AEW mourns the loss of Jerry Jarrett.

 

8 Man Tag: Orange Cassidy, Billy Gunn & The Acclaimed VS Team Triple J!

Just as Freshly Squeezed, Daddy Ass, Max Caster & Anthony Bowens thought they were done with Jay Lethal, Jeff Jarrett, Sonjay Dutt & Satnam Singh, that awful quartet had to go and attack Cassidy on Rampage! Sonjay still rubs in how he stole Paul Walter Hauser’s Golden Globe, but will he lose that and this match? Or will Team Triple J’s egos be even bigger in Texas?

But of course, Platinum Max has a diss track on deck! “Yo, Jeff! I heard the news, man, that’s too bad. Your dad was a legend, but you just a douchebag! Coming in hot like a asteroid, you will never beat me like the Ass Boys. How was Valentine’s at your compound? Getting no play, it’s TNA Lockdown. There’s no point in fighting back, when we’re done with y’all, we’re gonna get the titles back.” Bowens takes the mic to say, “LAAAREDOOOO~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS~!” And he does! Fans fire up as the teams sort out, and Sonjay starts against Bowens, but then Lethal says he wants in?

Sonjay tags Lethal, he and Bowens circle, then tie up. Lethal wrenches and hammerlocks Bowens to then slap him around, but Bowens switches things around to headlock. Lethal powers out, waistlocks, but Bowens switches again. Bowens spins Lethal, snapmares, and then Oklahoma Rolls, TWO! Lethal has a leg, “WOO~!” and step through, but into a cradle! TWO, and Lethal kicks low! Lethal whips Bowens to ropes, Bowens holds those ropes and kicks Lethal down! Bowens keeps moving, LEAPFROG LEG LARIAT! “Everyone loves the Acclaimed!” Bowens drags Lethal up, tags in Caster, and The Acclaimed whip Lethal to a corner.

Bowens forearms, Lethal back elbows, Bowens forearms in again! Feed to the POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Caster drags Lethal up but Lethal CHOPS! Caster CHOPS Lethal off his feet! Lethal gets up and he RAMS Caster into the Triple J corner. Tag to Jarrett and he fires haymakers! Fans sing “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” but Jarrett tells them to shut up. Jarrett whips Caster but Caster reverses to hip toss! And arm-drag! And DROPKICK! Fans fire up and Caster air guitars, then he brings Jarrett up. Caster whips, Jarrett throws Caster down by his hair! Fans boo but Jarrett tags in Satnam!

The One in a Billion storms up, but Caster backs up. Fans fire up, but before Caster can tag in Billy, Cassidy tags himself in! The All-Atlantic Champion steps to the literally biggest guy in AEW and fans fire up. But Satnam mocks Cassidy’s height, then tags in Sonjay. Sonjay fires up and goes around Cassidy, slapping his jeans. Cassidy puts his hands up, fans fire up, and then Billy tags in! Sonjay backs away quickly, and he tags out to Jarrett! But wait, someone is on stage now! It’s the new AEW World Tag Team Champions, Austin & Colten Gunn! They tease doing scissor fingers, but then tell The Acclaimed to “SUCK IT!”

Fans boo and taunt the “ASS~ BOYS!” but Billy hammerlocks Jarrett. Jarrett elbows free but Billy puts him on the ropes. The ref counts, Billy lets off and glares at his sons. Billy runs, but Jarrett ELBOWS Billy! Jarrett runs to STRADDLE ATTACK! Jarrett struts, as do Sonjay, Lethal and Satnam. Billy runs in, Jarrett dodges and Lethal gets a cheap shot in! Billy just glares at Lethal now. Billy DECKS Lethal but Jarrett CLOBBERS Billy! Jarrett stomps Billy around, tags Lethal, then drags Billy up and whips him to ropes. Jarrett kicks low, Lethal runs in to SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Lethal stomps away on Billy while fans chant “JARRETT SUCKS!”

Lethal drops an elbow, covers, TWO! Lethal clamps on a neck wrench then shifts to a facelock. Billy fights up but Lethal CLUBS him down! Tag to Sonjay and Sonjay stomps away on Billy. Billy just glares at Sonjay now! Sonjay runs away, tags Jarrett, and Jarrett DECKS Billy! Jarrett tells The Acclaimed, “SUCK IT!” then he stomps Billy more. Fans boo but Jarrett just tags Lethal. They stand Billy up, double whip him to ropes, but Billy reverses to send Lethal away. Lethal holds ropes, Jarrett hits a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Lethal struts then CHOKES Billy! The ref reprimands, Lethal lets off, and Lethal drags Billy away.

Tag to Satnam and Satnam BLASTS the corner! Billy is isolated as Satnam brings him up. But Billy kicks low, throws hands and more kicks! Billy whips but Satnam reverses to CLOBBER Billy! The Acclaimed run in, dodge Satnam and BLAST Lethal & Jarrett! But they turn around into DOUBLE LARIATS from Satnam! But Cassidy throws off his armband, ORANGE- NO, Satnam catches the punch! Satnam TOSSES Cassidy away, and then tags in Sonjay! But Billy kicks low, HUGE FAMOUSER!! Fans fire up as Sonjay is the one all alone now! The ref argues with Sonjay to get in, but Jarrett CLOBBERS Billy with the Golden Globe!!

Bowens SUPERKICKS Jarrett! Lethal hits a LETHAL COMBINATION on Bowens! Caster BACKHANDS Lethal, then fireman’s carries, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Sonjay has his pencil! Caster dodges, ORANGE PUNCH! Caster sets Sonjay up and Bowens goes up, fans fire up for the SHIVER ME- NO, Lethal CLOBBERS Bowens! Billy clotheslines Lethal up and out! Caster still has Sonjay down, so fans fire up as Daddy Ass climbs! Only for Jarrett to shove Billy down! ORANGE PUNCH for Jarrett! Fans fire up again, Caster nods to Cassidy!

And the Ass Boys are furious! Austin & Colten stole those titles, will Caster & Bowens snatch them right back? But first, Cassidy joins in, QUADRUPLE SCISSOR FINGERS~!

 

Bryan Danielson speaks.

