Standing.” Fans boo because Mandy’s glossing over the truth. But Mandy says at 400 days and counting, she has defended her title, and now NXT has to create this first-ever revolutionary match just to figure out who her next opponent’s gonna be!

The Iron Survivor Challenge makes Mandy a bit jealous. She’d love to add another title to her collection. But don’t worry, she will be watching NXT Deadline very, very closely. Mandy cannot wait to see who is willing to go to war just to share the same ring. We all know that after Deadline, the last woman standing won’t stand a chance in hell of taking the title off Mandy! And Jacy says with “Fyre Bat” out of their hair, and clearly having her own new drama to deal with, Mandy can sit upon the throne and await her next victim. Meanwhile, Jacy & Gigi will focus on becoming the first-ever THREE-TIME NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions!

Gigi says with every passing day, the lust to get the titles back becomes intolerable! Kayden & Katana, Gigi hopes you’re listening. Because unlike Zoey & Nikkita, a team that was a train wreck waiting to happen, this is a real team! And everyone can agree that #GoldenAttraction is where the money’s at! But wait! Here come the champions! Kayden tells Gigi to just shut up already! She is so sick of these three thinking they can say what they want and get what they want. Mandy says when you’re as good as the three of them, you can do whatever you want!

Katana says, “Oh please. You are so phony! Standing up there saying ‘I did this all by myself,’ when the only reason that you’re still champion is because of Isla Dawn.” Fans cheer Katana for telling the truth! Kayden says Mandy’s words aren’t the only things phony. Jacy asks if Kayden & Katana have a reason for interrupting. Yes, it’s that Toxic Attraction is THE train wreck waiting to happen. Gigi & Jacy, just look in the mirror! “You two spend all your time protecting Mandy because you know that if Mandy loses that NXT Women’s Championship, you two lose all meaning, all equity, and have no use for Mandy!”

Gigi says, “Do you know how much equity those titles have lost with the two of you holding them?” Kayden says NONE, cuz these titles finally belong to a respectable team! Jacy tells the “Munchkins,” the last time Jacy checked, Toxic Attraction made the two of them relevant! And seeing them with those titles makes Jacy sick! But don’t worry, once Jacy & Gigi get the belts back, Kayden & Katana will return to being irrelevant, just like before. Kayden rushes in and tackles Gigi! Jacy goes after Kayden but Katana gets in to CODE BREAKER! Mandy goes after Katana, Kayden goes after Mandy! But now they’re outnumbered, 3v2!

Fans boo as Katana gets set up for the TOXIC ANNIHILATION! Mandy SLAMS Kayden down right beside Katana, and Toxic Attraction stands tall. Will Gigi & Jacy prove they’re greater than KC Squared? Who will be the Women’s Iron Survivor to then go after the Toxic Goddess?

 

NXT shares footage from earlier today.

Wes Lee was just walking into the arena when Tony D’Angelo and Channing Lorenzo literally pull up. “There he is,” The Don says. “Mr. North American Champion.” Stacks says, “Yeah, for now.” Tony tells Wes that he hasn’t forgotten what he did to Tony’s leg. But he still wishes Wes luck tonight. Wes starts to defend his innocence, but then he says, “Forget it. When I’m finished with Melo, you know where to find me.” Oh, yeah? Yeah. Tony drives off to go park his Tahoe, but will he be pulling up to Wes again at the end of tonight?

 

Cora Jade walks and talks to gorilla.

“You think I’m afraid bringing up Wendy Choo’s past? If you never go too far, you’ll never go far in life. But you don’t know anything about that, because you, too, sat alone at the lunch table. Hit my music!” The Generation of Jade is becoming one part Mean Girls, one part punk rock. But will this mean girl punk get rocked by the Queen of Comfy?

 

Duke Hudson is reading the Chase U playbook.

But he hurries to put it away when Grayson Waller walks in the room. Waller is loving Duke’s dedication to the bit! But he is wondering, when does it all end? Duke says he doesn’t understand what Waller means. Waller says the flag waving, the “ChAsE U~” and hand signs, like, Waller’s known Duke for years! This isn’t Duke! But that’s where Waller is wrong. This IS Duke. Maybe not on the outside, but on the inside, Duke is a committed and dedicated student of Chase U. Now, anyone who talks bad on Chase U is Duke’s enemy. Pfft, right. Waller knows the real Duke and his real colors will show eventually.

Duke leans in and says his true colors are black ‘n’ red, mate. Waller laughs, thinking Duke is still playing a part. Waller heads off mocking “CHASE U~!” but will Duke teach him the hard way that Duke is Chase U for life?

Apollo Crews speaks.

“Deadline: a time or date when things should be completed. On Saturday, December 10th, I have the opportunity to complete something I came back to NXT to accomplish. Six months to almost the day when I looked Bron Breakker in the face and I said I envisioned you and me, Bron, making history together. And now, here it is: Bron Breakker, Apollo Crews, for the NXT Championship. These three weeks will be the longest three weeks of my life, because I’ve never wanted the bell to ring so bad in my life.

“I’ve been in many title matches, won the United States Championship, walked out of WrestleMania the Intercontinental Champion, but this match against Bron Breakker is the one I wake up in the middle of the night thinking about. Six months ago, I said I’m back to rewrite history, to change history, and to make history. The weight of being champion has taken its toll on Bron, I can see it on his face. I can see it in his eyes. But when you look into my eyes, the vision, the ending is clear.” Will Apollo make his vision a reality come Deadline? Or will Bron end up breaking another iconic superstar?

 

Backstage interview with Kiana James.

McKenzie Mitchell says we are moments away from Kiana’s match with Ivy Nile, and Kiana says that Ms. Nile may be tough, but there isn’t a woman Kiana sits across the boardroom from or stands across the ring from that intimidates her. Kiana doesn’t count wins, just losses, because there are so few. Then does that include not getting the deed to Fallon Henley’s bar? Kiana says that deal fell through because of stupidity, and they paid for it with interest last week. Now, if you’ll excuse her, she has a match to win. But before McKenzie cuts away, Javier Bernal walks in.

Javier says last week, McKenzie deprived the NXT Universe of seeing “The Greatest NXT Superstar” unlock his full potential. Not this time! He has something bigger than three names. Behold! The Big Body Javi Files. What is this? Santa’s naughty and nice list? How many names are on this!? Javi says 1347. Oh. Well number one, and wow, really? Axiom? She told Javi last week that Axiom is hurt! Still? That guy’s soft. Uh, his leg was completely bent backwards! Then keep going. Number 14… Elon Musk?! Why would Javi wanna fight him? Hey, he’s not paying $8 for a blue checkmark! How many followers does Javi have? T-Two… Thousand! MILLION!

Two thousand million? That’s not really a number. What? What? WHAT?! Just keep reading!! Okay, number 68: Drake. Drake Maverick? Oh, haha, another person not available. NO, Drake the rapper. What? What’s his beef with that Drake? Uh, did you hear his last album? Then number 250… This guy’s retired, too. Well, is he? Legends say they’re retired, but they always come back for “One! More! Match!” And what about having that “one more match” with Big Body Javi? Never say never! Well, Javi, you’re not fighting anyone on this list. Uh, it’s not a list, it’s a file. And at this rate, he’ll be fighting McKenzie! Javi storms off, is at least ONE of his 1347 choices be a real option?

 

Duke Hudson meets up with other Chase U students.

One student says Mr. Kenwa’s AWA class is so tough! And Thea Hail says Mr. Shabu’s pop quiz would’ve been so much harder without the head’s up. They thank Duke for that. He says it’s no big deal. No one likes pop quizzes. But uh, he does accept gifts. Ha, good one. No, he means it. But then Pretty Deadly walk in and mockingly laugh. The honorary Duke Hudson of Chase U fame, these two have a proposition: There is a poker game tonight, and they could use a ringer to help them clean up. Does Duke fancy a go? Sorry, boys, Duke would rather stay here with his classmates.

Wait, what? Is Duke serious? They joke about the poker game and Duke doesn’t even react! Well serious or not, gambling is against school policy. Duke, when are you going to take off that disgusting school uniform and go back to being the Duke they know he really is. Not that that Duke was great, but at least he tried to look good doing it. Nowadays, Duke’s just a stooge. Duke DECKS Elton Prince, then fights with Kit Wilson! Thea wants in but the others keep her back! Duke fights Pretty Deadly 2v1, but they RAM him into the storage lockers! Referees rush in to break this up! Kit & Elton pushed Duke too far, will Duke find a way to fight back?

 

Kiana James VS Ivy Nile w/ Tatum Paxley!

As smart and business savvy as The Calculator is, she couldn’t account for family memories and principles being stronger than her money. Will Kiana move on to more important business like climbing the ranks towards the title? Or will the Diamond Pitbull tear her to shreds and move on to Deadline herself?

NXT returns as Ivy makes her entrance. The bell rings and the two tie up. Ivy powers Kiana back to ropes but lets off as the ref counts. Kiana shoves Ivy, but Ivy shoves Kiana! Kiana headlocks, Ivy pries at the hold but Kiana holds on tight. Fans rally up and Ivy pries the hold open to arm-drag! Ivy headlocks back, shifts sides and wrenches to a wristlock. Kiana pries the hold to wrench and trip Ivy. Ivy slips away and the two reset. Kiana and Ivy circle, fans rally for Ivy but Kiana shoots around to full nelson. Ivy breaks it, sunset flips, TWO! Ivy facelocks to keep Kiana down and she moves around to wrench the hold.

Kiana fights up, wrenches out and pulls hair to hit a BACKBREAKER, and BLINDSIDE LARIAT! The ref reprimands and fans boo but Kiana taunts Ivy. Kiana stomps Ivy, reels her in, gut wrenches and carries Ivy in the Canadian Rack. CANADIAN BACKBREAKER! Ivy writhes but Kiana pushes her to a cover, TWO! Fans rally up for Ivy but Kiana facelocks. Ivy fights up, throws body shots, but Kiana whips Ivy to a corner. Ivy bounces off buckles and Kiana scoops to a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Kiana snarls but she clamps claws into Ivy’s shoulders! Kiana JAMS her knee in, and again, then pushes Ivy down to cover, TWO!

Kiana pushes Ivy around, grabs a leg and has a CALF CRUSHER! Ivy endures, reaches out, claws around, and she grabs Kiana for a chinlock! Kiana lets the leg go to fight up and back suplex! Cover, TWO! Kiana grows frustrated but she drags Ivy up to scoop again. Ivy slips through to CLUB away on Kiana! Ivy then hooks Kiana up to bend the arms back! Kiana endures the “Diamond Octopus,” and Ivy YANKS the arm! Kiana staggers and fumes, but she storms up into a roll-up! TWO, but Ivy hurries up to KICK and KICK and ROUNDHOUSE! Kiana wobbles, Ivy RANAS her down! Ivy keeps moving and she shoulder tackles Kiana!

