Axiom finds Nathan Frazer backstage.

Frazer is exiting WWE Medical and the report is that he needs a few more weeks. Well, he did tear himself up pretty bad in that North American Championship Ladder Match. Yeah, when Frazer said he left it all in the ring, it’s more than a catchphrase. Axiom gets that. But Frazer will be back before we know it. Frazer sure hopes so. But JD McDonagh isn’t so sure about that. Maybe leave the medical timeline to the experts, because maybe Axiom’s one of the smarter guys around, but he knows nothing about that four letter word, “Pain.” And Frazer’s not going to admit how beat up he is! Just look at how he’s standing, and how tight those neck muscles are.

JD is pretty sure Frazer got a herniated disk, in his… C4, perhaps? Frazer doesn’t have to tell him, though. But the silver lining is that Axiom wouldn’t have done any better in the ladder match had he won the Best of 3 Series. Oh, so what JD means is, Axiom would’ve pulled a JD McDonagh. So close time and again, but always failing to walk away with the title. How about JD breaks Axiom up so he can spend some time with Frazer in medical? Well, let’s just see who spells out that four letter word. Oh, they will. The Undeniable Truth and the Necessary Evil face off later tonight, who will be the one to feel the pain of defeat?

 

Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams return to the barbershop.

CutWiz plays host to another talk, and the streets are talking, too. Of course they are! They’re always talking about Trick ‘n’ Melo. What’re they saying now? That he didn’t win the North American title back and they wonder what his next move is? Trick knows Melo doesn’t listen to that noise. Trick says they aren’t wrong, but they ain’t right. Right? Because Melo sits here without the North American title, THE title that HE put on the map! That HE made famous! That he made more relevant than THE NXT Championship? Let’s talk about it! Look, let’s be real. Not one person has pinned him for that title, and that should still be his title!

And let’s not even talk about that six day trial champion, Solo Sikoa. Trick took a nap and missed the whole thing! That’s why when Melo went 1v1 with Grimes, he did what he said and won the belt back. But they should put respect on Wes Lee’s name for a minute. He did go through hell and back to get that title. He did aight. But what he didn’t do was beat Melo. And until then, you ain’t the A Champ, you’re a paper champ. Trick says Wes is a transitional chump! Wes went after the tag titles with Bron and what happened? Nothing! But Josh the barber says they should give it up to Wes, he has the whole NXT Universe behind him.

Trick throws down his hat. What the hell, Josh? Josh is just speaking facts, man. Well, alright, yes, Wes has the fans behind him. But what happens when it’s Wes VS Melo 1v1? Where are the fans then? Exactly! Wes is smooth, a good tag guy, but until you beat Melo 1-2-3 you are not “him.” Wes a crybaby! They took his head off with the locker! It’ll be a short reign. He was taken out after the fan vote for a reason. Now imagine when it’s all for the title. But how long is Melo going to wait? How about this, Mr. Barber? Two weeks, tops! And besides, the title looks better on the Trick Melo Gang anyway.

Melo says this is what we do: next week is the contract signing to make it official. Melo and Wes will be across the ring from each other, and they will handle it like Melo knows how to do, we already know the outcome. That’s all it is, and that’s all it’s ever gonna be. But will Melo return to being The A Champion when he goes up against the Must-See Kid?

 

The lights go out in the arena!

No, it isn’t the weather problems. It’s SCRYPTS! “My name is written on the walls. My voice sounds through the halls. And soon, I’ll be in NXT to watch the whole thing fall. Pain is truly among thee. Imagine what will happen, has happened, because it was always meant to be. Sincerely, SCRYPTS.” Just what will happen when SCRYPTS finally shows themselves in NXT?

 

Sol Ruca VS Elektra Lopez!

The Surfer Girl wiped out last time against Indi Hartwell, but she’s getting back up on the board. Will she ride a new wave of momentum? Or will La Madrina finally get what she wants now that she’s her own boss?

The bell rings, the two tie up, and they go around. Sol gets away but Lopez knees her low! Lopez throws Sol down, but Sol gets up to kick and throw Lopez by her hair! Lopez complains, Sol blocks her kick and then SLAPS and SLAPS! Sol whips, Lopez reverses and hip tosses, but Sol handsprings through to FACEBUSTER! Lopez bails out but Sol pursues, only for Lopez to CLOBBER her! Lopez puts Solo in the ring, covers, TWO! Lopez drops a knee right to Sol’s head! Cover, TWO! Lopez clamps onto Solo and CLUBS her down! Sol throws body shots but Lopez BOOTS her down! Lopez whips Sol into a corner, then reels her out for a short arm LARIAT!