“The die has been cast. The dice have been rolled. Max is scared to sh*t, and I feel like gold. Because now, I am going to AEW Revolution to challenge for the AEW World Championship in an Ironman Match. And you cannot tell me for one single second there is one person who thinks MJF has more heart than me! He can’t go 60 minutes the way I can go 60 minutes! I guarantee you, he is shaking in his boots. Max, what you did tonight was the act of a scared and desperate man who knows that the boogeyman is coming to take his AEW World Championship.” The American Dragon has not been slayed, will he burn down the Devil of AEW?

 

Texas Tornado Tag: Jon Moxley & Claudio Castagnoli VS La Faccion Ingobernable!

Speaking of the American Dragon, MJF and LFI tried to take him out of action completely last week, but the Blackpool Combat Club came to his rescue! Now, the Maniac and the Swiss Superman will take on El Toro Blanco y Perro Peligroso 2v2, with no tags and no rules holding them back! Will the BCC be painting all of Laredo with the blood, sweat and tears of Rush and Preston Vance?

Rush y Vance stomp away on Moxley, fans boo but they soak it all up. Vance stands Moxley up to ROCK him. Vance runs in to clotheslines! Fans insult Rush y Vance in Spanish, but they double whip Moxley corner to corner. Vance runs in to clotheslines, Rush adds a SPLASH! Feed to the SPINEBUSTER, then Rush hits a basement dropkick!

Vance is in a corner, Claudio wedges his chair in the other. Moxley CATAPULTS Rush into barriers! Claudio sets another chair up, BULLDOG onto the chair for Vance!

Rush y Vance go back for Moxley and they mug him with haymakers and CHOPS! They RAM him into steel steps, stomp him down and dig their boots in, and Moxley is busted open! Vance swipes some of that blood and wipes it on his own chest. Moxley sits up in a daze, Rush puts him in the ring, and LFI stalk behind him. Rush clamps on a chinlock stretch, and Vance talks trash while he suffers. Vance writes “L F I” with Moxley’s blood, and then Rush stands on Moxley. LFI throw up the fists, then they bring Moxley up. Moxley throws forearms and CHOPS on them both! But Rush ROCKS Moxley right back!

LFI double whip Moxley hard to the corner, then Rush whips Vance in to clothesline! Vance sits Moxley down, Rush runs in, but he jumps to just BOOT Moxley. Rush rolls back for tranquilo! Moxley drags himself up and he TACKLES Vance! Moxley rains down fists but Rush KICKS Moxley down! Rush stomps Moxley, then sits him up for body shots. Vance drags Moxley around to dig his boot into Moxley’s face. Rush does the same on the other side, it’s a boot sandwich! Moxley endures, even as Vance shifts to have a better angle.

The LFI hit first, but it was the BCC who hit harder! Moxley & Claudio win, and- Wait! Hangman is getting mugged by Kip and his Superbad Squad!! Butcher & Blade hold Hangman in place so Kip can fire off fists! And then a BOOT through a door! Refs and The Dark Order rush in to run Kip and his guys off, but the damage has been done! Will Hangman even have his match with Kip now? Or did his night just go from Superbad to worse?

 

Jim Ross has a sit-down interview with Wardlow.

Good ol’ JR doesn’t recall “seeing anything more shocking the night you lost the TNT Championship to Samoa Joe. When you and Joe were tag team partners, I’m sure you had many private conversations. Sometimes in hindsight, you may look back and say, ‘I shouldn’t have said that.’ So in any event, here we are. What’s next for you?” Wardlow says he and Joe “did share some personal stories with our time together. The part of the story with my father I want to share here today is, from the time I can remember to the time I was eight years old, that man instilled every ounce of athleticism and drive that I have in me today.

“Unfortunately, from the time I was eight until the time I was a young adult, he was not in my life. But as a young adult, he reentered my life, and we were able to start to have some sort of a father-son relationship. As soon as that happened, I got a call from him that he had Stage 4 cancer, and didn’t have a lot of time left. Unfortunately, the next time I would see him would be as he laid in a hospital bed on hospice. I’d just started my wrestling journey, and he did make it to my first indie show. So he was able to see me wrestle, and he was so proud of me.

“And that’s all I could think of to tell him to give him any peace, was, ‘I promise you, I will be a better man, I will do right, and I’m gonna make it.’ And that was the last thing I ever said to him. I got a phone call the next morning saying he had passed. After he passed, I had never grown my beard, never grown my hair, but after seeing cancer take that all from him, I decided for the first time, I’m gonna grow my beard out, I’m gonna grow my hair out. And that’s the look that we’ve come to learn and know of Wardlow over the past few years. And Joe knew that. And Joe took that from me, my connection with my father.”

Wardlow tells Joe, “You took that from me. Now look me in the eyes, because this is the last thing you’re ever gonna see as the man you are today. Even though you’ve survived every company, every monster this business has to offer, Joe, you will not survive me!” Joe fired the first shot, will he not survive the war dog that is coming for him?

 

Mark Briscoe VS Josh Woods w/ Tony Nese, Ari Daivari & Mark Sterling!

The Sussex County Chicken is now #AllElite, but his first test is an opponent he’s known for a long time in ROH. Will Mark fly high and continue to honor the legacy of #DemBoys? Or will Woods have The Goods to ruin the ride?

The bell rings and fans rally as the two get face to face. Woods pushes Briscoe but Briscoe pushes back. They tie up, go around, and fans chant for “DEM BOYS!” Woods puts Briscoe in a corner, the ref counts, and Woods lets off. Briscoe turns things around but Woods narrowly avoids the chop! Briscoe says it was that close, and he circles with Woods again. They tie up, Woods gets a high crotch ankle pick takedown. Woods uses that to then waistlock and bring Briscoe up to wrench and clamp on an armlock. Nese & Sterling applaud but fans boo. But Briscoe fights up and he puts Woods on the ropes.

The ref counts, Briscoe lets off, but Woods avoids another chop. Woods knees low, whips Briscoe to ropes, but Briscoe ducks the super punch to CLOBBER Woods! Fans fire up while Woods falls out of the ring. Briscoe builds speed, but Sterling distracts the ref so Daivari & Nese can trip Briscoe and drag him out! They mug Briscoe while fans boo, but here come the LUCHA BROTHERS! Penta El Zero Miedo y Rey Fenix go after Daivari Dinero and the Premier Athlete with KICKS and punches! Fans fire up, Sterling is freaking out, and Briscoe is even surprised. Briscoe gets on the apron but Woods ROCKS him!

