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.”

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!

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

When Callis looks at Tommy, just 23 years old, the blood of the original Dynamite Kid in his veins, Callis says Tommy has everything he is looking for.

In fact, Callis was thinking on this back. He remembered his mentor, Bad News Allen, was also a mentor to Dynamite Kid. Now, Callis can be Tommy’s mentor.

Juice Robinson & The Gunns are here, and these #CollisionCowboys are looking to keep up their momentum as AEW heads for Wembley. Will the Unified World Trios Champions be more than ready to go All In?

Winners: The Bang Bang Gang, by pinfall

Bullet Club Gold made quick work of this match, and then Austin gets a mic. He hands that to Colten and Colten says, “Guns up for my Calgary Gold Members~! Alright, the good news is, you got to see the Bang Bang Gang, the best trios champions in the world! The bad news, last week, that turtleneck douchebag, Christian, hurt Jay White. But it’s okay, because as a quarter of the Trios Champions,” Juice can now officially BE a champion! Juice says well, he hates to say they were right but they were right. Tony Khan should’ve anointed Juice when he was told to. Now he has no choice! So with Jay White on the bench, you are lookin’ at THE A E W Unified Trios Champions!

But then someone says hold on, hold on. Christopher Daniels is here, and he doesn’t wanna make the bad news worse, but the thing is… When a team member gets hurt, they cannot allow a substitute. The fans are upset but Daniels says he must STRIP the Bang Bang Gang of those titles! Bullet Club Gold is mad, they thought Daniels was cool! But wait, here comes The Patriarchy… Christian Cage leads Mother Shayna, his “Prodigy Son” Nick Wayne, and Killswitch-Luchasaurus out. Christian tells Calgary to sit down and shut their mouths while he conducts business. Now, Daniels, that is the right call by stripping the Bang Bang Gang.

Now make another right call and anoint The Patriarchy the NEW champions right here and right now! The fans boo that even more! Daniels tells Christian to hold on. Tony Khan is not gonna like that idea any better. But here’s an idea Daniels has that TK is sure to love. Let’s have a Trios Championship match of The Bang Bang Gang VS The Patriarchy, the winners become THE Unified Trios Champions! Austin says let’s make it even easier! Let’s just do it here and now in Calgary! And if Christian ain’t down with that, they’ve got two words for him! GUNS UP!

Christian asks if Bang Bang Gang really wants to do this here and now. YES! Well, then that depends on if the fans want it. The fans cheer “YES! YES! YES!” Well of course they do, they are so desperate to see a championship since The Flames will never get one. That said, the Patriarchy ARE the next champions, BUT they aren’t tarnishing their victory by having it in Calgary. See you down the road, Bang Bang Gang. Captain Charisma is crafty, when and where will he and his “sons” step up to the challenge?

 

The House of Black speaks.

Malakai says, “Writing history is a delicate thing, Arlington, Texas. Because next week, you will be witness when The House of Black starts building what will be the foundation of Wembley.” Brody King barks, but what could they mean by that?

 

AEW shares Jeff Jarrett’s reunion with Martha & Oje Hart.

Never in Double J’s wildest dreams could he have imagined being in Calgary for his friend. After Wednesday Night Dynamite, the world now knows how special Owen Hart was as not just a wrestler but as a man. Martha is so happy that AEW has been able to honor Owen. Owen would be so happy to see this tribute. Oje says it was here in the Stampede Park that he and Jarrett met over 25 years ago. He’s never felt closer to his dad than doing these events.

Jarrett may not have won this year’s Owen Hart Cup, but can he make sure next year’s is even bigger and better?

That was almost a knockout victory there! That’s how strong Roddy is, but will he prove he’s the strongest when he takes on Mark Briscoe? Speaking of…

Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now the fine gentlemen in the AEW front office blessed me with a week off. Thank you very much, folks. But ain’t no weeks off around here, baby! Ain’t no days off around here! This is Sandy Bah God Fork, Delaware. We dem boys, baby! Ain’t no days off! I’ve been in this ring for hours now, bustin’ my ass, gettin’ my lungs right. Cuz in just a matter of a couple weeks, I got Blood & Guts comin’ up, Team AEW VS The Elite. Blood & Guts! The Elite! I think y’all’re a little over dressed for Blood & Guts. You might get some blood or your guts on your suits. I’m a chicken farmer, baby! Blood & Guts is what I do! That’s my currency, baby! Blood, guts, ‘n’ chicken *hit!”