Ivy gut wrenches and SUPLEXES! Fans fire up with Ivy and she runs in at Kiana to DROPKICK her out of the ring! Kiana gets to her feet, she says she’s done, but she turns around to see Fallon Henley there! Fallon tells Kiana off about attacking her last week and Kiana hurries back into the ring. Ivy swings Kiana around, into the DIAMOND DRAGON SLEEPER! Kiana taps, Ivy wins!

Winner: Ivy Nile, by submission

But Kiana’s suffering isn’t over, Fallon gets in the fire off forearms! Kiana runs away but Fallon pursues and fires off more in front of commentary! They go all the way to the back, will Fallon teach Kiana not to mess with family?

Meanwhile, the Creed Brothers appear to cheer on Ivy in her win, and Julius says, “Ivy Nile continues to prove that she is the most dangerous woman in NXT! She’s underappreciated. But you still don’t see her running around jumping people like Indus Sher! These guys think they’re gonna make their names on the backs of the Creed Brothers. I don’t think so! We’ve been bodying dudes that’re bigger and stronger than us our entire lives! Ask Nick Gwiazdowski, two-time world medalist. He can get frequent flyer miles whenever he wanted. Ask Sam Stolk!” Ivy has Julius stop there.

But Brutus says the point is this: Intimidation doesn’t affect the Creeds. They’ve worked too damn hard to be worried about anything with a heartbeat! Indus Sher walks around wanting respect after attaching the Creeds? Well that’s the last thing they’re gonna get! Julius tells Veer & Sanga that they might have the admiration of all of India, but when it comes to set foot in the ring, it’s just them and the Creeds. NXT Deadline, Indus Sher VS Julius & Brutus Creed! “If you guys want respect, try and come get it!” Ivy tries to get the boys to focus on what really matters, but are the Creeds hitting back before Indus Sher strikes again?

 

Isla Dawn speaks.

“The light of your fire, Alba, was met by the darkness of the Unholy Enchantress. But I did give fair warning of my approach. But you did not heed the signs. No one saw the ethereal thing materializing before their very eyes. But Alba, for any answers you seek, you must listen. Listen to the same spirit voices that have guided me straight to you. Alba, we’re gonna have so much fun together!” Isla laughs and blows out her candles, but will she end up burned by the Fyre she’s playing with?

 

Andre Chase speaks with one of his students.

“We’ve been over this countless times. The Elimination Chamber debuted as Survivor Series 2002-” Duke flops into the room! He’s sputtering as he asks Mr. Chase for help. But he’s in a meeting with Mario! Duke ran here because he remembered Chase talking about leaving it in the ring. Yes, he did say that. Well, Duke says he couldn’t do it, he punched him! Duke, you can’t get into fights with fellow students. No, not a classmate! It was Pretty Deadly. Who? The… Hold on, Duke’s gotta catch his breath. The two with the long hair and half shifts. They were talking bad on Chase U! They were?! Yeah, so Duke had to double down and then everyone rushed in.

Wait, were there any repercussions? Did he get fined? No no no. He doubled down and got them a tag title match. Wait, really?! When!? Tonight. TONIGHT?! Duke, that’s great! Mario also says that’s great! Chase asks Mario WTF he’s still doing in his office. Get out so they can prepare! Duke, way to go! Chase says they gotta game plan right now! But will Duke be alright after gassing himself to go find Mr. Chase?

 

SCRYPTS VS Guru Raaj!

The mysterious messages, both audio and visual, finally have a face to the name! Scrypts flips his way out to the ring and walks the tightrope as he writes his name in the air. But will Raaj be able to flip the script and end the story before it begins?

The bell rings and Scrypts handsprings right up to Raaj! Scrypts writes Raaj off already, but Raaj rushes in. Scrypts gets around Raaj, slips under and KANGAROO KICKS, then kips up! Raaj wobbles, Scrypts DROP-SAULTS! Scrypts brings Raaj up, whips him to ropes but Raaj reverses, only for Scrypts to slide under his double stomps! Scrypts kicks low, clinches and whips Raaj to a corner. Fans start chanting “REGGIE! REGGIE!” as Scrypts runs in, but into an elbow! Scrypts shrugs that off, Raaj lariats but Scrypts handsprings under it! Scrypts mule kicks, front kicks, then TWISTING CROSSBODIES!

Scrypts rains down fists on Raaj, then drops an elbow! Scrypts goes to the corner, writes in the air then climbs up the corner, for the PUNCTUATION! Cover off the somersault seated senton, Scrypts wins!

Winner: SCRYPTS, by pinfall

The first chapter in the story is complete, and it was a success for the mysterious scribe. He leaves Raaj with his card, but will Scrypts leave his mark on NXT?

 

The Schism is in the ring.

Joe Gacy, Rip Fowler, Jagger Reed & Ava Raine sit at a table, bathed in the black light that turns their yellow smiling masks red. Rip is “Gluttony,” Gacy is “Invictus,” Raine is “Oath,” and Reed is “Greed” while fans boo. The masks come off and the lights return to normal. Gacy says, “Autumn is the time of year when trees shed their leaves, and The Schism’s tree is no different. We shed the transgressions of those against us and we reflect on what togetherness has brought to our lives. This week, we recognize a day for giving thanks. And it is our duty to reinforce the meaning of a day meant for togetherness and something to be thankful for.”

Ava speaks next. “Every year, stories are told of families being torn apart by Thanksgiving. Despite the American tradition of quality time shared with loved ones, dysfunction remains the norm. Blood relatives cannot guarantee a united family. But The Schism can be counted on.” Some fans cheer that message, and Rip speaks next. “A day to be grateful that you have enough to fed yourselves during the darkest of times has exploded into a ritual of overabundance, and embarrassment of riches.” Ava exits the ring while Rip continues to rant that “Gluttony that cannot be contained has left this holiday a far cry from it’s intent.”

Ava seems to be looking in the crowd for something… She points to someone in the front row and he hops over the railing. Reed says, “Thanksgiving is now anticipated more for Black Friday deals. The deals creep in earlier and earlier each year, so that you can forego Thanksgiving altogether in hopes of grabbing that new hot item, when you should be focused on your belief system.” Ava welcomes this fan into the ring and into the open chair at the middle of the table. Gacy says Ava has found someone who practices the traditions of Thanksgiving and brought them here. As you can see, their table is bare so that it is open for new opportunities to forge new traditions.

Gacy turns to the fan and says tonight we christen a new holiday. This man will be the bridge to the old traditions they leave behind, and to the new ones they will forge, which will “forever lasting traditions.” Fans chant, “Sacrifice! Sacrifice!” Are they anticipating something? Gacy says this man’s inclusion will be the centerpiece of their table. Now please, stand with them as they pledge “The Day of Schism Invictus.” They all stand, and Gacy leads them in the pledge. “We pledge on this day of Schism Invictus to refuse anyone who is not The Schism, and build strength through togetherness. Four roots, one tree.”

Ava welcomes the guest into a hug, and Gacy says it is too late to join. They are no longer inclusive. They are now DIVISIVE! What? Gacy thanks this man for his sacrifice. Fans cheer as Gacy URENAGES the guest through the table! Happy Schism Invictus! But will this tradition lead the Schism to titles and supremacy over the masses they rejected?

 

Backstage interview with Trick Williams.

McKenzie notes this was to be an interview with both Trick and Melo, but it doesn’t seem Melo is joining them. Trick says that is because The A Champion is in The A Locker Room preparing for his A PLUS performance tonight. But don’t worry, Trick Willy will answer all your questions. He is sure McKenzie is good enough to work on the fly, so fire away. Then what are his thoughts on- Trick says, “Wes Lee’s Cinderella Man story ends tonight! Melo’s gonna beat that bitter bad man into an oblivion. And then I can’t wait to hear them say, ‘THREE-TIME NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPION!'”

But then Wes appears! Trick puts up his dukes but Wes says settle down. Don’t stop on his account, continue to talk how money Melo is. Well okay, Melo looks like money, walks like money, and talks like money because Melo IS money. Interesting. So then, Melo has this in the bag tonight? Is water wet? So then, Trick doesn’t need to be out there. He can watch Melo take the L from the locker room. Whoa, Melo ain’t taking the L. And Trick Melo Gang is a package date, they go out there together. Hmm… Well, Melo needs Trick to win? Oh, Trick sees what Wes is trying to do. But now he’s caught! Is Trick saying it without saying it?

McKenzie, Trick thought you were on his side! No, she’s an unbiased reporter. Trick says Melo doesn’t need Trick to win! He doesn’t? Then it’ll be just Wes and Melo out there tonight? That’s putting words in Trick’s mouth! Wes says see ya later. Trick just got got! Will Melo be A-OK without his sidekick? Or will Wes prove HE’s the A Champion now?

 

Bron Breakker speaks.

“After a big match, this is where you can find me. Just out here.” He puts his boat in the water and goes cruising. “Out here, I don’t have to be Bron Breakker, the guy that smashes people. I’m just a regular guy. I’m just another fisherman out here. What I love most about being out here is just how quiet it is.” Bron casts his line and waits. “Being the NXT Champion comes with a lot of weight, a lot of responsibility. Don’t get me wrong, I love it. Just takes a toll after awhile. In the beginning, I felt like Superman. It’s just all excitement and no real expectations. But as time goes on, there’s more weight, there’s more pressure. That’s why I come out here.

“As it gets colder and winter comes in, my experience is, these fish slow down, they’re not as active in the wintertime, so that forces me to broaden my bait choice and throw some different things that have some movement or some action to it to get these fish to react to it. This is my escape. This is where I can come and drop all that weight. Because when I go back ashore, I’ve got competitors coming at me from all directions. All the heavy hitters. Apollo Crews, he’s next. When one challenge ends, another begins. Apollo’s right. Three weeks, NXT Deadline, the weight goes back on. And after I retain my title, you know where you can find me.”

 

Zoey Stark VS ???

Angry, bitter, but not one to mess with, the Sin City Soldier gets back in action as a solo star. Will she show everyone that she’s the only one that matters?

NXT returns and Sol Ruca makes her entrance. The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Zoey waistlocks and SLAMS Sol, then facelocks to dig Sol’s face into the mat. Sol gets up and circles with Zoey again. They tie up again, Zoey headlocks, Sol lifts her but Zoey flying-mares for the takedown. Sol moves around to keep her shoulders up, and she handstands to walk out of the headlock! Sol eggs Zoey on and Zoey runs right into a drop toehold! Sol floats over to a facelock but Zoey fights up. Zoey wrenches out to WRING the arm, but Sol one-hand handsprings through! Only for Zoey to KNEE low!