Renee Young has a sit-down interview with Adam Cole.

Renee says it is so good to see him. We’re all glad to see he’s back, to hear from him, and to see him step inside the ring again. How has he been? He’s been great, seriously. He can’t be happier to be back on the road with AEW, “there’s a little part of me that’s a little discouraged. Because obviously, I’m so close to looking at that ring and imagining getting back in there. But I’ve learned through this entire process to celebrate mini-victories, if you will.

“For example, the fact that after a few months, my right eye is able to look in the right direction and it doesn’t twitch up and down, that’s a victory. The fact that I can go throughout the day and not feel like I have to pull over or throw up because I feel nauseous, that’s a victory. And so is being back and this close to returning in the ring. So to answer your question, I am very, very happy.” Renee says that sounds like a new lease on life. So when he is able to finally get back in action, what does the next chapter look like for Adam Cole?

Cole says that’s interesting for her to say it, “Next chapter.” It feels like there are so many chapters to his story, he hasn’t really had the chance to explore things yet. But he’s sure that very, very soon, he’ll get the chance to do that. So in regards to what Cole does in AEW, he looks at the roster right now, and it has never been better. “From top to bottom, this roster is absolutely stacked. So I know, when I do come back, I need to be as prepared as humanly possible. And looking at this roster, I have a couple of ideas of who I’d love to step into the ring with.” Renee wants a sneak-peek at those ideas, but he says no, he’ll leave that just to him, and for the roster to think about.

But all Cole will say, “it’s gonna be good for All Elite Wrestling, and it’s gonna be good for Adam Cole.” Renee is so happy to see him healthy, and hopes to do more of this together finally. He hopes so, too! Cole has a little more to go on his road to recovery, but who will get the honor of “welcoming” Cole back to action?

 

MJF is here.

Fans are torn, but this is the “contractually obligated appearance” of the AEW World Champion, Maxwell Jacob Friedman. Dynamite is picture in picture as MJF swaggers his way down the ramp, amused as he sees giving him thumbs down and booing. MJF walks up to a young lady in the front row, she gives MJF a kiss on the cheek and then MJF flips off the guy sitting with her. MJF continues to ringside, teases that he’s gonna take pictures with fans, but leaves them all hanging. MJF seems to insult fans taunting him in the front row, and even splashes one guy with his own drink! MJF walks away and does a strut as he stands up on a chair.

MJF sees the signs, “Texas hates MJF” and “MJF thinks Laredo is in the RGV,” but he just shrugs that off. MJF also slaps one fan’s drink of out their hand as Dynamite goes to break!

Dynamite returns and MJF is finally in the ring, mic in hand. Fans boo and call him names, but MJF says, “No hablo Espanol. My apologies. Bryan Danielson, these people love you, man, and you have no idea how much that pisses me off. Cuz at one point in time, these people, they used to love me, man. At one point in time not too long ago, these shmucks used to be Devil worshippers. But I know these people, Bryan. These people are disgusting, fickle little monsters. So I turned my back on them before they had the opportunity to turn their backs on me, just like everybody else. But at least I’m honest about who I am, Bryan. I’m the devil, man!”

Fans tell MJF to STFU, but MJF ignores that. He says Bryan is not so honest about who he really is. “See, these people don’t love you. They love the man you portray when you walk through that curtain. Because in real-life, you’re just like all of them: a worthless sack of trash!” Fans boo but MJF says that in real-life, Bryan has taken he has been given for granted, but MJF is not here to talk about how much of a horrible human being Bryan is, though that’s not the only reason why MJF hates him. “I hate you because you have these people convinced that you’re better than me?!” Fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” because that’s true!

MJF says that’s the farthest thing from the truth! “And let me guess, you people think Bryan Danielson’s the best in the world, don’t you?” “YES!” MJF asks, “Why’s that? In your super professional opinion, why is that? Is it because he entertains you the best? Yeah? Is it because he does the coolest maneuvers and holds? Is it because he puts on five-star bangers? Little secret, guys: that’s not why we get into this business. We get in this business for one reason only, and it is to become world champion. And last time I checked, the only way you know you’re the best in the world, is if you’re the man that’s holding the AEW World Heavyweight Championship.

“And whether you guys realize it or not, that is something Bryan Danielson has NEVER been able to accomplish. Now Bryan, I’m not an idiot. On March 5th at Revolution, for one hour, I know you’re gonna give me everything you’ve got. You’re gonna put on the performance of a lifetime for these people. You are going to use every trick out of your sleeve that you picked up in Japan, in Mexico, in the UK, in Canada. And you are going to put me through the hardest match of my life. But know this: after those 60 minutes are up, after that clock strikes zero, I WILL BE VICTORIOUS!” Fans boo as they don’t believe that.

MJF says Bryan isn’t the best wrestler int he world, MJF is! And at Revolution, MJF proves it! Bryan doesn’t have the balls to do what it takes to win! That’s because he is Maxwell Jacob Friedman, and this ain’t a sing-along! SHUT YOUR MOUTHS! He’s better than you and you know it! But if you don’t wanna take MJF’s words for it, take it from a man who has known Bryan his entire career. Maybe people will listen to the man Bryan looks to as a mentor. “Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you, the Fallen Angel, Christopher Daniels!” Christopher Daniels makes his way out, but what is he doing working with MJF?

Daniels goes to the ring to join MJF and MJF tells him, “Do me a favor and tell these people the truth about Bryan Danielson inside the squared circle.” Daniels gets the mic and says, “The truth? Okay, okay, the truth. Full disclosure, Laredo, MJF paid me an obscene amount of money tonight to denigrate Bryan Danielson on national television. And Max, there was a time in my life where I would’ve happily taken this money and come out here to bury Bryan Danielson with you for hours. But that’s not the man I am today, Max, and if you want the truth, the truth is… Bryan Danielson is set to knock your dick in the dirt.”

Daniels throws the money back at MJF! Fans fire up and MJF is seething. Daniels tells MJF that he remembers that first time with Bryan in the ring. A 20-year-old Bryan Danielson hit Daniels so hard, he thought he was gonna die in that ring. And that was when Daniels knew that Bryan was going to be great! Daniels watched Bryan win the King of the Indies tournament in 2001, and that tournament directly inspired the creation of ROH as a promotion. And ROH brought REAL pro-wrestling to a fanbase that was starved for it. The same type of fans that were ecstatic when AEW opened four years ago.

