AEW All-Atlantic Championship: Orange Cassidy VS Wheeler Yuta!

Freshly Squeezed and The Decoder were once friends, but no longer! Will Cassidy also no longer be champion? Or will he stop the ROH Pure Champion from adding to his collection?

The introductions are made, the AEW belt is raised, and Dynamite in Phoenix is off to a hot start!

The bell rings and fans fire up as the sunglasses are off! Cassidy offers a handshake, but Yuta swings on him! Cassidy gets around, rolls Yuta up, TWO! Cassidy headlocks, Yuta powers out but Cassidy runs him over. Yuta kicks Cassidy away, things speed up, Yuta hurdles but Cassidy returns to wheelbarrow and arm-drag to a cover! ONE, ghost pin, ONE! Ghost pin from Cassidy, ONE! Ghost pin from Yuta! ONE, Oklahoma Roll, TWO!! Yuta bails out but Phoenix is loving “A E DUB! A E DUB!” Yuta hears the ring count and he gets on the apron.

And then Yuta dumps the table on Cassidy! The ref reprimands and fans boo but Claudio high-fives Yuta. Yuta soaks up the heat while he paces around in the ring. Cassidy crawls out from under the table and Claudio goes back to the back.

Yuta fetches Cassidy, to POST him! Yuta stands on Cassidy then steps away. Yuta drags Cassidy up, puts him in the ring, and then stalks Cassidy to a corner. Cassidy sputters but Yuta grinds his forearm in. Yuta CHOPS Cassidy, pie faces him, then CHOPS him again! Cassidy is stinging but Yuta winds up. Cassidy puts his hands up to have Yuta stop, but then puts them in his pockets! Yuta laughs, then fires off CHOPS and FOREARMS! Yuta throws Cassidy down, and dares Cassidy to hit back! Yuta CHOPS, but Cassidy fires those shin kicks! Yuta ROLLING ELBOWS, runs, but into a SHOTGUN! And then Cassidy kips up!

Cassidy writhes on the floor while Yuta paces. Yuta taunts the fans, saying he’s gonna squeeze Orange. Cassidy drags himself up but Yuta is right on him. Yuta scoops Cassidy to SLAM him on the floor! Yuta then gets in the ring to soak up more heat. Cassidy stirs, sits up and drags himself into the ring. Yuta is right there to bring Cassidy up. Yuta toys with Cassidy, then CHOPS him down! Yuta ties the legs up again, and cranks on the deathlock! Yuta mocks Cassidy’s thumbs up, before putting on the BOW ‘N’ ARROW! Cassidy endures, Yuta makes it a cover, TWO!

Fans chant “HUG IT OUT! HUG IT OUT!” But Claudio returns, and he tells Yuta to come along. Yuta listens to Claudio and leaves. Will

 

Backstage interview with Hangman Page and Evil Uno.

Renee Paquette is with the Cowboy and the de facto Dark Order leader, wanting to talk about the situation last week creating tonight’s main event match, Evil Uno VS Jon Moxley. How has Uno been preparing? Uno says, “Well how exactly do you prepare for the most violent-” Hangman cuts off that rhetorical question by saying, “You don’t! I’ve asked you guys to stay out of this a thousand times, and I get it.” But before Hangman can explain things, Uno says, “Y’know what? I’ve heard you talk so many times, Hangman, and you’ve requested so many times for us not to get involved. But every time you say that, you know what I hear? ‘Dark Order is not on your level.’

“So, I have a request for you. No matter what happens in that match, from bell to bell, I do not want you to get involved. And if you were Dark Order, you would understand that. It’s time for us to stand up for ourselves. So Jon Moxley, tonight, you get to find out exactly why my name is Evil Uno.” Renee wishes him the best of luck and sends things back to the ring. Will Uno be the one that denies Moxley his 100th win tonight?

 

Ricky Starks is here!

Phoenix fires up as The Absolute strikes his pose, then heads to the ring. He clearly has a contract in his coat pocket, so clearly he has some business to take care of. We’ll hear from “Stroke Daddy,” after the break.

AEW returns and Starks has the mic. Fans chant for “RICKY! RICKY!” and he says he could let them keep chanting, but they’d get mad at him for going over time. But it ain’t no secret these past few months, he’s dealt with interference from the JAS. Baseball bats, people dressed up in masks, and being put through a table. “The message seems pretty clear to me, Chris. You do not wanna have a rematch against moi. And I accept that. I accept that the rematch won’t happen, so I will be moving on from Chris Jericho. But, what I have right here is an open challenge. An open contract for a match against me at Revolution.

“And as my theme song says, the revolution will be televised, so I’ll be damned if I’m left off of this PPV. So I know that there’s somebody that is back there that is itching to get on this card. And hey, I welcome you to come out here, and let’s do the damn thing, y’know what I’m saying?” But then JERICHO appears! Starks sighs but Jericho has a mic of his own. Fans sing Judas for Jericho while the pyro goes off, and then Jericho says, “Now, Ricky Starks, I know what you’re trying to do here right now. You’re trying to bait me into having another match with you.

“But let me say this. You say you’re over and done with Chris Jericho. You’re not over and done until I say so. Let me tell you this, count your blessings, Starks. You beat Chris Jericho, congratulations. It was the highlight of your career, take it and put it in a box, and put it by your nightstand and look at it every night before you go to sweep. Because it’s never gonna happen again! Starks, I could beat you any time, any place, anywhere, but it’s never gonna happen because you are not at my level.” Fans boo and Starks chuckles. Jericho wishes Starks luck with the Open Challenge. And here comes The Wingmen’s “Pretty” Peter Avalon!

Avalon says this is his chance to hit it big, but then Jericho hits a JUDAS EFFECT! And his jacket’s covered in spikes!! Jericho storms down to the ring but fans chant, “We Want Peter!” Jericho tells them to shut up! “See what happens when you want an open challenge? Everyone’s gonna walk out here. You want Jericho so bad, you can’t have Revolution without Jericho, without the Demo God. Maybe I should take that little contract of yours, Starks! Have a rematch with you and embarrass your stupid ass!” Fans boo but Starks says yeah, Jericho can sign it. But we all know he’ll bring the JAS out here, they’ll jump Starks, beat him up, and that’s all good.

But Starks asks Jericho this: “As THE Chris Jericho, the first AEW World Champion, the guy who beat two legends in one night, you did that all by yourself, right? I don’t understand why you keep needing the JAS. But unless you really think that you probably can’t beat me… I Just think you have it in you to get the job done by yourself, that’s all I’m saying.” Jericho says Starks doesn’t think Jericho can win 1v1? Nope. Actually, Jericho can. Starks genuinely believes Jericho can. Jericho snatches the contract, looks at it, and fans chant “SIGN IT!”

Jericho says damn right he can win! And he can do it 1v1, he’s the Great Chris Jericho! Le Champion! One of the best ever! Of course Jericho can beat little Starks 1v1. He’ll sign it and add an addendum that the JAS stays in the back at Revolution! He’ll do that right here and now! “Except, uh, I don’t have a pen.” Jericho smirks, and Starks says, “Damn. But I do.” Fans fire up and Jericho reluctantly takes the contract. And he clicks it! Jericho signs his part, writes the addendum himself, and if Starks wants it, he’s got it! Jericho VS Starks at Revolution! “Be careful what you wish for, Ricky. Because remember this: nobody outsmarts The Ocho.”

Jericho walks away all smug, but Starks smiles and winks at the camera. Will this be an absolute classic?

 

The many AEW tag teams speak.

Matthew Menard says in Phoenix, Arizona, the Tag Team Revolution Battle Royal is on Dynamite! The Blade says, “Ready! Aim! FIRE!” Sonjay Dutt says “we,” meaning Jarrett & Lethal, are going to win that Battle Royal! He will even get in the ring if he has to! Top Flight are ready to make good on a promise they’ve had since the beginning. They’ve been on fire since the Three Kings Christmas, and they’re challenging everyone to step up or take flight. Alex Abrahantes says those AEW World Tag Team Championships belong to “us,” meaning Penta El Zero Miedo & Rey Fenix.

But who has the most tag team wins in 2023? Alex Reynolds & John Silver do! And who will win this battle royal? They will! But Mark Sterling says the icing on the cake is that HIS guys, Tony Nese & Ari Daivari, are going to win the titles. Best Friends are fired up, mad, and guarantee nothing but a win! Who takes the first golden ticket to join The Gunns and The Acclaimed at Revolution? Speaking of…

 

The Acclaimed w/ Billy Gunn VS Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey w/ Stokely Hathaway!

Max Caster & Anthony Bowens got ROBBED by Austin & Colten in El Paso, but they’re more than ready to get some payback! However, they’re up against #TAIGASTYLE and the human skyscraper, who are good friends and business partners of the Gunns. Will The Firm take care of business and take out one contender before Revolution even gets here?

As always, Platinum Max has a diss track on deck! “The Acclaimed came, got the crowd poppin’ harder. We gonna run you outta town like you Robert Sarver! Lee Moriarty is Taiga Style. It’s kinda funny, cuz your mom likes it doggy style! Stokely, we’ll bump you outta Phoenix. You gotta cast cuz you’re always touching your penis! Yo Bill, your girl just text me. She says that your ass is S-A-W-F-T!” Bowens says, “PHOENIX ARIZOOONA~! The Acclaimed have arrived! SCISSOR ME, DADDY ASS~!” And they do! Caster shot hard on all three men in the other corner, will he and Bowens bring more heat in the match?

The teams sort out, Caster starts against Moriarty and fans sing, “OH~ Scissor Me, Daddy~!” Moriarty dares Caster to bring it, they tie up, and Caster headlocks. Moriarty powers up and out but Caster runs him over. Things speed up, Moriarty hurdles but Caster arm-drags! Fans cheer as Caster swivels hips. Moriarty fights up, Moriarty wrenches, and whips. Bill knees Caster! Bowens protests but Moriarty BOOTS him down! Moriarty drags Caster up while fans chant “SCISSORZONA!” Moriarty CLUBS Caster and tells fans to hush. Fans boo instead as he air guitars. Moriarty whips, Bowens tags in and Caster sunset flips!

