Andrew’s IMPACT No Surrender Results & Match Ratings: 2.24.2023

So even with a mediocre build, does the PPV turn out to be a night to remember?

Published

on

So after probably the worst build in the last 5 years that D’Amore has been at the top of the company. The wrestling on the shows were more mediocre than good, the stories have been uninteresting or just obvious filler, and I can’t really say anything has been interesting after Hard to Kill.

With that, I expect nothing from this show since the build doesn’t really convince me otherwise. And I’m not looking forward to a wasted segment for talking. So here’s my picks:

  1. Gisele Shaw vs Deonna Purrazzo: Gisele wins – because they need to start building new faces in the Women’s division.
  2. Jonathan Gresham vs Speedball: Gresham wins – because he’s not gonna lose again, especially not while Bailey is in a rebuilding arc.
  3. Kaz vs Kon: Kaz wins – because Kon sucks
  4. Knockouts Tags: Death Dollz vs The Hex – Hex win – because who cares, the Knockouts tag division has been awful since the IIconics left.
  5. Digital Media Championship: Moose vs Joe Hendry – Moose wins – because I picked Hendry last time and I feel dirty. I don’t really see Hendry losing but I like Moose too much to pick against him twice.
  6. Maclin vs Myers vs Heath vs PCO: Maclin wins – because its about damn time he got a legit shot at the belt. GIVE THE MAN HIS DAMN TITLE SHOT!
  7. Time Machine vs Bullet Club: The Fans win – Okay that’s a cop out, I love KENTA and I love MCMG…but I’m probably leaning towards Time Machine because of bias.
  8. Knockouts Title: Mickie vs Masha – Mickie wins – While I hate Masha losing her third title shot, they’re making too big of a deal about Jordynne’s rematch to have Mickie drop it.
  9. World Title: Josh Alexander vs Rich Swann: Josh wins – Maclin versus Alexander plays more in my head since Maclin has already beat Swann decisively and a first defense just to potentially drop it or wasting Maclin’s first real shot…sounds stupid.

 

Ratings:

  • Gisele Shaw w/Jai Vidal vs Deonna Purrazzo: Gisele wins via Denouement – ** 1/2
  • Jonathan Gresham vs Speedball Mike Bailey: Gresham wins via Laced Cradle – *** 3/4
  • Frankie Kazarian vs Kon w/The Design: Kaz wins via Slingshot Cutter – ** 3/4
  • Knockouts Tag Titles: Death Dollz (Taya & JesSICKa w/Rosemary) (c) vs The Hex (Marti Belle & Allysin Kay): Death Dollz retains via SICKishi Driver – ** 1/2
  • dotCOMBAT Match: Digital Media Championship: Joe Hendry (c) vs Moose: Hendry wins via Cradle with Tights – *** 1/2
  • Number 1 Contender Match: Steve Maclin vs Brian Myers vs PCO vs Heath: Maclin wins via K.I.A. – *** 1/4
  • Time Machine (Kushida, Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) vs Bullet Club (KENTA, Chris Bey & Ace Austin): Bullet Club wins via Backslide – **** 1/4
  • Knockouts Championship: Mickie James (c) vs Masha Slamovich: Mickie retains via Counter Cradle – ***
  • Impact World Championship: Josh Alexander (c) vs Rich Swann: Josh retains via C4 Spike – ****

 

Results:

Gisele Shaw w/Jai Vidal vs Deonna Purrazzo

Early back and forth with Deonna pulling off a few more athletic moves and less mat wrestling. Gisele does manage to catch Deonna in the ring skirt and then take it to Deonna for quite a long stretch of this match. Deonna does have quick moments where she turns the tide when Gisele takes too long posturing. Fujiawara attempt, but Gisele gets out, Gisele tries a Queen’s Gambit for the rub ins, but Deonna counters.

Deonna rocks Gisele, sets things up for a win but Jai hits the apron and distracts the referee while Savannah Evans slides in and hits the Full Nelson Bomb on Deonna. Gisele hits the Denouement for the win! And Savannah celebrates with Jai and Gisele.