Zoey bumps Sol off buckles, then hip tosses her, but Sol handsprings through that, too! Fans fire up as Sol eggs Zoey on. Zoey rushes in but Sol hurdles over and DROPKICKS Zoey down! Zoey goes to a corner, Sol storms in but into a SUPERKICK! But Sol SUPERKICKS back! Zoey claims something’s wrong with her jaw, but that’s so she can SUCKER SUPERKICK Sol! Cover, TWO! Zoey drags Sol up, but Sol ROCKS Zoey with a forearm then LARIATS! Zoey bails out but Sol calls her a chicken. Sol baseball slides, into an apron skirt trap! Zoey fires off haymakers! The ref reprimands, fans boo, but Zoey leaves Sol behind, to then WRECK Sol with a dropkick!

Zoey puts Sol back in the ring, slides in and covers, TWO! Zoey fishhooks Sol’s face, the ref reprimands, and Zoey lets off at 4. Zoey CLUBS Sol with crossface forearms, then wraps on a chinlock. Fans rally and Sol endures while Zoey thrashes her. Sol fights up, throws body shots, but Zoey CLUBS Sol down. Zoey snarls, whips Sol to a corner, but Sol dodges to roll Zoey up! TWO! Sol elbows Zoey away, then runs to run her over! Fans fire up with Sol’s flying shoulders and DROPKICK! Sol dodges Zoey to back drop her high and hard! Cover, TWO! Sol hurries to go to the corner and climb up! But Zoey GAMANGIRIS her down!

Zoey drags Sol up, Sol shoulders in then slingshot sunset flips! TWO! Sol brings Zoey up to whip to the corner, then she handsprings in to SPLASH! Sol scoops Zoey to POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO!! Zoey survives and Sol is frustrated! Fans fire up as Sol goes up the corner again. Sol leaps, but Zoey avoids the dropkick to SLIDING KNEE! Cover, Zoey wins!

Winner: Zoey Stark, by pinfall

The Hunter takes down her prey, but now she picks at the bones! But wait, here comes Nikkita Lyons! Zoey goes out to meet her, but Lyons ROCKS her first! Lyons gets in the ring, blocks the superkick and DECKS Zoey! Zoey stagger sup, but she avoids the heel kick! Zoey says they’re not doing this now, they’re doing this on her time. Will the Hunter quickly become the hunted with Lyons on the prowl?

 

Malik Blade & Edris Enofe talk with someone.

Malik tells them that “Big O” Odyssey Jones has room for one more if they wanna join in. And there’ll be plenty of ladies, too. Edris knows they haven’t always seen eye to eye with Von Wagner & Robert Stone, but Edris & Malik are trying to be the bigger men here. And they’re sure Von is upset after losing to Bron, but that was last week. They know for a fact Von will get back on top, just like them! Onward and upward! Von says Malik sure is looking sharp. And they’ve got lots of swag. Von’s not sure about Rob, but he’s got his dancing shoes on! Nice! Von takes off the jacket, and Edris says big Von Wagner, Malik, Edris and Odyssey, it’ll be a fun night!

Yeah, Von could use a night out being mediocre for once. Stone laughs at that one. Onward and upward, was it? These guys don’t know about that! They don’t know about success! They never will see him hang out with “you two losers.” Who’s Von calling losers?! Malik has Edris calm down, but Von DECKS Malik then KNEES Edris! Von TOSSES Edris into the cars! Von DECKS Malik again, CLUBS Edris, then he goes after Malik! Security rushes in but Von shoves them away! Von RIPS Malik’s sweater vest!!! Odyssey storms over and Von backs off now. Odyssey checks on Malik. Will Odyssey #SoundTheAlarm and look for vengeance on vicious Von?

 

Charlie Dempsey speaks.

“All these new workouts… CrossFit? Power yoga? Circuit training? Just give me a good ol’ fashioned deck of cards. Legends like Carl Gotch and Billy Robinson didn’t have all this technology and equipment. All they had was their bodies. I train like they trained for performance. But I’m surrounded by people who train to look cool for Instagram. Guys like Wes Lee, Carmelo Hayes, Grayson Waller, they spend their mornings choosing their outfits while I wake up and do 5003 squats before breakfast. There’s a lot of pretend tough guys in that locker room with their beach muscles. They even gave a security guard a contract, for pity’s sake.

“But I’ll have them all screaming when I stretch them in the ring. Because professional wrestling is a serious business.” Will Dempsey prove to NXT that sports entertainers don’t stand a chance against him?

 

NXT Tag Team Championships: Pretty Deadly VS Andre Chase & Duke Hudson w/ Thea Hail!

After Grayson Waller questioned Duke’s genuineness, Elton Prince & Kit Wilson pushed Duke’s buttons, and he just couldn’t help it! But that fight turned into a title match! Will this be a #TeachableMoment for the dandy highwaymen? Or will the #SidePlateCheck continue to show Pretty Deadly’s logo?

NXT returns and the champions make their entrances. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who pasts the test here tonight!

The teams sort out and fans rally for Chase U. Chase wants to start, but Duke sees Elton rushing up, so Duke CLOBBERS him first! Duke is starting now, and Chase tells him to fight smarter, not harder. But then Elton tags out to Kit. Duke rushes in to CLOBBER Kit! Duke whips Kit to a corner, scoops him on the rebound, and hits a BIG sidewalk slam! Cover, TWO! Duke brings Kit up, tags in Chase, and they double whip Kit to drop toehold and elbow drop!

CHASE U!” but Elton fights up. Elton powers out, Chase runs Elton over! Chase runs, things speed up, Elton DROPKICKS Chase down! Fans boo but Kit says, “Yes Boy~!” Elton puts Chase in the corner, tags Kit, and they double whip to run Chase over. “Yes Boy~!” They both run to LEG DROP SPLASH COMBO! Kit covers, TWO!

Kit wrenches Chase to whip, but Chase kicks him away! Chase then headlocks, but Kit powers out. Chase goes up and under to then trip Kit! Kit throws Chase but Chase cartwheels through! Chase RAMS Kit, snapmares him and runs, but Kit catches the legs! Only for Chase to roll and drag Kit down! Cover, TWO!! Kit escapes but Chase headlocks again. Kit reaches out to Elton but Chase kicks the foot away! Elton storms in, but Chase back drops him while holding onto Kit! Elton staggers up, Chase jumps up, RANA HEADLOCK TAKEOVER COMBO! Fans fire up for Chase, and he says that is a TEACHABLE MOMENT!

The champs rush Chase, he dodges, and Duke runs in! Duke CLOBBERS Elton, Kit comes back, into a double back drop! Chase whips Kit, Kit reverses but Chase reverses back to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! And time to spell it out! “C! H! A! S! E! U!” “What’s that spell?!” “CHASE U~!” Fans are all fired up as NXT goes to break!

NXT returns again and Chase uppercuts Elton! Chase runs, but into an elbow! Elton snarls and he kicks Chase around. Fans boo Elton then rally up again as Elton drags Chase up. Chase JAWBREAKERS free! Kit hurries out to fetch Elton, but then Thea points it out and Duke storms over that way! Kit hurries back to his corner, but this leaves Chase without someone to tag! Elton CLOBBERS Chase from behind! Duke goes back to his corner but Elton stomps a mudhole in the open corner. Elton fires off point-blank clotheslines, the ref counts, but Elton lets off. Elton has Chase on ropes, wraps on a cobra clutch, and he tags in Kit.

Elton ripcords Chase for a double kick. DOUBLE CLUB! And then Pretty Deadly both stomp Chase’s hands! Pretty Deadly mock Duke with Scott Hall fingers, then they stomp Chase down. Tag to Elton, Kit wrenches and traps Chase. Elton goes up to DOUBLE AX HANDLE! Cover, TWO! Chase is hanging tough but Elton tags Kit. They double whip Chase but he holds ropes! Chase BOOTS Elton, ROCKS Kit, reaches for Duke, but Elton rushes over. Chase throws Elton out, but Elton falls on Thea! Duke is furious and he chases Elton off, but he again leaves Chase without a tag! Duke hurries back but Kit RAMS Chase all the way to the Pretty Deadly corner!

Elton tags in, Kit holds Chase in place for the UPPERCUT! Feed to a fireman’s carry, ASSISTED GUT BUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Chase is hanging tough and fans fire up! Elton clamps onto Chase to keep him down and then drags him up. Fans rally and Chase DECKS Elton! Both men are down, Elton realizes he has to stop Chase, but Chase crawls under him! Hot tags to Kit and Duke! Duke rallies on the champions with big haymakers and elbows! Scoop SLAM for Elton, scoop SLAM for Kit onto Elton! Then Duke scoops Chase to SLAM him onto Elton! Fans fire up and Duke raises the roof! Duke JABS Kit, and JABS, and JABS, and JABS!

Duke flips, flops ‘n’ flies! CHASE U ELBOW!! Cover, Elton breaks it! Duke throws body shots on Elton then TOSSES him out! Fans fire up and Duke tags in Chase! Chase is wobbly, though! Duke wants Chase to finish this, and he hauls Kit up. But Elton runs in! Chase DECKS Elton! Duke Gory Especials Kit, slings him out, but Kit drops and the BOOT hits Chase!! Duke can’t believe what just happened, but Elton drags Duke out! Elton RAMS Duke into steel steps! Tag and SPILT MILK!! Cover, Pretty Deadly wins!!

Winners: Pretty Deadly, by pinfall (still NXT Tag Team Champions)

Chase U’s student section cannot believe it! Kit & Elton escape by the seat of their fancy pants, will anyone be able to stop them? Chase sighs but he isn’t upset with Duke. Will they go back to the drawing board and work on a way back to the titles?

 

NXT shares Roxanne Perez’s video.

It was an an NXT Live event last Saturday that Roxie was making some TikTok vids and she with Nikkita Lyons. Roxie asked Lyons about the matches that night, but then Indi Hartwell just storms over to tell Roxie there are NO friends in this business! Indi says Roxie is being all friendly with Lyons but she can’t even be a good friend to Indi and watch her match! Roxie said she did! Indi said how could Roxie have watched Indi’s match when she’s over here recording stuff with Nikkita?! They were talking ABOUT Indi’s match!

Indi didn’t accept that answer, and then via Elektra Lopez’s video of this same incident, the argument got so heated that other superstars came over to try and cool it off. Lopez says, “Seems like I’m not the only one who has a problem with Indi Hartwell.” La Madrina is stirring the pot, but Indi is already pretty heated on her own. Indi and Roxie settle things in a match next week, who gets burned when this reaches a boiling point?

 

Kayden & Katana regroup backstage.