Bowens runs in with Caster’s knees up, NECKBREAKER BACKBREAKER COMBO! Cover, TWO! Bowens keeps on Moriarty while Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Tag to Caster and Bowens scoop SLAMS Moriarty! Caster CLUBS Bill, then he holds Moriarty open! Bowens goes up, but Bill runs in to SHOVE Bowens down! No timbers here! Bill HOTSHOTS Caster, too, and Moriarty LARIATS! Caster sputters but Moriarty is on him. Moriarty UPPERCUTS Caster to a corner, bumps him off buckles, and he tags in Big Bill. The Firm mugs Caster, then Morrissey shows off his hips. Morrisey CLUBS Caster to a corner, throws big body shots, and he stays close as Caster staggers. Bill bumps Caster off buckles, tags Moriarty back in, and they mug Caster more. Moriarty ROCKS Caster, then stands on his leg as he crawls.

Moriarty stands Caster up but Cater throws body shots. Moriarty knees low but Caster kicks back. Moriarty UPPERCUTS, then CHOKES Caster on the ropes! The ref counts, Moriarty lets off, tag to Bill. The mugging continues, Bill mocks the scissor fingers, and he ROCKS Caster with haymakers! Caster staggers to the Firm’s corner, but here come the Gunns. They wave hi to the Acclaimed while Bill keeps beating Caster down. Dynamite returns to single picture as the fans boo the Ass Boys. But Bill scoops and SLAMS Caster, then mocks the scissor fingers again. Bill runs, but Caster avoids the elbow drop!

Fans fire up, Caster gest to an open corner, and he dodges Bill’s splash! Bill hits buckles, hot tags to Moriarty and Bowens! Bowens rallies with big hands and elbows, and a CHOP! Bowens whips, Moriarty reverses but Bowens hurdles to then mule kick, front kick, run and BULLDOG FAMOUSER! Fans fire up with Bowens as he torture racks, swings and SLAMS Moriarty! Bill runs in, into the ELBOW, CHOP and SUPERKICK! Bill ends up in a corner, fans fire up as Bowens SCISSOR FINGERS Daddy Ass! But Bill blasts past Bowens to BOOT Billy Gunn! And then he BOOTS Bowens! Fans boo but Bill roars!

Bill goes out but Caster RAMS him into barriers! The Gunns hurry up to mug their dad!! Fans boo, these Ass Boys know no lows! The Acclaimed run the Ass Boys off, dodge Bill, and POST him! Moriarty gets Bowens up, PEPSI TWIST! And then suplex, COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO!! Bowens survives and fans fire up! The Gunns shout for the Firm to finish this! Moriarty aims, runs, but Bowens dodges the leg lariat! He hooks Moriarty to a backslide, TWO! Clinch and ARRIVAL! Tag to Caster and he goes up top! MIC DROP!! Cover, The Acclaimed win!

Winners: The Acclaimed, by pinfall

The Firm had the numbers but they couldn’t screw over Caster & Bowens! Daddy Ass is happy to see his boys are on a roll, and they SCISSOR FINGER~! But will justice be served at Revolution?

 

Tony Schiavone is on stage.

“Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, Christian Cage!” Fans boo as Captain Charisma makes his way out, having returned last week to distract and then assault “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry! But speaking of, JB jumps Christian! JB rains down fists, then BLINDSIDE LARIATS!! Fans fire up as JB gets some payback! JB kicks dirt on Christian then leaves. What will Captain Charisma have to say to that? Wait, JB isn’t done! He’s back, with CHAIRS! JB sets one down, then drags Christian over to it! He stands on Christian, grabs the other chair, and raises it! Fans want him to “DO IT! DO IT!” But JB is still conflicted. He may hate Christian, but is he this savage?

JB raises the chair again, but Christian LOW BLOWS!!! And then SMACKS JB in the face! Christian dribbles JB’s face off the steel! Fans boo but Christian soaks it all up. Captain Charisma sits JB up to show the busted-open forehead! Christian stands on JB, and only now do referees show up to tell him to back off. The medic checks JB while fans cheer Aubrey Edwards on for bringing the authority. Will things only get worse between Christian Cage and Jack Perry?

 

Samoa Joe speaks.

First, we recap Wardlow’s warning. Joe then says, “Wardlow, of all of man’s great follies, perhaps his greatest is delusion. I scalped you to take the one thing that meant the most to you, your beloved connection to your father, to send a message that I am not a man to be messed with. So come Revolution, I’m gonna make it very clear that the biggest mistake you ever made was ever stepping back in the ring with me.” The One True King of Wrestling Television has spoken, but will Wardlow still declare war on his kingdom?

 

Saraya w/ Toni Storm VS Skye Blue!

The battlelines are drawn in the AEW Women’s Division, and the outsiders are daring everyone to choose a side. Will Saraya make Phoenix her house? Or will Skye Blue be the one handing out an L tonight?

The bell rings and Saraya circles with Skye. Saraya pie faces Skye, but Skye fires off forearms! Fans fire up but Saraya shoves Skye away. Skye dodges, wheelbarrows, and manages to throw Saraya away. Saraya goes to a corner, Skye runs in but Saraya puts her on the apron. Skye blocks a punch to ROCK Saraya first! Skye then climbs up, but Storm distracts her! Fans boo, but Saraya YANKS Skye down! Saraya stomps a mudhole into Skye, the ref counts, and Saraya lets off with a roar! Fans boo but Saraya TOSSES Skye out! Saraya distracts the ref so Storm can snap suplex Skye to the floor! Skye writhes, Saraya goes out after her.

Saraya RAMS Skye into barriers, snarls and puts Skye in the ring. Saraya pushes Skye to a cover, TWO! Fans rally but Saraya wraps Skye up in an abdominal stretch. Saraya mocks the fans, puts on the pressure, but Skye endures. Saraya turns Skye around, whips her to ropes, but Skye tilt-o-whirls and wraps on the IRON OCTOPUS! Saraya endures, powers out, and hits the LIGHTNING SPIRAL! Cover, TWO!! Saraya is annoyed that Skye survives, and she runs in at the corner. Skye UPPERCUTS, ROUNDHOUSES, then goes up top! Fans fire up for Skye but Saraya ROCKS her first! Saraya then climbs up and fires more forearms!

Fans boo but Saraya brings Skye up. Skye resists the lift, fires body shots, and Saraya hops down. Skye leaps, CROSSBODIES, and fires up! Fans fire up with her as she spins Saraya to a KNEE, whip, and SHINING WIZARD at the ropes! Skye keeps moving, SHOTGUN! Cover, but Storm distracts the ref! Fans boo, Skye might’ve had this! Skye DECKS Storm and fans love it! But Saraya THRUST KICKS! And then Saraya grabs the legs, steps through and turns Skye over, KNIGHT’S CROSSING! Skye taps, Saraya wins!

Winner: Saraya, by submission

Skye lost, but Saraya & Storm are going to add insult to injury! They have the spray paint cans, but here comes Jamie Hayter & Britt Baker! The champ and the Doctor run the outsiders off, no L being sprayed tonight! Well, Saraya and Storm spray a fan’s sign with one real quick, then run off. But here comes Ruby Soho! The Runaway isn’t going to let them run away! But Ruby also tells Hayter that she wants the belt. Hayter is fine with that, but will Saraya & Storm still make this about them?

 

Bryan Danielson is here!

Phoenix fires up again as The American Dragon heads to the ring, and he gets the mic to say, “Boy, is it great to be back in Phoenix, Arizona!” Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” and Bryan continues with, “Man, it seems like you people might want me to win the AEW Championship at Revolution.” They continue to say “YES! YES! YES!” Bryan says he will do everything in his power to beat MJF for that title. “But first, I wanna talk a little bit about what MJF said last week. MJF came out into this ring, and said he hates Bryan Danielson. So let me get this straight: he tries to break the arm of a friend of mine for over 20 years, and he hates me?

“Let me get this straight: he put a bounty on my head, tried to injure me so I can’t even make it to the PPV, but he hates me? MJF hospitalized my mentor, William Regal, and he hates-” WAIT! Here comes MJF! Fans are torn as Maxwell Jacob Friedman walks out but he has the music cut. He stares Bryan down from the stage, and he says, “Bryan, you may have all these shmucks twisted, but I know who you really are, man. And I know who I really am. I’m the guy who got left stranded by anyone I’ve ever opened up to. I’m the guy who got thrown away like trash by anyone who’s ever claimed they loved me.

“And then I met a girl. A girl who changed my outlook on every single person on this planet. My dream girl, the girl I fell in love with. She convinced me that not everyone in this world is bad, so I became the man who got down on one knee and I told that girl I wanted to start a family with her. I wanted to make a home with her. I wanted to have children with her. And you know what she did, Bryan Danielson? She left me. She left me, Bryan!” Fans aren’t exactly upset to hear that. Quite a few chant, “You Deserve It!” MJF says “She left me because I’m unlovable!

And now, the only thing I have in this life that I can trust, the only thing I have in this world that makes me feel unconditional love, is this Triple B! The AEW World Heavyweight Championship is the only thing stopping me from grabbing a fistful of pills and calling it a day! But not you, Bryan, no! Everybody loves the American Dragon, Bryan Danielson! Everybody looks up to you. Everyone respects you. They throw their hands up in their air and they scream, ‘Yes!’ at the top of their lungs!” Fans do it even now! “And as if that wasn’t enough, you have something I’ll never have: you have a family.

“A beautiful, smart, adoring wife, two happy healthy children. And you take all of it for granted! You wanna know why I hate you, Dragon? It’s not because these shmucks actually think that you’re better than me, cuz Lord knows by March 5th, they’ll know that ain’t the truth. I hate you because you have had more concussions and more head trauma than anyone in the history of this business. You suffered concussion after concussion until you were on the floor, foam streaming down your face, having seizures. And you’re still in my sport? Every time you step foot in that ring, you’re saying wrestling is more important than your family and your children.

“Every time you step foot in that ring, you’re spitting in my face! Because you are taking everything I would kill for, for granted! You are no different than your worthless, drug addicted mentor, William Regal, who I gladly sent home to the hospital. Matter of fact, Bryan, you’re worse. Because you’re addicted to the spotlight. Well guess what? On March 5th at Revolution, you’re gonna get all the spotlight you could possibly ever need in that Ironman match. Because I’m gonna punish you, Dragon. I’m gonna punish you for trying to take away the ONE THING I have in this life! And I am gonna punish you for everything you have taken for granted.

