Jon Moxley VS Sammy Guevara w/ Tay Melo!

Just when The Maniac thinks the feud is over, the Spanish God drags him back in! The Blackpool Combat Club and Jericho Appreciation Society are far from through with each other, but will Moxley put Sammy in his place?

The bell rings and Sammy KNEES Moxley down! Sammy stomps Moxley in the corner, Tay talks trash, but the ref counts. Sammy lets off at 4, soaks up the heat from Dallas, then storms up on Moxley to CHOP him in the corner. Moxley storms around, Sammy pushes him to another corner, but fans chant “SAMMY SUCKS!” Sammy tunes that out to climb up and BITE Moxley’s forehead! The ref counts, Sammy lets off, but Moxley avoids the haymaker to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP again! Moxley whips corner to corner, Sammy bounces off buckles into a LARIAT! Daniel Garcia is watching this backstage, as Jericho told him to learn from “Sammy-senpai.”

Moxley throws Sammy out of the ring, then goes out to pursue. Tay scurries away and Moxley bows to her. Sammy JUMP KNEES Moxley again! Sammy makes Moxley to take a seat and CHOPS him! Sammy talks trash while he claws at Moxley’s face! Sammy CHOPS Moxley again, but Moxley stands up to lift Sammy! Moxley makes Sammy take a seat across the railing! Sammy’s dragon balls hurt, but Moxley CLOBBERS him off the railing! Moxley paces while Tay checks on Sammy. Moxley brings a chair over, stands on it to drag Sammy up and out from the crowd.

Moxley whips Sammy to ropes but Sammy reverses. Sammy hurdles, backflips and DROPKICKS Moxley down! Sammy kips up so smooth while Moxley bails out. Only Tay cheers as Sammy goes to the corner. Sammy climbs up while fans boo and give thumbs down. Sammy reaches the top, says he’s loco, but Moxley ROCKS him first! Moxley then climbs up after Sammy, CLAWS Sammy’s back, but Sammy CLUBS Moxley! Sammy CLAWS Moxley now! Moxley BITES Sammy’s forehead! Moxley brings Sammy around, but Sammy fights! Sammy CLUBS away on Moxley again and again and again, then trips Moxley up!

Moxley clutches a knee, Sammy DIVING STOMPS Moxley to the apron! Moxley flops to the floor while Sammy gets in the ring, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

The ref checks on Moxley but he’s somehow okay to continue. Sammy soaks up the heat, goes out after Moxley, and RAMS him into steel steps!

Sammy BITES the ear again! Sammy puts Moxley in the ring, and Rampage returns to single picture.

Sammy pushes Moxley around, throws down forearms, then stomps him down. Sammy rains down fists but Moxley pushes him away. Moxley staggers and Sammy KICKS his leg out!

The ref counts, Sammy lets off but soaks up the heat as he shows off the blood on his lips. Sammy brings Moxley up but Moxley CHOPS!

Moxley CHOPS and CHOPS but Sammy KICKS the bad leg! Moxley drops, Sammy drags him into a chinlock and he just CLUBS away on Moxley! The ref reprimands but Sammy lets Moxley go. Moxley crawls to ropes, and Sammy CHOKES him! The ref counts, Sammy lets off and argues with the ref, but this is a distraction so Tay can pull on Moxley’s ear! Tay mocks his pain and wipes his own blood on his face before she SLAPS him! Sammy goes out to give Tay a kiss! As if it isn’t nasty enough normally, they have Moxley’s blood on their hands and lips! Speaking of Moxley, he builds speed and DIVES onto Sammy!!

Fans fire up as Moxley and Sammy wipe out, right in front of Tay! Moxley stands back up, Tay hurries away, and Moxley hobbles over to Sammy. Moxley drags Sammy up, puts him in at “OCHO!” and then hurries to fire himself up. Moxley runs corner to corner to clothesline in the corner! Moxley stands up to rain down fists! All the way to “OCHO!” and then TWENTY! Moxley lets off to run, but Sammy shoots around to waistlock. Moxley switches, lifts and GERMAN SUPLEXES, but Sammy lands on his feet!

BULLY CHOKE!!! Sammy reaches out, but he’s fading out! The ref calls it, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission

Daniel Garcia sighs and shakes his head. Does the Dragonslayer disapprove of how Sammy-senpai went about that? What will Garcia learn from watching this loss?