Daniels says that if there wasn’t an ROH, there might not be an AEW, and there definitely wouldn’t be an MJF. MJF is getting more upset but Daniels tells him that he’s shared locker rooms with Bryan all over the world. Daniels has seen Bryan wrestler as many matches as he could handle, and Bryan was a sponge about pro-wrestling. Bryan wanted to learn everything he could, one new thing every match, and Daniels saw him do it over and over and over until he became a world champion. “Max, he knows what it takes to be a world champion. He’s on the path to becoming world champion one more time. And that’s why these people love him, and that’s why you hate him, Max.”

And not just because Bryan is going to take the one thing MJF loves more than anything else. It’s because Bryan IS what MJF wishes he could be. Bryan is the best wrestler in the world today. Not MJF! MJF is just a fraud! And Bryan will outwrestle and expose- MJF SLAPS the mic away, then he shoves Daniels! MJF says HE is the champion, that makes HIM the best! Daniels says he’s not. He’s an SOB! MJF says okay, Daniels turns to leave, but MJF turns him around! “You don’t walk away from me!” Daniels SLAPS MJF! Fans fire up and MJF cools off. To then LOW BLOW Daniels! And then clamp on the SALT OF THE EARTH FUJIWARA!!

MJF makes Daniels suffer but here comes BRYAN! Bryan runs MJF off and fans fire up again! The Fallen Angel has given the American Dragon his ringing endorsement, will the Devil of AEW suffer for all his sins?

 

The Gunns speak.

Austin rattles off criticisms, “The Gunns are boring, the Gunns are too green, the Gunns are just Ass Boys. The Gunns can’t go toe-to-toe with your favorite wrestlers. The Gunns can’t take down The Acclaimed, the Gunns will never win the AEW World Tag Team Championships.” Colten says that he and his brother have only been wrestling together for one year, with only ten televised matches, but sorry they “didn’t have to go to the indies and work for ten bucks and a handshake. And if you didn’t like the ending to last week, well, I have a little spoiler for you: This is real-life. Not every story has a happy ending. This isn’t your fairytale. And at Revolution, welcome to the Gunn Show.”

 

“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry VS Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana!

Laredo, Texas embraces the Tarzan Life, and they’re getting into the swing of things with Jungle Boy! But The Machine wants another go! Will Cage avenge his loss from back in December? Or will Jack Perry continue his quest for singles gold?

The bell rings and JB SHOTGUNS Cage into the corner! JB climbs up to rain down fists and fans count along. Cage stops it at 4 and carries JB corner to corner to RAM him into buckles! JB stumble along ropes, Cage whips him but JB holds the ropes. JB BOOTS, rolls off Cage’s back then DROPKICKS Cage out of the ring! JB builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit and Cage hits railing! JB goes back into the ring and he DIVES again! JB keeps going, and FLIES! But Cage catches him! APRON RAZOR’S EDGE!! “Who’s betta than Cage?! NOBODY!” Cage drags JB back up as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Cage has JB on the apron, goes up the ropes, and again asks, “Who betta than Cage?!” Cage deadlift SUPERPLEXES JB! Cage soaks up the heat and flexes while Nana applauds. Cage drags JB up, HEADBUTTS him back down, and has him in a corner. Cage digs his boot in, lets off as the ref counts, and then drags JB back up. Cage ROCKS JB, RAMS into him, then RAMS in again. Cage CHOPS JB, and JB staggers away before he flops to the mat. Cage storms up on JB, drags him back up, but JB CHOPS! Cage just brushes that off! JB CHOPS again, Cage flexes! JB kicks low, fires off haymakers, then whips, only for Cage to block!

Cage whips JB hard into a corner, and JB hits buckles upside-down! Cage storms up on JB, drags him up and wrenches to pump handle. Cage lifts JB for a flip, but JB slips through! Cage blocks a kick and JB falls over! Cage deadlifts JB again, but JB sunset flips! Cage stays up and drags JB up for an OVERHEAD suplex! Cage soaks up the heat, does a strut and then flexes again. JB sits up, Cage stalks him to ropes, and CHOKES him on the ropes! The ref counts, Cage lets off, and Nana SLAPS JB! The ref almost caught Nana but Nana backs away. Cage drags JB up, but JB throws body shots.

Dynamite returns to single picture as JB backs Cage down, but Cage knees low. Cage whips, pops JB up, but JB fights the bomb! JB throws elbows and haymakers, runs, but into a BOOT!

Winner: “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, by pinfall

JB is 2-0 against the Machine, and he is rolling in 2023! Will the Tarzan Life soon be golden? Wait, it can’t be…! CHRISTIAN CAGE IS BACK!? Captain Charisma walks out on stage, arm still in a sling but a big smirk on his face. JB storms up the ramp at his enemy, but into MACE!! Christian sprays JB with mace right in the face!! Fans boo and chant, “YOU SUCK!” but Christian just chuckles. And then he takes his arm out of the sling! His arm’s all better! And he uses that arm to drag JB up and wrap on a SLEEPER! “I am not done with you! You understand me? You understand me?! I am NOT done with you!” And then KILLSWITCH to the stage!!

Fans boo harder but Captain Charisma kicks dirt at JB before leaving. Will Jack Perry’s journey for gold have to take a detour through revenge?

 

Renee Young has big news!

It is official! The Gunns will have their first defense of the AEW World Tag Team Championships at AEW Revolution in a Triple Treat Tag! To determine those two other teams, there will be the traditional Revolution Tag Team Battle Royal. Then in two weeks, there will be the Casino Tag Battle Royal. The winners of both battle royal matches will then move on to Revolution. Renee is interrupted as Billy & The Acclaimed walk in. As much as Billy likes hearing Renee talk, The Acclaimed have something to say. Caster says, “Yeah, listen.”

Bowens says, “Big win tonight, but there’s a bigger issue at play, and that is that The Acclaimed were screwed out of the AEW Tag Team titles last week.” Caster adds, “That’s right.” “The Ass Boys had to cheat to beat us.” “That’s right!” “But the Acclaimed, we do not back down from a fight, which is why we’re here to announce that it is no longer a three-way, it’s gonna be a four way. Because we are invoking our rematch clause at Revolution!” “That’s right!”