“So now, I’d like to take this chance to speak to your children watching at home.” Bryan tells him not to DARE bring the family into this, or he’ll kick the sh*t outta him! Fans fire up for that! MJF still says, “Hi, Birdie. Hi, Buddy. It’s your Uncle Max here. I just want you to know that come March 5th at Revolution, I’m gonna make Dada pay for all his selfishness. I’m gonna grab Dada’s arm, and I’m gonna rip it outta socket until he submits! And I’m gonna make sure Dada can never play with you again.” Fans boo and tell MJF off, but he just says, “For one hour straight, I’m gonna make sure Dada can never pick you up again.

“And then, Uncle Max is gonna take his fist and hit Dada in the head with it over and over again! And I’m gonna give Dada a present on March 5th.” MJF storms up to the ring and the apron. Does everyone wanna know what the gift is? EARLY ONSET CT- BRYAN FIRES OFF ON MJF! They brawl, MJF tackles Bryan but Bryan turns it around to rain down fists!! Security has to rush out there to stop this but fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” Bryan gets loose to TACKLE MJF! They brawl more, the security separates them, but MJF fights off the guards! He CLOBBERS Bryan in a corner! Bryan pushes MJF all the way back!

Fans boo as refs and produces rush out now to make sure these two stay apart! but Bryan manages to get loose again! MJF runs off, BJ Whitmer tries to reason with Bryan, but Bryan slides out to CLOBBER MJF into the timekeeper’s area! Bryan wants MJF again and fans are losing their minds! Security gets Bryan away from MJF, but will this only explode in the ONE HOUR Ironman Match?

 

Backstage interview with Jamie Hayter & Britt Baker.

Tony Schiavone of course talks with the Killer & the Pillar, and brings up what we saw earlier tonight with them confronting Saraya & Storm. Hayter says they are PISSED! Saraya is getting too big for her britches, thinking she can just walk around here, do whatever she wants, and wreak havoc and destroy everything that Britt, Hayter and the rest of the AEW Women’s Division have created. Hayter doesn’t like that. Hayter also noticed how Saraya was glancing at the AEW Women’s World Championship last week. Sure, Saraya might be worthy for a shot. Saraya hasn’t lost a single match since her comeback, and you have to respect that.

But look at everything Saraya’s trying to do. “Ruin it from the ground up.” But Hayter thinks someone else is also deserving of a shot at Revolution, in one Ruby Soho. Ever since Ruby came back from injury, she’s been killing it. She’s busted her ass and shown everyone why she should be after this title, as well. So Hayter is “wracking her brain” trying to think of who is more deserving. So let’s have a little fun at Revolution and make it a TRIPLE THREAT! Saraya, Soho, Hayter will beat both you b*tches, neither one is taking this title off her! The champ has spoken, will it be made official? Can Hayter still hit hard when there’s two opponents at once?

 

Revolution Tag Team Battle Royal!

The Gunns and The Acclaimed are already headed to the tag title match in the Golden State, but pretty much everyone else has a shot at a spot! Top Flight, Silver & Reynolds, Team Triple J, La Faccion Ingobernable, Best Friends, the Lucha Brothers, The Butcher & The Blade, Menard & Parker, Nese & Daivair and even NJPW’s Aussie Open are all here, and at the bell, they all flood the ring! Who will be the last team standing to be the first team added to Revolution?

Fans fire up as the brawling is on between all the teams, but the JAS stay outside. Some brawls spill out from the middle rope, but most of the teams stay inside. Sonjay Dutt helps Jarrett mug Fenix, even though Sonjay isn’t a participant! Now the JAS get involved, Trent and Lethal brawl outside, and Penta KICKS Jarrett! Rush whips Jarrett at Penta and Jarrett LARIATS Penta! Jarrett and Rush mug Penta, Nese & Daivari stomp away on Fenix. Reynolds CHOPS Vance, Butcher & Blade stomp away on Top Flight.

Winners: Team Triple J, by pinfall

The Last Outlaw wins it for his team, but it helps that his team had extra members! Will Triple J steal the tag titles like they did Paul Walter Hauser’s Golden Globe? And who will be in next week’s Casino Tag Team Battle Royal to win that final spot?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

With Aussie Open here tonight and fans excited to see them, Davis & Fletcher will get a tag match with the Young Bucks for Rampage! Will Aussie Open get themselves in on the Trios Championships? Or will they just be part of a Superkick Party?

 

The House of Black speak.

Malakai says, “Thousands of people is what you heard last week. Thousands of people that feel. Feel and see the same things that we’ve been seeing for months. But there is a problem, as we said, within this company. And it’s time for us to address that problem, eradicate it, and let these voices be heard.” Brody King steps out from the shadows with Julia Hart and says, “The House will bring a firestorm to purify the current landscape of AEW. And from the ashes rain, The House will cement its foundation on the cinder, built to last.”

Buddy Matthews walks out from the shadows and adds, “But before Revolution, we the House would like to discuss your status as AEW World Trios Champions this Friday, face to face.” The House of Black wants to meet The Elite, will Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks accept the invitation?

 

Backstage interview with Tony Khan.

Renee is with the AEW President & CEO, and knows he has a HUGE announcement to make. What’s going on? Tony says this is huge stuff involving a lot of the big stars and the people backstage. Tony felt this would be best made by a major star in AEW, and that man is ADAM COLE! Cole and Tony shake hands and Tony steps aside. Renee asks Cole what’s going on. Cole says that last week, he said he was really excited about getting to tell more of his story. That day is upon us. Starting next month in March, there will be a weekly, one-hour television series immediately following after Dynamite right on TBS, AEW All Access.

AEW All Access will be a look at the company like you’ve never seen before. It’ll feature names like Adam Cole Baybay, Dr. Britt Baker, and many more. And trust him when he says this is something you will not want to miss. For example, Cole is getting to show a lot of his story, his challenges, his ups and downs and everything in between. He is excited to share that journey with everyone watching at home. He also has more good news. That same night, the debut night of AEW All Access, live on Dynamite, Cole will make his in-ring return! For the past six months, Cole has gone through hell, challenge after challenge, just imagining this day happening, “and that day is oh so very close.”

Cole is “damn sure” he’ll be the best Adam Cole he’s ever been, and the AEW roster better be ready. March is going to be special, from AEW All Access and Adam Cole being back, baybay! Will there be some real March madness in AEW?

 

Team Triple J speaks.

Sonjay Dutt says that everything he has said has come true! They are going to Revolution and become tag team champions! Jarrett says it’s just 10 days away, and he told us all they’d do it! But in step The Gunns! Colten & Austin have them all settle down, no hitting anyone with a guitar. They aren’t here to fight, but Colten is thinking that maybe it should be just the two teams here. Sonjay says their Firm buddies sure didn’t get the job done with The Acclaimed. What’re the champs really trying to say? All they’re saying is that they can take care of each other’s business before Revolution.

Jarrett says they’ll take care of business when The Gunns take care of business. Uh, they always take care of business. Do they see the titles? Austin mocks Jarrett’s guitar playing. Sonjay fist bumps with the Gunns, Lethal doesn’t mind that, and Sonjay says things are in the bag now. But with a Casino Tag Battle Royal still to come next week, will all these teams be thrown for a loop?

 

BREAKING NEWS for next week’s Dynamite!

After serving his suspension, the Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil, HOOK is back! But as Stokely Hathaway still wants justice, HE gets to decide who Hook faces in a 1v1 match. The FTW Champion’s already torn into everyone in The Firm, who could Stokely possibly #SendHook?

 

Jon Moxley VS Evil Uno!

The Maniac has beaten just about everyone in AEW once over, which is why he’s at 99 wins! Moxley wants that distinction of being the first to 100, but will Uno not be the one? Or will Moxley strike fear in the heart of the Dark Order’s fearless leader?

We see Hangman and Uno watching as Moxley makes his entrance. Hangman pats Uno on the shoulder and sends him off, staying in the back as agreed upon. Uno heads to gorilla, and Dynamite goes to picture in picture.

Moxley finally reaches ringside and Uno makes his entrance. Dynamite returns to single picture, the bell rings, and Uno CLOBBERS Moxley! Uno stomps, throws hands, and even BITES Moxley’s forehead! The ref counts, Uno lets off and stalks Moxley to another corner. Uno CHOPS him, follows him to another corner, and CHOPS again! Fans fire up, Moxley CHOPS back! And CHOPS! And eggs Uno on, so Uno CHOPS back! Moxley ROCKS Uno, Hangman is still watching in the back, and Moxley bumps Uno off buckles. Moxley stomps a mudhole in, then stands on Uno! The ref counts, fans are torn, but Moxley lets off at 4.

Moxley storms around, but Uno CHOPS! Moxley ROCKS Uno, whips him corner to corner, but Uno comes back to BOOT Moxley! Fans fire up, Uno LASHES Moxley with his vest! Uno CHOKES Moxley with the vest, BITES him, but lets off as the ref counts. Uno ROCKS Moxley, CHOPS Moxley, runs side to side to SPLASH! And then runs side to side again for another SPLASH! Uno runs Moxley corner to corner to bump him off buckles. Fans fire up with Uno, hoists him up top, and then CHOPS! Uno climbs up after Moxley, Moxley resists and throws body shots. Moxley ROCKS Uno, and TEARS at the mask!

Fans boo but the ref counts. Moxley lets off and Uno staggers away. Moxley hops down with a smirk, but Uno runs in to BOOT him down! Moxley hits barriers and then staggers away. Uno goes up the corner!? And he SUPER SWANTONS!! Fans are thunderous and Uno throws down fists! The ref tells him to get in the ring, Uno lets off and paces around. Moxley stands, Uno ROCKS him again. Uno CHOPS Moxley, Moxley gets in the ring but Uno slides in. Fans duel, Moxley bails out but Uno pursues. Moxley kicks Uno low, then RAMS him into steel steps! Fans are torn but Moxley drags Uno back up.

Moxley puts Uno’s head on the steps to STOMP him down! Moxley soaks up the cheers and jeers while the ref reprimands. Moxley goes into the ring, says this is done, and he waits on Uno. Uno staggers up, he looks a bit bloodied, but he manages to get in the ring. Moxley runs up to BOOT Uno down! Moxley throws crossface forearms again and again and again! Fans boo and we see a crimson mask forming under the black ‘n’ purple one. Moxley finally lets off on Uno and he paces around again. Moxley stands Uno up but Uno ROCKS him! And reels him in! PILEDRIVER! And then Uno gets Moxley back up! PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!!