They agree that Toxic Attraction only stood tall in that brawl because it was 3v2. But then Lyons says hey. What does she want? She admits that she said some stuff leading up to their tag title match, but she doesn’t regret it. Well, neither do they. But Lyons also admits KC Squared was right. Lyons & Stark were never a real team. And yes, she knows everyone’s been saying that they weren’t partners for very long, but it’s just that Lyons looked up to Zoey and admired her. Can you blame her? But then we didn’t know the real Zoey until she hit Lyons upside the head with a title belt. Katana appreciates Lyons saying this, and knows that the tag titles can make or break friendships.

Kayden agrees, but says the break-up isn’t on Lyons. The champs know Lyons is a badass. And if Zoey can’t see that, that’s her loss. Katana says what matters is staying true to who you are. And who doesn’t love to shake that booty and have some fun? They call agree there! But if KC Squared is looking for a third against Toxic Attraction, then count her in. Well alright then! Kayden & Katana now have Nikkita backing them up, will KC Squared plus one be greater than Toxic Attraction’s three?

 

BIG NEWS for next week!

With time running out, Shawn Michaels will reveal the Iron Survivor Challenge competitors! Who will be the five men and five women HBK deems worthy of this historic match debut?

 

NXT North American Championship: Wes Lee VS Carmelo Hayes!

The Must-See Kid is finally a singles champion, and he has his first defense against the man who was champion. But will Wes be one and done? Or can he prevent the rise of the three-time (three-time three-time) North American Champion?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see just who is THE A Champion!

The bell rings and the two stare down. Wes and Melo circle, fans rally and duel, and the two tie up. Melo and Wes go around, end up in a deadlock, so Melo ROCKS Wes with a right! Melo talks trash, but Wes says if that’s how he wants it, Wes TACKLES Melo! Wes throws hands, Melo scrambles out of the ring, but Wes slides out to ELBOW Melo into the announce desk! Melo staggers away, Wes rushes in but is sent into barriers! But then Wes drop toeholds Melo into the barriers! And LARIATS him into the gap! Melo staggers up and Wes throws him back into ringside! Melo flounders, Wes runs in and RAMS Melo into the apron!

Melo CLUBS away on Wes, puts him in the ring, and then he slides in. Wes stares Melo down and says, “It won’t be that easy. I’d rather die!” Melo stands Wes up but Wes ROCKS him back! Melo ROCKS Wes, then BOOTS him! Wes staggers to ropes, Melo runs in, but into a RANA! Melo staggers up, Wes shoots around him to get the headlock, but Melo fights up. Fans rally, Melo back suplexes but Wes lands on his feet. Wes waistlocks, Melo swings elbows but misses, and Wes lifts. Melo fights the suplex, trips Wes and turns him over, but Wes dodges the falling elbow! Melo sweeps the legs, rolls Wes to his feet, but Wes gets around to schoolboy! TWO, Melo cradles, TWO!

Wes avoids the sweep, Oklahoma Rolls, TWO! Both men hurry to stand up, Wes ducks but Melo springboard! Wes dodges again, handsprings, but Melo gets under! Both men BOOT and they’re both down! But it’s a double cover at the same time! TWO!! Fans fire up as both men avoid the loss and NXT goes picture in picture.

Fans rally as Wes and Melo stir. Melo sits up, shakes his head and talks more trash. Melo goes to the ropes and then the corner. Wes runs in but Melo moves! Melo comes back but Wes swats him! Wes boots but Melo blocks to put Wes in the ropes! ENZIGURI, and then the FADE AWAY! Wes is folded up from that impact! Melo drags Wes to a cover, TWO! Melo is frustrated but he drags Wes around to drop knees on the shoulder! Melo pulls on the arm, he slaps Wes around, and then focuses on bending the elbow! Wes endures, reaches out, but Melo slaps him down again. Melo pulls on the arm, but Wes powers up with is legs to get a roll-up! TWO!!

Melo escapes, and he CLOBBERS Wes! Melo hurries to cover, TWO!! Wes is still in this but Melo keeps on him. Melo goes after the bad arm and puts it in a cobra clutch! Wes endures, claws at the hold, and NXT returns to single picture. Fans duel as Wes reaches out. Melo shakes his head, but Wes pulls at the hold more. Melo HEADBUTTS the bad arm to keep it down! Wes still endures as Melo leans on the hold, and Wes reaches up. Wes stands up, but Melo KNEES low! Melo whips but Wes ducks ‘n’ dodges to come back, but into a FLAPJACK HOTSHOT! Melo springboards, FLYING LARIAT! Cover, TWO!

Melo argues with the ref but the ref says his count was fair. Melo goes back to Wes and he CLUBS him down! Fans duel hard as ever while Melo HAMMERS away on Wes! Wes crawls to ropes but Melo drags him up. Melo whips Wes to a corner hard and Wes falls back. Melo says that the title is going home where it belongs. Melo drags Wes up, whips him to the other corner hard, and Wes falls back again. Melo laughs as he looms over Wes, and then he dribbles his free throw. Did Melo make the shot? Fans chant, “AIR BALL!” Melo whips Wes but Wes slides to stop! Melo runs in but into a FLAPJACK into the buckles!

Fans fire up as Wes GERMAN SUPLEXES Melo away! Both men are down and fans are thunderous for “NXT! NXT!” Wes crawls his way over, Melo gets up, and Melo throws a haymaker! Wes gives it back, so Melo throws another! They go back and forth, faster and faster, harder and harder! Fans fire up as this is a hockey fight! Wes goes low, SOBATS, then fires off a strike fest!

Winner: Wes Lee, by pinfall (still NXT North American Champion)

Trick couldn’t help Melo get this one, and the phoenix that is Wes Lee is still burning bright with the gold! But wait, what’s this cage that’s opening? And then shutting? Because from behind, it’s DIJAK!! Dijak is back in NXT, he’s the one who’s been talking about “hard justice!” And he choke grips Wes, to lift him right into the torture rack! FEAST YOUR EYES!!! What has Wes done to be deemed guilty by Dijak? Or is Dijak just after the title?


My Thoughts:

This was a great NXT, and it helped build a lot towards NXT Deadline. For one, Toxic Attraction having it out with Kayden & Katana again, and then Lyons volunteering to be their third for next week all feels like a preview of the women’s title matches for Deadline. I don’t know if Lyons will take the title off Mandy, but the last NXT special of the year would be the time to do it. Mandy’s got 400 days, she’ll be at 410 come Deadline, she’s going to be second place all-time for a single reign, she can hang her hat on that and put over the next generation. The tag titles might be harder to call, but I wonder if Toxic Attraction falls apart because Gigi & Jacy admit KC Squared is right about Mandy holding them back.

At the same time, the feud of Lyons and Stark might keep Lyons from getting the belt. Toxic Attraction didn’t save Mandy from Alba Fyre, Isla Dawn did. And so Gigi & Jacy might not help Mandy, but Zoey might if it means keeping Lyons from winning the title per the classic Heel trope. At the same time, what if Zoey is in the Women’s Iron Survivor Challenge? Zoey could win that and be the next challenger, just in time for Lyons to be the new champion. Their feud can build towards New Year’s Evil 2023. And speaking of Isla and Fyre, Isla has a good promo to call out Fyre, they might even have a part to play in the Iron Survivor Challenge.

Another part of that match is probably going to be Indi Hartwell, and either Roxie or Lopez. Indi VS Roxie might be how to settle that story, and then Indi takes on Lopez, Fyre, Isla and Stark in the Iron Survivor. There are a ton of options on the men’s side, but I think we’ll be seeing Von Wagner and Odyssey Jones involved after the parking lot promo where Von beat up on Malik and Edris. And even if not, Odyssey and Von are going to have a great match as two big hosses who can move pretty quick in the ring. We might even see Gacy representing the Schism in that match. The Schism had a good promo, but I really liked how the fans knew what was coming with the “sacrifice.”

Kiana VS Ivy was a good match, and of course Fallon goes after Kiana in return for last week. They’re going to have a match and that will surely settle things with their story. The Creeds calling out Indus Sher was good stuff, and even Ivy continuing to insist they shouldn’t. Creeds VS Indus Sher could even be a #1 contenders match for the tag titles. I’m leaning towards Indus Sher winning, because they aren’t going to come back just to lose their first feud. And speaking of the tag titles, I really liked how things went here with Duke Hudson and Chase U. Waller and Pretty Deadly questioning Duke’s intentions was a nice detail, and Andre Chase does such great character work.

I figured Chase U wasn’t going to get the titles here, but that was a great match, and I think even Chase is wondering what’s up with Duke. Dempsey had a good promo, and I like that he emphasized the phrase “professional wrestling.” Obviously Dempsey will be a Heel right now, but he called out names on both Face and Heel sides, so I’d love if he was a Tweener who touted “pro-wrestling” in the “sports entertainment” company as like a weird parallel to AEW’s “pro-wrestlers VS sports entertainers” in the BCC VS JAS story. And I would love if Dempsey got in on the Iron Survivor Challenge, that’s the kind of match where stamina would come in handy.

Did anyone else have Reggie the acrobatic wine sommelier on their list of who SCRYPTS could be? Because I sure as hell didn’t. And sadly, it was a bit obvious looking at him that it was Reggie. This is like the wish.com version of Axiom. With Axiom, we could tell it was A-Kid because of the voice, but the mask covers him up so well that fans who never saw NXT UK wouldn’t have any idea. Here, pretty much everyone remembers Reggie from his time on RawDown with the 24/7 Championship, and that mask does nothing to disguise him. But hey, he is at least getting a story WWE is going to take seriously.

Speaking of seriously, Javi’s character may be taking this seriously but he is coming off as a goof for having such a long list of people to fight, and surely 90% of them will never happen. I do wonder what “retired not retired” legend they were alluding to at the end there. And then namedropping Drake Maverick, I kinda hope Rockstar Spud comes back (again) to whoop Big Body Javi. Good match from Cora and Wendy, and I should’ve figured Cora would cheat to win. Wendy crying after was a bit of a surprise. Tiffany pushed Wendy to bring out her dark side, I wonder if Cora pushes Wendy over the edge and we get another Lights Out match.

Good promos from Apollo and Bron, and I found it interesting they both brought up “the toll” this current reign has been taking on Bron. It’s kind of weird Apollo is pointing out he’s basically beating down a beat-up Bron Breakker, but perhaps the point is that timing is everything. I don’t know if Apollo wins, but just as Deadline would be a good time to dethrone Mandy, maybe this is the time someone dethrones Bron (again, but for good). And we got an awesome North American title match. Wes getting Trick to stay backstage for most of the match was good stuff, and I figured Wes would retain the title. But Dijak going after Wes, I wonder if Tony D is behind that… Dijak is going to be a great opponent for Wes to overcome and establish himself as a strong champion, and then maybe Tony takes his turn.