“One team, two teams, three teams, fly ’em in from the Forbidden Door, it does not matter! You put them in front of The Acclaimed, and we will knock them right on their asses! And we’re gonna take home what is rightfully ours! BECAUSE EVERYONE! LOVES! THE ACCLAIMED!” “That’s right. Uncrowned champs, soon to be two-time champs, and that’s a mic drop.” The Acclaimed are upping the ante on the Ass Boys, but will this gamble only come back to bite them?

 

The Elite speak.

Well, actually, they marvel at Nick Jackson palming a basketball. But then Brandon Cutler lets them know they’re live, so Nick says this weekend, it’s the NBA All-Star Weekend, and it’s huge. Don Callis says the biggest all-stars are The Elite! Who does everyone have? Team Giannis or Team LeBron? That’s a hard choice, it’ll be super close. “Speaking of close…” AR Fox & Top Flight walk in, and Fox says he almost had Omega last week. And Top Flight did pin The Young Bucks before. So they’re thinking, for Friday, Rampage Slam Dunk, they run it back. Callis cuts Omega off and says that Fox & Flight lost, so sorry, but back of the line. The Elite’s got stuff to do. Like watch the big game!

Oh, okay, so they just like to play with balls but don’t have any of their own. OHH~! Shut up, Brandon! But Omega says fine, they wanna slander The Elite? Omega’s getting a little pissed off. He tells Callis they have this. If Fox & Flight wanna have some fun on Rampage, then they’ve got it! The Bucks agree to it, and then Matt surprises Cutler with the pass. Oh, right in the nards. But will Fox & Flight tie up the series 1-1? Or will Omega & The Bucks be looking like the champions they are and put it away in two?

 

Hangman Page VS Kip Sabian w/ Penelope Ford!

The Cowboy was busy watching Moxley and Mr. Superbad used that to jump him in the back! The Butcher & The Blade helped him do a number on Hangman, but Hangman is more pissed than hurt! Will Sabian be on the receiving end of some Buckshot here tonight?

The bell rings and Kip tips his hat to Hangman, only for Hangman to DECK him! Fans fire up, Kip goes to a corner, and Hangman throws his vest at him. Hangman runs in, but into a BOOT! Kip reels Hangman in, fisherman to OSAKA STREET CUTTER! Kip laughs, calls his shot, and CANNONBALLS Hangman in the corner! Fans boo but Kip mocks the Cowboy with some rodeo. But Hangman BOOTS Kip down! Kip flounders, Hangman storms back up and CHOPS! Fans fire up as Hangman CHOPS, whips, but Kip reverses to ROCK Hangman! Kip runs to springboard, but Hangman catches him! FALL AWAY SLAM!

Hangman kips up and fans fire up while Kip bails out to the apron. Hangman just triangle jumps but Kip runs away! Fans boo but Hangman PLANCHAS! Kip slides in, Kip fakes Hangman out, and grins while Penelope distracts Hangman. Kip baseball slide dropkicks Hangman down! Fans boo, Kip goes back to the apron, PENALTY KICK! Kip then ARABIAN PRESSES Hangman down! Fans boo but Kip pretends to put his six shooters away while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Kip drags Hangman up, puts him back in, and he stomps Hangman around. Kip drags Hangman up, HEADBUTTS him, and Hangman goes to a corner. Kip storms up but into a CHOP! Kip fires off forearms but lets off as the ref counts. Kip argues with the ref, to distract him from seeing Penelope CHOKE Hangman! The Superbad Girl slips away and Kip snapmares to a cover, ONE!! Kip sits Hangman up and into a modified KOJI KLUTCH! Hangman endures, fans rally, and Hangman pushes his way around to the ROPEBREAK! Kip thrashes, lets off, and looms over Hangman. Kip soaks up the heat while Hangman sits up.

Kip goes back to Hangman but Hangman ROCKS him! And again! Kip hits back but Hangman fires off a flurry! Hangman runs, into a victory roll DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, TWO! Kip is annoyed but he drags Hangman up. Kip throws a haymaker, then goes to the corner. Kip climbs up, but Hangman ROCKS him first! Hangman climbs up after Kip, Dynamite returns to single picture, and Kip fires body shots. Kip HEADBUTTS Hangman away, adjusts, and DIVING- NO, Hangman dodges the double stomps, to then clothesline Kip and himself out of the ring! Hangman lands on his feet! Then he drags Kip up to whip him hard into barriers!

Hangman whips Kip back the other way, into more barriers! Hangman brings Kip back around, but Penelope stands in Hangman’s way! So Hangman just whips Kip back into the barriers behind them! Fans fire up and Hangman catches his breath. Hangman drags Kip up, puts him in the ring, and Kip staggers around. Hangman POP-UP POWERBOMBS Kip! Cover, TWO! Kip survives and Penelope is relieved but Hangman keeps his focus. Hangman slashes his throat and fans fire up. Hangman drags Kip up, Alabama Lifts, but Kip kicks free! Kip torture racks, for a BURNING- NO, Hangman lands on his feet, spins Kip around and LARIATS!

Hangman Alabama Lifts, DEADEYE!! Cover, Hangman wins!

Winner: Hangman Page, by pinfall

The Cowboy shoots down Mr. Superbad, but he still seems a little rattled by that ambush backstage. But here comes the Blackpool Combat Club! Moxley leads the way for Claudio and Yuta as they walk back to ringside. Moxley gets a mic and slides into the ring with Hangman while Yuta and Claudio step in. Moxley says, “Cowboy, I know you think we got unfinished business, but we don’t. A couple o’ weeks ago, your ass got pinned. And after all our battles together, I have some respect for you. But I have zero fear for you. I know you inside and out, I know what you’re gonna do before you know what you’re gonna do. I’ve got your number.

“And there is absolutely no chance in hell, I want you to believe me, there is no chance that you will ever, ever beat me again. So let it go.” Hangman takes the mic from Moxley! Hangman says, “Look, I’m not happy with our last match’s result, and I don’t think you are either. Because after all this, the two who stood above the rest, it ends in the old ball ‘n’ chain roll-up? That’s it? That’s how this ends? I don’t think that’s how this ends between you and I. I think it ends… when two men go back in that cold, dark alley, and only one gets to come out. I think this ends when there’s only one of us left standing. I think this ends… at Revolution!”