Moxley survives and Uno’s dripping blood all over his shoulder and chest. Uno gets Moxley up but Moxley shoots around, SLEEPER! Uno reaches out but Moxley traps the arms to HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOW! SLEEPER, takedown, BULLY CHOKE!! Uno endures, reaches out, Moxley pulls tighter, but Uno is almost SPURTING blood! But still Uno stands up!! Only for Moxley to body scissor! Uno is OUT, Moxley wins!!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by submission

But Moxley isn’t letting go! He has his 100th win, but he just wants to squeeze the life from Uno quite literally! Silver & Reynolds return and they beat up on Moxley! Only for Claudio & Yuta to return and fight them off! The BCC beat down the Dark Order, but here comes Hangman!! The Cowboy waited until the match was over, and now he brawls with Moxley!! Fans are thunderous, and he takes out BARBED WIRE!! He wraps it on his hand, and BARBED WIRE DECKS Moxley!! This is just a sample of the Texas Deathmatch that’s coming! Fans fire up for the “COWBOY SH*T!” going on as Hangman RAMS Moxley into barriers, then rains down fists! Moxley is now busted open!

Hangman wants more, and he throws Moxley back in the ring! BUCK- NO, Moxley runs away! Fans boo, but Moxley grins through the crimson mask now forming on his own face. Will these two soon have the most violent match in AEW’s history?


My Thoughts:

A really good Dynamite here with a lot more set up for Revolution, but I feel like there are some things that need to be addressed. I’m not sure what is the bigger reason to not have blood in every Moxley match: the fact they do it in EVERY Moxley match; or in the case of Uno here tonight, he was losing a lot of blood. Moxley putting on the Bulldog Choke practically squeezed Uno like a ketchup packet. Outside of that, a great showing from Uno, in what was more or less a ten minute match that he wasn’t gonna win anyway. Moxley gets his 100th win, which is cool, but no surprise, he still bleeds tonight as Hangman stands tall against him, busting him open in return. I wasn’t just kayfabing, that Texas Deathmatch will be something else.

Great stuff out of that opener in Cassidy VS Yuta, it really fed into the story between them. And between Moxley trying to bleed Uno and Claudio slapping Yuta and telling him to get vicious, I feel like the BCC outside of Bryan Danielson is going to end up a Heel, and maybe Bryan leaves the group because of that. Bryan and MJF had a strong promo segment, though I feel like MJF is playing with fire essentially talking about suicidal depression and CTE. The brawl was great, though, but I feel like it should’ve been saved for the go-home segment next week. And Bryan basically stood tall here, so it definitely indicates MJF retains.

Great and hilarious promo from Starks and Jericho. Naturally, Jericho says he knows what Starks was doing and that he wouldn’t fall for it, only to fall for it. Peter Avalon wanting to answer the open challenge only to get decimated was hilarious in itself, and honestly, while odd that the onus for the rematch is put on Starks when he won the first match, there is some logic to him being so determined after all the cheap shots. But at least it’ll be truly 1v1 after the “addendum.” And good promo from House of Black to call out The Elite. The Elite will surely step up to accept the title challenge, and we’re going to get an awesome match at Revolution.

Tony Khan and Adam Cole certainly made the announcement tonight sound bigger than it was. AEW All-Access actually being a thing is nice, certainly plenty of fans want to see that stuff. There’s an audience for that with WWE doing all their different behind-the-scenes not-kayfabe stuff, so AEW surely has that, too. But the better stuff is Cole getting his return match. He could face just about anyone in that return, and then he could easily set something up for Revolution if he’s feeling up for it. Good promo from Samoa Joe to respond to Wardlow, and great sneak attack from JB, even though Christian still stood tall. Pretty sure we get two Face wins there, Wardlow taking the TNT title and JB getting even with Christian once and for all.

Saraya VS Skye was a good match but a quick one, with the more important stuff being Ruby, Britt and Hayter showing up. Good promo from Hayter and of course they set up a Triple Threat. That will probably go about the way the previous one did, where Ruby doesn’t so much side with anyone as opposed to taking her own side. Whether or not she wins the title that way, who knows. And honestly, where is Jade Cargill in all this? Even if she were to just say she doesn’t care about where Saraya came from and all that, at least it’d be integrating stories together the way AEW used to do in the early days.

Really good tag match out of Acclaimed VS Firm, and of course the Gunns try to cost The Acclaimed. Great tag team battle royal, with a lot of stories easily being developed in it. But in the end, Triple J winning out makes a lot of sense since AEW wants them to revisit their feud with The Acclaimed. Calling upon that continuity makes it even more likely, or at least makes it seem even more logical, that FTR would make their return to AEW through the Casino Tag Battle Royal and get in on the title match. They’ve got beef with Austin & Colten, they’ve wanted those AEW World Tag titles back for a long time now, this could be the way to do it.

Alternately, Best Friends probably redeem themselves from almost winning here, they worry more about getting Walter Hauser’s Golden Globe back and Acclaimed get the belts back because of it. Either way, the fans being upset in El Paso will be reconciled by a big Face win on PPV.

My Score: 8.7/10

AEW International Championship: Will Ospreay VS MJF!

Like many of us, The Aerial Assassin despise the Wolf of Wrestling for how he disrespected and used Daniel Garcia just to send a message. But also like many, Ospreay at least acknowledges and respects that this form of Maxwell Jacob Friedman is his most dangerous. Will Ospreay be able to put down AEW’s Ultimate Scumbag? Or will even the #BillyGOAT not be on the level of the devil?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who ignites episode 250!

The bell rings and the fans cheer while the two stare down. Ospreay gets the fans even more fired up, and then MJF bails out. The fans boo but MJF just hops the railing. MJF splashes fans with their own water! MJF then lounges on the barriers, offers a fist bump, but the fans just flip him off. So MJF rips a fan’s sign up and throws it back! MJF goes back to the ring, tells fans to shut up, and he approaches Ospreay. Only to dodge and strut, then swivel the hips. The fans boo but Ospreay smirks, this is the MJF he knew he was getting. They tie up, MJF wrenches to hammerlock, but Ospreay headlocks.

MJF powers up to wrench and WRING Ospreay, but Ospreay handsprings through, and copies the strut! Ospreay shows he can swivel hips, too! The fans cheer but MJF sarcastically says Ospreay’s clever. The two tie up, MJF headlocks, but the fans sing, “OSPRAEY~ OSPREAY OSPREAY OSPREAY~!” MJF is annoyed, Ospreay powers up and out, then things speed up. Ospreay hurdles then drops down to trip MJF up! MJF ducks the Hidden Blade to hit a headlock takeover! Ospreay headscissors, MJF kips free, and roles reverse as Ospreay headlocks for the takeover. MJF headscissors but Ospreay kips free.

MJF ducks the Penalty Kick, avoids the standing moonsault, then bobs ‘n’ weaves to avoid Ospreay’s punches and kicks. MJF shoves Ospreay, Ospreay springboards but MJF avoids that, too! MJF runs in, Ospreay dodges to handspring, but MJF gets under! Ospreay superhero lands, and the fans are thunderous while MJF is stunned! The fans cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for making this the opener! MJF is annoyed, but he and Ospreay tie up. MJF says Ospreay pulled hair! The fans boo because of course MJF is lying. MJF and Ospreay reset, tie up, and again MJF claims hair pulling. But then MJF pulls hair!

MJF puts Ospreay on the ropes, the ref counts, and MJF lets off, to take a swing! Ospreay dodges and then LARIATS MJF up and out! The fans fire up and Ospreay builds speed, only for MJF to get away. MJF says not today, but then Ospreay just changes course and he FLIES out onto MJF! The fans fire up and high-five Ospreay before he puts MJF in. Ospreay HOTSHOTS MJF, runs and BOOTS, then he hits as BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Ospreay prepares the elbow and the fans fire up. Ospreay aims but MJF scrambles to the apron. The fans boo, Ospreay storms over, but MJF YANKS Ospreay into buckles!

MJF stomps a mudhole in, drags Ospreay up to whip and WRING him into the corner! Ospreay flounders and MJF soaks up the heat. Then he blows snot at the fans and mocks them! MJF goes back to Ospreay, clamps onto an arm, and the fans rally and duel as Ospreay endures. Ospreay fights up, throws body shots, then forearms. MJF throws Ospreay down by his hair! The fans boo but MJF just soaks it up. MJF says he didn’t do anything. Then he clamps on with a chinlock and grinds Ospreay down. Ospreay fights up to JAWBREAKER free! Ospreay runs but MJF kitchen sink knees! MJF hauls Ospreay up to back suplex, but Ospreay lands out!

Ospreay reels MJF in to back suplex, but MJF lands out! MJF back suplexes, Ospreay lands out, into a STUNNER! Cover, TWO! MJF’s annoyed his Osaka Street Cutter, or perhaps Long Island Street Cutter, didn’t end this, but he storms after Ospreay. Ospreay is on the apron, MJF reels him in, HEAT- NO! Ospreay shoves MJF away, but MJF slingshots Ospreay into another STUNNER! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and MJF is frustrated. The fans rally for Ospreay as he goes to the apron, but MJF storms over. MJF drags Ospreay in again, tries but Ospreay again denies him the Heatseeker! So MJF tries the slingshot, but Ospreay stops that!

Ospreay GAMANGIRIS MJF away, goes up a corner, and PIP PIP CHEERIO! Both men are down and the fans fire up! Ospreay rises but so does MJF. Ospreay fires haymakers on MJF first, then whips. MJF reverses but Ospreay CLOBBERS him! MJF bails out but Ospreay builds speed! Ospreay handsprings to SASUKE SPECIAL! The fans are thunderous but Ospreay takes a moment to check his ribs and catch his breath. Ospreay storms up on MJF, puts him in the ring, then goes up a corner. The fans fire up for the MOONSAULT, but MJF moves! Ospreay lands out, MOONSAULTS again, but MJF dodges again!

But the STANDING SHOOTING STAR hits! Cover, TWO! So Ospreay goes up and up to SKY TWISTER! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives the onslaught but Ospreay loads up that elbow! “This is Awesome!” as Ospreay aims again. MJF slowly rises, Ospreay runs up, but MJF bails out again! The fans continue to boo but Ospreay PLANCHAS! Down goes MJF and Ospreay high-fives more fans. And then Ospreay confiscates the timekeeper’s table! The fans are thunderous as Ospreay brings the furniture over to ringside. MJF hurries away into the ring now! Ospreay pursues as we see the fear on MJF’s face.