As for Moxley, he gets a mic and says, “I told ya where I would be on Friday night, and I’m right here. So Cowboy, where are ya? I ain’t waitin’ all night!” Well here comes HANGMAN! Evil Uno wants Hangman to think about this but he doesn’t care, he’s storming down that ramp! Moxley meets him halfway and the brawl is on!! They throw haymakers, fans are thunderous as Hangman gets the edge! Hangman puts Moxley in the ring and fans are ready for “COWBOY SH*T! But security stop Hangman from getting at Moxley! Hangman kicks them all away, slingshots, BUCKSHOT hits a security guard!

Fans fire up as Hangman pursues Moxley on the outside, and LARIATS him into the crowd! Security and referees, and even the rest of the Dark Order, drag Hangman away! Hangman wants to fight the Maniac, and so does Moxley! How long will they have to wait for this one to be resolved?

 

Saraya speaks on Hayter VS Shida.

The Revolution says, “Both of these women are AEW Women’s Champions. I wanna watch very closely, cuz I’m coming for that championship.” Saraya also tells Britt Baker, “Last week, you gave me some tickets.” Saraya can either be a fan at the Kia Forum on January 11th, or she can get in the ring for a tag match with Britt & Hayter. Those two “have been nothing but menaces backstage. I have such a plethora of talent to choose from, and we’re coming for you.” So then, who is joining Saraya against “The Pillar & The Killer?” We’ll just have to wait and see in 2023.

 

Rampage returns with FTR in the ring.

Fans fire up for Cash Wheeler & Dax Harwood, and they have the mics. Cash says, “Last week kinda sucked, I won’t lie. And it’s probably not for the reasons you think. It’s not just because we lost the AEW Tag Team title match. It’s not just because we lost the ROH Tag Team titles. It’s not just because Dax broke his ass bone.” Dax even pulls his pants down enough to show where it broke! Cash wasn’t kidding. But what sucked was that, on top of all that, Cash & Dax feel like they let the fans down. Fans boo because that’s the furthest from the truth! But FTR says they hate feeling like that, because all year, the fans have lifted them up!

Cash says the fans made 2022 the best year of their careers, and one of the best years of Cash’s life! And FTR owes the fans eternally for that. Fans chant, “You Deserve It!” in reference to everything great they got to do this year. FTR thanks the fans for that, and Cash says this has been a legacy year for them, and hopes that this is a legacy they can be proud of. But… There are a couple kids with daddy issues trying to get FTR’s attention. Austin & Colten Gunn, this is for you: “You say you’re gonna kill our legacy, but I promise you, if anybody is gonna kill our legacy, it sure as HELL not gonna be a couple of Dumbass Boys!”

Dax says, “Saturday night at Final Battle, I brought my family with me, and uh, after I came to the back, and I was all beaten up and bloodied, I saw my daughter run up to me. And I thought she was gonna say, ‘Daddy, that was a great match,’ or, ‘How’re you doing?’ I was expecting that, and I didn’t hear that. She said, ‘Daddy, those people kinda like you.’ And I said, ‘Yeah, baby, they do kinda like me.’ And she looked at me and she said, ‘Why?’ And I was like, damn… That hurt right in the heart.” But then Dax got to thinking about it, and he wondered, “Yeah, why? Why do y’all like us?” Dax isn’t sure he gets it.

Fans cheer to show they like him, but Dax says he does know this: ever since he was 8 years old, pro-wrestling is all he’s ever wanted to do. And he knows that since he was 8 years old, he’s wanted to make the people feel the love and the passion he has for pro-wrestling. Fans cheer for that! Saturday night, Final Battle, that was FTR’s opportunity to make fans feel a certain way. Win, lose or draw, FTR was gonna make fans feel. And then Austin & Colten ruined that. This Wednesday on Dynamite, FTR will do to them what Daddy Ass should’ve done a long time ago. FTR is gonna tan their hides! Just kidding, they’re gonna whoop some ass! #TopGuysOut!

 

Jade Cargill speaks.

The UNDEFEATED AEW TBS Champion tells The Baddies that they did just what she said they would. But Leila Grey shows him something. It’s footage of Red Velvet “looking salty.” Why? Is she gonna get with it or get lost? Leila helps Jade fix her hair, and Velvet rolls her eyes behind Jade’s back. Is there cracks in the foundation of this faction? Jade continues on to tell Bow Wow that the next time he wants to interject himself into her business, her lawyer, Mark Sterling will be in contact. Will Bow Wow stop barking up the wrong tree? Or is he going to invoke the wrath of #ThatBitch?