Fans like the sound of that, and Moxley gets the mic back. “I was kinda hoping you would say that. I was kinda hoping you would wanna go down this dark, dark alley with me. And I kinda hoped that you wouldn’t have anybody that cared about you, any friends that would talk you out of it and talk you into making a smart decision. The Emo Cowboy, though, he ain’t got no friends.” But then The Dark Order makes their way out! Evil Uno has a mic, and he says, “Did I hear you correctly? Jon Moxley, maybe you’ve been at the top of the mountain for too long, but did you say that he has no friends?”

Uno isn’t sure where Moxley’s been the last two years, but the Dark Order’s had Hangman’s back through and through! But Hangman is actually upset that they’re out here? He tells them that he already told them to stay out of this, but Uno tells Hangman to get out of his face. Uno says the only reason he hasn’t done this is because Hangman requested that they didn’t. “But I’ve heard you talk, and I’ve heard you talk, and I had to come and say it to your face. Dark Order ain’t afraid of you. Evil Uno is not afraid of Jon Moxley.” Then he pie faces Moxley! Fans fire up as the BCC and Dark Order get face to face but Hangman tries to get between them.

Hangman argues with Uno but fans want to see this happen! Uno and Moxley stare down, and Moxley tells Hangman, “Cowboy, Revolution, TEXAS DEATH!!” Revolution is going to the Golden State, but the Maniac wants to go Lonestar style with Hangman! Who will survive this final showdown?

 

Backstage interview with The Jericho Appreciation Society.

Tony Schiavone is with Chris Jericho, Daniel Garcia, Sammy Guevara, Jake Hager, Matthew Menard & Angelo Parker, and notes that the problem between Hangman and Moxley has escalated. Jericho starts by saying, “You wanna talk about problems? Ricky Starks, you seem to have a problem with Chris Jericho. You keep demanding another match with The Ocho, not gonna happen. You got lucky, I can beat you any time, any place, anywhere, but y’know what, Tony? I’m not gonna do it. Because you are not at my level. No matches!” Garcia tells Starks that he’s not having a match with Jericho, but this Friday, he has a match with Garcia.

“And Ricky, I’m just so sick of hearing you complain all the time, talking about how it’s your time. It’s not, it’s the Jericho Appreciation Society’s time. But you are right about one thing, Ricky. You are absolute.” “-ly annoying!” Parker adds. And Menard adds, “Absolutely the losing one!” Hager adds, “Absolutely, I like this hat!” Garcia gets things back on track by telling Ricky to listen to him. “Last Wednesday, I beat you. This Friday, I’m not just gonna beat you, I’m gonna expose to everybody that believes in you, that you are nothing more than an absolute fraud.” The JAS has all said their piece, will the Dragonslayer beat down Ricky Starks?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Rampage Slam Dunk!

On top of Garcia VS Starks going 1v1, and on top of Dustin Rhodes getting a grudge match with Swerve Strickland, it is official! AR Fox & Top Flight get their AEW World Trios Championship rematch! Will The Elite end up in a trap game and lose the gold before Revolution? And on top of that, the AEW TBS Championship is on the line as Jade Cargill’s Open Challenge has been answered by Vertvixen! Will the undefeated streak end at 51? Or will Vert pull off the upset of the century?

 

Backstage interview with The Firm.

AEW returns as Tony Schiavone is now with Stokely Hathaway, Isiah Kassidy, Ethan Page & Matt Hardy. Stokely is dressed in all black with shades and a beret, but Tony asks why. Stokely says it’s because he wants justice! What we saw last week was Hook breaking Stokely’s arm! “How come that piece of garbage gets to walk around here and do whatever he wants to do?” Stokely wants Hook suspended, and even FIRED! Does Tony know how Stokely spent his weekend? In conference calls with Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton and Angela Davis. So hopefully, by the end of tonight, AEW management has good news for Stokely.

“LOOK AT ME, TONY!” Stokely holds up his arm in its cast. “I’MA FREAK OF NATURE!” Ethan says Stokely deserves justice, and he’s waiting on that verdict with him, but where was Stokely last week? Hardy threw a huge bash for The Firm! They had a party without Stokely? Were there ladies there? Yes! Isiah confirms, and then he moans. Stokely gets mad! “What’d I tell you about that?!” Tony hears from management that Hook has been suspended, pending an investigation. HAH! Ethan and Stokely high-five, but that’s with the bad hand! Stokely and Ethan want Tony to show some sympathy, but will Hook have none of that when he gets reinstated?

 

Triple Threat: Ruby Soho VS Toni Storm w/ Saraya VS Britt Baker w/ Jamie Hayter!

This match was meant to happen weeks ago, but now it happens at a critical moment in the war within the AEW Women’s Division! The Runaway finds herself torn between the friends from her past, and the rivals she’s made in her new home. Which side will Ruby choose? Which side will win out in the end?

Speaking of sides, a fan’s Britt Baker DMD sign gets on Saraya’s bad side. Storm takes the sign to rip it up, but then Saraya drags the fan over the railing! Saraya and Storm mug the fan, and have the spray paint ready! But Ruby makes her entrance and that gets Storm & Saraya to let off. Ruby checks on the fan and she’s okay, but now here comes The Doctor, accompanied by the AEW Women’s World Champion. The bell rings and Britt fires off on Storm! Storm shoves her back, Britt dodges the haymaker and waistlocks. Britt spins Storm but Storm dodges the clothesline, and Ruby ROCKS Britt!

Storm chicken wings Britt and tells Ruby to go after her! Ruby instead shoots around to roll Storm up! TWO, Britt SUPERKICKS Storm! Britt tells Ruby to help her, but Ruby rolls Britt! TWO! Britt kicks low, throws forearms, and whips. Ruby ducks ‘n’ whips but Britt hits a NECKBREAKER DROP! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and duel, Britt runs but Storm trips her and drags her out! Storm DECKS Britt, hurries into the ring, and she says Ruby has to choose the right side. Ruby headlocks but Storm powers out. Ruby runs Storm over and fans fire up! Things speed up, Ruby sidesteps but Storm arm-drags!