Lopez jams a knee in, KICKS Sol down then drops an ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Lopez is frustrated but she chinlocks and thrashes Sol around. Fans rally, Sol endures and fights up, but Lopez hits a leg sweep! Lopez keeps on the chinlock but the fans continue to rally. Sol fights up again, shoots and rolls Lopez, TWO! Sol schoolgirls, ONE, but Sol LARIATS! And LARIATS! And DROPKICKS! Lopez staggers, Sol whips but Lopez reverses. Sol barrels through then runs Lopez over! Sol roars, handsprings and SPLASHES in the corner! Fans fire up as Sol goes up, but Lopez THROWS her off the top! And then DOUBLE HAND SLAM! Bridging cover, Lopez wins!

Winner: Elektra Lopez, by pinfall

That may not be an upset, but that was still an Elektric Shock from Lopez! La Madrina is back, but will she reach the top?

INDI ATTACKS! Indi and Lopez brawl at the ramp, referees rush out to stop this but that’s not so easy! Fans fire up, will Indi get some payback on Lopez in the near future?

 

Chase U prepares backstage.

Andre Chase is the one in the match tonight, but he’s reviewing term papers while Thea Hail is the one working up a sweat. Thea tells Mr. Chase that last week, Charlie Dempsey showed how much of a coward he was when he attacked from behind! If Mr. Chase doesn’t get him, Thea will! Let her at him! Duke Hudson says that when Chase sent him to the back last week, that… WAS A TEACHABLE MOMENT! Duke learned that they only win and lose between the ropes. So tonight, Duke wants to be ringside to support Chase, and only that, as Chase upholds the honor of the university “against that besmirching Charlie Dempsey!”

Chase gives Duke permission to let it all out! Duke is just saying, but when Dempsey attacked Chase last week, he attacked all of Chase U! He spat on the faces of anyone who has ever proudly worn this U on their chests! Thea says, “Tell him, Duke! TELL HIM!” Duke says Chase has beaten Charlie before, and he’ll do it again! Damn right! And it’ll be right now! DAMN RIGHT! Chase is gonna give that S O B a Chase U sized ass whooping! Duke, get the flag! Hands in! Chase U on three. One, two, three, CHASE U!! Let’s go get him!!

 

Jacy Jayne FaceTimes Mandy Rose.

Hey, girl~! Jacy just let the mall, and normally, that puts her in a good mood, but $4K later, and she’s still nervous about going to the NXT arena because of “Ms. Bonfire Jones,” Alba Fyre. Mandy says if Jacy is nervous, just don’t go. But Gigi Dolin has three cracked ribs from taking that Gory Bomb through the table last week! And Fyre did say… Yes, she’s a psycho. For all anyone knows, Fyre is standing outside the locker room. Probably. But she can wait all night for all Jacy cares. Mandy says Jacy can just hang with her at her place. Jacy says that’s a good idea, but then wait, sirens and lights? A mall cop…

What? What’s Jacy even doing? Who knows. Maybe this real-life Paul Blart wants an autograph. Or her number, heh. Ew, not even in this guy’s creepiest little dreams. But wait, it’s not a mall cop! IT’S ALBA FYRE!! She drags Jacy out of her car to beat her down! And then Fyre gets on the call! “Hi, Mandy~. I told you one by one, I was gonna take all of you out. Last week, I took out Gigi. This week, heh, I took out Jacy Jayne. And next week, I’m taking your title, and I’ll be the last woman standing. See you then.” Mandy hangs up, but how will she deal with this fierce ultimatum?

 

Andre Chase w/ Chase U VS Charlie Dempsey!

The Professor wasn’t expecting a blindside payback from the Son of the Gentleman Villain, as it wasn’t very gentlemanly. But will this be a #TeachableMoment that you don’t ambush Andre Chase? Or will Chase learn a little something about revenge being a dish served cold?

The bell rings, the two tie right up, and Dempsey wrenches and wristlocks. Chase returns the wrench and wristlock, but Dempsey breaks free to cravat and snapmare. Chase gest up but Dempsey runs him over. Things speed up, Chase hurdles and monkey flips Dempsey! Dempsey stagger sup, and Chase clotheslines Dempsey up and out! Duke keeps Thea from going right at Dempsey, but Chase goes out to kick and CHOP Dempsey! Chase bumps Dempsey off the apron, puts him in the ring, and brings him up to facelock. Dempsey pries at the hold but Chase clamps it back on. Chase rolls Dempsey but Dempsey stands up.

Dempsey NORTHERN LIGHTS! But Chase holds the facelock! Dempsey slips around to DOUBLE WRISTLOCK! Chase endures, the student section fires up, and Chase moves around! Dempsey gets the hold locked in but Chase cradles! TWO, and Chase JABS! JABS! And POLISH HAMMERS! Chase brings Dempsey up, atomic drops, and then whips, only for Dempsey to revere. Chase reverses back to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Fans fire up as Chase stomps and spells it out! C! H! A! S! E! U! “What does that spell?!” “CHASE U!!” But Dempsey fights the urenage! Chase slips around to full nelson but Dempsey breaks that to ankle pick, and ANKLE LOCK!!