My Score: 8.6/10

Join Renee Paquette and RJ City in discussing, analyzing and predicting the night that features Sting’s last match ever!

 

Tony Schiavone and David Crockett are here!

These two reunite in the Greensboro Arena, where so much of Sting’s iconic career took place. David says as we know, tonight is about family. The Young Bucks made this extremely personal when they attacked Sting’s sons, so what was to be a celebration of a great career has become a grudge match. There is purpose and revenge, Sting isn’t leaving until he finishes the job. Great years were spent here, the centerpiece of Jim Crockett Promotions and the NWA. Here on hallowed ground, from 1988 to 2024, Sting finishes his career here, live on PPV! Dial in, because there’ll be nothing else like it!

 

Zero Hour – 12 Man Tag: The Bang Bang Scissor Gang VS Willie Mack, Private Party & Team Triple J w/ Sonjay Dutt & Karen Jarrett!

Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, The Acclaimed made it work with Austin, and we have seen the entire six pack in action and win once before. Will this be another hit for the super group? Or will the mash-up of The Mack, Marq Quen, Isiah Kassidy, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh destroy the dysfunctional half dozen?

“Platinum on the mic, I’ma ’bout to cook this! All these jobbers in the ring, who the hecc booked this? A Black guy, an Indian and Jeff in the mix, I just wanna know: whose fetish is this? You make my job easy when I’m rappin’, you’re like an offensive joke waitin’ to happen! The Bang Scissor- Sh*t!” Caster lost his flow three times in a row! Is #TriplePartyJay winning gonna open the show? Bowens still shouts, “GRRREENSBOROOO~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The teams sort out and Austin starts against Brother Zay. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” and Austin circles with Zay. Jarrett coaches Zay up and he ties up with Austin. Austin headlocks, grinds the hold, Sonjay offers fist bumps to the commentary team. Zay slips around to headlock Austin but Austin powers out. Zay ducks ‘n’ dodges and squealing DROPKICKS!

Zay is annoyed, he swings but misses and Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and two-steps to DECK Zay!

Quen RAMS Colten into a corner, Sonjay talks smack, and Quen whips corner to corner. Colten reverses then back drops Quen away! Quen squeals like Zay!

The fans fire up while Bowens covers, TWO! Bowens says guns up, and then he brings Quen around. Tag to Colten, they mug Quen and Colten clamps onto an arm. Quen fights up, pulls hair, and he puts Colten on the ropes. The ref counts, Quen lets off, but Lethal HOTSHOTS Colten! Quen DROPKICKS Colten down! Fans boo but Quen tags in Jarrett. They mug Colten, and Double J stomps Colten to ropes. Jarrett runs, pulling the ref’s attention, which allows Karen to CHOKE Colten before the STRADDLE ATTACK! Fans boo more as Jarrett starts up the Fargo Strut, and everyone on his team joins in on the outside!

Jarrett stomps Colten around then tags in Lethal. Jarrett whips Colten to kick low, Lethal hits the SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Lethal soaks up the heat, kicks at Austin, then goes back to Colten. Tag to Mack and the fans finally have reason to cheer. Mack whips and LARIATS Colten down! Mack keeps Colten from BBSG, then tags in Quen. Quen drops knees, and fans actually chant, “Let’s Go, Colten!” Colten endures, fights up, but Quen snapmares him down. Tag to Kassidy for the slingshot SENTON!

Winners: The Bang Bang Scissor Gang, by pinfall

#TriplePartyJay tried to use the numbers game, but not even they could stop this super six pack from flexing their guns! The AEW World Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions stand tall together once again, and White gets the mic. “Yo! Yo! YO!” White is copying Max as he says, “Listen! See, Max? It’s not that hard. Oh yeah, guns up for my Greensboro Gold Members~!” Now, White is always telling the gang about how much he loves Greensboro. It’s one of his favorite cities in the world! The fans appreciate that, and White continues to say that Greensboro has some of the greatest wrestling fans!

The fans again cheer, and White says hey, what better place to have an event like Revolution? And there’s a lot of action tonight! Will Ospreay is here! Who walks out the AEW World Champion? Fans chant “JOE! JOE! JOE!” so that answers that. Oh oh oh oh, who is ready for Sting’s last match, huh? The fans sure are! A very big night, kicking off the biggest way possible with the Bang! Bang! Scissor! Gang! The two best trios, the single best six man team, and the GREATEST faction in the GREATEST wrestling company, AEW! The fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and White says BBSG is led by one of the greatest of all time.

White can remind any of us, that on any given day, at any given moment, just who he is. He’ll remind us why he is the Catalyst of Pro-Wrestling! He’ll remind us to Breathe with the Switchblade! The fans sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Switchblade~!” White says in ten days time, AEW Dynamite in Boston, maybe he handles some Big Business of his own! Fans like the sound of that. But until then, EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed. And if you ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! The Switchblade is taking aim at something, two guesses what title he wants to add to the collection.

 

Backstage interview with Best Friends.

Lexi Nair is with Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Rocky Romero & Chuck Taylor, but also Doc Sampson, because we need a medical update on the International Champion before his match with Roderick Strong tonight. Doc says as we know, Cassidy has been getting beat up the last few months, and that Doc keeps telling Cassidy to tape up that back and ribs. Tonight, it happens or he isn’t being cleared. Then with all that said, how does Cassidy feel going into this? Trent speaks up that Cassidy always fights through it. And just like always, the boys have his back. Cassidy wants to talk to them about that, actually

Tonight, before, during and after, Best Friends need to stay in the back. Cassidy is sick and tired of seeing his friends getting hurt because of him, so he has to do this on his own. Chuck says yeah, he’ll keep the others back and respect Cassidy on this. Hands in, and even Doc and Lexi join in. Freshly Squeezed has support in spirit, but will that not help when The Undisputed Kingdom will stack the deck?

 

We hear from PAC!

The Bastard says, “Here we go again. A tale as old as time. The forgotten bastard! Where have you been, boy? None of your pissin’ business where I’ve been! Well, you tell me. Who said life’s so hard? Huh? Every man has his struggle. Do you think I don’t know the burden of shame? Isolated, blinded, broken. I almost popped me clogs. But I didn’t~! You’ll never get rid of me, Tony Khan! I’m like a cockroach, an indestructible little bastard, always lurking in the underbelly. I will be back very soon, whether you like it or not. And I am going to drag this festering scrotum of a company into a new age! Because I’m alive, ladies and gentlemen! And doesn’t it feel good to be alive?”

Stokely says if you’ll excuse him, and he leaves commentary to celebrate with his team. They got on the same page, got the win, and have humbled the TBS Champion, if only for now. But the question is, who will be moving up to challenge the champ down the line?

 

AEW TNT Championship: Christian Cage w/ The Patriarchy VS Daniel Garcia!

Captain Charisma will deny it up and down, but he did lose this title to the Rated R Superstar at Worlds End, then he bullied Killswitch/Luchasaurus in handing over his anytime-anywhere title match contract to get it back. Will that same insurance policy through emotional abuse come through for him tonight? Or will nothing save him from Red Death?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is the true Face of TNT!

Is Mark going to burn the House down with his own two hands?

 

Swerve Strickland speaks.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite, The Realest having recovered from Hangman Page getting the jump on him. “I really don’t know what I should be pissed off at more: The fact that Hangman went out there and just ripped my $2,000 Jeff Hamilton exclusive jacket; or the fact that maybe I was just being a little too nice. I don’t really let my guard down too often, and in this business, you pay for it eventually. And it feels like I just paid for it. Swerve hung the Hangman and it was only right for the Hangman to swerve Swerve. You got me. I’ll never take my eyes off you ever again. This Sunday, you can’t get behind me. You gotta look me dead in my eye. I’m not gonna forget this.

“And as far as Joe, hm… I’m taking that championship. Whether I humiliate you on social media or in a promo, it doesn’t matter. I’m doing whatever it takes to walk out the historical figure of AEW, the first African American AEW World Champion. Whose house? Swerve’s House.” Angry yet focused, is Swerve truly the most dangerous man in that Triple Threat?

 

All-Star Scramble Qualifier Triple Threat: Penta El Zero Miedo VS Dante Martin VS Bryan Keith!

So far, it is Chris Jericho, Lance Archer, Will Hobbs, Wardlow, Hook, Brian Cage, and after last night’s Rampage, CMLL’s Magnus. One spot remains, will the eighth man have #CeroMiedo, represent Top Flight, or be looking for his next bounty?

A huge win for Angelo Dorado, he is the final man in the All-Star Scramble! Will Dante use his speed and agility to snatch that golden ticket to the top?

 

AEW shares more footage from after Dynamite.

AEW Media caught up with Hangman Page backstage, and asked him about the attack on Swerve. Is he really not hurt? Hangman asks back, “Do I look hurt, you dumbass?! I’m fine, I’m in the match, and I’m sorry I took advantage of the trust of the people tonight, but I had to do it! I had to do it! I would rather DIE than have Swerve win the world championship! I would rather DIE than not win it myself! I did what I had to do! He’s hurt! He’s hurt, he’s weakened, he can’t have it, he won’t have it! I won’t let him! I had to do it! I had to do it!” The Cowboy seems to think he had to do what he did, but what will he do in order to finish things at Revolution?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Revolution!

After going back and forth with Julia Hart & Skye Blue, Kris Statlander & Willow Nightingale team together against The House of Black for a big Zero Hour tag match! Will the TBS Champion and her sidekick bring down the dynamic duo? Or will the Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power prove The House does NOT always win? Plus, while The Bang Bang Scissor Gang tests out the combination of The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn tonight, they’re ALL going to team together against a rather eclectic six pack. Willie Mack, Private Party, Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett & Satnam Singh are teaming together, but will they be brought down by the AEW Trios & ROH World Six Man Tag Champions?

 

Mariah May VS Angelica Risk!

“Timeless” Toni Storm’s superfan and self-proclaimed protege is back in action, looking to keep her win streak going. Will this be the night she impresses the AEW Women’s World Champion? Or is she simply taking a risk?

The bell rings and Risk circles with Mariah. They tie up but Mariah kicks low! Mariah CLUBS Risk, puts her in a corner, and then puts some major stank on the DOUBLE CHOP! The fans cheer, Mariah stalks Risk to ropes and puts her through to pull her against the ropes! The ref reprimands and counts, Mariah lets go at 4. Risk sputters and coughs, but Mariah pulls her against ropes again! Mariah runs side to side to DROPKICK Risk in the back! Mariah winks to the camera and then brings Risk up. Mariah whips Risk to ropes, scoops her, and spins and spins and spins for the SIDEWALK SLAM!