Ospreay CHOPS MJF in the corner! Ospreay stands MJF up to CHOP him again! The fans “WOO~” and Ospreay runs, but MJF pops him up to SUPERKICK him! MJF goes up, but Ospreay avoids the Panama City/Long Island Sunrise, but then MJF knees low! MJF reels Ospreay in but Ospreay powers out. Ospreay whips MJF to the corner, MJF goes up and over, but then MJF’s knee jams! Ospreay grabs that leg but it was a trap! MJF steps over and hits as STUFF PILEDRIVER!! Cover, TWO!! Ospreay survives and both men are down again. The fans rally up while both men stir, and MJF rises first.

MJF shows off that the leg is just fine, then does the Daniel Garcia dance just to mock him. MJF then drops an elbow on Ospreay’s leg. Ospreay CLUBS at MJF but MJF keeps the toehold. Ospreay fishhooks MJF and MJF lets go. Ospreay CHOPS, and CHOPS, then runs, but into a back drop! MJF leans on the ropes while he catches his breath, and the fans rally again. MJF storms back over, KNEES the leg, then smirks. MJF steps through, ties the legs up, and has the FIGURE FOUR! The fans “WOO~,” even as MJF SLAPS Ospreay! And SLAPS him! MJF thrashes the hold, but Ospreay endures. Ospreay’s shoulders are down, TWO as he sits back up!

Ospreay pries at the leglock, and the fans rally up as he works to turn things over. MJF fights that back, thrashes some more, but Ospreay grits his teeth. The fans rally harder and harder as Ospreay fights his way over, and he turns the hold onto MJF! MJF endures now, reaches out while shouting in pain, and he flails in order to turn things back onto Ospreay! The fans boo but Ospreay endures again. Ospreay drags MJF along, reaches out, and has the ROPEBREAK! The ref counts but MJF lets go at 4. MJF is frustrated but then he drags Ospreay up and to a corner. MJF CHOPS, takes a moment, then CHOPS again!

MJF wrenches, whips, but Ospreay can’t even make it all the way! MJF smirks while the ref checks Ospreay. Ospreay shakes out the leg, refusing to admit defeat. MJF storms over, stands Ospreay up, and CHOPS! Ospreay hobbles, so MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s back! MJF whips, Ospreay barely makes it to ropes! MJF wants after Ospreay like a shark with blood in the water, but Ospreay sits on the apron. MJF tells off the fans cheering Ospreay, but Ospreay is somehow still in this. So MJF CLAWS Ospreay’s face! The fans boo but MJF soaks it up. Ospreay throws body shots and haymakers! Ospreay CHOPS and MJF wobbles!

Ospreay CHOPS again, MJF flails more. Ospreay snarls, runs, but MJF CHOP BLOCKS the legs! MJF covers, TWO! MJF frowns but he stomps Ospreay’s leg. MJF then stands Ospreay up to CLUB him on the neck!

The fans fire up again while Ospreay again clutches the leg.

Ospreay rises, but MJF KNEES the knee! Then MJF calls his shot! MJF suplexes, but STUN DOG MILLIONAIRE hits first! MJF wobbles around, Ospreay calls his shot now! Springboard, OSCUTTER!! But MJF flops all the way to ropes! Ospreay has to crawl his way over, and MJF flops to the floor! MJF’s ring awareness is strong but Ospreay pursues. Ospreay drags MJF up to put him in the ring, and then onto the apron. Ospreay uses a corner to go up and APRON OSCUTTER FLOP as MJF steps back! Ospreay writhes, signaling to his arm, and the ref hurries to check. MJF may have gotten lucky here, as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

The ref has Ospreay go around the way but MJF is in pursuit! MJF shows no mercy as he grabs that bad arm, and RAMS Ospreay into steel steps! MJF stands on the steps to soak up all the heat, as well as talk some trash on Ospreay. It’s certainly in the vain of MJF is who AEW needs, not Ospreay. MJF drags Ospreay up and into the ring, then takes his time to taunt fans over the table. He flips the fans off, he isn’t gonna do what they want. MJF then goes back to Ospreay, grabs the bad arm, and he stands on it, to then STOMP it! MJF soaks up more heat as he paces around Ospreay, then clamps onto the arm again.

Ospreay endures the mounted armlock, and he fights to his feet. Now Ospreay pulls hair, but MJF throws Ospreay down by the arm. MJF grinds that shoulder but Ospreay still endures. The fans rally as Ospreay fights, stands up, and throws body shots. Dynamite returns to single picture as Ospreay ROCKS MJF with forearms. Ospreay whips, MJF reverses but Ospreay handsprings, only for MJF to KICK the bad arm! Ospreay clutches the elbow, but MJF hauls him up! Double underhooks, for a SHOULDER BUSTER! And then it’s back to the armlock! Ospreay rolls through, but MJF ducks the roundhouse to pump handle!

MJF adds a half nelson, MADE IN JAPAN! Or perhaps, Made in Long Island? Cover, TWO!! Ospreay knows that move from his rivalry with Shingo Takagi. The fans rally while both men are down again, “This is Awesome!” Ospreay and MJF slowly rise, MJF storms over, and he whips. Ospreay holds ropes to stop that, so MJF CLUBS the arm! MJF makes the pecs dance, whips again, but Ospreay reverses. Ospreay then dodges MJF to handspring and NEURALIZER KICK! Both men are down again and the fans stay fired up! Ospreay sits up first, then both men stand. Ospreay BOOTS MJF’s haymaker to then ENZIGIRI!

MJF wobbles, Ospreay wrenches an arm, and Ospreay CHOPS MJF off his feet! Ospreay drags MJF up to wrench and CHOP him down again! Ospreay stands MJF one more time, to CHOP, CHOP, and- NO, MJF blocks the chop! MJF WRINGS the arm, Ospreay cartwheels through! ENZIGIRI! Torture rack, TOWER HACKER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives and the fans can’t believe it! The fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” but there’s still more show that has to happen! MJF crawls to the apron, Ospreay stalks him. MJF flops to the floor, but he’s near that table… Ospreay goes to the floor and brings MJF up.

MJF throat chops Ospreay! MJF runs away into the crowd, but Ospreay pursues! Ospreay fires hands on MJF even as MJF goes up the bleachers. Ospreay grabs MJF, bends him against railing, and offers free shots. A little girl starts punching MJF in the ribs! MJF flips her family off but Ospreay CLUBS away on MJF! Ospreay fist bumps the girl and drags MJF back up. Ospreay ROCKS MJF with a right and follows him down the stairs. Ospreay CHOPS MJF to keep him moving, but MJF takes a detour into the seats. So Ospreay makes MJF take a seat and punches down hands! The fans count along, Ospreay winds up, and hits TEN!

MJF flounders around, Ospreay shows that there’s one guy still wearing an MJF Kangaroo Kick shirt, and then pursues MJF. MJF pokes Ospreay right in the eyes! MJF CLUBS Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks MJF! Ospreay SMACKS MJF off the trash can! The fans fire up and Ospreay DUMPS MJF into the trash can! MJF kicks and flails but Ospreay BOOTS the can! MJF falls out, stumbles away, and Ospreay pursues. They finally return to ringside, and Ospreay refreshes the count that was never happening anyway. Ospreay then drags MJF over to the table, punches him onto it, then goes up the steel steps.

Ospreay then goes up the corner and fans are thunderous already! Ospreay aims, but MJF hurries off the table. The fans boo and Ospreay sighs, but Ospreay hops down to go after MJF. But MJF gut wrenches! Ospreay victory rolls, TWO! MJF has the victory roll, TWO! Ospreay has it, TWO! MJF is up, Ospreay gets around and hops on, POISON-RANA! MJF flounders to a corner, Ospreay runs up, but MJF pops him up! Another SUPERKICK as Ospreay is upside-down! MJF goes up, LONG ISLAND SUNRISE!! Cover, TWO!?! The fans are electric as Ospreay survives another hard shot! Ospreay then goes to the apron and then the floor.

MJF pursues, and we return to the table. MJF puts Ospreay on the table and then goes up the apron. The fans rally as MJF actually climbs the corner. MJF reaches the top, but then Ospreay slips off the table! The fans still boo, they want that table to see some action. MJF hops down, talks smack on Ospreay, then CHOPS him. MJF BITES Ospreay’s arm! The fans boo and tell MJF he’s sick! The ref counts, MJF lets off, but he then ROCKS Ospreay with a haymaker. MJF again mocks Daniel Garcia, even asking if Garcia has feeling in his arms again. MJF then whips Ospreay hard into railing! Ospreay almost ends up in the front row!

MJF makes Ospreay take a seat, and he CLAWS at Ospreay’s face! MJF refreshes the ring count, then runs in at Ospreay, to BOOT Ospreay against railing! MJF hops up to soak up more heat, then he refreshes with some water. That he then splashes at fans. MJF stalks Ospreay back to the table, refreshes the count, and then asks, “Ospreay who?” MJF stands Ospreay up to whip, but Ospreay goes up onto the railing, to OSCUTTER to the floor! The fans fire up again while both men are down! Ospreay clutches the bad leg and the bad arm, but he manages to rise up and put MJF in. Ospreay then swings, but into MJF’s dragon sleeper!

But Ospreay flips things around! The fans cheer, as Ospreay hits CROSS RHODES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives, but Ospreay storms after him in a corner. MJF uses the ref as a shield, then he pokes Ospreay in the eyes! MJF goes up to DOUBLE STOMP the bad arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, hammerlock and lift, DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Ospreay survives and the fans continue to rally behind him. MJF is frustrated but he pursues Ospreay to the apron. MJF drags Ospreay through ropes, and HEAT- NO! Ospreay throws MJF away, MJF’s leg “jams,” and Ospreay takes aim. Ospreay springboards but MJF hits ropes to trip him up!

Ospreay gets stuck up there, MJF goes up to LEAPING LARIAT!! Cover, TWO?!? MJF is beside himself as Ospreay survives again! MJF stalks Ospreay to the apron, drags him up, and gut wrenches! The fans freak out but Ospreay flails and kicks! Ospreay turns things around onto MJF, but MJF KICKS Ospreay! MJF then suplexes, but Ospreay slips free! Ospreay waistlocks but the arm won’t let him lift! So Ospreay SUPERKICKS MJF instead! MJF wobbles, Ospreay reels him in, and tucks him for an APRON STYLES CLASH!!! Both men fall to the floor and Little Rock is losing its collective mind right now!