 

Britt Baker w/ Rebel & Jamie Hayter VS Skye Blue!

The Doctor prepares for her tag team match alongside the AEW Women’s World Champion, but she also looks to settle things with one young and hungry competitor. Will Britt leave Skye feeling gloomy? Or will Skye upset the Face of the AEW Women’s Division?

The bell rings and Britt circles with Skye. They tie up, Britt wrenches an arm to a wristlock but Skye cartwheels to wrench and hammerlock. Britt drops down to roll and drag Skye into a headscissor. Britt pushes up for pressure but Skye shifts around. Britt blocks with a facelock then underhooks the arms for a BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Cover, ONE! Britt CLUBS Skye for that, then brings Skye up again. Skye blocks the suplex, wrenches out and slips around to then spin and arm-drag Britt away! Britt stands back up, runs in at Skye, but Skye sidesteps and follows. Skye blocks Britt’s hip toss to hit another arm-drag, into a lateral press! TWO!

Skye hurries to SUPERKICK Britt down! Fans fire up with Skye ass he climbs, and Rampage goes picture in picture.

Britt distracts the ref, and Rebel goes up after Skye! Skye kicks Rebel away but Hayter CLUBS Skye! Britt hurries up to ROCK Skye, then she drags Skye out for a DRAPING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Britt rains down forearms in frustration, then covers, TWO! Britt drag Skye up, DECKS her, then grins as she stalks Skye to ropes. Britt drags Skye up to whip into a corner, then she distracts the ref again so Hayter and Rebel can CHOKE Skye! Britt then storms up to choke Skye herself! Britt stomps Skye, drags her up, and she brings Skye around to BUTTERFLY SUPLEX again! Cover, TWO!

Britt is frustrated with Skye more, and she clamps on for a chinlock. Britt throws down elbow after elbow, then pushes Skye to a cover. TWO, and Britt argues the count. The ref says the count was fair, so Britt stands Skye up to ROCK her with a forearm. Britt whips and LARIATS Skye down! Britt pushes Skye around, drags her up again, but Skye throws body shots! Skye ROCKS Britt, but Britt throws her down by her hair! The ref reprimands Britt but Britt just dusts off her hands. Britt kicks Skye around, just toying with her, and Rampage goes to break.

Rampage returns and Britt ripcords Skye, but Skye ducks the discus! SUPERKICK! Britt falls, Skye covers, TWO! Skye grits her teeth while Britt checks hers. Skye drags Britt up, but Britt shoves Skye away. Britt redirects, then SLINGBLADES! Skye staggers up, Britt spins her around, BUTTERFLY SLAM! Cover, TWO! Skye survives but Britt gets the glove from Rebel! Fans are torn as Britt holds up her hand. But she turns around into a SHINING WIZARD! Skye cradles Britt, TWO!! Skye SUPER- NO, Britt blocks and spins Skye, but Skye BASEMENT ENZIGURIS! Britt wobbles, Skye runs and hops on, CODE- NO, Britt shrugs Skye off! SUPERKICK!

Britt snarls, runs, CURB STOMP!! Cover, Britt wins!

Winner: Britt Baker, by pinfall

Skye tried but she could not bring down The Doctor! But Britt isn’t done, she clamps on to Skye with the LOCKJAW!! She makes the upstart suffer, but wait! Here comes SHIDA! The Full Metal Warrior storms right up, she KENDO STICK SMACKS Rebel! She slides into the ring, Britt dodges once but the stick comes back around, SMACK! Now it’s just Shida and Hayter! Hayter holds up her belt but Shida says it’ll soon be hers! Hayter backs down, but will the Holiday Bash be ruined when Shida takes the title?

 

Jim Ross has a sit-down interview with Preston Vance.

Good ol’ JR says there’s a lot of “sensitive ground” to cover here. The former Number 10 turned his back on his “family,” as it were, in The Dark Order. How does he justify this? Vance will answer that by asking JR a question: “Who’s your boss in AEW?” Well, Tony Khan, of course. Then it’s not some ten year old kid? No. Cool, because now, neither is Vance’s. Everyone thinks Vance is the bad guy for turning on his “family,” but they’re not his brothers. He was hand-picked by the late Mr. Brodie Lee. None of those other guys were! He was a college athlete, none of those guys are on the same level as him!