Risk writhes while Mariah soaks up the cheers. Mariah blows a kiss to Nigel McGuiness and he is rather dramatic about it. Mariah smiles and goes back to Risk. Risk throws hands but Mariah CLUBS her down. Mariah puts Risk in a corner, then digs her boot in! The ref counts again, Mariah lets off at 4 and says she just deserves a slap on the wrist. Mariah then drags Risk up, snapmares her and runs, to basement dropkick! Risk flounders and Mariah shrugs. Mariah kicks Risk around, drags her up, but Risk ROCKS her with haymaker after haymaker! Mariah shoves Risk then DECKS her! Mariah runs up to KNEE Risk down!!

Mariah storms around, drags Risk back up and fireman’s carries, to hit MAYDAY! Cover, Mariah wins!

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

Nigel finishes marking out, and here comes Toni Storm! Storm goes right down to the ring and Mariah fangirls over her role model! Storm gets in the ring, but bypasses Mariah to get a mic. “Deonna Purrazzo, I must speak with you right now. Please come to the ring right this instance.” The Virtuosa does make her way out here, and storms right into the ring. Storm stays back and says, “Deonna, please. Hasn’t this gone far enough? Look at us! Look at what we’ve become. Is this really what we trained for? Is this really what we starved for, Deonna? Our friendship, destroyed. A new ta-too, a broken leg, a broken arm. All just to win a match. Is it worth it?” The fans sure think so! Storm isn’t so sure.

So Deonna, Storm says from the bottom of her heart, she loves Deonna. Her ability, her determination, and… that there is only room for one. And as long as Storm shall live and breath, it will never be Deonna! Deonna tells Toni, “I love you, too. I love… that you have your head so far up your own ass, you’re going to lose the one thing that started this entire charade to begin with! And I love, Toni, I love that you have forgotten the most important detail about me. I am the best friend and the worst enemy. I hope you have a bidet. It’s going to be really hard to wipe your ass when I break both of your arms!”

The fans fire up and Storm is unsure how to respond to that. But very well. Goodbye, old friend. Toni brings out lipstick to freshen up her make-up, and she kisses Deonna on the cheek to leave a mark. But Deonna fires forearms! They brawl, Deonna TACKLES Storm, and Mariah runs in to stop it! Mariah TOSSES Deonna away and helps Storm get away. But then Deonna runs up to BOOT Mariah! Deonna reels Mariah in and slashes her throat. This is for Storm! STORM ZERO on Mariah!! Deonna shows Storm that anything Storm can do, Deonna can do better. Will that also apply to being the AEW Women’s World Champion?

 

Six Man Tag: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn VS The Dark Order!

While it was a bit rocky, Jay White & Colten Gunn made it work with Daddy Ass, so now the other half of the Bang Bang Scissor Gang gives it a go! And that means Platinum Max has a rap! “Bang Bang Scissor Gang, doing our thang!” But then Jay White gets too buddy buddy and it throws Caster off! Fans boo but White apologizes. Caster’s lost his window now, can he get back on the beat in the match? Bowens still says, “Huntsville, Alabamaaa~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~!

The trios sort out and Austin starts against Alex Reynolds. The two circle, feel things out, and tie up. They go around, Reynolds headlocks, but Austin wrenches out to headlock back. Reynolds powers up and out, drops down then swings, but Austin ducks ‘n’ dodges and trips Reynolds up! The fans cheer, Austin JABS, JABS, JABS and then two steps for the HAYMAKER! Tag to Caster, he and Austin double whip Reynolds to ropes. They DOUBLE HIP TOSS and we get a shot of “Juiceboard.” Caster brings Reynolds up but Reynolds RAMS him into Dark Order territory! Uno tags in, the Dark Order mugs Caster, but Caster fires off haymakers on them all!

Caster ROCKS Uno again and again, then dodges to DROPKICK! Reynolds runs up, but into a back drop! Silver runs in but into an atomic drop and RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Caster swaggers, but Uno stands up. Caster scoops to SLAM Uno, then tags in Bowens. Bowens tags Austin and Bowens goes up. Time to SCISSOR ME TIMBERS! The remix works just like the classic! Fans fire up as it’s guns and scissors up! But the flow is off again, and Silver BOOTS Bowens! Silver ELBOWS Austin, dodges Caster, and feed to Reynolds, POP-UP UPPERCUT! Uno runs to BOOT Austin then DDT him! Cover, TWO!

Austin stays in there for the BBSG but Uno stays on him with buckle bumps. The Dark Order isolates Austin as Collision goes picture in picture.

Uno DECKS Austin, mocks him as he crawls for the BBSG corner, then STOMPS the hand! Austin writhes, Uno tags Reynolds, and they get Austin up in an open corner. Uno CHOPS, Reynolds clotheslines, and then Reynolds snapmares to IMPLODER SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Austin hurries to ropes and the fans rally up. Reynolds storms up on Austin, taunts Billy & Colten, then tags in Silver. They double whip Austin to ropes to double drop toehold and DOUBLE BASEMENT DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Silver scowls as he stays between Austin and The Acclaimed. Silver sits Austin up to KICK!

Austin sputters, Silver KICKS him again! Then Silver sucker punches Bowens down! The ref reprimands while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Uno is again taunting Austin to tag his team. Uno then drags Austin up, whips him away, but Austin uses that to BLAST Silver & Reynolds! Uno blocks Austin’s kick but the ref refuses to play along! Uno is upset, but Austin gets a leg and he gives it to the ref! Now the ref is okay with it, and Austin hits the NECKBREAKER! The fans fire up while Austin and Uno are both down! Uno and Austin crawl, their teams reach for them, and Hot tags to Bowens and Reynolds! The Five Tool Player rallies on the Dark Order! ROLLING ELBOW for Uno! ROLLING ELBOW for Reynolds! Then Rock Paper Scissors SUPERKICK for Silver!

The fans fire up as Reynolds gets the same, plus the FAMOUSER BULLDOG! Bowens shouts, “EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED! BANG BANG!” But then Uno drags Bowens out and POSTS him! Caster CLOBBERS Uno, fires off on him, but Silver DIVES! Down goes Caster, but Billy tells the Meat Man to watch himself. Silver just flexes and says, “I’m freakin’ jacked, baby!” Silver shoves Billy and the ref has to stop the rest of BBSG from going after Silver! But this lets Uno & Reynolds both get Caster up, and Silver runs in! PENDULUM BOMB!! Reynolds covers, AUSTIN BREAKS IT! What a save!

Uno CLUBS Austin, runs up, but Austin gets around the boot! Dragon sleeper, SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Austin says “SUCK IT!” but Silver tags in and CLOBBERS him! BOOT WASH to GERMAN SUPLEX! Silver & Reynolds have Bowens isolated! Silver clotheslines, GAMANGIRIS, and whips, but Bowens reverses! The ROLLING ELBOW from Reynolds hits Silver! Bowens tags Caster, then clinch for THE ARRIVAL! Caster is up top, MIC DROP!! Cover, BBSG wins!

Winners: The Acclaimed & Austin Gunn, by pinfall

Jay White slides in to give the boys their belts, and he scissor fingers with Caster. The gang makes it work again, and look ready for Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Will the super group be unstoppable despite the dysfunction?

 

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

Speaking of dysfunction, Lexi Nair is with the trio of Galaxy’s Greatest Babes with the Power and their manager, nothing the loss to Skye Blue just on Dynamite. However, they do have the tag team match against Skye & Julia tomorrow night, are they having a different tactic going into it? Stokely wants to “address the elephant in the room” and go with the word of the day, “accountability.” He was watching a lot of The View, he is a Whoopi stan, so hey, he just wants to say sorry. Willow says put apologies aside. No more talking, they need to get on the same page. Tomorrow is not about friendship, it is about Revolution!

Willow warns Julia & Skye, “Stat and I are gonna kick your ass!” The Babe with the Power has flipped the switch from happy to angry, is tomorrow night’s Zero Hour going to be the last time the House of Black gets the better of her and Statlander?

 

Tony Schiavone is in the ring.

He brings in one of the men who gets a chance at an AEW World Championship opportunity in the All-Star Scramble. It is the one and only… WARDLOW! The Undisputed Kingdom’s War Dog makes his way to the ring and he just takes the mic away. “You know the deal.” Schiavone bows out and Wardlow says, “Looks like I finally got somebody’s attention around here, huh?” Fans sound a bit torn but Wardlow says, “Two years ago, I won the Face o the Revolution Ladder match. One year ago, I choked out your King. This year, FINALLY, I get my shot at the world heavyweight championship, after I beat all the other ‘all-stars’ in the match.”

Fans boo but Wardlow says the real question is: Who’s it gonna be? Wardlow VS Hangman? He’ll slap the Cowboy’s mustache into the third row and send him back into depression! Wardlow VS Swerve? The fans like him, right? It’s Swerve’s House, right? Wardlow will kick the door of that house down and whoop Swerve’s ass from the basement to the attic, because nobody else gets to eat before him! So swerve back into your lane and dance your ass to the back of the line! Swerve’s House only exists in Wardlow’s World! Maybe it’ll be Wardlow VS Joe. The fans chant for “JOE! JOE! JOE!” but Wardlow says he is so sick hearing these “dumb hillbillies” chant for Joe!

Wardlow says that he hopes it IS Joe! Because everybody knows that Joe is in Wardlow’s spot! And this time, Wardlow will finish the job. Not only is Wardlow going to take his spot, take his title, but beat Joe so badly that Joe will be forced to put on a headset and sit at the announce desk where he belongs! YEAH, Wardlow is him! He’s been him, will always be him! And tomorrow night, Wardlow reminds everyone that he is STILL the Face of the Revolution! Wardlow is the Uncrowned King of AEW, because this is no longer wrestling! This is WAR! But wait! Here comes Chris Jericho!

Wardlow huffs and puffs as The Ocho makes his way out here, mic in his own hand. Jericho asks a question: What exactly is Wardlow going on about? Swerve, Hangman and Joe? They are all great competitors, but Wardlow’s not fighting those three! He’s in the Scramble, and maybe you don’t know Jericho, but he’s not an all-star, he is one of the greatest to ever do this! And if Wardlow thinks he’ll just pass over him and six other men, six of the greatest performers worldwide, here’s some information for you. Jericho is the Ocho because he is an eight-time world champion, and the very-first AEW World Champion!

The fans cheer and Wardlow mockingly claps. Jericho says that makes the score 8-0 in Jericho’s favor cuz Wardlow ain’t won sh*t. The fans cheer that! So before Wardlow disrespects Jericho and says he’ll go right to the top, Jericho will remind Wardlow that it’s been four YEARS since Jericho lost that title to Jon Moxley in one of the greatest matches in AEW history, and Jericho hasn’t had even a chance to get it back, or even sniff it. So tomorrow at Revolution, this isn’t just another match for Jericho, this is a chance for him to get back to where he thinks he can be, to where he knows he can be, and that is the AEW World Championship!