I’m not mad at this. Gisele gets a solid win on paper, but wins via heel tactics while putting together her own little stable. 

Jonathan Gresham vs Speedball Mike Bailey

Now this is the main reason I’m watching the Countdown. Crazy that this was put on YouTube for free.

Bailey chooses to lock up with Gresham to start with, retreat to the ropes, a few strike misses takes us to a little tie up into the ropes again. Rope run, Shoulder Tackle from Gresham just pauses Bailey and he throws a big Round Kick to Gresham’s chest. Back and forth strikes, with an interesting wrinkle from Gresham as he chops the left leg instead of just the upper body shots.

Rapid Fire kicks, sending Gresham out, Bailey follows with the Triangle Moonsault, but he’s been selling the dinged up leg with ever move. Gresham has been absorbing a lot of kicks with Bailey selling it and Gresham trying to fight through. Gresham steps into the left kicks and doesn’t really budge. A few spots where he sells the legs after each kick, tries the Standing Moonsault but Gresham moves. Rope Run Springboard Frankensteiner from Gresham, he starts laying into the damaged leg and then ties him up in a kneeling Figure Four while raining down some strikes.

Big haymakers miss, strikes miss, Suplexes get flipped out of, Moonsaults get dodged; but Gresham connects with a Rolling Elbow as they both drop but no cover is started. They get up by 9 and Fighting Spirit spot. Bailey tries to run for the Handspring Back Elbow but his leg gives, Gresham almost misses the Springboard Moonsault but gets enough, Bailey powders, eats a Dive, then pops up for a big Asai Moonsault. Tornado Kick attempt but the leg gives out, Sliding D from Gresham, 2 count. Exchanges, Gresham eats a big strike, Bailey fights through the pain, Tornado Kick connects! Ultima Weapon – misses! Gresham jumps on him, forward Cradle with a leg lace for the win!

For a match with no story really, it wasn’t bad at all. Not as good as their tag match last night, but definitely solid enough to make a future encounter sound spicy.

Frankie Kazarian vs Kon w/The Design

Kon tries to take it to Kaz quickly, but Kaz catches him with a flurry of offense. Should blocks, a few rope assisted moves and a big lariat, as Kon lands on his feet. Kaz tries to continue the offense, tries to get Kon back in the ring and his get bounces off the outside ropes and levels Kaz. A few big overhand ham hocks, a single armed trash bag slam; then a nerve hold really keeps Kaz looking like he’s in trouble.

Frankie tries to pull himself up with the ropes and use the momentum for some strikes, but Kon just shakes it off and flings Kaz out of the ring. Kon slides in Kaz, Kon tries to motion to Deaner, but the small delay costs him. Haymakers from Frankie, then he gets Kon for feed for the Guillotine Leg Drop. While Kon is face down, Kaz hits the Springboard Guillotine to send Kon reeling. The crowd gets behind Frankie, he looks for a dive, but Kon recovers and levels Kaz. Picks him up for a Power Slam, Frankie slips it for the Scorpion Death Drop and a near fall. Frustration starts to get to Kaz as he just wails on him while trying to get him in a Chicken Wing, but it’s an exercise in futility. Kon drops Frankie, goes to the top rope for a Diving Headbutt, but misses! La Magistral, only for 2, but he finally gets him into a Chicken Wing. Angels hits the apron, Kaz tries to take out Angels, Callihan grabs a chair, thinks its Kaz but Kaz turns it around and Callihan cracks Kon in the head with the chair. Slingshot Cutter from Kaz for the 1-2-3.

Knockouts Tag Titles: Death Dollz (Taya & JesSICKa w/Rosemary) (c) vs The Hex (Marti Belle & Allysin Kay)

Allysin and Taya start off to continue what was started yesterday, if you want to call it that. Quick tag to Marti, some tandem offense for an early near fall, but Taya turns things around on Marti. Tag in JesSICKa, her version of the Flip, Flop and Fly…as she drops Marti and Allysin. Jess hits the ropes and Allysin trips her up.