Chase endures, crawls forward, and both Thea and Duke are there to cheer him on! Chase crawls but Dempsey creeps up to CLUB Chase down! Duke pushes the rope forward but Chase tells him no! The ref sees it, too, and he makes Duke stop! Duke is frustrated, but he has to do things Chase’s way. Thea swings the rally towel, but Dempsey puts Chase into a modified STF! Duke snatches the towel from Thea! He THROWS IN THE TOWEL!! The bell rings, Dempsey wins!!

Winner: Charlie Dempsey, by forfeit

Chase is let go, and he asks what just happened! Duke quit for Chase, and he apologizes. Dempsey gets the win because of it, but was he going to win it anyway? Did Duke teach everyone else that you gotta know when to hold ’em, and know when to fold ’em?

 

Backstage interview with Indi Hartwell.

McKenzie wants to talk about earlier, and Indi says, “Impressive, right?” What we saw was Indi figuring out just how this place really works. As in, NXT? YES. Elektra had that coming because Indi didn’t forget what Elektra did to her. Elektra made her return to NXT by going after Indi to prove a point. But NO ONE is going to prove a point on Indi. Sol Ruca? Sure, knock yourself out. But NOT on Indi! You have to take what you want, or else it won’t happen. Indi is locked in! People like to say they bet on themselves, so Indi’s putting it all on herself! Will #IndiWrestling not let Lopez do what she wants if it means pushing her aside?

 

Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen hang out at Fallon Henley’s bar.

They have a couple cold ones and talk football. But look who just walked in. Brooks’ eyes widen as he sees Kiana James and her assistant, Gia, walk up. Kiana says this property has promise, and Gia agrees. Briggs tells Jensen to get his eyes up! Briggs welcomes them and Fallon offers a drink. This isn’t about a drink, this is about business. As in, the proposal Kiana served them last week. Jensen says they can talk business right here, with him. Man, be smoother than that! He’s trying…! Fallon reminds them she said no. Well Kiana isn’t really taking no for an answer. Jensen says he’ll say yes, ma’am! Sigh…

Kiana says she sees potential in this place, and has offered far more than what it’s worth. What’s the hold up? Listen, Kiana. It’s a really nice offer, it really is, but she’s not interested. There are too many memories here, so Fallon ain’t selling. Jensen thinks Fallon should take the money but Briggs tells him that Fallon has principles. This isn’t about making a quick buck. So the most money any of them have ever seen in their entire lives is just a quick buck? Wait, how much is it? JENSEN! Fallon says she used to sit here cracking peanuts with her grandpa. Her uncle taught her how to play pool here, and she and her dad would play darts here every Thursday night.

The Henleys may not be rich by any means, but this bar has been in the family her entire life. And Kiana will build an apartment complex the family can live in the rest of their lives. She will make her best and final offer. Fallon says save it, it’s a no. Go build the apartment complex someone else. Fine, the Henleys can continue to live their miserable lives working month to month, land rich and money poor. Their loss. Then get out! Both of you! Hell yeah, hit the bricks! Briggs is Team Fallon, and so is Jensen, but will Kiana find a way to get her way?

 

Hank Walker VS Channing Lorenzo w/ Tony D’Angelo!

Security guard turned prospect turned NXT superstar is back in action, ready to keep this dream-come-true alive! But will he find the odds stacked against him? Or will he shock even The Don with this one?

The bell rings, fans rally for Hank, but Stacks throws hands! Hank ROCKS Stacks, stacks ROCKS Hank! Stacks fires off in the corner, digs his forearms in, but he lets off at 4. Stacks argues with the ref, but Hanks puts Stack sin the corner! Hanks throws hands, then he THROWS Stacks! Fans fire up and Hanks storms up to whip Stacks corner to corner. Stacks goes up and over then UPPERCUTS Hanks! Stacks headlocks, Hanks puts him in the ropes but Stacks holds on. Hank powers up and out and they RAM shoulders! Stacks staggers, Hank dusts himself off, then he shoves Stacks outta the ring!

Fans fire up but Tony is upset. The ring count climbs, Stacks hurries to the apron but Hank is there. But Stacks HOTSHOTS Hank away! Stacks then BOOTS Hank, storms up and CLUBS him. Stacks EuroUppers, then drop toeholds Hanks down! Stacks CHOP BLOCKS, then he hammers away with elbows! Stacks taunts Hank and the fans, but fans rally up. Stacks brings Hank up, throws a knee, and then another! Tony says Hank’s got nothing! Stacks KNEES Hank again, covers, TWO!! Hank is hanging tough but Stacks drags him up. Stacks slaps Hank around, but Hank blocks a kick! Hank shakes his head, and he LARIATS Stacks down!