Storm kicks but Ruby blocks to kick, but Storm blocks! Storm throws the foot down, dodges Ruby’s haymaker, and HIP ATTACKS Britt off the apron! But Ruby reels Storm in for a SAIDO! Storm bails out, Saraya is there, and Hayter checks on Britt. Ruby dares someone to get in and fans fire up behind her. Storm slips in but then scurries away, and Britt runs in. Britt ripcords and ROLLING ELBOWS! Ruby falls and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Britt spells it out, but Storm throws her down by her hair! Storm snarls and spells it out, “Lo-who-sers!” Storm then BOOTS Britt down! Britt is in a corner, Storm digs her knee in, but lets off to talk trash to Hayter. Storm then snap suplexes Britt, covers, TWO! Storm is annoyed but Britt is tougher than that. Storm stomps Britt, drags her up and CHOPS her! Britt goes to ropes, Storm stalks up behind her and fires forearms! Storm trips Britt, has the legs, but Britt kicks her away. Ruby SOBATS, front kicks and ENZIGURIS! Britt fires forearms on Ruby, whips her to a corner, but Ruby goes up and catches Britt for DEADLY NIGHTSHADE!

Storm YANKS Ruby right off Britt to stomp her down! Storm sits Ruby up to CHOP! Ruby eggs her on! Fans fire up and Storm BOOTS Ruby down! But Ruby gets up to egg her on! Storm SLAPS Ruby, BOOTS her down, then drags her back up. Fans rally but Storm HEADBUTTS Ruby! Ruby staggers to ropes, but Storm is on her with uppercuts! Storm then runs to BOOT Britt in the corner! Storm digs her boot in, lets off on Britt and storms up to Ruby. Ruby kicks Storm, but Storm CHOPS Ruby! Dynamite returns to single picture as Saraya cheers Storm on. Storm CLUBS Ruby, whips her in at Britt, but Britt hits a BUCKLE SHOT!

Storm runs in but Britt dodges and runs to CLOBBER her! Fans fire up as Britt rallies and whips. Storm reverses but Britt SLINGBLADES! Britt stands Storm up, underhooks, but Storm stomps a foot! Ruby runs in, is sent at Storm, Britt hits a NECKBREAKER on Storm that makes her DDT Ruby! Cover on Storm, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Britt spells it out, “D! M! D!” Britt runs but Saraya anchors her! Storm then GERMAN SUPLEXES Britt down! Ruby KNEES Storm! Britt SUPERKICKS Ruby! Storm SHOTGUNS Britt! Britt is in a corner, Storm says kiss this! But Ruby runs in to catch Storm, STO!

Britt runs in, spins Ruby around, BUTTERFLY SLAM! Cover, Storm SUPERKICKS it apart! All three women are down and fans fire up! Hayter coaches Britt, Saraya coaches Storm, but fans duel between Britt and Ruby! Britt flounders to ropes, Ruby crawls to a corner, and Storm stands up first. Storm runs in at ruby but into an elbow! Ruby goes up, but Storm blocks Deadly Nightshade to a waistlock! Britt runs in, she rolls up Storm and causes her to GERMAN SUPLEX Ruby away! Cover on Storm, TWO!! Storm escapes and Britt is frustrated. Britt brings Storm up, ROCKS her, but Storm ROCKS Britt!

Britt runs in at Ruby, into an STO! Ruby goes up top and fans fire up, SUPER SENT- HAYMAKER! Storm takes Ruby out of the air, and then ties up the legs, TEXAS CLOVERLEAF!! Ruby endures as Storm sits deep! But Britt clamps on the RINGS OF SATURN! Ruby endures but then Saraya jumps in to BOOT Britt!! Saraya stomps away on Britt while the ref reprimands, and then Storm hits a TORNADO DDT on Hayter, to the floor!

Saraya stands Britt up, LIGHTNING SPIRAL! And then she gets the spray paint! Storm goes to the corner and sticks her hips out so that Saraya can spray paint a big L on it! Britt TAKES THE L!! Storm drags Britt up, reels her in, but Ruby THROWS Storm out onto Saraya! Roll up on Britt, Ruby wins!!

Winner: Ruby Soho, by pinfall

Ruby chose a side: HERS! And she wins out all on her own! But then Saraya gets in to SLAP Ruby! Saraya says Ruby ruined it! Ruby should be on THEIR side! Hayter gets in the ring to say no, Ruby should be on THEIR side! But Ruby shouts at them, “ENOUGH!!” Ruby just looks at the title instead. Hayter says okay, she’s up for that. The battlelines have been drawn, and the destination IS known, because it is the AEW Women’s World Championship. Will the Runaway win her way to a title fight at Revolution?


My Thoughts:

Great stuff for AEW, though I think they’re getting a bit talky again. MJF is a great talker, but his promo segments always take time to build. I do like that he brought out Christopher Daniels, and that Daniels literally threw MJF’s bribe in his face. Naturally, MJF beats up Daniels to get Heel heat, and Bryan shows up to scare MJF off and get some Face momentum. The Ironman match will still be awesome, but there has to be something “cheap and dastardly” that MJF does to win. He could easily give Bryan a point or two with blatant cheating, but it’ll be something that hurts Bryan enough that MJF gets easy points to balance it out.

Good promo from the JAS where it was clear the JAS was struggling to be the sports entertainer trash talkers in this feud. Garcia VS Starks 1v1 is going to be great stuff on Rampage, but I would think Starks wins there and goads Jericho into their rematch for Revolution. Great little bit with The Elite and Fox & Flight. I didn’t think we’d get a rematch there, but it does help keep The Elite fresh before Revolution. No idea who faces The Elite for Revolution, maybe there will be a big surprise like a NJPW or AAA team to give us a simply amazing and exciting match. Either way, I think The Elite retain through Revolution.

Great and hilarious 8 Man Tag, and while of course Austin & Colten do their best to distract Billy & The Acclaimed, I like that it didn’t cost the Face team anything. They win, we’re getting a huge AEW World Tag Team Championship match, and while The Acclaimed is great, I feel like it’d be too easy for them to get these belts back in that situation. This could be the opportunity to get another team into the tag title story and really shake things up. Honestly, I wonder if FTR is going to use this opportunity to return and get revenge on The Ass Boys while also getting the AEW titles back.