I mean I’ll say it, for everyone who loves thicc girls, this is definitely a match for you. That’s not just shallow commentary either since 3 of the four women play up their “assets” well and often during spots in the match. Stink Faces, Hip Attacks with booty shaking punctuation – THICC.

Now that I can focus beyond the thiccness, Marti starts taunting JesSICKa’s heavy metal persona, and that allows Jess to do her best Luigi from Smash Bros impression and a Jumping Headbutt clocks Marti and causes the stereo tags. Taya starts showcasing some nice wrestling, ties up Allysin and hits the tied up Curb Stomp for a 2. Hex tries a tandem move, but Taya counters them both. Death by Kay catches Taya after she fought off both, but only two. Corner punches turns into a Running Powerbomb from Taya. Marti sneaks in the tag, Jess tags in, and its just a signature spam spot. Hex Marks the Spot attempt but JesSICKa breaks it up with a POUNCE. Head Kick plus SICKishi Driver equals Death Dollz retain.

dotCOMBAT Match: Digital Media Championship: Joe Hendry (c) vs Moose

Joe Hendry comes out first because he’s Joe, so no real shock. But once Moose comes down, its obvious why Joe came out first because Moose attacks him before the bell. Solid brawling and an occasional chair early on spills outside and then Moose slows down Hendry’s attempts with a huge Uranage through the time keeper’s table.

Moose flips off Hendry and Hendry adds comedy with the Sega Dreamcast and says “No Screw You!” and flips open the disc lid of the Dreamcast. Then Hendry finds a toy car, tries to crash it into Moose, but it does nothing. Moose kicks it away allowing Hendry to throw Moose around a little. Hendry finds box, and now a bigger remote control car!

Propped in the corner Moose is standing there, he wants to drive the car in, but the toy doesn’t work. So Hendry calls an audible and just picks up the RC Car and throws it at Moose’s nuts. Hendry is adding really good comedy in spots without being TOO stupid. Hendry tries to go after Moose, Moose moves and Hendry hits a lodged chair from earlier, then a GO TO HELL for 2!

Black Bag is found! Is it Legos? No it’s Keyboard Keycaps! Uranage no, Standing Ovation No, Uranage finally connects but not on the keys. Moose goes up top, Hendry scoops some caps and throws them to distract Moose, then follows him up, Superplex into the Keycaps for 2! Hendry grabs a VR headset! Moose starts dancing and they show on the tron that he thinks he’s at a club, then it switches to the Dancing Moose video! Moose gets angry, but gets caught by Hendry with a Cutter into the caps for 2! Low Blow from Moose, Lights Out attempt, Head and Arm Cradle for 2, Cradle counter with tights for Moose but Hendry rolls through and returns the favor of tight pulling cradle for the win!

Now I wanted Moose to win, but of course I’m not mad about Joe. A bunch of good comedy spots and solid wrestling all together. 

Oh now its time for that stupid concept of a “Live Busted Open” episode. I think I may go take a dump, walk my non-existent dog, or maybe I’ll just start learning a new language since that would be time better spent than whatever is going to happen here.

Bully brings up the NWO documentary with Nash having to do it with Hall. He’s trying to come off sincere, but we all know with Bully…he’s gonna turn this at some point. Using Nash and Hall for potential heat, is cheap. It sounds like there’s an “End this now chant starting”. Bully throws coffee in Dreamer’s face after the fake sincerity was rejected by Dreamer. So yeah…at least something finally happened. God this was a waste of time. This may be the worst non-wrestling segment of any PPV in the last few years. 

At least that pile of shit is over and we have the upper half of the card left. So it can only get better from here. 

Number 1 Contender Match: Steve Maclin vs Brian Myers vs PCO vs Heath

Hopefully this can resurrect the energy of the show after that Busted Open pile of crap. You don’t put promo battles in the middle of a PPV, especially obvious garbage.