Vance’s real brothers in AEW are Rush, Jose, and the rest of La Faccion Ingobernable. They all see the same potential that Mr. Brodie Lee saw in him. Then what about Brodie Lee Jr, aka Negative One? He lost his father, and Vance has only compounded his grieving by doing this. Vance says this is one thing they can agree one: no kid should ever have to go through that. What that kid went through the last couple years, no one should ever feel that. But over the span of these two years, Negative One “has turned into a snot-nosed, spoiled brat. It is what it is. If I have one message to give to Little Brodie, it’s hey kid, time to grow up.”

Number 10 no more, Vance leaves the interview at that. But are things truly over between him and the Dark Order?

 

Wardlow VS Exodus Prime!

He may no longer be AEW TNT Champion after Samoa Joe’s betrayal, but this is still Wardlow’s World! Will the Maestro of Mayhem be inspired to write new movements in the Powerbomb Symphony until he gets his 1v1 rematch with Joe?

The bell rings and Wardlow circles with Prime. Fans rally for “WARD~LOW! WARD~LOW!” while Prime kisses his own biceps. Prime and Wardlow tie up, Prime gets around and UPPERCUTS! And forearms! And uppercuts again! Then he HEADBUTTS! But Wardlow stays standing, and just snarls while Prime talks himself up. Prime turns around to see Wardlow glaring at him, and then Wardlow HEADBUTTS! Wardlow winds up and LARIATS Prime inside-out! Fans fire up and Wardlow brings Prime up! Wardlow reels Prime in, for the POWERBOMB! Fans fire up and want the encore!

Wardlow conducts the chorus of “ONE MORE TIME! ONE MORE TIME!” and then he drags Prime back up! SECOND POWERBOMB! Prime tumbles and Wardlow is feeling it! The fans fire up as Wardlow gets Prime up again, THIRD POWERBOMB, then the roll through to the FOURTH POWERBOMB!! Cover, Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

Wardlow wins but he wants to talk! “JOE! You said I can wait my turn! I say I’ve waited too! Damn! Long!! And I’m not waiting another second! Bring your ass out here so I can whoop it all over Dallas!” But Joe is on the tron, both AEW TNT and ROH TV Championships on his shoulder. Joe mocks the “WARD~LOW!” chant, then says, “Who are you to dictate anything to the King of Television? But despite your insolence, you need to understand that I set the conditions. So I offer you the King’s Terms. I will NOT defend my championship against you here tonight, I will not defend my championship next week in San Antonio.

“As a matter of fact, I hope I never defend a championship in this godawful state ever again!” Fans boo, you don’t mess with Texas! But Joe says he will be a gracious king and grant Wardlow clemency. In fact, he hopes Wardlow has the merriest of Christmases. Then on December 28th, in Colorado, he will give Wardlow everything he wants! “And despite how much you’ve lied to yourself, huh, Wardlow, you will be found wanting. The King has spoken.” Wardlow smirks as Joe at least gives him that opportunity he wants. What will happen when these two titans collide for New Year’s Smash?

 

Mark Henry interviews tonight’s main eventers.

The World’s Strongest Man says Trent Seven joined forces with Kip Sabian in stomping down Orange Cassidy. Why? Seven says the real question is, “How lucky are we all that there are direct flights straight from Moustache Mountain all the way here to Dallas?” And as far as last week goes- Kip has Seven stop there. Kip says after a rocky start, Seven here saw sense! “He embraced the change.” It was once said, “You cannot climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.” And Cassidy, well, he proved that saying wrong. But those same hands were given opportunity after opportunity, and that doesn’t sit well with Kip’s crew.

Butcher says he has been “waiting all week for someone to dial 1-800-See-Ya.” Butcher wonders why “Best Crumbs” haven’t called. Butcher is sick of talking, he wants to fight, cuz he doesn’t like any of them! And Blade says, “Newsflash, slick! You know what we’re gonna do? We’re gonna slice, we’re gonna dice, we’re gonna split ya open, we’re gonna watch you spill your guts!” Even Seven winces. Mark says it looks like there’s been enough talk. But Dustin says hold on, their side didn’t get to say anything. Chuck Taylor puts out “See Ya” isn’t enough for a real phone number. Trent Beretta says those are letters anyway.

Dustin says now they’re done. Then it’s time for the main event! Will the #NaturalBestFriends get back at the #SuperBadSuperSquad for the extracurriculars next week? Or will Kip, the mercenaries and the Man from Moustache Mountain make minced meat out of all of them?