Jericho knows he’s good enough. The question is: Is Wardlow? Wardlow chuckles but Jericho says Wardlow’s complaining about being overlooked and pushed aside. Thousands of people used to chant Wardlow’s name, he had a rocket that was put on upside-down, blah blah blah. Does Wardlow think that maybe it wasn’t any of those things? Maybe the people stopped chanting because Wardlow just wasn’t good enough. Maybe it’s that aren’t as good as you think, “Mike.” Wardlow scowls at Jericho using his first name. But y’know what, Chris? You’re right. Because Wardlow was this close to the top of the mountain that he could smell it.

But after Double or Nothing, Wardlow shows up for work, just to take a step backwards. And then the next week, another step, and another, and another. So yeah, that pisses Wardlow off to the point that he let it eat him away, to where he was taking work home and he let it ruin his personal life. Wardlow lost his best friend to this, and he lost himself! But after sitting at home for three MONTHS with no phone call, Wardlow slowly started to remember who he was. And he did what he have done so many times in his life: pick himself up off the floor, put himself back together, and then came back here to remind ALL OF YOU just who the hell he is!

BECAUSE HE IS WARDLOW! The biggest and baddest SOB to ever step into the ring! And he doesn’t give a DAMN what your name is, how many titles you’ve won, and just like he said last week, Wardlow is done eating the scraps! The fans fire up as Wardlow says if Jericho doesn’t think Wardlow’s good enough, well, Wardlow’s right here. Feel free to come down and show Wardlow so Wardlow can remind Jericho! Oh, if Wardlow wants Jericho to prove something, fine. Jericho will take that rocket off his back and shove it up his ass! Right, Huntsville? But wait! HOBBS CLOBBERS JERICHO! Wardlow chuckles, but Hobbs says watch this!

Hobbs rains down fists on Jericho, then tells Wardlow that HOBBS is the biggest and baddest! Fans boo but Hobbs says they’ve got one more day before this happens! The fans chant for “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” The Scramble is beefy, will it be one of the behemoths that comes out on top?

 

Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi is now with the Professor of Pro-Wrestling, and says she is arguably the most experienced woman in the AEW locker room today. And currently, she is undefeated. But we’ve also seen a new side of her. Tell us just what’s going on. Deeb says not only is she undefeated in her return, she is undeniable and unstoppable. She’s putting on clinic after clinic every single week. And to be honest, no one’s really even challenged her in the ring yet. And that makes sense, because she is the Professor, the Woman of 1000 Holds. To be honest, she doesn’t think the competition she’s faced so far knows the difference between a wristlock and wristwatch.

So if you’re listening, if you’re watching, and if you consider yourself one of the best, step into Deeb’s Dojo and test yourself against the most elite wrestler. She’ll be here each and every week showing the world that nobody does what she does in that ring, and why Deeb is The Final Boss. A huge challenge has been issued, will anyone step up?

 

Private Party VS Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal!

Marq Quen & Isiah Kassidy want to finally be at the top of the AEW Tag Division, but they’ve got to keep up the pace if they wanna reach it. Will they do just that against the Fallen Angel & Zen Assassin? Or will the former ROH World Tag Team Champions show them what it takes to really get there?

The teams sort out and Sydal starts against Zay. They circle and talk trash, Zay blaming Sydal for the loss in the Trios Triple Threat while Sydal says he was carrying Private Party. The two shove, then Sydal arm-drags! Sydal taunts Zay, dodges him, then tilt-o-whirls to RANA! Sydal then ducks ‘n’ dodges to RANA again! The fans fire up and Sydal runs up again. Tilt-o-whirl ARM-DRAG! Quen runs in, but into an arm-drag! Then Daniels gets in to arm-drag Quen! Zay arm-drags Daniels, but Sydla arm-drags Zay! The teams regroup and the fans cheer but the ref wants everyone to calm down. Quen and Daniels back off, but then Sydal and Zay tag them in.

The fans cheer as Daniels and Quen circle now. Quen is annoyed by how many are cheering for Daniels and not him. Quen and Daniels then tie up, Quen headlocks, but Daniels throws body shots. Daniels powers out, Quen rolls over the dropdown and starts up the “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant. Daniels smirks, runs up, but Quen trips him up! Quen speeds up, steps over Daniels, “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” Daniels is annoyed but he runs up. Quen bypasses but Daniels steps on him now! Daniels says “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” but then wags his fingers. He does the Curry Man Dance! The fans cheer but Quen runs up, into a hip toss!

Tag to Sydal, he and Daniels mug Quen, then Sydal whips Quen into a corner for the GAMANGIRI! Daniels feeds Quen to the ROUNDHOUSE then adds an STO! Sydal gets the fans fired up for the STANDING MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO! Sydal taunts Quen, brings him up, and KCIKS a leg! Tag to Daniels, he and Sydal double wrench Quen to bring him to his knees. Sydal KICKS and Daniels BLINDSIDE LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Quen stays in this and Collision goes picture in picture.

Daniels is annoyed but he brings Quen up to headlock. Quen powers out, drops down, and Zay gets a cheap shot in! Zay gets away from Daniels, and Quen DROPKICKS Daniels down! Daniels ends up on the apron, Zay tags in so he can jump in, springboard and STUNNER Daniels off the apron! Daniels staggers around, Zay distracts the ref so Quen can CLOBBER Daniels! Zay goes out to shine Daniels’ head, then put him in the ring. Zay stomps Daniels, then puts him in a corner. Zay stomps a mudhole now, then tags Quen. Private Party says “STOMPS! STOMPS! STOMPS!” but they stop as the ref counts.

Quen kick steps and rolls back to taunt Sydal, then goes back for Daniels. Quen UPPERCUTS Daniels, puts him in the corner, and digs his boot in. The ref counts, Quen lets off at 4, but Zay CHOKES Daniels behind the ref’s back! Sydal protests but that only lets Zay do more! Zay lets off in time, then tags in. Private Party whip Daniels to atomic drop and ENZIGIRI! Quen then sweeps Daniels’ legs and Zay adds the HIP DROP, into a CAMEL CLUTCH! Quen runs to LEAP FROG STOMP, and then Zay BLASTS Sydal off the apron! Sydal is furious and the ref reprimands Private Party, but they just soak up the heat.

Zay brings Daniels up but Daniels throws body shots and forearms! Daniels runs but Zay LARIATS him down! Zay stays between Daniels and his corner, then he brings Daniels up to snapmare and chinlock. Zay grinds Daniels down, Daniels endures, and Collision returns to single picture. Sydal coaches Daniels as he fights up, and Daniels throws body shots. Zay CLUBS away on Daniels, shines the bald head, then kicks low. But Daniels stops the Twist of Fate! Zay comes back, into a FLATLINER! Both men are down and the fans rally up! Zay and Daniels crawl, hot tags to Quen and Sydal! Sydal DROPKICKS Quen!

Sydal JUMP KICKS Quen, ROUNDHOUSES him, then JUMP KICKS Zay! Sydal KICKS Quen, KICKS Zay, repeat! The fans fire up, Sydal dodges Private Party and DOUBLE RANAS! Then QUESTION MARK KICK for Zay! Quen swings but Sydal gets under to wrench and lift, AIR RAID CRASH! Cover, TWO! Quen is still in this and Sydal grows frustrated. Sydal basement dropkicks Zay into buckles, then he runs corner to corner at Quen. Quen dodges and the splash hits buckles! Zay runs in, but Sydal BOOTS! Sydal runs up but Kassidy ducks, Quen BOOTS Sydal! Quen reels Sydal in, Kassidy goes up, but SWANTON NECKBREAKER COMBO! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up and Quen can’t believe it! Quen calls to Zay, they get Sydal up to mug him. Private Party double whip, Sydal KICKS Quen then HEEL KICKS Zay, and a ROUNDHOUSE to Quen! Tag to Daniels and he JABS away on Private Party. Quen kicks low, Private Party double whip, but Daniels ducks the lariats! Sydal & Daniels LARIAT Private Party! The fans fire up as Sydal goes up and Daniels brings Quen around. Daniels underhooks but Kassidy saves Quen! Quen back drops free! Sydal leaps over Quen to METEORA Zay! Daniels is back up, but Quen dodges to Michael Jackson “HEE HEE~,” only for Daniels to dodge the Pele!

Daniels reels Quen in for ANGEL’S WINGS!! Cover, but wait, who’s storming down the ramp? It’s TRIPLE J! Jeff Jarrett and Sonjay Dutt distract the ref, while Jay Lethal gets in to give Daniels a LETHAL COMBINATION! Lethal drags Quen onto Daneils and now the ref sees the cover, Private Party wins!

Winners: Private Party, by pinfall

Quen & Zay get an assist from their future tag partners in Revolution’s 12 Man Tag! Sonjay does his best to dance to the music, but will this dirty half dozen find a way to beat all the Six Man Champions tomorrow night?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Cassandra Golden!

Serena Deeb may be undefeated in her return, but so has La Mera Mera! The former AEW Women’s World Champion wants to get some gold again, will she make it 5-0 in 2024? Or will this Collision be Golden?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally as the two tie up and ago around. Golden shoves Rosa away, but Rosa shrugs that off. Golden runs in but Rosa gets her in a facelock! Rosa throws knees into Golden, but Golden powers up to throw Rosa away! Golden runs up, Rosa dodges the boot to BOOT Golden! Rosa eggs Golden on, then CHOPS her! And LARIATS her! Rosa fires up and the fans are with her! Rosa kicks Golden around, asks who is questioning her return, then bumps Golden off buckles. Rosa CHOPS, then CHOPS again! The fans fire up as Rosa stands Golden up and CHOPS again! Rosa then brings Golden around, fireman’s carries, but Golden fights free!

Golden ROCKS Rosa and Rosa staggers to a corner. Golden runs in, but Rosa dodges to SHOTGUN Golden down! The fans fire up and Rosa runs corner to corner to HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! Rosa pushes Golden out of the corner, climbs up the corner, and she DOUBLE DIVING STOMPS! Golden writhes but Rosa still keeps on her! COBRA CLUTCH STRETCH! Golden taps, Rosa wins!

Winner: Thunder Rosa, by submission

That’s a new twist to La Mera Mera’s arsenal! And she says it’s story time! “I’m still here, right? La Mera Mera hasn’t left. I know you wanna push me aside, but I won’t back down. Because it’s my time. And remember, get a little closer, because you’re gonna get burned!” Is nothing and no one going to stop Rosa from taking a title in 2024?