Mark says The Elite can’t get dirty, they can’t get down with him! And not only that, but just earlier on this very evening, he just found out, two nights later, after Nashville, Tennessee, Blood & Guts, it’ll be Mark Briscoe VS Roderick Strong in Dallas, Texas, for the ROH World title. Roddy, you a former world champion yourself, and they’ve done this dance many times. But hey, Mark is a bit wiser. He only had two kids back then. Look at the salt in his pepper. See that wisdom? But he also knows “OC,” Orange Cassidy, and Kyle O’Reilly are gonna do their thing taking out Bennett & Taven. “Roddy, in Texas, yo ass is MINE!”

 

Program loading.

“Holo.grm” is coming to AEW, but just who is he? We find out, next week!

 

Stokely Hathaway & Kris Statlander talk backstage.

Big Stoke appreciates what Stat did last Wednesday night. Kris says that was divine. Stoke played the gifs over and over again. Lexy Nair walks over to ask them about that moment they got involved with Willow Nightingale’s match. What were their intentions? Their intentions? C’mon, Lexy, you know Stokely’s a hater and Kris is petty, so there was no way they were gonna let Willow get away with what she did to them. Stokely tells Willow that he hoped Kris had knocked some sense into her, but it seems he’s talking to someone whose favorite color is the number three.

Stoke will out and say it! Willow is the biggest con artist in AEW history! Every week, Willow walks out here to preach positivity and that smiling will make everything work out. Well, Willow, how has everything worked out for you? Stoke doesn’t think it’s gone well at all. Truth be told, everything Willow has gotten this year has been because of Stoke & Kris. There is an old saying: “I’ve brought you into this world and I can take you out.” Kris says this will never end for Willow. Kris & Stoke storm off, but what more can they possibly do to the Babe with the Power now?

Backstage interview with Deonna Purrazzo.

Lexy Nair is with The Virtuosa and brings up her attack on Thunder Rosa and Rachael Ellering last night on Rampage. Deonna promised that wherever Rosa went, she would follow. Well, that’s not all that she promised. She also promised to burn AEW down to recreate it in her own image, and bring about The Age of The Virtuosa. If that means rearranging Rosa’s anatomy, that is par for the course. Speaking of, donde es La Mera Mera? Rosa steps right in! Rosa says she spoke to her therapist, because it has really bothered her. She is just sick and tired of all this! The running away, the hide ‘n’ seek, everything!

But the one thing that was clear to Rosa, is that she has to wait until the bell rings so that she can beat Deonna straight. Oh, is that what Rosa thinks will happen? She wants a bell to ring so Deonna can beat her in another  standard match? Or maybe in another No Disqualifications match? No, no, no. Why not just save us all the trouble and lie down for Deonna to pin you now. Rosa says Deonna is just so funny. But hey, it’s okay. Deonna has made a lot of enemies here, more than she can believe. Next week on Collision, in Rosa’s home state of Texas, Rosa’s new friends, and some of Deonna’s “acquaintances,” will all watch Rosa break Deonna’s face.

Because next week, it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! Deonna says all Rosa does is yap yap yap. Rosa tells Deonna off in Espanol, but will they both be speaking the universal language of an ass kicking next week in Texas?

 

Backstage interview with Nyla Rose.

The Native Beast is in a very good mood as she joins Lexy, and Lexy congratulates her on the win tonight. But Nyla has something to say so the floor is hers. Nyla wants to say she’s doing great! She goes to leave, but then steps back and and says there is one little thing more. You all like wrestling? Then let’s talk about it. A few days, Nyla noticed a little tweet on her Twitter feed, put out by The CEO. Nyla loves the dance, but hey, guess what? Mercedes Mone issued an Open Challenge for Dynamite 250! Little Rock, Arkansas, to anyone except Dr. Britt Baker, DMD. Well, last time Nyla checked, she ain’t a dentist, but she does knock teeth out.