Ospreay drags MJF up and into the ring, covers, TWO!!!! MJF survives but Ospreay is too tired to be upset. Ospreay just rises up, brings MJF to his feet, and reels him in. Even with one arm, Ospreay hits a LAST RIDE!! Cover, TWO!! MJF reminds us why he was once the longest reigning AEW World Champion while Dynamite goes back to picture in picture.

Ospreay shakes out the arms, but Doc Sampson is called over to check. Doc checks that arm, from lifting to turning. Then Doc checks with Ospreay if he wants to do “that,” and Ospreay says go for it. Doc YANKS Ospreay’s arm to pop it back in place! Ospreay clutches the arm again but it seems that did the trick. Ospreay has the fans fired up again, and he drags MJF up for Kawada Kicks! Ospreay stands over MJF while Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns and Ospreay calls his shot. MJF rises, and he spins Ospreay around to BITE Ospreay’s face! The fans boo, MJF runs, but Ospreay HIDDEN BLADES!! Cover, TWO!!! MJF survives a shot to the face but Ospreay roars! The fans are thunderous as MJF sits up, into a BUZZSAW! MULE KICK! OSC- NO, MJF stops the cutter to gut wrench, and TOMBSTONE!! Cover, TWO?!?! Ospreay survives again and the fans again cheer “A E DUB! A E DUB!” for giving us this instant classic. MJF snarls, and he uses wrist tape to CHOKE Ospreay! The ref reprimands, MJF lets off, and MJF goes to the corner with Ospreay.

MJF wrenches the bad arm, whips him hard into the corner, and Ospreay falls. The fans boo but MJF grins as he rises up. MJF storms over to Ospreay, stands him up and wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! MJF whips again, and harder! Ospreay falls back, MJF flexes, but the fans boo. MJF mocks the United Empire crown then says shove it. MJF drags Ospreay up, whips him corner to corner again, but Ospreay reveres! MJF tumbles up, comes back, and Ospreay CHOPS! And CHOPS! But MJF blocks one again to WRING the arm again! Ospreay writhes, MJF leans on ropes, and then MJF runs in. Ospreay DUMPS MJF out hard!

The fans fire up and Ospreay goes to the apron, only for MJF to YANK him down! MJF puts Ospreay in the ring and says that’s why he’s the smartest wrestler in AEW. But not the wisest as Ospreay DIVING HIDDEN BLADES MJF!! Both men fall to the floor and the fans are thunderous again! Ospreay rises, a ring count starts, and fans count along. We hit 5 of 10, Ospreay puts MJF in at 6. Ospreay goes up the corner, and he BLINDSIDE CHEERIOS! Cover, TWO!! MJF survives again but Ospreay doesn’t get frustrated. Ospreay goes to the apron and climbs up the corner, but MJF again hits ropes! Ospreay lands bad on the corner this time!

MJF climbs up, throws hands, then goes to the very top. SUPER- NO! Ospreay stops the Steiner with one good arm! The fans fire up as he tucks MJF in, for a SUPER STYLES CLASH!! But Ospreay struggles to turn MJF over for the cover! ROPEBREAK!! Ospreay is frustrated now but there’s nothing he can do about that. Ospreay drags MJF up but MJF HOTSHOTS the arm! MJF reels Ospreay in, for an APRON HEATSEEKER!! Ospreay flops to the floor, and MJF looks at the table…! MJF puts Ospreay on the table, hurries back to the corner, and MJF climbs! The fans are going nuts already as MJF SUPER MACHO ELBOWS THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

The fans lose their minds all over again as MJF goes for broke! The ref checks both men, and they’re somehow okay to continue! “This is Awesome!” as we once again go picture in picture.

MJF flounders his way back to ringside and drags himself in. But Champion’s Advantage won’t let him win the title like this! Ospreay is still on the outside as we pass 5 of 10, and he starts to stir around 7. MJF then springs out after Ospreay to get him back in! Seems MJF was just resting, and he shouts about something, probably about how he’s better. MJF stands, paces around, then stomps Ospreay’s legs, then Dynamite goes to break.

Dynamite 250 returns again, and MJF has Ospreay in a Cobra Twist. MJF sneakily grabs the ropes to add on leverage! The ref looks but MJF lets go in time. Ospreay still endures, and MJF digs a knuckle into the ribs. MJF then again sneaks a grab at the ropes! The ref gets closer to catching him but the fans tell on MJF! MJF tells them all to shut up! MJF still grabs for ropes, but the ref sees it this time! MJF says he’s not doing nothing! The ref KICKS that arm! Ospreay then hip tosses free! Both men are down and the fans fire up again! MJF gets up, Ospreay reels him into a package, TWO! Schoolboy, TWO!

A spin and backslide, TWO!! MJF whips, Ospreay swings but MJF gets under! Ospreay leaps, into the POWER BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!!! The fans are electric again as both men are down! The fans sing for Ospreay as he crawls to a corner. MJF sits up then rises up to soak up heat. MJF hits the kangaroo stance?! The fans are torn, surely he isn’t serious. But then MJF runs up, KANGAROO- NO! Ospreay catches MJF!

Ospreay CATAPULTS MJF, but MJF lands safe on the corner! Only for Ospreay to tuck him in and CHEEKY NANDOS! MJF is still stuck so Ospreay goes up after him, for a SUPER POISON RANA! MJF lands out?! MJF shows he can do what Ospreay does and the fans lose their minds! LARIAT in the corner, then MJF hoists Ospreay up top. MJF goes up and up and smirks, gives some thrusts, then SUPER STEINERS! Ospreay lands out!! Ospreay shows MJF how it’s really done and MJF is in disbelief! Both men turn around, MJF swings but Ospreay goes Matrix! MJF returns the favor to dodge Ospreay!

Little Rock gives a standing ovation for this AEW Match of the Year contender! MJF crawls to a corner, Ospreay pursues. Ospreay puts MJF up top, ROCKS him, but has to slap some fire into himself. Ospreay goes up top, but MJF fires body shots!

MJF gut wrenches Ospreay, but Ospreay kicks free! Ospreay then slingshots back up, to SUPER OSCUTTER!! And HIDDEN BLADE!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Ospreay can’t believe it and now he’s mad! Ospreay throws off the elbow pad as Little Rock is erupting! MJF sits up, but DUCKS the Hidden Blade! Ospreay tumbles but MJF is also down, too tired to sit back up. Ospreay crawls his way back over, sits MJF up, but MJF SPITS at him!! Ospreay gets REALLY mad now! MJF panics, Ospreay HEADBUTTS him! Ospreay reels MJF in, the fans say do it, and Ospreay says yes! Underhooks, one minute warning, but Ospreay isn’t sure which Storm Attack to use!

Ospreay hauls MJF up, to STORM…! NO, Ospreay stops short of the driver! They fans boo, they want him to end MJF but Ospreay says he’s not like that anymore. Ospreay drags MJF up , MJF SHOVES Ospreay into the ref!! The ref goes down, we’re under 20 seconds! Ospreay hurries over to MJF, DYNAMITE DIAMOND RING PUNCH!!! Cover, MJF WINS!!!!

Winner: MJF, by pinfall (NEW AEW International Champion)

There was literally two seconds left, but MJF pulls it off!! The Wolf of Wrestling proves he’s still just a lowdown dirty snake, but he’s the snake that stole the gold from the #BillyGOAT. Medics help both guys get icepacks, water and oxygen, and MJF rises like a zombie to celebrate himself. The Scumbag may have survived The Aerial Assassin, but will he be ready to go All In against The Bastard?

 

Backstage interview Mark Briscoe & The Acclaimed.

Arkady Aura is with the Sussex County Chicken, as well as Max Caster & Anthony Bowens, and says they asked for this time to talk with each other. Caster says that’s right, because they know Mr. Briscoe is on Team AEW for Blood & Guts. They also know that Team AEW needs a couple more partners, and the only way Mark gets “The Best Wrestler Alive” on his side is when Caster & Bowens join the team together. Plus, The Acclaimed just beat The Bucks a couple weeks ago, they have their number, this is a no brainer! Bowens says that’s right! And they’re also this close to becoming AEW World Tag Team Champions once again, they want a piece of The Bucks’ asses!

Plus, when you think AEW, you think The Acclaimed, because EVERYONE loves The Acclaimed! So they want in! Mark says that’s right! They had his back a couple weeks ago, so as far as he’s concerned, The Acclaimed is in, baby! But Mark’s not the only man calling the shots on this, if you understand what he’s saying. In steps AEW World Champion, Swerve Strickland. Swerve says listen! They’ve been through their fair share of squabbles, so he knows what Acclaimed is all about. Swerve’s also been in battles with The Briscoes, so he knows Dem Boys are real tough people. There is nobody better to go to war with than those you’ve battled against.

Therefore, “y’all ready to get violent?” The Acclaimed say hell yeah! Hands in, and Mark warns The Elite that Team AEW is coming for them! LET’S GO, BABY!! Bowens & Caster follow Briscoe out, Swerve nods, will this team be ready to rip apart The Elite? Will Swerve be ready for The Rainmaker later on tonight in the main event? Or will Kazuchika Okada rain on Swerve’s House and wash it away?

 

“Big Bill” Morrissey is in the ring.

The Redwood introduces to the “seeds, saplings, roots and most importantly, branches,” the Learning Tree, Chris Jericho! The “For The World” Champion is accompanied by “Bad Apple” Bryan Keith as he makes his way out here, waving to Little Rock. The fans boo but Jericho still smiles. “Hi, guys~! Y’know, Little Rock, you need to take a few lessons from The Learning Tree. This city is such a high-crime, violent city, 1,533 crimes for ever 100,000 people, you can do better than that! But let’s talk about Dynamite 250 for AEW, I was on the very first Dynamite, and I’ve been on almost every single one since.

“And the ones that I missed, the Branches were so angry, cards and letters filed in, so I made a promise, I’m never gonna miss another Dynamite again.” The fans boo but Jericho says he’ll be on every one, even until episode 500! It’s like he’s said: When you listen to The Learning Tree, good things happen. And when you don’t, people get hurt, dammit! This isn’t right! Jericho is begging us all to listen to him! Look to those who haven’t. Shibata’s arm, Hook getting that fireball to his face, that’s horrible. And then Samoa Joe is literally driven through a wall because he wasn’t listening to The Learning Tree!