Everyone gangs up on PCO; PCO fires out of the onslaught and after punching everyone, he throws himself at Maclin so they both wipe out. Myers and Heath have a small back and forth in the ring while Maclin and PCO try to stay a little active. Heath pulls off a Senton from apron, which isn’t his usual thing. Tries to slid Maclin in to get a flash Wake Up Call, but Myers pulls him out. Maclin hits the dive and we see PCO take the control back.

Myers manages to dump PCO off the apron, Maclin sees the opportunity and helps Myers backdrop PCO. Then they shove PCO under the ring. Heath tries something, but Maclin and Myers continue their allegiance, so Heath has no chance in a 2v1 for now. Heath tries to fight them off, knocks out Myers but Maclin stops Heath with a Backbreaker and a few near falls. Heath dumps out Maclin, and before he can collect himself Myers flies in with a Knee and then a Flatliner. Myers poses and PCO emerges from under the ring.

PCO takes out Myers, Heath and Maclin fight, Maclin eats a Wake Up Call but powders to the apron and eats a Deanimator from PCO. Cradle attempt into a Rope Run Spear from Myers for 2! Myers looking Roster Cut, but PCO says no! Scorpion Death Drop into a PCO-Sault! Eddie hits the ring with a shovel and starts beating the hell out of PCO. Heath slides in, Wake Up Call on Myers, but before he can pin Myers, Maclin slides in and hits K.I.A! MACLIN WINS!

Trey’s music hits and why the hell is he here? We already heard useless talking. I can’t stand Trey Miguel, he’s seriously a garbage wrestler. Maybe PCO can beat the piss out of him. OH GOOD! PCO Chokeslams him on the apron and takes his head off with a lariat! GOOD! 

Time Machine (Kushida, Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) vs Bullet Club (KENTA, Chris Bey & Ace Austin)

KENTA and Kushida start things off, while KENTA plays the heel game of using the ropes and makes space. KENTA tries to lull Kushida with the opening pace, and then things speed up all of a sudden. Kushida tries for a Flying Armbar, but KENTA gets out of it pretty easily. They get space, Kushida stays in and allows KENTA to tag in Bey.

As the action just starts between Bey and Kushida, Shelley slides in for some of the patented MCMG and Time Splitters tandem attacks. Shelley takes a real tag, then Bey finally gets his footing back to tag in Ace. So Sabin still needs to come in, but this is very paint by numbers Japanese style 6 man. There’s the Sabin tag and a Double Dropkick keeps Ace looking for an opening. Single Crab, Facelock, Sliding Dropkick Time Machine action! Bey eats a double PK to his arms, KENTA gets tripped and crotched on the post and then Sliding Dropkick into the face. Time Machine keeping the game fast and in their advantage. Figure Four headlock into a Reverse Figure Four, but Ace is close to the ropes.

Finally the Bullet Club starts their comeback, Fosbury Flop from Ace, Tope con 2 Sweet from Bey and KENTA acts like he’s gonna dive, but does more of a comedy moment where he just walks through the ropes and kicks Kushida. Dual Back Rakes, and Round Kicks from KENTA, as Kushida then gets Rocket Launched into KENTA’s Yakuza Kick! Near fall, but KENTA is vibing with the Two Sweet chant. Kushida catches KENTA, tries to restrain the tag but a Pele Kick allows Kushida the tag. Locomotion offense, Ace and Bey are in, Sabin is mostly doing the work himself but then Shelley comes in, Field Goal Dive onto KENTA, Shelley and Kushida go after each other member and Time Machine back on top!