Fans fire up as Hanks hits a THESZ PRESS! Hank rains down hands and he fires up! Fans rally as Hanks runs, into a BOOT! Stacks runs, into a POUNCE! Off comes Hank’s shirt! Fans fire up and Hanks runs in to SPLASH! Hank whips Stacks corner to corner to SPLASH again! Hank YANKS Stacks right up, for a SLAM! Hank snarls, he hoists Stacks up, but Stacks SLAPs him! Hank glares at Stacks, he pushes him in the corner, but Stacks thumbs the eye! Roll-up, TWO!! Hank escapes, Stacks runs to KNEE Hank down! Cover, Stack wins!

Winner: Channing Lorenzo, by pinfall

Tony says, “That’s what I’m talking about!” The Don is pleased with his right hand man for pulling it out, but will Stacks have to fight even harder if he’s struggling with Hank Walker?

 

Grayson Waller walks in backstage.

“Attention, all you beautiful Grayson Waller fans, and all you mindless, dense, half-wit simpleton NON Grayson Waller fans. Don’t even bother changing the channel, there’s nothing bigger than what I’ve got going on right now. Log onto Instagram, start sending your questions, cuz Bron Breakker, Von Wagner, and my show, the Grayson Waller Effect, next!” What will the 21st Century Success Story have in store for the NXT Champion and his next challenger? We’ll find out, after the break.

 

NXT presents an all new Grayson Waller Effect.

Waller is already in the ring and fans are already booing. “Welcome to the Grayson Waller Effect. Once again, all eyes on me, so let’s get that GWE TV camera right on me because I’m looking good, ladies and gentlemen.” Waller is live on IG, or maybe R-Truth is watching. How is he doing? At home recuperating after Waller whooped his ass? Maybe Lil’ Jimmy can get Truth a soda. Regardless, Waller is bringing us can’t miss TV! Next week, two titans fight for the top title, so let’s bring them out! First, the challenger, big bad Von Wagner! Vicious Von makes his way out, with Mr. Robert Stone by his side, and they go right to the ring.

And of course, the champion, bark it up for Bron Breakker! Fans do bark as Bron makes his way out, wearing a very Dog Faced Gremlin leather jacket. Bron joins everyone at the table, and Grayson welcomes them both. The chat’s going off so let’s get to it. Here’s a comment on screen. “Carmelo Hayes is stuck in the North American title division, but Von Wagner gets the NXT title match against Bron Breakker?” Waller has noticed more like this, and it seems the NXT fans don’t feel Von is deserving of this match. They think Melo does. Many think Waller does! Fans boo because that’s not true. But how does Von feel knowing the fans don’t think he deserves this match?

“Wow. Breaking news: more people don’t like Von Wagner. Hey, Waller, who said that stupid comment?” The username seems to be- Von just goes with “Joe Blow.” Joe must be in charge of NXT now. Stone, how about that? Stone says to be real. the fans never gave Von a chance. And why would they? They’re jealous of him! Von is a once in a generation kind of athlete! Von doesn’t expect fans to like him, but he isn’t here to be popular or a fan favorite. These fans can piss and moan all they want online, but Von is here for one thing and one thing only: the title. Von left Bron laying last week. And nothing’s gonna change next week.

Bron says Von shouldn’t get ahead of himself. He’s powerful and dangerous, sure, but- Stone stops Bron to say that Von is actually more powerful and more dangerous than anyone Bron’s ever faced. And to up that a bit, Stone even puts Bron on that list. Bron says he won’t disagree. Stats side by side, this looks like an even match-up. But how about Von tries that crap from last week here this week face to face, instead of from behind? Waller has them hold on. There’s a comment here that Waller wants Bron to see. “I’m ready to see ANYONE beat Bron Breakker!” Waller laughs and some fans do cheer, they can’t disagree.

And if not Von, then Waller can think of someone way more handsome that could take the title. But that’s a story for another time, “Mr. Intensity.” But under all that muscle, Waller knows Bron has a heart. How does that comment make him feel? Bron doesn’t dislike the fans, he understands where they’re coming from. NXT is about the future, about finding the next big thing. Last year, that was Bron. Bron was the up-and-comer. Now, he’s the champion and he has had the honor of learning from guys like Ciampa and Gargano, guys who said that if you want something in this business, you gotta go out and #DoItYourself! Fans do cheer that.

Bron says this title that Von wants so bad has a title that goes back a long way. Seth Rollins, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kevin Owens, all those guys were in the exact spot Bron is in now. Everyone in that locker room wants a shot. Hell, Von’s getting his next week. JD’s still breathing down Bron’s neck. Apollo Crews wants a shot. Oh, and Bron just said his name, so Apollo must be happy. But y’know what? The one thing that Von and all of them have in common is that no one is taking this title from Bron! Von says he will. Easier said than done. Von wants Bron to look at him when he’s talking. Stone adds Bron is a nervous champion, but Von tells even him to shut up!