8 Man Tag: Dustin Rhodes & Best Friends VS Kip Sabian, Trent Seven, The Butcher & The Blade!

The teams sort out and Trent Beretta starts against Mr. Superbad himself. Trent is calling out Trent! Fans rally up and Kip obliges. Kip walks over and tags in Seven! Fans rally for Trent as Trent and Trent say they’re THE Trent. Seven CHOPS, Beretta forearms! Seven and Beretta forearm back and forth while fans cheer for “TRENT! TRENT! TRENT!” Seven CHOPS again, and CHOPS again, and CHOPS again! Beretta wobbles, but he fires up! Beretta shouts, “I’M TRENT!!” And he CHOPS, ROCKS, repeat! Trent winds up but Seven blocks the superkick! Bop up, BANG for Trent! Then ripcord, but Trent ducks and runs, DOUBLE LARIATS take the Trents out!

Fans rally, Butcher & Blade rush in but Dustin and Chuckie T intercept! They brawl with forearms, Chuck throws Butcher out while Dustin stomps Blade. Cassidy slowly steps in but so does Kip. The ref catches Cassidy’s sunglasses, Kip rushes in but Cassidy trips Kip! Kip kicks Cassidy away, things speed up, Kip hurdles but Cassidy leaps! Cassidy arm-drags Kip out to kip up! Fans fire up as Cassidy puts his hands in his pockets! But of course, the Superbad Girls, Penelope Ford & The Bunny step up to shield Kip. Cassidy stops in his tracks, and Butcher CLOBBERS him! Kip drags Cassidy out to DECK him, but Beretta SHOTGUNS Butcher!

Butcher is in a corner, Trent forearm smashes him while Kip whips Cassidy into railing! Bunny frolics and Ford follows while the others keep brawling. Trent runs but Butcher back drops him! Butcher drags Trent up, Blade gets in, POP-UP KICK! Bunny applauds but fans boo while Rampage goes picture in picture!

Seven crawls over and tags in Blade. Blade drags Beretta up, bumps him off buckles, then ROCKS him with a haymaker! Tag to Butcher, they mug Beretta with DOUBLE HEADBUTTS! Tag to Kip and Kip joins in on a DOUBLE HEADBUTT! Kip takes a bit of damage himself, though, and has to tag Blade back in. Blade drags Trent up to ROCK him with a forearm! Blade bumps Beretta off buckles, stomps him, then tags Seven in. Seven wrenches Beretta to CHOP him! Beretta goes to a corner, Bunny talks trash, and Seven runs in corner to corner. Beretta BOOTS Seven, reels him in, and TORNADO- NO, Seven stops the DDT!

Seven fakes the chop and sucker Beretta into a DDT! Seven drags Beretta to a cover but Chuck breaks it! Seven swings on Chuck but Chuck counter punches! Beretta ENZIGURIS Seven down, then hot tags Cassidy! Cassidy goes up top, CROSSBODY onto Butcher! Cassidy ducks ‘n’ dodges Blade, tilt-o-whirls, but Blade blocks the DDT! Blade swings Cassidy around into a a gut wrench! Cassidy flails but Butcher runs in, LEG DROP SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! Butcher drags Cassidy up, bumps him off buckles, then drags him back up to whip him hard into the Superbad corner! Tag to Kip and he drags Cassidy up.

Kip cravats, snapmares, and then lines up the shot. He mocks Cassidy’s “devastating” kicks! Kip smirks as he “kicks” Cassidy, but then Cassidy blocks one! Kip stomps away on Cassidy for real for ruining the fun! Kip drags Cassidy up, bumps him off buckles, and tags Blade. Blade drags Cassidy up to CHOP! Cassidy staggers away but Blade boots him down. Blade CHOKES Cassidy on the ropes, Bunny AND Ford are there to talk trash, but Blade lets off as the ref counts. The ref reprimands everyone, Danhausen also admonishes them, but Blade drags Cassidy up. Blade reels Cassidy in, says he’s gonna bring Cassidy down, but STUN-DOG MILLIONAIRE hits!

Cassidy crawls, Blade anchors a foot, but Cassidy fights up. Rampage returns to single picture as Cassidy kicks Blade away! Hot tags to Seven and Dustin!

Winners: Dustin Rhodes & Best Friends, by pinfall

A huge win for the Texas legend and his new Best Friends! Will this victory bring Dustin something big for the holidays?