Jericho is begging us, this has to stop! People are getting hurt! At this point, everyone should realize they need to listen to Jericho. Surely everyone knows the teachings of Jericho are so important. Who would be crazy enough not to listen? Who would be psychotic enough not to use the teachings of Jericho? Who would be maniacal enough to- IS THAT MINORU SUZUKI!? Jericho is very worried seeing the Meanest Man in the World returning here to AEW! Suzuki has a paper in his hands, but what could it be? Suzuki goes to the ring and fans get fired up. Suzuki waits, and he steps in at “KAZE NI NARE~!”

Suzuki stares Jericho down while the fans cheer him on. Suzuki looks at the FTW Championship, then he snatches Jericho’s mic. “Next week…” Suzuki holds up the paper, Keith snatches it, and Keith reads it for Jericho. This is an official order from AEW management. The Redwood AND Bad Apple are banned from ringside for Jericho VS Suzuki, an FTW Championship match! Suzuki then HEADBUTTS Jericho down! Bill goes to help Jericho and Keith backs up. Suzuki grins and waves, “Bye, guys~!” Jericho looks to be fearing for his life now that he knows there is someone crazy enough to ignore his teachings. Will the King of Pancrase cut down The Learning Tree?

 

The Elite speak.

Nicholas asks Matthew and Okada if they heard all that. The Elite heard what The Acclaimed, Mark Briscoe and Swerve Strickland had to say, and it is ridiculous! What pisses them off even more is that The Acclaimed think they’re just gonna become two-time AEW Tag Team Champions. Not on their watch! Matt says what those guys need is a reminder about just who the hecc they are! This is THE Elite, the greatest team in AEW. And after next week, they’ll have all the gold and all the power! Nick points out it won’t be all the gold. Swerve is still AEW World Champion. Well, Matt says after what they do to Swerve, that title might just end up vacated.

Because see, they’re dealing with the most dangerous people in the business. They’re going up against The Young Bucks, the greatest tag team ever. They’re dealing with the Continental Champion, The Rainmaker, Kazuchika Okada. They’re dealing with the unpredictable Scapegoat, the TNT Champion, Jack Perry. And Matt’s favorite part: making his return to The Elite, Hangman Adam Page! And oh, in steps the TBS Champion, Mercedes Mone! The CEO says hi to the EVPs, and she thanks them for banning Britt Baker from even being backstage tonight so that she can’t ruin Dynamite 250 for them.

Matt says let’s just say there’s no drama coming from The DMD to the CEO, via the EVPs. Okada whispers something to Matt and Matt asks if Mone will do the dance for them. Oh, her CEO shuffle? Of course! C E O! C E O! Ok, got to go~! Mone heads out, Okada wipes himself down. He claims it’s just really hot back here. Matt & Nick say okay, sure. But will The CEO still be golden like The Elite? Or will she end up the Native Beast’s next meal?

 

AEW TBS Championship: Mercedes Mone VS Nyla Rose!

Well, as we just heard, there will be no Britt Baker anywhere tonight because that is how bad she got under The CEO’s skin. Mone even made sure this Open Challenge would not allow Britt to answer it, so in steps a different former AEW Women’s World Champion. Will Mone find there are threats all over the AEW roster? Or will she still be making that double champion type bank?

The introductions are made, the teal title is raised, and we see who is truly the Face of TBS!

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally and duel, the two tie up, and Mone tries but she can’t push Nyla back at all! Nyla puts Mone in a corner, Mone goes up the ropes, but the ref counts. Nyla lets off but Mone scuffs her. Nyla is annoyed, but she mocks Mone’s dance. Nyla runs up, Mone leaps over, but then Nyla runs up again. Mone gets around, waistlocks, but Nyla THROWS her away! The fans rally, Nyla storms up but Mone drop toeholds her onto ropes! Mone CLUBS and stomps away on Nyla. Mone drags Nyla up to stomp into a corner, but the ref counts. Mone digs her boots in, but lets off at 4.

Mone backs off to then storm back up and drag Nyla up. Mone talks trash, but Nyla reels her in! Nyla suplexes, and she holds Mone up, does a squat or two, but Mone slips free! Mone CLUBS Nyla, runs, but Nyla scoops her! Nyla stops the tilt-o-whirl, and shouts, “Have you lost your mind?!” Nyla suplexes to hang Mone out to dry! Nyla KNEES Mone, goes to the corner and climbs, and the fans fire up for the GUILLOTINE KNEE DROP! Nyla drags Money to the cover, TWO!! Mone survives and Nyla is frustrated, but Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Nyla drags Mone up, ELBOWS her down, then she drags Mone into a backbreaker rack across her knee! Mone endures, even as Nyla pushes her down! Mone fights free with kicks, then fires forearms. Nyla ROCKS Mone right back! Nyla then torture racks Mone to thrash her around! Mone endures, slips down, but Nyla blocks the arm-drag! Nyla whips Mone into the corner, then runs in, only for Mone to move! Nyla POSTS herself, then Mone goes to the apron. Mone BOOTS Nyla into the post! Nyla falls back, Mone soaks up the cheers and jeers, then she sits Nyla down. METEORA! Mone drags Nyla to a cover, TWO!

Mone is upset so she rains down fists! The ref reprimands, Mone lets off to swagger around. Mone stalks Nyla, stomps her around, then bumps her off buckles. Mone stands Nyla up for forearm after forearm, then she climbs up to rain down fists! Mone goes to nine, soaks up the cheers and jeers, but Nyla brings Mone off the corner! Mone RANAS Nyla away, hurries to run, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO! Mone is frustrated but Nyla’s a former champion for a reason. Mone drags Nyla up, and clamps on with a COBRA TWIST! Nyla endures, even as Mone puts on the pressure. Mone ELBOWS Nyla in the ribs, but Nyla powers out with a hip toss!

Mone stands, blocks a boot and KNEES Nyla back. Mone runs, slips around, and has a SLEEPER! Dynamite 250 returns to single picture while Nyla starts to fade! The fans rally, Nyla fights up, and she swings Mone around into a facelock! Nyla snap suplexes Money away! The fans fire up while Mone flounders to a corner. Nyla snarls, rises up, and runs in to back body block! And then LARIAT! Mone staggers back up, Nyla runs in at the corner and SPLASHES! Mone sits down, Nyla fires up and Little Rock is with her! CANNONBALL! Nyla drags Mone to a cover, TWO!! Mone survives, showing why she’s been champion all over the world.

Nyla snarls, and she goes up the corner. Mone stands to kick the leg! Nyla falls, Mone goes up and up to VADER BOMB! Nyla sputters, Mone gets moving, BOOT WASH! Mone pushes Nyla, goes up the corner, and she METEORAS again! Cover, TWO!! Nyla survives and Mone can’t believe it! Mone drags Nyla up, turns her, but Nyla’s too big to Gory Especial! Nyla RAMS Mone into the corner, the fans duel, but Nyla puts Mone up top. Nyla then climbs up to have Mone’s arm. But Mone fires elbows on Nyla! Mone adjusts position, and SUPER BULLDOGS! Mone then brings out a glove, all to mock Britt!

Mone puts on her glove, spells out “C! E! O!” RINGS OF SATURN, and then the LOCKJAW!! Nyla BITES Mone’s fingers!! That’s what Mone gets! But then DRIBBLES Nyla’s face off the mat, and puts on the STATEMENT MAKER! Nyla taps, Mone wins!

Winner: Mercedes Mone, by submission (still AEW TBS Champion)

Mone may not be able to do it like The DMD, but she still wins out and holds up both belts. Mone then spots a fan with a sign, “DMD > CEO,” and she snatches that sign! Mone RIPS the sign up, and the fan wearing the Sting mask is upset. That fan pie faces Mone!? Because surprise! It’s BRITT BAKER!! The DMD suck into the show and The CEO is running for her life!! Security surrounds Mone to shield her from Britt! The guards then swarm Britt, and Mone is safe, for now. Will Britt have her Wembley Stadium moment with Mone whether Mone likes it or not?

 

Jack Perry speaks.

The Scapegoat flips a coin, then tells Darby Allin, “You wanted to get my attention? Well, you’ve got it now. All you had to do was ask. Did you really have to go and hurt Brandon Cutler? Maybe what I mean to say is, do you think I give a s*it about Brandon Cutler?” He is standing OVER Brandon! And then THROWS him through a door! Jack SMACKS Brandon off a boiler, then tells Darby to come find Jack tonight. Then Jack will show Darby what real sacrifice looks like. Will The Relentless One get that fight with the TNT Champion after all?

 

Toni Storm is here!

The Leading Lady is back so soon after how brutally Mariah May betrayed her? Wait, no… That’s Mariah May taking her cosplay to a new level. The understudy is now portraying the part of AEW Women’s World Champion as she menacingly makes her way down to the ring. The fans boo the protege for how she did Toni Storm dirty, but Mariah grabs a mic for herself. The fans chant for Toni but Mariah sighs. “Let’s be honest. You all saw it coming. Everybody saw it coming, except Toni Storm.” The fans boo but Mariah says that woman is so desperate for the spotlight, she didn’t realize she was giving it all away.

“The question shouldn’t be ‘why,’ the question should be, ‘Mariah, what took you so long?’ Honestly, I didn’t think it would last this long either. But it was so… easy! And I was having so much fun stringing her along, I just wanted to see how far it would go. But then, I saw Wembley. And I thought, ‘Why take the old horse out back when I can kill it in front of as many people as possible?” The fans boo more but Mariah says she’s been Toni Storm, and now she can be so much more! Fans chant “We Want Toni!” and Mariah smirks. Mariah tells Toni not to worry, she still loves her. In fact, she’s never loved her more than when Toni was on her knees, screaming and crying Mariah’s name. “That was your greatest performance.”

As for Mariah’s greatest performance, that will be at All In! The fans boo more but Mariah says now, AEW is All About Mariah! Mariah then lies back on the mat to revel in it just like Toni would. But will Toni make sure Mariah suffers far worse than what she gave Toni?

 

AEW shares post show footage from Collision.