Von says he IS dangerous! The first time Von stepped in the building, he got a title shot! It took Ciampa, Dunne AND LA Knight to stop him! Next week, it’s just Bron and Von, and Von’s gonna ragdoll Bron all over the ring! Bron may be second generation but so is Von! Von just didn’t exploit his to get his foot in the door, and he damn sure didn’t use it to get any stroke in this building. And Von won’t even need it next week to rip the title off Bron’s shoulder! Oh yeah? Then come try it right now! Grayson gets back to vlog this, and Bron stares down with Von. Stone says to leave it for next week. But then Bron SMACKS Stone off the table! Von and Bron stare down, but who will blink first (so to speak)?

 

Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

McKenzie says it has been a rollercoaster of emotions for him. From winning the North American Championship at Halloween Havoc to almost becoming a Double Champion last week, if not for Carmelo Hayes getting involved. Wes says he can’t lie, being a Champ Champ is historic stuff, but he’s not going to cry over that. Wes heard what Melo said in his barbershop, and he’s right. Wes didn’t pin Melo for the title, and Melo’s made this title THE title in the process. But Wes’s career was supposed to be done back in April, and he’s still here. The tag wrestler who was never supposed to hold gold is here as the North American Champion!

And in two weeks, Wes goes 1v1 with Melo, “the man who has been untouchable for over a year.” But somehow, someway, Wes will make Melo miss. They’ll sign the paperwork, make it official, and no matter what Melo brings to the table, he will not throw Wes off. Wes will roll like butter that you get once in a career, and not even Melo can stop him. You feel him? McKenzie says yes she does. Will Wes prove to Melo that in the end, Wes IS worthy to be champion?

 

Cora Jade speaks.

“Wendy Choo… Last week, you got involved in something that had absolutely nothing to do with you. Eavesdropping on other people’s business. Hell, you got all up in mine. And then you made the save for someone you probably don’t even know. Wendy, you don’t have a hero complex, you got a friend complex. And how do I know so much in intimate little detail? I don’t know you, I don’t wanna know you, but the fact is that you reek of desperation. Not desperate in the ring, we already know you can go. But desperate to be liked, to be accepted.

“You were the girl who sits alone at the lunch table, who sits by her phone ever Friday night, just hoping and praying that you would get a text to come hang out with one of the popular girls. But Wendy, you and I both know, that text never came. Wendy, you need to accept the fact that, no matter how hard you try, you will never be ‘in.’ As a matter of fact, you will always be on the outside looking in. So the next time you wanna make a friend at my expense, think twice about it.” Generation Jade puts the Queen of Comfy on notice, but will that only motivate Wendy to whoop Cora even more?

 

Apollo Crews speaks.

He tweeted out a video to show he was halfway across the world in Lagos, Nigeria, helping the WWE in their search for the next African superstars. There is a lot of talent here that could easily be the one. But when it comes to the search for the next NXT Champion, don’t look any further. Look deep into Apollo’s eyes, but don’t get lost, Bron! Because your next NXT Champion is right here. Will Apollo be right up after Von to take on Bron?

 

Axiom VS JD McDonagh!

Speaking of friends, the Undeniable Truth stood up for one of his friends, and is looking to take the fight to someone who doesn’t respect anyone anywhere. But will Axiom have the winning formula? Or will Axiom learn why no one bets against the Irish Ace?

The bell rings and JD circles with Axiom. They feel things out, tie up, and JD headlocks. Axiom powers out, JD runs him over! JD hits a headlock takeover but Axiom headscissors back! JD kips free but Axiom turns the tables with a headlock takeover of his own! JD headscissors, and he holds on tight as Axiom tries to kip free! Fans cheer the technical exchange, and Axiom moves around, Axiom headstands, turns JD over, and pops out to have the legs tied up. Axiom then grabs at the arms, and he shifts to a CATTLE MUTILATION! JD turns over but now it’s a motorcycle stretch. Fans rally, JD stands up and he flips through to then kangaroo kick!

JD whips, Axiom reverses and backslides, TWO! JD swings but misses, and Axiom O’Conner Rolls! TWO, Axiom returns but JD just avoids the enziguri! Axiom stares JD down and the two reset. JD calls for knuckle locks and Axiom obliges. But JD kicks low! Fans boo as JD knuckle locks and sweeps the legs. Cover, TWO as Axiom gets an arm up. JD puts it down, TWO as Axiom gets the other arm up. JD pushes that down, TWO as Axiom bridges! Fans applaud and Axiom stops JD’s jump to go up and over! But JD uses that to bring Axiom into the Gory Especial! JD bends the arms back but Axiom endures!