Listen: Nyla has what it takes! She was on the first ever Dynamite, she is a former AEW Women’s World Champion,, she won the first ever Women’s Casino Battle Royal, and is the first woman on the AEW roster to make it to 100 wins total. So next week, Dynamite 250, Nyla may not have ever driven a Mercedes, but she’s damn sure gonna wreck one! SKRRRR~! The Native Beast wants to finally have some gold back around her waist, will she waste Mone to get it?

Saraya asks how Aubrey is a ref when she can’t count right! Harley stalks Skye to ropes, brings her up to CLUB her, then BACK- NO! Skye holds ropes to stop the backstabber, and now jackknife bridge! TWO, and Harley spins Skye to ROCK her again! Skye SUPERKICKS back! Skye fireman’s carries for the T K O! Roll back, into a DRAGON SLEEPER HEAD ‘N’ ARM TRIANGLE! Harley TAPS, Skye wins!

Skye Blue speaks.

“You see that? You see that? These b*tches need to start putting some respect on my name! Because I am one of the best here. So maybe just to get it through their heads, I have to beat one of the best on the entire roster. So… Hikaru Shida… the so-called Greatest AEW Women’s World Champ of all time… Next week, I want you one-on-one.” Skye calls out the Shining Samurai, will Shida make Skye put some respect on her name?

 

Orange Cassidy & Kyle O’Reilly VS The Kingdom!

The Conglomeration has been itching for a fight with Roderick Strong, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett, and we’ll be seeing part of that when Mark Briscoe takes on Roddy at Death Before Dishonor. The other two-thirds are in action now, will this be a Violently Squeezed victory for Cassidy & Kyle? Or will Taven & Bennett show us why they’re ROH World Tag Team Champions?

The teams sort out and Kyle starts against Taven. Taven tells Kyle that they’re still friends, he doesn’t wanna do this. Taven tags Bennett, and Bennett circles with Kyle. But then Bennett also gets second thoughts, and he bails out. The Kingdom doesn’t wanna fight their “friend” but the fans chant “WUSSIES! WUSSIES!” So Cassidy tags in to DIVE onto them both!

Taven stops that, suplexes, but gets STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE! Cassidy holds Taven in place so Kyle can AX and SMASH! Bennett stands, blocks a kick, but Kyle rolls to pick the ANKLE LOCK! Bennett endures, reaches out, and he rolls! Taven GAMANGIRIS Kyle, but Cassidy DECKS Taven! Cassidy dodges Bennett, SHOVES him out, then Cassidy DIVES! Direct hit and Bennett hits railing! Cassidy sends Bennet to the apron but Bennett rebounds, BOSTON BAYONET!

Bennett endures, calls Taven, and they PROTON PACK Kyle down! Cover, Cassidy breaks it! The fans cheer, Taven storms up, and Roddy cheers his team from commentary. Cassidy TOSSES Taven first, though! Then he dodges Bennett to SHOTGUN! But JUST THE TIP hits Cassidy! Kyle storms up, Taven ROCKS him! Taven again apologizes but what’s done is done. Taven runs, into a KNEE! Kyle snapmares Taven, Bennett ROCKS him!

Kyle yoyos in ropes to DOUBLE LARIAT The Kingdom! The fans fire up as all three men are down! Roddy is conflicted as Collision goes picture in picture.

Cassidy crawls on the outside, Taven bails out, leaving Kyle and Bennett in the ring. Kyle and Bennett crawl, hot tags to Taven and Cassidy! Cassidy and Taven fire off fast hands! Taven knees low, whips Cassidy, but Cassidy tumbles up and out to then bump Taven off buckles. Cassidy dribbles Taven off the buckles again and again, pauses, then again! Cassidy goes up the corner but Taven distracts the ref so that Bennett can trip Cassidy up! Roddy smiles as Cassidy falls to the mat. Bennett tag sin, he drags Cassidy up, and Bennett CHOPS! Cassidy sputters, Bennett ROCKS him! And CHOPS him! Cassidy falls, Bennett soaks up the heat.