Really good full interview from Adam Cole, though it didn’t really add much from the preview last Friday. He’s still making good recovery progress, he still hasn’t said who he’s facing for the implied return match at Revolution, but it’ll still be great to see him get back in action. Wardlow’s interview promo was also really good. We got to learn a bit about his past, and why his top knot was so important to him. Wardlow VS Samoa Joe is going to be great stuff, and we can only hope this time, AEW handles Wardlow as TNT Champion better than the first time. Fans were really fired up for Wardlow before the WARJOE stuff, they can get fired up for him again now.

Awesome Texas Tornado Tag from BCC and LFI, of course Moxley bleeds but Vance also bleeding fit the story within this story of Vance’s previous battles with Moxley. I also hope they do something more with Rush and Claudio in regards to the ROH World title as ROH weekly TV is on its way back and their next PPV is March 31st (right before WrestleMania Weekend). And great tying Hangman into things, he gets jumped by Kip but then beats Kip in the match to get even. Hangman and Moxley had a really good promo to set up a Texas Deathmatch for Revolution, which is basically the Unsanctioned match idea I had but it’ll count. Dark Order stepping up despite Hangman not wanting them was an interesting detail, Dark Order VS BCC could make for some interesting stuff, too.

Really good stuff from Jungle Boy VS Brian Cage, and JB gets a great win. Christian Cage returning was quite the surprise, but we’re finally getting an end to that story since it was paused by Christian’s real injury. That match can happen at Revolution, and JB can win to then finally get at a singles title. Also, hilarious promo from The Firm where Stokely is most certainly playing up what happened to his arm just to get back at Hook since no on in The Firm can beat him. I would think we end up seeing Hook defending the FTW Championship against someone in The Firm. Maybe Matt Hardy, since The Firm likes making him do the grunt work. Plus, Hardy can test Hook in his match storytelling ability, something Hook still needs to really show us.

Great match from Mark Briscoe against Josh Woods, but what a surprise to see The Lucha Brothers go after Daivari & Nese. Also, why is Daivari hanging out with Nese & Woods more than his own faction, The Trustbusters? Either way, Lucha Bros will definitely rebuild their Tag Division rankings using Nese & Daivari, or even Nese & Woods, and could even get in on Revolution’s tag title Fatal 4 Way. Briscoe gets a great win off Woods, and he will definitely help lead ROH’s return to TV. But the obvious issue is: how to handle the ROH World Tag titles? That itself could be a major story going on as ROH TV gets going again and they build to Supercard of Honor.

And great stuff from the main event. The women main eventing was a nice move from AEW, though I am a little perplexed as to why Ruby didn’t have Willow Nightingale when Britt had Hayter and Storm had Saraya. At the same time, Ruby got a great win doing it all on her own, and while she’s still stuck in the middle of AEW OG VS “The Outsiders,” Ruby wanting the title is a nice detail, too. Revolution could also end up a Triple Threat where Hayter and Ruby have to worry about Saraya or Storm. But I’m still hoping for that Women’s Blood & Guts match, it just feels right for this AEW Women’s Division Civil War story they’re giving us.

My Score: 8.9/10

No Disqualifications: Sammy Guevara VS “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs!

Just last night on Rampage, The Spanish God called out the Don Callis Family, and then got jumped by the Don Callis Family! Callis and the rest of the family has been banned from ringside, as has Chris Jericho, this must be settled between Sammy and Hobbs! Will there be anything left of Sammy to return home to his wife and daughter? Or will The Book of Hobbs call for no mercy and no remains?

The moment Hobbs hops off the corner, Sammy JUMP KNEES! The bell rings, Sammy runs up to JUMP KNEE again! Hobbs staggers around, but he catches Sammy to TOSS him to a corner!

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?

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?

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?

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?

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! Deeb says, “When The Professor wrestles, the lights don’t turn out. When The Professor wrestles, the picture doesn’t go black ‘n’ white.

“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. Bryan gets around, they still look for control, and then knuckle lock. They keep going around, then clinch, then Bryan waistlocks. Jun wrenches but Bryan grabs a leg. Bryan waistlocks, the fans duel, and Jun spins to get the arm. Bryan puts Jun on ropes, the ref counts, and Bryan lets off slowly. Bryan pats Jun on the shoulders then backs away.

Bryan powers up and out but Jun runs him over! Things keep going, Jun runs Bryan over! Bryan trips Jun, turns him over, and hooks up the legs. The fans rally as Bryan grabs at the arms.

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. Sydal tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Action handsprings through again! Action dusts himself off, but Sydal runs up. Action wrenches, CHOPS, and then knuckle locks to go up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAG!

They double whip Sydal, but Sydal KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS! Fans fire up with Sydal and he gets a “SHOTS! SHOTS! SHOTS!” chant going. Sydal KICKS Darius’ leg over an dover, but Darius catches him to a pump-handle GUTBUSTER! Then GAMANGIRI! Sydal flounders away, Bryan Keith tags in! Keith runs up but Darius headlocks. 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 elbows back, then SUPERKICKS!

Dante flounders away, Komander jumps up top, and Komander tightrope walks to ARABIAN PRESS ARM-DRAG! Then a DROPKICK! The fans fire up as Komander covers, TWO! 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. Quen runs in at the corner, Dante slips out to the apron and Quen hits buckles. Dante then goes up and around to GAMANGIRI!

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!!

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! QUEENSLAYER!!

Anna hops on as a backpack, but Mariah RAMS her into buckles! Mariah is free, and she puts Anna up top. Mariah DOUBLE CHOPS, then gets some space. Mariah runs up to STRATUSPHERE! Anna flounders away and Mariah shouts out Storm! Mariah runs up, but the hip attack misses! Anna runs up to kick, dragon sleeper, and BACKSTABBER! Cover, TWO?!? Mariah survives and Anna grows frustrated! The fans rally as Anna sits Mariah up, into the QUEEN- NO, Mariah blocks the sleeper! Anna fights through to have the QUEENSLAYER! Mariah flails, reaches out, but she BITES Anna’s arm!!

The ref reprimands but Mariah is free all the same! Fireman’s carry, MAYDAY DRIVER!! Cover, Mariah wins!

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