JD bends Axiom’s back, but still Axiom endures! Fans rally, JD makes this a backslide, TWO as Axiom gets a shoulder up! JD forces the shoulder down, TWO as Axiom gets the other shoulder up! JD pushes Axiom back down, TWO as Axiom bridges his neck! Fans fire up and Axiom sits up with core strength to sunset flip! TWO! JD swings, Axiom dodges to springboard arm-drag! JD gets up but into a DROPKICK! JD flops out of the ring, hurries back up, but Axiom GAMANGIRIS him right back down! JD is furious, Axiom and the fans are fired up, and NXT goes to break!

NXT returns and JD has Axiom down with a single leg deathlock. Axiom endures and fans boo as JD keeps the pressure on by sitting back. Fans rally, JD lets off on Axiom, but then he stands on the bad leg. JD lifts the leg, but Axiom uses that to get up and PELE! JD wobbles and falls over and fans fire back up! Axiom hobbles, JD stands, and Axiom CHOPS! JD ROCKS! Axiom CHOPS, ROCKS, CHOPS, repeat! Axiom whips and DROPKICKS! Fans fire up while JD flounders out of the ring! Axiom shakes out the bad leg, and he builds speed to the corner to go up and up and TRIANGLE MOONSAULT! Direct hit at the ramp and fans are fired up!

Axiom clutches his bad leg but fans rally for “NXT! NXT!” The ring count starts while both men are down. JD crawls away, Axiom forces himself to get up, and Axiom hobbles for the ring. The count is 7, then 8! Axiom slides in at 9 while JD fumbles, but JD springs in at 9.9! Fans rally up as Axiom stands, and JD KICKS the leg out! JD snarls, Axiom stands up, and JD KICKS the leg out again! Axiom staggers up again, and JD CHOP BLOCKS the leg! Fans boo but JD stalks Axiom to a corner. JD runs in, but Axiom goes up and Arabian Presses into a SLEEPER!! But JD flails and gets the ROPEBREAK!

Axiom lets go in frustration but he has the fans rallying behind him. Axiom drags JD up, runs, but JD drop toeholds! Down goes Axiom, and JD grabs the leg! Axiom BOOTS JD from below! And again! And again! But JD grabs that leg for the BOSTON CRAB! Axiom endures, crawls, fans fans rally as he reaches out! Axiom gets the ROPEBREAK! JD lets go in frustration now, and he brings Axiom up. JD ROCKS Axiom with a forearm! Axiom comes back to ROCK JD! JD ROCKS Axiom again, but Axiom fires off forearms! JD hits back, Axiom gives four! And a HAYMAKER! JD wobbles, swings, but into a waistlock!

JD bucks the O’Conner Roll, but Axiom kips up! But the leg holds him back! JD HEADBUTTS Axiom down!! JD drags himself to a corner and he climbs up top! MOONSAULT into a TRIANGLE HOLD!! JD flails, Axiom throws hands! The fans rally but JD powers up to deadlift and POWER- RANA!! Cover, TWO!! JD survives but Axiom PENALTY KICKS! Cover, TWO!! JD is still in this and “This is Awesome!” Axiom fires up and he goes to a corner. Axiom aims at JD as he rises. Axiom rushes in, but the leg holds him back! JD kicks the bad leg, ripcord, SLEEPER!! Axiom has JD caught again!!

JD pries at the hold, at the body scissors, and he stands, but into an ARMBAR!! JD clasps hands, rolls around, slips around and has a leg! JD CLUBS Axiom, bends the leg against itself, and the ref stops JD! Axiom’s leg may have just snapped apart! This seems eerily familiar, but Axiom says don’t stop it here! The ref stops JD all the same, and the medics check Axiom. Fans rally for Axiom, and Axiom refuses to quit, but the leg is NOT good! The ref calls it!

Winner: JD McDonagh, by referee stoppage

The Irish Ace promised to break Axiom, and he may just have! From Ilja Dragunov last week to Axiom this week, is JD going to do more than the necessary evil to get his way? JD gets the mic to say, “You see that right there? You see what that is? That’s a severe strain, not a tear, because I’m a nice guy! You know when I’m not a nice guy? When that necessary evil has to come out? When someone steps in between me and the NXT title. You don’t believe me, ask Ilja Dragunov! He’s still in the hospital three weeks later. This is a message to the rest of the roster back there. Any man back there, I am begging you, please someone get on my level! Someone test me! I’m looking at you, Apollo.”

The Irish Ace has called out Crews, but will he not like what Apollo brings to that fight? Or will JD just add Apollo to the list of those he’s torn apart to clear a path to the top title?

 

BIG news for next week!

Shawn Michaels himself will issue a statement about the final NXT special of 2022, NXT Deadline! What will the Heartbreak Kid have to say about what’s coming?

 

Five Minute Time Limit: Damon Kemp VS Brutus Creed w/ Diamond Mine!

The Golden Gopher doesn’t care that Julius Creed beat him and put him in an ambulance, he says that was all luck. But he’s looking to put #BigBrute through five minutes of hell! Will Kemp finally prove he is better than Brutus? Or will #BRUTUSSMASH and put Kemp behind him?