Triad of corner moves on Bey, followed by the running kick to the back of the head, and then the Missile Dropkick Flatliner from the guns, but only 2. Malfunctions for Time Machine, Sabin kicks Shelley, then wipes out Kushida, KENTA Yakuza Kick into Hesitation Drop Kick, Double Stomp…only 2! Go 2 Sleep attempt, Sabin slips it, KENTA reverses Sabin, Sabin reverses back, Brainbuster. Triangle Kick + TKO on Sabin from Ace & Bey but only for 2! 1-2-Sweet attempt, but Sabin suplexes Bey, Tornado DDT on Ace, Kushida gets tagged and starts lighting up Ace. Backhandspring Elbow from Kushida, Hoverboard Lock but no! Signature spams with all 6 men!

High Speed Dirt with the Cartwheel Dropkick variation from Time Machine has Ace in a bad way. Stereo Yakuza with a Shotei! Outatime first, then Skull and – NO! Bey blocks Shelley and Ace hits the backslide on Sabin for the surprise 3 count!

Knockouts Championship: Mickie James (c) vs Masha Slamovich

Early on there’s a lot of World of Sport chain wrestling. Mickie has wrist control, refuses to let go and it’s roll counters and Arm Wringers, which is smart from Mickie since the whole tap out narrative lead Masha to choke out Mickie a few weeks ago on IMPACT. Mickie tries for the Mick-DT too damn early and Masha Stun Guns her and now starts her full mount fury.

Masha ragdolls Mickie, and then starts licking her face like Mickie likes to and Mickie is the queen of the French Kiss cause she just bites down and counters Masha by biting her tongue. Masha tries to lock in the Kimura afterward, but Mickie rolls it over into a pinfall to force Masha to break the hold. Masha stays aggressive, but Mickie has her flashes of offense. Mickie in the corner, Masha charges, Headscissors counter, Sole Butt, but then Masha launches herself off the ropes to send Mickie spilling out. Masha follows with the Dive and connects enough with Mickie to not look bad.

Goading Mickie just fires her up and we get a strike exchange that leads to Mickie hitting a Neckbreaker to get her a small opening. Sole Butt, Running Forearm, Flapjack and a Kip Up! Classic Mickie offense leads to the potential Thesz Press…but Masha catches her and follows up the corner. They start brawling on the top, Mickie gets the best of things, Avalanche Thesz Press for a VERY close 2. Mick-DT nope, Spinning Backfist from Masha but Mickie ducks it, Mick Kick for 2! Mick-DT but Masha grabs her into a Reverse Piledriver for a near fall!

Buzzsaw Kick attempt from Masha, Mickie catches the leg and spins into a Single Leg Crab and Masha gets to the ropes. Rear Naked Choke out of nowhere, Mickie tries to use the ropes but they get caught. Ref does the 5 count but Masha is relentless, breaking it long enough to not get disqualified and then going back to it for a 4 count. Mickie retreats to the corner, Masha with back to back Yakuza Kicks, Mickie dodges and Masha is perched. Masha tries the Monkey Flip but Mickie Cradles down and turns it into a pinfall! That’s a somewhat unique way to get the Cradle win.

Impact World Championship: Josh Alexander (c) vs Rich Swann

This start at a very deliberate pace, neither wants to make any crazy moves early. So its mostly just a little bit of Josh’s mat based style and Swann trying to add the Cruiserweight flair to his ways out of situations.

The first what feels like 8 minutes is still a lot of “anything you can do I can do better”. They dodge one another similarly and both have moments where they pull a punch just to jaw at the other and make a point. So again, the deliberate pace is expected since Josh has made a habit of 20+ minute matches. But it needs to start picking up soon, every match doesn’t need to be a 25+ minute current era NJPW style match.

The intensity does start to pick up as Josh just throws Rich in the air off a rope run, then feeds into the corner and rolls through into a big German Suplex, not quite a Chaos Theory, but in that kind of vein. Honestly, a lot of solid back and forth work, just too damn slow right now. And on a show where no titles have changed hands, I can’t say this is suspending disbelief.