My Thoughts:

Another great Rampage, with some pretty good set-ups for the following weeks. Moxley VS Sammy was a great opener, and leave it to Moxley to find another way to bleed. Moxley winning makes sense as it adds to the story for Sammy and Garcia. Garcia might question why he’s learning from Sammy when Sammy has been losing, too. Moxley and Hangman brawling was a natural move, too. With the “Hangman isn’t cleared” angle to the story, I have a feeling, and am kind of looking forward to seeing, an “Unsanctioned” Match between them. They can really go all out and it won’t hurt either guy in the rankings since Unsanctioned means it won’t count on the record.

Good promo from Saraya to both hype up Hayter VS Shida and her own match with Britt & Hayter in January. Saraya says there’s a lot of people to choose from, but I still feel like Toni Storm makes the obvious but also right choice given the story. If not Toni, then maybe it’ll be Shida, assuming Britt helps Hayter win or something. Britt VS Skye was a good match but of course Britt has Rebel and Hayter help her here and there. Shida fighting Britt and Rebel off Skye was good stuff, as was the stare down between Shida and Hayter. And good promo from The Baddies. If Velvet isn’t feeling Jade’s inflated ego, I kinda hope she helps Kiera Hogan win the title off Jade. Bow Wow might even be part of that finish, where he distracts the ref and Velvet attacks Jade so Kiera can capitalize.

Good promo from FTR to relate how they felt after Final Battle, and to further call out Austin & Colten before Dynamite’s grudge match. Good win for Wardlow but of course he was going to win. He did a good job calling out Samoa Joe, Joe did a great job responding, and their match for New Year’s Smash will be some awesome stuff. I can’t be sure who wins that, it could go either way. But Joe only just got started as “The King of Television,” so it’d be a shame if that stopped now. And great promo from Vance to relate the motivation of his Heel turn. He’s obviously going to face The Dark Order one member at a time, and that can help bring out Vance’s storytelling chops.

Great pre-main-event promo, but of course it was great because Best Friends are hilarious. It’s probably why they keep getting to do stuff on Rampage. Great 8 Man Tag and I love that they played up the Battle of Trents in a similar way to the Battle of Adams when we got Page VS Cole. Great win for the Faces, and I’d love to see things split off into separate matches, but I still think Dustin and Kip face of 1v1 to name a contender to the All-Atlantic Championship. Honestly, Dustin VS Seven 1v1 would be some awesome stuff, too.

My Score: 8.8/10

The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

The fans fire up as Hobbs ends up on the tables! The fans give Sammy another beer, to SMASH it on Hobbs again! Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a LADDER! The fans are loving it, because now we’ve entered TLC territory! Sammy gets that ladder in the ring while the fans lose their minds!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

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

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

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

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

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

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

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are ready for another fight with the BCC, but for right now, they’ve got the STP! Will the #TopGuys still be FTR? Or will Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor himself prove they’re in that conversation now?

The teams sort out and Dax starts against #TAIGASTYLE. Lee and Dax tie up, Lee waistlocks and headlocks, then wrenches to hammerlock. Lee shoves Dax then claps at him, but Dax keeps it cool. Dax tags Cash, Cash runs up but Lee avoids him. The two feel things out, tie up and go around, then break the deadlock. They reset, tie up again, and Lee wrenches to spin Cash and wrangle him. Lee steps over, has La Magistrol, TWO! Lee pushes Cash around and then dances at him. Cash storms up but Lee backs off. Lee smirks at Cash then resets with him. They tie up, Lee headlocks, but Cash powers out.

Cash drops, drops, and hurdles to then ELBOW Lee down! Then arm-drag! Cash has the armlock and he slaps Lee around. Cash tags Dax, whips Lee, drop toehold and elbow drop! Fans rally up and Dax brings Lee up. Dax wrenches but Lee powers him to the corner! Tag to Shane but Dax gets away. Shane and Dax circle, talk some trash, and tie up. Dax headlocks, Shane powers up and out, but Dax RAMS him! Shane says not today! Dax runs again, RAMS again, but Shane stays up. Dax RAMS Shane again, and again, but Shane scoops! Dax slips free, waistlocks, but Shane bucks the O’Conner. Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges, but stays back to avoid hands.

The fans fire up as Dax and Shane reset, tie up, and Dax headlocks. Shane powers up and out, Dax SHOTGUNS him! Shane comes back but Dax avoids the senton! Dax wrenches, but Shane LARIATS! Shane drags Dax up, tags Lee, and STP mugs Dax. Lee throws knees, snapmares Dax and basement dropkicks! Lee drags Dax up, ROCKS hi, but Dax puts him in a corner to CHOP! And CHOP! Dax brings Lee around, wrenches, but Lee ROCKS Dax! And CHOPS him! Dax CHOPS again! And again! Lee swings, Dax ducks and picks Lee up, but Shane tags in before the atomic drop! Lee hobbles away, Dax ROCKS Shane!