Speaking of smash, Brutus goes after Kemp right at the ramp! Brutus CLUBS away on Kemp, RAMS him into barriers, and fans fire up as Brutus throws Kemp into the ring. The bell rings, the five minutes begin, and Kemp RAMS Brutus into the corner! And again! And again! But Brutus DOUBLE CLUBS Kemp down! Brutus ROCKS Kemp, stalks him to a corner, and Brutus fires off big haymakers from all sides! The ref counts, Brutus lets off at 4, and then he clinches to hit an EXPLODER! Kemp flounders away but Brutus runs in to BLAST him off the apron! Kemp hits the barriers and Ivy Nile is there to talk some trash!

Brutus goes out to drag Kemp up, RAM him into steel steps, and Kemp tumbles over! Kemp clutches his leg, Brutus climbs up to roar, and fans rally with “BRUTUS SMASH!” Brutus goes after Kemp, but Kemp gets in the ring. Brutus grabs at the legs but Kemp kicks him! Brutus doesn’t let go and he yanks Kemp right out! Brutus smacks Kemp off the desk! And again! Brutus puts Kemp in and stalks Kemp. Kemp kicks the legs out! Kemp CLUBS Brutus down, POSTS Brutus, and then goes out as we approach three minutes left. Kemp grabs a chair from the timekeeper’s, and we know what he’s done with a chair before!

The ref tells Kemp no, that’ll be a disqualification. But Brutus SWATS the chair away! And he CLOBBERS Kemp! And CLOBBERS! And he SMASHES! Then SENTONS! And SENTONS again! Fans fire up with Brutus, and he grabs the chair! The ref tells Brutus no, there’s still two minutes left. Brutus says to hell with it! CHAIR SHOT!!

Winner: Damon Kemp, by pinfall

Brutus SMACKS Kemp again! That’s far from the ten Kemp gave Brutus, but Brutus let him win the match. Brutus drags Kemp up and says he’s a better man than Kemp! Fans cheer, and Brutus steps on the chair. That makes Brutus think, and fans chant “ONE MORE TIME!” Brutus says sure, and he SMACKS Kemp again! That’s three enough for Big Brute, will he and Julius finally move on to get Diamond Mine back on track?

Oh, speaking of moving on, Veer & Sanga are watching from the perch! Is Indus Sher what’s next for the Creed Brothers?

 

Another message from the mysterious man.

“I’ve wiped the slate clean for a fresh start, and left the past where it should be left. Understand that power doesn’t come from a title or position, it comes from getting the entire world to cooperate and play by your rules. The ones who are forthcoming get a pass. But the ones who don’t will be brought to justice. MY form of justice.” Who will this man deem guilty and in need of judgment?

 

Roxanne Perez finds Indi Hartwell backstage.

Roxie asks if everything is okay, and Indi says yeah, she’s good. Well, it just seems that Indi’s a bit different lately. Roxie tells Indi that if something is going on, she can tell her. Oh, as soon as Indi starts focusing on herself, something’s different? Did Roxie not learn anything after everything that happened between her and Cora? But Indi’s not Cora. Yeah, but there’s no friends in this business! Their biggest downfall is thinking they can become champions while having soft spots and benefits-of-the-doubt for everyone else. It’ll never work that way. This conversation proves it. Indi snubs Roxie, will Roxie have to learn things the hard way?

 

NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships: Kayden Carter & Katana Chance VS Zoey Stark & Nikkita Lyons!

Fans boo as Stark snatches the belt back up, and then throws it at Carter. Fans sing, “Oh~ Zoey is angry~!” Stark says she sure is angry! She blames Lyons for the losses, but should she look in the mirror instead?


My Thoughts:

A really good episode for NXT, though perhaps with some spinning of wheels to stretch things until NXT Deadline in a month. Though that said, we’re getting two big title matches next week. The Grayson Waller Effect as a series hasn’t been the best, but that might not all be on Waller. Waller’s charismatic, he’s really going for it since this is meant to be his show, but there’s nothing to be done with Dumpster Champion Von Wagner, and the already kinda tired, “YEAH! GET A DOG!” Bron Breakker. But it was only a matter of time before Bron and Von faced off, so I guess it’s fine they’re getting this out of the way on free TV.

I sensed Fyre attacking Jacy in her car, just not that way. I thought Fyre was already in the car as Jacy was making the call, but pulling her over was a good idea, too. Though it was kinda funny that the FaceTime name changed to Alba Fyre’s just because she hijacked Jacy’s phone. But Fyre saying “last woman standing” is of course setting up a Last Woman Standing match, and sadly that is just another opening for Toxic Attraction to help Mandy win. But at the same time, Fyre kayfabe injured Gigi and she might’ve kayfabe concussed Jacy, so maybe this will be an actual fair 1v1 match. And hopefully it’s as creative as Bianca VS Bayley at Crown Jewel, or else it’ll really suck if Mandy just keeps retaining.