Swann does have a great Corkscrew Senton to the floor after they were brawling a bit, but I have had no reason to click into this match. Rolling Thunder from Swann for 2, of course. Swann tries to set up the Phoenix Splash, Josh rolls further away, forcing Swann to come get him. Josh takes the opportunity to start pulling off some German Suplexes, then that stops, they find themselves in the corner, Super German attempt, but Rich flips out of it, Hook Kick to the face, Poison Rana, only a near fall. Josh counters a Rana with the Ankle Lock but Rich rolls forward and sends him into the corner.

Poison Rana attempt again, but blocked, Rainmaker attempt, Swann kicks Josh, Falcon Arrow, and only a near fall. Counters, rolls, Backslide into a C4 Spike from Josh. Josh takes a second to recover, tries to drape an arm over and Rich rolls away. Josh tries to collect him, Rich grabs the bottom rope and refuses to roll in. So Josh rips him off the ropes and just slams him down onto the apron.

C4 Spike again, Swann flips up through, grabs onto Josh and starts to light him up with kicks, Phoenix Splash – and Josh kicks out.  Swann crashes and burns on a second Phoenix Splash attempt and Josh locks in the Grapevine Ankle Lock. Swann manages to stand up and fight through, but Josh torques again and won’t let go, Swann stands up again and peppers Josh enough to knock the headgear off. Strike exchange, rope run, double ducks, Lethal Injection from Swann for 2! Hesitation Kick from Swann, Lethal Injection again but no! Jumping Tombstone from Josh into a C4 Spike and he retains!

 

Overall Score: 7/10

So I mean I’m glad I watched the Countdown because holy crap was the Busted Open segment so bad it ruined this show at the halfway point. The main event in vacuum might be better than I gave it credit for, but honestly the way the card built I had no belief in Swann winning and it started off a bit too slow for my liking. Matches that were supposed to pay off definitely did. Bullet Club versus Time Machine was great, Gresham vs Bailey was awesome and the Hendry vs Moose match was great entertainment. So none of the wrestling matches were horrible, just that worthless Bully Ray segment almost tanked the entire PPV.

If you remove that stupid segment and slot in the Gresham versus Bailey match, this would’ve had better momentum going into a slow burn main event; and I would definitely rate it higher. Holy crap did I hate that Busted Open segment, and not for “heat reasons” it was just soo cliché, paint by numbers heel garbage it felt like it was written by a 10 year old. Also one thing I’ve made mention of in the past few years I’ll say again here, IMPACT runs too many of the same finishes on one card. If you count the Coutdown, there were 9 matches, 4 of which ended with some kind of Cradle ‘non-finishing move’ flash pin. Stop that. One or two is fine, but when nearly half the show is Cradles…that’s pretty re-goddamned-diculous.

Still a decent enough show, definitely better than the last month of TV built up for it. But I really don’t wanna see anymore of Dreamer and Bully…its just pathetic.

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?

The bell rings and the fans rally as the three stare down. The fans cheer for “CERO! MIEDO!” and Penta reminds Dante that they still owe each other. So listen! “CERO!

Keith brings Dante up and into the ring.

Penta chicken wings Keith! Dante WRECKS Keith with a dropkick! But then Penta grabs Dante to spin him around on the apron, and KICK him back into the ring! The fans fire up with “CERO!

Collision returns to single picture as Penta CHOPS Dante! Dante CHOPS Penta! Then Dante CHOPS Keith! Keith CHOPS Dante and Penta!

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. Garcia grabs at Roddy for a clinch, pushes him around and turns him, then slips to a headlock! The fans cheer this technical exchange as Roddy pries at the hold. Roddy pops out the back to headlock and hit the takeover. Garcia headscissors, Roddy moves around, and Roddy turns Garcia over. Roddy then ties the legs up, and he smacks Garcia on the head.

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

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

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

Garcia swings on Christian but Christian scurries away, and then Cage CLOBBERS Garcia! Cage tags Roddy and Roddy drags Garcia up to CHOP him in a corner. And CHOP again! Roddy brings Garcia around, tags in Luchasaurus, and they mug Garcia. Luchasaurus scoops to SNAKE EYES Garcia, then runs to CLOBBER him!

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