Dax runs up to whip Lee but Lee reverses. Dax rebounds off buckles to CLOBBER Lee, but Shane CLOBBERS Dax! Cover, TWO! Dax survives, Shane talks trash on Cash, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Dax up, puts him in a corner, then winds up to CHOP! Dax sputters and Shane talks more trash. Shane stands Dax up, winds up, and CHOPS again! Shane keeps Dax in the corner, whips him corner to corner hard, and Dax falls back! Shane talks more trash to Cash but the ref keeps Cash back.

They clinch, go around, and end up on ropes. Shane tags in, he throws hands on Dax! Shane scoops and SLAMS Dax, then stares Cash down while Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Shane has Dax in a bearhug! Dax endures the squeeze but the fans rally up. The ref checks Dax, the hand drops once. The hand drops twice! But then Dax comes back to life! And he BITES Shane’s forehead! The ref reprimands but Shane lets Dax go. Dax back suplexes, but falls over under Shane! Shane covers, TWO! Tag to Lee, and STP gets Dax up.

Winners: FTR, by pinfall

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

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

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

 

Thunder Rosa VS Ladybird Monroe!

La Mera Mera is ranked #2 in the Women’s Division, and we know the AEW Women’s World Championship is spoken for in terms of a challenger. Will Rosa then look to solidify her spot in the TBS Championship chase?

The bell rings and Rosa circles with Monroe. They tie up, go around, and Rosa waistlocks to SLAM Monroe down. Rosa then facelocks, waistlocks, but Monroe switches. Rosa pries the hold to switch, hammerlock, and then chicken wing! Rosa wants the crossface, too, but Monroe wrenches out to hammerlock back. Monroe pulls hair, talks trash and CLUBS Rosa. Rosa gets mad now. Monroe whips, Rosa reverses and CHOPS! Monroe goes to a corner, and Rosa CHOPS her again! Rosa fires off forearms then bumps Monroe off buckles!

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

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

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

 

Six Man Tag: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn VS The Iron Savages & Jacked Jameson!

As the Bang Bang Scissor Gang looks to dominate all of AEW & ROH, they are trying a team remix! Max Caster has a rap for the occasion! “Acclaimed & The Bang Bang, we the real savages. ‘Bout to bring the fight like me against management! These guys’re so mad, they prolly see red!” Oh no, Caster loses the flow! This is a travesty! Bowens takes over to say, “SPRIIINGFIELD, MIZZOU-REEE~! The Bang Bang Scissor Gang has arrived! Scissor Me, Daddy Ass!” And he does~! Will Billy, his son Colten, and the Switchblade make a killer trio? Or will they all end up sipping the Savage Sauce?

The trios sort out and White wants to start, but so does Billy. The fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” so White says okay, Billy can start. Billy stares down Beefcake Boulder and the two circle. They tie up, Billy headlocks but Boulder powers up and out! Billy RAMS Boulder, neither falls, and Boulder shows off #TiddyCity! Billy says okay, “SUCK IT!” and eye poke! Billy then runs Boulder over! The fans fire up, Billy runs and drops an elbow, but Boulder moves! Boulder then runs Billy over! Boulder swivels hips, tags Bulk Bronson, and they get Billy up. It’s time to visit the city! But Billy turns it around and shoves Bronson into Boulder!

Billy brings Bronson over, tags Colten, and they whip, body shot, BOOT and DROPKICK! The father-son combo has the fans fired up, and Colten brings Bronson up. Colten whips Bronson to a corner as White argues with Jacked Jameson. Colten goes to a corner, finger guns with his dad, but Jameson now argues with Billy. The ref is busy breaking those two up as Colten runs in, Boulder pulls Bronson to safety! Colten tumbles up and out and to the floor! Austin and Bowens check on Colten but Bronson SMACKS Colten off the apron! Bronson puts Colten in, covers, ONE!! Bronson drags Colten up and FLAPJACKS him off buckles!

Bronson goes up the ropes to HIP DROP Colten! Tag to Jameson, he HIP DROPS Colten! Boulder tags in, he stomps around and the fans fire up. Boulder brings Colten up, to suplex high and hard! Boulder then says bang bang to mock BBSG. Boulder shakes those hips, tags Jameson, and they double whip Colten, only for Colten to BLAST Bronson! Colten DUMPS Boulder, ELBOWS Jameson, hot tag to White! White may have sniped that one, but he CHOPS Jameson down! And he gets Bronson by his hair, and CHOPS! White CHOPS Jameson, fires off JABS then CHOPS! JAB, CHOP, repeat! CHOP, CHOP, and CHOP!