Bennett stays between Cassidy and Kyle, mocks the hands in pockets, then stomps Cassidy. Roddy is having fun now as Bennett whips Cassidy to ropes. Bennett ELBOWS Cassidy down, covers, TWO! Bennett clamps on with a chinlock and he grinds Cassidy down. Cassidy fights up, pries at the hold, then fires body shots. Bennett ROCKS Cassidy, tags Taven, and The Kingdom mugs Cassidy as Collision returns to single picture. But then Cassidy starts fighting back! The fans fire up as but Taven knees low. The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then whips him to ropes. POP-UP BAYONET! Cover, TWO!!

The fans fire up but Taven drags Cassidy over. Tag to Bennett, they stomp Cassidy, then Bennett CHOPS Cassidy. Cover, TWO! Tag to Taven, The Kingdom mugs Cassidy more, then Taven bumps Cassidy off buckles. Taven digs his boot in, tags to Bennett, then he sends Taven in.

Roddy tells Kyle he can’t do this to their friends! Kyle says Roddy needs to just back off. The ref tells Roddy to stop, but here’s Ishii!! Ishii YANKS Roddy down, he fires off hands! The fans fire up for the Stone Pitbull, but wait! TRENT BERETTA sneaks in from the crowd side! Trent YANKS Cassidy out, and THROWS him into railing! Trent still hates Cassidy that much! Bennett rolls Kyle up in all the chaos, TWO!! Kyle ROCKS Bennett, Bennett ROLLING ELBOWS back! Bennett reels Kyle in, but Kyle snap suplexes! ARMBAR!! Taven goes up top to FROG SPLASH Kyle! Taven goes back up, tags in, and Bennett has Kyle up! HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall

Trent shouts that HE was supposed to win, and he CHOKES Cassidy! Trent vows that they are far from over! As for The Kingdom, they still insist they are Kyle’s friends, despite what they just did to him. And Trent won’t let Cassidy have friends, he PUNTS Kyle in the side! The Kingdom shove Trent back, they apparently are still his friend. Cassidy gets up, and he has a wrench?!? Cassidy CLUBS Trent on the back!! The fans lose their minds over Cassidy showing his dark side! Kyle stops Cassidy from going after The Kingdom, as they’re apparently still his friends, too. Cassidy hears Kyle out, and he puts the wrench down.

But that’s okay, Ishii DOUBLE LARIATS The Kingdom! Ishii stands with his friend in Orange Cassidy, and the fans cheer as The Conglomeration still stands tall. But just how much deeper will the grudge between Cassidy and Trent go after this? Will they have to go All In to finally put it to a rest?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of Collision, but you could tell this was prerecorded in Calgary, not live. But that’s fine, we got some good post show content from Dynamite here, such as Jarrett meeting with Martha & Oje, and some hype packages for the coming title matches, like Ospreay VS MJF and Swerve VS Danielson. We got a good promo from  Deonna and Rosa to add to what we got on Rampage, but I can’t be sure it was that crucial to have. They could’ve had this for Dynamite 250 to set up the Lumberjack match for Collision and it would’ve been the same. And we got more of “Holo.grm,” aka Hologram, but I cannot tell who this really is behind the mask.

The House of Black but they were still rather vague about what’s gonna happen next. Maybe they wait to see what happens with the Unified Trios Championships. Good squash win for Bang Bang Gang, and really good promo from them, The Fallen Angel and Christian Cage to set up a Trios Championship match. The semantics of it are silly, though. “No Freebird Rule here in AEW! The Bang Bang Gang is stripped! But they’re also right in the title match with The Patriarchy!” A = B = C, Juice IS a Trios Champion and he is helping defend the titles after all. But that said, maybe Patriarchy finds a way to win, House of Black surprisingly gets Buddy Matthews back in time, Patriarchy VS House of Black for the titles at All In.