The Bang Bang Gang returned backstage but they’re asked about being stripped of the Unified World Trios Championships. Juice said hold on, they ain’t been stripped of nothing. Whoever wants these belts will have to pry them out of their cold, dead hands! But then Christopher Daniels and a couple refs appear backstage, and the Fallen Angel knows it isn’t the most popular decision, nor is it fair to the champs, but that’s the rules of AEW. Austin says he isn’t taking these belts! Daniels says it’s either that or they’re suspended and they don’t get a chance to fight for them against The Patriarchy.

Colten says fine, take ’em. Take all nine belts! Daniels gathers them up and Austin tells Christian Cage that they are not scared of a guy with a daddy fetish, some TikTok kid, a stepmom straight outta Brazzers, and a giant lizard! Juice says what will happen is The Collision Cowboys come home, and they come home with their little hardware homies! And if you’re not down with that, they’ve got two words for ya: GUNS UP! Will Rock Hard Robinson, Fully Cocked Colten, and… Austin make sure Captain Charisma and his “sons” never touch the gold? Or can no one stop The Patriarchy from taking over AEW?

 

Swerve Strickland w/ Prince Nana VS Kazuchika Okada!

It is a Champion VS Champion showdown to close this milestone episode, but no titles are on the line. However, Blood & Guts is just next week, and each side is looking for momentum. Will Little Rock belong to Swerve’s House? Or will The Rainmaker prove he’s the top champion in AEW?

But then Jack Perry shows up to CLOBBER Caster! But then here comes Mark Briscoe! Chicken DECKS Matt, DECKS Jack, and DECKS Nick! Team AEW stands tall together, but Jack comes back for more!

Jack RAMS Darby into railing, Mark returns to help Darby! Security finally separates the factions, which is just fine by The Bucks! But will nothing stop Team AEW from destroying this corrupt Elite once and for all?


My Thoughts:

Now this was an awesome episode of Dynamite. They only advertised three matches, and it turns out that’s all we needed. Ospreay VS MJF was made the opener so they could just go off and give us almost an hour of their best stuff. It kinda makes some PPV matches feel lesser now, but hey, a match of the year candidate is still a match of the year candidate, no matter if it’s TV or PPV. MJF winning out surprised me, but he did cheat so that protects Ospreay. I was hoping for Ospreay VS Pac at All In, but I suppose “The Scumbag VS The Bastard” makes for some fun build. And with how much MJF was taunting Garcia, this has to mean Garcia shows up at All In to go after MJF.

TV Time with Jericho was properly short because we can’t actually drag the show to a screeching halt after how awesome Ospreay VS MJF was. As Jericho started listing qualities like “crazy” and “maniacal,” I just felt Suzuki showing up. Suzuki getting his FTW Championship match with Jericho next week is great, but I’m still thinking Jericho retains. Now, while Keith & Bill are banned from ringside, nothing is stopping Hook from showing up. Hook could go after Jericho after he retains, and that sets up Jericho VS Hook for All In. Which would be interesting because that makes it back to back All In shows for Hook and this FTW Championship.

Good promo from The Bang Bang Gang with Daniels, but like, so filler. Who needed to see them hand over the belts? Or rather, why couldn’t they have figured out to do that during Collision? Very good promo from Mariah May where she completes her transformation into Toni Storm’s replacement. She even phrased it “All About Mariah” to nod how this has been All About Eve the movie, in wrestling form. The fans kept going “What?” just cuz she was taking things slowly, which is rude, but I do feel she could’ve been faster about it. She was definitely going for something with her pacing, but maybe she was also just filling for a little more time. Toni will surely have a response next week or something, though.

Very good promo from Acclaimed with Mark Briscoe and Swerve to establish the Acclaimed joining Team AEW, and very good response promo from The Elite to call them out on it. Though, what a weird detail for Okada to be a Mone simp. He’s married for crying out loud! But that aside, Mone is still tangentially a part of The Elite, and she had a very good match with Nyla tonight. Mone of course found the way to win, but I do appreciate Britt gives us a Sting shoutout by wearing the Sting mask before revealing she was here. Mone running scared was pretty funny, and yeah duh, this match is happening at All In.

In relation, very good promo from Jack Perry, even if poor Brandon had to get beat up again. Jack calling Darby out was good foreshadowing for Darby’s own Sting tribute, and I figured last week that Darby Allin was going to be Team AEW for Blood & Guts. Great main event from Swerve VS Okada that The Bucks of course had to “ruin” to save Okada from a legit loss. At the same time, this keeps either champion from owing the other a title match so close to All In. Great brawl to give us the full 5v5, Blood & Guts is going to be some wild stuff, and it can definitely go either with so many champions involved this time. However, as Mark Briscoe is the only one whose rivalry is NOT in Blood & Guts, he probably takes the loss for Team AEW.

My Score: 9.1/10

Winner: Konosuke Takeshita, by pinfall

Callis is calling it “The T Trigger,” as if to poke fun at Kenny Omega. But whatever the move’s name, it was a big win for Takeshita. Callis joins Takeshita in the ring to celebrate, but Callis also has a mic. “I have something important to say.” The fans boo even more now. Callis says “This young man right here, he wrestled the match of a lifetime against Takeshita. C’mon, kid.” Tommy sits up and Callis introduces himself. And he says that was a tremendous effort. 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. The fans boo but Callis says Bad News and Dynamite Kid would want this! So let’s seal the deal with a handshake! Welcome to the Don Callis Family! The fans boo and say “NO! NO!

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?

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender tot he ROH World Championship)

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?

 

Nyla Rose VS Ava Lawless!

The Native Beast is back in AEW, looking to return to the top of the food chain. Will Ava just be an appetizer? Or will “The Hellion” make Nyla lose her appetite?

Ava runs, ducks Nyla’s lariat and wrenches, but Nyla stuffs the STO! Nyla choke grips and CHOKE SLAMS Ava! The fans fire up as Nyla storms around. Ava stands up, Nyla SPLASHES her in the corner!

Nyla fires up, reels Ava back in, for the BEAST BOMB! Cover, Nyla wins!

Ring rust is not a thing with Nyla Rose, and she barely broke a sweat here. Will The Native Beast make ever women’s champion in AEW and ROH her prey?

 

Top Flight w/ Action Andretti VS Anthony Ogogo & Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor!

ROH just saw Darius & Dante Martin team up with Action Andretti to take on Shane Taylor Promotions in full, and that match was won by Shane Taylor Promotions. But now it will be 2v2, will it still be “Rumble, Bad Man, Rumble?” Or can Top Flight take flight to climb up the tag team rankings?

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?

 

Skye Blue VS Harley Cameron w/ Saraya!

A new look for the Chicago Skye, but her attitude is just as bitter as ever. Meanwhile, The Outcasts’ Aussie of anarchy is as bonkers as ever! With all this talk of championships, who puts themselves in the conversation with a big win here in Calgary?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Harley and Skye both pull hair, and then they let off. They both dodge the other, Saraya distracts Skye, and Harley rolls Skye up! TWO, Skye kicks Harley low! Skye whips, Harley reverses then runs in to SPLASH! Harley digs her boot into Skye, shrieks as she does, but lets off as the ref counts. Skye snarls and she puts Harley in the corner to return the favor! The ref counts, Skye lets off at 4, then Skye whips corner to corner. Skye runs in, but Harley slips free! Harley ROUNDHOUSES Skye away, goes up and slingshots in to LARIAT! Harley then ELBOWS away on Skye!

Harley rallies the fans, and ELBOWS again! Naughty cover, TWO! Skey flounders but Harley stalks her. Harley pushes Skye, climbs up, and she rains down fists! But Skye slips free, tucks Harley in, and CHEEKY NANDOS! That had some sauce on it! Saraya says Harley is making a mess! Skye BOOTS Harley out of the ring! Saraya gets in Skye’s face again but Harley reels Skye in, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Harley dribbles Skye off the floor, the ref reprimands, and Harley lets off. Harley steps away and Saraya talks trash while Collision goes picture in picture.

Saraya talks trash even though we can’t hear her. Harley CLUBS Skye, pushes her against the apron, and CHOPS! Skye sputters, but she SLAPS Harley back! Harley SMACKS Skye off the apron, pushes her into the ring, then storms in after her. Harley drags Skye up to whip and ELBOW her down! Cover, TWO! Harley stalks Skye to ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Harley lets off, but Harley also argues with the ref so Saraya can fire off knees on Skye! Saraya gets away with all that, then Harley scuffs Skey. Harley stomps Skye, drags her up, but Skye fires body shots! Harley ROCKS Skye, ROCKS Her again, but Skye ROCKS her back!

Skye fires off shots, whips, but Harley reverses. Harley runs Skye over, covers, TWO! Saraya coaches Harley and she looms over Skye. Harley drags Skye up, but Skey fires more body shots. Skye ROCKS Harley again, but Harley ducks ‘n’ dodge! DOUBLE LARIATS take both ladies down, and Collision goes to break.

Collision returns and Skye runs in at the ropes to SHINING WIZARD! She snapmares Harley hard, then runs up. Skye blocks a kick, KNEES Harley, and hits a TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO! Saraya is relieved but Skye is frustrated as she stalks Harley. Skye fireman’s carries but Harley fights with elbows. Harley ROCKS Skye, whips her to a corner, but Skye reverses. Skye runs in, but Harley goes up and over to sunset flip! TWO!! Skye escapes, stands up, but Harley wrenches for some SOLE FOOD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives and Harley is shocked! Saraya says she’s still proud of Harley, though.

Harley drags Skye up but Skye drags her into a cradle! TWO and Harley mule kicks. Harley runs to SHINING WIZARD! Cover, TWO!! Skye survives again and Harley is furious! 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!

Winner: Skye Blue, by submission

Saraya can’t believe what just happened! But Skye is rising, will she finally be golden for the Summer?

 

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 waistlocks, Cassidy switches and shoves Taven into Bennett. Cassidy then back drops Taven, and has hands up! Bennett runs up but Cassidy blocks the kick. Cassidy spins Bennett, headlocks, but Bennett powers up and out. Cassidy tags Kyle, dodges Bennett, then puts hands in pockets before bailing. Bennett runs around and Kyle KICKS! And KICKS!

Taven apologizes and says he still doesn’t wanna fight. But then he pokes Kyle in the eyes! Taven says that is why he doesn’t wanna do this. But Cassidy runs in to tilt-o-whirl. 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 talks smack on Cassidy, goes to the ring, but Kyle catches him for a SLEEPER! Bennett JAWBREAKERS free, then waistlocks. Kyle switches, hops on, SLEEPER BACKPACK! 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.

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!

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