 

8 Man Tag: Orange Cassidy, Trent Beretta, Hook & Daniel Garcia VS Christian Cage, Killswitch/Luchasaurus, Brian Cage & Roderick Strong!

There are many titles on the line this Sunday, and the AEW International Championship and AEW TNT Championships are no exception! Freshly Squeezed will be facing the Savior of the Backbreaker while Captain Charisma will be facing the Dragonslayer, and let’s not forget the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil and Machine are both in the All-Star Scramble! Which quirky quartet captures some critical momentum just 24 hours away from Revolution?

The teams sort out and while Garcia is glaring at Christian, Christian of course backs down. Instead, we get Brian Cage and #JustTrent. They tie up, Cage shoves Trent to a corner but Trent dodges the clothesline. Trent CHOPS, Cage runs up but Trent dodges again to headlock. Cage powers up and powers out, then he runs Trent over! “Who betta than Cage, huh!?” Trent scrambles to his feet, talks it over with his corner, and tags in Garcia! Garcia dares Christian to step up but it’s Roddy who tags in instead. Roddy and Garcia circle but Roddy SPITS at Cassidy! Cassidy leaves that alone so Roddy and Garcia tie up.

Roddy and Garcia go around, Roddy wrenches through to wristlock. Garcia rolls, rolls and rolls to get free! The fans cheer as Garcia wags his finger. Garcia and Roddy feel things out, tie up, and Roddy wrenches to wrangle Garcia with another wristlock. Garcia fights up, but Roddy wrenches again. Garcia grabs at Roddy for a clinch, pushes him around and turns him, then slips to a headlock! The fans cheer this technical exchange as Roddy pries at the hold. Roddy pops out the back to headlock and hit the takeover. Garcia headscissors, Roddy moves around, and Roddy turns Garcia over. Roddy then ties the legs up, and he smacks Garcia on the head.

The fans boo but Roddy stares Garcia down. Garcia stands, they tie up, and go around. Garcia puts Roddy in a corner, the ref counts, and Garcia lets off slowly, to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP again! Garcia whips corner to corner, runs up and clotheslines, then brings Roddy in! Garcia lifts but Cage makes the save! So Garcia fires shots on Cage! Cage takes a swing but Garcia ducks, and Hook is there to ROCK Cage! They pinball Cage around, then Roddy runs in. Garcia sends Roddy into Cage, then UPPERCUTS Roddy! Garcia feeds Roddy to Hook’s SAYANAGI! The young studs fist bump and the fans cheer.

The ref wants someone to get in, so Killswitchasaurus and Captain Charisma step up! Cage also joins in, but then Cassidy & Trent back Hook and Garcia up! The fans fire up for the stare down, Collision goes picture in picture.

The ref has everyone cool off, but Christian still swipes at Garcia. Garcia kicks at Christian but this boils back down to just Garcia and Roddy. Roddy tags Cage back in, he circles with Garcia. They tie up, Cage RAMS Garcia into a corner! And again, and again! Cage then CHOPS Garcia while Prince Nana talks trash. Cage soaks up the heat, runs corner to corner, but Garcia BOOTS him! Cage tries again but Garcia dropkicks the legs out! Cage hits buckles, Garcia does his dance! Then Garcia BOOT WASHES Cage halfway out the ring! Garcia drags Cage up, UPPERCUTS him, then whips Cage to ropes. Cage reverses and Christian gets a cheap shot in!

Garcia swings on Christian but Christian scurries away, and then Cage CLOBBERS Garcia! Cage tags Roddy and Roddy drags Garcia up to CHOP him in a corner. And CHOP again! Roddy brings Garcia around, tags in Luchasaurus, and they mug Garcia. Luchasaurus scoops to SNAKE EYES Garcia, then runs to CLOBBER him! Luchasaurus stays between Garcia and his team, then drags Garcia up. Luchasaurus TOSSES Garcia to the corner, fires off body shots and an UPPERCUT, then tags in Christian. Now the Patriarch of AEW wants after Garcia, and he CHOKES Garcia against ropes as Collision goes to break!

Collision returns and Cage has Garcia in an open corner. Cage whips corner to corner, gets the Terminator drums started, then runs in. Cage blocks a boot to ROCK Garcia! Cage then scoops Garcia, but Garcia slips fere to shove him into the corner! Garcia climbs up on Cage and he rains down fists! The fans count along, but Cage shoves Garcia down at 6! Cage then drags Garcia up for the deadlift SUPERPLEX! Cage shouts, “Who betta than Cage?!” Fans boo but Cage tags Roddy. Roddy deadlifts Garcia for a BACKBREAKER! Roddy stomps Garcia, tags Christian, and they stomp Garcia together while fans boo.

Christian keeps Garcia from his team, puts him back int he corner and CHOPS! Tag back to Roddy, he CHOPS Garcia! Roddy CHOPS again, then tags Cage. The stomping resumes, and then Cage drags Garcia up. Cage RAMS Garcia into the corner, RAMS him again, then soaks up the heat. But Garcia fires off hands on the rest! Luchasaurus grabs Garcia by the neck, but Garcia HOTSHOTS the arm! Fans fire up, Cage runs in, but Garcia leaps at him! Cage picks Garcia up to suplex, but Garcia DDT COUNTERS! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! Hot tag to Roddy and he hurries, but hot tag to Trent!

Trent rallies on Roddy as revenge for what The Undisputed Kingdom has been up to! Roddy swings, Trent dodges to METEORA! Christian gets in, but he gets a GERMAN SUPLEX! Trent holds on, GERMAN SUPLEX again! Then the HALF ‘N’ HALF! Fans fire up as Trent dodges Roddy and gives him a TORNADO DDT! Trent builds speed and he DIVES, into Luchasaurus’ hands!

Trent goes to the apron but Roddy uses that to ROPE GUILLOTINE!

The fans boo and Trent flounders, but Collision again goes picture in picture.

Trent sputters, but Cage stomps him on the apron! The ref is too busy with Trent’s team as they protest so Cage gets away with that. Luchasaurus then CHOPS Trent in a corner! And ROCKS him! And stomps him! Luchasaurus drags Trent up, whips him corner to corner hard, and Trent tumbles up and out to the floor! Luchasaurus roars, Trent sputters, and the ref is busy with Cassidy so Christian gets a cheap shot in! Roddy wants one but the ref is paying attention to them by then. Luchasaurus fetches Trent into the ring, then keeps him from his corner with a chinlock. Luchasaurus CLUBS away on Trent’s chest!

Luchasaurus drags Trent up, tags in Christian, and The Patriarchy mugs Trent. Christian snapmares Trent and then claws at Trents’ face! The ref reprimands, Christian lets off to stare Garcia down, but Garcia almost gets a shot in! Christian taunts Garcia, brings Trent up, but Trent throws a forearm!

The fans fire up while both men are down! Trent and Christian crawl, their teams reach out, hot tag to Roddy, and he CLOBBERS Trent to deny Cassidy!

It is still chaos up and down and all around ringside, but will Christian survive Red Death to still be TNT Champion? Does Cassidy stand a chance of retaining the International Championship when he can barely stand on his own two feet? All this and more will be answered tomorrow night at Revolution!


My Thoughts:

A great Collision here, especially as the go-home to Revolution. I like the move of Mark attacking Buddy to “cancel a match,” and then Mark became a one man wrecking crew to really escalate things between him and The House of Black. I’m thinking if Mark doesn’t get allies to help him, then he should have some sort of three match series with The House. Mark will face each member 1v1, from Buddy to Brody to Malakai, and who knows how that goes, but Mark beating Malakai would be a good blowoff that also gets Mark towards a title story for the Summer. And really good promos from Swerve and Hangman to top off things for Revolution, with Hangman having a rather manic and desperate take on being a Face turning Heel. That’s a much more realistic turn in his character rather than the usual “I’m just a bad guy now” kind of stuff.

Really good segment from Wardlow, Jericho and Hobbs. While it’s not really good that Tony Khan books his people into these positions where their characters are always going, “It’s about time I get to do something in this company!” at least Wardlow is making the most of it with how passionate that promo was. And then while Jericho maybe goes one line too long for his part, at least Hobbs just beats Jericho down to make his point. Go-home math probably doesn’t work here, Jericho isn’t suddenly going to win out just because of this. I am still going with Wardlow as first pick, Hobbs as second.

Speaking of the Scramble, great Triple Threat, and a great win for Dante. I did not expect that, I really thought it was gonna be Penta, but Dante is another great high-flyer to get in on a rather bulky field. Great win for Mariah May, though I don’t think her matches have really gone long enough to showcase everything she can do. But it was also a great segue for Storm and Deonna to have their final face to face. Deonna stands tall because she puts the hurt on Mariah, that makes me think Storm retains and we slowly turn the corner to where Mariah gets fed up with Storm not caring about her at all, despite taking all these hits for her.

Great win for Thunder Rosa, and her little mini-promo after was really good, too. Again, feels like a case parallel to Wardlow about being a little annoyed at having to wait for stuff. Rosa did show up during the hype towards Collision’s debut, but then was not on a single Collision for months. Good promo from Deeb, too, and I want to say her saying “Final Boss” is some plug for Mercedes Mone to show up and be “THE Boss,” what with Big Business in Boston happening in a couple weeks. And apparently we’re not getting a TBS Championship or even a contender’s match. However, perhaps Willow & Kris VS Julia & Skye establishes someone as a #1 contender through the rankings to build towards the next PPV.

Really good stuff out of Bang Bang Scissor Gang, including their use of dysfunction within the group. They still win out because sadly, The Dark Order’s resurgence was only on ROH and then they got brought back to AEW just to eat losses. But with this being the second week in a row Caster can’t get a rap out, something is about to fall apart between the BBSG, whether we want it to or not. Meanwhile, Triple J helps Private Party win, maybe Jeff Jarrett wants to try and make a super group of his own. And apparently Lethal is onboard, because last we saw they were still arguing, so maybe Revolution swaps a super group we want for one that doesn’t make sense.

And great 8 Man Tag main event with a lot of stories plugged at once. The Heels winning made sense, and Trent taking the loss while Luchasaurus gets the win also makes sense. The math isn’t really affected by that necessarily, because then the chaotic brawl happens and we get varied results. Cassidy was beat down, so I’d think he beats Roddy. Meanwhile, Garcia threw Christian down before cameras cut away, so I guess that means Christian finds a way to win. Which makes sense, we just saw how Christian has three minions and Garcia only has Daddy Magic watching his back. That is, if Edge doesn’t show up to help Garcia.

Adam Copeland costing Christian the title rather than taking it himself would be good stuff for their feud, which doesn’t even really need the title. Edge VS Christian, The Final Chapter, just needs Luchasaurus to man up and turn on Christian and weaken the Patriarchy.

My Score: 8.8/10