Great opener from Takeshita VS Billington, and I do like Callis trying to recruit the new Dynamite Kid to his group. FTR coming to the rescue is great, I could see FTR & Billington VS Takeshita, Fletcher & Rush to be Rush’s first match as a member of the Don Callis Family. As such, it feels like Rush will pin Billington, and then maybe we get more FTR VS Don Callis Family feuding through the Summer. Stokely & Kris had a good promo to explain their actions, and we should definitely get an All In blowoff between Kris and Willow. And at the same time, Willow becoming CMLL Women’s World Champion totally refutes their statement that all she has was cuz of them, cuz now she did this on her own!

Nyla Rose of course won her match tonight, but very good promo for her to accept Mone’s Open Challenge. Now, pretty sure Mone finds a way to win, it’ll add to how she’s a tough champion and all. But also, Mone VS Britt will still happen at All In, even if Mone doesn’t want it. I feel like Britt needs to get back in the ring to “earn” the shot, though, because that’s how AEW is supposed to work. Very good tag match from Top Flight VS Ogogo & Moriarty, but it feels rather redundant after we just got Top Flight VS Shane Taylor Promotions just last night on ROH. Maybe we get Shane VS Action 1v1 to complete the set.

Good match from Skye VS Harley, and good win for Skye. Skye calling out Shida was a bold move, not sure if that backfires on her. And very good stuff in the story of The Conglomeration and The Undisputed Kingdom. Roddy VS Castle not being the main event surprised me, but I suppose Roddy was of course going to win. And Briscoe having a promo so at the ready was another indicator this was all prerecorded. Briscoe VS Roddy is going to be awesome stuff for Death Before Dishonor, though. Then Cassidy & Kyle VS Taven & Bennett in the main event was really good, and I was pleasantly surprised by the overbooking.

Roddy keeps talking trash on Ishii so of course Ishii showed up, but then Trent was the biggest surprise. Well, that and Cassidy cracking him with a wrench! I feel like they’re going to have a really hardcore blowoff match at some point, and that monkey wrench is gonna come into play for the finish.

My Score: 8.7/10

Roderick Strong w/ The Kingdom VS Ben Bishop!

The Savior of the Backbreaker is set for an ROH World Championship #1 contender’s match tomorrow night on Collision against Dalton Castle. But in an occasion of turnabout is fair play, The Conglomeration is watching him from commentary! Will the presence of Kyle O’Reilly, Orange Cassidy & Mark Briscoe make Roddy better or worse than usual?

The bell rings and Kyle says that while he loves and appreciates Roddy, Taven & Bennett, they’re being more like the Undisputed Cling-dom! Meanwhile, big Ben Bishop stalks some smack on Roddy, and then pretends he can’t see him. Roddy says okay, be that way. They tie up, Cassidy points out just how tall Ben is, and big Ben shoves Roddy down! The fans fire up, Roddy comes right back, but Ben TOSSES him away!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall

The Conglomeration is in agreement, that was impressive work by Roddy, because Roddy is indeed that good. But Cassidy says it is time to go stare down with them. The Conglomeration stand on stage to stare down The Kingdom, but Roddy needs to focus on tomorrow night. Will Roddy punch his golden ticket to an ROH World Championship match? Or will it be The Peacock that means the Sussex County Chicken in Arlington, Texas?

 

Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

The Virtuosa is served a glass of wine, and says we’ve never been formally introduced. We’ve all seen what she can do in the ring, but does anyone know what it means to be THE Virtuosa. “Wrestling isn’t just a sport or an art form, it’s both. And more set to a quickening pace than a staccato beat of bodies slamming, bones cracking, tendons tearing! All building towards a beautiful and violent crescendo.” Deonna likes what AEW has forced her to become. “Because here, actions have consequences.” And Deonna vows to burn the empire to the ground, to remake it in her own image. This is the Age of the Virtuosa.

AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Renee Paquette caught up with Chris Jericho, “Big Bill” Morrissey & Bryan Keith, and asks what the hell. Yes, she’s seen The Learning Tree do “a ton of horrible other things” throughout his career, but tonight with Samoa Joe crossed a line. What was he thinking? Jericho smiles, the leather belt gifted to him by Martha Hart still wrapped around his hand. He waves to the camera and says, “Hi, guys. And Renee, I don’t know why you’re so surprised. This is exactly what I’ve been saying for a long, long time. If you’ve listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. Look at The Redwood and Bad Apple.

“But if you don’t listen to The Learning Tree, bad things happen. Shibata had a chance, now his arm is hurt. Hook had a chance, we had to burn his face off with a fireball. And Samoa Joke, for years, I’ve been telling you to listen to The Learning Tree, you didn’t, we ran you through a wall, and now you’re in the hospital.” Bill is stifling a laugh this entire time. Jericho says if Joe needs something to help with his inflamed muscles he might have, try ginger and black pepper. It’s really good for you. See, Renee? Lots of lessons to be learned. And even more will be learned on Dynamite 250, with a special edition of TV Time with Chris Jericho. Thanks, guys~…!

Jericho leaves, and Bill says one of the biggest lessons that Jericho has taught them is that the more TV Time, the better. And they want as much TV Time as possible! Because The Learning Tree, The Bad Apple and The Redwood are always maximizing their minutes. She should try it some time. Keith says if you don’t respect Chris Jericho, they will MAKE you respect Chris Jericho. Will everyone in AEW learn the hard way that Jericho isn’t kidding around?

 

Thunder Rosa VS Rachael Ellering!

We heard the Virtuosa speak her mind, but La Mera Mera looks to show, not tell. Will Rosa be more than ready to go another round with Deonna? Or will the Queen of Strong Smile make some bold moves of her own?

Rachael staggers, Rosa KICKS a leg out! Rosa then runs to LARIAT Rachael down! Cover, TWO! Rosa clamps on with a chinlock, then shifts up to an armlock. Rosa CHOPS Rachael, ELBOWS her, then throws down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL elbows! Cover, TWO! Rachael goes to a corner, but Rosa CHOPS her again!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

That could’ve been a win by knockout with that killer haymaker! But will Shane Taylor Promotions continue to rampage until they prove they prove they’re the elite of All Elite Wrestling?


My Thoughts:

A really good Rampage, and while they shoved five matches onto this card again, they at least did their best to put story behind most of these. Roderick Strong was of course beating Ben Bishop, but they gave us a storyline plug by having The Conglomeration on commentary. And while Thunder Rosa was of course beating Rachael Ellering, they gave us story build with Deonna attacking them both. I feel like this will give us Deonna VS Ellering next, to stretch things out so that the true blowoff of Deonna VS Rosa isn’t until All In, probably in the All In Zero Hour. For that matter, that’s probably where Conglomeration VS Undisputed Kingdom 3v3 happens, too.

I’m a bit torn on the promo from Learning Tree Jericho and crew. The positive is that it was really good. I said for Dynamite that I like how the payoff is Jericho’s gone from condescending to sinister, and even Big Bill is getting into this crazy persona. The negative for me is that they kinda shoved this in here. I know we DO need to hear Jericho’s explanation, but if it was “after Dynamite,” then find a way to make it part of Dynamite. Or just leave it for Saturday Night Collision so that you aren’t already stuffing a one hour program full to the brim.

Great opening tag from House of Black VS Premier Athletes with Sterling & Woods of course getting involved, but great win for Malakai & Brody in that 4v2 situation. Still banking on them screwing over The Patriarchy during a Unified World Trios Championship match. The Six Man Tag was really good but not sure it was main event material compared to the Fatal 4 Way. Good stuff for the Six Man Tag, everyone got their shine, but that Fatal 4 Way was just incredible. Great win for Fenix to stay hot while all the titles have stories going into All In, but he could get a shot at like, Okada’s Continental Championship to give us a dream match moment before the PPV.

My Score: 8.8/10