We got great stuff out of Melo, Trick and Wes to set up their North American Championship match, which will be an awesome match. But that also not happening at Deadline, no wonder HBK is going to tell us just what is up with that. I would think Wes wins out, he just got the belt and has plenty of names to face as we enter a new year. And given the Grayson Waller Effect did bring up the conversation of Melo needing to move up to the top title, I would hope Melo gets in on that with 2023, regardless of who has the belt. Apollo had a good promo, and of course he calls out Bron, because Bron’s retaining against Von.

JD and Axiom gave us a great match that wasn’t even the main event, and I actually really liked that they recreated the spot from NXT UK when Devlin damaged A-Kid’s leg with that deep Calf Crusher, because duh, Axiom is A-Kid. I don’t see them fully recreating that story from NXT UK where Axiom tricks JD into a rematch, but this could inflate JD’s ego into not thinking Axiom and/or Ilja will return sooner than expected. Of course JD calls out Apollo, they’re basically going to have a #1 contender’s match where the winner surely faces Bron at Deadline to see if Bron makes it out of 2022 still champion. And given Ilja will want revenge, I am thinking Ilja costs JD and Apollo moves on to face Bron.

Really good match from Grimes and Gacy, but if that’s how the feud ends, that was rather anti-climactic. Of course Ava and The Schism cost Grimes, that’s a very Judgment Day Rhea Ripley move. But there has to be something where Grimes comes back for more, because we need something much more definitive for Grimes and Gacy. Lopez of course beats Sol Ruca, and naturally, Indi goes after Lopez. Indi is becoming a bit of a Tweener, as she’s going after Heel Lopez but is snubbing Face Roxie. Lopez has to win the feud, though, and send Indi on her way to Raw. As for Roxie, she’s floating a bit without a story, and Cora has moved on to Wendy. Cora had a good promo, I have a feeling Wendy responds with actions rather than words.

Scrypts gets a bit more bold with his messaging as he “hacks” the arena for another of his ominous poems. But with Dijak giving us another message, Scrypts and Dijak are already overlapping in certain ways. Again, I hope Scrypts is really good in the ring to make up for this really cliché character build. Good match from Stacks and Hank Walker, and those knees Stacks was throwing got rather flush at parts. Hank didn’t get a bloody nose, surprisingly, but of course Stacks wins to continue as Tony D’s number one guy. Maybe Quincy Elliot helps Hank out at some point, and we build to a tag match of Quincy & Hank VS Stacks and a healed up Tony.

Great stuff out of Chase U, with Thea Hail just being a bundle of energy again. Duke said he’d play fair but he did try to help Chase to the ropes. And then Duke, perhaps compassionate but also perhaps to passive aggressively screw Chase over, throws in the towel. I like these layers in the Duke Chase U story, and I do wonder where this is going. Meanwhile, it seems Kiana is actively shifting attention away from her Chase U plans to go after Fallon’s family bar. Fallon VS Kiana for the right to the bar has to be coming at Deadline, and maybe Pretty Deadly end up tied into this so Briggs & Jensen can go after the tag titles again.

Kemp VS Brutus was good stuff, but I should’ve realized they weren’t even going to need five minutes. Brutus gets payback with the chair, and maybe for now, they think they’re past Kemp. But Indus Sher showing up when Kemp swerved Brutus on the match last time, and then showing up again after Kemp gets beat down, maybe Kemp joins Veer & Sanga against Diamond Mine, giving Roderick Strong a reason to heroically return for a big Six Man before a 2v2 of Creeds VS Indus Sher, winner moving on to go after Pretty Deadly. And speaking of tag titles, we got a great main event out of the women’s tag titles, and I’m a touch surprised Lyons & Stark lost.

However, in them losing, I wasn’t that shocked that Stark turned on Lyons. They’re going to feud now, that’ll help build both of them into top title contenders, with the winner being next up. If Fyre beats Rose, then Stark as the new Heel would make sense for a challenger. If Rose somehow retains, then Lyons as a strong Face would make sense.

My Score: 8.5/10

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~!

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?

Keith HEADBUTTS Penta, reels him in, DIAMOND- NO, Penta stops that and Dante SUPERKICKS Keith! Penta uses Keith for a step, DESTROYER on Dante! Cover, Keith breaks it!! Keith saves Dante but also himself in this match, but “CERO! MIEDO!” continues to echo out in Huntsville. Keith storms up, but Penta KICKS and KICKS and “CERO! MIEDO!” Springboard, but into a BOOT!

Winner: Dante Martin, by pinfall (advances to Revolution)

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?

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.

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!

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!

Both men are down and the fans fire up again! Hot tag to Roddy and he hurries, but hot tag to Trent!

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