Bronson runs in but White sends him into Jameson! White then CHOPS Bronson! White whips Bronson but Bronson reverses. Bronson runs up but White dumps him out hard! Jameson runs up but into an URENAGE Cover, Boulder runs in, but White moves! The SPLASH hits Jameson! Boulder freaks out, and White kicks low! Billy gets in, FAMOUSER! The fans fire up as that sends Boulder tumbling! White CHOPS Bronson, Colten CLOBBERS him out of the ring! White shrugs and gets Jameson for the BLADERUNNER!! Cover, BBSG wins!

Winners: Jay White, Colten Gunn & Billy Gunn, by pinfall

It was a rocky start but a smooth finish as the hybrid trio works out! Will this super group be untouchable all the way to the top of the mountain?

 

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

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

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

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

 

Bryan Keith VS Malakai Black!

The Bounty Hunter wants gold, but he’ll have to step into the shadows first. The House of Black has been nothing but brutal and sadistic, will Malakai add Keith to the body count?

Malakai moves around, spins through and wrenches to snapmare. Malakai headlocks but Keith slips out to wrench and wristlock again. Malakai snapmares and chinlocks but Keith wrenches out again. Malakai breaks free, tripos Keith but Keith kicks him away. Malakai storms back up but Keith trips him to cover, ONE! The two stand off and the fans rally up. Malakai and Keith reset and circle again. They tie up, Malakai ROCKS Keith, then ROCKS him again!

Malakai whips, Keith reverses but things speed up. Keith BOOTS Malakai down! Fans fire up with Keith and he storms up on Malakai. Keith ROCKS and CHOPS on repeat!

Malakai wants Mark to show mercy, but here come Buddy & Brody! Mark dodges Buddy to SMACK Brody! And then a SMACK for Buddy! Mark ducks the heel kick to UPPERCUT! Mark gets the kendo stick back, takes aim again, but then thinks of something else. He has a STEEL SPIKE! The same kind Julia Hart stabbed Mark with just a couple weeks ago!

The Professor of Professional Wrestling is looking for her path to a championship, and you do that by winning. Deeb had studied up for Kiera Hogan, but cards are subject to change. Will Deeb still pass the pop quiz? Or will she be iced out of the title chase already?

The bell rings and the two circle. Deeb and Frost tie up, and Deeb wrenches to a wristlock. Frost trips Deeb, knuckle lock covers, ONE as Deeb gets a shoulder up. Frost pushes the arm down, ONE as Deeb gets the other arm up. Frost tries again, ONE as Deeb bridges! They stand, go around, and Deeb straitjackets Frost.

Winner: Serena Deeb, by submission

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

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

 

Eddie Kingston makes his way to the ring!

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

Bryan Danielson VS Jun Akiyama!

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

Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10

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

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

In this form of Triple Threat, only two trios are legal at one time, so Action steps up to stare down Sydal. The fans rally up as the two talk some smack, and they circle. They tie up, go around, and Sydal headlocks for a takeover. Action stands up but Sydal hits another takeover. Sydal then snapmares but Action handsprings through! Fans cheer and the two go again.

Keith powers up and out, Darius RAMS him, but Keith rebounds to BOOT! Darius falls, Kassidy tags in!

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

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

Komander tags Penta before he runs in, but Dante jumps up and over! Penta runs in to SLINGBLADE! And then SLINGBLADE again! Dante staggers up, into a SUPERKICK! Action tags in to springboard, into a SUPERKICK! Private Party sends Darius into barriers! Penta tags Keith, puts Action in a corner, and GAMANGIRIS! Komander runs in, Penta is the step stool for Komander to FLYING FOREARM!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

BREAKING NEWS for Collision!

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

 

Backstage interview with The Outcasts.

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

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

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

 

The Young Bucks VS Jonny Lyons & Cappuccino Jones!

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

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

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

Winners: The Young Bucks, by pinfall

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

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

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

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

 

Tony Schiavone is back in the ring.

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

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

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

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

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

 

Skye Blue speaks.

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

 

Mariah May VS Anna Jay!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Mariah May, by pinfall

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

 

Backstage interview with Ruby Soho & Angelo Parker.

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

My Score: 8.7/10
